COVER • REAL ESTATE MERGER COMBINES EXPERIENCE WITH ENTHUSIASM The recent merger of Herbert Real Estate and Complete Real Estate presents the combination experience and enthusiasm. The merger will maintain the strength of the Herbert name retaining the Herbert brand in the form of Herbert Commercial. The merger of these two complementary Real Estate Agencies will strengthen and provide a broader range of services For clients and customers it is business as usual with the experience of an established agency and the enthusiasm of the new management team from CRE under the leadership of Marika Hart and Matt Kain. “Complete Real Estate was established in 2010 with a business objective to offer the market an agency of professionals that conduct themselves at a standard of behavior reflective of the market which is demanding modern information based services,” Marika Hart said “Things will be the same for customers and clients with the combined economies of scale that benefits the community with a superior service” Mr Herbert said. The new partnership presents a greater strength in property management systems for residential and in commercial and Herbert Real Estate is arguably the strongest commercial presence in the region will be the location of the new business. The consolidated will take place into one premises at 7 Helen Street Mount Gambier. “There will be opportunities both in



sales and management for younger and enthusiastic people who are wanting to join our team” Mr Herbert said. Marika and Matt bring their own set of skills in the form of the residential arm of the business. “It is so exciting to have them on board and they have the knowledge and experience of marketing and technology that is necessary nowadays,” Mr Herbert said. For David Herbert commercial has always been the bulk of his work load since joining his father in the business in 1966 and it is his passion. “My focus ever since I started working with my late father has been commercial rents and values”. Mr Herbert has seen the most difficult economic times for this

region with the lowest levels experienced between 2011–2016,” Mr Herbert said “We survived the GFC but everything that happen with the timber industry had a big impact in a way that I never thought I would see here. The good news is the demand for property has expanded over the last 18 months and we see good economic times ahead with growth in property values.” Mr Herbert believes the merger has injected new life in the staff “and I am looking forward to the challenge of mentoring young people”. It is evident that Mr Herbert’s optimism of the local economic landscape going forward the future looks bright.

All the blinking in one day equates to having your eyes closed for 30 minutes.

MILLICENT & PENOLA February 21 (Millicent) & 22 (Penola)





LIMESTONE COAST OPERA OFFERS YOU A CHANCE TO RUB SHOULDERS WITH THE STARS Mount Gambier resident Chris Judd’s chance meeting with opera stars Michelle Buscemi and Mattia Campetti (pictured) on a solo holiday in Italy continues to bear fruit as the duo, with tenor Giancarlo Monsalve and their pianist and composer Stefano Teani, returning to Mount Gambier for a fourth visit. And each year, the opera event has expanded, evolving from that inaugural 2015 one off performance, to now include two concerts, heavy local involvement and in 2018, the inaugural Limestone Coast Opera/Lucca, Italy National Aria Awards. Those awards have attracted 60 entries and in good news for local interest, there are two locally produced vocalists in the final 20 that will not only compete for the awards on offer but also benefit from working alongside Australian born soprano

Michelle Buscemi, along with the rest of the visiting team. Limestone Coast Opera is now facing a new challenge as it looks to attract some last minute sponsorship to add to the coffers. It has seen organisers setting up a Friends of the Limestone Coast Opera and they are hopeful locals will jump on board this affordable level of sponsorship for the international standard weekend of music. For just $120 per single or $220 per couple, you can become a Friend of the Limestone Coast Opera, with that package entitling you to tickets to both Saturday and Sunday’s concerts, as well as the pre concert cocktail event on Saturday and the afternoon tea after Sunday’s concert and awarding of the Aria honours. “It gives you that chance to come and mingle with the performers,” Limestone Coast Opera

chair Bill DeGaris said. After enjoying solid grant support in 2017, Limestone Coast Opera is now looking for local support to continue to build the prestigious event and lift the profile of the Aria Awards. “We are exposing young people to good quality teaching and hopefully and an opportunity to go overseas and get experience in opera companies in Europe where we’ve got the contacts,” Mr DeGaris said. “We are expecting upwards of 200 entries for the Aria Award next year. It is basically four days of intensive training for those that make the final 20. They get trained in stage craft, musicianship, language and other aspects of performing besides the vocal training.” The public can also see the inner workings of opera by attending the final rehearsal on Friday, March 9, for just $20. That will also be a chance for school groups to be exposed to classical music for free. “It is a chance to not only experience top quality music but also see how they rehearse, how they prepare,” Mr DeGaris said. Saturday night’s concert is all about Michelle, Mattia, Giancarlo and Stefano, while on Sunday, the final eight finalists in the Aria Award perform two arias each before the final selections are made. The Sunday concert also includes local choirs with the Naracoorte Singers, Phoenix Music Studio and the Millicent Choir all taking up the opportunity to share the stage with opera royalty. Anyone interested in joining the Friends of the Limestone Coast Opera or securing a corporate package should head to the

website or facebook page for more details. Tickets are now available for both the March 10 and 11 concerts.

VAN DEN HURK WINS ANOTHER SINGLES TITLE Mount Gambier’s Andrew Van Den Hurk (pictured) has secured yet another Mount Gambier & District Tennis Association singles title on Sunday, beating veteran David Ferguson to claim the title, after Ferguson eliminated Glencoe team mate Dylan Childs from the championship race.

