PEACE DEAL? PHOTO: ELEANOR WOODS

Bunnings submits amended plans as local business leaders prepare to meet this week

BY NATHAN HALE BUNNINGS has taken the first step towards brokering a peace deal with Torquay residents. The hardware and retail giant has lodged amended plans with the Surf Coast Shire in regard to its planned superstore in the West Coast Business Park. Bunnings caused a storm of controversy with local residents and business after it was given the okay to erect signage four times the size allowed under the business park’s planning permits. As part of the conditions of building in the park, companies are not permitted to erect signage bigger than 10 square metres. Bunnings, however, indicated it wanted four to five signs 40 to 50sqm each, complete with its logo.

Surf Forecast

The latest plans, however, show a decrease in the size of the superstore and a decrease in the size of the proposed signage. The revised plans include: • Reducing the overall height of the building by 30 per cent • Reducing the size of signage • Reducing the overall sales area • Modifying the awning over the nursery area. Surf Coast Shire councillor, Rose Hodge, who was one of two councillors – the other being Simon Northeast – who voted against supporting the initial Bunnings signage decision, said she welcomed the change in Bunnings’ plans. “I always welcome when people listen to the community and can change their plans,”

Hodge said. “So congratulations to Bunnings for having the flexibility to change their plans and I thank them for listening to the community. “However, I am yet to see the plans and I am sure there will be other things we need to look at still.” To assist in the planning process, the plans are on display at www.surfcoast.vic.gov.au or at the Planning Counter at Council’s Grossmans Road service centre until Friday, August 6. Members of the public are free to view the plans and make further comments and submissions on the revised plans until the August 6 deadline. Bunnings submitted the revised plans in response to community comment on its proposed development.

As a result of the submission of revised plans, council will seek to consider the initial application and revised plans at its monthly meeting on Wednesday, August 25. All current objections to the application remain in effect unless objectors choose to withdraw them. Council welcomes comments on the revised plans before Friday, August 6, where comments can be sent to info@surfcoast.vic.gov.au before 5pm on that date. Meanwhile, a meeting for local businesses will be held tomorrow night in Torquay to further discuss the impact of Bunnings on Torquay. The meeting – to be held at Jade Chinese Restaurant in Gilbert Street at 6pm – is open to all businesses owners.

You may have noticed this week temporary fencing and excavation works around the Surf Coast Highway at the Surf Coast Community and Civic Precinct site. Barwon Water has started water supply works in the area with earthmoving equipment placing pipes that will not only bring water to the precinct, but improve water supply services to the North Torquay area. Temporary fencing has also been erected around a small section of the site where work will begin shortly on preparing the area for construction. One of the first jobs in the fenced off area will be to remove the environmental weed vegetation. This roadside vegetation mostly consists of environmental weeds like Blackberry, Radiata Pine and Coast Tea Tree. This will be replaced as part of the precinct planting plan with locally indigenous species. This will significantly enhance this section of the entrance to Torquay. Following this, work will begin on delivering the first stage of the precinct’s recreation facilities. This phase of the project is on schedule to be complete in March 2011. You can find out more about the Community and Civic Precinct as construction ramps up at www.surfcoast.vic.gov.au/ccp.htm

Bunnings submits revised plans

Council recently received a set of revised plans from Bunnings for its proposal to build a store in Torquay’s West Coast Business Park. The revised plans have been submitted in response to community comment on its initial proposal. To assist in the planning process, the plans are on display at www.surfcoast.vic.gov.au or at the planning counter at council’s Grossmans Road service centre until Friday, August 6.

Easy steps to responsible pet ownership

With Surf Coast Shire having one of Victoria’s highest rates of dog ownership, there is a heightened need for all of us to be responsible pet owners. You can help by taking four simple steps: • Observe dog restrictions including on-leash and off-leash areas • Clean up after your dog with POOch pouches • Be careful of where your dog goes around beaches • Always keep your dog under effective control and responsive to commands – at home and in public. Be aware of local laws and dog restrictions. If you’re in doubt, make sure you check council’s dog restriction maps which can be downloaded from www.surfcoast.vic.gov.au under Quick Links; or obtained from council’s Grossmans Road Service Centre.

Your council online

This week, council is launching its new internet homepage. The site at www.surfcoast.vic.gov. au has been the culmination of six months’ development and will provide a better way for you to interact with your council. The 2010/11 budget also includes resources to improve council’s web presence and ensure the website becomes an even better option for people

looking to find out about council matters or access their council. Why not log on and have a look?

Graffiti removal kits still available

In 2009, council received funding through the Victorian Government’s Graffiti Cleanup to provide a number of free graffiti removal kits to residents, organisations, traders and organisations. The kits are effective on a range of surfaces. One kit works on painted walls, doors, fences, gates, signs, posts, perspex and plastics; while another is made for bare brick, masonry and stone. Chemicals used can be easily and safely disposed of by following the enclosed instructions. Kits are still available, so if you believe your organisation could benefit, contact council on 5261 0600.

An arty July Christmas

It was a pleasure last weekend to get into the pantomime spirit at the Lorne Arts Christmas In July celebration at the Lorne Bowls Club. Talented local tenor Tim Edwards wowed the crowd and warmed us all with his skill; while the improvised pantomime acts were also a lot of fun. The evening was a lot of fun and another reminder of the great contributions our talented local arts groups and artists make to our Surf Coast community. Congratulations to Lorne Arts on this great event and its other activities.

Warm regards,

Beach battle continues BY NATHAN HALE JAN JUC’S Beach Hotel was the subject of a concerted attack last week which left director Rohan Pertzel stunned. A sign – which read ‘No Pokies for Jan Juc’ and had the image of a skeleton playing a poker machine – was erected near the bistro entrance to the popular hotel. The following evening, the sign had obscene graffiti scrawled across it – actions which Pertzel said dismayed and disappointed him. The actions stem from the ongoing dispute between the hotel – which is looking to develop and extend, including the addition of poker machines. This move has met with strong disapproval from a concerned group of residents. “I think it is appalling that someone would stoop to those levels,� Pertzel said. “We are going through the process the best we can and following the rules that we have to – so to have someone write that across the sign in front of our bistro when you have families walking past is pretty poor. “Some people say they are doing it for the community but what sort of message does that sort of graffiti give the community?� Following concerns on the size of the redevelopment, the hotel has moved to address these by re-submitting plans to VCAT and council. Pertzel said the new plans address concerns in regard to height, with the building now just one and a half levels instead of the original three. This has meant there will be just one function room instead of two and no accommodation. The hotel will go to the gambling commission on August 20 to see if it will be granted the 30 poker machines, while the VCAT hearing to address the redevelopment has been set down for November.

Families feel the squeeze TORQUAY families are being forced to battle a crippling shortage of houses to let and rising rents, according to Shadow Minister for Housing, Wendy Lovell. Speaking last week, Lovell said Torquay was a hot spot for incredibly low availability of private rental properties. She said the situation was so bad that desperate families were bidding for rental properties, with many prospective renters forced into auction situations and paying far more than the advertised rental price just to secure a home. Lovell also pointed to the March Quarter 2010 Rental Report, which shows that rents for homes in Torquay continue to rise. The report showed that the median rent for a one bedroom flat is now $193, up 5.48 percent on last year, while the median rent for a fourbedroom house is now $430, up 11.69 percent on last year. Along the Surf Coast, 83 percent of private rental homes are unaffordable for low income families. “Embattled Housing Minister Richard Wynne’s long term failure to deliver effective affordable housing strategies means vulnerable families are being squeezed out of the private rental market,� Lovell said.

Beach Hotel directors, Stuart Costa, Rohan Pertzel and Anthony Closter, are hoping revised plans will allow the redevelopment to go ahead.

BY ELEANOR WOODS RECENT changes to the Surf Coast’s Regional Library Service have provoked concern from residents of small towns. Mobile services have been re-jigged and a new Community Library Service was launched this week, which includes “a more tailored approach�, according to the chief executive officer of Geelong Regional Library Corporation, Patti Manolis. Mobile library service hours have been altered in Aireys Inlet, Anglesea, Deans Marsh, Lorne, Mount Duneed and Winchelsea. Moriac has lost its weekly visit from the Surf Coast Mobile Library Truck altogether, replaced by a fortnightly visit from the new service; a smaller van. Manolis said changes had been made after extensive review in an attempt to better services. “We found there were inequities of service and we are trying to balance that out,� she said. “Our aim is to increase access to services to all members of the community and we are implementing some new systems to do that.� Concerned parent, Moriac Pre-School’s Sharon Noble pleaded to keep the town’s weekly visit from the mobile library truck. “Returning the mobile library unit will make children familiar with public library service facilities

Lorne mother, Jenny McMenomy, is relieved the town will keep its weekly visit from the Surf Coast Mobile Library Truck.

and they will be more likely to use libraries when they are adults,� Noble said. Lorne mother, Jenny McMenomy, agrees that having an interactive library is crucial, saying kids thrive on the experience of browsing and selecting their reading material. McMenomy was worried the Lorne mobile truck visit would be cut and was relieved to learn

the service would stay on in the town, albeit with lessened hours. “We are sick of losing these vital community services. A library is essential. It is our window to the world,� she said. “I am so relieved the service will stay on during out of school hours. I take my daughter there to browse and select her own books.�

Library changes spark concern

SURF Coast residents who commute by train to Melbourne have had the start to their working day made a lot easier with 300 new car park spaces opened at Marshall station. Member for South Barwon, Michael Crutchfield, said the improvements were great news for local commuters who use local bus services and the rail network to get to their destination. “Initiatives such as this are helping us deliver

on our aim to ensure Victorians spend less time commuting and more time with their families,� he said. Crutchfield said the car park works at Marshall Station were carried out by VicTrack, with other improvements including additional disabled car spaces, as well as upgrades to lighting, CCTV security, landscaping and upgraded pedestrian walkways.

