Elite Supplements has been providing Australians with an extensive range of supplements and the best customer service since 2008. They are next level in terms of what they provide our customers. They invest into your health, fitness and well being. Elite Supplements is the holy grail of sports supplements. Stocking the biggest and baddest range, including the most popular international and Australian brands - they cater to every lifestyle, goal and health need no matter of your fitness level or profession. Jason Steen & Jessica Von Stanke have always lead quite an active lifestyle but after joining up to F45 in 2017 they rediscovered a new love for health and fitness and they got back into their training and supplement routines. Their results had people at the gym asking for their advice and what supplements they used, and how they would use it. They suddenly realised

there was a gap in the market and they looked into opening up an Elite Supplements outlet in Mount Gambier. “People were looking for advice and information so it just made sense,” Jessica said. And so on November 17 this year, the active couple – Jason is a former P.T, footballer and hockey player and Jessica is a netballer – opened Elite Supplements Mt Gambier. The wellstocked family run & owned store offers health and sports supplements, protein powders, pre-workout options, fat burners, stress busters, sleep enhancers, vegan options, electrolytes, carbs, drink bottles and shakers, as well as advice from Jessica and Jason, who can talk you through all your supplement needs. “People really do see incredible results.,” Jessica said.”For help with recovery, losing weight, improving quality of sleep and helping your body perform at its best, no matter what form of exercise you are involved in.”

As of February, Jessica and Jason will also be stocking five varieties of the pre-packaged, ‘gym challenge Meals’ It will be a first served basis with no preorders required. The couple was hands on with setting up the store, tackling the painting themselves, constructing the shelving and Jason getting some of the handyman work done himself. They already have a strong relationship with F45 Training and members are offered a 10% discount when shopping at Elite Supplements. They are looking to expand those relationships with local gyms and also want to encourage athletes across all sports to investigate the world of supplements and how it can help their personal performance. While the range of the Mount Gambier’s store stock is already vast, Jessica and Jason can order anything from the Elite Supplements range for customers. “We have already had heaps of support from

the community and we are looking forward to helping even more people,” Jason said. “We know the values of great customer service and would love the opportunity to have you as a customer. Our goal is to improve health and better the lifestyle of the community.” Bring in this copy in for a 20% off your first purchase with Elite Supplements Mount Gambier.

ROBE BOAT SHOW CONTINUES TO IMPRESS When the peak industry body anoints your event as the best boat show outside a capital city, you know you’re on a winner and the 2019 Robe Boat Show is only looking to cement that reputation with another bumper two days on January 19 and 20. Event coordinator Jamie Aitken helped establish the boat show in 2011, borne out of a think tank with Robe District Council “We had this beautiful marina that was underutilised,” Jamie said. “It is basically the best marina on the South Australian and Victorian coastline and I was asked to advise the council on ways to energise sales of the berths.” And that is how the idea of the Robe Boat Show was conceived and it has delivered in spades and become a wonderful community event that is so much more than a mecca for boat lovers. “It has become part of the calendar for people from as far away as Hamilton, Warrnambool and Adelaide,” Jamie said. “And our exhibitors come from all over as well, including Melbourne.” Two years ago the Boating Industry Association took a close look at what the Robe Boat Show was offering and they were so impressed they began to promote the event to their 2000-strong membership and that has also seen the event grow in stature. “That basically covers everyone in the boat industry,” Jamie said. “It really has taken on a life of its own.” Jamie believes the fact the Robe Boats Show is a free, family friendly

event that offers food, entertainment and has introduced a real lifestyle element, incorporating caravans and off road vehicles has made the event so popular with locals and visitors alike. “We needed to make it about more than just boats and fishing tackle and that has clearly broadened its appeal,” Jamie said. The event generally attracts 3000 people over the two days, which

run from 9am to 4pm on both days. The biggest challenge for Jamie and the other event organisers has been keeping the event fresh and after last year’s introduction of the Dream Machines, this year it will be Speed Machines as the boat show looks to cross-promote the 2019 World Championship Selection Race that will see water skiing coming to the seaside

village on February 23 and 24. “They are basically the V8 supercars of the water,” Jamie said. It will see the sport’s best competing a mere 100m off the Robe coastline, reaching speed of 150kmh between the Robe Hotel and Long Beach. “There will be 70-80 boats and each of them bring a team of around 10 people, just like a V8 supercar team so we are looking to promote that

event at the boat show,” he said. The food and entertainment also continues to grow and with the vendors all boasting colourful caravans, the 2019 set up will resemble the wagons circling in the Wild West with all the colourful food vendor vans forming a boundary to the central entertainment stage. The 2019 Robe Boat Show will see 18 exhibitors that will see around 25 boats on display, as well as half a dozen caravans and an array of jet skis and off road vehicles. “There will also be some terrific sports cars including Mustangs and Jaguars,” Jamie said. As always, a huge range of fishing tackle and accessories will be front and centre of the show and it does not just focus on the recreational fisher but the professional fisherman as well. “We make sure we have the huge engine manufacturers here as it provides a rare opportunity for professional fishermen to be able to see the full range that they need in their boats right on their doorstep,” Jamie said. “The manufacturers certainly see the benefit – we had one guys sell $750,000 worth one year.” And while the original intent of the boat show was to showcase the marina, it has expanded to be a valuable tourism marketing tool, as well as showcasing local produce, which is a strong focus of the food, wine and beer on offer over the January 19 and 20 event. “And while things wind down around 4pm, the good thing is people can then head to the local hotels and restaurants to see more of Robe and enjoy the local produce and wine.”

