This week... From the editor I’ve spoken before about the appeal of minimalism. But what is it, exactly? I like to think there’s more to minimalism than turning your home upside down and throwing stuff out. I think it has a lot to do with being the architect of one’s own life. Starting from scratch and adding the important things back in, one by one. There’s so much white noise in the digital age that, sometimes, we forget we have a choice to live intentionally. It’s OK to trim the excess. To challenge social norms. To try something new. I recently listened to a TED Talk about co-housing, a Danish concept that involves families, couples and individuals living under the one roof. They usually live in separate apartments, but share communal spaces and meals together. Generally, these people are much happier because they feel socially connected. Another concept that challenges the Great Australian Dream of owning a family home behind a white picket fence, is the ‘tiny house’ movement. Our cover stars, Matthew Travis and Angela Foong, knew there had to be another way to have their cake and eat it too. So, they designed a compact home in Carrington, saving time, energy and money. Now, they live life on their terms, with children Zoe and Levi. That story on page 24. - Georgia Osland

news Codeine cut, calls to hospital spike Toronto Private Hospital has experienced a 25 to 30% increase in calls about its detox programs since the start of December. Chief executive officer, Jason Thomas, told Newcastle Weekly more people were enquiring about the hospital’s Dual Diagnosis Management Program and its inpatient program in the lead-up to, and after, new laws restricting the sale of overthe-counter painkillers containing codeine came into effect on 1 February. A prescription is now required to obtain Panadeine, Nurofen Plus, Mersyndol and genericbrand pain relief medications, as well as some cold and flu medicines like Codral. Mr Thomas said the ban had both positive and negative impacts. “Because these over-the-counter medications have been so readily available, there are patients who’ve been dealing with chronic pain on their own and self-medicating rather than seeing a GP,” he said. “[The ban] means these people can be referred to a GP and have it managed properly, and, in some cases, be placed on another medication, perhaps on

a lower dose, with greater effect.” On the other hand, Mr Thomas said those who only visited the pharmacy occasionally for pain relief or cold and flu medicine, might be inconvenienced. “People who only need the medication every now and then will still need to see a GP, and more and more GPs aren’t bulk-billing, so it can be costly,” he said. One of the NSW Labor Party’s primary concerns is that the ban could be problematic for people with codeine dependency, who might ‘shop around’ for prescriptions or present to emergency departments to seek relief, along with occasional users who cannot get an appointment with their GP. To safeguard against this, labor has called upon the Berejiklian government to formally monitor the ban’s impact over the next six months. If the new laws are found to be cumbersome, or place stress on emergency departments, labor’s alternative solution is to monitor pharmacy sales in real-time to track frequent customers; work with manufacturers to make smaller packs of codeinebased prescription painkillers to curb misuse;

implement additional resources at state-based pain clinics; as well as dual education programs. Signs and symptoms of codeine dependence include: upping the dose to achieve the same effect; inability to stop or cut down use; less interest in regular activities; relationship or sleep problems; irritability; upset digestion; and sexual dysfunction. If you think you are addicted, seek advice from your GP. - Georgia Osland

Government’s 180 on hospital

App-lying yourself really pays off Lachlan Brennan never liked school. The 17-year-old had failed every single exam he ever sat, and most of his teachers had given up on him. Yet, he came out on top when he developed U-RENT, a mobile app that allows neighbours to rent unused household items to each other for a fee. “Say you have an old lawnmower in your garage that you don’t use,” the Valentine resident explained to Newcastle Weekly, “you can rent it out to your neighbour, and you set the fee and a bond.” The aim of the app is to draw the community together and stop people from buying unnecessary household items, which would eventually end up in landfill. Lachlan’s young age posed a challenge in getting the app off the ground. “Developers and tech professionals wouldn’t take me seriously because I’m only 17,” he said. “I’m really passionate about this idea so I just had to persist.” There was also an incident where someone had plagiarised U-RENT’s trademarked logo and concept.

