COVER - BAKER’S DELIGHT HAVE BEEN CREATING EASTER TRADITIONS FOR OVER 35 YEARS Do you know why Bakers Delight Hot Cross Buns are the most delightful buns around? It’s because they are baked fresh each day, which makes them delicious either simply fresh, or toasted and slathered in butter. They are soft to touch, full of flavour and are made with real passion. There’s a reason Bakers Delight Hot Cross Buns remain a favourite treat for Australian families. This Easter, Bakers Delight have brought back your favourite Apple & Cinnamon Hot Cross Bun! The Apple & Cinnamon Hot Cross Bun is made

with real fresh Pink Lady apples which is what makes all the difference. Whilst the Traditional and Choc Chip Hot Cross Buns are crowd favourites, the high demand to bring back the Apple & Cinnamon Hot Cross Bun shows that this flavour is very popular amongst Hot Cross Bun lovers. Bakers Delight Mt Gambier franchisees, Andrew and Mark, are both active supporters of the local community. Between the two franchisees, they support several primary and secondary schools with product donations for breakfast clubs

and fundraisers. They also provide leftover product to regional Food Bank centres. “We love to support our local community as every little bit helps,” Andrew Toogood, franchisee at Bakers Delight Mt Gambier Commercial Street East, said. “We bake Easter traditions fresh every day!” To make your Easter easy this year, both the Mount Gambier bakeries will be open from 5am over the Easter long weekend. Also, for all those coffee lovers, Mocha Hot Cross Buns will be available on Easter Thursday.

Whatever you are doing this Easter long weekend, be it with family and friends or a relaxing picnic down by the lakes - be assured that Bakers Delight is open every day baking an array of fresh goodies, so hop on in and make this Easter memorable!

COMMUNITY GIVES RINGING ENDORSEMENT TO SITTING MEMBER “When you’re the candidate, you’ve got nothing to lose but when you’re the sitting member, you’ve got everything to lose.” That was the reflection of Troy Bell, as he enters his second term as the Member for Mount Gambier. “It’s definitely a different family when it is re-election, rather than when I first got in four years ago,” Mr Bell said. “When I knew I had won my first feeling was joy and relief was the second one.” And newly elected Independent Member for Mount Gambier Troy Bell will be just that – for four more years. The former Liberal member, who resigned from the party when hit with fraud charges, has vowed to remain an independent and has already had preliminary discussions with the new premier, Steven Marshall, about how their relationship is set to work. “If it’s good legislation he can count on my vote in parliament,” Mr Bell said. “Steven (Marshall) rang me on Sunday morning (March 18) to congratulate me and we will catch up more formally in the next three weeks to discuss policies that I’ve developed for the South East.” Aside from the issues he has been highlighting and fighting for in the past four years, Mr Bell has some new issues on his hit list, including the bid for the Qantas Pilot Training School and securing the future of Kimberly-Clark in the region. “Within the first 100 days of government I want them in America talking to the board of KCA and talking about what we need to do to secure their future and those jobs for the

future,” Mr Bell said. In the afterglow of victory, the second term MP reflected pensively on the shock fraud allegations that threatened to derail his bid for that second term. “I had no idea the allegations were coming,” he said. “I was probably in a state of shock for this first four or five weeks but it was important I showed my face and kept doing what I’d been doing. I have faith in the justice system and very confident I’ll be proven innocent and I don’t think I’ve done

anything wrong.” While those legal issues remain, Mr Bell is all about continuing to work for his electorate – an electorate that overwhelmingly installed him as the sitting member again. “We put together a very good campaign and all of my policies and projects were locally focussed – the Cross Border Commissioner, a $20million bio-mass plant, the sporting infrastructure fund – all of those focussed on us as an electorate,” Mr Bell said. “I knew we couldn’t have done any

more. That’s how I always do it. If you fail but you gave it your absolute all and there was nothing else you could have done then you’ve got to be happy with yourself.” Mr Bell is grateful for the support from the community and the opportunity to continue to work in the halls of power for the benefit of Mount Gambier. “I fully appreciate that some people do have questions but I thank people for their support and their vote,” he said. All the peripheral issues aside, Mr Bell has a new appreciation for campaigning while a sitting member. “Until you walk a mile in someone else’s shoes, you don’t realise,” he said. “I now appreciate how difficult it is to campaign when you’re the sitting member but you still have lots of people coming through the door needing support and help. When you’re just the candidate you can campaign 100 of the time, all day every day. When you’re the sitting member, it is all out of hours and it is hard work. I now understand what Don (Pegler) went through. I always have and still do have a lot of time for him.” Cooperation is the buzz word for Mr Bell going forward, especially with the independent member looking to secure some big ticket projects for the region. “One of the challenges going forward is making sure that all the bodies in this region are pushing in the right direction and the same direction,” he said, referring to the local councils,

Regional Development Australia (Limestone Coast) and his own work with the State Government. “We have to focus on all pushing in the same direction with the same vision. That’s when we’ll see the greatest rewards for our community. We’ve already proven that with the Wireless Road-Penola Road traffic lights, the MRI, the Glenburnie race track. When we all focus in the same direction we can achieve really good things for our community. I think the next four years will see some exciting developments in this electorate.” In next week’s issue of Lifestyle1 we will have a chat with first term MP Nick McBride (pictured below), who won the seat of MacKillop.

