MISSING MEDS A report by National Seniors Australia has shown that seniors aged between 50 and 64 are taking desperate measures to cut the costs of their prescription drugs. A reported 21 per cent of people surveyed for the report said that they skip doses to reduce the cost of their prescriptions and 18 per cent have not fi lled their prescription at all in times of difficulty.

nmore Park will sparkle under a spectacular fi reworks display at the end of Marrickville Council’s free Australia Day celebrations tomorrow. The event will run from 3pm to 9pm and will feature live music, international food stalls and free kids’ activities. Th is year, Marrickville’s Australia Day Ambassador is actor John Wood, who has played iconic roles in Australian television shows including leading roles in ‘Rafferty’s Rules’ and

‘Blue Heelers’. He will deliver a speech on the day’s theme, ‘Thanking you, Australia’. “I’m going to be thanking Australia on behalf of my parents, ancestors and myself. I’m thanking Australia because my ancestors were allowed to come here,” Mr Wood said. “It’s really important that we celebrate Australia Day. Whether January 26 is the right day, I don’t know. I know there are a lot of controversies with that date but I think it’s right until we fi nd a better date to continue to celebrate it then.” At 3pm, Marrickville musos and winners of the 2012 Marrickville Festival Break band

It’s your celebration,” Mr Wood urged.

f you’re a woman, have a sister, girlfriend, daughter, niece or wife you must read this. So that’s basically everyone – because it could just save the life of someone you really care about. For too long ovarian cancer has been regarded as the ‘silent killer’. A disease that strikes without notice and all too often with deadly consequences. It was something I too didn’t think about until I met a lady called Natalie Turner. A 34-year-old battling ovarian cancer for the second time, she is the bravest, most loving and selfless lady I have ever met. While in the fight of her life, Natalie spends her days not moaning about her pain, or asking, “why me?” but trying to raise awareness about ovarian cancer. 70 to 90 per cent of women diagnosed

Th is week at ‘A Current Affair’ I saw personally how Natalie’s incredible bravery is touching people all over Australia. Viewers responded to her story by donating a wedding for her and her fiancé, a fellow policeman. Hearing her story and seeing her beautiful face touched people and for the fi rst time people were actually talking about ovarian cancer. The couple donated all their wedding gifts to Ovarian Cancer research. So this weekend I ask each and every one of you to ask at least one female in your life if they know what the symptoms are and if they do regular checks. You just never know what difference it could make.

The four most common symptoms are abdominal pain, bloating, frequent urination and difficulty eating or feeling full quickly. Doctors can’t cure Natalie, they are simply trying to give her as much time as possible with her new husband and eightyear-old daughter.

Govt pressure to cost cut could put community at risk VANESSA WATSON

ire fighters from Newtown and Marrickville Fire Stations are being sent to service suburbs on Sydney’s fringe, which in one case left Newtown Fire Station offl ine for 24 hours. Crews from the two inner west fi re stations had been redeployed to other regions four times since January 1, leaving Marrickville and Newtown’s fi re protection in the hands of satellite fi re stations including Glebe, Alexandria, Redfern, Leichhardt and Ashfield. On January 16, the fi re engine and crew from Newtown Fire Station were moved to Sutherland Fire Station. Newtown was again taken offl ine the following day on January 17 from 8am to 6pm, with its fi re engine and crew moved to Rosemeadow Fire Station. Earlier in January, Newtown Fire Station was closed from 6pm on January 4 until 6pm on January 5. On January 14, Marrickville Fire Station was taken offl ine from 6pm until 8am the next day. A Fire and Rescue NSW spokeswoman said the temporary closures were to cover staff absences at other fi re stations in Sydney, which would save money on paid overtime, with crews sent to areas assessed to have a higher risk of fi re. “Due to the number of fi re stations in the inner city and eastern suburbs, movement of station crews is a routine occurrence for staff shortages, training

and days of serious bushfi re danger when crews from the inner suburbs are redeployed to fi re stations in fringe areas,” the spokeswoman said. Marrickville MP Carmel Tebbutt told the Weekender she was very concerned about the impact of fi re station closures and described it as “cost cutting gone mad”. “The O’Farrell Government must

