Road users asked to exercise extra care through the holidays in a bid to stop tragic loss of lives on our roads

BY NATHAN HALE LOCAL authorities along the Surf Coast have implored road users to exercise extra caution this holiday season. In the wake of two tragic accidents which have seen cyclist killed in the past month, police are begging motorists to slow down as the shire prepares for its annual influx of visitors. The Surf Coast population of approximately 27,000 is expected to triple over the next four weeks – spelling busy roads not only on the highways, but also in and around towns. “In light of the recent tragedies involving cyclists,

Surf Forecast

we ask people to take extra care, particularly over this summer period when there are a lot more vehicles and bicycles on the road,� said Brian McKiterick, officer in charge of Torquay Police. “Traffic will dramatically increase over the coming weeks, especially on holiday weekends, and we just ask that all road users be aware. “It is just a matter of people concentrating when they are out on the road and taking extra care.� The warnings come after two incidents involving collisions between vehicles and bicycles have left two men dead. Former school teacher Ron Thompson was killed on Anglesea Road when he collided with a truck,

while Geelong identity Rex Sizeland died after colliding with a car on Breamlea Road last week. Liberal candidate for Corangamite, Sarah Henderson, called for all road users to “respect the roadsâ€?. “This is a very important time to take extra care with many people often travelling long distances to see family and friends. A life can be lost in a moment ‌ so slow down and drive with caution. Respecting each and every road user is critical,â€? she said. Owner of Torquay Cycling Factory, Lorenzo Moro, said the region is packed with cyclists and that both sets of road users needed to show courtesy. Moro said there needs to be more of a relationship

between road users, rather than an ‘us against them’ mentality. “It goes for both sides (cyclists and vehicles),â€? he said. “People who use the road need to be courteous to one another – just as they would if they walked past each other in the street. “Everyone just needs to show a bit more respect to each other‌ remember, a cyclist is somebody’s mother, father, brother, sister or son or daughter. Moro said key tips to ensure good cycling manners included: being courteous to drivers; not making erratic movements and keeping to the left of the road; always signaling at intersections and looking at the face of a driver to make sure they have seen you.

AS THE New Year approaches, we take stock and contemplate the year to come. 2010 promises to be another busy year for council with a number of significant projects taking place. Many of these projects will require community input, and I hope that you will take the opportunity to be involved.

Torquay-Jan Juc 2040 Last month at the High Tide Festival we launched the innovative Torquay-Jan Juc 2040 project, which promises to be one of the most important exercises in future planning the Surf Coast Shire will undertake – both for our community and as a template for future best practice in planning for coastal areas experiencing high-growth pressures. Torquay-Jan Juc 2040 aims to take a more community-focused approach to land use planning and to link land use planning with the community’s aspirations for its future. The project will develop a growth management plan for Torquay and Jan Juc that looks at community aspirations, preserving the strengths of the region, defining what level, scale and direction of growthis responsive to Torquay Jan Juc’s setting, defines a local sense of place and looks at regional factors that affect the way our community will function. As a result of the project, future urban growth boundaries for Torquay and Jan Juc will be more clearly defined. The Victorian Government is partnering council in running the project, with a view to exploring new ways to manage growth pressure in coastal areas. Consultation will be stepping up in March, so I encourage you to get thinking about the issues that relate to how our region will develop over the next 30 years.

For more information including questions we should be considering as part of the process, I encourage you to visit http://www.surfcoast.vic. gov.au/2040.htm

Climate change and fire preparation Addressing the effects of climate change is a major challenge on the Surf Coast. Climate change is likely to pose a number of challenges and demands on us to live in a more sustainable manner.

An engaged community One of this council’s major aims since its election in 2008 has been to improve the way we engage with our communities. Improving community understanding of upcoming projects and council’s work in the community is an important priority. Projects are important but how we engage and work with all residents, permanent and nonpermanent, is crucial. This year we will be continuing with council conversations; a programme which has run successfully this year taking council to a number of communities and schools in the shire and we will continue running council meetings around the municipality. A healthy community is an engaged and interested community. This is the basis on which council will continue to work to refine how we inform and engage.

Infrastructure for Winchelsea Winchelsea is nominated as a growth node in Surf Coast Shire and council will be working to progress a number of projects in the area. A major priority is lobbying for natural gas to be piped to Winchelsea; which will provide a major boost for potential industrial and service development as well as improved quality of life for residents.

Bells Beach masterplan Council is continuing to work with the Bells Beach Advisory Committee on addressing major issues that are affecting the Bells Beach surfing reserve including the impacts of visitation and drainage into coastal areas. Finalising a draft Bells Beach Masterplan for public exhibition that protects the many environmental, social and cultural values of the reserve is a major priority for council; given the significance of the area to local residents, visitors and the reserve’s environmental importance.

Community and civic precinct The community and civic precinct in north Torquay will provide much-needed recreational and community facilities that will ensure we can meet our shire’s needs now and into the future. Sporting facilities for AFL, football and netball are being designed, with flexibility incorporated for other sports or community activities. Following consultation with sporting groups, council will also work to ensure the sporting pavilion at the precinct can be expanded in future to comprise two storeys. The precinct project is set for completion in March 2011 and for more information, please visit http://www.surfcoast.vic.gov.au/ccp.htm Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any issues or concerns. Kind Regards

Celebrate to be safe REVELLERS along the Surf Coast are being urged to see in the New Year in a responsible manner. Surf Coast Shire has worked closely with local police to ensure Thursday night’s celebrations go off without incident. Following on from the success of the Good Times, Great Breaks, Respect the Place and Your Mates initiative, which saw the annual Schoolies influx one of the best behaved ever, the shire and police are hoping for a repeat this week. Additional measures are being taken throughout the municipality to ensure a safe environment for revellers and visitors on New Year’s Eve – and throughout the summer holiday period. A strong focus is being placed on enforcing the award-winning No Butts, No Cuts regulations on Surf Coast beaches, which prohibit all glass and smoking in beach areas. Temporary lighting for events such as New Year’s Eve will also be increased. Authorised officers will be cracking down on glass on the foreshore and beach areas, sleeping in cars and drinking in public places with penalty notices to be issued for anti-social behaviour. Shire mayor, Libby Coker, said council has worked closely with

3

Victoria Police in better promoting messages of safe celebration and consideration for everyone involved in summer festivities. “There have been a number of successful initiatives, including the placement of our So You Know posters in a number of shops and licensed venues, that provide information on penalties for anti-social behaviour, as well as direct communication with visitors and the presence of officers on the ground,â€? she said. “We really want to ensure the Surf Coast is associated with safe, responsible and considerate celebration. The message is clear – have a good time and consider others – but if you don’t, you might end up with a lighter wallet. “We all wish everyone on the Surf Coast a happy and safe new year with great memories to bring in 2010.â€? New Year’s Eve entertainment will include: • In Lorne, Plumb Crazy playing top-40 and classic covers on the foreshore with fireworks to bring in the New Year • In Anglesea, Trade ‘n’ Places playing top-40 and classic rock from 9pm until 12.10am In Torquay, Blue Stew playing top-40 songs and classic covers at Torquay Common (via Surf Beach Drive), with fireworks to bring in the new year.

Work on safe places continues WORK on ensuring designated Safe Places remain just that in a bushfire emergency are continuing throughout the Surf Coast. Following the announcement last week of the shire’s Neighbourhood Safer Places – Places of Last Resort (NSPs), council continues to prepare the areas with maintenance and vegetation management continuing. Last week the shire designated the Anglesea Riverbank, Anglesea Shopping Centre car park and the bottom shops and skate park at Aireys Inlet as NSPs. Four further areas have been identified, but are subject to approval from the relevant landowners and managers. They are: Point Grey in Lorne; the Lorne foreshore; Bob Pettitt Reserve

in Jan Juc and Martians CafĂŠ car park in Deans Marsh. To ensure these sites meet the CFA criteria for NSPs, ongoing maintenance work needs to be undertaken, including vegetation management and removal. Surf Coast Shire mayor, Libby Coker, said it was vital the designated NSPs were in order in case they were needed. “No one can guarantee anyone’s safety at a NSP during a bushfire, but it is important that the right preparation work is done so we can make our NSPs as safe as possible,â€? Coker said. “This will require ongoing maintenance. People may have noticed work now being done, particularly on vegetation near designated NSPs.â€?

Christmas time on the coast always brings a varied influx of tourists and holiday-makers to the region – and this snowman was no exception. He was a surprise visitor to White’s Beach on Christmas Day, and although he may have looked out of place, he had a big smile on his face.

Road open in time for holiday season ROAD widening works on Mount Duneed Road have been completed and the road reopened to traffic – as scheduled – last week. The works, from Anglesea Road to the Surf Coast Highway, had closed the road for the past six weeks. The widening has been welcomed, as traffic on the road has increased dramatically since the opening of the Geelong Ring Road. Member for South Barwon, Michael Crutchfield, said the works – carried out by the City of Greater Geelong – will greatly improve safety and help cope

with the increased traffic. “The widening of Mount Duneed Road will allow it to become another safe alternative route to Torquay this summer,� Crutchfield said. “It will now cater for the expected increase in traffic volume through the Anglesea Road-Mount Duneed Road-Surf Coast Highway route linking the southern end of the Geelong Ring Road in Waurn Ponds to Torquay and the Bellarine Peninsula.� The $3million project was funded by the state

government under the Local Roads Programme, and was the result of a joint bid submitted by the City of Greater Geelong and Surf Coast Shire. “All road users will benefit from greater safety protection, including sealed shoulders for slowing and stopped vehicles, wider traffic lanes, upgraded line marking and intersections, and guide posts to provide improved safety,� Crutchfield said. “In addition to these works, VicRoads will construct a dual lane roundabout and improve

Museum gains certificate

TORQUAY’S Surf World Museum has underlined its commitment to environmental care by achieving waste wise certification. The iconic museum was awarded the certification from the Barwon Regional Waste Management Group (BRWMG) for its efforts to reduce and recycle wasted resources at a special ceremony last week. Surf World joins Surf Coast Shire’s municipal office and Torquay Civil and Parks Maintenance Depot, which had their waste wise certifications renewed. Key results for Surf World included a 16.67 per cent decrease in paper purchased and an 83 per cent increase in recycling of brochures, office paper and newspaper. Staff at the Torquay shire offices earned renewal of the site’s certification, with achievements including a reduction in annual waste to landfill by 4.25 per cent through a combination of activities. Waste wise is a programme for businesses, community groups and organisations that helps reduce waste and save money. For more information, visit www. resourcesmart.vic.gov.au

lighting at the Mount Duneed Road and Anglesea Road intersection as part of a $6.2million upgrade.� Drivers and riders will use a single lane temporary roundabout over the Christmas and New Year period. Works on the roundabout are expected to be complete in April 2010. Mount Duneed Road forms the municipal boundary of the City of Greater Geelong and Surf Coast Shire – which is why both municipalities have supported the upgrade.

