Intersection gets attention Pedestrians, cyclists and motorists alike will be pleased to learn that the intersection of Howe and Morehead Streets will soon receive improvements designed to make it safer for all these modes of travel. Newcastle City Council is installing kerb extensions at the pedestrian crossing on Howe Street as well as a pedestrian refuge island in Morehead Street to assist people crossing these roads. This will shorten the distance that pedestrians are on the actual roadway. Extension of the kerb at the corner of Lambton Park will remove the dedicated left turn lane and provide only one southbound lane on Morehead Street for through and left-turning traffic. The traffic island in Morehead Street outside Lambton Park will be removed and the left turn from Morehead Street into Howe Street

The intersection of Morehead St with Howe St is well known to local residents and motorists for its regular motor vehicle accidents and pedestrian near misses. The federally funded Black Spot Programme improvements will be welcomed will be realigned to improve the format of the intersection and allow Stop signs and lines to be better positioned. These improvements aim to reduce cross traffic crashes and reduce the

distance for pedestrians crossing the roads. These works, estimated to cost $147,000, have been fully funded by the Federal Government’s Black Spot Programme.

Humour, humanity and history The next production in Newcastle Theatre Company’s 2016 Season is The One Day of the Year. Through Hughie, the son, we look back into early 1960’s Australia as a time of growing pains and rebellion; he represents the hope for the future and signals the impending changes that shaped post war Australian culture. When The One Day of the Year was first performed in 1961 it caused much controversy. The play was not the representation that the RSL or the older generation wanted to entertain. Today the play is a popular, historic piece that sensitively reflects on a culture and way of life that many will remember, the days when no one locked their back doors and neighbours were your best friends. The story is as much about family relationships and father/son conflict as it is about the range of attitudes over time to the great Australian icon - Anzac Day. There is much humor and humanity in the play and the stellar cast of Philip McGrath, Jan Hunt, David Yarrow, Jarrod Sansom and Elissa Shand bring this iconic piece to life as the actors portray the characters with humour, honesty and empathy. The local Australian Military Forces Re-enactment

Unit will be a significant part of the evening’s displays together with a photographic display, an iconic “Two-Up Game” and an exhibition of lamps created by Philip McGrath, displayed in the foyer. Don’t miss what promises to a truly Aussie evening at your local theatre, Newcastle Theatre Company at 88 De Vitre Street Lambton. The play opens Saturday 16th April and plays through to 30th April, there are also matinee performances at 2pm on Sunday 17th April and Saturday 23rd April, together will be a special performance at 8pm on Anzac Day. Bookings may be made online at newcastletheatrecompany. com.au or by calling the box office on 4952 4958 weekdays from 3-6pm. Lambton Local has a two double passes to giveaway to the winners’ choice of performance. To enter text your name and preferred performance day/time to 0455 210 000 by no later than 10th April. Winners will be advised by phone and their names published next month. Winners of double passes for last month’s ‘Death and the Maiden’ were Venetia Seddon of Eleebana and Barry Allen of Lambton.

Lambton then, Lambton now Council mergers are nothing new With all the current talk of council mergers, it is worth remembering that Newcastle has been through it all before, back in 1938. Newcastle Borough Council was first created in 1859, but it only encompassed a tiny area east of Auckland St in the city. All the outlying townships such as Lambton remained under the care, or more often neglect, of the state parliament in Sydney. An editorial in the Newcastle Chronicle in 1871 expressed the frustration of locals: “They have learned by bitter experience that parliament, which should have handled the revenue of the colony for the general good, has, by its corruption, come to look upon a grant for this or that purpose as a special favour only to be conferred on special consideration…No matter how badly this road might want mending, that river require bridging, or the country, generally, require opening up, nothing was done.” This led to a concerted push by residents to have their townships incorporated as municipal councils with the power to levy rates, and thus look after their own

interests. In 1871 councils were formed in Waratah, Wickham, Lambton and Hamilton. The 1871 editorial noted: “The immediate neighbourhood of Newcastle promises to become a series of close-fitting municipal blocks, like the pieces in a geographical puzzle.” This proved to be, as in the following years another seven councils were formed, finishing with New Lambton and Stockton in 1889. Interestingly the same editorial that enthused about the formation of councils also presaged their demise, noting the need for a “confederation” of councils, so as to achieve “greater general improvements, and less difficulties and quarrels between the neighbouring municipalities, than for each to remain, as now, an isolated self-seeking body.” This prediction also proved to be, when in March 1938, 11 local councils merged to form the City of Greater Newcastle, leaving behind various council chambers that were then used for community purposes. You can view these photos and more details at www.lachlanwetherall.com The Lambton Council Chambers on the corner of Morehead and Elder Streets became the Lambton Branch Library (below) in February 1950, and continues to be used for this purpose to this day. On opposite page Lambton’s elected councillors are seated outside the Council Chambers in 1895.

