CELEBRATING A LOCAL BUSINESS ICON For anyone under the age of 25 in Mount Gambier, the large vacant building opposite Redgum and The Book Place and next to the South Aussie Hotel, used to house Fidler & Webb – an iconic store that was central to the economic development of this region courtesy of founding partners Caleb Fidler and Samuel Webb. It is a story that now spans 150 years and the Mount Gambier History Group is set to unveil that story in a not-to-be-missed exhibition opening this Sunday and running until October 27. The exhibition will capture the history of the men – Caleb Fidler and Samuel Webb – as well as the progression of the business and the role it played in the development of Mount Gambier and surrounding

districts. It has been an exhibition two years in the making and one of the biggest the group has put together in recent times. Group members have trawled through old ledgers and wage records and all sorts of historical records to put together a stunning picture of Fidler & Webb. “There’s not many people in Mount Gambier that don’t have some sort of connection to Fidler & Webb,” Mount Gambier History Group member Aileen Clarke said. The exhibition will trace the story back to Caleb and Samuel leaving England on this unknown adventure. Caleb arrived in 1851, basically boarding a ship at Plymouth hours after marrying his wife Phoebe, and Samuel followed in 1854, with his brother Thomas, although Mount Gambier was not their first home in Australia. This exhibition will not only be a chance for people to walk down memory lane, with the overhead money carrier one of the store’s most enduring memories, but also to learn many aspects of the story that are not as well known. “They didn’t just have a store in Mount Gambier but Millicent and Naracoorte as well,” Aileen said. “We have also researched their homes that are still here in Mount Gambier,” group member Margaret Brown said, her own family’s history in the region dating back to when Caleb and Samuel set up Fidler & Webb in Mount Gambier. Those homes are Pine Hall and Lambert Lodge. The fascination with the story is also due to the name Fidler & Webb survived for so long. “Not too many


business names survive like that,” Aileen said. In fact, one of the early slogans of the business sums up the 150 year story perfectly – “the business that grew and prospered with the district”. And it wasn’t just about lining their own pockets – the duo was intimately involved in the community through the church and local government, as well as playing a role in the establishment of the cheese factory. When Caleb and Samuel arrived, Commercial Street was a mud track, and the store did have a few homes before securing the Commercial Street site on the corner of Ferrers Street – that has in 1862, four years after the business opened in 1858. It was a business that even to the day it closed housed an eclectic group of products. In the early days there was seeds and gardening needs, the dressmaking and tailoring services, crockery and even gelignite. “In the early days they imported most of their things so they took a long time to come in,” Aileen said. Touching base with a | 04

number of former employees has also helped put together the exhibition. “Some of them worked there for 30 and 40 years,” Margaret said. “We have met three people who between them had 146 years of experience working at Fidler & Webb.” The exhibition will include old records, photos and also three shop windows recreated and it promises to capture the interest of the entire community. The very active Fidler & Webb social club has also provided plenty of fodder for the anniversary exhibition. The official opening is at 11asm on Sunday, October 15, by Mount Gambier History Group patron Jim Galpin and the exhibition will be open weekdays from 10am-4pm and weekends, 10am to 3pm in its Main Corner home on the King’s Floor and Balcony. Special extended viewing hours will be available on Thursday, October 19, when the exhibition will be open from 10am until 8pm.

The work of the region’s young and budding artists will be showcased in an upcoming exhibition at the Portland Arts Centre. The Portland Arts Centre will once again host the annual VCE Exhibition, offering local VCE students the chance to display their pieces in a professional setting. An opening event will take place on Tuesday, October 17, from 5.30pm to officially unveil the collection for viewing to the general public. Glenelg Shire Council Arts and Culture Manager Susie Lyons said the exhibition was a staple on the Arts Centre events calendar and welcomed it back again for another year. “The Portland Arts Centre is pleased to once again host the VCE Exhibition; this event is a unique chance for art students from all corners of the shire to come together and celebrate the love of art,” she said. “The exhibition will include work from art and studio art students from Bayview College, Portland Secondary College, Heywood and District Secondary College and Casterton Secondary College. Ms Lyons also commended the quality of the submissions received for the exhibition. “The exhibition is always notable for the impressive nature of the artwork and for the diversity of the subject matter and media on display. This year has proved to be once again be no different. I encourage all community members to take the time to come along and see the creative talent of our region’s future artists.” To register your attendance for the VCE Exhibition Official Opening event please contact the Portland Arts Centre by calling (03)5522 2263 or emailing The exhibition will be on display from October 17 – November 10.

