COVER • BUILDING A LIFELONG PASSION FOR LEGO

Not too many of us have never built anything with LEGO. The time honoured past time was part of most of our childhoods and for many it is a love affair that lasts forever. Emma Robinson is one of those self-confessed LEGO lovers and last year she decided to test the waters in this region and hold a LEGO Fan Event. Empak Homes BrickGambier was a huge success with around 600 people checking out the exhibition and it even saw the formation of a Limestone Coast LEGO Users Group that meets monthly at the Mount Gambier Showgrounds. It has seen Emma organise a second Empak Homes BrickGambier, to be held at the Mount Gambier Showgrounds, and there will be more than just exhibitors, but also interactive displays. “You can’t ask kids, in particular, to

come to a display of LEGO and not touch,” Emma said. That being said, some of the best proponents of the past time from Adelaide and Melbourne will be exhibiting their latest creations at Empak Homes BrickGambier, which will be held on Sunday, September 30, and Monday, October 1, with the event open from 10am to 5pm on both days. Proof that a large number of adults continue to spend time with LEGO, was the fact 90 percent of the 2017 exhibitors were over the age of 18. “I love the way it brings people together, especially generations of families,” Emma said. Last year there was a schools competition but this time round, there will be a building competition, with a 5-7 years age group, as well as 8-11

and 12-14, with all entries needing to be delivered to the showgrounds on Friday, September 28, between 3pm and 6pm. And Emma combines her other passion – working with rescue animals – with Empak Homes BrickGambier, with all profits from the family friendly event going to Wet Noses Animal Rescue, a Mount Gambier based animal foster care and rehoming program. “You really have to see some of the creations to believe them,” Emma said. “I have been fortunate enough to go to quite a few of these events in Melbourne and Adelaide but we wanted to do something right here and make it affordable for people to enjoy everything Lego has to offer.” The event has been made possible by the generous support of naming rights sponsor Empak Homes.

SECOND ROUND OF KINDY ENROLMENTS ON OFFER Second round expressions of interest are now open for families looking to secure their child’s place for Glenelg Shire Council’s 2019 kindergarten programs. Vacancies are currently available for all programs at Dartmoor Children’s Centre, Heywood Kindergarten and Kathleen Millikan Centre, and for pre-kindergarten at Kalbarri Kindergarten. Acting children’s services manager Melanie Bennett said

the first round enrolments had now been implemented with 144 positions filled across the shire “I strongly encourage families to enrol their child as part of the official enrolment process to ensure they secure a place in our popular early learning programs for 2019,” she said. “Due to high demand during the first round of enrolments in July, many of our programs are already at full capacity with waiting lists and final vacancies are expected to fill quickly. Research shows that children

who complete an early learning program are provided with the best possible start to their education. Our shire kindergarten programs are world class, led by a talented team of staff who are passionate about early years education and care. Kindergarten lays the important foundations for later learning and I urge people to ensure they have a position secured.” Families are invited to download and complete the enrolment forms located via the Glenelg Shire website at http://www.glenelg.vic.gov.au/ KinderEnrolment or collect a hard copy enrolment pack from Kathleen Millikan Centre, Portland Child and Family Complex or Heywood Customer Service Centre. For further information regarding the enrolment process and kindergarten vacancies please contact Children’s Services on (03)5522 2211 or email enrolment@glenelg.vic.gov.au. Above - (from left) - Elyssa Primmer, Sienna Blacksell and early childhood educator Rachelle De Haas are hoping to see further enrolments come through for Heywood Kindergarten in 2019

CUTTING RED TAPE TO HELP THE DROUGHT RELIEF EFFORT Trucks will be able to carry more hay and fodder to drought affected farmers because of action being taken last week by the Coalition Government. Longer and higher loads of hay and fodder will now be allowed to travel on state and nationalcontrolled roads. Heavy vehicles up to a maximum height of 4.6 metres and 2.83 metres wide will no longer require a permit to access the existing state-controlled road networks. Previously access was limited for Class 3 vehicles up to 2.6 metres wide and 4.3 metres high. Member for Barker Tony Pasin, who is Chair the Coalition’s Backbench Agriculture Committee, said that this was a practical measure to assist those helping to ease the burden in drought affected areas. “This announcement is a practical step to support the large amounts of fodder from Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania loaded and transported across the country to drought affected areas, particularly to regional NSW,” Mr Pasin said. “Helping our farmers and farming communities remains our number one priority.”

AT A GLANCE

NARACOORTE LUCINDALE COUNCIL EMBRACES GARAGE SALE TRAIL AGAIN With the Garage Sale Trail right around the corner, spring cleaners everywhere have a fun and creative way to pass on their unwanted items sustainably – and make some extra cash as well. Decluttering is the central theme of the Garage Sale Trail, Australia’s biggest weekend of garage sales happening on Saturday, October 20, and Sunday, October 21. The national reuse and community initiative now in its eighth year is fast becoming a national movement of reuse-loving, community minded individuals who come together on one weekend to clear out their pre-loved stuff, find treasure, meet the neighbours and have some fun. Items available locally include automotive parts, gardening items and tools, toys, books, plants, household items, and furniture. Who knows what

treasures you might come across in the Naracoorte Lucindale area. Every garage sale has a unique name and its own sale page that provides clues to who’s involved, what’s on offer and anything else that’s going down. Likewise, shoppers can search for sales, items of interest and make your own Trail of favourite sales to checkout. Shoppers can map out sales they’d like to visit over the weekend for free by creating a Treasure Trail at www. garagesaletrail.com.au Garage Sale Trail started in Bondi Beach in 2010 with the Naracoorte Lucindale Council participating since 2014. Naracoorte Lucindale Council was one of the first Councils to hold a Garage Sale Trail in South Australia. “We’re incredibly proud of the community’s Garage Sale Trail achievements,” Naracoorte Lucindale Council CEO Trevor Smart said. “Thanks to community support, Naracoorte Lucindale has achieved the most Garage Sales held per capita in South Australia in three consecutive years and in 2017 was a Garage Sale Trail Award Winner winning a “Community Champion Award. Council is committed to waste reduction and recycling and the Garage Sale Trail is one initiative that everyone can support either as a buyer or a seller to reduce waste going to landfill. One garage sale on its own doesn’t do much but when the whole country gets involved the impacts are huge,’” comments Garage Sale Trail founder and partner Andrew Valder. Put your sale on the Trail or shop the Trail at www.garagesaletrail.com.au The Naracoorte Lucindale Council is holding two of its own sales. The Naracoorte Public Library is selling pre-loved books at bargain prices at 165 Smith Street, Naracoorte between 8.30am to 12 noon. Council’s Naracoorte Depot has some great items for sale for the ‘do it yourself people’ including, a jumping jack, a concrete cutter, a whipper snipper, and blower vac. The Naracoorte Depot is also selling office furniture, automotive parts, garden equipment, tools, collectables, and more. The Depot sale is at 20 Wrights Road, Naracoorte from 9am to 12noon on Saturday. More information is available at www. garagesaletrail.com.au Garage Sale

