Film star kelpie at Kapunda Farm Fair “We are proud to be making an appearance at the Kapunda Farm Fair and assisting in raising money for a great cause - the Barossa Valley branch of the Make a Wish Foundation Australia. “Dustan just loves having his photo taken so everyone can take the opportunity to be pictured with him,” Danny said. You can have your photo taken with adorable Dustan for $5 at the Kapunda Farm Fair and take home a print. Proceeds go to the Barossa Valley Branch of the Make a Wish Foundation Australia.

THE famous and lovable Kelpie, Dustan, our Freeling celebrity who appeared in the very popular and award-winning movie “Red Dog” will be making a grand appearance at the Kapunda Farm Fair on Saturday, April 21. Dustan is one of five beautiful kelpies that appeared in the movie, including his full brother, Koko. The movie “Red Dog” is a 2011 Australian family film directed by Kriv Stenders and produced by Nelson Woss and Julie Ryan. The film is based on a true story from the novel “Red Dog”. At the 2011 Inside Film Awards “Red Dog” was nominated in nine categories and won seven, including Best Feature Film. Dustan’s ‘Dad’, Danny said, “Dustan takes his celebrity status in his stride and he is an old hat at making movies. “Dustan also appeared in another Australian movie called “Home”, with the same director, Kriv Stenders. “Dustan is such a friendly boy and everyone loves him - he thinks he is human.” Danny said.

Fighting on all fronts By JOHN CRAWFORD


THE Middle East is a long way from the quiet streets of Lyndoch where she grew up, but Michelle Rayner (pictured) wouldn’t have it any other way. She is aboard the HMAS Melbourne, an Adelaide-Class guided missile frigate operating in and around the Red Sea and Gulf of Oman. The ship is providing support for maritime security operating to counter terrorism, smuggling and piracy activities in the region, as part of operation Slipper. Even though she is fighting the war on terror as Sub-lieutenant Rayner, she has also been fighting to raise funds for cancer research at home in Australia. The 26-year-old and another crew member have raised more than $8000 for the Children’s Cancer Institute Australia, getting their heads shaved in the process. Speaking from the HMAS Melbourne at sea in the Middle East, Michelle said the pair has been using email to contact family and friends of those on board to gather support, as well as organising events on the ship. “We had a ‘Melbourne’s Got Talent’ competition where people could enter and sing or play musical instruments,” she said.

“We have been raising funds for about six weeks, then the winner of the competition and the person who donated the most money on board shaved our heads at the end of the competition.” Working as an assistant supply officer, Michelle is on her first deployment with the navy, having left Sydney on February 11. “Over here, we can be re-tasked at any time,” she said. “We need to be ready to do that, and that requires a massive team effort, which we are always able to accept whatever mission we are given.” She said the navy offers the perfect opportunity to forge a unique career path. “In the Barossa, there is not a real interest in the defense force,” she said. “When I joined there was only myself and one other person from Adelaide, out of about 130. It is a great career opportunity for someone who wants to get out and do something a little bit different.” Michelle studied at Lyndoch Primary and Nuriootpa High before she moved to Sydney in 2009 to join the navy. Her parents and sister still call the Barossa Valley home. The HMAS Melbourne is due back in Sydney in August. PIC: Sergeant Mick Davies.

Meet Barossa Council’s Five running for new chief executive Gawler Council

THE Barossa Council has welcomed a new chief executive officer, Martin McCarthy from the South-East. The 41-year-old father-of-two and husband to Lisa was the CEO of Kingston District Council for seven and a half years. He will begin his role in the Barossa in June. Martin brings a wealth of experience in state and local government in finance, economics and business management at senior management level. He said it’s the grassroots achievements that attracted him to local government. “What I love about local government is we can do things quickly and I enjoy that, I enjoy doing things for the community,” Martin said.

THE Easter break has passed and the Herald is straight back into the swing of things, but we haven’t forgotten about all the action from the long weekend. This week the Herald features Maureen Wake, a volunteer who helps bring surprises to the animals at Monarto Zoo each Easter. Collingrove hosted a Hillclimb event on Easter Monday, which is featured in this week’s edition on page four. Easter also means it was Oakbank racing on the weekend, and there is a gallery online at of racing action from Saturday. This week’s print edition of the Herald includes a wrap for the Kapunda Farm Fair on Friday April 20 and Saturday April 21 at Kapunda Paceway. Featuring a map and a list of all the events throughout each day, it is essential for anyone planning a day out at the fair. The Herald will be in the thick of the action with a photographer capturing all the colour and excitement from the fair. If you want to see your and your family or friend’s faces in the Herald, keep an eye out for our roving photographer and let them know you are keen for a photo and you could see it printed in the following week’s paper.

Robin ‘Nobby’ Symes, Dianne Hockley, Barry Neylon, Andrew Paroczy and Craig Dunstan have all nominated. Candidate nominations closed on Thursday, and postal ballot material for voting is expected to be sent out from next week. Voting closes at midday on May 7, 2012. Craig Dunstan (pictured) said he is running for Gawler Council because he believes he will make a positive contribution to the Gawler community. “If elected I will strive to ensure council decision making reflects the need of our rapidly growing community,” he said. “My core interest lies in improving our Gawler community for all residents; especially in the areas of local infrastructure, main street congestion, the integration of upcoming community developments and raising the profile of our community as a tourist and retail hub.”

Protection laws change

Nuriootpa High School Open Day

The interim DPA will ease some of the restrictive development requirements introduced in September last year, while still protecting the region from urban sprawl. Mr Rau said the new Bills would allow councils to refine the planning rules for their area. The new interim DPA enables reasonably expected development to occur in towns, allows housing on allotments already designated for rural living with some design measures, and enables development that supports primary production. Mr Rau said it had been a challenge to get the right balance for the important tourism, winemaking and agricultural areas. “I believe that through the introduction of this new DPA, we can continue supporting economic growth in the Barossa and McLaren Vale and deliver an excellent interim solution for the community,” Mr Rau said. The interim DPA will be subject to a new period of formal consultation with the community and anyone who made a written submission on the previous interim DPA to be invited to make a new submission.

A NEW interim development plan amendment (DPA) protecting the Barossa Valley from urban sprawl has been introduced to parliament. The new DPA came into effect on Thursday, providing revised controls to protect the region in response to community concerns about overly restricted development in the previous DPA. This former DPA, which was introduced in September last year to accompany legislation to protect the Barossa Valley from urban sprawl, classed virtually all development in the Barossa protected area as non-complying, forcing all applications to go before the Development Assessment Commission. Planning minister John Rau said it is vital measures are put in place to protect the integrity and culture of the Barossa Valley. “Last year we took quick and decisive action to protect these unique areas from inappropriate development and urban sprawl with the introduction of an interim DPA,” he said. “I have listened to local council and community feedback and am taking further action that will allow appropriate development activities to occur in the protection districts.”

Mr Kerrigan said the new branding would also separate council from the services it provides. “Council wanted to have more impact when there were matters associated with council, or the services provided, or the matters associated with promoting Gawler,” he said. “The thing with councils is that not everything is about the council as such, it is more about the services we deliver. “We wanted to separate the corporation of council from some of the other issues we deal with, and to also promote

Gawler.” Council signs are also being replaced with the new Gawler branding, which will be done in accordance with the regular replacement schedule. Gawler’s distinctive street name signs with blue writing on a yellow background will also soon be a thing of the past. “The Australian standard is to have black (writing) on a reflective white background and council will gradually be replacing those and any new signs that go up, especially in the new subdivisions, we will be looking at them being compliant with the Australian standard of being black on a white reflective background,” Mr Kerrigan said.

