Recognising Telstra’s local commitment, past and future,

TCW TTC CW C W 008 0 2/V 00 VIIC/ C/ /S SCB B T/1 T/ /

as part of our 100 year dedication to regional Australia.


TELSTRA COUNTRY WIDE A DECADE OF CHANGE Back in 2000, only 10 years ago, we communicated differently. While we were still using the home and business phone, mobile phone coverage was building, internet speeds were slow and we felt that the digital divide between city and country areas was increasing.

A PROUD HISTO RY

Telstra made a commitment to turn around the digital divide. Extending our commitment to regional and rural Australia, we established Telstra Country Wide. This group became the local face of Telstra to understand the needs of Australians living outside metropolitan areas and deliver the best in telecommunications for regional and rural customers.

BY DAVID THODEY Telstra has a long and proud history as an Australian company. Our vision is to improve the way people live and work – no matter where they live across this great country. That’s why we are delighted to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the creation of Telstra Country Wide and recognise more than 100 years of service to all Australians.

A decade later, we have come a long way. By introducing untimed local calls in remote areas, upgrading and increasing coverage of our mobile network, introducing wireless broadband and increasing fixed internet availability and speeds, we have delivered on the original commitment made to customers – but it hasn’t stopped there. Telstra’s innovation in regional areas has changed the shape of many communities. Local businesses can compete on the world stage with improved internet capabilities; regionally-based health care can offer remote diagnosis and monitoring; rural-based schools can provide the same opportunities for their students as those in the city with online learning; and environmental and farming businesses have improved their productivity through mobile telemetry, possible with the advancements of Telstra’s Next G™ network.

I hope that you will join us to mark these important milestones.

Telstra Country Wide’s staff also live and work in the regional and rural communities. They have a greater understanding of the situations that are unique to regional Australia. As we move into the next decade, Telstra has committed to being available in more places through our expanded retail and company network across regional areas. More local Telstra people are available to help you with your communications solutions. And, just as we have been in the past, we are there when you need us. When natural disasters occur, be it bushfires, floods or cyclones, the Telstra team is committed to helping the community through at every turn. On top of this, we are there lending a helping hand with community groups, through grants and sponsorships. We know that this is important because we are part of the community too. Telstra has been servicing regional and rural Australia for over 100 years. Telstra Country Wide’s 10 year anniversary is a testament to that dedication and service. This will carry on into the future.

David Thodey Chief Executive Officer

RIP CURL PRO The Rip Curl Pro, held at Bells Beach every year, is the world’s longest running surfing contest. Rip Curl Group Marketing and Advertising Chairman, Neil Ridgway, wanted an innovative telecommunications partner to help promote it around the world. “Through Telstra’s Next IP™ and Next G™ networks we’ve been able to take the Rip Curl Pro to surfing fans across Australia and the globe. Also this year we celebrated our 10 year partnership with Telstra Country Wide. Their modern network brought the annual Rip Curl World Championship Tour live from Bell’s Beach onto the internet, which was watched by over 1 million people worldwide. The innovation, partnership and support from the local Telstra Country Wide team means that we can showcase our event, facilities and beautiful coastline to the rest of the world. We look forward to continuing our strong partnership with Telstra for many years to come.” Neil Ridgway, Group Marketing and Advertising Chairman

VICTORIAN FA RMERS FEDERATION As farmers across Victoria look to improve their businesses, Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) President Andrew Broad believes that telecommunications services are a key determining factor in how they go about this. “The VFF is working constructively with Telstra Country Wide to ensure better telecommunications services for regional Victorians. While many people know of the benefits of Smartphones and wireless broadband for the corporate world, our farmers are also using this technology to grow and develop their businesses. We are increasingly seeing applications on farms that require wireless broadband. As service delivery improves we will see a broader adoption of these technologies. Telstra Next G™ Smartphones now mean that farmers can call their suppliers, contractors and mechanics with immediacy that used to be limited to the home phone after work. Telstra’s Next G™ network is enabling our farmers access to vital weather updates, commodity prices and information about farm management. The local Telstra Country Wide teams are working with the VFF to help change the way Victorian farmers do business.” Andrew Broad, President 01

Michael Crutchfield accepts criticism over lack of information on Torquay schooling

BY NATHAN HALE

MEMBER for South Barwon, Michael Crutchfield, has taken full responsibility for any confusion that may be surrounding the future of schooling in Torquay. In an honest and open admission, the State member said no blame should be proportioned to Torquay P-9 College; instead, he said any finger pointing should be squarely aimed at him. Debate has raged over the future of schooling in Torquay, and Crutchfield said parents had every right to voice their concerns over the direction of their children’s schooling. “I acknowledge that there has been a bit of a vacuum, and this has occurred because we have

Surf Forecast

been negotiating with council (to secure the land),” he said. “We just haven’t been able to give any information to parents and I put my hand up. “I have heard people have been blaming the school (Torquay P-9) and the principal, and that is not right. “If anyone has any problems with the lack of information they need to come and see me.” The State Government last year announced that Torquay P-9 would be expanded to accommodate Year 12 students – with the school using the existing land where the council offices currently are. It was also announced that a new primary school would be built just north of Torquay in the shire’s Community and Civic Precinct.

Since then, some parents have voiced concern and just last month a new group – Concerned Parents About Torquay Surf Coast Schooling (CPATSS) – was formed. “The positive part is that we have parents rightfully showing a strong interest in the children’s education,” he said. “And that’s what makes Torquay such a strong and healthy community… because of the interest and active roles people will take. “Unfortunately I think there are a couple of people with agendas that don’t sit with the broader community. “I can say that since we made our announcements last year that we have received two complaints saying we made the wrong decision.”

Crutchfield will attend a forum organised by CPATSS next Monday night (June 21) at the Spring Creek Reserve clubrooms at 7.30pm. Crutchfield will form part of a panel that will include Member for Western Victoria Region, David Koch, and Shadow Education Minister, Martin Dixon. While acknowledging and encouraging parents to voice their concerns, Crutchfield said those looking to push for a change in the future structure of Torquay schooling were wasting their time. “I always encourage people to have their say,” he said. “But the decision has been made… there is no point going back trying to re-prosecute a case in which a decision was made in August last year.”

It was a great privilege last week to be invited to open the Anglesea Art House’s 25th annual Art and Craft Exhibition over the Queen’s Birthday weekend. The exhibition has grown from a show of 50 local pieces in 1985 to a show with more than 400 paintings with various other items including craft, mosaics, pottery, prints. The show has been a great community occasion for a number of years, showing off some of the wonderful talent our Surf Coast community can be very proud of. Not only was it great to be invited to open the event, it was also wonderful to see the array of local work on display. Congratulations to the organisers and all involved in this event over the long weekend.

Following community feedback, this week council will be acting to fix a number of issues at the new Torquay toilet block in Gilbert Street. Concerns have been raised about elements of the facility design including hand basins placement and the lack of seats. Slimline hand basins will now be installed to allow for more space and seats will also be retrofitted after they were initially excluded to deter vandalism at the facility. The initial design of the facility had focused strongly on preventing vandalism, which is costly for council. However, ensuring these facilities can be comfortably used is obviously the first priority. Over the next two days, the old toilet block will be open for use while the retrofitting works are completed. Council apologises for any inconvenience during this time.

WINCH provides a big lift

Fantastic news in Winchelsea, with local federal member Darren Cheeseman MP and Parliamentary Secretary for Innovation and Industry, Richard Marles, announcing a $2million funding allocation for the new Winchelsea Integrated Neighbourhood Community Hub (WINCH) at Eastern Reserve. The WINCH will provide a centre for an array of community activities and events. It will include a community gym, meeting rooms, office space, commercial kitchen and multi-purpose function space catering for up to 200 people in addition to present change rooms. More than 20 community groups will call the WINCH home. Credit must go to Mr Cheeseman for his work in supporting this application – locally and in Canberra. My colleagues, particularly councillors Rose Hodge and Dean Webster, have also provided a lot of support behind the scenes. The Eastern Reserve Committee has done an amazing job in raising nearly $100,000 to go towards this development. The committee’s work with council has made Eastern Reserve a real community focal point in Winchelsea and this must be recognised. This is a great example of what can be achieved when council, community and Federal Government work together. Council is about to start the detailed design process and consultation with the groups that will use the facility is about to begin.

Winchelsea’s big win coast community environment

BY NATHAN HALE

WINCHELSEA has secured one of the biggest funding jackpots in the history of the Surf Coast Shire. More than a decade of hard work was rewarded last week when $2million was secured to build a community centre at Winchelsea’s Eastern Reserve. The Winchelsea Sports and Community Hub will be one of the biggest function venues in the shire, seating more than 300 people and being open to use for all sports and community groups. “This is just a great reward for everyone,” said one of the key figures in securing the funding, Barry Stevens. “It is the culmination of a dream from 12 years ago when we first wanted to upgrade facilities. “From that dream we established the Winchelsea Festival and that was the main fundraiser to establish a masterplan.” The funding – $2,060,000 in total – was announced last week by Federal Member for Corangamite, Darren Cheeseman, and came through the Regional Council Infrastructure Fund. Stevens said more than 20 groups are likely to use the new community hub, but no date had been set for the start of construction. “We are certainly not going to rush into it,” he said. “We want to make sure we do things properly and get this spot on. “At the moment we have had 20 user groups express an interest in using the facility… some might use it five days a week while others might use it weekly or for monthly meetings. “It has the capability to be used seven days a week. “From annual functions to weddings – children’s

playgroups to aerobic classes – there are a number of groups who can utilise the centre.” And while the $2million funding windfall might be enough for some committees to rest on their laurels, the Winchelsea committee is already planning its next strike. “We are looking at putting in an extra oval and tennis courts,” Stevens said. “When the land is sub-divided to the south of Eastern Reserve we hope to relocate the tennis courts and put in another oval to have a really highclass sporting complex.” The committee has also just secured $40,000 Optus to put in new lighting on the reserve – which is part of a $180,000 project. The significance of the $2million funding win was also not lost on Cheeseman. “The project will be a tremendous boost for the whole Winchelsea community and will include a multi-purpose function area, new gymnasium, new male and female changing rooms, meeting rooms, office areas, storerooms and commercial kitchen,” he said. “The project will be of great benefit to the running of the Winchelsea Festival, and also benefit to the Winchelsea Football and Netball Club, Winchelsea Cricket Club and Winchelsea Playgroup and over 20 other Winchelsea community organisations. “It will bring Winchelsea people together as one community. “Because of the multiple benefits to the community, I have to say this is one of the best projects I have had the pleasure in advocating for, and I sincerely congratulate all those involved, particularly Barry Stevens and the leadership of the Winchelsea Sports Club.”

Pictured at last week’s announcement were (from left) Surf Coast Mayor Libby Coker, Parliamentary Secretary for Industry and Innovation Richard Marles, who announced the funding, Winchelsea Netball Club’s Angie Mawson, chairman of the Eastern Reserve Committee of Management, Barry Stevens, and Member for Corangamite Darren Cheeseman.

THE LORNE foreshore is set to undergo a $1.7million modernisation of its iconic pool and recreational facilities. Geelong developer, Andrew Landos, who has holidayed in Lorne for more than four decades, said the upgrade will bring the Lorne Life beachfront complex and Lillian Beaurepaire Memorial Swimming Pool into the 21st century. “It is very exciting. From Mountjoy Parade people will look down and see kids skating, bouncing on the tramps, swimming and more,â€? he said. Works commence on stage one of the 18-month building plan over the next few weeks. The initial phase of the upgrade includes a decking and seating extension of the complex’s restaurant, new ticketing booths and toilet facilities, an upgrade of the precinct’s power and sewage systems, as well as the introduction of an 18-hole mini golf course. “It will be fantastic,â€? Landos said. Works will be on hold over the hectic summer season and will commence in early 2011. Highlights of stage two include an upgrade of the main pool, a heated and interactive “water playâ€? toddler’s pool, various heated baths as well as new toilets, showers and changing rooms. A public gym and a health and relaxation facility will also be built in stage two as well as landscaping and reshaping the area, which is nestled on the sandy shores of Lorne beach. “This will be an invigorated foreshore. This place will be a community asset which is sustainable into the future. The place is an icon‌ people can relate to it,â€? Landos said. Landos said the upgrade had been “a long time comingâ€?. He and partner, Kathy, have been working on the project for the past 11 years.