LIMESTONE COAST PHOTOGRAPHERS CAPTURE VETERANS Two volumes of books featuring 6500 portraits of Australia’s WWII Veterans was donated last month to the National Library of Australia by the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP). The books are the result of an AIPP initiative that spanned two years and involved more than 400 photographers committed to capturing Australia’s remaining WWII veterans. Limestone Coast photographers Frank Monger, from Mount Gambier, and Jacqui Bateman, from Furner, photographed around 170 of the war veterans over an 18 month period. Tintinara based Deanna Dunbar photographed more than 100 veterans who lived in the Upper South East, Murraylands and Fleurieu Peninsula. Jacqui photographed most of the veterans living around Millicent, Kingston, Naracoorte, Penola and everywhere in between, while Frank covered Mount Gambier and the Western Districts of Victoria, including, Portland, Warrnambool, Hamilton, Casterton, Edenhope, Nhill and Dimboola. Deanna was lucky enough to be able to attend the handover of images at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. “It was a very moving experience,” she said. “As professional photographers in our own right this project gave us the opportunity to work collaboratively on a national project that will survive in Australia’s history,” Mr Monger said. “All of us were humbled to be a part of this wonderful project.” The Reflections books were inspired

by Momento Pro’s co-founder Geoff Hunt who approached the AIPP in 2016 with an offer to extend the project’s legacy, by preserving the portraits in an archival book. The Reflections books were a collaborative effort that involved Momento Pro, AIPP, Atkins Pro lab in Adelaide and Starleaton, who all donated time, products and services for the project. The production of the two-books and enclosing box was a mammoth task, involving input from Momento Pro seven staff over a period of four weeks. To ensure the books’ maximum lifespan, the 550 pages were printed

using 10-colour museum-grade inks onto 100% cotton rag, coated in archival spray, then bound in a genuine leather cover. The final box set weighed in at 16 kilograms. “We were honoured to gift the Reflections books to the National Library of Australia, and it is our greatest wish that the memory of our WWII veterans will live on for centuries through the pages of these books,” Mr Hunt said Dr Marie-Louise Ayres, DirectorGeneral of the National Library of Australia said she was honoured to accept the books on behalf of the Australian people. “Books such as these are such a

special form of collection item, allowing previously untold stories to be told or unseen faces to be seen,” Dr Ayres said. National coordinator Louise Bagger, from Adelaide, described the books as the “grand finale” of the Reflections Project. “The books represent first and foremost, recognition of the significant contribution given by those who fought for the cause during WWII,” she said. Dr Brendan Nelson, Director of the Australian War Memorial, said the books were a remarkable gift given to the nation. “There’s a lot to learn from that generation, and that generation is

Dr Nelson says many of the WWII veterans photographed have since passed but will now be remembered in the pages of the Reflections books. “Australians are free because of the generation from which our WWII veterans come.“ Above (left) - Mount Gambier photographer Frank Monger with Furner photographer Jacqui Bateman.

WORLD CLASS PERFORMANCE A treat for Limestone Coast music lovers with the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne performing at Naracoorte’s St Pauls Anglica Church on January 14. The 8pm performance is a chance to experience one of the world’s best musical ensembles. The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne gives around 300 concerts a year around the globe and listeners throughout the world look forward to a musical encounter with their exceptionally talented musicians. Founded in Cologne, a city that is famous throughout the world for its University of Music and its musical and instrumental teaching, the chamber orchestra takes advantage of that pool of talent. The appeal of the program lies in the balance of popular and unknown works from a wide variety of musical epochs. This sees familiar greats like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Vivaldi in dialogue with works from people such as Sergei Prokofieff through to the “King of Tango” Astor Piazzolla. Tickets are available at Naracoorte Newsagency.

SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAM HAS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) has returned to the Glenelg Shire this month to host a series of children’s activities as part of Council’s free school holiday program. The NGV Kids on Tour program offers a number of art and design workshops over the summer holidays, providing children the chance to create their own 3D artworks, collages and a replica of their town. The workshops are inspired by past NGV exhibition, New York! New York! for Kids, as well as current exhibitions, Escher X nendo | Between Two Worlds, and Being Human: William Wegman. Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said the partnership would give local children the same opportunities as those in Melbourne to participate in the gallery’s summer programs. “It is fantastic to be able to host activities of such world class standards right here in our shire. Families will be able to access quality workshops run by the state’s leading WINDFALL ON OFFER FOR COMMUNITY GROUPS Wattle Range Council is inviting community groups and sporting clubs from across the region to apply for funding in round two of council’s 2018/19 Financial Assistance Grants program. Applications for second round funding in Council’s grants program opened last month and will be accepted until January 18. Funding of more than $26,000 was allocated to 15 separate organisations when the previous council considered round one applications at its September meeting. Wattle Range Council Mayor Des Noll urged local groups to consider making application in this round, with funding up to $2000 available to eligible groups. “Council’s annual grants program provides much needed support to our local community and sporting groups,” Mayor Noll said. “The funds enable these volunteer organisations to maintain and upgrade their equipment and facilities or host events that benefit our region. These groups play a vital role in strengthening our community, making Wattle Range a great place to live.” Application guidelines and forms are available on council’s website at www.wattlerange.sa.gov.au/councilfags and enquiries can be made by phone on (08)8733 0900 or email to council@wattlerange.sa.gov.au

art gallery to entertain their young ones over summer without the burden of travel or cost, it is a great outcome for all,” Cr Rank said. “The Glenelg Shire will be one of 67 locations across the state to participate in the NGV program, a partnership we have held for the past three years with enormous success. But if art isn’t for your children there are a range of other exciting activities on offer to including mini golf, movie night and pool parties. With so much on offer these summer holidays I encourage all families to book in early to avoid disappointment – you won’t want to miss out on these free activities.” The school holiday program is open to all Glenelg Shire school aged children up to year eight. Bookings are now open and can be made by calling each activity provider. For further information, or to view a copy of the holiday program, please visit www. glenelg.vic.gov.au/HolidayProgram

SUMMER FUN AT THE RAIL LANDS Koonara Wines is hosting a mid summer evenings dream, bringing its food and wine pop up bar back to The Rail in Mount Gambier on Friday, January 18. Koonara’s Dru Reschke said the classic food, wine, and music set up that locals love will be back, with a few added touches. “This year, we’re be debuting our new stemless unbreakable wine glasses,” said Dru. “Similar to our original unbreakables, these will be available to keep for $5 on the night. It would be great to see some new faces at this event, and I hope we can bring the community together providing a fun and relaxed space to meet new people.”

