COVER - JENS HOTEL - STILL BRINGING THE HEART OF THE CITY TO LIFE The best of both worlds – that’s what Mount Gambier’s Jens Hotel offers, with its stunning 19th century facade that pays homage to the early days of Mount Gambier’s oldest hotel, and the majestic central staircase and chandelier, still popular for wedding and formal photos, merged with the facilities demanded of the 21st century pub goer – large flat screen television, playing sport from across the country and, indeed, the world, as well as the latest poker machines, betting facilities and a remodelled outdoor area. The hotel underwent a massive redevelopment two years ago and it has now added some new faces as part of the Jens Hotel team. Talana Crute is the new gaming manager and is excited to be able to unveil a raft of new machines that have never been seen in Mount Gambier, while Stacey Von Stanke has taken on the bistro and bar, where there is a new vegie bar and the salad bar remains one of the most popular in the city. And the new faces are just the start of what is set to be even more changes on the horizon with more renovations just around the corner and a new menu to be launched in the next month. Put simply, Jens Hotel has gone from strength to strength as it has looked to bring the city centre back to life. There is the UBET Sports Bar – the only UBET facility outside metropolitan Adelaide – with its upgraded pressed tin bar; spacious seating area, wall to

On average 22% of all restaurant meals include chips.

wall screens, as well as Fox Sports HD throughout the hotel so you don’t need to miss a minute of the action across every imaginable sporting contest. The Sports Bar is also perfectly located adjacent to the dining room so you can start your evening with some casual drinks before sitting down and enjoying the range of burgers that have fast become a speciality of Jens, as well as the usual delicious pub fare you’ve come to expect from the Jens kitchen. The Sports Bar also flows into a cafe style dining area that later this year will see breakfast added to the Jens menu and then there’s the newly established beer garden that caters for 100 patrons, either for a casual catch up with friends, or a private function.

A Melbourne inner city laneway vibe would best describe Jens Hotel’s outdoor space and while the interior is very much about modern facilities, there is still plenty of nods to the past with historic shots of the iconic hotel over its 170 year history holding pride of place on the walls, while the stunning fireplaces also look set to be fired up for the winter months. Jens also looks to showcase local drops where possible, particularly the Limestone Coast’s red wines, on which the region has built its reputation in the wine industry. “We get a lot of tourists through and they always want to try something local,” manager Aaron Davis said. “And as a local business you want to support

REMEMBERING A VOLUNTEER WITH NO PEER Many a great love story started in this exact same way but no matter how these stories start, when they last more than six decades you know they are special. That could be no more true than for Shirley and Roy Underwood, who met while both serving in the army at Woodside, in the Adelaide Hills. “She didn’t really think that much of me but I guess I grew on her, or maybe I wore her down,” Roy said. The couple exchanged vows in 1954 and were inseparable for the next 62 years before Shirley passed away on March 14. Shirley was Adelaide born but spent much of her formative years in the Sunraysia but the couple moved back to Roy’s hometown of Mount Gambier two years after tying the knot, where they started and raised their family – three daughters, Wendy, Kerry and Lesley. Much of their life, outside of family, revolved around the RSL – one of the many places where Shirley was an active volunteer – and so last week’s ANZAC Badge Day was not only Roy’s first without his beloved wife, but it was the first time Shirley was not on hand to organise the event, as she did so many RSL events – with military precision. But Roy was still determined to continue their tradition and he was on hand last Thursday, helping collect money. This ANZAC Day will also be different as Roy heads down Commercial Street on the march alone and Shirley’s

absence will also be strongly felt at the ANZAC Day clash between North Gambier and South Gambier, where she used to toss the coin for the A Grade netball clash, as well as present the medal, named in her honour, to the best player on court. This year, that honour will fall to her daughter Kerry. To the Underwood family, Shirley was a much loved mother, mother-inlaw, nanna and great nanna but she was just as loved and respected outside the four walls of the Underwood home given her willingness to roll up her sleeves and volunteer for a variety of community organisations. It all started with the Girl Guides Association in 1964 and she did not stop helping community groups from that day forward. “She volunteered at the Brownies once the girls started going,” Roy said. That kickstarted a five decade association with Girl Guides that saw Shirley lead the Brownies for 18 years, was district commissioner for seven, was divisional commissioner for five, as well as a raft of other high ranking administrative roles. Not surprisingly, in 2007, she was awarded life membership of the Girl Guides Association. Shirley was also active at the girls’ kindergarten and school – Umpherston Kindergarten, Mount Gambier North School and Mount Gambier High School – working on mother’s club committees, in the canteen and on school council. “Nothing was more important than family to Shirley and it

was because she wanted to be involved with the girls that her volunteering started in the first place,” Roy said. Shirley was also an active member of the local Red Cross from 1990, where she proved to be a jack of all trades. She worked in the hospital library and visiting patients, she worked in the now defunct baby capsule department, she was a driver, she worked in the Red Cross shop and was always on deck for Red Cross Badge Day. Her resume with the local cancer group is similar – she joined that cause, also in 1990, holding down the secretary and treasurer roles at different times and again front and centre in helping with badge day and Daffodil Day. But in more recent times it is her association with the RSL Women’s Auxiliary that took up much of her time and it was the place where she and Roy spent so much time working side by side. Their military backgrounds is what drew the couple to being involved, Shirley starting her involvement in 1988 and she was still the secretary of the women’s auxiliary right up until ill health got the better of her. ANZAC Badge Day, Legacy Badge Day and Remembrance Poppy Day all had her fingerprints all over them and she was also catering coordinator for a decade, as well as the State delegate for 10 years and in 2003, she was awarded life membership. Fellow auxiliary member Margie Winterfield, who was friends with Shirley for 30 years, had a front

