COVER • A NEW ERA AT CAFE MELZAR For Danielle & Joe Case, Café Melzar was a home away from home. “It was our favourite café and we were probably in there three or four times a week,” Danielle said. Then fate stepped in and gave the coffee loving couple a chance of a lifetime – the chance to own their favourite café. “It came up for sale and it just seemed like a perfect opportunity,” Danielle said. “We didn’t want it to go to somebody that didn’t love it as much as we did.” So now the popular café, as well as its take away coffee outlet Melzar Express, are in the hands of Danielle and Joe and they couldn’t be happier. Danielle went into the venture with hospitality experience and Joe has now joined the team full time, busily learning the industry from the ground up. The couple took over in August and was blessed to be able to retain the wonderful staff. “We have inherited the

most beautiful group of people to work for us,” Danielle said. “We are so lucky.” Danielle and Joe are committed to providing the same quality coffee, as well as a breakfast and lunch menu focussed on local produce and healthy eating options, as well as plenty of sweet treats. Café Melzar is open 7.30am-3pm, from Tuesday to Friday and then open 8am-2pm Saturdays and 8am-1pm on Sundays. They will also be opening this Boxing Day (December 26) so you can get your coffee fix and enjoy a relaxing brekky. Café Melzar serves breakfast all day with lunch options from 11.30am and the Mikro coffee, created by former owner Valeri Tatchenko, is still being used at both Café Melzar and Melzar Express. Café Melzar is in Engelbrecht Lane and Melzar Express in Ripley Arcade, with both boasting that genuine laneway feel.

ALL THE WORLD IS KATARINA’S STAGE She left home as a 15 year old to pursue her dancing dream so it is no real surprise that Katarina Gajic is Europe bound, basically before the ink

on her degree has dried. Her best shot at securing a place in a dance company lies over the ocean and the enterprising dancer, who graduated from Australia’s

most prestigious performing arts school – the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) – this year has already lined up at least two auditions with more set to be scheduled in the coming weeks. “I am having a holiday first and spending Christmas with my family and boyfriend but then it will be all about auditioning,” Katarina said. Her first audition is on January 12 with the Netherlands Dance Theatre, a contemporary dance company that is tough to even get the chance to audition, let alone lock up a contract. Katarina will be auditioning for the junior company, which is common procedure at this level of the industry. “When you have no industry experience, you have to audition for the junior company before you can even think about getting a spot in the main company,” Katarina said. “It is that way with a lot of the places I am looking to audition but it is still a great opportunity as that is how you get your foot in the door and once you have experience that makes getting a job that much easier.” Katarina has focussed on ballet and contemporary throughout her study as a dancer and her ballet background, regardless of whether she looks to join a ballet company or a contemporary company will be critical. “They expect you to have those basics because it is so important for technique.” A case in point, is the very first step of her audition process with the prestigious Netherlands Dance Theatre is a ballet class to learn some repertoire. “And then they cut after that and each round until the final thing you do is a contemporary solo,” Katarina said. She has been working hard on that piece to ensure she has done everything possible to take advantage of this opportunity. “I just keep practising it,” she said. Katarina also has opportunities lined up with a German company and the Zurich Ballet. It has been an eye opening and time consuming process, applying to a raft of European based companies to gain and audition opportunity. “Some have open auditions, some have certain days you have to be there and some will do it privately,” Katarina said. She has also had to send off everything from resumes, to head shots, to clips of technique, to barre work, to solo performances. “Some days I just kept filming and doing it over and over because I wanted it to be just right,” Katarina said. But all that intel has now been sent off to companies throughout Europe. It is an adventure she is going on with her boyfriend, who is also a dancer in search of work. Even then, we have not seen the last of Katarina, as even if she secures a contract somewhere in Europe, they usually start around June, so she intends to return home, either to Perth or Mount Gambier, to continue classes and to work on her trade before embarking lifestyle1.net | 04

officially on her professional career. And there is even a chance it might not be Europe as she has also been shortlisted for a company in Canada. Given a choice, Katarina would love to secure a contemporary gig or neoclassical ballet but work is work and she has enough MJ Dance Studio alumni in the industry to know, you need to take every opportunity as you never know where it might lead. “Wherever I end up I know it will be great experience,” she said. And Europe will be a great opportunity for Katarina, who is of Serbian heritage and has family she has never met that she is hoping to touch base with, while her Hungarian boyfriend is in a similar position. While Katarina knows life in a company will be hard work, she does think her three years at WAAPA have given her a perfect grounding to life as a professional. “The first year was really stripping everything back and going back to basics and almost re-learning many things,” Katarina said. “The second year was really intense, with lots of theory and really delving into the artistic side of things and finding out who you are as an artist and then third year was expanding on that, very focussed on performance and also plenty of experience out in the real world.” Katarina enjoyed placements with the Australian Ballet and the Sydney Dance Company during her final year. “Just watching how a company works was really, really helpful,” she said. “They are both incredible companies, very well organised and it was great to just be involved.” Katarina also spent time at the Western Australia Ballet,

getting a taste of classes, as well as the audition process. Mount Gambier audiences got a taste of her ballet skills when she performed at the 30th anniversary concerts for MJ Dance Studio earlier this month, while Katarina also enjoyed choreographing a contemporary piece for the current students. “I was so happy, they did such a great job,” she said. “It was different to anything they had done before.” For Katarina the brief homecoming was also a chance to quickly touch base with her long time MJ classmates, including Cooper Terry, Imogen Harkness and Haylee Waters, and also see how some younger students have developed and, literally, grown, since she left almost six years ago. Katarina will land in Europe right in time for Christmas.

