Kelpie muster announces new date The Australian Kelpie Muster has announced a new date, moving from its traditional home of the June Long Weekend to October 24 & 25. Postponing the two day event, hosted in Casterton, and incorporating the Working Dog Auction and associated festival events, is a bid by organisers to hopefully still be able to draw the usual nationwide crowd that descend on the South West Victorian town to enjoy everything from the art exhibitions, poetry readings, street parade, Kelpie Triathlon and the showcase Working Dog Auction. Casterton Kelpie Association president Karen Stephens said the new date would be a one-off and the event’s 25th anniversary, set to be celebrated in 2021, would return to the June Long Weekend fixture. “Like many regional festivals and events, we have made the decision to reschedule the Australian Kelpie Muster to a new Spring date in the

hope that the event will run in its full capacity when the community recovers,” Mrs Stephens said. “Our committee is hopeful that this three month buffer will provide enough extension for the impacts of the pandemic to subside, however we will continue to consult with the State Government and take the latest advice.” While the new date has been set in the hope of the usual bumper crowds to attend the Casterton event, the committee is working to ensure, whatever the circumstances, the festival can proceed. “We are working through a number of mock scenarios at the moment to ensure our festival can continue in some capacity in 2020 and provide the important economic and social benefits it brings to the Casterton community and the broader Glenelg Shire,” she said. “Whilst we may be welcoming a Victoria only crowd, technology means

Street Parade we can still cater for our interstate friends. The Auction-plus website was used in 2019 with a number of bidders and buyers at their computers eager to watch the action. We anticipate this will play an even bigger role at this year’s events, and we are investigating more social digital channels to help share the action with our loyal followers. People travel thousands of kilometres each year, booking out accommodation, cafes and restaurants to be part of our beloved festival and we want to ensure, whilst things not to be returned to normal in 2020, everyone can feel connected in some way.” This year’s Working Dog Auction is anticipated to surpass $3million in
total accumulated revenue since the event first kicked off in 1997. It was as recently as 2018 that the Casterton auction held the world record for its $22,000 top price for a dog, and over the past 24 years, it has held a number of world records at what is Australia’s pre-eminent working dog event. “People love the iconic Kelpie working dog and we are committed to ensuring the festivities will be maintained for 2020,” Mrs Stephens said. “It might be on a new date, but we can assure the Casterton community is united to deliver as much colour, fun and frivolity with a full schedule of events.”

Limestone Coast residents place on forests for reasons beyond biodiversity such as shelter for native animals, areas of recreation, building resources and employment. Film panellist and a member of OneFortyOne’s finance team, Megan Jones said the standard of the videos was very high. “It’s great that so many kids wanted to show the natural beauty of our forests in a way everyone can relate to,” she said.” Fellow panellist Ockert Le Roux, OneFortyOne’s Harvesting and Roading Manager said a great amount of time goes into planning, filming and editing a video. “It was such a big effort for our entrants to participate, especially with all their other commitments,” he said. “Their passion for biodiversity and the wonder of nature really came though.” Secondary category winner Molly Wild heard about the competition from friends and when it was promoted at Grant High School by VET coordinator Ms Beck she decided to give it a go. “I have been interested in filmmaking ever since I first held a GoPro at the age of eight,” Molly said. “I remember taking it down
Lights, camera, action Forests and biodiversity have been in focus for the region’s students with Grant High School student Molly Wild and Reidy Park Primary School’s Owen Lubbe taking the honours in the 2020 film competition. To celebrate the United Nation’s International Day of Forests, which was held on March 21, and inspired by the theme ‘Forests and Biodiversity: Too Precious to Lose’, OneFortyOne curates the Limestone Coast school student film competition which is now in its second year which also
saw many students entering for the second time. The competition encouraged students to create a short video that showcases the biodiversity of our local forests and in its second year received more than 30 entries from primary and secondary students starring the amazing plants and animals that live in our local forests. Entries were assessed by a four person panel for originality, creativity, time (1 minute or less) and relevance. The films highlighted the value

to the Glenelg River with our family friends and simply filming what I saw and what I was doing. Since then I have always put up my hand to shoot videos for my schools about camps or other events and have always enjoyed trying new equipment and filming techniques to improve my skills.” And it was the Glenelg River region that formed the inspiration of Molly’s video which was filmed around Nelson. “The video I created was a compilation of local flora and fauna found in the pine forests near Nelson,” she said. “I aimed to show the incredible biodiversity found when you pay more attention and really explore from the ground, but also from above. It tells the story of what it is like to grow up with forests on our doorstep. I featured some shots of the trees from above using my Mum’s drone and the title shot using a photography technique known as light painting. Quite often I make a plan and an outline for my films but I rarely stick to them due to the unpredictability of nature. Despite this I find my films work best when improvising, as I see things I