Brooke Rzepiela Brooke Rzepiela started in the finance industry in 1997, moving into the financial planning sector in 2001 and quickly progressing to a senior role. She completed her Diploma in Financial Planning, via Deakin University, in 2004, and sees financial planning as so much more than just figures and dollars and cents. “For me, the journey of financial planning is not all numbers, we develop in-depth relationships with clients which can stretch over years,” she said. “We are there for clients’ highs and lows, seeing some of the best moments in a client’s life and then also the darkest. The relationship is as much emotional as financial.” The relationship between financial planner and client is always changing and with her extensive experience in retirement planning, Brooke will be with you every step of the way of your financial journey. “I believe in ongoing service and ongoing relationships,” Brooke said. “Clients’ lives constantly evolve and their financial plan should be fluid enough to move and adapt with them.” Aside from her career, Brooke is a mother to an eight year old daughter and lives locally with her husband. She enjoys being at one with nature and spends as much time outdoors, exploring the beach, river and bush, with her family, as time permits. “I love photography and hope to travel the world one day to witness all the wonders the world has to offer,” she said.

MOUNT GAMBIER’S NEWEST ART GALLERY It was in 2015 that Mount Gambier based artists Matt Sheehy and Anthony Hamilton first met. Fellow artist Gina Raisin was the mastermind behind the meeting and she curated the duo’s first joint exhibition – the Amazing Adventures of Doctor Mayhem and The Chonga Barz - at the Margaret Scott Gallery at the Riddoch Art Gallery a mere six months later. It was a surprising and eclectic showing, as quiet, unassuming acrylic and oil painter Matt (pictured below), who is steeped in a world of fantasy, teamed with emerging aerosol artist, Anthony (pictured right with two year old daughter Myah), responsible for some of the striking murals in Mount Gambier. The two have been friends ever since and have now embarked on

a new venture – a new gallery space in Mount Gambier, the Alien Art Studio. Located at 8 Margaret Street, Mount Gambier, the gallery opened its doors in November but officially kick started its tenure as a relaxed, less traditional art space at the weekend, with a casual function, catered by gallery sponsor Thyme at the Lakes, with Chris Ind and Anvil Electronics also throwing their support behind the project. “We have really just been winging it,” Matt said. “We wanted a space where people could exhibit, focussing more on alternate contemporary work and getting away from the craft shop type galleries. There is a place for all of that but we wanted to make sure there was a place for art that is a bit alternative, a

bit different, a bit more contemporary.” Sculptor Jon Dixon is also part of the initial exhibition at the new space. “We are planning on showing other artists and we want to have a good rotation,” Anthony said. “We hope it might be a stepping stone for people whose work is a bit more alternative.” The gallery has had a small but steady stream of visitors but the boys hope, the fanfare of an official opening and word of mouth will start to see interest grow. The majority of the works are for sale. “We will look to have regular openings of exhibitions in the future and we are thinking about running art classes as well,” Matt said. “We see the gallery as another way for artists to get in contact with each other.” It looms as a space perfect for emerging artists and the boys hope people will contact them in the hopes of having their own show in the new space. Anthony has just finished his latest community project – a mural at Allendale East Area School for the White Ribbon campaign. Matt is a full

time artist, who continues to create in his work space at the rear of the new gallery. “Being an artist is not like a regular job and maybe we can help some new artists get their foot in the door through an exhibition here,” Matt said. He describes his detailed creations as “organic abstract” and there is no doubt they are thought provoking. “I’ve been expressing myself creatively since I was a little kid,” he said. “It was my way of making sense if the world and reacting to what’s happening in it.” For Matt, art has long been a full time career, while for Carter Holt Harvey mill worker Anthony, it is a simmering passion that he is now concentrating on whenever time allows. “I’ve been dabbling for 20 years,” he said. “Working and not having a lot of time is why I got into street art, it suited my time frame – it’s a quick medium. Painting murals with a brush is a lot more detailed and takes a lot longer, but going down the aerosol path was quicker and easier.”

TIME FOR THESE LEOS TO ROAR Lily Thornley is just about to embark on her first year at university – she is studying at Deakin University – but before she left, she was able to see a project she instigated come to fruition. Lily was the mastermind behind establishing a Leo Club in Mount Gambier, and now, through her hard work, the commitment of new president Emily Brown, and a growing band of enthusiastic members, the Mount Gambier Leo Club is a reality and after a 20 month process, are now fully chartered. For Lily, the seed was sewn in 2015. “I actually participated in the Lions Youth of the Year Quest in 2015, where I met likeminded youth that were high achievers and passionate about their community” Lily said. “It was from there that I wanted to create opportunity for like-minded youth to bring their passions forward and advocate for change in their community; so, following the quest I approached Lions Member Max Hellyer who had been keen to start a Leos club in the past. From there we began recruiting for members, and now under the presidency of Emily Brown the club is now officially chartered.”Establishing anything new is always a challenge and recruiting members to be part of her vision was often a rocky road for Lily and the club’s small but dedicated inaugural members. “Because the club was so newly established, and had an extremely low profile in the community it was very difficult to encourage youth