row seat to the hard working volunteer. “She taught me everything I know and there is no way you can measure what she did here at the RSL,” Margie said. “She was just so organised and you knew if Shirley was doing it, it would get done and done well.” Shirley wasn’t one for accolades, though, but that didn’t stop her being named Mount Gambier Senior of the Year in 2001; Mount Gambier Citizen of the Year in 2003 and then receiving an Order of Australia Medal in 2012. “She

was non-plussed by awards,” Roy said. “She was always grateful and proud to be recognised but she was just about getting things done and she really didn’t want the recognition.” Above - Shirley Underwood presenting her medal to Caroline Davey at last year’s ANZAC Day clash. CONT. PAGE 24

NOTHING SHORT OF INSPIRATIONAL

Imagine waking up one morning and finding yourself legally blind after being able to see the night before. This was the reality for Ben Pettingill, a 24-year-old who was left with only 2% of his vision at the age of 16 due to a rare genetic syndrome called Leber’s Hereditary Optic Neuropathy. However, this has never stopped Ben from living to his full potential, with his determination and zest for life clearly showing through his participation in fast-paced adrenaline sports, hiking the Kokoda trail and completing a Spartan obstacle course race. Tracey Wanganeen, SA Country South’s coordinator for StandBy, Australia’s leading suicide postvention program, was truly inspired by Ben’s incredible story. Tracey met Ben through her work with fundraising incorporation Ski for Life, a group dedicated to raising awareness and promoting mental

health and suicide prevention. Ben joined Ski for Life in 2018 and is the ambassador of the team. Ben has competed in various water-skiing events, including the Southern 80, which is the fastest water-skiing event in the Southern Hemisphere. Now, thanks to a very generous donation received by Tracey from the Longriders Christian Motorcycle Club and valued support from Soroptimist International, Ben is soon on his way to Mount Gambier to share his inspiring messages of True Vision and Limitless Vision. “We’ve been really fortunate with all the community support,” Tracey said. Ben will be speaking at 5 of the high schools in the area throughout his week here and then delivering a community session at the Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre on Tuesday, May 7, at 7.30pm. Tracey hopes that members of the general public will be able to attend

and is hoping the session will not only inspire people but also make them more aware of the various groups that are already out there to offer support in the Mount Gambier community. “It’s going to be very inclusive and hopefully accessible to everybody,” she said. She also wants to take the session as an opportunity to showcase groups such as the Longriders Christian Motorcycle Club to the community. There will be a gold coin donation box at the theatre and most of the funds raised on the night will be donated towards Ski for Life. Tracey described Ben as a genuinely lovely young man, who is a fantastic mental health ambassador that exudes confidence and is always willing to share his message with others. “He is inspiring because he has been able to accept what’s happened and has gone through the ups and downs to achieve what he wants to do in life, he hasn’t let anything hold him back.”

IT’S ALL ABOUT RECYCLING FOR JOJO

Limestone Coast sculptor, artist and educator JoJo Spook will be showcasing her work to the public in an exhibition titled Postcards from a Motorhome to open in Millicent on May 5. Postcards from a Motorhome will feature works created and inspired during JoJo’s six week solo journey to Queensland and back in a motorhome. It will also showcase the skills and insight gained through the completion of a residency with internationally acclaimed artist Sue Ryan, founder of GhostNets Australia. JoJo’s artist in residence stint was made possible with support from Country Arts SA through the Regional Arts Fund and GoFundme. GhostNets Australia is an environmental group that was founded on the premise of ghost nets, which are fishing nets lost or discarded at sea, being used as the basis for art and craft in the indigenous communities where they were collected. GhostNets Australia collects the nets washed up along Australian shorelines and transforms them into large-scale sculptures that travel the world to create awareness around the damage to ocean environments and sea life that is caused through the abundance of human rubbish and waste littering the ocean. For JoJo the residency enabled her to work with indigenous elders and learn traditional weaving techniques. It was also a unique opportunity to grow her recent work in transforming recycled household rubbish into art pieces reflecting the sea and environment. As part of the Artist in Residence program JoJo assisted to create a five-metre shark destined for Germany to convey the GhostNets message. Some of JoJo’s collected oddments from her trip have been transformed, curiously placed or featured in this large collection of her new work. Since her return to the region, JoJo has developed a unique and engaging crosscurricular engaging program called Ocean Rubbish. This program presents a unique way to create student and community awareness around the importance of recycling and reducing human impact on the environment. The program has been trialled at four schools in the Limestone Coast, and JoJo is looking to take the educational program around Australia. JoJo’s latest exhibition will include paintings, sculpture and jewellery and will open at the Millicent Civic & Arts Centre, George Street, Millicent on May 5, at 2pm. Stand Like Stone Foundation executive officer Georgie McKay will open Postcards from a Motorhome and the guest speaker at the opening will be Country Arts SA creative programs manager Merilyn de Nys. JoJo will also be running talks for local schools on Wednesday, May 8, with bookings essential through jspook@bigpond.com

