The value of art to the development of young children and teenagers will be central to the public programs of artsCape Biennial 2010, the major outdoor sculpture exhibition to be held in Byron Bay from June 26 to July 11. The extensive education program will include hands-on sculpture activities for young people working with professional artists, imaginative education kits that are free for teachers and parents to access and an invitation to all schools in the region to organize an excursion to see the exhibition in the last week of Term 2. ArtsCape has commissioned visual

arts teaching professionals to prepare a series of inspired education kits for Primary (K-6) and Secondary students (7-12). The education kits, downloadable free from the artsCape website, include interesting and fun information about environmental sculpture. A draft risk assessment has also been provided to make organising excursions to artsCape easy for teachers. All of these documents are now available from www.artscapebiennial.org. As part of its program to directly engage local youth, artsCape, with the support of Byron Youth Service and the Uncle Project, has commissioned

Lennox Head artist James Brown to hold a series of sculpture workshops, specifically designed for teenage boys. The sculpture they will create together will be exhibited at artsCape and then donated to the Youth Activities Centre for permanent installation. A local independent school, Byron Community Primary School, is participating in a series of sculpture workshops with Main Arm artist Lynne Adams. Students will work with recycled and painted plastic bottles to create a suspended artwork entitled ‘An Octopus’s Garden’. This artwork will also be exhibited as part of artsCape and

be lit in the evening by low voltage solar powered lighting. UK artist Lorna Green will work with Byron Bay High School students to create an artwork from empty glass bottles collected by students in the week leading up to artsCape. The artsCape education program is supported by The Caledonia Foundation, a private philanthropic foundation. For further information regarding artsCape’s 2010 Education Program or to book a school tour or excursion, please contact Laurel Judell on 0410 450 661 or email Laurel@ artsCape.net.au.

Paddles ready to hit the water The first ever Mullum to Bruns Paddle event gets ready at Heritage Park this coming Sunday from 8am. ‘There are no pre-event registrations, but we have heard along the grapevine that many recreational paddlers are coming along,’ said Craig Reid, Brunswick Surf Club president. Craig will have his Surf Club team ready to sign up the unknown number of entrants from 8am on the day and provide exit and certificate collection instructions at the finish in Brunswick Heads. The Stand Up Paddlers will head off first at 9am on the 10km trip, followed immediately by all the competitive paddlers on a variety of other craft in the TURSA Open Paddle Challenge. Surfboards however are not permitted. Go Sea Kayak has just thrown in a $200 cash prize for the first paddler over the line. The Echo Fun Paddle starts at 9.30am and everyone who completes the journey will receive a certificate as proof. ‘We’re hoping that people will have a bit of fun dressing up and decorating their craft for the journey,’ said Penny Fuller, one of the organisers from the Volunteer Marine Rescue. ‘The best effort will win a weekend holiday at one of the Brunswick Holiday Park’s waterfront

cabins and a dinner at Rice. All participants are asked to wear appropriate clothing (no hooded tops) and lifejackets are recommended. A full list of what to bring can be found on the website www.brunswickheads.org.au. Brunswick Volunteer Marine Rescue and Surf Club have got the river well covered for safety, with five boats spread out along the river in case of any difficulties on the way. Those who need to leave their cars at Heritage Park will be able to catch a shuttle bus back after they arrive in Brunswick. The local Scouts

will mind kayaks at the Scout Hall for a gold coin. An opening ceremony, at which Crs Diane Woods and Cr Simon Richardson will officiate, will be held at the Sound-

shell at noon, followed by the presentation of awards. This is a fundraising event for Brunswick’s Marine Rescue, Surf Club and Visitor Centre. Q Feature, page 22

Hot on the heels of Spaghetti What happens when 14 Spaghetti Circus teenagers juggle their way through their first European tour? Local filmmaker Sahaj Dumpleton is travelling with them next month for six weeks to find out. ‘I’ve embraced this project at short notice to ensure their journey is documented,’ Sahaj told The Echo. ‘It’s an extraordinary “coming of age” story for our local Spaghetti Circus – 18 years old, their first overseas tour and the first Australian youth circus to be invited to attend the International Youth Circus Festival in London. ‘It seems to me a tragedy if these young people travel to Europe on this courageous adventure and there is no video record of their performances and their personal journeys. Sahaj is urgently seeking local production partners or sponsors to help fund a documentary Blood, Sweat and Cheers and online Spaghetti Diaries during the trip. Spaghetti Circus is a not-for-profit organisation, financial support is tax deductible and business sponsors can be represented in the online Spaghetti Diaries. ‘We leave in four weeks,’ says Sahaj. ‘It’s a low budget project but we need a few thousand dollars more to get us over the line, or on the plane. ‘It’s an incredibly positive story of youth, for youth, which deserves to be shared as

Fatal crash at St Helena A Queensland woman died in a 3-car accident last Saturday morning on the northbound section of the Pacific Highway on the St Helena Hill. According to a police report, ‘It is believed a Toyota Camry station wagon was travelling south on the highway when it crossed onto the opposite side of the road and collided with a car towing a caravan and a Kia Carnival van.’ Paramedics found the 54-year-old driver of the Camry dead at the scene.

broadly as possible.’ Spaghetti Circus will perform in Surrey, on the German resort island of Sylt and at the International Youth Circus Festival. In addition, they’ll spend two weeks in the working class north of England presenting their new show ‘Teenager’,

about teenage issues, to high schools. To help document Spaghetti Circus’s journey contact Sahaj on 6685 3554 or email sahaj@ freerangemedia.com or Spaghetti general manager Tanya Burkhardt spaghettigm@ gmail.com.

There were six other patients with a range of injuries. Paramedics treated patients on scene for spinal, abdominal and chest injuries along with abrasions cuts and bruising. Out of these six patients, two of them were children who were taken to Tweed Heads Hospital. One child patient sustained facial abrasions and hip pain. The two female children are in a stable condition. One female patient trapped in the accident suffered abdominal trauma and was transported to Lismore Base Hospital by Life Saver Rescue Helicopter. A 72 year old male was treated for a chest injury and taken by road ambulance to Tweed Heads hospital in a serious condition. Two other patients were taken to Byron Bay District hospital with minor injuries.

MP lodges petition on Bangalow interchange plans Member for Ballina Don Page has delivered a petition containing 1,015 signatures to the NSW Parliament regarding the proposed new half-interchange at Bangalow. The petition is calling on the Minister for Roads to reconsider the Bangalow interchange that is planned as part of the Tin-

tenbar to Ewingsdale Pacific Highway upgrade. Mr Page said the petitioners have raised several issues for the Minister to consider. These include that the proposal would contravene the RTA’s highway design guidelines since the proposed interchange is some 5kms from the Ewingsdale In-

terchange, whereas RTA guidelines require 10kms separation; require a floodlit roundabout at the same level as the existing highway, visible to most of Bangalow’s residents night and day; increase air and noise pollution across Bangalow due to the increased traffic movements caused by traffic enter-

ing and exiting the upgraded highway; and encourage heavy vehicles from Lismore to travel through Bangalow to access the upgraded highway travelling south, thereby reducing road safety. ‘I generally agree with the petitioners’ concerns,’ Mr Page said.

A new exhibition opening this week at Retrospect Galleries takes the viewer on a trip back in time to the best of the 20th Century. ‘Retroism’ features works by 12 internationally accomplished artists including renowned US artist Robert Mars, whose multi media works reflect a longing for a different America – before ‘the independent aesthetic of the not-so-distant past was replaced by homogenised corporate culture and standardised cityscapes’. The artists include Germany’s Mario Wagner, Dutch artist Hanneke Treffers and Australian Nick Morris, alongside representatives from France, Belgium, America and the UK. Co-curated by the director of Retrospect Galleries, Bree Delian, and Melbourne artist Kareem Rizk, Retroism explores the explosion of interest in popular and nostalgic imagery over the past decade, as evident across contemporary art, advertising, fashion and design. The show has come about through Retrospect’s involve-

ment with Rizk since 2008, during which time Delian says she has been impressed by the public response to the young 28 year-old’s retro inspired collage and multi-media works, in addition to his accomplishments

at a national and international level, including exhibitions in Australia, the USA, UK and Europe, and publication of his work in numerous high profile art and design books and magazines. Late last year she spoke to him

about developing an exhibition together and from there it has just grown. For a full list of artists and/or more information, phone 6680 8825, or go to www.retrospectgalleries.com.

New local film screens in Byron Bay Screenworks and Dendy Byron Bay Cinemas are presenting the Northern Rivers premiere of Lou, developed and produced in this region. The film’s young star Lily Bell-Tindley and writer/director Belinda Chayko will be talking about the film and answering questions from the audience at this Screenworks fundraising screening on June 7 at Dendy Byron Bay Cinemas. Lou, which was filmed in the canefields of Northern NSW, is a tender story about the relationship between 11-year-old Lou and her grandfather. Not long after Lou’s father walks out of her life, her irascible and befuddled grandfather crashes in. But when Doyle comes to stay, Lou discovers, against all her expectations, the healing power of love. The film introduces Northern Rivers local, 11 year old Lily Bell-Tindley, in the role of Lou alongside famous British actor

Lily Bell-Tindley stars as Lou in the film of the same name.

John Hurt as her grandfather. Director Belinda Chayko set the film in her hometown, Murwillumbah. Scenes were filmed in the canefields that surround the town with Mt Warning as a backdrop, as well as at Cabarita Beach. ‘We have ended up with some truly beautiful images which suit what I believe is a

very romantic story,’ says Belinda. ‘I wanted to create an idealised world in which these characters could exist – could dream their dream – and the landscape helps do that.’ The film screens at 6.30pm on June 7, ten days after it is the opening film at the prestigious Dungog Film Festival and prior to its national release on June

Bruns kids produce and star in TV ad Brunswick Heads Public School students from levels five and six are writing, producing, directing, performing in and assisting with the editing of their own 30 second commercial, set to air on Prime TV later this year. The project came about because Brunswick Heads Chamber of Commerce won $5,000 worth of Prime TV advertising time last year when they received a Regional Achievement Award acknowledging them as the best chamber of commerce in NSW. ‘We wanted to use the prize to do something positive for the community, so we approached the primary school with this exciting project for our local kids to work on that would highlight all the really great things there are to do here in Brunswick Heads,’ said Simple Pleasures 2010 project coordinator Kim Rosen. The students were given a brief to produce their ad around the Simple Pleasures brand. Lanie Loughlin, who is coordinating ‘The Young Bruns’ project with Kim Rosen, said that one of the most exciting

aspects of the project was the students’ exposure to a pool of highly skilled and experienced TV industry professionals. So far, the list of local industry professionals volunteering their expertise includes artistic director Alan Morden, TV executive producer Valerie Hardy, international documentary

distributor Jenny Cornish, video camera tutor Jenny Garrett, Prime TV stringer Bob Easterbrook, owner of Elite Edge Media Grant Fowler, and local musician Ilona Harker. ‘Not many kids get the opportunity to work with industry professionals like this, supported by their school, and

showcase their talents,’ said Lanie. ‘They are being inspired by this program and in turn are coming up with some really inspiring ideas – we can’t wait to see the final cut.’ A launch/public screening of the students’ work will be held before the commercial airs later in the year.

