thursday 01 august 2019

This week... From the editor The universe has served me several reminders this past week of just how important it is to keep the L-plates on as we go through life. Hindsight provides wonderful perspective of how we once knew very little when we thought we knew it all. And even when we think we're done learning, we're only just getting started. Opportunities to learn new things are always right under our noses, if only we remain open to them. So, my challenge to you this week is to learn at least one new thing, perhaps in an area you consider yourself well versed. This week we head into the last month of winter, and although we've been spoiled with some mild, clear days, it's still quite chilly out. Enter: our cover star – a delish chicken stroganoff. You'll fi nd this recipe and one other on page 29. In the garden, August is the time to tend to citrus plants and rid lawns of pesky winter grass. Flip to page 37 to read more from the garden guru herself, Judy Sharpe. If you have less of a green thumb and more of an eye for green interiors, you'll love this week's Home feature on page 36.

news Community group dives deep on flooding

The year 2050 might seem far away, but it’s already on Swansea residents’ minds Flooding is a major issue in the area, both now and into the future, given that Swansea is one of Lake Macquarie’s lowest-lying suburbs, making it more prone to sea level rise and tidal inundation. As it stands, some streets flood when king tides combine with major rain events, as was the case for Cheryl Daley when the April super storm hit in 2015, encroaching on her brick home near Swansea jetty.

“It came up to the gate and my front yard was saturated,” she says. Swansea Bridge and the Pacific Highway are other areas of concern, as well as the impact of groundwater on homes, but as a local Community Working Group is quickly discovering, there’s no quick fix nor one-size-fits-all solution. Ms Daley is one of about a dozen residents in the group assisting Lake Macquarie council to develop a Local Adaptation Plan for the waterfront suburb and surrounds, including Caves Beach. She says each issue is “married” to the next and the aim is to figure out which measures to take and in what order. “The Swansea Bridge needs to be raised, but so too does the Pacific Highway,” she tells Newcastle Weekly. “And you can’t raise the roads without raising homes.” Over the past 12 months, the Community Working Group has received 58 submissions – via public meetings, letterbox drops and the Shape Lake Mac online flood map tool – with ideas to tackle predicted sea level rise.

These suggestions and more will be fleshed out at a community drop-in session on Tuesday 6 August from 4pm to 6.30pm at The Swansea Centre. Among the shortlisted options up for discussion is elevating Swansea’s retail precinct. Lake Macquarie council’s manager environmental systems, Dean Chapman, says the aim is to assess the hazards and impacts of current and future flood risks. “No one has a crystal ball, but by thinking about what the situation could be like in 2050 or even 2100, we can start factoring sea level rise and tidal inundation into future development and infrastructure,” he says. “Now is the time to start thinking about how we can prepare our homes, our businesses, our community and our lifestyle.” Anyone is welcome to drop in for more information or to give feedback. There will be a short presentation at 5pm and light refreshments will be served. Book online at eventbrite.com.au - Georgia Osland

news Drovers set for desert adventure Three generations of support for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service will continue when Warren Melling and his son Scott embark on an adventure across the Simpson Desert this weekend. The sixth, and most ambitious, Drover’s Run will see about 50 participants travel almost 4,000 kilometres over 14 days, starting in Broken Hill on Sunday 4 August. The event is one of the largest fundraisers for the New England North West-based Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. In 2018, a convoy raised more than $70,000. This time around, the figure has already gone past the $200,000 mark. For Warren, the Drover’s Run is a way to pay tribute to his mother, Sheila, who passed away two years ago. The Charlestown resident says it’s also a chance to spend quality time with his son and support a worthy cause. “This is a legacy of my mother and stepfather, who were avid fundraisers for the service,” Warren says.