LIONS SUPPORT LOCAL EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION CENTRE The lives of Glenelg Shire’s youngest residents have been improved thanks to the generosity of a local community organisation. The Casterton Lions Club has gifted $500 to integrated early learning facility Kathleen Millikan Centre (KMC) to provide assistance for further resources and play equipment. KMC Senior Educator Toni Jackson said the support from the community group was overwhelming. “As a result of their generous donation the centre was able to purchase a mud kitchen and picnic table for the children, both of which have been extremely well utilised,” Ms Jackson said. “The mud kitchen in particular has been a resounding hit, with many hours of messy play spent making mud pies and mud cakes in our outdoor area. As a centre we are incredibly lucky to have the support from local organisations such as the Casterton Lions Club.” Above - Casterton Lions Club members with KMC Senior Educator Toni Jackson (left) and children Henry, Nicola and Penny. lifestyle1.net | 04

A NEW DAWN FOR HEALTH IN MOUNT GAMBIER Do you know what the Mount Gambier & Districts Health Advisory Council (HAC) does? Chances are

you don’t. But council member and passionate local health advocate Maureen Klintberg is leading the

charge to change all that. “We really want to bridge the gap between the community and the hospital,” Mrs Klintberg said, as she promotes an April 5 Community Health Forum that is but one of the tools the council is set to use to encourage the local community to become hands on in its relationship with local health services and to have their say on what this region needs. “One of the main roles of the HAC is to engage with the community and to build up the links with the community,” Mrs Klintberg said. The HAC has a very low profile and raising that profile is not about the individuals on the council but because the HAC is essential as the conduit between the community and local health services to ensure everyone is on the same page and the relationship is cooperative. “People don’t know what we do – that’s the problem,” Mrs Klintberg said. “We need to build our profile so we can promote the health service and all the positive services and providers we have at the hospital. And we need the community to know who we are so they can communicate with us just what they want to see from their health service and how they can be involved in improving and developing what goes on in this region.”

Next week’s Community Health Forum is the first step in changing the relationship between the HAC and the community, and in turn the hospital, with a number of keynote speakers set to unveil the region’s health services at Mount Gambier’s City Hall (Cave Gardens entrance) from 6.30pm. The forum will promote the services of the Mount Gambier & Districts Health Service, the role and future plans of the HAC and promoting kidney health awareness. It will also see the launch of the South East Kidney Support Group – an example of the HAC at work –

TEMPT THE TASTEBUDS

Turkey san choy bau 2 teaspoons sesame oil 500g lean turkey mince 2 garlic cloves, crushed 100g fresh shiitake mushrooms, sliced 1 small red capsicum, deseeded, thinly sliced

2 1/2 tablespoons Oyster Sauce 1 tablespoon lemongrass paste 227g can sliced water chestnuts, drained 2 green shallots, chopped 1/2 cup roughly chopped fresh coriander leaves, plus extra, to serve Butter lettuce leaves, to serve

Method Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the turkey mince. Cook, breaking up any lumps with a wooden spoon, for 3-4 minutes, until lightly browned. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the mushroom and capsicum and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until just softened. Add the oyster sauce and lemongrass paste and stir to combine. Add the water chestnuts and shallot and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir through the coriander. Spoon the mixture into lettuce leaves. Sprinkle with extra coriander.

they have helped set up the group, in conjunction with Professor Toby Coates, the region’s visiting nephrologist. There are around 200 kidney patients in this region. The HAC is also the mouthpiece for this community when it comes to advocating for health services in the halls of power with the State Health Minister. “And that’s why we need to know what the community is thinking and what they want,” Mrs Klintberg said. Fundraising is also a key role of the HAC and that is one area the group is committed to ramping up. “We, as a HAC, and as a community need to fundraise for infrastructure and equipment and we have to be actively fundraising or encouraging donations,” she said. And the HAC’s latest project will be unveiled at the April 5 meeting. The renal unit upgrade will also be in the spotlight at the forum. With the change of government, Mrs Klintberg realises it will take some time to see how the dust settles in health in this State but Liberal Party policy and discussions with now Health Minister Stephen Wade has Mrs Klintberg optimistic that regional health could be in for a much needed boost. The proposed reinstating of regional boards will not impact on the work of the HAC, according to Mrs Klintberg, which is why operation profile boost is being fast tracked. It will also mean the Mount Gambier HAC can get the community message to the newly elected government as quickly as possible. “We don’t have the details on how the boards will be structured and the powers they will have but the HAC will continue to have an important role,” she said. One area where the HAC will be looking to engage the community is in the area of volunteering and that will be a key focus at next Thursday’s forum. “There’s a need for more volunteers in a variety of roles that support the health service and so we can provide an excellent service,” Mrs Klintberg said. “They are highly valued, in particular, by the staff.” The HAC intends community forums to become a regular fixture on the calendar.