to participate,” Lily said. That recruitment was not helped when the club’s first major event - a family fun day, in partnership with the South East Animal Welfare League, was rained out. “It was a big deal for myself and the members in the club, as our first event was not big and successful,” Lily said. “We just had to overcome all of the obstacles that you face when starting up something new.” But those initial teething problems have been overcome and current president Emily Brown has happily brought Lily’s vision to reality. “I actually find it really great to see that the club has continued to evolve, and become official,” Lily said. “I hope they continue to retain and obtain new members, and wish them every success in the world.” Emily jumped on board the Leo Club idea thanks to the enthusiasm of Lily, who was a school mate. “We really wanted to make this work and we are now chartered with 14 members,” Emily said. She admits the perception that there is nothing for young people to do in Mount Gambier inspired the campaign to start the Mount Gambier Leo Club. “Getting involved in Leos was a good way for us to make sure there are things for young people to do,” Emily said. “It’s about having a say and making a change and joining Leos is a really good way to do that.” The Mount Gambier club is an Omega club, meaning it caters for 12-17 year olds. There is also an 18-30

category in the Leo organisation and after that, Lions Clubs are the next step. Fifteen year old Bella Pollifrone, a Tenison Woods College student, is one of the club’s most dedicated members. “I just wanted to do something where I could get involved with the community,” Bella said. She has been part of the Mount Gambier group for just over 12 months, with her only experience of an organised club prior to joining Leo being her netball club. Younger sister Lizzy Pollifrone, 13, is also a keen Leo – in fact the Mount Gambier group boasts three sets of siblings. “I’ve been very involved in leadership at school and this was a chance to get involved in leadership in the community,” said the Tenison Woods College school captain. The mix of planning social events, as well as being involved in community

fundraising, is what has attracted most of the Leos to the newly formed club. “It is somewhere young people can come and let loose and have a bit of fun,” Emily said. “We also help out with Lions and other community events.” Now the Mount Gambier Leo Club is officially chartered, though, it will be able to branch out on its own from time to time to work on its own fundraising, with almost $2000 currently sitting in the kitty. All the young people involved in Leos find it is a safe place to speak up and share ideas. “I do try and keep the meetings as relaxed as possible without getting too far off track – it’s that balance between casual and professional,” Emily said. “I am also really lucky because our members are really committed and any time we need something done, people are more than happy to help out.” Daniela Ortiz Kaiser,14, is another of the young group looking forward to what the club can achieve in the next 12 months. “I got involved because my friends were coming and they really seemed to enjoy it,” Daniela said. The group meets the second and fourth Friday of every month at the Mount Gamier RSL and the early meetings this year will be all about brainstorming social and fundraising ideas for the year ahead. Club vice president Hollie Merrett knows she will need to step up in 2018, with Emily also tackling Year 12, but the Grant High School student, who turns 15 on Australia Day, is up for the challenge. “I was friends with Lily which is why I joined and it has been a lot of fun and I am looking forward to what we will plan this year,” Hollie said.

CRITICAL FORUM FOR FARMERS What does today’s farmer look like? How digital ready am I? What solutions are available on farm? These are just some of the questions to be answered at Natural Resources South East’s Pathways to Productivity forum in Keith, Thursday, February 15. Regional Landcare facilitator Caroline Menzel said presentations will be relevant for landholders and managers, business partners, agronomists and anyone with an interest in sustainable agriculture. “We’re really excited to have secured a range of speakers with relevant experience in their field,” Ms Menzel said. “Our keynote speaker Carolyn Miller (pictured) is a well-recognised marketing strategist and panellist on ABC’s Gruen. Carolyn will present on her experience in red meat marketing and explore the image of Australian farmers.” Other presenters include Dannielle England who will be talking about decision making, and Dan and Mike Hayes, from SmartData, who will talk tech and how to stay connected on farm. Ken Solly, known across South Australia for his weekly Stock Journal feature‘Mind Your Own Business, will facilitate the day including question and answer sessions at the end of each presentation. “There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions, network with other people and chat to the speakers one on one,” said Ms Menzel. “It’s great to have such high quality speakers in our region to share their experiences. Our staff will also be on hand throughout the morning to talk about any land management issues. All landholders and anyone with an interest in and connection to agriculture are invited to attend.” The forum will be held at the Keith Institute and is free to attend, with morning tea and lunch provided. Register online via Eventbrite by Friday, February 9. Pathways to Productivity 2018 is supported by the Australian Government through the National Landcare Program and by MacKillop Farm Management Group, Tatiara District Council and the Coorong-Tatiara Local Action Plan. For more information contact Caroline Menzel on 0409 675 573 or emailing caroline.menzel@sa.gov.au

WI-FI HOT SPOT FOR BEACHPORT A key location in Beachport is one of 60 ‘Hot Spots’ earmarked to be included in a network of free wireless internet services to be installed in holiday destinations across the state by the South Australian Tourism Commission in partnership with a major telco. The Beachport installation involves an upgrade to the existing telephone booth on the Beach Road footpath near the Susan Wilson Memorial playground. The WiFi hotspot will enhance the experience of visitors, enabling them to search for tourism information, make online bookings and upload their holiday snaps to social media. “Tourists are now far more mobile and use the internet for a wide range of services,” said Wattle Range Council CEO Ben Gower. “It is hoped the new Wi-Fi site will attract more people to Beachport and keep them in the area for longer as they access the many services, businesses and tourism opportunities in the area.” Signage will be erected next to the booth with instructions on how to access the Wi-Fi network and local area tourism information.