never knew was there or that are simply more beautiful in person.” Molly did win a photography competition last year but this was the first time she entered a film competition. “I have produced a couple of other films and one was displayed in Oatmill Cinema featuring beautiful locations around Australia as part of my Year 9 filmmaking course,” Molly said. “I most recently shot footage of the Grant High School bath bomb activity where students to create bath bombs to give to hard-working nurses.” And while Molly might not be looking to make a career out of film making it looks set to play a huge role in her future. “I know that the skills I’ve learnt and continue to develop will always be of an advantage, whether that comes to a multimodal assignment for school or filming an important day for my family’s keepsake, filmmaking will always be a hobby that I enjoy.” The Primary School winner Owen Lubbe was also thrilled to produce a winning entry. “I’ve had a lot of fun and it is a great honour to be a winner,” Owen said. “I hope everybody that tried can have success next time. I had great fun making it.” The videos can be found on the OneFortyOne Facebook page and www.onefortyone.com RESULTS WINNERS Primary – Owen Lubbe (Reidy Park Primary School) Secondary – Molly Wild (Grant High School) RUNNERS UP Primary – Bonny DeNys (Tenison Woods College) Secondary - Elijah Bond (St Martins Lutheran College)

Meal delivery program secures new home
Local charity Spare Ya Change 4 Kids has secured a new home after a deal was struck with the City of Mount Gambier to make use of the City Hall kitchen as a regular base for meal preparation and storage. The new base is all part of the negotiations the charity and council have been having since late last year as the Spare Ya Change 4 Kids program looked to expand and council looked to jump on board to help with logistics, including distribution. Early this year, Spare Ya Change 4 Kids was still providing meals for Melaleuca Park School, as it had been, basically since its inception, but three other schools were looking to tap into the meal delivery program and that’s where the council stepped in with the new home base to work in conjunction with one of the program founders, Don Pratt. “I said I was happy to service the extra schools but I just couldn’t continue to do it from my kitchen,” he said. So, for one day a week, Spare Ya Change 4 Kids, will work out of the City Hall commercial kitchen, preparing meals on Monday mornings in an 8am to 12noon shift and then packing and labelling meals in an afternoon shift from 1pm to 5pm.
“After the initial conversation about using the kitchen it only took an hour to get the go ahead which was great,” Don said. “We were then able to set the wheels in motion.” At this stage the deal runs until the end of July but with the option to extend and given a home base has been one of the key challenges for the charity, the news is all good. The call for volunteers to get involved has also been a huge success, with around 50 already signing up for a shift on the Spare Ya Change 4 Kids app, which you can download by heading to the charity’s facebook page and following the link. Each shift needs five people, with six professional chefs also offering their expertise to be part of the meal preparation project, which calls the City Hall kitchen home every Monday. The aim is to build up a bank of 1000 meals, with 300 meals completed a fortnight ago with another similar batch this week. After the hard work is done on Mondays, council then takes over to distribute the meals to the four participating schools – Melaleuca Park, McDonald Park, North and Mulga Street. “Having access to both a coolroom and a freezer means we can now build up our bank of meals like we have always wanted to do,” Don said. The meals are delivered to the school’s wellbeing coordinators, even during school holidays, and they have hand delivered the meals to the students who need them most. Forming a partnership with Regional Foodbank, which is also a recent achievement, has also further secured the future of Spare Ya Change 4 Kids.
“As of this week they will be providing fresh produce and it is pretty cool to have them on board,” Don said. And while the partnerships with both the City of Mount Gambier and Regional Foodbank are critical to the ongoing success and development of the Spare Ya Change 4 Kids project, at the heart of this charity has been the overwhelming support from the community. From the generosity at last year’s major fundraising day to more recent times when facebook posts updating everyone on the latest developments saw an unprecedented outpouring of donations. “Every second day I would come outside at my house and the verandah would be covered in fresh produce,” Don said. “People would just drop off vegetables – it weas amazing and so appreciated.” Don ended up with 80kgs of potatoes, and 100kgs of carrots and onions and that really helped set up those early batches of meals. Every Monday morning now looms as a Masterchef style mystery box challenge for the morning shift as they check out the fresh produce on offer and design three or four different meals to put together for the region’s at risk children. The generosity of the community and the partnership with regional Foodbank has never been more critical, given the main funding stream to this point for Spare Ya Change 4 Kids has been the donation of bottles and cans from pubs, restaurants and cafes, that has all but dried up at the moment. The registration of the project as an official charity is still waiting to be rubber stamped but when that paperwork is finalised, which has only hit a roadblock because the recent health situation has bureaucrats dealing with more pressing issues, cash donations will also be accepted. “The community have just really embraced this program,” Don said. “And we know people will continue to be supportive through volunteering. The commitment is small but the output is huge.” Any other schools interested in tapping into the Spare Ya Change 4 Kids program should contact the City of Mount Gambier.