DRURY CLAIMS GLENCOE CUP AS THE HARNESS RACING COMMUNITY REMEMBERS SKYLAR Trainer-driver David Drury has claimed one of the first major pieces of silverware in the 2017/18 Mount Gambier Harness Racing Club season, piloting Yankee to the Glencoe Cup, on Friday night, at Greenwald Paceway. Yankee started favourite and did not let the punters down. Friday night’s crowd was also on hand to be part of race four - ShareacinowithSkylar Three Year Old Memorial Race as meningococcal B was in focus. Skylar Lawrence, who had strong connetions to this region through the Medhurst family, tragically lost her life last year after contracting the insidious disease. Her parents, Sally & Ash Lawrence, who live in Darwin, have used their grief to mount a campaign for the meningococcal B vaccine to be added to the national registry so it can be subsidised. The couple brought their campaign to Mount Gambier last weekend, after the Mount Gambier Harness Racing Club named a race in the 33 month old’s memory. The race meeting was all about raising awareness about meningococcal, with Sea Parade winning Skylar’s race, with the Barry Finnis trained Speechcraft, driven by Jayson Finnis, finishing second. Barry and Jayson are part of the close knit family rocked by Skylar’s death. Above - The Lawrence family. | 04

There is nothing like staying busy and Mount Gambier based singer-songwriter Tamara Seely is certainly doing that. In the throes of final preparations for her February wedding, Tamara is also finetuning her Adelaide Fringe debut. The good news for local fans is, if you’re not invited to her wedding or can’t get to the Kent Town Hotel, in Adelaide, on March 9, you can still catch Tamara when she brings her Fringe Show – My 90s Mixtape – the Mount Gambier Fringe, on March 16, at the Mount Gambier Golf Club. Tamara has written the show with Tenison Woods College music teacher Marie Holmes and she has brought some wonderful local musicians on board to round out the

performance – Laura Small, James Owen and Deanne Turner. Tamara sums up the show in two simple words – nostalgic trip. “Marie and I decided to write a 90s show dedicated to Australia – all Australian artists and bands,” Tamara said. “We started writing it in August last year.” And it all started to become very real with the first rehearsal last Saturday. For Tamara this style of show is a complete departure from her usual schtick – she is best known for performing her own songs or stunning cover versions at community events and venues across the Limestone Coast and beyond. “It’s a little bit different, a little bit of fun,” Tamara said. “It’s not just 90s pop, it’s 90s grunge, it’s a variety

of genres in one hour – it could have been a five hour show.” And that was one of the challenges – selecting the material to flesh out a one hour show. “The hardest part was narrowing down what songs we were going to use.” It is the first time Tamara has put together a show like this but she is looking forward to a more interactive format where the audience is so much a part of the performance. “There is no song from start to finish in the show,” Tamara said. “That’s where Marie has been fantastic. She has taken on the musical director role doing all the arranging.” Marie is also on keyboard and back up vocals, with James on drums, Laura on bass and Deanne on guitar. And once you’ve enjoyed Tamara’s first Fringe foray, you can sit back and wait for hew second EP, which is the project earmarked for 20187, in between her vocal teaching commitments and gigs.

ADVENTURER SET TO SHARE HER STORY AT LOCAL LIBRARIES The Naracoorte Public Library & Mount Gambier Library are hosting an Author Event with Linda Bootherstone, Australian author of Into Africa With A Smile. For more than 50 years Linda has travelled many countries and continents using a motorcycle. This book tells the story of Linda’s ride through Africa in 1974 at a time when few people venture into this continent, especially by motorcycle. Sahara sand, Congo mud and a bout of malaria in Kenya all add to the thrill of this fifteenmonth journey and, despite the many setbacks, Linda still keeps a smile on her face. Linda will be at the Naracoorte Library from 10am-11.30am on February 22 & Mount Gambier Library from 6.30-8pm on February 26. For bookings phone the Naracoorte Public Library on (08)8762 2338 or Mount Gambier on (08)8721 2540.

She didn’t experience the White Christmas she had been hoping for but Rotary exchange student Natika Fensom did enjoy a wonderful 12 month adventure during her stay in Denmark, as well as taking the opportunity to visit many other European hot spots. Leaving as a 15 year old, the Allendale East Area School student has recently returned, and the now, 16 year old, has already dived back into life at home, starting with her Year 12 studies. She feels like she has settled right back into life in Port MacDonnell but the memories are set to last a lifetime and Natika has definitely caught the travel bug. “That’s all I want to

do now,” she said. “I just want to keep travelling.” From learning the language to sight seeing around Europe, from working with younger Danish students to learning guitar, Natika admits not much school work was done but plenty was learned. “In Denmark, exchange students are so common that the teachers basically just say, as long as you come to class that’s fine, you don’t have to keep up with the work,” Natika said. “I think they realise that at the beginning, the language barrier is really difficult.” And tackling the Danish language was a challenge, but Natika felt after a couple of rocky months, she was able to start understanding most things, even if her responses were slow and by the time she flew home, her Danish was strong – she even had to give her final presentation to the host Rotary Club in Holstebro in Danish. One of her host mothers taught in a special education school and Natika spent most afternoons there, helping with the students. “It was one of the best experiences of my time in Denmark,” Natika said. “I worked with the really young students and they only spoke Danish so it was good for working on my language skills as well. I used to go to the library with them to read, and to gym class and then there was just playing together. It was really good.” A two week Euro Tour was also a highlight – almost like speed dating with Europe as she took in eight countries and around 16 destinations. She also went to Germany and Italy on week long adventures with one of her host families. “The whole trip was amazing and I really thank the Rotary Club of Mount Gambier West for the opportunity,” she said. Natika also became firm friends with one of her host sisters – Benedicta. “We became so close it was almost like we were sisters,” Natika said. While the official school work might have been scant, spending time with fellow exchange students and the local students was time well spent, and Natika also tried to be as involved as possible, taking on dancing, swimming and guitar lessons. “I am looking forward to getting back into my own routine but I also can’t wait to have a chance to experience other cultures again,” Natika said. “I just want to travel.” Above (top) - Natika Fensom back home.

2 red capsicums, thinly sliced 2 medium red onions, cut into quarters 1 bunch parsley 2 cups spinach 2 cups rocket

Method Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 4 and line two baking trays with baking paper. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil over a high heat. Add in the potatoes and cook for 7 minutes. Drain in a sieve, shaking up the potatoes so that they roughen up a little. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil, lemon juice and zest, garlic and a few crunches of sea salt and pepper. Add in the potatoes and stir with a spoon to coat well in the marinade. Place on the lined tray and roast for 40 minutes. Meanwhile, add remaining oil to the same large bowl. Add in capsicum and onions and coat well. Once potatoes have roasted for 25 minutes, add the veggies to the second tray, spreading out evenly so that no veggies don’t overlap. Roast for a further 15 minutes. In the last 5 minutes, switch your oven to the highest grill setting and cook until potatoes have started to crisp up. Meanwhile, in a large serving bowl, add in the parsley, spinach and rocket. Once potatoes and veggies are ready, add them to the bowl and stir through the leaves until they are coated in the residual oil from the veg.


