Community marches on Anglesea mine and power station

CLOSE COAL BY JAMES TAYLOR

THE campaign against the Anglesea coal mine and power station has taken to the streets, with a crowd estimated at more than 700 marching on the Alcoa-owned site and calling for its closure. Sunday’s ‘Shut It Down’ rally was organised by community group Surf Coast Air Action, and featured guest speakers including scientist Rob Gell, Surf Coast Shire councillor Margot Smith, Dr Merryn Redenbach of Doctors for the Environment Australia, Dr Nicholas Aberle of Environment Victoria, Kayla Foster of GetUp! and Leigh Ewbank of Friends of the Earth.

The mine provided 40 per cent of the power to Alcoa’s justclosed Point Henry smelter, and the company has been “actively seeking a buyer” since February to operate the mine as a standalone facility. Mr Gell spoke about the economic viability of the mine, saying the value of coal to generate electricity was plummeting. “I understand that Alcoa has suggested that it has had ‘multiple expressions of interest’ to purchase this dinosaur technology, but I wouldn’t be holding my breath for a sale – I’ll bet they’re not. “In parallel to our concern about the potential for the continued operation of a brown coal-fired

power station in the middle of Anglesea, we should be equally concerned about the continued nonoperation of the coal mine; about the risk that is posed if a buyer is not found, if the mine is not maintained properly as Alcoa’s interests in the region decline.” He said the aversion to change was not serving Victoria well and the state needed a smarter, sustainable economy. “If we hadn’t learned and changed we’d still have lead in paint, cars without seat belts and we’d all be smokers.” SCAA spokesperson Dr Jacinta Morahan said the rally clearly demonstrated there was “no longer any social licence to continue

polluting the air of the Surf Coast”. “Any company foolish enough to buy the toxic Anglesea coal mine and plant will be the focus of a sustained and very public campaign until the facility is shut down.” Mr Ewbank said Alcoa and the state government had been “notably silent” about the site’s future. “Will Alcoa do the right thing by the community and shut the power plant down? Will the Napthine government get off the fence and help the community transition?” Alcoa has said it would work through the sale process as quickly as possible, and a decision on the future of the Anglesea operations would be taken once that process was complete.

Dam clear message sent on Aireys water supply BY JAMES TAYLOR HUNDREDS of people in Aireys Inlet and Fairhaven have urged Barwon Water not to connect their towns to the Geelong water system. Barwon Water held another community meeting last Saturday about its plan to upgrade the towns’ water supply. This will involve either replacing the water treatment plant at the Painkalac Dam or building an 11-kilometre pipeline from Anglesea. More than 200 residents marched to the Aireys Inlet Community Hall for the meeting, where community representatives Vicki McKay and Peter Kaye presented Barwon Water chairman Michael King with a petition with more than 400 signatures supporting the building of a new treatment plant and opposing the pipeline. Vince Mahon said the turnout and petition made it clear to the water authority that Aireys Inlet and Fairhaven residents wanted to maintain their own water supply and not be connected to the Greater Geelong water grid. “For nearly 40 years, Aireys Inlet and Fairhaven have had their own safe and secure water supply. “When severe drought affected many areas including the Greater Geelong Catchment, Aireys Inlet and Fairhaven did not have to endure the prolonged water restrictions experienced elsewhere because of having their own water supply.� A Barwon Water spokesperson said the board

was expected to make a decision on the preferred option for the upgrade at its August meeting, to be held later this month. The spokesperson said this decision would be based on a range of factors, including security of supply, water

quality, cost, environmental impacts, community and stakeholder feedback, and bushfire resilience. Mr Mahon said a delegation of Aireys Inlet and Fairhaven residents planned to address the board before it made a decision.

news 03 Nockles appointed to advisory body BY JAMES TAYLOR SURF Coast Shire councillor Rod Nockles has been appointed to the state government’s Earth Resources Ministerial Advisory Council. The council will advise Energy and Resources Minister Russell Northe on the sustainable development of the resources sector throughout Victoria. Surf Coast mayor Rose Hodge said it was important that the shire was represented on this body. “We have a lot of significant issues on the Surf Coast like the future of the Anglesea brown coal mine and power station, potential coal seam gas exploration and geothermal energy that our community has a strong interest in. It is really important our region has a strong voice on this advisory council and I congratulate Cr Nockles on his appointment.� Cr Nockles said his involvement on the advisory council would provide further opportunities to ensure the Surf Coast’s voice was heard. “I’m delighted to have been appointed and feel privileged to be able to assist the state government with its community consultation around this important issue. These issues are very much alive across the Surf Coast Shire and a matter of concern for our residents, so it is vital that we play an active role in ensuring our community is engaged.� The state government first announced details of the Earth Resources Ministerial Advisory Council in 2012. Its membership is made up from organisations including the Victorian Farmers Federation, water catchment management authorities, local government, and industry peak bodies including the Minerals Council of Australia and Cement Concrete and Aggregates Australia.

Lightstation goes native for celebratory weekend CAPE Otway Lightstation is going native for International Lighthouse Weekend this weekend by cooking up a storm with bush tucker. As the lightstation joins forces with 404 lighthouses in 43 countries to raise awareness of lighthouses and the need to preserve them, the Cape Otway heritage precinct is also celebrating its first people - the Gadabanud. Over the weekend, they will dish up a fusion of contemporary flavours, blended with traditional seafood, herbs and spices. Brad West, a descendent of the Gulidjan people, who is a guide at the Lightstation's Aboriginal Cultural Site, will steam snapper fillets infused with bush tucker flavours, in baskets made from the strappy leaves of the Lomandra, over an open fire. “Lomandra was used by the women to create fish and eel traps and woven into basketry and water carrying vessels,” Mr West said. “I like to make Lomandra baskets for steaming fish. “We salt the fish down with some coastal saltbush, and marinate it with mountain pepper which grows in the Otways. “The wild rosemary is pungent and has a heavier flavour than European rosemary. “When you steam the fish all those flavours come through including the starchy sweetness of the Lomandra.” Mr West will cook and serve the fish, with Warrigal Greens, on Saturday and Sunday at 11am and 2pm. During the International Lighthouse Weekend celebrations visitors can also cook damper on an open fire and enjoy a four course dinner at the Lightkeeper's Café on Saturday August 16, which will be served by historical dramatisation

performers, Characters of the Cape. Diners will have a view of the spot-lit 1848 lighthouse, as they tuck into a trio of desserts. To book for the Lightstation Weekend dinner call 5237 9240. A series of activities will also be held at Split Point Lighthouse in Aireys Inlet as part of International Lighthouse Weekend. To find out more, visit splitpointlighthouse.com.au. International Lighthouse Weekend is held annually across the globe to celebrate the significant role of lighthouses in our history. Lightstation guide Brad West, of Apollo Bay, with a young visitor.

First stage of Mount Moriac masterplan completed BY JAMES TAYLOR SPORTING clubs at Mount Moriac Reserve are now enjoying new and better facilities following the completion of stage one of the Mount Moriac Reserve Masterplan. The $1.35 million project was officially opened at the weekend during the Modewarre Football/ Netball Club’s clash against Barwon Heads. It includes a pavilion with new change rooms, a flexible layout with more functional community spaces, a third netball court, two tennis courts and a new playspace. The works were supported by $650,000 of state government funding – $350,000 from the Community Facility Funding Program and $300,000 from the Regional Growth Fund’s Putting Locals First Program. The Surf Coast Shire also contributed $650,000 towards the project, and reserve tenants Modewarre Football Netball Club and Modewarre Cricket Club contributed $25,000 each. The facilities were opened on Saturday by

Polwarth MP Terry Mulder, South Barwon MP Andrew Katos, Surf Coast Shire mayor Rose Hodge and Winchelsea Ward councillors Rod Nockles and Heather Wellington. Mr Mulder said grassroots sports such as football and netball were the backbone of Victorian communities and played a vital role in getting people more active across the state. “The new pavilion with adjacent netball and tennis courts give locals even more reason to come together to celebrate community events and enjoy the sports they love. “Importantly, the new modern accessible facilities ensure that everyone in the community whatever their age, gender or ability have an opportunity to be a part of the football, netball, cricket and tennis clubs based at the reserve. “Our investment is just one of the ways we are delivering on the state government’s strategy to build a better Victoria, grow the economy, build quality infrastructure and contribute to the health and wellbeing of the state.”

Taskforce to make splash with findings next month BY JAMES TAYLOR

THE taskforce investigating the feasibility of various options to deliver an aquatic centre in the Surf Coast Shire will table its advice to the council and the community next month. The Surf Coast Aquatic Centre Taskforce was established by the shire last July, and had its term extended from six to eight months in March. Shire mayor Rose Hodge said the council was keen to receive comprehensive advice from the taskforce. “This has been an important issue on the Surf Coast and we have a responsibility to make an informed decision with the best possible information. “Any proposal to deliver an aquatic centre has to

be well-researched and affordable.” Cr Hodge said the assessment of a planning application for a caravan park on the corner of Coombes Road and Ghazeepore Road was a separate issue. “We also have a planning application for a caravan park, which council must assess on its merits. “Despite recent media reports, we can only base that assessment on what it is in the application. It does not include a full-scale aquatic centre.” Taskforce chair Cr Brian McKiterick said the taskforce was looking at a number of possible options under which an aquatic centre might be delivered “We need to ensure that we are looking at approaches that are realistic and will meet the needs

of the Surf Coast community. The taskforce is keen to present council with robust advice and analysis.” The taskforce is reviewing and updating a 2009 feasibility study, which suggested the shire would need to borrow $13 million for a pool to be built no earlier than 2015. Its benchmarking of other aquatic centres across Victoria has found the facilities were expensive to construct and operate, but councils largely accepted these operating losses as part of a suite of community services. Operating losses could be partially offset through high memberships, as well as attractive membership packages, gymnasiums, fitness services and allied health services that would draw visitors to the centre.

IN BRIEF Simpler electoral procedures proposed The state government says legislation it introduced into Parliament last week will help simplify a number of election procedures ahead of this year’s election. Attorney-General Robert Clark said the changes would simplify enrolment and postal vote procedures, improve protections against misleading political party names and remove duplication in the registration of how-to-vote cards. The changes will allow people to apply online to vote by post and will provide alternatives to having a witness verify identity on an enrolment form, such as by providing a passport or driver’s licence number. The new laws would also change the deadline for people enrolling to vote.

Jail time doubles for leaving children in cars New Victorian laws could see parents who leave children in unattended cars face a six-month jail term or a fine of up to $3,690. Changes to the Children, Youth and Families Act 2005, introduced by the state government, will double the jail time for leaving a child unattended. Minister for Children and Early Childhood Development Wendy Lovell said despite a ‘No Exceptions, No Excuses’ awareness campaign with Kidsafe Victoria earlier this year, a significant number of parents still left their children unattended.

Deadline for Coastcare grants closes tomorrow Groups that work to protect and enhance Victoria’s coast have been reminded they have until 4pm tomorrow to apply for the latest round of Coastcare grants. Coastal conservation groups can apply for small grants of up to $7,000 or medium grants between $7,000 and $20,000. Projects that will be completed by June 30, 2016 are eligible for funding. For more information, head to depi.vic.gov.au/coastcare.

Number of gasfield-free communities grows BY JAMES TAYLOR SEVERAL communities in Victoria’s southwest have joined those in the Surf Coast Shire and elsewhere in the state in declaring themselves gasfield-free. Campaigners against exploration for fracking for coal seam gas (GSG) and unconventional gases in Hamilton, Digby, Dartmoor, Drumborg, Byaduk and Portland met with Premier Denis Napthine in Hamilton last week to officially present their ‘Gasfield-Free Community’ declarations. Earlier this month, Dr Napthine said there would be no fracking gas exploration in Victoria while he was Premier. Digby landholder Helen Henry said was heartened that the Premier had acknowledged the declarations – which campaigners say are supported by 96 per cent of the landholders in the district – and was glad to hear Dr Napthine’s stance on gas fields. “But if the Premier is serious about allaying community concern, he needs to put his words into action. “He has the power to create no-go zones in areas where the community do not want the industry ahead. He has the power to enact a statewide ban.” Gasfield Free Glenelg member Sarah Fox said the south-west community would not be backing down in the lead up to the election. “We need certainty, and we won’t have it until both major parties commit to legislating

a total ban.” Last week’s declaration means eight communties in western Victoria and 19 in Gippsland have declared themselves gasfield-free. These include the residents of Deans Marsh, Bambra and Boonah in the Surf Coast Shire. In November, the state government extended the moratorium on fracking to extract CSG and

other kinds of unconventional gas until at least July 2015. The Surf Coast Shire voted to reaffirm its support for a moratorium within days, but the City of Greater Geelong is yet to announce a firm position on fracking. It has started a 30day process to educate the council on the issue, and will take public submissions for one month from August 25.

