Cover - Decor House is your one stop shop for creating a home She has been helping people across the region style their homes for two decades and in the past couple of months, it has been her own career and business that has undergone the makeover from style queen Deanne Carmody. After 16 years of working side by side with her business partner to build up the home decorating business, Deanne (pictured) officially took the reins as a sole trader on March 1, with Michelle transitioning to retirement. “It was a big decision but an exciting one and I was really committed to keep working on the business,” Deanne said. “I still have so much I want to do.” And she wasted no time throwing herself into a redevelopment of Décor House’s Commercial Street West

store – freshening the tired premises and transforming it into a stunning space that feels just like home. “I really wanted it to be welcoming and comfortable so we have the fresh brewing coffee, homemade biscuits, the chairs by the fireplace, a dining table where you can sit and go through samples,” Deanne said. “I also revamped the lighting to make the space much brighter and lighter.” It has not just been a makeover for the shop, though, Deanne has also moved on making Décor House a one stop shop for all your home styling needs, adding homewares and giftware to the Décor House catalogue, to go with the beautiful, inspiring and practical collection of unique curtains, blinds, outdoor blinds, bedding, cushions and upholstery that have

been sourced from Australian suppliers and been a hall mark of the Décor House experience. As has the personalised service and Deanne, who has brought Janice Proud on board to help service the customer base. “Janice has an extremely friendly and personal approach which is extremely imprtant to both of us” Deanne said. “She brings a really good style and an eye for colour and detail.” And the Décor House duo is on hand to cater for a range of products from recovering a cushion to styling an entire new home or office space. No job is too big or too small and over the years Deanne has helped someone re-upholster grandma’s favourite chair to styling the region’s aged care facilities to working in Adelaide and Melbourne and everywhere in between. “I am more than happy to come to you,” Deanne said. “I think it is really important to treat people the way you would want to be treated. For me, it is all about listening to what you want – not to tell you what you need – and to also bring ideas so we can work together to create whatever look and feel you want.” Décor House has always prided itself on being a quality provider that also provides an

affordable service with that personal touch and Deanne has also seen the project right through, working closely with local builders, tradesmen and craftsmen to help you achieve that stunning final product. Deanne also used local trades to transform the Décor House store and was thrilled to be able to keep working through the current health crisis that has made life tough for so many businesses. “Basically I took over at the start of the corona virus pandemic but I was committed to taking on the store as a sole trader and committed to getting the refit done and it was great to be able to give plenty of work to local trades and everyone was so wonderful and did a great job,” she said. “I just prefer to be positive about things and not letting anything stop you when you want something.” And it was that determination that saw her earn a start in the industry in the first place, fighting hard to secure a job at Somerfield Carpets and working hard to learn the ropes of the soft furnishing business before branching out with Décor House, 16 years ago – the 16th anniversary

milestone coming on the very day Deanne become the boss on March 1 this year.

w go Making sure the sho

Four showground facilities across the Limestone Coast are set for a much needed overhaul after receiving significant Federal Government funding to undertake projects that for many show societies had been on the wish list for decades. Naracoorte Pastoral and Agricultural Society topped the region with a $301,000 grant, the Keith and Tintinara District Show Society are set to receive $280,000, almost $80,000 is headed to the Penola Pastoral Agricultural and Horticultural Society bank account, with just over $75,000 set to finance the Millicent Agricultural Horticultural and Pastoral Society project.

For the Naracoorte Society, the windfall will fund a project more than two decades in the making. “The P & A Society had a strategic development plan back in the late 1990s and it had three stages,” secretary Amanda Lock said. “Stage one and two have been completed but we still had stage three on the books.” Stage one and two saw a number of works including the replacement of the electrical work for the camping area, including undergrounding power, the removal of the old trotting track around the main oval and the amenities being demolished and rebuilt. The $301,000 cash injection will now see Stage 3, the redevelopment of the administration building, the former football clubrooms, to provide a revamped events facility, which will incorporate an exhibition space, board room, kitchen, toilets, storage areas and a carpark upgrade. “It could be an amazing space, not just for the show, but for the community,” Amanda said. “It could be hired out for all sorts of functions and events, including real estate auctions, workshops, any number of different functions.” With the money in the bank,

