ORGANISERS of the Balaklava Eisteddfod pulled off a minor miracle last weekend, hosting a record number of entries including 2000 performers competing across 400 competitions over a seamless three-day event. While the Eisteddfod is more about musical numbers, some further figures to blow the mind include the 150-odd volunteers, not including caterers, who helped keep things running in six different By Les Pearson venues, including a 12-hour musical theatre marathon on Saturday. Eisteddfod committee president, Bronny Cottle, was extremely proud of the event. She said the huge amount of entrants was tough to manage but was happy all the same to see the interest in the annual Eisteddfod weekend. “It’s a really good problem to have,” she said. The organising committee also drew praise from revered adjudicator and accomplished accompanist, Malcolm Day, who was impressed with the flowing nature of the event. With the huge influx of visitors, local businesses copped a continual contingent of customers. Wendy’s Café and Cakes owner, Wendy Schulz, was thrilled with trading during the Eisteddfodd, particularly Friday. “It was the best trading day I’ve had in almost four years,” Wendy said. Mrs Schulz was prepared for the barrage, stocking up on food and milk before the event. She estimated the café used about 60 litres of milk over Friday and Saturday. Others traders in Balaklava also reported great sales, particularly on Friday, as busloads of hungry school students arrived to eat their way around town! n Continued page 6 n read the review, get all the results and pictures – pages 15 – 18 Clean up with Ph 8842 2566 & We’ll come to you A/hrs 8842 1616 CLARE VALLEY TOYOTA 380 Main North Road, CLARE echo Est 1978 AUGUST 2011 FREE in the Two Wells, Lewiston and nearby areas HOTLINE: 8842 2566 Inventor of the rough terrain forklift truck, Manitou offers today the most comprehensive range to meet all specific handling and personal lifting requirements!

LOWER LIGHT HOTEL PHONE: 8520 2003 2 www.plainsproducer.com.au Plains Producer, Wednesday August 10, 2011 NEWS v District Community helps fight crime Les Pearson reports: CRIME figures in the region dropped by between 15 and 30 per cent in a five-year period between 2005 and 2009, recently published data shows. The numbers were made available on a new, up-to-date, crime statistics website. Attorney-General, John Rau, the Office of Crime Statistics and Research (OCSAR) launched a revamped, easy to use Crime Mapper site last week. The new version of Crime Mapper includes statistics from 2005 to 2009, with older material still available on the previous Crime Mapper website. The new version allows locals to view statistics as per their local government area. Clare and Gilbert Valleys Coun- cil had the largest drop in criminal offences, plummeting almost 30 per cent to 2009. Crime in Wakefield Regional Council also fell about 20 per cent in the same period, while Mallala District Council recorded a drop of just over 16 per cent. Yorke and Mid North Local Service Area (LSA) Superintendent, Peter Anderson, said Police Commissioner, Mal Hyde, has pushed for an extended time to reduce localised crime. “The police commissioner, has for some years now, been focussed on driving down crime and through the performance review process he introduced shortly after his arrival,” Mr Anderson said. “There has been a strong focus on performance of the local service areas and that has translated into more proactive initiatives being introduced by LSA’s, depending on the nature on the crime, which might be unique to their area.” Mr Anderson said local communities have helped dramatically reducing crime in their areas in recent years. “In a nutshell, it means police have been very focussed on solving crime, preventing crime and working with the community in different forums with different initiatives,” he said. “Those things have come together, resulting in a steady drop in crime, which is very pleasing for everyone.” Rain a blessing after warm spell (AVA) Pet Dental Health Month. “One major cause of dental health problems is the damage to dogs’ teeth caused by bones,” says Dr Christine Hawke from the AVA’s dental health special interest group. “Common oral problems caused by bones can include broken teeth, and injuries to the BALAKLAVA gums and tongue They can also cause constipation, blockages and food poisoning,” she said Common signs of dental problems that owners should keep an eye out for include bad breath, inflamed gums, and teeth that are stained with tartar.

CORNED SILVERSIDE 4.99 kg P 8862 1571 F 8862 2096 Plains Producer, Wednesday August 10, 2011 FARMERS endured almost springlike weather for the start of the month, before a more than welcome return to order over the past week as widespread rain fell around the region. The warm weather even crept into early August before a wintry weekend put cops back on track. Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster, Darren Ray, said the weather has been somewhat unseasonal. “The temperatures in the first few days of August this year were unusually warm for this time of the year, with daytime temperatures as much as nine degrees above average,” he said. “For most locations across the Mid North, and South Australia more generally, temperatures were record highest for the first 2 weeks of August.” Roseworthy reached 26.8 degrees on August 3, while Snowtown (26.1) and Clare (24.4) also reached unseasonal highs. On the near horizon, Mr Ray said it was likely more rain is not far away. “The second week of August will see cooler conditions to start with, and on and off shower activity, before conditions warm up over the coming weekend, ahead of another cold front and more rain early next week,” he said. Most of the region has received a solid drenching over the past week. Since the start of August, rainfall totals across the Mid North have generally been between 20 and 30mm, with a heavy 36.6mm being recorded at Manoora. However, while things appear on track in the paddock, rainfall is slightly down on the yearly average. “Rainfall for the growing season so far for many but not all locations, has been 30 to 50mm below average for this time of the year across the Mid North,” Mr Ray said. “This is because Indian Ocean waters near north-western Australia have cooled in recent months, following the end in March of the La Nina event that was behind much of the wet conditions through spring and summer in 2010 and early 2011. “The cooler Indian Ocean conditions are likely to continue into spring, meaning that drier than average conditions are more likely to continue through that period, with slightly warmer than average temperatures likely into spring.” FROM THE GAUGE Rainfall totals in mm to 9am on August 8: Manoora 36.6 Sevenhill 32.4 Saddleworth 31.0 Watervale 27.7 Mallala 27.6 Riverton 21.0 Tarlee 20.6 Roseworthy 20.0 Brinkworth 16.0 Stockport 15.2 Blyth 15.0 Snowtown 13.6 Two Wells 27.2 Auburn 27.0 Clare 27.0 Pt Wakefield 26.4 Rhynie 25.8 Hoyleton 23.8 Balaklava 22.1 Better Quality, Choice & Price $ 13 Wallace Street Balaklava SA, 5461 culture of not providing police with information as much as they do now.” Modernised policing techniques and equipment has also helped stem the flow of crime. “Steadily we’ve been able to hone our community initiatives and likewise, our investigational abilities,” Mr Anderson said. “Every single day, we have a technical meeting in the morning to look at what crime has been committed in the past 24 hours and addressing all of those crimes to the best extent possible.” The new Crime Mapper website can be found via - www..ocsar.sa.gov. au/maps. OCSAR is part of the AttorneyGeneral’s Department and is responsible for both monitoring statistics and researching crime and criminal justice issues. n CROPS BACK ON TRACK: Lou brushes up on vet’s dental advice BALAKLAVA’S Katie Urwin is following advice from Australia’s veterinary surgeons as she prepares to clean the teeth of her best pal, Lou. Vets are encouraging dog owners to cut bones from their pets’ diets to help improve their dental health as part of the Australian Veterinary Association’s Such joint initiatives include dry zones, implemented in a number of rural towns around the state. “That certainly is one of the initiatives which has helped in reducing street crime,” Mr Anderson said. “People feel more comfortable getting out in those areas now. “There are many examples reduction behavioural offences dropped with the introduction of dry zones.” Mr Anderson explained police have become more involved with the communities in their LSA, nurturing a healthy relationship between the public and the officers. “Through that community interaction and education, people are far more willing to come forward now and provide information because they know it does help and they can see the results,” he said. “In years gone by, there was STRAWBERRIES 2.99 SHORT CUT BACON $ PUNNET 9.99 kg $ MIGHTY SOFT ROUNDS & SPLITS CRUMPETS 1.39 $ Specials available - Wednesday August 10 to Saturday August 14, 2011 or while stocks last www.plainsproducer.com.au 3 4 www.plainsproducer.com.au Plains Producer, Wednesday August 10, 2011 LIFESTYLE v Your Page Our own White House president Star of the North we circulate in: Auburn, Balaklava, Blyth, Brinkworth, Bute, Clare, Dublin, Gawler, Hamley Bridge, Kapunda, Lochiel, Lower Light, Mallala, Manoora, Owen, Pt.

Hamley Bridge Local identities Newton and Sue Lines have joined the Mid North masses who have been travelling abroad. The Hamley Bridge Football Club president and his committee member wife, had a great time touring the USA, catching up with two exchange students they had hosted some years ago. One student, Erik, was getting married, and the other one, Bobby, now works for the Obama administration, so Newton and Sue managed to have a trip to the Whitehouse. Whilst there, the Hamley president and his “secretary” had the chance to briefly meet the “other” President, Barack Obama. It obviously pays to know people in high places! Upon the Lines’ return, the (Hamley) president was asked by the supporters ‘Did you promote the Hamley Bridge Football Club and wear your club shirt?’ The supporters were shocked to hear a very definite reply in the negative, but Newton quickly explained that having the words “Hamley Bridge Bombers” emblazoned across his chest may have tested the American’s security sensitivity. I agree, but I’m sure Newton could’ve held his own against tackles from the Whitehouse security!

