The year was 1982, the skirts were high, the hair was big and the music that we remember so well easily takes us back in a time warp to those heady school days when everything was so much simpler but at the time seemed all so hard. 30 years on, the 1982 Sorell District High School leavers reunited on 20th July at The Mecure Hotel, to reminisce and relive some of those old memories that seemed almost

like yesterday, and wonder how quickly 30 years can fly by. Having talked about a reunion for a number of years, Tish Richardson, Justine McGuinness, Shane Newitt and Janine Jakobovski managed to finally get everyone together with the use of social media and some good old fashioned detective skills. While some of the faces were not so instantly recognisable, the camaraderie came easily as

we slipped back to those familiar friendships to catch up on the last 30 years. The experience of a reunion is a bit surreal but deep down none of us have really changed that much, the personalities and dynamics are the same and maybe we’re not really in our 40’s at all, still just 16 with 30 years experience. Looking forward to the 35th anniversary, sometime in 2017.

Considering the reputation for older members in the bowls community, it is not overtime for the Sorell Bowls Club to put disability toilets in. And that is just what President Ron Cowen is smiling about and he is still glowing from his meeting with the Premier and pledges of assistance from both the State and Sorell Council.

Toilet humour?

Rebecca White MP visited the Sorell Bowls Club recently providing a certificate to acknowledge a grant of $10,000 from the Premier’s Discretionary Fund toward the construction of disability toilets and update of facilities including a unisex toilet and new office area. "The toilets are particularly important to us," says Ron when he met with Rebecca White MP (pictured with members) at a recent presentation confirming the Premiers commitment. "They will be built so as to be more accessible from the greens which will be good considering mobility and at times the need to get to toilets quickly." Ron, with outgoing president Jim Gardener and Life Member, were poring over the first concept plans for the extensions to the club rooms which have been there since 1964. He explained that it is one of the few Clubs owned by the members, and very well supported by the fund raising efforts of committee and members. Some pretty daunting maintenance figures were thrown

Ron Cowen, Rebecca White MP and assembled members.

around with a 10 year cyclic resurfacing cost for the greens at around the $120,000 mark. "This is where our sponsors and these types of grants are especially important to us," explains Ron. "Without their generosity - and I will pick out DJ Motors as an example - we would find it extremely hard to make it financially through the year. DJ's sponsor Bowls in Southern Tasmania which in turn brings $1000 annually into our Club." With the first $10,000 in hand the Club will be looking for further funds by way of applying for grants

Guides future concerns The story of the demise of the Sorell Girl Guides meeting rooms has been covered from time to time in these pages, but now the story needs to be brought up to date following a meeting of parents and supporters of the Guides. Parents have rallied taking the onus off Guide Leaders to find a new permanent place for their weekly meetings and activities with a Parent Support Group formed. Chairperson Marissa Brown and Secretary Robyn Lewis are working with parents to head off the possible closure of Guides in Sorell. Guiding has been alive and well in Sorell since 1964. Robyn Lewis says that the only way to retain Guiding in Sorell is to sort out the future accommodation for guides before the current temporary lease on the St George Church Hall lapses in August. The Guides lost their meeting place in November last year to make way for the Council CAC. "We don't have much time, and we need to deal with the uncertainty of the future so our leaders and guides can get on with guiding

activities," explained Robyn. "At the July Council general meeting we asked Council to clarify their plans for accommodating the Guides, which they undertook to do as soon as they can. We just hope that is soon enough." (Roundabout did ask the Mayor to comment, but he has not responded at time of publication.) The needs of the Guides are for a place within Sorell, preferably, where Guides can arrive by bus and without to much impost on parents, as well as being close to their community service commitments. "Our second strategy is to put our accommodation needs out to the public. Maybe there is a block of land we could access, or a building that we have not been able to find through our own networks?" said Robyn. If anyone has any ideas or need more information they should contact Marissa Brown on 0406 623 268 or via email It is also possible to follow the Guides campaign on FindSorellGirlGuidesAHome

Davis panels unveiling

Clarence Council have recently approved funding to undertake improvements to the South Arm Cenotaph. The Cenotaph (shown below) attracts a big crowd at its mid day ANZAC service and the works when completed will be well appreciated. $30,500 has been set aside by Council with a further $5,000 provided by the Department of Premier and Cabinet under the War Memorial Grants Program. South Arm RSL Sub-Branch president Terry Roe says this is only the latest support from the Clarence Council, following up works that have been going on for years to ensure the Cenotaph is maintained.

