Reason to ride By MIKE TEAKLE FOUR-time Central District premiership player Scott Dutschke is riding for a reason in Friday’s BUPA Challenge Tour. Scott’s uncle Randall Dutschke has been diagnosed with bowel cancer. The BUPA challenge enables the general public to ride the same route as the Santos Tour Down Under professional cyclists on one stage of the event each year. This year it is Stage Four, a 138 kilometre run from Norwood to Dutschke’s home town, Tanunda. As part of the ride, BUPA cyclists have the opportunity to ‘Ride For A Reason’ and raise money for the Cancer Council. “My uncle has been diagnosed with bowel cancer and my cousin Josh and I decided we’d try to raise some money while showing our support for him,” Scott said. “We’re a pretty tight family. “Josh, Randall’s son, has had to move back to Maitland to help with the family business and this ride is my way of helping out. “I’ve always wanted to try a ride like this, now I’ve got the right motivation.” Riding as the Dutschke Duo, Scott and Josh have already raised about $6000. But typical of his relentless approach that has made him a fan favourite with the Bulldogs, he’s keen to remind people they can still donate by going online to the website “It’s gonna be a tough ride but we’ve been training pretty hard at places like Norton

Summit and Menglers Hill. “Combined with pre-season training I think I should be okay.” A serious leg injury wrecked Dutschke’s 2011 season and forced him to sit on the sidelines as Central District went down to the Eagles in the South Australian National Football League grand final. He hopes the extra work on the bike will pay off once the 2012 football season starts. “The leg feels really good at the moment,” he said. “At this stage I’ve got footy training Monday, Wednesday, Friday and training on the bike Tuesdays and Thursdays so it’s been pretty full on.” Combined with starting his own business, Dutschke Construction, means the former Tanunda junior’s life is pretty hectic. The Dutschke Duo are looking forward to arriving in Tanunda on Friday morning with the rest of the challenge riders including Eddy Merckx, the man regarded by many as the greatest cyclist of all time. Central District chief executive officer Kris Grant, is very supportive of Dutschke’s committment. “It doesn’t surprise me at all that’s Scott’s doing this,” Mr Grant said. “He’s extremely community minded and a very sincere person and I’m proud of what he is doing.” Bulldog fans can cheer for Scott and Josh on the route and the person with the best ‘Dutschke Duo’ banner will win a Central District merchandise pack. Send pictures of your banner to to be considered for the prize.

THE Tour Down Under kicked off in Adelaide on the weekend and the Herald has been right behind the event. • News that Gawler cyclist Jack Bobridge would not be competing after a horror race crash in Victoria last week broke on Thursday and let its readers know as soon as it was announced. We have since found out Jack is on the mend and looking toward the future where he will defend his world titles and compete in other major races around the world • The body of a man discovered bashed to death at Kersbrook was also reported on on Thursday, giving online readers the latest news as it happened, in particular the hunt for a possible witness to the crime (see police news on page 14 of this week’s Herald.) • Tanunda’s main street has been undergoing a gradual transformation over the past week in the lead up to it hosting the finish of Stage 4 of the TDU on Friday. Be sure to visit on Friday afternoon to find out who crossed the line first, and to see all the colour, action and excitement from Stage 4. Until then, jump online and check out our cycling stories from this week’s edition of the Herald, along with a gallery full of cycling photos the Herald has taken over the past fortnight.

RIDE FOR A CURE: Plenty of riders, including a handful of Barossa residents, took part in the weekend’s Ride to Cure Diabetes. The annual event, organised by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, kicked off from Jacob’s Creek Visitor Centre, Rowland Flat on Saturday morning. Entrants chose to tackle distances of either 35km, 80km or 160km and to help raise money for Type 1 diabetes research. For more photos, including our Barossa entrants Peter Edwards and Ben Barnes, head to and click on the photo gallery.

New dean appointed Rail closure still THE University of Adelaide has appointed Professor Iain Reid as Executive Dean for the University’s Roseworthy Campus. Professor Reid will commence in the role immediately, with responsibility for the strategic direction at Roseworthy, particularly the School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences, its Veterinary Health Centre and other clinical and commercial activities. He will also lead the campus’s extensive community engagement activities, including the numerous research centres, partners and other key stakeholders. Professor Reid said he was looking forward to a new era at the campus,

home to Australia’s first agricultural college (established in 1883) and acquired by the University of Adelaide in 1991. “I had the privilege of being part of the team involved in the first feasibility study for the Vet School,” he said. “It is a much-needed facility and area of scholarship, and combined with the ongoing animal and agricultural sciences study, it has reinvigorated Roseworthy.” Most recently, Professor Reid has overseen the next stage of development of the School of Animal of Veterinary Sciences, including the plans for a new $10 million Equine Health Centre.

