Mount Gambier band going strong after One Night Stand

Seaside competition

It is now in its 13th year and the Southern Ocean Art Prize continues to evolve and grow. The Robe based art competition attracts entries from across not just the Limestone Coast but nationwide and since its 2007 debut on the artistic calendar, it has developed into a genuine community event. Artists looking to be part of the 2020 judging should submit their work before the October 23 deadline, including the creative photography award. See inside for full story

She’s a survivor Bonnie Rothall sharing her story to challenge & inspire others

Bonnie Rothall is a lot of things - a business owner, netballer, mother and wife. She is also a breast cancer survivor – in fact last weekend marked the 15th anniversary of her diagnosis. The 39 year old Mount Gambier local willingly shares her story because she is all too aware how important it is to be in tune with your body so you know when something might not be right and the importance of early detection. Bonnie’s message is simple.

“Please carry out self examinations on your breasts even if you are young and have no family history of breast cancer. “If you find something that you don’t think is quite right, see your doctor to get it checked out. “If you aren’t satisfied with their response, seek another opinion. Early detection is key.” And early detection was certainly critical in Bonnie’s cancer diagnosis and prognosis. See inside for full story

Wellness centre a hive of activity Boandik Lodge Community Wellbeing Centre back to full operation

IMPROVING YOUR GUT HEALTH Add apple cider vinegar to your diet, as well as probiotics and believe it or not, your gut loves exercise. Cutting back on junk food and alcohol and basically restricting sugar intake is the key to better digestive health.

WORK HARDER NOT LONGER Struggling to find time for your workout. If exercise and burning calories is your objective, instead of going for a low-intensity, steady-state run for 15 minutes, you’d get more bang for your buck doing 15 minutes of HIIT. Think burpees, mountain climbers, push ups, lunges and bicycle crunches in an intense circuit.

Some snails can “nap” for up to three years.

The opening of the Boandik Lodge Community Wellbeing Centre has opened the door for those of all abilities to exercise and maintain their health and fitness. Built last year, but facing some delays because of COVID-19, and featuring a world class hydrotherapy pool and gymnasium, the centre is available to be used by the wider community, as well as Boandik aged care residents. CEO Gillian McGinty was happy they got through the COVID-19 challenges and were now able to offer their services to everyone. “It’s been a challenging year for everyone, so the gymnasium has only been open for a short period when it was closed by COVID because we had to close because of the restrictions, so that did have an impact,” Mrs McGinty said. “Those people that were using the hydrotherapy pool and the gym were very positive about it before it was closed and they returned when it re-opened and both are expanding on a daily basis with around 250 people a week using the pool for aqua-fitness classes, external physiotherapy bookings and we are just continuing to extend our hydrotherapy pool to meet demand. We’re now open some evenings and hours in the morning and weekends as well, so we’re very much being responsive to the community and how they want to use the pool.” Mrs McGinty said their hydrotherapy pool provided “true hydrotherapy” to users and they have the facilities to accommodate anyone wishing to use it. “Our hydrotherapy pool is running at a temperature of 33 degrees, which is true

hydrotherapy, so anything under that is a warm water treatment and isn’t as effective in penetrating deep into muscles and tissue as what a pool that runs at 33 degrees is as the defining factor is the temperature of the water,” she said. “People are using the pool to reduce pain, to assist with weight loss, to promote good sleep patterns, for strengthening prior to an operation and rehabilitation after and generally maintaining their mobility and being able to exercise in an environment that allows them to be mobile when they’re not on a hard surface. It’s been very positive feedback. Everyone loves the warm of the water and the environment around it and the ease of access because we have ramp access and we also have an overhead lifter so no matter what a person’s abilities are they are able to get to the pool and the flexibility in the times you can attend and the fact that we have free exercise equipment sitting there for them to use at any time. When we started researching the hydrotherapy pool and gymnasium the thing that we wanted to offer was access for any person, no matter what a person’s abilities are, they’re able to access the water and we have seen the benefits of hydrotherapy for people of all abilities.” The Boandik CEO emphasised the facilities were available to everyone in the wider community. “The majority of people using it are from the outside community so we have some residents of our residential aged care homes using it a number of clients from the community that use it, some of our independent living unit people, but the majority of the people are just people who live at home and accessing it from the community,”

When you need to

she said. “We have a range of classes including aqua-fitness classes in the hydrotherapy pool and strength for life classes in our gymnasium as well as individual

programs available for anyone who would like to register their interest and maintain their strength and fitness.

COMMUNITY WELLBEING CENTRE: The community and residents alike are taking advantage of the Boandik Community Wellbeing Centre, including the pool and Strength4Life classes.

Can’t stop the music Chelsea Manor are so much more than a One Night Stand

Hilltop Hoods, G Flip, Meg Mac and Ocean Alley. Most bands dream of appearing at a gig with Australian music royalty – an honour earned after doing the hard yards at local pubs and community events. For Mount Gambier based band Chelsea Manor it was their first gig – claiming a place on the triple J One Night Stand line-up when Lucindale hosted the star studded event last year. For Bianca Hendy, Michael Collins and Ivan Heenan it was a surreal experience. No band starts off playing in front of 15,000 – typically it is a small crowd of family and friends – but nothing has been typical in the fledgling career of Chelsea Manor. After starting on the high of the One Night Stand, the bookings were coming thick and fast but then came COVID and the trio watched their calendar wiped. The anticipated momentum from their stunning debut, that saw them play 13 gigs between that September

debut and the end of the year, was halted by an unprecedented pandemic. “It was scary just seeing things wiped from our calendar,” Ian said. “I guess the comforting thing was everyone was in the same boat, it wasn’t like it was just happening to us,” Michael said” Challenges are nothing new for the trio, especially when you consider that Michael ended up as part of the group after almost conning his way into a tour to Toowoomba last year, when Bianca and Ivan were part of The Skategoats. “It was after that tour that we decided we had to make a choice about where we wanted to go and we decided to continue as a three-piece,” Bianca said. “Ivan and I just really clicked with Michael and we decided to start fresh with something new and that’s when Chelsea Manor was born.” On basically a whim, the newly formed Chelsea Whim applied

to earn a spot at the One Night Stand, but that decision came with its own challenges. “That really had us under pressure,” Bianca said. “We were motivated but hadn’t really been pushing ourselves and thought we would get to writing new songs at the end of the year. So when we found out we would be playing at Lucindale and had no songs, we thought what have we done and what are we going to do.” That conundrum saw Michael’s living room at Yahl become the centre of their universe and they actually recorded their first song, Breathe, in that very lounge room, getting it produced in New South Wales and that weas Chelsea Manor’s entry. It was when Bianca was visiting Michael in his role at Dale Cleves Music, she received that confirmation phone call from triple J Unearthed’s Tommy Faith – they had won the right to grace the stage at Lucindale. “I must admit once we had

played One Night Stand in Lucindale it was hard not to think how are we ever going to top that,” Bianca said. In a way they did – crossing off a bucket list venue for Bianca, Thebarton Theatre in Adelaide, and the airplay for Chelsea Manor, which has become even more important in COVID times, has also been impressive. Not only have their first three singles – Breathe, Lotion and Shakin’ – had airplay on triple J Unearthed but also in the United States on Idobi Radio. The singles, including the fourth release, Better Than, are part of Chelsea Manor’s debut EP but while live gigging was on hold, so was the release of that project. The EP was recorded at The Alamo, in Melbourne and was coproduced by Tyson Fish and Aaron Damon (Captives) and mastered by Forrester Savell. “We have had a lot of good luck,” Bianca said. “Some of the things we have already been able to do from little old Mount Gambier is amazing.” Amazing also how the Chelsea Manor trio in fact became a band.

Within weeks of The Skategoats tour to Queensland, the band Ivan and Bianca were originally part of, their guitarist moved away and suddenly there was a vacancy at the most inconvenient time. Ivan openly admits he then conned Bianca, telling her Michael played guitar, when the reality was he has seen a photo of Michael with a guitar and the reality was, as Michael also confirms, he was not a proficient guitarist. But what he was confident and with a gig on the horizon, he just set himself the task of some speedy self-taught sessions to ensure he could fill the role required for the tour. “I’ve always loved a challenge,” Michael said. “I guess because when I offered to play it was temporary and it was a chance to go to Queensland – in the end it was a bonus I got to continue on with Ivan and Bianca.” Michael might have done the job in Toowoomba but his real gift is behind a drum kit and that’s where he lives as part of Chelsea Manor. “He makes the drum a different instrument,” Bianca said. “You can’t help but watch. I am so glad we’ve got him back on drums.” Michael and Ivan’s friendship developed in high school. Although they were a year apart, they often ended up in the music room at Grant High School together and they would jam and talk music for hours. “I used to go to the music room in my free lessons,” Michael said. “I am not sure what Ivan was supposed to be doing but we would be spend my full double lesson talking music and we’ve been friends ever since and it is music that brought us together.” Both Michael and Ivan credit popular music teachers Scott Maxwell and Mike Bakker with making music fun and allowing them to explore their own style. At this stage, the EP release might be on hold but Chelsea Manor have been involved in another innovative project – a virtual reality film clip of their debut single Breathe. “We love being guinea pigs,” Bianca said. The opportunity came about because the Riddoch Arts & Cultural Centre team wanted to experiment with artistic applications of virtual reality to film and animating a music video for Chelsea Manor provided that opportunity.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN FOR CHELSEA MANOR BIANCA HENDY

Daniel Pearson and UniSA media graduate Mostyn Jacob used Google Tilt Brush in the Media and VR Studio, to combine live action video footage and VR animation to create a video clip for the band’s new single ‘Breathe’. The video was filmed at the old Molony’s building on Commercial Street West, Mount Gambier. “It was a really cool place to be able to see,� Bianca said. “Especially to see some of the things left behind there, like old newspapers. It was an incredible experience. I don’t think we would have had an opportunity to do something like this if it wasn’t for the work put into it by Riddoch.� It was a project that was also a first for the team at the Riddoch. “We hadn’t done anything like this before,� Daniel said. “We’d used Tilt Brush, we’d used the cameras, but we hadn’t combined them together to make something like this.� “Most of the work happened in the studio, as the team developed story boards and used Tilt Brush to hand paint each set in virtual reality, defining camera paths and finishing the final edit of the project using Adobe Premiere,� said Riddoch marketing officer Melissa Horton. Riddoch coordinator Talie Teakle said they were really proud to push boundaries when it comes to creativity at the Riddoch Arts & Cultural Centre. “When we were asked by Music SA if anyone else had ever tried this as they’d never heard of a combination of live action and VR, we knew we were onto something special,� said Ms Teakle. “We can’t thank Bianca, Ivan and Michael from Chelsea Manor enough for letting us experiment with them. The best part was seeing the journey our team took to improve their skills and knowing that this is now a new form of art we can apply to other projects in the future.� Last weekend, Chelsea Manor returned to the stage, with their first post-COVID gig at the Bridgeway Hotel in Pooraka on a bill with

seven other bands. The Chelsea Manor clip has also been nominated for the Best Innovation Award at the South Australian Music Awards and Chelsea Manor was nominated in the punk category. Local vocalist Alison Newman was also nominated for the second consecutive year. Visit the City of Mount Gambier’s YouTube channel to see the full music video, or check for links on the Riddoch Arts & Cultural Centre’s social media channels. Winners of the Music SA Awards will be announced at the award presentation ceremony on Tuesday, November 3.

