COVER • MAKING YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA WORK FOR YOU It’s a case where the statistics just don’t lie. Six out of 10 Australians regularly use facebook and one in five swear by Instagram. Whatever your views on social media, it is here to stay and it how the generations to come are set to communicate. But despite the rise of social media and its infiltration of our lives, so many businesses are yet to tap into the true potential of what is a marketing juggernaut. It allows you as a business to always contact current and potential customers. It is on people’s phones, tablets and work and home computers and, as such, allows you to reach your audience anytime of the day and night. Many businesses realise the impact social media could have – finding the time and having the expertise to maximise the benefits, is where things start going wrong. That’s where Kelly Sneath and the social media management team at Lifestyle1 comes in. Providing personal one on one service, they can create a social media presence for your business

every facebook and Instagram user is bombarded with every day. Kelly and the Lifestyle1 social media management team are also ensuring they are staying ahead of the game by attending training sessions and other professional development opportunities to ensure they are at the cutting edge of this ever-evolving technology. “We can take it off your hands,” social media management consultant Kelly Sneath said. “Our expertise can make sure you get the most of your social media. It makes sense to let people who are only concentrating on building strong social media presences to perform that role for you and your business.” Lifestyle1 also has an extensive data base and can help you target the market and demographic you most want to reach. “Your social media presence is all about building your brand, developing brand loyalty and increasing sales opportunities,” Kelly said. “As I’ve been heading around to local business, the message is so often the same – business owners get busy with the day to day running of the business and keeping their social media up to date ends up at the bottom of the pile.” LIFESTYLE1 Office 1/20 Penola Road Mount Gambier SA 5290 Ph: (08)8724 7111 www.lifestyle1.net Find us on facebook Social Media Management Kelly Sneath • Ph: 0418 801 601

“We did have a facebook page up and running but handing our social media over to Kelly and the team at Lifestyle1 has been one of the best decisions we’ve made. I was time poor and not creative, so our facebook posts were a bit hit and miss, but now they take care of everything. Kelly works closely with me to design the posts and who we want to target and then Lifestyle1 graphic designers create eye catching posts and we really have seen results. Whatever food or drink we post on facebook is always our biggest seller that day. We are now getting great results from our social media campaigns and I cannot recommend Kelly and the Lifestyle1 social media management team highly enough.” BECK LAURENSON TO GO GOURMET SANDWICH & EXPRESSO BAR


FUNDING WINDFALL BEING POURED INTO BAND DEVELOPMENT An almost $5000 windfall for the Mount Gambier City Band is set to be directed to the development of emerging conductors, as well as shoring up the band’s playing stocks. The band was one of 13 new community arts projects to be awarded part of a $153,000 funding pool courtesy of the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund. The Mount Gambier City Band is set to engage leading brass band conductor Walter Pope, from the Ararat City Band, over a six month period to work with potential new band leaders, as well as working with the overall development of the band, with a focus on its younger players. Mount Gambier City Band president Craig Wood said the development program had been made possible by the generous funding windfall. “Basically we are using it to t5rain emerging conductors,” Mr Wood said. “But we are opening it up to the community so anybody out there who is interested can get involved.” The

band already has six budding musical directors earmarked from within its own ranks to take part in the training, ranging from senior band members to some aspiring young conductors as well. A couple of the emerging band leaders are students from the James Morrison Academy. “They need some mentoring and training in the finer aspects of brass band conducting,” Mr Wood said. “It is great to see members of our band wanting to take that next step and be able to lead the band.” And Mr Pope will be able to provide that leadership and guidance in spades. A life member of the Victorian Bands’ League, Mr Pope started as a player in the Daylesford Band as an 11 year old. Tuba was his instrument of choice and by the age of 16 he was already deputy conductor of that band. He has played in and conducted a large number of bands during his musical career, including during his 17 years in the army, and he has also directed the

Victorian State Youth Brass Band. Starting next month, Mr Pope will visit Mount Gambier to work with the city band, as well as spending time with the Waawor Band – the band’s junior development ensemble. “It is about making sure the band is sustainable into the future,” Mr Wood said. “It is so important to bring local players through and that is what Mr Pope will help us do. Her is also going to help us with the structure of the junior development program.” Aside from some one off workshops, conducting development has never really been tackled by the band, which is why the six month mentorship from Mr Pope will be so invaluable. “He will focus on the harder aspects of leading a band,” Mr Wood said. “Selecting band music, preparing for competitions and concerts and refining their techniques,

including interpreting musical scores and getting them to sound as the composer intended.” The Mount Gambier City Band currently boasts two conductors – Graham Marks and Jarrod Harrison. The band’s historical links with Western Victoria led them to approaching Mr Pope to head up the conductor development program. Anyone interested in being involved should email Mr Wood at mountgambiercityband@ gmail.com The band is also looking for new players of any age or experience.

FEDERAL FUNDING WINDFALLS FOR COUNCIL ROAD UPGRADES Member for Barker Tony Pasin (pictured above) has welcomed additional funding of $40 million over two years for South Australia’s councils to help with critical upgrades of the state’s local road network. Limestone Coast councils will receive a total of $1,194,978 for the 2017/18 financial year as part of the two year package. “This will be welcome additional funding for the Limestone Coast to help improve local roads in the region,” said Mr Pasin. The Member for Barker said the supplementary funding was in addition to Coalition Government funding allocated to councils through the Financial Assistance Grants and Roads to Recovery program. “The extra $40 million is being distributed to every one of South Australia’s 68 Councils as well as five Aboriginal communities, via the State Government,” Mr Pasin said. “The Commonwealth Government has agreed that the payments will be fasttracked so that works can starts on road improvements as soon as possible. Each council will be able to use the money they get as they see fit, whether that is for new roads, increasing capacity on existing roads or for general safety improvements. By providing funding directly to councils, we are putting power back in their hands and giving them the ability to identify and prioritise the roads they need fixed. After all, they are best placed to know which roads need upgrades and which projects will have the best return to their community and local economy.” FUNDING ALLOCATION FOR 2017/18 Grant Diistrict Council $168,638 Kingston District C ouncil $125,781 Mount Gambier City Council $338,004 Naracoorte Lucindale Council $241,683 Robe District Council $54,198 Wattle Range Council $266,674