Story & photo Eve Jeffery

A gift from a Vietnam veteran set Martin Johnston on a photographic path many years ago when he was only 14. Martin was living with his family in Ocean Shores and spent a lot of time with his next door neighbour Roger Shaeffer. ‘Roger was an artist and a photographer and he showed me a lot of his work. He bought a Canon TF when he was a solider in Vietnam.’ Martin says that when Roger died about nine years ago from cancer he got from exposure to Agent Orange, his wife Kate gave the camera to Martin to start his own adventure, and adventure he did. Moving into the digital world

two years ago, Martin travelled the world for 11 months with his digital companion, a Nikon D80. He had planned to visit San Francisco, New York City, London and New Delhi. His trip covered a lot more ground as he met people along the way

who he would join for jaunts to other places like Spain and Morocco. Martin says he also got sidetracked in Croatia. ‘I fell in love with the islands there. It is a war-torn country that in the last ten years has completely

turned itself around and created such a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere.’ On his return to Australia, Martin self-published a book, Around the World, with a selection of his images. ‘The idea came to me when I was staying with Leah Henry, a local girl who now dances in the Moulin Rouge. I had no idea what I was doing at first, but after a little advice from Print Rescue in Brunswick Heads, I was on my way.’ Martin says the response has been overwhelmingly positive from cafe owners, galleries, gift shops and also online. Around The World is on sale at Art Piece Gallery in Mullumbimby for $25, and on www.saycheesefotos.blogspot.com.

Students from Mullumbimby High have been participating in weekly Young Women’s groups for their second year through the Mullumbimby based Byron Youth Service (BYS) program. During that time they have built trust, supported each other through numerous crises, participated in a variety of skills-based activities and in life skills groups. However it has become evident that they miss the rituals and ceremonies which mark their life transitions and the

symbols which mark important events and/or changes that denote their progress as young women. This group of young women have discussed, planned and negotiated a ceremony in which they can symbolically let go of some of their past hurts, resentments and accumulated pain. On Wednesday May 19 the girls group, with coordinator

Deborah Pearse and celebrant Teeya Blatt, circled in a LettingGo Ceremony. ‘This ceremony recognised that each of us has psychic and spiritual stuff we need to let go of, as does everyone all over the planet, and by participating personally in a Letting-Go Ceremony we contribute our support to the collective process,’ say the cordinators.

BYS Youth Connections is funded by DEWRR and DoCS but is always grateful for any additional funding or assistance. Around sixty young people a week access the Cottage in Mullumbimby. Anyone who can help in any way with funding, resources and/or specific skills they would like to share with young people please contact Deb on 0403 613 229.

BayFM applications have been and gone and somewhere along the way have given two local youth a big surprise. Damon Meredith and Sam Cook, both 18 and recent Mullumbimby High School students, submitted their proposal for their youth radio show entitled Youthamism in a spur-of-themoment decision and haven’t looked back since. Damon and Sam worked in secret to bring their ideas to life. Enlisting the help of former radio presenter Charlie Starret, the pair recorded an hour-long demo CD for the station, setting down the basic format of the show. Once they were accepted, it was a frantic rush to learn how to control the radio desk, which was helped immensely by both Karen Kolby and Anthony Moulay who showed them the ropes.

Youthamism presenters Sam and Damon.

Youthamism is currently airing on BayFM 99.9 from 5pm to 6pm on Saturdays. It focuses primarily on youth issues

and themes, including regular segments such as Surf Source, Tech Talk, the Uni Cycle and Travel Trip Tips.

Parvovirus outbreak puts local dogs in danger Eve Jeffery

Byron Shire Council has issued a warning to pet owners to beware of an outbreak of Parvovirus, a condition that in many cases kills dogs, mainly puppies and older dogs, but can affect any dog. ‘Scattered all around the environment, like deadly confetti, Parvovirus is a hardy, virulent and highly contagious virus that strikes down hundreds of dogs each year.’ – from the website of local veterinarian Dr Matt Allworth, who says there was a

recent outbreak of Parvovirus in Casino. ‘A month after the Casino outbreak a ten week old puppy, recently re-homed to Ocean Shores from The Channon, came down with gastro symptoms. Within five days he was dead, despite veterinary support. The other infected puppy, euthanased immediately on presentation, came from a litter in the Tweed area and may be the originator.’ The Billinudgel Veterinary Hospital has had four cases since the initial dog, including another fatality.

Parvo is a highly contagious virus and resistant to the effect of heat, detergent and alcohol and therefore can remain in the environment for up to a year after an infected dog has been in the area. The virus can be easily passed on via the hair or feet of infected dogs, contaminated shoes, clothes and other objects. There is no cure for Parvo, the symptoms of which include vomiting, lethargy and foul-smelling diarrhoea. The three surviving dogs at the Billinudgel surgery have now

gone home after a week of isolation and veterinary support. Dr Matt says that it is important that dogs get the full course of immunisation. ‘Ensure your puppy gets their complete puppy series, on time, and at least one annual vaccination before you start to think about relaxing,’ he said. ‘During outbreaks, ensure vaccinations are up to date – boosters aren’t protective for about two weeks.’ For more information visit Dr Matt Allworth’s website www.communityvet.net and follow the links.

Comment

Tony digs a deep hole with words Volume 24 #50

May 25, 2010

Check your gender ID The International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO www. homophobiaday.org) went by quietly on Monday last week with barely a ripple in the Byron bubble. (Is it time the world reconsidered the notion of International Days? There seems to be one happening every ten minutes; surely the caring public is suffering Day Fatigue.) Despite the insouciance, homophobia remains a real problem for the Northern Rivers. Among teens, the word ‘gay’ is often used as a pejorative term for something lame or stupid. (If you think about it, ‘lame’ probably reflects an earlier prejudice against polio sufferers. One of my friends at primary school in the 1950s, for instance, was often shunned because he got about with the aid of caliper splints.) The abuse of language is the least of the problem, however. Individuals attracted to people of the same sex suffer both psychological and physical abuse at the hands of others conditioned by antiquated social mores or religious attitudes. The national youth mental health foundation headspace (www.headspace.org.au) poses some pointed questions to the community concerning homophobia: ‘Is it acceptable that same sex attracted young people are up to three times more likely than their heterosexual friends to attempt suicide? Is it acceptable that in rural and regional areas the attempted suicide rate for same sex attracted young people is six times the population average? Is it acceptable that 60 per cent of same sex attracted young people experience violence or abuse, and 78 per cent happens at secondary school and 47 per cent when they are simply walking down the street?’ Surely any reasonably caring person would say ‘no’, whether or not homosexuality is on their list of dislikes. Yet according to headspace ‘same sex attracted’ youth in particular face depression, homelessness and drug use in response to lack of acceptance and bullying. (Polite bureaucratic language can be a pain, can’t it? ‘Homosexual’ works much better than ‘same sex attracted’.) ‘Regardless of your personal values, the safety and wellbeing of our young people is the most important thing,’ says headspace CEO Chris Tanti. ‘Non-judgemental respect and acknowledgment of sexual orientation and gender identity is an important step towards understanding a young person’s experience and needs.’ Exploring gender identity is probably not high among most people’s needs, seemingly satisfied as we are with stereotypical two-sex role modelling, but what it means to be ‘differently human’ has relevance to many individuals and to the way we treat our planet – does the ‘macho man’, for instance, have any role in regenerating degraded habitat? For young people experiencing abuse because of their attraction to the same sex, or confusion about what gender identity means to them, there is advice and help available through ACON Northern Rivers. Visit www.acon.org.au/communities/regionalnsw/Northern-Rivers or free call 1800 633 637. Perhaps the ‘battle of the sexes’, and the battle against the same-sexed, would lose a little heat if we all found beauty in gender ambiguity, instead of demanding certainty; certainly more appreciation of androgyny would offset the ‘populate or perish’ meme. – Michael McDonald, editor

ichard Nixon declared certain of his statements inoperative. George Bush sometimes misspoke. John Howard had his core and noncore promises. And Winston Churchill admitted occasionally being guilty of a terminological inexactitude. Now Tony Abbott has taken his rightful place in this pantheon of weasel-worded mendacity by confessing that some of his policy pronouncements are not entirely consistent. What he says in the heat of the moment should not always be taken with the same degree of assurance as what he reads from carefully scripted documents. Or something like that. As his attempts to explain his position to an incredulous Kerry O’Brien continued, he became Jesuitical to the point of incomprehensibility. It was not, as he agreed later in a moment of indisputable candour, his finest interview. And the real stupidity of it was that all he really had to do was to say that he had changed his mind; that the weight of evidence had persuaded him that the need for a comprehensive, firmly funded system of parental care was sufficiently urgent for him to abandon his earlier ritual pledge of no new taxes. Red Kezza would still have given him a working over, but at least he would not have been lumbered with Phoney Tony for the rest of his career, and he would not have been subject to the harassing he is going to get from government and media alike every time he says anything purportedly serious from now on. And of course, he would not have had the embarrassment of Barnaby Joyce trying to help him out: ‘What someone might say to their lover in the heat of passion should be entirely different to what you

R

would say to the lady checking out your groceries at the supermarket.’ Oh, I don’t know: ‘Do you take American Express?’ would seem to cover both situations. But moving on, it became instantly obvious that assessing Abbott’s credibility on any given occasion was going to be even more difficult than he had suggested. Reading from his carefully scripted budget reply speech the previous week, he had stated – even promised –

The real stupidity of it was that all Tony Abbott really had to do was to say that he had changed his mind. by Mungo MacCallum that the opposition’s proposed spending cuts would be fully detailed by Joe Hockey at the Press Club. Nothing heat-of-the-moment about it: this was a serious and considered commitment. Or so the prima donnas of the press gallery believed when they fronted on Wednesday, only to find that Hockey had flick-passed the commitment to Andrew Robb. He blandly announced a grand total of $46.7 billion and went on to give a talk on what he somewhat grandiosely described as his economic philosophy. The hacks took this as a serious affront, and unanimously decided that Hockey’s failure to deliver was the real story; what he actually had to say was no longer relevant. Robb did belatedly appear to hand out a list of proposed savings, and to answer a few questions, but the news coverage centred around Abbott and Hockey’s unforgivable snubbing of the people who really run things in Canberra.

others in the same field which could, as Robb proudly admitted, be even more expensive. Independent economists estimated the total real savings as somewhere between $5 billion and $8 billion, which did not even cover the cost of new coalition promises already announced; even if Lindsay Tanner’s estimate of $15.7 billion is an exaggeration, items like Abbott’s direct action on climate change won’t come cheap. The Australian, as always, tried to do its bit: under Hockey’s headline figure of $46.7 billion it published a list of everything that could conceivably be regarded as a saving and quite a few things that couldn’t. Even so, the total only came to $42.6 billion – but hey, what’s a few billion between close friends? Perhaps there are a few more candidates for Julia Gillard’s NAPLAN numeracy tests. Or perhaps the list just wasn’t very well scripted. It seems likely that Merry Andrew will join Phoney Tony and Sloppy Joe in

the Labor lexicon of economic shadow ministers who cannot be taken seriously. It might be time to bring Malcolm Turnbull back into the fold; at least he knows something about money. This is obviously one area of vulnerability for the coalition, but another is that they are rapidly painting themselves into a corner over what Abbott continues, gratingly, to call Rudd’s great big new tax. The miners’ public opposition is vigorous and unremitting, but behind the scenes a lot of negotiating is going on and the government is getting some high powered support from Ken Henry in Treasury, whose defence of the tax was comprehensive and passionate, and from Ross Garnaut, arguably the country’s most respected economic planner, who described it as elegant, if badly sold and in need of the odd tweak. GetUp’s supportive advertising campaign isn’t hurting either. Most of the hard heads accept that some sort of Resources Rent Tax is inevitable; the only question is how much ground is the government prepared to give. Almost certainly the answer is, not much; the political imperative is not to be seen to be backing down in the face of threats and bluster based on pure self interest. It is more likely than not that an agreement will emerge before the election, and that it will be one that can and will be portrayed as a win for the government; which will leave Abbott, yet again, without a central issue. To be consistent, he should continue to oppose what will still be a great big new tax on mining industry, even if it ends up being in a form that the industry accepts. But as last week demonstrated conclusively, Abbott has never been obsessively concerned with consistency.

