This week...

Mums are amazing. I don’t profess to know anything about motherhood, seeing as I can barely keep an indoor plant alive nor think about what I’m having for dinner too far in advance, but I have learned a lot from the female role models in my life. Being a mum takes selflessness, strength, determination and courage. By all accounts, it’s not easy being relied upon by tiny humans 24/7. And those tiny humans grow up to be big, independent humans, but you're always wearing your mum hat. That much I can tell. This week, ahead of Mother’s Day on Sunday 13 May, Newcastle Weekly takes five with three generations of the Gardener-Andruschak family. Leeanne Gardener and her daughter Kirralee Andruschak, with newborn baby Mackenzie in tow, reflect on the wonderful woman their mother and grandmother, Ina Wardrop, was. Like all grandmothers, Ina loved to spoil the kids with lollies, and she wasn’t afraid of rollercoasters. This will be the family’s second Mother’s Day without Ina, but with the birth of their first granddaughter, they still have much to celebrate. Story on page 16.

Push for mental health training The death of a knife-wielding man at Warners Bay has prompted calls to better equip police to respond to mental illness. In September 2015, postal worker Stephen Hodge was shot dead after he advanced on two officers armed with a large knife. Mr Hodge suffered from depression-related anxiety, according to evidence provided by his doctor, and had been affected by alcohol at the time of his death. Deputy state coroner Teresa O’Sullivan released her findings from the inquest into the fatal incident last month. It acknowledged officers had no choice but to shoot Mr Hodge, amid a recommendation that police consider a greater emphasis on specific de-escalation techniques, practiced by role-play exercises. Following the findings, Charlestown MP Jodie Harrison is now pushing for the state government to provide more mental health training. “I’ve spoken to police in the [Lake Macquarie] area and they have told me that they are responding to people who have mental health

issues more regularly,” she said. “Mental health episodes aren’t in the same category as a normal criminal activity. “I don’t criticise police at all in the way they responded on that day, but I do think they need more training because policing now is a lot different to 10 or 20 years ago. “When I heard that a man had been shot and killed at Warners Bay, and that he was a local worker, it was very disturbing to me, as I’m sure it was to his workmates and family. “We have to do better.” On the day of the shooting, police were called to Warners Bay post office after members of the public saw Mr Hodge chase his boss with the knife. He was suffering from self-inflicted wounds and put the knife to his throat during the incident. Despite repeated calls for him to drop the weapon, Mr Hodge continued to hold it in a threatening manner and was dangerously close to one of the officers, who had become trapped in a corner, when he was hit by four bullets, two of which caused fatal injuries. - Ben Murphy

news Council’s bid to safeguard history It has links to famous poet Henry Lawson and “reflects the character” of Australia’s second-oldest city. But there are concerns the historic Wickham School of Arts building is under threat from urban renewal projects in the Honeysuckle precinct. Built in 1882, the site is one of only three schools of arts and mechanics institutes left in the Newcastle local government area, with the other two located at Tighes Hill and the Hunter Street Mall. University of Newcastle historian, Dr Ann Hardy, says the Wickham School of Arts represents an important movement from the 19th Century. “There is an underlying threat [to the building] that heritage advocates have been keeping a close eye on,” she says. “The School of Arts movement

was really important for people in working class areas at that time. “Newcastle was full of miners and labour-intense industries and there was this whole philosophy to have the working class educated. “[The building] reflects the character of the city and is a reminder of an international movement that brought knowledge to the city. “One aspect of its significance is that it was patronised by writer Henry Lawson when he lived and worked in Wickham.” At its latest meeting, Newcastle council resolved to establish a Newcastle Heritage Working Party to update a heritage strategy and identify areas for possible inclusion as heritage conservation areas. The council’s Heritage Cultural Areas report includes areas such as The Hill, Hamilton South, Garden