YOUNG LEADERS GRADUATE The Western Bulldogs Leadership Project welcomed 15 new graduates to the Glenelg Shire alumni last week, celebrating the region’s fifth graduating

class to the program focused on supporting young emerging leaders. The popular program inducted teenagers from Narrawong, Portland,

Heywood, Drumborg, Dartmoor, Casterton and Clovers Flat and culminated with an official reflection of the participants’ achievements over the past six months, including individual Community Leadership Projects. This year participants tackled issues such as positive mental health messaging, youth drug use, breast and testicular cancer, family violence, positive self-image and youth sports participation, aiming to create change and make a positive influence. Western Bulldogs Leadership Project graduate Maisie Sheahan said the project had been ‘life changing’. “Over the past six months we have come together as what was a group of strangers to become one united team. I’ve developed friendships that will last a lifetime and I’ve developed leadership skills I never knew I had,” she said. Glenelg Shire Council Mayor Cr Anita Rank said this year’s cohort was particularly notable, with equal representation in terms of gender equity. “This year’s group saw an equal balance of both male and female participants, a fantastic positive

message for these emerging leaders to impart upon the next generation and reinforces council’s ongoing commitment to gender equity,” she said. “Furthermore, all corners of the shire were represented in the program, with young leaders hailing from our smaller townships such as Narrawong, Dartmoor, Drumborg and Clovers Flat. On behalf of council, I am incredibly proud of what this group has achieved in such a short amount of time. Throughout the six month mentorship program participants have learnt

important leadership skills, heard from respected leaders and have organised events and programs to inspire change in our community. I encourage every graduate to continue engaging with our local community, as we look to them as the next generation of local leaders.” The Western Bulldogs Leadership Project is delivered by the Western Bulldogs Football Club Community Foundation in partnership with the Glenelg Shire Council.

AGED CARE EXPO RETURNS Following last year’s success, Wattle Range Council will again facilitate a second Aged Care Expo as part of its celebration of Seniors Month. The Aged Care Expo provides a unique opportunity for people of all ages to explore the range of services and health care assistance available to seniors in the region. They can become better informed on the wide range of assistance available in our community, with opportunities to meet face to face with industry representatives to answer questions either for themselves or an elder member of their family. The Expo, which will be held on October 18, from 10am to 2pm, at the Civic & Arts Centre, also provides an excellent opportunity to health care workers, wishing to update their skills, knowledge and understanding of aged care services. Council of the Ageing (COTA) is providing a 45 minute information session, at 1 pm on ’Moving Right Along - Older Drivers and Safer Vehicles‘. Health Care Service providers in the region wishing to be part of this Expo are invited to contact Catarina Santos, Environmental Health Officer on (08)8733 0900 or by email on catarina.santos@wattlerange.sa.gov. au There is no charge for stall holders.

AT A GLANCE ICONIC PIECE OF HISTORY RETURNED TO PORTLAND After more than 130 years, a decorated cultural artefact linked to one of Portland’s heritage buildings has returned home to the Glenelg Shire.The ceremonial trowel used to lay the foundation stone of the Portland Masonic Lodge (now the home of personal training studio Brenda’s Functional Fitness) in 1876 has been donated to the shire’s Cultural Collection. Glenelg Shire cultural collection officer Trevor Smith said the patient wait was well worth the historical reward. “After more than a century it is certainly exciting to officially welcome the ceremonial trowel back to Portland and to the Cultural Collection,” he said. “The trowel, which marks a significant period of cultural and industrial development in Portland’s history, was originally presented to Portland bank manager Joseph Lee Archer. Archer eventually left Portland, taking the trowel with him. Since then the trowel has moved across the country with the Archer family, travelling through Victoria, Western Australia and eventually South Australia, where it has been in the possession of Archer’s grand grand-nephew Bob Archer in Goolwa. After all these years, Bob has kindly returned the trowel back its original home and donated it to the collection, allowing an important piece of Portland’s history to be safely kept and viewed for generations to come.” The trowel will be included in future displays of the Cultural Collection at Portland’s History House. The Glenelg Shire Cultural Collection is comprised of more than 10,000 important cultural items including paintings, photographs and historic objects. Following a valuation undertaken earlier this year, the collection is currently worth more than $6.5 million. For further information on the Cultural Collection, including current exhibitions, please visit www.glenelg. vic.gov.au/Cultural_Collection.

BOOST FOR LOCAL PROJECTS The South East Natural Resources Management Board has been announced as one of 47 organisations selected through an open tender process to deliver the Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitator project for 2018-2023. The project will build on existing working relationships with the region’s agricultural service providers to directly engage farmers in sustainable land management practices through education, information sharing, trial delivery and assisting access to grant funding. South East NRM Board presiding member Fiona Rasheed said this is a great opportunity for the region’s landholders to continue working towards managing natural resources and improving agricultural production. “The South East region covers 28,000 square kilometres of land and supports diverse industries including livestock, cropping, horticulture, viticulture, dairy, fishing and plantation forestry,” Ms Rasheed said. “Through the Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitator, we are looking to sustain those industries by working in partnership with land managers, industry groups and researchers to improve the management of the region’s highly productive land and resources such as water and soil.” Key focus areas include improving soil health on farms, exploring precision technology, enhancing water management and building local capacity to adopt new approaches. Louise Densley has been appointed to the role. She is based at the Natural Resources Centre in Keith and will be a central contact point for industry and community groups. A stakeholder workshop has been held as the first step in collecting direct input from industry and community groups regarding sustainable land management issues and priorities to be addressed in the region. The Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitator is funded by the Australian Government as part of its $450 million Regional Land Partnerships program, and is an important second phase of the $1 billion National Landcare Program. For more information on the Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitator contact Louise Densley on 0437 030 765 or louise.densley@sa.gov.au Above - Newly appointed Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitator Louise Densley is based in Keith.