“My love of music really stems from my dad. He’s obsessed with music and it is the same with me. I don’t think either of us could function or get through mundane tasks without music. When I was really young he would get out his record collection and tell me where he was when he first heard a song and what he was doing. We would go to Movieland and pick out movies to watch and I just loved soundtracks. Placing great songs over moments change the feel of it. My dad actually doesn’t play music. He thinks he can sing. I love The Killers, Elvis, Johnny Cash. I listen to the blues and rock, punk, classic and country. For me, music is all about how it makes you feel more than what genre it is.� Bianca actually started out as a solo artist and did some work with local producer Tim Wilson. “He is ridiculously talented. I recorded a couple of my acoustic songs and he did the instrumental on them. What I really wanted , though, was to be part of a band.�

MICHAEL COLLINS

“I started playing guitar because of guitar hero and my friend was playing guitar but then I conned my parents into getting a drum kit and when a friend of mine got drums it turned into a competition. Ever since then drums have always been my number one.� That was around the time he was in Year 6 and his love affair with music has continued.

IVAN HEENAN

“When I was eight years old I went to Moorak Primary School, and if you decided to learn guitar you could miss one maths lesson and that’s how it all started for me. I learnt classical and Spanish but once I discovered the electric guitar in high school I never looked back and one day in class I picked up a bass and my class mates basically said that’s what you should be doing.�

Talking solar with Pappy Maintenance for your Solar System

After spending a significant amount of money installing your solar system, you want to make sure you can get the most from your investment and maintenance is important to ensure longevity and maximum performance from your system. We are pretty lucky in the South East given our consistent rainfall meaning solar panels are being rinsed off at least on a regular basis and panels don’t tend to have a build up of dirt etc, however, if your system is installed in a dusty/ high traffic location, a clean by a professional once a year may be a good idea. The Clean Energy Regulator recommends that owners have their PV system inspected by a professional after one year of installation. These checks involve inspection of the panels, junction boxes/isolators and wiring to ensure there are no defects or signs of degradation. There is another check they recommend at 5 years to ensure integrity of cables, conduits, voltages etc and that no corrosion is evident. Having monitoring available on your system is another great way to ensure your system is always running at its optimum. There are many different types and levels of

monitoring available depending on the brand of your inverter and the communications available at your property, however, many as a minimum will issue you the owner, with an alert if a fault is detected with your PV system. This way you can immediately identify the issue, have a technician attend if necessary and carry out repairs etc - its terrible to find out your system isn’t working properly only when you receive an electricity bill that doesn’t seem quite right. At O’Brien Electrical Mount Gambier we have qualified solar technicians who can carry out cleaning and maintenance checks on your system. Contact us on (08)7723 2300 and talk to one of our friendly staff who can assist.

Making a difference Stand Like Stone Foundation & Grant District Council combine to help community groups Recovery and wellbeing is in the spotlight as all communities look to recover from the imapcts of COVID-19 and the Stand Like Stone Foundation and District Council of Grant have combined to lend a helping hand to three community groups. Courtesy of a $10,000 cash injection from the District Council of Grant, allocated to to support the recovery, wellbeing and resilience of people in their council area, Stand Like Stone has awarded the grants to the Port MacDonnell & District Men’s Shed, Women in Business & Regional development and the Regional Foodbank. The Men’s Shed received a grant to purchase a new television for their meeting rooms, helping reduce social isolation for some of their older members by giving them a reason to come out and spend time with other like-minded people . Women in Business & Regional Development received a grant to run a wellbeing and resilience event in the District Council of Grant area next year, focused on mental health support for women in agriculture during these isolating times. These events will also enable the organisation to capture and document women’s COVID stories, preserving history and inspiring future generations. Foodbank (SA) Limestone Coast’s grant was to implement their COVID-19 Safe Program. With an increased demand on their services from relief agencies and schools as a result of COVID-19, the grant will enable the organisation to purchase a hand-sanitising station for volunteers, agencies and clients, as well as two

additional warehouse trolleys to help with increased food relief orders. Mayor Richard Sage said he was pleased that a new suite of projects were being undertaken in the district that connect and support communities, which was the intent of Council’s ongoing DCG Care Package established early this year in response to the global pandemic. “In partnering with Stand Like Stone we have been able to reach out to a broader audience and become involved in new initiatives that may not be within our scope at council,” Mayor Sage said. Stand Like Stone’s chief executive officer Anne Kerr said they were delighted to partner with the council on this initiative, and thanked them not only for the generous donation to their community, but also for asking Stand Like Stone to manage the granting process.

“As this region’s only community foundation, our mission is to promote investment in the Limestone Coast for lasting impact and we know the grants to these community groups will deliver a really positive impact for so many people,” Mrs Kerr said. As well as the grants to the three community organisations totalling $7600, a further $2400 will be used to purchase $50 food vouchers from independent supermarkets and distributed to schools in the council area. FOCUSSING ON RECOVERY & WELLBEING: Chris Lethlean (Port MacDonnell Men’s Shed); District Council of Grant Mayor Richard Sage; Lynne Neshoda (Regional Foodbank); Cathy Beckman (Women in Business & Regional Development) and Stand Like Stone Foundation CEO Anne Kerr.

Transport in the spotlight The Limestone Coast Leadership Program (LCLP) Transport Consultation Group is conducting a forum focussing on transport in the Limestone Coast, for stakeholders and the community. Two events will be held to allow a wide range of community members to attend, with an online forum held on Wednesday and a face-to-face forum to be held in Mount Gambier on Thursday. The LCLP Transport Consultation Group have been researching transport in the Limestone Coast, and in particular transporting people around the region, since February this year. With a motion passed in State Parliament requesting a review of all regional city and township bus services, the LCLP Transport Consultation Group is looking to capitalise on that momentum and establish a go-to group in the Limestone Coast to represent the community about this issue. Contact Belinda Anderson at bcanderson016@ gmail.com for details on registering for either the event.

BOOK LAUNCH

Grant High School students work a crime scene as part of science program Students at Grant High School had the opportunity to channel their inner Miss Marple, Sherlock Holmes and Gil Grissom as they were exposed to a variety of technologies used in forensic science. The students became crime scene investigators, working together, examining the evidence and learning about a raft of testing and experiments that real life CSIs use to solve crimes. Students learnt about identifying

fibres, toxicology reports, fingerprints, shoeprints, glass diffraction, interpreting DNA analysis, pathology reports and tracking mobile phone locations. It was a complex crime to solve but the students were able to come up with a feasible scenario and present their findings to the courts. The Forensic Science Workshops are a prime example of schools looking to make science a more practically based

and attractive stream of study, showing the wide variety of career opportunities those skills can generate. The workshops also saw students developing their team work skills, working hand in hand with their class mates to work through the evidence and generate accurate findings. And while the popular TV crime shows that can solve crimes under an hour, students were shown how complex forensic work can be.

Debut children’s book Piano teacher turns her hand to writing

Anxious Annabelle is a children’s literary character created by Limestone Coast based author Heather Lucas, who has published her first children’s book under the pen name Jazzy Joy. A piano teacher by trade, Heather has swapped the ebony and ivory keys for a laptop, bringing to life a story intended for young children, to encourage them to work hard, find their talent and overcome any fears they might have when trying something new. Anxious Annabelle and the Mysterious 88 Keys is that story and if Heather has her way this will just be the beginning of her literary journey. The story’s heroine is Annabelle, a piano student who is always anxious but who wants to succeed at her piano lessons. The story takes Annabelle through her lessons and her imagination of what she can become when she dreams each night. The story ends at the End of Year Concert where Annabelle is made the Student of the Year after all her amazing efforts. “I am a piano teacher and have used these methods to encourage students to succeed in their piano studies,” Heather said. “I had in mind to create several more manuscripts using different characters and their journey to overcome adversity.” Heather was a Penola local, born and bred, before moving to Mount Gambier ahead of starting

a family and that is when her piano teaching career was kickstarted. “During this time I had been learning piano and later was teaching piano,” Heather said. “I also enrolled in an Instrumental Teaching Course and gained registration as a Piano Teacher through Flinders Street School of Music in Adelaide.” She is now the principal of her own piano school, employing two other teachers and four students teachers. She has plied her trade at OB Flat Primary, Mount Gambier High School, Mount Gambier North Primary School, Beachport Primary, Robe Primary, Kingston Area School, Glencoe Central School, Moorak Primary and in its day, St Pauls Catholic School. Heather also has a strong connection to St Martins Lutheran College, having taught at the school in all its guises, since its inception, and she was also leader of one of the church bands. Anxious Annabelle is not just a product of Heather’s musical background though, it is also a result of her passion for art, having taken a number of art courses and entered a plethora of local art competitions. “I have used both my talents as a piano teacher and as an artist to produce this book,” Heather said. The book is available at Dale Cleves Music, Gambier East Post Office, Collins Booksellers and amazon.com.au

