COMING EVENTS

COVER • AUSTRALIAN FIRST FOR KEMPS KRUSHERS Kemps Krushers is a local family owned and operated business servicing rural land in the South East South Australia and Western Victoria areas, with furthers areas available upon discussion. Garry and Jodi Kemp are very excited with the arrival of their new Fendt 1050. It’s Germamy’s most sophisticated and powerful tractor and it’s the first one to be sold and delivered in Australia. The state-of-the-art Fendt equipped with their FAE rock crusher is the perfect combination for converting unproductive paddocks into prime farming land. Their machine can go from depths of

150mm to an impressive 500mm with the press of a button from the cab, crushing stones, solid reef and shredding large tree stump plantations converting unproductive paddocks into prime farming land. Garry has been on the family farm his whole life and five years ago took over the management and running of the farm. After years of frustration with the amount of rock on the property and unable to work it to its full potential the idea developed. Living in the region, Garry has been working with local farmers the past 12

months towards improving their farming land and has been getting great feedback with the results produced, some of the responses have been: “...exceeded all my expectations...” “...incredible...” “wow, can’t believe it can do that...” Garry said these improvements are not just a first year expense or outlay, they’re an improvement that will impact their farming business and potential for the life of their property. Visit their website www. kempskrushers.com.au and watch their own included videos to see what Kemps

machines can do for your property. Come and see Garry and Jodi at the SE Lucindale Field Days on the 16th and 17th of March. Their Fendt 1050 tractor and rock crusher will be located at site number 628.

HISTORIC NIGHT AT GREENWALD PACEWAY

Following the Mount Gambier Harness racing Club’s Gold Cup heats, Terang trainer Matt Craven believed the two favourites – Emain Macha and Bee Gees Bandit – were a class above and his top runner, and defending champion, Kimani would need a lot to go right to secure back to back silverware. As it turned out on Saturday night, in the final of the Baxter Hire & Sales Mount Gambier Gold Cup final, everything did go right for Kimani and he became the first horse in 45 years to win successive Gold Cup titles. The Gold Cup final is a standing start race – a rarity for many of the competing drivers and horses – and it does bring with it the potential for things to go horribly wrong at the start.

That was the story for the Finnis family’s Bee Gees Bandit – one of the two favourites heading into the cup decider. Bee Gees Bandit missed the start alarmingly in the heat but recovered to still take the win but he gave even more of a start to the field on Saturday night and was never in contention. Emain Macha did not get away cleanly either, suffering some minor interference and while the quality, Naracoorte trained pacer was always in the mix, he arguably had to do more work early than he would have liked. “We definitely had a bit of luck at the start,” winner trainer Matt Craven said. “We were able to make the most of things that didn’t go the way of the favourites.”

Kimani finished the strongest of the field and driver Jason Lee was able to celebrate a good distance from the winning post, acknowledging the crowd as he claimed his maiden Gold Cup. “It was a great night for Jason (Lee),” Craven said. “We are fortunate he is happy to go to Mount Gambier and he is one of the best drivers going around. He has a good group of mates there, too, and I think they would all be celebrating with him.” Kimani had been set for the Gold Cup defence since Christmas. “We love going to Mount Gambier,” Craven said. “There is always a terrific crowd and a great atmosphere and it sucks you in a little bit. When you look back at the history of the race a lot of nice horses have won so it is really pleasing.”

The Gold Cup victory may well have been Kimani’s Greenwald Paceway swansong with Craven looking to move the pacer to Perth. “I think that’s where we’ll probably continue his career,” Craven said. “Kimani is good in the standing starts and got good speed in mobiles and I think racing in Perth will really suit him.” Kimani won the 2018 Gold Cup from Okelerho Lad and Emain Macha in third. Craven’s other runner – Diamond Jasper – finished fourth. Above (from left) - Gold Cup winning driver Jason Lee can’t hide his joy; Kimani became the first horse to claim back to back cups in 45 years; spokesperson for the owners Mick Lamond & Emily Turley sang the national anthem.

