COVER • EXCITING NEW DEVELOPMENTS FOR AWARD WINNING BUTCHER Mick Lamond and the team at Collins Court Butchers are set to unveil their newly expanded and redeveloped premises as the award winning business continues to grow. The expansion became a necessity for the Jubilee Highway West business, with the wholesale part of the business continuing to grow and Mick and the team also needed new room to display all the products they have on offer. And while Collins Court Butchers continues to provide the same quality, often locally sourced, beef, pork and lamb, Mick saw the shop redevelopment as a chance to even further expand the range – it will now include seafood. Basically customers can order in what they want by Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning and Mick will have it on his doorstep, ready for pick up, Wednesday morning. “It seemed like the perfect time to add seafood to our range,” Mick said. “I had been thinking about it for a while and when we realised we had to renovate the shop, the timing was right.” And despite having a lot on the go over the past few months, Mick and the team have never taken their eye of the ball and for the third successive year took out the Australian Meat Council’s Sausage King Competition for their pork sausages at the South Australian event in September. Next month they will represent the State at the national competition

in Perth and it’s not just their pork sausages – which were runner-up national in 2016 and took the top gong in 2017 – that will be in the spotlight. Collins Court Butchers’ lamb sausages also took out the State title and will be vying for top honours in Perth, as well. “Every butcher thinks they make the best sausages but it is good to enter these industry competitions and see how you really stack up,” Mick said. He has been in the industry for 20 years and has owned his own operation for more than half that time and now, thanks to the continued upturn in business, his wife Amy has joined the team, with the possibility of a couple more positions opening up as his loyal customer base continues to stream
through the door and wholesale clients continue to mount up. “We do a lot of restaurants and pubs and a lot of the footy clubs, so the wholesale side of things is getting really busy,” Mick said. He has also picked up some customers as far afield as Beachport and Robe. “Building the business has been a team effort,” he said. “I have six staff working with me here every day and we work well as a team and whatever we achieve is a team effort.” Customer service and using locally sourced product are the other cornerstones to the Collins Court Butcher business. “Customer service is the most important thing,” Mick said. “We are always trying to help our customers and we will source anything for them or

the past year, and/or given outstanding service over a number of years, to the local community over and above normal employment duties. Nominations closed in November and council’s elected members selected the recipients in December. Mount Schank resident Peter Feast has been named as the recipient of the 2019 Citizen of the Year Award. Peter has been an integral part of the Port MacDonnell Landcare Group for almost 40 years and president for the past 23. Over this time he has driven several significant projects, attracting funding to the region to enable ongoing protection and management of existing native vegetation and extensive revegetation projects for on-farm benefits as well as long-term landscape change across the South East including Port MacDonnell’s Germein Reserve. Peter has been a pioneer in revegetation methods and a grower of local native species for our region. His legacy of revegetation over a 40 year period is evident everywhere in the landscape and continues to provide the community with amenity, biodiversity and productivity values now and well into the future. Other deserving nominees for this year’s award included Brian Douglas, Jeanette Elliott, Janet Phillips, Sandra Robinson and Phillip Simpson. Grant Fensom, who was recognised with the award in 2016 and as the Young Citizen of the Year in 1995, was again nominated along with Danny Taylor, from Port MacDonnell, who received a special commendation from council. The Carpenter Rocks Progress Association has been named as recipients of the Community Event of the Year Award for their community led project to upgrade and add amenities to the Carpenter Rocks Hall. Community members were enthusiastic to be involved in the building process and very proud to see the finished result, which is aimed primarily at attracting school groups who visit for Generations in Jazz. Council invites the public to attend its free family focused Australia Day Celebration at Mil Lel where the awards will be presented. Starting at 11.30am the celebration offers free children’s merry-go-round and jumping castle, music by the Mount Gambier City Band and a BBQ and salad lunch for a gold contribution. Official proceedings and award presentations begin at 1.15pm.

SPORTING GRANTS ON OFFER The Federal Government’s Sport Participation Grants program is now open. National sporting organisations, national sporting organisations for people with a disability, plus nongovernment and local government organisations, can apply for grants that will make a genuine impact on the level of activity of everyday Australians in the community. Local Sporting Organisations, Non-Government Organisations and Local Government are eligible to apply for grants between $25,000 and $250,000 to fund local
sport and physical activity projects under stream one of the program. Stream two is open to National Sporting Organisations for grants between $100,000 and $1 million to fund the delivery of large scale initiatives. The government knows just how important sport and physical activity is to helping both children and adults lead a happy, healthy life. I encourage eligible organisations to consider impactful ways to innovate with new programs, or enhance existing physical activity initiatives that will improve the health and wellbeing of communities. We need help get adults to “Find their 30” minutes of exercise a day, and children to reach the 60 minutes per day recommended by the Department of Health. The program will be managed by Sport Australia, the Australian Government’s leading agency for sport and physical activity. The Sports Participation Grants follow the recent announcements of the Better Ageing grants and the Community Sport Infrastructure Grants. Applications will close on February 18 and more information is available at Move It Aus – Participation Grants www.sportaus.gov. au/participationgrants lifestyle1.net | 05
NEW FACES JOIN COUNCIL TEAM Glenelg Shire Council has welcomed four new staff members to its team for 2019 with three administration trainees and an apprentice diesel mechanic all signing on. Michael Peters, Bonita Matthews, Charli Mirtschin and Courtney Hogan are taking on the new roles as part of council’s traineeship and apprenticeship programs.
STATE GOVERNMENT COMES TO THE PARTY Given it has been the centre of community debate for more than three decades, the speed with which the Mount Gambier Community & Recreation Hub project is now moving is bordering on warped. With the 70 percent ‘yes” vote from the community poll announced less than a fortnight ago, and with the Federal Government contribution of $15million already secured, the State Government has now allocated a share of the $39.1million dollar project $10million. Mount Gambier City Council met this week with the view to officially rubber stamping the project and submitting the business plan to the Federal Government Regional Growth Fund, with the financial shortfall set to be covered by the council. “This is extremely positive news with the State Government and Federal Government funding to our community now totalling $25 million for this project. This is a huge vote of support for our city and the region,” Mount Gambier Mayor Lynette Martin said. “We are in a strong financial position with very low loan borrowings and adequate cash savings hence we are able to consider contributing more to the project to ensure it is delivered without increasing rates beyond their current level and while still providing effective services to the community.” Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development Tim Whetstone was given the honour of announcing the
State Government’s support last Friday, and his State and Federal colleagues are thrilled the State Government has provided significant financial backing to the project. “This is fantastic news for our community,” Member for Mount Gambier Troy Bell said. “This hub will be a major community asset that will benefit our city for generations to come. This funding shows a commitment from the State Government towards the future prosperity of our region. Recently, we have seen millions of dollars invested into our region by the State Government, including the Mount Gambier Airport upgrade and STEM school upgrades, and funding for entrepreneurial schools, the arts and forestry. A project of this size generates excitement and stimulates economic growth and opportunities for our community.” Given Member for Barker Tony Pasin already had $15million of Federal funding in the pot, he was glad his own lobbying, and that of Mr Bell, Mayor Martin and Mount Gambier CEO Mark McShane had received a positive hearing. “This is a great example of all levels of Government working together to deliver for local communities,” Mr Pasin said. “It’s also a clear indication that to Liberal Governments, regions matter. Over the past 10 months we’ve seen a vastly different approach to the regions from our State Government and Friday’s announcement is one such
example. There is no doubt that Liberal Governments at a State and Federal level are working together to deliver for regional communities, because we know that by investing in regional communities with projects like this we are helping deliver social and economic benefits that will keep our regional communities great places to live and work into the future.” To continue to