COUNCIL LOOKING TO SET UP A SUICIDE PREVENTION NETWORK Wattle Range Council is looking to further assist the establishment of a Wattle Range Suicide Prevention Network with a public meeting to be held from 6 to 8 pm on Wednesday, January 31, in the Millicent Civic & Arts Centre, Supper Room. A Suicide Prevention Community Network is a group of people who share a concern for the people in their community and a will to do simple things to prevent suicide in their community through: - Starting life-saving conversations - breaking down stigma - increasing connectedness - bringing education and training to the community - linking community members to the services available - bringing coordination to efforts that might already be occurring - fostering community health and wellbeing. If you have an interest, please feel free to attend. For information contact council’s community development officer, Sarah Marzec, on (08)8733 0900.

GRANTS UP FOR GRABS $50,000 of grant funding is on offer for Limestone Coast communities via the fifth OneFortyOne Community Capacity Building Grant round, which will open on February 15. The grants are made possible through a funding partnership between the Stand Like Stone Foundation and OneFortyOne Plantations. The partnership commenced in 2014 and has to date distributed $80,000 across eight charitable projects that have built capacity in the Limestone Coast. In recognition of the many worthy projects ideas that were being submitted for consideration, OneFortyOne Plantations has committed to a funding increase of $50,000 per annum for the next three years. In 2017 funding was provided to support four projects, including $10,000 to the Robe Men’s Shed. The OneFortyOne Community Capacity Building grants will open for 2018 on February 15 and organisations can apply for funding from $5,000 to $20,000 for projects. Applications close at 5pm on March 31. Application forms and further information are available from www.standlikestone.com.au

FEDERAL FUNDING FOR YOUTH PROGRAMS Mental health is in the spotlight with the Federal Government announcing an additional $110 million to programs targeting young Australians, earlier this month. The headspace National Youth Mental Health Foundation will receive additional funding of $30 million. headspace has become an integral part of the lives of many Limestone Coast young people since establishing headquarters in Mount Gambier. Federal Member for Barker Tony Pasin welcomed the announcement saying around four million Australians experience a mental health condition every year, and that those living in regional areas were at higher risk. Also, included in the additional funding is support for a number of digital mental health services. “The digital space is playing an increasing role in the delivery of mental health care and this is vitally important for young people, who may find it easier or feel more comfortable to seek help digitally,” Mr Pasin said. “The youth of today are more connected via digital platforms than ever before. Providing digital mental health services is important to help reach all youth but particularly those in rural and regional areas who find it difficult to access face to face services.”

Add the wine to the rice mixture and cook, stirring, until the liquid is absorbed. Add a ladleful (about 125ml/1/2 cup) of the simmering stock to the rice and stir constantly with a wooden spoon until the liquid is absorbed. Continue adding the stock mixture, a ladleful at a time, stirring constantly and allowing the liquid to be absorbed before adding the next ladleful, for 20-30 minutes or until the rice is tender yet firm to the bite and the risotto is creamy. Heat remaining oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add the chicken and stir-fry for 5 minutes or until chicken just starts to brown. Add the mushroom and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the chicken mixture, parmesan and remaining thyme to the risotto and combine. Season with salt and pepper to serve.

MJ DANCE STUDIO - 2017 HIGHLIGHTS It has been another huge year for Mount Gambier based MJ Dance Studio capped by some stunning results at the recent Follow Your Dreams national competition in Melbourne. Arguably two of the biggest 2017 highlights was the studio receiving two Studio Spirit Awards, acknowledging not just their excellence as performers but also the attitude they bring to competition, and also teacher Christina Jenkin being nominated for a national choreography award. Each year, Christina takes on more and more responsibility for the multi-award winning studio and she is starting to make her own name on the national dance scene. MJ returned from Follow Your Dreams with two individual champions, as well as an overall troupe award, while at the studio’s other major competition - National Showcase, in Queensland - three of their dancers finished in the top five. The studio also enjoyed strong ballet exam results and welcomed a lot of new faces to both the ballet classes and the studio’s fun classes.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE FISH THIS AUSTRALIA DAY Dust off your fishing rods and prepare your boats, the inaugural Hooked On Portland Fishing Competition will test all anglers this Australia Day long weekend. The two-day competition on January 27 and 28, hosted by Glenelg Shire Council, Portland Lions Club, Portland Sports Fishing Club and in conjunction with Victorian Fishing Authority, is open to both boat and land anglers with competitors vying for the heaviest catch across six species of fish. The species include kingfish, snapper, whiting, gummy shark, salmon and tuna with the heaviest in each category to receive a major cash prize of $250. Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said the competition was expected to draw keen anglers from across the country. “We are extremely excited to host this inaugural January competition which has been developed due to the success of the popular month-long Hooked on Tuna festival which is run each Autumn and attracts hundreds of anglers from across Australia,” Cr Rank said. “The beauty of this new competition is that whether you are a keen angler with a big boat or a beginner fishing off the breakwater everyone has the chance to win. This competition is open to all ages and abilities with opportunities for all to win a big cash prize.” Entry is $10 per adult and $5 for juniors with forms now available for download at the Hooked Portland website https://vfa.vic.gov.au/