PETstock Torquay unveils new look PETSTOCK Torquay recently had a good grooming and now boasts a fresh new look. Franchisee Andrew Towell said he was excited to welcome customers to check out the new-look store and bring their leashed pets along with them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;PETstock is a very fun and vibrant organisation, which is reflected at the Torquay store, inside and out,â&#x20AC;? he said. Located in Bristol Road and open 7 days, PETstock Torquay has been providing pet care products, services and advice for Surf Coast pets since 2007. The Torquay team prides itself on providing customers with expert advice, in depth product knowledge and counter-to-car service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As well as a huge product range for family members of the furry, feathery and scaly varieties, PETstock Torquay also offers free engraving with any ID tag purchase and a 24-hour DIY Dog Wash facility,â&#x20AC;? he said.

THE Surf Coast Shire joined the Red Cross centenary celebrations by raising the Red Cross flag at the shire offices last Friday. The Red Cross celebrated the 100 year anniversary of people helping people across the nation yesterday, and a number of events in the next month will keep the celebration going. Shire mayor Rose Hodge said the Red Cross is part of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest humanitarian movement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Australia, Red Cross started in Melbourne, nine days after the outbreak of World War 1. Since

then, the organisation has seen so much and made an enormous difference. Red Cross was here for the Ash Wednesday bushfires in what is arguably this communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest time of need. They have continued to partner with us in emergency management, including a multi-agency training session Council held in Anglesea last year.â&#x20AC;? Cr Hodge thanked Dorothy Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell and other volunteers for their work and said the shire was proud to raise the flag to celebrate the organisationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s achievements.

Fisher finds barriers

Principal Katos spends a day at Torquay College to renewable projects BY JAMES TAYLOR

SOUTH Barwon MP Andrew Katos shared the top job at Torquay College earlier this week as part of the annual Principal For A Day program. Mr Katos joined the primary school’s principal Pamela Kinsman for four hours on Tuesday to learn more about the day-today operations of one of the region’s largest primary schools. The pair went on a tour of the entire school, including classes from all year levels, the library and the environment centre. Mr Katos also sat in on a performance review, and had lunch prepared from the

school’s Stephanie Alexander kitchen garden. He said he usually visited schools as an MP in regards to needed repairs or the opening of infrastructure, and Ms Kinsman was doing “an excellent job in a very large school”. “There are 88 teachers and two assistant principals, so it’s a big task.” He said primary school had changed dramatically since he was a pupil, with the increased use of technology and different learning styles the biggest changes. “My third-eldest son was telling me about the circulatory system the other day – I didn’t learn that when I was in grade 2.” Ms Kinsman said Torquay College did not

participate in Principal For A Day every year but was very pleased to have Mr Katos visit. “He’s the principal for a day with me, so we’re talking on an equal level, instead of me having to make an appointment.” She said topics of discussion over the day included the primary school in Torquay North, scheduled to open in 2017. “There’s 930 kids here, so it’s something that really needs to be done.” Mr Katos said it was highly likely another primary school would eventually need to be built in the Spring Creek area. The pair also talked about the future of Torquay College’s student welfare officers, which were cut in the federal budget.

Andrew Katos (first from right) catches up on some reading with Torquay College pupils Ariane Pierssene, Jaxson Bant, and Charlotte Cook.

SURF Coast Shire councillor Eve Fisher says there are four barriers holding back community-driven renewable energy in not only the Surf Coast but also Victoria. Cr Fisher travelled overseas last year on a Municipal Association of Victoria Local Government Fellowship to investigate a variety of international best practice examples of energy generation. She completed her report, ‘From grassroots to grass tops’, last month. The report states there are four “gaping holes” that prevent community projects from getting off the ground: • no community energy feedin tariff and power purchase agreements are nearly impossible to negotiate without funding already secured • no grid priority legislation, so community projects can be easily rejected by power companies • virtual net metering (offsetting electricity bills through ownership of off-site wind and solar infrastructure) is absent from federal energy regulation, and • Victoria’s restrictive wind farm laws. “Time is wasted and communities are left wondering if it’s worth the effort,” Cr

Fisher wrote. “In 35 interviews with people in the United States, Germany and Denmark I uncovered a sad truth about the Australian community clean energy landscape – very little is possible until the laws change or are actually introduced. “This is not an attack on our current government. This is the result of apathy by successive governments who have not seen the need to empower the renewables sector.” MEANWHILE, a Jan Juc couple has supported Get Up’s Better Power campaign by switching to a company that supports renewable energy. Bec Burns said her power bill was cheaper with Powershop, and she and her husband James Patterson were surprised by how much profit EnergyAustralia was previously making from their bills. “We constantly hear in the media that renewable energy is to blame for high power prices, but now we’re starting to think it’s the big three energy companies that are the problem. “When EnergyAustralia found out we had switched, they rang us up and offered us 30 per cent discount on our power bill. That’s a huge discount and if that’s their margin then they’re definitely ripping off the Australian public.”

COMMUNITY PROFILE

Don’t forget to chalk in your dairies the last weekend in August for the fourth annual Lorne Festival of the Performing Arts. Unprecedented demand will ensure this year’s festival is a roaring success with the opening night cabaret already sold out! For all those who missed out, standing room may be available on the night (check the website for further details) and make sure you grab yourselves a Weekend Pass now at www.lovelornefestival.com. The Lorne Festival of Performing Arts brings an amazing project to the schools of the region - Reaching Extraordinary Heights. Some 300 students from five schools in the region will have the chance to learn circus skills from Australia’s Youth Circus - the Flying Fruit Fly Circus from Tuesday 26 August - Thursday 28 August. You’ll also have the chance to see them in the Festival program! The last home and away game of the local football and netball season concludes on Saturday when all teams take the long road trip to Simpson. It’s been a long year for the boys but great that so many have put their hand up to ensure that we were represented on every occasion. Whether it was players changing their minds on retirement, pulling the boots on after a long spell out of the game or for the very first time, the Club proudly met its obligations on every occasion - well done to all. I have been blessed to travel overseas for a second occasion this year in achieving a goal that was set some time ago. When last away I penned whilst above the English Channel and this time I share my comments with you whilst beneath it. My journey carries the same purpose as my last in visiting my son whilst abroad but is this time shared with my wife and daughter. One tends to forget and take for granted at times just how special the relationships with family and friends really are and there are times when these feelings are felt in a way that you know you will be etched in your mind forever. I was grateful to experience one of these moments when my son hugged his mother and sister for the first time since leaving Australia in January. Together we were in awe of how our English and European friends share, preserve and celebrate their past that leaves the biggest impression. And yes, although their history runs far deeper than that of Australia, it reinforces to me that we need to be more proactive in doing more, especially where in small communities like Lorne, unless we do it will be lost. We are so lucky to have the Lorne Historical Society taking the lead in Lorne!

Snow time for local Lorne kids!

Don and Christina have taken a dip in the sea together every morning between December and Easter for 50 years. That’s how long they have been coming to Lorne with their family and now their family’s families. Christina’s parents first rented the house, built in 1919, that they now own, which they in turn rented before a serendipitous opportunity arose to buy it as it stood. Equipped with their three boys, the dog, the cat, the goldfish and pet budgerigars they travelled to Lorne every school holidays. They shared many adventures with their neighbours over the years including marathon bush walks through the Otways to Pennyroyal and overland to Moggs Creek. To this day they are devoted walkers. Christina recently completed the Cape to Cape walk in WA and has walked the six day path from Apollo Bay to the Twelve Apostles. Before Don’s life as a politician, he was a Director of General Motors Holden. He was invited by the Liberal Party to stand for pre-selection for Monash Province in the Legislative Council. He was surprised to win that and then to become elected, later serving as a respected Education Minister in the Kennett Government. After Christina completed university she worked as a Stipendiary Probation and Parole Officer for girls and women but no room here to tell of her experiences in that role. For 25 years she was a volunteer guide in the Botanic Gardens and has been President of their Plant Craft Cottage. Don and Christine attend the theatre and ballet regularly, love movies and read a lot. Their connection with Lorne is eternal as local children engage with the family through the fairy house in their garden leaving messages when the Haywards are not there and sharing morning tea with them when they are.

Refugee support group forms in Aireys Inlet BY JAMES TAYLOR ANOTHER community in the Geelong region has shown its commitment to refugees and asylum seekers with the formation of Aireys Inlet Rural Australians for Refugees (RAR). The group, which had its first meeting last week, was inspired at a recent public event in the town at which guest speaker Tri Nguyen described the positive impact the generous welcome by Australians had on him and other Vietnamese refugees arriving by boat in the 1980s. Tri was delighted with the boat made by Keith Bremner for donations and the generous amount given towards housing asylum seekers in Melbourne. The boat was a replica of the one Tri towed in April this year when he walked from

Melbourne to Canberra to present the boat to the Prime Minister. At last week’s meeting, several focus groups were formed to work on obtaining up-to-date and accurate information regarding refugees and asylum seekers to share with the community, and to organise events and activities. The Aireys Inlet group joins the increasing number of Australian RAR groups, estimated to be at least 90 with a membership of about 15,000. These rural-based groups provide a voice for non-metropolitan residents concerned with the plight of asylum seekers and refugees. Aireys Inlet RAR presently has 46 members. For more information or if you are interested in joining or participating in their activities and events, email co-ordinator Mary Bremner on bremnerkm@gmail.com.

National Trust properties to be visited by the Green Army BY JAMES TAYLOR NATIONAL Trust properties in Winchelsea and Geelong are set to receive a major investment as part of the federal government’s Green Army program. Green Army projects at the properties, as well as in Lorne and Queenscliff, have been formally approved and will get under way in the coming weeks as part of round one of the program. The National Trust works will include: • Barwon Park, Winchelsea: design and implementation of a restored heritage

orchard; restoration of heritage windbreaks; maintenance of the heritage garden, building and native vegetation corridor; development of interpretation pathway access; and site invigilation • The Heights, Newtown: site invigilation as part of the launch of The Heights watertower; and heritage garden and building maintenance, and • Barwon Grange, Newtown: heritage garden and building maintenance. Corangamite federal member Sarah Henderson said the Green Army program was a key Coalition election commitment, with $525 million budgeted

over four years and an average cost of $192,000 per project. “Our region is blessed to have some wonderful National Trust properties but they are very costly to maintain. This Green Army funding will make a major difference in assisting with their upkeep. “The Green Army program also means that young Australians will now have the opportunity to be a part of one of the government's major environmental initiatives and help our community deliver important local conservation outcomes.” She said the program provided opportunities for people aged 17-24 years to gain training

Federal grant supports Anzac Centenary event in Apollo Bay AN EVENT in Apollo Bay earlier this month commemorated the service and sacrifice of Indigenous Australians during World War I. Organised by Apollo Bay Arts, this year’s Warm Winter Words ‘rethinking Australia’s indigenous past’ event at the Apollo Bay Hotel on August 3 featured Professor Mick Dodson AM, Bruce Elder and Bruce Pascoe. Professor Dodson is the author of many articles and speeches and is now heading the ‘Serving our Country’ project to document the stories and the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who fought for Australia from the Boer War until 2000. He also met with Apollo Bay P-12 College students at the Apollo Bay RSL last week. The Warm Winter Words event was supported by a $1,940 federal government grant through the Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program. Corangamite federal member Sarah Henderson said the program supported local communities through funding for projects that preserved the

stories of servicemen and women for generations to come. “I welcome the approval of the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Centenary of Anzac, Senator Michael Ronaldson, of this grant which recognises Apollo Bay Arts’ efforts in commemorating the Centenary of Anzac. “The Centenary of Anzac will be the most significant period of commemoration in our nation’s history and the Abbott Government is committed to providing opportunities for all Australians to participate.” She said $125,000 had been made available to each federal electorate across the country for community and ex-service groups to spend on commemorative programs. “I would like to thank the members of the electorate committee who have assisted me in developing an approach for commemorating the Anzac Centenary in Corangamite.” For more information on the Anzac Centenary, head to anzaccentenary.gov.au.