“We certainly had our opposition. There will always be arguments for and against developments but after public consultation we managed to iron out and resolve any issues people had,� he said. The Landos company Landcorp Foreshore Precinct Pty Ltd is putting up $1.5million for the investment venture.

Welcome to Warralily

Kitchen, Bathroom & 

A STRIKING six-metre sculpture has been unveiled to signal the entrance to Geelong’s newest residential community, Warralily, at Armstrong Creek. Federal Member for Corangamite, Darren Cheeseman, and State Member for South Barwon, Michael Crutchfield, accompanied by Geelong Gallery director Geoffrey Edwards, last week officially unveiled the award-winning sculpture by artist Ben Fasham. Edwards said the plate aluminium structure, called Conversation, stands as an impressive emblem of the new community and will be a significant addition to Geelong’s commitment to art within the environment. “The sculpture implies a conversation – the communication of ideas between people – making it a fitting signature for the new Warralily community,� he said. “Initiatives such as this are all too rare and I’m proud to be involved in the unveiling of this significant piece of art.� As the former senior curator of Sculpture at the National Gallery of Victoria, Edwards also said that Victoria has long been at the forefront Australia-wide of this notoriously challenging art form. “It is pleasing to see a young artist like Ben, who is leading the development of large-scale outdoor sculpture, create what will be a landmark emblem of the new Warralily community,� he said. Conversation was recently an award finalist for the prestigious Helen Lempriere National Sculpture Award at Werribee Park and Fasham said he hoped his sculpture would prompt many new conversations within the Warralily community. The sculpture will greet hopeful Warralily homebuyers at the highly anticipated sales launch planned for this Saturday.

APOLOGY The Surf Coast Times and Bellarine Times would like to apologise for the advertisement appearing in the June 8th issue which incorrectly omitted information.

Henderson sets date for forum LIBERAL candidate for Corangamite, Sarah Henderson, has rejected claims she has abandoned her push to form a Clean Energy Coast committee. In announcing a first Clean Energy Coast forum to be held on Friday, July 30, Henderson said she had taken on board public feedback. “There has been a slight change in the model, as we had feedback from local groups saying they didn’t want another enviro group,� she said. “So there has been a tweaking of the initial concept and it is really

exciting as this hasn’t been done before. “It is important for local groups to have support and feel encouraged, and this is what the forum will do.� Henderson said although no venue had been set for the forum, she confirmed it would be somewhere on the Surf Coast. “The Clean Energy Coast Forum will provide local environmental, community and Landcare groups with a central platform to come together and discuss ways we can lower carbon emissions along the

coast,� she said. She said the forum would act as a co-ordinating body to facilitate communication and to help harness the ideas of local communities. “From the Bellarine to the Surf Coast to Cape Otway, the coast of Corangamite is host to many small groups which are very concerned about our environment and the need to move to a low carbon economy,� Henderson said. “The forum is one way they can come together to work on common goals.�

Member for Corangamite, Darren Cheeseman, said Henderson’s change of tact on the clean energy coast committee was telling. “The Liberal candidate announced on the front pages of local papers her so-called ‘Clean Coasts’ policy, there was absolutely no follow through, and now she has admitted it’s been junked,� Cheeseman said. “This was the most high profile local policy release since she was reselected as the Liberal candidate and now she has dropped the policy.�

Anglesea’s big family day THE MAJOR fundraiser for the Anglesea CFA – the annual Hot Shots Golf Day – will be held this Saturday at the Anglesea Golf Club. And apart from the action on the course, the station has again secured two cartoon sketches from former Herald Sun cartoonist Geoff Hook – best known as ‘Jeff’. The sketches – one of Geelong’s Gary Ablett and the other of Premier John

Brumby in ‘incorrect firefighting gear’ – will be key items in the afternoon auction. Apart from the sketches, other auction items will include VIP passes to next year’s Rip Curl Pro, Footy Show tickets and an Apollo Bay Music Festival package – as well as many other items, raffles and surprises. Aside from the golf and raffles, the family day will also include plenty of fun for the children, with a barbecue,

performing circus group and fire engine rides. Funds raised from the day will go towards the Our Station Our Future redevelopment, where the goal is to raise $1.5million over the next three years to remodel the existing station. The auctions and raffles will get under way around 4pm, with the children’s fun and barbecue kicking off around midday, with all welcome.

Looking after the Heath EMPLOYEES from Alcoa Anglesea and Parks Victoria joined forces last week to remove boneseed from an area of the Anglesea Heath next to the Anglesea Power Station. The activity area was subject to a prescribed burn in 2009 and has seen vigorous regeneration of the heath, including unfortunately, boneseed. Boneseed is a non-native weed of national significance. It is known for its aggressive invasion of Australian bushland and is regarded as one of the worst weeds in Australia. The activity aimed to recognise World Environment Day, which was celebrated globally on June 5. It also aimed to celebrate the long-standing partnership between Alcoa Anglesea and Parks Victoria to manage the Anglesea Heath, providing employees from both

organisations with another way to get to know each other. The land known as the Anglesea Heath overlays land leased by Alcoa under the Mines (Aluminium Agreement) Act 1961. It is made up of the area used by Alcoa for mining and power generation, known as the Mining Area, which is closed to the public. The remainder is known as the Land for Conservation. The Land for Conservation offers one of the most diverse and spectacular areas for flora, scenic landscape and wildlife communities in Victoria, is accessible to the public and is a popular local recreational area. Alcoa works closely with Parks Victoria to ensure that the Anglesea Heath is managed in a way consistent to the adjacent Great Otway National Park.

A look behind the scenes AS PART of its 10-year anniversary celebrations, Telstra Country Wide is inviting the community to its exchange for a rare open day. The day will be held this Saturday at the Geelong exchange at 19 Little Ryrie Street from 10am-1pm. Apart from being able to see how the exchange works, those attending can also view a display on the evolution of telecommunications equipment over the years. The latest modern products will be

available to test, including the T-Box, T-Hub and next generation mobile phones. A special on-site feature will be the Telstra Emergency Communications Kit (TECK), which is a portable communications pack designed to provide voice, data and broadband services to the key emergency services during times of crisis. A sausage sizzle will also be available during the anniversary celebrations.

For Bells’ sake

An open letter from Gordon Stammers

SURFING is a magical experience, and one location that generates camaraderie among surfers like no other is the Bells Beach Surfing Reserve, an internationally renowned surfing location that provides world-class waves in one of the most beautiful environments in the world. Unfortunately, like most popular surfing locations, Bells Beach is under the pump. Alongside the growing numbers of surfers there are now increasing numbers of tourist buses, interstate caravans and day tourists arriving at Bells on a daily basis. To address this growing problem the Surf Coast Shire has recently drafted a new Bells Beach Masterplan in an effort to tackle such important issues as improving traffic management, upgrading infrastructure such as toilets, drainage and car parks and reducing threats to protected plants and animals as well as cultural heritage sights. It’s a brave and substantial masterplan that delivers a much-needed vision for Bells Beach and the Surf Coast Shire is to be applauded for its effort in setting the ball in motion. However, I (and many surfers I have recently spoken to) believe one part of the masterplan is seriously flawed and does not stand up to scrutiny or best practice when it comes to managing the tourist impact on this beautiful and much loved area. It is the plan to construct a new sizeable overflow car park at Bells to cater for the increased tourist traffic buses, car/caravans and general day-trippers. Unfortunately this new ‘standalone’ car park has the potential to turn many of the benefits the masterplan delivers into traps that has plagued us since the Stone Age, by simply increasing the supply of parking spaces to tourist visitors rather than having a more sustainable plan to reduce demand. From all reports – and transport planning experts agree – that increasing parking availability in small defined areas such as Bells tends to distort the market in favour of increased visitor presence and generally exacerbates congestion in the long term rather than reduce it. The current proposal is like fighting obesity by letting out your belt by inducing demand that did not exist before. I believe this new proposed car park will create, rather than reduce congestion problems at Bells and hence bring more damage, more rubbish, more frustration and more resentment as surfers see their reserve gradually transformed into a tourist park. I respectfully suggest to the Surf Coast Shire that instead of building the new car park they revisit the idea of setting up a bus licensing/ quota system that allows for more sustainable visiting to Bells. This process could permit a maximum number of buses to visit the reserve on any given day (six perhaps), regulate their visiting to certain times of the day and to certain defined points (extra bus visits could go to locations such as The White Wave and Southside if needed; where caravans and huge Winnebagos could also be redirected – a little exercise never hurt anyone). This seems a more practical response because it not only sends the message that unregulated numbers of visiting buses (and camper/trailers) will no longer be tolerated at Bells, it also sends the message that surfers still have priority visiting rights at the reserve. A reserve that was founded by surfers, has been continually cared for by surfers and will also remain under the attentive stewardship of surfers. Thankfully, the new Bells masterplan is open for discussion until June 30. To this end I encourage all surfers interested in a long term vision for Bells to look at the masterplan and submit their opinions/ideas before it’s too late. Now is our best chance to get the future of Bells right. Gordon Stammers is a Jan Juc resident of 25 years and keen surfer who has sat on the committee of the Bells Beach Steering Committee. surfcoasttimes.com.au

Super board surfs into town BY ELEANOR WOODS IT WAS a long time coming for a longboard fit for a king. After one year the lovingly designed 12foot prized possession has finally made its way through various obstacles and stages of production to the water. Proud owner of the board, Torquay’s Grant Forbes, made sure he took ample photos of the “beauty” before waxing her up for the first time. “Isn’t she magnificent,” he said, gleaming. The quest to create the mammoth board came after Forbes borrowed a friend’s and decided he would invest in one similar. Forbes’ board would be one of only a handful around, so he roped in renowned shaper Doug Rogers to create the curves of the cherry red and

white wonder. However, in the early stages of production Rogers suffered a severe heart attack which put the board on the back burner. “He nearly died. He had to rest for ages but finally he got back to work,” Forbes said. After being shaped there was a long wait for Forbes’ desired red paint to arrive before the board could be dressed in its best. Then the half-made giant waited patiently through peak season for a place big enough in the Moonlight Laminating Factory workshop to be finished off. “She was so big there had to be no other boards in there to fit her,” Forbes said. Finally the gleaming girl has been released on the Surf Coast so expect to see Forbes sneaking waves at a break near you.

Surfing stars on the rise WE HAVE BY ELEANOR WOODS

THE SURF Coast wing of Sports Education and Development Australia (SEDA) is raising rising surf stars. SEDA began its Torquay-based Sports Development Programme in conjunction with Surfing Victoria and Victoria University to offer high school students a channel toward careers in the surfing industry at the beginning of this year.

Already the school is seeing success roll in as its students collect competition titles and align themselves for their future in the sport. Bells Beach-based rising surf star, Mitch Baker, moved from Phillip Island to take advantage of the school which supports his dream of becoming a pro surfer. “It helps me surf a lot more as well as meet people in the industry and gives me more time to focus on competing,” the 17-year-old said.

SEDA students Sam Suenderman and Mitch Baker are making the most of ‘surf school’.

Baker took the top spot at the Rip Curl Pro Junior Challenge earlier this year and placed second at the recent 2010 Victorian School Surfing Titles, pipped at the post by Jan Juc’s Harry Mann. Currently competing on the Pro Junior Circuit, Baker has just returned from Western Australia and will soon make his way to South Australia and Bali, all the while gaining industry-related qualifications. Classmate, Sam Suenderman, is also collecting praise for her performances. Suenderman’s teacher, Stui Hawken, described the teenager, who finished third at the 2010 Victorian School Surfing Titles, as “one of the top up and coming longboarders in the country”. The Anglesea 17 year old was first in the under 18s and second in the open division of the State Longboarding Titles earlier this year before going on to finish third at the National Longboarding Championships. Hawken said the students have really excelled in their areas of interest and encouraged any young person interested in pursuing a career in coaching, events, surf lifesaving, retail, manufacture or any other surf-related vocation to consider the school. “It’s sensational. The success has been even better than I thought it would in terms of outcome for the students,” he said. “We have had great support from the community and the students are working really hard.” Along with gaining qualifications in first aid, coaching, surf lifesaving, fitness, nutrition as well as practical surf experience, the students also study literacy and numeracy at VCAL and VCE level. SEDA has 36 schools throughout Victoria that cater to a variety of sports interests, including AFL, soccer, cricket and netball.