DRIFTING RETURNS TO VALLEY LAKE Drift Challenge Australia is bringing drifting back to Mount Gambier for the third successive year with Irish driver Jack Shanahan the headline act. Considered one of the best drifters in the world, Shanahan will take on the Australian drivers in their own backyard and the only legal street drifting course in Australia. Running from February 16-18 at Mount Gambier’s Valley Lake, the cars hit the track at 9am every morning, with the competition going through until 5pm. Friday is open practice, Saturday will see more than 60 competition cars for the Pro National Practice before the Origin Australia Qualifying session, which narrows the field down to 32. That is followed by the 60-plus drivers competing in the ‘60 Minutes To Win It’ expression session, which is often one of the most intense sessions of the weekend. Sunday sees the top 32 go head-to-head in elimination style battles with the cream rising to the top. Once the top 32 is over the challenge round concludes with arguably the most anticipated part of the weekend for the drivers and spectators - the final expression session.

Happy New Year... and hasn’t it been an interesting one so far. The cool weather has been great for gardening and has given us plenty of opportunity to get outside and do some outdoor entertaining. So, too, have we been given the opportunity to look around the garden and see where we can add some much needed shade from that harsh summer sun we have been having !and even after the blast of heat here and there and that wonderful rain, it has certainly restored the planting spirit. We have been rushed off our feet since reopening after Christmas. We always think to winter to plant trees, especially deciduous trees, but the opportunity is not there to see exactly what part of the garden and home requires shading. I know I have just contemplated planting some more trees on the west side to cut the summer sun on the windows and help cool the rooms on that side. Trees have an amazing ability to be our own air conditioning and studies have shown the cooling effects of lawns and plants in so many ways and trees are amazing at reducing the temperatures and cutting out the harsh rays of the sun. Now is a good time to have a look around and even plant a mature or advanced shade tree. These come in many forms from evergreen, giving all year round shading, to deciduous, where the leaves will drop in winter to give added light. Deciduous trees again, come in many forms, from mop tops, where the size is governed by the

By Calum Haygarth Landscape Architect & Horticultural Consultant grafting and variety, so are good for courtyard shade and smaller spaces right throughout, to lightly foliaged trees, such as silver birch, then to larger, heavily foliaged shade trees such as maples and planes that can give fantastic shading to large and small areas. We currently grow more than 30 varieties of mop top trees at Limestone Coast Advanced Trees. Most of these are in our Summer Shade sale that is running NOW. Remember, too, that many of the older varieties of larger trees you may have been used to are now available in (dwarf) smaller or narrower versions, allowing you to have your old favourites in smaller situations. This winter we will be launching our new mini ornamental pear that is also narrow too, so order early if you would like some as we will only have limited stocks in this first release. Shade trees, hedges and especially fruit trees have been selling well since Christmas and now is a good time to plant as there is the whole growing season ahead of us. Look out for our 2018 releases of fruit trees and we have an Orchard Starter special on with any four advanced fruit trees for $145 on our coupon offer (see facing page). Many of our advanced and semi mature trees have been slashed to half price to make room for more stock coming through. These include Lipstick Maples, Golden Elms, Liquidambars, ash, elm and even half price mop top trees. If you are looking to plant a driveway or avenue of trees we have | 24

clearance on ornamental pears, in both the narrow, upright forms as well as more spreading varieties. So, if you are looking for a bargain and some instant sized trees, now is the time to get in as they are selling fast and we have limited numbers of one metre high plus Pittosporum Silver Sheens for just $19.95, but be quick as the sale has been on for a week now. Citrus, avocadoes, (inc. dwarf ) and even berry fruits can be planted now for crops in late summer and autumn. We have 50% off selected advanced fruit trees already in fruit for that “instant orchard” and more than $35 off miniature peaches and nectarines, in both yellow and white flesh varieties. The newly released dwarf plum and cherry varieties have been very sought after for their compact growth but abundance of fruit are now reduced to clear, not many people realise that these new breeds of

dwarf tree produce as much fruit as a full sized tree but can be netted more easily and pruned from the ground. All are ideal for pots. All wall art, giftware, ornaments, statues in our gift shop are up to 70% off,and just been added to the sale. The mighty strength of the Australian dollar when we purchased has allowed us to sell pots cheaper than five years ago and our outdoor furniture ranges are around $1000 less than last year. All concrete statues, ornaments and birdbaths, giftware and wall art are reduced to clear with up to 70% off prices, this includes our driftwood from the Philippines and metal oil drum animals, eskies etc. All concrete ware/ lightweight concrete ware, including troughs, large square and round tubs, are included, these are ideal for miniature fruit trees and dwarf citrus varieties, as they can last their entire life without transplanting, especially important with citrus trees, who resent root disturbance and we have minimum 25% off citrus, including double grafted citrus. Gardenarium and The Pot Shop also carries a wide range of solid teak garden furniture which has in the past been out of most people’s price range. With our direct importing we have brought prices right back to less than the flurry of Asian hardwoods that you see looking good in the showroom one minute and warping, cracking and splitting the next. Cast aluminium, which is corrosion free and lightweight, is great for chairs, especially with older people. These are also ideally suited to coastal areas. Our tiled top tables, solid sandstone tiled top tables, pale travertine topped and new for this year is our ceramic table which has been a huge hit, and being natural timber colouring in browns and greys as well which will match in with many colour schemes. We still have one eight seater square table and a few rectangular tables in the Roman range to clear all at fantastic prices, with the 3 metre long banquet table seating 12-14 people, a serious entertainers table, (see website for details) in both stone and aluminium. Grab your truck, trailer or ute and head in to Gardenarium & Limestone Coast Advanced Trees now and bag a bargain.

