Coles’ plans for Torquay Central revealed
MAJOR MARKET BY JAMES TAYLOR
THE plans for the supermarket Coles intends to build at the Torquay Central shopping centre have been revealed. As part of its planning application to the Surf Coast Shire, a report prepared for Coles states there is significant demand for another supermarket in Torquay and its proposal will enhance the commercial viability and vitality of the centre at 41-57 Bristol Road. As part of the redevelopment, the western half of Torquay Central will
be demolished and a single-storey supermarket – which will take up about a third of the total site – with a leasable floor area of 3,800 square metres will be built. It will have a glazed shopfront along the eastern side and an art wall on the northern side. The works will create a new 200 square metre retail tenancy next to the supermarket and a new 60 square metre retail tenancy at the western end of the existing stores. The amount of speciality retail floor
space will be nearly halved, from 5,308 square metres to 2,976 square metres. The proposal includes 280 car parks – 148 in the proposed basement car park, the 105 remaining inside the centre itself and 27 on Payne Street. Entry and exit to the basement car park will be through a ramp on the south side of the existing car park. The two mature trees in the northwestern corner will be kept, and three new Water Gum trees will be planted in the south-west of the site. There are no proposed changes to the
three-storey building fronting Payne Street. Coles bought the 1.4 hectare site last December for $14 million. Environmental Resources Management Australia prepared a town planning and urban context report for Coles. The report states the proposal will “significantly improve the commercial viability of the centre, which is underperforming financially, and enhance the contribution the site makes to the wider Torquay town centre”.
“The proposal also involves a well considered design response to the site and area more generally.” The report states the redevelopment has been designed to complement the existing shopping centre. The new buildings will generally be no higher than the existing buildings.

Football community rallies for Casey BY RACHEL DELANY THE football fraternity has rallied in support of former Lorne footballer Casey Tutungi in the wake of his diagnosis last week as a quadriplegic. The announcement came from his father at the Austin Hospital, where Tutungi has been for the last three weeks after suffering irreparable damage in what has been labelled a freak accident at a local football match.
The Geelong Football Club is investigating avenues to assist the South Barwon co-coach and former Geelong VFL player and his family in the challenges that will be faced. A fund has been set up â€“ the Casey Tutungi Future Fund â€“ in the hope of significant contributions to assist and meet the demands of what is going to be a long and expensive medical process. Donations can be paid directly into the Bendigo Bank trust account at a Bendigo Bank
Branch or through your own bank â€“ account name Casey Tutungi Future Fund, BSB 633 000, account 149 834 533. More information about the Casey Tutungi Future Fund can be found at caseytutungi.com. For more details, see the â€œCommittee for Lorneâ€? column on page 8. Casey Tutungi, who started his footballing career in Lorne, finished in the top 10 in the Geelong VFL sideâ€™s best and fairest count in 2011.
Meander along, visit the Surf Coast Arts Trail BY JAMES TAYLOR
This squid, carved out of ice by Mark Trinham, was the centre of attention at the launch of the Surf Coast Arts Trail. Photo: JAMES TAYLOR
LOCALS and tourists are invited to follow the Surf Coast Arts Trail again when it returns next month. The trail, which made its debut last year, will feature 60 artists at 29 venues across the length and breadth of the shire. The event was launched last week at the Torquay council chambers on a cold night and with the help of a cool piece of artwork â€“ a large squid carved out of ice on site by Jan Juc artist Mark Trinham. Artists on the August 10-11 trail include painters, print makers, jewellers, photographers, animators and potters.
Shire mayor Libby Coker said the trail celebrated and supported the talent of Surf Coast artists. â€œWe are really fortunate to have so many talented artists in our community, many of whom are inspired by our sense of place and our natural surroundings. â€œThe first event was an outstanding success and proved incredibly popular with locals and visitors alike, creating a terrific atmosphere and Iâ€™m sure this yearâ€™s trail will also prove a hit. â€œThis is a great addition to the Surf Coastâ€™s annual calendar and a great show of local culture.â€? Local visual artist Cinnamon Stephens, whose work appears all along the Surf Coast, said the trail would have a great atmosphere.
â€œIt was lovely on the first trail to meet such a variety of people â€“ some who knew my work and wanted to see where and how I make it, but also many others who discovered me on the trail. â€œIt was very uplifting to have so many lovely comments and to share the space I work in. â€œAs a result, I received a few commissions and sold a few pieces which I didnâ€™t expect. The trail is supported by the council, Surf Coast Arts, Anglesea Art House, FReeZA, Logo Zoo and Quicksilver Foundation. For more information, pick up a brochure/foldout map from a Surf Coast visitor information centre, the councilâ€™s Torquay office, or participating studios, venues and galleries.

Community asked to give where they live BY RACHEL DELANY IT MAY shock the community to learn that 12.8 percent of Australians live below the poverty line. That means in Victoria alone, there are roughly half a million children living in poverty. According to an Australian Council of Social Services report, the most austere poverty line widely used in international research in 2010 was for a single adult living on $358 per week and for a couple with two children, $752. As living costs soar and affordable housing has become increasingly difficult to attain, many members of our community are struggling to make ends meet. In response, Network Torquay is taking part in the sixth annual Cans4Films Festival, an in-store initiative to provide tangible help to deliver hunger relief across the nation. People are being asked to donate a can of food at Network Video stores and in doing so will receive a free weekly rental, or donate

two cans and receive three free weekly rentals. If you don’t have any spare cans, you can still contribute by offering a gold coin donation, which will then be used to purchase more cans of food to feed those in need. “All of us at Network Torquay are proud to be part of the Cans4Films Festival in 2013,” Network Torquay’s Josie Anderson said. “It’s such a great cause, and we’re so happy to be providing practical solutions to such a big problem in today’s society.” Not-for-profit national food relief organisations such as Food Bank and SecondBite work to deliver food into communities, and local community groups are rallying to make sure every person who is need of food has access to it. Anglesea Foodbank, Torquay Food Aid, St Vincent de Paul, the Salvation Army and UnitingCare are among those offering assistance to society’s vulnerable and disadvantaged.

Investigation into common continues BY JAMES TAYLOR PEOPLE are still being restricted from using Winchelsea Common, but the Surf Coast Shire says it intends for the area to eventually return to being public open space. The high level of lead shot on and around the site is assessed by the council and other agencies, including the Department of Health and the Environment Protection Authority (EPA). A soil sampling program is continuing in and around the common – which has been closed since February – to help assess any public health risks and future uses of the land. Last month, the council refused a request from the Winchelsea Gun Club to grant permission for shooting events at the common. However, the council has offered to support a trial shoot using biodegradable targets and steel shot in Colac and working towards an alternative long-term location for the club’s events. Advice is also being
sought from the EPA regarding land remediation. In a statement last week, council said the common would be restored as public open space after assessments of biodiversity, remnant lead and litter and remediation measures are completed. A master plan for the site to identify how the area will be used and infrastructure requirements will also be developed. Surf Coast chief executive officer Stephen Wall said a long-term response required. “The council’s first priority in addressing this issue is the health and safety of the community. “The council is continuing to work through a detailed site assessment of the common and surrounding areas. This is a complex undertaking but important in determining what remediation work needs to be done and how the common can be used in future as public open space. Lead can pose a health risk if it is ingested. More information is available at surfcoast.vic.gov.au.

Stage one of highway works completed BY JAMES TAYLOR THE first stage of the pavement repairs to the busy Surf Coast Highway has finished, with traffic returned to all four lanes. The $3.86 million project is being carried out along four kilometres on the Torquay-bound side of the highway, between Mount Duneed and Blackgate roads, but the works are only complete to just past McCanns Road. Cold weather has postponed the second stage, and works are not expected to resume until September.
VicRoads regional director William Tieppo said it was the wettest June on record, and contractors Civilex had done a fantastic job in keeping the pavement dry. â€œBut we donâ€™t want to build roads in cold weather.â€? â€œThe existing surface was ripped up, strengthened, smoothed and sealed â€“ we rebuilt this section of road from scratch.â€? Mr Tieppo said the repairs were being done in two stages as VicRoads wanted to avoid having counterflow traffic â€“ or cars travelling in opposite
directions on one side of the highway â€“ for the entire four kilometre section. â€œVicRoads would like to thank all motorists for their patience during this first stage of the Surf Coast Highway upgrade and traffic diversion.â€? About 16,000 vehicles a day use the highway, rising to 20,000 in peak times. Roads Minister Terry Mulder, who inspected the completed section on Friday, said he was pleased to announce the re-opening as it would bring relief to the many motorists who depended upon the key tourist route.
â€œThe reconstructed section of the Surf Coast Highway was funded out of the Coalition governmentâ€™s $45 million repair and restore package announced last year for road maintenance. â€œThis is in addition to the $170 million multi-year road maintenance package recently announced as part of the 2013-14 Victorian budget.â€? South Barwon MP Andrew Katos welcomed the completion of this important upgrade. â€œI am pleased to see the completion of the first stage of the highway upgrade as this will make the journey much safer for drivers,â€? he said.
Firefighters get sneak peek of Bellbrae station BY JAMES TAYLOR
(L-R) VicRoads senior projects engineer Steve McGarrigle, Andrew Katos, Terry Mulder, William Tieppo and Surf Coast Shire councillor Brian McKiterick.
TONIGHT, members of the Torquay Country Fire Authority (CFA) brigade will get their first opportunity to walk through the new fire station that has been built at Bellbrae. The walkthrough comes ahead of a meeting later this month to decide whether the town should have its own standalone brigade. The previous Bellbrae fire shed, built in the mid 1980s, operated as a satellite station of Torquay CFA, from which Torquay firefighters could respond more efficiently from the western edge of town.
The old shed served the western boundary of Torquay well but today, with population and residential growth, it is time for an upgrade. In an update on the new station released yesterday, the CFA says the upgraded facility is expected to be a big improvement for the area. It features two large engine bays, changing area, meeting room and toilet/shower facilities, and would enable the communities of Bellbrae and Bells Beach to operate their own stand-alone fire station if they choose. Residents of the area have been invited to gather
at the new station at 80 School Road, Bellbrae on July 29 at 7pm for a meeting to vote on whether to start a stand-alone fire brigade in the town. The meeting will be chaired by CFA district seven operations manager Gerry Verdoorn, and will be attended by Surf Coast mayor Libby Coker, captain Phil Campbell from the Torquay brigade, and Torquay brigade members who live in the Bellbrae area. For more information on joining the Bellbrae or Torquay brigades, phone Phil Campbell on 0414 614 577 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

news Have your say on Erskine River precinct plan 06
Tuesday 16 July 2013
BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Great Ocean Road Coastal Committee (GORCC) is seeking feedback on a paper outlining the possibilities and challenges for the Erskine River precinct. A master plan for the area, which includes each side of the river from its mouth to the sea upstream to the old Lorne quarry, is being created to guide the future management of the precinct. The master plan does not include the river itself or its water quality as that is not within GORCC’s responsibility. As part of the second stage of community consultation, GORCC ran two listening post events in Lorne earlier this month and released an Issues and Opportunities Summary for comment. Issues flagged in the paper include:
• Using the car park near the GORCC depot as a small market site or for art stalls • An extension to the supermarket • Pedestrian and vehicle conflicts and confusion along Erskine Avenue, which is not a defined road reserve • Poor signage and limited space at the entrance to the Erskine River Caravan Park office • Adding a Great Ocean Road heritage room to the visitor information centre, which is the thirdbusiest in Victoria. Information gathered in the second stage of community consultation will be used to create the draft master plan, which will be released to the public in August or September. Anyone interested in the paper can download a copy or fill out a survey, both available at gorcc.com.au. The survey closes at midnight on July 28.