Surf Coast Highway bike lane Dear Editor, Recently, VicRoads resurfaced sections of the Geelong-bound lane on the Surf Coast Highway. In doing so they also resurfaced the bike lane, replacing the old smooth lane with a very course bone-jarring mixture – which might be okay for a mountain bike, but is terrible for road bikes. To add to the joke, on completion of the job they swept loose bluestone from the road pavement but left the gravel on the bike lane. I rang VicRoads and they acknowledged that the surface was very rough, but said that even though the bike lane had been okay beforehand, the new surface would have really good traction and the spokesperson’s advice to cyclists would be to just cop it. My advice to cyclists is to carry a toolkit and retighten all the nuts and fittings after a trip into Geelong! Pete Currie Jan Juc

Three strikes and‌ Dear Editor, Three quick comments, if I may. 1. Hating to be left out of the current BER fiasco, our inept council has produced its own version with the Shouse in the Ryan’s car park. It is a classic example of the wrong building in the wrong place at the wrong time.

2. Am I the only resident of the Surf Coast fed up to the back teeth with successive mayors’ anodyne comments each week in the mayor’s column? 3. Most of us have woken up to the fact that council is a puppet, the pupeteers are the chief executive officer and the ever-expanding other senior staff. On top of all this, council burdens us with a gigantic rise in rates and other charges, doubtless aiming for the ‘award’ of being the dearest shire in the state. Michael Muschamp Torquay

Torquay toilets prove below par Dear Editor, I recently did the ‘tourism thing’ and caught the train to Lilydale in order to cycle on the Warbuton Rail Trail. En-route to Warburton we stopped, as nature demands, to visit a toilet block which was unisex and had exactly the same toilets bowls as the new ones in Torquay. I have to say that these toilets were clean and worked perfectly well. They were, however, a bit wider. The toilets were in a row with an outside row of wash basins in an open area and, to the designer’s credit, taps turned off independently after a short time. Given that the basins seem to restrict movement in the new Torquay toilets, perhaps they could be removed and located outside. This would not only allow more space inside the

toilets but also free up the amount of time one spends inside the toilet. In regard to cleanliness, if the toilets on the Warbuton Rail Trail were able to be kept clean, why can’t ours? Anne Sullivan Torquay

Options for Torquay Golf Club Dear Editor, The Torquay RACV Gold Club has received a heap of undue flack in regard to the water and salt problems – which are a major concern. About 30 years ago, a development company had plans to convert the course into a housing project, which I am sure would have sold well with the ocean views. A new course and clubhouse was to be built on land on the north side of Coombes Road where the elevation is much higher (little salt) with beautiful views across to Geelong and the coast. The proposal was put to a meeting of club members, but just prior to this meeting the club had a dramatic listing of new members – a lot of which were not golfers. The members were from Jan Juc and they did not want to lose their views, and due to this influx of new members the proposal was defeated. This proposal could still be revised in light of the adverse kicks in which the RACV is receiving. Cliff Winkler Torquay

Budget now and own tomorrow BY DARRYN JACOBS FINANCIAL PLANNER FROM COASTLINE FINANCIAL GROUP JUST as the government recently handed down the Federal Budget – its financial plan for the nation – now is a good time for people to take stock of their personal finances and establish a plan of their own.

businesses or individuals, setting a budget and sticking to it is vital. Without a budget there is no real way of knowing how much is left at the end of the week. Budgeting requires people to look ahead and consider their future goals. By establishing a budget, people can set financial goals and more easily monitor their expenses. After all, unless people take control of their finances, it could soon take control of them. Let’s look at a few things to consider when tackling a budget: • Always overestimate your expenditure for the next 12 months. It allows a buffer for price rises and increasing loan repayments • Ensure you either have an emergency fund or access to cash through a mortgage redraw facility as a contingency for life’s unexpected expenses • With rising property values, don’t just get a line of credit and use your house like a personal ATM machine. The life expectancy of a loan should reflect the life expectancy of the asset • Use a separate working account. It’s okay to use credit cards if you’re disciplined, but set aside money into the working account to cover fixed expenses like phone bills, rates and body corporate expenses. And don’t touch the working account – it’s not really your money • Save for the long-term goals first. People could consider saving 20 per cent for the long term for things like retirement funding and kids education and then save for the medium-term goals such as a deposit on a first home. Saving for the short term for things like end of

year holidays and Christmas presents should come last • Differentiate ‘wants’ and ‘needs’. Don’t be too hard on yourself, but do you really need the $100 per month cable TV package? You probably don’t watch half the programmes. Cars are big traps too. It’s nice to drive the latest and greatest, but don’t live for your car. Be sensible • Always reconcile your bank statements and credit card statements. Human error can cost you. It’s also a good way of tracking your spending habits. Once a person has successfully prepared a budget, the biggest and most important step is to be disciplined with the spending and stick to it. It is also very important for people to strategically use any excess funds in their budget to their best advantage. Depending on a person’s personal circumstances, and with the help of a financial planner, people may choose to reduce debt, create wealth through strategies such as managed funds and gearing, or salary sacrifice into super to boost their retirement nest egg. Having a budget puts people in control of their financial future and will enable them to own tomorrow. If you have any questions or need more information, phone Coastline Financial Group on 5263 3964.

Consumers going frugal TWO MONTHS ago, Reserve Bank Australia governor, Glenn Stevens, gave an unprecedented interview to David Koch on the Seven Network’s Sunrise programme. The relaxed and informal interview was a first for Stevens and was widely interpreted as an attempt to cool the property market. His warning to investors was unmistakeable; “I think it is a mistake to assume that a riskless, easy, guaranteed way to prosperity is just to be leveraged up into property. It isn’t going to be that easy”. Whilst being careful not to say that the Australian property market was in a bubble, it was obvious that Stevens was doing his utmost to discourage what he saw as speculative behaviour without “spooking the horses”. And it’s not just an overheating property market that keeps the RBA awake at night; it is increasingly acknowledging that private debt levels are getting dangerous. In a speech last week, Stevens

confirmed, that while public and corporate debt is relatively low compared to other countries, it is Australia’s household debt, which has now passed $1trillion largely due to rising house prices leading borrowers into larger loans, which has him concerned. And it appears households have been paying attention. The Westpac-Melbourne Institute consumer sentiment index had its largest two month fall since March 2008. Recent retail trade figures show sales were up 0.6 per cent in April compared to March though largely the result of aggressive discounting. It is lending data, however, that is genuinely alarming. ABS data shows that in April demand for new home loans fell to a nine-year low and finance commitments for owner-occupied housing fell 1.8 per cent. This is the lowest number of new loans for owner-occupiers since March 2001 and the seventh straight monthly fall in housing finance commitments. This does not bode well for house prices.

COALITION EDUCATION POLICY FOR TORQUAY In July 2009 as Shadow Minister for Education I announced the Baillieu-led Coalition’s policy for secondary education in Torquay. Key policy aspects include:  a $20 million commitment to provide full secondary education in Torquay  a new 7-12 secondary school on a 13 acre, green-field site in Torquay  enrolments will commence at this campus, beginning classes from 2012.

Why have we formed this policy:  to enable students to complete their secondary education within their own town  parents and students require the certainty and security provided by full secondary education  plans to expand Torquay College to P-9 by 2011 falls well short of community expectations  this secondary college will help students build local networks and sporting relationships. The Brumby Labor government and the Member for South Barwon have failed over the last 10 years to address this important issue. The Coalition has listened to the community, heard its needs, and now acts to deliver full secondary education at a stand-alone, green-field site in Torquay.

Wealth creation: What is that? BY LEANNE POCOCK FROM INVESTMENT BANKING INSTITUTE, GEELONG IN GEELONG last month there were two ‘wealth creation’ seminars. So what exactly are they? Is wealth creation a type of financial planning or some secret magic to making money? The words ‘wealth creation’ usually means ‘property investment’. Many people find property an attractive investment and that is why the wealth creation industry continues to grow. However, as every good accountant or financial planner will tell you, property is only part of your overall investment strategy and should be considered alongside a holistic wealth plan. Investors are people with money, or access to it via loans.

Investors want to increase their overall financial position over time and property is seen as an easy investment because you can see it, it is difficult but not impossible to lose or have it stolen from you and people understand it. But is property really an easy investment and does it meet your wealth creation needs? Property investment usually means a large upfront investment in stamp duty and other fees which make short term growth unlikely. Superannuation or investments may be more suited to meeting your financial goals and wealth creation strategies. The rules and regulations, however, keep moving and it can be difficult to understand all the changes. Financial planners are paid to keep abreast of the latest legislation and they offer a broader view of investments than simply property.

By maintaining a professional development programme they keep on top of moves in all areas of finance from social security payments, investments, insurance (risk management) to government regulations Time for a financial plan With all the change that has gone on in the past two years, when was the last time you had a financial plan done? With the end of the financial year nearby there couldn’t be a better time to see your planner. It has been reported recently that the demand for financial planners is on the rise. In response, the Investment Banking Institute ran the first ASIC approved Financial Services education course in Geelong to a full house last month. People who are undergoing the training include

It is that time of year again AUSTRALIAN Taxation Office commissioner, Michael D’Ascenzo, has reminded people to start thinking about preparing and lodging their 2010 tax return. “From 1 July, people can prepare and lodge their return online using e-tax, which is secure and easy to use,� he said. “Nearly 2.4 million people used e-tax last year – the quickest and easiest way to lodge. People who use e-tax will receive their notice of assessment and any refund due more quickly than paper returns.� E-tax also allows you to download information from a range of government departments and third party organisations directly into your

tax return, including: • Pensions and allowances • Payment summaries • Bank interest; and • Private health insurance details. You can also download net medical expenses from Medicare and Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) fees information. “The ATO website has plenty of information for those lodging their own tax return and e-tax has built-in calculators, guides and a check list to help people lodge correctly,â€? D’Ascenzo said. E-tax will be available to download free of charge from July 1 from www.ato.gov.au/etax

Government and third party information to pre-fill your return will be available to download progressively from July 1. You can subscribe to an alert service within e-tax which will let you know when your personal information becomes available. Other ways to lodge include using a TaxPack, with copies available from ATO shopfronts, newsagencies or the ATO website www.ato.gov.au from July 1. Returns can also be lodged through a tax agent, but remember, if you are lodging through a tax agent for the first time, or using a different agent from last year, you will need to contact your agent by October 31.

those looking for a career change into banking, financial planning or insurance or those undertaking professional development or people who want to learn for themselves what a financial planner does so that they can use the industry knowledge to increase their chances of securing true wealth. As financial planners gear up for the end of financial year, those students who complete the course will be ready to meet the demand and secure themselves jobs in the industry. There is only one certainty in investing though – change. Are you ready for it?

Inspiring school art GEELONG Lutheran College students have been inspired by award-winning sculptor, Ben Fasham, who unveiled his iconic masterpiece at Armstrong Creek last week. Fasham has created the six-metre ‘Conservation’ sculpture, which will mark the entrance to the region’s new residential community, Warralily. Geelong Gallery director, Geoffrey Edwards, joined Fasham and students of the local Lutheran college for an onsite art class, as the sculpture was being mounted at its new home on Barwon Heads Road. Edwards said the plate aluminium structure implied a conversation – the communication of ideas between people – making it a fitting signature for the new Warralily community. Geelong Lutheran College marketing manager, Rob Baker, said the school was excited to have the unique opportunity of taking part in the art talks with leading specialists in the sculpture art form.

Jack and Tahlia enjoy the school’s vegetable garden and are looking forward to the new community garden to be established at their new school.

A platform for success ANGLESEA Primary School is an exciting place to be. After many years in the planning, the new school building, sporting facilities and landscaped grounds are under way and a motivating 21st century learning programme is being introduced across all levels. Anglesea PS principal, Pamela Sandlant, the skilled teachers, families and the encouraging local community are focused on preparing students for the future and providing every opportunity for all children to succeed. An approach to teaching and learning, where students work to achieve their individual goals is

being implemented, with positive outcomes for students. However, the completion of the new, purpose-built school, on its greenfield site, will allow for the innovative learning programme to be further implemented with greater outcomes for students and the community. “Home group teachers will have a pastoral care role for their home group students but when it comes to learning, students could be working with other teachers who will best progress their education in each area,” Sandlant said. “We are already working towards a shift to empower children to have greater understanding of their learning needs and next year, in our

new school, we will be forging ahead with best teaching and learning practice.” The architecture of the new school is intended to be unique, with a focus on inspiring the students while accommodating 21st century learning. The new facilities are expected to open early in 2011 and will feature flexible learning spaces suitable for individualised and community learning, as well as outdoor learning spaces so students can embrace their surrounds. To meet with Pamela Sandlant to discuss enrolment opportunities for your 2011 Prep, contact the school on 5263 1231. Enrolments for 2011 are due by August 2.

