COVER • PENOLA IGA CELEBRATES 10 YEARS AT CHURCH STREET SITE Penola IGA is an iconic landmark on the Limestone Coast commercial landscape – not just because of its prime position at the town entrance but because it has become a mecca for food lovers looking for fresh, South Australian produce. Add to that the quality customer service and Kerry and Shane McPherson have exceeded even their own expectations when relocating to the prominent Church Street site a decade ago. The Penola IGA team are set to celebrate 10 years in their new premises on December 8 – a decade built on sourcing quality produce, training friendly and expert local staff and ensuring the Penola IGA shopping experience is always a great experience. After 19 years in its original home, the move to the expansive Church Street site in 2008 paid almost immediate dividends and since 2010, the industry awards have flowed. In 2010 and ’11, Penola IGA was named the SA IGA Retailer of the Year, also taking out the frozen foods & dairy freezer, grocery, general merchandise and customer service department awards. It was in 2011 that the store also reached its greatest height – named National Store of the Year – and again bringing home the best grocery and dairy/freezer departments in Australia. The following year, Penola IGA picked up the best bakery and dairy/freezer department awards, while in 2013 the store was adjudged to have the

best grocery and bakery departments in the State. And Penola IGA is still winning awards, taking home the South Australian dairy and freezer department award again this year. But for all those accolades, it is the satisfaction of their customers that brings the true reward for the Penola IGA team. They pride themselves on stocking a wide range of products, from the everyday staples to gourmet items and delectable treats, as well as catering to specialist dietary needs, especially gluten free and vegan products. Fresh fruit and vegetables, direct from market, has always been a priority for Kerry and Shane and the team, with quality meat, sourced from Richards Butchers, and a diverse range of

international and Australian cheeses, gourmet products and speciality meats. In fact, the new cheese display is the latest innovation in the always developing store, that boasts a 30 door freezer department that houses icecream, speciality meals and every frozen item you can think of, while salad, antipasto, seafood and poultry are also all in store. When the new store opened in 2008, it was all about servicing the Penola community, but such is the reputation of this award winning supermarket that Penola IGA attracts loyal shoppers from right across the Limestone Coast and South West Victoria. Kerry and Shane proudly employ more than 40 locals, ranging from junior trainees up to experienced,

BRINGING HISTORY TO LIFE Growing up on the family property at Kalangadoo Simon Bryant lived next door to the great Lois Dean – a South East treasure with a passion for history – so it is hardly surprising Simon also researches history and delves into the archives at every opportunity. Combining a passion for history and writing, Simon has taken a different tack to your usual re-telling of times gone by – he blends fact with fiction, keeping his stories historically accurate but using poetic licence with his characters to bring the period to life. It all started with a diary from Kalangadoo Station – the diary of Minnie Hunter – and Simon brings that time in this region to life in his novel Boss, exploring the life of early pastoralists, the plight of the indigenous population and just what faced the pioneers of this region. “As soon as I read the diary excerpts I knew there was a book here,” Simon said. “The core elements of the diary just made a wonderful story.” That wasn’t until many years later, though, and it has sparked something inside Simon that is seeing him feverishly working on a number of similar stories to retell history in an accessible way. Boss focuses on the second half of the 19th century and took around six months for Simon to produce his first draft but after he self-edited and then handed the manuscript to a Sydney based editor, it was a four year process from typing the first words to the finished book. For Simon, creative writing and exploring history was a welcome change from his long serving career in the public service, and creating historical Australian fiction is now what fills his retirement. It has seen him reinvigorate his writing skills from his days as an English Literature student at Adelaide University and his time in radio. “I had done a fair bit of writing for different groups and had dabbled in creative writing,” Simon said. “To start off mt serious writing with Minnie Hunter was amazing. It is a story of sheer perseverance and the toughness and resilience of the early settlers.” Simon was also not prepared to shy away from any of the more difficult aspects of the story, especially the treatment of the indigenous population and the complicated relationship between Minnie and the Aboriginal communities. “In the end, the story just about told itself,” Simon said.

And with the ink barely dry ion his debut novel, Simon wasted no time delving into book number two, focussing on Melbourne in the 1890s. “Again I have done a lot of research and it is based in fact but centred on fictional characters,” Simon said. It was in his research of Minnie Hunter’s life that inspiration for the second book came – Minnie spent part of her life in Melbourne. Taken In is the name of the second book, which is set for release early next year, and it looks at Melbourne in a time when the riches of the goldfields made the Victorian capital an exciting and decadent place to be. “It was a battle of the old wealthy and the new wealthy and then there was those people that were really struggling,” Simon said. It also looks at the suffragette movement and the early history of Australian Rules football. And if you think Simon is looking to take a breath before diving into a third book – you would be wrong. It is in its infancy and will be a sequel to Taken In, such was the richness and diversity of information he uncovered about that time in Australian history.

For Simon, writing is a discipline and he looks to get in two to three hours each day. “I really like writing about things based in historical reality rather than inventing something off the top of my head,” Simon said. Limestone Coast residents interested in meeting Simon and getting their hands on his debut novel Boss should head to the Glencoe Woolshed this Sunday at 3pm for an afternoon with the author. Entry is $10 with refreshments provided.