ROSE NURSERY OPEN DAY DOUBLES AS COMMUNITY FUNDRAISER Rose enthusiasts, aspiring gardeners and families looking for a day out are expected to converge on the popular Wagner’s Rose Nursery Open Day in April. Now in its sixth year, the day is designed to give people an opportunity to experience the unique rose nursery set in the heart of the Limestone Coast’s Kalangadoo region - to be inspired to grow roses, or simply to enjoy the food, wine and roses on offer. The family friendly day –held at the Nursery on the outskirts of Kalangadoo – will again be a major fundraiser for Penola Primary School, with students and parents throwing their support behind the event. “For the last few years we have had amazing support from the Penola Primary School, with each class presenting a stall of their own, including a cake stand, sausage sizzle and drinks van, whilst the Parent Club helped out on the gate and with car-parking,” said Nursery owner Brian Wagner. “We’re also fortunate to live in an area that has bountiful produce, and our neighbours Kalangadoo Organic Orchards with their apples are one of our most staunch supporters,” he said. To add to the food stalls available on the day will be a wood-fired pizza food truck, along with boutique cider and beer producers, and Coonawarra’s Grey-Smith Wines who will provide wine for sale by the glass and bottle. “The Penola Scouts will be selling cut flowers from our Nursery and there’ll also be hundreds of potted roses, including standards, available for purchase on the day, with loads of special ‘Open Day’ deals,” added Brian. “There’ll be plenty of entertainment to keep the kids busy including a jumping castle -weather permitting - for the younger ones, which frees up parents to really get out and enjoy the roses,” he said. Brian Wagner will again host ‘continual tours throughout the day in a relaxed paddock setting, whilst also being on hand to answer questions and provide information on rose growing. It will be the first chance for visitors to see the new 2018 rose releases, while also viewing a large selection of yearling and two year old rose bushes. Wagner’s Rose Nursery - spread over 50 hectares - grows more than 600 rose varieties for the wholesale market and has made a strong foothold in the online retail market with its ‘Paddock to Porch’ service. The Rose Nursery Open Day will be held on Sunday, April 8, from 10am to 4pm, with an entry of $8.00 per adult and children under 15 free. Visitors are recommended to wear enclosed footwear.

FESTIVAL SET TO RETURN IN 2019 Portland’s inaugural Hooked on Portland festival attracted more than 10,000 people to the region including international tourists, booking out accommodation, adding more than $2 million to the local economy over three days. Visitors from as far as Sydney travelled to Portland for the Australia Day long weekend festivities which were headlined by the Pierce Brothers, with cooking demonstrations from MasterChef’s and a fishing competition. Glenelg Shire Council Mayor Cr Anita Rank said the festival was a huge success after positive praise from the community. “The town was absolutely buzzing at the weekend as people overflowed from the festival into the township,” she said. “We are extremely excited to say Hooked on Portland is

locked in to return in 2019. It was a success from the start with hundreds

of people gathering on the Bentinck Street lawns on Friday evening for live entertainment from locals Dean and Kane Outtram followed by Finding Nemo on the big screen. Cr Rank said Saturday was the busiest day of the festival with people enjoying Hooked on Portland either down at the foreshore, on board one of the many tours offered or taking part in the fishing competition. “It was a very exciting day down at the foreshore on Saturday with the Triple J Hottest 100, Youth Zone, fishing talks from celebrity fishermen Aaron Habgood and cooking demos from MasterChef’s Eliza Wilson and Sam Goodwin,” Cr Rank said. “The Foodie Marquee was packed to the rafters the entire day with cooking

Mac’s Auctions

demonstrations from MasterChef’s and local chefs, as well as a filleting display from Reel Adventures’ Aaron Habgood. Aaron, Eliza and Sam worked incredibly well together and supplied a lot of entertainment beyond their cooking demonstrations. It was great to hear they spent Thursday out diving and cooking up local fresh seafood before the festival.” Cr Rank said the Hooked on Portland Fishing Competition played a large role in the success of the weekend with more than 180 registered competitors vying for $3000 in cash prizes. “The boat ramp was overflowing the entire day with fishermen launching their boats as well as those returning with some very sizeable catches,” Cr Rank said. Skipton’s Josh Cahill won the

heaviest salmon in the seniors at 2.075kg with Melbourne’s Evan Diaz winning the junior with a 1.66kg catch. Heaviest senior tuna went to Melbourne man Mason Shulze with a 25kg haul and local Glen Stephens winning heaviest senior gummy shark at 12.92kg. The heaviest king fish was claimed by Casterton’s Mark Nolte at 10.71kg with Portland’s Storrie family dominating the heaviest whiting with Andrew winning the senior category at 6.4kg and Hamish in the junior category with a 645g catch. Portland brothers and keen fishermen Lachlan and Jamieson Goldby were king of the snapper with Lachlan claiming the senior prize with a 2.160kg catch and Jamieson winning the junior prize with 1.555kg. Cr Rank said the live entertainment was sensational with Saturday night’s entertainment rocking the foreshore. “The entire festival congregated to the main stage as the night went on with sensational sets from This Way North, Sal Kimber and The Rollin’ Wheel, Mark Lang, Louise Adams and the Lost Era and headline act the Pierce Brothers,” she said. “The Pierce Brothers were incredible and absolutely rocked their set with their entertaining antics all night. They had the entire crowd on their feet dancing the whole time. It was the perfect ending to a fun day. After a very successful weekend in Portland, we are excited to say Hooked on Portland will be back bigger and better next year.” Above (left) - Hooked on Portland 2018 headline act, the Pierce Brothers rocking the stage on Saturday night.

Wood Wine and Roses president Ross Barclay said this year’s festival would have the biggest assortment of entertainment yet. “We made sure we brought back all of the best and most valued entertainment we have had throughout the 25 years of Wood Wine and Roses to ensure the community can celebrate this milestone for the full 12 hours,” Mr Barclay said. “The festival starts at 11am and is packed full of activities and entertainment for community members of all ages, we have made sure there is something for everyone.