MAKING IT COUNT Nothing is carved in stone for Laura Gazzard in 2018 and beyond but the Tenison Woods College graduate has ensured one thing – the world is her oyster, courtesy of a region best ATAR of 98.75. The 18 year old topped her school’s and the Limestone Coast’s results and can now rest easy, knowing her options for further study are wide open. She has her heart set on studying in the science and medical fields and has already been accepted into a Medical Degree in Hobart and is awaiting news on a place in Adelaide, also studying medicine. But she knows from experience – older sister Emily, who Laura incidentally has eclipsed by a couple of points in the family ATAR standings, changed her field of study after completing her gap year. Laura is now looking at a fairly typical gap year – she will certainly find a job, as well as looking to sneak in some overseas travel. No matter what the ATAR that flashes up on screen, every Year 12 student is just relieved if they see a mark, that will allow them to pursue their chosen study and career, and also hoping it reflects their level of effort. “I was assuming I would get a half decent mark but you honestly never know, you can’t predict,” Laura said. “Exams are so much of your mark and you can walk away knowing you’ve done your best and answered most of the questions but knowing how they actually went is impossible to know for sure until you receive those results.” The days of rushing to the letterbox or post

Tenison Woods College principal David Mezinec & Limestone Coast dux Laura Gazzard office have been relegated to history and Laura planned to head online to check her 2017 results. In the end, that wasn’t necessary. “They were going to be posted at 8.30am and I decided just to sleep and then check them when I woke up,” Laura said. “I woke up to a phone call, it was from Mr Mezinec (Tenison Woods College principal).” She wasn’t even going to disturb her family in case they were sleeping in but they had heard her on the phone. “As soon as you see that mark, you realise it has all been worth it.”A self-proclaimed procrastinator, Laura said the key to her 2017 success was trying not to waste time. “In the end, I was happy that I had done everything I could and had done the best I could,” Laura said. “I also tried not to be too hard on myself if I did take a break.” Laura also looked to keep some balance in her life. She continued her netball commitments with Saints Netball Club, in the Mount Gambier Netball Association, and was rewarded with her first ever premiership, and she also had a regular gig at the South East Animal Welfare League. Tenison Woods College mandates a minimum of five hours of community work for students and for Laura that has Monday afternoons at the volunteer run animal shelter. “I liked it so much I kept going,” Laura said. Laura’s subjects were physics, chemistry, biology, English, the research project and the school mandated Integrated learning, which is a religion subject. She had previously completed specialist maths and maths

studies as a Year 11 student in 2016. Laura is grateful she had a front row seat to watching her older sister Emily go through the rigours of Year 12. “She (Emily) was a good mentor and she was able to give me a rough idea what you needed to do, as well as study tips.” Laura was in Year 10 when her sister navigated Year 12, before heading off the work in the United States at camps and then return to study Veterinary Science. The school dux also admits, the success of her sister, and the strong results of cousins Sally and Meg

Gazzard did inspire and motivate her to continue the family tradition. “Seeing them all do so well did motivate me to make sure I also put in the same effort and hopefully get good results as well,” Laura said. “You learn pretty quickly on your own as well. If you don’t put the effort into something, it does show. You absolutely get sick of it (the study) sometimes but you have a debrief with a couple of friends and then hit the books again.” Ironically, looking back over the past two years, Laura found Year 11, when she was tackling those

initial Year 12 maths subjects, more stressful than her final year of study. Taking on Year 12 subjects in Year 11 was not really behind the pressure, though. Laura has been working a year head for maths since a test in Year 7 showed she should accelerate her maths studies due to her heightened aptitude for the subject. But the bottom line is, Laura has made the most of her school years and is now set to make her mark – she’s just not sure where so it’s a case of watch this space.

MEN’S SHED GETS BEHIND INAUGURAL FESTIVAL Hooked on Portland festival goers will be comfortably catered for this January long weekend thanks to the talented efforts of the Portland Men’s Shed. Shed members have spent the past two months constructing stylish wooden street furniture for the three-day long Australia Day festivities which will be used in the food park area. Glenelg Shire Council assisted the group with funding to build the six tables and large wooden bar with pallets donated by Allen’s Freight and recycled electrical wheels donated by Lawrence and Hanson. Council tourism and marketing manager Liz McKinnon said it was great to see community groups donating their time and efforts to ensure the success of the inaugural festival. “This new furniture will provide festival goers with a comfortable place to rest and enjoy a bite to eat and drink during our festivities. The quality of the workmanship is exceptional and we are extremely grateful to these hardworking volunteers for sharing their time to ensure our event is a success,” she said. “It is hoped this furniture will be used at future outdoor events hosted by council, or for loan to other community groups.” Portland Men’s Shed member Wayne Smith said wood work exercise had been a great experience for all members. “The construction of the furniture was completed over a six week period and gave us all an opportunity to get out of the house as well as make new friends,” Mr Smith said. “We are more than happy to build more furniture for anyone interested in ordering through the Men’s Shed.” The Hooked On Portland festival will run from Friday, January 26, to Sunday, January 28, playing host to a large range of activities over the three-day long weekend.