"I cannot speak highly enough of Council and their officers in providing assistance. There is no way our small sub-branch could undertake the care deserving of the Cenotaph without assistance," said Terry. Along with DDA access upgrades the project will also fund resurfacing the area, re-rendering works as well as additional lettering acknowledging the; Boer War, Korean War, Malayan Emergency, Vietnam War, First Gulf War, East Timor, Afghanistan, Iraq and the ongoing Peacekeeping from 1947. Terry says the entire project should be completed well before ANZAC Day 2014.

At a recent ceremony at Sorell Primary, students, teachers and friends witnessed the unveiling of the Neil Davis panels celebrating his contribution to the world. Neil Davis, a past Sorell School student, footballer and resident in his youth, became famous as a photo journalist and cameraman RICHMOND predominantly in the bloody conflicts of South East Asia from 1964.

Great pet care for Sorell The F ue Pro • Flue Cleaning • Gutter Cleaning • Roof Painting • Tile roof restoration • Wood heater repairs

Servicing all areas 0407 040 641

The Sorell area supposedly has one of the highest pet ownerships in Tasmania. Well lucky for us then, that we have a very well equipped veterinarian service headed up by veterinarian Rob Callaway, and they can look after most small animal health problem and checkups. The building is pretty deceptive when you see it from the front, being only about one room wide, but once you enter you see that it has been built a bit like the Doctor's Tardis, once you are in you can see how far it extends. The reception, consult rooms, operating theatres, treatment and recovery rooms stretching back the depth of the site. Rob says that the aim of the renovations, some years ago, was to be able to provide comprehensive veterinarian services locally. "Another recent innovation has been to offer the 'Wednesday Seniors Card and Pensioners Discount Day earmarked for 10% discount off both treatments and medicines required. This initiative has been undertaken to assist in the very real cost of pet care," explained Rob. "Our practice has changed incredibly in the 10 years I have been involved, with better doctor to staff ratios, investment in x-ray and ultra sonic equipment, as well as a more proactive approach to managing pet care for customers." Rob Callaway says that getting the layup of practice right is only part of the changes, with the extended facilities the emphasis was to focus the practice on meeting pet owners needs. Pet owners who use the local veterinarian services would have already experienced reminders on your pets health, and while initially you might think this is just a reminder that the vet wants your business, if you think a little deeper you realise that the reminder is a preventative action, meaning your pet will be healthier and happier. The next stage of this approach to pet care is a customised approach to breed management, explained Rob. "For example if you have a King Charles Spaniel we know that your pet is genetically prone for dry eye. There is a relatively simple solution to this and other ailments. Arthritis is another good example - certain dogs will suffer more from this and again it is fairly simple with good veterinarian guidance to alleviate the discomfort for your pet."

TWO Sorell High School students have been appointed part-time trainees at Bendigo Banks Sorell and District Community Bank. As part of a program co-sponsored by the bank and the Beacon Foundation, the year 10 students, Marnii Hyland and Alissa Griffith (pictured with manager Louise Dine) will complete a Business Certificate III during their traineeship. "This is just one of the ways the Community Bank is involved with the Sorell district high school

in very practical ways," says manager Louise Dine. "We also offer finance presentations to students, with a focus on banking technology, budgeting to save for a first car and planning for being able to afford that eventual move out of home.