recreational-fishing/featured/hookedon-portland or alternatively for collection at Compleat Angler, Portland Bait and Tackle or the Portland Visitor Information Centre. The competition will begin from 6am Saturday, January 27, with weighins from 12noon to 6pm at the Portland Yacht Club on Saturday. Additional weigh-ins will occur from 8am until 10am on Sunday, January 28, followed by a community breakfast, hosted by the Portland Lions Club where the official winners will be declared. Cr Rank said the fishing competition was a major drawcard of the three day Hooked on Portland festival which would include appearances by some of Australia’s biggest fishing identities. Among the event’s guest speakers is adventurer fisherman Aaron Habgood and fisheries expert Dr Corey Green who will feature at the Portland Yacht Club on Saturday 27 from 12pm to 1:30pm. “Co-host of Reel Adventures and owner of Reds Fishing Adventures, Aaron ‘Red’ Habgood will be teaching local fishermen the safe way to catch their dream fish as well as sharing his many fishing stories from around the globe,” Cr Rank said. “Aaron is wellknown in the fishing community for his passion for the industry, travelling to Hawaii, Vanuatu and of course Portland in search of the perfect catch. Best known for his success catching big snapper, gummy sharks and king george whiting, Aaron has a wealth of knowledge to share at the Hooked On

Portland festival to help fishers master an elusive catch.” Dr Green, who is a Victorian Fisheries scientist, will be sharing information about the latest research on both southern bluefin tuna and yellowtail kingfish, the two prized species caught in Portland waters. “The Portland region continues to be a great location for targeting southern bluefin tuna and yellowtail kingfish,” Dr Green said. “It is exciting to see large numbers of both species inhabiting these waters and the research is revealing some interesting facts.” To learn more, visit the Hooked On Portland Facebook page or https:// vfa.vic.gov.au/recreational-fishing/ featured/hooked-on-portland .

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - THEY’RE GOVERN-MEANT TO BE BETTER THAN THIS... By ROBBIE TANSEL I was thinking recently about what Donald Trump has achieved as United States President. He is all over the media, normally in a negative way, but as far as I can tell, never for things he is doing to better the life of Americans. I can’t think of one thing he has achieved. He is the Kardashian of presidents. ots of flash, on the television every time you turn it on, but what on Earth does he actually do. Shortly after thinking this I read the local paper and was left wondering what our state government have achieved and done, specifically for us. Unfortunately, just like with Trump, I struggled to think of anything they’ve done that has been a benefit to us. Recent local media about their actions is dominated by their stance on gas exploration, which seems to be inevitably heading towards hydraulic fracturing, or fracking to us commoners. Essentially it seems to be full steam ahead. As far as I can tell the majority of people locally are against this idea.

Apart from fracking, this week I saw our smiling correctional services minister grinning like the Cheshire cat about the fact the biggest jail in the state is nearing completion here in Mount Gambier. He seemed pretty proud of the fact that they’re going to be outsourcing their criminals to us. I’m guessing that there are more Adelaide people needing to be jailed than in Mount Gambier, so someone explain to me why you wouldn’t build the jail in Adelaide. Again, I don’t think this is really what the people of Mount Gambier want. So I’m left wondering what gives the 47 House of Assembly members (or specifically the 23 Labor members and whichever Independents decide to vote with them) as well as the 8 Labor out of 22 Legislative Council Members and whatever other clowns decide to vote with them, the right to decide their opinion of our town and area are more important. As far as I can tell, they are quite clearly making decisions that are not in the interests of the people they are elected to represent. We’ve made it clear that we want money to be spent on drug rehabilitation, education, police and bringing back the Polly Waffle, and lifestyle1.net | 28

they’ve spent over $60 million dollars on a jail. It’s not like they have some sort of mandate for our area. It’s not like we’ve given them any reason to think we like them and their policies. They don’t get any votes here at state or federal elections. They’ll be lucky to get a dozen votes at this year’s state elections, and they’ll probably only be people who can’t read. We haven’t elected a Labor representative to state parliament since 1975. You’d think they’d have gotten the message by now. Actually that’s not quite true. They understand that we don’t like them so they don’t spend any money in trying to improve our circumstances here. They only make decisions about our area that will benefit them in Adelaide or other borderline electorates across the state. I’m just wondering how long until they build a nuclear waste dump in the Valley Lake. Surely there’s money to be made in using the people of Mount Gambier as test subjects for exotic diseases. Maybe they could talk to Kim Jong Un about whether he is looking for somewhere new to test his nuclear weapons. I really think Mr Weatherill is missing out on some opportunities. Let me give you an idea, Jay. Come

to Mount Gambier. Have some open, honest dialogue with people. Listen to it, and use it to guide decisions you make as the premier of our region, as well as the rest of South Australia. Represent the people. We still won’t vote for your candidates (do you have a candidate?) because to be honest we’re a bit annoyed. Apologies for my use of the royal we throughout this rant. I’m sure there are some people who think highly of Mr Weatherill and the Labor party. A big shout out to all of the lovely but unfortunate people out there who have suffered horrific brain injuries. Please email me at robbietansel@gmail.com if you can think of something positive the Labor party has done for our neck of the woods. Sorry, it’s not our neck of the woods anymore is it; they sold it.