PATS FORUM TO EASE CONFUSION Mount Gambier residents will have the opportunity to attend a Q&A style session with South Australia’s top PATS experts at a public forum next month, hosted by Member for Mount Gambier Troy Bell. Up to 150 people are expected to attend the forum, the first to be held in regional South Australia, which will be attended by PATS manager Alexis Nicholson and chief finance officer Steve Brown. The State Government’s Patient Assisted Transport Scheme (PATS) provides financial assistance to regional South Australians towards the cost of travel and accommodation when patients are required to travel to see medical specialists. Mr Bell said he organised the forum because there was a need for greater clarity around the scheme’s guidelines. “The financial assistance provided by the Patient Assisted Transport Scheme is incredibly important to regional patients accessing medical treatment away from home,” he said. “There are many misconceptions about what is covered under PATS and there also have been changes to the scheme in recent years which people may not be aware of. This forum will give people the opportunity not only to educate themselves about the scheme but also have their say about the pros and cons of the current system.” Should the forum uncover issues or gaps within the current system, Mr Bell said he would be raising them with the Minister for Health, Stephen Wade. “The last review of the PATS scheme
was in 2013,” he said, “And it’s time to see if it is benefitting our regional communities the way it is designed to do and whether changes need to be made.” Mr Bell said common questions about the scheme included whether patients could travel interstate for treatment, accessing specialists outside their region, or whether taxi services can be reimbursed. “We will be asking people to pre-submit questions to ensure a greater scope of topics are covered and attendees will be able to get the answers they need directly from two of the state’s top PATS experts,” he said. Mount Gambier’s Margie Winterfield accessed the service a number of years ago and said she found the guidelines confusing. “I don’t think too many people would find it easy to understand what is covered and what is not,” she said. “It’s not fair - country people should be able to choose their own doctor.” Ms Nicholson said both her and Mr Brown were looking forward to hearing what the Mount Gambier community had to say. The forum will be held at the Mount Gambier Bowling Club at Commercial Street West on February 18, from 6pm. Mr Bell said residents can RSVP for the forum, or submit a question by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by visiting the Mount Gambier electorate office.

TRAINEES HEAD OFF FOR NEW OPPORTUNITIES This month Glenelg Shire Council bid farewell to its administration trainees Charlie Ryan, Ella Nesbit and Georgina Meyrick-Garnier. All three trainees completed a 12 month traineeship with a Certificate III in Business Administration, learning new skills across different business units within council. “I have lifestyle1.net | 08
learned a lot more about all of the different services that Council offers, and how different units can work together to help achieve their targets,” said Charlie. Ella described her traineeship as “a great experience”, proving “exposure to not only local government but a variety of different career paths that you may not have considered yet.” Georgina said “doing this traineeship has made me more confident in my ability to not only work to a high standard but also do it while completing study”. Georgina is set to begin her commerce degree at Deakin University this year, Charlie to commence study at Monash University, studying Commerce & Science, and Ella wishes to continue building upon her career, exploring new job opportunities.

