Barossa’s Lisa Neldner (99.9) Faith Lutheran College THIS 17-year-old, from Tanunda, looks forward to one day designing products. She’s applied for a double degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering and maths and computer science, which will take her five years to complete. “I was a bit unsure at first what I wanted to do and this means I will get to design stuff,” she said. She explained a love of maths and science runs in the family. Lisa owes her high score to consistently working hard from a young age and being given support from her parents and peers at school. To give herself a head start, in Year 11 Lisa completed three Year 12 subjects and then in Year 12 she completed a further three subjects plus the research project. While she also found Year 12 to be easier than Year 11 she did cut back on some of her socialising time and chose to unwind by playing the piano, the viola and reading.

Lisa received merits, a perfect score of 20 out of 20, for maths studies, maths specialist and

physics while in Year 11 and further merits for chemistry and biology in Year 12.

Renae Laubsch (97.35) Kapunda High School ACCORDING to Kapunda High principal Kristen Masters, Renae from Hamilton left no stone unturned while at school. That’s true when you check out the 18-year-old’s hectic schedule for 2011. While focused on subjects in tourism, maths, food and hospitality, a research project and three units of music she also found time to be on several school committees, take on the role as head prefect, play tennis and perform with the Nuriootpa Town Band by playing the saxophone. Renae, who also completed two Year 12 subjects while in Year 11 to help boost her overall score, said in hindsight “it was probably a bit much” but is satisfied with the end result. She believes the reason behind her high score was not just the study in the final year “but the teachers who supported her transition into each year”. In addition she also managed to squeeze in a six-week barista course which she said the final exam fell the same week as her Year 12 exams. Renae said the course will help as she takes a year off from study to head overseas on a working holiday. The year will give her time to consider her university preferences as Renae said, “I’m in two minds as I have not worked out if I want to do journalism coupled with international relations or law”.

SIX years from now Daniel hopes to return to the Barossa to support the people as a general practitioner. He’s already had an interview with Adelaide University to take on a degree in medicine and now waits for the university to accept him. The 18-year-old from Tanunda said he is keen to help others and do this in the Barossa. He received merits for math studies, physics and for his research project, plus the SACE Governor Award, with only 25 awarded statewide. Referring to his time in Year 12, Daniel said, “It was easier than I expected”. To prepare himself for the final exams Daniel would write a summary at the end of the week for each of his subjects and used these for revision. He also took advantage of the practice exams

WET weather conditions have played a major role in a stormwater basin not being completed in Kapunda, a land developer says. Residents at Solomon Street have since highlighted the land, owned by Light Regional Council, as a hazardous spot. They say earlier works resulted in two pits being created, one larger than the other, that do not drain, even in extreme heat. The residents were notified by the council through a letter dated December 23, 2009, about the construction of a stormwater basin. However, in the past two years one resident has contacted the council on several occasions saying the land is a potential breeding ground for mosquitoes and snakes due to overgrown

weeds, and the residents fear a child could drown in the larger pit. According to council, the developer Aqua Reef has an obligation to construct a stormwater detention basin, which is a direct result to accommodate stormwater flows that will stem from the land division proposed adjacent Gundry’s Hill on Maxwell Street. A spokesperson from Aqua Reef confirmed on Friday, “Delays are purely because of the weather and for no other reason”. Council explained the original contractor engaged to undertake the required works in 2009 was replaced by the developer following an inability to undertake the

Wednesday, January 11, 2012 - Page 6 - The Herald, Barossa Valley

required works which in turn lead the developer needing to engage the present contractor. The present contractor was then engaged in early 2011 and has been trying to undertake the works. Aqua Reef has been in contact with council staff over the past six to 12 months regarding the construction of the basin, but say the wet weather has not been favourable for heavy machinery. Aqua Reef will undertake the required works and has advised the contractor is undertaking regular site inspections to determine when works can resume on the land. The developer is optimistic works should be begin in the next few weeks.

FORMER Willaston under 17 premiership footballer James Moss is in the running to be Australia’s next cricket star. Moss is in the final 15 in the Search for a Cricket Superstar show which screens on Wednesday nights on pay television channel Fox 8. The series was launched last Wednesday with 50 players competing under the eye of former Australian captain Alan Border and the list was cut back to 15. Moss, and former Gawler junior and now Northern Districts player Cameron Williams survived. Each week one or two players will be dropped from the group with the eventual winner picking up a contract with his state team for the 2012-2013 season plus a stint at the Australian Cricket Academy in Brisbane. The series was shot in Brisbane over 46 days in September and October. “It was a fantastic experience,” Moss said. “When we started Alan said to expect the unexpected and that is what happened, and the challenge wasn’t always cricket.” With his contractual requirements Moss was unable to disclose any information relating to his stay on the Search for a Cricket Superstar show. “But I can say the show makes for interesting viewing - it was very challenging both physically and mentally.” Moss, 22, is certainly a talented sportsman. He was rookie listed by the Adelaide Crows several years ago but eventually had to retire from football after he was discovered to have a hip disease. “There was no blood flow into my hip area and the bones were grating and it was like I had arthritis.”

TALENTED: James Moss. The disease also meant Moss had to give away wicket keeping in his cricket and he now plays simply as a batsman. Currently he is playing a few games with Stansbury on Yorke Peninsula but intends to step up and try for higher levels next season. Moss went to the Willaston Football Club as a junior because his uncle Robert was a coach at the club and cousin Scott was there. Interestingly, Moss’ father Mick has been appointed coach of the Freeling under 17s for 2012 and his younger brother Hayden is playing for them. “Maybe I can fill in for the seniors for a game or two,” Moss said. But for the present, viewers will have to watch Fox 8 to see just how far Moss can go in the Search for a Cricket Superstar.