Trial bus service begins A NEW bus loop connecting Moriac, Bellbrae, Torquay and Waurn Ponds has started its summer trial. The bus route also includes a connection from Winchelsea, which will allow residents of the town to meet the bus in Moriac and travel to Torquay. The service runs on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays until Sunday, April 11; making three return journeys from Moriac to Waurn Ponds daily and two return journeys from Moriac to Torquay. The Winchelsea connection will run on Saturdays and Tuesdays only from next Tuesday (January 5) until Australia Day. The trial will not run on New Year’s Day or Easter Saturday. Copies of the Moriac Bus Loop timetables are available from the shire’s offices in Grossmans Road, Torquay, the Torquay Visitor Information Centre, Moriac General Store, the Winchelsea Visitor Centre, Winchelsea Post Office and Winchelsea Milk Bar on Main Street. Timetables will also be available on board the bus or from Surf Coast Shire’s website, visit www.surfcoast.vic. gov.au

Get in quick for a sneak peek

QUIKSILVER’S flagship store in Torquay has just undergone some exciting new design changes. Over the past few months Quiksilver’s chain of retail stores have been undergoing some changes – in keeping with the dynamic, ever-changing nature of fashion and as a way of moving away from ‘mass main-stream’ and the homogenised approach common to so many brands. Focusing on interior refurbishments for Quiksilver store Torquay, the design ethos is to be rooted in creative representations that focus on Quiksilver’s brand individuality. Murals, interchangeable panels, themed imagery, modern takes on historical references and the extensive use of hand-crafted, raw materials will all be what makes up these new changes. “The intention is for customers to feel like they are visiting

an exhibit, rather than just another store,� said Quiksilver’s Australian-based Creative Director, Simon Buttonshaw. “In nearly all cases, designs will be hand-done, more personal and adaptable to change and less ‘mass-mainstream’. “You’ll see a giant handpainted mural of the Winki Pop line up, the right hander adjacent to the iconic Bells beach. “The approach is less about heavily-produced shop fittings and more about being in, and interacting within an energy-filled space. Our customers are able to enjoy a space that is inviting and inspiring. “These stores really make our best product look the best it possibly can.� Add once inside, shoppers won’t be just impressed with the new design – there are plenty of summer bargain to be snapped up.

There are more than 400 new surfboards from shapers such as Mark Phipps, Brett Warner, Simon Anderson, Greg Brown and Al Merrick, and the store caters for surfers’ needs that includes long boards, high performance shortboards, novice fun boards and retro twinnies just to name a few plus a serious range of hardware accessories.

Lions’ support for students THE ANGLESEA Lions Club’s commitment to community causes was again highlighted this month when it presented three bursaries to Year 6 students. Club president, David Morris, was on hand at Anglesea Primary School to present the bursaries – valued at $500 – to Teresa Walker and Marcus Caulfield.

Morris then visited LorneAireys Inlet P-12 College to present a bursary to Natasha von Nagy. The Lions Club used the criteria of citizenship, commendable work habits and interest in the community to select the recipients. In congratulating the students,

Morris emphasised primary schools provided the opportunity for all students to develop qualities of caring for others and their communities in a spirit of service that has its own rewards. Morris encouraged all to take advantage of every opportunity, but to never forget to contribute positively to their communities.

ON T H E BE AT Brought to you by Neighbourhood Watch Torquay/Jan Juc

Changes to Neighbourhood Watch NEIGHBOURHOOD Watch has now been operating in Victoria for 26 years, and 25 years in the GLG1 Bell Post Hill Area. There have been very few changes to the way NHW has operated throughout those years. Today, there are 23 full-time Neighbourhood Watch Police co-ordinators, working with small groups of volunteers throughout the state. The time has come to implement changes to bring Neighbourhood Watch into line with Police Service Area boundaries that will come into being on July 1, 2010, and to align Neighbourhood Watch with the way police deliver their services. By aligning to Police Service Areas and focusing on a broader range of crime prevention and community safety initiatives, Neighbourhood Watch will ensure it remains effective and helps Victoria Police work toward creating safer communities The most noticeable change that will take place is that Neighbourhood Watch will have a 100 per cent Victoria-wide coverage. Rather than the small areas in parts of our state, the programme will now encompass every home in Victoria. This is extremely positive for the Neighbourhood Watch programme and nobody should be concerned about what these changes mean to the local community. Police will still visit Neighbourhood Watch Area meetings when invited to be involved in, and support the development of crime prevention and community safety initiatives. High Tide Festival, Torquay Torquay Neighbourhood Watch volunteers conducted a display at the High Tide Festival at Torquay on earlier this month, where they offered free marking of property using their brand new Dremel engraver. Volunteers also distributed the ‘All Valuables

Removed from this Vehicle’ cards. At the same time, another group of NHW volunteers distributed the cards at the two local supermarket car parks. Torquay NHW recently secured a generous donation to enable them to print 5,000 of the ‘All Valuables’ cards. During the January tourist season, volunteers will distribute these cards at entrances to several local beach car parks. Displaying the card not only gives a message to would-be thieves who are looking for property to steal from parked cars, but also reminds the vehicle owner to put their belongings out of sight.

From Torquay Police, with Brian McKitterick Local police encourage all Surf Coast motorists and visitors to take care over the Christmas holiday period. If attending Christmas parties, plan ahead and book a taxi or find alternative travel arrangements if you think you may be having a few drinks. Police will be concentrating on drink driving and speeding offences over the summer period, as well as hoon behaviour. Be cyber smart these holidays Safety information from the Neighbourhood Watch monthly bulletin: Spend time online with your kids Check out good sites with your kids and compile a

favourites list, which you can visit regularly. Help your kids use the Internet as a research tool, learn about handy homework tips for kids and also good searching ideas. Teach children that internet information is not always reliable. Encourage your kids to treat others online in the same way as in real life. Chat safely Chatting on the net is very popular among young people and can be a way to meet and talk with people abroad and from different backgrounds. Most people online are friendly and polite, but some can be unfriendly and rude. A small number are exploitative and predatory and there have been instances of paedophiles contacting children in chat rooms and by email. Make sure your children know what information they can give out and where they can go on the net. Limit time in chat rooms, particularly for younger children. Encourage the use of chat rooms that are moderated (that is, where messages are screened by an adult before they are made public). Be involved Put the Internet computer in a public area of the home – areas like the living room are ideal. Talk to your children about their experiences online – both good and bad – and get to know which chat rooms they are visiting and who they are chatting with. If your child wants to meet someone they have met online you should check the person out to see that they are who they say they are. Talk to them and their parents by phone first. And you should accompany your child to the meeting. Teach your kids ways of dealing with disturbing material. Explain that they should not respond if someone says something inappropriate, and they should immediately leave any site if they feel

uncomfortable. Encourage them to tell you if anyone says something that makes them feel uncomfortable or scared. Filters Filter software is a useful tool for managing children’s access to the net, when used alongside active supervision by parents and setting household net-use rules. To help ensure your filter is as effective as possible, consider installing a product that is updated automatically when you connect to the net. Chat tips for kids Be careful; meeting people online might be fun, but remember that the people you meet online may not be who they say they are. A 40 year old could claim they are 12. Check with your parents/carer first; ask your mum or dad or carer before you give out your name, phone number or address or any other personal details. Never post personal information where lots of people can see it. Tell someone if you see upsetting language, pictures or something scary. More information is available from the following websites: www.acma.gov.au/spam and www. cybersmartkids.com.au Volunteers are needed We are looking for people to help organise and run Midnight Basketball, which will be held at Leisuretime Centre, Bell Post Hill. This programme targets young people ages 1218 years living in postcodes 3214 and 3215. It involves them in life skills workshops and basketball competition on Friday evenings, which are ‘high crime’ times when they might otherwise get caught up in anti-social behaviour.

Style and charm personified BY SARAH LAWRENCE FOR THE most charming and eloquent homewares on the Surf Coast, head to Salt Homeswares in the arcade off Gilbert Street, Torquay. The store includes a carefully selected range of homewares, gifts and jewellery. Owner and manager, Adam Swann, has been running homeware stores in Torquay for the past nine years. This has allowed him to develop a sharp eye and good reputation for choosing quality and beautiful products. His interest in homewares was sparked from working as a photographer for interiors, homeware and living companies, including working for Vogue Living. Being a local artist himself, Swann goes to a conscious effort to include local and Australian products in his store. “I try to source a lot of Australian designs that are not mass produced. I like to buy stuff

that is well made but at a good price point, hence the Australian products,” he said. Swann also sells his own paintings in the store – and they have become one of the most popular items. “I use a lot of stencils I’ve made in my work. I don’t like to use a lot of brushes. There is a lot of layering and a high textures effect to give depth,” he said. Between running his store, painting and doing occasional visual merchandising consultancy work in Melbourne, Swann has had an extremely busy year. “I don’t really have days off. A lot of nighttimes are spent painting. I work all day then paint until 2am and do it all again,” he said. “But it’s been good, the work has been there.” Salt Homewares is located at Shop 4/ 7 Gilbert Street, Torquay. For more information, phone 5261 9661.

Giving you a helping hand to see the bigger picture BY SARAH LAWRENCE FOR THE best quality service on your antennas on the Bellarine, contact Bellarine Peninsula Antennas. With more than 20 years experience, owner and manager Bill Mouchemore has a wealth of information on the industry and quality products. The business is able to help with all your antenna needs – from set top boxes, rooftop systems, outdoor speakers to installing a full in-house cinema experience.

Mouchemore started in the business at the age of 16 as an electronics technician. After eight years he started up his own business – which he successfully ran for 12 years. He then took a break to look after his family and work as an electrical contractor, however, two years ago he restarted his business and he believes things have never been busier or better in the industry. “I’m a pleaser, which means if anyone says anything bad about my business, I hate it. So I’ll

always do the best for my customers,” he said. “I like my job because I know it well. My customers are nearly always exceptionally happy with the service I provide.” Mouchemore’s advice to people buying a new television or set top box is to stick with the names they know and trust. “If you have a near-new TV, buy a new set top box. If your TV is getting a bit long in the tooth, buy a TV with a digital turner built in and stick with the

names you grew up with.” Mouchemore is also positive about the future of the antenna business. Even though the industry is already busy, especially on the Bellarine due to expanding population, he anticipates it to get even busier. “The future holds plenty of work for those who know what they’re doing, have the right equipment and knowledge to back them up,” he said. For more information, phone Bellarine Peninsula Antennas on 0417 746 556.

