COVER • CELEBRATING LIFE IN THE BUSH Sandford is set to come alive on the March Long Weekend with a three day celebration of music, bush crafts, art and local culture. The Sandford Bush Festival, in its second year, runs from March 8-10, with a program of bush ballads, folk, gospel, Celtic, reggae, bluegrass and Australian country music performed by professionals, semi-professionals, amateurs and hopefuls, including some very talented younger performers. The festival is also a celebration of the time honoured tradition of bush poetry, with the Poet’s Breakfast, which is open to all, running from 9am on both Saturday and Sunday. Hosted by Andrew Hayes, and held in the Main Marquee, the Poet’s Breakfast will showcase local and visiting bush poets, story tellers and yarn spinners, and you are welcome, whether you want to just sit and enjoy or whether you want to perform. If you wish to perform, just turn up, put your name down, enjoy the poetry and wait for your turn. The

The headline acts for the 2019 festival include the Royal High Jinx, Greg Champion, Crooked Road, Paul Wookey, Slime Dime, The Delahoys and Stumpy Gully Bush Band. The Royal High Jinx write, play and sing music inspired by European traditions, shaded with gypsy jazz and a pinch of classical virtuosity, while sporting a spectacular wardrobe combining dapper suits and burlesque exuberance. Sarah (violin), Silas (piano & drums), Jen (guitar) and Terry (mandolin) formed the band in Melbourne in 2014 as a way to explore their musical roots and bring their favourite spicy instrumental music and classic continental standards into the

Over many years he has honed these skills to become a polished performer and has toured extensively throughout Australia and overseas. A regular performer at folk and country music festivals, he won the prestigious Best New Artist Award at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in 1981, in recognition of the quality of his first album, Mountain Breakfast. Paul’s music is not easy to classify, sitting somewhere between folk, blues and country music with a more or less even distribution of Irish, American and Australian influences.

LIVING THE DREAM Maddy Macera bid Mount Gambier farewell in 2012 and has spent that time since honing her skills as a dancer and taking the first steps on the path to a professional career. And she is putting her own name to her work, producing and performing in her first ever Adelaide Fringe show with a former classmate and she not only takes ownership of her own career, but also ensures South Australian dancers have the opportunity to pursue their passion. When Maddy graduated from MJ Dance Studio and school she headed to Sydney to complete the one year course at the highly regarded Brent Street Studio, focussing on contemporary dance. Europe was then calling and Maddy spent three months, mainly in The Netherlands, attending classes, workshops and auditions. Once back on home soil, she was still looking to spend more time studying her craft and she auditioned for and won a place at the Adelaide College of Arts, enrolling in a Bachelor of Creative Arts, majoring in dance, in what is a Flinders University course. Maddy started that journey in 2014, graduating in 2016 and since then has been securing professional gigs, as well as teaching. It was, in fact, a project she had to complete while at the Adelaide College of Arts that inspired what is now her first Fringe Show. It was a formal subject, giving the students an

opportunity to put together their own show. Now the March 8-10 show is a reality, although it is a new concept from their university project. Performed at the Goodwood Institute Theatre, Abyss is a collaboration of Maddy and her classmate Daniel Maley and is based on the 14th century epic poem Inferno, by Dante. “Basically it’s about the nine circles of hell,” Maddy said. While Maddy is choreographing and producing the show, she is also dancing in it, alongside Adelaide College of Arts graduates. “We wanted to focus on using South Australian dancers, who were trained and work in South Australia,” Maddy said. “You don’t often see that in Fringe shows because there are so many international shows. It can be quite hard to get work when you are a young artist in Adelaide and we are really happy and excited to be collaborating with young South Australian artists and giving them this opportunity.” Maddy and three other dancers will be performing the newly created work – Connor Gibson, Amelia Walmsley and Rebecca Egan. It has been a long and eye opening process for Maddy to take her concept with Daniel and secure it as a 2019 Fringe event. “We had to apply quite early to become an artist in the Fringe and it all sort of started last September,” she said. Then there was the applications for government

and other funding to help finance the project and the duo was fortunate to receive a windfall from the Helpmann Academy to help get their show off the ground. “So we were busy writing grant applications for three or four months, writing, researching and going to a lot of meetings,” Maddy said. In a show of confidence that the project would all come together, Maddy and Daniel floated the idea with the dancers, who are now officially on board. “They were really great about it and happy to make themselves available,” Maddy said. To start off, with it was just Maddy and Daniel, starting to come up with the concept and selecting the music that would best suit the work. “We just wanted to work together and throw around some ideas and concepts,” she said. By late December and early January the duo was meeting three to four times a week, with the dancers, and everyone has had their input. The music of Hans Zimmer, a movie composer responsible for the soundtracks to Interstellar, Inception and the Academy Award winning Lion King, has provided the perfect backdrop for Abyss. “Even that was quite the process to buy a licence to use the music,” Maddy said. “And then there’s the editing of it all together for the 45 minute show.” Abyss will also include some recordings of some spoken word as well to bring the whole performance

it is all what we want in the show.” Maddy has also added to the degree of difficulty – she is also performing in another Fringe show, a contemporary dance show. “I am living the dream,” Maddy said. “I am doing what I have always wanted to do and it is awesome. Being in the studio basically every day is an amazing feeling.”

