BABY STEPS State government commits $1.6m to Torquay children’s hub
BY JAMES TAYLOR
A CRUCIAL building block for the Torquay North children’s hub has been dropped into place, with the state government committing $1.6 million towards the project. On Friday, Minister for Children and Early Childhood Development Wendy Lovell and South Barwon MP Andrew Katos visited Torquay to announce the capital grant for the $8.6 million centre, which will be built in the civic and community precinct. In March, the Surf Coast Shire listed the hub among its three top advocacy priorities for funding at
November’s state election. It will provide families with 90 long day care places, 88 places for four-year-old kindergarten and 66 places for three-yearold kindergarten, alongside other children’s services such as Maternal and Child Health. The shire is seeking a total of $3.2 million from the state and federal governments to build the facility, and will fund the rest of the $5.4 million cost itself and through developer contributions. Ms Lovell said the children’s hub was a “rather ambitious project” but it would hopefully get off the ground very soon.
“The people of the Surf Coast Shire should be very proud they have a local government which is willing to invest and make that commitment.” The shire estimates the hub will need to be built within two years to meet rapid population growth in Torquay and that based on existing demand, it would be at capacity shortly after opening. Shire mayor Rose Hodge said childcare was a huge responsibility for local government. “It’s one of those buildings that just has to be done.” In response to questions, Corangamite federal member
Sarah Henderson did not specifically answer whether the federal government would provide funds for the centre, but welcomed the state government’s commitment to the project. “Child care is a critical issue on the Surf Coast, like it is in many other parts of Corangamite. The federal government is committed to making child care more affordable, flexible and accessible.” The Surf Coast Shire has put up signs and launched a social media campaign to lobby the state and federal governments for the remaining money, using the hashtag #EveryKidDeservesKinder.

New regional tourism board will put the visitor first BY JAMES TAYLOR THE new tourism body for the Great Ocean Road says it will make a conscious effort to put the needs of the region’s visitors first. Great Ocean Road Regional Tourism (GORRT) held industry engagement forums for local businesses and operators in Lorne and Warrnambool last week. Speaking at the Lorne event, GORRT chair Wayne Kayler-Thomson said the organisation – which covers an area from Torquay to the South Australian border – had been deliberately established as a company. “We recognise that tourism is a business. It’s not a committee, it’s not an incorporated association – it’s a serious business activity. So we need to act as if it is a serious business activity, and this will guide we way we act into the future.” He said GORRT’s business model recognised the most important part of regional tourism was the visitor, followed by the industry and the community,
local organisations, sub-regional organisations, and GORRT itself at the bottom. “Everything we do should be driven by ‘what is the visitor expectation, what is the visitor experience that they’re seeking, and have we delivered a satisfactory experience?’.” The board has defined its mission as providing leadership for the development, marketing, management, advocacy and facilitation of sustainable yield growth of the regional visitor economy. Mr Kayler-Thomson said the word “tourism” would be progressively dropped and GORRT would instead talk about “the visitor economy”. “When you talk about tourism, inevitably, people think about the leisure visitor, and they forget about the business visitor, they forget about visiting friends and relatives, and a whole range of other reasons why people are visitors and come into our community. “They all spend money, so we need to spend time thinking about the broader visitor economy,
not just leisure tourism.” GORRT is now seeking feedback on business services it can develop and provide, as well as
setting up a business database and drawing up an action plan for nine priority destinations in the region.
GORRT chair Wayne Kayler-Thomson speaks at the industry engagement forum in Warrnambool.
Hazelwood inquiry sparks Anglesea bond question BY JAMES TAYLOR SURF Coast Air Action (SCAA) has queried the amount of money earmarked to eventually rehabilitate the Anglesea coal mine, following revelations at the inquiry into the Hazelwood mine fire. The environmental group says it is “ridiculous” for Alcoa to be allowed to sell the site if the state government was not aware of the risks, but Minister for Energy and Resources Russell Northe said the $13.94 million bond for Anglesea would fully cover its rehabilitation.
Last week, the inquiry into the fire at the Hazelwood mine heard from the Department of State Development, Business and Innovation (DSDBI) that the $15 million bond for the cleanup of the mine was an “underestimate” of the total cost. SCAA has urged Mr Northe to commission independent research into the risks of public health, coal mine fire and ground movement from the continued operation of the Anglesea facility. “The revelation that the Hazelwood bond is insufficient reinforces the need for immediate
intervention by the Energy Minister and Premier Dennis Napthine,” SCAA spokesperson Dr Jacinta Morahan said. “It’s ridiculous for the government to even be considering allowing a sale until it is fully on top of all of the risks that the mine and power plant pose to Anglesea.” SCAA’s Mark Smith questioned whether the bond would cover the cost of restoring the Anglesea Heath to its pre-mining condition. “How can we be sure that Alcoa or a future operator won’t just walk away and leave a great hole in the ground if the rehabilitation
bond is inadequate?” Yesterday, Mr Northe said had been advised by DSDBI “of their confidence that (the Anglesea) bond is appropriate to cover the full rehabilitation of the site, as set out in the mine’s rehabilitation plan”. “With regards to the potential sale of Anglesea mine and power station, while there is no guarantee that a buyer would be forthcoming, any potential new owner would continue to be subject to the stringent existing obligations imposed on Alcoa, which include a bond and work plan to deal with any risks in the future.”

Surf Coast kinder enrolment deadline approaches FAMILIES wanting to apply for a place for their children at Torquay, Jan Juc, Lorne and Anglesea Kindergartens for 2015 are encouraged to move quickly as the Friday June 27 deadline for applications is approaching. The Surf Coast Shire operates a central application process for these kindergartens, with the aim of ensuring a more convenient, fair, efficient and transparent allocation of places. The process means families only need to complete one application form if seeking a place
at any of these centres. Surf Coast mayor Rose Hodge said demand for kindergarten places would be strong again in 2015. “Because of the ever-growing demand for kindergarten places on the Surf Coast, it is really important that parents enrol their children quickly,” Cr Hodge said. “The central process is the best way of helping to ensure places get allocated fairly and helping local kindergartens through the
administrative process of dealing with enrolments for the following year. “Demand will continue to grow into the future and the central application process council operates is one way we can address this issue. “Council is working hard on securing funding for new facilities like the Torquay North Family and Children’s Hub to help ensure every kid can access kinder into the future.” Applications must be made by completing the form which can be downloaded from
the Surf Coast Shire website and emailed to email@example.com. A hard copy of the forms can be found at all participating kindergartens, at Torquay Children’s Services Hub at 27 Grossmans Road and the Surf Coast Shire Council Offices at 1 Merrijig Drive, Torquay. All supporting documentation must be included for applications to be considered. For more information, visit surfcoast.vic.gov.au and look for “Kindergartens” under the A-Z listing.
Hundreds farewell ‘Stretch’ in Torquay BY HAMISH BROOKS NEARLY 1,000 people turned out to the funeral of a Torquay Football Club identity on Tuesday. Terry Thomas Jones, known to all as ‘Stretch’, died last week of a heart attack, and his passing had a large impact on the community he was intimately involved in. The priest told mourners at the funeral at St

Therese Catholic Church that the silence of such a large crowd meant everyone was in shock. The solemn service was followed by a wake at the Torquay Football Club and a spokesperson for the club said it was the most people ever to attend a wake there. She said it reflected how well-loved and respected he was. “He was a revered, life member of the Torquay Football Club, life member of the Bellarine Football League, and among a raft of other achievements, he was coach, president and chairman of selectors at the club over various years. “He was at the footy every weekend, and if he wasn’t there he was away with friends from the footy club. People from all over Australia came to the funeral. “He was always smiling and always offering really good advice to everyone at the club. “He never forgot anyone and he won’t be forgotten.” ‘Stretch’ is survived by his beloved wife Colleen, and daughters Amber, Sheridan and Alanna.

Casson to talk transformation in Torquay BY JAMES TAYLOR
THE chief executive officer of the Committee for Geelong (CfG) will be the guest speaker at Torquay Commerce and Tourism’s (TCT) next Business Breakfast event. Rebecca Casson will deliver a speech entitled “Transforming Geelong” at the breakfast, which will be held at Growlers on Tuesday. Ms Casson moved from the United Kingdom to Australia in 2009, and was appointed as CfG’s chief executive officer last year. She has high-level experience in international partnerships, political management, strategic projects and policy. TCT president Barrie Sutherland said Ms Casson would be an excellent speaker as her talk
would examine a case study that affected Torquay in many ways. “Jobs lost here – Geelong employees and contractors are living here – and revenue decline from Geelong have the impact of less visitors here. “Torquay businesses need to be aware of how Geelong job losses will affect them and what Geelong is doing about it.” CfG provides strategic leadership and influence to leverage the economic potential of the region to make Geelong a worldclass place. In February, the independent organisation released its “Transforming Geelong” status report on the region’s economy and major projects in development. These included:
• Increasing capacity for employment growth, such as the Skilling the Bay project • Investing in culture, recreation and lifestyle, such as the new library and heritage centre • Large-scale improvements in health infrastructure, such as the new teaching hospital in Waurn Ponds • Housing and associated development to accommodate growth, such as Armstrong Creek, and • Transport opportunities for the future, such as Avalon Airport. The business breakfast will be held at Growlers, 23 The Esplanade, Torquay, on Tuesday from 7.15am. Cost is $20 and includes breakfast. Tickets are limited – to book, head to torquaycommerce.com.au.

Callum’s set to play with the world’s best BY TIFFANY PILCHER
YOUNG Torquay musician Callum Watson will be taught by leaders from one of the world’s best performing arts schools when he undertakes a program delivered by The Juilliard School teachers at Melbourne University’s Trinity College this month. Callum, 17, is in year 11 at Surf Coast Secondary College and plays a range of instruments, but favours the piano and the bagpipes. He was one of 40 high school students from across Australasia to be accepted into the New York Jazz Symposium at Trinity, featuring teachers from the famed New York school including Carl Allen, Rodney Jones, Matthew Jodrell, Chris Ziemba, Carla Cook and more. Callum was hand-picked for the program by Carl Allen, who viewed his audition tape of Torquay musician Callum Watson will be taught by Juilliard teachers at the New York Jazz Symposium a recorded jazz standard, and said he was thrilled this month.
to be taking part. “We’ll be doing a range of masterclasses, workshops and performance practices,” he said. “Carl Allen, the piano teacher, was taught by Kenny Barron who invented techniques I use a lot so it’s a great opportunity.” Callum has been performing at local venues since he was in Grade 4 at school and also gigs regularly with his band, Flawed Peace. His mother Nicole said she has been aware of his musical aptitude from a very young age. “No one else in the family is musical, he’s a real black sheep in that way. “Even his kinder teacher called us to tell us he was pitch-perfect, we had no idea. “He continues to astound me with his talent and we’re so proud that he’s taking on this incredible opportunity.” Callum will take part in the intensive course from June 29 to July 5.

COMMUNITY PROFILE Whales ahoy!! – For those lucky enough to be on the Lorne Pier on Saturday, the large ocean mammal came within metres of the many onlookers who couldn’t believe their eyes. And just when the excitement started to subside, out came our resident seal to complete the amazing blue water show in our pristine Louttit Bay ocean environment. There is nothing like the raw beauty of these ocean dwellers in their own natural playground. Keep your eyes out over the coming months as whale season is well and truly underway, and for the enthusiasts keep an eye on the front of the Tourist Information Centres around the coast that will display the blue ﬂag with the white whale when there has been a sighting. It was great to see a large crowd attend Great Ocean Road Regional Tourism’s Engagement Forum last Thursday evening at Lorne Cumberland Resort. Those in attendance heard about the new direction for our region and how businesses can get involved. This new body certainly has everyone talking about the plans and initiatives that are proposed, but one thing was very clear and that is that the outcomes are going to require input from individuals and local Tourism Associations. Lorne is very lucky in this regard with our active Lorne Business and Tourism Association and in particular their Love Lorne campaign. But it is times like now that our great local group will need all the support and input that our community can commit to ensure that Lorne is presented and represented with the “centre stage” billing that we deserve. A big “get well” to local identity Alan Green (Al Pal) as he progresses from St John of God Hospital to Grace McKellar to commence his rehabilitation after his recent surgery. In setting his goal for a milestone overseas birthday next year, Al is in good spirits as we all get behind him to support him on the journey. When I sat with him last Friday evening he was overwhelmed by the numbers of Lorne people that had come to see him and or send their wishes. A great story to emerge was that when Mac and Barb Campbell dropped in to see him last week, Mac (who had been battling his own problems with the strength and support you would expect) was quick to remind Al that it was he, as local football coach, who elevated him for his ﬁrst senior footy game at age 15. Those days of active sport may be well behind a lot of us but the great community spirit of this town will always live on!
Have you tried lawn bowls at Lorne Bowls? Last month, at the Annual General Meeting of the Lorne Bowls Club, a new committee was elected and this team is committed to attracting new players to the sport of lawn bowls and to making the Lorne Bowls Club a successful competitor in the regional competition. The committee welcomes new bowlers and those interested in taking up the game, to come down to the Club and join in. During winter, there is no formal competition but plenty of opportunities for practice and informal games. The Club restaurant and bar is open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights for a meal and the venue is proving to be very popular with locals and visitors alike. The new committee of the Bowls Club comprises: President - Tony Peddie Senior Vice President - Allan Walls Treasurer - Peter Spring Secretary – Gary Allen General Committee – Sam Coulson, Jennifer Dulloo, Clive Goldsworthy, Helga Lewis, John Russell and Jeff Woolley This team is ably supported by a Greens Director, Selectors and Match Committee. The Lorne Bowls Club was established after the Second World War at a site adjacent to the Surf Life Saving Club on the foreshore. Hector Stribling, the patriarch of Erskine House, was the principal force in the formation of the Club, and in addition to his role in administration his legendary horticultural skills managed to provide a wonderful lawn playing surface on the salty conditions of the beachside location. The Club had a good membership and healthy pennant and tournament performance through the decades of the second half of the 20th century. With the redevelopment of Erskine House in the 1990’s and new plans for the foreshore, the club was relocated to its present site, the former croquet lawn of the guesthouse. Part of the Club House is heritage listed and was the former shelter for the croquet players. The Club has had a long association with the Corangamite Division of Bowls Victoria. This division sees the club playing in a region bounded by Apollo Bay the south, Skipton in the north, and Cobden in the west. Lorne is on the eastern side of the region, and the central focus of the division is Colac where there are four clubs. Currently, Lorne ﬁelds a Saturday pennant side in what was traditionally a men’s competition, and
a Tuesday pennant side in what was traditionally a women’s competition. The gender divide is well and truly blurred nowadays, and gents and ladies play in both pennant teams. The highlight of recent seasons was the 2nd Division Premiership in 2012-13. In addition to pennant play, the club runs a syllabus of championship and tournament games. Club singles, pairs and triples championships are keenly contested. There are also handicap championships; so newer and less experienced bowlers can share in the chances of honour board hero status. The Club makes good use of the large number of bowlers from all over the state who visit the surf coast during the warmer months between the end of the AFL season and ANZAC day. You can be assured over the holiday periods there will be a games of pairs, triples or fours, with well sponsored prizes, and a good “feed”. Don’t let it be said that bowling is just for the older members of our community; the average age of the Australian bowls team is younger than the Australian cricket team. Bowls is truly a game for all ages, men and women. It is easily learnt, but hard to perfect, but the result is that you can enjoy a sense of accomplishment from your ﬁrst day on the rink. We would welcome new members to the Club and in September, we will be running a series of very informal coaching classes to help those of you would like the opportunity to come and have a game and learn some of the ﬁner points of bowls. The club also runs a “barefoot” bowls program during the summer, which is particularly popular amongst teenagers at happy hour. So next time you’re in Lorne, drop in to our happy “Shangri La” for a jar, a meal or a roll, or better still, do all three, and tell be bar staff Rumpole sent you. And for those of you currently playing other sports, such as golf, who are maybe contemplating taking up bowls, remember; one of the advantages bowling has over golf is that you seldom lose a bowling ball. If you are interested in enquiring about membership or the coaching classes in September or just joining us for a meal on Friday, Saturday or Sunday night, call 5289 1462 or email us at email@example.com We hope to see you soon!

