A new name but it’s business as usual

When you have already built up more than 130 years of history as a respected business there is no real need for a re-launch, but Viridian Mt Gambier is set to renamed Vivid Glass, Windows & Doors.

Building a PASSION (one brick at a time...) Picture your ultimate holiday. You know the scenario – if money was no object what would be your dream getaway? For many, it involves the sun, surf and cocktails, in an exotic location, of course. For others, it is major sporting events. And others imagine iconic locations – Machu Pichu. Mount Everest, Eiffel Tower, the list is endless. For Mount Gambier’s Emma Robinson it was last year – a visit to a town the size of Naracoorte – Billund, in Denmark. It was such a memorable trip, it almost eclipsed, Emma’s other milestone moments. The self-confessed LEGO aficionado was visiting the home of the humble toy brick.

“…it is a trip that I will remember forever…” “Our trip to Billund, Denmark, was one of the highlights of my life, after getting married and having my children of course,” Emma said. For a LEGO fan, visiting Billund is at the top of any bucket list, and Emma and her husband not only ticked that experience off their list but also secured a behind-the-scenes tour of the LEGO factory, which is an exclusive, lottery style opportunity. Billund is where Old Kirk Kristiansen, a carpenter and joiner, started a business in 1932, making stepladders, ironing boards, stools and wooden toys. In 1934, the business changed its name to LEGO. “We were fortunate to be accepted into a behind the scenes tour, where we were able to visit Old Kirk’s original house, which houses a historical collection of all things LEGO,” Emma said. “We also met the LEGO designers, who create the sets we buy, and it was a highlight walking around the LEGO factory.” And the visit only got better – the LEGO obsessed couple meeting Thomas Kristiansen, the great grandson of Old Kirk Kristiansen, and spending time at LEGO House, an amazing interactive LEGO experience that was created and run by LEGO. Proof this is a serious passion for LEGO, the Robinsons also stayed at the LEGO themed Legoland Castle Hotel. “That was amazing - it is a trip that I will remember forever,” Emma said. As with most people, Emma was first exposed to the wonder of LEGO during her childhood but her interest in the coloured bricks diminished until her true love affair with the time honoured children’s toy began. “When my son was around the age of five, we bought him a LEGO train set and I think we had more fun that

he did,” Emma said. But clearly it sparked something in Emma and as she looked to pack away her children’s LEGO once they had outgrown the hobby, that passion was renewed. “I started to sort the sets out, working out what was missing and I found this process very relaxing and really enjoyed sorting and building the sets,” Emma said. Trips to Brickvention, the largest LEGO fan event in Australia, which was a Robinson family tradition, also sparked Emma’s newfound love as she saw the stunning creations exhibited at the Melbourne event. “I was inspired to use my sons LEGO and create a layout for family and friends to enjoy,” Emma said. “In turn this gave me great enjoyment and the passion has grown from there.” That was about five years ago and Emma is now steeped in coloured bricks and the other accessories afforded a LEGO lover. “When I am building on my own, I love the way it relaxes me - it changes my focus,” Emma said. “However, the opposite can happen too, I get so involved with creating a model, display or mosaic that it brings me so much joy and excitement, especially when the item goes on display where it brings others joy. You could spend 12 hours setting a city and farm layout, be completely exhausted but when a child walks in, looks at the display and exclaims ‘wow, that is so cool’ that exhaustion instantly goes away.” It is the sharing of the passion that Emma enjoys most and that saw the creation of BrickGambier – this region’s very own version of Brickvention, and that saw the establishment of the Limestone Coast LEGO Users Group. “After the second BrickGambier it was obvious that there was a need for a group to be set up in the Limestone Coast,” she said. “The group is primarily for adult fans of LEGO and their families, and we currently have 25 members.” Of course, the past few months have been heaven for Emma – not only has there been more time for LEGO creations, courtesy of life in lockdown, but the most recent TV series of LEGO Masters was on our small screens. “I love seeing the challenges and what the contestants achieve, sometimes in a very short time,” Emma said of the TV phenomenon.

“…I love the way it relaxes me - it changes my focus…”

“There are many techniques that have been shared that I haven’t seen before. This season has been awesome, especially as I know five of the contestants.” And not only has she crossed paths with contestants of the show, through her extensive network, but she has also met Brickman and host Hamish Blake. That was at this year’s Brickvention where Emma had her Toy Story 4 mosaic on display.

“… we want to able to give people the opportunity to do things and BrickGambier gives them this opportunity…” “The Brickman commented he liked the piece,” Emma said, which was obviously a huge thrill. “Each year I create one main project to take to LEGO events throughout that year and all over South Australia and Victoria,” Emma said. “The main one I am focusing on now is a 20 Year Anniversary display for the theme Jack Stone.” You would have to be a genuine LEGO tragic to remember Jack Stone – a polarising innovation by LEGO but a favourite of Emma’s son so that is her pet project at the moment. But Emma’s most recent mosaic was one out of the box – a re-creation of the Mount Gambier High School logo. “In January I started working as a teacher at Mount Gambier High School and I decided to create something for them to display and after thinking about what I could do I decided to create the logo,” Emma said. “While I was constructing the mosaic after hours at home, I showed many of my colleagues what I was doing but I do not think they realised how big it was until I brought the completed mosaic into school.” The mosaic took approximately 40 hours over a few months to construct, which includes creating the image in specialist computer software, parts ordering and constructing the mosaic out of LEGO. At this stage Emma is contouring plans for this October’s BrickGambier, hopeful the event can go ahead at least in some form, in its traditional timeslot, the October Long Weekend. BrickGambier was crowned the Community Event of the Year at this year’s City of Mount Gambier Australia Day Awards. “I know I want to be able to get out and enjoy local community events again, and when the restrictions

are lifted, we want to able to give people the opportunity to do things and BrickGambier gives them this opportunity,” Emma said. “We were all incredible humbled to receive the Community Event of the Year Award on Australia Day this year from Mayor Lynette Martin, OAM, and want to honour that accolade by providing another great event.”