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB IN THE WORLD… By ROBBIE TANSEL Have you ever thought what the most important job in the world is? Prime minister? President? Queen? Is queen even a job? No, being a politician or world leader is not the most important job in the world. As we’ve seen recently, politicians are easily replaceable. Is it a doctor? Doctors do a nice job but as we know nurses carry the medical profession. In a similar area, is it scientists who are trying to cure diseases or solve the world’s big problems? Again, important in their own way, but not the most important job in the world. I asked Donna and she said Mum. I laughed. If Mum was in the top five, I think we all know it would at best be number two behind Dad. One last guess. Teachers? Well now you’re just being silly. Who even needs teachers now that we have the internet? They were barely hanging on after the invention of television, but now they’re completely superfluous. The correct answer is the person who packs the orders into the bags at fast food restaurants. It seems so obvious now, doesn’t it? For anyone who hasn’t recognised instantly how this is the only possible answer, let me explain. Is there anything worse than
returning from your favourite fast food drive through missing an item of your family’s meal? That’s a recipe for disaster. Studies have found that 87 percent of people who have been through divorce have also been through a drive through at some point and received an incorrect order. That’s a pretty strong correlation if you ask me. (Studies probably would say that if anyone looked into it.) The point is, if a person returns from a trip to their fast food restaurant missing part of the order, there are going to be significant issues. At my house, I have on occasion been attacked with weapons when I brought nuggets home for Mum and they hadn’t packed the requested sweet and sour sauce into the bag. Speaking of Mum, she confessed recently that she actually enjoys being in jail. Meals are provided. She likes the structure and routine it provides in her life. There’s always someone to talk to.
And it’s an excellent place to network for potential future getaway drivers. That probably explains a lot. Getting back to the most important job in the world, I am sure there is no bigger problem that any human will encounter in their life than being short one large chips for a family meal. Sure, everyone else can share their chips, but now everyone’s meal has been compromised. Everyone was relying on getting an appropriate amount of fried potatoey goodness, and now no one will. You’re starting to see how important this job is now, right? It doesn’t have to even be a whole serve of chips missing. It only takes someone not paying attention to the note stating no sauce on the burger for a whole night of torment. Take that burger with toxic, poisonous sauce home to the fussy nine year old in your house, and see how that night goes. Refusal to eat the burger, sleep, or follow any
instruction, thanks to one careless teen not paying attention to the very specific order. I know the supply of pimply teenagers is being stretched a little more thinly since the opening of a new fast food restaurant in Mount Gambier recently, but I think if we can remind these youngsters that they actually have the most important job in the world, it may help them understand how high stakes their role is. The other thing I’d like the youngsters to consider is the story of the “baker’s dozen”. As we know a dozen is twelve. Hopefully many of you are aware of a baker’s dozen being thirteen. n medieval England, there were strict laws ensuring that when someone bought bread or rolls, they received what they were paying for. To avoid being punished, bakers would throw in extra to what people had ordered to avoid this punishment. Instead of the dozen
someone had ordered, they would throw in thirteen (or even fourteen). I also know this as a fish and chip shop dozen. If you order potato cakes, you can count on always receiving one more than ordered. This is probably a pretty good reason to go to fish and chip shops. Maybe the fast food restaurants should consider throwing in one extra chips just in case they’ve made a mistake. It’s a sad state of affairs that I always ensure I check my bag before I drive away from the drive through. I shouldn’t have to check my bag to ensure the correct food is found within. Surely that’s factored into the price I pay for my delicious meal. If you think your job is more important than the person packing the food at a fast food restaurant, you’re kidding yourself but email me at firstname.lastname@example.org anyway.

ON THE HUNT FOR WOOL The Mount Gambier Library Crochet Club is sending out an SOS to help with thier chairty blanket project. The generous community has helped out before - and they are calling out again. The group meets Mondays and Fridays and is in the throes of creating charity blankets. They have made 15 blankets so far and have plenty more squares to convert into blankets but they have almost run out of donated 8 ply acrylic yarn, the kind that the charities prefer because it is easier to wash. The group is asking again if anyone has this type of yarn hidden away in cupboards and could drop off anything spare to the Mount Gambier Library.

ENVIRONMENT IN THE SPOTLIGHT The South East Natural Resources Management Board’s first round of subregional forums for 2019 begin this week, and locals are invited to continue the conversation about what’s going on in natural resources management in their area. South East NRM Board presiding ,ember Fiona Rasheed said that over the past two years, the forums have provided a platform for the community to provide feedback to the board, and raise items for action. “The Board has used feedback from previous forums to introduce new initiatives, update projects and form more local partnerships,” said Fiona. “At this round of forums, we will discuss progress on 2018-2019 subregional projects and how to get involved, and get your feedback on the Board’s draft
Business Plan 2019/20- 2021/22. We also want to hear your ideas for how we could use citizen science in our region, and provide an introduction to the Board’s new Australian Government National Landcare projects.” Access a copy of the draft Business Plan on the Natural Resources South East website naturalresources.sa.gov.au/southeast. “We encourage anyone to come along to find out what is happening in your subregion and to have your say.” SOUTH EAST FORUMS • Mallee and Woodlands - January 22 Tintinara Community & Recreation Centre • Volcanic Plains and Southern Dunes January 24 City Hall, Mount Gambier • Dunes and Flats - January 29 Robe Bowling Club • Ranges and Cross Border Creeks January 31 Gather On Gordon, Naracoorte All forums run from 5.30-8pm & include a light meal.

20TH ANNIVERSARY FOR FOLK FESTIVAL The Frances Folk Gathering turns 20 this year with an huge program of guest artists, workshops and entertainment planned for the milestone event. The popular folk fesitval runs from February 22-24. Head to the website for all the latest details. FREE VOLUNTEER TRAINING Lifeline South East was fortunate enough to pick up a $5000 grant to enable it to run free volunteer training around suicide prevention. Known as ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) – the two day interactive workshop usually costs hundreds of dollars but the grant has allowed Lifeline to offer it for free. Rather than targeting health professionals, Lifeline is keen for community members, including sporting coaches and other community group volunteers, to take advantage of this opportunity. “They are often the ones in the best position to notice the changes in a young person,” Lifeline South East’s Eve Barratt said. “People are happy to go and do a first aid course but they worry about doing a suicide prevention course but it is basically trying to do the same thing – put you in a position where you feel more confident and competent. No one who does a first aid course is expected to perform brain surgery and this is similar – we just want people to have the tools and the knowledge so that if necessary they can help.” The course will run on February 19 and 20, from 9am to 5pm at the Lifeline South East office in Mount Gambier. Places are limited and registration is essential. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and to book your place. lifestyle1.net | 23