We can thank Wendy for the return of our ﬁre siren. It took two years as leader of a local lobby group and a chance opportunity for John to speak to the Premier on radio, to fulﬁl her mission. Wendy was born in Lorne, as were her parents. In secondary school she developed an interest in Japanese, going on to major in the language at university. After graduation she taught in Geelong, and was a governess in Saudi Arabia before moving to Japan where she taught English for seven years. Wendy returned to Lorne in 1997, the year John had taken a job with the local Barwon Water branch. Unknown to each other but introduced by family, they eventually married in 1999. Wendy decided on a change of pace and for ten years worked in Lorne’s shoe shop. John had previously taught civil engineering at Moorabbin TAFE and later had worked at Anglesea Power Station. He had holidayed in Lorne with family in the 60s and since then was a dedicated visitor until moving here. Tennis is a shared passion, both representing Lorne in pennant teams over the years. For eight years John has been tennis captain of the Lorne Country Club. Tennis is still very much a priority. Each Easter he and Wendy organise the tennis tournament, an annual Club event. John is also passionate about football and is an award winning sports writer for The Lorne Independent. Transitioning to retirement, John and Wendy have established a thriving gardening business but still have time to be involved in community activities including the Op Shop and Meals on Wheels.

Community sends a message at Teesdale roadside mail poll BY JAMES TAYLOR PLANS for roadside mail in Teesdale have been returned to sender, with some of the town’s residents angry and frustrated with Australia Post’s consultation process. Corangamite federal member Sarah Henderson hosted a packed forum on the issue at the Teesdale Community Hall on Wednesday night. Residents presently collect their mail from the licensed post office at the general store, but there has been a growing push to introduce roadside mail delivery – it was the top question posed to candidates at the Citizens’ Agenda meeting before the federal election. At Wednesday’s forum, Ms Henderson announced she had just learned that Australia Post would start a mail poll of 700 homes from June 23 to seek feedback. This news was met with heavy criticism from the audience, as the poll’s methodology would be identical to the 2008 poll, which determined roadside mail was not wanted in Teesdale. Unreturned polling forms are counted as a “no” vote, which one resident described as “the most undemocratic process I’ve ever heard of”. Many residents were also sceptical at Australia Post representative Vaughan Mitchell’s revelations that the letters would be handdelivered to homes, and doubted whether all
completed polls would be returned. However, some residents spoke in favour of retaining the status quo. “Not every person in the community is going to return it, and maybe it’s because they don’t care,” one man said.
Ms Henderson said a June 23 start was “very premature” given the concerns, and she would write to Australia Post chief executive officer Ahmed Fahour asking him to delay the poll and change the poll policy so that only “yes” and “no” responses were counted.

Cardboard cut-outs of boats and planes will be offered to all comers to create a display of family stories from convict times through waves of immigration to the present time. Indigenous Australians will also be honoured, along with their hopes for recognition and reconciliation. The story displays can be seen in St Luke’s Anglican Church in Torquay, and in Uniting Churches in Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads, and Torquay. Another highlight is the stories of former refugees who found safety in Australia. Last Sunday, David Nyol Vincent, author of The Boy Who Wouldn’t Die, told his amazing story of survival at the Ocean Grove Uniting Church. David, from Sudan, survived war, famine, and 17 years in refugee camps before building a new life in Australia. He now works to bring about peace in Sudan. Tri Nguyen, who escaped by boat from Vietnam, will also speak at two Surf Coast events later this month. He recently walked to Canberra towing a wooden boat to symbolise his thanks to Australia and his hopes for better treatment of asylum seekers. Tri will speak at a community gathering at Lightkeepers Motel in Aireys Inlet on June 28 at 3pm. This event is sponsored by Surf Coast Rural Australians for Refugees in Aireys Inlet. He will also speak at the Combined Christian Churches of Anglesea quarterly service, to be held at the Uniting Church, Murch Crescent, Anglesea on June 29 at 10am.

Candidates asked to show support for renewables BY JAMES TAYLOR
THE Geelong Sustainability Group, Surf Coast Energy Group (SCEG) and Friends of the Earth supporters have urged South Barwon candidates in the state election to commit to wind energy. An open letter from the three groups was sent on June 15 â€“ Global Wind Day â€“ to incumbent Liberal MP Andrew Katos, Labor candidate Andy
Richards and Greens candidate Lisa Ashdowne. The letter seeks the candidatesâ€™ position on renewable energy, asking them to support repealing the restrictions on wind farms introduced by former premier Ted Baillieu, and to support a Renewable Energy Target for Victoria. Research by Friends of the Earth claims the wind farm restrictions have cost Victoria 438 megawatts of clean energy, representing $864 million worth of investment and 466 jobs.
SCEG president Aaron Lewtas said the hundreds of members of SCEG and the Geelong Sustainability Group supported wind farms and wanted the restrictions â€“ which ban wind farms within 2 kilometres of homes and include â€œno go zonesâ€? for wind farm projects in the seat of South Barwon â€“ repealed. â€œThereâ€™s the extraordinary contradiction in the region. In Anglesea a polluting coal mine and power plant operates just 500 metres from homes and 1.2
kilometres from a primary school, yet under Coalition government policy, wind would be prohibited at the same site.â€? Friends of the Earthâ€™s Yes 2 Renewables project is supporting the open letter. â€œWind farms create jobs and investment, delivers drought-proof income for regional communities and help tackle global warming. Itâ€™s a win-win,â€? Yes 2 Renewables spokesperson Dan Cowdell said.
Grove primary pupils put the fun into their run
Grade 3 boys line up to begin their run.
Ocean Grove Primary School teachers, students and families headed down to the Blue Waters Lake for the schoolâ€™s annual fun run on Friday. Organiser Em Kaiser said runners were greeted by perfect weather. â€œMother nature certainly switched on the weather for us. The sun was out all day with not a cloud in the sky!â€? Foundation (prep) pupils began their run at 11am and the rest of the schoolâ€™s event times were scattered throughout the day. Foundation pupils ran a shortened lap of about 1 kilometre, Grade 1 and 2 pupils ran one lap (1.5 kilometres) and Grades 3 to 6 pupils ran two laps. Parents and families were also invited to join in the event. â€œInvolving the families gave it a great community feel and they really enjoyed being able to run with their children. â€œWe had a drink station set up where the students could grab a drink while running past and a large timing device recording the total of student running time, all in true fun run style!â€? Pupils are in the process of gathering sponsorship
money for the run. â€œIf we raise enough money Mr D, our principal, has promised the students a new playground! If you would like to make a donation to this major fundraising event, please contact the school on 5255 1340.â€? Spot prize winner Charlie Atkinson, from Grade 2, said â€œWhen I crossed the finish line I felt so proud of myself. I was so happy that I was able to get around Blue Waters Lake without stopping. I had a really fun time.â€?
Ocean Grove Primary pupils Stephanie, Georgie and Abbey.

G21 shares refugees’ stories on social media BY JAMES TAYLOR SOCIAL media is promoting the positive contribution refugees and asylum seekers make to the G21 region as part of this year’s Refugee Week, which began on Sunday and will finish on Saturday. Under the hashtag #G21RefugeeWeek, G21’s Twitter and Facebook accounts are featuring a different story on each day of the week, highlighting the important contribution people from refugee backgrounds are making to the region with the support of the wider community. Acting G21 chief executive officer Dr Fiona Reidy said Refugee Week was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the diverse backgrounds of people within the region. “Diversity makes communities richer by introducing new ideas and approaches to everyday life. However, Refugee Week also highlights some of the problems and obstacles those seeking asylum in Australia can face. “The G21 region welcomes people from all backgrounds. The stories G21 will promote during the week demonstrate how eager to give back to their new community refugees and asylum seekers are when offered the chance at a new life in our community. “The Northern Bay College Wexford Campus Homework Club, featured in one of the daily stories, demonstrates the enthusiasm and community benefits

Vegetation management around local power lines to begin soon BY JAMES TAYLOR POWERCOR will soon begin vegetation management in towns across the Surf Coast Shire, the Borough of Queenscliffe and the City of Greater Geelong to increase safety and help minimise supply disruptions. The works program, devised with input from the councils of the three municipalities, requires the pruning of trees on public and private land as well as limited removal of trees that pose a safety risk. Powercor’s vegetation management policies
and practices are in accordance with the updated Electricity Safety (Electric Line Clearance) Regulations 2010. The updated regulations require trees be trimmed further than in the past and increased management cycles. The regulations also specify different clearance requirements depending on whether areas are deemed high or low bushfire risk. The CFA rates most of the towns within the three municipalities as low-risk. The affected towns include: • Surf Coast Shire: Anglesea, Jan Juc, Torquay,
Aireys Inlet, Moriac, Winchelsea, Lorne and Deans Marsh • City of Greater Geelong: Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads, Portarlington, Clifton Springs, Drysdale and Leopold • Borough of Queenscliffe: Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff. Powercor says it is aware the communities in the three municipalities have strong feelings about vegetation, which is why it has sought input about vegetation management from the respective councils and to reduce the impact on the majority of
the shire council towns’ tree assets. The company will conduct vegetation management works over the coming months throughout the affected towns, where trees are in contact with, or likely to contact, lines. Work will be conducted in consultation with the councils. Powercor will notify all affected residences, and encourages any concerned residents to make contact to discuss works. It has also encouraged appropriate planting of low-growing trees near power lines. For more information, phone Powercor’s Aiden Rippon on 5338 3300.
LEGO fans to connect at Queenscliffe Bricks

LEGO fans will be in their element this weekend when Point Lonsdale hosts its annual Queenscliffe Bricks display. The event will feature an award-winning Quidditch Pitch, a huge Sydney Harbour Bridge and a LEGO movie stand that children can have their photo taken in. The number of pieces in the Quidditch Pitch is unknown but there are 500 students in the stadium and about 100 professors and guests in the towers, and it takes around six hours to set up. President of the Rotary Club of Queenscliffe Marianne Deacon said these were just three of the many LEGO models to be provided by the Melbourne LEGO User Group (MUGs). Organised by the Rotary Club of Queenscliffe,
the event will be held at the Point Lonsdale Primary School Hall, Bowen Road, on June 21 from 9.30am to 5pm and Sunday June 22 from 9am to 3pm. New inclusions will be LEGO free-play areas, a retail zone and a LEGO prize to be won at each of the 18 sessions over the two days. All net proceeds from Queenscliffe Bricks will be spent on Rotary community projects locally, nationally and internationally. To ensure patrons get tickets in the time slot they want, visitors are encouraged to book online prior to the event through trybooking.com/71506 or via the Rotary Club’s website, queensclifferotary.org.au. Adults cost $10, children 5-14 cost $6 and under five years are free.

New ICU opens at Geelong Hospital BY JAMES TAYLOR GEELONG Hospital’s new Intensive Care Unit (ICU) opened last week, and will provide patients with critical care services, expert staff and equipment to treat life-threatening conditions. The ICU has 24 beds – six more beds than the old unit – including two beds for paediatric patients, reducing the need to transfer them to Melbourne. The new building features two pods of 12 single rooms, each fitted out with the same layout
to help provide uniformity of care. Staff and patients moved into the new building, located on level four of the hospital across from the existing ICU, on Monday. The $36 million project took two years to complete. Opening the ICU last week, Victorian Premier Denis Napthine said the state government was investing in new facilities to deliver world-class health care. “It will not only boost health outcomes in the Barwon region, it will provide a much greater level
Pukk swings her way to success Portarlington’s Ashlee Pukk swung her way to success at the weekend by winning a junior championship at St Leonards Golf Club. Pukk won the South Western District Ladies Golf Association’s (SWDLGA) Junior Championship on Sunday after a three hole playoff from Clifton Springs’ Grace Campagnolo. The nett winner was Torquay’s Holly Kilmartin (102- 28-73) and the winner of the first round of the Vicky Uwland junior bracelet, which was played in conjunction, was Grace Campagnolo with 35 points. NTP went to Ashlee Pukk and Grace Campagnolo. See page 93 for coverage of the SWDLGA pennant season.
of comfort for patients and their families who are experiencing difficult circumstances.” Health Minister David Davis said investing in health infrastructure in Geelong was pivotal to addressing the increasing demand for services. “The Coalition government recognises the benefits of health services closer to home in Victoria’s largest regional city. “Capital upgrades underway at Geelong Hospital include 24 new palliative care beds, 32 new medical/surgical beds, eight new oncology beds, 24
replacement oncology beds, eight sub-acute beds, 20bed cancer accommodation and more.” At the opening, Barwon Health chief executive Professor David Ashbridge emphasised the quality of service that would underpin the new development. “This is more than just a high class building; the benefits of this new facility will be underpinned by the excellence and skill of the very best staff in the region providing the very highest quality care,” he said.
Big day in for tech-savvy students BY JAMES TAYLOR SENIOR high school students in Geelong will benefit from the insights of more than 30 experienced technology professionals at a career event with a difference, to be held at Sacred Heart College next week. One of a series of 10 such events being held nationally, the June 24 “BiG Day In” will be the first time it has been held in Geelong, at the invitation of Cr Rod Macdonald and with the co-operation and support of the City of Greater Geelong. “I attended a similar event held in Melbourne in 2013 and realised Geelong students would gain a significant benefit by getting direct access to the quality information provided on the day,” Cr Macdonald said. “I approached the organisers, the Australian Computer Society (ACS) Foundation, with the idea of holding the event in Geelong. “Our region is experiencing challenges at the moment and the technology industry provides young people with a ‘future proof’ career opportunity.”
Junior champion Ashlee Pukk.
The BiG Day In is a careers event with a difference – it is designed by students for students. On the day, the students will hear from a range of speakers from organisations such as HP, WiseTech Global, Deloitte, and from a number of local organisations such as FE Technologies and ICT Geelong, and be able to hear first-hand the experiences and journeys of the presenters. They will be able to speak with the presenters, ask questions and get valuable information to enable them to make better informed career decisions. One of the messages students will hear on the day is the importance of them gaining relevant industry experience to complement their studies and qualifications. ACS Foundation (ACSF) executive director John Ridge said the foundation ran a series of programs enabling students to get that experience. “The role of the ACSF is to assist them to make the transition from their studies into the industry.” Any students or teachers wishing to attend the BiG Day In can head to thebigdayin.com.au or phone Kerrie Bisaro on (02) 8296 4444 or 0417 409 069.