Airport upgrade fast tracked

Activity is ramping up at the Mount Gambier Regional Airport with final demolition of the terminal getting underway last week, along with the transition of passengers across to a temporary terminal. The $6million project is taking shape with installation of steel framework, skylight, roof and external stone façade, providing a glimpse into what will be a mode rn and welcoming airport to service the Limestone Coast region. With pasdeenger numbers low due to the current pandemic, Grant District Council has worked with the team at Kennett Builders and Ashley Halliday to bring forward the overall development program to ensure there is no lag between construction stages. It has seen subonctrators being able to continue the project uninterrupted. despite the need for a temporary terminal and baggage claim, the team from Aero Espresso have set up their coffee van in the area as well and hire car services being still available. Stage 1 of this build is expected to be completed by early July. CEO Darryl Whicker said that reviewing the upgrade timeline made sense. “Bringing the works schedule forward will benefit local employment and despite some juggling to set up the temporary terminal and redirect passengers, it ultimately means that we can keep momentum and work going during the winter weather and complete the project on schedule,” he said. While Member for Barker Tony Pasin saw the ability to move full steam haead with the airport upgrade was the silver lining for the disappointment of low passenger numbers. “The Morrison Government is investing $3.5 million in this project because not only it is creating construction jobs now, which is more important than ever during the economic downturn, but when complete it will offer a welcome to visitors of the Limestone Coasts we can all be proud of, just like this amazing region,” Mr Pasin said. “With overseas holidays off the table this year, I hope that we will see an increase in domestic tourists when travel within Australia resumes.” The Mount Gambier Regional Airport Upgrade is funded by the Australian Government through the Building Better Regions Fund in partnership with the South Australian State Government. The community is encouraged to keep update to on the Mount Gambier Regional Airport Project at yoursaydcg.com.au

A good author writes what they know and Maya Linnell knowns life in regional Australia. A former journalist in the Limestone Coast, her second novel is ready to launch as the best seeling author gives fans more of what they want. The highly anticipated follow up to Wildflower Ridge: a sparkling rural romance of changing relationships and family ties from Maya. It is pure escapism complete with on-farm family drama, a meddling

mother-in-law, home renovation laughs and a plot twist you won’t see coming. Between managing a bustling beauty salon, hectic volunteer commitments and the lion’s share of parenting two-year-old Claudia, Angie McIntyre barely has time to turn around. And with each passing month, she feels her relationship with fly-in, fly-out boyfriend Rob Jones slipping through her fingers. When Rob faces retrenchment, and the most fabulous fixer-upper comes onto the market, Angie knows this derelict weatherboard cottage will be the perfect project to draw their little family together. There’s just one catch - the 200acre property is right next door to Rob’s parents in South West Victoria. It doesn’t take long for rising tensions to set a wedge between the hard working couple. Angie and Rob have to find out the hard way whether their grand design will draw them closer together or be the very thing that tears them apart. Maya was recently shortlisted as the ARRA 2019 Favourite Australian Romance Author, Favourite Debut Author and Favourite Small Town Romance for her bestselling rural romance debut Wildflower Ridge.

Roadworks with a difference

NEWS

in brief

More than 600,000 plastic bags have been diverted from landfill as part of recent asphalt works in the Glenelg Shire. The Portland CBD asphalting resurfacing program saw upgrades to some of the shire’s highest traffic areas. The works provided a number of benefits not just in terms of maintenance, but environmentally, with the upgraded road surfaces made up of recycled plastic. In fact more than 2000 tonnes of PlastiPhalt has been laid - this is the equivalent of 645,000 plastic bags that would otherwise have gone into landfill, which have instead now been recycled and placed into the road.

Rebranding the new look airport As the Mount Gambier fregional Airport continues to undergo a major transformation, the facility has also unveiled a new logo to go with the new $6million dollar terminal. Created by local graphic designer Julia reader, the District Council of Grant has revealed the new logo, aimed at promoting and rebranding the Mount Gambier Regional Airport. CEO Darryl Whicker was thrilled with the final product, describing the new logo as contemporary and fresh, making a visual statement that signifies and encapsulates the essence of the Limestone Coast. “Having a strong brand to identify the airport is critical as the design of the new terminal has been well conceived to promote the Limestone Coast Region for tourism and economic growth as well encourage people to come and visit the terminal to have a coffee and enjoy the space,” he said. Over the past few months council

staff and elected members worked with the team from Ashley Halliday Architects and Kennett Builder’s to scope up a variety of designs, with the final design being agreed upon because of its emotional appeal, aesthetic values and contemporary colour palette. The new logo was developed in conjunction with Julia Reader Design and has been created to be abstract and bold. The shapes that overlap are loosely based on the shape of the Blue Lake. The white centre is reminiscent of the geology of the Limestone Coast region and a nod to the circular skylight feature within the terminal entrance. The green represents forestry and the expansive pastures of our agricultural land, the blue represents pristine waterways and coastlines while the red is a visual link to the terra rossa soil of our world-class wine regions.