Shaking up Shakespeare Sydney Shakespeare Festival breathes new life into time-honoured plays VANESSA WATSON

hen Marrickville thespian Emily Elise studied Shakespeare at school, she found it stale on the page. It wasn’t until she saw the plays performed in person that the words leapt to life. Each Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday night until February 24, the 25-year-old performance graduate from UWS will take part in her third Sydney Shakespeare Festival in the roles of Hero and Dogberry from Much Ado About Nothing and as Rosalind from As You Like It. “Studying the iambic pentameter and the relationships, it was just so stale. Personally I think Shakespeare’s not to be read, it’s to be watched,� she said. With Rosalind up there as one of Elise’s all-time favourite Shakespearean females and Hero one of the ones she considers most badly treated, expect a sparkling performance as Elise brings the centuriesold characters to life. “Rosalind’s got a lot of gusto, a lot like myself – I have a lot of fun playing her,� she said. “She’s the biggest role in Shakespeare for a female, she has the most lines. She gets a lot of strength in that she gets to dress up as a man for half of the play, so she doesn’t have these bars there like she does at the beginning of the play when she’s just a regular female. Despite her years of practice, Ms Elise said switching between the characters of

Far from stale: Emily Elise breathes new life into Shakespearean classics.

Hero and Dogberry in As You Like It has been the biggest challenge, particularly in scenes with quick switches between the two. “To my knowledge, I don’t think Dogberry’s ever been doubled with Hero,� she said. Set under stars at Bicentennial Park on

Glebe’s foreshore, Ms Elise said the outdoor theatre festival will take place against a beautiful backdrop of the city’s skyline and Sydney harbour. “The production itself is really accessible. It’s really relaxed. Kids and people aged 65 and up get in free, so it’s also giving back to the community – it just

New blood needed to save not-for-profit theatre VANESSA WATSON

he Red Rattler Theatre at Marrickville has launched a ‘Save the Rat’ campaign to attempt to buy the artist-run space outright and save it from closure. The campaign is calling for new board members and community investors as without funding and donations, the new Red Rattler Theatre Inc will not survive. Teresa Avila, one of the venue’s founders and directors, said together with fellow founders and local artists Penelope Benton, Patzy Black, Annette Moore and Meredith Williams, the project has to date been personally funded through hocking personal possessions and acquiring individual debts to provide the space rent-free to groups. Ms Avila said The Red Rattler has held over 400 events since opening in 2008, of which one third were free to hire for various not-for-profit organisations and 20 per cent at a reduced hire rate for various social collectives. While some former directors decided to call it quits, Ms Avila will remain and said The Red Rattler Theatre Inc is now looking for new directors to join the new board and the “Rat family”, with applications open until February 1. “The founding model is now shifting and some of us are now moving on into other creative and personal endeavours and handing over the Rat keys to the next Board and community visionaries,” Ms Avila said. “What we are looking for is a vibrant board of directors passionate about the longevity of the space, our vision and a commitment to build a safe space.” The new board will be involved in the development and planning of the 2013-2014 creative

ost of living pressures are forcing many people to temper or skip doses of prescription medications according to a report by National Seniors Australia. 21 per cent of Australians aged 50 to 64 are not correctly taking their medications to cut down on living costs. 3,188 people over 50-years-old were surveyed and National Seniors chief executive, Michael O’Neill, said the extent to which the baby boomers are doing without medication could see access to affordable medication become an election issue.

“Older Australians are skipping pills or taking smaller doses to help their dollar go further. Even greater proportions are looking for cheaper alternatives, while others just aren’t fi lling their prescriptions at all,” Mr O’Neill said. The survey revealed around a third of 50 to 64-year-olds have felt fi nancial strain due to prescription costs in the past five years. 18 per cent of people aged 50 to 64 who participated in the survey said that when faced with fi nancial difficulty, they have opted not to fi ll a medical prescription and risked their health.

