COVER • EXPLORE ALL THE BENEFITS OF CHINESE MEDICINE What started as a trip to Australia to learn English for Chinese couple Nai-Li (Nancy) Chen and Xiang-Cheng (Steven) Mu ended up a life changing journey and almost 30 years later the Mount Gambier based Chinese Medical Centre, which they run, continues to go from strength to strength. Arriving in Melbourne as students, in 1990, the couple received permanent residency in 1995 and promptly set about travelling Australia to find somewhere to call home, at least for the short term. That search didn’t take very long. The couple were travelling from Melbourne to Adelaide, passing

through Mount Gambier, and the rest, as they say, is history. That was almost 24 years ago, and the town Nancy and Steven fell in love with, is very much now considered home. “It was so tidy and clean and quiet and there were no Chinese medicine services,” Nancy said. “We moved here two days before we opened the business on April 10, 1995, with just our car and a trailer, we didn’t have much at all.” In the early years, the Chinese Medical Centre, which was originally in Sturt Street, was run by Nancy and Steven, as they juggled reception duties, appointments and raising their two children. They used just two rooms, one for reception and a waiting room and the other as a consulting room, living in the remainder of the premises. “We didn’t have a lot of patients in the first year,” Nancy said. That certainly has changed though, and, now located at 200 Commercial Street East, where they moved just over two years ago, they have a strong loyal clientele, as well as a steady stream of new patients turning to Chinese medicine. Steeped in 5000 years of history, Chinese medicine, which at its heart is all about prevention and healing yourself, has eventually established a solid reputation and Nancy and Steven have seen patient numbers rise from in the hundreds, to the 15,000 strong client list it is today. Nancy brings with her both Chinese and Western medical credentials and qualifications, having been inspired to enter medicine by her parents. Her

father was a renowned doctor in Chinese medicine and her mother was a western medicine trained practitioner. “We are all about helping people prevent and treat disorders, imbalances and diseases or illnesses by using natural therapies such as acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and massage,” Nancy said. The Mount Gambier Chinese Medical Centre offers a range of Chinese Medicine including acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, cupping therapy, moxibustion and specialising in dietary and lifestyle advice. “We focus on the underlying cause of people’s conditions and health issues as well as treat the symptoms,” Nancy said. “We try to prevent health issues, to prevent disease.” The centre has a particularly proud history of working with patients who struggle to fall pregnant and have a list of more than 70 overjoyed parents whom the centre has been able to help start a family.

A LABOUR OF LOVE It has been a labour of love for artist Mary-Anne Le Roux, as she unveils her latest exhibition – Listen to the Quiet Voices – 12 Books Transformed. And it is her love of painting, stencilling, printing, reading and most of all, her late father, that has inspired this project. Opening last Saturday and running until September 1, Mary-Anne’s unique take on bringing discarded books back to life is on show at the Mount Gambier Library. And unlike most art exhibitions, this one is as much about the tactile as it is visual, with Mary-Anne encouraging visitors to pick up and flick through each book, where each page is painstakingly reclaimed as a new canvas for Mary-Anne’s work. Reviving pre-loved books became a focus of Mary-Anne’s work when she was sitting with her dying father in an Adelaide nursing home and she needed a portable project and one that could be interrupted without affecting the finished product. “I worked on two books there as I could easily put them down with the many interruptions of staff coming into his room,” Mary-Anne said. “I drew my dad as he lay in bed and I drew my memories of my dad and I when I was young – we were very, very close.” Her father’s death only saw the book project invigorated. “I kept working on the books as it somehow made me feel closer to him,” she said. For Mary-Anne, the books are now telling new stories – ones she has created. “Every page of the book has

been lovingly painted and I am amazed to see how they have been transformed,” she said. “Each book now tells a new story, of my journey, as an artist, a daughter and someone who lives in and loves the South East.” Mary-Anne moved to the region 25 years ago and completed a Certificate IV in Art in the early 2000s, with the past six months consumed by compiling the 12 books for this exhibition. The first person to ever see Mary-Anne’s book art was her mother and the positive reaction also helped motivate Mary-Anne to continue her newfound passion. “Mum said she had seen colouring in before but never anyone colouring in a book,” Mary-Anne said. Mary-Anne has shown a small selection of her work in cafes before but this counts as her first major exhibition and she has timed it as part of the South Australian Living Artists (SALA) festival, which runs throughout this month. “There have been times when I’ve wondered if I’ve bitten off more than I can chew,” Mary-Anne said. She has established a disciplined routine though, working around five sessions a day on the books, which equates to around five hours. The book art was an idea first explored when she

EXPERIENCE OF A LIFE TIME

was studying at TAFE and took a textile class where they did some similar book restoration type work and so MaryAnne has scoured op shops and second hand book stores to find pre-loved books and breathe new life into them. As part of her exhibition she is holding a free demonstration of book art on Sunday, August 26, between 12 and 2pm. And the full time artists is already planning the next chapter of her career when she heads to a course in October in Melbourne that is centred on using natural material and taking the considerable amount of toxic materials out of her studio space and run a more sustainable practice. “I am actually really resistant to change but I do feel this is something I have to do,” Mary-Anne said. “But as an artist you need a new challenge and I try and be environmentally sustainable in every other area of my life so why not the art?”

She might have had to run off around three or four hours a night sleep for the 10 days of the Artist Intensive VocalizeU summer school program in Los Angeles last month but Ellyana Sims didn’t feel tired – only inspired and invigorated. “It was amazing,” Ellyana said. “They promoted the program as life changing and it actually was. It was an incredible experience. It was just music from when I woke up to when I went to bed.” There was 80 music industry hopefuls at the summer school program, including former Mount Gambier songstress Caroline Tucker, who is now based in Sydney, and they were rubbing shoulders with genuine industry heavyweights, including a

producer who has worked with Kanye West, another who worked with Justin Bieber on his hit Despacito, a vocalist who toured with Robbie Williams and song writer Eric Leva, who has just written DNCE’s new single. “Everyone there knows someone big in the music industry or has worked with someone big.” It was back to back classes during the day before the performance showcase every night, where a different group of industry experts watched the performances, provided feedback and were part of a post-show question and answer session. And while there was barely time to tune her guitar, Ellyana (pictured above during the summer school program) has made some wonderful friends, including people from Australia she is set to collaborate with on song writing projects in the near future. Ellyana’s classes of choice were pop song writing, production, the Naked Vocalist based singing class and a business class, to get an insight into all facets of the music industry. Such was the professionalism of the summer school program, the students had to present themselves industry ready at all times, with hair and make up done and an appropriate outfit. “To be able to learn every day from people who live in the industry was so amazing,” Ellyana said. “They were able to tell us what it takes to get there and how you can get there. I am so grateful that my parents have been so supportive and have been prepared to give me opportunities like this.” Going forward, Ellyana already has plans to return to the summer school in 2019, has Year 12 to complete at Tenison Woods College and then has her sights firmly set on a place at the Australian Institute of Music in Melbourne.



