Community association pushes for more consultation over urban design

URBAN ANXIETY BY TIFFANY PILCHER

THE Ocean Grove Community Association (OGCA) has proposed several changes and is calling for further community consultation ahead of the draft Ocean Grove Urban Design Framework (UDF) being put to council for adoption next month. Community issues with the draft dominated discussions at the association’s annual general meeting last Wednesday night, with a number of areas highlighted as key points of concern. Decreasing traffic and increasing the number of car parks in the town centre

was again at the top of the list of matters residents and traders want reassessed. If the draft is adopted as it stands, up to 96 off-street car parks will be lost around thoroughfares of The Parade, The Terrace, Hodgson Street and The Avenue. OGCA chairperson John Fendyk acknowledged the negative impact these changes could have on local businesses, residents and tourists. “We need to make sure in any rethinking of the town centre, that parking spaces are not diminished in any way. “We want to make the township safe but we do not want to lose any parking; in fact, we need more.

“During the summertime, Ocean Grove goes gangbusters and it’s difficult enough as it is to get into the town centre and find a park. “If parking is reduced it will make it more difficult and frustrating for people to go shopping.” Ensuring recognition of the need for a town hall was noted in the draft was another key issue raised. “We feel there is a need for some sort of facility now, and with the rate of residential expansion in the area, there will definitely be a need in the future. “This was not noted in the draft and as it’s something the community is clearly

calling for; we want that to be noted before it is taken on by council.” Other issues raised included: • The need for more footpaths in the town centre and surrounding areas • Opposition to the proposed height increase of buildings on The Terrace, and • Further consideration needed regarding changes to the entrance to the Terrace. “Many people from Ocean Grove are attending forums to both input and comment on the content and ensure the plan fixes the existing traffic constraints, creates new business opportunities and protects and enhances

the existing coastal character of the town,” Mr Fendyk said. “We are making a strong recommendation to have further consultation with the community regarding setting priorities and ensuring funding for projects.” In an update on the UDF, the City of Greater Geelong said more than 100 submissions had been received on the draft, which is a far greater response than they have had to other similar projects in the region. Council officers are now considering all submissions and the draft will be considered for adoption in June.

BARWON COAST UPDATE BARWON Coast, your local coastal foreshore manager, has the responsibility for the management of 13 kilometres of coastal Crown land from Collendina to Blue Rocks including our beautiful beaches in Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads and 13th Beach. We are also the manager of the Port of Barwon Heads and operate two large coastal caravan parks – Barwon Heads Caravan Park and the Riverview Family Caravan Park, Ocean Grove plus the Riverside Camping area. Our committee members are all local residents from Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads and are appointed by the state government following the public advertising for expressions of interest. Whale migration Whale migration is a common phenomenon along the Barwon Coast. Between the months of May to August we should start to see the migration of Humpback Whales that are leaving the summer conditions of the Antarctic to head to Queensland waters to breed. This time of the year we should also start to see the migration of the Southern Right Whales, which will be heading to Warrnambool for the birthing of their calves. Different animals use different methods to navigate their way around the landscape. This may be by the sun, stars, wind, landmarks or the Earth’s magnetic field. Victoria has already received a couple of early sightings of Humpback Whales, and we are keen to hear from members of the public of any whale sightings you may experience along our coastline. We would love to receive your photos and verbal reports of your sightings. It is important to note, the

date, times, direction of travel, and location. These sightings provide valuable information for us all to gain further knowledge and understanding of what’s happening not only locally but globally. Domestic animals – coastal impact Unfortunately it is not uncommon for our staff to observe domestic animals wandering through the coastal reserves. When we capture lost dogs and cats from the coastal reserves we first check for micro-chipping information so that we can contact the owners and get them to collect their pets. If the micro-chipping data is not current or in fact non existant we have with no choice but to hand the animals into the Geelong Animal Welfare Centre in hope that the owners care enough to ring the centre with a view to reclaim their pets. To prevent your pets wandering ensure they are kept in a safe yard and please update your contact details with your vet and the City of Greater Geelong to ensure your beloved pets can be returned to you quickly. Should you have a missing pet, call the Geelong Animal Welfare Centre on 5248 2091. Remember that the City of Greater Geelong introduced cat confinement in February 2010 and those regulations introduced a curfew that requires that all cats must be confined inside your house or garage between sunset and sunrise. State championships – IRBs One of the keys to the operation of safe beaches is the use by Life Saving Clubs of Inflatable Rescue Boats (IRB) that can get out through shore breaks to swimmers in distress in very quick time. To assist in training crews for the IRBs, a winter competition series is held by Life Saving Victoria

with event such as Surf and Team Rescue Round 3 of this year’s competition will be held at Ocean Grove on May 25 and will culminate in the holding of the state titles at 13th Beach on July 5 and 6. I encourage you to contact me to discuss any issues related to coastal management in our region by phoning me on 5254 1118.

Geelong council budget brings CBD into focus BY JAMES TAYLOR CITY of Greater Geelong mayor Darryn Lyons has delivered a “community-led” budget that focuses on the Geelong CBD, jobs and maintaining community assets. The council released its draft 2014-15 budget for public discussion on Tuesday night. Rates will increase by 4.51 per cent, which Cr Lyons said was the lowest rise in the G21 region and was shaped to keep the burden on ratepayers down. Cr Lyons said Geelong’s CBD had been neglected for between 20-25 years. “Last year’s mayoral campaign and recent surveys of residents have made it very clear that the revitalisation of central Geelong is the community’s top priority, and to this end we have committed a record $7 million for city centre projects.” This figure includes $2 million for lighting in the CBD as well as other wards. Cr Lyons said the details would be put to tender but he hoped lighting would be set up in many of the key trading precincts, including Ocean Grove, Belmont and Grovedale. There will be $132 million in capital works

spending. Of the 207 projects suggested by people through the Community Concepts program, the council has 16 of them at a total cost of $1.34 million. These include stage 2 of the Leopold Community Hub, a community and visitor information centre in Portarlington and upgrading the clubrooms of the Leopold Football and Netball Club. The campaign for a pier at Clifton Springs – as reported by the Bellarine Times in February – has been recognised, with $150,000 committed towards a new T-shaped fishing pier, but the budget notes it is a project that is dependent on external funding before it can start. The budget includes funding aimed at creating new investment and new jobs, including $3.8 million to develop land for sale at the Geelong Ring Road Employment Precinct, plus allocations for the Geelong Centre for Infectious Emerging Diseases, an investment strategy for central Geelong and an overall economic development strategy to be implemented by Enterprise Geelong. Maintenance of public infrastructure has increased from $61.2 million last year to $64.4 million.

Community meeting puts a light on traffic issues BY REBECCA LAUNER TRAFFIC congestion, a proposed service station, pedestrian lights and roads were the hot topics at a recent public meeting in Drysdale. About 70 concerned residents, along with Bellarine MP Lisa Neville and Liberal candidate for Bellarine Ron Nelson, attended the Drysdale Clifton Springs Community Association’s meeting on traffic management. DCSCA secretary Neil McGuinness said at the meeting the group learnt that traffic congestion in

Drysdale’s High Street and Jetty Road was a major issue and getting worse. “The proposed construction of a service station at 331-334 Jetty Road was unanimously unpopular as it will significantly worsen congestion at both the above locations, and cause several safety and environmental issues,” he said. “The pedestrian lights in High Street are considered a major contribution to congestion and the community wants a traffic study to be undertaken to investigate traffic congestion and recommend improvements.”

Mr McGuinness said a proposal to block off Coryule Road half way through the new development was also unpopular as it would increase traffic congestion in Jetty Road. “The proposal to install traffic lights where the Rail Trail crosses Jetty Road was considered a waste of money. “The community cannot understand why this would be considered a priority over other more urgent issues. Traffic lights should be installed where both the Rail Trail and the rail line cross Princess Street. “This was considered a much higher priority than

the Jetty Road crossing.” Mr McGuinness said it was also unacceptable the proposed new road, which will connect the new Jetty Road developments to the Portarlington Road, would be constructed at an unknown date in the future, when the developers considered it appropriate. “The community considers that road infrastructure should ideally be constructed before the housing, but at least at the same time,” he said. Mr McGuinness said the community considered the Drysdale Ring Road a priority, to reduce congestion and get trucks out of Drysdale High Street.

Safe walking tracks mark the start of a healthy initiative BY REBECCA LAUNER THE Portarlington Primary School community is encouraging its students to walk to school by making it a fun and safe activity. Last week, the school launched its new Walk to School Markers, which are colourful starting points for clearly marked safe walking tracks of differing travel times. The markers give parents the opportunity to park their cars at a designated area before walking with their children to school.

Portarlington Primary School’s Healthy Together Team said with only a small number of children walking or riding to school on a regular basis, the school came up with the idea to create a supportive environment that encouraged and enhanced physical activity opportunities. “Strategies such as encouraging and supporting active travel to and from school, sports, recess, active classroom lessons, and before and after school activities can help the whole-of-school community to achieve their recommended daily physical activity levels, leading to better health, development

and academic performance,” the team said. “Physical activity for children and young people is recognised as essential for their optimum physical development, and for establishing behavioural habits that are crucial to life-long health and wellbeing.” The school community has registered with the City of Greater Geelong’s “Healthy Together Geelong” project to improve the health of the community where they live, learn and play. To help meet the benchmarks of the Achievement Program, the school applied for a grant from Vic Health to develop the marker project.

Neighbourhood in need BY REBECCA LAUNER THE building the Ocean Grove Neighbourhood Centre occupies is so unsuitable teachers are forced to carry out classes outside. Centre assistant manager Julie Long said the lack of space meant many lessons were taught on the verandah, which meant students were exposed to extreme heat in summer and the cold during winter and staff were also forced to knock back most room rental bookings. The centre is meant to be moving to the old maternal and child health centre on John Dory Drive, which has become available since the health centre was moved to the Boorai

Centre on Shell Road. However, the facility needs upgrading, which is why Bellarine MP Lisa Neville has called on Regional and Rural Development Minister Peter Ryan to provide $500,000 to ensure the renovation can go ahead. The City of Greater Geelong has made the project a priority and committed $950,000, and the committee of management of the Neighbourhood Centre has committed $250,000. Ms Neville said earlier this year, the council made a submission to Regional Development Victoria seeking $500,000 from the state government through the Putting Locals First program.

Cash flows for Shell Road BY TIFFANY PILCHER THE long-awaited funding needed to build the Shell Road Reserve sports pavilion will come through after it was officially revealed in the federal budget announcement last night. The $3.5 million election promise made by Corangamite MP Sarah Henderson during last year’s campaign was honoured in the announcement and will fulfil the funding requirements for the project along with $2 million contributed by the City of Greater Geelong. “It’s been a long time coming for Ocean Grove and I know the pavilion will make big a difference to the sporting lives of many in our community,� Ms Henderson said.

In announcing the commitment in August, Ms Henderson said she was overjoyed to bring the 20-year campaign for better facilities to an end. “I’m literally jumping out of my skin with excitement as it’s been a very difficult journey and a very long journey. I’m so delighted that it will come to an end.� The new pavilion is expected to attract more players and opportunities for Ocean Grove sporting clubs as well as increased interest and support from community members. Construction is under way now at the Shell Road site and Ms Henderson said she hopes the pavilion will be up and running by the start of the 2016 winter sports season. For more federal budget news, visit surfcoasttimes.com.au.

“The building that the neighbourhood centre currently occupies is nowhere near the standard it should be to safely and appropriately accommodate the many people and groups throughout the year,� Ms Neville said. “Council has allocated the old children’s services building to the neighbourhood centre, but the building is in desperate need of refurbishment and extending. “This includes new electrical wiring, internal joinery and external drainage, and the installation of a fire hydrant. “The building also needs to be extended to include additional community rooms, a kitchen and public toilet facilities.�

Bellarine MP Lisa Neville with Ocean Grove Neighbourhood Centre manager Nicki Dunne and assistant manager Julie Long outside the old children’s services building in John Dory Drive that the council has allocated to the organisation.