Making history as art galleries go online Galleries might be closed to the public but art lovers need not despair with two community art collectives embracing online options as their new exhibition spaces. Penola based Gallery 54 and Mount Gambier’s Riddoch Art Gallery have both opted to go ahead with planned exhibitions by placing the works into an online space. Thumb Print, a group of artists working primarily as printmakers and illustrators in Mount Gambier, has made history as the Riddoch’s first online exhibition. Beautiful Enemies is the group’s latest offering - a print making exhibition that focuses on the ongoing and complicated battle we have with introduced species in Australia. And while Gallery 54’s publicity officer Chrissy Pudney had an online option in the works, the timing of the Riddoch exhibition has provided crucial intel to the hard working volunteer. Gallery 54’s exhibition Horizons, was planned to be part of the now-cancelled Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival, and so it has been revamped and renamed – New Horizons and Beyond. “The new name is a reference to not just the fact as a group we are expanding our horizons by moving the exhibition online but also the new horizons we are all facing at the moment,” she said. “The Riddoch Art Gallery exhibition has been a good one for me to look at and I am working hard to ensure our exhibition is live from May 1 as we had always planned.” And for the artists that have been working on their contributions for some time, the original thematic ideas remain.
“Horizons in the physical world is that fascinating gap between earth and sky—and the horizons in our life path looking forward, looking back where do they connect and what do they reflect about us,” Chrissy said. Ann Carpenter, Jo Fife, Jean McArthur, Anne Miles, Chrissy Pudney, Kaye Riley and Diana Wiseman are each working from home studios in their chosen media to bring a collection of new visions to be launched on the Gallery 54 website on Friday, May 1. Each artist will take photographs of each of their works and send them to Chrissy ready for her to curate the exhibition which will have a different make up to previous showings. “We are trying to make this one more uniform because of the online component,” Chrissy said. “Normally when you are hanging works in a gallery space, it has not really mattered how many pieces each artist has in the exhibition as in the end, the gallery space is filled but we want some uniformity online and so each artist is providing the same number of works.” Chrissy admits the group’s first ever online exhibition will be trial and error but she is working to upload each artists’ work as she receives them, giving her the chance to experiment what works best. The works being available for sale in the Gallery 54
exhibition has not changed and Chrissy has already created an online red dot – the traditional symbol placed on sold works. You can check out the Thumb Print Beautiful Enemies at https:// riddochartgallery.org.au/exhibit…/ beautiful-enemies/, while heading to the Gallery 54 website will take you to the New Horizons and Beyond exhibition. Visitors to the website are invited to contact via this website for any further information about the artworks. The artists are keen to communicate with the public with any questions about their work. Left - This piece by Ann Carpenter will be part of Gallery 54’s online exhibition.

Committed to the Limestone Coast A childhood on a farm on the Eyre Peninsula instilled a need for quality services in regional areas in Megan Heffernan and Naracoorte has been and will continue to be the beneficiary of that passion. The occupational therapist was one of two recipients in the recent Naracoorte Lucindale Council’s Business Entrepreneurs/Innovation Fund round of funding with more than $4000 allocated to her Naracoorte based business for equipment. “The equipment I will be able to purchase with this funding will be used with children where using a movement based, sensorimotor approach is an important part of making developmental progress and working toward functional goals they have for their day-to-day life,” the occupational therapist, with 13 years experience, said. “As a mother myself, I feel families in regional areas should be able to
“I was familiar with the needs of families in rural and regional area and was always committed to working back in that setting,”
“As a mother myself, I feel families in regional areas should be able to feel conﬁdent the services they can access are to a standard equal to those accessible to families living in the city.“ feel confident the services they can access are to a standard equal to those accessible to families living in the city.“ Working with children has always been her passion and being able to work so closely with a regional community is exactly where she dreamed her career would lead after she completed her studies at the University of Adelaide. She moved to Naracoorte in 2007. “I was familiar with the needs of families in rural and regional area and was always committed to working back in that setting,” Megan said. “My first position as a new graduate was primarily working with children and families in the community, and it quickly became a passion. I became acutely aware of the need for effective early intervention services that were able to work meaningfully with the whole family, understanding their unique challenges, strengths, concerns, and goals for their child.