Full speed ahead Light rail works well under way in Dulwich Hill VANESSA WATSON

ajor construction of the inner west light rail extension began in November and will continue throughout January and February, with the $176 million project due for completion in early 2014. The extension will connect to the existing light rail service that runs from Central to Lilyfield, and will operate along the former Rozelle freight rail corridor through the inner west to Dulwich Hill. It will bring nine new light rail stops for the inner west including Dulwich Hill Interchange, Lewisham West, Waratah Mills, Arlington, Dulwich Grove, Leichhardt North, Hawthorne, Marion and Taverners Hill. The Dulwich Hill Interchange, the fi nal stop on

M

the extension, will be located next to Dulwich Hill Train Station and accessible from Jack Shanahan Reserve and Bedford Crescent close to Wardell Rd. A Transport for NSW spokesman said work undertaken so far includes surveying, site establishment, vegetation clearing and commencement of remediation works for rail and road bridges at Dulwich Hill. Marrickville Mayor Victor Macri said the light rail extension would offer people more transport options and relieve pressure on the region’s roads. “There’s a lot of residential development happening in the Lewisham area and at Dulwich Hill… It’s good there’s going to be infrastructure there to give people a choice,” Cr Macri said. But Cr Macri said it was unfortunate the state government had deferred the GreenWay aspect of the project, a bush corridor alongside the light rail.

New artwork by Tony Deguara for Newtown’s Art Seat Art by Tony Deguara, a fi ne arts masters graduate and retired head teacher of fi ne arts at the Sydney Gallery School Meadowbank TAFE, has been installed at the Newtown Art Seat. The work is called ‘Ex-Voto’, which represents either a pact or promise to God or an offering of gratitude if a wish or prayer has been fulfi lled. “For me, this work I have created for the Art Seat is a very personal reflection on the innumerable prayers and requests for help that have been made by Christians, which have been left unanswered,” Mr Deguara said. “Over the years, gold and silversmiths, embroiderers, ceramists, painters and in recent times photographers, graphic artists and folk artists have been involved in the making of ex-votos,” Mr Deguara said. Conservation Medal applications now open Entries for the Marrickville Medal for Conservation are now open. The Marrickville Medal for Conservation has been awarded annually since 1995.

Wines for warmer months

W

e’re not saying there’s a new national dish in the making, but when winemaker Phil Spillman invited us to try his 2012 Deakin Estate Sauvignon Blanc chilled with nothing other than a cold avocado on a very warmish summer’s day – and vineyard manager Craig Thornton obliged with a couple of vineyard-grown fruit straight out of the fridge – we were blown away with the wonderful rewards of such simplicity. And even more-so impressed when at home on a late afternoon some days later while the nation’s heatwaves were kickingin, we shared a bottle or two of Phil’s wine with friends over whole avocados both spooned off the plate, and spread on sourdough. One of those friends later told us that they’d whipped avocado through some vanilla ice-cream – the result, they said, with the Sauvignon Blanc, was sheer summer heaven. At just $10 this Deakin Estate Sauvignon Blanc won’t break the bank, and being light-bodied, fresh, zesty and brimming with fruit flavour, it is ideal in summer with those avocados as an appetizer – before finishing-off the bottle over a main course of grilled fish and salad.

With wonderful blackberry and raspberry fruit aromas and lively fruit flavours, it is ideally served lightly chilled with a summery Nicoise Salad, or again with grilled fish and salad. It is available at Dan Murphy’s and independent stores for $17.50.