Lachlan Brennan and his innovative community sharing app, U-RENT. Photo: Peter Stoop

Despite these hurdles, Lachlan persisted with the project, and he credits his success to the support of the teachers who believed in him – Mr Rossurane, his business studies teacher, and Mrs Rappeneker. “It was a really good outcome,” he said. “I went from failing every exam I’ve sat to the top of the class by making this app. “It’s not all over for kids who are failing,” Lachlan advises other students, “you’ve got to keep on going.” U-RENT is available to download from the iTunes App Store and Google Play. - Alice Hennen

The new hospital to be built at Maitland will be government-run. NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard announced the government’s decision late last month to shelve its initial privatisation plan. Instead of operating as a private-public partnership, the Lower Hunter hospital will be built and run by the government. The Maitland community had been fighting the privatisation plan for some time, with the help of state MP Jenny Aitchison. Thousands of residents signed petitions and attended rallies against the proposal, working with the NSW Nurses and Midwives Association, the Health Services Union NSW/ACT beach, Unions NSW and the Australian Salaried Medical Officers Federation.

The fifth section of the Newcastle Inner City Bypass upgrade, between Rankin Park and Jesmond, is forging ahead. Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has awarded the design contract for early work to Aurecon Australasia Pty Ltd. The work involves designing a shared path bridge over Newcastle Road to replace the existing pedestrian crossing near the intersection of Hill and Steel streets. The bridge is predicted to ease traffic in the surrounding road network, particularly the section of the bypass through Lookout Road, Croudace Street and Newcastle Road. It will be built ahead of the new bypass. Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter, Scot MacDonald, said motorists could expect better traffic

BEFORE

flow and improved road safety once the bridge was installed and the crossing signals removed. “The shared path bridge would be linked to existing facilities on either side of Newcastle Road and would improve safety for both pedestrians and cyclists,” Mr MacDonald said. The NSW Department of Planning and Environment placed the environmental impact statement on public exhibition from 16 November to 16 December. Those submissions were passed on to the RMS. Additional investigations and analysis will now be carried out, after which a submissions and preferred infrastructure report will be prepared to provide responses to all issues raised. The report is expected to be finalised mid-year.

news Rally drives public passion to save wetlands The state government says it is considering buying back the Mambo Wanda Wetlands in Salamander Bay, 18 months after it sold the land to a property developer for $250,000. The NSW Department of Planning will “investigate the feasibility of purchasing the site”. However, the cost of buying back the land (even via compulsory acquisition) is likely to exceed the original sale price, as the developer has already lodged multiple development applications and engaged contractors. The news came just days after Port Stephens residents, who have been campaigning for the government to buy back the land since it was sold, reached 10,000 signatures on a petition to restore

the wetlands to public ownership. As Newcastle Weekly went to print, that figure had risen to 12,000. The signatures were collected by the Mambo-Wanda Wetlands Conservation Group at local shopping centres, market stalls and on Port Stephens’ main streets. “We were out there every day,” volunteer Irene Jones told Newcastle Weekly. “It was good to talk to the locals and holidaymakers about this issue. “The tourists were outraged and just as passionate as the locals.” The petition will trigger parliamentary debate, having secured the 10,000 signatures required to do so. The community was again out in full force last Thursday when 200 people gathered at a rally on the eve

of World Wetlands Day (Friday 2 February) to express their concerns. The rally was organised by the conservation group. “We were expecting an announcement from the NSW government about buying back the land, but we didn’t get one,” Mrs Jones said. “So, we decided to organise a rally at the eleventh hour.” People power has prevailed in the past, with a development application

to Port Stephens Council to build housing in the wetlands area ultimately being defeated. More submissions were received for that DA than any other in the council’s history. Port Stephens state MP Kate Washington said the government needed to step up. “We want action, not meaningless words dressed up as progress,” she said. - Alice Hennen & Georgia Osland

