1 THE BYRON SHIRE Volume 24 #44 Tuesday, April 13, 2010 Mullumbimby Byron Bay Fax ,000 copies every week DAZE OF WHINE AND POSERS Byron Region Community College Term 2 course guide in this week s Echo Shearwater s fight for survival So long the Wongs Victoria Cosford The Wongs will be missed. After more than 30 years in Byron Bay they are moving on. A familiar sight around town on their one-person bicycle, Kim aged 90 and Kam aged 88 will soon be moving up to Jeta Gardens in Bethania, Queensland, a Chinese nursing home. Owners of the Red Ginger Food Stores Leslie Ford and Marina Batalha have known the Wongs for the last eight years; the couple is often seen perched in front of the Byron Bay store. They are part of Red Ginger, Marina told The Echo, they look the part! The Wongs met in Hong Kong where Kim had fled to escape the Communist regime and went on to train as a chef. They came out to Australia in the 70s, Kim running his own restaurant in Wollongong before they made the move to Byron Bay. At the roundabout where now stands the ubiquitous surf shop, Kim soon became chef of the town s very first Chinese restaurant. It was a good business, he told The Echo via Marina, who acted as interpreter. There were not many restaurants in those days. They built one of the first houses on Pacific Vista Drive, where they have been living ever since up until fairly recently cultivating their own garden of vegetables and medicinal herbs. The Wongs do not speak English, although, according to Leslie, Kam used to speak a lot more but since she continued on page 2 Moya Sayer-Jones and Jane Hanckel are part of the bid to raise $2 million to keep the Shearwater school open. Local businesses have come out in support in a feature on page 21. Photo Jeff Dawson Eve Jeffery Moving into the fourth week of a proposed ten week Voluntary Administration, the Shearwater Steiner School in Mullumbimby says they have received messages and pledges of financial aid from across the community and overwhelming support from both Australia and overseas. The entire school community is maintaining a confident attitude in the face of possible closure and the general outlook is of a positive continuation into the distant future. Mark Robinson from PPB, the current administrators, says that there is still an ongoing investigation onto how the school arrived at its current financial situation and that a report of the findings will be sent to creditors by April 23. PPB says that the school was previously incorporated under the New South Wales State Associations legislation but is now a company limited by guarantee under the Commonwealth Corporations Act. The change was made earlier this year before our appointment as administrators. We understand that the change was made to facilitate the improved governance of the school and recommended to the school by government authorities and other advisers in the education sector. Mr Robinson says that they have been made aware of potential substantial benefactors in support of the school. The school continues to operate with the support of parents, teachers and the government authorities, he says. The school community is implementing a fundraising drive for donations and is making approaches to potential substantial benefactors. One of the next steps during the VA will be to call for a meeting of the creditors committee which was formed at the recent creditors information evening. A meeting of the committee can only be validly convened by the administrators, says Mr Robinson. We intend to call a meeting when we receive for consideration an indicative proposal for a financial restructure of the school under a Deed of Company Arrangement (DOCA). The Shearwater community has begun fundraising in earnest and has created a Save Shearwater Facebook and website. Members of the community will have the opportunity to donate money to the campaign through the site which displays both bank and PayPal account details. Money will be placed in an independent trust account to be overseen by the VA and returned to benefactors if the school is not made viable.

2 Local News So long to the Wongs of Byron Bay continued from page 1 retired, a lot less. They ve somehow got by. Neighbours are supportive; locals give them lifts home. It is really only Marina, these past years, with whom they have been able to communicate in their own language although Leslie recalled the few months following Kim s accident when Kam stayed with them and her English started to creep back. (Two years ago Kim fell off his bike and broke his hip. People would come into the shop asking how he was, Marina said. Everyone thinks they re my parents! ) The Wongs leave their Byron Bay home. Photo Deb Tinker In fact they have in a sense become Marina s family, this impeccably attired couple already feeling sad about leaving. The The Poinciana is open seven days a week from 8:00am. Breakfast is served all day on weekends & until 1:00pm weekdays. Lunch service is from noon til 3:00pm. We re open for Dinner most Friday & Saturday nights from 6:30pm & bookings are essential.

Some days it s pretty hard work they re not even my family and for eight years we ve been running around looking after them. But they ve actually helped me: I ve embraced them and they ve become my family. They love Byron Bay but their life has shrunk. Slowly things have got too hard. Jeta Gardens is the first aged care resort in Australia whose management, design and services are based on Eastern values and philosophies. There is a Chinese garden and staff who can speak one or more Chinese or Asian languages. Leslie told The Echo that the Wongs will be treated there the way old people in China are treated, as the gold of society. In front of Red Ginger the Wongs Grandfather Wong and Auntie Helen prepare themselves to be photographed. But not before Kim has bent down to retrieve an offending piece of discarded rubbish, and carried it solemnly and carefully over to the nearest garbage bin. The Wongs would like to thank their friends and neighbours who have done so much for them, the girls from the AMCAL pharmacy and Byron Bay for a wonderful life. Garden launches regen project The Mullumbimby Community Garden will be launching its organic bush regeneration project on Wednesday April 21. The garden will be setting up a pod, or working group, to undertake regular working bees to control weeds and plant native vegetation along Saltwater Creek on its boundary. The launch will commence at 9am and there will be information provided regarding the project and the local environment including plant identification, organic weed control demonstrations and a tour of the site. As no chemicals will be used the project will require more manual labour than a conventional regeneration project. However, there are many community garden members committed to making this a demonstration site for organic bush regeneration. Rainforest Rescue have supported the project by contracting Madhima Gulgan, the local indigenous bush regeneration team, to assist volunteers at the start of the project. The group will meet every Wednesday between 8am and 12pm. Volunteers can turn up to the site to help out any time within these hours. The community garden is located at the southern end of Stuart Street beyond the museum/market site and adjacent to the tennis courts. Please wear appropriate footwear and bring gloves.

3 Local News Main Arm man fined $150,000 for bulldozing road into koala habitat Longtime Main Arm resident Christopher McIlrath has been fined $150,000 for developing a road without Council consent through koala habitat and clearing 255 trees. Byron Shire Council brought the case to court and magistrate Jeff Linden also ordered Mr McIlrath to pay Council s $60,000 legal bill. On February 5, 2007, a neighbour complained to Council about a road being bulldozed through the Kohinoor multiple occupancy. According to a document tendered to the court by Council s solicitor Ralph James, it turned out that the Kohinoor MO knew nothing of the road and had not authorised it. The road builder, Hardings Earth Moving of Uki, was fined $17,500. According to the document, a Council officer had phoned Mr McIlrath on February 7, 2007, to request him to cease all works. On February 9 the officer inspected the roadworks and observed a significant number of native trees greater than three metres in length that had been pushed over. The road passed through rainforest and the officer observed many rainforest species that had been destroyed. In correspondence with Council Mr McIlrath said he intended merely to upgrade an existing track to his land. Council told the court it had A Council photograph of the roadworks and tree clearing at Main Arm.

Council plans Bangalow land rezonings Six land areas in Bangalow are proposed to be rezoned for residential purposes. Byron Shire Council s executive manager of planning Ray Darney said once released, the land will offer up to 150 new dwellings. The sites have been identified in the Bangalow Settlement Strategy 2003 and the Byron Shire Local Environmental Study 2008 and are located at Granuaille Crescent/Rankin Drive, Ballina Street, Thomas Street/Charlotte Street and Parrot Tree Place in Bangalow. Mr Darney said the sites will need to be rezoned from general rural and agriculture to 2(a) residential. The rezoning of the land will allow for future land parcel releases to accommodate a mixture of residential house blocks, townhouses and retirement villas, he said.

5 Local News David Duff takes on the Tour de Cure Story & photo Eve Jeffery Story & photo Victoria Cosford Every 29 seconds someone in the world will hear the words, I am sorry, you have cancer. Every single day next week, 300 Australians hear the same thing and the week after and the week after that. The sadder truth is that 60 per cent of all cancers are preventable. A lone cyclist will leave Mullumbimby on Sunday May 2 on a personal mission to do his part towards finding a cure for cancer. I have committed to cycle about 600km starting in Mullumbimby on May 2, says David Duff, who is the manager of the the Mullumbimby Bridglands Homemakers furniture and bedding store and its secondhand division. I will be riding a gruelling circuit through Uki, Kyogle, Woodenbong, Killarney, Warwick, Stanthorpe, Tenterfield, Casino, Lismore, Ballina, Byron Bay and back to Mullumbimby to raise money for cancer research. David is completing his ride in support of the the Australian Tour de Cure which this year rides from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast. David has set himself a fundraising goal of $20,000 which he plans to present to the Tour de Cure cyclists when they come through Mullumbimby next month. Cancer is a disease that affects us all, says David. We all know someone who has suffered from the disease. David has himself lost two people to cancer his father, who did not survive a three month battle At the recent official opening of the Fletcher Street Cottage for the homeless in Byron Bay, another small launch took place. Self-described singer, songwriter, poet and inventor Mark Plummer presented to the crowd his two-bicycle invention called the Quaddy. Mark, 60, has Parkinson s Disease. Originally from Melbourne, he came to Byron Bay about four years ago. I found this the best place in Australia and decided to stay! he told The Echo. His idea for the Quaddy essentially two identical bicycles clamped together with a tray-like apparatus in between was inspired by an incident in which the surfboard held by a man riding a bicycle, a not uncommon sight in the town, somehow slipped, causing a foot to go into the spokes. He lost three toes, Mark said. So my thoughts were to find a solution. After endless discussions with an engineer friend, Ivar Reynolds from Mullumbimby, they came up with the concept with pancreatic cancer, and a work colleague who became a friend. Megan Keightly-Buttelman was taken by cancer at the age of 29. Megan was employed by Sealy Posturepedic Bedding as a sales account executive and our friendship grew from a strong business relationship. Her love of life, her smile and her work ethic continues with me daily. A lot of the Homemakers franchise stores fundraise for cancer in her honour. Mark s Quaddy finds a new gear in cycling of a tandem bicycle with provision for surfboards or, as Mark points out, for groceries. There s nothing like it in the world, said Mark, who has researched via the internet. We re getting patents and copyright. We ve even got the Mark Plummer and Katie Thompson, Cottage Coordinator with the Salvation Army, test drive the Quaddy. David says he has been getting in some training for the ride and has been cycling about 150 kilometres a week in preparation. He knows the 600kms is a big ask but says that the pain and muscle fatigue he will go through on the ride will be nothing compared to what cancer patients have to suffer. By the end of 2010, cancer will be the number one killer in the world. It will kill more people on our planet than malaria, tuberculosis and HIV combined. This year Mark Berretta from the Channel 7 Sunrise program is undertaking the ride and will be presenting his morning sports reports while on the road. The Tour de Cure will arrive in Mullumbimby at about 10am on Friday May 14. David says riders will stop at the Bridglands Homemakers store for around an hour.

7 Local News Another Byron Icon closes Story & photo Victoria Cosford One of the increasingly rare specialised independent businesses in Byron Bay is about to close its doors. Icon Books in Jonson Street, purveyors of secondhand books, has been run by Rob Delahunty and David Horrocks for the last four years but a combination of factors is now impelling them to vacate the premises. David told The Echo that Byron looks very busy but what s the demographic being attracted here? This is part of the issue most businesses in Byron are catering to backpackers. For a business like ours, you need families. Backpackers want everything to be the cheapest and this is the headspace you re dealing with here. According to David, Byron Bay has been resting on its laurels for too long as a tourist destination, citing recent media reports which demonstrate its position in the top five as ceding to places like Yamba. There s this whole fantasy idea that Byron Bay is the most desirable place in the world but it needs to be maintained Byron needs to mature as a destination. He believes that the town s party reputation needs to be seriously addressed in a bid to attract the sort of people who David Horrocks and Rob Delahunty of Icon Books. might patronise a small business such as his. Equally disturbing is the burgeoning use of the internet for shopping. We re competing against ebay and Amazon, with everyone selling and buying online. These are our frustrations, and now you ve got ebooks coming in. Internet selling will eventually affect all Byron businesses in general. In five to ten years there s going to be less demand for retail shops and all these empty shop spaces will grow as a result. David thinks that it s coming to the tipping point where retail businesses will eventually no longer require a physical presence. High rents in town constitute yet another reason for the move. Obviously, high rents are a big issue we re paying the same rents as they do in Sydney and Brisbane, said David, who together with Rob moved here from Sydney. The boys are currently looking at other locations outside of Byron CBD possibly even at Bangalow. We ll let everyone know where we go, David said. We feel good about what we have done, and we ve got ideas and plans for what we do next. He hopes it will be somewhere close so we can continue to service our loyal customers. With this little gem of a bibliophile s hub only open until the end of the month there s not much time to go and grab a bargain. Icon Books, at least for now, is at Shop 1/109 Jonson Street, opposite the Dendy Cinema. Migrating birds set to take wing During March, April and May many thousands of birds leave the Australian shores on their long migration to the breeding grounds in areas across the northern hemisphere as far away as Alaska. The Byron Bird Buddies (BBB) is reminding people to be particularly careful and not disturb resting shorebirds when walking along our beaches or in the estuaries at this time of year. Some birds have already departed but many, such as the Wandering Tattler and Pacific Golden Plover, are preparing to leave our shores in the next couple of weeks. To make these long flights, some travelling over 10,000kms in one hop, it s important for the birds to take on fuel in the form of body fat which is stored as a thick layer under their skin. Migrating birds body weight can increase by up to 70%-80% above their normal need. Large amounts of energy are required just to lift off so unnecessary disturbance while they rest depletes this crucial fuel supply. Bird Buddy member Jan Olley reports that many migrating birds have been observed at the Belongil and Brunswick estuaries as well as the West Byron Wetlands this summer. Birds are now showing signs of weight gain and attaining their bright breeding plumage. The migrating Little Terns are also feeding along the coastline and resting along the beaches and estuaries as they move north from their breeding sites along the east coast to the Asian feeding grounds. Although they are presently feeding at the Belongil estuary, breeding was not observed. Five pairs of breeding Pied Oystercatchers successfully fledged seven chicks but the small Red-cap Plover which has been nesting at the Belongil estuary for the past five years has decreased in numbers and did not make any attempt to breed this year as major disturbance by people and dogs is still a frequent occurrence.