Presenter Graeme Stevenson and artist Jenny Laidlaw take a break from filming an episode of Colour in your Life in Jan Juc on Thursday. The episode will be screened on channel 4ME in September. Photo: REBECCA LAUNER

Local artist makes her small screen debut BY TIFFANY PILCHER JAN Juc artist Jenny Laidlaw is coming soon to the small screen after being filmed last week for channel 4ME’s Colour In Your Life. Created by artist Graeme Stevenson, Colour In Your Life was developed to create a digital record of the many varied talents and techniques of artists from Australia and around the world. Stevenson and his film crew travelled from New South Wales to spend the day with Laidlaw while she created one of her trademark maritimeinspired artworks and explained her methods and ideas. She said the experience of filming was initially nerve-wracking but she soon became comfortable being in front of the camera.

“I am sure that being part of the show will be one of the best decisions I have made for my art career and my creative journey,” she said. “It has certainly been a wonderful opportunity for me to share my artwork. “The show appeals to a broad range of people and the whole concept of the show is exceptionally exciting for an artist like myself, one of my main aims is to inspire and share my creativity and by being part of a show like this I can feel as if I am helping to share the insight into the mind of an artist like myself, worldwide!” Laidlaw’s Colour in your Life episode will be screened on 4ME (free-to-air regional channel 64) from September 7. The episode will also be available at 4me.net.au and on YouTube.

Accessible platform rolled out at Aireys lighthouse BY JAMES TAYLOR

installed to blend the precinct with its coastal surrounds and to reduce rainfall runoff and erosion. The platform is an additional attraction to the main Split Point Lookout, which does not cater for all coastal users. “Consultation undertaken during the development of the 2008 Split Point Lighthouse Precinct Master Plan highlighted the importance of this vantage point, particularly to those with limited mobility who are unable to access the Split Point Lookout,” Mr Davies said. “I am thrilled that we have completed and opened a facility that allows everyone to enjoy the incredible scenery this beautiful precinct has to offer.”

ZO440628

A NEW wheelchair-accessible viewing platform overlooking the Aireys Inlet Lighthouse and Eagle Rock Marine Sanctuary is now open. The Great Ocean Road Coast Committee (GORCC) constructed the new platform, which provides a 180-degree view of the marine sanctuary and lighthouse. GORCC chief executive officer Richard Davies said the platform achieved safety and sustainability while providing an outstanding viewing experience for people of all mobility. “The new steel framed and timberdecked walkway extends 30 metres from

near the base of the lighthouse toward the ocean and leads to a circular viewing platform. “The viewing platform has been designed to gain elevation as the ground falls away from it. “This innovative design results in minimal environmental impact, maximising revegetation capacity and minimising cliff erosion issues.” GORCC invited tenders for the project in March. The lookout was constructed by Torquay Homes, and landscaping and grounds work was undertaken by GORCC’s outdoor works team. New revegetation areas have been

Homestyle–Kensington Grange focuses on providing high quality, specialist aged care in a relaxed, caring and homelike environment for the older members of our community who require assistance as they adapt to lifestyle changes. In achieving this objective, we recognise not only the changing physiological, social and psychological needs of the residents, and family members and friends, but also recognise the ongoing importance of continual professional development and support of all our staff. The residents in our facility receive high quality personal care through the provision of the latest

nursing and personal care practices implemented in our residential aged care setting. We recognise that the transition from their home to Kensington Grange can be unsettling; this can equally affect family and friends. We are committed to providing the support needed for residents and family to make the necessary changes during this time. Lifestyle co-ordinator Lorelle Beardsell runs an activity program which encourages residents to participate in social activities that promote and protect their dignity and to participate through interest and choice with in-house, and community life outside the facility. The ‘In-house’ program, just to name a few

activities, may include barbecues, picnics, bus trips, library visits, craft, bingo, scrabble, word games, happy hour, exercise and discussion groups, daily walks, carpet bowls, movies, sing-a-longs and visiting entertainers, based on individual requests and residents’ needs. The resident’s right of refusal is respected. If the resident would like to make other informal choices, and have access to other services, the staff, will endeavour to assist them. Residents’ interests are encouraged and transport may be arranged to enable residents to participate in social activities outside the facility, such as senior citizens, day care centres, garden club, bowling clubs, and church.

All meals are prepared from fresh produce and cooked daily on site by our qualified catering staff. Our menu is organised on a four-week rotating basis and planned to provide a balanced diet which offers a wide variety of choices. A copy of the menu can be found in each dining area.

Brand Geelong project begins BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Brand Geelong project will begin by identifying Geelong’s unique qualities and using them to develop a strategy that sells the region to the world. About 80 representatives from business, industry, government, education, advocacy groups and media took part in a forum on Friday at Simonds Stadium to develop the project. City of Greater Geelong mayor Darryn Lyons said Brand Geelong was vital for the region. “Globalisation and technology have dissolved

traditional borders. So a business or a skilled worker can nowadays choose to base themselves wherever the conditions are most suitable. “Geelong already punches above its weight in many areas of endeavour – with the collective will of all our local stakeholders, we can not only shine a light on what is already happening but build a brand to ensure a ‘made in Geelong’ label is synonymous with innovation and quality.” The Brand Geelong initiative will first identify the perceptions people hold about Geelong; not just those who live here but people

from other regions and cities. “Over the next few months a series of focus groups will be held to ascertain what people think about Geelong, and there will be a broader community survey so everyone can add their voice,” Cr Lyons said. At the forum, South Barwon MP Andrew Katos announced the state government would contribute $40,000 to the project, which will add to the $40,000 already committed by project partners. “A well-perceived brand in Geelong strengthens the region’s offer to be seen as a preferred place to

live, work, study and invest,” he said. The first phase of Brand Geelong will involve the collection of detailed research data to prepare a business case for phase two: the development and implementation of the brand. Brand Tasmania Council members Robert Heazlewood and Rob Pennicott spoke at the forum, and also took part in a panel discussion along with Cr Lyons, Regional Development Victoria’s Nadia Reid, Deakin University director of marketing Andrea Turley, marketing expert Leigh McClusky and GMHBA chief executive officer Mark Valena.

GDV regional office means there’s a new dog in town BY JAMES TAYLOR

GUIDE Dogs Victoria (GDV) has chosen Geelong as the home of the organisation’s first regional office. The Moorabool Street office will support the growing number of GDV clients in the Barwon region, which presently number about 400 and are expected to increase by 5-10 per cent in the next year. The office was launched at the nearby Transport Accident Commission building with speeches by GDV president Russell Walker, GDV chief executive officer Karen Hayes, Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier Craig Ondarchie and City of Greater Geelong mayor Darryn Lyons. Many GDV clients and their dogs were also in the audience, and GDV’s Paul Tomlins gave a demonstration of the organisation’s training program with guide dog Fraser. Ms Hayes said GDV was exciting to be joining

the growing number of health service providers in Geelong. “We’re very proud to be part of this change in Geelong’s future.” She estimated only 17 per cent of GDV’s clients would be eligible for funding by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in its existing proposed format. She said GDV being in Geelong would enable it to better advocate the fact that even with the introduction of the NDIS, GDV and other similar organisations would continue to play a crucial role in the delivery of essential services to people with vision impairment and disability. “Our presence will provide ease of access for those clients.” She said there were an estimated 220,000 blind or vision impaired people in Victoria, and this number would grow to 350,000 by 2020.

Jump on the Small Business Bus this weekend BY JAMES TAYLOR SMALL business operators in the Geelong region can get free mentoring, support and advice about key state government services when the Small Business Bus visits Geelong on Saturday. The bus offers information about Small Business Victoria’s year-round services and its low-cost seminars, workshops and programs. There is also extensive literature on board about planning, starting and growing a business, with information on everything from registering for taxation to formulating a business plan. Member for Western Victoria David Koch said the bus provided expert advice from a pool of

business specialists from the Small Business Mentoring Service. “These mentors have extensive experience in running their own small business or working in senior management in business. “They are skilled in marketing, finance, human resources and sales.” Minister for Small Business Russell Northe said the services provided by the bus reflected the state government’s support for an increasingly robust and innovative small business sector. He said the bus would be on hand during the Geelong Small Business Festival. “The program in Geelong includes 48 events, seminars and networking opportunities for those

seeking to start or grow their business. “Key event highlights will include: The Greatness Principle – Enterprise Geelong, a live podcast; Making it Count! A Smarter approach to online business; Cloud Accounting: Work smarter not harder; and Business Café: Personal brand and why it’s important. “There are more than 18,310 small businesses in

Parent evenings to give insights on adolescence BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Barwon Adolescent Task Force (BATForce), Barwon Youth and Victoria Police have partnered with the Surf Coast Shire to present a series of parent/carer evenings that promise to promote lots of discussion, a few laughs and some learning along the way. As Torquay’s young population enters the exciting world of adolescence, it is critical that the community is well prepared to support them on their journey. This means being ready to have the right conversations at the right time, knowing how to deal with the bumps along the way, how to promote healthy strong relationships and ensuing that children have the skills to take educated risks, know when to say no and how to look after their mates. The first of the three forums, ‘Celebrating Gen WiFi’ with BATForce’s Leigh Bartlett, was held last week.

The Small Business Bus will visit Geelong as part of the Geelong Small Business Festival.

the Geelong region and more than 520,000 small businesses across Victoria, which represent 96 per cent of the state’s businesses.” The Small Business Bus will be outside Banjo's Bakery, 113 Moorabool Street, Geelong on Saturday between 10am-4pm. For more information or to book a mentoring session, head to business.vic.gov.au/sbb or phone 13 22 15.

The next will be about cyber safety and will be held on August 20. Parents will spend 120 hours teaching children to drive a car, but have been invited to this session to find out how they can support children as they begin to navigate the cyber world. Guest speaker Cathy Hastie has been working in the area of cyber safety with Victoria Police for many years, and presents a solutions-based approach to managed technology in the home full of ideas and strategies that are easy to implement. The third and final session on August 27 will be about alcohol and other drugs. This session will give parents the information to begin discussions with their children – the myths and facts they need to get started, as well as tips for when children begin to go to parties. Both sessions will be held at the Surf Coast Shire offices in Merrijg Drive, Torquay from 7-8.45pm. For more information or to RSVP, email leigh@batforce.org.au or phone 5221 4339.

The Torquay Lions share; will Routleys?

‡$ODUP6\VWHPV ‡&DPHUDV ‡6HFXULW\*XDUGV ‡0RELOH3DWUROV

Dear Editor,

Protecting the Surfcoast & the Bellarine since 1991. Security for all your needs. Free 24hr onsite security assessment or visit our showroom

I have never heard such petty selfishness as contained in Sam Routley’s comments in the Surf Coast Times front page story “Cold Pies” (August 7). To think that Routleys Bakery is prepared to deny Lions volunteers permission to barbecue sausages to raise much needed money for local organisations would affect their business was laughable (it probably will now!). The idea that a barbecue of approximately eight hours maximum duration a month should (in theory) affect Routleys profits is a very poor excuse. As the article states, money raised by Lions has helped many community organisation as well as needy, disabled and terminally ill individuals. Some of the money has been used recently to purchase a defibrillator for community use. I wonder if Mr Routley’s family has been involved in their local community activities and realises just how much help the donations throughout the community are welcomed. Surely Routleys’ takings and profit margins are large enough to cope with this small form of perceived competition. Mr Routley probably does not realise that the members on barbecue duty have actually purchased their morning cup of coffee from Routleys, so basically he is benefitting by these sales. As with other food stalls that appear in Gilbert Street from time to time, people will purchase a sausage to support the idea that all profits will be returned to the community. Perhaps Mr Routley would like to put his hand in his pocket and make up the Lions shortfall of $7,000 from the increased profit his business will make in the absence of the Lions barbecue twice a month.

care about your community and would like to see a trial take place. Who knows, we could bring back an old commodity – compassion.