Dairy-free caramel slice 1 cup plain flour 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup desiccated coconut 125g Nuttelex spread, melted 200g dark compound chocolate, chopped (see notes) 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

CARAMEL FILLING 2 x 400ml cans coconut milk 1 cup caster sugar 1/4 cup brown sugar 50g Nuttelex spread

Method Preheat oven to 180/160 fan-forced. Grease a 3cm-deep, 18cm x 28cm slice pan. Line base and sides with baking paper, extending paper 2cm above edges of pan. Place flour, sugar, coconut and Nuttelex in a bowl. Stir to combine. Press mixture into base of prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until light golden. Set aside to cool. Meanwhile, make caramel filling: Place coconut milk and caster sugar in a large, heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring often, until mixture comes to a simmer. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring often, for 40 minutes or until mixture thickens and coats the back of a wooden spoon (the mixture should resemble thick custard at this stage). Remove from heat. Add brown sugar and Nuttelex to caramel mixture. Place over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring constantly to prevent mixture sticking to bottom of pan, for at least 8 minutes or until mixture is thick and starts to come away from side of pan (mixture needs to be very thick at this stage in order for the slice to set (see notes). Working quickly, pour over base in pan. Smooth top. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.

INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL COMES TO MOUNT GAMBIER The Riddoch Art Gallery will host the inaugural International Limestone Coast Video Art Festival in Mount Gambier from September 29 to October 21 to showcase innovative works created by 35 local, Australian and international video artists. “We are excited to be hosting a number of international artists during the festival who will be presenting their practice and work during the symposium. It is a rare opportunity to hear from established artists from around the world in our own backyard,” Riddoch Art Gallery director Dr Melentie Pandilovski said. Based on the theme ‘The Lived Body’ the festival focuses on art projects that reveal the human relationship with technology and nature, demonstrating the complexity of contemporary life and how technology is used to respond to challenges in the 21st century. “The program is divided between an open call selection and a curated selection and includes an exhibition, symposium, screenings, workshops & VJ performance that will stimulate, reveal, and surprise,” Dr Pandilovski said. “We also believe that it will contribute to the understanding of the importance of media culture globally, and video as the most ubiquitous offshoot of media culture today.” Opening night will be held on Friday, September 28, at 6pm with the announcement of the $3000 open call entrant prize and a special performance by VJ Sustenance. “Twenty works from 12 countries were selected from more than 100 works submitted to the open call,” Dr Pandilovski said. “The projects test the limits of video art and include ideas around dialectics of the machine, remix culture, children and resistance, meditation on absence/presence and much more. The festival selection panel is especially pleased to announce that the video artwork Identity by Caroline Hammat from Millicent will be included in the exhibition, as well as the screening of video works produced by high school students in Mount Gambier.” On Saturday, September 29, the symposium ‘Video-Body in the New Millennium’ will explore cross issues of art, culture and new technology between 1pm and 3pm at the Main Corner Dress Circle. People interested in learning the basic concepts involved in creating interactive content are encouraged to attend a two day workshop ‘Introduction to Virtual Reality Authoring using Unreal Engine’ with Vladimir Todorovic to be held on Saturday and Sunday, 29 & 30 September between 11am and 1pm on Kings Floor at the Main Corner. Check out the full program at the gallery’s website.

MOUNT GAMBIER HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT TOPS THE STATE Mount Gambier High School Year 12 student Shanna-Lee Locker has shown what hard work, determination and commitment to furthering her future employment opportunities looks like by winning the ‘School-based Apprentice of the Year’ award at the recent SA Training Awards held in Adelaide earlier this month. After completing a Certificate II - Salon Assistant last year, Shanna-Lee gained part-time employment at James Gray Salon followed by an offer to undertake a school based apprenticeship, studying Certificate III in Hairdressing through Tafe SA. Early this year Shanna-Lee was nominated for the ‘School-based Apprentice of the Year’ award through the South East Secondary Schools Alliance and was successful in this category on the night. After winning the South East ‘School-based Apprentice of the Year’ award she was nominated for the SA Training Awards and made it to the shortlist. After completing an interview with the judging panel she received notification that she was one of four finalists in her category from students across the state. “At the beginning of this year I would’ve never expected to have an opportunity to represent the South East at an event such as this, let alone win this award,” Shanna-Lee said. She will now have the opportunity to represent South Australia at the 2018 Australian Training Awards to be held in Sydney on November 15. “I am very excited to be representing the South East and South Australia at the Australian Training Awards,” Shanna-Lee said. Understandably her parents, Tonia and Lee Locker were extremely proud of their daughter’s achievements. “We are very proud of Shanna-Lee’s commitment and maturity in taking on a Schoolbased Apprenticeship as well as her Year 12 studies,” they said. “With focus and commitment great rewards can be achieved.” Mount Gambier High School senior school assistant principla Samantha Brown was thrilled to see Shann-Lee putting the school on the map. “Not only is Shanna-Lee a wonderful student ambassador for Mount Gambier High School, but for apprentices in the State,” Ms Brown said. “Her ability to balance Tafe and Year 12 studies with her apprenticeship is exceptional. We wish her all the best for the Australian Training Awards in Sydney.” Mount Gambier High School Year 12 student Mitchell Potter was also shortlisted in the ‘Vocational Student of the Year’ category.

ANNIVERSARY TOUR COMES TO MOUNT GAMBIER The Waifs have always had an affectionate, close relationship with fans in regional Australia. Late last year, during their 25th Anniversary Ironbark tour, they made a promise to return to those regional areas that missed out. It’s a promise they have kept and they will be performing at Mount Gambier’s Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre on October 6.