Baring it all for a cause Mental health awareness inspires Full Monty event Organisers of mental health fundraiser The Full Monty – are not only promoting a striptease to raise funds and awareness but they are teasing full stop – revealing the cast for the charity event one brave stripper at a time. Fittingly Elliott Jones (pictured) is the first name to be thrust into the public domain as part of the cast of The Truck Factory sponsored event – afte rall it was his idea. It was more than 12 months ago that the Blue Lake Homes owner came up with the idea of a fantastic fundraising event – The Full Monty – sharing his vision with Mount Gambier & Districts Health Advisory Council (MG&DHAC) presiding member Maureen Klintberg and while there have been some hurdles the date is now set for the risqué event. The Barn Palais is set to host the October 31 event, that secured The Truck Factory as its naming rights sponsor and is also strongly supported by Women In Business & Regional Development (WIRBD who began raising fund for the upgrade the outdoor courtyard within the Mt Gambier Hospital Integrated Mental Health unit and the Mount Gambier & Districts Health Advisory Council (MG&DHAC). The evening will include a dinner and local guest speakers who will highlight their mental health experiences, issues and local services and entertainment. Raising awareness of mental health matters in our community is the focus of the major charity event which has been made possible by a group of six ready and eager local blokes who will get their gear off to shine a light on mental health, with the six reluctant strippers currently chasing sponsorship given they are willing to bare all. “We are completely blown away by the generous response that they have received so in particular

we acknowledge the outstanding contribution by the Truck Factory as the naming rights sponsor of the event,” Elliott said. “We thank all of the businesses for supporting such a worthwhile cause and look forward to a fun night. I think after this year we could all do with a laugh.” Maureen Klintberg is not just excited to have the chance to raise funds for the completion of the hospital courtyard but also to raise awareness during what is Mental Health month. “With the stresses that the COVID pandemic has placed on people this year it has never been a more important time to discuss our mental health,” Maureen said. “We are hoping that this event will help to help reduce stigma and facilitate positive and non-judgemental discussion surrounding the important topic of mental health. With one in five Australians experiencing a mental

health illness, it is time we give mental health due attention, and that is exactly what our goal is during October.” Koonara Wines’ Dru Reschke is set to emcee the event. “The proceeds from the event will support several local organisations including Lifeboat SE, The South East Junction & Mt Gambier & Districts Suicide Prevention Network, who all are reliant on donated funds to continue to offer their services,” Dru said.

awarded Churchill Fellowships nationally to create positive change in their local communities. The award gives them an opportunity to meet and work with leaders of influence from across the globe. Lewis said he was excited to be a recipient of the fellowship. “I am excited for the opportunity to expand my knowledge and experience on a global scale,” he said. ““The prestigious ‘Dame Roma Mitchell Churchill Fellowship for the pursuit of excellence in the performing arts’ will enable me to investigate and research innovative arts and cultural business models in order to build my own skills and share what I learn in order to increase entrepreneurialism and capacity in the local arts sector. Lewis said it was an honour and a privilege to be recognised in a community of Churchill Fellows.

“They complete influential work around the country, tirelessly working for the betterment of their respective industries, their communities and Australia,” he said. “I want to sincerely thank the Winston Churchill Trust and the estate of Dame Roma Mitchell for this incredible opportunity.“ With current travel restrictions in place due to COVID-19, Lewis said the trust had given him extended time to undertake his project. “While we await border restrictions to ease, I am using this time as an opportunity to continue my work advocating for a stronger, more resilient Australian arts sector, establishing and building international relationships virtually and connecting and networking with other fellows across Australia.” Check out next week’s Lifestyle1 when we take a more comprehensive look at Lewis’ career.

Wattle Range community has its say Penola & Beachport residents meet face to face with council Two way communication – it’s the key to ensuring a productive relationship between council and the community and Wattle Range Council is in the throes of some serious face to face meetings to help future planning. Community newsletters, social media posts, media releases, information packed websites, leaflets and pamphlets are among the embarrassment of riches at council’s fingertips to share information with their community but nothing beats being in the same room and talking things out. To help facilitate discussion, an online survey was conducted in March and the town meetings are an opportunity to present the findings and flesh out any other issues or concerns. Wattle Range Council CEO Ben Gower was keen for as many residents as possible to attend the meetings and with the Penola and Beachport meetings already completed, the value of these meetings has been ratified in spades, with the Millicent session held on Tuesday. Wattle Range Council also uses a software program that has proved effective in shaping both community sentiment and council strategy with its ability to take community feedback and view it through a number of lenses. “The meetings give us a chance to show the community what their results are telling us,” Mr Gower

Graeme 0419 806 410 Sales

said. “And we hope if they see that at a meeting they will participate in the next survey. “By looking at the results through lots of different lenses it brings a really interesting conversation bubble to the surface. “Bringing the data back in front of people shows the complexity of what the council is dealing with,” Mr Gower said. “There are so many competing priorities and so many competing views. When the community can see the collective results that can see, wow, this is a difficult decision making process. “It makes people aware of the challenges we’ve got in a complicated community.” PENOLA The Penola Town Meeting took place on September 15 where around 50 locals attended to hear the results from an online survey. Wattle Range Council CEO Ben Gower detailed two main priorities from the community that came via the survey that was conducted in March. “The number one priority from council that came through the survey was youth development. And the second priority was economic development,” Mr Gower said. “The general feedback we got was that council’s role is to provide infrastructure and to facilitate the right environment for youth and the right environment for

economic development. “It’s primarily around planning, making sure that access to land is right, freshening up our main streets so that they’re attractive to small business and shoppers. “We’ve got some design work going on in both Penola and Millicent at the moment for some potential future projects about main street rejuvenation. “We’re doing that planning work with the community now. “That kind of resonates with the feedback that we got from both communities. “It’s providing the right support mechanisms, and in the case of youth, it’s our playgrounds, our parks, all those things that the kids are using on a regular basis. “That’s part this strategic planning process; finding what our core priorities are so we can focus on them and deliver them to their appropriate standards. “And then to some degree, stop doing other things that aren’t important so we can redivert our resources onto those things that are.” Mr Gower said the town meetings were important from a

addressed at the meeting was the Beachport boat ramp. The purpose of the ramp has been hotly debated for almost a decade and Gower was intrigued by the findings from the survey. “The general consensus across the Wattle Range Council area was to spend less money on it,” Mr Gower said. “But when you actually look through the Beachport lens, they said status quo is what we’re looking for. “The Beachport community thought council was spending enough; didn’t want us to spend anymore, but didn’t want us to spend any less, and we validated that with the community group in Beachport. “What was really interesting was the farmers want us to spend more money on the boat ramp and all the townies don’t. “So, it obviously means we’ve got an active fishing community in our farmers. “It gives you all sorts these interesting insights into what community preferences are and it really helps the councillors in their ongoing decision making. “We had 24 different criteria. We asked about childcare, dirt roads, bitumen roads, roadside vegetation from a bushfire prevention point of view – we asked every question we could possibly think of.”

transparency perspective and finding out where resources should be prioritised. “I think they enjoyed looking at the complexity of everything that was on display,” he said. “Everyone wants to spend less rates, and yet all the responses were saying we want you to spend more money. “We got to unpack that with them and share the complexity of our decision making process back with the community. “It’s getting that decision priority right on where we spend our scarce resources.” BEACHPORT The Beachport Town Meeting took place on September 29 where around 15 locals attended, giving Mr Gower the chance to share the online survey results and revisit the current strategic plan. “All councils across the state have got to have a strategic management plan that spans for years, and they tend to be reviewed halfway through a council election term,” Mr Gower said. “Ours is still valid for another couple of years but we’re freshening it up.” One contentious topic that was

MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS 2020 MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH

Stress free environment Salts of the Earth Mount Gambier provides the perfect atmosphere to relax and soothe the mind, body & soul

Some facts and statistics surrounding Mental Health & Mental Illness in Australia One out of every five Australians will experience some form of mental illness each year. Three out of every ten will be seriously affected. Depression and anxiety are the most prevalent mental disorders experienced by Australians.

National Mental Health Month is an initiative of the Mental Health Foundation Australia (MHFA) to advocate for and raise awareness of Australian mental health. It is an important time where the Australian community comes together to raise awareness that #MentalHealthMatters.

Nearly one in 10 Australians will experience some type of anxiety disorder each year around one in 12 women and one in eight men. One in four people will experience an anxiety disorder at some stage of their lives. Around one million Australian adults and 100,000 young people live with depression each year. On average, one in five people will experience depression in their lives - one in four females and one in six males.

The National Mental Health Month is unlike many other mental health awareness campaigns. The National Mental Health Month is a program that the MHFA is extremely proud of and we intend to reach out to and educate as many Australians as possible, to help reduce stigma and facilitate positive and non-judgemental discussion surrounding the important topic of mental health in Australia. With one in five Australians experiencing a mental health illness, it is time we give mental health due attention, and that is exactly what the MHFA is wanting to achieve. Throughout this month, many events have been organised in each state of Australia aiming to attract and unite Australians of all ages and backgrounds to raise awareness of mental health for all. WHAT MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH IS LOOKING TO ACHIEVE: • Advocating for mental health • Raising awareness of mental health • Providing education on mental health • Fostering mental health resilience • Providing mental health support to consumers, carers, professionals and general community 2020 THEME MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS The theme for this year’s National Mental Health Month Awareness Campaign is Mental Health Matters. This theme encapsulates and highlights the gravity of the topic of mental health, and how important it is to address in the Australian community. With this theme in mind, we aim to extend our campaign even wider than previous years, with events planned to embrace many different community groups and people of all ages to raise awareness that #MentalHealthMatters.