THE temporary closure of the Gawler train line continues to hurt Penrice. Instead of its daily rail service, the company is forced to use road freight to take limestone from Angaston to Adelaide. To date, chemical production losses stand at $2.5million, with the total cost to Penrice expected to be about $4million. Road freight damages limestone, causing it to burn differently in the chemical production process, but the company has been able to control this damage. Works on the rail line remain on schedule and the Gawler line is expected to re-open at the end of March, allowing Penrice to resume its rail service. Penrice has been in extensive discussions with the state government seeking compensation and support with regard to the financial impacts of this project, but to date these discussions have not been fruitful.

Jack’s cycle track




Work begins on Tanunda to Gawler link


ALL Laundry Products including washing machines

& clothes dryers


NAMED: Kahl Bobridge, father and manager of Evanston cycling star Jack, with Member for Wakefield Nick Champion at the turning of the sod for the Jack Bobridge Track. CYCLISTS had better hope the Jack Bobridge Track turns out a bit smoother than Jack’s start to 2012. Bobridge was set to ride in this year’s Tour Down Under, but as reported last Thursday on, the 22-year-old had to withdraw after a crash in the National Road race titles in Victoria last Tuesday. Jack was also unable to attend the sod-turning ceremony of the shared cycling and walking path to link Tanunda and Gawler, which has been named in his honour. Kahl Bobridge, Jack’s father and manager, was at the ceremony and said Jack was extremely honoured and humbled to have the new track named after him. Bobridge said his son had been cleared of any broken bones from the crash, but was still suffering ligament damage and is now focusing on keeping his fitness. “He has got a lot coming up, he has the Australian track titles and within a week of that he has to fly to London for the World Cup, then he will come back and prepare for the world titles in early April, where he will defend his two world titles,” Bobridge snr said. “He is very disappointed he couldn’t ride in the tour and he would have loved to be here today. “This is where he first started training and basically grew up in his older years, so he was a bit disappointed, but he is tough and he will get over it.

“I am sure he will be back for the opening when the track is finished.” From Tanunda, the track goes past Jacobs Creek Visitor Centre, through Rowland Flat and Lyndoch, and from there it follows the rail corridor towards Gawler, before joining up with the Tapa Pariara (Gawler Urban Rivers shared path). The track will cost $5.44million to build, with $4.81million of that coming from the Federal Government. Member for Wakefield Nick Champion said the path would not only be good for local people, but also become another draw card for tourism in the region. “Ultimately, if we can get some big loops around the local area, that will be a big benefit not just to locals getting out on their bikes, but also to regional tourism, which is really a big economic driver,” Mr Champion said. Barossa mayor Brian Hurn said the track will encourage cyclists to visit and stay in Gawler, the Barossa Valley and other places along the extended cycleway. “It will provide a tremendous platform for new investment in experiences including food and wine tourism facilities along the way,” he said. Mr Hurn said the Barossa will soon be recognised as one of Australia’s most cycle friendly regions. The Jack Bobridge Track is set to be completed by December this year.

Road link works begin

OVERGROWN: Nuriootpa High School grew a miniature forrest of Poplar trees during the school break, however the school says their removal is on track. According to principal Ian Tooley, the growth is the result of the removal of 10 large Poplar trees. The school is currently working with a contractor to poison the unwanted plants. He said plans are still on track to replant 10 native trees in honour of the 10 fallen soldiers who attended the school. The tree planting ceremony will take place as part of an official Anzac service in April.

INITIAL works have begun on a road link to cater for expected growth in Gawler East. The works will determine the preferred corridor for the road to be built between Potts Road at Evanston Park and land owned at Gawler East by Lend Lease. Springwood, the Lend Lease development at Gawler East, was officially opened in November last year. It is expected the development will see up to 2500 homes built on 219 hectares over the next ten years. Transport minister Patrick Conlon said the works will include engineering surveys, environmental investigations and geotechnical works that will decide the most feasible route. “Once constructed this road link would greatly assist in catering for expected future housing growth in the booming Gawler East area,” he said. “Officers from the Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure, in conjunction with

the Town of Gawler, will carry out the preliminary site investigation works over coming months. “The investigations will occur within State Government-owned land and some privately owned land between Potts Road, and the land currently held by Lend Lease, bordering Calton Road.” Member for Light Tony Piccolo said the link road would not only serve the new Gawler East development, but also help reduce through traffic from the east. “The link road is a critical piece of infrastructure that will help the town manage its growth,” Mr Piccolo said. “After 35 years of talk it is great to see concrete steps taking place to ensure the road is built.” Mr Piccolo had been a strong advocate building the road, successfully lobbying to have built sooner than originally planned in the development plan amendment (DPA). Preliminary site investigations are likely to continue over the next six months.