8 Council roundup CUSTOM BUILT FURNITURE ~ KITCHENS ~ BATHROOMS ~ ARCHITECTURAL JOINERY PHONE: / Michael McDonald What began as a bang took on whimper-like qualities towards the end. Byron Shire Mayor Jan Barham s notice of motion called for a mini-bypass of Byron Bay to trial over the next summer period but gradually got watered down by recalcitrant councillors to a call for yet another report on the possibility of a diversion, the bypass you have when you re not trying to call it a bypass. At last Thursday s meeting Cr Barham s motion called for Council to commit to the development of a bypass of the town centre of Byron Bay via Butler Street and the second rail crossing near the railway station to allow for a trial of the use during the summer period of 2010 and It would also see discussions initiated with adjoining landowners and lessees to facilitate the trial and clarify the design and the inclusion of a temporary roundabout at the Marvell Street intersection. By the end of the debate councillors voted 6-1, Cr Cameron opposed, for staff to produce a report on the options. Zeus knows we desperately need more reports. [The bypass] has been on the books only for a couple of decades, Cr Barham began confidently if ironically. Quite frankly, I d be happy if we just did something. Let s try something, let s be bold. We ve had a DA alive for eight years can we do something for the next peak season? Apparently not. Cr Richard Staples saw a need for more clarity. He cited a 1985 comment from then councillor Mike Watterson that the bypass needed to be close to the town centre. He shared the mayor s frustration with the issue. Cr Tony Heeson described it as a very difficult situation. You want a Marvell Street roundabout by Christmas hullo? Cr Basil Cameron worried about money sunk into white elephants, which sounds rather painful. We need to look at the Want the best solar hot water system?

Flat plate collectors perform very well in warm sunny conditions, as the ambient temperatures are high, but summer is not when hot water requirements are the highest. During cold months when the ambient temperatures are low is when hot water demand is highest and it takes the most energy to heat the water, and so when solar gain is of most value evacuated tubes greatly outperform fl at plates under such conditions due to the superior insulation properties. Wind therefore also has much less effect on evacuated tubes than on fl at plates. Contact us for an obligation free quote Hansel points out an opportunity in affordable housing. whole transport network, he suggested, we need to have alternatives to driving your car into the CBD. By this stage Cr Barham was clearly frustrated by the debate, and pointed out that she was talking about a temporary roundabout and a bunch of water barriers, not some grand design. This is a very real problem, and I think we re failing the community [not doing something]. And so they must, until at least the next report. As Cr Cameron pointed out, most people seem to want to come into town, not go around it. Even so, Cr Barham could see her concern for local tradies alleviated if a mini-bypass allowed them to duck around the CBD. The alternatives include park-and-ride and the promotion of cycling, which might not accord with the wishes of Queensland tourists. There is always the camouflage trees at the highway end of Ewingsdale Road for a serious diversion locals would have swipe cards to get past the barrier but that might put a few entrepreneurs noses out of joint. Granny flats are go One small step for affordable housing: on Cr Barham s motion councillors voted 7-0 in favour of getting a staff report on the state government s State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP) on Affordable Rental Housing released in September last year. The aim is to enable folk to develop granny flats, perhaps 60 square metres in size, for the growing population of older single people and single parents living alone, possibly without the need for Council charges. We have people living in fear of compliance problems, said Cr Barham, and [yet] we re doing a disservice to people with desperate housing problems. You can got to Suffolk Park and see garages turned into flats which rent out for $1,000 a week. I don t often think the state government does something right but on this occasion I do. There s a high need for affordable housing and it doesn t need to be a monster house. Cr Staples pointed out that well over half the Byron Shire population is on a low or very low income. The only way is to look at planning controls, he said, and allow very modest temporary dwellings. We can look at caravan parks and simple accommodation for those who are willing to do it tough. Coastal challenges Mayor Barham tabled mayoral minutes on the Seachange conference in Byron Bay in March and the national climate change forum in Adelaide in February, which she attended. She noted no real action on climate change warnings since 1977 but seemed impressed with the national forum you can read the speeches and presentations (interchangeable nomenclature like bypass and diversion ) at initiatives/national-coastalrisk-assessment/national-climate-change-forum.aspx. The Seachange conference attendees were very excited by our [West Byron] sewage treatment plant, according to the mayor. After all, there is a lovely wetland reserve involved. You can find the conference report at From that conference Cr Barham was chosen as the local government representative to a new body, the Australian Coastal Alliance, which will provide an access point for all the research on climate and coastlines. When the next king tide comes in, we can just throw a few truckloads of reports at it. The bypass file could on its own save Belongil. Burney spruiks the north coast plan Minister for Community Services Linda Burney was in Lismore last week, talking up the benefits of the government s North Coast State Plan. The plan is one of 11 NSW local plans that outline the major actions the government is taking following community consultations held across the state last year, she said in a press release. The main areas of focus for the Far North Coast are: region; and supporting jobs; development; and social housing. One of the State Plan s goals is to increase the proportion of children with skills for life and learning at school entry so I am pleased to announce that eight preschools across Lismore (Parish Centre Pre-school), Coffs Harbour, Nambucca and Byron are approved to receive funding under the NSW Government s Preschool Investment and Reform. The NSW Government recognises the need to increase participation in preschool programs throughout the children s services sector. That is why we are implementing strategies such as the Preschool Investment and Reform Plan to create more places in areas such as Northern NSW. Under the Plan, together with funds from the National Partnership Agreement on Early Childhood Education, we are investing $50 million this year to create 5,250 new preschool places by With this, an additional 10,500 children will be able to attend preschool programs for two and a half days per week in the year before they go to school. In order to best assist families, the Preschool Investment and Reform Plan targets areas where research has shown additional preschool places are most desperately needed. While in Lismore Ms Burney also visited a men s anti-violence project and met team members from Northern United and the Lower Clarence Magpies, who were participating this season in Tackling Violence, the Government s antidomestic violence program in partnership with regional rugby league clubs. Reducing family violence is another important priority within the State Plan and, as Minister for Community Services, I am pleased to support initiatives like these which help reduce the abhorrent levels of family crime in our state and, in particular, on the north coast.

10 Comment Volume 24 #44 April 13, 2010 Cost of tourism What seemed a straightforward request from the Brunswick Heads Visitor Centre (BHVC) turned into a philosophical debate for Byron Shire councillors. Last Thursday Deputy Mayor Basil Cameron put up a motion to give the BHVC $5,000 to tide them over to the end of the financial year. The vote went his way 5-2, Crs Morrisey and Tabart opposed, following some pretty spirited discussion. The philosophical debate was around the perennial issue who should pay for tourism? Cr Tabart was of the opinion the business sector should look after itself. Cr Simon Richardson, who worked at the centre as part of a small business event, saw it as crucial to the public face we want to show people. While reluctantly supporting the motion, Mayor Jan Barham called for the tourism industry to get a grip on their responsibilities people are making money and giving nothing back, especially unauthorised holiday letters operating outside health and safety legislation. Council finds itself putting its hands into its (our) pocket for all kinds of causes. While many small businesses in Bruns would operate on a shoestring, surely a couple of successful tourism operators could have come up with the five grand. In any free market, there are those who will do good by the community and those who will take the money and run. Obviously not all who benefit from the visitor centre as a public face of Brunswick Heads are pulling their weight and, as not all ratepayers benefit from the tourism industry, not all care to put their hand in their pocket for the sake of the free market. Last drinks Mayor Jan Barham is putting up a notice of motion calling for Council to support a 1am lockout trial for Byron Bay nightclubs and to seek support from the local Liquor Accord and the State Government for its implementation. She points to a new campaign, by the NSW Police Association and a coalition of emergency service workers, called Last Drinks which supports a 1am lockout for the state s nightclubs and hotels. It follows on a trial of tougher licensing laws in Newcastle, which saw assaults after dark fall by 29 per cent. You can read all about it at Ambulance officers, nurses, doctors and police are sick of dealing with the effects of intoxicated patrons of licensed premises late at night and early in the morning. They are abused intimidated, threatened, assaulted and injured more often than not because of alcohol-fuelled violence, notes the website. I m sure most people would want all our emergency service workers protected from drunken hoons creating a public menace. It s not like people s freedom of choice is being interfered with. There s plenty of opportunity to take booze home earlier and get shit-faced in the privacy of your own home with friends, if you re so inclined. Until (some) young men s brains develop after the age of 25 and they realise there s more to life than getting pissed and fighting, there s no real reason the wider community and emergency workers need to wear it for the benefit of late night liquor revenue. Michael McDonald, editor Kevin swallows the bitter little pill An ever increasing proportion of national revenue will have to be devoted to health simply to remain standing still. by Mungo MacCallum So Kevin Rudd has finally admitted what everyone else realised some time ago: fixing the health system is going to cost a huge amount of money and it s no good pretending otherwise. Ambitious reorganisations are simply not enough. Certainly they are useful and necessary, and Rudd s plan to reform hospital funding and planning is by any measure a good start; the only real criticism is that it doesn t go far enough. But the cost of keeping abreast of new medical technology is rising much faster than the rate of inflation, and this means that an ever increasing proportion of national revenue will have to be devoted to health simply to remain standing still. And this does not include the problems of an increasingly long-lived population and the inordinate demands the ageing make on health care. The choice is stark and straightforward: if the system is to provide the level of service to which the public has been conditioned to believe it is entitled, someone is going to have to pay and in the end, as always, the buck stops with the taxpayer. A sensible government would already be explaining this dilemma and preparing the public for the inevitable; indeed, a really sensible government would have begun the process long ago. But because of the media-conditioned aversion to tax increases of any kind for any purpose, the problem has been allowed to fester away until fixing it has become a nearrevolutionary task. It is to Rudd s great credit that he has at least embarked on the process; but the hard part persuading the punters to abandon the habits of a lifetime and accept that there is no such thing a free health system is yet to come. Perhaps he could make a gentle start by raising the Medicare levy perhaps doubling it. If the voters believed that it would provide value for money, they might even accept it. But at present they are still being told by their respective premiers that Canberra is the source of unlimited wealth and that if the feds would only release it all would suddenly be well all gain and no pain. Victoria s John Brumby is, as usual, the worst offender; until last week his health policy consisted entirely of insisting that Kevin Rudd should give him a gigantic bucket of money or he would refuse to play. This has since been refined into something a tad more sophisticated, but the core demand remains. The general view of the commentariat was that Brumby is just grandstanding for his local state audience and this is probably true; the standout was (of course) Dennis Shanahan in The Australian, who wrote admiringly that Brumby had raised some serious and relevant questions and was quite capable of sabotaging Rudd s plan for the hospitals in the same way he sabotaged the national water agreement, and wouldn t that be fun? It used to be thought that the outlying states Queensland, Tasmania and Western Australia had cornered the market in parochialism. Brumby, egged on by Shanahan, has upped the ante considerably. Nonetheless, the likelihood is that despite some lukewarm support from Kristina Kenneally in New South Wales, he will finally be brought to heel when the crunch meeting of COAG begins next week. Rudd has already started to hand out the biscuits: $500 million for emergency services of Saturday, $740 million for aged care beds on Sunday, and there is doubtless more to come. The bribes will help, but the overriding issue is that the voters really want health and hospital reform, and are likely to inflict a horrible punishment on any politician who is seen to be standing in the way of it. This is a much bigger issue than the water rights of a few recalcitrant irrigators, and Brumby is smart enough to see it. Incidentally this does not necessarily mean that Rudd s fallback threat of a referendum would succeed; during a long campaign the premiers and others could muddy the waters considerably. But it does mean that no premier hoping for re-election will want to be the one who pulls the plug. Rudd s plan or a slightly amended version of it will probably get past COAG. Then comes the hard bit. It is to be hoped Rudd is up to it; his behaviour over the asylum seekers suggests that he is still finding the hard decisions a bit too hard. The announcement that processing of Sir Lankans and Afghans would be frozen for three months and six months respectively justifies Tony Abbott s description as a quick election fix being seen to be doing something about an apparently intractable problem. Rather than taking Peter van Onselen s counsel and showing leadership, Rudd has capitulated to the shock jocks and to the scaremongers of the opposition. Dennis Shanahan called it a populist response to a highly successful populist campaign waged by Abbott and his shadow minister Scott Morrison; Van Onselen accused Abbott and Morrison of trying to rabble-rouse their way into government. But there was little doubt that it was a copout, and one which is unlikely to provide the government with much relief. For starters it is a broken election promise: Rudd s policy was that asylum seekers were to be fully processed within ninety days. Now the Afghans will have to wait twice that long before their first interview. The justification, if it can be so described, is that conditions have changed; the prospect that the boat people can be sent home without having a well-founded fear of being persecuted (the test for a genuine refugee) are now brighter. This assessment is highly dubious. Sri Lanka is certainly more stable, but then, the most ruthless dictatorships often are. The stability does not mean that the government will be any less brutal to what it sees as rebel Tamils, especially those who have attempted to flee its shores. And Afghanistan, of course, remains a bloody mess, as it always has been and probably always will be. Manuel Jordao, a senior official of the United Nations High Commission on Refugees, may well have been right when he said that people smuggling, with the introduction of spotter s fees and cut price fares, was out of control. Rudd s move does nothing to bring it under control; at best it buys him a little time. Given that his opponents are constantly accusing him of procrastination, this may not be the shrewdest of moves.

