JACK PLOT Works on Torquay Bowls Club to start next week

BY JAMES TAYLOR

THE deal is done on the plan to redevelop the Torquay Bowls Club, with construction to start next week. Geelong firm Lyons Construction and the Torquay Bowls Club (TBC) signed the contract for the $1.7 million project last week at the office of South Barwon MP Andrew Katos. Insite Architects has drawn up the final plans for the redevelopment, which includes separate amenities and kitchen areas to allow multiple functions to be held at once, meeting spaces, disabled access and facilities and a deck to provide outside dining

with views over the bowling rinks and Zeally Bay. TBC has contributed $200,000 towards the project and has almost finished moving out honour boards and other items ahead of the start of construction. Chairman Des Bruhn said he was delighted to have at last signed the contract after “two years of hard work”. “The origins of this go back about five years. We look forward to sharing this wonderful, new precinct with the wider community and enjoying the multipurpose facilities,” he said. “The club is making arrangements

to ensure the continuation of activities and pennant bowls during the construction period.” Lyons Construction managing director Gary Iacono said the redevelopment would be largely complete by Christmas, subject to weather, with everything finished by late January. “We’re delighted it’s a local contract, it’s good to get the local jobs.” Other projects completed by the company include the Torquay Police Station and the Bellarine Aquatic Centre. The state government has supported

the works with a $1.5 million grant, which is being overseen by The Esplanade site’s land manager, the Great Ocean Road Coastal Committee (GORCC). Mr Katos said the redevelopment would meet the needs of the rapidly growing club as well as the wider community. “The facilities will also provide space for community groups and a home for the Torquay RSL subbranch.” He acknowledged the project redevelopment team – which included the TBC, Regional Development Victoria and representatives from GORCC – for their input and support.

Call to pick up the pace on the pool BY JAMES TAYLOR LIBERAL candidate for Corangamite Sarah Henderson has urged the Surf Coast Shire to pick up the pace on Torquay’s proposed aquatic centre, saying progress has been far too slow. Ms Henderson says the pool should be a priority project for the council and planning funding should be included in the draft 2013-14 budget before it is finalised next week. The draft budget already includes a commitment to review a 2009 feasibility study into building the pool. In August last year, councillors resolved to reserve a parcel of land in the north east corner of the civic and community precinct for a future aquatic centre. Ms Henderson said families in Torquay and Jan Juc, such as those in the Surf Coast Aquatic Leisure Centre Action Group, were screaming out for action. “All of council needs to get behind an aquatic centre and designate it as a priority project. “Unless this project is driven by council, it simply won’t happen. While the previous council

allocated land for a new pool in North Torquay, there is no doubt the Torquay and broader Surf Coast communities want to see this project fast-tracked. “Since the completion of a 2009 feasibility study, progress has been far too slow. “That’s why a small amount of planning money needs to be allocated in next year’s council budget to help drive this project forward.” Mayor Libby Coker said the in-house review of the feasibility study was “thoughtful and prudent”. “This may be a vote winner but it won’t be a winner for our community if it is not managed correctly. We won’t be pushed into an approach that will leave a legacy of debt and ongoing running costs, but we will work to find the most efficient and cost effective way to deliver this facility.” Corangamite Federal MP Darren Cheeseman said he could play his part to secure funding but the council must drive the project, put in the applications and make a very significant contribution. The shire will hold a public meeting at chambers 6pm tonight to consider submissions to the draft budget.

No more fracking too risky, says Cheeseman BY JAMES TAYLOR CORANGAMITE Federal MP Darren Cheeseman has urged a further tightening of the ban on fracking in Victoria because of concerns a drill site near Anglesea may damage the water table for Geelong and the Surf Coast. Gas and oil company Lakes Oil Group has a petroleum exploration permit that covers all of Torquay and Anglesea and stretches north beyond Waurn Ponds, Moriac and Modewarre. It has identified a site for a deep petroleum/

delivered to your home or business

geothermal exploration well west of Anglesea. Fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, involves injecting high-pressure water into a well to break up the rock and release oil or gas to the surface. Following a public outcry against coal seam gas, the state government declared a moratorium on the practice in August, but Lakes Oil Group – which also has drill sites in Gippsland and near Point Campbell – has been lobbying for it to be lifted. Lakes Oil says it is not involved in coal seam methane and its activities had been caught up in the moratorium.

Mr Cheeseman said fracking was highly risky to the environment with real dangers to local water tables. “The Anglesea bore field is an important part of Geelong’s water supply. “This highly risky geological mining practice endangers Geelong’s water supply and may lead to significant reduction or contamination of the water table and potential for sink holes and land slumpage.” He called on the state government to legislate the moratorium and to not renew Lakes Oil’s exploration licence over the Great Otway National Park, or to

give it an extraction licence. In a letter to shareholders in May, Lakes Oil Group chairman Robert Annells said his company was not and did not intend to get involved with coal bed methane. “Lakes Oil does not intend to, and will not, frac any rock units that are aquifers. “Artificial stimulation has been in use in the petroleum production industry for many years and provided no offensive chemical additives are used in the process, and the frac is kept away from aquifers, no adverse effects are known.”

THE Apollo Bay community celebrated the official opening of their extended library last week, which boasts double the space of the original. Funded through a partnership between the state government, Colac Otway Council and Otway Health, Member for Polwarth Terry Mulder officially opened the new space. The new library offers increased book storage and reading areas to allow for a more flexible space, an area for children’s books and storytelling that will help foster the reading skills of Apollo Bay and district children, and a new multimedia and study area, which connects to the town’s neighbourhood house. Mayor Lyn Russell said a strong working relationship between the state government, Otway Health and the council had resulted in a vastlyimproved facility for Apollo Bay. “This project has not just resulted in a better library

facility but has enhanced an important community precinct in Apollo Bay,” Ms Russell said. Otway Health CEO Linda West said her organisation was delighted to assist in providing for the needs of the Apollo Bay community. “The new space is warm and inviting and a great addition to what is fast becoming the

heart of this community.” The library extension was worth $487,000 in total, and comprised $349,000 from the state government’s Living Libraries Infrastructure program, $100,000 from the council and $38,000 from Otway Health. Otway Health also provided the land for the extension.

Roads rolling out in civic precinct BY JAMES TAYLOR BANYUL Warri Fields and the future site of Surf Coast Secondary College will be more accessible with the completion of connecting roadworks in the community and civic precinct in Torquay. Merrijig Drive is being extended 500 metres to the east to join the northern extension of Fischer Street, and the new section will also feature dedicated bicycle lanes and a 2.5-metre wide pedestrian path for future early years and youth facilities in the area. The road, lighting and additional angled parking near the ovals are on schedule to be finished in midJuly. Fencing and shelters on the sporting fields in the precinct have already been completed. The works has been funded with a $2.3 million state government grant, and Member for Western Victoria Region David Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien toured the site with Surf Coast Shire mayor Libby Coker earlier this month. Cr Coker said the works would cater for increased

use of the facilities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; about 100,000 people visited the precinct in its first year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and future infrastructure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The precinct is already really well utilised, but with the development of Surf Coast Secondary College, future primary school in Torquay North and future early years facilities at Banyul Warri Fields; this safe walking and cycling route becomes even more important. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The works are great news for residents in the area, for people thinking of moving to the area, for clubs and groups that use the precinct and also importantly for the Surf Coastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future secondary students.â&#x20AC;? Mr Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said the works would also prepare the precinct for future development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the precinctâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stunning new municipal office already occupied, and a $24 million state-of-the-art secondary college on schedule to open nearby in 2014, this area will be at the heart of maintaining liveability and building prosperity as Torquay grows.â&#x20AC;?

Life saverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service years honoured BY JAMES TAYLOR

Mike Martin has been president of life saving organisations at local, state and national levels.

ANGLESEA Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) member Mike Martin has received plaudits for his decades of service to the life saving movement. Mr Martin, who has been involved in life saving since 1964, was made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Birthday Honours List. He joined Anglesea SLSC in 1979, where he was instrumental in the introduction of inter-club nipper carnivals in Victoria and the state championships. His dedication to the development of junior life savers is evident through his role on the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nippers panel and in holding the head coach position

for 10 years. Mr Martin went on to serve as president of Anglesea SLSC from 1995-1999 and became an honorary life member of the club in 1998, where he continues to be a patrolling member. He was elected president of Surf Life Saving Victoria (SLSV) in 2000 and was also awarded the Victorian Volunteer of the Year by SLSV that year. As president, he played a key role in the amalgamation of SLSV and the Victorian branch of the Royal Life Saving Society of Australia to become the peak life saving body now known as Life Saving Victoria (LSV). He was the first president of the new organisation in 2004 until he stood down in 2012.

He became a life member of LSV in 2007 and of SLSA in 2008. Mr Martin said life savers did what they did for the passion, not for awards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The honour is very humbling, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice for the organisation overall that life saving is recognised as a substantial part of the community.â&#x20AC;? LSV chief officer Nigel Taylor said Mr Martin had dedicated his life to life saving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mike demonstrates all of the characteristics of an inspirational leader and a champion life saver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is extremely passionate about the role life saving plays in keeping not only our beaches safe but the broader aspects of aquatic recreation and our shared mission to prevent aquatic-related death.â&#x20AC;?

Gonski boost to schools revealed BY JAMES TAYLOR SCHOOLS in the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula will receive up to 40 per cent more money through the Gonski reforms, according to data released by the federal government last week. The federal government is negotiating with the states to sign up to its school funding plan ahead of its June 30 deadline. South Australia agreed to the deal on Friday, with New South Wales and the ACT already on board. Earlier last week, the state government earlier announced almost 250 Victorian state schools would

be worse off under the Gonski reforms. Federal Schools Minister Peter Garrett then released his own list of data, which shows schools in the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula will gain millions of dollars of extra funding over the next five years under Gonski. The increases range from $231,000 for Queenscliff Primary School, taking its 2019 funding to $703,512, to $4.3 million for Torquay P-9 College, which lifts its 2019 funding to more than $14 million. Percentage-wise, funding will go up by between 19.4 per cent (Lorne-Aireys P-12 College) and 43.7

per cent (Point Lonsdale Primary School). Corangamite Federal MP Darren Cheeseman welcomed the release of the data. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now that local parents know about the significant increase to their school and can picture the changes that can be funded, I am sure the state government will do the right thing and sign up. Surf Coast schools will get an additional $17.5 million a year when compared to the existing funding model. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Labor has spent more than three years building the argument for funding reform and now we need to have this plan locally.â&#x20AC;?

He said the funds would be spent on additional teachers and resources for our schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The research shows that spending on more individual help, new teaching technologies and teacher training helps improve results and can help our kids get better jobs and a lifetime of higher income.â&#x20AC;? The state government has been highly critical of the Gonski negotiation process, with Education Minister Martin Dixon describing it as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;farceâ&#x20AC;? and accusing the federal government of â&#x20AC;&#x153;moving the goalpostsâ&#x20AC;?.