LOCAL SURVIVOR ON STATE STAGE Mount Gambier’s Melena Roughana (left) was the White Lantern Ambassador at the Adelaide Light the Night event on Friday night. Not only did Melena share her story with that crowd and with the NIne News Adelaide audience the day before, but niece Ellyana Sims (right), sang Lena’s Song at the event - a track from her debut EP, written when her auntie was diagnosed. Light the Night events were held Australia wide including in Mount Gambier.

KEITH TAKES OUT STATE AWARD The Keith community should be proud this week - they were the sole Limestone Coast winner at last Friday night’s Brand SA Regional Showcase Awards. The town took out the Community Award for its Diesel & Dirt Derby. The Keith event is one of the most action-packed events regional South Australia has to offer, attracting 10,000 people to enjoy tractor pulls, buggy racing, a header demolition derby, and the Australian Jet Sprint Championship. The jetboat sprint circuit is dug by hand – one of many displays of passion from the event’s organisers who first launched the diesel and dirt derby as a way to transform the Keith and Tintinara District Show. The now award winning event returns next year on March 24. The Brand SA Regional Showcase Awards were presented in Whyalla last Friday night. ACTION PHOTO COURTESY OF ALAN MORCOM

VINTAGE TRUCK DISPLAY NOT TO BE MISSED It has been a decade since Mount Gambier last hosted an Historic Commercial Vehicle Club (South Australian Branch) Rally but it will have been worth the wait for vintage truck lovers with the 2017 event, which kicks off this Thursday, set to see some of the rarest and most lovingly restored vehicles from across Australia. Mount Gambier’s Murray Langford has devoted his life to trucks and his passion has spearheaded this six day event, with a display at Hastings Cunningham Reserve, this Saturday, from 8.30am-11am, the best time for the general public to come and check out these incredible machines and find out their history from their dedicated owners. “This is a trucking town and

always has been,” Murray said. And he should know – he has not only restored a number of trucks in his own

collection, which is the envy of truck lovers across the world, but he is also called upon to complete restorations for other truck owners – such is the quality of his work. “There will be a huge range of trucks from small farm trucks to prime movers,” Murray said. The locally based aficionado will have four of his vehicles on display and most of this week has been spent sprucing them up for the big display on Saturday. The rally kicks off on Thursday with general yours of Mount Gambier, while Friday will see a visit to Terry Buckley’s Mingbool potato farm, and Merrett’s tractor and bulldozer graveyard. Saturday’s public display will be followed by a visit to Mount Gambier’s limestone quarries, while Sunday will see the vintage truck lovers head to Yallum Park, Penola and the Nangwarry Forestry & Logging Museum. Monday, October 16, will see a visit to Millicent and its much-heralded museum, as well as a visit to the Davies property, while Tuesday will see the visitors head to de Bruin Engineering and to Port MacDonnell to see the Feast family’s car collection. Organisers are expecting 70 vehicles and around 120 people. “It is great for the town to have something like this,” Murray said. “And this is a great chance for people to not just see the trucks but to talk to the owners about their history.” The visitors will also get a chance to see Murray’s latest restoration project – a 1950s Diamond T. “There is only about 20 of these left in the world,” Murray said. He bought it from the United States and has about a further 12 months of work to officially add it to his collection. And speaking of rare, Murray will have his GMC semi trailer on display for this rally – it is the only one left in the world and one of around 70 reasons you should head to Hastings Cunningham Reserve this Saturday between 8.30am and 11am to see the vintage truck display.


NANGWARRY TOWN MEETING The community of Nangwarry is invited to contribute their ideas about the future of its township through the development of a 10 year plan for the town. Wattle Range Council representatives will facilitate a meeting on Wednesday, October 18, in the Nangwarry Community Hall, the aim of which will be to gather information for inclusion in a plan to be driven by the community. “Developing a plan will enable the community to present their future vision for the town and to identify strategic projects and initiatives to be progressed over the ensuing ten years,” Director Development Services Steve Chapple said. “Community Town Plans have been completed for the townships of Penola, Coonawarra and Millicent, with Rendelsham, Beachport and Southend currently in draft stages. The focus is now on the community of Nangwarry.” Running from 6pm to 8.30pm this initial meeting will help develop a future vision statement for the township; to highlight what makes Nangwarry unique; and to identify potential opportunities for the future. Anyone seeking further information is encouraged to contact council on (08)8733 0900 or visit www.