Sculptor Ben Fasham met with Geelong Lutheran College students to inspire their own sculptures when ‘Conversation’ was installed at the entrance of the new Warralily residential community, .

Successful collaboration with architects and builders has resulted in outstanding design solutions for clients spanning a decade.

Stone Natural stones such as bluestone, slate, split stone and sandstone can be used both internally and externally to impressive effect. The Surf Coast landscape features eucalyptus greens, soft browns and sandy whites that are well represented in natural stones. Using stones can help bring the outdoors inside, making for indoor-outdoor living all year round. Lighting Subtle indirect sources of illumination, such as pelmet lighting are taking over from harsh overhead halogen lighting.

When is a security door not a security door?

IF YOU are looking for a security door and products for your home, it’s important to do some research and know that what you are buying will actually do the job you need it to. Independent tests undertaken by the University of New South Wales at the Australian Defence Force Academy have shown that many security doors in the market fail to meet even basic Australian Standards. The Australian Standard for security doors is pretty low, and to see how many doors failed this test was disappointing, as there are so many consumers that would have bought these products expecting that they would protect their homes. Crimsafe security doors and screens will actually protect your home and your family from intruders and would-be thieves. Crimsafe is the only security screen product in the world where the mesh is screwed into the frame and clamped down with a patented device called the ‘Screw-Clamp’. Every other security screen mesh in the world is held in place with a wedge forced in under pressure, or simply glued in. Any attempt to break through Crimsafe, like a burglar trying to kick it out of the frame, is defeated by the fact our screws are drilled through the mesh and into the other side of the frame with massive torque, forcing our patented clamp to bite down on the mesh to grip it in a near unbreakable hold. Crimsafe’s International Patents mean that other security screens simply can’t feature the same design or offer the same strength. The difference in performance between a Crimsafe screen and an ordinary security mesh product is huge. Crimsafe repels the physical assault a burglar or intruder would apply and Crimsafe resists attempts to cut through it like no other security screen. Crimsafe doors and screens will also help protect your home in a bushfire. Windows protected by Crimsafe mesh won’t permit floating embers to pass through and the intensity of radiant heat is

reduced by up to 45 per cent. And should debris fall against your window or door, the fact that Crimsafe is made from all metal fastenings means the mesh won’t break out of the frame. Brax Window Treatments have been Crimsafe licensed manufacturers since 1998 and in that time have seen many products that look similar come onto the market. Crimsafe has invested a lot in building its brand, and to now have test results that show that none of the competitor products are anywhere near as good means that we can confidently continue to manufacture and sell Crimsafe. To see the range of products, visit Geelong and district’s only licensed dealer, Brax Window Treatments, 332 Pakington Street, Newtown and remember “if it’s not Crimsafe, it’s not crim safe�.

Versatility in green designs WILLIAMS and Campion have designed a boutique range of handcrafted, recycled timber pieces with a unique but tasteful difference. The simplicity of their own designs allows the natural wild beauty of aged and weathered timbers to shine, creating timeless timber textures for interiors and exteriors. Creating fresh ways to use recycled timbers to accent residential and commercial spaces is their passion. They started out by stockpiling old timbers on a farm, just outside of Geelong. Their dream was to re-use the timbers that other people dumped at a waste site to fulfill the many designs they had stored away as they had travelled around the world and been inspired by the lines and curves of furniture from medieval through

to contemporary. Now what they dreamed of is a reality and they have a product range that fulfills their passion for design. While delving into the styles of yesteryear and giving them a fresh modern twist, they also have an eye to the future, reducing waste in a way that adds lasting beauty to the world around us. From furniture and French panel flooring to recycled timber claddings, Williams and Campion are the signature of versatile green designs, your designs, or theirs. They have a custom design and make service available along with consultations for individual styling. For more information, phone Williams and Campion on 5275 6360 or visit www.williamsandcampion.com.au

Big Shed’s Big History BEFORE it was a well-known furniture store, The Big Shed was just that – a big shed. One of Geelong’s original buildings, the century-old south Geelong shed was once home to a glass bottle manufacturer before becoming a storage and dispatch shed for a major wool company. During World War II the shed was used as emergency housing for American

soldiers and rumour has it their practice gun shots can still be seen on the walls. It was in 1980 when Colac-born John Dillon bought the shed and began a major furniture retail operation. Today The Big Shed is bigger and better than ever, offering something for everyone, including a raft of budget to mid-range furniture as well as second-hand

and antique goods. Dillon’s daughter, Shelley, was handed the reins of the family business and continues to provide customers with furniture options galore. Check out the stock at The Big Shed by dropping into the store on the corner of Carr and Fitzroy Streets, south Geelong or visit www.thebigshed.com.au

Not just your standard shed “FOR HEAVEN’S sake, don’t let the shed ruin the design aspects of the fantastic house you have just built. Why not spend a bit more time making sure the shed complements your hard earned dollars put towards the house,” says Steve Hope-Johnstone, of Galframe Building Systems in Geelong. “Our buildings are all steel framed with a construction bracket that can be set to any angle allowing you to build any shaped structure you like. “All we need is the end view shape and we take it from there. We offer a design lab and are prepared to draw your ideas, the cost of which forms part of the quotation. Our slogan is very appropriate being “Building Your Ideas.” The frame is a portal or clear span structure allowing the inside roof area to be utilised for additional storage or a complete mezzanine floor. Increasing the roof pitch allows you to create more space in the roof line if needed.

It saves having to make your shed or studio longer or wider at ground level. The process is easy. Either contact Galframe and request an obligation free on site appraisal to start putting some ideas together, or take you plans into their showroom at 34 Cowie Street, North Geelong, where you can see all the design options and materials available. Gone are the days of putting up a cheap shed; in the developing Surf Coast and Bellarine areas where new houses are all so different, why not design a building to incorporate the traditional shed with a studio, games room, storage facility on a mezzanine floor and boat storage – it just needs a bit of fore thought and design. Contact the team at Galframe, the process will be enjoyable and very helpful. The website offers many templates and ideas too, visit www.galframe.com

INVESTING in a thorough marketing campaign is the key to a successful sale, according to LJ Hooker Torquay franchise owner, Bill Nairn “Gone are the days when people would trawl around a suburb looking at homes on the basis of an obscure three-line description in their local newspaper,” Nairn said. “As Australia becomes a global powerhouse, buyers of property come from a couple of streets away, interstate and overseas. ”A strong, well-planned and executed marketing campaign plays an important role in getting the best possible sale price in the shortest possible time simply because it maximises the exposure a property receives and this usually translates to more bids or offers on the table. “LJ Hooker customers are exposed to a variety of different marketing strategies and budgets that could include display and classified advertisements in a variety of local and metro newspapers, signboards and internet advertising.”

Nairn said while buyers may still use newspapers as one of the steps in their property search, the internet is rapidly becoming an important platform. “The www.ljhooker.com website uses a Googlepowered search function that customers can easily use to find homes that match their very specific criteria,” he said. “Time poor buyers can also research the suburb or town online – finding out about the services available in the neighbourhood. “A special ‘compare’ tool even lists the key features of short-listed properties that have been identified by the user on one page – this certainly makes the job of choosing quick and easy.” Nairn said vendors who invest in professional photographs are usually well rewarded in this digital age we live in. “Online features today allow prospective buyers to ‘zoom in’ for more detail so high resolution photos with good lighting simply show the property to its best advantage,” he said.

WRECK OF THE ‘JOSEPH H SCAMMELL’ CONT.: Extracts from ‘History of Torquay’ by James A Baines 1938 A gang of laborers, with lorries, engaged by Captain Douglas, arrived at the scene at daylight on Monday to salvage cargo from the beach on behalf of the Underwriters, and at once set to work collecting the cargo from the beach and placing in it stacks, but they did not calculate on the extra high tide, which that night washed most of the salvage cargo back to the sea again. This tide also had the affect of turning one half of the vessel bottom up. During the same night the mainmast and several of the spars floated ashore, andwere landed nearly high and dry on the beach. The work of salvaging was continued throughout Tuesday. Portions of the bow of the ship was washed ashore at the mouth of Bream Creek, and a quantity of the cargo drifted onto the beach in the same locality.

Home Owners and Investors

Dear Home Owner/Investor, Property values on the Surf Coast and particularly Torquay and Jan Juc have risen dramatically in recent times. Residents we have spoken to are most interested to know the current value of their properties as this allows them to pursue other financial initiatives or to ensure that their homes are adequately insured. To assist our local residents we are conducting an exciting new initiative. Over the next three (3) months we will be offering our opinion on the value of every home in the area. Each appraisal will only take approximately 10-15 minutes, as we hope to complete one street per day.

What you will receive    

      

How do you participate?  Â?Â?Â?Â? ­ €‚  Â?€ 0437 882 088 or 5261 2101 – patrickh@hayden.com.au Strict confidentiality will be adhered to for each property. We look forward to your participation and to meeting with you.

BATHROOM TRENDS GUARANTEED TO ADD VALUE & Style When a site has extensive and impressive views, one of the hardest decisions to make is which rooms should be oriented to enjoy the view and which should miss out. Bathrooms these days are places of sanctuary; people live increasingly busy lives and want to come home to a haven where they feel soothed and relaxed. Design magazines and television programs have expanded people’s awareness of what is available. Clients are discerning and savvy, they value individuality in their home and are looking for the WOW factor. Some tips to consider when designing your bathroom are;            design of a room; this is an effective way to make it seem larger than it actually is.          only a single window, improving the light and

limiting the materials and colours will make an immediate difference to the perception of space.         bring a fresh, timeless quality to the room       to the minimalist effect               shower, to increase the impression of space       the impression they are floating. Combined with large mirrors, this approach is another way to provide visual space.            illusion of space.

Cavalier’s top employee LOCAL employee Kerry Miers has taken out the hotly contested Cavalier Homes Regional Salesperson of the Year award. With 68 Cavalier Homes builders in Australia and New Zealand – many in country areas – the title of Regional Salesperson of the Year is hard to win. “Kerry goes above and beyond to make the building experience hassle-free and enjoyable,” said Lisa and Rob Clarke, owners of Cavalier Homes West Coast. Andrew and Tara Kimberley, recent customers of Cavalier Homes West Coast, agree. “The win is well deserved. Kerry is so approachable and friendly, she goes out of her way to help and to keep you informed,” said Andrew. “Kerry will source the perfect block of land for

customers and work with them to select or custom design a house plan that fits with their lifestyle,” said Lisa Clarke. “Kerry then skillfully guides customers through what can be a mind boggling array of choice when choosing colour schemes, fixtures and fittings.” Cavalier Homes has built its reputation on offering the service, expertise and commitment of a local builder, combined with the backing of a major national construction company. If you’re planning a new home or just need some advice about the possibilities, contact Kerry and the team at Cavalier Homes West Coast on 5243 6521. To view the new design range, visit the two Cavalier Homes display homes at 25-27 Longshore Street, The Quay Estate, Torquay.

Thomas to launch festival BY NATHAN HALE QUEENSCLIFF Music Festival will kick off this year’s celebrations with the annual fundraiser next week. The Town Hall will play host to music from renowned performers Mick Thomas and Colin Hay, as well as from outstanding teenage outfit The Rustys. The evening will be held on Friday, June 25, from 7pm and apart from outstanding music from some of the country’s most enduring talents and emerging artists, there will also be a number of key fundraising ventures for this year’s festival. Key auction items for the evening will include a 2009 poster and a 2009 t-shirt, which have both been signed by all of last year’s festival artists. For Thomas, his appearance will be a type of homecoming after he grew up in Geelong. “I am really looking forward to getting back to Queenscliff,â€? Thomas said. “I have probably played the festival three or four times and along with the fundraiser I will also be back in November for the festival. “What’s great about the Queenscliff Music Festival is that it mixes different generations of musicians; Colin Hay is from a different generation to us and then you have the next generation of performers as well. “Often us older guys all get lumped into the ‘older musicians’ category, but it is nice to actually get out and meet different people from different eras.â€? While festivals are now no longer as exclusive as they once were, Thomas said Queenscliff has stood the test of time – and would continue to do so. “There has been a real explosion of festivals‌ and you now have some people

who call them festivals but they are really just little gatherings,â€? he said. “Queenscliff does a really good job – and always has. The town really gets behind the festival and because it is such a great town to visit, it will always be a strong festival.â€? Thomas’ last visit to Queenscliff was in 2006, when he took to the stage with his old band, Weddings Parties Anything. This year, Thomas will be joined by his band, Sure Thing. Prior to November’s festival, Thomas will hit the road with his drummer, Anglesea-based Michael Barclay, for an intimate tour. Thomas has also been proactively exploring new marketing opportunities as he embraces technology and adapts to the way people now listen to and purchase music. “I have set up a subscription on my website where people can join and pay a monthly fee and each month they receive new tracks, different bits of music and this and that, really,â€? Thomas said. “It has been really well received and it is a way of getting music out to people without the delay in recording an album. “I can finish working on something and then the next day I can have it out through the website. “There has been a quantum shift in society and the younger generation is totally into downloads, which is why I have set up the subscription on the website. “But that doesn’t mean I am not going to do albums‌ I am already thinking about my next CD and I will probably work on a new one next year.â€? This year’s festival will be held from November 26-28, with a limited release of early bird tickets already on sale. For more information on the fundraiser evening and the festival, visit www.qmf.net.au

Festival favourite Mick Thomas will be one of the star attractions at the fundraiser.

