This week...

I hope you are all enjoying the extra hour's sunshine Daylight Saving Time has afforded us. At least, I think it's there, somewhere behind the rain clouds! All jokes aside, it's the downpour our drought-crippled region needed, so we can't complain. The return of longer, warmer days brings with it the opportunity to get stuck into those odd jobs around the house that were shelved over winter. And, with the ability to achieve more outside the 9-to-5, comes greater flexibility to do the things we love on weekends. While spring is a great time to tackle some of the items on your to-do list, don't forget to maintain a healthy balance of work and play – remember: the housework will always be there. October is Mental Health Month, so I encourage everyone to check in with themselves and others, as mental health is just as important as physical health. This is particularly pertinent to young people, as HSC exams start today. Good luck to all students sitting exams, and remember, there are many paths that lead to a successful career. For a colourful example of how Newcastle youth de-stressed on headspace day (11 October), flip to page 8. Help is available via Lifeline 13 11 14 or Kids Helpline 1800 55 1800. - Georgia Osland

news Poppy project to remember fallen A field of poppies on the grounds of Fort Scratchley will pay tribute to Hunter Valley servicemen on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice that ended World War I. The Fort Scratchley Historical Society has sought assistance from the community in a bid to knit and crochet replica Flanders poppies for a display on 11 November – Remembrance Day. Well-known Newcastle historian, David Dial OAM, advised the historical society that 2,127 Hunter Valley servicemen – no women – died on active service during the Great War of 1914-18. The almost 4,000 family names, inscribed on the Anzac memorial walkway’s steel silhouettes, near Bar Beach, were also provided by Mr Dial as one of his personal contributions to the centenary of the Great War. For its poppy project, the historical society stated that 4,000 replicas would be ideal but, as a minimum, it wanted to receive enough to commemorate those servicemen in the Hunter Region who did not return. The initiative has been led by the society’s museum team, particularly volunteer Michelle

Thompson. Her grandfather, Lieutenant Colonel Mort, was on duty at Fort Wallace, Stockton, the night the Japanese attacked Newcastle, on 8 June 1942. “Memories fade, and, as the commemoration is called Remembrance Day, we should remember the sacrifices of these brave men who gave their lives for the freedoms we enjoy today,” she said. “So, at 11am on the 11th of the 11th, come and pay your respect to the fallen in a service at Fort Scratchley. “My grandfather was instrumental, along with ex-army men and some community members, in the restoration of Fort Scratchley from the late1970s. “The ongoing work of the Fort Scratchley volunteers, who are an amazing, dedicated team, continues to keep the legacy and memories alive. “I’d like to [make special] mention the work of curator Ron Barber and his team – the meticulous efforts to record and document the artefacts are incredible.” A knitting pattern, which the society has permission to use for the poppy project, is

available online via the website 5000poppies. wordpress.com, at the fort’s kiosk, or from Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and Maitland libraries. To date, about 1,500 poppies have already been donated, some from as far afield as Gunnedah. You can drop off finished poppies to your local library, Fort Scratchley, or post them to PO Box 971, Newcastle, 2300, by 5 November.

Second cities take the lead Newcastle is one of the major players in a new policy framework exploring the role of ‘second’ cities. Representatives will gather at a symposium from 29 to 31 October to discuss the framework, which maps out how Geelong, Wollongong and Newcastle can contribute to the nation’s economic and social prosperity. It comes at a time when the federal government proposes a plan to force some migrants to live in regional areas for up to five years to ease congestion in Sydney and Melbourne, where nearly half of Australia’s 25 million people reside. The Second Cities: Smaller and Smarter symposium will highlight national and international best practices, and bring together experts and leading practitioners in industry, government, academia

and the community to share their insights on the future of second cities. Symposium host Kyle Loades said it was high time to debate and explore the economic and societal roles of second cities. “Major metropolitan centres are continuing to thrive economically,” he said. “However, residents and businesses face increasing congestion, challenging access to jobs and services, and reduced housing affordability. “With the right policy settings and economic drivers, Australia’s second cities offer an opportunity to ease the pressures faced by our major metropolitan counterparts.” Second cities typically accommodate between 50,000 and 1 million residents. Many have undergone a planned economic transformation.

news Rainbow walk shines a light on youth’s challenges Young people across Newcastle added a little colour to their day as part of a national awareness campaign that drew attention to mental health and wellbeing. Youth mental health foundation, headspace, celebrated one of its flagship events last week with a Rainbow Walk and Party. The foundation’s Newcastle manager, Stephen Hirneth, said the event was a fun way to bring the region’s youth community together, while also raising awareness of an important issue that affects so many. “One in three young Australians are reporting high, or very high, levels of psychological distress, and we want them to know that headspace is here to help if they are going through a hard time,” he said.

Dr Hirneth said young people faced a unique set of challenges compared to previous generations, which often had a serious impact on their mental health. “Young people are sleeping less, being less active, and eating less healthily than previous generations,” he told Newcastle Weekly. “[There’s] increased pressure on body image and self esteem related to social media; relationship difficulties with family, friends or partners; increased screen time, which impacts sleep, physical activity and can overtake real-life human connections; and pressure around school, exams, work, and study.” He said headspace promoted several simple tips for young people

to help build and maintain their mental health and wellbeing. The seven healthy tips included: get into life and do stuff that’s important to you, learn new ways to handle tough times, build close and connected relationships, stay active, get enough sleep, eat well, and cut back on alcohol and other drugs. Formed in 2006, headspace aims

to address a critical gap in services for young people, aged 12 to 25, who seek mental health support. With a focus on early prevention, it works alongside youth to help them get back on track and boost their ability to manage their mental health.