The significance of the parent-child relationship and need to support parents where this was an area of particular difficulty or emotional distress became apparent.” Megan’s commitment saw her undertake further training in the area of parent-child attachment relationships, as well as working with children and carers where there is a history of relationship based abuse and trauma. “Part of what keeps me passionate about being a paediatric occupational therapist is the variety in the way I need to be able to support families from one session to the next, depending on the needs of that particular child and parent,” Megan said. “Areas of support often include sensory processing, emotional regulation, play, fine and gross motor skill development, school participation, handwriting, sleep, self-care and behavioural
challenges. Some children engaging in OT support may have a diagnosis of a specific neurodevelopmental disorder, developmental delay, intellectual or physical disability, however others do not. Some children have multiple complex needs, and others may just need some short-term support or parent education around a particular developmental area to make progress.” Families seeking OT support, or wanting to understand more about whether OT support is relevant for them and their child can contact Megan directly on 0455 542 251 or email@example.com

Medical student heads home to help Medical student Dylan Gracias has returned to his home town of Portland to play a part in easing the current national health challenges. Mr Gracias, in the third year of his medical degree at the University of Melbourne, has started in a clinical assistant role at Portland District Health (PDH) as part of the Student Assistance in Supporting Healthcare (SASH) program. SASH was launched to employ medical students in hospitals to help with medical tasks and alleviate the workload due to the current health situation. For Mr Gracias, PDH was the obvious choice. “I’m originally from Portland and moved to Melbourne to pursue study,” he said. “For the SASH program, I wanted to work in a rural setting and Portland was ideal.” Mr Gracias moved with his family to Portland around 2001, completing his primary schooling at All Saints and secondary schooling at Monivae College in Hamilton. In 2015 he moved to Melbourne to start a Bacherlor of Biomedicine while deciding whether to pursue dentistry or medicine. “I wanted to make an informed and experienced decision and decided to pursue medicine,” he said. He started his Post Graduate couse in medicine in 2018 and will finish next year. During his time in Melbourne, Mr Gracias has kept close contact with his Portland family. “I come home as much as I can; usually for all the major holidays and breaks,” he said. Mr Gracias was keen to be part of SASH to help alleviate stress on the healthcare system. “The idea is to employ and upskill medical students to support health services and to expand services where needed, so they’re prepared for the worst case scenario,” he said. “It has been happening in the city for the past few
weeks but not so many smaller rural hospitals. I took it upon myself to contact Portland District Health and put the idea to them and it worked out well.” PDH is planning to introduce an intern program next year and Mr Gracias’ role has been structured so he can help where needed while getting exposure to different facets of the rural health service. “This opportunity has allowed me to help PDH and the healthcare system, while still being extremely beneficial for my own professional development” Mr Gracias completed his clinical placements at St Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne and could have returned there for SASH. “When I thought about it, academic teaching is online so there’s no need to be in Melbourne currently and I’d prefer to come back to the country. Portland was always my first preference.” After graduating, Mr Gracias hopes to return to a rural destination, with Portland a high priority. “I’ve been surprised by the breadth of clinical exposure here; I’m thoroughly enjoying my time here and am looking forward to continuing to do so over the course of the coming months and potentially in the more distant future,” he said.
Bridge upgrade underway A critical new bridge crossing Morambro Creek is being constructed by Bull Bros Earthmoving on Grubbed Road, north of Cockatoo Lake. The new bridge will be a significant improvement on the existing bridge, which is in poor condition and too narrow for modern farm machinery. It will be suitable for wide farm machinery, includes new culverts to improve the flow of the creek, and improves road safety by widening and straightening the road. Grubbed Road is an important route which is frequently used for transporting farm machinery and to access the popular Cockatoo Lake. Naracoorte Lucindale Council was pleased to award this $400,000 project to local contractors and this will benefit our local economy and businesses in these challenging times. Further works are planned for 2020-21 with council’s draft budget including an allocation to resheet Grubbed Road.”

More work underway to alleviate mobile black spot issues The fire damaged mobile phone tower at Keilira, following the Decembner bishfires last year, is one of six locations in Barker set for an upgrade as part of the Federal Government’s $380 million Mobile Black Spot Program. Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts, the Hon Paul Fletcher MP, Minister for Regional Health, Regional Communications and Local Government, the Hon Mark Coulton MP, and Federal Member for Barker Tony Pasin (pictured right) have jointly announced Barker will receive six new base stations under the Round 5 allocation, providing improved mobile coverage in the community. “It’s fantastic news that communities in Barker will soon be benefitting from improved mobile connectivity provided by these six new base stations,” Mr Pasin said. “I am particularly relieved that one of these additional towers will be built at Keilira, which sustained such extensive damage as a result of the bushfire earlier this year.” New base stations will also be built under this round of the program at Avenue Range, Legges Lane, Paruna, Peebinga and Wellington. “Improved mobile coverage will help family and friends connect, access quality education and health services, do business and provide potentially lifesaving lifelines during emergencies such as bushfires,” said Mr Pasin. “Whilst there is always more work to do to address the many mobile phone blackspots across Barker this is a welcome step in the right direction.” Round 5 base stations are scheduled to roll out in the coming months with the first new base stations expected to be activated by the end of the year.