INAUGURAL AGED CARE EXPO PART OF THE 2017 CELEBRATE SENIORS PROGRAM An Aged Care Expo will be held in Millicent later this month as part of Council’s program of events to Celebrate Seniors. The inaugural event will be held on Wednesday, October 18, and will provide the community with information about a range of services and health care opportunities available to Seniors in the region. With free admission from 10am until 2pm, this Expo is a must see for Seniors seeking a wider understanding of what is available in their community to assist them. It will also provide an excellent opportunity for those working in health or aged care to update their current

knowledge and to browse amongst the many services and organisations represented at the expo. The Council on the Ageing (COTA) is providing two 45 minute sessions in the Millicent Gallery, at 11am and 1pm. These information sessions will provide a valuable insight into the topics of ‘Maximising My Independence’ and ‘Moving Right Along - Older Drivers and Safer Vehicles’. Wattle Range CEO, Ben Gower said the Aged Care Expo will provide a unique opportunity for people of all ages to be better informed on the wide range of assistance options available to them in our community. Health Care Providers or Services in the region who may wish to be part of this Expo are welcome to contact Catarina Santos, Environmental Gambier Hospital building which stood abandoned with many broken windows for years, until it was finally demolished in 2013. The Broken Windows project was one of several Children’s Perspectives of our City projects in which local early child education groups have particpated.

CHILDREN’S ARTWORK UNVEILED The Mount Gambier Child Care Centre today made a special presentation of images to the City of Mount Gambier Mayor Andrew Lee as part of the Broken Windows project. A series of three creative images were developed by children reflecting on their interpretation of the old Mount

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN CAMBODIA It takes a lot to move Paul Chuck to tears but the sight of more than 300 children and 100 parents lining the dirt road to the Oromjeach Primary School, in Cambodia, eagerly awaiting the essential school supplies and food, he, and wife Marita, had in tow did just that. A previous trip to Cambodia, where they visited former Mount Gambier based friend Ken Thompson, and his wife Nary, opened Paul and Marita’s eyes to poverty like they had never seen before and they were determined to do something about it. “I know people talk about the poverty and problems we have in Australia but we have welfare and services and they (Cambodia) do not – that’s the

difference,” Marita said. The children are on the verge of starving and wear tattered clothes, usually no underwear, and they attend a run down school with a couple of old whiteboards and no real supplies or equipment. But for the children, education is the key. “If even a handful of these kids can get through school, get educated and get a job then it will be a good thing,” Paul said. And that’s where the fundraising came in, with Paul and Marita basically approaching family friends and local business, as well as some proceeds from daughter Justine Jennings’ debut children’s book, money was raised and then Paul and Marita went to Cambodia, bought the supplies and headed to

the school to hand everything out. “We don’t actually need big donations, just a little bit helps heaps,” Paul said.

“There is no middle man here. We’ve done all the exchanging ourselves. Too much gets lost in administration and kids who need it get very little which is why we are doing this ourselves.” They have also made the all important contact with the town elder and head monk, who is right behind their project, as well as the invaluable assistance of Nary, as interpreter and both Marita and Paul are committed to ongoing support for the school. “We were never going to just breeze in there with these people and then drop them,” Paul said. “We are looking to provide ongoing support.” Even this initial trip to handover the school supplies exceeded their original hopes and target and they were able to hand over a pack containing new school uniform, two pairs of underwear, a pair of thongs and school stationery. Just as importantly, sporting equipment was also handed over and educational wall posters and books. “Up until this day, the children

had never had anything given to them.” Marita said. “There are no birthdays or Christmas celebrations or toys to play with. The town elder told us the children had never had anything to play with.” A pregnant cow has also been delivered to the school and will provide ongoing income through the sale of calves. Paul and Marita also handed out 400 bread rolls and a small milk from a local bakery. “We just wanted people to know what had happened with their kind donations and the difference it will make,” Marita said. The school packs went to children who live in a community where one meal a day is the norm, and that is plain rice, maybe with some spice, but certainly not supplemented with vegetables or meat. “They have no power, no water, no toilets,” Marita said. The dilapidated school facilities are also on Marita and Paul’s radar and they hope to continue to raise funds so the classrooms can be painted and the floors re-cemented. A vegetable garden is also set to be established at the school with the children set to learn how to grow the vegetables and then take them home for their families. Any ongoing donations of children’s summer clothing, and toys in good conditions would be greatly appreciated and you can contact Marita at maritachuck@ or Paul at paul@gebhardts. to find out how you can help or to drop off a donation. “Without the community’s help this could not have happened,” Marita said. “Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.” The funds from Justine’s self published Amazon Kindle book Little People Can Change The World, that is still available, continue to go towards the Cambodian project.