AT A GLANCE SAVE THE DATE The Yakka Park Music Festival turns five this year when the wide array of performers hit the stage from April 13-15 at Lucindale’s Yakka Park. A project of the Lucindale Lions Club, the festival icks off Friday night from 7pm with a talent search emphasis, has a full Saturday program and then takes a gospel music focus on Sunday.

2 tablespoons unsalted butter. 1 clove garlic, minced. 4 slices sourdough bread. 30 g grated Cheddar cheese. 30 g grated mozzarella cheese.

Method Add oil to a medium skillet pan over a medium-high heat. Add in the broccolini and kale for cook for a further 4 minutes, or until you can pierce the broccolini with a fork.

CHARITY BALL REVIVED Portland’s annual charity ball will be revived in 2018. Portland District Health (PDH) staff and a community committee are planning to bring the popular event back later in the year, with a new organising committee being formed. The last charity ball organised by PDH was held in 2011. PDH recently took to social media to gauge interest in reviving the event and the response was overwhelmingly positive. An organising committee including PDH staff and community volunteers has been set up and will hold its first meeting later this month. “We’re in the early planning stages but we hope it will be big event that brings the community together,” Ms Stoneman said. No date has been set at this stage but it’s likely to be later in the year, possibly October. PDH is happy to accept any further interested committee members or if you would like to be a major sponsor of the event please contact Adele Curran on (03)5521 0351 or Rachel Stoneman on (03) 5521 0313.

JAM PACKED YOUTH WEEK PROGRAM FOR WATTLE RANGE SA Youth Week in Wattle Range aims to showcase the diversity of activities available in our region. Feedback received from young people, both directly and through council’s last youth survey, revealed a broad range of interests, shaping an exciting program of events. This year’s theme ‘Your Future, Your Way’ will highlight young people’s roles in shaping their lives, helping shape the direction for the State. Held during the first week of the school holidays, from Friday, April 13, through to Sunday, April 22, Youth Week will include a wide range of practical, interesting and fun activities across the region, catering to most youth aged 12-25. Fishing, skate demonstrations, cooking classes, design & technology, movies, an escape room and a surf lifesaving event have all been scheduled, along with more practical sessions on how to develop and write an effective CV, learning how to budget and relaxation techniques. Also included in the program will be the presentation of the third annual Youth Recognition Awards in Millicent. “The presentation evening will be one of the highlights for the week and will be held at the Millicent Community Club in conjunction with the Millicent Lions’ Club,” Wattle Range CEO Ben Gower said. “The awards continue to be generously supported by Glen Carron Transport, the Medical Clinic Millicent, Kimberly Clark Australia and Council. We will also be working together with a number of other organisations, including Uniting Communities, Noorla Yo-Long, Career Development Centre, HYPA (Helping Young People Achieve), Beachport Surf Life Saving Club, Lions Club and more, to successfully deliver the range of events and activities over the week. The youth of our region are of great value to our community and 2018’s Youth Week will be about empowering them to become the best version of themselves.” Council was successful in an application to the SA Government’s Office for Youth, Department for Communities and Social Inclusion for funding assistance to conduct its 2018 SA Youth Week activities. The Council was awarded the maximum allowable grant of $3000 but also commits financially and with significant staff time planning the program. Youth interested in participating in any of Council’s SA Youth Week activities are encouraged to check out our program of events at www. wattlerange.sa.gov.au/youthweek or like us on Facebook. Further information is available from any of council’s offices or by phoning Community Development Officer, Sarah Marzec (08)8733 0900.

THE BALL IS IN OUR COURT The ball is in our court. That was the message from last week’s community meeting regarding the development of an indoor aquatic and recreation centre in Mount Gambier. Now it’s up to the community to decide if they want that court, and, of course, a pool, indoors, or if they want to remain with the status quo. Discussions on an indoor facility date back to 1983. That was when council commissioned its first report into the project, with another coming in 1995 and the most recent in 2006/07. Mount Gambier City Council CEO Mark McShane told the 300 attendees to last Wednesday’s meeting that the most recent report had stood the test of time but would need tweaking to be brought up to date with council, also last week, allocating $30,000 for that revamping of the report. There were also 400 apologies for the last week’s meeting, which saw key figures from all three tiers of government have their say, as well as representatives from the current Olympic Park complex. The meeting overwhelmingly voted to pursue the project and set up a community steering committee to work in tandem with an already established council committee to work towards a funding proposal that has to be submitted to the Federal Government by the end of April. It is a short timeline and that initial expression of interest – which is phase one of being in line for a