OPEN INSPECTIONS

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - DEAR DOCTOR LOVE UNO… By ROBBIE TANSEL I need to be completely honest here. I have been having trouble coming up with a half decent premise for my articles recently. You probably noticed. At the best of times I’m not that entertaining, but the weak jokes are fewer and further between than usual lately. It’s so bad this week that I’m making out I received an email. (I did receive some emails by the way. Hi Gran. Well done mastering the email.) I’ll also be padding out my article with sentences that aren’t really necessary but will help me get to the word length I aim for. Like that one. I blame the politicians for me having to use this fake email scam again. Come on people. Start doing and saying dumb things for us to make fun of. Then I’ll have something to write about. Granted Bill Shorten had half a go declaring that Australia should put some money towards the estimated eight billion dollar restoration of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris after the recent fire tragedy. Don’t worry about the farmers, the homeless, the refugees, the starving in nations around the world. I know it’s a nice building and historical, but knock it down, build a nice new McDonalds restaurant and let’s do something useful with that money. Now about that fabricated email. “Dear Robbie, I’m having trouble

meeting a nice young man or lady. (I haven’t decided if this email is from a man or a woman yet). I’m reasonably attractive. I have a nice personality. What should I do? David from Dartmoor or Jess from just round the corner at Glencoe (Like I said, I haven’t worked out if it’s from a man or a woman, but it probably doesn’t really matter anyway. Although I thought we’d got you sorted a few years ago David. You’re married right? And you’ve met a nice boy Jess, right?) Annnnyway…this is an easy one David or Jess or someone else who this actually applies to. It’s lucky you’ve emailed old Uncle Robbie a.k.a. Doctor Love. It’s obvious. The way you meet a nice young man or lady is go on a reality television show. Easy, peasy lemon squeezy. As I understand it, no one meets a boyfriend/girlfriend/future wife/husband in real life anymore. You simply wait until it’s your turn to go on the Bachelor/Bachelorette/Stupid Morons in Paradise show and bing bang boom you meet the love of your life. If you’re still thinking you go to the pub and meet a potential life partner, you’re living in the 2000s. That’s not how it’s done anymore. You need a video camera in your face, producers putting you in ridiculous situations, and someone voting you off the island once a week. And to have flexible morals. If you’re thinking you get on the Tinder or the Grinder or whatever, then that’s wrong too. It’s not 2018 anymore people. I guess you’re still planking too. I met Donna back in the mid 2000s,

back when you could do it at the pub. We did have our first conversation at the pub when the combination of her being legally blind and me having consumed one alcoholic beverage created a perfect storm. Prior to us actually getting to know each other and go out for a date, I think our relationship blossomed when I visited the electrical shop she was working at and asked her how many bodies she thought I’d be able to hide in one of the chest freezers she was selling. When she nervously answered one or two, I asked, “What about if they were dismembered?” That won’t cut it in the year 2019 though. It wouldn’t make any sense on the reality television show. Another tactic I tried back in the day prior to meeting Donna was leaving a trail of snack foods from a supermarket to my house. It never worked. Even if it had, I may have caused someone to contract type two diabetes which wouldn’t have been a great way to start a relationship. I’m not saying I’m anti-diabetes, but I’m sure she’d blame me. There’s enough to dislike about my personality without adding things like that. I know traditionally there was a feeling that the way to a man’s heart was through his stomach. You know, make a delicious Alabama hotpot and the next thing you know he’s on one knee asking you to marry him. Again, this won’t work in 2019. You’re thinking of Masterchef and My Kitchen Rules. Different reality show. Ever seen anyone meet the love of their life on there? No.

I hope I’ve proved my point. I need to be honest again. I’m glad that I don’t have to go on a reality show. It really does look very stressful. I know they pay the contestants and there’s skanky hoes on tap but it seems like you have to put a lot of effort in. It looks very tiring. You have to make witty conversation. You need to be adventurous and exciting. You need abs. You need to be an obnoxious a-hole. In essence you have to be impressive. I just don’t have the energy for that. I needed to meet a woman with low expectations and thankfully back in the 2000’s there were still women who were easily pleased and knew that men were fundamentally disappointing by their very nature. There was less pressure to have redeeming features. Women weren’t looking for perfection. They were happy with pretty good. Or all right in my case. Anyway, David and Jess, apologies that I’ve brought you into this rambling mess which is probably offensive to women and the French…I hope no French women read this. f you’d like to send me a real email at robbietansel@ gmail.com, maybe I can solve your problem. It’d be fun to not have to make up my own emails.

MOTHER’S DAY FUNDRAISER RETURNS Mount Gambier is set to see another parade of people dressed in pink down at the Valley Lakes again this year as the Mother’s Day Classic fun run and walk returns for its seventh year in a row. Brought to Mount Gambier by Peter Collins and Simon Brook in 2013, the national event held on Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 12, is committed to raising funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. There will be a minute silence at 9.45am before the official walk commences at 10am. The family-friendly event is not competitive and is very inclusive with people of all ages able to participate, including the little ones in prams. Participants can choose to either walk or run anywhere between 2km to 8km along a mostly off-road scenic loop track through the Valley Lakes. Danae Fleetwood, who volunteered at the community event last year and is now on the committee, said that it was a good, supportive day for those that may have lost someone to breast cancer and for breast cancer survivors. “There are usually 200 to 300 people participating each year, with many of these signing up on the day,” Danae said. On the day registrations are open from 8.30am to 9.30am with online

registration also available. The event gets lots of support from the community, with Ecologie Organics attending to provide breakfast, Made by Jade Espresso bringing a coffee cart and the talented Ben Hood performing live music. There are also lots of generous local businesses donating free giveaways, including vouchers. After the event there will be an