Salts of the Earth provides the perfect atmosphere to relax and soothe the mind, body and soul. Providing an adults’ room, children’s room and a private room, they can cater for everyone and they understand that mental health and anxiety can affect all ages. The salt rooms provide a stress free environment with negative ions filling the room along with the pharmaceutical salt that is released into the air. With lights dimmed and relaxation music playing it is an ambient atmosphere that allows

healing on many levels while allowing the body to reassert its natural healthy balance. In the children’s room they will benefit while playing in the room allowing parents to relax and breathe in the salty goodness. Anti bacterial and antiinflammatory properties reduce the body’s toxic load, giving relief to an overburdened immune system. Many people have found salt sessions to help their anxiety, help them to sleep better and improve their general well being. Salt therapy also can give relief to many other health conditions

ranging from sinus and hayfever, asthma and respiratory conditions, eczema and psoriasis, coughs and colds and help with sports recovery and performance. Salts of the Earth pride themselves on making you feel comfortable and taking the time to understand what you would like to achieve from salt therapy.

Mental illness affects young people - around 14% of 12-17 year olds and 27% of 18-25 year olds experience a mental illness in any given year. At least one third of young people have had an episode of mental illness by the age of 25 years. The majority of mental illnesses begin between the ages of 15-­25 years. This poses a significant threat to our nation’s future workforce capacity and economic prosperity.

As Mental Health Week begins, Lifeboat SE’s desk and counter cards have begun popping up on tables around Mount Gambier advising how the community can look after the mental health of themselves and others. National Mental Health Week is an annual event that runs from 10 – 17 October aiming to improve community awareness and interest in mental health and wellbeing. The counter cards were made possible with the support of the Limestone Coast Integrated Mental Health Service. Lifeboat SE has been championing the same cause across the region to increase understanding, respect and support for those with mental health challenges and ensuring community members look out for one another’s mental wellbeing. Lifeboat SE’s Matthew Brookes says this is particularly important during the uncertain times of the pandemic. “We can all feel the pressure in

uncertain times when it seems we have no control or capability to manage the situation,” Matthew said. “COVID discussions, restrictions and the impacts on jobs and business all bring these types of feelings. These times can create worries, leading to stress, anxiety and depression. These current unprecedented times can get our stress levels pumped up to high, extended levels. Being up and down for short periods is very normal, but when we run at high levels for an extended time, we can burst. Others often see changes in behaviour before the person realises, making it incredibly important for us to look out for our mates. Let’s look and listen to our community, family and friends, work colleagues and even the boss.” To prevent the pressure levels building Lifeboat SE has some tips to help during this period of uncertainty that will reduce the risk and proactively manage the mind and body chemical release.

Building a strong future WDEA Works helps Mount Gambier resident overcome the odds

Supporting Mental Health Week 10th - 17th October 2020

Mount Gambier woman Cassandra Gill is determined studying to build a strong future for herself, and has put herself on an education path to forge a career in business. Cassandra (pictured above right) was born with a mild intellectual disability called Williams Syndrome. Williams Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder with some distinct facial features, presenting barriers to employment. In the past, its also affected Cassandra’s mental health and self-esteem. With the support of her WDEA Works Employment Consultant Melissa Norman (pictured above left), Cassandra is taking control of her future and building her confidence and employment skills through study. When discussing potential career and study options with Melissa, Cassandra proactively suggested that she would like to study a Certificate III in Business. “Cassandra was quietly determined to further her skills and knowledge through study to increase her employability. WDEA Works was able to support Cassandra in this by enrolling her into the course, purchasing her a laptop and arranging home WIFI so she could study independently,” said Melissa. Cassandra has already completed the first component of the certificate and is on-schedule to have finished the full course by the end of this year. “I am hoping that through completing this study I’m able to improve my employment chances and create a better life for myself. I have always dreamed of travelling and the income of employment would allow this,” said Cassandra. Through study, Cassandra has also gained a sense of personal responsibility, as well as confidence

in her abilities and capability. Melissa has noticed the difference in her personality at their fortnightly meetings. “I am so proud of what Cassandra has already achieved, she has taken responsibility for her assessments and hit all of her deadlines. She is an absolute go-getter and you can see her self-belief is growing.” Cassandra has been able to build her confidence and improve

her mental health. “Studying has given me a sense of direction; I can now see my goals. I can’t wait to finish study and use my new knowledge to gain employment,” she said. Mellissa knows Cassandra has a promising future. “I look forward to continuing to support Cassandra. She has such a positive attitude. I know she has what it takes to achieve her goals.”

Survivor shares simple message Bonnie Rothall marks 15 years since her breast cancer diagnosis by emphasising the importance of early detection Bonnie Rothall is a lot of things - a business owner, netballer, mother and wife. She is also a breast cancer survivor – in fact last weekend marked the 15th anniversary of her diagnosis. The 39 year old Mount Gambier local willingly shares her story because she is all too aware how important it is to be in tune with your body so you know when something might not be right and the importance of early detection. Bonnie’s message is simple. “Please carry out self examinations on your breasts even if you are young and have no family history of breast cancer. If you find something that you don’t think is quite right, see your doctor to get it checked out. If you aren’t satisfied with their response, seek another opinion. Early detection is key.” And early detection was certainly critical in Bonnie’s cancer diagnosis and prognosis. “I want to share my personal story to prove that you don’t need to be “old” or have family history to be diagnosed with breast cancer,” she said. “I was 24 and about four months pregnant with my first child when I found a lump in my left breast while in the shower. It was hard and about the size of a pea and wasn’t far under the skin. “I knew I had an antenatal appointment with my doctor in a

SO MUCH MORE THAN A SURVIVOR: Bonnie in action for her beloved Glencoe Netball Club (above) and (left) Bonnie with brother Dane Paproth at a business awards function last year. couple of weeks and said to myself if it was still there then, I would mention it to her. The lump was still there so my doctor had a bit of a feel and advised she thought it was most likely a cyst but wanted to double check - thank goodness.” That led to an ultrasound, which was performed locally, and when a visiting Adelaide based specialist was called into the room to have a look, Bonnie started to feel uneasy. “I knew this wasn’t good - she said there was something there and wanted me to have a biopsy done to further investigate,” she said. That biopsy was also performed locally and then came the wait. “Waiting for those results was not fun and when I got a phone call from my doctor asking me to come in urgently I knew it was bad news,” Bonnie said. “My doctor told me it was breast cancer and cried along with myself and my husband as she advised she had made an appointment with a surgeon in Adelaide for two days time. “I still thank my lucky stars she sent me to get it checked out further.” Now six months pregnant, Bonnie headed to Adelaide with the support of her family full of trepidation. “I had no family history of breast cancer and didn’t know what was involved or what the next steps were - I would later learn that it depends on the location, type and how aggressive the cancer is as to how to best deal with it,” she said. “After further ultrasounds and mammograms my surgeon advised the best course of action would be a full mastectomy of my left breast - it was very aggressive as I was so young and my cells were reproducing so quickly. I told myself I had another boob and it would be fine. Feeling sorry for myself wasn’t going to change the situation so we had to deal with it as best we could.” A battery of tests ensured, including a full body scan and heart checks. CONT. OPP PAGE


BREAST CANCER AWARENESS OCOTBER IS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and an important time for National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to highlight why research in this area is so crucial. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia, with 8 people losing their lives to the disease every day. Almost 20,000 Australians will be diagnosed with the disease this year alone. That equates to 55 Australians every day. And nearly 3000 Australians will lose their lives to breast cancer this year. That’s someone’s mother, sister, friend or family member whose life has been tragically cut short because of the disease. Although the five-year survival rate has increased from 76% to 91% since 1994 thanks to research, there is still progress to be made to stop deaths from breast cancer. By targeting the remaining 9% who don’t live past this survival rate, NBCF’s goal is to reach zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. There are lifestyle factors that have been linked to breast cancer risk. Although these may increase your risk (or chance) of developing breast cancer, having one or more of these risk factors does not mean that you will definitely develop cancer.

FROM OPP. PAGE “Generally there was lots of prodding and poking and then I was scheduled in for surgery a couple of days later.,” Bonnie said. “I was so lucky that my family were able to drop everything to be with me and could afford last minute accommodation and those sort of things. “My workplace was also great and just told me to do what I had to do and let them know how I was going.” Understandably, Bonnie was not just consumed with worry about her own health but, oof course, the health of her baby. “I was so worried about the baby but was advised they would go to sleep with the anaesthetic just like me and wake up once it wore off as soon as I woke up from surgery I made them check their heartbeat to make sure everything was OK and it was,” she said. Bonnie started her recovery in Adelaide just to be near her specialists and ensure everything was tracking as it should be before returning home for an induced birth, brought forward a fortnight, so the gap between surgery and chemotherapy was not more than three months. December 12 saw the arrival of a seven pound baby boy but there was little time to enjoy family life before the Rothall family was back to Adelaide for treatment. “We didn’t get much time to settle into family life,” Bonnie said. “This was the first of six rounds which were three weeks apart and thankfully our son was an angel of a child and didn’t mind travelling and I handled chemo pretty well without too many side effects.” It wasn’t all smooth sailing but focussing on being the best mother

she could be, kept Bonnie pretty well on track. “Following chemo I wanted to try and get back to “normal” as quickly as possible but also didn’t want to leave the house too often, having no hair and having to stuff one side of my bra with wadding to half resemble a breast. There were good days and quite a few bad days where I would console myself in the shower alone but again my baby was my main focus and I poured all of my energy and positive vibes his way.” It was roughly at the six month mark Bonnie was able to return to work part time and she has so much gratitude that she had such understanding and flexible employers. “Life soldiered on and the world kept spinning,” she said. Two years on from chemo and Bonnie and husband Luke were welcoming their second son. “It was a bit of a nervous pregnancy as it was in the back of my mind that another cancer could rear its head due to the hormones but we had tests and checks done, kept an eye on things but him and myself were both fine,” she said. “I tried to breast feed with one breast but in the end had to give it up which was the best for him and myself.” Then came the decision to undergo reconstructive surgery. “It was very long and gruelling but I am so glad that I did it,” Bonnie said. “I can now wear singlets and bathers without being self conscious.” Bonnie still undergoes annual checks which include ultrasounds and mammograms and she regularly consults with her surgeon. Marking the 15th year since her diagnosis saw Bonnie in a reflective mood, grateful for the support of

her friends and family and new friends made over the past 15 years courtesy of her involvement with the Mount Gambier Breast Cancer Awareness Group, raising funds and awareness. “During this time I have made many friends who went through a similar experience to myself, with quite a few of them being diagnosed under the age of 40 - it would surprise you,” Bonnie

said. “I consider myself one of the lucky ones though. I also knew a few local ladies quite well who unfortunately lost their battle with this horrible disease - when I think of them and their families, which is quite often, it breaks my heart - young children should not be left without a mother. So stay safe and don’t forget to check your boobies.”

