Kapunda’s Christmas party THE 2011 Kapunda Christmas Street Party attracted a record crowd of more than 2000 on Friday evening. Perfect weather and a huge range of activities drew families into the main street to enjoy the carnival atmosphere and entertainment. Officially opened by Member for Wakefield Nick Champion and Light Regional Council mayor Bill O’Brien, the street party was a hive of activity from 5.30pm until well after sunset. “This year’s event attracted a record number of people and was a resounding success,” said Mr O’Brien. “The Kapunda Christmas Street Party is an important community event and congratulations must go to the energetic group of volunteers on the KCSP Inc committee and our very generous

local sponsors in making it all happen for the families of Kapunda and regions.” The Yellow Brick Road proved very popular with the children, while children and adults alike were keen to see the animals in the petting zoo and at the Animals Anonymous tent where they could get up-close and personal with snakes, lizards and birds. There was also mini-golf, the GymBus, camel rides, a V8 simulator, face painting, car displays, live entertainment and carols. Santa gave the reindeer a rest for the weekend in the lead-up to Christmas and instead of using his sleigh, he made his grand entrance in the local Metropolitan Fire Service truck.

Tower approved but residents hold onto hope A PHONE tower proposed for the edge of Tanunda has been approved by a council development assessment panel. As reported on Thursday on barossaherald.com.au, the decision to approve the application had most of the 50-member gallery storming out of the Light Regional Council (LRC) Development Assessment Panel (DAP) meeting at Hewett Community Centre last Wednesday. The group of Tanunda residents opposing the 28-metre phone tower proposed for a Smythe Road property now awaits the decision of the South Australian Development Assessment Commission (DAC). Development approval is only granted if the DAC concurs with the DAP’s decision. Mike Brooksby, one of the residents opposing the tower, said the group is hoping the DAC refuses the proposal. “If that doesn’t take place and they concur (with) the decision to grant approval, that is when we need to get together as a group to determine how we are going to tackle it,”

Mr Brooksby said. “There have been some discussions about obtaining some professional planning and legal advice to basically ascertain what avenues we have got. “We won’t do anything in regard to that until we know what actually happens at the DAC.” Presiding member of the DAP, Bruce Ballantyne, said the decision was made based on the information in the application, comments from council planners, both written and verbal representations, the development plan and the development act. “The panel certainly was respectful for the importance of the Barossa Valley, its heritage, its importance to tourism, and that was taken into consideration,” he said. “But again, at the end of the day, we have to make a decision that is in accordance with the provisions of the development plan and the act.” The DAC is expected to consider the application in late January, 2012. Visit barossaherald.com.au for the extended version of this story.

Man dies INVESTIGATIONS continue into the circumstances behind the death of a 58-year-old Kapunda employee. The incident occurred at about 5.45pm on Sunday at a stockfeed manufacturing business, where work was underway to process hay. Initial inquiries indicate that the man was struck by a shuttle, which is part of a large complex piece of plant used to rapidly move hay bales across the work area.

The man received serious crush injuries and was taken to Kapunda Hospital, where he later died. SafeWork SA urge workers in farm-related industries to take extreme care around machinery and vehicles as activity continues during the current harvest and into next year’s grape vintage. SafeWork SA acting executive director, Bryan Russell said, “While the most recent farm-related workplace deaths in South Australia have involved vehicles, we also urge the utmost caution be used when working around other plant such as hay balers and in this case, hay shuttles”.

Green light for Roseworthy THE Roseworthy Garden Town plan has been officially endorsed by Light Regional Council (LRC). It is set to make Roseworthy one of the largest developments in Australia with 25,000 homes to be built in the town over the next 30 years. As reported on barossaherald.com.au last week, the plan was passed unanimously at last Tuesday night’s Light Council meeting. The Roseworthy Alliance, which developed the draft concept plan for Roseworthy, has welcomed LRC’s move to support the plan. Alliance chair Martyn Evans said it was an important step in the council’s award-winning planning process and approach to local government. “The Roseworthy Alliance is pleased to be part of Light Regional Council’s planning process to achieve well-managed growth,” he said. “Council’s governance framework and its leadership set this project apart. “A feature of the council’s engagement is the extent to which the community took the time to review and comment on the draft concept plan and provide feedback to council.”

“I am absolutely delighted the council now have taken that step, in a unanimous reponse to the recommendations as well. I think that really says something about it. It says we are extremely comfortable with the concept plan.” - LRC mayor Bill O’Brien Mr Evans said the Roseworthy Alliance is looking forward to the next steps of council’s planning process. “The draft concept plan for Roseworthy Garden Town is the blueprint for future growth,” he said. “We are committed to working with the Light Regional Council as it progresses the draft concept plan into a structure plan.” LRC mayor Bill O’Brien said he was “absolutely delighted” the plan had been supported by council, and with a unanimous decision. “I think that really says something about it. It says we are extremely comfortable with the concept plan,” he said. “Now we take that next step towards the infrastructure plan, which of course is going to probably engender quite considerable debate as we move through all of that as we start to get into the finer detail of things. “To just tick off on something as grand as this is quite extraordinary. “I have no doubt council will want to be thoroughly exploring how that is going to look, but now we are able to proceed, talking with government agencies and departments in relation to major infrastructure requirements like rail and those sort of things. “We have got to make sure the infrastructure is in place before we start building houses otherwise we could find ourselves in a spot of bother.”

YOUR CHRISTMAS MEMORIES START AT OFFICE NATIONAL BAROSSA

Blend of wine and cricket EMPLOYEES from some of the Barossa Valley’s best wineries took to the cricket pitch on Friday for the official launch of Wickets For Wine. The brainchild of Toby Yap (Langmeil Wines), Craig Phillips and Ben Chipman (Rusden Wines), Wickets for Wine is a social Twenty20 cricket competition where winery teams play against each other and raise funds for Movember. Chateau Tanunda cricket ground hosted the official launch on Friday, but the first official Wickets For Wine carnival will be held in November next year.

“Toby and I find it almost physically impossible to grow a moustache so we thought we’d try and raise money for the Movember cause in a different way,” Craig said. “Everyone loves a social game of cricket and when you add wine we thought we might have an event that gets the community together to put a spotlight on the importance of men’s health.” Organisers are hoping for around 10 teams to enter next year’s event with the aim of raising between $15,000 and $25,000 for Movember, which raises funds for men’s health.