“It is three generations now – my mum, me, and Scott; we’re continuing on the support for the Westpac rescue helicopter and we all come from a little town called Guyra. “Sleeping under the bush chandelier, enjoying copious quantities of billy tea, eating lots of dust, and shivering through freezing cold nights – who could ask for more?” The Drover’s Run has grown in popularity over the years. In planning each route and the stopovers along the way, organisers put a great deal of effort into making the adventure unique; something that participants would not usually get to experience. Drivers are set to pass through the likes of Alpana Station, in South Australia; Eyre Creek; Birdsville; Hungerford, on the QueenslandNSW border; and a host of other towns, before finishing in Tamworth on Saturday 17 August. “Last year we had about 17 cars and this year we’ve got 49 last time I checked,” Warren says. “We normally eat out in town of a night, trying to provide a bit of money to them as we

Have you heard about Specsavers Audiology Charlestown & Mt Hutton? Specsavers Charlestown and Specsavers Mt Hutton have launched a new audiology service to customers, revolutionising the industry for locals by offering hearing aids and care at clear, low prices. But while affordable services and products are important, Specsavers Audiology Charlestown and Mt Hutton’s new owner and audiology partner Emma Beedel says professionalism and customer care is the key to success. ‘The capability of technology today and the opportunity to improve people’s lives has made audiology a rewarding career choice. One I haven’t regretted’, says Emma. ‘In theory we all know that hearing loss can affect people’s lives, but it is often not until someone we know experiences it, even temporarily, that we come to know the true extent of hearing loss on a person and their family’. Joining Specsavers Mt Hutton and Charlestown, Emma is most looking forward to owning her own audiology clinic that aligns with Specsavers’ values. Specsavers offers professional eye care and eye wear and is now extending its values to hearing, offering the best technology hearing aids at affordable price points. One in six Australians experience hearing loss, yet only one in three does anything about it. On top of this, Specsavers research has shown that over half of Australians (57%),

18 years and over, have experienced moments where they felt concerned about their hearing. Specsavers’ Executive Director of its audiology business, Darrel Magna says the audiology offering is giving Australians exceptional value in hearing aids and care as well as the expert service that the Specsavers brand has become wellknown for. ‘By offering audiology, we’re providing truly accessible health care for our customers’ ears as well as their eyes. The earlier we detect and treat hearing loss, the less of an impact the problem will have on a person’s hearing long term’ says Darrel. If you feel like your hearing isn’t as good as it should be, Specsavers Audiology are now taking bookings for free* 15 minute hearing checks. If further testing is required, comprehensive hearing assessments with Emma are being offered for $49. If you require hearing assistance as a result, the stores have a range of hearing aids designed and built by leading manufacturers, which feature cutting-edge innovations in hearing assistance. A pair of hearing aids starts from $1495. Specsavers Audiology Charlestown and Specsavers Audiology Mt Hutton are accredited as a qualified hearing service provider by the Australian Government Hearing Services Program which provides eligible people with access to

news Magazine’s support for a big issue Duncan* had a tough upbringing. Born in Redfern and raised in Taree, his parents were alcoholics and he went on to spend more than 20 years in and out of prison. “I did have a problem with drug issues, but I’m sorting through that now,” he says. “All of my family is on the drugs, basically, so that’s all I knew growing up – smoke pot or go and do something stupid to get what I needed. “Mum and dad were always there for us, but their grog came first.” Duncan was living on the streets of Newtown in Sydney when he finally sought the help he needed. Now, he walks up and down Hamilton’s Beaumont Street, proudly selling The Big Issue magazine. The Big Issue positively impacts those facing homelessness, disadvantage and marginalisation by providing opportunities for work, a stable income, and interaction with the community. Vendors like Duncan purchase each magazine for $4.50 and sell it for $9, pocketing all profits.

In the six months since its launch in Newcastle on 5 December, a network of 14 vendors sold more than 1,600 copies and 200 calendars, putting $8,300 directly into their pockets. “I like the challenge of getting out there and having a go,” Duncan says. “I didn’t know that this sort of support was out there until I got off my butt and had a look. “I’d spent the last 22 years in and out of prison, so [it was] time for a change I suppose. “This keeps me out of trouble and away from the other stuff I was doing.” National Homelessness Week will take place from Sunday 4 to Saturday 10 August to raise awareness of the 116,000 Australians who are homeless on any given night. Duncan’s personal support worker, Steve Cullum, says The Big Issue, as well as initiatives like Homelessness Week, help to highlight the problem. “It encourages other people to have a greater understanding of homelessness, rather than the stigma that’s attached to it,” Mr Cullum says.

news New beach plans Newcastle council has released updated concept plans for South Newcastle Beach. The Bathers Way – Newcastle Beach project hit a wall when community concerns were raised over the council’s original proposal for a skate bowl to be partially built over the beach. “While these are concept plans only, they demonstrate that we can have a bowl suitable for intermediate skaters and accessible for wheelchair sports, without the need for it to protrude onto the beach,” lord mayor Nuatali Nelmes said. “These concepts allow us to work with the community, skaters, coastal engineers, environmental and geotechnical experts to determine more detailed designs for this stage of the Bathers Way project.” The stage also includes a new kiosk and amenities and outdoor exercise equipment. Further upgrades are proposed for the Bathers Way between King Edward Park and Newcastle Surf Life Saving Club. Visit newcastle.nsw.gov.au to have your say on the new plans before the end of August.