COUNCIL WANTS TO HEAR FROM YOU ON PROPOSED CENTRE As Mount Gambier City Council continues to crunch the numbers and formulates a detailed report into

projected operational costs for the proposed Mount Gambier Regional Sport and Recreation Centre, the

community is being encouraged to have its say into the multi-million dollar project. Whether by contacting a local councillor, speaking to one of the 17 local residents who form the Community Reference Group or by heading to www. haveyoursaymountgambier.com.au to view the draft concept plans and also provide your own suggestions and opinions, council wants the wider community to take ownership of the development, that has been touted in a variety of guises and forums over the past three decades. There is no news yet on the success or otherwise of council’s submission of an Expression of Interest to the Federal Government’s Regional Growth Fund and that may still be a couple of months away but the waiting game for funding news has not slowed the work being done by council staff to ensure all the I’s are dotted and the T’s are crossed in terms of costings and design. Council has also been meeting with a variety of interest groups, primarily to ascertain their thoughts and vision for such a community facility, but also to better share council’s vision for what is set

to be so much more than a swimming pool and sports centre. Earlier this month, they held a week of workshops with young children to see what they would want to see as part of the Mount Gambier Regional Sport and Recreation Centre, with a meeting also held with representatives of music and the arts to see what they would need from the centre to make it suitable for all things cultural. Service clubs and groups including Meals on Wheels have also been at the table with council to express their views. And the meetings

with the community reference group continue, while council has also beefed up its information campaign through social and traditional media. “There was a lapse there for a while but for the past month, council has really started to put the information they have out there,” Community Reference Group member Nathan Stratford said. “We have noticed people becoming much more engaged again. People are starting to think outside the box and realise it is not just about basketball, netball and swimming but that the vision has always been it will be a community hub.” Nathan said the negative publicity about the proposed centre was all part of the process, although his personal experience was the project still has significant positive support. “Hopefully in the next month we will be able to see the business case and be able to see the dollars and cents involved and it will either stack up or it won’t,” he said. “I think people understand we need an indoor swimming pool and some sort of major sporting hub but all the other community groups should have as much say because we want it to be a centre everyone will use.” Nathan encouraged people to head to the website to have their say or to approach the representatives on the Community Reference Group to ensure everyone’s views are heard. Mayor Andrew Lee has also called for as much community input as possible. “It’s important to remember that at this stage the facility is not a done deal,” Mayor Lee said. “Community consultation will continue throughout the entire process and we will know more about operational costs in September. Your comments and feedback are important, as input from the community regarding the use, purpose and design is the information that will determine the operating costs that both council and the community are keen to know.” The $40million dollar project is seeking $20million from the Federal Government and $10 from the State Government to bankroll the community hub. Above - Community Reference Group members Hazel Grant & Graham Dowie want to hear your thoughs on the concept design for the proposed Mount Gambier Sport & Recreation Centre.

GENEROUS WINDFALL HANDED OVER TO RFDS A committed group of Millicent volunteers has presented a $24,000 donation to the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS). The annual donation takes the group’s total contribution to the life-saving service to more than $380,000 over the past 20 years. “The RFDS lands twice a day in the South East to airlift a patient to Adelaide for life-saving surgery or specialist medical treatment,” said RFDS Millicent and District Support Group president John Chalmers. “Everyone in the area knows somebody who has been flown by the RFDS – it’s such a vital service and you never know when it might be you or a loved one who will need the Flying Doctor. I’d like to thank each and every member of the RFDS Millicent and District Support Group – all of whom are volunteers – and our local community for their generous donations and unwavering support of our fundraising efforts throughout the year.” Mr Chalmers presented the cheque for $24,000 to RFDS Central Operations Volunteer Coordinator Lindy Allchurch, at the group’s AGM last Tuesday. “The commitment and dedication of the RFDS Millicent and District Support Group – matched by the generosity of the local community – will help us continue to save lives, when and where it is needed most,” Ms Allchurch said. “On behalf of everyone at RFDS – and the thousands of South Australians we airlift every year – we offer our heartfelt thanks for your hard work and service to your local community.” Ms Allchurch added that enquiries to get involved in volunteering to help the RFDS were always welcome.

NARACOORTE STUDENTS SET TO SEE THE WORLD Naracoorte High School Year 10 students, Olivia Neagle (left) and Sophie Bates (right) have been selected to participate n a studuet exchange. Sophie will be heading to Canada for three months this year while Olivia will be heading to New Zealand for five months in 2019. Both Sophie and Olivia will stay with host families, attend a local high school and get involved in their respective host communities. They will gain a firsthand knowledge of a different culture, achieve greater independence, confidence and maturity in their roles as ambassadors for Australia. The Naracoorte High School students went through a lengthy selection process, including writing several letters and answering questions as to why they would be good candidates for Australia “I had to write two essays – one to the ambassador about what adversity means to me and the other letter was to Malcolm Turnbull about a topic of international importance and mine related to palm oil,” Olivia said. “After attending an information session in Adelaide last year I have had my heart set on going on exchange to another country so I cannot wait for this life changing opportunity.” Both girls were interviewed in their homes before being selected for the program. “I am hoping to gain a richer understanding of another culture other than Australia, experience and complete some of my education in a new and different country, make new friends and gain a greater general knowledge and understanding of the world, ” Sophie said. Sophie departs for Canada in November his year and Olivia leaves for New Zealand in January 2019.

PENOLA TOWN ENTRANCE PROJECT PUT ON HOLD In a joint decision made by Wattle Range Council and the Penola District Business & Tourism Association (PDBATA) the Penola Town Entrance Statement project will be deferred until the completion of the second stage of the Penola Bypass. Council’s chief executive officer Ben Gower explained the rationale behind the decision. “Given that the Liberal Party made an election promise to complete the Bypass, it makes sense to delay the project to ensure the final locations for the Entrance Statements are optimised,” he said. “This will also allow us to pursue efficiencies that can be achieved through utilising bypass infrastructure - like new electricity connections to assist with illuminating the statements.” As Council will be working closely with the Department of Transport on this project, we will be resuming primary project management responsibilities. That said, we will continue to work very closely with PDBATA on their design and final placement. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of PDBATA who have contributed to this project and we look forward to working with the association through to its completion.”