Now the Black Eyed Peas have done their version, having ‘the ti-iime of their life’.

Mrs Schulz was prepared for the barrage, stocking up on food and milk before the event hit town. She estimated the café used about 60 litres of milk over Friday and Saturday. “It was busy all week and also on Saturday but it’s quietened down today (Monday),” Mrs Schulz said. “It’s actually nice to have some space and time to breathe again.” Mrs Cottle reported a large increase of interest in the speech and drama section, where competitors performed duologues, triologues and prose reading. “It was really much larger than it has been,” she said. Picking a highlight from the weekend was particularly tough for Mrs Cottle, although the performance by Bruce “Dizzy” Raymond’s concert band was “extraor- dinary”. “Everything you see just wows you,” she said. Mrs Cottle believed it was important to maintain the solid number of local entries. “It’s not always about winning,” she said. “Locals need to be part of it, not only to compete, but it also gives them an opportunity to see some of the best of the best and learn from them. “We want to keep the local content as high as we can.” Entrants are not only judged by adjudicators, experts in their respective fields, they are also given guidance and feedback on their performance, helping them achieve at their best. “Adjudicators not only wrote up a sheet of feedback for them, but many were also doing mini-masterclasses,” Mrs Cottle said. “It helps the performers understand the complexities of how music is made.” Mrs Cottle said the adjudicators at the Eisteddfod are unique to the event in how they provide lessons to the entrants and reinforce lessons from teachers. “It’s brilliant for the teachers and brilliant for the performers,” she said. Another highlight over the weekend was the delicious food served by the ladies of the Catholic Church to volunteers and organisers who jostle over the many delights. Trish Langdon’s cake also was most sought after by one particular MC. “It was real comfort food,” Mrs Cottle laughed. The event committee, comprising of Mrs Cottle, vice president Di Spence, promotions manager Glenys Cocks, convenors coordinator Jo May, Sally Cowan, Jeanette Nuemann and administrator, Trish Goodgame, has worked tirelessly for many months to ensure a smooth show. “There were no hiccups and everything went beautifully to plan,” Mrs Cottle said. “It was almost like a zip, everything just connected up.” BUSINESS DIRECTORY CATERING Tom’s Catering Service Whether you choose a 5 course gourmet dinner or delicious finger food Tom caters for all.

In return, the Lions will offer some financial support for the soon-to-be-built Balaklava skate park. The Lions need help to collect debris – sticks and stones – from grassed areas which will be mowed to beautify the parklands. The club has a new ride-on mower, destined to be used as a fund-raiser, with its “mowtesting” now taking place. Balaklalva Lions club president, Warren Durdin, said the “emu parade” – a scouting term for cleaning an area – would be a great help. The clean up is set for this Sunday, August 14, from 8am to noon. Helpers need to wear Call for town’s youth at working bee gloves, sensible shoes and clothing and bring a rake or shovel. Meet opposite the hospital. “We don’t want to damage the mower blades, so collecting fallen tree branches and stones would be a big help,” he said. “The club has been approached by Balaklava Area Committee to assist with funding for the skate park ... so we thought, ‘why not get the people who will use it to help us?’” Community donated cash and “in-kind” support of $15,000 is required to help fund the $100,000 park, which has been financed by a State government grant of $50,000 and Wakefield Regional Council budgeted funding of $35,000. At present about $6,000 has been gathered as the community share for the park, which will be built in an area of parklands north of the swimming pool. “It would be great to see local kids and their parents get behind the club, which in turn will help them to enjoy their skate park,” said Warren, who urged helpers to attend on Sunday. Balaklava Area Committee chairman, Terry Williams, said the Lions Club proposal was an excellent way to bring the local Balaklava community together. “I hope people realise they sometimes need to personally chip in to help achieve something,” he said. “The Lions do many great things for their communities – throughout Australia and the world – so it would great for the community to return the favours on Sunday.” A skate park committee also needs members willing to take an active support role. Contact Terry on 8862 1977 during business hours. Donations towards the Area Committe’s skate park fund will also be accepted at the working bee. • Balaklava Area Committee also will be asking for community support as it progresses the proposed Shamus Liptrot Memorial Cycling trail. Work is continuing on this project, with contaminated soil testing – a costly component of the trail’s development – being arranged along the rail corridor from Balaklava to Halbury. Some public donations for associated costs, as well as general assistance, will be requested at an appropriate time. SHEARING AND WOOD CHOPPING CANCELLED: Copping it sweet in a new area Balaklava Show gets two days of horse action By Sally Crowther THIS Saturday, August 18, will mark the last day two local police officers spend patrolling local roads and nabbing villains. Port Wakefield Brevet Sergeant, Charmaine Barlow, 30, is transferring to Hallett, while Hamley Bridge Brevet sergeant, Eddie Dilena, 38, is moving to Burra. But don’t be alarmed about their departure. We are assured replacement officers will soon be appointed. The decision to transfer was not easy, but the couple, who recently became engaged, believe it will be beneficial. “I’ll be able to spend more time with my bride to be,” said Eddie. “Also, I have worked at Hamley Bridge for almost five years, so it will be a fresh change.” The move will see the officers working in different clusters, which means their rosters will be similar. “Currently our rosters rarely match, but with the move we will be working in different clusters allowing us to have annual leave together,” Charmaine said. With a new town to patrol and new relationships to form, both officers are looking forward to the next challenge in their career. “After five years you tend to deal with the same people, so I’m looking forward to meeting new people – and arresting them,” said Eddie, with a smile. While they are both excited for the change and challenges ahead, both say they will miss the communities they worked within. “The communities of both Balaklava and Port n Thanks and praise for communities as two local police officers depart Wakefield have been nothing but supportive since my transition to the country in 2009,” Charmaine said. Even though Charmaine is transferring from the region, her love of local sport will still bring her back once a fortnight to play basketball in Balaklava. “I will miss the nettie girls at both Hummocks and Balaklava. Once a Pecker, always a Pecker!” Charmaine said. While both officers extend thanks to fellow colleagues and the communities in which they worked, they also praised the local emergency services in the Wakefield region. “We can get jobs that will last over 12 hours and at times they can be unpleasant by nature, but the professionalism displayed by the CFS and SAAS is outstanding,” Charmaine said. Our local community will be losing two fine police officers, however Charmaine and Eddie will always hold a special bond with the towns they served. “Hamley is a great community, and I look forward to reading about the town’s progress in the Plains Producer,” Eddie said. It’s nearly that time of year again when the horses come out on show, the children excitedly pick their show bags, the women cook up a storm and the scent of fairy floss is in the air – it’s the Balaklava show. On Saturday and Sunday September 24 and 25, Balaklava show again will be held at Ralli Park. One of the organisers and a real show stalwart, Nollene Grigg, said there will be plenty of entertainment. “For the first time in years we have show-jumping which will be held on the Sunday,” Nollene said. While show-jumping is just one attraction, along with Wobbles the Clown and Horizon clown group, there are a few less favourites from last year. “Due to a Wudinna shearing competition being held on the same weekend, we have decided to drop the shearing competition at the show,” Nollene said. The log chopping will also be absent due to the increased expense in comparison to last year. Member for Goyder, Steven Griffiths, will officially open the event on the Saturday. With entertainment for any age, the 2011 Balaklava show is a must-do. The Plains Producer will keep you updated with any future show highlights as the event nears.

Council was responsible for any capital works expenditure, while the committee maintained the building and conducted the library. With the amalgamation of Port Gawler, Grace and Dublin Councils to become the District Council of Mallala (Light), the Council and committee called a meeting of subscribers in April 1935 – ownership of the Institute was again vested in a body of Trustees. In the 1950-60s, there were several unsuccessful attempts to get Council to take over the Institute. At a subscribers’ meeting in 1972, it was resolved that the Institute change from a trusteeship to an incorporated body. In 1983 the State Libraries Institutes Association was dissolved by state government – this saw Mallala by Norma Schopp Ownership was vested in a Trusteeship, the Trustees being Messrs. James Ferguson, Samuel Churches, John Forbes, Thomas Edward Fisher, Henry Jarmyn and Alfred Vawser. In 1890, this group asked the District Council to take over management of the Institute but this was rejected by a vote of the ratepayers. The trustees persisted until 1898 when they again approached council, which then assumed ownership in January 1899, paying off the mortgage. A committee of five took over management and, if the Institute made a profit for the year, it was paid to council; some years Institute removed from the Schedule of the Libraries Act, thus dissolved. At a subscribers’ meeting in 1983, “the property and buildings (library excepted) were transferred to the District Council...the building belongs to the Council...management of finance and buildings etc. remains the same...all must be approved by Council...members to be elected annually.” This was still the situation when the Institute’s centenary was celebrated in 1985. Alterations and extensions have been made but it remains a valuable community asset.

Their version drags for 10 minutes, one sixth of an hour worth of Axl Rose singing like a witch being strangled. Guns have also been the victim, Sheryl Crow vandalising “Sweet Child O’ Mine”.

