CARAVANS WANTED! Donehues Leisure Mt Gambier is desperately seeking more caravans to replace depleted stock due to recent sales. Do you have a caravan you know longer want or use?

Consider having the team at Donehues Leisure sell it for you!

Why Donehues Leisure? 1.

Convenience: Selling your caravan privately takes time and effort and could cost you money. You need to be available to show potential buyers your caravan when it suits them


No Direct Contact: You don’t need to be personally involved in any negotiations and possibly deal with potential buyers, that might have driven 100s of kilometres, getting aggressive if sale isn’t proceeding as hoped


Security: You don’t have strangers, some possibly with bad intentions, visiting your house and garage. Or unhappy purchasers returning after the sale if they find something wrong.


We can come to you: Our business sees us in towns throughout the Limestone Coast of SA and south west Victoria on a regular basis ….so we will be in your area soon! We can call and see you for a no obligation discussion on your caravan’s worth and take the caravan to our yard.


Cover - EMU Sportswear - Providing all your apparel needs He made his name as a dual championship player with the Mount Gambier Pioneers but former Townsville local Kurt Russell has spent the past nine years making his mark off the court in the realm of sportswear. Tapping into the more than 100 years experience of EMU Sportswear, an Australian owned company founded in Queensland in 1894, Kurt has been providing sportswear for a number of local clubs, as well as further afield. “Our product range includes competition wear, training wear and off-field leisure wear worn from the top flight teams right down to the juniors,” Kurt said. It was 12 months ago that Kurt formed an alliance with Rob Dowdy from Vitality PersonalTtraining Studio, creating a fitness and sports apparel hub in Mount Gambier – the first shopfront for EMU in South Australia. “We had been operating in South Australia for the previous eight years but the new partnership created a location that caters for our current customer’s needs but is also inviting to the wider community,” Kurt said. EMU is now in the hands of the fourth generation, still delivering the same quality and service on which the company was built. Every new team member that comes on board is trained to deliver the same great results, whether it is during early conversations or as a long standing partner and EMU

holds a deep understanding of current trends, classic designs and know when and how to push the boundaries. When it comes to ordering, EMU Mount Gambier is equipped with trained in house professionals that can bring any design to life, while there is also the option to ‘design your own’ apparel through the Kitbuilder feature on the website, where you can create your own designs, customise colours, add sponsor logos and place an order right there and then. The beauty of dealing with Kurt is that sport is in his DNA and he has competed at elite level, been a key mover and shaker in community sport and now has children in the sporting arena that gives him a great understanding of every level of a

Forestry sector puts forward future vision

Taking care of the elderly & keeping them safe

Helping our seniors get tech savvy

The popular Tech Savvy Seniors Program is back at the Naracoorte Library. The free and fun technology training sessions for seniors will be held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays this month. The sessions will be held at 10am and bookings are essential as class sizes are limited. Session topics will cover basic introductions to Android phones and tablets, Apple iPads and iPhones, the Internet, online safety, Paypal, online shopping, apps on devices (including the Libraries SA app), Facebook, e-books and audiobooks. To register for a session, contact the library on (08)8762 2338. For more information on the services available at the library, go to the Naracoorte Lucindale Council website.

The Green Triangle forestry sector took advantage of the recent visit from the South Australian Labor Shadow Cabinet to present their vision for the industry moving forward. Key stakeholders met with Labor leader Peter Malinauskas, deputy leader and Shadow Minister for Environment and Water Susan Close, Shadow Treasurer Stephen Mullighan and Limestone Coast-based Shadow Forestry Minister Clare Scriven and ilicited a commitment from the State Opposition to work with the forestry sector to realise new investment and growth opportunities following a Limestone Coast fact finding mission. The meetings included a roundtable session hosted by the Green Triangle Forest Industries Hub following a local forest and mill tour. Participants included representation from the full breadth of the supply chain including nursery, forest, silviculture, harvest and haulage and milling. The meeting

highlighted the hub’s long-term strategic objectives, which aim to increase the plantation estate by up to 200 million trees to meet growing domestic demand in coming decades. “Achieving this plan means access to water – it is the lever to enable all growth across the Green Triangle,” GTFIH acting chair Ian McDonnell said. “The Hub presented its proposal for a water plan which will explore forestry water use and identify realistic strategies to stop water wastage by utilising water from the drainage network.” Above - Shadow Treasurer Stephen Mullighan, Shadow Forestry Minister Clare Scriven, Deputy Leader & Shadow Minister for Environment & Water Susan Close, host NF McDonnell and Sons director & acting GTFIH chair Ian McDonnell & Party Leader Peter Malinauskas.

Sally O’Connor turns 70 this month and with a celebration with family and friends impossible, she will still enjoy a celebration of sorts as she unveils her first ever solo exhibition this weekend.