Need to unwind? A visit to Earth and Sky Yoga Studio will do wonders

BUSINESS OF THE WEEK hen you want to unwind, the Earth and Sky Yoga Studio at Marrickville offers a tranquil escape from the hustle of busy Marrickville Road. As you ascend the stairs into the studio – formerly a longtime tax agent’s office but now refurbished with love by yoga teachers Sue Kyle and Cassandra Missio – it’s easy to see why this peaceful and light-fi lled space is packed with students for a weekday yoga class. With its natural bamboo flooring and two spacious rooms for yoga practice, the Earth Room and the Sky Room, the studio

W

is the perfect haven for relaxation. “Yoga can provide almost like a pause or a space of time out of our busy schedules, a time to connect to your body and your breath, to ground yourself and calm the nervous system,” explained Cassandra, who is accredited by Yoga Australia. To help mark the studio’s fi rst anniversary, Sue and Cassandra are offering a special deal to interested beginners who’d like to try yoga. Mention this story and the Inner City Weekender and pay only $99 for a six-week beginners’ yoga course starting February 9 until March 16, normally priced at $120.

“Our focus here is on biomechanical alignment principles woven with yoga philosophy. We spend so much of the day hunched over a computer, driving or picking up babies, yoga helps to bring balance back to the body and the heart and strengthen the back.” Earth and Sky Yoga offer classes to all levels, from beginners to experienced practitioners, seven days a week, from early morning classes into the evening. The studio also offers pre-natal yoga classes, shiatsu massage and one-on-one yoga therapy for people with arthritis, auto immune conditions and back problems

like slipped discs or lower back pain. The studio provides two restrooms, a kitchenette, air conditioning and free use of props like floor mats. Finally, one thing that sets the studio apart from the rest is its social atmosphere. Cassandra and Sue screen occasional fi lm nights, hold Sydney retreats and host a variety of other community-building activities for their students. “Our intention is to build a community,” Sue explained. “A community of like-hearted and like-minded folks to share their love of yoga with others.”

It looks as though the males in your social circle are going to be important over the next couple of weeks and will be passing on some useful tips or making some intriguing introductions. So, be as open minded as possible when in their company. Mars is in a difficult aspect with the full moon making you feel rather frustrated so take care when driving, climbing stairs or clambering around in high places as you are somewhat accident prone.

TAURUS

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

Whether your ambitions are of a personal or professional nature you’ll acquire exactly what is needed to move into another league entirely. Just remember the mind is more powerful than any amount of muscle. With the full moon falling in the home and property area of life don’t be surprised if you fi nd yourself getting irritated by loved ones, or they by you. Somebody has to act as the peacemaker, and I think you can achieve this.

Money matters are improving by the day and there’s no need to wait for others to start the ball rolling or give you the go ahead. Your drive and independence will enable you to achieve almost anything you turn your hand to. With the full moon in the fiery sign of Leo it is important that you take care when travelling from place to place, particularly where traffic laws are concerned, otherwise you’ll end up in hot water!

CANCER

JUNE 22 TO JULY 22

The Inner City Weekender

Turn an ordinary event into something special by giving loved ones star treatment. The planets are highlighting warmth and generosity and this works both ways and you may soon be in for the treat of a lifetime. Unfortunately the full moon falls in your fi nancial area and it will pay to avoid expensive shops and to leave your valuables at home. If you fail to take notice of this, you’re going to make a big hole in your bank account.

The full moon is in your sign making you a little bit grumpy and bad tempered. However, if you keep yourself busy you’ll feel satisfied with your efforts. Mars and Neptune are gingering up your social life as well as romance, but be careful of confusing a strong physical attraction with love. There’s no reason you shouldn’t enjoy yourself and let off a bit of steam, just make sure that nobody gets hurt and that includes you! AUGUST 24 TO SEPTEMBER 23

™ Paid supportive respite

The full moon falls in a highly sensitive area of your chart, therefore you may be feeling physically or mentally out of sorts or out of step with other people. Why not use this time for tackling jobs either around the home or at work that have been neglected. But don’t, on any account, try to be adventurous and start anything new otherwise you’ll come unstuck. You won’t need to go courting compliments as they will come your way.

™ Ongoing training If you have the experience, or interest needed to care for children and a spare bedroom, we would love to hear from you.