Barossa groups voice their views over wind farms According to the state government, the proposed reforms are designed to facilitate further growth in the wind industry in SA. However, in a letter addressed to the DPA committee, the council stated, ‘By its nature, the intent of the DPA contravenes the intent of the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale Protection Districts DPA and Character Preservation (Barossa Valle) Bill 2011. The bill seeks to provide ‘certainty for future investment, balanced with a need to protect the rural landscapes that enhance the special character of the Barossa Valley’. The council also opposes the proposed changes to the public

chronic disease services, dental care and drug and alcohol services. The priorities were identified as part of an integrated approach to planning the most appropriate services for each community. Following the identification of priorities the Taskgroup invited a range of stakeholders with expert knowledge and experience to participate in workshops. At the workshops participants were

asked to describe a model of care for each priority area, identify key enablers, actions and outcomes. Statewide providers, country-wide services, local Aboriginal Health Advisory Committees and Health Advisory Councils will have the opportunity to comment on the draft plan. Members of the Mid North, Yorke and Lower North and Barossa Taskgroup include Dr Jack Urlwin, a general practitioner from

Council defers village decision PROGRESS on the Seppeltsfield Village has been delayed with Light Regional Council (LRC) deferring a decision on the project until this month’s council meeting. LRC was to consider a Statement of Intent (SOI) for the village vision in December and if it should be submitted to Planning Minister John Rau, but elected members deferred that decision to give them more time to look over the document. The SOI details the investigations required, the consultation process and the timeframe of preparing the development plan amendment (DPA) to facilitate the Seppeltsfield Village vision. Concept plans lodged with LRC by Seppeltsfield Estate Trust envision up to 35 winery buildings being re-used to accommodate a variety of activities including coopering, brewing, fine food production, glass blowing and educational facilities for winemaking, viticulture, cooking, music, and other educational activities. Light mayor Bill O’Brien said elected members only received the 19-page SOI the night before the December council meeting and they wanted to have more opportunity to read and think over the document. “It outlines the whole concept of what is being proposed and some of the council members felt they didn’t really have enough time to

absorb that properly,” Mr O’Brien said. “I think the fact we have just won a civic award for process, we are mindful of that and the reasons why we won it. We are thorough and we want to do these things properly. “I think it was probably quite a good move to defer making a decision on the Statement Of Intent until such a time the councilors are quite comfortable with what they are ticking off on, all be it that it is a very initial stage of that Seppeltsfield process.” Mr O’Brien said LRC would be applying similar methods used in the Roseworthy development in regards to community consultation and ensuring everyone could have a say. “We will be looking at that (SOI) pretty carefully and the various elements of what is being proposed and make sure that doesn’t have a negative impact on the neighbours and the region as a whole,” he said. “I think we have got to exercise all the lessons we have learned from the Roseworthy roll-out and apply that to this particular project and development plan amendment, which is exactly what they are endeavouring to do. LRC will now consider submitting the Seppeltsfield SOI to the state government at its meeting on January 24.

Tanunda and John Neal, from Barossa Health Advisory Council. The Taskgroup will consider the feedback and confirm the Final Implementation Plan by the end of March 2012.

WAY TO GO: With locals and visitors seeking new ways to visit Barossa wineries, why not travel by helicopter? A Barossa couple Gillian and David did just that. They decided to beat the recent heat and headed to Simpatico Wines at Kroemer’s Crossing, Tanunda, by Barossa Helicopters for a private tasting. Like Barossa’s many luxury other chauffered services, the helicopter also takes out the hassle of organising a designated driver.

BAROSSA Council will make it clear this month; they do not support the introduction of the statewide wind farms development plan amendment for the area. The council’s senior manager planning services Louis Monteduro will address the Development Policy Advisory committee next Tuesday evening, (January 17) in Adelaide. In October 2011, the state government announced their proposed wind farm reforms that included state councils to be given greater responsibility, plus a dramatic reduction in public consultation over newly proposed wind farms within the state.

HE CLAIMS to have been a Barossa tourist, but chatting with Aussie rock icon Jon English - this month could be his first ever visit. “I’ve been to Adelaide plenty of times and to Gawler, and the Barossa - you know that little village where they make the sauces,” he said. Sorry Jon, that’s Hahndorf ’s Beerenberg, about an hour’s drive from here. Never mind, the Barossa looks forward to his arrival on Saturday, January 21, when he heads The Rock Show at the Barossa Arts and Convention Centre, Tanunda. The star of Jesus Christ Superstar, Against the Wind and the Pirates of Penzance will be bringing a ninepiece troupe of multi-talented young musicians and singers to highlight music from the 60s through to the 70s. The baby boomer first joined the music scene after completing a degree in arts to avoid the army. He fronted the band Sebastian Hardy. “This went on to be famous after I left,” he laughed. A few decades on and Jon continues to maintain his energy level because he enjoys what he does.