of the Year. And while he enjoyed the hype and the chance to rub shoulders with artists and industry heavyweights, what he is most excited about is winning the ARIA has given him a platform to preach his gospel – the importance of music education. Scott found out the Friday before the ARIA Award gala presentation but kept his victory a closely guarded secret and then set himself to soak in every minute of November 28. Ignoring the fact, he was basically awake from 2-4am contemplating the best words for his acceptance speech, Scott and his wife Vanessa’s day officially started at 2pm with the red carpet and the Teacher of the Year was scheduled to take that walk through the media throng in the same way as the major artists. “It was crazy – Dan Sultan was behind me but I was so caught up in it I barely noticed,” Scott said. “It was basically a media festival.” There were up to 60 broadcast journalists capturing on camera interviews and then there was a sponsor walls where basically hundreds of photos were taken and Scott was as in demand as any other ARIA nominee. “Everyone there was famous,” Scott said. “I didn’t know where to look.” His award sponsor The Song Room certainly guided him through the media maze and Scott admits the experience was daunting but so enjoyable. “I think I got better each time I was interviewed,” he said. “Some were serious and some were more fun.” With the red carpet nailed, it was on to the Chairman’s Cocktail Party - a function with wall to wall artists and high ranking officials from the recording companies – and that was where Scott has officially presented his ARIA and made his speech. “That was my chance to have a say and say it in front of all those professionals – it was amazing,” Scott said. “I felt like I had the complete support of the entire room and that my message was resonating with them.” Highlighting Mount Gambier, his school and the support of the wider community were key pillars of Scott’s time in the limelight – as well as, arguably most importantly, his family. “I spoke about the importance of music education in developing a vibrant, creative future for our kids,” he said. The cocktail party was also where Scott spotted Sir Bob Geldof and realised there was no better time, with an ARIA in his hand, to meet the music icon. “Knowing how important he’s been for music in the world I just had to meet him and try not to fan boy,” Scott said. “He was just how I imagined him to be – he was very friendly. He gave me all the time in the world and much respect.” After meeting music royalty, Scott was then ushered into the official presentations and, as only he could, the Grant High music teacher was as fascinated by the production, behind the scenes type activity, as he was the lifestyle1.net | 06

parts we all watched on television. “Each performance had a completely different set and to watch the team of tech crew ands their professionalism and the way they ripped one set down and set up for the next performance was mind blowing,” Scott said. Needless to say, you might see some nifty new stage craft in the next school musical. “It was great to see how the awards come together from inside.” Scott was aware Richard Wilkins would be interviewing him on camera at some stage during the evening and he had two priorities – making sure he mentioned Mount Gambier and also gave a huge shout out to the school and the kids. And it is the school community that has been with Scott every step of the way. As one parent astutely pointed out, post victory, there are way more teachers in Australia than recording artists so it is a victory to savour. And then there was the student who purchased a music trophy, had it engraved with Teacher of the Year and presented it to Scott prior to the awards. “He said it didn’t matter if I won or not,” Scott said. “Things like that are just amazing.” Scott spent just as much time in the media room as any ARIA award winning artist, caught a lift with Courtney Barnett, spent the after party juggling his ARIA, his beer and untold congratulatory handshakes, as well as featuring on Guy Sebastian’s instagram account.

“The traction the award is having already is huge and it starts a conversation about music education in this country,” Scott said. “It is about creating the future of music in Australia and it has given me another reason to believe what I’m doing is making a difference.” And it is clear the music program at Grant High School is doing just that. Numbers continue to spike in the music program, with an unprecedented 46 Year 8 students enrolling for specialist music for 2019. School principal Fleur Roachock could not have been more thrilled to have her school and its music program in the national spotlight. “Obviously Scott’s energy and innovation is outstanding,” she said. “He has inspired a number of young people to explore their musical and dramatic talents through his original works with Mike Bakker. They are such a great duo and what they have done for this program is massive. We are really proud of how well this reflects on our school environment.” Above - Scott Maxwell with his ARIA Award; delivering his acceptance speech at the Chairman’s Cocktail Party and on television being interviewd by Richard Wilkins.

SPACIOUS FAMILY LIVING BY THE SEA


COLLECTED STUPIDITY - OLD SCHOOL… By ROBBIE TANSEL Life continues to throw up opportunities reminding me that I’m getting old. At the moment I’m being regularly confronted by the fact that things that I like are now old fashioned. Obviously I can’t make a statement like that without backing it up so… Let’s start with CDs. For you youngsters, the ‘C’ stands for Compact and the ‘D’ for Disc. A Compact Disc is a flat, round disc that stores music. To play it, you need to put it into a CD player, or into a computer that has a CD drive. At one point in time, Compact Discs were considered state of the art. The latest vehicle we purchased for our stupid dog Taserface, doesn’t even have a CD player. And that’s not because it has a tape player or an 8-track player (I haven’t got time to explain. Google it yourself). Now instead of a CD player, my vehicle has the capabilities to connect my phone by a 3.5mm stereo connection. I still like buying CDs. They come with nice artwork. They look nice on a shelf in your house. Anyway, I do still buy CDs when I get a chance, but I thought I was moving with the times when I started purchasing songs through the Apple iTunes store. I would put these songs on my phone and connect my phone via the 3.5mm stereo connection in my car. Everything about that was fine. Imagine my distress then when I went and bought a new phone on the weekend. I’m not the

sort of person who replaces their phone because their contract is up, or because there is a newer, better phone. I went to get a new phone because the phone I had was struggling to hold charge for a day anymore. But if I get a new phone, it’s not a style decision; it’s based on its functionality. Now when I buy a phone, I want the transaction to be quick and painless. That part of the process was actually pretty good. The problem came when I went to connect my new phone to the 3.5mm stereo cord in my car, because I’m happening and up to date with new technologies. I couldn’t find the little hole in my phone to plug the cord into. Apple don’t have a 3.5mm stereo connection on their new phones anymore! So once again, I’m still not up to date with new technology. As if that’s not all bad enough, the youngster in the phone shop who I went back to complain to tells me that I should be just Blue toothing. He then found out that I had songs on my phone and spent the next couple of minutes telling me that I needed to be on Spotify. Even when I’m keeping up, I’m still not keeping up. Other things that I thought were up to date but are actually old fashioned: I’ve slowly started transitioning from DVD to Blu Ray movies. The I find out no one is buying discs of any kind any more. Apparently everyone watches movies and TV shows on Netflix. It would have been nice if someone told me. Not that it would have changed anything though. I like having a disc. In a cover. That you very carefully put into a player to ensure you don’t scratch the disc. Going and looking at