Likewise, having no known risk factors also does not guarantee that you will never develop cancer. If you are concerned about any of these risk factors, see your doctor to discuss any concerns prior to making lifestyle changes. Alcohol intake, smoking, physical activity, being overweight and obesity, having childnre and breast feeding are all possible lifestyle1 factor. There are also the factors you can’t control, like family history, gender, age and genetics. The only way to stop deaths from breast cancer is by funding research to improve our understanding of how breast cancer originates, grows and spreads so that we can stop it in its tracks.

Still lending a helping hand Mount Gambier Breast Cancer Awareness Group continues to provide support thanks to generosity of the local community

Proudly Supporting

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The tireless fundraising efforts of their dedicated volunteers and the ongoing generosity of the local community saw the Mount Gambier Breast Cancer Awareness Group in a strong financial position when COVID hit. With the group’s annual Pink Party, which always sells out, cancelled and other community groups unable to run their usual events that often sees funds directed to the local group, finances were always going to be tight. It has meant putting the group’s next big financial outlay for a new project has been put on ice but importantly, has meant the group has been able to continue to fund the Helping Hand Bags – a critical goodies bag with vouchers for breast cancer patients that range from fuel to groceries to everything in between. The Helping Hand Bags were the brain child of Mount Gambier Breast Cancer Awareness Group member Maria Knightly and they have proved to be a godsend for thousands of patients and their families as they take on their cancer battle. As of this week, group member Maxine Tuffnell has tallied that 265 bags have been handed out – 40 of those this year. It is a program coordinated by Maria in conjunction with the breast care nurse and the bags have

incrementally increased in value from $300 in the early days to $1000 in 2020. And not only do the patients and their families appreciate the bags but they also are more than happy to give back, many handing back any vouchers they don’t desperately need. “We have had a farmers wife give back the fuel voucher because she could access bowser on the farm,” Maxine said. “And there are so many examples like that. It is definitely hard for people to ask for and accept help and even then they only use what they really, really need.” Of course, the group’s fundraising has also financed some major projects in the region, with their latest outlay being around $80,000 for a state-of-the-art lymphedema

machine and the associated training for Therapy for Life physiotherapist Shelley Blachut. The focus on lymphedema, which is not the exclusive domain of cancer survivors, but does afflict that group more frequently, has been an almost decade long campaign, according to group member Loraine Baron, that had significant input from Member for Mount Gambier Troy Bell as it ramped up in recent years. “Buying the machine means treatment is available in Mount Gambier,” Loraine said. “We actually have the most up to date diagnostic machine in Australia.” Mount Gambier Breast Cancer Awareness Group, Mr Bell and the local lymphedema support group also didn’t stop there, pushing for and eventually achieving, subsidised garments, which are so expensive but so critical for lymphedema sufferers. The group also ran lymphedema information sessions for health care workers and the community, headed by Flinders University’s Professor Neil Piller, who is at the forefront of lymphology. “We were told not to waste out time organising the sessions,” Maxine said. “But they were so well supported and we booked the room out.” Maxine can also attest to the ongoing generosity of the community when it comes to supporting the Mount Gambier Breast Cancer Awareness Group. She had a woman walk into her office recently and hand over $2000; the local BP has donations tins that are emptied and hand over hundreds of dollars a year; the WIN TV Golf Day, that last year handed over $7500, right through to Ava Collins, a young girl who decided to make and sell scrunchies and was able to donate her takings. The group also received a significant windfall from a raft of local businesses involved in a local motor industry event at The Barn, including the Barry Maney Group, Carlin & Gazzard, Noel Barr Toyota, OGR, Baxter Hire and Bernie Flood. “We put back into the community because the community do it for us,” Loraine said.

Walk down memory lane Mount Gambier Breast Cancer Awareness Group celebrated 20 years in 2019 - this is how the members reflected on the past two decades at last year’s celebration event It was in 2000 that Leanne Kosch and Kay Holloway hosted the first Breast Cancer Luncheon in Mount Gambier and at the end of last month, what became the Mount Gambier Breast Cancer Awareness Group celebrated 20 years of providing support, raising awareness and fundraising with an afternoon tea honouring past and present committee members and community groups and individuals that have contributed to the work of the group. Evan Kosch, who has hosted Mount Gambier Breast Cancer Awareness Group events at the Commodore on the Park, for the past two decades said the day was about sharing memories. “In the early days it was pretty tough for us all,� Evan said. But he knows Leanne, who lost her battle with breast cancer in May 2001, would be proud of what the group has become and how long it has continued the work she began. “We just had to knuckle down and do it and here we are 20 years later,� Evan said. Group member Jill Gilmore said the group saw the 20th anniversary as the perfect opportunity to pass on their gratitude to a generous community. “Our community is extremely generous and gives lots and lots to different organisations,� Jill said. “We are a group of women who didn’t know each other but became close working for the same cause.� And the Mount Gambier Breast Cancer Awareness Group has been the benefactor of that community generosity meaning programs such as the Helping Hand Bag Project and their more recent work in the lymphedema space, as well as fundraising to refurbish Adelaide accommodation for local patients and upgrading of chemotherapy facilities at local hospitals. One of the group’s members from the early years, Lynette Hirth, also spoke at the event, on behalf of herself and Kaye Chalk, covering the first decade of the hard working group. “When you’ve been touched by cancer you are given so much encouragement from people from the community, from friends and health care providers that you do want to give back,� Lynette said. She fondly remembered that inaugural lunch – its success all but forcing the group to form and to make the luncheon an annual event. Hosted by former ABC presented Stan Thomson and boasting guest speakers the calibre of Amanda Vanstone, Dorinda Haffner, Natasha Stott Despoja and Michael Angelakis, that first decade saw the luncheon raise around $14,000 each year. “We just wanted people to

be aware of breast cancer and it was such a growing disease amongst our community,� Lynette said. “We were always blown away by the generosity of the Mount Gambier, Millicent and Tantanoola communities – they were so good to us in helping raise these amounts. We were very proud and humble to have raised the money we did.� Lynette and Kaye Chalk stepped away from the group, believing it was time for fresh blood and new ideas and the luncheon has since become the now, always sold out, Pink Party – a cocktail event, still hosted at the Commodore on the Park. This year’s event is on October 25. Long time supporter of the group and best friend of co-founder Leanne Kosch, Wendy Richardson marked the 20th anniversary with some wonderful anecdotes and a $200 donation. Maria Knightly is another long

serving committee member with the group, who has been the driving force behind the Helping Hand Bag Project, arguably the project most local breast cancer patients are familiar with and see as a genuine life saver for patients and their families. Instigated in 2012, the bags were originally valued at $300 each but through hard work and continued fundraising, the group now provides $600 worth of fuel vouchers, food vouchers, massage vouchers and other helpful boosts for patients with 233 bags having been handed out to this point.

RURAL RUNDOWN Taking care of lambs Derrynock Poll Dorsets & meat maternals Management and nutrition of the ewe will always have the greatest influence over lamb survival. However, there are huge benefits to be gained from having stronger lambs at birth, with a greater cold tolerance, and plenty of quality milk available at birth. A focus on moderate birth weight with an average or shorter gestation length, and increased milk production, has helped to decrease ewe assist rate at birth, therefore improving lambing ease and lift lamb survival in commercial and stud ewes at Derrynock to above 95%, which is well above the industry standard of around 70%. We are very excited about the results, in particular when incorporating selection pressure on the gestation length as part of our overall lamb survival strategy. With scanning rates reaching 185% in our commercial flock of approx 800 Meat Maternal ewes in recent years, it was time to increase our focus on lamb survival. We are finding our best results are coming from ewes having 4.5 -5.5 kg lambs at birth. This has meant we can utilise rams with higher birth weights (0.4 to 0.5), and subsequent growth rates, that also have shorter gestation length ASBV’s. Lambs that are born earlier are not necessarily lighter, but are born with a lot more ease. They generally appear wetter at birth, and the ewes appear to lamb quickly and with vastly fewer presentation issues. The actual gestation length of the ewes recorded over the past 8-10 years has varied from 141 days to 154 days. We would say that approximately 90% of lambing

problems occur in those ewes lambing after 150 days, with a higher incidence of presentation issues, big lambs, dry or yellow coloured, or stressed lambs at birth. As a result of selection, we have moved our average gestation length from 148.5 days back to 147 days in Poll Dorset ewes, and 146 days in our maternal composites over the past 3 years. Emphasis on good smooth shoulder and neck placement is also important. As a direct result of the information gathered from Gestation length (gl) progeny testing in our commercial and stud flocks, we have seen a reduction in our birth assist rate to less than 1% in approximately 1000 - 2012/2018 drop ewes for our 2019 lambing. This has resulted in a lamb survival rate of 95% at birth, over all birth type categories. The flock pregnancy scanned at 180% average over all year drops. We look forward to the results of a further trial we are conducting this year on our commercial ewe lambs. We are hopeful that conducting economically relevant sire progeny tests, utilising our commercial ewe flock that we will continue to improve the profitability of our commercial clients, with continued focus on Eating Quality with particular emphasis on Marbling, feed conversion, lamb survival and early maturity. We will have some of the high ranked Poll Dorset & Maternal rams for marbling available for sale in 2020, with their progeny being utilized in progeny testing that will evaluate lambs at different ages/weights being fed on a range of different rations.