Signs point to Gawler SIGNAGE on the Northern Expressway (NEXY) will be improved to help drivers find their way to Gawler. New signs will be erected at Gepps Cross indicating Gawler can be reached via both Main North and Port Wakefield Roads, while another ‘assurance’ sign will be installed on Port Wakefield Road to inform drivers they are heading the right way. A reassurance sign will also be placed on the NEXY after the Two Wells Road turnoff, while for drivers that do take the Two Wells Road turnoff will see another sign pointing them towards Gawler. New signs on the NEXY before the Horrocks Highway turnoff at Gawler Belt will also point drivers towards Gawler via Redbanks Road. Member for Light Tony Piccolo said

he had received complaints from residents that new or irregular users of NEXY were confused about where to exit the expressway in order to enter the different parts of Gawler. Mr Piccolo had also received numerous representations from Gawler councillor, Brian Thom on behalf of residents. The issue was then referred to the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure early last year, which has now decided to make the changes. Mr Piccolo said he hoped that additional signage would help visitors to Gawler take the correct exit and not confuse tourists who may then bypass the town. The signs are expected to be installed at the end of February.

Mooving message For two of the five girls chosen for the conference, Hollie Coleman and Katelyn Heinrich, they say last year’s experience was rewarding. Hollie explained how her interest in agriculture was low until becoming involved in the program. She now looks forward to speaking at the conference, which she said, “will be good for my confidence”. Katelyn said, “I learned a little bit more about the industry and it’s more than just milking”. While both students live on farms, they agreed the program has opened their eyes to consider careers within agriculture. All five students continue to stand by their message over the current pricing of milk. During their short presentation they use role-playing to highlight low costs in the supermarket mean dairy farmers lose out, which they feel applies pressure to Australia’s dairy industry. Ms Becker said thanks to the generosity of DairySA and Lion, her and the students’ flights and accommodation are now paid for. The students have also organised a barbecue tea preview to screen their work for their teachers and parents and sponsors before heading off on February 21. Cows Create Careers • DairyAustralia says as a result of the program students, teachers and parents are more aware of career opportunities in the dairy industry. • More students enter a dairy education path and dairy career. • Farmers and industry professionals develop their communication and mentoring skills. • The industry builds a network and promotes better career decisionmaking by students.

THESE girls (right) feel Australian dairy farmers are being milked. The Faith Lutheran College students, who begin Year 9 this year, say cows’ milk should be sold at $3 a litre in supermarkets to support the dairy industry. They will share their message when they head to Victoria in February to participate in the Australian Dairy Conference. With only just a few days before Christmas to prepare for the trip, the students worked in their own time to produce a spiel for 30 seconds to introduce their homemade 60-second video footage to back their claims. Faith agriculture teacher Tracy Becker said the students have shown great enthusiasm willingly attending school in their holiday break. She explained the school is the only one in the state to represent the state at the conference after ranking well in the nationally run Cows Create Careers program. Cows Create Careers is a Dairy Australia and Regional Development Program targeted at secondary students from Years 7 to 11. For the past few years Faith school has involved Year 8 students by way of using terms two and three for students to learn about the dairy industry, which involves caring for calves and working with dairy farmers such as Jamie Nietschke from Koonunga. Students were rostered to help feed four calves, provided to the school by Mr Nietschke, during recess and after school from Monday to Friday. Students then shared their newly learnt experiences and demonstrated what they have learnt by presenting a data show and a research poster.

Training support for our job seekers


BAROSSA job seekers have a chance to secure one of 120 training spots to boost their skills. The training places, worth about $119,000, are the result of a strong response to a call for applications through the final round of the federal government funded Productivity Places Program. The main industry sectors to benefit in the Barossa region through this final round include Business and Financial Services; Wholesale, Retail and Personal Services, and Health and Community Services. This allocation will fund 74 nationally endorsed training places for job seekers at Certificate II level, 48 at Certificate III, and six at Certificate IV in the Barossa region. Training will go towards a range of qualifications that are in demand in the Barossa area including Certificate II in Business and Certificate III courses in Aged Care and Business Administration. The Productivity Places Program aims to help job seekers enter the labour

market with skills and qualifications that are in high demand by industry. The program for job seekers is designed to help people experiencing difficulties entering or staying in the workforce to participate in learning and work. Allocations are guided by the recommendations of the Training and Skills Commission, the Economic Development Board and current labour market circumstances. The Department of Further Education, Employment, Science and Technology (DFEEST) anticipates a list of available courses, eligibility criteria, locations and training providers will be available on mid to late January 2012. DFEEST is taking contact details of job seekers and adding them to their contact list and will notify those on the list when the first available courses appear online.