news A Caribbean amphibian and a lucky Black Cat The Lake Macquarie suburb of Rathmines has a rich history as a former RAAF base during World War II and is renowned for its amphibious Catalina planes. Rathmines Catalina Memorial Park Association president Bill Anderson gave Newcastle Weekly the rundown on the history of one of the aircraft, a PBY5-A, nicknamed Our Girl, which is being restored in Kilaben Bay. It began its working life as a US Navy plane during World War II, and has had various owners in the Caribbean in the years since. The association bought the plane through an eBay auction in 2013, and it had to be dismantled in order to ship it from Puerto Rico to Australia. Our Girl was heavily corroded by seawater, and years of neglect since its last flight in 2000 meant that the

engines had seized. “We can’t make it fly, but we can pretty it up,” Mr Anderson laughed. Form takes priority over function in this case, and Our Girl is being lovingly restored by a team of dedicated volunteers. The badly-corroded fuselage has been re-sheeted with aluminum and the wiring, rudder pedals and most of the flight controls removed, and the interior of the cockpit has been pressure-cleaned and given a coat of paint. The ultimate goal of this refurbishment is to restore the Catalina to how it would have looked when it rolled off the production line in the 1940s. It will eventually star as the centrepiece in a museum, which the association plans to build at

Rathmines Park, in conjunction with Lake Macquarie council’s plans to rejuvenate the area. “The heritage of the park is important,” Mr Anderson said. “It’s all about the story, history and people.” There is only one operational Catalina plane in Australia. Felix the Black Cat is owned by the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society, based

at the Illawarra Airport near Wollongong. After suffering engine troubles at the Rathmines Catalina Festival last year, its pilot made an emergency landing at Maitland Airport. After being grounded at Rutherford while mechanics built a new engine, Felix is now ready to take to the skies and fly away home.

Strip down for V-Day fun run

Funding flows for mental health

Running around in your underwear may sound odd, but this Valentine’s Day weekend, it’s for a good cause. Cupid’s Undie Run is a 1.5-kilometre fun run hosted by the Children’s Tumour Foundation. It’s planned for Sunday 18 February at Nobbys Beach promenade from 11.30am, and is open to all ages. Runners can choose to run in their underwear or go all out in fancy dress – the sillier, the better. The foundation aims to raise $500,000 for research into Neurofibromatosis, the name given to a group of diseases that cause tumours to grow on nerves, which can affect neurological function. Neurofibromatosis occurs in one in 2,500 births, which is more common than cystic fibrosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy and Huntington’s Disease. There are two types of Neurofibromatosis – NF1 and NF2. NF1 can cause autism, learning disorders, limb deformities and facial deformities. NF2 causes tumours to grow on the auditory nerves, leading to balance and hearing problems. It is estimated that 10,000 people in Australia

Funding from Rotary International has been a boon for two University of Newcastle researchers. Amanda Baker is now trialling a phonedelivered intervention program for comorbid mental health disorders and alcohol abuse amongst young people, thanks to a Mental Health Research Grant of up to $70,000. Receiving the Geoffrey Betts PostDoctoral Fellowship and $75,000 in funding, Nicole Reilly can now research maternal mental health intervention and prevention, which will then inform policy and clinical practice.

Participants go all out for Cupid’s Undie Run.

currently live with the condition. National campaign manager Rachel Skelton is intimately acquainted with the disease. Her daughter Bella, aged three, has NF1, which has caused two tumours to grow on her spine, compressing it. “I didn’t know about it until I had Bella,” she told Newcastle Weekly. “It’s surprisingly common, but nobody’s heard of it, which is frustrating.” To register for Cupid’s Undie Run, go to cupidsundierun.com.au - Alice Hennen

Australian Rotary Health announced close to $1.6 million will be directed towards supporting the research into a wide variety of mental health areas. Rotary District 9670 Governor Helen Ryan was pleased that the grants were able to help Hunter researchers. “We are hoping to continue to improve the conversation surrounding mental health,” she said.

Retirement Planning: The $1.6m ‘Transfer Balance Cap’ – How will it affect YOU?