piece of the newly announced Regional Growth Fund – a $272million dollar pool targeting projects worth in excess of $10million. Member for Barker Tony Pasin was on council in 2004 when considered it back then and it was an eight million dollar project – rough estimates now price the ambitious project at $25million. “It’s a great privilege to be the Member for Barker and I can’t think of a better project than this one,” Mr Pasin said. The key, though, is overwhelming community support – without that, Tony Pasin, Member for Mount Gambier Troy Bell and Mount Gambier Mayor Andrew Lee will struggle to sell the case for funding and without dollars from all three tiers of government – and the ratepayers – the project is still nothing but a pipedream. “I have to convince my colleagues in Canberra that this has widespread support and I’m sure Troy is the same and the mayor,” Mr Pasin said. “For the first time in a long time we have a Liberal government at State and Federal level and we need to maximise every opportunity through that,” Mr Bell said. “There is going to be challenges ahead of us, otherwise this would have been done a long, long time ago – we can overcome those challenges but we need to do it together, we need to work together to make it happen.”

Mr Bell identified two funding options at State level – the Regional Development Fund & Royalties for Regions Fund. “We (council) do not have all the answers and figures – this requires input from you (community),” Mr Lee said. “All three levels of government most support this and provide significant funding.” Council has already scouted similar projects in Victoria and South Australia including Portland, Hamilton, Warrnambool. Campbelltown, the Barossa Valley, and a joint council project in the Fleurieu. But now the clock is ticking as the council and community steering groups work together to canvas and generate community support and put together an eye catching expression of interest. If that is successful, the major submission will then need to be put together to successfully negotiate phase two of the application process and securing, what is critical funding. “I will be knocking down every door I know of to get this project up, subject, of course, to this being the wish of the community,” Mr Pasin said. Mount Gambier Aquatic Centre’s Peter Collins urged the community to get behind the proposed project. “This has only failed before because the community has not pressed hard enough,” he said. “If enough people speak up it will happen, we’ll make

these guys (Tony Pasin & Troy Bell) get the money.” While Mount Gambier Netball Association’s Scott Martin drew on the classic movie Field of Dreams to mount his case. “I am going to borrow a line from a 1990s movie – if we build it they will come,” he said. “And they will most definitely come.” Mr McShane ran through the preliminary ideas for the indoor centre, tempering the passionate please from sporting groups with the nuts and bolts (and dollars) of such an undertaking. “It is time for a dose of, what I call, reality therapy,” Mr McShane said. “From stakeholder engagement and design through to gaining grant funding and construction we are looking at three to four years at least – the construction phase alone would be up to two years. But considering the discussion has been going over the past 40 years, four years is not too long to wait. This is not about me or you but what the community can use in the future – your children and grandchildren. This will only be delivered if we have three or four things – comprehensive community backing, successful grants; community and council happy to bear the costs and collaboration is critical.” Anyone wanting to be part of the community steering group should email mgcommunityrecandsportfacility@ gmail.com

DESIGN

WHAT SOME OF THE KEY PLAYERS HAD TO SAY...

• Three or four multi purpose indoor courts • Show court with retractable seats • Indoor aquatic facility – traditionally 25m – 8-10 lanes (heating costs means 50m prohibitive) • Access for people with disabilities • Common purpose area – allied health services/gym • A creche • A kiosk • Offices & administration • Changerooms • 50m outdoor pool remains • Outdoor netball & tennis courts also on site

ANDREW LEE (Mount Gambier Mayor) “…it’s important that stakeholders and all the community have input into this…” “…significant work has already been done over the years but should it progress there is much more work to be done…” TONY PASIN (Member for Barker) “…this is about outcomes that are community driven…” “…we will have more than one shot if we are not lucky enough to get the finding this time – it’s not the only opportunity to source funding…” “...if it’s successful, happy days, and it it’s not successful, we have a shovel ready project and governments are always looking for shovel ready projects…” TROY BELL (Member for Mount Gambier) “…this is great for Mount Gambier, great for our region and great for our community…” “…if we can have a big vision, build each other up and talk positively about this I’m confident we can achieve it…” MARK MCSHANE (Mount Gambier City Council CEO) “…it’s a but like owning your own home. You have to buy it or build it and then you have to run it and it is no different in terms of operating costs for such a facility that we are talking about…”

lifestyle1.net | 22

IDEAS FROM THE FLOOR Will there be water play? Certainly on the radar How can people get involved and show their support? Contact Tony Pasin, Troy Bell or the Mount Gambier City Council or email mgcommunityrecandsportfacility@ gmail.com if you are looking to be part of the community steering committee. How will the proposed Liberal Party rate capping policy affect plans to raise rates to help fund project? There are exemptions within the proposed rate capping policy and if they are prepared to provide State Government funding, the assumption would be they would allow the Mount Gambier City Council their own means to help fund the project by raising rates. Are we going to look at working with neighbouring councils for funding? We want it be a regional facility but those discussions are still some way off. Are we prepared to scout other locations besides Olympic Park? Never say never - although it is hard to think of a better location.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS • Two aspects – capital (cost of construction) & operational (running costs) • Last costing was $12million and that was 12 years ago – now sits easily at $20million-plus (Campbelltown - $26.5million; Barossa - $16.5million; Fleurieu $21million (shared between two councils)) • Cost per annum to run - $1million – could be as high as $1.6million net loss to run such a facility • Rate increases would be the most likely form of funding, outside of the grant etc which are for construction