THE new visual identity for Gawler has been launched and is already making an impact. Banners have been hung in Murray Street and from the Gawler Council chambers, while the Gawler Council website has been overhauled with the new branding and colour scheme. The update aims to represent the history, environment, culture and heritage of the Gawler area, with the three circles in the logo representing Light Square, Orleana Square and Parnell Square in the town. Gawler Council chief executive officer Stephen Kerrigan said there had previously been a number of images council was portraying for Gawler including ‘The best of town and country” slogan, the council crest, and a silhouette of a jumping horse. He said with expected growth in the area in the near future, it was the right time to create the new brand. “Council is embarking on a change and about how we promote our town, especially with the anticipated growth over the next five to 10 years, and council felt it was the opportune time to get our

SPEED: Michael Bartsch in action in his BA Ford Falcon at Eastern Creek in March. INSET: Michael Bartsch.

Win tickets to the Shannons Nationals THE Herald has two double passes to give away to attend the Shannons Nationals this weekend at Mallala Raceway. Simply send an email to with your name and contact phone number in the subject line. The winners will be drawn at noon on Thursday, April 12 and contacted immediately by phone. One entry per person. The tickets are valid for both Saturday and Sunday. And one of the lucky winners will be given a ‘hot lap’. So be quick with an entry.

Touring car action heats up MALLALA will roar to life with motorsport action this weekend for the Shannons Nationals. Tanunda driver Michael Bartsch will be in the thick of the action, driving his BA Ford Falcon in the Kumho Tyres V8 Touring Cars event. The series started last month in New South Wales at Eastern Creek, with Mallala hosting the second round. Bartsch said things did not go well in the first round and he was looking to improve this weekend. “We didn’t have the right parts to get the set-up right for that track so we struggled all weekend, but still came away with sixth for the round from the 20-odd cars that were there,” he said. “It is not what we were hoping to achieve, we were hoping to be fighting for the win.” Bartsch will tackle this weekend looking to not only improve on last month’s performance, but also to better the third placing he drove in his old vehicle at Mallala last year. “I finished third there last year in my old car, and this is a better car than that,” he said.

“Some local knowledge as well should help to keep me in front. “Our team has got a test day on Wednesday (today), so we will try and get the car sorted out and get the handling right and then everyone else will be there on Friday for more practice.” He said the plan is to qualify near the front of the field and stay there. “It is much easier to run up the front than it is in the midfield,” he said. “You don’t have to worry about what everyone else is doing - you can drive your own race.” Other races at the Shannons Nationals include the sports sedans, Porsches, the Holden versus Ford battle of the saloon cars, the V8 Commodore Cup, the Australian Swift Racing Series and other sprint races. Tickets are available via or at the gate. Weekend passes are $40, with kids under 14 admitted free. Saturday only entry is $25 and Sunday is $35. Racing commences Saturday afternoon after qualifying and continues on Sunday.

In brief...

Zoo’s Easter treat WHILE many people indulged in Easter treats over the weekend, one Angaston woman made sure the animals cared for at Monarto Zoo were given their share. Maureen Wake, aged 66 and a volunteer at the zoo along the Princes Highway, made brightly coloured paper mache Easter eggs filled with dried fruit and vegetables. A member of the Catering for Conservation Group at Monarto Zoo, Maureen prepares food treats for the animals as part of the Zoo’s BEEZA (Behavioural Environmental Enrichment Zoo Animals) program. For over five years Maureen has been travelling from her Angaston home to Monarto every Tuesday where she volunteers as a guide and BEEZA ambassador. She says her love of animals, dates back to a happy childhood growing up on a farm in Mt McKenzie. These days nothing gives her more pleasure than a day spent each week at Monarto. “It’s just like going home - I see the gates and I think it’s so nice to be back again. I love the animals, I love talking to people and I love being in the scrub,” she said. “If I lived closer to the zoo I'd be there every day.” Maureen, who worked at Yalumba Wines for 26 years before her retirement, signed up as a volunteer at the zoo about five years ago. Her husband Robert has also started accompanying her on the trips becoming a volunteer as a Mallee Minder. “Volunteering means we get to

VOLUNTEER: Maureen Wake with the Easter treat.

do what we love, learn new skills and make new friends and we get so much satisfaction from seeing the positive differences we make to the lives of the animals and the environment,” she said. Maureen says the BEEZA program is about thinking of new ways to enrich the animals’ lives by stimulating their ‘wild’ behaviours increasing natural activity levels and problem solving skills. “Sometimes we put peanut butter in dried hoses that have been donated to us, or dried fruit in magazines for the chimps to flick through and find.” She explained how the chimps

enjoy primate balls, which involve chopped up fruit and vegetables which are rolled up and frozen. “When I started I undertook a volunteer program with the zoo, and while it’s an ongoing learning process, when you're passionate about something it's easy to pick it up quickly. “Volunteering at the zoo is also very social, it’s lovely to arrive at work, sit down and chat over a coffee with my friends before checking the roster and heading off to the platforms or on the tours.” Maureen added, “We’ll keep going to the zoo for as long as we can, until neither of us can drive anymore”.

Making a splash BAREFOOT skier Jarrod Sieber, from Tanunda, is hoping to make a splash in Sydney this week. He is part of the South Australian team competing in the 50th National Barefoot competition. Jarrod is in the men’s Division Three of the competition, which began on Monday and runs until the weekend, with finals to be held on Friday and Saturday. Barefoot skiing might seem an unusual sport, but Jarrod says it needs plenty of skill and there is a huge adrenaline rush. “If you can imagine skiing without skis on the water and you have those beautiful mornings when there is no-one else on the river, and you have perfectly flat water and you are going 70kph - there is nothing like it,” he said. Jarrod has been barefoot skiing for the past five years and said skiers use a variety of tricks to earn points. “One of the main tricks is tumble-turns where you drop to your bum I suppose, then spin around 360 degrees on your back, then stand back up,” he said.

While injuries are a risk, Jarrod said it was a huge adrenaline rush. “If you are after an exciting, fast, extreme sport, this is it,” he said. There are three disciplines in barefoot skiing – tricks, slalom and jumps. In tricks, competitors have two15-second runs to perform a variety of tricks, each of which earns points that go towards their tally. Slalom sees the skier cross the wake of the tow boat as many times as possible in two runs, each of 15 seconds. Jumps are only undertaken by participants who have scored well enough in the previous two events to prove they have the ability to handle barefoot water skiing. In this event, skiers are towed towards a ramp, make the jump and have to stick the landing and ski away, with the jump distance measured by a camera. Anyone interested in barefoot water skiing can check out Barefoot SA’s Facebook page or contact Jarrod direct on 0403 533 811 if they are interested in giving it a go.