Happy New Year... and hasn’t it been an interesting one so far? The cool weather has been great for gardening and has given us plenty of opportunity to get outside and do some outdoor entertaining. So, too, have we been given the opportunity to look around the garden and see where we can add some much needed shade from that harsh summer sun we have been having and, even after the blast of heat here and there, and that wonderful rain, it has certainly restored the planting spirit. We have been rushed off our feet since reopening after Christmas. I put it down to us all running around madly for Christmas and not getting time to do things around the home and then when January comes you can breath a sigh of relief and start looking at your outdoor areas and garden. With Australia Day nearly upon us and a very good long weekend for most, we have decided to have some specials to celebrate Australia Day (see facing page). We use to always think to winter to plant trees, especially deciduous trees, but that’s very old school, and the opportunity is not there to see exactly what part of the garden and home requires shading. I know I have just contemplated planting some more trees on the west side to cut the summer sun on the windows and help cool the rooms on that side. Trees have an amazing ability to be our own air conditioning and studies have shown the cooling effects of lawns and plants in so many ways and trees are amazing at reducing the temperatures and cutting out the harsh rays of the sun. Now is a good time to have a look around and even plant a mature or advanced shade tree. These come in many forms from evergreen, giving all year round shading, to deciduous, where the leaves will drop in winter to give added light. Deciduous trees again, come in many forms, from mop tops, where the size is governed by the grafting and variety, so are good for courtyard shade and smaller spaces right throughout, to lightly foliaged trees, such as silver birch, then to larger, heavily foliaged shade trees such as maples and planes that can give fantastic shading to large and small lifestyle1.net | 24
By Calum Haygarth Landscape Architect & Horticultural Consultant areas. We currently grow more than 30 varieties of mop top trees at Limestone Coast Advanced Trees. Most of these are in our Australia Day sale that is running NOW. Remember, too, that many of the older varieties of larger trees you may have been used to are now available in (dwarf) smaller or narrower versions, allowing you to have your old favourites in smaller situations. Last winter we launched our new mini ornamental pear that is shorter in height than the normal Capital, also narrower too, if you would like some of these we still have limited stocks. Another option in place of the narrow ornamental pears that now appear to be getting planted everywhere but still offering stunning spring flowering, green leaves through summer and stunning autumn tones, are the column shaped ornamental crab apples, that, like the pears don’t produce any fruit and are purely ornamental. we have some of these on clearance in our sale. Shade trees, hedges and especially fruit trees have been selling well since Christmas and now is a good time to plant as there is the whole growing season ahead of us. Look out for our 2019 releases of fruit trees and we have an Orchard Starter special on with any four advanced fruit trees for $145 on our coupon offer (see facing page). Many of our advanced and semi mature trees have been slashed to half price to make room for more stock coming through. These include Lipstick Maples, Golden Elms, Liquidambars, ash, elm and even half price mop top trees. If you are looking to plant a driveway or avenue of trees we have clearance on ornamental pears, in both the narrow, upright forms as well as more spreading varieties. So, if you are looking for a bargain and some instant sized trees, now is the time to get in as they are selling fast and we have limited numbers of one metre high plus Pittosporum Silver Sheens for just $19.95, but be quick as the sale has been on for a week now. Citrus, avocadoes, (inc. dwarf) and even berry fruits, including the new release Australian Grown Blueberry, that has fruit the size of a $1 coin, and fruits for nine months of the year, can be planted now for crops in late summer and autumn. We have 50% off selected advanced fruit trees already in fruit for that “instant orchard” and more than $35 off miniature peaches and nectarines, in both yellow and white flesh varieties. The newly released dwarf plum and cherry varieties have been very sought after for their compact growth but abundance of fruit are now reduced to clear, not many people realise that these new breeds of dwarf
tree produce as much fruit as a full sized tree but can be netted more easily and pruned from the ground. All are ideal for pots. All wall art, giftware, ornaments, statues in our gift shop are up to 70% off, and just been added to the sale. The mighty strength of the Australian dollar when we purchased has allowed us to sell pots cheaper than five years ago and our outdoor furniture ranges are around $1000 less than last year. All concrete statues, ornaments and birdbaths, giftware and wall art are reduced to clear with up to 70% off prices, this includes our driftwood from the Philippines and metal oil drum animals, eskies etc. All concrete ware/ lightweight concrete ware, including troughs, large square and round tubs, are included, these are ideal for miniature fruit trees and dwarf citrus varieties, as they can last their entire life without transplanting, especially important with citrus trees, who resent root disturbance and we have minimum 25% off citrus, including double grafted citrus. Gardenarium and The Pot Shop also carries a wide range of solid teak garden furniture which has in the past been out of most people’s price range. With our direct importing we have brought prices right back to less than the flurry of Asian hardwoods that you see looking good in the showroom one minute and warping, cracking and splitting the next. Cast aluminium, which is corrosion free and lightweight, is great for chairs, especially with older people. These are also ideally suited to coastal areas. Our tiled top tables, solid sandstone tiled top tables, pale travertine topped and new for this year is our ceramic table which has been a huge hit, and being natural timber colouring in browns and greys as well which will match in with many colour schemes. We still have one eight seater square table and a few rectangular tables in the Roman range to clear all at fantastic prices, with the three metre long banquet table seating 12-14 people, a serious entertainers table, (see website for details) in both stone and aluminium. Grab your truck, trailer or ute and head in to Gardenarium & Limestone Coast Advanced Trees now and bag a bargain.

NEW ATTRACTION ADDS TO SWIMMING LAKE CELEBRATIONS The Millicent Swimming Lake is turning 50 on January 27 and Wattle Range Council is hosting a free family fun day to celebrate. The feature of the celebration will be a newly purchased inflatable obstacle course. Wattle Range Mayor Des Noll said council was excited to bring this fantastic new activity to the Wattle Range community as part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations.The Inflatable (obstacle course) is more than 20 metres long and includes balance and climbing sections as well as a slide to finish. Lifeguards will supervise the use of the inflatable and patrons will need to pass a swim test to ensure they are safe in deep water. The free family fun day will run from
11am – 4pm with a treasure trail, live music, jumping castle and cake cutting. “One of the other highlights will be the video booth,” said Mr Noll. “We are encouraging people to come forward with their stories from when the lake was first built and share their memories of the Lake over the past 50 years. The video will be shown in Council’s Visitor Information Centres to showcase this unique attraction and what it means to our community.” The Inflatable will be in use at the Millicent Swimming Lake from 1pm – 4pm daily from all this week as well as during the family fun day. “In February, we look forward to making the Inflatable available for a weekend at Nangwarry Pool and Penola Pool,” Mr Noll said.