11 Letters Holiday letting s embryonic mafia Over the past year or so the case has been well made that Council staff have systematically looked the other way in relation to holiday letting while adopting a gung-ho approach towards unapproved dwellings, particularly in rural areas. In this debate there is a third interest group which has been quite ignored: those owners of legitimate accommodation houses (motels, caravan parks, B&Bs) whose business has suffered at the hands of the prolific holiday letting industry. I finally got around to this problem at last week s Council meeting when I asked whether Council has received complaints and submissions from those affected. I was quite stunned by the mayor s response; obviously glad to get it out of her system she replied that yes, she and Council had received numerous Water resources All hail to Miranda Jordan s excellent idea to have a Water Watch Congress at Rocky Creek Dam (Echo, April 6). What s more important to a community than clean water? Education is where it s at. It is the children who will lead the way to our sustainable future. Let s hope this becomes a regular feature on the school curriculum. Majenta Appel-Pye Mullumbimby Bluesfest noise We acknowledge that the Blues and Roots Festival contributed to the Shire s cultural diversity, and brought welcome trade to the retailers. It is nice to know participants are reported as having enjoyed themselves. complaints and representations. Not only that but some complainants had been abused and threatened such that they were no longer prepared to speak up. Jesus. Okay, we already knew there were some ugly minds in the Byron Bay business community, but a local embryonic mafia protecting its turf through intimidation is a step too far. I remind readers that last year the GM wrote that his staff were pursuing unapproved rural dwellings in fairness to those who had gone through the proper approval process. Why then have we heard nothing from him about fairness to those motel and park owners adversely affected by holiday letting? Ditto the Department of Planning. Last year they wrote that Council s precinct plan for holiday letting might adversely affect the finances of some individuals who would be prevented under the plan from letting out their houses. Not a word about the finances of motels and holiday parks (nor about the finances of rural landowners for that matter). It s high time those affected by holiday letting get themselves organised and come out of the closet. If they know who the intimidators are they should go to the courthouse and get an AVO. (Don t bother about the cops, they don t want to know). They might want to write something about it in The Echo, which under the circumstances, would be prepared, I imagine, to protect their identity. They might contact me so that I can include the information in my forthcoming complaint to the ICAC. Or they might get in touch with the ICAC themselves. Don t bother about the ombudsmen, they re as useful as tits on a bull; in fact Most of the inconvenience to local residents seems to have been well tolerated as being in line with expectations. The notable exception, however, was to the surrounding district s otherwise quiet nights which were rhythmically blasted by over-amplified low frequency noise. For any of us fortunate to be half deaf, it wasn t a serious problem. But we are aware that for at least some with normal hearing, the noise at a distance of 3km-4km brought physical discomfort. For those close to the source we would have thought the sound levels were physically damaging. But that s not our problem. As for wildlife, who cares? The difficulty might be totally eliminated if items requiring bass bombardments were rescheduled for daytime. Some planning advice in this regard seems indicated. If this particular aspect of noise were ameliorated we could all look forward to living together as good neighbours.

At the same time another section of government is positively encouraging another group of people to buy their way into Australian citizenship. By encouraging people to do Mickey Mouse occupational courses and more or less promising permanent residency after four years this is precisely what is happening. welcome amenity for an evergrowing area, competition for a very over-priced option that we are now stuck with. All this begs the question, just how representative are these so-called residents associations and can a handful of individuals claim the right to represent the needs and desires of an entire suburb? In my experience they are usually made up of a disproportionate number of people suffering from the not in my backyard syndrome. They are usually anti-everything that might effect change even if it might be for the good. Often it is anger that drives them but not directed anger, just an aimlessness in their lives that vents itself in negativity and wowserism. There are obviously a myriad of reasons people become involved in such groups but altruism is seldom the driving factor. And if it is, one visit to a meeting would be enough to frighten any sensitive but progressive soul away. Do they poll the entire area? No. Do they welcome dissent? No. Are they prepared to listen to reasonable alternatives? No. And we do not get a much needed supermarket simply because of their shrill cries. Great outcome. Chris Anderson Byron Bay The naked truth To the women who stopped going to Tyagarah. I have good news. After two years of inadvertent research, I ve found the best way of taking back our right to feel safe and free on our wild open beaches. I d tried the walk away and scream approach, the Stop f*%king following me approach, the calling the police approach but the most effective one by far was the talk to them like they re little children who simply don t know the rules of politeness in public approach. It s really simple. Mothers would be especially good at this, hence it took me two years to figure it out. This is how I did it. I walked over to the individual who appeared out of nowhere, laying with his dick and eyes pointing towards me, close enough that I could feel his slimy tentacle energy. I stood tall in front of him and his dick, looked him in the eye, said Hi, and politely asked him if it didn t feel odd to him to lay himself down that close to me, while there s like five miles of open beach. I told him that generally we leave one another at least 100 metres or so of personal space. He said, Okay, I ll leave, having put his legs together and sat up. I went on to say, It s men like you who cause women to feel unsafe on this beach. He said again, Okay, I m leaving. Well, he left, I didn t. It felt so good! He totally got it. They re harmless. really, they just really need to be told. Let s just tell them and they ll get it. Lizelle Le Roux Mullumbimby Steiner crossroads The Shire has benefited from two wonderful Steiner schools. Unfortunately, this Steiner nirvana has come crashing down with administrators of the Shearwater School revealing $10m in liabilities. I believe the events of last week bring into sharp focus the conclusion that two PK-12 Steiner Schools within such proximity is economically unfeasible and foolhardy. In response the new administrators are now actively involved in changing the constitution, the management and governance structure of the school. Coincidentally the Cape Byron Steiner Council has had the foresight to propose some excellent recommendations to change its own constitution, and over the last six months has made two judicious management appointments. Now with the events of last week, we are approaching a fork in the road. One road for the Cape Byron association members is to focus on their own piece of paradise in Ewingsdale and consolidate its operations. The other path takes a broader perspective and looks to their neighbour with open minds and warm hearts. Would the 900 odd Steiner students in the Shire receive a better educational experience from two independent Pre Kindy to Class 7 Steiner Schools in Byron and Mullum, and one Senior Parsifal College from Class 8 to Class 13? Could the opportunities presented from a larger peer group and world-class facilities at one campus in Mullum be superior to the current offering? While heartening to read of the upbeat response at Shearwater, I truly don t know if there is the will to change the current If Australia is to get the best out of its immigration program, then all sides of politics need to do a huge rethink in particular in regard to its many anomalies. Basically as I see it in the looming global climate crisis we need to encourage more Asian farmers, whether they can speak English or not, rather than more middle class sophisticates. The success of the Hmong people in Tasmania and Victoria is a case in point and it is to be remembered that the success of areas like the Barossa Valley (German) the MIA and the Australian sugar industry is largely due to the industry of Italian and Maltese migrants. David Gilet Byron Bay structures in the best interests of students at both schools. Mark Stephan Class 4 parent, CBRSS Ewingsdale GM crops v bees An Echo reader has recently published ( com/savethebees) an article with 29 references that provides evidence suggesting that the global loss of bees known as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) may in fact be caused by genetically modified (GM) crops. The GM crops contain an insecticide called Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) and the immune response bees have to the Bt causes them to lose their memory and forget where the beehive is. That s why no dead bees are found in hives with CCD and the bees simply disappear. For those who are not so interested in the bees and all the food they bring into being, the peer reviewed journal Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology (4): p (PMID ) has shown that in animals that ate GM corn: chemistry measurements reveal signs of hepatorenal toxicity. Additionally, triglycerides rose by up to 40% and sodium and phosphorus excretion by the kidneys was dramatically reduced. Nearly everyone in the Western world has eaten GM foods and GM foods are not labelled as GM foods. The recent release in Europe of a GM potato with a gene for antibiotic resistance may well provide equally unexpected outcomes in the food chain. Peter Olson Goonengerry Solar hot water To offer a correction to an otherwise great argument by Adrian Gattenhof in The Echo last week, in an active electrically pumped solar hot water system, the pump merely needs to move the water, not lift it. As stated, the pump does need to overcome the thermosiphon force of the hot water wanting to rise back to the panels, but this alone would be something in the order of only a few watts of increased power, over the task of the pump overcoming the skin friction of the pipes, which is also minimal, as the flow rate is not great. It s a closed system, and when the hot side is pumped down to 12 April 13, 2010 The Byron Shire Echo <echowebsection=letters>

13 Letters Clean water for Gaza the storage tank, the cold side gently rises to the panels under the weight of the hot water coming down. Think of a ferris wheel. Now think of a large looped pipe filled with water. Now imagine a tiny pump sitting somewhere in the loop, creating a gentle flow around and around. Certainly a tiny tiny fraction of those dinosauric 3.5 plus kilowatt heating elements are still sitting in so many homes. And gas is not much better either. But the passive solar tank above the panels, is a no brainer. It s wonderfully simple and automatic with virtually no moving parts. Just avoid systems with vitreous enamel coated mild steel tanks with sacrificial anodes. They require cost and maintenance because the two materials expand and contract differently and the enamel cracks, then the steel rusts, and that s when the anode kicks in, to slow down the rusting. But eventually the anode chemically dissolves away and needs replacing, but by then, the tank is pretty well rusted anyway. Horrible. So, get a stainless steel tank, as they don t rust and hence don t need the anode in the first place. My passive system has cost me only $2 in boost heating, over the eight years it s been happily sitting on the roof. Go for it. Just do it. It s a hit. Tim Shanasy Byron Bay Dear Simon Dear Simon Berger: congratulations on becoming the Community Relations Manager for Woolworths, and we hear on ABC s Australia Talks ( ) that you are proud to be working for this company. To assist your community relations with the community of Mullumbimby, we invite you to come to a public meeting in Mullumbimby so that you may understand some of the concerns which our community have in regard to your When the Student Parliament at the UN Boys School in Bureij Refugee Camp, Gaza, were asked what was the most important thing they wanted, they chose clean water. Gaza is in the midst of an extreme water/sanitation crisis because of its history, its rising population and poverty, the Israeli blitzkrieg and the siege which blocks the import of building materials, pipes, machine spare parts, cement, electrical infrastructure and fuel. In 2005 when Israeli settlers were rehabilitated from Gaza to the West Bank, they left a trail of destruction. Water mains were bulldozed, electric lines torn down and tons of sand removed, thus intensifying sea water contamination of the aquifier which is Gaza s major water source. The Middle East Children s Alliance (MECA) has now provided clean water to four more large UN schools in Jabalia, Nuseirat, and Shati refugee camps and to two kindergartens in the town of Beit Hanoun and in Maghazi Refugee Camp. MECA is seeking supporters to expand the Maia (Arabic for water ) Project to schools throughout Gaza. A large purification unit for a UN school in a refugee camp costs $11,300. The UN schools run in shifts due to overcrowding and each unit provides drinking water for 1,500-2,000 proposed big box in sleepy Station Street. In the meantime, perhaps you would be kind enough to address some of these pressing matters: We understand that Woolworths is disputing their S94 Contributions to the required infrastructure to service your big box such as road improvements, pavements and concrete roundabout. This externalising of costs means that ratepayers will have to foot the bill. Please explain. Currently the Department of Planning is assessing a Modification (3) to the DA for your supermarket. These changes are not on exhibition and we want to see them as we understand that they include the planting of landscaping trees in the irrigation areas which may result in tree roots going down the pipes. Please explain. Transparency with regard to these matters, for a start, would go a long way to improve the current displeasure with your company. Please advise when you d like to come and establish some personal relationship with our community. Deborah Lilly Coordinator Mullumbimby Community Action Network Here s health Where has all the money gone? We re supposed to have been booming for over ten years, house prices have quadrupled compared to wages, so how come hospitals are broke? It s not just the private health insurance rebate. Here s four ways you are being robbed, and ways to fix them. Number one, tax on mining company profits has been cut from 50 to 30 per cent. Well, even Tony Abbott knows that s too low. We can raise that. What are they going to do, move the mine? Number two, the income share of the wealthiest Australians has been rising while paying proportionally less tax. That s why the rich keep owning more of the pie. We are becoming less like Europe which children and staff. The small units are located in community centres with after-school programs and summer camps so the units serve these children as well. I sent $US2,000 to MECA on behalf of donors from Byron and elsewhere which will pay for half a small purification unit serving up to 250 children. Our Byron community has a longstanding record of care and compassion. It is hoped that local schools like those in the US will twin with their Gazan counterparts and raise funds to provide the water purity we take for granted. Gareth W R Smith Byron Bay can afford good health care and pensions and becoming more like the USA or Argentina: inequality means only the rich can afford those things. So, we increase taxes on income above $450,000 per year. Thirdly, the huge foreign debt we take on to speculate on house prices pure inflation costs us huge interest repayments. So, an awful lot of our boom money goes straight overseas, via our banks. That debt must be reduced. There s a fourth that follows from that. Our business, land, and even houses are for sale to overseas buyers. Great for one (the seller), bad for all (Australia). As long as we continue to sell away our country, we sell away our income. We must regain ownership of our country. We can t fund health? We can t afford to train people? We can t afford decent pensions? We can t afford even to monitor the Great Barrier Reef? There s a hole in the bucket, from the Kimberley, through the Hunter, all the way to Mt Isa. Matthew Hartley Independent candidate for Richmond Dangerous crossings My 70+ mother lives in Mullumbimby and walks up town each morning to the shops. Last Tuesday morning as she stepped out onto the pedestrian crossing between the newsagent and middle pub a lady turned the corner from the main street, narrowly missing my mother, and continued on her way totally unaware she had nearly hit a pedestrian. My mother was unhurt other then her frayed nerves. Unfortunately this is not the first time something like this has occurred. Are people aware of the road rules? Pedestrian crossings are there for people to cross the road safely. When will the Byron Shire Council act to make the crossings in Mullumbimby safer when a pedestrian is seriously injured?

