Triumphant revival for Classic Victoria Cosford

And what a triumphant revival it was! After a hiatus of seven years, the Byron Arts Classic – formerly the Easter Arts Classic – has returned to the Byron Community and Cultural Centre, and celebrated its opening night there along with hundreds of people. This community event, originally established in 1982 as a showcase for the region’s artists, attracted 340 entries, all of which had been hung throughout the Centre. Seating had been removed from the main auditorium to create a beautifully presented gallery on two levels of paintings, sculptures, glassworks and photography. In the centre of the ground floor a harpist plucked away sublimely as increasing numbers of people drifted from one artwork to the next. Upstairs, other rooms housed more paintings and a classical guitarist. Organiser Samaya Zakay told The Echo that ‘it’s been absolutely fantastic: there’s professional, emerging and hobby artists who have all put entries in and it all works – they all look fantastic together. It’s a really impressive effort and array, and all the works are amazing!’ In fact the superb curating helped, handled by Samaya herself, felloworganiser Helene Sheehan and Armidale gallery owner Matt Pilkington. General Manager of the Community Centre Paul Spooner said that ‘this is a wonderful collaboration between the artistic community and the Community Centre, supported by volunteers... it’s really great that the Centre is able to facilitate this – let’s see more of them!’ He went on to say that ‘it’s what the Arts Classic is all about: an opportunity for the community to celebrate its creative nature. I’m really blown away by the quality of the work – anyone who walks in here, if they’re not moved they’re dead!’ Sure enough the standard was mostly high. Established artists

Banana waste peeves growers Following news reports of Woolworths rejecting less than perfect bananas, NSW growers say their product is overlooked or severely underpriced due to its size or appearance. Northern NSW grower and board member of the Australian Banana Growers’ Council, Peter Molenaar of Mullumbimby, says NSW growers are constantly battling to get recognition for their fruit which is usually smaller than that from far north Queensland, or doesn’t meet major supermarkets’ rigid specifications. ‘We believe the smaller fruit is in fact more popular with many families as it is better suited to children,’ Mr Molenaar said. ‘As well, many consider that NSW bananas are sweeter as they take longer to grow in subtropical conditions.

such as Katka Adams, Anne Leon, Leigh Arnold, Jan Rae and Hele Ellis shared wall-space with lesser known or novice artists in a visual feast filled with pleasures and surprises. By 6.30pm the queue to get in was stretching back to the street, past the ballooons floating at the entrance to the building. By the time MC Mandy Nolan took to the podium the Centre was packed tightly, rendering movement difficult. Mandy mentioned that it had been ‘exactly ten years since I hosted the Easter Arts Classic in this same location.’ Unfortunately much of her inimitably funny speech was hard to hear due to a faulty microphone, a situation rectified by the time organiser Jan Dawkins took over. Jan spoke about the very great fortune in having ‘three

very experienced judges’ – namely Peter Powditch, Jill Eddington and Melitta Firth (the latter absent on the night.) All the various sponsors were thanked and more speeches made. Eventually the results were announced, as follows: 1st Prize – Painting: Rose McKinley with ‘Swimmer’ 2nd Prize – Painting: Jan Rae with ‘Little Wategos II’ 1st Prize – Photography: Dean Bailey with ‘One of the Girls’ 2nd Prize – Photography: Ian Wilson with ‘Tea Tree Gold’ 1st Prize – Works on Paper: Katka Adams with ‘Do Not Put Each Foot On A Different Boat’ 2nd Prize – Works on Paper: Oksana Waterfall with ‘Body Snap 1’ 1st Prize – Sculpture: Christine

Willcocks with ‘Aqualung’ 2nd Prize – Sculpture: Mirra-Winni Gaze with ‘An Angel of the Lord & a Basket Full of Hope’ Youth Encouragement: Ella Ryan with ‘Eve’ Incentive: Jay Pearse with ‘Dam at Sunset’ Acqusitive: Christine Willcocks with ‘Aqualung’ Organiser and committee member Tess Cullen told The Echo afterwards that ‘I’m absolutely and completely happy with the way it went. ‘The theatre full of people was thriving and alive from front to back – it was just beautiful in its energy with all that art. It was overwhelmingly successful!’ Results of the People’s Choice Award will appear in the next issue of The Echo.

‘We struggle to get a decent wholesale price which our fruit deserves and major supermarkets often dismiss it entirely. Perfectly good fruit from subtropical growers is dumped sometimes when reasonable prices cannot be achieved. ‘We believe that it is time that consumers had greater choice – let them have the choice of smaller fruit or those with blemishes at a different price point. ‘Growers in Carnarvon, WA, have shown it can be done and have successfully marketed smaller “lunchbox” bananas and blemished bananas as “smoothie” bananas. We need to work more closely with retailers to make these kinds of initiatives happen in the east coast markets.’ The grower’s council says that in NSW there is less wastage compared with far northern Queensland as markets and smaller retailers are outlets for other than ‘perfect’ bananas. Bananas are grown in two major areas in NSW – from Stuarts Point to Woolgoolga and from Ballina up to the Queensland border.

‘It’s chockers’, Raym Richards announces to The Echo at the entrance of Bangalow’s A&I Hall, home of his biannual Starlight Wellbeing Expo. Byron business owners might be moaning about a 40% drop in custom in their town this summer but it was clearly not the case here. ‘It’s being a very busy first morning’, he continues, ‘and it feels busier than previous years.’ Sure enough, the hall is a positive bustle of activity, albeit of a subdued and gentle nature. Most practitioners have customers, or merely curious visitors – stretched out on massage tables, sitting before purple-clothed tables topped with tarot cards, being quantumly healed or angelically read or having their energy fields photographed. This is a four-day festival which demonstrates and celebrates alternative and new age healing in its many manifestations. Raym ensures that there is a special guest speaker every day. ‘The healathon’, he says, ‘is as popular as ever, with people having profound healings.’ Intuitive numerology, sacred art, holographic kinetics and Indian head massage are offered; there is Aura Balance ($10 for 10 minutes) and even celebrity psychic healer Dianna Julia, murmuring something soothing into the ear of a prone body. Over at the Holistic Pulsing corner, Michell and Rose greet me warmly then settle me on to a bed. I have no idea what to expect of an experience which begins with a gentle rhythmic rocking, Rose’s capable hands placed at my hips. The rocking continues for a long time as she works her way

down my legs, to my feet, up my arms and my shoulders and hands and head, the rocking at times settling into subtle pulse movements as Rose shimmies in and out of my vision. In fact, ‘it’s like dancing’, she tells me at one point. She explains, as I turn into butter beneath her hands, that holistic pulsing is a relaxant for the central nervous system that relies on a rhythmic rocking which is close to the foetal heartbeat, sending ripples through the entire body. Similar to a regular massage actually, except here I am fully clothed, eyes fixed to the cream embossed ceiling of the old hall, kept cool from the day’s humidity by a small fan, wanting the gentle rocking to go on forever. When it is over and I gather myself together I take my liquid limbs, upon Raym’s recommendation, off to the Sacred Skulls workshop. On the verandah of the building which contains it are endless pairs of sandals, thongs and shoes; I obligingly remove my own and hover at the door-

way. Inside, about 100 people arranged on chairs are clutching small crystal skulls, their eyes closed. This is the first time that medium Dee Hearne has appeared at the Expo. UK-born, she has been channelling sound from the Crystal Sound Consciousness for over 15 years, incorporating chanting, meditation and singing bowls into her sessions. She instructs the room of mostly women to ask their skulls if there is anything they need help with, and then begins striking and stroking an assortment of bowls with an instrument resembling a pestle. Eerie, other-worldy sounds and vibrations emanate as she tells everyone that ‘we’re now going to bring more of our

skull consciousness into the room and into your skulls.’ Some sway, others sniff, and a man in the front row begins a tremble which threatens to erupt into some sort of fit, his face twitching; others cough cathartically. A trance has descended upon the rows of chairs as Dee starts chanting, one sustained note which is taken up by the room in surprisingly sweet harmony. I slide away before I become completely mesmerised, back into the main hall where Open Table caterers are dispensing vegetable frittatas and organic macrobiotic tofu pockets and cute cardboard boxes of Mung Dhal. New arrivals continue to filter in as I make my way back out into the mugginess of the real world.

Northern region road toll increases An RTA spokesperson said there had been a disappointing increase in the yearly road toll across Northern NSW. ‘It is extremely tragic to know that 69 people lost their lives on Northern NSW roads last year – that’s 69 too many.’ The spokesperson said the provisional end of year 2009 road toll of 69 in the Northern region was five deaths higher than 2008. The provisional 2009 end of year road toll for NSW of 460 was a 23 per cent increase on the previous year which had been a record low 374. The 2008 road toll was the lowest since World War II but last year numbers climbed again. ‘It is no clichĂŠ to say every death on NSW roads is

a tragedy for the friends and family of those involved,’ the spokesperson said. Speed remains a major factor in fatalities throughout NSW and had increased by 40 per cent in 2009. ‘Last year 46 per cent of fatalities involved speed – 213 people died in speed related crashes in 2009, compared with 152 in 2008, a 40% increase. ‘People are becoming com-

placent and thinking that driving even five or ten kilometres above the speed limit is acceptable or that a crash won’t happen to them. ‘Unfortunately nothing could be further from the truth and that is reflected in the fact that people are killed at a rate of more than one a day. ‘While speed remains the highest killer on the roads, fatigue is also an issue. In 2009, 18 per cent of the fatalities involved fatigue, compared to 16

per cent of fatalities in 2008. ‘Since 1994 the number of vehicles on NSW roads has increased 15 fold, the number of licensed motorists has increased 11 fold and the NSW population has doubled. ‘Sadly, the key issues on NSW roads remain speeding, driving while fatigued and drink-driving. Drivers are urged to stick to the speed limit and drive to road conditions, not to drink and drive and to plan ahead for trips, including rest breaks.’

