Dry Creek starts in the Mt Lofty Ranges and travels for 28km before entering Gulf St Vincent at Barker Inlet. On its way it collects 1/3 of Adelaide's storm water runoff - no wonder it brings so much debris and rubbish with it. When the water reaches Mawson Lakes it is captured, treated in the wetlands then stored underground and used as part of the recycled water system; and that's why ML is so green. Enjoy the rain!

Our July cover shows Dry Creek in flood. In Adelaide we enjoy a Mediterranean type climate - hot, dry summers and mild wet winters. At this time of year our rivers brim with water, the low bridges go under and the floodplains are a feeding ground for birds. An arresting vista.

have your say...

Letterbox warning Just want to let our community readers know that our letterbox was stolen overnight. We had a very sturdy, charcoal grey sandstone letterbox cemented to a row of pavers, which have also gone. It’s going to cost about $400 to buy a new letterbox, then there’s the additional cost of replacing the pavers, cement and new house numbers. The thing that unsettles me the most is knowing that someone must have planned to steal it and was on our property while we were asleep. We take pride in our house and work hard to maintain a nice presentation and then someone just comes along and thinks it’s OK to steal and cause damage to our property. So be warned, make sure that your own letterbox is very secure and be alert to strangers in your street. I have made a formal report to the police and also advised our neighbourhood police team. - Cassandra Curtis, Greenstead Street A family read My whole family loves reading MLL every month. I am the Community Impact Coordinator at United Way which supports children to read and read aloud. My interest is in community engagement and MLL does this very well so I always take notice. My daughter (12) flips through the mag and gets excited when she sees people she knows. My son (15) likes to know what’s going. The front cover is a talking point with all of us and we like to do the quizzes too. Kerry Davies

Who keeps the kids? So Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have split up. There’s really only one question . . . who’s keeps Pistol and Boo? Problem Address I’m a resident of 4 Maple Circuit Mawson Lakes and my neighbour lives in 4 Maple Court, Mawson Lakes. Having a Maple “CT" and “CCT" within close distance is a real problem. I’ve lost count of how many times our mail has gone to his address and vice versa. It’s confusing for couriers and this is an Emergency Services risk also. We have made numerous contacts with Australia Post and I have contacted Council who say it may take some time to resolve. I have lived here for more than 3 years. Does anyone else suffer a similar problem? - Adam Glass Giant machines in Mawson Lakes The roads of ML are getting a new surface. A giant machine, called a "profiler" is used to strip the surface and load it directly into a truck, while others sweep and lift any remaining bits prior to relaying. Made in Germany, the profiler has some three hundred teeth on rollers mounted underneath, and the cutting depth is controlled from a computer operated at the rear, leaving the driver to concentrate on positioning from his open cab on top. - Mike Holtby

Satellite ground station opens in Mawson Lakes As you drive along Park Way in Mawson Lakes, on the corner of Third Ave, you will see two huge new satellite dishes beaming towards the sky. The satellite ground station is operated by the commercial satellite communications company SpeedCast which has recently launched these new dishes to assist Australia with its defence strategy and also extend the ability of overseas countries to communicate with their military forces in the Indian and Asia Pacific region. The ground station is providing military communication services from its Mawson Lakes facility to several governments, including the US and UK governments in addition to the Australian Government. Speaking at the opening ceremony last month, British High Commissioner Menna Rawlings said the satellite station highlights the importance of the Asia Pacific region particularly with tensions remaining high in the South China Sea. "The United Kingdom has boosted its communication capabilities in South-East

Asia by opening a satellite ground station in Adelaide," she said. "Territorial disputes over uninhabited rocks and reefs have the potential to generate enough friction in international affairs to spark a confrontation," Ms Rawlings said. The Skynet 5A military communications satellite system has been moved 67,000 kilometres from above the Middle East into the South-East Asia region by Airbus Defence and Space and puts British military communications on a secure frequency. The two 11 metre antennas at Mawson Lakes track satellites 23,000 miles away. The Australian facility joins a chain of worldwide teleports in France, Germany, Norway, the UK and the US in providing global coverage in both fixed and mobile satellite services. Ed

Connectivity is the future for business Bricks and mortar no longer make up the infrastructure of business; it’s all about IT, Scott Hicks, former managing director of Adam Internet and now CEO of YourDC, Australia’s biggest data centre, told an audience of business people at Mawson Lakes. YourDC business owners and IT superstars, Scott Hicks and Greg Siegele, former director of Ratbag Games, explained how they have invested $30 million in an innovative data centre in Edinburgh Parks which has the highest levels of security, disaster recover and connectivity in SA. Scott told the capacity audience that information technology now drives business development and competitiveness and it is expanding at a huge rate. "With the NBN rollout and the mass move to cloud computing, SA will soon face a shortage of data storage space and associated infrastructure, so our company has bought a 6000sq/m site at Edinburgh Parks to house the data centre," he said.