“...it could be an amazing space, not just for the show, but for the community...” Amanada Lock Naracoorte officials had a meeting with a draftsman at the end of last week to kickstart the project, which has a timeline of a 2021 completion. With the building in line for the overhaul on the boundary of the showgrounds area, the disruption to any showgrounds events will be minimal and the 2021 show can certainly work around the possibility of not having the usual exhibition space. “We can certainly come up with a solution for that,” Amanda said, assuring the community the usual cooking, craft and other show competitions that need the exhibition space will still be on the 2021 program.

The show society is also looking forward to being able to use local contactors to complete the critical redevelopment. The Penola Society has also welcomed their grant, which will see the replacement of the existing 60 year old Warner Pavilion with a fully powered steel pavilion at the McCorquindale site. “We are overwhelmed with the success of the grant,” secretary Kathy Fennell said. “We are going to build a multi purpose shed which will replace a very ancient shed. We have wanted to do this for 30 odd years but haven’t had the finances to do it. This grant was a once in a lifetime opportunity so we thought this is a huge chance for us to gain some funding. A lot of work went into the application and we are most grateful to our grant writer Cathy Hughes. We also thank the local community for their support in pledging more than $30,000 towards the project. This is Penola, a tight knit

“...the building will be a huge asset not only for the show society but to the community in general with sporting groups and service clubs able to use the facility and will also be suitable to hold other events...” Kathy Fennell

supportive community.” The society was also grateful to the assistance and support from Wattle Range Council and was looking forward to the project getting underway later this year. “The building will be a huge asset not only for the show society but to the community in general with sporting groups and service clubs able to use the facility and will also be suitable to hold other events,” Kathy said. The Keith grant is for the demolition of an existing hall and construction of a disability accessible multi-purpose community hub including activity areas and a securable administration space. The installation of a power generator, complete with a custom built trailer will also be part of the project. The Millicent grant will finance the redevelopment of the kitchen facilities at the showgrounds. The grants were provided through the Regional Agricultural Show Development Grants program and announced last week by Member for Barker Tony Pasin, who said the grants would benefit both agricultural show societies and local towns and communities.

“In many regional areas agricultural shows and field days are the heart and soul of our regional communities,” he said. “They help bring communities together, bridge the divide between country and city and provide a key injection into the local economy. These events showcase the hard work and innovation that goes into producing Australia’s food and fibre, and in Barker we have some of the best in the nation.” Many shows and field days have been impacted by the recent health crisis, with many cancelled. “These grants will help our show societies refurbish their show grounds and facilities, so that when their next event rolls around they will really have a great show on offer,” Mr Pasin said. “I want to see our shows continue to grow in size and popularity and bridge the divide between country and city. There are around 580 agricultural shows across Australia, contributing to around $965 million to the economy each year, with nearly six million Australians visiting an agricultural show each year.

WAY DOWN SOUTH

“...it is the journey that will appeal to many people...” Peter Carr (festival director & promoter) Music festival aficionados need to get out their diary, with a new music festival already on the 2021 calendar. February 19 and 20 are the dates to circle in your calendar to hit the road and head to Narrawong for a

new music festival to hit the national schedule. Way Down South Music Festival (WDS), named for being at one of the southernmost points of Australian mainland, is located on Gunditjmara

“...I thought it was a fantastic opportunity to showcase the region and program a weekend of entertainment…” Brian Cavagnino (music director & programmer)