LOCAL SPORT HISTORY MAKING VICTORY As the Mount Gambier Harness Racing Club celebrated its 70th anniversary at Greenwald Paceway, one of the sport’s long standing families made it a night to remember, securing their first ever Gold Cup in a blanket finish to the 2019 premier event for the club. It was Dave Drury, who trained and piloted Iam Erik to victory in the 2590m race. The New Zealand bred horse had its first setback at the barrier draw – earning a starting position in the second row on the fence, but once four year old gelding was able to find some clear air, the class shown through. “I had faith in the horse but the barrier draw took my confidence away,” Drury said. “We were locked away on the fence for quite a while during the race but he had trained well, he’s a big strong horse, and once we found some space I knew he was good enough.” Dave Drury has been around harness racing for as long as he can remember, most of his 42 years, with strong support from his parents, and a connection with the sport dating back to his great grandfather and the McCarthy family name – one of the pioneering families of the sport in this region. “Mum and dad have been with me the whole time – mem goes in everything I buy,” Drury said. He also has a 15 year association with Richard and Janice Healey, with galloper trainer Jamie Opperman also part of the connections, with Luke Mulraney, Simon Paproth and Leigh and Kate Capewell. For Richard Healey, it was a thrilling victory. “I’ve been coming to the trots for 59 years,” he said. “We got into horses about 15 years ago and we’ve been with Dave (Drury) the whole time. It was in my family’s blood and I’ve always loved the trots. When is started coming all those years ago, though, I did not dream of winning this cup.” Richard Healey was also worried when he saw the barrier draw for Iam Erik. “I
knew it was going to be difficult but we did think we had a chance – he had the ability if he could just get a little bit of a run.” For Jamie Opperman, who has tried a number of times to secure the Mount Gambier Gold Cup on the flat, was thrilled to finally have some impressive silverware. He became involved with the Drury camp thanks to geography – they are next door neighbours. “It’s a great honour to win this cup – it was a great effort by Dave,” he said. It was the 47th running of the Gold Cup and there can be no denying Dave Drury has put in the hard yards to get to this point. “Dad always had horses and I started pretty young with pony trots,” Drury said. “I went away for a couple of years to work in stables in Melbourne

and I got the bug.” His training career started in Geelong but he eventually succumbed to the lure of home. It is a tough sport, with the prizemoney not really proportionate to the outlay, especially compared to thoroughbred horse racing, with life in South Australia even tougher than Victoria. “You still hope the sport will keep going, though, it’s a great family sport,” Drury said. “There’s not a lot of young ones into the sport but there are some coming through.” Celebrations went late into the night and will continue for a few days to come before its back to business as usual, albeit with

HISTORY MAKING KNOCK...ALMOST North Gambier batsman Jake Schutz’s score of 224 in the Barber Shield cricket had me wondering where the score ranked all-time in the history of the Barber Shield. Since the introduction of turf wickets to the Barber Shield competition (some years ago now) the ball has dominated the bat more often than not with 224 considered a competitive team total. Has there been a higher individual score? We can inform Sports Nut - there has - Yahls’ Chris & Andrew Corach’s grandfather hit the 250 mark in the 1950s. AND A FEW OTHER THINGS... I loved reading that Bryan Green was to be involved in the Pioneers Women’s team. Green has put in countless hours over many years developing Mt Gambier basketball talent and encouraging higher level participation through Lakers teams and SA Country basketball representation. He has ensured that Mt Gambier junior basketballers are always extremely well prepared for higher level representation conducting the weekly DNSP programme throughout the year and an intense block of training prior to the Australian Country Championships in Albury.
Tragic news for Hawthorn with reigning Brownlow medallist Tom Mitchell likely to miss the entire 2019 after badly breaking his leg in a training accident. Clubs, by necessity , have to move forward and will no doubt adopt a ‘next man up’ philosophy but it’s hard to replace the best player in the competition.
How good is Indian batting maestro Virat Kohli? Kohli’s century in the second One Day International against Australia was his 39th in total in 50 over cricket and incredibly his 24th when batting second and chasing a total. He is about as ‘clutch’ as it gets! Soccer superstar Lionel Messi scored his 400th goal in La Liga, the top professional association football division of the Spanish League Football System. Messi extended his lead as the division’s all-time top scorer, which currently stands at 89 goals, ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.

SUNCORP SUPER NETBALL HAS STRONG SOUTH EAST FLAVOUR The South East has always performed well at regional and State Country Championships when it comes to netball and in recent years, the State under age teams have had a swag of athletes, born and bred in this region, as part of their line-ups. Now, that talent is moving through to the elite level with five girls, who learned their trade in South East netball competitions, part of 2019 Suncorp Super League franchise programs. Sienna Allen has moved north for an opportunity with the reigning titleholders Sunshine Coast Lightning (see story page 29), while four “locals” are part of the Adelaide Thunderbirds - Cody Lange, as a contracted player, Nyah Allen (see story page 29) and Maisie Nankivell (see bleow), as training partners, and Emily Burgess (see next week’s Lifestyle1) as a pathway player. Adelaide Thunderbirds Head Coach Tania Obst said the Adelaide Thunderbirds athletes were great examples of the talent developed through the Netball SA pathways. “We are committed to developing these talented South Australian athletes and I am very excited to see them flourish in our elite training environment,” she said. “Maisie is a hard-working mid-courter and her performances for the 2018 19/U state team, Southern Force and Matrics Premier League side have been rewarded with a Training Partner contract. At 16, Nyah formed a formidable shooting partnership with former Adelaide Thunderbird Carla Borrego for Garville’s 2018 Premier League team. She’s an exciting young shooting talent who will greatly benefit from being involved in our program.”
MAISIE BRACES FOR A BUSY 2019 If anyone understands the expression – it never trains it pours – it is Maisie Nankivell. The former Mundulla netballer has been on the elite netball pathway since moving to Adelaide – playing Premier League, ANL and under age State, including the 2016 national championships winning 17 & under SA team – and that career has taken another huge step with Maisie officially announced as one of four training partners for the Adelaide Thunderbirds. But just as she took that next vital step in her netball career, the Adelaide Crows also came knocking with a contract for the 2019 AFLW season, and Maisie decided it was an opportunity too good to refuse so she is now training at the elite level in two sports. “I have actually found balancing it not too bad,” Maisie said. “It’s been about managing my training loads but my body is feeling good and I’m getting the best out of both sports.” Maisie actually didn’t play football when she was younger. “I watched my brothers play and said I wouldn’t mind doing that but mum said I had netball and basketball and that was enough,” Maisie said. “But when I was approached by the Crows, I thought ‘why not?’ – this opportunity might never come around again and even if I’m only there for a year, at least I can say I gave it a go.” Fortunately, in terms of training, Maisie has found the fitness overlaps. “I have to be a bit physically stronger for football, for tackling and things like that, but there is a lot that works for both. I have to concentrate on recovery to make sure my body can perform at its best for both netball and football.” So while she is working overtime to make the most of her AFLW opportunity, netball has always been the priority and to be just one step away from a Super Netball contract is all the motivation Maisie needs. “It is such great exposure to the elite level and the best players in the world,” Maisie said. “All of the training and effort you have put in, week in, week out, to improve your weaknesses to then get a training partner contract is so good. It’s the next step up to challenge myself even more and I absolutely want to earn a playing contract in the next couple of years. The main thing is I am on the pathway and it’s an exciting opportunity.” Maisie has certainly thrived already, on working alongside players the quality of Commonwealth
Gold Medallist Chelsea Pitman. “Seeing how the international players go about their business and working in the professional environment and with players with such a high intensity that only have winning in mind is amazing,” Maisie said. “It is a lot more intense, going out to trainings where players push each other and getting the best out of each other – it is a big step up. It is good to now have to push myself working alongside them to keep up with them.” Maisie has tapped into Pitman’s expertise and appreciates the generosity of the star mid courter. “I ask a lot of questions because she’s obviously been around for quite a while and has the experience. They have done it all and you can feed of that. It has already been really beneficial for my game.” Maisie is also aware, that just like Thunderbird Cody Lange, fellow training partner Nyah Allen and pathway athlete Emily Burgess, regional players inspire young players from their home associations who aspire to compete at the highest level. “I went through all the association rep teams and the regional academy when I was growing up playing for Mundulla,” Maisie said. “I had that development from the very start, playing junior netball and getting the opportunity to play A Grade at an early age and that has done a lot for me and I am continuing that development now – it