Sign and support road funding BY JAMES TAYLOR THE G21 Geelong Region Alliance is stepping up its efforts towards funding for the Great Ocean Road by calling for more signatures to support the cause. The OMGreatOceanRoad campaign, launched in January, is seeking $50 million in state and federal funding over five years for essential upgrades and maintenance of the road. As of yesterday, a petition in support of the funding had gathered 1,946 signatures, and G21 chief executive officer Elaine Carbines is hoping to drive the figure above 2,000 before a delegation visits Canberra this week. Geelong Otway Tourism executive director Roger Grant said the push for more signatures was part of an attempt to present a â&#x20AC;&#x153;clear and concise voice to Canberraâ&#x20AC;? about the issue. He said initial discussions with Federal Transport Minister Anthony Albanese about making the 80-year-old tourist attraction a Road of National Importance (RONI) had been unsuccessful, as the

Great Ocean Road did not easily fit into one funding category. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not particularly fussy which particular pot the funding comes out of.â&#x20AC;? He said the federally funded RONIs tended to be between capital cities such as Sydney and Melbourne, but the Great Ocean Road had been positioned as a national asset for its heritage and landscape values. The OMGreatOceanRoad campaign has been widely advertised on billboards and stickers since its launch, and Mr Grant said it had revealed a groundswell of support for the $50 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many people are very surprised itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not supported by the federal government; they thought that was the case.â&#x20AC;? He said he was heartened by Liberal candidate for Corangamite Sarah Hendersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in-principle backing of the campaign and would welcome the support of incumbent MP Darren Cheeseman. Head to g21.com.au/omgreatoceanroad to learn more about the OMGreatOceanRoad campaign or to sign the petition.

Find out about Amy’s Gran Fondo BY JAMES TAYLOR FOUR community information sessions will be held over the next two weeks for the popular Amy’s Gran Fondo cycling event. September 15 will mark the third running of Amy’s Grand Fondo, which last year drew nearly 4,000 elite and recreational cyclists to the fully closed course along the Great Ocean Road and Otway Ranges. The annual event honours the life of Australian cyclist Amy Gillett, who was hit and killed by an out-of-control motorist in 2005 while cycling with her team-mates in Germany. There are three rides for cyclists to choose from: • 110 kilometre Gran Fondo, a UCI World Cycling Tour qualifier event with gradients of up to 12 per cent • 40 kilometre Medio Fondo from Lorne to Apollo Bay, and • 14 kilometre Piccolo Fondo from Lorne to the Cumberland River lookout and back. The Piccolo Fondo is a community ride for people of all ages, and is free to enter for Surf Coast Shire and Colac Otway Shire residents. Amy’s Gran Fondo aims to raise at least $150,000 to continue the expansion of the Cycle Safe Communities initiative, and nearly $21,000 has been raised as of last week. The community information sessions, to give residents and businesses a chance to discuss specific information on the event, will be held at the Deans Marsh Hall tomorrow, at Mantra Lorne on Thursday, the Apollo Bay Hotel on June 26 and the Wye River General Store on June 27. All sessions will run from 7-8pm. Registrations for the ride are now open. For more information, including maps and road closure times, head to amysgranfondo.org.au.

Great Ocean Road to get free WiFi BY JAMES TAYLOR FREE Wifi is coming to parts of the Great Ocean Road as part of a regional tourism initiative by the state government. Last week, South Barwon MP Andrew Katos announced the $40,000 grant for the project, which will be developed by Tourism Victoria and key tourism partners. Mr Katos said the project would deliver free wireless internet at iconic regional locations. “In addition, the region will also develop an integrated marketing campaign to promote awareness of these WiFi hotspots to enhance the visitor experience from intrastate and interstate markets.” The state government is touting the Great Ocean Road region as a destination for local, interstate and international tourists who are keen to explore the villages of Torquay, Lorne, Anglesea, Apollo Bay and Port Fairy, sample the food and wine of Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula and witness the beauty of the 12 Apostles. “We want visitors to be able to share images of the Great Ocean Road with their friends and family, and use other social media forums to promote the region. “Consumer behaviour in accessing tourism information and promotion has changed dramatically and the increased use of digital media has meant there is a need to incorporate this activity into marketing campaigns,” Mr Katos said. Minister for Tourism and Major Events Louise Asher said the funding was part of the $350,000 Regional Cooperative Marketing Innovation Fund to generate more opportunities for regional tourism. “The scope of the innovation programs across the state range from technological applications such as free WiFi networks at key visitor locations to mobile applications and mobile optimised websites.

The Committee for Lorne has initiated a first for our town in looking to rally, unite and involve our large group of non-resident Lorne property owners. Over the past months the CfL has been united in our representation of all local community members and core groups of our town, but when 78% of all privately owned residential dwellings are owned by non-permanent residents, we felt we had to be more proactive to ensure the voice of Lorne represented all stakeholders.. As such, on Thursday 20th of June at the offices of Davies Collison Cave Law, we are taking the Committee for Lorne, along with our local councillor Clive Goldsworthy, to Melbourne to meet a cross section of our non-resident property owners. The evening will provide an informal opportunity for non-permanent residents to come and meet with members of our Executive Committee for Lorne and councillor. The event will involve a brief presentation about the Committee for Lorne and current activities, followed by an opportunity for comment, questions and discussion. It is an exciting step for our small number of 1046 passionate and permanent local residents as we look to open our arms and embrace our non-resident property owners who are also passionate about our very special part of the world. It is a natural step: to have one voice for our town, all stakeholders must be included and the benefits that will flow will leverage synergies and relationships to ensure that Lorne becomes a greater place than what it already is – an exciting time ahead for all who love the Lorne Ward! Over the past months the Executive of the CfL have been working with Mr Brian Sadgrove of Sadgrove Design in establishing the artwork of our brand. We have been privileged through a relationship of one of our Committee members to have the “Guru of Australian” design take on a pro bono task for us. Mr Sadgrove has for in excess of 40 years, been at the forefront of Australian graphic design and has won numerous awards in Australia and overseas for his work. To think that the CfL can be graphically represented by the talents of a person whose other clients have included AMP, Mayne Nickless, Royal Botanic Gardens, Yarra Valley Water and Pacific Dunlop to name a few, we are soooo privileged! Stay tuned as over the following months the new brand will be released for all to see!

The Big Top is coming to Town! On Sunday, June 9, the Lorne Business & Tourism Association hosted a launch for the 2013 Festival of performing Arts at Qdos. Over 100 people attended to hear about the program for this year’s event and to be entertained by two of the acts that will be performing this year. The Surf Coast Shire Mayor, Libby Coker was present to launch the Festival and to announce the financial support provided by the Shire for this year’s event. The Festival is the key initiative of the Love Lorne campaign and it is designed to attract more visitors to Lorne outside of the peak summer season. The Shire has recognised that this event has a significant economic benefit for the Lorne community. This year, with the Shire’s support, we have taken a giant leap forward. After extensive discussions, Circus Oz has agreed to make available to us their Foyer Tent that is 25 metres in diameter, and seats nearly 300 people. This tent will be erected on the lawn at the front of Mantra and will be the main venue for events as well as the Festival Hub. Circus Oz has never provided their tents or equipment to other organisations before so we are very proud that they have recognised the significance of the Festival in Lorne and allowed us to provide an experience in our town that is not normally available in country regions. This is a very positive gesture of goodwill by Circus Oz and the goodwill doesn’t stop there. Gavin Murphy of Murphy’s Transport Solutions, a long time homeowner in Lorne, stepped up to the plate and offered to arrange transportation of the tent to and from Lorne as his family’s contribution to the cost of staging the Festival. Lorne will come alive for the 3rd Annual Lorne Festival of Performing Arts, celebrating culture by the sea. Audiences can bathe in an ocean of stories, tunes and visual treats including thrilling chanteuses, bawdy burlesque, street performers, cracker comedy as well as poetry, dance, music, workshops and something for children too.

This year’s program will bring Lorne to life from Friday 6 – Sunday 8 September in venues all around town. The Lorne Festival of Performing Arts offers a chance for both local audiences and those making a special trip to town to experience some world class talents performing against the backdrop of a relaxed seaside lifestyle in a unique and engaging environment. “The Lorne community is not only tightknit, friendly and rightly passionate about their part of the world, they also have an appreciation for artistic expression, which likely comes from being surrounded by a stunning piece of paradise. As the Lorne Festival of Performing Arts establishes itself more and more each year, we love to see locals and visitors from out of town enjoying the treasures of the Festival,” says Artistic Director Monique Harvey. Aiming to attract 2,500 people this year, the Lorne Festival of Performing Arts, is increasing the number of performance spaces and will bring to life venues including Qdos Arts, the art deco Lorne Theatre, the Grand Pacific Hotel, Lorne Foreshore Caravan Park and will also include performances right on the streets. The Festival just wouldn’t be complete without its very own big top and now, for the first time, the Festival will have its very own tent on the Mantra lawn for the duration of the event. The 300 seat venue will play host to the festival merriment and will provide a visual presence that will be hard to miss. Tickets are on sale through www.lovelornefestival.com.au or the Lorne Visitor Information Centre. Peter Spring

COMMUNITY PROFILE When Ken and Chick, a farmer and a nurse, sold their Border Leister Stud at Kerang 2000, they decided on a lifestyle change. Chick managed an Aged Care facility at Rosebud and Ken, an Alpaca Stud at Curlewis before purchasing the Lorne Post Office. They quickly become part of the Community. Ken joined the Lions Club and suddenly found himself convening their Easter Art Show. He also served as Secretary of The Lions Village for five years. During their six and a half years as our postmaster and postmistress they won both National and State Excellence Awards. At the time they were busy building a house and looking forward to retirement when the local Hardware Store was put up for sale. Chick, from a family who had owned a hardware business, persuaded Ken to buy it and trial it for a few years. Two and a half years on, having transformed yet another business, winning an award for 2012 Victoria/Tasmania Thrifty Link store of the year, they say they are in Lorne to stay. They love the bustle and excitement of summer and the warm country mentality the rest of the year. They have three grown children, nine beautiful grandchildren and enjoy escaping to the serenity of Lake Charm and family get togethers. Ken enjoys flying and Chick continues part time nursing at Geelong Grammar. She has a soft spot for the elderly in Lorne. Ken and Chick believe Lorne’s sustainability lies with community involvement and consequently sponsor many local activities.

Fishing campaign claims rejected BY JAMES TAYLOR SURFERS Appreciating the Natural Environment (SANE) have hit back against claims made at a rally in Torquay protesting the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new marine park network. As reported in the June 4 edition of the Surf Coast Times, recreational fishing lobby group Keep Australia Fishing held a rally outside the Torquay Angling Club on June 2. SANE chairman Graeme Stockton, who attended the rally, released an open letter on June 7 stating the group was â&#x20AC;&#x153;truly gobsmacked at the disinformationâ&#x20AC;? from the speakers, which included shadow environment minister Greg Hunt. He rejected Mr Huntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim that recreational fishers had not been talked to and were being locked out, as the federal government had run five rounds

of public consultation. Mr Stockton agreed with Mr Huntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim that Port Phillip Bay was better managed than fisheries abroad, but said it would face enormous pressures in the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sand Flathead, for instance, has declined by 97 per cent in as little as two decades. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reasons for this are still unclear but recreational fishing pressure is almost certainly implicated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Furthermore, for some species such as snapper, the recreational catch is many times the size of the commercial catch.â&#x20AC;? Mr Stockton said the City of Greater Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population would double to more than 500,000 in the next two decades, which would have implications for recreational fishing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yet, while the population of Geelong is growing

exponentially, incredibly Port Phillip Bay is not. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Indeed, nowhere on the planet is it possible to keep placing more and more and more demand, year in, year out, on a resource without expecting a corresponding decline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Amazingly, this is exactly the argument recreational fishers use. While they have been

proactive in some self-management with some success, the real test is a perpetually self-sustaining fishery, which we clearly do not have at either state or federal level.â&#x20AC;? The federal oppositionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempt to disallow the marine parks failed in Parliament earlier this month. See â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fishing businessâ&#x20AC;?, page 24.