“Another critical improvement is the addition of a new secure cage for 30 bikes,� he said. “The Parkiteer cages are a fantastic addition to the public transport network for people who want to access the rail network by bike and enjoy secure, free, undercover bike parking.� Cyclists wanting to use the cage can register at www.parkiteer.com.au

Forrest’s towering concerns

05

BY ELEANOR WOODS THE BATTLE continues between ColacOtway Shire and Towers Out Of Town (TOOT) protesters about whether or not to erect a 45-metre telecommunications tower in the heart of Forrest. Optus was given the okay to construct the tower on council land – just a stone’s throw from the main road – but TOOT is standing its ground. This was evident in a public rally outside ColacOtway Shire offices on Friday. Council chief executive officer, Rob Small, said residents were welcome to protest a mobile phone tower proposed for their town but said council was not in a position to hasten Optus’ response to community concerns. “We are actively working on a solution, and the protest group is well aware of this,” Small said. TOOT’s Gillian Brew, who runs the Neighbourhood Community House, said only a handful of residents had received notification of the plans to erect the tower and no community consultation was undertaken. TOOT began picketing on June 28 on the corner of Blundy Street and the main road, near the proposed tower site – and they haven’t left yet. “We are not opposed to a tower. We need one. We just don’t want it smack bang in the centre of town,” Brew said. “Our concern is that this is a potential health risk to our community as well as having this huge tower dominating our skyline. “We love it here. We love the fresh air off the ocean and the Otways and we don’t want a 15-storey tower in the centre of our town.” TOOT met with the council and Optus, and rejected the company’s offer to reduce the tower to 35 metres, which would also reduce its reception coverage. Many families confirmed they would leave Forrest if the tower went ahead at the proposed site. “We only have 170 people in town. If too many families leave we won’t have enough children to

keep the school and then that will go. If the tower goes up here it will hurt this town in so many ways,” Brew said. The group’s Pete Mitchell said TOOT had investigated other more suitable sites, including the Barwon Water Reservoir, and spoken to Optus and Telstra about sharing one tower, which is in line with the Code of Practice for Telecommunications in Victoria to reduce duplication of infrastructure in small towns. Work on the tower is currently at a standstill after the picket was recognised by the Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union, Electrical Trades Union and Geelong Trades Hall Council.

Roots and Loops for TOOT TOOT is holding a benefit concert this Saturday to raise awareness for Towers out of Town. Roots and Loops for TOOT will feature a host of musicians, bands and entertainment over several stages at the Forrest Public Hall from 10am until 12pm. To find out more or to get involved, contact TOOT’s spokesperson, Teresa Price, on 5236 6193.

A new era of learning BY LAURA DUKE THE U3A – University of the Third Age – is coming to the Surf Coast and active retirees are invited to become a part of it. The university, which began in France in 1972 and has been in Australia for more than two decades, boasts 91 ‘campuses’ throughout the state, with more than 24,000 members. Wayne Chaffey, who is behind the push to start the university on the Surf Coast, has helped to organise a information meeting this Thursday at the Anglesea Senior Citizen’s rooms starting at 1.30pm. Chaffey encouraged all retirees to attend the free session. The meeting will elect a managing committee, with guest speakers including Harry

Dobson, development officer, U3A Network Victoria, and Graeme Allen, president of the Geelong U3A. “What we’re trying to do in the Surf Coast is organise an overriding group that caters for the whole area, including places like Deans Marsh and Anglesea,� Chaffey said. Activities and courses depend on what people want to learn and who is willing to teach, and leaders are usually volunteers who have a desire to impart their skills and knowledge on others. There are no entry requirements or exams to become a part of a U3A and the cost usually only consists of an annual membership fee, as courses are generally run from community houses or similar community locations.

07

Tim Robinson and Wayne Chaffey are calling on local retirees to join the university.

For more information on U3A, phone Wayne Chaffey on 0430 482 302 or visit www.vicnet.net. au/~u3avic/

Communities that care BY ELEANOR WOODS

Surf Coast Shire Mayor, Libby Coker, congratulates home care worker, Carol Allardyce, who was one of nine people recognised for their contribution to the community.

KEY COMMUNITY members were recognised by the Surf Coast Shire last Thursday for their ongoing commitment to improving the lives of others. Surf Coast Shire chief executive officer, Mark Davies, presented nine community workers with certificates of recognition, acknowledging a combined total of 135 years of service. One of the workers recognised was Carol Allardyce of Winchelsea. Allardyce has spent 25 years working in home care for the Barrabool and then Surf Coast shires, and has a strong connection with the people of Anglesea.

“My job began as cleaning and helping out and things just grew from there,� she said. Today, her duties include personal care, shopping, assisting and monitoring people with medication, respite care, cooking and working with people with disabilities. Allardyce admits the work can be “full on� but says it is “extremely rewarding�. “I have become extremely close to the people that I work with,� she said. “My whole aim is to help keep these people happy and in their own homes,� she said. “They come to really trust me and I know what I do is really important to them. To be recognised for that is really important to me.�

Power New pastor brings passion upgrade on track BY ELEANOR WOODS

THE POWER upgrade in the southern section of Torquay Foreshore Caravan Park continues to move full steam ahead with the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee last week reporting that the first group of caravans and annexes belonging to 12-month permit holders had been reinstated onsite. “This represents the completion of all works in that particular area. The vans had been temporarily relocated at the start of May to enable the works to safely proceed,” explained chief executive officer, Richard Davies. “This week sees the final group of vans and annexes being temporarily relocated from a fairly large area and works getting under way in this area. As such, the power upgrade is moving at a cracking pace and is on track to be completed on time and within budget. “By the time Powercor re-connects the power in October, we will have installed brand new power and water supply systems to service some 300 camp sites, four amenity blocks and cabin neighbourhoods in the park’s southern section,” Davies said. Davies said the works currently under way represent part of the committee’s commitment to inject some $1million this year into improving the caravan park. The power upgrade project also received a $750,000 grant from the State Government in December 2009.

LORNE’S newly appointed church pastor is breathing new life into the town. Andy Davies is passionate about embracing the community and reaching out to people of all ages. “I’d love to see this church full,” he said. Davies and his wife, Sarah, and their young son, Josiah, moved to Lorne and the St Cuthbert’s Uniting Church from Geelong, where the family was involved with Uniting Church and Assemblies of God, both in Grovedale. “I’ve come to Lorne a lot over the years to help out with Schoolies but I’m really pleased to be able to come here fulltime,” he said. The 30-year-old pastor hoped to bring a youthful, fresh approach to embracing the community spirit of people of all ages. “I bring fresh eyes,” he said. “The sad truth is lots of our members are over 80. We want to encourage the next generations to come and ask questions and search for, and find, God.” Davies has a musical streak and is using his energy to reach out to students at Lorne P-12 as part of his community chaplain role. “I just want to provide support and help out the community in any way I can,” he said. Davies also pays visits to the elderly at the Lorne Hospital. The youthful and energetic new pastor was raised a church-goer but said his strong spiritual connection emerged in his teens. “I had always really enjoyed church but when I was about 16 and started figuring out things for myself I starting doing my own bible study and really getting into God,” he said. “To me church is about connecting with other people who are passionate about God and we can chat together and organise events and learn about God.”

Andy Davies is Lorne’s new fulltime pastor and community chaplain. He is passionate about breathing new life into the community spirit.

Davies is close to receiving his Graduate Diploma of Ministry from the Harvest Bible College. He also received a Bachelor of Biological Science from Deakin University. “I purposely chose papers like evolution to learn

Police push begins THE LARGEST police recruitment drive in Victoria’s history began last week with a campaign encouraging people from all backgrounds to consider a career as a police officer. At the Police Academy, Premier John Brumby, police minister Bob Cameron and Victoria Police chief commissioner Simon Overland unveiled a $6million campaign to attract a record 1,700 recruits over the next five years. Brumby said the Extraordinary Career campaign was the first stage of a $673million State Government commitment to put an extra 1,966 frontline police on the beat. “This campaign will help attract a range of recruits to a career in policing, putting more officers on the front-line and boosting police efforts to make Victoria even safer,” Brumby said. “This record recruitment will mean that starting later this year, there will be a graduation at the Police Academy every fortnight for the next four years.” Brumby said the recruitment campaign was an important part of a record $2billion Victoria Police budget to help make the state’s streets and communities even safer. “This recruitment campaign is just one of the many ways our government is supporting Victoria Police as they work to reduce crime,” Brumby said. “While Victoria is the safest state in Australia, we want to drive down crime even further and by the end of this year we will have increased the net number of police by almost 2,000 since 1999.”

A large crowd enjoyed a night of bubbly, nibbles and pampering as part of Endota Spa Torquay’s Ladies Night Out last week. Nearly 100 ladies gathered to enjoy hand and neck massages and to take a sneak peak at the latest products on offer. Making the most of the pampering were (above from left) Robynne and Hannah Dunlop, and Tracy Gilligan (top), who enjoyed the attention from Alexis Beulke. Photos: PETER MARSHALL

Local fire brigade members honoured

STATE Member for South Barwon, Michael Crutchfield, has warned local residents to watch out for scams, releasing details of the top scams to hit the Surf Coast over the past year. Crutchfield said scams were designed to trick people into giving away money or personal information and urged people to guard against fraud by protecting their privacy and financial details. The top scams reported along the Surf Coast during the last financial year were: • Get Rich Quick Schemes • On-line Fraud • Bogus Employment Schemes • Unauthorised Advertising (Blowers) • Unsolicited Mail, Telefraud & Mail Fraud. Crutchfield said local residents needed to be aware of the scams so they could protect themselves from being conned out of their hard-earned money or their personal details. “The government is standing up for Victorians by making sure they know there are risks when communicating, buying and banking online and giving them the support and advice they need to protect themselves,” he said. “There are many different types of scam and con artists can try and contact you by mail, email, telephone, over the Internet and door-to-door. Anyone can be scammed. “Scammers are getting more sophisticated in their approach to conning you out of your money and personal information, using email and other forms of technology to get to you. “Scammers are constantly thinking up new ways to re-invent old scams to ensure their dodgy offers appear official and legitimate. “But don’t be fooled. Always remember, if an offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” Crutchfield said there are a few simple steps local residents could take to protect themselves from this kind of scam: • Hang up on telemarketers asking for up-front fees for large cash prizes • Don’t respond immediately to any unsolicited offers or deals. Stop and take time to check they are genuine • Ignore letters or emails saying you have won large cash prizes • Never provide personal details or transfer money to a company or person you do not know and trust Consumer Affairs Victoria runs a ‘dob in a scam’ service.