The Side Project will be supporting the event with refreshing local beer and cider brews, and a tasty line-up of food trucks will be on site to cater to the whole family, including gluten free and vegetarian options. “We’re also encouraging people to join our new Koonara Club by pre booking for the event online,” Dru said. “For $10 you’ll receive the original Koonara glass filled with your favourite wine to add your collection, 25% off your next drink, and fast tracked service on the night. As much as we loved rugging up, and getting rained on, for our Winter Warmer event last year, nothing really tops a balmy summer’s evening with food, a cold drink in hand, catching up with old friends and making new ones. The kids can be kept busy with face painting and games, so bring a picnic rug, and we’ll take care of the rest.” The event begins at 4pm, with Warnambool musician Michael Ferguson entertaining, and Mount Gambier’s own DJ Justin will take the tunes til sundown around 9pm. Gold coin donation on entry will be donated to the Stand Like Stone Foundation. To book for the Koonara Club, visit koonara.com or the Koonara Wines Facebook page.

COUNCIL INSTALS LIFE SAVING EQUIPMENT FOR COMMUNITY The Naracoorte Lucindale Council recently installed public access Automated External Defibrillators at the Naracoorte Town Hall and Naracoorte Swimming Lake with the hope that it could save lives for the local community in the case of a sudden cardiac arrest. The Naracoorte Town Hall and Naracoorte Swimming Lake were chosen due to their high levels of visitation. The Naracoorte Town Hall also has the advantage of being located in the CBD. When the Naracoorte Town Hall is open the defibrillator can be accessed by members of the public as well as people utilising the hall. One of the benefits of having defibrillators in a central and / or public location is that they can be accessed and used even by someone with no medical training. The defibrillator using step-by-step voice commands will guide you through the process of treating a victim of suspected sudden cardiac arrest. “The defibrillators have been installed as a result of requests from the community when Council developed its 2018/2019 budget and with the hope that they could save lives,” Mayor Erika Vickery OAM said. Other locations that council is aware of that have defibrillators are the Lucindale Area School, Naracoorte Hotel, Naracoorte Golf Club, Naracoorte Mens Shed, Naracoorte Smallbore Rifle Club and OTR Naracoorte. The Naracoorte Health Service has a portable defibrillator that can be borrowed for large events and functions. lifestyle1.net | 08

BRINGING THE CELLAR DOOR EXPERIENCE TO THE FOOD INDUSTRY After four years in business, local producer Robe Dairy opened its farm from December to visitors looking to buy milk, cheese and yoghurt straight from the farmer. The farm gate swings open Fridays and Saturdays 10am-2pm, increasing to Tuesdays through to Saturdays throughout this month. Owners David and Julie Hinchliffe wanted to wait until “the time was right” to set up the region’s first farm gate “cellar” door, when they had a range of cheeses to sell and the shop would complement their existing sales channels. “Everything is made here by the two of us, using milk from our very small herd of Jersey cows,” said Julie. “We offer up to six cheeses, the choice reflecting the season and which cheeses are ripe and ready to eat. Traditional French-style cheeses are our main

focus and everything takes time and is done by hand. Some of our cheeses are made using heirloom cultures which are slower acting, and ripening techniques all require a great deal of care and monitoring.” Julie and David say their St Clair Brie is set to be their biggest seller this summer. “We make our St Clair as a traditional French-size wheel, it’s around two and a half kilograms,” Julie said. “The large size enables complex, sophisticated flavours to develop. It’s been a favourite with food writers and cheese critics.” Julie says the shop will also play a role in reducing food waste. “Some cheeses are just too good to go to the pigs,” she said. “We can offer odd sizes, offcuts and larger sizes of St Clair for special occasions. It will be perfect for

seasonal cheeses and limited editions as well as other goodies such as our quince paste. We’ve done lots of farmers markets which have helped us gauge what people like best.” Julie says she and David have deliberately chosen to keep a basic industrial feel to their little shop, rather than opt for a souvenir or coffee shop with greater opening times and staffing demands. “We want people to feel they are coming to our little factory, to the farm and to us, the family who runs it,” Julie said. “Visitors meet and are served by us.” Robe Dairy recently opened an online shop and mailing list, to help it reach visitors from interstate. The pair says this will be something they grow slowly, offering a way for people who visit to continue their connection with the little dairy. Julie says the shop and online sales will complement Robe Dairy’s existing sales channels which include directly supplying shops like Robe Foodland, She’s Apples, Frewville Foodland and the Smelly Cheese Shop in Adelaide. “Direct sales through a farmgate and online shop are essential if we are to avoid going down the conventional route of using a ‘middle man’ distributor,” she said. “We are too small for that and our cheeses are not longlife stabilised cheeses, so it’s important we work very closely with the staff who are managing and stocking the cheese bars each day. This leaves us free to make the kind of cheese we want to make, not the long-life supermarket

style. The shops and restaurants we work with understand that we are a seasonal product. We even dry our cows up once a year and take time off. Some of our products are limited edition and seasonal, we make them at times of the year when they are more enjoyed, or when our milk is plentiful, or simply when we feel like making something different. We only produce a small amount of milk. At the moment we are milking just seven cows.” Over the past four years, many

people have phoned or written to Robe Dairy asking them to please open a shop at the farm. “We look forward to meeting these people who have waited so patiently,” Julie said. “It will be great to chat and give them some of our cheeses to try.” Check the flyers around Robe, visit www.robedairy.com or contact the Robe Tourist Information Centre for full details on January opening times.

AT A GLANCE PUBLIC ACCESS DEFIBRILLATOR INSTALLED IN MOUNT GAMBIER OTR and St John Ambulance SA have joined together to install its 11th public access defibrillator at the Mount Gambier OTR store with the hope that it could save lives for the local community in the case of sudden cardiac arrest. Mount Gambier St John members held a community information and CPR session at the store to commemorate the installation of the life saving equipment. In May of this year, the OTR and St John Ambulance SA came together and committed to install defibrillators in regional OTR stores across the state with an aim to assist in saving lives of those in country communities across South Australia. OTR chief operating officer Peter Piliouras was proud to be part of this important partnership with St John

Ambulance SA which will ultimately save lives of South Australians and support regional communities. In Novemberlast year, OTR Naracoorte was the first South East based store to have a defibrillator installed. OTR is also supporting the Mount Gambier and surrounding community in the South East, providing much-needed food relief in partnership with Foodbank. Since July 1 kast year year, more than 37,000kg of food or 74,000 meals have been rescued across the region by Foodbank. The food and essential items collected from OTR stores supports 25 welfare agencies and community groups like Vinnies SA in Mount Gambier and 24 schools with their local school breakfast programsl. Foodbank also supports 20 struggling families every day who shop at the local Mt Gambier Foodbank food hub.