AT A GLANCE

NEW LOOK PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPETITION Residents in Barker are strongly encouraged to nominate mobile phone black spot locations in their area to help inform the rollout of the next round of the Coalition’s $220 million Mobile Black Spot Program. Minister for Regional Services, Senator Bridget McKenzie, has invited Federal Members of Parliament and local councils to make submissions on behalf of their constituents to the national mobile black spot database. Federal Member for Barker Tony Pasin said the database is open for four weeks and called for all residents to contact either of his offices to nominate any mobile black spot areas. “I strongly encourage residents in Barker to contact my office as soon as possible to nominate any mobile phone black spots in our community,” Mr Pasin said. “This presents a real opportunity for Barker residents to have their say on problem mobile black spots and encourage mobile operators to invest in our area through the program.

lifestyle1.net | 28

The nominations will support round 4 of the program which will look to provide new or improved mobile coverage in areas where there are clear economic and social benefits. Round 4 will also look to target medical, educational and emergency services facilities, as well as along key transport routes and in towns that experience seasonal demand due to tourism.” The Coalition will invest $25 million to deliver round 4 of the program and will soon call for applications from carriers to be selected through a competitive process. The Coalition is also calling for nominations from state and territory governments. “Improving mobile coverage for residents of Barker is a big priority for me,” Mr Pasin said. “I understand that reliable and effective mobile communications is a key driver of the enormous contribution that our regions make to Australia’s economic growth.” For more information on the program visit: www.communications.gov.au/ mbsp

CLEANING UP IN WATTLE RANGE Following feedback from the local community, Wattle Range Council will be actively targeting areas of unsightliness in Wattle Range townships. Throughout 2018, council has facilitated 13 town planning days in townships across the region. Town Plans have been developed by each of these communities, identifying the individual needs and vision for their towns for the next 10 years. One of the common themes to come out of these Town Plan meetings was the need to tackle the issue of unsightly properties, with communities wanting to improve the presentation of their townships, whilst also reducing associated risks from bushfire and public health. Council’s chief executive officer Ben Gower said that though the council will be at the forefront in dealing with these issues, it is being driven by the local community who have expressed their concerns and council has listened. “Though it can be a sensitive issue, it is really positive to see local communities wanting to improve their townships,” he said. “The ideas that came from the town planning meetings were very positive and council will continue to explore those ideas and work with the community on implementing them. But in the short term, a big difference can be made by ensuring people are looking after their properties to the best of their ability. It’s also really important that people seek Council approval prior to building or placing a structure on their property, and if they are unsure they should speak to Council’s planning and development team.” Director development services Steve Chapple said it was evident from the meetings that residents were getting frustrated with the constant disregard for their towns by a small group of people. “Generally, people have a lot of pride in the presentation of their towns. Many of the activities like unsightly or insanitary property raised during the Town Plan meetings can be characterised as being a local nuisance,” he said. New legislation has given councils across South Australia more powers to deal specifically with unsightly properties. The Local Nuisance and Litter Control Act 2016 came into effect during 2017 and now makes it an offence to have an unsightly or insanitary property or to have a negative impact (dust, noise, odour, smoke) on the amenity of an area. Over coming months, council will be proactively targeting properties that are unsightly, insanitary or cause a nuisance as defined in the Act. Council will also be targeting illegal development such as non-approved sheds and shipping containers, structures, wrecked cars and non-complying land uses such as people conducting backyard car wrecking enterprises.


END OF AN ERA For the Gubbins family at Chatsworth, quoting the lyrics from the Travelling Wilburys’ song, “We’re going to the end of the line”, came to fruition earlier this month. After staging the largest ever Angus dispersal sale of registered females in March last year, this ‘Last Hoorah’ bull sale of Spring 2016 drop Angus bulls was the final stage of their dispersal sale process. Mark and Anna Gubbins and their sons Max and Ben offered 62 Angus bulls, selling 61 to a top of $13,000 and averaging a very solid $6908. In welcoming the large crowd that included 46 registered bidders from Victoria and South Australia, Max Gubbins said it was both a sad day and an exciting day as they headed into a new commercial chapter. “We are extremely grateful to all our clients who have kept coming back, and we just couldn’t be prouder of the quality we are presenting today in this our last sale,” he said. Over 42 years of Coolana sales through three generations of the Gubbins family, coincidentally there were 62 bulls offered through the auction ring, which is the same number as bull sales held over that time. Elders auctioneer Ross Milne, who has stood over a good many of them after being given a start many years ago by Richard Cooper, described this

final draft as one of Coolana’s best ever. “You don’t get to hold that number of sales over that number of years unless the breeding program is really up to scratch,” Ross said. “It is testament to the Gubbins family and their program that clients have stuck with Coolana right to the end. This is not always the case when studs enter the dispersal stage; as buyers often start looking elsewhere. While there is some sadness at the closing of the Coolana seedstock program, another chapter opens up.” In strong bidding, there were two bulls that made the $13,000 top price, while nine sold for $10,000 or better. The first equal sale topper was at lot 20, Coolana Docklands M682, selling to long-term top end and volume buyers, the Rowe family, Princess Royal Station, Burra, SA. Big, long and balanced with a top skin and EMA muscling of +7.2, this 920kg son of Carabar Docklands D62 boasted Breedplan growth figures of +52 for 200 day weight up to +127 for 600 day weight. This was one of four bulls Jack Rowe, accompanied by livestock manager Luke Bavistock, purchased at a $7500 average. Five lots later, Andrew Stoney, Ellingerin Pastoral Co, Inverleigh and buying through HF Richardson & Co’s Will Richardson, Geelong, also paid $13,000 to secure Coolana Conversion M185, sired by Silveiros Conversion

8064. With growth figures from +50 to +111 and an EMA of +6.9 it was overall balance of both phenotype and genotype that made this bull extra special. Andrew later added another for $8000, his two purchases averaging $10,500. Having the biggest impact on the sale by far was Susie Clarke and her manager Graeme Steff, Linlithgow Plains, Devon Park, Dunkeld. They went to $10,000 once and averaged $5867 in purchasing 15 bulls. This followed on from their 11 bull total at the Spring sale last September. They opened their buying on the first bull offered at $6000, with their $10,000 top purchase being Coolana Big Sky M270 at lot 24, sired by Musgrave Big Sky. Their purchases also included Coolana Te Mania 11 465 M119 for $8000, the bull with the highest IMF EBV at 3.7%. Another of the long term Coolana supporters and regular top end purchasers who made a significant impact were David and Robyn Roach, Kilkenny Pastoral Co, Hawkesdale. David successfully bid to $10,000 twice and averaged $7571 for seven select bulls. Their two top priced purchases were for Coolana Big Sky M158, another Musgrave Big Sky son, and Coolana Franklin M115 by Wattletop Franklin G188. Courtesy of sale sponsor Wayne Croft, post-sale presentations of product were made to Linlithgow and Kilkenny in recognition of their great support of the Coolana program and especially in this last sale. Another regular top end buyer, Steve McLeod, Macarthur got in early and had the two bulls he wanted