14 Articles/Comment Eyes on the outrageous in nature Story & photo Mary Gardner The scraggly eucalypt tree marks the start of the hill on my street. I m cycling. I could press on, but I often get off my bike here to walk the last fifty metres home. Maybe I lack physical stamina. But my true vulnerability is for anthesis. That s botanical for blossoming. Isn t every eye on these outrageously pink flowers? Over the past few weeks, I watched several buds at eye level. They swelled and little caps popped off. (That pop is how eucalypts got their name, as the word itself is a Latin construct describing this unique event.) Then a mass of pink stamens, the plant s male parts, presented themselves. The yellow tips, its anthers, are full of pollen. Not a petal in sight. In the middle of each blossom is a pistil, the female part. This matures after the male stamens have already released their pollen. The time delay means the pistil is more likely to be brushed with the pollen of another plant altogether. Pollen will grow a tube down BUILDING DESIGN HOUSE PLANS RENOVATIONS EXTENSIONS the pistil and fertilise the eggs at the bottom. Beneath this floral display is a tough green cup, which is filled with nectar. This sweet beverage is the mainstay of insects, birds, bats, gliding possums and even lizards. The eucalypt produces fairy-sized flagons of this high carbohydrate energy drink especially to attract the larger visitors. These pollinators travel far which is important to eucalypts, scattered as they are over the huge Australian landscape. Australia is well known as a very old island continent, MSOIL TESTS & ENGINEER S DETAILS K ichael ALL TO COUNCIL SPECIFICATIONS elly DRAUGHTSMAN PH EARTHMOVING ROADWORKS DRIVEWAYS / slowly moving towards Asia at a rate of six centimetres a year. Approximately 25 to 10 million years ago, the climate throughout much of Australia got very dry. In this stressful period, thanks to the eucalypts happygo-lucky pollination policy, they and their animal helpers survived. As locales changed even more, the plants specialised, developing into many different species. Well, that s one way of explaining the development of approximately 800 species. There appears to be a few for every environment. But in trying to clearly name the different species, botanists find great trouble. The species just won t stand true enough. Their variability, even from tree to tree, is so great. This news, for me, is a relief. I tried identifying this tree, comparing it with several others close by. Even within a species, eucalypts can vary in flower colour, so that s not always helpful. This tree is a new Corymbia species or an old Eucalyptus one, depending. Another group, Angophora, is also so closely related and as difficult to tell apart. The casual observer is safe sticking to the label eucalypts. Part of this confusion may be because of Biology itself. The idea of species has 14 current useful definitions. Species can be simply decided by looking at differing characteristics. This works for some eucalypts, but not all. Another famous and often used definition is that its members reproduce naturally with each other, producing offspring of each gender who can also reproduce true to type. This has been applied to eucalypts, but with mixed results. Working through the many definitions, the difficulties still grow. This doesn t mean that the idea of a species is pointless. It suggests that something else is going on at another level. Definitions have to keep up, especially because Biology is, well, sticking to the biology. Another definition of species is that pool of descendents of a common ancestor. The pool maintains its own integrity over time. It stays distinct even as, due to variations, it changes over time from other descendents. Investigating eucalypts using this definition prompts changes such as the Corymbia- Eucalyptus classification. But staring deeper into the many eucalypts shows up a really weird thing. Some species, which appear to be very variable, are now looking like a complex of hybrids. These result from natural cross breeding: a parent with an offspring or even another species. A team in Tasmania found one major species was revealed to be a hybrid complex of at least four lineages. Not only that, three other eucalypt species also show this particular variation of DNA. That can only happen with crossbreeding. This hybridisation is not the well known multiples of chromosome variety. That process results in say a hibiscus whose flowers have more petals than the parents. This type is the successful mixing of genes and growth of plants that can reproduce themselves. Now, another Australian group of trees, the paperbark, also appears to harbour some complexes happily hybridising in a similar way. These plants are part of a pattern over space and time called reticulate evolution. They wreck havoc with the notion that a species is a solid building block or unit in nature. They also reshape our ideas of evolution. According to Ford Doolittle, an evolutionary microbiologist, an intertwined network is a more fitting image of evolution than a branching tree. Meanwhile, at sea, J E N Vernon believes species of coral could also be better understood as reticulating hybrids too. Vernon is a coral specialist and former Chief Scientist at the Australia Institute of Marine Science. After years on reefs throughout the world, Vernon finds that a species of coral is only a clear entity within a limited geographic space. Over greater distances, coral seem to exist as interlinked patterns changing continuously. Spawning in ocean currents as do corals has parallels with trees blossoming and enticing roving animal pollinators. Each in their own way, they seem to let fly and trust to forces outside themselves. That coral or this eucalypt, active in its own context how do we put a name to these moving targets in the everywhen? Shire zoned out Dailan Pugh Byron Shire has suffered from extensive land clearing in the past. The first European settlers began to take up selections in 1881, and by 1900 almost all of the 75,000ha Big Scrub (Australia s largest area of lowland sub-tropical rainforest) was cleared for agriculture. Now 23% of Shire lands have native vegetation, though most of this is in coastal swamps or hilly country, and half has severe weed problems. The experts maintain we need to increase this to at least 50% if we want to stabilise populations of native species and minimise our future losses. In 1986 Byron Shire Council moved to protect its remaining native vegetation by adopting a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) and in 1988 it zoned lands for environmental protection in the Local Environmental Plan (LEP). The zoning was ad hoc and limited, though the TPO has been extremely successful in providing protection for the Shire s native vegetation. Unfortunately, under the NSW ALP s new planning regime, all Shires are prohibited from having TPOs in rural areas and thus the only vegetation control left for Council is the zoning process. The NSW ALP has thought of this and greatly restricted the zones that can be used and the constraints that can be applied in them. The Environmental Conservation zone (E2) is the one intended to protect land that has high conservation value, and is the only zone which provides any meaningful protection. High value areas Since the 1988 zones were identified, Council has expended significant resources in undertaking vegetation mapping (1998, 2007), undertaking flora and fauna surveys, preparing the 1999 Flora and Fauna Study and preparing the 2004 Byron Biodiversity Conservation Strategy. This should have put us in an excellent position to identify the highest conservation value areas and provide them with the highest level of protection. Until April Fools Day it was proposed to protect most of Council s identified High Conservation Value (HCV) native vegetation in E2 zones in the draft of the new Local Environmental Plan. On April 1 Byron Council voted to slash the HCV vegetation included in the E2 zone by some 80% by limiting the application of the E2 zone to a subset of the environmental protection zones identified back in All the data collected since then, along with the Biodiversity Conservation Strategy, were deemed irrelevant. The rationale for this is that the 2007 vegetation mapping was not properly reviewed by Council staff and thus included some areas it should not have, such as orchards and houses. So rather than urgently reviewing the mapping to exclude such anomalies, or excluding the relatively low value vegetation causing the problems, or inserting a clause to overcome the problems, Council decided to throw the baby out with the bath water. There are many people who live in this Shire who spent years trying to protect rainforest and oldgrowth forest on public lands. It is thus extremely disappointing to see that Council has resolved to provide the highest level of protection (E2) to only 21% of our best rainforests (<10% camphor laurel) and 38% of our best oldgrowth forests (>30% old senescent trees). There are also large areas of Endangered Ecological Communities which occur on Shire lands that Council has resolutely excluded from the E2 zone. Danger of extinction Due to Council s resolve to return to the 80s they are also denying appropriate protection for our threatened species. The Coxen s Fig Parrot is in imminent danger of extinction, yet Council has denied the highest level of protection for its only location on Shire lands. Of the primary and secondary habitat identified for the Koala on Shire lands only 21% is to be zoned E2. For the habitat of the endangered Mitchell s Rainforest Snail only 57% is to be zoned E2. The list goes on. There are 331 locations for 31 species of endangered plants on Shire lands, of these only 84 locations of 17 species occur within areas now allowed to be zoned E2. Despite their desperate plight, Council has resolved to only provide 25% of the locations of plants in imminent danger of extinction with needed protection. Vulnerable plants have fared no better. Council s decision to ignore the past 22 years of biological data collection and limit the highest protection in the new LEP to a subset of the areas identified in 1988 exemplifies the worst of political bastardy. There is no environmental science involved, and no consideration of the need to appropriately protect rainforest, oldgrowth forest and threatened species. The current Council has set back conservation in this Shire by 22 years. They have fooled us, and they do shame us. With no TPO to fall back on, the future consequences will be dramatic. 14 April 13, 2010 The Byron Shire Echo <echowebsection=letters>