• SUN 28th 10.15-10.45 36 Lake Tce West • SUN 28th 11.00-11.30 6 Colonel Light Plc

online auction held on the Mother’s Day Classic Mount Gambier Facebook page to fundraise more money. The online auction last year raised almost $2000. If people are not able to participate, Danae said there are still ways they can get involved with the Mother’s Day Classic. “People can hold their own fundraisers at school or work like morning teas, or they can volunteer on lifestyle1.net | 08

the day and just try and get the word out there.” Those who wish to volunteer will be helping to set up on the day of the event, taking registrations and cheering people on from the side of the track. People can also choose to ‘support in spirit,’ where they donate the same amount as they would pay to enter the event, with the money going straight to breast cancer research. With one in six women affected by breast cancer, Danae also said it’s important to get a check-up, just to be on the safe side. The Mother’s Day Classic will be held in all capital cities and major metropolitan and regional areas across Australia with more than 125,000 people participating. The money raised in past years has helped to fund 64 breast cancer research projects and ore than 250 Australian scientists. The notfor-profit organisation has had $35.3 million dollars donated since being established in 1998 and aims to raise $40 million by 2020.

GENERATIONS SCHOLARSHIP FINALISTS ANNOUNCED The 2019 Generations in Jazz (GIJ) scholarship finalists have been selected. Six instrumentalists will be vying for the prestigious James Morrison Jazz Scholarship at next month’s recordbreaking festival being held in Mount Gambier, South Australia, from May 3-5. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the scholarship, which awards a talented instrumentalist $10,000 generously donated by Melbourne’s Andrea Evans and the late Ron Evans AM to assist in career development. The Border Watch Newspapersponsored GIJ Vocal Scholarship also has six incredible contenders vying for a $10,000 prize. Australia’s national jazz service ABC Jazz will also offer this year’s Vocal Scholarship winner the opportunity to record at the ABC Jazz studios in either Sydney or Melbourne. GIJ artistic director James Morrison, said the annual scholarships were a highly anticipated feature of the GIJ program, attracting some of Australia’s most outstanding young jazz artists. “The wonderful thing about Generations In Jazz is that we often get to track the progress of wonderful young artists over a period of time,” he said. “That is certainly the case in 2019, as we have a number of finalists returning from last

year, and it is fantastic to hear how far they have come in the last 12 months. Of course there’s some new talent, too, and we can’t wait to hear them all at GIJ in just a few weeks.” Each scholarship finalist will perform at two public concerts during the Generations in Jazz Festival as part of the adjudication process. The first concert will be held at 8pm on Thursday, May 2, in the heart of Mount Gambier at the Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre, with tickets available from the Theatre Box Office or by booking online.

The second scholarship adjudication will be held on Friday, May 3, at the Barn Palais from 9pm, with James Morrison set to be joined on this year’s judging panel by Grammy award-winning vocalist Kurt Elling, acclaimed jazz, blues and gospel singer, Lizz Wright, master organist Joey DeFrancesco and saxophonist Rickey Woodard. The scholarship winners will be announced on Sunday, May 5, where they will take centre stage during the Finale Concert & Awards Ceremony from 11am, to close off the festival for another year. lifestyle1.net | 22

COMMUNITY PROJECT TAKES SHAPE More than 300 people converged on AF Sutton Memorial Park on O’Connor Drive this afternoon for a Community Fun Day for the surrounding neighbourhood. The initiative follows a series of City of Mount Gambier engagement activities to learn more about the community living in the area. The free community event provided entertainment and activities for the entire neighbourhood to enjoy. The event was a great success with hundreds of people participating in activities such as mural painting, a popup library, giant games, robotics, virtual reality, billy carts, a lego challenge, laser tag and a golf simulator, all while enjoying live music and a free barbecue. Aligned with objectives outlined in the Youth Engagement Strategy and Cultural and Heritage plan, engagement activities leading up to the event included door knocking to find out

what is important to the community, on-site discussions with park visitors and surveys. “Council is interested in learning more about this neighbourhood, particularly what’s great about the streets surrounding the park, the community in general and what could be done to potentially make it even better,” City of Mount Gambier Community Wellbeing General Manager Barbara Cernovskis said. “Locals were encouraged to share their opinions in an electronic survey on the Have Your Say Mount Gambier website. Postpaid postcards were also delivered to each individual household with a series of questions about the park and neighbourhood.” Council has recently made several improvements to the park following community feedback as part of the engagement process.

“Work has included the refurbishment of the toilet facilities and the installation of security lighting, picnic tables, drinking fountains and additional rubbish bins at the park,” Ms Cernovskis said. Local artists, youth and community members are working on a climate change themed mural at the skate park on site at AF Sutton Memorial Park following consultation with the local community. During the initial stages of community consultation in the local area, feedback from skate park users highlighted the gradual increase in graffiti appearing in and around the skate park. “Users of the space expressed their disappointment in the presentation of the skate park, noting that it reflected poorly on the image of skateboarding in Mount Gambier,” Ms Cernovskis said.“They believed that a new artwork, much like the watermelon bowl at Dimjalla Park, would rekindle a sense of pride and community ownership over

the space.” In March this year, council called for expressions of interest from local artists to develop a mural at the site in consultation with skaters and other park users. Local artists April Hague and Charlene Riley were engaged to work with council and youth to come up with a concept plan. “More than 30 local residents including skaters, BMX and scooter riders of all ages took part in a workshop with Council and the artists on site on Saturday 30 March 2019 to help guide the development of a plan for the mural,” artist April Hague said. “We both really enjoyed the consultation day, it was great to meet the regular users of the space and have a chat about what they would like to see there and just get a feel for the culture there.” The vibrant design will feature food items melting into the skate bowl, the earth and a representation of rising sea levels and climate change, appealing to

a wide demographic. “The kids were really excited about Council’s plans and had really interesting ideas to contribute on the day,” Ms Hague said. Work on the mural got underway last week.