Capturing our lives for future generations

“This is more than a logo, its iconic values are aligned to the things that set the Limestone Coast region apart from other regions; our geology, agriculture, waterways and soils “ Mr Whicker said. “The design creates a meaningful and long term legacy for the airport and the region.”” Stay up to date on the Mount Gambier Regional Airport Upgrade at https://yoursaydcg.com.au/airportredevelopment

and it has impacted us all differently but we’ve all had to adapt the way we live.” A photograph could be as simple as adaptive working, an empty building, closure signs, the triumphs of learning a new skill or honouring a birthday or special occasion to suit the circumstances. “A great example is the ANZAC Day commemoration where so many in our community paid their respects at dawn at the end of their driveway or solitary location,” Mrs Davidson said. “There are some great photographs and memories being spoken about and we want to collate and preserve them.” Schools are also encouraged to participate as a classroom activity or promoting as a home project. “In some circumstances this period has given people a challenge to be more creative in the way they’ve adapted their routines, but also being more creative in time spent with families,” The Riddoch and Main Corner coordinator Talie Teakle said.

Submissions will be collated into the history collection of the Mount Gambier Library, with a view to hosting an exhibition in future at The Riddoch and Main Corner Complex. “As a city it will be great to collate these unusual times into a collection of stories, memories and artwork to look back on,” Ms Teakle said.

then check out what might be possible through headspace, the non-profit organisation for youth mental health established by the Australian Government in 2006, and she started volunteering in earnest for the youth focussed organisation in Mount Gambier. “I really liked what headspace stood for and I am so glad I got involved with them,” Tessa said. “They are such incredible people. When they say they care about young people they really do and when they say they care about their volunteers, they do everything they can to help them and support them.” Tessa is a member of the Youth Ambassador Program for headspace Mount Gambier where she delivers peer education mental health awareness sessions to schools and community organisations. Her role has continued in these unusual times, with virtual sessions now the order of the day until face to face visits can resume. She works with both primary and high school students and has always worked in conjunction with Group Training Employment to talk to apprentices. “I talk about mental health, anxiety and depression and basically anything the school choose for us to talk about from the options we offer,” Tessa said. “The kids are really interested and want to understand and they ask a lot of questions.”

“…the kids are really interested and want to understand…”

For Tessa, her foray into volunteering, started just over two years ago when she wanted to shine a light on her condition – a diagnosis that took years – and how difficult living with a chronic illness can be. To help increase awareness and to raise some funds, Tessa and her mother Fiona Pulford hosted a screening of Unrest, a Sundance award-winning film by Jennifer Brea in March 2018, that tackles the issues of living with a debilitating lifelong illness. Tessa also opened herself up for Q&A after the screening and raised money for the Millions Missing Campaign. From there, she has been the face of chronic illness in this region, setting up a support group, the Chronic Illness Support Limestone Coast, which started in April 2018, and a

Wellness and Wellbeing Festival, as she uses what little energy she is afforded to make a difference. The support group now has more than 100 members and the festival has run for two years and could well become a permanent fixture on the health and wellbeing calendar.

“…when they say they care about young people they really do…” The festival, which was sponsored by TripleM in 2020, is a showcase of local businesses, products, and services who support physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing and includes workshops, presentations, activities and stalls. Her community activism saw her

And Tessa is not just a young voice tackling the issues of mental health but she was lived it, sharing a very personal story that saw her, then undiagnosed medical condition, mean she could barely make it through a day of school when she was in Year 9. She was losing weight and often could not stomach food and the side affects from the recommended medication were often worse than the symptons. There were visits to an Adelaide based paediatrician, return visits to GPs, a number of MRIs, homeopathy, salt therapy and a visit to a rheumatologist before the possibility of ME started to emerge as the leading contender in terms of a correct diagnosis. Once the ME diagnosis was confirmed, it at least gave Tessa some direction and a chance to start to work out how best to live with what is often a life sentence, with 25 percent of sufferers worldwide being housebound or confined to bed. Things as simple as noise and light can be an issue for ME sufferers and eventually Tessa, a gifted student, had to put her academic goals on ice. But she is not a quitter and does not need your pity, she has just had to find ways to manage her condition and still find a way to have meaningful contribution and that has led to her outstanding volunteer efforts that have seen her honoured earlier this

month with a Premier’s Certificate of Recognition for outstanding volunteer service and has been nominated for a Channel 7 Young Achiever Award in two categories - the Rural Doctor’s Workforce Agency Rural Health Award and the Santos Regional Service Award. That will be announced later this year and you can also vote for Tessa as the People’s Choice winner by heading to the 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards SA facebook page.

