COVER - WDEA WORKS MOUNT GAMBIER UNVEILS ITS NEW TEAM & NEW HOME Unlocking potential. Building ability. That is the catchphrase of WDEA Works, and in Mount Gambier, a new team, in new premises, is eager to help both jobseekers and employers tap into all the services they provide. From site manager Tammie Hawke, to team leader Jenny Brown, from employment consultants Melissa Norman and Kim Pratt to administration officer Melissa Woods, the Mount Gambier team brings a wealth of experience to getting the job done in the disability sector, having built strong relationships with disability service providers throughout the region. “We work collaboratively with the disability sector to get the best outcomes for job seekers as well as the employer,” Jenny said. It is why WDEA Works has a strong commitment to post-placement support, working side by side with the job seeker and employer long after that first day of work. “We constantly follow up with the employer and the employee and that is paramount to job seeker success,” Jenny said. WDEA Works also prides itself on working closely with each client and building their abilities and confidence. “We work at their pace,” Tammie said. “That is a real point of difference for us and we see that get the best outcomes for our job seekers. The feedback from our clients is just how much we care and that we don’t just

EDUCATOR TURNED CAFE OWNER MAKES HISTORY It might seem like a lifetime ago but in a former life Toni Vorenas was a highly regarded high school teacher. She spent 25 years developing young minds and helping young people find their best selves. So much has changed and yet so much has stayed the same. Last Friday night, Toni Vorenas, the mastermind behind the business success story that is Metro Bakery & Café, became the first dual winner of the Businesswoman of the Year at the Women in Business and Regional Development Influential Women in Business Awards. An English teacher making history. Toni won the same honour in 2013, giving her two top gongs from the five award ceremonies since their inception in 2010.

But this time, with so much more experience in the hospitality industry, the award is less vindication of her career change, and more about opportunity – an opportunity to again mentor young people, from her staff, to anyone starting out in business that could do with the wisdom of someone who has already trod that path. “The award also offers me a platform from which to be a role model for women and their voice,” Toni said. “I try and make a difference by giving opportunities to young staff who don’t know where they fit, by supporting young business people and by championing regional business.” For Toni, in a way, it is back where it all began, but instead of a classroom, she is making a difference in young people’s lives in a kitchen, behind a coffee machine and out on the floor. “I spend quality time with my staff and while I have high expectations, I pride myself on being fair,” Toni said. “I look to include them in major decisions and show them that they matter.” It was in 2010 that Toni went from Shakespeare, Dylan Thomas and Tim Winton being the centre of her universe, to sour dough bread, delectable pastries and traditional Italian cuisine. In a way, it was what she was born to do, coming form an Italian family and marrying into the Greek tradition. “In both the Greek and Italian culture, food is a celebration, it’s the centre of everything,” Toni said. “But as a career change it was completely

unplanned.” Yet you could argue she had been in training for hospitality her entire life. She grew up in Monash Crescent in Mount Gambier where there was about four Italian families all living in a small community with a strong Italian tradition. “One family would make the wine and we’d all go there and do that and then every July one family would kill a pig and make all the sausages and prosciutto, and our family used to make the tomato salsa, there was a lot of tradition,” she said. The Italian Club was also a huge part of their lives. “It wasn’t just about the soccer, it was a place to connect with the whole of your Italian community,” she said. And now, in the blink of an eye, as basically a decade has passed and wine, prosciutto and tomato salsa are again front and centre of her world. Yet when you hear Toni talk about being a businesswoman, it doesn’t sound that dissimilar to her life as an educator. “For the most part being a businesswoman means investing time in building relationships, strengthening the business brand and continuing to learn about things that will give my business an edge,” she said. “It means believing in myself and trusting my instincts. It means an acknowledgement to the women who came before me and paved the way and means providing opportunities for other women. After a

lifestyle1.net | 04

decade in business, my focus is shifting. A successful businesswoman to me is someone who makes time for her family and herself, whilst at the same time creating value at work.”

You could argue she has bitten off even more as the head honcho of her own café – in the classroom she had 20 or 30 students, at Metro Bakery & Café and Slice of Metro, Toni is looking after 54 employees. Business can be as complicated or as simple as you want to make it but at the heart of Toni’s business philosophy is happiness. “We aim for happy staff and happy customers,” she said. And retention is the best way she can measure both of those happiness barometers and it is safe to say, with a number of other industry awards under their belt and Mount Gambier Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Business Awards, the team at Metro seem to be getting that right. Arguably her other pearl of wisdom is the toughest piece of advice for many of us to take – it is OK to fail. She knows she has done it time and time again herself and she encourages risk taking in her staff – just as it was 35 years ago when she stood in front of her first class, it is all about learning. Other award winners on the night were Koonara Wines’ Nicole Reschke, photogrpaher Jacqui Bateman and book shop guru Cindy Patzel. Lifestyle1 will tell their stories on coming editions.



NEW SCHOLARSHIPS ON OFFER FOR STUDENTS Stand Like Stone opened its annual Grants and Scholarship Programs last week with two new perpetual scholarships valued at $10,000

each announced for students with a connection to the Wattle Range Council area. A private donation has enabled the creation of the Rackhams

Educational Scholarships. The Rackhams educational scholarships are provided for reasons of equity or merit to benefit secondary or tertiary students with a connection to the Wattle Range Council Area. Two scholarships valued at $10,000 each will be provided annually, with the inaugural scholarships being offered this year for study to be undertaken in 2020. “It is very exciting to announce these new perpetual scholarships,” Stand LIke Stone Foundation chair Bill DeGaris said. “The Rackhams Scholarships are the largest scholarships that Stand Like Stone has on offer and a scholarship of this monetary value has the ability to make a real and meaningful difference in a person’s education. It is humbling to be able to offer scholarships of this value within our region and we are grateful to the donor who has made this possible. We thank them for their generosity and their vision to assist local people to achieve their educational dreams.”