signed off by lot 11, paying to $11,000 and averaging $10,000. It was another Wattletop Franklin G188 son, Coolana M831, boasting growth figures from +61 to +139 that was his top purchase. Perry Gunner and Peter Colliver, Stoney Point Angus, Meningie, SA were attracted to the second bull offered, Coolana Black Pearl M128 and bid to $12,000 to purchase it. This bull was beautifully balanced and supported by a great set of Breedplan figures. It was sired by Sydgen Black Pearl 2006 that has bred so well for Coolana. His progeny includes a $52,000 record for the Banquet stud that was purchased in utero by Banquet from the Coolana mated female sale in May 2015. Yera Estate, Leslie Manor, via Camperdown and W & H Erwin, Mortlake both went to $10,000 in securing their select single bull purchases. Rounding out the more prominent buyers was the Baillieu family’s Western District Pastoral Co. Bidding on bulls that had Breedplan figures to match their specific needs, they twice went to $9000 in purchasing three bulls at an $8000 average for their Broadlands property at Lucindale, in SA. Gordon Dickenson, Nareen Station, Coleraine also purchased three bulls to $8000 and at a $7000 average. These will go to Boyong, their Mt Benson property in South Australia. The Gubbins family’s XSimm Black Simmental bulls offered at previous spring sales are being sold privately, along with a few more private selection Angus bulls. Thirteen of the latter were sold pre-sale. Elders Mortlake’s manager, Hayden

Lanyon who guided the Gubbins family through their huge dispersal process said the result was testament to the Gubbins family and their program in that buyers were prepared to back them to the end. In a heartfelt and emotional post sale speech, Mark Gubbins paid tribute to all the marvellous people who had supported them over the journey that saw Coolana grow from selling a very small handful of bulls to more than 350 a year. His thanks included the Elders agents in Victoria and Spence Dix & Co agents in South Australia.

In 2010, thousands of feet in the air above Singapore, the 469 passengers aboard QF32 found themselves in a crisis that no-one could have anticipated when the A380 in which they were flying suffered a catastrophic explosion. Captain Richard de Crespigny and his crew confronted extraordinary

challenges over the next four hours, with only three partially working engines and a potentially explosive plane facing an imminent emergency landing. Even experienced crash investigators later revealed they thought recovery in such circumstances was impossible. Yet in the end all aboard walked away safely. The incident brought into play Richard de Crespigny’s considerable skills involving teamwork, leadership, crisis management and problem solving and put many years of highly-skilled training into practice. A combination of these factors now provide the theme of his corporate presentations that have seen him address some of the world’s largest and most important industry

and corporate groups. Richard de Crespigny has developed into one of Australia’s most soughtafter corporate speakers. His clientele profile comes with testimonials form powerhouse companies such as ANZ Bank, Australian Federal Police and Shell Australia. The Mount Gambier Library is thrilled to be hosting an event with Richard De Crespigny on Tuesday, October 9, at 7pm, at City Hall, Main Corner Complex. Richard will present a talk on resilience which is the topic of his latest book “FLY”. Richard will take participants on a journey through the hearts and minds of resilient leaders, revealing what it takes to overcome your greatest challenges in life and lifestyle1.net | 29

work. “FLY! Is a book for those who want to learn how to master their minds, build their resilience and perform superbly in all circumstances,” Captain De Crespigny said. “My aim is to show you how to develop your resilience and sharpen your skills to enable you to deal with whatever life throws your way.” Tickets for the event are $6 and available from the library, via credit card payment or over the phone on (08)8721 2540. “Richard de Crespigny is currently one of the most sought after celebrity speakers on resilience, leadership, teamwork and decision making,” said team leader library programs Kristi Leamey. “We would expect this event

to sell out fast so encourage businesses and individuals to secure their seats as soon as possible.”


AT A GLANCE

TOURING EXHIBITION UNCOVERS SHIPWRECK MYSTERIES Australia’s coast is the final resting place of over 11,000 shipwrecks – roughly one wreck for every three kilometres of coastline. And South Australia’s Admella and Degei are two of 14 wrecks whose stories will feature in a nationally touring panel exhibition Submerged – Stories of Australia’s Shipwrecks uncovering Australia’s rich shipwreck history. Submerged is presented by the Australian National Maritime Museum and the Australian Maritime Museums Council and is the result of a national project with workshops held across the country to develop the exhibition and to source shipwreck stories. 68 shipwreck stories were nominated by 46 maritime museums and heritage institutions from around Australia with 14 of the most compelling stories selected to feature in the exhibition. SS Admella was a passenger steamship named after its trading circuit – Adelaide, Melbourne and Launceston.

It struck a submerged reef off Cape Banks, South Australia in 1859. 89 of the 113 passengers and crew on board lost their lives. Fijian built trawler Degei was based in Port Lincoln and was heading out of Boston Bay when it struck rocks on Donington Reef, SA in 1974. The exhibition also features wrecks of merchant vessels, steamers, schooners, whalers and a submarine. The oldest wreck featured is WA’s Batavia. Its 1629 loss on Beacon Island, and subsequent mutiny, is one of the most dramatic events in Dutch and Australian history. Other wrecks include Sanyo Maru, a Japanese motor vessel lost in 1937 in Boucaut Bay NT, British merchant ship Sydney Cove lost in 1797 off Preservation Island, Tasmania and the paddle steamer Wagga Wagga which sank at Narrandera, NSW in 1913. The exhibition also features one shipwreck from outside Australia – Australia’s second submarine HMAS AE2 which was lost in 1915 during the First World War in the Sea of Marmara,

DEAL SHOULD INJECT NEW LIFE INTO LOCAL ECONOMY A landmark trade agreement between Australia and Indonesia will provide local producers with greater market access and opportunities within the region. Member for Barker Tony Pasin said this was another major boost for the local economy. “This agreement will open up new pathways and make Australian businesses more competitive within the Indonesian market and with other trading partners in the region,” Mr Pasin said. “It will allow producers to take advantage of Indonesia’s growing economy particularly in our agricultural

industries. This will not only help local businesses to grow into overseas markets, but with business growth also comes the creation of more local job opportunities.” Mr Pasin said the deal would see benefits for many of Barker’s agricultural sectors including: • Cattle – Duty free access from 575,000 cattle in one year, growing 4% p.a. to 700,000 by year 6 • Frozen beef and sheep meat – Tariff cut to 2.5% immediately and again to 0% in 5 years • Feed grains – duty free access for 500,000 tonnes in one year, volume 5% p.a