BY JOHN MONAGLE SIX MEMBERS of the Torquay Fire Brigade were presented with CFA service awards at the brigade’s annual dinner last week. CFA Catchment Officer for Coastal Group, Gerry Verdoorn, said that the awards acknowledged the outstanding commitment of each recipient and that they had made a significant contribution to the brigade, their community and the CFA. He added that the all members of the Torquay Fire Brigade were delighted to see their colleagues’ hard work and dedication rewarded. Mick Helps was rewarded with a life membership of the Brigade for his loyalty and commitment to the CFA. The award recipients were: Mark Tomkins – 20-Year Service Award Mick Helps – Life Member of the Torquay Fire Brigade Kevin Keegan – 25-Year Service Award David Menzel – 20-Year Service Award Geoff Cairns – 30-35-Year Service Award Bill McKenzie – 40-Year Service Award. The Fire Service Star is used by the CFA for dress uniform headwear, and on Long Service and Outstanding Service Badges. The eight-pointed star is the Cross of Saint John. It originated in the Maltese Cross, the emblem on the Knights of Malta, and was used by the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem at the time of the crusades. The points or tenets were said to represent the knightly virtues of tact, loyalty, dexterity, observation, sympathy, explicitness, gallantry and perseverance. Since these represent the qualities required of a firefighter, the star has been chosen for the insignia of the CFA.

Income Protection Insurance

ARE YOU COVERED?? Income protection insurance often falls into the Australian “she’ll be right” category along with many other types of insurance. Most people do not think twice about insuring their car, house and contents, but sometimes hesitate about insuring their most important asset – the ability to earn a living. Consider this, the average Australian could earn around $2,500,000 in their lifetime, much more than the value of the average home, this is the value of income protection. Sometimes life can be unpredictable, leaving us in situations that we did not foresee and hence did not plan for. The ability to work and make money is not something that should be taken for granted, this is when income protection cover can give you and your family peace of mind. Income protection can pay up

to 75% of your income with many optional benefits, this is normally paid monthly and some providers even offer the option to take a lump sum up front. In addition to this, the cost of the premium is usually tax deductible. Income protection allows you to continue to receive an income when you are sick or injured and unable to perform your normal duties. It is estimated that 1 in 3 Australians will be off work due to injury or illness for a period of 3 months or more during their working life. This helps illustrate the importance of income protection in providing living expenses, pay the mortgage and bills during this time until you are well enough to return to work. In extreme cases, it will even pay you a monthly benefit until age 65 if required.

Since each of us face different risks it makes sense to talk to an adviser to help you find the income protection policy that suits your specific needs. The right amount of income protection insurance will give you and your family peace of mind, and knowledge the bills and mortgage will be paid should you become injured or ill.

Stop searching! ... Your new career, starts here!

AUSTRALIAN house prices took out another international award this week with The Economist releasing the results of its latest study that compares current price-to-rent ratios to their long-term average. Unsurprisingly, of the 20 countries studied, Australia came in as number one, followed by Hong Kong, Spain, Sweden, France, and Great Britain. There are clear signs, however, that the real estate market is turning. Figures released this week show mortgages for people buying new houses fell by 0.7 per cent in May and are now down 20 per cent over the past six months. At the same time, the supply of houses coming onto the market has risen sharply over the last two months in all capital cities. Louis Christopher, of property group SQM Research, opined: “It is worrying for listings to increase so rapidly during the winter period when you normally expect a quiet period. “It suggests that something

more than just the normal cyclical changes in the market is going on.” What is slipping under the radar, however, are concerns about Australia’s employment. These were highlighted in the OECD’s annual employment outlook which showed that Australia’s unemployment is the eighth lowest of the 27 OECD countries, but that Australia’s employment ranks only twentieth as far as prime-age workers are concerned. Australia, it says, has “a large pool of under-employed workers” with 25 per cent of those with jobs working part-time and 21 per cent of people of prime-working age (25-54) having no job at all. The OECD report also shows that more than 90 per cent of the reduction in total hours worked in Australia in the two years to the end of 2009 was due to declining working hours rather than a reduction in employment. This compares with just 50 per cent on average in previous downturns.

Letters to the Editor may be submitted to the Surf Coast Times and Bellarine Times by writing to P.O. Box 714, Torquay, Vic, 3228 or email: editor@surfcoasttimes.com.au or fax: 5264 8413.

Dear Editor, I knew about the telecommunication tower and that it was going on the Colac Otway Shire block in Forrest – and I was waiting for a letter of notification. I had been onto the shire about moving rubbish from next to my fence because we were getting ready for the fire season, yet I heard nothing back. However, one day there was a lot of activity in the block and I thought “at last they are cleaning it up”. I walked to the back of my block and was very shocked to find this great hole the size of a swimming pool close to my side fence. I rang the shire and finally got to speak to someone about it. I said: “I have only one question – where is my letter?” The lady went through the files and said that the names and addresses were sent to Optus for them to notify those on the list. Interestingly, at the Forrest public meeting with the shire recently, shire chief executive officer, Rob Small, admitted that he had opened the file that day to discover that it was actually council who had sent the notifications, not Optus! I am still waiting for my letter. My husband and I saved very hard for when we retired so we could buy a house in the country and this happened 25 years ago. I have been a widow for the last 10 years. But I will fight to keep our dream.

Time to be honest and upfront Dear Editor, It is time to for the Surf Coast Shire to be honest and explain to the ratepayers in “every day” language that ratepayers can understand. Mr Davies, CEO Surf Coast, writes this is all well within State Government guidelines’ of 56% annual rate revenue falling to 41% by 2013-2014. In my opinion, quoting a record expense of $29.2million to capitol works is a red herring. Of more importance is how the record expense is being financed. Budget papers show that a run down of

current assets due to the planned use of cash reserves is the secret to success. To run down cash reserves from $10million to $1.1million within two years is hardly good financial management. What will happen next year and how will this cash be replenished? I have very little faith in the State Government guidelines and estimates, for example, the MYKI project. If MYKI was a private business concern the whole project would be wound up by the courts. The cost predictions’ and design of building the Community and Civic Precinct will have to have greater accuracy and scrutiny than the recent debacle of the new toilet precinct in the IGA car park. I hope and pray that more thought and detail is taken over the forward planning of the new Community and Civic Precinct than this toilet project. One does wonder who “messed” up this project and once more ratepayers’ money is down the drain – or toilet – as is this case. The buck has to stop on someone’s desk, be named and be accountable. It is ratepayers’ money. If the small size of the toilet block debacle is any indication of the efficiency of council, we should not be going ahead with something the size of the Community and Civic Project until ratepayers’ can be assured council can guarantee we will get value for our money and investment. I am a retiree who has lived in Torquay for nearly 10 years and who does not need to have shock announcements come out of the left field that may happen in the future. Extra expenses created by poor planning similar to what has happened repeatedly in the last 10 years with little public debate, then swept under the carpet as in the past. I am not affiliated to any faction or political party. I just want know what is happening as a private tax and rate payer and not be given ‘El Toro Poo Poo’ as answers. John R Walsh Torquay

A sad state of affairs Dear Editor, A week ago I attended a meeting with Parks Vic on site at the wharves about the supposed reconstruction later this year of the last remaining section of Fishermans Wharf Queenscliff. In reality it is the destruction of the last remaining

historical remnants of the fishing and boat building culture of the town. Does anybody else care that another great mistake is about to occur in our township? We will not be Classic Queenscliff, but another step towards a Plastic Classic Queenscliff. This makes me feel very sad. Deb Brearley Point Lonsdale

Attention all south Grovedale residents Dear Editor, Welcome to the real world of Labor politics ... there is no consultation anywhere, anytime, with anyone, except a chosen few to help their agenda. They want the road, so you’ll have the road! This is government for the government! Just look at the waste of money on things like Myki, the smart meters and Mr Madden’s takeover of planning in Geelong, not to mention the Windsor Hotel sham consultation. Michael Crutchfield’s rant against residents at Torquay over the secondary school is just another chapter of this shabby Labor government’s nonconsultation. Just look at the misery caused by windfarms: devastating impact on communities. Geothermal power: so dangerous – South Australia’s geothermal plant at Innamincka blew up and they had to bring experts from the US to cap it. They want to put 12 in a thriving community at Gherang and – surprise – residents were never consulted. Come on, Mr Batchelor, if windfarms and geothermal powerstations are so good, put them in your neighbourhood. Come on, Mr Batchelor, lead by example. Come on Mr Premier, I expect to see them on your own farm at Bendigo. Come on, Mr Brumby, lead by example. Residents of south Grovedale, do what the Labor Party’s hero (no idea why) Gough Whitlam said: “maintain the rage” and vote this arrogant, nonconsulting government out of office. Remember, it’s government of the people, by the people, FOR the people! Marlene Hart Gherang

Records are meant to be broken

Trent Ludlow and Marius Tekin have been kept busy in recent months with some outstanding results.

surfcoasttimes.com.au

PROPERTY prices on the Bellarine and along the Surf Coast continue to produce strong results – and one town that is proving a hot spot is Anglesea. Defying the notion that property sales ease during winter, Hayden Real Estate Anglesea agents Marius Tekin and Trent Ludlow have produced two sales above the $2million mark in the town. “We have had the most successful June for five years, property listings are at a premium with buyers seeking our advice to ensure they secure a home in time for the September and Christmas school holidays,” Tekin said. “There is no doubt the Geelong Ring Road and Anglesea Road upgrades are fueling the increase in property demand with buyers wanting to acquire permanent and holiday homes in Anglesea. “Anglesea is arguably becoming the Surf Coast’s hot spot.”