MOUNT GAMBIER CYCLIST SET TO REPRESENT AUSTRALIA Year 12 Tenison Woods College High Performance Sports Program student, Luke Wight (pictured) has been selected into the Australian U19 Men’s Endurance Cycling Team for the 2018 UCI Junior Track Cycling World Championships. The competition will be held between 15-19 August in Aigle, Switzerland. Luke’s position on the team was finalised after competing in the 2018 Cycling Australia Track National Championships, which were held at the Anna Meares Velodrome in Brisbane from 1-4 February this year. Luke won a bronze medal for the U19 Men’s 3km Individual Pursuit, which secured his place in the 13-member squad for the World Championships. Not surprisingly, Luke is part of the Tenison Woods College High Performance Sports Program. Luke has been cycling for seven years and will meet his team mates and coaches at a May training camp.

What I am fighting for... 10 year Moratorium on Fracking

Biomass Energy $20m

Airport upgrade

Implementation of my policy for a 10 year moratorium on fracking in the South East. Protecting our aquifers and environment is paramount.

With increases of 200% for energy, Bioenergy remains an untapped renewable baseload power source in South Australia.

With our tourism visitation increasing, it is vital for our region that the Mount Gambier Airport be of the highest quality. For our region’s growth, this is the highest Infrastructure priority.

Indoor Aquatic and Recreation Centre

$10m Sporting Infrastructure Fund

Mental Health Beds re-instated

Just like the MRI Machine and Traffic Lights at the Corner of Penola/Wireless Rd, this has been talked about since I was at school. At this election we can make it happen.

Make Mount Gambier the regional hub for state and interstate sporting championships and competitions by upgrading our sporting facilities.

An urgent priority for our community. The provision of mental health beds is essential and should not be compromised.

Together, we have achieved... $2 million Renal Dialysis Upgrade

I am ready and willing to fight for our community and not afraid to ruffle a few feathers. This election is tipped to be the most unpredictable in living memory.

AT A GLANCE

BOOK PROGRAM CONTINUES TO THRIVE One of the most successful early literacy initiatives in the world, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library has dedicated its 100 Millionth Book to the US Library of Congress. The renowned musician founded the program in 1995 with the aim of bringing free, quality books to children aged 0 – 5 in her home state of Tennessee. The Imagination Library has since expanded to Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, now delivering more than 1 million books a month to families worldwide. In Australia, almost 200,000 books have been delivered since the program was launched by United Way in 2013 and

in the Glenelg Shire, more than 23,000 books have been delivered to children, thanks to the partnership of United Way Glenelg and Portland Aluminium. Nicole Angelino, Executive Officer United Way Glenelg said for hundreds of children in families facing financial hardship and social disadvantage, these books provide a critical opportunity to overcome the odds and build the early literacy and numeracy skills needed to thrive in school and beyond. To help us bring more new books into the hands of children living in the Glenelg Shire from birth, you can make a donation by contacting Nicole Angelino on 0410 513 305 mail@unitedwayglenelg.com.au

CAR DEALERSHIP GETTING BEHIND 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF WORLD’S GREATEST SHAVE Mount Gambier’s OG Roberts & Co will join more than 20,000 Aussies this year as the Leukaemia Foundation celebrates the 20th birthday of the iconic World’s Greatest Shave campaign. OGR staff will soon be part of the more than 1.9 million extraordinary Aussies of all ages who have helped beat blood cancer over the past two decades by getting sponsored to shave, colour, wax, cut pony tails, banish beards and trim top knots. Leukaemia Foundation CEO Bill Petch is encouraging anyone who has been thinking about shaving for some time to make 2018 their year to sign up. “Whether you have a personal connection to blood cancer or simply want to have fun and raise money for a good cause, we’re asking Australians to join the World’s Greatest Shave for our big 20th anniversary,” said Mr Petch. OGR’s shave team consists of Eboni

LOCAL DOCUMENTARY HITS LOCAL SCREENS AGAIN It premiered at the Oatmill Cinema earlier this year but if you missed a chance to see this thought provoking, locally produced documentary, instigated and funded by local farmer David Smith, and created with the help of cameraman Robert Tremelling, Pipe Dreams Fractured Lives is showing at Mount Gambier’s Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre on Thursday, March 13. The film centres on fracking and shows the impact on lives in both Queensland and the USA.