ally dipped her toe in the water with art a couple of times but it was the third time that was the charm and she hasn’t looked back. “I’ve always loved art but I didn’t have the time or was steered in another direction which was fine,” Sally said. It was in the mid-1980s when she took three months long service leave from her teaching role that she used the time to pursue her artistic ambitions, taking art classes at TAFE, when it called Wehl Street home, with Bev Puckridge and Chris Marks. “Those classes blew me away,” Sally said. “But I still didn’t have the time to commit to it.” Sally returned to classes in the early 2000s, starting a Cert IV at the Wireless Road TAFE campus with Deb Rogers and Ann Carpenter as her mentors. “That was also fantastic but again I parked it,” she said. That was until she retired but by that time there was no official art classes at TAFE and Sally feared she may have missed her chance. Enter her former TAFE mentor Deb Rogers, who was running the Artsparks Art Therapy Group, and Sally had her classes and the opportunity to spread her artistic wings. “That was so great,” Sally said. “Deb is so encouraging, which is wonderful. If someone is encouraging and likes some of your work it gives you all the strength, the will to try and pursue it further and to have a go and to see what you can produce.” Despite the false starts on her own artistic career over the past three decades, art has always been a part of Sally’s life and collecting has bee one of her passions. With family in Hong Kong – Kait and Dean Aslin – that has been a regular stop on Sally’s art calendar. “My first visit anywhere we travel has always been the galleries to see what’s around,” Sally said. “And with Kait and Dean in Hong Kong it has been an enormous influence for me. We have visited all the galleries in Hong Kong and they have a fabulous affordable art fair that’ve I’ve been to about four times. It gives you a huge range of art from all over the world, from different genres, different styles and I find it very exciting.” Sally looks to devote some time every day to her art but admits it doesn’t pan

out like that. “I love cooking too and before you know it, the day is gone,” Sally said. “But I am thinking about art all the time.” Being part of Thumb Print Workshop, an art collective, has helped with that, in terms of regular exhibitions with themes. “Having a theme gives you a focus,” Sally said. “It is fun and some of the work you produce is not necessarily the style your normally do or what you thought would come out but you let things develop and see what happened.” Sally’s inspiration for her work ranges from the waterscapes of Hong Kong to her family farm, now run by her brother, from a waratah bush in her own garden, to Kait’s photos from a visit to a Paris market. She takes those inspirations and translates those images into her own semi-abstract style. “I think that’s my forte and certainly what I enjoy the most,” Sally said. Print making has become a passion for Sally, She started with drypoint printing and moved to lino cut and how favours wood block printing. She initially started with the Japanese ply Shina and now works with Huon pine, with husband Leigh, preparing the blocks for her work.

“Print making has been really fun,” Sally said. “The carving itself is quite therapeutic. The time just flies by and then when you print from it you can change your colours and all that sort of thing. You never quite know what it’s going to be when you pull it back.” And that is even truer for Sally who loves employing overprinting as one of her favoured techniques. Life drawing is also one of Sally’s favourite artistic past times, again working in her semi-abstract style. She has taken advantage of online life drawing classes during this current health crisis, taking advantage of the Melbourne based Last Peek Life Drawing and the Riddoch Art Gallery online life drawing opportunities. Sally has a stunning space to work

Black and white fish on red by Sally O’Connor at home, above her husband’s workshop, and he has crafted her a stunning cabinet to store paper, paints and set up her computer when required. “It’s a beautiful room we used for entertaining but I have taken it over,” Sally said. “I love it because I can leave my work there and some and go as a I please.” Sally has exhibited her work regularly since 2017 through Thumb Print Workshop exhibition, local wineries, part of Gallery 54 exhibitions and a range of competitions but as her 70th birthday approaches, this is her first solo exhibition and she can’t wait. “It is really exciting for me that I’m able to do this and the interest I have had so far has been overwhelming. To be able to exhibit in Gallery 54 – I didn’t think I would ever be doing that, could not have dreamed this would happen.” This Sunday’s solo exhibition opening, as part of South Australian Living Artist (SALA) festival, is a far cry from Sally’s former life as a science and maths school teacher in Millicent and Allendale East and then managing O’Connor Airlines maintenance division, but it is a chapter of her life that has finally been written – 30 years after she first dabbled in art classes. The exhibition is a retrospective featuring Sally’s printmaking, drawings and watercolours and includes work from the past five years – most of it having never seen the light of day and a few pieces from previous exhibitions. The public is invited to join Sally at Gallery 54, 54 Church Street, Penola this Sunday, at 1.30pm, for the official opening and artist talk and her work will be on display until Monday, September 28. and all works will be for sale.

The Glenelg Aboriginal Partnership has been recognised as an outstanding community collaboration after being shortlisted for a national local government award. The Glenelg Aboriginal Partnership, comprising representatives from Winda- Mara Aboriginal Corporation, Dhauwurd-Wurrung Elderly and Community Health Service (DWECH), Gunditj Mirring Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation and the Glenelg Shire Council, has been announced as one of nine category winners of the 2020 National Awards for Local Government The Partnership has been particularly recognised for the 2019 National Reconciliation Week celebrations, which saw a number of innovative and inclusive events held to strengthen and value local Indigenous heritage. Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said it was a fantastic achievement for the Partnership group.“In 2019 our Reconciliation Week saw three local Indigenous corporations and Council, through the Glenelg Aboriginal Partnership, come together to celebrate Gunditjmara people, Country and Culture,” she said. “The first element of these celebrations was a joint Citizenship Ceremony held on Country at Budj Bim, with new citizens being formally welcomed by both Traditional Owners of the Land and elected members. This was the first time a Citizenship Ceremony had been held on Country and marked a significant milestone for our community. Following this ceremony, the Big Picture Project was launched, a joint project between DWECH and Council, but led by local emerging leaders. The Big Picture was a collection of five larger than life images installed as temporary public art pieces, profiling five Indigenous Youth. These images shared a profile written by each young person, including their hopes for Reconciliation and why it is important to them. This was an incredibly important moment for our emerging young leaders to speak about their culture publically, and to share these powerful stories with the community. The success of these events and projects can be attributed solely to the strength of the Partnership Group, and the collaborative approach between all three Aboriginal Partners organisations and the Glenelg Shire” The 2020 National Awards for Local Government award winners will be announced later in the year.