Flights locked in

Foreshore feedback

There will be direct flights between the Hunter and Auckland for the next three years. Newcastle Airport and Virgin Australia announced the partnership last week. The airport’s chief executive, Dr Peter Cock, said he was thrilled to provide “some clarity and certainty around these flights” on the back of a successful trial last year. “The first season was a real success, delivering an estimated $5.4 million in economic benefit into our region,” he said. “Importantly, 38% of holiday travellers were visiting the Hunter for the first time, which indicates this direct service stimulated new demand. “The service also provided thousands of locals with the opportunity to visit Auckland for the first time. “In fact, 30% of Australian leisure travellers made their inaugural visit to the New Zealand city via this direct service.” Virgin Australia will operate three return services per week during the peak holiday period from 21 November 2019 to 16 February 2020.

The single biggest investment in Toronto foreshore precinct’s history will help it grow as a vibrant lifestyle destination. That’s according to Lake Macquarie council, which has set aside about $9 million in development contributions to deliver foreshore improvements along the fivehectare site. Residents, businesses and visitors are encouraged to join in a series of workshops and pop-up sessions on the future of the Toronto Foreshore Master Plan by sharing feedback on design principles and ideas for the area. “Council values community input and recognises that local knowledge is critical to the future management of the Toronto foreshore,” property and development manager David Antcliff said. Workshops will take place on Tuesday 6 August from 6pm to 8pm and Saturday 10 August from 10am to 12pm at the Toronto Multi-Purpose Centre. Go to shape.lakemac. com.au/future-toronto to RSVP. Online feedback closes on Sunday 11 August.

news Community’s heart and soul It’s been a big week for Newcastle non-profit Soul Café, celebrating the addition of two new pieces of equipment to serve the city’s most vulnerable. Civil contractors Daracon Group upgraded the Toyota Hilux ute it has loaned the charity since 2007 to a newer model, while a Pinkbox sanitary item vending machine was officially unveiled in the women’s toilets. For more than a decade, Daracon has generously covered all vehicle expenses for the ute, including fuel and servicing. Volunteers use it to collect rescued food, which in turn is served to the café’s guests, many of whom are homeless or otherwise disadvantaged and benefit from a hot meal and a listening ear. This financial year alone, the ute has enabled the café to plate up

more than 19 tonnes of food. Soul Café co-founder, Sue Prosser said, “Soul could not operate without the Daracon ute – it is vital to our daily operations.” Similarly, the new Pinkbox vending machine is expected to save countless vulnerable women and girls from the indignity of having to fashion sanitary items out of toilet paper or old clothing when they can’t afford these basic necessities. The machine dispenses one ‘period pack’ at a time, containing six tampons and two pads, free of charge. The initiative was founded by Share the Dignity, with 100 Pinkboxes installed around Australia at schools and community centres. Soul Café’s is one of two in the Hunter Region, the other being at

makes it easy to access sanitary items when you need to and do it privately.” Soul Café is a non-governmentfunded organisation that relies on community support to help those in need, providing a whole host of free services, including medical and mental health clinics, legal services and hygiene packs.

news Hope stems from iconic brand’s sale

Allison and Stephen Arnott outside the historic Arnott bakehouse on Swan Street, Morpeth. Photo: Peter Stoop

One of Australia’s most iconic brands has changed hands again in a multi-billion-dollar deal. After being controversially taken over by US giant Campbell Soup Company in 1997, Arnott’s was reportedly sold to American private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR) for $A3.14 billion last week.