Housie a magnet for the young Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Many people would stroll into the Housie tent at Brunswick Heads and expecting to see the nana brigade playing bingo. One would not usually expect to see a large cross-section of the area’s youth with heads down, but that is exactly the case at this tractional summertime event. Not only do the younguns descend on the tent in droves, but they have youthful eyesight, ‘all the better to see you with’, and can manage to play two, three and four games all at once and often come up winners. Nakea Pyne from Ocean Shores is one of the teens who is carrying on the local tradition. ‘My earliest memory of playing housie is of how serious some people take it,’ says Nakea. ‘I look forward to this time of year. I go at least once a week over summer, usually with a bunch of friends or sometimes I take my little cousins.’ Nakea says that it is the fun, social aspect of Housie that is attractive to youth. ‘There is not much for our age group to do around this area, so I think it’s a bit of a social thing. It’s just a bit of fun especially when you are waiting for that one last

number to get called out.’ Housie is one of the major fundraisers for the Brunswick Valley and District Rescue Squad, and association member and housie tent organiser

Sue Biggar is pleased with this year’s tent event. ‘The numbers have been down a little on the last two years, but there has been a really nice atmosphere,’ says Sue.

‘We do seem to have a lot more young people this time around with about 70% of the players being teenagers and the rest families. It’s been lovely, everyone has been well behaved and even though it takes a lot of manpower for the VRA to run the tent, it has really been worth it.’ Sue says it is through the generosity of the ARL Carnival Committee that the event is possible as they pay for things like insurance and the DA. This enables the rescue squad to receive a greater amount of funds while at the same time returning 60% of the money to the players. ‘This is a wonderful opportunity for us. Last year we put funds raised toward a rescue vehicle and this year we hope to buy a TV, DVD, a screen, projector and other electrical equipment for training the road crew.’ Nakea and her mates have until Sunday night to enjoy the entertainment, happy in the knowledge that their money is going to a good cause. ‘I don’t spend a lot,’ says Nakea. ‘Usually only one or two rounds and very rarely do I get all the numbers, though I did win the 50 cent jackpot the other night and got $65!’

Tourism website draws good numbers According to its promoters, the new Rivers of Life website promoting holidays in the Northern Rivers has drawn ‘an extraordinary number’ of visits since it went live in October. ‘Already there have been more than 22,000 visits which is twice as many as comparable tourism sites listed by Google, so this is a great start to our campaign,’ says CEO of Northern Rivers Tourism, Russell Mills. The visits have been steadily increasing with an average 33 a day when it first went live,

220 a day in November, 410 in December and 414 in the first week of January. ‘The analytics reports show that our efforts to drive traffic through targeted television advertising and search engine optimisation are working,’ said Mr Mills. The campaign will be extended through additional TV advertising, search engine marketing and a planned press trip during late January and February. The objective is to extend the holiday season beyond the traditional Christmas/New

Year break. ‘The statistics are showing that the “Hot Deals” and accommodation pages of the website are most popular, so we are confident that this will translate to bookings,’ said Mr Mills. ‘Later in February we will consult with operators to measure just how successful the campaign has been through increased bookings.’ The Rivers of Life cooperative marketing campaign is a major initiative of Northern Rivers Tourism to support the industry.

A reader sent us this picture of traffic backed up along Ewingsdale Road into Byron Bay.

As Byron Bay copes with yet another summer of traffic gridlock, Byron Shire Council has been busy collecting data on said traffic. In a press release last week, Council recapped what has been happening in the bypass saga of late: ‘Last November (2009), Council received a report regarding the status of the Byron Bay bypass Development Application and resolved to give in principle support to the option known as the “mini bypass”. ‘During 2009 Council completed the Main Road (MR) 545 Strategic Road Study which looked at the road corridor of Ewingsdale Road, Shirley Street, through Byron Bay town centre and south to the shire boundary via Bangalow and Broken Head Roads. The study identified a series of road network upgrades and “trigger points”, such as traffic volumes and development, to assist in planning such upgrades. That study was reported to Council in April 2009 which subsequently resolved to “note the report” and write to the Minister of Transport advising the study identified the need

for a second rail crossing within the town centre. ‘The same Council resolution also called for further traffic assessment to be undertaken so as to allow a review and update of the MR545 recommendation and data which was collected during June 2008. ‘In the leadup to undertaking such further assessment, Council also received two further reports in November and December 2009. The November 2009 report garnered “in principle support” from Council for the option known as the “mini bypass” and progressing a design for a second rail crossing at its location for purposes of State Rail Authority (RIC) undertaking an assessment. ‘The December 2009 report resulted in support of further traffic data collection over the 2009/10 summer (peak) period to allow further reporting and verification of the MR545 (and other former) study findings plus several Council resolutions subsequent to the original MR545 study resolution. ‘As with the MR545 data collection undertaken in June 2008 (a low season) the further data collection (in high, peak season)

included, at various locations, manual recording of vehicle turning movements at select intersections and automated recording of licence plates (via video, to assist with origin-destination and travel time analysis) along with traffic speeds and volumes (via tube counters).’ Acting Director of Asset Management Services Anthony Nash said the data would be a useful tool for Council. The report will include an analysis of the demands and benefits of potential bypass options, such as, but not limited to, those known as the full and mini bypass, and any associated works, such as intersection upgrades. ‘Such data will help understand the costs and benefits of any proposal being considered and assist with progressing an optimal option for Byron Bay traffic,’ Mr Nash said. The results of the data collection will be reported to Council as soon as possible. The report will include an analysis of the demands and benefits of potential bypass options, such as, but not limited to, those known as the full and mini bypass, and any associated works, such as intersection upgrades.

According to a South Golden Beach hall committee member, ‘It appears that breaking in, stealing and damaging much needed community facilities has become an entertaining pastime for certain individuals in SGB. ‘The theft of the fire extinguisher was not such a great idea given the spate of recent fires just down the road. How about showing some respect for the few community assets

Byron Council looks at forced redundancies Byron Shire Council is in the process of an organisation restructure which will be implemented early next month. On October 8, 2009, Council resolved in a confidential session to authorise general manager Graeme Faulkner to reallocate resources and effect necessary redundancies to achieve the organisation restructure. Council conducted a voluntary redundancy program between October and December 2009 and received 14 applications. Mr Faulkner said unfortu-

nately all but three of the positions were identified as being necessary to Council’s operational needs. ‘Three offers of voluntary redundancy were made, two of which have been accepted with one outstanding,’ he said. ‘The voluntary redundancy program has now been concluded with, unfortunately, insufficient results to completely implement the restructure.’ Mr Faulkner said management hoped to achieve the necessary outcome through natural attrition and voluntary redundancies, however this did

not occur and as a result the regrettable decision has been made to move on to a program of forced redundancies. ‘Forced redundancies may result in termination of employment of some affected staff members,’ Mr Faulkner said. ‘However, to the greatest extent possible, Council will seek to redeploy affected staff within the organisation.’ Council is currently considering five positions for a forced redundancy, which represents less than 3% of Council’s total workforce. The positions currently be-

ing considered for forced redundancy are spread generally between manager and technical officer positions, as well as equally between the General Manager’s Division, Planning Development and Environment Services, and Corporate and Community Services.

NSW govt invests in climate research The NSW government will invest $750,000 into research to look at changing weather patterns along the east coast and how they may affect the population and infrastructure along the NSW and South-East Queensland coastline. NSW Minister for Climate Change and the Environment Frank Sartor said the NSW

government would invest the money over the next three years and would bring together top researchers from the State’s research institutions, Sydney Institute of Marine Sciences, Bureau of Meteorology, CSIRO and the NSW Government, as part of the Eastern Seaboard Climate Change Initiative. ‘The east coast of Australia

is home to almost nine million Australians and billions of dollars of public and private infrastructure and we need to be clear on the threats climate change could pose to this region,’ Mr Sartor said. Mr Sartor said all tiers of government are working in partnership on important climate change initiatives.

A Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter crewman has been awarded the National Medal for his many years of devoted service to the northern NSW community. Michael Kerry began volunteering as a rescue crewman at just 18 years of age after being heavily involved in surf lifesaving. The now 42 year old became a fulltime member of staff in 1992 and is now Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter’s longest-serving employee. ‘When I first started as a volunteer the service only had one fulltime pilot and one part-time pilot; all the crewmen were volunteers,’ Mr Kerry said. ‘I was a member of the surf club at Ballina, like most of the guys, and I hung around the helicopter base like a bad smell

until I was old enough to help out. ‘The reason that I’ve stayed so long is because of the enjoyment of the job and the great team environment; I still look forward to coming to work each week and I certainly wasn’t expecting to receive this medal.’ Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter general manager Kris Beavis said Mr Kerry’s dedication to his job was typical of the type of people who came to work for the rescue helicopter. ‘Mick’s not just a nice guy, he’s also highly dedicated to what he does,’ Mr Beavis said. ‘I want to congratulate Mick on receiving the National Medal and say that I hope he stays with us another 25 years.’

Chai Tent at the End of the Universe won first prize at the 09/10 Woodford Folk Festival’s Spirit of Woodford 2009 Video Awards. Directed by Darmin Cameron (pictured holding the award) and edited by David Tindale, the film tells the story of the musicians, patrons and workers affection or otherwise for the Chai Tent over its 21 year history at the Woodford Folk Festival. Darmin shot the footage and interviews at the Chai Tent’s birthday celebrations last year and brought the footage back to Lismore where editor David Tindale completed the production. Chai Tent at the End of the Universe is a cute ‘warm and fuzzy’ little insight into the spirit of the Chai Tent. It’s about ‘good people doing good things’ said Darmin, ‘and by the looks of it, having fun at the same time.’ The Spirit judges were generous in their praise: ‘It has many fascinating elements, it is clear in its purpose, well conceived, written and directed. Even if you have never been to Wood-

ford, it captures the important role the Chai Tent plays in the life of the festival and the dedication of the people who make it a reality. It is also complemented by a great deal of humour and a lightness of touch. Had warmth and humour and an enjoyable story.’ Chai Tent has a large cast, and many punters appear. You can see a few local and not so local performers putting their spin on the ‘Legend of the Chai Tent’. There are comedians Glover and Sorrenson, Piano Man Harry Freeman, Mr Percival, Martin Pearson and Lindsay Pollack, Jambezi and the Chai Tent Crew. ‘The Chai Tent Woodford is where they sell steaming hot Chai, Chai to rival the best Chai from the best Chai Wallah on the streets of Bombay, home of Chai,’ says Darmin. ‘When too much Chai is barely enough, there is only one place to be – “Meet you at the Chai Tent”.’ A north coast photographer called Jeff Dawson took out the Spirit of Woodford Photography Award.