really built that foundation, that basic knowledge. Programs like the regional academies are really, really important for young athletes, for those who do want to make it at the highest level.” Maisie’s training across both sports keeps her pretty busy at the moment, but she is committed to returning to the region where she got her start to conduct coaching clinics for junior players. “I want them to know that if you just keep at it and are passionate about your netball, to can take you anyway,” Maisie said. And while she is now dedicating much of her time to her AFLW and Super Netball careers, Maisie is also launching her tertiary study in 2019, taking on a Bachelor of Criminology, majoring in behavioural science. “I am starting off full time and will see how it goes – I think I will be able to tell after a couple of weeks if I have to pull back to part time – I’ll just see how I’m managing,” Maisie said. There is also provision for elite athletes in terms of deadlines and sitting exams, so she is grateful those concessions are available. “Ultimately, I need a career for after netball and football and to have something to focus on away from sport and working towards something I am really interested in, is really important I think. I have always been interested in criminal justice and the law and I’m really looking forward to it.”
LOCAL SPORT SISTERS SET TO FACE OFF ON COURT
WOMEN’S FOOTBALL SEASON READY TO KICK OFF
Up until late last year sisters Sienna and Nyah Allen, who both moved to Adelaide to follow their netball dreams, were housemates. Now Sienna is living on the Sunshine Coast, while Nyah will stay in Adelaide and they could well be on court opponents next time they meet face to face. Sienna has earned a place in the Sunshine Coast Lightning’s 14 player squad for the upcoming.Suncorp Super Netball season. This latest chapter in the hard working 19 year old defender’s career comes on the back of a whirlwind three years where she burst onto the national scene as a key member of the South Australian 17 & Under national championship winning team in 2016, and has since been part of the State’s 19 & Under teams, including the team that finished runner-up at this year’s nationals, and has been part of three Australian development squads ever since. Sienna has achieved all this, living away from home since she was 17, and taking advantage of a two year academic and sporting scholarship at Immanuel College, securing a 99.1 ATAR at the prestigious school. A South Australian Sports Institute (SASI) netball scholarship holder for three years, Sienna is looking forward to working with the Lightning’s head coach Noeline Taurua, who is also the head coach at the Silver Ferns – New Zealand’s national netball team. “Netball is a small world and I have heard fantastic reports about Noeline from former New Zealand players with whom I have trained with,” Sienna said. “She is a dual Super Netball championship winning coach and you can already see her influence with the Silver Ferns since taking over the national coaching role.” Another added bonus in terms of the coaching staff is Kylee Byrne – a nationally recognised leader in developing under age talent. “her ability to develop younger players is a huge drawcard to being part of the Sunshine Coast Lightning,” Sienna said. Given Sienna only came to the sport as an 11 year old, it has been a meteoric rise to now being on the cusp of playing in the strongest domestic competition in the world and like so many, her first coach was her mother, Nicola Allen, a quality netballer in her own right. Having had a taste of competition in the Australian Netball League (ANL) this year when she debuted for the
The 2019 Limestone Coast Women’s Football League draw has been released as three new clubs ensure the fledgling competition continues to grow. Eleven teams will compete for the 2019 premiership, with the season kicking off on February 3 at Mundulla, home of one of the three new clubs. The competition is in its second full season, and third overall, and the premiership decider for 2019 will be held on March 31. New kids on the block Mundulla, are being joined by fellow debutante clubs Casterton Sandford and Penola with the competition now spreading far and wide across the region. All matches have been scheduled for Sundays, with the exception of the March long weekend, where Monday matches have been programmed. The league is also continuing its partnership with Veolia as the naming rights sponsor of the competition. Football operations coordinator (South East) Michael Mourbey said the competition was on a strong footing as organisers looked to establish the best way forward. “It’s a very young competition and it’s always evolving, as is women’s football everywhere,” he said. “We expect there to be changes every year over the next three to four years as we work on the structure that is right for the South East.” This region stacks up well, in terms of numbers and skill level, compared with other South Australian regions, even though, unlike any other region, the Limestone Coast opted for a senior competition as its inaugural competition, rather than junior. “Putting a junior competition in place is one of our next priorities but it has really worked for us starting off with the senior girls first,”
Southern Force, Sienna is excited for the challenge that lies ahead with taking her game to yet another level. In a twist of fate, Sienna’s challenge could well come from someone very close to her, being her 16 year old sister Nyah, who has secured a position with the Adelaide Thunderbirds squad. Nyah’s netball career has been on a sharp trajectory since she secured an A Grade position at the Millicent Netball Club as a 14 year old. Nyah was adjudged best on court in the premiership winning 2016 grand final and then opted to move to Adelaide to join sister Sienna. Nyah has been part of the past two national championships winning South Australian 17 & Under teams, steering her team to victory this year with a Grand Final MVP performance. She debuted in the Premier League for Garville in 2017 and took home the Rookie of the Year honour for the competition as a 15 year old. She has been a SASI scholarship holder for the past two years and was this year awarded the SASI Netball Athlete of the Year, having also debuted for the Southern Force, converting 140 goals from 155 attempt at 90 percent. Not surprisingly, Nyah has been named in 17 & under national talent squads for the past two years, on the back of being ranked the most accurate goaler in that age group at the past two national titles. The chance to train alongside the most elite players in the country, as part of the Adelaide Thunderbirds squad, is yet another stepping stone for Nyah and her career. “I am most looking forward to training with and playing alongside Maria Folau,” Nyah said. “She has been one of the best goalies in the world for such a long time and I know I am going to learn so much.”