different options at your local retailer is so much more satisfying than scanning through options on your computer or other device. Adding to the reasons I’m old fashioned, I like to have a real book in my hands, not a digital version, I think shops should be open five days a week, plus Saturday mornings and Thursday nights, and I don’t think that cars should be able to park themselves, that vacuum should be able to travel around the floor by themselves, or that fridges should have a digital screen. How is it that I became old-fashioned and didn’t realise it? About nine years ago I was current and happening, but I suddenly find myself about nine years behind where technology is now. Did something happen nine years ago? Did I get trapped in some sort of time warp? Hang on a minute; Shaquille is nine years old. I think that when we had our first kid, we got sucked into some sort of alternate universe where time travels differently. If you think we should form some sort of club of people who don’t want to move with the times, email me at robbietansel@gmail.com

GLENELG SHIRE & LIMESTONE COAST SET TO BE PART OF POPULAR BIKE RACE Victoria’s greatest bike ride will be coming to the Glenelg Shire and Limestone Coast next year as part of a new look cross-border itinerary. The Great Victorian Bike Ride has announced a new route for the iconic event in 2019, making a stop in Portland as part of the 600km 10 day journey. The 2019 tour will now begin along the Limestone Coast on Friday, November 22, and then travel across the border to the Great Ocean Road and through the Great Otway National Park, finishing in Torquay on Sunday, December 1. Participants will ride into Portland on Monday, November 25. The Great Victorian Ride was established in 1984 by Bicycle Network Victoria and sees more than 5000 cyclists from across the state come together to celebrate a love of cycling in picturesque regional settings. Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said council was thrilled to welcome back the event to the shire. “Council is excited to once again host The Great Vic Bike Ride in the Shire after successful campaigns in both 2009 and 2013,” she said. “The anecdotal feedback we received from the riders who attended these events was overwhelming positive, with participants nominating Portland and Nelson as both their favourite days of riding. In fact statistics from the 2017 event have shown that 66 per cent of participants return to the towns that they have visited within 12 months and 53 per cent bring with them two or more people.

THIRD TIME LUCKY It is a case of third time lucky for aspiring singer-songwriter Matt James, with the 25 year old Mount Gambier based performer being named as one of 10 finalists for the 2019 Toyota Star Maker - Australia’s most significant and longest-running search for a new country star. It is the third successive year Matt has applied to be in the running and he will now hit the stage on January 20, at the 47th Tamworth Country Music Festival, to vie for the top gong on the 40th anniversary of the award – an award that has such industry luminaries as Keith Urban, Lee Kernaghan, James Blundell, Gina Jeffreys and Beccy Cole on its honour role. The winner will receive a prize package which includes the use of a new Toyota vehicle and a fuel card for 12 months, plus guaranteed performances at major festivals and events throughout Australia. It will make for a busy time in Tamworth for the rising star, who is set to perform two of his own songs to wow the judges, as he was already committed to 18 performances in seven days, across the 10 day event. In fact, two months ago he was confirmed as one of the emerging and established artists to play Live and Loud – one of the major gigs of the festival – on January 24, so however the Star Maker pans out, Matt will be reaching thousands of fans. He certainly wouldn’t knock back the award, should he take it out, though. “Keith Urban won it in 1990 so hopefully in 25 years I’ve still got a career even half as good as his,” Matt said. Matt grew up in a musical household, his mother is award winning artist Sandra Humphries, but he admits to being a latecomer to the music scene

as a serious performer and songwriter. He started with the guitar at 14, dabbled on the drums and only as a 17 year old started to hone his craft as a vocalist. “I could pick up a guitar whenever I wanted – I could actually tune a guitar before I could play one - but it was never forced on me,” Matt said. “But once I did, it just kept on going like a long train and it hasn’t stopped. It’s like I was born to do it really, which I know is cliched.” Matt also headed to university later than most but now he has a Bachelor of Music (Popular Music), from Elder Conservatorium, under his belt, he has never been more sure that he wants to continue to pursue a career in the music industry. “There was a lot of song writing, as well as performance, technology, engineering and recording and the business side of the industry so I feel like it covered everything,” Matt said. “I know feel like I have more knowledge about the industry and how it works, as well as having made some good contacts.” Given Matt used to tour with his mother when she hit the road, enjoying a bird’s eye view of the industry, it is intriguing he still found the conservatorium experience so valuable. “I used to sit at the side of the stage and play along with the drums and mum sometimes even got me on stage but I think university was a chance for me to spread my wings I guess,” Matt said. “I think I always saw myself as doing something with music and this was my chance to branch out and take the first step. I have made a lot of friends out of my time at uni, and, also got a lot of work and a lot of gigs.” Locally, Matt is a regular at Metro Bakery & Café, Mac’s Hotel and the