The transfer balance cap is a limit to the amount that can be transferred into what is called the Retirement Pension Phase’ of superannuation and receive the benefit of 0% earnings tax. Each person has their own individual ‘transfer balance cap’. Your personal cap is determined based on a number of things, including: the ‘general transfer balance cap’ at the time you first commence a retirement phase pension, any indexation applied to the general transfer balance cap, plus the total amount utilised to start any pensions in retirement phase. Your ‘transfer balance account’ starts when particular types of income streams are commenced. It’s a notional account that records certain types of transactions made into your income streams (i.e. pensions). Your available Cap limit (i.e. $1.6m), less your ‘transfer balance account’ balance determines whether or not you can transfer any additional amounts into your retirement phase pension in future. Penalties can apply if your transfer balance account exceeds the cap at any time. All retirement income streams are affected by the transfer balance cap– both those commenced before and after 1 July 2017. Income streams measured against the transfer balance cap are either a: – Some defined benefit pensions, or – Superannuation income stream payable to an individual, – Any deferred income stream payable to an individual who’s met one of the following conditions of release: • Retirement • Terminal illness • Permanent incapacity, or • reaching age 65. Death benefit superannuation income streams (with modifications for child death benefit pension) are also treated as retirement phase pensions and are assessed against the cap. NOTE: Transition to retirement(TTR) income streams are not assessed against the transfer balance cap until the account holder reaches age 65, or notifies the fund that they have met another full condition of release (see above).


Hall flying high in fifth place

Good knight Hodkinson

Novocastrian air racer Matt Hall is off to a flying start, placing fifth in the Red Bull Air Race World Championship season opener in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. It was his best finish in the region since he placed second in 2015. America’s Mike Goulian took out first place for the second time in his 10-year career. Second place was snapped up by 2017 champion Yoshi Muroya of Japan, and Czechoslovakia’s Martin Sonka placed third. Hall congratulated Goulian on his win and said the result was a positive start to the season. “I think the track slowed down, at least it felt like that to me, but I was pushing hard,” Hall said. “Mike has been faster than me all week, so congratulations to him and his team for winning.”

Newcastle Knights’ favourite Trent Hodkinson is calling it a night. The club has granted Hodkinson’s request for an early break from the final year of his contract, effective immediately. Hodkinson joined Newcastle in 2016 and has played 40 matches for the Knights. “Trent has been an excellent role model for our young players,” General Manger Football Darren Mooney said. “He is a well-respected teammate and contributed immensely to our community program. “We understand Trent’s decision to leave the club and we wish him and wife Chantelle all the best for the future.”

Hall, a former RAAF pilot, beat qualifying winner Matthias Dolderer in the first knock-out stage of the opener. However, the win wasn’t without some drama. Even though the German flew the fastest and had all but knocked Hall out of the running, Dolderer was found to have exceeded the G-force limit, and this wasn’t his first offence either. Hall has been a busy bee preparing for this event, building a whole new team and coming to grips with a brand-

new aircraft. A change of colours also brings about a change of luck; Hall and his team are sporting some new threads after welcoming a new sponsor into the fold. Organics by Red Bull joins regular backer OzRunways, which has extended its support onto the international stage with the race team.

Jessica Lumley’s skateboard design, Brothers.

Artists' wave of creativity The winning designs of Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery’s Board Design Competition have been described as “contemporary and fun”. Gallery director Debbie Abraham said Jessica Lumley and Joshua Canlas made good use of the board shape they were working to. Lumley took out the competition’s skateboard section, while Canlas took out the surfboard section. The competition was held in conjunction with the gallery’s All A Board festival, which included the major summer exhibition, BOARD, curated by Meryl Ryan, as well as

Living Cultures (surf lifesaving) and At the Beach. More than 5,500 people visited the gallery during these exhibitions. The Board Design Competition, which ran from 10 December to 21 January, was an exciting component for artists between 12 and 25 years old. Many entries were inspired by the gallery’s exhibitions and contemporary surf and skate cultures in general. Judges Brett McMahon, Meryl Ryan and Paul Parkes had a hard time choosing from the highcalibre entries, which were diverse in design approach.