COLLECTED STUPIDITY - HOPEFULLY THIS IS THE LAST TIME I WRITE ABOUT IT... By ROBBIE TANSEL I’d hate people to think that I’m a one trick pony, but I am going to talk about Chinese strippers again this week. For those of you that have missed the last few weeks of my articles, I am just a little bit obsessed with a recent Chinese government crackdown on strippers at funerals. Crack down seems like an unfortunate phrase to use in combination with Chinese strippers. Anyway I do have a couple of good friends who are Chinese. They doubted the original premise of my article, but having looked into this, one of them tells me, funeral strippers are common in Taiwan, they are not rare in very rural areas of China, and they are pole dancers and definitely would not strip naked. One of my other Chinese friends told me that girls stripping to their bikinis in China is the equivalent of Australian strippers stripping naked, apparently in the level of excitement it causes. I’m happy to accept their facts but I think they’re missing the point. The point of this whole issue is not the level of undress the strippers are progressing to, BUT THE FACT THAT IT’S HAPPENING AT FUNERALS. I think I’ve made it very clear that I think the Chinese government have made a terrible mistake on this one. I think it will cost them votes at the next election…in thirty years time when the president for life is poisoned by one of his political enemies. I want to make it clear that I’d be prepared to accept strippers at any upcoming funerals I’m invited to that only disrobe to their bikinis. That would be fine with me, if you think it’s poor taste to strip naked. I’d be prepared to respect your outdated 1950s attitude. I don’t want to kick a presumably nice, intelligent nice young lady while she’s down, but I wonder if Mount Gambier Labor “candidate” Isabel Scriven might have been better off running as a “candidate” in the election for China’s president for life. I think there was a similar likelihood of being successful. I think the chances are she would have achieved a similar share of the vote. Presumably there are no debates, because everyone has to agree with the president, so you can have crazy policies like banning exotic dancers at funerals, and still win the election in a landslide. That sounds exactly like the sort of election she needs to be part of. The only problem may be that Isabel wanted to run her election campaign through social media because she’s apparently a happening youngster not a middle aged man doing things the way we always do things. Social media isn’t encouraged in China. As much as I think Ms Scriven’s

probably a lovely young lady, I think she also missed the point a bit. Her attitude to the proposed candidate debates clearly showed this when she decided it would be more useful to devote herself to her Facebook page than speak to members of the electorate at a public debate. That’s missing the point, and anyone with half a brain saw it as nothing but hiding from tough questions. I’ve got to say, apart from the lack of respect and lack of courage to talk about your party’s policies, the thing I objected to most was how rude and inconsiderate it sounded like she was. In the stories I read, it indicated that she hadn’t even replied to the invitation to be part of the debate. Please yourself whether you want to debate I guess,

but at least have the decency to politely RSVP and make up some excuse for your absence. Maybe I’m missing the point. Like I said, I don’t want to bash the young lady. Good on her for getting involved in the democratic process. There should be young people and women in parliament. Pretty weak, pathetic end to my article this week. I’m dying to take a zing at her but it just feels in poor taste. I saw Ms Scriven’s election night afterparty at the Western Tavern on Saturday night. It made me feel sorry for her. It looked like a funeral, for a person who wasn’t well liked. It could definitely have done with a nice stripper. That’s right, I’ve written an article featuring Chinese strippers at funerals

lifestyle1.net | 23

for the fourth week in a row, and I’m worried about writing something in poor taste.

ROTARY CONFERENCE HEADS TO MOUNT GAMBIER London bombing survivor Gill Hicks (right) and Scott de Bruin with food industry icon Chong Liew (both far right). Scott will be speaking at the Rotary Conference and then a week later will be teaming with Chong Liew as part of a Tasting Australia event to showcase Wagyu Beef at Mayura Station. It has been 13 years since Mount Gambier hosted the Rotary District 9780 Conference but it is back in the Blue Lake City, after two busy years of planning to put together a program that is not only enticing for Rotarians but also for those in the local community that want to tap into some amazing opportunities. And with around 400 Rotarians and their partners headed to town, the city’s accommodation, café and restaurant and retail sector also look set to benefit. The theme of the 2018 conference is Rotary: Making a Difference, through peace and conflict resolution. The keynote speaker list reads like a who’s who of peace and conflict resolution – the likes of London bombing survivor Gill Hicks and esteemed counter-terrorism expert Professor Greg Barton. Local talent will also be showcased with business leaders Scott de Bruin and Frank DiGiorgio sharing their stories. The Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre will host the main sessions of the contest

