Who could resist this month’s front cover photograph? I have a bit of a soft spot for our Australian marsupials, and the Kanyana Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre were kind enough to let me get a few snaps. They do such a marvelous job of meeting the rehabilitation needs of wildlife admitted from the local community and around the state. Since its inception, the Centre has more than doubled in capacity. Why not consider becoming a volunteer? It’s one of the most rewarding things you could do with your time. If you want to see proof that true community spirit lives on, read the heartfelt letter from local Mikayla Kennelly. This 7 year old Roleystone girl has Rett Syndrome, but her amazing mum is running in the HBF Run For Reason on the 26th of May, to raise awareness and money for Rett Syndrome research. Show your support for such a worthy cause by making a donation today. As the days and nights get colder and wetter, it’s not only ourselves we need to think about, but our trusty pets too. Alexi Christidis

from Blue Wheelers Mobile Dog Wash and Grooming has some helpful winter pet grooming tips for you on page 7. Don’t worry, we’re thinking about the environment too! Roleybushcare has their annual Plant Sale of low cost local natives. It will be held on Saturday the 8th of June at the Roleystone Shopping Centre, from 9:00am to 12 noon. It’s a great chance to chat to one of their many volunteers about dieback or any other bushland concerns you have. Speaking of concerns, Armadale residents have recently rallied in full force for a 24/7 Police Station, which will hopefully have a positive outcome. Our government really needs to reconsider their priorities, when one of the fastest growing local government areas in Australia hasn’t even got an appropriate or adequate police resource. On a more positive note, turn to page 9 to see how an internationally awarded approach to dementia has come to Kalamunda. Hilary Lee of Dementia Care Australia is hosting Spark of Life courses, providing a new approach

young and old, can live life without fear, in a vibrant community that is attractive to young families and investors. I doubt that that day will ever come if we don’t have a 24 hour Police Station. I’d like to ask Mr Barnett why we have 7 days a week retail trading, and in some cases, 24 hour trading, but don’t have a 24 hour Police Station. This government needs to reconsider their priorities. Waterside developments and footy stadiums shouldn’t be the top of the list, when one of the fastest growing local government areas in Australia hasn’t even got an appropriate or adequate police resource. Armadale’s Member of Parliament Tony Buti had a public rally recently, confirming the local concern about the level of policing in our region, and the desire for a 24/7 public access Police Station. As he said, “The call for a 24/7 public access police station is not asking for a significant increase in police to be behind a desk. What we are asking for is for Armadale Police Station to become a major police station, as is the case in Cannington, so we can have more police that are centred in the Armadale region.” I’d like to thank Tony Buti for giving our community a chance to voice our opinions on this important issue, which we all need to make a stand on.

many times, and the times when the phone didn’t ring out, we were told that there were only two police officers available for the whole south metro area. If the person acted on his threats, we were told to ring 000. Not good enough. In my role as a community sector worker, we need the support of the police to do our jobs properly, and to ensure that those tax payer funds given for crime prevention are being used as effectively as possible. Our community has lost faith that our police will be able to protect them. A community that loses confidence because the police are simply not available, will start to lose what makes it a community. When people become fearful, they take it upon themselves to protect their families and businesses in ways that make it hard to work out who the thugs are, and who the civilians are. If you think it’s bad in the Armadale central area, just ask the local residents in outlying areas like Forrestdale and Roleystone, where an after-hours police response isn’t even considered anymore, because both the residents and the criminals know it just isn’t coming. I look forward to the day when our postcode drops off the high crime risk maps, and we can reclaim our community. I look forward to a time when people, both

I have lived in the City of Armadale for 40 years. I also work in the City of Armadale, running youth services and providing drug and alcohol-related services to young people. Like many of you, I have a long list of reasons for why we need a 24 hour police station here in Armadale. Each year, many organisations in the City of Armadale are given significant tax payer funding to tackle antisocial behaviour and crime, since our postcode is one of the higher crime risk areas. Youth crime prevention and diversion is a huge part of my job. My staff work with young people who all too often have been victims of crime, have drug issues thanks to the local drug dealer, or are at risk of becoming perpetrators themselves, because of the sad neighbourhood norm. My staff have been threatened with handguns, physically assaulted, and are constantly reporting issues to the police, with poorly timed or no response from the police. We are increasingly seeing young people becoming victims of crimes like assault and possession theft in Armadale, and being told that they regard it as a regular part of everyday living for them. Gone are the days of community policing, when the local police officer was visible, known to all, and thought of as someone young people could approach if they found themselves in situations that were over their heads. Gone are the days when you could expect to at least see a police officer within a reasonable response time. Just last weekend, when we needed the police to remove a person in our care because of threats he made to staff, it took two days for the police to respond. We rang the Cannington Police Station