Temporary home for health centre THE CITY of Greater Geelong has approved the temporary relocation of the Grovedale Maternal and Child Health Centre. CoGG councillor, Andy Richards, who represents Buckley Ward and holds the portfolio for infrastructure, said the temporary relocation would take place as soon as conversion of the Occasional Care site adjoining Leisurelink in Reynolds Road, Belmont, is complete. Richards said that as a result of recent concerns regarding the safety of staff and families, council had accepted recommendations to close the East Belmont MCH Centre and investigate options for the future of the Grovedale Centre. He said the Grovedale MCH was more than 30 years old, located at the end of a cul-de-sac, at the back of the local supermarket and across the road from a local primary school. Richards said safety concerns had been expressed

because of the isolation of the site, and because of large vehicles servicing the adjoining supermarket, blocking access to Grovedale MCH and posing a potential risk to families and young children. “During school holidays the isolation factor of this MCH is even more of a concern,� Richards said. Councillor Kylie Fisher, who holds the portfolio for Community Development, said Council’s Maternal and Child Health (MCH) service operates from 22 sites across the municipality. “During the 2008-2009 financial year almost 9,000 infants and children accessed the service and approximately 29,000 face-to-face consultations were conducted,� she said. “The MCH consultations are effectively the entry point to a whole range of family services provided by council.�

Fisher said that as the result of new research, MCH practices had been revised and modified to respond to the needs of families in the 21st Century. “Revised Maternal and Child Health Programme standards were released by the State Government in October 2009, and include a number of criteria dealing with the environment from which the service is delivered,� she said. “While the majority of MCH centre staff feel safe at work, a number of staff nurses have indicated that at some times during the working day – particularly in the mornings and the evenings – they can feel apprehensive if they are on their own.� Fisher said a range of risk minimisation strategies were consistently implemented by staff, including security measures such as the use of surveillance equipment in visiting areas. “Investigations are ongoing into additional ways of ensuring safety at these centres, she said.

Record funding for Barwon Health BARWON Health’s funding has increased by 151.5 per cent since the State Government came into office, Health Minister Daniel Andrews announced last week. During a visit to Geelong Hospital, Andrews said the funding boost was part of the government’s record investment in health services throughout the state – a 153 per cent increase in the acute health budget since 1999-00. Barwon Health’s funding is up by $22.5million,

or 8.5 per cent, on last year. Andrews said this year’s funding of $287.5million was $114.3million more than what Barwon Health was given in 1999. “The government is committed to delivering quality health services for all Victorians and that’s why we are announcing a significant increase in funding to Barwon Health,� Andrews said. “Record funding means more patients in the Barwon and South West region receive care more quickly, whether it’s emergency

procedures, elective surgery or other vital health services.� Andrews said Victoria’s hospitals would receive a combined $6.4billion in recurrent acute funding – up by $443million on the previous year. “The funding boost will enable hospitals across Victoria to treat 9,000 elective surgery patients more quickly, 50,000 extra emergency patients and 32,000 more outpatient appointments,� he said.

A call to arms TIME is running out for local sporting clubs to join the 374 Victorian clubs already registered for Cancer Council Victoria’s Call To Arms to help tackle cancer in men. Cancer Council Victoria spokesperson, Irene Manitta, said compared to women, Australian men are more likely to be diagnosed with cancer and are more likely to die from the disease. With these figures in mind, Cancer Council Victoria is urging all sporting teams and clubs to register and get behind the event. Call To Arms is a community-sporting event, which asks players of all ages and all codes to register and get behind the cause by wearing a yellow armband during any match throughout July and August. “The statistics are scary – we all know someone who has been affected by cancer – but there are things we can do to change them,� Manitta said. “By getting your team involved by wearing a yellow armband and raising funds, we can help save men’s lives.� Cancer Council is aiming to recruit 2,500 clubs nationwide and has set a fundraising target of $1million this year. All money raised will fund Cancer Council’s important cancer research, prevention and support programmes for men facing cancer. Professional sporting clubs endorsing Call To Arms this year include Essendon, Adelaide Crows, Parramatta, Gold Coast, Brisbane Broncos, Wests Tigers, and Adelaide United Football Club; and all will wear yellow armbands in a Call To Arms match. For more information or to register your club, visit www.calltoarms.com.au and fundraise to help tackle cancer in men.

Local mental health boost EXTRA help and support for an additional 160 people a year living with a mental illness in and around the Bellarine, Surf Coast and Geelong regions will be delivered thanks to a $4million State Government expansion of mental health facilities. Minister for Mental Health and Member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville, last week inspected the progress of a development under way as part of an overall $27million package of improvement work at Barwon Health. “We understand Victorians are concerned about the health and wellbeing of their loved ones, that is why we are providing the right care when and where it is needed,� Neville said. “This development will improve Barwon Health’s ability to respond to emergency admissions and deliver even better results for people who need acute mental health inpatient treatment. “It will create six new acute adult beds, two new aged acute beds and include the development of an area for mental health triage. “Improvement works on existing high dependency and administration areas to accommodate the new beds are also being carried out.� Neville said this development was part of a package of investments aimed at improving the mental health support and treatment for people living throughout the state. “We know that one in five Victorians suffer from a mental illness during their lifetime,� she said.

“This is the latest in a range of new mental health initiatives aimed at improving mental health services and outcomes for people in and around the Geelong region. “In the 2010-11 State Budget we allocated $4.9million to establish two Youth Early Intervention teams in two regional areas of Victoria, with one to be based in Geelong. “We know that early intervention is vital to ensuring that mental health issues in young Victorians do not develop into life-long problems, and this initiative will ensure that young people in Geelong have the best possible support. “The 2010-11 Budget also included an additional $360,000 for intensive clinical and support packages for people who otherwise may require admission to a Secure Extended Care Unit. “A further $138,000 has also been provided for a forensic mental health clinical specialist to assist other mental health workers to identify, assess and develop appropriate management plans for people with high risk/challenging behaviours.� The State Government is also investing $365,000 to improve services to young people, including the Dual Diagnosis Homelessness Service in Barwon; has increased specialist mental health residential beds for the aged at the McKellar Centre from 30 to 45 beds; and has established a Prevention and Recovery Care (PARC) service providing 10 places – including six beds at Barwon Health’s Community Rehabilitation Facility.

CANCER Council Victoria is hoping three Surf Coast residents will use their time to fight cancer and register to volunteer at a local stall planned for Daffodil Day next month. Cancer Council spokesperson, Bree Attwood, said some 350 volunteer stalls will operate across Victoria on Friday, August 27, for the organisation’s signature event, which aims to raise $9million nationally this year. “If you think the one in two who gets cancer is one too many, then please volunteer for Daffodil Day,� Attwood said. “Raising funds is vital if we are to change the statistics.�

Fresh start for Barwon Heads THE STRONG community-base and beautiful environment are just two of the many aspects of Barwon Heads Primary School appreciated by its new principal. Darren Roskosch commenced his role as principal last term, after moving from Echuca Primary School, where he had worked his way up from class teacher to principal over 17 years. He said the school community considered the support it provided the children as ‘normal’ but it was actually quite unique and not so prevalent at many other schools. “I’m so happy to be here; the children are a

dream and there is a lot of family participation in school projects,” he said. “You have half the town come to the weekly assembly and that doesn’t happen at a lot of schools.” Darren’s wife, Kylie, son, Connor, who is in Year 6, and daughter, Holly, who is in Year 8, will move from Echuca at the end of the school year. He explained the family had purchased a new family home in Torquay and were looking forward to relocating, but it was important his children completed the year at their current schools.

Environment centre opening BY SIMONE MCNAUGHT QUEENSCLIFF Primary School will celebrate the official opening of its Environmental Learning Centre on Friday. Construction of the new centre has been funded through the Federal Government’s Building the Education Revolution programme, and the opening will be attended by Member for Corangamite, Darren Cheeseman, Queenscliffe mayor, Bob Merriman, guests and school representatives. School principal, Peter Martella, said the new Environmental Learning Centre would allow the school community to access a terrific facility which has

a focus on learning about our local environment. “The centre will be a space for students and teachers to use as they study our local habitat, and with a school positioned as perfectly as this, what a great way to learn,” Martella said. “The school has always had a focus on the environment and has dreamed of having a resource that students, teachers and the wider community can use, and this has now become a reality through the Australian Government and the Building the Education Revolution project.” The official opening will be held at 2pm on Friday, July 23 and the local community is invited to attend and see the centre first hand.

Rip Curl goes SURFWEAR giant Rip Curl last week launched its new Rip Curl Planet website, helping to showcase and outline the company’s many environmental priorities – past, present and future. Rip Curl prides itself on being one of the world’s most environmentally-conscious companies, stamping ‘respect for the environment’ as a key value ever since Brian Singer and Doug Warbrick founded the brand in Torquay in 1969. “We’re really excited about unveiling this website – it’s been a long time coming,” said global marketing and advertising chairman, Neil Ridgway. “Rip Curl has always placed a lot of importance on environmental sustainability and it’s great that we now have a medium to share our efforts and projects with crew around the world, and this website will be another important tool.” With the creation of the Rip Curl Planet Foundation in 2008, the team had the opportunity to increase Rip Curl’s support of several growing environmental projects and further focus efforts on new target initiatives. “We are very proud of what Rip Curl has done in the past, but there is still much to do to keep the work going,” said international chief executive officer,

online

Olivier Cantet. “We created the Rip Curl Planet Foundation to better focus our efforts and commitments around the world. “We have a strong determination to be environmentally responsible across everything we do, so our efforts are many and diverse. “We will forever focus on the environments we know best – the surf and the mountains – and be environmentally-conscious with our product design and manufacturing wherever we can.” ‘Save Our Surf’ and ‘We Surf, We Care’ are two of the company’s principle environmental call-outs, hitting home across the Rip Curl world. The company supports several reef protection and water quality projects, working with organisations such as WWF and The Surfrider Foundation to manage the problems. The Rip Curl Planet Foundation also drives a host of mainstream initiatives, such as energy consumption reduction, material recycling and waste reduction. These initiatives are addressed through a variety of ways, including Rip Curl Pro events, beach clean up days, product design and product recycling.