“I’ve slowed down a bit and like to be home” at Coffs Harbour with his partner “as there are several flights to Sydney which is only 40 minutes away,” he said. The highlight of his career so far includes performing in Jesus Christ Superstar. “We performed at Memorial Drive, Adelaide, with a performance of the concert style.” Next March will be 40 years since he joined the musical. Jon thinks his love of music comes from his family. His dad was an amateur pianist. “Back then you couldn’t get a real job in music and even when I was a muso it wasn’t seen as a career compared with kids these days. They are so talented and amazing”. The Rock Show will deliver acts such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Kinks, Cream, Bob Dylan, Joe Cocker, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Janis Joplin, Elton John, Mamas and the Papas and AC/DC. “People come along to see me, not really knowing what to expect, but they invariably leave saying they are just blown away by the world class young talent on stage.” For bookings and ticket prices, contact the Barossa Arts and Convention Centre on 8561 4299 or visit

Whistled away to the top end By MIKE TEAKLE RESPECTED Australian Rules football umpire Kristian Whitaker is off to Darwin. The Barossa, Light and Gawler whistler has been appointed Umpiring Development Officer for AFL in the Northern Territory. It is the opportunity of a lifetime for Whitaker and indicates that umpiring in the BL&G can be a pathway to a career in the game. In his role, Kristian will oversee all aspects of umpiring in the territory including travelling to areas such as Gove, Arnhem Land, the Tiwi Islands, Katherine, Tenant Creek and Alice Springs. “It’s going to be a huge challenge but I’m really looking forward to it,” Kristian said. “A couple of months ago I was looking at the careers section on the AFL website and saw the ad. I wasn’t too confident at the time but things fell my way. The feedback I have received from them has been very positive. “The fact I’ve umpired in a high quality competition was a factor but what really surprised and impressed them was a reference from Nobby (BL&GFA president Robin Symes) as they’d never seen an umpire endorsed by a league president before.” The timing couldn’t have been better for Whitaker after finishing

his degree in sports science in 2011 he now has the chance to develop his future in his chosen profession in a role that has the potential to take him anywhere in Australia. “I’m absolutely thrilled for Kristian,” Mr Symes said. “He’s a wonderful young man who has represented this league with distinction over recent years. “I see it as a huge endorsement of the BL&G Umpires Association and their professionalism as a panel, it’s a very good ad for umpiring in the BL&G.” Mr Symes will now have to oversee the appointment of a new coach for the junior umpires, Whitaker’s current role. After six years of umpiring and with nearly 60 A grade games under his belt, Kristian’s first priority will be adapting to the conditions and culture in the top end. He is about to encounter heat and humidity that most South Australians cannot comprehend. “It’s going to be very different but it can’t be worse than a freezing cold day in the mud at places like Williamstown or Angaston,” he said. Even tougher than the conditions will be the immense distances he faces to perform tasks such as school visits. As the major sponsor of the BL&G umpires, the Herald congratulates Kristian on his appointment and wishes him all the best.

In brief... THE National Farmers' Federation (NFF) has heralded the start 2012 calling on all Australians to join with agriculture in celebrating the Australian Year of the Farmer.

National Farmers' Federation president Jock Laurie says 2012 is shaping up to be one of the most positive years on record for Australian farmers. “There has never been a better time to be a farmer,” Mr Laurie said.

The other view I WOULD like to answer Joe Wilkes (Herald, December 21) who uses the Old Testament to decry the evils of homosexual unions. I was raised a Catholic, but chose to leave that faith after an examination of the Bible whose values Mr Wilkes so fervently upholds. If we can accept that the Bible, in its entirety, is the word of God, how can we explain its contradictions? Slavery is condoned in Genesis, Exodus, Luke and Deuteronomy, for example, but Jeremiah, Mark, Matthew and Isaiah are against it. God is supposed to be allknowing and infallible...he would not make such mistakes. If God spoke to all these writers, is it that they interpreted his word differently... and if so, doesn’t that make the entire Bible an unreliable source of his Word? I cannot believe in a book that says “Thou shalt not kill,” on the one hand, but then allows exceptions as long as you’re reading Leviticus, and thus killing gay men, adulterers, thieves (20:13), blasphemers (24:1423),witches (20:27), unchaste daughters of priests (21:9), or children who swear at you (20:9). Will the courts

uphold my decision to smite them? I always thought that the term “papal Army” was an abomination but, apparently, killing “in the name of the Lord” is okay. The problem is that nobody seems certain where to draw the line. People have used passages from the Bible to defend their arguments for centuries. I could go to the Bible now and find passages to support objections against surgery, blood transfusions and plant hybridisation - all of which have saved lives and alleviated the suffering of millions. The genes that Mr Wilkes claims to be so informed about were only discovered by the study of parts excised from the human body... which Leviticus describes as an abomination. Should I also be going into restaurants and asking a person’s religion before throwing their dinner across the room to save them from the abominations of shellfish (11:10), eating an unhooved animal (11:26) or snail (11:30), or from the exile that is the punishment for eating fat or blood (7:23-26)? Leviticus does, however, answer our questions regarding the complete deregulation of immigration by saying we must offer

hospitality to all, regardless of race(19:33-4). Does God really want us not to marry if we’ve had sex, lost our first spouse, or divorced?(21:13)? Would God really discriminate against the disabled by not allowing them to “approach to offer the bread of his God”? Would he really advocate whipping a slave woman a man had had sex with (19:20) or placing a monetary value on human life (27:3) - with women being worth only 50-60 per cent of the value of men? Would he really destroy your soul if you worked on the Sabbath(23:30)? If so, I’d rather not believe in him. I do not mean any disrespect to people of faith, but I do ask Joe Wilkes to think about the fact that the Bible was not written by God, it was written by men, and men make mistakes, misinterpret and are human. How else can he explain the inconsistencies? As a child, I asked my teachers about these, and was told that the Bible is the word of God, and was not to be questioned, only one dared to attempt to explain it, by saying that the Bible was written by men who were trying to interpret the