Youth Arts Fest Showcasing Local Talent The Shire of Kalamunda is hosting a Youth Arts Fest and is inviting all young, enthusiastic and creative artists to showcase their talent at a public exhibition at the Zig Zag Gallery in Kalamunda. “This exhibition is giving a chance for emerging artists from the community, to come forward and showcase their talent to the public, with a range of great prizes on offer,” said Acting CEO Rhonda Hardy. “In some instances young artists have not been given the opportunity to publicise their hard work and efforts and I believe this is a great way to start.” “For some early teens and young adults, it can be difficult to decide which career path they wish to follow or which special interests to pursue, it’s important for parents, family and friends to encourage and support any hobby or interests they may have.” Budding fashion designers, painters, film makers, sculptors and photographers from the Kalamunda Shire are all invited to participate. A range of workshops were held in the April school holidays as a part of the lead up to the festival. The exhibition will be held from Wednesday 22 May until Tuesday 28 May 2013 showcasing works from artists aged 14 to 25 years. For a night filled with talented artists, vibrant artwork, refreshments and most importantly good company, all members of the community are invite to join in the celebration evening on Saturday 25 May, to applaud the local talent within our community. The Youth Arts Fest will be held at the Zig Zag Gallery, located at 50 Railway Road, Kalamunda. The festival is a collaborative project with community group, All You Need Is Right Here.

Hi, my name is Mikayla Kennelly and I have Rett Syndrome. I am 7 years old, have always lived in Roleystone and have 2 big brothers called Connor and Lachie. Although I am unable to walk, talk or use my hands, I can smile, communicate with my eyes, and boy, can I laugh. I love Dora the Explorer, being in the swimming pool, and music. I have an amazing mum, and she is running in the HBF Run For Reason on the 26th of May, to raise awareness and money for Rett Syndrome research. You see, there is no cure for girls like me, but there are very special people trying to find us a cure. If you can support my mum, Melanie Kennelly or the team who is walking or running to Raise Funds for research for a cure and a better quality of life for girls like me, their fund raising page is: pack_for_a_cure. Rett Syndrome is a neurological disorder that affects girls almost exclusively. It is characterized by normal early growth and development, followed by a slowing of their development, loss of purposeful use of the hands, distinctive hand movements, problems with walking, seizures, scoliosis (curvature of the spine) and intellectual disability. Rett Syndrome affects approximately 1 in 10,000 girls born, so about 1 girl a year in WA. Written by Mikayla’s father, Bryan.

winter pet GROOMING

It is very important that you consider the coat and hair maintenance of your fourlegged companions when the colder weather starts blowing in. Regular brushing at home and a visit from your local dog groomer Blue Wheelers every few weeks can help to keep longer hair more manageable and remove dead hair from short-haired winter coats. It can definitely get quite cold up here in the Perth hills during winter, and as such, there are some key factors to keep in mind about your pet. Using doggy jumpers and jackets are great for keeping your dog warm during this time, especially for short-haired breeds. You can still use doggy clothing on pooches with longer hair, but be aware that this can lead to matting around the neck, chest, and under the armpits. We at Blue Wheelers will help you keep matting to a minimum, and will also remove any matts that have already formed. For owners who still like to have their dogs clipped short during winter, it is important to be mindful that your dog may require extra blankets and jumpers after their groom. Lots of big warm cuddles also help! Remember, letting your pet’s hair grow a bit doesn’t mean you stop grooming altogether. Winter grooming needs are just different to the rest of the year. Make sure your dog is used to being brushed with its longer hair or double coat. The longer or thicker the coat, the more protection the dog has from the cold, but the more work required to keep it clean and neat. It’s important to clip and brush the underarms, behind the ears, and around hygiene areas to prevent uncomfortable matting during winter. Not doing this can result in uncomfortable knots, and could mean you have to clip them back very short in summer to get under the matting. It’ll be less stressful and less time-consuming to clip in summer, if maintenance is done over the winter. You want the very best for your dog, and we’re prepared to give it. Call Alexi Christidis on 0404 485 137 to book an appointment today. He’ll show you why Blue Wheelers is Australia’s first choice in mobile dog grooming.