15 Articles Craig McGregor looks at a classic surfing feud Dropping in on the board wars Going Vertical? It s as good a description as any of the shortboard revolution which transformed surfing in the sixties and seventies and helped transform Byron Bay from a working class, poverty-stricken township to the surf-and-beach magnet it is today. It s also the title of a new surfing film which opens at the Byron Dendy Cinema this week and features local surf legends like Bob McTavish and George Greenough, as well as world champions from Nat Young through to Kelly Slater. The theme of the film is the never-ending argument about who pioneered the revolution : the Australians or the Americans? As you d expect from a movie produced by Robert Raymond and directed by David Bradbury, both of them locals, it tends to favour the Australian surfers who, back in the sixties, started chopping down their longboards to create one which was much more manoeuvrable and allowed surfers to climb and drop up and down the face of the wave instead of just trimming across it. Shortboard design But it also gives a lot of film space to the Californians and the Hawaiians who were experimenting with shortboard design at much the same time including Dick Brewer, the Hawaiian/US shaper who describes himself modestly as a genius and Bob McTavish as an idiot! As veteran surfer Greg Noll comments exasperatedly: What the shit is going on? For the next 80 minutes or so the film portrays the argument between the two rival camps via some fantastic footage of the heroes of the time, including Midget Farrelly, Gerry Lopez, Mike Hynson, Greg Noll himself, Nat Young, Rusty Miller, Bob Cooper, Wayne Lynch and others. It includes clips of the Gidget movies, takes of the stoned-and-acid era ( I was stoned pretty much for eight hours every day, says Nat), interviews with John and Paul Witzig (who skilfully publicised the Aussie power surfing style) through to brief sections on Kelly Slater and Mick Fanning, the modern gurus who inherited the surfboard revolution and who have brilliantly refined both the boards and the way they ride them. There are some historic shots of a young George Greenough surfing Lennox Head and other north coast beaches on his radical kneeboard spoon, which many people believe pioneered the shortboard era and virtually introduced the idea of vertical surfing. Today George has The long and the short of it: Bob McTavish with the longboard and Mick Fanning with the shortboard. THE BYRON BAY PREMIERE OF GOING VERTICAL is on Wednesday April 21 at Dendy Cinema from 7pm, with many of the local stars and people behind the movie expected to attend. This event is also a fundraiser for the Northern Rivers Community Foundation (NRCF). Tickets cost $20 for adults and $15 for students and concession, and are available from cinema. The NRCF will receive fifty per cent of ticket profits. Money raised from this premiere will help the NRCF continue its work supporting a wide range of local community service providers, including The Disabled Surfers Association, Kyogle Youth Ventures and the UNCLE Project. For more information about the NRCF go to abandoned his spoon and surfs off Watego s in heavy swells with a half-inflated mat. But the star of the film is Bob McTavish, who chopped half a foot at a time off his boards, used Nat Young as his test pilot, argued with yet shared ideas with Dick Brewer, and inspired Gerry Lopez, in one of the loveliest moments in the film, to declare that when he and others saw McTavish carve out a near-vertical line on a Sunset swell everything changed. Says Lopez: He drew a line on a board that no-one still standing on a surfboard had ever done before. Robert Raymond started off to make a biopic of McTavish and he has included a hilarious section about the episode when McTavish and a mate stowed away on a passenger liner to Hawaii, free-surfed the North Shore for a fortnight, finally got arrested and sent back to Australia. But as the film developed it expanded into a wide-ranging documentary of a pivotal moment in surfing history. I remeber when a team of Californian surfers, who had come out for the Melbourne Olympic games, surfed Manly on their Malibus and astonished the local surfers including a young Midget Farrelly, who went on to become world champion. The makeover (and the rivalry) had begun. Going Vertical is a generous film and, despite their arguments, the Australian and American surfers are generous in their tributes to one another. In fact the movie ends with Brewer and McTavish strolling companionably along the beach at Sunset agreeing that both nations had a hand in the surfing revolution which devloped into the extreme, superathletic, in-your-face art it is today. Craig Mcgregor is the author, with Nat Young, of The History Of Surfing and with Midget Farrelly of This Surfing Life.

16 THE IT CROWD SAVE 50% OR MORE Buying a printer? Let Inky Business help you choose. We can save you lots of money! INKY BUSINESS 19 Tasman Way, Byron Arts & Ind. Est Is it time to take your tablet? SHRED POTOMAC The news riveting the IT world for at least the next 25 seconds is the arrival of the Apple ipad. Anyone would think Apple had just invented the computer tablet. The term tablet for this style of laptop computer, with or without a hinged lid, became more commonly used in 2001 when Microsoft launched into the market. The earlier emphasis was on the stylus but now has switched to the touch screen, like the ones Tom Cruise worked in Minority Report. (As an aside Microsoft also offers Surface surface, a kind of touchscreen coffee table, which is nowhere as groovy as SixthSense www. sixthsense.) Apple has grabbed attention with its clever hype for what is essentially an iphone on steroids. For the young and the cool, you ve got your i s on your phone, your tunes, and now your pad. The cheapest ipad launched in the States for $US499, which is about $539 in Australian dollars at the moment. By comparison, Dell offers its XT2 for $3,499 and the Fujitsu Lifebook SH560S comes in at $1,353. The Australian retailer gives a good idea what the major players besides Apple have on offer. So what does the ipad do? You can get the company rundown at It looks like being a pretty web-friendly e-reader, which is great for those who want to download books and newspapers onto a touch screen which provides the sensation of turning pages virtually. It might even find a market with the sight-impaired older citizen who finds not enough variety in large print books. As with the iphone, you ll be able to download hundreds of third party apps, some of which will be useful. What doesn t it do? It doesn t support Adobe Flash, or have a USB port or a camera all fairly essential these days. The ipad s touchscreen keyboard is still pretty small for big hands; a mechanical keyboard and dock is expected to be coming, but that s another cost. Contenders like Hewlett Packard, with its latest Slate, are set to capitalise on those oversights by introducing other tablets later in the year. You can be sure there will also be cheap knockoffs of the ipad technology, as there was with the iphone. Should you buy one now? Try one out in a store. See what your impetuous friends think of the one they queued for. The drawback in everything the latest in IT is it is only the latest until tomorrow.

Sure you can save a couple of dollars shopping around for cheaper prices on your expensive ink cartridges but those are tiny savings compared to buying a printer that has economical cartridges. For instance I can sell you one ink cartridge with a 190 page printing rating for $27 or another one with a 2200 page rating for $55. You would have to buy five of the $27 cartridges at a cost of $135 to get less printing than the $55 cartridge. Basically the rule of thumb is that the cheaper the printer is to buy the more expensive it is to buy the ink. At Inky Business we are able to help with advice on finding you the right printer to suit your needs and wallet.

20 Articles Man woman beast: hybrids Jane lands the big Fish Man Woman Beast is an exhibition of new works from Bangalow s Michelle Dawson and Brisbane based Jan Van Dijk. Inspired by the fantastical creatures of myth and legend, the pair present a showcase of unexpected existence, from Dawson s Dr Moreau s Kitten with its leopard s head, moth s wings and serpent s tail to Van Dijk s Jack Reindeer an evocative exploration of human animal hybrid forms. In addition to their individual drawings and paintings, the artists have collaborated on a Make Your Own Beast series. Working with standard size canvas panels, they have each produced sets of interchangeable heads, torsos and tails that the public can interact with. Once a set of three panels has been selected and purchased, the newly created unique hybrid critter will be considered finished, and hung. Local artist Michelle Dawson was born in New Zealand, and moved to Australia in She has twice represented Australia in Romania, at the Intercontinental Biennial of Small Graphics, and in 2009 she was shortlisted for the Children s Book Council of Australia Crichton Award for Best New Illustrator, for her work on the stunning children s/art book how WEIRD is that..., created with local writer/musician Gyan. Michelle s work invariably includes animals, although of late she says the creatures have begun to cross breed and hybridise. Her current predilections include Tasmanian tigers, Jack Reindeer, by Jan Van Dijk. dodos, big cats, hyenas, crows, wings (on anything), fairytales, halos, pomegranates, Velasques ruffs, putti, stormy skies and monsters. Jan Van Dijk is a self-taught artist who credits his father and grandfather, both also artists, as his greatest inspiration and influence. At the age of 32, he has already amassed a significant body of work, gained national and international gallery representation (in Paris), and published two artist books. His brightly coloured mixed media works and paintings are an ode to the folk of the middle ground, expressing in a single piece both profound regret and childlike hope. Man Woman Beast opens at Retrospect Galleries, Friday April 16, 6pm, and runs until May 3. The artists will also be drawing in the gallery on Saturday April 7, and available to talk about their work.

The Visions of the Valley photographic competition held in conjunction with the Brunswick Valley Nature Festival in June starting on World Environment Day will have prize money totalling $1,500. The photographs can feature our natural landscapes, native birds, animals, fish, other aquatic life or plants. The photograph must be taken within the Brunswick catchment which extends from Yelgun to Broken Head. The competition has been made possible by the generosity of the Hotel Brunswick and its continued sponsorship which this year is also supported by prize money from Brunswick Valley Landcare. Entry forms will be available at Council Offices, ACE in Mullumbimby and Byron Bay and can also be downloaded from the Brunswick Valley Landcare website For more information contact Richard Smith Photos will be exhibited at the festival. Ocean Shores author Jane Camens has won the prestigious Irish competition, the Fish Short Story Prize. Fish Publishing runs three annual writing contests the Fish Short Story Prize, the Fish One-Page Prize and the Fish Poetry Prize. Renowned authors and poets lend their time to the judging process and select the shortlist of stories and poems from the three writing competitions to be published in an annual Fish Anthology. The anthology is launched during the West Cork Literary Festival ( ie). This year the anthology will take the name of Jane s story A Matter of Luck. This year there was a short list of 140 stories out of a total of 1,800 entries from around the world, Jane told The Echo. I knew at the beginning of March that I d been shortlisted, but with so many on the list didn t imagine I had a hope. I knew the prize was due to be announced on March 17 (St Patrick s Day) but I was so busy on the day I didn t check. At the time I was in Hong Kong at the literary festival there and it didn t occur to me that the organisers might have been trying to contact me and wouldn t have been able to get hold of me as they had my number in Ocean Shores. Two days later when I saw I had an from Fish I figured they were just writing to let me know who won. Then I noticed it said Urgent! When I worked out it wasn t an early April Fool s Day joke and that Mary McKillop had come good for me (may the saints be praised), I opened the first of many bottles of champagne I ve since shared with friends. The prize is a generous 3,000, of which 1,000 is for travel expenses to the launch of the anthology.) Trouble is that at that time of year (July) it costs more than that to get to Ireland. As I m the first Australian to enjoy the honour of this award, I contacted Qantas to see if they d cover a ticket if I wrote a piece on the West Cork Literary Festival for their in-flight publication. They don t seem to want my story for their inflight mag as they don t go all the way to Ireland, but they re giving me a ticket to London anyway, which is a bit like winning another prize. For me this prize is very validating. I ve had other short stories broadcast by the BBC World Service and run in overseas journals and anthologies but never, regrettably, in Australia. I was beginning to feel my writing wasn t good enough to make it into publication in this country. Now I realise that different people, different publishing houses, different countries possibly look for different things. My mother came from Ireland, from County Cork. Going there to read at the festival feels to me a lovely way to remember her. The story isn t however set in Ireland. It s set in Macau. The anthology will be available from Fish ( ) from July. Honorary patrons of the Fish Short Story Prize ( php) are Roddy Doyle, Colum McCann and Dermot Healy. Microbats are in a feeding frenzy Microbats are currently in a feeding frenzy as they fatten up on insects to see them through the coming winter. If they have taken up residence in your roof or walls, autumn is a good time for a gentle bat eviction before they bunk down for their winter hibernation. Australia s Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife s Backyard Buddies program is all about getting more enjoyment from native animals in your backyard. It provides tips and advice on how to make your backyard a haven for our insect-controlling microbat mates. Microbats are much more common than you may think, says Ms Leonie Gale, CEO of the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, which runs the Backyard Buddies program. Right now, bats are eating as much as 40% of their own body weight in a single night or several hundred insects per hour. Many of our microbat species are hollow-dependent which means they live during the daylight hours inside the hollows of trees or branches. Competition from birds, possums and gliders, along with the clearing of many old trees, means that microbats may find the roof or walls of your home the perfect roosting place. The smallest microbat weighs only 3 grams about the same as a single serve sugar sachet or a single A4 sheet of paper. If these tiny bats cannot find a suitable hollow, they can slip into gaps as small as 5mm and snuggle down in your roof and walls. This is why artificial roost sites are important as they provide an alternative. So what do you do if you find resident microbats sharing your home? Fortunately for the little bats, there are humane ways to evict them and now is the time. Byron Shire microbats are fully protected which might raise the issue of offences and penalties if any are in fact harmed, explains Ms Gale. If done correctly, walls can become bat free and the little bats provided with an alternative roost site and retained in the backyard to go about their insect feeding work which is of great benefit to all of us. If you have microbats in your walls or roof, visit Bat Rescue Inc at for detailed information on how to remove them. If you have a photo of bats or any native plants or animals in your own backyard enter the Show off your buddies photo competition. Simply visit www. and click on the Show off your buddies link and register to upload your photos. The monthly winner receives a prize. 20 April 13, 2010 The Byron Shire Echo <echowebsection=articles>

21 Shearwater Recovery Group... Working towards a Sustainable Future Inspiring creativity in our community On March 18, 2010 the Shearwater School was placed in voluntary administration by the Board. In response to recent changes in the school s income and an accumulated debt load, the new Board, as the only viable route forward, sought assistance from an accredited Administrator PPB ( to restructure the Shearwater finances and to generate a path that will provide an accountable and sustainable future. This step was taken to ensure the future for students, teachers, parents and the community as a whole. The Shearwater Recovery Group acknowledges that this is painful and difficult for all involved. SHEARWATER students contribute to society with a sense of hope, joy and enthusiasm. Budget projections for the period after the administration phase produced by external specialist demonstrate that Shearwater can, with an achievable one off cash injection, be financially viable. The key funding bodies, including Federal and State Government, support Shearwater s strategy and have endorsed the plans and have committed to playing their part in funding the activities. Restructuring the debt load and building infrastructure and corporate governance into the new model will offer both sustainability and accountability for the future. A priority is to keep the teachers empowered to dedicate their energy and guidance to the 650 children at the school. The school is doing everything it can to deliver on this promise to all of the parents and every endeavour will be used to justify the trust our suppliers have placed in the school. The Recovery Group acknowledges and regrets that the school must share its burden with all that hold it dear. Please bear in mind all that Shearwater has given to the community over the last 17 years. The Recovery Group are overwhelmed and humbled by the heartwarming and generous support they have been offered in the last couple of weeks. We will strive to re-establish our school as an integral participant in the life and wellbeing of this region by providing a place of integrity, education and creativity in our community.