Turkey. Australian National Maritime Museum director Kevin Sumption said as an island nation, shipwrecks are a very important part of Australia’s rich maritime heritage. “The Australian National Maritime Museum is delighted to be partnering with the Australian Maritime Museums Council to unlock these fascinating stories and remember everyone who lost their lives on our coast,” he said. Submerged – Stories of Australia’s Shipwrecks is on a two year national tour across regional Australia. All 68 submitted shipwreck stories are available now on the AMMC website in a digital archive at www. maritimemuseumsaustralia.com The exhibition is assisted by the Australian Government Visions of Australia program. Submerged – Stories of Australia’s Shipwrecks is on display at Port MacDonnell Maritime Museum until November 20. Entry to the exhibition is free.

• Dairy – Immediate or progressive tariff elimination of remaining tariffs on dairy lines • Citrus – Progressive tariff elimination for mandarins; duty-free access for oranges, lemons • Vegetables – Progressive elimination of tariff on carrots; reduced tariff for potatoes In addition to tariff reductions the deal includes guaranteed automatic issue of import permits for products such as live cattle, frozen beef, sheep meat, feed grains, mandarins, oranges, lemons, carrots, potatoes. This deal is a big win for our producers and exporters. “This landmark agreement forms part of the Coalition Government’s ambitious trade agenda that aims to support business to grow and create more jobs for Australians,” Mr Pasin said.


COLLECTED STUPIDITY - STRAWBERRY BERET… By ROBBIE TANSEL Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of weeks, you’d have heard about the recent drama involving sewing needles being found in fresh strawberries. Clearly the big question here is, do people actually sew anymore? Surely no one actually sews anything do they? Jump on e-bay and you can grab something from China, in whatever colour you want. Easy peasy. If you don’t want to talk about the sewing thing, I guess we can talk about the strawberry thing. I’ve always

thought fruit wasn’t that safe. Let’s just remember, that fruit and vegetables are plants. You are eating a plant when you eat fruit and veg. Do you eat grass? Gum nuts? Pine trees? No, because they’re plants. Who eats plants? Animals. Cows. Sheep. Vegetarians. Exactly. Even before this strawberry needle thing, I thought fruit and vegetables were dangerous. Let’s be honest, you could poke your eye out with a banana. Watermelons are particularly dangerous. It would be easy to damage your back lifting one. Apart from that, if you drop one from high enough, you could kill someone. If you swallow the seed of an apple, you could grow an apple tree in your

belly. That can’t be good for you. That’s what Mum told me anyway. Pears aren’t good for your mental health. Every time I eat one, I spend the next three hours stewing over why they’re called pears, but there is only one of them. Carrots are particularly dangerous. Mum has told me that while she’s in prison, she always keeps one hidden in her prison overalls. Apparently the trick is to rub them against an abrasive surface to sharpen them to a deadly point. She’s got a nasty side, my mum. Cherries have a stone in the middle that you can choke on. Not as exciting as the other things, but dangerous. Sorry. You can’t expect everything I come up with to be comedy gold. Some of this is just facts. Potatoes tend to be cut into chips, deep fried and then covered in salt leading to high cholesterol and eventually heart disease and death. Just saying. They’re dangerous. Mmmmm.

FREE WIFI NETWORK LAUNCHED LAST WEEK IN SOUTHERN GRAMPIANS SHIRE Southern Grampians Shire Council in partnership with the Federal Government and the Smart Cities and Suburbs grant officially launched ‘connectGH’, the Shire’s free public WiFi network last week at Melville Oval. The local community and visitors will now have access to free internet via their smart phones, tablets and laptops in the Hamilton CBD, as well as central locations in each surrounding township. Southern Grampians Shire Council Mayor Mary-Ann Brown said the network would enhance connectivity options for our community and visitors, providing a boost to the region and the digital economy. “This is an incredible opportunity for the shire,” Mayor Brown said. “By facilitating a free public WiFi network we are investing in key infrastructure towards Council’s commitment to building a strong local digital ecosystem. Free public WiFi provides a platform to encourage innovative technologies, creating infinite opportunities in the digital economy, which otherwise would not be possible. This network also has the capacity to create a more digitally connected community, providing internet connectivity to lifestyle1.net | 31

But so delicious. Again, not funny, just a fact. More people die each year from coconuts falling out of a tree than eating Bounties. Maybe someone should hide Bounties in strawberries. Noone eats Bounties, do they? While we’re talking about it, shouldn’t we maybe get rid of Bounties and bring back Polly Waffles. I know the fruit and vegetable propaganda machine have been pretty good at getting the word out that they’re somehow good for our health, but I think I’ve produced pretty overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Let me present one more argument. Many of you would have been taught the food pyramid. At school we were all taught that we have to eat lots of fruit and veg as it is down low on the pyramid. They had it all wrong though. If you take away the fruit and vegetable layer of the pyramid, down the bottom,

areas of the community that may have not had this opportunity in the past. ConnectGH will assist in improving digital engagement between residents and enable the Shire to leverage further digital solutions across the region into the future.” The WiFi will be available initially in the Hamilton CBD throughout Gray, Brown and Thompson Streets, as well as central locations in Balmoral, Branxholme, Byaduk, Cavendish, Coleraine, Dunkeld, Glenthompson, Penshurst and Tarrington. Residents and visitors can access the new free network by selecting the WiFi option on their smartphone or tablet and choosing ‘connectGH – Free’. Details on the network can be found by visiting www.connectgh.com.au