HOROSCOPES by Francis A Bevan

www.francisbevan.com

LIBRA

SEPTEMBER 24 TO OCTOBER 23

Mars is in your sister air sign of Aquarius and so you’re likely to shine either in a sport or in connection with something creative. If you have romance in mind it’s the ideal time for getting out to a place you wouldn’t normally visit as you are likely to meet someone really special. You need to tread warily where your friends are concerned, as it won’t take much to upset them. If you ignore this advice, it’s likely that someone may leave your life.

SCORPIO

OCTOBER 24 TO NOVEMBER 22

A happy and sociable glow is being thrown over home and property matters and it looks as if you will be entertaining a great deal and introducing the family to your new friends. If you work in the building trades or from home you’ll be doing exceptionally well over the coming weeks. With the full moon in Leo things could become somewhat tricky at work, so keep a low profi le and get on with what needs to be done.

SAGITTARIUS

NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21

Th is is not the ideal time to be travelling or dealing with foreigners as things are likely to be arduous and disappointing. If taking any kind of exam or dealing with legal matters be certain to do your homework and to double check things before you sign off on them as your concentration may not be the best. You are in the mood for fun and are going to become rather restless if you spend too much time locked away indoors.

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

With Mars in Aquarius this is the ideal time to generate a fresh source of income. If you are in your own business then market it in a new way because to your delight you will fi nd that others place a higher value on your talents and resources than you do. Th is is the ideal time to invest in property or to fi nd ways to minimise your taxes. However, you need to be careful of how you deal with colleagues as conditions at work will be stressful.

AQUARIUS

JANUARY 21 TO FEBRUARY 19

With Mars illuminating your sign you’re given the green light to push ahead into the limelight and let other people in on your plans as well as your thoughts and feelings. However, you need to be careful of how you handle loved ones as irritations and aggravations are likely. Therefore, even though others are likely to stick to their guns, instead of getting hot headed it is better to be ready to diff use an argument with an impartial attitude.

PISCES

FEBRUARY 20 TO MARCH 20

Your popularity is high with friends and partners, so you might as well soak it up and be as indulgent as you can. However, the full moon falls directly in your work sector where there could be some disagreements between yourself and those at work. Instead of insisting or bulldozing ahead regardless of what others say, it might be a good idea to sit back and give yourself time to think before you do something you will regret!

Childhood immunisation aking healthy choices for your children can be done in many ways throughout life, however, I see immunisation as one way to protect their little bodies from serious diseases from birth right into their future. Disease prevention is the key to health. It is always better to prevent a disease than to treat it. Vaccinations work by triggering the immune system to fight against certain diseases. If a vaccinated person comes in contact with these diseases, their immune system is able to respond more effectively, preventing the disease developing or greatly reducing its severity. Newborn babies are protected by their mother’s antibodies, which last only for a small time after birth. (However, if the baby is breastfed the mother will continue to pass on antibodies and protect her baby from some diseases, but that is a whole other column for another week! ) Babies should be given immunisations before these antibodies wear off completely. The fi rst immunisation is recommended at birth which is Hepatitis B and the schedule for vaccinations continues until the child is four-years-old and then a few as a teenager such as the HPV vaccine for girls to prevent the virus that can develop into cervical cancer. Some of the many infectious diseases that were once common in Australia

M

KEEPING FIT by David Stein

Don’t forget to warm up

include, polio, measles, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), rubella (German measles), mumps, tetanus, and Haemophilus influenza type b (Hib), are now vaccinated against. My own grandfather contracted polio as a very young boy and although he survived it, he went through years of sickness and painful treatment away from his family just so that he could walk. If vaccines were available 80 years ago, his suffering, along with many others who also contracted polio, would not have occurred. Immunisation is a proven tool for controlling and even eradicating disease. An immunisation campaign carried out by the World Health Organisation from 1967 to 1977 eradicated the natural occurrence of smallpox. Since the Global Polio Eradication Initiative in 1988, polio infections have fallen by 99 per cent, and five million people have escaped paralysis. Between 2000 and 2008, measles deaths dropped worldwide by 78 per cent. Benefit to risk, vaccines are generally safe, and side effects are usually minor, especially when compared to the diseases they are designed to prevent. So, if you are unsure about getting your child immunised, do some research into the diseases they prevent, and think of it as a health investment for your family and beyond.