Mourbey said. “That will be the next big thing, whether it is a school competition or an under age competition. The junior competition is obviously key for the sustainability of the local competition but we are in a really strong position. A lot of the other competitions around the State are playing 10-12 a side, whereas we have always maintained the 16-18 player maximum utilised at the elite level. I see no reason why the competition won’t keep getting stronger as it is with the SANFLW and AFLW. Our numbers stack up and we really are ahead of the curve.” The support from the Western Border, Mid South East and Kowree Naracoorte Tatiara clubs competing in the men’s competition has been vital to the early success of the women’s competition, while the umpiring fraternity have also been forthcoming with their time and expertise. The league is also moving to be able to operate independently with the establishment of an executive. Karen Duncan, Steve Perryman and Damien Wilson are currently part of that group with vacancies existing for more to become a part of the LCWFL executive.

FOOTBALL IS NEAVE’S FIRST LOVE She plays hockey and tennis at a high level but it is football that is her first love and 15 year old Neave Delaney has grabbed the opportunity to better her skills by taking up a place in the Adelaide Crows Academy. As reported last week in the story on Brooke Tonon, who is also part of the academy, the South East players were selected after representing Glenelg in the Under 17 Statewide Super Shield. Playing midfield and resting up forward in a pocket, Neave has attended three sessions so far and has enjoyed working alongside elite players and coaches at the same facility utilised by the Crows AFL and AFLW teams. The sessions have involved mainly drills, with the most recent session seeing the girls tested, along the lines of the AFL Combine, with skills including time trial, vertical leap and agility all under the microscope. “It has been really great and to be able to train again at a higher level helps you see what you need to do if you want to play AFL,” Neave said. The girls have worked with the likes of Chelsea Randall and Sally Riley and for Neave, who is a Carlton supporter, the chance to work in the same facilities as her football hero – Erin Phillips – has been an awesome opportunity. “I just want to keep training hard and learning,” Neave said. She has also been training hard with the East Gambier squad for the upcoming Limestone Coast Women’s Football League. Neave is also part of Hockey SA’s development pathway and plays A! tennis in Mount Gambier.
ELLA EXCITED BY CROWS OPPORTUNITY Ella Little started out her football career as the only girl in the team and now, seven years later, she is part of the Adelaide Crows Academy – an elite development squad for the State’s best female footballers. Ella started her career as an eight year old with the Mount Gambier Football Club and only recently moved to Millicent Football Netball Club to play in both their junior boys and the female competition. “I particularly like the competitive nature of football as I have always been extremely competitive,” Ella said. She is also a basketballer but the Millicent High School student really lovers her football and is hoping to be selected for the Glenelg Under 17 team again, as she was last year – the matches from which she, and the other two South East based footballers, were selected to be part of the elite training squad at the Crows. Those trials are in August so her work now with the Saints in the upcoming Limestone Coast Women’s Football League and then as part of the Western Border competition, will be critical in preparing her for another shot at representative football. The opportunity to train with other budding AFLW players, and to learn from some of the sport’s best has been a dream come true for Ella. “I have really enjoyed getting to know new people and finding many new friends,” she said. “I’ve enjoyed learning new skills, knowledge and techniques, and more about the game as well. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the training sessions I have done so far and I’m really looking forward to future training sessions..
MOUNT GAMBIER & DISTRICT BASEBALL LEAGUE Central bounced back from there defeat at the hands of Federal last week with a resounding win against South Indians in the early Division 1 game at Blue Lake Sports Park on Saturday.

SOUTH EAST VETERANS GOLF On a scorching day in the South East, 56 golfers played the Kingston course, where there was some relief with a nice sea breeze all day. As you would expect, locals Pat Ryan and Milan Hodak fought out Division One, both having 41 points and Milan had the better back nine to win. Third was the old Padthaway burglar, Brian Slape on 39 points. The Second Division went, surprisingly, to Terry Staude, with 36 points, from Ian Telfer and Donnie Richards, on 35. The NTPs went to David Seymour and Max Clifford, who outfoxed his younger playing mates with the perfect club selection on the 17th. The ball rundown went to 30 points and the Ross Orchard was taken out by two Millicent oldies, Doodles Bowering and Bruce Packer. The next outing is at Robe on February 4 and then Port MacMacDonnell on the February 18. The annual getaway trip is this year going to Victor Harbor, and Bruce needs to know exact numbers by the end of this month. It is from April 7 to 13, staying at the Hotel Victor, and is always a great break, on some very different and highly ranked courses. There’s also plenty of camaraderie during the stay. lifestyle1.net | 30