Smith, Joanne Gillespie, Simon Phillips, Daryl Watson, Paul Ferguson and Bryce Roberts. “For me, participating in The World’s Greatest Shave is a way to pay tribute to the friends and family I’ve lost to this awful disease, whilst raising funds to support those who are going through the toughest times of their lives,” dealier principal Bryce Roberts said. “I am immensely proud to have five of our team members joining me in The World’s Greatest Shave, together we aim to raise $5000 for blood cancer.” Money raised will give families facing blood cancer including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma the free emotional and practical support they need as well as help fund vital research. For the first time, the World’s Greatest Shave is ‘going green’ this year, thanks to a partnership with Sustainable Salons Australia. This means ponytails snipped from those taking part in the event will now be turned into wigs for cancer patients, shorter hair clippings will be transformed into compost and floating booms to absorb oil spills at sea and empty cans of coloured hairspray will be diverted away from landfill back into recycled resources.

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - LET’S STRIP THIS BACK TO BASICS... By ROBBIE TANSEL So last week I wrote a lovely article about how the Chinese government are trying to outlaw strippers at funerals. I won’t lie. I was pretty proud of myself. I thought it was pretty witty. Granted, the Chinese government had helped me out quite a bit by coming up with such a ridiculous idea. Who is going to go to a funeral at all without a stripper? What’s the attraction? Without a stripper all you’re left with is your grief and memories of your time with the person. I was very much looking forward to seeing a lovely picture of a stripper next to my article. I thought it would capture people’s attention, leading to more people sharing in my wit. It certainly wasn’t because I wanted to see a photo of a stripper. You’ll just have to imagine my disappointment when the picture was of a transsexual. I don’t really have anything against transsexuals, but I’d just prefer to see a picture of an attractive woman…I mean I didn’t think it would capture people’s attention as well. It made me feel like I was Daffy Duck in that cartoon where the illustrator keeps on erasing his body and drawing

him into weird scenarios to annoy him. Having said that, I was more disappointed that the Lifestyle1 graphic designers had removed my paragraphs. I understand that sometimes the good folks at Lifestyle1 are tight for space in these pages, but it always worries me that people reading for the first time will think that I’m ignorant and don’t know how to use paragraphs and won’t take the time to read again. I may be ignorant, but I know how to use paragraphs. As if I wasn’t disappointed enough with these two issues, I have a Chinese friend and I didn’t get any reaction from him defending China and pointing out how much of an imbecile I am. I was really hoping he might take the bait and react to what I’d said. I didn’t want to offend him in anyway, because I love China and the Chinese people, but I thought I might get a reaction from him of some kind. I really don’t see why the Chinese government would be thinking there was a problem with strippers at funerals. It’s not like the person in the box is going to be offended. They’ve got bigger problems. I think one person who would particularly like having a stripper at the funeral would be the person delivering the eulogy. Studies have found that more people are afraid of public speaking than of dying. So at a funeral, the average person would rather be in the box than doing the eulogy. But imagine if there was an exotic dancer accompanying the eulogy. Suddenly the person doing the speaking knows that no one is paying them very much attention. The pressure’s off. If anything, I think the Chinese government should be looking for more occasions where strippers would lifestyle1.net | 22

be appropriate. For example, while drilling the military. Tupperware parties. Golf tournaments. Home and Away. Supermarkets. Nangwarry. Eightieth birthday parties (as long as it’s not the guest of honour stripping.) Polling booths on election day. Colonoscopies. While watching, “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here” or any show with Doctor Chris Brown. When firing someone, or indeed, when being fired. Every one of those situations would be improved with strippers. ell me if you think I’m wrong. I didn’t think so. Apart from adding to the occasion I think it would improve the perception of strippers. Suddenly they wouldn’t only be seen in seedy clubs charging exorbitant drink prices (so I’ve heard). If we were seeing them bringing joy to our lives on a daily basis, it would be good PR for them. They’d be held in the same sort of regard as politicians, lawyers, parking inspectors and mass murderers. If you think I should keep writing articles about strippers until I get a picture I like, email me at robbietansel@gmail.com