I hated Joni Mitchell’s 1970 original and then along come the Crows in 2002 and re-released the nightmare. Not only that, Counting Crows also credit Vanessa Carlton as one of the artists featured – her only contribution is a couple of moans and groans in the background, with an “mmm, bop bop bop” thrown in occasionally.

I’m not a negative sort of music fan. Out of a lot of tragedy, there tends to be beautiful music made as a result, probably a topic for another week. For example, the plane crash which killed Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper (RIP all of them) resulted in one of the greatest and overplayed hits of all-time, Don McLean’s “American Pie”. I mention American Pie because the cover of the song by Madonna, released in March 2000, was in my mind, an utter disaster. It pained me to listen to, it still does, and even if the album cover was the only bit of paper in a public toilet cubical, I would rather walk bow-legged to Coles.

Heritage Highlights When the initial settlement of South Australia was being planned in England, the South Australian Literary and Scientific Association was established in London. A shipment of books saw the beginning of public libraries or reading rooms, but they needed to be housed. With the assistance of government grants, most district councils erected a building which provided a venue for public functions and housed the library – this was commonly known as “the Institute.” The District Council of Grace erected a building on Owen Road in 1878. This building was useful but not always convenient, so plans were drawn up to build something better. Using the government subsidy and financial support from local residents, the foundation stone for the new Mallala Institute was laid on March 12, 1885.

Two Wells Craft Shop managers Judi Frost, Mollie Frost and Di Meaney are excited the old courthouse will get a new lease of life after much-need funding was secured. Craft shop upgrade starts soon The old Two Wells Courthouse is set to get a long-awaited interior upgrade. Through the Department of Environment and Natural Resource’s State Heritage Unit, the Two Wells Regional Action Team (TWRAT) has secured a dollar-fordollar grant worth $10,000. Built in 1876 the courthouse is of great significance to the local community and is currently being used as an outlet for local art and craft, known as the Craft Shop. Craft Shop manager Judi Frost says the funding application was lodged on behalf of the shop by TWRAT and will mean the interior can be restored to its former glory. The restoration is due to begin on Monday, September 19 and the shop will be closed for a month. Consignees are asked to arrange to remove their craft items from the building before September 16. To help clear stock, a sale with 10 per cent off runs from September 1-16, excluding plants and produce. “It’s virtually the whole of the interior that will be repaired,” she said.“It will just be brand new inside (and) it’s very exciting.” In keeping with a building of such stature, Mrs Frost says the restoration will follow heritage guidelines, as it is Heritage listed. “I’m just so passionate about this building,” she said. “I love it (and) eventually we would like to have the outside done too but that’s more money we don’t have.” The restoration project will repair the ceiling in the lobby and rear room, render all interior walls where they are fractured, repair the window frames and panes where they are cracked, and paint all the internal walls and woodwork. Mrs Frost said it was important to have the courthouse upgraded to maintain the main street’s proud landscape and help the building to fit in. In recent years TWRAT and the Craft Two Wells library renovations Two Wells Public Library will be closed from September 6 to October 5 for significant renovations and structural works to the Institute building. The library will operate on a reduced scale from the old Two Wells Council Chambers (next to the library) from September 6. Opening hours have changed. Limited public internet access will be available during the above times. The Mallala and Windsor branches will continue to operate as normal, with Two Wells Library set to re-open by October 6. Library loans during this time will run on an extended time-frame, however resources will be limited. Please contact the library on 8520 2100 for further information. Shop have funded other restoration projects for the building, including a new electrical system throughout, new guttering and downpipes, and a new roof. While the District Council of Mallala (DCM) has supported TWRAT in smaller projects through its Community Partnerships Program, Mrs Frost says the council was not interested in taking on responsibility for the building as they knew it would cost a lot of money to return it to its former glory. Fellow Craft Shop manager Di Meaney has a family connection to the building and is looking forward to seeing it revitalised. “I think it’s just fabulous it’s being restored,” she said. “My Dad was a justice of the peace here and he also used to be the local coroner. He used to sit on all the local court cases and I can remember when I had to come and give evidence here once.” echo e e Fr JULY 2011 Call for help to upgrade historic wells Community members are encouraged to come and help out at the Two Wells Regional Action Team (TWRAT) working bee at the historic wells on Sunday, August 14, from 10am to 4pm at Two Wells. TWRAT president, Eddie Stubing, said TWRAT had volunteered its services to District Council of Mallala to repair and upgrade the historic site. “We want to lend a hand to restore the site, which has played such a big part in the history of this area,” Eddie said. Work will be done on the entrance, rotunda, paring, signage, seating and wells, along with the garden. “There’s lots to be done, but many hands make light work, so we’re keen to get as many people along as possible,” Eddie said. The Hickinbotham Group and Council will also be in attendance to lend a hand, along with putting on a free sausage sizzle for volunteers.

Lynette Bassani, Lower Light By Les Pearson IN almost identical fashion to The Police’s hit song, Roxanne, the wind turbines at the Snowtown Wind Farm also don’t need to put the red light on any more. The red flashing lights on top of the turbines are about to be turned off progressively throughout this month and into September. TrustPower Australia business development manager, Rodney Ahern, said the lights had been required under the wind farm’s original development approval, to satisfy the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) requirements prevailing at that time. “Those requirements have now changed with the Snowtown wind farm towers now only required to be marked on aeronautical navigation charts as potential hazards,” Mr Ahern said. “We have worked through a process with the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) that now enables us to turn off the lights. “We are now confident that all appropriate safety measures are now in place to ensure aircraft pilots are adequately warned of the presence of the turbines.” Mr Ahern said the lights were positioned on the turbine nascelles of about one in three of the 47 turbines in the wind farm. The Stage One lights needed to be turned off to be consistent with the planned 102-turbine second stage of the Snowtown wind farm, which will not have any aviation hazard lighting installed. “We wanted to make sure the community knew they were being deliberately turned off – not because they were faulty and not working,” Mr Ahern said. “It’s a process that we will now see happening at wind farms in other areas as well.” The 47 turbines, which were completed in November 2008, comprise the 98.7MW Stage One of the $800 million Snowtown Wind Farm. Mr Ahern said the company is looking to continue to progress negotiations with preferred turbine suppliers in relation to the development of Stage Two of the Snowtown Wind Farm. This project is likely to generate between 215MW and 270MW, depending on final turbine selection.

Pet Care With Balaklava Veterinary Service. Ph 8862 2088 Feeling the doggie blues Pets are commonly seen as a culpable source of allergens, and a majority of allergy sufferers simply do not entertain the possibility of owning dogs. The good news for the one in four Australians suffering allergies is that there are a number of solutions available allowing them to live comfortably with canine companions. “Allergic reactions to dogs are caused by certain proteins found in dogs’ hair follicles and dander,” explained Veterinary Adviser Dr Peter Higgins. “This means that the production of dog allergens, and their propensity for being spread, varies quite a lot between breeds.” For these reasons, some breeds prove much more tolerable to allergy sufferers. Dr Higgins is quick to point out that no canine is completely non-allergenic. However, there are some breeds that are classified as hypoallergenic. Dogs such as poodles, schnauzers, bichon frise, chinese crested dogs, irish water spaniels, australian silky terriers, italian greyhounds, maltese, yorkshire terriers, and skye terriers are preferential pets for allergy sufferers. For many allergy sufferers, pets are an integral part of life, and total avoidance of dogs is neither a desirable nor a realistic option. By implementing basic allergy management strategies, taking time to research and select an agreeable breed, and providing proper care and training, all owners can minimise their sensitivities to triggering allergens. n SOME of the Meals on Wheels service award recipients.