Word of God. That explained a lot. And my beliefs? I believe in tolerance, kindness and taking responsibility for my own actions. I cannot believe in any faith based on a book which advocates what I consider to be the abominations of sexual discrimination, cruel acts of punishment, murder, slavery and animal sacrifice. Cathy O’Keeffe Nuriootpa Wedding bells I just had to write and tell you what I think of gay marriages. To start with, gay always had the true meaning of the world. In the old days, it was called by a different name, which I won’t put in this letter. Why it was called gay is not right. If these people want to get married, in the eyes of God, it would be wrong. They should marry in a registry office, which would give them the right to be called married. But not take the vows of a man and woman who go there also. What will happen when they want a child and they either adopt or be able to get one by another woman’s fertilised egg?

A new clinically proven, natural* pain relief cream


Food for thought Driving home recently past a well-known Adelaide Hills hotel, I noticed a sign out on their footpath which stated, “My favourite animal is steak”. Being me, I phoned them and said to a man I spoke to that maybe this might be a little offensive to a potential customer who didn’t happen to look upon all animals as food. His answer was that “we don’t want vegetarians here, we’re a steakhouse”. I thought that a little odd as they do have vegetarian options on their menu. He also said that he was a vegetarian and thought the sign was amusing. To the hotel’s credit, they removed the sign. In my opinion, Christmas

does not have to be a carnivorous feast as there are hundreds of delicious other options, some of which one would never guess were meatless. Think about the hybridised, fast-growing broiler turkey or chicken in an artificially-lit shed, crammed in with thousands of others, legs deformed, unable to hold its own weight. It falls, cannot get up, let alone get to the food and water so it dies, is trampled on and cannibalised by the others. This is the reality of what some people are eating, and in my opinion, so-called agribusiness at its worst.

When the child is growing up, what will it think of having two mums or two dads? It’s really cruel for that child. Why can’t gays just live together as they do now? Their only right thing to do is to get a civil ceremony or the registry office and leave the religious part of it right out of it. I feel sorry for these poor sods, who were born like this.

AN EVANSTON woman in her 30s has been reported for abusing the power of attorney of a family member. The woman was reported on Saturday, January 7 on 70 counts of dishonestly exploiting a position of advantage for benefit. Totalling about $20,000, the offences allegedly occurred over several of months while the victim was in hospital. Snr Sgt Martin Kennedy from Nuriootpa police said it was a warning to people to ensure they have someone they can trust as their power of attorney and that it is wise to give a power of attorney to two people rather than one.

Road deaths Firearms find mar holidays at Willaston A 23-YEAR-OLD Williamstown man died in a two-vehicle collision at One Tree Hill on Sunday. He was the passenger in a car which was involved in a crash with a ute at an intersection on One Tree Hill Road just before midday. The driver of the car, a 24-year-old Paralowie man, was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital in a serious but stable condition. It was the first fatal crash in South Australia in 2012. On Christmas Eve last year, another man, a 41-year-old from Birdwood, died when his motorcycle hit a guard rail at Mt Pleasant. The crash occurred just before 9.30am on December 24 on Torrens Valley Road, near the intersection on Black Snake Road between Birdwood and Mt Pleasant. Major crash investigators atended the scene. A total of 103 deaths were recorded on South Australian roads in 2011.

After 13 years as the Herald’s general manager and sales manager, Tony Swan is seeking to further his working career elsewhere.

A 57-YEAR-OLD Willaston man was arrested on Sunday after being found with firearms, drugs and a taser at Willaston on Sunday morning. The man was stopped in a vehicle in the car park of a Willaston Hotel at around 12.20am on Sunday, where Gawler police searched his car. They located a .22 rifle, ammunition, a concealed knife and a torch, which was

found to be a taser upon closer inspection. Police also discovered a small quantity of what is believed to be amphetamine. The man appeared in the Elizabeth Magistrates on Monday. Police ask that anyone who has information about illegal firearms or drugs to contact BankSA Crime Stoppers immediately on 1800 333 000.

Being in the Barossa is exciting at any time but this month we have the Santos Tour Down Under next Friday then the spectacular Valley Hot Rodders Cruise On from January 20 - 23. Normally, we have to wait until the Wednesday to read about those wonderful tourist events. Not in 2012. The Herald will have news and photos from both events online shortly after they happen. Our loyal readers who still prefer to read a hard copy of the paper each week won’t miss out. On Wednesday, with the Herald will be home delivered with expanded coverage of both events. That is the beauty of the new technological age in which we live. Online, the Herald will record the news as it happens but each Wednesday we will still deliver our sought after newspaper.