Singing invitation

Sing Australia Sorell is one of about 150 singing groups in the network of Sing Australia throughout Australia. We have fun singing without having to go through the ordeal of auditioning. There are nine such groups in Tasmania, three in the south. We often get together with Hobart and Kingston groups for joint gigs. The most recent of these was four performances in the Festival of Voices. You have probably seen us around Sorell at the Church fair and on Anzac Day. We have a regular sing-along at Ningana Nursing Home on the 2nd Tuesday of each month which we and the residents enjoy. You can next see us in a combined presentation at St David’s Cathedral on Saturday August 10th from 2pm – 3pm.

Development not small scale The community’s fight to stop the Copping C cell may appear to be a fight over a small hole in the ground and “NIMBY–ish” but the Copping C cell site is no small landfill facility. This site (see map) is a huge 707 hectares of land in the middle of an agricultural zone pending rezoning to Utility, enabling not one, but two or more C cells each the size of three football fields. The site will take all hazardous waste from Tasmania and quarantine waste from Antarctica as well as the general waste landfill for the southern region of Tasmania. Interim Utility rezoning of this site may go ahead under the new Government planning scheme enabling massive infrastructure to be built, including heavy machinery, storm water holding ponds, leachate ponds and pumping facilities. This rezoning permits on site soil remediation and recycling plants, requiring huge concrete storage facilities for contaminated soils and sorting

and recycling general waste. All this to go ahead without geology, geomorphology, or environmental impact study since 1998. The sheer volume of heavy trucks will have enormous impact on the narrow roads past the airport through Sorell to Copping. The impact of this landfill site on surrounding agricultural land and waterways will be catastrophic. The recent stormwater testing cover-up of extremely high levels of e coli, lead and cadmium flushed into the Carlton River tributary is only a sample of things to come (see picture). The impact of this development reverberates throughout the whole community and this is why the community is fighting back. The community is doing what Government should do, to genuinely assess the impact of this massive development and research less impacting alternatives, which are already available.

Play the policy not the man

The community is invited to find more information about the proposed C-Cell and the operations of the Copping landfill by logging onto our website at or contacting Southern Waste Solutions (SWS) on 6273 9712. Earlier this month SWS were invited at the last possible moment to display at a Waste Expo, only to see public statements challenging the Chief Executive Officer to ‘swallow her pride’ and attend. SWS Chairman Ron Ward said his organisation had nothing to hide and those putting the expo together had over stepped the mark. “People have a right to make their point and that is an important part of the democratic process, but just as importantly people have a right to do their job,” Mr Ward said. “As I understand it, our CEO did attend the event, however what was missing was the opportunity for Southern Waste Solutions to demonstrate its best practice approach to waste management. “Tasmania is the only state in Australia without a Category C waste disposal cell. The proposal for a C cell at Copping to hold what is referred to as controlled waste, is the result of more than 20 years research and planning by government. “The development has been given the stamp of approval by the Environment Protection Authority following a thorough assessment. “If we are serious about

maintaining Tasmania’s clean, green reputation and environmental credentials, we all need to take responsibility for the waste we produce. “This is an environmentally responsible and ethical response to a long-standing waste challenge that has been through a stringent assessment process. “It is vital for all Tasmanians that we have the proper best practice infrastructure in place to protect public health and our environment as well as support our industries, businesses and jobs,” Mr Ward said.

Finding Balance- By Lee-Anne Peters

Have you noticed that we tend to seek a sort of balance in our lives? When you think of balancing your life you may consider your schedule, your daily activities or perhaps even thinking of finding balance is just too hard for you right now! When you are already overwhelmed and off balance it can be difficult to know where and how to start repairing things. Here are my top tips to help you find a sense of balance: 1. Breathing – Pay attention to your breathing. This will help calm and empower you.

2. One step at a time – start with one simple and doable step. Perhaps for you it will be to make a commitment to yourself daily. 3. Put a plan of action into place – this can help give you clarity and a sense of personal accomplishment. 4. Gratitude – being thankful for the small things in your life will bring more wonderful things to your attention. 5. Ask for help – support is out there for you. Ask for help if you need it. To find your own personal balance consider how you feel, what is or isn’t working for you in your life and any adjustments you can make to your schedule. Take steps to bring more balance into your day!