LEFT: HARD at work are (from left) Tash Truscott, Neville Johnson, Aidyn Truscott, Charlie Jacki and Jasmine Robinson planting at the Blyth community Tree Planting Day. Blyth team has 1500 reasons to be happy! THE brave plainsmen took to their forks and attended the annual Blyth Community Tree Planting day last Sunday. About 40 children and adults drew on their gloves and put in an afternoon of hard yakka to plant about 1500 trees along the ex-railway corridor north and south of Blyth. Heavy showers had the planters heading to the makeshift shelters – but Janet Zweck reports “a lovely afternoon tea and birthday cake” was enjoyed mid afternoon on site Miners target more YP copper and gold PRECIOUS metal and uranium exploration company, Marmota Energy Limited, announced it has identified drill targets over its West Melton copper-gold project on Yorke Peninsula, about 25 kilometres north west of Port Wakefield. Marmota Energy managing director, Dom Calandro, announced the launch of the exploration program in June. The drill targets were spotted during a high-resolution airborne geophysical survey. This involved flying a plane, similar to a crop-duster, along certain lines above the land, which detects various changes in the earth’s magnetic field. These readings give a general indication of the possibility of valuable commodities under the ground. The potential strike length of the most significant anomaly is about 10 kilometres. “The large scale targets identified from the data are in a geological setting that is similar to that at the Rex Minerals Hillside Project.” He said the company planned to follow up the promising exploration results with the acquisition of infill high resolution ground gravity, magnetic and soil surveys over selected target areas. Monax Mining Limited, which has a 50 per cent share with Marmota in the Melton project, a separate deposit from the West Melton project, announced it has also purchased a tenement and began drilling near Webling Bay, on the northern Yorke Peninsula. The company plans to mine copper in the area. This new tenement is on top of the company’s shared interest in the Melton project, and another fully-owned tenement near Ardrossan, south of the Hillside project. • MEANTIME, the board of Core Exploration Ltd also announced the company’s first drilling program since listing on the ASX earlier this year, has begun on its prospective Yorke Peninsula project, just west of Rex Minerals’ Hillside project. Plains Producer, Wednesday August 10, 2011 Core’s managing director, Stephen Biggins, said the first air-core drill program had been doubled in size to 4000 metres as a result of the company’s increasing confidence in the Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) potential of the project. Mr Biggins said earlier geophysical surveys have defined a large-scale set of magnetic and gravity drill targets identified within the 12-kilometre long, two to four kilometre wide, Palace Structural Zone. “This geophysical scenario is a strong indicator of magnetite/ hematite iron oxide alteration systems and potentially IOCG style mineralisation,” he said. The large-scale gravity and magnetic drill targets are hosted in a similar geological setting to Rex Minerals’ nearby Hillside project. The drilling is expected to take about three weeks, with the assay results to be available a further six to eight weeks after drilling concludes. to celebrate co-ordinator Ian Roberts’ birthday. With no way out after a cuppa and cake, the planters continued until all trees were in the ground – with all delighted when the end of the row was met. Ian thanked the three Clare Lions club members and locals who braved the elements thrown at them during the afternoon and hoped they enjoyed the day of digging and fellowship, as well as the evening barbecue Grants open for solar schools Schools in the region have the opportunity to improve energy efficiency and save water thanks to an Australian government $25 million National Solar Schools Program. Federal Member for Wakefield, Nick Champion, said the program provides local schools the opportunity to become more sustainable as well as have students learn about energy use and the renewable energy sector first hand. Schools can now apply for funding with the 2011-12 application round which opened on August 1. Grants of up to $50,000 are awarded, with 11 schools already receiving funding.

The top spots on SA roads for merging collisions in 2010 are: • Main North road – Pooraka, North Adelaide, Regency Park, Elizabeth, Elizabeth East, Adelaide, • Salisbury Plain and Prospect. • South road – O’Halloran Hill, Regency Park, Adelaide, Seaford, Croydon, Hindmarsh and • Port road – Hindmarsh and Port Adelaide areas SGIC Head of Research, Robert McDonald, said merging collisions on SA roads resulted in nearly a million dollars in claim costs each year. “Main North road had the most merging collisions in the state, but South road had the biggest increase with nearly five times more merging collisions in 2010.” Mr McDonald said as well as the increase in merging collision claims, recent research saw over 50 per cent of SA respondents listing merging incorrectly as their top frustration on the road. Mr McDonald said the claims data and the driver research showed drivers needed to refresh their road rules knowledge and take more caution when merging. “The rules when merging are straightforward — when two lines of traffic become one and there are no marked lines, a driver must give way to any vehicle that is ahead of their own. And if a vehicle wants to move from one marked lane of traffic into another, they must give way to the lane of traffic they are moving into. “Being courteous and allowing other vehicles to move smoothly into lanes can help everyone reduce risk of a collision,” Mr McDonald said. NRMA Insurance offers the following tips to drivers: • Merge at a similar speed to the traffic you are merging with – this will make merging easier and assist with traffic flow. • Don’t change lanes abruptly, move smoothly into lanes – this can help to reduce the risk of a collision. • Maintain a safe distance from the car in front of you to avoid clipping the car when merging. • Always use your indicators when merging or changing lanes so other drivers are aware of where you are going. The roundabout from hell! Talk about merging lanes? How would some Balaklava drivers handle this roundabout? It’s in Swindon, in Wiltshire, England and was built in the early 1970s. Locals apparently are “proficient” when using it. Traffic flow around the smaller, inner roundabout is counterclockwise and traffic flows in the usual clockwise manner around the five mini-roundabouts and the outer loop.

Pedestrian protection was a key consideration in the detailed design of all elements of the front-end, particularly in the design of the bumper and bonnet, the front structure, and the layout of the engine compartment. A notable feature introduced specifically to improve pedestrian protection is a new dual motor windscreen wiper system, which allows the main elements of the motors and wiper mechanism to be moved to a safer position away from the centre of the vehicle. The body structure also incorporates a new ‘soft’ cowl design to reduce the effect of impacts at the base of the windscreen.

As the day progressed the bands got bigger and better and the audiences and adjudicator were amazed at the quality and variety of performances from a Henry Mancini medley to an absolute treat champion band Trinity College Senior Band conducted by Bruce “Dizzy” Raymond previous ASO and Adelaide Carols By Candlelight. Pulteney Grammar’s harp player had a crowd gathered at the footpath in the late afternoon sun as hundreds of students gathered as he played while waiting for one of the fourteen coaches (two double deckers) which filled our town. The Choral Section began with the beautiful young voices of the junior choirs and concluded on an astounding high from the seasoned and very popular “Bal Canto”. Watching adjudicator Deb Munro, national and international choral director with choirs was an enjoyable experience for both performers and audience. The variety of instruments at instrumental ensembles was great to see. From keyboards, guitar, flute to string ensembles. The winning junior group was Encounter Bay Lutheran School first time eisteddfod entrants who left home at 6:30am. The Junior Vocal Ensemble winners, Balaklava Primary School, were described by the adjudicator Peter Webb “as if connected with a thread of string”. It was good to see the all boy group from Rostrevor who sang “Bohemian Rhapsody”. Allegro are now champions in years 2008, 2009, 2010 and now 2011. Wow they are good! The adjudicator’s prayer is “please send me an obvious winner”. Rock Bands: There were great rock bands eg. Rostrevor but another band played brilliantly also just using acoustic guitars creating rock versions of Eminem songs. The winner was Trinity. Junior winner was the Balaklava Primary Girl Band. Popular adjudicator Mark Dean not only gave helpful ideas but demonstrated them on the various rock band instruments ADELAIDE Plains Male Voice Choir Vocal Scholarship winner, Chloe Bremner, is presented with her award by choir president, Craig Woodward at the finale concert in the Town Hall on Sunday.

Marco Callisto had his first appearance here as a little boy sleeping on the front seat while his big sisters played. Today he was an equal three way first place winner. Adjudicator Dr Helen Payne could not split the group in Intermediate Piano. His older sister, Stephanie, was outstanding as Senior winner and overall champion. The open section participants, including locals Ben Nichols and Joseph Ingram tackled very demanding pieces which Dr Payne said were well executed. The vocalsection duet was won by Chloe Bremner and Leah Harford for the fourth time. Adjudicator Ian Vayne said that “it was delightful to see confidence” amongst the Sub Juniors and the musicality and preparation of these young children was a surprise. Samuel Michael took out first prize in this section and Tory Lane was an Honourable mention. Lacee McPharlin won second in the Junior Vocal Solo.