Our Wedding

The rev-heads and grease monkeys of Roleystone have been called out from behind the roller doors of their garages, and welcomed down to the next Roleystone Market, to show off their cars, utes, bikes, and any other interesting pieces of machinery to the rest of us. There are a number of motoring enthusiasts in Roleystone, and even more stickybeaks who would love to see what you have in your garage. Why not give it a spitn-shine, and bring your machine down for a bit of time in the spotlight? To book in your machine, call Wendy on 0408 920 817, or email us at The Machine Show is an added facet to the upcoming Roleystone Winter Market, which will open its doors along with the Men’s Shed and Community Garden, so that everyone can come and have a look at what they get up to. Maybe they’ll even nab a few more members during the day! We have some great new stalls joining the ranks of the popular ones from the last markets. There will be a broad collection of jewellery, crafts, home-made foods and beauty products for you all to enjoy. Musical entertainment for the morning will be provided by local musicians. If you like what you hear, don’t forget to throw some coins in their hats! If you’ve got kids, Halcyon Stables are coming with pony rides for the children, and Scribbly Faces will be doing face painting for a gold coin donation. The Country Kitchen and Josie’s Baked Potatoes will be back to serve their yummy food, followed by Ragin’ Cajun Luisiana Comfort Food, and the Malaysian Vegetarian Delicacy which specialises in vegetarian dishes. The Ride to Conquer Cancer Girls, “The Escapees” will be cooking up a sausage sizzle with bacon and egg buns. As always, Lisa will be there, serving up her deliciously warming coffees, cappuccinos and mochas. We also have Churro Central and an old-fashioned cake stall, so you can grab something to have with your hot drink. Come down for breakfast, morning tea or lunch, or all of them at once! You won’t be disappointed!

This May and June in Kalamunda Hilary Lee of Dementia Care Australia is hosting Spark of Life courses providing a new approach on reconnecting with people who live with dementia. “On the news we often hear the plight of people with dementia which creates fear when thinking about the future of our loved ones.” said Acting CEO Clayton Higham “Spark of Life enables the person with dementia to reconnect with their spark with a heart-to-heart connection. It teaches carers to understand how at times the human potential can be hidden or masked by unmet emotional needs, and shows carers profound ways of meeting those needs in a lasting way.” Having completed her Masters of Science at Curtin University of Technology, Hilary Lee joined the team at Dementia Care Australia to further develop Spark of Life to a whole systems approach that received an international award from 30 countries in 2009/10 for enabling rehabilitation in dementia care. “The specialised courses we have since developed take dementia care into a new paradigm that enables rehabilitation. They provide practical everyday strategies and solutions for supporting people who have dementia with a shift in focus to understanding dementia in the heart as well as the mind.” Hilary explains the Spark of Life as a positive universal philosophy to human relationships and communication. “If you have friends or family who have dementia, you can learn about this

From 10:00am to 4:00pm on Sunday the 5th of May, Kanyana Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre had its annual Open Day. For just a gold coin donation, the public was able to take a behind-thescenes tour of the hospital, visit the brand new Discovery Centre, and have a close encounter (and photo!) with one of the resident animals. The Open Day had a wide selection of stalls, and a relaxing atmosphere, thanks to the sounds of live music. Kanyana conducts wildlife nocturnal tours on the first Friday and

second Saturday of every month, and we’d love to see you there! Since most of our animals are nocturnal, these tours are the best way to see our woylies, quendas, echidnas, bilbies and boodies. You may also catch a glimpse of the kangaroos and possums that live on the property. Bookings are essential, so please call 9291 3900, or send an email to info@ Adult entry costs $20, with children from ages 6 to 12 costing $12.50. Minimum numbers apply.