COUNCIL ON THE HUNT FOR POTENTIAL NEW HOME Wattle Range Council is in the throes of researching a potential new home for its Millicent headquarters in conjunction with developing council’s 2019/20 annual business plan. The current council office was built in the 1930s as the former Millicent High School and was converted to council chambers and offices in 1963. “The current building is in need of a significant makeover, and we are concerned that further investment in this 90-year-old asset will only be a bandaid solution,” Wattle Range Mayor Des Noll said. “We have therefore directed the CEO to explore alternative site options as part of our budget deliberations.” Evaluating the future administration needs and the potential redevelopment work that will soon be required at the current site is in line with the council’s Strategic Plan 2018-2021, which had, as an actionable item, to ‘review future expansion options and requirements for the council main office’. More information about council’s Strategic and Annual Business Plans can be found on council’s website.

together. “We think it is really interesting,” Maddy said. While dancing in a professional performance is not foreign to Maddy, taking care of the behind the scenes details has been exactly that. “It is quite a different feel to be a producer, it is a whole different situation,” she said. “We get to decide how and what we do and

CEO BIDS FAREWELL Out going Mount Gambier City Council CEO Mark McShane has bookended his tenure in the city’s top job with two major infrastructure projects. He arrived at the end of 2011, just in time to cut the ribbon on the Main Corner redevelopment and he leaves on the cusp of the sod being turned on the Mount Gambier Community and Recreation Centre – a project 30 years in the making, that has been fast tracked in the past six months as rare big ticket government funding from both Federal and State governments became available. Just as the next CEO may well reap the rewards of the work of Mr McShane and his staff, especially with regards to the recreation centre, Mr McShane believes all councils and staff build on the work of those that have come before, as well as adding their own elements to the legacy. Since announcing his decision to step down three months ago, although he will remain a member of the Mount Gambier community, interspersed with some well earned holidays, Mr McShane has had rare moments to contemplate his seven year reign or what his future will hold. From ushering in a new council, elected in November, to fast tracking all the necessary paperwork for the indoor recreation centre funding, it has been a whirlwind farewell tour. “It is always a big job, connecting to a new council, helping them understand their roles and getting them familiar with all the

TEST

rules and procedures,” Mr McShane said. “We were then busy finalising the application to the Federal Government for the funding and then putting the squeeze on the State Government. What a lot of people don’t realise is how unheard of it is to get Federal and State governments cooperating on a project like this and to get the decisions made so quickly. Of course, there was a lot of background work done by a lot of people, but in the end, it all happened pretty quickly.” Mr McShane felt the city was “well armed and confident” when he, and Mayor Lynette Martin, met with Premier Steven Marshall and that confidence was well-founded, given the speed with which the South Australian Premier offered to write the $10million dollar cheque to go with the promised $15million from the Federal Government. “We now just want to get that locked away before May and the election,” he said. “We have to deliver what we have said we are going to deliver.” And while the retiring CEO realises councils are often measured by the infrastructure projects they deliver, and he is certainly proud projects including the Rail Lands and Rail Trail, there is more than just bricks and mortar. The removal of the old hospital and cleaning up of the iconic landmark site is one of those items Mr McShane has been able to tick off his to do list. “Now that it’s gone people almost forget about it,” he said. “When I came here the building was appalling and a joke, it was Beirut on a hill. Fortunately

the council before I arrived, had the foresight to buy it and that enabled us to then transform it from being an eyesore. The Rail Lands can be a bit the same at times because people have erased from their memory what that rail corridor used to be like.” He also believes it is not just the transformation of the rail corridor that has been significant but the activation and engagement of the community to use the community space that has been key to the project’s success. The renewal of the CBD over a four or five year period has also been significant and even down to the dog park. “That park is loved by people and dogs, of course,” he said. The James Morrison Academy of Music was another task completed under the watch of Mr McShane, and another one of those tasks, that had to be fast tracked to make it happen. “That was a hell of a lot of work in a very short time frame but it worked,” he said. And still in the arts and culture space, there was the takeover of the Riddoch Art Gallery, when the premier art space was on its knees and so close to having to close its doors. “The art collection now belongs to the city instead of the State Government and it was a great deal,” Mr McShane said. “The State Government cut us as cheque for two million and then we handed it back to claim our artworks. In fact, the increase in arts and cultural events, like the Fringe, has been amazing, as well.” The retiring city chief said proof these type of events were

working and generating interest was the increase in private sector support. “Councils cannot do it all,” Mr McShane said. “Councils have to be about making sure there are things to do – not just bricks and mortar.” And while his departure has him firmly in the spotlight, Mr McShane has been around local government long enough to know just how it all works. “CEOs don’t do it by themselves,” he said. “You have councils that bring a broad strategic focus and then the role of the administration is to deliver on that to ensure outcomes

for the community.” What we have done over the past seven years, much of it has been extended from work done previously, We do stand on the shoulders of other who have come before.” Above - Mount Gambier Mayor Lynette Martin wishes out going CEO Mark McShane all the best.

BELL CHIMES IN ON DRUG & ALCOHOL DEBATE Member for Mount Gambier Troy Bell has called on the State Government to take action on community calls for a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility for the region. Mr Bell’s comments come as a long-running petition with 3,771 signatures was tabled in the House of Assembly last week. Addressing State Parliament, the Independent MP said the number of names on the petition was indicative of how strongly this issue resonates across the Limestone Coast region. “The lack of adequate drug and alcohol addiction facilities and services has been an issue for this region for years and years, long before I became an MP,” he said. “Addiction doesn’t just impact the individual – it impacts families, friends, workplaces, the whole community.” Mr Bell said he had looked into several service models and programs being delivered in regional towns, and had been in contact with the team behind the MATRIX program currently being trialled in the Riverland. “This is an intensive outpatient program, which includes supported detoxification, education and opportunities for families and loved ones to be involved in the recovery process,” he said. “Dr Quentin Black and the PsychMed team work with the community to develop a model of treatment that suits the individual and the region in which they live. Then you’ve got facilities such as Warrnambool’s Western Region Drug and Alcohol Centre (WRAD) which is a not-for-profit organisation that

MOUNT GAMBIER HIGH SCHOOL

TWILIGHT TOURS

Monday 4 March 2019 at 4:15pm and 6:00pm operates within a community-based management model, which makes their services highly relevant to their region. WRAD staff work collaboratively with other health-related professionals and organisations and provide a diverse range of services to meet the multiple needs of people with substance misuse problems.” Mr Bell praised the ongoing work of the Substance Misuse Limestone Coast group, including Sophie Bourchier, Dr Judy Nagy, Sue Mutton and Sergeant Andy Stott, saying they were providing frontline training, lobbying for funding and most importantly, keeping the issue on the public agenda. Any facility or services earmarked for the region should be equipped to handle a wide range of needs said Mr Bell, for both now and into the future. “Who can predict what will be the

drug of choice in five years time?” he said. “Ice gets a lot of attention and deservedly so, but national statistics indicate that opiate use, including heroin and prescription drugs such as Oxycontin are on the rise. Alcohol is, and always has been, a major issue for Australians of all ages so we need a facility that can handle all these needs now, plus additional needs into the future.” Mr Bell said there is ‘no one-size-fitsall approach’ to addressing substance misuse. “Every region’s needs are different,” said Mr Bell. “The programs and models are out there – now we need the financial backing and support of this State Government. This is an issue that transcends politics - we must all work together for solutions, for the good of the community.”