NEW MARKETING TOOL FOR COMMUNITY GROUPS Heywood and Casterton event organisers will now have access to unparalleled marketing with the unveiling of new community event signage. Event signage has been installed in both Heywood and Casterton, highlighting the myriad of community events to all visitors and regulars on immediate entry into the townships. “The new signage will allow our hard-working event organisers across our region to advertise to a broader audience without the hefty price tag,” Glenelg Mayor Cr Anita Rank said. Cr Rank encouraged community groups to get their event signage prepared for display, with vacant spots ready to be filled. “If you are organising an event in Casterton or Heywood in 2018, make sure you plan ahead to utilise the new signage – you are guaranteed to reach a whole new audience base.” Event organisers wishing to place a sign in either Heywood or Casterton are invited to contact council on 1300 GLENELG or by emailing enquiry@glenelg.vic.gov. au with the subject title COMMUNITY EVENT SIGNAGE.

HEAD TO THE BEACH FOR BREAKFAST Local pooches and their human friends are invited to a series of special breakfasts along the coast as part of the Natural Resources South East Coastal Connections summer activity program. Run by dedicated volunteers from Friends of Shorebirds SE, the Dogs’ Breakfast events will be held at Kingston, Robe, Port MacDonnell and Beachport. Natural Resources South East Team Leader Sustainable Landscapes Tania Rajic said the events were designed to bring people together, and to educate dog owners about the coastal environment and their responsibilities as pet owners. A BBQ breakfast will be provided for humans, with a special doggy bag for each pooch. Please note, only dogs with up to date vaccinations are eligible to attend. Events will be held at Kingston, on Saturday, January 13, at Kingston Lions Park at the rotunda, and Robe, on Sunday, January 14, Town Beach.

MOUNT GAMBIER RAIL TRAIL EXTENSION UNDER CONSTRUCTION The City of Mount Gambier has begun construction on the 2.3km extension of the Rail Trail from east to west of the city limits. Council allocated $250,000 to the project following the success of the first stages of the rail trail that provided a shared walking/cycling path from Pick Avenue in the east, through to White Avenue in the west. The work includes extending the existing rail trail in a westerly direction from White Avenue through to Jubilee Highway West. These links will help Tenison Woods College and Mount Gambier High School students to get to and from school on foot or bike safely. Council also received $40,000 as part of the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) State Government Bicycle Funding program to assist with providing linkages to the existing rail trail through to Hastings Cunningham Reserve/Shepherdson Road area. The project is expected to be completed in early March 2018. It will bring the entire length of the path to 6.1km. It is currently 3.8km long.

COMMUNITY MULCH PROGRAM A SUCCESS Wattle Range Mayor Peter Gandolfi said a total of 11 Community Mulch Days were held from May through to November last year providing more than 700 loads of free mulch to 330 customers. The free mulch is as a result of the Wattle Range Council recycling green waste at its waste transfer stations. “The program has provided significant savings for council while providing a service to the community,” Mr Gandolfi said. “With the operating costs involved in transporting and disposal of the processed green waste at the regional composting facility reduced, the reuse of this material as garden mulch is a positive outcome for our ratepayers and the environment.” The program has received positive feedback from the wider community and council plans to continue offering the service in Autumn this year. In the meantime, a store of mulch will be available from time to time, for selfloading at Council’s Millicent, Penola and Beachport waste facilities.

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - DOG DAYS... By ROBBIE TANSEL So I’ve got a dog now. I can’t say I’m particularly happy about it, but it had to happen eventually I guess. I’ve always been a cat person. As a child my family always had cats, never dogs so this is uncharted territory for me. My partner Donna and son Shaquille have been nagging me about getting a dog for years now. A few years ago my previous cat was very unwell and eventually we had to take him to the vet to have him euthanased. I was quite emotional as I’d had him for about fifteen years. He was a bit of a nasty customer who I’m pretty sure had a mental illness, but I was still very sad. We were a bit concerned about how Shaquille was going to react to his first encounter with death. We all said our farewells to the little critter before the vet took him away for his lethal injection. As he walked out the door Shaquille said, “So when are we getting a dog?” Couldn’t have cared less about the cat. What is my reluctance to get a dog, you may wonder. Essentially I was of the opinion that I’d be the one who was left looking after it. Donna and Shaquille told me over and over again that they’d take it for walks, and they’d clean up its poo. But most days when I got home from work, I was listening to Donna complain about how she hadn’t achieved any of the things she’d wanted to on that day. So if she already wasn’t getting things done, how was adding extra responsibilities going to solve the problem? The tipping point, however, came when I read Shaquille’s Christmas letter. As with any normal kid he’d listed off every toy he had seen in a shop or on an advertisement over the last month as well as the dog he has been hoping for for the last few years. He apologised for being naughty throughout the year (a bit late now, sunshine). But he finished with, “I would really like the dog especially.” When questioned further he said, that if he could only have one present he would choose a dog. Talk about putting the guilt on me. So now we have a dog. He’s a German Wirehaired Pointer and we’ve called him Taserface. All right, I’ve called him Taserface. Realistically, as the person who has made the sacrifice to get the dog I should get to name him. Having a dog is already worse than I thought it was going to be. I didn’t enjoy having newborn children in my house. It affected our ability to have any sort of a life for a few years. It was difficult to travel. It weed and pooped everywhere. We had to pack bags of paraphernalia for even the shortest excursion from our house. I was extremely happy when Shaquille grew out of that stage and

I got some semblance of a normal life back. Having a puppy has taken us back to that point again. The only difference is that Taserface has worse breath and eats cat poo. Hang on, Shaquille did that on a few occasions when I wasn’t supervising adequately. As predicted Taserface is pooping everywhere. We’ve got the added bonus of him also digging holes and trying to eat any and every thing. The addition of a dog to the family also means we have to put extra thought in before deciding to go for even a short holiday. Who will look after the dog? Will he cope at home by himself? What sort of destruction are we likely to be repairing when we return? Not what I was hoping for at this

TEMPT THE TASTEBUDS

point of time. I’d probably find a new home for him if it wasn’t for feeling like it would be a poor return on my investment. He’s already cost me a fortune. Have to pay for him in the first place. Pay for a bed. Pay for food. Pay for a collar. Pay for some toys. The only thing I can do now is try to ensure I train him to be more self-sufficient and not so needy. Apart from that, the rest of the family like him. They’d be more likely to relocate me from the family than him. Man’s best friend, my rear end. If your family likes your dog more than you, email me at robbietansel@ gmail.com Maybe we need to set up some sort of support group.