First home buyers’ $1bn Last week Premier Kristina Keneally and acting treasurer John Hatzistergos releaseda report card on the 2009 calendar year for first home buyer grants in NSW. First home buyers in NSW received more than $1 billion in grants in 2009. It was the first year that grants have surpassed the $1 billion mark – which generated

more than $26 billion worth of property being purchased in NSW. Western Sydney was the most popular region for NSW first home buyers, accounting for seven of the top 10 suburbs where grants were received. ‘This is a massive level of support for NSW families and the State’s housing sector,’ Ms Keneally said.

Environment report card shows problems: MP

On the eve of the holiday period the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water quietly published its environmental report card for the last three years, the 2009 State of the Environment Report. ‘I am very surprised that this extremely important document, which outlines our progress on restoring and enhancing our natural environment over the last three years, was unaccompanied by any departmental or ministerial release,’ says Greens MP Ian Cohen. ‘The Department and the Minister appear to be suggesting that we are “holding the line� on the health of our natural environment in the face of population growth. I would suggest that the key report indictors show some concerning trends in our environment and that we are simply not facing up to the challenges of climate change. ‘The report shows the NSW government is not reducing greenhouse gas emissions, is not on target with recycling rates commitments, has not complied with national air emission standards, is not effectively addressing biodiversity loss and is struggling with declining wetland health.’ Some of the key points drawn from the SOE Report 2009 included: Greenhouse Gases: In 1990, NSW emitted 160 Mt CO2-e (carbon dioxide equivalent/ Greenhouse Gas). In 2007,

The environment over Mullum still looks good. Photo Ziggi Browning.

NSW emitted 163 Mt CO2-e. The Report makes the argument that population growth and economic development are behind the stagnation in reducing emission levels, yet fails to acknowledge technological advances that should aid emission reduction. To achieve the NSW State Government target of 2000 level GHG emissions levels by 2025 (152 Mt CO2-e) NSW needs to reduce emissions by 16.3% from current levels (or 666,666 tonnes of CO2-e per year until 2025), which considering the current trends, appears unlikely. Greenhouse gas emissions from stationary energy have increased by 33% between 1990 and 2007 (60 Mt to 79Mt) even though annual population growth has not exceeded 1.2% over the last 20 years. Climate Change: The annual average temperature rise in NSW was around 0.1°C per decade during 1950–80. From 1990 onwards it has been about 0.5°C per decade, a five-fold increase. Increases in temperature will have significant impacts on human health, particularly in relation to our aged citizens. Recycling and Waste Management: The 2006â „07 municipal recycling rate for New South Wales was 38%, representing a 5% increase in municipal recycling over a two year period. At this rate NSW

is not on track to achieve 2014 target of 66% recycling. For the Sydney region, 4.52 million tonnes of potentially recyclable waste went to landfill. Half of this waste going to landfill comes from the industrial and commercial stream, in particular food waste and products. Air Pollution: Ozone and Particles (PM10) concentrations appear to be on an upward trend with increasing exceedence of the National Environment Protection Measure for Ambient Air Quality Standards. Particles (PM2.5 and PM10) in non-urban areas have increased significantly (16% and 19% respectively). Nitrogen oxide emissions from industry in Sydney are up 49%. National Parks and Conservation: The report boasts that since 2006 the national reserve system has increased by 3.5% or grown by 236,346 ha. However this pales in comparison to the contribution of former Premier Carr’s contribution (58% increase) and the contribution of the Greiner Government that increased the national reserve system by 7.2%. Of note is that the Riverina Bioregion (where the most significant River Reg Gums Forests are) only has 1.8% of the total region represented in reserves. Cultural Heritage: While the area of lands with aboriginal cultural heritage items has

increased to 2.3 million hectares, approaches to licensing destruction and damage of aboriginal places and areas is leaving cultural heritage without adequate protection. Soil Conservation and Land Degradation: While soil erosion levels are holding, organic carbon and soil structure are deteriorating at a time when there is increasing need for sustainable land management to underwrite food security. Threatened Species: Of the 25% of the native terrestrial species monitored in NSW for sustainability, 64% of all fauna species that are assessable and 65% of birds have a moderate or greater risk of extinction.

but Japan remains a huge and massively important customer. An end to trade would effectively kill off the Australian economy almost overnight. So forget about that one. Diplomacy has always been the course preferred by government, but it has not achieved much so far, and in any case has been compromised by what the Japanese see as Australia’s covert sup-

tant to implement it; and with good reason. Any legal action by Australia would have to be based on one of two grounds. The first is that the Japanese are trespassing in Australian waters against Australian law, a proposition which has already been upheld in the Australian Federal Court. This relies on the validity of Australia’s claim to a large slice of Antarctic Ter-

There is no doubt that Sea Shepherd has been effective in harassing the whalers and limiting their catch; the violent and potentially homicidal response makes that clear enough. But it has only strengthened the Tokyo government’s resolve to press on; again, national pride is involved. So if war is not an option, economic sanctions would be counterproductive and diplomacy has proved ineffective, what is left? Only what the Rudd government obviously regards as the weapon of last resort, the legal action which was so fiercely promised two and a half years ago. Environment Minister Peter Garrett insists that it is still a serious and genuine threat if nothing comes of the latest round of talks through the International Whaling Commission, but he is clearly reluc-

ritory and on the surrounding seas up to the 200 mile limit. Japan does not recognise this claim; well, Japan wouldn’t, would it? But nor does almost anyone else. The modern international consensus is that Antarctica should belong to the world at large and not be exploited by individual nations, and the same applies to the waters around it. Australia’s claim to sovereignty is therefore seen as old fashioned nationalism, even neo-colonialism. And of course, it is unenforceable; there is no way that Australia could ever defend or even police the area. There is certainly a view held by many, though not all, countries that Antarctic waters should be a sanctuary, especially for endangered species of whale, but once again no one is going to go to war to protect them. It is hard to see an international court accepting that Australia has the

legal right to throw the Japanese out. But aren’t the Japanese there under false pretences, the absurd fiction that their whaling is for the purposes of scientific research? Sure they are; everyone knows it, and in recent times even Tokyo has gone very close to admitting it. The Environment Minister in the new government, Sakihito Ozawa, in a recent justification for the annual hunt, spoke not of research but of Japan’s right to eat whale meat. And the IWC has a moratorium on all forms of commercial whaling; so surely Japan is in breach of it? Yes, beyond any reasonable doubt; but prove it. In 2008 Australia sent the Oceanic Viking to collect evidence of Japanese activities for its potential court case, and the Viking duly returned with videos of Japanese killing whales. But this was never in dispute. What the videos don’t and can’t show is the Japanese not doing scientific research on the remains. And even if they somehow managed to prove this negative, it is not clear that it would be a matter for the International Court of Justice: the moratorium is simply an agreement between the members of the IWC. Japan could easily claim that it is not a legally enforceable contract, and that therefore Japan is not bound by it. As always, litigation would be a morass, and the government is sensible to steer clear of it for as long as possible. But time is running out; if there is no progress in the next few months, Rudd will have to take the risk, if only to maintain his own political credibility. It may not help the whales much, but they are not the only creatures endangered in the current brawl.

one seems to know exactly how far people must move in order to comply with police direction. Impromptu parties, being drunk, getting caught with recreational drugs or a spray can – it doesn’t take much for a young person to run up an array of overblown charges that rarely fit the ‘crime’. We can blame the shock jocks for inflaming public hysteria and fuelling and refuelling the law and order debate, encouraging a ‘zero tolerance’ mentality. Reactive unprincipled parliaments continue to outlaw everything, introducing draconian penalties for a whole range of activities enjoyed by young people. The police have an unenviable, high risk job, but it is now almost impossible for a young person living in Byron Shire to make the transition into adulthood without collecting a criminal record along the way.

Plenty of parents living in north coast party towns sympathise with Georgia Enter and her family and despair at the heavy-handedness of the police when dealing with typical adolescent behaviour. As Mick Malloy points out, ‘simply shut up and do as you are told’ is the only way to respond to police, but it’s a tough lesson for feisty, independent young people. Most naively believe they have rights and laws to protect their freedom of expression and movement. Like Georgia, many teenagers’ first experience of the law is tough, arbitrary and expensive.

I don’t think David’s article was trying to hide this element as a contributing factor towards the unfortunate events that developed. As much as we may wish our young people to be perfect citizens at all times adolescence is a time of accelerated development in which the exploration of new environments and the testing of boundaries is part of the growing process. Some of it is done safely, some of it is not, some opens new roads of development, and some is a realisation of moving in the wrong direction. While adult communities make all kinds of efforts to create safe opportunities for boundary testing and growth, young people also want to do it on their own with their peers. Perhaps the incident of concern was one that could have been avoided with hindsight in mind. The important point of the

article that should not be missed was how this situation was dealt with by the police and how others like it may be dealt with in the future. What the letters in last week’s paper failed to acknowledge was the courage of the young person involved to have her story told so that issues of inappropriate policing can be addressed. Most people will swallow their experiences of perceived abuse rather than going through the risk of public blame for their harrowing events. I would like to congratulate this young person for her efforts to raise this issue publicly and progressing action towards maintaining standards of appropriate policing conduct. Through her personal experiences, courage and support from the community, this young person may well become our next generation of human rights advocate, making sure the legal system is working for its constituents rather than against them.

Letters

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting… To the learned people who feel it necessary to fill pages of The Echo letters section with their detailed knowledge of Arctic sea ice melting, can I assure you that your discussion is about as interesting as watching umm... ice melting. Surely your no doubt collective genius could be put to greater use on pressing enviro matters closer to home. For example, our own little local fossil fuel burning gridlock disaster happening every day over summer on Shirley, Jonson and Lawson Streets in Byron. The question – how to create a workable alternative to the utter chaos without pissing anybody off and spending endless ratepayer funds on go nowhere studies, research and endless consultative committees? Now there’s a real challenge for you – carbon monoxide with your coffee, sirs?