Country in the pretty seaside village of Narrawong at the western end of the Great Ocean Road, and a stone throw from Victoria’s birth place, Portland. WDS offers a welcome and cooler retreat for wanderers and seekers of all ages to camp on-site, play outdoors, relax, listen, and watch the sun go down. WDS is looking to be a boutique music festival with a soon-to-be announced line-up incorporating a

fusion of Americana, Australiana, Folk and Indie artists, tapping into the passionate and remarkable talent of Australia’s music community. WDS music director and programmer Brian Cavagnino, from SouthWest Productions, was excited by how the line-up was starting to shape up. ‘When approached, I thought it was a fantastic opportunity to showcase the region and program a weekend of entertainment,” he said. “I have been busy planning production and programming some incredible talent. It will be quite a diverse program that will have something for everyone.” Mr Cavagnino has more than 30 years’ experience in the music industry, having been the Port Fairy Folk Festival technical director for the for the past 13 years. WDS festival promoter and director Peter Carr was also enthusiastic and excited about the prospect of this music festival, especially the location and the great line-up of artists currently in discussions with the festival hierarchy. “With so many Australians choosing to holiday by hitting the road, it is the journey that will appeal to many people, but once they have reached the destination there will be plenty on offer,” he said. WDS will take place on 40 acres of private property nestled against the expansive Narrawong Beach and the picturesque Surrey River. “Festival goers will have the option

Mr Carr acknowledges the draw card for many people will be just 15km away - the rare landscape that holds special significance for the Gunditjmara people, Budj Bim. “Budj Bim landscape has been formally recognised on the UNESCO World Heritage List for its Aboriginal cultural values,” he said. “What a great opportunity to learn more about the rich indigenous history while in the Glenelg Shire area.” Tickets will go on sale soon with first release weekend pass selling for $190pp plus booking fee and day pass (Saturday only) for $130pp plus booking fee. WDS is an all-inclusive, BYO event. Food trucks will be on-site to cater for all tastes. To keep in the loop head to www.waydownsouth.com.au

The power of her passion has only been in recent years that she has focussed on the travel and music photography that is the newest chapter in her life. “When I made the decision to leave teaching, I knew exactly what I was going to do, I wanted to be in the photo pit but wasn’t sure how to get there,” Deb said. “I Google searched how to become a concert photographer and discovered an Austrian photographer who was offering courses and sharing his knowledge of concert photography.” That kickstarted not just Deb’s development of the required skill base to break into the industry but also introduced her to a network of contacts that have been critical along the way. “It opened the door to a whole world of professional concert photographers, many of whom are now good friends,” Deb said. And one of those contacts was hugely influential in establishing her new life – away from the classroom and onto the world stage – when Florida based contact invited Deb to join her online magazine as a reviewer and photographer the year after she stopped teaching. “I jumped at the chance as this gave me an outlet to share my

At the beginning of March this year, Deb Kloeden was doing what she loves – capturing the action and essence of a live music festival. The former teacher was photographing WOMADelaide, the iconic open air festival set in Adelaide’s stunning Botanic Park that features music, arts and dance from across the world, and the comparable festival in New Zealand. Little did she know both her passions would soon be off the table as an option – travel and live music photography.

“…I had little experience of photography apart from taking holiday snaps…” “I was incredibly lucky to shoot both the WOMADelaide festival and WOMAD NZ on the last two weekends before events were cancelled,” Deb said. “I love my new life and can’t wait to get back into it. I’m really missing my gigs during this pandemic lockdown and fear it will be quite some time before large public events can resume.” The Naracoorte based photographer has always had a passion for cameras and taking that perfect shot but it

work and legitimacy in applying for photo passes,” Deb said. “Although I’d never written a music review before, I fell into it easily and have even interviewed many prominent musicians via phone chat. I now also work for an Australian media magazine, usually as a photographer and the rest is history.” So Deb embarked on a career that combines all her loves – travel, music and photography – setting her new challenges and widening her horizons. The majority of her work is in Adelaide and Melbourne but with a growing portfolio that includes everything from up and coming acts in small pub venues to the international acts, she has certainly racked up the kilometres. “I choose the concerts and festivals I wish to shoot and most of the time that works out,” Deb said. “Often a support band or artist will make me sit up and take notice, so I go