MUCH NEEDED DONATION FOR READING PROGRAM Australian Bluegum Plantations has provided a grant to help fund books for some of the most vulnerable children living in the Glenelg Shire as part of a United Way Glenelg project. Children living in Out of Home Care (OoHC) are more likely to start school developmentally vulnerable than other children. United Way Glenelg’s early intervention initiative, “Improving school readiness for children living in Out of Home Care” focuses on building skills and confidence that they need to start school ready to learn. “Funding support from ABP will provide quality monthly books through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library to children aged 0-5 years” United Way Glenelg executive officer Nicole Angelino said. “The muchneeded resources will help achieve better outcomes for children and families. We are working with partner agencies Brophy Family Youth Services, Mackillop Family Services and Wind Mara to identify the children and sign them up,” said Ms Angelino.” The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is an early learning initiative that gives children the opportunity to reach

their full potential. United Way Glenelg and Portland Aluminium brought the Imagination Library to the Glenelg Shire in 2013. Together the program has steadily grown to the point where it has delivered the largest number of books to a community anywhere in Australia. Every month until their 5th birthday, children receive a high quality, age-appropriate book chosen by experts in childhood education. The program builds a lasting love of reading. The program is open to all children living in the Glenelg Shire aged from 0-5 years. Families can enrol their child by completing an enrolment form located on United Way Glenelgs’ website http://www.unitedwayglenelg.com.au/ imagination-library1 Due to its immense popularity the early literacy initiative is oversubscribed, meaning children are placed on a waiting list until funding is available. “The waiting list continues to grow as each child is born in the Glenelg Shire. For a book to reach the hands of a little one it costs $7.00 per month, per child,” concluded Ms Angelino. With approximately 20 children on the waiting list, United Way Glenelg continues to seek donations from businesses, community groups and individuals. If you would like to make a contribution to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library please contact Nicole Angelino on 0410 513 305 or mail@unitedwayglenelg.com.au Above - Darren Sheldon, from Australian Bluegum Plantations, with United Way Glenelg executive officer Nicole Angelino.

STUDENT RETURNS AS THE TEACHER Katarina Gajic is 19 years old but the former Edenhope dancer has already packed a myriad of experiences into her first two decades. Katarina’s dance journey started because her mother Heidi thought she had too much energy and had her doing a variety of sports and other activities and in the end it was dance that stuck. Katarina is one of a long line of MJ Dance Studio graduates that have gone on to make a career out of their one time hobby, although Katarina’s story was a little different. Most MJ alumni leave the Mount Gambier based studio, run by director Maria Slape, when they are 17 or 18 and have completed their secondary schooling – Katarina was a quiet, fresh faced 15 year old when she headed to Sydney to pursue her passion. It was in 2013 that the young dancer started to make her mark. After six years of dance she was one of the premier performers at MJ and she also teamed with Sam Malseed on the ill-fated TV dance show Everybody Dance Now. Katarina’s opportunity to pursue dance full time came after a visit from respected ballet teacher Tibor Horvath to the Mount Gambier studio. The hard task master saw something in the young ballerina and while Katarina admits, ballet wasn’t

always her first love, the opportunity to train at the respected studio was too good an opportunity to pass up and so in 2014 she packed her bags and moved in with her grandparents in Sydney, juggling her gruelling dance schedule with Tibor with her regular schooling. Of course, when the dedicated dancer and student left for Sydney, she had already completed Year 12 Psychology and Dance. Fellow MJ dancer Cooper Terry also headed to Tibor’s ballet program the same year, with both dancers realising the strong grounding ballet gives you for all dance forms would lay a strong foundation for their careers, wherever it took them. Fast forward four years and Katarina is still finding her way in the dance world. “I stayed with Tibor for a year and a half and I learned so much and the training was brilliant,” she said, on a recent return visit to Mount Gambier, where she took up the opportunity from Maria to teach some of the MJ Studio’s senior dancers. Looking to return to contemporary dance, Katarina took up a position at Transit Dance but did not find the course as challenging as she hoped. “So I decided to audition for WAAPA (Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts but I honestly

didn’t think I would get in,” she said. WAAPA is considered the premier performing arts training institution in Australia and it turns out Katarina was what they were looking for. “Two days after the auditions I got a phone call offering me a place,” Katarina said. She is studying a Bachelor of Dance and Diploma in Dance and it meant moving even further away from family and friends and relocating to Perth. “I didn’t know anyone in Perth,” Katarina said. “It was a bit dauting to move so far away from my parents.” But since stepping through the WAAPA doors, Katarina has been grateful she made the move. “It’s amazing,” Katarina said.