GETTING BACK TO NATURE Spend a day exploring the forest these school holidays at Natural Resources South East’s Cubbies at the Forest event at Mount Burr, Mount Gambier or Keith. NRM education coordinator Vanessa Freebairn said last year’s cubby building event at the Valley Lake Conservation Park was well received by local families. “We had such a good response at last year’s event, with more than 300 people attending, so we decided to expand with additional events in Wattle Range and Tatiara District Council,” Ms Freebairn said. “A lot of our parks and reserves really are hidden treasures, and most are free to enter. As part of this year’s Nature Play Festival, we want to create a space where families can be away from screens, connecting with each other and with nature.” In addition to cubby building available all day, the event will host bush craft stations, face painting, a mud pit and storytelling sessions. “We encourage families to pack a picnic lunch, and there will be a free sausage sizzle provided by Millicent Lions on the day if you would like an extra bite to eat,” Ms Freebairn said. “Forestry SA will also be at the event with a firefighting vehicle for the kids to have a close look at.” Just a 12-minute drive from Millicent, off Golf Course Road, Kay Native Forest Reserve will provide the setting for the much anticipated Cubbies at the Forest event on Wednesday, from 10am to 2pm. Events will also be held at Valley Lake Conservation Park in Mount Gambier on Tuesday, from 10am to 2pm, and Mount Monster Conservation Park, near Keith, on Thursday, 10am to 2pm.

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - EAST MEETS ROBBIE.. By ROBBIE TANSEL As I write this I’m sitting in a hotel room in Xi’An, China. For those of you wondering where is Xi’An, you

are ignorant westerners who need to really start to broaden your horizons. This is one of the biggest cities of the

most populated country on Earth, who happen to also be one of our most important trade partners and I won’t tell you...because I don’t know either. I’ve honestly got no idea where I am at the moment. You’ve got Google maps so have a look. I don’t want to alarm anyone, but China is not at all like they made it appear in Chinese restaurants and Jackie Chan movies. There is no carpet on the walls and no one has jumped off a roof or had a kick ass fight. So why am I here? I can’t really be sure. I think largely I’m here to see if I can survive for a couple of weeks in a country that has no food that normally makes up my regular diet and where no one speaks English. After one day I’d say I’m not going particularly well. I’m possibly the worst eater in the



world. I’ve survived for thirty or so years on potato products, chips, roast potatoes, potato bake, baked potato or even kartoffelpuffer. People who know me will be absolutely amazed that I ate two dumplings tonight. I would say that I essentially have a food phobia and I will be bringing up new food before I even put it in my mouth normally. So for me to eat two dumplings is nothing short of a miracle. Boy I’d like some chips right now though. My language difficulties began pretty quickly. We flew from Melbourne to Guangzhou before transferring to another flight to Xi’An. While in the Guangzhou airport I decided I could probably do with a bottle of water. I found bottles of water for sale at