“…I knew exactly what I was going to do, I wanted to be in the photo pit but wasn’t sure how to get there…” out of my way to follow and support them. I enjoy travelling and regularly visit northern New South Wales for Bluesfest and Splendour In The Grass. I have photographed bands and festivals in New Zealand and also in Europe when I travel further afield.” There’s no doubt the classroom had its challenges but so does getting that perfect shot of a performer, starting with jostling for a good spot from which to ply your trade, trying to move if possible to change up your angle, the different lighting and the constant movement but that’s all part of the fun. “When taking concert photos I think about composition, expression, the mood of the music and of course, the lighting,” Deb said. “I try to capture a feel for the music, the energy created in a concert, special moments and try to use the lighting to create my own art works. I really enjoy the editing process and marvel at how I can rescue an over-exposed or underexposed shot using Lightroom. My style tends to be strong contrast and vibrant colour.” Having to travel significant distances to hone her craft is another of the obstacles and it was last year’s One Night Stand in Lucindale that provided her with the closest to home event she has ever had the pleasure of capturing. The first concert she every photographed was back when she was still training to be an art teacher – a Split Enz gig. “I borrowed a large lens from the photography department and still have those negatives today,” she said.


And when she moved to the Limestone Coast in the late 1970s to establish her teaching career, she continued to pursue music photography whenever possible. “I became friends with many of

“…I try to capture a feel for the music, the energy created in a concert…” the local musicians and would photograph their shows and practice sessions, print merch T-shirts and help them book venues for shows,” Deb said. Years went by though as Deb focussed on teaching but the advent of digital photography saw her reacquaint herself with live music photography, investing in equipment and taking the first steps towards what is now her career. “My entry level DSLR was quickly replaced with a full frame professional camera, which I still use today,” she said. “Bluesfest was one festival that allowed patrons to bring professional cameras to their events so this is one place where I started taking good quality photos from the crowd that even the bands started noticing and sharing. I also approached the Adelaide music venue The Gov asking if I could bring my camera to shows that I had purchased tickets for and they often they gave me approval.” Deb discovered photography when she was training to be a Fine Art teacher in the 1970s – she took it as a subject despite having next to no experience with cameras.

“…I jumped at the chance as this gave me an outlet to share my work…” “I had little experience of photography apart from taking holiday snaps with a basic Kodak Instamatic Camera,” she said. “Learning photography back then introduced me to 35mm SLR cameras and developing film and photos in the darkroom, which was a wonderful, magical experience. I learnt how to print both black and white and colour photos as well as experimenting with Super 8 movies. Learning photography from an Art perspective allowed me to experiment with all sorts of techniques like solarisation, tone dropouts and photographic silkscreen printing. It was a wonderful starting point and I still draw from that knowledge today.” Photography was not even offered in schools when Deb first entered a classroom but that time did come, during her stint at Naracoorte High School and then Deb felt a little like a student herself at times. “In order to teach successfully, you really need to know your stuff and be at least one step ahead of the kids,” Deb said. “I taught analogue

photography right up until 2010 and when digital photography was developed, I embraced the new technology whole-heartedly and converted my darkroom knowledge into digital techniques. I found you could replicate many of the magical darkroom techniques in digital form. Through teaching I was always trying to push my students to new levels of learning. As my skills improved, my expectations of learning outcomes for my students also grew. I always used my own photo examples to inspire my students. They could feel or sense my passion and many said this really inspired them.” Deb is part of the Naracoorte Camera Club, Captured Images, and often heads to Mount Gambier for gigs and festivals. “I think it is important to give back to your own community”

Swapping the saxophone for a Mount Gambier’s City Band Hall is normally filled with the strains of anything from Mozart to Gershwin to everything in between but in recent weeks it has been the sounds of sledge hammers that have become the norm as local music groups that call the hall home get stuck into a renovation that has been on the to-do list for the past 12 months. A new kitchen and bathrooms had been redeveloped leaving the rest of the hall, which is more than five decades old, in dire need of a makeover and the cancellation of rehearsals provided the window of opportunity required. Committee member Faith Monger, who would normally be plying her trade as a saxophonist during her time at the hall, decided to bite the bullet and get the much needed renovations underway. “We had been talking about renovations for a year,� Faith said. “So we decided to just get in there and do it.� So for Faith, father Frank and mother Raelene, the overhaul has become a family affair, with up to 15 other volunteers and tradesmen having also lent a hand over the past few weeks, as the City Band Hall has resembled The Block more than The Voice. “We have pulled out sinks, knocked down walls, gutted the old men’s and