Council may fund rural addresses RURAL Barossa ratepayers could be in for a little Christmas saving with council to yesterday consider fully funding the rural addressing system. In November, council decided to provide a partial subsidy for the addressing system following the sale of a block of land at Lyndoch to be used for an ETSA substation. That subsidy was to reduce the cost for landowners from $30 to $20, but council could now foot the entire bill for the cost of the signs and their installation. Barossa Council director of

works and engineering Bim Lange said after the decision to subsidise the addresses, informal discussions had prompted staff to look further into whether council could fully fund the rural addressing system. “The idea was to look a bit further and see if it could be fully funded in council’s existing budget,” Mr Lange said. “We are carrying a little bit of surplus within the existing budget at the moment, we have had some people that have left and we haven’t filled those positions immediately.

“There are other lines that I have looked at within our signage budget, which is general signage, that I think there is an opportunity there to find that bit of extra money. “I think within the operating budget we would be okay to fully subsidise the project.” Rural property addressing is a distance-based numbering system, which advises emergency services, or anyone searching for a property, how far that property is from the start of a road, and on which side the entrance to the property is located.

Family services unite THREE major agencies that support young children and their families are now under the one umbrella. The Department for Children’s Services (DECS), Families SA and Child and Family Health now form the new Department of Education and Child Development. This change was announced in November. According to Minister for Education and Child Development Grace Portolesi, important research by leaders in early childhood like the late Thinker in Residence Dr Fraser Mustard, “underpins the idea behind the new department, which aims to support young children and their families from the moment children are born”. Dr Mustard was a Thinker

in Residence in SA in 2006-07. His perspectives were instrumental in the developing of world leading Children’s Centres for Early Childhood Development and Parenting, the development of the Australian Early Development Index and in creating the structure of the new Department for Education and Child Development. Minister Portolesi said, “We want to give children and their families the best opportunities to succeed and bringing together all these services in one department will help us do that as a government”. She said this new agency brings together the government services that work with children and their families and is a first for Australia.

Fresh new market CELEBRITY chef Simon Bryant will launch the inaugural Mt Pleasant Farmers Market on February 4. Simon, who also appeared on ABC’s The Cook and the Chef series, will use his culinary skills to demonstrate the use of local produce, which he will choose from the market stalls on the day. Simon’s food philosophy is based on the ethics of locally sourced, fresh ingredients. The committee said work is currently being done to ensure there is a fantastic mix of stalls delivering all the essentials including fruit and veg, milk, cheese, eggs, honey, olive oil, meat and seafood, bread and baked goods, hot breakfasts and fresh coffee, jams, preserves, and wine. The market will be held each

week at the town’s showgrounds (Talunga Park) and will be open to noon on Saturdays. A country breakfast and freshly brewed organic coffee will be available for hungry travellers from 8am, and will feature fresh, locally produced ingredients. The market launch and establishment is the culmination of over 18 months of hard work by the Mt Pleasant Natural Resource Centre Inc and its volunteers. Co-ordinator of the Natural Resource Centre Faye McGoldrick, commends the dedication of community volunteers of turning a small idea into a new community business that supports sustainable food production and promotes the importance of a healthy environment to a healthy food chain.

The spirit of giving continues

APPRECIATED: Tears of joy are being shown and hugs are being given by people who have received a Barossa Christmas hamper this month. The donation of non-perishable goods and toys for children are currently being distributed by Lutheran Community Care and their merry band of volunteers. Again this year, more than 200 hampers will be delivered throughout the Barossa and surrounding regions to bring support to those in need. Last week Pastor Len Gerschwitz blessed the hampers before helping the volunteers spend a full day packing the goods. Volunteers packing the hampers are (from left) Ivy Schmaal, Joy Graetz and Jan Jenner.

SUPPORTIVE: Community CPS Gawler thanked the community for their support in raising funds for U Care Gawler’s Christmas hampers. Donations came from Foodland Gawler, IGA Angle Vale, Tim Barkla from Austral Meats, with $300 in cash plus raised and over $300 in donations of food and toys collected. Pictured (back from left) is Chris Vitnell, chief executive officer of U Care Gawler, Richard Carter, branch manager of Community CPS Gawler, Vanessa Sherratt, U Care Gawler administrator, Raelene Benier and lolly winner Anthony Howard with (front) CPS staff Natalie Chaney, Natalie Hahn and Jodie Myers.

Town with a big heart A SMALL Barossa town has managed to enjoy the meaning of Christmas and raise funds for charity. The unique Eden Valley event involved community members walking to various town destinations to become involved in fun festive activities on Sunday, December 11. The afternoon kicked off with a walk from the hotel beer garden to St Petri Church where John Edwards played an organ recital. The recital, ‘Toccata for Eden Valley’, was also composed by John as a Christmas gift to the town. Myriam Bultsma brought a healing touch as she presented the magic of Tibetan singing bowls and flute. The German carol Stille Nacht completed the first part of the walk. CFS members then assisted walkers to Lilliefield Gallery where participants created Christmas community art pieces. Walkers then carried the mosaic Madonna and child and ceramic ornaments they had created to the Eden Valley Institute. The hotel’s social club members of the Tourism & Promotion Group welcomed walkers with a prepared barbecue and drinks stall. Members decided to donate the entire profits of $300 made to David Lillecrapp, representing the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal at Gawler. After a group photograph was taken, the Eden Valley Singing Group and Myriam Bultsma presented Australian Christmas carols and this was followed by coffee and Christmas cake supplied by the members of the institute committee. The final surprise of the day was a group countdown for the festive lighting of the Eden Valley Christmas Star, which will glow throughout the season, atop the institute.

Health-E-Advice for the community with William Khuoc

“I will stop smoking next year” is a common new year resolution that many people find difficult to keep. Understanding the health risks associated with smoking may encourage you to quit.

UP HIGH: Camels were led along the main street for much of the Kapunda Christmas Street Party on Friday night.