Hear from Parkin before the game BY JAMES TAYLOR
Paramedics work on a surfer who fell unconscious while in the water at Bells Beach on Tuesday. INSET: Bella Wilson spotted the man in trouble and helped get him to the beach.
Surfer dies after collapsing at Bells BY TIFFANY PILCHER A MAN has died after suffering a suspected heart attack while surfing at Bells Beach last week. The 56-year-old Grovedale man was pulled to the beach by a local surfer last Tuesday, where an off-duty paramedic performed CPR. He was then airlifted to Geelong Hospital but later died. Jan Juc surfer Damian Wilson was out at Bells Beach with his 10-year-old daughter Bella
when she noticed the man in trouble. “She watched him on a wave and he seemed to fall off the front end, when we saw him again he was upside down,” Mr Wilson said. The experienced surfer used his knowledge of the currents to paddle the man out of the water as quickly as possible, but the man was unconscious by the time they reached the shore. Mr Wilson said Bella was coping well after witnessing the incident.
“I told her to get back in the water straight away while people were still working on him – I didn’t think she needed to see someone in such a bad way. “It was all a bit scary but we’ve had a good chat about it and she knows we all did the best we could.” This is the second recent serious incident in the area, with a 56-year-old woman suffering serious head and leg injuries after falling from a cliff at Point Addis two weeks ago.
A PIECE of art celebrating Carlton’s back-to-back flags in the VFL will go under the hammer on Saturday, and the man who coached those sides to victory will be there to sign it. Four-time premiership coach David Parkin will be the special guest at the Before the Game function at the Torquay Football Club, ahead of the Tigers’ home game clash against Anglesea. He has not seen the print – in it, he is holding the cup with Blues captain Mike Fitzpatrick – but appreciates the effort by artist Jamie Cooper. “I coached Jamie at Fitzroy, he’s a much better painter than he was a footballer,” he joked. Parkin said the 1981 and 1982 Carlton teams could be counted among the best. “They’re one of the teams that are never mentioned in the same breath as the great Melbourne or Hawthorn sides, even though they won three premierships in four years. They were a very close group, and still are today – in fact, we had a dinner last Tuesday.” As well as the Twenty Together print, memorabilia to be auctioned includes: • A framed Hawthorn jumper, signed by Luke Hodge • A framed Geelong jumper, signed by Steve Johnson • An official Mike Tyson signed boxing glove • A 50 Years of Bells Beach print, signed by Joel Parkinson • A framed print celebrating all of Black Caviar’s wins, signed by Peter Moody and Luke Nolan • A framed ‘Black Caviar Three Peat VRC Lighting Stakes’ photo display Before the Bounce will be held at the Torquay Football Club social rooms, Spring Creek Reserve, Torquay from 11.30am-2pm on Saturday. Tickets are $50, and include gate entry, speakers and a light lunch. Drinks at bar prices. Pre-sold tickets only, as numbers are strictly limited. For more phone Tim Carson on 0434 690 930, Luke Hayward on 0418 165 010, Jimmy Humphrey on 0407 614 247 or John McMahon on 0400 866 634.

This week our hearts have continued to be with the Tutungi (Tully) family as on Tuesday it was announced that as a result of the horriﬁc spinal injuries suffered by Casey 3 weeks ago, he is now a quadriplegic. The announcement was made in the most difﬁcult of circumstances by his father Chris, at a press conference at the Austin Hospital this week. A fund has been set up for Casey, the “Casey Tutungi Future Fund”, and we are hoping that signiﬁcant contributions will assist Casey to meet the demands of what is going to be an extremely long and expensive medical process. We have been heavily involved with meetings, committees and discussions to help co-ordinate future fund-raising activities and functions over the coming weeks. It is important that we work together and combine our resources to maximize all of the generous offers of support we are getting. Representatives from our group have met with both Frank Costa and Brian Cook from the Geelong Football Club who have offered all their signiﬁcant resources at Geelong to support both South Barwon and Lorne Football Club as we look at co-ordinating these events. Ben Waller from Geelong VFL and his team will be helping facilitate and organize events moving forward. The Geelong Football Club playing group is also looking to be heavily involved and is currently investigating avenues to assist Casey further. After discussions with Region General Manager, AFL Barwon Lee Hartman, Lee and the AFL are looking at co-ordinating a fundraising weekend to enable all local and hopefully state-wide football and netball clubs to contribute. We believe this will give all clubs an opportunity to show their support for Casey as well as add much needed funding. There has been an overwhelming amount of support and assistance offered not only from within the South Barwon and Lorne communities but Australia-wide from clubs wanting to fund-raise for Casey and we see this weekend a great opportunity to allow clubs to show their support. Information regarding the Casey Tutungi Future Fund can be obtained from www.caseytutungi.com and in the meantime if you wish to donate, all funds are being held in a Bendigo Bank Trust Account. Donations can be paid directly into the Bendigo Bank Trust account at a Bendigo Bank Branch or through your own netbank. Account Name: Casey Tutungi Future Fund BSB: 633 000 Account: 149 834 533. Thank you and our thoughts and love are all with Casey and his family.
MOVING TO LORNE
The Mullens Our ﬁrst view of Lorne was between gloomy skies and stormy seas as we travelled along the Great Ocean Road. A trick of the light created a slice of rainbow, hovering just above the ocean, with the Lorne coastline in the background. Awed, we fell in love. We moved to Lorne from Ireland, in late 2011 - in the proverbial “calm before the storm” of summer. We have travelled throughout Europe, the US, Southeast Asia, and most recently, parts of South America. We felt there was only one way to see Australia properly – and that was to live “down under” for a year. We quickly opted for Lorne; nearly two years later, we’re not ready to leave just yet. We embraced change on a grand scale – uprooting from the other side of the globe and relocating in Australia; from the innercity to a small coastal town; from working from dawn to dusk, to establishing a happier work/life balance. With the added advantage of bringing our two small boys to one dream of all kids (big and small) – seaside living! As a General Practitioner (GP), Dave is proud to be a part of the Lorne Medical Centre and the Lorne Community Hospital, which offer innovative services to the community, 24/7, 365 days/year. A range of allied health professionals are available on-site, and there are excellent supports and services in place for aged care and care in the home. Dave is a GP Supervisor with the Southern GP Training Programme and with the Victorian Metropolitan Alliance. He also trained in Emergency Medicine, and welcomes the extra challenge of the Lorne Community Hospital Urgent Care Service. Siobhán is an Assistant Professor with the University of Dublin, Trinity College, where she is chief investigator on a multinational project on patient safety in radiation oncology. She has represented European Radiation Therapists on several standing committees of the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO), was Course Director of ESTRO education courses, and editor of the RTT section of the ESTRO Newsletter. She
is a member of the Technical Group for Radiation Safety of the World Health Organisation in Geneva. In Australia, she chaired a national committee which established the ﬁrst Australasian short course on Patient Safety in Radiation Oncology (2012). Working remotely from Lorne, she is attached to Monash University for research, and the Epworth Hospitals for clinical work. We have made sacriﬁces; we miss our friends and families, but really appreciate their visits here and our visits to Ireland. Our older son (age 5) is thriving in the school in Lorne (P-12), where he is just one of eleven Preps, and our younger son (age 3) loves attending the daycare and preKinder services. Sport is hailed as being unifying across boundaries, and we meet many “internationals” and some Ozzies during our weekly soccer games, where naturally friendly rivalries ﬂourish! We also take advantage of Lorne’s open spaces and play Irish sports too – Dave plays “hurling” (Europe’s oldest ﬁeld game), whilst Siobhán plays gaelic football. Our boys can participate in the many local sports programmes on offer, whilst glorious summer days are happily spent at the beach. We were readily welcomed into the community, and have settled in quickly, participating as much as we can in football/soccer, yoga, surﬁng, snorkelling, cycling, singing, martial arts, volunteering, committees, workshops . . . to name but a few! It is lovely to walk down Mountjoy Parade and be greeted by so many friendly faces. Rain or shine, we are never short of something to do, with so much right on our doorstep, easy to access, and welcoming. Perhaps those who have been similarly entranced by Lorne might agree with posting a warning sign near the iconic Swing Bridge: “Beware… you are passing a Point of No Return!”
COMMUNITY PROFILE I started coming to Lorne when I was one after my parents bought a holiday house here. As a teenager I worked at the Pancake Parlour, now the Cuda Bar and Ocean Girl. I moved here permanently in my early 20’s to be with Neil McFee, my husband. I was the Director of the Lorne Kindergarten for 3 years until starting a family. We have two children, Emma 14 and Matthew 11, who both attend the local school. I started an internet based business called Organise Your Life in 1999 selling an interactive Home Based Organiser full of ready-made lists. My other passion is natural health and wellbeing, Directing a 6-part documentary on Mind|Body Medicine which aired on Ch31 and writing an eBook on the topic. I also help my husband with his business Surf Coast Scaffolding. I was involved with the Fig Tree Community House for several years, on the Committee and as a volunteer and set up the Lorne Occasional Child Care Centre. I was on the Friends of Lorne Committee for a few years and helped put together the Lorne 3232 folders with Carol Baker, whose wonderful idea it was. At the moment I am donating my time to help with PR to increase public awareness about the beneﬁts of hemp foods (nondrug!), which are extremely healthy and readily available in almost every other country in the world apart from Australia. I love the relaxed lifestyle of Lorne and being able to work ﬂexible hours from home centred around our children. I love being surrounded by nature and never tire of the ocean views we are so lucky to have at our doorstep.