DEMONS SUFFER FIRST LOSS It was a round of upsets in the battle for finals places this week in the Mount Gambier Softball league. First place and previously undefeated Demons took on second place Warriors Blue in a Thursday night fixture, and the crowds were treated to a high standard match which lived up to it’s billing. Warriors were clinical scoring a run in the first innings care of a Jenna Burston single and a Leyna Bruggemann stand up double. Demons answered in the second with a lead of single to Cody Manning. They pushed her round the bases with infield hits before Kelly Morale punished a high pitch to left field for the RBI. Highlights for Demons were a triple each to Isabella Morale and Grace Millard, and also Kelly Morale throwing out a runner from right field. Warriors however piled on 4 runs in the third innings, thanks to contributions from all players. Warriors held firm in the field, and Nicole Vause continues to dominate the competition with two safe hits, including a triple which was thrown down by a pin point relay by Manning to prevent the home run. Bruggemann pitched accurately and effectively for Warriors, and recovered from her recent throwing woes, fielding a come backer to quell a last ditch attempt to score from Demons. Simone McDonald made the final play from third, showing her cool headedness, and Warriors held on to record a deserved 5-1 victory. Concordes White were looking for redemption this week after losing by one run last time to Warriors White, and it was exactly as they had hoped, coming up trumps by one run themselves on this occasion, while in the other match Wanderers were too good for Concordes United. RESULTS Warriors Blue 5 (N. Vause 2; J. Koop, J. Burston, L. Bruggemann, S. McDonald, C. Hanson, E. HartungGleeson) d Demons 1 (Mackenzie Millard, I. Morale, C. Manning, G. Millard, K.

ART AT THE SEASIDE
It was a hive of activity at the gathering of art lovers in the Port MacDonnell Community Centre earlier this month, where artists Glenys Hughes and Chrissy Pudney, who are currently showing a joint exhibition at the complex, invited the public to come along and share their time over a cup of Endless Cup coffee and home baked goods, kindly provided by the Hughes family. “It was a pleasure to see such a diverse gathering,” Chrissy said.
The two artists, whose exhibition is called Interwoven, are quite different in style - Glenys is all about attention to detail, and fine details at that, in her wearable art, while Chrissy focuses on reclaiming material for the environment for her pieces. “I enjoyed chatting about the ideas and reasons behind my work and the continuous challenge and pleasure of acquiring ever changing materials,” Chrissy said. lifestyle1.net | 32
As well as spending the afternoon sharing ideas and connecting with many familiar faces and welcoming new art lovers, Glenys made sure the experience was also hands on, working alongside children in spinning wheel demonstrations. The duo also revealed they are already planning their summer 2019/20 exhibition. All artworks are for sale. Interwoven will be on show until February 28. The complex is
open seven days a week.Check www. dcgrant.sa.gov.au or Port MacDonnell Community Complex on facebook for opening hours. Above (far left) - Artists Glenys Hughes & Chrissy Pudney with Di McEwen.

SHEDS AND TRAILERS
Last year MJ Dance Studio celebrated its 30th anniversary and this month – the competition that saw the Mount Gambier studio morph from being an unknown provincial school to a highly respected breeding ground on the national stage – National Showcase – is celebrating a milestone of its own – 25 years. So despite the fact the Mount Gambier studio, established by current director Maria Slape, has had a huge 12 months with a venue change, the 30th anniversary, establishing classes in Casterton and setting up an Adelaide studio, there was never any doubt Maria was going to groom a contingent of students to head to the Gold Coast to be part of the anniversary National Showcase. Thirty-nine students headed north last week with the studio set to perform 20 troupe n umbers, as well as having seven dancers competing for the prestigious Dancer of the Year (DOTY) – the individual accolade that has seen past alumni including Sam Malseed, Euan Doidge, Kiana De Van Der Schueren and Symiko De Van Der Schueren, all rank highly, or indeed, take it out. This year, the studio has some strong chances to keep that tradition alive with Madi Lane and graduating student Ryan Thompson, both in line for top honours, on the back of both finishing third in their DOTY sections last year. The MJ students range in age from six through to seniors and Maria was confident this group of soloists and troupe members would acquit themselves well. “I love our new work,” Maria said, many of the pieces having been created during the 30th anniversary celebrations in 2018 by past students. “We are showing five new pieces and I am so happy with them because I had time to really work on them.” For many of MJ’s senior group, this is their swansong and Maria and those students want to end on a high. “I am hoping for big things for them – it’s a good team,” she said. “Obviously we want to do well but the Showcase experience is incredible in its own right – it has been the thing that has got us connected with other dancers in Australia. We are definitely part of the Showcase family.” Current students and families, as well as new students and families are invited to MJ’s Open Day on January 28 to officially unveil their new home on the corner of Alexander and Keegan Streets in the former YMCA building, and current home of Mount Gambier’s Swim School. MJ is joining forces with Phoenix Music Studio to call the new venue home with free workshops and information stations set to be highlights of the day. In the lead up to the January 28 Open Day, MJ teachers will be caught up in workshops of their own, with the school set to introduce Rhythmic Gymnastics in 2019. Acrobatics and Hip Hop will also be a feature of the Open Day, with guest teacher Jack May, set to run the hip hop sessions and Chrissy Jenkin, the acrobatics sessions. The new venue sees three dance studios upstairs, as well as a music studio and singing studio for the Phoenix students. Official lessons start on February 4. “We’ve never had a space like this before,” Maria said. “We feel like it’s a proper dance studio – there’s changerooms and waiting spaces for the kids. The vibe around the studio is pure excitement. We’ve had good studios before but this is by far the best. The size of the studios, the flooring and mirrors, it is all just what we have always wanted.”

MJ DANCE STUDIO RETURNS FROM NATIONAL EVENT TO NEW HOME
The chance to work hand in hand with Jodi Swiggs and the Phoenix team is also a plus, making the new facility a real cultural hub. “We are really excited to be working with Phoenix,” Maria said. “We have our separate spaces and we’re not on top of each other but we have the same goals and ambitions and for kids that are interested in musical theatre, or who just enjoy dance, singing and music – it is a one stop shop.” See next week’s Lifestyle1 for all the Showcase results, as well as updates on the new music and dance hub.