Adventure Fest prepares for 10th birthday BY JAMES TAYLOR
THE Lorne Adventure Fest celebrates its 10th anniversary on December 6-7, and organisers expect a number of old teams to reunite to take it on again. Formerly called the Anaconda Adventure Race, the Lorne Adventure Fest is widely regarded as Victoria’s biggest adventure race weekend with more than 2,000 competitors taking part. Held in the landscape surrounding Lorne, the Adventure Fest includes a range of events: • The 55-kilometre Lorne Adventure Race, featuring
a 1.9-kilometre ocean swim, 13-kilometre paddle, 16-kilometre trail run, 23-kilometre mountain bike and a 700-metre beach run to finish • The half-distance Lorne Mini Adventure Race for younger competitors and first timers, and • The Lorne Junior Survivor, a 4-kilometre running and obstacle course for children aged 4 to 13. Two-time Lorne Adventure Race winner Grant Suckling said the event had brought him many memorable moments. “What do I love about the Lorne Adventure Fest? What’s not to love? Great location, great
course and great people. “It’s definitely a highlight on the sporting calendar for me and has been since it started.” Jan Juc’s Tony Freijah has attended every Lorne Adventure Fest and will be coming back again in 2014. “It's a great location and even if you feel like dying, at least the scenery is nice,” he said. “These days it's probably more of a social occasion for me than a competitive one. It’s a chance to catch up with people I don't see much during the year as well as old foes from triathlon days.”
Rapid Ascent race director John Jacoby said he expected to see a lot of familiar faces as many of the old teams got back together, as well as a number of racers who would come out of retirement and join in for the anniversary celebrations. “It’s been one incredible adventure racing journey over the last 10 years and we’re really looking forward to celebrating in style with everyone in December.” For the first time, the event will also incorporate the Australasian Multisport Championships. To enter, head to lorneadventurefest.com.au.

Early intervention program in Geelong continues THE state government has provided new funding to continue an early intervention program for young people in Greater Geelong who are at risk of entering the youth justice system. Youth Support Service assists young people who have had recent contact with police and aims to divert them away from a life of crime. At least 105 young people from the region, aged between 10 and 17, at risk of becoming involved in
(or are in early stages of involvement with) youth justice will be targeted and participate in the program on a voluntary basis. The statewide service received $17.1 million in the state budget to provide the early intervention assessment, case work and referral services. South Barwon MP Andrew Katos said Youth Support Service, which is delivered in Geelong by Time for Youth, works with young people to assess
their needs, and assist them to develop positive life goals and get access to other support and services. “Funding has been continued as a recent evaluation of the service highlighted that the program has been successful at diverting young people away from the youth justice system, addressing the underlying causes of their offending behaviour, and reducing the level of contact young people accessing the service have with Victoria Police.”
Minister for Community Services Mary Wooldridge said the Youth Support Service program would divert young people away from the youth justice and potentially the criminal justice systems. “It also helps young people achieve positive outcomes including better school engagement, reduced family conflict and a reduced likelihood of requiring tertiary-end services such as alcohol and drug treatment and mental health services.”

Holistic approach to weight loss is key to client success GYM owner Robyn Reimers had been employed by large companies in the oil industry for around 30 years before she set up Club Exec in 2009. Club Exec is a gym which offers a holistic approach to fitness by providing meals and other health advice to its members from trained professionals including a naturopath. “In the early 80s, the reason for my strong focus on health and wellbeing was to simply get through each of my working days without feeling like breaking down or getting physically hurt,” Ms Reimers said. “Little did I know at the time that this added strength and fitness was having a much bigger affect on my mental state and mood, allowing me to really advance myself in an occupation that seemed impossible for a female to undertake. “When initially looking at starting up my own health club, I did so from the angle of assisting working people, similar to the way added health had benefited me. “When starting out, I soon found there were areas of clients’ health that I needed to control in order to achieve any sort of result. “Short of moving in with them, it was simply out of my hands. In 2013, after nearly five years running the club, I made a clear decision that our club had to be ‘more than just a gym’, it had to be a ‘one stop shop for all your health and fitness needs’ if we were going to really be able to genuinely assist people with their health and fitness, and also that the longevity of our club was going to depend on it.” Ms Reimers said simply continuing to train people is not enough. “Nutrition is the most important thing to get right and our members were needing access to it 24 hours a day. “I guess it is similar to the reason that I shop at Woolworths when I know I should go to all the smaller specialty shops. I simply do not have time! The food arm of the business, named “Clean eating on the run” offers a superfood menu made by Club Exec’s partners in fine food, Vitality Cafe. It is food as nature intended it. Clean, natural and with the right balance of macronutrients designed to keep blood sugar steady throughout the day. “Our six-week lifestyle lockdown programs are
generating huge results with people, even in their 50s to 60s, with some in this age bracket achieving up to as much as a 14 centimetre reduction from their waistline in just on six weeks. “Even though most clients enter into this program for size reduction, people have been more inspired by the health improvements which are obvious even after the first week.” The exercise side of programme is also carefully prescribed to avoid injury and be the right mix of volume and intensity to assist maximum fat loss. The nutrition is the type of eating that can be carried out life-long, being really healthy without the calorie restriction or supplementation seen in lots of other programs. “If you or anyone you know would like to get into the best health and shape of your life, then feel free to drop into our club today or send us a call or email at Club Exec.” Club Exec is on the corner of Clare and Corio streets in the Geelong CBD 5221 1400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sports groups wanted for community expo BY TIFFANY PILCHER
THE Wyndham Resort Torquay is calling on local sporting groups to be a part of their first Community Sports and Activities Expo to be held on August 10. The expo is set to promote the health and wellbeing of children on the Surf Coast, and a limited number of spaces are still available for local sports and activities groups to show off everything they have to offer. There are also spaces available for groups to hold a performance to demonstrate their skills. “This will be a great opportunity to promote your organisation, and network with the public and other sports and activities groups within your local community,” Wyndham
Public forum to discuss use of 1080 animal bait
Resort Torquay conference, events and reservations agent Jenny Cooper said. “It’s also a great opportunity for local families to get involved in some fun activities on the day and to learn more about the huge array of sports and activities that are on offer on the Surf Coast, continuing to encourage healthy active lifestyles for our children. “We are really excited about the quality of businesses who have signed up so far, we have a good variety of groups exhibiting.” The event is supported by the Surf Coast Shire, and mayor Rose Hodge will open the event. Public entry to the expo will be free. Community sporting and activity groups who would like to be involved are asked to contact Jenny on 5261 1500 or email@example.com.

THE Animal Justice Party (AJP) is holding a forum in Belmont this Sunday as parts of its efforts to ban the 1080 pest animal bait. The event will be the second of three public forums organised by the political party. AJP western regional co-ordinator Andy Meddick said the widespread use of 1080 was an “urgent animal welfare and public health issue”. “1080 has been used, and is continuing to be used, in many areas around Geelong and the Surf Coast, including Anglesea Heath, Ocean Grove, Drysdale, Breamlea wetlands, Otway National Park and the Bellarine Rail Trail – all areas frequented by human beings and their pets. “The Department of Environment and Primary Industries, the body entrusted with (1080’s) regulation, will tell you it is used to protect native wildlife when it is absolutely known that there is no way to prevent native animals from either consuming the baits directly or falling victim through cross contamination.” Speakers at Sunday’s forum include Doctor Ernest Healey, a Victorian expert on the native dingo; animal rights lawyer Marilyn Nuske; and Professor Arian Wallach, winner of the Eureka Science Prize. The University of Newcastle’s Sally Hall will appear via Skype on an alternate method of control of pest species. Mr Meddick said South Barwon MP Andrew Katos, Bellarine MP Lisa Neville and Greens Upper House candidate Lloyd Davies had been invited. “At the conclusion of the forum, members of the public will be invited to ask questions and also tell the assembled of their own experiences of 1080. Indeed, this the key reason for organising this series of forums.” The event will be held at the South Barwon Community centre, 33 Mount Pleasant Road, Belmont, on Sunday from 2pm.

All Boord a stunning Fortune has favoured the prepared mind of an Ocean Grove film-maker and photographer, who captured beautiful images on film of whales playing in Port Phillip Bay over the weekend. JARROD Boord, working with South Bay Eco Adventures, got a call on Saturday morning that whales were in the bay and if he wanted some unique footage for a documentary he was making about the south of the bay, he should get to Queenscliff immediately. “I spoke to Mike Randall from South Bay Eco Adventures in Queenscliff a few weeks ago between waves when we saw each other in the Surf at 13th Beach. “I mentioned to him that I wanted to come out with him over winter and get some footage of whales. “We agreed that I would have all my cinematography equipment charged and packed ready to go as soon as he called. “On Saturday, at about 1pm, Mike called me and said there were two humpbacks coming through the heads. “We were on the boat within 20 minutes of the call and heading out in very challenging conditions.” While the sea may not have been as angry as an old man trying to take soup back at the deli, it was close. “The wind was blowing hard and there was a lot of chop, which made finding the whales difficult and filming them even harder. “Once we had located the whales, it was a case of trying guess where they were going to surface and have the camera ready and filming in that exact spot.
“I missed the first few breaches and they were only doing them every 15 minutes or so. “It was so disappointing to miss the first few, but then we got into position and I had a gut feeling that one was about to come out of the water, pointing the camera in that direction counteracting the swaying and rocking of the boat, trying to the keep the camera steady.
“ON SATURDAY, AT ABOUT 1PM, MIKE CALLED ME AND SAID THERE WERE TWO HUMPBACKS COMING THROUGH THE HEADS. WE WERE ON THE BOAT WITHIN 20 MINUTES OF THE CALL AND HEADING OUT IN VERY CHALLENGING CONDITIONS.” “The whale came flying out of the water, the best breach so far and it was perfectly in frame and shot in 200fps, slow motion. I’d got the shot!” Mr Boord said the footage will form part of his documentary on the southern part of Port Phillip Bay, which he is hopeful of finishing by the end of the year. To keep updated about the progress of the documentary, like his Facebook page (search for ‘Jarrod Boord Photography’). The spectacular footage had more than 1,200 views in the first 24 hours of being uploaded and well over 150 shares on various Facebook sites including Parks Victoria.

bay whale sequence “WE GOT INTO POSITION AND I HAD A GUT FEELING THAT ONE WAS ABOUT TO COME OUT OF THE WATER... THE WHALE CAME FLYING OUT OF THE WATER, THE BEST BREACH SO FAR AND IT WAS PERFECTLY IN FRAME AND SHOT” Mr Boord said Mike Randall ran eco tours from his boat, which he designed to handle rough conditions, from Queenscliff Harbour. “He has spent a lot of time on the water and has a keen eye for wildlife. His tours take people inside and outside the heads spotting wildlife from dolphins, killer whales, whales and birdlife. “You never know what you might see on his tours; a few weeks ago he even spotted a leatherback turtle, which is an incredibly rare sight in this region.” Mike Randall is planning some whale expeditions in coming weeks. Anyone interested should visit southbayecoadventures.com or phone him on 5258 4019.

Thrust, parry, riposte in Anglesea power debate Dear Editor, It may be appropriate to point out to Melva Stott (“Alternative air quality points”, Letters, June 5) that in the northern spring there have been times when Germany has been running on 75 per cent renewables and the spot price for coal-fired power dropped to zero, because there was no need for it. In India, the Narendra Modi government has pledged to harness solar power and develop offshore wind energy so as to provide electricity to every household. Last year, China built more renewable energy plants than those fuelled by coal, gas and nuclear power. These statements can be backed up by links to articles on Surf Coast Air Action’s Facebook page. While it is certainly positive that the writer suggests that she and others in town find themselves in good health, the medical research informing concerns about negative health impacts associated with coal-fired power and coal mining is robust and extremely concerning (medical literature can be found on the Surf Coast Air Action’s website). Alcoa’s data also indicates, for example, that although it’s approximately 10-times smaller than the notorious polluter Hazelwood, the Anglesea power station emits approximately three times the amount of sulphur dioxide (39 million kilograms per year) a dangerous respiratory irritant, to which there is no safe level of exposure. No SO2 scrubbing technology is used to minimise this harm, despite their required use in the company’s native America. It’s time for the state government to step in and support Alcoa in a responsible shut down and rehabilitation of this site. Alcoa must also treat its workers fairly and, as they are doing for Point Henry staff, fund training to enable a transition to alternative employment. Julie Dingle Anglesea

It’s a dog of a beach Dear Editor,
Dear Editor, Perhaps the police could help us by patrolling our streets and manning the police station in Torquay. Of course it’s a soft target (“Drive-by Looting”, Surf Coast Times, June 5) when there are no police to deter these “visitors”. Imagine what Corio would be like if the same police presence was applied. Geelong has a shocking reputation for theft and violence because of lack of police presence. I don’t care what Ken Lay says; police on patrol deters criminals and their activities. Glen Leighton Torquay
An apology from Red Cross to the Torquay Lions Club Dear Editor, I am not too good at getting my facts right! I wrote from Red Cross Calling thanking everyone for their help and especially thanked Torquay Rotary (“Local Red Cross thanks”, June 5). I should have thanked Torquay Lions. This is a bad mistake when I remember the length of time during which the Torquay Lions have helped us. I note too that there would be very little door-knocking if it wasn’t for their hard work. I felt a public apology was necessary to ensure the Torquay Lions are recognised for the work they do. Carol Richardson Chairman Red Cross Calling Zone 6
Dear Editor, The Napthine Government is delivering better services for our children. Recently, I had the honour of joining with the Minister for Children and Early Childhood Development, Wendy Lovell, to announce a $1.6 million investment in the development of the new Torquay North Family and Children’s Centre. This grant is part of an $8.65 million investment, which includes $3.8 million from the Surf Coast Shire. It will provide local families with 90 long day care places, 88 places for four-year-olds and 66 places for three-year-olds, alongside other children’s services such as maternal and child health. This is great news for families on the Surf Coast and demonstrates what can be done when state and local governments work together with the local community. This capital grant is part of the Coalition
at the Nauru centre and it is a harsh punishment of so many who have fled persecution and risked a dangerous boat journey in the hope of freedom in our country that believes in “a fair go” for all.
Positive asylum seeker stance from Colac Otway Dear Editor, Many of this paper’s readers will be delighted to read that the Colac Otway Shire joined with the Yarra City to present a motion at the Municipal Association of Victoria’s (MAV) annual state meeting (“Shire’s asylum seeker motion wins MAV support”, June 12). The motion, which gained majority support, amounts to Victorian councils calling upon the Abbott federal government to abandon its present harsh stance against asylum seekers for a more just and compassionate approach. I have worked for the past year with refugees
My three friends and I recently came to Torquay for a three-day break from Bendigo and surrounds. Two of us have children and grandchildren living in Torquay. We were staying at the Wyndham Resort, which was lovely. We were amazed and shocked at the number of dogs running free on the beach in all the areas we visited, including Whites Beach and Fishermans Beach. We struck some sunny days so decided on a picnic on the sand with the grandchildren on one of the days. We were constantly harassed and scared by dogs trampling through our group, bowling over one toddler and generally making the whole experience unpleasant. We had to be constantly on guard in case of injury to the children, as in my experience not all dogs are friendly. Apart from that, this was not at all a pleasant experience. Some owners were totally oblivious to us and allowed this to happen, with not so much as a sorry. We were made to feel like we were intruding on their space. On later observing the shire map of areas available for dogs to run free, I was absolutely horrified and amazed that in the off season there is so much area devoted to people and their dogs running free. I want the shire to tell me: why they have allowed this to happen? It seems to me to be way out of balance. I realise the shire needs to allow for dog owners and their desire for a place to let their dogs off lead, but this could easily be done without making non-dog owners and families with young children limit themselves to Cosy Corner if they want a safe, enjoyable experience. My friends and I have nothing against dogs and some of us own them but we do not believe that the beaches in Torquay should be overrun with them, especially off lead. The worst part of all this is that it is only a matter of time before a child is bitten by an out-of-control dog. Another thing we noticed was around the streets there was an excessive amount of dog faeces, which is just appalling, especially in a tourist town. In my area of Bendigo, we aren’t lucky enough to have beaches but we can go freely anywhere we like (except for a small handful of designated offlead dog parks) without the fear of being harassed by dogs. In Torquay, we can’t. Your magnificent area is being overrun by dogs and the shire has its head in the sand. Catherine Farmer Bendigo