WELLNESS & WELLBEING FESTIVAL The Chronic Illness Limestone Coast Support Group is hosting a Wellness and Wellbeing Festival this Saturday.

AT A GLANCE

HEAD TO YAKKA PARK TO CELEBRATE 120TH LUCINDALE SHOW Lucindale Show is celebrating its 120th anniversary this weekend in what promises again to be a fun weekend out for all the family. The traditional show events are on Saturday with the equestrian program on Sunday. It has always been held annually on the last Saturday of February.Attractions incude Horses in Action, Show Rides, Indoor Exhibits, Show Bags, Childrens Activities, Face Painting, Trade Sites and full catering. Purchase an unlimited ride wristband to have unlimited fun on our rides. Entry is $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and $5 for students 10+ years. There is also a $25 family pass (2 Adults, 2 Children) with kids under 10 free.

BOOK DONATIONS IN THE SPOTLIGHT Last Thursday was International Book Giving Day and United Way Glenelg is hoping people will still jump on board and donate books to their Dolly Parton Imagination Library, which hands out books to local children to ensure they are experiencing reading and building up their own personal libraries. Now in its eighth year, International Book Giving Day shines a light on literacy and sets the goal of getting more books into the hands of as many children as possible, thereby increasing children’s access to and enthusiasm for books. United Way Glenelg executive officer Nicole Carr said The Dolly Parton Imagination Library was increasing the rate of early childhood exposure to reading in the Glenelg Shire by giving children regular access to free books. “Each year, 130 children are born in the

Glenelg Shire and United Way Glenelg believes these children should receive books from birth without the barrier of a waiting list,” Mrs Carr said. “The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is a low-cost early intervention initiative and at just $90 per year per child, the earlier we make this investment, the greater the return will be later in life. Research shows children with access to at least 20 books in the home reach an overall higher level of educational attainment than those without, regardless of the parent’s education, occupation, and socio-economic status.” Those interested in making a donation can do so by visiting www.unitedwayglenelg. com.au/imagination-library or contact Nicole Carr on 0410 513 305 or mail@unitedwayglenelg.com.au The Dolly Parton Imagination Library provides local children aged 0-5 with new high-quality books and educational resources free of charge to families each month with support from Portland Aluminium, Service Clubs and individuals through the United Way Glenelg Workplace Giving Program, to which the Glenelg Shire Glenelg Shire staff are part of the “giving” program. Above - Kalbarri Kindergarten prekinder children Jack Stannard, Emilia Powell & Milla Lippelgoes, along with Nicole Carr, United Way Glenelg would love to see the donation of more books.

ROTARY CLUB OF PORTLAND BAY CELEBRATES 1000TH MEETING The Rotary Club Portland Bay Inc. celebrated its 1000th meeting, holding the milestone event at the Glenelg Shire offices.Council was thrilled to host one of the town’s most recognised community service organisations.

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - SOMETIMES DUMB THINGS HAPPEN… By ROBBIE TANSEL People sometimes ask me if the things I write about are true. Some people think that I make things up. The honest truth is that 99 percent of what I write about is completely true. My mum has spent the bulk of the last forty years in prison for example. My children Shaquille and LeBron have truthfully ruined my life as I often talk about in my articles.The honest truth is that I’m actually not creative enough to make most of this stuff up. I simply tell the story as it happened. Having said that, it is often exaggerated a little. My mum is not always in jail. Sometimes she gets away on a good behaviour bond or home detention. Shaquille and LeBron haven’t ruined my life. It wasn’t that good to start off with. Mind you having Shaquille sitting next to me reading over my shoulder as I write this is not improving my state of mind at all. He’s a moron. He just read that. But as I said, what I write about is based on a true story. It just seems that a lot of dumb things happen to me. Let me share a recent example. Earlier this week I travelled to Victor Harbor for a work commitment. After the four and a half hour drive, I arrived at my really quite nice accommodation for the night.

I was very excited to find that my room came with a bath tub. I’m not sure if I’ve talked about it before but I love having baths. I regularly read books while having a lengthy soak in the tub. On this occasion, after arriving at about 9:30pm I decided to fill the bath and enjoy a relaxing soak. Everything was going fine. I laid back, opened my book and relaxed. Possibly at this point you’re waiting to hear about me dropping my book into the water. Well in over twenty years of reading in the bath I’ve never dropped the book into the water. hat would be stupid. The problem came when I got out of the bath. Obviously when you exit the bath you pull out the plug to release the water. Unfortunately on attempting this very simple task, the plug wouldn’t budge. I tried to grab hold of different parts of it, the edge, the centre, the other side, with my left hand, my right hand, turning it, but still no luck. My go to move when I have this problem in my home bathtub is to get the flannel and use it to get a better grip on the plug. With this in mind I grabbed the flannel and attempted to release the plug. The plug still wouldn’t move. I tried drying my hands, but of course they got wet again as soon as I reached into the bath. “It’s water,” Shaquille just told me. Stop reading over my shoulder you feral. Go to bed. By this point I was getting quite distressed. “I’m not going to be able to get the plug out,” I thought. “I’ll want to have a bath in the morning and I won’t

be able to get it to a good temperature adding hot water to this water which will be cold by tomorrow. I’m going to have to go to the hotel lobby to ask if someone can come and take the plug out of my bath. They’ll think I’m stupid. Like Shaquille who is still driving me bonkers reading over my shoulder.” I decided that I needed to stick something down the side of the plug to try to lever it out of the hole. This would have been much easier at home where there are a variety of tools and implements available. Unfortunately on this occasion I was limited to whatever was in the hotel room. The best I could come up with was a tea spoon from the meagre tea and coffee facilities in the room. I jammed the tip of the spoon between the outside of the plug and edge of the plughole. It didn’t seem