E-Watch update week ending 28 April 2013 I realise I probably sound like a broken record, however there continues to be a number of burglaries on unlocked houses and vehicles. Open doors and windows, keys in locks, handbags left in close proximity to open windows and car keys left near the front or back doors are examples. The WA Police website, www.police. and the Neighbourhood Watch website, offer practical advice on home security and safety. School holidays are coming to an end and many students will be returning to schools this week. Please allow a few more minutes in your travel plans to allow for the 40 km/h speed zones around schools to ensure everyone gets to their destination safely. Stolen Roo Bar recovered On the 15th March at approximately 10.30pm, the male accused was driving his Nissan Patrol motor vehicle on Moore Street, Forrestdale. The accused stopped outside a residence to remove and take a steel roo bar from the back of a utility vehicle parked in the front yard. The accused sprayed the roo bar white and attached it to his own Nissan Patrol the following morning. At about 5.45pm on the 18th April as a result of police patrols, the accused was stopped driving his Nissan Patrol with the roo bar still attached. The accused was charged with stealing and bailed to attend the Armadale Magistrate Court on 30 April. The accused plead guilty and received a Conditional Release Order of $900 for 12 months. He also received a two month licence suspension from the court as he had used his vehicle to commit

Did you know that almost 50% of Home Loans are now written by Brokers? Major banks thrive because of the knowledge that their customers don’t have, and you could save yourself a lot of money by learning the value of a good broker. Brokers have saved Australian citizens billions of dollars over the past two decades, and have ensured the healthy continuation of competition with the home loan market. By forcing competition amongst lenders, brokers put pressure on interest rates and keep the banks honest. I have over 30 years experience in the finance industry, including a number of years spent with two of “The Big Four” banks.

As a finance broker, I can now offer my clients real choices, and save them some serious money. Just recently, I saved one very happy client over $30,000 in interest over the term of their loan, just by negotiating a better rate with their current lender. I also specialise in borrowing for selfmanaged super funds. If you want to ensure that you are getting the best possible deal, or are thinking of buying property, please give me a call on 0416 171 926. Bev Krebs, Finance Manager Email:

On the morning of Thursday, 25th of April, the Student Leadership Team, Mrs Michelle Christian and Mr Chris Burns represented Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School at the Armadale Dawn service for ANZAC day. A very large crowd gathered on the beautiful morning, watching as the students presented a wreath on behalf of the school. Head Girl, Elouise Bogoni said that attending the ceremony was a thought-provoking occasion which

gave her the opportunity to reflect with gratitude to all those who gave so much for us. The rest of the leadership team agreed with Elouise that attending the morning service provided a great opportunity for them to learn more about what the ANZACS did for us. Overall, the morning was a success and the students who represented Good Shepherd were wonderful models of leadership.

Good Shepherd Feast Day

Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School students, staff and parents recently had the chance to learn more about the history of their school and surrounding area as part of the school’s annual feast day. All members of the school community joined together as one for a day of prayer, learning and fun, where the historical uses for not the school and the land were investigated and celebrated. After a morning mass at the Good Shepherd Church, the community gathered back at school to listen to a story which showed how the Loreto sisters and

early members of the church worked tirelessly to build the first classrooms and original school building, now known as Ward House. The community also heard of how the school land was used to house migrants in the Nissen Huts. The community then walked together to Migrant Park on Brookton Highway to investigate the local history of the migrants, and to learn why the migrants chose to relocate to Kelmscott after the war. On returning back to school, the children joined in art activities and tabloid sports, finishing off with an icy pole was for every child and teacher at the school. It was a wonderful way to celebrate the past, and allowed everyone to look to the future with optimism and excitement in continuing the story of our school.