New campaign to advertise our region’s ‘perfect short break’ GEELONG Otway Tourism’s latest strategic marketing campaign on behalf of the industry will encourage visitors from Melbourne and beyond to take a short break in Geelong, the Bellarine, the Surf Coast and Otways regions. “We are the perfect destination for a short break, so ‘Short Breaks’ is the theme we are working with this year,” said GOT executive director, Roger Grant. “We are around an hour’s drive from Melbourne, which is great for people from the city who are looking to get away for a break. The focus of our

campaign is on the destinations and experiences on offer, not discounting and cheap prices.” Grant said in 2010, GOT had introduced a number of initiatives to support the strategic marketing campaign that is heavily subsidised by his organisation and also the State Government. “We do put a lot of resources into this campaign,” Grant said. “This year we really want to add value for the benefit of our members. “Our integrated campaign will feature print and

online advertising, email blasts and social media including Facebook and Twitter. “For those members who sign on with us as partners, there will be promotional opportunities available year round, catered to their special requirements. “GOT has appointed a PR agency, the awardwinning Geelong-based GSDM, to drive editorial coverage in the media. “In response to feedback from our members in Geelong and The Bellarine, we will be developing

theme months. “These include ‘Play Around on The Bellarine’ to promote our wonderful golfing facilities, and ‘Free Wheeling’ to leverage off the UCI World Road Championships to showcase the region as a great cycling destination.” General themes this year include food and wine, golf, nature and water based activities. “When you look at those themes and the associated packages, you can see they are very strong reasons to visit our region,” Grant said.

Industry Info

Tuesday 20 July 2010

Market hot despite cold weather For sale by owner THE RECENT rise in the number of websites offering ‘For Sale by Owner’ (FSBO) services raises important questions for state property professionals and consumers. A very small number of owners have always chosen to try to sell their property themselves, however, the trend has become more obvious because of the internet. The idea of selling your home yourself has always represented a false economy and still does – regardless of the apparent ease of the internet. In the first place, it simply may not be cheaper; many of the websites are simply fronts for a range of service providers seeking to sell a range of services that are often included in the professional fees charged by estate agents. Secondly, by not utilising the professional services of agents, consumers can be left exposed. They are less likely to get the best sale price and face the likelihood of having to spend countless hours doing the work normally done by an REIV Member. It may seem cheaper but will it really be cheaper when you take into account the cost of your time and a lower sale price? Together the REIV and www. RealestateVIEW.com.au provide access to all members with the fastest growing property portal in Australia (Nielsen Netrating, October 2008), the latest property sales results and information, and the tools agents need to win more listings. That’s why we won’t sell www. RealestateVIEW.com.au subscriptions to anyone who doesn’t have an estate agent’s licence or operate a licensed estate agency.

Former Bomber to sell up

FORMER Australian Football League player, Rick Olarenshaw, has put his Jan Juc property on the market. Olarenshaw, who played a total of 83 AFL games with Essendon, Collingwood and the Kangaroos during his career, has enlisted the services of Shaun O’Callaghan at Hocking Stuart to sell the property.

Starting on page 53 To submit information for the industry news page, please forward photographs or editorial to: advertising@surfcoasttimes.com.au by Wednesdays at noon.

Located at 3 Wattle Court, Jan Juc, the fourbedroom, two-bathroom house will go to auction on Saturday, August 7. The house, which has been used as a holiday home for Olarenshaw and occasionally as a holiday let, is estimated to fetch between $580,000 and $600,000.

The house has been described as a “great family home” and following some recent outstanding results along the Surf Coast, interest in the property is expected to be high. For more information, phone the team at Hocking Stuart Torquay on 5261 8888 or visit www. hockingstuart.com.au

THE WINTRY weather hasn’t cooled down the local property market, with a huge crowd of more than 80 people attending the auction at 40 Beach Road in Torquay recently. The fully renovated 1940s period home drew a fierce bidding was between seven bidders before the property eventually sold through Hayden Real Estate for $725,000 – $125,000 over the reserve price. “It was an exceptionally strong result that exceeded everyone’s expectations,” said Patrick Hayden from Hayden Real Estate. “It’s a slightly unusual property for Torquay, being a renovated period home. These properties are very sought after today.” The Beach Road sale continued a busy winter season of sales for local estate agents.

MARKET UPDATE

THE COMING MONTHS

PROPERTY REPORTS

We can again report excellent sales volumes & results from your dedicated sales team. A record land sale in Jan Juc & top results in home sales have been achieved over the cooler months. There has also been several exceptional sales in the rural area in and around Bellbrae / Bells Beach. The market remains buoyant across all sectors & we are seeing time on the market decreasing whilst prices across the board continue to escalate.

Stock levels have remained constant for the last few months after a dramatic drop in availabilities as we moved out of the effects of the GFC late 2009. Despite the cooler weather enquiry is strong though naturally numbers around town are down. As buyer confidence continues to improve we see further decreases in stock levels which can only impact positively on prices.

If you are considering selling we would be pleased to view your property at a time convenient to yourselves and provide a current market appraisal and report. Our report will include recent sales, availabilities, market conditions and options for marketing and selling programs.

WRECK OF THE ‘JOSEPH H SCAMMELL’ CONT.: Extracts from ‘History of Torquay’ by James A Baines 1938 About three months later the work was entrusted to a third contractor, who obtained from a Geelong Shipping company, a quantity of heavier gear, this gear proved equal to the strain, and the house was successfully hauled up the cliff and placed into position in readiness for the builders. When the owner arrived to arrange for the erection of the second storey, the only complaint he had to make was that the building had been placed in the wrong person’s land, and another team of horses had to be engaged to move it to the adjoining block.

YOUR GUIDE TO BUILDING & CONSTRUCTION ON THE SURF COAST & BELLARINE

Your home is your world

GJ GARDNER Homes Geelong is pleased to announce the opening of its newest Display Home, the Catania 234 – a new plan to the GJ Gardner Homes Metro range. The Catania has been designed with flexibility in mind. Areas within the home have been apportioned to enable sections of the home to be easily mirrored and in some respects, switched, so that the home can be adaptable to a wide variety of living styles while addressing the issues of orientation towards the sun. Such changes are possible without modifying the floor area or roofline and thus resulting in no change to the cost of the home. In addition, this thought to design and flexibility means the floor plan can be readily adapted to sloping blocks with

minimal disruption to the layout and design, while adding floor area by closing in the alfresco area, or extending the home with an upper storey which can all be readily accomplished. The Catania is truly an innovative design with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, study nook, outdoor area, lounge, laundry, open kitchen, meals and family room and double garage. Space has been utilised in an extremely versatile and practical way. All bedrooms are totally private and separate and all living areas are social and open plan – yet if you look at the floorplan closely, you will see the advantages of entertaining guests anytime.

Sloping site solutions

HAMLAN Homes has forged a name as specialists when it comes to designs for sloping blocks. One of the recent innovative designs that Hamlan Homes has created to work with sloping and elevated blocks minimises site costs while maximising views. The Arlington 192 LS is now on display in the Arlington Rise Estate at Portarlington, and is a sensational exhibition of the views Hamlan’s split-level designs are capable of achieving. The intelligent design splits the home with convenient, short flights of stairs connecting the three levels. Situated on the middle floor is the spacious master featuring full ensuite and walk-through robe, and adjacent to this is the internal access to the double garage. The ground floor features a further two bedrooms, both with BIRs, central bathroom and laundry, as

well as the rumpus room – a great space for the kids. This leads out to a gorgeous entertaining area, with cover provided by the deck above. The first floor comprises a light, bright openplan living and dining area, leading out through a wall of windows to the timber deck. The gourmet kitchen features stone benchtops, Bosch appliances, including a 900mm freestanding oven among many other features. The display – built from brick and matrix cladding with a Colorbond roof – the home also features Hamlan’s ‘Platinum Package’ designer specification upgrade which, for a fraction of the price, includes plenty of added extras. To view the Arlington 192 LS, visit 6 The Rise, Arlington Rise Estate, Portarlington. The display is open weekends from 1pm-5pm. For more information, phone Hamlan Homes on 5222 5555.

A home for all seasons We all love discussing the weather but living with changes in climate is a different matter. I have been building homes in the Geelong region for 20 years and there has never been a more important time for building sustainable homes which respond to our changing seasons. At Derbyshire we specialise in creating beautiful contemporary homes that we design and build to stay warm in winter and cool in summer. This is crucial as population growth demands more from the Earth’s natural resources and inflation pushes up the cost of our household bills. The building journey at Derbyshire always begins with listening to individual clients about how they want to live and what is important to them. Working together to design and build a new home ideally suited to their land, location and lifestyle. Our clients are talked through sustainable design options such as double-glazed windows, wide eaves, shade battens, insulation, thermal mass, lighting and heating/cooling. The choice is theirs but the end result is always a more energy efficient home with a lighter carbon footprint. We hand over the keys knowing our clients will live in a quality built Derbyshire home that delivers a better way of living and has a greater resale value in a world where we are becoming increasingly aware of our environmental responsibilities. If this sounds like the end result you are looking for please give us a call on 5221 8409 or visit our award-winning Platinum Series One display home in Highton to experience the many benefits of a Derbyshire home.

Maher to star at Deans Marsh

MELBOURNE singer-songwriter Leticia Maher will bring her immense talents to the Martian’s Café at Deans Marsh this weekend. Maher, who burst into the music spotlight with the launch of her acclaimed album, Fallen Angels, almost 12 months ago, will play an intimate gig at the popular Deans Marsh location this Sunday from 2pm. Backed by Greg Williams, the duo will play a three-hour show at the laidback location. It’s been a whirlwind few months for Maher, since the launch of the album at Melbourne’s renowned Northcote Social Club in August last year. Since then, the album has been receiving strong community radio airplay around the country. The momentum continued this year with an appearance at the St Kilda Festival, a successful South Australian tour capped with a sold-out show at the Adelaide Fringe and recently supporting the Black Sorrows in Geelong. The Deans Marsh gig is part of her touring to promote her album through Victoria and South Australia – with plans to tackle New South Wales and Queensland in the pipeline. Fallen Angels was produced by Aria Award winner Craig Pilkington (Killjoys, The Blackeyed Susans, Mick Thomas, The Lucksmiths), and recorded at Audrey Studios with some of Melbourne’s most talented musicians. The album lifts the veil on an award-winning songwriter whose alternative rock songs touch on jazz, blues and country.