WORKS UNDERWAY AT PENOLA CEMETERY The Wattle Range Council parks and gardens team will soon be spending some time at the Penola Lawn Cemetery scarifying the lawns. The scarifying is necessary to eliminate excessive thatching which is causing uneven surfaces and high edges. It will have an impact on the overall appearance of the grounds until new growth occurs and we anticipate it will take about a month to recover. Council understands the sensitive nature of the grave sites and we apologise for the inconvenience and unsightliness. For any enquiries please ring the Engineering office on (08)8733 0901. lifestyle1.net | 23

to be achieving anything. I flipped the spoon and used the handle instead. This seemed to be moving it a little, and sure enough I managed to work the plug free. A potentially embarrassing outcome had been avoided. The only wrinkle in this story is that I dried the spoon that had been in my filthy bath water and put it back into the cupboard with the cups and saucers, ready for a future guest to utilise. Surely the cleaning staff will check the cups, saucers and spoons, observe that they don’t seem to have been used and leave them as they are. I bet no one who reads this makes a cup of tea in Victor Harbor without giving the utensils a thorough clean now. If you’ve ever shared a cell block with my mother, email me at robbietansel@ gmail.com

AT A GLANCE DARTMOOR ENDS UP TOP OF THE CLASS Dartmoor Primary School students have walked and strolled their way to success as part of Walk to School month in the Glenelg Shire. Dartmoor Primary School has received the title of Walk to School winners after earning the highest participation rate in the shire, with an impressive 82.86 per cent student participation rate in the program through the month of October last year. Merino Consolidated School had the next highest participation rate, followed by Bolwarra Primary School, proving that the shire’s smallest communities were the most engaged in the program. The VicHealth Walk to School campaign encourages primary school students across Victoria to walk to and from school during October. More than 746 schools participated in the program last year, with 147,776 individual students undertaking a walk, scooter or bike ride during the month long campaign. Mayor Cr Anita Rank congratulated Dartmoor Primary School upon their success.“Every student at Dartmoor Primary participated in the Walk to School program during October. It is outstanding achievement and a great example of community

spirit to see the entire school taking on the month long challenge together,” she said. “The students walked a combined total of 500km, with nearly 700 individual walks registered. For a school of just 21 students, the results speak for themselves. The Dartmoor community should be incredibly proud of their efforts.” For their winning efforts Dartmoor Primary School received the $2000 grand prize, which was put towards the purchase of new bicycles which will assist their students to continue the healthy habits they formed during the walk to school month.

Mayor Cr Rank also commended the efforts of the other 13 local schools that participated in Walk to School month in 2018. “We have been pleased to see record local participation in Walk to School Month, with 1127 students in the Glenelg Shire taking part. Every school and student taking part is a winner, and we encourage everyone to keep the momentum going in 2019,” she said.

READY & WILLING TO ADVANCE AUSTRALIA FAIR

Five members of the Mount Gambier community were granted Australian citizenship following a citizenship ceremony officiated by the City of Mount Gambier earlier this month. Mayor Lynette Martin OAM presided over the ceremony where the candidates, surrounded by family and friends, pledged their loyalty and commitment to Australia through the citizenship pledge. Soroptimist Mount Gambier were also in attendance continuing their tradition of presenting candidates with a gift to welcome them as new Australian citizens and the ceremony concluded with the singing of the Australian National Anthem, performed by Chanceline Kakule and Amy Grouse. New citizen Andrew Harvey arrived in Australia four and half years ago from the United Kingdom and has resided in Mount Gambier for the past 12 months. Reflecting on the ceremony, Andrew described the occasion as dignified and as solemn as it should be. “Conferring citizenship on someone

is the greatest gift a nation can offer and I feel very humbled to receive it,” Mr Harvey said “It was a huge honour to receive my citizenship, Australia has made me feel welcome and I always felt I should make a full commitment to this amazing country.

TRUE CRIME AUTHOR HEADED TO MOUNT GAMBIER THIS WEEK Award winning author Maryrose Cuskelly will be at the Mount Gambier Library this Wednesday at 7pm to launch her book Wedderburn, based on a true crime triple murder committed in central Victoria in 2014. Team Leader Library Programs Kristi Leamey said the author wanted to investigate the complexity of human characters and behaviours and the dark secrets that fester within small towns. She wrote Wedderburn using factual evidence, her time spent at the trial and interviews with the local community. “In October 2014, 65 year old Ian Jamieson secured a hunting knife in a sheath to his belt and climbed through the wire fence separating his property from that of his much younger neighbour Greg Holmes,” Ms Leamey said. “Less than 30 minutes later, Greg Holmes was dead, stabbed more than 25 times. Ian Jamieson returned home, grabbed his two shotguns, walked across the road and shot his neighbour’s mother and step-father. He then returned to his home, with a trail of blood following him, and called the police to report the crimes.” The author event will be facilitated by ABC South East presenter Selina Green who will ask the big questions; is it ever justifiable to kill a man? What does it take to provoke murder? And does a killer lurk within us all? “Ian Jamieson was an unassuming, hard working, law abiding farmer in a small community,” Ms Leamey said. “He was close to fulfilling his dream of retiring in Tasmania, with property already purchased. And now he will most likely die behind bars.” Described as a farming dispute gone wrong, some of Ian Jamieson’s friends believe that he should not be judged on this savage crime. But how can you justify a triple murder? Ms Cuskelly is no stranger to the world of true crime, having won the Thunderbold Prize’for Crime Writing for her essay Well Before Dark, based on the abduction of Mackay schoolgirl Marilyn Wallman. This is a free community event with limited seating. For bookings please contact the Mount Gambier Library (08)8721 2540 or book online www.mountgambier.sa.gov.au and follow the prompts.