M Williams Riverton More on politicians’ pay The Remuneration Tribunal must have thought they were discussing their own salaries when they increased politicians’ pay by such large percentages. The tribunal is about as independent to politician remuneration as the TV is to the remote control. Our Prime Minister will now receive a higher pay than the President of the USA. Assuming the pay rates for both leaders were even, on a percapita basis Australians pay 20 times to the PM as do Americans to their leader. Population of USA 310,000,000, Australia 21,000,000. The President virtually runs the United Nations, the United States and most of the western world. He must walk a tight line to satisfy the Christian lobby, the Jewish lobby, the Pentagon and the CIA. The US economy demands military excursions or invasions

into other countries at least every five or six years. More than 12 per cent of Americans carry guns, and assassination is always a threat to the President. The President is limited to two terms, and the pension is only a fraction of Australian politicians’ pensions. Our PM only has to satisfy a few influential lobbies and follow the USA foreign policy. Tony Beales Gawler East Same-sex marriage SBS News reports that since 2001 ten countries have legalised same-sex marriage, although Australia so far has not. Homosexual unions for both sexes however, are recognised in the ACT, NSW, Victoria, Tasmania and Queensland; this is a first step in the legal process. Homosexual unions of any type or degree are forbidden in God Almighty’s Holy Word with retribution threatened as the outcome. Those who ignore or refute this warning do so at their own peril. The fact that most liberal Christian leaders condone this sin does not annul it; it simply demonstrates their infidelity to Christ, their hypocritical spiritual condition, their desire to avoid persecution and demur to worldly concepts, and their vain opposition to the

Holy Spirit by whose inspiration the Scriptures were compiled. During his short time on earth our Lord Jesus treated the destruction of the cities of Sodom, Gomorrah and nearby towns as factual, thereby upholding the truth that it was a singular example of God’s displeasure against gross sins. The inhabitants of the Cities of the Plain were not annihilated because their genes were wired incorrectly, but because it was a sin against God, since man was made in His image and they were effacing and debasing that sovereign image in a most despicable manner. Modern wizards will say that homosexual persons suffer something akin to sickness and are not to be held accountable for their deviances. But they are wrong. Their genes are wired the same as everyone’s; they simply give vent to their lusts and thus intensify their hatred of God’s wise laws. For this sin they will be held accountable. The Scriptures are true whether you prefer to believe them or not. Mere unbelief does not invalidate God’s eternal Word. The Lord Jesus said to the unbelieving Jews of His day that “the Scriptures cannot be broken” and He was referring to the Old Testament. He also warned people to “remember Lot’s wife” who died near the scene, thus treating her as a factual historical person. And He should know because our Lord Jesus is God, omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. The bulk of modern preachers erase God’s holy attribute of wrath from the pulpit, and maximise His love, presenting Him as a lop-sided caricature. This is sacrilege because it subtracts from the Holy Spirit’s inspiration. But they would rather please men than the God they pretend to serve. They cry up love, goodwill and tolerance and deny God’s sovereign right to exercise his justice and wrath against evil-doers creatures He has created and cared for - and for this minimising they will suffer the maximum: “Whatsoever a man sows, that also shall he reap”. George Whitefield wrote: “As God can send a nation or people no greater blessing than to give them faithful, sincere and upright ministers, so the greatest curse that God can possibly send upon a people in this world is to give them over to blind, unregenerate, carnal, lukewarm and unskilled guides.” When God withdraws his faithful servants from duty that is a curse indeed. That homosexuality is a sin can be simply demonstrated by their hijacking of the beautiful English word gay to use as a euphemistic epithet to whitewash their vile practices and garnish their delusions, but God is not mocked nor are Bible Christians fooled. The ungodly might deceive themselves but not God. It is sin the same as murder is, not a social alternative. Paint over it as much as you will - it is repentance God seeks, not excuses. Never before has such a charming word been harnessed to 1776940

how I feel about them and the way they behave towards us the voters; the people who pay them. It seems politicians think they are a species apart from the rest of us and act accordingly, to their advantage.

such abhorrent service. If the Australian Government legalises homosexual marriages then it can only expect an upsurge in famines, floods, fires, pestilence, exotic diseases and other seemingly “natural” events that will white-ant its economy. God is sovereign of this blighted land along with the rest of the universe He created - He will rebuke this nation and the soil under our feet. As He warned through the prophet Isaiah, He will withdraw from evildoers and let them die in their sins with no possibility of salvation: “Let their collection of idols save them!” He said. B S (Joe) Wilkes Eudunda Christmas comment Each year I look for decorations for my inside Christmas tree and can find baubles and ‘Ho Ho Ho’ stuff. I also look for outside lighting and guess what, all ‘Ho Ho Ho’, Father Christmases and snowmen and reindeer. Tell me, are we celebrating jolly things or are we celebrating Christ’s birth? I am a Christian and find that I cannot express my Christianity with all this false advertising. What is Christmas? It is the celebration of the birth of Christ. Are people afraid of ridicule for stating the real fact? Please, please, if you are not a Christian, what are you celebrating? You Christians out there, let’s get real and tell and show the facts. Edna Klau Kapunda TV drivel For the first time in about 20 years I watched a program on commercial TV. The program was a “crime thriller”, it started 12 minutes late, and ran for 126 minutes. It runs for less than 60 on the ABC. As is expected with this type of thriller, one attempts to pick the villain. At first I thought the man from Bunnings was the murderer, because he was the last to see the victim alive and always carried a “blunt instrument”. My next guess was the AAMI salesman - he seemed too anxious to leave the scene and caused a big accident in so doing. My final guess was Tony Abbott. He always seemed to be close by and often disguised as a tradesman of some sort. He appeared as - butcher, fishmonger, carpenter bricklayer and even arrived driving a truck. It turned out he was an undercover chief inspector and instructed his men to bring Julia Gillard in for questioning. How viewers can put up with constant interruptions to a movie is totally beyond me. Tony Lyons Gawler East

Politicians’ pay REGARDING the pay rise for politicians, news of increases in salary for the PM and federal politicians. According to newspapers, the PM is earning more than the US President. How do you make that out? And don’t tell me that the Remuneration Tribunal is independent. How is it that this can take place when the country seems to be in financial difficulty as is most of the world? When the federal government is slashing spending, increases taxes, cut back on services and jobs and on whatever they can think of. Politicians of all sides will agree with the new increases, as it is the only thing they will agree on when it comes to that, no problem at all. Maybe some perks will be reduced and not before time. There is arrogance in all sides of politics. How can you vote for politicians who rort the system at every opportunity? Plus those allegedly guilty of not filling their tax returns for several years, not respecting road rules and failing to pay fines, overspending on perks, assault etc, claiming anxiety, depression, traumatic experiences etc, you name it. If someone finds my remarks too harsh, I am sorry, but that is

DON’T let thieves steal your Christmas spirit this season, warn South Australia Police. They recommend 12 helpful tips: 1. When shopping online, ensure your computer has up to date internet security software. 2.