TIME IS TICKING FOR PET REGISTRATION A reminder to South Australian dog and cat owners that all council pet registrations are due by August 31. Pet owners can now simply register or renew their dog or cat’s registration on the internet with the new Dogs and Cats Online website, which launched on July 1. Dog and Cat Management Board Chairperson Felicity-ann Lewis said Dogs and Cats Online is a new centralised database, combining South Australia’s 68 council databases into a one-stop shop to manage the state’s pet registration, microchip details as well as breeder and seller information. “We urge pet owners to take advantage of the online system to pay their pet registration on time,” Dr Lewis said. “All dogs registered will receive a once-off registration number printed on a plastic grey tag. The new rules mean owners can replace this grey tag with a metal disc of their choice. It can be any design the owner wishes, as long as the registration number is engraved legibly.” The Dog and Cat Management Board also reminds pet owners that all South Australian dog and cat microchip information is required by law to be entered correctly in Dogs and Cats Online. Cat registration fees may apply to cats kept in the councils that have cat registration in their by-laws. “Dogs and Cats Online is the new statewide, central tool to help council, pounds and shelters identify found dogs and cats and reunite them with their owners as soon as possible,” Dr Lewis said “So it is important that your pet’s microchip information is kept up to date in the system.” Dogs and Cats Online is one of four major South Australian pet reforms that began on July 1 this year. The reform also included mandatory desexing for dogs and cats born after July 1, compulsory microchipping for all dogs and cats as well as new rules for dog and cat breeders and sellers.

ACCESS THE FUTURE FOR FREE AT THE LIBRARY The Mount Gambier Library is known for being a place where people of all ages can go to relax, learn or catch up

with friends. They have now created a space where the community can go to learn about technology they can’t use

at home. “The makers space is where people of all ages can be exposed to new equipment and lifelong learning,” Mount Gambier Library community engagement coordinator Kristi Leamey said. The digital technology part of this space involves the 3D Printer, Wacom digital tablets and the brand new Virtual Reality Headsets. The space is open to the public on Tuesdays 2–5pm and the first Saturday of every month 11am- 1pm. The 3D printer which has been part of the library for quite some time now and has become very popular with both adults and children as it is so easy. “The create your own 3D object,” Ms Leamey said. “You use a program called ‘tinkercad’ on a laptop and then design it. It is super easy to use because you don’t need any design knowledge, even a 4-year-old could do it.” The computer then programs the design into the printer, makes the base, then in tiny little slices it builds its way up the object. The objects are made from plastic filament. “It takes about an hour so sometimes

there’s a line-up of people waiting,” Ms Leamey said. It is completely free to design something, and if you want to print, it is just a gold coin donation. They have a team of volunteers who will

help you design scan and print in 3D. “This machine isn’t just about making toys,” Ms Leamey said. “It can be used to make many other things such as tools for mechanics, cookie cutters, phone cases and even for making prototypes for things. The opportunities are endless. Some mechanic places have asked us to make certain parts for them as they can’t afford to wait for ordered in ones. If you can’t buy it, make it.”. The Mount Gambier Library is hosting Adult Learners week starting on September 1 and will be holding adult workshops on 3D Design as part of that week’s program, where they will be able to design and print a bookmark. The Wacom tablets are another great gadget that the Mount Gambier Library include in this space. “The Wacom tablets replicate a sheet of paper, except what you draw goes up onto the laptop screen,” Ms Leamey said. “You can make comic books, create fonts and many other things. The tablets are mostly popular with the after-school kids.” The library offers custom lessons, and again it is all free. The newest edition to the makers space is the Virtual Reality Headsets. Aimed at adults, the VR headsets are a way that people can explore the virtual world. The library will be holding workshops were people can visit places they would never be able to see in real life. “We encourage people to grab a group of friends and come in and we will tailor a class that is perfect for them,” Ms Leamey said. The Mount Gambier Library has invested in this technology so they could create a place where the community can come and explore and experience new things.

CAKE DECORATION DEMONSTRATIONS BY SOME OF THE INDUSTRY’S BEST The South Eastern Cake Designers are holding a special cake demonstrating day on Saturday, September 15. Guest demonstrators Brenda Damen and Marlene Spratt and local guru June Jones will be teaching some of their techniques to anyone who wants to gain some knowledge in cake decorating. The day will run from 9.15am to 4pm and will be filled with mini workshops and demonstrations from the best. They will be showing chocolate and royal icing pipe work, and a demonstration on how to make a figurine of the famous children character ‘Elsa’ from Frozen. Brenda Damen is a demonstrating chocolate technique making flowers and a flamingo. She started her catering and patisserie industry in 1996 called Patisserie For All, and since 2000 it has been a full-time business.

Her skills have grown since she stared decorating, as she competes in many competitions throughout the year.


Advertorial • Financial Literacy for Women

YOUR FINANCIAL FUTURE MADE SIMPLE Roslyn Taylor knows numbers and finance but she has become acutely aware that some people don’t even have the most basic skills required when juggling their own financial situation and she decided to do something about it. The business adviser and BAS agent, who owns and runs Mount Gambier based business Sums and Solutions, is facilitating a Financial Literacy Program for Women, launching on September 9. Roslyn attended a leadership program in Canberra earlier this year, one of only 12 women selected for the National Rural Women’s Coalition run event, and part of that leadership program saw the participants come up with a project they could then deliver in their own community. It was just a theoretical exercise but Roslyn wasn’t prepared to just leave her idea in a filing cabinet and after months of hard work is rolling out the inaugural program here in the Limestone Coast. “We were learning how to make these things happen, how to influence government and I thought I just really want to make this happen and this is the result of that,” Roslyn said. “Just through my own personal experience, I have a lot of friends who don’t even know how to do a budget and they are not sure where to go or where to find the information they need when it comes to their finances.” From superannuation to a household budget, from newly single

adult women to those just starting out, Roslyn is hoping this program will help future proof the financial futures of women of all ages and backgrounds. “Many of us are just one pay cheque away from poverty,” she said. “The problem is getting worse and worse and it’s very scary what’s happening., This program is about prevention.” For Roslyn, finding experts to run the various workshops was the first challenge. “People often feel more comfortable talking about their finances with someone they don’t know – someone they don’t see down the street in their local community,” she said. But as she looked to source those experts from away, the price tag of up to $6000 became prohibitive. “But I wasn’t going to give up,” Roslyn said. “I eventually had some luck with the Salvos in Adelaide who run a program called You’re The Boss and they agreed to come to Mount Gambier and run the first three workshops.” Those first three workshops focus on superannuation, budgeting and then insurance and avoiding pay day lenders. That will see a trained financial counsellor and financial literacy educator on our doorstep, answering all your questions and handing over some great tips and advice. Promotion of Roslyn’s Canberra leadership training and her passion for a financial literacy program for women caught the eye of the Department of Human Services and they made