Dear Robbie 45... I got an email this week. I thought I’d share it with you because I’m running out of things to write about. There’s not much to talk about these days. Certainly nothing much that’s funny. Anyway, here goes. “Dear Robbie, My daughter was doing the Lifestyle1 sudoku this week. After quite a bit of effort she threw the pen on the ground and stormed off. I concluded that education just isn’t the same these days. My daughter is on her second university degree and she can’t even solve a sudoku. I decided to give it a go. In fact I gave it four goes, with no luck. I’m pretty handy on the old sudoku so I was a little surprised. I decided to do the unthinkable and have a look at the answers. It was a pretty fair dent to my self-esteem. You’ll just have to imagine the mixed emotions when I saw that two of the original numbers from the puzzle had been reversed in the answer. I was happy that it wasn’t my fault that I couldn’t solve the puzzle, but angry that I’d spent that time on the puzzle and it was a waste of time because it couldn’t be solved. The puzzle couldn’t be solved because they’d stuffed it up. Could you please pass on my irritation. James from Jamestown.” Hopefully you all know what a sudoku is so I don’t have to explain it. One of the reasons I don’t want to explain it is I don’t really get it. As I understand it, there are lots of squares and lots of numbers and then some gaps. The aim of the game is to fill the gaps with other numbers. I think you work out the missing numbers by finding the square root of

the total of all of the other numbers. And then carry the four. I just threw a few random Maths words I knew into a sentence together. You probably worked that out by yourself. There are 6,670,903,752,021,072,936,960 different possible arrangements of the numbers in a sudoku. To work out which one of those 6,670,903,752,021,072,936,960 possibilities is the one in front of you seems like asking a bit much to me. When there are 6,670,903,752,021,072,936,960 different ways to answer it, and they’re expecting me to find the one correct one, they’re asking for miracles. Just to be clear, that number is over six sextillion. You’ve got a one in sextillion chance of winning the sudoku if I understand Maths which it seems I clearly do. You’ve got a better chance of winning cross lotto (about one in 45 million), and you can’t win twenty million dollars on sudoku. In fact, the most prestigious prize you’ll ever win on sudokus is at the World Puzzle Federation World Sudoku Championships.That prize is a trophy, a book voucher and an art set containing water colours and fancy pencils. While I don’t know how to do sudokus, I do share in your frustration with being let down like this though James. It’s always very annoying when you put your time and effort into something and then someone else stuffs it up for you (it’s like how

we put all that effort into social isolation and staying indoors and shutting businesses down and then Melburnians are idiots). Rest assured James, I’ll be throwing my ample weight around at the Lifestyle1 offices this week until someone is fired. It’s simply not good enough. Having said all that James, I’m not convinced that doing sudokus is the best use of your time. I know we’re all a little restricted in our lives now, but there’s got to be something else you can do. Have you checked on the length of your toenails? Got any dishes that need doing? Find a new hobby? Stamp collecting? Here’s a suggestion for you, Jim. Can I call you Jim? I reckon you’d be better off collecting broken down old Ford motor cars, and setting them up in a three by three square in your backyard. Let’s put this whole sudoku thing aside for a minute, Jim, because clearly this was a half baked premise and it hasn’t really gone anywhere. But let’s use it as a jumping off point to make a point. Here’s a point. If we can’t trust people to make a sudoku and not reverse the numbers, what makes us think we can trust people to follow the quarantine and social distancing rules and expectations? Bloody, stupid Melburnians. Email me at robbietansel@gmail. com if you’ve ever solved a sudoku.

Have your say on new office location Following a decision to consult the community at the July meeting, Wattle Range Council is seeking feedback on the preferred siting of a proposed new principal office. Four designated site options have been proposed with the community being given a fifth option to suggest an alternative location. A community survey is now available. The four designated sites are: Site 1 – Former Netball Courts (corner of Williams Road & North Terrace); Site 2 – Apex Park (corner of George Street & Adelaide Road); Site 3 – Jubilee Park (North Terrace); Site 4 – Re-develop Existing Office Site (George Street). Council would also like to hear from the community to see if there are any other sites that should be considered – taking the preferred selection criteria into consideration that relate to ownership, ease of build and service connections. You are all encouraged to have your say. Please visit the website at and follow the link to the online survey or collect a survey form from any of council’s offices or the Millicent Library.

Run Against Violence - 2017

“My greatest motivation is to prove to my kids that I can do anything I put my mind to. To prove to myself that I’m still here, that I am me. I am no longer a victim but a human being striving to live my best life.” They are the words of Riana - a domestic violence survivor who is set to be part of the Run Against Violence (RAV) in the Limestone Coast for the second successive year. “I joined RAV so that neither of my kids will ever have to experience what I did,” Riana said.