Do not let anyone see your PIN and do not carry large amounts of cash.

5. Keep your handbag closed and secured at all times. Place your handbag in your car before loading or unloading shopping. 6. Avoid placing gifts under a Christmas tree that are visible to passers-by. 7. Discarded packaging for electronic or expensive items should be broken down and placed inside your rubbish bin for collection. Don’t leave packaging next to your bin on the street. 8. When leaving an answering machine message avoid advertising that you are away for the Christmas holidays. 9. Ask a friend or trusted neighbour to regularly check your home and collect your mail alternatively organise for Australia Post to hold your mail until you return. 10. When swimming at the beach or pool, do not leave your valuables under your towel; leave your valuables at home or in a secure locker. 11. Don’t leave valuables in cars where they can be easily seen and stolen. While on holiday take all valuables with you when absent from your campsite or holiday home. 12. If you are going out on Christmas Day to see relatives or friends - don’t forget to secure your home and don’t leave presents and valuables in sight. Sadly, thieves don’t take Christmas Day off.

The cause of a crop fire at Shea-oak Log last week remains unknown. It began on the side of Gomersal Road at about 7.30pm on Thursday and headed north-west towards the Sturt Highway before it was brought under control about 9.30pm. Almost 50 hectares of crop was burnt in the blaze, along with trees on the verge of the Sturt Highway. Fire cause investigators were at the scene early on Friday morning, but there is no information on the cause of the blaze.

Best lights are in Nuriootpa

WINNERS: The Mills’ family home at 26 Explorer Parade, Hewett, is a favourite with children, and below, Leanne and Vince welcoming visitors to their display. THE Barossa and surrounding areas Herald’s Christmas Lights Competition winners are Lorrel and Mossie Boehm. Their home at 23 Hatch Street, Nuriootpa (pictured above), was declared the winner by the judges. They will receive $250 thanks to Perry Trade Services. The winners have also been drawn in the Christmas Lights voting competition.

J Fielding from Virginia has won $100 towards a meal at The Clubhouse at Tanunda. Emma Oates from Willaston has won $100 towards a meal at the Prince Albert Hotel. Almost 100 entries were received for the competition. For photos of Christmas lights from around the Gawler and Barossa Valley areas, visit barossaherald.com.au.

Flexible hours to suit all busy lifestyles

Mills light up as winners THE judges have driven around Gawler and the surrounding areas over the past two weeks and have finally come to a decision for the Herald’s Christmas Lights Competition winners. Vince and Leanne Mills’ display at their Hewett home has been judged as the best entry from the Gawler area. The couple lives at 26 Explorer Parade, Hewett, with their 12-month-old daughter Zoe and their display features a beautiful array of Santa’s, reindeer, stars, trees and even a train. Vince said there was ‘a few dollars’ worth of lights in their front yard, but it was all worth it to hear the children’s enjoyment. “The first night this guy pulled up in an old HK Monaro and I wondered what he was doing, the next minute there were these two little hands on the car window and this little head popped up to see the lights,” Vince laughed. “I spent seven hours on the roof putting the wires out, but then you hear the kids pull up (and it is all worth it).

“I’d really like to thank Perry Trade Services for sponsoring the competition and the pubs, The Prince Albert and The Clubhouse, for putting up the prizes for voting.” Leanne said while they skipped last year when Zoe was born, this year they can sit in the house with the curtains and door open so they can see and hear the people come to admire the display. The couple is so committed to their display, they trawl the internet to find good lights to buy, have upgraded most of their displays to LEDs and they have even had to have extra power points put into the garage to power all the lights.

Can I eat carbs at night? Fitness THE old saying goes, "Breakfast for a king, lunch for a prince, dinner for a pauper." But do you need to eat less, particularly carbohydrates at night? Nutritionist Matt O’Neill offers some practical advice. Can I still eat carbohydrates after 6pm? The simple answer is, "Yes you can - just make sure you don't overeat." It's over consumption of food late in the day, or "back-

loading" calories as Ellen Coleman, leading dietitian calls it, which is the likely cause of weight gain related to night-time eating. It's hard to find any conclusive metabolic evidence that carbohydrates or any food eaten at night is more likely to be stored as body fat. Metabolism drops when you are sleeping, but that simply lowers your daily energy expenditure and its 24-hour energy balance

(energy in versus energy out) that really matters for weight gain or loss. For fat loss there appears to be no difference in success between eating three square meals or eating more often as long as total energy intake remains the same. The January 2005 editorial in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN) states, “Simply put, the question of whether there is a health benefit from the consumption of small meals will ultimately depend on how much energy is consumed, as opposed to how often or how regularly one eats.”

Wellbeing with STARplex Fitness Centre manager Paul Pearce

It’s never too early It’s never too early, to start planning for your health in retirement. We often think about planning for retirement by making wise financial decisions but what if your health prevented you living your retirement dream?

DRY NEEDLING! OUR STAFF CAN HELP YOU WITH THE FOLLOWING:

Acupuncture Techniques for Musculoskeletal conditions (muscle/joints)

Are you are investing in your health right now? Ageing well is about your emotional and physical ability to live a longer and healthier life. Chronic health conditions, common in later life, can be related to lifestyle factors, such as a lack of physical activity and poor nutrition. For most of us in our 50s and beyond, weight begins to creep up. Women after menopause, for example, tend to accumulate excess weight around their waist. Over 50s most likely experience joint pain, which may affect their choice of physical

activity. Unfortunately, some may just find this all too difficult and become inactive. COTA, Council on the Ageing, (the peak organisation for older South Australians) offers support to people over 50 and encourages positive ageing through regular attendance in gentle fitness programs, such as Strength for Life at registered venues. Meeting Strength for Life members at STARplex has made me acutely aware of the benefits of positive ageing. To ensure your long term health risks are minimal, remember the basics - varied diet and regular exercise.

Aim to include at least 30 minutes of physical activity on at least five days-per-week otherwise you will need to reduce your energy intake, calories from food. To increase your fitness and wellbeing, be as active as you can throughout the day. If your weight has increased over the years, a loss of as little as 2-3kg can improve your blood pressure, blood glucose levels and cholesterol. Lifestyle risk factors can be reduced, even with the older population. All it takes is commitment and learning new strategies to replace old ones.