contact, giving Roslyn another source of expertise for her remaining workshops. “They saw what my project was about and let me know they already offer similar services but it seems many do not know about them,” Roslyn said. Those conversations, months ago, has seen Roslyn team up with the Government Department and they will deliver the final three workshops , focusing on all aspects of preparing for retirement. “Even if running these workshops can help a small handful of people it would have been worth it,” Roslyn said. The financial guru is also out to make a point and she is hopeful if the uptake of this inaugural program is strong and positive, it would become an annual event on the region’s calendar. Roslyn has also deliberately chosen relaxing, friendly environments for the classes, with the Commodore on the Park, Mount Gambier Library and Lakes Resort all hosting sessions. Roslyn has set up a facebook page so head to https://www.facebook. com/FinancialLiteracyForWomen/ for more details and for the link to book your place at the inaugural program. Registration forms are also available from Hip Pocket, at 13 James Street, Mount Gambier. The September 9 launch will be headlined by National Rural Women’s Coalition president Alwyn Friedersdorff and business owner Nan Berrett. Alwyn is also treasurer of the Australian Local

Government Women’s Association, and serves on a number of State boards in Tasmania, and has served as an elected member of the WaratahWynyard Council since 2002. Alwyn completed a Graduate Certificate in Housing Management & Policy, at Swinburne University in 2000 and sat on a Ministerial Advisory Committee for the purpose of allocating Community Housing grants to community organisations in Tasmania. She has been honoured with the Centenary Medal and is a Rotary Club of Wynyard Paul Harris Fellow. Alwyn will speak about the NRWC and how it acts as a powerful voice for rural, regional and remote women across Australia. The NRWC represents the diverse views of women, helping to build a positive profile of their achievements and issues and providing policy advice to the Australian Government. NRWC also takes a leading role in ensuring that it helps as many rural, regional and remote women as possible to achieve their goals. e-LEADERSHIP programs have proven to be a positive force in building skills, resilience, and leadership programs that impact on many women through one woman’s learning. Nan is a proud older women in business, having taken the step to develop her media and marketing enterprise, Word Solutions after 25 years as a rural journalist. She is an alumnae of the National Rural Women’s Coalition e-Leaders program having

attended the Rural Regional and Remote Women’s Muster in Canberra in February this year, together with Roslyn and many other amazing visionary women. Nan will be speaking about her experience at the round table on rural, regional and remote Australian women’s homelessness which was held in Hobart this month - another initiative of the National Rural Women’s Coalition – where one of the factors contributing to homelessness was revealed as being lack of financial literacy. Above - Roslyn Taylor has coordinated the inaugural Financial Literacy for Women workshops.


COLLECTED STUPIDITY - WORK EXPERIENCE… By ROBBIE TANSEL We’ve had a work experience kid at Lifestyle1 this week. Her name’s Sophie…or Ella or Annabelle. Or whatever fifteen year old kids are called

these days. I don’t make much effort to learn people’s names, particularly if they’re really only likely to be a part of my life for a week.

The point of this story is not her name anyway. The point of the story is that she was a work experience kid. And she was so annoying. Have you noticed how annoying young people are these days? A classic example is the way they communicate on social media. One of them will put a selfie of themselves up, as in a desperate cry for attention. “Notice me. Love me. Pay attention to me. Acknowledge my existence. Make me feel like my meaningless existence is worth something.” Instead of ignoring the youngster and sending them a clear message that self esteem is something one earns by achieving something to feel pride in oneself, other youngsters will make comments.“Gawjus hun.” “Hot (emoji face with love hearts).” “Hot (multiple emoji faces with love hearts).” “Wow girl.” “You are beyond beautiful.” Throw in some flame emojis. It’s about time they came up with a vomit emoji.

As if that’s not bad enough, the person who originally posted the attention seeking selfie will then post a response to every message. “No you’re gawjus.” “Coming from you (emoji face blowing kisses).” “Not as hot as you (emoji with love heart eyes; flame emoji).” “Robbie, I’ve told you I find it creepy when you send me messages like this.” This is not what language was invented for, people. If Adam and Eve had have known this is what we would use language for they never would have invented it. Anyway, going back to work experience, one of my biggest criticisms of it is that it never quite captures the reality of working life. I’ve gone out of my way to help Sophie/Naomi/person with Irish accent/Aria/Anna/generic teenager name this week get a more realistic experience. I’ve organised for her to deal with all of my complaint emails. For those of you who think

that’s pretty unfair, I did give her a little bit of training that the key phrase to use to justify any of my behaviour is, “My article’s called Collected Stupidity. You’re not meant to go in expecting to learn something”. Surely being in a workplace is about dealing with whinging customers/clients? I’ve also been passing off large chunks of my work to her, just like every boss does in every workplace. She’s actually writing this article as we speak, so if there are any typos it’s her fault. As you can see, I’m also teaching her the key work skill of passing the blame. I must say, I don’t think Sophie/ Maddie/Charlotte/Kate/Rachael/maybe I should check this, is getting the best value out of work experience. Surely if you’re going to do work experience, you should go and do something with a bit of excitement. Sophie/Bradley/Hugh/I just don’t really care, could write stories about local news any time she wants. But how often will she get the chance to drive a semi trailer? When will be the next time that she gets to clean the windows of a skyscraper? It’s not every day that you get to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan. At what other time in your life will you get to write speeches for Bob Katter? Have a bit of a go, kids. If it’s work experience they have to let you do it. I think the youngsters have to be a bit more demanding as well. They only have the five days to get a bit of an understanding of the job; they really shouldn’t let people stop them from getting in and having a go. If you’re going to do work experience as a nurse, demand that they let you dish out some injections. If you’re working with a builder, surely you have to build a wall or two yourself. If you’re going to the police, surely you get to fire off a couple of shots. That reminds me of my work experience. I wasn’t organised for my work experience so Mum and Dad said I could do my week with them. We knocked over two petrol stations, broke into one of the neighbours’ house and stole a car. In typical work experience fashion though, I wasn’t actually allowed to do the job, but they did let me be the lookout and drive the getaway car so that was something. If your name is Liam/Parker/ Jean-Francois/Mahsun/Hamish/ Royden/Kynan and you’re wondering why I didn’t mention your random teenage name, maybe email me at robbietansel@gmail.com …or do your damn homework for Mr Owen. The poor bloke has lectured you so much he doesn’t even have enough hot air to blow up a balloon anymore.