Letters

Differing views of a festival site Good people, please don’t turn off just yet! Latest word from North Byron Shire Parklands – the cosy feelgood name given to the proposed privately run mega festival city for the north of our Shire. This week one of our local associations was sent a letter from NBSP. It outlines in black and white the intended uses for their unwanted and completely inappropriate (over) development proposal currently before the NSW state government. If we as a community allow this to proceed, then the residents of the north, plus the plants and animals of the Billinudgel Nature Reserve and surrounding areas, will be subjected to, as plainly stated in the letter, an unlimited number of festival days per year. Comprising four massive Splendour type 3-day events, with more than 10,000 people and no upper limit on numbers; four ‘moderate’ single day events with up to 10,000 people; and no limit of ‘small’, less than 300 people events per year. I cannot (politely) express how fed up I am of fighting this monstrous proposal. Here are the issues yet again that just won’t go away, no matter how many time NBSP use ‘sustain-

able’ and ‘best practice’ in a sentence. Doof doof doof – noise, noise and more noise till 3am. Great, just what you want at home in your own living room and later in the ‘boudoir’ after a hard day in paradise. Traffic – cars, buses, trucks in their thousands. Turning Tweed Valley Way into Parramatta road. Ecology – the plants and animals of the Nature Reserve and the local area. Our wildlife is far too threatened and fragile to risk the negative effects of this outrageous proposed development. Holiday letting – turning more of our largest residential and the most affordable areas in our shire into short term party accommodation. It only takes one house like this to ruin a whole street. Be prepared, people! This letter from them is just the start of the process. Be alert and alarmed! Soon will be our chance to write submissions to defend our lifestyle, our neighbourhoods and our planet, yet again.

Transition night

Q

If you were interested in the Transition Town film nights that were recently held around Byron Shire, or are just intrigued by the Transition Town concept of building strong, resilient, local communities, come and join us on Saturday May 29 at 4 pm at Ewingsdale Hall. Transition Byron Shire is hosting a ‘Potluck with Pur-

Broken Head Quarry Earthworks

We are committed to maximising ecological values and functions of our land and we will do this by increasing habitat connectivity, removing weeds and limiting event uses to a very small percentage of each year. Given the amount of down time (the length of non-event periods) and the increase in native vegetation and tree cover, any adverse influences on flora and fauna caused by limited event use will be offset by the dimension of enhanced habitat values and ongoing environmental repair. We are pleased that you have sought to undertake a 50 page study. If this report contains material to assist in maintenance of biodiversity values, we would be grateful to receive a copy to add to the hundreds of days of onground environmental assessment, audits and fauna and flora sampling that we have undertaken to date. We encourage the community to visit our website to understand what we are proposing for our land and to contact us to arrange a site tour – www. northbyronshireparklands. com.au

Thanks Bob Oehlman, (Letters May 18) for your take on wildlife at Yelgun. We agree

unreservedly with your statement, ‘With increasing pressure of development and diminishing habitat, nature reserves and wildlife corridors are absolutely vital for the ongoing survival of our unique Australian fauna.’ Biodiversity cannot be sustained in Nature Reserves alone and the contribution of well managed habitats on private lands is widely recognised to be vital to conserve native ecosystem functions, especially connectivity. Maintaining the status quo on the two farms we purchased and amalgamated was not going to achieve this. Under the stewardship of North Byron Parklands we consider that the flora and fauna of our land will be significantly better off than under any other realistic proposition for the land. To develop our aim of ‘establishing a world class cultural event site within an enhanced ecological setting’ we have already planted over 7,000 trees, installed nesting boxes and are dedicating land to the Nature Reserve to permanently establish the wildlife corridor. Current plans are to increase the area of native vegetation on Parklands by 11 per cent, and to establish additional plantings over another 25 per cent of the property.

pose’ so we can learn more about one another, what we’re up to and our visions for the future as well as the important activity of sharing food. Come meet and eat with others who are interested in creating an abundant, healthy and happy future in the Shire and beyond. I will give a presentation of photos and impressions gath-

ered on my visit to Japan where I met the initiator of Transition Towns in Japan, Hide Enomoto, and visited an intentional Yamagishi community that’s 40 years old and functions non-hierarchically and with no money used internally. We’ll then have time for questions, discussions and networking before dinner. For those who wish to stay on we will

be showing the film Australia Pumping Empty after dinner.

h a b m u l l i w r u M & d e Twe We’re the REAL Subaru & Mitsubishi Service Experts CRICKS

MENT UPDATE T R A P E D E IC V R SE

By Scott Leishman, General Manager It is my pleasure to announce that Craig Bilbrough has recently been appointed Service Manager at our Crick’s Murwillumbah workshop. Craig has 30 years of technical experience. Twenty of those, as Workshop Manager for K-Mart Service Stores in Victoria and Queensland so you can be rest assured that Craig is very used to ensuring high levels of customer satisfaction. Over the coming weeks Craig intends to roll out new customer service programs designed to make servicing your vehicle even easier and more convenient. His team includes Kurt Buchanan – Workshop Foreman, Lindsay Evans – Technician, Ethan Hyde – Apprentice Technician and Darren Thackeray – Parts Manager. What you may not know, is that as part of our strict franchise arrangements we are required to install genuine diagnostic and servicing equipment for both Subaru and Mitsubishi. In turn, our manufacturers provide regular software upgrades and real time safety and performance updates which ensures your car is maintained as the manufacturer intends. This remarkable software gathers data worldwide to find and isolate any concerns raised in your car as we inspect it in our Tweed and Murwillumbah workshops.

Additionally, our technicians are trained by both manufacturers who built and designed your car and we only use genuine parts.

And, when it comes to the bill…well let’s just say you’ll be pleasantly surprised as we achieve efficiencies with quality equipment and trained technicians.

All these factors add up to an important differentiation between what we actually do as Subaru and Mitsubishi experts as opposed to what other so-called ‘specialist’ workshops claim. We consider these claims to be misleading and reckless as your safety and the performance and retained valued of your vehicle should be the paramount concern.

While we are the Coast’s #1 when it comes to servicing Mitsubishi and Subaru, we also service other makes and models of new and used cars. For technical service you can rely on, may I invite you to give Craig and his team a call on 02 6672 3677.

The bottom line is this… as authorised, genuine service agents for Subaru and Mitsubishi you are guaranteed quality workmanship and genuine parts along with the associated warranties should a part fail. That is, genuine parts warranties cover both the replacement part and the labour to replace it. Not all non-genuine parts have warranties and they certainly don don’tt cover the labour to replace it.

Housing initiatives needed

Price, in last week’s letter, makes a very valid point about the contradictions of what Byron Council aspires to in encouraging low cost hous-

ing and what they actually do in terms of implementing policy. Fast Buck$ has spoken out about it, many others are aware of it but keep silent, but the most effective contributors to low cost housing in this shire are the illegal studio and caravan occupations on rural properties. Council’s response to this situation has become increasingly draconian. In collusion with a few disgruntled (and mostly dysfunctional) tenants they have targeted studio and garage landlords with court cases and monumental fines. As a Lismore Councillor during the eighties I played a major role in implementing SEPP 15 (Multiple Occupancy) as a response to legalising and regulating a growing social and housing phenomenon that contributed to a form of low cost housing. Not perfect al-

ways and not suited to all but I held the opinion then and now that an intelligent response to an affordable housing crisis was to provide the widest possible variety of options. Your cheapest suburban development in this day and age does not provide a realistic housing option for people, particularly singles, at the lower end of the economic spectrum. It would make a lot of sense to regulate an existing reality rather than wage a destructive and socially disruptive war that will leave a serious gap in low cost housing options. If legalisation is unattainable in the short term because of State planning restrictions there is always the temporarily too-hard basket that we used to creative effect in Lismore. It is only the excesses that need restricting, not the norm.

many of these are illuminated. We all know that these shops are (or will be) there, and do not need these huge eyesores to tell us so. This is nothing short of visual pollution and is totally inappropriate for the middle of a residential area. This development is backed by Nature Reserve, Marshalls Creek and the ocean. It is at the lowest part of Ocean Shores and is surrounded on three sides by elevated land which greatly increases visibility. The signage proposed would detract enormously from the scenic beauty and amenity of the area and is thus in contravention of the objectives of Council’s Development Control Plan. I would strongly encourage residents to inspect the DA at Council and to lodge submissions opposing the number, size, position and illumination of these signs. It is an appalling thought that we could be assaulted by even more ugliness than at present. I will be happy to provide further information if required. Please email me at lgordon@linknet.com.au.

A double-dip recession threatens. Where do we go then? Debt is in effect where you promise to work for someone else, but what do you do when you’ve already promised the rest of your working life? Well then, you have to retire later. You have to sell your houses to overseas buyers. You have to sell your resources: hence the Chinese coal firms of our Hunter Valley. Sound familiar? Sound like modern, high debt Australia? Of course, if we’d put our stimulus spending into building the new green grid, each completed power station would already be paying for itself and returning a profit. But we can’t have that now, can we?

attacked my dogs. One of the dogs, a large chocolate brown of unknown breed, picked up my very much smaller dog in his mouth and proceeded to shake him. I reacted quickly and got poor Scruffy out of his mouth, sustaining several bites to my hand and wrist in the process. The owners of the other two dogs were still happily sitting on the beach while all this occurred. An older lady with her two small dogs said that when she walked past those two particular dogs, they were on their chains and appeared rather vicious to her. If the owners knew of their dogs’ dispositions why let them off their leashes on a beach where there are lots of other dog walkers? In fact you are supposed to keep dogs on leashes at that particular beach. Do you owners even know what occurred? You were a long way away from your dogs and they were not under your control. I couldn’t come to talk to you about your dogs’ behaviour because time was of the essence in getting Scruffy to the vet: he was clearly dying. Both my 12 year old daughter

Q Malcolm Price’s letter (Echo, May 18) containing information re council levies on the construction of granny flats or the like, under the new SEPP Affordable Rental Housing, certainly puts the kibosh on any modest entrepreneurial plan I might entertain. Does it have to be so, Byron Shire Council? If Tweed Council can forgo these levies, why not Byron Shire Council also? From where I stand, the lack of availability of affordable rental housing in this Shire has been a blight on the social landscape as long as I can remember, with a serious impact on the lives of some members of my family.

effects her accident has had on her children that is her greatest concern. Kerry and Adam have three children: Lily, 8, Finn, 6, and their little boy Sonny who is just 21 months. ‘One minute their mum was there, the next she was gone,’ says Adam. ‘My mum came over from the UK and she felt like a stranger to them and I was always up at the hospital. Then all of a sudden, there is mum again after two weeks and she looked so different.’ Kerry says she feels the kids thought she had been swapped. ‘One minute I am me, the next I was someone else who looked like a robot. Sonny freaked and has become very clingy with Adam and they all had a week of nightmares when I came home.’ Kerry says the older two have grown accustomed to the change. ‘Now they take the mickey out of me as they know I cannot chase them.’ After initial confusion with government services, the family now have a nanny and other home help three times a week, but Adam is unable to work as he has become the primary care giver to everyone, and this has depleted the family’s finances. A Charity Ball has been organised to help alleviate the pressure of mounting bills. The ball will be held in June with artists such as Lisa Hunt, Susanna Carman, Polaroid Fame, Ellen Briggs and local dance group Mullum Rouge, Paul McMahon and a surprise act. Supporters have also gathered some great items to be auctioned and raffled, such as a double pass to the Mullum Music Festival Gala, a double pass for Balloon Aloft and more. ‘The warmth and love has been overwhelming in the best possible way,’ says Kerry. ‘Mullum is not just the “Biggest Little Town in Australia”, it is the biggest hearted little town anywhere.’ The Charity Ball will be held on Thursday June 3 at the Mulllum Ex-Services Club.