HOOKED ON PORTLAND SNARES CELEBRITY CHEF Television chef and sustainability advocate Paul West will headline Hooked on Portland celebrations this year, adding a new food and lifestyle element to the two-day festival. West of River Cottage Australia fame will appear in the Foodie and Fishing Hub during the Australia Day weekend festivities to provide cooking demonstrations and to discuss the importance of sustainability and sourcing regional supplies. Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank expected thousands of fans to flock to Portland to see West in action. “Paul West is one of this country’s most loved chefs and he has told us he can’t wait to cook with our locally caught seafood and fresh produce,” Cr Rank said. “Many will recognise the popular Tasmanian foodie from his cooking and lifestyle show River Cottage Australia which aired on Foxtel’s Lifestyle Channel and SBS. The show followed West’s journey growing an abundance of farm-fresh food to cook and share with his local community. We are thrilled to be able to welcome him to Portland for the very first time; he is huge drawcard for the festival and brings with him a national audience base of loyal fans and fellow sustainable living advocates.” As part of the Hooked on Portland festivities, West will show audience members how to cook a series of delicious meals using local produce. He will also lead a panel of industry experts to explore the regional food trail in south west Victoria and to provide insights into how to best access the farm to plate experience. “Eventgoers will also have the opportunity to meet the celebrity chef at his book signing session which I trust will attract hundreds of foodie-fans,” Cr Rank said. “I have no doubt the Food and Fishing Hub will be a bustle of activity. Last year’s Hooked on Portland event attracted more than 10,000 people to town and generated more than $2.5 million in economic activity, supporting local businesses and generating local jobs. Furthermore, traders reported their biggest trading day of the summer season at the 2018 festival. I have no doubt the announcement of this headline cook will see tourist numbers continue to climb in 2019.” To keep up to date with all festival details and future announcements follow the Hooked on Portland Facebook page.

AT A GLANCE PARALYMPIAN TO HEADLINE GOLF FUNDRAISING DAY Inspirational Paralympic champion Kelly Cartwright will be special guest at Portland District Health’s 2019 charity golf event. While in Portland for the March 1, 2019 event, Ms Cartwright will present golf prizes and deliver a motivational dinner speech. Cancer survivor, Paralympic gold and silver medallist and multiple world record holder; Ms Cartwright was in 2012 named as athlete of the year- the first Paralympian to be given such an honour in Australia. In 2014 she was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for service to sport as a gold medallist in the 2012 London Paralympic Games. At 15, after being diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer in her right knee, Ms Cartwright had her right leg amputated in November 2004. After a painstaking three months of rehabilitation she was fitted with a prosthetic leg. Having learnt to walk again, and facing the reality that her netball career was over, she looked for a new direction - running. With a growing passion for running, Ms Cartwright aimed to become the best above-knee amputee 100m sprinter in the world. Her impressive list of achievements show she achieved that goal, with Australian, world and Paralympics championships and records in sprints, long jump and most recently power lifting. Ms Cartwright also became the first above-knee amputee woman to climb to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro

in 2009, and away from the track, she became a mum for the first time with Max born in 2016. She is also an ambassador for Make-A-Wish Foundation Australia, Rare Cancers Australia and The START Foundation assisting amputees to reach their sporting dream, and is in huge demand as a motivational speaker and a health and fitness model. PDH and the community have raised more than $120,000 from the previous six golf events. This money is always dedicated to specific medical equipment to enhance services to the community. The 2019 event will raise money to replace three defibrillators at $16,000 each. CEO Chris Giles said the new defibrillators would be life-saving pieces of equipment for critically-ill patients. The day will also feature hole-in-one competitions, music, food, auctions, raffles and lucky door prizes.

PORTLAND SET TO COME ALIVE FOR CRUISE SHIP VISITS The countdown has begun until cruise ship season hits Portland, with final preparations well underway to welcome two vessels to the city in the coming weeks. The MS Regatta will dock into Portland this Thursday carrying 650 international guests. The vessel is circumnavigating Australia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea from Sydney, with stopovers in Bali, Hamilton Island and Perth. The MS Regatta is followed by the Seven Seas Mariner five days later on Tuesday, January 15, which will carry 750 guests made up of largely American passengers. The Mariner also departs from Sydney and will travel down the west coast of Australia before arriving in Portland. Mayor Cr Anita Rank said the city was abuzz in anticipation. “The excitement has been building after months of extensive planning and preparation for these visits which bring huge economic benefits to our community, supporting local business and local jobs,” she said. “Previous cruise ship seasons have lifestyle1.net | 26

injected more than $1 million into the local economy, particularly into the hospitality and tourism sectors, and we predict these visits in January will once again provide a significant economic boost for local traders. Portland has become a destination of choice thanks to our great on-shore ratings, which has been largely achieved thanks to the significant efforts of our local community who have got behind this important tourism opportunity.” Cruise ship passengers will enjoy a range of offerings as soon as they disembark in Portland such as community markets; live music and cultural performances by the WindaMara Dancers. Passengers have also booked a range of local tours to local attractions such as Cape Bridgewater and Narrawong’s popular Timandra Gardens, a ride on the Cable Tram and Glenelg River cruising tours with a stopover at the Princess Margaret Rose Caves.