Renewed pews preserve the past

St Therese Church Revitalisation Appeal

The revitalisation of St Therese Church has commenced. This letter is to bring you up to date with the project and to request your support for the Revitalisation Appeal currently under way. We are fortunate today to have a simple community church in Torquay that has served the needs of local people for close to 50 years. As Torquay rapidly expands there is a pressing need to refurbish the current facility and provide for the future requirements of this community. The work being undertaken involves the extension, reorientation and refurbishment of the existing church building, the addition of a Blessed Sacrament Chapel, construction of a multi-use community gathering space and external landscaping. A significant portion of the existing church will remain and form the basis of the refurbished facility with additional space to accommodate summer and special occasion crowds. Graham Law and Associates, a firm of architects with extensive experience in contemporary church design, has been appointed to develop the plans and project manage the construction. Rendine Constructions of Geelong is the builder and the anticipated completion date is early 2010 in line with the goal of blessing the refurbished building in January, exactly 50 years after the blessing of the original building. The Fundraising Committee is working to raise $150,000. Financing the refurbishment of St Therese Church is a major commitment for the parish and we need the support of the whole community. We seek your support to complete this exciting project. You can contact us for a brochure which outlines how you can contribute to the revitalisation project by sponsoring one of the existing Church pews that will be restored and reused when St Therese Church reopens. Sponsorships cost $1,000 and can be given in two equal instalments. If you do not wish to sponsor a pew we welcome your donation towards the Appeal; contributions both large and small are needed. Strong support has already been received from many members of our community but we still have a considerable way to go to reach the Appeal target. If you have any questions about this project please feel free to contact me at the Parish House, 8 Griffith Street Grovedale or phone 5243 9891 / 0400 524 363 or you may wish to speak to the Appeal Coordinator Peter Morgan, phone 5261 3520. Please support us to make this vision a reality. Yours in Christ,

‘Reflections:

THE RESTORATION of the pews is a vital link between the past and future for Torquay’s St Therese Church. The pews were made with Tasmanian oak timber 50 years ago and should now be able to serve the needs of churchgoers for at least another 50 years. Carpenters and joiners who have inspected the 4.7m long pews say it would be almost impossible to acquire similar flawless lengths of this timber today, and the cost would be prohibitive. A dedicated team of volunteers, under retired Torquay builder Peter Morgan, is now well past the half-way stage of the pews restoration project. With 51 pews to go into the revised church interior layout, 30 have now been finished and are in storage at Grovedale and Lara. The pieces of the remaining 21 pews have been prepared for reassembly and are under wraps in a Lara factory. Work on the pews began more than four months ago after the pews were transported to Lino Bisinella’s Lara factory, where the volunteers knocked them down into more than 440 components, each numbered for later reassembly. In the process, an ice cream container full of recovered screws and about 150 plywood panels from the seat backs were saved and given to the Torquay Community Men’s Shed. Some of these panels were to be made into habitat boxes for possums and birds in Victoria’s bushfire devasted areas. The pew components were trucked to Steve Bencich’s Cedar Windows factory at Moolap where they were put through sanding and dovetail joining processes. Some of the seat and back planks had to go through the large industrial sanding machine up to eight times to remove old varish finishes and to eradicate gouges and other damage. All of the ends were cut from their “rectangular” shape to a more modern shape. After being trucked back to the Lara factory, Peter oversaw the sanding and painting stages, with an undercoat and two coats of clear finish polyurethane applied to about 550 individual parts. The first pew was then reassembled. Key volunteers from Torquay were Ken Cotterill, Charles Forer, Jim Collins, Dominic Monaghan, David Newton, Fred Vahland and Ed Featherston, and from Grovedale Alan Fossey and Danny Guiney. The new layout calls for a number of short 2.4m pews, so some new end sections had to be made and a few longer 4.7m pews had to be divided into two. Peter was also helped at various stages by carpenters Tony Iacano, Steve Voss and James Gray. When reassembly began, the first pew, a short 2.4m unit, took two hours for three men to put together, but a five-man team was reassembling 4.7m units in just 35 minutes towards the end of this stage of the work. Peter was in severe pain for much of the project and underwent a hip replacement operation last month which sees him out of action until February. He is confident the remaining pews can then be completed in time to grace the revitalised church. The team feels even the Carpenter from Nazareth and his earthly father, also a carpenter, would be pleased with how this phase of the work has turned out.

Ling just loves it locally BY SARAH LAWRENCE AFTER a busy – and successful – year of football, one of the region’s favourite resident footballers, Cameron Ling, spoke exclusively to the Surf Coast Times about his festive season plans. Ling’s weekly column proved popular during the football season, becoming one of the best-read sections throughout the year. “It was good fun and a great experience and challenge,� Ling said. “Writing is harder than it looks. It was enjoyable getting feedback from people in town about it – some people might like something or others may disagree with a point.� The Geelong star will be staying locally over the Christmas break - enjoying spending time with his family and friends. “I just got back into training three weeks ago after visiting Newcastle and Indonesia to do some

We are all pretty motivated to get in the best nick we can. an. “We have to move on from the success cess of last season.

Then on Boxing Day my mates and family eat the leftovers then have a big game of backyard cricket‌ it’s our own mini-Boxing Day Test. “New Year’s I’ll probably go to the Edge in Geelong, where I’m a co-owner, and have a nice relaxing evening.â€? Ling is often spotted at Bells Beach surfing, at local cafes or walking his black Labrador, Maggie, along the beach. “I love it down here because it’s great any time of year. It’s a good escape from footy. Even in the winter it goes back to that small coastal community,â€? he said. “Going to Swell in Jan Juc for coffee is great. I also have to admit to eating pizza from Waves a lot. “I go there when I can’t be bothered cooking after a hard game in Melbourne – their number is even saved to my phone.â€?

Planting success at 13th Beach THIRTEENTH Beach Golf Links is on a mission to establish and grow thousands of ‘carbon-eating’ trees on its golf courses. In recent years more than 8,000 trees have been planted on the former asparagus farm and beef cattle property which was virtually treeless, apart from old fenceline cypresses and pines, before the complex’s two championship golf courses were built. About 5,000 trees were planted in the winter of 2008, but lack of spring rain saw many die. This year, a further 2,500 trees have been planted and the recent spring rain has seen them growing well – but not without regular attention from staff and some dedicated members. Last week a members’ working bee helped ‘top up’ the work already done by staff by spreading truckloads of mulch around many of the trees to help water retention.

      

Golf club members Georgie Daw, Graeme Daw and Alan Lipshut spread mulch around a thriving gum tree at 13th Beach.

It is critical for Geelong that we have a regional airport for a multitude of reasons, including tourism, business infrastructure generally, fire-fighting and medical emergency. Commonsense would also suggest that this would likely be an appropriate site for a motorbike facility, where abundant land would be readily available and there would be many potential synergies for both parties in this situation, the least of which would be to provide a source of income for the airport. Such an outcome would be both an efficient and effective use of scarce public resources. Lyn George, Barrabool

Kindness helps keep the festive cheer alive and well

Gerard Menses CEO Vision Australia

Dear Editor,

No support for Jan Juc footpath proposal

At Vision Australia we are reminded of the importance of strong partnerships and how through working as one we can achieve so much for our community. Thank you to everyone who has continued to support us through what has been a challenging year. Our Christmas Appeal, featuring five-year-old Layla, has gone extraordinarily well and the public have dug deep to support children, like Layla, who are blind or have low vision. Thanks to your support of our Christmas campaign, Myer Gift Wrap and Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight®, Vision Australia is able to continue to provide vital services to the thousands of children and adults who are blind or have low vision across Australia. The gift of independence and opportunity these funds will provide is the best Christmas gift an Australian who is blind or have low vision could receive. I wish everyone a very peaceful festive season and look forward to continuing our partnership in 2010.

Dear Editor, In response to the public notice and letter of demand for money to fund footpaths in Jan Juc, I hereby refuse as a Surf Coast Shire ratepayer of 12 years to support this plan. I will NOT benefit from this plan as suggested by the council and object to both the plan and the manner in which council has imposed it upon property owners. I recently completed a survey stating pathways were sufficient for my needs, and now council has decided to waste more money making Jan Juc look like suburbia. I moved from Melbourne 12 years ago to live in a country area and cement pathways do not enhance the natural landscape of such a beautiful place. Catherine Miller Jan Juc

The first priority of the Lorne Community Hospital Board of Management at all times is the safety of hospital staff, and the dependent residents and patients staying in our care. This is particularly the case in relation to bushfire risk. Therefore, significant planning and consideration has been undertaken by the hospital board and senior staff to develop the hospital’s strategies in the lead up to the 2010 bushfire season. The hospital board has adopted a policy of “stay and shelter in place” for predicted Code Red days. This is considered the lowest risk option with the best outcome for our highly dependent residents and the staff. The decision to stay has been based on a thorough assessment of the risks using the best

available information, and advice received from a range of independent sources, including experts engaged by the department of health to assist the staff and board. The decision to stay will enable the hospital to continue to fulfill the invaluable urgent care and acute role of a public hospital over the busy summer period where we see an influx of visitors and holiday-makers in the area. This will, of course, be subject to the proviso that there is adequate staffing and resources to maintain safe levels of service. Many staff drive to work through areas of high fire risk and many will be unable to come to work on these days. On Code Red days all staff will be withdrawn from community and district nursing programmes. These staff may be needed to assist with the care of our nursing home residents and acute patients, therefore, on Code Red and heatwave days there will be no district nursing service and the planned activity groups will not operate (this includes the No Falls Exercise group and bus trips to Colac and Geelong).

The hospital’s success in implementing a reliable “stay and shelter in place” policy and in continuing to offer emergency care will depend largely on available resources. Hospital resources will rapidly be overextended if members of the general public seek refuge in the hospital. Providing refuge is not the role of the hospital and we are therefore actively encouraging community members and visitors to exclude the hospital as a place of refuge and to develop their individual fire plans. Resources are available to assist you to develop individual fire and emergency plans on www.cfa.vic.gov.au and www.redcross.org.au We encourage you to access these and be well prepared. If you have any questions relating to hospital services, please don’t hesitate to call the hospital reception on 5289 4300. I wish you a safe and healthy summer.

SPECIAL FEATURE

CELEBRATING SENIORS

Tuesday 29 December 2009

Reflecting on 50 years BY SARAH LAWRENCE WITH the approaching 50th anniversary of the building of St Therese Church, a book has been launched to celebrate the occasion. Torquay resident Carmel Dunstone and former resident Catharina Koopman took up the challenge to chart the history of the church earlier this year in their book called Reflections. Dunstone has had previous experience in writing about local history with her book Turn of the Tide in 1999. She is also an active member of the Torquay and District Historical Society. Koopman, who now lives in Canberra but visits family in Torquay regularly, spent her primary and secondary education days in the town. Father Michael Fitzpatrick, who has a connection with St Therese Church dating back to the 1970s when Torquay was part of his St Bernard’s Parish,

officiated at the launch. He recalled with great clarity and humour the events of the 1970s and 1980s, and remembered having Mass in the Torquay Hall. Spencer Leighton, President of the Torquay and District Historical Society, also spoke about the contribution this publication makes to the definitive history of Torquay. Reflections will be available for sale after Masses during December and January. It will also be available at Torquay Books on Gilbert Street, and Wing and a Prayer book store in Malop Street, Geelong for $19.95. Catharina Koopman, Carmel Dunstone, Spencer Leighton and Rosemary Featherston at Torquay Books with copies of Reflections.

QUEENSCLIFF-Point Lonsdale RSL sub-branch has received a federal government grant to support the health and wellbeing of the local ex-service community. The $2,275 grant, announced recently by federal Member for Corangamite, Darren Cheeseman, comes as part of the Australian government’s Veteran and Community Grants programme. “Veteran and Community Grants provide onthe-ground funding for local projects that promote health and wellbeing in the veteran community,” Cheeseman said. “Projects funded through the grants programme include initiatives that encourage veterans, war widows and widowers to learn new life skills to help them remain independent, as well as social activities and support for carers.

“This grant will help the Queenscliff-Point Lonsdale RSL sub-branch to purchase a refrigerator and freezer for the kitchen and also replace worn seating in the recreation area”. Veteran and Community Grants are available to ex-service and community organisations, veteran representative groups and private organisations that contribute to the health and welfare of the veteran community. “I congratulate the Queenscliff-Point Lonsdale RSL sub-branch on its good work, and this valuable initiative to support veterans on the Bellarine,” Cheeseman said. For more information on the Veteran and Community Grants programme, visit www.dva.gov. au/grants or contact the Department of Veterans’ Affairs office on 133 254 (for metro callers) or 1800 555 254 (for non-metro callers).