with the Friday night and Saturday and Sunday morning sessions all at the Mount Gambier theatre. There is an opportunity for the general public to take advantage of the presenters by attending those sessions. There will also be a strong youth focus with two youth forums being held in conjunction with the three day conference that runs from April 6-8. The youth forum attendees will be exposed to the world class speakers on offer to the Rotarians with resilience and entrepreneurship the two pillars of the forums. Those forums will be held at Tenison Woods College and will be open to all Year 11 & 12 students from the region’s high schools, with the Main Dress Circle at the Main Corner also hosting a Saturday morning youth event focussing on apprentices, athletes, university students and community service organisations. That session will run from 9.3011.30am. Saturday night will see a gala celebration dinner, taking advantage of the talents of James Morrison with this

dinner, at The Barn, also open to the public. Erupt With Jazz is the theme of the night as James Morrison and Friends entertain the Rotarians as The Barn showcases local produce and wine. Exchange students will also address the conference over the weekend, sharing their experiences – both students who have returned from exchanges and students currently based in this region. Organisers are also determined to make this region and its rich history a centrepiece of the conference with a special presentation seeing the likes of Mark MacKillop brought to life by local actors. The Ballad of the Blue Lake Bunyip, including the story of Sam McGregor’s leap, will also be centre stage, with Rotary also looking to unveil a project which will see a seat around the Blue Lake dedicated to the time honoured story. Head to www. rotary9780.org for more details about how you can get involved.

JOIN THE P0WER REVOLUTION Last month, Shinehub, a solar broking company, with the support of the Smart Energy Council, held community meetings in the Limestone Coast in their bid to demystify solar and to replace big energy with community solar – and perhaps the bottom line, ensure cheaper power bills for customers. “We are looking to provide sustainable power and more affordable power,” Shinehub co-founder Alex Georgiou (pictured above) said. And this community embraced the message and the offers like no other in Australia. “We were planning on around 70 orders,” Alex said. “But it has already surpassed 100 orders and if we can hit 110 then every one of those customers gets $100 back.” It means Shinehub has extended the opportunity to get involved until the end of March. “It has been a massive uptake and we have been blown away,” he said. “People came to the information sessions not understanding how solar and battery power works and they said within 45 minutes they totally got it,” Alex said. “We have helped people bridge the knowledge gap and they can now make an informed decision. The message we keep hearing is people want to move away from grid power lifestyle1.net | 26

and be more self sufficient.” In terms of numbers, it means this region has signed up for 1700 panels and 180 batteries and in terms of uptake it has far outweighed the metropolitan response. Shinehub took 175 orders from metropolitan Adelaide from a population base of one million, while from the 60,000 in this region, they expect to hit 110. “It’s by far the biggest uptake we’ve ever seen,” Alex said. Basically what Shinehub is facilitating is the creation of a virtual solar community – they are a software and service company not a solar company – and from there a range of packages are available, from earning money from the power you generate to having all the infrastructure installed for free and then a flat power rate set up going forward. It sees the management of the power and distribution of the power in the hands of the members

of the community – not a big power company. “Our role is to link everyone together,” Alex said. The fixed rate, free access plan is the most innovative option on the table from Shinehub – it is an Australian first. “You sign up and have solar and battery installed for free and then you buy the power only, from that system,” he said. Current solar communities set up by Shinehub are enjoying a 20-30 percent reduction in power bills from what most of us are paying right now and they are sourcing 90 percent of their power from solar and battery. For more information and to beat the March 31 deadline head to www.shinehub.com.au


AT A GLANCE

POPULAR BREAKFAST SET TO BE HEADLINED BY HARRISON CRAIG Often the person most taken for granted within any workplace is the person doing all the administration, yet they are actually the backbone of any organisation. He or she usually has a finger on the pulse and keeps track of all the minute details that make a business run smoothly. And very often their dedication extends outside their workplace into involvement in some way with the community. To celebrate these unsung heroes, United Way Glenelg in conjunction with South West TAFE is calling for nominations for the Administrative Professional of the Year. People from Portland and surrounds are encouraged to nominate the person they think deserves recognition for going above and beyond in their role as an Administrative Professional. This prestigious award will be presented at the annual Administrative Professionals Breakfast and sponsored by South West TAFE. Last Year’s winner was Andrea Bolte from Glenelg Shire Council who was praised by her colleagues as highly professional, empathic and worked well above what was required. Closing date for nominations is Friday, April 20, at 4pm. Nominations must be received on the official South West Tafe Administration of the Year nomination form. The 2018 breakfast, headlined by Harrison Craig, is sold out.