Keep up the fight against fruit fly Growers should not forget about Mediterranean fruit fly even though temperatures are dropping and its effects are less obvious, according to the Department of Agriculture and Food. Department development officer Alec McCarthy said actions over the coming months would be critical in reducing the carryover populations of fruit fly which growers have to deal with next season. “Getting in now and removing struck fruit and killing larvae before they mature will pay dividends down the track,” Mr McCarthy said. “If you want fewer flies attacking your fruit next spring and summer, then knock them off now as much as you can.” The breeding cycle of the Medfly depends largely on temperature and surviving flies can overwinter as adults, larvae (in suitable winter fruits) or pupae (in soil or leaf litter) in most of the South West. Their development slows when temperatures drop below 10°C, but they do not die and simply take longer to go through the stages. The adult Medfly needs protection from the cold and rain, so will not hang around leafless trees but seek shelter in leafy trees and bushes, such as citrus or avocado. However, day temperatures only need to reach 17°C for adult flies to mate and lay eggs in suitable fruit allowing new larvae to develop. “If you have susceptible winter fruits, particularly citrus, you should continue to bait at least fortnightly during cooler months,” Mr McCarthy said. “Also consider baiting evergreen trees near your orchard during warm spells. This will help reduce the number of adult flies surviving to spring. Adult Medflies can survive the entire winter if protection and food are available, ready to kick-start the next generation.” If no suitable fruit is available for adults to lay eggs into, this helps break the

cycle. So if you have winter fruits in or near your orchard that are not of commercial value, then you should consider removing them, he added. When mature, Medfly larvae emerge from the fruit then burrow into soil or leaf litter to pupate. The pupal stage is the hardiest and most common stage to overwinter, resulting from flies striking late season fruit left on trees or the ground. These overwintering pupae complete their life cycles when the soil warms up in spring and usually start to emerge in September as young adults looking to strike fruit and continue the cycle. “Orchard hygiene is important throughout the year to remove fly breeding sites, but critical now,” Mr McCarthy added. More details can be obtained from the department website at au by searching under fruit flies. Published: 3 May 2013.

Save Our Endangered Animals! If you want to save our endangered animals, then there are some very simple things you can do in your backyard and your community to make a difference. Some of these include: • Putting a bird bath in your garden; • Planting local, native plants and helping out on planting days. Native plants are water-friendly and provide food and shelter for local wildlife; • Keeping your cat indoors, or building it a secure run. If it does spend time outside, ensure it wears two bells to warn birds and small reptiles when it is around; • Managing your dog’s behaviour by keeping it on a lead at all times during

walks, avoiding conservation areas marked as unsuitable for dogs, and considering getting an enclosed dog run, if you have a large bush property; • Avoiding the use of pesticides; • Being aware of wildlife when driving; • Not littering, particularly when fishing. Don’t leave fish hooks, line, sinkers, plastic bags or any other litter behind. They are a danger to wildlife. Saving native wildlife is extremely important, and you can make a difference! If you find an injured animal in need of first aid, then call Kanyana Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre on 9291 3900, or Darling Range Wildlife Shelter on 9394 0885.

Households will now miss out on a slated increase to the tax-free threshold formed as part of the Government’s carbon tax compensation package in another broken promise by the Gillard Labor Government. The latest backflip by Labor will affect people earning up to $80,000 per year. The average annual income of a person living in the Canning electorate is $30,000. Canning MHR Don Randall said it was getting harder for families to make ends meet.

“Under the Labor Government, electricity prices are up 94 per cent, gas prices are up 62 per cent and now they are axing compensation.” “Greg Combet promised that families would get assistance to help compensate them for the massive carbon tax hit on electricity and gas bills but this is a Government that can’t be trusted. “In addition, Mr Combet hasn’t ruled out further cuts to compensation in next week’s budget.” Greg Combet’s promises were clear: “The household assistance is permanent and fully funded.” - Media Release, 30/11/2012.

“No, we will not be cutting any household assistance. We’re committed to it and you might recall that there are further tax cuts that have been legislated from 2015 as well.” - Press Conference, 28/08/2012. Mr Randall said moves to cut compensation are a direct result of Labor losing control of the nation’s budget. “It’s also a consequence of linking the carbon tax to the volatile European ETS,” he said. “By linking the carbon tax to Europe we have given control of our tax system and electricity prices to a volatile political process determined on the other side of the world.”