Suburb, Cooks Hill, Hamilton, and Newcastle East. The working party will now aim to record and protect sites of heritage significance in other suburbs, including Waratah, Wickham, Wallsend, Stockton, Carrington, Mayfield, New Lambton, and Merewether. A Notice of Motion, put forward at the council meeting, noted that, while Newcastle was about to blossom as a truly international city, it remained important to recognise all aspects of heritage and history. “There is a significant future economic gain to be made by the city should it recognise, develop and promote its history,” the motion read. “We have an incredible story to tell, a truly Australian story, and we do ourselves and those who

news Changes to bypass design Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has refined the design for the fifth stage of the Newcastle Inner City Bypass. RMS considered submissions received by the community and other government agencies during the exhibition of the Environment Impact Statement (EIS). Changes include a shared path at the northern interchange for the Jesmond Park cycleway to improve accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists, and a shared path bridge leading to an underpass of the proposed bypass. The fifth stage of the bypass is expected to be built along a 3.4-kilometre stretch between Rankin Park and Jesmond, to the west of John Hunter Hospital. “As announced last August,

south-facing ramps have been added at the hospital to deliver a full interchange, which would provide access in all directions between the bypass and the John Hunter Hospital precinct,” Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter, Scot MacDonald, said. The RMS is conducting additional investigations to prepare a submissions and preferred infrastructure report, which will document all issues raised during the EIS exhibition and provide responses. The report is expected to be released later this year. Wallsend MP Sonia Hornery has repeatedly called for the completion of the final stage of the bypass, citing concerns over population growth and, consequently, an increase in traffic congestion.

news Liquor licensing conditions here to stay Liquor licensing conditions in Newcastle CBD are, for the most part, likely to remain unchanged. The NSW Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority is considering maintaining most of the current conditions applied to 14 latetrading hotels, after a review sought to assess their validity 10 years after the regulations came into effect. Introduced in 2008 to lower alcohol-related assaults and antisocial behaviour, the Newcastle Solution encompasses a suite of measures, including lockout times and drink stockpiling bans. Following the review, the authority is considering maintaining lockout times of either 1am or 1.30am and closing times of either 2.30am or 3am; the ban on drink stockpiling; as well as the cessation of liquor sale 30 minutes before closing, and the requirement

of a staff member solely to supervise the responsible service of alcohol after 11pm. Some of the mooted changes include revoking the requirement of a common radio network among the 14 venues, on the basis that the technology is out of date, and varying the prohibition of “shots” after 10pm to the prohibition of “drinks commonly known as shots, shooters, slammers or bombs or any other drinks that are designed to be consumed rapidly” after 10pm. This condition will also no longer require free water stations at every bar, given that the Liquor Regulation 2008 now requires free drinking water to be made available wherever liquor is served. Instead of quarterly audits of venues’ Plans of Management, each licensee will be required to update their plans annually, in consultation

with NSW Police. Some community groups and stakeholders, including the Newcastle & Hunter Australian Hotels Association, argue that Newcastle has come a long way since the Newcastle Solution was introduced, and relaxing some – but not all – of the conditions is warranted. But Newcastle emergency service workers disagree, with the Last Drinks Coalition of police officers, paramedics, nurses, doctors and health workers welcoming the review’s outcome. As required under the Liquor Act 2007, the NSW Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority will give affected hotel licensees 21 days to respond, after which the authority will make its final determination. - Georgia Osland

Land acquired for airport Joint owners Newcastle and Port Stephens councils have approved the purchase of a 76-hectare parcel of land adjacent to Newcastle Airport. The proposal is a key part of Newcastle Airport’s 20-year master plan, with a business technology precinct being earmarked for development alongside the airport. Newcastle Airport believes the land will also create opportunities to capitalise on the core strengths of the region in terms of defence aerospace and advanced manufacturing. Port Stephens mayor Ryan Palmer said the decision to grant approval for the land was about the “bigger picture”. “This expansion could potentially allow for the growth of our region as a truly world-class tourism destination and business hub,” he said.

news Migraines tested

Victoria Street station upgrades

A research team wants to trial a new diet therapy and test whether it can help relieve or improve migraines. The University of Newcastle and Hunter Medical Research Institute will explore two dietary interventions – the Ketogenic diet and the Anti-Headache diet. “What we’re keen to explore in this study is whether the Anti-Headache diet is more effective than a Medical Nutrition Therapy [MNT] approach for reducing the incidence and severity of migraines,” project lead, professor Clare Collins says. A Ketogenic diet is a high fat, lowcarbohydrate, MNT-grade diet with a low intake of fruits, vegetables, breads and dairy. In contrast, the Anti-Headache diet excludes foods commonly reported to trigger migraines but emphasises eating more healthily and drinking more water. The research team is seeking 30 individuals aged 16 or older who have a history of regular migraines to participate in the study. Email migrainestudy@newcastle.edu.au