a restaurant in the airport. I got it out of the fridge, making my first attempt to convert the price from yuan to Australian dollars in my head. When I put the bottle of water on the counter, the woman chatted away at me in Chinese, which I’m sure she was only doing optimistically. She then chatted away at one of the other staff members sounding quite irritated. It seemed quite clear that she wasn’t happy that she was having to sell me the bottle of water. After talking with the other lady, I think she simply decided it was going to be too difficult to try to explain the issue to me so she simply took my money and sold me the water. I have three theories of what the problem may have been. Theory one is she’d already balanced the till. People hate having to give change when they’ve already counted up the money for the night to be balanced. I was paying for an eight yuan bottle of water with a one hundred yuan note (because I’m a high roller in China). This required quite a bit of change (92 yuan to be exact; do I have to spoon feed you people all the time? The currency is different but the Maths is still the same!) Theory two is that the restaurant only sold water to people who were purchasing meals at the restaurant. Seems a bit silly but businesses don’t always make good decisions. Theory three is there are bitches in every country of the world, even China. I think it’s pretty lucky that China manufactures nearly everything that is made in the world today. It’s going to be pretty handy not having to freight parts from somewhere else for all of the car accidents that surely happen here. I’ve never seen driving like this and I’ve driven around the McDonalds roundabout, often at the same time as Victorians. I believe there are road rules here, but I’m not sure that the government has gotten around to letting everyone know yet. Or they think it would just be more fun to all try to go at the same time. Think about it, there is something kind of thrilling about that idea. So far I’ve seen about ten accidents and about thirty near misses. I think the Chinese government could get rich if they started taxing people for using their horns. I’m pretty sure my bus driver wore his out today. Anyway, if you’ve worked out where I am, please email me at robbietansel@

It must be nevertheless, as the blossom trees and plants all around us are telling us so!! The wonderful thing about spring is the awakening of many of the trees, shrubs and myriad plants from their dormancy or resting period over winter.

daily as far across as Geelong, Horsham and beyond in addition to us sending plants and trees right across Australia. Last long weekend we sold heaps of weeping flowering cherries which are all looking amazing in full bloom, especially the white with double pink just bursting in to flower as I write and we have just brought another load of magnolias in from the growing area, in full flower and bud, with the new dwarf series being extremely popular for smaller gardens and pots .Spring is also seedling time, with a vast array of flowering seedlings with bulk trays of petunias and marigolds on special and tomato plants are coming out of our ears with all sorts of specials available for spring!! I think we could safely say that tomato planting time is here and that the weather can only go forward from here. Fruit and nut trees are also in blossom with some of our almond trees bearing nuts already and masses of flowers on the avocadoes

so there should be some good crops on even our smaller trees this season. Half price avocadoes and assorted fruit and nut trees ends on Sunday 22nd October unless sold out prior. Rose are in full swing too, with some flowering already despite the cold winter and spring and we have some half price bush roses available for those wishing to pick up a last minute bargain!Spring weather has also brought many of us outdoors to enjoy the sunshine and even dine outside!

I’m proud to work for OneFortyOne.

IN HER OWN WORDS - CAROLYN JONES Just before Christmas last year Carolyn Jones and her family were completely blindsided by her breast cancer diagnosis. Three weeks before what is usually a time of celebration, the Jones family was facing the upheaval, trauma and uncertainty that a cancer diagnosis brings. Carolyn knew there was a lump in her breast for about six months but with a history of cists, and as she was feeling fine, she had no sense of urgency. A trip to the GP yielded a referral to a specialist who saw Carolyn the same week during his visit to Naracoorte and that kickstarted whirlwind of two operations, a course of chemotherapy and then radiation treatment. In fact, Carolyn has only recently received the all clear, and is now setting up continuing her recovery and getting her life back. That week of her diagnosis is still fresh in Carolyn’s mind. “My GP thought it might only be a cist but erred on the side of caution and said it would be best if I saw the specialist,” Carolyn said. “Even when I went to make the appointment with the specialist I was honestly in no hurry but he was pretty keen to see me.” That was Carolyn’s first clue that she was in for bad news. “I was OK after the GP referred me and started to feel a bit worried when the specialist wanted to see me urgently and then by the time we were driving to Naracoorte

I was distraught,” she said. The specialist took a biopsy and his fears were confirmed – the lump in Carolyn’s breast was cancerous. The 11mm lump then had to be removed via a lumpectomy where lymph nodes were also taken to see if the cancer had spread. There was cancer on one of those lymph nodes and so Carolyn went back under the knife to have all the lymph nodes removed. “The Friday before Christmas I found out the rest of them were clear which, in the circumstances, was some good news,” Carolyn said. She then had to wait to hear from the chemotherapy doctor and that appointment was early January with her treatment, which she was able to have in Mount Gambier, beginning the middle of that month. She went through eight rounds every three weeks and admits her first round was diabolical in terms of the nausea and her general health. “Everyone was great, though,” Carolyn said. “There was always someone to talk to and no question was considered silly. They were able to adjust my anti-nausea medication and that certainly helped and the staff there made what is a tough time much easier. Sometimes my state of mind going into chemo wasn’t good but they always supported me.” The day she shaved her head because of hair loss is another day that really sticks in her