Film Friday coming up SURF Coast Film Society will host the latest offering from its monthly screenings this Friday night. The Egyptian offering Hadota Misreya, An Egyptian Story, will screen at Torquay’s Spring Creek Community House from 7.30pm. The 1982 film in Arabic is part of the Alexandria Trilogy series and picks up the story of Yehia, a troubled adolescent boy headed for prosperity in America as World War II ravaged his Egyptian homeland. Yehia, now a draconian film director who neglects his wife and children in order to create his work, falls ill and requires open-heart surgery. During the operation a young boy, representing Yehia’s conscience, accuses him of betraying his ideals. A metamorphic trial ensues in which various witnesses, including family and colleagues, offer their testimony about ‘the defendant’. These proceedings force the filmmaker to come to terms with hidden emotions involving his life, work and country. Director Youssef Chahine’s work examines the politics of the 1952 revolution and its demise in 1967, as well as the frissons that arise as he tries to reconcile his art with his ambitions.

Say Hola to Growlers FRESH from a successful Frenchthemed evening last month, Growlers is continuing its European tour with a taste of Spain. The Spanish evening will be held next Wednesday, June 23, and will include fine Spanish fare and wines, as well as live entertainment and who knows, you might even end up doing some flamenco dancing! The entertainment will be provided by Keiran Ray – an accomplished performer with more than two decades of experience under his belt. Since 1990, Ray has performed professionally as a soloist and in numerous ensembles, playing flamenco and classical guitar. After completing tertiary study in classical guitar at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music in 1996, he went to Spain to study flamenco guitar. Kieren was a student of various distinguished teachers and performers in Seville, Jerez, Madrid and Cordoba, including Carlos Heredia, Rafael Riqueni, Jose Luis Monton, Paco

Serrano, Enrique de Melchor, Manolo Sanlucar and Carles Benevant. These studies explored traditional and contemporary styles in solo, song and dance accompaniment, and composition. Ray has toured and performed extensively throughout Australia, playing at major festivals and in national concert halls, and his music has been broadcast on national and local radio and television, including the ABC and SBS. In 1994, Ray began collaborating with dancer Nella Randone, and this association has inspired a substantial collection of Flamenco Dance Theatre productions, featuring original choreographies and compositions. Ray has performed and recorded with Australia’s most prominent flamenco guitarists, dancers and singers. For more information on the evening or to book tickets, phone Growlers on 5264 8455. Flamenco guitarist Kieran Ray will play live at the Spanish night.

INTRODUCING the new ‘One Planet’ range of quality wines committed to an ethos of ‘reducing, recycling and renewing’, using the environmentally sustainable Tetra Prisma Pak packaging concept. The One Planet brand was created with the primary aim of minimising the carbon footprint of a wine product at every stage of its lifecycle. The package itself is a convenient and environmentally sustainable Tetra Prisma Pak (WinePak), that weighs only 10.5 kilograms per dozen instead of the average glass bottle dozen weight of around 16-18kg per dozen – a pretty dramatic figure that significantly reduces freight driven carbon emissions. Consider this, it takes 26 semi-trailers to deliver 1million empty wine bottles; by comparison, it would only take one semi-trailer to deliver 1million flat One Planet winepaks. The obvious advantages of this quality focused product in specialised markets such as airlines, cruise ships, rail, and outdoor events are evidently the key targets for the marketers, but there is a growing demand out there from people who wish to make an environmentally friendly choice when buying their wine. However, the quality must stack up – and with the One Planet wines, it does. I asked myself: “Is there a future for premium quality wine using this approach and technology?”

Absolutely, I decided, which reminded me of when a group of like-minded producers from the Clare Valley (sick of the negative comments regarding their Rieslings and corks), banded together in 2002 to release their Rieslings under screw cap closure (ground breaking at the time). This fundamentally changed the wine landscape to a point where these days, screw cap closures are the norm whilst corks are on the endangered list. I believe such a thing could happen here if like-minded producers of popular wine brands start to release wines like the One Planet format. Imagine if you could get wines like Shaw & Smith Sauvignon Blanc, Petaluma Riesling, Pepperjack Shiraz, or Yalumba’s ‘The Scribbler’ Cabernet Shiraz in a wine pak… that would be fantastic. One Planet works with well known winemakers to source premium parcels of regional wines to partner with their brand. The inaugural releases of the One Planet wines see a Sauvignon Blanc from the highly acclaimed Adelaide Hills region made by the talented Sarah Fletcher – winemaker for Alta Vineyards. The red is a McLaren Vale Shiraz made by winemaking wiz Tim Burvill of Rockbare and Mojo fame. At One Planet, the philosophy is simple; they believe ‘everyone can make a difference’…can you?

‘One Planet’ Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc Wine Pak 2009 ($15)

‘One Planet’ McLaren Vale Shiraz Wine Pak 2008 ($15)

Fresh, vibrant, racy and savvy that shows all the crunchy-ness and tropical fruit expression you expect from this variety and region. The lively natural acidity and complex aromatics all add up to a very pleasurable wine experience. Bravo!

You definitely know you’re drinking a red from McLaren Vale here. It’s seductively intense with ripe, juicy, dense dark cherries to the fore with a soft, velvety underbelly of richness fleshing out the mouth-feel. More complex choc/spice nuances round out a fine first offering. Great value and very yum.

Warm your winter with festival fun

WINTER has arrived in full force so what better time to launch this year’s Reflections Scarf Festival. Now in its second year at Geelong’s National Wool Museum, the festival hosts a packed programme with places now open for the ever-popular workshops. This year’s festival will open this Friday and run through until July 25. “Craft lovers should go to www.nwm. vic.gov.au to download their copy of the programme from the museum website and avoid disappointment by booking early,� said City of Greater Geelong Portfolio Holder for Arts and Culture, councillor Barbara Abley. “With an extensive programme of workshops and events, there’s something crafty on offer for all abilities and all ages. “Crocheting, felting, handspinning, French knitting and sewing – all the traditional crafts are covered, as well as some not so traditional such as decorative ropework, three-dimensional shibori and felting onto silk. “In response to feedback from last year’s Scarf Festival, workshops are being offered on Tuesdays, Thursdays and also Saturdays and Sundays.

“In addition, there are children’s craft workshops being presented almost every day during the June-July school holidays.� In addition to the workshops, the Festival also features an eclectic collection of original handcrafted scarves created to reflect the maker’s own unique artistic heritage. “About 250 scarves from all over Australia and overseas have been submitted to The National Wool Museum, including scarves from as far afield as India and New Zealand. All scarves will be on display in the exhibition and most are available for purchase,� said Abley. “This year there will be 12 different award categories including Scarf of the Year, Best Thematic Scarf, Best Felted Scarf and Best Scarf Made Using Sustainable Practices. “Young craft enthusiasts are also encouraged to participate, with special awards for the Best Scarf Made by a 12 Year Old or Younger and Best Scarf Made by a 13-18 Year Old.� For further information, or to book a place in one of the festival workshops, telephone 5272 4701 or email scarffestival@geelongcity.vic.gov.au

Anglesea Music Festival takes shape Tuesday 15 June 2010

THE SECOND installment of this year’s Anglesea Live will be held this Friday night at the Anglesea Hotel. A host of up and coming amateur acts will perform on the evening, with established local stars Tiffany Eckhardt and Dave Steel the special guests. Anglesea Live began more than 10 years ago from an idea instigated by local musician, Karren Stoneham, who along with other local artist and performers wanted to provide the opportunity for musicians of all ages and genres to perform in front of an audience. Following the continued success of Anglesea Live, Stoneham and her committee have now established the Anglesea Music Festival. To be held over the weekend of October 8, 9 and 10, the festival will showcase some of the best local bands on offer, as well as mixing in some talented artists from across the country. Venues for the festival will include the Youth Marquee/main tent located on the Geelong side of the Anglesea River, next to the Lions Park; the Anglesea Hotel; and Sea Eyes Cafe and other partner restaurants and cafes in and around the shopping centre on the Great Ocean Road. Venue 1: Main tent and Youth Marquee – Geelong side of the Anglesea River

Venue 2: Anglesea Hotel, Great Ocean Road – next to shopping centre and river Venue 3: Sea Eyes CafÊ, Shopping Centre – under the clock in central Anglesea Other venues to be confirmed will include cafes and other approved locations. The festival will provide a community bus to assist with local transport needs during the three days which has been generously provided by the Anglesea Hotel and will be driven by approved volunteers. The AMF bus will operate from the Anglesea Hotel and provide transport around venues and safe transport to selected destinations on Friday and Saturday night, with pick up and drop off points clearly signed and marked. Already, the festival has secured the following artists: The Band That Knew Too Much, Chris Wilson, Dave Steel, Tiffany Eckhardt, The Sweethearts, Mojo Corner, Tony Johannsen and the Land of Plenty, Chubby Rae and the Elevators, Marisa Quigley, Wayne Jury, Stringybark McDowells, Los Locos, Sunset Dukes, Suspicious Aloysius, Mystique, Mangy Black Dogs and Jessey Jackson.

New exhibition for Queenscliff

Tuesday 15 June 2010

QUEENSCLIFF’S Salt Contemporary will host the first solo exhibition of young Kimberley artist Lloyd Kwilla. The exhibition – titled Jumuwarnti, which translates to many waterholes – opened on the weekend and will run through until June 30 at the Hesse Street store. Kwilla is the son of leading painter, Billy Thomas, and the 30-year-old has been one of the

Kimberley region’s rising stars. Since he started painting in 2003, Kwilla has held sell-out exhibitions in London and Darwin and enjoyed glowing accolades for his exhibitions in Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth. Now for this, his first solo exhibition in Victoria, Kwilla has created an entirely new and fresh body of works on the theme jumuwarnti (many waterholes).

Lloyd Kwilla, Kulyayi Waterhole, 2010, natural ochre and pigment on canvas.

Kwilla supports his wife and family of five children through sales of his art and is also heavily involved in community issues of his Wangkatjungka community near Fitzroy Crossing, WA, as community supervisor, council chair and in his work at the local school. A fluent English speaker and traditional Kimberley man, Kwilla is most eloquent about his culture, country and community issues. Art writer, publisher and curator, Susan McCulloch, who is co-presenting the exhibition describes Kwilla as an “inspirational artist and a role model for young Aboriginal men�. “I’ve been following Lloyd’s career since he started painting in 2003 and have seen his work go from strength to strength.� she said. “Each of this new body of work offers an entirely fresh perspective on the classic themes of water and fire and include works of impressive scale and intricate mapping as well as those of breathtaking minimalism. “It's also quite inspirational to meet a young man who’s keeping tradition alive for his own children and working so positively for his people. “Lloyd’s a great ambassador for a whole new generation of outback Aboriginal artists.� To see the exhibition, visit Salt Contemporary at 33-35 Hesse Street, Queenscliff, or for more information phone 5258 3988.