Three new lifts, canopies and CCTV surveillance are part of an upgrade at Maitland’s Victoria Street railway station. The raft of improvements also included the station entrances and interchange areas, sheltered bike racks, as well as new signage and lighting, while the heritage platform building and a total of 105 commuter car parking spaces were refurbished during the project. Minor works to the Waller Street car park,

southern station forecourt and lighting may be undertaken periodically in the coming weeks. However, the major construction activities, which first began in June 2017, have now been completed. The upgrades were made under the Transport Access Program – a $1 billion investment by the state government that aims to deliver safe, modern and accessible transport infrastructure across the state.

Port CEO prepares to step down The Port of Newcastle has announced its chief executive, Geoff Crowe, intends to resign at the end of June. Since joining the Port in 2015, Mr Crowe has overseen the development of plans for a cruise terminal, bulk terminal, and a container terminal. “The Port of Newcastle is not only an iconic port that delivers huge economic value to our region and state as a trade gateway, it is

also a valued asset for our industry and our community,” Mr Crowe said in a statement. “We have a terrific team, and I am very proud of the contribution that we have made in the last three years for the Port and our region.” Port of Newcastle Chair, Professor Roy Green, said Mr Crowe had brought extensive experience from the Hunter Region’s coal mining sector, as well as a commitment to the safe and efficient operation of the port.

cover story Baby girl a gift from an angel The Gardener family believes their newest addition was sent from above. Baby Mackenzie Lola Andruschak was born to mum Kirralee on Friday 20 April, just six days shy of the one-year anniversary of her great grandmother Ina Wardrop’s passing. With four grandsons already between daughters Carly and Kirralee, it was Leeanne and Phil Gardener’s last chance for a granddaughter. “Carly said to me the other day she sees nanna in Kenz,” Leeanne told Newcastle Weekly. “She said, ‘There’s just something about her’. “Mum definitely sent Kenz to us; there are too many coincidences.” Ina is remembered as a fun-loving, thrillseeking grandmother who loved to spoil the kids with lollies. She enjoyed playing games and wasn’t afraid of rollercoasters. Growing up in Holmesville near West Wallsend, Ina lived there all her adult life with her husband Ron. They had two children: Leeanne and her brother Chris, born 21 years apart.

Sadly, Ina passed away on 26 April 2017, aged 75. “The medication got the best of her,” Leeanne said. “Her lungs weren’t good, and she had polio as a child. Although there were no visible effects, it didn’t help her health at the end. “They say [polio] comes back in old age.” Nearing their second Mother’s Day without Ina, the family reflects on how they honoured her last year. “We went up to Mount Sugarloaf and let off balloons for her,” Kirralee said. This year, the family will attend a Mother’s Day memorial service at Newcastle Memorial Park, where Ina has a plot in the wall next to her parents. “I couldn’t bring myself to do it last year, but this year, I will,” Leeanne said. Of course, with new life, new traditions are born, and there is still much to celebrate for this family. They’ll continue to gather at the house in Holmesville, where Ina had ‘her’ specific chair, and the children climb the magnolia tree in the

news Decider draws economic boost

Container recycling takes off Five months after the state government launched its Return and Earn scheme, data shows New South Wales residents are recycling two-and-a-half times the global average. Reverse vending machines have been rolled out progressively across the state, including in the Hunter Region. While the container deposit scheme was not without initial teething problems, with Hunter residents citing a lack of Return and Earn stations, the community has embraced it, cashing in on 10-cent refunds per eligible drink container recycled. Across the state, each user averages 55 container returns per visit, compared to the global average of 21. Of those returns, 42% are aluminium containers, with

Sundays from 11am to 12pm being the most popular time to recycle. Most 150-millilitre to 3L drink containers are returnable if they are made from glass, plastic, aluminium, steel or liquid paperboard (cartons). Containers should be empty, uncrushed and with the original label attached. Customers can transfer their refunds to a PayPal account through the myTOMRA app, available through the iTunes App Store for Apple users and Google Play for Android users. Simply scan your myTOMRA app barcode at the reverse vending machine. There are other ways to return containers, aside from reverse vending machines, including at over-the-counter collection points, automated depots and donation stations.