Executive director of the company, Greg Siegele, illustrated Bruce Jacobssen from EziCleen talking how the business with Scott Hicks CEO of YourDC. facility has multiple power sources to ensure services do not go down if there is a power disruption. "Organisations can lose millions of dollars because of outages caused by anything from an earthquake (as in Christchurch), to sabotage, a flood, or even a terrorist attack. This can be catastrophic for business. In Adelaide, outages in recent times have caused disruptions that are not acceptable in a digitally based economy." Scott said that YourDC is one of the top-rated data centres in SA and is designed to be an energy efficient operation at every level which brings a cost advantage to customers. Ed

Personal Lingerie Styling with Julie Did you know that more than eighty percent of women wear the wrong bra? Do you find that your bra rises at the back, the straps slip off your shoulders or you have bulges around your arms? The best way to overcome these problems is to invest in a good fitting bra. I have been fitting women for lingerie for more than 20 years and I know how much better a woman looks and feels when she has the correct underwear for her shape and size.

New Business - Studio with a view A seat in the Boho Studio on Lakeside offers more than a hair and beauty style, it offers the best view in Mawson Lakes, over the water, across millionaires row, and right up to the hills. The new salon may be a little hard to find, sandwiched between restaurants, but once you walk up the stairs the full extent of the fabulous renovation is revealed. Monica Maddon opened her hair and beauty salon this year to offer women a one-on-one stylist in a relaxed atmosphere. She extends her creative talents to photography and You Tube videos to document the process and show her clients the before and after look. Monica said that a versatile mid length bob is popular at the moment. Another trend is a soft ombre with lighter ends and deeper roots with a soft melt. Rich chocolate browns and natural tones that match eyes and skin are in for winter. "A red tinge can add warmth in cold weather and a

Chilblains are red/purple lumps which are often very sore and sometimes itchy. They are most common on the ears, nose, hands and feet. People with poor circulation are at higher risk. Prevention is the key. Here are some hints to prevent cold feet and chilblains: Stay warm - wear warm socks and shoes to protect feet. Also keep body warm with layers. Warm up gradually - heating up cold feet with a hot water bottle or radiator will cause rapid increase in temperature which will cause redness and swelling of the area. Its’s better to slowly warm feet. Give your feet space – tight fitting shoes and socks can restrict blood flow and increase likelihood of cold feet and chilblains. Get active – exercise is a great way to keep the blood flowing. Be sure to dress warmly for outdoor activities.

Is the temperature in your home OUT OF CONTROL?

Property Tips with Ben The cyclical nature of the property market Wondering when to jump into the property market? As we discussed in last month's article, there is an axiom that property prices have historically doubled every 7-10 years in Australian capital cities. However, property prices do not rise in a linear fashion. Instead they change sharply and then stagnate, in a cyclic manner. In the diagram to the right we see that one full revolution of the property cycle takes 7-10 years. During that time prices will slow down and there will be an oversupply of property on the market, prices will then slump as there are more sellers than buyers. Valuations will fall because a house is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, and buyers who have a lot of choice can afford to be choosy! This is called a "buyers market". Then we start to see a recovery and people’s confidence begins to restore in property due to the low prices and perceived

value. As more people are looking to buy the prices go up, valuations rise, the media generates interest and we go through a boom. This is called a "seller’s market" because there are more buyers than sellers, creating competing for limited stock. As an example, in Adelaide in 2008 the median house price was $460,500, then in 2009 there was a slump and the median house price fell to $425,125. This was followed by a slow recovery to $468,500 in 2012, then a three year rise to $585,000 in 2015. So, wait long enough and your property too will go through this cycle, values will rise and fall, it’s all just a matter of timing. To discuss further contact Ben on 0403 195 339

Do everyday people get served with intervention orders and could this ever happen to me?