The biscuit manufacturer boasts a product range that includes the likes of Tim Tams, Milk Arrowroot, Jatz, Shapes, and Mint Slice. Its roots lie in Morpeth, where Scottish baker William Arnott first set up shop before relocating to Newcastle in the mid-1860s. Sixth-generation family member, Stephen Arnott, purchased the historic Swan Street

bakehouse, built circa 1850, in the early 2000s with his wife Allison and began to bake sourdough. Stephen believes the sale of Arnott’s to KKR is a “good move” amid hope it will one day return to Australian hands. “My understanding is they buy firms, jazz them up, and sell them, so hopefully they’ll sell it back to an Australian interest,” he tells Newcastle Weekly. “I think it’s a good move – if something is just sitting in a foreign company and just stays there then there is no hope. “With KKR purchasing it, it does give us, here in Australia, a little bit of hope that they might offer it back to the Australian market. “I think, if they’ve got any real interest in making a fair amount of money out of the transaction, then that would be a good business decision.” Famous spread Vegemite is one example of an iconic brand returning to Australian soil in recent years. Dairy company Bega Cheese acquired it

from Mondelez International, a rebrand of the former Kraft Foods, for $A460 million in 2017. However, Australia’s largest beer maker, Carlton & United Breweries, remains in foreign hands after its Belgium-headquartered owners Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) sanctioned a $A16 billion sale to Japan’s Asahi in July. Stephen says that the public perception of Australian companies selling out to overseas investors is not reality. “I have had people march in the door here, basically, and say: ‘Why did you sell Arnott’s to the Americans?’” he says. “But, it’s like, I didn’t – you did. “It’s the public that is actually selling the companies – they’re the shareholders – or superfunds. “If I had a superfund that was saying: ‘We’re looking at selling our interests to a foreign company’, I’d be sending an email or a letter to the superfund who worked for me.” From humble beginnings, Arnott’s went on to become one of the nation’s most-loved brands. It has regularly appeared on top 10 lists for Australia’s favourite trademarks. According to intellectual property (IP)

Australia, Arnott’s sits alongside other famous symbols such as The Woolmark Company and the ABC. Other popular brands include David Jones, Penfolds, Qantas, R.M. Williams, Vegemite, Weet-Bix, and the Wallabies rugby union logo. Stephen says Arnott’s has played a vital role in the local community. More than 50,000 Australians are said to have worked with the company during the past century, including thousands at the Newcastle factory before its closure in 1942. “A lot of people walk in the door here and say: ‘My father, or my mother, did packaging’ or whatever, which is quite unique because I don’t think that really happens in Sydney,” he says. “My grandfather told me that one guy lost the bottom half of his arms in a machine and, in those days, there was no such thing as workers’ compensation. “But he said that his father gave the man a job in distribution, because he could still pick up boxes, employed all of his children when they were of that age, and gave his wife a job in packaging – for life – in return for that tragedy. “So, it was a family business.” - Ben Murphy

sport Late surge not enough as Tigers claim tight win

Benji Marshall scores a crucial try at the end of the first half during the Wests Tigers’ narrow victory at McDonald Jones Stadium on Friday night. Photo: Getty Images

Veteran hooker Robbie Farah’s 300th NRL game ended in victory as Wests Tigers edged past Newcastle 28-26 at McDonald Jones Stadium on Friday night. The Knights led early when some strong defence forced a turnover, leaving centre Jesse Ramien with the simple task of picking up the loose ball and planting it down.

Game On Sale Save on car and SUV tyres.

Minutes later, another moment of individual brilliance from fullback Kalyn Ponga saw him dodge several attempted tackles and stroll across the line. The Tigers hit back in the 23rd minute when Luke Garner offloaded for Corey Thompson to dive over. It seemed Newcastle had scored again with 10 minutes remaining in

the first half as Tim Glasby stormed onto a Mitchell Pearce pass and powered across the line. However, replays showed he lost control of the ball in the attempt to score. The Tigers punished Newcastle for the error, with Luke Brooks setting up Thompson for his second try of the night before Benji Marshall stretched out to plant the ball down for an 18-12 lead at the break. In desperate need of a fast start to the second half, Connor Watson raced down the short side and found Hymel Hunt, who crashed over to make it 18-16. Tigers stalwart Farah then used all of his experience to catch Herman Ese’ese napping and he barged over from dummy half. Newcastle refused to give up and a Pearce grubber kick found its way into the hands of Tautau Moga.