Community ups ante against Ann Nichol sale BY REBECCA LAUNER MEMBER for Bellarine Lisa Neville says the Portarlington community is more invigorated to fight the sale of Ann Nichol House following some recent revelations. Ms Neville said concerned residents were taken aback at the weekend after reading comments made by Minister for Health and Aging David Davis that he supports the Bellarine Community Health Board’s decision to privatise the not-forprofit residential aged care facility. Ms Neville said she was also disappointed to hear BCH was threatening legal action against some individuals and organisations. “It’s very disappointing Bellarine Community Health is condemning people when all they

have done is stand up for the community,� Ms Neville said. “The community won’t be silenced.� MEANWHILE, the Ann Nichol House “keep it public� support group is calling on the Liberal candidate for Bellarine Ron Nelson to publicly declare his position on Ann Nichol House being sold to a private company. Convenor John Turner said the group had asked Cr Nelson to back the community he wanted to represent and request the process be paused. “Cr Nelson can personally approach his Liberal Party colleague David Davis, Minister for Health and Ageing, and ask him not to transfer public land to a private company until every option for Ann Nichol House is fully and openly explored,� Mr Turner said.

Arts walk a magical journey for HUNDREDS of people discovered the unique landscape of our region at the weekend when they took part in an adventurous arts experience. Mountain to Mouth (M~M2014) was a 24-hour extreme arts walk from the top of the You Yangs to the mouth of the Barwon River. The journey started mid afternoon on Friday at the You Yangs’ Big Rock and finished at dusk on Saturday at the mouth of the Barwon River. People walked one or more stages of the 80-kilometre pathway and along the way enjoyed music, visual arts, storytelling, sports and local produce. The route was divided into 12 stages varying in distance from three to 14 kilometres. Community ambassadors were flag bearers of the 12 municipal wards, and each stage featured a walking circle created by local artists. Water from the Big Rock waterhole in the You Yangs was carried to the mouth of the Barwon River in a symbolic canoe which was burnt on the water as part of the closing ceremony on Saturday night. Workshops were also held to create hundreds of lanterns that were part of the journey and the Closing Ceremony (with a “fire on water” theme) at dusk at the Barwon River mouth. The event reversed the course of the Mouth to Mountain contemporary songline event that saw water carried from the mouth of the Barwon River to Big Rock in the You Yangs in 2009.

neighbourhood house week

Thursday 15 May 2014

NATIONAL Volunteer Week is a time each year when not-for-profit organisations that rely on volunteers collectively take the time to celebrate and thank their volunteers. Meanwhile, the theme for Neighbourhood House Week this year is being, belonging, becoming - be yourself, belong to a community, become amazing. The two celebrations coincide this week from May 12 to 18. Here is what some of our Neighbourhood Houses on the Bellarine have been doing.

Abdul Samad thrives after some care and friendship ASYLUM seeker Abdul Samad has flourished since becoming a regular at the Bellarine Living and Learning Centre. Abdul Samad started visiting the Whittington centre less than a year ago to access Foodbank, when he couldn’t speak English and needed help becoming involved in Aussie life. But today, the young man is flourishing, his English has improved dramatically and he is a popular daily volunteer himself performing a variety of duties.

Dennis is well on his way to regularly dancing with joy DENNIS Jones is well on his way to realising his dream of holding regular family dances at Drysdale. A while ago, Mr Jones decided he wanted to attend dances in Drysdale rather than drive to Melbourne. For a year he tried to inspire people to come to regular dances at SpringDale and some people started to regularly attend. Then he offered to organise a family dance as part of the 100-year celebrations of the SpringDale Hall and more than 80 people came to that event. Mr Jones has continued to hold quarterly dances that have attracted enough people to break even or almost. But he wants to see the community support his dream of regular family dances. So, to support this dream he decided to ask Bendigo Bank for a grant to help fund a sound system for the SpringDale Hall and start up his own band to play at the dances. Mr Jones was successful in receiving the grant

with little help and he has inspired more than 30 people to volunteer and play in the SpringDale Open Dance Band. The band has also played on Australia Day and at the Bunyip Festival, both local events within the community For more information, phone coordinator Anne Brackley on 5253 1960.

Dennis Jones, right, wants to see the community support his dream of regular family dances.

After meeting Abdul Samad, BLLC discovered, through an interpreter, that he and around 60 others were asylum seekers who had been relocated from detention centres to Geelong (many have now moved on to Melbourne). BLLC volunteers rallied and after determining their needs, and government imposed limitations, set up English classes twice a week, additional food and material goods availability and general assistance as needs arose.

Abdul Samad has flourished under the attention and friendship of BLLC’s volunteers and he tells them their friendship has helped relieve his depression and homesickness. BLLC’s volunteers and staff have become more supportive and knowledgeable about asylum seekers and their reasons for fleeing their countries and the issues of resettling in Australia.

Improvement works ramp up in St Leonards BELLARINE Bayside is planning to give the St Leonards boat ramp a facelift. During winter, workers will upgrade the boat ramp area to improve traffic flow and parking, while also providing safe access for users of the coastal trail in that area. Bellarine Bayside chief executive officer Kevin Craig said the St Leonards boat ramp was one of the most popular ramps on the Bellarine Peninsula and the project would help ensure it operated efficiently during summer when up to 400 vessels could be launched in a day. The works include resurfacing the car park, formalising the car/trailer parking, improving traffic

management and flow, upgrading the coastal trail and improving pedestrian and cycle connectivity through the area. Prior to construction, a stakeholder workshop will be held to discuss the project and gain feedback. The project is funded by the state government’s boating safety and facilities program and Bellarine Bayside, through revenue generated from our local holiday parks. For more information on the project and the community workshop, call Julia Stanley on 5254 4010 or email info@bellarinebayside.com. au.

Protect humanity and compassion Dear Editor, I wish to respond to Ray Page (“No mention of illegal”, Letters, May 1). Ray, what crime exactly have these people committed to make them illegal and which queue is it that they have jumped? And would you not spend every last cent you had and take any risk to save your family if their lives were at certain risk? The UN Refugee Convention specifically acknowledges that those fleeing persecution and or war sometimes must travel through irregular or non-official ways and may not always have proper documentation. Returning people seeking our protection back in to the hands of the very people from whom they are seeking protection – as we have done with thousands of Sri Lankan asylum seekers – is illegal as we have a legal obligation not to return anyone to a situation where they might face torture and or wrongful detention. The indefinite detention of people without charge is illegal. More than 1,000 people have been on Manus for 18 months, yet not a single person has had their refugee claims processed and not a single person has been resettled. It is not illegal to seek asylum – it is a basic human right. If you are facing political or religious persecution, you have a right to travel to another country and seek protection any which way you can. The government may appear to be stopping boats but it is certainly not saving lives. It’s not our borders that need protecting, Ray, it’s our humanity and lost compassion.

boat arrivals. I suggest the term refugee and asylum seeker are much the same as both are seeking to escape from a war-torn country or persecution within the country of origin. However, people who use the services of people smugglers have been arriving via Indonesia, which does not fit this definition, many with no identification and most people understand that these people are not seeking asylum or are refugees, they are predominately men and children seeking a better life, but pay people smugglers to bypass the queue. Australia supports the UN Refugee Convention which outlines the process for countries to accept genuine refugees or asylum seekers, and in fact Australia accepts thousands of these people every year who have the correct paper work and wait their turn. What has been occurring over the past six years, due to Labor Party policy supported by the Greens, is people have been bypassing the accepted process and coming here illegally, preventing genuine refugees their chance. I note Jan outlines the costs involved, which is substantial. I am sure, like me, Jan is pleased that the federal government has now decided to close detention centres in Australia as the boats have stopped, so the costs to the taxpayer will be significantly reduced. Also, the current federal policy on illegal boat arrivals will provide opportunities for genuine refugees and asylum seekers to be welcomed here. We can only hope that the current policy is not changed in the future and we return to the days of drownings and taxpayer funds used to support the illegal trade of people. Ray Page Torquay

She obviously does not know Sue O’Shanassy personally. “Millions of dollars”? “Hypercritical”? “Selling out”?

on the beach policing the regulations. Perhaps it is time for some formal complaints to council about this apparent failure. Mr Fredericks’ arrogance in implying that “‘if you don’t like the problem, move on”, is not uncommon these days. As a society, we are the poorer for this. I suggest to Mr Fredericks that law-abiding and community-minded citizens have a right, and I would argue an obligation, to object to the behaviour of those who disregard the law and the well-being of their fellow citizens. To defend bad behaviour by dog-owners by pointing out the anecdotal benefits of dog-ownership is as specious as defending drink-drivers by highlighting the social utility of motor cars.

Dear Editor, In reply to recent articles in the Surf Coast Times about Torquay being the home of surfing in Australia. While most people in Torquay would think that rebranding Torquay as the home of surfing would have many benefits, I’m sure there would be surfers on the Gold Coast and in Sydney etc, who may disagree with this terminology. In principle, I think the idea has merit, especially as many surf companies call Torquay home and the Rip Curl Bells Beach pro event is known worldwide. What I think would really make Torquay stand out as the home of Australian surfing would be a series of statues similar to that which could be found at the MCG (Sir Donald Bradman, Ron Barassi, Dennis Lillee etc). In Hawaii there is such a statue commemorating Duke Kahanamoku as a surfing pioneer. Each year thousands of people take photos of these statues. I would suggest a series of Australian surfing heroes to be placed in Torquay that would immediately identify Torquay as a surf town. Statues of former Bells champions like Michael Peterson, Mark Richards or even this year’s champion Mike Fanning, or of former surfers such as China Gilbert, would be a good place to start and could be added to as time goes by.

Dear Editor, With the United Nations’ International Day of Families held today (May 15), it’s timely to remember the thousands of families across Australia torn apart by violence every year. Sadly, family violence is common and too many women and children still suffer at the hands of men. The mental health impact on those affected is huge. Recently, we’ve seen a groundswell of public outrage when high profile, tragic cases of family violence make the news. But there are still many people who are still prepared to excuse, trivialise or stand silent in the face of behaviour that’s abusive or harmful to women and their children. This is unacceptable. We all have a responsibility to work towards a society where violence is never excused and where perpetrators of violence are held accountable for their actions by everyone in the community. Later this year, VicHealth will release the most comprehensive research on community attitudes to violence against women and gender inequality ever undertaken in Australia. This will give us a clearer understanding of where the problem areas in our society are and what we must do to change damaging attitudes. It’s time to continue these frank and open discussions and to decide, as a community, what we can do to create lasting change for our daughters, mothers and sisters and imagine a future for them – and their children – that is violence free. Jerril Rechter VicHealth chief executive officer

Horses on nature strips Dear Editor, Who has right of way? A car driving or backing out of its driveway or horses being galloped along nature strips outside residential properties? This practice of horses being galloped on nature strips is totally irresponsible and could cause serious damage/injury to drivers, children, horses and cars, or worse. V.W. Drysdale

Road to Zero campaign Dear Editor, The state government should be commended for its new Road to Zero campaign which aims to cut the road toll, but RACV believes that this campaign needs to be backed by greater investment in improving the safety and quality of our state’s roads to be truly effective. While improving road user behaviour, which is the focus of Road to Zero, is a critical component of lowering the road toll, the campaign is ignoring how the standard of road design, construction and maintenance affects the safety of all motorists, bike riders and pedestrians. In regional Victoria, which continues to be disproportionately represented in the road toll, RACV’s Australian Road Assessment Program (which evaluates the safety performance of roads) has shown that many of the busiest sections of the road highway network are missing many basic and proven safety features. These include rumble strips on the edge of roads, sealed shoulders and wire rope safety barriers. Work is also needed on improving road maintenance, with potholes, poor line marking and worn surfaces presenting major safety hazards on roads across the state. Victoria’s success in driving down our road toll from more than 1000 deaths in 1970 to 242 last year

21

was a result of action from the community, changes in behaviour from drivers and improvements to vehicle safety and road design. Road to Zero, with its focus on improving road user behaviour and also increasing police enforcement, is a welcome start. But to successfully continue to cut the toll, RACV believes that the government needs to deliver much needed safety improvements to our state’s road network as an integral part of the campaign.