With an emphasis on Eating Quality, Maturity and disease resistance in both out Maternal and Terminal flocks we believe that Derrynock can provide a rare opportunity for producers to make quick improvements in traits like marbling, with selection pressure provided on both sides of the Genetic equation.

Naracoorte Market Report SHEEP & LAMBS Numbers continue to climb as new season lambs start to dominate the pens with 9,092 mostly new season lambs and 3,476 sheep combined to total 12,568 head overall with a lift of over 5000 head last week at Naracoorte. These sold to the usual array of trade and processor buyers with more active restockers this week. Quality was good with the offering showing some good weights and being very fresh in the skin in a buoyant market that spiked in price in line with other markets. The sale had a lift of $10 to $20 on the lambs, with sheep lifting as well by $5 to $8/head as processors competed strongly for supply. Light new season lambs ranged from $93 to $139, with the light weight trade types returning from $136 to $148/ head. Restockers were active last week in greater numbers as they sourced light lambs from $55 to $99 and from $107 to $144/head for those with more conditioning.

Hamilton Market Report SHEEP & LAMBS Agents yarded 700 old lambs and 1586 sheep at Hamilton last week. The offering of lambs was very mixed in quality with the better end receiving the most competition. The sheep were very good, with all weights and grades available. All the regular buyers were in attendance and active in a market where lambs were $10 to $15/head dearer. Sheep were stronger by $15 to $20 per head. Light 12 to 18kg lambs on offer made from $101 to $115/head, averaging from 600c and 700c/ kg cwt. The light trade weight lambs 18 to 22kg sold from $126 to $146/head, to average

between 650c and 700c/kg cwt. The medium trade weight lambs 22 to 25kg made from $135 to $178/head, to average from 650c and 680c/kg cwt.

Terminal sires sold to $52 and Merino rams made $136/ head.

Mount Gambier Market Report CATTLE Numbers eased slightly as agents yarded 597 head of liveweight and open auction cattle. These sold to another large field of trade and processor buyers with feeders again active with a small number of restockers also operating. Quality was generally good with more finish on offer last week as the market mainly ranged from firm to slightly dearer in places. A small offering of vealers came forward as both steers and heifers sold to a high of 410c/ head. Yearling steers to the trade ranged from 384c to 403c to lift 10c on a limited supply as similar heifers returned from 348c to 399c/kg. Feeder steers made from 356c to 412c as feeder

heifers sold from 350c to 398c/kg. Grown steers and bullocks were of better quality this week as the trade operated from 330c to 394c to remain unchanged in price as feeders were active here from 346c to 392c and a small number of extra heavy bullocks sold to 325c/kg. Grown heifers to the trade ranged from 302c to 350c as feeders sought supply from 322c to 354c and manufacturing steers returned from 312c to 328c/kg. Heavy cows lifted up to 8c as they ranged from 280c to 309c with the lighter types selling from 190c to 272c as feeders operated from 244c to 289c/kg. Bulls ranged from230c to 290c/ kg.


RURAL RUNDOWN Taking their sale online Chrome making history with online auction in 2020 With so much uncertainty looming and state borders closed, Chrome has engaged the services of Elite Livestock Auctions for its upcoming sale on the 8th of October. Buyers will have a number of alternative bidding options available to enable the sale to run in a Covid Safe environment. It is envisaged that the traditional on property auction will still be able to take place with the addition of Elite Livestock’s online bidding platform. Convenient Bidding options include: • Bid online in real time remotely, via your desktop computer, laptop, iPad or phone • Phone bidding for remote clients with limited internet access • In person in a Covid safe environment on property at Chrome Chrome will continue to deliver rams as it has done in previous years to most destinations including south east of SA, Victoria, Southern NSW and Tasmania. “Chrome supplies rams from top end elite stud types and large even lines of commercial rams for those on a budget” said Chrome principal Matt Tonissen. “We offer a very reasonable upset price of $500

at our auction sales and buyers receive every 6th ram purchased free” “I don’t know of any other stud that offers this sort of reward for volume buying” he said Maternal Sires The mainstay of the ram breeding operation over the years has been the production of rams for high performance self replacing maternal flocks, across their Chromedale, Perendale and Coopworth breeds. The Chromedales have been the signature breed for a number of years now, as more producers shifted to self replacing their prime lamb dams. The self replacing system offers producers the opportunity to take control of their ewe flock, enabling selection for a variety of profitable attributes, such as: • High weaning percentages • Fantastic mothering ability • High growth rates to weaning • Tough feet • Resistance to Worms • Successful ewe lamb joinings • Great pasture utilization • Selling surplus ewes into a buoyant market All these great attributes add up to an easy-care resilient breeding ewe, capable of toughing it out in the extreme conditions of Southern

Australia, both in the wet and the dry. Selection for moderate adult weight has been a priority over recent years as well, aimed at producing an efficient medium framed breeding ewe. Around 2000 mated maternal ewes annually guarantees great depth, ensuring only the best rams make it through to sale. Terminal Sires The Icon Southie has been a great addition to the terminal breeding program at Chrome, a fast growing early maturing terminal sire, that is also suitable for terminal sire lambings out of maidens and ewe lambs. By using ICON Southies, one of their large-scale clients has reduced assisted births from 10% to less than 2% in his ewe lambs, a great result, improving labour efficiency, lamb survival, ewe mortality and profitability. The ICON Southies now contain predominantly Southdown genetics, the lambs hit the ground running and their early maturing attributes result a very easy doing, tight skinned lamb that is very marketable straight off mum or easily finished. The Icon Poll Dorset leg of the Terminal sires bred at Chrome offers a stable traditional meat sheep option with a difference - shorter in the leg, early maturing and lots of muscle makes for easy soft doing sheep that offer great shape and carcass. Gone are the days of big long leggy slow maturing terminal sires. In Matt’s opinion lambs sired from moderate frame, high growth, fast maturing terminal sires are the way of the future. Demand continues to be strong for their Poll Dorset rams given their strong performance, from the large Chrome client base. “Our buyers comment on how nuggetty and early our Poll Dorsets finish, resulting in more lambs on the truck in the first draft,” Matt said.

Naracoorte Market Report CATTLE Numbers lifted as agents yarded 963 head of live weight and open auction cattle. These sold to a larger field of trade, restocker and feeder buyers who all competed for supply. Quality was mixed with less of the heavy cattle this week with this being balanced by a better line up of cows as the market ranged in price from firm to slightly better in places. A small offering of vealers came forward with both the trade and feeders active here as steers made from 410c to 434c, with the heifers returning from 312c to also 434c/kg. Yearling steers to the trade sold from 368c to 420c with similar heifers making from 340c to 410c/kg. Feeder steers were again sought after as they made

from 355c to 423c with feeder heifers selling from 280c to 412c/kg. Restockers operated here on steers from 401c to 427c and on heifers from 356c to 398c/kg. Grown steers and bullocks were small in number as they ranged from 340c to 385c to the trade with feeder interest from 370c to 408c as grown heifers returned from 302c to 388c and manufacturing steers sold to 254c/kg. Heavy cows remained firm in price as they ranged from mainly 278c to 305c with a high of 324c in an isolated sale as the lighter selection ranged from 240c to 265c to the trade with feeder support from 265c to 289c/kg. Heavy bulls returned from 235c to 285c with light weights to a restocker selling to 358c/kg.

Shame, shame, shame... I watched one of the most shameful examples of journalism that I’ve ever seen on the news last week; even worse than the rubbish I write in this article each week. I saw two individuals treated in a horrific way on the National News, humiliated and shamed in a way that was completely unfair. You may have also seen the report on Wang Wang and Fu Ni’s recent breeding season. I won’t even waste time telling you that Wang Wang and Fu Ni are the pandas at the Adelaide Zoo, because you already know that. I know we all want them to have a little cub, but I don’t think it needs to be reported on our evening news. That seems like unnecessary

pressure to me. When those of you who have kids were trying to have children, would you have wanted your progress reported on the news? I certainly wouldn’t have. I’m sure there would have been words like, “ineptitude” and “incompetency” being thrown around. And to be fair, Donna was doing her best and that would have been completely unfair on her; she was just lucky that I was so virile. Apart from the fact Wang Wang and Fu Ni’s breeding was being reported at all, the presenter made it worse by being factually incorrect saying, “Like many Australian couples, isolation has helped rekindle Fu Ni and Wang Wang’s relationship.” I’m not at all convinced she can back that up with statistics. I would suggest the quarantining has led to more divorces than rekindlings. My relationship was at its best before we were married when Donna was out working most nights, and I was coaching sport the other nights of the week. It’s hard to argue when you never see each other. Being confined to our house more, particularly with two agitating characters added, certainly didn’t rekindle anything other than the desire to sell someone to the gypsies. The zookeeper also made some pretty ridiculous statements that had me wondering whether they are part of the reason that we haven’t heard the pitter patter of little panda paws. This person, who presumably was trained in panda behaviour and breeding commented, “The reproductive

specialist couldn’t fly over to help with breeding. This has been a real first for Adelaide Zoo that we’ve been able to try natural mating. In previous years the focus has been on artificial insemination.” The pandas have been at the zoo since 2009. Presumably pandas have been managing to breed independent of human involvement for hundreds and thousands of years. At some point in the last eleven years, no one thought, “Why don’t we let ‘em have a go at it themselves?”My feeling is that the extent of human involvement should go no further than lighting the candles, putting on some Marvin Gaye, dimming the lights and then giving them a little privacy. To be honest, the more the zookeeper spoke, the more concerned I became. “We’ve been able to try natural mating this year which has been an amazing thing to watch what’s

occurred over the last five days.” It’s probably time to think about getting a hobby. Can someone tell this guy that movie theatres are back open again, he can go to the pub if he wants and the AFL finals have kicked off so we better enjoy that while we can. Sitting around watching pandas breed is just creepy. Things went from bad to worse when the presenter queried, “How long is their breeding window and what happens during that time?” She really should have done a little bit of research…but even without research she should have a reasonable understanding. You know, when a mummy panda loves a daddy panda very much… The zookeeper did share some knowledge that had me feel like maybe pandas are my spirit animal. “Unfortunately for giant pandas they have one very narrow window each year and it’s between 36 and 72 hours that they’re receptive to

each other. So just one attempt each year.” I’m not even sure that Donna is receptive to me for that long each year. I’d describe that as a really good year at my house. It went down hill again after that. Mr Zookeeper stated, “Whilst they (Wang Wang and Fu Ni) did spend five days together, and there were a number of attempts at mating, there wasn’t successful mating.” Poor Wang Wang has to be feeling pretty humiliated at this point. Attempts at mating?! They had poor Wang Wang in the background of the interview and while he was giving the appearance of nonchalantly chewing on his bamboo, he must have been feeling pretty shamed. Some final thoughts for all involved. Would you want to breed in a glass room with everyone watching? Has anyone considered the possibility that either Wang Wang or Fu Ni may be gay or lesbian…or one of the other letters in LGBTQIA+? Or what about the possibility that they just don’t really want children? Maybe they just want to be able to scoot off to the Barossa for weekends without worrying about car seats and portacots. Does everyone have to have children to meet society’s expectations of the way life is meant to play out? At least it’s taken my attention off of the whole Tim Tam debacle for a few minutes. If you’ve got any suggestions for what may help Wang Wang get his mojo back, email me at robbietansel@gmail.com