AT A GLANCE

LANDCARE REGIONAL FUNDING FOR THE SOUTH EAST The people of the South East and Limestone Coast are among the communities who will be first to benefit from Australian Government investment under the Regional Land Partnerships component of the National Landcare Program’s second phase. The Australian Government today announced that it has selected 47 organisations across Australia to deliver on-ground environment and sustainable agricultural projects under the Regional Land Partnerships program. Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, David Littleproud, said that this signals the start of Regional Land Partnerships under the second phase of the National Landcare Program. “These 47 successful tenderers have demonstrated that they have the knowledge, capability and experience to deliver the services as needed by the community, at a price that provides the best value for money for the Government,” Minister Littleproud said. Assistant Minister for the Environment, Melissa Price, said that the Government looks forward to working with successful service providers and the community to deliver projects that will benefit, not only our environment, but also our economy and our towns and cities. “The Australian Government is proud to continue its long-standing commitment to natural resource management by investing $450 million over the next five years in local and regional-scale projects that

will help deliver national priorities,” Assistant Minister Price said. “Through the Regional Land Partnerships program, the Government is investing in projects that will help us meet the needs of our local communities and deliver on our international obligations and national priorities.” The Federal Member for Barker Tony Pasin welcomed the announcement as great news for the people of South East. “I wish to congratulate the South East Natural Resources Management Board (South East NRM Board)as the successful tenderer chosen to help the Government deliver its natural resource management priorities in the region,” Mr Pasin said. “I’m pleased to say that the people of the South East will be among those who will benefit from the first wave of new projects to be delivered under the Regional Land Partnerships program. One of the South East NRM Board projects to be delivered will improve the trajectory of the nationally endangered Southeastern Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo, a priority species under the Threatened Species Strategy. We are also looking forward to a project to enhance the Coorong National Park and manage Ramsar values along the Limestone Coast and a project to adapt the South East agricultural industries to adapt to changes in climate and markets. It is worth pointing out that community engagement is a major component of the service delivery, with at least 20 per cent of project budget dedicated to supporting small, on-ground projects that are delivered by, or directly engage with, the local landcare community.” For further information on the Regional Land Partnerships, visit: http://www. nrm.gov.au/ Above - Presiding member of the South East NRM Board Fiona Rasheed discusses the local projects with Member for Barker Tony Pasin.

LIFE SAVING DONATION ALREADY HAVING AN IMPACT A cot donated by United Way Glenelg to Portland District Health has had an immediate impact for a local doctor. PDH staff doctor Mohammed Rashid became the first to use the cot when his four-month-old son Mishraq was taken to the Urgent Care Centre. Dr Rashid said having a suitable cot was beneficial for Mishraq, who was taken to hospital about three weeks ago with a urinary tract infection, and would benefit many more children in years to come. “It’s helpful to have it at the right height and a suitable size,” he said. Urgent Care Centre nurse unit manager Deb Tozer said that prior to the donation the centre didn’t have an Australian Safety Standard cot for infants and toddlers. “This is much safer and convenient for treating infants and toddlers and also for times when they have to stay in our department while their carer or parent is being treated,” Ms Tozer said. “Staff can now safely observe and care for small children in a suitable cot where they feel safe and comfortable.” During 2016-17 PDH’s urgent care centre treated 542 children under four years. United Way Glenelg executive officer Nicole Carr said was thrilled to be able to assist in funding the infant cot for the urgent care centre. “Families with young children can now feel reassured their child will be safe, comfortable and secure while PDH staff attend to the medical care of the patient,” Mrs Carr said.

NEW SIGNAGE FOR SEASIDE TOWN Visitors to Port MacDonnell will have some help finding their way around the fishing town and popular surrounding tourist sites with thanks to new signage recently installed. The signage is in response to consultation undertaken by the District Council of Grant for its Port MacDonnell Urban Design Framework and Master Plan. Strategies for Port MacDonnell Signage and Tourism Signage within the District Council of Grant have been implemented with the first signs erected at the corner of Elizabeth and Standish Street, and at the eastern entrance to Port MacDonnell. The new integrated signage is intended to be informative and aims to de-clutter street junctions creating a more attractive image for the town. One of the signs features beautiful images supplied by well-known local photographer Ockert LeRoux, and all feature distinctive Port MacDonnell branding. The branding was first developed by Anna Mitchell of Relish Design Studio and Sole Sisters Collective for the Port MacDonnell Community Complex in 2011. It features on the interior walls, library shelves, bespoke carpet design and exterior signage of the Community Complex.

AN INSIGHT INTO THE DRUG ICE LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE This is a show that pulls no punches and has been built, above everything else, on months of research across all elements of the drug ice - the users, the dealers, the law enforment agencies, the rehabilitation centres and Gener8 Theatre, under the leadership of Jamie Harding and John Crouch, are presenting a show that will educate above all else. In the Pines is a thriller that examines how the new economy of drugs is touching the most unlikely aspects of our local communities. It will hit the Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre stage this week on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday and will give incredible insight into one of the biggest challenges regional communities face. In the Pines is presented by Gener8 Theatre and assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory board, the Government of South Australia through Arts South Australia, Country Arts SA, the Australian Government Regional Arts Fund, the Government of South Australia’s Regional Development Fund, the Adelaide Festival Centre’s iNSPACE program, City of Mount Gambier, Beach Energy, Ovation Centre of Performing Arts and Novus Res SYNOPSIS When Claire and Simon McRae moved back to Claire’s home, the regional centre of The Mount, tragedy strikes at the heart of their marriage. Torn apart by grief, and financial strain each make desperate decisions that draw them into a new and dangerous world inhabited by some of those closest to them. Finally, The Enforcer is called and what turned out as a quick fix solution, suddenly becomes a deadly situation. As the live theatre performance switches to Virtual Reality, we head into the pines where the legacy of Claire and Simon’s decisions have to be paid by someone. SUITABLE FOR 15 YEARS & OVER

NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR DONATIONS United Way Glenelg is set to provide an innovative way for local people to support its literacy program, Dolly Parton Imagination Library, by introducing Donation Tap Point as a new channel to raise funds. Donation Tap Point technology is allowing people to simply “tap to donate” to a pre-set amount determined by the charity. United Way Glenelg executive officer Nicole Carr was excited to introduce the new technology to Portland. “An individual can make a donation simply by tapping their card on the system, which displays United Way Glenelg’s branding with the pre-set donation amount of $2,” Mrs Carr said. “Trends are indicating that traditional methods of coin collecting are reducing and introducing Donation Tap Point is an innovative alternative to cash collection in an increasingly cashless society. Donation Tap Point would not have gone ahead without the financial backing from Port of Portland. They have taken on 100 per cent of the costs, both the hardware and software for the next two years. This means all the money donated goes towards more children in the Glenelg Shire receiving free monthly books, building a literacy-rich community” she said. Research shows that learning to read is one of the most important factors in educational attainment, and that early exposure to books and stories substantially contributes to success at school. The unit will make its debut at Subway Portland with franchisee, Andrew Wilson eager to be part of the project. “We’re excited to be the first business to host Donation Tap Point. United Way Glenelg is an important charity to our community and Subway Portland is happy to support this new approach,” Mr Wilson said. The unit will be hosted by a new business every two months in order to reach out to different demographics. If you’re interested in hosting Donation Tap Point at your business please contact Nicole Carr for more information on 0410 513 305 or email mail@ unitedwayglenelg.com.au Above - Subway’s Andrew Wilson with Janine Marra, from Port of Portland.

PIONEER SET TO HEAD UP TITANS PROGRAM “It was an opportunity I just couldn’t refuse. It is a chance to make a difference to young kids.” And that in a nutshell is why Pioneers captain Tom Daly has taken up the challenge of head coach of the Titans Basketball High Performance Sports Program, with his Pioneers coach and mentor Richard Hill as the Director of Basketball. “I have been lucky to have lots of basketball experiences and been around lots of great people and at some point you need to pass that on,” Daly said. In fact, he has been doing just that for most of his senior career, first at Sturt Basketball Club, in Adelaide, and now, in Mount Gambier, where he has worked one on one with a number of junior players over the journey as well as coaching junior teams. “I have always enjoyed coaching and it was always something I had thought about doing but it was basically on the backburner for when I finished playing,” Daly said. And while he is hopeful of a few good seasons yet in elite basketball, putting the frustration of the injury riddled 2018 behind him, the chance to start out on his post-basketball coaching journey with the head coach role at Tenison Woods College was not the kind of kickstart you knock back. He might just be starting out on his “serious” coaching journey but Daly is already tapping into other sports, in the vein of AFL coach Alistair Clarkson, to learn as much as he can from coaches across all elite sporting codes. “I watch a lot of AFL and I have started to get into the NFL as well where I love watching the coaches and the quarterbacks and how they run their teams,” Daly said. “I think you’ve got to have an open mind to learning.” Daly has already touched base with the AIS men’s basketball coach, when the Pioneers were in Canberra a few weeks ago, and is set to kickstart the formal part of coaching accreditation. “Getting the job at Tenison has really focussed me on really working towards a future as a coach and doing all the training I can do to be the best I can be,” Daly said. Contracted until the end of this year, Daly is hopeful his tenure will run well beyond that and early indications are it will. Daly has already run sessions with the high performance basketball students and also worked with the SAPSASA team. On court, Daly is already comfortable as he looks to develop players across all ages and abilities, but he admits it has been a steep learning curve in terms of the organisational side of things off the court. “I am definitely learning on the fly where that is concerned,” he said. “Just figuring out the school system and putting the program together.” Putting together that program is a collaboration with Hill, who also assists with training sessions when he is in Mount Gambier during the off season. Taking on the Tenison job is not what the Tom Daly who arrived in Mount Gambier six years ago was envisaging in his future. “When I came here I did see it as a stepping stone,” Daly said. “But you never know what opportunities are going to come up and I am very happy with how everything has worked out.” He is now married and has a young family and Mount Gambier is definitely home. Daly is also focussed on the 2019 SEABL season and after a month of rehabilitation and relaxation, he is looking to ramp up the training again so he is ready for pre-season. “I should be 100 percent come preseason,” Daly said. “I have lost fitness but it is so long before we start again and I am just about to get back into it ready for when training starts up in October. It was frustrating this season not to be able to get out there as often as I wanted and when you are the captain and you can’t lead on the court, you feel like you are letting people down. From a leadership point of view it was a very testing and frustrating year.” But he is hopeful that is all behind him as he embarks on a new job and then a new season – his seventh as a Pioneer. “For me, the most rewarding part of coaching is seeing kids progress and learn,” Daly said. “And it’s not just about the basketball but also about putting no limits on what they can achieve and developing them as people not just basketballers.” Tom’s own background as a basketballer is also something he feels gives him an edge as a coach as he was not always on the elite pathway. “I didn’t make a State team until I was top age Under 16,” he said. “I was small and my skills were no better than some of the other kids so I really had to work at it. In under 12s I played division three and in under 16s, I was in the division two team to start off with.” Daly characterises his own game honestly, and some would say, harshly, but he believes his weaknesses have helped him develop his strengths. “I am quick but no quicker than lots of other players and in every other aspect of the skills of the game I would say I was average but what I am good at is I know the plays and I really know the opposition and their tendencies and habits,” Daly said. “I am so competitive and that has forced me to find other ways to win. It taught me to be able to really think the game and that’s my strength. Mind you, I have played basketball almost every day for 10 years so a lot of it is playing on instinct as well.” Aside from his Tenison coaching gig, Daly is also coaching the Lakers Under 16 Division 2 boys team this coming representative season.

SPORT NEW TRAINING PROGRAM TO BE LAUNCHED THIS WEEKEND Minds need training too. That’s the message being issued by headspace National Youth Mental Health Foundation as they launch headcoach - a new national campaign for young men. Headlined by high profile sports stars Usman Khawaja, Tom Boyd, Daniel Arzani and James Tedesco, the headcoach program will be officially unveiled at Vansittart Park this Saturday as part of the Western Border Football League’s 2nd semi finals. Running from 11am to 4pm in the bright green headspace tent, Saturday’s launch will be looking to engage as many young men as possible, sharing the seven tips to maintaining a healthy headspace, which can also can be found at www.headspace.org.au/ headcoach The statistics speak for themselves. One in seven young men aged between 16 and 24 experience depression or anxiety each year - yet a meagre 13% seek help and suicide is the leading cause of death for young men in Australia. By bringing together some of the country’s most elite athletes to share tips and advice from their own experience, headcoach highlights the importance to young men of training their bodies and their minds. “While young men commonly understand the importance of maintaining their physical health, they do not place the same emphasis on maintaining their mental health, and many simply don’t know where to start,” said headspace CEO Jason Trethowan. “At headspace we are absolutely committed to ensuring all young men have the tools and confidence they need to be more proactive and open in managing their mental health and wellbeing. Simple tips like staying connected to others, building coping strategies, doing things you enjoy and sleeping well, can all play a vital role in building resilience and maintaining a healthy headspace. “ headcoach seeks to educate young men that maintaining their mental health is just as important as maintaining their physical health.