IT’S PARTY TIME South Australia’s hottest wine buys are waiting to be uncorked this summer festive season. The Limestone Coast Grape and Wine Council (LCGWC) has released its 2018 ‘Top 50’ based on some of the most exciting performers among the 500 entries in the Limestone Coast Wine Show. The wine show committee’s Lauren Hansen said the wish-list was a toast to one of the region’s most successful years on record, saluting trophy and medalwinning wines from the history-making October event. “Judges handed over a record 338 medals, and this was no easy feat given that this year’s entries faced tougher scrutiny than ever before; we had 10 judges rather than the traditional six really teasing apart the top quality wines,” she said. “The 18th annual

wine show saw some great quality wines across the board; whether you’re looking for some fizz for Christmas morning, a top drop to gift a loved one, something unusual for your wine nerd friends or just something tasty to help ease the stress of the silly season, the Limestone Coast has something to suit – and as always, it is punching above its dollar value in terms of quality.” A $20 bottle of wine never tasted so good – the Bill Redman Trophy for Best Wine of Show went to The 2016 George Wyndham ‘I Am George’ Shiraz Cabernet. The 2016 Penley Estate Gryphon was another gold medal winner falling in at the same $20 price point, along with the 2017 Norfolk Rise Estate Shiraz, which was declared Chief of Judges Samantha Connew’s ‘Wine to Watch’. Twenty dollars will

also buy a bottle of the Best Sparkling Wine Trophy Winner NV Leconfield Syn Rouge, and the Best Aromatic White Trophy winner – the 2018 DiGiorgio Family Wines Kongorong Riesling. For only a few dollars more, you can also enjoy DiGiorgio’s 2017 Coonawarra Chardonnay, which was named Best White Wine of Show. Festive hosts looking for something special to pair with their Christmas roasts will get plenty of inspiration from the list’s ‘Perfectly Aged’ section, which really highlights the staying power of the region’s red wines in particular. Labels like Jacaranda Ridge, Lawson’s, Majella, Zema and Wynns all rate a favourable mention, while you cannot go past the Best Museum Trophy Winner 2010 St Hugo Vetus Purum Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon for something

truly memorable. Previous wine show winner Pepper Tree has a 2016 ‘P.J.P’ Super Premium Wrattonbully Cabernet Sauvignon that is also worth the investment. For festive ‘Sparkling and Fizz’, the 2013 Grey Smith Mount Gambier Blanc de Blanc, the 2015 Cuvee Co. The Kenneth Vintage Brut and the 2017 Wangolina Moscato are celebrationready, while the Rose comeback continues with a couple of real stunners in the 2018 Leconfield Coonawarra Rose and the 2018 Petaluma White Label Rose. For something different, the 2018 Bellwether Ant Series Wrattonbully Barbera and the 2018 Penley Estate Spring Release Cab Franc made the List’s ‘Not The Usual Suspects’ category. “The variety of entries from across the Limestone Coast’s six sub-regions

is a really important indicator of the quality of wines from this small corner of Australia, so this list will serve as the ultimate tasting guide for the exciting weeks ahead,” Lauren said. For a full list of the 2018 Top 50 head to www.limestonecoastwine.com.au

END OF AN ERA FOR NEW YEAR’S CELEBRATIONS IN MOUNT GAMBIER Mount Gambier’s annual community New Year’s Eve celebrations are a staple of the festive season, but the current organising committee is giving the community a heads up - this will be the last celebrations organised by the current committee. They will be stepping down and will be looking for a new committee to take on the organisation of the event. The community celebrations began in 2010, and have provided an excellent family-orientated entertainment as the New Year is welcomed in. Committee chair Steve Toope said the community support for the events was very strong, and he was expecting this year’s event to be no different, with a full program of activities planned for families. “All events, no matter what their size or standing, community or commercial, need to continue to grow, change, be relevant and be renewed,” he said. “To be able to put on such an event, we rely on not only the community support but the generosity of the business community. We have been very fortunate to have a number of civic-minded sponsors and supporters over the years and they have all contributed to the success of the event.” Mr Toope said this included longterm supporters of the City of Mount Gambier, District Council of Grant, K&S and Kimberly Clark have all been there from the beginning. Funding has been a huge challenge for the current committee. “This year we had to seek funding from a number of small businesses to make up the short fall,” he said. “It is very time consuming work and without the concerted effort of Maxine Tuffnell, Jeni Jackson and Barry Treloar, there would have been serious question marks over this year’s event.” lifestyle1.net | 06

Entertainment for this year includes live music with Mischief and Mayhem, Ben Hood, Chanceline Kakule, Amy Glouse, Antoinette Mizero, Blue Lake Pipe Band and The Band. Other activities include jumping castles, sand pit, giant slide, chair-a-ride, photo booth, mini putt putt, bungy run, go karts, face painting, Bunnings activity tent, laser tag and the ever popular wrestlers will again be on the card to perform for the crowd. There will be the two sets of fireworks, one around 9.15pm and the other at midnight. In looking to the future and a new committee, members of the current organising committee are more than willing to provide all the support and advice to new members to ensure they can step into the roles. There will be a community meeting towards the end of January to see if there are members of the community willing to step up and to keep the event going for 2019.


COLLECTED STUPIDITY - DAMN CHRISTMAS AGAIN… By ROBBIE TANSEL I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe we’re back at Christmas again. It doesn’t feel like a year since I last survived Christmas. And let’s be honest, surviving is all you can really aspire to at Christmas. I aim to be alive, and I aim to not be incarcerated for killing someone else. As a person who has now gotten through Christmas 43 times I’d like to share some of my surviving Christmas wisdom with you all. Here are a few tips that you can use. Tip one. Keep your expectations low. Going into the day anticipating how great a day it will be, the amazing present you think someone is going to get you, and how awesome the meal you’re going to eat will be, is a recipe for disaster. If you go into the day imagining just another day it leaves you in a position where it doesn’t have to be that great of a day for it to exceed expectations. I like a country song that says, “The days when I keep my gratitude higher than my expectations, I have pretty good days”. That seems like a pretty good attitude for Christmas Day. Tip two. If you haven’t got anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. One of my best, most conflict-free Christmases ever followed this rule well. There had been a heap of family arguments leading into Christmas. By the time we got to the big day, no-one was speaking to anyone else in the family. The entire meal was completely silent. There are no arguments when no-one is talking. If your family haven’t been having problems, not talking is still the easiest bet to stay out of trouble. I’d suggest faking losing your voice. If you are mute, there is no risk of you making a comment about Auntie Edith putting on a few kilos. You’ve got to hold to the commitment to be mute though. Your voice can’t suddenly come back half way through dinner when Grandma asks who wants another piece of money pudding. Tip three. Bring kids. Nearly everything about Christmas is easier with kids. The key difference that kids make to the day is that they attract attention. They are loud. They want everyone to talk to them and notice them. They still find everything about Christmas exciting because it’s completely acceptable for them to request expensive presents from every family member, knowing that they probably will be indulged by these family members, or Santa. Having kids attracting attention means there is no need for anyone to have to make conversation. The kids will be yelling and drawing attention, and all that everyone else has to do is talk