Regional Australia needs a health champion Dear Editor As the Shadow Minister responsible for rural and regional health policy, I was shocked to learn that no modelling has been done on the impact that the Abbott Government’s GP tax will have on health outcomes for rural and regional patients. Their health policies are blind to the needs of regional Australia. There is nothing to address the lack of doctors, nurses and health professionals. Nothing to address the problem of lower access to GPs in regional communities, or the higher incidence of chronic disease. Instead we get a GP Tax, increased cost of medicines, higher health insurance premiums and more than $50 billion dollars of cuts to hospital funding. These will make matters worse. The Abbott Government’s plans will hit regional communities hardest where almost 80 per cent of GP visits are bulk billed. The simple fact is GPs in regional areas can’t absorb the cuts to the Medicare rebates in the way big practices in metropolitan centres can. The GP tax, opposed by every health organisation in the country, will cost regional communities $1.4 billion over the next four years. Rural Doctors Association president Dr Ian Kamerman says this will mean rural doctors face a tough choice – force more of their struggling patients to make the co-payment, or treat more of their patients free of charge and put more pressure on their practice’s viability. In government, Labor tackled the big problems. We invested in preventative health, provided an extra $20 billion for Australia’s public hospitals and built 26 regional cancer centres for the best quality care closer to home. We doubled the number of GP training places and incentivised bulk billing, increasing it to historic levels, so more Australians than ever had access to a GP without any upfront fees. Before the election, Tony Abbott promised there would be “no cuts to health.”
Letters He does not have a mandate to end bulk billing and destroy Medicare. Before the election, the Nationals’ promised to appoint a Minister for Regional and Rural Health, so that the needs of people in regional Australia could be championed. Sadly, this is not the case under and Abbott Government either. Regional Australians deserve a minister who will really champion their needs. They shouldn’t have to pay for Tony Abbott’s lies. Labor will fight this GP tax. Labor created Medicare and we will always fight to ensure that people in rural and regional Australia get the healthcare they need, not the healthcare they can afford. Stephen Jones Regional health spokesperson for the Labor Party
Putting an ear to the Ocean Grove sound shell Dear Editor I write in response to Colin Atkin’s letter “Years of commitment to Ocean Grove Park” (June 12). I have lived in Ocean Grove, near the park, for two years. I visit it almost daily. I take my three-year-old grandson to the playground, we ride our bikes round and round in blissful safety, I walk my dogs, take a pleasant stroll as I cut through to the library or shops. But the downside of living near the park is that base sound waves from music events held there actually make my couch vibrate, sound levels in my house and garden are intolerable, I have trouble accessing my own driveway when large events are in progress due to thoughtless parking, and local streets are positively dangerous with children running from cars, prams and toddlers mixing with vehicles in a street too narrow to take event parking. I’m really not interested in what the legal requirements about sound and traffic control were, and whether they were fulfilled or not. The fact remains that a performance space will detrimentally affect my enjoyment of the natural
environment of the park and the way I live my life in my own home. It will not affect residents who do not live close to the park, and it appears some who favour the building, but live a distance away, have no understanding or sympathy for those who do. If one needs to make a financial or time donation to the Park Association, and be a member of at least 15 years’ standing before expressing an opinion, this should be stated on the application form. I joined in response to a claim by Cr Jan Farrell that “The park committee and its volunteers [are] unable to continue to maintain and manage the park to its current standard” and to stop it being “donated” to the City of Greater Geelong (COGG). I was due to help at the sausage sizzle stall at the May car boot sale, but the event was cancelled due to inclement weather. I do not believe estimated running costs (insurance, electricity, cleaning etc) are “commercial-inconfidence”. We have no estimate. The park website suggests the committee of management might consist of a representative from COGG and Trust for Nature. Have they been asked? What was their response? Who will be responsible for bookings, decide hiring costs and be the recipient of complaints should hirers not comply with noise regulations? These are some of the financial and management questions still not answered. I totally understand that the association has transformed the park from a neglected paddock to a delightful and well-used passive and environmentally charming space. That is why I object to adding a $1 million building with commercial potential and apparently no plan to stop that commercial usage and development in the future. I also understand that much hard work has gone into this building. Unfortunately hard work does not, ipso facto, make the building a desirable, sensitive or appropriate addition. I am not suggesting any change to the existing park usage for Christmas carols, Tranquility Fair and other park fundraising activities, but there is a limit to the human usage a natural environment can take. I believe my existing enjoyment and usage, willingness to contribute and the proximity of my
home to the park give me at least as much right to an opinion as those who do not live anywhere near it, do not use it on a regular basis and will be totally unaffected by noise from the sound shell and associated building. Gail Macrae Ocean Grove Park Association member
The therapeutic value of men’s sheds Dear Editor, The Napthine Government is building and improving men’s sheds across Victoria. Recently, I had the honour of joining with South Barwon MP Andrew Katos, when he opened a new shed at the Cole Street Reserve in St Leonards. The new shed was made possible through the generous support of the local community, the City of Greater Geelong and funding of $100,000 from the Napthine government. The St Leonards site includes the new men’s shed, as well as the existing facilities provided by the Bellarine Sharks Soccer Club and the St Leonards Cricket Club. This incorporates two disability accessible public toilets and workshop areas, as well as better changing rooms and an umpires’ room for the sporting clubs. In April, a grant round of $500,000 was announced to refurbish existing men’s sheds, adding to the $2.2 million announced earlier this year to build another 41 new sheds across Victoria. Applications are open until June 27. The Napthine Government believes in the therapeutic value of men’s sheds and the vital role they play in building stronger communities across the Bellarine.

Leukaemia Foundation thanks Dear Editor, The Leukaemia Foundation would like to thank the readers of your publication for participating in and donating to the World’s Greatest Shave in 2014. The generosity of Victorians never ceases to amaze us. The Leukaemia Foundation is dedicated to the care and cure of people living with blood cancer and related blood disorders and their families. It receives no ongoing government funding and relies on community support and campaigns such as the World’s Greatest Shave to fund its important work. Many inspiring people have participated in the World’s Greatest Shave, including Cooper, who was diagnosed with Aplastic Anaemia in 2013. Cooper had a bone marrow transplant at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne and was kept in isolation as a result of his condition. The Leukaemia Foundation supported Cooper’s family by providing accommodation for them close to the Children’s Hospital and ongoing emotional support for the entire family. Since returning home and being back into the swing of a normal routine, Cooper decided to take part in the World’s Greatest Shave. He wanted to thank the Leukaemia Foundation for their support during his treatment and help raise funds for other
children who are living with blood cancer. Cooper smashed his $15,000 goal and raised a whopping $22,882 in total. In Victoria alone, 3,000 people are expected to be diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or a related blood disorder each year. Money raised helps provide a range of services for patients and families and also funds important ongoing blood cancer research. Research is improving survival rates, but blood cancer is still Australia’s biggest cancer killer after lung cancer, claiming a life every two hours. Any readers wishing to support Cooper’s fundraising activities can still do so by making a donation to the World’s Greatest Shave. Head to worldsgreatestshave.com or phone 1800 500 088. The money raised will enable the Leukaemia Foundation to continue to provide essential support services such as accommodation for regional Victorians needing to relocate to Melbourne for treatment, transport to and from hospital, education, information and practical support. These support services are provided free of charge to Victorian families. Thank you for supporting the Leukaemia Foundation World’s Greatest Shave 2014 – we are in awe of your generosity and could not have done it without you.
Historical society looks to digitise its stories
Stephanie Hechenberger Leukaemia Foundation Victoria general manager
124 Burdoo Dr GROVEDALE
BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Torquay and District Historical Society will use a state government grant to digitally preserve the most important items in its collection. The group received $6,400 in funding through the Local History Grants program earlier this month. Society member Cheryl Baulsh said several online database options were examined and discarded as too expensive, until the society came across the free Virtual Collections program run by Museum Victoria. “Not only will it give us an internal inventory, it will also give us an online presence. It’s a fantastic program.” The grant will pay for computer equipment, photography equipment, software and archival materials. The society will not upload images of its entire collection, instead prioritising original items, but will also keep a local record of its most significant local memorabilia. Society vice-president Chris Barr believed the extra funding may encourage more Torquay residents to share their stories and artefacts. She said there was a wealth of important historical items in Torquay homes “and sometimes they’re very hesitant to let us have it”. “Now we’ll be able to say ‘why don’t you bring it here (to the society’s building in Price Street) and we’ll digitise it?’.” South Barwon MP Andrew Katos

Steps reps for young Australians
Sam Maffett training to run 50 reps of the Steps/ Boobs beach access stairs next Thursday to raise money for the Kokoda Youth Foundation.
BY TIFFANY PILCHER ANGLESEA ultramarathon runner Sam Maffett is taking on what may be his most difficult physical challenge yet to raise money to assist underprivileged youth. Next Thursday, he will run the arduous Steps and Boobs surf break beach access stairs 50 times in one session for his Reps at Steps Challenge while raising money for the Kokoda Youth Foundation. The challenge will comprise approximately 32 kilometres, 11,800 steps, 2.5 vertical kilometres in elevation gain and if all goes well, about five hours of continuous steps. “There is no doubt that it’s going to be pretty tough, but I also think it’s achievable,” Mr Maffett said. “I run on the steps for training a fair bit and have done five to 10 reps in the past but 50 reps will take it to a whole other level.”
He is raising the money as part of his preparation for The Kokoda Challenge, a 96-kilometre ultramarathon on the Gold Coast, which is organised by the foundation and will be held in July. The Kokoda Youth Foundation works with young Australians to help to break cycles of dependence and welfare, address mental health issues, work on suicide prevention, and develop core values of courage, endurance, mateship and sacrifice. Mr Maffett said he was looking forward to taking part in a new challenge while assisting a worthy cause. “It’s a really big event that goes through some beautiful hinterland, and the money really helps out kids in need so I’m excited to be a part of it.” Donation towards the Reps at Steps Challenge and the Kokoda Youth Foundation can be made at kokodachallenge.com/team-profile/ngss-8254.
New charity to help the children of Brazil BY JAMES TAYLOR THE World Cup has kicked off and while it is an exciting time for Brazil, it will also tragically mean an increase in child trafficking. A group of Geelong locals have set up a new Australian charity called A2B (Australia to Brazil), which will launch next month. The charity aims to raise awareness of the injustice that occurs in Brazil and other countries, including mass poverty and child exploitation. It will also raise financial support for Brazilian
projects that work with children living in situations of risk, run by two non-government organisations. The first, Meninadanca, is an international movement committed to ending the sexual exploitation of children along Brazil’s motorways. The other, Pedra Viva, is a day program based near a favela (slum area) in Belo Horizonte. Both day programs provide a safe and supporting place for children living in situations of severe risk, to come in from off the streets or from situations of risk. Learning dance and music, studying, and with
trained and caring staff, the girls can start to get help and address their issues and trauma to improve their well-being and life opportunities. The A2B launch will be held at Empire Grill on July 25 from 7pm, and will feature live entertainment, Brazilian performances, Brazilianinspired tapas, and a silent auction. Tickets are $35 per person. To book, head to a2blaunch.iwannaticket. com.au or phone Kristy on 0408 418 468. For more information on A2B, head to their Facebook page at facebook.com/a2bsupport.

The future of sheep production is in DNA BY DEAN WEBSTER NEW DNA-based parentage tests have been used by agricultural students and the experience gained will place cutting edge technology in the toolkit of future sheep producers. With the support of the Cooperative Research Centre for Sheep Industry Innovation (Sheep CRC), year 11 agricultural students have tested their flock of White Suffolks to ascertain full pedigree data as part of their studies and in preparation for their annual ram sale that takes place in September. Having identified the best lambs from this year’s crop, the students have used the more accurate parentage tests to identify the best performing sires from their group mating program. This additional information will allow the students to identify breeding stock with the right traits and performance for their White Suffolk stud flock. Teacher Darren Smith said he had been thoroughly impressed with the diligence his students have shown in carrying out the “full pedigree” parentage testing over the past eight months. “This DNA parentage trial will allow the students, who also undertook the time-honoured practice of recording ewe and lambs at birth, to gain confidence in the validity of the DNA test and significant labour and cost savings that it offers,” he said. “I’m fully confident that once we get the tests back, the conventional measures used by the students will match the DNA tests.” Operating as part of the federal Department of Industry’s CRC program, the Sheep CRC is a collaboration of industry, government and the commercial sector. It is working to increase the productivity and
profitability of the industry through adoption of new technologies in both the meat and wool supply chains. The Sheep CRC developed the DNA parentage test, which costs producers just $17/head, to advance the speed of genetic improvement in the national flock, by helping to identify the most productive breeding stock more accurately. Agriculture student Angus Wolfgang-Wicks said that he had improved his personal confidence in making breeding decisions by partaking in the exercise, and can now see the benefit DNA testing will provide consumers in the future. “It’s really beneficial to have this experience using very new technology when you’re young; it will give me a lot of confidence going into the workforce, regardless of my chosen field,” he said. More information is available from sheepcrc. com.au.

Compost preparation on a Connewarre farm
Winchelsea feed your soil workshop THE number and range of organic soil amendments such as manures, compost, biosolids and biochar products that are available for agricultural use has increased markedly over the last decade. To help producers with this issue, the Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) and the Corangamite Catchment Management (CMA) are holding a workshop in Winchelsea. The event aims to assist farmers with the selection and effective use of these products in cropping and grazing enterprises. It will include a presentation by Queensland University of Technology researcher in organics recycling Johannes Biala. Johannes has extensive experience and expertise in all aspects of organics recycling, including the sourcing, processing and benefit aspects of organics recycling, and the sourcing, processing and beneficial use of organic
materials. Topics to be covered at the workshop include: • Organic amendments: what are they and how they work, costs and local availability • What to consider when incorporating organic amendments into an overall soil fertility management program • How to select products, what can go wrong and how to avoid problems • Application rates, spreading equipment and costs • Existing demonstration sites and future directions for research and extension. The workshop is on June 26 between 9.30am to 3pm (lunch provided) at Winchelsea Community Hub, Eastern Reserve, 70 Hopkins Street, Winchelsea. The event is free, but if you wish to attend, RSVP for catering purposes. Phone Glenda Jackson at DEPI Geelong on 5226 4722.