Lumley and Canlas each won a board sporting their original design, thanks to 3P Surfboards and PlaygroundsParks.

time out Wind in charity’s sails The incentive to raise funds in the Heaven Can Wait Regatta will be even greater this year, with a headstart for the leading fundraiser. More than 100 boats are expected to tussle on Lake Macquarie from 24 to 25 February – but it’s all for a good cause. The sailing event raises money for Cancer Council NSW, and is held each year as part of Lakefest, a week-long celebration of aquatic activity from 16 February to 4 March. For the past three years, those funds have gone directly towards the Home Help Program, which provides domestic support to cancer patients while they are recovering from treatment. Last year, the regatta raised $33,000, bringing the total amount donated in 11 years to almost $250,000. Heaven Can Wait was the

brainchild of Lake Macquarie resident, keen sailor and cancer survivor, Shaun Lewicki. “Initially, we wanted to raise funds for cancer research while also promoting sailing and the scenic Lake Macquarie region,” Mr Lewicki said. “Now, for the fourth consecutive year [fundraising specifically for the Home Help Program], the event has enabled over 285 families affected by cancer to receive in-home support to remove some of the stress associated with a cancer diagnosis.” Organised by the Royal Motor Yacht Club Toronto, the regatta will feature a variety of events designed to test the strength and stamina of some of the region’s most experienced sailors. There will be specially-designed courses to cater for different types of vessels, including a Long One Lap Dash for yachts, trailer sailors,

Eagles’ ethereal sound transcends time Haunting thriller The Eagles are one of those bands with enduring appeal. Since forming in 1971, The Eagles have won six Grammy Awards, topped the charts around the world countless times, and, in 1999, their Greatest Hits album won the award for Best Selling Album of the Century. The songs themselves have transcended generations to become iconic to millions, even today. And, on Friday 23 February and Saturday 24 February, audiences can rock out to their favourite Eagles tunes at Belmont 16s and Nelson Bay Diggers. The Eagles Show ‘The Heart of the Matter’ has become widely-acclaimed for the band’s authentic renditions of Eagles classics. Hot off the heels of their successful run of 2017 Hunter shows, the band returns to take you on an incredible musical journey through hits such as Hotel California, Take It Easy, Peaceful Easy Feeling, Witchy Woman, Heartache Tonight, The Long Run and many more. Lead vocalist Paul McGovern’s unique voice, akin to that of the legendary Don Henley,

takes audiences back in time with the ethereal vocal harmonies responsible for creating the incomparable sound of The Eagles. Tickets on sale at proticket.com.au

On an isolated stretch of land, 50 miles outside of San Francisco, sits a house that knows no end. Built by heiress Sarah Winchester (Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren), it stands seven stories tall and contains hundreds of rooms, staircases to nowhere and doors that open into walls. To the outsider, it looks like a monstrous monument to a disturbed woman’s madness. But Sarah is not building for herself, or anyone else. She is building an asylum for hundreds of vengeful ghosts, and the most terrifying among them have a score to settle with the Winchesters. In cinemas 22 February.

Now in le t Newcas

Life, compacted What’s the worst that can happen when we break away from conformity? One Carrington family embraced the possibility of judgement and failure and decided to live life on their terms. For the past two years, Matthew Travis, Angela Foong and their two children, Zoe and Levi, have been living in a compact, minimalist house they built on a 168-square-metre lot. At roughly seven metres wide and 25 metres deep, it’s not your average home. For starters, there’s no traditional entryway. Instead, there are beautiful French doors on either side of the home, which connect to the openplan downstairs level. Here, kitchen, dining, living, and a Japanese-inspired, U-shaped bathroom combine. There’s the pointed absence of

a television from the lounge area, and a piano and a projector for home movie nights take its place. A backyard, about three metres deep, provides just enough space for Zoe and Levi to play, and fresh produce to grow. Upstairs, there are two, loftstyle bedrooms. The children have toys, but everything has its place. No corner of the home has been spared for functionality, with an emphasis on communal spaces. The minimalist lifestyle was something Matthew and Angela progressively gravitated towards. When it came time to build their own home, they made a conscious choice to live with less, and live more simply. “We knew the way we designed our house was going to influence our behaviour,” Angela tells Newcastle Weekly. “So, we asked ourselves: ‘What