e all know we need to warm up before exercise, but why? Working out and getting fit is supposed to make you feel better, help you get stronger and reach your fitness goals. But stress in the workplace and sedentary lifestyles have left most people with bad posture and restricted movements. Th is, along with typical flaws in workout design can quickly lead to overuse injuries and limitations in how you move. One way to overcome these problems? A good warmup. A comprehensive preparation routine will allow you to lift more, recover faster and have better overall movement in and out of the gym. It will also help you to restore balance in the strength of your muscles, which will improve their function and your posture at the same time. The warmup charges up your body prior to the workout, increases your core temperature and makes sure you’re ready to go as soon as you grab that fi rst weight. It also helps to mentally prepare you and serve as a transition from the office to the gym. A good warm-up is done in three stages. The fi rst stage sets the tone and

starts with some form of self-massage, typically referred to as self-myofascial release on a roller or SMR. Th is stage improves the quality of your muscles and soft tissue, which helps them extend and contract better. It also frees up some of the restrictions from long-duration slouched postures associated with a busy lifestyle (think about your work office or long commutes). The next stage includes exercises that improve your overall movement and mobility. Full body movements, done through a full range of motion, should allow your body to work as it is intended. Some examples might include a full range bodyweight squat or a pull-up done from an extended arm position until your chin is over the bar. Finally, as you transition from the warmup to the workout, you should focus on activating the muscles that have been shut down due to poor posture, and start charging up your body for the upcoming demands of the workout. Most times, this means targeting the muscles of your upper back and those that stabilise and engage movements in your hips. Th is will help improve the function of your shoulders and immediately work to help you achieve better full body neutral posture.

With trademark smooth vocals and a great sense of humour, these boys plan on delivering plenty of songs you know plus a few tracks from their recent album ‘Brothers In Arms’. For those who want to make a day of it, at 10am the club is hosting a Bowls Triples Tournament. Entry is $15 and everybody is welcome. The entry fee includes a BBQ lunch.

ext time you’re at Marrickville Road in Dulwich Hill, stop at Little Portugal take away shop, bar and licensed restaurant for a variety of delicious grilled meats, salads, snacks and a quick tipple from the Mediterranean. “We have a big variety on the grill – steaks, fish, lamb cutlets. We have the best Portuguese chicken you can try,” said owner, Alberto Santos. “We also serve Portuguese beers, wine, cognacs, brandies and a selection of imported soft drinks, like Sumol.” Some of the menu options include beef skewered on a sword, or espetada, bacalhau a lagareiro or grilled codfish, costecetas de porco or pork chops and bife na Brasa, or steaks, and more. Once you’ve chosen some meat for the grill, you can then select your sides from a swathe of salads, rice and chips. Entrees and snacks include garlic prawns, burger options including a house burger, steak rolls and for those with a bigger appetite the ‘super burger’ – with all the trimmings, including meat, onions, egg, cheese, chilli, pineapple and sauces. The fine flavours at the shop have been honed by owner Albert over a lifetime in the kitchen since his childhood on a farm in northern Portugal. “I played next to my mum while she was cooking all the traditional dishes. We all had to be part of the family and help in the kitchen,” he said. So next time you’re looking for somewhere for breakfast, dinner or lunch, try Little Portugal for delicious, home-style cooking at a great price.

he television world was in mourning last week with the passing of Conrad Bain, who played Phil Drummond in ‘Diff’rent Strokes’. The series which aired from 1978 to 1986 also starred the late Gary Coleman as Arnold, who was famous for the catchphrase “What’chu talkin’ ‘bout Willis?”.