FULL LOCK: Tim Bichard and Dale Knights (left) get the first taste of Kapunda’s Dutton Raceway on Saturday. THE South Australian Long Track Championships will bring Kapunda’s Dutton Raceway alive with high-speed motorbike action this Sunday, January 22. Hosted by Northern Track Promotions in co-operation with the Kapunda Harness Racing Club, the event is expected to attract a strong crowd to the town. The championships were not held last year when a venue could not be secured, but organisers are hoping that if 2012 proves to be a success, it could become a regular event in Kapunda. Another drawcard is that several riders from the Australian Solo Speedway Championship, held in Adelaide on Saturday night, who will also be racing at the Kapunda meeting. One of the major highlights is the 1100cc Long Track Sidecar

Championship, which is headlined by two-time world champion Mick Headland, his son Trent Headland, and brothers Mark and Justin Plaisted. Sidecar rider Tim Bichard said riders were reaching speeds of 165km/h at Whyalla at the last championships and with Kapunda being a bigger circuit, spectators can expect to see even higher speeds. “They haven’t held (the championships) for two years so people are itching to get out here,” he said. It is not just about the motorcycles at Kapunda though, with range of classic speedway vehicles that competed at Point Pass in the 1960s and 1970s on display. These include the Three Quarter Midgets (TQs) or Flying Fleas as they were sometimes known, which were

scaled down race cars powered by 500cc motorcycle engines. While the TQs will not be racing at Kapunda, they will provide plenty of good memories for those people who witnessed them in action at the country venues like Point Pass, Renmark, Peterborough, Jamestown and Murray Bridge. Gates open at the Kapunda Harness Racing Club’s Dutton Raceway at 8am, on January 22, with practice to start at 10am and racing to begin straight after practice The meeting will finish by about 5.30pm and is an affordable day out for everyone. Adult entry is $20, concession $15, children aged 5-12 are $10, children under five are free, while a family pass (two adults and two children) is $60. Programmes are available for $5.

Become updated on layout changes THE community is encouraged to view updated layouts of the proposed wind farm at Keyneton. Developer, Pacific Hydro from Victoria will run two information stands later this month. Changes involve the reduction in the number of turbines from 57 to 42. Hydro Pacific general manager Lane Crockett said the company remains committed to working with community members to achieve the best outcomes for the local region. “Our community engagement co-ordinator will be visiting the local area to host an information stand to discuss any issues, concerns or answer queries that people may continue to have about the proposed wind farm,” he said. Information stands will be held on Monday, January 23 at the committee room of the Barossa Council, Nuriootpa, from 12.30pm to 5pm and Wednesday, January 25 at Cambrai Community Library from 9.30am to 2pm. The public is encouraged to visit these locations during those times to discuss any questions that they may have. Changes to the Keyneton wind farm proposal also include changes to the access routes, which involve not using the Angaston to Sedan Road for over dimensional vehicles.

“The changes to the layout, number of turbines, access routes and other factors have all followed community consultation and the issues and concerns for local people,” Mr Crockett said. “We are providing the information stands to keep communication channels open and to ensure that we do cover all issues and where possible alleviate any concerns regarding noise, flora and fauna and the use of local roads. We also want to be able to identify any particular issues that have yet to be raised.” At the information stands, updated visual amenity maps, traffic maps and other information relating to this new layout will be available. If you are unable to make these times due to work or other commitments, Tuesday, January 24, has also been set aside for individual appointments. To make another time phone 03 8621 6428. Meanwhile, Pacific Hydro, which is yet to lodge their development application, explained submissions on the proposed statewide wind farms development plan amendment were heard yesterday (Tuesday) in Adelaide after the Herald went to print. Verbal submissions were also heard from representatives including the Barossa Council who do not support the introduction of the DPA.