Riana is captaining the S.W.A.T.T. (Sprinting, Walking and Trash Talking) team this year. She grew up around family violence as a child, as well as experiencing domestic violence from an ex-partner. “What was important from last year was knowing I wasn’t alone, knowing I had the support of the whole team behind me pushing me to achieve more,” Riana said. The Run Against Violence is a virtual team challenge, which is heading into its third edition, and the Limestone Coast has participated every year. Run Against Violence (RAV) is a volunteer organisation that encourages people to remove those social barriers through starting constructive and inclusive conversations. RAV supports that process through delivering awareness campaigns, community activities and sharing stories. Runners and walkers from around Australia and the world will participate in the third edition of the Broken Hill to Sydney Virtual Team Challenge starting on August 30. During this unique challenge, participants walk or run in their local area and then upload their distances

to a website. Their data is aggregated with that of their fellow team members and participants then watch their team track across a map from Broken Hill to Sydney. To be successful, the team is required to cover 1300km in the 19 days of the challenge. Belinda Seaman has coordinated the teams from throughout the Limestone Coast for the past three years. “This year we have our largest contingent of runners, with three teams and 32 members so farm” she said. “But there’s always room for more. Run Against Violence is a wonderful organisation that provides communities with tools to take a stand against domestic and family violence from within their own communities. We are all proud to be running again this year.” The virtual challenge retraces the real-world route of the Steps Together Ultra Marathon, which Run Against Violence co-founder Kirrily Dear ran in 2017.

Family violence is a big problem in our local communities. It is estimated that 1.6 million Australians experience physical abuse before the age of 15*. RAV aims to use running to engage communities in family violence prevention - to use running to start conversations, share knowledge and create a safer community. “Through my involvement with RAV, I have made many new friends,” Belinda said. “I have heard personal accounts of family violence from new friends and old. Our team grows every year, with more people looking to take a stand. Some have personal experience with family violence. Others have an indirect association. Others simply see this as a

way to do their bit to help.” For another Limestone Coast based survivor, her first RAV this year is as personal as it gets. She has been going through her own family violence journey, but now feels more settled in herself and ready to tell her story and take a stand against domestic and family violence. She tells a story all too familiar. She suffered mental and physical abuse from her intimate partner for years, bringing her to the point of contemplating suicide. After nearly being killed, she ran to her neighbours at 2am in the morning in just her pyjamas. This was her wake up call. That night, she made the decision to leave. From that moment on she started mentally and emotionally distancing herself from him. It took three years from that decision to physically leave, but she did. She took part in the Small Steps for Hannah virtual run and it really touched a nerve. “It was my second wake up call, inspiring me to reach out to other victims,” she said. Since leaving she has helped two people by telling her story and giving her support. She hopes that by taking part in RAV and telling her story, she will inspire others to leave a dangerous situation and give themselves a fresh start.

“Every time the going gets tough, we remember that every step of our journey is for a person experiencing family violence,” Belinda said. “Every step is worth it, no matter how much it hurts.”

Belinda has heard so many stories that she is never short for inspiration and motivation when organising and participating in the Run Against Violence. “One story which will stay with me forever is from a young local woman who is lucky to be alive today, with her son by her side,” Belinda said. “Cathy’s story begins at the age of just 14 when she fell in love – or so she thought. Her mistake nearly cost her her life, plus that of her unborn son. The man in question was 10 years older than her. She ran away from home to live with him. He took her interstate, far from her family and friends, living on the streets and in temporary accommodation. Cathy was beaten, strangled and verbally abused daily. He manipulated her to believe that her own family were against her, so she had no one to talk to and nowhere to go. But he said he loved her, so she thought

everything was ok.” While Cathy lived with this man, he took drugs and drank copious amounts of alcohol. At the age of just 17, she fell pregnant . She was lonely and scared but overjoyed to be pregnant. Until the reality hit. How could she raise a baby here, in a home filled with abuse and neglect? In a caravan park crowded with bikies and drug dealers? Depression hit her hard, she had no confidence that she would survive to see her baby born. When Cathy was eight months pregnant she threatened to leave him, which made him extremely angry. She was almost killed when someone intervened and gave her an opportunity to escape. She crawled out of the caravan and continued down the driveway until she recovered enough to get up and run. She hid on the side of the road and waited for help to come, but it didn’t. So she walked and walked, with only the clothes on her back, to a police station and fell to the ground exhausted. Here her story started to turn around. Cathy’s mother was contacted, and once she was released from hospital she returned with her to their home in South Australia. Mentally and physically she had a long way to go in her journey, and in some ways her journey is continuing to this day. However she has a good relationship with her family, her child, a new partner who treats her right and supportive friends. “If this experience has taught me anything, it has shown me that there is help all around us,” Cathy said. “Whether it is a supermarket, a chemist, a police station, a hospital, a random stranger’s house. There is always going to be someone who can help you if you reach out.” *Sourced from ABS Personal Safety Survey 2016.

STARTING A WORKOUT ROUTINE Do workouts you actually like— you’re more likely to stick with it. Find something you enjoy and focus on small, incremental progress each day. You get the best results from consistency, and in order to be consistent you need to enjoy the journey.

STORAGE ON WHEELS Bar carts work perfectly in bathrooms with little to no cabinets or shelves. They can be moved out of the way or closer to the shower or vanity as needed.

Keeping school real Products to reduce pollution, community based youth programs, homelessness support and dealing with drug and alcohol addiction were all in focus at Grant High School earlier this month as students took part in Entrepreneurial Immersion Week – a week where entrepreneurial skills, critical thinking, career opportunities and research skills are front and centre. Targeting students from Year 8-11, each year level had a specific program to work through. Year 8 and 9 students participated in the Young Change Agent’s program; a design-thinking based social entrepreneurship endeavour. It saw students working in small groups to identify a problem within the local community and developed a social enterprise idea to solve the problem working through practical and theory based activities before pitching their ideas to their peers and a judging panel.