Bring back compassion Dear Editor, I would like to make a suggestion in response the Surf Coast Times front page article, “Cold Pies” (August 7). It may provide a solution to more than one problem. Many fortunate residents of the Surf Coast who have travelled to small Italian villages will have experienced every Saturday morning the piazza (village square) is closed to traffic and community life takes over for a few hours. Imagine the same thing happening in Gilbert Street: the cafes spreading tables and chairs across the street at no extra cost to the business, people wandering between the traders, stopping for a chat, sipping lattes and supporting local businesses. Even better, Torquay Lions Club could set up their barbecue trailer in the middle of the street away from other eateries and cook sausages, continuing to raise much appreciated dollars for community groups and the disadvantaged. I have been co-ordinator of Spring Creek Community House for many years. These last few weeks I have seen more people come to the house needing food, warmth, accommodation and in some cases simply someone to listen. Times are tough and some people sleep rough in our little paradise by the sea and for those of us who are comfortable, we can easily afford to spare a few gold coins for those in our community down on their luck, which could be anyone one of us given unseen circumstances. Organisations like Lions, Rotary and Torquay Community Enterprise over the years, while not their core purpose, have quietly helped people. Why not allow these groups, who do so much, including Torquay Food Aid, St Vincent’s and the Salvation Army, to have a stall in the community mall and we could all work together to help our most vulnerable citizens? The dollars raised by the Lions sausage sizzles are greatly needed here in downtown Torquay and they need our support. Let your ward councillor know you

A good feature Dear Editor, It was good to see the feature article, “Never Stop Learning with U3A” in the Surf Coast Times and Bellarine Times (August 7). This fits well with the Celebrating Seniors section of the paper. There has been a very encouraging amount of interest in our newly established branch on the Surf Coast and 150 people are now members of U3A Surf Coast. Many areas are covered and generous tutors volunteer their time and expertise. This is an aspect the steering committee wants to encourage. The success of U3A Surf Coast is dependent on people sharing their interests and knowledge. Jenny Trezise did a wonderful job setting up our branch. Her contract has finished and the steering committee of volunteers now does the necessary organising. We no longer have a telephone. Each term our courses change and some take a break while others are added. So it is important to check our website. Our web address is u3asurfcoast. org.au and our email is info@u3asurfcoast.org. au. Another way to get in touch is to call in at the Community House with the best times Monday and Friday mornings when a representative from U3A is in attendance. We plan to offer courses in Anglesea and Winchelsea in Term 1 next year. We intend to advertise courses and venues for 2015 towards the end of the year. Use this opportunity to further your life skills, meet others and enjoy continuing learning. Rosemary Faris Torquay

The police perspective Dear Editor, I have read and listened to a number of comments over recent times about changes to the policing service on the Bellarine Peninsula. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve read that Portarlington, Drysdale and Queenscliff police stations are supposedly losing members and even closing altogether. I want to dispel some of these myths and put some facts behind what the changes will mean to the Bellarine communities. There is no truth in statements saying any police station on the Bellarine Peninsula is closing. The Portarlington, Drysdale and Queenscliff Police stations will be open for public attendance at the following times: â&#x20AC;˘ Portarlington Police Station and Queenscliff Police stations will open between 8am and 4pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays â&#x20AC;˘ Drysdale Police Station will open between 8am and 4pm on Mondays and Wednesdays â&#x20AC;˘ Bellarine Police Station (formerly Ocean Grove) will now be open for the expanded hours of 6am to 10pm, seven days a week. These designated opening hours were introduced following feedback from the Bellarine Peninsula community. Residents have access to counter services, including document signing, advice, lost property and to discuss local issues at these times. It is important to note that Bellarine Peninsula communities have and will continue to have a 24hour police response provided by resources across the Geelong Police Service Area (PSA). To provide a better policing service on the Bellarine Peninsula, we will now be increasing the number of patrols across the whole peninsula. Intelligent, timely tasking of the divisional vans along with improved supervision will ensure a consistent policing presence across the whole of the Bellarine Peninsula and a safer community. Strong community relationships have been forged over a number of years between

the Portarlington, Drysdale and Queenscliff police members and their communities. They are vital to any community and will continue unhindered. There will be no reduction in the number of police on the Bellarine Peninsula. In fact, we will receive extra staff from other areas of Greater Geelong at the times when they are most needed, including at community events like the Queenscliff Music Festival and the Celtic Festival at Portarlington. Policing is about flexibility and the proper deployment of resources where and when they are needed. I know the Bellarine Peninsula communities will have a better policing service as a result of the changes made. I ask that you be mindful that the police members working on the Bellarine are a professional and dedicated group, which I am very proud to be a part of. Most of us have a vested interest in keeping the Bellarine safe for all. We live here with our own families. Senior Sergeant Angelo Ferrara Officer In Charge â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bellarine Police Station

The wind blows, the turbine slows Dear Editor, When our new Surf Coast Shire offices were completed, I was confused by the expensive looking spinning device on the roof. Someone explained to me that when all the occupants of the offices were working feverishly, they produced enough energy to make the device turn. Should I be concerned that I now havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen it move for some months? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doubt the staffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gusto, but if the device is faulty, surely there was a warranty with it being quite new. Chris Jan Juc

Concerns for Anglesea Dear Editor, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping that this letter may be read by Terry Mulder, my local member, who has the invitation in this paper to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please feel free to contact me to discuss any state government concerns you may haveâ&#x20AC;?. Unfortunately, my attempts to correspond with Mr Mulder regarding the possible imminent sale of the Anglesea coal mine and power station have not been attended to. It seems that Mr Mulder is unwilling to discuss or disclose what is happening with the coal mine and power station so I am left wondering what he means by the invitation. Is this not a state government issue? Is this not an issue affecting the health, wellbeing and future prosperity of Victorians? Does this not affect one of the greatest tourist drawcards in this state and country? Nick Day Anglesea

Aireys feels it in its waters Dear Editor, Barwon Water general manager infrastructure services Paul Northey (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aireys Inlet/Fairhaven supply upgradeâ&#x20AC;?, Letters, August 7) makes clear the pipeline is Barwon Waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preferred option. He states our supply system is not drought-proof, implying this is insecure. Supply systems are not drought-proof but the Aireys Inlet/Fairhvaven supply system has not endured prolonged and severe restrictions over many years that occurred elsewhere within the Greater Geelong catchment. Water security for the Aireys Inlet/Fairhaven system was addressed by Barwon Water in its Water Supply Demand Strategy 2012-2062-Incorporating Drought Response Plans, with â&#x20AC;&#x153;catchment and reservoir storage expected to provide adequate supply well into the future under all scenarios testedâ&#x20AC;?. Barwon Water,

25

in its Water Security Outlook December 2013 added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even under the most extreme climatic scenario, this system will remain secure for many yearsâ&#x20AC;?. Ratepayers here in the 1970s each paid a special levy of $2,000 towards water supply infrastructure. They also, in the 1990s, each paid $1,500 towards the sewage infrastructure. Yet such substantial contributions are belittled by Barwon Water. Cross-subsidies have and will always exist in the provision of essential services, especially in regional and remote areas. If the pipeline proceeds, Barwon Water still has to maintain the Painkalac Reservoir. In other words, we will not be able access our own safe and secure water supply but be connected to a system that has a track record of experiencing restrictions we have not endured. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to fathom the logic in such an outcome.

highly respected community support, due to her efforts in building an organisation to a standard that offers excellent engagement in all aspects of natural resource management. Her determination in addressing a complex rabbit issue in her community led her to pioneer a community-led approach in her area. Its success resulted in a shift towards natural resource management in the area, with the approach being used as a leading pest control model for groups across Victoria. Ms Coulson said she was delighted to be a finalist in this year’s National Landcare Awards. “Empowering the local community to embrace Landcare and work collectively towards a sustainable future has been the forefront of my work over the years.” Landcare Australia chief executive officer Tessa Jakszewicz, said the awards – part of this year’s National Landcare Conference – was a key event in the celebration of 25 years of Landcare. “The awards highlight the importance of the practical, yet important changes Landcarers are making in their local areas and beyond.” To vote in the awards, head to landcareonline.com.au.

New Forrest Men’s Shed gets funding for plumbing BY JAMES TAYLOR

Mandy Coulson has been praised for her work with the Surf Coast and Inland Plains Network.

THE new Forrest Men’s Shed has received a $6,000 federal government grant for the supply and installation of plumbing at the site, which is expected to open by the end of the year. Corangamite federal member Sarah Henderson announced the grant while visiting Forrest last week. “Forrest Men’s Shed provides members with an environment where they can work on meaningful projects together while enjoying mateship and camaraderie,” she said. “The members of Forrest Men’s Shed share their skills, including woodwork and metalwork, and make an important contribution to the community.” The new Forrest Men’s Shed building, to be built next to the existing shed in Blundy Street, includes $60,000 of funding from the state government and will double the space available for projects. The grant is one of 102 grants announced under the latest round of the federal government’s National Shed Development Program. Australian Men’s Shed Association administers the program to foster learning and the sharing of information, including health information. Forrest Men’s Shed is open for woodwork, carpentry and metalwork on Thursdays from 10am3pm. For more information, phone Ross Fraser on 0419 886 296 or email arfie@sctelco.net.au.

Avalon Airshow calls for volunteers $50 OFF Valid until December 31

BY JAMES TAYLOR

NEXT year’s Australian International Airshow is calling for volunteers, with about 800 people needed for the running of the Avalon-based event. Volunteers carry out a wide range of important duties, including aircraft and ground operations, car park supervision and media liaison. All applicants should be at least 18 years old. Airshow chief executive officer Ian Honnery said previous aviation experience was not essential, but a willingness to learn was. “Airshow volunteers have ultimate access to the event and the opportunity to play an important part in its success.” He said Airshow volunteers will have a key role in a special tribute to the heroes of military aviation at the 2015 event, to be held from February 24-March 1.

COMEDY HYPNOTISM

“This will be the major theme of the event and as such it will be the first significant observance of the Gallipoli campaign in its centenary year. “It will feature an emotional tribute to our gallant aviators, the heroes of the sky, over the past 100 years, from 1915 to the present day.” A large number of historic warbirds from home and aboard will take part in the event. Among them are a group of faithfully recreated World War I replicas that will perform simulated dogfights and other attack manoeuvres. Mr Honnery praised Airshow volunteers past and Valid until December 31 present. “They are the public face of the event; their good nature and common sense are among our greatest assets,” he said. “Without them, there would be no show.” To fill out the 2015 volunteer registration form,

Little Traveller gives parents a break BY TIFFANY PILCHER A NEW local baby equipment hire business is taking away one of the biggest hassles of travelling with children: lugging everything you need with you on the trip. Little Traveller hires out a range of equipment including baby capsules and child seats, prams and strollers, cots, portable cots, bassinets, co-sleepers, high chairs, safety gates, monitors and more. All equipment available for hire is new and purchased from reputable and trusted suppliers and meets Australian safety standards. The business is locally owned and operated by Jan Juc parents Rachel and Scott Cameron. They came up with the idea after ďŹ nding out ďŹ rst-hand the difďŹ culties of travelling with babies and small children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to offer high quality, clean, safe and practical products that we, ourselves, would be happy to use while travelling,â&#x20AC;? Rachel said.

The range is suitable to be hired by holidaymakers, locals who need baby equipment but do not want to commit to purchasing the expensive items, and grandparents and carers who have children holidaying with them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Children grow so quickly, so rather than paying hundreds of dollars for something they will grow out of in a few months, you can just hire what you need for that time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about taking a load off for parents and giving them ďŹ&#x201A;exible options that will suit a range of situations.â&#x20AC;? Rachel and Scott are Australian Child Restraint Resource Initiative (ACRI) certiďŹ ed installers and also offer a professional child restraint installation service from $30. Installation is complimentary in Torquay and Jan Juc with Little Traveller hired restraints. For more information, search for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Little Travellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Facebook. The Little Traveller website will be active soon at littletraveller.com.au.