Help prevent suicides MAKE a difference and have your say on the new draft Suicide Prevention Strategy. The state government and SA Health have developed the collaborative strategy to encompass different departments, officials, experts, consumers, carers, charities and other non-government organisations to raise awareness of prevention services. The strategy will also outline common risk factors for suicide and focus on training and research as well as the evaluation of existing programs. Executive director of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Derek Wright said, “Suicide is heartbreaking and

complex, not only for families and friends, but for communities too. “We are developing a Suicide Prevention Strategy that will involve communities in creating awareness of risk factors and taking steps for prevention and intervention. The risk factors for suicide are varied and many are outside of the control of the health sector, which is why the strategy also relies on nongovernment organisations and community groups that provide services to vulnerable groups. The strategy also seeks to improve understanding of suicide through research and evaluation of other

prevention programs, and to provide quality training to suicide prevention services. “In the past two decades, the rate of suicide in South Australia has shown an overall downward trend, and this strategy is a way to continue that trend.” Support and information services are available through Beyond Blue 1300 22 4636 and Lifeline 131 114 and the 24-hour Emergency & Crisis Intervention Line 131 465. The draft of the South Australian Suicide Prevention Strategy is available online at and is open for public consultation until the end of February.

Around the world in the Barossa A UNIQUE sport has gained ground in the Barossa Valley this summer, with a group of soaring pilots expected to cover a total flight distance that would reach around the world. The pilots have been based at Stonefield airfield,which is home to a new soaring operation, called Fly Down Under (FDU). It operates from early November to the end of February, and while this is the first season FDU has been in the air, it has already reached lofty heights. This summer, three pilots have flown more than 1000 kilometres on a single flight, spending up to nine hours flying around the state without a motor. Konrad Maierhofer, founder of Fly Down Under, said the group is aiming to reach the milestone of equalling the world’s circumference in the coming weeks. “The aim of soaring a total distance of more than 40,000 kilometres from Stonefield airfield, before the end of February would be a great achievement for Fly Down Under, the Barossa area, and South Australia,” Mr Maierhofer said. These gliders are fully-fledged planes made from fibreglass or carbon fibre

that act just like normal planes, except they don’t have a motor, and they don’t even require wind. Instead, once they have been towed into the air by a powered plane, the pilot finds currents of warm air in updrafts and uses these ‘thermals’ to stay aloft. South Australian skies are perfect for gliding, and gliders can easily reach altitudes of more than 10,000 feet. This weekend FDU is hosting an open day at Stonefield airfield to show the public more about the sport of soaring. People will have the opportunity to get close-up with some of the world’s biggest and best-performing sailplanes and motor gliders. With free entry, they can learn about the soaring technology, the skill of silently soaring in the air for hours, talk to experienced German and Australian pilots, or even let one of the instructors take them for a ride. Visitors can even enjoy a barbecue and try special German delicacies while watching amazing aerobatic gliding displays, and hearing stories about this exciting sport. The soaring open day is free to enter and will be held at Stonefield airfield this Sunday, January 22, from 10am.

Community concern IT SEEMS to me that a lot of people are suffering with coughs. On looking in Google and asking for what is causing it, I have had my queries satisfied. I have seen for months now, chem trails in the sky coming from planes, and after these trails are up there for half an hour, they are spreading right across the sky in little clouds. Now - on looking into Google, there is a whole segment about these trails. Even photos taken of them. America is being troubled with them too, and England. Who is causing this and why? Everyone I know is suffering from a persistent cough, tiredness and some with skin cancer. It seems they are trails of chemicals, and they are becoming more plentiful. Something must be done, and go into this problem. Americans are trying to stop them. All the coral deep in the ocean is suffering too. I think the PM should look into this problem. Gloria Harcus Sedan Carer thanks AS I write this letter, my colleague is taking down the Christmas decorations that have adorned our office for a month or more. I guess this means that Christmas is over. And what a great Christmas it was in this particular office. I work with young carers in the Barossa and surrounding districts. These young people range in age from five to 25 years and have a caring role within the home. Their

program at Carers Link is largely funded by community donations funds which, late last year, were running low. But then. The management, staff and patrons of the Vine Inn commenced a Christmas wishing tree; the staff at the Nuriootpa branch of NAB donated some gifts; a wonderfully generous family who wish to remain anonymous donated some gifts; the children of Hewett Primary School donated the proceeds from their Enterprise Day; and, two locally based trust funds donated cash amounts. This unsolicited generosity meant that every active young carer registered with Carers Link received a Christmas gift this year. Our youngest young carers will be able to go on camp and we are able to expand our social and recreational program in terms one and two. On behalf of the young carers, our board of management, staff and volunteers, I would like to thank this wonderful community for the recognition and appreciation they have shown for the contribution made by young carers. And thanks for making my Christmas a joyous one. Pam Makin Young Carer Support Worker Carers Link Barossa and Districts Nuriootpa Record crowds As published in the Herald recently, the 2011 Kapunda Christmas Street Party was an overwhelming success. Record crowds attended the event and from the countless positive