“The atmosphere is amazing and it is kind of like a family.” She is loving that she has been able to tap into her strong ballet background as well as returning to contemporary, and developing a whole range of different styles. “Last year we got to do aerial work and that was something new, a bit scary, but so much fun,” Katarina said, as she heads into her third year at WAAPA, and contemplates the looming challenge of getting out into the real world and finding a job. “I am hoping to find a place in a dance company,” Katarina said. “I think that is the type of environment I would like to work in and it is more stable in terms of job security.

be there and the whole experience was so tough but so incredibly rewarding in every possible way,” Matt said. As his New York adventure started to wind down, Matt decided it was time to take the plunge and start auditioning for professional gigs – it was time to turn his dance education into a career. “The first audition that I went to was with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and after a very gruelling six hour audition process I was left standing at the end,” he said. Matt was offered a contract as a dancer and aerialist and he was finally a professional dancer. So from New York, Matt headed to Miami, all within a month, and rehearsals began. He was working on three shows for the theatre on the ship and two shows at the aerial venue. “It was a massive shock to the system but working with and being surrounded by like minded people and having the directors and choreographers pushing you everyday was beyond incredible,” he said. That was three years ago and Matt has now completed four stints with the cruise line. It is a job that has seen him travel across the globe – 13 countries in three years including Alaska, Canada, Australia, Hawaii, Fiji, the South Pacific Islands, Jamaica, Aruba, Asia and some parts of the United States. “I have travelled a lot within my career to date and it is a most definitely another reason why I love it so much,” he said. Most recently, Matt earned a promotion to dance captain, meaning he

is in charge of a cast of 22 performers. “I managed everything in regard to the shows, note taking, schedules, disciplinary action, dance classes and meetings with my management team,” he said. “I definitely found my niche in mentoring and supervising my fellow cast members and I look forward to doing it again on my next contract.” Matt has had time to pop back to Australia and Adelaide from time to time, so he can touch base with family. “Whilst I am home in Australia I have been extremely privileged to be welcomed into the Adelaide dance industry,” he said. “I perform regularly around

I have had to grow up a lot because I moved away so young. I am glad I took the opportunity though, I have had so many great mentors over the different schools I have attended and I have really been pushed and learned you can push yourself so much further than you think.” Part of WAAPA’s mantra is to prepare students for the rough and tumble of being on their own, out in the industry. “They try and treat us like we will be treated in the industry,” Katarina said. “It was initially a shock to the system, but it isn’t all fun and games and you have to learn to be tough and to work hard.” Returning to her home dance studio, as part of MJ’s 30th anniversary celebrations, allowed Katarina to pursue her love of choreography and to develop her teaching skills. “I couldn’t believe how much everyone here (MJ dance Studio) has grown up,” Katarina said. “I think the standard was really increased since I left. It is weird to have Maria watching what I’m teaching rather than me watching her and what she’s doing.” Katarina loved working with the kids and choreographing a new work for the senior dancers.

MATT CRAM’S WORLD TOUR When Matthew Cram left Mount Gambier as a 17 year old in 2012, he might have been heading into the unknown but he was sure of one thing – he wanted to dance and he wanted to make a career out of it. Sydney was his first stop and the famous Brent Street Studios. Making the transition, his first away from home, a little easier was he made the move with long time friend Maddy Macera – the duo living and studying together. “I absolutely loved the time I spent at Brent Street,” Matt said. “Dance in Sydney, compared to a country town, was completely different as was the way of life - I had to grow up quickly.” Of course, when you are doing something you love, the settling in process is easier. “I was dancing from 9-5, Monday to Friday, and I was able to learn and grow so much, both as a person and as

a performer,” he said. “The things you learn and the inspiring people that you are exposed to help you to forge your own path in life.” Matt studied under Jason Winters during his one year course but he did graduate knowing he still needed more training. “I did not feel that one year prepared me for a career that would hopefully last my lifetime,” he said. “I wanted to make sure I was ready physically and mentally to make my own path in life, both personally and professionally.” And his next move was certainly set to test all that as he crossed the world. An audition, in Sydney, for New York’s prestigious Joffrey Ballet resulted in a scholarship and it was time for Matt to pack his bags for the second time in 12 months. “It was an opportunity I could not turn down,” he said. “The time I spent in New York was completely life changing.” Nerve wracking, challenging but life changing. “Still to this day it was the hardest move I have ever made,” Matt said. “I was 18 and heading off to the other side of the world on my own. I did not know a soul and I had never been out of Australia. When I look back I know it was a huge part of my growth and my mental toughness.” The chance to be mentored by world renowned ballet teachers Andre and Era Jouravlev and perform in the Joffrey Ballet’s The Nutrcracker and Mid Summer Night’s Dream, though, was the kind of education and experience that money just can’t buy. “I was so very lucky to

Adelaide in all sorts of commercial gigs. I was recently part of the Strike Force Dance Crew for the Adelaide Strikers and also performed at the Adelaide Oval on New Year’s Eve behind singers from the 2015 season of The Voice.” He will also be on stage in Melbourne at Crown Casino this January as part of Legends The Concert, a Las Vegas show. “I am thrilled to be a part of this amazing and well known show,” Matt said. “I will do some teaching as well and keep myself fit and healthy so that I am always at the top of my game. I love yoga and Pilates and living a mere 10 minute walk from the beach I really have no excuse.”