Above all, Marsh’s crystal-clear, haunting voice and her atmospheric, emotive guitar playing draw you in. An instrument capable of broad swathes of expression, torchy soul, playful country, sophisticated pop jazz, vampy blues to smoky cabaret, Marsh’s voice has won her many Victorian and national country music awards. Her singing brings to mind the clarity of Eva Cassidy, the intimacy of Bic Runga, cool grooves of Diana Krall and the compassion of Sarah McLachlan. The first single from the album, Behind Your Smile, was released in April last year. It is about trusting, finding and not losing the best in yourself. In the soul ballad Walk Away, the character pleads with her lover to let go; Hello Perfect Day describes gratitude for a peaceful perfect moment over lazy jazz infused reggae. The album then moves to a lighter and more playful mood – with the sassy Come On Boy and Popcorn providing double meanings of food and love. For the album’s grand finale, Fallen Angels is a heartfelt appeal to humanity concerned with how people treat the environment and one another. Tickets for the gig are priced at $10 – with $2 from every ticket sold going to LorneCare. For more information on the gig, phone the Martian’s Café on 5236 3350.

Go green this Friday Tuesday 20 July 2010

THE GREEN Room CafÊ in Torquay will this week host a wine evening, featuring some of the best vino on offer from Bellarine Peninsula-based Oakdene winery. The evening – to be held this Friday from 6.30pm – will feature a fivecourse meal which will be accompanied by specially selected wines from Oakdene. The wine night is the first one being held by The Green Room CafÊ, and due to catering requirements bookings are essential – and with a limited number of placings – you had better be quick. To complement the five-course banquet, a representative from Oakdene will be on hand to speak about the wines to be served with each course. Tickets – which include a five-course meal accompanied by wines, followed by coffee and petit fours – are $80 and as seats are limited, moving quickly to book a ticket is advised. For more information or to reserve a place for the evening, phone The Green Room CafÊ, located in Bell Street, Torquay, on 5261 9575.

Jason Crawford from The Green Room prepares for Friday night’s wine extravaganza.

Top pianists come to town THE GEELONG Chamber Music Society will present an evening with two outstanding Russian pianists next week. Now in its second year, the Geelong Chambers Music Society was formed with the primary aim of bringing performers of national and international standing to the region. The performance of Igor Machlak and Olga Kharitonova will be held at McAuley Hall, Sacred Heart College, Aphrasia Street, Newtown on Friday, July 30 from 7.30pm. It will be the third concert in the society’s 2010 Subscription Series, and it promises to be a highlight – especially for those who love piano music or who have piano students in the family. The performance will also be the first time the society will feature two grand pianos on stage at the one time. Machlak and Kharitonova will perform works by Schumann, Brahms and Stravinsky. The pair graduated from the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory, and have won many prizes during their successful international careers. Tickets may be purchased from the society secretary on 5243 6931 or from Gee long Performing Arts Centre on 5225 1200 or by visiting www.gpac.org.au Ticket prices are $35 (adult, including seniors), $30 (concession card holders) and $12 (full-time students).

A warming winter Shed BY LAURA DUKE THERE is plenty to keep everybody entertained at The Potato Shed this month. While it may be cold and wet outside, Drysdale’s premier entertainment venue will keep all ages happy with a host of events – from feasts to fundraisers. Crash Course Productions brings a five band lineup to the Shed this Friday for an all-ages gig, with Perfect Fit the headline act. Venue co-ordinator, Rob McLeod, described their music as ‘pop punk’ and is confident that “a great time will be had by all”. The fully supervised, all-ages event will run from 6pm-10pm, and entry is $10 with tickets available at the door. The Spud Club open mic nights happen on the last Friday of every month, and there is even more of a reason to be a part of it next week as all funds are going to Blaise White and Zac Dodds. The two local boys are undertaking the ‘Alex Dodds Walk 4-a-Cure’ – a 400-kilometre trek from Drysdale to Tocumwal to raise money for cancer research in memory of their late grandfather. Doors open at 6.30pm, and entry is $5. MacLeod said the event is open to all ages and talents, and everyone is welcome. “Anyone can be a part of the night,” he said. “We usually encourage the younger people, the juniors and teenagers, from around 6pm to 8.30, and

then open ages after that.” And MacLeod said there was always a variety of acts on offer. “We have had poetry, rap, comedy, play recitals, singing,” he said. Contemporary dance group, Collision Dance, will be at the Shed from August 5 to 7, performing The Dress and creating different ‘atmospheric scenes’, such as setting up a beach. “It’s really innovative work,” said MacLeod. You can see Collision Dance at 8pm on Thursday, August 5 and Friday, August 6, and at 2pm on Saturday, August 7. Also on August 7 is an all-ages acoustic event, described by MacLeod as a more acoustic, family gig, featuring local Ocean Grove bands such as The Rustys, The House, and Sambrose Automobile, to name a few. And there is also plenty for the younger generation, from primary school kids to tiny tots. Getting Active is a local group which runs activities for children, and they hold dance classes every Wednesday for pre-school and primary school children. Other regular classes include ballet, Zumba, tiny tots dance, drama classes, play readings and much more. The Potato Shed is located at 41 Peninsula Drive, Drysdale.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

CORKS CREW CELLARS

Delicious to a ‘T’… TALTARNI has been around now since 1969, it being one of the pioneering wineries to produce exciting red, white and sparkling wines in the rich soils of the Pyrenees region of Victoria. The philosophies at Taltarni have long been allied with French winemaking traditions by focusing on balance, and especially elegance and finesse – distinctly European attributes – this French connection doesn’t stop there either as Taltarni has long been using French winemakers to bring forth this European slant to its wines. Across its portfolio, Taltarni works hard to find distinctive regional qualities when sourcing fruit from areas such as Tasmania (for it’s wonderful ‘Clover Hill’ sparkling), that is so at home in the production of sparkling wines, and also the Heathcote region that is renowned for quality red wine. This attention to detail pays dividends when you see the end result in the wines. Recently, a new batch of wines was finally released with much anticipation shown by your humble scribe as I had tasted these wines nearly three months ago (!), and I can only say that they are well worth the wait. Read on…

Taltarni ‘T Series’ Victoria Shiraz 2007 ($17)

Vibrant, medium to full bodied red with up front blackberry flavour, an edge of plummy, brambly fruit, and a fine hint of white pepper and regional eucalypt. The fruit is 45% Pyrenees and 55% Heathcote with 5% of that being Viognier blended in to add texture and complexity. This is delicious ‘drink now’ Shiraz made to suit any occasion and most foods, and is priced to appeal. Terrific winter drinking!

Taltarni Heathcote Victoria ‘Single Vineyard’ Shiraz 2006 ($35)

Rich, dark red, 500 million year old Cambrian soil (as opposed to Coonawarra’s ‘Terra Rossa’ soil being only around 300 million years old!), counts for a lot in this regional Shiraz. Some Heathcote reds fall for the trap of being all big and blustery, yet what we really want to see is refinement, elegance and finesse – all the attributes that Taltarni aspires to with their wines, and yes this is certainly up there. It’s a potent, dark berry fruit compote woven through with threads of pepper and spice that’s seen 16 months in American oak yet doesn’t necessarily flaunt it. A ripper!.

Taltarni Pyrenees Victoria Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 ($35)

Fine grained tannins, seamless structure, complexity and balance, integrated French oak, rich blackcurrant/cassis flavours with length to burn, all goes to show that this is a class act indeed. Regional mint undertones are thankfully kept well restrained and once again the French oak component is only in a supporting role. Whilst this is great drinking now, it will only grow in stature and complexity over the next 10 years – if you can wait that is!

Sing along with one of the best Tuesday 20 July 2010

SINGING for fun will take on a whole new meaning at Bellbrae Hall later this month. On Friday, July 30, the hall will come alive with the sound of music – in the shape of the monthly gathering of the Singing for Fun group. This night out is perfect for those who love to sing; whether you hum as you do the housework, whistle while you work or let your lungs loose in the shower. The evening’s guest leader this month is the vibrant Sarah Carroll, who will inspire and transport you with music drawn from her diverse experiences

– ranging from Sweet melodic harmonies, to Tamworth-style country twang to songs to make you swing and soar with the glories of Gospel. Singing for Fun, a community singing group run by local and enthusiastic leaders, promotes the chance to ‘Sing like nobody’s listening’, and the philosophy that we all can sing when given the opportunity. This vibrant and vocal group gather – not to perform or rehearse – but just to sing for the enjoyment of singing as a group. Carroll is well known throughout Australia as

part of GIT, The Pirates of Beer and most recently, The Junes, regarded as one of the finest femalefronted bands in the land. She is an accomplished musician, singer and songwriter in her own right and is currently roadtesting songs for her third solo album. Carroll has been director of The Tides Of Welcome Soul and Gospel Choir, based in Queenscliff, for the last six years. During this time, the choir has performed at every Queenscliff Music Festival, as well as other venues in Melbourne and Greater Geelong, and recorded two albums.

Carroll’s character, humour and passion for music shine through in every song and her infectious personality and love for music shines through. Singing for Fun meets the last Friday of each month at Bellbrae Hall, School Road, Bellbrae, from 6pm-8pm. Cost is just $10/$7 concession, including a warming winter meal of hot homemade soup, crusty bread, fresh fruit and tea and coffee. There is no need to book, just turn up, and for more information, phone Michele on 5261 4807.