reports we have received online and verbally, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening and felt the spirit of Christmas in Kapunda. Through the Herald we would like to express an enormous thank you to our valued sponsors (too many to make mention in this letter). Your support has been tremendous and certainly aided the committee in creating the 2011 Kapunda Christmas Street Party into the successful family event that it was. The strength of the support of local Kapunda businesses and the community in general was overwhelming and the generosity second to none. The voluntary committee of the Kapunda Christmas Street Party Incorporated would like to convey our heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to making the 2011 Kapunda Christmas Street Party the success that it was. As we launch into the organisation of the 2012 Kapunda Christmas Street Party plans and preparations, may we take this opportunity of wishing everyone a happy and prosperous 2012. We look forward to seeing you at another fun-filled Kapunda Christmas Street Party in 2012.

biased or anti-religiously bigoted, as I was disappointed to find with Steven Fry in his TV encounter with a Christian fundamentalist recently. But she did embody the surface perusal of much of modern society which often places objectives before obscured truths. True, Mr Wilkes may have used only Old Testament law for his argument which would be wrong of him. And Ms O’Keeffe embellishes, with good reason, the obvious wrongs. But her only problem is that Old Testament law is meant to be wrong. She then trendily inserts today’s favourite sin: slavery. Modern society, because we are largely and even radically indoctrinated, sees slavery as a maligned and dirty word. But if we were to present this a thousand years ago, the listener would look at you blankly and say: “What’s wrong with slavery? Anything?” The modern world really only has an ignorant, surface perception of real life. Especially in the Western world, society sees to it that a downturn on whatever appears bad completely obscures any larger upturn. In ancient times and even in the 19th century, slavery was direly essential for much of the public. Industries and plantations could never have been if unpaid labour didn’t exist. Most slave owners, contradictory to modern and ignorant misleading, were not baddies. The vast majority of plantation owners were good people and kind to their slaves. (As for slave traders, the first of them were Africans themselves). Only a small, condemned minority were cruel to their slaves. The writer them emphasises how the various bible authors are contradictory regarding slavery. But are they really? She will find with perseverance that negative and positive approaches to any bible subject are relative only to context. Isaiah, for example, uses slavery as a curse when symbolising the penalties for unbelievers. In Luke and Exodus, both historic and not law books, slavery is included as a normal way of life. None fundamentally contradict. Perhaps the writer’s largest misunderstanding is that of her using Leviticus to back her argument for the bible’s barbarity. Leviticus is barbaric in modern terms, because, as aforementioned, it is meant to be. Leviticus details fully the old Mosaic Law. It is meant partly as a contrast to show its harshness when compared to the New Law which Christ established after His coming. She is right when she asserts that God didn’t write the bible. And nor did Moses write the first five books. These were written by five different prophets in approximately 700BC just after the reign of Solomon. Nonetheless, the authors were indisputably inspired by God. For upon reading them it is plain to see their divine beauty and truth which no human being could accomplish without divine interception. Jeff Hansen Greenock Arrivals opinion The continuing naïve and impractical views being expressed in the media in relation to unauthorised arrivals into Australia deserve a response. We all know about international refugee conventions but, in my opinion, they are now outdated and in urgent need of revision. In a world where there are over 40 million displaced people and which is, according to demographic experts, already 100 per cent over carrying capacity at the present rate of consumption, no country especially one with a generous, enviable lifestyle like Australia, can afford to have an open border policy when it comes to people supposedly seeking asylum but in my opinion, actually moving between countries and “shopping around” for the best way of life and welfare availability. Why should the population of this country have their peaceful, relatively uncrowded way of life put at risk by thousands of people from countries that have been either unable or unwilling to