The week highlighted the level of awareness and passion young people have about the issues within their community and the creative ideas to solve them - key skills needed to be future ready citizens – with the winning teams earning a free bowling session courtesy of Kaboom. The Year 10 students spent the week with further study and career opportunities in their sights. Offered seven career choices, the students enjoyed activities at school, TAFE and on site at workplaces. Retail students, as well as the beauty students, spent this week attending lectures and workshops at TAFE along with the beauty students, while sport and fitness students worked with fitness lecturer Jacinta Clark at school running time trials, undergoing weight training and developing other fitness skills. Conservation students took part in seed collection at a local nursery,

guided by TAFE lecturers, before heading on an excursion to the Mount Burr Conservation Park, learning more about conservation management and maintenance. Working closely with Group Training Employment, the construction students initially earned their white card at TAFE, which allows them to enter any worksite safely, before heading to construction sites around the city for the remainder of the week. The Early Childhood group also spent serious time in real work situations, working alongside qualified educators, while the hospitality students also headed to a real kitchen and restaurant with Thyme at the Lakes coming on board and running the students through barista skills, setting and waiting on tables, and, of course, developing their cooking skills. Year 11 students undertook a week long intensive program to kick start their compulsory SACE Research Project. Students learnt a variety of research skills through various of activities and an Amazing Race style treasure hunt. By the end of the week students had a clear idea of their research question, links to primary sources and a plan for their folio, which will stand them in good stead for this semester and future research based tasks. The Entrepreneurial Immersion Week is not the end of that kind of practical based training for the Grant

High School students with the school looking to run a Shark Tank type activity later in the year, as well as the $20 Boss Program. $20 Boss is a free-to-access program that provides $20 of real money to build a business and a tangible way of supporting students to learn, identify and talk about the skills they’re building. Through $20 Boss students are challenged to solve a real problem and help them better understand their relationship with money. Developed in consultation with students and educators, the

$20 Boss program is the largest entrepreneurship program in Australia. Above (far left) - Megan Ruwoldt & Lily Oakley Below (far left) - Toby Grigg, Tori Grosse & Georgia Barrett Above (centre) - Riley Maconachie Above (right) - Tameka Coppick & Emily Pridham

Fundraising effort to forge ahead The Fennell Forestry Truck Pull Challenge will take a break in 2020, as the community continues to work its way through the challenges associated with COVID-19. The free community event has been held in Mount Gambier annually since 2013, drawing national attention and support from within the timber, truck and transport industry, local business and the community. Almost $150,000 has been raised for children’s charity, Variety SA, during this time. Fennell Forestry managing director and event organiser Wendy Fennell said the decision to cancel was made in response to the uncertainty

surrounding the global pandemic. She thanked inaugural sponsors The Barry Maney Group and Trident Tyres for their unwavering support during the seven successful truck pull events. Ms Fennell also encouraged wouldbe competitors to use the time off to their advantage. “There is plenty of time to get into training and build your team bigger and better than before. Who knows what 2021 will look like? I suggest you be ready,” Ms Fennell said. For those keen to continue their support of Variety SA and the owners of Variety Bash car #58, Trevor and Yvonne Sims, donations can still be

made via the Variety website. “Anyone who is able to reach out and support this amazing children’s charity, should do so. Your donation will bring some welcome relief to a family doing it extra tough at this unprecedented time,” Ms Fennell said. To donate, visit sa/donate/. Be sure to type “CAR #58” in the message field, so your onation can be added to Trevor and Yvonne’s Variety fundraising tally. PHOTO: 2019 Truck Pull Photo courtesy of Laura Thomas.

Records broken at Mount Gambier and District Saleyards The Mount Gambier and District Saleyards has retained its reputation as a premier livestock selling centre during the COVID-19 pandemic with a strong finish to the year. District Council of Grant deputy chief executive officer Jane Fetherstonhaugh said it’s a good news story for the agricultural sector during these difficult and uncertain times. “Staff and stockaAgents have spent a significant amount of time in modifying practices and standards

to not only meet but exceed the COVID-19 safety recommendations so that the saleyards can continue to run responsibly and effectively during the pandemic,” she said. “ We are very encouraged with the sales results as it indicates industry confidence and trust in the facility and its staff.” More than $17m worth of stock passed through the facility during March and the March store sale values doubled to $5m – a record for the yards.

Stock agent chair Sam O’Connor, applauded the excellent results which are a testament to the hard working saleyards team and dedicated selling agents who go above and beyond to make the saleyards a leading selling centre for the Green Triangle Region. “With saleyard prices remaining at historically high levels, numbers have remained strong in recent times which provides confidence in this industry well into the future,” he said. “Although overall numbers were slightly down for 2020 this was made

up in stock value, with an increase of nearly $13m on last year’s figures and the average price per head of cattle increasing to $1304, up from $1095 last financial year.” For the 2019-2020 financial year a

total of 164 sales were held with close to 80,000 head of cattle and 110,000 sheep being sold, grossing more than $122m in total sales at the Mount Gambier and District Saleyards. The Mount Gambier and District Saleyards Stock Sale is held on Wednesday of each week and commencing at 9am during the winter, with store sales being held on the second Friday of each month, commencing at 10am.