Spiegel set for Deans Marsh ONE OF Australia’s most talented blues artists, Lloyd Spiegel, will warm up for his approaching national tour with a special one-off performance at the Martian’s Café in Deans Marsh this Saturday. Spiegel, who has earned a reputation as one of the most talented guitarists, has continued to develop and is now also highly respected as a composer and lyricist. His performance at Deans Marsh on Saturday, starting at 8pm, will see him play songs from his new and long-awaited studio album, Tangled Brew. The album is a change in direction for Spiegel, which sees him draw on the inspiration gained from spending 20 of his 30 years on blues stages around the world. The result of a lifetime on the road, Spiegel’s eighth album sees him pushing his own vast musical boundaries and proves him to be far more than a straight-up acoustic blues guitarist. The 12 original tracks shift the focus towards Spiegel’s song writing, while still delivering the hard hitting, unapologetic guitar performance fans have come to expect. Tangled Brew balances his raw energy and strong connection to the blues with innovative grooves and instrumentation that re-invents his music and the genre as a whole. Spiegel enlisted the talents of percussionist Arunachala for the recording of the album. Formally of Western Australia’s premier blues band, Blue

Shaddy, Arun’s expertise and use of world music instruments have added an extra dimension to Spiegel’s sound, providing the missing link in he has been searching for. Individual tracks Blade and The Man That I Was were arranged for strings by composer Ruth Roshan and feature past and present members of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Tangled Brew will be released this month and distributed through Black Market Music, while Spiegel will commence his national tour this month. Since going solo in 1995, Spiegel has performed in Australia’s premier music venues from The Palace and The Basement to The HiFi Bar as well as headlining two sellout shows at the world renowned Melbourne Concert Hall. In that time, he’s been billed with the likes of The Waifs, Cold Chisel and Billy Thorpe. During his career, Lloyd has also been awarded the following honours: • Australian Blues Award, Band Of The Year 2005 • Victorian Blues Award, Band/Solo Artist Of The Year 2004 • Victorian Blues Award, Song Of The Year 2004 • Victorian Blues Award, Male Artist Of The Year 2004 • Official Ambassador To The Australian Blues Festival 2005/2006. For more information on Spiegel, visit his website at www.lloydspiegel.com

Museum delivers rare Xmas gifts to Geelong THE NATIONAL Wool Museum will provide a peek behind the doors of one of Melbourne’s rare artistic jewels when it hosts the exhibition Christmas Creations for Mr Johnston – by Geelong Artisans. The exhibition features the work of more than 200 Geelong region artists and craftspeople who provided the exquisite hand-made decorations for the popular 2009 Christmas exhibition at Melbourne’s prestigious Johnston Collection. The Johnston Collection is based at Fairhall, the residence of the late antique dealer and collector William Johnston (1911-1986). The array of Georgian, Regency and Louis XV fine and decorative arts and antiquities, coupled with the museum’s strict limits on visitor numbers, makes the Johnston Collection one of the most highly sought-after museums and galleries in Melbourne. More than 200 artists from nine Geelong

organisations provided the decorations for last year’s annual Christmas at the Johnston Collection exhibition. Christmas Creations for Mr Johnston – by Geelong Artisans is the opportunity for the many people who missed out on seeing the exhibition in Melbourne, to see the decorations and celebrate our local artists’ fine work. The exhibition features works by the Embroiderers Guild, Victoria (Geelong Branch), Coastal Textile Artists, Geelong CWA, Geelong and District Porcelain Painters Inc, Geelong Patchworkers and Quilters’ Guild, Geelong Textile and Associated Artists Inc, Leopold Lacemakers, The Third Wednesday Group and the Trolly Dolly Cloth Doll Club Inc. The exhibition will be on display at the National Wool Museum, 26 Moorabool Street, Geelong, until August 29th.

IF YOU are a knitter, can crochet, or maybe felt, Torquay’s Beanie Festival is for you. The festival will be held from July 23 to August 1 and will display a host of creations from local people. Anyone can enter a creation to be displayed over the 10 days. The emphasis should be on colour, warmth, and if possible a highly creative or even zany design. Beanies can be any size from infant to adult, and they will be displayed at Central Torquay. In the lead-up to the festival, why not join one of the following craft groups: Beaut Beanies, from 10.30am Tuesdays at the Uniting Church, 27 Anderson Street, Torquay, Spring Creek Craft Group, from 10.30am Wednesday at Spring Creek House, 14 Prince Street, Torquay, or Pear Tree Knit Group, from 7pm Wednesdays at the Pear Tree CafÊ, 7 Gilbert Street, Torquay.

Free Ocean Grove session A FREE information session on acquired brain injury and associated support services will be held in Ocean Grove next month. The information evening, to be held on Friday, July 2 at the Bellarine Aquatic and Sports Centre from 6pm-7.30pm, will provide helpful tips and advice for those who have been affected by acquired brain injury, or for those who care for someone with an ABI. Services include information and education about brain injury and associated disabilities, counselling, adjustment and rehabilitative strategies, behaviour assessment and intervention, family therapy, and service linkage. Psychologists with many years of experience

will attend the session to answer questions about ABI and services available in the region. Acquired brain injuries can be caused through head trauma, stroke, brain tumour, infection, alcohol or substance abuse, lack of oxygen, epilepsy or other neurological conditions. The consequences can include physical impairments, changes in thinking, memory and personality. The session is being conducted by not-for-profit organisation, Diverge Consulting, courtesy of a funding grant from ANZ Trustees. Anyone wishing to attend or looking for further information can contact Suzanne Brown at Diverge on 0488 992 721 or email info@diverge.org.au

Dispelling the flu shot myth NEARLY one in five Australians will not get the flu shot this year, because they incorrectly believe it will give them the flu, according to the GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Health Index released last week. The latest GSK Health Index surveyed 1,006 Australians investigating their attitudes and behaviours regarding flu and found Australians are not only skipping the shot because they incorrectly think they can get the flu from it, but 40 per cent don’t see it as a priority, and 38 per cent don’t believe in the flu shot. “This is one of the most common myths associated with the flu shot,� said Dr Camilla Chong, Medical Director at GSK. “The fact is you cannot get influenza from the flu shot because the virus contained in it cannot cause infection. “The mild flu-like symptoms people experience after a flu shot (such as some soreness and redness at the site and mild fever or aches) are, in fact, the signs your body is hard at work mounting a response to protect you against the virus.� The survey also found men could be left out in the cold this winter with one in five women admitting they are prepared to kick their partner out of bed if they have the flu. Of those surveyed, 73 per cent of women said they are likely to avoid kissing if they have the flu and 61 per cent avoid intimacy. Men reported avoidance rates of 63 per cent for kissing and 47 per cent for intimacy. These results suggest women may be more pro-active in taking steps to reduce the likelihood of spreading the flu virus. This is particularly important in the first two to three days after flu symptoms first appear because this when the virus

is most contagious. Good personal hygiene is another important means of preventing the flu and approximately two out of three (62 per cent) adults report practising good habits, such as not sharing utensils/towels/ drink containers, avoiding cooking and refraining from close contact with loved ones. “Continuing to think about changing routine behaviours during acute illness would aid in stopping the spread within a family,â€? Chong said. Australian workplaces are not immune to the impacts of the flu, with the GSK Health Index also revealing: • Two thirds of Australians (65 per cent) avoid their colleagues at work who have the flu • Nine in 10 Australians agree that employers should send home workers who have the flu • Almost one in three (29 per cent) Australians nominated work as the environment putting them most at risk of catching the flu. “Now winter is here it is important for all Australians to remain vigilant against unnecessary exposure to the influenza virus and practice preventative measures to limit its spread,â€? Chong said. Despite the fact 12 per cent of Australians believe there’s nothing you can do to prevent the flu there are some preventative steps that people should consider: • Consider a flu shot (and always talk to your doctor or nurse about the benefits and risks of any vaccination) • Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze • Practice good personal hygiene • Don’t share personal items • Keep surfaces clean • Avoid close contact with others.

Be a man about it this week THIS week is Men’s Health Week and throughout the nation men are being encouraged to face any home truths about their health. Clinical adviser to beyondblue: the national depression initiative, associate professor Michael Baigent is urging men to ‘be a man about it’ in regard to drinking habits, and if they need help, have the courage to ask for it. “Men who drink a lot of alcohol need to think about why they’re drinking and ask themselves if they may have depression or an anxiety disorder,� Baigent said. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health problem in Australia – with one in five men likely to experience an anxiety disorder at some stage in their lives and one in eight men experiencing depression. “A big problem for men is that they will often use alcohol to try to make themselves feel better about their problems – including mental health problems,� Baigent said. “Drinking out of necessity to cope with the symptoms of depression or anxiety is a dangerous pattern to fall into and can set men up to become problem drinkers. “If they’re anxious about dealing with social situations, they may drink for ‘Dutch courage’ and they’re likely to drink more so they can ‘loosen up’ in order to cope. “You don’t have to be caught in a cycle of drinking trying to wipe out your feelings. If you talk to a doctor, you can

get help for the underlying depression or anxiety disorder and your drinking – but you have to be honest about how much you drink and how you feel. “Although it may be more difficult to treat depression or anxiety if alcohol dependence is present, there can still be some improvements. “However, we know that response rates to depression and anxiety treatments improve if alcohol dependence is also treated. Both can be, and ideally should be, addressed at the same time.� Chief executive officer of beyondblue, Leonie Young, said it is well known that men will not share their problems and rarely go to doctors for advice. “We know from research that men tend to put off seeing a doctor if they’re not feeling well and sometimes think they can make themselves feel better by drinking,� she said.

“This week, with its focus on men’s health, I encourage men to talk to a mate about their health and wellbeing and if they’re not travelling too well, ring the beyondblue info line 1300 224 636, visit the beyondblue website or see their general practitioner. “Men need not feel ashamed or embarrassed to talk about their mental health. Depression and anxiety are illnesses, not weaknesses or character flaws, and with the right treatment – most people recover. Looking after yourself means you will be in better shape to look after others.� For more information about Men’s Health Week, visit www. menshealthweek.com.au To find out more about the signs and symptoms of depression and anxiety disorders, and available support, visit www.beyondblue.org.au

Do you see the light? IF YOU haven’t noticed, the winter weather is well and truly upon us and it is bitterly cold and dark outside – especially at 6.30 in the morning! The cold weather makes it easier to stay indoors and with that we tend to eat more, watch more television and generally become less active. Before you realise it, it is spring and you have suddenly put on a few extra kilograms and your clothes don’t fit as well as they did a few months back! Although it might be very cold and dark in the mornings and evenings at the moment, June 21 – next Monday – is the winter solstice, which symbolises the shortest day of the year in the southern hemisphere. What this means is that after this date the days start to get longer and each day gets a little lighter. As we start to turn the corner and the warmer weather gets that bit closer, this could be a date you mark to start your spring/summer exercise programme. If you are disciplined enough and aren’t afraid to get out of bed a little bit earlier early in the morning, rug up, put the gloves on and go for a 30-minute power walk or 30-minute jog.

If you can do this four times a week you will notice how different you will start to feel and if you do nothing else but this you will lose weight. Apart from being up with the birds there are many advantages of exercising early in the morning before breakfast including: • Feeling energised for the rest of the day • Burning extra fat cells as you will use fat as your main energy source • Boosting your metabolism across the day • Finishing work knowing that all you exercise is done for the day and you are able to go home and have a glass of wine without the guilt! Make sure that if you do exercise early in the mornings that you have appropriate clothing which allows you to wear layers that you can remove easily once you get warm. Also make sure that you incorporate a five-minute warm up as it is easier to injure yourself when your muscles are asked to work when they are cold.

PUBLIC NOTICE

C37 Sets a Line Now: 2040 Provides a Process for the Future On Thursday 1 June, Council received a letter from Planning Minister Justin Madden, confirming Planning Amendment C37 had been approved. The Amendment was incorporated into the Surf Coast Planning Scheme on 10 June.

Surf Coast Shire Council Position Surf Coast Shire Council acknowledges the Planning Minister’s decision to set a settlement boundary 1km west of Duffields Rd. This differs from Council’s position that no new residential growth areas beyond those previously earmarked in Torquay North would be flagged before the end of the 2040 Project.

The Minister’s letter says that land 1km west of Duffields Rd, identified in the Planning Scheme as Future Urban Growth Area “is now within the coastal settlement boundary�.

Importantly, through the 2040 process, the community now has the opportunity to set the direction for land beyond this boundary that has previously been marked for potential urban growth.