Blue for autism See Nutcracker on ice New Car ADD a splash of blue to your outfit, your work place or home this month to help raise awareness for Autism. The Light It Up Blue initiative is to support those who live with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, their families and carers. Member for Wakefield Nick Champion, who supports the cause, encourages people in his electorate to get behind Autism Awareness Month by also hosting a fundraiser or morning tea, or simply by talking to others about autism. Mr Champion said getting the right support to children with autism and their families in the early years had been a focus of the Australian Government in recent years. He said the government’s $220 million Helping Children with Autism package is the first national initiative to help families and children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. “It has been an enormous help to families, many of whom were previously receiving no services whatsoever,” Mr Champion said.

Be aware of falling

SUPPORTIVE: SA Dog Rescue volunteers (from left) Shane Jones and Carole Morries with Orlando staff Sara Martin, Rosemarie Connolly and Michelle Chisholm.

RESIDENTS are being encouraged to think about falls prevention in April as part of ‘Falls Awareness Month’. The aim of initiative is to raise public awareness about fall related injuries, and what people can do to stay safe. Each year about 13,000 older adults admitted into SA's public hospitals are due to injuries sustained from falls. While there is an ongoing myth that falls are an inevitable part of ageing, falls are often a sign that something is not right. Muscle and joint weakness and pain, dizziness or unsteady balance, poor eyesight and medications can all play a part in why people fall.

Incorporating strength and balance exercises into daily routines, eating healthily and having glasses and medication regularly checked can all help to reduce the risk of falling and getting injured. People are urged this month to identify and fix any potential hazards in the home, such as removing any cords or rugs that they could trip on, making sure they have good lighting and storing items within easy reach. Also, to discuss any fall with their doctor or health professional, so they can help to identify any risks and suggest ways to manage them. Throughout April, health services across the state will be

organising displays to help spread the message to patients, visitors, staff and the general community that falls can be prevented. Displays will be held at many public and private hospitals, day therapy centres, councils, GP offices and public libraries, providing people with useful falls information, including pamphlets, fact sheets, booklets, posters, badges and fun find-awords. Further information about falls prevention can be found on the Falls SA website: or for a range of fact sheets on how to stay healthy and prevent falls, visit

Raffle funds to help the dogs MORE than $4300 has been welcomed by a charity group that relies heavily on the generosity of others to see abandoned dogs cared for. SA Dog Rescue received the funds thanks to staff at Orlando Wines who held an Easter raffle in late March. The funds will be used to help reduce the rescue service's current vet bills, which total about $15,000. SA Dog Rescue founder Carole Morris said the animal charity is a ‘no kill’ rescue service that is run entirely by volunteers. She and partner Shane Jones, who attended the drawing of raffle winners at the Rowland Flat Gramp's Café, explained the not-forprofit group works by rescuing dogs and now cats and placing them into foster homes. “The animals are then cared for and given a variety of rehabilitation from walking with a lead to being out in the public,” Carole said. “In some cases the animals are adopted by the volunteers. However,

the dogs can be adopted by families or individuals wanting a companion either big or small.” Volunteers are located throughout the state including the Barossa and Gawler regions. This is the second time Orlando Wines has supported a worthy local cause. Earlier this year the company raised a similar amount to support Barossa Valley Meals on Wheels and the purchase of a hot box for the delivery of meals. A large pool of prizes for the Easter raffle included a signed Adelaide Crows Football and, of course, a large selection of premium wines donated by Orlando Wines, a brand company within Pernod Ricard. For those who would like to support SA Dog Rescue by way of money donations, food, blankets, bedding and veterinarian supplies or to become a sponsor, contact Carole on 0408 808 115. In addition, to adopt a dog, check out SA Dog Rescue Facebook page or visit to view photos.

The Bureau of Meteorology’s online maps now reveal weather forecast predictions for different times during the day, providing an easy to use tool by which residents can plan their weather-sensitive activities, simply by pointing and clicking at any point in a sixkilometre grid. The quality-controlled forecasts include maximum and minimum

temperatures, the likelihood of rain, and rainfall totals for any location. ‘Forecast Explorer’ also features access to four-day forecasts of wave and wind conditions on coastal waters. It’s said to be ideal for those planning weekend trips or contemplating heading out over a long weekend. ‘Forecast Explorer’ is part of the Bureau's Next Generation Forecast and Warning System, which received Federal Government funding of $30.5 million. In 2011 the Next Generation Forecast and Warning System improved forecasting for Elizabeth, Clare and Nuriootpa, providing them with the same seven-day forecasting services previously only available in major urban centres across Australia.

Council volunteers thanks WHILE we can all be quick to complain at times, there is often a good side to most things. Our club property was recently the target of senseless graffiti and as we had heard that the Gawler Council has a fab team of volunteers who spend their time keeping the town graffiti free, we alerted them to the damaged area. Being a club of volunteers we certainly appreciate the effort of these people who tirelessly attend to the removing of unsightly graffiti. Through the medium of your paper, we extend our sincere thanks to these kind volunteers and to the Gawler Council for facilitating this service. Our property is again looking as good as new thanks to their efforts - right in time for the new season to begin. A big thanks to all those involved for their assistance. Leanne Songer President, Gawler Central Netball Club Electrickery On reading Barbie Brown’s letter to the editor (Herald, March 28), I wondered how much credibility the first part of the letter actually has with all the facts and figures and biased opinions put forward. The last part of the letter certainly has no credibility and, here are some figures on Germany’s power generation. These figures are from 2011 and

are close to current figures. Coal accounts for 65 per cent, gas for 13 per cent, wind power for six per cent, nuclear for 13 per cent, and last but surely the inflated one in Barbie’s letter, solar accounts for just three per cent. If we are to be like Germany in the letter then we would only produce just three per cent, a mere pittance. How they would separate the solar power only during the days the sun shines from all other generators would be an interesting exercise before they export it? As for peak power loading with solar panels forget it. I agree that we have more sun to generate more power than many other countries. If any politicians of either major parties had the foresight to look into the future ahead of the money for coal which costs more to generate and gives an excuse to allow private operators to hike the prices up. Like many people, I believe solar panels are a great way forward in electricity generation but, we still need a reliable base load generator at all times. Dare I say it but, wind power gives power for more hours of the day on the forbidden hills, ear plugs supplied, than solar panels . Robert Chapman via e-mail Controversial view Recently I received the following email written by an anonymous

writer who for obvious reasons has refused to sign their name because the “do gooders” in our society would label them as being racist. I cross ocean, one way trip, pay people smuggler one big tip. Green man, his name Bob Brown, he welcomes all of us to town, he big man in government now I think, he sends us off to Centrelink. Welfare says, “You come no more, we send cash right to your door.” Welfare cheques they make you wealthy, Medicare it keep you healthy. By and by I get plenty money, thanks to you Aussie dummy. Write to friends in motherland, tell them come fast as you can, before all is changed to Abbott plan. They come in turbans and Toyota trucks, and buy big house with welfare bucks. They come here, we live together, more welfare cheques, it gets better. Fourteen families, they moving in, but neighbour patience wearing thin. Finally Aussie guy moves away, now I buy his house, then say find more immigrants for house to rent, and in the yard I put a tent. Everything is very good, and soon we own the neighbourhood. We have a hobby, it’s called breeding, welfare pay for baby feeding. Kids need dentist, wives need pills, we get free, we got no bills. Australians crazy, they work all year, to keep the welfare running here.