Funding on offer to improve connectivity and communication in the regions Applications for the Australian Government’s $53 million Regional Connectivity Program are now open. Member for Barker Tony Pasin is encouraging regional development organisations, telecommunications providers, as well as government organisations in Barker to collaborate on projects and apply for funding. The program will provide targeted investment in local telco infrastructure projects to maximise economic and social opportunities in regional and remote communities across the country. “We are taking a ‘place based’ approach to investment through the program because we recognise that regions have distinct digital needs and in some cases require customised solutions to complement existing infrastructure,” Mr Pasin said. Examples of projects that could be funded under the program include upgrades to mobile infrastructure to improve community access to telehealth, remote education and retail internet and phone services, or the development of enterprise-grade broadband networks to support local agricultural, manufacturing and tourism businesses to increase their online presence. “Collaboration is an

excellent method to give an application real ‘bite’. We are looking for projects that will provide the most profound benefit to local communities and by joining forces, I’m confident we will see many great solutions come from the regions to improve services in the regions,” Mr Pasin said. “I encourage applicants to use the Program Noticeboard to share ideas and work together to develop proposals that will improve connectivity for Barker and drive benefits for our community.”

Forestry sector puts forward future vision The next generation of aspiring foresters and timber workers are being given the keys to fast track their career thanks to an innovative pathway program. A total of 12 students from Limestone Coast schools are enrolled in the inaugural year of the Forestry Pathways Program which is assisting the Green Triangle sector to manage recruitment gaps. Starting as early as Year 10, students can study for up to three years working towards a Certificate III in Forest and Wood Products whilst earning valuable SACE credit points. Emma Handford, from the South Australian Department of Education, said students were given a three-session overview, hosted and presented by industry, covering everything from working in blue gum and pine, the nursery, harvest and haulage and milling process. The Forestry Pathway Program is a OneFortyOne led, industry, FitNet and Department of Education collaboration. This round has been supported by NF McDonnell and Sons, Timberlink, Green Triangle Forest Products, HVP Plantations, Timberlands and SFM Asset Management who have volunteered their organisations to host and mentor students through the program. NF McDonnell and Sons CEO Craig Nisbet said the training was invaluable in providing a new channel to highlight career opportunities in the sector. “There is a good balance of theory and practice from local industry identities so these students

can get a real hands-on perspective of careers available in the forestry sector,” Mr Nisbet said. Fellow program supporter, Timberlink Australia’s talent acquisition partner Ben Stow agreed the program was providing long-term industry benefits. “It is pleasing to know that the work being done today is setting the building blocks for these young people to start a rewarding career in the Limestone Coast region which could take them anywhere,” Mr Stow said. Mount Gambier based training organisation LITA, which manages much of the training, is seeing the benefits come to life in the classroom. “Seeing their excitement and enthusiasm as they undertake the activities makes leading this program so rewarding,” LITA general manager Sandy Kanahs said. This year’s students benefitting from the program include St Martin’s Lutheran College student Xavier Farrell and Ashton Slotegraaf of Grant High School. The pair were attracted to the course to achieve their career goals of working as fitters in a local mill. For fellow classmate, Tenison Woods College student Fergus Calderwood the lure of “being out in the bush” was the primary attraction. “I hope to one day have a career (in forest), hopefully driving machinery,” he said. The use of a harvesting simulator provided Fergus and his classmates with a taste of how to use the technical million-dollar equipment on a recent field-day.

Earlier this month they were learning how to grade wood, recognising and marking quality issues with various pine log. They will soon begin to learn how to build effective workplace communication skills and gain an understanding of the importance of workplace health and safety. OneFortyOne’s Linda Cotterill said the program did more than just recruit future talent. “It’s about sharing with our local youth the role forestry plays in our community as one of the largest employers and that it offers long term, sustainable employment in a wide range of roles like operators, trades, foresters, lawyers, accountants, safety, human resource experts and more,” she said. Financial sponsor of this latest round, FitNet’s Lew Parsons said “forestry can open many doors”. “From working in science, research, human resources, data analysis, accounting, engineering, technical trades such as mechanics – the scope is broad and for many of our students they didn’t realise the enormity of the sector until they started this learning,” he said. The pathway program is currently open to all secondary schools in the Limestone Coast with hopes of extending its reach to western Victorian schools in the coming years. Up to 15 students are recruited via an application process starting in August each year from years 10 to 12. The Green Triangle Forest Industries Hub has

supported the program, recognising the need to attract and retain staff as a key pillar in its strategic plan. Hub executive general manager Liz McKinnon said the recruitment shortfall had forced some companies to look at global avenues to recruit staff. She said the Hub workplan was identifying areas of skill shortages required over the next decade and the creation of mentor and cadetship programs to support emerging talent. “Together this work is assisting to attract, upskill and develop a workforce that holds the skills to meet future needs,” she said. “We are confident that through this important learning pathway these talented young students, including a growing number of women, will gain a greater understanding of the forest sector and consider it as a worthy future career path.” Above - Thomas Graney, Mt Gambier High School, Bradley Cameron, St Martin’s Lutheran College (back) with Tenison Wood College students Harry Fisher and Fergus Calderwood (front) during a recent industry session at LITA.


Homlessness in focus this week Country agency is calling on governments to invest more in social housing and mental health services as it continues to support hundreds of people without a home or on the brink of homelessness in regional South Australia. Over the past financial year,’s homelessness service worked with 1304 clients, housing 95 per cent of people who approached the agency for assistance across eastern regional South Australia. This included 430 people in various forms of housing, including private rentals, directly supported to maintain their existing tenancy and avoid the risk of becoming homeless. However, homelessness and community services manager Trish Spark said a lack of affordable properties for rent or sale in the regions, along with a public housing shortage, increased pressure on vulnerable people. “We work with people in very challenging situations, including families with young children, and trying to ensure they continue to have a safe home or access to emergency accommodation at an appropriate regional property if they are already sleeping rough is increasingly difficult due to limited housing options,” Ms Spark said. Her comments back this year’s National Homelessness Week campaign, which began Monday, with the agency supporting the theme of Everybody Needs a Home. Homelessness Australia is calling for greater government investment in social housing to construct 30,000 social housing properties nationally over four years to create jobs, stimulate the economy and help end homelessness. “We welcome federal and state government efforts in this area, but more needs to be done as sadly the lack of affordable housing continues to put enormous pressure on people struggling to maintain a safe home,” Ms Spark said. Meanwhile, she said a rise in unaddressed mental health issues was a growing contributor to homelessness issues in regional areas and exacerbated issues for people struggling to maintain tenancies or secure a property. “The lack of adequate mental health services in regional areas continues to pose challenges for vulnerable people, amplifying disadvantage and the risk of homelessness,” she said. “There is a desperate need for long-term, supported mental health facilities in regional South Australia