In light of the public discourse about domestic violence, applications for intervention orders are often pursued by the police out of an abundance of caution and sometimes in cases that intervention orders were not designed for. A common scenario is when a relationship breaks down and the usual exaggerated angerfuelled accusations find their way into a police statement designed to demonise an expartner. If the police bring the application based on that complaint, or even if the complainant brings the application in person, the court will hear it in the defendant’s absence and will make an interim order if it

is reasonable to suspect that the defendant will, without intervention, commit an act of abuse against a person and the issuing of the order is appropriate in the circumstances. Once the interim order is made, it cannot be withdrawn unless the complainant chooses to do so and the matter will have to go to trial. While the interim order is on foot or if it becomes a final order there is a risk the defendant will be accused of breaching the interim order. If so, the police may charge the defendant with breaching the

Home Loan Help with Joe Vancura Financial planning for a better retirement Financial independence in later life does not just come from how much is earned but also from good money management. It is never too early or late to start a good retirement plan. There is a big difference between "making a good living" and "enjoying a good life." Making a good living refers to a person's earning capacity. Enjoying a good life on the other hand is how the money is spent. Making conscious and deliberate choices about how the money is spent is the basis for a financially independent life in retirement. The four key elements of sensible money management are: 1. Giving priority to savings. "Pay yourself first" is a common edict. Set aside a sum of money as savings to be used for wealth creation. 2. Living within one's means. That is buying only what one can easily afford. 3. Investing wisely. Money in a bank account earning minimum interest will not help to create wealth. It has to be invested in assets that grow in value over time.

Responding to tests As we enter the second half to the year it is test time. Students in years 3, 5, 7 & 9 recently undertook their NAPLAN tests. These tests can cause much concern and certainly stimulate discussion at a variety of levels. As the year progresses all students will take various exams. So what should our attitude and approach to these be? Firstly, and most importantly, our IQ, our looks, our size, our gender, our sporting ability or our success in any test or exam does not define who we are. The test of who we really are comes from deep in our heart. Our attitude to life, how we value life, how we treat others and how we demonstrate our gratitude to God and our families indicates who we are. The decisions we make and the actions we display indicate our internal values, and it is these upon which we are judged. All of life is a test. It is a constant test of character. It is a constant test of our resilience. It is a test of how we respond to failure. Of all the characteristics required for long term success in all aspects of life, resilience is one of the most crucial. We must all be prepared to "have a go" and continually strive to be the best we can – all the time!

In my Garden Pomegranates – luscious red fruit filled with succulent crimson seeds. Pomegranates have been noted in ancient Greek mythology from the 7th Century BC. Some scholars believe that the pomegranate was the forbidden fruit offered by Eve to Adam! Pomegranate trees grow well in Mawson Lakes. We have the Mediterranean climate that they love. I have one growing in front of my house (77 Shearwater Drive) and it is a great source of interest with people passing by. It is an attractive deciduous tree with glossy green leaves growing to around 4m although dwarf forms are available. In spring the red flowers look very similar to a hibiscus and later form the red fruit, which develops over the summer and is ready to pick in autumn. My tree has been producing fruit since the first summer that it was planted. For good growth plant in a sunny spot, water deeply once a week in summer and fertilise in spring and around January when the tree is fruiting. Prune in winter to keep in shape but remember that the fruit grows on the old wood.

Parenting Mindfulness moving into classrooms If your child comes home from school and tells you that s/ he has been meditating in class it doesn’t mean your student has been daydreaming, rather it’s part of a new practice in schools around the world called Mindfulness in Schools. Mindful meditation seeks to quieten the mind and focus attention on the present moment. It is designed to develop a sense of calm and clarity in students and help them cope better with stress, enhance their academic performance and improve overall emotional management. As mental health issues such as anxiety and depression become more widely reported, some schools see this as an antidote to the pressures of modern life.