Disability scheme gets ready to go BY JAMES TAYLOR THE introduction of DisabilityCare Australia to the Barwon region is less than two weeks away, and more details have been revealed on exactly how it will work. The organisation helping to deliver the national scheme held a public information session at Simonds Stadium on Friday ahead of the introduction of the trial for 5,000 people with a disability, their families and carers on July 1. Alex Gunning, director of engagement for the Barwon branch of the NDIS Launch Transition Agency, said there was incredible anticipation among the staff as the launch drew closer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are down to sleeps, soon weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be down to hours. On July 1, people will be getting resources from the agency.â&#x20AC;? Letters will be sent over the coming months to people with a disability, providers are already signing up, and the My Access Checker tool on the schemeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website is now live. Up to 4,000 people aged from birth to 65 in the City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast Shire, Borough of Queenscliffe and Colac Otway Shire

will be covered by DisabilityCare in its first 12 months, with another 1,000 covered in the next 12 months. Ms Gunning said the scheme would give people full choice and control over the care they needed to a level that was reasonable and necessary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is about you starting with a pizza base, and you being able to put on that base whatever you want. Do you need a wheelchair? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reasonable and necessary. Do you need a pink one? Maybe not.â&#x20AC;? Ms Gunning said early intervention and improving employment prospects were key aims of the scheme. She said 93 per cent of agency staff were front of house, and 14 per cent had a disability themselves. Federal Member for Corio Richard Marles also spoke at the session, and said the DisabilityCare trial would make the Geelong region a centre of excellence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You in Geelong are trailblazers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the experiences you have are going to determine how it operates around the country.â&#x20AC;?

Myki to touch on for Geelong rail BY JAMES TAYLOR MYKI is being extended along the Geelong railway line, with travellers to and from Melbourne able to use the electronic cards from July 29. Most single use and all periodical V/Line paper tickets will be phased out as myki is introduced to commuter rail services across Victoria over the coming months. The touch-on, touch-off cards are already used on the Geelong transit system between Marshall and Lara, but the rollout will make them eligible for all stations between and including Marshall and Melbourne. The change means fares will be time and zone-based, rather than point-to-point.

Most paper tickets will no longer be able to be purchased after September 22. Public Transport Victoria director of customer services Alan Fedda said single, return, weekly, monthly, date-to-date and off-peak tickets were being replaced by myki products. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Passengers now purchasing single, daily and offpeak tickets should switch to myki money, while those using weekly, monthly or date-to-date tickets should switch to myki pass. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the first day of myki on each V/Line commuter corridor, passengers have the choice of switching to myki or can continue to use V/Line paper tickets until they are phased out over the coming months.â&#x20AC;? He said V/Line customers would have more ways

to purchase their ticket to travel under myki, such as online, over the phone, and from retail outlets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Passengers need to ensure they have a valid myki pass or enough myki money on their card to pay for the journey they are taking and this is made much easier by the purchase and top up options which are now available.â&#x20AC;? V/Line chief officer Theo Taifalos said myki could be used across multiple modes and locations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;V/Line customers can now enjoy the benefits of an automated ticketing system â&#x20AC;&#x201C; benefits metropolitan public transport users have enjoyed for many, many years.â&#x20AC;? Customers on V/Line long-distance trains and coaches will continue to use paper tickets.

Myki is being extended along the Geelong railway line.

Highway duplication begins BY JAMES TAYLOR WORKS have begun to duplicate the Princes Highway in Winchelsea, part of the project to improve the national road all the way to Waurn Ponds. On Friday, the sod was turned on the $5.7 million upgrade, which will change the road to a four-lane divided highway between Lennox and Austin streets with on-street parking and a new footpath on the southern side. The works, being carried out by Winslow Constructors, are expected to be completed next year. Corangamite Federal MP Darren Cheeseman said the upgrade, in conjunction with the recent completion of the Geelong Ring Road, would allow motorists to travel for more than 100 kilometres between Melbourne and Winchelsea without encountering a single traffic light. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These upgrades are part of a commitment by the federal and state governments to deliver safer, more efficient roads for freight and regional traffic,

encourage tourism, and support jobs and growth in south western Victoria.â&#x20AC;? State Minister for Roads Terry Mulder said he had frequently experienced the recent traffic conditions in Winchelsea while travelling on the highway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am confident this important project will bring welcome relief to the local community, and improve safety whilst reducing road user frustrations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pedestrian crossings with centre median refuges will be provided near the medical centre and between Olney Street and Barkly Street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand that the country town feel of Winchelsea is of utmost importance to the community, which is why we have worked closely with residents and the Surf Coast Shire to plan the works between Lennox and Austin streets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As part of the upgrade, VicRoads will undertake beautification of the streetscape with the planting of native plants and avenue trees, to ensure the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aesthetic is retained for locals and visitors alike.â&#x20AC;? The $171 million duplication of the Princes Highway between Winchelsea and Waurn Ponds is due for completion in 2015.

Shed fire breaks out in Bellbrae BY JAMES TAYLOR FIREFIGHTERS rushed to put out a burning shed in Bellbrae on Tuesday. The fire in the tool shed behind a house in Jarosite Road, near the corner of the Great Ocean Road, was reported at about 1pm. Firefighters took about an hour to bring the fire under control. A Country Fire Authority (CFA) spokesman said eight appliances were sent to the fire. He said many of the vehicles – which included tankers from Torquay and Freshwater Creek – were there to supply water, as there were no hydrants on the site or nearby. He said the CFA’s fire investigation team was yet to deliver its findings on the fire.

Geelong won’t fund constitutional push for campaign BY JAMES TAYLOR THE City of Greater Geelong (COGG) has not followed the Surf Coast Shire’s stance on a push for local government to be recognised in the constitution. The Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) has asked councils across the state to financially contribute to the Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) campaign supporting the changes, which will allow the federal government to directly fund councils. The MAV sought a voluntary levy of $79,286 from COGG – as reported in the Surf Coast Times on June 4 – based on a population and revenue analysis. However, COGG councillors voted not to provide the funding at their meeting last week. Mayor Keith Fagg said the council had the capacity to use its existing resources to support the campaign for constitutional recognition. He said the campaign would be promoted in the council’s “City News” advertising pages in local media, the council’s website and in its own residents’ information newsletter, “Community Update”, which was delivered to all households in the municipality. The MAV requested a $13,440 levy from the Surf Coast Shire, but councillors voted at their May meeting to provide only $5,000. The federal election in September will include a referendum where people will vote on whether local government should be included in the constitution. ALGA president Felicity Ann-Lewis said the establishment of the referendum was a win for communities across Australia. “Without the inclusion of local government in the constitution, councils are not recognised as legitimate recipients of direct, federal funding and as such, Commonwealth funding for communities is under threat. “We have seen examples of High Court challenges, including the successful school chaplains court case, where direct federal funding has been called into doubt. “Without direct funding from the federal government for local roads and community infrastructure, councils would not be able to provide all the services that our communities need.”

Warralily community development officer Kylie Pollock said the City of Greater Geelong facilitated playgroup is a great support and resource for new mums to the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The playgroup is an opportunity for Warralily mums and dads to get to know their new neighbours and form bonds in the local community, while their children have fun and develop play buddies of their own.â&#x20AC;?

Ceduna kids stoked to surf BY ALI DEANE FIVE instructors, 36 boards, and hours on the road was rewarded recently with the smiles of 43 stoked grommets of Ceduna, in far western South Australia. It was the longest surf tour yet for Torquay company Great Ocean Road Surf Tours (GORST) that took the Vegemite SurfGroms program 1,500 kilometres west to the local kids, who despite living so close to the beach, had never tried surfing. The staff were thrilled to be setting off to the desert in search of some epic waves according to GORST director Alistair Lawson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were met with crystal clear water, white sand, and dolphins â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was like paradise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the help of parents and volunteers, we set up a camp on the beach, and it had a real community feel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A couple of the kids had surfed before, but most of the local Indigenous kids had never tried it.â&#x20AC;? The program ran across the weekend, with a mixture of beach games and activities, and personalised coaching in the surf. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could really see how much they improved; at the start they were all floundering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And at the end of it all, at least three of the kids came up and said it was the best thing they had done in their life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This program goes all up and down the coast, but the remote community of Ceduna is in the middle of nowhere and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always get an experience like this. Yet theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the ocean on their doorstep. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to make it an annual thing, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really cool.â&#x20AC;?

Sustainability in da house BY HAMISH BROOKS THE call has gone out for sustainable house and garden owners to share their knowledge on Sustainable House Day in September. The Surf Coast Energy Group (SCEG) coordinates the local incarnation of the national event, which is now in its 12th year and is seeking people to demonstrate how we might live more sustainably. The event aims to showcase some of Australia’s most sustainable homes to the public. SCEG secretary Julia Brangwyn said last year’s event was a great success with 600 visitors through two homes and two gardens as well as strong attendance at the “sustainable design café”. “We are still looking for people to volunteer their homes this year and for local sponsorship as well. “On the home and garden front, we are especially

interested in anyone who has done any retrofitting to make their home more sustainable. “The Geelong Sustainability Group featured a lot of retrofitted homes last year and it’s very useful to get that point of view. “The new architect design homes have that ‘wow’ factor, but it’s good to see what people can do with older homes. “We’re not just looking for houses; we’re looking for gardens as well.” Ms Brangwyn said this year SCEG would hold a movie night on the night before Sustainable House Day, which is Sunday September 8, as part of their ongoing film series. If you are interested in participating in Sustainable House Day, or for more information, visit sceg. org.au, email info@sceg.org.au or phone Julia on 0410 441 589.

READERS in Geelong and the Surf Coast will have more to choose from when a new mobile library rolls out next year. The $444,000 state government grant to the Geelong Regional Library Corporation (GRLC) towards a mobile library to cover Geelong as well as Aireys Inlet, Anakie, Anglesea, Deans Marsh, Leopold, Lorne, Portarlington, St Leonards and Winchelsea. The new fully disabled accessible truck will have a larger floor space for activities and will introduce roll-on, roll-off collections to enable easier rotation of books, which will provide something fresh for people to loan each time the library truck rolls into town. The cost of the $589,000 vehicle – which is expected to roll out in April – is also being

supported by $144,000 from the GRLC and $5,000 in-kind from the City of Greater Geelong. The grant was announced earlier this month at the Waurn Ponds library by Minister for Local Government Jeanette Powell and South Barwon MP Andrew Katos. Mrs Powell said library services were important community infrastructure to help connect communities and encourage life long learning. “The Greater Geelong and Surf Coast region comprises many vibrant and growing communities that have relied on the existing mobile library service for around 25 years.” Mr Katos said the GRLC and its partner councils had waited a long time for the new mobile library. The $440,000 grant was funded through the third round of the state government’s Living Libraries Infrastructure program.

THE answer that malapropism of the famous refrain from animated TV show South Park is everyone who wasn’t drinking Guinness. Three days of beautiful winter sunshine and wonderful Celtic entertainment graced Portarlington during the 11th annual National Celtic Festival at Portarlington over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend. All day and most of the night, thousands of visitors poured into the town to partake in the warm hospitality and witness some of the world’s best Celtic performers. There was plenty of traditional music, song and dance; as well as a diverse range of cross-over styles and modern influences. Celebrations kicked off early Friday evening with local Wadawurrang elder Uncle Bryon Powell Eliza, 3, from Clifton Springs chips in some change for helping open the festival with a traditional Indigenous Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony. buskers Caitlin and Jane Martin

The festival ended on Monday afternoon with a performance by festival stalwarts Claymore. Highlights included Irish singer/songwriter Eleanor McEvoy’s heartfelt concerts and the performances of multinational group The Outside Track. There were performances from local songstress Imogen Brough, fresh from her stint on The Voice; high-kicking young Irish dancing brothers Celtic Thunder Trio; and talented Scottish duo Mairearad Green and Anna Massie. Plus a reunion of the original members of iconic Aussie band The Ploughboys; and a stirring concert in memory of Claddagh lead singer Jimmy Moore. Many people came to soak up the atmosphere; watch the free entertainment on the Village Stage; browse the undercover Celtic market; and sample such traditional delicacies as haggis, black pudding, Cornish pasties and Scottish shortbread.