Close joins elite club

When Brad Close took his first mark in AFL football, the game was only 33 seconds old. He then calmly slotted a major, joining the ranks of debutants whose first kick is a goal and, in turn, became the eighth fastest in history to lot thier first goal. The North Gambier premiership player made his AFL debut on Monday, July 27, in the teaming rain, with a win for the Cats against Fremantle at Optus Stadium, in Perth, and was then part of Geelong’s heartbreaking loss to the Eagles at the weekend, after leading all night.

for those who have difficulty living independently and sustaining tenancies.” Ms Spark raised concerns scaling back of increased JobSeeker payments that were introduced in response to the impact of COVID-19 would add pressure on household budgets, potentially pushing people out of safe and stable accommodation. She said the agency was concerned about a potential influx of people requiring support in the months ahead as the impact of COVID-19 on jobs and incomes continued to affect country people. “Increased payments provided by the Federal Government brought JobSeeker to a level that helped lift people out of the poverty trap and allow them to afford necessities to have a safe and stable home and build a better future, but we are greatly concerned about what will happen when this is scaled back,” Ms Spark said. She said a lack of accommodation for youths in regional areas was also a key issue identified by, prompting the innovative joint-agency Studio Purpose project in Murray Bridge to convert a disused South Australian Housing Authority property into four units for young people to lease as part of a diverse support program. However, she said although this pilot project would demonstrate a way forward and make a significant difference in the lives of young tenants of the properties, it was not enough to address the needs of the large number of youths at risk of homelessness across regional South Australia. can be contacted on 1300 ACCARE (1300 22 22 73).

Magpies notch up first win of the season under lights Kalangadoo notched up its first win of the newly formed Limestone Coast Football League with a gritty come from behind victory over East Gambier under lights last Friday night at McDonald Park. It was the first night game of the interim competition and the first time under lights for senior football in some time, attracting a strong crowd that ended up enthralled despite the low scoring affair. Leading by a goal at the final change, the home side struggled to find a clear target in the forward fifty as Brett Lindner and Mitch Lowe showed nerves of steel and a great ability to read the play, to continue to repel the Bulldogs, who were without the marking power of Mark Rumbelow for the clash. Lowe, in particular, was the star of the final quarter, taking more than half a dozen marks as Kalangadoo built a wall across half back. East did have a chance early in the final quarter to put a two goal gap on the Magpies when Josh Ramson won a hard ball, got it to Matt Willson and found Matt McCallum on the lead but as it was all night, finishing was difficult, and in the end, Kalangadoo was able to clear the ball from that kick in and after scrambling into their own forward fifty, Alex Lyon snapped a goal to bring the visitors to within a point.

The tension spilled over on field in the last quarter with a scuffle near the respective benches stopping play for a while as a dozen players threw their weight around. Not suprisingly, it was on the back of another Lowe intercept mark and pin point pass to Josh Currie on the lead that Kalangadoo loomed to steal the game and Currie kicked truly, giving the 2019 Mid South East Football League premiers an unlikely but hard earned five point victory. In fairness, Kalangadoo arguably had more of the ball in the opening quarter but just could not finish their good work and with Brad Rathjen winning some critical ball in the backline and Todd Lockwood (pictured above right) and Jack Dawe inking up through the middle, East’s ball use was cleaner

in the dewy conditions and they were able to make the most of their limited opportunities with two goals through a strong mark on the lead from Kevin Thomson and a classy snap from Dawe on the stroke of quarter time. East certainly won more of the ball in the second quarter and started to look a class above but again without being able to put any serious scoreboard pressure on the Magpies, the door was left ajar, despite enjoying a 15 point half time lead, in a game where Kalangadoo was held goalless in the opening half. The Magpies first goal of the match came from a likely source - Ben Mules - with a 40m kick after taking a strong contested mark on Rathjen, who was arguably the Bulldogs’ best on the night, before a late snap from Tye McManus (pictured above left) saw Kalangadoo right back in the hunt. Jason Bannister and Lowe were critical down back for the Magpies, while Harry Porter and Ethan Maney won plenty of the ball and Jon Mules was the best big man for Kalangadoo. Rathjen was the shining light down back for the Bulldogs, while McCallum was the best of their forwards, while Nick Lock, Lockwood, Dawe and John Forster were the major ball winners for the home side. The Mundulla-North Gambier clash was also a tight affair with the Western Border Tigers holding on for a four point victory, while South Gambier flexed their muscles with a goal fest against Kybybolite led by best on ground Brett O’Neil.