Ponga added the extras for a twopoint ball game. The Tigers hit back through Paul Momirovski, with the winger scoring out wide for a 28-22 lead, but the Knights responded again. Ramien bumped away from a would-be tackle and produced a nice flick pass for Shaun Kenny-Dowall, who stepped inside to score. However, Ponga missed the conversion and Newcastle couldn’t find a way to the tryline in the final 10 minutes. It was the club’s fourthstraight loss. Meanwhile, the third annual Beanie for Brain Cancer Round raised more than $3 million for the Mark Hughes Foundation. NRL fans flocked to buy beanies at matches, as well as IGA and Lowes stores. The Knights face Manly away this Saturday 3 August at 3pm.

Take five: Kris Kristofferson Three-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Kris Kristofferson takes five with Newcastle Weekly ahead of his Australian tour with The Strangers, showing at the Civic Theatre on Sunday 29 September. 1. What are you anticipating most about returning to Australia? Australian audiences are special to me and we’ve had great audiences there. They’re always looking forward to us coming; the last tour was in 2014 and I think we played to full houses just about everywhere. 2. What is it about playing live and travelling that inspires you to keep doing it? Playing with Merle Haggard’s band, The Strangers, has brought new life to the tours. It’s fun for me to have a band on stage with me again, especially Merle’s band. 3. You won a Golden Globe for your role in the original A Star is Born in 1976. What did you think

of the remake? I think it holds up. It was popular with people; I can still look at it today and feel good about it. I love the remake and think Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga and Lukas [Nelson] all did a great job with the story and music. 4. Your songs have been covered by everyone from Janis Joplin and Elvis Presley to Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson. Do you have a favourite cover of any of your songs? I love all of them. For the Good Times, the Ray Price song; I think that was the first I remember when he cut it. A lot of them happened around the same time there.

Sammy Smith cut Help Me Make it Through the Night, and Johnny Cash was doing his television show at the time and did Sunday Morning Coming Down, and used the recording from the television show. Then, Roger Miller did Bobby McGee and I never had to work again. (Note: Kristofferson’s answers have been abbreviated for publication.)

Red carpet rolled out for headline acts Newcastle soul-tronic duo Boo Seeka and iconic Brisbane band Custard will headline Maitland’s Bitter and Twisted boutique beer festival in November. After a year of non-stop touring, and several months working in the studio, Boo Seeka revealed their new single Rush in January, and will take to the stage with their smooth vocals and electro sounds, blended with spacey synth layered on top of rolling hip hop grooves. Established in Brisbane in 1990, Custard produced a parade of memorable singles, several of which became entrenched in

Australian pop music history. The group disbanded in 1999 before playing a handful of reunion shows and venturing back into the studio in 2015. The result was Come Back all is Forgiven, the band’s first album in 16 years. Boo Seeka will headline the festival at Maitland Gaol on Saturday 2 November, while Custard will follow suit on Sunday 3 November.

We’ve got an awesome mix of genres, with local and interstate acts. All this is in addition to a range of twisted entertainment, which will be particularly out of the ordinary this year.” More announcements regarding brewers will be made in the coming weeks.

the look

The value of self-worth This is an edited extract from The Art of SelfKindness by Rebecca Ray, published by Pan Australia, RRP $19.99 and available from 6 August in all good bookstores. Let’s get clear on something: no one else gets to cast judgement on your choices and use that information to evaluate your worthiness. Not your parents, not your teachers, not society, not social media. No one. If you give up your power in this way, the result can only be dissonance between the life you want to create for yourself and the

life someone else tries to design for you. Soon enough, it will be you that’s doubting your own worth because if you’re measured enough by the outside world, measuring yourself becomes a habit. We don’t have control over other people’s attachment to their ideas of how the world should be. But we do have control over living by our values, and if there’s one thing you can measure, it’s how closely you are living by your values and taking action toward the things that you decide make your life meaningful and worthwhile. At some point, we must take the responsibility for our self-worth away from the significant people in our lives and hold it squarely and firmly in our own hands. The

beginnings of personal peace come when we are able to sustain our own self-worth. No one can give worthiness to you, just as no one can take it from you. Your worthiness just is, but your wisdom around its presence depends on cultivating the intuitive practice of reminding yourself that you are enough. My wish for you is that you know the contentment of waking up and loving yourself all over again.