A BIG crowd had an extravagant weekend of food, wine, beer and cider from Geelong and surrounds. The inaugural Extravaganza – Eat Drink Discover Geelong event began with a dinner for more than 130 people on Saturday night at Geelong restaurant Baveras. It continued on Sunday at The Pier with a showcase by business from the Surf Coast, the Bellarine Peninsula, along the Great Ocean Road and beyond. About 2,000 people enjoyed an abundance of local delights, food personalities, tastes and smells. The master class series was a sell out with the Extravaganza wine panel kept busy with questions and comments about the 18 wines tasted throughout the day. The Little Creatures master class capped off the day, with class members gaining an insight into brewing methods, styles and the plans for the Geelong site. Poh’s Kitchen Corner stage had patrons enthralled all day with conversation, cooking demonstrations and local food identities. Poh Yeow learned much about the region and left with newfound knowledge and insight into the variety and quality of the Geelong region. Extravaganza committee member Penny Whitehead said organisers were delighted with the support for the first event from not only the food, wine and hospitality industry, but also the public attendance on a cold winter’s day. “I think patrons were surprised and amazed as they entered the room and left feeling proud and excited about our region’s offering. “The committee was very pleased with the outcome of the day and we will be back in 2014.”

Petition opposes 99-year park leases BY JAMES TAYLOR THE federal government has weighed into the debate about development in Victoria’s national parks, with Corangamite Federal MP Darren Cheeseman launching a petition against the granting of 99-year leases. As reported in last week’s Surf Coast Times, legislation to extend leases in the parks from 50 to 99 years has been passed by the state government, which says the measure will encourage ecotourism. Mr Cheeseman, who began mailing the petitions last week, said he was worried about the effects of the extension on the Great Otways National Park. “Tireless hours have been spent preserving and restoring this landscape. All this work is under threat as the state Liberal government has decided to give property developers 99-year leases in the Otways. “This opens the way for the white shoe brigade to be lobbying Spring Street to hand over the best sites in the Great Otway National Park.” He said it was a major backwards step for conservation and the environment. “I am concerned that there are plans for a hotel overshadowing Bells Beach. “Such a location would be prized by the white shoe brigade, and with the legislation passed, the minister (for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith) has the power to grant such a lease tomorrow. “A private developer would want to bulldoze roads, build intrusive buildings, cut down trees and undo years of work to help restore native animal populations. “No doubt these developers will want the best
pristine views of our magnificent beaches and leave the community with a massive blight on our landscape. “Our parks were not created to end up as building sites for hotels and large scale infrastructure that can only be used by a privileged few who can afford it.” He said “the door was wide open” for Mr Smith to grant a 99-year lease without asking the community for feedback. “The guidelines for the minister’s decision consist of a number of vague guiding principles and outline a five- stage approval process, which includes weak provisions for community consultation. “In fact, they talk only about public notification of the outcome.” Mr Smith said the state government supports the idea of limited, sensible and sensitive ecotourism within strict guidelines.

Action against dangerous dogs welcomed BY JAMES TAYLOR COLAC Otway Shire Council has welcomed news that the state government is taking action against irresponsible dog owners. The shire wrote to Minister for Agriculture Peter Walsh earlier this year requesting more powers to take action against owners whose dogs attacked people or other animals. In January, the council prosecuted an Apollo Bay man whose staghound cross killed a Maltese Shitzu.
The prosecution was the latest in a string of dog offences for the Apollo Bay man, who had 23 prior convictions for dog related offences. Colac Otway chief executive officer Rob Small said the shire had not yet received official correspondence from the minister about how wide ranging the new laws would be. However, initial comments in the media indicate that owners convicted for their dog attacking others could be banned from owning a dog for
up to 10 years. Mr Small said the council was encouraged by the news. “Our request to the minister was based on promoting responsible animal ownership by preventing unsuitable people from having dogs under their control. “We look forward to receiving more information about the proposed changes.” In May, the council received a petition with 300 signatures from Apollo Bay residents
urging restrictions on the ownership of dangerous dogs. The shire then proposed limits to dog ownership based on property size, with a person on a quarter acre block having to apply for a permit if they wanted to have four or more dogs. Dangerous dog legislation was heavily tightened by the state government in 2011 after a four-year old was killed by a neighbour’s pit bull mastiff cross.
Stand up and be counted at the election BY JAMES TAYLOR YOUTH organisations from across the country have come together to support a new youth enrolment initiative called Count Me In. The project was launched on Tuesday of last week, and has the goal of seeing thousands more young Australians enrolled and voting in this year’s federal election. In the lead up to the federal election later this year, almost half a million young Australians are not enrolled to vote. About 43 per cent of 18 and 19-year olds are disenfranchised. Count Me In says the electoral significance of this number is huge and with the youth vote already being courted by new Labour leader Kevin Rudd, it could play an important role at the polls.
Increasing the numbers of young people on the electoral roll has become a much simpler process, with online enrolment being launched by the Australian Electoral Commission for the first time this year. Count Me In will provide support to young people to ensure they have everything they need to enrol and vote, including prompts and opportunities to engage at a deeper level with the issues they care about. Australia’s 2013 United Nations Youth Representative, Adam Pulford, is working closely with Count Me In to ensure the young people he reaches are enrolled and engaged in the political process. “Being an election year, there are more opportunities than ever for young people to take action on the issues they care about,” he said. “I’ve met with thousands of young people
from communities all over Australia and the resounding message I hear is that they want to see action taken on real issues, such as same sex marriage, global poverty and climate change. “Young people need to make sure they are enrolled now so they can vote for the candidates and leaders that best take action on the issues important to them this election.” Other youth organisations taking part in Count Me In include the Australian Youth Climate Coalition and the Oaktree Foundation. To receive updates and reminders about enrolling and the election, sign up at countmein.org.au. Adam Pulford is encouraging young people to enrol to vote at the coming election.

New market a massive hit BY TIFFANY PILCHER A CROWD of shoppers came out of winter hibernation for the inaugural Surf Coast Art and Design Market at Peppers The Sands Resort on Sunday. More than 2,000 people came to hunt through stalls filled with art, home wares, jewellery, clothing, children’s products and more. Imogen Brough and acoustic band Trilogy were also on hand to entertain the masses by the open fire. Organiser Vicki Penrice said the event far exceeded expectations. “It was such a great mix with the live music, having so many people there and the positive reaction from the stallholders. “Imogen and Trilogy were absolutely fantastic
Council wants refund on levy costs BY JAMES TAYLOR THE City of Greater Geelong says it has racked up a $38,000 bill in collecting the new Fire Services Property Levy (FSPL) and wants a refund from the state government. The levy, which came into effect on July 1, replaces a levy collected through individual property insurance. The council’s finance portfolio holder Cr Stretch Kontelj said as the state government had instructed local councils to collect the levy on its behalf, the council would seek reimbursement for costs. “As a result of the change, residents will see the state government Fire Services Property Levy as an itemised amount on this year’s rates notice. “Funds collected through the levy will go directly to the state government but in processing the payments and communicating the changes to the community, the council has incurred costs. It’s these costs we’ll be seeking to recover from the state government.” The council will make a submission showing actual expenditure incurred in implementing the legislation, presently estimated at $38,000. Cr Kontelj said the new state legislation meant land owned or controlled by the council would also attract an FSPL. “The estimated total levy council will be required to pay is $400,000.” The levy was introduced by the state government following the recommendation of the Bushfires Royal Commission. It comprises a fixed amount of $100 for residential properties and $200 for non-residential properties plus a variable component based on the land use classification of the property. A $50 concession will be available for pensioner concession and Veteran Affairs Gold Card holders. The City of Greater Geelong wrote to ratepayers in June advising them of the estimated fire services levy amount for their property. For more information, including a fire services levy calculator, head to firelevy.vic.gov.au.
Battling bands wanted for musical competition APPLICATIONS are now open for musicians who would like to strut their stuff in the FReeZA Push Start – Battle of the Bands competition in Colac Otway Shire and Surf Coast. The annual competition has been a turning point for local talent over the years, and shire events officer Vicki Jeffrey said she was looking forward to see who would take part this year. “The date for Battle of the Bands is set for Friday, August 23, at COPACC, so if you are in a band and you would like to launch into your music future, then I encourage you to contact me or collect an application form from our shire offices in Colac and Apollo Bay.

and the stallholders added so much, we’re exhausted now but it was a really wonderful day.” Ms Penrice said everyone who came and was involved added to the success of the day and she was looking forward to planning the next one. “It was such a positive experience and we were blown away with how well people embraced it. “The Sands also did such a great job of hosting the event, their staff were unbelievable. “So many people said they thought it was a really great event for Torquay. “We’re not sure exactly when the next one will be, but it will happen!” Kate Done tests out a necklace from the Merriang Collection by Pamela O’Donnell (centre) at the Surf Coast Art and Design Market on Sunday.

Push to buckle down on bus seat belts sooner BY JAMES TAYLOR ALL new school buses in Victoria will have seat belts, but a leading law firm has raised concerns that it will take two decades for the state government to fully implement its plan. Last week, Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder said between 80 and 90 of Victoria’s 1,600 school buses would be replaced each year with buses equipped with seat belts. At that rate, it will take between 18-20 years to put seat belts in every bus. Slater and Gordon lawyer Craig Lynch – who runs
the firm’s Victorian motor vehicle accident practice – welcomed the news but said he was concerned the scheme would take too long. “This is a step in the right direction but we have concerns around the time frames given it is Victorian school children whose safety is at risk.” He said the state’s school buses in regional areas regularly travelled at 100 kilometres per hour but were exempt from federal safety standards requiring all buses built after 1995 to have seat belts. “The idea that regional Victorian students will still be travelling to school on the state’s highways without wearing seat belts in 2030 does not make

sense, especially given they were made compulsory in Victorian cars in 1964. “Kids are taught from a young age to put on their seat belts as soon as they get in a car, yet the vehicles that take these kids to school are not even required to have them fitted.” Mr Lynch said there had been numerous cases of Victorian school children seriously injured in buses going to and from school, and an interstate accident involving a school bus claimed the life of a nineyear old boy last year. Slater and Gordon has been campaigning for school buses to be retrofitted with seat belts for several years.
“There will always be those who cite the cost of retrofitting as the reason why school kids should continue to be unrestrained in older school buses but that argument is purely about putting money over safety,” Mr Lynch said. Mr Mulder said the state government’s decision followed a report by Public Transport Victoria (PTV). “I have asked PTV to carefully consider the findings of the new report and identify implementation options in the coming months. “It is too early to identify specific routes or outline an implementation plan.”