Newcastle council has estimated that local businesses benefited from $2 million expenditure on accommodation and other spending across the A-League grand final weekend. Lord mayor Nuatali Nelmes said, while the game’s outcome was a tough one for Novocastrians, it proved the city could successfully host yet another major event. Newcastle welcomed almost 30,000 people to McDonald Jones Stadium for the decider, including more than 5,000 visitors to the region. “Occupancy rates were at 100% and extra flights were scheduled into Newcastle Airport, bringing in more than 1,000 additional passengers,” Cr Nelmes said. The Newcastle Jets suffered a 1-0 defeat to Melbourne Victory in the grand final on Saturday.

sport Knights downed by plucky Bunnies

Surf day puts smile on dials A unique amputee surf day has enabled participants to feel the stroke of the ocean. Co-hosted by prosthetic company Ossur and Newcastle Surf School, the inclusive annual event took place for a fourth time at Nobbys Beach on Saturday. Ossur ambassador and adaptive surf champion, Jade ‘Red’ Wheatley, said it had grown each year. “The aim of the whole event is to give people a taste of something they’ve either done before or always wanted to do,” he said. “Every one of them had a smile on their face and it definitely changes lives.” Wheatley’s close friend and Newcastle Surf School owner, Dan Frodsham, donates his time during the Ossur surf days.

The Newcastle Knights went down 36-18 to the South Sydney Rabbitohs at McDonald Jones Stadium on Friday night. South Sydney led 16-12 at half-time and tries to former Knight Dane Gagai and speedster Damien Cook extended the visitors’ advantage after the break. Halfback Adam Reynolds kicked the Rabbitohs further clear with two penalty goals, before Newcastle forward Lachlan Fitzgibbon charged over to reduce the deficit. A late Greg Inglis try then wrapped up South Sydney’s dominant win. Newcastle tackles Penrith on Friday 11 May at McDonald Jones Stadium. Kick-off is at 6pm.

Northstars record first win Adaptive surf champion Jade ‘Red’ Wheatley with Newcastle Surf School owner Dan Frodsham.

So, Wheatley said it was a thrill to give something back to him. “Dan has recently done his medial ligament in his knee; Ossur, in return, are consulting with Dan and fitting him with one of their new knee braces free of charge,” he said.

It was a weekend of mixed results for the Newcastle Northstars. After suffering an 8-3 loss to CBR Brave in the nation’s capital on Saturday, Newcastle returned home on Sunday still looking to post its first win of the season. The Northstars led Sydney Ice Dogs 3-2 as the clock wound down, but the visitors grabbed a late equaliser, sending the match into overtime. However, Newcastle went on to claim victory in a shootout, 4-3. The Northstars’ squad was bolstered by the return of several key players, including captain Robert Malloy, who competed in the IIHF World Championship in the Netherlands. Newcastle will now travel to Melbourne this weekend to tackle the Ice on Saturday and the Mustangs on Sunday.

Ronald McDonald House was there to give Josie and her family a “home away from home” so they could be together. To make memories, share laughter, hugs and smiles. You can bring hope and help keep families, like Josie’s, near each other and the care they need with an urgent donation today.

Their quiet life turned upside down, separated from family feeling helpless, scared and heartbroken.

time out Dog heaven in wine country

Dogs, wine and a family picnic all in the one place? No, this isn’t a dream. A Frenchie Day at Tyrrell’s Wines, in the Hunter Valley, will raise funds for Cancer Council NSW on Saturday 12 May. Organiser Tiffany Naysmith says it’s her major fundraiser for the Stars of Newcastle – an annual charity event that encourages local celebrities and business people to put on their dance shoes and shimmy and shuffle their way to stardom. Tiffany will join the likes of entertainer Wayne Rogers, NBN News presenter Jane Goldsmith and former NRL player Jeremy Smith on the dance floor next month. “I’m so excited – it’s just a great opportunity to give back to the community,” Tiffany says. “I did a bit of theatre and dance in high school and haven’t done it since, so it takes me back to my

younger days.” Tiffany moved to Australia from mid-west America with her husband, Zac, in 2015, and found herself entrenched in the Hunter Valley’s wine country. Some of her close family and friends have both lost and conquered the battle with cancer so, when the opportunity arose to take part in Stars of Newcastle, she jumped at it. As for the inspiration behind this weekend's fundraiser? “A lot of staff members here [at Tyrrell’s] have French bulldogs and, in 2016, they hosted a Frenchie Day, which ended up being very successful,” Tiffany explains. “I really love dogs, so I thought, ‘What better way to raise money than to have a dog event?’ “Even though it’s called Frenchie Day, all dogs are welcome.” There will be raffles, a sausage sizzle and a coffee truck from 10am to 2pm on the day.