“…volunteering was a way I could be involved in something with the flexibility I need…” Tessa also recently received the International Day of People with Disabilities, Outstanding Achievement Award for her work across the Chronic Illness Support group and the Wellness & Wellbeing Festival. “When I left school, I wasn’t able to be involved in the community through work or study, that’s when I started the group and started with headspace,” Tessa said. “Volunteering was a way I could be involved in something with the flexibility I need.” Tessa had done some netball coaching and helped out with a Colour Run prior to really getting serious about volunteers and she hasn’t looked back since joining headspace, as well as exploring other volunteering opportunities, including volunteering at the Riddoch Art Gallery as part of last year’s Ancient Rome exhibition “The volunteering is now a major part of my life,” Tessa said. “It has opened up a huge amount of opportunities for me.” One of those opportunities was in February when she headed to Canberra, with Shanae Coppick, as part of the ABC Heywire Trailblazers program, promoting the Chronic Illness Support Group and the Wellness & Wellbeing Festival. And that experience has led to what she hopes will be her next major project, which will delve even deeper into educating kids about disability and mental health through simulation. “We are just putting together an application for some grant funding but I am really excited about being able to get something like this off the ground,” Tessa said. And while Tessa’s health sees volunteering as a wonderful option for her, she is also an advocate for everyone to get involved and says she is proof it can open up other doors. “I am a strong advocate for volunteering because I do believe it can lead to other opportunities,” she said. “You are not only doing good for the community and helping people but it is rewarding and does often open doors that might otherwise have been closed.” Don’t forget to vote for Tessa as the People’s Choice winner by heading to the 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards SA facebook page.

MEDITATION AS PART OF YOUR DAILY ROUTINE It is the same advice we give about getting into a good exercise routine - try to meditate first thing in the morning. That way you can be sure that it actually gets done and not bumped off the to-do list as the day gets more hectic. Plus, morning meditation can be a nice way to start the day — you’re refreshed, awake, and on track for a mindful day.

When Dylan McQueen sold more than 200 cinnamon scrolls at his first Mount Gambier Farmers Market, cleaning him out of his stock and forcing him into pack up early, it was safe to say he had created a product people wanted. When he dropped in a box of those handcrafted scrolls to the owners at Bay Blue Espresso Bar to congratulate them on opening their new business venture and they rang him an hour later to see if he would supply the popular coffee shop, it became even more apparent, his plans to focus on his passion – baking. “When I dropped them off, they asked if I made them and I said I was happy to supply them if that was what they wanted,” Dylan said “I never expected a call so soon.” It meant ScRoll Queen was not just born but off and running – officially becoming a business in October 2018. “The rest, as they

“…it was absolutely trial and error …” say, is history,” Dylan said. “Having the Farmers Market and Bay Blue and how successful they both were instrumental in building the brand awareness.” Like so many business ideas, ScRoll Queen was born because Dylan, who had noticed the surge in popularity in the Melbourne café scene of cinnamon scrolls, had not seen the delicious treats locally. “I had also heard of Cinnabon in America and I knew how successful they had been.” And so often when you talk to people who start their own enterprise, it has been a long held dream, no matter how supressed, and that was also the case for Dylan. “I had always wanted to start my own business but I honestly had no idea what I wanted to do.”

“…they both were instrumental in building the brand awareness…”

“… getting the balance right is pretty essential to doing it well…”

Perhaps the expression ‘you won’t work a day in your life if you are doing something you love’ started to influence Dylan and he turned to something he had loved since childhood. “I always loved baking from a young age but it was when I decided to use my wife’s brand new Kenwood kitchen mixer to whip up some scrolls it definitely set me on a path,” Dylan said. And just to clarify – the mixer was a gift his wife had requested but in the end, Dylan was the one that used it the most. “I actually made scrolls one weekend before I had even considered cooking being my new career path,” Dylan said. “I gave them out to friends and family and made them a few more times.” Needless to say the feedback was overwhelming and positive and suddenly the concept of ScRoll Queen was born. Dylan knew running a business was not just about his popular cinnamon scrolls but that he also needed to run the numbers and research just what is involved and he started studying business, not formally but by trawling YouTube, clicking his way around government websites and finding what every advice he could to set him on the right path to establishing a business. If there is one thing everyone knows about cinnamon scrolls, it is they have an amazing aroma – the sweet spice, the sugar, the butter and so Dylan tapped into that at the Farmers Market by ensuring he could have an oven on site and have the scrolls cooking as people were wandering the Cave Garden based stalls. “It was amazing to see people’s reaction,” Dylan said. “They would

head over from quite some distance away saying they could smell something cooking.” And while many of Dylan’s customer base would probably name the cinnamon scrolls as the original and the best, Dylan has branched out to create a raft of varieties, sweet and savoury, to add to his repertoire. “To start off I was just getting the cinnamon scrolls right – it was absolutely trial and error,” Dylan said. “It was about getting that right amount of cinnamon and getting the glaze exactly right. Cinnamon is such a strong flavour and if you use too much it is not nice on the palate so getting the balance right is pretty essential to doing it well.” And once he had it right he continued to roll out his sweet perfection but eventually he was ready to experiment and see what other scrolls he could create – enter the Tim Tam scroll, which again took some time to perfect as he incorporated crushed Tim Tams into the equation. And as the reputation of ScRoll Queen grew so did his customer base – not just his social media orders but also his commercial orders and he now also supplies Bricks & Mortar Coffee Co., Expresso Eatery and a Casterton based business, with talks in progress

with coffee shops in Coonawarra, Naracoorte and Kingston. With a growing customer base and a solid supply chain established it was time to open another chapter in the ScRoll Queen story – his own shopfront – and in March Dylan did just that. ScRoll Queen now calls the Badenoch Shopping Centre on Bay Road home and Dylan couldn’t be happier that he spent all that time growing up baking with his mum and developing a taste for desserts and experimenting with sweet food. “It is not just about a love of food, for me, it was the comfort of food,” Dylan said. “I find comfort and I also find it quite rewarding that people enjoy what I’ve made.” And what he has made is now a range of scrolls, including Apple Custard, Jalapeno & Cheese, Sweet Chilli, Mint Slice, Cheese & Chive, Ferrero Rocher and Basil Pesto, as well as offering frozen scrolls and a bake at home option.