Loving the benefits of village living!

Anne Moyle has lived at Jenny MacLeod Retirement Village for 7 years and doesn’t plan on moving anytime soon. She thoroughly enjoys village life! Having lived in the Wallsend and Jesmond area since the 1960’s, Anne knew she wanted to stay close by when she became unwell. No longer wanting the maintenance of her home especially on her own and having to look after the gardens and lawns, it was an easy decision to move into the village to be close to her friends. Anne regularly catches up with friends inviting them over for a chat and coffee on her back veranda that overlooks a beautiful area. She enjoys cooking, exercising and crafts and continues doing these hobbies at the village. Residents live independently and organise their own activities in the community hall – singing, music, wine tasting, rummykup, exercises classes, crafts, happy hour and more. There is a village bus for outings and shopping within the broader community. For those that enjoy holidays, village living makes it easy to ‘lock and leave’ the home with the confidence and assurance of knowing it will be looked after. Anne said, “A friend recently came back from a trip to Geneva and I took her over a tray of food when she got back. We keep an eye out for each other. I feel safe and protected living at Jenny MacLeod Retirement Village.

It’s central and close to shops and the John Hunter Hospital. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. My families happy I am not alone and that I feel safe here.” Jenny MacLeod Retirement Village has a range of units, cottages and serviced apartments available.

A national apology to victims and survivors of institutional child sexual abuse will be screened at Newcastle City Hall. The apology, delivered by Prime Minister Scott Morrison in the House of Representatives, is set to be shown in the hall’s banquet room at 11am on Monday 22 October. Newcastle federal MP Sharon Claydon said the local screening of the national apology was a specific request from survivors who took part in face-to-face apology consultations. “Survivors in Newcastle made it clear they wanted the option to attend the local apology event, where they could be in a supportive environment with family and friends,” she said. “The national apology will

provide an historic opportunity for the Parliament of Australia to acknowledge the wrongs of the past and, on behalf of the nation, say sorry.” Newcastle lord mayor Nuatali Nelmes said the apology would mark an important milestone in addressing an abhorrent chapter in Australia’s history. “Importantly, the national apology will recognise the bravery of those who survived child sexual abuse, and those who fought to expose it,” she said. The National Apology Information Line – 1800 604 604 – enables survivors and their supporters to seek further information about all aspects of the apology and the arrangements for its delivery.

Jason Benn shaves his daughter Natalie’s hair at Caves Beach Gym. Photo: Peter Stoop

Many women and girls will tell of the great hair-length paradox that seems to exist only for them. Have long hair; cut it short; regret ensues. It’s a vicious cycle. But not for young Natalie Benn – not this time. The courageous 11-year-old from Caves Beach returned to school this week sans her blonde, shoulder-length locks, which she bravely shaved off in support of the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. A bunch of Natalie’s friends, family, and community members turned out to Caves Beach Gym last Friday to see her take the plunge. Speaking to Natalie ahead of the shave, Newcastle Weekly asked if she was at all nervous. “Not really,” she replied. “I’m mostly excited. The only thing is my family is going to Canada for Christmas, so I might have to wear a beanie. “A lot of people have asked me if I’m nervous about how I’ll look, but I don’t really care. “I used to have long hair and I regretted getting it cut, but this

time, I’ll be helping others, so I won’t have any regrets.” Natalie was initially inspired by her older cousins who took the Shave for a Cure challenge a few months ago. “I couldn’t get the idea out of my head; I asked mum, ‘Is it crazy if I do this?’” Clearly, mum Eileen didn’t think so, and set about helping her daughter plan the initiative. Natalie was also moved by a friend of hers in Canada, who has beaten leukaemia twice, and one of her friend’s mums, who is terminally ill. She has well exceeded her $1,500 fundraising goal, bringing in more than $2,300 to date. “I was so surprised by how much people donated; I’m really grateful,” Natalie said. Donations are open until Friday 9 November. Go to donate.grassrootz. com/acrf/cut-or-colour-for-acrf/ natalies-shave-for-a-cure to support Natalie’s fundraising campaign. - Georgia Osland

news March to descend on city and demand equality It’s a time to lament the loss of, and harm to, Australian women and girls, and pioneer a path to a violence-free nation. Hundreds of women – and men – are expected to turn out in droves to Newcastle and Lake Macquarie’s respective Reclaim the Night events on Friday 26 October. The annual campaign aims to draw attention to sexual violence against women in all forms, from assault to lewd comments and the objectification of women. The movement was born in Leeds, England, in 1977, and demanded that women be able to move freely throughout public spaces at night. Twenty years later, in 1997, Reclaim the Night Australia was founded. Australian Bureau of Statistics

data shows roughly one in five women have experienced sexual assault since the age of 15. Eastlakes Domestic Violence Committee chairperson, Jess Salvador, who helped to organise Reclaim the Night in Lake Macquarie, says the event serves as “a good reminder” of this. “It’s a grassroots opportunity to call for an end to gender inequality,” she says. The Lake Macquarie event will kick off with live entertainment by The Jazz Monkeys and a free barbecue, courtesy of Warners Bay Scouts, from 6pm at the rotunda at Warners Bay foreshore. Men are invited to join the march that follows. “We understand that it’s always been about marching for women,