WAYS TO REDUCE BREAST CANCER RISK The rate of breast cancer is increasing each year as more women are diagnosed with the disease. Breast cancer has many possible causes and each woman has a variety of risk factors that can increase her chance of developing breast cancer, some of which she has no control over. But there are many risk factors can be influenced by choices made during her lifetime. Making healthy choices can reduce your likelihood of breast cancer and many other diseases.

mind. “My husband and daughter helped me,” Carolyn said. “I was fine with it when we were doing it and it was something I knew was going to happen but the next day I was down about that but in the end you know you have to what it takes. You can’t just wait for cancer to get you, you

need to do something about it.” Carolyn knows how lucky she is, though. Her cancer was Grade 3 and fast growing and if she had not received treatment when she did, this story might not have the same happy ending. cont. page 36

Reduce your alcohol intake Research has shown a strong link between alcohol and the risk of developing breast cancer, and breast cancer returning. To reduce your risk of breast cancer, try to limit your alcohol intake to two standard drinks a day.

Maintain a healthy weight throughout your life Women who put on a lot of weight in adulthood, particularly after menopause, may have a higher risk of breast cancer.

Be active Studies have shown that regular exercise reduces the risk of breast cancer. The exact amount of physical activity needed to reduce your risk is not yet clear but studies show that moderate exercise, like a brisk walk, can be enough to reduce your cancer risk. And the more you do, the greater the benefits. | 34

IN HER OWN WORDS - CAROLYN JONES FROM PAGE 34 The chemotherapy treatment was followed by four weeks of treatment at Warrnambool’s South West Regional Cancer Centre – the treatment facility set up through Peter’s Project by 2017 Australian Local Hero of the Year, Vicki Jellie. “The centre is amazing and to have somewhere so close to home was great,” Carolyn said. “I had a choice between there and Adelaide and it was so convenient to be able to go to Warrnambool. The staff there are amazing as well.” That treatment finished early August and was followed by the all clear from her doctor. Carolyn will now have annual check ups with her specialist every December and check ups with her radiation oncologist every June. With no family history of any cancer, let alone breast cancer, Carolyn said the diagnosis was a shock but through the support of her family and close friends she was able to deal with the diagnosis and focus on her treatment. “We were always as honest as we could be with the kids right from the start,” Carolyn said. “We wanted them to know what was going on without scaring them – it was a balancing act. Sometimes we didn’t know ourselves to be able to answer any questions they had.” She shares three children with husband Simon – Kyle (16); Ella (13) and

Rex (10). Her daughter Ella had great support through a school friend, who had sadly lost her own mother to cancer, and Carolyn was humbled by how Simon and the kids rallied during this tough time. “They really helped around the house,” she said. “Simon would get them moving at night and they helped out with everything. They knew when it was chemo week and that mum was going to be struggling so they just did more. They were fantastic and all dealt with it really well.” The hairdresser and school SSO also applied the honesty system to dealing with clients and colleagues. “Mum was sorting out my appointment diary for me when I was diagnosed and asked what I wanted her to say to people,” Carolyn said. “I said to tell them I had breast cancer.” Carolyn was overwhelmed by the support from close friends as well. “I had one friend who had all my chemo appointments in her diary so she would always send me a text message on those days to say she was thinking of me,” she said. “All those little things meant so much. My family and friends respected when I needed some time on my own but were always there when I needed them there.” cont. page 38


Have children early and breastfeed if you can Although your choices about having children are made for a variety of reasons, not having children or having them later in life can increase your risk of developing breast cancer. And the reverse is true as well; having more children early in life and breastfeeding (12 months or more) provides longlasting protection from breast cancer.

Eat well A healthy diet, of at least five serves of vegetables and two serves of fruit a day, may help to reduce your risk of cancer. Research recommends sticking to low-fat dairy products, limiting how much red meat and sugar you eat to prevent increasing your risk of breast cancer.