LIONESS CLUB SET TO HOST ANNIVERSARY BREAKAWAY The Lioness Club of Mount Gambier has barely had time to draw breath from planning and celebrating its 40th anniversary last year and now its members are hosting another major event – the 2019 Blue Lake Breakaway. And speaking of anniversaries, this weekend’s Blue Lake Breakaway is the 30th Breakaway since they became a part of the Lioness culture in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Basically Breakways are the Lioness’ answer to district conferences favoured by so many other service clubs and with only two clubs in South Australia during those early days, they were cordially invited to be part of a Victorian event and that tradition has been maintained. This weekend, when the Breakaway comes to Mount Gambier and the Silver Birch Motel, from Friday to Sunday, it will be the third time the Lioness Club of Mount Gambier has hosted the event, which is primarily social with a good dose of education, as well as providing the host club a chance to showcase their own region. The Blue Lake Breakaway incorporates eight Victorian clubs and two South Australian clubs and will see up to 70 Lionesses converge on Mount Gambier for the jam packed three day program.

Mount Gambier Lioness Wynne Turner said the Breakaway was a key opportunity to network with other clubs regarding fundraising ideas and community project ideas as well. Friday night is all about fun with each of the clubs performing a skit. Saturday morning sees the first of the guest speakers taking to the stage with Lion Marilyn Miller OAM, the driving force behind the Lions Mobile Skin Screening Bus, and local lawyer and raconteur Bill DeGaris set to entertain. The mobile skin screening service is a South Australian initiative and the Victoria Lioness clubs are keen to investigate starting a service their side of the border. Bill DeGaris will be regaling the Lionesses with his popular Murder, Mystery and Mayhem performance. The afternoon is when the region becomes the playground of the Breakaway ladies with bus tours with a focus on the wineries. The evening will see some official proceedings with a cake cutting ceremony to mark the anniversary and entertainment from the James Morrison Trio. Ockert Le Roux is the guest speaker on Sunday morning, before the lifestyle1.net | 28

Lionesses hold a memorial service at Umpherston Cave to remember those members lost in the past 12 months. The Lioness Club of Mount Gambier has been helped by the generous sponsorship of the City of Mount Gambier, the Mount Gambier Community Bendigo Bank and Member for Barker Tony Pasin. It has been six months of planning with the past few weeks seeing regular working bees as the local members put together gift bags with local produce and mementos, as well as creating the name lanyards and ensuring everything is ready for this Friday night. The Lioness Club of Mount Gambier meets on the second and third

Wednesday or each month, alternating between business and dinner meetings and the club currently boasts 26 members. The club has another major event to prepare for in October when the Lions District Conference is hosted in the Blue Lake City.

FEDERAL HEALTH MINISTER TO VISIT MOUNT GAMBIER

ROOFING

Member for Barker Tony Pasin will host the Federal Minister for Health, the Hon. Greg Hunt MP (pictured right) in Mount Gambier later this month. The Minister is coming to Mount Gambier at Mr Pasin’s invitation for a community health forum on the evening of February 27. “Better health care has been a priority for our Government," Mr Pasin said. "Immunisations are at the highest rate on record, we’ve listed over 1,900 medicines worth almost $10 billion on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme, and we are doubling public hospital funding compared to Labor, increasing funding from $13.3 billion in 2012-13 to $23.4 billion in 2020-21 (a 76% increase), more Australians are now seeing their doctor without having to pay and we’ve invested over $175 million in MRI licences – one of which I delivered for Mount Gambier. I know that health care is an important issue in the Limestone Coast, and that there is more work to do. Thanks to good economic management our Government has brought the Federal budget into a position where we can invest for the future for better health and education outcomes. I’ve invited the Federal Minister to Mount Gambier so he can hear directly from the Limestone Coast community about the health priorities for our community, including support for drug and alcohol rehabilitation. I know alcohol and other drug abuse is an issue for the Limestone Coast and it is something I’ve been speaking about to the Minister for a long time. My advocacy has seen Mount Gambier receive funding for one of the first Local Drug Action Teams in the country, the Good Sports Program rollout across the region and Focus One set up a dedicated office in Mount Gambier. These initiatives are small but very important parts of a larger drug action strategy. I

encourage members of the community to come along and have your say about the health priorities for the Limestone Coast.”

The Green Triangle has been included in a Federal Government initiative announced at the weekend by Prime Minister Scott Morrison. Nine initial Regional Forestry Hubs were identified to boost the growth of forest industries in Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, Tasmania, New South Wales and Queensland. “Today, we are sowing the seeds for the first of our Regional Forestry Hubs under the $20 million National Forest Industries Plan," Mr Morrison said. “We want the Green Triangle key forestry industries to be even stronger, and today’s announcement will ensure a brighter and more secure future. This plan will protect and grow the Green Triangle’s vital forestry industry, create more jobs, and open up opportunities to build new and improved roads, rail and port facilities. Around 52,000 Australians are directly employed in growing and processing our forest products. Tens of thousands more jobs are indirectly supported by a sector that contributes more than $23 billion to the national economy.” Member for Barker Tony Pasin said the Green Triangle Hub has been welcomed by the forest and wood products industry as an opportunity to help better prepare for future challenges and opportunities. “The assessments that come from the Green Triangle Hub will provide industry with regional data that is not currently available, bringing potential to support new investment in the sector,” the Member for Barker said. “This will assist our region to identify future investment and other opportunities for the forest industries in rural and regional Australia. For the Green Triangle communities, the Regional Forestry Hubs also have the potential to create rural and regional jobs to deliver on our promise of 1.25 million new jobs over the next five years. The end result will be more jobs, better returns to business, more investment, and greater economic security in the Limestone Coast community and for the nation.” Assistant Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources Senator Richard Colbeck said the hubs were a commitment in the Australian Government’s National Forest Industries Plan and will support strategic planning of future needs for the industry in the region. “The Morrison Government has committed $12.5 million to the Regional Forestry Hubs as well as research and development elements of the National Forest Industries Plan to further grow Australia’s forest industries and set the industry up for the future,” Minister Colbeck said. “The Plan ambitiously aims to deliver a billion new trees to meet a projected quadrupling of global demand for timber products by 2050. This is all about delivering the right tress in the right places at the right scale. A billion trees with also allow the Liberal National Government to capture 18 million tonnes of greenhouse gasses per year by 2030. he hubs will involve the industry, all levels of government and local communities working together on the issues and opportunities for forestry in the regions. Funding will be available to support strategic planning, technical assessments and analyses that will contribute to infrastructure and other decisions by investors. The hubs have been identified in regions with existing lifestyle1.net | 31

concentrations of forests available for harvest, processing plants, transport routes and a skilled forestry workforce and the work now begins to determine the size and make up of each hub. Locations of the pilot Regional Forestry Hubs are: • South West - Western Australia • Green Triangle – South Australia and Victoria • North/North West - Tasmania • North East - New South Wales Locations of Regional Forestry Hubs that will follow the pilot hubs: • Gippsland - Victoria • South West Slopes - New South Wales • Central West - New South Wales • South East – Queensland • North – Queensland.