We think Australia darn good place, too darn good for Aussie race. If they not like us, they can scram, lots of space in Afghanistan. Name and address supplied Anzac support In my opinion, political correctness in this country is now bordering on insanity. How dare the federal government waste taxpayers’ money on a research paper, which appears to be suggesting that we should undermine our history and traditions, namely the recognition of Anzac Day? Why? The possible offence to some cultural minorities? How could the government even consider for one second such an offensive notion, that we should “water down” our traditions to please a few? What will be next? Remembrance Day? Easter? Christmas? Where is our sense of pride, our sense of self, our sense of who we are and where most of us have come from? Are we supposed to forget those thousands of people who have laid down, and are laying down, their lives for us in hideous circumstances so that we can live in peace and freedom? It is pretty clear to me that the Advertiser poll results on this issue show resoundingly that the majority agree with these sentiments. I am a pacifist, I hate wars, but if this pathetic government report is part of the multicultural agenda for Australia, then I think we are lost as a sovereign nation. Ms A Hodges Birdwood Human rights I write to alert readers to an important human rights issue the government is reviewing right now. The federal government now has three bills before the Senate comprising its “Stronger Futures” plan, one of which extends elements of the federal intervention in Aboriginal communities for a further 10 years. Over 33,000 people have signed a petition led by the ‘Stand for Freedom’ movement, which protests key actions under the intervention. A Senate inquiry is now scheduled to investigate this. In direct irony is the fact the government is, at the same time proposing to amend the Australian constitution to include Aboriginal people. Freedom from discrimination is enshrined in the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights which Australia supported at its birth in 1948. It is also written into various Australian anti-discrimination laws. Few people may be aware that the Racial Discrimination Act was in fact suspended from 2007 until 2010 to allow the federal intervention in Aboriginal communities. So how safe are human rights in Australia, when a government can just suspend laws when it feels like it? Australia is the only western democracy that does not have a human rights act. The United Nations Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay sharply criticised our performance in the areas of detainment of refugees and our treatment of Aboriginal people in May 2011. Ms Pillay also asked why our government does not support a human rights act? I personally asked John Howard when he was Prime Minister and was told it was best that politicians held this power rather than courts. Given some of government’s antics how can we trust them to protect our rights? The only protection is to know your human rights and educate others. If you don’t know them, you don’t know when they are being abused.

The United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights is simply explained on the website of There are booklets, DVDs and teaching plans all available free as a community service sponsored by the Church of Scientology Human Rights Department. Pass them round to everyone you know. Nigel Mannock Youth for Human Rights Australia Dundas, NSW ETSA issue It would appear that since the privatisation of ETSA, which at the time absolved the then state government of any further responsibility for the company, action of privatisation concurrently absolved ETSA from any responsibility to anyone at all. I admit to first hand knowledge of the fact and my story is quite simple. To facilitate the best use of my property which is no longer cultivated for a cereal crop I decided to invest a considerable sum of money in revegetation. Some 700-plus tubestock had been planted in 2011 and we were awaiting rain so as to allow self-seeding of the remainding land to progress. On arrival home on February 15 last I found no fewer than five ETSA vehicles on my property, including a cherrypicker, two trailers and a large mobile machine of some size together with a crane belonging to a well-known Murray Bridge crane company. On making enqiries from one of the ETSA employees as to the reason for the vehicles being on my property I was told “routine maintenance”. This in spite of the fact there was no ETSA infrastructure on my property. No easement exists on my property and therefore there was no reason nor permission for them being there. It would seem the maintenance was actually being undertaken on a stobie pole on the road verge adjacent to my home. It could easily be accessed from the road. As a result of this incursion, which took place as stated without permission and with total disregard of any possible damage I contacted ETSA by way of the corporate telephone line. I was told it was not possible to speak with any of the management (presumably too busy wining and dining in the executive dining room) to be disturbed in the carrying out of their sinecure. As a result I was foisted on to an underling whose duty, it appeared, was to field all such calls. I was informed a “procedure had to be followed” and subsequently gave the necessary information of my complaint receiving, in return, a reference number and an assurance my complaint had to be resolved “within 20 days”. I also rang the crane company to enquire as to what the crane was doing on my property and was told the matter was “confidential”. How strange. Almost like American “national security” excuses. As I had heard nothing from ETSA for some four weeks I rang ETSA again on March 13 to complain and received a call back from someone euphemistically called a “team manager”. I trust not a football team but suspect otherwise. He cheerfully made promises that compare very favourably with those made by politicians. All talk and no action. To date, now some eight weeks after the original complaint I am still waiting to see what excuses ETSA have for the trespass and not surprisingly, am not holding my breath to see what they intend to do about future intrusions and recompense for that of February 15. I am not holding my breath but am keeping a sharp look-out for aeronautical pigs. Robert H Mercer Mt Pleasant

Real Estate Liftout PROPERTY OF THE WEEK

SPACIOUS: The back yard area of the historic Lyndoch property.

A great opportunity AS RARE as hens teeth. Definitely worth a look is this halfacre allotment with over 100 metres of road frontage in Lyndoch. Currently on two titles the property has a circa 1890 stone cottage which was originally the headmaster’s residence for the Lyndoch Public School that opened in 1879. The potential of this superb opportunity is obvious - to renovate the cottage and sub-divide the remaining land, subject to council consent. With three bedrooms, a formal lounge, kitchen/dine and a large cellar the property is deserving of restoration and would certainly reap rewards for its lucky new owner. Together with the opportunity to develop the remaining land.

RUNNING a B&B in the Barossa is a lifestyle choice many would like to make. As a business, this Tanunda property makes sense, with three fully furnished and equipped, self-catering apartments and the room to create a fourth, subject to council consents. That room could be used for the owner’s accommodation, a manager’s residence or a fourth B&B. Either way, there is a lot on offer. Two of the apartments offer family accommodation, with two large bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen and plenty of living space to spread out in - more like a home than an apartment. The third studio apartment, also well equipped, would suit a couple or single occupant. These various options offer both choice and versatility which allow one to meet the requirements of a variety of guests. The property can be sold as a going concern or used as a very spacious, large family home. The location is ideal for either purpose, being in an older, established part of Tanunda, within walking distance of the main street

shops and restaurants. With Tanunda’s reputation as a tourist destination and the Barossa’s busy events calendar, there is always strong demand for quality, affordable accommodation. As a business venture for a young couple or a couple easing their way into retirement one could hit the ground running with bookings available and ready to go.

There is a new galvanized iron tank of 21,600 gallon capacity connected to both mains and the rainwater supply, a spring-fed dam located near to the improvements on the land and a second dam located in the southern portion of the property. On the south western corner, a seven acre pine and gum plantation stands beside the cattle yards and crush. On the property’s western edge, the residence and other improvements are situated, comprising of a machinery shed, cement block workshop with sink area. The timber framed residence, built in the late 1960s, offers four bedrooms, separate lounge, eat-in kitchen and bathroom, with verandahs to the front and back.

Turning in Tanunda TURNING Point Dance is new to the Barossa in 2012, however the school is far from new - in fact it is a well-established and highly regarded school in South Australia. The school’s main studio is in St Jays Recreation Centre in Salisbury, and also holds classes at Clare in the Mid North. Turning Point Dance was founded in 1996 by Michelle Hofmann, the school principal. She said branching out to the Barossa this year was due to a demand in the area which Turning Point Dance was happy to meet. Michelle is a strong believer in bringing a quality dance education to children, not only those within the metropolitan area but also for children who live further a field. Currently classes in the Barossa are for children wishing to study ballet on a weekly basis. This will extend to classes in jazz, tap and contemporary being available when numbers and demand increases. There are so many benefits to be gained from learning to dance: self-confidence, self-esteem, self-discipline, fitness, coordination, grace, poise, and correct posture. Students also learn an appreciation of dance, music and theatre. Results from exams, competitions and auditions provide real evidence the school is maintaining the high standard of dance tuition and it continues to strive to maintain excellence through attention to detail in every aspect.