women’s toilets and started painting,� Faith said. Frank and Faith have been the brawn of the operation, while Raelene has provided the decorating advice. Limestone Coast Symphony Orchestra’s Jennie Matthews is thrilled the project has now taken shape, which will leave its three tenant groups – the Mount Gambier City Band, the Mount Gambier Concert Band and the orchestra – with a stunning new space once rehearsals recommence, as well as a wonderful asset to generate income. “We had done a few jobs last year but there was still a lot that needed fixing and once the music making stopped we had time to work on the property,� Jennie said. “Last year’s renovations also meant we needed new storage spaces and it is great that we are able to work on that, using the old toilets space to store uniforms, props and other equipment.� Jennie was quick to acknowledge the hard work from Faith Monger and her family in getting the job well underway, with just some plastering and painting to complete the majority of the works. “Faith Monger is quite a special young woman who is a very hard worker,� Jennie said. “She has learnt that from both her parents. She is very

PHOTO COURTESY OF FRANK MONGER embedded in the local music scene and I am glad I convinced her to be on a committee.� Former band president, Craig Wood, who relocated to Casterton, had done a mountain of work tracking the band’s history and social history is also a passion for Frank Monger, so the renovations will also see Craig’s hard work in collating photographs, now displayed in a worthy manner. “The photos have been sitting around for a couple of years and we have cleaned them up and we will do

donations of $1000 have come from the hall’s music tenants, as well as a contribution from war veteran Jack Hopgood, have also helped finance the work. Jennie believes the new look hall, once completed, will provide a great space for school visits, especially considering the kitchen and bathroom facilities, as well as providing quality rehearsal space, with the tenants also looking to promote the space for workshops and training from the corporate sector and community.

a tasteful display in the foyer and then the rest of the photos will be displayed chronologically in the band room,� Jennie said. Fortunately the large size of the band hall has allowed about five people in the hall at any one time to work in different areas of the hall to get all the jobs done. The help of local tradesmen, including for plumbing, tiling, carpentry and plastering, some donating their time, has been pivotal in the renovation work, while

This year, more than ever, the Limestone Coast Volunteer Service wants to celebrate the almost one million volunteers we have here in South Australia, by colouring our communities red. During National Volunteer Week (May 18-24 May), they want to highlight all the amazing work of volunteers and with a special shout out to all the emergency and emergency recovery volunteers who were, and continue to offer support with the devastating bushfires and now n the current health crisis. Colour your Community Red will give everyone in the community a chance to thank volunteers and for volunteers to stand up and be proud to be a volunteer in their State or Territory. “We want everyone, right down the middle of Australia – from North to South of our state to be involved in this year’s campaign to acknowledge, thank and celebrate over one million volunteers,� Volunteering SA&NT CEO Evelyn O’Loughlin,said. "Colour Your Community Red will highlight the amazing work of volunteers . We are asking organisations and businesses to light up or decorate their buildings to ‘spread the red’ from May 18-24. Local government landmarks in this region have already committed to being part of the Colour Your Community Red campiagn. If you are a volunteer run organisation, a volunteer or anyone that supports volunteering, you can participate by tying something red out the front of your home. Tie a ribbon, scarf, table cloth or even a tea towel around your letterbox, fence or tree – take a picture or a video, post it on socials to show how great it is to be or know a volunteer. Businesses are also being encouraged to turn red as part of the campaign. Use the campaign hashtags (#SAvolunteer #colouryourcommunityred #NVW2020 #[insertyourpostocode]) including one with your postcode so we can see how far the celebrations go into our communities.