JAM PACKED FESTIVAL PROGRAM

FROM PAGE 4

The 2019 Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival program has been launched and, as usual, it has time honoured favourites, combined with new ideas and venues. The 2019 festival is looking to focus more events within walking distance of the newly redeveloped Penola Town Square. The Kid’s Program is also relocating from Penola Memorial Park to Mary MacKillop Memorial School’s Oval, right next to Petticoat Lane – the historical heart of Penola and everything will be on site this year, including walk up events, workshops, food and drink and even the Sunday show. Entries are still open for the festival competitions with the John Shaw Neilson Acquisitive Art Prize and Design Prize entries due Friday, May 10, by 4pm. The festival also has a new website which makes searching for the exhibition, event or workshop so much easier, and it will even let you know which events have food, wine and music. The 25th anniversary of CoOpera being part of the festival, with its performance of Don Giovanni, remains the centrepiece of the 2019 program, while the always popular Shenanigans, now heading into its eighth year, also boasting some great acts, including country singer Jordanna Jones, Not the Wolf, Portland’s Since Tuesday, Ballarat rock band Honey Hunter, Mick Coates & THE ALLNIGHTLONGERS and Adelaide’s rock’n’roll act, The Villenettes. There will be the usual street art and a raft of cellar door activities so check out the program and plan your weekend. The festival runs from May 16-19.

Her greatest gift, with the exception of her strong work ethic, was her organisational skills and that’s what saw her so often placed in charge of events. It even saw her go from being a three week temp to working for Ferrers Medical Clinic for 17 years. “They wanted her to go in and just tidy up the accounts and she ended up staying,” Roy said. His career saw him at the Yahl meatworks for 29 years and then in security at Softwoods for seven before retirement. Given that his time in the army was what saw him meet the love of his life, it will always be a special part of his life. He trained at Puckapunyal before heading to Korea for a year, as a 21 year old, and then his four years at Woodside. “We joined the army for adventure really but being in Korea was no adventure,” Roy said. He is still in contact with one mate with whom he served in Korea, who signed up on the same day, albeit in Western Australia, and every Christmas Roy and Stan Starcevich chat on the phone. And while that is a special mateship, meeting Shirley, the girl from the Royal Army Corps (RAC), at Woodside, who took a while to succumb to his charms, made it all worthwhile.

FUNDING FOR EMBATTLED ANIMAL WELFARE LEAGUE The South East Animal Welfare League (SEAWL) has received a $60,000 boost from the Mount Gambier City Council in its ongoing battle to keep its head above water financially. With the current financial deal with the league, the city council and Grant District Council set to wind up at the end of June, the SEAWL was keen to lock in some certainty after a previous request for $350,000 towards a $1.7mliion dollar upgrade was unable to be granted, as well as an increase in operational funding to $100,000 per year. The $60,000 is subject to conditions, which will be negotiated in the coming weeks between both the SEAWL and council. The volunteer opportunities and re-homing of animals, while not at the heart of core council business, did provide wider community benefits, which council took into account when agreeing on the funding deal. lifestyle1.net | 24

FEDERAL WINDFALL FOR NETBALL COURTS UPGRADE The vision to transform Alexandra Park into an elite netball facility has been realised following a Federal funding commitment to redevelop the ageing netball courts. Member for Wannon Dan Tehan MP last night confirmed $485,000 would be allocated to redevelop Alexandra Park’s netball courts through the Community Development Grant Program. The funding will see the installation of new lights and construction of two new netball courts, replacing the existing non-compliant facilities. Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank described the announcement as ‘fantastic news’, with the redevelopment the first step in the implementation of the Alexandra Park Master Plan which was endorsed by council earlier this year. “Council is focused on supporting and encouraging women in sport and the netball courts at Alexandra Park were amongst the highest priorities for redevelopment in our shire, with compliance issues such as poor court run-off and inappropriate surfaces causing potential harm for the many junior and senior netball players who regularly use the facilities,” she said. “The redevelopment will greatly improve playing conditions for both Westerns Football Netball Club and the South West District Football Netball League competition; ensuring netballers have safe and compliant courts to play on to perform at their best. Furthermore, the redevelopment will see the popular sporting venue showcased across the region. The installation of new compliant netball courts and lights will provide Westerns with the opportunity to host night games and final matches at Alexandra Park. I look forward to the commencement of this exciting project which will see the first stage of the process to transform Alexandra Park into a world class sporting precinct achieved.” Council will provide in-kind support and manage the Alexandra Park netball court facility redevelopment.

• Asbestos • business or industrial waste Items that WILL BE accepted free of charge on this day are: • Furniture – tables, chairs, wardrobes, beds and mattresses • Floor coverings (up to 2 metre lengths) • Timber off cuts, including pallets (up to 2 metre lengths) • Dismantled clothes lines • Blinds and window coverings • Bikes and toys • Lawn mowers • Poly rainwater tanks • TVs and e-waste (as it is unloaded first place on top of your load) • Household quantities of bricks, rocks, dirt, pavers, concrete and building materials •Dry paint

MEDICAL SUITES OFFICIALLY UNVEILED A centre of excellence in medicine that brings medical specialists to Mount Gambier.That is the vision of managing director Bruce Keeley in the creation of the Mount Gambier Medical Consulting Suites. It is a revolution in medical services in Mount Gambier and it has become somewhat of a field of dreams project – if they build it they will come – and Bruce is already fielding plenty of enquiries from specialists not already on board, based locally and away, that want to tap into the chance to consult out of the state-of-the-art facility. The suites were officially opened earlier this month. WPRS (Warrnambool Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery) is one of the tenants of the new consulting suites, with two plastic surgeons once a week and a dermatologist four days every four weeks, as well as a rejuvenation specialist. And there are more announcements imminent as surgeons and specialists look to be part of this medical mecca, including a new surgeon moving to the region in the middle of the year. Two orthopaedic specilaists and a urologist are already part of the Mount Gambier Medical Consulting Suites, with a once a month visit.