Cattle market report BY DEAN WEBSTER THIS week’s yarding of 499 cattle at Ballarat was up 113 on the previous sale due to last week’s public holiday. It was an inconsistent market with young cattle most affected, followed by cows. There was mixed selection that contained many poor to plain quality cattle. One or two extra buyers attended though not all operated on the 187 steers, 165 heifers, 112 cows and 35 bulls. Restockers purchased most of the young cattle penning, which was mostly in plain to store condition. Overall the prices were dearer than two weeks ago but they did range from 10 cents lower to 20 cents per kilogram higher, with the price gap even wider than this at times within the same weight and quality. The C2 and few C3 yearlings sold from 144 cents to 185 cents with the odd vealers from 155 cents to 170 cents per kilogram. Restockers paid to 192 cents to secure vealers and to 189 cents per kilogram for their yearlings. The D2 yearlings to processors and restockers mainly ranged between 110 cents and 155 cents with several sales to restockers up to 180 cents per kilogram. There was another small, plain to good quality yarding of C3 and C4 grown steers and they sold equal to a little cheaper at 169 cents to 177 cents per kilogram. The grown heifers on the other hand were dearer with an average of 12 cents per kilogram added to the prices of their 3 to 5 scores. Most were between 145 cents and 165 cents with a single sale at 170 cents per kilogram.
Last week’s Colac yarding 364 cattle was only slightly down on the previous sale. Prices varied in a mainly plain to average quality selection that sold to a near-usual following of buyers. Competition was a little restricted at times with limited bidding but generally the better quality cattle sold to the best demand. The similar sized yarding comprised of 64 grown steers, 44 grown heifers, 89 young cattle, 153 cows and 14 bulls. The odd few average to better quality C2 and C3 young cattle sold at firm rates, while the plainer
quality 1 and 2 scores averaged 10 cents per kilogram cheaper. Most C2 and C3 yearlings to restockers and processors were between 150 cents and 185 cents, while the vealer portion made from 170 cents to 190 cents and topped at 215 cents per kilogram. Most C3 and C4 heavy steers and bullocks sold between 185 cents and 190 cents to be 10 cents per kilogram cheaper. Grown heifers were mainly C2 and C3 grades that made 135 cents to 158 cents, with a top sale at 176 cents per kilogram and prices varied from mainly 10 cents lower, to firm for the top sale.

What’s in the sheep genome? Wool see AFTER eight years of work, researchers have completed the first sequencing of the entire sheep genome. Scientists from CSIRO led an international research team to complete the sequencing, which could lead to more effective breeding strategies and new approaches to the management of sheep in Australia and around the world. With about 70 million head of sheep in Australia and 1 billion globally, the sequencing of the genome could have a massive impact for the rural economy given that sheep are a major source of meat, milk and wool products. “We investigated the completed genome to determine which genes are present in a process called gene annotation, which resulted in an advanced understanding of the genes involved in making sheep the unique animals that they are,” CSIRO project leader Dr Brian Dalrymple said. “Given the importance of wool production, we focused on which genes were likely to be involved in producing wool. We identified a new pathway for the metabolism of lipid in sheep skin, which may play a role in both the development of wool and in the efficient production of wool grease (lanolin).” Another key finding from the study involved the rumen, which is a modified stomach full of micro-organisms vital for the digestion of a sheep’s diet. The rumen is essential for sheep to convert hard-to-digest plant material into animal protein, and is differentiated from the true stomach by its keratin-rich surface, which is very similar to skin. Sheep are also an important biomedical model, particularly in Australia.

Travis Boak gives thumbs up to DraftStar BY JAMES TAYLOR A HIGH-performance footy program for young athletes that will visit Torquay next month has been given the thumbs up by one of the townâ€™s football heroes. DraftStar has run its AFL-endorsed program for more than 5,000 players between 11 and 17 across the country. The one-day session at the Torquay Football Club on July 11 combines top-level training drills and leadership exercises developed by ex-Hawthorn players Robbie Campbell and Ben Dixon, in conjunction with two modern AFL champions â€“ Essendon captain Jobe Watson and Richmond's Brett Deledio. Port Adelaide midfielder and local Torquay boy Travis Boak is also a DraftStar ambassador, and said it would be great to see the program come to Torquay. He said the session was for anyone who had serious ambitions about making it to the top level of football. â€œThe stuff you train in at the AFL is very different. â€œThis is for people who have the basic skills and know everything, but itâ€™s about taking it to the next level. â€œA lot of kids want to play AFL and not everyone gets to do that, but this is a chance for these kids to have a real crack at it.â€? Boak said the leadership drills in the session would be particularly useful for young players. â€œNot too many kids at that age would be exposed to that. â€œThe amount of work AFL players do with psychologists is huge; it really is a mental game. So for these kids to learn some of that, itâ€™s amazing.â€? Other AFL ambassadors of the DraftStar program include Geelong captain Joel Selwood, Collingwoodâ€™s Scott Pendlebury and Hawthornâ€™s Cyril Rioli. For more information on the Torquay session, head to draftstar.com.au, email firstname.lastname@example.org. au or phone 9020 5655.

news 35 Pot Luck brings in longer days
Thursday 19 June 2014
BY TIFFANY PILCHER
Tyler Lunn is one of the acts performing at the Deans Marsh Winter Solstice Mid-Winter Gathering this weekend.
THE Barwon Heads Sustainability Group, in conjunction with the Barwon Heads Community Arts Garden, is hosting a Winter Solstice Pot Luck Dinner this weekend to welcome the longer days ahead. The two groups are inviting all members and nonmembers to come along and bring some drinks and a dish to share. The dish can be savoury or sweet, and they’re encouraging everyone to include at least one ingredient that is home-grown or locally sourced. “We’ll celebrate lighter times ahead and it’s a great way to meet local people with environmental interests while enjoying lovely homemade food,” Sustainability Group member Margot Busch said. “Everyone is welcome, especially if you haven’t been to something like this before, and it’s sure to
be a lovely evening as long as the rain stays away.” Ms Busch said it would provide the opportunity to showcase locally-grown produce and bring local people together. “At previous Pot Luck dinners, if we had 50 people, we had 50 different dishes; there’s always such a variety. “People love sharing their tips on growing and their interests in the local environment so it’s a great way to gather everyone together for an enjoyable night.” The Pot Luck Dinner will be held on Saturday at 6pm at the Barwon Heads Community Garden, 38 Geelong Road, Barwon Heads. Bring a copy of your recipe, including local ingredients for the groups to add to their local produce book. For further information, phone Margot on 0411 232 297.
Deans Marsh to mark Winter Solstice BY TIFFANY PILCHER
FIRE twirlers and lanterns will light up a winter village of caravans and tents Deans Marsh on Saturday night for the Winter Solstice MidWinter Gathering. The free family event will begin at Deans Marsh Primary School with the lighting of a bonfire, fire twirlers and lantern parade. Throughout the night, there will be plenty on offer with warm wintery dishes, children’s activities, a drumming workshop, and entertainment from local musicians. “It gives the community a reason to come out in the middle of winter, enjoy warm winter food and while listening to great music with family and friends,” organiser Donna Nolan said. “Local primary school children are busy working on lanterns for a parade to open the event, and Timboon metal sculpture artist Jon Hayes has created a fire-blowing dragon sure to
keep festival-goers warm. “Kids can have a go at the art of shadow puppetry and make some lanterns to take home.” Beeac singer-songwriter Kate Wilson is one of the artists set to perform. The promising folk singer with a slight punk edge has spent last six months working on her first album in Boston, Massachusetts. Regular performer Tyler Lunn will also take the stage with his original songs and a wide range of covers. The Deans Marsh Winter Solstice Mid-Winter Gathering will take place at Deans Marsh Primary School and Deans Marsh Reserve on Saturday from 5-9pm. The event is BYO alcohol, and those attending are asked to rug up and bring family and friends to enjoy the night. In Torquay, Danawa Community Garden is also holding a Winter Solstice Bonfire on Sunday June 22 from 5pm to 7pm. BYO blanket, chairs and sparkers. Entry is free.

Community consulted on Tiger Trail extension COLAC Otway Shire is running a series of open house meetings about a proposal to extend the Tiger Rail Trail from Forrest to Birregurra. Consultants Transplan are examining the former railway corridor to see if the trail extension is physically possible. Open house meetings were held in Deans Marsh and Birregurra this week, and two more will be held today in Barwon Downs and Forrest. Shire recreation, arts and culture manager Ian Seuren said the feasibility study would examine first and foremost if an alignment could be found, and then determine the costs and issues in establishing a complete rail trail from Forrest to Birregurra. “It will also examine the economic and health benefits that may be enjoyed by local people and businesses, should the trail prove feasible. “One of the main tasks undertaken to date is establishing what parts of the former railway corridor are now in private ownership and what parts remain in public ownership. “It is now clear that a substantial length of the corridor is in private ownership, meaning that other alignment options need to be examined.” Field work has been undertaken and possible alternative routes are being assessed. “We’ve also had discussions with some landowners along the original rail corridor.” Mr Seuren invited all those who were interested in the affected communities to meet with the consultants and discuss their views. “It’s important that we hear from the people who may use or benefit from a trail and/or landowners adjacent to the former rail alignment.” It is hoped that a draft feasibility report will be submitted in August, and a final report will be completed by December. The open house meetings will be held today at the Barwon Downs Hall at 1,605 Birregurra-Forrest Road at 14 Grant Street between 9am-noon and the Forrest Hall between 2-4pm.
An apple a day in Anglesea ANGLESEA Lionesses have continued their support for the children of the Primary School. Over the past years, the club has provided support for the school’s “Fruit Program” by sponsoring a term’s costs annually. Pupils are encouraged to think about their health and nutrition and, as such, have access to fresh fruit throughout the day. Anglesea Primary School principal Pamela Sandlant believed the program was an essential supplement for many children at the school.
Anglesea Fruitz has been the supplier for a number of years, delivering fresh each Monday, and donated the basket presented in the photo. School captains Freya Dess and Matthew Connell along with Ms Sandlant received the cheque for $500 for Term 2 from Lioness president Doreen Leeman. The students expressed their gratitude for the gift and their thanks for this year and past donations. The Lionesses are also continuing their support for the youth of the community, with donations
to the junior football and netball clubs as well as Foodlink for those less able to provide. In their annual distribution of funds, the Lionesses also helped sponsor a child to attend the Licola Wilderness Village over summer and donated to the Children’s Mobility Program for those suffering from cerebral palsy. If any women see this work as important, you are encouraged to be part of the Lionesses. The group meets monthly and anyone interested should phone Doreen Leeman on 5263 3270.

State government invests another $30 million to stop family violence
Rhonda Coffey, pictured with Parks Victoria regional director Chris Hardman, has received a Parks Victoria Kookaburra Award for her work associated with the Barwon Bluff Marine Sanctuary and the Barwon River Estuary.
THE state government has announced an additional $30 million over four years to protect and support women and children at high risk of family violence. The package includes the statewide expansion of the Strengthening Risk Management program that brings together police, the courts, family violence and family services to keep women and children at high risk of violence safe and hold dangerous perpetrators to account. South Barwon MP Andrew Katos said the Barwon region would benefit from a full-time worker to coordinate information sharing as well as providing practical support for women and children by linking them to the range of services they need. “It is imperative that family violence is addressed and those affected are supported in the local community.” Strengthening Risk Management will roll out across Victoria in all 17 Department of Human Services areas, after successful pilots in the Geelong and Hume regions.

Victory says onward... to Geelong BY JAMES TAYLOR THE A-League is making a road trip to Geelong, with Melbourne Victory signing to play three home games at Simonds Stadium over the next three years. The matches will be scheduled during the peak holiday season, when as many as 1.3 million people are expected to be based in the Geelong region. The first of the three will be on January 2 next year against Perth Glory. City of Greater Geelong (COGG) mayor Darryn
Lyons said the Victory was one of the top sides in the national competition, and he was excited to partner with them to host A-League soccer in Geelong. “We have been working very hard behind the scenes to attract more events at Simonds Stadium and today’s announcement is great example of what is achievable for our national standard stadium. “This is an historic announcement in that Melbourne Victory will be the first national team to schedule home games at Simonds Stadium other then the Geelong Cats.”
Simonds Stadium hosted an Asian Champions League round in February this year when Melbourne Victory took on Thailand’s Muangthong United. “This match drew greater crowd numbers in Geelong than equivalent matches at Melbourne venues – and was a great basis for council to negotiate the next stage of our partnership with Melbourne Victory,” Cr Lyons said. COGG deputy mayor Bruce Harwood said the city would continue to work with Melbourne Victory on more opportunities into the future.
“The three-game package creates a great platform for us to develop an ongoing relationship with Melbourne Victory. “Simonds Stadium is renowned for the quality of its playing surface and its sporting and spectator amenities – add to that the large soccer following here in Geelong and there is definitely potential to extend beyond the current contract.” COGG sport and recreation portfolio holder Cr John Irvine said the Victory would add a new chapter to the annals of Geelong’s historic stadium.
Villawood part of Cats fabric with 25th celebration AS A long-term sponsor and supporter of the Geelong Football Club, Villawood Properties was last week honoured on the Cats’ banner in their round 12 clash with Carlton. The banner paid homage to the developer, which this year celebrates 25 successful years of creating innovative communities Australia-wide. Villawood Properties executive director Rory Costelloe said that a partnership with the Geelong Football Club was only natural. “We’re passionate about the Geelong region and one of the most important things to this community is their mighty Cats. “We’ve built a strong relationship with the club and we’re very proud to feature on their banner. “Each year we hold a family fun day to kick off the season with the Cats, which has become a highlight for the community. This year fans had the opportunity to meet Billy Brownless, Stevie J, Corey Enright and Mark Blicavs, and Half Cat is regular feature at most of our community events in the region. “We also change our giant corten steel letters on
the Ring Road to read ‘Go Cats’ during the season to show our support.” Villawood Properties sponsors more than 70 charities, community groups and grass-roots sporting clubs across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria, and are known regionally for their Armstrong Creek and Leopold developments.

University of the Third Age looks to expand classes BY JAMES TAYLOR
Brian Bayley talks about the perils and pleasures of making wine at the last University of the Third Age “Occasional Lecture”. Photo: JAMES TAYLOR
THE University of the Third Age (U3A) has celebrated its first term of classes on the Surf Coast. The group has 135 people enrolled in its 16 courses, and has also held several “Occasional Lectures” on a variety of subjects. The most recent of these was at the Lions Village last Wednesday, where Brian Bayley gave a talk entitled “The Perils and Pleasure of a Hobby Vineyard”. U3A is a worldwide network of voluntary senior groups who share educational, recreational and social programs. Rosemary Faris, who is on the steering committee of the Surf Coast U3A, said the group was pleased with the way the classes had been received so far, and was asking Surf Coast residents to think about what other subjects they might like to study. As well as the Occasional Lectures, Surf Coast U3A offers a range of courses, including: • Calligraphy • Globalisation - current issues • Introduction to the tarot • Introduction to digital photography • Mandolin • Sogetsu Ikebana • Following their footsteps: Australians in World War I • French • Indonesian • Philosophy • Mindfulness and meditation for beginners, and • Shakespeare for fun. Membership is $40 and this entitles a member to attend as many courses as they like. Surf Coast U3A has also called for people to volunteer as a tutor in Torquay, Anglesea or Winchelsea. The group can be contacted through the website at surfcoast. org.au or by calling in at Spring Creek Community House – preferably on a Monday or Friday morning when someone from U3A will be in attendance.
Funds to help region turn trash to treasure VICTORIA’S waste and recycling sector has cleaned up with a $6.4 million state government investment to regional groups, including in Barwon South. The six new groups will begin their expanded responsibilities from August 1. Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith, who announced the funding last week, said the money would enable the groups to deliver regional waste and resource recovery plans, and
to assess and facilitate the construction of new infrastructure and services in these areas. “The formation of the regional waste and resource recovery groups delivers on the Coalition government’s commitment to support a more sophisticated approach to recycling and get the best outcomes for Victorians, while maintaining all existing employees and offices. “By delivering on this commitment, the
Napthine government has created a more effective and integrated waste management system that strengthens the Environment Protection Authority, Sustainability Victoria and now the regional waste and resource recovery groups.” The five other groups will be established in the Loddon Mallee, Central Grampians, Goulburn Valley, North East and Gippsland regions. He said the government had invested more than
$40 million in the waste and resource recovery industry in this term of government. “To support our commitment to the waste industry, this government created a 30-year vision to reduce our waste and get more value from our resources, outlined in our Getting Full Value waste and resource recovery plan.” For more information or to read the plan, head to depi.vic.gov.au/waste.