New child restraint available PARENTS and carers will soon have another option when choosing a child restraint, with changes announced by Standards Australia last week. From June 7, the Australian and New Zealand standard for child restraints provides an option for manufacturers to produce ISOFIX compatible child restraints for the Australian market. VicRoads director vehicle and road use policy James Holgate said parents should not be confused about the reason for the introduction of ISOFIX restraints. “We would like to reassure parents that the current restraints on the Australian market are very safe – the ISOFIX compatible restraints are not being introduced as a result of any concerns with

the current child restraints, which have all passed Australia’s stringent testing regime. “ISOFIX compatible child restraints will simply provide an alternative method for attaching a child restraint to a vehicle, without the need for using the vehicle seatbelt.” ISOFIX compatible child restraints will have connectors which attach to ISOFIX anchors in those vehicles that have ISOFIX anchors. The child restraint also has a top tether strap which must be used. “While we welcome ISOFIX compatible child restraints to the Australian/New Zealand standards, it’s important to point out that Australia has the most stringent standards for child restraints in the

world,” Mr Holgate said. “We are the only country in the world which requires side impact testing and the use of a top tether strap on all ISOFIX compatible child restraints.” TAC road safety manager Liz Waller said ISOFIX compatible child restraints will require testing to meet the new standards. “Testing still needs to be done before they can be sold in Australia. Anything that encourages parents to restrain their children correctly will help save lives and ISOFIX offers parents another option,” Ms Waller said. To help parents and carers choose the safest child restraint, it is recommended to choose a child

restraint or booster seat that has been independently tested by the child restraint evaluation program (CREP). CREP provides star ratings for crash protection and ease of use for a wide range of child restraints and booster seats. As ISOFIX compatible child restraints become available, they will be included in the CREP testing. CREP is supported by VicRoads, the Transport Accident Commission of Victoria (TAC), the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria (RACV), Transport for NSW, NRMA Motoring and Services and the Royal Automobile Club of Western Australia (RACWA). To find out more about CREP and to view Frequently Asked Questions about ISOFIX, visit CREP.com.au.

New combo for Victoria’s number plate VICTORIA will have a new number plate series for the first time in 60 years with the announcement of the next combination of letters and numbers that will appear on plates featuring the road safety slogan “Stay Alert Stay Alive”. Premier Denis Napthine last week unveiled

the new combination of Number, Letter, Letter, Number, Letter, Letter – for example 1AA 1AA – to replace the current three letter, three number series, which will end with ZZZ 999 in coming weeks. Dr Napthine said the change was the most significant for number plates in more than half a century. “The last time the format of number plates changed was 1953, the year Queen Elizabeth was crowned and three years before the Melbourne Olympics. “While people have been able to purchase custom plates in recent years, the standard issue plate for millions of other vehicles rolling off the production line has remained the same combination of letters and numbers.” Dr Napthine said the new combination had been carefully chosen to keep up with Victoria’s growing needs and ensure it wouldn’t need to be replaced for many decades. “The new generation series will be compatible with current and future databases,” Dr Napthine said. “VicRoads estimates it has more than 37 million possible combinations and the format will last for more than half a century before it will need to be changed. “The next series of number plates is unique in Australia and will ensure that Victorian vehicles are easily identified. “Today’s announcement of a new combination of letters and numbers represents a milestone in Victorian motoring history. “I am especially pleased that the next generation

plates will carry the road safety slogan unveiled last year – Stay Alert Stay Alive – to remind all drivers to be careful on our roads.” Dr Napthine said the state government and its road safety partners, Victoria Police, the TAC, VicRoads and the Department of Justice, were committed to promoting key road safety messages

as broadly as possible. The new number plate format and slogan will begin appearing on vehicles in coming weeks. “This is a key change for Victorian drivers, and it’s fantastic that the new look plates will feature an ever-present reminder of the need to be vigilant on our roads and to stay safe.”

Kooky Clarke converses with Hoodies AN ENTERTAINER has joined the Hooded Plover’s fight for survival. Writer and performer John Clarke – famous for his satirical work on the ABC’s 7.30 – wants to ensure that funding remains available for BirdLife Australia’s beach-nesting bird conservation program. He warned that birds such as the Hooded Plover are at risk if it does run out of funds. The Hooded Plover raises its family on busy beaches next to sunbathers, fishermen and dog walkers and need all the help they can get. “I’ve spoken to the Hooded Plovers who nest on the beach near us,” Clarke says. “They’re very good about it and they never complain. They say they’ve got their

food and habitat organised, but it’s pretty clear they can’t fund their own survival. “This is where we come in.” BirdLife Australia is urgently

fundraising to keep its highly successful beach nesting birds program going. The program trains volunteers to monitor birds and erect signs, fences and nest shelters — and it’s working. The chance of survival for Hooded Plover chicks has improved from two per cent to 55 per cent. “You can see the results by walking along the beach,” said Clarke, who is an avid birdwatcher and conservationist. “In my own community, ‘Hoodies’ are returning to beaches where they have been locally extinct for over 10 years.” Learn how to donate and protect vulnerable beach nesting birds from disturbance by people, their dogs, horses and vehicles at savethebirds.org.au.

Local wine plays it cool, wins

Local associate judge Chris Strickland samples the Pinot Grigio at the International Cool Climate Awards.

BELLARINE wineries Jack Rabbit Vineyard and Leura Park Estate are celebrating major success at the prestigious International Cool Climate Wine Show, held recently in Red Hill. Jack Rabbit Vineyard was awarded the Trophy for Best Pinot Grigio of the show and Leura Park Estate took out a gold medal for their Sauvignon Blanc 2012 as well as silver and bronze medals for its Block 1 Chardonnay Reserve 2012 and 2011 respectively. Now in its 14th year, the International Cool Climate Awards is an annual wine show offering participants and sponsors the opportunity of being involved in a world class event. The event attracts winemakers,

vineyard owners, sommeliers and cool climate wine enthusiasts from around the world. This year’s event involved 582 entries from 130 wineries. Chairman of judges Meg Brodtmann said she was very impressed with the overall standard and quality, and also the diversity of styles within classes. “The show is now attracting the ‘unsung heroes’ of Australian winemaking”. Director of Jack Rabbit Vineyard and Leura Park Estate Lyndsay Sharp said she was thrilled with the results, saying it was exciting for everyone at both vineyards. “It’s gratifying that a lot of hard work by a lot of people is paying off,” she said.

Mrs Sharp attributed a large part of the success to the fact that both Jack Rabbit and Leura Park Estate wines were crafted from premium, handpicked fruit with attention to small batch handling and traditional practices. She also said that the two winemakers – Nyall Condon (Jack Rabbit Vineyard) and Darren Burke (Leura Park Estate) were both extremely talented and displayed very individual, distinctive styles in crafting wines which were reflected in the diversity and styles of both vineyards’ offerings. “The winemakers are also very lucky to be the recipients of great grapes, thanks to the care and attention given to our vines across the board by the vineyard management team headed by Andrew Mahoney.”

Appy bunch at Surf Coast Secondary BY ALI DEANE AFTER opening just 16 months ago, Surf Coast Secondary College (SCSC) has been leading the way in innovative learning, offering students a wide range of subjects and creative new programs. They have just been named as an Apple Distinguished Programs school, in recognition of their innovative, forward thinking work delivering relevant and engaging education to prepare students for the future. SCSC was one of 31 schools in Australia to receive the award and according to assistant principal Erin Weightman she hoped it would be the first of many awards of this kind that the school would receive. Principal Scott Diamond said embracing technology had created engaging ways for students to demonstrate their understanding of topics. “We’ve encouraged teachers to create what they do in their classes, because they’ve got the technology to do so.” Ms Weightman said the teachers should be proud of the work they have done in creating high-end tools for learning, including the iBooks in FUSE, iTunes U courses and flipped lessons.

“Our students should also take pride in the role they have played in grasping the opportunity to be creative learners, who have produced countless high-level products – evidence of their learning – which could be used to teach others around the world.” Year 11 student Georgia Crowley said she was really excited the school had received the award. “Technology is so important at our school; we’re using it in all classes. Having use of these technologies in our learning systems help to develop our skills for the workforce. “I’m pretty excited to get an award, because we are such a new school, it’s pretty amazing.” A key part of the SCSC curriculum is the one to one iPad program for years 7-9, and the school prides itself on embracing technology and learning, putting that in the hands of the students.

Planned burn coverage hit largest 30-year record BY JAMES TAYLOR PLANNED burning on Victoria’s public land has hit a 30-year record, and the state government is looking to keep the fire prevention work going. Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) and Parks Victoria fire crews have reached the planned burning target of 250,000 hectares for 2012/13 and are still carrying out planned burns where possible.

Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith said the burns would go a long way to reducing bushfire risk to people, property and communities, both around the fringes of Melbourne and in regional Victoria. “The preparation and hard work of our DEPI and Parks Victoria firefighters and public land managers has allowed us to reach the 253,000 hectare mark, which is the largest area of public land treated with planned burns in three decades. “What is most impressive is the fact that this

target has been reached by our outstanding crews in a year when they have battled some of the largest bushfires the state has seen in recent years and have also had to contend with heavy rainfall.” He said conditions were now becoming too wet to continue burning in the north east and Gippsland, but there may be opportunities for more planned burns in the west of the state. “The planned burning program is a yearround program and we’ll continue to take every opportunity to carry out this important work.”

He said planned burning was part of an integrated strategy to reduce bushfire risk and is complemented by other work to reduce fuel loads, such as slashing, mowing and clearing. Last year, DEPI and Parks Victoria crews carried out planned burns across 197,000 hectares of land. At the time, it was the largest area covered in the past 21 years.

New WorkHealth mobile unit to visit Torquay TORQUAY workers will have the opportunity to undertake a free, confidential WorkHealth check when WorkSafe Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new WorkHealth mobile unit visits the Baines Crescent Business Estate on June 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;20. The WorkHealth mobile unit is designed to give Victorian workers quick and easy access to a WorkHealth check, and will be visiting business parks across Victoria throughout the year to reach a wide range of businesses, small and large. WorkHealth director Pam Anders said that WorkHealth checks were highly effective in helping workers understand their health risks for type two diabetes and heart disease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The checks take just 15 minutes and are completely confidential. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have your cholesterol, blood glucose, blood pressure and waist measured by a health professional, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also complete a lifestyle questionnaire.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Results are delivered on the spot, along with advice on leading a healthy lifestyle and addressing any risks identified. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For workers who are at risk of type two diabetes and heart disease, ongoing free support is available through the WorkHealth coach program.â&#x20AC;? Ms Anders said the WorkHealth mobile unit was making it easier than ever to help workers understand the state of their health. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our new mobile unit is really helpful for smaller workplaces that may not have the space to conduct the checks in their workplace, or may only have one or two workers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great news for workers who may have missed out on having a WorkHealth check when their employer previously offered them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the mobile unit gives them a second chance.â&#x20AC;? Ms Anders said that any Torquay worker was welcome to come down to Baines

Crescent Business Park and have their free WorkHealth check at the mobile unit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every Victorian worker is entitled to have a WorkHealth check, and so far, more than 730,000 people have taken up the opportunity.â&#x20AC;? Any workers interested in having a WorkHealth check at another location can check the events calendar on the WorkHealth website, at workhealth.vic.gov.au. WorkSafe can also bring WorkHealth checks to your workplace, and offers free resources and tools for healthy workplace programs. The mobile unit will be situated in the car park at Baines Crescent Business Estate, opposite Billabong on Wednesday June 19, 9am-4.30pm and Thursday June 20, 9am2pm. WorkSafe Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new WorkHealth mobile unit.