Kerry Garady can hardly remember the day she almost died. She views the ‘halo’ that she now wears, a lucky alternative to the one she might have had, if things had gone even the minutest bit differently in early April when she was kicked by a horse. Kerry and her family were getting ready for an ordinary day when Kerry went to move a horse that she was agisting at her rented property in Myocum. The horse, spooked by a movement in the paddock, kicked Kerry literally out of her shoes, which is where husband Adam found them later, neatly side by side where her feet had been. Kerry was discovered by family friend Charlie Archibald who was slashing a nearby paddock. Kerry’s unconscious state and Charlie’s quick thinking to not move her were the contributing factors that saved Kerry from quadriplegia or death, one small movement could have seen a very different outcome

to Kerry’s condition. Mr Archibald alerted Kerry’s husband Adam and he called emergency services. She was airlifted to Lismore Base Hospital, then on to the Gold Coast Hospital where her injuries were assessed as critical. ‘Apparently I flew to the hospital,’ says Kerry. ‘I remember them telling me I was in a helicopter but all I could see was the roof, I couldn’t turn my head.’ Kerry spent the next ten days in intensive care with extensive damage to her liver, spleen and kidneys, though the major injury causing the greatest concern was that her C2 vertebrae was broken by the force of the kick causing whiplash. She has since been fitted with a halo thoracic brace, which is a metal frame that is screwed into her skull to hold her neck in place. She has been in the brace for over five weeks with at least another seven to go. She will then wear a soft collar while she has begins her rehabilitative physical therapy. Kerry’s injuries have certainly been a challenge but it is the

Busy Kids holds African-inspired art exhibition Busy Kids Childcare Centre at 19 Brigantine Street, Byron Bay, will be holding an African Inspired Art Exhibition 5pm-7pm in the Montessori Room at the centre on Wednesday May 26. The art is created by children aged eight months through to five years in an individual and combined effort. There will be black/white photography, paintings, collage on canvas, sculpture, beading, and story art. Entrance is by gold coin donation and there will be works of art for sale on

the night. Nibbles and wine will be provided free of charge on arrival. According to the Centre, the event has been organised for a dual purpose: to promote Child Care Week and the new Early Years Framework implementation in the centre; and to promote community awareness and interaction via a new pilot program called Kids Matter – Australian Early childhood Mental Health Initiative. The art exhibition will help

parents and children to feel part of the service which creates a sense of community. ‘Our initial influence began when we started our world record attempt for “One Goal: worlds biggest school lesson” on April 20,’ say organisers. ‘This lesson was to raise awareness of the lack of schooling and education available for children around the world, but especially in Africa. (More than 75 million children in the world have no access to education!)

‘From here we began to study the globe, where the continent of Africa is situated. We learned that some of the children’s parents and relatives were born in Africa. We then became more interested in the culture, music, dance and African art. This is where the art ideas took off! ‘Our teachers borrowed books from the library and from parents. Donna (our teacher) showed us pictures of art, sculpture from her collection, textiles, masks etc and

talked about African design and form. We read African folk stories and learned about African lifestyle. ‘From the books The Spirit of African Design and Angaza Africa we studied various designs, tools and artists works to gather inspiration for our own art works. ‘It was amazing to see how the colours and shapes took form on paper using acrylics, sponges, and pieces of wood. The African colours really shine through!’

and I were traumatised by the event. We managed to get him to the emergency vet, Dr Mike, in Alstonville, with only minutes to spare. Scruffy was in a highly critical condition, and remains so, with three broken ribs and a severely punctured lung. He is currently on oxygen, a drip and intravenous morphine. Dr Mike has been an absolute trooper and has managed to keep Scruffy alive. I would like to thank him from the bottom of my heart – especially for his sleepless nights! If you read this, and have any inkling that these were your dogs, I would appreciate you getting in touch. Pippa Crane

Drop the System Here we are, the slaves of Western Democracy, desperately defending our homes from bureaucracy. For home is where our heart opens as we ground securely into our peace of mother earth, grow our vegies, craft, play, and invite our friends to stay. Way back when, we bought hundreds of thousands of acres of unwanted farmland very cheaply, and created vibrant communities beyond the confines of the dominant paradigm. Legislation has sought ever since to extinguish this Inspiration with building codes, drug laws, and general denigration of the Love and Light. The lore of High Cultures (as was the pure vision of the Aquarian Dreamers) is that they attract negativity which has often degraded them. So much so, that the epicentre for alternative peace change is better known as the Ganja capital of Australia. Let’s drop all that rebellion against the System. Hey, let’s just drop the System. It can be done, because the entire System is just a legal fiction. Yup, it’s all made up, and when you know just how, you don’t have to play the game any more. T h at i s h o w w e c a n hold onto the community dreaming, instead of rep e at ing t he program of ‘mine’ endlessly, on and on until we all get a RFID chip to buy and sell. But f i r s t we mus t d o s om e healing... So I’d like you all to send some love and light to the Byron Shire Council officers who told the hippies they were gonna get them off their land coz they had millionaires waiting to buy it. Telepathically tell them they don’t have to play that nasty game. Let’s open our hearts to the pain of making people homeless, and remind those officers their karma will come back to them one day.

Byron YHA goes solar Solar panels have been installed at Byron Bay YHA under a Carbon Reduction Program offered to customers at www.yha.com.au. Every time a customer books an Australian YHA bed on yha.com.au they can choose to contribute $1 towards a Carbon Reduction Program. Launched in December 2008, to date thousands of YHA guests have donated over

$10,000 towards the program. The first project to be funded is the installation of solar panels at Byron Bay YHA to power the hostel’s solar-boosted gas hot water system. It is anticipated that this will result in a 20 per cent saving in carbon emissions. In 2009 Byron Bay YHA recorded over 32,000 overnight stays by more than 12,000 guests.

Cricketing broadcaster and writer Steve Cannane.

The Byron Bay Writers Festival organisers are good sports when it comes to covering popular genres. Said Festival Director Jeni Caffin, ‘It’s no secret that I’m an AFL nut in winter and a cricket tragic in summer. In this year’s Festival program, I’ve managed to bring those two sports to the fore and even trumped them with motorsport.’ Mixed in with the bumper crop of poets, historians, journalists, novelists, playwrights, bloggers, songwriters and biographers are Steve Cannane (cricket), Adam Ramanauskas (AFL) and Mark Skaife (motorsport). ‘Naturally you’ll find these fabulous people in the traditional Thursday Sporting Lunch, but such is the nature of their writing and the human interest in the stories they tell, that they will appear in Marquee sessions across the three days of the Festival,’ said Jeni. Steve Cannane is a Walkley Award winning ABC broadcaster and journalist who has written for The Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian and The Bulletin. First Tests: great Australian cricketers and the backyards that made them (ABC Books) gets to the heart and soul of the game. Says Jeni, ‘This is the first genuine cricket book to make its way to my bedside table. Warm, well researched and personal: it hit me for six.’ www.echo.net.au

Named as one of The Australian’s Most Inspirational People in 2007, Adam Ramanauskas was a key player for Essendon Football Club. At 22, with a premiership under his belt and a huge career promised, Adam was diagnosed with cancer. Penguin Australia will release an autobiography in time for the Festival, detailing his three battles with cancer, his knee reconstruction and, incredibly, his return to elite sport after a two year absence. Equally inspirational and an undoubted sporting icon is Mark Skaife, the most successful driver in Australian motorsport history, surpassing Peter Brock’s record of championship round victories. And yes, there’s a book in him: revving on to the book shelves just days before the Festival will be Skaifey (Random House). Jeni is delighted: ‘I did a major book signing with Mark in Sydney in a former life and he’s extraordinarily witty. You don’t need to be a revhead to enjoy him. This is a hugely entertaining and articulate man.’ Early Bird 3-day passes are on sale now at www.byronbaywritersfestival.com. The entire list of Festival writers, along with complete program and full range of tickets, including feature events, literary lunches, launches and workshops, will be revealed June 4. The Festival runs from August 6 to 8.

The NSW Government’s housing stimulus package has been extended. Already over $1 billion worth of property has been sold under this scheme, benefiting thousands of NSW investors, home buyers and empty nesters. Anyone purchasing a newly built home worth up to $600,000 could get 50% off their stamp duty, representing a saving of up to $11,245. But hurry, this NSW Government stimulus measure finishes 30 June.

Crusoe, Friday, the parrot and the blue couch Story & photo Mary Gardner

The setting has a touch of Robinson Crusoe about it. A blue couch marooned on the beach. A rude shelter of palms and sticks provide shade as I sit, looking out to sea, taking in the pounding surf and the shifting sand. Daniel Defoe’s novel of the shipwrecked Crusoe is a part of our culture. Even without reading it, most people know the tale of the marooned sailor and how he managed for twenty-eight years on his own on a lonely island. And remember

Friday? He was the native man who turned up and became Crusoe’s servant. Published in 1719, Defoe’s story is one of the first English novels and a hugely popular one. His narrative is a reality series in print. I still remember how, as a child, I got drawn in. I was learning, according to psychologists such as Dan Gilbert, how to simulate experiences using my prefrontal cortex. Reading is a powerful way to know a world and imagine other ones. We get to ‘know’ before any experience. There is another layer of culture to every story, fiction or fact. These days, Defoe’s reveals an imperialist one. Crusoe considers the island his ‘colony’ where he farms and hunts as he sees fit. He makes a pet of a parrot and a servant of Friday. He believes he is righteous in attacking the immoral cannibal natives and rescuing their prisoners. He becomes evangelical: Friday is taught English and converted to Christianity. That Crusoe was working in the slave trade when he was shipwrecked is never an issue for him. Neither does he admit to any thoughts of women or children. How was this layer of critique created? The special ability of that prefrontal cortex is mixed with the sociability of our species. As groups of humans, we imagine, act upon these visualisations and then react. In this way, we create identities and form cultures. That reply itself is courtesy of the culture of social and natural sciences. This culture tries to stand apart from specific beliefs such as religion and politics. At its best it holds to humanistic values. These begin with the moral imperative of duty to the wellbeing of all people, across all identities and groupings. The values also include endlessly questioning convictions, including humanist ones. This often painful process is how settlers learn to see colonialism for what it is. How different genders recognise sexism. How the faithful become ecumenical. How legal systems and governments finally include human rights. The stories continue. In 2002, Tim Severin, the explorer of famous routes such as those of Marco Polo, Sinbad and Ulysses, published his experience of retracing the routes of Crusoe. Humanist that he is, he also gave full attention to Friday. Friday, like Crusoe, was a composite character based on real people. Imagine the 1600-1700s when the Spanish exploited the metal wealth of Native Americans and the English, French and Dutch buccaneers robbed them of their spoils. The Miskito people inhabited the Central

American coast from Cape Camarón to Rio Grande. They took sides against the Spanish. Men would join buccaneers, as guides for a share of bounty. A party including ‘Indians’ was one that wouldn’t starve as the Miskito were outstanding fishers. They were known as ‘strikers’ because they excelled in using fishing spears. Modern Miskito still live in houses on stilts. They know their local waters reef by reef, their jungles tree by tree. In 2009, with 279 other indigenous groups, they formed the Community Nation of Moskitia. They declared both independence from and peaceful coexistence with Nicaragua. Their legal representative, Oscar Hodgson, says they want to manage their own natural resources in ways that directly

benefit their communities. They object to continually supplying lobster houses in Northern America. They also object to Nicaraguan government plans for petroleum drilling in their region. As humanists in Australia, we can see parallels with our communities, especially indigenous ones. Mining, destruction, profits and taxes. Yet there is even a closer urgent parallel. In the wake of sand mining, many of our coastal communities are bereft of dunes. Was it still the attitudes of Crusoe that informed developers and councils? Was it lack of input from local guides that placed long term housing shouldering creeks and rivers to one side and stripped coasts to the other? What simulations in the prefrontal cortex ignored the

reality of floodplains and severe coastal storms? From here on the couch, nothing seems more powerful than nature itself. I accept that. What I cannot fathom is how our present culture rewards us for acting in defiance of that power, regardless of the hurts to ourselves or the damage to others. And how is it we lack remorse? We shift blame like sand from one part of the beach to another. We label this bulldozing with soft words like ‘nourishment’ and ‘protection’. We minimise scruples every day, hoping they dry up and blow away. Who cares where they land? But there is a fresh stack of paper in front of us. Our duty insists that we add another layer to the Crusoe story. Humanism is morphing as we see the wellbeing of people is not isolated from the welfare of other forms of life. Did you see the growing flock of white cockatoos now roosting in town? One rumour has it they fled the sound waves of a music festival. Another is that they were forced away from farms with rising crops. Keep reading. Now, we’re after the true history in tracing the flyways of Crusoe’s parrot.