TIGERS CONSOLIDATE TOP SPOT IN NAILBITER

TOP LEVEL SKI RACING THIS WEEKEND AT ROBE

In the early Division one baseball game Saturday afternoon, Tigers consolidated their position at the top of the ladder with a one run tenth inning win over Federal. The Demons were first on the scoreboard in the bottom of the fifth when catcher, Josh Wilsmore, singled to leftfield and scored on a wild throw from the Tigers shortstop in an attempt to get Kane McMillan out on a force to second base. In the top of the sixth, Tigers evened the score when Tyler Horrigan found himself at first base after an error by the Federal shortstop. He crossed home on Jesse Foster’s two base hit to leftfield. Federal tripled their score in the even inning when they scored two more to go ahead in the game. Sam Shepherd singled again to left-field and scored on Clay Carpenter’s deep hit to centre-field. Carpenter subsequently crossed the plate on Gavin Smith’s sacrifice fly to right-field. Tigers hauled one back in the top of the eighth after Brodie Foster hit safely to left-field and scored on a catcher’s passed ball. They tied the game up again in the ninth when Dyllan Lane drew a walk and scored on Brayden Morton’s single to centrefield. Federal had no reply in the bottom of the ninth sending the game to extra inning. For Tigers in the top of the tenth, Brodie Foster singled to right-field and scored on a wild throw from the pitcher. Jesse Foster whose hit caused the wild throw scored on Alex Harkness’s double to left-field giving Tigers a two run break. Shepherd, for Federal, hit safely to right-field and scored their sole run for the dig on Travis Younghusband’s hit down the line to first base to give Tigers a one run victory. Tigers had eight safehits, three base on ball, ten strikeouts and made four errors. The Demons had ten safehits, four base on ball, five strikeouts and made two errors. Interestingly, all but one run scored in the game were unearned. It was one way traffic in the second game as South made light work of Central. South had a night out with the bat picking up sixteen safehits, two walks, four strikeouts and made a solitary error. Central on the other hand had only six safehits, five base on ball, four strikeouts and made an horrendous eight errors.

If water sports are your thing you should head to Robe this weekend. If you are a petrol head or someone with the need for speed, you should also find a place on the Robe foreshore. And the good news is, if you would just like to visit the seaside town for some good food and wine, that will also be on offer as Robe hosts a world class ski racing event for the first time. Fury on the Bay is a Ski Racing Australia event, in fact, it is the 2019 World Championship Selection Race and will see 60 teams, with around 10 personnel per team, heading to Robe to race a mere 100m from shore, in what looms as a spectators’ paradise. Given Australians have won the past five world titles, this is a rare opportunity to watch the best in the ski racing world in action. It has taken hard work and the unwavering support of the Robe District Council and local business but organisers are hopeful the staging of this event will result in an annual opportunity to host a high profile race. Jamie Aitken, the brains behind the successful Robe Boat Show, has also been at the forefront of securing the world championship selection race, having been approached by two enthusiasts, including Mount Gambier’s Andrew Donehue, at the 2018 Robe Boat Show, to investigate the chances of Robe securing such a high profile event. “Each year, Ski Racing Australia chooses a different venue for the world championships selection race,” Jamie said. “When they asked if I would consider putting in a submission, I said you bet I would’.” The beauty of this type of ski racing event, is it is open water and does not require smooth racing conditions. “We will be looking at boats travelling up to 150kmh, racing six to eight boats at a time,” Jamie said. Each race runs for 50km or 70km as the competitors fight for a place to attend this year’s World Championships in France. The fantastic boat ramp facilities at Robe and the chance for a long stretch of spectator areas to watch the high octane racing, with the races happening between the Robe Hotel and Long Beach, was always going to be a drawcard, as well as the on shore “pit lane” type area available

for the teams – the area used for the Robe Boat Show for the past nine years. “My first concern was the tyranny of distance in Robe being chosen but I soon found out they travel to places far and wide, including Darwin, as an example, for a weekend of racing,” Jamie said. “Robe not only had the physical facilities wo be awarded the event, but also Robe has shown time and time again that it is very, very good at hosting lots of people. Robe goes from 1500 people to 15,000 after Boxing Day every year and we cope. Our accommodation, restaurants and cafes and the whole kit and caboodle steps up.” The Robe Tourism Association, retailers and other business support is what ensures every summer goes smoothly in the seaside town, and also backs these type of large events. “The new Mayor Alison Nunan has been really supportive, the council workers do a great job getting everything ready for these type of events and we have been able to pull all this together thanks to the support of local business, through sponsorship,” Jamie said. The heavy hitters from Ski Racing Australia, including the president, will be in Robe this weekend, meaning the right people will see just how Robe handles this event, with the view to becoming a permanent venue on the national ski racing calendar. “This is also a chance to attract a new sort of person to Robe because this is the first time we have held an event like this,” Jamie said. But Robe will also remain true to brand and the main street will be blocked off to give a carnival type atmosphere to the two days of racing, with local food and wine in the spotlight, and entertainment also providing a backdrop to the on water action. “We don’t think it is unreasonable to expect 4000 visitors to Robe this weekend,” Jamie said. “The accommodation figures already indicate around 2000 guests have booked already.” The racing includes male and female senior races, as well as boy and girl junior races and there will be three or four races a day, each lasting around 90 minutes. Racing should get underway shortly after 9am both days.