HAVE YOUR SAY ON THE RAIL LANDS The City of Mount Gambier is seeking community feedback on the shared cycling and walking paths at the Rail Trail to assess demand for additional infrastructure. The construction of the Rail Trail shared cycling and walking path through the heart of Mount Gambier is popular with the local community and visitors to the city. “It is regularly used by many residents for cycling and walking, for both recreation and commuting,” City of Mount Gambier environmental sustainability officer Aaron Izzard said. Mr Izzard said the key to the success of the Rail Trail is the fact that it is safe, easy to access and cyclists and walkers are clearly separated from motor traffic. “It is now timely that we actively seek feedback from the community on the Rail Trail shared cycling and walking paths and assess the appetite within our community for more of this type of infrastructure. Council already has a significant footpath program that caters for pedestrians. Expanding this program to include cycling could further assist our community to be more active and healthy.” Health issues due to insufficient physical activity throughout the Australian population, including Mount Gambier, have been well documented, with incidental exercise such as cycling or walking to get from A to B, identified as the most likely form of exercise to be maintained over the longer term. “A Queensland government study found that on average every $1.00 invested in cycling infrastructure returned almost $5.00 in health benefits, reduced traffic congestion and delivered other social and economic benefits,” Mr Izzard said. Council encourages the community to participate in the consultation process at: www.haveyoursaymountgambier. com.au/cycling “If you use the Rail Trail and have feedback and ideas about the shared cycling and walking paths, please go online and have your say,” Mr Izzard said. “You can have your input by completing a survey and dropping a pin on our interactive map to highlight strengths, weaknesses and improvement opportunities relating to cycling in Mount Gambier.” Survey participants can opt-in to go into the draw to win a $50 voucher from Daktari Sport, Mount Gambier. Consultation closes Friday, February 15.


KAREN COMMUINITY WELCOME NEW YEAR WITH TRADITIONAL CEREMONY Mount Gambier’s Karen and Karenni communities held a traditional celebration at the weekend as they welcomed in the Karen New Year at Mount Gambier North School with a day of traditional dance, food and music. Celebrated on January 5, the Karen New Year, which is Year 2758, marks the time when rice is planted in Myanmar (Burma) and has been counted since the Karen people arrived in Burma. More than 200 people attended the official celebrations, which was a free family event, as well as representative from the Nhill community and the International Karen Organisation president Kanemy Gunoo, who is based in Melbourne. The official proceedings included an acknowledgement of the site’s traditional owners, the Karen national anthem, the Australian national anthem, complete with the second verse, and a raft of special guest speakers and performances from the local and visiting Karen communities. Many attended the celebrations in traditional dress and an offering was taken to assist refugees from the Karen and Karenni communities still in Myanmar. A small band of local musicians played traditional Karen instruments as people arrived to the New year’s celebrations and, as is the case with so many cultures, the celebrations ended with the sharing of traditional food. The Karen people are believed to be one of the lost tribes of Israel, dating back to 2234BC in Babylon, before taking 37 years to reach their new home of Mongolia, where they lived for almost 200 years before becoming the first settlers to enter Burma (now known as Myanmar). It is since the 1940s that the Karen people have been a persecuted community in Burma, with many displaced Karen still in refugee camps on the Thai-Burma border, as well as many who have been fortunate enough to settle in the United States, England, Canada, Norway, Sweden and, of course, Australia. Mount Gambier has become one of the strongholds for the Karen and Karenni community and Member for Barker Tony Pasin acknowledged the

contribution they have made as one of the guest speakers at the celebrations. “I want to talk about the special contribution the Karen people make to my home, Mount Gambier, and to Australia,” Mr Pasin said. “The history of migrant settlement in Australia is one of delivery. People think that means delivering the migrants but really it is what they deliver for their family, their community and their new nation. Migrant settlement is a real partnership, a real partnership between those who come and those who are here to make a stronger community and nation. And that’s exactly what the Karen community in Mount Gambier has done. You’ve come to our community and you’ve strengthened our community – you’ve made it more resilient, and more fun, too, and thank you for your food.” The Karen drum, which is in integral part of the Karen and Karenni people’s traditions was also part of the ceremony, while a number of local vocalists and dancers took to the stage.

Thra Samuel, from the local Karen community, performed a traditional song.

KENT ROUNDS OUT SUCCESSFUL 2018 WITH VICTORY IN THE CHRISTMAS SHOOT Perfect weather conditions greeted the 87 shooters who nominated for the Christmas shoot at Burrungule park, this being the final event of 2018 plenty of Hams & turkeys were on offer courtesy of Collins Court Butchers and sponsors; South West Freight, South East Vets & Whitty Engineering. Jeremy Kent again found the consistency to claim the Gambier shooting supplies High Gun with 48/50. AA grade was taken out by Danny Bellinger 46/60 after a countback from Mark Fabris and Ron Rhook in third. A Grade also needed a countback for Tim Widdison to win from Ken Atkin with 45/50 and Brenton Ferguson finishing in third. Bruce Oakley won B Grade with 43/50 from Matt Crowe and Heath Telford. Al Scheidl took a commanding win in C grade with 40/50 from Rob Michalski and Steve Groen. Ernie Scheidl won the Seniors category with 43/50 from Wayne Evans and Neville Kent. Wayne Gurney 42/50 took out Veterans after a count back with Chris VonStanke Snr whilst Robert Simson rounded out the podium in third. The Ladies class was won by Tash Bellinger with 38/50 from Tamara VonStanke and Emma Lawford. Ben SPEEDWAY ACTION CONTINUES TO BUILD With the club’s premier stand alone annual event, the King’s Challenge, only days away, the Borderline Speedway has enjoyed a busy few weeks, hosting the World Series Sprintcars late last year and then a huge night of racing last Friday. The track hosted 25 cars in a battle for the South Australian Speedcar Championship – the 69th running of the title. The 30 lap A Main was uneventful with no stoppages and it was Victorian Matt Jackson who greeted the chequered flag first, followed by fellow Victorian Travis Mills and New South Welshman Nathan Smee rounding out the podium. A more niche brand of speedway of recent times, no local drivers have competed in speedcars since the 1970s but the quality racing on Friday night, showed why it is the oldest, and longest lasting class of racing in the industry. The wingless sprints was the biggest class of the night’s racing with 47 cars taking to the Borderline Speedway tack with the local interest surrounding Mitchell Broome, Kirby Hillyer, who has previously made his name in go karts, and Penola’s Michael Ross. Broome qualified on pole for the 30 lap A main with Hillyer also earning a place in the main race but in the end it was interstate raiders that ended up on the podium with Luke Storer finishing first, Alex Ross, second, and Luke Weel, third. Broome was the best of the locals, sneaking into the top 10 in ninth. The running of the Blue Lake Classic for street stocks was another highlight of Friday night’s program with 27 cars looking to claim the title. All of the drivers with local connections qualified for the A Main but in the end, reigning Australian champion and hometown hero Anthony Beare ended up second between two Ballarat based drivers – Brad McClure, who took out the Classic, and Mick Clarke, who finished third. There was plenty of interest for local fans, though, outside the podium finishers, with Jayden Edwards finishing fourth, Jeremy Weston in fifth and Steve Gartner in sixth. Mark Jennings, another of the street stock stars, hailing from this region, suffered a broken brake caliper with around four laps to race, when he was in the running to challenge for a podium finish. Many of those street stock drivers then headed to Hamilton Speedway to race Saturday but it was grim night with all but Steve Gartner able to finish. Beare suffered