Catch up on your nutrition: The evening meal is an opportunity to achieve a balanced diet for that day. For example, if you've gone short on three serves of fruit during the day, aim to have some fruit salad for dessert. Eat a little less of your main dish if needed. If you've missed out on vegetables during the day, make your evening meal vegiebased; a stir fry, vegetable lasagne or a salad. Eat enough to get to bed: Unless you are an athlete or exercising strenuously in bed, you won't need to carbo-load at night. Serve a smaller portion, take the edge off hunger and then get an early night. If you are asleep, you won't feel hungry until morning. Then you can start another day of nutritious eating with a healthy breakfast fit for a king. The old saying still works, but for practical reasons.

Through rustic iron gates and garden arbours, numerous walks radiate out from the homestead, slate paths meander through the myriad of garden rooms that take in the changing hues of all four seasons, magical multi-level pockets with retaining walls, climbing roses, camellias, rhododendrons, jasmine, lilac, hydrangeas, wisteria, ornamental Japanese cherries and wildflower scents that include native honeysuckle and jasmine in this very seasonal garden that never ceases to surprise. A tall tree woodland stands to the garden’s edge and a little bridge crosses over the natural watercourse that feeds into the property’s lake. Enjoy watching ducks and the occasional pelican visit, canoe and fish for rainbow trout in the dawn. Deer, kangaroos and echidnas are regular visitors to this native wonderland that attracts butterflies and abundant birdlife. Birdbaths are dotted throughout the rambling cottage garden, and come late afternoon, quietly sit and watch the blue wrens, honey eaters, robin red breasts, kookaburras and brightly coloured parrots, the property’s constant guests, come down to drink in the cool evening air, an unforgettable experience. The property features a freestanding two room ‘cottage’ or artist’s studio, cellar, two fabulous sheds with storage rooms, multiple roller door accesses with height to suit machinery and caravan storage plus third toilet. ‘Piers Hill’ is an idyllic hidden land, secluded from the outside world, yet within easy commuting reach of Adelaide and nearby Barossa towns, a sanctuary, a resort, a rural retreat and a kingdom of nature that will provide you and your family with the best that this world can offer.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Little Bethany farmhouse

VINEYARD: Create your own special wine on the Bethany property. WITHIN walking distance of Tanunda’s heart and on Bethany’s western edge is this quaint solidbrick residence. Set on almost three-quarters of an acre, it will allow you to live the semiself-sufficient existence you’ve yearned for with its small established orchard, pocket of old vineyard, array of shedding and abundant rainwater storage. A property where you’ll relish the peace and quiet immersed in picturesque surroundings. A good, honest and original example of the retro era, constructed of double-brick and with high ceilings and polished floorboards throughout, the floor-plan of this home provides two generous bedrooms, a separate lounge, large kitchen with original ‘Simpson’ enamelled wood-fired oven, sunroom, family bathroom and laundry with walk through store-room. Through a feature servery window, the sunroom is linked to the kitchen making it an ideal space for everyday dining and the morning cuppa, here glass slides to connect life with the unfolding outdoor space, the orchard, shedding and vineyard beyond. A little sheltered back porch provides the perfect nook to sit quietly and survey the rural scene.

Stepping through the landscape to the rear, you’ll discover a bay leaf and olive tree, almond, walnut, locut, various varieties of orange and apple, mandarin, peach, nectarine, plum, pear and grapefruit. To the right boundary, a series of small garden storage sheds are situated and to the left are two larger sheds, one of these being insulated and ideal for those wishing to dabble in a little winemaking at home. The small Traminer vineyard stands to the rear of this gently sloping block and tall gums frame the boundary from the neighbour’s side. With three rainwater tanks, one for garden use and the others plumbed to the home, there is ample to keep you almost free of mains water use most years. Beneath the tank stand there’s a handy step-down semi-underground cellar and at the end of the long driveway adjacent, the car shelter is situated. Here’s a farmlet to call your own, where you can enjoy your weekends pottering among nature and add your own stamp to the sweet little home, so close to everything yet in your own private haven. Contact David Braunack on 0418 841 349 for further information on this lifestyle offering.

LOUNGE: Relax in the lounge room of the Bethany home which features polished floorboards.

road anywhere in the world and spearheads Holden’s push to become a leader in technology and sustainable motoring. “Volt will make driving more economical, more environmentally-friendly and will fundamentally change the way Australia thinks about alternative transport solutions. “This is the start of something big for Holden and Australia.” Volt can be recharged easily and seamlessly at any standard household power point, and a full charge takes about four hours with the 240V charge station – significantly less than most electric cars currently on the market. If a power socket isn’t convenient, Volt can simply be refuelled with petrol and more than 500km of additional range is available.

footprint and at approximately $2.50 to fully recharge the Volt, it also means significantly reduced running costs. Complementing the battery is a 1.4-litre petrol engine that acts as a generator, that when required recharges the Volt’s battery as you drive. With this unique range-extending mode, Volt is capable of more than 500km before recharging or refuelling is needed. Holden chairman and managing director Mike Devereux said the Holden Volt would be a game changer for Holden and the wider automotive industry in this country. “Volt is the no compromise electric car. It’s electric when you want it and petrol when you need it,” he said. “It’s among the most technologically advanced cars on the

practical form of transport and are better for the environment,” the Lord Mayor said. The Holden Volt represents a fundamental change not just for Holden, but for the entire Australian automotive industry. The world’s first Extended Range Electric Vehicle (EREV), Volt spells the end of range anxiety for electric vehicles and begins a new era of technological leadership for Holden. With its cutting-edge drivetrain, Volt is capable of up to 80km of pure electric driving from its lithium-ion battery – allowing the majority of Australians to complete their daily commute without visiting the petrol station. That means emissions free motoring, a greatly reduced carbon