CHILDREN’S CENTRE LEADING THE WAY IN INNOVATIVE EDUCATION It takes a village to raise a child. It is an African proverb often quoted but it is that sense of community that has seen the Mount Gambier Children’s Centre awarded the highest quality level rating in education and care. Announced in January and officially handed out late last month, the Mount Gambier Children’s Centre for Early Childhood Development and Parenting has been awarded an Excellent rating by Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) as part of the National Quality Framework. It is the thoughts of leading Canadian researcher, who was once a Thinker in Residence in Adelaide, Dr Fraser Mustard, that has formed the foundation for what looms as unparalleled excellence in education and care. “Starting early and making connections between families, services and communities makes good sense for every child,” Dr Mustard said, back in 2007. “Positive and nourishing early experiences help children to make the most of the potential that they are born with... A child’s wellbeing is highly dependent on the strengths and resilience present in their families and communities, so it is vital that all communities can see their place in working together to support children’s development across South Australia.” And it is that kind of thinking that has underpinned the Mount Gambier Children’s Centre since opening its doors at the Mulga Street site in 2010. “Our journey is a story of Re-imagining

Community, as we re-imagine how we can work collectively as a community to listen and respond to children and families,” centre director Pauline Bosco said. “It is a story about acknowledging strengths and capabilities, of building strong partnerships and responsive action as we listen, reflect, learn and work together to build a brighter future for children, families and ultimately our community.” Those founding principles have now been extended to the formation of a Hub at Melaleuca Park Primary School, ensuring that the children’s centre was able to be more inclusive and responsive in supporting all families across the city. The ‘hub and spoke’ approach has also enabled broader participation from a variety of agencies. This has resulted in the delivery of more targeted child development and parenting programs. “Our work is also inspired by Professor Carla Rinaldi, South Australia’s second early childhood specific Thinker in Residence, 2012-13,” Ms Bosco said. “Professor Rinaldi’s work built on the previous residency and inspired us to Re-imagine Childhood and to view children as capable and contributing citizens from birth. In our work we actively listen to the voices of children and provide opportunities for children to contribute and connect within the community such as working with the City Council in the development of the John Powell Reserve naturescape.” The involvement of the parents is paramount to the Mount Gambier

Children’s Centre programs. “Our underpinning belief is that strong and capable parents provide the best opportunity for children to develop and grow as healthy and active citizens,” Ms Bosco said. That has seen the establishment of two programs, unique to the Mount Gambier centre and developed primarily by Fiona Pulford and Kelly Williams – the Patchwork Program that aims to strengthen parenting and facilitate reunification of children in care, and the I Am Woman Program, designed to help, challenge and encourage women to build self confidence and self esteem. Both the Patchwork and I am Woman programs have been recognised by the Department for Education and Child Development and Department for Child Protection as being a valuable resource for the families. Then there is the ‘50 things to do before you turn 13’ project - a 2013 initiative that was updated again in 2017. The list of no and low cost activities, which is now called the ‘50+ things to do before you turn 13’ was a collaborative project, taking in the thoughts of grandparents, parents and

RARE COLLECTION ON SHOW AT HAMILTON GALLERY Described by bryologist Dr George Scott as, “The greatest botanical artist in the world today, and probably the greatest there has ever been”, Celia Rosser has with The Banksias produced the first ever pictorial survey of an entire genus of this magnitude. These original watercolour paintings for the three large volumes of The Banksias, Rosser’s magnum opus, took over 25 years of meticulous artistry to complete. These three volumes have only been displayed together once previously, in 2001 at the National Library of Australia, so this is a rare and remarkable opportunity to view Rosser’s oeuvre in its entirety and that opportunity is now right on our doorstep at the Hamilton Gallery. The exhibition opens on March 15 and runs until May 20. Contemporary botanical artist John Pastoriza-Piñol will be the guest speaker at the exhibition opening on March 15. lifestyle1.net | 23