THE

NEW NEW LAMBTON VETERINARY CLINIC

20 years business growth for local Vet

Dr Fiona Wallace began her first veterinary business almost 20 years ago now. Starting out as Fiona’s Vetmobile, the business quickly grew to become New Lambton Veterinary Clinic in Clarence Road New Lambton. In late 2015 Fiona and staff took the bold step of moving to their new ‘home’, a state of the art, purposefitted clinic on Lambton Road at Broadmeadow. Entry to the clinic is from Perth Road Broadmeadow, turn at the McDonalds/Rovert Lighting intersection. “Our goal is to become Newcastle’s premier stressfree veterinary clinic,” Dr Wallace told Lambton Local. “For today’s kids a dentist visit is far more pleasurable than in the past. That’s due to new technologies and sensibilities around patient care. My staff and I want to be a part of that same shift in veterinary care. We know that better patient outcomes are possible when pets are relaxed and comfortable with their surroundings before, during and after treatment.” “Pet owners are less apprehensive too when they know their furry friends are relaxed. “We have treats at hand throughout the clinic which helps to settle animals”. “In addition, we use pheromone diffusers throughout the clinic which release chemical compounds identical to those which dogs and cats release in nature to calm each other. “Psycho-acoustically tested music called Through A Dog’s Ear is piped through the clinic. This has been proven to be effective in reducing anxiety in both cats and dogs”.

THE

New Lambton Vet Clinic is a full service practice offering consultations, surgery, pathology, radiology and ultrasound all from the one premises. Dr Wallace and staff look forward to seeing new and existing clients at New Lambton Vet Clinic’s Open Day on Saturday 16th April. Tours of the new clinic, trade displays, petcare advice and plenty of fun for the kids will be on offer. For more details see following pages.

Congratulations d to Dr Wallace an W staff on the NE New Lambton Vet Clinic...

Julie Tolliday from Barkers in Balance is pleased to provide Puppy School for New Lambton Vet Clinic. According to Julie it’s the period 8 to 18 weeks of age that are most critical period for learning in puppies. “The course we offer is far more than “Sit”, “Down” and watching puppies play. We work on eliminating unwanted behaviours such as biting and jumping through positive behavioural methods. We teach how to deal with fearfulness using positive desensitisation methods. We facilitate social exposure to other puppies and humans. We like to set up situations in which the puppies are handled in a number of ways, by a variety of people. At the end of the course our aim is to have helped create emotionally and socially responsive and robust puppies.” Julie said. If you would like to know more about puppy training through New Lambton Vet Clinic contact them at the new location off Lambton Rd Broadmeadow on 4952 8809 or go to www.newlambtonvets.com.au or contact Barkers in Balance on 0459 574 428 or go to www.barkersinbalance.com.au

Advice on strains and sprains from your local pharmacy

with Danielle Miller, Pharmacist from

Elder Street Pharmacy

With the winter sport season approaching, and training starting for some, it comes time to refresh ourselves on the best treatments for those pesky sports injuries of strains and sprains. A strain is an injury to a muscle

or tendon, such as the calf or hamstring, whereas a sprain is a tear in the ligament or damage to the joint capsule itself e.g.: ankles and wrists. Symptoms of sprains and strains include pain, swelling, stiffness, restricted mobility and loss of power in the affected area. These kind of injuries can take anywhere between 2 and 12 weeks to heal, depending on where is injured, the age of the patient, their general health and of course the treatment the injury receives, which is why we want to get it right! First aid for strains follows the RICER protocol: REST the affected area ICE the area for 15 minutes every two hours for the first day after injury, then for 15 minutes every four hours the day after. COMPRESS or bandage the affected area firmly, extending the

bandaging above and below the affected region ELEVATE the injured site above heart level when practical REPEAT for 48 hours Things to avoid are more exercise or sports, heat packs or rubs, massage and alcohol which can all exacerbate the swelling in the area. Pain reliving medications can be useful for acute pain, as can anti-inflammatory creams and gels. If pain or swelling persists after a few days of treatment, it is recommended you see a doctor or physiotherapist for further assessment of the injury. Remember the best way to treat an injury is to prevent it! Appropriate warm up and cool down, use of protective equipment and suitable footwear are the basis for injury prevention.