FULL(ER) HOUSE

Four sons might make for a full house for most people, but Mount Gambier couple Nicole and Ian decided more than six years ago they had love to share with more children in the Limestone Coast. As foster carers with ac.care, they have welcomed 16 children into their home for various periods of time. Now two young girls, aged 18 months and four, call their house a home and are in the couple’s longterm care. “It’s just nice to come home from work and feel you’re making a difference, but also seeing how kids

grow, develop and being a part of their life,” Ian said. “Being a foster carer does cost you - it costs you your time and energy, your love and compassion, but you just can’t place a value on the end result - it’s so fulfilling,” Nicole added, when reflecting on the opportunity for the girls to be raised in a safe and stable home. The two girls have been in the couple’s care from soon after birth. “With four boys, it’s been really cool to have two girls in our house now,” Ian said. “Just coming home and having these little kids race up to you

“...you just value that time you have with them and know you could be changing their lives...”

“...if you do have a spare room and a place in your heart where you can give a little bit more love, maybe it is for you - you can make a massive difference in a child’s life...” and want to see how your day was and those sort of things are nice that you sort of forget about when your kids get a bit older.” Despite the family growing to accommodate six children, Nicole said foster care had brought them all closer together. “Because of their experiences with children coming into our home, we’ve been able to have really open discussions with our boys about life and empathy,” Nicole said “The boys have been a big help to us and they just treat the girls like they are part of the family - they have so many laughs with them and they are absolutely adored.” Before taking the two girls into their long-term care, the couple welcomed foster children for a day or week through to a month or longer after becoming aware of the need for more foster carers in the region. “With each child, you just value that time you have with them and know you could be changing their lives, whether you’re just providing safety for a while or giving them some respite from issues in their own lives,” Ian said. But he said the couple was not alone

Ms McIlroy was speaking in the lead up to International Nurses Day on May 12, which this year celebrated 200 years since the birth of Florence Nightingale whose work in the Crimean war, where she highlighted the importance of hygiene, and in particular handwashing, remains the cornerstone of reducing mortality and spread of infections such as coronavirus. This year has been designated the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife by the World Health Organisation. “There’s a little bit of Florence in every one of us,” Ms McIlroy said. “If you read her story, her attributes are in most nurses. Nurses facilitate and contribute to change. Without nurses being proactive, innovative and working as team members, you don’t get new ideas and change.” She hopes the pandemic will result in lasting respect for nurses and other first responders. After 55 years in the profession, Ms McIlroy shows no sign of slowing down. “I love every minute of it,” she said. “You can see you’re making a

“...we should be thinking about the welfare of children in our community...” Despite their huge contribution to the lives of many children, Nicole dismissed suggestions they were “special people”. “We are just ordinary everyday Aussies,” she said. “We’ve had to look past ourselves, question ‘what’s the big picture?’ and try and put ourselves in place of the children to consider what they are thinking. Are they thinking ‘is there someone out there who will love me?’ As adults, we should be thinking about the welfare of children in our community.” With a growing number of young people in South Australia, including in the Limestone Coast, taken into state care and in need of foster placements, they urged other people to consider opening their hearts and homes to young people. “If you do have a spare room and

a place in your heart where you can give a little bit more love, maybe it is for you - you can make a massive difference in a child’s life,” Ian said. “It’s something that’s so needed in the community.” Nicole will feature in webinars being presented by ac.care this month to encourage anyone considering foster care to learn more about what is involved in joining the organisation’s network of carers. Visit accare.org.au to register or for more information. The foster care team can also be contacted on 1300 ACCARE (1300 22 22 73).

Honouring the Nightingale legacy Bev McIlroy has been a registered nurse for 55 years but she’s never worked at a time in history like this. Portland District Health’s (PDH) assistant director of nursing and after-hours coordinator is relishing the challenge and says it has strengthened her belief in the importance of health workers. “I’m glad I’m working when this once-in-a-lifetime event happened,” she said. “You can see all the changes that are going to happen as a result of this virus and from a healthcare perspective there will be some good positive changes.” Ms McIlroy has been impressed with how PDH and health authorities across Australia have responded. “I think we are managing it as well as anyone could have imagined,” she said. “At PDH we are reviewing it on a daily basis and we’re providing community support and now community testing. We are offering the community all the support that we can in this environment.”

