Coasting : Issue 13 July 2010
3 www.coastingtoday.com.au COASTING FEATURE Go to www.coastingtoday.com.au for regular Central Coast news updates, and to see the current Coasting magazine, and past editions, in Real View. Editor: David Stewart Sales manager: Sharon Goodman Design: Nandina Vines Advertising: Phone 4979 5550 Cover images: • Comedian Felicity Ward. • Pilates instructor Michelle Wonnacott.

Felicity Ward admits that she spent 15 years diligently working towards a career as a serious actor. But now people simply laugh at her. And that's a good thing, too, considering that she's become an award-winning comedian. She meticulously planted the seeds for delicate grape vines. But, instead, whopping watermelons popped up. "It didn't feel as noble as acting, but that's how I fell into comedy," she told me of her arrival as a stand-up. The former Hardys Bay and Killcare girl has given the Central Coast a fair caning in some of her comedic routines. And Woy Woy, in particular, has been the punch line for many a gag. But deep down she loves the region, and that genuine affection comes through in our cover story. Our article on Mike McCarthy, too, looks at another surprising outcome. McCarthy is a singer-songwriter whose lyric writing has won praise from fans and critics alike. So what does he do for his latest album? He releases an instrumental CD, of course. What's more, he writes and records the 10 tracks in just 10 days, and names each track after a colour. What was he thinking? In this edition, we also unveil a new occasional series called "I was there..." in which we revisit events in the Central Coast's history with people who lived them. To kick off the series, former Woy Woy Rooster Jeremy Cusack takes us back to a golden era of Central Coast rugby league. Can you smell the Dencorub?