Hear comes the bus A LOCAL hearing service organisation has teamed up with Geelong Regional Library Corporation to encourage the community to make hearing health a priority. With more than half of Australians over the age of 60 suffering from hearing loss, Australian Hearing is joining with Geelong Regional Library Corporation to offer free hearing checks on the Bellarine Surf Coast mobile library. Manager at Australian Hearing Geelong Ros Jablonsky said because hearing loss

is such a prevalent issue, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to provide the local community with convenient access to hearing services and promote hearing health awareness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Geelong Regional Libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mobile service is a great local community initiative,â&#x20AC;? Ms Jablonsky said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pleased to have the opportunity to team up with them and provide a convenient way for people to check their hearing and make sure they are in good hearing health. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hearing checks are conducted

by local staff from Australian Hearing Geelong and only take around 15 minutes to complete.â&#x20AC;? No appointment is necessary. Australian Hearing will provide hearing checks to any interested adults who visit the mobile library on the day. Australian Hearing provides subsidised hearing care for eligible people, including pensioner concession cardholders and most veterans. For more information visit hearing.com.au or call 131 797.

Warm GAWS paws this winter BY ALI DEANE

Queenscliffe’s Lego event, Queenscliffe Bricks, is ready for takeoff this weekend.

Unconventional Lego convention SCHOOL holiday fun and fantasy is coming early to the Bellarine. An exceptional display of Lego creations and models will go on display in Point Lonsdale. The Point Lonsdale Primary school hall will play host to Queenscliffe Bricks, a display of Lego models provided by the Melbourne Lego User Groups – proudly presented by the Rotary Club of Queenscliffe. The Lego fan convention, which was awarded the Australia Day Community Event of the Year for 2012 in the Borough of Queenscliffe, will be held on June 22-23. Last year’s inaugural event was a huge success with both days sold out. The president of the Rotary Club of Queenscliffe, Marianne Deacon, is excited to bring the second instalment of Queenscliffe Bricks to Point Lonsdale. “The displays will be different to last year, they will be innovative, highly visual and in some instances exhibit complex working movements to thrill and fascinate the young and young at heart,” Ms Deacon said. With the region renowned for its beaches and

popularity during the warmer months, there is a catalyst for bringing interesting and innovative events for people to enjoy during the cooler months. Destination marketing officer for the Bellarine Narelle Needham said the region welcomes special events that bring visitors and enthusiasts to the picturesque Bellarine Peninsula, not only in summer but also in winter when the region still shines. Queenscliffe Bricks models itself as a smaller version of a similar two day event held at the Melbourne Town Hall in January, Brickvention, which is a convention for Lego fans of all ages from all over Australia. Queenscliffe Bricks will be held at the Point Lonsdale Primary school hall, Bowen Road, on Saturday June 22 11am-5pm and Sunday June 23 9am-3pm. Tickets are limited and patrons are encouraged to book online prior to the event through trybooking.com/48033. Adults are $10, children aged 5-14 $6 and children five years are free. If not sold out prior, select tickets may be available at the door.

AS THE winter months set in, Geelong Animal Welfare Society (GAWS) has put a callout for donations of blankets, towels, pet food, toys and kitty litter for the hundreds of animals they care for at their Moolap shelter on the Bellarine. GAWS aims to re-home as many animals as they can, and they have one of the highest animal adoption rates in Victoria. But with up to 200 animals on site at any one time, there are a lot of hungry mouths and cold paws to be taken care of. “We are desperate for blankets and towels, as bedding for the animals, and with food our biggest need is for wet cat food and dry dog food,” Cass Langdon at GAWS said. “And we can always do with kitty litter as we have a large amount of cats.” Ms Langdon said toys were also needed. GAWS two roles are as a pound for lost and stray animals, who spend up to eight days at the shelter, and as an adoption facilitator. Dogs and cats are the main types of animals they care for, but occasionally they have pigs, turkeys, birds, guinea pigs and rabbits. Ms Langdon said there were so many beautiful animals sitting there waiting. “If you’re looking for a pet, you’re not only saving money, but you’re saving a life.” On the GAWS website you can see profiles of the animals looking for a new home. You can also support the shelter by becoming a Friend of GAWS where $11 per month can go towards feeding the animals, or by offering corporate sponsorship of a pen.

This month GAWS is also recruiting volunteers. Head to the GAWS Facebook page, go to gaws.org.au, phone the shelter on 5248 2091, or pop in to 325 Portarlington Road, Moolap for more information or to drop off donated items. No doonas or pillows are accepted due to animals ingesting the stuffing, and it is important to remove any zippers or buttons.

Letters Crash course in Hon. Terry Mulder, MP perception of bias Minister for Public Transport Minister for Roads

Dear Editor, I was interested to read of Surf Coast councillor Rose Hodge’s concern at the number of accidents at the intersection of the Surf Cost Highway and Beach Road, (“Council shines a light on Torquay intersection”, Surf Coast Times, June 4). Her personal interest was spelt out as her nephew’s car was involved in a recent crash there. I share her concern. However, could someone please explain to me how it is Cr Hodge is able to speak out and vote at council about a matter in which she is personally involved and Cr David Bell is prevented from doing just that when it comes to Spring Creek?

Ridiculous road surfacing Dear Editor, Bridge Road, Drysdale, just near the crossing of the Bellarine Peninsula Railway, has recently had some extra road paving done. Previously an unsurfaced road, approximately 100 metres of road now is paved for just 60 per cent of the width of the road! It seems that the developers selling land blocks for housing have to build a paved road so that they can sell “sealed road” to purchasers, but they don’t have to actually pave the entire road.

Dear Editor, I travel along Grubb Road at least six times per day. This is a main route between Curlewis, Clifton Springs, Drysdale, etcetera through to Ocean Grove, Wallington and so on. Often there are unmarked speed cameras on this road. However, almost every time I drive on this road, drivers are driving between 60 and 80 kilometres per hour in the 100 kilometre per hour zone, and then braking heavily as soon as they come to the 70 kilometre per hour zone either to 60 kilometres per hour if they weren’t already doing 60 kilometres per hour. There is minimal opportunity for overtaking – often too risky, but I do see some taking the risk. Why are the authorities not fining drivers for driving too slowly as this type of driving tells me that the driver is not confident enough to drive close to the speed limit, therefore if they are not confident they should not be driving at all. Also, drivers in the left hand turning lane at Jetty Road and Portarlington Road roundabout (coming from Geelong heading towards Drysdale) are too often going straight and cutting off drivers even though it is well signed both on street signs and white marking arrows to turn right only. This roundabout and the one at Shell Road, Ocean Grove, are both used by me on a regular basis and I

am often waiting as someone opposite me has their indicator on to turn right when in fact they are going straight. Authorities can make much revenue if they police these above driver issues. Anonymous Curlewis

Doing a job Dear Editor, You do a job, let’s say concreting, for a client. The client doesn’t want the job done but you tell them you’re doing it anyway. You start doing the job but you don’t tell the client how much it’s going to cost them. You don’t do any homework on what might be in the ground, like power, gas, Aboriginal artefacts, you know, stuff that might affect how to best do the job. But you plough on regardless, make a lot of blues – but that’s ok, we’ll just add that to the bill because the client doesn’t know what it’s going to cost anyhow. The job’s not finished and winter is here but you tell the client what a great job you’re doing and you’ll send them a bill when you work out how much you think you’ll charge.

Fishing business Dear Editor, I write this letter in response to “Fishers fight against marine parks” (Surf Coast Times, June 4) regarding a public rally recently held by recreational fishers to oppose the federal government’s newly created network of marine national parks. Having attended the rally on behalf of Surfers Appreciating Natural Environment (SANE), I wish to say that I was truly gobsmacked at the disinformation given by the group of speakers on the day – including by the Shadow Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt. I wish to make the following points in relation to this misinformation: 1. There was a carefully orchestrated blurring of lines between Commonwealth marine reserves, which are multi-zoned and allow recreational fishing in most zones, with Victoria’s marine national parks, which do not allow recreational fishing. 2. The federal government has continued decades of good work in developing a network of marine reserves that cover the territorial waters around Australia. The federal initiative means there will be far fewer areas where recreational fishers will have to compete with commercial fishers. 3. It should be pointed out that international data by the Food and Agricultural Organisation shows that 30 per cent of the world’s fisheries are overfished and 57 per cent fully exploited. There are few signs of commercial fish stocks in recovery. 4. Shadow Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt said that recreational fishers hadn’t been talked to and were being locked out from fishing. There have been five rounds of public consultation in the Commonwealth marine parks process, and

96 per cent of Commonwealth waters within 100 kilometres of the coast will continue to be available to recreational fishers. 5. The fishing rally was quick to use kids as their symbol for the future of recreational fishing; but the real question is what future those kids will inherit from us as adults if we do not take appropriate action in caring for the environment? I challenge the fishing lobby to reconsider how they wield their power as a lobby group. Their children’s best interests will almost certainly depend on it. Graeme Stockton SANE

NDIS national headquarters for Geelong Dear Editor, The recent announcement that Geelong would be the home of the national headquarters for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is great news. The decision to locate the headquarters of the NDIS, known as DisabilityCare Australia, in Geelong will bring hundreds of new jobs to the region and provide an additional economic boost for Victoria. The DisabilityCare Australia headquarters, combined with the scheme’s Barwon Region office, will bring 450 new jobs to Geelong, create an additional 160 jobs indirectly and provide an economic boost to the region of up to $34 million per year. The state government has long advocated for the national headquarters to be located in Geelong and last July offered the federal government $25 million towards establishment costs. Geelong is a leader in providing disability services to the Barwon region and has a strong local disability services sector, with a history of delivering innovative services that support and empower people with disability, their families and carers. The launch of the NDIS, to commence in the Barwon region on July 1, will help 5,000 people with disability access improved care and support over the three-year launch period. The City of Greater Geelong and the broader community have strongly promoted Geelong as the best location for the headquarters of DisabilityCare Australia. Along with many community leaders and organisations, their efforts have played a pivotal role in delivering the national headquarters through strong and persistent advocacy. My congratulations to all those involved in securing DisabilityCare Australia for Geelong and also to the state government for investing more than $300 million in the first three years of the scheme that will help people with disability, particularly for those in the Barwon region.

BIG BRANDS LOCAL SHOPPING FREE PARKING

Torquay SLSC thanks supporters BY ALI DEANE TORQUAY Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) members extended a big thank you to supporters last weekend at a special supporters evening. Honorary secretary Lisa Taitapanui said the evening was an initiative to embrace those who had helped throughout the year, to show what the club was about and to bring the community together. “It went so well. As a volunteer organisation it’s really difficult to keep up with ‘thankyous’ during the season. “Through a lot of support and extensions of various sponsorships we’ve managed to achieve a lot over the season, and we hope to be able to engage community support going forward, in goods, services and patrolling members.” Torquay SLSC has undergone significant redevelopment works recently, but due to demand from numbers on the beach, the need exists for a patrol room extension, improvements to ambulance

trolley access and the continual need for emergency supplies and maintenance works. Ms Taitapanui said although the season was finished, people were still there volunteering their time. “It can be hard to find the time, and we’ve still got a long way to go. “It doesn’t stop – our windows are rotten, that’s $40,000 – that’s a lot of sausages we’ve got to cook. “Our club would not exist without patrols on the beach, and we always welcome new people. “You get training in life skills and first aid, you get to enjoy the facilities and the community.” The club’s next event is Waves in Winter on July 13. Community groups are also encouraged to have a look at the facilities and use the space in the off season for meetings, and it can also be booked for special functions. For more information contact the club on info@ torquayslsc.com.au or phone 5261 4110.