BAYVIEW COLLEGE EMBRACES NEW PILOT PROGRAM Tilley is not a new student at Portland’s Bayview College but a staghound whippet cross eager to be furry friend to all. As a trained therapy dog, Tilley will be used to calm student’s fears, relieve anxiety, and lifts mood by provoking laughter within the classroom environment. Tilley will come to school with her owner Bayview College’s inclusion officer Judy Jenkins throughout the coming weeks during the pilot program. Bayview College principal Dr Michelle Kearney said numerous research studies have been undertaken that show the benefits of animal assisted activity and in particular the contribution of therapy dogs in educational settings. “Evidence has shown that therapy dogs can enhance young people’s psychological development, improve their social skills, and increase their self-esteem,” Dr Kearney said. “We hope Tilley can also help in the development of responsibility, compassion, and respect for other living things.”

COMMUNITY REACHES TARGET FOR MEMORIAL BUS PROJECT It was in the early hours of Easter Sunday 2013 that Port MacDonnell premiership captain Steven Noble lost his life in a road accident – he was 27 and the future he had planned with new bride Courtney would never eventuate. Much loved in the Port MacDonnell and Allendale East community, it was not surprising that the community combined forces to come up with a project that would honour the popular larrikin. A community bus has been the target of fundraising ever since – with the Steven Noble Memorial Fund one of the sub funds administered by the Stand Like Stone Foundation, with the annual Swinging With The Stars Fundraiser, providing the community with a chance to raise significant dollars for the bus. Last year, the seaside district’s entrant was Grant Fensom and the community backed fundraising he was able to achieve has seen the community bus dream come to fruition and the bus and the keys were handed over earlier this month. It will service the communities of Port MacDonnell, Allendale and Kongorong, for the charitable purposes of education,

awareness and accessibility for rural and regional communities. “We are humbled to be able to assist both Courtney and those who have been so passionate about recognising Steven in a meaningful way, to achieve this outcome,” Stand Like Stone Foundation chair Bill DeGaris said. “The small regional communities of Allendale East, Kongorong and Port MacDonnell will benefit from the community bus and will remember Steven as the community-minded man that he was.” The community bus will be housed at the Allendale East Area School and will be available for community use for the charitable purposes as identified. “The community bus will provide access for students & community groups that was otherwise not possible and will enable education and awareness around road safety issues,” Courtney said. “Having the funds to purchase the bus in just five short years, is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all those involved.” The project has also been supported by Noel Barr Toyota and Courtney is now encouraging everyone on the roads to make safe choices in the hope that no family will have to endure the sadness and emptiness that she has experienced. Above - Courtney Fox (in driver’s seat) at the handover of the community bus. Grant Fensom & Katherine Miller show the style that saw them win People’s Choice in Swinging With the Stars - that 2017 fundraising effort fast tracked the Steven Noble Memorial Fund bus project.

SPORT WARRIORS GO BACK TO BACK For the second successive season, Warriors have stormed to the Mount Gambier Softball League title with a mercy rule victory. The reigning champions started clinically as a Leyna Bruggemann hit to right field saw Kate Telford cross for the first score of the game, and then they took to the field and started with a three up, three down effort in the field. Demons' first base Bella Morale then pulled off an inspirational play, taking a reflex catch from an Emmerson Hann line drive and then having the composure to play her own base to effect the double play. Not to be outdone, Warriors late season recruit Imogen Walker took a great diving catch, just when Cody Manning would have thought she had found safe territory. But just when it looked like the match was looming as an arm wrestle, Warriors found stunning form with the bat and Demons decision to intentionally walk the heavy hitting Bruggemann – concerned that the league MVP had the capacity to score the two runners on second and third – backfired. Clare Chaplin stepped up to the plate with bases loaded and scoring those two runners with a well placed safe hit and when Maddy Hann, who picked up a game high three safehits for the title decider, also found safe territory at right field to score Bruggemann, Warriors had built a 5-0 advantage and things started to look shaky for Demons. Courtesy of some sloppy fielding errors and Mackenzie Millard getting hit by a Bruggemann pitch, Demons had their first real shot at

scoring but Tayla Wilson-Smith has left stranded at third. Demons task was only made more difficult when Raquel Sneath hit a stunning three bagger at the top of the fourth and added another run to Warriors tally. At the bottom of the fourth, Manning was again victim to an outstanding catch – this time courtesy of Nic Vause at short stop and again Warriors made produced a three up, three down innings. In a bid to stem the Warriors batting barrage, Demons moved Montanna Millard to the mound but it made no difference to the in form Maddy Hann who found safe territory with a classy hit to centrefield and then Emmerson Hann produced the perfect bunt, not only advancing the runners but also using her pace to great effect to find her way safely to first. Sneath again found safe territory and Taylor Pearson also made good contact to centrefield and by the time Demons had a shot back in the batting box at the bottom of the fifth, the score was 8-0. Facing a deficit greater than seven runs, Demons just had to score to avoid a second successive mercy rule defeat in a title decider and Vause stepped in and made it next to impossible with a clinical double play and then a routine out at first clinched the title. Bruggemann, who gave up only two hits for the match, was named grand final MVP, meaning the star clinched every possible accolade in the 2017/18 season, winning all three association trophies – best & lifestyle1.net | 33