Reminder to apply for Seniors Cost of Living Rebate Canning MHR Don Randall is reminding new WA Seniors Card holders they need to apply for the Seniors Cost of Living Rebate by May 31. Payments will be issued from late July. “Last year many eligible people contacted by office about the Seniors Cost of Living Rebate after the application period had closed and missed out, so it’s important they know about the financial assistance available to them,” Mr Randall said. He said people who have received the rebate previously will automatically receive the

payments this year. This year, $40 million worth of rebates are available to seniors from the State Government to offset the cost of living. Eligible singles will receive $159.90 and couples will receive $239.90. Mr Randall said there was also a Commonwealth Seniors Health Care Card available to people who are over the pension age but don’t otherwise qualify for Centrelink Income Support. The Commonwealth Seniors Health Care Card gives older Australians access to cheaper prescription

medicines, Australian government funded medical services, and other government concessions. Self-funded retirees may also qualify for the card. To obtain a Cost of Living Rebate application form call the Seniors Card Centre on 6551 8800 or 1800 671 233 (country callers) from 8.30am to 4.30pm weekdays, or email the Centre at seniorscard@ For more information please contact Don Randall’s office on 9390 1211 or by emailing au.

Do you wake up after a night of sleep, only to find yourself still feeling exhausted? Do you lack the energy needed to get through your day? Do you find it hard to shake off those last few kilos, or to keep your skin from drying out? All of these symptoms could be related to a malfunction in your thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is an important part of your hormonal system, located in the front of your neck. It produces the master metabolism hormones that control every function in your body. Thyroid hormones interact with all your other hormones including insulin, cortisol, and sex hormones like oestrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. The fact that these hormones are all tied together and in constant communication explains why an unhappy thyroid is associated with so many widespread symptoms and diseases. A malfunctioning thyroid could result in any number of problems, including: • Inability to lose weight, regardless

Former Roleystone Theatre performer delivers swingin’ singin’ 60’s fun in Hairspray Former Roleystone Theatre performer Stacey Gay is starring in the bold and bubbly musical “Hairspray” at the Limelight Theatre this June. Adapted from the original 1988 John Waters movie, “Hairspray” is set in 1962 Baltimore, where teenager Tracy Turnblad follows her dream of dancing on The Corny Collins Show, and integrating African-American and white dancers on TV. Described as a commentary on the social injustices in 1960’s America, “Hairspray” was first adapted into a Broadway musical in 2002, then made into a 2007 film starring John Travolta, Christopher Walken, Michelle Pfeiffer and Zac Efron. Stacey plays the lead Tracy Turnblad, a character she describes as “not very popular, but determined to be in the cool crowd”. Tracy will stop at nothing until she achieves what she’s set out to do, whether it’s dancing on The Corny Collins Show, winning the heart of the totally gorgeous Link Larkin, or integrating the dancers on national TV.” While Stacey says her role in “Hairspray” is challenging, she has been working hard to ensure a great performance. “The hardest things for me are some of the singing dance numbers, so I’ve been practising my songs on a treadmill, and learning to move without it interfering with my singing.” Involved in theatre since age 8, Stacey first appeared in “The Pied Piper”, and has since performed in numerous musicals and plays such as “Annie” with Marloo and Roleystone Theatres, and more recently,

“Sunset Boulevard” at Limelight Theatre. “I’ve always loved ‘Hairspray’. I love the music, the colours, and the values of acceptance, resilience and equality that it holds. Being a part of that, and sharing this story is an honour for me as an actor.” Director Terry Pirlo emphasized that “Hairspray” is a fun show full of singing and dancing. “It has your quintessential good and bad characters whom bring the cultural differences of the time to life” he said. “Tracy Turnblad is a determined young lady who wants to integrate these two societies, who is also in the usual teen love story. It’s always been a favourite show of mine, because I love the songs, dancing and characters, which are so fun and vibrant.” “Hairspray” will play at 8pm on June 6th, 7th, 8th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 19th, 20th, 21st and 22nd, with 2pm matinees on June 15th and 22nd. Tickets cost $20 adults, $17 concession. To book, call 9571 8591 between 9am and 12 noon, Monday to Friday. You can also go online at www.limelighttheatre. com. The Limelight Theatre is located on Civic Drive in Wanneroo.