about them, comment on things they do, or ask about what they’ve been up to. If someone asks the kids about what presents they got, there goes the next hour and a half. Having said that, obviously this is only a good tactic if they’re not your kids. Having to spend lunch serving up plates of food for them, cutting their chicken, telling them to keep their finger out of their nose is not necessarily a positive outcome. Mind you, at least you can still use it as an excuse to get out of hearing Uncle Paul tell the story about the time he met Tina Arena for the 85th time. Tip four. If you don’t have kids, it’s not considered appropriate to go to a park and find one there; not even if you offer to give them some lollies. A better idea for those without kids is to consider planning a recreational activity as part of Christmas Day. Maybe a game

of backyard cricket. Maybe put a tarp down, get everyone to take their shirts off, apply baby oil and wrestle. One year my uncle challenged me to a couple of sets of tennis. I’d be a little careful with this after a couple of pieces of Christmas pudding, a couple of beers and two plates of Christmas dinner, on a hot December day. Neither of us felt particularly good after the match although we did have a legitimate reason to exit the festivities and have a lay down. In all honesty my biggest tip is to try to enjoy the day. Think about others. Look out for those who don’t have anyone to share the day with and include them in your day. Take some time to think about the meaning of the day. Be safe and sensible. Police, ambos, firies and other emergency service workers have families too, that they often don’t get to spend parts of the

lifestyle1.net | 07

day with, so don’t have them dealing with the consequences of some dumb decision you make.

AT A GLANCE

REUSE MARKET GETS OFF TO A STRONG START The Mount Gambier ReUse Market was officially opened earlier this month. The market provides a variety of second hand goods for sale at 3 Eucalypt Drive Mount Gambier and aims to reduce waste going to landfill by upcycling and reusing useful items. City of Mount Gambier Deputy Mayor Sonya Mezinec spoke at the opening event and said the market concept is a demonstration of Council’s commitment to dealing with rubbish differently as part of council’s reduce, reuse and recycle philosophy. “We’ve got fast food, we’ve got fast fashion and now we’ve got fast furniture. We can buy household items very cheaply now which sends the message that when you get sick of it, you just throw it out and get something new,” Cr Mezinec said. “We are hoping to change that attitude with the ReUse Market, so that all those items that are still useful can be reused by someone else.” The $560,000 recovery facility was the brainchild of the former

council and endorsed in August last year. Community support for the new initiative has been overwhelming with more than 500 people visiting the market and more than 250 transactions made during the opening day. “I’d like to thank the community for embracing the idea of donating items for the market, there has been an enormous amount of interest and the three occasions it has been open it has been packed and people have really enjoyed their time browsing the market,” Cr Mezinec said. Council encourages community members to drop off unwanted, good quality items for free at the Waste Transfer Station for resale at the ReUse Market. “The community can help with this process by organising their trailer loads so that useful items can be easily removed by staff at the Waste Transfer Station, reducing waste to landfill and reducing the cost of your load.” The ReUse Market team continues to recover donations and items from the waste stream to prepare for the next opening. “The team would like to thank the community and our customers for their support and encouragement so far,” ReUse Market coordinator Rebecca Mobbs said. “You may plan on having a clean out at home over the holidays and if you find anything that you are not using in good condition please consider donating the items to us.” The ReUse Market will be open again on January 9.

TOP HONOUR FOR FRACKING FIGHT Limestone Coast Protection Alliance was exceptionally proud to be one of just three finalists for the 20th annual Jill Hudson Award for Environmental Protection held at the Tandanya Aboriginal Cultural Centre. The award is in memory of Jillian Hudson (19491997) and is made to a person or group living in South Australia, who in the year of the award, made an outstanding contribution to protection of the environment. Limestone Coast Protection Alliance was nominated for actively and tirelessly engaging

communities in the South East to raise awareness of the dangers of gas extraction and other mining to the local environment and water supply, and for influencing the state government’s decision to legislate a 10 year fracking moratorium in the Limestone Coast. LCPA was formed to act on any and all environmental threats to the region. Above - Members of the Limestone Coast Protection Alliance Tony Beck, Cate Cooper, Angus Ralton & Dennis Vice.

SECOND GROUP OF GRADUATES COMPLETE BUSINESS MENTORING Mount Gambier entrepreneur Caitlan Zukauskas has won a 10-day United States start-up tour, taking out the gold eNVIe at Flinders University’s

New Venture Institute Limestone Coast Venture Dorm graduation ceremony, the eNVIes, earlier this month. Together with Limoncello Caravan Bar founder

Tamara Seeley, who won the silver eNVIe, Caitlan will visit start-ups in San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Austin, as part of the eNVI.US 2019 tour in March next year, joining other business founders and previous eNVIe winners, including local graduates from the inaugural Venture Dorm, Ashlee Kalantarian and Daryl Prunnell to attend more than 30 events, pitch competitions, site visits and networking opportunities. Mrs Zukauskas joined seven other graduates from the second semester of the New Venture Institute’s ‘Venture Dorm’ pre-accelerator program to compete for the award at the eNVIes, which were held at the Main Corner Mount Gambier, pitching their ideas as a culmination of seven weeks of practical learning with personalised mentors. The other Venture Dorm graduates include People’s Choice winner Rosangela Crispino, Les Wright, Tammy Flier, Marika Gazzard, Ilana Adam and Narelle Marcus. Prize packages are a bonus to the intensive learning and provide even more long term support to build business on the Limestone Coast. Winners packages include training, consulting and support from Regional Development Australia, Moonshine Labs, Komms Haus, Newsmaker, Chiliad Consulting, NVI’s Innovation Centre, BDO Services, Canva, Raidis Estate wines, Amazon Web Services and the Border Watch. The intensive Venture Dorm program is run by Flinders’ eNVIsion