Reflecting on a local coalmine Dear Editor, The Surf Coast. What a stunning environment in which to live and to raise families. Breathtaking coastal scenery, the wonderful Great Otway National Park, and boundless opportunities to recreate and enjoy. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the one impediment to a healthy lifestyle here were to close down and to be reinvented for the 21st century. Alcoa is closing its Point Henry plant and has put the Anglesea coal mine and power plant on the market, an offer to a company anywhere in the world to continue to dig up the coal and to burn it. Alcoa is leaving. Imagine a lifestyle here without 35 million kg/ year of sulphur-dioxide raining down upon us, a known respiratory-system damaging and cancerinducing chemical. Reflect on a world where climate change could be slowed by converting to renewable energy. It is possible. Let’s take this window of opportunity to say loudly to our politicians that our health is not worth the price of coal mining. Surf Coast Air Action is driving a campaign for clean air and to create jobs in eco-tourism. Our survey is showing overwhelming support for the “Shut it Down” campaign.

MAV slaps Labor’s council rates cap BY JAMES TAYLOR COUNCILS across the Geelong region are considering rate increases as they release their draft budgets, but a proposal by the Victorian Opposition to cap rates has been heavily criticised by the Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV). Earlier this month, Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews said a reelected Labor state government would force councils to limit rate increases to the same level as the Consumer Price Index (CPI). Councils that wished to raise rates above CPI could appeal to the Essential Services Commission. Mr Andrews said under Labor, councils would have to detail where every dollar would be spent. “The days of ratepayers footing the bill for Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonators are over. “This policy also sends a clear message that we expect councils to keep their rates in line with CPI, any increases above this must provide a clear benefit to ratepayers.” However, MAV president Cr Bill McArthur said it was a “shortsighted policy to gain voters” and would “wreak long-term

WIN

community pain for all Victorians”. “Daniel Andrews has effectively endorsed a failed Kennett reform that has hurt ratepayers for two decades and been a key factor in successive rate rises to address crumbling community infrastructure. “Voters thought Kennett’s rate rise restrictions in the early 1990s were a great idea until they felt the consequences of this reform. “There is strong evidence that it severely damaged the development and liveability of all Victorian communities. “Rate rise restrictions leave councils with two main choices – reduce services relied on by communities or reduce capital spending to maintain assets. National studies continue to show the quality of New South Wales local infrastructure is lower than other states, primarily as a consequence of years of rate capping.” Cr McArthur said that if Mr Andrews seriously believed that council budgets and spending – “already the most transparent of any level of government in this country” – deserved greater restraint then he should also promise an equal playing field for state budgets and taxes.

New ambo station progressing well CONSTRUCTION of a new ambulance station at Leopold has begun and is progressing well. Ambulance Victoria group manager of Barwon Terry Marshall said he expected workers would finish the station, which is located next to Caltex on the Bellarine Highway, in the second half of the year. “One of the branch’s unique features is that it is a warehouse-style facility, which provides flexibility for further expansion,” Mr Marshall said. “It also allows staff and emergency response vehicles to be parked

undercover, with ability to hold extra vehicles for adhoc community events such as cycling and Surf Coast events. “The branch will also include study and training facilities for paramedics.” Mr Marshall said Ambulance Victoria started operating new ambulance crews in the Geelong area in December 2013 and these crews would be based at Leopold when construction was finished. “We are very much looking forward to having a permanent presence in the Leopold area as soon as possible for the benefit of the community,” he said.

Caldwell to play at Commonwealth Games BY TIFFANY PILCHER FORMER Anglesea netballer Tegan Caldwell is preparing to make her international debut after being chosen for the Australian Commonwealth Games team. She will represent Australia at the games to be held in Glasgow in July. The Melbourne Vixens goal attack has been an Australian Diamonds squad member since 2012 and said she was determined to put her best foot forward during the three match play trials. “I knew that if I played well they (selectors) would have to consider me at least, that was my aim, go out and play really well and leave it up to them. “It was a good result in the end, I’m super excited and really looking forward to the experience and being out there with the girls.”

Caldwell, 25, first took up netball at the age of 7 with the Anglesea Football Netball Club under the guidance of her netball-mad parents. She said that’s where she discovered her love of the game before going on to play for Geelong and the VNL All Stars teams. “Living in a small town, we all went to Anglesea Primary School and played either football or netball on the weekend – it’s just what we all did and we loved it,” she said. “I was lucky that my parents were my trainers and they really encouraged me, they’ve played a big part in getting me to where I am today.” Goal attack Tegan Caldwell in action during a Melbourne Vixens match. The former Anglesea netballer has been selected to play for the Commonwealth Games squad in Glasgow this July.

Security blanket warms Geelong commuters BY JAMES TAYLOR TRAVELLERS at Geelong Railway Station now have an extra layer of security with Protective Services Officers (PSOs) taking to the platform for the first time last week. Minister for Police and Emergency Services Kim Wells visited PSOs at Geelong rail station during their induction on May 6 to announce Geelong was the third of four regional stations to receive PSOs. “Today’s announcement is a major investment in community safety for Geelong and part of the Victorian Coalition Government’s commitment to building a better and safer Victoria,” Mr Wells said. “A total of 701 PSOs have now been deployed

across 114 stations, patrolling from 6pm until after the last train every night. “PSOs have been welcomed by Melbourne rail commuters, and the Coalition government is proud to deliver on our commitment to deploy PSOs to one of Victoria’s major regional centres. “PSOs are an important part of the Coalition government’s effort to target crime, violence and anti-social behaviour. “Their presence will keep commuters safe by patrolling the train platform, car parks and surrounds to prevent property damage, and alcohol and transport related crime.” He said the Coalition government would recruit and deploy 940 PSOs to suburban rail stations and major regional centres by November, as part of a $212 million investment.

“The Coalition government recently announced another significant investment in community safety, providing $13.5 million for the rollout of tasers to all 24-hour police stations across regional Victoria, including Geelong.” South Barwon MP Andrew Katos welcomed the announcement. “People who use trains have told us that they welcome the rollout of PSOs at rail stations,” he said. “Their presence helps to reduce crime on our rail stations and also increases perceptions of safety for Victorians who might otherwise avoid train travel at night. “I am pleased that commuters who use the busy Geelong rail station will now feel safer knowing Some of the PSOs who are now on duty in the evenings at Geelong railway station. they are protected by PSOs.”

Landcare celebrates 25th birthday with grants

Schools, preschools and youth groups can apply for grants of up to $1,000 from Landcare.

S RE E R ITU C A RN 2 U F F O

LANDCARE Australia is celebrating its 25th year across the nation by giving a boost to its popular Junior Landcare program, with the launch of 25 grants of up to $1,000. Another 25 grants to the same value are up for grabs for Landcare groups to hold events and activities that will help grow the grassroots movement. Schools, preschools and youth groups can apply for the Planting the Future Junior Landcare Grants, which are being offered for any project that falls under the banner of Landcare, including school gardens, recycling or sustainability projects, with the aim of fostering and encouraging the next generation of Landcarers. Landcare Week Grow Grants are available for Landcare groups to help increase volunteer participation, with the focus being on assisting

community groups with events to be held in September – when Landcare is launched as a national initiative. Landcare Australia chief executive officer Tessa Jakszewicz said Junior Landcare was encouraging young people to understand more about where food comes from and to play an active role in improving their environment, while the Landcare Week Grow Grants focused on expanding Landcare for all Australians. “As we celebrate 25 years of Landcare nationally, it’s fantastic to be able to offer this funding boost to groups and schools across the country. “It is through the generosity of supporters through our popular Workplace Giving program, that we are in a position to offer this funding, and I very much look forward to seeing the variety of projects

undertaken as a result. “At Landcare Australia, we recognise the importance of supporting Junior Landcare to help ensure the future of the Landcare movement. “Many great programs are organised by schools and youth groups on a daily basis across the nation and provide a great framework for learning in outdoor ‘living classrooms’. “I’m also delighted that we can help 25 community volunteer groups with their Landcare Week events, and hope that through the Landcare Week Grow Grants, many people who haven’t been involved in Landcare before will give it a shot.” Applications for both grants programs close on June 13.

Parrots crest horizon in quest for survival BY HAMISH BROOKS A RECENT sighting of a captive-bred orangebellied parrot in Anglesea is among a number of factors raising excitement for this weekend’s Bellarine survey of the endangered species. “Blue L Silver” (named for the indentifying bands attached to her left and right legs) was last seen at the breeding ground in Melaleuca, Tasmania, on April 15, before being sighted near Anglesea, between April 29 and May 2. The parrot, which was released at Melaleuca in November last year with 24 others, made it the 580-kilometre across Bass Strait (with a brief stopover on King Island) in two weeks. She was the first captive-bred OBP seen on the mainland in 2014, but up to four sightings of other captive-bred OBPs have been reported since. Looking forward to this weekend’s OBP survey on the Bellarine Peninsula, Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) biodiversity officer Rachel Pritchard said she was especially interested in news of the visiting captivebred parrots released last year. “Our volunteers will be helping us to search for these birds so we can learn about how captive-bred birds migrate, and what they do during their first winter in the wild.” Ms Pritchard said the last four years had seen an increased breeding success rate for the parrot in the wild, which, in addition to the recent release, had seen their numbers increase. “For quite a while I’ve been saying each year that fewer than 50 birds have been migrating from Tasmania. This is the first year I can say more than 50 have done so.” The survey on May 17 and 18 is the first of three annual OBP counts that are a nationally coordinated search for the birds in Victoria, north west Tasmania and south east South Australia.

Bellarine Peninsula orange-bellied parrot regional coordinator Craig Morley said he was excited more of the critically endangered parrots could be found on the Bellarine Peninsula. “Volunteers often spend a long time searching wetlands and saltmarshes in wintery conditions, and only the lucky few will find an orange-bellied parrot.”

To get involved in the May, July or September winter counts, or for more information on the orange-bellied parrot, visit birdlife.org.au/projects, call 136 186, or email volunteer@birdlife.org.au. The wild OBP population stands at about 70, with 329 parrots in a captivebreeding program.

Councils can now access grants of up to $25,000 to combat graffiti in local neighbourhoods as part of the state government’s graffiti grants program. The grants are open to councils to partner with local organisations such as schools, community and residents groups; and local police, retailers and trader associations, to come up with local solutions to tackle graffiti. This might include design features such as murals, education and information programs, and graffiti removal projects. Polwarth MP Terry Mulder encouraged councils to think about graffiti solutions that would improve the visual amenity of neighbourhoods and increase community confidence in the safety of public places. Applications close on June 20. To apply and for more information, visit crimeprevention.vic.gov.au/graffitigrants.

Lorne hospital celebrates volunteer week LORNE Community Hospital said “Thanks a million” as it celebrated the work of its volunteers, as part of National Volunteers Week this week. Celebrations got underway at the hospital to acknowledge their 28 volunteers with a morning tea at Otway Health in Apollo Bay. This was a fantastic opportunity for volunteers to share their stories and hospital staff to formally thank volunteers for the compassionate work that they do for the hospital and its patients. Joy Dwyer, volunteer coordinator at Lorne Community Hospital said the volunteering program was upgraded in 2009 with a grant from “Count us In”. “We have a fantastic group of people with a diverse range of skills and life experience who offer their time and services to the hospital. “Their contribution greatly enhances the personal care we can provide to patients and the local community.” Ms Dwyer said the hospital’s volunteers undertake a broad set of roles including: administrative tasks,

gardening, assisting with the aged care residents, providing music and singing for the residents, massage, pet therapy, driving the community bus, taking community members to appointments out of Lorne and much more. Volunteering Australia estimates that more than 6 million people volunteer annually in Australia. Lorne Community Hospital chief executive officer Kate Gillan said many people chose to volunteer at the hospital after being a patient there or having had a loved one attend the hospital as a patient. “In a small community such as Lorne, we are so grateful for the large number of volunteers that assist our rural hospital. “Our volunteers are energetic, passionate and caring. It’s heart-warming that they wish to ‘give back’ to help others and, of course, we are immensely grateful that they do.” If you are interested in volunteering at the Lorne Community Hospital, visit lornecommunityhospital.com.au or contact Joy Dywer on 5289 4315 or for more information.