Neontide rises at Surfcoast Kids Fashion BY TIFFANY PILCHER

Neontide designer Sophie Marshall and Surfcoast Kids Fashion owner Sarah Olsson at the labelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s launch last month.

GETTING in the water is now a whole lot more fun with a new locally designed swimwear label for women and youth, and children launching at Surfcoast Kids Fashion last month. Neontide swimwear, beachwear and thongs are functional, with a focus on high-quality ďŹ ts. The fashion-forward label is designed by the talented team of Jennifer Parkes, Angela Lyons and Jan Juc surf industry veteran Sophie Marshall. Surfcoast Kids Fashion owner Sarah Olsson said there was plenty of local support for the new collection at the launch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We showcased the products and had some drinks

and people were really impressed with the range. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fantastic, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a local brand, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-designed, well-made and looks great. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The pieces are a little bit different too, especially for kids, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a bit trendier than the usual cutesy designs that are available. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at a really good price point, the quality you are getting for the price is excellent.â&#x20AC;? Ms Olsson said she would like to thank all those who supported two local businesses by coming along to the event. Neontide is stocked exclusively in Torquay at Surfcoast Kids Fashion, Shop 4, Bell Street. For more information, phone 5264 8303 or head to surfcoastkids.com.

RURAL ROUND-UP

Grain research funding boost BY DEAN WEBSTER VICTORIAN grain growers are set to benefit from a new five year agreement that will increase innovative research and development (R&D) in the industry. Federal Minister for Agriculture Barnaby Joyce and Victorian Minister for Agriculture and Food Security Peter Walsh announced the bilateral agreement between the Grains Research & Development Corporation (GRDC) and the state government’s Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI). “GRDC and DEPI will work together over the next five years on grains research and development,

and focus on building a skilled workforce and providing grain growers with on-the-ground research that will help them in the future,” Mr Joyce said. “Research is a priority for me – we know there is a strong link between R&D and agricultural productivity growth, and recognise research is a key driver to industry and farm-gate profitability. “This agreement heralds co-operation that will ensure maximum returns from the $60 million in investments made by the two organisations. “The grains industry is one of Australia’s most important agricultural sectors, with our wheat exports in 2012–13 worth around $6.7 billion, canola exports in 2012–13 worth around $2 billion

and barley exports in the same year worth around $1.6 billion.” Mr Walsh said the state government was committed to working with industry and co-funding strategic research that will accelerate productivity growth in the grains sector and boost the profitability of growers. “At $2.2 billion, the grains industry was Victoria’s most valuable agricultural export earner for 2012-13 but there is capacity to grow value and volume if we are smart about strategic investment in productivity-focused R&D.” Barnaby Joyce and Peter Walsh sign an agreement for increased funding for grains research.

Colac saleyard roof launched BY DEAN WEBSTER COLAC Otway Shire Council has launched a new era of livestock trade at the municipal saleyards. During the official launch of the saleyard roof, council announced that that saleyards would be rebranded the ‘Colac Regional Saleyards’. This follows a competition that called on community input into the new name of the former Colac Livestock Selling Centre. The name was announced at a special ceremony yard-side to commemorate the completion of the 7,300 square metre roof, which now shelters the full length of pens at the saleyards. Colac Otway Shire mayor Lyn Russell was pleased with the result. “The roof project marked a significant investment by council into the industry, and to mark that we thought it appropriate to review the name,” Cr Russell said.

Polwarth MP Terry Mulder, Colac Otway mayor Lyn Russell, Colac Stock Agents Association president Terry Dove and Colac Regional Saleyards superintendent Graeme Riches rugged up for the official roof launch.

“The name Colac Regional Saleyards was among several entries reviewed by a panel, including stock agents and council representatives. “It rebrands our stance in the region, and takes us forward with strength in the market. “It’s a highly competitive era for livestock trade, buyers have more options, and competition between the regions is strong. “I feel confident in Colac’s new state-of-the-art facilities, and its new name, to go forward in a highly competitive manner.” Colac Stock Agents Association president Terry Dove said the new roof put the Colac facility ahead of the rest. “With the recent construction of the saleyards roof we are well placed to be the premium selling facility in the region. “We’re positioning ourselves for the future and renaming the saleyards marks an exciting opportunity for all of our industry.”

RURAL ROUND-UP

35

Livestock market report THIS week’s yarding of 232 cattle at Ballarat was up by 111 head on last sale and there was a noticeable lift in quality. Although an increased number, there was still a small offering of mixed quality cattle with the yarding comprised of 79 steers, 88 heifers, 62 cows and three heavy-weight bulls. A core field of buyers operated and displayed keen competition, although prices remained mostly steady for trade cattle, grown steers and grown heifers. Cows lifted five to 10 cents a kilogram, especially the better covered grades. Price ranges were very similar to last week for young cattle with the better quality extending the

range due to the lift in quality. Restockers, however, did bid more strongly at times and some of their top prices were up around 10 cents per kilogram higher. Most of the C2 and C3 young cattle sold from 160 to 185 cents with processors going to 190 cents and restockers topping at 199 cents per kilogram. The D2 lines were from 140 to 160 cents with the best of the restocking prices out to 181 cents per kilogram. The odd few C3 and C4 grown steers that did come forward sold from 185 to 188 cents per kilogram. Most grown heifers were of three and four

score condition with prices at 160 to 175 cents in their mainly average to good quality selection. Many of the cows were of average to very good finish and the higher expected yields this week saw most two to five scores range between 295 and 325 cents per kilogram carcass weight. The two B2 bulls sold at 150 and 167cents with the C2 Bull making 148 cents per kilogram. Last week’s yarding of 313 cattle at Colac was significantly down by 231 head on the previous sale. Toughing it through the winter has reduced supply and the quality was mixed, though most young cattle were of poor to only average quality and fairly lean in condition.

Most of the regular field of buyers attended the sale and paid higher prices for export grades. Young cattle price trends were hard to pick due to the small number offered but generally they were dearer, although poor one scores were discounted. Processors purchased nearly all of the 49 young cattle despite half the offering easily being good enough to suit the restockers. The C2 and odd C3 that was penned made from 175 to 190 cents with the top and bottom sales at 195 and 155 cents per kilogram, respectively. The D2 grades were from 130 to 156 cents and the 56 grown steers regained two to 10 cents per kilogram for the C3 and odd C4 grades that were yarded.

Colac’s market was significantly down in numbers as farmers hold cattle on feed through the winter.

healthy living Kate Toholka is leading women to a life of self-empowerment with her new e-book I am a Trailblazer.

Torquay trailblazer guides women to success BY TIFFANY PILCHER SURF Coast holistic health and life coach, occupational therapist and author Kate Toholka is helping women maximise their potential and realise their goals with her latest e-book, released last week. I am a Trailblazer guides women through a six-week course to help them gain confidence in themselves and their abilities, and start making changes to find the success they want – without the “fluff”. After becoming disillusioned working

in the mental health industry, Ms Toholka sought to use her passion for holistic living and psychology to empower women’s lives. She began coaching women in creating lasting, positive relationships with themselves through actively changing their thinking before branching out to publishing a blog and other material to reach as many women as possible. She said the book encapsulated her ethos and gave people the tools they needed to move forward in all areas of their lives as they navigate through the chapters of ‘Awareness’,

‘Meaning’, ‘Acceptance’, ‘Inspire’, ‘Action’ and ‘Positivity’. “I'm excited about this – it feels good handing women these vital tools to regaining their confidence and it's so heart-warming to hear women say ‘I did it, I actually did it’. “I hope the book will encourage women to take the first step. The first step is always the scariest and it just needs a boost of confidence to make it happen.” I am a Trailblazer, along with Kate’s other publications, are available at katetoholka.com.

Lead with WDV women’s program WOMEN with Disabilities Victoria (WDV) is offering a four-day leadership program later this year to women who wish to lead in their own communities. The Enabling Women program aims to deepen women’s understanding of issues affecting women with disabilities, to empower women to lead and advocate in their own community, and to empower women to advocate as members of WDV. The leadership program is offered in easy English for those who have difficulty reading or remembering written information. This program recognises that women learn in different ways and in different places. As such, a variety of learning styles will be offered, with a key focus being on learning from each other. Topics covered will include: • Getting to know you • The social model of disability • Self-identity • Human rights • Communication • Advocacy (speaking up for your rights), and • Leadership. The program provides opportunity for women from diverse backgrounds with disabilities to come together. Participants will share their mutual experience of disability and find solutions together to the problems of social disadvantage. Women have been encouraged to join the program and rise to their true leadership potential. It will be held at the Surf Coast Shire council offices in Torquay from October 22 between 10am-3pm. For more information, phone Jane Oldfield on 9286 7807 or email jane.oldfield@wdv.org.au.

From humble beginnings a difference is made BY BARBARA GRACE OUR school has grown from humble beginnings when I began with a dream of sharing how creativity can help us work through personal or professional issues. While feedback from our courses is extremely positive, reaching out to more and more people has always been our goal. What began as a local business is now reaching people across Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the UK. People are sharing their journeys and supporting each other along the way. We’re truly

making a difference in people’s lives. I’m writing this to share one fact with you: that nothing changes unless you’re prepared to make the decision to change, to do something different and to step outside your comfort zone. Have I made mistakes? You bet I have – and I know that more will follow because I’m imperfect – and that’s okay. Accepting that the best-laid plans may need changing is part of growing and reaching new frontiers. Yet failure only happens when you stop. And I’ve learnt that lesson. During my younger days I drove myself – yet so many times gave up just before things could have turned for the good. How many of us can relate to that? Butting your head against a wall – all the time telling yourself that you’ll never be any good. Negative self-talk is a dream killer and keeps you stuck. I often write about creativity and its important role

in our lives to get back in touch with who we are and what we want. At times I’ve wondered whether it’s just me that enjoys drawing and making things – but as the school’s reach continues to broaden, I know that it’s the magic juice that pulls together all the elements because we’re taking time to listen, time to reflect and time to create possibility in our lives. In our present course, the recurring themes are procrastination, perfectionism and inadequacy – all dream killers. It’s time to tip out what’s holding us back and open ourselves to possibility because if you want something different then it’s time to start doing things differently. The school’s next program is ‘Creative Genius or Mindful Master’ – perhaps it’s for you. Visit schoolofmodernpsychology.com.au for more information.

Fighting off the winter blues BY DR ERIN COFFEY

AS WE enter into the coldest month of the year, although the days are starting to get longer and the days until Christmas can nearly start being counted down, it doesn’t make it any easier to get out of bed when the thermometer shows a single digit. But is it just the cold temperatures that cause us to struggle out of bed this time of year? Or is it something more serious we should all be wary of? The medical term is seasonal affective

disorder (or SAD). During winter we rug up. We wear numerous layers of clothing just to ward off the chill, but in so doing, we prevent sunlight – albeit weak in winter – from reaching our skin. And that can have poor health outcomes. The inability of our bodies to absorb enough sunlight (vitamin D is produced by sunlight and we absorb it through bare skin) has been associated with low levels of melatonin and serotonin, carbohydrate craving, weight gain and sleep disturbance. A vitamin D supplement is the other

method of augmenting our vitamin D uptake as we can’t get enough from our diet, unless you eat a lot of fatty fish, beef liver, egg yolks, fortified milk, orange juice, cereals or baby formula. A study of 1,200 people showed 40 per cent of men and 57 per cent of women were vitamin D deficient; 69 people were suffering from minor depression and 26 from major depression. Generally, these people had about 14 per cent less vitamin D than would be considered healthy. Vitamin D has numerous roles such as

assisting in calcium absorption in the gut which helps prevent osteoporosis. There are also a number of studies that suggest higher vitamin D levels improve women’s fertility, and assist fighting diseases such as cancer and heart disease. So if you feel a little low and can’t be bothered getting out of bed, make an appointment with your doctor to determine if you are one of the 4 million people in Australia who is vitamin D deficient.

Comedians Kate McLennan and Wes Snelling will be getting cosy with the audience when they perform their show, Standard Double, at the Lorne Festival of Performing Arts this month.