The Rackhams perpetual scholarships accompany the Lorry Humphreys’ Arts Scholarship and the Lorry Humphreys’ Trades Scholarship that were announced in December last year. These perpetual scholarships are valued at $5000 each and will be awarded to students undertaking study in the Arts or the Trades in 2020. In conjunction with the perpetual scholarships, Stand Like Stone will again offer numerous annual scholarships valued at a total of around $40,000 as part if its annual scholarship program. Stand Like Stone scholarships can be used for approved curriculum and courses at Australian educational institutions (such as pre-schools, primary schools, secondary schools, higher education institutions and registered training organisations), as well as related living and boarding costs. More than $167,000 has been delivered to Limestone Coast students since the scholarship program began 10 years ago.

The Spring Small Grants program for the Limestone Coast community also opened last week. Organisations are invited to apply for grants of up to $5000 for charitable projects to benefit the Limestone Coast community. Since it began, the small grants program has delivered more than $415,000 in funding to 236 local projects. The small grant program enables local groups access to grant funding on a regular basis to support the needs of local communities. “The grant applications that we receive from around the region are very diverse,” Mr DeGaris said. “It is good to be able to respond to the needs of the local community across the region and ensure that local projects that are valued by their community are receiving support. That is the beauty of Stand Like Stone in that we are able to respond to the needs of the region and in turn grow local communities by funding the projects that are important to them.”

BOOST FOR LIVE MUSIC SCENE

The City of Mount Gambier will begin recruitment for a Regional Live Music Coordinator following a funding announcement of $25,000 from Minister for Innovation and Skills Hon David Pisoni MP. The State Government grant was awarded as part of the Regional Accelerator Music Program (RAMP) which encompasses a series of activities designed to support regional musicians and live music opportunities across South Australia. The once-off funding opportunity from the Department for Trade, Tourism and Investment will assist in the part time engagement of a designated Live Music Coordinator. The role will involve coordination of a range of opportunities for the growth and stimulation of the industry. Mount Gambier Mayor Lynette Martin OAM welcomed the news saying she expected the new position would increase the number of live music events on offer locally and boost the presence of performing musicians in the area. “The inaugural RAMP roundtable highlighted that Mount Gambier has all the ingredients to become one of the best regional centres for live music in Australia but is currently hindered by a lack of communication, collaboration and the sharing of skills, knowledge

and resources within the industry,” Mayor Martin said. “The City already hosts major annual events such as Generations in Jazz, Red Hot Summer Tour and the Mount Gambier Fringe Festival, in addition to a number of annual arts and cultural festivals and bands and individuals who regularly perform in the region.” Council’s Strategic Plan ‘The Futures Paper 2016-2020’ identifies a number of objectives that initiate activity to deliver outcomes that benefit arts, culture and heritage in the city. These objectives are further supported by several recommendations presented in Council’s Culture and Heritage Plan, Public Art Strategy and Youth Engagement Strategy. Recruitment for the part time Regional Live Music Coordinator is expected to begin later this month. The success of events in Mount Gambier demonstrates the growing capacity of the region to embrace the arts, but also highlights the requirement of leadership and coordinated collaboration in this space for the industry to grow,” Mayor Martin said. RAMP is one of several State Government programs supporting live music and the growth of creative industries in South Australia.

“From an early age my mother knew that I was never going to eat vegetables and salad. Hence the weight growth. I was always a big boy, from the age of 4 and onwards I really started to pack the weight on. All through junior school I was quite a solid lad. I used to get teased quite a bit. Through high school it was no different, I was increasingly growing. Largely through the lack of exercise and eating the wrong foods and nothing seemed to change I kept going on my merry way and I just kept growing.” Born in Mount Gambier and growing up in Millicent until I was 16, I started working when I was 17, which is when I discovered alcohol. Alcohol and bad food led to the waist line increasing even more. Then when I was 21, I finished my apprenticeship and I was not going anywhere or doing anything so I decided to go for a little trip around Australia. I ended up in Queensland, which is where I stayed for 14 years. Again my lifestyle didn’t change, I was drinking more, I was still eating the wrong foods, not exercising. Then I joined a gym in Queensland because I felt it was time, I was getting that fat. I was training but the lifestyle got in the way again. I kept drinking and eating the wrong food, neglecting myself. Then in 2009, I started to get sick. I was in and out of the doctors and hospital and they couldn’t confirm what was actually wrong with me. I had copious amounts of tests done and they couldn’t find out if I had anything wrong with me. just knew that something wasn’t right. I started to dwell on my ill health and it started to depress me, so I moved back home in January 2010. Then I settled into a lifestyle here. I joined a golf club and made new mates and again I started drinking and the bad lifestyle continued until May 2012. That is when I got diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. That came about because I was playing in the pennant competition at Mount Gambier Golf Club and I was struggling to breathe walking up the fairway. I was taken to hospital, where they did testing and did an X-ray of my chest and they found a couple of big lumps, which turned out to be the Hodgkins Lymphoma. They started my treatment and I spent most of my time in Flinders Medical Centre. I had four failed courses of chemotherapy, each ranging from three to five months, until the doctors were pretty much out of options. They then decided to apply for a drug out of Germany, which wasn’t part of the PBS list in Australia at the time, but fortunately the government granted approval for the Flinders doctors to administer the three injections I had to have, at a cost of $50,000.

They injected that into me in early 2014 and I went from a 10 to a 2, which in the doctors’ eyes was unheard of so at this point they decided it was time to give me a stem cell transplant. So in March 2014 I went to Flinders and they gave me a lethal dose of chemo and basically nearly killed me. On the day when I was supposed to have my stem cell harvest they were struggling to find a vein to put it in, at which point time was really starting to run out and things weren’t looking great for me. They eventually got a vein, and got the stem cells into me but then they didn’t take. So things started to look very bleak. Doctors had indicated to me that I may need to settle my affairs rapidly as I may not be on the planet much longer. Then luckily, as the days progressed my blood count slowly started to improve, I slowly started to improve. Then after 28 days, the doctors said that my bloods were at a stable level where I could go home. This is where the battle began. I could barely walk from the bed to the door, because my body had just depleted that badly. I had to basically learn to do basic functions all over again. Basically had to learn to walk again before I could consider exercise. It just started out as a daily thing where I would get up and walk to the end of the street and walk back and I’d be exhausted. This went on for a couple of months. Then I realised that I needed to progress, and that’s when I came back to the gym. I started with five minutes a day because it was all I could handle on the treadmill, slowly building it up to 10, 15, 20, 30 minutes over a three month period to where I was physically able to exercise. At my biggest I was a 160kg and after my transplant I went from 160kg to 132kg in just 28 days. It was basically all fluid and then I held steady at that over the course of the next four to five months. I then returned back to work on a part time basis. Again because life has slowly tuned back to normal, I thought I was invincible. So again I started drinking, eating the wrong foods, exercise was taking a back step again. I continued down this