Sheepvention Ram Sale to go online

In the Hamilton Pastoral and Agricultural Society’s 152 year history only World War II managed to stop their annual event. That was, until now. The Sheepvention committee was very disappointed to cancel this’ year’s expo and president Kathryn Robertson said they were extremely disappointed to inform the members, exhibitors, sponsors, suppliers and attendees that Sheepvention was ot mgoing ahead. Given the uncertainty in our current environment, it is impossible to continue planning for, and contributing financially to, an event that is unlikely to be held,” Ms Robertson said. The committee has since been looking at ways to combat the current situation and hold some aspects of the expo. “We have been able to innovate to offer an online ram sale,” Ms

Robertson said. “The sale is a huge part of Sheepvention and I am delighted to announce that entries are now open.” It will still be held on Tuesday, August 4, via the AuctionsPlus platform. “We hope our vendors will also get behind this sale method and make applications to enter.” Ms Robertson said. Last year, close to a million dollars in rams were sold in the Sheepvention sale. The highest priced ram sold for $35,000, and a private sale made $51,000. “It is an invaluable marketing opportunity for studs,” Ms Robertson said. Entry forms and details can be found at www.hamiltonshowgrounds. com.au or contact the showgrounds via email info@hamiltonshowgrounds. com.au or phone (03) 5572 2563 Entries close June 22.

Funding windfall for stunning beach

with local and visitors alike flocking all year round to enjoy all that the popular area has to offer. It is a major drawcard for tourism and plays a significant role in our strategic tourism goals, positioned centrally to entice travellers to continue, from the Great Ocean Road, along the Ship Wreck Coast or cross the South Australian border from the Limestone Coast. This funding package will ensure Cape Bridgewater’s role as a major tourist attraction is further strengthened, whilst protecting the natural assets for future generations. The improvements will provide greater vehicle mobility within the precinct, pedestrian access to the foreshore and beach and vital accessibility upgrades. The project has the potential to provide further economic benefits for the Shire, with an expected increase in visitor numbers and overnight stays, as well as creating further employment opportunities. With additional funding secured to develop our iconic Portland Foreshore and Local Port area, the future for the Glenelg Shire is looking bright.”

Cape Bridgewater’s profile as one of Australia’s most beautiful beaches is set to grow even further following a significant funding boost to the coastal area. The Glenelg Shire Council has secured $1.5 million for the implementation of the Cape Bridgewater Master Plan as part of the Victorian Government’s Building Works program. The funding will aim to protect the coastal environment, as well as enhancing tourism access, with improvements including beach reclamation, dune reinstatement and vegetation and improved access and connection points to the beach. Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said the funding announcement was a “landmark occasion” following years of ongoing advocacy. “It is an incredibly exciting moment for the Glenelg Shire community as we welcome $1.5 million worth of much needed improvements to Cape Bridgewater,” she said. “The coastal township comprises some of the most beautiful natural attractions in the country, arguably in the world,

Connecting Glenburnie

Live streaming race meetings are set to be a reality for the Borderline Speedway after the announcement last week of almost $700,000 in funding to tackle the major mobile phone black spot that has plagued the Glenburnie community. Stakeholders in the area – the Mount Gambier & District Saleyards, the Mount Gambier Karting Club, the Mount Gambier Racing Club and the speedway – have been campaigning for years to have their mobile coverage dead zone brought to life and the joint announcement from the South Australian Government, District Council of Grant and Telstra has been music to their ears. Borderline Speedway president Cary Jennings was thrilled to hear that the long standing issue was set to be rectified. “First and foremost it has been a safety issue for us – the officials need to be able to communicate with each other during a meeting and if there is an accident we need to call for help as quickly and reliably as possible,” Jennings said. “But people all over the world would love to be watching Borderline Speedway action live and now we will have the capability to do

Our speedway has attracted international drivers for years and now their fans will get to see what all the fuss is about as it is happening. We’ve been fighting for a long time to see this happen.” The Mount Gambier Karting Club also welcomed the long awaited funding. “For the Mount Gambier Karting Club and Glenburnie District this should be a much needed and welcomed addition to the area,” club president Jason Fewins said.

“With a history of limited phone signal available, and the lack of a stable internet line, our facility and presumably parts of the district have been left exposed and vulnerable to the need of a reliable form of external communications for quite some time.” Much like the speedway, it also opens up some of the other features on race day, as well as ensuring administering events will be more efficient. “Moving forward, the addition to the area will allow our members and local residents the security and knowledge of reliable access to emergency services should they be required, along with the ability for our club to potentially showcase our race meetings via live media platforms,

Member for Mount Gambier Troy Bell said improved mobile phone and data coverage at Glenburnie will be significant for the region and its residents. “The Mount Gambier & District Saleyards will be able to grow and provide live auctions and reliable “...mobile ph one coverage and connectivi ty is vital for peop le living in regional ar eas...

