Places, Faces and Spaces A new year brings new people to Mawson Lakes and along with them come their children, their dogs, new businesses and the interesting and innovative jobs they do. MLL/January wants to introduce you to new faces, Linda and Nigella new places and new spaces in our expanding suburb, so in this issue you’ll learn how the biggest defence firm in the world is developing the brains for the Australian Navy’s twelve new submarines here in Mawson Lakes. See page 5. Then move on to page 12 and read how our library spaces and habits are changing.

An eye on the advertisements will inform you of new businesses and what they have to offer you. As the editor, I strive to keep you informed about your suburb, to be the voice of our community and a reflection of what you are thinking and doing. And I like to celebrate the things that make our place so good to live in and what makes us proud and connected. On this note, I send warmest congratulations to the Mawson Lakes Model Yacht Club who recently had a great win - a first for SA. Read about it on page 27. Keep cool in summer and read Nigella's notes on how to keep your pooch cool too.

Community Conversations

have your say...

Theft of parking spaces Outside the Mawson Centre is a small parking area set aside for community parking. It is called ML15 Car Park. It is for community members who want to use the Mawson Centre, the library, visit a JP, attend community classes etc. The problem is that during uni terms the students steal the spaces. Students are meant to park in student parking lots but they see the ML15 plot as free parking and it seems they get away with it. During uni terms the carpark is full. Many times I have been looking for a parking spot to go into the library and I see motorists get out of their cars and walk over to the uni. Residents have complained and complained to the assets manager at the uni and to the council community coordinator and to our council representatives but the problem persists. This issue needs a permanent solution. Mark Barrymore

better maintenance of the landscape around the big lake and along Dry Creek, cleaner streets in the shopping centre, graffiti removed quickly, removal of sludge and overgrowth from the creek, control of bird populations, path lighting to and from the interchange ... to name a few. Trish Clarkson

Noise Noise is the biggest problem we have with Mawson Lakes. I live in an apartment in Light Common above the shops where rubbish is thrown on the streets and noise from the shop's clientele keeps us awake almost every night of the week. When Chatime closes at 10pm the hoons get in their cars and hang around the town streets, racing up and down with their radios blaring and blowing their horns. It can go on till midnight. Council and police have been informed but I see no improvements. Gordon Reynolds

Parking at the Railway Station Thank you SA Police for doing something about the atrocious parking at the Mawson Lakes Railway Station. You couldn't even drive out of there some days! Cars were parked all over the yellow lines and motorcycle spots. Some were half in the gardens! Very satisfying to see those parked illegally receive tickets! Beatrice

Spending rate payers' money In my block of 50 units we each pay about $1200 in council rates. That’s $60,000 per year. For this we expect better services from the council. We don’t want this money used for a community hub, instead we need a car parking station at the interchange, more garbage bins and public seating, full doggie bag dispensers (empty again this morning), cultural events for the community, 4

Poo bags Dog walkers, it is your responsibility to carry enough bags when walking your dog. Freezer bags are inexpensive and lightweight and you won’t even know you’re carrying them. You don’t even have to carry the bag yourself, just peg it to the dog’s leash until you reach a rubbish bin. Lesley Nicol Bad road On Saturdays I drop my husband off at the Mawson Lakes Golf Club. The state of the road in and out from the Boulevard is an absolute disgrace! In winter it is muddy and full of huge potholes and in summer it is all swirling dust. There is one tiny strip of bitumen from the Boulevard entrance to the beginning of the football/cricket club and then nothing but dirt. Who can make the upgrade? Emily Bean

Building the brains of a submarine Submarine photo courtesy of Lockheed Martin

General Manager of Lockheed Martin Australia Rotary and Missions Systems, Jack Mahoney, speaking to Mawson Lakes Living, said Australia's Future Submarine Program is a long term project that will spread over 20 to 30 years.

Situated in Mawson Lakes is Lockheed Martin Australia, a wholly Australian subsidiary of the world’s leading global security and aerospace company, Lockheed Martin Corporation. A large number of the Australian workforce are based in Technology Park, where they will focus on Australia’s largest post-war defence capital program to fit the integrated combat systems into Australia’s new submarines. The job will involve delivering the combat computer systems that connect all the different components of a submarine so they work together. This means sensors such as sonar, communications, navigation and weapons, and it includes torpedoes and missiles. The combat systems will be fitted to all 12 new navy submarines being built at Port Adelaide in partnership with ¬ Defence Industries and the French company Naval Group.