Barrowful of support for Anglesea garden

Barwon Heads canoe polo player Kal Rawson in action.

Kal puts paddle to the medal A COUPLE of Barwon Heads boys who attend Saint Ignatius College shone at the recent Victorian Canoe Polo championships. Year 8 student Kal Rawson recently won a gold medal representing the Victorian Canoe Polo Under 18 A team. The team was also successful winning a silver medal in an invitational in Nagambie against a strong Australian contingent of teams. Canoe polo is a ball game involving a range of skills including throwing, paddling, passing and eskimo rolling. There is a goal net suspended above the water. Professionally, canoe polo is played in a 50 metre pool or in a river. Kal plays for both Geelong and Victoria and trains in the Barwon

River from September until March every Monday after school. Kal said he hoped to be selected to play for Australia next year. “I love playing canoe polo as it is a mix of a lot of sports such as volleyball, netball and water polo. “It is a mental and physical sport and involves a lot of tactics which I enjoy.” Year 10 student Marcus Neild began to play earlier this year and represented Victoria also at the Nationals at Kardinia pool in the B team, where the team took out a silver medal. A spokesperson for Saint Ignatius College said the school community congratulated Kal and Marcus on their efforts and wished them well in their future endeavours.

ANGLESEA Community Garden members were thrilled to receive a wheelbarrow filled to the brim with garden supplies from the Anglesea Lions Club and Bunnings Torquay last week. Members from the garden were pleased to hear their request for a wheelbarrow had been granted but were surprised and delighted to find it was also filled with gardening goods on Wednesday. Incoming Anglesea Lions president Ken Mollison thanked Bunnings for their generosity in providing the barrow and said he was pleased to be able to use the Lions’ funds to support the community group in their endeavours. “Encouraging the community to be active, grow their own food and eat healthily was an ideal to be supported,” he said. Bunnings team member Debbie Jenkins said Bunnings was committed to contributing to the community and she was delighted to join with Lions in helping the group. The Anglesea Lions contribution to the wheelbarrow is part of their annual distribution of funds, and they are thrilled to announce more than $20,000 will be distributed among local, national and international groups and donations will be made to disaster relief, spinal cord research and drug awareness programs. Other major local recipients of the grants are the Aireys Inlet Skate Park, Anglesea FoodLink, Anglesea Primary

Anglesea Lions incoming president Ken Mollison with Anglesea Community Garden members and grant recipients Winsome Coutts and Jocelyn Cox and Bunnings team member Debbie Jenkins and complex manager Mick Gann.

BY TIFFANY PILCHER WITH the winter chill setting in, Queenscliff Music Festival (QMF) is reminding everyone that balmy nights of summer fun are not that far away with a series of hit makers performing at the QMF Winter Warm Up on Saturday night. The prelude to the full festival in November will feature respected musician and The Voice series one winner Darren Percival, Melbourne master chameleons Eagle and the Worm, along with EMPRA, Chris Russell’s Chicken Walk and The Frowning Clouds. QMF fans will also be hanging out for the muchanticipated festival lineup announcement which is also set to happen on the night. Eagle and the Worm frontman Jarrad Brown said the band is amped to try out some new material they’re currently working on for their new album. “I’m pretty much writing all the time, it’s my fulltime hobby. “We’ll have to test some of it out in Queenscliff, the album won’t be available until next year so it’s going to be a big preview,” he said. With their recent warp from laid-back, feelgood horn enthusiasts to emotive, synth-heavy pop-rockers, Brown said he can’t yet predict what direction the band will take next. “It’s hard to be directive about our sound, for me it’s about making music I like and doing performances I enjoy. “I’m sure the music will continue to traverse into different areas but I’d definitely say we’re pop – that doesn’t mean we’re Britney Spears but it is still pop music.” The eight-piece band’s boisterous live performance is a sight to behold and band leader Brown said he wouldn’t want to work in any other way. “I’ve always enjoyed the chemistry that comes from working with a large ensemble. “It’s a challenge at times but that also brings in an element of surprise and spontaneity that I get a real kick out of.” The Winter Warmup will be the first time Eagle and the Worm will feature in a QMF event and

Brown said their eclectic vibe is perfectly suited to the unique festival. “It has a really nice atmosphere and it’s a really diverse festival for music and arts. “There’s a good mix of young people and stalwarts and I find that’s when Eagle and the Worm can really connect. “When there’s that broad demographic people

tend to respond better and it’s cool that someone can be getting into us and so can their dad at the same time.” The QMF Winter Warm Up is on Saturday June 22 at 7pm at Queenscliff Town Hall, doors open at 6.30pm. Tickets are $27 or $20 for concession card holders and Friends of the Festival and under 18s

must be accompanied by an adult. Drinks and snacks are available at bar prices and raffles and an auction will be held to win a 2012 A1 signed QMF poster. Full festival tickets for the main event on November 22–24 are available now from qmf. net.au and single day tickets will be on sale from August 1.

Eagle and the Worm’s eight-strong lineup will be featured at Queenscliff Music Festival’s preview event and lineup announcement, the Winter Warm Up on Saturday June 22.

G R A P E V I N E BROUGHT TO YOU BY

JON HELMER

Southern exposure CONTINUING on from last week with exotic grape varieties and the like, our attention now focuses on an obscure producer from the Languedoc region in the south of France. This region is renowned as a major wine area, producing over a third of the grapes grown in the whole of France, and as such is a significant contributor to the infamous European “wine lake”. With a reputation as a mass producer and economic realities severely biting the bottom line, it’s not surprising to see that some smaller producers are focusing on niche “new world” wine markets with higher quality, single varietal wines. One such producer is Chateau Viranel in the small appellation of St Chinian in the Languedoc, located in the commune of Cessenon, with over 40 hectares under vine on the Mediterranean coast. Saint Chinian is thought to be the oldest winemaking area in the region, having cultivated grapes since ancient times. But, it really hasn’t been till modern times that the region has got serious about quality. In 1951 it was classified as “Vin Delimite de Qualite Superieure” (VDQS), the second highest category of French wine. Then in 1982, the area was awarded “Appellation d’Origine Controlee” status – AOC Saint Chinian. Situated at the foot of the Massif Central, the Mediterranean coast is not far away and the soils vary between schists in the north, which produce deeply coloured and expressively fruity wines, while in the south the soils are more clay-based and chalky, and produce weaker, less robust wines. Here are three great examples from Chateau Viranel, one of the pre-eminent producers in the region worth checking out.

2011 Chateau Viranel Aromes Sauvage IGP “Vin de Pays de Cessenon” ($33) The grape used here is “Alicante Bouschet”, which was created and developed by Henri Bouschet in 1855. It was the result of crossing the grape variety

of Petit Bouschet with Grenache. Once very common in the south of France as it was very high yielding, it’s popularity has declined over the years due to its rustic characters, however, if kept to small yields, it can express some really unique characters and tannic power. This wine is made from 75-year-old vines, handpicked, de-stemmed, traditionally vinified with a long maceration time to soften the tannins and give added flesh to the fruit. Think aromas of wild herbs like thyme and fennel, with gushing ripe black fruits, and dark choc/mocha nuance and spice. Even though the colour is very, very dark, the wine is not heavy, but full and fleshy with a fine edge of pepper and graphite and good even length on the finish.

GPAC dishes up theatrical delight BY ALI DEANE A CAST of 62 of Geelong’s most talented young performers will bring the musical comedy Once Upon a Mattress, the story of The Princess and the Pea, to life over the next two weekends. The medieval musical combines love, adventure with side-splitting comedy for the whole family, in three performances at Geelong Performing Arts Centre’s (GPAC) Playhouse Theatre from Saturday June 22-29. The Geelong Society of Dramatic Arts (GSODA) junior players will take audiences on a journey to a faraway kingdom under the rule of a devious Queen Aggravain who is looking for a suitable wife for her son Prince Dauntless. Queen Aggravain’s husband is struck mute by a witch’s curse, so the queen must turn to her trusty wizard to help her devise a series of impossible tests for prospective princesses.

Directed by Sadat Jon Hussain, with vocal directors Hannah Petrie-Allbutt, Georgia Van Etten and choreographer Xavier McGettigan, Once Upon a Mattress features Rachel Glynne and Ryan Bentley in the roles of would-be lovers Princess Winnifred and Prince Dauntless; Annelise Lindeberg as the manipulative Queen Aggravain; Callum Smith as the mute King Sextimus; and Mitchell Dowling as the Wizard. Featuring a fabulous score with enchanting songs by Mary Rodgers (the daughter of musical legend Richard Rodgers), bright costumes and colourful sets, this rollicking spin on a familiar tale of royal courtship will make you laugh out loud and have you looking at fairy tales in a whole new way. Once Upon a Mattress will be at The Playhouse, GPAC, on Saturday June 22 at 2pm and 7.30pm, Friday June 28 at 7.30pm and Saturday June 30 at 2pm and 7.30pm. Tickets are available by phoning 5225 1200 or online at gpac.org.au.

2011 Chateau Viranel “V de Viranel” AOC St Chinian Rouge ($43) A blend of 60 per cent Shiraz and 40 per cent Grenache from 45-year-old vines grown on chalky/ limestone terraces, handpicked with yields restricted to increase the quality of the fruit producing full generous fruity wines with great colour, character and depth. Extremely dark and brooding in colour, with an expressive nose of violets, liqueured cherries, prunes, liquorice, blackcurrants and spices such as cloves, cinnamon, and star anise. The tannins are noticeable, yet velvety on the rich flavoursome palate.

NV Chateau Viranel “Gourmandise” Cartagene Rouge 500ml ($55) Sourced from the Cartagene Appellation from vines planted in 1939, this is a liqueured wine produced by blending the grape must with Languedoc brandy and then ageing it using a Solera method in oak barrels. Intensely aromatic with wafting notes of cherry, blackcurrant, raisins/prunes and rose petals, these complexities continue to flow through onto the delicately sweet palate. The weight and balance are a highlight alongside the length of flavour and finish of the wine. If you’re into fortified wines, you’ll love this.

Scarf Festival farm food celebrates AT HOME Diamonds with Tony Le Deux

Romantic lamb grand slam

I WAS about to write an article on slow cooking and in particular Frank Camorra. Frank is the founder and chef of the now famous MoVida in Melbourne. He has worked very hard for many years to become an overnight success. Born in Barcelona, the family moved to Australia when he was five years old. He was always interested in cooking and a trip to Spain in 2000 was the genesis for MoVida. Frank has long stated that the fresh ingredients and the abundance of produce available in Melbourne have allowed him to replicate the tastes of Spain. (Gourmet Traveller described it as the best Spanish food in Australia). I was mentioning my article to a customer at Torquay Farm Foods and he told me of his favourite recipe from The Two Greedy Italians cooking show. The classic Italian dish of lamb and peas. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t choose between Frankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slow cooked Spanish lamb or The Greedy Italians slow cooked lamb and peas. They are very similar in approach and typify the two countries. The Spanish with sherry and paprika and the Italians with wine and anchovies. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t decide which I liked more, so for the first time I am including two recipes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you decide which one is best.