New era for gallery
A new era has dawned at the Hamilton Gallery with the appointment of a new artistic director who started in the role this month. Joshua White brings a wealth of experience to the role – his impressive resume giving Southern Grampians Shire Council no choice but to place their prized assets into his more than capable hands. Joshua comes to the Southern Grampians Shire from Newcastle, has a Master of Creative Industries and has spent close to a decade working within the cultural sector on the east coast of New South Wales. Early in his career, Joshua worked for Morpeth Conservation Company to restore, preserve and conserve a wide range of nationally and internationally significant artworks and artefacts. He also worked as a team member for Newcastle Art Gallery within the install and collection audit team. He then attained the position of technical officer and was the steward of the gallery’s prestigious collection and lead installation technician. Joshua then went on to attain the position of Curator at Gosford Regional Gallery in 2015 and he continued to make his mark on the national art landscape in that role with the development of significant national exhibitions and the extensive expansion of the gallery’s collection over a three-year period. In 2018, he became Urban and Public Art Project Leader for Lake Macquarie City Council and worked on a multitude of large-scale cultural projects and long-term local government policy. Joshua now has his sights set on delivering high quality cultural outcomes with the team at the Hamilton Gallery. “I am extremely excited to work with such a progressive council and to be the leader of a nationally recognised cultural facility. Hamilton Gallery has such an amazing collection and skilled staff, I’m privileged to be working with this team,” he said. “I look forward to engaging the community by developing local, national and internationally significant exhibitions and programs. Expanding our reach beyond the gallery walls with online content, public art and
Helping the region’s bushﬁre recovery effort
cultural projects is something I’m also really hoping to achieve.” Southern Grampians Shire Council CEO Michael Tudball has also enthusiastically welcomed the appointment. “We are thrilled to have attracted someone of Joshua’s calibre to the Southern Grampians Shire,” Mr Tudball said. “We’re looking forward to working with Joshua to grow and leverage from the Gallery’s deserved reputation and further develop arts and culture within our region and beyond.” Joshua has moved to the region with his wife and young family and are they excited about exploring all that the Greater Hamilton region has to offer.
With the fire season nearly at an end and the global pandemic of Covid-19 at the forefront of daily newsfeed, it is easy to forget that this summer saw unprecedented bushfires, and with it, unprecedented generosity in response. For the residents of Keilira, the bushfire, that started on December 30, burned more than 25,000 hectares and impacted 22 properties and was devastating. The fire not only destroyed homes, stock, pastures and sheds, it also took a massive toll on the wellbeing of the small Limestone Coast community. Stand Like Stone’s CEO Anne Kerr said the board wanted to ensure Stand Like Stone helped the Keilira community. “Afterall, we are the Limestone Coast’s only community foundation;
A Great Mothers Day Idea from
we were made by the community and we are for the community in times of need,” she said. “With this in mind, we were absolutely delighted when the team at Koonara Wines approached us immediately after the fire wanting to lend a hand and raise money for Keilira.” As well as the money raised by Koonara Wines, Stand Like Stone received funds raised by the Funds for Firies Family Fun Day in February, which was then combined with money in Stand Like Stone’s South East Disaster Relief Fund making a total of $15,000 available to grant out. Stand Like Stone has recently invited impacted Keilira residents to apply for a gift from the South East Disaster Relief Fund. “We wanted to make sure we didn’t overwhelm people at the start of their
recovery process as we were getting feedback that people needed time to deal with what was happening, including working through what other government and charitable assistance that was immediately on offer,” said Mrs Kerr. “Stand Like Stone’s vision is to inspire community kindness and courage in the Limestone Coast, and we think this gift to Keilira really epitomises that vision, as we celebrate the kindness of the people who donated, and applaud the courage of the Keilira community in how they continue to face the impacts of the fire.” Above - The devastation of the Keilira fire (left) on one property and how things have bounced back.

Taking the garden to the people
The dahlias in the Portland Botanic Gardens have been looking beautiful so rather than leave them in the garden where no one was able to enjoy them, Glenelg Shire Council donated these dahlias to businesses, hospitals and aged care facilities right across the Shire, so that everyone, including our most vulnerable, could still appreciate these beautiful flowers. Heywood Rural Health was extremely grateful for the donation, using the flowers to form part of their ANZAC Day wreaths.
Mount Gambier’s Sunset Kitchen is continuing to provide its free takeaway meal service with both Monday and Wednesday night now seeing hot meals, as well as other snack foods, including fruit and pastries, at the ready to hand out to anyone who heads to the Frew Park kitchen. The usual weekly offering is take away meals on Monday and a sit down two course meal on Wednesday but kitchen volunteers have adapted to the current situation to now offer a take away service on both nights, between 6pm and 6.30pm. Sunset Kitchen volunteer Maree Thompson said the kitchen had already seen a number of new faces in the past couple of weeks. “We have been able to give out quite a bag of goodies with our meals which we know really helps,” Maree said. Anyone is welcome to head to the Sunset Kitchen on Monday or Tuesday evenings between 6pm and 6.30pm to pick up a meal.
End of an era After almost a quarter of a century of growing apples at Kalangadoo Michell & Chris McColl have handed over the reins, sending their final delivery of Pink Lady apples to stockists in Mount Gambier and South West Victoria last week. Regulars at the Limestone Coast Farmers Market, the couple and their incredible produce has been a staple on the food landscape in this region.
Windfall for local support group The Mount Gambier City Council has committed $10,000 to the Mount Gambier Prostate Cancer Support Group to assist in their purchase a Transperineal Biopsy Machine for the Limestone Coast.
Storage solution for meal delivery service The Salvation Army Portland and the Portland Community Mealshare Program are busier than ever experiencing an increased demand on services. This increased demand meant that they were running out of space to refrigerate the ever growing number of meals. Glenelg Shire Council have stepped in to solve the problem, lending a commercial refrigerator to the charity. Now the Mealshare program has more than
enough room to store their meals and support our community.