facing challenges that came with foster care, thanks to the involvement of a broad care team. “There’s great support with ac.care and their staff share the journey with you, plus the Department for Child Protection has some amazing people - it’s really a team thing,” he said. However, Ian said considering whether to become a foster carer was still a big decision and one that should be discussed with all the family.

difference; it’s there in front of you. I always wanted to be a nurse; that’s all my mother thought I was going to be and I never had anything else in my mind.” She still enjoys the comradery and good feelings that come with helping people. “I’ve been fortunate in my whole career to be the recipient of excellent training,” she said. Ms McIlroy started at Western District Health Service in Hamilton under the guidance of educator Faye Gumley. “Anyone trained by Faye

would say we were so lucky. Even though she was only a few years older, she embodied education for nurses. She taught me it’s not just about basic nursing skills but lateral thinking. You learn how to think outside the square and recognise that there’s always an alternative.” Ms McIlroy also worked in midwifery in a Catholic hospital before joining PDH in 1971 where she has worked in several areas, including midwifery, drug and alcohol, palliative care and coordinating night shifts. Most changes during her 55-year career have led to improvements. “The introduction of tertiary training in the 1970s took us a long time to come to terms with, but now I can see the amazing value it added with the knowledge and skills of today’s nursing graduates,” Ms McIlroy said.

However, there’s still a need for “a bit of old school advice”, which has been an important part of her job for the past 25 years. “I have great respect for the nursing profession and how it has adapted to change over time. We used to have GPs on call 24 hours; today it’s very much team work between the doctors and nursing staff and allied specialists.” Ms McIlroy is proud of the healthcare provided by PDH. “We’re very proud of the health care we provide in our area; palliative care, chemotherapy, post-acute care, and dialysis have been introduced over the past 20 years to support the healthcare system. A lot of new things available for the patient makes a very busy health service.” Ms McIlroy has no plans to retire. “I’ll work for as long as it’s appropriate. I’ll have people tell me when it’s not and most importantly I can tell myself. “PDH, especially in the past 10 years, has become extremely relevant and held in high regard in the community and I still enjoy working here.”


LOCAL SPORT RUSH 2013

Want to make a bet..

Two-time Academy Award winner Ron Howard teams once again with two-time Academy Award nominated writer Peter Morgan on Rush, a spectacular bigscreen re-creation of the merciless and legendary 1970s Formula 1 rivalry between gifted English playboy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and his disciplined Austrian opponent, Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl). Set against the sexy, glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing in the 1970s, the film is based on the true story of a great sporting rivalry between the handsome English playboy James Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Austrian driver Niki Lauda. The story follows their distinctly different personal styles on and off the track, their loves and the astonishing 1976 season in which both drivers were willing to risk everything to become world champion in a sport with no margin for error: if you make a mistake, you die. Rush is not a perfect historical recreation of the Rush-Lauda story but for the most part captures the personalities and lifestyle1 of the two rivals, as well as the high octane energy of Formiula One and the dangers faced by drivers in the 1970s. Lauda’s famous fiery crash is the centrepiece of the movie, documenting his recovery and return to the sport.

Like you, I’m continuing to try to find ways to entertain myself. I have had very limited success, but this week I think I’ve found something that is quite a winner. While most of the world’s sporting competitions have been suspended until the situation improves, there are still the odd few things that are happening. Australian betting agencies have capitalised on this, after all, there’s no better time to prey on problem gamblers. With everyone unable to leave their houses and bereft of entertainment options, gambling is almost all we have. Now is also the perfect time to attract new people to throw away their money with little chance of success. That’s how I got hooked on gambling last week. Gambling makes things that otherwise would have had no entertainment value, suddenly riveting entertainment. Ordinarily I have no interest in watching the Ukrainian or Armenian table tennis cups, but if I’ve put two dollars on Irina Grushko to win the first game against Anna Krasilova in their upcoming grudge match in Ukraine, I will spend the next half an hour studying the form guide, Google translating the Ukrainian webpages into clumsy English to reassure myself that, “Grushko big tophand smash always come out firing in game one of tennis table bang bang.” Once I’d turned my two dollars into three dollars and twenty cents I started scouring the betting pages for my next can’t miss step on the way to becoming a millionaire. The logical next thing to gamble on was the Chinese Taipei Baseball match between the Chinatrust Brothers and the Fubon Guardians. Say what you want about Chinese Taipei, but Fubon is lovely at this time of the year. I just Googled Fubon and it’s actually a bank, not a city…I think. But a bank wouldn’t invest their money on something that won’t make money, so definitely worth investing two dollars of my earlier