Australian incomes underinsured Life stage – Early career

by Gary Croese B.Bus (Acc.), CPA, FPS. Principal of GC Accountants

Insurance Priorities for all ages Research indicates that the majority of Australians are under-insured. Rice Warner’s recent report, for instance, said the median level of life insurance for working-age Australians covered only 42% of the financial needs (to maintain their standard of living) of remaining family members.

This is a wonderfully busy and social period, but if you’re unable to work for two or three months, perhaps due to an injury on or an illness, how will you pay the rent or save for that house deposit? Income protection is essential, plus a choice of TPD or Trauma insurance is also recommended. A financial adviser can help figure out exact levels of cover required. Income protection – covers up to 75% of current income. Total & permanent disability (TPD) – if you are permanently disabled and cannot work again the insurer pays a pre-agreed lump sum. Trauma insurance – if you are diagnosed with a particular life threatening illness covered by the policy, the insurer pays a lump sum.

Life stage – Family with young children Priorities have shifted. You’re making your way up the work ladder but the pressures of a mortgage, a second car and young children are being felt. What if you were suddenly unable to work? What if an accident or illness meant you were no longer around to help care for your family? How would mortgage repayments and school fees be met? Suggestions for this period include a selection from the previous three covers as well as Life insurance. Life insurance – pays your beneficiaries a lump sum if you were to pass away.

You likely have a sense of financial comfort. You’re feeling healthy but are aware that you’re entering an age bracket in which heart attacks, strokes and other serious illnesses can strike. This is arguably the most important stage for personal insurance, whilst building a retirement fund, paying down a mortgage and supporting children. Life insurance should be the priority.

Burn that bunny off by Anne-Marie Adams, owner/ personal trainer at Inspirational Group & Fitness Training Easter is done and dusted for another year. You ate the chocolate didn’t you? Come on, tell me the truth You know how I know? I’ll tell you a secret…..so did I. Now I know that sounds weird coming from a personal trainer but I won’t lie to you. Do I feel bad about it? Short answer….No. I only have Easter eggs at Easter (so none before Easter like the shops tempt you to do) and I watch how many I eat. The reason why….I know how long it takes to work these little treats off and I find if you do not eat it all the time you enjoy it that much more. This is why I can indulge a little without feeling guilty. You only live once and special occasions like this need to be enjoyed. And the good news is there is some great health benefits associated with eating chocolate. Eating the 70% cocoa dark chocolate will up your antioxidants. Another bit of good news is according to Leeds University chocolate is high in polyphenols which can prevent heart disease and help you live longer. The key to incorporating chocolate into a healthy lifestyle as with everything is moderation. So whether you indulged a little or a lot over Easter below are some great ways to start burning off those calories that are hidden in all that Easter goodness. If you indulged in a Lindt 50g bunny, you would have consumed around 272 calories. Here are six ways to burn off these off* ... (note I said 50g not the 1kg version, you will have work a bit harder to burn that off!) You could spend 71 minutes cleaning the house OR work on the cross trainer at a moderate pace for 32 minutes OR dance around your living room for 56 minutes OR spend 63 minutes in the garden OR swim for 36 minutes OR walk the dog for 89 minutes *Calculations are based on an 80kg woman No matter how much chocolate you ate over Easter I hope you had a good one and for anyone heading off on holidays I hope you have a wonderful and safe trip. So until next time…..Love life, dream big and become the inspiration Anne-Marie

by Mr Martin Rosser At Lambton High School, our school vision is to produce students who are independent thinkers, innovative risk takers, creative, resilient, empathetic, problem solvers and life-long learners: where the educational experience is holistic, real world, diverse and relevant to the 21st century. Consequently, we have introduced school-based Innovation Projects to provide teachers with the opportunity to design creative, unique and collaborative projects that add further depth and quality to the education offered to students. 1. Flipped Classroom - this is a pedagogical model in which the typical lesson and homework elements of a course are reversed. Short video lectures are viewed by students at home before the class session, while class time is devoted to applying knowledge. 2. Creating the Perfect Feedback Loop - the project seeks to measure and maximise the effectiveness of written feedback on summative tasks. When tasks are returned to students often they see their mark and do not engage with the written feedback. This project is intended to measure the effectiveness of providing feedback with which the students have actively engaged and improve the nature of feedback that teachers are providing to individual students by implementing a pilot project. 3. Growth Mindset - research has shown that the mindsets that students hold about their intellectual ability can have a significant impact on their motivation and success in school. When students have a growth mindset, in which they believe that intelligence can be developed they seek more learning goals and challenges, see effort as a positive behaviour, are more resilient in the face of failure, and achieve higher academic outcomes. A number of studies have demonstrated that interventions can influence a student’s mindset and enhance academic outcomes. Martin Rosser - Principal