unhealthy path thinking I was invincible because I’d beaten cancer, I had beaten everything everyone said I couldn’t do. Then I noticed the waist line started to grow again and in December 2017, I was back to 147kg. I hadn’t been feeling great in the past couple of months, I knew I had to do something but didn’t know what to do, didn’t know how to start, with the fear of failure starting to set into my mind. What if I have a go and I don’t succeed, what would people think of me. I found myself in a bit of a rut where I just didn’t know what to do. My fiancee said to me, that on January 1 she was going on a healthy eating challenge and only cooking meals from the Healthy Mummy Challenge. The choice was simple - either eat those meals or cook for myself. Being a typical bloke that was not an option. So I started the journey - I started on a healthy eating challenge. But my fiancee also said to me in December, you cannot go one week without drinking to which I responded I can go a whole month without drinking! So the bet was on! We shook on it and by the end of January I had no alcohol and won the bet! She asked me what I’m going to do. I said well that was easy, I’m going to keep doing it. This was also the start of my journey, because I decided that if I’m going to go on this healthy eating challenge and watch what I eat then I may as well put some exercise into it as well and have a red hot go. So I started doing 45 minutes on the treadmill seven days a week. What I noticed the first week of January between the change of my diet and the cardio in the morning, I lost 3kg. I thought, wow that was easy! So the next week I lost another 2kg. I was like this is just too easy. And then weight loss continued as follows losing 10kg in the first month 147.1 – 144.3 – 141.3 – 138.7 - 134.8 – 133.1 -130.9 -129 – 127.7 – 126.3 – 126.1 – 124.3 – 123.3 – 121.8 – 120.1 – 119.6kg. I thought this was pretty good for someone who didn’t think they could do it. I kept on this course of training for eight and a half months before I stopped recording. Everything was going swimmingly, weight loss was continual and after about eight weeks I bumped up my training to an hour.


So I then decided that by my birthday which was five weeks away at the time, I want to lose another 10kg. So I did, by my birthday I hit the 20kg mark. I thought after nine weeks, losing 20kg was pretty good going! I then decided on my birthday on the 4th of March, that I want to have a real crack! I’m going to lose 50kg for the year and I’m going to train 365 days straight!

I’d like to give a big thankyou to all the Jetts Mt Gambier staff for always being supportive and encouraging. I’m surprised at the amazing people (members) I have met coming here at Jetts gym and I have made some lifelong friends now, ones I train with every day. I got to the start of this year, January 2019, Marissa asked me what my goals were. I didn’t really have any goals, so I was just going to continue on and see what I could do.

So from March moving forward I just continued the diet and the continued the training. If I couldn’t get to the gym I just went powerwalking in the afternoons or if we went away for a weekend I would just get up early in the morning and go walking. I was always very mindful of my diet, not eating any takeaway just sticking to my healthy eating food plan.

So far this year I’ve lost another 7kg before I’ve totally plateaued. I put that down to the fact that now I do more weights, and obviously I’m putting on a lot more muscle now. My waist is still shrinking, as I’m still buying jeans smaller and smaller. I know that obviously the weight loss side of things are still taking care of themselves.

About August / September I noticed that I plateaued. For two weeks straight I noticed I didn’t lose a thing. So I started to panic, because I thought this hasn’t happened for so long. This is when I had a discussion with Jetts trainer Marissa. She said to me she was going to help me. So I agreed to some help, with personal training and Marissa wrote me some programs and introduced me to some new equipment.

I’m still 19 months into no alcohol, but I had a pizza last weekend. To date I have lost 57kg, currently weighing 90kg and I have never felt better! When I had weight on I noticed the simple day to day activities was getting harder, like work and golf. Purely because I was getting so obese. You become oblivious to it and then you don’t want to know the truth and what is actually happening. You don’t want to accept what you’re doing to yourself, it’s easy just to turn a blind eye to it. At some point you have to be kept accountable for your own actions.

This is when the fear crept back in because I didn’t know if I was able to do it and use I haven’t used this other equipment before. I was given the rower, the cross trainer, the stepper, the versaclimber, which was all the cardio equipment I hadn’t used before. It was the fear of failure, what if I try to do this and I doesn’t work, people will think that I’m stupid. Which turned out to be the total opposite.

Left - Mike with his Jetts Fitness personal trainer Marissa after the months and months of hard work.

I had a go at it and I did it with ease. Thereafter Marissa was writing me circuit based programs, and I thought to myself what’s the worst that could happen. So I gave it a go and to my surprise, I found it easy. It was easy because I was so much lighter and lost so much weight. Then of course came around J-series, I got caught doing a class, which I thoroughly enjoyed and now do every week. We continued on this track with Marissa giving me advice weekly, and the targets I should try and hit. I’d go about my business and hit those targets every week and the results were coming in, 1-2 kg a week right up until Boxing Day 2018 when I hit my 50 kg mark of total weight loss! So I achieved my goal with a week to spare.

To which point I was telling everybody that I was going to celebrate by having a drink and a pizza, but I still didn’t do it. I trained all through Christmas and New Year’s - still no alcohol and no junk food. This meant I went a full year without alcohol and takeaway, which up until this point has been totally unheard of for me. Obviously my confidence levels had been low but now my confidence levels are quite high.