Lee-Anne Peters is a local author, artist, mentor and founder of the award-winning Temple of Balance.

Meeting at the Sorell School, Premier Lara Giddings' Sorell Community Forum was held to enable the public to put local issues direct to the Premier and accompanying Ministers. The attendance was good, and the day was set when a fire alarm required the mass evacuation of the facility. So while somewhat inconvenient, the Premier and entourage took to the football ground to mingle and chat with participants and students. On the return to the Forum the Premier outlined labour's 'Jobs, People & Opportunities' vision, saying that in the Jobs basket it was largely irrelevant which side of politics is in power;

loss challenges. For our region government's investment in the proposed SE Irrigation Scheme is a good example of investing for jobs and growth, therefore people benefit. Then the opportunities which benefit our kids, the training provided for youth as well as others who need to retrain, backing up jobs and production opportunities, and finding the right markets for our products. Given that setting, the public were asked to raise issues with Jim Gardener, getting the ball rolling with a plea to the Premier to assist in getting a disability toilet in place at the Bowls Club. Eaglehawk Neck rep 'Jan' advocated support for the newly formed Eaglehawk Neck Action Community Taskforce (ENACT) whose purpose is enhancing and promoting investment and jobs for the area. Next the C Cell raised its head from several spokespeople reinforced by the Southern Beaches Conservation Society's Angela Marsh. The message: wrong science, wrong place, wrong fit with Tassie 'clean green' values. The comments; B Cell recently overflowed heavy metal leakage, State's non-enactment of

a Statewide Waste Management Plan? The Premier, while insisting this was not her portfolio area, cited confidence in the EPA and process, and said we need a place to 'put' our hazardous waste. 'We created the waste - we need to deal with it'. On possible C Cell funding via the Forest Peace Deal Funding, the Premier assured that this would not happen. Then a final comment from the floor, "Landfill is illegal in many countries". A recent newcomer 'Andy' commented on why he had relocated home and business to Sorell from QLD, citing freshest air, cleanest food, liveability issues, NBN, airport access as prime reasons why he relocated saying 'these were clues to the future'. Saakia Itchins from Southern Beaches Regional Arts asked support from the Premier and government (including local government) for a permanent, dedicated Arts and Cultural centre which would have obvious benefits supporting arts and to showcase local arts as a visitor experience. The Premier indicated support for the concept. Youth Disengagement and lack of investment in our youth was raised by Pittwater Community Centre Suzie Edwards; multi-generational unemployment, no youth worker, or funds, a transport system set to commuting - not engaging youth needs, and 'today's 9 equals yesterdays 16'. The debate here was joined by many citing we are not investing human capital in opportunities for youth, the effect of disengaged youth in the education sector, facilitating the disengaged to setting their own goals, and the need for 'someone' to show local leadership in this. The Premier advised that this is not a localised issue. The last issue for the day was concern over the changes to speed limits raised by Lindsay White and Ricky Birch, to which Minister O'Byrne replied. The Minister said that government could not ignore the irrefutable advice that reducing speed limits will minimise injury, death, and accidents. The day forum closed with the Premier thanking all that attended and inviting further discussion over a cuppa and cake.

Speak Up: Speak Out - Ending family violence together Family violence, including men’s violence against women, can increase after natural disasters. This latest article in a series looks at how we all have a role to play reducing and preventing this violence. Reacting to trauma Disasters can lead to grief, loss, trauma, homelessness and unemployment. Tensions can increase when couples spend more time together, including in unfamiliar accommodation. But there are no excuses for any type of family violence in response to these pressures. It is against the law and not tolerated. What we can do Looking specifically at men’s violence against women, there is something we can all do to prevent it. Men can lessen violence in their own lives. Communities and organisations can build gender‑equal relations and act against violence. Governments can make structural and cultural improvements to build a safer society. We can support those experiencing family violence, take steps when a man is abusing someone in his family, challenge a mate who jokes about family violence such as rape, and advise men on where to go to get help. Being the solution Dr Michael Flood’s book, Men