Star Profile

SENIOR COMMUNIT Y

SPECIAL FEATURE

Aileen’s star appeal OUR CHOICE of recipient for this month’s senior star could make for some interesting moments at the Torquay Senior Citizens Hall in the coming weeks. Current treasurer, Aileen Bruce, was nominated by Norma Saunders for the award, and when told that she had been put forward, she had a few choice words for her fellow committee member – all in good spirit, of course.

“No wonder she has gone to Sydney for two months,” Aileen said of her good friend. “When she gets back here I’ll kill her for this…” Despite her modesty, Aileen has been a pillar of the community since she moved to Torquay in the early 1990s. We caught up with Aileen to find out more about her community efforts over the past 14 years.

Q. How long have you lived in Torquay?

and by us all working together we get everything done. It’s a great little club to be involved in and I really enjoy it.

A. About 15 years now. We did own a holiday house down

here when we were living in and working in Reservoir and we would come down and spend weekends and holidays down here. The town has changed so much since we started coming down that it is just amazing – it is no longer the small town we first knew, but we still enjoy it here.

Q. What did you do in Reservoir? A. My husband and I lived there for about 40 years and I was at a printing firm for around 30 years. Q. When did you first get involved with the Senior Citizens?

A. It was probably about 12 months after we moved

down here permanently – so 14 years ago. I was secretary and am currently treasurer. I have been treasurer for the last nine years now. I hire out the hall and that type of thing, but it is a great team effort from a lot of people to keep everything going. I don’t do a lot more than anyone else,

Q. What other organisations are or have you been involved with?

A. I am involved with Meals on Wheels, I have been helping with deliveries for about 10 years. They were on the lookout for people and I volunteered and have been doing it ever since. I think they are always looking for people to help. I also help out in the tea rooms in the Botanical Gardens at Geelong. I have been there around 10 years, too. When I was in Reservoir I wasn’t in any committee or club – other than with kids and mothers’ clubs and tuck shops – but once I finished work and came down here I have got right into it. Q. So what do you do to relax? A. I tend to keep pretty busy through the week with what

I am involved in. I don’t do a lot outside of that, except spend time with the family. I have two children here in Torquay and three living in Melbourne. And I have 11 grandchildren in all, so they keep me pretty busy.

Continued support for mental health MINISTER for Veterans Affairs, Alan Griffin, has encouraged members of the veteran community to seek appropriate help for mental health issues. Griffin said the Veterans and Veterans Families Counselling Service (VVCS) provided counselling and group programmes to Australian veterans, peacekeepers, their families and eligible Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel. “Some veterans and their family members experience mental health problems as a result of their service,” Griffin said. “I urge any veteran or veterans’ family member who wants more information about improving their mental health to contact the VVCS on 1800 011 046.

“Even if you are dealing with my department on compensation or other matters, don’t wait to address your mental health issues. “VVCS is a free, confidential and responsive service that can provide you with the support you need when you need it most. “Almost 50,000 veterans have a mental health disability, so I understand that the treatment of illnesses such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and related conditions is very close to the hearts of those in the ex-service community.” Griffin said the government was doing more now to assist veterans and transitioning ADF members with mental health-related problems, than ever

before in the history of Australia’s participation in conflicts and peace operations. “In addition to the $145million spent on veteran’s mental health annually, the government has allocated $92million over four years to better meet the mental health needs of veterans and current and former serving members of the ADF, including $9.5million to my department to implement recommendations from Professor Dunt’s Independent Study into Suicide in the Ex-service community,” Griffin said. Other initiatives include $5.5million for the Australian Centre for Posttraumatic Mental Health to develop ADF and veteran-specific mental health initiatives, more free Operation Life suicide

prevention workshops for people who are concerned about family, friends, mates or others in the veteran and ex-service community. The At Ease website (www.at-ease.dva.gov. au) also provides veteran-specific information on common mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety and posttraumatic stress disorder and substance misuse, and links to mental health services and other resources. “These programmes demonstrate the government’s commitment to mental health awareness and treatment across the veteran community, however, there is always be more that can be done, and we will continue to do more.”

Funeral Planning, a smart choice for those who have a lot more Life to Live. Tuckers Funeral and Bereavement Service has provided families in and around the Geelong area with quality service since 1883 and continues to be committed to ensuring security and peace of mind when meeting financial pre-arrangement needs. In her specialised role at Tuckers, Michele assists families with information on funerals and issues related to making arrangements for funerals. She believes that prearranging and pre-paying for your funeral are both an integral part of sensible retirement and estate planning, and is as essential as making a will. “It just makes good sense.” says Michele, “No one wants their family to worry, and it’s much easier to organise things when you are still well and healthy.” The good news is that a pre-paid funeral ensures costs are fixed at today’s prices and that your expressed wishes are carried out, especially if your arrangements become part of your will. Also pre-paid funerals are not means tested against pension entitlements and are safely invested with a fund manager to keep up with inflation rates. surfcoasttimes.com.au

Two options to consider; Prepaid Funerals • The funeral arrangement is purchased at today’s cost and remains fixed forever regardless of inflation and future price increases. • The funeral plan protects pension entitlements and is exempt under both the Pension’s Asset and Income Test. • Funds are invested securely with a Fund Manager in compliance with the Victorian Prepaid Funeral Legislation. • A prepaid funeral will eliminate the financial commitment and difficult decisions often left with family members and/or executors. • All funeral plans are tailored to individual needs and formally documented in a contract. Funeral Bonds • Accumulate funds to help meet the future cost of a funeral. • It is capital guaranteed by a Fund Manager • It can be paid by installments on a fortnightly, monthly or quarterly basis to suit you, and can be automatically debited from a specific bank account. Responsive approach and flexibility to all individual needs and circumstances have given Tuckers the opportunity to offer families funeral plan options that are within the realm of affordability.

BY SARAH LAWRENCE IT SEEMS it is getting harder and harder for mothers and babies to find products that are natural and chemical free. Enter Torquay resident, Jan Emmett, who has created a range of aromatherapy products specially designed for mothers and babies that are 100 per cent chemical free, organic and made to order. Essence O’Smell started two years ago and Emmett has seen many people benefits from her products. “When I first started out doing aromatherapy I literally bought and read many books, purchased bottles and bottles of essential oils and then dabbled with different blends and used my family and friends as guinea pigs,� said Emmett. “I feel drawn to natural therapies; they have always interested me since I was a young girl. “I had a lot of experience with it when I was caring for my late husband. We were heavily involved in Rotary so I’ve always been around caring environments.� In her mother’s range she includes Blues Juice to help mothers relax in the bath, Milk Buddies Balm to help soothe sore nipples and The Gentle Touch as gentle massage oil to use in pregnancy. Emmett has found one of her most effective products in the women’s range has been Just the Drop, which has shown to dramatically help with women’s stretch marks before and after pregnancy. In her baby range she has three key products; they include Little Ray of Sunshine that is ideal for cradle cap, eczema and helps with restlessness symptoms’ Grumble Bum, which aims to soothe baby bottoms; and Grumble Tum, which helps with symptoms of colic. All products also come beautifully packaged

Top honour for Bellarine Health BELLARINE Community Health has been recognised with the inaugural Premier’s Community Volunteering Awards. BCH provides a range of opportunities for volunteering and was honoured as a finalist in the regional category of the Community Volunteering Innovation Award. Premier John Brumby and Community Development Minister Peter Batchelor presented the awards, which are a key part of the state government’s $9.3million volunteering strategy. Brumby said volunteers were the lifeblood of Victoria’s strong communities. “Volunteers are leaders in the community and they are people who build communities and hold them together,� he said. “We know Victorians are willing to lend a hand in tough times, which was demonstrated during last summer’s bushfires when thousands of people came forward as volunteers. “That is why we believe it is important to recognise and celebrate their great work at these awards.� Brumby said the Community Volunteering Awards celebrated the contribution organisations and volunteers made to creating stronger communities. “We all have a role in creating a community where people respect themselves, respect others and

respect our community,� he said. “We value the contribution of volunteers and

want to encourage even more people to get involved in their community.�

Shop around for the best mortgage deal RISING interest rates have continued to increase the minimum repayments for variable rate home loan borrowers and continue to make budgeting a challenge, which is why moving to another loan may save money, time and stress. Mortgage lenders continue to battle each other for market share by introducing more loan options, which can only mean good news for borrowers preparing for further rate rises. As more loan options become available, why don’t more borrowers shop around more often? Mortgage Choice, Australia’s largest independently-owned mortgage broker, believes the ever-changing property finance market provides a good opportunity to consider a home loan refinance. “Economic uncertainty has encouraged many Australians to stick with what they know, and many do so regardless of the economic climate because they get lazy and don’t shop around every few years,” said Kristy Sheppard, senior corporate affairs manager at Mortgage Choice. “We are happy to be receiving calls from a number of borrowers who are determined to not sit back and let their mortgage manage them.” Regularly reassessing your situation provides peace of mind that you are either doing the right thing by your finances or need to make changes. “While interviewing 200 customers who recently received loan approvals, for our monthly satisfaction survey, Mortgage Choice found approvals for refinancing have started to edge up,” Sheppard said. “This is a trend we see likely to continue as borrowers become more comfortable with their job stability, financial situation and the economy,

and want to explore their options to better prepare themselves for the future. “Australians with home loans may be surprised by how much they could save through refinancing to a loan with lower fees and/or a lower interest rate, which is a great way to deal with further rate rises. “Moving to a product that is cheaper overall, or has improved features, definitely has its benefits, however, understand the switching and exit fees and ensure the benefits outweigh the costs. “If you were offered $50,000 for doing a little extra work, you’d take it... why not take the time to visit a reputable mortgage broker and see if you can save yourself having to pay that money over the life of your loan, simply by changing loan products. Shopping around now can pay off in the long run.” With the economy on its way up and new home loan options regularly entering the market, borrowers should reassess their financial needs now and see if their loan matches their situation over the next few years. “Refinancing can be a smart way to manage your money and revisit your expectations for the year ahead,” Sheppard said. “A regular home loan health check is a great way to keep on track. Every borrower should be doing this at least every couple of years to make sure they are making the most of their mortgage situation. “A reputable mortgage broker can easily compare your current loan to those on the market, saving you time, hassle and possibly money.” For more information, visit www. mortgagechoice.com.au

STOCKMARKETS around the world made reasonable gains in a week characterised by low volume as investors went into holiday mode. In Australia, the S&P/ASX 200 posted gains of 2.8 per cent to close at 4,781.8 points and in the US the tech heavy Nasdaq index was up a solid 3.3 per cent for the week. US economic data was generally disappointing, which was seemingly ignored by investors for the most part. The US market was relatively unmoved by data showing a 11.3 per cent drop in new home sales for November, falling to a seven-month low. Elsewhere, the final estimate of gross domestic product showed that US GDP grew at an annual rate of 2.2 per cent in the third quarter, below the 2.8 per cent forecast. Additionally, the December reading on consumer sentiment from the Reuters/University of Michigan surveys and November personal spending both came in weaker than expected. On the positive side of the ledger, US claims for jobless benefits dropped to a 15-month low, showing an improvement in the labour market. There was also a rise in orders for US manufactured durable goods. In Australia, a survey by the National Retailers Association raised concerns that Christmas spending would be well down on last year, adding to evidence that it has been a weak Christmas period so far for traders. In company news, Macarthur Coal made an offer to buy Noble’s Gloucester Coal unit in an all-share deal that would create Australia’s biggest independent coal producer. Both company’s shares responded well to the news with Macarthur Coal’s shares jumping 10.3 per cent to $10.37 and Gloucester Coal’s shares soaring 30.8 per cent to $8.50. Quiet trading is again expected with another holiday shortened trading session this week.