Try not to stress There is no conclusive evidence that stress causes the initial development of breast cancer, however people under stress may develop certain behaviours, such as smoking, overeating, or drinking alcohol, which increase their risk for cancer. Avoid long-term use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) Many women use HRT to alleviate the symptoms of menopause and/ or osteoporosis, to boost female hormones estrogen, progesterone and levels that lower with age. However, there is evidence to suggest that using long-term use of HRT increases the risk of breast cancer and other health problems. However, once HRT use ends, the risk returns to normal levels. | 36


IN HER OWN WORDS - CAROLYN JONES FROM PAGE 36 Carolyn was also a recipient of a Helping Hand Bag – an initiative of the Mount Gambier Breast Cancer Awareness Group – and said that was a godsend. “I thought it would have a few discount vouchers in there,” Carolyn said. “But when I opened it in the car I was brought to tears. The generosity in terms of fuel, grocery and other substantial vouchers was amazing and so helpful in taking the pressure off.” Carolyn also received financial support from the Mount Gambier Cancer Support Group when she headed to Warrnambool for her radiation treatment, as well as the purchase of a wig, and has found both groups to be incredibly supportive, as well as the staff that worked with her over her treatment journey, including breast care nurse Margie Atwell and Julie Campbell. “You could ring them and talk to them whenever you wanted,” Carolyn said. Margie has, in fact, set up a small support group, which Carolyn is a part of for young mothers who have gone through a cancer fight, and Carolyn also appreciated the invitation to a Look Good Feel Good program. It was a friend’s wedding that saw Carolyn opt for a wig at one stage during her treatment. “It was supposed to be her day and I didn’t want it to be about me, I just wanted to blend in,” she said. There has been a celebration of her own with Carolyn celebrating her

40th birthday last month. “I have never been one to really worry about age but now I don’t care how old I get as Long as I get old,” she said. “I was 39 years old and diagnosed with this potentially deadly disease – it does change your perspective. But there is so much help out there and the medicine has come a long way.” Carolyn will be at this year’s Mount Gambier Breast Cancer Awareness Group cocktail party fundraiser. “I had always wanted to go (before my diagnosis) and never got around to it,” Carolyn said. “I said to mum – we have to go this year.” Carolyn is all too aware how much it can help people going through what she has been through to hear someone else’s story and know they are not alone and that is why – when asked – she is happy to share her journey. “It does make a difference to hear from someone who has been through it,” Carolyn said. “The support you get from family and friends is amazing but no one understands like someone who has been through the same thing.” Tickets for this Friday night’s Black & Pink Party are available from Commodore on the Park and Redgum Country. The $55 a head event included champagne on arrival, canapes, music from DJ Dave, a Redgum Country fashion parade and lucky door prizes, raffles and auction items.


Don’t smoke There have been a number of studies conducted to investigate the relationship between active cigarette smoking and breast cancer risk. A landmark study conducted in the USA in recent years demonstrated an association between active smoking and breast cancer risk, specifically for women who had started smoking at a very early age and before their first pregnancy. Smoking should always be avoided to prevent a range of diseases and to maximise overall health and wellbeing.

HOW RESEARCH IS HELPING THE FIGHT Breast cancer researchers are working towards saving lives through more effective treatments and earlier detection, and many are also seeking ways to better understand who is at risk and how breast cancer can be prevented in the first place. The National Breast Cancer Foundation funds research into breast cancer risk and prevention, such as: • Better knowledge of the impact of lifestyle on breast cancer risk • Understanding of risk in order to develop more effective treatments in future • Gaining a better understanding of the genetic and nongenetic factors that affect breast cancer, to enable better monitoring, detection and treatment of those at high risk of developing the disease Lifestyle factors, such as smoking, alcohol intake and lack of exercise are known to increase the risk of breast cancer and can be modified to help reduce the chances of getting the disease. However, while other major risk factors – such as being a woman, getting older, and having a family history of the disease – are essentially unchangeable, they do tell us important information about what might cause breast cancer, and provide clues as to who is most at risk and how we might prevent it occurring. | 38

LOCAL SPORT WRIGHT FAMILY DOMINATES THIS YEAR’S 150 CLASSIC Lake Bonney Sporting Clays held its 18th 150 Classic over two days last month, thanks, once again to the strong support and sponsorship from local business and club supporters. More than 150 shooters took part in the weekend event, coming from across South Australia and interstate. Competitors lined up for 100 targets on Saturday and 50 on Sunday, with two five stand courses, set up by Herb Whitehead, and his hardworking group of volunteers. Kongorong shooter Chris Wright had a very successful weekend, winning High Gun on both days, as well as taking home the overall title. His son Declan also had a strong weekend, taking out the Sub Junior top awards over the weekend. Danny Bellinger finished one target behind Chris Wright, taking out the AA grade, with his mate Daniel Banning second overall in AA grade, with a shoot off seeing Joe Densley finishing third. Overall A grade prizes went to Tony Sellars, Gary Banning and Tom Weir. Mick Banning also represented the family on the winner’s podium with a second in B grade, while Victorian Mark Hogan came first and Gary Dangerfield third. Matt Collins won C grade convincingly with 91/150, followed by visitors Lionel Boyd and Todd Ingles. Veterans was tightly