Speak Up: A toolkit for action in men’s daily lives, is aimed at men but it contains advice for us all. Dr Flood identified three broad forms of action starting with behaving non-violently ourselves. He also suggests taking individual and collective action against perpetrators. Dr Flood says one of the best places to start is with yourself. Don’t use violence. Build respectful and non‑violent relations with women. Resist sexist and violent remarks about women. And get informed about the realities of men’s violence against women

Being an active bystander can include supporting victims and survivors, acting as an egalitarian role model and challenging the norms and inequalities which sustain men’s violence against women. When it is safe to do so it may be appropriate to talk with potential perpetrators. If you witness actual family violence it is more appropriate to call the police and not expose yourself to a potentially violent situation. Speaking out We can all learn to talk about

men’s violence against women so we can raise the issue with mates, colleagues, children and others and challenge comments which condone violence. This can include describing the seriousness of men’s violence against women as well as its impacts and causes. For more information visit Getting help There are no excuses for partner/family violence of any type. Seeking assistance is vital where relationships are strained and violence has emerged.

Street Art festival

With a bit of a different slant than the normal art event, Clarence City Council is hosting the ST.ART Festival in August at Rosny Farm adjacent to the Rosny Golf Club. According to Clarence Mayor, Doug Chipman, the annual Festival exists to give young people an exciting and engaging alternative to tagging and destructive use of aerosol paint. “By presenting a wide range of alternative art forms, it demonstrates that not only is there value in non-destructive public art, but that there are professional pathways for those who choose to express themselves in progressive media,” Mayor Chipman said. The public day will engage arts with live performances from experimental electronic artists Toydeath, cTrix and dot.ay and installation artworks by students of Rose Bay High School as part of their Artist in Residency program. There will also be opportunities for young people to have a go at traditional forms of street art including aerosol spray and stencilling opportunities and will also go beyond the art:vandalism divide and plunge into new elements of DIY street art. A great day out for the whole family, free of charge on Saturday August 24, 1pm-5pm at the Rosny Farm.

Energy Matter's

with Matthew Millington Feed in tariffs & Government Rebates With the growth in interest and even the politics of Solar Power for homes and businesses, the debate on 'feed in tariffs & Government rebates' is taking some attention away from the real facts. Over the last 4 years the price of solar modules have fallen about 75% making home systems just as affordable as when there where huge government rebates and less confusion about the feed in tariff. Rebates - The facts are as we speak there are still rebates available with the average 3kW solar system still able to get rebates of around $1,900. Feed in Tariffs – Due to the upcoming sale of Aurora, the feed in tariff is up for debate and has been receiving a fair bit of press of late. Since the inception of Solar Grid Connect, feed in tariff for Tasmania has been 1 for 1 which means we get credited by Aurora the same rate for any power we export to Aurora as we purchase it for. At this stage, the government has signalled, it looks like any changes to the feed in tariff will not be implemented until January 2017 for all customers who currently have solar installed or get it installed prior to the end of this year. For those customers who get solar installed after December 31 it is likely they will receive a lower feed in tariff, it has been suggested the lower rate could be as low as 8c per KW Hour exported however it seems more likely it will probably be around 12-16 cents per kW Hour exported. Because everyone's situation is different it really pays to get an onsite inspection of your house (good design can mean you use more power on site hence feed in tariff is less important) & a proper review of your power bill and discussion on how and when you use your power.