Navara ST-X 550 the right recipe THE dual cab ute market is certainly burgeoning these days. While most tradies are happy to stick with the budget versions, there are some who are happy to pay a few more dollars and get a few more goodies. Like 550Nm - say hello to the Nissan Navara ST-X 550. The recipe is simple - take a regular Nissan Navara ST-X and swap the 2.5-litre four-cylinder diesel motor for a 3.0-litre, turbocharged V6 diesel. Back it up with a seven-speed automatic, and you’re done. Well, it’s a little bit more involved than that, but you get the idea. Yes, it’s the engine that dominates this car. With 170kW on tap, and a whopping 550Nm to back it up, the Navara ST-X 550 is probably the quickest dual-cab ute on sale today. With its huge torque and all-wheeldrive, the other thing that really impresses is its towing capacity 3000kg. But hang on for a minute; the standard Navara, with its 2.5-litre diesel and 403Nm, manages to tow 3000kg, too. So, for the price difference between the two models what do you get apart from an extra 147Nm?

admin.barossaherald@ruralpress.com

Quite a bit as it turns out. There’s a plastic-lined tray, a satin-black sportsbar with LED brake light, a hard tonneau cover which locks with the central locking, a tinted bonnet protector, front fog lights, headlamp washers, privacy glass, roof rails and, of course, V6 badges. That engine, code-named V9X, is quite different from regular V6s. It uses a 65-degree vee angle, giving enough room to nestle the turbocharger within the banks of the vee. The block is also constructed from compacted graphite iron, which gives a weight advantage over cast iron (which would make the Navara too front-heavy) but is quieter than an a light-weight aluminium block. There’s no doubt the Navara 550 is quick - in fact, it’s likely the quickest dual-cab ute on sale in Australia. Off the road, the Navara 550 is excellent, and it churns through the sand with ease (tyre pressures dropped and VSC off) using its power to push through any boggy situations, with the huge torque keeping the motor from bogging down when in really heavy stuff. Inside, you’re kept comfortable by dual-zone climate control and fairly soft seats.

COMFORT: Christian Siegele from Barossa Nissan tests out a Nissan Navara ST-X 550.

Local Holiday Activities Cheap speed exhilaration Enhance Barossa experience By KYLIE HUGHES THE bitumen slipping beneath you as you’re pressed back in the seatsensations of exhilaration, freedom and performance. Some people have a need for speed. But is there a safe, cost-wise alternative to buying a fast car? According to Ian Williams, president and publicity officer of the Australian Karting Association, the answer is “absolutely, yes”. The answer is karting. According to Ian, entry into the sport ranges from $3000 for a used kart up to

about $8000 for a new one. Those numbers also include personal safety equipment, some tools, club membership and licence fees. In terms of running costs, hobbyists who are content to practice only once or twice a month will spend as little as $500 to $1000 a year. Junior drivers will spend around $1500 a year to race at 15 to 20 local events, and a senior about $2000. “As you get more competitive, your running costs increase with extra practice days and more spare parts for the kart,” Ian said.

Rhys Newman (pictured) is a speed enthusiast who started karting when he was seven-years-old.

Now 16, Rhys has already collected an impressive number of awards and championships. “My dad got me into karting,” says Rhys. “He always dreamed of being an open wheel racer. He spent a few years racing Formula Vee’s before he and mum started a family. “When I was seven, dad got me my own kart and we’ve been having fun together ever since.” When asked how karting compares with other types of motor racing, Rhys replied. “I’ve driven Formula Three cars and I still have to say that you can’t beat karting for cheap thrills. If you’ve never driven a kart, you probably can’t understand how fast and exciting it really is. “When you’re driving at over 100km-an-hour in an open cockpit only a few inches off the ground, it feels like you’re going at 200,” he said.

Plus Barossa Bike Hire has a complete range of child biking options to hire. “With the growth of Barossa Bike Hire we have changed the name to Barossa Bike to encompass hire, tour and shop services.” Karen said visitors to the Barossa were very keen to explore the

Assistant Commissioner Bronwyn Killmier said, “This season police are monitoring 217 people of interest, which includes 29 high risk, 59 significant risk and 129 possible risk. “Police will be making personal contact visits to people of interest according to their assessed risk to the community as well as the weather of the day.” The strict contact regime is designed to disrupt and reduce fire-setting opportunities throughout the season. Police will again this season use the Automatic Number Plate Recognition system. This works by police being able to read vehicle registration number plates as the police vehicle travels along. The camera scans vehicles that pass and captures an image of the number plate. Scanned plates are then validated against a special download of the Nomad Hot List database. Children lighting fires is another issue of concern, with many occasions where police have had to speak to children under the age of 10 in relation to starting fires. “Parents should be aware what their children

are doing at all times and ensure there is no access to matches, aerosol cans and magnifying glasses,” Assistant Commissioner Killmier said. Also, during the 2010- 2011 Fire Danger Season, prescribed equipment and vehicle exhausts caused 116 fires, so landholders are urged to service their equipment/machinery, to help prevent fires on rural properties. Police also remind landholders that fireextinguishing equipment is required to be within the property during any harvesting or related work, and non-compliance will result in a fine. “We are asking everyone to be alert, and anyone who sees anything at all suspicious is asked to call police; please don’t take chance that some else will call.” Penalties under the Act range from a maximum 20-year jail sentence for a deliberately lit fire, to a $315 fine for lighting a fire during the fire danger season. The following is the number of fires caused by prescribed equipment and exhausts for the 2010-2011 Fire Danger Season: • Vehicle exhausts 16 • Harvester/Header 49 • Angle grinder/welders 19 • Ride on mower/lawn mower 16 • Slasher 9, Baler/Bailing machine 5 • Brush cutter 1 • Trash cutter 1 For further information on the bushfire season, visit cfs.sa.gov.au

Christ mas Church Services Guide Answer: La Befana According to tradition before the birth of Jesus the three wise men reached the village where La Befana lived. She put them up for the night because she kept a neat house. The wise men asked her to go with them to find the baby Jesus but she declined because she was busy cleaning the house. She later regretted her decision not to go and set out by herself to find the baby but unfortunately she did not succeed. And now every January 6, which is the last day of the 12

days of Christmas, she goes out and searches for the baby. She brings gifts with her for all the good children and delivers coal to the bad ones.

Who delivers gifts to children in Syria? Answer: The Smallest Camel In Syria, children actually get their gifts on New Year's Day. They are brought by the smallest camel that brought the Wise Men to the baby Jesus. It is traditional for children to leave water and hay outside of a camel's house the night before. In the morning the water and hay is gone, replaced by gifts.

Who is credited with designing the first glass Christmas ball?

Where did the kissing under the mistletoe tradition begin?