time out Star entertainer finds his rhythm

Wayne Rogers and his dance partner Amber Harrison, from Newcastle Dance Academy. Photo: Peter Stoop

His only request was not to do the splits. Hunter entertainer Wayne Rogers is well-known for his bedazzling shows as a singer, but he usually leaves the moving and grooving to his backup dancers. “I haven’t done a lot of dancing, aside from when I was much younger,” Rogers said. “It’s very difficult to sing and dance at the same time.” But that’s about to change, as Rogers gears up for this year’s Stars of Newcastle fundraiser for Cancer Council NSW. He’s dusted off the chorus shoes and partnered with Newcastle Dance Academy’s Amber Harrison to learn a Broadway-style routine for the Dancing With the Stars-esque gala event. On Saturday 16 June, Rogers and 11 other well-known Novocastrians will unite with their partners at NEX

Newcastle West to battle it out on the dance floor. While there can be only one winner, the true beneficiary is the Cancer Council, to which all of the proceeds are donated. An entertainer of 25 years, performing around the Hunter, Central Coast, Sydney, Perth and Melbourne, Rogers has been vying for a spot on the Stars of Newcastle lineup for some time. He is excited to finally be taking part after appearing last year as a

special guest performer. To help boost his individual fundraising tally, Rogers will host a variety concert at Wests New Lambton on Sunday 27 May at 2pm, starring Amber and three other backup dancers from the academy. Visit westsnewcastle.com.au/events and search ‘Wayne Rogers’ to buy tickets. To sponsor Rogers or another 2018 star, visit everydayhero.com.au/event/ starsofnewcastle2018/our-stars - Georgia Osland

STEP BACK INTO

American rock band Queens of the Stone Age will return to Newcastle as part of their Villains World Tour. Following hundreds of epic shows, six genre-defining albums and multiple Grammy nominations, the group blasted forth once more from the Californian desert last August with their most recent acclaimed chart-topping seventh album, Villains. Featuring fan and radio favourites such as Head Like A Haunted House, The Way You Used To Do and The Evil Has Landed, Villains was named #8 on Rolling Stone’s ‘50 Best Albums of 2017’ list and debuted at #1 on Australia’s ARIA Album Chart. Led by frontman Josh Homme (pictured), the band will be joined on tour by Queensland-based punk rock band The Chats and Australian blues maestro C.W. Stoneking as special guests. With his rasping jungle-rock-

blues, well-oiled locks, and familiar, albeit less frequent, all-white clothing ensemble, C.W. Stoneking has converted fans across the world to his unique style. Queens of the Stone Age will perform at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on Thursday 30 August. They last played at the venue in 2014. Tickets are available via Ticketek.

A fresh interpretation of the tender, moving play Stolen is coming to Cessnock Performing Arts Centre for two performances only in June. A must-see for all Australians, Stolen tells the stories of five individuals from the Stolen Generations. It interweaves the stories of five children taken from their families: Ruby, Jimmy, Shirley, Sandy and Ann. Their stories are from different times and different places, but the five characters interact with each other as if their experiences were shared. Twenty years on from its original staging, Wiradjuri director Vicki Van Hout, whose background is in dance, puts a new spin on the play, which revisits Jane Harrison’s important historical text in a modern-day context. With endearing characters and plenty of humour, Stolen is ultimately a play about love and loss, resilience and hope. Stolen – a National Theatre

in the garden

Mother’s Day blooms How quick a year passes and the seasons turn – this year, autumn is like spring. Have you noticed the deciduous trees aren’t dropping leaves? This is an indicator that, deep down, the soil isn’t becoming cold. Nature gives us wonderful indicators as to the weather that could lie ahead. My guess is a very cold winter extending into spring! This weekend the weather will change, as it always seems to on Mother’s Day. Wet or cold, it is never quite perfect. However, this won’t deter family picnics or barbecues. As usual, I will be at work, loving the day shared with dads and little ones who want to buy mum a frog or a fairy. The young men who have had a big night out rush in looking for flowers; they haven’t forgotten