Real Estate Liftout

Australia’s still raising the real estate roof AUSTRALIAN housing markets displayed a generally resilient performance in 2011, reflecting the inherent security of residential real estate in this country, particularly when compared with housing markets in similar open-market economies. The year was always set to be a period of correction for Australia's housing markets following the unsustainable growth in house prices recorded through 2009 and 2010. Between January 2009 and June 2010, Melbourne's quarterly median house price rose by nearly 30 per cent, with Sydney's up by almost 20 per cent over the same period. All other capitals also recorded big rises in house prices over those 18 months. Housing affordability crashed by the end of 2010, with surging house prices and rising interest rates

combining to send buyers into hibernation. Australian Property Monitors data has revealed that capital city housing markets have generally performed encouragingly in 2011 despite the pressure on housing affordability generated in 2010 and a mixed economic performance in 2011. The national median price for houses over the year to October 2011 fell by just 1 per cent compared with the previous year, with median unit prices rising by 1.2 per cent over the year. The 2011 result follows a 17 per cent rise in the national median house price over the year to October 2010 and a 12.2 per cent rise in the median unit price over the same period. The best capital city performers were Melbourne and Sydney, where annual median house prices rose by 1 per cent. Darwin and Adelaide

house prices were flat and Hobart down 1.5 per cent. The worst performers over the year were Brisbane and Perth, where annual median house prices fell by 3.5 and 4.75 per cent respectively. The unit market clearly outperformed the housing market over the year to October 2011, with Sydney recording median unit price growth of 2 per cent followed by Melbourne and Darwin up by 1 per cent. Brisbane and Perth were again the underperformers, with annual unit prices falling by 1.3 per cent and 3.5 per cent respectively. Bureau of Statistics data confirms the solid performance by Australian housing markets in 2011, with the number of owner-occupier housing loans rising by 2.4 per cent over the 10 months ending October compared with the same period in 2010.

New South Wales was the best performer with an increase of 8 per cent, with Western Australia surprisingly in second place with growth in home loans of 7 per cent over the year, courtesy of a surge in the past three months - indicating perhaps growing late-year momentum in that market. By contrast, the number of home loans approved in Queensland in the year to October fell by 8.4 per cent compared with the same period in 2010. The nature and strength of Australian housing markets in 2011 was always to be determined by the underlying supply and demand characteristics of individual markets and the strength of national and local economies. In addition to the affordability barriers created by the prices surge and interest rate rises of 2009 and

2010, housing markets have had to encounter unexpected headwinds in 2011. The impact of the central Queensland and Brisbane floods was not restricted to the local housing markets. National economic output was affected through reduced coal exports and the cost of the reconstruction levy. Higher prices for fruit and vegetables also affected household budgets nationally. The impact of catastrophic natural disasters on the national psyche and confidence cannot be underestimated, particularly given Australia's recent propensity for financial conservatism, especially when it comes to buying or borrowing.

Hanging gardens VERTICAL gardens can be a striking space saver with environmental benefits. At least as far back as the creation of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon in the ancient world, man has grappled with the idea of growing plants in a vertical direction. But in recent years the idea of the vertical garden, also known as the wall garden, has had a new lease of life around the world. Erwin Taal, a landscape architect and spokesman for the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, says wall gardens are growing in popularity. He ascribes the demand to new products, the need to make the most of space and the environmental benefits, which can include improving air quality and filtering water runoff. Another attraction is the novelty of being able to grow herbs or vegetables on an inside wall - although, Mr Taal notes, care must be taken with fertiliser if the produce is to be eaten. “'People like the idea of a salad bar or a herb wall or something like that, rather than traditional pots or hanging gardens,” he says. Vertical gardens can be as little as one or two square metres, or cover an entire wall or walls. Some systems use planter pots attached to a wall and some use material ''bags'' filled with growing media into which the plants are ''plugged''. “The trick is, whatever way it is, to have sufficient growing media for plants,” Mr Taal says. Ben Cusack, of vertical garden specialist company Lushe, a retailer of the Wallgarden system, says the key to success is matching the plants to the conditions, in which the garden is located such as sun, shade and plant size. “'Small, dense plants work better to provide wall coverage,” he says, and irrigation systems are critical. “'A vertical garden will dry out much faster than pot plants and can need watering every day depending on the conditions,” he says. “So we always recommend to install a dripper system to keep the plants hydrated.”

Steak Night

THIS year the Seppeltsfield Road Business Alliance with Essential Theatre celebrates 10 years of presenting Shakespeare in the Vines. The ongoing event has meant bringing quality and live Shakespeare productions to the picturesque grounds of Seppeltsfield Winery. On January 28 Much Ado About Nothing will be performed. The story After victory at war Don Pedro leads his soldiers including the dashing young Claudio and the clever wordsmith Benedick to the home of Leonato. The soldiers are greeted warmly by Leonato and his charming daughter Hero and consequently invited to stay for the month. Leonato’s witty niece, Beatrice, engages in a merry

war of words with Benedick; both talking a mile a minute, proclaiming their scorn for love, marriage, and each other. In contrast, Claudio and Hero, upon meeting for the first time, are rendered practically speechless by their love for one another and are quickly betrothed. Everyone is convinced Benedick and Beatrice should couple, so a cunning plan to trick them into confessing their love for each other is devised. Meanwhile, the bastard brother of Don Pedro, Don John, devises a meddling plan to trick Claudio into rejecting Hero at the altar accusing her of being unfaithful. The acerbic wit and feisty intelligence of Beatrice and Benedick make them two of Shakespeare’s most irresistible characters. Among the

romance Shakespeare also delights audiences with comical mishaps of the night watchmen, Dogberry and Verges. Come along Shakespeare in the Vines will be held on Saturday, January 28. Tickets are $45 for adults and $20 for children under 18 and those under 12 are free. Strictly no bring your own alcohol or deck chairs, rugs only. Food and wine will be available from 5pm for a 6.30pm performance. Pre-entertainment will be performed by Cloudy. Tickets are limited and are available at Tanunda and Kapunda visitor centres, Seppeltsfield Winery, Whistler Wines, Barossa Valley Estate, Rolf Binder and Hentley Farm, through Craig on 8564 3443 or visit WH1782136