LAKE GOES BACK TO BACK IN SCHOOL SWIMMING CARNIVAL The 2019 Mount Gambier High School Swimming Carnival was held last week with Lake successfully defending its 2018 title.Throughout the course of the day, students participated in four Championship Events (freestyle, breaststroke, butterfly and backstroke) as well as a number of highly entertaining novelty competitions. The Obstacle Course proved a particular favourite. The four Ironperson events were eagerly anticipated again this year, and competitors gave it their all to complete the challenging course with a photo finish seen in the Open Girls race. That was taken out by Madi Freeman (Mount), with Reid Kuller winning the boys event. In the Year8/9 category, Sarah Ritter (Tower) won the girls event, with Timothy Mutch (Lake) taking out the boys title. In the house championship, Lake came out on top by a convincing 130 points.

KANE & EMILY ON THE MONEY Basketball in the region was certainly put on the map the other week with firstly the Millicent Magic winning the women’s Country Basketball League with a victory over Geelong 74-62 and then the Mount Gambier Lakers winning the mens CBL premiership with a massive 11662 win over Bacchus Marsh. As always these victories come about based on the strength of the team performances but what an excellent individual performance from Lakers men’s playing coach Kane de Wit scoring 37 points including 10 three pointers. It may well prove to be Kane’s last game in a Lakers uniform as he has moved to Adelaide and will be playing for Forrestville in the winter season. Fair to say he will be missed! Fortunately for local fans, the star of the women’s grand final victory, Millicent’s Emily Winter, who scored 31 points in the title decider, to go with her 26 points from the preliminary final, is staying put and representing the reinvented Pioneers women’s team in the 2019 Premier League season. STILL TALKING MONEY It has recently been announced that LeBron James is the highest-paid NBA basketballer with earnings of $125million for the year. It’s the fifth consecutive year LeBron has topped the list so no surprise there but what I found the most interesting was that $74.7million is made off the court. He has lucrative endorsement deals with Nike, Coca-Cola and Beats By Dre, as well as investments in a Hollywood production company and the Blaze Pizza company. Golden State Warriors teammates Stephen Curry, $112m, and Kevin Durant, $91.5m, were second and third on the list. FINALS REVAMP We have just finished watching the eighth instalment of the Big Bash League, that is if you bothered to watch, and the finals system is again in the spotlight when for the sixth time in eight seasons, the team that finished top, in this case, the Hobart Hurricanes, bowed out at the semi final stage. Only the BBL06 champions Perth Scorchers have managed to translate a dominant home and away season into a title win prompting some calls for the introduction of the double chance for the top ranked teams. Mind you perhaps the lack of star power and the benign games from BBL08 should be a bigger concern for organisers.

UNDERMANNED DEMONS STILL SECURE VICTORY

LSE PENNANT BOWLS

Concordes United broke the game open in the first innings against Warriors Blue, hitting the ball all over the diamond care of Dana Jones, Julie Beck and Billie Jones. Melissa Brodie, for Concordes, started the second innings with a great shot up the middle, and Brandi Miller hit a fabulous single to right in the third. Unfortunately Concordes had trouble soaking up the pressure in the field, with inexperience showing through allowing plenty of Warriors base runners to get on. Jenna Burston and Nicole Vause had two hits each. Leyna Bruggemann took a few innings to hit her straps for Warriors but ended up striking out seven batters over five innings. In the other early game, Warriors White started promisingly, when Jessica Hillman hit a perfectly placed home run with Erin Chaplin on base. Wanderers fought back though and courtesy of consecutive hits from Fiona Finch, Jo Hart and Sarah Moretti they scored four runs of their own. A safe hit to Trish Seager and some heads up base running saw Wanderers skip out to a 7-2 lead, with Warriors really unable to get any type of rally going against Wanderers pitcher Cathy Whiting. Warriors however came back hard in the next innings, and a couple of hits teamed with a couple of costly fielding overthrows saw them peg the score back to 7-5. Ultimately though Wanderers had done enough, and their win was iced with a home run to Fiona Finch. Final score 8-5. The last game saw ladder leaders Demons take on Concordes White, who were both without regular key players for the encounter. The depth of Demons showed early, as they scored 3 runs in the first thanks to consecutive safe hits to Isabella Morale, Kelly Cawthorne and a two bagger to in form Cody Manning. Concordes tried to reply but after a lead of single to Jo Hopgood, Manning turned an excellent double play to bring the threat to an end. Despite safe hits to Tylar Kennett and Kia Hansen, Concordes could not string it together, and after a coupe of innings found themselves in a 9-1 hole. This prompted a pitching change for Concordes, and the slower pace of Hopgood

LOCAL SPORT MIL LEL CRICKETERS MAKING THEIR MARK ACROSS THE BORDER CHLOE MCKENZIE Last Friday night Chloe McKenzie headed to Mt Burr to play her usual Under 16 O’Donohue Shield match for Mil Lel. Saturday morning she fulfilled a media commitment before heading to Mil Lel to represent the club in the C Grade team. With her Cox Bros Shield commitments out of the way, it was time to head home, have something to eat, grab a couple of hours sleep and then jump in the car at 3am to head to the other side of Melbourne to play for her Premier League Club, Brunswick. That jam packed weekend is typical for the 16 year old Tenison Woods College student and for most of the year Chloe and her family are racki9ng up the kilometres as she looks to pursue her cricketing dream. Originally from East Gipplsland, the family moved to Mount Gambier 12 months ago, and after representing Victoria twice already at junior level in State cricket teams, she was determined to continue to take every opportunity available to build her skills as a cricketer. She is part of the Tenison Woods College High Performance Program and has continued to work her way through the elite pathway programs, representing the Western Waves, and being an integral part of the Under 17 girls team that was the Renegades Conference winner and runner-up in the Youth Premier League tournament. Chloe’s performances for the Western Waves saw her selected in the Renegades Country team to play in the Youth Super Series and along with those commitments next month, Chloe will then only have a short break before her

training with the regional cricket academy starts up again during winter. Chloe has been playing cricket since she was five years old, starting in formal competition as a 10 year old. “Dad was always playing cricket and I used to go to his club games and much around with the other kids,” Chloe said. She started playing with the boys as a 10 year old in the Under 13 competition and initially she focussed on bowling. “I didn’t enjoy batting as much then but when I went to the girls competition I did start taking batting more seriously.” Chloe is also a wicketkeeper, as well as usually batting at number three or four. Chloe’s cricketing hero is Sophie Molineux, who debuted for Australia last year. “Every team I’ve played for she played for and she comes from a town an hour away from my town and so I know her personally,” Chloe said. Cricket is cleary the teenager’s number one priority but she does also play hockey and is not only part of the West Hockey Club’s successful division one team but has also represented the region.