Bay Pizzeria and has also started performing at The Apple Farm. Local gigs are just starting to heat up for the popular performer with his summer schedule normally seeing him with up to three gigs a week. And what he plays depends on the crowd. “You have to read the crowd at every gig to sense what they’re into,” Matt, who offers up a range of originals and covers across a variety of genres, said. And those originals can now be yours. Matt has record two of his own songs, with the first single, Miss This, released last Friday, with the second one still undergoing the finishing touches. He has also shot a video clip and loved every minute of both the recording and video shoot as he looks to share his own work with a wide audience. Matt headed to Brisbane, to Red Engine Recording, to work with Andrew Cochrane, shooting the film clip in Sydney with Blacklist Productions. Cochrane was Matt’s first choice to produce his originals – he is hoping to release a four track EP some time next year - and he was thrilled the respected producer was happy to get involved. “He has worked with a lot of young country artists in Australia and I wanted to sound like that,” Matt said. “I was lucky when I sent him my stuff that he thought I had something good. To hear that from a producer you want to work with is amazing and I honestly didn’t have anyone else in mind. I am glad I had spent some time in the recording studio, with mum, playing guitar for other people and at university, so when I was recording my own stuff I felt comfortable. He (Cochrane) had some really good ideas, which is why I wanted to work with him. We just seem to have the same vision and always ended up in

the same spot.” While being in the recording studio was not foreign to Matt, being in front of the camera was. “It was my first time in front of a camera and basically having to act,” Matt said. “It is not like performing or just having a conversation, it was all about standing there and looking there and I almost felt like a robot while I was getting used to it. In the end it was a pretty cool experience.” Matt’s formal music education began as a Year 10 student at Grant High School so it is somewhat serendipitous that in the week he released his debut single, his high school teacher, Scott Maxwell, took home an ARIA for Teacher of the Year. “I got along so well with him and he just made me love music even more,” Matt said. Matt is also currently working at Mount Gambier High School teaching guitar and working in both music and

KASEY’S NIGHT OF NIGHTS You could tell how much it meant to the girl who grew up singing country music songs around a campfire on the Nullarbor Plain by the passion in her performance, the warm hug with presenter and long time friend Paul Kelly and the gracious words of her acceptance speech. But perhaps the enormity of her induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame hit home most when guest presenter for Song of the Year, Sir Bob Geldof, singled out Kasey Chambers with his own heartfelt tribute to the talented songstress, who once called this region home. Kasey’s face said it all as the music industry icon praised the 2018 ARIA Hall of Fame inductee. It all started for Kasey as a nine or 10 year old in the Dead Ringer Band – the Chambers family band – and the now, 42 year old, is still going strong. “I’m the proudest dad in the world,” father Bill Chambers said in a taped

package documenting Kasey’s career. And it seems Kasey’s sentiments on winning her first ARIA in 1999, when she said “I didn’t think people like me won awards like this” still appeared to be her reaction to the Hall of Fame induction but throughout her acceptance speech, the role her family has played was front and centre. “My mum and dad are the two best role models anyone could ask for,” Kasey said, recalling her two favourite

pieces of advice from her parents. Kasey’s mum telling her talented daughter “being a bitch doesn’t make you strong and being strong doesn’t make you a bitch”, while father Bill was even more to the point – “just don’t be a dickhead”. The 14-time ARIA award winner got especially emotional when thanking her brother Nash, who she has performed alongside and worked with every step of the way. lifestyle1.net | 24

“This really is as much yours as it is mine,” Kasey said. The Hall of Fame inductee passing on some of her own advice to the next generation of musicians. “I just always wanted to be authentic,” she said. “Just be yourself and doing what’s true to you can influence and inspire so many people.” And that is exactly what Kasey has done, with Bernard Fanning calling her “one of the best songwriters of our generation”. Kasey also took home Best Country Album for her latest release – Campfire. Far left - Kasey Chambers accepting her ARIA Hall of Fame award from legend Paul Kelly.

OPEN FOR BUSINESS Southern Grampians Shire residents can enjoy a free dip this summer with all outdoor pools now open. This season council is trialling free entry to our outdoor pools for casual swimming and looking to see what that does for attendance numbers. All pools will be opened from 3pm to 7pm seven days a week, when the temperature is greater than 21 degrees for heated pools and 23 degrees for unheated pools. All pools will open 12pm to 7pm when the air temperature forecast by the Bureau of Meteorology at 4pm for the next day is more than 35 degrees (weekends and all of January only). Supervised early morning swimming will be offered regardless of temperature at Hamilton and Coleraine three mornings a week. Community or sporting groups can request special use of the pools outside these dedicated service levels during the nominated season.

MEN’S SHED DONATES TOYS TO MAYOR’S CHRISTMAS APPEAL City of Mount Gambier Mayor Lynette Martin last week accepted 100 handmade wooden toys as donations to the appeal created by members of the Mount Gambier Men’s Shed. “About six of us have spent hundreds of hours throughout the past year putting together and painting the toys,” Men’s Shed Publicity Officer Peter Heness said. “Using donated timber and paint from Mitre 10 and Bunnings, we’ve made wooden toy buses, abacuses, hobby horses, dogs, ducks and cradles for the children. The hardest part was the painting and we’ve done our very best to ensure that each child receives a quality toy.” Mayor Martin said she was pleased to accept the beautiful wooden toys from the Men’s Shed. “I thank everyone who was involved in this project and I am certain the children who receive them will get great pleasure from them,” Mayor Martin said. Local businesses, community groups, families and individuals are encouraged to consider those less fortunate this festive season and donate to the 2018 Mount Gambier Community Mayor’s Christmas Appeal. The appeal provides a united and direct local response to the needs of the community during the Christmas

period each year. Uniting Care, ac.care, Lifeline SE, St Vincent de Paul and The Salvation Army jointly distribute all donations through the Christmas Cheer program. “The appeal provides much needed support for less fortunate, vulnerable or isolated members of the local community at Christmas,” Mayor Martin said. “For most people in our community, Christmas is a happy time spent with family and friends but unfortunately there are some who find it a lonely time. This is my first Christmas as Mayor of Mount Gambier and I really would like to make it a happier one for these members of our community.” Last year, the Mount Gambier Mayor’s Community Christmas Appeal assisted 440 families, 753 adults, 152 teenagers and 500 children with Christmas food hampers, vouchers or gifts. “I’ll be approaching the business community directly and by letter and hope they will support the cause. I encourage shop owners to place an appeal donation tin on their counters to do what they can to help,” Mayor Martin said. HOW TO DONATE • By phoning (08) 8721 2555 with your credit card details on hand. • In person at the City of Mount Gambier Customer Service counter - Civic Centre, 10 Watson Terrace. • By sending a cheque made out to ‘Mount Gambier Community Christmas Appeal’ to: PO Box 56 Mount Gambier SA 5290. Above - Men’s Shed members Ian Bond and Peter Heness presented City of Mount Gambier Mayor Lynette Martin with 100 handcrafted wooden toys.