SPEECH and DRAMA David Fyfe, the announcer at Speech and Drama which has doubled in two years, was just as entertaining as the performers as he quoted from famous literary works during his introductions. Not only is Trish Goodgame the extraordinary talent behind Eisteddfod administration, she won first place in the Prose Reading. The championship Speech and Drama trophy has now been won three times by Kelly Bickle and Joseph Ingram. INSTRUMENTAL A large crowd were treated to some excellent and creative performances in each of the instrumental sections, adjudicated by Ian Russell. The audience just about needed earplugs for the drum solos, and if you’d thought about having a short nap, then you were mistaken! Ian Russell commented, as he did last time he adjudicated, that practice makes perfect, no matter what age you are. A method he uses for his students is to roll 2 dice and add the two numbers together. Whatever it adds up to, is how many times in a row you must practice the particular tricky part and get it right, or you start again! This was greeted by groans and giggles from the audience! A “one off” award – the Lyndall n MORE PICTURES, PAGES 16 & 17. ALL THE RESULTS, PAGE 18 Plains Producer, Wednesday August 10, 2011 Hendrickson Award – went to each winner in Instrumental Solo divisions (see results). Lyndall Hendrickson, AM, was born in Balaklava in 1917, and has made a contribution to Australian and international culture in arts and education. She began as a violin prodigy and overcame the effects of polio by exercising the power of her mind to regain movement in her left side. Lyndall, 94, is very passionate about encouraging music in every shape and form, including in the Balaklava Eisteddfod Instrumental Section. She is presently writing her thesis on music as a form of communication for people with autism. Musical Theatre This was our biggest section this year, with the last group of participants finishing at 8:30pm. The adjudicator, Ruth Bormann gave extensive feedback and spoke about individual winners in each section. She reminded participants to “never push your voices, find your boundaries and don’t push past them”. She also suggested participants use accompanists rather than recordings as it “gives you the liberty to change things”. In the Open Musical Theatre Solo section the winner was Sarah Wildy, who sang ‘What ever happened to my Part?’ “She blew me away”, Ruth said. Upon presenting Sarah with the Musical Theatre Solo Champion’s trophy Ruth spoke of Sarah being “a great package” with her beautiful voice and exciting acting talent. She also highly praised local girls, Kellie Bickle and Heather Crawford who came second and third respectively. Kellie presented “a professional theatrical piece” and had “a beautiful voice and presence”. Heather “took the stage” with an extremely difficult song which was beautifully done. Ruth recommended that all three should go on and sing in productions. The adjudicator was also impressed with the quality of the entrants in the Sub Junior section. She said they sang in tune and chose appropriate songs. Jacob Maiolo won this section with a spirited rendition of ‘Let’s Go Fly a Kite’. A group of local performers prepared by Heidi Zerk; comprising Samuel Michael, Thomas Lane, Mikaela Tiller and Chloe Lamond took out first prize in the Junior Ensemble section with an energetic performance of ‘I’ll never grow up’. Samuel Michael as Peter Pan had a “lovely clear voice and the right amount of bravado”, Norma said. Local girls, Jessica and Sarah Heaslip, Lori Allen and Victoria Lane won second place with a humorous presentation of ‘Your Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile’. CONTEMPORARY VOCAL Mat Noble, adjudicator for Contemporary Vocal spoke of the importance of musical elements such as phrasing, range, breathing, intonation, how you build and interpret songs and of equal importance, your presentation – that is how you connect to the song and the audience. In the Sub Intermediate section he spoke of the maturity of depth and how impressed he was with the wonderful array of talent. The Open Section was won by Sarah Wildy, singing ‘True Colours’. Mat commented on the diverse range of performances in this section and how participants captured their style. He reminded participants to use the microphone to their advantage. Kate Walker (nee McDonald) a performer in previous years and earlier winner of the Adelaide Plains Male Voice Choir, took on the role as Vocal Ensembles adjudicator. www.plainsproducer.com.au 15 special feature v BALAKLAVA EISTEDDFOD 2011 adjudicator Dr Helen Payne (right) couldn’t separate three winners in the Intermediate piano solo (from left) Marco Callisto, Sarah Dinh, David Dinh (equal firsts), Clara Nguyen, Timothy Braslavskiy and Ruby Easthope-Swan (Hon. Mentions) Twice the fun Special treat from Kelly The friendly rivalry continues between Kelly Bickle and Joseph Ingram. Saturday’s competition saw Joseph win the Open section of the Drama or Recitation section of the Speech and Drama with his amusing presentation of The Newspaper Lady. Both Joseph and Kelly each have now won the Speech and Drama Championship Trophy (sponsored by Balaklava Lions) three times. The suggestion was made perhaps next year they should enter the duologue section, performing together. IT MIGHT have been one of the best peformances of the Eisteddfod ... but not part of the competition and with only a lucky few in the audience! Balaklava songbird and actress Kelly Bickle treated Eisteddfod organisers and supporters with her song “As If We Never Said Goodbye” from “Sunset Boulevard” at the annual wind down get-together in the Balco boardroom on Sunday evening. Kelly, seen here with Joseph Ingram after performing in the Open Musical Theatre section of the Eisteddfod, had just her trusty CD player as backing music. She was simply sensational, bringing a tear to some in the room. Bravo Kelly! And Eisteddfod organiser, Trish Goodgame, who won prose reading in the Speech and Drama section, entertained the group with delightful observations on the game of golf.

When you are a volunteer and with six venues operating concurrently it is impossible to get to everything so this is a way for a snapshot of most venues. James Hancock was our very entertaining and accomplished MC for the day and we welcomed him back from Adelaide. The concert was opened by our well known member for Goyder, Steven Griffiths who has a first hand understanding of what we happens with the Eisteddfod, how it works, the complexities of it and the huge benefit Vocal Duet and Trio champions Chloe Bremner (left) and Leah Harford. it has on our community and on us as individuals as the arts is an expression of who we are and how we feel . The opening and closing performances of the Mid North Combined Festival of Music Choirs from Balaklava, Clare, Kapunda, Riverton Mallala and Owen was a delightful choral showcase of 80 young voices with some snappy choreography to entertain and at times move the audience. Patrick Power, renowed professional singer, was adjudicator of the Adelaide Plains Male Voice Choir Scholarship final. Winner was Chloe Bremner, who has been coming up from Adelaide since she was very small. She sang “Bus Ride” and “Spoonful of Sugar” from Mary Poppins in authentic costume. Eisteddfod Society, president, Bronny Cottle, thanked the committee, the convenors, about 150 volunteers, the 66 sponsors and especially the performers, teachers and accompanists who made Balaklava The Place To Be for music. n SEE SPONSORS THANKS, PAGE 29 Plains Producer, Wednesday August 10, 2011 special feature v BALAKLAVA EISTEDDFOD 2011 LEFT: Senior Rock Band, Balak High Back from left: Josh Harrison, Mitchell Hill, Jess Wickham, Imogen Coles, front: Sally Wilson and Braydon Foale-Jacka.

The night kicked off with Red Faces acts performed by the A1, A2 and A3 netball teams and the A grade and Reserves football teams. All were entertaining to say the least, but the Goldilocks rendition by the A3 netball team took out first prize, and runner-up was awarded to the A grade football team, who have some talented musicians, performing a couple of numbers while some other teammates happened to undress them selves! Other acts included more clothes coming off from the Reserves, with a clever comedy skit and the A2’s act was a Thank God You’re Here performance, which included the help of Hummocks Football Club president, Harry Taylor. The A1’s act involved dancing as silly as possible for five minutes while watching the wedding of Tegan Nottle (bride) and Samantha Nicholls (Groom)! The dance floor was packed out all night thanks to the band for the evening, ‘Georgia Germein and Sisters’, who played a few original songs along with many favourites. It was heard that Glenn Sharp especially liked the music, receiving a Georgia Germein CD for best dancer on the night! Best Dressed Female went to Tegan Nottle, her stone washed jeans teamed with a darker denim jacket and red lipstick took some back to the 80’s, winning her a $100 voucher for Travelscence Kadina. at HWE fundraiser n ABOVE: Alison Baum and Tracy Angel have a chat over a drink. n LEFT: The A1 netball team Red Faces act, played out by (from left) Sam Nicholls, Tegan Nottle, Bonnie Nicholls, Rochelle Smith and Beth Germein. Best dressed male went to David Oswald, he explained that he was unable to find denim shoes anywhere so he tore up denim and stickytaped it to his feet! His creativity earned him a $60 Sportspower Kadina voucher. A fantastic night with many in high spirits after a few good wins that day at netball and football. Thanks to everyone who helped make the night a success. It’s great to see a small club have so many volunteers to help pull off a night like this. – Beth Germein n LEFT INSET: The A grade footballers during the performance which won them runner-up prize. n BELOW: Georgia Germein and Sisters entertain the crowd with their music. n BEST Dressed, Tegan Nottle (second from left), with, from left: Erin Brundell, Beth Germein and Amy Nottle. 20 www.plainsproducer.com.au Plains Producer, Wednesday August 10, 2011 SPORT v Football APFL & NEFL Association Football Scores We’re Winners!

