Ode to an Octopus
upon a time a group of apes came down from the trees and began to walk
upon the ground on two legs. We named them homo erectus -
the upright ape (erectus: upright). In the spans of evolution,
homo erectus became extinct. We named ourselves homo
sapiens – the wise ape (sapiens, sapientis: wise,
The octopus would come into the shallows,
gracefully gliding beneath silent reflections. It would shelter
under the pontoon in cool dark shadows. One day it was wounded by
a spear gun and brought up out of the water to be proudly displayed to
a group of adults. It was placed in a shallow bucket of water and
left out on a jetty, beneath a clear blue sky and golden summer
sun. A small white cloud drifted by, puffed by a gentle breeze.
the afternoon the adults continued to party. To the sounds of
laughter, shouting, shrieking, sneering and cackling, afternoon turned
into evening with a glowing sunset.
In the cool dark of the
night, moonlight and clear bright stars, the octopus was thrown back
into the water, near the pontoon. Dead.
Not bad for homo sapiens, not bad at all.

Letters to the Editor
Can't See the Trees for the
the Vet's extended response to my note asking people not to remove
firewood from Elizabeth Pk. addressed numerous issues, only some of
which related to the question at hand.
I have no intention of
addressing all his points for fear of burying casual readers in detail
& scientific references, but just a couple...
Reduction Burning: (Ray, a backburn is a last minute emergency
procedure used when a wildfire is thundering down the hill towards your
house in an attempt to burn the fuel between you and the fire, an H.R.
Burn is different.) The Rural Fire Service is given the power &
responsibility to limit the fire danger on S.I. With regard to bushland
reserves, in consultation with ecologists, (another of their
responsibilities), they consider it is desirable to conduct burns,
wherever possible, to reduce fuel, as this gives a long-term
sustainable result for, in this case, Spotted Gum Forest.
fire was precluded from E.P., it would end up as a rainforest in a
couple of hundred years. I don't dislike rainforests, but S.I. evolved
as a Schlerophyll Forest and it seems appropriate to retain that
The assertion that "very few native plants
are tolerant of fire" is frankly wrong. Many species such as Banksia,
Hakea, Acacia and various native peas require it, and struggle to
regenerate without it. Many Eucs. also need a bare ash bed to be able
to compete with groundcovers and get a flush of seedlings germinated
My basic appeal in writing initially was to
implore all residents who value having a bushland reserve such as
Elizabeth Park close to them, to look after it. No, it's not as
pristine as Kuringgai Chase N.P. We damage it by dumping our rubbish
and weeds around it's edges, allowing our dogs and cats to prowl
through it, but it is still a valuable asset for numerous reasons.
People using it as a free source of firewood is just too rude a way for
us to ensure it's destruction.
(Anyone sighting firewood thieves can feel free to contact me by phone
in complete confidence.)
Re: Removal of timber from bushland reserves
to see the discussion get so personal, but like it or not removal of
timber is illegal. Such rules or not confined to Scotland Island. These
sorts of restrictions are common worldwide in national parks and
reserves and they are not put in place without the benefit of
scientific research and concern for the long term viability of our

brigades plan for and undertake control burning. This activity is
supported by research with consideration given to such things as
frequency, pattern and intensity in order to safeguard not only our
property, but also our plant and animal communities.
matters our education is on going and we continue to benefit from the
learning of all people including the scientist as well as the
indigenous and other persons living and working in natural areas.
Kind regards, Sharon and Paul Kinnison
The Car Park
are going to be asked by Council what our opinions are regarding the
construction of the 2 level decked car park along McCarrs Creek Road.
I am strongly opposed to this additional construction along the
don’t think we have a right to impose this onto Church Point, (neither
the residents or the local environment). It effectively changes
the whole of Church Point into a car park.
Church Point sits at
the end of one of the loveliest walks along the waters edge in NSW and
we are proposing to build a 2 level concrete carpark.
to a doubling of the parking levy if this 2 level carpark
construction doesn't go ahead, I would ask Council to consider that if
there is no further work at all to extend the car park or to enhance
Church Point then can the present levy remain around $280.00. Not
ideal, but extending the car park does not solve the problem of
accommodating all our cars anyway.
The present car park layout
could be re-planned to allow end to end double parking for 2 car
families, and narrow bays for small cars, A radical plan along these
lines does exist.
We could also look at our own habits
concerning car ownership. The car park is full because we have become 2
and 3 car families within the last 15 years. (the population hasn' t
I am troubled as to how we have allowed ourselves
to be involved in an agreement with Council , a partnership if you
like, for the works at Church Point, with such open endness in regards
to our level of payment of a parking levy, when no true cost for the
work has been established.
I will end by suggesting that gaining
permission from the Authorities to build a 2 level car park at Church
Point is not certain and doubtful even, and therefore it is possible
that we will be looking at a parking levy of $580.00 plus per car under
the present agreement.