UNCLE TOM’S CABIN Harriet Beecher Stowe Uncle Tom’s Cabin brought the evils of slavery to the consciences and hearts of the American people by its moving portrayal of slave experience. Harriet Beecher Stowe shows us in scenes of great dramatic power the human effects of a system in which slaves were property: the break up of families, the struggles for freedom, and the horrors of plantation labour. She brings into fiction the different voices of the emerging American nation; the Southern slave-owning classes, Northern abolitionists, the sorrow songs and dialect of slaves, as well as the language of political debate and religious zeal. The novel was, and is, controversial and abrasive in its demand for change. Harriet Beecher Stowe was born in Litchfield, Connecticut, in 1811, the seventh child of a well-known Congregational minister, Lyman Beecher. The family moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, where she met and married Calvin Stowe, a professor of theology, in 1836. Living just across the Ohio River from the slave-holding state of Kentucky, and becoming aware of the plight of escaping slaves, led her to write Uncle Tom’s Cabin, published in book form in 1842. She wrote the novel amidst the difficulties of bringing up a large family of six children. Uncle Tom’s Cabin first appeared as a 40 week serial in The National Era, an abolitionist periodical, starting with the June 5, 1851, issue. It was originally intended as a shorter narrative that would run for only a few weeks. Stowe expanded the story significantly, however, and it was instantly popular and she eventually consented for it to be published as a complete book.

LOCAL SPORT The Mount Gambier District Little Athletics Centre 2019/20 season was cut short but it was still a stunning season for the 144 registered athletes, aged from four to 16. In a good sign for the future, 55 of those athletes were new members, with the Under 9 Girls and Under 7 Boys categories attracting the highest number of participants. The centre not only runs a three week program during the season that exposes the athletes to running/walking, jumping and throwing events over the three weeks of sessions but also adopted the On Track program for the Under 6 age group, which has a strong emphasis on fun. The centre saw athletes rack up around 1800 personal best times over the course of the season, while 18 new centre records were set, including the eclipsing of some long standing marks. Lara Wilson set a new shot put record in the Under 14 Female, when she hit the 9.62m mark, breaking the 1990 record from Tanya Lowe (9.61) by the narrowest of margins, also eclipsing the discus record, that had stood for 15 years, by two and a half metres, breaking her own new record as well in the 2019/20 season. That was by far the longest standing record broken this season with many from the early 2000s also going by the wayside. Other record breakers were Leila Croker (Under 14 Female javelin & 80m hurdles); Jacob Gordon (Under 11 Male discus & 1100m walk); Hayden Crowe (Under 16 Male 100m & 400m) and Hamish Gordon (Under 10 Male shot put & 1100m walk â&#x20AC;&#x201C; breaking both twice). Jorja Glynn, Cody Beames, Jessica Holman and Harrison Ellis also set records in the 80m hurdles, which was a new distance in their age group category. Aside from the Gold, Silver & Bronze medals handed out in each age group, there were some other special awards handed out at season's end with Hayden Crowe named Athlete of the Year and Kelly Hillstone named Club Person of the Year. Darcy Burford, Sara Richards, Isobel Richards, Fergus Tarr, Samuel Ellis, Riley Kennett, Jack McGill & Lucy Dening were honoured for hitting the 50 attendance mark, while Jack Thompson, Cooper Hutchesson & Connor Hutchesson were honoured for 100 attendance achievements. The input from specialist coach Sally Taylor and former athlete Kaylee Whitehead, who took on the Tiny Tots program, was also recognised. At this stage, the 2020/21 season will kick off in Term 4 this year and run through until May 2021, with the cross country events rounding out the season. A full list of medallists in each age group will be published next week to include the silver and bronze medallists.