Glenelg Shire Council Mayor Cr Anita Rank congratulated volunteers who have dedicated their time to organising this iconic event. “Without the outstanding efforts from this large band of volunteers, this festival wouldn’t be possible and they have done a brilliant job to attract a long list of talented entertainers and musicians,” Cr Rank said. “Wood Wine and Roses is a must see event on the shire’s calendar each year. I encourage all residents to mark this year’s event in their diary and help celebrate 25 years of a truly fun community festival.” Tickets are available at the gate with $25 for adults, $15 pension concession and 15 to 17 years of age and children under 15 free.

SINGING THEIR WAY TO SUCCESS The past 12 months have been huge for Mount Gambier’s Mayfair Singers and they re hoping it has laid the foundation for an even bigger 2018. A new home, a new website, a new uniform, a new logo and a couple of new programs were all part of the evolution of Mayfair Singers in 2017. Built on a three year strategic plan, which covered 2016-18, Mayfair Singers are looking to rebuild as one of the last community choir organisations in the region. They are now settled in their new home at the Old Courthouse and president Shylie Barry couldn’t be happier as Mayfair Singers launch into 2018. “We had been looking for a new venue for about two years,” Shylie said. “The challenge was finding somewhere we could leave all our stuff but also somewhere affordable.” Shylie admits she had always dreamed the choirs would call an historic building home and by chance that is how things have panned out. “I was driving past the Old Courthouse and decided to stop and give the number a call,” Shylie said. “It turned out they were looking for a new tenant after the arts society moved out and the timing was perfect. We had sung for the National Trust at open days before. It is one of the benefits of being around town for a long time. They knew what we were about.” In a twist of fate, Mayfair Singers’ greatest triumph – its 2014 CD release and 20 year celebrations – kickstarted a decline for the group and that is where the strategic plan and a strong vision for the future of the community choirs stemmed. “We realised we had to do something to stay current or we’d have folded,” Shylie said. “When Mayfair first started it was for kids coming out of the Primary Schools Music Festival. Obviously if these kids were coming to choir outside of school they had a real passion for it. We were recording and travelling a lot and the standard was high.” But Mayfair has always been about sharing music and being inclusive and a return to the grassroots of why community choirs exist was the first step before the more formal blueprint – the strategic plan – was created. “It’s what makes us different,” Shylie said. “It’s the look on the faces of our singers when they walk away from a rehearsal. We aim for them to be happier than what they were when they walked in and that applies to the singers and audiences.” Mayfair had also significantly reduced its public performances and as a result, its profile, and re-establishing its name and reputation in the general community was a huge part of the 2016-18 plan. There was the website, you tube and facebook but Mayfair Singers also started taking even their rehearsals to the streets of Mount Gambier, in a bid to feel accessible and the choir for everyone and anyone. “WE just decided that every now and then we would head out into the community to rehearse and people could see what | 32

it was all about and it didn’t have to be a perfect polished performances,” Shylie said. “We went to the Rail Lands, did one at the hospital, did one at the Rotary Market and it was well received.” Another strategy for getting out more and making music accessible for everyone was Pub Singers – a program instigated last October. “Pub Singers is all about breaking down barriers – you don’t have to be amazing at singing,” Shylie said. “Being part of a choir is about so much more than the music and I think that’s why Mayfair’s really special, it is a social support network.” One a month, Shylie and her team head to the South Aussie Hotel having arranged a pub classic in three part harmony and ready to make a one night only choir out of patrons. “We have some drinks and laugh a lot,” Shylie said. “We video it and put it on facebook and it’s been really well received.” A steady group of around 20 have attended Pub Singers and while it is all part of Mayfair Singers adapting with the times and lifting their public profile, it is also a recruitment tool, with Shylie hopeful, the non-confronting introduction to choir singing might inspire some of the pub patrons to join the group. “We are hoping to attract even more people to Pub Singers this year,” Shylie said. “The more the better. The sound is better and the people don’t feel as intimidated. We understand that singing is a very personal thing and it is brave to come out and sing but once people have done it, they do love it.” Shylie is also hopeful the program will be part of the 2018 Fringe in Mount Gambier next month. “That will also put us on a different platform again,” she said. Also new in 2017 was vocal lessons. “We had never done that before in our 24 year history,” Shylie said. “But we

decided to branch out into that area, to keep us relevant and we saw it as an important next step.” Also a new string to their bow, is the corporate team building offered by Mayfair Singers. “It is definitely team building with a difference but we think it will be fun and worthwhile,” Shylie said. “It gets people outside their comfort zone and they end up with a product at the end that was fun to create.” It is really the workplace version of Pub Singers and Shylie is confident it will be another successful move by the evolving community choir. Funding gained through the Stand Like Stone Foundation last year has also seen Shylie able to head to Melbourne for some training of her own – focussing on the Estill method of vocal training. “We had decided that if we received any grant money or also our fundraising would go towards professional development and it was great to be able to attend that workshop,” Shylie said. Mayfair currently runs three choirs – a combined junior and inter choir for students aged 5-12, a high school choir up to 18 year olds and the senior choir. “You don’t need to be able to read music and there are no auditions,” Shylie said. “You must, however, be prepared to have a lot of fun in a safe, encouraging environment.” Mayfair Singers annual general meeting is on February 12 at 6.30pm at the Old Courthouse.

ARMY CADETS ON A LOCAL RECRUITMENT DRIVE Mount Gambier’s 48 Army Cadet Unit has planned a number of activities throughout the year that cadets will find challenging and rewarding. One of the activities planned is three days at the RAAF Base Edinbugh, in Adelaide, where the cadets will have the opportunity to use the Weapons Training Simulation System (WTSS). The WTSS is like a large computerised indoor shooting range where the cadets will conduct weapons handling and safety drills before firing the F88 Austeyr rifle. The Australian Army Cadets is a leading national youth development organisation with the character and values of the Australian Army, founded on a strong community partnership that fosters and supports an ongoing interest in the Australian Army. The cadets are taught radio operations, fieldcraft, navigation and first aid. The Army Cadets also teaches teamwork and leadership skills whilst instilling the Australian Army Cadet Values of Courage, Initiative, Teamwork and Respect. The 48 Army Cadet Unit parades on Friday nights from 6:30-9:30pm during the school term. The cadets are open to girls and boys who are 13 years of age and have commenced Year 8 at school.