Lisa did her research. She wanted a hot water system with the longest warranty, and she wanted the most efficient system to complement her existing PV system, so that she could reduce her electricity bills and reduce her carbon imprint to do her bit for the environment. She is extremely happy with the results so far from her Apricus system.

Story & photo Victoria Cosford

In late February Penny Holyoak set off on her HarleyDavidson 1600cc together with great friend Judy Ricardo and fluffy white dog Jack to ride 21,000 kilometres around Australia. Diagnosed with advanced cancer 15 months ago, she decided that she wanted to do the trip as a fundraising effort for the Quest of Life Foundation as well as to raise awareness of violence and racial prejudice. She has called it the Courage To Change Ride because it is Penny’s aim to encourage and support individuals to realise the power they have to change their lives and ultimately the communities in which they live. With the end only about three weeks away, Penny, Judy, Jack and the support vehicle had a brief stopover in Byron Bay. Penny told The Echo, ‘The people we’ve met have been amazing. Every time we stop – especially in the remote areas, at roadhouses – people come up to ask us what we’re doing and open their wallets.’ The girls have been able to keep almost perfectly to their schedule, apart from a 3-day pause in Burnie, Tasmania, as they waited for a big storm to pass. The weather has favoured them: ‘We’ve been so lucky,’

achievement she will surely feel must compensate. People are able to donate to Penny’s Courage To Change campaign by visiting her very comprehensive website www. penscouragetochange.com.au or ‘they can just email to say hi!’ said Penny as she settled Jack the dog, goggles and all, into his pillion position.

said Penny, ‘We had one storm as we rode into Broome and one as we left; we’ve had one or two rainy nights but that’s all!’ Heat and humidity have constituted a bit of a challenge. ‘That was pretty tough but on the whole we’ve done OK!’ It was while she was undergoing chemotherapy that the

inspiration for the ride struck. She had always had places like the Greek islands or New York on her ‘bucket list’ but ‘the more I thought about it, the more I realised I really wanted to see more of our country and ride the motorbike around it. What I wanted was for my life not to be a waste, but to be

an inspiration for others who struggle, a crusade to give people hope and to let them know they don’t have to be victims.’ Penny herself has a background of sexual, alcohol and drug abuse but at a certain point in her life reassessed what she was doing and ‘through reading, affirmations, counselling

Why we need to build new mobile phone facilities

In order to provide reliable, continuous mobile coverage and internet access we need to install a network of low-powered facilities across the region to pick up and transmit the phone signals.

We hear community concern about EME issues Optus adheres to national public health regulations and operates its networks at power levels signiÅcantly below established safety

limits.All mobile phone base stations are required to comply with strict regulations on public exposure limits. These limits are set out in the Radiocommunications (Electromagnetic Radiation – Human Exposure) Standard 2003 and are administered by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) . The Standard is based on safety limits that have been set by the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA), an agency of the Federal Government. Carriers operating mobile base stations require a licence to do so and compliance with licence conditions is mandatory.

Community information session Optus has identiÅed possible sites to locate a telecommunications facility in the Bangalow area. Optus is holding a community drop in information session (details provided below). Optus would like the opportunity to provide further details on the investigated options and to give interested members of the public an opportunity to have any queries answered.

MAKE MONEY OFF YOUR ROOF WITH SOLAR

Solar electricity is now a sound financial investment as well as an investment in the future of our planet thanks to a number of fantastic incentives. The new solar electricity rebate or “Solar Credits Scheme” is now open to everyone including businesses. It represents thousands of dollars towards the initial cost of your system which SolarSwitch offers as a generous point of sale discount. If you are approved for the previous $8000 Federal Government rebate SolarSwitch can install your system prior to rebate expiry, please visit our website for more information. NSW now also has the most generous solar buyback scheme in the country. Anyone with a solar electricity system under 10kW will get paid at least 60c per kilowatt hour, almost four times the retail rate, for all the electricity their panels generate. For example someone with an average 1.5kW home solar electricity system would get credited $1300- $1500 per year for the electricity their system produces. This means your investment pays for itself in less than four

years and then makes you thousands of dollars over the next 20 plus years. The scheme is only available for the first 50 Megawatts installed in NSW so now is the perfect time to install solar so you don’t miss out. As this is a 25 year investment in your home or business it is important to buy quality equipment backed by a reputable multi-national company with offices in Australia, so the warranty is held here. Also ensure your system is installed by a qualified Clean Energy Council accredited electrician, and they are on site the entire time. Having installed over 2500 solar electricity systems in NSW SolarSwitch has the knowledge, expertise and dedicated staff to carry out your installation in a timely and professional manner. “We pride ourselves on installing quality equipment sourced from reputable manufacturers that will be around to honour your 25 year manufacturer’s warranty… this is a lifetime investment after all” said Adam Tesoriero, Director of SolarSwitch. SolarSwitch offer the highest quality monocrystalline solar panels and German inverters that are the

most efficient and widely used in the world. “We are an authorized dealer for Australian made and owned SilexSolar panels, German Multi-National Conergy and US Multi- National SunPower who offer the most efficient solar panels in the world, a 300W panel” said Mr Tesoriero. Each installation is managed and carried out by SolarSwitch’s licensed, insured and Clean Energy Council accredited electricians. “So with all the rebates now available, the new solar buy-back scheme and electricity prices skyrocketing there’s never been a better time to install solar. Why wait when you can cut your energy costs and start helping the environment today” said Mr Tesoriero.

COMPOST BYRON SURVEY RESULTS SO FAR [SURVEY CLOSES ON 4TH JUNE]

Council’s recent online survey www.surveymonkey. com/s/compostbyron is showing some interesting trends. Fill out the survey and win great prizes. So far most folk feel it simply makes good sense to compost (82%) and it’s an easy way to help our environment by reducing harmful greenhouse gases. The main issues seem to be : Q having tried composting and failed Q concern about mice and rats Q not feeling confident enough but willing to learn Q the need for our kids to learn how

HAVE YOUR SAY! Google ‘compost byron’ or go to Council’s web site www.byron.nsw.gov.au

Q the need to work with schools Q liking the idea of cheap compost bins Q free demos and workshops are popular ideas to switch people on Q lots of folk would prefer to compost at home for free rather than pay for a service. Comments favouring composting include: ‘I think there are lots of people who don’t compost but with a little more information and encouragement they would probably start’ ‘I think an awareness will spread in greater and greater circles and the connection to food and where it comes from will finally drop into place.’ Council has also been running free and quick composting demos at markets around the shire and the response has been amazing! So if you want to learn how… and have a spare 5 mins... mini workshops will be happening each morning at NEW BRIGHTON and MULLUMBIMBY farmers markets for the next few weeks. CHEAP COMPOST BINS ARE ALSO ON SALE AT COUNCIL FOR $35 AND WORM FARMS AT $45 - BOTH MADE FROM RECYCLED PLASTIC. WHAT A BARGAIN!

In Byron Shire about half of what we throw into the garbage bin is food and garden vegetation. This waste goes to our Myocum Landfill site and it could go onto your garden!

They say you are what you eat, so while I’m a flesh consuming ‘pig’, by applying the same cliche, that would make my vegetarian friends ‘nuts’. Pigs and Nuts don’t mix. I attended a BBQ at a friend’s house in Nimbin recently (yes I know, BBQ in Nimbin is an oxymoron) and was bemused to find one of the other guests wearing what looked like an eight year old’s t-shirt. It was a midriff. Exposing the snail trail is an unusual look on a 50 plus bloke, although he could get away with it, being Keith Richards thin. For a minute I thought he was an actor from Spinal Tap, or the host’s attempt at a practical joke. How funny, Nick’s got a real live 1970's hippy here! Let me guess, Grateful Dead? The shirt screamed in giant bold lettering: VEGAN FOR LIFE. That’s a rather aggressive choice of moniker for a friendly backyard sausage sizzle. It felt like the micro shirt was no accident. It was his attempt to spread the word, one barbie at a time. VEGAN FOR LIFE isn’t moderate. It’s extreme. That’s like going to church with a Nietzsche shirt blaring the good news to the congregation: ‘GOD’S DEAD’. Or rocking up to work at a child care centre in a ‘SUPPORT DENNIS FERGUSON’ tee. I have to say, Mr VEGAN FOR LIFE was not the picture of health or happiness. He looked miserable and hungry. He was just a bloke with low zinc and a protein deficit in the presence of meat. Being vegan is a pretty major lifestyle choice. It means that unless you circulate with other vegans, chances are you are going to be the dude in the corner sulking into his lettuce leaf. It means that your meat eating friends are heartless killers, tearing into flesh sambos with carnivorous abandon.

Mandy Nolan

7&("/ '03 -*'& My attitude towards vegans is the same as my attitude towards Born Again Christians. You’re weird. Go Away. That’s a joke. (I have to explain that because both lifestyle choices demand the removal of the humour gland.) Now my furry fundamentalists, I respect your personal choice but all I ask is, don’t shove your belief system down my throat. It’s busy, there’s an aetheist sausage in there already.

Ironically, if you want to save an animal, then start eating it. By human design it’s in our best interest to ensure that animals in the food chain flourish. Want to save the panda? Start eating them. Pretty soon there will be panda farms all over China. By now I can say pretty much what I like about Vegans because the’re so low in protein and B12 they would have fallen asleep. They’ll want to hit me, but they’ll always be three beats behind. (If you’ve tried to get quick service at a health food store you’ll know what I mean. There’s a satellite delay from the brain to the mouth.) I can understand being a vegetarian, I once managed two years as one myself. But Vegan? A life without cheese? Sure, you might live longer, but what would be the point? You can’t eat cheese!

A friend lent me a book called ‘Skinny Bitch’. I just thought it was a nice way of telling me I was fat. Turns out it was Vegan Propaganda! I’d just been to see one of the best nutritionists in the country who told me I wasn’t eating enough protein and I had to increase my meat intake. Next thing I read this From a pure ‘walking light on the book by two anorexic women from planet let’s consume chemical free some American modelling agency food’ I actually like the idea of being who advocated being Vegan by a Vegan. In reality, I couldn’t do it. The basically not eating anything at all. best I could manage is a slogan that They also claimed to be nutritionists. read ‘VEGAN FOR A WEEK’. It’s just so Now I’m confused. To Meat or not unsatisfying. I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be eating to Meat‌that is the question. Even the Dalai Lama has started eating tofu. I’m all for salad, but I’m just not meat. Pretty soon he’ll be in one of ready to commit. Take the ‘L’ out of those posters you see at the butcher's Salad and it’s.‌ SaaD! Vegans look depressed. Who could blame them, all holding a tray of eye fillet sharing they have to look forward to is lentils his cooking tips: ‘I just use a knob of and macadamia cream.