■ My attempt last week to explain the melting ice thing was thwarted by The Echo leaving out one line of my letter. It should have read: an iceberg floating in the sea will displace its own weight of sea water. When it melts it will produce an equal weight of fresh water. Because fresh water is lighter than sea water, the volume of fresh water will be greater than the volume of sea water the iceberg had displaced, so it will raise the sea level slightly. I hope this makes it clearer. Andy McTavish last week cited a figure of 4cm sea level rise ‘if all the sea ice on the planet melted’. Unless my maths is wrong (possible) adding Antarctic sea ice to the less than 1mm I gave last week for the melting of the Arctic sea ice would only give about 2mm sea level rise. The other 38mm I preWayne Davis sume comes from not sea ice Suffolk Park but the floating ice shelves of

Antarctica. This is the land ice that has slid into the sea, so is partly resting on land below sea level and partly completely floating. It does raise sea level, mostly as it moves from being completely on land to being completely afloat, with a final 2.6% (according to Mr Baggio) increase when it melts. I presume it is this final 2.6% that makes up the 38mm referred to above. There is a different and quite valid, way of describing this process for the ice shelves, but it is too complicated to go into here – the end result is the same. But, as Andy says, let’s get back to the point, which seems to be Andy’s scepticism. Scepticism is fine (I was one myself more than 20 years ago) but to me that means making a serious attempt to understand the science, not making unsupported allegations of misrepresentation by scientists.

In his original letter (December 1) Andy quoted a Professor England as saying ‘the Arctic may be ice-free by the summer of 2030 and sea levels could reach the upper limit of two metres by the turn of the century’. This in itself is a perfectly reasonable statement and does not imply a causal relationship between these two effects of global warming. Not having heard or seen the whole interview, I don’t know what else Professor England may have said or implied, but I suspect the linkage of these two effects was in Andy’s sceptical mind. By his letter last week, Andy has Professor England saying the two metres sea level rise was ‘because of Arctic sea ice melt’. This is very different from what Andy quotes the Professor as saying in his earlier letter, and to me seems to be fabricating evidence to

friends have a picture in the paper. They use the TV guide and constantly are checking to see if their favourite shows are on TV. The ad in question is for the Krystal adult shop in Byron. This is not the first time I have thought the ad placed by this advertiser was inappropriate for a local family friendly newspaper. In the latest edition there is a picture of a blow-up doll and a man touching it! (Note: although Mandy does have some interesting comments my kids don’t read her column and she is great for a laugh!) I personally don’t have any issues with adult shops, just not being advertised in a family friendly paper and especially the TV section of the paper. I hope you will take my complaint on board and choose to ensure the advertisers’ pictures

Mullumbimby I cannot bear to read your letters section and see Richard Kidby still getting it wrong as usual. Woolworths is not a friendly local Australian company. It is a huge, American based, profit driven multinational that is striving to be the next Walmart, the biggest and most ghastly American retail giant which has destroyed towns and communities all over the country. In Queensland, Woolworths built a giant box at Maleny, over the protests of the locals, who organised and swore never to shop there. The company doesn’t care, they are so big they can afford to run at a loss ■

Gross and tacky I am writing to you today to complain about an ad in your paper.

You boys can do what you like in your own time but do we have to have it all over the tellie pages where the kids are bound to see it… and me too?

Letters continued from page 12

endorse this learned doctor’s views of the alcohol and crime problems that are common in Byron Bay, and I urge, plead if I must, for our Mayor to respond to this good doctor’s call for a community meeting on these very important antisocial issues. I have previously written to your paper and raised this matter of a ‘party town’ image that Byron has unfortunately but appropriately been tagged with, and the unfortunate results coming from such an image. It is a major problem that this community must address as the very fabric of this wonderful iconic town is be-

ing slowly destroyed, and our youth along with it. I find it extremely unfortunate that we hear nothing from Byron United on this matter. One would think that if this organisation does not become publicly involved in this very serious antisocial issue, then the ‘brand’ (Byron Bay) will ultimately be severely tarnished or worse still, destroyed completely. Surely someone in that organisation knows something about the importance of protecting your ‘brand’ name. And Byron Bay the iconic town is the ‘brand’ that all businesses look to for their survival. Lose that ‘brand’ and it is

inevitable that we will eventually see many empty shops in Byron Bay. Byron United, your continuing failure to publicly address this issue will see many of your membership eventually filing for bankruptcy. This past New Years Eve we saw a classic example of the alcohol problem and how ‘southern carpetbaggers’ are completely disinterested in this local community’s welfare, a community from which they draw large sums of money to improve their personal wealth. The example I personally witnessed was one while the police were doing an excellent job restricting the movement of alcohol

into the CBD area by stopping that movement at the rail crossing – at the same time however, when these young people then proceeded into the town centre, they were then able to purchase unrestricted amounts of alcohol from a hotel bottle shop near the beach until at least 10.30pm, where they would then proceed to the beach or parks and consume it. I stood in amazement and observed this example of blatant profiteering with scant regard for our community welfare. Just another situation where some are trying to do the right thing by the community while another group is thinking only of the $$$$s.

So please, Mayor Barham, this is a great opportunity for our community to come together as Dr Moss has asked for, and have a real impact on this community issue that is of such vital importance for our future, and the future of our youth. Bring us together, Mayor, so as a community we can stand up and fight for the values we want this community to stand for. For example, values like respect and responsibility! Joe Holt

Mid season report As the fortunes of Birmingham City Football Club are increas-

ingly the main subject of polite post prandial conversation in the Shire, and also a daily topic at my local hostelry, I thought it timely to apprise your readers of their mid season situation. Since being purchased by a wealthy Chinese ‘colourful identity’ in October, the team has not lost in 12 games! You will all be well aware that in the 125 year history of the club, they’ve won stuff-all. This then is a record and the Birmingham City FC Byron Bay Supporters Club members, now numbering five, including hangers-on and groupies, are struggling to cope with this success! The club manager, whose sideline expressions still range from the bemused to the quizzical, is apparently similarly at a loss. An end of season report will be posted when I expect BCFC to be in the more familiar position of battling to avoid relegation. Tony Parker

Retreating dunes Keine Nombre (Letters, Decmber 22, 2009) asks people to have a look at previously published pictures of Belongil Beach and, using abbreviated swear words to emphasise the point, assures us that the Byron sand dunes have not moved since 1883. For many years there was a photograph hanging on the wall in the Byron Bay Services Club, showing a car parked on Byron Beach with the occupants of the car holding their hands against the hull of the wrecked SS Wollongbar. The writer has watched over the last ten years as the sand dunes between the First Sun Caravan Park and Manfred Street, Belongil, have continually retreated and diminished in height. Ten years ago, from a kilometre off the coast of Cavvanbah Street, the buildings in Shirley Street were not visible because of the tall sand dune. But today more and more of the buildings in Shirley Street are now visible from a kilometre out in the ocean, because the sand dune has eroded and is now much lower and further back. It is only a matter of time until one can see the ocean from Shirley Street. One question is whether Council will soon sacrifice part of Border Street, Belongil, the same way that they have sacrificed the apparently unnamed street opposite the Belongil CafĂŠ, or whether they will attempt to protect it, the same way they recently protected Manfred Street, Belongil. It is fairly obvious that manmade climate change and the recent melting of the East Antarctic ice shelf is going to affect Byron Bay. Peter Olson

Time for the age of ageing well John Stevens

‘If I had only known that I was going to live this long I might have treated myself better’. That lament is on the fridge magnet belonging to my 85 year old parents. When they bought it 30 years ago it was bit of a joke. Since then, my father has literally had the resources equivalent to the GDP of the island nation of Nauru spent on his health. These days he talks to me from his hospital bed about how it is no longer a joke. He wishes he had not smoked and had exercised more because now he has clogged arteries in his legs and has not been able to walk without pain for the last 20 years or virtually at all for the last three. Every major organ has just about ceased to work because of his artery disease. He wishes he had eaten a better diet; more fibre, less fat and sugar as he has developed insulin dependent diabetes and has suffered with bowel cancer and is now fighting pancreatic cancer. He wishes he had taken the fridge’s advice. When he was 55 however he could not conceive that he would ever live to 85. Nor did we, as a community, have the knowledge and skills to help us age as well as we can now.

Help celebrate the 2010 International Year of Biodiversity by coming along to some of the National Parks Discovery activities running during the January school holidays. Northern Rivers Region NPWS Discovery Coordinator Brendan Taylor is encouraging everyone to have a look at the wide range of Discovery activities on offer and to try something new these holidays. ‘We’ll be paddling canoes on the beautiful Cudgen Lake and Jerusalem Creek; snorkelling at Julian Rocks; and checking out the strange critters lurking in the rockpools at Lennox Head,’ says Brendan.

‘We are also running a number of activities with local indigenous people including artefact making at Victoria Park and going for a walk with some of the Githabul people in the Toonumbar National Park. There’s also a cultural walk and traditional games on the beach for kids with Minjungbal local Athol Compton in the Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve.’ For more information about Discovery, visit www.environment.nsw.gov.au Fees apply for activities and bookings are essential.

Don’t take no for an answer. Find another practitioner if you are not getting what you need.

Active, creative, excited, just plain chilled-out – the north coast offers a range of treats for all tastes. In the hinterland you can get away from the sun’s glare and explore the mystery and biodiversity of the rainforest. Sit still and watch small birds fossick at your feet. If you’re a beach bunny, there’s kilometres of beautiful sand and crashing waves to enjoy. Body surf, read a book under an umbrella, snorkel out at Julian Rocks and see the rich marine life. In the beating heart of our lively towns, treat yourself to a coffee or check out the diversity of shopping. Stop on the footpath and listen to a saxophonist wailing out his heart. Find an art class and follow your own pencil line. Bend and stretch, reach for the stars in a yoga session. Even become the daring young holidaymaker on the flying trapeze – run away for a short while and join the circus! And remember – take care of the nature that makes this place special. Take care of yourself – drink plenty of water, protect yourself from the sun and, if you’re not a strong swimmer, realise some of those north coast waves are bigger than they look.