At a glance... Saturday, April 14 Masterclasses with Valmai Roberts examiner with the Australian Conservatoire of ballet for RAD grades four and above Monday, April 16 - Tanunda Come and Try Dance Ballet for children 18 months and over Ballet and Jazz For children five-years and over

Turning Point Dance has qualified teachers, two recognised ballet curriculums, and exceptional results for exams and competitions as well as a friendly and caring environment. Students from the school have gone on to study at the Australian Ballet School, West Australian Academy of Performing Arts as well as Adelaide’s Bachelor of Dance Course. In 2011 the school had 61 students take their Royal Academy of Dance exam

graded and Vocational graded exam with a 100 per cent pass rate, the majority of students awarded a Distinction. The school has a strong emphasis on teaching all children to achieve their personal best, while strengthening the emotional and physical health of each student. “We offer tuition in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Limber, Pilates, Anatomy, and SACE Dance. Turning Point Dance is holding several workshops this school holidays,” she said.

New Dance School opens in Tanunda Turning Point Dance was established in Salisbury in 1996. The school has rapidly developed to become one of Adelaide's leading dance schools specialising in classical ballet as well as offering students a wide range of classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Limber and Pilates. Dancing aids in achieving a healthy body and mind through regular exercise. Children who exercise regularly have bigger hearts, more muscle mass, less fatty tissue, stronger bones and more flexible joints. Those who dance and keep fit as children are more likely to continue this lifestyle into adulthood. One of the most important things dance does is build confidence. Emotional development in children is as important as the physical development and dancing helps to gain a positive self image and enables the child to become more confident. Children also love to be challenged, they learn that healthy competition encourages them to strive to do their best by practising hard, and they don’t need to win to achieve their best. Tuition is offered to children from 18 months to 3 years in the form of Fairies Galore and More which is a fun and imaginative class of dancing and singing for girls and boys, it also includes interaction and participation with their carer. Following this students take classes on their own, without the help of their carers, as they

begin their formal dance education. Currently we offer classes in our main studio in Salisbury in Ballet RAD & ACB, Tap CSTD, Jazz, Contemporary, Pilates and Body Conditioning. SACE Dance Stage 1 & 2 as well as an Intensive Training Programme for students seriously wanting to pursue a career in dance. We would like to offer all students regardless of talent, age and location a quality training in dance. Bringing together students from not just the northern suburbs of Adelaide but also northern country areas. Dance offers so many great things for children, it promotes coordination, cooperation, musicality, fitness, determination and self discipline. Some will go on and make dance their career, some will continue to dance for fitness and fun while others may gain an appreciation for watching others dance. No matter where students wish to go with their dancing all students deserve a teacher who is trained and can offer a top quality education. All classes will be limited in size and taught be a qualified teacher. Enrolment day will be held Thursday Febuary 2 from 4 pm to 6.00 pm at the Tanunda Soldiers Memorial Hall where classes will be held.

We offer Chris our support as he strives to provide the community with the highest quality service. Congratulations Chris and thank you for your clientele.


Call us on 8522 2633 for a complimentary meeting to discuss how we can help you, or visit our website at 1810198

New clients welcome IN JUST three years Chris Yates has made a name for himself as an outstanding mechanical repairer within the Gawler region. His enthusiasm and dedication to the auto industry has seen the RAA contractor branch out to run his family business, Yates Auto Service. Located at 10a Kelly Road, Willaston, Yates Auto Service is run in the same shed as Willaston Mechanical Repairs, operated by Ken Pearce. Yates Auto Service is open to new customers, including those RAA members who Chris supported during mechanical breakdowns.

FRIENDLY: Chris Yates gets his hands dirty while working on a vehicle.

Chris says many people will remember him as the ‘nice English RAA man’ after he arrived in Gawler from the UK about three years ago. He spent two years as a roadside mechanic contractor with the local RAA. "I now live in the Gawler area with my three children who attend Trinity College," he said. Chris also encourages new people to the area to give him a call and for those commuters who drive to Gawler to catch the train. Chris's dedication to old fashioned customer service means he will meet customers before normal opening times if

required, drop them at the station, then collect them on their return. "I always keep the customer informed and will not carry out any work without first obtaining authorisation," Chris said. "I can service your car while it is still under manufacturers

warranty and if you are still paying main dealer prices for car servicing, ask us for a quote, we could save you hundreds of dollars," he said. Yates Auto Service is open Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm. For more details, contact Chris on 8523 1043.

Out of hours mechanic IT’S business as usual for Willaston Mechanical Repairs, according to owner and trusted mechanic Ken Pearce. However, there's been a slight change with Yate's Auto, run by Chris Yates, now housed in the same building as Willaston Mechanical Repairs. Ken explained both businesses operate separately, and the two businesses under the one roof share running costs, meaning a cut in costs is passed onto their customers. This also means sharing of equipment and knowledge, which gives the customer a wider range of services. Meanwhile, Ken continues to support those people who run on a daily tight work schedule. "With people working long hours, often it is hard to find time to book your car in to be looked at," Ken said. "So I have decided to do some work at night. If people want to contact me, I'm happy to have them drop their car off after work, say four or five o'clock and I'll have it ready for them by nine. "While I'm servicing their car they can head out for a meal, do some shopping or visit friends. "Already I have had some interest so if people contact me I will arrange an evening to do the work." Bookings are essential for out of hours work. Ken Pearce is a true Gawler identity. He was born in the town, did his schooling and played sport for Gawler Central where his brother Les is now the football club president. In 1971 he started his mechanic's apprenticeship at John Doran Motors before branching out with Les to run Pearce Auto Repairs for 22 years. "I decided to take a break several years ago but while in semiretirement had many old customers ask about going back to work so I started Willaston Mechanical Repairs about two years ago,” he said. "I have kept up to speed attending all the schools to learn about modern technology and it is amazing how car engines have changed since I started." Old cars are a passion for Ken who is restoring a 1953 Morris Minor ute which was built before he was born.

TRUSTED:Ken Pearce at work at Willaston Mechanical Repairs.

So if Ken's 'out of hours' services suits or you are looking for a proven mechanic, give him a ring on 0433 641 422 or drop in to Willaston Mechanical Repairs at Lot 10a Kelly Road, Willaston. 1809756

Malcolm Craig came to Kapunda in 2009 from the Swan Valley in WA. He was well known there through his studio/gallery featuring regular workshops and working with the community. The artists say about half of their work on show are new. Mal’s are primarily pastel works, with some acrylic and some 3D wire sculptures. Max’s works are primarily watercolour and pencil and include some acrylics works. There is a wide range of subject matter, including nature studies, buildings and portraits. Both are award winning artists with work in private and public collections. The exhibition will be held at the Kapunda Community Gallery, located above the town library, on the corner of Main and Hill streets, Kapunda. It will be open daily from 10am to 4pm and admission is free.