Temporary Closure of
the advice of the Northern Sydney Public Health Unit, Pittwater Council

The closure comes after salmonella bacteria were discovered in surface

vomiting and diarrhoea. This bacterium has previously been identified
in playground sand but this is the first time it has been identified in
The Flying Fox Park remains open and the
Public Health Unit has advised it is safe to play in the park. However,
children must not ingest the bark and should wash their hands after
Barriers have been put in place by the Council to restrict access to
affected areas whilst the bark is replaced.
Council, General Manager, Mark Ferguson said “our duty of care is to
the public and we believe the correct course of action is to close the
affected parts of the playground until the surface bark can be removed
“We expect to fully reopen the playground in about two weeks,” he said.
Sydney Public Health Unit received four notifications of ‘Salmonella
Java’ in children who visited the park over the last two months. Dr
Michael Staff from the Northern Sydney Public Health Unit said “this
kind of salmonella bacteria does not commonly cause illness in NSW. It
has been linked previously to contaminated playground sand in the
Pittwater area. “
“Although this form of gastro-enteritis
does not appear to be particularly contagious, it is important for
parents and carers to follow good hygiene principles when children are
playing outdoors,” he said.

record their progress on the Cerebral Palsy Challenge website.
Council’s Challenge Coordinator and participant Daniel Everett said
teams will participate by walking, running, cycling or other activities
to notch up their daily steps.
“Each team has a ‘virtual mountain’ that needs to be climbed by the end
of the eight-week challenge,” said Mr Everett.
teams will also hold a number of fundraising events such as BBQs and a
lolly-jar guessing competition during the next school holiday vacation
“We urge our supporters to get behind us and
either donate via www.cpchallenge.org.au

New Local Planning Strategy for Pittwater
A new planning strategy for Pittwater was adopted by the Council at its
meeting this week.
Nine months in the making, the planning strategy will lay the
foundation for all future development
in Pittwater, according to Mayor Harvey Rose.
“The strategy has been developed to ensure land use in Pittwater is
sustainable well into the future”.
brief, the planning strategy translates the aims and objectives of the
NSW Government’s Metropolitan Plan into a range of local actions and
targets, including those for housing and employment.
strategy reveals that Pittwater needs to identify potential locations
for employment growth, to comply with the job targets set by the state
government for 2031.
The strategy was on exhibition for public
comment between March and May and attracted 21 submissions and 79
responses to a survey.
Over 30 residents attended a public meeting hosted by the Council to
explain the strategy.
Mayor Rose said following the public exhibition, the strategy was
amended in response to issues raised by residents.
main changes have included an amended recommendation for the southern
buffer area of Warriewood to ensure planning is consistent with the
separate review of the Warriewood Valley taking place now,” he said.
NSW Department of Planning & Infrastructure and the Council are
currently conducting a review of undeveloped land remaining in
Mayor Rose said that discussion regarding
future land release areas, recommendations for achieving sustainable
residential buildings and action to support diversity in housing were
also included in the planning strategy, after comments received from
“The strategy indicates that the 2031 housing target
can be met under existing planning and there is no short to medium term
need for planning initiatives to increase the supply of housing.”
Rose added that Council staff would meet with the Department of
Planning & Infrastructure to adopt a ‘whole of government approach’
for planning in Ingleside.