GOLF KAPUNDA Welcome back to the golf for 2012. I trust everyone had an enjoyable and safe Chrissie and New Year. Last Saturday was the first Monthly Medal for the year and it was an interesting day weatherwise at Kidman Links. About half the field of 46 teed off early with the threat of thunderstorms later in the day. As it turned out the wind got up in the morning, the thunderstorms hit right when the pm players were about to hit off then abated to a perfect afternoon for golf. Despite what they may tell you, once again the arvo players got the better of the conditions and the scores reflected that. There were several pretty good scores given the conditions with three players carding nett 69s. The unluckiest was John Sheppard (am starter) who not only lost the countback for the monthly medal but was also pipped for the A grade win. New pres Craig Sutherland scooped the pool with his 83/69 just beating Ian ‘Poppa’ Watson who showed he still has it with 81/69 and a win in the A grade. Daniel Arch must have had the putter working with 80/71 and Joe Ryan, Mick Fiddes, Roger Mottau and Mick Watson all had nett 73s. Despite Mick not playing much over the past couple of months he still managed a 75 off the stick. The B grade was cleaned up by Shane Fiddes also with a respectable 87/73. Not sure what happened to the other B graders as none featured in the ball run down. Mrs Murray’s son Harv snuck home in the C grade with 92/71, just the one shot ahead of Peter Hill and Keith Alexander with nett 72. Graeme Smith continued his good pre-Xmas form with 73. A half dozen fillies ventured out and Inge Smith was the best of them with a very good 99/72. I can’t remember when I last played in a group where the other three players amassed a total of 10 penalty shots between them. I will let you ask Theo, Bob and Al who they all belonged to. I would imagine the “snake tin” will need a clean out after last week’s round judging by the number of 30-

Coaches appointed By GRAHAM FISCHER SENIOR One netball coaches for the 2012 Barossa, Light and Gawler Netball Association have been finalised. Nuriootpa has appointed Robyn March as senior one coach and former senior one player and coach Sarah Smith to head senior two. At Freeling, it is a case of ‘back to the future’ with highlyrespected Lynette Carmichael taking charge. Kapunda has chosen Paul McGrath top take over from Lee Anne Cummins who has taken the senior role with city club Health and Life Phoenix. The appointments follow the announcement last year of club senior two coach Maria Fraser taking the senior one role at Tanunda with the unavailability of Janelle Steinberner through work. Alli Prior, head of the coaching selection panel at Nuriootpa, said the club was delighted to have Robyn and Sarah as their two main senior coaches. “Robyn was an assistant at state league reserves level with Cougars when they won premierships as well as coaching at Adelaide Metro level and Sarah is a great club person who is happy to take the 2s,” Alli said. “Our club registration day is Sunday, January 15 from 11am2pm.”

BUILDING: From left, Freeling’s Toni Oliver, club president Lisa Eichner and senior one coach Lynette Carmichael. Freeling last year established a Development committee to help build the club into the future. Toni Oliver, who was on that committee, said it had been decided that club stalwart Lynette Carmichael was the right person to lead the club’s playing list. Previously having coached in the early 90s and again for one year in 2004, Lynette is keen to develop the young talent. “I’m excited about the season,”

Lynette said. “We had trials in November and pre-season training for the our group starts at the end of month.” Paul McGrath, who has been an umpire in the association recently, put his hand up to take over at Kapunda. Club president Sarah Johnson said Paul would not be the first male to be in charge of the senior one team at the club. “Tony Truscott coached the club to a premiership in the late 1990s,” Sarah said.



Further frustration Barossa and Light cricket By MIKE TEAKLE

BROKEN: Gawler Rangers’ Glen Holland breaks his bat while batting in the Division Seven game against Port Adelaide.

By ROBERT LAIDLAW GAWLER Rangers continued to add further frustration to its season when it lost 5-6 to Goodwood Indians in division three baseball last Saturday. Although playing competitive baseball through most of the season, the Rangers have continually shown they lack that ‘killer’ instinct. And in spite of a fortnight’s break for Christmas, failed to change the status quo in their first game of the new year. The start was promising, when the first three players garnered hits in the top of the first inning, after singles to Dylan Winning and Andre Benjamin, and a long triple by Sam Murphy for three runs. While Goodwood answered with a pair of runs in the bottom of the first, Gawler responded with another two runs in the top of the second frame, thanks to James Parker’s double and two errors. With two bad errors the Rangers gifted Goodwood three runs in the bottom of the second inning for a score of 5-5, with a cricket score looming.

But then the feast became a famine. Both sides’ scoring opportunities dried up, as both teams only managed one hit each the rest of the way. Murphy came on to pitch for Gawler in the third frame and struck the side out, then pitched shut-out ball until the sixth and final inning, when two errors and a hit gifted the Indians with the winning run. This week the Rangers travel to Lockleys for a game against West Torrens. Trailing 4-9, the Rangers B grade team scored five last inning runs to snatch a 9-9 draw with Adelaide in division five baseball. The highlight of Gawler’s late rush was Wayne Jenkins long two-run triple, in a game where all players contributed. Gawler’s division seven side fought hard but lost 8-15 to Port Adelaide, a five-run fourth inning the highlight, with three consecutive hits from Trevor Norley, Thomas Norley and Ben Mayfield driving the push. Paul Casson and Steve Nemeth also collected hits.