Eastlakes Domestic Violence Committee members Jacqueline, Michelle and Ros at Warners Bay foreshore ahead of Reclaim the Night. Photo: Peter Stoop

but we acknowledge that we need men on our team to help end the violence,” Ms Salvador says. There will be a guest speaker from Sexual Assault Services, and a raffle will help raise funds for Novocastrian Quilters to make Trauma Teddies for abuse victims. Newcastle’s event starts at 5.30pm at the former maritime museum. The march to Customs House is strictly for women only, however, men are encouraged to welcome the

crowd at the end. Guest speakers include the NSW Police Force’s Northern Region Domestic and Family Violence Coordinator, Sharon Wilkinson, and domestic violence survivor Sherynne Smith. Pivot dancers and local Triple J Unearthed High performer Emily Cole will provide entertainment. Registration is not required for either event. - Georgia Osland

The Law Office of Conrad Curry advertising moment

Law firm in your corner


he decision to have children – or not – is viewed universally as a fundamental right. But the advancement of reproductive technologies such as IVF and the increased use of genetic testing has given rise to a whole new set of contractual obligations and duties of care. Unfortunately, there are circumstances where would-be parents are left with devastating or life-changing consequences. If you have been let down by a hospital, laboratory or medical practitioner, The Law Office of Conrad Curry can help. The Hamilton law firm are experts in medical negligence, and will host the first in a series of free clinics on Thursday 1 and Saturday 3 November, where the team will meet individually with people affected to discuss their likelihood of making a claim. The clinics will focus on

negligence in the reproductive field – an area in which Conrad Curry has a great passion. The three main areas include sterilisation and contraception; IVF and loss of embryos; and genetic exclusion of traits such as Fragile X syndrome, which causes mild to severe intellectual disability. Mr Curry has more than 23 years experience as a lawyer, the past 15 of which he has developed an interest in medical and personal injury cases. “I’ve seen the plight of these people,” he says. “We have medical professionals who are dealing with people’s lives – it’s a huge responsibility. “I think, for the most part, they offer exceptional care, but mistakes are made.” The firm has acted for many clients who have suffered loss or injury as a result of reproductive negligence. Some of these include: mix-up of human gametes resulting

in the insemination of an inter-racial foetus, otherwise switched gametes, wrongful loss or destruction of donated sperm in the case of a cancer sufferer who donated before chemotherapy rendered him infertile, the destruction of rare fertilised embryos in the case of a mother with limited reserves of ova, failure to screen sperm donors for infectious diseases, disease contamination of human gametes, and wrongful abortion. One of the firm’s landmark cases, won last year in the Supreme Court, saw a family awarded significant compensation for incorrect testing for Fragile X. In this case, the mother, whose uncle had Fragile X, was given a false negative when she was tested as a carrier, and went on to give birth to two sons with the syndrome. “The impacts are devastating,” Mr Curry says. “Whilst these parents are

loving and devoted, they now face a lifelong responsibility to provide the numerous health and allied services required by their children to live the semblance of a normal life.” Go to conradcurrylaw.com.au/ reproductive-negligence-clinics/ to register for the clinics.

Bus pick-ups in doubt

Young Keelie conquers all Ten-year-old Keelie Sammons spends most of her time “pretending I’m fine”. In reality, the 10-year-old from Cooranbong battles Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. She was diagnosed when she was just 21 months old, after her parents noticed she was limping and had a swollen knee, which spread to her hand and wrist. But the one place Keelie feels she can let go – where she doesn’t have to explain herself – is Camp Footloose, an annual, five-day program in Narrabeen, north Sydney, which wrapped up last Friday on World Arthritis Day (12 October). The camp is a parent-free experience that gives children aged nine to 18 the chance to play and challenge each other on a level playing field, without fear of


judgement or feeling like they have let the team down. Not just a condition associated with old age, arthritis affects the lives of an estimated 3,000 children in NSW alone. It is painful and can often be debilitating. “For me, the camp is a chance to be myself, as I spend most of the time pretending I’m fine,” Keelie says. “I get tired quite often and sometimes I’ve just had enough and people don’t always understand because they can’t see the problem. “At camp, I don’t have to explain myself and rest or sit out of activities… everyone just gets it.” The highlight of the year for many kids like Keelie, Camp Footloose helps children gain a sense of control over their condition through sharing

Cooranbong’s Keelie Sammons at Camp Footloose.

experiences such as kayaking, archery and rock climbing, with others like them. It benefits about 30 children each year – just 1% of the NSW population living with juvenile arthritis. The camp is an initiative of Arthritis NSW.

Two Hunter MPs claim regulatory changes by the NSW Department of Education are threatening the viability of before and after-school care bus pick-ups. Many before and after-school care operators use a minibus to collect students from schools without in-house care centres. From 1 October, several changes were introduced, including a new ruling that the staff member driving the minibus couldn’t be calculated in the staff-to-student ratio. Charlestown MP Jodie Harrison and Port Stephens MP Kate Washington have raised concerns that the cost of rostering on a second staff member on a minibus would be passed onto parents, while some centres were considering ending their collection service altogether, leaving working parents in the lurch.

news Sowing the seeds for personal growth Camila Capel is determined to help change people’s lives and fate. After marrying her husband, Joseph, in 2014, the couple left their finance careers to take a oneyear sabbatical. Their goal was to step back, understand how to be more useful in the world, and learn about people, cultures, and the purpose of life. While travelling across the Americas, Australia, New Zealand and Africa, they found their greatest happiness came from sharing other people’s journeys towards personal growth. Camila and Joseph eventually settled in the Hunter Region and dreamt of making a difference to the community. So, they co-founded SEEDS Newcastle – a not-for-profit organisation that seeks to advance education in health by promoting lifestyle medicine as a way to achieve a multi-dimensional quality of living and prevent chronic diseases. “I researched the needs of the region and it became very clear that mental health was a big issue,” Camila said.