students from across childcare centres, kindergartens and classrooms to compile the list, which is also available in printed form and was spawned a short video. The Play on Wheels trailer, also made possible by grant funding from One Forty One Plantations and the Stand Like Stone Foundation, has been another key program, taking play to the streets as they encourage parents to play alongside their young children knowing that participation from an adult in children’s play can enhance developmental outcomes. The Mount Gambier Children’s Centre has secured the excellent rating until 2020. “As a community we all have an important responsibility in raising children and building success for a strong future and strong community,” Ms Bosco said. “We would like to acknowledge that working together with the wider Mount Gambier community as well as a diverse range

of services available in our region has enabled our team to gain knowledge that is supporting our work to give the best outcomes to children and their families. We wish to acknowledge the support of families and community including Mount Gambier City Council and support agencies as we work collectively to make a positive difference.” Left - Owen Trumper, from One Forty One Plantations, and Mount Gambier Children’s Centre’s Fiona Pulford in front of Play on Wheels.

REPEAT BUSINESS KEEPS BANQUET AT TOP OF THEIR GAME Despite the softening of the cattle market in recent weeks, the Branson family, Banquet Angus, Mortlake, had every reason to smile at the completion of their 19th annual bull sale late last month. They sold 82 of 90 bulls offered, and against the recent bull sale trends, they actually increased their average by $51 on last year’s record breaking result, averaging $9220 and topping at $35,000. This result matched the outstanding quality of the draft, from the sale topper as the first bull offered, right through to the last bull catalogued, which was one of 30 bulls to reach $10,000 or better. The bidding action was very strong at the beginning of the catalogue in particular, with the first 14 bulls, and 20 of the first 30 all exceeding $10,000. There were 89 registered bidders from four states actively competing, with 54 making it onto the buyers’ list. However, there was still plenty of value on offer with 43% selling in the very affordable $5000 to $7000 range. Twenty nine of the buyers were recipients of this great value, enabling them to go home with extreme value, or to average out their buying. As an example, the James family, AJ Farms, Casterto,n who have been loyal Banquet clients since their foundation went to $16,000 for their top purchase but were able to add two others at just $7000 each to bring their buying average down significantly. They were one of six buyers who were the equal

highest volume purchasers with three bulls each. With this bull sale result, combined with the pre-sale offering of 150 Banquet blood PTIC commercial heifers on behalf of Robbie and Marg Patterson, Drysdale Partnership, Mortlake, the day’s gross again ticked over the $1 million mark. The star of the sale was undoubtedly the first bull offered and ultimately the $35,000 top priced bull, the 22 month old and 845kg Banquet Mirrool M078. Sired by Banquet Holden H591, the full brother to the legendary B. Ballis B017, Mirrool visually demonstrated great muscularity, excellent length and width across his top line, plus had a great sire’s head and outlook.

Supporting that was an exceptional set of balanced Breedplan figures topping at +121 for 600 day weight. The outstanding genetic package this bull offered attracted several strong bidders, but it was Robert Love, Jumbuck Pastoral, Violet Town, Vic who won the day with his $35,000 bid. Robert inspected the bulls the week before the sale with his Elders Euroa agent Joe Kelly, and then bid via phone connection with Elders Mortlake’s Matt Jones. This is the third top bull Robert has purchased from Banquet for his highly respected commercial herd, having topped the heifer section of the recent January Euroa weaner sale. It was another top commercial

Angus herd in Webb Pastoral, Glenburn that was the underbidder, seeking top genetics for their commercial Angus program. Manager Duncan Newcomen was buoyed by the success of their recent Yea weaner sale result where they topped both the heifer and steer sections. They purchased a bull last year at $13,000, plus the top Banquet blood heifers offered by the Pattersons, so are familiar with the Banquet quality and performance. While missing this top lot they then went on to purchase two top bulls at $16,000 and $13,000. Landmark auctioneer Kevin Norris, in his introductory comments described the Banquet bulls as an outstanding

draft with exceptional phenotype, bone, length, fleshing, silky smooth skins and great temperament. “Everything we have come to expect from this program,” he said. In summing up the sale, senior principal Stephen Branson, said the top end was exceptionally strong and there was a very good return of repeat buyers plus some exciting new ones. “Return clients are the centrepiece of our business and the buying strength of the clients who bred the heifers offered pre-sale in particular was exceptionally strong,” he said. “As a vendor, it was very encouraging that such discerning buyers were prepared to buy the best genetics they could to continue to improve their herds.” Those 150 heifers sold pre-sale by Jack Hickey and offered by Robbie and Marg Patterson, Drysdale Partnership met very solid demand, but not to the same premium levels of last year. They all sold to a $2275 top and averaged $2120.