hub on the Limestone Coast, which was officially launched by Federal Minister for Small and Family Business, the Hon Craig Laundy MP, on Friday 8 June where he met the inaugural Venture Dorm participants. Venture Dorm provides handson training for people who want to learn how entrepreneurs build and market new ventures and either create one themselves, or lift their existing business to greater success. The aim is to take an idea and establish a viable business model that can be scaled up and repeated, in just seven weeks. Topics covered include purpose and vision, lean principals, product development, market development and competition. NVI director Matt Salier says that in addition to the networks Mrs Zukauskas will visit in the United States such as Tech Ranch Global, the institute has relationships with a number of international investors and groups that participants can benefit from. “Flinders’ NVI innovation incubators have links with entrepreneur landing groups in the US, Shanghai and Singapore and that’s a really important part of the value of

both the Venture Dorm program and our co-working space.” The excited audience also heard from Chris Edmonds, principal of Mount Gambier High School, which was recently awarded entry to the Specialist Entrepreneurial schools program as one of five secondary schools in SA and the only regional inclusion. Close links to the program through Envision will help build on the start-up culture on the Limestone Coast. The eNVISion hub is currently located at Shop 1, 33 James Street Mount Gambier, and is run by community manager Ben Deering. Reflecting the importance of regional economies to Australia, the eNVIes, the eNVIsion hub and Venture Dorm program have been made possible through the Federal Government’s Incubator Support Program, together with funding from the city of Mount Gambier, the State Government and the Department of Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA).

Sub Fund of Stand Like Stone and have been established in memory of artist Lorraine (Lorry) Humphreys, who left a significant and lasting legacy to the Limestone Coast region. Lorry Humphreys passed away at the age of 84 in October 2015 and left her entire estate to the Stand Like Stone Foundation. Lorry’s final wishes stated that her estate valued at over $1.4million was be used to provide scholarships and programs for people seeking to pursue a career in the trades and the arts. “Lorry’s estate is the largest individual donation received to date by Stand Like Stone,” said Stand Like Stone Foundation chair Bill DeGaris. “Her gift has already enabled many students from our region to pursue their educational dreams and the announcement of these perpetual named scholarships is in keeping with Lorry’s wishes and will ensure that Lorry’s gift is remembered and acknowledged in perpetuity.” The new scholarships will be known as the Lorry Humphreys’ Arts Scholarship and the Lorry Humphreys’ Trades Scholarship. Each scholarship is valued at $5000 and students who are seeking to undertake study in either field in 2019 are invited to submit an application by 5pm on Friday, February 1. In addition to the Lorry Humphreys’ scholarships a further $2750 funding is available to students from Bordertown and the surrounding areas via the Cornerstone Scholarship Sub Fund.

The Cornerstone Scholarships were established in 2012 via a private donor and are provided for reasons of equity or merit to benefit kindergarten, primary, secondary or tertiary students identifying with the greater Bordertown area. Applications are invited from students with a connection to Bordertown and/or surrounding districts for study to be undertaken next year. The funding will be offered as scholarship/s of up $2750 and may be offered as several smaller scholarships to more than one student. Stand Like Stone is also inviting applications from young people in the Limestone Coast who are in foster care or who have experienced foster care. The LE & NC Myers Educational Scholarship was established by founding donors Kaye and Bob Dalgarno in 2017 to enable opportunities for youth who have experienced foster care, kinship care

and government care. Kaye became aware of the need through her work with the Pine Tree Quilters group, who have donated more than 200 quilts to the ac.care foster care service. The scholarship supports young people under the guardianship of the Minister or who have exited the guardianship of the Minister to achieve their goals in vocational and tertiary education. Funding of up to $1100 is available from the LE & NC Myers Educational Scholarship Sub Fund and eligible students are invited to apply. Stand Like Stone has just finalised the distribution of $24,920 in the general scholarship round, with 29 students being offered scholarships for 2019. Since 2010, the Stand Like Stone Foundation has delivered more than $152,000 through its scholarship program. The announcement of the new perpetual scholarships and release of additional funding will assist the foundation in achieving its goal of strengthening local communities and increasing opportunities for individuals in the Limestone Coast. “The Board is excited to release this additional scholarship funding in the lead up to the holiday period,” said Mr DeGaris. “The foresight of these individual donors has enabled targeted scholarship funds to assist local communities and will provide immense long-term benefits to the recipients. Anyone who is interested in creating a Sub Fund or leaving a gift via his or her Will should contact the foundation. It is incredibly gratifying to see the generosity of locals and the difference that their gift can make.” Applications for the new Lorry Humphreys perpetual scholarships and the additional funding for the Bordertown area and those who have experienced foster care are now open and will close at 5pm on Friday, February 1. Application Forms and more information is available via www. standlikestone.com.au or by contacting executive officer Georgie McKay on (08) 87210480.

AT A GLANCE

LIZ HARFULL SHORTLISTED FOR INTERNATIONAL AWARD A book by author Liz Harfull, who hails from the South East, has been shortlisted in the 2019 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards - an international competition. Liz Harfull’s Tried Tested and True has been named the Australian winner in two categories - food inheritance and easy home

recipes. The book will now represent Australia at the Best in the World competition, which will be announced at an awards ceremony in Macau in July next year. It is the author’s second success in the awards. Her first book, The Blue Ribbon Cookbook, was shortlisted in 2008. About South Australian country shows and show cooks, it was named runner-up out of more than 50 finalists in the easy recipe category and went on to become a surprise national best seller. Released in April, Tried Tested and True brings together treasured recipes and untold stories about Australian community cookbooks and the people who compiled them to raise money for local charities and organisations such as schools, churches and hospitals.

SENSITIVE SANTA RETURNS TO MOUNT GAMBIER MARKETPLACE The Mount Gambier Marketplace has rolled out the red carpet for Santa Claus who arrived at the centre earlier this month. But the big man in red and his reindeers haven’t been the only VIP guests, with Mount Gambier Marketplace once again offering Sensitive Santa visits for families with special needs children with exclusive sessions in the lead-up to Christmas.