NEW FANTASY APP COMBINES TECHNOLOGY & EXERCISE The District Council of Grant is turning the Port MacDonnell Foreshore into a digital fantasy land, with dinosaurs, robots and kittens coming to play. Council, in collaboration with GEO AR Games, are converting a section of the foreshore (adjacent to the new Waterfront development) into a Magical Park; an augmented reality world that encourages children to get outside and be active with their devices. District Council of Grant Deputy CEO Jane Fetherstonhaugh said it was the first of its kind in the Limestone Coast. “Children download the Magical Park app onto a smart phone or tablet, and it transforms the designated space into a magical playground,” she said. “They can run around with their friends and complete gaming tasks such as saving kittens, evading dinosaurs or learning about recycling by collecting litter. We are very excited to present this to the community. A Magical Park opens up a whole new dimension, linking devices to the outdoors and it’s a natural follow on from the great work council have

been doing with schools in our district in the STEM space. Council has made this available for use for a period of 12 months, with new content being rotated through on a regular basis. We are encouraging families to keep coming back to Port MacDonnell to try out new games and have some fun.” Some key facts about a Magical Park: • It is geo-fenced - meaning it won’t work outside the selected area • 50-100KB of data is used per game which is the equivalent of a plain email • Children spend 30-60 minutes per game • Children run on average about 500m – 2km per game • It encourages educational content as well as all the fun stuff • It encourages children to have a healthier relationship with technology • Best of all – its free! The Magical Park will be launched and available to play from December 18, in conjunction with the Port MacDonnell Tourism Association and the annual Santa by the Sea event. People can make their way to the Port MacDonnell foreshore, and the Magical Park will be available to play from 4pm, with a free BBQ and soft drinks. Children can then see Santa arrive by sea, near the Port MacDonnell jetty at 5.30pm. The Magical Park app can be downloaded from the iPhone App Store and Android Google Play and is suitable for kids aged 6 to 11 years old.

MULTI MILLION DOLLAR DEVELOPMENT SET TO GET UNDERWAY The demolition and construction phases of Edgarley Assisted Living’s $14.5 million redevelopment project in Jackson Street as begun this week. The Casterton aged care facility will begin the process with the demolition of three houses it owns in Jackson Street before a new, multi-storey, state-ofthe-art, purpose-built aged care facility is constructed. It is expected to take about two weeks to remove the existing houses. The new building construction will begin in February, following the completion of the demolition and ground preparation works, exactly 64 years after Edgarley was opened as a community-owned aged care facility, on February 6, 1955. The redevelopment project is the largest undertaken in Edgarley’s history, and marks a significant milestone for the organisation which began with a community fundraising effort in the 1940s to create an ‘Old Folks Home’ in Casterton for local people to age in their own community. The originally purchased residential house in Jackson Street – currently used as the administration building – will be retained as part of this redevelopment project. The project, funded through the Australian Government’s Aged Care Funding Round and locally raised funds, is expected to inject significant economic stimulus to the local area. The refined designs of the building, which can be viewed online at the Edgarley website, will begin to take shape early next year. One of the biggest projects ever undertaken in the local area in the past 25 years, Glenelg Shire Council chief executive officer Greg Burgoyne said the redevelopment was a significant economic boost to the local area. “Economically, the benefits to the Casterton community will be substantial – many jobs created both in the construction phase and with going management of the facility,” he said. “The spin off effects will extend to other business sectors as well as attract new residents to Casterton. We certainly look forward to the completion of this wonderful project.” Federal Member for Wannon Dan Tehan – who was integral in advocating the Edgarley funding application – and Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy, both praised the Edgarley Board and the local community for the drive and commitment they had given the redevelopment project, saying they were thrilled to see the construction phase of the project begin. Building designs can be viewed at www.edgarley.com.au

TRIPPING THE LIGHT FANTASTIC FOR 30 YEARS It has been a hectic 12 months for MJ Dance Studio and it will all culminate this weekend when the iconic dance school celebrates its 30th anniversary. Director Maria Slape and her team have cemented a stronghold in Naracoorte, started classes in Casterton, opened an Adelaide studio under the guidance for former alumni Matt Cram, are in the throes of moving premises and, of course, planning the party to end all parties to celebrate three decades of fun and excellence in dance. Ironically, many of MJ’s past students will be sending their best wishes via video messages, with many having gone on to secure careers in the dance industry that has taken them to all corners of the globe. But there will be some star studded guests, part of the weekend’s performances and parties, as three days of celebrations kick off this Friday night. Limited tickets are still available for the 7pm Friday concert, while the Saturday afternoon performance is sold out. Past and present students and their families are also invited to Saturday night’s cocktail party at the Main Corner, with the weekend rounding out with a Family Fun Day at the Rail Lands on Sunday. The concerts are certainly

the centrepiece of the weekend and promise to be like no other MJ showcase in the past three decades. “The concerts will be like no other concert we’ve ever had,” Maria said. There will be the guest appearances from graduates who have gone on to carve a career in the dance industry, as well as new pieces, never before seen, even by parents in class, that have been created by MJ alumni from the past 30 years. Euan Doidge headlines the guest artists as arguably the best known of the school’s graduates with his roles in, most notably, A Chorus Line, Legally Blonde, Les Miserable, Kinky Boots and Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Katarina Gajic is also going to be front and centre in what could be locals last chance in some time to see the talented dancer on stage in Australia – she is headed to Europe to audition for dance companies, fresh from being crowned Graduate of the Year at WAAPA (Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts). Matt Cram, now the principal of MJ Dance Studio, in Adelaide, has choreographed one of the pieces – Sequins & Feathers – paying homage to his time on cruise ships, while