Channel Seven is bringing back ‘Packed to the Rafters’ this Tuesday, January 29 at 8.30pm. The series, which picks up in the fifth season at episode 11, is tipped to be the top-rating show’s last, after the huge number of cast departures over the years. Don’t miss what could be the final few months of ‘Rafters’. ‘American Idol’ returned to Channel Ten last week to lukewarm ratings despite months of expensive promotions. For its premiere episode last Thursday it reached 539,000 viewers – the 15th most watched show on the night. The ratings were also very low in the US, with the once mega-hit show debuting with its lowest ratings ever. Producers hoped bringing on new judges

Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj would boost the show’s profile but so far the move hasn’t. Hopefully Channel Ten stick with the show because I have enjoyed the first couple of episodes. Fans of shows ‘Drop Dead Diva’ and ‘Alphas’ would be disappointed to hear that both the shows have been axed in 2013. ‘Diva’ ran for four seasons all up, most recently on GEM. Sci-Fi series ‘Alphas’ was cancelled by its American network after only two seasons. The series about crime-fighters with superhuman abilities aired on Foxtel’s SF channel. The last of the un-aired episodes of axed US drama ‘666 Park Avenue’ began airing on FOX8 this week – a world first. The show, starring Aussie Rachel Taylor, was axed just before Christmas in the US

due to poor ratings. It wasn’t due to been shown in Australia until the American summer however, FOX8 have been given the go-ahead to air the final episodes now rather than wait six months, meaning we will get to see the show’s finish before America does! Catch the final episodes on Monday nights from 9.30pm. The much-hyped show ‘Elementary’ stars Jonny Lee Miller as detective Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson in a modern-day drama about a crime-solving duo who crack the NYPD’s most impossible cases. This revamped classic tale premieres on Channel Ten on Sunday, February 3 at 8.30pm. The series is doing really well in the US and should do well here considering the amount of Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts around after the highly acclaimed films.

This free event will take place on January 26 from 12pm to 8pm at The Rocks and its surrounding areas, including George Street, First Fleet Park and Dawes Point Park under the Harbour Bridge and is certain to be a memorable way to celebrate Australia Day.

2001: A Space Odyssey Arguably the most revered and controversial science fiction film of all time, ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ is back in a completely new way. One of the most exciting events in the Sydney Festival line-up, you can experience Kubrick’s classic sci-fi film alongside a live soundtrack from Sydney Symphony and Sydney Philharmonia Choirs. Considered strange for its use of classical music in a science fiction film when it was first released, today the movie is regarded as the perfect example of harmony between visuals and sound in film. Tickets start from $55. For more information visit www.sydneyfestival.org.au.

Ben & Jerry’s Open-air Cinemas Celebrate summer with great films, good company and a beautiful view of Bondi beach at the Ben & Jerry’s open-air Cinema. Visitors can arrive early and purchase tasty snacks while listening to talented emerging artists. Those who book for a Sunday movie screening will even have the chance to sample some tasty Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream. For more information visit www.openaircinemas. com.au/bondi.

Skylanders Giants Unfortunately for students, the school holidays are almost over! Get the most out of what’s left of your holidays with a trip to Newtown Library, where young gamers can come together and play the popular Nintendo Wii game ‘Skylanders Giants’. The gaming sessions will run until January 31. Bookings are essential for this free event. For more information or to book phone 8512 4250 or email library@ cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au.

Dave Tice and Mark Evans Aussie music legends Dave Tice and Mark Evans make a welcomed return to the inner West on Australia Day after the demise of the Sandringham Hotel saw the end of their long standing residency there late last year. They play a free gig at Marrickville Bowling Club at 3pm on January 26 and the partners in crime are looking forward to getting their blues groove back on again. Tice, who has played his way around the world with bands such as Buffalo and The Count Bishops will be giving his guitar collection a workout. Evans, former bass player with AC/DC and The Party Boys, swaps to acoustic guitar with all the skill of a man who has done the hard yards through years of performing live both in Australia and all over the world. With trademark smooth vocals and a great sense of humour, these boys plan on delivering plenty of songs you know plus a few tracks from their recent album ‘Brothers In Arms’.