Can I make a will after I lose capacity? by

Chris Hill-Smith of Appleton Law, Lambton

A person must have testamentary capacity to be able to make a valid will. Making a will is not something which can be delegated to another person through for example the use of a power of attorney or enduring guardianship. The reasons why a person may not have the testamentary capacity to make a will include that they may be a child or because they are suffering from a condition which impacts on their ability to exercise a sound mind. Such a condition may be because of a mental health condition or illness, a physical illness, advanced age or because of the effects or influence of medication, alcohol or drugs. In the case of a child if the incapacity is only because of their age, when they reach adulthood they can make a valid will. If the incapacity is caused by an inability to exercise a sound mind, the condition may be permanent or it may be transient or, though the condition is ongoing the person may have lucid moments at which times they may recover capacity. Once the condition that causes the incapacity passes or during a period of lucidity, the person can of course make a valid will. Under succession legislation a court may authorise a will to be made, revoked or altered on behalf of a person, including a child who lacks testamentary capacity. In a case heard by the NSW Supreme Court under the new legislation the judge described three general types of incapacity which can arise in these types of matters. Firstly, “lost capacity” cases, where for example a person loses capacity through accident or illness and therefore cannot make a will. Secondly, “nil capacity” cases where the person has never had capacity. The third category were called “pre-empted capacity” matters where for example a child suffers

a serious injury and receives a large damages award. If an application is made to the court to authorise a will for a person falling within the above general categories or for a person who lacks testamentary capacity, the court will make, alter or revoke a will for the person on the terms that a will would be likely to have been made by the person if he or she had testamentary capacity. If the person through whatever reason does not have a valid will their estate will be administered under the intestacy rules and the results of that are often not what the person would have wished if they had decided. That is why it is important to have a will prepared so that you can be comfortable that your assets will be given to those who you wish to inherit.

Do you know that old saying “You are what you eat�? The same is true for our much-loved pets. What goes into their bodies from the time they are puppies through to old age sets the foundations for their health and longevity. We are all healthier when we eat a balanced diet and the same is true for our furry family members. Many of the pet foods currently available are unfortunately of poor quality. Most are loaded with fatty fillers and can be comprised of high levels of rice. These can lead to weight gain, poor muscle quality and high levels of fat inside the body. So how can we choose the best food for our pets? Like with most things in life, we get what we pay for. Although the premium food may seem expensive, we are paying for high quality and the research behind it. The premium foods are made from good quality ingredients, are a complete balanced diet and promote wellbeing. By feeding a premium diet you will notice increased muscle mass, a softer, shinier coat and improved weight management. You will also actually feed less as the food is more digestible and will therefore produce smaller, well-formed faeces. Sadly, veterinarians see many diseases and issues that can be prevented with proper nutrition. Some of these issues include: growth/bone deformities in puppies, poor coat health and skin issues, obesity, bladder stones, diabetes, thyroid disease, heart disease, kidney disease and much more. Visit Greencross Vets Lambton or your local Petbarn store and have a chat about nutrition today. We want to help you choose the right food for your best friend!


Mind matters by Dr Stuart Edser PhD. MAPS. MCCOUNP. MASCH. Principal Psychologist at Newcastle Psychology & Health

Coping with a cancer diagnosis

Receiving those dreaded words from your doctor, “it’s cancer”, can be one of the scariest experiences we can have. Just the words send chills down our spine. But these days, if the doctors can identify cancer early enough, there is very often much that they can do with the hope of getting you through it. But how do we fare psychologically? It is not uncommon after first receiving a cancer diagnosis for an individual to fall into a bit of a heap for a few weeks. They can shut down, isolate themselves, feel numb and overwhelmed. They don’t know what to do or what to think. But after a time, not uncommonly, they will pick themselves up and begin to just unconsciously fall back into the coping style that they usually use when facing stressful situations. A person’s coping style will often determine how the individual will deal with their cancer, their doctor, their treatment, their mental health and their relationships. In other words, cancer coping style is a big deal. There are five coping styles typically that people fall into: helpless/hopeless, anxious preoccupation, stoic soldiering on, denial, and fighting spirit. Each one has its advantages and disadvantages for both the individual involved and the clinicians working with them. Psychologists working in this area generally try to help cancer patients reduce anxiety and depression, clarify their personal autonomy in dealing with the diagnosis their own way, help to open up communication channels between the individual and families and friends, and teach deep relaxation, meditation and self-hypnosis skills. When successful psychological treatment occurs alongside what the doctors are doing, it can often help to smooth the way a little on what can be a bumpy and scary ride and in some cases even help with the healing process. - Stuart Edser