cover story

kind of life do we want to live?’” Invariably, their answers involved spending less time on the things that didn’t matter, and more time on those that did. Designing a smaller home helped them save on water and electricity, utilising natural light and installing water tanks. It helped that Matthew was an architect, but the family used simple building materials, such as plywood and burnished concrete. And, they have a smaller mortgage. It’s still there, but having less to repay means less work, and less family time lost. Less home maintenance, too. “It’s been challenging, especially with kids, but we’ve learnt to adapt and it’s all we know now,” Angela says. “It’s not for everyone, but it is for us.” - Georgia Osland

in the garden A passion for fruit

Could your kitchen do with a facelift...at less cost?

This season, I am not getting as many queries about non-flowering passionfruit. Hopefully this means everyone is having a bumper crop as passionfruit does love the heat. A lack of rain may cause the fruit to be dry when cut open, but passionfruit lovers have no doubt been watering regularly. Grafted varieties produce quicker and are more prolific than seedlinggrown plants. Full sun is a necessity, as is planting in well-drained soil. Don’t compost with excessive amounts of grass clippings, which are high in nitrogen; maintain a slightly alkaline to slightly acid soil. One would think that this vigorous climber would be easy to grow, but it is affected by climate conditions. Excessive growth should be controlled by pruning back main branches. Encourage fruiting by applying sulphate of potash.

PICK OF THE WEEK X-Men: First Class Sunday, 7MATE, 8.30pm, M (2011) This prequel to the XMen films takes us back to 1944 when a young Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) – whom you may know better as Magneto – sees his mother killed by Nazi scientist Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon). Fast forward to 1962, and Erik, in his search for revenge, crosses paths with Charles Xavier (James McAvoy, pictured), who is pursuing Shaw for other reasons. McAvoy and Fassbender deliver typically fantastic performances, and British director Matthew Vaughn ties all the strands together.

Friday

Nightcrawler

The Sixth Sense Monday, ELEVEN, 8.30pm, M (1999) Director M. Night Shyamalan became pretty much a household name because of this knockout. Youngster Haley Joel Osment (pictured) suffers in bewildered silence at his ability to communicate with the recently deceased, until child psychologist Bruce Willis enters his life with the offer to help him deal with it. The acting is strong but subdued, and extra marks to Toni Collette as Osment’s distraught single mother. One of the most intelligent and rewarding suspense films in decades.

Friday, SBS, 9.30pm, M (2014) Media ethics are placed under the microscope in a compelling drama. Jake Gyllenhaal (pictured) delivers a career-best performance as scuzzy and immoral loner Louis Bloom, who finds his calling as an ambulance-chasing freelance TV news cameraman. Rene Russo plays Nina, a producer who cynically uses Louis’ footage to create fear. The Oscar-nominated screenplay expertly captures how the 24-hour news cycle operates. Scary and funny in equal measure, this is a must see.

Love is in the air for Taylor. The planet Venus is having a strong effect on him throughout 2018 and romance, even marriage, will be on his mind. If he was ever going to feel comfortable in a relationship, this is the year. He will be taking a practical view to his finances and will be diligent about work and security issues. To stay healthy, he needs to avoid overindulging and to focus on maintaining a modest lifestyle.

ARIES: 21 MAR – 20 APR

CANCER: 22 JUN – 22 JUL

LIBRA: 24 SEP – 23 OCT

CAPRICORN: 22 DEC – 20 JAN

Communication is the name of the game as it will enhance all your relationships. You could have a really enjoyable chat to a friend or sit and talk things over with your lover. If you decide to start a creative venture, this is the time to research your ideas.

Try to stretch your mind by pitting your wits against a problem or two. There’s no need for this to be a serious matter; it could be trying a few crosswords, enjoying a computer game or something more energetic, such as a sporting match with a few friends.

You can now begin to make sense of both your home and work situation and friends could come up with solutions. You might have an opportunity to buy something for the home at a knockdown price and your loved ones will be supportive of your choices and decisions.