THE Kapunda Lions Club encourages the public to tuck into tasty barbecue foods this month as they work to raise funds for Australia’s Biggest BBQ. This unique fundraiser provides funds and raises

awareness for the Anti Cancer Foundation and Childhood Cancer Research. According to Dean Parish from Kapunda Lions, the Lions Clubs of Australia is a partner of Australia’s Biggest BBQ, and in the past the Kapunda

group has raised about $5000. The barbecue will be held at Kapunda Hardware Store, Main Street, Kapunda, on the morning of Saturday, April 28. For more details, contact Dean Parish through the Kapunda Lions Club.

Hannah Schultz, of Angaston, was one on April 5.

Teakle’s top 20 Herald football writer Mike Teakle rates the most influential players in the Barossa, Light and Gawler Football Association for the 2012 season which starts on Saturday, April 21.

No 2: Tom Schiller of Tanunda.

No 3: Sam Walton of Willaston.

1. Luke Wells (Tanunda). Automatic choice. ‘Billy’ is without doubt the most influential player in the league. 2.Tom Schiller (Tanunda). After recovering from surgery to repair a niggling ankle injury midway through last year Schiller scorched every opponent both in the midfield and while resting forward. 3. Sam Walton (Willaston). Made the leap from ‘good’ to ‘great’ last season and was justly rewarded with his first Mail medal. 4. Sam Agars (Tanunda). Sam’s ability to control a game from multiple positions gives his team a huge advantage. 5. Craig Gogoll (Nuriootpa). An elite defender, Craig can control games from half back or half forward. The addition of some tall timber at Tigerland should allow him to play solely at centre half back, his best suited role. 6. Joel Campbell (Willaston). Joel is able to find space through the midfield and racks up a ton of possessions. He delivers the ball to his forwards on a platter, and also delivers the hardest fair bump in the competition. 7. Mal Greenwood (Freeling). Mal had an outstanding season in 2011 and should be able to produce a similar effort this season with the burden of coaching lifted from his shoulders.

Numbers against Bulldogs By ROBERT LAIDLAW CENTRAL District lost its first two games of a season for the first time since 1990 in going down by 16 points to West Adelaide in Easter Thursday’s SANFL clash at Richmond. As was the case in the first game against Norwood, the Bulldogs failed to fire up front, with the opposition defence repelling too many forward forays easily. The value of the likes of Daniel Schell and Daniel Havelberg in the past is missing, while the unavailability of Alan Obst for the first half of this season, has left Central with an obvious problem who is going to straighten the Dogs up going into attack? Against West there was a purple patch in the third term, where Central kicked three majors in three minutes, which was the only time it looked like the team of the past decade - but three minutes of great footy is just not good enough, no matter the opponent. Fortunately for the Bulldogs their defence was solid all game and Westies wasted many opportunities, which made for an uninspiring game. After West booted the game’s first two goals, Eddie Sansbury nailed Central’s first, half way through the opening term, while Matthew Westhoff missed a sitter running into an open goal from 40m, when the shot hit the post. At the 20 minute mark of the first quarter West kicked its third major of the period and led 3-2 to 1-2 at the first break. The game should have been put away in the first half of the second term by the Bulldogs, but three straight points before a goal to Justin Hardy still saw Central trail, in spite of having 70 per cent plus of the play. West controlled the final 10

minutes of the half and booted the only other goal of the period to lead 44 to 2-6 at the long break. Much of the first half resembled a rugby maul, which continued early in the third term, until the Dogs hit their straps, with majors to Trent Goodrem, Hardy - a goal of the game snap from a pack in the forward pocket - and Sansbury, to grab an unlikely nine-point lead at the 11 minute mark. Then West dominated with the next five scores, but fortunately the first four were behinds - three from easy shots 25 metres out - to inch one point ahead. The Bulldogs then had their turn at the yips, with three misses in the time on period to go into the final break with a two-point advantage. With two quick goals to open the final stanza, West seemed to take control, with Sansbury’s third major for the Dogs, at the eight minute mark, leaving the game there for the taking, which the home said did, with the next three six-pointers. Late in the contest Paul Thomas ran in to boot a goal to reduce the margin but it was too late, with the team that wanted the win more, winning. Paul Marschall again stood out in defence and demonstrated plenty of poise for a second gamer to be Central’s best. Ryan Williams showed signs he is returning to his best form, while Jarrod Schiller’s courage was a standout, and Luke Barmby made a welcome return to the Dogs. Next Saturday is perhaps the most crucial game Central has played against South Adelaide this millennium, with victory a must if the Bulldogs are to keep in touch with the top four, before welcoming back a host of players over the next month. Lose and Central will be 0-3 with big games against Port Adelaide and the Eagles in coming weeks.

8.Heath Commane (Barossa District). Kicks 70+ goals with regularity, is the most dominant pure forward in the league. 9. Andrew Prior (Tanunda). Has transitioned beautifully from his role as a key defender to being a ‘super utility’ who can move up the field and turn a match with a five minute burst on the ball. 10. Luke Howard (Gawler Central). The Tigers ruckman dominates the air in most games. He’ll need to step up even further in a depleted team. 11. Michael Taylor (Barossa District). ‘Scrubber’s’ kamikaze-style and intensity at the bottom of the pack is unmatched but he’s also an elite ball getter who could go close to collecting the 2012 Schluter medal. 12. Josh Taylor (Willaston). Another ‘super utility’ although his 2012 role could be less varied thanks to key off season signings. He should be a monster across the centreline and a nightmare matchup for opposing coaches. 13. Billy Nichols (Nuriootpa). Has flourished since being given the captaincy. Billy is the key to his team progressing to the finals in 2012. 14.Phil Bennett (Angaston). Big enough to handle any forward, Phil is a typical defensive general who doesn’t give his opponent any room to move.

15. Brad Taylor (Kapunda). The Bomber captain leads from the front every week, is deadly near goal, and can kick inspirational goals at crucial times. 16. Paul Stelzer (Barossa District). Outstanding midfielder/forward who can run all game and provides a crucial link from the clearances - dangerous near the goals. 17. Mark Paget (South Gawler). Put simply, Mark is a beast, the type of ruckman every club would love to get. He returns from a stint at Port Adelaide and if he shows his previous form will carry the Lions out of the cellar. 18. Ryan Bignell (Tanunda). Tanunda’s ball-winning king has more clearances than a Persian rug factory and can play on any line when his team needs. 9. Paul Bova (Gawler Central). The Tigers goal-kicking machine may find it tougher this year with his supply expected to drop but he’s possibly the most efficient forward in the league in terms of marking the passes he gets and converting. Thrives under pressure. 20. Ben Schiller (Tanunda). Stepped out of his brother’s shadow last season to become a truly elite midfielder. Tackles magnificently for his size and has developed into a dangerous forward option.

FOUR: Apprentice jockey Jake Toeroek signifies his four winners at Naracoorte.