BY ALI DEANE MANY stitches, creative talent and hard work has led to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Scarf Festival officially launched during the first week of June at Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home of wool â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the National Wool Museum in Geelong. Over 300 scarves â&#x20AC;&#x201C; stitched and created this year to reflect the theme of Home â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from across the country, the UK and US flooded in, each vying for

Frank Camorra Slow Cooked Lamb INGREDIENTS 2 tbsp olive oil 2onions, finely chopped 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 3 fresh bay leaves 1 tbsp thyme leaves 3 red capsicum, seeds removed, finely chopped 4 large tomatoes blanched, peeled, seeds removed, coarsely chopped 500 ml dry sherry 30 gm (1/4 cup) sweet paprika 1.5 kg boneless lamb shoulder trimmed cut into 3cm pieces

METHOD Preheat oven to 150C. Heat olive oil in a large casserole dish over medium heat. SautĂŠ onion, garlic, bay leaves and half the thyme until soft (10-15 minutes). Reduce heat to low medium, add capsicum, cover with a lid and stir occasionally until very soft (25-30 minutes). Add tomato and stir until sauce thickens and starts to catch on bottom of pan (25-30 minutes). Add sherry and bring to the boil over medium heat (3-5 minutes). Add paprika, 1 litre hot water, and return to the boil (7-10 minutes), reduce heat to low and cook, skimming scum from surface (10-15 minutes). Spread lamb in a single layer in a roasting pan, scatter with remaining thyme and season to taste. Spoon over sauce and roast until meat almost falls apart (2 1/2-3 hours). Serve with a little sauce and rosemary-roasted Nicola potatoes to the side.

Two Greedy Italians Lamb and Peas INGREDIENTS 1kg boned lamb shoulder, cut into large chunks 150ml extra virgin olive oil 2 onions, 1 carrot, 1 celery stalk all roughly chopped 5 garlic cloves, crushed 25g tin anchovy fillets Sprigs of thyme

one of the annual awards. In all their beautiful forms including knitted, crocheted, felted, woven, embroidered and even origami, the scarves are now on show, accompanied by craft demonstrations, a school and school holiday program and the ever-popular Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Award where you can vote on your favourite scarf. City of Greater Geelong councillor and portfolio holder of arts and culture Michelle Heagney said the Scarf Festival was now one of the most important events on the Australian textile calendar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is one of those wonderful hybrid creative initiatives, somewhere between craft, art, installation and poetry.â&#x20AC;? Councillor Heagney was one of three judges alongside assistant curator of Australian fashion and textiles at National Gallery of Victoria Danielle Whitfield and artistic director at Craft Victoria Joe Pascoe. The Annual Scarf Festival celebrates the humble scarf in all its incarnations, from a modest winter knit to an artistically and lovingly crafted art form, and it runs until August 25. Awards have already been presented at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival. Scarf of The Year was awarded to Laurie Paine for Diamonds, Minister for the Arts Award went to Helen Henry, Cecile Falvey OAM was thematic winner, Lis Mertens was acknowledged with a category win in Sustainable Practices, Laurie Paine won for her woven number, Knitted Award went to Margaret Langford, Tiana Wells won the Primary School Award, and Htoo Gay Ku Shwe and Myaing Thein Win did their secondary school proud. The awards were announced at a special launch event which also featured a fashion parade of the winning scarves. Most scarves are now available for purchase through the museum shop. The daily craft demonstration program includes sessions in card making, bead weaving, felting, embroidery, weaving, drawing, spinning, and even pyrography. For more information, head to nwm.vic.gov. au, email scarffestival@geelongcity.vic.gov.au or phone 5272 4701.

METHOD Season the lamb chunks with salt and freshly ground black pepper and set aside. Heat the olive oil in a large lidded pan and fry the onions, carrot and celery for 4-5 minutes, or until softened. Add the garlic, anchovies, thyme and chilli, and continue to cook, stirring, until the anchovies have almost dissolved into the oil. Add the lamb chunks and fry for a further 4-5 minutes, or until browned all over. Stir in the wine and continue to cook until the volume of the liquid has reduced by half, and then add the vinegar. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer gently for 20 minutes. Add the peas, potatoes and tomatoes, cover again and continue to cook for about an hour, until the sauce has reduced by half.

One act plays for shortest days BY TIFFANY PILCHER THE shortest day and the longest night of the year is near and to celebrate, the Potato Shed is bringing out the fire pits, turning up the tunes and delivering some brilliant new theatre. The Potato Shed and Theatre 3222 will present two new one act plays for Winter Solstice on June 21 and 22. The first play is titled Come on Home John and looks into the lives of four women over the past

100 years and the relationships with their sons John. The second play, Baggage, deals with the physical and emotional junk people carry throughout their lives and whether or not they can find a way to remove the weight. Potato Shed spokesperson Rob Macleod said they love having the opportunity each winter to present original works, encourage new playwrights and bring together a hugely talented group of performers.

“Winter Solstice is always a special event on our calendar, with the fires and warm mulled wine music and then the two plays – it’s just a great night out to take away the winter blues.” If you can’t wait until the weekend, local favourites Shirley Power and Colin Mockett are performing a horrifyingly humorous show the Potato Shed tonight. Gloriously gory and drop-dead hilarious, The Dead Funny Musical Show is filled with sidesplitting jokes and songs of death, destruction and

other grisly stories to give you the best laugh at death you’ve had in your life. The Winter Solstice one act plays will be performed at The Potato Shed, Peninsula Road, Drysdale on Friday June 21 and Saturday June 22 at 8pm and The Dead Funny Musical Show is on Tuesday June 18 at 10.30am. Tickets for both shows are available online at geelongaustralia.com.au/potatoshed or by calling 5251 1998.

One man, one ring, one hour BY TIFFANY PILCHER

Canadian performer Charles Ross will act out the epic and hilarious trilogy, One Man Lord of the Rings at GPAC on Sunday June 30.

IF YOU’RE looking for something a little different to entertain you this month, you probably won’t find anything more unusual and amusing than Charles Ross’ one man performance of the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy. The Canadian actor, playwright and selfproclaimed “professional geek” has compressed the blockbuster tale into one 60 minute play, One Man Lord of the Rings, which will feature at Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) on Sunday June 30. Audiences will see Ross recreate the entire world of middle-earth and complete Frodo’s epic journey from the shire to the fire – armed with nothing more than a pair of elbow pads and his outrageous imagination. Based more on the Peter Jackson films than

Tolkien’s books, Ross embodies the nuances of each character, transforming into Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin, Aragorn, Boromir, Gimli, Legolas, Gandalf and the malicious Gollum at a hilariously rapid pace. Lord of the Rings puritans can rest easy, Ross has been endorsed by Gandalf himself, Sir Ian McKellen, who said, “If you liked Lord of the Rings, you’ll love Charlie Ross’ version”. Ross created the show after the success of One Man Star Wars Trilogy and his latest endeavour has received praise all over North America, Asia and the UK. Charles Ross will perform One Man Lord of the Rings at GPAC, 50 Little Malop Street, Geelong on Sunday June 30 at 7pm.

BY TIFFANY PILCHER ANOTHER excellently eclectic showcase of entertainers has been announced for this year’s Lorne Festival of Performing Arts. The outrageous family friendly festival launched at Qdos Arts on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, with artistic director Monique Harvey announcing a huge range of acts which vary from the hilarious to the poignant. Among the many performers, festival favourite Mikelangelo will be returning to bring the music of Johnny Cash back to life and cheeky Circus Oz ring mistress and former Machine Gun Fellatio vocalist Christa Hughes has two full length cabaret shows up her sleeve. Ms Harvey said the opening night cabaret is an event not to be missed as most of the

Let Lorne entertain you festival’s performers are showcased on one hugely entertaining night. “Almost every performer on the program does a short performance so it’s an excellent preview to the whole festival and it’s also just a whole lot of fun.” She said a major change this year will be the new performance sites that have been carefully chosen to provide the perfect backdrop for many of the shows. “We are really trying to capitalise on Lorne’s beauty, there will be performances on the pond at Qdos Arts, at the Fisheries Co-op, in the caravan park and other places all over the town - it’s going to be a totally different experience.” The festival is on Friday September 6 through to Sunday September 8. Go online lovelornefestival. com for performance schedules and more.

The more you communicate and cooperate with loved ones, the more pleasant the week will be. You may have to revisit an old problem and eat some humble pie but it will be well worth the effort. The weekend full moon gives you a much-needed energy boost. So it’s time for gung-ho goats to get physical via activities like golf, walking, jogging, hiking or rock climbing.

Mercury and Venus link up in your domestic zone on Friday so spruce up your Aries abode with cleaning, redecorating or DIY projects. Entertaining at home is favoured – plus family members could do with some extra TLC too! The full moon on the weekend charges up your career zone, but think carefully before you commit yourself to a problematic project.

Pace yourself Crabs, and don’t feel you have to do everything at once. With the sun moving into your sign where it joins Mercury and Venus the focus is firmly on your number one priority - family. Be inspired by birthday great Meryl Streep born on June 22, 1949 “I am wired for family … and my family really does come first. It always did and it always will”.

This week, Mercury and Venus help you navigate your way through work problems, with extra tact and charm. But it will be tricky to get the ratio right between professional demands and family responsibilities. Balance is the key! The universe also shines a spotlight on your goals for the future. Don’t play it safe, make your aspirations as big and beautiful as possible.

Luxury-loving Bulls - do you fantasise about upsizing your lifestyle? With the full moon activating your aspirations zone, don’t proceed unless you have the cold-hard cash to finance your super-sized dreams. The sun, Mercury and Venus are all visiting your communication zone, so it’s a fabulous week to share special conversations with like-minded souls.

Don’t let others hijack your dreams. You need to be the captain of your own ship; and the master of your own destiny! Thursday’s sun/Jupiter hook up is a terrific time to network with colleagues and make important connections with influential people. Plus Sunday’s full moon brings a current work or health issue to a head - so you can then proceed in an exciting new direction.

You’re in the mood to communicate with others, as you discuss complex subjects and delve into deeply emotional areas. It’s also the perfect week for Scorpio super-sleuths to solve a problem, research a topic or uncover a secret, as your detective skills swing into top gear. On the weekend, some basic common sense is needed so you can separate fact from fiction.

A work project is taking up a lot of your time but, if you hang in there, it will pay off in the long run. If you’ve been looking for employment, Saturn encourages you to be persistent, as there are no quick-fixes. Have you been having ongoing problems with a child, teenager or friend? This week, Jupiter helps you find a satisfactory solution that is beneficial to both sides.

Are you making the most of Mars and Jupiter journeying through your sign? The next few weeks are the perfect time to take on adventurous challenges, as you ignore the half of you that screams “I can’t do that!” or “It’s just too hard!” Instead, tune into the optimistic Twin within. Plus surround yourself with positive people who boost your confidence and encourage your dreams.

Friday is your pick of the week, as Mercury and Venus boost your communication and social skills. So it’s a super day to arrange a job interview; schedule an important appointment; broach a sensitive subject with a loved one; or host a successful meeting or soiree. The weekend full moon fires up your entertainment zone, time to stop working and start socialising!

Jupiter your ruling planet joins forces with the sun in your partnership zone. So it’s a fortuitous week to join an online dating site, go on a first date, fall in love, propose, get married or renew your wedding vows. Joint business ventures are also favored. But be careful with cash and credit – and don’t sign on the dotted line until all the finances are completely finalised.