NEW TRADE DEAL A BOON FOR FARMERS The Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) will mean big benefits for farmers in Barker, according to Member for Barker Tony Pasin. Beef, sheep, dairy, wine, horticulture, seafood, cereal and grain commodities are all set to see better prices flow to the farm gate by making these products more competitive in CPTPP countries. “Australia already exports $12.3 billion of agricultural products to CPTPP countries, and this deal will speed up growth in the Pacific region,” Mr Pasin said. The agreement will deliver 18 new free trade agreements between the CPTPP parties. For Australia that means new trade agreements with Canada and Mexico and greater market access to Japan, Chile, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam and Brunei. “The CPTPP is a multi-billion-dollar win for jobs, businesses, farmers and consumers in Barker who are already seeing the benefits of other recent trade agreements,” said Mr Pasin. The CPTPP will eliminate more than 98 percent of tariffs in a trade zone with a combined GDP of AUD 13.7 trillion.

KEEP PETS SAFE AND OUT OF PARKS Natural Resources South East is reminding the community that dogs are not permitted in the State’s national and conservation parks. Natural Resources South East team leader Public Lands Brian Robins said it is important for dog owners to stick to the rules, for the safety of both wildlife and beloved pets. “As part of our pest animal management program we lay fox baits in a number of local parks,” Mr Robins said. “The program aims to protect native birds and other native animals from feral animals. The baits are effective on foxes, but unfortunately can also be deadly to dogs. Dogs can also disturb and destroy native wildlife, which can be especially sensitive in our coastal parks.” Information is displayed at the entrances to a number of parks, including those targeted in the baiting program. Canunda National Park, Beachport Conservation Park, Little Dip Conservation Park and Piccaninnie Ponds Conservation Park are all included in the baiting program. “We urge owners to keep their pets safe and out of conservation areas,” he said. Please note dogs are allowed on the beach below the high water mark in Coorong National Park, but must be on a leash.

STRANGE INVENTIONS ON SHOW From his isolated workshop Henry Hoke produced a stream of dazzling leaps of mechanical imagination. Unaccountably, until recently discovered, these brilliant tools had all but disappeared. From the Leg Pull, Waterproof Tap, Tartan Paint, and Mechanical Runaround, to his final extraordinary master work, the Random Excuse Generator, discover the story of an unsung inventive genius whose ideas could still revolutionise the modern world. Some of his strange inventions are now on show at the Millicent Information Centre Gallery, including his Clockwork Car. The exhibition runs until February 28, with the gallery open from 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday, and from 10am-4pm on weekends. | 33

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - MY BIG FAT GAY WEDDING... By ROBBIE TANSEL So gay marriage was legalised in Australia on December the 9th. Given that couples have to lodge a notice of intended marriage a month before they can be married, by my calculations gay and lesbian couples could legally marry as of January 9th. I haven’t been noticing a sudden increase in gay weddings though. I thought I would have seen some photos from gay weddings on social media. Maybe some gay wedding announcements in the local papers. I thought I would have been receiving quite a few invitations to gay weddings. But nothing. So what’s up with that?! I think what might have happened is that the gay and lesbian community have realised what they’ve opened themselves up for. It’s one of those things, where if you’re not allowed to have something, you really want it. But then when you get it, you realise it’s actually not that good after all.

For a long time a gay or lesbian may have been pressured by their partner to get married. They could very easily then say to their partner, “I’d love to, dear/sweetie/sugar/honey (insert your own cute pet name here). But unfortunately that damn government just won’t allow it. If only they’d spend hundreds of millions of taxpayer money on a plebiscite asking the people of Australia what they think, they might be able to pass a bill in parliament. But until that damn government does something, we can’t fully express our love, the way those lucky heterosexuals can.” The truth of the matter is that lots of homosexuals are commitmentphobic like the rest of us. They don’t want to spend the rest of their life with one person. Why would they want to? I can’t think of anyone that I’d want to commit to for my whole life. They’d have to make a really good pizza. And the gay and lesbian communities had the great out that legally they couldn’t get married. Every heterosexual guy in the world wishes he had that excuse. “Sorry, love. We can’t get married because the government says so.” I’d actually been telling Donna for years that I thought I was a lesbian so we couldn’t get married, but she wasn’t buying it. Suddenly the gays and lesbians don’t have an excuse, but they’re not getting married. They realise what they’ve done. I think in theory they wanted to be able to get married because fair’s fair, but they didn’t actually want to do it themselves. They’ve been watching miserable heterosexuals get tricked into getting married for years and seen how it stuffs everything up. Men in particular get tricked into getting married. Women convince them it will make them happy, when in fact everything changes. Not in a positive way either. Possibly the other thing that is holding the gay marriages up a little is the fact they’re struggling to find someone who will buy their kidney off them. Weddings are expensive. | 37

You’re certainly not going to be able to save up for one in the month they’ve had available to them. Adding the word wedding in front of anything multiplies the cost incredibly. Cake, affordable. Wedding cake; put all of your belongings on eBay. Flowers, a bit pricey really. Wedding flowers, go and beg and plead with your bank manager. I guess sensible gay and lesbians would have been saving for all these years for this moment, but sensible people don’t spend all their money on Kylie Minogue tickets. I spent half an hour thinking of an appropriate gay and lesbian stereotype to finish that sentence, so apologies that that was the best one I could come up with. If you want to email me at and criticise me, I’ll accept that I’m ignorant but not homophobic. If you want to critique my stereotyping, keep in mind that I generalised that every single man is commitment-phobic.