Help families find the sunny side of life THE Leukaemia Foundation is challenging people in regional Victoria to do sunflower-themed dares this month to raise funds and help bring sunshine to families facing a blood cancer diagnosis. The challenge comes as the Leukaemia Foundation prepares to stage Sunflower Dash events on June 29 in capital cities and other centres across Australia. The regional campaign launch encourages people to get sponsored to do a fun sunflower-themed dare, or to host a sunflower-inspired fundraiser in their local community. The foundation’s sunniest event draws on the vibrancy of the sunflower and is held at a time of year when for most Australians, the days have turned dark and cold. It is a metaphor for how important emotional support can be for those trying to cope with a life-threatening disease. “We’re asking people in regional Victoria to sign up and dare to wear a sunflower in a daring way. By getting sponsored for your sunny creativity, you’ll be raising funds and smiles to support local families,” Leukaemia Foundation Victoria general manager Stephanie Hechenberger said. “Money raised will be used to support emotional wellbeing through family counselling, face to face and telephone support, and a Blood Buddies program to pair newly diagnosed people with others on similar journey. “All services are provided free of charge and without ongoing government funding.” Sunflower Dares you could do in June to raise funds and smiles might be: • Hosting a community Sunflower Dash where people get sponsored to dash wearing sunflowers • Getting your footy or netball team to wear sunflowers to a match or training session • Having a “dare to wear” day at work or school (wearing silly costumes and adding sunflowers)
• Hosting a morning or afternoon tea, selling sunflower cookies or cupcakes • Getting a team together to form a conga line wearing sunflowers in your town square or shopping mall • Unexpectedly bursting into a sunny song in public place dressed as a big sunflower. Every day, 31 Australians are diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma. In acute cases, treatment can begin within 24 hours of diagnosis. For those living in regional areas, it can mean leaving work, school and family and relocating to the city, adding to the shock and emotional turmoil. The Leukaemia Foundation eases the burden on these families by providing home-away-from-home
accommodation, transport to and from hospital and other emotional and practical support. All of its services are provided to families completely free of charge. “Finding a sunny side to life can be hard when blood cancer shadows your days – it changes how you see yourself, your relationships with others and your enjoyment of life,” Ms Hechenberger said. “This inspired our Sunflower campaign. We chose the symbolic sunflower because even on a cloudy day, it turns towards the sun. It is a beautiful image that makes us think of all the families who have turned to the Leukaemia Foundation to get through the tough times.” To find out more, head to sunflowerdash.org.au/ dare or phone 1800 500 088.

The common cold versus the flu BY DR ERIN COFFEY ACCORDING to an Australian health fund, about 80,000 GP visits are due to the cold/ flu. Adults can expect to experience two to three colds a year, while school children as many as 12. The common cold can be caused by hundreds of different viruses, typically rhinovirus, and is an URTI (upper respiratory tract infection). It starts with a tickle in the throat and develops into a runny nose with congestion and general fatigue.
Within the first three days you are contagious, and it is your opportunity to use the “Doc says go home and put your feet up” reason for not going to work. You should progressively feel better and be over it within a week. If you aren’t better within a week, see your GP as you may have a bacterial or sinus infection. The flu (influenza virus) has similar symptoms to a cold, but they are more severe and also involve fever, chills, muscle aches and pains, and you will feel exhausted. You should start improving gradually over two to five days, but you will probably feel run down for a week, and the fatigue can last for a couple of weeks. For young and elderly people, the flu can
develop into pneumonia, and it’s important to see a GP if you experience shortness of breath or if your fever goes away but returns after a day or two. The influenza virus travels around the world and mutates from year to year, hence each year it’s possible to receive a flu vaccination. The vaccine is designed to immunise you against the most common seasonal flu viruses for that year, but it won’t protect you from all of them. Feel like you’re getting a cold or the flu? Stay at home and avoid contact with people during the contagious period of the virus. Antibiotics won’t help. Rest, stay hydrated and eat nutritious food. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Stay warm and let the virus take its course. Dr Erin Coffey is an osteopath at The Health Creation Centre in Ocean Grove.

Creativity adds colour to life BY BARBARA GRACE RECENTLY, I read an article that said French women had rediscovered the relaxing playfulness of “colouring in” to de-stress and detox the mind. If you’re a regular reader of this column, you’ll understand why I felt elated as I believe that creativity opens the door to living a more wholehearted life. Hectic schedules are demanding, and our “off” button can be hard to find at times – unless it’s found in a wine glass, a reality show or emotional
meltdowns. Yet carving space in hectic schedules to relax means putting yourself first and taking time to “massage your mind” away from deadlines and expectations that can numb fresh ideas and deplete mental and physical energy. We are all born as playful and creative individuals – it’s only when we’re told that we can’t sing, can’t draw, can’t dance and can’t write that the “fun” side of ourselves shuts down and replaces spontaneity with the business of being busy. Living life on a piece of string without a few creative twists and curls to vary the journey can leave us feeling bored. And what do many of us do when we’re running on empty and boredom feels like the norm? Look for distractions, dumb-down, zone out, disengage, switch off and tune out. Instead of giving ourselves what we need, we choose “dead-pan time” and become emotionally absent, intellectually cushioned and physically
and socially disengaged. Yet by nourishing creativity and respecting your expressions (which may not be any more advanced than the last time you touched coloured pencils or paint and brushes as a 10 year old), you have the perfect outlet for relaxation, stress minimisation, reconnection with personal meaning – and above all – the release of innate joy that erupts when you take a moment to revitalise your child-like playful self. So perhaps it’s time to get your colours out and indulge in some creative vitality and experience living more wholeheartedly. To check out the School of Modern Psychology’s latest program, Living Well, go to schoolofmodernpsychology.com.au/living-well and see for yourself what feeling more creative could do for you. Barbara Grace is the director of the School of Modern Psychology.
The escape artist – where do you go to relax, dream and be more connected to yourself?
Mentally healthy workplaces vital ALMOST half of Australian workers have left a job because it was mentally unhealthy, and workplace mental health is ranked second only to pay as the most important factor when choosing a new job, a new survey has shown. The researchers surveyed more than 1,000 Australian workers and found not only did they value mentally healthy workplaces above things such as workplace culture and commuting time, they will also leave a job if it impacts negatively on their mental health. The survey has been released as part of Heads
Up, an Australian-first campaign launched by beyondblue and the Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance last month. The campaign is encouraging business leaders to take action in the workplace on mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. Beyondblue chairman Jeff Kennett AC said the findings highlighted the growing need for employers to create mentally healthy workplaces in order to attract and retain staff. “If Australian businesses want to be employers of choice and attract and keep the best and most

talented people, they have to create mentally healthy workplaces,” he said. “This may seem obvious, but unfortunately too many workplaces still lack adequate mental health policies, which are the backbone of a workplace environment which supports the mental health of its staff.” The latest findings show that employers need to listen to their workers, or they will leave. It adds to a growing body of evidence, including a recent PricewaterhouseCoopers report, that shows if businesses are not investing in mental
health they are losing staff, productivity and money. “Not only is a mentally healthy workplace mindful of people’s workloads and the stressors they face, but staff with flexible working arrangements and who feel supported by their managers bring huge productivity gains for employers.” “All employers should go to headsup.org.au and learn what they need to do to help create a mentally healthy workplace and start reaping the benefits.” The survey was conducted by Instinct and Reason.

Chris Wilson and Sarah Carroll will sing the blues at the Torquay Bowls Club on Sunday.
Sunday blues at Torquay Bowls Club BY TIFFANY PILCHER
THE Torquay Bowls Club is set to host an afternoon of first-rate local music on Sunday with blues duo Chris Wilson and Sarah Carroll, and emerging folk rock act Murdena. Husband and wife team Wilson and Carroll are renowned for their immense talent as collaborative and solo artists. Wilson has been an essential part of blues and rock music scene in Australia since taking the stage with the Sole Twisters more than 20 years ago. Wilson is widely known as a master of blues harmonica, and has shared the stage with some of the world’s top acts, including Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, Billy Bragg, Paul Kelly, Crowded House and more. By the end of the 80s, he had made his mark as one of Australia’s finest vocalists, harmonica
players and writers as the frontman of the Crown of Thorns. His original songs are unique lyrical showcases for his passionate, powerful voice and he has just released a solo recording featuring his favourite blues songs, Live At Cherry. Carroll, once part of prominent Melbourne country band GIT, has spent the last eight years writing, recording and touring with The Junes, The Cartridge Family and her band the Psychedelic Wildmen. Her earthy, wry and heartfelt songs have rung out across the country as she travels with various groups, duos, trios and as a solo artist. Known as “The Ukulele Queen of the Bellarine”, she said she was influenced by “the harmonydrenched pop sounds of my childhood, the nutty new wave of my teens and the country rock and roll, blues, indigenous music and amazing Australian
sounds of my womanhood! Also, the soundtrack of A Mighty Wind.” Her latest album, Soft Gold, is a duo project with guitar master Marcel Borrack, which showcases their heartfelt harmonies and faultless rhythms. Wilson and Carroll met on stage, connected immediately and were married two years later. They share a deep love and respect for each other’s music and relish the rare occasions their busy solo careers allow them to perform together. This show will give audiences a glimpse at two of the region’s most talented performers and creative partnerships. Hailing from the Bellarine, Murdena will launch their highly-anticipated EP Ruby in Torquay on Sunday. Their sound combines toe-tapping country dance hall with urban blues and folk-rock, taking audiences from the hay bales of country Victoria to the slick
streets north of the Yarra. They are fast making a name for themselves, winning the Queenscliff Music festival Foot in the Door competition in 2012 and the Tamworth Music Festivals Battle of the Bands competition 2013. The promising band has gone from strength to strength, with a string of well-received festival appearances and support shows for Chris Wilson and the Pirates of Beer, Dyson Stringer Cloher, Jordie Lane and more. Chris Wilson and Sarah Carroll, along with Murdena, are performing at the Torquay Bowls Club on Sunday from 3pm. Each group will perform a set, followed by a third set combining all musicians. Bistro on the Green will be open for lunch and food will be available throughout the day. Tickets are available from trybooking.com/ EZMO.

SOME of the nation’s finest Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander entertainers are bringing their comedy, poetry, music and dance to Greater Geelong. Blak Cabaret artists will perform at the Potato Shed, Drysdale, at 4pm on June 29. Malthouse Theatre engagement officer and Blak Cabaret producer Jason Tamiru described the show as funny, moving, heart-warming and very entertaining. “Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people come from an oral history and Blak Cabaret plays to that strength,” Mr Tamiru said. The line-up for the Potato Shed performance includes legendary singer/songwriter Kutcha Edwards, who has performed at most major music festivals with both his own band and the renowned Black Arm Band, using music as a medium to tell the stories of today, and yesterday. The show will be MC’d by actor and director Kylie Belling, whose extensive work across theatre, film and television includes feature film The Sapphires (2012) and television series Redfern Now (2013). Australia’s own busking Black Elvis (Gnarnayarrahe Waitairie) will perform along with gum-leaf player Uncle Herb Patten, country pop singer Illana Atkinson, band man Peter Rotumah, contemporary musician Joe Geia, former So You Think You Can Dance hip hop dancer Nikki Ashby, comedian Kevin Kropinyeri, poet Dennis Fisher (Den the Fish) and actor Ian Michael. VicHealth chief executive officer Jerril Rechter said Blak Cabaret, which is funded under VicHealth’s Arts about Us program, took audiences on a heart-warming journey into our nation’s soul.
“It’s fantastic to see it on the road once more for this special performance in Drysdale.” Tickets are $25 ($20 concession) and are available from the Potato Shed – phone 5251 1998 – or at any City of Greater Geelong Customer Service Centre. A series of free community songwriting and hip hop workshops with Blak Cabaret artists will be held in the lead-up to the concert.

Scottish singing sensation Eddi Reader will perform at the final Anglesea Golf Club Roo Twilights this weekend.
BROUGHT TO YOU BY
Eddi Reader rounds out Roo Twilights BY TIFFANY PILCHER ANGLESEA Golf Club’s Roo Twilights series will wrap up this weekend with a stunning performance by Scottish songstress, Eddi Reader. Reader began her career travelling around Europe in the 1980s with circus and performance artists before moving to London and making her name touring with the Eurythmics and a string of her own successful bands. After turning solo, touring the world and releasing one revered album after another, she was awarded an MBE in 2006 for services to singing. In 2012, Reader toured Australia and sold out across the board where she captivated and enchanted audiences. She has effortlessly developed into one of popular music’s most thrilling and affecting performers
and her latest album, Vagabond, reveals her strong passion for her craft. “There’s an American songbook jazz flavour but there’s lots of folk roots within it because I’m a busker really,” Reader said. “A lot of my attraction to music goes through American standards coming then to the Scottish experience which is singing around the fire.” In 2014, she is delighted to be returning to Australia to perform in quartet mode, joined by, Boo Hewerdine, Alan Kelly and Ian Carr. The Eddi Reader Quartet will perform at the Anglesea Golf Club Roo Twilights on Saturday June 21. Dinner and show and show only tickets are available.