"Building a submarine is one of the most complex engineering tasks in the world." Lockheed Martin is centrally positioned in Mawson Lakes to enable it to collaborate with universities and other electronic and software engineers working in defence companies, many of them in Mawson Lakes. The defence industry is expanding rapidly and Lockheed Martin has doubled in size in Mawson Lakes in the last twelve months and will be increasing its operations and its workforce to approximately 200. This will mean a demand for housing and facilities in the local area. Skilling a workforce is a priority to meet future demand. "We are investing in the education of students who show aptitude in STEM subjects through training opportunities, scholarships and engineering in the classroom. There are long-term, high-paying career paths in this and expanding industry," advised Mr Mahoney. Ed Please mention Mawson Lakes Living when responding to ads


Community Conversations continued from page 4 Thriving magazine All the signs of a thriving community magazine are evident in Mawson Lakes Living, with different writers adding engaging stories, a wide range of community comments, a host of local advertisers, and contributions from kids to retirees. Wonderful reading. We want to continue being part of this dynamic publication in 2018. Tony Franklin, Brain Solutions. Killer dogs Just a suburb away, three little chihuahua dogs were mauled and killed last month when a Staffordshire bull terrier jumped his fence and attacked the three dogs. The bull terrier was taken away to be destroyed but the question remains, why are aggressive fighting dogs allowed to live in residential suburbs? I live in fear when I walk my dog that one of these dangerous breeds will go for us. Perhaps Neighbourhood Watch could tell us how to protect our suburb from dangerous breeds that are often in the news for their aggressive acts. Henrietta Pritash Encumbrances Encumbrances are a set of obligations between a landowner and the developers who sold the property. Debra Cane raised the issue on page 6 in MLL/Oct. The $43M that council plans to spend on a new hub would be far better spent engaging with the useless Minister Brock, the Local Government Association and other affected local councils to work towards ensuring local councils take over the management of all developer encumbrances after the sunset clause has come into effect. This calls for employing vigilant officers and empowered inspectors to make sure that landowners look after their properties, verges, garbage, legal parking on their properties etc. Leslie Hoggan Expiry of encumbrances The encumbrance that is registered on properties within Mawson Lakes is to the 6

Land Management Authority and provides certain obligations on this authority and land owners. The encumbrance was administered through Delfin Lend Lease. The obligations of the encumbrancer to administer and enforce the Mawson Lakes encumbrance ceased on 1 January 2015. In the sunset clause, the encumbrance did not transfer to Council. Council has no authority to enforce the encumbrance. It is noted that the encumbrance remains in place, however, as there is no nominated enforcement body, any alleged breach is a civil matter between property owners. Chris Zafiropoulos, Manager, City of Salisbury Development Services Verge cutting program Some of the verges in my street are so overrun with high-growing weeds that you cannot walk along the footpath, so I rang the council and this is what I found. Council provides a regular maintenance program to all of the verge areas across the City Of Salisbury. The program operates on a 6 week cycle from February to December. Council's contractors mow to a height of 75mm, whipper snip, and blow off the driveways and footpaths. Due to the high risk of damage to vehicles, the contractors will not work on the verge if a car is parked along the kerb. Proud residents can develop or landscape their own verge area in accordance with council guidelines. For details go to council's website. M Auburn

Terms and conditions apply.

Keeping your cool this summer The prediction is that SA will have more heatwaves that last longer. Extreme heat is when temperatures are hotter than 35°C. The official definition of a heatwave is five The signs of heat-related conditions include: • sweating heavily • having a temperature • being tired and lethargic • having little appetite • being thirsty • being irritable • twitching or having painful muscle cramps in the arms, legs or abdomen If you, or someone you know, is showing these signs and feeling unwell: • Stop what you are doing, go to a cool, shaded place and lie down • Drink plenty of water or other fluids, avoiding caffeine and alcohol • Create an air flow with a fan or an air-conditioner, put a cool damp towel around your neck, spray cool water on your skin or have a cool shower • Use massage to ease any spasms or cramps, then use ice packs. • If still unwell after taking these steps, seek medical advice as soon as possible.

consecutive days at or above 35°C In these conditions our body may not be able to cool down and it is easy to become overheated and dehydrated.

THE THONG SONG The song of a thong is a flip, flap flong that echoes wherever you go. There aren’t any places for silly old laces but a thing that holds onto your toe. You’re flapping and tapping with feet overlapping and people who watch will agree that the song of a thong when you’re flopping along is of feet that are born to be FREE.

Rare goose visits Mawson Lakes Sitting on the grass outside Technology Park we spotted a rare Cape Barren Goose, identified it by its grey colour, greenish-yellow skin above a black bill, pink to deep red legs and black feet. These birds which mate for life are amongst the rarest of the world’s geese, and are native to Australia’s islands offshore from South Eastern Victoria and Southern Western Australia coastlines. Their ability to drink salt or brackish water allows them to remain on offshore islands all year round. Their name is derived from the first sightings centuries ago at Cape Barren Island in Bass Straight. By the 1950s numbers were so low that biologists feared they may be close to extinction. Programs are now in place to increase their numbers. The geese were introduced to Kangaroo Island and some do visit the mainland towards the end of summer looking for food when the natural grasses on the islands dry up.