Division Three

SCATTERED rain played havoc with local cricket on the weekend with some games being washed out when on the verge of an exciting finish. South Gawler pulled off a nail-biting one run win over Nuriootpa thanks to an overthrow on the final ball of the match which was interupted by rain but the home side got the covers on quickly, allowing for a result. Sandy Creek (8/173) looked set to turn their disappointing season around when they had Gilbert Valley on the ropes (6/145 after 36 overs) before a downpour ended their hopes. Michael Burden was the standout performer with 71 runs for the Cockatoos before taking 3/23 from his seven overs. The game between Angaston (187) and Kapunda, 5/144 after 32.3 overs, could have gone either way before the rain came. Both sides featured half centuries to openers with Kapunda’s Sam Ryan making 52 and Angaston’s Ben Burgess 55. Gawler Central (4/171) easily accounted for Tanunda (77). A reshuffle of the batting order saw Andrew Frackowski drop from opening to number six where he managed just one run but his replcement fared worse with both Tigers openers dismissed without scoring. Fortunately for Cental Aaron King (92) and Jamie McCafferty (47) steadied the ship to build a respectable score. Frackowski redeemed himself by cleaning up the Magpies tail with 3/6 from 2.4 overs. In the A2s, Sandy Creek’s Lee Ratcliffe led the way with 108 not out. He was well supported by Simon Koch 52 not out as the pushed Sandy to 4/226 in their win againstagainst Greenock (82). Angaston tallied 5/214 against Light Pass (7/129) thanks to Daniel Rathjen, 54, and Michael Pech, 75, while Steven Gallasch, 51 not out, couldn’t lift his Light Pass outfit. Nuriootpa’s Jarrod Tregenza collected 52 runs and Jarrod Schiller 70 as the Tigers reached 7/187 beforeholding South Gawler to 9/103.

Central District Football Club supports


Gawler and Kapunda Sportsperson of the week Les Stott - Hamley Bridge

Sports with Graham Fischer and Mike Teakle

Les ‘Chooky’ Stott plays lawn bowls for Hamley Bridge. Where have you played your lawn bowls? Hamley Bridge.

> Lawn Bowls

Who are key players at your club? Barry Smith, Darcy Rex, Mal O’Brien. What is your most important attribute? Concentration and patience and a bit of ability. Who is a character at the club and why? Harry Frencken - humorous sayings, and one of the loud ones. Who is the best player you have played with and against? With John Hill, against John Greenslade, Alf Sandercock. Major influence in your lawn bowls: Max McKenzie. Who are your sporting idols? Barrie Robran, Andrew McLeod and Mark Ricciuto. Any superstitions? Wear the same pants (washed) to bowls every week.

If someone had to play you in a movie who would it be? Tom Mix, an old cowboy actor.

What event has inspired or amazed you? The terrorist attacks in America were unbelievable.

Greatest moment and disappointment? Wedding day, losing my wife.

If you were Prime Minister what issue would you address? Cut perks in half for all retired politicians, take away their gold cards. Pet hates on the lawn bowls rinks? Rowdy bowlers - we have some at Hamley Bridge. Favourite actor and movie? Not a movie watcher.

How would you spend a million dollars? Spread it around my family. What other sport would you love to be the best in the world at and why? Would like to be the best golfer - great pay. If you could have any four people stranded on a deserted island with you who would they be and why? My son (he would keep my spirits up), my daughter (she’s a good cook) and any two of my grandchildren.

THE race for the Division One pennant in Barossa and Light Lawn bowls continues to heat up. Tanunda has grabbed top spot courtesy of their two-shot win at Angaston, combined with Nuri’s shock seven-shot loss to Eudunda. It’s too early to call which teams will even make up the final four but could this be the year Tanunda finally win their first Div One premiership? Fourth-placed Lyndoch’s hopes were dealt a cruel blow over the break with skipper Trevor Noble suffering a serious hand injury in a freak accident. Noble was in the process of coring the green when he reached into the machine to make an adjustment.

The decision proved costly with Noble losing half a finger and receiving extensive injuries as a result. In proof that you can’t keep a good man down Trevor has been spotted practicing left handed and hopes to make his return via Div Three before season end. Sunday saw the B&L association compete against Wooroora, Mid North and Broughton. An undefeated effort by the B&L saw them claim the K S Trengove Shield by a considerable margin.

> Football ANGASTON’S hopes of a quick return to finals action in 2012 have been scuttled with the news that their two best players are leaving to join the Mannum Roos. 1785955

Relationship and employment status: Widower, retired.

> Racing ANGASTON trainer Tony McEvoy was delighted with Little Critter’s barrier draw in Saturday’s $2m Magic Millions Classic at the Gold Coast. The two-year-old came up with barrier five in the field of 21 which includes five emergencies. On Saturday, Little Critter ran second to Lady Colours in a 900m race at the Gold Coast. “I plan to ride him just off the pace on Saturday,” McEvoy said. “From gate five he should be able to sit right on the leaders and with a genuine tempo could outsprint them.” Jim Byrne will ride Little Critter Craig Williams has been booked for Sky Raider in a staying race.

The Bulldogs will see the return of stellar centreman Michael Taylor (Adelaide University) and young utility Nathan Emes (Central District). Big news also that they have signed young sensation Jesse Aish from Norwood. “Having those three guys coming into the group gives us a great amount of flexibility,” Roger James, Barossa coach said. “We’re pretty happy with where we’re at so far”.