WINDY CONDITIONS TAKE THEIR TOLL ON SOUTH EAST VETERANS GOLF SCORES Sixty South East veterans golfers made their way to Beachport, earlier this month, on a very windy day, which reflected in the results. The local lad John Howe had the only below handicap round to take out first division, from Tony Steen, 37, and another local, Rod Carter, third, on a countback 36pts. “Howie” was disappointed he couldn’t get his usual NTPs, but was satisfied with the win. Second division was won by Lyndsay Copeman, after a fourway countback, on 36pts. He remarked that he knew he had to chip in on the 18th, and did so earning a 2 for 4pts. Chris Leach and Trevor Williams took 2nd and 3rd. The NTPs went to Tony McGregor and Barry Brook and the Ross Orchard went to Mike McRostie and Graeme Gurry, one of three visitors from the neighbouring Glenelg District. The ball rundown went to 31 or better. The next game is at Millicent on April 9, then a party of 38 will head off to Loxton for the annual Getaway from April 15 to 21, then normal programming resumes at Bordertown on April 30.

SPORT TIGERS POUNCE ON UNDERMANNED INDIANS After a season in the wilderness, missing the finals for the first time in many years, Tigers have made a triumphant return to the top of the Mount Gambier & District Baseball League with an entertaining 2-0 series win over South Indians. After a lop-sided game one on Friday night – a game where South star Bruce Morale seriously injured his knee and was forced from the game and the series – Saturday’s afternoon contest looked headed the same way when by the bottom of the third Tigers had secured a 5-0 advantage. South might have been battered and bruised but they were in no mood to concede and at the top of the fourth they bridged the gap as Dean Hamilton and Ben Morale found safe territory and Travis Lockwood then produced a near perfect bunt to advance the runners and give South its first look at scoring. Alex Lewis and Tom Castleman then also went to work in the batting box and at the end of the dig, the scoreboard read a more respectable 5-3. The improvement in performance from the batting box – and first ruins of the grand final series for South – seemed to spur the Indians on and when Hamilton struck out Dyllan Lane with no more scoreboard damage conceded, South looked like a new line-up. Hamilton, who ended game two with five safe hits, was again centre stage as his two bagger saw another run added to South’s tally and at 5-4, the Indians’ self belief returned and a clinical fielding effort followed. A routine out at first, a stunning centrefield catch by Steve Isaacson, who had to counter a very high fly ball and the blinding sun, and another routine out at first, South returned to the batting box – this time with Karl Ransom on the mound, replacing Tyler Horrigan. Ransom started with a strike out but then South was again able to turn batters into runners, thanks to a combination of fielding errors and strong batting, and an Isaacson double saw the Indians drew level. In fact, the Indians were able to create a loaded base situation but Tigers stood firm and made the out to stem the bleeding. There was no change in the score until the bottom of the seventh when Tigers was able to conjure loaded bases by again utilising their short game – this time through Jesse Foster – and then a balking call on Hamilton saw Tigers take the lead before a Karl Ransom hit deep to centrefield scored two further runs, despite Isaacson completing the catch and an 8-5 lead had Tigers back in control. South was unable to impact the scoreboard at

the top of the eighth and then South opted for a fresh arm on the mound with Ryan Placucci taking over from Hamilton. Tigers were again able to score and while South was able to get one run back at the top of the ninth, it wasn’t enough and the 9-6 scoreline saw Tigers crowned the 2017/18 champions. Courtesy of some critical plays and power batting, Brodie Foster was named grand final series MVP, taking home the Jeanette Burner Medal, named in honour of the late “baseball mum”, that was tied to the Tigers club. Division 2 The premiership curse continued for Central in Division two when they were soundly beaten by third placed Millicent. Millicent scored one in the first, two in the second, two in the third and four in the sixth while Central only managed a single run in the second inning, Millicent winning nine runs to one. Millicent pitcher, Darcy Pink, held the Magpie batters to just three safehits while the Bandits collected nine of their own. Central made eight errors to Millicent’s four. Division 3 In Division three, Central took charge of the game in the first inning where they scored three runs, one more was added in the third and a booming six more were scored in the fourth all, unearned. South scored their solitary run in the top of the fourth and the mercy rule was applied in the bottom of the fifth when Central added a single run to win eleven runs to one. Central out hit South eight hits to two and made three errors to four. Shane Frankenburg, Central, pitched outstandingly only giving up those two hits and no walks. Under 15 Central set up their win in Under 15 in the bottom of the second when they scored the inning limit of seven runs. They added two more in the third and a further four in the fourth. Tigers/South’s solitary run came in the top of the fourth. The Magpies ran out winners eleven to one. Central had twelve safehits to one and made no errors to six.
