Many adult foot ailments, like other bodily ills, have their origins
in childhood and are present at birth. Periodic professional
attention and regular foot care can minimise these problems in
Neglecting foot health at an early age invites problems in other
parts of the body, such as the legs and back. Postural problems
and poor balance can be the result of poor foot posture and
hypermobility. There can also be undesirable personality e ects.
The youngster with troublesome feet may walk or run awkwardly
and poor general posture can cause many other health issues.

Watch for brush-tails
AUSTRALIA'S Foundation for National
Parks and Wildlife is encouraging
locals to be considerate to brush-tailed
possums this summer.
Chief executive Susanna Bradshaw said
possums are now taking up residence in lo-
cal backyards because they have access to
much smaller portions of land.
To make living with the furry friends
easier she recommends sprinkling blood
and bone around plants to stop the possums
going near them or spraying plants with a
She warns, however, against picking up
full-grown possums, who have sharp claws.
If you find a sick or injured animal call
the local wildlife carer.

WILLASTON'S Steve Renfrey never
thought he would one day become
a talented magician, but after years
of dedicated practise, he has finally
perfected the art of magic.
Steve decided to take a gamble 15 years ago
when he was dabbling in stand-up comedy
and he began to teach himself about the ins
and outs of magic.
Though at times it was frustrating, it was a
decision that most certainly paid off.
"I thought I wouldn't mind being a kid's
entertainer, so I bought an encyclopaedia of
magic and started with that," Steve said.
"I definitely thought it was a long way off,
"It takes a lot of practise and a lot of read-
After exposing his hidden talent, Steve be-
gan to travel around the country entertaining
His astounding magic tricks have ensured
he gets paid to do what he loves part time,
while also working as a print manager in
"It's my second job, unfortunately, it would
be good to do it full time," Steve said.
"But it was one of those things that sort of
grabs you once you start doing it.
"It can take you on a pretty good journey."
While Steve performs around the nation,
there is nothing more that he loves to do than
perform closer to home.
Currently, he is looking forward to perform-
ing at this Sunday's Wizardry and Wheels at
the National Motor Museum in Birdwood.
"I think what I always look forward to the
most is seeing the look on the kids' faces after
a show," Steve said.