communications for buyers and sellers,” said Mr Bell. “The Glenburnie Racecourse and the Borderline Speedway will see major benefits for spectators and now be able to live stream events. “This is a significant project that I have lobbied the State Government for over an extended period of time and it is pleasing to be able to work with the Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development and the State Liberal Government.” Without this partnership project, this new mobile coverage may not have been possible...” Mark Bolton (Telstra) Glenburnie Primary School was also looking forward to reliable mobile phone coverage, following on from last year’s installation of high speed cable courtesy of the Education Department, which shored up the school’s internet service. Regional general manager for Telstra in South Australia Mark Bolton said keeping connected with family and friends is important for all Australians. “We rely on mobile connectivity more than ever before for making calls and accessing the internet,” Mr Bolton said. “In an emergency having mobile coverage and being able to make a call can make a huge difference for people living in regional areas. Telstra is pleased to partner with the State Government and the District Council of Grant to deliver mobile phone coverage for residents in the South East. Without this partnership project, this new mobile coverage may not have been possible.” The South Australian Mobile Phone Black Spot Fund has contributed to addressing 40 mobile phone black spot locations in regional South Australia. This outcome represents a total State Government investment of more than $7.5 million in mobile infrastructure in regional and remote South Australia from the $10 million Mobile Phone Black Spot Fund.


“…we are certainly glad we can provide a much needed service for our members again - it’s not perfect bit it’s a pretty good start…” Simon Brook (Squashbrook Fitness & Leisure)

“…we are more than ready to have the kids back in the studio…” Maria Slape (MJ Dance Studio)

s e c a p s y t p m e e r o No m The region’s dance schools and gyms had to think on their feet when forced to close their doors a few weeks ago. It saw the bricks and mortar style of operation and face to face teaching go by the wayside as the online world became the home of their classes. It was a challenging time but little did they know, the return to business would prove almost more difficult. “It’s been a trying week,” MJ Dance Studio director Maria Slape said, who was thrilled when the restrictions on face to face teaching at her studio were relaxed, but then had to re-evaluate again once the State Government clarified their original announcement and class sizes went from 20 to 10 in a heartbeat, making things more difficult. “After heading in once direction, we spent a whole day just changing everything and re-organising things but we will make it work.” While taking the studio’s dance classes online certainly kept the majority of her students connected and dancing, the desire to return to face to face, had only been getting stronger. “It was really cool to start off with but you really do feed off the kids and we are more than ready to have the kids back in the studio,” Maria said. That being said, there are aspects of the online delivery that Maria will look to continue with the guest artist workshop top of that list, with MJ students having enjoyed classes from alumni Symiko De Van Der Schueren, “...it has been challenging but we are looking forward to seeing our students again…” Maxine Lockwood (Maryke Dance Academy)

Cooper Terry, Maddy Macera and Euan Doidge, as well as respected Adelaide based teacher Jadey Roberts, who had visited the studio earlier in the year. The online space has also allowed students who have moved away to continue learning through MJ Dance Studio and that is another aspect of the new normal Maria is set to continue and even expand. “Going online certainly helped keep

the kids motivated but we are ready to get back into it in the studio,” Maria said. That will see Mount Gambier classes returning this week under the new guidelines with strict hygiene protocols in place. Hype Dance is also flinging open its doors this week – stepping out from in front of the camera and back to the front of a class. “We are excited for our students

“…we have honestly missed seeing everyone’s smiles…” Kim Cella (Hype Dance)

and know how much frustration they have experienced trying to learn dance combinations through a screen, not to mention the delay due to internet streaming which makes it quite difficult to grasp the timing with the music,” director Kim Cella said. “We have honestly missed seeing everyone’s smiles.” The Hype Dance founder said the online option had kept students dancing and connected with their friends and they would still look at offering that option. “We think going forward that we will continue to offer an online community class for potential students to try before engaging in a face to face class,” she said. But the return of face to face, even with the smaller class sizes, is great news for Kim and her staff. “The feedback from parents has been that a lot of students have struggled at home learning on their own, so the parents are really excited to see the kids get back to dance in their happy place.” Kim said. “The students have missed not only dancing with their friends but also the feeling of walking into the studio. I know that might sound silly but for a large number of students dance is the place they come to release stress and re-centre themselves.” Maxine Lockwood, of Maryke Dance Academy, also welcomed the chance to get back in the room with her students and is starting up her

lessons after the June Long Weekend. “We’ve been using facebook to stay in touch but nothing beats face to face teaching,” Maxine said. “We were also able to use official CSTD video classes and students have been working towards still completing their exams.” Celebrating her 35th anniversary this year, Maxine has her fingers crossed that the December concert will be able to go ahead. “It has been challenging but we are looking forward to seeing our students again.” Squashbrook Fitness & Leisure’s Simon Brook has also had a rollercoaster of a week as the fitness industry also found themselves dodging and weaving to get clarity around their return to business options. “We understand how difficult this has been for everyone and that things are changing all the time but we have just been looking for clarity on how we can get people back to our business,” Simon said. “We are certainly glad we can provide a much needed service for our members again – it’s not perfect bit it’s a pretty good start.” Simon and his team are certainly keen for face to face contact with members again and are committed to re-opening despite the tough restrictions. “There is nothing like the connection and impact you can have working out face to face and the variety you can offer and the equipment you can use,” Simon said.