APPRENTICE jockey Jake Toeroek may have claimed an Australian record with his four winners at Naracoorte on Sunday, April 1. Several other apprentices have ridden four winners in a day but records indicate none had achieved the feat in their first year of riding. Toeroek, who is apprenticed to Tony McEvoy at Kildalton Park, Angaston, only began riding on October 1 last year. His first day of riding was at the Jamestown Cup meeting and his first winner was the feature race on the McEvoy-trained Sky Raider. His winning tally is now up to 18 with the four at Naracoorte helping rocket him up to 10th place on the SA Jockey’s countryprovincial premiership. Toeroek’s winners at the SouthEast track were popular with punters. His first winner Lionhearted Girl was a $2.50 chance, Aged in Oaks ran the $2.20 favourite, Bredlign started at $2.80 and Foodeater was a $2.50 favourite. “It was certainly a special day,” Toeroek said. “But it helped that all of the winners had plenty of ability and were well placed by their trainers. “I knew I had a good book of rides but to have it all come together for four wins was amazing. “It could have been five as my ride in the first race, Hasta La Shamer, didn’t have a lot of luck

and took a while to get wound up in the home straight.” Toeroek, 17, hails from Birdwood and became a jockey after attending a TAFE course. Trainer Tony McEvoy said he was delighted with the progress Toeroek was making. “Jake was with my stable for more than a year learning the skills before I let him ride in races,” McEvoy said. “He is a good listener and accepts criticism, so he learns from his mistakes. “Stable foreman Warren Hughes is an ex-jockey and with myself having ridden as well we are able to help Jake. “We go through everyone of his rides and ask him to rate his effort with a reason why and then put forward our views.” McEvoy said Toeroek’s reward for his hard work and success would be that he will apply to let him now ride at metropolitan meetings. When apprentice jockeys begin their careers they are only licenced to ride at country and provincial meetings before gaining approval to ride in the city. “I will apply to the stewards to let Jake ride in the city, but for a start will restrict him only to my horses,” McEvoy said. “That way I can restrict his riding to one or two a meeting and ease him into the pressures of metropolitan racing.” Toeroek’s most recent winner was at Clare on Easter Saturday scoring on Hong Kong Missy.

Brett Favre, Glenn Archer, Roger Federer. Any superstitions? Not really. What event has inspired or amazed you? The birth of my second son was an epic labour and Jasmine was such a trooper. Way tougher than anything I will ever, or have ever, done. If you were Prime Minister what issue would you address? Crime. More prisons, harsher sentences. Pet hates on the football oval? Cowards and snipers. Favourite actor and movie? Adam Sandler and movie - Caddyshack. If someone had to play you in a movie who would it be? Chevy Chase.

WNBL star Tess Madgen is on the move. After two strong seasons with the Bendigo Spirit, the dynamic forward has signed with league powerhouse the Bulleen Boomers. Despite winning the Spirit’s MVP award for the second year in a row Tess was disappointed with her season. “I didn’t get better in any way last year,” Tess said. “I want to make it to the level of being in the Opals squad and I think this move will help me achieve that.” A big lure at Bulleen is the first rate coaching panel which includes legendary Olympic coach Tom Maher, fourtime Olympian Michelle Timms and former Adelaide 36ers coach Gary Fox.

“I’ve loved my time at Bendigo but at Bulleen having two full time coaches will give me a chance to work on a lot of aspects of my game,” she said. This season’s runner up, the Boomers boast a talented core including Opals Liz Cambage and Rachel Jarry. The addition of Madgen should propel them into outright favouritism for next season. Meanwhile, Tess’ older brother Ben’s sizzling finish to the 2011/2012 season was capped off at the Sydney Kings awards ceremony. Ben collected the inaugural Laurie Waterson award as clubman of the year. The award recognised the former Williamstown junior’s efforts both on and off the court in the community. WH1808454

> Hockey DESPITE the hockey season being several weeks away the best players in the Barossa and Light will be hitting the pitch in Adelaide next week at the state hockey championships. Under the watchful eye of coach Daniel Wall the squad has been training intensely and has already played three trial matches against premier league teams.


“I’m really happy with the team we’ve got,” Wall said. “The majority is still last season’s team of the year, and it’s going to be a young team and a very fit one as well.” A bonus is having a fully fit Marty Gallasch chomping at the bit to dominate as the goalkeeper, after an injury plagued preseason in 2011. Marty is set for a great season with the all-conquering Nuri men’s A grade side going for its 10th straight title.

> Netball IN A first for Barossa, Light and Gawler netball, a senior coach has been selected to play at the sport’s elite club level. Leigh Waddington, who is coaching Gawler Central, has sat on the bench for the Adelaide Thunderbirds in their opening two games with wins over the Sydney Swifts and reigning premier the Queensland Firebirds. Local netball’s preseason cup will be conducted on Sunday at Lyndoch. Proudly brought to you by: BAROSSA

The recognition highlighted he did everything the Kings’ organisation aspires to achieve. “I’m absolutely thrilled to be honoured with this,” Ben said. “It’s named after a man who has been our team manager for the last 20 years. “It tops the season off nicely. I’m pretty excited the club has resigned Shane Heal as coach for the next two years as he’s given me and the other guards a huge boost in confidence. “I believe he can help us improve, make the playoffs and eventually contend for a title.”

HOOKED: Kimberly Meaney with her winning catch.

By LUBIN PFEIFFER THE ‘Get Some’ salmon challenge was held at Butlers Beach over the weekend with 35 keen anglers attending, many from the Barossa. The aim is to catch the heaviest salmon over the two days and there are also prizes for the biggest nontarget species. The weather was fantastic over the competition and the fish responded with numerous good-sized Australian salmon landed over the duration of the competition. Average size of the fish was just over 1kg. The P Slot cellar group provided the night time entertainment on Saturday and it was a well run event

organised by Kym Weltman and Kain Grocke. Many thanks to Nuriootpa Spot On, the major sponsor, with several surf combos and tackle vouchers up for grabs. A free barbecue was enjoyed by competitors at the weigh in. The winning, and biggest, fish was caught by lady angler Kimberly Meaney who blitzed the field with her 5.84lb salmon. You always need a little luck in comp fishing as this fish was caught just an hour from the finishing time on day two. Second place went to Brett McDonald with a 2.88lb fish, closely followed by 3rd place Kym Weltman with a 2.86lb fish. Tight lines until next week.



Hockey is back

SUCCESS: Marg Dunn celebrates a long putt at Barossa on Saturday.

GOLF KAPUNDA Despite last week being Easter weekend there was a good field for the Sskids Tyres par comp at Kidman Links. In stark contrast to the previous week, scores were very low with just six players making it into the black. Personally I think the nature of the par format lends itself to difficult scoring opportunities on occasions, but that is just my opinion. The best score of the day came from one of the fillies with Dib Strangward having a pretty good +6, well ahead of the next best of +1. With five players just making it into the black it was a five way countback for the major prize. According to our new scoring system within OneGolf it was the lanky Gawlerite Tim Scheer who managed to scoop the prize. The other four were left to fight out the grade prizes and day balls. Andy Peters just pipped Gary Maynard for the B grade and Damian Trotta managed to knock over Geezer in the C grade. Despite what some people think, I believe the par format is more difficult for the lower handicappers and the A grade was won by Greg “Bully” Higgins who managed to finish up square, a great effort considering he pulled up a little worse for wear from the night before. The only other players who managed to stay out of the red were Gary Brushe, Symon Byrne, James Kerrigan and Ian Gawley. I know the format is tough to score but I think with a total of four balls oob Bazz “Willow” Williams was always going to have trouble scoring no matter what the format. He did however have a run of five pars on the trot which helped save the day from a complete disaster. Jayden Higgins had a day he would rather forget with all his luck being bad and the driver just not behaving for him. This week is the monthly medal stroke round and also the culmination of the Paul McCarthy Gold Medal comp. There will be 10 players (two were lucky enough to win two monthly medals) who will compete for this prestigious award. Everyone is aware the subs are now overdue and James would be most appreciative if they could be paid promptly. Good luck to all involved in the Gold Medal final and also to the rest of us making up the numbers. Sskids Tyres Trophy Par: T Scheer +1, D Trotta +1, T Stevens +1, A Peters +1, G Maynard +1, G Brushe 0, G Higgins 0, S Byrne 0, J Kerrigan 0, I Gawley 0, C Bolt -1, J Lindeblad -1, R Bak -1, M Pettigrew -1, B Menzel -1, G Akkerman -1, M Mickan -1, T Holding -1, H Murray -1, J