The City of Mount Gambier is supporting eligible community event organisers with signage and cleaning packages up to the value of $1000 to continue to host events during the COVID-19 pandemic in accordance with SA Health guidelines. For any activity where more than 1000 people will gather, SA Health requires a COVID Management plan be submitted and approved by the department. For an activity where less than 1000 people will be present, a COVID safe plan outlining measures to keep staff and patrons safe and minimise the risk of spreading infectious diseases must be lodged. “While these plans are necessary in this climate, additional financial requirements to provide appropriate signage, cleaning and hygiene products can discourage small groups and clubs from running their annual events,” City of Mount Gambier events officer Xarnia Keding said. The contents of each support package varies in accordance with specific event requirements. "Council will provide corflute signs and vinyl banners reminding people to socially distance, practice good hygiene and wash their hands. These will be reused at each event," Mrs Keding “The packs can also include portable toilets, automatic hand sanitiser dispensers, masks, wipes, hand towels, bin liners, gloves and soap.” The BMX SA 2020 Championships was held at the Blue Lake BMX clubat the end of last month, with more than 350 riders and about 1000 people converging on the track. “We had been working on hosting the championship for the last 18 months but with the COVID outbreak it was beginning to look very difficult,” Blue Lake BMX Club president Stephen Jones (pictured above) said. "The council event package has really been the difference between running the event and not running the event. The Blue Lake BMX Club is a not for profit organisation and the cost of extra signage, toilets, sanitising and cleaning equipment would simply mean the money made from the event to help the club grow would simply be lost in trying to purchase extra equipment." The Inside Line Downhill Mountain Bike Club also made use of an event support package at its State Series event which will be held at the Crater Lakes last weekend. "It’s great to know the City of Mount Gambier is committed to helping us deliver a safe event. It is a generous and valuable package,” Inside Line Downhill Mountain Bike Club committee member Carrie Parton said. Council’s support for local events is aligned to the three pillars of the ‘Our City, Our Response’ COVID-19 action plan. The event support packages follow Council’s decision in April 2020 to endorse the payment of part or all sponsorship funding for events where a commitment was made before the pandemic. The event support packages are available to Council sponsored events by application. For further information, please contact the City of Mount Gambier Events team on (08)8725 4461.

Mount Gambier Pioneers add their star power to Limestone Coast Regional Sporting Academy The Mount Gambier Pioneers are the latest major sporting organisation to join forces with the Limestone Coast Regional Sporting Academy (LCRSA). Having the firepower of the city’s only national sporting franchise getting hands on with the academy is a huge coup for the academy, that already has close ties with elite tennis, athletics and cycling programs, as well as catering for Lone Star athletes, which is basically athletes from any sport. All athletes are able to access elite strength and conditioning programs, as well as education sessions but with the Pioneers coming on board as program partners, there will also be basketball specific skill sessions on offer. There are currently 65 athletes taking advantage of all the academy has to offer and the new basketball program will be availed to up to 20 athletes. “The LCRSA is committed to providing local athletes with the opportunity to achieve excellence in sport and life,’ LCRSA coordinator Tony Elletson. “The Pioneers Basketball Club is an institution that also fosters excellence which is why we are so pleased they have chosen to partner with us. There is enormous talent in regional areas, and this program helps athletes realise that

talent. Athletes that do not live in the metro area face many hurdles in achieving their sporting goals. The academy is working towards removing some of these hurdles for not only the athletes but the families as well.” The partnership with the Pioneers will see those hurdles removed for local basketball talent. “The Pioneers are going to provide the athletes with specialised elite coaching that will enhance and develop their talent,” Tony said. “We look forward to supporting these athletes, along with the Pioneers to hopefully achieve their goals in the sport. The opportunity to partner with the regions premier sporting organisation is extremely exciting. This is the programs first chance to offer an elite local pathway for Limestone Coast athletes and families” Pioneers Basketball Club board

member Darryl Starick said the club was very excited to be able to partner with the LCRSA to build a legacy of excellence in basketball throughout the Limestone Coast by providing a pathway for elite programs by developing talent, professionalism, leadership and passion. “We also see this as a great opportunity for the Pioneers and the LCRSA to build a strong connection with the local Limestone Coast Basketball Associations and State Programs to further strengthen participation, collaboration, growth and sustainability to position basketball as an attractive sport in the local communities,” he said. Applications are now open for the program for all athletes and close on Friday, October 30. Applications can be found at the Academy website - https:// www.lclga.sa.gov.au/limestonecoast-regional-sporting-academy/ programs/tennis-program or you can contact Academy Coordinator Tony Elletson 0400 262 738. Pioneers championship captain and women’s program head coach Matt Sutton (pictured) has been front and centre of developing the partnership and he will give us his thoughts on how the program will benefit local basketballers in next week’s Lifestyle1.

Attamurra ladies raise funds for breast cancer A sea of pink could be seen on the Attamurra course last Wednesday when forty ladies donned in pink played in the popular annual “Pink Ball” day stableford competition in supporting people with breast cancer. The format of play was a three person team event with one player on each hole using a pink ball with that mandatory points score to be added to the best of the other two scores for that hole. After 18 holes, the winning team of Jan Shanahan, Faye Mainwaring and Vicki Clarke combined well to finish with 76 points, and one shot further back for the runner up prize were Hope Bliss, Gail Stephenson and Chris Morrison with 75 points. Third placegetters with 73 points on a countback were Heather Barry, Anne Headlam and Janina Morrison. Ball run down winners were Gloria Lennon, Heather Chapman, Yvonne Shirley, Kerry Pedlar, Bev Pedlar, Lyn Hudson, Sue Coulter, Sharran Waters and Julie Robinson. Faye Mainwaring claimed the pro shot prize on the 8th hole while nearest the pin with their second shot on the 10th was won by Kerry Pedlar and Janina Morrison.

BREAST CANCER DONAT: Faye Mainwaring, committee representative from the local Breast Cancer Awareness Group receives a cheque for $660 from President, Lyn Hudson following the Pink Day at Attamurra. To complement the day, ladies supplied pink afternoon tea and raffles were held with funds going to the very active Breast Cancer Awareness group who support local breast cancer patients and families with their ongoing recovery. Lady president Lyn Hudson was thrilled to announce that $660 had been raised through

raffles, donations, and cakes sales and presented her cheque to Faye Mainwaring, committee person for the local Breast Cancer Awareness Group at the end of the day. The next important event will be the Ladies Open Day which includes the South East Ladies Championship to be played this Friday.

Baseball kicks off for the 2020/21 season this weekend in a season that sees Millicent return to the division one competition and new president Michael Summers is excited that action is returning to the district’s diamonds. With the 2019/20 season halted by COVID in the middle of the finals series, Summers is hopeful things will more closely resemble normal transmission for this summer’s action. “Obviously last year’s season was cut short in finals so we ended up playing our normal round robin, but our finals were cut short so this year everyone’s looking forward to a bit more normality,” Summers said. “There’s not many restrictions in the game of baseball so it’s more having players wear their own helmets and all that sort of stuff, so it’s not too bad the restrictions when it comes to baseball. “We’re just looking forward to kicking off on the 10th of October.” Summers said he was also excited to see what Millicent, whio have picked up a swag of division two titles, can do in the top division. “Millicent have come in for the first time in about five years to the division one,” he said. “They’ve been premiers the last couple of years in division two, so they’ve stepped up now. “They’ve got a young team full of vigour and ready to go so they’re pretty keen to push the A grade again.

ROSANGELA 0419 366 649

“They’ve got some good players like Darcy Pink (pictured), he’s going to be their head coach. He had a taste of division one last year with Federal and they’ve got some good up and coming kids coming through. “They should be very competitive come division one. We haven’t got an issue at all with them stepping up. “It’s just good for the Millicent region to have a division one baseball team that the spectators can go and watch every second week. They’ll have a home game down at Bolton Oval, so it’ll be good to see as many spectators as we can down there.” Thankfully, COVID-19 and the cancelled finals have not scared off local baseballers, with junior numbers once again quite high. “Juniors is still pretty strong. We’ve got about 15 junior teams again this year, that’s looking healthy,” Summers said.