Wednesday, January 18, 2012 - Page 12 - The Herald, Barossa Valley

sustain their numbers or improve their way of life? Why should we have to accept abhorrent cultural practices which have no place in a country that champions “easygoingness”, community harmony and equal rights for women? With so-called globalisation undermining our national sovereignty, our food production and manufacturing industries, I shudder to think of the “Lucky Country” ending up in the same chaos as some European countries, battling unemployment, crime and ethnic tensions following the influx of thousands of desperate people from desperate, often corruptly-governed countries, and also from countries that have been turned upside down by the USA and its allies. I have tried to find out whether our government is doing anything about the thousands of visa over-stayers currently in this country, and the silence is deafening. I wonder why? Ms A Hodges Birdwood Wind farm concern This is an open letter to all those farmers and landowners that have made or are contemplating making agreements or contracts with wind farm developers. We understand that the financial arrangements between yourselves and the developers are such that it represents a very tempting investment in the future of what is being promoted as positive sustainable energy. There are however, many drawbacks to this form of electricity generation that should be taken into account. Not the least of these is the effect these wind turbines will have on the natural environment, the “nature” of our countryside and consequently on every living creature within a substantial distance of what many of us regard as alien monstrosities. There is a great deal of evidence from all over the world that shows that the construction and operation of giant turbines causes a great deal of discomfort to those unfortunate enough to be within range which in some cases is as far as 10 kilometres. There will be no hiding away of these huge turbines (up to 145 metres total height) and you will be responsible for permanently changing our hills and dales from a natural vista to a straight out industrial wasteland that so many people over the years will come to hate. It will be a natural progression that many of those people will also come to regard you with an animosity commensurate with their degree of discomfort, welfare and in some cases physical and mental disorders. You may wish to deny that there will be “side effects” and you may also think that your financial gain will somehow make it worth putting up with some discomfort yourselves as well as all the ill feeling from your neighbours. The reality of the situation may well be very different from that which you imagine however and once you have committed to the industrialisation of your land there will be no turning back, you will not be able to change your mind when you see how monstrous these machines really are. There is considerable evidence now that wind turbines are not the answer to global warming etc and that they are just a manifestation of expensive political expediency that are wreaking havoc all over the world and delivering unreliable and very costly power. We would urge you to consider very carefully your commitment to this highly controversial industry and also to consider the other residents of the district whose lives will be severely compromised by your actions. In anticipation you may reconsider your intentions, we remain yours sincerely, David Formby, Tony Walker, Robyn Gilbert, Sue Kennedy, Hiedi Smith, Erwin Thaler, Wolf Bramberger, Geoff Ball, all from Keyneton - Eden Valley district.

To assist police, contact BankSA Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000. • A 19-year-old Lewiston man was reported on January 13 by the Gawler Police for driving while disqualified and as a result had his vehicle impounded for 28 days. • A 59-year-old Gawler East man was reported on January 14 by the Gawler Police for PCA with a reading of 0.082. • A 38-year-old Elizabeth Grove woman was reported on January 14 by the Gawler Police for exceeding speed and PCA with a reading of 0.147.

minutes to go, and the cameras panned to the crowd who were united celebrating. Only a minute later, the opposition regained the lead. Talk about going to extremes. But the game wasn’t over, with just 10 seconds left, the home team scored again to grab the lead and win. You guessed it, the fans were back wildly cheering after a minute earlier going from the highest high to the lowest low. Is there anything other than sport which could see emotions fluctuate so wildly? It doesn’t have to be sport at the highest level, it can be kids’ sport on a Saturday or Sunday morning.

part and enjoy the sport but rush does come with a win or a loss. On Friday, we will see an adrenaline rush as the world’s best cyclists take part in the Santos Tour Down Under which finishes in Tanunda. Those cyclists will pedal for about three and a half hours before the stage will come down to a sprint over the final few hundred metres. So after riding in a peloton and being involved in team tactics, it really just comes down to the final 20 or 30 seconds of about 210 minutes. For one cyclist, and his team, there will be rush of joy. For the rest, regroup and have another go on Saturday.

Help locate a vehicle THE public is asked to help police locate the driver of a small, white, two-door sports car believed to be involved in the death of Jayson Johnathon Doelz at Kersbrook. The body of the deceased man was found on Wednesday, January 11. Investigators believe the man was assaulted by a number of men at Little South Para Road, Kersbrook, at about 5.45pm on Monday, and died as a result. The vehicle was seen heading north towards Williamstown. To assist, contact BankSA Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Wellbeing Back to School

Something for everyone

FRIENDLY FACES: Owner Karen Harding with Bruce Lad, can help with your back to school needs at Karen’s Clearance Shoes in Kapunda.

ENJOYING LIFE: Ladies taking part in the STARplex aqua fitness class.

Be happy - every day HAPPINESS can be defined in terms of living a good life, or flourishing. A mental state of well-being, happiness can be characterised by positive emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. A variety of psychological, religious, and philosophical approaches have striven to define happiness. Rather than attempt to define what “happiness” is, we need to be mindful of how we might attain it by following simple basic steps as guidelines: 1. Increase your water intake (dehydrated brains are grumpy). 2. Eat REAL food - nuts, vegies, fruit (remove unprocessed food and your energy levels will soar). 3. Get fit and experience that “puffed” feeling (a fit person at the end of an exercise class does not feel tired at the end. Being happy is easier when you are

fitter). Also, choose an exercise discipline that you would like to master. Do it regularly and improve your ability and skill level eg ballroom dancing or swimming. This will help you develop personally and professionally. Relaxation and resting allows you to enjoy time out by yourself (truly happy people love who they are). 4. Finally, include strength training (a strong body copes with emotional and physical stress much better). It has been said that “variety is the spice of life”. The truth is that variety will keep you interested and more content and therefore more likely to exercise. Changing environment with your exercise (beach runs, cycle trails), including different routines will challenge your body and leave you with an invigorated feeling. The health benefits of a positive mind and body are compelling. Regular exercise aids longevity and improves quality of life, lowering levels of depression by releasing endorphins (natural chemical in the body). Fit, strong people are confident and stand out from the crowd, most of all through their smile.