Clifton Springs

Curlewis

This well established course surrounded by bushland and wildlife offers unique challenges to both competitive and social golfers. With natural bushland, wildlife and beautiful scenic views it is renowned as one of Australia’s most picturesque. Many native kangaroos graze on the fairways and greens, making the welcoming golf course their home. Relax with a meal or drink in air-conditioned comfort, taking in the panoramic views from the modern clubhouse.

Clifton Springs offers a 5,783m, 18-hole, par 71 championship layout with legend couch fairways and stunning bay views. It is situated on the Bellarine Peninsula, just 20 minutes from Geelong and only 20 minutes from the Queenscliff Sorrento Ferry. The original nine-hole course was constructed in 1888, along with a tourist hotel built to cater for visitors to popular nearby mineral springs. The present day clubhouse with its bars, members’ lounge, bistro and entertainment area, is on the site of that grand old hotel. The first club competition was believed to have been staged on Saturday, 20 November, 1909 – a hundred years ago this year.

Set on rolling terrain, Curlewis offers a taste of British heathland golf with wide, rolling fairways and large, fast greens. This 6,106m, par 72 layout provides a stimulating challenge to every level of golfer. Undulating fairways and greens offer variety in shot making and require precision in approach shots overall.

Lonsdale

Portarlington

Queenscliff

One of Australia’s most rewarding all weather, seaside courses, Lonsdale is a highly regarded 18-hole, sand belt course, located at the tip of the Bellarine Peninsula, an easy 1.5 hour drive from Melbourne and 25 minutes from Geelong. The recently upgraded course is a 5200 metres, par 71 for men and par 72 for women. The club offers an on-course teaching professional, a well-stocked pro shop and three practice areas. New membership enquiries are very welcome, as are visitors and green fee players. The traditional clubhouse possesses a welcoming atmosphere, excellent bar and dining facilities providing before and after golf snacks, lunches and a la carte dining for members and visitors alike.

Situated on the Bellarine Peninsula, 25 minutes east of Geelong, the course presents a most picturesque setting, with Santa Ana fairways lined with trees, giving you the sense of playing in serene, countryside surrounds. The long, gently undulating course is a challenge for most golfers and a visit to the course is an experience that will not be forgotten. In addition, the club offers an excellent restaurant and first class facilities for members and guests to enjoy.

Queenscliff Golf Club provides a unique island setting with fresh air, natural beauty and an array of birdlife. The beauty of the course is never lost on golfers, changing with the seasons and the time of day. Being on an island built up by drifting sand it is an all weather course which is always playable regardless of heavy rain.

The Sands Torquay

Thirteenth Beach

The Sands signals the first foray into golf course architecture for 2002 Australian Open champion Stuart Appleby. Bunkering is a feature of the design, with sand blending seamlessly into the seaside backdrop. Some holes on the back nine border the foreshore reserve and crashing surf of Bass Strait. Look especially forward to the 14th hole, a par four laid out alongside sand dunes, with views along the coastline to Barwon Heads.

Set on the stunning Bellarine Peninsula, Thirteenth Beach Golf Links is a premium 36-hole golf facility open to public players. The first of the two courses, The Beach Course, was opened in December 2001. The challenging and natural links style course consistently receives high accolades, being voted 8th Best Public Access Course in Australia (Golf Australia Magazine Jan, 2009). The Creek Course, designed by Tony Cashmore and six-time major championship winner Sir Nick Faldo, is a wonderful complement to The Beach Course and offers golfers a parkland experience. With a modern clubhouse and restaurant open seven days a week and on site accommodation, in Sir Nick Faldo’s words: “The whole development is nothing short of outstanding�.

signaturehole  The final par 3, the 16th is a picturesque hole of 125m that is best played from the upper left tee to fully appreciate the hole. Played across a valley to an elevated and very small green a well judged shot is required. Anything landing on the front of, or short of the green will roll well back down the hill. There is a very deep bunker on the left of the green from where 3 is very rarely made. The bunker on the right is not much better and avoid being long at all costs. Once on the green, putting is not difficult, but beware of the speed putting from the back of the green.

 Clifton Springs has one of the most picturesque settings of any golf courses in Victoria. The majority of holes and the clubhouse itself have wonderful views of Port Phillip Bay, the Geelong shipping channel, Avalon Airport and the You Yangs. So it’s no wonder the 330m, par four, dog-leg-left 18th hole is regarded by most players as the club’s signature hole. From the tee, players can, before addressing their ball, have a cliff-top view of the beach below and the remains of an old jetty used in the late 19th century by paddle steamers bringing tourists from Melbourne to the nearby mineral springs. Most players aim to put their drive up to the corner, clear of an old blue spruce tree, to open up the green for their second shot. The legend couch fairway into the green is lined with trees, including a very large Moreton Bay Fig that overhangs the green and which was probably planted back in the days when the grand old Clifton Springs Hotel stood near where today’s modern clubhouse is situated. It’s a hole that provides a great finish for a championship golf course that hosted some of Australia’s top touring professionals in 15 pro ams since 1993.

Clifton Springs Golf Club is a picturesque layout that borders Corio Bay with views to Geelong and the You Yangs. The course is located a mere one hours drive from the West Gate Bridge near Drysdale on the Bellarine Peninsula. The Clifton Springs Golf Club is one of the best in the Bellarine region with stunning views across the bay. Being central to Port Phillip Heads and Geelong in the middle of the Bellarine wine district and with easy access to both surf and bay beaches the club offers the perfect day or weekend visit. The dining area is open seven days a week for snacks and Ă  la carte lunch and dinner. The Clifton Springs Golf Club course is a par 71 of 5,783 metres for men and par 72 of 5,213 metres for women. The Club has an onsite Pro Shop, dining area looking out over the bay and a superb golf course which is available for both visiting AGU members to enter in competitions and casual green fee players.

LONSDALE GOLF CLUB meetthepro

signaturehole



 

Lonsdale enthusiastically welcomes Sean Charleston as its new Director of Golf and Club Professional. Sean takes up the appointment in January 2010, having spent the last two and a half years at the Portland Golf Club. Prior to that he was Head Professional at the highly rated Moonah Links and has a total of 11 years in the golf industry. Sean is very well credentialed in understanding the needs of golfers and takes great pride in delivering proven golf teaching programs. In his own words “ My passion is to run a successful professional golf business, together with the development of training programs and events that promote golf course growth. “ Sean will take control of the newly completed Pro Shop and guide Members and visiting golfers in equipping themselves to suit their particular circumstances. This is in addition to organising the provision of golf tuition at all levels of playing –men, women and juniors. There will be expanded golf playing opportunities including twilight and early bird golf.

Lonsdale Golf Club is made up of some picturesque holes overlooking Lake Victoria. It is set amongst the subtly undulating terrain of Point Lonsdale. A hole that perfectly defines the character of Lonsdale is the 12th. Not a very long hole but deceptively tricky. The hole is 312m for the men and 302m for the women and it begins with a raised teeing area that overlooks the lake and the green. The top of the hill is 150m from the tee and shots that land past this area will gain another 50m. It pays to aim up the left, as once over the hill, the ball will run to the right, making the player hit over the bunker that protects the elevated green. The design of the hole gives the player the option of attacking the green or playing short and left of the green for a straightforward pitch shot. This hole is a good test of one’s golfing ability and impressive to look at.

facilities Lonsdale Golf Club is a highly regarded, 18-hole sand belt golf course with a varied layout, situated on beautiful Lake Victoria in Point Lonsdale on the Bellarine Peninsula. Located at the entrance to Port Phillip Bay, the club is an easy 1.5 hours drive from Melbourne and 25 minutes from Geelong and close to a variety of accommodation, dining and tourist attractions. The course is a par 71 of 5,200m for men and a par 72 of 5,200m for women. The club offers an on-course teaching professional, well-stocked pro shop and three practice areas. The course continues to receive high praise from Members and visitors alike and is set for future improvement. New membership enquiries are very welcome, as are visitors and green fee players. The traditional clubhouse possesses a welcoming atmosphere, excellent bar and dining facilities providing before and after golf snacks, lunches and a la carte dining for members and visitors alike.

Industry Info

By Enzo Raimondo, CEO REIV

Looking forward to 2010 THIS year has been a remarkable one for real estate and in 2010 there are a number of issues that will be high on the agenda. These include: Population and housing supply The improved confidence in the economy over the past few months has revealed the underlying housing issue, which is the failure to provide enough housing for our growing population. The result of this failure is two-fold: rapidly increasing property prices and continually low rental vacancy rates. The solution is simple – more homes – but this appears to be drastically difficult to achieve. Interest rates There have been three interest rate increases in three consecutive months, a step that is as unprecedented as the rapid rate reductions by the Reserve Bank a year ago. According to the Real Estate Institute of Australia, the most significant impact on affordability has been interest rates. Twelve months ago the average monthly loan repayment was $2,161 and in the September quarter this year it was $1,684. More rate increases next year will have an impact on the property market. Climate change and housing The attention of decision-makers on the issue of combating climate change is shifting towards established residential property. Over the last few years, standards have been set for the construction of new homes and offices and next year will see the focus shift for the first time to established residential property. This will occur primarily through the nationwide requirement for owners to disclose the energy performance of their dwellings when renting or selling from May 2011.

THE NUMBER of people investing in property across Australia is growing at a tremendous pace. LJ Hooker Torquay owner, Bill Nairn, said statistics confirmed that more and more people are turning to property as a means of a secure investment. “According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 500,000 more Australians declared a net rental income on their tax returns in 2005-06 than was recorded for 1995-6 – an enormous change across just one decade,” Nairn said. “With the imperfections of the stock market highlighted and the massive population boom in Australia fuelling an insatiable demand for rental properties, astute investors are swarming to bricks and mortar like never before.” So how does one successfully invest in property? “The golden rule is to remember that the key objective of investing is to maximise your financial returns. Therefore, remove any prejudices you may have and keep your mind open to all the best options before you.” Nairn also shared his best tips to help anyone get started in property investing: Seek expert financial advice When setting your budget remember that the regular repayments you will be expected to make must sit within the realities of your personal and financial situation now and in the future. While interest-only products tend to suit a lot of investment situations, there are many different types of loan structures available, so consider the full range of options. Chant the location mantra A home’s proximity now and in the future to varied employment opportunities, major freeways, public transport, schools, shopping centres and other amenities will always impacts on its value. For example, a suburb on the verge of getting a new motorway that connects it to the city maybe a great place to buy into. Do your homework Do the research. Once you have shortlisted a few suburbs, speak to local real estate agents and look at their vacancy rates and average age of the rental stock in the area. Also, find out what the accommodation needs of your target rental market is. For example, are they typically overseas students who want apartments close to universities and transport or, young families who want low maintenance three bedroom homes with energy and water saving appliances. Know what is in demand. Consider different type of structures. Think about the properties that best suit your investment objectives. For example, you might want a newer unit that

delivers better depreciation allowances and sits well with your negative gearing strategy. Or, you might want a house that delivers a stable income to help you meet the monthly loan repayments.”