Tick Season is upon us...
PARALYSIS TICK INFORMATION
SHEET – Canine & Feline
The female paralysis tick, Ixodes holocyclus, is found along the
eastern coast of Australia and causes
poisoning. It is more prevalent in the bushy, seaside areas where there
is an abundance of its natural hosts, the bandicoot and possum. The
paralysis tick is very sensitive to climatic changes and so the life
cycle slows down in cold and dry weather, and accelerates very rapidly
in warm, humid weather. Thus, in
Sydney the worst time for ticks is between September and February,
but it is important to remember that they are present all through the
year and their incidence is climatically controlled.
The life cycle of the tick consists of the adult laying eggs that hatch
into tiny pinhead size larvae. These
attach themselves to a suitable animal (the host), suck blood, fall off
when full, moult and develop into a nymph. The nymph, like the larvae
then repeats the process and finally develops into the adult tick. The
adult then attaches itself to a host, feeds until engorged, falls off
and lays 2000 to 3000 eggs, which hatch into larvae and so complete the
The paralysis toxin which the tick produces comes from the salivary
glands of the adult female tick and
paralysis occurs progressively, that is, the more engorged the tick,
the more toxin it produces which in turn
produces more paralysis.
To our dogs and cats, the all too often result of tick paralysis is an
untimely and uncomfortable death.
So let us speak firstly of prevention. By far the best, if not the only
means of prevention is to search your
that is running your fingers over every square inch of its body. Pay
particular attention to the head, neck, shoulders and forelimbs but not
forgetting between the toes, in the ears and even inside the mouth. Ticks can be found anywhere on your pet
SO BE VIGILANT!
Ticks, even large ones are easily missed so the more members of your
family that can spare the time to go over your pet the better. Products
such as Frontline (cats and dogs) or Advantix (only to be used in dogs
as very toxic to cats) do help if used every 2 weeks. Permoxin rinse,
which is used weekly can also repel ticks but again is only to be used
on dogs as is toxic to cats. While use of these products does help
there is unfortunately no guarantee. For this reason we highly
recommend daily searching of your pet. Also, if your pet has a long or
thick coat, having them clipped short
for the summer months makes searching for ticks that much easier.
Let us suppose you have found a tick on your pet (remember if one is
found always look for more). Do
not start dabbing at it with methylated spirits, kerosene etc. all
that is going to do is further irritate the tick
and burn the animal's skin as well. Grab the tick firmly at the point
of attachment next to the skin with your
fingers or a pair of tweezers and pull the tick out. If the body of the tick breaks off
leaving the head behind embedded in the skin, don't worry, the tick
has been killed and there will only be a slightly prolonged irritation
at the site of attachment.
This is another time for close observation. If your pet is not showing any symptoms (remember
can occur for up to four days after you have removed the tick), keep
him cool, quiet and for the first eight hours withhold food, water and
If your pet develops any of the following symptoms:
YOUR VETERINARIAN NOW !!!
- Wobbly or weak hind legs
- Vomiting or retching
- Change in the sound of the voice;
- Coughing or distressed breathing
No vet will mind a phone call. Let them ascertain the extent of the
poisoning and whether you should
bring your pet in for treatment. It is far better to err on the early
side, apart from the fact that your pet stands a much better chance of survival. The
cost of tick serum is expensive and advanced cases need a lot of other
supportive therapy as well.
At this point it may be as well to explain why there is emphasis on keeping your pet cool and
As the tick poison circulates through the body, there is a gradual
paralysis, starting with the rear legs and
moving forward. If your pet becomes upset, too hot or you take him for
a walk just to see if he becomes
wobbly, you will aggravate his condition. This causes more distress and
exhaustion, which in turn further
aggravates his problems. If you have to transport him to the vet, be
calm, reassure your pet, keep him cool,
restrain him gently and generally keep him as quiet as possible.
Most animals die of
paralysis of the respiratory muscles, hence the emphasis on
breathing. However some animals die from a tick toxin induced pneumonia, which
can be caused by two
One is exposure. Cats have a nasty habit of crawling off somewhere when
they are ill. It rains during the night, the paralysis worsens and
without shelter your pet is severely stressed by chilling, leading to
pneumonia. The second cause is the reason why food and water must be withheld if you
suspect tick poisoning:
as the larynx is not operating as it should be due to the tick
poisoning, the chances of stomach contents being vomited up and inhaled
into the lungs by accident is a very real risk. When this happens a
bacterial infection usually occurs and pneumonia again.
To finish up, here are a few answers to some commonly asked questions:
Toward the end of the summer months as you continue to remove ticks
from your pets, it is possible that
- No breed or crossbreed of dog or cat is more immune
than any other is. All are equally susceptible
age of the animal does not make any difference; all are equally
vulnerable. However, the young and the elderly do have a higher
- At the beginning of the season, ticks do appear to
have greater toxicity; therefore the death rate is higher.
they may have built up some immunity
but don't rely on it! Immunity will lapse during the winter
when there are few ticks about, leaving your pet just as vulnerable
when the new tick season starts.
The tick season is from September to April