COLLECTED STUPIDITY - BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR… By ROBBIE TANSEL As you probably know, the saying that is the title of my article this week concludes with, “You just might get it.” This story proves that little saying is correct. It seems only fitting that I’m writing this article only a couple of weeks after writing an article warning of the dangers of women sticking icey poles in their hoo haas as a way of combating the heat. I read this week of a Welsh man living in Germany who has set up a GoFundMe fundraising page to cover

the medical costs of a potentially “life-threatening erection”. Sounds like a 60’s movie doesn’t it. “Attack of the Life-Threatening Erections”. Or maybe a children’s book. “The Day Jimmy Had A Life-Threatening Erection”. Apparently the medical term for having a “life-threatening erection” is Priapism. This gentleman’s lifethreatening erection appeared after he took a Viagra like drug. Other lifethreatening erections include being caught in bed with the neighbour’s wife. You just can’t keep some people happy though, can you? One minute, he obviously wants an erection and presumably has been having a little difficulty, hence popping a pill. The next thing he has an erection that lasts for 10 days and suddenly he’s not happy. Make up your mind, mate. I’m assuming the money he is raising on his GoFundMe page will go towards buying a heap of loose fitting pants. I don’t want to belittle the gentleman’s problems, even though that’s exactly what he was trying to achieve, so to speak. I can imagine that it would be a fun novelty for a short period of time, but it wouldn’t take long before it was just getting in the road and annoying you. There has to

be a natural remedy to the problem, rather than resorting to surgery as he did. Surely it’s just a matter of imagining your mother and father at the moment of your conception, or thinking of one of your old primary school teachers naked. Wouldn’t that convince the soldier that he no longer needs to stand at attention. He explains in his social media posts about the issue that his sick pay from work has run out, which is one of the reasons he needs friends’ support on the GoFundMe page. I’ve got to say, if that was the reason I was absent from work, I wouldn’t be risking having to explain my medical condition to my boss when I presented him with a medical certificate. He also explains that he needs Reiki and acupuncture to aid his healing. I’ll google what Reiki is in a moment, but acupuncture? Is he honestly going to allow someone to stick little needles into his nether regions? No doubt that will sort a persistent erection out pretty quickly, and will probably stop the problem ever happening again. It gets better. Just Googled “Reiki”. It is an alternative medicine, commonly known as energy healing. Practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands on healing through which energy is transferred from the practitioner to the patient. Isn’t that how the problem started? I think “Reiki” is an ancient Latin word which translates as, “Just got caught in a dark room slapping the sausage, but managed to quickly

come up with an explanation that it was alternative healing that the person seems to have bought.” Another quote from the man’s social media post was, “I dont (sic) ask for things unless I really need them and I am fighting this disaster as hard and as strong as I can.” I thought previously he was saying that hard and strong was a problem, but now he’s using it as a positive. Again, make up your mind, buddy. And is this really a disaster? Earthquake kills thousands. Disaster. Deranged psychopath goes on shooting spree killing innocent civilians. Disaster. Children dying of malnutrition. Disaster. Got a stiffy that I just can’t shake (I know that’s a juvenile double entendre, but I couldn’t resist). Not the worst thing that will happen to someone today. When life gives you lemons make lemonade. Use it as a place to hang towels out to dry. Give your knuckles a rest for a week and use it to knock on doors when visiting friends. Or when life gives you lemons (erection that won’t go away), use it to stir your lemonade (use it to stir your lemonade). All right, that was too far, wasn’t it. Anyway, if you’ve got an erection that you just can’t get rid of…well I’ll probably struggle to understand the problem and show sympathy so don’t bother emailing me at robbietansel@ gmail.com

WORKOUTS MADE EASY

KITCHEN MAKEOVERS IN THE SPOTLIGHT Want to get ahead of the game – these are the four top tips for updating your kitchen in the coming 12 months. 1. Use natural materials Natural materials such as timber and bamboo are beautiful, timeless, and easy to incorporate into your kitchen. The raw tones will neutralise your space, add warmth and texture and can be worked into several kitchen styles. Many renovators are opting for durable laminate benchtop surfaces because of how easy they are to install. They are budget-friendly, and you can choose surfaces that replicate the look and feel of real timber as well as marble too, without the maintenance required. 2. Add a splash of colour While white kitchens will never go out of style, trends are moving towards something a little bolder. Darker palettes,

such as black, rich greens and navy, are certainly making their way into people’s kitchens. If you are going for a dark colour palette, make sure you have a lot of natural light entering the space. 3. Get creative with open shelves When done right, open shelves can make your kitchen look brighter and more spacious. 4. Incorporate clever storage solutions Integrate as much cabinetry storage as possible and consider blind corner cabinets and spice and wine racks to ensure everything in your kitchen has a home. Using cabinetry underneath your island bench is a great way to win extra storage space. If a clear, uncluttered bench is what you are after, then ample storage is the answer.

lifestyle1.net | 11

In an ideal world if you are looking to set up a home gym, you really want a dedicated space, if for no other reason than you don’t want to have to set up and pace away every time you decide to work out. Nothing kills motivation like having to first set up all the equipment to then start your workout and too often that allows training to be placed in the too hard basket. If you don’t have a suitable dedicated space you should at least go for equipment that takes up minimal space and is easily set up and packed away with minimal fuss and effort. A full length mirror is must have in a home gym and a TV, if possible, so you can utilise training videos if you want or binge your favourite TV show while running a few kilometres or lifting a few kilograms. Try and give the space a bit of life with some well thought out bold colour schemes and don’t forget the flooring should be non-slip, with ventilation also a key in any workout area. Budget plays a big part in which equipment you go for when setting up a home gym but nothing beats a skipping rope, kettle bells are also an excellent and versatile training tool, with bands also one of the most effective pieces of equipment you can use to give some oomph to your workout. Depending on budget constraints, you can then also look into the big ticket cardio machines, including rowers, treadmills and stationary bikes.