Circus Workshops & Flying Trapeze Sessions

Experience the ultimate makeup must haves!

Friday 22nd January

Clumping bamboo which is non-invasive in this new decade will provide even more of our everyday essentials.There has been a dramatic switch to its use as an alternative to other fibres and non-renewable timbers. By planting bamboo it’s possible to benefit from the multitude of uses that only this plant can provide within as little as four years. Large bamboos are also edible, provide fodder for cattle and brilliant wind/noise and pollution barriers. Poles are being harvested for an array of uses from structural beams, massage kits, martial arts, plus popular fences and screens. Please feel free to contact Kaye and ask about the most desirable bamboo for a screen, a hedge, a barrier or to plant as a building resource for the future !

Call 6684 8047 or visit www.byronbaybamboo.com.au for more information.

Our Napoleon Perdis Makeup Expert will create a look that’s right for you and reveal makeup secrets to enhance your natural beauty.

Alien life forms captured in the depths of inner space Story & photo Mary Gardner

The rolling sea is refreshing and cool. The dark storm blue of the clouds overhead are reflected on the surface of the water. We finally get through the breakers. Although we are not far from the shore, we are snorkelling in deep water. The high tide makes for easy going. But the visibility under water is very poor. My friend, a novice skin diver, is readjusting his face mask. ‘I’m not OK when I can’t see what’s out there,’ he says. I nod. I touch his shoulder. I remove the snorkel from my mouth. ‘Let’s swim along shoreline a little,’ I reply, pointing. ‘We won’t stay long.’ I wait until he gets underway. He now uses his legs and fins, swimming with his arms at his side. He seems to be breathing easily through his snorkel. Through my mask, I see my fingers at arm’s length come in and out of focus. I relax my vision and watch the interplay of colour, light and shadow. Moving in it, I am on alert: a participant as well as observer. All around us is a kind of confetti of green, brown and red. Close up, I see all sorts of

exquisite shapes. Some resemble pale cornflakes or green lettuce. Others are like small fans with bands of dark colours. There are maroon bristles, like small feather dusters. They slide all over my bare skin. I cup my hands together to slow some of them down so I can look more closely. These are all parts of some alien form of life. The surge of the swell underwater moves them away but I clutch a few of each colour. On shore, there is a drink bottle complete with lid littering the sand. I use it to collect some seawater and deposit my samples. Reality is what you make of it. Landlubbers only see me with pieces of seaweed in a rubbish bottle. Maybe another diver would see me with fragments of macro algae safe in an unbreakable container. But what I have taken from the depths of ‘inner space’ are at least four organisms from a group known as ‘protoctists’. They are not animals, plants, fungi or bacteria. ‘Algae’ is the polite umbrella term for all these very dissimilar creatures. They live complicated marine lives which no one fully understands. Their sexuality is out of this world. There are two Brown Algae.

The brown ‘fans’ are a species of Padina. The golden brown ‘bubble weed’, Colpomenia, are also called ‘cornflakes’ by local swimmers. The thin green film, only two cells thick, is a Green Algae, an Ulva species. I think the dark maroon, a Red Algae, is likely a Pterocladia species, but I could be wrong. They all have chloroplasts and make their own energy from sunlight, but the Reds create floridean starch and the Browns laminarin. The Greens, oddly enough, create the same starch as that of plants on land. But then they are considered to be the direct ancestors of plants. Many of the Algae also have another biochemical process

involving that substance of bones and seashells: calcium carbonate. The Brown Padina is an example. Its dark concentric bands are rough. They are filled with needles of aragonite, a form of calcium carbonate. Padina assembles this as they grow in warm shallow seas, rich in magnesium, more alkaline than acidic. When the Padinas and other aragonite assembling Algae die, their needles break down into sand. In the Bahamas, this accounts for sixty five percent or more of local deposits. The percentage here in Byron is unknown. Reproduction for all three Algae is very complicated. Each species within each group uses

two or three different stages, each sexual or asexual. Body sizes, shapes and sexes in each stage differ. The time spent in each stage also varies. Consider the Reds, the dominant marine algae. They have a three part lifestyle. One stage produces separate male and female organisms, each producing sperm and eggs which combine. This fusion occurs inside the housing created by the female cells. How it happens is a mystery as the Reds sperm, unlike Browns and Greens, does not have a tail and cannot swim. The next stage features growth and ‘fruiting’, releasing the product of the sexual union, known as a zygote. The

third stage is when the independent zygote grows, divides itself and releases spores. These spores are free living. They have half the complete set of chromosomes. They are a type of seed without any embryos to provide housing and nourishment. They have no need to be fertilised. Each grows a male or female body as described in the first stage. Within this cycle, the sea itself is both ambience and participant. These Algae are often attached to a rock, coral, boat or pier. From there, they release parts of themselves into the sea. But sometimes, waves will rip parts away. These living parts may continue with their life phase. They might grow into the next phase. Their offspring might settle somewhere. Or they all might become food for animals or decompose, becoming fertiliser for ocean floor or beach. Later that evening, I am at the cinema, wearing 3D glasses and watching a sci-fi movie about an imaginary world. The audience gasps as floating towards us are something like fluffy jellyfish. They land all over the hero. Wow. Is it a White Algae, with an aerial phase to its life cycle?

2010 seen as the year of writing fabulously

Letters continued from page 14

‘Our support for writers is stepping up a notch in 2010,’ says Northern Rivers Writers’ Centre writer development coordinator Susie Warrick. ‘Beginning writers certainly won’t be forgotten in this year’s program but the spotlight will be on emerging writers, with a number of small, intensive classes that will go deeper into territory in a range of genre writing. ‘Over the coming year a steady dripfeed of literary talent will flow into the region to share their knowledge – crack writers, publishers and industry professionals to instruct, inform and inspire on a range of writerly topics. ‘Seminars throughout the year will target specific topics of interest on the literary landscape. And an exciting new forum on the business of writing will be launched in October, where everything from copyright to creating a writer profile will be explored over a weekend of workshops and seminars in Bangalow.’ The Writers’ Centre program kicks off with a visit from respected Melbournebased novelist and biographer Robert Hillman late in January. Robert will draw back the curtain on autobiography and memoir in a mid-week evening seminar

disenchanted with the efficacy of petitions but the days when we were regularly accosted in the street by some enthusiastic person who would rabbit on about why we should make protest about this or that seems to have been replaced with a far more efficient system. To wit, last week I noted that outside a store in Mullumbimby there is a shelf provided whereon are spread out 32 (yes 32) petitions and form letters awaiting signature. How convenient. Each day as one arrives for his/her daily morning coffee it is so easy to scrawl a name on one (or the lot) of these petitions. As I recall there were petitions directed to long-suffering politicians and government departments requesting that someone out there should ....

and journalist Kristina Olssson putting writers of all levels through their paces and helping them to re-discover the joy of writing. Also starting early in February, Kim Wildman’s seminar series ‘New Frontiers: Travel Writing in the Digital Age’. This six-part series explores the reality of travel writing in the age of the internet. A roving freelance travel writer, Lonely Planet guidebook author and photographer, Kim will explore the realities of the current market and show participants how to build a career as a travel writer. The month of February closes with an exceptional opportunity for playwrights. Local playwright and dramaturg Janis Balodis will team with NORPA creative director Julian Louis to present ‘From Page To Stage’, a two-day masterclass exploring script development and how to write a successful performance piece for theatre. Bookings for all NRWC events are essential and early bookings are recommended as events sell out fast. Phone 6685 5115 or email susie@nrwc.org.au for more information or to book a place.

ban uranium mining, et al. I noted one woman sign six petitions with barely a glance at the object – daily habit might have made her familiar with each document. What a great idea this is – what a saving of energy – and so effective. I understand that one particular petition attracted over 3,000 signatures – about every man, woman and child in Mullumbimby must have signed. If thinking of supporting such initiative, you had best take along your own pen as evidently those originally supplied have been swiped. The cads. Being a hot-blooded nonagenarian I signed the petition designed to allow me keep my own harem of three women, encouraged by the fact that several single mothers had already signed this sheet. Yep, a great idea. Richard Kidby

win WIL TIX

We have a double pass to see Wil Anderson at the Byron Pandanus Lounge (at the Services’ Club) on Saturday and Sunday February 20 & 21. Email gigs@echo.net.au with subject header ‘Wil it to happen’.

On the eve of their gig at the Hotel Great Northern on Thursday and Friday January 14 and 15, Matt from the Beautiful Girls filled us in on the musical movements of this talented threesome. What is in store for the new album release? We’re going to be doing a huge Australian tour. Pretty much the biggest one we’ve done. We’ve been doing some recording with Jim Mogine from Midnight Oil and he’s been telling us old tour stories and getting us inspired. It feels like we’ve been spending too long overseas and we all would like to explore our own country a little more. What’s the secret to your recording? We’re anti-fancy. Why have you chosen Don’t Wait as the single release? It was more a case of it being the first song that we finished. Usually a band completes a record and picks its most likely ‘single’ but we’re still going with it (the recording) so we just decided to put out the first song we finished to give people an idea of which direction we were heading in. What are you listening to at the moment? I’ve been listening to a lot of instrumental dub music, old and new, and checking out all the cool sound effects they make and wondering how they do them. Does it help to broaden your listening when you are recording an album or is it best to not listen to anything at all? I find that I don’t really have enough time or energy to listen to much when I’m either writing or recording. It’s just distracting and inevitably something you hear will show up somewhere in your own stuff. I actually really love and value silence and always feel like I don’t get enough of it.

Beautiful Girls with Something To Say What is informing your songwriting at present? I guess just trying to make an album that hasn’t been made before. I want to play to our strengths as a band and incorporate sounds we haven’t used before. Lyrically, I have the same concerns as always. Basically we are just trying to make music that gets us excited and hopefully that will excite other people too.