Let’s travel and talk in Geelong MasterChef to again visit the region BY JAMES TAYLOR BY JAMES TAYLOR TOURISM Australia managing director John O’Sullivan and much sought-after international speaker Anna Pollock have been announced as speakers at the inaugural Victorian Tourism Conference, which will be held in Geelong on July 14-15. This comes as great news for the event’s organisers, the Victorian Tourism Industry Council, and the more than 200 attendees expected to be at the conference. Ms Pollock is founder of Conscious Travel, a new approach to organising tourism as an alternative model to mass industrial tourism, and has 40 years’ experience as a consultant, strategist, speaker, and change agent. Described as an irrepressibly curious “renaissance woman”, her strength derives from an ability to dig beneath surface trends to find and make sense of the real drivers of change combined with a creative capacity to develop innovative responses. Mr O’Sullivan joined Tourism Australia in January from Fox Sports where he was

employed as chief operating officer. He previously held executive positions with Events Queensland (chief executive from 2010 to 2012), and Football Federation Australia (chief commercial officer from 2004 to 2010) as well as the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Organising Committee, the 1995 Rugby World Cup and 1994 World Masters Games. Some of the other speakers at the conference include: • Lachlan Smirl, Deloitte’s national leader for tourism, hospitality and leisure • Dr Jason Fox from Motivation Strategy and Design • Expermedia founder Trevor Young • Carillo Gantner AO, philanthropist and chair of the Melbourne International Arts Festival • Dr J Patrick Greene OBE from Melbourne Museum, and • Bendigo Art Gallery director Karen Quinlan. The conference is expected to contribute more than $134,000 to the region’s economy. For tickets and more information, head to victourismconference.com.au.

THE Great Ocean Road and the Otway region will feature in season 6 of TV series MasterChef Australia, which began last week. The MasterChef Australia kitchen has fired up at the Royal Melbourne Showgrounds and will feature some of Victoria’s and Australia’s favourite chefs such as Darren Purchese, Frank Camorra and Maggie Beer, along with international superstar Marco Pierre White, who will mentor contestants in some of the best Victorian restaurants and iconic locations. The final 24 contestants this year include former Anglesea resident Sam Gant. The show provides a platform to showcase Melbourne and Victoria’s regions, fresh produce, chefs and culinary credentials, strengthening Victoria’s position as Australia’s leading culinary state. Key Melbourne foodie icons including St Kilda and Queen Victoria Night Markets will be featured as off-site challenges in this series, together with selected locations such as the Great Ocean Road and Otway region. Last season, contestants undertook a

MasterClass under the supervision of guest chef Aaron Turner at Barwon Heads restaurant At The Heads, with filming taking place inside and on the beach. MasterChef Australia executive producer Margaret Bashfield said the program had been spoilt for choice when selecting top quality Victorian chefs for the MasterChef kitchen, excellent restaurants and well-known locations. Minister for Tourism and Major Events Louise Asher welcomed the return of MasterChef, and said it was set to boost the profile of the state’s food and wine offerings and, importantly, encourage visitation to Melbourne and regional Victoria. “Programs such as MasterChef Australia reinforce Melbourne’s credentials as a worldclass food and wine destination to audiences both nationally and internationally.” National audience viewership for season 5 of MasterChef Australia was strong, and international broadcasting of the 2013 series provided global exposure in key markets for Victoria including New Zealand, India, UK, Netherlands, Asia, Sweden, Norway and Denmark and the Middle East.

Workshop to unveil Barwon Heads habitat quality BY TIFFANY PILCHER A COLLECTION of environmental groups are coming together in Barwon Heads to host a workshop on measuring the quality of local habitats on May 24, and there will be pizza. Barwon Heads Sustainability Group, Barwon Heads Community Arts Garden, Ocean Grove Coastcare and Friends of the Bluff members will lead the Mapping Plants, Making Pizza workshop to be held at the Barwon Heads Community Arts Garden from 3pm to 6pm. The event will be the first of its kind for the Bellarine and the participating groups will demonstrate how to use a Habitat Quality Assessment Tool to measure the habitat values of your property or any other piece of land you wish to measure. Anthony Mangelsdorf of the Barwon Heads Sustainability Group said the measurements will provide the basis for a new study of habitats in the area. “We will aggregate all the data collected, and use this to begin to map the overall habitat values in Barwon Heads and Ocean Grove. “This will form an important part of our new ‘Stories and Numbers’ project which aims to gather an annual snapshot of Barwon Heads, through the collection of stories and numbers, across a range of areas such as energy, waste, biodiversity and water.” There will also be delicious pizza’s available, made in the garden’s own woodfired oven.

Mr Costelloe said it was events like this that really brought the community together. “We’re excited about the possibilities these new ovals bring to Estuary and we’re encouraging kids to have a go at different sports,” Mr Costelloe said. “Leopold has a fantastic range of local sporting organisations available for our residents, so this is a good chance to showcase them as well. “We’re hoping that we might even be able to get a new soccer club up-and-running that will eventually call the new oval at Estuary home.

Mr Costelloe said Villawood held a community event over Christmas, which everybody loved and really got involved with. “We’re trying to build on and continue to deliver free events that our residents and the wider community enjoy,” he said. “We have various other community groups from Leopold supporting the event, such as the local CFA, which is fantastic. “It’s shaping up to be a really great day for all.” Villawood will also launch two new land releases on the day. The sports festival is on Sunday May 18. For more information contact the sales centre on 1300 737 598 or visit estuaryleopold.com.au/events.

Experts lead the conversation at Geelong College LAST Tuesday at Geelong College, students, staff, parents and the wider community faced up to some confronting gender based issues including the over-sexualisation of our society with guest speakers Melinda Tankard Reist and Heath Black. Ms Tankard-Reist, a Canberra-based writer, speaker and commentator with a special interest in issues affecting women and girls, spoke about the need to raise awareness and respond to the over-sexualisation of children in the contemporary media environment. Melinda challenged female Year 10, 11 and 12 students to be aware of how the media sets them up to be dissatisfied with their bodies in order to

“sell” an image which is both unrealistic and highly sexualised. She spoke about how pervasive the media can be, and especially disturbing was her research around how girls at an increasingly younger age were inappropriately encouraged to see themselves in sexual terms. “Some of what Melinda said and showed us made me really angry,” Gracie, a Year 12 student, said. “It makes me worry about the impact the media and adult industries will have on our relationships and the families of the future, but at least we are aware and can speak out.” Former AFL star Heath Black spoke to male Year 10, 11 and 12 students about the

impact of some very poor choices on his career and personal relationships, shared his battle with alcohol and mental illness and the devastating effects on him but and those around him. “We heard about Heath’s personal experiences and they really hit home,” Luke, a Year 11 student, said. “Working with him on being a good mate and not being complacent or a bystander when something is happening that is wrong was really valuable and I think we all learned or faced up to a lot.” Feedback from the sessions was overwhelmingly positive and Geelong College will build on this with gender specific groups through their Triple R social and emotional learning program.

FOR a small school, the breadth of the educational opportunities for students at Lorne Aireys Inlet P-12 College is extraordinary. That diversity is matched by its built environment: from the original nineteenth-century bluestone building that you see from the road, to the recently opened state-of-the-art teaching kitchen. Our college draws students from as far away as Anglesea, Bellbrae, Birregurra, Torquay, Deans Marsh, Kennett River and Wye River. Students are attracted by our values of mutual respect for each other, plus the qualities we aim to nurture in every student: persistence, confidence, organisation and getting along. The transition into Year 7 is seamless, of course, for students from the college’s primary campuses. But a very smooth transition also awaits Grade 6 students from other schools, as they have one teacher for about a third of all their classes while studying integrated studies as their core teaching in years 7 and 8. Year 7 and 8 students take part in integrated study and inquiry-based learning programs that give students a voice in the topics they study. In years 9 and 10, the students can take advantage of the college’s advanced program, and take part in adventure, leadership and community programs. This year we offer, with the assistance of the Bogong Outdoor Education Centre, a Future Leaders program. The Year 9 students go to Mount Beauty for two weeks in term four, undertaking a leadership and environmental program with a five-day hike as part of the adventure. Teacher-student relationships, in particular, are close, and with a number of classes at s enior levels being in single figures, individual attention at that crucial stage is even greater. Students who need extra help, or a greater challenge to extend their abilities, are well served. There is much scope for year 10 and 11 students to take classes at higher levels, frequently with the same subject

Christian College cultivates integrity, compassion and social responsibility CHRISTIAN College consists of four campuses throughout the Geelong region, from Pre-Kinder to Year 12, with expansion expected in the near future through a Surf Coast Campus (Pre-Kinder to Year 7) proposed to commence in 2017. A Christian College education strives to develop the spiritual, intellectual, physical and emotional capacity of students, and to enable them, through example and positive mentoring to become fine citizens with integrity, compassion and social responsibility.

National parks walk into restorative funding BY JAMES TAYLOR THE state government says it will restore visitor assets in Victoria’s world-class national parks with a $13.35 million investment in this year’s state budget. Premier Denis Napthine, who announced the funding earlier this month, said the money would go towards upgrading park assets such as walking tracks, boardwalks, roads, bridges and picnic tables. “As well as ($3 million towards) the Grampians, the $13.35 million investment in national parks will help Victorians get even more enjoyment out of other iconic Victorian holiday destinations, including Wilsons Promontory, the Otways along the Great Ocean Road and the Dandenongs.”

Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith said Victoria was extremely lucky to have these magnificent natural visitor hotspots on our doorstep and the state government was making sure they remained world-class destinations. “This announcement builds on the Coalition government’s plans to help more Victorians get out and enjoy the great environmental assets we have in our state. “I am proud of this latest commitment that will help preserve our landscapes and build better facilities at our most iconic visitor and tourist parks. “The Coalition government is committed to building a better Victoria by enabling Victoria’s regional economies to unlock tourism opportunities, The state budget includes $13.35 million for better facilities in Victoria’s national parks, including the Great build regional and rural economies and drive jobs.” Otway National Park.

VRFish applauds budget’s boating investments BY JAMES TAYLOR THE peak body for Victoria’s recreational fishers has welcomed the commitment from the state government for additional investment in recreational boating infrastructure announced in the 2014/15 state budget. VRFish chairman Russell Conway congratulated the state government and Minister for Ports David Hodgett for increasing the annual investment in recreational boating infrastructure

to $8 million. He said it recognised the more than $2.3 billion contributed by recreational fishing to the Victorian economy each year. “Improved boating infrastructure and better fishing access go hand in hand.” The state government is also investing $10.3 million for local ports maintenance and $3.4 million to upgrade and replace marine pollution response equipment. This is significant because it means that the $3 million increase to the annual Boating Safety

and Facilities Program funding will be able to be applied to increasing and improving the capacity of boat launching facilities, which serve 98 per cent of registered recreational boat owners. “This announcement is the result of constructive, sustained and informed discussions between VRFish and government on how to ensure investment in Victoria’s recreational fisheries and infrastructure provide lasting community benefits,” Mr Conway said.

VRFish said it was also encouraged with the intent shown by Mr Hodgett and the working group on recreational boating facilities, which was working towards a better delivery model to address the significant gap between boat launching capacity and demand at peak times. The organisation will soon release its election wish list on infrastructure and other fishing-related initiatives that aim to achieve continued growth for Victoria’s 720,000 recreational fishers.