“Not only that, but chronic issues, such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. “Studying Lifestyle Medicine shows me the solution for these problems, and [it] mostly has to do with people not knowing that what they do – eat, move, think – affects their health in all aspects. “SEEDS’ main goal is to improve the lives of people and promote sustainable health.” Camila added SEEDS was mostly sustained by volunteers, who facilitated its programs, workshops, and health clubs. “Not only are we a non-profit, but we are currently led and operated 100% by volunteers,” she said. “So, having the resources to run our clinics and accomplish our health promotion plan is vital to our success.” One of SEEDS’ current programs, Living Better: A Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, aims to reduce sick days and depression, while also helping to manage symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath, pain, stress, and sleep problems.

There are also workshops such as gluten-free sourdough bread-making and sugar-free whole food plant-based desserts, plus health clubs like craft and chat, Zumba, walking and running. “These programs and workshops are all connected to a comprehensive health strategy to promote better living [within] the community,” Camila said.

news Report rates region’s beaches The Hunter Region has some of the best beaches and swimming spots in NSW, according to the latest ‘State of the Beaches’ report. Beachwatch’s annual scorecard has graded 84% of swimming sites in the region as ‘good’ or ‘very good’ – an improvement of 5% year-on-year. Beachwatch is the recreational water quality monitoring program of the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage. The report summarises the performance of 38 swimming sites across the region, which have been monitored since 1996 by Hunter Water, as well as Port Stephens and Lake Macquarie councils. The swimming locales include ocean beaches, estuarine areas in Port Stephens and designated

swimming areas in Lake Macquarie. The report shows grades of ‘Good’ or ‘Very Good’ for 32 out of the 38 monitored swimming sites, with all areas either improving or maintaining their water quality. Hunter Water’s chief investment officer, Darren Cleary, welcomed the results. “It’s great to see these positive scores, which reflect ongoing efforts towards the preservation and improvement of swimming sites along our coastline,” he said. “Newcastle has been able to keep its perfect score of 100%, while Port Stephens and Lake Macquarie have recorded significant improvements. “These are great outcomes.” Visit environment.nsw.gov.au to view the full 2017-18 report.

Novocastrians can declutter their homes and offload unwanted items by signing up for the Garage Sale Trail to help promote environmental sustainability. The free national weekend of garage sales, on 20 to 21 October, is a popular way for people to connect with neighbours, find new homes for superfluous items and hunt for secondhand treasures, while diverting waste from landfill. Sellers can host a sale as a household, street or community group to make money individually or fundraise for a cause. “City of Newcastle is proud to support Garage Sale Trail and the positive impacts it enables in communities right across Australia,” Newcastle lord

mayor, Nuatali Nelmes, said. “It’s a simple, fun way for everyone to reuse, reduce waste and minimise their impact on the environment while also getting to know their neighbours and others in the community. “I encourage everyone to get involved, clear out some clutter and maybe even make a few dollars in the process.” Last year, nearly 3,000 Newcastle buyers scooped up pre-loved items from around 89 Newcastle households and groups who opened up their garages or held stalls. To find the best treasures in the Hunter Region, just search online at garagesaletrail.com.au for sales by postcode or suburb or, to be more specific, search by item or category.

Cyclists ride for children A team of 24 cyclists ended an epic journey in Newcastle this week, after raising more than $339,000 for children living in poverty. The Ride for Compassion Coast to Coast saw cyclists depart from Perth on 15 September and cover roughly 4,300 kilometres, averaging about 150 kilometres per day. The team visited towns, communities and churches along the way, giving them the opportunity to support the ride. “I have met many hundreds of the children and families [that] Compassion serves, and this ride is all about them,” Compassion Australia relationship manager and cyclist, Rodney Olsen, said. “While the ride is certainly a massive journey, it’s more about

the journey out of poverty for the children who will benefit from our efforts.” Money raised will help the most vulnerable children living in extreme poverty through Compassion’s Highly Vulnerable Children’s Fund. These include children whose parents have left, died, or are unable to provide for them, as well as those who are exposed to exploitation or have special needs. They often find themselves on the edge of extremely dangerous situations like child labour, gang violence, trafficking, and life on the street. Compassion Australia is the nation’s second-largest child sponsorship organisation. Visit rideforcompassion.com for more information.

news Crowds flock to popular festival

Matt Hall in action.

More than 30,000 people lined the shores of Lake Macquarie over the weekend for what has become the city’s biggest annual festival. The Lake Mac Big Weekend featured 12 events, including the second round of the Offshore Superboat Championships. Local superboat driver, Darren Nicholson, took out the weekend’s third and final race on Sunday in front of a cheering home crowd. While overcast conditions and the occasional shower kept crowds down on Saturday, blue sky and warmer weather on Sunday proved perfect for

thousands of families enjoying the action on water and on land. Lake Macquarie mayor, Kay Fraser, said this year’s addition of a food and wine festival in Speers Point Park on Sunday was an outstanding success. “The aim of the weekend was to provide something for everyone, and the suite of events on offer certainly delivered,” Cr Fraser said. “With Matt Hall Racing’s aerobatic displays overhead, the jet skis flying around the lake off Eleebana and the superboats reaching speeds of almost 200km/h, there was action right across the weekend. “But the shoreside activities and attractions were equally important in making the Lake Mac Big Weekend such a success.” The superboat races were broadcast to an international television audience. “This weekend showcases everything Lake Macquarie has to offer and will have ongoing benefits in terms of tourism and attracting more great events to our city,” Cr Fraser added. It is estimated the weekend injected about $10 million into the local economy.