New vets have warm hearts for cold noses Foothills Animal Hospital, newly opened in downtown Armadale, is building its reputation on providing excellent veterinary medicine with a warm personal touch. Co-owners Dr Nicole Laurence and Dr Nathan Mannix have drawn on more than 30 years of veterinary experience to develop Foothill’s new petfriendly features. Dr Laurence said, “For us, caring for pets is more than great veterinary care. It’s about creating a place where patients and families can be relaxed. We’ve added a kid’s play area to help busy parents, and an outdoor consult room for dogs which are more comfortable outside.” “If we make a trip to the vet less stressful for the animal and easier for the family, people will get more regular health checks, better preventative medicine, and we can

Food Alchemy with Vanessa Jean With the cooler seasons finally upon us, I have decided to show you a delicious recipe that will fill you up and sustain you and your family. It’s a lovely museli, which is soaked overnight and had either “bircher style” or cooked up as porridge the morning after. It is simple, nourishing and filled with goodness. Ingredients: 4 cups of rolled oats (you can try using other grains like barley, spelt or quinoa) 1 cup of raw sesame seeds 1 cup of raw pepitas 1 cup of raw sunflower seeds 1 cup of desiccated or shredded coconut 2 cups of roughly chopped or whole raw nuts of your choice (presoaked almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts or cashews) 1 cup of currants 1 cup of sultanas/cranberries 1 cup of goji berries 1 cup of inca berries (optional) 3 tsp of ground cinnamon Method: Mix all ingredients in a bowl with your hands, and put into a jar to store in a cool, dry, dark place. In summer, store in the fridge, so the grains and nuts will not go rancid. When you are ready, pour into the bowl with desired milk, juice or coconut water. Serve with fresh fruit and you’re ready to go! You’re welcome to add a sweetener like honey, maple syrup, or coconut nectar if you wish, but with all those fruits and nuts, you may find it

• Bush Rangers nature conservation program celebrates 15 years • Unit instructors rewarded for service to Bush Ranger cadets Western Australia’s Bush Rangers cadet program is celebrating 15 successful years that have seen thousands of young people volunteer millions of hours for nature conservation projects. In total, more than 12,000 secondary school students have volunteered 3.4 million hours to their communities and the environment under the Bush Rangers WA cadet program. In 2012 alone, 1,500 Bush Ranger cadets dedicated more than 180,000 hours to projects which included harvesting termites for numbats at Perth Zoo and planting wildlife corridors for Carnaby’s cockatoos. The program is a partnership between the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) and the Department for Communities. The Bush Rangers celebrated the milestone with awards to three volunteer instructors on Friday, April 19. They are Bronwen Worthington from the Geographe Education Support Centre, Gary Thirlwell from Duncraig Senior High School and Colin Hawke from Mount Lawley Senior High School. In a joint statement, Environment Minister Albert Jacob and Youth Minister Tony Simpson said they exemplified dedication and outstanding commitment shown by Bush Ranger instructors. “They are to be congratulated for their efforts, along with the many others who volunteer their time to co-ordinate activities and events for cadets,” Mr Simpson said. “The community work undertaken by Bush Rangers during the last 15 years is extensive and continues to be incredibly valuable for a generation of West Australians.”