Cristina d’Agostino, another popular and hugely successful MJ graduate, currently on tour with Jersey Boys, has choreographed a work incorporating highlights from her musical theatre career including Matilda, West Side Story, Guys & Dolls. Katarina has created a contemporary piece, Daniel Ryan, arguably the oldest alumni returning for the celebrations, who now runs his own dance studio in Melbourne, has put together an old style jazz number, while Cooper Terry, who has enjoyed an eclectic career since leaving MJ, has choreographed a contemporary piece. And the list goes on – there will be a contemporary jazz item created by Kiana De Van Der Schueren, who has been working on cruise ships and has secured a place in Cirque De Soleil’s upcoming Las Vegas show, sister Symiko, who created a commercial contemporary number, and has been in The Lion King, taught internationally and is now joining the cruise ship revolution, while Mikaela Ryan has put together a work utilising a mix of styles and Maddy Macera, who has created a contemporary work. Past students and Federation University graduates Jaylee Waters and Michaela

Pace will perform at both concerts. “It is incredible what all these kids have achieved and are achieving,” Maria said. “I don’t think there would be another regional centre to have had so many students go on to such amazing careers.” The MJ Dance Studio founder has barely had time to take a breath, let alone reflect, on the studio’s proud history but as put the finishing touches to this weekend’s celebrations, she has had cause to pause and become nostalgic. “Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would turn out like this,” Maria said. “It was supposed to be a hobby and how it has all turned out is crazy. What I love most is how everyone talks about their MJ family. The successes have been amazing but the friendships, the people I’ve met, the people I am still really close to – that is what has made this all so special.” Maria is still in close contact with so many past students and tries to get to as many of their performances as possible and the good news is., with daughter Chrissy Jenkin by her side, the legacy shows no sign of disappearing. “Having Chrissy alongside me

is great,” Maria said. “Her vision is very much the same as mine. She’s passionate. She’s so driven and that’s really good. The future is secure.” Tickets for Friday night’s concert are available from the Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre, tickets for the cocktail party are available at Birdie Blue and Mangos and family fun day tickets are available from Birdie Blue. The school’s ballet and acrobatics program will also showcase their talents during the 30th anniversary program. The MJ Dance Studio 30th anniversary celebrations will spill into next month when the school sends a contingent of around 40 dancers to the National Showcase, which is celebrating its own 25 year anniversary, in Queensland – the competition that in so many ways has put this Mount Gambier school well and truly on the dancing map.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PROJECT ON DISPLAY AT MAIN CORNER The Clothesline Project honours women survivors and victims of domestic violence. It commenced on Cape Cod, Massachusetts in 1990 when a coalition of women’s groups developed a program to educate, break the silence and bear witness to the issue of violence against women and now Mount Gambier has taken up the project. The Clothesline Project provides an opportunity for women to tell their story by decorating a T shirt with words and/or pictures that are hung on a clothesline in a public place. This acts as an educational tool for those that see the clothesline and a healing tool for those who make a shirt as they realise they are not alone. The Limestone

Coast Family Violence Action Group in conjunction with The City of Mount Gambier is hosting the Clothesline Project. The display of t-shirts is set up

in the South Link of the Main Corner, in Mount Gambier, with the display running until December 10.

Testimonial KEVIN & Cheryl Brown moved to Woodlands when they were aged in their 60’s. They had friends who lived at Woodlands that they used to visit on a regular basis. The atmosphere and security enticed them to make the move – and they say it’s the best thing they ever did! Their home is spacious and the low maintenance yard means they can “lock up and leave” whenever they like, knowing their home is secure and the lawns will be mowed while they are away. They love the social aspect of living at Woodlands and like to partake in bingo, bowls, craft, swimming just to name a few – but when they need solitude they know that they have plenty of privacy too. For those considering the move – their advice is don’t leave it too late!! Move in while you’re young enough to

enjoy the facilities and functions that Woodlands have to offer!! Although the couple are nowhere near ready, they also like the fact that Woodlands have the Serviced Apartments available to them when living in their Independent Living unit becomes too much. They like the idea of having all their meals and cleaning looked after by the friendly staff!! As regular patrons of the Woodlands Restaurant, they already know that the food is of the highest standard!! Kevin & Cheryl worked hard all their lives, so the fact that they can live in a secure environment with people who are like minded has been a huge bonus. They know they have the independence they like – but there is assistance there if they need it! And best of all – no rowdy teenagers or a family with screaming kids will be moving in next door!! So take it from a local – don’t leave it until it’s too late!

CHRISTMAS MESSAGE FROM THE MOUNT GAMBEIR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE Santa arrived in the district last month and with the Mount Gambier City Council decorations adorning our streets, the nativity scene in place at the Cave Gardens, and local businesses also getting into the festive spirit with their stores draped in Yuletide themed displays, Christmas is on our doorstep. Christmas carols are filling the air and local retailers are looking to make your Christmas shopping enjoyable and successful. Once again the Mount Gambier Chamber of Commerce has been happy to work with Lifestyle1 to promote the wide variety of amazing businesses we have in Mount Gambier and to highlight the business owners, who work hard to provide our community with a great choice of product, not only at Christmas time but all year round. The retail sector is the largest employer group in Mount Gambier, making it even more important to support our local businesses as not only do they provide employment for you and your neighbours, but they also provide support for our local schools, charities and sporting clubs. As president of the Mount Gambier Chamber of Commerce I encourage you to shop locally this Christmas. Whether it’s the Commercial Street precinct, the Mount Gambier Marketplace or Mount Gambier Central, Mount Gambier is blessed with a wide variety of stores and gift options and plenty of friendly, helpful staff to ensure you find the perfect gift for everyone this Christmas. I would also like to encourage you to consider those less fortunate in our community. Christmas is generally a time for family and friends to gather, but it can also be a very lonely time for many, therefore I urge you to make a contribution to the Mayor’s Community Christmas Appeal or to one of the many charities available in our city. On behalf of the Mount Gambier Chamber of Commerce I thank you for your support throughout 2018 and wish you all a happy and blessed Christmas. Biddie Shearing Mount Gambier Chamber of Commerce President