Fearnley’s honour Veteran wheelchair racer Kurt Fearnley created history as he became the first athlete with a disability to claim the coveted The Don Award. The 37-year-old from Newcastle was judged to be the nation’s most inspirational athlete, nudging out a star-studded list to win the award, named after the late Sir Donald Bradman, at the 34th Sport Australia Hall of Fame Induction and Awards Gala Dinner in Melbourne last week. Finalists for the prestigious gong included the likes of fellow Novocastrian and paratriathlete Lauren Parker, Formula One driver Daniel Ricciardo and Indianapolis 500 victor Will Power, Matildas goalscoring machine Sam Kerr, and record-breaking cricketer Ellyse Perry. Late cricketing great Richie Benaud OBE was posthumously elevated to become the 40th Legend of Australian Sport. The eight hall of fame inductees were Socceroos star Harry Kewell, touring car racing icon Allan Moffat OBE, world surfing champion Wendy Botha, rugby league legend Darren Lockyer, fourtime Olympic medallist Drew Ginn OAM, and women’s basketball pioneer Robyn Maher AM.

cover story Jets set for take-off as fresh campaigns draw near

Newcastle’s female marquee, Emily van Egmond, says the W-League’s professionalism has gone from “zero to 100” as she prepares for the competition’s 11th season. Van Egmond, who led the Jets to a semi-final appearance in the 2017/18 campaign, returned to the club this month after a loan stint with Orlando Pride in the United States’ National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL). Orlando, armed with a talented roster that included the likes of six-time world player of the year, Marta, looked primed for a playoff spot. However, the Pride suffered four straight defeats at the backend of the season and limped to seventh position. Van Egmond believed that, while there were obvious differences between the two leagues, Australia’s

premier competition was on the rise. “From season one to now, there’s been so many changes,” she told Newcastle Weekly. “It has come a long way – you know, obviously with the pay gap and minimum wage, simple things like basic standards, and I think the level of professionalism has gone from zero to 100 over 11 seasons. “So, it’s really pleasing to see, and it is making for a much more competitive league. “The US is very athletic and direct and runs over a greater period of time, whereas the W-League is a three-to-four-month season. “We’ve [also] got the cap of four internationals per team and give some of the younger girls a go at every club. “So, there is a little bit of difference there but, with the quality

of internationals who are looking to come out now, [the W-League] will only get better.” Newcastle will kick-off its W-League campaign on Thursday 1 November against Melbourne Victory. In the A-League, the Jets travel across the Tasman to tackle Wellington in round one this Sunday 21 October. Buoyed by last season’s secondplace finish and a grand final appearance, the club moved to tie down several of its stars to new deals. Reigning player of the year, Dimi Petratos, signed on until at least 2021/2022, while Steven Ugarkovic, Nigel Boogaard and Jason Hoffman also extended their stays. Newcastle’s clash with the Phoenix will kick off at 3pm. - Ben Murphy

Merewether Ridge Street Surgery advertising moment

Quality care in traditional family GP Ridge Street Surgery’s setting Merewether books are open once more.


he general practice was closed to new patients under the previous long-time management of well-known doctor, Geoff Lambert, but reopened at the start of the year when Dr Safwat Khalid took the reins. Dr Khalid joins Dr Bianca Sheridan, Dr Stella Kingston, Dr Vicki Newing, and practice nurse Julie Hewitt as the surgery’s core medical staff. Receptionist Anna Lambert – Dr Lambert’s daughter – said, having

grown up around the much-loved practice, which was established more than 30 years ago, she knew its significance to the local community. “We’ve treated lots of families over the years,” she said. “I think it just shows that commitment to patients. “Alison, our practice manager, knows just about everyone who comes in here. It makes it a more personal experience.” Part of the practice’s charm is in its

character as an old converted house, which Anna said felt “less clinical” than some other doctors’ surgeries. Some of the treatments Merewether Ridge Street Surgery specialises in include all areas of general medicine, excisions, skin cancer checks, and bulk-billed immunisations for children, as well as in-house pathology services on

Thursdays and Fridays. Practice nurse Julie Hewitt offers immunisations, asthma care plans, and health checks for over-75s. New and existing patients can phone the surgery to make an appointment, or book online through the ‘book now’ button at the bottom of the website, which clearly shows all available appointments.

Dr Stella Kingston

Dr Khalid has many years of experience since he graduated in 2002, in the areas of general practice, general medicine and psychiatry. He has been a medical registrar at John Hunter Hospital for two years, leading to a firm grasp on acute and chronic disease management. He has an interest in men’s health, general medicine and skin checks.

Dr Sheridan moved to this practice from the North Coast of NSW in 2016. She is the mother of three young boys and her interests in general medicine include family medicine and sharedcare antenatal. She is very friendly, dedicated and has a holistic approach.

Dr Kingston has a wealth of experience, having moved here from Canberra in 2016. Some of her interests in general practice include full skin checks and travel medicine.

Espresso contains the highest concentration of caffeine of any type of coffee, a local study has found. A White Paper report, published by Crema Coffee Garage in conjunction with the University of Newcastle, measured the caffeine content of espresso, stovetop espresso, pour over (fi lter brew), cold brew and French press (plunger) to provide consumers with accurate information about their caffeine consumption. Espresso was the strongest brew, extracting 4,200 milligrams of caffeine per litre. By these calculations, you could drink three, 30ml espresso shots before reaching the recommended daily caffeine intake of 400mg. The next strongest cup was cold

brew, with 2,240 milligrams of caffeine per litre, meaning you could only safely consume two, 60ml cups to stay under the threshold. The weakest was the pour over. At 692 milligrams of caffeine per litre, the average consumer can down two, 250ml cups a day. Project manager, Ravelle King, of Crema Coffee Garage, said, with a lack of existing information about caffeine content in espresso and alternative brew methods, the study sought to “fi ll in knowledge gaps” in the industry. “While caffeine analysis of espresso has been explored, we found there was little information that showcased caffeine content in other methods and even fewer resources that contextualised that data for the Australian market,” Ms King said.