wounded and lie there with a gut full of shrapnel -I’d seen a lot of wounded soldiers die like that, and I didn’t care for it at all.” Tim Bowden is supportive of the NDEC concept and has offered his assistance where possible. The working group has also gathered support from Neil’s ABC colleagues from his war correspondent days, RSL Clubs and now the Premier. It is also possible that Sorell School students will become involved during the course of the project. The proposed venue for the NDEC is the old railway shed in Station Lane, Sorell. The Council owned, heritage listed building is in desperate need of restoration. The Bellerive to Sorell Railway operated from 1892 until 1926 and the shed is an integral part of Sorell’s history. The Council did embark on an environmental cleanup of the site last year. This was expediently abandoned for a number of reasons. Hopefully funding has been set aside this financial year to complete the remediation works and the associated archaeological dig. The proposed Neil Davis Exhibition Centre in the sympathetically restored railway shed would pay tribute to the life and works of Neil. The aim is to create a highly interactive experience that will engage the visitors who will come to the NDEC from near and far. The working group is in the early stages of an ambitious cultural/ tourism project that is achievable and has merit. What we need locally is your support so I invite you to give me a call or contact me by email:

The Eastcoast Regional Development Organisation have received a Grant from GSB Council to assist in repairing the 'Pizza/ Bread Oven Shed' built by Dave Walker at The Village, Triabunna. The project also includes a concrete slab to provide an area for outdoor enjoyment of freshly baked pizzas. A second grant of $3,700 from the Foundation of Rural & Regional Renewal will be spent on a concrete floor, framing and external cladding creating a lockable area of the large open

fronted shed at The Village, with future plans for the remaining part of the building to be made into a billiard room, pottery studio and under cover market area.

Carmel’s Column The proposed Neil Davis Exhibition Centre for Sorell has received a most welcomed funding allocation of $5000 from Premier Lara Giddings. Michael Polley MP was initially approached and miraculously soon after, confirmation of the funding was received in a letter of support from the Premier. The working group is grateful for the grant and intends to engage a graphic designer to make a short sharp promotional video of the proposed Neil Davis Exhibition Centre (NDEC). The video will be beamed around the world in an attempt to gain support (hopefully financial) for the project. Neil Davis, a Sorell lad, went to the local school, was a competitive athlete and played football with Sorell. Neil was a world renowned and respected war correspondent, reporting predominantly in the South East Asian region in the 1960’s 70’s and 80’s. He brought the Vietnam War into our lounge rooms through the TV Newsreels and his courageous filming of the conflict. Much of the footage is unforgettable. Neil Davis died in 1985 as a result of a shrapnel blast while filming a minor Thai coup on the streets of Bangkok. There is an amazing story to tell about Neil’s life and works. Tim Bowden, who wrote the book “One Crowded hour” about Neil’s life quoted Davis in the opening chapter saying “I wasn’t afraid of being killed, but I really didn’t want to be

At the official opening of 'a toilet and laundry block' at Dunalley recently, David Daniels, District Governor, Lions Tasmania , welcomed those present and explained Lions’ response to an ongoing need for shower and laundry facilities in the bush fire affected community. Mr Daniels explained that the Community Amenities Block contains a laundry with three washing machine/clothes dryer units, four shower/toilet areas and a separate disabled shower/ toilet area. “The building is located on Tasmania Fire Service land in Bay Street, next to the Dunalley Fire Station, which is ideal for easy public access while still offering security. “It is expected that it will be used mainly by locals who are living in temporary accommodation on their land, as well as those returning to the district on weekends to prepare their blocks for rebuilding and those involved in house construction in the area.” This project is only one of

many responses by the Lions locally, statewide and indeed internationally to assist in the bushfire response. In excess of $600,000 has been donated to the Lions Appeal and all of this has or will continue to be distributed by the Tasmanian Lions Bushfire Disaster Response Group. The project has been supported by Hazell Bros with the supply of the modular building, Mirowski Design undertook the 'design' aspects , and the HIA carried out the refurbishing the building.

With a photographic exhibition of West Coast icon shots, Carol Maney's 'Wild Place' opened at the St George Square Hall in the Park at Sorell. There were nibbles and refreshments, setting a wonderful scene for a quiet perusal of the images. Members of Southern Beaches Regional Arts (SBRA), headed by member Saakia Itchins, had put the exhibition together which will be on display till the end of July. A slide Show of SBRA activities and events was run, and three of the cast of the upcoming Sorell on Stage 'Carry on Convicts' gave a preview. A great little event on the Sorell Arts Calendar.