Search for clues in history If a property you are considering buying is currently being rented, ask to look at the payment history – this information may also be useful when you are applying for finance. Hire the best to help you manage your investment Like any other investment, a property investment needs to be managed expertly, if you want the best return possible. Consider the services of a professional Property Investment Manager skilled to deal with the many demands. Without the expert, you may also find yourself inadvertently neglecting your essential duty of care responsibilities and leaving yourself wide open to the risk of legal liability. Polish the nugget you are sitting on One way to achieve capital growth is to buy a property and leave it for a few years. The other more judicious way, is to continuously work to upgrade the property – this adds to its value at sale time and also ensures you attract a better quality of tenants, prepared to pay higher rents, as the years go by.

‘LAND SIZE AND POSITION

• Offered separately or together if you like, two spacious 1 acre allotments both with road access and utilities already connected • Larger than normal prescribed building envelopes will allow you to site a generous sized holiday house compared to the normal township blocks • Elevated ocean views never to be lost or altered

• The unchangeable view line to the north/east is the defining and enduring characteristic of this property. Wye and Sep Creek beaches are in clear view as is the Wye Point and the waves smashing below. • The 30 year old house isn’t going anywhere! A sizable 5 bedroom plus loft, 2 bathrooms, 2 living areas and a large deck on both levels only needs a superficial upgrade.

• Offering two separate parcels of land (a 4296 sqm and a 8400 sqm allotment). • The larger allotment has the potential to build 2 dwellings in different prescribed building envelopes (STCA). • Perched above Separation Creek Beach and only 300m from the beach via a private track, a rare opportunity presents for the savvy coastal purchaser.

Little delivers a lot in building TORQUAY building company Little Constructions ticks all the boxes when it comes to creating new homes and renovations that are unique, environmentally-friendly and stress-free. Mark Little prides himself on maintaining a hands-on presence in every project – from initial quotes and contracts through to project management and pulling on a nail bag when required, Little understands the importance of being involved every step of the way. “From day one it is critical to ensure all parties

are headed in the same direction,” said Little, who stays in weekly – and often daily – contact with his clients. “Contrary to popular belief, there are constant decisions to be made throughout the construction process and our clients appreciate being kept up to date.” At the start of each project, Little conducts a site meeting with the client and a draftsperson to ensure the individuality of the design and to establish a passive solar orientation.

“Most people now understand the environmental and economic value of passive solar buildings and our clients are always pleased to know Little Constructions incorporates it into every design,” he said. Little is a fully-accredited and award-winning builder with more than 15 years’ industry experience and many happy clients across the Surf Coast, Bellarine Peninsula and Geelong.

Why Blue Cove Homes and GreenSmart are better Insulation Insulation, when installed correctly, is one of the best ways to reduce climate impact and conserve energy for the life of the home. We insulate around all doors and windows, not only the walls. Door Frames We bolt each of our doorframes to the floor. Generally builders do not do this. This eliminates problems associated with door slamming and movement. Wetseal All our wet areas are wet sealed with a protective membrane that is guaranteed against water penetration. Water damage continues to be the number one cause of construction liability claims. We also use Epoxy based grouts, which have anti-microbial protection that inhibits the growth of mould. Lighting Where possible, we use low voltage and LED lighting. These are environmentally friendly. Plumbing All our homes have AAA + rated tapware and flow restrictors. Water tanks are plumbed to laundry and toilets. Greywater recycling is also available for those wanting to go for more water savings. The EPA has just endorsed some Greywater systems that HIA has distributed to all GreenSmart builders. Professional Development We are very passionate about GreenSmart building practices. As recourses become scarcer, the products available in this area grow. We continually attend seminars and source materials to help achieve more eco-friendly houses. Site and waste management The demolition and construction of buildings contributes up to 40% of all solid waste in Australian landfills. We use a recycling company that sorts and recycles approximately 60% of waste from our sites. We apply minimalist site cut policies, erect sediment barriers and encourage the use of low embodied building products.

PORTARLINGTON GOLF CLUB meetthepro Matthew Milne is the Portarlington Golf Clubs Club Professional and he has held this position since July 1 2007. After completing his PGA of Australia Traineeship at the end of 2000, Matt competed on the Australian tour as well as in New Zealand and Malaysia. Some of the major events he competed in were the Australian Masters, Jacobs Creek international, Australian PGA, New Zealand Open and Asian Tour School. Matt provides a fully stocked pro shop with leading brands of Titleist, Cobra, Cleveland, Footjoy, Adidas, Bridgestone and Nike at competitive prices. The pro shop is staffed by Matt, Irene and local club champion Tyson Myers. Matt also conducts lessons by appointment only. The cost of lesson is $50 per half hour and this includes video analysis and V1 teaching software. Although Portarlington is a private members course we do allow social players outside of member’s competition times. Bookings are essential and we can be contacted on 52593361.

signaturehole 6LJQDWXUH+ROHWK+ROH PHWUHV0HQVPHWUHV/DGLHV3DU  The signature hole at the Portarlington Golf Club would have to be the 17th hole, a beautiful little par 3 with a water carry and a green, with three bunkers surrounding it, waiting for the off-line tee shot. The teeing area is slightly elevated compared to the green and is set amongst the pine trees on the righthand side. This makes judging the wind difficult at times, as the trees provide a wind shield. The water carry on this hole is around 100-110m and for the shorter hitter, it will come into play. The green sits diagonally to the player from right to left and back to front. Two of the bunkers are located on the right-hand side and short of the green, while one large bunker runs along the front and left-hand side of the green and will catch any shot pulled to the left. The ideal tee shot for the player who can carry the ball all the way to the green is to aim at the centre of the green and let the slope of the green take the ball to the flag (particularly if the pin is back left). For the shorter hitter, there is a gap at the front of the green, which will allow you to run the ball between the bunkers, but ensure you are accurate. Once on the green, putting can be difficult from above the hole. It’s a great little par 3 which can bring a birdie or par, but also undo a good round. Remember, picking the wind direction is crucial for club selection.

facilities Portarlington Golf Course is an excellent, 18-hole course on Victoria’s magnificent Bellarine Peninsula. It is a treelined, challenging course with a wonderful variety of golf holes, pure putting surfaces and excellent year round conditioning. There’s a Bistro that is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. Bookings are recommended.

THE SANDS GOLF CLUB meetthepro

signaturehole 

The Sands Torquay is proud to have Darrell Brown as head professional. With over 25 years experience, including 13 years as head professional at Geelong Golf Club and 6 years at The Sands Torquay, Darrell has been AAA Rated since 1990. His golfing career has seen him play on the Australian Tour for seven years, accumulating an amazing 14 holes in one. Darrell understands the conditioning and skill necessary to improve a golf game making him an exceptional coach. Using state-of-the-art swing analysis video and software, Darrell can study a player’s swing and tailor a program to improve individual technique. Darrell works with players of any level offering both private and group lessons. Along with guiding technique, Darrell custom fits players with clubs, including Henry Griffitts. Players leave safe in the knowledge they have the right clubs and the confidence to enjoy them. With his affable, easygoing personality, Darrell makes golf lessons pleasurable for golfers of all levels.

The Sands Torquay is designed by Australia Open champion Stuart Appleby. The 18 hole links style course intriguingly winds its way through the land behind the sand dunes of Zeally Bay, taking full advantage of the natural beauty of its Surf Coast location. The undulating nature of the course with multiple tees to suit all golfing levels is a testament to Stuart’s commitment and passion. The long 11th hole embodies all of the natural elements of the Torquay site – sand dunes, tall native grasses, Moonah trees and rocky outcrops. Thankfully the wind is normally at the golfer’s back, so a well hit tee shot should clear the small Moonah trees on the left centre of the fairway. The fairway splits around a natural slope with four embedded bunkers before rising to a well protected green, gently tucked into the dunes landscape. If golfers keep their focus here and not become distracted by the natural beauty of the hole, par is possible.

THIRTEENTH BEACH GOLF CLUB meetthepropartners  Thirteenth Beach Golf Links is fortunate to have the services and expertise of two well-respected PGA professionals, Scott Smith and Garry Attrill. Golf coaching has changed dramatically from the days where the Professional simply stood behind you and watched you hit a bucket of balls. Scott and Garry offer students full video and computerised analysis with every private lesson, using state-of-the-art digital cameras and the Swinger motion analysis programme. All lesson summaries are available to take home on CD or can be e-mailed to you. The professionals have over 25 years’ coaching experience between them.

For further information call 5254 2622 or visit www.13thbeachacademy.com

signaturehole            Â Â?  The Beach Course offers a collection of some of the finest par 3 holes in the world. The Beach Course is currently ranked 8th Best Public Access Course in Australia (Golf Australia, Jan 2009). The signature hole is the 7th (165m par 3). Whilst making your way up a sand dune to this enclosed tee, the golfer faces one of the most stunning views of the golf course over Murtnaghurt Lagoon. It is easy to become transfixed in the surrounding scenery, but the 7th requires much greater respect. This magnificently shaped green represents all the wonderful aspects of links golf. To the left of the hole, a small dune sits with two bunkers. On the right-hand side of the dune, a large grassed area feeds all balls striking its vicinity onto the green. At the front of the green, a large, tightly-cut apron allows the golfer to bounce the ball onto the firm putting surface. The right-hand side of the green is protected by many bunkers, including a large deep bunker that protects the back of the green from any shots the slightest bit over clubbed. Come and experience it for yourself.

Will there be snow? BY SARAH LAWRENCE

IF YOU see a man walking around with a snowboard at this week’s Falls Festival, chances are it is comedian Arj Barker. “I’m not much of a surfer but I’m bringing my snowboard to go down the ‘Falls’,” Barker said. “Isn’t it supposed to be snowing there and winter? Like it is in America.” The Californian comedian will be providing plenty of festive cheer at the Lorne festival, with plans to bring the audience lots of eye-watering laughs. “I’m very excited, I’ve heard it’s a lot of fun,” he said. Barker is a legend of the international comedy circuit. He has made numerous appearances on late night talk shows, including the Letterman and Conan O’Brien shows, as well as appearing on Thank God You’re Here, Rove, Spicks and Specks and Good News Week. He also appears in Flight of the Conchords, which has just finished filming the second series. Speaking exclusively to the Surf Coast Times, Barker said he believes he has one of the best jobs in world – something he started doing when he was 20. “I just tried it. I found it fun,” he said in terms of starting out in comedy.