KAIDYN WEBER He’s represented the State in SAPSASA cricket and has been representing his region, both in South Australia and Victoria for the past few seasons. Kaidyn Weber is clearly a talent on the rise and his promotion to Mil Lel’s Barber Shield side as a 13 year old is testament to that talent. Kaidyn is doing what many young cricketers in the Mount Gambier & District Association do – take advantage of our geographic position that allows cricketers to follow elite pathways on both sides of the border. His season with the Western Waves this summer has been an unequivocal success and the opportunities are continuing. His Under 14 team came third in the Renegades Conference and from that Youth Premier League competition, Kaidyn was selected in the Renegades Country tam that has matches next month as part of the newly created Youth Super Series. From this competition, which is a 50 over format, a development squad from the four teams – Renegades Country, Renegades Metro, Stars Country and Stars Metro – will then be selected, so Kaidyn and his family might still have some kilometres to travel yet once the Youth Super Series is complete. Kaidyn is primarily a batter and these opportunities, initially sees him in the running for State election in Victoria. The Western Waves Waves play in Mortlake, Hamilton and Horsham and while Kaidyn is the only Mount Gambier based cricket

in the Renegades program, he did have fellow Mount Gambier players in his team at the regional championships. Kaidyn admits, having the opportunity to play A Grade for Mil Lel has really helped developed his cricket. “You are facing faster bowlers that can also move the ball and as a batsman that makes it a lot harder,” he said. The Mount Gambier High School student is also part of the school’s specialist cricket program which will also assist with his skill development. Josh Fidler, who runs that school program has been a huge influence on Kaidyn’s career, as has Jon Allcock, his Mil Lel team mate. The chance to play cricket in Adelaide for Glenelg has already presented itself and that could be another opportunity to make his mark on the South Australian scene. Cricket is definitely number one for Kaidyn, especially at the moment, but he is also looking to develop his football, making the move in 2019 from Kongorong in the Mid South East Football League to play for North Gambier in the Western Border Football League.

Mount Gambier’s Steve Lines vindicated his decision to head west for the final three rounds of the World Series Sprintcars after a phenomenal victory in round eight at Albany Speedway to register three successive wins at the venue in World Series competition. Lines and the Horrell Motorsport team made the tough decision to pursue the final three rounds of the series in Western Australia despite being ineligible for any championship prize money as they were not contracted to the series, however the lure of potentially claiming the first WSS win for the team and for crew chief Dave Sharman inspired the squad to head west, and they were instantly rewarded. The popular Lines started the night by qualifying in sixth while Jason Kendrick looked unstoppable to claim Revolution Racegear QuickTime honours ahead of Ben Ellement, James McFadden, Kerry Madsen and Darren Mollenoyux who got the last minute call up to drive the Diamond Bay Motorsport #W26 in the absence of Brooke Tatnell. Kendrick failed to finish heat one with a flat right front tyre as Madsen grabbed second, with Mollenoyux claiming an impressive third in heat two ahead of Element in fifth. McFadden started seventh to win heat three while Lines retired after the first lap due to a reported driveline issue, casting doubt over his chances to salvage enough points for a good spot on the feature race. However, Lines bounced back to

run second in heat six to lock in to the Bronze edition of the Top 8 Shootout, with McFadden backing up his first round to run second in his heat while Madsen stayed out of trouble on a difficult track to settle for seventh. The Shootout provided a positive gain for Lines who was able to move up to the third row for the main event, while Madsen lost his provisional front row start to Jason Kendrick who surged from the Silver Shootout to claim the quickest time of the night with a blistering 12.68 second lap and secure pole position alongside the four-time and reigning World Series Champion. McFadden set a blistering pace from the onset, setting the quickest lap of the race on lap two and within four laps was dealing with tail-end traffic. Kendrick was holding on to second until the Hit 92.9 #W11 began to fade from lap 11, allowing Madsen to assume second, and just 5 laps later, Lines would claw his way up to third, placing the top three in the championship in the top three spots on the racetrack. McFadden was in scintillating form, dislodging lapped traffic with ease and clearly very relaxed at the wheel, lapping the field up to 8th position and doing everything he needed to close the championship points gap that had opened up to 161 points. Sadly, his attempt to ride the growing mid-track ledge in turn one turned sour with just twelve laps remaining, sending the Monte Motorsport #W17 upside down and tragically out of the race. Madsen assumed the lead on the

restart with Lines seemingly losing his grasp of the leader until Madsen made an uncommon mistake on the exit of turn four with just seven laps remaining and left Lines with enough momentum to masterfully pounce at the end of the straight to take over the lead. Amazingly, Lines pulled away right up until the chequered flag was unfurled, but as he entered turn three for the final time on his way to victory, Rusty Hickman caught the same ledge that had earlier claimed McFadden and crunched the Peerless #V40 into the turn-two wall, forcing a greenwhite-chequer restart. Lines caught the field off-guard as he restarted right on the entry to turn three and was never headed, while Madsen settled for second and Darren Mollenoyux

advanced from ninth to snare third. Jack Lee received an America Racer right-rear tyre for his amazing Hard Charging antics that passed 12 cars, starting 19th and finishing 7th. The focus now turns to the final two rounds of the series at the Perth Motorplex this Friday and Saturday, where Lines will attempt to defend his seven point lead over Madsen, while McFadden will have to dig deep to salvage the series, sitting 230 points behind Madsen.