Kicking off the first of many gigs there will be the newly formed ensemble, The Hans Lovejoy Trio, this Saturday night. It promises to be a fine night of intimate jazz, and it is hoped it will become a staple venue of the North Coast. ‘There simply isn’t many places to play this type of music,’ says double bassist Hans. ‘This is music that needs the right set-up – the room, the acoustics, the crowd.' The band have focused on what they love – playing sophisticated music that requires outstanding musianship. ‘This ensemble has a great love for jazz trio piano music – Ahmad Jamal, Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans and the like,’ says Hans. ‘It is music that pushed swing, harmony and interaction to a new level. It takes a lot of time to get it right, but it’s all worth it. Joining Hans will be pianist Fred Cole and drummer Ben ‘BB’ Cox. ‘It is a real joy to hear and play this music; it’s a rarity. There is no real incentive financially to do this and thankfully we see the benefits outside of economics.’ Food starts at 6.30pm and music from 7pm.

acclaim Grant Stevens must surely have right to the title of hardest working comedian in the UK. It is not hard to see why Stevens is so popular, he possesses an energy and intellect which combined make for dynamite comedy. A cross between Russell Brand and Dylan Moran! With Mandy Nolan as MC, and Mullum mum Ellen Briggs as support. This show will be a bloody ripper!!! 8pm. $15/20. Bookings 6684 3443 or tix at the club.

Television Guide

WEDNESDAY 26

1. Peter Gallagher and Sandra Bullock star in While You Were Sleeping (Prime, Friday, 8.30pm), a pleasant romantic comedy in which we are asked to believe that Ms Bullock is your average tollbooth operator. 2. Gretchen Mol plays The Notorious Bettie Page (SBS1, Saturday, 9.45pm), the pin-up model who came under US Senate investigation because of her bondage activities. Of course no politician would have taken advantage of her services. These days Bettie would be right at home at Dr Sketchy’s in the Bay. 3. Treks in A Wild World (ABC1, Sunday, 6.30pm) are for travellers who like to step outside their comfort zone.

cCINEMAREVIEWSd Letters To Juliet Elderly patrons account for the tiniest percentage of cinema goers. Consequently, leading parts written for old blokes are few (and hogged by the likes of Christopher Plummer and Robert Duvall), while for women in their seventies they are as rare as hens’ teeth. Vanessa Redgrave, agit-prop icon of the swingin’ sixties, is a natural as Claire who, when a teenager in Verona fifty years earlier, left a letter of remorse in the wall of Shakespeare’s Juliet after reneging on an assignation with Lorenzo, her Italian lover. Redgrave has won countless accolades for her performance, but this is due to a fawning faction that viewed it through rose-coloured glasses. She is impressive (if occasionally off with the fairies), exhibiting an Olympian aura reserved for stars of time-honoured (i.e., quasi royal) status, but the film belongs hands down to

Amanda Seyfried. A natural beauty of unforced charm and warmth, Seyfried has made the step from significant support player (‘Mama Mia’, TV’s Big Love) to legitimate protagonist. As Sophie from The New Yorker magazine, she comes into possession of the letter and devotes herself to re-uniting Claire with Lorenzo and, with Claire’s grandson Charlie (Christopher Egan), they traipse around the countryside deleting potential lost boyfriends from a phone-book list, growing despondent as the prospect of fulfilling their quest diminishes. The real Lorenzo (Franco Nero), galloping into frame like Don Ben Cartwright on a chestnut stallion, is found at the eleventh hour and, crucially, he is widowed (as if he could have been otherwise). He lives in a handsome but not pretentious stone villa surrounded by vineyards atop a sunny hill, where he and his extended family dine al

As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name Kick Ass, assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There’s only one problem, Kick Ass has absolutely no superpowers. Among those watching the emergence of this new Kick Ass with extreme interest are two other amateur costumed crazies: the dynamically deranged father-daughter duo of Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) and Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz). The film’s most provocative element is the disturbingly dangerous Hit-Girl. The film emphatically crosses the line with this character, a child whose age is outnumbered many times over by her body count of villains. The movie is adapted from a well-known comic book under the direction of British filmmaker Matthew Vaughn. Kick-Ass starts out by tricking its audience into thinking they can see what’s coming. By all means be fooled, but be prepared to be shocked, thrilled, appalled and blasted back into your seat when you Kick Ass least expect it! Kick-Ass gets Kick Ass focuses on your stuck into every superhero average teenager, Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) who movie ever made.

fresco under a chestnut tree in the dappled light of a Tuscan sun – at which point it is fair to ask: if you weren’t anticipating precisely this outcome then what were you doing here in the first place? Predictability is what we demand from such stories, the classic romance being the cockroach of genres for its refusal to die (and good on it). Gael Garcia Bernal is weasely and appropriately selfabsorbed as Victor, Sophie’s unworthy fiancÊ, but Egan (another Home And Away graduate), resembling Heath Ledger with an embarrassingly bad English accent, proves worthy of Sophie’s heart, as was pre-ordained from the moment of their first testy meeting. An expertly manipulative soundtrack (including a whacky I’m A Believer in Italian), a golden palette and picture postcard locations make for a pleasing sojourn. As sweet as a six-pack of Tim Tams, it worked for me. ~ John Campbell

TAURUS: This intense week could reveal unresolved feelings you’re holding on to from the past around love and money – flashbacks which keep unfolding until Friday’s full moon in your astro-zone of shared values opens a more abundant new chapter in the Tauran life story. GEMINI: Happy birthday Geminis! You mediagenics are even more in the spotlight than ever this week and it’s important who you choose to associate with, so be discriminating. Not to mention practising the fine art of telling unwelcome truths without getting others offside.

Since the World Championship match ended last week, the two competitors have been revealing some secrets behind their preparation and it seems that, more than a decade after World Champion Garry Kasparov was humiliated by IBM’s Deep Blue computer, Kasparov has enjoyed a modicum of revenge. Defeated world title challenger Veselin Topalov (pictured below) has disclosed that he was granted access by the Prime Minister of Bulgaria, Boyko Borisov, to the Blue Gene P supercomputer to help with preparation for his world title challenge against Viswanathan Anand.

The use of such a computer also Anand’s plans for Topalov. Kasparov – who had worked explains why Topalov could be so definitive when he claimed that officially as Carlsen’s trainer in he missed clear wins in games 3, 5 2009 – also approached Anand, and 10 against Anand – whereas who then sent a series of quein the first two of these games ries to the Russian ex-World most commentators saw no more Champion to check against his famed opening files. than a slight edge for Topalov.

Kramnik was whinging about Kramnik and Magnus Carlsen. Carlsen, the 19-year-old world Anand’s poor opening choices number one from Norway, has – mostly Kramnik’s own open-

CAPRICORN: While it feels like everyone and everything’s blocking your every move right now, it isn’t and they aren’t. It’s more like if plan A bombs and falls over, plan B suddenly gets up. As one encounter dents your confidence, the next reboots it. Stay positive. AQUARIUS: Inconsistency levels are high right now and decision making isn’t particularly easy for anyone, but could the cosmos still be supporting radical adjustments to your career, relationships, finances and life path? It could, so convert the stumbling blocks this week presents into stepping stones. PISCES: Pisceans are probably best equipped to deal with the current fluctuations, tribulations and relationship complications if they remember just this one thing: intentional acts of generosity to those who deserve it are more rewarding this week than random acts of kindness to strangers.

ings! – to a friend of Anand’s and the two were put in touch with each other. Anand later admitted ‘Kramnik’s help was actually priceless.’ Of course Anand could not afford to neglect the technical arms race, so when he learned during the match that Topalov had the 112 core supercomputer, the Indian World Champion managed to obtain a 16 core computer for himself; far weaker than Topalov’s machine but still exceptionally fast. In the end, Anand plus his human team managed to outwit Topalov plus IBM by the smallest possible margin – principally because Anand’s nerves were stronger than those of his (human) opponent. Topalov, however, is not giving up. He will begin the elimination bouts to become Anand’s new challenger next year and he retains access to the Sofia IBM machine for that period. Kramnik, Carlsen and others stand in Topalov’s way, so there should be no love lost when the 2011 Candidates matches commence.

VIRGO: With Friday’s full moon in your domestic sector even if it’s the last thing you feel like, lavishing love on your home zone and its occupants is a must. Don’t cling to habitual ways of operating – insisting on how things ought to be will only cause extra stress.

LIBRA: As opposing needs exert a magnetic pull in different directions, this week intensifies your existential balancing act between optimism and realism, living the dream vs. paying the bills – but early week Libra moon helps you juggle diverse agendas into some kind of manageable package. SCORPIO: This button-pushing week mixes a dynamic social cocktail which could agitate personal relationships. But midweek Scorpio moon can bring a profoundly transformational shakeup if you’re open to it, so stay tuned to that sixth sense that always protects your best interests. SAGITTARIUS: Is that you spitting sparks because someone’s behaving like Barbara from Bankworld? Strategic planning works better than direct confrontation this week, so cool it till Friday’s annual full moon in your sign – then nothing could stop you diving into the many-splendoured attractions on offer.

SNIPPETS CUISINE SCENE NEWS Michael Ridderhof recently celebrated the first anniversary of Bangalow’s Foodworks. One year ago he took over ownership of the store and during that time has been commended by the local community for his focus on customer service, convenience and employment of local youth. Michael has been responsible not only for extended opening hours – he opens till 9.30 every evening seven days a week – but also for focusing on stocking local and organic produce where possible. Other local news includes the imminent relaunch of Tippy Heng’s Traditional Thai restaurant in Fletcher Street, Byron Bay, on Wednesday May 26. Next door to his exquisite ‘tea house’ Orient Express (like a jewel box and serving fantastic Pan-Asian food), it is a more affordable, family-friendly option. Orient Express itself will close during June and part of July as Tippy goes travelling and tasting around Asia; Traditional Thai will trade as usual with its exciting new winter menu, also to be launched on May 26. And Pacific Dining Room at the Byron Beach Hotel is making way for Laurie Rose’s next venture, Italian at the Pacific – just what we have all been waiting for! At Byron Beach Cafe the plan is to run 3-4 different night-time events over winter, and kicks off this Wednesday May 26 with a special Gemtree Wine dinner. Winemaker Mike Brown will discuss his biodynamic wines over a fabulous 6-course meal; tickets at $125 a head can be booked on 6685 8400.

SALMON CAVIAR More than 10,000 salmon are being individually hand-milked for caviar at Yarra Valley Salmon, the only fresh water aquaculture farm in Australia to milk Atlantic Salmon by hand. The plump bright caviar has been winning awards around the country, its superior quality due to the way in which the salmon are treated. No antibiotics or chemicals are used and the fish are allowed plenty of room to move around. The fact they are gently hand-milked under the entirely natural anaesthetic of clove oil contributes enormously to the flawless condition of the roe; the fish are not caused undue stress and are returned to their fresh water environment and spawn again the following year.