SPORT BLUE LAKE FUN RUN

Above (bottom right) - Some of the Reidy Park Primary School contingent - Ruby Charlton, Lara Thorne, Shelby Durbridge, Elle Hammond, Bree Robinson, Lara Jolley & Brock Dempsey (front).

With six time champion Thomas Hynes forced out of the 2018 One Forty One Plantations Blue Lake Fun Run with injury early last week, the stage was set for a new name to be added to the honour role and it turned out to be Victorian runner Bouchaib Chefnaoui (aboverleft). The good news for Hynes is he does still hold the race record, with Chefnaoui completing the course, which was made more challenging this year thanks to strong winds, in 34:57, one minute and 10 seconds outside Hynes’ 2017 mark, which is the event record. History was made, though, with Lucindale’s Nikki Smart (above right) finishing second overall – the highest finish of a female competitor in the event’s history – completing a three-peat for the star runner, giving her four titles overall. Finn Johnson took

out the 6.8km event, with Melanie Johnson the fastest woman over that distance, while the 3.2km event went to Dylan Morton, bettering his 2017 mark, with Rosie Collins making it a three-peat of 3.2km titles in the women’s category. Almost 1100 runners and walkers tackled the three courses, with another strong representation from schools, businesses and fitness groups. Check out our facebook page for more photos.

HOOD MAKES SURPRISE APPEARANCE The heavens turned dark and gloomy for the late game in Mount Gambier softball but Concordes White started the game strongly against Warriors Blue, with a quick three up and three down before finishing off the innings by scoring first with Jo Hopgood crossing the plate. Warriors bounced back with a beautiful left handed home run by Georgia Hood, who was a last minute and very handy inclusion for Warriors. Warriors then had a silver patch, scoring five run, while Concordes added only one. Kelly Doyle played well at first for Warriors after being thrown in at the deep end

and Sam Brown pitched a great game in trying weather conditions while performing well with the bat. Imogen Walker also pitched consistently for Warriors despite the rain and wind and helped her side run out winners, 9-2. The highlight of the clash between Warriors White and Concordes United was the rare feat of not only one triple play but a second one, with Taylor Wilsmore playing a role in both as Warriors ran out winners, while Montanna Millard led Demons to yet another convincing win, having an impact with both the bat and on the pitching mound.

RESULTS Warriors Blue 9 (G. Hood 3 (1HR); I Walker, E. Hartung 2; R. Sneath, S. McDonald, C. Hanson, J. Burston) d Concordes White 2 (S. Brown, C. Fowler, L. Dodds, L. McCallum); Demons 15 (I.

NTP’,s were won by Vyv Bennison, a remarkable shot on the 8th, maybe 30cm, and John Kirby on the 16th. The next game, the last for the year, is at Millicent on December 10.


WHEN IS A SPORT NOT A SPORT? Like many sports fans securing Foxtel sports channels has been a must. A range of sports in your living room 24/7 ….what’s not to like!! It does amaze me some of the viewing on these channels that is classed as ‘sport’. One such program is World Series Poker. I confess that I really enjoy watching it, but I struggle to consider it a sport. These players spend many hours, sometimes for 7-8 days in a row, sitting in a chair looking at their cards. Not exactly poster children for physical activity! This isn’t the first time I’ve argued that something isn’t a sport. I’ve previously had ‘friendly disputes’ with some local dancers that ….in my opinion…dancing isn’t a sport. While I haven’t wavered in my opinion I do concede that the young local dancers are very fit and very dedicated. I have some family in the ‘dancing game’ and have , on occasion, been to a local concert. I’ve seen the likes of Sam Malseed and Euan Doidge in action and there wouldn’t be a footballer in the South East that wouldn’t want to own the physique, the speed, the strength and the flexibility that these dancers have! But I don’t see anyone wishing they had the physique, speed, strength & flexibility of a poker player. For many poker is what you might play at the end of the night after the game with a beer in one hand and a bag of chips in the other.

IT’S NOT THE SIZE OF THE DOG IN THE FIGHT American basketball team the Charlotte Hornets celebrated their 30 year anniversary by announcing their all-time greatest team. Among these ‘giants’ of the game was Tyrone “Muggsy” Bogues who bucked the trend of the prototype NBA basketballer standing at only 5’3. Muggsy is a great example that you can achieve anything with the right blend of skill, hard work, perseverance and the right attitude, even if the odds seem stacked against you.