Ocean Grove woman rallies to raise awareness of domestic violence BY REBECCA LAUNER JODI Dunell is not content to stand by as fellow Geelong and Bellarine women face the fear of domestic violence. So the Ocean Grove woman has rallied her local fitness group, JUMPT Personal Training and Development, to pull on their joggers and walk from Queenscliff to Drysdale to raise money for a Geelong based women’s service called Zena. Ms Dunell said the walk signified being able to “walk away” and have the strength of mind and body to keep on walking. “Many women simply feel there is nowhere to go and so stay in abusive relationships. We want them to know they are not alone and that there is a safe, understanding place for them if they need to flee.” Zena Women’s Services (ZWS) Inc is based in the Geelong area and provides information and support to women and their dependent children living in Geelong and on the Bellarine Peninsula, who have experienced domestic/family violence. The service also provides access to high security refuge accommodation to women assessed as being at high risk of further harm. Zena is run by women

solely for women and their children who have experienced, are experiencing or escaping domestic/ family violence. They receive 200 calls every month, with 40 of those engaging Zena’s services, and on average there are five cases every week that require intensive help, which may even include crisis accommodation outside of the Geelong area. Zena’s support service manager Clare said often the greatest victims of domestic violence were children, who often had to flee their home with little more than the clothes they are wearing. “While everyone agrees that children need to be protected, very few services are funded to offer support to children affected by violence. While this service is not well funded... our child support worker is the voice children need to express their fears, concerns and wishes.” The funds raised by Jumpt will go towards food vouchers, petrol, new mobile phones and phone credit and supporting children affected by violence. Anyone can join the challenge and join the walk from Queenscliff to Drysdale, but if you are unable to walk you can still help and support the cause by donating directly to Ms Dunell’s fundraising by calling her directly on 0416 266 607.

Soft option trial at Colac saleyards BY DEAN WEBSTER COLAC Livestock Selling Centre has started a trial of woodchip flooring in its first seven pens, following the completion of a roof over the facility. The trial will run for at least six months, and seek to determine the cost and benefits of wood chips compared to the existing rubber flooring used at the centre. Colac Otway Shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infrastructure and services general manager Phil Corluka said that like rubber, woodchips were softer on animalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hooves and lifted animal welfare standards at the centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will be monitoring how often the woodchips need to be aerated, topped up and replaced, and also the cost of disposing of them,â&#x20AC;? Mr Corluka said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These factors will be compared against the relative costs of maintaining the rubber flooring, and also the benefits the woodchips have offered saleyards users.â&#x20AC;? Colac Otway Shire is also looking to rename the saleyards when it officially launches the facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new $1.5 million roof. Acting chief executive officer Jack Green said the roof represented a significant investment by council to the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary producers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Agriculture is one of our shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main economic drivers and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vital that we have a premier saleyard facility to draw further trade to the region,â&#x20AC;? Mr Green said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is much more comfortable for buyers, agents and sellers, and is focused on animal welfare.â&#x20AC;? The council, in partnership with the Colac Stock Agentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Association and the Saleyard Advisory Committee will officially launch the roof on August 1. In the build up to that launch, the council is

calling for suggested names to be submitted on what the facility should be called. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want the saleyards to be rebranded in a way that establishes it as the premier selling centre in the Western District,â&#x20AC;? Mr Green said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also acknowledge the involvement of key local stakeholders, and we would like to include our community in helping to name the centre.â&#x20AC;? Colac Stock Agent Association president Terry Dove said that they were positioning themselves for the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Renaming the saleyards marks an exciting opportunity for all of our industry,â&#x20AC;? Mr Dove said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I urge everyone with an interest in the livestock industry game to submit the name they think will have the most impact.â&#x20AC;? Submission forms will be available at the livestock selling centre and the deadline for all submissions is July 11, after which a selection committee representing council and the industry will choose the future name.

RURAL ROUND-UP

Geelong livestock market report BY DEAN WEBSTER THE yarding of 270 cattle saw values for young cattle and bullocks firm with the top price realising $1,084 or 200 cents per kilogram for bullocks sold on account of J. Viggers of Lara. Due to a mild autumn with ample feed, many farmers were holding off taking their stock to market resulting in a reduced yarding of 270 cattle compared to 390 at the last yarding. Even though the yarding was down, the quality was up due to good autumn growth which allowed the

cattle to be presented in good order. Winchelsea farmer Bart Lauricella from “Canowindra” had a couple of pens of Angus steers sired by Murdeduke bulls that were sold by HF Richardson for a good result. His young vealers ranged from 437 to 450 kilograms and made $1.80 per kilogram yielding $810.00 for the tops of the pen. Bart said they had been in a good paddock with very little need to feed them due to the mild season they have been experiencing,

Geelong Lutheran College students and staff assembling their new kitchen garden.

BY DEAN WEBSTER VILLAWOOD Properties kicked off its community grants program at Armstrong for 2014 earlier this month with the sponsorship of a number of local organisations and sporting clubs. The groups received funds to boost their activities in the growing Armstrong community. Villawood Properties executive director Rory Costelloe said the program, now in its third year, was one of the developer’s most important initiatives. “These groups are the essence of our community and we want to do everything we can to assist in their continued growth, as the region grows

too,” Mr Costelloe said. “We’re going to have a number of kids with a broad range of interests grow up here at Armstrong, and we want them to have access to as many great community groups as possible. “We’re particularly excited to support Geelong Lutheran College and its brand-new involvement in the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program. “This program will see the school deliver regular kitchen and garden classes, enabling skills-based learning that extends across the entire school curriculum.” Geelong Lutheran College teacher and program project manager Kym Kingston said that the support from

Villawood Properties was welcomed and would provide a huge boost in getting the program up and running. “This is our second year as part of the Villawood Properties’ community grants program and the funds enabled the purchase of materials for both the garden beds and the rabbitproof fencing, which have just been constructed through a working bee,” Ms Kingston said. “We’re very excited to see our first group of students commence the program in the first week of May. “Our partnership with Villawood Properties is very important – their support is what makes projects like the Kitchen Garden sustainable.”

A whale waves to a kite surfer in a scene from Last Paradise. The film will be screened at Surf World Museum on Friday and Saturday night .

BY TIFFANY PILCHER WILD adventures and genius innovation will take centre stage in Torquay when Last Paradise comes to the big screen at Surf World Museum on Friday and Saturday night. The film is an inspiring and thought-provoking mix of science and extreme adventure travel that has been a lifetime in the making. In the remote wilderness, when necessity was the mother of invention, a maverick bunch of kids began experimenting with something that would change the world of adventure travel. In stunning original footage spanning 45 years, experience first-hand the adventures of early adrenalin seekers and join them on the roads less travelled to discover just how the world used to be and the science of restoring it. Filmed over four decades by Clive Neeson and a crew of extreme adventure pioneers, the original and breathtaking footage has been expertly restored by Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings technical team. The group shot much of the footage in the 60s and 70s while on a global quest for an adventure paradise. Through this unique original footage, a series of stories emerge with a relevance that connects to audiences, young and old.

In the end, their global search brings them home to Australia, the “Last Paradise”. Neeson said his passion for Australia’s perilous outdoors and the intensity of pushing himself to extremes began as a young child. “We captured on film the pioneering of extreme sports, that is, those which engage the wilderness and push the limits with the forces of nature. “It began with my mother, who was raised in an orphanage and escaped it all to become a wildlife cinematographer in Africa during the 1950s. “My parents raised four boys remotely and we all became addicted to that daily brush with danger. “I began filming at the age of 15 with a broken camera that I bought in a pawn shop because as a kid, I was driven by the dream of

wh w h this film would be.” what L Last Paradise weaves in issues of energy ddev development, deforestation, species loss and uurb urbanisation, but it’s all hidden under the bonnet of a eexhilarating cinema experience. an N Neeson has called it “his life’s work”. “ wanted to use the world’s biggest adventure “I sttor ory to address the world’s biggest issues – in story thhis sense the film is an open letter to a generation this innhe inheriting a world vastly different to the one I and my ffriends grew up in. my “We cannot see where we are going unless we see where we’ve been, and only original footage can

give us that experience.” The film is critically acclaimed and has won of a string of international awards including Most Popular Film at the New Zealand Film Festival, Best of BANFF in Canada and The Ambassador of Green Award at XDance USA. Last Paradise will be screened at Surf World Museum, Beach Road Torquay on Friday May 16 and Saturday May 17 at 7pm. The screening will be followed by question and answer sessions with physicist-come-filmmaker, Clive Neeson. To view the trailer and book tickets, visit lastparadisefilm.com.

Happy days for Bellarine book launch BY TIFFANY PILCHER OCEAN Grove author Heather Gallagher has teamed up with Barwon Heads illustrator Liz McGrath for her second children’s book, Happy Pants. With an important message about post-natal depression (PND), which affects on in seven Australian mothers, and beautiful imagery, Happy Pants is not just another picture book. The story is about a little boy who adores his Mummy, but when she comes home

with his baby brother, she seems to have become a different person. The boy feels betrayed and confused, and sets about trying to make Mummy better. Ms Gallagher suffered PND following the births of her daughters, now aged 9 and 12. The depression became a catalyst for her to act and she founded Parents Overcoming Depression with Support (PODS), and went on to become a children’s writer. “With Happy Pants I wanted to let kids know that

while they can’t make Mummy better, things will improve with time and love,” she said. “There will come a day when Mum can put on her happy pants again!” Specialising in projects that deliver health and community messages to parents and children, Ms McGrath was the perfect collaborator for Happy Pants. Barwon Heads mum and Corangamite MP Sarah Henderson attended the book’s recent launch at Ocean Grove’s Boorai Centre.

“It is wonderful to see a local woman brave enough to share her experiences for the benefit of others,” she said. “Happy Pants is not only a beautiful story but pays tribute to the many mothers who overcome postnatal depression.” Ms Gallagher and Ms McGrath will be appearing at bookgrove, 1/73 The Terrace, Ocean Grove on Wednesday May 21 to launch Happy Pants. Bookings are essential, to book, call 5255 5973 or email stacey@bookgrove.com.au.

Hit after hit at Carrigg’s next gig BY TIFFANY PILCHER ONE OF THE Bellarine’s favourite musicians will recreate the biggest hits from the 60s to today at his show at the Ocean Grove Bowling Club on Saturday night. James Carrgg grew up in Ocean Grove and has been performing professionally for eight years. He’s known for performing a wide range of covers from Johnny Cash and the Beach Boys, to Vance Joy, Jack Johnson, Paul Kelly, Crowded House, INXS and The Killers. “I like to think that I can perform at a 21st birthday one night and a 50th the next,” he said. “I don’t stick to one genre at all; a good song is a good song!”

With a full playlist of everyone’s favourite songs, combined with his strong ability on the acoustic guitar, smooth vocals and an ability to play to his audience, Carrigg’s shows are always hits. “The absolute best part of my job is the energy of having a whole room of people dancing and having ball. “I want my audiences to come to my gigs, lose their inhibitions and dance like dorks! “I want my audiences to sing along to the songs they grew up with and the songs they love now.” James Carrigg will perform at the Ocean Grove Bowling Club’s Members Lounge Bistro, 18 The Terrace, on Saturday May 17 from 7.30pm. Bookings are recommended, to book, call 5255 1540.

Winter warming reds IF YOU’RE not heading north like some lucky souls this winter then I guess you’re going to have to buckle yourself in for the coming winter months. Yes, that means the scarves and woolly coats will have to be dusted off and at the end of a grey old wet and rainy day, it’s certainly nice to walk into a warm home, with dinner on the table and a nice bottle of red tucked under the arm. With the weather as such, our attention starts to turn to the bigger, bolder styles of red – Shiraz, Cabernet and the like, the kind of styles that match the season. Here are three new ripping red wines that won’t break the budget, that serve up some terrific drinking pleasure for mid-week wintry nights. Now, as for me, I’m off to check out some holiday deals up north.

Bellarine performer James Carrigg will be playing everyone’s favourite songs at the Ocean Grove Bowling Club on Saturday night.