The Climate Commission’s Will Stephen and admiral Chris Barrie together recently launched the recent Climate Report. Admiral Barrie believes there is a one in two chance that there won’t be any human beings left on this planet by 2,100. The alarmist approach to the alleged impending apocalypse appears designed to scare the populace into accepting a very pessimistic interpretation of climate science. For the past three decades environmental alarmists have been repeating ad nauseum their mantras of “the science is done and dusted”, “the overwhelming majority of scientists support global warming”, and “the time for debate is over. What’s needed is solutions to the greatest challenge of the century”. None of these assertions are true. A person couldn’t get a degree in climate science until recent times, so the science can’t be “done and dusted”. Scientific knowledge is a journey, not a destination. Leading alarmists like Dr James Hansen admit there is still much we don’t know about the climate. The alarmist predictions made over thirty years ago have not materialised. In the past 16 years temperatures have gone sideways despite the massive rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide. Coastlines are not flooding, ice caps are not melting, extreme weather events have decreased – not increased – as erroneously reported by the Climate Commission. And polar bear numbers are thriving. Billions is being squandered on mitigating carbon emissions and in meeting renewable energy targets. With this kind of money, we could have raised every human being on the face of the planet above poverty, disease, hunger and homelessness. How about we get the science right first before trashing the global economy? After all, that’s what the precautionary principle says to do.
to be put, at some future date, to the electors on recognising local councils reports on comments by Surf Coast Council and the City of Greater Geelong, both of which use spurious and facile arguments to support the proposition. The advocates’ reason for the change is based on a recent High Court case, which ruled the direct funding of chaplains by the federal government was unconstitutional. This verdict appears to also suggest that the existing practice of the federal government to “cherry pick” councils and bypass state governments and directly fund a local government project is also unconstitutional. If the High Court case holds true for all direct funding, then all past payments to local councils were and are unconstitutional. For the two councils to assert that we should formalise by a referendum something that is unconstitutional without a proper debate is an insult to the electors. The framers of Australia’s Constitution did not see it appropriate to allow local councils to be recognised as a tier of the Constitution. Rather, the founders saw that the responsibility for the oversight, funding and governance of local councils is best done by state governments. Over time, electors have witnessed the explosion of councils and councillors. Presently there are some 560 local government authorities overseen by some 6,600 councillors. For some political parties, like the Greens and the Australian Labour Party, local government is seen as the training ground for future state and federal parliamentary hopefuls. The recent spate of ALP preselecting procedures shows many Labour leaning mayors putting their hands up as pre-selection candidates for the ALP. Readers will recall the somewhat infamous matter of the “Ros Kelly Whiteboard”, whereby the thenminister selected only Labour councils for special funding rather than funding state governments and allowing the due process of that tier of government to take up the allocation task. Deputy Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, who has carriage of the referendum, has determined that for all intents and purposes to “run roughshod” over the electors and ensure the “yes” vote gets up. He has planned this outcome by allocating, out of the $50 million budget for the referendum, only $500,000 for the “no” vote! The late Sir Robert Menzies counselled electors
when considering how to vote on a change to the Constitution as follows – “When in doubt, chuck it out.” Given there is no meaningful funding for a proper debate, I encourage readers of the Times to heed Sir Robert’s advice and vote “no”. John Woods Drysdale
Congratulations to Peter for his OAM Dear Editor, Good to see Bellarine Historical Society member Dr Peter Munster recently recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list with an award of the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for his painstaking research and documentation of the history of St Leonards. Peter has published several books and papers including the following, all of which are available from the Bellarine Historical Society: • Little of Interest? A History of St Leonards • George Ward Cole and the Founding of St Leonards • Putting Batman and Buckley on the map of St Leonards • Remembering Our Anzacs: World War 1 soldiers from St Leonards and Indented Head • When The Circus Came To Town: A Story of Holden Bros Circus. He has also been instrumental in establishing the now accepted fact that when John Batman’s party landed in 1835 they established camp at St Leonards, not at Indented Head as previously believed. This confusion was apparently due to the fact that the whole of the Bellarine Peninsula (including the area now known as St Leonards) was originally named Indented Head by Matthew Flinders after he arrived in Port Phillip Bay in 1802. Peter has also, with the assistance from the City of Greater Geelong, created the labyrinth on the St Leonards foreshore within Harvey Park, to commemorate the Batman landing and the extraordinary reappearance of William Buckley.

THE City of Greater Geelong is asking members of the community if they are interested in helping shape the city’s disability policy. Expressions of interest are now open for the council’s Disability Advisory Committee. Community Development portfolio councillor Kylie Fisher said the council was looking for people to take on advisory roles to represent the needs of
Advisory Committee provides to council is a much valued resource in planning and improving services. “We’re recruiting people with lived experience of disability, carers or disability sector professionals who are able to commit to a once a month meeting for a two year period.” She thanked the committee’s outgoing members for their contribution over the last two years. The Disability Advisory Committee meets at 5.30pm on the second Monday of every month. The committee already has 10 community
members and is chaired by Cr Fisher. Council officers attend committee meetings to support the process.

Government grants keep Colac Otway rates down BY JAMES TAYLOR AN UNEXPECTED increase in government grants have allowed Colac Otway Shire Council to keep rates and charges rises in its budget about one per cent lower than originally forecast. The 2013-14 budget will result in an average rates and charges bill of $1694 – 2.08 per week more than the previous financial year. Colac Otway mayor Lyn Russell said this year’s budget – which has a 6.8 per cent rate rise – was focussed on core business, with very few frills. “This budget will enable us to maintain our infrastructure renewal gap,” she said. “We’re spending $13.3 million on capital works this financial year which includes $9.8 million for replacement of existing assets. We will spend $1 million on bridges, $4.5 million on the road network, $900,000 on buildings and $400,000 on footpaths. “Thanks to a state government grant, we will also be replacing the dredge at the port of Apollo Bay, at a
cost of $3.1 million.” Cr Russell said a larger than expected $3.18 million superannuation call in 2012-13, along with a $100,000 bill for the state government’s fire services levy, had affected this year’s budget. However, she said there were still several exciting projects the community could look forward to in the coming year. “The Bluewater Fitness Centre redevelopment will begin later this year, as well as the commencement of the Colac central business district and entrances project. We’ll be working with Colac Secondary College on the conversion of the former school site into a sports field, and working with the Colac Aerodrome Committee on a business plan for the future development of their facility.” The council will borrow $420,000 to fund energy efficiency projects to reduce the long term costs to the community for municipal assets. Overall debt levels will reduce from $4.97 million The extra grant funding for Colac Otway Shire includes money to replace the Apollo Bay dredge. in 2012-13 to $4.92 million in 2013-14.

Join the 100 Club stay safe on roads BY JAMES TAYLOR
Terry Mulder and Victoria Police assistant commissioner Robert Hill launch the 100 Club campaign last week.
Victorians work together towards lowering the toll BY JAMES TAYLOR
A regional partnership with TAC and the Victorian Government Maintain vigilance about road safety. (Rural Vic Toll YTD) The above figures represent regional Victoria’s road toll.
THE Victorian community’s road safety efforts have resulted in a 19 per cent drop in the road toll for the first six months of the year. According to the latest statistics from the Transport Accident Commission (TAC), there were 113 deaths in the six months to midnight on June 30. The rolling 12-month road toll – from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013 – is 256, compared to 269 the previous year. The last two months have also seen the lowest May and June road tolls on record, with 18 and 14 fatalities respectively. TAC acting chief executive officer Joe Calafiore commended Victorians for their efforts in reducing the road toll, but said it was an incentive to stay committed to road safety. “There are still today about 113 families who
have lost a loved one on the roads this year and thousands more people who have been injured.” It has been three months since the state government launched its Road Safety Strategy with road safety partners the TAC, VicRoads, Victoria Police and the Department of Justice. Mr Calafiore said one of the key actions in the road safety strategy was to help make young drivers safer by making parents and guardians more aware of their role in modelling positive driving behaviour. “As revealed earlier this month, the TAC and VicRoads are working together to address these elements of the strategy by creating a parental influence campaign. The campaign, now in development phase, aims to encourage parents to stay involved in the first three to six months of solo driving, by taking actions to keep their kids safe.” It is expected to be launched later this year.
THE state government and its road safety agencies are urging young drivers to embrace technology to help them avoid speeding and to stay safe on the roads. Minister for Roads Terry Mulder has launched a new campaign to raise awareness of the potential road safety benefits of installing GPS units with Intelligent Speed Assist (ISA) technology, which alerts drivers when they exceed the speed limit. Research released last week by the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) shows younger drivers are less likely to believe they have a high chance of being caught if they speed, compared with other motorists. To help young drivers stay within the speed limit, VicRoads is giving away 100 GPS devices with ISA technology through a Facebook competition called the 100 Club. Winners will be asked to provide feedback on whether the device helped them stick to the speed limit. “We are keen to hear the views of young drivers about speed alerts and whether they make a difference to their behaviour and attitudes to speeding,” Mr Mulder said. “This will help VicRoads develop policies around ISA technology which is one of the key initiatives in Victoria’s Road Safety Strategy and Action Plan.” VicRoads director of vehicle and road use policy James Holgate said studies in Victoria, New South Wales and overseas suggested there were potential road safety benefits from using ISA alert devices, although further research is needed. “The 100 Club campaign will enable VicRoads to hear first-hand the attitudes and experiences of young drivers in using the GPS devices.” The TAC’s Road Safety Monitor, which measures drivers’ attitudes, found that young drivers were less likely to believe they would be caught speeding (61 per cent compared with 70 per cent of all drivers) and less likely to believe that enforcement of the speed limit helps lower the road toll (68 per cent compared with 77 per cent of all drivers). TAC road safety manager Samantha Cockfield said it was up to all road users to set a good example for new drivers. Head to facebook.com/100ClubVic to enter the competition.