Sweet sounds at the blues club

GEELONG’S own ‘sweet and swampy’ blues king, Stringybark McDowell, will bring his one-man band to the Sleepy Hollow Blues Club this Sunday. McDowell plays various instruments, including acoustic and electric guitars, his famous diddley bow, and a foot drum kit consisting of a tom modified into a kick drum and a foot shaped rattle called ‘lefty’. Together with raw gritty vocals, he has been

playing his own special brand of blues infused with a wicked sense of humour, for more than 20 years. An original member of the country blues band Muddy Puddles, McDowell has toured Australia for years playing at gigs and festivals around the country, and he has also toured extensively in the UK, including playing at the Great British R&B Festival. He is a regular performer on the famous Blues

Train at Queenscliffe and recently performed at the Australian Blues Festival in Goulburn and the Echuca Winter Blues Festival. McDowell – aka Kenny Terrington – has released several albums, including Simple Songs of Every Day Stuff ‘n’ That and Thump Rattle Plunk which are both great additions to any music collection. As always, those attending are invited to bring

along their instruments as the jamming starts at 3pm, with the famous BBQ at 6pm, followed by McDowell playing through until 9pm. The club is located at the Geelong Trades Hall, 127 Myers Street, Geelong (enter from rear, off Smyth Place, via Little Ryrie Street). Entry is just $5 for members and $7 for nonmembers. For more information, phone 0434 126 644.

Tuesday 20 July 2010

TORQUAY Hotel will up the ante – literally – when it introduces poker to its range of events. Every Wednesday night the hotel will host APL poker which, for just an $11 buy in, provides players with the opportunity to take home the first prize of $300. The poker nights will be held from 6.30pm for registration with a 7.30pm start in the public bar, and are open to anyone over the age of 18 years. Places at the poker tables are limited, so be sure to express your interest early. And if skateboards are more your style, the hotel also has a Globe ‘Cruiser Board’ Longboard up for grabs. Valued at more than $230, the longboard is on offer to anyone who becomes a fan on the hotel’s Facebook page – with the winner’s name to be drawn on Friday, July 30. Apart from being able to win the skateboard, the Facebook page also allows you to keep up to date with what’s happening at the venue – from upcoming bands to the latest bistro offers. For more information, phone the Torquay Hotel on 5261 2001.

Perfect concert – perfect setting THE HISTORIC St Paul’s Church in Geelong will provide the perfect setting for a concert this weekend from international stars Julien Dupont and Seiko Yagi. The church, which dates back to the 1860s, will host the talents of Dupont on the violin and Yagi on the pianoforte as they plays works by Mozart, Faure, Brahms and Messiaen. Both musicians have rich histories, with Frenchman Dupont learning the violin at the age of seven and Yagi, from Japan, first playing the piano at the age of three. Sunday’s performance – to be held at 3pm – will act as a fundraiser for the Anglican Board of Mission (ABM) emergency relief fund. After growing up in his hometown of Grenoble, Dupont travelled to various countries throughout Europe to further his skills, including stints in Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands. In 2000 he obtained a highly acclaimed Premier Prix in violin at the Royal Conservatorium of Brussels, before spending the following four years in Amsterdam, studying with Keiko Wataya and graduating with

a Bachelor degree at the Amsterdam Conservatorium of Music in 2004. Since starting out on the piano as a toddler, Yagi has accumulated a number of accolades and honours throughout her career. Since 2005, Yagi has been residing in Japan, and her Australian appearance has been long anticipated. Tickets are $25 adult/seniors; $15 student/conc; and $55 family. For bookings email info@violinopedia.com or phone John Duncan on 5223 3003.

BYO Pools will also arrange solar heating and pool equipment at discount trade prices direct to the public.

JULY 20 - JULY 26 2010 Saturn (your ruling planet) cruises into your career zone on Thursday – for the first time in 27 years. This will boost your ambitions and increase your workaholic tendencies. Between now and October 2012 is the time to display your talents, and professional accolades are likely to come your way. No one said it was going to be easy though!

You’re keen to take the initiative and show others how to do things. Rambunctious Rams can be very bossy but remember that a true leader guides by example. Saturn visits your partnership zone for the next 27 months, so your ability to commit yourself to a serious relationship will be put to the test. Singles – it’s time to find lasting love.

Are you obsessed with someone? Can’t get them out of your head? Expect fanatical fantasies and over-the-top obsessions to increase this week, as the Moon, Jupiter and Pluto all fuel your private passions. For less compulsive Crabs, avoid getting drawn into power plays at work, as no one is likely to win. Friday favours fun and freedom.

Serious Saturn transits into your sign on Thursday, where it stays until October 2012. So it’s time to show the world your responsible, disciplined, hard-working side (it’s there, somewhere). You can’t get away with being a Libran lightweight anymore! Be inspired by Ernest Hemingway (born on July 21) “Courage is grace under pressure”.

Calling all Taurean couch potatoes! With Saturn moving into your wellbeing zone, you need to take a more disciplined approach to your health and fitness. Give fried foods and cream buns the flick and replace then with fresh produce and lots of physical activities in the great outdoors. And are you up-to-date with all your medical checks?

Money matters are on your mind as you weigh up the pros and cons of spending verses saving. Lions appreciate the finer things in life (you are a happy hedonist) but, in the current economic conditions, you’ll have to reign in your love of luxury and learn to live on less. On Friday, you’re in the mood for adventure and an adrenaline rush.

Revise and refine your goals for the future, as Saturn prepares to leave your hopes and wishes zone. Pluto squares up with Jupiter on Sunday, so you’ll feel even more intense and driven than usual. Just make sure you don’t trample over others on your climb to the top! Communication and compromise are the keys to lasting Scorpio success.

Are you bored to bits with your regular routine? Wednesday or Friday are the best days to step out of the daily grind and do something unpredictable or unusual. You don’t need to travel to far away places for excitement and adventure. There’s plenty of fun, friendship and good fortune to be found within the boundaries of your local community.

Gung-ho Geminis – you’re running around madly multi-tasking all over the place (and talking a lot) but are you actually achieving anything? As birthday great Ernest Hemingway observed “Never confuse movement with action.” It’s time to roll up your sleeves and get to work – with a spring in your step and a smile on your dial.

Are your finances in a monumental mess? The next two years is the time to develop strong new money muscles, as penny-pinching Saturn shakes up your $$$ zone. If you can’t make substantial changes yourself, then utilise the services of an experienced professional. Thrifty is the new black and (if you’re smart) you’ll be wearing it!

Sagittarians love to mix and mingle. It’s a great week to socialize with work colleagues but don’t blot your copybook by being too blunt and boisterous. You’re in the mood to overdo just about everything (especially food and drink) so pace yourself. You’ll feel extra restless on Friday but don’t fly the coop until you’ve finished all your work.

With Venus and Mars in your partnership zone, it’s the perfect time to look for a new love or reboot a tired old relationship. Pisceans are sentimental souls but avoid the temptation to be drawn back to the past. Ditch regrets and focus on the here and now. As birthday great Carlos Santana reminds us “The present is where everything begins.”

Mens pennant The home and way matches for men’s pennants were completed at the weekend. Clifton Springs proved to be the stumbling block for both teams, with the firsts suffering their only loss for the season against East Geelong at Clifton Springs and the seconds losing at Lonsdale against Clifton Springs. Final ladder positions are notable for the seconds, with the firsts finishing second in Division 1 and now playing their semi-final against The Sands at Barwon Heads, and the seconds finishing second last in Division 2.

Weekend results Saturday was round 2 of the Presidents Cup and the men posted some competitive scores. Russell Murfitt and Neville Henderson won A and B Grades respectively with 39 points and Stuart Leigh won C Grade with 38 points on a countback from David Steele. The cup is decided on the best two out of three rounds, with the last round to be played next Saturday. At the moment it looks like David Steele has the best two scores with 73 points, one shot ahead of Barry Coleman. For the ladies Brenda Balderstone won the day scoring 34 points, with five of those scored on the 8th after an eagle. She did have to share the eagle nest with Barry Coleman – Barry probably did get to putt! NTPs were Bruce Dawson on the 3rd and 16th, Barry Edwards and Mark Eskrigge. The field was quite small on Sunday – too wet and too cold. John McLachlan won the mens event with nett 68 from Mongrel Gowans with nett 69, and Ann Stokes won the ladies with nett 72. NTPs were Don Callahan, Ron Washington (by 2) and Terry Nowell.

points and good to see Andrew Durante finally finding some form with 37 points. The nearest the pins were won by Ian Treloar on the 7th and Craig Hunter on the 13th. A large field played on Saturday and with more favourable conditions, and some amazing scores were carded. Steve Troon blew the field away amassing a massive 45 points off a (very handy) handicap of 36. Well done Steve! Chris Fryar also had a great round, finishing with 41 points and taking out A grade for the day. The Nearest the pins were taken out by Adam Ruggero on the 5th, Brad Liddicoat on the 7th, Gary Kerr on the 13th and Craig Hunter the 17th.

having to abandon carts and walk but after some hasty phone calls and ‘tweaking’ with the competition a fun modified 4BBB par event was held. Wendy Muller and Jan Swain were the winners with 8 up while Christine Yelland and Merle Whitnall were runners-up on a countback on 7 up. The nearest the pins were won by two of our more senior girls, Anne Scott and Naomi O’Shea. A scrumptious lunch was served along with all the Christmas trimmings. The only notable absentee was the man in a red suit but Thelma Dainton was an excellent ‘fill-in’ with an array of gifts, for winners, lucky losers and those displaying excellence in rules of the game! On Saturday, a small field of women competed in the stableford event with Bridgitte Claney from Metropolitan Golf Club winning with 35 points.

atrocious. We had 75 start and only 30 of them completed their round. Peter Hester and Ray Shaw, both in B grade, and Brian Carpenter in the seniors, were the only players in the positive with Peter scoring 4 up, Ray 3 up and Brian 1 up. Winners in A and C Grades were Ian Lewtas and Frank Denehy, both with 1 down, and no-one claimed NTP on the 6th. But it wasn’t all bad, Kane Nusterling scored a hole in one on the 13th – pitching on to the green and a short roll into the hole. Other NTPs were Ian Lewtas and Tony Leeds. The field on Thursday was somewhat reduced with a few ladies travelling and others completing in the matchplay finals. In the competition for the day it was the Mary and Glenda show, with Mary Kay winning on a countback from Glenda Deans with 2 down. For the NTPs Mary scored one on the 13th and Glenda collected the remainder. Meanwhile, in the matchplay, Judy Talbot won Division 1, Rhelma Barnett won Division 2 and Pam Jones won Division 3.