Self-kindness ritual: rewrite the story of not enough I want you to think about your story of ‘not enough’. The one that you’ve heard a million times, that’s probably been playing in your head since you were at school, or since that defining event when you felt ashamed or rejected or broken (or all of these).

It plays whenever you think of following your dreams, making a significant change or getting out of your comfort zone. And when it plays, it convinces you that you’ll never make it, you don’t deserve it, you can’t do it, you’re a failure, there’s something wrong with you and ultimately, you’re not worthy. And now I want you to rewrite it. For real. I want you to write your story of ‘enough’, the new version that you’ll carry with you from now on that affirms your worthiness, your value, your strengths, your power, your beauty and your place in the world. This is a story of honouring. Give it the time and space and respect it deserves and then keep it somewhere you can re-read it whenever you need to.

in the garden

Spring just ‘round the corner

August is a good time to feed citrus plants.

How the year has flown; here we are on the fi rst day of August and the last month of winter. We can kid ourselves that spring is only four weeks away, but the garden knows – the soil deep down is warming. I have noticed deciduous magnolias in full bloom – this surprises me as I think winter might extend into spring. There is still time to complete those winter jobs, particularly pruning. Wait to prune spring-flowering trees and shrubs until after they flower. It is time to deadhead Sasanqua camellias and fertilise with cow manure. Rose pruning should be completed this month. After pruning, spray with lime sulphur, which prevents rose-prone diseases for several months. Fertilise with a full bucket of poultry manure (not pelleted), then three weeks later, give each rose a good handful of rose food. It is time to fertilise geraniums. Remember, it’s difficult to achieve the

IN THE GARDEN JUDY SHARPE

perfection of those beautiful European window boxes, because they come out of glasshouses in bloom and our climate isn’t conducive to their cultivation. Try my tips: regular pruning and feeding each week with Flourish. Don’t fertilise lawns yet, wait until the grass is actively growing, but it is certainly time to spray for bindii and winter grass and other broad-leaved weeds. Firstly, concentrate on winter grass. These pretty green tufts fi ll gaps, but when they die off, they leave big holes for summer weeds. Tending to citrus is one of the most important August gardening jobs. Ground-grown citrus should be fed with poultry manure and citrus food. Those grown in containers should not be fed with citrus food – it is wise to use a slowrelease product.

In a quiet pocket of Marmong Point, this quality built residence is immediately charming in street presence and an equal delight upon entry. It embraces free-flowing ease with a spacious layout that offers living spaces on both levels and quietly placed bedroom accommodation, enhanced by light

tones and fuss-free surrounds. A generous family haven in the catchment of wellrespected schools, a major highlight is its momentary access to waterfront reserve and the lapping shoreline of Lake Macquarie.

The Devil Wears Prada

pick of the week No Country For Old Men

Friday, PRIME7, 8.30pm, PG (2006)

Fresh-faced college graduate Andy (Anne Hathaway, pictured) ventures to New York looking for her first job, landing an assistant role at a prestigious New York fashion magazine. But her ruthless boss, Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), is intent on making her life hell. Juggling the demands of her new job, Andy begins to question what sort of person it’s turning her into.

Friday

Saturday, SBS, 8.30pm, MA15+ (2007)

Javier Bardem (Vicky Cristina Barcelona, pictured) is stone-cold brilliant as the relentless killer who leaves no witnesses to his bloody pursuit of down-to-earth Texan cowboy Josh Brolin and the stash of stolen cash he found in the desert. Also on the hunt for the dough is hired gun Woody Harrelson, whose mouth is as big as his stetson, while Tommy Lee Jones is the world-weary sheriff.

Blade Runner 2049 Saturday, GO!, 8.50pm, M (2017)

Taking on a classic is no easy feat, but Blade Runner 2049 seamlessly adds a new chapter to Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi masterpiece. Ryan Gosling (pictured) captivates in a spot-on, subtle performance as blade runner K, taking over from Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard. Set 30 years after the original, K must track down and retire a pivotal replicant. Exploring existential themes, this sophisticated, visually stunning sequel paints a vivid world, artfully paying homage to the original. A brooding rumination on the essence of being human, it’s a must-see. Also stars Robin Wright and Jared Leto.

in the stars ARIES 21 MAR – 20 APR

CANCER 22 JUNE – 22 JULY

LIBRA 24 SEPT – 23 OCT

CAPRICORN 22 DEC – 20 JAN

Neptune retrograde exposes your realities to the light, so it’s extremely difficult to gloss over any problems. The upside is that this wakeup call can be just what you need to make a move in the right direction and start fixing some of the issues that are being revealed.