Much ado about merlot
IF YOU’VE ever watched the movie Sideways, a drama/ comedy based around Miles and his friend Jack’s week long wine, food and golf sojourn in California’s wine country, you’ll be familiar with Mile’s hatred of a muchloved humble grape variety – Merlot. In the oft quoted scene, Mile’s lets fly about Merlot: “No, if anybody orders Merlot, I’m leaving. I am NOT drinking any $%#@ing Merlot!” In the movie, he loved Pinot Noir, and spoke reverently of its haunting glories. His statement’s on Merlot in the movie saw sales of Merlot in the US drop 40 per cent! Sales of Pinot Noir went through the roof. Which leads me to the fact that I’ve been really surprised at the level of interest in Merlot at the moment, more so than usual. Maybe it’s the season? Pinot Noir, too, seems to garner a similar feeling at this time of year; I guess with the onset of autumn, it can make you look for a medium bodied red that’s soft, and comforting. There’s an earthiness and a plushness to these varieties that evokes this change in seasons. Merlot is grown in most parts of the world like Italy, Spain, Argentina, Chile, America, New Zealand and Australia, but its spiritual home is Bordeaux. Two distinct styles seem to define the variety, an international/new world style that is picked late to gain more ripeness and plushness, as opposed to the Bordeaux style where it is harvested earlier to emphasise acidity and structure in the wine. So, without further ado, here’s three Merlot’s to get to know.
Grant Burge “Hillcot” Barossa Merlot 2012 ($23) Grant Burge wines are much celebrated and renowned for their richness and robust flavours that are in keeping with the Barossa’s style, and the vines for this wine were planted back in 1980 so they’ve definitely got maturity on their side. However, I’ll be totally honest with you and

say that for me, this isn’t my style of Merlot. I know a great many that would love the richness of fruit at play here, with lashings of oak to boot. Big, bold, deep and ripe with definitive dark cherry and plum fruit flavours leading the charge, it’s certainly a substantial red for lovers of the style, showing more grip than softness on the finish.
Coldstream Hills Yarra Valley Merlot 2010 ($30) Merlot comes across as a temperamental variety in the valley, though all the examples I’ve seen over the years have been pretty good I must say. Dense, textured and fleshy yet still showing cool climate elegance and finesse, think briar/cherry fruits with black currant fleshy feel on the palate with a hint of vanilla and a tinge of stalky/ green notes on finish, but overall quite palate filling and flavoursome. Coldstream Hills winery was established in 1985 by James Halliday, yes the one and the same, he foresaw the potential of the Yarra Valley early on, going on to plant Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. All the wines produced are of a very high quality and the merlot is always an interesting wine, this latest vintage continuing the theme… click like.
Irvine ‘Springhill’ Barossa Merlot 2010 ($20) The “King of Merlot” James Irvine specialises in this variety and this “entry level” wine from their Springhill vineyard in Eden Valley is terrific value with tell-tale Barossa dark chocolate and cherry/berry notes on the nose with quite a concentrated, richly fruited palate showing plenty of texture and depth even if a bit one dimensional. However, I left it to watch over three nights and the palate had fleshed out with plump softness and generosity and more complexity.

THE Piping Hot Chicken shop has become a well-known institution in Ocean Grove. Owner Ben Chudoschnik said even in his old job as a sales rep when he used to tell people where he lived, the first words that came out of their mouths were “chips and gravy”. Ben said the shop had also featured in Vogue Italia for its impressive decor captured in a wedding photo and Delicious magazine for its food, so while people were raving about the business, they were also now reading about it. Ben and his wife Mikaela have owned the shop for about three years and recently changed its name to The Piping Hot Chicken and Burger Grill to reflect its move towards American style food. “In the past it’s just been roast chickens, chips or gravy, but it’s probably edging more now to American pork rolls, brisket rolls, chilly cheese fries and Buffalo wings,” Ben said. “It’s less like a chicken shop than it ever has been now.” Ben said it was an exciting time for the shop, with big name artists

comedy now with Austen Tayshus coming up – he is a pretty big name for our first comedy gig!” Ben said his fondest memory of owning the shop, which has been in Ocean Grove since the late 70s, was seeing the late Gil Askey perform. “He is a Motown legend who worked with all the big names like Diana Ross, Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder,” he said. “And we’ve also had a few other people here, like when the actor Jack Thompson popped up and played a set on the harmonica with a local band. “We have had so many amazing big names here.” Ben said the acts also loved performing at the shop because of the intimate setting. “The acts love playing here so they can hear the crowd and the crowd can hear everything going on stage too, because you are only like three metres away,” he said. “It’s a pretty good atmosphere.” Ben said he was looking forward to a very busy year ahead. “We will be booking more big name musicians and keep changing up the menu to keep it interesting.”

Art Unlimited farm food AT HOME unleashes at Boom Gallery with Tony Le Deux
BY TIFFANY PILCHER BOOM Gallery is presenting an exhibition of remarkable works by five artists from Geelong’s Art Unlimited studio. The exhibition, Not by Design, opens today and features artists Christian Den Besten, Susan Stripling, Adrian Segon, David Gillham and Julie Henrys. The Art Unlimited studio is a professional access studio for artists with a disability and is situated in the Old Geelong Gaol in Myers St, Geelong. The studio provides professional studio facilities and is staffed by qualified, practicing artists. The vitality and richness of the studio artist’s work is a result of the unique way each artist interprets their world. Artists are given full autonomy over the nature and subject matter of their work which has resulted
in the diverse collection of art on displayed at Boom Gallery. The artwork produced at Art Unlimited studio is generically known as “Outsider Art”. Outsider Art is a general term for the genre that covers art that sits outside of the commonly recognised cultural community, or work by people with a vision which departs from the mainstream. Another term used in Europe to describe this art form is “Raw Art” or “Art Brut”. The Not By Design collection is representative of the outstanding work produced at Art Unlimited and gives viewers an insight into the world of Outsider Art. Not By Design is on show at Boom Gallery, Rutland Street, Newtown from today until July 12. Opening drinks will be held tomorrow night from 5.30pm to 8pm.

A hearty way to make do I HAVE been environmentally programmed to abhor waste. All four of my grandparents were born early in the 20th century. Their respective birthdates meant they lived through two world wars, a depression and economic uncertainty. In particular, World War II must have had major impacts on their lives. The most obvious was losing family fighting in the war. Another more subtle and long lasting consequence of food and clothing shortages meant their generation was very conscious not to waste resources. The broad reasoning behind the introduction of rationing during World War II was to ensure the equitable distribution of food and clothing. It was also hoped that a cut on consumer spending would lead to an increase in savings, which in turn could be invested in war loans. Intuitively, this makes sense to me. In times of crisis, make do with less and employ scarce resources to fix your problem. In this case, to increase investment in the war effort. In today’s world the opposite tends to happen. When countries are in financial crisis instead of limiting valuable resources, they print more money to stimulate consumer spending and the resultant demand is supposed to fix the problem. This may make sense if the spending is directed towards major infrastructure projects or health and education, but not if the spending is directed to consumer goods that most of us could live without. Do we really need to replace our old television with the latest “bells and whistles” model every two years? Or worse still, have one in each room of the house? I have lost count of how many mobile phones our children have had. I purchased them but often feel guilty at the waste. My grandparents would turn over in their graves! Our customers are also concerned with this issue and tend to shop more regularly for fresher produce rather than filling a giant shopping trolley with goods they either don’t need or discard. At home, I have several recipes I employ when using food that may have accumulated during the week. At this time of year, buy a couple of lamb shanks from Torquay Farm Foods and throw them in a pot of water with your left over vegies. Add some tinned cannellini beans and a tin of diced tomatoes. This hearty soup will use your up left overs, warm your soul and ease the guilt of buying too many televisions! A World War 2 food ration book

Jazzy nights at Jack Rabbit Vineyard BY TIFFANY PILCHER JACK Rabbit vineyard is bringing jazz back to the Bellarine Peninsula with the return of their hugely popular Fireside Jazz series. Kicking things off this weekend, The Kym Dillon Swing Trio will perform on Saturday night from 7pm. Kym Dillon is an emerging composer, arranger, orchestrator, pianist and conductor, currently based in Melbourne and Geelong. Dillon has completed a Bachelor of Music Performance Honours in composition at the Victorian College of the Arts, and has worked with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
and local community choir, Geelong Sings. His original compositions have had an increasing focus over the years on the relationship between intuitive and systematic composition, and the relationship of the creator to the creation. Dillon will be joined by Zac Barter on bass and Nic Doncon on drums. Jack Rabbit’s general manager Lyndsay Sharp said food, wine and music are a match made in heaven. “Add to that a winter’s night and a blazing fire and I think it’s heading towards a perfect night out. “From all accounts Kym Dillon is talented
beyond his years and is earmarked as ‘red hot’ and the next ‘big thing’ in Australian jazz. “Also, the concept of a musical journey honouring and exploring the roots of swing and jazz is really appealing.” The Fireside Series performers have been handpicked by Jazz Australia principal Diana Allen, and the next performance will be on August 2 with Ian Smith and Friends. The three course dinner and show is $90 per person, drinks are at bar prices and numbers are limited. For bookings, call 5251 2223, or email email@example.com.
Kym Dillon is the first artist to be featured in the new Fireside Jazz series at Jack Rabbit Vineyard this winter.
Winged Unicorn reads loved literature BY TIFFANY PILCHER
Some of the works of celebrated Welsh poet and writer Dylan Thomas (pictured) will be read at the Theatre of the Winged Unicorn’s new production, Winter Dreaming.
SOME of the world’s most loved literary pieces will be brought to life in a reading presented by the Theatre of the Winged Unicorn at Barwon Park Mansion this weekend. Winter Dreaming will include readings from the works of Katherine Mansfield, Dylan Thomas and William Shakespeare, and the performance has been timed to coincide with Winter Solstice. Jocelyn Mackay will perform Welsh folk songs
linked to Thomas’ work, in celebration of his centenary birthday, Ben Mitchell will perform some of Shakespeare’s famous soliloquies and Amelia McBride Bake, Julie Fryman and Alard Pett will present a series of Katherine Mansfield’s short stories. “What connects them is quality and gifted writing which is rarely performed,” theatre director Elaine Mitchell said. “This sort of performance is very special to all involved because the work is so well loved
and valued, and the Winter Solstice seemed the perfect time to share something we are so passionate about.” Theatre of the Winged Unicorn does several major productions each year and will be presenting The Woman in White in October. Winter Dreaming will be presented at Barwon Park Mansion, Winchelsea on June 21 and 22 and at The Scarecrow Patch Studio at Ceres on June 28 and 29. For bookings, call 5249 1350, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

JUNE 19 - JUNE 26 2014 © Joanne Madeline Moore 2014
Many Rams will feel irritable and impatient on Wednesday, as Mars and Uranus stir up your restless side. Take particular care when driving and avoid blurting out things that upset others. Friday’s new moon is a magical time of beginnings and the promise of things to come. When dealing with a family issue, resist the urge to jump to hasty conclusions. Check the facts first.
Don’t fall into the trap of undervaluing or neglecting your numerous talents. This week the new moon and Neptune stimulate your Crab creativity, so it’s time to express yourself in a way that makes your heart sing. Be inspired by Carly Simon born on June 25: “There’s always a creative side to me, even when it’s quiet musically… like painting or decorating or planting a garden.”
If you are having problems, don’t assume others will automatically come running to the rescue. It’s time to be independent and inventive, as the planets encourage you to stand on your own two feet. With mighty Mars moving through Libra until July 26 your message for the moment is from blind and deaf birthday great Helen Keller: “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”
Expect volatility at work as deadlines shorten, pressure builds, and your patience wears thin. Attached Capricorns – find fresh ways to add passion and pizazz to your partnership. Singles – with Jupiter and the new moon in your relationship zone, love may strike while you’re travelling. Or you could find love closer to home, with someone who’s from a different country or culture.
Communication is the buzz word this week Bulls, as Venus, your ruling planet, visits chatty Gemini, and the new moon lights up your conversation zone. So take the time to talk with people in your local community and connect with like-minded souls via social media. You have many talents to offer – and much to learn. Sunday is super for social events and group activities.
Lions are restless! Slow your motor and cool your heels, before you do something that you regret. Dynamic communication will get you a lot further than disruptive behaviour. Aim to get the balance right between socialising with friends and acquaintances, and spending quality time on your own. For some Cats, quiet contemplation leads to a creative breakthrough.
Watch out for stubbornly holding a fixed position in your dealings with others. You’re not seeing the full picture, so be more flexible. The new moon activates your adventurous side, as you long for international interludes and exotic escapades. Connecting with overseas friends brings foreign shores closer, as you get out the travel brochures and plan a trip for some time soon.
Boredom is a big no-no this week as you search out unusual people, places and activities. Think outside the square. Perhaps an adventurous new hobby or an unusual creative project will satisfy your curiosity? But Wednesday’s Mars/Uranus opposition increases your impulsive side, and makes you more accident-prone than usual. So avoid rushing, and try to pace yourself!
Vivacious Venus gives you a much-needed confidence boost, as she vamps through your sign from June 23 until July 19 and you’re at your funny and flirtatious best. You’re keen to email, talk, text and tweet on Thursday, as the Gemini moon hooks up with media planet Mercury. Do you have to make an important decision? If you combine logic and intuition, you’ll know what to do.
Hey Virgo – Venus shifts into into your career zone, which brings some benefits … but Mercury is still in retrograde motion, so you’ll have to soldier through computer hitches and communication glitches at work up until July 1. In the meantime, shine a bright spotlight on your hopes and dreams for the future as you read, research, ponder, plan, discover and dream.
Have you been having relationship hassles? Archers can be an argumentative lot, as you have a talent for turning casual conversations into fiery debates. With Venus visiting your partnership zone until July 19 perhaps it’s time to bite your tongue, swallow your pride and hold out the olive branch of peace? It’s also a wonderful week to research a subject that has always fascinated you.
Friendly Fish are in the mood to mix and mingle to the max, as the new moon jump-starts your social side this week. Plus make sure you spend some quality time with a special child or have a long talk with a troubled teenager. Sunday’s sun/Neptune trine favours being extra creative and compassionate, as you express your artistic side and help someone in need.
Both Showgirls will be performing hot shows on the main stage. g

INTERNET ADDICTION – ARE YOU HOOKED? TALKING COMPUTERS WITH BRAD MCDERMOTT FROM TORQUAY COMPUTERS
p. 5261 2888 m. 0439 070 571 torquaycomputers.com.au
DO YOU find you need to log on as soon as you get up to check your Facebook status? Do you spend hour upon hour searching Google for that great deal on jousting sticks? Do you spend more time in the digital world than the real world? Well, you might have a case of (cue dramatic music) internet addiction! Everyone today seems to have their head buried in mobile phones, tablets or computer screens tapping away, so how would you know? If you are starting to neglect the everyday things in life like friends, family, work commitments, etc. then you might need to take a step back and assess. There are different types of internet addiction, each with its own set of problems. Some people spend hours playing online games; others want to keep shopping for that bargain that is just around
the corner (or just one click away). One of the biggies is social networking sites. I see it with my own kids how much time can go into these things; constantly checking messages and updating profiles. Maybe times are changing and we won’t really have real life friends any more or physical contact with people just an online presence. I think it is very healthy to spend a bit of time “off the grid” – maybe a weekend with everything off or even a night a week or maybe just a certain time every night. I will run it by my kids and get back to you. If you don’t see my column again, you know how that went. Experts seem to be divided on whether it is an actual mental disorder in its own right. If you think you are having problems, it’s best to see a trained doctor or psychologist. Read more at: betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcarticles.nsf/ pages/Internet_addiction.