AE WINE | FOOD | GIGS | ARTS

“The scary thing is I didn’t really look past it… I didn’t really think ‘I’m become a comedian’. “I wasn’t always at school – maybe here and there – I’m still not funny. In between shows I’m not so funny. But on stage I get the job done well. Before performing at Falls, Barker took a well-deserved break on the Gold Coast, but stayed well clear of the tourist attractions and theme parks. “Why would you want to go to Movie World – you can watch movies, you don’t need to go into a world of them. That would just be confusing,” he said. “And I hear there is some Australian theme park up there. I’m already in Australia, why would I want to pay $12 to get in somewhere Australian when I’m in the country?” Barker said one of his most embarrassing moments on stage happened in Norway, but he – and the Falls crowd – will be hoping the same thing doesn’t happen this week. “I was on stage and threw up on the audience because I didn’t like the way they looked at me… it was in Norway – and I got arrested,” he said. And his New Year’s resolution? “Just to be happy, relaxed and not worry about anything.” For more information on Arj Barker visit www. arjbarker.com

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

CORKS CREW CELLARS

And the winner is... MY, HOW time flies when you’re having fun. The new year awaits us with who knows what in store? So let’s take this time to reflect on the year that was regarding our Grapevine column. This week’s article is dedicated to my own Wine of the Year award – and why not, it’s my column! So, what’s the criteria? Pretty simple, really; basically, I’ve based it entirely around the wines I’ve featured in the column throughout the year. For regular readers, who could forget my mid-year trip to McLaren Vale – a ‘lost weekend’ of sorts where our group of intrepid wine industry folk sipped and slurped our way through 288 wines in two days? Three terrific wine discoveries came from this sojourn – the deliciously textured 2008 Coriole Fiano; the disarming richness, feel and perfumed complexity of the 2006 Yangarra High Sands Grenache; and the unexpectedly gorgeous 2006 Ulithorne Frux Frugis Shiraz. Another standout I noticed was the deliciousness of the 2007 New Zealand pinot noirs – the Marlborough region wines in particular. The vintage is just superb and shows just how great this variety can be in the ‘new world’, and that NZ isn’t just about Sauvignon Blanc. Having said that, special mention must go to Nina Stoker and the team at Catalina Sounds as their 2009 Sauvignon Blanc is just terrific. Just on that point, make a mental note to self re: the 2009 vintage here also, as word around the traps is this is a freak vintage – definitely one out of the box. Locally, it was the year for Ray Nadeson from Lethbridge Winery. I know I’ve mentioned him quite a bit lately, but how can I help it? He’s involved in just about everything and has won a truckload of awards to prove it. Other highlights included the juicy, slurpy 2007 Portugese reds – the ‘Vallado’ in particular was a favourite among many. One last mention also to De Bortoli’s innovative approach with their valuebased Windy Peak Nouveau Shiraz made in a style not unlike nouveau Beaujolais – simply irresistible. Now, are you sitting down? Eyes front, drum roll please… my award for Grapevine Wine of the Year goes to… the 2006 Ulithorne Frux Frugis McLaren Vale Shiraz. It’s a super wine of beautiful, balanced proportions which is all credit and congratulations to winemaker, Rose Kentish, for her exquisite attention to detail. So, there you go. I take this opportunity to wish you all the very best for the New Year and look forward to sharing more adventures in wine with you along the way.

A seriously good wine masterly crafted by winemaker Rose Kentish. Intense, concentrated, complex and beautifully harmonious. This is an outstanding example of the best that this region – given an equally outstanding vintage in 2006 – could hope to produce. Drink now or let it age gracefully over the next 10-15+ years.

Murphy to get the festival dancing BY SARAH LAWRENCE ONE OF the hottest DJs to come out of Melbourne this year is Andy Murphy. At just 25, Murphy has created a big impression and he will celebrate a successful year by playing at this week’s Falls Festival – with his main aim to keep the crowd on its feet, dancing for hours. “It will be my first Falls, but I love getting down that way. My girlfriend has a holiday house at Point Lonsdale so we get that way a lot,” Murphy told the Surf Coast Times. “I’ll just be bringing the party to Lorne – hope everyone is prepared.” Holding down a residency for Australia’s biggest weekly club night ‘Onelove’ for the past three years, Murphy has locked in regular appearances all over Australia. Apart from conquering the Australian clubbing circuit, he has also toured internationally, most recently around the United States, raising the roof in Miami, New York and Los Angeles.

“They were definitely some of the most exciting places I’ve played. I had too many good nights there,” Murphy said. His talents have also taken him abroad to Dubai, South Korea, Singapore, Bali, New Zealand and more. “Dubai was awesome as well. It was pretty crazy, really good party scene and booming bar culture,” he said. Murphy keeps himself motivated and balanced by juggling DJing with studying for his Masters in Business Marketing, which he is studying part-time at RMIT. “I didn’t realise how busy I was going to get. But uni is a good balance to the party lifestyle. It keeps me level-headed,” he said. Murphy looks to have a hectic new year schedule around his commitments at Falls. “I’m playing at Falls on December 30 then at Sensation and Neverland on new year’s then flying to Sydney on new year’s day at lunch then flying back Melbourne for Better Days in the afternoon.” And there is no slowing down for Murphy;

Tuesday 29 December 2009

the year ahead looks to be just as busy. “I’ve been working hard in the studio and have some new releases for the next year,” he said. “I’m planning to go to Europe, it’s the only place I haven’t played.” And at 25, he admits to living the life he dreamed of. “I’m loving life. At the moment, it couldn’t get any better. I love the travelling, just brought a house and getting back into my fitness,” he said. Murphy is also one of few DJ who can claim that they have dislocated their knee while at work. “I can laugh now but at the time it was serious. I dislocated my knee in the DJ booth a few years ago,” he said. “I was drinking at the time and I didn’t realise, but had to finish my set on a seat. After that I went to hospital. It was quite the DJ dancefloor injury.” For more information on Murphy, visit www.andymurphy.com.au

Endless party to relive the ’70s

Tuesday 29 December 2009

BY SARAH LAWRENCE

Daryl Braithwaite will again provide the entertainment at the fundraiser.

FANCY a night out in your ’70s gear, with great food and entertainment by Daryl Braithwaite to get you up and dancing? If so, then book your ticket for the Rainbow Riders ’70s Endless Summer Party – which is one of the charity’s major fundraisers of the year. The event is renowned on the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula social calendar, and raised more than $20,000 for the charity, which uses horses to help disadvantaged children. Tickets to the party – which will be held at Rainbow Riders’ headquarters on the Barwon Heads Road – are $95, with all proceeds going to the charity. Speaking exclusively to the Surf Coast Times, Braithwaite said he enjoyed the annual event because of its “genuine appeal”. “We did it last year and it was great. I get a lot of different offers to support this and that charity but this one seems

like a good, genuine cause,” he said. Braithwaite is one of Australia’s greatest performers – he started in the 1970s with his band, Sherbet, which produced 20 national Top 40 singles and were the first Australian band to top the $1million mark in album sales. Braithwaite then embarked on a solo career and has enjoyed great success – with 15 of his singles making the Australian top 40 charts, including the number one hit The Horses. “I was either going to be a pro surfer or I started up an apprenticeship as a fitter and turner,” Braithwaite said. “I took singing up as a hobby in 1970 and I’m still doing it today. I still really love it.” And in keeping with the equine theme, Braithwaite confirmed he will be playing his hit song, The Horses. “The song lends itself to a lot of things, people like it because it gives them good feelings, it has never not worked at a performance,” he said. But before he performs at Rainbow

Dress in your ’70s finest and enjoy an endless summer night.

Riders, Braithwaite will be taking time out over Christmas at his twin brother’s house in Geelong and spending New Year’s Eve in Bali. Apart from Braithwaite’s performance, the evening will include numerous auctions, including an exclusive David Bromley oil painting of a boy and horse

valued at $9,000; a fully signed Geelong Football Club premiership jumper and football; a signed jersey from world champion cyclist, Cadel Evans, as well as raffles and lots more. For more information and ticket inquiries, phone 5264 1175 or visit www.rainbowriders.com.au

Creativity at its best BY SARAH LAWRENCE THE LITTLE Stevies have been making a name for themselves with their new wave of music, playing elegant harmonies with catchy guitar hooks and pop melodies. The young band will be playing at the Ocean Grove Park Tranquillity Fair this Saturday and at the Queenscliff Church on Wednesday, January 6. They have been making a name for themselves performing at many of Melbourne’s musical hot spots of late, including the Northcote Social Club and the East Brunswick Club. Parents of band members and sisters, Sibylla and Bethany Stephen, and longtime friend, Robin Geradts-Gill, played in a pop band in the ’70s called Dove, and the trio grew up together, surrounded by music. Since 2008, their group has grown to include Josh Barber, the multi-talented percussion and drums expert. “Quite a few people have actually got in touch with us saying how much they liked our parents’ music,� said GeradtsGill. “Our parents love it that we’re in a

band now. They give us tips and guide us. They know their craft so they’re honest.� The band plays a harmonic-indie style of music that often involves story-telling songs and exceptional live performances. “The girls write most of the songs. We have a lot of storytelling songs about travels, personal stories and even one about a kid who stole a tram,� GeradtsGill said. “In our live acts we talk a lot to the audience. We relax and have lots of fun. People also find the storytelling aspect very engaging.� The band has had a huge year with their new album out, touring interstate every week and their first single, Sunshower, being nominated for a best music video award at the Inside Film Awards. According to Geradts-Gill, being in the band stops them from having full time jobs. However away from the band, all members – still in their early 20s – are involved in some kind of musical and creative job. Geradts-Gill is also a film maker and he has directed all of the band’s

video clips. For their second single, they thought outside the square and produced a nine-minute mockumentary of them cycling around the

See in the new year with Take to the skies Madhouse BY SARAH LAWRENCE FOR the past 15 years, Madhouse has cemented their reputation on the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula as a band to get the crowd up and partying. They will be playing one of their biggest shows on New Year’s Eve at the Geelong Performing Arts Centre for their Rock Around The Clock Performance. The eight-piece, brass driven party band play a range of sounds from R&B, early 1980s to ska and reggae. Their set list includes songs such as Superstition, C'mon Eileen and Tainted Love. They also play covers from bands such as Jet, The Cat Empire, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Black-eyed Peas and Franz Ferdinand. Having been performing together for many years, band member Jon Helmer from Torquay believes their longevity is from having fun and a great friendship. “We love performing, it’s our version of mates catching up for golf or our own little footy team,” he said. While the main Madhouse act is great for packing out the dance floor, they also include two small bands. The first is called 2Tone that plays the laid back likes of Pete Murray, Coldplay, Oasis, Macy Gray and Jeff Buckley. The other is called Jazz Odyssey. “Jazz Odyssey is incidental in style, much like the background music in a groovy cafe and is best situated at the start of an evening to set the vibe as guests arrive or whilst

enjoying a meal,” said Helmer. Event organisers often need to hire two or more groups to get the same diversity of mood to cover an event but Helmer believes the advantage of Madhouse is the diversity of styles they are able to bring in one band. They will also be playing at the Torquay Hotel on Saturday, January 9. “We will start in the beer garden in the evening so people can chill out and relax. We will then move inside with the full band to crank it up and get people dancing,” added Helmer. Tickets for Rock Around The Clock 2009 are $40. For more information or to book, phone 5225 1200 or visit www.gpac.org.au

Summer fun at Barwon Park WINCHELSEA’S Barwon Park Mansion has extended its opening hours next month to help cater for the summer tourist season. The historic mansion will open every Saturday during January, which is in addition to the usual opening times of every Wednesday and Sunday, from 11am-4pm during the year. January is usually a busy time for people visiting Barwon Park and opening on Saturdays will make it more convenient for people to ensure they do not miss out on the Surf Coast’s leading rural tourist attraction. The mansion is located in the heart of the Surf Coast hinterland, on Inverleigh Road just outside of Winchelsea. A majestic 42 room bluestone mansion, Barwon Park was built in 1871 for Thomas and Elizabeth Austin and features an outstanding central staircase, delicate iron lace veranda and is largely in original condition. Refreshments are available or visitors can bring their own picnic and enjoy the panoramic landscape from the shade of the expansive verandas or simply relax in the comfort of the enclosed courtyard.