Answer: Hans Greiner

Answer: Scandinavia

Hans Greiner was by profession a glass blower who lived in Lauscha, Germany. He and his partner set up their glass shop in 1597. Since he was unable to buy the traditional Christmas tree decorations of nuts, fruit and candy he decided to make glass decorations. Hestarted making his decorations in the shape of fruits and nuts but later expanded them to the customary sphere.

There are a lot of traditions surrounding the mistletoe plant. Mistletoe was traditionally hung in doorways where a young man could claim a kiss if he caught a girl there. He then removed one of the berries from the plant. When the fruit was gone no more kisses could be claimed. It was thought to be unlucky to have the mistletoe touch the ground. Although the berries of the plant are poisonous, mistletoe has long been believed to have supernatural and medicinal powers.

Barossa and Light cricket By MIKE TEAKLE WILD weather played havoc with this week’s round of BLCA cricket. Only two A1 games got underway with the clash of the bottom two sides South Gawler and Gawler Central being called off with the result well and truly in the balance. Batting first, the Lions made a handy 6/166 thanks to strong showings from Danny Kaye (54) and Shaun Lay (29). In reply, Central reached 4/75 before play was abandoned leaving the Lions to rue a missed opportunity. At Kapunda, Sandy Creek compiled 8/184 after several players (Simon Koch 27, Bill Fuller 37, Michael Burden 27, Steve Hands 27 and K Roberts 23) got starts in building a defendable total. Rain intervened with Kapunda sitting on 1/19 and Sandy Creek missing their two opening bowlers, Launce Kent and Ali Crothers, and would have had to make do with part time seamers. One of the few games to register a result was the A3 clash between Sandy Creek Yellow and Sandy Creek Green. The derby turned out to be a non-event though as Matt Cotton 4/10 and his fellow Green bowlers demolished the Yellows for just 31 before cruising to victory with 5/126. In the A4 fixture between Greenock and Nuriootpa it came down to the Schlungers winning with just one over to spare as they chased down Nuri’s 140 with 5/144. Greenock’s Peter Nitschke took 4/30 from his eight overs and while Nuri bowler Arlon Hall’s figures of 4/21 from eight look better on paper it wasn’t enough to secure a win for the Tigers. Greenock number three Michael Obst finished unbeaten on 57 and was well supported by Daniel Lloyd (35) and Leon Keller (21) to claim the win. In A5 action, the top of the ladder clash almost saw top side Angaston upset by Greenock with only the rain saving the Blues who were 4/8 after 3.2 overs chasing Greenock’s 105. A1 Tanunda drew with Angaston. Kapunda 1/19 drew with Sandy Creek 8/184 (M G Burden 37, B N Fuller 37, S Hands 27, S

KAPUNDA Conditions weren’t too bad when the early morning players arrived at Kidman Links for last Saturday’s Ron Turnbull’s Kapunda Foodworks stableford round. Unfortunately these didn’t last long and the wind and rain gradually got worse through the morning only to fine up just as the pm players were teeing off. Although the rain may have eased the wind continued to blow making scoring difficult for those players as well. The decision by Graeme and Inge Smith to spend the morning shopping rather than golfing seemed to pay off, at least for Graeme anyway. For the second time in three weeks he managed to top the field, albeit with a much lower score of 39 points. Maybe this time he will see a more substantial drop in his handicap. The A-graders seemed to score better than the rest of the field and Pete Morrison had the better of the countback with Jamie Lindeblaad. Both finished with creditable 38 point totals, just the one ahead of Mark Pettigrew who was a further shot up on Greg “Bully” Higgins and Ian Clarke. Bully’s chip in eagle on the par 5 10th for a lazy five points certainly helped his cause. The B grade was also a closely contested affair resulting in a threeway countback on 34 points. Jim Wilson was the successful winner ahead of Mick Hennesey and Sal Hambour. Captain Scottie Earle had 33. In the C grade a couple of veterans also squared off in a countback. With one player hitting off in the am and the other at lunchtime it could be said the conditions turned out equally as tough either way. “Sir” Don Kaesler had a welcome return to the winner’s circle ahead of Dave Perry with 35 points. It was a long way back to the rest of the bunch who failed to make 30 points. Of the three fillies who ventured out, Janet made it a memorable day for the Morrisons with her very good 37 points being too good for Inge and Tine. Wednesday’s twilight comp once again attracted almost 50 starters and the ante was raised higher again. This time it was part timer Kelly Lange who managed to clean up with a ‘pb’ of 26 points. The handicapper will put her back in her place for tonight’s run. Giving it a fair crack to catch her was young Kyle Hayter who was the best of the “golfers” on 24 points. Sam Owen seems to be enjoying the walk around hitting a golf ball again and finished up with 23 points of his own. The leading lady was a visitor from the neighbouring plains with Faye Reese scoring a very nice 21 points. Young Will Crockett was the leading junior. Don’t forget tomorrow (Thursday) is the Milton Martin and Greg Jones Ham and Turkey day. A shotgun start is planned for around 9am (I think). Next Saturday there will be a comp for those who want some exercise prior to their Christmas pig out. Rod Fuller will sponsor a 4BBB stableford round for interested parties. If you haven’t already organised a partner, there are generally a few strays around looking for a game. I believe there will also be a clubsponsored stableford comp on the holiday Monday after Christmas.

As this will be the last much read Kapunda golf report before the big fella in the red suit does his rounds, on behalf of the committee and members of Kapunda Golf Club I would like to wish all and sundry a very merry, joyous and safe Christmas and happy and equally safe New Year. All the best until next time. Turnbull Foodworks Trophy stableford competition winner G Smith 39. A grade: P Morrison 38, J Lindeblad 38, M Pettigrew 37, G Higgins 36, I Clark 36, J Higgins 35.

Barossa, Light and Gawler tennis Senior results Division One No matches played. Division Two Tod Street 7-7-74 def by 9-9-86 Willaston. Division Three Willaston Blue 8-8-73 def 8-8-72 Willaston United. On a trying day for playing tennis Willaston Blue recorded the narrowest of wins over Willaston United 8 sets 73 to 8 sets 72. After starting the day off with mixed doubles, which was a well received format change, both teams had won two sets each. After the singles scores were still deadlocked at six sets each, it all came down to the doubles, with both teams winning two sets each. The result was despite the valiant efforts of Willaston United’s mixed double combination Vicki Smith and Garry Townsend winning 7-6 against Jason Rozman and Alanna Mitchell of Willaston Blue.