FITNESS & FUN FOR EVERYONE Steff Hrvatin was apprehensive, to say the least, when she went to her first bellydance class but she has never looked back and for the past two and a

half years she has run her own school – Alluring Gem Bellydance School. For Steff, it all started nine years ago and stemmed from her love of music.

“My husband and I listen to all kinds of different music and we were listening to some bellydancing music,” Steff said. “He suggested I take it up and I ran into a friend of mine who was teaching it and I went along with her. Now it’s my passion and I just love it.” It is a pastime that genuinely suits all shapes and sizes, all levels of fitness and no dancing experience is necessary. “If you have never tried bellydancing, then you must give it a try,” Steff said. “Belly dancing is a superb way to tone your muscles, keep your body fit, reduce stress and learn to feel comfortable about yourself.” It is also a perfect low impact option for people and perfect for core strengthening and it really does build self confidence. “I was extremely shy when I went along to my first class and I used to hide up the back but now I am up the front teaching the class,” Steff said. “As far as self confidence is concerned, bellydancing will help you appreciate and love your body and become more comfortable with it. If you have voluptuous curves or a few extra pounds, bellydancing can teach you to love yourself and see the sensual side of your body.” The classes run for an hour, with Term 1 seeing the introduction of the basic bellydancing moves and then Term 2 moving into the choreography of routines. “I usually go overtime , though, because I love it so much,” Steff said.

Classes are on Monday and Thursday nights and for more information you can call Steff on 0428 849 971, email hipjingle@gmail. com or send a message via facebook to the Alluring Gem Bellydance School.

BAD YEAR ON OUR ROADS SERVES AS A WAKE UP CALL FOR DRIVERS South Australia recorded an alarming spike in road deaths in 2017, with 101 lives lost compared to 86 in 2016. The Limestone Coast was not spared of this trauma with six lives lost last year. While there was a State-wide reduction in serious injuries recorded in 2017 573 serious injuries compared to 713 in 2016, the Limestone Coast went against that trend with an increase that saw 33 people seriously injured amongst the number of SE casualties. Police and members of regional emergency services and Local Government in the Limestone Coast joined in with the recent plea made by Chris Picton the South Australian Road Safety Minister for safer driving in 2018. Minister Picton said the 15 more deaths compared to the previous year should be a stark wake up call for everyone. Closer to home, preliminary data released by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) revealed a surprising trend here in the Limestone Coast; the over representation of older drivers. Of the 6 fatalities in the south east, 4 were over 40, none were under 25. Of the 33 serious crash injuries, 22 were over 40 years of age and only 5 were under the age of 25. “There is a misconception held by many that road safety is a problem for younger drivers” said Rob Forgan, Limestone Coast Regional Community Road Safety Officer. “When you look at the data for last year, clearly this isn’t so. It indicates that we have more mature drivers making some sort of mistake, leading to a needless fatality or life changing crash injury.“ Not wearing a seatbelt and speed continue to be major factors in serious ijury and fatalities, according to police Superintendent Grant Moyle, Officer In Charge, Limestone Coast Local Service Area. “Many lives could have been saved last year if people had worn seatbelts and stayed within speed limits,” he said. “Making sensible decisions every day we travel on the road is everyone’s responsibility, not just some of the time, but all of the time.” “This year, we want everyone to get to their homes and their families safe, every day they travel and we are determined in our efforts to keep people safe on our roads.”


MAYURA HEADS TO NATIONAL AWARDS NEXT MONTH

Back to back gold medals at the South Australian Tourism Awards is just reward for a business success story that really started in 1998. Mayura Station’s The Tasting Room is headed to the 2018 national tourism awards next month to represent South Australia after picking up consecutive Tourism Restaurant and Catering Services awards, honouring its unique, dining experience. But to understand why the boutique steak restaurant has been established on property at Mayura Station and off the beaten track, a history lesson is required.In a way, it starts with the decision of shareholders to sell Auspine. It freed up time for the late Adrian de Bruin to spend more time developing his passion – Wagyu beef. It was while on business in Japan that Adrian tasted this delicious Kobe Beef. “It had a beautiful texture and was a wonderfully flavoured meat – our beef didn’t taste like that,” Adrian said, back in June 2015. “When you order a steak in Australia they give you a steak knife, there’s no need for that with Kobe beef.” The love affair with this Japanese beef, which is basically Wagyu, saw Adrian buy his first Wagyu cattle out of Japan in 1998. And just as he had with the timber industry, Adrian started to value add to his own business. Mayura started breeding their own cattle and producing their own meat, rather than just sending their animals at the saleyards. It was also the business that saw Adrian’s son Scott return home and become the face of the Mayura Station operation. The Mayura Station operation makes the de Bruins the largest full blood Wagyu producers in the world. “I think I just like growing things and doing it well,” Adrian said. But soon a new challenge presented and The Tasting Room, as a concept, was born. “We were selling into some high end hotels, restaurants and casinos around the world and we could show them the cattle and the production systems and they were impressed,” Scott said. “That was lovely but they often said we’d love to eat some.” And The Tasting Room was born. It was basically a showroom kitchen, showcasing the different cuts of Wagyu for potential customers – it was the ultimate paddock to plate experience. “It was then a natural progression to open to the public,” Scott said. So since 2010, The Tasting Room has been building a reputation and a profile. The arrival of current head chef and manager Mark Wright (pictured above) in 2013 marked a new chapter for The Tasting Room and its now meteoric rise began. “Mark has taken it to the next level,” Scott said. “He is so passionate about the product we produce and so effective at showcasing it.” Scott likens The Tasting Room to a winery’s cellar door. “You try a bottle of wine in a restaurant and if you are travelling in that area, you go to the winery and try more of their wine,” he said. “People try Mayura Wagyu in a restaurant and then they find out where we are and come and visit to try more of our Wagyu.” And why wouldn’t they. The Tasting Room might be off the beaten track but it is in a stunning location, overlooking Canunda National Park. It is the genuine paddock to plate and farm