mum, the special day has suddenly arrived! During my years in the horticultural industry, I’ve noticed a gradual shift from traditional plants to easy-care ones for the busy, younger mums: succulents, Fiddle Leaf figs and Zanzibar Gems are low-care. Colour can be wonderful during autumn to brighten our homes as temperatures drop towards winter. Cyclamens are my favourite; they begin flowering each year in autumn, giving indoor colour through to the heat of summer. They do like cooler nights, so it is helpful to pop them outside at night in a sheltered spot once heating is instigated. Remember: in the northern hemisphere, they grow through snow. Although Chrissies aren’t as

popular, their lasting value is amazing. Cut flowers will last up to four weeks, whilst potted plants will reward inside for months and can then be planted out in the garden to bloom again this time next year. A great choice for Mother’s Day are Cymbidium orchids. Their long, strappy growth looks lush with long stems of flowers shooting above the green growth. They will reward for some time and when the spikes fi nish blooming, they should be given a spell outdoors in a sheltered spot.

This week: • • • •

Raise the blade on the lawn mower as growth slows down. As the weather cools, ease back on watering of indoor plants. Sweet peas will need to be staked and fertilised each week with Flourish. Keep an eye on lawns: the brown patches indicate army grubs are still active.

PICK OF THE WEEK Paddington

Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines

Friday, GO!, 6.30pm, G (2014) The popular British bear makes his first big-screen appearance in this live-action film directed by Paul King. Those familiar with Michael Bond’s classic British kids books will know the Peruvian bear’s story, but this sweet, quaint tale provides a chance for a new generation of kiddies to follow the adventures of the teddy named after the train station where he was discovered – wearing a sign around his neck that reads “please look after this bear”. A sure-fire winner with young and old alike.

Friday

Thursday, 7MATE, 8.30pm, M (2003) Arnold Schwarzenegger (pictured) returns to his signature cybernetic role and is at his brawny best, given a well-chosen supporting cast to play off. Arnie’s cyborg killing machine is sent from the future to protect the would-be leader of the human resistance, John Connor (Nick Stahl), from the attentions of the sexy and lethal Terminatrix (Kristanna Loken). Along for the bruising ride is Claire Danes, a vet who proves to be rather handy with a Kalashnikov and who’s a highly effective foil for Arnie. A tight, entertaining action fest.

Deadpool

Saturday, PRIME7, 9.30pm, MA15+ (2016) Comic book fans rejoice: here is a story, based on Marvel comics’ most unconventional antihero, that is gleefully self-aware, funny and clever. After forgettable roles in Green Lantern and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Ryan Reynolds (pictured) strikes gold as the foul-mouthed, devil-may-care “hero”, displaying impeccable comic timing and blazing chemistry with his co-stars. In an entertaining R-rated ride pumped with irony, violence and pop culture gags, Reynolds is neurotic Wade Wilson, who acquires amazing healing abilities after taking part in an experiment to save his life.

Miley is a black and white 4 year old girl. Our gorgeous Miley has been waiting for so long to find her perfect forever home. She has met all dogs great and small and of course loves the attention, pats and cuddles she receives from her admirers on the day. At home Miley has a funny quirky nature, loves a game with the other greys and gets so excited when her foster mum arrives home from work. She would love a home with another canine friend but does get a little too excited about kitties, so best a home with no cats. To find out more about this cheeky girl please contact Friends of the Hound.

URGENT

Foster carers urgently needed. You get support and you don’t pay vet or food bills. Contact Annette on: 0404 099 021

ARIES: 21 MAR – 20 APR

CANCER: 22 JUN – 22 JUL

LIBRA: 24 SEP – 23 OCT

CAPRICORN: 22 DEC – 20 JAN

The New Moon on the 15th is the ideal time to pay attention to your dreams or intuitions that touch on money or security. A hidden message from your subconscious could bring a windfall. There is a lot to be done with plenty of reward for steady effort.