LOCAL SPORT No place like home for sister act At the moment, the training has not changed quite as dramatically as the location for Super Netball sisters Nyah and Sienna Allen. The duo returned home to Mount Gambier when the 2020 season was postponed and State borders were set to be closed and since then, while they have obviously had no team sessions, it has basically been a continuation of the preseason. Nyah, leaving behind the state-of-the-art training facility at Collingwood, where she was also rubbing shoulders with the AFL and AFLW stars, and Sienna, the warmth of Queensland from her home base with the Sunshine Coast Lightning. Three weights sessions three interval conditioning sessions, three aerobic based sessions, five skills sessions and yoga and stretching sessions make up the now typical week for the sisters, who have the added value of being able to train together. They are the perfect training partners, Nyah honing her craft as a goaler and Sienna as a
“...we have been using the Valley Lake & Centenary Tower trails to build on our aerobic endurance...” Sienna Allen (Sunshine Coast Lightning)
“...it has been so valuable training with each other as we can push each other and compete in trainings...” Nyah Allen (Collingwood) defender and this unique situation with being back in their howe town has afforded them the rare opportunity of actually training together. “Nyah and I have set up a gym in our house,” Sienna said. “We have been using the Valley Lake & Centenary Tower trails to build on our aerobic endurance and the tower stairs for speed and power and improving footwork.” And younger sister Nyah believes the opportunity to have a training partner in these unsual times has been a huge bonus. “We have been competing against each other doing time trials which has been really fun and different,” she said. “Coming home has been a great opportunity to train against each other and have some freedom to exercise outside in the fresh air. We forgot how open and pretty Mount Gambier is with the lakes and mountains.” Having a live-in training partner has been invaluable with the skills sessions, with the duo being able to set up a number of focussed drills that those training solo would just be able to complete. “We have been trying to stimulate what we would be doing at training,” Sienna said. “Defensively I have been using this time to set up different scenarios and practising my body angles and the way I position my body to see the ball and player and the angles I run to intercept the ball. We have also been focusing on improving our ball handling, using tennis balls and netballs to improve our hand eye coordination and ball placement.” Being in Mount Gambier, where the State restrictions are less arduous than both Queensland and Victoria, has been a godsend for the girls and they will return to their clubs, when allowed, safe in the knowledge they have worked as hard as possible and to the highest possible level while dealing with this unprecedented situation. “Mount Gambier is a beautiful place with lots of space to train,” Sienna said, with both girls admitting while being home has been great, they do miss their team mates and the competitiveness of the team environment at training sessions. Both girls have daily contact with players and coaches
“...we give each other honest tips and feedback...” Sienna Allen (Sunshine Coast Lightning) via Skype meetings and What’s App group chats. But they do realise by training together and being able to simulate some team training drills, they have had the chance to work on their game in a more conducive environment than most. “A lot of our team mates don’t have the ability to train with other players due to the current situation so it has been great training with and against Nyah as it gives me immediate feedback on the intensity that I am training at,” Sienna said. “We give each other honest tips and feedback.” Nyah agrees, having a training partner has added to the intensity of their work outs. “It has been so valuable training with each other as we can push each other and compete in trainings,” she said. In her second season with the Sunshine Coast Lightning, Sienna is looking forward to returning to team training, given the calibre of team mates she can learn from every day. “I am very lucky to be able to train daily with the number one and two ranked netballers in the world, being Karla Pretorius and Laura Langman and as a result my knowledge of the game has improved massively,” she said. “Lightning are a very tactical team that love structure, especially in defence.” Nyah is also in her second season as a training partner, moving to the high profile Collingwood franchise for the 2020 season and she could not be happier with the move. “I have enjoyed everything,” Nyah said. “I love the people and trainings and I have learnt a lot from Natalie Medhurst. She is so knowledgeable and smart. Rob is the best coach I have had so far. He thinks outside the square and has so much attention to detail. I haven’t came across a coach like him and he also has such a strong relationship with all the players.” At this stage there has been no indication as to when Suncorp Super Netball might be able to take to the court.
“...we have been competing against each other doing time trials which has been really fun and different...” Nyah Allen (Collingwood)
CLASSIC SPORT MOVIES Million Dollar Baby (2004) Wanting to learn from the best, aspiring boxer Maggie Fitzgerald (Hilary Swank) wants Frankie Dunn (Clint Eastwood) to train her. At the outset, he flatly refuses saying he has no interest in training a girl. Frankie leads a lonely existence, alienated from his only daughter and having few friends. Maggie’s rough around the edges, but shows a lot of grit in the ring and he eventually relents. Maggie not only proves to be the boxer he always dreamed of having under his wing, but a friend who fills the great void he’s had in his life. Maggie’s career skyrockets, but an accident in the ring leads her to ask Frankie for one last favour. Swank took home the Best Actress Oscar for this performance. Soul Surfer (2011) Thirteen year old Bethany Hamilton is a champion surfer who was born to be in the water. But after a fun night out night surfing and what should be a fun day in the water, she is attacked by a shark and loses her arm. Rushed to the hospital, she remains calm, and maintains her faith in God. Now she has to re-learn how to do everything with only one arm - including how to surf. It will take her friends, family, and her Christian faith to get her back into the water, but if that is where she is meant to be, she will find a way to get there. We Are Marshall (2006) Football is a game that knocks you down, then expects you to get back up. Life hit the West Virginia town of Huntington and its Marshall University even harder. When it did, Jack Lengyel came by to help pull them onto their feet by taking the job no one wanted: rebuilding the Marshall football program only months after a plane crash wiped out Marshall’s beloved Thundering Herd. Matthew McConaughey portrays Lengyel, the energetic, compassionate coach of inexperienced players whose chances of victory are slim and none. They’ll go with the slim. And as they do, their true-life story of heart, healing, and football will thrill and inspire you. It’s game day. Time to play till the whistle blows!
“...it has been quite challenging without a full gym but I am making do with what I have...”