Tom Boyd (pictured) knows this better than most. As a premiership champion with the AFL’s Western Bulldogs in 2016 his physical dominance was telling in a superb individual performance. “We had an amazing year,” Tom said. “We managed to win the flag which was an incredible experience. But from my point of view I think it papered over a lot of the cracks that were starting to appear in my mental health. The real moment my mind started to turn was when I began having panic attacks while driving - that physiological effect of your heart racing, you’re sweating and you can’t concentrate, feeling dizzy. It’s hard for some people to understand. It’s not tangible, it’s not something you can see.” In June last year, at age 21, Tom announced he would take time away from the game to receive treatment for clinical depression and anxiety. He was fortunate to have access to a team psychologist from whom he drew enormous support during his recovery and he now maintains his mental wellbeing much as he does his physical health. “Some of the things that can be helpful for me during challenging times can be as simple as monitoring my breathing and getting ahead of moments of stress and anxiety,” he said. “Now I can say to myself I’m not feeling great, let’s go and do something enjoyable, let’s take the dog for a walk or get the camera out or go surfing. It is so important to make time to look after your mental health. My mental health has hindered me more than any physical injury I’ve sustained in my life and I’ve had multiple surgeries. I really had no idea of some of the techniques you can use not only to help with mental health issues but also to prevent them.” Local headspace representatives will be on hand at Saturday’s launch as they look to encourage young men to focus on their mental health. headspace Mount Gambier Youth Reference Group member Liam Fennell said

headcoach is an extremely important campaign to help young men. “It is so important that young men know there are things they can do to support their mental health,” he said. “The headcoach campaign is about giving young men the practical skills and knowledge they need to be more proactive in supporting their mental health.” headspace Mount Gambier Centre Manager, Tasja Barelds said it is crucial that all young men feel safe and confident to seek the help they need. “We hope the headcoach campaign will empower all young men to feel as confident to talk about their mental health and wellbeing as they are their physical health,” she said. If you, or a young man you know is struggling they can seek support at headspace through faceto-face, online and telephone services. Headspace is also promoting another national mental health and suicide prevention campaign - the #youcantalk. Hosted by lifeline in collaboration with headspace, Black Dog Institute, Beyond Blue, Reachout, RUOK and Everymind. The aim of the campaign is to give young men the skills to recognise the signs that someone is thinking of suicide, talk about it openly and honestly and to know what to do if someone says they are not coping and need support.

BULLDOGS PREMIERSHIP DEFENCE ALIVE & KICKING Accurate kicking kept West Gambier in the hunt for a preliminary final berth but in the end a lack of opportunity hurt the Roos and the premiership defence of East Gambier lives to fight another week. The Bulldogs claimed a hard fought 17 point victory on a day when the reigning premiers fielded its best team for 2018 with all first choice players back from injury as they build towards another crack at the top prize. West arguably had the better of the first quarter as the Roos fought again what was a two or three goal breeze but in the last 10 minutes of the opened East was able to

break free and score three crucial goals that put it 21 point clear – a margin that most pundits would have said equated to the advantage of kicking with the wind. Ruckman Todd Lewis was influential in that opening quarter for the Roos, while Jesse Pfitzner’s run off half back was also pivotal and the hard working defender was one of West’s best in the season ending loss. Tom Holmes was also the key mover and shaker around the clearances, finding space where there was none and always using the ball well, despite the conditions. West was able to work its way back into the contest to trail by only three points at the main break, as they worked with the strengthening breeze, with the Roos also helped by some ill discipline from the Bulldogs, with two of the Roos. Majors coming from 50metre penalties. The wet, windy conditions only intensified as the match wore on and the second half was a genuine slog with again a 10 minute period late, seeing the Bulldogs secure a break going into the last. The 17 point three quarter time advantage was certainly not insurmountable with the wind heading to the northern end arguably increasing to a four or five goal breeze but when East secured the opening goal of the quarter and the rain returning with a vengeance, it started to resemble mission

impossible for the Roos. Both sides secured two goals apiece in the tough final quarter but the Roos were just unable to string scores together and put some scoreboard pressure on the reigning premiers. Steve Wenman kicked the only behind of the game for the Roos but it was immediately followed by the siren and West’s dream run in the second half of 2018 was over. Holmes

The campaign outlines further strategies when having a conversation with somebody: DO Let your friend or loved one know you have noticed they’re behaving differently If you feel uncertain and that your friend or loved one may be at risk, do ask the question. “are you having thoughts about suicide?’ Be prepared for the answer to be yes. Make sure they are safe for now. Show support and suggest they seek help. DON’T Don’t try to talk out of suicide by reminding them ‘what they gave got going for them’ or how much it would hurt their family and friends Don’t try to fix their problems, just listen with empathy and without judgement. Don’t dismiss it as ‘attention seeking’. Take them seriously and acknowledge the reasons they want to die. For more information, visit https://headspace. org.au/news/youcantalk-about-suicide-and-savelives/ If you or someone you know needs urgent support, talk to someone you trust or contact a crisis support service, such as beyondblue on 1300 22 46 36, Lifeline on 13 11 14. was outstanding for the Roos, while Reid Kuller continued his stellar season and won plenty of the football. Josh Ransom and Jack Dawe were the most influential Bulldogs with strong work at the stoppages and quality ball use, while Jayden Eldridge was the general down back, taking some critical marks and just always making the right decision with ball in hand. He repelled a number of West’s forays forward in the final term. John Forster also rates a mention as he somewhat sacrificed his own game, in conditions well suited to his in and under style of play, to quell the influence of Lawrence Bradley-Brown, while Mark Kieselbach and Todd Lewis went toe to toe in the ruck all day with both producing some critical clearance opportunities for their midfield. In other news from the weekend’s football, North Gambier’s reserves player Jordan Hatt, who was taken from the ground in an ambulance, has suffered concussion and a broken nose after hitting the ground awkwardly as a result of a strong tackle, and is on the mend after initial reports suggested the injuries could have been far worse.