After being one of the front-line Brigades during the Forcett Fire in January, the Midway Point Volunteer Fire Brigade is going to be Freezin' in August. The 'Freezin', a Lions Club initiative, will be held on the Aug 18th at Long Beach, Sandy Bay at 10.30am fundraising for the Tasmanian Fire Service Family Support Fund. The Fund exists to assist fire fighters and their families when things go wrong. Firefighters will be donning fancy dress and having a dip or a splash in the Derwent to realise donations from supporters. Brigade Secretary, Cindy Walker says at this stage around $750 has been raised ensuring their reluctant Brigade Chief Andrew Dare will be taking a walk in the river with other members. "We have a target of $1000 which throws the challenge to our field works officer Claudio to get in the water as well," says Cindy. To contribute visit freezinforareason., or donate via collection tin in Sorell at Subway, Bendigo Bank, or Eyelines. For further info contact Cindy on 0409 953 002. She says 'Freezin' will be fun!'

Reflecting and recovering

The opportunity to share stories about our community’s experience of the bushfires will be the focus of a special performance by the Hobart Playback Theatre on August 31. The event, to be held at 12 noon at the Eaglehawk Neck Community Hall, is being organised by Anglicare. A free barbecue will follow the one hour performance. Playback Theatre is an improvisational style of theatre which sees the audience tell stories and watch them enacted on the spot by the performers. “In my conversations with people from fire-affected areas a common theme has emerged – people want to talk about what happened to them during and after the fires,” said Anglicare’s

Sarah Howells. “For this reason we’ve partnered with the Hobart Playback Theatre to create an opportunity to celebrate our community, to reflect on what took place here and the impact it has had”. Anyone connected with the community is invited to participate on the day – either by sharing stories or watching the resulting performance. “Hobart Playback Theatre performances are very powerful as people can often relate to elements of everyone’s stories – including the humour and lighthearted moments,” said Sarah. “It is a great way to strengthen our connections with each other and to help our community’s post-fire recovery”.

Opening by Design John and Rebekah Yaxley may have suffered significant damage to the Yaxley Estate vineyard in the January fires but they’re bouncing right back by focusing their attention on their other small business ‘Vines & Designs’ at the famous Copping Museum. During June and July John and Rebekah undertook renovations and will re-open their café, gallery, mini-provedore and museum 9am through till 2pm, Thursdays to Mondays from August 1st. Once daylight savings is back closing time will change to 5pm. Typical of John, Rebekah and their very friendly staff, you’ll receive a warm welcome and will not be rushed to leave, only shutting the doors once there’s no-one left to serve. Along with showing off their renovations Rebekah and John are looking forward to the reinvented Monday night happy hour which was trialled in May. "The happy hour includes discounted wine for diners and is often accompanied by lovely tunes from a local musician. With every meal, diners receive a $5 glass of regional wine or a $5 bottle of Van Diemen beer," explains Rebekah.

Rebekah and John say don’t be put off by the day of the week - Monday museum nights are not late nights! Meals will be served between 5pm and 7pm and subsequent drinks will be available at $5 until 6pm when prices return to normal for existing diners. Then there is the upcoming exhibition from local artist Jill Harris says Rebekah. "Jill has been busy creating paintings inspired by the recent

SBRA Show and Tell On Ornaments and Art!