It was a big day for the Montgomery boys, with Brian kicking four goals. The drubbing completed a dismal day for the Bombers with all grades suffering a similar fate. Mallala had players returning from injury and a couple of players only having their second or so hit out after having returned from injury, and looked a good side on paper. The game began almost as a replica of the reserves clash. Mallala had goals to Brent Harris, Jason Earl, Daniel Feeley and David Pontt before Hamley got on the board through Ashley Natt. Then it was back to business for Mallala, with further goals to Brian Mont- gomery, Jason Earl and Daniel Feeley right on the quarter time siren. The seven-goal straight first quarter was a stark contrast to the ‘Pies slow start against United in round 16. Jason Earl was in great touch early as were Joel Montgomerie, Daniel Griffiths and David Pontt. Hamley’s Josh Moody and Craig Allen picked up touches. The Bombers’ chances nosedived with Justin Schahinger limping off and taking no further part in the game. Mallala continued in much the same vein in the second term, albeit with less accuracy. A heavy shower of rain didn’t help the skill levels. It was dark, wet, and miserable. Even more so for Hamley when Josh Moody limped off. Jason Earl was in superlative form. Jon Clarke, in defence, made life difficult for Bomber forwards. Joel Montgomerie was everywhere as usual. Hamley were left to rely on the efforts of Adam Pepe, Dylan Lockwood, Shane Catterall, Ashley Natt and Rhys Savage, and were getting enough of the ball, but Mallala’s pressure meant they couldn’t do too much with it. The Bombers played for pride as they went to half time 51 points in arrears. A slippery ball made skilful football difficult. Hamley were able to match Mallala better in the third term, with both teams scoring just the one goal each. Mallala’s Daniel Feeley, and Hamley’s Craig Allen were superb. Josh Moody had come ‘Pies early win against persistent Bombers LEWIS Helps, Mallala tries to wriggle out of Bomber Rhys Darwin’s grip in senior colts. RESERVES Mallala led all game, before finally defeating Hamley Bridge by 91 points. As the final margin suggests, the match was effectively won long before the final siren. A Tyler Darwin goal in the first quarter and another goal from Keith Hall in the last was the total effort from the Bombers. Mallala did virtually all the attacking from start to finish. Jono Wildbore, Nathan Griffiths and Brett Start all had goals before the Bombers got on the board. Brett Start was on fire early, and along with Jono Wildbore, Chris Hallion and Jesse Crewdson, helped Mallala to a 17-point lead at the first break. Early second quarter goals to Jesse Crewdson and Brett Tucker added to Hamley’s woes. Some Mallala inaccuracy let the Bombers off the hook to a minor degree. Adam Baker and Mitchell Gregory in defence were trying hard to stem the tide. Andrew Sheath was good in ruck, but for the Bombers it was too few expected to do too much. Mallala’s Jesse Crewdson, Brett Start, Hayden Riley, Brett Tucker and Reece Kerr all had big games. A 10-goals-to-one second half completed the rout. Mallala started the third term with four goals before hitting the post three times in a row. Brett Start was in sensational touch, constantly driving Mallala into attack. Reece Kerr and Ben Goudie gave ‘Starter’ plenty of assistance. Brett Tucker at centre half forward was unbeatable, ending the game with four goals. Chris Hallion was in superb form and with Jono Wildbore, Hayden Riley and Jase Morgan getting plenty of the ball, it was all Mallala. Kurubyn Floyd put in four solid quarters for Hamley Bridge. Andrew Sheath, Peter Burman, Sam Wedding and Adam Baker all tried hard. Young Sam Collings showed plenty of promise. Mallala are now set for the first semi final preview against Two Wells this week, with the big question being, “What hairstyle/colour will Whitey put on display for this match?” back on the ground for the Bombers, and Joel Montgomerie left the ground for Mallala. Mallala’s defence made sure key Bomber forward, Brett Burgess hardly saw the ball. James Wildbore across half back was in career best form, and Robert Montgomery picked up a heap of touches. The last quarter saw the match draw to its inevitable result. Mallala ran the game out with a four goal term. Brian Montgomery bagged another two, Daniel Feeley another, and Liam Whitwell chimed in with one. Mallala forwards, Daniel Feeley, Brian Montgomery and Brent Harris booted 10 of the 14 goals scored. Jason Earl was the pick of the ‘Pies. James Barr had his best A grade game, along with Christian Rimmer, Nathan Hornhardt, Sam Angus, Jon Clarke, James Wildbore and Liam Whitwell. Mallala are in improving form leading into the finals. BOMBERS senior colts vice captain, Liam Henneker charges towards the ball, while Mallala’s Jake Charnstrom attempts a tackle. Mallala lads now finals bound Senior Colts What looked like the game of the day on paper – third versus fifth – turned out to be a one-sided affair, with Mallala winning by 114 points. Inaccurate early, Mallala’s goal kicking improved as the game progressed. Leading by 56 points at half time, the Magpies continued on with two more quarters of quality football. Jake Birchmore led the goal kickers with four majors, capably assisted by Dylan Kearns with three, Ben Martin, Zac Hallion, Lewis Bruggemann and Lewis Helps with two each. Trent Graham and Allen Sparks chipped in with singles. Captain Ben Martin was best on ground. Jake Birchmore again put in a classy display. Lewis Helps, Allen Sparks and Zac Hallion are all having big seasons and once more were among Mallala’s best. Vice captain Liam Henneker was best for Hamley. He had good support from Jeremy Paues, Rhys Darwin, Sam Collings, Dylan Poulton and Jordan Talbot. An impressive win by the finals-bound Mallala, with the games getting more difficult from now on. Young Magpies remain unbeaten Junior Colts Mallala maintained their unbeaten run with a comfortable win over Hamley Bridge. After a sluggish first half, Mallala hit top gear in a powerhouse run home, booting 10 second half goals Brad Wilson had a field day up forward for Mallala booting six goals. Riley Thorne was the ‘Pies other multiple goal kicker, with singles supplied by Austin Kearns, Jarrad Dunstan and Adam Coe. Adam Coe was once again best on ground for Mallala, with Brad Wilson’s six majors earning him second best. Other good performers were Josh Watson, Angus Clothier, Jamie Good and Austin Kearns. The Bombers’ goal kickers were all singles courtesy of Katelyn Rosenzweig, Bayley Easlea, Jayden Wedding and Sam Rosenzweig. Best for Hamley Bridge was Jayden Wedding, with solid efforts from Dylan Collings, Connor Buckby, Angus Hudson, Sam Rosenzweig and Sam McCabe. Plains Producer, Wednesday August 10, 2011 SPORT v Football Peter Argent’s review continued… EAGLE Tim Forrest is ready for a mark, but Ram Ryan Starr is there to spoil One-sided affair seals another win for ‘Pies Seven goals-to-one in the first quarter ensured the Magpies’ handsome 13-goal victory over a haphazard Hamley Bridge side that had only a few winners. The Bombers had just four scoring shots for the game and were never in the contest. “We were going really well in the opening term, before the rain came,” Mallala coach Keith Earl said. “There must have been between 30 to 40 points of rain in the second and third quarters. “Our on-ball brigade was very good and choked up the opportunities for the Hamley Bridge forwards. “It was Jason’s (Earl) second game since the Landmark Cup in June and Christian’s (Rimmer) first match back since the Country Championships.” Jason Earl and Liam Whitwell starred in Mallala’s victory, while back pocket James Wildbore and fellow midfielder Christian Rimmer both had days out as well. Returning wingman, Sam Angus and in and under” onballer James Barr were solid contributors as well. Full back Luke Chadwick completed outclassed Bombers full forward Brett Burgess, keeping him virtually kick-less. Small forward Daniel Feeley and from the goal square Brian Montgomery both kicked four goals each for the game. Both Feeley (with 24), Montgomery (43) and centre half forward Brent Harris (20) who kicked two goals on Saturday, are among the top 10 goal kickers in Adelaide Plains football this year. Only Adam Pepe, who rucked for the majority of the day, Dylan Lockwood and Josh Moody who came off after half time, could be considered as Bombers players who had won their positions. The strongly built Shane Catterall, Ashley Natt and Rhys Savage each were manful in the big loss. Both teams collected injury to key players. The Magpies had medal favourite Joel Montgomerie leave the ground before half time with a groin injury, while Bombers ruckman Justin Schahinger did an ankle early and Aaron Christmann tweaked a hamstring. Rams win shatters Eagles’ finals chances Except for the second term when Hummocks-Watchman kicked sixgoals-to-three, the Rams comfortably won most facets of this round 17 contest at Virginia Oval. Virginia collected victory in the end by a significant 50-point margin. It effectively put a dagger through the heart of any real chance for the Eagles to play major round football in 2011. “It was a very good start and our first ‘opening term’ win in about six weeks,” Rams coach Greg Phillips said. “They were playing for fourth spot and came back in the second quarters, but we controlled most of the rest of the game. “We refocused a bit after half time, and it was good to get the job done especially for our sponsors who had an important day under the marquee.” From Smithfield at the start of the year Ben Russel was giving the Rams best player honours, and when Hummocks Watchman made their charge in the second term he was given the task of quelling Joel Wilson. Ram Matt Young played a pivotal role in the middle, while Troy Wilkey played with his usual purpose and attack on the ball. Rocky Perre on his wing, in defence Nathan Warren and Emmauel Tsimiklis all were telling as well. “A number of the local lads like Cameron Felstead, Rocky Perre, Daniel Kerr, along with defenders Devon Oliver and Warren all are starting to gain some consistency at this level,” Phillips said. “Our ruckman Leif Burden in his first game back, after cracked ribs was a strong contributor as well. “(Brendon) Niklaus was only 50-50 to play after suffering from the flu and migraines was going into the contest. He did a sterling job up forward.” Niklaus finished his days work with the seven-goal haul and now has 78 for the season. Veteran Joss Denengelse, Wilkey, Felstead, Peter Mylonopoulos and Chris James all got in on the goal kicking act, each getting two. Evergreen on-baller Lee Belperio was the Eagles best, followed by captain Matthew Higgs and Todd Twelftree on a wing. Ricky Mackereth, Simon Schutz and Scott Allen with three goals all were solid for Hummocks Watchman. The trio Dylan Cicolella, Higgs and Wilson each kicked two goals. EAGLE Joel Wilson about to dodge Ram Billy Nikou in A grade. Undefeated Cats charging towards finals A potent first half ensured BlythSnowtown’s 14th win of the season against an underperforming and injury riddled South Clare side. Played at Blyth Oval, the Cats had 23 scoring shots to five at half time, leading by 58 points at this point. While their lead extended in the second half, and they won in the end by a massive 80 point margin, the game didn’t improve as a spectacle. “South stayed with us for the first half of the opening term,” Cats coach, Brett Ireland “Six goals in 17 minutes into the breeze towards the township or northern end in the second quarter, ensured the result. “We brought up two players from the reserves and a pair of under 17s for this contest. “Harry Norton and Matt Thomas both played their first A grade games.” Nick McCormack and Ryan Darling were prime movers for the Cats through the middle, while Shay Clifford did a sterling job at centre half forward. Returning to the side for this game, Aaryn Lloyd won plenty of the ball. Key members of the in-form half back line, Craig Robinson and Gareth Ottens continued their good years. Strong marking medium forward, Scott Atkinson kicked four goals in the win, while Clifford and Aaryn Lloyd slotted through three each. “If you throw in Caleb Lloyd and Cameron Giles we still have 10 good players on the sidelines at the moment,” Ireland mused. “In this win both Kiel Kennett and AJ Wood were strong on the last line of defence. “Simon McCormack on the ball had an- NEFL REPORT: By Peter Argent other high possession game “Cameron Andriske collected a number of good touches and showed a lot of composure for an under 17 playing at A grade level.” Veteran Andrew Vandeleur, Mitchell Reynolds and South East recruit Daniel Kuhndt were the better players for the Demons. Heath Ward, last year’s Mail Medallist Brodie Murphy with three goals and Sam Heinrich were serviceable in a lost cause. Wayne Hutchinson also gave the Demons drive off half back. Young talents help Saints to third successive win A number of the Southern Saints developing young talents played big roles in their third successive victory in three weeks. This win came against a lowly North Clare side that are vying with BSR for the wooden spoon. Eudunda/Robertstown, like good sides do, started strongly and was 21 points up by quarter time. This increased to 40 points at the main break and while the contest was closer after the main break, the Saints still finished with a comfortable seven-goal win. Teenage midfielder Dylan Reese, defender Kip Dunstan and Marek Sajewicz were outstanding for the victors. Other youngsters, Kane Schulz, Tyler Friebel and Clinton Voigt each had a telling impact. Sajewicz also finished with a gamehigh three-goal haul, while Jared Mosey and Plains Producer, Wednesday August 10, 2011 Voigt kicked two each. Michael Harrold was the Roosters’ best, followed by Richard Moulds and captain Matt Ward. The Pawley boys Tyson (two goals) and Matthew had a little impact while Simon Jaeschke was also noteworthy. SHAY Clifford in action for the Cats on Saturday. Hawks set up early win Kicking 5.3 in the opening term, while BSR remained scoreless, set up RSMU’s win at Brinkworth Oval. The Tigers regrouped in the second term and they got back to with three goals at the long interval. This contest tightened up in the third quarter, before the Hawks came home stronger. The final margin was 25 points. Kimberley Hart’s rich vein of form continued in this contest, while captain Zack Hier and Andrew Hunt both played important roles. Patrick Clark, David Schulze in defence and James Vandeleur also made the best player list, while Tyson Willmott and Brad Koster kicked three goals each. Matt Thomas led the way for the Tigers, followed by youngsters Jake Lynch and Lachie Bunfield. Simon Hayes, lanky big man Ash Burgess and recruit Scott Morris all had an impact, while Paul Meyer and state under 19 cricketer Kyron Burgess kicked two goals each. Third term comeback by Eagles seals the victory Despite kicking just seven points in the first quarter, the Eagles still were able to beat BBH by 11 points and keep the fight for double chance in the major round alive. Mintaro-Manoora was still 10 points down at half time, before kicking 5.5 to 1.1 in the third term. The Rams did step up the intensity in the final term, by were able to exert more scoreboard pressure on the hosts. Among the leading players for the Eagles at Manoora Oval included Ash Winders, big man Nathan Forrest, along with midfielders Brad Currie and Shawn Gibson. Luke McDermid and Shane Ross both had a strong impact as well. In a low scoring game Stuart Pike kicked three important goals while Michael Prince chimed in with two. Nick Jackman continued his fantastic season for the BBH side in the middle. Utility James Reilly, defender Steve “the wolfman” Mann and David Reed all had their moments. The trio of Geoff “Digger” Thompson, Casey Cooper and left footer Bohdan Wall kicked two goals each for visitors. www.plainsproducer.com.au 23 SPORT v Football Tigers will test big guns …but in-form Rams should send United home winless Virginia v United After a handsome win last week, Virginia are expected to welcome back Anthony Johnston and Adrian Mark, who were late withdrawals from last week’s game for this clash against the fourth placed United Tigers. A concern for Travis Optiz and his defensive unit is to close down Brendon Niklaus. He is averaging six goals a game and is a potent target for the Rams. RAM Anthony Johnston Both Chris James and on-baller Troy Wilkey have also proved secondary avenues to goal, kicked upwards of a goal per game. Greg Phillips has received exemplary service from new recruit this year, Ben Russel while Emmanuel Tsimiklis and Matthew Young are starting to find some form. Graham Rigney is also an important part of the Rams’ mid field rotations and a player Phillips does rely on heavily. One of the form players on the year, before his knee injury in the Country Championships, Caleb Howell is back running again, which is promising for the Rams. PETER ARGENT’S APFL preview E: email@example.com M: 0411 178 444 peter’s KIss of Death: Magpies by 23 Rams by 17 Peckers by 64 United gave both Sam McArdle and Michael Davey about a quarter and a half of game time last week. After missing the three point thriller against Two Wells, Matt East, Adam Mansfield and Jack Chapman are expected to be available for this game. It is also suggested the Tigers’ leading goal kicker, Peter Burgoyne is expected to play in this clash as well. If United can start to settle their team, they may just test some of the big guns. But against the Rams side, in strong form, they should be on the receiving end of a defeat. It should be a willing contest though. Two Wells v Mallala It has been heart breaking for the Two Wells Football Club in their landmark 100th season. Last week they lost to United by three points. In early July they fell short against the ladder leaders Virginia by five points, and in the celebration game against Hummocks-Watchman, they went down by the smallest of margins. Like Saturday’s clash with Mallala, all but the contest with the Rams was on home turf, suggesting the Roosters play their home ground well. Both Khan, with his unique kicking style, and Tallan Leighton, along with Ned Seccafien have been in excellent form for Two Wells. Ben Spiteri is a noted ball winner at the stoppages, and the young side has plenty of players who can break lines and carry the ball. Saturday they run into the most potent midfields in the competition. MAGPIE Joel Montgomerie The “big four”, Jason Earl, Christian Rimmer, Joel Montgomerie and the ultra consistent Liam Whitwell are lynch pins in the Magpies’ game plan. They have good targets in attack in Brian Montgomery and Brent Harris and a host of crumb- ing small forwards who can kick goals. The Magpies coaching staff is of the firm belief that the secret to the club’s success is the mental attitude of the playing group. There are some concerns about Montgomerie’s groin and if there is any issue it would be expected he’d have a rest this week. It has been confirmed Brad Hardie will not play again this year, but on the positive side the Magpies will welcome Josh Seal back as well. All the indicators suggest the Magpies should collect another win, but don’t underestimate the young Roosters. While the Peckers have enjoyed the week’s break to rejuvenate, the Hamley Bridge brains trust will be sweating on injury concerns over number one ruckman, Justin Schaninger, along with midfielders Aaron Christmann and Josh Moody. Enjoying a good season so far, Adam Pepe was forced to lead the ruck last week, winning innumerable taps, but for the Bombers to have their best chance of an unlikely win, he is better suited to a defensive role. Hamley Bridge v Balaklava Having the most frugal defence in the Adelaide Plains Football League, Balaklava’s underlying strength isn’t just its power packed forward line. The Peckers backmen have conceded just 868 points in 14 games at just over 10 goals a match. With players like Les Pearson, Derek Fredricks and Brenton Lamond leading the way in this area, this statistic is better than both the ladder leading Rams and Mallala. Saying that, Balaklava also has many avenues to goal. Glenn Dawson (63), Jonno Brice (38) and playing coach Stuart Lamond (30) currently have 131 goals between them. Leading big man Hayden Walker and midfielder Todd McPharlin are also averaging more than a goal a game. BOMBER Dylan Lockwood Dylan Lockwood and Shane Caterall have been winning their share of the ball in the midfield. Still, the difference between these sides isn’t the leading players, it is the difference in the respective depths of the rival squads. Hamley Bridge proved last round they’re able to compete for a period of time, but it is expected that the Peckers will run over the top of them in the second half. Roosters now scratching for APFL wooden spoon NO WAY OUT: Tiger Daniel Marron struggles to release himself from the grips of Roosters Bradley Struck and Kyron Lovell during the Reserves match on Saturday. 24 www.plainsproducer.com.au WHAT does Two Wells have to do to get a win these days? The Roosters lost their fourth match by less than a kick on Saturday and looking at the ladder, if they won those four games, they would be just outside the four by percentage. After so many nailbiters, I noticed Two Wells president, Jeff Moon, was nibbling half way down his palm in the last five minutes on the weekend. Sadly, the Roosters are eyeing off the wooden spoon with the Bombers at the bottom of the table. It would be easy for people at the club to point the finger if they had any left. United got the job done, like they should have, and have sealed their spot in the finals for 2011. I was glad to see Mikey Brown alive and well. Keith is clearly a forgiving soul. News filtering out of the Kadina Hotel this week that two premiership heroes from the Blood- THE BANDWAGON With Rick Shaw hounds, could be fronting up as Tigers under the water tower next year. Former Western Bulldog. Cameron Faulkner and teammate Willy Serle are the names being thrown about in many drinking and thinking circles. Now, the thing about drinking and thinking circles is one activity usually inhibits the other, although Faulkner does have a link with the area, living in Mallala with wife Louise, who plays netball for the Magpies. There are unconfirmed reports the Mallala Football Club has had several real cracks at getting Cameron over to the Magpies in recent times. But perhaps he is out of their league, financially speaking? This is where United step in. It’s only a short drive from Mallala out to the water tower and the Tigers are sure to have something stored away in the club’s coffers for someone of Faulkner’s ilk. While Peter Burgoyne hasn’t exactly set the world alight at United, Faulkner has been a revelation at Kadina. Serle has also impressed with the Bloodhounds, booting 14 goals on the weekend, now with 77 for the season. The thing is, if United can lure Faulkner across, along with Serle, perhaps this could magnify the Burgoyne affect. We all know what Burgoyne could do if he actually put the effort in, could Faulkner and Serle inspire a second wind out of the former Power champ? It might be worth the gamble. Football lookalikes I’ve received several submissions for this one coming up. Two Wells Reserves player, Mark Illingworth, strongly resembles Richmond goal-kicking ace, Jack Riewoldt. Plains Producer, Wednesday August 10, 2011 SPORT v District Golf BALAKLAVA LADIES Sixteen intrepid golfers took to the fairways on Thursday for the first round of the Club Championships and Dixon Cup. A grade winner was Norma Taylor 74, on a countback from Cathy Redpath and Louise Michael, followed by Patricia Anderson 78 and Jill Taylor 79. B grade winner was Joan Anderson 74, followed by Tania Matz 77, Tanya Greenshields 82, Moya Hayes 83 and Cherie Taylor 87. C grade produced a standout player in Denby Wandel nett 68, followed by Josie Thompson 78, Julia Hoskin and Sue Freidrichs both 87 and Tania Allen 95. Tanya Greenshields had the only birdie for the day on number 8. It was a cheap round as far as NTP’s were concerned, as nobody managed to find the green.