Mindfulness activities range from developing better eating habits to handling conflict, to more formal meditation exercises. Many teachers who have been trained in mindfulness report that it calms kids down, helps them resist negative emotions, improves their attention span and enhances the mood of the school. Smiling Mind has developed a free web and app-based program that is being trialled by the Victorian government who hope to introduce it into the Australian curriculum. See

Helping Cubs Achieve 100 Challenges This year marks the 100th anniversary of Cubs, and to enthuse the youngsters (aged 8 to 10) the Commissioner for Cubs in SA has set a series of 100 centenary challenges. These include raising $100 for charity, picking up 100 pieces of rubbish, doing 100 good turns, undertaking 100 hours of community service and planting 100 trees. And planting trees is where the residents of Mawson Lakes come into the story. Friends of the Pledger Wetland who plant and cultivate a long strip of parkland that runs along the railway line, got out their shovels on a sunny Sunday last month, and with plants provided by Salisbury Council, spent a morning helping the Cubs of Mawson Lakes achieve their tree-planting challenge. Phoebe Skewes (pictured) who has just graduated from Cubs to Scouts said she loves being outdoors. "It’s much better to be busy than bored," said the 11-year-old who has been camping, surfing, canoeing, sailing and surfing with the Cubs.

Boys and girls aged 8-10 can join Cubs. They then graduate to Scouts (10-15), then Venturers (14-18) and later Rovers (18-24). For more information about Mawson Lakes Cubs contact Sarah Jones on

Stormy Weather by Nigella Lightning and thunder are a feature of winter weather but for many dogs this is a scary and dangerous time. I was walking along Dry Creek one day with my friend, Sammy the German Shepherd, when a storm caught us by surprise. The sky turned dark, thunder rumbled in the background and flashes of lightning arched across Mawson Lakes. Sammy took shock and jerked his lead out of his owner’s hand and took flight. He ran into the distance with his tail between his legs, his ears pinned back and his owner sprinting after him. I’ve never seen a dog so stressed.

Storms don’t worry me, but they affect lots of dogs badly. A conference of vets in Adelaide last month talked about "storm phobia". Organiser Dr Weer told how he had to treat a golden retriever who had ripped its teeth out while trying to escape from his backyard during a storm. He said that in a state of anxiety dogs forget all the rules. Their training means nothing. They race across roads in a state of panic and get into all sorts of trouble. Here is some advice to pet owners from the vets . . . •

Monitor for coming storms on the weather report and think about your pets.

Before a forecasted storm bring us inside.

Don’t go for walks in stormy weather because we can smell a storm coming and hear rumbling before humans and this is scary.

Have a quiet, dimly lit room where we feel safe. Pull the curtains.

Sit beside us and be calm, maybe tell us a story or give us a massage.

• toPlay some masking music. You can buy You’re invited "frightful noises audio mix" for dogs to teach them to tolerate scary noises.

Marilyn Monroe lifts her skirt Wow, what a gorgeous girl was Marilyn Monroe. I sat under her upswept skirt this month when we drove all the way to Victoria to see the Marilyn Monroe Exhibition at the Bendigo Art Gallery. In the main street there was a sculpture of her as high as a two story building. I fell in love with Bendigo . . . just so dog-friendly. First off we had breakfast at the Boardwalk Cafe on the lake. The walking path was a thoroughfare of animated dogs, and I was a new pooch in town so they all wanted to check me out with up-close sniffs. I knew the Boardwalk Cafe was doggie domain when I saw their water trough saying “How good are dogs!" (see picture) so I steered mummy this way. Lots of people stopped to give me cuddles and take photos and the cafe owner ran away and brought back a picture book featuring all his regular doggie clients. He gave us a free copy of "Dogs of the Boardwalk" and I saw hundreds of cute faces across 160 pages. They really know how to make a doggie feel welcome in Bendigo.

The HUGE Marilyn Monroe sculpture in Bendigo

Next up was a tour on the "Vintage Talking Tram". Mummy put me in a backpack and on we hopped. No problems, but it was all a bit scary for me. The old rattler lurched and thumped and made sharp, jerky noises as it clanked along the tracks and sent out awful smells. I got the nervous shakes, but when I looked at Mummy she was calm and smiling, stroking me and telling me what was going on so I knew I was OK. I settled down, put my head on her lap and enjoyed the unusual adventure. The Marilyn Munroe Exhibition lasts till 10 July. Catch it if you can. I didn’t go inside the Art Gallery but it was nice sitting outside overlooking the park. Beautiful parks in Bendigo too, and, ooh, so many delicious new smells.