REUSE MARKET CLOSING IN ON OPENING DATE Construction has begun at the Mount Gambier ReUse Market site located at 3 and 5 Eucalypt Drive, the former salvage yard site next to the Waste Transfer Station, with the $560,000 facility on track to be operational by October. “The $150,000 shed is 15 metres by 30 metres and the undercover loading area is 30 metres by 11 metres,” City of Mount Gambier Manager Engineering Design and Contracts Daryl Morgan (pictured) said. When complete, signage will direct people into the appropriate lane within the undercover loading area to drop off any material that can be sorted and stored for reuse or resale or to be recycled. City of Mount Gambier Environmental Sustainability Officer Aaron Izzard said the initiative plays an important role in meeting Council’s sustainability goals and work with the community to reduce unnecessary waste going to landfill. “Donating items to the ReUse Market through the Waste Transfer Station will reduce waste to landfill and support local jobs,” Mr Izzard said. The Waste Transfer Station will start receiving items for the ReUse Market in April 2018. lifestyle1.net | 24

NEW PHENOMENON TAKING OFF Disc Golf continues to gain popularity throughout the region, as Mount Gambier now boasts 18 permanent baskets at the professionally designed course at Browne’s Lake, which is free for community use. Disc Golf is a flying disc sport where players throw a disc at a metal basket and is played using rules similar to golf, to play each hole in the minimal amount of shots. The Mount Gambier Disc Golf Club had been using portable baskets before the City of Mount Gambier supported the permanent establishment of the course with a $22,000 boost from its 2017/18 budget. “The funds helped us to acquire the services of Disc Golf Park Australia’s Andrew Ferguson who supplied the baskets and signage and came down to Mount Gambier for five days to design the course in October last year. Since that stage, the baskets have been installed and signage will be installed soon,” Mount Gambier Disc Golf Club president Ryan Nicholson (pictured above with member Nicole McPherson) said. The picturesque course at Browne’s Lake in the Valley Lake precinct, features 18 advanced holes, with nine beginner

options and a total of 27 tees. “The location is absolutely perfect for the sport, we’re very lucky. There aren’t many 18 basket courses in Australia, there’s only a handful, so our course has got the greater disc golf competitors buzzing that it can be used for top level sanctioned events,” Mr Nicholson said. The club hopes to continue to attract sanctioned Australian Disc Golf (ADG) and Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) events this year. “We will be hosting the SA Open on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 May, which has the potential to attract about 50 seasoned disc golf players,” Mr Nicholson said. The club also hosts monthly league days for members and those who are interested in learning more about the emerging sport. “We’ve noticed the numbers have increased at the last couple of league days, with people keen to use the new baskets,” he said. “We normally have about 15 regulars, but with new people coming along to try, we’ve had up to 20 people competing.” The Club Championship will be held on Sunday, March 18, and the next league day will be held in April. The public is encouraged to attend and ask questions. Follow the Mount Gambier Disc Golf Club on Facebook @MountGambierDiscGolf “Besides league days, people should know that the course is free to use at any time,” Mr Nicholson said. “You can use cheap frisbees from Kmart, or get in contact with the club or go online to purchase the discs.”

DATES SET FOR PORTLAND TUNAFEST The countdown is on for Portland’s favourite fishing competition the month long Hooked on Tuna extravaganza. Dates for the 2018 competition have been confirmed, with this year’s festival to be held over five weekends opening Saturday, March 31, and continuing each weekend until Sunday, April 29. Glenelg Shire Council Mayor Cr Anita Rank said following the success of the Australia Day weekend Hooked on Portland fishing competition, which attracted more than 180 anglers, the month long Hooked on Tuna competition was expected to be huge. She said competitors were expected from across Victoria and south east of South Australia. “The Hooked on Tuna comp always plenty of visitors to town, providing significant economic benefit to the local economy,” Cr Rank said. “With the competition beginning Easter weekend, it creates a great atmosphere in town with cafes, restaurants and accommodation usually booked out by keen fishermen and their families who like to return throughout the month, hunting down and elusive 100kg catch.” Cr Rank said last year’s competition was claimed by local fishermen Hugh