Close to a return When Brad Close was given an AFL lifeline by Geelong last year in the rookie draft at pick 14, the North Gambier premiership star couldn’t wait to start life at Kardinia Park. And for the three week block at the club prior to the Christmas break everything was going smoothly with the usual orientation sessions and a raft of fitness testing as the five new draftees were introduced to life on an AFL list. “It was all about seeing where our bodies were at,” Close said. “There was not a lot of actual training just a lot of testing from running to strength to all kinds of things. We maybe did half a training session here and there. That is mainly about getting our bodies to adapt to what is required so it was almost laid back at first.” There was a gruelling 15 minute time trial that Close was assured everyone hates doing but what he was pleased about across all the testing was that he appeared to be around the mark. “Going into it I was nervous and a little worried about what shape I was in,” Close said. “But all the new guys were pretty similar. Some were better at running, some better at the gym but mostly at the same level.” Once post Christmas training started, Close started to feel even more comfortable on the training track but admits there still was a period of adjustment once he was doing the full load, which is five and a half days a week. “For the first few weeks I remember the body was always sore and I was tired every night,” Close said. “But my body did adapt and I got into a rhythm and my body quickly started to feel better.”
That solid two month pre-season certainly gave Close a great insight to life inside a club. For three days a week he is basically at the club from 8am to 5pm, with a training session in the morning and then weights in the afternoon. Other days are filled with swimming and boxing and other non-football sessions, with a strong fitness component and there is also the training videos to analyse and go through. As new players there has also been a raft of player education sessions, some run by the AFL Players Association and others direct from the club, covering finance, cultural awareness, drugs, alcohol and gambling. “We did do gambling and drugs and alcohol session when I was at Glenelg but all the other stuff is really new to me,” Close said. And that’s not the only stark difference, giving life on an SANFL list, where Close was part of Glenelg’s drought breaking 2019 premiership, was only two nights a week of training with an extra strength session and an optional session. Close is loving his new training regime, though, and also taking advantage of the outstanding new facilities at Geelong, especially the raft of recovery options, including the pool, ice baths and spa. “I am there a lot on my off days as well,” he said. “I am making sure my body can be the best it can be.” There has also been plenty of information regarding nutrition, with the club’s dietician
even taking the new recruits on a shopping trip to Coles to show them just what they should be buying and what they should be avoiding. The information handed out on nutrition hasn’t seen Close have to make too many changes, except for perhaps the amount he eats. “I have to eat as much as I can,” he said. “It is all about refuelling.” He has also been guided through the maze of protein powders and other recommended supplements to ensure he keeps putting on mass and keep in shape. There was also plenty of time for inter-club training matches which also allowed Close to find his feet and develop his role in the forward line. And he loved the experience of travelling to the Gold Coast for one of the club’s official preseason games. “Obviously the result wasn’t great for Geelong but it was a great experience for me to see how you train and prepare for a game, what’s involved when you travel to play and I think that will be good for me if I get another opportunity,” he said. Close works closely with the forward group and is tapping into the intel of Gryan Miers and Luke Dahlhaus, who play similar roles to what the Cats are hoping Close will play at the Cattery, while Tom Hawkins has also been a good source of information for Close, who, from a coaching staff point of view, has worked most closely with forward line coach Corey Enright. He shares a house with Jake Kolodjashnij and Close has also enjoyed learning the ropes from a teammate. “He was been injured a bit so we are on a different training set up but it has been good just to learn from him and have someone to hang out with that is doing the same stuff as me,” Close said. Of course, Close has found himself back in Mount Gambier much sooner than anticipated, although at the end of last week, he was hoping to have a return date from the club for his return to Geelong. It has seen Close set up with a solo training program to keep in shape, as well as a couple of meetings a week online, just to keep in touch with the coaching staff and players. “It has been quite challenging without a full gym but I am making do with what I have,” he said.
“...I am making sure my body can be the best it can be...”
CLASSIC SPORT MOVIES Seabiscuit (2003) On New Year’s Eve, 1938, columnist Walter Winchell published his annual list of the year’s top ten newsmakers. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was among those mentioned. So was British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain and Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. The tenth spot, however, went to a horse. In the 1930s, when Americans longed to escape the grim realities of Depression era, Seabiscuit became a working man’s hero. At the height of his career, Seabiscuit became a national obsession. His name was used to sell everything from oranges to hotels, from ladies’ hats to dry-cleaning services. Tens of thousands of fans swarmed to the racetracks just to see him work out. One writer called the phenomenon Seabiscuit-itus. Moneyball (2011) Based on a true story, Moneyball is a movie for anybody who has ever dreamed of taking on the system. Brad Pitt stars as Billy Beane, the general manager of the Oakland A’s and the guy who assembles the team, who has an epiphany: all of baseball’s conventional wisdom is wrong. Forced to reinvent his team on a tight budget, Beane will have to outsmart the richer clubs. The onetime jock teams with Ivy League grad Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) in an unlikely partnership, recruiting bargain players that the scouts call flawed, but all of whom have an ability to get on base, score runs, and win games. It’s more than baseball, it’s a revolution - one that challenges old school traditions and puts Beane in the crosshairs of those who say he’s tearing out the heart and soul of the game.