Has your process changed since the beginning of The Beautiful Girls? Not so much. I usually demo the songs so that by the time the band gets them they are pretty much done. All that’s left is getting the guys to add their own flavour. It’s never been a band that gets together in a room and jams out ideas. It’s more of collective of friends who bring songs to life.

With runs on the board and a dedicated fan base how difficult is it to move away from your established sound? Is it something you think bands should try and do? It isn’t difficult at all, I think it’s harder to stay the same. The difficult part is facing all the questions afterwards and having to justify why you would want to change at all. It’s strange because I think change

is essential to growth but it seems music nowadays can be more about establishing a ‘brand’ and less about growing into something special. To grow and evolve it’s essential to experiment and not be afraid to fail. I’m not afraid to fail because it might make me better than I ever thought I could be.

culture Psalms and pearls Miriam OhevetEL and her ensemble SOUL SONG will present their Australian musical tour ‘Closeness to God’, an ecumenical musical event with audience participation at the Mullum Civic Hall on January 23. Miriam OhevetEL sings her melodies to King David’s Psalms, as well as to verses of Rumi’s mystic poetry. Tavor Ben Dor, musician and peace activist, accompanies her on Sitar. A percussionist will also be joining the duo in Australia. This one-and-a-half hour program includes songs and prayers based on inspiring verses of wisdom, taken from the Jewish and Sufi (Muslim) spiritual traditions, emphasising how much they have in common. The night will exemplify main themes of Inner/Outer Peace, Closeness to God, Love and Unity, while connecting with the audience through singing, dancing and sharing. Born and raised in Jerusalem, Miriam OhevetEL is a singer, songwriter, composer, poet, actress, dancer, therapist, teacher, and above all, an Israeli woman who is in love with God. She grew up in a Karliner Hassidic family, where she absorbed their passionate and joyous spirit. Miriam is also a Peace Activist working with ‘The All Nations Café’ www. allnationscafe.org, an artists’ initiative that provides space for Israelis and Palestinians who ‘refuse to be enemies’ to meet, sing, play and talk from the heart.

Ash Grunwald is still getting used to living in the Byron Shire, but he’s loving his new ‘hometown’ gigs. Ash, his partner Danni and their baby daughter, only moved to the north of the shire a couple of months ago but he has been touring up this way for years, always trying to figure out ways to stay around for as long as possible. ‘We used to live in Jan Juc, a small town close to Bells Beach,’ says Ash. ‘It was pretty fun, especially in winter when you could light a fire and get big offshore walls to carve, but it was also a long distance from Melbourne and the airport and there surprisingly wasn’t much of an alternative culture down there.’ It is the warmth, the vibe and surf that have finally tempted Ash north and his new home base suits him just fine. ‘The weather culture and waves would be the three biggest things I like about the area and now that we’ve been up here Picasso, mixed media, eco long as you can hold a pencil for a little while, I’d have to say or a martini then you are more collage and recycling for art are that it’s even better than we than qualified!

We were living in a motorhome

while travelling Oz and then spent two months in England, Europe and Canada. It’s a great thing to do as a family but we were all ready for a bit of a new phase. I’ve cancelled some of my overseas stuff so I can be around here more but I wil still have to go interstate a fair bit.’ Even though Ash is settling into life in the area, there is probably not much of a chance that you will bump into him at the supermarket, as he has just returned to the road for a string of live performances which will coincide with the launch of a new live album recorded on his last tour – Live at the Fly By Night. Ash will be joined by his band which features on the new live album, including Benny Owen on drum, car door and junk percussion and Kanchana Karunaratna – MPC sampler and West African drums. Already a multi-award winning artist, Ash Grunwald was recently an ARIA nominee for Best Blues and Roots album, and has received rave reviews for his last album Fish Out Of Water. Ash’s passion for performing has now been captured on his new live album, enabling his audience to take a piece of his show home with them. Ash’s next local gig will be at the Hotel Great Northern. He will be supported at his shows by Canadian band, Current Swell, who have been at the foreground of the ‘new roots’ music front pushing out of Canada’s west coast. ‘I toured with Current Swell on their last year’s winter. We had fun party gigs and did some snowboarding which was a highlight. It’ll be fun to have the boys on the road and show them Oz. They are a really great band.’ You can catch Ash and support at the Hotel Great Northern on Sunday night, doors open 8pm.

QUANTIC

NICODEMUS

beats nbops Jackie Onassid

AFRO LATINO with NICKODEMUS and QUANTIC THURSDAY AT TREEHOUSE Nico aka NICKODEMUS and William Holland aka QUANTIC are touring OZ with Caribbean, Latin American and African beats and sounds. NICKODEMUS has been spinning records since fourteen, producing events since sixteen and composing music since his early twenties. ‘I’ve produced, co-produced and released about forty original tunes, thirty or so remixes, ten compilation CDs and two full length solo albums called Endangered Species and Sun People. Music has clearly been my passion.’ NICKODEMUS is behind events such as Turntables on the Hudson and Coney Island Love. ‘Turntables on the Hudson is one of NYC’s longest running parties and I’m proud to say alongside my partners Mariano and Nappy G and the whole crew, we’ve always kept things funky and fun for everyone!’ www.nickodemus. com. Quantic’s first album release in 2001 was followed by twelve more. If QUANTIC is not producing, he travels as a DJ or with his band ‘Combo Barbaro’, who are spearheading a trend for the lesser-tapped sources of music from the Caribbean, Latin America and Africa. The album, ‘Tradition

In Transition’ released in 2009 re-invents Jazz, Latin and Caribbean music. QUANTIC’s track ‘Mi Swing es Tropical’ with Nickodemus further brought him to a global audience when it featured in Apple’s tropical Ipod Advert throughout 2007. NICKODEMUS now resides in Cali, Colombia’s third largest city, where he composes and produces in his studio ‘Sonido del Valle’ unearthing lost treasures from Colombia’s musical past. Quantic’s sound gives life to a sonic snapshot of the eclectic musical landscape of the Americas while NICKODEMUS whips with Afro beats. Both NICKODEMUS and QUANTIC are continually searching to arrive at unconventional musical destinations conjuring up a unique brand of contemporary music that ‘defies comparison’ - myspace. com/quanticmusic. I caught up with NICKODEMUS… Q: How do you guys describe your music? A: ‘It’s dance music that’s rooted deep in traditional music and funk from all over the world as well as new hybrids and fusions of electronic music.‘ Q: What does a Nickodemus/ Quantic DJ-set feel/sound like? A: ‘It’s like a rollercoaster ride through Africa, Colombia,

Puerto Rico, Egypt, The Balkans, Ethiopia, India and America.’ Q: Have you got any funny habits when working in the studio? A: ‘I guess I dance around a lot when I catch a good groove. I’ve also seen Quantic dancing with his cat.’ Q: Do you work with session musicians when writing your albums, and what do you look for in a musician? A: ‘Yes, I record often with musicians who have a special instrument or sound and can take direction well. Quantic’s been working with his Combo Barbaro from Cali, Colombia who are very special in laying the Latin groove.’ Q: What can we expect from your Oz tour and particularly your Byron visit? A: ‘Hopefully a wide range of sounds from all over the planet that makes people drop any inhibitions and just get down on the dance floor!’ Q: Have you been to Oz before and what surprised you about this country? A: ‘Yes, It’s amazing how dry and desolate the interior of the continent is and how Sydney and Melbourne don’t get along!’ Q: How does the Afro Latino combo go down with audiences? A: ‘Amazing – it’s a very

rhythmic funky combo.’ Q: Have you got a favourite dance move? Please describe? A: ‘It’s the Kid & Play foot-lock spin-step… I like to do that with my dance partner Eddie, back home we tear it up! Quantic is getting real good at Salsa dancing living in Colombia. ‘ All Salsa lovers, Afro beat freaks and Hip-House nutters, this is for you!

bit being when Jake inverts the joint in his mouth and directs the smoke, like a hose, up his son-in-law’s nose – Baldwin’s done that before, I thought. And what a farce the scene makes of the hand-wringing piety that public figures display when they get on their high horses to preach about drugs – here was a cinema full of Mums and Nanas cacking themselves at the carry-on. Overall, the audience was rapt (was it hormonal?), but as far as I’m concerned writer/ director Nancy Meyers did much better when dealing with similar themes in Something’s Gotta Give (2003). This is Joyce Grenfell in wolf’s Prada. ~ John Campbell

Nowhere Boy Referring to John Lennon as anything more exalted than rock star would surely fly in the face of his anti-hero, liberation politics and his Scouser’s native irreverence (yet still, as it is for Mao and Mary MacKillop, Jimi and Kurt, his image is enshrined; imagine that). But of all the truly influential artists who have impacted on the way we are, Lennon, through his lyrics, wore his heart on his sleeve like no other. There is not a Beatles tragic alive who is unfamiliar with the story of how he was brought up by his Aunt Mimi, not one who wasn’t floored on first hearing the naked wail of Mama don’t go, Daddy come home! from his Plastic Ono Band album (and hacked into in the credits of this). But less is known of Julia, his flighty, ill fated mother. Sam Taylor Wood’s film covers the period from Lennon’s last year at school to when he, Paul McCartney and George Harrison set sail for the red light district of Hamburg and the clubs where they were to hone their craft. Aaron Johnson as the ambitious, hot-headed and often spiteful young man is physically imposing but, excepting for the scene

into a previously elusive figure. Lennon’s wife Cynthia, whom he met at art school before the boys went to Hamburg (they were married in 1962) makes no appearance, due possibly to the fact that the screenplay was based on the memoir of Julia Baird (I’ve not read it), one of Lennon’s two half-sisters who lived with their mother. The movie is inclined to repeat itself and does not quite achieve the intensity of Control (2007), which was concerned with Joy Division’s Ian Curtis, but it is a welcome and perceptive insight into what made Lennon tick, into what made him later sing ‘love is needing, needing love’ – and ain’t that the truth. ~ John Campbell

recreated from a famous photograph taken of him as leader of the Quarrymen skiffle band at a fete, he doesn’t bear a strong facial resemblance to Lennon – especially if compared to Ian Hart’s remarkable likeness in Backbeat (1994) – whereas Thomas Sangster is simply too childlike and not pretty enough to be McCartney. But that doesn’t matter in the end, for irrevocably this turns out to be a movie about the pair of sisters who made such a lasting impression on the boy who wanted to be as big as Elvis. Kristin Scott Thomas’s Mimi is exactly as I’d always pictured her – strict, pale, unbreakable – while Anne-Marie Duff breathes unhinged vivacity www.dendy.com.au