NARACOORTE ART GALLERY LAUNCHES NATIONAL ART PRIZE Naracoorte Art Gallery is going global with the launch of a new art prize - the Naracoorte National Art Prize. Worth $10,000, organisers are calling on artists to get involved, with the newly established competition focusing on the World Heritage listed Naracoorte Caves. The prize will dovetail nicely with other celebrations set for 2019 - the 50th anniversary of the discovery of Australian megafauna in the area. The theme of the art prize is Australian megafauna, fossils and caves - an artistic exploration, and is open to all artists across all mediums. Entries are due by July 12 with the exhibition opening set for September 21 and running until October 27. For more information head to naracoorteartgallery.com

Two successful sessions have already been enjoyed by children with one last opportunity this Sunday, December 23. Sensitive Santa Sessions give families in our community with special needs children the opportunity to visit Santa in a low stress environment before general trade commences. There is no music, spotlights or queues, and noise levels are kept down during these private sessions. Having a photo with Santa can be a difficult thing for families of children facing illness or other challenges, so they are offered their very own visit away from peakhour groups, in a wheelchair and pram-friendly environment. Some of these children met Santa for the very first time, and centre management is absolutely thrilled to be able to give families such a memorable gift this festive season. The final Sensitive Santa session will be held for two hours prior to trading on December 23, from 8-10am. Booking is essential for the 10 minute sessions by contacting Centre Management during business hours on (08)8724 8798.

LIBRARY FUNDRAISER Mount Gambier’s Friends of the Library are raising money with their annual Christmas raffle. First prize is a huge wheelbarrow full of goodies including chocolates, wine, biscuits, sweets and a giant ham - everything that will come in very handy for the festive season. The wheelbarrow has been kindly donated by Banner Mitre 10 and an assortment of items purchased or donated by Friends of the Library. Tickets are $2 each and it will be drawn on Friday, December 21.

CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS FROM COUNCIL Lost for the Christmas gift ideas? Why not buy a gift with a difference and help promote our iconic destinations. Glenelg Shire Council’s unique Casterton - Kelpie Country and Portland – Whale Watching Capital specialised number plates are the perfect gift for that ‘hard to buy for’ person this festive season. Since launching two years ago the plates have become sought after items, with parochial locals fitting the plates to their vehicles, showcasing their beloved hometowns. Mayor Cr Anita Rank said to date 90 plates had sold with 37 Portland and 53 Casterton plates purchased. “Forget the socks for dad, pot plant for mum or box of chocolates for a sibling; a number plate is the perfect way to show you have thought outside the box this festive season for that motoring enthusiast,” Cr Rank said. “These number plates are a great way to highlight the attractions in our local destinations, acting as a talking point for the many people who have put them on their vehicles or motorhome. We have heard stories of travelling great lengths across the country and being asked by people about the destination they are promoting on their vehicle. A great talking point for attracting new visitors to our region. It has also been pleasing to see past Portland and Casterton residents wanting to purchase a plate so they can share a little piece of their former home with people. It has also been staggering the interest shown from plate collectors, wanting to add our unique story to their collection with the hopes of perhaps making money in a sale in years to come.” The specialised number plates are available for purchase from council customer service centres in Portland, Casterton and Heywood. “Whether it’s a birth date, wedding anniversary or perhaps a footy geurnsey number; whatever the sequence you can have the luxury of picking your own plate preference,” Cr Rank said. To learn more contact a council customer service centre on 1300 GLENELG. Above - John Atkins, from Portland, with his pesonalised number plate.

AT A GLANCE

SCHOLARSHIP WIN FOR LOCAL DISABILITY SERVICE MANAGER Leading disability service provider Cara has named Mount Gambier’s Kylie Withers as the recipient of their 2018 Nicole Senter Scholarship. Cara awards the Nicole Senter Scholarship every two years in honour of the late Nicole Senter, a Cara customer and Board Director who was renowned for her grit, determination and love of learning. The scholarship will see Kylie receive $5000 towards further study. The mother of two initially started studying teaching, before taking on a job as a support worker with Disability SA. Now a service manager for Cara in Mount Gambier, Kylie is undertaking a Special Education and Disability double degree through the University of New England. “As soon as I started my degree in Special Education and Disability, I knew it was exactly what I wanted to do,” Ms Withers said. “I knew I had found my passion in working with people with disabilities and I wanted to learn more about how I could help people to live their best life. My studies have been invaluable in giving me the

knowledge to support my colleagues to work alongside our customers to help them achieve their goals.” Cara chief executive Liz Cohen, who was on the judging panel for the scholarship along with Nicole’s mother Tracey Fox, said that Kylie was a deserving recipient. “Kylie’s passion for the industry and determination to expand her knowledge, and the business in Mount Gambier is clear to everyone who meets her,” Ms Cohen said. “We call our staff Possible People because they live our promise we find possible, and Kylie epitomises this promise. Under Kylie’s leadership over the past 18 months, the team in Mount Gambier has gone from employing five to 25 staff and still growing. The scholarship win caps off a special year for Kylie, after she was named winner of the Leadership Award at our Recognition of Excellence Awards earlier this year.” Above - Cara service manager, in Mount Gambier, Kylie Withers, who recently won the Nicole Senter Scholarship, with customer Tomas Lockwood.

ROAD SAFETY CAMPAIGN RETURNS Following the successful December 2016 launch of the Little Blue Dinosaur Foundation’s Holiday Time; Slow Down, Kids Around signage campaign with the Limestone Coast Local Government Association member councils will once again be partnering to help ensure the safety of children on our roads these school holidays. School holiday periods create a surge in the population where thousands of children will be using local roadways over the December/January holiday period. Holiday Time; Slow Down, Kids Around is a highly visible and timely reminder about the importance of road safety, for both residents and visitors alike to be more aware of the increase in pedestrian activity in our area, and to stay vigilant with their road safety awareness. “’We are pleased to once again partner with the Little Blue Dinosaur Foundation and the seven councils of the Limestone Coast,”said Limestone Coast Local Government executive officer Dominic Testoni. “Since summer 2016 councils have installed signage in key locations around the region to remind all pedestrians and drivers to be extra vigilant.” The Holiday Time campaign was established in 2014 on the Central Coast by the Little Blue Dinosaur Foundation, after the tragic death of Tom McLaughlin in a pedestrian accident during a family holiday. The campaign is now in 42 councils cross four states in Australia. Tom’s parents, Michelle and David, founded the Little Blue Dinosaur and now channel their energy into making the school holidays safer for children by working with local councils to ensure community safety during these peak periods when accidents are increasingly occurring. “Holiday destinations are most often a new and unfamiliar environment for children and their families with key visual roadway differences including lack of kerbs/guttering, no line markings or footpaths,” said Michelle. “Parents must have a conversation with their children and go through how they are expected to behave when they’re in this environment. We are excited to be working with the LCLGA again this year to continue this vital children’s’ road safety campaign.” The Holiday Time signage can be found in Kingston District Council; Tatiara District Council; City of Mount Gambier; Naracoorte Lucindale Council; District Council of Robe; District Council of Grant & Wattle Range Council. lifestyle1.net | 34