FACELIFT FOR TARPEENA SKATE PARK The Tarpeena Skate Park has enjoyed a colourful facelift courtesy of Limestone Coast Jeremy Ievins. Armed with a brief from some of the young people of the Tarpeena community, who also helped create the finished work, Jeremy designed a 3-D style Simpsons themed pinball machine and the result is stunning. Coinciding with 2019 Youth Week celebrations, the unveiling of the new look skate park was one of the highlights of the Youth Week program. The project was instigated by a couple of young Tarpeena skate park users, who approached the District Council of Grant to revamp and update their well-used skate park. The skate park overhaul was funded through the Office of Youth as part of Council’s SA Youth Week grant funding and the District Council of Grant. Greg Saunders Painter and Decorator supplied the paint and supplies, while Jeremy donated much of his time and labour to the project. The Tarpeena Progress Association has raised funds to help finish and protect the project including the addition of an antigraffiti coating.

“I am very happy with how the club is tracking. It has been incredible.” High praise from a man not prone to hyperbole but Pioneers head men’s coach Richard Hill is nothing, if no buoyant, about how the club has defied the odds and started to build as a genuine contender, in both the men’s and women’s Premier League competition. The Pioneers season is only six games old but both teams sit fifth, in a competition that plays a top five for its major round, and both have at least one game, and in many cases, two games, in hand of their higher ranked rivals. The club is coming off another superb weekend where both teams took to the Icehouse pine and won and both victories were crucial – they saw the reversal of round one losses, as well as ensuring the Pioneers hold the head to head advantage with North Adelaide, should ladder positions come down to that. With the playing rosters now set and having played together for a couple of rounds, it is all about improvement and fine tuning now with both coaches – Hill and women’s chief Matt Sutton – building towards the next challenge. In terms of the men’s team, Hill has already seen marked improvement. “We have improved really quickly,” he said. “Everyone is getting better and the imports are improving and I like where we are heading, it’s exciting.” US import Kentrell Barkley was fresh off the plane when he played the opening couple of rounds on the road but Hill is now seeing what he expected to see from the young American. “Kentrell is just a really good player,” Hill said. Barkley is leading the league in total rebounds, defensive rebounds and average rebounds per league and his offensive game has hit another level in the past couple of outings. Fellow import Dayjar Dickson, who did not arrive in the shape the club would have hoped, has worked overtime to get fit and his game has seen a significant rise as a result. “I am doing a lot of one on one sessions with Dayjar and he has already improved so much,” Hill said. “He has actually already improved beyond my expectations to be honest.” Tom Daly continues to be a shining light for the Pioneers and with a change of role for season 2019, the skipper looks reinvigorated. With Brad Rathjen taking on the point guard duties, Tom Daly has been freed up to take on more scoring and with an average of 24 points over the first six matches, the multi-championship winning player is relishing his new role. He still sits in the top five for total assists and average assists and with a couple of 40 point hauls already, he continues to be a dangerous player for opposition teams to combat. Rathjen’s return to the basketball court from the football field has been a triumph and he is working overtime as his passion for basketball returns in spades. “He is just working so hard and given he has a tough job during the day and then is doing all the extra work needed outside

For the third successive year, former Mount Gambier netballers Nyah Allen and Molly Watson have been part of the national championship winning team, with another former local Jordyn Adams celebrating her second successive national title. All three girls were part of South Australia’s 19 & Under national championship winning team, convincingly defeating New South Wales 49-20 in a lopsided contest that saw the SA girls completely outplay their more fancied opponents. Nyah could have actually been part of South Australia’s 17 & Under championship winning team, the first time SA has claimed the double in 16 years, but the Thunderbirds training partner was looking to extend herself so opted to trial for the higher age group. Once again, Nyah’s

nationals were characterised by accurate finishing and composed play, and the grand final was no exception where she netted 19 from 20 in the title decider, as well as taking some crucial rebounds. Molly spent the majority of the tournament in the goal keeper position and her best outing was against Queensland, who boasted a 6’5 goal shooter, while Jordyn played mainly wing defence, as well as having a run through the centre. All three South East girls were on court in the second half of the team’s crucial round robin win over Victoria. As a result of their performances at the national championships, Nyah (pictured above in action in the grand final) and Molly have been named in the 19 & Under national squad, with a training camp set down for July 6-10.

of that, we just couldn’t be happier,” Hill said. “We are all about pushing him to the next level and I really believe that’s possible. He is just doing all the little things that make all the other guys better.” There is only upside for Sam Daly as well, given he is coming off a season with the Kings, where court time was sparing and so despite his undeniable talent, match fitness was always going to take a little bit of time to develop. “We were so lucky to get a player like Sam and he is another one that will only keep getting better,” Hill said. “I’ve got high hopes for him – he can be a high level player.” Having hit 100 points in all but one game thus far, scoring, and importantly an even spread of scorers, has not been an issue, but Hill did see better sings at the defensive end of the court in the home court win last round. “Defence takes more work and understanding funnily enough,” Hill said. “You need to get that trust and understanding and that will take some time.” The women’s efforts have arguably been even more impressive, given the club has not had a women’s program in many years. “We certainly have two quality imports in Amanda (Frost) and Pachis (Roberts) and Emily Winter has shown is definitely a player at this level,” Hill said. Frost is in the league’s best sitting second in average points (23.3), second in average assists (4.67). top of the free thrown percentage shooting, second in total points and third in total assists. The experience of Melissa Russell has also been crucial. “I think she’s a better player now than when she was playing at that level before,” Hill said. Russell is fourth in the league for steals, as well as free throw percentage but it is the intangible – her on court leadership and ability to marshal the troops that has arguably been of most benefit. cont. page 35 Above - Brad Rathjen’s return to the basketball court has been a godsend for the Pioneers.