Former Mount Nasura resident delivers share-house madness in cult classic Former Mount Nasura resident and Roleystone Theatre actor Katie Cameron is exploring the good, the bad and the ugly of sharing a house in a stage version of the hugely successful 1990’s cult novel “He Died with a Felafel in His Hand” this June. Described as one of the funniest Australian novels ever written, with sales of more than 300,000 copies and counting, John Birmingham’s “He Died with a Felafel in His Hand” has the record of the longest-running stage play in Australian history. Groovy Boots Theatre is now taking the show back to its pub origins at The Flying Scotsman’s Velvet Lounge in Mount Lawley. The show tells the tale of JB and the various dubious house mates he’s lived with over the years, including Neil the albino moontanner, war-gamer Marlene, sex-mad Warren and Chrysola, marijuana-loving Milo, B&D mistress Deborah and the mad Latvian Popov, just to name a few. Cameron plays a variety of characters, including the trashy Lucinda and post-operative transexual Veronica. “Lucinda mooches off people and will change sides and sexualities to make someone like her,” the former Kelmscott Senior High School student said. “She has no real confidence in herself – it’s all derived through others. My other character Veronica, is very discerning about her lifestyle change and chose her options from one of the best pamphlets. I also get to be Tracey Pitfield, a reporter in the mould of Today Tonight and A Current Affair, and Miss Waipukurau, who espouses the many uses of fish fingers.” Involved in theatre since 1998, Cameron has been in numerous productions with Roleystone, Marloo, Old Mill, Melville, Blak Yak and MESH Theatres and the Subiaco Arts Centre, either performing on stage, working backstage or in the music pit. “The show ‘He Died with a Felafel in His Hand’ appealed to me because it’s totally bonkers,” she said. “The main challenge is getting into character for only a short space of time, along with changing characters multiple times. At one point, I’m a girl, playing a boy being a girl.” Directors Phil Barnett and Chris Thomas chose to stage “He Died with a Felafel in His Hand” because many people of a certain age know and love the book’s cutting-edge, inyour-face grunge-style humour. “Anyone who’s shared a house will instantly recognise and relate to many of the characters, whether it’s a rent dodger, dole bludger or obsessive food labeller,” Thomas said. “That’s part of the book and play’s appeal and success.” Barnett has said, “Staging ‘He Died with a Felafel in His Hand’ is a big jigsaw puzzle, with 15 actors playing more than 40 different roles. Everyone plays about three parts each, and the trick is to make sure they put enough variation in so the audience will believe they are different people.” “He Died with a Felafel in His Hand” will play at 8pm on June 13th, 15th, 20th, 22nd, 27th and 29th, with a 7pm session on June 16th and 23rd. Tickets cost $27 adults, $24 concession (plus transaction fee). To book, call 9255 3336, or go to Please note that this is a strictly adults-only event which contains coarse language, adult themes, simulated drug use, nudity and sexual references/scenes. The Flying Scotsman’s Velvet Lounge is located at 639 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley, on the corner of Grosvenor Road (near Walcott Street).

1930’s Vaudeville Night

As part of it’s 80th birthday celebrations, Roleystone Theatre is proud to present a night of fun and glamour in the form of a 1930’s Vaudeville Night. Having already secured the talents of people such as Paul Treasure, Mark Thompson and Miss T Falls, it is sure to be a magical night. This will be a social night, where theatre members (both past and present) and the general public will be able to mingle and enjoy themselves. We would encourage everyone all attending to dress in the 1930’s theme. Examples include cocktail dresses, evening wear, burlesque outfits and suits. We still have some space left to fill for the night, so we are looking for more wild and wacky acts of any sort, size or description. In true Vaudevillian

fashion, actual talent is optional, but uniqueness is essential. If you wish to be part of the entertainment, please contact either Paul Treasure at, or Kat Ramsell at Whether you are attending, or intend to entertain, please be aware that this is an adult show, with adult themes and content, and is thus not suitable for children.

The City of Armadale’s History House Museum will open its brand new exhibition Well I’ll be Dammed this May. Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones said Armadale has played a significant role in the provision of water resources to the Perth metropolitan area. “Three of the eleven dams serving the Perth area are in the City of Armadale. Construction of the Canning Dam from 1933 to 1940 boosted our local economy, brought in workers and altered the ecosystem of the Canning River, directly impacting our local farmers. “The exhibition tells the story of how the community worked together to provide water sources both locally and to the wider Perth region. “The exhibition looks at how water was collected and used, the construction of the Canning Dam and how the growing population affected water supplies. “This is an interesting, significant and educational exhibition for adults and children alike. I encourage everyone to stop by at History

House and learn more about this precious natural resource,” said Mayor Zelones. History House Museum is located in the Minnawarra Historic Precinct on Jull Street, Armadale.

testimoniAl May 2013 Dear Maggie, I wish to send a personal “Thank You” for the excellent way you went about selling my parents’ Kelmscott home. At my parents’ age this could have been quite an ordeal but, thanks to you and your team, all went very smoothly. Your attention to detail and marketing strategy was excellent, so much so that the first home open was a resounding success, leading to a successful sale. The offers were on the table 7 days after listing the property (even before the sign was installed) and the price obtained was beyond expectation. You and your team communicated very personally through the whole process to settlement. There was never a moment where my parents were left wondering where things were at. Fantastic service from start to finish.