gate experience and Mark Wright is not just a chef, not just creating the dishes, but putting on a show as he provides an intimate yet relaxed interactive experience for diners, as he talks them through his dishes. In a way, it is no coincidence The Tasting Room has risen to such heights. Scott de Bruin is a steak man, Mark Wright is a steak man and they have been able to translate that passion into an award winning experience for others. “We are very fortunate that Mark shares our passion,” Scott said. “And our front of house staff are passionate too.” For the past few years, patronage of The Tasting Room has grown around 30 percent annually and the breakdown of visitors currently sits at 70 percent locally based clientele and 30 percent visitors. And like any successful business, while quality and consistency are the cornerstone of The Tasting Room, the willingness to continue to evolve has been pivotal. Another private dining room has been added, a kitchen scullery and a new a la carte menu is being developed. “One of the messages we are trying to get out there is we are not just about functions, The Tasting Room is for all occasions,” Scott said. And Mark Wright has turned out to be the perfect man for the job. Camping as a child, Mark Wright, and his family used to catch their dinner. They simply didn’t eat until the fish had been caught or the rabbit hunted down. “It wasn’t something where we tried for half an hour and gave up and went and bought fish and chips,” Mark said. And now as a chef, that hunter-gatherer mentality remains, only now he strolls through the garden daily to choose fresh ingredients to complement the Wagyu beef that is the hero of his dishes at The Tasting Room. The fond memories of fishing and chipping oysters off rocks in the Kimberley region inadvertently are a constant reminder to Mark of the importance of fresh produce. “I remember how eating those fresh ingredients tasted,” he said. While the Mayura Station Wagyu is the centrepiece of the menu, Mark has free rein outside of that to create his own dishes. “Now I get to showcase really good food cooked the way it should be,” he said. “And having to use arguably the best Wagyu in the world is hardly an imposition when putting a menu together.” And now, five years and two gold medals into his time at The Tasting Room, Mark couldn’t be happier or prouder of what the team ahs achieved. “The beautiful full-blood Wagyu beef is a great product to work with and it gives me the confidence to put dishes together where I know the protein is always going to be fantastic,” Mark said. “Scott has pretty much given me free rein so to speak to put together the dishes.” And Mark sees the interactive dining experience at The Tasting Room as one of the perks of the job. “It’s a two way street,” he said. “I enjoy that part of my job where I get to talk to the customers and talk about the Wagyu and my dishes. I like seeing their reaction to the food and I like highlighting things they might not have understood before. And they get to ask questions and they’ve never had the opportunity to ask anyone else and it’s a good platform, a good vehicle for that.” lifestyle1.net | 31

TWILIGHT CINEMA STICKS WITH FISHING THEME Marlin and Dory need your help ‘Finding Nemo’ at the Hooked on Portland Festival this Australia Day weekend. Finding Nemo will be hitting the big screen for another exciting Twilight Cinema event at the Portland Foreshore as part of the Hooked on Portland Festival on Australia Day at about 9pm, when light is appropriate. “Finding Nemo is one of the most iconic films of this generation and coincides perfectly with the theme of the Hooked on Portland festival,” Cr Rank said. “I recommend heading down early and getting a good spot on the grass ahead of all the action. “There will be children’s amusements all day and live music from local father-son duo Dean and Kane Outtram from 6pm to 9pm before the movie.” Cr Rank reminds residents to keep updated with all festival information by visiting the Hooked on Portland Facebook page.

HASHTAG TO WIN BIG AT HOOKED ON PORTLAND Win cash prizes and two nights’ accommodation at QUEST Portland Apartments by simply exploring Portland at the Hooked on Portland festival this Australia Day long weekend. Hooked on Portland will be running a ‘Explore Portland’ destination competition, which will see attendees competing to locate various hotspots around the festival where they will need to collect a stamp and take a ‘selfie’ at the location and upload to Instagram using the hashtag #hookedonportland. Glenelg Shire Council Mayor Cr Anita Rank said the competition would be a great way to promote Portland while giving tourists and locals the opportunity to discover our town. “It would be great to host the competition over the entire shire to showcase all of our beautiful attractions, however the competition locations must be in walking distance of each other,” Cr Rank said. “Competitors will be given a Hooked on Portland show bag full of goodies when they register, including a festival schedule, site map and ‘passport’ including instructions, prizes and a page dedicated to each location.” The competition will run from 10am to 6pm this Saturday, with registrations at the Portland Foreshore. Winners will be announced the following day at 10.30am at the Community Big Breaky hosted by the Portland Lions Club. Cr Rank said council expects the three-day seaside festival would attract thousands of visitors from across the border and around the state. “Hooked on Portland will be the only festival of its kind this Australia Day long weekend and will showcase local talent and vendors, as well as having attracted well-known live entertainment acts,” she said. “With only days to go, I encourage everyone to ensure they have locked in their accommodation and enjoy the weekend here in our beautiful shire.” To learn more, visit https://vfa.vic. gov.au/recreational-fishing/featured/ hooked-on-portland and like ‘Hooked on Portland’ on Facebook to keep up to date with all of the action.