In an age where it is cool to be minimalistic within the home as well as outside it, Jodi Chivers (pictured below), artist, questions its relevance to her own life.

ever changing environment.' It is a thought provoking body of work and the fact that the artist uses a 'one colour' approach adds a 'wow' factor to these visually arresting pieces. Jodi explained her theory and motives for this body of art at the recent Southern Beaches Regional Arts monthly “Show and Tell” evening. Two or three journals accompany almost every piece, with the journals works of art in themselves. In her own words “Themes and nostalgia are a catalyst for my current work. Symbolically I question the current status of 'ornament' by choosing one of the oldest human ritualistic collectable objects know to mankind, the animal figurine. I encourage the viewer to consider the validity and psychological benefits that visual ornaments provide.” The next 'Show and Tell' meeting will be held on Tuesday 13th August at the Lewisham Tavern, at 7pm. Everyone is welcome to hear Mike Maddock, feature artist of the month. Please bring something with you to share afterwards. It can be anything with an artistic vibe, from verse to prose, paint to sculpture, or music to our ears. Join us for a meal at 6pm.

Born and bred a country girl, her artistic talents shone through at an early age. She would draw on anything she could lay her hands on from scraps of paper to cardboard bits, barks and timber. She even made her own paint from clay. Family ornaments are the focus of her current dive into an art theme that stands aside. She is pushed back in time when seeing familiar objects, links them with personal tales, and has transformed them into a visual representative series of large oils using animal figurines as her subjects. These works carry a translucent glass glazed quality that immediately captures the senses. They 'elevate the place and importance of these so-called 'dust collectors' in an Saakia Itchins

Dominos Raw win for Hawthorn Pizza Winner The Sorell Dominos store will be competing in the Dominos National Pizza Making Championships on the 31st July. Store manager John Cobley is pretty excited to have his team selected for the 4th year in a row. "Our team took away the National Trophy in 2010 and 2011, and came 2nd in 2012. Now we are setting our sights on the 2013." It's a pretty impressive achievement from our local pizza makers considering they are selected out of 500 stores Australia wide to get into the finals. "Dominos have a rigorous preselection program with assessors travelling the country to select the top eight stores," explains John. "Our team of four are so enthusiastic to regain the title that they are in store early each morning honing their skills in speed, composition and presentation. Their record is 45 seconds to produce 6 pizzas." Good luck guys, hope to see a new trophy on the wall in August!

1308 Rose Swan & Crystal Stanley from Swansea

Thirty eight residents from Orford, Triabunna & Swansea spent Saturday (20/07) watching Hawthorn defeat The Western Bulldogs by 19 points at Aurora Stadium in Launceston. The bus trip and tickets into the game were provided by Rural Alive & Well to allow community members impacted by the losses of employment & income through the closure of the Forest Industry to enjoy a day out. Most had not been to the footy at Aurora Stadium before and for some it was their first AFL experience.

Simple steps to stop winter weight gain It’s 4 weeks into winter and a good time to re-assess and ask yourself a few questions…..have I stopped moving as much during the day? Am I sitting more? Have I replaced exercise with the couch? Am I choosing unhealthy comfort food instead of good quality and nutritious food? If I continue to behave like this where will I be in a few months? Overweight? Tired and grumpy? Uncomfortable in my clothes? Time to grab the next 8 weeks by the scruff of the neck and avoid becoming a victim of winter weight gain. Here are a few positive health habits you could add to your week: • Swap 1 meal every day this week for a soup. • Reduce meal and drink portion sizes. • Do at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise on most days. Try for 200 minutes per week. • Walking 10 000 steps a day using a pedometer; turn it into a competition with your family. • Sit less at work and at home (Recent research by Baker IDI indicates that standing for half the

day is equivalent to a 50 minute walk and significantly reduces your risk of developing chronic disease eg Diabetes). • Limit the number of nights each week you drink alcohol. • Vary the type and intensity of exercise to avoid plateaus. Try committing to one new habit that you know will benefit your health in the long term…it will become second nature and move you closer to great health and energy levels. For more advice book a session with Shaned Gaffney (Exercise Physiologist and Health Coach) at Healthy Horizons in Dodges Ferry. Shaned can be contacted on 0418 146 973, shanedomond@ or at Healthy Horizons on 6265 9404.

Once daylight savings kicks in practices will be held at the Runnymede Cricket Ground on Levendale Road."