Fly a balloon to help the children BY JAMES TAYLOR THE countdown has begun for people to raise awareness and funds for children in need in the leadup to this yearâ€™s White Balloon. As of today, there are 51 days until the national event, which was officially launched last week. Registrations are now open for schools, councils and organisations in the region to join the initiative. People have been encouraged to show their support and help Bravehearts to make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child by participating in local White Balloon Day events, or
registering themselves as volunteers. Government research shows one in five Australian children will be sexually assaulted before their 18th birthday. In 85 per cent of cases, the offender is known to the child and is a relative or a trusted friend. Funds raised on White Balloon Day will go towards education, prevention and counselling programs. Bravehearts founder and executive director Hetty Johnston said the day was a symbol of hope for survivors. â€œWhite Balloon Day is about encouraging kids to
come forward and break the silence, while we raise the necessary funds to ensure vital support networks and programs can continue. â€œSilence, secrecy and shame are the sex offenderâ€™s best friends and the childâ€™s worst enemies. â€œWe are asking the community to help us raise money to make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child. â€œItâ€™s about educating, empowering and protecting our children and their futures. She said unless victims come forward, many other children remain targets for paedophiles.
â€œThe truth is that it is only the victims who know who the offenders are. â€œPaedophiles never offend only against one child, or just once. â€œWe are relying on victims to tell us who the offenders are so we can protect todayâ€™s children from the same fate. â€œWe are winning the battle one child at a time, but thereâ€™s still a long way to go.â€? She said supporting White Balloon Day could be as simple as tying a white balloon to a letterbox. For more information, head to whiteballoonday.com.au.
Beware of tax rebate scams BY JAMES TAYLOR HUNDREDS of people were involved in tax rebate scams last year, and the state government has urged people to be aware of similar ruses during the new financial year. Rebate scams often involve the scammer posing as a government department, bank or community organisation in an effort to defraud money from their victim. One trick is for scammers to pose as a government representative, calling to tell the consumer that money has been made available to them under federal budget changes to superannuation. Consumer Affairs Victoria received more than 630 reports of rebate or reclaim scams during 2012. Minister for Consumer Affairs Heidi Victoria said scammers were claiming to be from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) in order to trick people into handing over money by promising a tax refund once a claim fee is paid. â€œBe wary of offers that promise you some kind of reward, only after you have provided payment or personal information.
â€œChances are you wonâ€™t get the promised reward.â€? Consumer Affairs Victoria recommends people should always be on the alert as scams continue to become more sophisticated, with some scammers using fake letterheads, logos and genuinelooking websites to deceive consumers. The stateâ€™s consumer affairs regulator has suggested a few steps to help protect themselves: â€˘ If a consumer is unsure if a request is legitimate, then they should call the organisation using contact details from legitimate sources, rather than the contact details provided in an email or text message â€˘ Consumers should not reply or click on any links or open any attachments provided in these emails â€˘ Consumers should remember that the ATO and other legitimate bodies and companies will not ask for personal details via email. People who believe they have been scammed should report the matter to Consumer Affairs Victoria by heading to consumer.vic.gov.au or phoning 1300 558 181.

City council to assess overseas job sponsorships BY JAMES TAYLOR THE City of Greater Geelong is now the point of call for businesses in the region that are looking to sponsor skilled overseas professionals. The Geelong Regional Certifying Body (RCB) will operate as a service to employers in Geelong, the Surf Coast Shire and the Borough of Queenscliffe who have critical skill shortages that cannot be filled from the local labour market. The RCB will ensure employers with genuine skill shortages have access to the limited Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme Visa. The Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) allows employers in Australia’s regional areas to sponsor employees who are foreign nationals for a permanent visa to work here. The City of Greater Geelong will assess employer applications and provide the federal government with details, including: • There is a genuine need for the employer to employ someone to work in the position • The position cannot be filled by an Australian citizen or an Australian permanent resident who is living in the same local area • The business is located with the city’s
designated area of authority. As of last October, some of the skill shortages in the Geelong region included sonographer, civil engineer, diesel mechanic and wood doctor positions. Enterprise Geelong portfolio holder Cr Bruce Harwood said the council had been working closely with the state and federal government for a number of years to provide assistance to employers dealing with genuine skills shortages. “Our economic development unit has established links to a range of marketing opportunities and global sourcing strategies. “This new role as an RCB will enable us to provide even more practical support for local businesses. “The RSMS is a vital service for many businesses that are struggling with genuine skills shortages that are negatively impacting on their day to day operations. “We look forward to assisting businesses applying to participate in the scheme.” To find out more about applying for an RCB assessment through the Geelong RCB, head to geelongaustralia.com.au/business/migration and click the RCB tab.

Council surveys parents on childcare BY JAMES TAYLOR COLAC Otway Shire has released a questionnaire to seek parents’ views about how well the council’s maternal and child health services are performing. Shire maternal and child health coordinator Jane Bear said the questionnaire – which is available online and in hard copy format – touched on everything from making appointments, facilities at maternal and child health centres and the level of parent satisfaction with the care they received from maternal and child health nurses. “The maternal and child health team have roadtested the questionnaire with families to make sure it is quick and easy to complete.
“Parents will be able to tell us what we are doing well and how they believe we could do things better. “The first five years of a child’s life is pivotal to their future health and wellbeing, and we believe a strong partnership between parents and a maternal and child health service can make a huge difference to a child’s life.” Paper versions of the questionnaire will be available throughout July at the Colac and Apollo Bay libraries, Colac and Apollo Bay Maternal and Child Health Centres, and the council’s customer service centres in Colac and Apollo Bay.

Technique fixes teeth with invisible touch BY DR DEBORAH SYKES INVISIBLE braces have become a popular trend for orthodontic treatment where braces cannot be seen. This type of orthodontic treatment may be more desirable for patients who do not want braces to be seen. The invisible brace technology emerged due to a need to provide aesthetic tooth movement, without traditional brackets and bands. It is designed for fully erupted permanent teeth, using a series of
custom made plastic aligners. Align Technology uses a series of clear, rigid, polyurethane pressure formed aligners. The number of aligners depends on the complexity of cases (average 10-30 aligners per case). Case selection is important â€“ in other words, whether invisible braces are the right treatment for your type of crowding. There are advantages and disadvantages too, like cost and time involved. Each case is different. Dr Deborah Sykes can recommend

if the treatment would suit your needs. There are certain types of treatment that respond well to invisible aligners â€“ slight alignment and crowding, spacing, minor tipping and rotations, single tooth treatments. If your case is suitable, you would need to have radiographs, photographs and study models taken, and a treatment plan designed for your needs. Then a commitment to wearing the aligners would be required. The laboratory then produces a sequence of aligners, which are given to the patient.

Ethical firewood guide released BY JAMES TAYLOR A NEW consumer guide to help Victorians keep warm this winter with a clear conscience is aimed at people looking to buy environmentally sensitive firewood for use at home or in a business. The Sustainable Firewood Guide, produced by the Victorian National Parks Association (VNPA), was launched earlier this month “For the first time, consumers can now make an informed choice for the firewood they burn based on environmental impacts, particularly native habitat,”
VNPA spokesman Nick Roberts said. “There is more firewood burnt annually in Victoria than is exported for woodchips. Most of this wood comes from poorly managed state forests in Victoria and New South Wales.” The consumer guide looks at a number of firewood and firewood alternatives widely available in Victoria. It scores them against a number of criteria to assess which had the least impacts on forests and wildlife. “Most firewood sourced from native forests
comes from high conservation value River Red Gum forests in northern Victoria and New South Wales,” Mr Roberts said. “Even the very special box-ironbark forests in central Victoria are still used for firewood. “This wood removal impacts on threatened native mammals and birds such as the Brush-tailed Phascogale and Superb Parrot. “The product that scored the best in our analysis is produced sustainably on farms right here in Victoria. “Trees cut down are replaced, and the woodlots are planted in cleared land of low
environmental significance.” The guide was produced following an RMIT research report for the VNPA, which found overwhelming support in Melbourne for the use of sustainably produced firewood. “This research found that 80 per cent of pubs, bars and commercial users of firewood were in favour of using sustainable firewood, with 67 per cent of wood merchants interested in selling a sustainable product,” Mr Roberts said. To read or download the guide, head to firewoodguide.vnpa.org.au.
Join the big cake bake for charity BY JAMES TAYLOR PEOPLE have been encouraged to join TV chefs and media personalities in Australia’s biggest bake-off during August to help raise money for the Red Cross. Red Cross members, supporters, community groups, schools and everyday cooks will all be making a real difference for people in need – simply by cooking, sharing and enjoying delicious homemade treats as part of the Red Cross Big Cake Bake. TV actress Kate Ritchie is now in her third year with the annual event. “Big Cake Bake is a deliciously good reason to look forward to August,” she said. “Dig out your favourite recipes, get together with friends, family and eat lots of cake to support Red Cross and raise vital donations for disadvantaged people. I’ll be baking my buttery cinnamon tea cake to help bake the world a better place.” Adriano Zumbo became a household name on MasterChef with his now iconic croquembouche. “This August, I’ll be baking pomegranate Zumbarons and strawberry and bubblegum
cheesecakes to support Red Cross,” he said. “You can host your own Big Cake Bake event too, it’s so easy. I hope everyone will join me in the kitchen to raise donations for vulnerable people.” Noted Australian cook and 2010 Senior Australian of the Year Maggie Beer is also a big fan of the event. “Anything home baked and handmade has always been an ingrained, first line response to any hardship in our culture,” she said. “It makes sense to raise awareness in such a heartfelt way with the Australian Red Cross Big Cake Bake. “Please get involved any way you can. “Any one of us would dread to think where we might be without the incredible work of our Red Cross.” Alongside Maggie is fellow ABC cooking host Poh Ling Yeow, Malaysian-born Australian chef, celebrity artist and actress. “When it comes to cooking, baking is my first love,” Poh said. “There’s nothing like creaming, whisking, measuring precisely, that makes me feel like
everything in the world is okay. “For many the world is an uncertain one, so the prospect of giving these members of our community a bit of a break, through the Big Cake Bake brings me a huge amount of joy. “Even if you’re not much of a baker, wield that whisk like a warrior and see what a difference you can make. “Good luck!” The official Big Cake Bake day is August 26 but to make sure nobody misses out, events can be held anytime throughout August. To become a Big Cake Bake host, register at bigcakebake.org.au. The first 500 people to register will receive a complimentary baker’s pack with a Wiltshire Art Of Baking Cake board set, Wiltshire Art Of Baking large spoonula, a Cheesecake Shop blank sponge cake voucher, 750g packet of Bakels coloured icing and a special Big Cake Bake oven mitt.

MasterChef At The Heads ready to hit airwaves BY TIFFANY PILCHER EXCITEMENT surrounding MasterChef filming in Barwon Heads recently is set to boil over when the episode hits screens on Thursday July 25. To celebrate the occasion, At The Heads is hosting a special viewing event on the night, filled with fun, entertainment and of course lots of delicious food. Big screens will be set up to show the episode which features a master class segment filmed on location at the restaurant while the MasterChef team was in town to highlight the region’s finest local produce. Those who join the festivities will also enjoy a two course dinner, live music, a complimentary drink and canapés, local wine tastings and happy hour drink prices throughout the night. At The Heads event coordinator Laura Hill said the screening and dinner event was a wonderful opportunity to show off the restaurant and the region’s best local produce. “It’s going to be a fantastic night for all our locals and fans to come along and enjoy some delicious produce and to showcase what our chefs can do. “Local wine tastings and samples will be offered purely to get everyone thinking local and realise what we have on our back doorstep.” She said everyone at the restaurant was thrilled to host the filming of the show and they were particularly pleased with the inclusion of their kitchen team. “This was also a great experience for our staff, especially our chefs and kitchen team. “To watch chefs of this calibre at work was a very inspiring opportunity and our team was very excited to be able to speak to the cast and crew. “Hopefully after the airing it will entice even more people to the Bellarine Peninsula to see our beautiful venue and location.” Bookings for the special MasterChef viewing dinner on July 25 are available from 6pm.