LOCAL HERD TO HEADLINE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE When Mt Schank dairy farmer Mike Green wanted to improve the health and fertility of his herd back in 2004, he added Australian Reds. It was a resounding success and in March next year he’ll show his integrated herd to the world when he hosts delegates from the International Red Dairy Breed Federation conference. The conference and tour are being hosted by the Australian Red Dairy Breed on behalf of the International Red Dairy Breeds Federation. The event is held every three years and is in Australia for the first time since 2000. It follows the theme `Bringing Red Breeds Together` and will run from March 22 to March 29, 2019. Mr Green farms on a 167ha irrigated milking platform with about 300 Aussie Reds, 300 New Zealand Friesians and 50 three-way cross cows with Montbeliardes as the third breed. Mr Green and his family began farming near Mt Schank in South Australia in 2001 after moving from New Zealand. “We came because of the land prices; land was just crazy in the South Island of New Zealand,” he said. The farm they purchased came with 600 head of North American based Holsteins. “We’d never experienced Holstein Friesians from North American standards,” Mr Green said. “All we knew was New Zealand so we crossed the Holsteins with LIC and carried on.” In 2004 they introduced Aussie Reds to improve herd health and fertility, a decision that has paid dividends. “The Holsteins don’t want to get in calf and when they do you’ve got to pull them,” he said. Mr Green looked at introducing Canadian Holsteins but decided they wouldn’t suit the location so after a tour of Sweden in 2004 he started with 400 straws of Swedish Red semen for cross breeding. In 2008 they bought 300 pure bred Australian Reds from John and Monica Williams at Meningie, SA. “We started cross breeding our original herd to breed out the black and white genetics,” he said. “The good cow families are now pure bred.” They have had 42 classified Excellent Aussie Reds, with 10 bred from his original herd from 2004. That includes one at 93 points and three at 92 points. The herd currently has 17

Excellent cows. Sire selection is based on smaller stature, fertility, lower milk volume with higher milk components, longevity, disease resistance, with a focus on feet and legs. Favourite sires used in the Waikato Farm herd are VFOSKE, Peterslund, Botans, Dragomir, and Sydfrem, who have delivered daughters which perform without fuss in the herd. The Reds, Friesians and cross-breds run in the same herd. “We only split them for herd testing,” Mr Green said. “They complement each other, though the Reds are more aggressive feeders. There aren’t many Friesians in the first couple of feeding rounds because the Reds are really pushy.” Based on similar amounts fed, the Reds match the other breeds in milk solids production. The farm’s peak came in 2013-14, achieving close to 700 kg/Ms per cow, though poor springs in recent years have reduced that figure. Overall the farm produces six million litres and rears 150 heifer calves on whole milk from the vat. Mr Green is now a convert to the Aussie Reds. “It took me a while to get used to the Reds because we hadn’t dealt with them before, but I really like them now,” he said. “They’re very strong and healthy and very protective of their calves; very mothering compared to the Holsteins.” Their fertility is high, with Dairy Data for the past three years showing the herd averaged 1.73 to 1.79 straws of semen per pregnancy. The farm has a good standing in the industry, with young bulls sold for progeny testing and has exported Aussie Red heifers to Vietnam, Philippines and Pakistan. His contact in Pakistan now milks a herd of 2000 and is still milking daughters of two bulls he talked Mr Green into selling when selecting red heifers. Mr Green said conference delegates would see the entire herd. “All the Reds, Friesians and cross-breds will be in one herd, which is how we farm,” he said. More than 100 people are expected to attend the conference and tour, with registrations already confirmed from seven countries along with Australian delegates. For more information and to register contact event organiser Kylie Boston before February 1 on 0407 231547 or email kylie.smc@bigpond.com.


LOCAL SPORT NATIONAL BASEBALL SPOTLIGHT ON MOUNT GAMBIER The countdown is on to the highly anticipated Adelaide Bite-Auckland Tuatara four match Australian Baseball League series to be played at Mount Gambier’s Blue Lake Sports Park and the facility’s upgrades are well in hand. Set to place the facility in the national spotlight with television coverage and live streaming, the venue now looks fit to host the elite series. It has been a whirlwind few weeks since the four match series was secured and almost all that is left, is for people to support the event by heading to diamond one and watching some of the best baseballers in the world go at it. “It’s only about six weeks since the League and the City of Mount Gambier were approached to host the series,” event coordinator Michael Summers said. “The two competing teams should be pleased with the venue and the local league are hoping that team management will see fit to bring the series back to Mount Gambier, maybe on an annual basis.” League president Ben Green is now encouraging everyone to head out to Blue Lake Sports Park to take in the atmosphere and skill of the Australian Baseball League competition. “It will

showcase the game of baseball in Mount Gambier and also shows what the local baseball community can do when it pulls together to promote baseball at the highest of standards,” he said. South stalwart Bruce Morale has been at the forefront of the work out at local baseball headquarters and he has been thrilled with the support at working bees. ”All the boxes seem to have been ticked as far as the required upgrades are concerned,” he said. “We are well ahead of schedule with the work to be done and a grounds person from the ABL will be here early next week to re-build the pitching mound on the main diamond.” Auckland Tuatara are currently fourth with a four win, 11 loss ratio in the Northeast Division, while in the Southwest division, the Adelaide Bite sit third, with a 9-7 win-loss record. The Adelaide Bite licence is owned by the Adelaide Crows and it is believed that a number of the Crows management team will be in Mount Gambier for the event. While much of the hands on labour has been completed by baseball volunteers, wthe Mount Gambier Baseball League also wishes to thank

the Mount Gambier City and Council and a raft of corporate sponsors, who have jumped on board to ensure the event goes ahead. Those sponsors include Commodore on the Park, Peter Jennings Pumps, Precision Security, Blue Lake Caddy Shack, William Buck, SE Motor Rewinds, NBC Financial Services, Joannes Expresso, South Eastern Hotel, Andrew Bruhn Sheet Metal, JT Profile, F45 Gym, Baxter Hire, Williams Crane Hire, Exchange Printers,