FROM THE PRO SHOP

THERE is quite a buzz around the club following the weekend’s pennant results. Both Division 1 and 3 have qualified for next weekend’s semi-finals after finishing top of the ladder following the completion of the five preliminary rounds. Division 1 had an excellent win over their main rival, 13th Beach, for the right to play at Barwon Heads next week against Anglesea. Division 3 has had a terrific run into the finals and will meet Elcho Park in their semifinal at Winchelsea. We wish both teams the very best and hope their great form continues throughout the finals.

Wednesday’s results Wednesday’s event was two-person Ambrose. Greg Giampiccolo and Robert Muffett with a nett 63.5 won from Ken McCallum and Bill Higgins who had a nett 64.25. In third place were Don Matheson and Gary Rogers who had 64.5. NTPs went to Phillip Smith, Jos Bedem, Robert Hawkins and Ian Macguire, with Barry Hewitt taking home the Jackpot.

Saturday was another team event, being 4BBB stableford. Geoff Lamont and John Barnes with 47 points won on c/b from Darren Bartlett and Paul Simons. In third place were Gary Buchanan and Shaun Litaize with 46 points. NTP’s went to Don Forstyh, Gerry Phillips and Glen Mifsud. Jackpot was won by Rick McNamara. Ladies winners were Ainsley McCallum and Marilyn Young with 48 points with Ronnie Beacom and Deb Shoesmith r/up on 46 points. Julie Rogers, Lyn Moore and Marilyn Young took out the NTP’s. From the women’s room Many of our lady golfers travel to warmer climates in the winter months and are sending stories of their attempts to master the different courses as they go. It used to be the case that while it was wet and cold here it was warmer and dryer up north but these days

here seems to be no pattern and the girls are battling more rain there than we have had here. The South American travelers have returned with lots of tales to tell so share a round with them and they will keep you entertained – be sure to ask about the broken leg! The ladies had a stableford round playing in the Fisher and Paykel day. Gill Patten had the best of the A grade scores on a c/b from Maureen Stuart. A c/b was needed in B grade as well with Inge Oliver just piping June Laidler both on 38pts; Helen Bloink was the C grade winner and Sue Booth was runner up and in D grade Val McGann had the better of Bernadette Oliver.

Support grows for redevelopment THE PUSH to upgrade the Spring Creek Oval clubrooms continues to gain momentum. The Torquay Football Club played host to Shadow Sport Minister, Steven Ciobo, and Liberal candidate for Corangamite, Sarah Henderson, last week. The club’s Denis Ryan took the pair for a tour of the oval and clubrooms, and showed them the plans that had been drawn up for proposed improvements to the clubrooms. “It’s great that the car parking areas have been sealed this year, but plenty more still needs to be

done,� Ryan said. “We want to upgrade the building, with decking out the front for spectators to watch games, as well as internal refurbishment and extending the clubrooms. “We have produced a plan and formed a building committee among the football, netball and cricket clubs, and we have invited councillors to become involved. “This is a multi-use facility for the community and we will continue to lobby hard to seek funding and see the project through.�

QUESTION: What do the following people have in common: Ada Kuik, Karen Bird, Renate Holdinghausen, Ken Bunning, Jeff Anderson, G. Morrison, Jim Reed, Ernie Barnes, Fran Price, Sue Rolls, Thelma Hobson, Helen Mann, Brian Norton, Helmet Klein, Stan Jones, Moss Darby, Pauline Andrewartha and Merle Wapling? ANSWER: Over recent weeks, they have taken home the winners’ prizemoney. Congratualtions to all on your bowling prowess! Chicken Run The next Chicken Run will be held this Friday, July 23 at 2.30 pm. Could all experienced bowlers (who have not yet headed north!) please put your names down to play. Our limited members would benefit greatly from your encouragement and enthusiasm.

Winter programme Weather permitting, the club’s winter bowls programme (in neat, casual attire) will be as follows: MON Mens Starting at 12.30pm TUES Ladies Starting at 11am (BYO lunch) SAT Mixed Starting at 12.30pm All visiting bowlers are cordially invited to play on these days. Please register your name with the club by 9.30am on the day of play (either in person or by telephoning 5263 1229). You will be made most welcome. One for the ladies Attention all the ladies: our winter luncheons, held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month at 12pm at the Anglesea Golf Club, have again been very popular. There are only four more dates for this season, i,e. Wednesday, July 28, August 11 and 25 and September 8. Come and join us – lots of laughter guaranteed!

ALTHOUGH it was still quite cold this weekend, the rain held off and there were no gales, as Surf Coast teams once again took to the field. The conditions were kinder to both players and spectators. All teams battled hard, some missing key players and a mixed bag of results was the result. FFV Provisional Men: Surf Coast (3) v Epping City (1) Surf Coast Provisional 2 men scored another terrific away win against Epping City coming from 1-0 down to win 3-1, lengthening their lead at the top of the table. Surf Coast is now nine points and a big goal difference clear of third, with the top two positions gaining promotion. We now have two home games with a win in both of those putting the club a sniff away from a rare promotion double. Women: Surf Coast (0) v Geelong (7) It was a very disappointing day for the women who seemed to lack focus and the will to win this week. In their last encounter with Geelong at The Quay, they trounced them 3-0. This time, still missing some key players and having lost Tilly in defence, they struggled to stop Geelong’s strikers and their lack of speed in defence counted against them. U17 Boys: Surf Coast (10) v Surfside (2) The Surf Coast under U17s played their second coastal derby match for the season against Surfside this weekend hoping to improve on their disappointing loss to their rivals last time out. Despite some desperate defending by Surfside they could not stop a rampant Surf Coast forward line who took a 6-1 lead into halftime. The trend continued with four more goals for Surf Coast and only one goal in reply from Surfside.

U16 Girls: Surf Coast (5) v Breakwater (0) The Surf Coast Girls played another great game, defeating Breakwater 5-0. While a bit patchy at times, Surf Coast put together some memorable passages of play, with the Coasters first goal a classic. A terrific performance by Maddie Lambert who scored a hat trick, great effort by all of the defence, especially Ellie Banks who played a new role of sweeper. U14 Girls: Surf Coast Yellow (2) v Surfside (3) The Yellows had a great match and were unlucky not to draw 3-3 against Surfside after a beautiful strike from the wing by Coby in the last few minutes went just wide of the goals. Lucy was a standout in goals for the Yellows in the second half and it was mostly her great hands and courage to move forward that prevented Surfside from scoring at all. U14 Girls: Surf Coast Blue (0) v Kardinia (3) The Blues suffered the loss of seven of the starting 11 players this week due to injury and other commitments. A couple of the Legends stepped up to fill the void. However, The Blues displayed how far they have come from even earlier this season by providing a fantastic display of endeavour and skill in the first half. Alas, with the girls finally succumbing to exhaustion, Kardinia scored two soft ones in the last few minutes to make it 3-0. The Blues are very close to having a draw if not win against Kardinia. U12 Girls: Surf Coast (5) v Bell Park (0) The Legends finally found a nice day for a kick in the park. The sun was out and little breeze blowing. Great to see all the Academy kids come out in force to watch the next level up. It gives them an idea about what next year will be like. A solid 5-0 win.

BY GARRY KERR

WE ARE led to believe that a 200-page document setting out the demands by green groups with support from State Government departments such as Department of Primary Industries and Parks Victoria for the implementation of new marine parks has been presented to the State Labor Party prior to the upcoming election. This document links itself to the recent demands by 32 powerful green groups for more marine parks around the whole of Australia so as to ensure their political support at the next upcoming elections for either political party Corresponding with the current push by Peter

Garret as the Environment Minister for his Bio regional discussions on marine parks for all Australian waters, we should all hold deep concerns. The document in question is titled the VNPA Nature Conservation Review: Marine Conservation Priorities and Issues for Victoria. Having been presented, it corresponds to the same sort of demands being placed at a federal level upon all political parties. Please see the map below which shows all the areas they are pushing to be made into marine parks in Victoria.

REPORT

QUEENSCLIFF g A few whiting are still being taken on the grass at Queenscliff g Point Lonsdale pier is producing salmon g Trevally and small salmon are still in the creek g St Leonards is still seeing whiting and some calamari.

BARWON HEADS g Still good whiting, trevally and now salmon being taken from the river g Still no reports from offshore due to the TORQUAY g Some good gummies up to 10kg have been caught recently g Still plenty of whiting being taken close in shore g Salmon are being taken off the

They were designed at the time as a comprehensive, adequate and representative system of marine parks and reserves, yet just eight years later the VNPA is staking another grab for more areas. “Recreational anglers, tourism representatives and commercial fishing communities need to make an unequivocal and united statement and tell governments and opposition parties across the state that they do not accept these latest proposals from the VNPA. “I believe this is just an ambit claim to wedge the major parties into supporting the rest of the VNPA’s national parks grab in the lead-up to this year’s state election and I soundly reject it.” So there you have it. Now, you can either sit back and take the attitude ‘she’ll be right’ or you can contact your local MPs – both federal and state, both Labor and Liberal – to get their parties to commit to proper consultative arrangements and inclusion of all parties when discussing our future prior to the next elections.

ANGLESEA g Whiting are still available in close on the reefs g Salmon continue to be caught in numbers from the beaches and rocks g The Anglesea River has slowed down and once again is in flood, though some good size bream are still being reported.

This document has been produced without consultation from all stakeholders. This document fails to take into consideration the socio-economic impact on any of the areas named in the document. We would ask all parties at both federal and state level to reject these type of demands and undertake instead to work with all stakeholders – not just special interest groups – to come up with a sustainable and properly managed fisheries policies and not to cave in to these extreme groups and their demands, especially nearing election time Craig Ingram, the Independent Member for Gippsland East, is quoted as saying: “The original marine park legislation passed in 2002 was sold by both sides of politics as a one-off and not to be repeated process, yet the ink is barely dry and the VNPA is at it again. “The areas previously set aside were designed after 10 years of intense consultation and debate.