THE POINT CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY
MOREMAC PROPERTY GROUP ADVISES THAT CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY IS ABOUT TO RECOMMENCE AT THE POINT. Construction of Stage 2B situated in the southern part of the site along Point Boulevard will commence in the next few days following a successful sales campaign over recent months. The works will involve construction of 17 new residential lots. A footpath is also to be constructed between Point Boulevard and Fellows Road along Shell Road to provide for improved pedestrian safety. There will be a relatively high number of truck movements occurring as surplus soil is stockpiled centrally within the site. A small area of vegetation will be removed in connection with the works. A permit was issued for this vegetation removal in 2011. All works are being implemented in accordance with the approved Project Environmental Management Plan and Construction Environmental Management Plan. The construction site will be fenced to prevent public access and members of the public are reminded that the entire site is private property and that public access is not permitted. Construction sites can be dangerous places and as such entry is not permitted without an induction in respect to site safety and environmental policies and procedures.
ANY ENQUIRIES MAY BE DIRECTED TO MOREMAC PROPERTY GROUP ON 9851 3300 OR BY EMAIL TO INFO@MOREMAC.COM.AU

Seagulls out-fly determined Roos BY JAMES TAYLOR BARWON Heads pulled away from a determined Anglesea to record their sixth victory in round 10 of the BFL. The Seagulls were only two points ahead at halftime, but held the Roos scoreless in the third quarter and eventually won by 11 points. Brandon backwell slotted four goals for Barwon Heads, while Joshua Bouwman kicked three for Anglesea. Queenscliff squared the ledger at five and five with a 39-point win over an inaccurate Drysdale. Coutas forward Daniel Degois kicked three goals, as did Hawks player Thomas Dewey. Modewarre was competitive in the first half

Surf Coast FC’s women’s team continues top form SURF Coast FC’s state league women’s team continued its top form, showing once again that they have what it takes to win under pressure as they took the three points from St Albans Soccer Club, winning 3-2 on Sunday. Up against a strong St Albans team, Surf Coast's Caitin Pickett didn't take long to score the opening goal. In defense, Lucy Razmara's tireless efforts continued to frustrate the opposition. St Albans landed a goal in the net from long range to even the scores at half time 1-1. Minnie Feakes goal after the half time break was soon answered by the home side coming from what seemed questionable proceedings, making way for an exciting final 20 minutes. The Surf Coast girls welcomed the challenge, defending hard and creating plenty of scoring opportunities with Sophie Razmara taking her chance in the 86th minute to cement the scores 3-2.

against Torquay, but Tigers forwards Ty Zantuck (seven goals) and Matthew Johnson (six) were too much for the Warriors defence, contributing nearly half their side’s goals in a 109-point thumping. Geelong Amateur slammed through nine goals to Portarlington’s zero in the first quarter and was relentless in attack, recording 44 scoring shots to eight and winning by 156 points. Ammos spearheads Rowan McSparron and Damien Zaparenkov bagged six goals each. Ocean Grove remains a game clear in second spot after crushing Newcomb by 179 points. Daniel Freeman slotted nine goals for the Grubbers, while Scott Grant kicked three for the Power. For full results and fixtures from all grades, head to aflbarwon.com.au.
Soaked netballers play on THE heavens well and truly opened for the start of the BFL A Grade games, with netballers completely soaked even before taking the court. In this week’s thriller, Queenscliff upset Drysdale to celebrate their second win of the season with a come-from-behind one goal victory. The Coutas’ captain Lauren Dick was instrumental, putting away half her team’s total score and snagging three votes, while defender Tess Upstill was a key playmaker down back. Queenscliff will take on Anglesea next week. In a slower game due to the wet, the Roos beat Barwon Heads 39-32 to maintain third spot on the ladder. Goaler H Van Gemst put away a solid 28 goals, with E McDonald receiving the best player nod for the day. Barwon Heads will play Newcomb next week. Ocean Grove handed Newcomb another loss for the season, running away 76-15 winners. Laura Bell and Amy Lee put away 39 and 27 goals respectively, while defender Candice Park claimed best on honours. The Grubbers sit in sixth position on the ladder and will face Drysdale this week. Geelong Amateur remains unbeaten after jumping out of the blocks on Portarlington, who were unable to diminish an early 10 goal lead.
The Ammos defenders made life tough for the Demons, with Keisha Guilmartin and Carly Post notching three and two votes respectively. Torquay remain firmly in second spot with an easy 60-47 win over Modewarre. Amy Vogels dominated with 44 goals and a best-on-court performance. Modewarre sits just outside the top four and face the Ammos this week.
Best on court for Geelong Amateur Keisha Guilmartin (GK) makes an intercept over Portarlington’s Jemma Barns.

This year’s Boating Industry Association (BIA) Melbourne Boat Show was a success.
THIS year's Boating Industry Association (BIA) Melbourne Boat Show was an entertaining event with plenty of specials on boats and outboard motors, as well other relevant boating gear. I was fortunate enough to spend time meeting and talking to boaties and fishers about the issues confronting all of us, including launching, access and fees. The show saw many people spending time going over, through and in some cases even under the boats. All the dealers at the show were more than ready to strike up a deal with perspective clients showing off the latest gear and technology in the boating industry in the process In another first for the BIA, access was granted by them to the first ever political party to have a stand at the BIA Boat Show.

The new chief executive officer of the BIA, Steve Potts, said the show was fantastic and a real credit to all the exhibitors old and new. “I thank them for their efforts in their displays and their deals for visitors as well as the experts on stage who kept the crowds entertained with fun for the kids including casting practice for the kids, catching yabbies and colouring-in competitions, it was the first boat show I have had the pleasure to be involved in and I am looking forward to being involved in many more, especially, next year where we hope to make the show even bigger and better than it has been this year.

Lady golfers wind-up enjoyable pennant season AFTER a toughly fought Pennant season in the south west, division winners received their spoils at a recent wind-up day at Clifton Springs Golf Club. Many close matches were played during the South Western District Ladies Golf Association season, with one going until the 25th hole, such is the ferocity that 338 women play this scratch match play. Over all sections, 1,020 matches were completed in 2014. Five players remained undefeated: Jenni Reed (Barwon Heads), Jenny
Edmanson (Portarlington), Chris Swinton (Barwon Heads), Val White (Curlewis) and Pam Smigowski (Queens Park), as well as a hole in one by Jude Michell (Lonsdale). To celebrate a past stalwart of the SWDLGA committee, Jean Russell, players also enjoyed a Canadian Foursomes to vie for the Jean Russell Salver, named in her honour. The best nett score returned was lodged by Margie Black and Jill Pring from Curlewis Golf Club who were
also part of the winning Curlewis Division 2 team. Many grudge matches will be held over until the 2015 season, but overwhelmingly, the women of SWDLGA very much enjoy their Pennant season, renewing friendships and for the defeated, the hope that the next season will be their year. Season winners were: Division 1Portarlington GC (undefeated all season). Division 2 â€“ Curlewis GC (winning in a playoff with Anglesea). Division 3 â€“ 13th Beach GC (undefeated all season).
Division 4 â€“ Colac GC (winning in a playoff with 13th Beach). Division 5 â€“ Barwon Heads GC (undefeated all season). Division 6 â€“ Curlewis GC (undefeated all season). Division 7 â€“ Queens Park GC (undefeated all season). Sunday Business Ladies and Junior Pennant â€“ Queens Park GC. Otway â€“ Apollo Bay GC. During the SWDLGA season the best nett score returned was lodged by Margie Black, right, and Jill Pring from Curlewis Golf Club who were also part of the winning Curlewis Division 2 team.

Winter has arrived â€“ at least the rain has the temps have still been very comfortable for golf. Wednesday (June 11) was Menâ€™s Par and there were some excellent scores recorded. A Grade - Rick Gribben +6; B Grade Peter Calvert +3, and Christian Robertson +6. NTPs: Peter Williams â€“ 3rd; David Lewis â€“ 6th; Bill Black â€“ 13th and Jackpot Hole 16th John Prince. Barry Coleman also recorded an eagle on the 1st hole. Thursday, the women played stroke and monthly medal with Jo Murray having an outstanding day winning B Grade, the June monthly medal and the May monthly medal in a play off from Janet Coombes with 71 nett. A Grade was won by Suellen Eskrigge 72 nett and C Grade Judy Laird 75 nett. NTPs: Noelene Dumbrell - 3rd, Ann Stokes â€“ 6th and Valda Connelly taking both the 13th and 16th. Saturday Par Competition: A Grade - David Haintz +6; B Grade - Geoff Trethowan +3; C Grade - Richard Murrie; and the Womenâ€™s - Brenda Balderstone -7. NTPs David Haintz â€“ 3rd; Stuart Johnson â€“ 6th; Don Parry â€“ 13th; and Damian Withers Jackpot hole 16th. Sunday was Stableford and Marianne Frauenfelder did a Martin Kaymer to the field and blitzed the womenâ€™s comp with 41 points, 9 points ahead of her nearest competitor! The menâ€™s winner was Barry Coleman 38 points.
NTPs: Colin Foster â€“ 3rd; Sandy Talbot â€“ 6th; Colin Foster again on the 13th and Ian Lewtas on the 16th. Donâ€™t forget our â€œWinter Warmer Membership Specialâ€? we are currently running â€“ tell your friends what a great club we have and they should all join! Good golfing.
ANOTHER month has flown by and the ladies medal is back up for grabs. There were some strong scores posted early but at the end of the day three players tied on 67 Helen Bloink, Teneile Louchery and Ainsley McCallum. The girls will play off for the June medal on July 1. Daily winners were Teneile Louchery for A Grade with 67. Lois Matthews won B Grade with a solid 73. Helen Bloink put together a great score of 67 leading the way for C Grade. Norma Veale found some form taking out the Resort course win with 37 points. NTPs Sue Morris, Robyn Soulsby, Cheryl Mostyn, Sylvia Peck and Lesley Beltrame. Dee Matheson, adding to her winnings, played a great shot on the 13th to win the jackpot. No doubt it will not last long as there is always something in the golf shop she has her eye on. Wednesday, some rather good scores were posted in the afternoon proving once and for all that morning players do not always get the best of the conditions to score well. Andy Clark carded +4 to take out A Grade. Geoff Davie, still in sizzling form, carved up the course to score +8 and finish 1st for B Grade. His son by his side as caddie, it proved too good a combination. Dominic Condon played well to shoot +5 and win C Grade, he was very happy at presentations finally able to get his hands on that microphone. Peter Doak was the only morning
player worthy of a mention winning D grade with +6. Brian Brown had an outstanding +7 to win the Resort. NTPs Barry Mackie, Dennis Abbey, Peter Cannon and Alec Hand. Peter Wills held onto the jackpot with a good shot early. Friday, in perfect conditions, Steve May shot 43 points to win for the men. Wanda Paterson had a lovely day out in the sun scoring 42 points to win the ladies. Tom Lock won the Resort with 38 points. NTPs Brian Baranski, Ross Martin and Barbara Young-Harding. Chris Oliver hit the jackpot. Saturday, Paul Brunt found some form scoring 43 points to take out A Grade. B Grade went to John Laidlaw with 41 points. Greg Brinsmead shot 41 points to win C Grade. Shaun Litaize put together the score of the day with an incredible round of 46 points. Dee Matheson soldiered on in the rain and wind to finish the round and win the ladies with 37 points. We saw most of the other ladies back at the 19th hole enjoying a drink or two. Fred Pyke with 39 points won the Resort. NTPs Ken Scott, Sam Colman, Wes Bumpstead, Paul Brunt, Ainsley McCallum, Mandy Collins and Bob Gough. Hugh Thompson hit a good shot early on 17 to take out the jackpot. Sunday, in the mixed competition, Greg Dennis finished on top with 40 points. NTPs Andrew Carr and Helen Oâ€™Kane. Haydn Veitch hit the jackpot.

THE SANDS TORQUAY MEN Wednesday Stableford: It was far from easy out there for the men as the course was playing very long. Our winner, Brett Balloch, seemed unfazed by said conditions as he navigated his way around in an efficient manner, scoring 36 points in the process to win by 1 over a plethora of players at 35. Runner up in a countback was Noel Mullen. Saturday Stableford: It was a two grade comp for the men on Saturday, and it certainly wasnâ€™t easy with the course playing long in the wet conditions. The A Grade was won by Brian Oâ€™Shea with 37 points for a narrow 1 point win over Calem Hoffmann who was runner up with 36 points. In B Grade, Michael McCallum caught fire and ran away with the comp, scoring 40 points for a 4 point win. The runner up in a count back was Pieter Egberts with 36.
FROM THE MEMBERSâ€™ ROOM Saturday Stableford, Ladies Challenge: Ten ladies competed in Round 6 of the Saturday Ladies Golf Competition on June 14. The conditions were unpleasant but that didnâ€™t stop our leaders from executing some solid play. Dot Tattersall emerged victorious with 30 points, edging out Betty Downey and Sue Browne by one.
Thursday Stableford: The day started off cool with little breeze; as it became overcast, the wind got up a bit for players around the back 9. It was Julie Bottomley who got out early and made the best of the conditions shooting a great score of 36 points and was the only player to play to her handicap for the day. Club captain Carol McDonald came in second with 35 points.
Monday Pinehurst Medley: Pinehurst is always an interesting competition as it requires team chemistry and a bit of strategy. The team, that on this day, navigated the course most effectively belonged to Jim Demetrious and Alan Hartley with a score of Nett 68.25. Runners-up were Peter and Diane Cox who scored a Nett 71.3. Tuesday Stableford Medley: It was a challenging day as conditions were less than ideal for the Tuesday Medley. Sharon Stewart was hardly affected by this as she was able to power through with 18 points, earning a 2 point victory over the runner up whoâ€™s a familiar name to the member report, Peter Cox. Sunday Par Medley: It was chilly start to the Sunday medley and the morning was going to be quite miserable but the wind died down making conditions a bit easier. Jai Edhouse was unfazed as he fired a -1 to win by 1 over runner-up Tim Newson.

PORTARLINGTON GOLF CLUB OUR Ladies Club Championships have once again been decided after three rounds, and Jenny Edmanson has emerged as our champion for the 4th time since 2010, with a total score of 248. Runner-up was last yearâ€™s champ, Angela Foott with a total of 257. Congratulations to Jenny, and also to our other winners over the three-day event, who were: Gross Results: B Grade- Sonia Dall; C Grade Maureen Walsh; D Grade - Geraldine Collison. Nett Results: A Grade - Emma Zahl; B Grade Jenny McKeon; C Grade - Judy Patton; D Grade - Christine Watson.
WITH ROB CASEY
Wednesday June 11, Ladies Stroke Angela Foott came home with a rush by carding a nett 72 to win A Grade nett and gross from Marg Burchell on 76, while Jenny McKeon continued her strong form by heading the B Graders with her 72 to topple Maureen Walsh on 75. Sandra Kearton topped all with her nett 68 to win Trophy of the Day and C Grade from Christine Watson.
Saturday June 14, Menâ€™s and Ladies Stroke
With a DSR of 72, indicating the course was not easy, Nipper Dodds made a mockery of that with his 44 points to win Trophy of the Day and B Grade from John Poweâ€™s creditable 40. Lloyd James also defied the trend with his 43 points to win A Grade from Peter Nash on 41, while Digby Issell won C Grade on a count back from Ian Flanders, both with 37. Visitor Graeme Fordham from Murray Downs put together a great 39 points to win D Grade by a shot from Joe Sacco. NTPs went to Peter Oâ€™Neill, James Smith and Digby.
An eventful day with play suspended for a period due to the heavy downpour flooding some of our greens, and many of our players calling it quits. However, 49 of the 136 men completed the course, with Mark Costello having a blinder with his nett 67 to comfortably win Trophy of the Day and D Grade from Alan Kerryâ€™s 72. A Grade winner was Brendan Watty from Stan Mascoll (who also collected the ProPin) on a count back, both with nett 72, while B Grade went to Leigh Wilson on 71 from Martin Shembrey on 73. Rob Stiglbauer did enough to win C Grade with his 76 by 2 shots from Mark Beasley. NTPs went to Gavyn Whyley, Scott Hennigan and Max Edmanson. The ball comp was a pleasant surprise for most men, going down to a record 81! No Ladies completed their event due to the conditions.