The things you learn from run of the mill pop culture; I had no idea that some people had ‘his’ and ‘her’ sinks in their dream bathrooms. The concept seems criminally preposterous (come the revolution!), but whether it is grounds for getting off-side with a movie is debatable. Nonetheless, that was exactly my response to this rather obvious grey chick flick when asked to care about yet more lifestyle crises in the air-brushed world of California chic. Meryl Streep, the Eveready battery powered icon for women of a certain age, is Jane, a divorcee who has amassed a fortune as a pastry cook and is in the process of having an extension added to her immaculate, Neverland bungalow. She’s got everything that the glossies dictate you drool over, but the poor thing can’t get laid. On a trip to New York to attend the graduation of her son (who has, natch, been attending an Ivy League college), she finds herself at the bar of the Park Regent Hotel (or was it the Waldorf?) with Jake, her ex, played by big bad burly and now sweaty Alec Baldwin. Jake, a Lothario going-to-seed, is himself under the pump in a marriage with a much younger, feisty Latina who is impatient with his declining fertility, and her curly haired little brat boy. Jane and Jake get to talking, and drinking, and dancing, and‌ well, you can guess the rest. Meanwhile, Adam (Steve Martin), the drippy but mincingly decent architect working on Jane’s project, falls for his client, from which point the story writes itself. No comfort zones are breached and there is some well worn but equally well delivered humour, though the gags tend to be labouriously set up. Jane and Adam and Jake getting stoned at a party elicits plenty of hoots from those who need to remember how naughty they once were, the funniest

SICILIAN VINTAGE LUNCH Anyone who has ever had the urge to do a bit of grape-stomping should come along to the Sicilian Vintage Lunch at Ballandean on February 6. Ballandean is just below Stanthorpe, about 22 kilometres south of Brisbane on the New England Highway, and home of the Golden Grove Estate owned by the Costanzo family. Their rich Italian heritage is reflected in the award-winning wines they produce. Their tenth annual Sicilian Vintage Lunch is staged in the format of a full afternoon starting with wine-tasting with the family in the vineyard followed by a buffet lunch served with some very traditional dishes. Audience participation is a main feature, with volunteers asked to carry home the harvest in the form of a procession led by the goddess of the vineyard. The grapes are dumped into a large tub and after being blessed volunteers are asked to stomp the grapes to the music of the tarantella until the juice runs free. There are local folk singers and the whole event is a fun-filled, traditional experience for all ages. With bus pick-ups from accommodation points in Stanthorpe and along the main route to Ballandean, the cost is $65 a head and it kicks off at 12 midday. For more information contact Sam and Grace Costanzo on 07 4684 1291 or visit www.goldengrovee.com.au

BYRON BAY

Out of the lift they came, one amorphous mass of people jostling for the all-you-can-eat buffet. It was Andrew’s twelfth Sunday on the lunch shift and he had begun to recognise the regulars. Twenty eight floors up, the restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows offered views of skyline, beach and hinterland in an imperceptibly altering landscape no matter where you sat. A delicate and subtle spin, a gracefully curving rotation bore you through air, one revolution taking an entire hour, the restaurant on its revolving floor-plate and the world ever-shifting beyond the great panes. The tables were arranged in a circular pattern against the windows so that all the diners had views as they worked their way through lunch. Lunch – too churlish a word for the cornucopia of dishes arranged on seemingly endless white-clothed tables in the centre – was described in the brochures as a seafood and Asian extravaganza. But it was more than that: there were roast meats and their accompanying vegetables, ten types of salads, a bread basket brimming with rolls in assorted shapes. There were rice and pasta and couscous and several versions of mash. Cheeses and fresh fruits sprawled on wooden boards down the end where lavish desserts vied with opulent cakes and pastries. The Asian section consisted of steaming stir-fries and stainless-steel tubs of dim sum; the seafood was indeed an extravagance of prawns and crab claws and Balmain bugs, oysters and smoked salmon and mussels which gleamed blackly in a tomatoey sauce. There were scallops and prawn cutlets and curls of salt and pepper calamari. It was allyou-can-eat, and Andrew never ceased feeling amazed at the displays of wanton greed to which every Sunday he was witness. Plates piled under mountains of disparate elements: it made him sick. And yet this was his profession, a lanky shy man in his thirties for whom it had started out as a way to finance a degree he never completed. His favourite couple had arrived. Heavy-set – even portly – both of them, they were always laughing, drinking, chattering non-stop, returning to the buffet at least twice every lunchtime to replenish their plates. Appetites – or common greed – Andrew had never seen the like of – and yet they were rosy and cosy, jolly and warm, full of compliments, leaving

handsome tips and a sense of fun. They somehow made everyone else in the revolving restaurant appear mean and gluttonous and joyless. It was to be the second last Sunday Andrew saw them there together. Having been previously so religious in their attendance they suddenly stopped coming. Another twelve weeks had passed and Andrew was already dreaming about moving on, possibly to Japan where the restaurant at the Ginza Sky Lounge in Tokyo rotated counterclockwise, the only one in the world that did – or even to Switzerland where at a place called Mittelallalin was the world’s highest revolving restaurant. There they were, his couple, but almost unrecognisable. He was the most strikingly so in ragbag clothes which flopped around a skeletal frame. As for her, the opposite had occurred: she was massive, barely able to carry herself to the table. They barely spoke; they did not laugh. Her plate was a tower of assorted edibilities; his a base for several prawns he peeled perfunctorily. And then, abruptly, there he was on his a feet, a gaunt scarecrow raising his hand in farewell then flapping toward the lift. For several moments the woman ceased chewing. She seemed frozen, suspended in some transitional state, a giant statue, a block of stone. Petrified, Andrew thought to himself as he watched her heart breaking: she has turned to stone. She noticed him watching and the flinty, defiant smile she gave him did not reach her eyes. Then her fork was stabbing slices of roast meat mutinously and bearing them to her mouth until there was none left. Outside the windows the the rest of the world spun slowly, serenely, inexorably, indifferently past.

My destination was an Aztec ruin laden with the vine of the chortleberry deep within the the San Juan Mountains, a site vouchsafed to me in the dying words of a famous transvestite merchant banker. By the unruly banks of the Animas River Bonham-Carter discovered a branch on a tree which looked like any other branch but was not. We tugged upon it and a rock face opened with a grinding sound, not unlike Abbotsleigh’s teeth mid erotic dream of Bizzy Lizzy’s garter belt, and we found ourselves in a secret valley known only to the descendants of the Anasazi and a guild of cross-dressing money lenders.

Mexico when in fact the monk was referring to the cougar or it was merely a mistranslation of the local dialect for ‘babe’. Having feasted our eyes on the image of the gorgeous princess, we laid out a grand repast on the sacrifical altar. From a modest canvas rucksack Bonham-Carter produced shank of potoroo in an apricot relish, accompanied by Upper Upper Main Arm Reclusive Yowie Cabernet Merlot 1988. The man was not Sanders – no-one is – but he could have buttled proudly for any inbred royal family in Europe. It was as we settled for our post-prandial nap that the fever came upon us. I fell into a troubled dream of scenes from an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical of ‘Educating Rita’ while Bonham-Carter relentlessly wove Easter bonnets from the chortleberry vine. Were it not for a party of bankers, who took us to their camp and fed us restorative soup – we were obliged to don gingham frocks – we might never have escaped the princess’s thrall. It was certainly a holiday of note and I am thankful to my young nephew Brad, visiting from Los Angeles, who lent me the mobile phone that held the images which constitute my memory. – Recycled and adapted from an outing in July 2004

Mungo’s Crossword first published in The Week.

TAURUS: Saturn stepping backward in your work sector while Mercury moves forward in your house of travel suggests a holiday or getaway – meeting new people, exploring new ideas. Or taking an internal trip to get clear where you’re headed this year: inner space is teaming with insights, guidance and answers.

SAGITTARIUS: This week’s emphasis is on money, honey. Your mentor planet Jupiter’s busy on your behalf all year, although there’ll still be the occasional glitch. Dollars spent on career necessities won’t be wasted, or time listening to advice on cash management either.

PISCES: If this determined week has you feeling you have to choose between independence, freedom and adventure on one hand – stability, responsibility and commitment on the other, be advised that the real deal is figuring out how to harmonize, combine and balance them all.

AQUARIUS: Astral patterns are supporting a major sort out: recycling, replacing, giving away, donating or just plain chucking. If old habits start creeping back, give them the flick as well. It’s time to get that Aquarian genius ticking over on cash savvy strategies for the coming year.

SCORPIO: Doing things the same old way isn’t going to attract the support and opportunities you’re looking for this year. Friday’s new Moon offers a portal to pry open your mind and ask yourself: What is it I don’t know but need to right now?

The Australian Championship, currently underway in Sydney, is turning into a two horse race, with top seed Zhao Zong Yuan and George Xie apparently untouchable as the tournament enters the final stretch. In a tournament where juniors – mostly Canberra juniors – have scored upset after upset, Zhao and Xie have kept clear of the chasing pack, with Xie scoring a key victory over visiting English Grandmaster Gawain Jones. One round later Zhao also put veteran Grandmaster Darryl Johansen out of contention. Zhao, who finished second in his first Australian Championship a decade ago at age 13(!), is still looking for his Australian title, while Xie can also hope to qualify for his second Grandmaster result. (Three such results, plus a high world ranking, are needed to secure the GM title.) Many teenagers have stolen the headlines in Sydney but only Canberra’s Junta Ikeda has managed to stay close to the lead-

CAPRICORN: Retro Saturn and Friday’s powerful new moon eclipse in Capricorn are activating a quantum leap. Your self image is changing, so if things that used to excite you don’t seem to mean much anymore, let them go – make the adjustments necessary for current conditions.