mechanical failure, Edwards did some tyres and Jennings hit the wall in a night to forget for Borderline Speedway locals. Things did not go smoothly in the wingless sprints in Hamilton either, with Broome making the final but finishing 13th. The drivers that are set to race in the King’s Challenge will be finalised this week, with local Glenn Sutherland an unlikely starter after sustaining injuries in a road accident heading home from Victoria a couple of weeks ago, while reigning champion Steve Lines, who is currently leading the World Series Sprintcars with a 59 point advantage over Kerry Madsen and James McFadden in third, is coning off a solid showing in Brisbane, finishing fourth, after starting sixth on the grid in the A Main, behind US champion Donny Schatz at the weekend.

JAMIE DUNN TAKES OUT CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS At each monthly shoot of South East Field & Game, the Gambier Shooting Supplies High Gun qualifies for the end of year shoot off at the beginning of the Christmas shoot. Sporting clay Ttrgets were set by Neville Kent to test the shooters skills and with little margin for error becomes a test of mental strength whilst performing under pressure. Participants included Mark Fabris, Leigh Dunn, Jamie Dunn, Ken Atkin, Gavin Dyson, Jeremy Kent and Ernie Scheidl with Chris Wright missing through injury. Jeremy Kent uncharacteristically dropped two targets at the first pad whilst Dyson, Jamie Dunn & Ken Atkin looked in fine form. The targets were shot in the old style sporting layout and attracted a sizable crowd. Atkin dropped his last target of a tough simultaneous pair to miss out on a sudden death shoot off with Dyson & Jamie Dunn. Simultaneous pairs were used to determine a winner with Jamie Dunn holding his nerve to win with Dyson just faltering. Dunn claimed the honour of 2018 Champion of Champions sponsored by Elders Gambier Farm Supplies.

REPRESENTATIVE SOFTBALL SEASON HEATS UP The 72nd Women’s National Softball Championship is currently underway at Mirrabooka International Softball Stadium in Western Australia and all three softballers from the Hood family are part of the South Australian Starz line-up contesting the Gilley Shield. Tanya Hood is an assistant coach for the open women’s State team, while daughters Georgia and Amber are part of the playing roster. Georgia, normally selected for her pitching prowess has been battling a back injury but has still been batting in the early stages of the tournament, while Amber is a wonderful utility player, who can play catcher, but has also been utilised in the infield at second base. The SA team started with a win over Victoria and then a loss to the always strong Queensland line-up with the tournament running until January 11. Georgia is also in the Under 19 line-up due to head to Blacktown, in New South Wales, from January 20-26, and would be hopeful of returning to the pitcher’s mound for that tournament. The Mount Gambier Softball League will be sending a team to the South Australian Country Championships over the Australia Day weekend, heading to the West Beach event as defending champions, with the team to be announced next week.

LOCAL SPORT TEENAGE FOOTBALLERS FLYING HIGH IN 2019 It might not be the club of choice for either teenager but Mount Gambier’s Mitch Sims and Jake Walker are excited by the opportunity they have been given to be part of the Adelaide Crows Academy. Mitchell is a North Melbourne supporter and Jake bleeds black and white and the duo are two of 30 players selected to spend this year working with some of the top coaching and playing personnel from the Crows to improve their own football. Mitch and Jake already have two sessions under their belt and they can already see how this opportunity to work with the best young players in the State, and be guided by Crows officials is already having an impact. Mitchell, who is 14 and a student at Tenison Woods College started playing football as a seven year old, as did 14 year Jake Walker, who attends Mount Gambier High School, and both have already received a number of personal accolades in their short careers in the Western Border Junior Football League, as well as enjoying premiership success with South Gambier Football Club. For Mitchell, this is his first opportunity to train at a higher level since he was part of the SAPSASA State team, and he has his sights set on trialling for the Under 15 Schoolboys State team this year. For Jake, it is his first real foray into higher level work and he is thriving on the challenge. The duo was selected following the July championships, where they represented Glenelg with the announcement made late last year. The Crows Academy includes players from Glenelg, Sturt, North Adelaide and Central District, with the comparable Port Power Academy selecting players from West Adelaide, the Eagles, Norwood and Port Adelaide Magpies. The initial session was held on a 40 degree day so after AFLW Crows captain Chelsea Randall and Adelaide Crows Head of Football Brett Burton welcomed the group, they were escorted to the state-of-the-art indoor training facilities, complete with astro turf – the facilities the AFL players often utilise. “It was so cool, really awesome,” Mitch said. The group worked on ball skills un the guidance of newly appointed assistant coach and dual Sturt premiership

NEW YEAR BRINGS FRESH HOPE The turn of the new year brings with it renewed hope in the sporting fraternity, especially if your team under performed in 2018. You convince yourself that a) more luck with injury; b) new recruits; c) the growth in the younger players with another year under their belt or d) all of the above, will return your team to the promised land in 2019.

coach Marty Mattner and rising defensive star Tom Doedee. Mitch knew some of the 30 player squad from his SAPSASA days, while Jake saw some familiar faces from basketball, but they are clearly two of only a handful of regionally based players to earn a spot in the 2019 academy. The second session saw the coaching held mainly on the formerly hallowed turf of Football Park, incorporating tackling and some outside running drills, with the boys also having to complete a 2km time trial. Both boys have already identified fitness, especially endurance, as an area where they could significantly improve their game, while training with the State’s best young talent should see their skills and game sense also improve. The Crows Academy is earmarked to play two curtain raisers to AFL contests, including a showdown, and will also be trying the new AFLX – the T20 version of football. Brooke Tonon and Neave Delaney are part of the Crows Female Academy and Lifestyle1 will share their journey in next week’s issue.