COUNTRY ARTS SA CELEBRATES 25 YEARS WITH NEW LOOK 2018 PROGRAM This region used to run a tourism campaign entitled Stay Another Day – and that is at the heart of the 2018 Country Arts season in the Limestone Coast. “This is going to be a new way or working for us,” Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre manager Frank Morello said. “More artists are coming to the regional areas and they are staying for a longer period of time, creating more work while they are here and really engaging with the community. We’ve got residencies, we’ve got artists coming here and building the work here, we’re looking to engage with our own regional artists and things are definitely going to be different.” Country Arts SA is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and Mr Morello is just as excited about the shows earmarked for the Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre, as he is the improved community engagement that is a key, new element of the 2018 program. 2018 also sees the return of the Fringe to Mount Gambier, on March 24. The 2018 season is also looking to encourage us to explore regional South Australia, with the newly introduced Country Arts SA Passport. The 2018 Passport highlights 25 shows across the State with the view to enticing

arts lovers to head to their favourite performances, wherever they are across South Australia. “Not every show goes to every venue in regional South Australia but this is a chance to explore our wonderful State, the wonderful regional areas of our State and to enjoy the shows on offer,” Mr Morello said. But, of course, the shows he is most anticipating is the ones heading to the Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre and Especially on Birthdays is one of those. “It’s a beautiful show for young children and students from this area will be involved in the design element of the show,” Mr Morello said. “We will also see educators take centre stage and discover their inner child.” Aimed at 4-8 year olds, Especially on Birthdays is described as “part performance, part game, part celebration” and is a prime example of the new engagement quality the Country Arts SA program is looking to encourage. The performances are on May 15 and 16 its creators, The PaperBoats, will be in Mount Gambier for a couple of weeks. “This is a relationship we are looking to extend beyond 2018 for the next three or so years,” Mr Morello said. “That’s our aim. We are moving away from one night

stands and developing more intimate relationships with the performers and audiences.” Dance has always been a strong component of any Country Arts SA program and 2018 is no exception with The Spinners bringing the work of South Australian choreographer Lina Limosani to the stage on July 7, and this performance will also see a strong community collaboration. Arts on Screen also returns in 2018, giving Limestone Coast audiences a chance to view live productions on screen, that would normally never grace the Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre stage. The Wharf Revue is a Sydney Theatre Company production that takes a satirical look at Australian politics that is bound to strike a chord, particularly the Mount Gambier performance which will come one week before our State election and provide some comic relief from the election campaign we will have all endured. “It will be a great way to shake off the election blues,” Mr Morello said. The Wharf Revue will be screened on March 7. August 18 will see what Mr Morello believes will be a season highlight with the performance of The Season. Featuring some of Australia’s best indigenous performers, the Nathan Maynard created work is billed as thought provoking. “It is pretty raw but also pretty funny,” Mr Morello said. One of the most anticipated performances for music lovers will be the visit of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra string quartet, which will perform in the Riddoch Art Gallery.

“It is such a lovely venue to stage a performance like a string quartet,” Mr Morello said. Pick up your Country Arts SA 2018 Passport and season guide from the theatre or head to the website for more details.

finalists Sam Goodwin and Eliza Wilson taking centre stage. And while Portland’s month long tuna fishing competition will still run in 2018, the spotlight will be on recreational fishing over the January 2628 Hooked on Portland event. “From kids off the wharf, to experienced anglers in their boats, fishing will ultimately be the focus of the festival,” Miss McKinnon said. And aside from the fishing competition, there will be free fishing clinics and presentations for less experienced anglers from radio show Reel Adventures co-host Aaron Habgood. Tours of the port and foreshore water activities are also on the program. Victorian Agriculture Minister Jaala Pulford could think of no better way to spend the Australia Day holiday weekend. “Australia Day is about celebrating the things we love most about this terrific country – like fishing with family and friends in the great

outdoors,” she said. “What better way to spend a long weekend than relaxing at the Hooked on Portland Festival. It’s all part of our plan to get more people fishing more often and experiencing the very best of our great outdoors.” Member for Western Victoria Gayle Tierney is also on the festival bandwagon. “This is a fantastic opportunity for the whole family to try their luck at throwing in a line, and to get out and experience the very best Portland has to offer,” she said. That will

INAUGURAL FESTIVAL ATTRACTS BIG NAMES The Australia Day weekend will have a different feel in Portland in 2018 as the game fishing haven showcases all it has to offer from January 26-28. A jam packed three day program will see Portland’s foreshore come to life as the focus on fishing is complemented by water sports, food and wine, children’s and youth activities and a stellar music line-up. The Hooked on Portland festival is a take on Hooked on Lakes Entrance, which Portland officials, including festival organiser Liz McKinnon has seen first hand. “It was a huge economic spinner for the town,” Miss McKinnon said. “The shops were busy, the caravan parks were

packed and it was just all good news for the town.” Portland now has planned its on off and on shore festival, seeing the Glenelg Shire, Regional Development Victoria, the Victorian Fisheries Authority and the Victorian State Government joining forces to host an event that taps into the government’s Target One Million plan – a $46million dollar investment to boost participation and to get more people fishing, more often. “If there is one thing the Glenelg Shire is good at, it is events,” Miss McKinnon said. The Upwelling Festival, the cruise ship visits and previous fishing competitions are all proof of the town’s ability to put its best foot forward and impress and it is hoped Hooked on Portland will have a huge impact over the three days, as a visitor drawcard and economic boost for local business, but also as a marketing ploy – lifting the region’s profile and enticing visitors to the Great Ocean Road to venture beyond Warrnambool and the Twelve Apostles and continue through to Portland, and into South Australia. Knowing the importance of launching this inaugural event with a bang, organisers have ensured there is no shortage of high end talent – The Pierce Brothers and Louise Adams headline the musical acts, while the seafood cooking demonstrations will see Masterchef

include market stalls, a foodie tent, a youth zone, with skating exhibitions and a basketball competition, winding up on January 28 with a community breakfast and announcement of the fishing competition awards. It is an event that has been 12 months in the planning with a small team of three putting together the enticing program. “We have a goal in this shire, and our CEO is very supportive of this, to have an event every weekend so there is always something on,” Miss McKinnon said. “We are trying to build our profile as a destination on the Great Ocean Road.” Above (top) - The Pierce Brothers.