GRANT HIGH SCHOOL TOPS THE CLASS IN DEBATING Grant High School made a clean sweep of the recent Mount Gambier Debating Eisteddfod, taking out both the junior and senior sections. Eighteen students from the school took part in the competition, held earlier this month, at Mount Gambier’s Wehl Street Theatre. They competed with students from schools across Southeast South Australia and South West Victoria. In the junior section, Nicole Tracey, Molly Wild, and Chelsea Ray were the highest scoring team with each student impressing the adjudicator with their clear and wellprepared speeches and the quality of their rebuttal. James Allen was runner up for best junior speaker and Chelsea Ray won an impromptu game of rebuttal tennis. The Grant High junior teams included James Allen, Sienna Ashcroft, Tammin Brown, Jordyn Doll, Mia Kleinig, Chelsea Ray, Clarice Simmonds, Rayian Smith, Charlotte Tracey, Nicole Tracey, Molly Wild, and Jocelyn Work. In the senior competition, Annie Rasmussen, Meg Wilson, and Abby Little won the senior shield as they presented intelligent, impassioned, and humorous speeches on the topic challenging the idea that advertising is necessary. Abby was awarded the best speaker of the day for the quality of her delivery and rebuttal points. The second senior team, which consisted of Zari Stephens, Jayden Norman, and Keryl Ousey, also presented well-researched arguments and rebuttal on the topic that the media serves us well. The Mount Gambier Debating Eisteddfod competition is run yearly and is open to all students that wish to participate.

Portland’s newest whale has officially been named, with a Portland resident taking home top bragging rights for the winning entry. Michelle James has been selected as the official winner of the Whalemail ‘Name our Whale’ competition with her creative suggestion of ‘Patches of Portland’. Ms James’ entry was chosen from amongst 150 names offered during the three week long online competition. Ms James was surprised to hear her suggestion had been selected, but was overjoyed with the news. “I was shocked to hear that I had won, but it was a lovely surprise,” she said. “I had entered on the first or the second day of the competition and didn’t expect to hear back, so it was an exciting moment to hear that my name had been chosen. “The name, ‘Patches of Portland’, came from the distinguishing features of the whale, particularly the large white patches on the neck and belly and the missing tips of both tail flukes. “I also wanted a name starting with the letter P to team nicely with Portland. It’s quite a rare achievement and an honour to know I have been able to officially name our city’s newest whale.” As part of her prize Ms James will also receive a Portland Harbour Tours voucher, with four free places to complete a tour with exclusive access to shipping berths and the commercial

fishing fleet. The winning name was selected by the Portland Visitor Information Centre in conjunction with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) to ensure the name was not previously allocated to any other identified and recorded whale. The whale, ‘Patches of Portland’, was picked from the South East Australian Southern Right Whale Photo Identification Catalogue curated by the DELWP. ‘ Patches of Portland’ will now join ‘Kisme’ and most recently ‘Badu’ on the official identification register as Portland

whales. To keep up to date with whale sightings sign up for notifications via the Whalemail website, or visit the Whalemail Facebook page.

MEMBER FOR BARKER HONOURS PREDECESSOR “It is with great sadness that I learned of the passing of former Member for Barker, Dr. Jim Forbes. The Hon. Alexander James Forbes served as the Member for Barker between 1958 and 1975. Born in Hobart in 1923, Dr. Forbes was educated in Adelaide before attending the Royal Military College of Duntroon, graduating in 1942, and serving with 2nd Australian Mountain Battery from 1944 to 1946, New Guinea and Bougainville, and later with occupation forces in Japan and Germany and awarded the Military Cross, in June 1945. Dr. Forbes entered Parliament at the age of 32 in the 1956 Barker bi-election. Dr. Forbes held a number of senior positions in Government including as the Minister for the Navy from 1963 to 1964, Minister for the Army and Minister Assisting the Treasurer from 1963 to 1966, Minister for Health from 1966 to 1971 and finally Minister for Immigration from 1971 to 1972. Dr. Forbes served under a number of Prime Ministers, including founder of the Liberal Party Sir Robert Menzies. Dr. Forbes was a dedicated representative of the people of Barker and indeed constituents continue to recall his service fondly. My deepest sympathies go out to his family at this time. Vale Dr. Jim Forbes.” MEMBER FOR BARKER - TONY PASIN

SCIENCE IN FOCUS Ten teams of Year 6/7 Students from the three local Catholic primary schools attended the inaugural Sustainable Engineering Challenge earlier this month. Hosted by Tenison Woods College in the Pam Ronan Centre, the eager teams arrived from St. Anthony’s Catholic Primary School, in Millicent, and Mary MacKillop Memorial School, in Penola. The task for these teams was to construct a simple gearbox and wind turbine, using the kits provided. These kits contained gears, axles and blocks sufficient to build the gearbox. To turn the gears, they also needed to develop blades that can harness energy from the wind. The day began with students testing their creations, with both fast and slow blade speeds measured, and the students making the necessary adjustments to create speed changes via the correct gear ratios. The challenge gave students the opportunity to compete against each other for some amazing prizes, provided by Vestas and Infigen Energy. Tenison Woods College has formed a strong partnership with Vestas and Infigen Energy, established last year. The college was pleased to welcome delegates from both companies as not only supporters of this challenge, but as the judges of the competition. Glen Wilson, area service manager; Matt Faulkner, site supervisor and John Hutchison, service technician, from Vestas, and Shane Kelly, site manager for Infigen, connected with the students, answering many questions, but in some instances, being challenged by the students themselves on the calculations of gear ratios. “The connections Vestas and Infigen are forging with the community is sure to have a lasting effect on the aspirations of the students,” Glen said. “I was very much inspired and impressed by the level of dedication to the challenge, and to their learnings. It was also great to hear that there are students who are very interested in pursuing a career as an engineer after participating in this challenge. Green jobs are certainly a huge part of the future, and we are glad to be able to

see at grassroots level, the positive influence our company has had on these students and may even shape their career pathways in the future.” Science and mathematics coordinator Jason de Nys was the event organiser. “From the moment the teams arrived and came together, there was certainly a positive atmosphere in the air,” Jason said. “There were some spectacular achievements by these students, and some last-minute refinements – but all in all our judges were not only impressed, but they were overwhelmed by the talent and passion shown by students from all three schools. The dedication also shown by staff must be commended, and our sincere thanks must go to Vestas and Infigen, to really engage these students and give them rich learning experiences they will never forget.” Before results were announced, local Vestas service technician John Hutchison shared an engaging presentation with the students, again inspiring them and explaining many aspects of a Wind Turbine. John works at the Lake Bonney Wind Farm site. “The challenge was such a great day to be part of.,” John said. “The students really surprised me; not only on how engaged they were during the challenge but also their fantastic ability to think outside of the box when

it came to their rotor designs. Our goal was to have a fun time with this project and reveal to the students that their learning in the classroom can be adapted to real world solutions and skills. They are the future - and if Vestas and Tenison can continue to minimise the distance between the classroom and the work place this must be encouraged. I look forward to future interactions with the Students and to keep renewables and exciting ideas at the front of their young minds.” Vestas and Infigen provided some fantastic prizes, with an unbelievable major prize awarded to the winning team – an all expenses trip to Melbourne, visiting the head office and some of the Victorian sites. Each participant was given a show bag full of merchandise, as well as prizes and merchandise for the minor placings. Plans are in place with Tenison Woods College, Vestas and Infigen to create more engaging events in the near future with plans of this one-ofa-kind event evolving into a yearly challenge, with students excited in anticipation and already looking forward to next year.