BY TIFFANY PILCHER THE Lorne Festival of Performing Arts is getting even more intimate this year, with a hilarious show set in the confines of a hotel room at the Cumberland Lorne Resort. Comedians Wes Snelling and Kate McLennan invite audiences to get up close and very personal for their show, Standard Double. The act takes a fly-on-the-wall look at people misbehaving when they're away from home, as a procession of guests experience a variety of hilarious and heartfelt scenarios that might play out in a hotel room. Snelling and McLennan first met about seven

years ago and as character comedians, they were drawn to each other’s similar sense of humour. Their shared respect and love of silliness led them to previous collaborations, though this is their biggest undertaking yet. “We found each other on the circuit and have spent a lot of time having a laugh together backstage and after festivals,” Snelling said. “It’s a good thing we have the relationship we do, we perform the show in singlets and undies and it can be a bit naughty so it helps to be good friends. “This idea came about one night after a festival when we were hanging out in the bar at the hotel where all the comedians tend to be. “Kate said ‘we have to do a show together, we

should do a show together, we really have to do a show’, like she always does,” he said, laughing. “Then she said, ‘it should be based in a hotel room, that’s where it should be, yeah a hotel room, definitely’, and that was it, the spark was there.” While developing the idea they won a prestigious Moosehead Award grant, which allowed them to have prominent English comedian Mark Watson fly in from the UK to direct the production. Watson was a perfect fit for the pair after having worked on several location-specific comedies and Snelling said they had been inspired to begin work on another show, which they also hope to perform at a coming Lorne Festival of Performing Arts. “The next concept Kate and I have come up with

is set on a boat, and the plan is to perform it on a boat, so I guess it’s working for us. “The beauty of it is that every hotel, every location has its own thing going on and we get there early and see what it has that’s special and different to offer. “That way every show is unique and that’s what keeps it alive, it has room to breathe.” Wes Snelling and Kate McLennan will perform Standard Double on August 30 at the Cumberland Lorne Resort from 1.45pm to 2.45pm. The Lorne Performing Arts Festival is on August 29 to 31 and tickets are selling fast. To book and for more information, head to lovelornefestival.com.

A BELLARINE ukulele team will join Tex Perkins and Charlie Owen at the Music to a Tee concert tomorrow night to raise money to support local people with an acquired brain injury.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

JON HELMER

Going Green in the Yarra WINTER’S a great time to take in the natural beauty that is the bare bones of a vineyard that’s been freshly pruned, with the row upon row of vines neatly adorning some paddock, hill or vale, bunkered down for the winter spell in readiness for bud burst in the coming Spring. Up in the Yarra Valley, this is exactly the picture you’ll see, but even though it looks like it’s all quiet on the western front, there’s a strong undercurrent of hard work going on in respect to soil preparations, fertilising, mulching and the like. In fact, up at De Bortoli’s Yarra Valley operation, there’s been a real change of approach to their winemaking and vineyard management philosophies, instituted over the last few years as a result of a commitment to sustainable viticultural practices. More specifically, winemaker Steve Webber has been championing the push for ‘green’ sustainable viticulture for some time now and the results have been impressive, which in footy-speak means ‘reward for effort’. By heavily investing in reducing their waste, water consumption, minimising their carbon footprint, improving the soils, producing their own composts, mulch and sowing cover crops in between the vine rows has seen vast improvements in the quality of fruit they are producing. At the end of the day, it just makes good business sense as it all helps to reduce their costs while producing a superior product. This focus on intensive work and attention to detail in the vineyard, juxtaposed against a more minimalist approach in the winery allowing for more natural expression and less overt winemaking influence sees the wines showing more pure regional character, with more authentic flavour and complexity. De Bortoli’s approach is born from a desire to make wines that are all about ‘feel’, ‘texture’ and a ‘sense of place’. They realise that wine isn’t just about tasting the obvious flavour components within it, rather, it’s more about the completeness, the finesse, the poise, balance and overall deliciousness of a wine. To achieve this requires a more in-depth understanding of the soil, ripeness and health of the vines, when to pick and the surrounds in general, ie the ‘terroir’. Ultimately, that will decide the true outcome of

a wine. So let’s get behind Steve and his team as they seek to improve their wines by getting back to a simpler, more hands-off approach – which means, sometimes, it’s hard work doing nothing! Long may their journey continue.

De Bortoli Yarra Valley Estate Chardonnay 2013 ($25) The 2013 vintage up in the Yarra was a warmer, more generous and giving season with a bit more ripeness in the fruit which produced wines with richer flavour, and smoother lines. This Chardonnay is all about just that with rich melon/stone fruits and an edge of cleansing acidity and a good spread of complex flavours rounding out the finish.

De Bortoli Yarra Valley Estate Pinot Noir 2013 ($25) Renowned for their quality pinot noirs across their portfolio, this follows the expectations from the 2013 vintage with immediate brightness, and complex perfumed aromatics. Rich, ripe, plump plums and dark cherry fruit hold sway with a generous suppleness on the finish.

De Bortoli Yarra Valley Estate Syrah 2012 ($25) This definitely shows classic cool climate spicy white pepper notes initially, yet it builds with flavour as the wine opens up and fleshes out with greater dark fruits present and more generosity on the palate. One to watch.

De Bortoli Yarra Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 ($25) Full, textured black currant/plum driven flavours abound with a nuance of dark chocolate and savoury complexity whirling around. Classic Yarra Cabernet’s all show lovely medium bodied elegance and finesse and this is definitely a wine to reference this with, given its price point. Give it some time to breathe and flesh out.

Get the good Oyl on yoga and food LONG ago I sat myself down and explored why I chose to run a catering business. The crazy hours, constant striving for excellence and demanding clients take their toll. My conclusion was I thrive on adrenalin. It is incredible what can be achieved if scared stiff at the thought of letting someone down. This is particularly relevant when catering for a wedding where the bride insists on perfection!

Beer obsession pays off for Vue Grand BY JAMES TAYLOR

AFTER starting a number of years ago with a humble Queenscliff Honeywheat Ale from Bellarine Brew Co., the beer list at Vue Grand has been named the best in Australia. Last month, Gourmet Traveller WINE magazine and premium wine distributor Fine Wine Partners announced the Queenscliff venue was among the winners at the 2014 Australia’s Wine List of the Year Awards. Established in 1994, the awards have a local and international panel of 30 industry figures, headed by leading wine commentator Peter Forrestal. Award judge Ken Gargett described Vue Grand’s beer list as “a sensational collection of beers and a worthy winner”. The review cites the beer list as a cleverly constructed collection of cracking, well-priced beers with an eye very much on the craft beer scene. “It is such an honour to be recognised by the

judges for what we do and to be considered among undoubtedly the best restaurants, hotels, pubs and bars in Australia,” Vue Grand food and beverage manager Caleb Fleet said. He said Vue Grand decided about five years ago to showcase some of the Bellarine Peninsula’s beers on its wine list. “We pride ourselves on using the best local produce on the menu and showcasing the wonderful wines of the region, so it made sense to show off these great beers. “We essentially buy the beers we like and are excited by and ultimately that we want to drink. The staff are passionate and excited about the beers, too.” The Vue Grand also received a one glass rating for its wine list, one of only three listings in the greater Geelong region. Each list in the awards is assessed by two judges and given a rating - three glasses (91-100 points), two glasses (80-90 points) and one glass (70-79 points). Lists scoring less than 70 points are not rated.

My wife would argue that too much adrenalin and not enough healing can lead to burn out. She is, of course, correct and I should take her advice more often. Anna is a yoga teacher and is particularly interested in healing and replenishing energy. She teaches students of all ages with varying degrees of health and mobility. From super fit dedicated yoga students to beginners, she encourages her clients to be quiet, concentrate on breathing and, with good nutrition, support the body to heal within. As she puts it “peace of body then peace of mind.” For a long time, Anna has suggested we offer a day retreat where she instructs and I provide the food. A great idea, but I neither have the time nor a venue. Enter her friend Sarah Roe who recently created a new food hub called Oyl near Drysdale. Formerly home to award-winning restaurant Loam, Oyl is situated on nearly 65 hectares of pristine Bellarine bushland. It is an ideal location for their first yoga retreat to be held on Saturday October 4 at 9am. Bookings and further details can be found at oyl.com.au/workshops. Sarah and I have similar thoughts on food. Her approach is to cook seasonally and let the ingredients shine. As Sarah says: “What you see is what you get – only with lots of flavour”. Her experience is vast having trained at Leith’s School of Food and Wine in London and run a local catering business for over a decade. Throw three kids in the mix and you can appreciate how busy Sarah has been. For the yoga retreat, Sarah plans to use produce from her kitchen garden and other local suppliers. I will not ruin the surprise, but among the dishes will be bountiful salads, fresh fruit and undoubtedly Lighthouse olive oil which is grown on site using environmentally sustainable methods. Lighthouse olive oils are available at Torquay Farm Foods.

Carrot, Orange and Ginger Salad INGREDIENTS 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger 1 tablespoon maple syrup 2 tablespoons Lighthouse Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2 tablespoons orange juice 3 carrots, grated 3 handfuls of picked watercress sprigs (or rocket) 40g shelled unsalted pistachios

METHOD Place ginger, maple syrup, olive oil and orange juice in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and combine. Add grated carrot and toss. Coat watercress with a little olive oil, place on serving platter, cover with dressed carrot and sprinkle with pistachios.

Earnest performances in classic comedy Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) is thrilled to present an exclusive season of The Importance of Being Earnest starring Nancye Hayes, part of the 2014 Deakin University Theatre Season. This brand new production, of one of the world’s wittiest plays, from the State Theatre Company of South Australia, opens at GPAC on August 28 after premiering in Adelaide to rave reviews. Oscar Wilde’s brilliant and much-loved comedy of love, manners and mistaken identity has been delighting audiences for more than 100 years. Set within the stifling conventions of Victorian England, two bachelors have taken to bending the rules and the truth to add a dash of excitement to their lives. Jack invents a brother, Ernest, as an excuse to leave his dull country life behind so that he may pursue Gwendolen, the delectable daughter of the formidable Lady Bracknell. Across town, Algernon decided to take the name Ernest, when visiting Jack’s young ward, Cecily. When each gentleman is forced to unwind his web of lies and reveal himself – being “earnest” takes on a whole new meaning. This staging of The Importance of Being Earnest will see grand dame of Australian theatre Nancye Hayes AM star as the formidable and acidic Lady Bracknell, alongside hilarious Adelaide actor Nathan O’Keefe in the role of Algernon. State Theatre Company artistic director Geordie

Brooman said: “To bring together an actor of Nancye’s stature with a bright, young star like Nathan in such an absurdly funny play was an irresistible opportunity”. “The production will be both sumptuous and anarchic, combining all of Wilde’s wit with Nathan’s brilliant physical comedy skills.” Tickets for The Importance of Being Earnest at GPAC range from $25 to $69. Book at GPAC Box Office on 5225 1200 or go online to gpac.org.au.

See a film to assist friends in need BY TIFFANY PILCHER SEEING a film this weekend could put a smile on your face, as well as hundreds of people in need. The Women’s Friendship Group (WFG) is screening The Hundred-Foot Journey in Balwyn on Sunday to raise money to assist the 250 families in the remote Kenyan village of Kanthi. In the film, the Kadam family is displaced from their native India and settles in a quaint village in the south of France to open an Indian restaurant. It is perfect, until Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), the chilly chef proprietress of a Michelin-starred, classical French restaurant gets wind of it. Her icy protests escalate to an all out war between the two establishments, until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures. The WFG has raised almost $40,000 for the Kanthi project, which will connect water to the droughtstricken village, allowing residents to grow their own food and girls to attend school rather than walk the 16-kilometre journey to source water for their households.