Roadshow to offer tricks of the trade Billed as Australia’s oldest newspaper, The Betoota Advocate will hit Newcastle next month during its no-holds-barred tour of the country. The satirical outlet, known nationally for its jocular headlines and witty take on the Zeitgeist of modern Australia, has developed a widespread and fiercely loyal readership. The small operation is overseen by former News of the World editor, Clancy Overell, as well as firstgeneration Betootan and editor-atlarge, Errol Parker. The duo will present a brutally honest live show, filled with their trademark humour, at The Civic Theatre on Tuesday 13 November. Parker says the national tour is an opportunity to reveal how, in this day and age, they have managed to keep a newspaper in the black. “The reason why we’re taking it on the road is because we’ve been asked how we do things a lot and how we’ve grown from a smalltown newspaper to [gain] such a following around the country and the world,” he tells Newcastle Weekly. “We reveal a few tips of the trade and give a bit of insight into our town and all the different kinds of people you find in Betoota.” The Betoota Advocate’s stories have included fan favourites such as Demolished Cheeseboard Suggests The Girls Are Having a

Real Crack Tonight, Kim Jong-un Promises Bob Katter He Won’t Nuke Cloncurry, and, Australia Enjoys Another Peaceful Day Under Oppressive Gun Control Laws. With everyone and everything in its line of sight, Newcastle has not been spared. The newspaper’s run headlines like Newcastle Bloke Still High on 1997, while, in 2016, Parker also wrote an article titled Mayor of Newcastle Asks Tourists To Stop Referring To It As ‘Spoon Town’. The story was a cheeky dig at two of the city’s sporting teams – the Knights and Jets – after they finished last. “We wrote that during a particularly dark time for Newcastle in a sporting sense,” Parker says. So, just how has The Betoota Advocate managed to boast more than seven million web hits per month and teamed up with the likes of former Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, and Sir Richard Branson? Parker’s response, in true style, was tongue-in-cheek. “The newsroom is now quite big; ever since we took the newspaper online, we’ve gone against the trend in media and grown it a lot,” he says. “It comes with having plenty of different people in the newsroom, who bring a lot of different skills.” Go to civictheatrenewcastle. com.au/Whats-On/All-Shows/TheBetoota-Advocate to buy tickets. - Ben Murphy

Tai Chi master to visit city Newcastle Tai Chi instructor Amanda Heidke has pulled off a coup she likens to Shakespeare visiting the city to teach poetry, or Leonardo Da Vinci to teach art. On Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 October, internationally-renowned Master Jesse Tsao will visit Newcastle to personally lead Tai Chi workshops at Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Waratah. Only his second sojourn to Australia, following a trip to Melbourne in 2016 (where he and Amanda first met), Master Tsao is a 12th-generation direct-line lineage holder of Chen style Tai Chi. He was born and raised in

Batten screw bit

1. Have your timber pre-cut: To make building your outdoor daybed easier, work out the length and width you want it to be and have the timber pre-cut at your local Bunnings. In this instance, we’ve used: 10 x 125mm x 75mm x 625mm cypress posts for the vertical timber, 6 x 125mm x 75mm x 750mm cypress posts for the horizontal timber, and 4 x 90mm x 90mm x 2.4m Merbau posts.

2. Build one end of your daybed: Lay out the timber first to make it easier to understand how the end of your daybed will fit together. Work on the ground to make the assembly process easier. Start with two vertical cypress posts (125mm x 75mm x 625mm) and lay two horizontal cypress posts (125mm x 75mm x 750mm) onto them in a square shape, making sure they line up evenly. 3. Measure, mark and drill the first horizontal piece: Measure and mark the ends of the first piece of horizontal timber so you can

secure it to the vertical pieces. Use a cordless drill to make the holes and countersink these so the screws are hidden.

Pay a fraction of the cost of a new kitchen by keeping your existing cabinetry, but adding the features and design of a brand new kitchen.

4. Drill the first horizontal piece: Drill one end of the first horizontal piece into place over the two vertical pieces. Then repeat this process for the other end until it’s firmly in place.

Choose from a huge range of the latest door styles and colours, handles and benchtops. From pull out pantries, to corner drawer systems, we have you covered.

5. Insert the other vertical timber pieces: Lay the other three lengths of 625mm vertical timber beneath the fixed horizontal piece, between the other two. These will be the vertical posts at the end of your daybed. Use the 90mm spacers to ensure these verticals are evenly spaced apart.

You won’t suffer the stress, mess and upheaval that comes with a new kitchen. All doors and cabinets are made to measure by Australian manufacturers, with a 10-year warranty.

6. Secure the horizontal timber: With the spacers in place, make sure the first piece of horizontal timber is flush with the end of the vertical timber. Pre-drill holes into the 750mm horizontal piece over the ends of the 625mm verticals and then screw together to secure.