COMING EVENTS

PUTTING HER PERSONAL JOURNEY ON THE PAGE Kathy Parker has been working on a novel for the past 12 months but life intervened. The Mount Benson author did launch a book at the end of November, on White Ribbon Day, but it was not a work of fiction but a deeply personal work – a collection of poetry, that started as a way to heal from a childhood and adolescence of sexual abuse and physical violence but become a lifeline for so many. It was one week that really changed Kathy’s course. “There was a massive stream of emails and messages one week asking if I had a book, or if I had a book coming out,” Kathy said. The influx of messages coincided with a lull in her momentum with the book, and a blog, where she shared her childhood abuse survival story, sky rocketing from 500 to 5000 followers in the space of months. “It just seemed like a good time to set aside the book and work on a side project.” That side project became her debut book – The Unravelled Heart – a collection of poems and stories gleaned from her blog, which has been running for about five years. “I have had a lot of things to deal with in my life and I wondered if other people were going through similar things,” Kathy said. “I used my love of

writing as a form of cathartic healing and I really only out it out there in case it could help anyone else.” Turns out it did. And her love of writing – fostered as a young child – was becoming not just a way forward for Kathy as the 37 year old mother of four but also she was inspiring others to undertake a similar journey. Interestingly, poetry has also been her weapon of choice when it comes to writing. “I entered poetry competitions from when I was about seven and I have journals of poems from high school,” she said. “I look back now on that work and laugh.” Kathy certainly loved writing enough to apply to study journalism when she left school but love intervened and she never ended up at university. “I moved here with my family just before I started high school and in the end I stayed for my husband,” she said. But while she might have abandoned tertiary study, she certainly didn’t abandon her passion., writing for the The Huffington Post and The Elephant Journal, and between that and her blog, the responses started to come. One of her first messages proved to be typical of the support she received and the reason why The Unravelled Heart

has ended up on bookshelves. “I am counting on you to be my voice until I can find mine.” And hundreds of others have told Kathy they’ve found the courage to leave hurtful relationships or sought help as a result of reading her words. Kathy believes there has never has there been a better time for survivors of abuse to stand up and speak out, as demonstrated by the number of people coming forward with allegations against some of Hollywood’s most powerful actors and directors. “The climate has changed,” Kathy said. “Just look at the awareness being created and stories being shared through campaigns such as #MeToo and #WhyWomenDontReport. There has especially been an emphasis placed on removing the blame and shame from victims and placing it where it belongs, which has given survivors (including me) a confidence to share our stories, a confidence which may not have existed before.” But that confidence was hard earned. “Finding the courage to share my story and to let people into what is a deeply personal story for me was not easy,” Kathy said. “It’s like sitting down with a stranger and handing them your diary. Writing the things I do isn’t always easy for me - it often comes with some bloodshed and tears but I get to know that my words help bring a little bit of healing into the world.” A special part of the process for Kathy has been that the support her work has provided others has become a two way street. She is humbled and, at times, emboldened by the fact that complete strangers have chosen to confide in her and she finds strength and inspiration from their words. “It makes what I do worth doing,” she said. “There are many survivors out there who feel broken, lost and alone. People who are unable to put a voice to the things they feel. But there’s something about words and stories that resonate deep within us when we read them. They heal us a little, make us feel less alone and help us feel validated and understood. I think our greatest courage as survivors is found in our willingness to be vulnerable, to allow lifestyle1.net | 33

ourselves to be seen and share our stories. “ So what, for Kathy, started as just “stuff I was writing” has become so much more. “I couldn’t have done it without the support from my husband and my family,” she said. “It has been difficult to juggle everything.” She is not only a mother but also helps run the family farm and continues to battle complex-PTSD. “I can’t sit down and write all day, every day. I do try and be disciplined but creativity is not really a disciplined structure. Sometimes it’s better for me to go out for a walk or get out in the vegie garden. It lets my mind just wander and often from that it sparks a thought. I write it down and work on it later.” The Unravelled Heart has engendered plenty of local support but poetry is not as embraced in Australia as it is overseas and that is where Kathy is iliciting a strong response. “Poetry is very mainstream overseas at the moment,” she said. “There is a lot of poetry on the New York Times best seller list. My work is a bit left of centre and a little bit niche and occupies a tiny little shelf in book stores but I am definitely getting a response. It is helping people and it has helped me which is why I started writing about my experiences in the first place.” The Unravelled Heart is available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Booktopia, Book Depository and Angus & Robertson and can be purchased locally at Collins Booksellers, in Mount Gambier, or through Kathy’s website www.kathyparker.com.au

MASSIVE JANUARY AT THE BORDERLINE SPEEDWAY With more than 90 cars across three classes on Saturday night, the Borderline Speedway is building nicely towards its premier event – the King’s Challenge, on January 18, and the Australia Day weekend hosting of the 2018 Australian Sprintcar Championships. “It was a good night,” president Cary Jennings said., of the weekend racing. Not even a 25 minute delay when a light tower went out could dampen the spirits of the drivers and the small but enthusiastic crowd. Squizzy Mills won the Speedcar Super Series round, his first round win and perfectly timed as he headed into the Victorian Speedcar Championships at Warrnambool the following night. The 40 lap final was full of drama with numerous re-starts. The Wingless Sprints contested round two of the Summer Slam with 40 cars taking to the Glenburnie track. Dayn Bentvelzen won the night from Daniel Storer and Joel Chadwick, back in third. The 2018 Street Stock Blue Lake Classic held the most interest for locals with all eight locally based drivers making the A Main, from a starting field on the night of almost 30 cars. New South Welshman John Lodge took out the race, beating local hope Mark Jennings to the honour. In a twist of fate, Lodge was driving the car Jennings drove in 2017 at a number of street stock events. Rhys Heinrich, the reigning Australian champion, from Renmark, finished third. Attention now turns to the January 18 King’s Challenge – the Borderline Speedway’s stand alone sprintcar title. “Things are shaping up really, really well,” Cary Jennings said. Entries for the popular event close this Friday and hopes are high there will be a high number of drivers, with plenty looking to get in some racing at the venue given they will be returning to compete for the national titles. “I believe we will probably get 60 cars for the King’s Challenge,” Cary Jennings said. The King’s Challenge and the 46th Annual Sprintcar Classic, in Warrnambool,