Cleanaway, K&S, She’s Apples, BKM, Stuckey Electrical, Gambier Electronics, MGFF, HitFM/Triple M and The Distributors. The fisrt game is this Friday at 7pm; game two is at 4pm on Saturday with game three at 7pm that night and the final game on Sunday at 1pm. Full catering is available at the ground. BYO alcohol is strictly forbidden and there will be designated wet areas.

STRONG RESULTS FOR MARTIAL ACADEMY STUDENTS Twelve fighters from the Mount Gambier Martial Arts Academy have returned from the CKI One Match Challenge in Melbourne earlier this month with some strong results. It was a more inexperienced contingent than Sensei Greg Povey has taken before but it proved a great learning experience, especially for those who had not

worked much in full contact fighting. We’re proud of all our students who competed,” Sensei Povey said. “For the students who competed it was a great test of their character and I’m sure they all learnt something about themselves. The ones who won all showed great poise with their timing, body positioning and speed while also having a good balance between offence and defence.” Sensei Charlene Riley, Liam Povey and Lachlan Clements were the three competitors who won their fight. The other students who competed were James Scott, Zoe Parham Hawke, Riley Hink, Summer Williams, Sienna Hawke, Karl Leggett, Layla Hawke, Zahn Batty and Lachie McCann. The Dojo is a great breeding ground for full contact fighters producing many champions since it opened almost 40 years ago and has South Australia’s most experienced Kyokushin Karate Instructor Sensei Greg Povey at its disposal. Left - Zahn Batty gets some words of advice from Sensei Greg Povery after his first full contact fight.

LOCAL SPORT FINAL ROUND OF SOFTBALL FOR 2018 ALMOST BEATS WILD WEATHER Warriors White notched up another win, coming over the top of Wanderers in the last innings after Wanderers led for the majority of the match. Imogen Walker held Wanderers with her pitching, giving up only four safe hits and striking out nine. Jenna Burston dominated the left side of the diamond with two hits, with another two to consistent first baser Taylor Pearson. Justine Koop chipped in with two hits including scoring the go ahead run and snagging crucial fly balls at left field. Fiona Finch continues to have a sound season for Wanderers, earning herself a safe hit, as did Jo Hart, Em Hart and Trish Seagar. Jessica Hillman for white had another hit to right field, and Walker also had a single. In the match between Warriors Blue and Concordes United, Dana Jones for United bounced back on the pitcher’s mound after being hit in the chest by a Bella Morale laser last week. United struggled to break through the pitching of Leyna Bruggemann, and Warriors Blue showed a vast improvement on recent games in the field. Raquel Sneath caught well in the heat for Warriors, and also got two hits before coming from the ground injured. Ever consistent Nicole Vause added another double to her hitting tally and Simone McDonald, Courtney Hansen and Leanne Mullan also had hits for Warriors. In the end Warriors ran out comfortable victors, 10-2. Concordes and Demons got off to a great start in the 3pm game, knowing it was going to be a race against time to get their match completed before the weather closed in. In the first innings Concordes scored immediately, thanks to a two bagger from Jo Hopgood followed by excellent team batting to advance her home. Demons struck back almost immediately however, with safe hits to Mackenzie Millard and Anna Livingston, who were then brought home thanks to a lovely three bagger from Cody Manning. Concordes got out of the innings however without any further damage, and from here the score remained 2-1 until the weather gods finally prevailed and the game was abandoned due to lightning. It was a very closely contested affair, and Concordes will take great encouragement from holding the heavy hitters of Demons to only six hits over four innings. Sam Brown continued her red hot form on the mound for Concordes, and Livingston did a great job pitching for Demons. Best for Demons was Mackenzie Millard with three safe hits and a solid game catching in difficult weather conditions. The league now takes a break for Christmas and New Year, however the Mount Gambier representative team continues to train hard in readiness for the Australian day weekend State Country

Championships. Mount Gambier won the A Grade trophy this year, and playing coach Leyna Bruggemann will be hoping to defend the title with her team come the end of January. RESULTS Warriors Blue 10 (R. Sneath 2; S. McDonald, N. Vause, C. Hansen, L. Mullan) d Concordes United 2 (D. Jones, J. Beck); Demons 2 (Mackenzie Millard 3; I. Morale, A. Livingston, C.

DYNASTY or NASTY I’ve been following with interest the American sports shows as they suggest the potential ‘end of an era’ of the Golden State Warriors basketball team and the New England Patriots football team. It’s a little premature to write either team off but plenty of people want to.

One thing I feel is consistent with all great sporting dynasties is the team involved is obviously idolised by their own supporters and generally hated by everybody else for ‘ruining the competition’ and keeping their own side out in the cold for so long. Professional sports leagues have introduced the likes of salary caps and draft picks in an attempt to ensure a competitive balance in their competition and would like nothing more than for a different team to win each year Personally, I can’t help but admire the ability of these teams to stay motivated and take on all challengers week after week, year after year and prefer the notion that other teams need to improve to meet the standard rather than dilute the best team. It got me thinking as to what sporting teams on a local level have been able to sustain success for the longest period of time. The first teams that spring to mind are both the Kalangadoo and Millicent A grade netball teams. Both teams seem like they have been the team to beat forever. Kalangadoo has won 22 of the past 25 A Grade titles on offer and contested every season decider, while Millicent is on a run of 10 consecutive flags, having lost only three games in that period. Warriors softball has a Kalangadoo-like dynasty in Mount Gambier softball and International has an imperious record in the local soccer association. Then you have the decades of greatness, ironically both in the ‘90s – Mundulla securing nine flags in 11 seasons, including seven consecutive titles in the KNTFL, and South Gambier dominating Western Border football, securing eight flags in 11 years, including five in a row to round out the 20th century.