Australia’s top up-and-coming cyclists will return to the region for the iconic cross-border Visit Victoria-Campolina Tour of the Great South Coast later this month. Launching the tour schedulelast week, event coordinator John Craven said more than 100 cyclists would tackle the 500km event from August 27 to September 1, covering six stages. Competitors will start in Mount Gambier, travelling to the coast of Port MacDonnell, heading inland for the inaugural Naracoorte criterium before crossing the border to tackle the rolling hinterland of Heywood and Casterton, before returning to the picturesque Cape Bridgewater circuit and Portland for the final CBD waterfront criterium. “The Tour of the Great South Coast is developing a strong reputation as a breeding ground for the future stars of Australian and New Zealand cycling and 2019 is no exception,” Mr Craven said. “In this year’s race one Australia’s world record-breaking teams pursuit track cycling squad will use the Tour as a key strength-building event in its preparations for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. The five-member contingent of West Australian cyclists will be one to watch throughout the six day race as they attempt to further enhance their s status as the kings of global track cycling.” Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said council was pleased to partner with its cross border neighbours at the City of Mount Gambier and District Council of Grant to host the country’s best up and coming competitors.

“Cyclists love returning to the Green Triangle for this season launch event because of the challenging course which tests their endurance and strength in what is recognised as one of the most picturesque courses on the national tour,” Cr Rank said. “This six stage event will provide national media attention to our region whilst further strengthening our visitor economy with the hundreds of support staff and families cheering-on the competitors. It is a wonderful spectacle and I strongly encourage the public to get track side during the festivities to see these world class competitors at their best.” Mount Gambier Mayor Lynette Martin was also looking forward to the prestigious event. “It is not only a great opportunity to showcase our region to the cyclists, their support staff and the spectators who follow the event but it is a wonderful opportunity for the wider region to work together to promote the Limestone Coast and South West Victoria on the national stage,” she said. A final street party celebration will be held on the final day, Sunday, September 1, for the 48km Portland CBD criterium with racing on the foreshore waterfront.

SOCIAL DANCERS BALL 2019

All the action from the 2019 Dancers Ball - one of the region’s most popular debutante events.

PROVIDING SUPPORT WHEN IT’S NEEDED THE MOST Cancer doesn’t discriminate and so neither does the Mt. Gambier Cancer Support Group Inc., offering support to whoever needs a helping hand, from those battling the disease, to close friends and family members looking to deal with the cancer diagnosis of a loved one. But anyone can join the group. You don’t have to have been touched by cancer, you just might want to help, with fundraising or other support. The group was started in 1981 by the late Rhonda Phillips – Mount Gambier Hospital nursing director, who was diagnosed with cancer and realised there was no real support network in the region, and membership of the group has hovered around the 20 mark for most of its history. Fundraising is certainly part of the core business of the group and it has funded a number of initiatives for cancer support in the region, including surgical equipment for the hospital, refurbishing two rooms at Cancer Council Lodges Greenhill and

Flinders, which provide accommodation for local patients when in Adelaide for treatment, a wig display cabinet, a chemotherapy chair and that is just the tip of the iceberg of what the group has contributed over almost four decades. “We work in conjunction with health professionals who, so often, refer patients to us,” Mt. Gambier Cancer Support Group president Lorraine Musgrove said. “Sometimes it is as simple as people just needing someone to talk to, sometimes they are chasing information regarding treatment and services and how to access those services and there is also the financial support.” The group meet on the second Monday of every month at the Naval Association Clubrooms at 21 Birdwood Avenue, Mount Gambier, and new members are always welcome. The meetings are sometimes informal discussions but also can feature guest speakers, tackling topics of interest. Last week they had a celebration

luncheon, thanking supporters from across the community for their help in the work of the group. Guest included, Mount Gambier Mayor Lynette Martin, Member for Barker Tony Pasin and Lynette Sage, wife of Grant District Council Mayor Richard Sage. Since its inception, the group has always been overwhelmed by the generosity of the Mount Gambier community when it comes to donations and fundraising. “We are just so grateful for the support of business, community groups and individuals that help us provide financial support to those who need it,” Lorraine said. “Every little bit is really appreciated.” The group also runs information sessions and there are certainly members in the group that have won their own cancer battles and know just how newly diagnosed people feel. “We really can empathise and can also help with what services can be accessed

as well as that all important support for the family which may need to continue for some considerable time,” Lorraine said. All money raised by the Mt. Gambier Cancer Support Group Inc. stays in the region, with the exception of the refurbishment of accommodation facilities in Adelaide, which cater for local patients. The group has also recently started to support Limestone Coast

based cancer patients who choose to undergo treatment the South West Regional Cancer Centre in Warrnambool.