BOOK NOW FOR MOTHERS DAY

From Milkshakes to Wine Next month sees the release of an Australian movie called The Wog Boy 2, sequel to the 2000 comedy by Nick Giannopoulus The Wog Boy. Set on the Greek island of Mykonos, it may well cause a resurgence of interest in both the island and Greek culture itself. Of the movie, Nick has been quoted as saying that it was inspired by his own sense of displacement from being a Greek Australian; returning to the country of his parents, his character realises he is more Australian than Greek. Greeks constitute the seventh largest ethnic group in Australia, their language being the fourth most commonly spoken after English, Chinese and Italian. Melbourne is often amusingly referred to as one of the largest Greek cities in the world. And one of the greatest contributions to Australia by Greeks was the milk bar. I still remember clearly our family holidays from Canberra to the South Coast, the Vauxhall Victor lumbering to a halt at Braidwood or Mittagong where we would stop at Greek milkbars for milkshakes out of stainless steel cups. Called something like The Paragon, they would have booths for sitting in and serve mixed grills and fish and chips. The country’s very first such enterprise happened in 1932 in Sydney’s Martin Place, opened by a Greek immigrant who had renamed himself Mick Adams: he called it the Black and White Milk Bar. Queensland’s first outlet opened several years later beside the Regent Theatre; soon they were springing up everywhere, offering inexpensive eat-in meals and often 24-hour service. By the 1930s they were selling groceries and were hubs of community spirit – a decade later the introduction of supermarkets signalled the beginning of their end. Peter Panousis is the Area Manager for upmarket wine company Mezzanine Wines – and is also the great-nephew of one of the first Greek cafe owners in Surfers Paradise, called The Plaza Cafe. His parents moved up from Mudgee in the early ‘60’s and ‘I was brought up in that environment’, he tells me over coffee (in a modern-day cafe). It was, he tells me, a ‘standard Greek caff of the

‘50’s, the type you find in those country towns’, and as a child he would hang around there to help out, ‘filling salt and pepper shakers, folding napkins…’ It appears that the experience proved a formative influence contributing toward Peter’s future path: despite a desire to ‘get into law’, he became inspired by a talk on hospitality on Career Guidance Day by fourth year students from Gatton College who visited his school. So off to Gatton College he went to do a four-year degree in hospitality, which included the business side as well – ‘accounting, economics, business management, communications, food science, food technology.’ He knew that he was good with people so ended up, eventually, outside of rather than inside commercial kitchens, moving from Duty Manager to teacher of restaurant management, partnering in restaurants and lecturing in food and beverage, somehow finding time in all that to marry and travel overseas. And finally winding up still in hospitality but in a role he loves, which involves being on the road between Beenleigh and Lismore five days a week representing wine companies, meeting people, conducting tastings, speaking at events. He especially loves his forays down to the NSW Northern Rivers because ‘there are some really good operators down here, conscious and accepting of new varieties and new trends (in wine)… they’re really into food and wine and I want to help them out with whatever I can offer.’ Having myself experienced Peter in action (to whom I will be forever grateful for explaining so succinctly to me the difference between pinot gris and pinot grigio) I can attest to his passion, professionalism and communicability. Absorbed unconsciously, subliminally, without a doubt, as a child solemnly helping out at his great-uncle’s cafe: the art of hospitality, which is, after all, contributing toward the pleasure of others. Anyone interested in wine-tastings or wine dinners can contact Peter Panousis on 0421 050 228.

Sanders the butler had the pool drained and refilled just in time for our annual masquerade. Respecting the Shire’s restrictions we had the water flown in from a bore in Dubai. Abbotsleigh had stained the pool a rather muddy purple by dropping a crate of Main Arm Upper Post Election Tristesse Cabernet Shiraz into it but now it sparkled a clear cerulean. The incident later in the night with the crocodile was an unfortunate side-effect from Tosser Digby’s latest hunting expedition in the Gulf. The Club’s dominatrix-on-call, Bizzy Lizzy, brought along some of her female compadres to make up the numbers, as a masquerade is nothing without women and the Club rules were accordingly waived for the night. Bizzy Lizzy is a feast for jaundiced eyes at any time but she brought with her Fatima Versace, a distant cousin of the great Marchesa Casati, who wore a tiger mask, a peacock feather skirt, a string of jet beads interspersed with pearls, and very little else. It was common knowledge in Verona that just the sight of her lips could bring a grown man to tears and, as Camberwell stared at her now, one could almost see his brain cells melting like cheese on a hot grill. The garden was ablaze with torches and looked like a tableau from a Rousseau, dominated by a giant purple crocus Digby had harvested among dozens in a secluded valley near Nyalam, after narrowly avoiding a mauling by a snow leopard through the judicious use of prayer flags and a mashie niblick (the loft of 41 degrees being noted in the control of big cats). Signorina Versace swept up the marble staircase, trailing a host of swooning and emotionally damaged gentlemen. Sanders handed her a Flaming Princess, made from three parts gin, two parts brandy, one part hubris, and two parts insouciance and lit with a gold-plated taper held by a Russian gymnast.

Turning to a drooling Camberwell, the young lady said, ‘Follow me with that taper, please,’ and glided onwards to the temporary dormitory we had rigged up for guests on the third storey. (Our smitten member might have been in with a chance with the glorious signorina had he not misheard her instructions and brought along a South American herbivore instead.) By all accounts it was a glittering event, replete with the forbidden and dangerous assignations which make a good masquerade. Chef’s antechinus on toast were a treat at three in the morning and the chamber orchestra, A Haydn To Nothing On Acid, set the romantic mood perfectly. We heard later on that Signorina Versace had been banned from several Byron Bay nightclubs because the patrons had been too besotted to drink.

Bangalow gets served by Yamba Byron union slips beneath Kyogle The Yamba Buccaneers exacted revenge for the grand final loss to Bangalow last year, in a big way. The team won the match convincingly 55-0 at Yamba. With eight players unavailable, Bangalow fielded a team but had no reserves. Against a quality Yamba side, it was always going to be a long day at the office without reserves and players playing in different positions for the first time. Yamba’s full strength side dominated every facet of the game, scoring 19 points in the first half and continuing to score in the second. To their credit, every Bangalow player stepped up, defending gallantly. Bangalow were their own worst enemies at times, making it easy for Yamba to score soft tries with poor kicking, handling and general decision-making. When Bangalow did get the ball it was often scrappy from Yamba’s pressure, which made it hard to launch any attacking moves, but the day was not all doom and gloom. The highlight of the match was Brian Davis, usually a

winger, playing his first game as prop, showing great promise and being awarded ‘players player’ for a courageous performance against a formidable scrum. Other stand out players were Greg Cromwell for his bodyon-the-line work in the tight, Pommy fullback Jaimie for his try-saving tackles and captain Jock Craigie for his tireless work rate.

Special note must go to wild Welshman Griff for his impersonation of ‘rocky’. Unfortunately one of his haymakers landed on the wrong nose, smacking half back Andrew Gribble fair between the eyes. Bangalow have now dropped out of the top four in fifth position and will need to start winning starting this weekend at home against Evans Head at 2.30pm.

46 May 25, 2010 The Byron Shire Echo

Just as predicted, the game between second and third on the ladder proved to be as tough and hard fought as expected. Kyogle came to Byron with a gelled forward pack and a nononsense backline. However, not to be outdone at home, Byron’s forward pack came to the party and muscled up against the bigger side showing big hearts and a winning desire. Kyogle struck it lucky with two penalties inside Byron’s 40m line with a kicker which showed us that he would make us pay for any mistakes inside our half.

Not being fazed by the score, Byron showed why they are in the top three by turning the ball over at the kickoff and making hard yards towards Kyogle’s try line. Five out from the line Byron went to the backline, where they found forward Paul Pritchard hitting the ball at pace to cross over for the first try of the game. The second half proved to be even tougher than the first with both sides struggling for dominance and desire to win. Byron showed some sterling defence never letting the visitors cross our line the whole

game. This coupled with some great running by the backline, in particular, inside centre Matt Dennis and first five Nigel Magney who both showed great attacking vision to find holes in the visitors backline, to keeping Byron in sight of the visitors. However due to some small mistakes at crucial times Byron couldn’t get back into the game with Kyogle slotting two more penalties. The points for the match went three for Matt Dennis, two for Greg Munro and one for Scott Smith with the ‘players player’ also going to Matt.

Fighting homophobia in sport The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) recognises the importance of tackling homophobia and has formed an important partnership with the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC) to address homophobic attitudes and behaviour in sport. May 17 marked International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO) and the theme for this year’s campaign is ‘Speaking about silence – homophobia in the sports world’. ASC Sports Performance and Development Assistant Director Nadine Cohen said that a recent national survey of same-sex attracted young people identified that the secondmost threatening environment for abuse was within sport. ‘To address these concerns, the ASC and the VEOHRC are trialling a 12 month anti-

homophobia project to reduce the experience and impact of homophobia in a national sporting code, which will form the benchmark strategy for other sporting codes and their governing bodies,’ said Ms Cohen. ‘We are working with the VEOHRC to effect cultural and behavioural change in sport across many areas including bullying and harassment, player well-being and discrimination, with a focus on addressing homophobia.’ VEOHRC’s Commissioner Dr Helen Szoke said the project will aim to saturate one sporting code with a range of resources and information and capacity-building materials to address the issue of homophobia in sport. ‘The pilot program sport will be announced in June 2010,’ she said ‘In the general sense, we understand sport is a very

powerful vehicle to reach the population, to educate and empower, to enable people’s voices to be heard.’ The project will determine effective ways to create safe and welcoming sporting environments through the prevention of homophobic behaviour. It will also establish how these strategies can be adapted to reduce the occurrence of other discriminatory barriers to sport participation. ‘The ASC is committed to partnering with the sport industry to uphold the principles of fairness, respect, responsibility and safety. Being a part of promoting IDAHO and working with the VEOHRC are some of the initiatives the ASC is focusing on to maximise participation of all Australians in sport, regardless of their ethnicity, religion, sexuality or gender,’ said Ms Cohen.

Mullum Giants give pesky Papists the flick

The Mullumbimby Giants survived a pulsating final ten minutes to maintain their unbeaten start to the NRRRL season with a 20-14 win over Marist Brothers at Les Donnelly Field on Saturday evening. But it didn’t come easy. Leading 20-8 well into the

second half, the Giants were awarded a penalty under the sticks. The option of a fourteen-point buffer was scorned in favour of a failed attempt at notching another try and Brothers, realizing that they were still in the game when they should have been buried, responded with a bullish last hurrah.