Your mental energy is certainly increased by the planets, you may be drawn unexpectedly to cheekiness and are likely to be impulsive in speech and writing. Be very mindful of emotional eating and remember – a moment on the lips, forever on the hips.

The Sun is in your 12th house so,

Dreams and visions are the order of the day and whether you believe that your messages come from the other world or your inner self, the truth will stand out in the face of even the harshest logic. The emphasis is on everything connected with foreign affairs, travel and higher education.

TAURUS 21 APR – 21 MAY

LEO 23 JULY – 23 AUG

If you’ve recently met a potential new romantic interest, he or she may appear to be unbearably attracted to you, but is this attraction going to last after you’ve given him or her your all? Possibly not. Once you’re no longer hiding from your issues, you can find some solutions.

If you’re in the process of separating, you need to tread carefully as things may not be quite what they appear to be. If you’re in the process of selling off properties or assets, you may not be able to sell them at the price you were hoping for.

GEMINI 22 MAY – 21 JUNE It’s likely that a fresh perspective is needed for you and your family to arrive at any kind of agreement about particular issues. One or two members of your family will need your assistance; perhaps they have been struggling on alone, but now really do need a helping hand.

56

VIRGO 24 AUG – 23 SEPT You are normally incredibly patient but it doesn’t mean that you are immune to stress. Over the next few months, you may find yourself playing the role of discreet peacemaker. However, you won’t be able to keep it up long, so there could be an outburst of volcanic proportions!

whatever you do, take time out for yourself and avoid making contact with workmates because even over the phone you could find yourself in the middle of a disagreement. A complete change of routine could be a help.

SCORPIO 24 OCT – 22 NOV The Scorpio who is looking for work should step up their efforts as you could be successful. There’s a possibility, too, of you finding a new ambition or objective in life and one that fills you with enthusiasm, vitality and hope for the future.

SAGITTARIUS 23 NOV – 21 DEC Try to prove any detractors wrong by doing the best you can rather than plotting an intricate revenge. The planets are focusing your energy and time on furthering your career. You could become something of a workaholic in coming weeks so don’t be surprised if loved ones protest.

AQUARIUS 21 JAN – 19 FEB You may be considering a move of home, possibly to a distant location, or even throwing in your present career to take up an educational course. Communication is key in relationships. Although you might know what you mean, it’s a bit much to ask others to become telepathic overnight.

PISCES 20 FEB – 20 MAR With dreamy Neptune retrograde in idealistic Pisces, it’s almost impossible to hide from the truth. When Neptune is direct we can be pulled into a false sense of security by living in a dream world, but in its backward motion, it’s much harder to cover up the truth with illusion.

My favourite things SPORT I love to watch our kids play their sport, which is mainly soccer and ultimate frisbee. I am a Ford V8 girl and I enjoy watching and hanging out with Jack at V8 races.

FAITH I have the honour and privilege of teamleading a wonderful church called Life Church here in Newcastle, with beautiful people. Christian faith has been a huge part of my life – a calling to love God and love people. I enjoy being a part of working with all churches in our city.

LIFE One of my favourite things is just life in general – family, friends, being happy, and going to new things and events.

She has worked as the café’s kitchen manager since August 2016 and as floor manager since September 2018, supervising multiple teams of volunteers.

Its ultimate mission is to see vulnerable café guests placed on a path towards increased safety, health and purpose. Sue has a passion for helping people, such as those dealing with drug or alcohol addictions or in need of accommodation, which can be as simple as giving a smile, a hug, and saying hello. “I have the most rewarding job in the world,” she says. Soul Café boasts more than 150 volunteers, who contribute 370-plus hours per week to the community. 62

FAMILY I am married to Rick and have four wonderful kids – Josh, Vanessa, Luke, Jack and two beautiful grandkids, Bambi and Leo. Family is everything to me and I am so blessed to have a great one.

ENVIRONMENT I love to hang out in the country and the beach. I also love camping and visiting places.