Roast Potato Salad 6 medium new potatoes, cut into 2cm chunks 3 tablespoons olive oil 1 lemon, juice and zest 2 cloves garlic, minced Sea salt and freshly ground black

pepper, to taste 2 red capsicums, thinly sliced 2 medium red onions, cut into quarters 1 bunch parsley 2 cups spinach 2 cups rocket

Method Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 4 and line two baking trays with baking paper. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil over a high heat. Add in the potatoes and cook for 7 minutes. Drain in a sieve, shaking up the potatoes so that they roughen up a little. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil, lemon juice and zest, garlic and a few crunches of sea salt and pepper. Add in the potatoes and stir with a spoon to coat well in the marinade. Place on the lined tray and roast for 40 minutes. Meanwhile, add remaining oil to the same large bowl. Add in capsicum and onions and coat well. Once potatoes have roasted for 25 minutes, add the veggies to the second tray, spreading out evenly so that no veggies don’t overlap. Roast for a further 15 minutes. In the last 5 minutes, switch your oven to the highest grill setting and cook until potatoes have started to crisp up. Meanwhile, in a large serving bowl, add in the parsley, spinach and rocket. Once potatoes and veggies are ready, add them to the bowl and stir through the leaves until they are coated in the residual oil.

NEW CONCERT SERIES SET TO SPARK ARTS SCENE Fresh from their recent Hooked on Portland performance, musical duo This Way North are returning to Portland to headline the first ever Small Night In at the Portland Arts Centre. The high energy group will perform at the Arts Centre on Friday, February 16, at the Small Night In event, with drinks and pre-show entertainment starting from 6.30pm. Glenelg Shire Council arts and culture manager Susie Lyons said the performance promised to entertain and enthrall music lovers. “We are thrilled to be able to bring This Way North back to Portland to grace the stage of the Portland Arts Centre for an evening of contemporary music,” she said. “Hailing from Melbourne, the guitar/drums two-piece band brings power drumming and compelling alt-pop melodies to their unique and exciting sound, which is often likened to that of The Black Keys and Tame Impala. The group have been touring nonstop since the start of 2017, playing at national and international festivals including Wide Open Space in Alice Springs and Atmosphere Gathering in Canada. With pre show entertainment and drinks on offer before This Way North (pictured) hit the stage, the first ever Small Night In event is sure to appeal to music lovers of all ages and interests.” Ms Lyons said there were further Small Night In events planned for

2018 for the community to look forward to. “The concept behind Small Night In was to create a series of an inviting, fun and laid back events which celebrate contemporary live music,” she said. “For four Fridays of the year we will throw open the doors to the after work crowd to enjoy music, food and drinks, with acclaimed artists from across Australia performing at our intimate venue. For our next Small Night In during May we will welcome Mark Lang from Skipping Girl Vinegar fame who will launch his debut solo release as part of his national launch tour. Mark also performed at Hooked on Portland, so his sounds will be familiar for local

audiences. We are excited to see what the rest of 2018 will bring for Small Night In and we can’t wait to reveal who the remaining artists will be - these events can only get bigger and better.” Tickets to Small Night In: This Way North are available for a flat rate of $30 and can be purchased online via www. or by contacting the Portland Arts Centre directly on (03)5522 2263. Further event details are available by visiting the Portland Arts Centre facebook page at portlandartscentre/.


ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS FOR KINGSTON TRIATHLON THIS WEEKEND Entries are building up quickly for the Naracoorte Toyota 2018 Kingston SE Triathlon, with the local triathlon club putting the final preparations into the 30 year anniversary celebrations. Beginning in 1988, the triathlon was a single-race event put together by a keen group of local volunteers. Club president Ali Stillwell said the event’s longevity is a credit to the hard working volunteers and support from the local community. “We receive many positive comments about the event, with the excellent location and crayfish prizes a highlight,” she said. “The Kingston SE event has had the benefit of numerous committee members with an enthusiasm to see this rather unique sporting event succeed and become a regular fixture on the Kingston calendar. The local community gets a lot of enjoyment from the event each year also.” Since its inception the event has transformed, with it progressing to the level of hosting an ITU World Olympic Distance Age Groups Qualifying Race and being part of the SA Olympic Distance Championship from 2007 to 2014. The popular event has been part of the State Triathlon Series since 1991 and receives elite athlete entrants from all over competing. “We will mark this anniversary with many prizes and commemorative awards,” said Ali. “We hope to welcome past organisers, past participants and volunteers who have helped during the last 30 years to enjoy the day with us. There will be lots of reminiscing and special moments over the Triathlon weekend that will not want to be missed.” For more information head to or follow the Kingston SE Triathlon on facebook.

named coach of the all star line-up. The team’s youngest member, Mackenzie Millard, led the way for Mount Gambier in the finals series, proving herself to be extremely reliable with the bat and in the field. She secured two safe hits in the title decider, as did dependable hitter Anna Livingston, whose double in the third inning broke the game open to score the first run of the game. Bella Morale stepped to the plate in the fourth innings hitting a double off Centrals pitcher and tournament MVP Chelsea Meyer, to score the second run. Centrals fought back in the fifth innings scoring a run off the ever consistent pitcher Jade Peterson but it was not enough,

they struggled to get runners in scoring position and got caught stealing twice. Nic Vause had an outstanding weekend securing eight safe hits. All players contributed with Em Hart getting on base and roaming the outfield with Chelsea Fowler and Raquel Sneath. Montana Millard took everything in at third base while swinging the bat hard. Sarah Nieuwenhuizen benefitted from the experience of facing faster paced action and her Demons team mate Cody Manning more than lived up to her reputation as a long ball hitter by winning the women’s home run derby. Umpire Bruce Morale was in everything, he came second in the men’s home run derby, as well as assisting with grounds keeping and coaching. He even took the opportunity to have his feet massaged by professional softball players from Japan who were playing against the Aussie Spirit team. The support staff in Pam Weslowski, Dylan Walker and Erin Chaplin braved the weather, backing the team in the whole way as did the supporters that made the journey to Adelaide.