THE Barossa Valley Hockey Association season starts again on May 5. Players from Nuriootpa, Tanunda, AM United, Gawler, Two Wells, Trinity College and Trinity Hockey Clubs have been busy dusting cobwebs off their sticks to prepare for some healthy competition. This fun, family sport is played on Saturdays at Stockwell Recreation Park and Karbeethan Reserve in Gawler and caters for players from all areas of the Barossa and Light areas, as well as Gawler and Playford. The BVHA caters for all ages and abilities. The “Hookin2Hockey” program is for under nine and under 11 players (from five-years-old up) and allows juniors to learn the sport of hockey on a smaller field with modified rules. This safe and fun environment is ideal for beginners and new players are more than welcome. Hockey is family friendly with some clubs registering three generations of players from one family. The Barossa is one of the strongest regional associations in the state and enter association teams in all age groups in the State Senior Championships (April 14, 15) and the Junior Zone Championships (June 9-11). Last year the combined Barossa/Riverland team were the champions in the under 18 Boys grade, with the Barossa under 15 Boys and under 13 Girls taking runner-up spots. The Senior Championships is a new format this year which puts Barossa teams against some top Adelaide clubs and should bring out the best in both men and women.

Park. From next year Barossa players can learn to play hockey on the same kind of surface as the Olympians and hopefully watch some top notch hockey when visiting teams come to play. New players are welcome at all clubs. Club contact details are available on the website or email the secretary at secretary@barossahockey .com to find out the nearest club. Leagues and divisions: The Barossa Valley Hockey Association has the “Hockin2Hockey” program for under nine and under 11. Junior grades are under 13B/under 14G, under 15B/under16G, under 18. All junior grades are mixed. Seniors consists of A and B grade men and women allowing seniors and juniors who play seniors the option to play at a level that suits them. Favourites to win and why? In the A grade women defending premier Nuriootpa will have to work hard to hold onto their trophy as AM United will be keen to return to top spot. AM United were pipped at the post last year by a hard-working Nuri team who only managed to beat them once - when it counted. There are a few teams stepping up to the A grade this year. Two Wells are reentering the women’s comp after a two-year hiatus and they are welcomed back into what is now a six-team competition. Tanunda, Trinity and Gawler have been busy recruiting new players which should make this competition one to watch. The Nuriootpa A grade men’s team are playing for their 10th consecutive premiership this year Haan, followed by Elaine Kenny and Third were Annie Hatcher and Judy Fechner. During March 10.36 Master Points were accumulated in the club with 31 players achieving some points. Last Monday Bridge Barossa played a four table Howell movement and first were Adelaide Abbott and Miles White with 59.2%, followed by Rhonda Wallace and Jill Allanson 54.9%, Ken Farley and Peter Clark 52.7%, Max Jahn and Evan Allanson 50.3%, Toni Harvey and Hans Haan 48.8%, Joan and Howard Haese 42.9%, Joan Lee and Kevin Jones 41.1%. On Wednesday 32 members turned on a delightful shared lunch followed by the game; after some delicious wine served by mine host Hans Haan.In a sixtable Mitchell movement first NS were visitors from Gawler Peter Janes and Ian Ramsey with 56.3%, followed by Huong Burgermeister and Evan Allanson 54.2%, Helen Farrelly and Toni Harvey 52.9%, Max Jahn and Hans Haan 49.6%, Rhonda Wallace and Jim Hayes 49.2%, Fran Hannan and Ron Male 40%. NS winners were Ken Farley and Peter Clark 54.6%, Elaine Kenny and Alec Harris 54.2%, Annie Hatcher and Judy

which would place them as strong favourites. However, if last year’s grand final was any indication competition will be strong. Nuri was pushed to the limit last year by AM United with extra time and sudden death penalty strokes before being awarded the medallions. It’s set to be a very heated season with pride on the line. AM United, Tanunda, Trinity and Two Wells make up the rest of the men’s A grade sides and some young players coming through the ranks are keen to prove themselves and put an end to Nuriootpa’s record premiership run. Membership Although membership numbers have remained stable over the past few years, the BVHA are looking at ways of sustaining an increase in numbers of the next few years. One of these strategies is the installation of an artificial pitch which is going in next year and is sure to generate some interest from junior and senior players. The Association has also visited all schools in the region and are hoping some of these juniors come out and give hockey a go. What does the grant for a synthetic pitch mean for the association? When will it be put in place? The grant is fantastic news and means the Association can provide a playing surface that is current for its members. The Barossa Association isa one of the last in the state to still be playing grass and is excited about the opportunity to bring its playing surface into line with national standards. The turf will be ready to play on for next season. The program for the 2012 season can be found at the website: Fechner 49.6%, Marg Long and Trish Page 41.2%, Helen Sandow and Ziggy Mentz 40.2%.Supervised play with Lois Wasley, Lorraine and Brian Kahl, Debra and Ron Baker and Carol King enjoyed the day.

Pelicano’s Cup

MIKE Teakle, the Herald’s football expert today lists his 20 most influential players for the 2012 Barossa, Light and Gawler Football Association. They are the players he believes will be the stars of the competition in this season which begins on Saturday, April 21. Turn to page 23 to see if you agree with his assessment. Tanunda ruckman Luke Wells has been a standout in recent seasons. See if he is Teakle’s top pick. Wells (blue top) is pictured playing for the SA Country side against the South Australian Amateur League side at AAMI Stadium on Saturday before the Adelaide Crows - Western Bulldogs clash. The city side ran out 10 point winners in an absorbing contest where Wells had a good game but couldn’t lift his team to a win.

PROMISING staying three-year-old Pelicano (pictured) came of age at Oakbank on Easter Monday with a comprehensive win in the time-honoured $50,000 Coopers Brewery Onkaparinga Cup (2150m). The youngest horse in the event, Pelicano, a $4 chance, thrashed his rivals scoring by three and a half lengths. Trainer Tony McEvoy was delighted with the win. “He finally showed on the racetrack what he’s been showing me at home,” McEvoy said. “Pelicano works in the style of a quality horse but on raceday he has been making mistakes which have stopped him from really showing his ability - even though he had picked up three wins from his five starts before today.” On Easter Monday, Pelicano, beautifully ridden by Matthew Neilson, defied his rivals in the race up the home straight to score comprehensively. “Today he wanted to put himself in the race right from the start,” McEvoy said. “Matthew gave him a great ride and I was delighted with the way he hit the line.” Pelicano will now head towards his major goal this preparation, the $500,000 Centrebet South Australian Derby (2500m) at Morphettville on May 5.