7. Secure the second horizontal timber: Using the 90mm spacers, position the second 750mm horizontal at the other end of the verticals, making sure it is flush with each end. Mark and drill pilot holes into the horizontal piece over each vertical and counter sink them. Use the drill to screw that horizontal securely in place. 8. Secure the centre horizontal timber: The central horizontal

timber is the load bearer for the daybed. Use the spacer to make sure it’s the same height (90mm) as the slats of wood you will use to sit on. Pre-drill the holes and countersink them, then use the drill and screws to attach your timber securely to each piece of vertical timber. 9. Make the end square: Use a square to make sure that the end is square. If it’s not, use a hammer to tap it into place. Pre-drill a hole. Countersink it and then use the drill to secure a second screw into each of the three pieces of horizontal timber. 10. Build the second end: To build the second end, repeat steps 2–9. Make sure you use the spacers so that it’s mirror image of the first end. Use sandpaper to smooth both ends of the daybed. 11. Put the daybed together: You’ll need someone to help you with this. Stand one of the ends up and slide the Merbau posts into the 90mm gap (between the top and second horizontal). Have someone stand the other end up and insert the opposite ends of the posts into that as well, until the daybed is complete. Make sure all the Merbau ends are flush with the stand ends. 12. Finish the daybed: Paint or stain your daybed, depending on the look you want. Add some cushions and your daybed is ready to go. Now, kick back and relax!

The ins and outs of indoor plants what is an indoor plant? Basically, it is defined by whichever plant grows successfully in the conditions applicable to your home. This seems like a broad statement, but all indoor plants were once the garden variety. Nature certainly didn’t label them indoor plants. I would imagine glasshouses, sunrooms and conservatories were where it all began. Roses and choice species would have been cultivated in heated conservatories during the icy cold winters of the northern hemisphere, then taken inside when spring arrived.

The past few weeks haven’t been conducive to digging in the garden, but it has been an ideal time to take stock of houseplants. The requests for advice have been coming in thick and fast: should I re-pot, am I overwatering, why are the leaves dropping, what are these white bugs? Many of my answers relate to air circulation, as, often – particularly with large plants like Ficus lyrata (Fiddleleaf Fig) – indoor plants are stuck in a corner, sometimes with good light, but usually without adequate ventilation. This brings me to the question,

Even today, those wonderful hanging baskets full of colourful blooms in England and Europe are raised in heated glasshouses, ready for spring. There are many plants popular today that grow well inside or out in a sheltered position. A good example is ficus. Once the favourite was Weeping Fig. Stuck in a corner and overwatered, it became very unhappy and dropped leaves, but find a spot near an open door or window, and this attractive plant can be grown successfully. The Weeping Fig been superseded in popularity by the broad-leaved

Forever Christmas advertising moment

Christmas lives here


t’s a Christmas wonderland, filled with Santas, angels, candy canes galore and, of course, trees. As is evident from its name, Forever Christmas, based in Mayfield, perpetuates the magic and joy of the holiday season almost all year round – from April to December. When Sandy and Paul Diamante took over the shop back in 2009, they quickly moved it in a new direction. While the Australian market can often be fickle, Sandy says the family-owned and operated business conducts extensive research to stay ahead of the field. “We go overseas to America to [see] how they decorate trees and wreaths – I think that’s what keeps us at the forefront of our industry,” she says. “The key difference is the way we decorate our trees – we give depth and direction to [them] by using floral, stems, ribbons and other influences to create a 3D effect. “That is all revolved around a key piece as well, such as Santa and elves.” Sandy says her top trends for 2018 include using rose gold influences, tone-on-tone, platinum and, for the traditionalists, enhancing the look

through tartan, deep burgundy gold, and touches of black. Forever Christmas stocks everything you could possibly imagine. From decorations, gifts, Christmas trees, wreaths, garlands, lighting, Australian ornaments, reindeer, snowmen, pixies, fairies, butterflies and birds, you’ll find something for every season, reason, and budget. They even stock a small range of gourmet food at this time of year, including locally-made puddings and gingerbread houses. And, there’s nothing they take pride in more than hearing customers’ sheer delight upon entering the store and seeing the reactions on the faces of little ones. Forever Christmas’ current opening hours are 10am to 5pm, Tuesday to Sunday.

Forever Christmas co-owner Sandy Diamante is passionate about spreading holiday cheer. Here she is pictured in the shop amongst the decorations.

There are loads of modern and traditional Christmas decorations to choose from in store, with something to suit every budget.

PICK OF THE WEEK Michael Clayton

Michael Clayton

Friday, SBS, 8.30pm, MA15+ (2007) George Clooney (left) is the “fixer” for a New York law firm, who’s called upon by the firm’s lawyers to manipulate the wheels of justice in favour of high-profile clients. Clayton’s latest assignment – to rein in his emotionally unstable friend (Tom Wilkinson) – thrusts him into a crisis of conscience. The directorial debut of Tony Gilroy (screenwriter for the three Bourne films) features ripping dialogue and an intense build-up to the final reel.


There Will Be Blood

Léon: The Professional

Léon: The Professional

Saturday, SBS, 12.50am, MA15+ (1994) Mixing familiar, if offcentre, ingredients into the odd-couple genre, writer/director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element) tells the story of an unlikely friendship between a hit man (Jean Reno) and his orphaned neighbour (Natalie Portman, above)). Brilliant and uncompromising and at times Lolita-esque, this brutal union of lost souls is made all the more effective by the astonishing screen debut of 12-year-old Portman. Awesome.

Sunday, ONE, 9.05pm, M (2007) Daniel Day-Lewis (pictured) won the Best Actor Oscar for his turn as oil tycoon Daniel Plainview in Paul Thomas Anderson’s poetic and often downright strange epic. Pitting the capitalist’s ambitions against the evangelism of a young preacher (played by Paul Dano), the man behind Boogie Nights, PunchDrunk Love and Magnolia presents another riveting tale of obsession, corruption and greed.