The Minister says in the letter:

2040 Provides a Process for the Future

“I expect that the Torquay Jan Juc 2040 Study will establish a firm and unbroken boundary ‌â€? “I accept the independent panel findings that there is merit in confirming the “vâ€? line (1km west of Duffields Road) as the settlement boundary‌ and working to clarify the nature of true sustainable development within this ‘future urban growth area’. “I expect that when defining the western coastal settlement boundary that the history of planning in the Spring Creek corridor will be considered. I will require rigorous justification for any fundamental shift in planning for the Spring Creek corridor, specifically for the Future Urban Growth Area identified in the Torquay Jan Juc Framework Plan ‌â€? Minister Madden has previously also said: “A further amendment will be needed to rezone this land before it can be developed and any further designation of land for future urban growth beyond the first kilometer would need to be established through the Torquay Jan Juc 2040 Project.â€?

surfcoasttimes.com.au

So what does this mean for the 2040 study? Council has noted the Planning Minister’s expectations and heard clearly the community views about the future of the Spring Creek Valley. 2040 will enable Council and the Community to consider:     development on the land within1km west of Duffields Rd between now and 2025?  

   further west, currently noted as “potential urban growth corridorâ€?? This conversation can take on board issues including:           anticipated effect of Armstrong’s Creek and growth in Torquay North)       and housing requirements – including those of local residents wanting to move to a different style of housing    green breaks and the relationship with Bellbrae.

Hearing of Submissions C55 Aireys Inlet Urban Design Guidelines Council’s Submissions Committee will meet to hear submitters to the C55 Aireys Inlet Urban Design Guidelines The meeting will start at 5pm on Wednesday 16 June 2010, in the Council Chambers, 25 Grossmans Rd Torquay. Bunnings Planning Permit (Application No. 10/0144 - 1 Beacon Bvd, Torquay)

Council’s Submissions Committee will meet to hear submitters to the Bunnings Planning Permit application. The meeting will start at 6:30pm on Wednesday 30 June 2010, in the Council Chambers, 25 Grossmans Rd Torquay.

June Ordinary Council Meeting Council advises that its June Ordinary Meeting will be held at 6pm on Wednesday 23 June 2010, in the Council Chamber, 25 Grossmans Rd Torquay.

Special Meetings of Council

Torquay’s Future Growth C37 Sets a Line Now

Upcoming Meetings

Message from the Mayor: “Planning amendment C37 does a number of things including improving vegetation conservation and the character of urban design in Torquay and Jan Juc. “Council acknowledges the Minister’s position in relation to setting the western boundary at       forward with our community to define future land use; how this development within the boundary 1km west of Duffields Road will look and feel; and how Torquay and Jan Juc will address growth pressure into the future. Â?Â? Â?  Â? ­  €‚ Surf Coast Shire Council’s attention is focused on community involvement in our future through Torquay Jan Juc 2040 and the opportunity to consider in more detail the town’s long term future. “The 2040 project is your opportunity to have a say on what Torquay and Jan Juc will look like in the future, how it might develop, and the sort of legacy we leave our children on the Surf Â?      ƒ - Cr Libby Coker, Mayor

Â?   Â? „Â… Council is available on Council’s website – www.surfcoast.vic.gov.au)

MOON RIVER WEEKLY STARS JUNE 15-21, 2010

This week’s stars encourage being impulsive in love (which is an Aries specialty!) Rams fall in love very quickly, and are notorious for sudden elopements and shotgun weddings. A little less haste (in all your relationships) will lead to less long-term regrets. Mars and Pluto give you an energy boost mid-week, when well-considered action will take you far.

�„ …� � †�  ‡ˆ€€ €�

Librans are fabulous flirters and, with vampy Venus moving into fiery flamboyant Leo, it’s time to give those charisma muscles a workout. Do you want more love and success in your life? Well flutter those eyelashes (or flex those abs) and you shall receive! Networking and joint ventures are also favoured – especially mid-week.

Bulls, have you been too tough on a loved one? A change of attitude will help you see things from their point of view. Lady Luck is on your side mid-week, whereas Saturday’s an unpredictable day when you’ll have to keep your adaptability muscles well flexed. Sunday’s all about love and romance, as you cuddle up close with someone special.

With Venus, Jupiter and Uranus all in your work zones, your professional life is about to become extremely interesting. Some Scorpios can expect a promotion or improved conditions, while others will just be very busy. Love and work could also combine in romantic and totally unexpected ways (is that cupid I see hiding behind your desk?)

With Venus in your neighbourhood zone, there are many benefits to be gained through contacts within your local community. So your motto for the moment is ‘Think global, act local’. There’ll be plenty of opportunities to exchange nail-biting news but be careful about passing on information that was given to you in strict confidence.

Sagittarians are spontaneous folk but don’t overdo it, especially on Friday, when you could suffer (again!) from ‘foot-in-mouth syndrome’. Think carefully before you speak, otherwise you’ll just upset work colleagues or loved ones with your unique brand of truth serum. Put aside time to nurture (and enjoy) your overseas connections.

€ ���‡�  „ � ƒ�€„��� 

endota spa torquay

‰ Š‹ sip into endota spa torquay �Œƒ�Žƒ ­ 

Don’t get stuck in a depressing domestic rut! Jupiter and Uranus urge you to shake things up as you move, renovate, redecorate, change who you live with, or welcome some unexpected guests. Saturn amps up your perfectionist side on Saturday and it will be impossible for anyone (including yourself) to meet your absurdly high expectations.

Have you been running around like a Lion on steroids? Perhaps it’s time to slow down, as you re-discover your inner child and throw yourself into fun projects that make your heart sing. Venus (planet of love and beauty) shimmies into your sign this week so get ready for a charisma boost, as others find your luscious Leo charms hard to resist!

With Venus now in your relationship zone (until July 10) you’re in the mood for companionship and cooperation (for a change). Independent projects are temporarily out; and cosy collaboration is in. Just remember – the secret to Aquarian wedded bliss is mental compatibility. Some singles are set to go on a wild romantic ride!

Don’t spend so much time weighing up options – and worrying about work – that you lose motivation and momentum. With Mars marching through your sign, it’s all systems go! Your quote for the week is from Donald Trump (born on June 14) “What separates the winners from the losers is how a person reacts to each new twist of fate.�

Prepare to be at your sexy best as Mars charges through your partnership zone. So it’s time to up the sizzle factor and make your (neglected?) spouse feel extra special. Single Pisceans – don’t sit around passively waiting for your soul mate to magically appear. You need to be passionately proactive as you go out on the prowl, looking for love.

Don’t let nebulous self-doubts drag you down. Stressing about something that may happen in the future is not the sensible way to go. Use your common sense to work on practical projects so you can move forwards in a positive new direction. No side-stepping Crabs! If you have to make a big decision, let your intuition be your guide.

$25m for Skilled THE FUTURE of Geelong’s Skilled Stadium has been given a massive boost after the State Government last week announced it will invest $25million into the third stage of a major redevelopment. Visiting Skilled Stadium last week, Premier John Brumby said the redevelopment would see the construction of a new Northern Stand, bringing the ground’s capacity to more than 35,000 and boosting Geelong’s ability to attract major sporting and cultural events for generations to come. “Geelong loves its sport and Skilled Stadium is the heart and soul of this city,� Brumby said. “The new Northern Stand will be a state-ofthe art redevelopment and will ensure a thriving future for the Cats at Skilled Stadium and our government is proud to be supporting it. “Together we’re taking the first step towards further transforming Skilled Stadium into a worldclass facility which will help bolster Geelong as a destination for major events.� Brumby said the government would contribute $25million towards the $75million project, further building on the recent $6million contribution for the Premiership Stand; this brings the government’s total boost for the venue beyond $44million. “This major contribution is about locking-in the future prosperity of Geelong, the Surf Coast and

the Bellarine Peninsula,â€? Brumby said. “It will form a key part of our Blueprint for Regional Victoria to be released later this month that will outline new investment to drive our regions forward.â€? Brumby said Stage Three of the Skilled Stadium redevelopment would include: • New training, playing, spectator and change-room facilities for the Geelong Cricket Club • Improved facilities for the Kardinia Park

Netball Complex • A new 1,000-seat function room suitable for use by both private and business functions • A purpose built Community Wellness and Education Centre • A Geelong Sports Museum to celebrate the region’s sporting successes; and • A new events live site within Kardinia Park to host major events. Sports Minister, James Merlino, said increasing the capacity of Skilled Stadium would also better

position Geelong to hold a World Cup match, should Australia be successful in its bid for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. “Geelong would make a fantastic location for a FIFA World Cup match – it would be simply magnificent for the prosperity of the region,� Merlino said. “Geelong boasts transport, accommodation and links to world-class tourist destinations like the Great Ocean Road, making it an ideal location for a World Cup event.�

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB

WITH MARGOT SMITH

WINTER seems to have settled in early for golfers this year and the rain is showing no sign of holding off. The course is now very heavy under foot and the wet weather gear is out. Only the brave are still in shorts.

Out and about Ladies pennant might be over but the bowl season has started. Monday was the Challenge Cup at Torquay and the team of Judy Talbot, Sue Bowler and Suellen “Paris� Eskrigge bought the silverware back to the club. The ladies scored a combined total of 95 to win, thanks to some pretty play from Paris. Next week the men start their pennant season and we have teams in div 1 and 2. Let’s hope some of the success of the ladies season has rubbed off Midweek results The rain held off for both Wednesday and Thursday – players only had to content with a damper course. The men played Stableford on Wednesday and the best score of the day was from Mario Tutone scoring 41 points to win B grade. Alan Nanscawen won C grade

with 38 points and Geoff Lewtas won A grade with 35 points on a countback from Matt Carboon. NTPs were Frank Fowler, Mario Tutone, Peter Jones and Sandy Talbot. It was a smaller field on Thursday as the ladies also had the first matchplay rounds of the mid week pairs. Nola Fidler had the best round of the day with 39 points winning div 3. Mrs Veronica Shaw won div 2 with 36 points and Suellen Eskrigge won div 1 with 35 points on a countback from Anne Mangan. Glenda Deans nearly wrapped up all the NTPs, Dot Herman got a look in on the 6th, but Glenda took all the others. Weekend competition It was cold and wet for Saturday, but most people that started, finished their rounds – for those that don’t know the new handicap system can be diabolical on an NCR, no longer the point one round. June Washington had the best score for the ladies with 35 points. Matt Avent had the best score for the day with 40 points winning C grade and runner up Jim Simpson had 38 points for the second best score. In A grade, Daniel Schilling won on a countback from Paul Lata with 35 points and in B Grade, Tony Fry did the same to Peter

Richardson with the same scores. NTPs were Lynton Rowe, Neville Henderson, Janice Pekin and Paul Lata. Andrew Simpson had the biggest collect with 13 balls for his eagle. Lucky Andrew cleared out the nest on Saturday, because on Sunday we had two claims. Jacko Smith scored a hole in one on the 13th and James Catchlove scored an eagle on the 8th – I suspect there was only one ball in the eagles nest for them to share! Winners for the day were Judy Talbot with 1 up in the ladies, Mongrel Gowans in A grade with 4 up, Alan Baker in B grade with 7 up and Brent Mathers in C grade with 4 up. NTPs were Alan Baker, Chris John and Felicity Holding. For the diary The CFA Day is this Saturday and while the field is full, there will be plenty of action in the clubhouse afterwards. So come along and bring your wallet for a very good cause. We also have the Presidents and Captains Dinner on Saturday, June 26. Jill Moodie, from Target, will be our guest speaker and we will be acknowledging our members that have clocked up more than 30 years with the club.

FROM THE PRO SHOP

WINTER golf is well and truly upon us, with plenty of rain and icy cold winds. But, that wasn’t enough to deter members and visitors from tackling the course with large fields playing over the long weekend. There’s been plenty of positive feedback with regard to the PGA tournament in January. Members and staff alike, are looking forward to the event and being part of what will be a wonderful week.

Men’s competition The men played off the white tees on Wednesday, with Brian Harley winning with 38 points. John “crack� McKoy continues to be the big improver, his handicap still on the slide. He was runner-up with 37 points. Lindsay Sheppard won NTP on the 7th while Ross James took the honours on the 13th hole. More than 150 players took part in the competition on Saturday, battling freezing conditions. (I know because I was on the bev cart!) Playing towards the end of the field Ron Henderson continued his good

form with 42 points, with Liam Buchanan finishing with 41 points. Still recovering from a bad back, Gavin Sheahan won A grade with 36 points and NTP on the 7th. Allan Foster won NTP on the 5th while Russell Gugger took the honours on the 13th and Brad Liddicoat the 17th. Women’s competition There were some great scores from the women on Thursday despite the long faces at having to play par. Lynne Hyett had a “day out� finishing with 5 up. Lynne is becoming a regular feature in this column, and the Surf Coast Times is now top priority reading matter! Anne Taylor also had an excellent score, finishing with 4 up. Sally Ludlow won NTP on the 7th while Christine Brackin hardly had to use her new putter on the 13th, with a wonderful shot finishing centimetres from the hole. On Saturday Carol McDonald won the women’s

stableford with 34 points and won the money from the men in her group. Pennant The men had their final practice session on Saturday with a number of players vying for the prestigious division 1 team. Ray Hocking has been like Mother Hen, organising the players, practice sessions, and uniforms. The two teams play their first matches on Sunday and we wish them a successful season. On the home front, the boys in the pro shop have let their form slip somewhat with Browny managing just 30 points last week and having to part with plenty of money. Matt is sure a good score is just round the corner, while Tybin is yet to emerge from hibernation. Maybe in the spring! Luckily, the “girls� have found some form, may it last. And finally, welcome back to Deb this week, who has been having a well earned holiday.