G R A P E V I N E BROUGHT TO YOU BY
Author hits Aireys Pub for an incantation BY RACHEL DELANY
Once upon a time in the west THERE has been quite a bit of excitement of late as more and more of the 2011 West Australian reds â€“ those from Margaret River in particular â€“ are released onto the market, so I thought Iâ€™d have a quick look at some wines that have come my way and see what all the fuss is about. The vintage: 2011 â€“ Hailed as a MIGHTY year for Western Australian wines, reds in particular were of a very high standard as opposed to those from the cooler, wetter, damper regions in other states like Victoria, South Australia, and NSW. The region: Margaret River â€“ highly praised for its Cabernets, itâ€™s an amazing premium cool climate wine region with the strong maritime influence of the Indian Ocean ensuring relatively even temperatures, thus providing consistently good conditions for wine growing. The region is often likened to that of Bordeaux in France with its proximity to the ocean, and the well draining ironstone gravel soils. The variety: Cabernet Sauvignon â€“ As Iâ€™ve written here before, Cabernet Sauvignon is one very classy grape variety, one of the worldâ€™s most recognised. Itâ€™s small, thick-skinned and ripens late, yet is hardy and shows a consistency in character, producing rich wines noted for their firm powerful flavours, fine grippy tannins and trademark varietal complexity with tell tale blackcurrant/cassis flavours and mint/herb/ cedar/spice characters. Itâ€™s often blended with Merlot too to fill and flesh out the palate. Ok, now we know all that, hereâ€™s three beauties you should know about.
2011 Cullen Margaret River Red ($25) A new addition (I think) to one of my favourite Margaret River producers, the famous Cullen Winery, whose â€˜Diana Madelineâ€™ Cabernet Merlot is arguably one of Australiaâ€™s finest. Cullen are pioneers of sustainable viticulture, having been biodynamic for quite some time now, and these pure fruit qualities are all reflected in the resulting wines. This â€˜Bordeaux Blendâ€™ is soft and approachable with complex dark fruits on display and a whisker of savoury wild herb notes and fine-grained tannins.
2011 Snake and Herring Margaret River â€œDirty Bootsâ€? Cabernet Sauvignon ($25) Love the name of this wine â€“ â€œDirty Bootsâ€? attracted me straight away, and the eye-catching Monty Pythonesque label art too grabs your attention so weâ€™re off to a great start. But itâ€™s all about the wine obviously and the fun doesnâ€™t stop with the rich, juicy, vibrant, dark, fleshy Cabernet flavours all brimming and upfront on the nose and double time on the palate, with a racy acidity keeping it all fresh and structured... Love it, time to get dirty!
Elliot Perlman has written one short story collection and three novels.
GOLF MEMBERSHIPS PS S
A well-known label and wine that is always pretty consistent year in, year out and is good value for its price point. In certain vintages, when it all comes together, it can be good - very good, in fact. At first, the most obvious observation is the wineâ€™s colour â€“ a deep, dark purple/red. Then, the bouquet is all about fresh, vibrant scents of crushed berries, violet floral notes and a touch of cedar â€˜nâ€™ spice. The palate however, conjures up deep, rich blackcurrant fruit notes that arenâ€™t too weighty as the wine has evenness, and an overall balance that is quite a highlight, delivering a fine, lengthy finish. This is a wine to buy up on a few cases â€“ one to drink, and the other to try and put away for a few years... good luck!

Soul sisters swing into Queenscliff BY ALI DEANE WARM up with Soul Sister Swing next Saturday night as part of the blockbuster series of Café Style concerts at Queenscliff Uniting Church. Soul Sister Swing began entertaining friends and family in Torquay more than 20 years ago, and has evolved to become one of the region’s must see acts. Gail Lambert, the last of the originals, said when she started out singing with her girlfriends she thought they would get the occasional gig but quickly found they were in hot demand. Since the beginning harmonies have been
their passion, with songs from the Andrew Sisters, the Boswell Sisters and the big band era of the 1940s. Within a year they were performing on television and travelling throughout Australia presenting shows for corporate clients and service clubs, and as support for overseas artists. They’re still enjoying every gig. “I think it’s because we play popular songs that bring joy,” Ms Lambert said. “People get up and dance and we love the harmonies.” Joined by drummer Greg Gosbell, Hot Club Swing’s Rob Gador on bass and special guest keyboard player and singer Andy Pobjoy; Lambert, Gayle Burrill and
Linda Allen are preparing a night full of favourites. Soul Sister Swing’s enthusiasm and energy on stage is obvious and the group has a reputation for raising the roof. Guests can sit back and enjoy a three course meal, the bar will be open for wine and refreshments and bookings are being taken now for tables of eight. Soul Sister Swing plays at Queenscliff Uniting Church on July 27 from 6.30pm. To book, phone Heather on 5258 2854 or 0478 611 481, Kerrie and Charles on 5258 1986 or email unitingqueenscliff@ iinet.net.au. Tickets ($35 including meal) are also available at the information centre or on the door on the night.
Soul Sister Swing is anticipated to raise the roof at Queenscliff Uniting Church.
Top ballerinas jete into Geelong BY TIFFANY PILCHER
The Australian Ballet senior artist Amy Harris will be headlining The Dancers Company triple bill performance at GPAC this weekend.
A SELECTION of Australia’s most distinguished ballet dancers will perform some of the most loved ballets of all time as well as a playful new work in Geelong this weekend. The Dancers Company – the regional touring arm of The Australian Ballet – will present Swan Lake (act III), Paquita and Rimbombo at the Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) on Saturday. Featuring Tchaikovsky’s iconic score and the famous Black Swan pas des deux, the heartbreaking love story of Swan Lake is classical ballet at its very
best. Another ballet spectacular, Paquita is one of the cornerstones of traditional classical ballet and is the perfect opportunity for dancers to display their stunning technique. Rimbombo is the new work by The Australian Ballet ex-principal artist and former artistic director of West Australian Ballet, Simon Dow. The piece has been choreographed to showcase the athleticism and artistry of the company’s male dancers and light heartedly explores the masculine urge to compete and jostle for position. Budding ballerinas from grade six to advanced
level are also invited to take part in a special nonsyllabus class to be held before the performance by The Australian Ballet’s artistic staff. The triple bill performance will be at GPAC on July 20 at 7.30pm. Tickets are $52 for adults, $44 for concession, $34 for youth under 26 years and $25 for children 17 years and under and are available from gpac.org.au. The open class will be held in the same venue from 4.30pm to 6pm The cost is $27 per student and places are limited. To book visit australianballet.com.au or phone The Australian Ballet Box Office on 1300 369 741.

Ghostly midnight dreamlands at Potato Shed BY ALI DEANE RENOWNED actor Alex Pinder will treat audiences to two incredible stories by Rabindranath Tagore – In The Middle of the Night and Living or Dead – at The Potato Shed in Drysdale on Saturday night. Set in British Raj India, Pinder brings Rabindranath Tagore’s extraordinary talent to life in a humorous performance of stories of love, loss, guilt, grief, madness and desire. Tagore wrote thousands of poems, songs, stories and articles, and was the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. His stories are as poetic, powerful and compelling today as they were when originally written in the late 19th century. “You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water,” Tagore once wrote. Audiences can look forward to a fast paced and passionate adventure through India, and experience the ghostly midnight dreamland in this production. Pinder is regarded as an accomplished actor of stage and screen and a charismatic storyteller. In The Middle of the Night premiered at La Mama Theatre Melbourne in February and has been touring across Melbourne to great reviews. Head to geelongaustralia.com.au/potatoshed to get your tickets ($20, concession $15) or phone 5251 1998.

Bellarine lights up for film festival BY TIFFANY PILCHER QUEENSCLIFF is once again bringing the magic of the French Riviera to the Bellarine this winter with the international film festival, Bellarine Lighthouse Films. In only its second year, the program will be held over the weekend of July 2628, and showcase five carefully selected foreign art house films, alongside food and wine. • Le Havre is a charming, deadpan delight that shows how fate throws young African refugee Idrissa into the path of Marcel Marx, a bohemian shoe shiner. With innate optimism Marcel stands up to officials doggedly pursuing the boy for deportation. • Monsieur Lazhar is set in Montreal, where an elementary school teacher dies abruptly. Bachir Lazhar offers his services as a substitute teacher and finds himself in an establishment in crisis, while going through his own personal tragedy. • Once upon a time in Anatolia shows a group of men driving through the Anatolian countryside searching for the victim of a brutal murder. As the night draws on, details emerge and the investigators’ own secrets come to light. • Elena explores the dynamic between spouses Vladimir and Elena, who uneasily share his palatial Moscow apartment. When a sudden illness and unexpected reunion threaten the housewife’s potential inheritance, she must hatch
a desperate plan. • A Separation is a compelling drama about the dissolution of a marriage, set in contemporary Iran. Simin wants to leave Iran with her husband, Nader, and daughter, and sues for divorce when Nader refuses to leave behind his Alzheimersuffering father. When Nader hires a young
woman to assist with his father, he realises that there is more on the line than just his marriage. Bellarine Lighthouse Films will be at Queenscliff Town Hall, 50 Learmonth Street from July 26 to July 28. Passes are $65 and single session tickets are $15, available at the venue. For more information head to bellarinelighthousefilms.com.au.