TIGERS CEMENT TOP SPOT Senior baseball resumed at the weekend and Tigers consolidated their position at the top of the ladder with a comprehensive win over Federal. Tigers scored their first run in the top of the second inning when Jesse Foster crossed the plate on Ben Marcus’ safehit to leftfield. They added four more in the fourth dig with a two out rally. Marcus singled as did Mitch Crosbie and Riley Rolph whose hit saw Marcus cross the plate. Brayden Morton arrived at first on a strikeout passed ball loading the bases. Alex Harkness walked and scored Crosbie while Rolph crossed the plate on Brodie Foster’s fielders choice to shortstop whose throw to the catcher resulted in an error which saw Morton home. In the fifth Jesse Foster picked a base on ball and scored on Rolph’s second single to rightfield giving Tigers a six run to zero lead. Federal got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the seventh when Sam Shepherd singled to rightfield and scored on Clay Carpenter’s hit into an error at third base. In the top of the eighth Rolph walked as did Morton. Rolph scored on Brodie Foster’s hit into an error at second base which resulted in Morton also crossing for a run. Brodie Foster scored on Karl Ransom’s double into leftfield. The Demons pulled back another run in the bottom half of the eighth after Nathan Taylor walked and scored on Wade Chant’s two-bagger to

leftfield. Tigers piled on more runs in the top of the ninth. Crosbie was hit by a pitched ball, Rolph walked, Morton picked another base on ball, Harkness doubled scoring Crosbie and Jacob English who had replaced Rolph as a pinch runner and Morton. Harkness scored on Dyllan Lane’s fielders choice hit back to the pitcher. Batting last, Federal had no answers leaving Tigers winners thirteen runs to two. Tigers out hit Federal nine hits to four. The Demons pitching gave up ten base on ball and one hit batter to the Tigers one walk. In the late game South defeated Central in a one run nailbiter.

LOCALS LEAD THE WAY AS SOUTH AUSTRALIA STRUGGLES AT NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS With the five T20 fixtures already done and dusted, the South Australian Outbacks are yet to register a win at the 2019 Australian Country Cricket Championships. Skippered by North Gambier young gun Matt McInerney (pictured left), the South Australian side will be hoping for a change of fortune for the remainder of the tournament , which sees each State tacking each other on in the 50 over format. With a bye and a draw, due to play being abandoned, the Outbacks, which include a number of South East based, and former South East, players, just fell short in its three contests thus far. Hosted in Shepparton, SA’s first opponent was Victoria, last Thursday, and it was the skipper who led the way, top scoring with 24, but with the Outbacks dismissed in the 19th over for only 79, victory was also going to be a big ask. It took Victoria until the 13th over the kill off the contest with Mundulla’s Luke Wiese taking one of only three wickets to fall. Wiese was again a wicket taker in SA’s loss to Queensland, when he snared two wickets on the Maroons’ impressive 4/161, with former local and long time Outbacks representative, Ben Parish (pictured right), also claiming a scalp. But again, runs were hard to come by for the Outbacks with North allrounder Nick McInerney leading the way with 26 runs, with contributions from fellow South East players Dion Stratford (12); Matt McInerney (14) and Kieran Ashby (17). But SA, while lasting the full 20 overs, could only muster 9/131. In their final T20 clash, the Outbacks took on Western Australia, amassing their best score of the tournament with 7/136 batting first. Matt McInerney led the way with 44, while Ashby’s 32 and some late hitting from Nick McInerney (13) saw SA post a defendable total. Western Australia was up to the task, though, passing that target in the 19th over, with Ashby taking one of only four wickets to fall. SA now takes on New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia in the 50 over format of the game with the final set down for January 11.

BASEBALL LEAGUE BACK IN THE RUNNING FOR MAJOR EVENTS “It was a really good three days.” That was the assessment of Mount Gambier & District Baseball League’s Michael Summers, the man who headed up the hosting of the Australian Baseball League (ABL) four game series between the Adelaide Bite and Auckland. The local league clearly knocked it out of the park in terms of its presentation of its newly upgraded facilities and in garnering the support of the community, with around 2000 people attending the four games – an impressive 800 on the opening Friday night and then slightly smaller crowds for the Saturday’s matches and the final game of the series on Sunday. Baseball Australia, Adelaide Bite and the Auckland powerbrokers were impressed by what the Mount Gambier facility at Blue Lake Sport Park had to offer and future fixtures are seemingly assured. Auckland, in fact, were so happy with the Mount Gambier facility, it has put in a request to host its Melbourne series here from January 17-19, but the league is wary of overload, on both its volunteers and the baseball loving public. “While it is a great opportunity, people have just seen what was top level baseball and we don’t want to push it,” Summers said. So while that is an unlikely scenario, hosting another Bite series next season seems more likely than not. “There seems to be no reason for us not to have a series every year and what else builds from that, who knows,” he said. The ABL series was a win-win for the national competition and local players – the ABL needs to expand its fan base and heading to the regions certainly helps that campaign, while for the local competition, batting cages, bull pens, lighting and the main diamond all received a makeover, with locals now able to take advantage of the improved facilities. “The work we were able to do in just six weeks impressed everyone, from Baseball Australia to the two teams,” Summer said. “Imagine what we can do with 12 months to prepare for the next series.” The support of the Mount Gambier City Council and the hours put in by volunteers leading into the series and over the three days also ensured the series was a success. “We are just so stoked,” Summers said. “And the community support was great with a good mix of people involved in baseball and people just coming for a look.” Local players also were able to take advantage of the raft of elite baseball personnel, both players and coaches, with the three coaching sessions held during the visit. Kyall McClean headed up the organisation of those sessions which saw 120 kids at the Thursday session and 80 at the Friday clinic and then the pick of that crop part of an Adelaide Bite development session. Sixteen junior players were also afforded the opportunity to be bat kids for the two ABL teams. Aside from the ABL hosting opportunities, having top level officials in Mount Gambier has reminded the powers-that-be of the Mount Gambier league’s ability to host major events. “It certainly has put us back on the radar for national tournaments and events like that,” Summers said.