Mandy makes it title number 18 BY ELEANOR WOODS WHEN Mandy Buckley’s husband, Michael, encouraged her to take a swing at golf, he never expected her to soon be beating him at the sport. Since Buckley began golfing 22 years ago she has collected close to 20 championship titles. “Golf is a great game. I like the challenge. My competitiveness really comes through,� she said. Buckley began golfing at the Cranbourne Golf Club before she and Michael moved to Jan Juc.

Since 1990, Buckley has won 18 Torquay Golf Club Women’s Championships. “I’m just a big fish in a little pool,� she said humbly. Originally a tennis player for 30 years, the now 52-year-old was quick to take to golf. “Tennis certainly helped. I guess it’s a natural sporting ability,� she said. Buckley’s strength, she said, is in her mind. “I’m very mentally tough. I’m also strategic and have a pretty good short game,� she said.

Buckley now plays on average two times a week and maintains her handicap of 5. During her time she has won five South Western District Championships, has captained the Victorian Women’s Golf team, belonged to the State Golf Committee and has been involved with the South Western District Ladies Golf Association for 14 years. “Golf is such a social sport,� she said. “You make great friends. But you can also play on your own.�

Warm up to stay on the road AS EACH winter wraps its cold arms around us, a little more thought has to go into our warm up and injury prevention planning to keep us on track right throughout this cooler period. With our body’s exposure to the cold for prolonged periods at this time of the year, it is little wonder that many riders suffer winter back pain and various muscle soreness issues. With the combinations of some hard training and winter, you will definitely suffer from muscle tightness and inflexibility unless you incorporate regular stretching into your routine. Muscle contraction can cause a reduction of muscle elasticity and flexibility of joints over time and as a result, your body’s range of motion is hampered which will often contribute to a reduction in performance. Stretching Studies have shown stretching may increase the flexibility of the joint by up to 10-20%. So in a nutshell, flexible muscle groups have increased strength, therefore increasing cycling

performance. Poor flexibility also makes you more prone to the aforementioned strains and pulls. Incorporating a regular stretching programme will help you become more adaptable to any change and should help prevent injuries. The best way to stretch is to warm up first, then stretch, as warming up alone will not really increase our range of motion substantially. Stretching slowly and gently – holding each stretch for 20-30 seconds – is the best method to follow, with some people only requiring one stretch of each muscle and others requiring a few more repetitions. Avoid bouncing or jerking when stretching, as this may cause micro tears in the muscle and actually reduce your overall flexibility. Stretch while you feel a slight resistance in the muscle, but no pain, then as the muscle relaxes further increase the stretch very slightly until you feel the resistance again for the duration of the stretch. The important thing to remember with any stretching is that the stretching of

tight muscles should also parallel with the strengthening of any specific muscle weakness. The following are a few cyclingspecific stretches that will increase your overall flexibility and should assist your overall riding.

Calf muscles Standing with your feet pointed straight ahead, step forward with your right leg and bend your knee, keeping your left foot firmly planted on the ground behind you. Keep your upper body erect and drop your hips forward until you feel the stretch in your calf muscle (don’t bend over at the waist, use your hips to move). Hold for 15-30 seconds, then rotate. Quadriceps Standing, reach back with your right hand and grab your right foot at the top of the ankle, and pull up towards your butt. The quads are the biggest cycling muscle, and deserve a very slow stretch, careful not to pull too hard too fast. Hold for 15-30 seconds, then rotate legs. Quick tip: Heighten the stretch by tightening your butt muscles.

WITH STEVE DRAPER OF HENDRY CYCLES

Ilio-tibial (IT) band The IT band runs down the side of your leg and helps in balance and control; the section of this band that affects cyclists is between the hip and knee. A tight or inflamed IT band can cause tendinitis or knee alignment issues. Stretch from a sitting position: Cross the left leg across the right knee and gently push down on the left knee. You should feel the stretch on the outside of your leg. Hold for 15-30 seconds, then rotate.

Hamstrings The pedalling motion develops short and powerful hamstrings. Unlike running, which lengthens hamstrings, cyclists are prone to tightness in these muscles. This is why your ‘hams’ might ache if you’re a cyclist who runs on occasions. This makes it very important to stretch hamstrings slowly and carefully. Standing, bend over at the waist and let your arms dangle toward the ground, letting the knees bend slightly outward. This stretch benefits greatly from deep, steady breathing – you’ll find that you can touch the ground after several slow, deep breaths.

OUR NEXT GAME: FFV PROVISIONAL 2 MENS

Glutes The butt muscles are perhaps the most oft-overlooked muscles in cycling stretching. From a cross-legged sitting position on the floor, angle your left leg over the right and plant left foot next to right knee, so your left leg forms a triangle. Grasp the front of your left knee and lean forward, careful to keep your back straight. Feel the stretch along your left hamstring. This releases the piraformis, a connecting muscle that often tightens after sitting on a saddle. Perform this stretch with both legs. Neck and shoulders Checking for traffic and other riders behind you is where the neck muscles come into play. Standing, gently roll your head in a circle several times, then rotate directions. Shrug your shoulders upwards and hold for five seconds. Repeat several times. Most importantly, stretching makes us feel good, which is reason enough to have it as part of our daily ritual.

New report gives thumbs up for Port Philip Bay Minister Responsible for Fisheries, Joe Helper, said the report Port Phillip Bay: fish in our waters, (including the report on the dredging outcome in Port Phillip Bay) provided useful, up-to-date information on the state of the fisheries in the bay and the results were good news for both recreational and commercial fishers. “Port Phillip Bay is the largest recreational fishery in Australia and supports a commercial fishing industry worth $3.6million per year, making it Victoria’s most important bay,” he said. “And the outlook is good, with stable catches predicted for the future. For more than 30 years Fisheries Victoria has regularly collected and analysed information on the bay’s environment, fish habitats and populations. “This publication is the first time all our knowledge has been turned into a reader-friendly report.” The report highlights that Port Phillip Bay: • Provides 48 per cent of Victoria’s total commercial bay and inlet fisheries catch • Sustains up to 25 per cent of all recreational fishing effort in Victorian waters • Provides habitat to over 1,000 species of marine

plants and animals, including 300 species of fish • Is home to all of the most targeted recreational species – snapper, King George whiting and flathead; and • Has 3.2million people living around its perimeter, making it one of Australia’s most densely populated catchments, yet the bay is healthier and cleaner compared to other bays near large cities. “The bay’s fisheries resources were well managed by both national and international standards,” said Fisheries Victoria executive director, Anthony Hurst. “The report produced by the Department of Primary Industries’ Fisheries Victoria division is a valuable resource for a wide range of people including those who love fishing, bay users and students, “Underpinned by science, this is a great snapshot of our current understanding of the key features and mechanisms that influence the bay’s natural productivity and health. “It also highlights how environmental factors shape the productivity of the King George whiting and snapper fisheries and describes the research activities currently underway around the bay. “Scientific monitoring of the bay’s fish stocks underpins our fisheries policy and management decisions to ensure fish now and for the future. We have a very strong fishery that supplies Victorians with the finest seafood.”

Schools World Cup is on

THE TORQUAY Stockfeeds Surf Coast Schools World Cup gets under way this week in an event which will be the largest junior sports competition ever held in the Surf Coast Shire. More than 700 school children are competing in the four-day event that has competition streams for both big and small schools and for grades 3/4 boys, 3/4 girls, 5/6 boys and 5/6 girls. Every child gets four games of nine-aside soccer, with a grand final to decide the World Cup champion. Schools have entered multiple teams, each taking on the name of a World Cup nation. Teams entered vary from Bellbrae (Serbia) to Torquay (Australia) and Bellbrae (Germany). The competition is sure to further increase the rapidly growing interest in soccer and the size of the region’s fastest growing sports club, Surf Coast Football Club. Surf Coast FC president, Joe Taylor, said the World Cup is about competition, giving kids a chance to play, and promoting fair play. “I’m sure it will be pretty competitive but we have an absolute focus in this event of fair play and kids having a whole lot of fun,� he said.

“We have streams for girls and boys to make sure everyone gets a fair go. “It’s about keeping kids fit and healthy, getting both girls and boys involved in the game so we have a strong representation of both genders at the club, which is what our club culture is all about.� In past Schools World Cups there has been some spectacular finals, with the winner being decided by dramatic penalty shootouts with school kids, parents, teachers and club volunteers holding their breath until the final match-winning shot was taken. The Torquay Stockfeeds Surf Coast Schools World Cup this year is also coinciding with the big boys at play in South Africa, so there is sure to be lots of inspiration. The small schools Schools World Cup (Anglesea PS, Bellbrae, Mount Dunned PS, Moriac PS, Airey Inlet PS and Winchelsea PS) is being held will be at The Quay on Horshoebend Road, Torquay, today and tomorrow, with games beginning from 10am. The bigger schools will compete at Torquay College on Thursday, June 17 and Wednesday, June 23, also with a 10am start. Parents and family supporters are welcome to attend.

The children at Portarlington Oval were raring to go at Sunday’s Auskick day.

TELSTRA IN THE COMMUNITY The growth of our community support over the past 10 years is testament to the commitment we have to the communities that our people live and work in. Whether it be financial assistance to purchase much needed equipment and maintain facilities, or people, being there to deliver services and rebuild in times of adversity, in essence it’s about bringing local communities together. “Winning the Telstra Master Athlete of the Year award at the Mallee Sports Assembly was a fantastic honour, and thanks to Telstra this award encourages people of all ages to strive to be active and healthy. Thanks Telstra for sponsoring the award and local sports!” Rob Latta, Telstra Master Athlete of the Year, Mallee Sports Assembly.

But it’s just the start; we look forward to continuing our commitment, now and into the future. To find out more about Telstra’s community programs and how you can get involved visit ideasforgood.com.au

2010

Telstra Country Wide established on June 4 2000 becoming the local face of Telstra with 30 offices across regional & rural areas

We have strengthened our local commitment with 50 TCW offices, supported by a network of 145 Telstra Stores in regional Australia

28,000 customers living in the most remote parts of Australia could not access untimed local calls

All Australians have access to untimed local calls (since 2004) and HomeLine plans that provide greater cost surety

An analogue network covering 500,000 square kilometres and 91% of the population progressively being replaced by the CDMA network

The Next G™ 3G network now covers 99% of Australia’s population at over 2 million square kilometres, allowing more people to connect in more places

Access to narrowband internet services with dial-up speeds of 20 - 56kps and some customers paying timed call access

Broadband available to 92% of Australians with internet speeds ranging from 8Mbps for ADSL up to 20Mbps for ADSL2+*. These superfast internet speeds are 10 - 1000 times faster than in the year 2000

CDMA Wireless providing modest speeds of 14.4 kbps

Our Next G™ 3G network now provides typical downlink speeds of 550kbps to 8Mbps in all CBDs and many regional areas when using our latest Telstra Elite modem* allowing customers to do more online in more places

TC W ’S PLAN FOR THE FUTURE

We believe that a smart kid living in rural Australia should be able attend any university in the world online. A fruit grower should be able to video call their customer in Japan to show the quality of their fruit on the tree. An elderly sheep grazier should be able to video conference their city-based medical specialist from their local regional health centre. Working hand in hand with our communities, we will make this happen. Brett Riley, Group Managing Director, Telstra Country Wide

*Max speeds of 20Mbps speeds are based on Telstra tests and average speeds will be lower. ADSL2+ and Next G™ network speeds vary due to network configuration, interference/local conditions, traffic, distance from the cell/exchange, user numbers, hardware, software, download source and other factors. ™ and ® trade mark and registered trade mark of Telstra Corporation Limited, ABN 33 051 775 556.