STRETCH: Adam Soar pitching for Gawler Rangers in Division Five.

By ROBERT LAIDLAW GAWLER Rangers hit a road block in the chase for a top four berth with a 3-9 loss to top Division Three baseball team Kensington, an eightrun push in the rain proving fatal. After conceding a run at the top of the first inning, the Rangers levelled in the bottom half of the frame when lead-off man Dylan Winning singled and scored on Ricky Clark’s hit. Kensington failed to score in the second inning, with Gawler taking control with a pair of runs in response, after James Parker singled and Mark Amphlett walked, both scoring when Winning sacrificed and Andre Benjamin hit. Rain had been threatening all game and in the third inning the skies opened up, with Kensington going on a rampage scoring eight runs. Gawler was able to bat in the bottom half of the third frame, with rain still tumbling down, but was retired in order, with the umpires ending the game on 75 minutes, the minimum time required for an official game. After the Christmas break, Gawler Rangers take on second-placed Goodwood Indians at Goodwood. A six-run first inning laid the foundation of the Rangers 10-0 victory over East Torrens in Division Five baseball. With Dean Richards tying the

Torrens batters up for three innings from the mound and Adam Soar continuing the shut-out through the final two frames, the Rangers were in control throughout the game. The highlight of the first inning was back-to-back doubles from Dave O’Brien and Darren Unger, while Steve Allen batted 1000 on the day with three hits and a walk. Gawler’s C grade side was close without tasting success against East Torrens, losing 5-7 after the Redsox scored all of their runs in the third inning of the five-frame game. Josh Mayfield pitched well in the first two frames and Ben Grima shut Torrens out in the last two innings. The Rangers under 14s lost 5-10 to Golden Grove Central Districts, scoring twice in the first inning and three times in their final at bat. In its worst performance of the season, Gawler’s other under 14 team went down 3-23 to undefeated West Torrens, all three scores coming in the third frame after hits from the Bergen twins, James and Mark. Little League Majors played well with all players contributing with the bat in a 15-2 victory over Woodville, Declan Gillard-Martin hitting his first home run, a threerun shot. The Little League Minors had a strong 10-3 win over Port Adelaide, Jackson Pike pitching a shutout inning and collecting two hits, while Hunter Powell hit a home run.

IT’S FIRE SEASON. Be Prepared!

WITH no significant player departures from last year, Angaston are on the front foot, actively recruiting. The Panthers have signed 184 cm forward/defender Mark Ruwoldt from Glenelg. Ruwoldt was a crucial component of the Tigers’ reserves premiership side in 2011 and with 100 league games under his belt in seven seasons at the Bay his experience will be vital. “We’re pretty happy to get Mark,” Craig Hadden, Angaston coach said. “We’ve got a couple of other guys that we’re talking to at the moment but like all clubs nothing is finalised yet.” At the other end of the scale, the departure lounge at Gawler Central is pretty full with Kirk Heberle and Sean Brading joining Scott Hahn and Casey Thomas as outs. No word yet on new arrivals at Central but stay tuned for updates

early in 2012. Heberle’s exit is a blow to the atmosphere around the league as the colourful utility is one of the true characters in the game. The big fella is heading to Hamley Bridge to take a position as a playing assistant coach with the Bombers in search of a new challenge. “It’s hard to leave Gawler Central but I wanted to do something to reinvigorate myself,” Heberle said. “I’m interested in coaching so it’s a nice entrée into that area. I like the idea of helping build something at a club that’s been down but has the passion to grow. I can’t wait to get started.”

IRRESISTIBLE: Ripping good vibes.

By LUBIN PFEIFFER VIBES are back in vogue with callop on the bite as the Murray River starts to clear a little. Vibes are bib-less lures, that when cast out and allowed to sink will vibrate from side to side and rattle as you wind them in. The callop find their tight shimmy action irresistible and they’re now our go-to lure when hitting the Murray River. I like to buy models that rattle the loudest. On an outing to the river last week good friend Dan Boehm and I were just going to fish with vibes and see how we went. No bait, worms or shrimp. Hopes were high but the problem was we both had only one vibe in our tackle bags and there would be no room for error. Covering a few snags and

only managing the prized recapture of someone’s long lost opera house net I set our sights on a snag that had been producing some good callop for us. No sooner had I dropped the vibe in to the maze of sticks I felt the solid thump of a fish down deep, followed by another and then a third, hooking none I might add. I then made the call that maybe we should move on when Dan suggested we should stay a couple of minutes. It was at this point in time when his vibe was solidly nailed by a callop that steam trained its way back down through the timber, then a bit more, and then further still. Eventually stealing the only vibe he had as Dan said “yep, those vibes work.” Tight lines until next year.

SHOWCASING OUR LOCAL HEROES

Ebony’s medal goal A BRONZE medal playoff loss last season has fuelled a desire within state under 17 softballer Ebony McLean (pictured) to do better next month. The Gawler High School student is looking forward to next year’s national carnival in Tasmania from January 8-15. “Last season we were in Brisbane but the floods affected the games so we played the bronze medal final against Western Australia in Waverley, Victoria, which we lost,” Ebony said. “We will be underrated as we lost quite a few players from last season, but I think we will do better, and will be a medal chance. “Our new coach is Wess Frances, who is the former coach of the Australian schoolgirls team, and everyone has a positive attitude.” Ebony first played softball after representing the SAPSASA state team in year six, and the following season suited up with Giants in the Gawler and District softball competition. Three seasons ago the young gun joined Walkerville in the metropolitan competition and has reaped the benefits, making the under 17 state squad for

the past three years and the team for the second time. Playing mainly third base, Ebony has a good arm and is known for her reliable defence, while she is also a handy hitter. “I enjoy the team aspects of softball and the way everyone works together,” the 15-year-old said. “It’s good the way everyone encourages each other, while the game teaches you some important lessons, like working on skills, anticipating the play and being on time. “My long-term goal is to represent Australia, while in the short term I’m looking to have a good carnival and make the Aussie squad, which will play a USA college team in the Friendship Games later next year.” Although softball takes up a lot of the Year 11 student’s time with travelling, practice and games, she also works part time with Fasta Pasta in Gawler, and is hoping to earn a scholarship to an American college in the future. Two other girls with a local connection in the under 17 state team are former Bluejays player Jess Maslin and Chantelle Humphrys, who played baseball with Gawler Rangers.