VIRGO: Saturn retrograde could necessitate the need for budget cuts over the next twelve weeks. But more encouraging news is you’re likely to be forging alliances that help you cash in on your particular talents, while Friday’s informationrich Mercury/new Moon mix stimulates a brilliant idea.

LEO: This week Saturn steers you away from goals that aren’t in alignment with your soul purpose, while Friday’s new moon gives the green light for self promotion. People will be interested in your proposals and helpful with valuable contacts looking for your special qualities.

LIBRA: Eclipses can cause shakeups and breakups, but this week’s (the second in a fortnight) while initially stressful, stimulates improvements and new opportunities. With Saturn’s retrograde in Libra strengthening Mercury’s timely forward move you look like enjoying, if you’ll forgive Simpsonspeak, a cromulent week.

GEMINI: Destiny could present a turning point this week, something unexpected and unsettling. Take care of basics by assessing what’s possible to achieve at present and what’s a forget-it scenario – then close connections, creative adventures and spiritual exploration all get the astral thumbs-up.

Tutt to paddle with best in WA Sweeping reforms in proposed changes to lifejacket law

When veteran Byron Bay paddler Kurt Tutt will line up for ‘The Doctor’, the richest ocean paddling race in Australia this Saturday, he will look across the starting line and see not only the best surf ski paddlers in the world but also an Olympic champion. With more than $30,000 on offer ‘The Doctor’, a 24 kilometre marathon downwind paddle from Rottnest Island to the Scarborough Beach Auditorium, has attracted a who’s who of the ocean paddling elite as well as a host of top kayakers led by Beijing gold medallist Kenny Wallace. Included in this year’s field alongside Wallace is 2009 Doc-

tor runner-up Jeremy Cotter, 2012 Olympic kayak hopeful Murray Stewart, veteran world ranked ocean paddler Tim Jacobs and Wallace’s Olympic teammates Tony Schumacher, Jacob Clear and Dave Smith. Australia’s elite will shape up against a raft of international stars including leading South Africans Hank McGregor and brothers Dawid – third in 2009 – and Jasper Mocke as well as paddlers from New Zealand, USA, Hong Kong and Europe. None of those stars will intimidate Tutt who has a long history of success in both sprint and long distance surf ski paddling events in the ocean, particularly in down-

wind races like The Doctor. In the 2009 race Tutt flew home over the closing stages to finish sixth, just one minute behind the second placegetter and this year’s race favourite Jeremy Cotter. The Doctor will be followed up by a 25km team relay from Fremantle to Sorrento Beach the next day, Sunday 17. The Finn Kayaks Coastal Challenge Teams Relay event is suitable for all types of paddlers, from the elite to the everyday social paddler. Teams of two race from Fremantle to Sorrento with transitions City Beach. For entries and event info visit: www.oceanpaddler.com.

Submissions to Ports and Waterways Minister Paul McLeay on the proposed changes to lifejacket have closed. ‘The proposed changes represent the most sweeping reforms in more than 30 years and are aimed at ensuring recreational boaters wear lifejackets at times of heightened risk, particularly children and boaters in small tinnies,’ said Mr McLeay. ‘It is sad this discussion is coming during one of the State’s worst ever years for boating fatalities. In the last six months, 13 people have died in recreational boating accidents and many of these could have been saved had they been wearing a lifejacket. Clearly we need to rethink our approach to regulations in conjunction with an ongoing education campaign.’ Mr McLeay said in the past 10 years 174 people have died in boating incidents with just over half resulting from a person falling overboard or a vessel capsizing. Drowning has been the primary cause of death and only 7% of victims were known to have been wearing a lifejacket. ‘The proposed reforms are not intended to take the fun out of boating but these statistics are real and we know simply wearing a modern, comfortable, inexpensive lifejacket can dramatically increase chances of survival after a boating accident.’ lum Tennis Clubhouse, Byron Street Mullumbimby, Thurs 6.30pm start.

Mr McLeay urged boaters to have their say on reforms before the deadline of midnight Friday. ‘Despite extensive education campaigns the message of the importance of lifejackets is still not getting through and we’re losing too many people to unnecessary drownings. ‘In NSW, regulations already require that every boat carries a lifejacket for everyone on board, and that lifejackets be worn when crossing bars, offshore in kayaks and on jet skis. In the six years since the coastal bar requirement was introduced there have been just two fatalities or one every three years resulting from crossing accidents. Before that is was almost one fatality a year so there has been a two thirds reduction,’ Mr McLeay said. Proposed Changes It is proposed the minimum requirement would be for a lifejacket to be worn: t #Z DIJMESFO MFTT UIBO years old in a vessel less than 4.8 metres in length; t #Z DIJMESFO MFTT UIBO

years old when underway in the open area of a boat less than 8 metres; t 8IFO XBUFSTLJJOH PS wakeboarding; t 8IFO JO B WFTTFM MFTT UIBO 4.8 metres in heightened risk situations such as at night, when alone, and on ocean waters; t 8IFO PQFSBUJOH BO PGG the-beach sail craft in ocean waters; t 0O TNBMM SFDSFBUJPOBM DSBę such as kayaks and sailboards, at all times in ocean waters and when more than 100 metres from shore in sheltered waters; t 8IFO JO B WFTTFM MFTT UIBO 4.8m on alpine lakes; and t "U UJNFT PG A4LJQQFS +VEHFment and Direction’ - this approach would give a skipper the right to require passengers to wear a lifejacket if, for example, a change in the weather heightened the risk of a routine boating trip. The Discussion Paper and online feedback form can be found at www.maritime.nsw. gov.au or by enquiring at NSW Maritime offices.

Child near-drownings continue The Samuel Morris Foundation, which supports children disabled by near drowning or other hypoxic brain injuries, is concerned at the number of child drownings and neardrownings in recent months. Foundation managing director, Michael Morris said, ‘All drowning deaths are tragic, and drowning related accidents also take a great toll in terms of creating disability within our community. Unfortunately recent evidence suggests that both the drowning rate and the near drowning rate are on an upward trend. ‘The 2009 National Drowning report showed an increase in the toddler drowning rate over five year average and recently Dr Paul de Jong has indicated that in Queensland alone (the only state to reveal these figures to date) there have been 56 near drowning presentations to hospitals since June. If this trend continues it will represent a 16% increase in near drownings during the year. ‘We urge all parents to be vigilant with young children in, on or around any water source.’ Foundation co-founder Jo-ann Morris said, ‘Unfortunately the summer months are the peak periods for child drownings with 41% of all toddler drownings occurring during this period. Near drownings can have a devastating effect. One minute the child is normal and then the next the child may be left severely disabled due to a brain injury from lack of oxygen, with the consequences lasting a life time and affecting the whole family and their community. ‘It can take a family a very long time to adjust to a tragedy like this; unfortunately many marriages will not survive this amount of upheaval and trauma. Events like this can

<echowebsection=News Extra>

also have a significant impact on siblings and can result in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which may affect the sibling for years to come. ‘The outcome of a near drowning will always be better if CPR is started as soon as the child is found. Every parent should learn CPR as you never know when you may need it to save your child’s life, or the life of someone else’s child, and you should learn CPR regardless of whether you have a pool.’ The Samuel Morris Foundation wishes to reinforce the four key messages of Royal

North Coast Population Boom B

oth the Byron and the Tweed Shires are in the midst of a population boom. The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) records show, that to June 2008, the overall population growth for New South Wales was 1.1% with the far north coast grasping a bigger chunk of that pie. The Byron shire gained .5% more humans than the state average while the Tweed attracted a whopping 1.5% extra folk.

for the area. ‘Our population growth is due in part to what the far north coast of NSW has to offer,’ says Peter. ‘As we are now approximately one and a half hours drive from Brisbane and a 50 minute flight from Sydney and with business being done on the internet, I believe we will continue

to be inundated with more and more people looking to make the sea change or even just the far North Coast change. Towns with people that say hello as you walk the streets and the feeling of belonging to a community is now becoming more important to people and their fami-

lies, this is a safe haven to start a family and raise children.With the growth predicted to continue my forecast is that the supply of property both to buy, sell and rent in the area will become very limited and the price will continue to increase.’ Photo & story Eve Jeffery

Backlash Despite there being many other pre-Christmas events on the night, there was a huge turnout for the recent concert to support local charity African LEAF at the Buddha Bar. Fans were there early to secure a ticket to see Australian music legend, Brian Cadd perform, along with Rick Fenn (guitar) Greg Lyon (bass) Alan Park (keyboard) and Jesse Balfour (drums). African LEAF would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to all those who came to the concert. Special thanks go to the musicians and the management of Byron Bay Brewery for their generosity and support. For information on African LEAF, contact admin@ africanleaf.org,au.

Grail Quest

Introduction to Grail Quest (an 8-week course) which is the opening term of the two year parttime foundation course.

...a journey into the Spiritual Science of Rudolf Steiner...

GRAIL QUEST offers a modern form of adult education based on the work of Rudolf Steiner. Through a deepened understanding of the inner workings of the world and ourselves, inner development and soul transformation are brought about. This in turn leads to an enhanced capacity to transform the outer world. The course consists of lectures, discussions and workshops which are expanded through artistic experiences in music, painting, sculpture, story telling, speech, drama, craft and the new art of eurythmy. No previous artistic experience is necessary. The emphasis of the course is away from competition and is focused on individual growth. The course aims to teach through the heart, hand and mind and to bring our efforts to fruition through love of the deed. GRAIL QUEST is also the prerequisite for the Steiner Teacher Training programme.

56 January 12, 2010 The Byron Shire Echo

Some of the themes explored in the course are: The Quest for Meaning. The Elements. The Temperaments. Sacred Geometry. The Origins of the Earth & Humanity. The Evolution of Consciousness. Christology. Mystery Schools & Mystery Centres. The Birth of Modern Consciousness in the Renaissance. The Search for the Holy Grail.