Quote for the week: “They say ‘practice makes perfect’. Of course it doesn’t. For the vast majority of golfers it merely consolidates imperfection.” – Henry Longhurst. Balaklava men It was a “royal occasion” last weekend, one which attracted a fervent field of flanneled flailers, foaming to feast on the riches offered by our magnificent sponsor, the Royal Hotel. No less than 11 four-person packs assembled to participate in this major Stableford event and therefore now, without further ado, I do or adieu, we present: It took a team, which comprised a cabinet maker, a teacher, a railway-man and a world-weary hack, to set the standard on the day. This pack of partisans, namely Willums Parkin and Lokan, along with jumpin’ Geoff Leo, that protagonist of things pyrometric and his fellow C-grader Austin Henstridge, to march in across the car park with 66 off the stick, for a nett (or gross - take your pick) of 57.5. Now, from here on in it all gets a bit messy, as ever-busy Merv and his 2IC, Dave Rodgers, a little edgy having just come from one of his develish all-night ludo parties, didn’t really follow through, what with all the emotions and hormones whizzing around at the time, so we’ll go for that teaming of temeritous tyros Tate Michael, Lochlan Michael, Dylan Pfeiffer (?) and Jason Henderson as coming home in second place (70 = 58 + 3/8), which therefore leads us to consider the efforts of one Paul Thompson and his melange of Michaels Scott, Callum and Ben, with 69 = 59 + 5/8 to claim third dibs. All the other teams didn’t win, so I’ll just peel ‘em off as the cards fall, to wit: W Berry, D. Trickett, G. Sonntag and J. “Welcome Back Lad!” Michael, (65 = 10.75), J McBride, J Taylor, B Harkness and B Freebairn ( 78 = 63.75), D and N Taylor, M Hameister, M Hayes and mystery-man “Bruce” (71 = 61.25), M Loy, W Nagle, D Addison and D Rodgers (69 = 61), I Michael, P Freidrichs, T Matz and A Manuel (72 = 61.25), B Thompson, D and W Goudie plus J Curnow (74 = 63.50), A Northcott, D Masson, T Northcott and P Moebus (71 = 61.25), not to mention the tenacious tripling of P Thompson, B Fremantle and G Anderson (71 = 60). Longest Drives were smote by Norma Taylor, Andrew “Manual” and Callum Michael, while Nearest The Pins belonged to Bill Parkin on the third, Ian Michael (8th), Paul Mobeus (10th), Ian Michael (again!) on the 13th and Paul Thompson (15th). On a somewhat dimmer, more sober note, we regret to inform you all of the passing of this year’s Westklava Cup, planned for this Sunday, due to a damnable diminution of delegates from the big smoke. This Saturday, however, it all gets very official, as our glorious Match Committee dons its jack-boots and pith helmets to ensure a “most orderly start” for the first round of the hallowed, yet curiously catholic Club Championship, the first of three such Stroke rounds, which involve also the eminent Eddie Dennison putting trophy, a truly magnificent addition to our awards collection, thanks to the efforts, dedication and craftsmanship of Bill Parkin.