Measure twice, cut once... We are living in unusual times. I saw a story this week of a plane flying from Germany to Italy which was unable to touch down in the land of pizza and pasta. It seems that no one had checked as to whether the airport they were flying to was actually open after being closed during the pandemic. The airport was unfortunately closed. I’m not sure about any of you but I would have thought that one key thing you need to do as a pilot is get the plane off the ground. Another key thing to do is to ensure you’ve

organised where you’re going to put the plane back on the ground. I’d describe that as a piloting fundamental. We all put a lot of trust in pilots. I think sometimes we have the impression that they’re a bit super human. After all, they are responsible for making a big chunk of metal leave the ground, fly kilometres into the air and travel vast distances at very high speed. It’s really quite remarkable what they do, but I think this shows that they’re not perfect. I’d like to share two completely true stories of my own experiences in planes over the years which I think go to show that we trust them too much. Many years ago, before 9/11, you could often watch the pilot and co-pilot at work at the controls of the plane. There wasn’t a locked door between the plane controls and the passengers. There was simply a curtain which may or may not have been shut. One night while flying between Mount Gambier and Adelaide I watched as the co-pilot pulled out a large piece of paper that looked a lot like a map. I’m still not sure why he needed a map. I’d assume that there’d be some sort of radar or computer system giving him bearings

Brendon Armitage is investing in the new Telstra Future Retail Environment store design, with the aim of creating brilliant experiences for customers in the Mount Gambier area. This work, aligned with Telstra’s evolving products and services, will bring to life an integrated physical and digital environment tailored for our different customer needs. The store opened in 2009, underwent a minor upgrade in 2011 but general manager Joe Dunning said it was now time to move into the future with a state-of-the-art experience for customers. “When Brendan (Armitage) took over in 2013 he committed to making sure the region had a local Telstra store to go to and he committed to that by

investing a great deal of money into the store,” Mr Dunning said. The Telstra Store Mt Gambier, once unveiled, will see an increase in the useable floor space and a new, completely updated retail store. The open layout will make it easier for customers to explore, discover, try, buy and be supported, all with an expert store team on hand, to provide the best possible personalised service. The new store will be open for trade on June 18 and will be an inviting space for the local customers to come and engage with Telstra Mt Gambier team, who are still open for business and trading during the refurbishment, so come in and see the team.

and direction, but I’m pretty sure he was looking at a map, like he wasn’t really sure where he needed to go. It then got better as he tilted his head a little and then proceeded to rotate the map one hundred and eighty degrees. Apparently he’d been holding the map up the wrong way. I’m reminded of it every time Donna navigates me through a capital city. I know there’s no road up there for them to fly, or direction signs, but it didn’t inspire any confidence. Story number two goes like this. While at university, I was flying home from Adelaide for a family celebration. One key part of this story is that it was at a time where sometimes the planes flying between Adelaide and Mount Gambier were so small that they only had about twelve seats, and if the plane was full one passenger would actually be seated next to the pilot. There wasn’t a co-pilot. On this night I was the lucky passenger sitting next to the pilot. The second key part of this story is that it was an era where our very own Mount Gambier Pioneers were flying three or four basketball players from Adelaide for each home game. They obviously had a game this weekend as these gentlemen were on the plane with me. As many of you would be

aware, basketballers are generally taller than average members of the community, and this was definitely the case here. The basketballers were ally seated behind me on the plane. It immediately became clear that leg room was at a premium and them having a bit more space was more important than me having any leg room. With this in mind, my seat was adjusted and pulled forward as far as possible. It was essentially the same as how you adjust the seats in your car. Keep in mind again that I was seated right up the front of the plane next to the pilot. Everything seemed to be going just fine as we headed skyward. That was until the pilot started banking the plane. You see there were controls in front of the passenger in the front seat (me) that were obviously attached to the pilot’s controls. As he was attempting to turn (is bank the word with planes?) the controls on my side were bumping on my knees, making it hard for him to point the plane in the direction he wanted to go.

“Can you get your knees out of the way please?” he politely asked me. Unfortunately there was very little I could do about my knees. Due to the basketballers, he’d moved my seat so far forward that my knees had been jammed up around my armpits wedging them up under the plane controls. Eventually I worked a way that I could wriggle my legs out of the road and we could all stay alive but it felt like touch and go for a little while to me. I think all of these stories support the fact that pilots are human too. We all make mistakes at our jobs and pilots are no different. The stakes are just a bit higher I guess. Send me an email at robbietansel@gmail.com if this has freaked you out a little bit about flying.

The Limestone Coast Football Association has a start date – one of the first winter sports in the region to lock in a 2020 season. CEO Eric Nieto said June 28 would see the commencement of the 2020 season and he was confident all partcipating clubs would field sides in every grade, with the exception of Portland, that will not be able to be part of this year’s competition due to the border restrictions. “Everyone else is keen to get going and clubs have started training under the current restrictions,� Nieto said. “Starting contact training this week will make all the easier because it has been difficult to run good sessions with the limited numbers and no contact. The players have not enjoyed it and the coaches have found it hard.� The CEO said the association was still waiting on finalised guidelines for getting up and running for 2020 but was confident they could work with Football South Australia and the State Government to ensure a safe return. “At the moment we understand we will be limited to 80 people at the venue so clubs will have to monitor that,� Nieto said. “The biggest challenge at this stage looks like being the changeover between games but we will work all that out. Clubs with second grounds will be able to have teams warm up on there and clubs will also have to limit who can come into the ground. We will probably look at starting games a bit earlier so we can accommodate that

break in play to move people in and out of our grounds. It won’t be easy but we will make it work.� Nieto (pictured inset) said the crowd restrictions would almost certainly mean clubs would run at a loss in 2020 but that the member clubs were fully aware thewy would take a hit if they returned to the park. In the unlikely event the border restrictions are relaxed and Portland is able to take its rightful place for the 2020 season, officials will be creating two draws. “We want to be ready just in case,� Nieto said.