contested by Burrungule members Neville Kent, who finished first, and Wayne Evans, second, while Neville Johnson came third. Regular competitor Kevin Dyson was outright winner in Super Veterans, followed by Toby Edwards and Greg Todd. Ladies saw Tasha Bellinger continue to live up to her exceptional talent with a 113/150 to finish on top, Jannette Densley second and a very pleased Renae Hunt, third. Visitor Josh Easdale took out Juniors being the only one to compete across the two days, with Mason Patzel and Matthew Sorella joining the junior competition on Sunday. The Sub Juniors are showing great improvement

every month with Shakielle Von Stanke chasing Declan Wright while Ethan Hellyer is not far behind those two. Shooting 150 over two days is a great effort for these young boys and their scores showed that they are getting better all the time. Herb Whitehead handed out three 25 badges on Saturday to Mark Fabris, Danny Belllinger and Jason Caldow, while the wind change on Sunday increased the difficulty of the targets and resulted in no perfect scores on the day. Above left - Overal 150 Classic winner Chris Wright.

BELLINGER HANDLES CONDITIONS BEST Occasional bursts of sunshine and showers together with high winds, played havoc with the targets at South East Field and game’s monthly sporting clay shoot at Burrungule Park. The Stuart Bowd Contracting/ Richmond Park Sheep stud/J.O Berkefeld 75 target event had 66 competitors nominate for the Old Style Fitasc event, over three courses, set by Ken Atkin and his crew. Lake Bonney’s Danny Bellinger mastered the tricky conditions to take out the Gambier Shooting Supplies High Gun with 70/75. AA Grade saw the experienced Ron Rhook cope well with the wind to win with 69/75, from Jamie Dunn, and Adelaide’s current

National veterans champion, Chris Ball, completing the podium in third. Craig Hill won A grade with 61/75, from Mick Banning, in second, with Greg Dawes, another visiting shooter from Adelaide, finished in third. Matt Crowe shot 55/75 to win B grade from the improving Ross Stevens and Ricki Kelly rounding out the places. Graham Fennell showed the other C graders a clean pair of heels to win by seven targets, with Matt Crook and Peter Beck taking out the minor placings. Wayne Evans reignited his season with a dominant 65/75 to win Veterans by five targets, from Neville Kent and Wayne Gurney. Kevin Dyson gave the Super Veterans a lesson on “how to shoot wind affected targets” to win by eight targets from another visitor from Adelaide, David Gagnon. Peter Klieve had a smooth run into third without his old adversary Peter Caskey. Tash Bellinger won Ladies by nine targets but snapping at her heels was the fast improving Janette Densley and Tamara VonStanke. Trap shooting specialist Willis Jenkins won juniors with 46/75 and Will Vickery mastered the tricky conditions to convincingly win Sub Juniors with 51/75 from developing youngsters Will Crook and Adam Kuhl.

SOUTH EAST TRIO EARN SELECTION It is as if the netball careers of former South East based players Mary Wilson, Maisie Nankivell and Sienna Allen are destined to follow the same script. The trio (pictured left after being part of the 2017 national championships winning South Australain 17 & Under team) have been team mates at the past two nationals, including this year’s 19 & Under SA team, and last week were named in a 15 player squad for Netball SA’s Australian National League team - the Southern Force. Allen, who has been recovering from injury for the past few months, is back running and hoping to hit the court in the next fortnight or so, while Wilson and Nankivell are coming off strong domestic seasons. Wilson and Allen made their names in Western Border circles, while Nankivell is a former Kowree Naracoorte Tatiara Netball Association star. The squad will have its first court session later this month, with the team announced in February next year. Coach Brian Lines, who has been to the South East before in his former life as an umpire, is excited to have seven new faces in the 2018 squad with Wilson and Allen two of those potential debutantes. Nankivell was part of the 2017 team that finished just outside the finals. | 44