LOCAL ARTISTS HITTING THE GROUND RUNNING IN 2019 The South East Art Society is hitting the ground running in 2019 with an Open Day on January 19, so people can come and see just what they’re all about, and also promoting their upcoming Open Art Awards with entries closing on February 15. The art collaborative calls The Stables home – the rustic site on the corner of Sutton Avenue and Herbert Street and that is where the open day will be hosted from 10am to 4pm. There will be art demonstrations, food and music as the South East Art Society looks to attract new members and also showcase their current members to the general community. “The open day will let us show people what we have and what we get up to and then we will build on that,” newly elected president Ivo Tadic said. “We really want to eventually set up a community arts hub where people can come and go as they please and work on artistic projects. And we don’t just mean the visual arts but music and drama and all areas of the arts.” The South East Art Society is almost 50 years old and the current committee is looking to continue that tradition while bringing new ideas to the table. By the time the open day comes around, the society will be able to unveil

a schedule of workshops and other activities at The Stables for the coming months so people will be able to see what will be on offer that might be of interest. The Open Art Awards, which are officially unveiled on March 22, at Riddoch Art Gallery, are open to works across all mediums including oils and acrylics, ceramics, textiles, photography, sculpture, watercolours and the new category of video art.

Entry forms are due by the February 15 cut off date and are available from the society secretary by emailing southeastartsociety@hotmail.com Artists are competing for prizes across a few categories including youth award, inclusive award and patron’s award. The main prize is a $1500 prize. The South East Art Society is currently hosting an exhibition at the Port MacDonnell Community Complex.

WORLD CLASS PERFORMANCE A treat for Limestone Coast music lovers with the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne performing at Naracoorte’s St Pauls Anglica Church on January 14. The 8pm performance is a chance to experience one of the world’s best musical ensembles. The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne gives around 300 concerts a year around the globe and listeners throughout the world look forward to a musical encounter with their exceptionally talented musicians. Founded in Cologne, a city that is famous throughout the world for its University of Music and its musical and instrumental teaching, the chamber orchestra takes advantage of that pool of talent. The appeal of the program lies in the balance of popular and unknown works from a wide variety of musical epochs. This sees familiar greats like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Vivaldi in dialogue with works from people such as Sergei Prokofieff through to the “King of Tango” Astor Piazzolla. Tickets are available at Naracoorte Newsagency.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone. I’m pleased to report that I have made it through the festive season without committing any violent crimes against any members of my family. I can’t take all the glory regarding this and claim any particular powers of self control. I was helped immensely by Mum being locked up on Christmas Eve. If I’ve told her once, I’ve told her a million times; no one finds a crazy old lady decorating herself with Christmas lights, and then singing Christmas carols pantsless entertaining in any way. And it’s not in the Christmas spirit. I also told her I was going to call the police so it serves her right. As for New Year, who cares? So Pope Gregory XIII introduced a calendar 365 days long in the 1500s and we shoot fireworks off and then make promises we’ll never keep every time we go back to the start of it 500 years later. Just do your best each day. Don’t worry about January 1st. It’s just another day. Going back to Christmas, my biggest concern this year is the facts they include in the bonbons. I’m assuming they’re made in Nigeria and it’s some type of scam they’re trying to pull on us so I thought I better clear up the misconceptions before someone gets hurt. Fact one. What do you get if you eat Christmas decorations? Tinselitis. This is simply not correct. If you eat Christmas decorations, you’re going to get very sick. It’s not at all good for your digestive system. If you’re eating Christmas decorations it probably indicates mental health issues and you should seek help. Tinselitis is not even a real medical condition. They’ve just made it up. Tanselitis on the other hand is a very serious condition that may lead to delusions of adequacy, unusual hair growth and an uncomfortable rash. But I’d still definitely seek an expert opinion. Having said all of that, if you do ever eat some Christmas decorations, take photos when you go to the toilet over the next couple of weeks as you’re likely to make some festive number twos. Fact two. What is the best Christmas present in the world? A broken drum. You just can’t beat it. Not true. Getting any broken present is not good. A broken drum would be particularly frustrating as presumably the person would want to make some noise with their drum and be unable to. he best present in the world is new socks. Fact three. Why did Santa’s helper see the doctor? Because he had a low elf esteem. I really objected to this one. Elf self esteem is no laughing matter. Being one of Santa’s elves is an extremely high pressure job. Santa is quite a tyrant throughout the whole month of December and many elves do end up having to take mental health days. Fact four. Who is Santa afraid of? The elf and safety officer? As I’ve just indicated, he should be feeling a bit anxious because some people would describe him as a workplace bully. Maybe he should think about how he treats others. We don’t have these sort of issues with the Easter Bunny.

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - THE DAMN FESTIVE SEASON… By ROBBIE TANSEL

Fact five. Where do snowmen go to dance? The snowball. Not true. Snow people are inanimate objects. They are not alive. They do not dance. If you think you’ve seen a dancing snowman, or had one indicate it would like to dance, then the holiday season has been just a little too much for you and you need a good lie down. Aside from the facts being disturbing, my other concern was the “gifts” in the bonbons. I love a bonbon with some cheap, crappy plastic toy/animal/vehicle/whatever. In fact I’m confident that I have the biggest collection of plastic bonbon toys in the world. However in our Christmas bonbons this year, we found bizarre items including nail clippers. One of my family members pointed out to me that people who are mean always have nails that are too long. Having nails that are too long make you uncomfortable and snappy. I think that may be one of Santa’s issues in December. He doesn’t have time to clip his nails. Donald Trump’s nails are too long as well. Check it out for yourself one day. With that in mind, I decided the nail clippers were acceptable and I ensured all family gave their nails a quick trim. There’s a little tip to ensure you have a good Christmas next year. If you think you have more plastic Christmas bonbon toys than me, email me at robbietansel@gmail.com and we can compare.

February is the month where the long standing club, that has been running for almost four decades, looks to attract new members by offering the chance to give it a go for free. The club holds its events at the Anglican Hall on Bay Road, with Friday, February1, the first opportunity for newbies to cash in on the free offer. Square dancing is as much about fun and friendship as it is the dancing and instruction will be provided by experienced dancers. A great alternative to more structured fitness activities, the dancing starts at 7.30pm and all you need to do is turn up wearing casual

clothes and comfortable shoes. For more information call Roger on (08)8725 6364 or Trevor on 0438 420 615.