from January 19-21, loom as the perfect lead in for drivers ahead of the January 25-27 Australian Sprintcar Championships. “We are expecting many of the drivers to compete in all three of those events and the drivers for the national titles will be here from as early as Monday, which is going to be great for Mount Gambier, for the accommodation, the eateries and the shops,” Cary Jennings said. Organisers are expecting 90 cars for the national titles. “The speedway looks a picture,” Cary Jennings said. “There’s a few little things to tidy up but most of the infrastructure is done. This week we will finish another corporate box in time for the King’s Challenge and that will give us enough corporate facilities for 240 people.” The president was quick to point out that the club’s hard working volunteer base not only made sure the annual speedway season was able to go ahead but had been instrumental in getting the Borderline Speedway ready for the 2018 Australian Sprintcar Championships. Brooke Tatnell, driving one of Ray Scott’s cars, will lead the charge at the national titles, with local hopes Steve Lines and Glen Sutherland set to be joined by all the top sprintcar drivers, including James Mc Fadden; Jamie Veal; Kerry Madsen and Matt Egel.

BASEBALL RETURNS TO THE DIAMOND DESPITE THE HEAT Federal 4 def South Indians 2 In the surprise of the round second placed Federal upset League leaders South Indians by two runs. Federal scored three of their runs in the bottom of the first when Gavin Smith doubled and Nathan Taylor walked, off the pitching of Dean Hamilton. Singles to Wade Chant and Clay Carpenter scored both of those runners. Wade Chant scored the third also from Carpenter’s long drive to centrefield. The Indians replied in the top of the fourth after Bruce Morale singled and Dean Hamilton found himself on base after an error by pitcher Alex Reppin. They scored on Ben Morale’s single and Ryan Placucci’s sacrifice fly. Federal added their fourth and final run in the bottom of the seventh after Alex Reppin got on board from a wild throw, ran to second on another error and scored from Wade Chant’s second hit for the night. Tight pitching and mostly good defence with a minimum of errors was the key to closeness of this game. Three k’s and three walks to Federal’s Alex Reppin while South’s Dean Hamilton had four K’s and one walk in his four digs while reliever Bruce Morale also had four K’s and a walk. Tigers 8 def Central 1 Tigers scored two in the bottom of the first after lead off batter Brayden Morton singled and scored on Karl Ransom’s double, Ransom then scored

on a wild throw from shortstop Dylan Chuck. They added one in the third when Tyler Horrigan doubled to leftfield and scored on Jesse Foster’s single. Three more were added to their score line in the fourth. Mitch Crosbie walked and scored on Tyler Horrigan’s single to rightfield as did Brayden Morton who had got onboard from a fielders choice. Alex Harkness scored the third run from the dig after he singled and scored on Karl Ransom’s long hit to double to leftfield. Central scored their only run for the game after Lauchie Tilley found himself on second base after a wild throw, on third from a wild pitch, then scored on Kyall McClean’s hit into leftfield. Tigers added their final two runs in the even inning. Jesse Foster and Steve Frost both singled. Then scored on Dyllan Lane’s double. Tigers had eleven safehits to Centrals 4 but left eight and ten runners stranded on base respectively.

SPORT EXCITING NEW BASKETBALL COMPETITION It’s time to get excited as CLB3X3 Basketball, Hamilton Basketball Association and the South Grampians Shire Council bring you three days of 3X3 action, slam dunks & 3 point shoot outs this summer. From Friday, February 16, to Sunday, February 18, athletes, spectators and families from all over the Greater Hamilton region will converge at Melville Oval to take part in the excitement of Champions League Basketball 3X3 competition (CLB3X3). An event aimed at all ages and all abilities, CLB3X3 combines elite sport with grassroots to bring you a festival of 3X3 action along with food trucks, music and family amusements. Champions League Basketball general manager Matt Hollard said the event has been travelling the country since 2014 with great success. “We have been touring around Australia now since 2014, aligning ourselves with key community organisers, councils, event owners and local sporting organisations to provide junior and open basketball players with a 3X3 comp in a festive and safe environment for families to attend, free of charge,” said Mr Hollard. “Councils and community stakeholders play a big part in what we do and we are very appreciative of the support we have received so far. We have seen a real growth over the last two years in 3X3 and now it is great to see a growth in the spectators that come and enjoy “the show” as well.”

Players can register to compete in a range of competitions over the weekend from a Corporate Cup held on the Friday from 6pm onwards, a great way to network and keep fit, or as a junior U13s or U15s player on the Saturday from 12pm onwards and lastly as an U18s or Open player on the Sunday, for the chance to win great prizes and world ranking points. Spectators are welcome to come along and enjoy the atmosphere and watch the rising talent come out on top during the finals each day. Southern Grampians Shire Council Mayor Mary-Ann Brown said Council is very pleased to welcome the 3X3 event to the Greater Hamilton region. “We are really looking forward to seeing all of the community come out to participate in this exciting event,” she said. “It’s something we’ve never seen here in our town before and a really great way to encourage people to be active with their family and friends. With the usual basketball tournament at HILAC not taking place till later in the year, this is great opportunity for our talented young people to have some fun and for those who may not have played before to learn some new skills as well”. Hamilton Basketball Association president Carla Mayfield is looking forward to hosting their first outdoor 3X3 event over the summer. “The Hamilton Basketball Association is very