Twilight with Camilleri and The Black Sorrows BY ALI DEANE AUSTRALIAN warrior of rock Joe Camilleri is looking forward to cruising down the Great Ocean Road for a dinner and show at Anglesea Golf Club this weekend, to launch the Roo Twilight Series. Camilleri will be joined by Claude Carranza and Mark Gray from The Black Sorrows for two nights of rock, R‘n’B and blues, and he said they planned to make a real night of it. Fresh from the sell out Time of My Life tour, Camilleri has been hard at work in the studio, recording for the soon to be released Man of Straw, a double album that will be pressed on vinyl with artwork by Victor Rubin. “I love the Great Ocean Road. It’s beautiful.
“Whether it’s Anglesea, Lorne or beyond, there are plenty of gigs out there. “Once on the way down to play a show, one of our cars came off the road, and ended up on an embankment – it’s funny now, but not then. “I love rock‘n’roll, but this will be a bit more intimate. We’ve added a keyboard player for these shows, and we all sing, so we get this nice kind of harmony thing going. We’ll be making sure people have a good time, and we’ll have fun.” The singer-songwriter,who has recorded more than 300 songs and plays 130-150 gigs per year, said if he’s not doing gigs he’ll have his head in a song. “I like to mix it up a little. Songs can be a bit more under the microscope at these shows, but you do your best, and hopefully get a really good vibe
going. We don’t come for drinks, we come to play.” Joe Camilleri and The Black Sorrows play at the Anglesea Golf Club this Friday and Saturday. Tickets including dinner and show (two courses plus cheese platter $77), or show only (from 8.30pm) $40. Bookings essential, phone Mary on 0419 155 935 or head to angleseagolfclub.com.au. Saturday’s show is sold out. Surf Coast Times and Bellarine Times readers can go in the running for three double passes to Friday’s show. Tell us what going to see Joe Camilleri at Anglesea Golf Club would mean to you at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm tomorrow and we will notify the lucky winners.

Psuedo Echo groove into Masters Games BY TIFFANY PILCHER THE Australian Masters Games just got funky, announcing 80s supergroup Psuedo Echo as the headline act for the celebratory closing ceremony in October. The “Funky Town” hit-makers are set to play their hits to send off the 8,000 games participants at the Avalon Airport Games Village at the conclusion of the week-long event. Pseudo Echo join Mental as Anything and James Reyne, who will play at the opening ceremony, as the top-billed acts for an entertainment filled week at the games with a further announcement to come for the major mid-week party. In honour of the band’s biggest hit which saw them top the Australian charts for 12 weeks and soar to the
top 10 in the USA and the UK, the closing ceremony theme and dress code will be “Funky Town”. Games director Ian Fitzpatrick said Pseudo Echo was an exciting addition to the blockbuster entertainment lineup. “We are absolutely thrilled to have Pseudo Echo as another headline act for our entertainment program.” “The opening and closing ceremonies have always attracted some great costumes, but we think the Funky Town theme will see them take on a whole new level and set the scene for the best send off from the games possible.” The Australian Masters Games is a mass participation sporting event for anyone over the age of 30, attracting over 8,000 participants in 54 sports, with its 14th edition being held in Geelong from October 5 to 12.
I HAVE recently returned from my first trip to Bali. It was a family holiday and our one rule on holidays is - within reason - do whatever you like and make sure you enjoy yourself. To some members of the family that meant shopping, some lazed by the pool or beach but for me it meant trying as many different restaurants as possible. Armed with some wonderful intelligence from my customers in Torquay, I set out to discover the culinary delights of Seminyak, Uluwatu, Jimbaran Bay and Nusa Dua. I soon discovered there are a plethora of other places to see in Bali, but this was my introduction. Many of you reading will be familiar with Potato Head, Ku De Ta and The Legian - all spectacular places to eat or simply to watch the world go by. My favourites were Sarong and Mama San. As it happens, both are run by head chef Will Meyrick. Originally from Scotland, Will’s stellar career path has led him from London to Sydney and extensively through South East Asia, where he fell in love with the exotic spices, flavours and textures that make the cuisine and its culture so unique. To quote from his own website: “After successful periods with two of Sydney’s leading restaurants, Longrain and Jimmy Liks, Will followed the call to experience more of what Asia’s burgeoning fine dining scene had to offer a young chef filled with passion and potential. Wooed by the opportunities that were opening up for him, Will invested some time exploring the professional landscape of the international foodie destinations of Thailand and Hong Kong, but eventually settled on Bali.” Sarong is fine dining at its best. What I really liked was the abundant space and attentive, but not overbearing, service. The food is complex flavours, all delivered with a deft touch. Do not miss the soft shell crab salad with peanut tamarind and chilli dressing. Mama San is a little more relaxed. Again, the feeling of space is luxurious, particularly in contrast to the lack thereof in everyday Balinese life. It is lofty without feeling empty and the service was impeccable - from the valet parking to the warm, heartfelt goodbye after a memorable lunch. The twice-cooked pork ribs with black bean ginger and soy were my favourite. The inspiration behind much of Will Meryick’s food lies in the Warungs of Bali. They are small family-owned shops, usually specialising in a particular street food. Following is a simple undis (bean) soup.
Jukut Undis INGREDIENTS 250g undis (black kara bean) 25g shallot 10g minced garlic 5g red chilli sliced 500ml chicken stock 10g galangal, bruised METHOD Soak the undis for two hours. Sautee sliced shallot, garlic and hot chilli, then simmer on a low heat until fragrant. Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil for about one minute. Add bruised galangal, followed by the soaked and drained undis and simmer for an hour. Serve garnished with coriander.

It’s crunch time, Capricorn, as you work out the future direction of a marriage, romantic relationship or close friendship. If you’re not sure which way to go, then let your intuition be your guide. Thursday through to Sunday are especially good days to join an online dating site, go on a first date, fall in love, propose, get married or renew your wedding vows.
Have you been having trouble communicating with a loved one? Stop talking and start listening. If you strive to see things from their point of view, then you’ll know what to say. Sunday should be a super day, as Neptune and Saturn trine Mars (your ruling planet) It’s a fabulous time to take creative ideas and turn them into practical and productive projects. Go Rams!
Have you been avoiding important issues; side-stepping challenges; and burying your head in the sand? With mighty Mars moving through your sign (until August 28) it’s time to be a courageous Crab, as you step up and face your fears. Draw inspiration from birthday great Nelson Mandela: “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.”
It’s a wonderful week for work matters and business projects as Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune support your talents and propel you into the spotlight. Others are finally sitting up and taking notice… so make sure you have something substantial to say. Procrastination is out and proactive plans are in, as you stride into the future with plenty of passion and purpose.
Careful and clever communication is the secret to a successful seven days. Attached Bulls, it’s a wonderful week to build bridges as you work through partnership problems in a mature and sensitive way. Singles: don’t waste your precious time on a part-time partner. Look for a lover who is ready to commit to a long-term relationship. They will be well worth the wait.
Your bossy side is softened by Venus, which endears you to others and helps smooth over problems in rickety relationships. It’s time for cantankerous Cats to be cooperative kittens! Lions love to be in the public spotlight but this week’s stars also encourage you to slow down socially and spend some quality time on your own. Solitude is soul food for you at the moment.
Has serious Saturn put an obstacle in your path, and do you feel as if it can’t be overcome? Or are you unsure about your future direction? This week’s stars encourage you to take on challenges with gusto, plus rework a long-term goal so that it better suits your aspirations. On Sunday, be careful you don’t dredge up old issues that are better left alone.
The Sun, Mars, Jupiter and retro Mercury are all visiting your wellbeing zone. So take a close look at your health and fitness; review your diet and exercise routine; and then make appropriate changes. Plus, with Saturn moving slowly through your reputation zone, take responsibility for the image you are portraying to the world. If you don’t like it, then change it.
It’s time to plug the cash flow drain and save, rather than spend. This week’s stars also zero in on core self-esteem issues, as you learn to love yourself for who you are on the inside (rather than what you do on the outside). Be inspired by musician Carlos Santana (born on July 20): “I know that I am worth more than my house, my bank account or any physical thing.”
Mercury is still in retrograde motion so you need to be a vigilant Virgo when travelling, texting, organizing appointments and communicating your ideas. If you’re in the market to buy a car or a computer, wait until next week (when Mercury will be moving forwards again). This week is the perfect time to tie up loose ends as you revise, rehearse, research and re-do.
Sagittarians are ready to shine! Jupiter forms a terrific trine with Neptune and Saturn, so make sure you capitalise on the good vibes that head your way. Don’t be so restless and distracted that you fail to recognize a fabulous opportunity when it comes along. All sorts of social and outdoor activities are also favored, as you flex your mind and muscles in exciting new ways.
This week’s stars stimulate your desire to pursue creative, humanitarian, religious or spiritual pursuits. You could also seek out the wise counsel of a mentor - or play that role yourself. Whatever you choose to do, lift your thinking from mundane daily concerns to more lofty and inspirational ideas. Music, writing, painting, prayer and meditation are also favored.

CLEAR EDGE LANDSCAPES AND FENCING
One stop quality from fencing to landscaping ZAC WELSH, owner of Clear Edge Landscapes and Fencing, prefers to take the time to get the job done right. His motto is quality, not quantity, and he wants the job to speak for itself. â€œThe quality of the work we do is very high, and we make sure with every job we do we pay particular care to the details.â€? After being inspired by family members to join the industry, Zac started working in landscaping a number of years ago. He went out on his own two years ago and in the past year the business has expanded enormously. Zac and his team pride themselves on
their strong attention to detail and provide a one-stop shop for all landscaping, fencing and â€œhardscapeâ€?. These â€œhardscapesâ€? include decking, retainer walls, crazy paving and any kind of fencing required can be taken care of. â€œWe take care of planting, design, grasses, and I get the help of a horticulturalist when the job requires irrigation and specific planting.â€? Clear Edge Landscapes and Fencing covers areas far and wide, going as far as Woodend and Gisborne, but concentrating on the Geelong, Bellarine and Surf Coast regions. â€œIâ€™ll organise fencing, concreting,

anything required for exteriors of any sized property.â€? Zac says the trend these days is to create a natural look. â€œThere is also a trend toward low maintenance gardens and drought proof plants. â€œWe might be getting a lot of rain now but thatâ€™s not always the case.â€? Passionate to complete only high quality work, Clear Edge Landscapes and Fencing can problem solve all exterior needs. For a chat or a quote, contact Zac by email firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0409 834 064.