MEDAL NAMED IN BETH’S HONOUR

THIRD QUARTER COSTS PIONEERS THE TITLE It is not too often we say this – but the Castec Rural Supplies Mount Gambier Pioneers had a second half to forget when it mattered most – the weekend’s championship decider against Forestville. It was the third quarter that did the damage with the Pioneers failing to score in the final four minutes of the quarter as they watched their nine point lead after a Kentrell Barkley basket evaporate to a 10 point deficit at the final break as the Eagles went on a 19-0 run to end the quarter. Grand final MVP Marcus Harris was a huge part of that run, scoring 11 of those points on his way to a game high 30 points, with former Pioneers Kane De Wit nailing the final two of that match turning run with a lay up. Once the Eagles had wrested control of the contest from the Pioneers they never looked like relenting and eight points was the closest the Mount Gambier team could get the scoreline in that final quarter. The match started full of promise. Erik Burdon registered the first score of the night with a trademark three, and captain Tom Daly stamped his authority on the contest early, putting up nine points for the quarter. Brad Rathjen also looked composed in the biggest game he has competed in, scoring 12 points for the half. The Pioneers trailed by two at the first break but looked set to take control and Barkley started to fire. The star US import scored 13 points for the quarter and with just over three and a half minutes to play in the half, the Pioneers had established, what was to be, for them, a game high 14 point lead. Seven players hit the scoreboard in that 33-24 second stanza and the depth of the Pioneers and their ability to find scores from a variety of players looked set to be the difference. With a minute and a half to play a Barkley three had the lead at 13 but the Pioneers gave up the last six points of the quarter to see Forestville only seven points in arrears ahead of the second half. The start of the third was an arm wrestle but every time the Eagles challenged, the Pioneers steadied and maintained their buffer – that was until that incredible 19-0 run, that also saw the Eagles nail a three at the start of the fourth to make it 22 unanswered points, and the match was gone. Most of the match stats were comparable but in the paint was where the Eagles were able to get the edge, scoring 20 more points from around the rim and outrebounding the Pioneers 58-47. The Pioneers also couldn’t quite get their three point radar on after half time aside from the final two buckets of the match for the eventual runners up. It is slightly simplistic but the 90-107 loss can be put down to that six minutes in the third quarter where the Eagles could do no wrong and the Pioneers couldn’t buy a basket. Kentrell Barkley top scored for the Pioneers with 26 points, while also pulling in a game high 22 rebounds and he the only Pioneer to really have an impact on the boards. Tom Daly scored 20 points, with Rathjen and Erik Burdon finishing with 12 points apiece and Sam Daly scoring 11. The club held its season presentation on Tuesday night. Full details on all the winners and the coach’s wrap of the 2019 season in next week’s Lifestyle1.

You don’t have to be involved in basketball in Mount Gambier to know that the name Beth Serle is synonymous with the sport in this region, and, indeed, on the national stage. So it is not surprising that the Pioneers Basketball Club has opted to name the club’s women’s MVP award after the stalwart. The men’s MVP honour has been named in honour of the late club patron and long time sponsor of the club, Allan Scott, since 2000, and with the inception of a women’s program for the 2019 season, the search was on for a suitable name for the women’s top individual honour, which was presented at Tuesday night’s season presentation, and Beth Serle was the obvious and standout candidate. “To have Beth’s name honoured by the basketball club for her outstanding contribution to basketball in this region and it is a credit to what she’s put into the sport,” club president Tom Kosch said. “To recognise her through the highest individual honour at our club is fitting.” As of this season, the club’s presentation night will be known as the Serle-Scott Medal.

HOOD JUST MISSES OUT ON MEDAL

It was a close of so near, yet so far, for Mount Gambier softballer Georgia Hood and her Australian team mates who fell one agonising run short of a bronze medal at the Under 19 Women’s Softball World Cup. Taking on Canada in the bronze medal play off at the weekend, the Aussies were on the back foot, trailing for the entire game and they could not get that equalising run, going down 4-5. Georgia pitched the entire six innings of the match. And while Georgia is not bringing home any bling she is bringing back a reputation that has been significantly enhanced on the national stage. She had a big impact on the tournament in the batting box and the pitching circle, showing why she was selected in the team’s leadership group for the championships. Georgia returns from the United States this week and Lifestyle1 will bring you a full wrap of her second World Cup as an Aussie softballer in next week’s issue.

LOCAL SPORT WEST IN CONTROL U15 Boys West 5 def Redbacks 0 West and Redbacks opened Lower South East Hockey Association round 19 action in cool conditions on Friday evening. It was clear from the opening whistle that Redbacks were intent on providing dogged resistance to the powerful West attack. The early stages were almost exclusively contested in the West attacking half with Redbacks time and again clearing the ball to the sidelines. The deadlock was broken in the seventh and eighth minutes when Angus Aitken scored a pair of goals to give West a handy advantage. Redbacks continued to face enormous pressure but Trystan Miller was having a great game for Redbacks, making many tackles and clearing the ball repeatedly. James Grant was also working hard at centre-half but in the face of the West attack was struggling to find the space or time to be creative. Aitken scored again before halftime. His strength and speed was proving a too much for the young

Redbacks side. Nash Lobley appeared to be set up at left halfback for Redbacks but his presence was being felt all over the defensive end. Without he, Miller and goalkeeper Logan Gore, West would surely have been a few more goals up at halftime. Gore in particular stood up when it really mattered. Scott Hanel capped off a fine game by scoring one of his own in the dying minutes. The 5-0 scoreline reflects neither the dominance of the West attack

or the brave resistance shown by Redbacks. Both coaches and supporters should have been very please with the effort of their teams. Above (left) - West’s Scott Hanel has control of the ball as Redbacks’ Josh Milan comes in to tackle.

PIONEERS WOMEN 2019 REPORT CARD The dust has now settled on the OneFortyOne Pioneers women’s inaugural Premier League season, giving debut head coach Matt Sutton a chance to reflect on the club’s 2019 efforts. Even though the title has now been decided and the Pioneers’ preliminary final opponent Forestville have taken the crown, the sting of losing that nail biting final hasn’t gone away. “At the end of the game it didn’t feel real,” Sutton said. “We let that one slip. The things we could control we didn’t do very well when we needed to do them well.” In the end, though, if you had offered the coach and his team a preliminary final berth at the beginning of the season when they were clamouring to put this team together, they would have taken it. “It is right that we feel disappointed but also we have to be proud of where we came from,” Sutton said. “At the beginning we were hoping to be competitive and even after the first weekend I though we were going to be up against it. But once we got to about the halfway mark of the season we knew, we were more than just competitive, we were really in it with a shot.” The building blocks of this time might have been put together quickly but they were put together well, starting with the captain Amanda Frost (pictured). The US import led from the front, on and off the court, and Sutton cannot speak highly enough of the league runner up MVP. “She was just awesome,” Sutton said. “I knew recruiting Amanda that she was a very good player. I watched hours and hours of her game tape and what struck me was her team was struggling but she still showed such positive body language and positive leadership and she was just so competitive and, in the end, I based her recruitment on that.” And while there is no question surrounding the impact she had on court, with her strong numbers in scoring, three point shooting and being the on court general, it was her work nurturing the club’s developing talent and her willingness to get involved in the community that shone through just as brightly. “We weren’t sure going into the season with so many young kids and Amanda was exactly what we were going to need and she didn’t disappoint, in fact, she exceeded our expectations,” Sutton said. The team’s other star US import Pachis Roberts was more of a whirlwind recruitment, given the clock was well and truly ticking on filling that last spot as the season fast