you still have a pyramid. But the moment you take away the top layer, the fats and sugars, aka the good stuff, you no longer have a pyramid. You tell me what layer is the most important to that particular polyhedra continuing to be classified as a pyramid. Sorry to baffle you with complex mathematical language there. I think strawberry manufacturers are actually looking at this in the wrong way. They need to see this as a marketing opportunity. With every strawberry, you now have the opportunity to win a free needle. It’s like the toy in the Kinder Surprise egg. They’ve taken a perfectly boring strawberry and value added to it. If you work in the fruit and veg industry and have a problem with anything I’ve said…well to be honest, you just need to be careful. Haven’t you been paying attention? Fruit and veg are dangerous. You can’t afford to let down your guard and read this rubbish. You could die. Email me at robbietansel@gmail.com if you’d like me to suggest some safety tips. IMPORTANT INNOVATION FOR MOTORBIKE RIDERS In a new era for motorcycle safety, a world-first rating system for motorcycle clothing has been launched in Australia. The Motorcycle Clothing Assessment Program (MotoCAP) will empower motorcyclists with more information when they are making choices about the clothing they wear when riding. The Motor Accident Commission (MAC) and the Lifetime Support Authority (LSA) have joined with road safety organisations around Australia and New Zealand to establish the rating program. MAC Road Safety communications manager Matt Hanton said that last year 540 motorcyclists were injured on South Australian roads – of those 24 motorcyclists lost their lives and 114 were seriously injured. “Motorcycle and scooter riders are susceptible to significant injury when involved in a crash and we know that wearing the right gear when riding, including jackets, trousers, gloves and footwear, can reduce the risk and severity of crash-related injuries,” Mr Hanton said. “The Australian community has become very familiar with the ANCAP star rating for vehicle safety. It is the intention that MotoCAP will work in a similar way, providing clear safety information that supports riders to make informed purchasing decisions.” MotoCAP provides information on a range of motorcycle jackets, pants and gloves available in Australia. It will give clothing two separate scientifically-based star ratings – one for protection and one for comfort. For more information on MotoCAP ratings and the scheme visit www.motocap.com.au

Eleven GHS students recently showed three steers in this year’s Royal Adelaide Show led steer competitions with some strong results. The Grant High School contingent was supervised by teacher Scott Cram, Aeron Turner and Vicki Muller. Steers were weighed and scanned before being led in the Grand Parade along with approximately 180 steers from other schools. The judging for the Thomas Foods International (TFI) Trophy for the best three steers in each breed was conducted directly after the parade and the school’s Murray Grey steer, donated by Craig and Jacinta Grant, from Casterton, was selected in the top three Murray Grey steers out of a field of around 40 Murray Grey Steers to represent the breed. The school’s Angus steer, donated by the Gletz Family “Black Angus” Stud, at Avenue Range, got down to the final 10 out of approximately 60 steers. Keyarnah Smith and Lorraine Verwey represented the school in the Handle Competition with Lorraine being successful in winning Reserve Champion Experience Handler section out of approximately 40 students from other South Australian schools.

The steers also competed in their weight classes with the Murray Grey steer winning first place for that class. The school’s show campiagn was supported by Nenad and Donna Podobnik; She’s Apples, Baker’s Delight and Swallow Drive Meat. lifestyle1.net | 32

Young people of Portland had the opportunity to meet and connect with older adults in the community through three intergenerational projects called Generations UNITED. The concept, developed by United Way Glenelg and funded through their Lewis Court Fund, partnered with Glenelg Southern Grampian Local Learning Employment Network to enable both young and older people to come together and identify opportunities that would complement the day-to day quality of life of aged care residents. Students from Bayview College, Heywood & District Secondary College and Portland Secondary College, through the Future Leaders of Industry program, have been linking with the residents of three local aged care facilities; Bupa, Seaview House and Heywood Rural Health for the past four months. United Way Glenelg executive officer Nicole Car, said the students were able to facilitate an appropriate project by listening to the residents over morning teas. “There has been opportunity for Future Leader student’s to learn more about the career pathways of yesteryear, something that is significantly different to today," said Mrs Carr. “Making these intergenerational connections — linking elders and young people in a variety of ways, has the benefit of reducing isolation, enhancing a sense of belonging of community and civic responsibility for both groups.” Ollie Marshall, Zane Barker, Sidney Dent, Taylah Purcell, Jack Hernan and Laura Dyson visited Seaview House. It was determined that residents have difficulty hearing staff at their weekly meetings. The solution was to purchase two P.A systems, one being light weight and portable attaching to the waist of the speaker and the other being stationary and larger with two wireless microphones. Taylah Purcell said the project meant going out of her comfort zone. “I’ve never done anything like this before. It was great to meet the residents and spend some time listening to their stories,” concluded Taylah. Kobey Sheedy, Sam Hampshire, Sasha Wright, Taylah Falconer, Reggina Blurton and Dillon Duncan visiting Bupa Portland were faced with the dilemma of too many project ideas, but again, hearing was identified as a major problem. Many of the residents enjoy watching old classic movies but the smaller screens made it difficult to see, so a portable data projector, speakers and a pull up screen was purchased. Michael Peters, Taylah Nelson, Ali Mitchell headed to Heywood Rural Health where restocking the existing green house was deemed as a priority. This will enable the residents to partake in the recreational and nature based activity of gardening thus reducing social isolation amongst the residents. Ali Mitchell said being a part of the community project provided a proper understanding of what is needed to run an efficient project. "It’s not always a one way street when it comes to doing something good for the community," she said. “I learnt to consider all options to create the best of both worlds, using our group’s vision along with the resident’s visions at the nursing home. I had the chance to get to know the residents; this was definitely my highlight as they had so much to share with us all. It is a very fulfilling experience in my eyes to donate some time and money to those who appreciate it the most.” Future Leaders of Industry coordinator Lilja Radley said this year’s Future Leaders students have developed many skills throughout the year. “With the support of United Way Glenelg they have now developed their community leadership skills and supported our Aged Care facilities and their residents in the delivery of these community projects,” she said.