SPORT The perfect foundation Little Athletics recruiting for 2020/21 season When it comes to running, jumping and throwing, there is no better breeding ground than Little Athletics and the Mount Gambier Little Athletics Centre is recruiting for its 2020/21 season with a registration day this Sunday. Hosted at Mount Gambier High School on the rear oval, the registration day will run from 10am to 12noon targeting kids from four years old to come and try. The centre also has a new president with Adrian Lynch passing the baton to Mick Ellis. A small group of athletes has also been training at Marist Park in the winter. Family, fitness and fun is the catchcry of the Little Athletics program and the local centre, where long time athletics coach Sally Taylor is in charge, caters for all ages and abilities, ranging from beginners just looking to stay active to national standard athletes who head to State and national meets. The season officially kicks off on October 16 and is every Friday night from 4.30pm. The Tiny Tots program caters for the Under 5 kids and then there are age groups right through to Under 17s with training opportunities still on offer for senior athletes. “It is a great foundation sport for all other sports,” pout-going president Adrian Lynch said. “The running and jumping is really helpful and the throwing teaches the hand-eye coordination needed for sports like netball and football as well.” Over the past three years, the Mount Gambier centre has attracted around 150 kids to the athletics program and organisers are hopeful that will again be the case for the 2020/21 season. New president Mick Ellis said families did not even have to wait for registration day but could head straight to the Little Athletics SA website and follow the links to register. For any enquiries contact Mick Ellis on 0422 214 781.

They’re off and racing The Mount Gambier Harness Racing Club 020/21 season kicks off on Tuesday, October 13. With the Victorian border still closed, the club is making do with what it has and teaming up with the Port Pirie club in order to create a night of racing. Mount Gambier Harness Racing Club president Simon Phillips was optimistic about getting started. “Our races while borders are closed will be in conjunction with the Port Pirie club,” he said. “It’ll be every Tuesday fortnight until the end of the year and we’ll take it in turn with whose races go first. “This first meeting Port Pirie will start first and our racing will start around 7.30pm to 8pm and we are more than likely going to have three races, possibly four depending on numbers, I’d say early days there’s going to be three races because there’s still a fair few horses not ready to race yet. “There will be things like the pony races which we’ll do before the races and also some trials from around the 6pm mark. “Usually we rely on 20 to 25

horses from over the border to race at our meeting. “With that shut, we wouldn’t get a standalone meeting because we’ll get little support from Adelaide in regards to the trainers coming down here, we don’t get much support from the trainers up there.” Phillips added that things will look a little different for those in attendance, but there will still be plenty on offer. “We’ll be making sure we’ll be following COVID restrictions. We haven’t finalised (our plan) yet,” he said. “It looks like what will happen is the general public will be able to enter off of Jubilee Highway and the participants, owners, trainers,

stable hands, will be entering off the Pick Avenue gate. “There is (a limit on crowd capacity), but it depends on how many stable hands you have … it’s still all getting worked out and will be worked out in the next couple of days. “It’ll be initially free entry subject to borders opening. Once we’re back up and running there’ll be an entry fee. “There’ll be bar facilities, some food – but we’re not going to open up the canteens how we usually do in the short term – but we’ll have food available. “There’ll be a bookmaker on course, but no TAB operators. We’ll still have a bookmaker there to take cash.”

Tight racing in small field Stylish & tough Motorkhana event wraps up 2020 series The South Eastern Automobile Club held a Motorkhana at the Mount Gambier Saleyards complex late last month to complete the 2020 Series. A disappointing small field of 16 faced the starter for the day. Ken Trimnell and Kevin Raedell managed to put the event together in a very short time frame, jumping all of the hurdles put in place to ensure a COVID safe event. Assuming the driver’s seat, Trimnell had the Yellow Swift in full flight at the first event and picked up fastest time for both the runs at Straight Slalom. Damien Wilson, fresh from his run at Mallala the previous weekend was right on Trimnell’s back bumper, close by followed by Ryan Poel, who was having a go at Motorkhana for his first outing since having the Subaru checked over. Danielle Wiseman also had a good run in the first round in the “new” Tiida to get home in fourth spot, but could not repeat it in the second run with Phil Wilson pinching fourth spot with a clean round. The next test layout, Forward and Reverse Slalom, saw Trimnell continue with the fastest time on both runs. He was again pushed hard by, firstly, the Wilson brothers and then Tristan Crowe got into the act with less than a second between all four. “Hopkirk” was the layout for the third test and it caught out a few, hitting cones as they turned. The tightness of the competition meant a five second penalty was huge. Phil Wilson’s raw time reflected his excellent car control, but when a cone penalty was incurred, he slipped a couple of spots. Damien Wilson, having had some recent practice in Adelaide, took fastest times for both runs with Phil Wilson close in the first run and Tristan Crowe in the second. Continuing with the reversing theme, “Paddy” had been selected for the fourth test. Showing his skill in the big soarer, Phil Wilson took both runs with good reversing control speed. Brother Damien and Trimnell could not catch him and Tristan Crowe had the Commodore working well for third points, just

behind by a second each time. More reversing with Test 5 set up as “Reverse Garage” as the Wilson brothers shared the honours, with Phil first in Run 1 from Damien, and then the reverse result on Run 2 with Damien posting a better time on the second run to head Ryan Poel and, with these two separated by 6/100ths for second and third. Trimnell scored a cone penalty on this run, dropping his quick time by five seconds to end up in fourth spot. Layout 6 saw “Opposite Garages” set for the challenge. Phil Wilson took the lollies for Run 1, from Damien by 14/100ths of a second, with Trimnell another half a second behind. Run 2 and Damien Wilson got home with fastest run time of 30.23, from Tristan Crowe’s 30.52 for second and Trimnell again third with a time of 30.71 seconds. The 7th Layout was “Reverse Spiro Slalom” and Phil Wilson kept the crowd enthralled with two excellent runs rewarded with fastest times. The first run time of 35.91 was enough to hold off a challenge by Damien at 37.88 and a very tidy drive by James Masters for third with a 40.62 and Ryan Poel at 41.29. On Run 2 Phil bettered his first run to stop the clock at 35.10 to just pip Tristan Crowe’s 35.66 and Trimnell’s 36.17. Saving the best for last, “Spiro Slalom” gave all the drivers a forward only run. Using the huge power available, Phil scorched around the open test to get another pair of fastest times with his runs of 26.65 and 26.60 showing good consistency. Ryan Poel also turned the power switch on and chased Wilson’s time at 26.93 just pipping Damien Wilson with a 26.95 for Run 1. Run 2 and Phil Wilson at 26.60 was just in front of Damien with 26.68 and Poel with 27.16. At the end of the day, the cone penalty hurt Phil Wilson’s excellent day by 10 seconds leaving the top step on the podium to Damien Wilson with his clean day’s total of 493.64. Phil had to settle for cecond spot with the total of 500.43 seconds, still well clear of another clean sheet run of Tristan Crowe with his tally of

530.81 for third, enough to head Ken Trimnell’s 532.09 for fourth outright. Struggling with the Auto Magna all day, Geoff Wilson had enough cone penalties to line a highway, but got home in fifth spot with a penalty included total of 584.89 seconds. Having his first drive in many years, James Masters drove well all day and his tally of 596.43 seconds gave him the points for sixth outright, just heading a late charge from Ryan Poel with his 608.55 seconds enough to hold off a very well driven Magna in the ever-improving Sarah Coates, stopping the clock at 615.32 for eighth outright. Russell Fisk had a consistent day’s outing in the Hyundai and tallied up at 622.21 seconds for ninth spot points and John Whitehead rounding out the outright Top 10 with a total of 638.40 seconds. As always things change when the all important Hhandicap system was implemented with the results changing somewhat. Phil Wilson comes out on top on handicap, with Damien back to second spot. Tristan Crowe held onto third, Trimnell fourth and Geoff Wilson fifth. Sarah Coates climbed up to sixth spot with Russell Fisk also moving up to be ranked seventh. James Masters slid back to eighth, John Whitehead up one spot to ninth and Ryan Poel down three spots to 10th. Class Points were scored by: Class B: Russell Fisk Class C: Damien Wilson Class D: Phil Wilson Class E: James Masters Class L: Sarah Coates October is quite a busy month for SEAC with a double header at SEAC Park on the long weekend and setting up and running the huge Legends of the Lakes at the picturesque Valley Lakes at the end of October.

Brand-New Mazda BT-50 arrives in the South East

The Brand-New Mazda BT-50 has rolled into the South East bringing modern safety systems, stylish aesthetics and tough capability to the Dual Cab Utility segment. Available to test drive at OGR Mazda and Wickham Flower, this third-generation Mazda BT-50 combines Mazda’s famed Kodo design language with the strength, durability and efficiency demanded by today’s Dual Cab Utility owner. Brand-New Mazda BT-50 Dual Cab’s impressive active safety suite, enhanced connectivity features and modern-day engineering offer around $3,500 of added customer value across the range. A choice of 4x2 and 4x4 drivetrains, smooth six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmissions and Dual Cab Chassis or Dual Cab Pickups will be offered across three trim levels: XT, ruggedly stylish XTR and highlyspecified GT. Powering the Brand-New Mazda BT-50 is a turbocharged 3.0-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine that generates 140kW peak power along with 450Nm torque, the latter provided from 1,600 to 2,600rpm for exceptional pulling power. A thorough vehicle weight saving program has reduced weight by around 50kg (model dependent) over the predecessor model and this, combined with the responsive new engine, has led to impressive fuel efficiency gains of

around 20 per cent. When combined with Mazda’s renowned Service Select program that has reduced scheduled service pricing over the predecessor, Brand-New BT-50’s running costs are significantly enhanced. Brand-New Mazda BT-50 also majors on connectivity, with an impressive new touchscreen infotainment system plus phonemirroring technologies including wireless Apple CarPlay® and wired Android Auto™, so you can stay connected when you’re on the road. Bryce Roberts from OGR Mazda said the Brand-New Mazda BT-50 is the complete package, equally capable of playing weekday workhorse and weekend warrior. “Brand-New Mazda BT-50 combines style, capability and safety like no other Utility before,” said Bryce Roberts. “Its class-leading safety systems stand out, but in combination with the cutting-edge Kodo design, well-appointed interior and incredibly durable and responsive drivetrain packages, Brand-New BT-50 is lifted to the next level.” Brand-New Mazda BT-50 comes standard with Mazda’s five-year unlimited kilometre warranty and five-year Mazda Premium Roadside Assistance. Brand-New Mazda BT-50 is on sale now, starting at $44,090 for the XT Dual Cab Chassis 4x2 variant.