The year ahead will be a time of reflection, possibly even retreat from the hurly-burly of life. In addition to keeping a good many of his feelings under wraps, there could be work projects carried on in secret. Some aspects of John’s life will be uncertain and he may find it hard to confront the facts. He needs to be careful of chasing illusions or exacerbating his situation by overindulging.

20 October 1979





The Full Moon on the 24th falls in your money zone. Material matters move to the top of your priority list and your attention will be on your income and finances. If you’ve been used to living for the moment, it’s time to apply the brakes to any overspending.

The Full Moon on the 24th indicates that an involvement with clubs or societies will be important, but be careful of becoming involved in any kind of underhanded politics. Younger people will be important; you may start a family or take on responsibility for someone else’s children.

The Full Moon on the 24th indicates that joint financial matters could become a concern and there may be family or business wrangles over a property. It’s an especially good time for freelance workers because you will be generating interest in yourself, your skills and talents.

The Full Moon on the 24th indicates that after coping with something of an uphill struggle, you’re beginning to realise that certain people could have helped if they had wanted to. Be proud of the fact that you are independent, open-minded and coped unaided! Your confidence will soar again.


LEO JUL 23 – AUG 23

The Full Moon on the 24th indicates your emotions might take on a life of their own. Being moodier than usual, you could find yourself involved in a series of family arguments. You will concentrate on your diet and appearance and could even go a little bit overboard.

The 24 October Full Moon indicates there may be a significant setback at work and you will need to take a responsible, patient and sensitive attitude towards co-workers in order not to tread on any egos. There will be more than the usual amount of meetings with colleagues.




The 24 October Full Moon indicates that it is important to keep some kind of hold on reality as some aspects of your life are going to be insecure and you may find it hard to face the facts that confront you. Avoid any temptation to overindulge.

The Full Moon on the 24th warns you to be careful of expanding your waistline, as the temptation to overindulge in chocolate and sweets will be strong. This is a good time to put personal savings schemes into operation, but a bad time to risk money on speculative ventures.

The 24 October Full Moon indicates you might find people close to you a little depressing or demanding. Try to find out what’s wrong and offer your assistance, but if your help is rejected, the best thing to do is to withdraw and get on with your own business.

SAGITTARIUS NOV 23 – DEC 21 The Full Moon on the 24th indicates there could be some issues brewing at work so it might be a good idea to think before you act! If you’ve any common sense at all, which you usually do, you will learn to listen to your loved ones’ advice on money.

AQUARIUS JAN 21 – FEB 19 The 24 October Full Moon indicates troubles on the domestic front. The ups and downs of a relationship may be what keeps it going, but once you are seen to protect your own interests, your position will be strengthened. Your hormones are strong and romance is on your mind.

PISCES FEB 20 – MAR 20 The Full Moon on the 24th warns you to be especially careful when driving as accidents of all kinds are likely. Also, an error in your judgment is likely to cause someone else confusion. There may be some exciting news in connection with legal or insurance matters or investments.

No more thong blowouts

Pen your imagination

Have you ever had a blowout in your thongs? Ever wanted to change the colour combo without needing to buy a new pair? Minimise the dreaded blowout with Boomerangz interchangeable thongs. If the strap pulls out of the base, the patented boomerang-shaped plugs are designed to easily slide back through at a certain angle, so you won’t have to hop around with a broken thong. If you find a strap does break, Boomerangz will replace it for free. The boomerang plug allows the straps and bases to become interchangeable, so you can design your own and create many different colour combinations. View the range at boomerangzthongs.com.au

Pilot Pen celebrates 100 years of pen power this year with the launch of a revolutionary new multi-purpose paint marker, the Pintor. Available in 13 vibrant water-based colours, Pilot Pintor can be used on many different surfaces, including metal, glass, wood, fabric and ceramic, making it perfect for marking, labelling, decorating and more. It lends itself to a variety of uses, from everyday writing to craft, customisation, scrapbooking and DIY projects. The only limit is your imagination. Choose from a broad tip (RRP $5.95) or extra fine, fine, or medium (RRP $4.95). Go to pilotpen.com.au

My favourite things ANNA It’s been a great year for us and we finally got married. I am so lucky to have such an encouraging and supportive partner.


I love mixing exercise and salt water together as it is the cure for anything for me, whether that is taking my paddleboard out or going for a swim. I was very fortunate in growing up in Newcastle by the beach.

Tim Robards


The Robards Method has given me a platform to help others achieve their goals by living a healthier and more vibrant life.


Born and raised in Newcastle, Tim Robards has one of the most chiselled and recognisable faces (and body) in Australia and is known for his dedication to health, fitness, and clean living. Already a successful Sydney chiropractor, his lead role on the first Australian version of hit television show, The Bachelor, launched Tim into the spotlight. This ratings winner was soon followed by guest appearances on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, Dancing With The Stars, and Australian Ninja Warrior. He is currently appearing on Neighbours. Alongside his passions for health and wellness, travel and fashion, Tim has appeared on more than 25 Men’s Health covers around the world, including Australia, USA, Germany and South Africa. For his work with charity, Tim supports the National Breast Cancer Foundation and Run Australia. 70


I value always trying to challenge my body and mind in different ways by doing different forms of exercise, including boxing, gymnastics, and ninja training.


Travel is one of the best forms of education; meeting people from all different walks of life, experiencing different cultures and seeing the beauty that the rest of the world has to offer.