Interim football league secures sponsorship for 2020 season

Olympian tests local students for cycling program

Grant High School was one of four Limestone Coast high schools that saw students testing to secure one of 16 places in the cylcing program at the Limestone Coast Regional Sporting Academy. The academy, in conjunction with the South Australian Sports Institute (SASI), gave students the chance to be involved in Cycling Talent ID Testing. Grant High School students who participated in the inaugural ISO Bike Challenge, along with other interested students, were invited to test themselves against Olympic Gold Medalist and current SASI cycling head coach Brett Aitken. Students completed a series of tests including, a maximum power output test and a two minute ride at specified power output levels. Aitken was impressed by the level of interest and participation by all those involved. Above (main) - Noah Griffiths, Kai Arbery, Mark Chadwick, Brett Aitken, Tony Elletson, Mike Bakker, Jami Buckley & Patrick Langsmith.

Castec Rural Supplies has a strong history of supporting local sporting and community groups and events.

SOUTH EAST VETERANS GOLF Seventy-two keen golfers made their way to Mt. Burr to tackle the Millicent course as part of the South East Veterans program. The greens were true and very fast resulting in all good scores coming from the Millicent and Attamurra players. First Division was won by the Attamurra captain Peter Waters, with 37 points, with three players having 36, countbacks going to Rob MacIntyre, Attamurra, and John Howe, Beachport, with Wayne Peters missing out. Second Division was won on 35 points by Jim Hyland, Millicent, from Rob Sims, Attamurra, and Grant Rowe, Millicent, and there were further three on 35, which meant a complicated countback for the scorers. An out of character Ross Orchard Trophy win was by Sam Mainwaring and Roy Mitchell and NTPs went to Murray Telfer and Ken MacIntyre. The ball rundown was for 30 points or better. The next outing is at Naracoorte on August 10, followed by Blue Lake on August 24.

Mark Wight takes out weekend cycling event Outstanding conditions greeted riders in week 3 of the Mount Gambier Cycling Club winter series. Thirteen riders met at the usual race spot in Yahl and were set off in four bunches with Pru Riddoch, Harry Opperman and newcomer to racing, Jen Buckland, starting the race six minutes in front of the next bunch. Opperman was battling a corked thigh from football and dropped off early which left Buckland and Riddoch to set the pace. The next bunch consisted of Phil McGee, eventual winner Mark Wight, Gerard Coote and Mike Bakker. Three minutes behind them saw the strong Bruce McLaughlin, club president Dean Zeven and our newest SASI rider Tess Wight, who only had two minutes to find their pace before the back markers catch their tail. Kidman was a scratching this week, leaving Matthew Opperman, Colin “Doc” Weatherill and Ash Herreywn to battle out for time. With the clock at 42 minutes, spectators were greeted with a sign of the riders coming back over the hill and it prove to be an exciting finish with Mark Wight taking line honours from Coote and Bakker. It was another sprint to the line for the scratch men with Opperman just taking the time from Weatherill in 39.58. The junior members of the club took the line for a 10kmsrace. It was boys versus girls and Eddie Buckland starting the race strong. Two minutes after saw the two girls, Molly Opperman and Freya Miller pedalling fast with the aim to catch the limit marker. Elmer Buckland was the lone scratchman and, with a 2 ½ minute gap, had to work hard to catch his brother and the two girls. Eventually it was Miller who powered away from Opperman to claim the win, with Opperman in second place, Eddie Buckland in third and Elmer Buckland in fourth.

LOCAL SPORT Great perimeter shooting in SECBL round of matches MG PLASTERERS SECBL MEN Panthers Men continued their winning ways from last week with another comprehensive win this time over Cougars. Oli Thomson had 22 points which included six three pointers to lead Panthers and Toby de Wit had a strong scoring game for the Cougars with 25 points, however Cougars could not match the talent and depth of the Panthers. Panthers 89 (O Thomson 22, J Walker 17, J Ferguson-Lane 13) def Cougars 42 (T de Wit 25, D Kuring 8, S Holla 7) Bulldogs Blue came away with a win in the all Bulldogs clash. The Blue team controlled the game from early in the first establishing a double figure lead that remained throughout the contest.

Bulldogs Blue 95 (J Jenner 23, W Wright 17, D Hackwill 15) def Bulldogs Red 79 (S Lock 30, M Black 16, M Hirlam 14) Roos bounced back after a big loss to Panthers to defeat Cats. The game was tight for three

quarters with Roos struggling to break free from the enthusiastic Cats team. Roos held on to a six point lead at the last break, despite vKade Bradley doing everything he could at both ends to give his Cats side a chance at victory. Roos managed to string some defensive stops together and convert on the offensive pushing the lead to double figures and the result out of reach of Cats. Bradley had a big impact for his Cats side with 25 points, Malok Makuer shone for Roos with 26 of his own.

Tigers 6 def Strikers 0 In their first Friday night game for the season Tigers under 12 girls came out firing against rivals Strikers. Clare Hopgood got her side off to the perfect start scoring her first goal in the second minute, and then passing off to youngster Alyssa Simon who scored her first ever hockey goal. Hopgood made it 3 within 5 minutes and then Simon doubled her tally with a lovely tip in to score her second goal to make the score 4 nil at the half. Some positional changes saw an even second half, with Rubi Watson looking dangerous with her speed and Tahlia Maynard getting plenty of the ball in the mid field. Monique Shepherd was also influential for Strikers, holding the scoring at bay until a great passing sequence between Laura Doll, Madison Adam and lily McIntish saw McIntish score. Cameryn Bartholomew worked super hard for her team in the midfield, and Laura Doll used great positioning to get on the end of her efforts to make it 6-0, which was the final score.