Vince will be recording for an up and coming album, with The Amazing Mr In VINCEable. Renee Searles was one of my greatest disappointments. She did my comedy course about six or seven years ago and she was astoundingly funny. As a teacher, you rarely come across such natural boundless talent, original, endearing, self deprecatory and very very human. Renee s comedy was delicate and tender and at times it felt like I was watching the human embodiment of a Leunig cartoon. But that was not to be Ms Searles calling. Being a creative and passionate spirit Renee found her way to the ukulele and in a few short years she s not only mastered the tiny instrument, she s crafted a body of work and released an album Lace Wings. Renee s music is original, passionate, gypsy enthused tales of the heart. This is one renaissance woman. So did Renee know she could sing? She shyly admits, I have always wanted to sing. But I have had no musical training. Nothing. I had a guitar that I carried around for 20 years and learnt two chords So why the ukulele? The uke is just so accessible and not confronting, it s not an intimidating instrument. I had bought a uke in Perth when I was about 30 (about 15 years ago) because I met this woman who was busking we became friends, and she took me to a music shop and I carried it around for years, every house I moved to it was hanging on the wall! Music had lain dormant in Renee her entire life. It just took one little instrument to cause a creative eruption. It s like I had something sitting inside of me and I just had to wait until it was ready to come out. I didn t know that at the time and I d say I was deeply frustrated by it. It was when I started to do the comedy, that I understood I was a performer I went to Mook s beginner s Uke class and I started learning cover songs, and within three or four months Paddy from Bay FM said why don t you write a song? And I said, that s a good idea, and I went home that night and wrote a song and I haven t stopped! I have been writing for more than 25 years, mainly journals, but it was like I A L L Y O U R C O A S T A L E N T E R T A I N M E N T didn t realise I was a writer all these things were there, and I didn t realise that they were valuable I didn t know they were worth anything! Renee is a self confessed romantic. Writing music is like a doorway into that inner world where all the dreams are and you can navigate the unknown unfathomable things that you can t put into words. A song might start off about love and romance and then it ends up being about you about the mystery of life and how fabulous it is and for me everything comes from a very feminine place and it s defintiely about being a woman and my connection to other women. Renee is coy about her album and her songwriting. I want the songs to be mysteries like little lands that you visit and you write a song about something and before you know it it s not about that mundane thing anymore, it s not about the bloke you fancied who dumped you it s grander and more mysterious that s what art is you take something ordinary and you investigate and dive in there and discover whole other countries and planets Lace Wings was recorded with Oles Krolikowski at the studios of Christian Pyle. It was wonderful meeting Oles because I feel like he understands the way I work and he brings such beauty to the music we share a great sense of humour and I feel so blessed, he came along at the beginning he listens beautifully; he s not afraid of that space. Christian is also a fabulous producer. Renee launches Lace Wings at the Drill Hall on Friday and will be joined on stage by her musical co-conspirators, Oles, Christian, Stuart Beaumont and Cye Wood. Robbie and Oles will be doing a support and apparently the night includes a very special once in a life time surprise. To check out Renee s music go to Tickets are $20 at the door or at Brunswick Health foods. Show starts at 7pm.

As of this week I will no longer be Mandy Nolan comedian. I request that all and sundry address me as Mandy Nolan Life Coach. My 15 years of mothering has helped me hone some very effective coaching techniques, and I figure if I can get my unmotivated teenager on a bus to Lismore at 7.15am every morning then I have the power to make people do things they don t want to. Live Music Underground Sound Zulya and the Children of the Underground bring their unique Russian gypsy sound to the Starcourt Theatre in Lismore on Tuesday April 13 and Wednesday 14. This internationally acclaimed outfit create melancholy, beauty and drama while weaving through a combination of musical styles. Zulya s vocals float effortlessly above an adventurous musical I have four children to three different blokes, and frankly, I thought commitment was a band encouraging me to Ride Sally ride, so, I did. Now she s pregnant. I am overweight. I despise exercise. I make up excuses about why I can t go. Fit people bore me. I spend too much money on clothes. I don t open bills. I won t pay anything unless I get a disconnection notice. I loathe budgeting. I won t use self service petrol pumps. I hate gardening. I m a feminist but I still wait for a man to put my bin out. I sulk about doing the dishes. I feel that my life would be better if I owned expensive shoes. At 42 I have no savings, no super and I still live in a rented house. I once went seven years without lodging a tax return. I drive too fast. I back into things. I use parking tickets as toilet paper. I don t compost. I only eat hormone filled chicken because it s a cheap way to get breast augmentation. I think meditation is just another way of saying I have no ideas. When I have sex with my partner I fantasise that I m someone else. With these very impressive personal attributes, it dawned on me backdrop that features brass arrangements; Tom Waits inspired tunes and mallet percussion, plus newer sounds courtesy of percussion loops, manipulated piano tunes and hurdy-gurdy. The end result sees Zulya breaking new ground on an album that is nothing short of artistic triumph. 8pm. The Divine Ms Hunt Lisa Hunt brings her shining light to the Beach Hotel on Sunday afternoon. There is truly no more glorious experience then a Sunday beer with Ms Hunt. Lisa serves up soul exactly how its meant to be, rich, raw, passionate and punchy. Be there from 4pm. that I am exactly the right sort of person for life coaching. I m unqualified, opinionated and overbearing. I was born to think for other people. I ve read The Echo classies we ve got to move on from this peace loving tree hugging vegetarian path of love elitism we call personal development. I am advocating a whole new school of spiritual life coaching. I call it Realistic Coaching. It starts with some basic affirmations like NO YOU RE NOT GOOD ENOUGH. IN FACT YOU RE AN IDIOT And as you suspected, when it comes to receiving love I will be ringing them with the message, forget it, GIVE UP, YOU ARE NOT WORTHY. I ll be encouraging people not to follow their dreams. Just because you want to be an artist, doesn t mean it s a viable pursuit. Buy a paint brush, take up a hobby, but don t give up your day job. Someone has to work at the fruit shop, clean toilets, and make coffee. For every Leonardo da Vinci there s a million Homer Simpsons. Ironically, it s Homer who touches our hearts, I reckon Da Vinci would have been an overachieving wanker anyway, kind of like a smug 15th Century version of Richard Branson. Sara & Susanna at the Court House A common experience of the challenges of staying inspired and creative while raising families and managing individual careers has led to a very unique and exciting collaboration: Sara Tindley and Susanna Carman. The two are very different but find the experience of singing and sharing a stage deeply satisfying. The girls team up to present their show In the Round at the Court House in Mullumbimby on Friday. Broadfoot Double There are two chances to catch Broadfoot this weekend, Friday at the Dunoon Sports Club from Some of you will remember the bleary eyed cult members of Course of Miracles, I m thinking of running a similar program called The Curse of Disappointment. We celebrate the constant random erosion of faith through tiny daily disappointments and embrace the only reliable constant: our eternal ordinariness. Instead of learning to let go, we put on the tracksuit and let ourselves go. True liberation only comes once the spirit is broken, and I reckon, with some of my techniques, I could break your spirit in a few days. The Queen of unconditional love, Amma, the super loving hugging guru who was fed biscuits by a cow has just scooted through, and I am considering elevating my life coaching to a similar guru-like status. I m up for the whole guru racket. I will be an Aussie version of the Mother, so I ll be offering conditional love, a clip round the ear and a cold kiss on the cheek. My deep spiritual advice: get over yourself. You re a nobody. Like the rest of us.

27 CinemaReviews Date Night Do you remember the episode of Seinfeld in which Jerry and George arrive at an airport and, for a lark, take the chauffeur-driven limo that is awaiting a passenger by the name of O Brien? That idea is shamelessly plagiarised (or appropriated ) to kick start this occasionally amusing but mostly ham-fisted, productionline dross. In the TV show (has Go! broken the world record for repeating it to the point where even rusted-on fans have had enough?), Jerry and George get mixed up with a bunch of Ayrian supremacists as a result of their misadventure. Here we have Claire and Phil Foster, a New Jersey Mom and Dad, out on the town attempting to inject some zing into a marriage that is in the doldrums (and yes, we get the mandatory joke about how many times a week they do it ). At an exclusive Manhattan eatery, they put their hands up and pretend to be the Tripplehorns, thus pinching a table reserved for some shady characters and inadvertently falling foul of the Mob and a pair of homicidal but bungling NYPD cops who are in the pocket of the corrupt DA. The story, if not original, still has loads of potential, but the hare-brained plotting, which sees Phil and Claire jumping from the frying pan into the fire at every turn, kills that potential stone dead. It is what used to be called madcap humour, meaning that it is also ridiculously implausible, and how low it might have sunk without the effortless comic talents of Tina Fey and Steve Carell is anybody s guess. Admittedly, there are some beaut set pieces the spoof of two A-listers bullying the restaurant receptionist (Fey Date Night Welcome in trans-continental lorries that are about to enter the UK via the Channel tunnel. To be re-united with his girlfriend Mina (Derya Ayverdi), already with her family in London, Bilal, having trekked fourthousand miles to get this far, strikes upon the idea of swimming the last leg of his epic journey the white cliffs of Dover are tantalizingly in view. At the local pool he meets Simon (Vincent Lindon), a former champion who is now a swimming instructor. Coping poorly with rejection himself after splitting with his wife Marion (Audrey Dana), Simon takes Bilal under his wing and, during his tutelage of the young man, the two form a bond of wary friendship. For the intimacy that grows between them, Simon is liable to be charged with the offence of giving comfort to an illegal the film has helped bring about amendments to that Draconian law but he understands the ways of the heart and that Bilal must be with Mina. Simon s is the character that will evolve most and craggy-faced, smokyvoiced Lindon is terrific in the part. Firat Ayverdi looks perfect as the single-minded Bilal and his performance is touching for its ingenuousness, whilst his sister Derya is captivating as Mina. The closing shot of a foreigner, Cristiano Ronaldo, scoring for Manchester United, the club of Bilal s aspirations, is, like the movie s title, heavily loaded in its symbolism but affecting nonetheless for its exposure of the cruel double standards by which an outsider s worth is assessed. With classy, uncomplicated cinematography and a piano score that only occasionally slips from tenderness to moroseness, this is one you shouldn t miss. Check it out at Mullum Flicks. ~ John Campbell is a brilliant mimic), and Phil and Claire s pole dancing are classic, but did we really need a screaming, screeching, excruciating car chase? A more appealing alternative for director Shawn Levy (who should have played to his strengths and concentrated on A Night At The Museum 3) would have been to turn the project into a gore fest and have the bad guys hack up the Fosters revolting children. The credits roll with a collection of out-takes, all featuring Steve and Tina putting the crew in stitches you never see supporting actors bloopers, perhaps because they are not so ebulliently received by the sycophants on set. Among those credits is one for Mark Wahlberg s costumer, an irony more subtle than anything that preceded it, for Wahlberg does every one of his scenes shirtless and in a pair of black trackies. ~ John Campbell FULLY AIR-CONDITIONED EVERY WED ALL SEATS ALL SESSIONS $8 ONLY BALLINA FAIR ADMISSION PRICES CINEMAS Adults $11 Students/Conc. $9 Children $8 THURS 15TH TO WED 21ST APRIL EVERY WEDNESDAY ALL SEATS ALL SESSIONS $8 ONLY ATM NOW AVAILABLE CLASH OF THURS 15 HOW TO TRAIN THE TITANS TO WED 21 YOUR DRAGON 3D 9.40am THURS 15 3D 3.30pm TO WED 21 THURS pm 10.00am TO WED pm 1.55pm 11.55am 5.45pm 7.30pm DATE NIGHT NOTE: NO 5.45PM 9.25pm SESSION SAT & SUN $3 SURCHARGE $3 SURCHARGE ALICE IN FINAL 7 DAYS THURS 15 TO WED am 3.05pm 5.20pm NANNY MCPHEE AND THE BIG BANG SHE S OUT OF MY LEAGUE FINAL 7 DAYS THURS 15 TO WED pm 5.00pm 8.35pm WONDERLAND2D THURS 15 TO WED am ALICE IN WONDERLAND3D 3.45pm $3 SURCHARGE LATEST IN HI-TECH MOVIE PRESENTATION Cr Kerr & Fox Streets ADMINISTRATION: Ph MOVIELINE: Ph WEBSITES: THURS 15 TO WED am 1.35pm 7.15pm THE LAST SONG GOING VERTICAL SATURDAY 17TH SUNDAY 18TH 5.45pm Welcome Absurd though it may sound, it s possibly more satisfying to discount the political, social and moral issues that underpin this film and regard it primarily as a beautiful love story. Bilal (Firat Ayverdi), a stateless Iraqi Kurd hoping to reach England, is exactly the type of individual whom Western liberals, living privileged lives far from the madding crowd, need to see as an innocent at the mercy of xenophobic and racist officialdom it helps to prop up our self-righteousness. Because he reduces (or elevates?) it to the intensely personal, French director Phillip Lioret s approach to the confronting problem of the new diaspora of the world s poor and downtrodden is sympathetic but simplistic. He has set his drama in wintry Calais, where scores of young men from Africa and the Middle East are daily rounded up attempting to stow away The Home of Quality Cinema THURSDAY APRIL 15 to WEDNESDAY APRIL 21 BYRON BAY 108 JONSON STREET ONLINE BOOKINGS NOW AVAILABLE THE BOOK OF ELI (MA15+) DATE NIGHT (M) KICKASS (MA15+) A SINGLE MAN (M) CLASH OF THE TITANS(M) NANNY MCPHEE AND THE BIG BANG (G) METROPOLITAN OPERA: HAMLET GOING VERTICAL (M) SPECIAL EVENTS THE METROPOLITAN OPERA presents Thomas Captured LIVE in High Definition SAT APRIL 17, SUN 18, THURS 22 TIX ON SALE NOW OPENING THIS WEEK Denzel Washington Gary Oldman Some will kill to have it.