MOUNT GAMBIER’S GREATEST WORKING BEE CELEBRATED

There was no heavy lifting to be done last week as Mount Gambier residents and descendants of the families that were front and centre of this amazing community project celebrated the 100th anniversary of Mount Gambier’s Rook Walk. It was a far cry from the wall building and lookout construction that engulfed November 27, 1918 but organisers replicated as many aspects of that day as possible, right down to the weather, which was described as slightly chilly with a wind in 1918 and was definitely all of that last Tuesday. The Mount Gambier City Band and Salvation Army Band had provided entertainment during what is largely regarded as the TERMITE & PEST CONTROL city’s largest ever working bee, and again at the anniversary celebrations they provided the musical backdrop – playing the current national anthem as well as God Save The King. Compton Primary School students, dressed in period costume also gave the event an authentic flavour with their re-enactments and singing. But for all the nods TRAILERS to life 100 years ago, the one thing organisers only dared dream of – involvement from the descendants of visionaries Arthur Rook, Eleanor Warren and Patrick Waller – were part of the official ceremony, sharing family memories and taking part in the plaque unveiling and cake cutting. It was a chance call to the Lady Nelson Visitor Information Centre, as descendants of the Rook family were looking to plan a reunion and wanted some advice on accommodation, that set the wheels in motion for a rescheduled family holiday and so many of the family being at last week’s anniversary celebrations of the day around 2500 residents and visitors banded to build a four metre high stone wall that was more than 200 metres WINDOW DRESSINGS long – and all just 16 days after the end of World War I. Mount custom Gambier had lost 143 soldiers during the conflict, with even more still missing at that time, and Arthur Rook’s great niece Susan Chamie called the project, spearheaded by her great uncle a symbol of hope and trust. “The people of Mount Gambier came together to do this and put that time of destruction behind them,” she said. Arthur Rook’s great great nephew James Rook also spoke, urging the many school custom made children at the anniversary to Do it yourself ready to hang lead the charge in 50 years time • BRING IN YOUR OWN • FABRICS • CURTAINS MEASUREMENTS • ACCESSORIES • BLINDS for the 150th celebrations.

organiser as well,” she said. “Just imagine on that day when Mount Gambier stood still with more than 2000 people assembled here at the Lakes – what a sense of community there must have been at that time.” The Mayor also may have uncovered the secret behind the dedication of the workers – the 400 gallons of beer provided by Moloney’s Brewery.

MOBILE RELIEF FOR KYBYBOLITE

Kybybolite is no longer a mobile black spot thanks to the Federal Coalition Government’s $220 million investment in improving mobile coverage. Federal Member for Barker Tony Pasin and Telstra officially launched the Kybybolite tower last week with a crowd of happy Kybybolite residents. This announcement delivers on Tony Pasin’s commitment to address the coverage issues identified at Kybybolite, with the town now receiving improved coverage with a new Telstra mobile base station. “The Coalition’s Mobile Black Spot program is delivering new or improved coverage to sites across Barker through the first three rounds of the program, seeing local businesses and residents benefit from access to 21st century communications,” Mr Pasin said. He said that Kybybolite was identified under the Priority Round of the program as a location

that Government would contribute additional funding to ensure it received improved service. “The ‘priority round’ was different to the other rounds of the blackspot program because it identified locations that would have not attracted private investment from telecommunications companies on their own under a normal round of the Government Program. It required additional Government funding to make it happen,” Mr Pasin said. The Government recently announced a fourth round of the program and is currently calling for applications from the mobile industry to share in the $25 million Federal Government funding for round 4. Mr Pasin is also advocating within Government for further funding of the Mobile Blackspot Program past round 4.

CRUISE SEASON LOOMS Cruise ship passengers will enjoy playing on Cape Bridgewater Beach, exploring Narrawong’s Timandra Gardens and cruising along the Glenelg River in Nelson when the first ship of the season arrives in January. Final itineraries are being planned for the MS Regatta which is due to dock on Thursday, January 10, carrying 650 high end international guests. The vessel is circumnavigating Australia with further stopovers in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. The MS Regatta is followed five days later on Tuesday,, January 15, by the Seven Seas Mariner with 750 largely American passengers which is following a similar cruise path. The passengers will beexperiencing the best the region has to offer with everything from relaxed beach excursions to Cape Bridgewater, Portland Cable Tram and bus tour excursion to local attractions, Glenelg River cruising with a stopover at the Princess Margaret Rose Caves and garden tours at Narrawong’s popular Timandra Gardens. Wine tasting in Port Fairy and the 12 Apostles are also two major drawcards for the vessels. “Together these world class tourism attractions will ensure there is plenty to keep our eager passengers entertained,” Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said.

“There will also be plenty of time in the schedules to ensure further exploration of our local foreshore and CBD attractions and an opportunity to visit our popular foreshore markets.” People can learn more about the pending cruise season at a community information session on Thursday, December 13. Council’s tourism team will provide an overview on the onshore tour excursions and requirements for the foreshore celebrations. “There are still vacancies available for volunteers to assist,” Cr Rank said. Help is still needed to drive shuttle buses, assist as tour guides and simply welcoming passengers ashore. I urge people who think they may have something to offer to attend our community session and put up their hand.” The information session will be held at Glenelg Shire Council Reception Room on December13 at 5.30pm.


CARLIN & GAZZARD UNVEILS NEW LDV RANGE If you are in the market for an affordable and reliable family SUV; a tough, robust work ute; a delivery van that handles like a car or a stylish people mover, LDV has the vehicle for you – and now, so does one of Mount Gambier’s leading car dealerships, Carlin & Gazzard. LDV are part of SAIC, the largest auto manufacturer in China, and while they are a relative new kid on the block in Australia, they are already building an impressive reputation, which is why Carlin & Gazzard jumped at the chance to be the exclusive stockist in the Limestone Coast. SAIC are not only a Fortune Global 500 company, they’re actually the 36th biggest company in the world and have been in the car industry since 1940. LDV became part of SAIC back in 2010 when they acquired the commercial division of the British Motor Corporation, and LDV, itself, has a history dating back to the 1890s, which equates to a lot of vehicles made, sold and driven out the door. SAIC has also forged some strong relationships and undergone joint ventures with General Motors and Volkswagen. When it comes to a family SUV or a people mover, LDV covers all the essentials – safety, style and state-ofthe-art technology – and its range of dual cabs, utes and vans are second to none and provide an option to suit all your work and/or play requirements. Safety, comfort and functionality are the hallmarks of LDV’s extensive commercial range of vehicles and, as