AMY CLAIMS SUMMER SERIES VICTORY A fifth placing in the final race of the Munt Gambier Cycling Club Summer Series was enough to secure Amy Wight the series title. The nine race series tarting in February and Amy’s consistency over the series saw her a clear winner. The final race was held with near perfect conditions that allowed a fast and furious finish with 15 cyclists hitting the pedals for final aggregate points. The scratch group put in a strong performance, catching the limit and second limit riders with around five kilometres to go. A sprint finish saw the consistently strong series rider, Scott Waters, secure the win with Nick Kidman, second, and Gerard Coote, third. Junior rider Josh Waters stayed with the group for a welldeserved fourth and then the first feamel and eventual series winner Amy Wight. Sean Angus finshed second on the series standings, with a pleasing return to club racing, that saw him finish in the top three in the majority of his seven races. Scott Waters was third, racing across eight of the races. The Soldiers Memorial is the club’s next major race, held on Anzac Day, as part of the South West series. The race is offering $1000 in prize money and vouchers for juniors. Registration ares from 11.30am at the clubrooms, with junior racing starting at 12.15pm and seniors at 1pm.

HEART BREAKER Spare a thought for Lelisa Desisa of Ethiopia who was running to win his third straight Boston Marathon title but came up short, beaten by Kenyan Lawrence Cherono by one second. It would be a tough pill to swallow after running 42 kilometres over two hour plus to be beaten by such a narrow margin.

Above (from left) - The final race of the Summer Series podium - Scott Waters (1st); Nick Kidman (2nd) & Gerard Coote (3rd). LATEST MEGA DEAL The latest NFL news surrounds Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson who had placed a deadline on his team for a new contract to be in place by April 15. Seattle has come through with a four year contract worth $140 million with a record $65 million signing bonus as well as a ‘no-trade’ clause. Those terms also make Wilson, 30, the highest paid player in the NFL.

SHOW OF FAITH Carlton has pounced early and secured rookie sensation Sam Walsh on a new deal which will see him at the club until the end of the 2022 season. A tremendous show of faith after only four AFL games. That being said Walsh has proven to be the complete AFL package , accomplished on the field and intelligent and articulate off the field since he was selected as the number one pick in the draft…..which begs the question…. Why would he sign a contract extension at Carlton?

PUTTING IT ALL ON THE LINE

It’s all about getting on base in baseball and in this year’s Under 13 Gold baseball grand final, South Indians player Dylan Lewis wasn’t going to let anything stop him from being called safe. It was that kind of determination that saw Dylan and his team secure the 2018/19 Mount Gambier & District Baseball League Under 13 Gold title. PHOTOS COURTESY OF ANGELA LAMOND

PIONEERS SHAPING AS CONTENDERS

NATIONAL SUCCESS FOR LOCAL ATHLETES

Hannah Elliott has returned from the Australian Athletics Championships with a sixth placing in the 2km steeplechase. It was not the result she was hoping for, clocking a time four seconds outside her personal best but a fall at the first water jump added to the challenge and in the end, the time and where she finished among the nation’s best athletes showed her, she is well and truly on the right track. Hannah (above left) is a member of the Limestone Coast Regional Sporting Academy. Jamie McInerney was attending her 10th national athletic championships and she had a raft of impressive results. It was a milestone to savour with Jamie making her first ever finals in both the discus and javelin. Her previous best had been a ninth placing. Jamie (abover right) also competed in the 100m and shot put – she is an athlete that competes in the mixed disabilities events, vision impaired athletes, amputees and other disability classes. She finished seventh in the discus and 5th in the javelin. Lifestyle1 will follow up more Limestone Coast athletes in next week’s magazine.

FROM PAGE 33 To then have Maddy and Olivia Wormald getting the job done at both ends of the court and the local talent and the women, who are undefeated at home, now have genuine reason to believe they can go deep this season. And Hill is full of praise for Sutton and the way he has taken to coaching this newly formed team. “He is really suited to coaching the girls,” Hill said. “He is an all round good guy, has a way with people and has good experience with Forestville, the 36ers and then all the success he had with the Pioneers. He understands what it takes to win and he has definitely learnt a lot along the way. He has committed a lot of time to this team and he’s passionate about it. I love what he’s doing.” And while Pioneers fans would still like Kane De Wit to be calling the Icehouse home, his move to Forestville has seen him blossom. He leads the league in average assists (8.86) and total assists (62). Speaking of the crowd, Hill has been overwhelmed by the support from home fans and it has shown no signs of waning. “We’ve had 900 minimum to every game,” Hill said. “The support people have shown the Pioneers means they deserve us playing in a high level competition.” The Pioneers hit the road after the Easter break.