28 Interview gina yashere MUSICA VIVA LISMORE FRIDAY 23 APRIL 7:30pm Byron Community Centre TICKETS: Adult $30, Concession $25, Student $15 FROM: Lismore Music, Magellan St, Lismore ph: ; La Boutique, River St, Ballina; Duck Creek Emporium, Alstonville Plaza; Byron Community Centre & at the door Gina Yashere, the Nigerian born, UK raised US comedic sensation hits Aussie soil next week, with one very special show (her only regional on her entire tour) at the Byron Services Club. Seven caught up with Gina for a quick chat. How does your comedy reflect your inner journey? How much of what is really going on Piano Hear the Byron Steinway grand piano in all its glory as this internationally acclaimed pianist plays a selection from Mozart, Chopin & Schumann. for you is processed into material? Pretty much everything that happens to me that I think I can make funny goes in the show. I mean, who makes up jokes about gettin malaria and havin colonic irrigations? How do you maintain your passion for performance what s your secret to keeping it fresh? Lot s of travel, so I don t get bored, and I recommend moving to another country and starting again from the bottom, to get your mojo back! (I did that moving to the US.) As a comic myself I was always surprised by how men get mobbed by women after gigs but all the female comedians tend to go home alone do you think being a comedian and being a woman is intimidating for one s male suitors? Hell yes! Men think you ll talk about them in your act, if they re bad, and they re right! Are funny women sexy? I don t think I m sexy, that s why I opted to be funny, but you can be both. I just ain t. Have you always had a lot to say? What kind of kid were you? I was mouthy, naughty, loud, a show off perfect lab-made comedian. How much of that kid that was you takes the stage every night? A hundred per cent of it. Still a big showoff Are you a goal setter or a just go with the flow kind of girl? When I started doing comedy, I just went with the flow, and just enjoyed it for what it was. Then I discovered how much money you could make, and my competitive streak kicked in, and I started setting career goals, but we re in showbiz. It s not like after a certain number of years, you ll get that promotion. We re not accountants. It s down to tenacity, luck, hard work, luck, hard work and more luck! I m just back enjoying myself again, and more seems to be happening now I ve just relaxed. What are the challenges that you have to face on a daily basis? People thinking all black comics talk about is sex ( I don t), race (just a little), and as a woman all I talk about is boyfriends (oh, please ) and my periods (oh for God s sake). As a comedian do you still see areas in your work that you want to conquer, or change or refine? I m always wanting to change and refine and improve, if you don t, then you are no longer growing. What s your perfect audience? Big small, old young, black white, women, men? One that laughs long and loud! Complete this sentence in the next ten years Gina Yashere will be Rich, very rich! Gina Yashere appears with Joel Salom at the Byron Services Club Pandanus Lounge on Monday with me, Mandy Nolan as MC at 8pm. Tix are $20/25 and can be bought directly at the club or booked on Tix at the door if any left. BEATS NBOPS JACKIE ONASSID Loonaloop BUDDHA BAR SATURDAY Loonaloop will be performing their brand new tracks from their Skipping Stones album released last year. Sara Beatty on violin, Alex Muniz on percussion and Mikey Tossetto on didgeridoo join Andy Byrnes and Shiney Lefai: When we were touring in Amsterdam, our bass player fell in love, got married and stayed there. We are exchanging him for a percussionist this tour, which means the bass will be part of the programming and we have that extra tribal magic groove that percussion adds. Q: What would you say is your signature sound? A: Tribal/gypsy electronic? There s one attempt if anyone else would like to have a go at quoting what Loonaloop s signature sound is, the winning tag gets a copy of our new CD. Q: How do you guys come up with new tracks, any funny habits in the studio? A: As a drummer and percussionist Andy comes from a rhythmic technical programming angle and writes a lot around beats and feels that he likes. As for me I am an undisciplined brat that just does what ever she feels like, follows it and sees where it ends up I call it cosmic fishing. We usually start tracks separately and then collaborate; our ideas seem to complement each other. We are very honest and sometimes fight over directions and ideas plenty of creative sparks! We are looking for people to do remixes of our tracks, if anyone is inspired? Q: How is the digital age going for you? A: Our music is available on itunes and through our website It has been a brilliant advantage to us. We haven t utilised the marketing side of selling online to its real potential yet. We have found people in some countries selling our albums for download without permission. Live shows are still our best platform for CD sales. Another positive side of the digi age for us is, being an international act, promoting ourselves within the community, or in other cities or countries has become the same deal, you just go on line and find the networks, promoters, radio stations, street mags etc and send off your material. The digital age works in many ways for us. Loonaloop plays an early show in the beer garden at the Buddha Bar this Saturday starting 8pm and it s free!

32 stars WITH LILITH ARIES: The buzzword for your annual new moon in Aries is new: new friends, new path, new ways of operating, new ideas, new projects, new attitude of gratitude so focus clearly, clarify and then write down five things you most dearly want to achieve this year. TAURUS: If you ve been wondering where the money went and who hasn t, this week s optimistic new moon inspires a bolder, more creative approach to the dollar-making department, with late week moon in your sign adding plenty of energy for putting these ideas into action. GEMINI: The stars are on your side right now so follow your business instincts because your articulate, convincing, dollars and cents sense will make any pitch hard to resist. Mercury s misbehaving though, so keep checking that you haven t overlooked or missed anything important. Change rules the day here on the earth plane, and exuberant midweek Aries new moon chants the mantra: change is exciting, it makes me feel alive CANCER: In an indulgent, homey, private kind of mood just wanting to do what brings you the most pleasure? Sorry, but enthusiastic midweek moon strikes sparks in your career zone which definitely encourage taking action and you are one of the zodiac s cardinal movers and shakers. LEO: Objectivity s taking a holiday, but don t let that drive you to drink, angst, or round the bend. If blame, accusation and criticism are uppermost in what you want to convey this week, try googling nonviolent communication websites for more gracious ways of saying it. VIRGO: This week calls for more liveliness and variety in your daily routines, a change being as good as a holiday. Speaking of which, how about a vacation, a little trip away? This week s astral energies suggest putting on your practical hat and making it happen. CHESS by Ian Rogers Australia s biggest and best Grand Prix tournament, the O2C Doeberl Cup, concluded this week with victory for the top seed, China s Li Chao. The 48th edition of Canberra s annual Easter tournament established a series of records, with 250 players, among them 10 Grandmasters, competing in four divisions. Li looked to be a class above the other players in the tournament, racing to 6.5/7 on the back of a series of long and difficult endgame victories and then coasting to the title with two short draws. Australia s George Xie (pictured left) finished just half a point behind Li and was rewarded with his third and final Grandmaster norm. Xie now needs to raise his world ranking by just 10 points to become the fifth Grandmaster in Australia s history. Sydney s Xie, who is studying to become an Anglican missionary, started the Doeberl Cup very slowly, drawing with lowly ranked Paul Broekhuisje in the first round, but then he hit form, unleashing a series of sparkling attacks against weak and strong opponents alike. (Xie s crushing defeat of second seed and Australia s number one Zhao Zong Yuan can be seen below.) Going into the final round Xie faced an almost impossible task, beating the solid Indian Grandmaster Abhijit Kunte with the black pieces. Xie s nervous Play at Byron Services Club, Mon 7-10pm LIBRA: As midweek new moon activates your cardinal, takecharge side, you might find yourself wanting solo time and thinking me instead of we and us. The planet Chiron s about to initiate some deep healing in the life of Librans, so just relax and it won t hurt a bit. SCORPIO: This week wants you walking the fine line between firm and determined on one hand, closed and stubborn on the other. Be prepared to say sorry if you ve caused upset and mean it. The advice for fellow fixed sign Leo also applies. SAGITTARIUS: This week speaks its mind, though you mightn t like everything it has to say about the credibility gap between your actual life and your splendid unused potential. Though to be fair, that s because a whole new Sagittarian gestalt is currently in pre-production. efforts to unbalance the game rebounded badly and when the first time control was reached on move 40, Xie s winning chances were zero. Kunte could force a draw by perpetual check or play for a win in a number of ways. However now Xie enjoyed an incredible stroke of luck. After thinking for five minutes, Kunte played a safe move which lost his queen and the game immediately. Xie emerged from the tournament hall grinning broadly, knowing that further religious study was clearly unnecessary: God was already smiling on him!

If you feel you re doing lots and achieving little, it s because this is a time for reassessment and rebuilding rather than results. AQUARIUS: Dynamic midweek new moon brings a breakthrough, a significant shedding of your old self for this year s new, improved model to power you through any periods of doubt about your ideas or suggestions being appreciated, accepted and acted on this week. PISCES: While this is an out and about week, it s still highly advisable to avoid strife, arguments, volatile situations or controlling people wanting to wrangle. And if others start communicating like flame throwers, just remember the cooler you keep, the sweeter your week. Ra ? Natural but also fatal. After 13.Rd1!

The elixier of the blackcurrant god Shred Potomac Hercule Balgan led me into his cellar and sat me down at a simple deal table among his impressive racks of wines and liqueurs. It was not something you would expect to find beneath his simple house in Marvell Street, despite the ornate flourishes the poet Marvell was sometimes given to. From the racks he drew a bottle of Védrenne s crème de cassis, rich as blood in colour, and poured a soupçon into two glass tumblers. We toasted each other s health; the liqueur filled my throat with its warm presence. I was drawn to crème de cassis because of my namesake, Balgan began. As you know, Agatha Christie s little detective was very fond of it. It is made of blackcurrants crushed into refined alcohol and then charged up with sugar. It tastes in a way of cough syrup, I ventured, but much nicer once you get the full effect. Balgan scowled at my description, but continued: Much nicer for your digestion, too. As you know, the French favour kir, made with crème de cassis and white wine, as an apéritif. There are all sorts of spurious legends, of course is not spurious legends a tautology? about it being created by an inspired monk in a medieval abbey, but it was simply a business innovation in the Burgundy region in the 1840s. Its precursor, though, ratafia de cassis, was something of a peasant concoction dating back to the 17th century and flavoured with bitter almonds, or peach or cherry kernels. The reason for the change to blackcurrants seems straightforward: all these kernels contain dangerous levels of hydrogen cyanide. Perhaps it is Christie s little joke to make the safer version a favourite of her Poirot. If you insist in making ratafia, however, you can use instead fresh fruit and herbs. Take a bottle of red white is for philistines a quarter of a cup of vodka, a cup of cut-up fruits, some herbs, and a quarter cup of sugar. Mix together in a large jar and refrigerate for three to four weeks, then strain into a clean wine bottle and cork or cap it tightly. Keep refrigerated. I don t know why you would bother, though crème de cassis is a far superior product. I had not insisted on making ratafia, or anything of that sort, but Balgan was carried away by his own eloquence. What of the tale of the blackcurrant god the villagers used to leave offerings to in East Anglia? I asked. Nothing to do with crème de cassis, he replied dismissively. That seemed the end of that line of inquiry. Nevertheless Balgan happily poured me another libation and we each inwardly toasted our own private gods before I returned to the quotidian of Marvell Street.