CAUGHT: Sani Pfeiffer with a Christmas Eve kingfish.

By LUBIN PFEIFFER WELCOME to 2012 and hope it is a fish-filled year for everyone. The fishing has been red-hot over the Christmas period with most areas both river and seaproducing fish. On the Murray, callop have been taking a variety of lures with vibes with the loudest rattle being my first choice. Fish these close to the snags and quite slowly. All the hot weather has sent the carp towards the surface and many fish can be spotted just by scanning over the water slowly. Pick a stretch that is easy to walk along and take your time, a good pair of Polaroid sunglasses will make this so much easier. I find an 8wt fly rod and white fly to be this fish’s biggest predator. Over on the coast good hauls of squid have coincided with the calmer weather and some of

these have been absolute thumpers in size, once again orange coloured cloth jigs have been the standout performer. Both snapper and kingfish have been on the bite for those who are a bit more patient with their fishing. Kingfish are cruising around in shallower water during the day with snapper in the shallows best targeted at night. The most important aspect to catching these fish is to be prepared. There is no real gun spots for the bigger fish in shallow water because they spend all of their time cruising around. Pick an area where some have been caught in the past and the essential key to capture is to have faith in what and where you’re fishing. The fish will come. Crabs have been on the move in the north of both gulfs and there are some good sized ones among them. Tight lines until next week.

“I was pretty happy with the race,” Ella said. “Especially the run. “I am in the middle of a very heavy four-week training block building towards the world championship qualification event in Geelong in February so it took a while to get the legs going on the bike.” In the month leading up to Sunday’s event, Holmes completed 80km of swimming, 160km of running and 1000km of bike training – including riding 20km to the West Lakes event with fellow Fuse Multisport athlete Sam Tebeck, 17, of Williamstown, and coach Steve O’Brien. “Ella’s run leg is a real strength at the moment and at least as strong as it was in 2009 when she won the World U19 AG Championships,” O’Brien said. The coach said that he also was very pleased with the outstanding performance of junior triathlete Tebeck who finished third in the Male Open category, his first race in that category. Holmes’ next race is the Australia Day Triathlon at West Lakes on January 26.

GAWLER’S Ella Holmes (pictured) has continued her impressive comeback to elite triathlon competition. At West Lakes on Sunday, in blustery conditions, Ella claimed second place in an impressive women’s field in the JT Cycles specialised triathlon. The Gawler star had a closely fought contest throughout with classy rivals Erin Heard and Maria Kosztovitz. Heard led Holmes and Kosztovitz out of the 700 metre swim leg. However the front pair were quickly overtaken by the state Olympic distance champion Kosztovitz on the first lap of the three-lap 19.5km bike course. Holmes lost 1 minute 50 seconds on the leader but still held onto third place entering the 4.8km run leg. In an impressive effort, Holmes overtook Heard and closed the gap on Kosztovitz to just 36 seconds at the finish. Her blistering time of 19 minutes and four seconds for the run was the fastest female split of the event.

James’ goldrush JAMES McKechnie grabbed a six-gold-medal haul at the state age championships last week underpinning his hopes of eventually representing Australia at the Olympics. The 16-year-old Trinity College Year 11 student won the 50m freestyle, took out the 200/400 individual medley double, and scooped all three of the breaststroke races, including his pet event, the 200m. The championships were held at the State Aquatic and Leisure Centre at Marion. “It was a good meet overall, although some of my times were a little off what I was hoping for,” James said. “And to qualify for seven events at the nationals was pleasing, including the 100m butterfly.” McKechnie also won three bronze medals, for the 100m butterfly and the 100/200 freestyle events, and took home a silver for 100m backstroke. Last year the Starplex Swim Club member won a gold medal at the nationals for the 200m breaststroke and a bronze for the 400m individual medley, which earned him a spot at the Australian Institute of Sport for a national youth squad training camp. “In September we trained in Canberra and Thredbo, under some of the country’s top

SUCCESSFUL: James McKechnie with his national medals. McKechnie to do to reach the Olympic qualifying standard for the 200m breaststroke, which is 2.11. The young gun has shown remarkable improvement over the past two years, and currently has a best time of 2.23 for the event, with an aim of reducing it by six seconds before April. “I have the capacity to push myself, and I need to smooth

out the edges, by tweaking my stroke,” James said. “It’s the little things, like improving a lift error and getting more fluid, as well as working on turns.”

coaches, where they help you to harness your skills,” James said. “Then I was invited back for another camp in December with the Australian junior coach Vince Raleigh, which was a great experience. “Just to have the use of their underwater cameras to try to understand technique and how to improve was a great help.” McKechnie holds his age group’s state records for the three breaststroke events (50m, 100m and 200m), which he breaks every time he achieves a personal best. But it is on the bigger stage the ‘super fish’ is hoping to be able to push himself further, to realise his dream of qualifying for the Olympics. In the short term, McKechnie has the state open swimming champs next week, then in March the Olympic trials and Australian Open, with the national age in April. “The main aim for me is not to drop off and to continually see improvements in my results,” James said. “I need to capitalise on my experience with the AIS and with my new coach, Steve Garner, who recently joined our club and is highly credentialled. “Naturally the Olympics is the dream, but it is a long road and it will still be a couple of years before I know whether I’m good enough.” There is plenty of work for