NCAS presents Surf Life Saving program The North Coast Academy of Sport (NCAS) Surf Life Saving Program is calling for nominations for athletes from branches, SLS Clubs, coaches and athletes for the 2009-10 Program. Athletes who are turning 1420 years of age, between October 1 in the year of selection and September 30 in the following year (matches SLS age classification period U15-U21) may nominate. Note that U14 Athletes will not be eligible in 20010-11. Kingscliff Beach Club, through their commitment to the ClubsNSW community development expenditure support, has provided cash sponsorship to the program to assist in delivering quality coaching and athlete support services. The new squad will undertake an athlete induction, fitness testing on board, ski & swim, skills assessment using video analysis on board and ski, and a general discussion of season preparation and training requirements. NCAS Surf Life Saving’s primary focus is on developing each athlete’s skills and fitness in preparation for branch, country, state and national titles of the coming season. As well as the sport-specific weekends, athletes, their parwww.echo.net.au

ents and squad coaches will also attend an education camp in November where specialist consultants will provide lectures and workshops on sports nutrition, drugs awareness, sports psychology, core strength, injury prevention, time management and media relations skills. NCAS’s Surf Life Saving has delivered this format of program since it was established in 2002. It was the first regionally-based and delivered junior identification and development program of its type in Australia. The program is underpinned by three surf life saving branches at Mid North Coast, North Coast and Far North Coast. The strength of the partnership between NCAS and the supporting branches is further enhanced by having coaches from each branch becoming assistant coaches of the NCAS squad which allows for ongoing coaching, monitoring and encouragement in between NCAS squad camps. As well as attending each camp, these coaches provide ongoing coaching and encouragement to the athletes under their care between each camp. By working with head coach Peter Kirkwood and other assistant coaches, each coach

Had they not fumbled the ball near the line in the dying seconds, they might have earned a not entirely warranted draw. Captain Jarred Flick, defying the prop’s unwritten law, muscled over for the opening two tries and he was followed in quick succession by centre Luke Woods and winger Bill

Thompson. Full-back Matt Mulcahey, promoted from the U18s, came ever so close to adding to the flurry of scoring when he made a thrilling eighty-metre break, only to see his final pass go astray. It hardly mattered at the time, for Mullum’s forwards had established a clear superiority. Their momentum was irresistible and, when called upon to tackle, they drove in hard with a punishing defence that had the Brothers repeatedly making clearing kicks from their own territory. At 20-0, the competition points seemed as good as in the bank, but a glut of penalties to the visitors helped them get on the board before the break, with their gangly right winger starting to be a thorn in the Giants’ side. Penalties again assisted the visitors’ cause early in the second half, a succession of four in a row inside Mullum’s twenty eventually leading to a try that sent a ripple of anxiety through the home bench. The ref had not endeared himself to the mob, prompting a cry from the bleachers of ‘you’ve given them enough help now haven’t you?’ The entreaty was a reasonable one (and it made a welcome change from ‘get ‘em onside!’), but with

Nat Caldwell selected to play Futsal in the UK At the recent Vikings Pacific Futsal Titles held on the Gold Coast, under 15s goal keeper Nat Caldwell was noticed by Vikings Australian team selectors after saving 175 attempts at goal and conceding only 26 goals. As a result, Nat has been selected as goal keeper for the Vikings Australian under 15s team which will travel to the UK in October. The three week tour will see Nat and the team play games against the best Futsal teams in the UK including Liverpool, Norwich and Southport. The tour will also provide the opportunity to train with the UK’s best, with visits to Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool. Nat not only looks forward to further training overseas in the UK and later Brazil, but representing the northern NSW region at the Vikings National Futsal Championships in January 2011. gains knowledge and experience that is reinvested back into future juniors at club and branch level. To complete an Application Form go to the downloads section on the NCAS website and download the Information pack. Please note that applications must be endorsed by your club and close on 29 May 2010.

In 2009 Nat was selected as a part of the Vikings Australian Team to compete in Brazil. This tour remains Nat’s highlight to date. The training and competition was grueling, but Nat was rewarded by being selected by the Brazilians to play during a friendly game – something Nat holds close to his heart. Experiencing Brazil where Football and Futsal are the way of life, Nat immersed himself wholeheartedly in their culture and is looking forward to returning in 2011 for further training.

their lead reduced to twelve and their opponents growing in resolve, the Giants needed to set themselves for a torrid run to the winning post. On the surge, and on the back of a penalty given for an unambiguous head-high, Marist took advantage of the invitation into Mullum’s territory by scoring the converted try that took the score to a stressful 20-14. A brain explosion at the restart saw the ball kicked out on the full, allowing the Brothers free passage deep into Mullum’s half again. Things were now officially beyond a joke, but the Giants held their nerve and to their supporters’ immense relief, the Papists dropped the pill. In Sunday’s game, the Byron Bay Red Devils went down to Northern United 32-30. Third quarter

Michael Borenstein was the first person to ‘give me a go’ at theatre. Real theatre, that is, where your parents aren’t sitting in the front of the school auditorium clapping like loons and saying ‘that’s my girl’. Years later, I see he is still at it: giving young actors a ‘go’ and in so doing, also responding to audience need. And audiences are not only needy – they are a greedy lot as well. Friday night’s opening performance of Chatroom did not leave the audience wanting: they walked out of the Drill Hall Theatre in Mullumbimby a little fuller in the knowledge that youth theatre is alive and well and thriving in this tidy town, burgeoning with theatre, music, art and live performance in general. Let’s face it – live performance is a dying art unless people like Michael Borenstein keep it alive, giving their time, energy, and above all, their years of experience and knowledge in all things theatre. Michael has brought these six young actors into the limelight and didn’t they all shine! Chatroom is contemporary theatre at its best, dealing with issues of ‘now’ and setting these issues in cyberspace, where we all seem to have unlimited access, unfettered, to as many ‘chatrooms’ as we might need to fill in lonely, desperate, playful, aggressive, fantasy, pornographic…… let’s face it, the list is as open ended as cyberspace. Dangers lurk everywhere, but how do you control the internet? Well may we ask: ‘how many hairs on a dog’s head’, or ‘how long is a piece of string’? Enda Walsh (yes Enda, not Edna, this is not a typo) has written a very witty, poignant and topical play that deals with cyber-bullying issues and the general view that anything can happen in cyberworld (look at the stats; this is happening in real-time).

ston (Eva), Savannah Mitchell (Emily), Henry Gooley (Jim), and Akasha Ahrens (Laura) lead us through their character’s ‘journeys’ until we are totally absorbed. Respite is then given by way of film: cleverly interwoven into the mainstream of the play, and very Mullumbimby! With John Campbell, Julie Mottershead, Amy Hoogenboom and Terry Bleakley working together and all doing their best – this film is a hoot; and what a surprise to change brain-gear in midstream. Depression; sexuality; religion; peckingorder; power through words; the need to talk to someone, anyone; loneliness and being shunned, even in a chatroom (‘I’ll go to another room if you want…..’); manipulation; emotional interplay and even suicide are issues that are dealt with on a daily basis in so many chatrooms by so many estranged people. This cleverly written, cleverly directed and convincingly portrayed play is a ‘must see’ and to think such quality theatre is right here in our own backyard. Bravo!

Housing supply being reformed, says Minister The National Housing Supply Council confirmed that housing supply is the real problem when it released its 2010 State of Supply report a few weeks ago. The Council found that underlying demand for housing began to exceed housing starts in around 2000 and has continued every year since; the cumulative impact of the gap between demand and supply means that Aus-

tralia is now 178,400 homes short of where we should be; [and] this impacts on affordability right across the market, with the greatest impact on low and moderate income renters. We all know that the global downturn made conditions in the housing market worse and saw Australia heading for an unacceptably low number of housing starts. The government responded initially with the First Home Owners Boost and then with a new investment in new social housing construction at a rate not seen since the Second World War. Our approach was to support jobs and keep housing activity higher than otherwise would have been the case. Australian Bureau of Statistics data covering the year to March showed that dwelling approvals rose by over 50 per cent compared to the same period a year earlier. We know that the First Home Owners Boost saw an immediate increase in traffic through display villages and new developments. Many more established households made a decision to upgrade while interest rates were at record lows and there was a strong market for their existing home. More than 2,000 individual social housing projects across the country have given local builders an alternative business line, while the economy recovers. The social housing program is delivering great value for money. We budgeted $300,000 per unit and achieved a unit cost of approximately $270,000, allowing us to build more houses. Crucially, the construction program supported at least 15,000 jobs through the global recession. Currently more than 14,200 homes are being built – with over 1,400 now complete. The Stimulus Plan is also having another important effect – it is unlocking new housing supply. In total the States and Territories estimate that 3,000 extra private homes are being built on top of the 19,300 being delivered through the Stimulus Plan.

Tanya Plibersek: Federal Housing Minister

This is because developments that stalled due to finance drying up have been able to proceed because State and Territory governments guaranteed the purchase of a set number of homes within those developments. Planning systems an impediment The Henry Review recently found that one of the major impediments to increasing housing supply lay in the planning and zoning systems used to to bring new homes to market. The National Housing Supply Council found that it can take up to 15 years to convert land to new homes and this was equally true of greenfield developments and of infill. Land supply and the efficiency of the development pipeline are complex policy areas where State, Territory and local governments hold many of the levers. Nevertheless, we believe that the Australian government can play a role. Right now we are using our $512 million in a Housing Affordability Fund to support local projects that will increase housing supply and deliver better affordability outcomes.The Housing Affordability Fund is designed to promote reform and reduce planning and infrastructure costs in new housing developments. So far the government has announced more than $210 million in funding for 56 projects across the country. Some projects are funding

immediate infrastructure needs, like sewerage, roads and community facilities, while others are buying reform that will have a long-term impact on housing supply and affordability. Development reform At the same time the Australian government has made housing supply and planning and development reform priorities at the national level. Planning processes, along with infrastructure charges, are among the issues earmarked for reform by COAG’s housing supply and affordability working party. COAG is examining the housing supply pipeline including land aggregation, zoning and consistency of principles for housing development and building regulations. This is long term work but if we can bring together into one strategy investments in infrastructure, land release and a shared vision with the community about the shape of cities, then we are going straight to the heart of some of the issues that have produced the housing supply gap. Planning is one issue, the availability

of investment is another. To build more houses not only do we need more investment, we need it in those parts of the housing market where the shortage is most acute. That is where the National Rental Affordability Scheme comes in. The Scheme puts an incentive on the table to encourage the housing industry to invest in affordable rental homes. The government has committed more than $1 billion to the Scheme over the next four years to stimulate the supply of up to 50,000 new properties. Two years after it started… the National Rental Affordability Scheme is delivering on its goal of stimulating private investment in housing. In the future, my hope is that the National Rental Affordability Scheme will be firmly established as a feature of Australia’s housing landscape. Coupled with our efforts to reform planning and development rules through COAG, this will go a long way to generating the supply we need to better meet the housing demands of a growing nation into the future.

Rare elevated position at an affordable price

Going Nuts? ‘Lifestyle’ And Income

Investment wise this home makes great sense. It is still in its original state, so renovating an oldie can bring in substantial capital gains, especially if it is situated in an elevated position in a street that has appeal and surrounded by high priced homes. Being close to town and beaches is another factor to be aware of when purchasing in Byron, since this is the main purpose why people move there. A good size block of land, 797m², level and mostly useable is another great advantage for the home renovator.You are only limited by your imagination when it comes to expanding up or out. ( STCA ). A sturdy but simple three bedroom, one bathroom brick and tile home with a gorgeous sun drenched yard. Set high in the street to take advantage of the cooling summer breezes and warming winter sun, just a short ten minute walk to Tallow Beach or to the main township of Byron Bay. A forced sale due to changing family circumstances brings this home to the market. Recently reduced, all serious offers will be considered. Agents interest declared. Price: $720,000 Agent: Red Rose Realty 6680 9505 or 0427 016 451

27 acres on the rich red soil plateau offers lifestyle & income in coastal Byron Shire. Located less than 15 mins drive to Bangalow and just 20 mins to Byron and Lismore, the income is derived from 2100 macadamia nut trees with agronomists projected production for 2010 at 35 ton. Nett income of $79,500 after operating costs is expected in 2010. The cottage comprises 3 bedrooms with renovated kitchen and bathroom, fresh paint throughout and sprawling under-roof living/ entertaining. The cottage enjoys privacy, elevation and breezes. An elaborate self-contained and spotless lunch-room, housed in an outbuilding, has a rental history. An attractive Balinese bure on a picturesque pond in stony creek creates a party atmosphere for afternoon barbeques. A full analysis of property improvements, including irrigation licence and pump, two machinery sheds and all equipment included in the price, is available on request following inspection. A full management package for the farm is available for absentee owners. Asking price is very reasonable, at $1,080,000 for everything.

An all-girl contact sport that originated in the USA, it is based on two teams skating around a flat track and points are scored as players lap members of the opposing team. About 30 local women form the Bay Rollers who plan to compete in a Tweed competition under the sponsorship of Smokin’ Hot lingerie. Training happens each Sunday afternoon at the Brunswick Memorial Hall. If you would like to find out more about this exciting sport, email bettyrage77@gmail. com.There is also a website, bayrollers.yolasite.com, and the Facebook page has 170 fans and is growing.