Metamorphosis of university libraries

University libraries have often been associated with quiet places and diligent students pouring over books. But that image is changing. The Sir Eric Neal Library of University of South Australia, located in Mawson Lakes, is seeing a grand metamorphosis – one that involves embracing a more electronic outlook. Ann Morgan, manager of academic library services at UniSA said the library has been working over the last ten years to change its image. "We wanted to move from a place of quiet to a place where students can congregate with their peers to work on projects," she said.

"Today, our print collection in the library at Mawson Lakes is less than 50,000. But approximately a million titles are available electronically."


Mawson Lakes Living : Issue 127 - January 2018

"When one borrows a print book it becomes unavailable to others for at least two months. With an electronic title, multiple clients can access it at once. As well, there are no late fees to be charged. After the stipulated time, the electronic books simply disappear from a person’s personal online library. Also, people living away from Mawson Lakes do not have to travel to return books. It all happens seamlessly in the online environment. These steps provide students with greater accessibility and freedom for research." The changes were implemented after observing student-library behaviour. "We had a look at the materials that were being borrowed and found that students, increasingly, weren’t borrowing print items. The books were just gathering dust. On the other hand, our expenditure for electronic resources and the usage of the same by students were skyrocketing. Thus, it made sense to invest more in electronic resources," said Ann.

Real Estate in Mawson Lakes Mawson Lakes may not have been around for long, (about 20 years) but it’s made a huge impression and enjoys profitable growth. European settlers founded a sheep station here in 1877 in an area known as The Levels. In 1997 there were still a few sheep around. Then, in 1998, residential Mawson Lakes was born. Today the suburb is a hub for innovative technology with a growing residential population and a host of commercial and professional services. The beautiful green parklands and easy lifestyle interposed with schools, universities and a hub of innovative technology makes Mawson Lakes a sought after suburb. Its central location in Adelaide is a drawcard for big business such as Codan and Lockheed Martin. Now is a good time to own your own piece of property. Here are some agents who can help you find a place to suit your needs.

Children’s feet are vital for their health and wellbeing. They are still developing and need to withstand a lifetime of activities. Ensuring your children are wearing an appropriate school shoe is a great start to looking after your child’s feet. Children spend about 6 hours per day, 5 days a week in their school shoes. During this time they are standing, walking, climbing, playing games and running around with their friends. They need a shoe which will protect their feet and enable years of fun. Use of poor or inappropriate shoes may worsen existing conditions or even cause foot and leg pain. I would suggest a well-fitting enclosed shoe which offers support, non-slip sole and laces or a buckle to hold the foot in the shoe. Things to consider when fitting school shoes:

• Prestige home cleaning • General home cleaning • Move out cleans

A good fit, including both width and length (measured while child is standing)

Never buy shoes too big for child so they can grow in to them. They need to fit well now.

Try on both shoes and never wear hand-me-down shoes. You don’t need someone else’s foot problems.

Contact us on 8262 9999 if you have any concerns about your child’s foot health.

Raising awareness about men’s health When policeman Derrick McManus was shot 14 times in a siege in the Barossa Valley, he was determined not to die as the blood poured out of him and he waited for help for three hours. Two decades later and after many operations, Derrick is an inspirational speaker who told his story of survival to a spellbound audience at a seminar on Men’s Health in Mawson Lakes. His message was that we all face challenges and the best way to perform under pressure is with emotional stability. "To achieve this you need to prepare mentally for any situation and anticipate how you will deal with it before it happens, rather than reacting with emotion. You need to have serious conversations with yourself about the worst consequences and the decisions you will make when a critical moment confronts you."

"We too often make bad decisions and do stupid stuff when we act in a highly emotional state." - Derrick McManus Inspirational speakers: Craig Ickle, Derrick McManus and Scott Boocock


Mawson Lakes Living : Issue 127 - January 2018

Derrick was part of a panel of inspirational speakers that included Professor Roger Davies who talked about the significance of lifestyle on health, and Craig Ickle from Cardio Flex who advised that fitness and training is fun and good for health, but working-out needs to be tempered with time out to allow for rest and recovery. Humorous entrepreneur of Hegs Pegs, Scott Boocock, explained how he turned a simple idea for a better peg into a multi-million dollar industry. He encouraged the audience with the words, "no matter how simple your idea, believe in yourself, give it a go and find mentors who can help you bring it to market. Don’t be afraid of negative feedback because this can show you ways to improve your idea." The breakfast function at the Watershed was a fundraising event organised by Beau Brug for the Movember Foundation, a charity committed to raising awareness about men’s health. Keep an eye on Mawson Lakes Living for other upcoming seminars.