Johnstone with a 59.6kg haul, earning him a $3000 prize cheque. “Johnston’s haul was a particularly notable win, with the Portland resident only 15-years-old at the time, making him one of the youngest competitors in the event’s history and also the competition’s youngest ever winner,” she said. Hugh said last year’s competition was well organised and he urged everyone to ‘give it a go’ stating, “if a 15 year old can win than anyone can”. This year’s entrants will again be vying for more than $12,000 in prize lifestyle1.net | 28

money, with weigh-ins each Saturday and Sunday afternoon coordinated by the Portland Sport Fishing Club with support from the Portland Lions Club and Portland Coast Guard. Above - 2017 Hooked on Tuna winners, second runner-up Anthony Jones, competition winner Hugh Johnstone and second runner-up Andrew Watts with event organisers Michael Hunter and Michael Goldby.

The Portland Visitor Information Centre has launched the ‘Name that Whale’ competition via the Whalemail Facebook page, inviting residents during the month of March to pull out all creative stops to name a new whale for the region. Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said entrants would be competing not only for naming rights, but also for a grand prize. “The winner of the selected entry will receive one night’s accommodation in the Corner Spa Unit at the Macs Hotel in Portland, valued at more than $220,” she said.

SPORT AT A GLANCE TIGERS CONSOLIDATE TOP SPOT In the penultimate minor round games Central were playing for pride and Federal were looking to go into the finals series on Saturday week with a confidence boosting win after loosing their last two games. Pride won out. Central batted first and scored their opening runs after consecutive single base hits from Dylan Chuck, Mark Kilpatrick and Dylan Scheidl with Chuck crossing the plate on Scheidl’s hit. Kilpatrick scored their second run after an error while Scheidl was attempting to steal second base. Federal hit back in the even fourth. Nathan Taylor picked up his first of three hits for the night and scored on Shane Howard’s hit into an error from Scheidl playing at short stop. Howard ultimately scored on his son Jack’s single to rightfield tying the game up at two all. In the top of the fifth, Kyall McClean singled to centrefiel and scored on Chuck’s double, also to centrefield. Chuck then scored on Scheidl’s sacrifice fly before the inning was shut down. Central were in front four runs to two. A change of pitcher for Federal saw Wade Chant on the mound and some team play resulted in the first two Magpie batters returned to the dugout. Kilpatrick singled into leftfield and eventually scored when a wild throw from first baseman Clay Carpenter went awry. Into the bottom of the ninth and Federal were chasing four runs to win. Thomas Winkley struckout, a single to Josh Wilsmore, a double to Alex Reppin found them both crossing the plate from Taylor’s third hit of the game. He unfortunately was put out at second from a relay throw from leftfield through the pitcher. Dylan Chuck closed out the game for Central when he struck out Wade Chant, leaving Central with a one run advantage for the well deserved win. In the second game it was a case of a good game is a quick game as it was all over in just a tad over two hours. South Indians outhit Tigers seven hits to three but Tigers won the contest. Tigers scored their first run in the top of the third dig. With two out, Alex Harkness hit a long double into centrefield and scored on Brayden Morton’s double to rightfield. In the fifth two more runs were added to Tigers score. Both Steven Frost and Joe Sims walked with the former scoring on and infield single to second base from Morton and the latter scoring on a wild throw to the plate from Ryan Placucci. The Indians scored their only run in the bottom of the fifth when lead off batter Placucci hit into an error by third baseman Branden Telford and eventually scored on Bruce Morale’s single. The score at the end of nine inning being three runs to one in Tigers favour. Although South picked up seven safehits they could not string them together to produce a much better scoreline whereas Tigers made much better use of the bats forcing runners around the bases. With one round to go, Tigers have consolidated top spot despite South

holding that position for the majority of the year. Head to head Tigers have had the wood on the Indians all season winning four of their six clashes against each other. It surely augers for an interesting final series in a couple of weeks’ time.