Both football teams are coming off impressive wins and will be looking to get the job done on the big stage. North easily accounted for the reigning premiers, while the young Demons held on in a nailbiter against the Cats. In the netball, North Gambier struggled against Millicent, while South Gambier started the season with a win over Casterton Sandford, setting up what could be one of the closer ANZAC Day netball matches in recent history, given the Tigers have dominated for some time.

LOCAL SPORT BORDERLINE BIDS 2018/19 SEASON FAREWELL In front of one of the best crowds of the season, the Borderline Speedway farewelled the 2-18/19 season with a strong night of racing at the Glenburnie track on Easter Saturday. The Easter Sprintcar Trail was the feature event of the night – the Borderline hosting round two of the three round event, that starts at Avalon on Good Friday and finished at Premiers Speedway, in Warrnambool, on Sunday. Having taken out night one, Jamie Veal was again atop the podium at the Borderline Speedway, beating out David Murcott and John Vogels. No locals competed in the sprintcar event, with Glen Sutherland still battling injury and Steve Lines committed to a Queensland event, although in the end, family illness saw him stay home. The South Australian Sportsmans Championship gave the large local crowd a chance to get involved, though, with brothers Kahn and

Joshua Aston well in contention. The title was eventually taken by Horsham’s Mark McDonald, with Kahn Aston finishing second, another Horsham driver, Nathan Baker, in third, with Joshua Aston, only just missing a podium finish in fourth. There was also a Super Rods event with Neville Grange finishing first, Shaun Walsh, in second, and Ewan McKenzie, third. The on track action is now mothballed until November, but for Borderline Speedway organisers there is still plenty on the go. On May 5, club officials will be meeting with the Victorian tracks in Geelong, as they continue to foster the relationship that is so critical to the Borderline’s ongoing viability. “We rely on their drivers and their support to keep us going just because we are so close to the border,” president Cary Jennings said. In June, a bigger picture summit will take place in Adelaide when meetings with

members of the Speedway Promoters Association of Australia meet. “It’s a chance to see what other speedways are doing and get ideas and see where we can improve,” Jennings said. In terms of season highlights, the ability of uncontracted local hope Steve Lines (right) to win his second World Series Sprintcar title, along with Anthony Beare (above) continuing to make his name on the national stage, taking out another street stock national title.

GOALFEST FOR TIGERS

Tigers and Strikers met for the first time in Division One Men’s action in warm conditions in round three action. Tigers were looking to bounce back after their shock loss to CavsPort while Strikers were keen to replicate the good form they showed in their round one draw with CavsPort. Strikers were on the back foot from the get go though as Tigers earned their first penalty corner in less than a minute. Strikers defended the corner well but couldn’t clear the resulting free hit and Brady Cooper found himself open with the ball on his stick inside the attacking circle. He made no mistake and had secured the lead for Tigers with a quality finish. Strikers responded with opportunities while on the counter attack but the final critical possession in front of goal was hard to come by. Jordan Millhouse and Dean McCarthy were soon frustrating Tigers but Greg Doll continually responded to maintain the upper hand for Tigers. Coopers early goal was all that separated the two teams at quarter time. Strikers doubled their efforts in the second quarter and were defending doggedly, denying Tigers entry to the attacking

circle. Defence was not so easily turned into attack though with very few attacking opportunities presenting themselves. Always exciting, it was Aaron Mengler who showed them how to do it as an outstanding individual run saw him extend the Tigers lead. While not a solo effort, McCarthy was all over the field, giving his teammates everything he had in his effort to pull Strikers back into the game. His efforts were rewarded with a penalty corner that he himself stepped up to take, sending it just wide of the goal. As the half wore down, great awareness of the few seconds remaining by Tigers veteran Greg Doll presented Tigers with another opportunity to stamp their authority on the game but his forwards could not match his awareness and failed to latch on to his forward pass. Strikers were lucky to be only two goals down at the main break. Early in the second half McCarthy was again a factor with a run into the attacking circle but he couldn’t find the teammate support that he needed. He wasn’t the only Striker to suffer this fate as a few opportunities slipped through their fingers. Tigers forward play started to breakdown in the face of Strikers increased enthusiasm and they started to rely on the long pass, which was not paying dividends. If Tigers were to extend their lead it was the midfield that needed to step up and step up they did. Their pressure was starting to cause turnovers and earned them a penalty corner. Goalkeeper Andrew Thomas made a great first save but Brady Cooper cleaned up the scraps and put the ball away for a 3-0 lead. The turnovers continued and Tigers were soon on the attack again with Doll and Mengler combining. Mengler putting it away to secure what was certainly an almost insurmountable lead. There was no doubt about that when Jarryd Burston scored the goal of the game with a powerful backstick strike from the top of the circle. With Tigers’ dominance and Strikers’ frustration the game starting to get scrappy as Strikers became frustrated with both the score line and the relentless Tigers attack which was now running on all cylinders. Strikers were missing the all round play of Jordan Millhouse, who after dominating early, had a reduced impact for the second half. Tigers put another nail in the coffin after the three quarter time whistle with a slight mishit by Lochie Nisbet on a penalty corner but the bobbled ball is always hard the defend and it found its way into the corner of the goal for the 6-0 lead. The game settled down significantly in the final quarter as both teams knew the result was already decided. Tigers were still dominating possession but were unable to find the final possession in front of goal. With time expiring fast McCarthy was rewarded with a consolation goal to add some respectability to the scoreboard. Mengler soon responded with his third goal to put the final stamp on a dominating Tigers victory. Best Players: Dylan Montgomery (Tigers), Dean McCarthy (Strikers), Aaron Mengler (Tigers). lifestyle1.net | 37