Due to track renovations the South Coast Cycling Club held their annual Australia Day Track Carnival at Mount Gambier Cycling Clubs Velodrome. It’s been quite a few years since a meeting has been held at the Velodrome so the Mount Gambier club decided to take advantage of this and run a meeting of their own back to back with South Coast. Matthew Opperman, Amy Wight, Tess Wight, Justin Beecher & Niel Von Niekerk were the Mount Gambier riders who took up the rare opportunity, rather than travelling to Hamilton, Bendigo, Melbourne or Adelaide to be able to race. Niel performed brilliantly on Friday’s 33 event program with a first in his C Grade Heart Starter & two second places, Tess secured a first in her Junior B Grade Scratch Race & a second, Justin picked up a first in his B Grade Heart Starter race & a third, Matthew finished second in his Senior B Grade Handicap & Amy secured a third in her B Grade Heart Starter Race. It was also great to see the faces of club legends Allan Dowdell, Doug Issell & Ray Bilney light up to see bikes back racing at our track. At the start of the South Coast’s presentations Tess Wight was presented with a scholarship from the Wal Smith Cycling Foundation, a great honour for a young cyclist in this region to receive in recognition for her achievements over the past year. On the Saturday, the Mount Gambier Cycling Club ran a shorter 23 event program due to the temperatures expecting to hit 37 degrees by the middle of the day. The Mount Gambier riders again performed well, all gaining at least one first place and seeming to prefer the different program with the juniors running in their age groups rather than in their grades as was the case on Friday. Niel dominated in his classes with two first places in his scratch races, Justin improved immensely with a first in his handicap event &

three second places, Amy took out a first in her handicap race along with two second places & a third. Tess closely followed with a first in the Junior Women’s Wheelrace, a second & two third placings and Matthew also improved from Friday with a first in the C/D Grade Wheelrace, a second & third placing.

Tess Wight finished third; One of the tightest finished of the day was the C/D SCratch race where South Coast Cylcing Clun’c Seth Gilbert pipped Kilkenny’s Emma Seeliger at the line; Kilkenny’s Simon Eglington powered to the line to win the A/B Grade Scratch race from South Coast’s Sean Hennessy.



SPORT DOUBLE HEADER WEEKEND Back to back double headers were played in Division 1 baseball at the weekend with Central up against Tigers on Friday night and South pitted against Federal on Saturday. In game one on Friday it was a tight affair with Tigers victors by a solitary run. Centrals scored their first run in the bottom of the second. Consecutive singles to Jeremy Aston and Koby Chant ultimately saw Aston cross the plate from Lauchie Ridding’s infield hit. Tigers replied in the top of the fourth when Brodie Foster singled, as did Steve Frost. Foster scored when Frost’s hit got past Brock Keding at leftfield. Tigers scored again in the sixth as Brodie Foster picked a walk and scored on Dyllan Lane’s single into leftfield. Not to be outdone, Central replied in the bottom of that inning when Kyall McClean doubled to centrefield and managed to cross the plate from a wild pitch by Tiger pitcher Tyler Horrigan tying the score at two all. At the top of the eighth, Brodie Foster’s bat still worked a treat when he hit a two bagger into rightfield. He scored on a Jesse Foster hit into the infield. Unfortunately for Central they could reply this time leaving Tigers the winners three runs to two. In the second game Tigers scored two runs in the bottom of the first. Brayden Morton and Tyler Horrigan both found themselves on base as the result of consecutive errors from Lauchie Ridding at second base. Morton scored on an infield hit from Karl Ransom and Horrigan scored on Brodie Foster’s single. In the top of the fifth Central’s Koby Chant got on board from a wild throw from first base Dyllan Lane and scored on Lauchie Tilley’s hit into an error. Tilley scored on Nathan Meinck’s double to deep leftfield. Ethan Chuck and Dylan Chuck (pictured), in the meantime had both picked a walk and they too scored on Meinck’s hit giving Central a four run to two lead. Tigers replied in the sixth with one run after Brodie Foster walked and scored on Dyllan Lane’s leftfield single before that inning ended. Tigers final run came in the bottom of the seventh. Jesse Foster walked and scored on Brodie Foster’s Hit to leftfield which was dropped by Alex Ridding leaving the game in a tie, four runs each. On Saturday, in game one between Federal and South Indians, Indians came out on top winning four runs to nil. Half their runs happened in the top of the second inning. Damien O’Dine singled to leftfield and scored when with bases loaded and Ben Nash was hit by a pitch. Travis Lockwood found himself at first after an error by pitcher Alex Reppin and scored on a wild throw from third baseman Shane Howard. The other half of their runs came in the top of the sixth. Damien O’Dine found himself on base again after an error by first baseman Clay Carpenter and scored on Travis Lockwood’s infield hit. Steve Issacson also got on board base thanks to another error and scored the Indians final run when he crossed the plate due to a fielders choice. Game two saw South score a single run in the second. Travis Lockwood onboard from a fielders choice and scored on a wild throw from Federal shortstop Alex Reppin. Federal replied with two in the top of the third. A safe hit to Alex Reppin and a hit pitched ball to Wade Chant saw them both cross the home

plate from Nathan Taylor’s deep hit to centrefield. The Indians added six runs in the bottom of the fourth due to some good hitting and a series of walks. Steve Issacson walked and stole home, Travis Lockwood also picked a walk and scored on Ryan Walter‘s single, and he scored on Jesse Balshaw’s single to rightfield. Tom Castleman doubled and crossed the plate on Bruce Morale’s single, Jesse Balshaw scored from Dean Hamilton’s infield hit and Bruce Morale crossed home on a wild pitch before the side was eventually all out. They added two more runs in the fifth. Ryan Walter picked a walk and scored on a wild throw from catcher Josh Wilsmore and Ben Nash hit safely to first base and scored on another wild pitch. The Demons could only muster one more run in the game when Nathan Taylor found himself at first after being hit by a pitched ball and scored on Clay Carpenter’s error hit to second base leaving South victors nine runs to three.