Study options open up with SEDA
BY ALI DEANE
IF YOU’VE been dreaming of getting out of the classroom and into the sports industry, then a SEDA (Sport Education Development Australia) program could be for you. SEDA and Surfing Victoria programs in Torquay offer students the opportunity to combine a passion for surfing with an exciting educational pathway. Students complete year 11 and year 12 VCE and VCAL, certificates in sport and recreation, a diploma in fitness and a host of other accreditations and experience. Activities and assignments include surf coaching, judging, first aid, bronze medallion and events, and if you don’t surf you can pick it up along the way, or consider one of the many other SEDA sporting programs in Geelong and Melbourne. An information night is taking place in Geelong on Monday night, and that is how 2013 student Parry Kelly got involved. “I had a best mate in the program, from the year above me at school, and he said it was really good, so I went to the information night, and then my parents got behind it,” he said. “Obviously I like surfing, I like the sport aspect of it, and that it’s not all in a classroom.”
Studying and working on events like the Rip Curl Pro are just some of the exciting aspects of the SEDA sports development program. Here students Parry Kelly, Mac Fox, Bryce Holloway and Jack Brew catch up with pro surfer Owen Wright.
Kelly’s future goals involve travelling, working as a surf coach, and attaining a sport degree at university. For now, one semester in, he is revelling in the surf coaching of other SEDA students, where he is learning the ropes of instructing. Kelly said even though it was a lot of work, he would definitely recommend the SEDA sports program to anyone who had a general interest in sport, especially surfing, as it really “opens up opportunities.” It’s obvious how successful the program has been so far. In May, local stand up paddle boarder and second year SEDA student Kristi Page received a statewide VCAL award for intermediate work related skills at the student achievement awards. The information session for the 2014 SEDA sports program will be held at the Bruce Moore Room at Skilled Stadium, on July 22 from 7pm. Registrations not needed. For more information, email info@sedagroup. com.au or call 1300 11 7332. SEDA will also host a stall at the upcoming Future U Employment and Training Youth Expo at Surf Coast Sport and Recreation Centre, Beach Road, Torquay, this Sunday July 21 from 1-5pm, entry is free.
Second year SEDA student Kristi Page takes fellow SEDA students through a surf lesson at Torquay Surf Beach.

THE boating and swimming zones prepared under the Marine Act 1988 are aimed with the primary responsibility of providing a safe environment for water users. They are responsible for setting out and applying the conditions of operation and prohibit incompatible uses for safety reasons. The existing boating and swimming zones in Port Phillip and Western Port can be difficult to understand from the water or land. They have a large number of different types of zones that make them overly complex and do not reflect changing trends in boating and swimming activity. Parks Victoria (PV), as the local port manager of Port Phillip and Western Port, and Transport Safety Victoria (TSV) – which oversees the management of recreational boating across Victoria – have reviewed the existing zones. This was to determine what zone types are required in each local area around Port Phillip and Western Port to allow safe access and use of the coast and waterways. Following extensive community consultation, a standard set of zones and criteria for applying them was devised. PV has worked in partnership with Marine Safety Victoria and in consultation with the local community to apply these zones across Port Phillip and Western Port. The principles applied during review of the recommendations were that the boating and swimming zones should be safe, practical, easy to identify, easy to comply with and regulate, and responding to existing and anticipated future water uses. Four simple new zones will replace the current zones.
These are: • Boating only – swimming is not permitted in this zone • Swimming only – all vessels including personal watercraft, powered and non-power vessels are not permitted in this zone • Shared wind sport area – this zone provides an area for kite boarding, sail boarding and other wind based boating which may exceed five knots except within 50 metres proximity to other vessels and swimmers. Other vessels are permitted in this area. • Five knot speed limit zones

Hit the slopes, not the sidelines BY TIFFANY PILCHER SAFETY has to be the first priority to make sure you spend your time on the slopes rather than on the sidelines this snow season, according to Sports Medicine Australia. Hospital data shows an increase of more than 30 per cent for sporting injuries during winter months, and snowboarding and snow skiing are both sports with a high risk of injury. As most people partake in winter sports only
once, the risk of injury rises and it is important to remember how to minimise your risk. Sports physiotherapist and Sports Medicine Australia spokesman Mark Brown says good preparation is essential to avoiding injury and enjoying the ski season. “The risk of injury increases with fatigue, so skiing and snowboarding require a good level of general fitness, as well as strong lower limb and trunk muscles, and good balance and coordination. “Consider consulting a health professional such
Snowboarding and snow skiing are among the sports with the highest risk of injury, make sure you take proper precautions before strapping in your boots to avoid harm.
as a sports physiotherapist for a suitable exercise program that is designed specifically for you, especially if you have had a previous lower limb injury.” Regardless of your age and level of fitness, to snowboard and ski smarter you should work on your fitness before hitting the slopes. Strengthening of the quadriceps and hamstring muscle groups of the thigh are especially important to improve knee control. Make sure your equipment is the right type and
size for you, in good condition and use skin and eye protection. Even though the temperature may be low in alpine environments UV is often high so use a suitable sunscreen and sunglasses or tinted goggles. Ensure you get enough rest for recovery, concentrate on nutrition and hydration and prevent hypothermia by always wearing appropriately warm and dry clothing. Head to the Sports Medicine Australia website at sma.org.au/resources for more.
JAN Juc’s Xavier Huxtable stormed through his rounds of the Skullcandy Oz Grom Comp at Lennox Head last week, with a string of firsts including a massive 16.23 out of a possible 20 in the semi final, and returned home with the best result for our Surf Coast juniors. Moves like this photographed backhand snap worked for the 11-year old natural footer, who finished third overall – his second best result so far. Huxtable said the other boys were really good and provided some tough competition. “You had to be on your game. I like surfing competitions. They’re just real fun, and you learn a lot about your surfing. A lot of it’s been from Robbo (Adam Robertson), he’s helped heaps.”

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB THE Anglesea ladies won their first bowl of the season at Inverleigh this week in their “Rose Bowl” Challenge. The formidable team of captain Stefi Bates, Janice Pekin and Anne Stokes finished with 90 points and won the threeway countback. Not only did the club get the trophy for the cabinet, but also each of our ladies got a rather lovely rose for their gardens. Later in the week we had four teams competing at Rich River in their bowl. The course was in good conditions and with a lot more run than we are have at home, but unfortunately we were only able to win one raffle and a nearest the pin in the wrong division. Needless to say the teams did have a good time and perhaps that had some impact on the results. Booking can still be made for Joe Camilleri next weekend and the President’s and Captain’s Dinner on the following weekend. Check the website for all the details and booking information.
WITH MARGOT SMITH
The ladies played Stableford on Thursday. Winners were Sue Bowler in Division 1 with 33 points, Helen Stewart in Division 2 with 33 points and Linda Aimers in Division 3 with 30 points on a count back from Denise Mooney. NTP winners were Margot Parton, Ros Holland, Dee Matheson and Lorraine Elliott.
TORQUAY GOLF CLUB
FROM THE GOLF SHOP
Wednesday was medal day for the men and Richard Hammett continued his good form to take out the medal with a score of 4 up, winning A grade along the way. Syd Mitchell won C grade with 2 up, Luke Cini won B grade with square on a count back from Colin Favre and Brian Carpenter won the seniors with 4 down. NTP winners were Warren Heinnen, Barry Coleman, Russell Murfitt and Brad Eskrigge.
The weather for the weekend was cold and damp, and those that played were clearly tough – I hope they had good wet weather gear. Saturday was Stableford and we had quite a few starters that didn’t finish their rounds. The best of the three ladies that finished was Jan Stewart, and for the men our winners were Wayne Pipe in A grade with 35 points, Wayne McIntyre in B grade with 39 points on a count back from Sheamus Sushames, and Mike Grossman in C grade with the day’s best score of 42 points. Sunday was a teams event and the conditions were only marginally better than Sunday, but we did have most finish their rounds. Winners of the 4BBB Stableford were the Lewtas family, with Brendan and Ian finishing with 45 points. Runners up were Carl Rayner and Peter Calvert with 41 points and Lyn and Peter Thompson were third with 40 points. NTP winners were Bryan James, Ann Stokes, Dinah Kosky, and Brendan Lewtas. Enjoy your golf and stay warm and dry.

PORTARLINGTON GOLF CLUB WHEN we play golf we are a community at play and as such we have a few responsibilities. They are not necessarily rules of golf but certainly are common courtesies that we expect of ourselves and our fellow players. The following are the most obvious: If you make a divot with your shot you should use your sand bucket to backfill the mark. I also fill those around my mark because my shots are typical in length and I know I will revisit this area when I next play... I am looking after myself!) If you have a lost ball and can’t quickly find it, call the next group through so you don’t hold up the field. The call up takes the pressure off the player and doesn’t result in a loss of time. Bunkers – when you have finished your shot, dress the bunker and leave it in a respectable condition for the next player. Balls pitched onto the green often leave a depression in this weather. Search for your mark and repair it (and any other obvious marks). It is your responsibility to keep up with the group in front. On the fairway you should be able to move comfortably along about one-and-a-half shots behind. The Bistro was a happy place last Wednesday evening. I had the Tandoori lamb and it was nicely presented and a beautifully balanced meal. The members’ draw didn’t go off again so there is a jackpot to about $2000. I will be back next Wednesday!

Local life savers lauded BY ALI DEANE
Torquay SLSCâ€™s David Nankervis was named Life Saver of the Year.
LOCAL life savers were celebrated at Life Saving Victoriaâ€™s (LSV) 10th Annual Awards of Excellence on the weekend in a gala function at Lifeguards@200 on the beach in Port Melbourne. The annual awards celebrate and recognise the many achievements and contributions of LSVâ€™s 28,000 volunteer members, education and training casual staff. More than 30 awards were presented to recognise significant contributions, achievements and performances in life saving and water safety throughout the 2012/2013 season. For his dedication to Torquay Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC), director of life saving David Nankervis was presented with the John Wishart Memorial Trophy for Life Saver of the Year, and Point Lonsdale SLSCâ€™s Life Saving Emergency Response Team (LERT) walked away with the Outstanding Achievement of the Year award. Mr Nankervis is a vital member of Torquay SLSC, who performed more than 150 hours for the season. The LERT was nominated for its outstanding achievements in a five day search and rescue operation for a missing scuba diver off Point Lonsdale in July 2012.
LSV president Tom Mollenkopf thanked volunteers, their family and friends for their ongoing support and contribution to water safety and drowning prevention, on and off the beach. â€œVolunteering is a great contribution to the community and the life saving family, but it is also a commitment which can take away time with family and friends.â€? There were four inductions into the ranks of LSV Life Membership â€“ Andrew Barnes, Colin Ellicott and Maurice McCutcheon from Fairhaven SLSC and Martin Walsh of Lorne SLSC. Ocean Grove SLSCâ€™s Kira Kinsey was Female Athlete of the Year while Joel Simondson from Anglesea SLSC won Male Athlete of the Year. Masters Athlete of the Year went to Anglesea SLSCâ€™s Shane Edmonds, and the Anglesea Open Women Râ€˜nâ€™R team won one of two Teams of the Year awards.
Point Lonsdale SLSCâ€™s Life Saving Emergency Response Team. (L-R) Peter Sutas, Rowan Cross, Matthew Ponsford, James Quine and Matt Baenziger.
Ocean Grove SLSCâ€™s Kira Kinsey and Joel Simondson from Anglesea SLSC were awarded Female and Male Athletes of the Year.
