New­ton’s law for a long life

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

ONE of Kyabram’s old­est res­i­dents, New­ton To­masini, re­cently cel­e­brated his 97th birth­day and he made some time to tell his seven-month-old great grand­daugh­ter So­phie Kennedy (both pic­tured above) about the won­der­ful life he has lived.

‘Newt’, as he is af­fec­tion­ately known to fam­ily and friends, is still very ac­tive de­spite clos­ing in on the cen­tury mile­stone. He still drives and en­joy a reg­u­lar game of bowls and golf.

And he still pulls his weight on the home front, mowing lawns and do­ing the lawn edg­ings reg­u­larly.

While liv­ing in Kyabram for more than 40 years with wife June, Newt was a dairy­farmer at Stan­hope for a good part of his life and be­fore re­tir­ing com­muted daily to Stan­hope to run his farm. And Newt’s recipe for a long life? ‘‘I do what I’m told... most of the time,’’ he replies with a chuckle.