SOUTH EAST YOUNGSTERS PART OF NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP WINNING LINE-UP It was nailbiting but they did it. The South Australian SAPSASA Boys Under 12 State cricket team has won the national championships and Tenison Woods College student Hamish Case and Allendale East’s Kaidyn Weber were part of the triumphant line-up. SA played Queensland in the title decider. The Maroons made 103, with Hamish taking three wickets, while in reply, SA overhauled that total in the final over with four balls to spare and with two wickets still in the sheds. Both boys play both junior and senior cricket in the Mount Gambier & District Cricket Association.

BASKETBALL & SKATING IN FOCUS Sharpen-up on your basketball and skating skills this Australia Day long weekend at the Hooked on Portland festival Youth Zone. Free skate and basketball skill sessions are part of a number of youth activities being hosted throughout the day on Saturday 27 January at the Portland foreshore as part of the three-day festival. Glenelg Shire Council youth development officer Cathryn Walder said Hooked on Portland’s Youth Zone organised by council in conjunction with FReeZA and the FReeZA crew members would include a large range of youth activities in a smoke, drug and alcohol free area. “FReeZA is a Victorian Government initiative that supports young Victorians to get involved in their community by planning and running drug, smoke and alcohol-free music and cultural events for other young people,” Ms Walder said. “We expect the Youth Zone to be extremely popular amongst local youth and tourists travelling to Portland for the festival with All Aboard Skateboarding Sessions hosting free skating clinics as well a bowl competition later in the evening. “Portland has one of the best skate parks in the region and these sessions and competitions always draw a large crowd to town. It is great to see this youth space being utilised in such a positive way.” Ms Walder said the Portland Basketball Association would also be hosting basketball skill sessions and competitions throughout the day. “Plaster art, giant Jenga, back-yard cricket and laser tag will also be available in the Youth Zone throughout the afternoon,” she said. “This zone is not only great for our youngest festival goers to come enjoy the festival, but it will give adults the opportunity to relax and watch some live music or a MasterChef session while their kids stay active.” The Portland Basketball Association is hosting skill sessions and competitions from 12pm to 1.30pm followed by All Aboard Skateboarding sessions from 2pm to 6pm with a bowl competition from 6pm to 7pm with prizes to be won. Laser tag will be available from 2pm to 4pm with plaster art, giant Jenga and cricket ready to play all day long.

Federal 6 def Central 4 Federal continued to hold sway over Central when they met in the early game of Division one baseball. Central opened the scoring in the top of the first. Brock Keding singled to centrefield and scored on Brad Lynagh’s centrefield single. Mark Kilpatrick picked a walk and scored on Wade Chant’s wild throw from centrefield giving Central their second run. Federal hit right back. Gavin Smith found himself at second after Lauchie Tilley missed a fly ball at leftfield and scored on Shane Howard’s infield fly. Alex Reppin walked and scored on Josh Wilsmore’s base on ball when bases were loaded. The third run came when Wade Chant found himself on board from a fielder’s choice and scored on Alex Pearson’s hit to Ethan Chuck at second base who errored. Central added one run in the top of the fifth. Coach Nathan Meinck singled to rightfield and scored on Koby Chant’s infield hit. The Demons again replied scoring three more runs of their own. Shane Howard singled to centrefield and scored on a balk by pitcher Mark Kilpatrick. Clay Carpenter walked and scored on Jack Howard’s infield hit to first base. Josh Wilsmore also picked a walk and scored from Kane McMillan’s single base hit to rightfield . Central’s final run came in the top of the ninth when Brad Lynagh walked and scored on Jack Howard’s error at rightfield from a hit by Koby Chant. Central out hit Federal seven to three but left ten runners on base to Federals eight. The Demons made five errors to Central four. Tigers 4 def South Indians 2 In the top of the third inning, Tigers Brayden Morton hit safely to leftfield and scored on a wild throw from the Indians second baseman Ben Morale in his attempt to put Tyler Horrigan out at first for the third out. The Indians replied in the fourth after Jesse Balshaw picked a walk and scored on a wild throw from Tyler Horrigan before the inning ended. Scored again in the bottom of the seventh. With two out, Tom Castleman was hit in the head by a pitched ball which subsequently took him out of the game. His substitute runner scored on Steve Isaccson’s deep double to centrefield. Tigers scored two in the top of the eighth. Tyler Horrigan found himself at first after his hit to Ben Nash at third and then the throw going wild. Karl ransom’s back to the pitcher, Bruce Morale was errored leaving two runners on base. They both scored on Joe Sims’ double to leftfield. Tigers final run came in the ninth. Brayden Morton picked up his second single for the night and scored on Tyler Horrigan’s missed fly ball at centrefield. Tigers out hit South eight to three, left ten to eight runners on base and made only two errors to four. All of the Tigers runs were unearned. The wins by Federal and Tigers makes a bottle neck at the top of the table and the final three certainly won’t be set until the last game of the season. South currently still on top by virtue of a better defensive run score with seventeen points, Tigers also on seventeen followed closely in third by Federal with sixteen points.