Something for everyone GEELONG Gallery is gearing up for a busy New Year period with a number of new and exciting exhibitions on display. Four exhibitions will feature at the gallery over the school holiday period – displaying a diverse range of artistic styles. Exclusive to the gallery is an exhibition by Australian artist, Adrian Feint, which opened earlier this month and runs through until February 14. Titled Cornucopia, the exhibition is the first comprehensive display of works by this significant Australian artist. It brings together paintings, bookplates, prints and drawings sourced from public and private collections to document the artist’s work as a graphic designer and illustrator as well as his mastery of still-life, landscape and surrealist vista. Water drawing no. 1, from Japanese-born Australian artist, Akio Makigawa, is also on display until February 14. A mixed media installation

of works, Water drawing no. 1 comprises several scroll-like drawings, three metal channels filled with water and a single round stone that allude to the physical and spiritual properties of water. On display until January 10 is Buda contemporary Australian silver & metalwork 2009. This is a selection of silver and metalwork by contemporary Australian artists shortlisted for this year’s Buda awards. The final exhibition showing throughout December and January is Gardens illustrated – which presents watercolours, early prints and photographs depicting a variety of gardens, both public and private. The gallery is open from 10am5pm Monday to Friday; 1pm-5pm weekends and public holidays, and is closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Guided tours of the permanent collection are available from 2pm Saturdays. For more information, phone the gallery on 5229 3645.

DEC 29 - Jan 4 2009 Problems with a romantic or professional partner could come to a head. The Lunar Eclipse shines a spotlight on festering flaws, and demands that the two of you face up to the facts about your future. Choose your words wisely. As Rudyard Kipling (born Dec 30) reminds us â&#x20AC;&#x153;Words are the most powerful drugs used by mankindâ&#x20AC;?.

Do you remember the old television show called Family Feud? This New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve, with the Lunar Eclipse stirring up your domestic zone, you may be in for a personal re-run! Relatives are likely to turn into raving lunatics so perhaps it would be better to celebrate with friends, acquaintances and work mates?

New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve and a Lunar Eclipse (in your sign) are a volatile combination for Crabs. Expect to feel more emotionally vulnerable than usual, as you walk a fine line between responding and overreacting. If you are a clever Cancer, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll plan a quiet night and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drink too much.

Your stars favour seeing in the New Year quietly at home, surrounded by family and friends. On the weekend, it may suddenly dawn on you that your work/life balance is way out of kilter. It will take time to get it back in balance again. Be patient. Your motto for 2010 is from JRR Tolkien (born Jan 3) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Little by little, one travels farâ&#x20AC;?.

This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lunar Eclipse could see you morph from a cuddly cow to a raging bull overnight. Rushing around will only make matters worse. Taureans operate best at a steady speed so pace yourself, stay grounded, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let jealousy spoil your New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve celebrations.

Lions will feel uncharacteristically sheepish on New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll liven up as the evening progresses, and could surprise others with your late night funky moves on the dance floor! Expect some amazing dreams this week, as the Lunar Eclipse lights up your dream zone. 2010 is the year to stretch yourself in cosmic new directions.

The combination of tricky Moon/Pluto aspects and a Lunar Eclipse makes for a dramatic New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve as passions run high, and patience runs low. Astro tips for a successful night? Avoid being possessive and playing power games; keep your head down and your emotions under control â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and leave early!

Prepare for a hair-raising New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve, as the Lunar Eclipse charges the party atmosphere with extra drama and emotion. Attached Aquarians â&#x20AC;&#x201C; your partner will be in a volatile mood so watch out! Singles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling strong and independent and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play second fiddle to anyone.

Security issues take centre stage, as the Lunar Eclipse and retro Mercury shake up your money zones. Beware buying expensive things for purely emotional reasons, or lending cash to others. This week, friends and finances are definitely a messy mix! 2010 is the year to expand and nurture your international contacts.

Virgos â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are you sick and tired of being so virtuous? New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve is the night to break out and party like a pro. With three planets (and the Lunar Eclipse) firing up your socializing zones, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to shake out your dancing shoes, shimmy into your favourite party gear, and turn the music up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; loud!

New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve should be a memorable one as the Lunar Eclipse stimulates your sexuality zone. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect time to get hot and heavy with Mr/Ms Sagittarius, while singles will be in the mood to go out on the prowl. 2010 is the year to put your financial future under the microscope. Perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as rosy as you think?

With the Lunar Eclipse activating your â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s zoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be an eventful New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve. Expect temper-tantrums and dummyspits from toddlers, and keep a close eye on tear-away teenagers. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have kids (or grandkids) you may surprise yourself by just how childish you can be!

Â&#x2030;Â&#x160; Â&#x2030;Â&#x160; Â&#x2030;Â&#x160; Â&#x2030;Â&#x160; Â&#x2030;Â&#x160;

FROM THE

WITH TORQUAY BOWLING CLUB

COMPLIMENTS of the season to everyone. We at the club, hope 2009 has given you all you had hoped for and that the coming year will fulfil your dreams and aspirations. As for those of us who are blessed with being allowed use of the beautiful bit of land nestled in Taylor Park, we look back on the past year with an air of relief and resolution. The relief comes from having overcome many problems in our day-today operations. We have seen growth in membership and interest in the game of bowls and we have watched support mount for the efforts to build a sound base for the club to become both a sporting and social entity of our town. From the most recent of social members to veterans of decades at the club, the general air is one of excitement. We know there is a huge amount of work to be done to bring our club up to the standards of the

to this community at minimal cost to anyone outside the bowls group. Countless hundreds have enjoyed these facilities and the unheralded work of these generations. Now the club is keen to move forward, and to share the magnificent legacy those people have left us with the wider community. There are a number of potential stakeholders interested in joining what promises to become a Surf Coast landmark. As has been clearly flagged by the club and by the authorities controlling the Taylor Park area, this is the way we must go, and we want to go. But we go with a strong understanding of the club’s debt to those who gave us this legacy upon which we all want to build. With that in mind, the club board recently passed a motion which says it all… It reads: “The club and its identity are not to be adversely affected through any redevelopment of existing site.”

pacesetters in our region, but we can see the way forward. When we look at the powerhouses of Geelong and regional bowls we see clubs that are financially sound, established in quality clubrooms on secure occupation agreements and places that are attractive to and part of their communities. None of those clubs have what we have. We have a site that could be one of the most famous bowls clubs in Australia, and the world. It could be a tourist asset. To stand on a pleasant sunny day and watch the swells roll across Zeally Bay, with the Port Phillip Heads and Point Lonsdale lighthouse shimmering in the distance, is truly mesmerising. What the club, and the town, now needs is to convert this amazing potential asset into a bricks-and-mortar facility that will do true justice to the position. For nine decades volunteers at the club have worked to provide a recreation facility

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB WITH Christmas over itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now time to get out the presents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; new clubs, new balls and other golfing paraphernalia â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and onto the course to attempt some serious damage to that handicap. The course is in perfect condition and the only thing youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to do is book early.

BY MARGOT SMITH

Competition Results The good scores started before Christmas with the medley field on Wednesday. Gloria Hodgkison paced herself in the warm, muggy conditions changing groups and letting others through, but it certainly helped her, posting a score of 2 up winning the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event.

EARLIER this month we reported that four of our junior players were representing the club at the final of the Stuart Appleby Club Teams Championships played at Yarra Yarra. Eighteen teams participated. Congratulations to Tyson Gill, Jai Whittington, Alex Harvey and Jarrod McNaughton who despite the oppressive heat finished a creditable third. Well done to the boys. Members will have noticed by now how well the transfer of the golf operations matters into the Pro Shop has taken. Led by recently appointed pro, Nathan Stubbs, the team is working well.

for the men was Greg Davis with 5 up winning A grade. Jarryd McGuane won B grade with 4 up and Terry Knapp won C grade with 3 up. NTPs were Sandy Talbot, Gloria, Wayne Pipe and Greg Davis. Scores for Saturday were either a result of a little extra weight behind the swing or new presents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you had to pull out your best for a prize. Anne Mangan was the best for the women with 6 up, followed closely by Sandy Favre with 5 up. For the men, Paul Badderley had the score of the day with 8 up winning B grade, and James Gowans and Brent Matthews won A grade and C grade respectively with 4 up. Spare a thought for Phillips Gardiner who had to settle for just a ball down the line with his 7 up in B grade. Brett Balloch started

his round with an eagle on the 1st and the NTPs were Chris Duffield on the 3rd and 13th, Brett on the 6th and James on the 16th. Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s results were even better with seven players having scores of 40 or better. Vida Brenner won div 1 for the women with 40 points, with Debbie Gill not far behind on 38 points. Marion Atherden won div 2 with 34 points and Chris Branch won div 3 with 36 points. For the men Greg Davis had his second win for the week with 40 points in A grade, John McGibbony won B grade with 42 points and Colin Barrow on C grade with 44 points. Rodger Paul scored the second eagle for the week on the 8th this time and the NTPs were Will Kendall, Chris Branch, Chris Lockwood and Peter Kendall.

Around the clubhouse Bookings are still open for the New Years Eve dinner dance. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for a relaxed night in your Hawaiian shirt or your grass skirt and bikini then come along for a three course meal and the band. We have juniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; clinics starting in January. All the details are available from Kane in the pro shop. Lastly if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re reading this and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a member now could be the best time for you to join. The special deal at the moment is 15 months for 12 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or at least it was at the start of December, so it is now 14 months for 12. Still great value, so contact the office if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re keen.

score cards are now handled from the Pro Shop. Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game was stableford. The CCR was 68. Winner in div 1 was Greg Smith with 44 points from Dennis Abbey 41. Ian Lawson, 40, won div 2 on count back from Bruce Dyer. In div 3 Stan Baker also won on count back with 40 from Michael Lunney. The score of the day was in div 4. David Brown with 48 beat Fred Pyke 43. NTPs went to Joe Karamatic, Max Simpson and Fred Allen. Ross Duff took out the jackpot prize on the 17th. Well done to Glenn Mifsud for his Albatross on the 18th. On Boxing Day a good field decided to work off their Christmas pudding by playing stroke. Conditions were fine but blustery. CCR was 70. Div 1 winner was Trevor Doolan who conquered the course with an excellent net 61. R/up was Noel

Jeffery. Mark Langlands with 62 won div 2 with Peter Kaan r/up on 66. In div 3 Peter Carey 70 won from Darryl Hilton 71. Trent Fischer took out div 4 with 71 on c/b from Rob Harding. NTPs went to Terry Lee, Robert Speakman and Doug Hutchison. Jackpot winner was Rick McNamara.

Bookings are essential and can be made at the office. Starting in early February, we will be having the nine hole twilight competition on Thursday nights. We are calling for teams of five with players seeded in their teams based on individual handicap contact Mike Brady for details.

NTPs went to Cheryl Brunt and Dawn Sherlock from Benalla GC. A quick glance at the booking page on the web shows the course is going to be very busy over the next few weeks.

Most good tackle stores have a petition that is to be presented in parliament to try and get Peter Garrett to reverse his decision. If you feel strongly on this I suggest you go to your local tackle store and ask them if they have the petition. By signing this you can help send a message that there is no reason â&#x20AC;&#x201C; scientific or otherwise â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in Australia at this time for a ban of this type to be put in place. Now for the photos. This year we had a lot of new photos and a lot of people who have caught fish of varying types. The one common denominator was no matter what fish they caught, they were all excited and happy with what they had caught.

CHRISTMAS has now been and gone and many will have received presents revolving around fishing. So now is the time to get out and wet that new rod and try out your new gear and catch some nice fish while you can! This week I am mainly going to show you photos of some of the really nice fish that have been caught on the Surf Coast and some of the good catches we have had throughout the year. But one update first. As you should be aware by now, the proposed banning of fishing for mako sharks will take place on the January 19 and many anglers are upset by this.