winnings on a sure thing like this. A few hours later, I’ve turned that two dollars into three dollars and forty four cents, which takes my total up to four dollars and sixty four cents. The way these numbers are growing almost reminds me of the way the corona virus numbers spiralled across the world. I’m not looking to flatten the curve in this case though. What’s next? ’m no dinosaur so when I spot the eSports odds, I decide I’m going to make a big investment. Four dollars on Team Vitality to knock off the heavily favoured Ninjas In Pyjamas. My research indicated that one of the Ninjas had suffered a nasty thumb injury in their last match. He’d been rehabbing the injury with extensive physio all week but he was not at all back to full dexterity and that was going to make it difficult to have his usual control of the joystick (do they call them joysticks anymore?) Well my luck was going well because that four dollars turned into a nine dollar return, meaning I’d turned my initial two dollars into nine dollars and sixty four cents. I was picturing the Tansel family members coming out of the woodwork at this point to ask me to invest in their latest business scheme. “Not happening,” I imagined saying sternly. Clearly I was on a roll so I had to keep going. The Modus Icons Live Dart League caught my attention. I played it a bit safe with this one as I was a bit worried about the cagey veteran Wessel Nijman against upcoming youngster Paul Nicholson. My quick scan of recent matches seemed to indicate that Nijman had been drinking more than his average amount of pints during matches, possibly linked to the fact that his wife had recently been spending an unusual amount of time with an old high school boyfriend. Nonetheless Nijman pulled a gutsy comeback win out of the bag, turning the four dollars I put on him for the win into six dollars and twelve cents (eleven dollars and seventy six cents in total in my bank! Cha ching!) I don’t want to leave you with a sad ending, but unfortunately it all came crashing down when I found there was a whole range of markets dedicated to Scott Morrison. I got over confident on betting on him wearing a blue tie for his next press conference, costing me five dollars when he appeared wearing a lovely silver

SOUTH EAST FUNERAL SERVICES Leading professionals in Service and Care Our Philosophy is simple “Honesty and Integrity” We are at your service 24 hours a day every day of the year

number that was completely on point with his suit. Tony Abbott always used to wear blue. I should’ve known Morrison wouldn’t wear blue. I played it safe on my next two dollar bet regarding his first word at his next press conference, unsuccessfully guessing that he’d start with “good”. Surely he’d be polite and start with “good morning” or “good afternoon”. How was I to know that journalist Andrew Probyn would have spilled some of the tomato soup he had for lunch from the Parliament House cafeteria onto his crisp white shirt leading to Scomo starting with, “Hey Probester, might be time to start wearing a bib!” With only four dollars seventy six left to my name I went all in on the amount of times the great man would say “Australians” during his presser. It seemed obvious to me that he would say the word over twenty times. “My fellow Australians…” “Australians everywhere are hurting…” “Australians are appreciative of the way we’re managing this crisis…” I listened carefully, counting along until he reached twenty one right at the end of the conference. “You beauty,” I screamed as I started planning how I was going to spend my eight dollar eighty fortune. Imagine my shock when my account showed empty and indicated Mr Morrison had only said nineteen “Australians”. How could this be? I headed straight to the official transcripts and sure enough two of the “Australians” I’d counted were actually “Australia”. Needless to say, this isn’t the end for me as a gambler. I’ll head out and cash my bottles and cans in tomorrow, then see what the odds are on the Stupid Robot Fighting League, Slippery Stairs, and Cornholing from around the world. I’m sure I’ll be rich in no time. Email me at robbietansel@gmail.com if you’d like to have a bet with me on whether I’ll be rich from gambling soon or not.