Amherst Pyrenees “Daisy Hill” Shiraz Cabernet 2012 ($16) I happen to be reading a great book about our Gold Rush history at the moment and I came across a mention of where gold was first “officially” discovered in Victoria, that being up in the Pyrenees region, more specifically on Daisy Hill, which reminded me of a wine I had recently come across from that very area. The Amherst “Daisy Hill” vineyard is planted over the old goldfield but these days, there’s a different gold to be found in the rich Pyrenees soils with the reds from up there tending to show a fantastically distinct dark/plummy fruit profile, with grippy, edgey tannins and a lick of pepper ‘n spice that make for a ripping combination with those sort of wintry meat driven comfort meals we start to crave as the weather turns grey and cold. Of course, I rang home immediately and pleaded for a meat pie for dinner and patiently counted down the afternoon hours. Of course, it was a hit

Woods Crampton Barossa Shiraz 2013 ($18) Super value! Whoa, delicious right from the word go. Label designer Aaron Woods and marketer Nicholas Crampton have created a very stylish, modern take on Barossa Shiraz here that’s very fruit driven and fresh in a drink me now kind of way. There’s exotic spice and black/blood plum fruits on display, but it’s the overall supple, slippery textural feel on the palate that ultimately takes the points. I love the premise behind this label – cool fermentation, cold soaked for five days at eight degrees in small open top fermenters, hand plunged and then matured in small and large oak barrels – a mix of new (30 per cent) and old for nine months, then bottled without fining and minimal filtration and sulphur. To the uninitiated, this probably sounds like a lot of old winemakers technical guff but all this does is emphasise and amplify that these wines sourced from some old low yielding, dry grown Barossa vines are aiming to achieve just the right balance between elegance, expression and minimal intervention, a mile away stylistically from the over ripened heroes of the Barossa of yore, and all at a more than affordable price. They’ve done a great job with this one.

Bleeding Heart McLaren Vale/ Riverland Shiraz 2012 ($12 or 2 for $20) Sourced from the same stable that brings us the astonishing value from overseas labels like the Tezona and Elefante Spanish wines, the Madame Coco NV Brut and Parnasse wines from France, plus the aforementioned Woods Crompton Shiraz, this wine is obviously stunning value with equally eye catching packaging to boot. At this price point, it’s all about the upfront, juicy, lip smacking dark red fruit rich flavours leading the charge, not overly complex granted but surprisingly more so than you’d expect. It certainly delivers what we all want – great flavour and value with a capital V!

experience in the music industry. He completed an advanced diploma of music performance (jazz) in 2009 and comes equipped with years of collaborative and performance experience with local and Melbourne musicians. “I love teaching all different kinds of people and sharing the gift of music,” he said. “My students don’t just learn how to play guitar, but also how to read and understand the language of music, which is such a valuable ability to have.” Mr Hay has a unique style of teaching that allows each student to develop their own style, at their own pace. “I tailor my lessons to each student, some people learn faster and some prefer to go slower and some are completely different all together. “I don’t teach according to one restrictive method so every student gets the lesson that helps them learn in the way that is most suited to them.” Lessons are $45 for one hour or $30 for 40 minutes and are available to people of all ages and levels of experience in electric and acoustic guitar. For more information or a free introductory guitar lesson, email contact@wavesguitar.com.au, phone 0428 846 650, or visit the Chris’s website at wavesguitar.com.au.

Curtain rises on Torquay dancer’s career BY TIFFANY PILCHER A YOUNG Torquay dancer is about to make the leap to the professional stage when he stars in the Vertical Shadows Dance Company’s new contemporary show this month. Joshua Hunt, 11, attends Bellbrae Primary School and has been studying dance at Infinite Dance Studios in Belmont since the age of 6. He was awarded the role after auditioning two years ago and this Friday the curtain will rise on his first performance of The White Prince alongside former principal dancer of The Australian Ballet Damien Welch and former senior artist of The Australian Ballet Marc Cassidy. His mother, Regina Hunt said this will be Joshua’s first professional role and he is thrilled, having loved dancing since he first stepped into a ballet slipper. “He recently attended the ‘Boys Day’ at The Australian Ballet in Melbourne and loved his experience there, watching the best male ballet dancers from the Australian Ballet and being taught by them. “He has been passionate about dancing for more than half of his life! “He started learning everything from jazz and tap to hip hop, ballet, contemporary and acrobatics, and quickly developed into a serious dancer.”

Vertical Shadows artistic director Stephen Agisilaou said Joshua had an amazing understanding of movement for someone his age. “Most young dancers are used to doing ‘step touch’ and only worrying about where their hands and feet are. “Although he had never done anything like what we gave him, his ability to allow his body to move was wonderful, and not just that but he also wasn't afraid to perform. “Performing wasn't an afterthought f or him, it was a instinctual thing that can’t be taught.” Mr Agisilaou said he continues to delve deeper into his complex character as rehearsals progress. “Josh is so switched on and any notes and character progression we give to him he then applies right away. “This is not an easy show nor is the music, the music is not in counts of eight or obvious phrases and he has such an ear for timing.” The White Prince will be showing at The Meat Market, 5 Blackwood Street, North Melbourne from May 16 to 24. For tickets and more information, visit verticalshadows.com.

Inspect GPAC’s hilarious new show

BY TIFFANY PILCHER

A CHAOTIC comedy of errors is coming to Geelong, with The Government Inspector opening at GPAC on May 22. Hot on the heels of sell-out, critically acclaimed seasons in Melbourne and Sydney, the play is directed by Simon Stone, who also directed the recent hit production of Death of a Salesman starring Colin Friels. Based loosely on the Nikolai Gogol play of the same name, in this new amalgam, just weeks out from opening night, an ensemble of actors is presented with the script for a play they were never supposed to perform. To save the day, a star director is shipped in from St Petersburg, but is he really who he seems?

In a hilarious madcap mash-up that deconstructs Gogol’s original, The Government Inspector will have you questioning where reality ends and theatricality begins. Mr Stone said he was thrilled to finally be directing the play and with a cast of such high calibre. “I’ve been looking for the opportunity to direct The Government Inspector for a long time, so I’m incredibly excited that we now are able to take this show on with such a talented group of individuals attached,” Stone said. The Government Inspector will be in The Playhouse at GPAC from May 22 to 24. Tickets range from $25 to $69 each and flexible season packages are also still available. Book tickets at the GPAC box office or by calling 5225 1200, or go online to gpac.org.au.

The show will go on for Celtic Thunder BY TIFFANY PILCHER IRISH supergroup Celtic Thunder will honour the memory of original principal singer George Donaldson at their Geelong show after his sudden passing in March.

The group has dedicated their upcoming Mythology tour to Donaldson, who suffered a massive heart attack at 46 at his home in Glasgow. At the time, he was preparing to join the tour and in recognition of his dedication to the show, the remaining members plus former member Emmet Cahill will perform the Australian dates. “After the shock of George’s sudden passing, we all sat down talked it over, we felt he would have wanted us to go out there and put on a great show,” Celtic Thunder soloist Neil Byrne said. “George was such a large part of the Celtic Thunder family and his absence has felt strange for all of us. “We have a few surprises planned on set list choices that are specific to songs that George used to sing and mean as much to us as to our fans. “Basically it will be a mutual celebration of some of George’s favourite tunes to rekindle some of the great memories we all have of the big man.” Byrne said the group is now looking forward to presenting their most spectacular show yet. “There are so many colours in this show, and after being together for so long, a real sense of camaraderie between us now. “We’re so excited to be back in Australia and Mythology the album was so well received here so we made sure we put together the best show possible.” Celtic Thunder will perform at Geelong Arena on June 6, for tickets and more information, Celtic Thunder are dedicating their Geelong show to principal singer George Donaldson (inset), who died suddenly of a heart attack earlier this year. visit celticthunder.ie.

SEEMS like it was only yesterday it was the New Year? There were the routine articles in the newspapers whereby the fashion forecasters – the futurists – outlined what would be “new and hot” for the coming year. Naturally I had read with interest that the “hot, new” food ingredient is the pomegranate. Apparently we should all watch out for this item in menus, new recipes etc. Now, according to my seasonal diary, the pomegranate should be available to us in March – the beginning of autumn – and so I planned to write about it as that time approached. But as with all things these days, it seems we are constantly programmed into fast-forward mode, because there they were, proud and very beautiful on the shelves at the greengrocer’s pomegranates way back in late January! We increasingly seem to have “seasonal” produce available to us almost all year round. Where are the “calendar police” who could keep at bay the bunnies that pop up in shops in early January, heralding Easter fare? Oh, and don’t get me started on the premature arrival each year of hot-cross buns? Still, pomegranates always catch my eye no matter when they appear, because they are such a beautiful thing to behold – even better when you cut them open to display the exotic and jewel like centres. Like a precious cocoon, the inner womb-like

centre of this fruit carefully cradles the small seeds which are glistening, bright red sacs of juice. The pomegranate is probably a native of Persia originally – hence we most often see it used in the cuisines of the middle-east. In many cultures pomegranates are considered a symbol of fertility and abundance – no doubt due to the prolific number of ruby red seeds. The notion of abundance fits in with the bountiful harvesting we associate with late autumn. In Greek legend, the pomegranate is forever linked to the change of seasons – Persephone, daughter of Demeter, the goddess of agriculture, was condemned to spend half the year in the underworld because she ate six seeds of the fruit. Pomegranates are now grown in many tropical and sub-tropical areas. They are the size of a small orange, with a thin hard rind or skin. The juice is used as a flavoring addition to drinks – grenadine – but it is also used in ice-creams and confectionery. In the West Indies, it is used widely in cooking and in preserves. The pomegranate is among the most ancient of fruits and can be eaten raw. The refreshingly tartsweet juice can be squeezed into both savoury and sweet dishes. A scattering of seeds around a dish of, say, sumac dusted and barbecued backstrap of lamb makes a very attractive and tasty garnish. More often pomegranates have simply graced our table as a

GETTING THE POMEGRANATE TART-SWEET decoration or centre-piece – they are so often the worthy and sensual subject of a still-life painting, the rich colouring being a source of inspiration for many an artist. I think they look great just broken up into chunks and piled high on a platter with some small mandarins and grapes – a fabulous edible centerpiece for the table! When selecting fruit, choose unblemished ones with a smooth golden-red skin which feel heavy for their size. They can be stored at room temperature for a couple of weeks before they dry out. For many cooks the challenge of getting the seeds out is often a deterrent, somewhat like tackling an artichoke in that these tasks fall into the “too much trouble” category. However, with a really sharp knife, pierce the leathery skin and cut the fruit in half. Use a teaspoon to loosen the seeds which are lodged in a creamy membrane. Pomegranate molasses add a tart-sweetness when used instead of balsamic vinegar. I have referred to well-known chef Greg Malouf, whose forte is Middle Eastern and Moroccan food, for this recipe for a tomato-pomegranate dressing which Greg spooned over freshly shucked oysters. The dressing works equally as well with a cooked vegetable salad of chunky sweet potato, zucchini and eggplant, or over salad leaves, or it could be drizzled over barbecued fish or chicken.

Pomegranate Dressing INGREDIENTS 1 teaspoon pomegranate molasses 4 shallots 1 clove garlic Juice of 1 lemon 2 very ripe tomatoes 180ml EVOO Salt and pepper

METHOD Finely chop the shallots and garlic. Cut tomatoes in half and discard the seeds, then finely dice the tomatoes. Combine the pomegranate molasses, shallots, garlic, lemon juice and tomatoes together with the extra-virgin olive oil, and a little salt and pepper - whisk together in a bowl. This will be sufficient dressing for 24 oysters. This would be a great entrée or appetiser for a dinner party, or if you’re entertaining friends, one large platter, piled with ice and the oysters makes an impressive starter for informal dining. If using this as a dressing over a salad, you could garnish the dish with the delightful pomegranate seeds.

REMEMBER when the only way to record music was to sit and wait for your favourite song on the radio, have a tape loaded into your trusty tape recorder and get ready to press “play” and “record” at the same time? Now it’s as easy as clicking on a download at the Apple Store, listening for free on Spotify or downloading the Pandora app to listen to and rate songs. iTunes is everyone’s favourite for downloading, playing and storing their music. Now we have access to iTunes Radio, which is free (add supported) and has more than 100 radio stations that play music based upon whichever genre your into. It has the ability to learn over time and tailor music to your personal taste. Spotify is a music streaming service that is

free to listen to on your mobile devices. Spotify lets you choose the artists that you like but not the actual songs. It will play these in shuffle mode or even play your own playlists but there are certain guidelines to follow. Consult their website for specifics. More like a personalised radio station, Pandora allows you to make a playlist with a few songs you like and then Pandora will play similar songs chosen from its million plus user base. Pandora will ask you to rate them with thumbs up or thumbs down and build your station customised to your personal taste. You can create up to 100 different stations, just like a radio station on steroids. Google Play has the ability to stream your own song collection so you can listen to your own music from different sources. Great if you have been slowly building your collection over the years. Happy listening!