SOFTBALLERS SET TO COMPETE AT STATE TITLES Mount Gambier Softball League is proud to be represented in the A grade at the 2018 Senior State Championships over the upcoming Australia Day long weekend at West Beach after a five year hiatus. The team is looking forward to the inclusion of former SA Open women’s pitcher Jade Peterson, who currently leads the Adelaide A grade competition in strike outs already amassing 120 for the season - she is a former team mate of playing coach Leyna Bruggemann. Mount Gambier’s contingent is represented by players from all clubs in the local competition with a mixture of youth, experience and skill sets. Bruce Morale is chief umpire of the team, bringing with him his baseball experience and humour. Similarly humour and fun will certainly be high on the agendas of team managers Erin Chaplin and Dylan Walker. Late inclusion of Mount Gambier softball league stalwart in scorer Pam Weselowski will provide additional statistical expertise. The team will benefit from the enthusiasm, versatility and youth of the sister duo Montana and Mackenzie Millard, and the consistency and level headedness of Raquel Sneath who has had a sound season to date. Em Hart brings her leg speed and strong arm to the team, as does Bella Morale in addition to her willingness to play both infield and outfield positions. Newcomer to the local league, Anna Livingston, has led the competition from the front with consistent hitting from the left handed side of the plate. Her pitching will be instrumental in combating opposition teams from around the state. Quiet achiever Chelsea Fowler brings maturity to the team complementing her hitting strength; she gets on with whatever task is asked of her without fuss. The league’s 2017 batting average and runs batted in award winner Cody Manning’s long ball hitting will undoubtedly be imperative to the team’s success. Sarah Nieuwenhuizen’s return from injury has been successful and she has embraced the opportunity to fill the second base position. Unfortunately Steph John has been ruled out due to a leg injury. Old school campaigners Nic Vause and playing coach Bruggemann will be relishing the return to Adelaide and both intend to lead the team from the front with discipline, sportsmanship and tactical decision making. Bruggemann, in particular, is excited to be reteamed with Peterson having enjoyed over 10 years in the Adelaide A grade competition as a pitcher-catcher combination.

LINES CLAIMS SECOND KING’S CHALLENGE It was a title that eluded him until 2014 but 2013 World Series Sprintcar champion Steve Lines now has two – courtesy of a go to whoa victory in last week’s King’s Challenge at the Borderline Speedway. Lines has endured a challenging 2017/18 but feels the car is now starting to run better and more consistently and the home track win, just a week ahead of the 2018 Australian Sprintcar Titles at the Borderline Speedway, couldn’t have come at a better time. “We have been struggling a little bit with the new team but it was really good Thursday night,” Lines said. “I think we are starting to get it all together. We have been changing things on the car and I felt confident going into Thursday night’s racing. We are definitely making headway and from now on, we will hopefully find some consistency. I actually think the King’s Challenge could even be tougher racing than the national titles because you have the Americans in there as well. In a field like that you have to qualify art the front so you get the best of the racing and that’s what we did.” Lines claimed his second King’s Challenge ahead of James McFadden, with Carson Macedo third. It was a good night’s racing for the Glenburnie track as it gears up for the national titles. “It was a really good night and even though the heat affected racing and the main race started about an hour and a half after the scheduled time, no one left and the crowd was great,” club president Cary Jennings said. “It was a good night’s racing and we had 60 cars and the junior sedan support class was also good.” All eyes now turn to the January 25-27 national sprintcar titles with 80 cars set to contest the premier event. It sees 40 cars racing on Thursday, the other 40 on Friday with the entire field coming together for the final day’s racing. “There will be non-step racing and we are basically ready for the first race to start,” Jennings said. Volunteers battled the heat last week to complete the final corporate box and for the next week it will be all about maintenance ready for the three day racing frenzy. Most of the drivers set to contest the 2018 Australian Sprintcar Titles headed to Warrnambool at the weekend with rain affecting racing on Saturday night and seeing the postponement of the A-Main. IN good news for the locally based Ray Scott racing team, Brooke Tatnell, after a midfield finish in the King’s Challenge, won night one (Friday) at Warrnambool. Tatnell already has five national

titles to his name, including a three-peat from 2005-07, while reigning champions Kerry Madsen is gunning for his third successive title. The nation al titles are also on the horizon for street stocks and Mount Gambier’s Anthony Beare appears to be striking form at the right time, taking out the weekend’s MJS Street Stock round at Adelaide Motorsport Park – the same venue that will host the national titles on February 16 & 17. Beare started on the front of the grid with fellow Mount Gambier driver Mark Jennings but a puncture ended Jennings’ final. Another local, Jayden Edwards, also put in a good showing – starting the final from sixth and finishing fourth.