GRAPPLING SUPERSTAR HEADED TO MOUNT GAMBIER A huge coup for the Mount Gambier Grappling Club with 10th Planet Brown Belt and Head Instructor at 10th Planet South Melbourne Josh Pecanstaing hosting a seminar on October 20. This is an awesome opportunity for all martial artists in the reigon and the grappling club is encouraging anyone interested to book a place to leanr from one of the sport’s best. Pecanstaing (pictured below) has a winning record in both Brazilian Jiu jitsu competition and MMA, and has trained multiple champion competitors. While in Mount Gambier Pecanstaing will be conducting a three

hour seminar, breaking down his competition winning techniques as well as hosting a question and answer opportunity for all attendees. “While we will have to cap the numbers to ensure mat space for all that come, this is open to anyone, regardless of who or what you train with and we’ve already had spots booked from as far away as Adelaide,” Mount Gambier Grappling Club’s Matthew Grubb said. Grubb has actually trained with the grapploing superstar. “I first trained with Josh when he was a student of my coach Frank Barca in 10th Planet Melbourne in 2009 and since then Josh has taken multiple training trips to America to train under the creator of the 10th planet system Eddie Bravo,” Grubb said. “I myself was lucky enough to join him in 2014 to train at 10th Planet Headquarters in downtown Los Angeles and he has earned the level of Brown Belt in the system, and also branched out and started his own school in South Melbourne a stones throw from the CBD, which is flourishing, with great numbers, but more importantly competition winning students.” The October 20 seminar will run from 11am to 2pm at a cost of $80 a head.

SPORT AT A GLANCE HOCKEY HEATS UP AS FINALS APPROACH UNDER 12 BOYS MATCH REPORT Redbacks and West U12 boys met for the last time prior to finals. Redbacks scored early from a field goal, putting West under pressure from the outset. The West defence had to work hard to stop the many advances into attack by the Redbacks forwards who were moving and passing well, with West goalie Noah Clark making some good saves. West had a number of scoring opportunities through penalty corners and field play, but were unable to convert. Redbacks scored again in the second half to lead 2-0. Despite some good attacking play by West, goals proved elusive and at full time Redbacks had secured the win, with the final scoreline 2-0.

FIRST OF THE JUNIOR FOOTBALL TITLES DECIDED

South Gambier took on North Gambier in the Under 14 Grand Final on August 12 at Malseed Park. As expected the game was a hard physical contest. North Gambier won the toss and kicked with the breeze and Bodey Hosking got North off to a fast start with a classy rovers goal but the Demons clamped down and the Tigers went in at quarter time with a one goal lead. The Demons with the aid of the breeze got an early goal through a Paul Vanikiotis free kick. South then opened up the game with some clean centre breaks and run from the backline with three quick goals to Ethan Sims, Mitch Harrold and Nick Wilke and went to the half time break with a 20 point lead. The third quarter saw the Demons squander

some opportunities and North fought back with goals to Emayah Young and a clever 50m goal from Brodie Allen to bridge the gap to 11 points at the last break. The fourth quarter was a dour affair with neither side getting free but when Ethan Sims snuck forward from the wing to mark & goal half way through the quarter the Demons were 17 points up and held on from there. For the Tigers Jay Turner and Tyler Harris worked hard in the middle, while Zach Clarke & Emayah Young were dangerous up forward and Brad Braithwaite & Ed New worked hard to repel the Demons attacks. For South the backline trio of Jake Walker, who won the Best on Ground medal, Lachie Thiele and Jordan Stephens started the South attacks while

the midfield through Ethan, Mitch and Noah Sims and Mitch Harrold were damaging all day. The Under 12 A carnival was a very close and hotly contested affair all day with the four Mt Gambier teams, Casterton and for the first time a Mid SE team making up the two Round Robin groups. The two Semi Finals were gripping affairs being decided by less than a goal with North defeating the MidSE team and South defeating East with both of the eliminated teams having plenty of opportunities. The Grand Final saw the Demons take a lead into half time but were unable to hold off the fast finishing Tigers who took out the 2018 Under 12 Lightning Carnival to end the season of WBJFL that saw record male & female participation.

It was a classic final – one of those matches where it was a shame there had to be a loser. Heartbreakingly for West Gambier, it was the Roos whose season ended. They threw everything at the Bulldogs but fell one agonising goal short of booking a place in the preliminary final. It was a match led by the defensive efforts of both teams, with Maddy Teakle coming out of the blocks firing and dominating the first quarter for West. Her combination with Amy Cram ensured there was very little easy ball for Tenille Gray and Sarah Lock and it was Teakle’s pressure over the shot in the dying minutes that forced a held ball call that almost allowed the Roos to at least force the match into overtime. At the other end, it was a sluggish opening quarter for the Bulldogs defensively, but after quarter time Morgan Amy and Bo Creek, also did not allow much easy ball for Tahlia Earl and Lisa McGregor. The Roos duo rarely took a ball in space but rather always under pressure, but both team’s shooting combinations maintained good composure and accurate finishing, given the relentless nature of the pressure applied by their opponents. West had the better of the start and deservingly held a three goal quarter time lead. McGregor was finding good space and was also able to use her feeders, Jess Bell and Carlee Davey, to work the ball into good shooting position. She converted nine from 12 as Teakle and Cram created plenty of turnover ball. It was hard work at the Bulldogs’ offensive end, with Maggie Kipping and Bell denying the Bulldogs feeders easy access to the circle and Gray had to do a mountain of work both outside and inside the circle to create scoring opportunities for East. Her eight from eight in the opening quarter ensured East stayed in touch. It was all the Bulldogs in the second quarter, with Gray again dominant in attack, converting 10 from 11 as East turned that three goal deficit into a four goal lead. Creek and Amy started to get their hands to more balls, while the battle between Tyne Bosko and Carlee Davey also heated up – it was arguably the battle of the day with both players coming up with some crucial plays for their teams. The Roos weren’t done without, though and the third quarter saw Cram and Teakle again take critical interceptions and also limited the scoring opportunities for the Bulldogs who scored nine from 10 for the quarter. Kipping was also playing her part, not only with her willingness to keep the dangerous Sara Smith as far away from the circle’s edge as possible, but also with some strong driving in transition. It was all about Earl in this quarter as the Roos shooter started to find some good space at the post and she netted eight for the quarter as West brought it back to a one goal game heading into the final quarter. East swung Smith into centre for the final quarter and moved Tarsh McCallum to the attacking wing in a bid to free the experienced feeder closer to the circle to use her damaging feeds to give East the edge. McCallum certainly was a key factor in that frenetic final quarter, where East held a three goal advantage for much of the 15 minutes before West made that late surge that just fell short. Amy and Creek were also standouts in this quarter – Amy holding Earl to one goal for the quarter and Creek taking some critical interceptions when West looked to open up the angles using cross court feeds. Teakle and Cram refused to concede, though and earned plenty of ball back for the Roos but in the end time beat the brave Roos and East will now head back to the training court to finetune their game plan ahead of the September 1 preliminary final.