Melbourne Writers Festival travels to the coast BY TIFFANY PILCHER

VICTORIA’S largest writer’s festival is hitting the road this year with several travel writing workshops to be held in Aireys Inlet and Fairhaven next weekend. Melbourne Writers Festival (MWF) celebrates the talent and ideas of writers from Australia and around the world. On Friday August 22, Robyn Davidson (Tracks)

and Tim Cope (On the Trail of Genghis Khan) will open the coastal celebrations with a discussion and dinner at the Aireys Inlet Community Centre. Tracks is one of Australia’s most celebrated and enduring travel books and Tim Cope travelled by horseback from Mongolia to Hungary, retracing the conquests of Genghis Khan. Ticket price includes dinner, BYO drinks and glasses. There will be three workshops on Saturday August 23, including freelance travel writer

Susan Gough Henly focusing on specific tips to hone travel writing and photography skills, as well as information on traditional and new publishing outlets. Julietta Jameson (Me, Myself and Lord Byron) and Ailsa Piper (Sinning Across Spain) will share the secrets of their pilgrimages and personal quests: long journeys that require planning and adaptability. A hands-on workshop with writers Laura Jean McKay (Holiday in Cambodia) and

Andrew Nette (Ghost Money) shows how places can be the inspiration for stories and novels. No prior writing experience is required to take part in the workshops. The opening event will be held at the Aireys Inlet Community Centre, all other workshops will be at the Fairhaven Surf Life Saving Club. For tickets and more details including the full program, please visit mwf.com.au.

Great minds unite for Word for Word festival BY TIFFANY PILCHER SOME of the country’s greatest thinkers will converge in Geelong when non-fiction festival Word for Word launches this weekend. A number of interstate speakers, writers, and poets will be in attendance along with special international guest, Molly Oldfield, who is an historian and one of the top researchers from Stephen Fry’s popular QI show.

Creative producer Maryanne Hyde of Deakin’s School of Communication and Creative Arts said the university developed the idea to celebrate their 40th anniversary. “It was created to both leave a lasting legacy for the community but to also celebrate writing, reading and ideas and connecting the community through conversation,” she said. “As well as meeting and hearing some exceptional people talk about a fascinating range of topics, it is also

a chance for readers and writers to come together to discuss topics and issues that matter to them.” Word for Word Non-Fiction Festival will be held from August 15-17 at the Deakin University Waterfront Campus. For more information including the full program and tickets, visit wordforwordfestival.com.au. Geelong is also hosting Victoria’s largest book fair this weekend at Geelong West Town Hall, on August

15, 16 and 17, thanks to the Geelong West Rotary Club. Dubbed the “40,000 reasons for change” book fair because of its aim to raise $40,000 for Geelong, national and international Rotary causes, the event has grown over nine years into a major attraction. The fair will be open on Friday from 10am-5pm, Saturday from 9am-5pm, and Sunday from 10am-2pm. For more information, visit geelongwestrotary.org.au.

Word for Word Non-Fiction Festival creative producer Maryanne Hyde said the inaugural Geelong event will stack up with a long list of Australia’s best writers and speakers joining the festivities.

Livingstone Daisies pop up in Barwon Heads THE Livingstone Daisies’ Michael Barclay, Liz Stringer, and Van and Cal Walker came together through absolute serendipity. A fortuitous mistake, a happy accident, call it what you will. The musical friends, siblings and partners, bonded by their mutual love of Teenage Fanclub and harmony driven power pop, felt like getting away for a weekend beachside retreat, armed with a book full of Van Walker’s pop tunes, to record some new music. Those two recording sessions resulted in a brand new band and two full-length albums before they’d played their first live show. The second of those beach shack sessions, Don’t Know What Happiness Is quickly garnered widespread critical acclaim as the band began playing shows and festivals to packed audiences around the country. The first recording session has remained unreleased until now and with the help of a wildly successful crowd funding campaign, the Daisies are ready to launch their sophomore album, Waiting on the Last Minute. Livingstone Daisies will launch Waiting on the Last Minute at the Barwon Heads Bowling Club on Saturday August 16 with special guest Allison Ferrier. Doors open at 7pm, and the Roamin’ Wood Fired Pizza Van will be on site. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by emailing talkingbarwonheads@bigpond.com or by phoning 0416 119 240.

Pop quartet Livingstone Daises are releasing their sophomore album at the Barwon Heads Bowling Club on Saturday Night.

THINK you’ve got baggage? Meet Susan – she’s 40, scatty, chatty and up for adventure! Susan’s friends look forward to their next facelift, the arrival of grandchildren, and a whole world of gossip about the neighbours, but Susan dreams of escape. To hell with middle age. She’s off to relive her youth. Eccentric, clumsy and unwaveringly optimistic, for Susan the only way forward is back. She wants to feel alive again, to be on the edge – and preferably, sat at the bar. She packs her bag and heads to Sydney to retrace the steps of a holiday she took with friends years ago. Determined to have as much fun as she did in her 20s, Susan’s adventures lead her back to old ground… but is it like old times? With a cocktail in hand and an eye on the barman, she sips, slurps and tumbles her way through a hilarious journey of rediscovery. This heartwarming and achingly funny one-woman show will have you reaching for your boarding pass and wondering, where shall we go next? Just The Ticket is written by West End and Broadway playwright Peter Quilter (End of the Rainbow, Duets), whose work has been translated into 27 languages and performed in over 40 countries. This brand new production by HIT is the play’s premiere outside Sydney. It will be staged on Wednesday and Thursday August 21 and 22 at the Potato Shed in Drysdale. Tickets are available from the Potato Shed – call 5251 1998 – or at any City of Greater Geelong Customer Service Centre and cost $36, $32, groups of 10-plus $28.

Don’t make major mountains out of minor molehills, and waste precious time worrying about inconsequential problems this week. Things should run reasonably smoothly and, if there are complications, then clear communication will help you sail through any temporary turbulence. Friday’s Mercury/Pluto trine is terrific for rigorous study and research… Virgo heaven!

16. What is the meaning of the medical term ‘nil per os’? 17. What is the Roman equivalent of the Ancient Greek god Poseidon? 18. Mohamed Morsi is the President of which African country? 19. Who was the first cover girl on the magazine Playboy? 20. What was the name of the boat in which the Pilgrim Fathers set sail for the New World in 1620?

AUGUST 14 – 21 2014 © Joanne Madeline Moore 2014

Group activities are favored early in the week, and you can expect an easy flow of feelings between you and loved ones. Single Librans – crank up your computer because love is waiting online. Have you been pulling your weight around the house? With Pluto in your home zone, the more you resist domestic responsibilities, the more problems you’ll have with housemates.

The more proactive you are professionally, the more successful you’ll be. Looking for work? Think outside the square and find creative ways to present yourself. Thursday’s stars increase your frustration levels and your control-freak tendencies. Friday is the best day to have a deep and meaningful conversation with someone special, as confidences are shared and secrets spilled.

Hold onto your seat Sagittarius! The week begins well, as the Venus/Jupiter hook-up highlights social shenanigans and romantic hijinks. Travel and education are also favoured as you start a study course; extend your international connections; or plan a heavenly holiday. Don’t rush business and financial matters on Friday. The stars encourage you to be focused and thorough.

The big lesson to learn this week is how to delegate. No one not even a capable, conscientious Capricorn is indispensable! And others are happy to step in and help… if you give them the chance. Friday’s marvelous Mercury/Pluto trine sees you focus on the big picture, without obsessing too much. It’s also time to get up-close-and personal with a good friend from faraway shores.

Attached Aquarians – the stars encourage you to make a bold romantic gesture that knocks your partner off their feet. Are you unhappily single? Love is in the air this week, as Venus and Jupiter join forces in your relationship zone. So prepare to capitalise on a big romantic opportunity with a lusty Libran, a sexy Sagittarian – or someone from another country or culture.

Are you a Piscean procrastinator? Or are you living in a Fish fantasy world? This week’s Mercury/Neptune opposition heightens creativity and spirituality, but it also blunts your reality radar and makes you more susceptible to self-delusion. On Thursday and Friday, Mercury encourages you to tackle personal problems pronto as you get talking with your nearest and dearest.

If you spread misleading information on Tuesday, you could find yourself in trouble with a worried work colleague or a furious family member. Whereas Friday should be fabulous when the Mercury/Pluto trine focuses your quicksilver mind and deepens your concentration. Your powers of persuasion are also high, as you combine business acumen with your natural gift of the gab.

15.

A

Venus and Jupiter boost your Cat charisma, so stop trying to impress everyone and just have the confidence to be yourself… warts and all. Be inspired by birthday great Coco Chanel “How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone”. When it comes to contracts and financial deals, do all the research thoroughly before you sign on the dotted line.

14.

E

Are you having money hassles? Some lucky Bulls will be thrown a financial life-line by a generous family member. Others will have to think of creative ways to increase cash flow and boost dwindling funds. And are you being super stubborn about an ongoing domestic matter? This week’s stars encourage you to solve the problem in a cool, calm and cooperative way.

13.

B

This week is complicated Crabs! Friendships and finances are highlighted but steer clear of power plays and mind games. Are you in a career rut? Is a change of approach needed at work? If you shift the stale old energy and get fresh ideas moving, it will lead to an exciting new professional chapter. On the weekend, persuade others to work with you rather than against you.

12.

N

This week impulsive Mars and Uranus boost your devil-may-care attitude, but too much hot-headed hastiness could lead to an argument or accident. Rams are always butting in with advice but don’t offer help unless you are asked. If you try to convert others to your point of view, you’ll meet with resistance from all directions. Try fixing problems, rather than creating them.

11.

Buying a laptop: part 1 TALKING COMPUTERS WITH BRAD MCDERMOTT FROM TORQUAY COMPUTERS

p. 5261 2888 m. 0439 070 571 torquaycomputers.com.au

AS COMPUTERS have become smaller, faster and cheaper, a laptop is now a common choice when it comes to a home computer. I personally like a desktop system with a big screen and plenty of storage, but it’s not ideal when you have to sit in another area of the house to use it or need the portability that a laptop fulfils. When choosing a laptop there are multiple things to consider - cost, weight, size and battery life, just to name a few. Let’s break it down: Cost: Is this going to be a laptop that the family uses and will get thrown around the house, or a business laptop to do the books and business tasks? If it is a family laptop, I would buy something as cheap as possible as it will not survive the wear and tear of being passed around well, especially with

kids. If business-based, then you could spend a little more but there’s no need to spend a fortune, as most modern laptops will not struggle with business-based software. Weight: If you are travelling or have a mobilebased business, then smaller and lighter is better. The trade-off is longevity as the lighter and smaller laptops are generally flimsier and less robust. Size: Specifically, screen size. The standard size laptop screen is 15.6 inches. Smaller laptops with smaller screens look good - until you have to start using them. Trying to read these smaller screens for any length of time can be very hard on your eyes. This can be overcome with plugging in an external monitor, keyboard and mouse. This option can give you the best of both worlds at a reasonable cost. If you have any questions that you would like answered in this column, please email me at info@torquaycomputers.com.au.

BFL Round 18 preview BY PADDY SLACK Barwon Heads (6th) vs. Drysdale (5th) @ Howard Harmer Oval, Saturday 2.10pm The finals start now for these two teams in what is one of the most anticipated matches of the season. The triumphant side will finish in fifth spot, while it’ll be season-over for the loser. In round 8, Drysdale got the better of the Seagulls by seven points. Daniel Hovey and Nick Hill kicked four apiece for the Seagulls and must find the goals again on Saturday if they’re are a chance to win. Barwon Heads is the only top-five side that the Hawks have been able to beat since round 1. Barwon Heads has won six of its past seven games at home, while Drysdale has won five of its eight away games this season. The Hawks played five players that are eligible to play in Colts last week. Expect the young side to put their bodies on the line in what is expected to be one of the most heated battles of the season. Player to watch: Brandon Backwell; returns from an overseas trip in time for the crunch match, he will be fresh and ready to crack in for Barwon Heads. Prediction: Barwon Heads by 13 points.

Queenscliff (4th) vs. Torquay (2nd) @ Queenscliff Recreation Reserve, Saturday 2.10pm Queenscliff comes fresh off a 226-point victory, while Torquay has had a day less to recover after rolling Geelong Amateur by 45 points on Sunday. A sixth consecutive finals appearance for Queenscliff is locked in, although Torquay has gone one better and cemented the doublechance. In round 7, the Tigers prevailed by 27 points after a 7.3 to 0.2 first quarter gave the Coutas no chance of coming back. Daniel DeGois kicked six majors for Queenscliff that round. He is sitting on 92 goals for the season and will need to bag eight goals to top the ton in front of his home crowd. Queenscliff lost its first four home games this season but an improved second half of the year has seen them win their last four by over 50 points. The home-ground advantage will not faze Torquay, who have remarkably won all its away games this year. Player to watch: James Darke; the 2013

Rookie of the Year loves playing against the Coutas. Last time he travelled to Queenscliff Recreation Reserve he dominated in a beston-ground performance, he was also one of the Tigers best in the round 7 battle earlier this year. Prediction: Torquay by 22 points.