Foundation runs on marathon BY JAMES TAYLOR ABOUT 6,000 runners and 15,000 supporters and spectators will be supporting the work of the Apollo Bay & District Health Foundation when they take part in the Great Ocean Road Marathon this weekend. The Apollo Bay & District Health Foundation is the preferred charity for the run between Lorne and Apollo Bay, and Dr Mani Kutti from the Apollo Bay

General Practice said the foundation’s work meant a lot to the community and the thousands of people who used the practice every year. Dr Mani said that in 2011, the foundation funded the purchase of a digital X-ray machine for Otway Health & Community Services, and also supported the acquisition of radiology tele-link equipment last year to enable X-rays to be sent electronically to Geelong for immediate review and reporting by surgeons.

He said the digital equipment had been invaluable to residents and visitors to the Apollo Bay area by enabling local medical staff to obtain specialist opinions on X-rays within moments. Last year, the foundation also funded the purchase of an Istat blood testing machine, making it possible for patients’ blood to be tested on site and the results available in 10 minutes - before this machine was installed, it was often necessary for patients to travel to Geelong for blood tests.

The two pieces of new equipment mean that Apollo Bay now has an Urgent Care Centre where patients are bulk billed for emergencies and which is reliably open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. “It saves lives,” Dr Mani said. It has also eased some of the burden on both families of patients and local ambulance staff because the need to travel to Geelong for blood tests, X-rays and specialist review has been substantially reduced.

In their newly renovated health care centre, you will find a professional, yet friendly environment with a wide variety of health services all focusing on you living the extraordinary life you desire. Director of The Health Creation Centre and osteopath, Erin Coffey, said while the centre catered for the whole family, it was working to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to young and new mums. Dr Coffey said her team included Dr Natasha Hagger, an osteopath with a keen interest in pre/post natal treatments and babies.

Dr Amelia Hagger is a Chinese medicine doctor and massage therapist who can assist in fertility, while exercise physiologist Jess Griffin can help with an exercise program to restore muscle tone and overall fitness. Bowen therapist Kerrie Smith offers a gentle, relaxing technique that can be used to assist with common pregnancy related muscular aches and pains, while Lisa Taylor, who starts in June, is a family relationships specialist and consultant. Ms Smith focuses on assisting families to develop strong, loving relationships because the quality of our intimate family relationships determines the quality of our lives. The clinic has also acquired Reformer Pilates

Former Geelong matron honoured on International Nurses and Midwives Day BY REBECCA LAUNER BARWON Health staff and volunteers united on Monday to formally acknowledge the contribution nurses and midwives make all over the world. Barwon Health hosted several events in recognition of International Nurses and Midwives Day, including the inaugural Matron Taylor Memorial Lecture. The lecture is dedicated to Mrs Marjory Alice Hamlet Walkowski OAM, commonly known as Matron Taylor, who was Director of Nursing at The Geelong Hospital from 1956 to 1981. The lecture will be highlighted by the unveiling of a sculpture created by Leonie Amerena and dedicated to the memory of Matron Taylor. Director of nursing, midwifery and aged care at barwon health Dr Lucy Cuddihy said the sculpture was a fitting tribute to the legacy Matron Taylor left for the nursing and midwifery community in the region. “Matron Taylor was loved and respected by the nursing profession and was a remarkable humanitarian,” Dr Cuddihy said. “She was renowned for her visionary

leadership, passion for nursing education and her tireless work for the Geelong community. “Barwon Health is privileged to unveil this sculpture in her honour.”

Bowl With It rolls on in Anglesea BY JAMES TAYLOR ACTIVE April is over, but a program trialled by Anglesea Bowling Club during the month officially started yesterday afternoon. Bowl With It sessions were held throughout April at the club and were well received by everyone who participated. The new program is now available to residents and visitors to the Anglesea and Surf Coast communities. The first schools to participate will be the Anglesea and Aireys Inlet primary schools. Bowl With It is suitable for all ages and abilities, and involves club and community group champions leading bowls activities, resulting in positive health outcomes and community connectedness by getting more people more active through sport and mentoring. Initially, the program will involve local primary students and young people, but will be extended to include groups from all sectors of the community, including camp visitors. Anglesea Bowling Club president Kaye Kendall said the club was proud of its community participation initiatives such as Bowl With It, which had the potential to involve thousands of people each year in healthy sporting activities held at the club. YMCA Anglesea Recreation Camp Manager Vicki Chrzanowski said the program provided children, youth and the young at heart with sporting activities that not only improved health but built stronger communities. It is estimated more than 90,000 people across the state answered the call in Active April to be active for at least 30 minutes a day. Minister for Sport and Recreation Damien Drum congratulated Victorians for their record efforts. “Active April has been a terrific opportunity for all Victorians to reap the benefits of a more

energetic lifestyle and it was fantastic to see so many individuals, teams, communities and schools involved in this year’s revamped challenge. “Active April is about forging long-term healthy habits and I encourage all our participants to keep

their newfound lifestyle well beyond the month of April. “As part of the Coalition government’s commitment to get more people, more active more often, this year Active April saw people of all ages

and abilities walk, run, swim and cycle their way to a healthier lifestyle, tracking their progress on a dedicated website and app.” Participants in the 2014 Premier’s Active April recorded 267,396 hours of activity.

Drumstrong to roll bowel cancer BY TIFFANY PILCHER INTERNATIONAL synchronised drumming event, Drumstrong is coming to Lorne on Sunday and is set to make a whole lot of noise about bowel cancer. Drumstrong first began in 2007 in North Carolina by the Swimmer family after their son overcame bone cancer and they wanted to inform people about different cancers while having fun and connecting through music. Now, Drumstrong is held in more than 70 cities in 25 countries. The Lorne event will be a non-stop drumming circle for four hours on Sunday and will raise money and awareness for bowel cancer through donations and a silent auction with prizes from local businesses. There is one main drum that must continue nonstop throughout the event but other drums and percussion instruments are welcome and people can

come and go from the circle as they please. All the Drumstrong events around the world will be connected via webcam. “We have a lot of organisations and a few drum circles on board so I hope we get a lot of people along to have fun, make some funky music and put bowel cancer in the spotlight,” organiser Jon Overcash said. “I lost my mother-in-law to bowel cancer and a lot of the discussions my wife and I had were about how little exposure it gets, people don’t know a lot about it and we want to change that.” Drumstrong will be held on Sunday May 18 at the Mantra Resort, Lorne in Conference Room 1 from 10am to 2pm. Anyone interested in drumming, donating or participating in any way can contact Jon Overcash by calling 0421 924 321 or emailing jrovercash@hotmail.com. For more information on Drumstrong, A Drumstrong drum circle in full flight. The international cancer awareness event is coming to Lorne for the visit drumstrong.org. first time on Sunday.

Getting to the bottom of the bread basket: the gluten debate

Bec Winkler is a qualified naturopath with 10 years experience. She works at the Chiropractic Centre, Jan Juc.

GLUTEN is a protein found in many grains such as wheat, oats, rye, barley and spelt. Contrary to what some people think, rice does not contain gluten. The debate that has been bubbling among medical and health professionals in the last few years has been: “is gluten bad for us?” While there is no black and white answer, we cannot argue with the sharp rise in indviduals displaying gluten sensitivity/ intolerance. This can include digestive symptoms such as stomach cramps and diarrhoea, to more systemic symptoms such as eczema and skin irritation, headaches, fatigue and upper respiratory tract symptoms

such as runny nose and hay fever. Firstly, it is important that I point out that there is a huge difference between individuals who have diagnosed coeliac disease, and those with gluten intolerance. Coeliac disease is an overt allergy to gluten that an individual is born with, whereas gluten intolerance is a gradual process whereby our immune response begins to react to gluten as a result of damage to the intestinal tract. Our digestive tract is lined with a protective barrier to stop food particles, microbes and infections from crossing over into our blood stream and causing our

immune system to react. In genetically susceptible people, gluten can penetrate this protective barrier by causing the release of zonulin, a protein that causes damage to this barrier causing “leaky gut”. When your gut is leaky, things that should not normally be found in blood such as food particles, toxins, and microbes, gain entry into the bloodstream. Your immune system encounters these invaders, perceiving them to be foreign, thus mounting an inflammatory, immune response, leading to the myriad of symptoms mentioned above.

While all of this is sounding like doom and gloom for gluten, I’m not suggesting we all need to steer clear of the bread basket. It is clear from extensive research that gluten intolerance is linked to a genetic predisposition, but the question then becomes, why is it on such a steep incline? Other theories also implicate the hygiene hypothesis (aka, our obsession with antibacterials and fear of germs), environmental pollutants and toxins and our poor western diet high in process, refined “food”. Regardless of the causation, it is here, it is real, and it is on the rise.

It’s a great week to set goals with the big picture in mind. Small dramas and minor irritations fade into the background, as you look to the future with excitement and enthusiasm. The Jupiter/Saturn trine boosts productivity and helps you socialise and circulate with an influential new crowd. If you want to zoom ahead at work, you’ll have to network your socks off!

Do you feel as if you’ve been treading water … or even going backwards? Has a partnership felt as if it’s more trouble than it’s worth? Thank goodness mighty Mars your ruling planet moves forwards on Tuesday, so you’ll start to feel much more positive and proactive about life, love and relationships. It’s time for fiery Rams to finally shift into top gear!

Has a family relationship been going down a rocky road? The stars encourage healing, as you build bridges and start communicating again. You’ll have to be a proactive Crab and make the first move though. The winds of change are definitely sweeping through your life but don’t waste time worrying about it. As birthday great Bob Dylan says “There is nothing so stable as change”.

Many Librans have been feeling lazy and lacklustre, as Mars has retrograded through your sign since early March. Thankfully the warrior planet finally moves forwards on Tuesday and you’ll start to feel more motivated, as your mojo returns in spades! Be inspired by birthday great Ralph Waldo Emerson, who wisely declared “An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory”.

Bulls – don’t take good health for granted. Be proactive about making healthy lifestyle choices, and prioritise time for regular exercise and nutritious meals. As birthday great Ralph Waldo Emerson reminds us “The first wealth is health”. Is a relationship going through a bumpy patch? Sunday’s Jupiter/ Saturn trine urges you to work on keeping the lines of communication open.

Calling all Lions! Avoid being a right-royal bossy-boots this week. Cool compromise and clear, considered communication will get you a lot further than temper-tantrums and prima donna behavior. On the weekend, Saturn stabilises a domestic situation and helps you find a solution to a problem; or Jupiter brings family members together to enjoy a special celebration.

Smart Scorpios know that sustainable success doesn’t just drop out of the sky. So this week’s stars are super for utilising every opportunity that comes your way, as you take an adventurous idea and make it happen through hard work and awesome organisation. Singles - you have a better chance of finding your soul mate if you are proactive, creative and cast your net wide.

Aquarians are feeling mighty adventurous, as Mars moves forwards in your travel zone and stirs your gypsy gene and wanton wanderlust! So your motto for the moment is from birthday great Ralph Waldo Emerson “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”. A chat with a respected teacher or mentor puts a current problem in perspective.

Gung-ho Gemini – avoid the temptation to skim over important details. You’re keen to zoom ahead but remember there’s a fine line between making smart snap decisions and messy mistakes. The stars are super for artistic endeavours and creative thinking, but nervous energy is also high. So, if you don’t pace yourself, then you’ll be exhausted by the end of the week.