LADY LUCK CAN BE CRUEL Tragic news for Carlton co-captain Sam Docherty tearing his ACL for the second time during pre-season training. Docherty, an all –Australian defender in 2017 missed the entire 2018 season and will now miss the 2019 season. At 25 years of age he is in the prime years of his football career. It’s a cruel reminder that, no matter how dedicated and professional an athlete is, lady luck plays a part.

AT A GLANCE KIMBERLEY’S INSPIRATIONAL STORY LOOKING TO FORCE REAL CHANGE Independent MP Troy Bell said he hopes Mount Gambier double-transplant recipient Kimberley Telford’s success story will inspire more South Australians to sign up for organ donation. Earlier this year, Mrs Telford was the first patient in South Australia to undergo a kidney and pancreas transplant at the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH), after suffering with Type 1 diabetes for 16 years. After highlighting her story in a motion to State Parliament during Donate Life week, Mr Bell said he was pleased to see Kimberley doing well and back home with her family. “It’s incredible to see how much Kimberley’s life has changed in just a few short months – she’s an inspiration to many,” Mr Bell said. “Without illness and dialysis being a constant presence in her life, the Telford family are now able to share a family Christmas together and plan for the future.” Following her transplant operation, Mrs Telford has become a strong advocate for organ donation, urging more South Australians to register. Mr Bell supported Mrs Telford’s stance, saying this year he had called on the State Government to investigate the effectiveness of ‘opt out’ legislation to boost SA’s organ donation rates.

“It’s a fact that less than two per cent of people who die in hospital will be able to donate their organs and a successful transplant depends on all the factors matching up perfectly,” he said. “A larger pool of donors will mean a greater chance of that occurring. However, any legislation in this area should be very carefully considered and I believe there is the opportunity to have a wider debate on this subject with experts in the field.” Mr Bell said he has written to the Minister for Health and Wellbeing Stephen Wade, seeking an update on his successful motion. Meeting the RAH medical staff behind Kimberley’s double-transplant last week, Mr Bell praised the transplant team, led by Professor Toby Coates. “The RAH is just the third hospital in the nation performing this type of surgery

so in this area, we have a world class team operating right here in South Australia.,” he said. “I hope reading Kimberley’s story inspires more South Australians to take five minutes out of their day and sign up for the Australian Organ Donation Register. It’s a decision which may positively impact the lives of up to eight other people at a time of need.” Sign up at the Australian Organ Donor Registry at https://www. humanservices.gov.au/individuals/ services/medicare/australian-organdonor-register Above - Professor Toby Coates, Josh, Kimberley and Brenton Telford, Member for Mount Gambier Troy Bell and Minister for Health and Wellbeing, Stephen Wade at the Royal Adelaide Hospital earlier this month. lifestyle1.net | 38

COUNCIL INNOVATION EARNS AWARD Wattle Range Council has received recognition from the Local Government Association Workers Compensation Scheme (LGAWCS) for innovation in risk management following the development of a purpose built kerb lifting mechanism for use in maintenance operations. Council was presented with the Regional Award for Best Practice in Work Health and Safety for the solution designed and developed to protect workers from injury when a suitable option could not be found for purchase on the market. “When consulting with our outside workforce, kerbing was identified as one of the higher risk manual handling tasks that was routinely undertaken” Council’s chief executive officer Ben Gower said. “Extensive discussion

ensued with many options and potential solutions being explored. Eventually, the concept of a ‘kerb lifter’ attachment evolved after brainstorming with the work group. The solution that the team has developed is simple, practical, efficient and most importantly lowers the risk of manual handling injury.” The award, announced at the 2018 LGA Conference dinner in Adelaide, was accepted on behalf of council by Mr Gower and included a $5000 prize. Above - Wattle Range Council’s chief executive officer Ben Gower congratulates maintenance team member Robert Gardenier and manager operations Graham Knaggs on the award win.

Meatloaf thought two out of three wasn’t bad and for Member for Mount Gambier Troy Bell, he’ll be hoping the Mount Gambier electorate thinks seven out of 17 isn’t bad – in fact, with three years still to tick the other 10 items of his to do list, the independent MP is travelling quite well. “What I wanted to do when I got into politics was set a clear plan for the next four years,” Mr Bell said. “It’s really easy to get pulled from one issue to another issue and you can lose focus on what you actually want to achieve.” So he put that plan in writing (see page five for a friendly reminder). “That way people can hold me to account,” he said. “They can see what I said I was hoping to achieve and what I do achieve.” Top of his list was securing funding for the meningococcal B vaccine and that is the achievement of which he is most proud as 2018 draws to a close. “To get that $30million is definitely the highlight of the year,” he said. “That was a campaign raised by a local lady who had a nephew that died of meningococcal B and this region has a higher than average rate of deaths from meningococcal B so I took that up. It certainly wasn’t just me, it was a collective effort.”

The regional health boards fight was another battle he is pleased to have won and a battle that dates back to his time with the Liberal Party. “Local health facilities are connected to their communities,” Mr Bell said. “Regional health boards are a very important structural change that we’ll see with hospitals. Nurses and doctors do a wonderful job but this is about the administration and structures that support the hospitals.”

The 10 year fracking ban was another one of those long standing battles that could finally be placed in the win column. “It gives everybody certainty for the next 10 years,” he said. “It was a commitment I had given this community and I am happy to have been able to deliver on that.” Mr Bell has already made headway on mobile phone blackspots and there will be even more movement in that space in the next 12-18 months. “There has been a massive improvement in connectivity for mobile phone coverage in this area,” he said. Mr Bell is also expecting the appointment of an independent auditor into forestry sale to also be ticked off the list in the next 12 months and of course, the first part of 2019 will be tied up in chasing funding for the Mount Gambier Community and Recreation Hub if the community poll supports moving ahead with the $39.1million dollar development. His continuing fight over epilepsy funding, inspired by the story of Ella Gray and her mother Katherine Height, who are at the forefront of the funding push. “I am hoping we might have an announcement in that space too in the next 12 months,” Mr Bell said.