Hockey clare & districts Under 17 report from games played on August 6 UNDER 17 Balaklava v Springstown Both teams were awarded short corners early in the game, which was the beginning of a tightly fought match. Gian Haasbroek, Tim Heslop and Jesse Shepherd tightened up the defence and were almost impenetrable for most of the first half. Both teams worked hard to get the ball and the competition was fierce. Balaklava skillfully moved the ball around, worked it in to the circle where Jordan Hamann had an opportunity at goal, however, Springstown’s last line of defence was too good. Balaklava were well supported through the middle with Hedley Greenshields, Marni Greenshields and Tamara Gates working well together, ably backed up by Joe Goldney, Tim Goldney and Micah Hamann. Springstown also worked well together moving the ball and contesting everything. Just before half time, Springstown were able to get one past the back lines, getting around goalie Brock Hamann for their only goal of the game. The second half saw both teams come out strong and their determination was evident as play was very strong though the middle with play changing directions all the time. It was a great game to watch. Both teams had their opportunities to score both from short corners and from general play, with a couple of close chances keeping the goalies on the alert. Balaklava’s team consisted of a number of under 14 players – Ethan Gates, Riley Chapman, Mitchell Lawrie, Gian Haasbroek, Micah Hamann and Tim Goldney. They did well to hold their own against stronger players. At the final whistle, Springstown were one goal to nil. Well played Balaklava. This week the games are at Balaklava.

Hamley, Long Plains shake top four sides PETER ARGENT’S APNA review AMANDA McHugh receives the ball mid-air for Two Wells during the A1 match at home, while Long Plains centre, Leah Tynan closes in to defend. E: firstname.lastname@example.org M: 0411 178 444 Hamley shock Mallala in draw In a surprise result, the team at the foot of the ladder, Hamley Bridge, shared the points with the third placed Magpies and could have been considered unlucky not to collect a win in the round 17 match on the Mallala courts. When the final whistle sounded, the scores were locked away on 39 apiece. “This was a disappointing outcome for us, since we were aiming for a solid win,” Magpies coach Courtney Kerr said. “Nevertheless, there were still many positive outcomes from the game such as our versatility and ability to come back into the game. “The accuracy of Hamley’s goal shooters was a big advantage for them and they adapted to wet weather a lot easier than us. “‘Midge’ May had a consistent game in defence and provided much needed turnovers particularly in the second half. “Tracy Kennett had a great game in attack and her speed through the midcourt is essential to our game plan. “We are now looking forward to an exciting game against Two Wells this coming week.” As expected circle defender Nerida May was given the best player nod by the umpires for the hosts. For Hamley Bridge the ultra consistent Pamela Mattschoss was there leading performer again. Longies upset Wells girls In an intriguing game of netball, Long Plains grabbed a four-goal victory over a top four side, Two Wells on their courts. The Longies girls jumped out to a four goal lead by quarter time, and this gradually edged out to seven by lemons, before the Roosters attacked in the APNA RESULTS Embroidery & Screen Printing Specialists Results of Adelaide Plains Netball Association matches played on Saturday A1: Mallala 39 (Nerida May) drew with Hamley Bridge 39 (Pamela Mattschoss).

Along with Two Wells best player Nicole Hardy at goal defence, Mia Darling was strong for the Roosters as well. Steph Walker was a solid performer playing as a shooter, while Rebecca Pym worked hard in the mid court, in ultimately what was a losing cause for the hosts. Hummocks topple depleted Ramettes Ladder leaders, Hummocks demolished Virginia at the Rammettes indoor courts. By quarter time they were already 18 goals up, with the defence only allowing two goals for the term. This ascendency continued for the remainder of the game, although the Virginia shooter gained slightly better shooting percentages as the game progressed. APNA Premiership Tables Sponsored by...

For the well-beaten Virginia side, the consistent Tracey Agius never stopped trying and she was rewarded by the officials.