SPORT CENTRALS CLAIM HISTORIC DOUBLE

The South East Women’s Football Association Grand Final was played on September 15 at Blue Lake Sports Park with last year’s champions United Women’s Soccer Club taking on the undefeated Gambier Centrals Football Club in the seniors, whie in the Under 15s it was the Pink Ribbon Cup holders Apollo City taking on Gambier Centrals, who went through the premiership season undefeated. The day commenced at 12noon in difficult weather conditions and saw Centrals kicking toward the Dohle Road end with a slight breeze. Centrals welcomed back Sheridan Sakkers and captain Alexis Lunnay who returned to the starting line-up after suffering an ankle injury. The game started at a cracking pace with the Centrals forwards pushing the hard to create chances and the Apollo City keeper Angela McDonough called into action several times in the first 10 minutes. For Apollo City, star striker Evany Rex was deployed as a left back to mark Kate Seaton and Adele Wilkinson working hard in the midfield. The best chance for Apollo came around the 15 minute mark when Apollo received a free kick on the edge of the box and Wilkinson put it over the crossbar. As the half grew and the pressure began to mount on the Apollo City goal mouth it was Olivia Gwylim that broke the deadlock after receiving the ball with her back to goal. The young

striker then turned and shot hard into the left hand corner past the outstretched arm of McDonough to give Centrals the narrow lead at half time. The break saw coaches clarify their expectations and issue instructions. Centrals reverted back to their starting line up and moved Seaton back to the right with Rex still in her tagging role. Wilkinson was in fine form running hard and trying to fine the Jolley sisters up front. With the game in the balance and end to end football entertaining the crowd it was Sheridan Sakkers that double the advantage for the Lions after she back-healed the winner after some confusion in the box after a Seaton corner. The final minutes saw Rex moved further up the park, however time soon ran out enabling Gambier Centrals to claim their first historic premiership in only their second year in the association. The senior game commenced at 2.30pm with the players making their way on to Pitch One at Blue Sports Park after a stirring rendition of the National Anthem by Sophie Charlton. The rematch of last year’s grand final provided the opportunity for the associations two strongest teams to go head to head again on the biggest stage. Last year it was United that claimed the biggest prize defeating Centrals in the grand final and it was United again who took the silverware at the Pink Ribbon Cup earlier in the year.

However, over the course of the premiership it is Centrals who are the undeniable champions going into the final undefeated in the premiership in 2018 and 2017. Centrals went into the clash as slight favourites after defeating United in the previous three encounters, 2 -1 earlier in the year at The Den, a game many still refer to as one of the finest games of women’s football witnessed, three goals to one in the regular season and most recently three-nil in the qualifying final. Finals football is often a different game and with United boasting experienced women’s coach Andrew Armandi and the likes of Jasmine Smith and Aimee Beck it was always going to be a tight encounter. The game commenced with Centrals led by Tess Andrews winning the toss and kicking towards the Dohle Road end with the breeze. The Lions went on the attack early however it was the energetic Ella Firth for United that was creating the early play for the Reds as the pushed into attack creating problems for the young Centrals backline that was led by Alexis Lunnay and Ellie Seaton. The first clear cut chance of the game fell to Tracey Long of Centrals who broke through the heart of the United defence and hit it straight at the United goal. Less than a minute later Long broke free again this time hitting the post, then immediately after the other post and within only a few minutes having another shot touched onto the crossbar by the keeper. With Centrals on the attack young striker Kiah Connolly was brought on however the Lions could not find a way through. Firth and now the impressive Lauren Frost were combining well for United and the best chance of the first half soon fell to Jasmine White who found herself unmarked in the Centrals box however her strike was kept out by Kali Langley in the Centrals goal. With the score remained deadlocked and chances few and far between both teams went into the halftime break confident that they could win the title. Kicking into a stronger breeze in the second half Centrals struggled to find their rhythm and it was once again the United midfield of Firth and Frost that were creating the better chances. Young Emma O’Callaghan was called on the mark Firth and as the game moved into its final stages the Centrals midfield of Andrews and the hard working Kendell Saffin started to find the likes of Wanita

Robinson and the veteran, playing her final game Keisha Seilor. Centrals pushed more players forward in a desperate attempt to stop the game going into extra time and with five up front for the last five minutes found a lifeline in the dying seconds of the game when the ball struck a United player on the arm in the penalty box. With all eyes on the referee and after consultation with the linesperson, a penalty was awarded and Tess Andrews stepped up to take the final kick of the game. Andrews calmly slotted the spot kick to the right hand side of the keeper enabling Centrals to claim their first ever senior women’s title and their second premiership for the day, capping off an outstanding season for the Lions. Kendell Saffin from the Gambier Centrals Football Club was awarded the inaugural Jenna McCormick medal, for best on ground, by the referees.

STUDENTS SHINE IN DEBATING COMPETITION

Earlier this month a selection of Year 9 students from Grant High School participated in the annual interclass debating competition. Eight teams comprised of representatives from each of the Year 9 English classes, battled it out over eight tough debates. These affirmative and negative

teams explored, defined and rebutted over two contentious issues, “That zoos do more harm than good,” and “That censorship of the internet is inappropriate.” Former Grant High School teacher and debating aficionado, Marg Kaethner acted as the adjudicator on the day, and was able to provide the budding debaters with insightful feedback and handy tips for improvement. The students had thoroughly prepared their arguments and worked in teams effectively to convince the audience and the adjudicator of their case. This competition is integrated with a core English unit, which is taught as part of Grant’s Year 9 curriculum. The students who bravely stepped into the speaker’s den were not the only stars of the day; their classmates also volunteered their time to assist with the roles of timekeeper and chairman in order to ensure the smooth running of the competition. Scores were close between teams all through the day, with each team growing in confidence as the day progressed. After the dust had settled, two teams emerged as victors of the day and advanced to the Grand Finale later that same week. The team from Fiona Mitchell’s class comprising Caitlin Clements, Mitchell Little and Ethan Thomas, took on Ms Ramzan’s team made up of Sienna Dougherty, Maia Naismith and Abbey Dyson to debate over the topic, “That Australia should introduce a tax on foods that are high in sugar.”

With Caitlin Letizia acting as chairman and Emma Treskow timekeeping, the debate was declared officially open. Sienna Dougherty was the first affirmative speaker, who defined the topic succinctly and with her animated speech set the tone for the afternoon. Caitlin Clements rebutted beautifully for the negative team and was equally convincing in establishing her own points about why “Australia should not introduce a sugar tax.” Maia Naismith then spoke for the affirmative; while she was a little more reserved than her predecessors, she was able to question the validity of Caitlin’s argument as well as presenting her own points with conviction. Mitchell Little then stepped onto the stage and supported his team well by rebutting and presenting highly sophisticated arguments reinforced by quality evidence. Abbey Dyson was the third speaker for the affirmative, and with minimal preparation, was able to successfully rebut the negatives arguments and emphasize the affirmative’s position. Ethan Thomas was the last to grace the stage, with arguably the toughest speaking job, rebutted admirably and reinforced the negative’s argument that “Australia should not introduce a sugar tax.” Each team worked effectively and the outcome of their hard work and dedication was evident by the close result.