The 15 May New Moon indicates you should listen to the advice of an older or more conservative colleague when it is offered; it will be helpful to your career path. Venus in Gemini indicates a need to take a philosophical attitude towards someone who is remote or withdrawn.

The New Moon on the 15th is the ideal time for dealing with official matters or to apply for a loan. Mixing business with pleasure will enable you to understand your competitors better. You have a knack of responding well to others when they need support which elicits reciprocity.

The New Moon on the 15th indicates

TAURUS: 21 APR – 21 MAY The New Moon on the 15th is the ideal time for keeping an open mind about proposed changes at work because someone at a senior level will be highly supportive. You’ll find all kinds of ideas popping into your mind, some whacky, some inspired, and they’ll stimulate lively conversations.

LEO: 23 JULY – 23 AUG The New Moon on the 15th indicates there could be great news about your job. You might receive the recognition you deserve or there are signs your job could soon bring in more money. Keep the focus on the bigger picture at work and don’t get bogged down in details.

SCORPIO: 24 OCT – 22 NOV

GEMINI: 22 MAY – 21 JUN

VIRGO: 24 AUG – 23 SEPT

SAGITTARIUS: 23 NOV – 21 DEC

The New Moon on the 15th falls directly in your 12th house and indicates that things will go especially well when dealing with people who are older or more influential than you. They will be very helpful and supportive. All you need to do is trust your instincts.

Close relationships with loved ones may come under some pressure as Mercury is in a difficult aspect with Mars and Pluto until 15 May. The New Moon on the 15th is an ideal time to plan a trip overseas or to make connections with those who live far away.

The 15 May New Moon is the ideal time to cooperate with colleagues and make a fresh start at work. Change is in the air, but you’ll be able to see your way clearly after recent disruptions. Sensible management of your resources is the way to go this month.

The New Moon on the 15th is the ideal time to make a fresh start in all your relationships. If you are single, it may indicate that you are about to embark on a new love affair. It will pay you to co-operate as much as possible with others this month.

that if you have been feeling left out with all this passion flying around then it is time for you to get out and socialise. You’ll feel flattered when a co-worker or social acquaintance admits to secretly having a crush on you.

AQUARIUS: 21 JAN – 19 FEB The New Moon on 15 May indicates this would be an ideal time to call a tradie to have something fixed at home. This is also an ideal time to for making important plans and decisions in connection with property and on behalf of the family.

PISCES: 20 FEB – 20 MAR The New Moon on the 15th indicates you’re in a particularly sociable frame of mind. You don’t have much to worry about because you of all people are able to take control of any situation that bothers you. This is an ideal time to attend meetings and impress others.

My favourite things CHERISHED MOMENTS Hanging out with the family when we’re all together under one roof is one of my favourite things. The banter is good, there’s plenty of laughter and, with my eldest daughter studying in New Zealand in recent years, we make the most of every opportunity we get.

WHERE I LIVE Newcastle, including Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens and the Hunter Valley, is what I call home - it’s a beautiful, diverse place and I’m proud to call it home.

Paul Harragon NEWCASTLE KNIGHTS LEGEND

Paul ‘The Chief’ Harragon played the game of rugby league with passion and intensity. Born in Kurri Kurri, he received countless accolades and achievements during a career that spanned more than a decade. From his beloved Newcastle Knights, to the State of Origin arena, to the green and gold of Australia, ‘The Chief’ was a true leader of men. Paul’s transition from the football field into the world of media and promotions was a natural step. His roles included co-host of The Footy Show and rugby league commentator for the Nine Network and Fox Sports. He also wrote newspaper columns and hosted a variety of radio shows, penned a topselling autobiography, and produced a national top 10 ARIA single. Another natural transition post-rugby league was his role as a representative and brand ambassador for several well-known Australian companies. 58

THE OCEAN One my favourite things is being around the ocean. I love looking at it, swimming in it, surfing, paddle-boarding – anything. After a good swim and lay on the sand, you’re ready for anything.

MEDITATION Undoubtedly, one of my favourite things I do is meditate. It quickly puts everything into perspective for me and makes the day run smoothly. I can’t do without it.

TRAINING WITH FRIENDS It’s wonderful to enjoy physical fitness every day but, when you combine that with training with friends, it has a huge, positive impact on your wellbeing. Having a coffee and connecting with friends is just as important as the training itself.