Sculpture 2013 This popular annual event is now in its 15th year and is still considered an important event for artists. Held at the Brenda May Gallery, the event features the work of Senden Blackwood, Joel Bliss, Kelly-Ann Lees, Barbara Licha and more talented sculptural artists. The free event will be held until February 9 from 11am to 6pm from Tuesday to Friday and 10am to 6pm and Saturday. For more information visit www.brendamaygallery. com.au.

Sydney Observatory If your kids dream of being astronauts and seeing the stars, a trip to the Sydney Observatory could be the perfect way to finish the school holidays. The Observatory has a jam-packed schedule for kids, including a 3D space theatre and telescope tour. The tour allows visitors to explore the beautiful galaxy in 3D and marvel at the stars and planets. Afterwards, they will even have the opportunity to see what the sun’s surface looks like during the day. Tours start from 11am and cost $8 per adult and $6 per child. For more information visit www. sydneyobservatory.com.au.

Lexus shows off: New IS Line unveiled in United States

Toyota Australia is cementing its position as Australia’s leading car manufacturer.

Leading the way: Toyota cements its position oyota Australia has started exporting its new locally built four-cylinder engines to Thailand and Malaysia, cementing its position as Australia’s leading car manufacturer. Th is is the fi rst time Toyota Australia has sold standalone engines to the popular Asian countries. Approximately 18,000 engines are expected to be exported in 2013, while more than 90,000 engines will be fitted to Toyota Australia’s locally built Camry and Camry Hybrid sedans for domestic and export markets.

T

Lexus has revealed a new line-up at the North American International Autoshow.

Toyota Australia’s Executive Director of Manufacturing and Purchasing, Chris Harrod, said it was a proud day for the company and all those involved in expanding the market. “Our employees have worked incredibly hard to secure the investment for the new engine plant and ensure that we are producing the best quality engines,” he said. “The fact that we were able to secure new export markets in Thailand and Malaysia is testament to the quality of our work and the positive reputation Toyota Australia has amongst our affi liates.”

exus has unveiled its all-new IS Line at the North American International Autoshow in Detroit, United States of America. The unveiling coincides with confi rmation that Lexus Australia will offer an all-new, highly efficient hybrid drivetrain in the new IS Line alongside 2.5 and 3.5-litre all-alloy quad-cam V6 engines. Lexus IS Chief Engineer, Junichi Furuyama, said that achieving driving enjoyment for Lexus enthusiasts was central to the development of new IS Line. “We adopted an entirely different

L

approach to the development of the new IS,” he said. “Rather than developing each individual aspect in the hope that they would combine to offer an engaging driving experience, we fi rst established the pleasurable driving experience owners desire as our major premise, and then we developed the individual performance elements to support it. “Every aspect of the new IS has been engineered with a renewed focus on the sporting performance, agile handling, accurate response to driver input and highly communicative feedback.”

he Newtown Jets have been temporarily re-homed for training at Marrickville Oval and Redfern’s National Centre of Indigenous Excellence (NCIE) due to field reconstructions at Henson Park. On Tuesday, the Weekender was invited to the team’s fi rst session at the NCIE and spoke to head coach Greg Matterson about plans for pre-season training away from the Jets’ home turf. “We’re here on Tuesdays and Marrickville Oval on Thursdays,” Mr Matterson said. “The lack of a quality ground in the area has made us struggle a bit... We’ve had to bounce around and do beach training on weekends. We’ve been doing strength and fitness at the gym. “When we get back to Henson, we won’t have been there the whole off season, it will be a bit of a fresh start.” He said the next fortnight’s training would entail contact, shape, honing of defence and some game plan development before upcoming scrimmages. A Marrickville Council spokesman said Henson Park would be fully closed to any form of use until early March after its closure

on November 13. “At this stage it is likely that the field will be available at the beginning of March 2013 but Council will monitor the situation to determine if it is possible to allow access before this,” the spokesman said. “Th is will be dependant how well the grass

is growing and the weather conditions. The recent hot weather has had impacts, which we are monitoring.” On Tuesday and Wednesday, fi nal topdressing took place on Henson Park’s outer and centre fields. The next stage will be the sowing of grass seeds in February.