Last year SA hosted 4500 international delegates for the International Astronautical Congress, including local astronaut Dr Andy Thomas. We’ve formed the South Australian Space Industry Centre that supports local companies to collaborate with international partners, driving investment and creating highly skilled jobs. The Federal Government will soon release its review into Australia’s space industry capability and will establish an Australian Space Agency with South Australia ideally positioned to be its industrial hub. Our aim is to capture a greater share of the $420 billion annual global space revenue stream, an industry that is growing at nearly 10 per cent per annum. We are home to some of the most innovative companies in the world and I will continue to lobby to cement Mawson Lakes as the centre of South Australia’s industrial universe. We should be proud of our rich space history and optimistic about the decades ahead. If you’d like to talk about our plans for the space industry or other issues then feel free to call.

7 tips for your child's first day at school First days at school are anxious times, especially for parents, so prepare well beforehand for a smooth transition by following these suggestions



Lay out the uniform and practice several times putting it on, especially coping with shoes, buttons and bows.


Practice using the school crossing. What do the signals mean? What if there is no monitor on duty?


Label ALL school items. They all look the same, cost a lot and you want to get yours back.


Build muscles in your child's hands and fingers before school by playing with lego, blocks, play dough, pegs. "Come and help mummy hang out the washing," builds dexterity with hands.

Know the school’s nude policy when it comes to food containers. Practice opening lunchbox containers and keep the contents simple and healthy. Don't mollycoddle. Don’t make your child feel they are deserting you or upsetting you by going to school. Instead show pride that they are growing up. Allow your beginner to carry their own school bag. At the end of the day talk about what went well. Hopefully it all went well and the only tears were yours (out of sight)! Dr Linda Vining is a Fellow of the Australian College of Educators.

Keeping cool in summer

by Nigella

I really don’t like summer. Early morning walks and late evening outings are nice but mummy leaves me at home a lot in summer for fear of the heat. I love an outing but urban pavements and black bitumen get very hot, and even in the evenings the roads can still be hot and the hot sand at the beach can burn a doggie’s feet. I wish I could throw on a pair of thongs when we go to the beach as our paws are sensitive and can easily burn.

Note to owners : Heatstroke is a life-threatening condition because we only perspire around our nose and paws which is not sufficient enough to cool our bodies. We pant to keep cool by evaporating moisture so we need cool air and water on a hot day or we are at risk of overheating.

We need special care in summer. Please don’t leave us outdoors. We need plenty of shade and shelter from the sun. Dogs can get skin cancer too, especially on the nose. Every summer my nose gets darker. It's nature’s way of putting more pigment into my skin to protect my face from sunburn, but it's possible to buy pet sunscreen. We must have clean, fresh water placed in the shade. Some of my friends like ice blocks in their water or frozen water bottles to lick. When walking we need more water than usual so take a doggie water container in summer.


Mawson Lakes Living : Issue 127 - January 2018

Do not leave us in a closed shed or garage with nowhere to escape the hot air . Never, ever, leave us in a car – the temperature inside will get very hot, very quickly and a dog can die within minutes. Walk us early in the morning or later in the day when the temperature has dropped but be aware that the pavements can still be hot. Don't leave our food outside in the heat – if not eaten straight away, cover it and put it in the fridge for later. If we are panting, sweating, weak or drooling it could indicate heat stress so: • Move us to a cool place, drape a cool wet towel over us or spray us with a bottle or the hose. Maintain air flow with a fan. • Give water – you may have to pour some into our mouth and pat our face with a cool wet cloth. • If overheated, stand us in water up to our belly. Myself, I like a bath under the hose on a really hot day. A short run to dry off is exhilarating when wet.

Mango Coconut Paddle Pops Summer is the season for mangoes so here's a healthy, super simple recipe to get you through the hot days. Without refined sugar and dairy free these fruity treats are so healthy you can eat them every day.

Ingredients 3 ripe mangoes 1 ripe banana ¾ cup coconut cream

½ cup desiccated coconut ½ cup coconut flakes 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup to sweeten if needed.

Method Peel mangoes, remove seed. Place mangoes in food processor with all remaining ingredients until smooth. Pour into moulds* and place a paddle pop stick in the centre of each mould, ¾ of the way down Place moulds in freezer overnight. * If you don't have paddle pop moulds use small plastic cups. Fill the cups with the mixture and place a stick in the middle. Be sure the sticks stay upright in the freezer. When ready to serve let the cups stand at room temperature for a short while, then just squeeze the cup to release the paddle pop.