Saturday 2.10pm Geelong Amateur will presumably use this game to rest players and rejuvenate the team after coming off two consecutive losses. Newcomb’s season comes to an end this weekend and will finish wooden spooners for the fourth time in the past six years. Ammos will enjoy the week off after round 18 before taking on the winner of the qualifying final, which is likely to be between Torquay and Ocean Grove. Ammos showed no mercy earlier in the season when they thumped the Power, 40.21 (261) to 5.2 (32) at Grinter Reserve. Veteran Rowan McSparron starred with 14 goals in the round 7 encounter and is yet to have a goalless game since then. Player to watch: Tom Balding; the goal sneak enjoyed a 10-goal haul last time he faced Newcomb and showed that he had no trouble finding the goals in this years interleague match. Prediction: Geelong Amateur by 150 points.

Anglesea (8th) vs. Portarlington (9th) @ Alcoa Oval, Saturday 2.10pm Anglesea will look to come away with the four points for just the third time in front of its home crowd this year. The Roos ran out 45-point winners last time they faced the Demons in round 8. Interleague representative Dyson Bell-Warren was imposing for the Roos that day but won’t be seen at Alcoa Oval on Saturday. Coach Lucas Murphy also impressed and snagged two goals in the victory. Expect a fierce encounter in both side’s last match of the year. Player to watch: Josh Bouwman; booted a season-high five goals against the Demons in round 8, he comes off four goals last week and is the Roos leading goalkicker on 35 for the season. Prediction: Anglesea by 39 points.

Modewarre (7th) vs. Ocean Grove (3rd) @ Community Bank Oval, Saturday 2.10pm A win today for Ocean Grove will consolidate a spot in the qualifying final against Torquay, but more importantly the double-chance. The Grubbers came from 16 points down at threequarter time to defeat Modewarre by 32 points in round 5. Modewarre’s biggest problem has been unable to play a full four quarters of football this season. If able to pull off an upset this weekend and defeat Ocean Grove then the Grubbers can potentially drop to fourth position and find themselves playing in an elimination final. Player to watch: Max Rooke; the Geelong premiership star kicked three majors and was named the Grubbers best player when the sides met in round 5. Since then he has not had a goalless game. Prediction: Ocean Grove by 44 points.

Players from Geelong Amateur and Torquay battle for the loose ball at the weekend.

Ammos topple Tigers BY CARLY POST GEELONG Amateur cemented their position as undefeated ladder leaders with an easy 14-goal victory over reigning premiers Torquay in the A Grade netball at the weekend. The Ammos got off to a shaky start, throwing several balls away under the Tigers’ defensive pressure, but they sound found their rhythm and pushed the margin out each quarter. The Ammos goaling duo of Jenni Gardner and Mickayla Ward were outstanding, with captain Ashlea Salter rounding out the votes for the day. The Ammos will be looking to finish the season without a loss as they take on bottom of the ladder Newcomb next week. The Power put up one of their best performances of the year, notching a very respectable 33 goals but were still no match for the Coutas. Queenscliff captain Lauren Dick was impressive, supported by Tess Upstill. The Coutas will round out their season against Torquay next week. Ocean Grove got a few Anglesea pulses racing, sticking it to the top four team until the very end before losing by a goal. Tall Grubbers goaler Alexandra Lee gave the Roos defenders all sorts of grief while Ocean Grove young defender Kelsey Ollis put in another best-on court performance. Anglesea will face off with Portarlington next week to finalise third and fourth spots. Ocean Grove is now out of finals contention. Portarlington cruised to an easy 57-21 win over Drysdale. Candice Bull was on fire again, downing 33 goals, while mid-courter Perri Jones got the three votes. Hawks youngster Gina MacLeod moved into the ring in the absence of some key players and top-scored for her team. Barwon Heads caused the upset of the round, dashing Modewarre’s hopes of a finals berth with a 41-37 win. The win is a huge confidence booster for the Seagulls who won’t make finals but will be very happy with the exciting win. Barwon Heads goalers Olivia Young and Sonia Howard were dominant, with Howard named best on court.

SHELLFISH reefs in Port Phillip Bay will be rejuvenated under a partnership between the state government and one of the world’s largest conservation groups. Minister for Agriculture and Food Security, Peter Walsh, announced last week the government and the Nature Conservancy would work together on Australia’s first shellfish reef restoration project as part of a threeyear, $270,000 partnership. “Shellfish beds are recognised as important ecological features of Port Phillip Bay as they can provide key fish habitat valued by both commercial and recreational fishers,” Mr Walsh said. “The pilot project will use native flat oysters raised at the Department of Environment and Primary Industries’ Queenscliff hatchery to re-establish shellfish presence on reefs in the Bay, and is expected to significantly improve fish habitat and recreational fishing opportunities. “While this is the first Australian reef restoration effort, the project will test a range of reef restoration methods based on successful overseas experiences.” Mr Walsh said the first reefs to be restored would be at Geelong, Hobsons Bay and Chelsea. The Nature Conservancy will contribute $150,000 while the government will provide $120,000 from the $16 million Recreational Fishing Initiative. “By improving angling opportunities across the state through the Recreational Fishing Initiative, we are helping local communities thrive and building a better Victoria.” The Nature Conservancy’s director

of conservation, Dr James Fitzsimons, said restoring the bay’s shellfish reefs was an exciting project for the organisation to be involved in. “Around the world, considerable progress is being made to restore estuarine reefs that increase biodiversity, improve fishery productivity and filter the water.” Mr Walsh said the project was

Chiara Centorbi captains Victorian team

Chiara Centorbi in action at the National Soccer Championships

Surf Coast FCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chiara Centorbi recently captained the Victorian Under 13s country team at the 2014 National Soccer Championships in Coffs Harbour in July. Centorbi is the first player in the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history to captain a state team. After attending trials earlier in the year, Centorbi was selected in the top 20 for the State Development Program, training every Saturday at Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s State Soccer Centre in the lead up to the National Championships. She was then selected in the final team of 16 girls to represent Victoria Country at the Nationals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was so grateful to be selected and have the opportunity to represent my state,â&#x20AC;? Centorbi said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We then played a great second game against Capital Football (ACT) the following day; however, unfortunately I sprained my ankle which forced me out for the next two games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By Friday, and our final game of the tournament, my ankle was mended and I was cleared by the physio to play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all braided our hair and wore blue zinc. The game was a blast despite losing to the Northern Territory, but it was a great way to end the week.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will never forget this amazing experience and the amazing people I have met in this once in a life time opportunity.â&#x20AC;?

During the team presentation at Melbourne Airport on the way to Coffs Harbour, Centorbi was handed her playing strip (number 6) and also announced as the Victorian Under 13 country team captain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was really happy to be presented with number 6 as I have worn this number in previous years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I was shocked when I was announced as captain as there were so many talented players in the team â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it! â&#x20AC;&#x153;As captain, I lead Victoria out during our first game against New South Wales Country and was very proud to do so. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We drew 1-1 and were thrilled with the result.

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB MOST golfers stayed at home this week, with only the social brigade heading north to the border for some warm weather. Photos were posted on social media and weather envy prevents me reporting further. The more acceptable photos for all to see are those from the recent Presidents and Captains Dinner. They are on the Club Members page along with the menu. Sumptuous indeed, and another cause for envy.

WITH MARGOT SMITH

TORQUAY GOLF CLUB

FROM THE GOLF SHOP

Our men seemed to have finally run out of luck with their Wednesdays. Most of them suffered in the afternoon rain this week. The scores were quite acceptable though. Russell Murfitt had the best score with 5 up winning A Grade. Stuart Morgan won B Grade with 4 up, Peter Atherden won B Grade with square on a count back from Ian Treloar, and Bernie Dalton won the seniors with 3 down. NTP winners were Keith Turner, Bernie Dilger, David Calvert and Daryl Britnell Thursday morning was cold and wet yet again, but that didn’t stop most of the ladies competing for the monthly medal. Scores were subdued, and it was Lady Captain Stefi Bates turn for the medal with a very respectable nett 75. Stefi won Division 3, and other winners were: Margot Parton in Division 1 with nett 77, and Sue Britnell in Division 2 with nett 78. The July medal was

Saturday was the Anglesea Surf Club fundraising day, and they managed to get everything going their way. The field was full with 146 players – two groups on every hole and this was a record field. They also had the best of the week’s weather, with no need for umbrellas and the wet weather gear, and they raised over $17,000 for the club. Surf Club winners for the day was Barry Marsh and Geoffrey Elliot with 7 up. Regular golfers took out the other categories, but mention must be made of Sue Bowler who made a clean sweep of the NTPs. Sunday required umbrellas, wet weather gear and thermals. We did have a good size field for the day, with most well prepared. The winners were, Ann Stokes in the ladies with 33 points, Anthony Ivelja in A Grade with 38 points, Geoffrey Howlett in B Grade with 42 points and Phil Francis in C Grade with 37 points. NTP winners were Miller Gelic, Wayne Pipe, Colin Foster and Anthony Ivelja. Enjoy your golf and stay warm.

THE Torquay Golf Club will soon be hosting our annual golf week. It will be the 1st week of October so start clearing your calendar or simply book your week off work. Start thinking of who your partners will be for the mixed events and which single events you might like to play in. Remember to get them in early as we are sure this year it will bring the biggest fields we have had for years. With the Resort in full swing and the course now completed, golfers from all over Victoria will be eager to come and enjoy what surprises we have in store for the week’s program. Entry forms should be available on our Torquay Golf Club website shortly. Tuesday, Teneile Louchery scored a solid 75 to have the winning score for A Grade. Gale Rooney had an impressive 69 to clinch the Medal by six shots and also pick up the B Grade win to finish off what was a great day on the course. NTPs: Joye Burton, Gail Richards, Sandy Harrison, Joan Thomson and Joan Sparkes. Congratulations to Judith Hobill on taking out this week’s Resort competition with 35 points and also hitting the 13th green to win the jackpot. Wednesday Craig Middlemiss had 38 points to win for A Grade. Stuart Robinson, out early, shot 40 points to come in first for B Grade and with 42 points. Ken Isaac found some good form to win for C Grade. Well done to Kevin McDonald who, now in his 87th year, can still show us younger

golfers a thing or two, like shooting 42 points to take out the Resort win. NTPs: Bob Hayles, Andy Clark, Ron Fish, John Bishop and Cec Browning. Geoff Davie played a great shot on the 17th to win the jackpot. Friday, Don Miloshis put together a solid round of 42 points to take out the A Grade win. B Grade winner John Potter scored 39 points.

The small yet elite field managed to make the most of the conditions with Josephine McMahon winning on count back with a score of +1, closely followed by Linda Turner.

MEDLEY

Thursday Stableford Medal: Not a big field for medal as the weather put off a few of the ladies. The day didn’t turn out too badly with light rain falling for most the Ladies round but real no wind to speak of. It was Marge Hales who continued on her hot form playing to her handicap running away from the field with a nine point win and

Tuesday Par: Tough conditions out there for the medley, played on the front 9. It was a grind for players that competed as no one was able to better their handicap. It was Judi Bullock who battled it out the best on a count back from rocket Rod Carroll both on -2. Sunday Stableford: Rain greeted the first group out the Stableford competition. The wind was strong at times especially on the top holes on the back nine. The rain and wind was coming and going for the am and pm players. It was Leigh Cleland who was out at first light and got through the early morning rain that faired best posting a great round of 36 points, from Simon Haebich with a solid 33 points.

LADIES

PORTARLINGTON GOLF CLUB WHAT a mystical game this golf is! Why is it that one day we can get on the tee and have no idea where the ball might go, spend more time in the trees than the fairways and experience an ongoing nightmare on the greens, while on other days our confidence is sky high, and even the trees send our occasional stray one back onto the fairways!

31 putts! B Grade went to Megan Siotos with a nett 75 from Captain Chris Cunningham on 77, and Judy Patton snuck home in C Grade with 79 (and the B ProPin on the way) to win on a count back from Helen Newitt.