The news recently that Spain s ground-breaking restaurant El Bulli is to close in 2012 left me unmoved. Despite every single review, remark and critique of the place being fulsomely glowing, I never wanted to go. When I think about eating in Spain I think of calamari and rosé consumed on rocks overlooking ocean at dusk, a memory which gives pleasure still. Foams, soils, dusts the whole molecular movement whereby food stops being food and is reinvented as a series of sensory challenges and scientific experiments may indeed be reshaping the way we think about cooking and eating, may be leading us toward exciting new flavour- and texturecombinations and techniques one day taken for granted. Progress, after all, is inevitable in all forms and should not be stubbornly resisted out of sentimentality. There I was on Easter Day sitting in a strip of a Spanish restaurant in gaudy old Surfers Paradise, thinking these thoughts, but mostly conscious of being in precisely the sort of eating establishment I love best. Reluctant to wander too far from our respectable hotel, mellowed and a little heady after sunset drinks at the dizzying top of the Q1 building where a bald guitarist reinterpreted 80 s hits in the voice of a castrato, or at least an angel, we found ourselves part of a pulsating neon-lit surge of Easter carousers. Restaurant after restaurant gaped cavernously at us the couple walking too quickly, too uneasily past each fizzing and frothing out the shrieks of people who may have started celebrating Easter with morning schooners in a club. Malay, Italian pizza, Chinese aeafood, Indonesian, Mexican: enormous rooms spilling out onto the pavement, garishly lit, families at endlessly long tables, waiters rushing harriedly, sirens in the distance. I had put my foot down regarding the all-you-can-eat buffet at our hotel; had even extravagantly suggested we order room service-something a $30 house burger or a cheese plate curled up with a DVD would have suited me beautifully. And because we could not agree here we were striding through the masses in the frail hope that somewhere would call out to us and lure us in. Suddenly, somewhere did. A simple sign saying La Paella, a narrow space into which we gratefully escaped, tables mostly occupied but oh the joy of one which was not, and an elderly waiter smiling his way towards us. We sat by the wall from whence I had the view of the bar, a tiny corner space with hanging glasses and a clutter of bottles. Seating close together induced cosiness rather than claustrophobia. Musical instruments and predictable posters bullfights, Gaudi adorned the walls; the menu a list of old-fashioned Spanish dishes. There seemed only the one courteous old Spanish waiter somehow managing the entire floor on his own and yet our requests were met instantly. Olives and warm bread to fill the space of a 20-odd minute wait for our zarzuela, Catalan seafood stew. A glass of faintly effervescent rosado translucent strawberry red to help slide down the bottomless bowl of garlicky olives too many to finish. And then our stew: a wide shallow vessel placed with ceremony on the upper level of a two-tiered stand, empty bowl for shells beneath. A rich scarlet bath of bobbing seafood: clams and mussels, fat prawns and calamari, white fish chunks and paprika, bread dunked in and shells slurped. It was lovely; it held us briefly in its grip but long enough for me to have one of those rare moments of forgetting where I was, of removing me quite completely from where I was. So that when we re-entered the voluble, hectic tawdriness of it all the shrill street s cacophony, the hooting hordes that feeling carried us safely and sweetly back to our respectable hotel.

37 Sport Splashing about Gosford in a frenzy NS14 sailors from left to right the in a frenzy 5th with 3rd, 4th place getters on Brisbane Waters at Gosford with the rest of the fleet behind. Photo David Johnson The Gosford Sailing Club ran a great series for the 72 entrants in the 46th annual State Championships for NS14 sailing dinghies. Moderate south easterly winds allowed all six heats to run, over the four Easter holidays. There were three boats from the Richmond River club in Ballina, including local sailor Duncan Dey from Main Arm, who sailed craft 1945 in a frenzy with a new crew, his nephew Tim from Newcastle. City boats dipped out, the series was won convincingly by Robert Fish and Cassie Cause from Taree. The second place winners were from Teralba on Lake Macquarie and third from Queens Lake. Duncan and Tim claimed fifth place overall, missing out by only half a point on fourth and 1.5 points on third. Point scoring is similar to a golf tournament: the lowest score wins with one point awarded per boat ahead of you in each race. A half point involves a tie when crossing the finish line. Competition was close in all heats. Other Ballina club boats included Bob Engwirda and Zac Heuchmer, both of Ballina, who finished 32nd and Chris and Nick Larsen of Tugun came in 55th. Duncan also picked up his favourite award: best Veteran Skipper. Duncan, who was very chuffed with his award, commented that it pays to be over 50. The Ballina boats will now head back to local waters for the finish to the season. The Richmond River club runs training sessions twice a year. Check richmondriver. next season for dates. Footy can be a pain in the neck (and back and shoulders) Footy s back and no matter which code you subscribe to the those in the know are forecasting a surge in sports-related injuries over coming weeks. According to the Chiropractors Association of Australia (CAA) spokesperson, sports chiropractor Dr Peter Garbutt, Aussie Rules tops the injury list with rugby, soccer and netball also taking a toll on players during the pre-season and early rounds. Hamstring injuries are most common at this time of the year, especially in the faster running sports such as soccer, rugby, AFL and hockey, as weekend warriors return after the off-season break, says Dr Garbutt. Back problems are also a major issue and can be intertwined with hamstring injuries, whereby one injury can trigger the other. Footballers in particular, appear to be more susceptible to low back pain. A study published last year by Dr Garbutt and colleagues found that footballers in Australia have significantly more severe and frequent low back pain compared with non-athletes and this escalates with the level of competition. Low back pain is the most common injury reported in elite soccer and back injuries have the highest rate of recurrence for all injuries in elite rugby players. Shoulder injuries are also rife amongst rugby league players. In Aussie Rules the injury toll is high, even amongst the amateurs with 27 per cent reporting long term or recurrent back problems. To minimise the injury risk Dr Garbutt recommends a holistic approach to getting ready for the game. This includes regular maintenance, good nutrition, appropriate warm up and warm down protocols including stretching after a game, being prepared with a proper training regime, easing back into exercise after a break and hydration on the field. Dr Garbutt also recommends that anyone returning to sport after a break consider a visit to their local chiropractor to tune up their body and make sure it is ready to go for the season. No matter what sport you play, you will be placing your body under structural stress, he warned. There are benefits to be had in ensuring your body has a regular tune up and is ready to perform at its peak in the same way that you would regularly book your car in for a service. and the head Recent studies have also shown that there may be a direct link between sports injuries and dementia. Concussion is not an uncommon sport injury and surveyed players who have had concussions report more problems with memory, concentration, speech impediments, headaches and other neurological problems than those who had not. Neurologists say once a person suffers a concussion, he is as much as four times more likely to sustain a second one. An American woman, Dr. Eleanor Perfetto has filed a claim on behalf of her husband, Ralph Wenzel, contending that his dementia at 67 is related to his career as an NFL lineman from 1966 to For more information about sports injuries and how they can be prevented, visit the New South Wales Sporting Injuries Committee s web site: www.

Minister for Ports and Waterways, Paul McLeay, said NSW Maritime checked 357 vessels on waterways from Foster to Tweed Heads during the campaign. The Easter long weekend marks the close of the boating season and is also one of the busiest periods of the season, he said. Tragically, over the weekend two competitors in the Taree Easter Classic power boat races died in separate incidents during the races. The incidents are being investigated by Police with assistance from NSW Maritime. Mr McLeay said on-the-spot fines and formal warnings were issued to 57 skippers on the North Coast, most for missing safety equipment. I congratulate the 84 per cent of boaters who are complying with safety rules, though this compliance rate can be improved, Mr McLeay said. Convenor of the Country Labor Parliamentary Group, Christine Robertson said Boating Safety Officers spoke to boaters about the importance of travelling at safe speeds and complying with speed restrictions. Boating Safety Officers patrol the waterways across the year, so go over and ask them anything you re not sure about, they re there to give information and keep everyone safe, Ms Robertson said. Mr McLeay said of the total fines and warnings issued over the long weekend, the single biggest category was failing to have the required safety equipment such as lifejackets, paddles, oars, buckets and fire extinguishers on board. Don t wait for a fine to become educated about boating safety. You re the skipper, you re responsible, make sure you re informed, said Mr McLeay.

Get your Certifi cate and Licence at North Coast TAFE inside: Gold Coast eco haven named world s greenest Properties in focus pages 53 & 55 Business Directory page 59 Open Houses, Auctions & New Listings page 59 The Great Australian Dream, which has been growing in size for decades, will come under pressure from several areas to become smaller, more sustainable and affordable, says Archicentre, the building advisory service of the Australian Institute of Architects. Angus Kell, ACT and NSW State Manager of Archicentre, said the population debate would provide a major focus on the lack of affordable housing, land and the need to rethink the size and design of Australian homes given the current low level of housing affordability. The financial stress of people over committing on their housing purchases has seen 25,000 home buyers default on their loans in the past twelve months, according to the Reserve Bank statistics. Mr Kell said while the debate may focus on smaller, well designed homes where every Track seven kilometres west from the bright lights of the Gold Coast and you hit a low-lying patch of lush green hinterland where a quiet revolution in urban living is taking shape. The dozen or so completed homes and 20-odd construction sites in Currumbin Ecovillage may not look revolutionary nestled against 110 hectares of native bush and gurgling creeks. But they are the first wave of houses in a residential community that was named the world s best environmental development at the real-estate industry s equivalent of the Olympic Games. The Ecovillage beat more than 100 international commercial and residential developments to claim the International Real Estate Federation s highest award, the Prix d Excellence. It s a dream come true because we originally set out to create a benchmark project to role model sustainability and inspire the world, founder Chris Walton said. Mr Walton s dream first came to him and partner Kerry Shepherd space is treated as a premium for practical use and to lower the cost of heating and cooling given rising power and water costs, the Generation Y factor, where children unable to afford moving out to rent or buy their own property, will see an increasing trend for bigger Zone Homes. Zone Homes, where two residences are built under the same roof, can have a central shared wall with pre-fitted structures that house doorways which can link the two zones into a large home or can be closed off to make two separate residences. Such a design will allow couples to rent out part of the home to help pay off their mortgage and then convert the home into a larger home when the family grows, and convert back to a rental situation to create a cash flow in retirement. Currently in many inner and middle ring THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN DREAM UNDER PRESSURE The beautiful home above is a multi-award winning, contemporary, energy efficient building. This home was awarded as Australia s Greenest Building of the Year by the HIA Greensmart program. Photo Zenstick Photography Brisbane suburbs we have large family homes with one resident, these homes could be retro-fitted to become zone homes. Mr Kell said the changes in weather patterns with extreme storms could see a return of the original eaves which protect the home from flooding in the roof, shade windows, increase water harvesting and the re-thinking of specifications for the size of guttering on new domestic or renovated homes to cope with excessive and more common heavy bursts of rain. Current interest rate rises we believe will also provide an increasing trend for people to renovate existing homes to avoid up to $50,000 in government fees and other charges to move. Instead this money will be put into new kitchens, bathrooms, alfresco dining rooms or landscaping projects.

Intown home and office This excellent 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with spacious open plan living areas was designed with aspect and crossflow in mind. A large entertaining patio nestles into the peaceful backyard. The second lounge, 3 bedrooms and bathroom are all on one side of the house allowing for stress-free family living. The gas kitchen is perfect for those who love to cook with plenty of room to move. A large office/5th bedroom, storage, carparking for 4/5 cars and generous 450L solar hot water system round out this excellent investment. The 810m² property borders reserve and is only minutes from Byron CBD and a very short walk from beach, high school, rugby oval and golf. The property is currently rented at $650pw. Looking for offers over $735,000. For info call Sue on Despite their location in subtropical south-east Queensland, not one of the houses is air-conditioned, each is solar-powered and the entire community is water self-sufficient. It took Mr Walton and Ms Shepherd eight years of research and planning to have their 147-lot development approved by the local council. And when the project was approved in 2003, Currumbin Ecovillage turned the residential development paradigm on its head. Your basic two-acre [.8 hectares] subdivision under conventional planning is made up of 80 per cent freehold residential and 20 per cent open space, Ecovillage spokesman Martin Jackson said. We did the complete opposite of that and have 20 per cent residential and 80 per cent open space. Now nearing the end of the three land releases, green-minded families can still be a part of Ecovillage, although membership comes at a price. The cheapest block of land now sells for $450,000. Mr Jackson said residents had built houses for anywhere between $150,000 and $650,000. When we started selling [in 2005] we sold below market value to ensure we had a range of socioeconomic backgrounds in the community, Mr Jackson said.

The state government says it intends to review its Far North Coast Regional Strategy, after planning minister Tony Kelly first announced expected increases in population based upon ABS projections. This sounds to us like a good excuse to ramp up development and rezone new land as residential without bothering to involve local councils. Perhaps this is the inside information Woolworths had. Speaking of rezoning, Council has plans on exhibition for rezoning six parcels of land in Bangalow from general rural and agriculture to 2(a) residential. The expected yield is around 150 dwellings. Bangalow residents can talk to Council staff about it at Heritage Park outside the post office from 3pm to 5.30pm on Thursday April 22. It is encouraging to see the results of Husqvarna s 2010 Global Garden Report. In Australia, the top trends included kitchen gardening, organic growing and re-creating wilderness. The report analysed the thoughts of garden bloggers, who are obviously into resilience and survival. Anti-nuke protesters awarded $700,000 for feral treatment, read the SMH headline last Friday. In a victory for civil rights, Justice Timothy Anderson in the South Australian Supreme Court awarded ten protesters a total of $700,000 in damages from the SA government. At a demo at the Beverley Uranium mine almost ten years ago, police officers beat protesters, sprayed them with capsicum and locked them in a shipping container for hours without food or water. Justice Anderson also took issue with then Deputy Premier Kevin Foley calling protesters a bunch of ferals. Enrol to Vote Week (ETVW) 2010 will run from May 17 to 23 with the aim of enrolling thousands of secondary school students so they are ready to vote at the federal election that could be called this year. Secondary schools can register for this year s ETVW by visiting the ETVW website www. If you re over 18 and you don t vote, don t whinge when you get the government you didn t want.