You’re at your versatile Virgo best, as the sun shimmies through in your career zone until June 21. Professional projects are favored as you move ahead with confidence, creativity and plenty of chutzpah. Mighty Mars moves forwards in your money zone, but don’t spoil your future prospects by being rash with cash. Think – carefully – before you make expensive purchases.

Are you viewing a family member through rose-coloured glasses? Perhaps it’s time to be more realistic about what’s really going on? The wonderful weekend Jupiter/Saturn trine is a time when good luck meets thorough preparation, as you capitalise on the lucky opportunities that come your way. Energy levels are high, so put your Sagittarian enthusiasm to practical use.

Are you living in a Piscean fantasy world? Saturn sends a reality check this week – especially involving your future goals. So take your head out of the clouds and get organised. The moon and Neptune give you a creativity boost on Thursday and Friday but don’t waste precious time on the weekend. With the moon in dynamic Aries, stop procrastinating and start creating.

Barwon Heads wins Battle of the Bridge BY JAMES TAYLOR BARWON Heads has won the Battle of the Bridge, running out seven-goal winners against historical rivals Ocean Grove in round 6 of the BFL. The Grubbers led by three points at quarter time at Howard Harmer Oval but the Seagulls had the better of the game after that, Chris Martin and Mitchell Wight kicking 10 goals between them. Kelly Williams kicked four goals for Ocean Grove. Drysdale mounted a charge in the last quarter at home against Geelong Amateur, kicking five goals to one but ultimately fell 13 points short. Paul Davis kicked four goals for the Hawks, who hold onto third spot on the ladder. Ian Baker bagged five goals for Torquay as the

Tigers defeated Anglesea by 26 points at Spring Creek Reserve. Torquay are one of three sides at 4-2 and sit fourth on percentage. Reigning premiers Queenscliff have recorded their second win of the season after beating Portarlington but still have a lot of work to do to make their way up the ladder. Daniel Degois bagged five for the Coutas. Modewarre put on an offensive and defensive masterclass against Newcomb, kicking 35 goals while restricting Newcomb to just two points. Only seven Warriors players did not kick at least one goal – Joshua Finch slotted six, while Jesse Douglas and Matthew Farrelly kicked four each. For full results and fixtures for all grades in the Bellarine Football League, head to aflbarwon. com.au.

TORQUAY have again shown why they’re the reigning premiers with a seven-goal win over Anglesea. They sit firmly in second place having lost only to ladder leaders Geelong Amateur – we know everyone is looking forward to that rematch. Shooter Amy Vogels was dominant yet again scoring more than half of Torquay’s goals, while mid-courter Olivia Hobbs gave a best-on-court performance. Defender Ginger Brown was also at her best in a 45-38 win. Ocean Grove has claimed victory in the Battle of the Bridge, eclipsing Barwon Heads 45-31. The Grubbers were bolstered by their defensive unit of Candice Parker and Kelsey Ollis, who were outstanding in the circle and picked up three votes and two votes respectively. Ocean Grove sit in fifth position on the ladder and are breathing down Anglesea’s neck – they are behind the Roos on percentage only. An experienced Portarlington side beat Queenscliff convincingly and now sit third on the

The Anglesea Bowling Club are keen for their two synthetic greens to be fully used during the off season/winter period. Visitors are most welcome to join us as follows:

COPPARDS ROAD

THE Anglesea Bowling Club recently held its 55th annual general meeting. The board of directors were duly elected as follows: Kaye Kendall (president), Gerard Morrison (vice-president), Ken Bunning (secretary), Carmen Koster (treasurer) plus five directors – Graeme Boardman, Fran Price, Bob Evans, Estie Wines and Nathan Chrzanowski. The big day started off with an enthusiastic competition between teams of three and four competitors. The changeable breeze made for a tricky task that required our usual high level of skills to be employed. After two hard-fought games, the winners were John Koster, June Christie and Len Cockerill. Runners-up were Ken McCasker, Geoff Kendall, Dorothy Millard and Bob Berrill. The day concluded with a very enjoyable dinner served to us by the YMCA in our clubrooms, and the presentation of awards to the winners and runners-up for the championship events held during the 2013-2014 season. President Kaye thanked everyone for their support during the season. She and the board are looking forward to yet another challenging year – both on and off the green.

ladder, having edged out Anglesea after the Roos’ second loss in a row. Demons goaler Candice Bull put on a show scoring 37 of 51 goals, almost doubling the Coutas’ final score of 20. Port will meet Ocean Grove next week in what is sure to be an epic clash, as the Grubbers aim for a top four spot. Drysdale took on Geelong Amateur at home and the young side put up a gallant fight, with the Ammos unable to really shake the Hawks until the last quarter, eventually doubling their score. Ammos defender Keisha Guilmartin took home three votes with plenty of intercepts in a side missing three key players, while goaler Jenni Gardner stood tall, putting away 27 of 49 goals. Modewarre handed Newcomb a savage loss, punishing the Power 103-14. Goalers Sarah Fisher and Jackie Riddle both shot accurately with 56 and 47 goals respectively. After a not-sogreat start to the season, the Warriors – who were last year’s runners-up – sit in sixth position and will be looking to turn things around. Newcomb meet top of the table Geelong Amateur this week.

MY BIG CATCH WITH GARRY KERR

FISHING REPORT ANGLESEA Salmon are still being caught off the beaches Gummy and sevengill sharks have been caught off shore Rock fishing continues producing some salmon and the odd pinkie.

APOLLO BAY Salmon being caught off the beach Still reports of couta being caught at the mouth of the marina King George whiting and flathead still in the harbour area Johanna still producing gummies and salmon.

Thursday 15 May 2014

I RECENTLY received the following press release from Barwon Water: “Barwon Water has reminded recreational anglers to stay within the designated fishing zone at Wurdee Boluc Reservoir. “Barwon Water general manager of infrastructure services Paul Northey said it was important to remember the reservoir’s primary purpose was as a drinking water supply. “‘While we are happy to allow access for fishing from the bank, we do ask anglers to respect the facility by staying in the designated area and ensuring they take their rubbish home or use the bins provided,’ Mr Northey said. “‘New signs clearly outlining the area approved for fishing have been erected and a map provided on Barwon Water’s website.’” Upon receiving this release, I contacted Barwon

BARWON HEADS Salmon off the beaches Reports continue of some nice trevally being caught up to a few kilos in the river Some small undersize mulloway have also been taken Pinkies and gummies still being caught offshore.

TORQUAY Still some whiting in close Salmon off the beaches Some gummy shark have been caught offshore Bream are still being caught in Spring Creek. Remember Torquay Tackle and Sports. For all the best available advice in Torquay on tackle and bait, drop in and see Gareth and Jonathan. They will do their best to ensure you get the most up-to-date information available, phone 5264 8207.

QUEENSCLIFF St Leonards still has some squid, whiting and flathead being taken

Fishing is only allowed from certain areas in Wurdee Boluc Reservoir.

Water who were happy to facilitate a visit to Wurdee Boluc to explain the areas and why signs are placed where they are. Upon arriving at the main picnic area and car parking site, the first thing I looked for where the new signs outlining the areas that fishers were allowed to fish in. Unfortunately, none were present and the only thing that struck me was the beer cartons full of empties stuffed in the bin near the picnic tables, as well as the tyre skid marks that were quite visible in the car park itself. Upon meeting my guide, I asked him why there were no signs present in the main park advising fishers as to where they can fish, and why the rubbish and tyre marks were present. He advised that signs had been put up all around the reservoir and in the car park, but those signs had been ripped down and removed, and the rubbish and tyre marks were created by groups using the area for reasons other than fishing. He explained the main concern for the restrictions were, obviously, that the Wurdee Boluc Reservoir is Barwon Water’s main treatment plant for drinking water in Geelong, Anglesea, Torquay and the Bellarine Peninsula. The reservoir itself has a 39,000 megalitre capacity to hold untreated water. The treatment plant itself is the key to the facility having a daily capability of treating 230 megalitres a day removing colour and turbidity before being disinfected and piped to customers. The guide pointed out that it was important that the region near the towers – which was outside the allowed area for fishing – was kept clear of rubbish at all times. It seems at least fishers are doing the right thing with regards to rubbish within the nominated area for fishing as there was little if any rubbish present. Upon asking why larger areas couldn’t be opened up for access to fishers, the guide explained it basically came down to being able to control the area in which fishers fished. Barwon Water also states that it was prohibited to fish from the rocks but access can be gained from the gravel ramps provided. Unfortunately, those ramps

have washed away. If these are Barwon Water’s requirements, I would respectfully suggest that they need to address this problem to enable fishers to comply with their requirements, and to address the problem by applying for available funding for formal access in sensitive areas (i.e. Devil Bend Reservoir) under the recreational fishing licence fund for infrastructure. From a recreational fishing viewpoint, it would be great to have more access and better access. Maybe Barwon Water can consider this as long as the onus is put on fishers, and that fishers and Barwon Water can work together to maintain drinking water as well as what is one of the best inland fishing waters in our region.

Local success at Victorian Scholastic Surfing Title BY HARRY WILKS THE annual Victorian Scholastic Surfing Titles was held at Phillip Island on May 11. The standard this year has risen to new levels during a massive four days of competition at Woolamai Beach on Phillip Island. The premier individual divisions were faced with a large variety of conditions. Saturday saw very small one to two foot waves, where competitors were then later greeted with a building four to six foot swell. The under 19s saw amazing performances in both the boys and girls divisions. Cody Robinson from Jan Juc survived a late surge from Walter Hiatt (Phillip Island) in the under 19 boys final. Robinson has just gotten back in the country after representing Australia at the ISA World Junior Titles in Ecuador. In the 20-minute final, he scored a 6.67 and a 5.77 to push on and claim victory. Zoe Clarke (Jan Juc), who was the 2013 Australia

Junior Titles under 18 runner-up, proved to be way to strong for her opponents in the under 19 girls competition, scoring an amazing 8.83 on her way to victory. Isabelle Bond (Torquay) was in third place. 11-year-old Xavier Huxtable from Jan Juc continued his dominance of Victoria’s junior divisions, winning the under 13 boys final ahead of his nine-year-old brother Ethan. Xavier’s 16.83 two-wave total was too strong for the other competitors, with Ethan finishing on 13.4. In the Under 13s, Barwon Heads’ Ellie Harrison’s choice of excellent waves saw her score a total of 17.10 and a win in this division. Arabella Wilson (Jan Juc, 10.33) came in third. The under 16 divisions were also hard-fought battles, with Josh Cammarere (Torquay) winning the boys and Grace Day (Jan Juc) winning the girls. Thursday saw schools tag team surfing, with Geelong College winning the Independent Schools Team Titles.

MEANWHILE, both rounds of the Be the Influence Victorian Longboard Titles Presented by HIF are set to run this weekend at Point Impossible this weekend. The cream of Victorian longboarding will gather to battle it out for 12 state titles. Round one at Ocean Grove was postponed due to extreme weather warnings issued by the Bureau of Meteorology. As a result, both rounds of the series will be run over the weekend with round one starting on Saturday morning. Round two will be run on Sunday, where Victorian champions in all 12 divisions from Under 18s to Over 65s will be crowned. Great conditions are forecast for the weekend with a small- to medium-sized swell wrapping along the coast with offshore winds all weekend. Heat draws for round one can be found online at surfingvic.com. Round two heat draws will be produced after Grace Day from Jan Juc surfing her way to victory.

Janice Pekin and Ros Holland had a small win at Barwon Heads this week with one of the best nine hole scores in the Max Bell Cup and just missed out on an overall win.

Division 3 suffered a bigger loss against 13th Beach at Curlewis â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with your scribe being on the other side of one of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pekinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; score. Division 6 also lost 1/4 against St Leonards/Queenscliff at The Sands. Division 1 is near the top, Division 4 in the middle and Division 3 and 6 are holding up their ladders.

It was less than ideal conditions for the 9 hole medley, but you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know it by looking at Mark Klunderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s card as he turned in a solid score of 18 points. Runner-up was Graham Weise with 16 points. Colin Chinn set the pace early with a +1, and in the end it could not be matched as he won the medley. Second went to Craig Corker at square.