Neptune your ruling planet is moving slowly through your sign, which boosts your compassionate and charitable nature. Plus the sun, Mars and Jupiter put you in the mood to assist a loved one who’s in need. Your motto for the moment is from Prince William born on June 21, 1982 “My guiding principles in life are to be honest, genuine, thoughtful and caring.”

CLOUD BREAKS FOR KING KELLY Slater, 41, continues to create history that will be near impossible to repeat. Slater posted his 53rd world tour victory last week, claiming his second consecutive Volcom Fiji Pro over Mick Fanning, in pumping six-to-eight foot barrels at Cloudbreak. Fanning had the lead, but Slater came back to win with 19.80 out of a possible 20, to Fanning’s 15.87. In his quarter final against Sebastian Zeitz Slater’s deep backhand tube riding scored him a perfect 20, the second of his career, and only the fourth in ASP history. He now sits atop the world tour ratings, with 26,950 points. Fanning is hot on his tail with 26,200 points and South African Jordy Smith is currently in third spot on 23,450. This Friday is International Surfing Day – a way to celebrate the sport of surfing and give something back to the oceans, waves and beaches that give us all so much. Locally surfers will enjoy a wave, and Quiksilver in Torquay will host a special screening of Storm Surfers (next Friday night June 28). Surfrider Foundation will be there, and there will be appearances by big wave surfers Tom Carroll and Ross ClarkeJones. Head to Surfrider Foundation Surf Coast Branch on Facebook for more information. Photo: ASP/KIRSTIN

Coutas keep it coming BY ALI DEANE TOM LIMB’s Queenscliff Coutas have the depth, form and the hunger for another premiership and with a 10-0 win loss record this year they are on their way to going three in a row. Queenscliff drove home a 56 point win over Geelong Amateur on the weekend in the top of the tables clash at Queen’s Park. The Coutas winning streak doesn’t look like ending this week in round 11, where they meet Newcomb

Power at home. With players like Eddie Grout, a 36 deep playing group, and confidence from their dream run in 2013, Saturday’s match, 15.10-100 to Geelong’s 6.8-44, put the full stop on the first half of the season. “These last few weeks we have definitely built into some form. I was unsure how it would unfold, but we managed to switch it on,” Limb said. “Geelong was definitely in form and they’re a really good side. “We’ve got a lot of players coming through the

side, and when they put on the jumper, they do what they’ve got to do. They’re prepared to do what they’ve got to do to get the side over the line.” Limb said there was no way they thought they could be in this position, despite coming off last year with the premiership, as defending champions. “The hunger is definitely there across the group. Our premiership of 2011 was our first in 36 years, and the drought was broken. There is a window there. And we’ll do what we’ve got to do to get up there.” There are other good sides in the competition too,

admitted Limb, with Torquay, Barwon Heads and Drysdale all playing good football. Geelong Amateur currently sits in second spot on the ladder, followed by Torquay, Drysdale and Barwon Heads. “It’s a long season, and we’ve got a long way to go. “We make sure we’re switched on every week, and this week will be no exception. The guys are full of confidence, but Newcomb has been competitive this year. We’re heading out to play four quarters of footy, and we’re confident we can get the job done.” For results from round 11 see page 86.

What does the future of our snapper fishery look like? Fisheries Victoria scientists have conducted an annual survey of juvenile (baby) snapper (315 centimetres in length, under one year of age) abundance in Port Phillip Bay since 1993 using research trawls. Port Phillip Bay is known to be the most important spawning and nursery area for snapper in central and western Victoria. Spawning in the bay is responsible for most of the replenishment of the “western” snapper stock, which extends from Wilson Promontory to south east South Australia. Because most of the snapper in the western stock originate from the spawning in Port Phillip Bay the surveys of baby snapper in Port Phillip Bay provide a leading indicator of future snapper fishery production for central and western Victoria. The survey is therefore critical for the snapper fishery assessment process and for informing the expectations of recreational and commercial fishers into the future. Sampling with the small research trawl is conducted at nine areas within Port Phillip Bay, with sampling areas located in the known major snapper nursery areas in the bay such as Hobsons Bay, between Mordialloc and Frankston, and near Point Wilson. The small baby snapper are most common in depths between 10 and 18 metres. Over the 21 years of information from trawl surveys, it has become clear that snapper spawning success is highly variable from year to year and that this variation is a major influence on the variation in catch rates experienced by recreational and commercial snapper fishers. The variation is linked to factors influencing survival of snapper during their first few weeks of life (the larval stages). It is thought that variation in the availability of certain types of microscopic planktonic food for the snapper larvae is a key factor in influencing their highly variable survival rates in the bay. Over the last 5 to 10 years, snapper catch rates have increased due to high spawning success in summers 2000/2001, 2003/04, 2004/05. These groups of fish dominate the catches at the moment. It takes 3-4 years after birth for a snapper to reach the legal minimum length of 28 centimetres and about 6-7 years to become an adult fish (over 40 centimetres length). Over the last seven years, the surveys showed three years of around average spawning success and,

adult snapper will increase. My Opinion: It is obvious our fisheries are subject to a number of environmental factors that can have huge affects on spawning rates and stability. We need to commence a program to look at our streams and estuaries that feed into our bays and oceans and the health of these feeders if we are to maintain a healthy eco system for snapper spawning into the future.

worryingly, four years of very poor spawning success or complete failure of spawning altogether, leading to forecasts of declining adult catch rates over the next five years. As such, the March 2013 survey was very important and keenly anticipated. The results from the 2013 survey are very encouraging. The number of baby snapper that have survived from this summer’s spawning is the equal third highest in 21 years. This new group of fish will be noticed by fishers over the coming two years by the wide spread abundance of small pinky snapper (15-22 centimetres length), particularly in the bay and coastal waters, while in three years’ time catch rates of legal size snapper will increase, and beyond six years’ time the catch rates of larger

Athletes set to Locals shine in Forrest Run master Geelong BY ALI DEANE

THE start line was wall-to-wall with runners from all over Australia but it was our local athletes that shone at the inaugural Run Forrest on the long weekend in June. Torquay’s Peri Gray blitzed the challenging 21 kilometre course with the fastest overall women’s time of one hour, 49 minutes, 32 seconds, while over in the men’s was Scott McGraw from Jan Juc with a time of 1:37:20. In the shorter 10 kilometre, Geelong’s Scott McPherson ran home in 39:21 and Emily Cust crossed the line in 44:33. Event director Mick Sheehan from Southern Exposure said it was really great to see so many locals competing in the field of almost 500 that took on the challenging trails of the hinterland town of Forrest. “It was a very hard event, with undulating terrain and obstacles. “There was some confusion with the direction in the 10 kilometre event, so it was full of surprises, but across all categories runners were very strong and adapted well to the trial running terrain. “The course was world class, the weather certainly turned it on, and many of the runners want to return and bring their friends.” The courses traversed through pristine parts of the Otways, around Lake Elizabeth, and some challenging single-track. “It was a fantastic turnout, there were some really good local runners and it was great to see that the spread of competitors was half-half women and men. “It didn’t just cater for elite athletes, you’ve got your Peri Grays and Scott McGraws, but we had runners across the board. Geelong mayor Keith Fagg had a good day out, and it was great to have David O’Brien of the (state) upper house there.”

BY ALI DEANE

Run and won - Scott McGraw from Jan Juc and Torquay’s Peri Gray blitzed the challenging half marathon trail run in Forrest. Here they are in action, and with the inaugural Run Forrest champions trophies.

From all reports Run Forrest will return next year, expecting to draw even more competitors. In the mean time, local sporting enthusiasts will be turning their attention to Southern Exposure’s Mountain Bike Festival, the Surf Coast 100 in Anglesea this October, entries are open now. Southern Exposure thanked event sponsors of Run Forrest - Patagonia, Headsox and Hoka One One running shoes.

THIS October Geelong will be host to the XIV Australian Masters Games drawing participants from across Australia together for eight exciting days of sport. Sixty sports will be contested from athletics, to rowing, volleyball, sailing, darts, boxing, gymnastics, football, cycling, equestrian and surfing. The only requirement for athletes is to meet the age requirement – for most sports it is 30 years or over. Elaine Janes of Ocean Grove only started her sport of weightlifting at the age of 57, and she will be representing Geelong Weightlifting Club in the October Masters Games in powerlifting. Janes holds the title from the 2011 World Masters Weightlifting Championships in Cyprus, two silvers and a bronze from world championships and took home silver from the 2009 World Masters Games in Sydney. She has competed in many masters games, and has just returned from the Australian Masters Weightlifting Championships in Launceston on the weekend. Before the Masters in Geelong, Janes will travel to the World Masters of Weightliftng in Torino, Italy in July. Janes’ philosophies match those of the Australian Masters Games, centred on the benefits of sport for health, wellbeing, and positive active lifestyles with social outcomes and opportunities. “I’ve done a few now, but even just to try it, you don’t have to qualify, you can just go in it,” Janes said. “It’s never too late to start, and you are never too old.” Head to australianmastersgames.com or call 4242 4304 for more information on your sport, and to enter.

PORTARLINGTON GOLF CLUB I HAVE been taken to task by a club member for not reporting on some of our interclub events so now I must rectify. Firstly, congratulations to Jenny Edmanson for her great win in the Marrum Cup Nett event. Congratulations also to the team of John Pearson, Kim Bright, Bob Mainsbridge and Ian Flanders on winning the Winchelsea Shield. They had a great day of golf but were less successful in bringing the old “club bus” all the way back home. Last weekend, we ran the two day Men’s Hemsworth Trophy Multi Round Event. Some excellent scores were shot on Saturday but the challenge is to back up with a second excellent round on Sunday. Dieter Menzel and Alexander Hirst brought in an excellent score Saturday but couldn’t sustain the performance. Jim Wilson and Ian Flanders were not sprinters but this is an event where the stayers take the trophy. Well done to all who made the cut. (Is that all right Ian? Will you stop being a pest now?) While talking of the “Club Bus”, there are actually two vehicles and the older one was the bus that didn’t quite make it home. It now has a new water pump and is ready to spring into action if needed. The regular “Club Bus” is a shiny new machine with an obliging driver ready to collect you and bring you to and from the club. If you are planning a big night out, it is recommended you contact the club for information about this service. This way you can have your nice night and get home with a minimum of fuss. 130 Hood Road, Portarlington Tel: 5259 2492 Fax: 5259 2959

Girls power onward

Surf Coast FC girls are leading the region in the game and making an impression across Victoria.

IT WAS another great weekend for the Surf Coast Football Club girls and women last weekend, with the state league womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team powering to the top of the table after a spectacular 4-0 away win against the previously unbeaten Melbourne Western Suburbs squad. In a gracious after match concession, the Western Suburbs coach acknowledged the quality of the young Surf Coast team who put on a football clinic, moving the ball to all parts of the ground with some beautiful sequences of passing. Whilst the Western Suburbs women were unlucky not to score, with one shot rolling into the post off the uneven grass surface, Surf Coast maintained dominance throughout the day. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a day to single any players out, with everyone contributing. The Surf Coast under 14 metro girls also continued on their merry, unbeaten way crushing a feisty Bundoora United team 7-0. Assistant Coach Joe Centorbi said â&#x20AC;&#x153;our girls faced their toughest game this season against a very physical and rough Bundoora United teamâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, once again our girls shone and played with amazing skill and fairness, bringing Bundoora to their knees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone was so proud of our girls and the spirit with which they played.â&#x20AC;? Goal scorers for the under 14 girls included Lara Heric 2, Coby McInerney 2, Caitlin Pickett 2 and Georgia Gordon 1.