Venus in Pisces indicates younger family members could cause issues that turn home into a temporary battlefield. You may feel one of your children is being manipulated by an older, stronger and less scrupulous youngster or that your ideas are being challenged in an unpleasant way.

TAURUS: 21 APR – 21 MAY

LEO: 23 JUL – 23 AUG

SCORPIO: 24 OCT – 22 NOV

AQUARIUS: 21 JAN – 19 FEB

Your talents should shine this month, so believe in yourself and in what you can offer to the world. If art and literature leave you cold, you may be more inclined to a romantic path. Conventional values are not for you since you’re determined to chart your own course.

Your love life is looking up when a charming mood takes a hold; you’ll win admiration with ease. Your silver tongue enables you to release pent-up feelings. Whether you’re warming up a new relationship or re-heating an old one, the planetary aspects will help move things in the right direction.

You may have an inspired idea that helps you find an easy way through an awkward problem. A friend could help out at work or home, plus any help you give others will be greatly appreciated. Take the opportunity to listen to music, read a novel or admire something beautiful.

Happy birthday Aquarius! A romantic date will give your heart a lift and for singles a simmering attraction could gather exciting momentum. Fun places and encounters will keep you smiling, while going further afield or catching up with a friend from afar will be stimulating.

VIRGO: 24 AUG – 23 SEP

SAGITTARIUS: 23 NOV – 21 DEC

This is a wonderful time for putting your ideas across to others. If you want to speak of how you feel or help others understand what makes you tick, you’ll find just the right words. Pace yourself; the more you take on, the more effort required to complete your tasks.

You will be able to zip through the chores at home this month and if you work from home, you will be able to achieve greater success than normal. This is a good time to buy something that uses water, such as a washing machine or a dishwasher.

You are likely to be given thoughtful gifts which will set the scene for better things to come. Good deals financially will please you and a beautiful new possession will add to your happiness, but an expensive purchase or undertaking could play havoc with the budget.

GEMINI: 22 MAY – 21 JUN Neptune in Pisces indicates you could meet someone who sets your heart fluttering, as romance seems to be in the air. Travel may be the trigger to meeting someone new or you may stay firmly put, only to find that the one you fancy comes from overseas.

PISCES: 20 FEB – 20 MAR

Barnardos Australia urgently needs shortterm foster carers for local children in need. We provide support, training and a generous tax free allowance of $1050 per fortnight. Call us today.

CAFÉS We were pretty spoiled for choice while we were living in Sydney and it became a big part of our lives there, but we are now realising the cafés here in Newcastle are just as good, which was a great surprise. There’s nothing better than sitting down and having a coffee and watching the world go by.

My favourite things FRIENDS My wife and I both moved away from home early on, so our friends have played a massive part in our lives. We regard those people as part of our family; they’re always there to help out and they’re always there to have fun. Sometimes it is a weekend away, or sometimes it’s just a catch-up for a coffee.

FOOD I have always loved my food! When we go out for dinner at a nice restaurant, I get some ideas for cooking that I take home and try and whip up something pretty similar. From that, I’ve really gained a love for cooking.

Aidan Guerra

NEWCASTLE KNIGHTS FORWARD

Aidan Guerra signed a three-year contract with the Newcastle Knights last June ahead of the 2018 season. The 29-year-old played 154 NRL games for the Sydney Roosters after making his NRL debut in 2010. He helped the club win the 2013 grand final, bagging a try as the Roosters beat Manly 26-18. The second-rower/lock made his international debut that same year, representing Italy at the World Cup, before gaining selection on the Australian Kangaroos side for the 2014 Four Nations. Guerra was first picked in the Queensland squad for the 2014 State of Origin series. He went on to play 10 matches for the Maroons, with his last appearance being in State of Origin I last year. 58

FAMILy I just got married! We are a young family with my wife Belinda and my two-year-old daughter, Olive. We love watching her grow, develop, mimic and all the joys of being a parent.

BEACHES Beach days are a bit different with Olive now, but there’s no better feeling than jumping in the sea water and cooling down. I find it revitalises you and gives you plenty of energy.


It makes perfect sense.