Basketball still on hold Basketball Mount Gambier basketball development manager Matt Sutton (pictured right) is continuing to work through a possible return to action at Mount Gambier’s Icehouse but with hundreds of players limited to training at home, the current cap on participant numbers for anything indoors has the city’s basketball program remaining online at this stage. “The limits just make is really difficult to allow access as we would be leaving so many people out and denying so many kids the opportunity to return – I don’t know how you would choose,� Sutton said. Given the stadium is usually bursting at the seams every afternoon and night six days a week under normal circumstances, there is no way even the most innovative and dedicated administrator cold fashion a program that was inclusive of the huge basketball cohort in the city. “We are certainly working hard to get it up and running,� Sutton said. “Once we are comfortable with what we can provide and that it is quality and it is safe for everyone involved we will go ahead.� Keep up to date with the online training and any changes to the 2020 programs and seasons, head to the Basketball Mount Gambier facebook page.

When opportunity

KNOCKS Jenna with her father Brian (left) & as an 11 year old as a SAPSASA representative (below)

You will get opportunities eventually and then you have to make the most of them. Those are the words of Jenna McCormick. But while she could have said them quite recently as she tracks towards the postponed Olympics as a Matilda, they were actually her thoughts back in 2014 when the Mount Gambier born and bred sports star was breaking into the Lady Reds during her early years in the W-League. After debuting in the 2012/13 season and only securing a couple of opportunities on the bench, the disappointment of not earning significant game time and juggling her Year 12 studies, had Jenna plagued with doubts. But as she was to find out time and time again in her sporting career, things can turn on a dime and fast forward 12 months and she was crowned the Lady Reds best & fairest and elevated the leadership group, the only locally grown talent to be named. “In that first season I knew I probably wouldn’t get much of a run but it does diminish your confidence if you aren’t picked and you do need all the support you can get,” Jenna said. And she made that a priority in the 2014 season as she could tell the younger players that things can turn around. Somewhat ironically, Jenna forced her way into the Lady Reds line-up in a season where

the squad was stronger, there were international players brought into the fold and the recruiting had been as aggressive as it has been in the club’s W-League history. In reality before the season started and the 20 player squad was announced, Jenna wasn’t sure she would even earn a recall. “I didn’t expect to get in at all, I really doubted myself,” Jenna said. “But the coaches came to me and said they wanted to try me at centre back and everything worked out.” Indeed it did – it is centre back where McCormick has now represented her country on four occasions – a lifelong dream fulfilled, with the postponed 2020 Olympics still very much on her radar. “Breaking into the squad was a huge achievement for me,” Jenna told ABC Grandstand last month. “It’s something I’ve been dreaming about and working towards for a while now. I knew I wanted to get there but never really believed.” Of course, after the highs of debuting last November, Jenna has quickly found herself in the same position as all elite athletes around the world – training on her own. “The majority of the squad are in their home town or with family waiting it out,” Jenna said. And it has given her some rare quality time with her family, now located in Adelaide. “It has been quite a different two and a half, three months for me being back here. You have to be accountable to yourself. It’s been interesting and tough but you learn a lot about yourself.”

“…I will be 100 percent better prepared and in a really strong position to fight for a spot in the squad…” It would have been easy for Jenna to feel so close to representing her country at a major international tournament that this unexpected disruption to normal transmission would have been deflating – but this isn’t the first time in her career she has had to turn lemons into lemonade. “For me, this is a blessing in disguise,” she said. “It will give me another year at international level, get to tour with the team, more training camps where you are required to be 150 percent switched on and perform day in , day out, weeks on end. It will absolutely only benefit me and I can certainly see a positive out of this - I will be 100 percent better prepared and in a really strong position to fight for a spot in the squad.” Her Matildas selection also vindicated another huge decision Jenna made in her career – forgoing her other sporting pursuits to focus on the round ball. “If I am going to really give soccer a go, I probably have to put football on the backburner.” That is another of Jenna’s 2014 musings that was repeated again at the end of 2019. In 2014, that was her mantra as she looked to establish herself in the W-League and stints with Canberra United, a title win in the Icelandic league, nine games in Norway and gigs with Brisbane Roar and now Melbourne Victory, Jenna’s dedication was rewarded.

But the lure of Australian Rules football remained – the crossover of the seasons her biggest hurdle. But when AFLW was established the temptation was too great and with two premierships in three seasons, Jenna could not be happier to have climbed the mountain on the AFLW landscape before returning to her national soccer representation pathway. “AFL was something I always really loved and when it came around we were going to have a national league I couldn’t say no – it was an opportunity I could not pass up,” Jenna said. “Soccer was absolutely number one but I just didn’t think I was good enough to represent my country. That’s something I’ve learned over the last couple of years – how much I love soccer and how much I want to be there.” Her dedication now unquestioned, her loyalties now not divided. “I want to impress the coach, I want to impress my team mates, to gain the respect of them all and show then I could perform to that level 100 percent of the time.” For an athlete who has performed at the top level domestically in two sports, as well as a childhood in State and national representative teams, nothing prepared Jenna for the pressure of being an international. “I only realised when I got to the level that international level when there is pressure on every aspect of what you’re doing really affects you mentally,” Jenna said. “It was a really big learning curve for me to find out what pressure is. I thought I knew what pressure is but I really didn’t. I am learning how to handle it and I am really looking forward to the months ahead.”