approached. Sutton was on an agent’s website and came across Pachis – she was not a player that had been put forward to him previously, and he liked what he saw. Early enquiries suggested there was no way the forward would be interested in a Pioneers gig but when Sutton spoke to her, her enthusiasm to join the Pioneers program was overwhelming and the Pioneers had, what was to that stage, the missing piece of the puzzle, a power forward to give them a presence in the paint. “And we got really lucky because she wasn’t just a good player, she was also an amazing person and so approachable for our young kids,” Sutton said. “We were a team that did ‘t really have size or speed so her versatility was really important for us.” The leadership of Melissa Russell, who went from assistant coach to player, in the pre-season, was also invaluable and she so often his a shot right when the team needed it, especially in the play-offs. Then there was the Wormald sisters, Maddy, who had recently moved to the area for work, and her sister Olivia, who the club was able to convince to join the Pioneers program. “It was great to have their inside knowledge of some of the players in the league,” Sutton said. “They were both tough players and great role players. They were just about doing the team thing and they were fantastic for us. It is a challenge for Australian players as they are training and working full time and to still bring that consistency every week was great.” Maddy had a break out game in the semi final win over Eastern Mavericks with a season high 23 points, as she showed just what she can bring to the floor when required. Penola’s Emily Winter was also a revelation and quickly became the third scorer in the team, putting up consistent numbers and showing she is not out of place at the elite level. “She is only 18 and she was getting a start and she was just such a hard worker,” Sutton said. “She is so passionate about basketball and that comes through at training, in games, all the time. She drove from Penola for every session, whether it was 6am weights or a court session and she never complained, she just wanted to be a part of it. She absolutely smoked the opposition the first round and then teams definitely put more work into her but she just kept working hard and she showed she can play at the next level. She absolutely exceeded my expectations.” As for the teenage brigade

LEGENDS? At first glance it looks like Jason Dunstall & Dermott Brereton but no the picture above is actually South Gambier Football Club president and six time premiership defender Wayne Glynn with Dermie. “It’s an absolute career highlight to meet such a legend”…. Brereton was rumoured to have said!

including Claire Hunter, Sarah Nulty, Keryl Ousey, Mikaela Horrigan and Emily Dawe, the opportunity to be part of an elite program and to train alongside the calibre of player that featured ion the starting five was invaluable. No other 15 and 16 year olds were such an integral part of a Premier League club’s program and as development players they were able to see how tough, how competitive and how strong you have to be to play at senior level. As for the coach, he loved being back in the fold of a basketball club. “It felt natural for me and it felt like I was really a part of something,” Sutton said. “I had all the old feelings back from when I played. I was nervous before games and I had all the emotions associated with being part of a team, all those things I missed from playing. I had good mentors around me and my focus was always how can we do things better, both individually and as a team.” Sutton always knew he wanted to coach and now he has a season under his belt that desire has only intensified. “I definitely want to continue in the role and I am really looking forward to continuing my coaching development.” Sutton’s inaugural season as a coach was rewarded when his peers voted him the Premier League women’s coach of the year. “I honestly see that as a team award,” Sutton said. “The other coaches only see you on game day and I think because our team exceeded everyone’s expectations that is why I won the award. “

THE GREATEST? A list has just been released of the 10 greatest boxers of all time with Floyd Mayweather in the number one spot. Hard to argue against Mayweather with his 50 wins and zero defeats but most surprising was seeing Muhammad Ali, who many consider the greatest sportsman, let alone boxer, of all time, only ranking at number four.

COINCIDENCE? NFL superstar Antonio Brown is currently unable to even train as he is suffering from frostbite after wearing incorrect shoes inside a cryotherapy machine. Bad enough in isolation but there is a ‘bigger picture’ in that he is the latest player hurt that featured on the cover of the NFL video game Madden. Since back in 1999, the game has made a habit of striking down whichever player earns the cover graphic. In total 22 players have graced the cover of the popular video game, only for 16 of them to have injury affected or severe drops in production the following season.

The National Championships start on Monday, August 26, with an open fours tournament which teams enter to practice on the carpets and get a feel of the venue; this is open to any local teams that may want to enter. Then the Championships open with an official opening on Tuesday morning at 8am with play starting at 8.30am to around 5.30, this continues for Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and on the Saturday finishing at around 1pm followed with Championship Presentations and Closing Ceremony.

This being the second time the South Australian hosted championships have been outside Adelaide.

Windy and cold conditions were faced by riders cmpeting in the Mount Gambier Cycling Club’s winter race series 40km Caves Rd course, which was race seven of the series, earlier this month, with several riders opting to complete a shorter course. Those who did finish the official race distance were rewarded with the three handicapped bunches coming together to create a windbreak that did ease the fierce crosswind. Once again, scratch maker, Nicholas Kidman recorded another win with the fastest time, sprinting strongly away from the bunch with only fifty metres to spare. Visiting Portland cyclist, Harold Morton, who had teamed with Kidman as fellow scratch rider, made Spek Peake work for his second position and was content with third. Unfortunately, due to the conditions of strong crosswinds and potential hail, no junior race was staged. To complete the day, a shared BBQ lunch

was shared at the clubrooms, followed by a wellsupported AGM. Above (main) - Nick Kidman leaves the main bunch in his wake. Above (inset) - Spek Peake & Harold Morton battle it out for the minor placings.