IT’S ALMOST time again for the kids to head back through the gates for the start of the new school year and now is the time to grab a bargain.

GAWLER residents are now urged to place blood donations at the top of their to do lists for 2012. The Australian Red Cross Blood Service will need 1.4 million donations this year as the nation continues to rely on just three per cent of the population for its blood. With demand for blood and blood products expected to double in the next decade, SA Donor services manager Alex Frolow encourages more residents to give blood. “One in three of us will need blood in our lifetime, yet only one in 30 donates,” he said. “Many Australians treat New Year’s resolutions as a negative they often try to give up something rather than take up a life-changing activity, like donating blood.

Real Estate Liftout PROPERTY OF THE WEEK

SPACIOUS: The house at Cockatoo Valley on about five acres.

Exceptional WOW. You’ll remember the drive to this house and the kids in the back seat will be saying, “Mum and Dad, this is awesome, can we buy it?”. Arriving at this lovely modern house in Cockatoo Valley, set on a gorgeous parcel of elevated land of about five acres, you’ll all agree that this is an enviable family property. ‘Whispering Heights’ was designed as a prestigious development with large quality homes on acreage allotments. This property, surrounded by lush green lawns and towering gums, can become your very own peaceful hideaway. For children the freedom to run, play and pursue their favourite outdoor activities is endless. The home offers a versatile floor plan with four large bedrooms, two generous living areas and two bathrooms, one being ensuite to the master bedroom. The open-plan kitchen and family room offers expansive views over the surrounding countryside and opens

onto a fabulous undercover entertaining area and gorgeous swimming pool. A built-in pizza oven provides the ideal alternative to a barbecue either for the family or when feeding a crowd and in winter it would provide a cosy spot for dining. The entire outdoor area has been designed for stylish year-round living and entertaining. Terraced gardens and large expanses of lawn frame the house and are easily maintained with an automated watering system. Large capacity rainwater storage more than covers your water requirements. As well as a double car shed under the main roof , a large Colorbond shed provides room for extra vehicles and all of the other boys’ toys that you may have. For those looking to provide a very special home for their family this exceptional property should not be overlooked.

Living in a tent THIS brilliantly modulated house (pictured) is pitched like a tent among the trees. High amid beautiful bushland and tucked between Dromana on Port Phillip Bay and Shoreham on Western Port, where the elegant hues of the Mornington Peninsula recall an impressionist's palette, is Red Hill in Victoria. This is a place of sanctuary, serenity and soothing sea breezes, a perfect place for a house and haven. This David Luck-designed house at 71 Lookout Road is just that. But it is oh so much more; or is that less? In all its glorious reality, this house is, in fact, a tent. A marvellous, brilliantly conceived and perfectly modulated tent but a tent nonetheless, and it is a joy to behold. OK, so it's forged from black steel panels and angles up and through the bushland so that from one viewpoint, it looks as though a large black truck has come to rest in the middle of the green. Another way of seeing the structure is as a kind of prehistoric, hulking black beetle, making its way, head down, through the undergrowth. This is a remarkable place, not least because it's such an unexpected sight in the middle of the bush but also because it fits here so beautifully. It's a very neat trick to make a series of black metal boxes look as if they belong organically among the gum trees. After parking at the end of a long, open gangplank elevated a few feet from the ground, you head towards a small square of light in the righthand corner of the house.

The idea is that this place is a getaway, so you arrive on Friday night after work, park and move towards the light that orients you to the shape of the house - a beacon if you will. Follow it to your repose. Inside, the wide passage angles up towards the north, a line of floortracking windows allowing a glimpse of the bushland beyond. This is a fine feature as the rest of the house is essentially open to the outside, so the blank west wall provides protection from the sun and a sense of enclosure. Across to the right is where our tent metaphor really comes into its own. A series of platforms accommodates several beds - there are no real internal walls to speak of and, as such, the views of bushland are generous and exquisite, giving the feeling that you really are out there with nature. A gorgeously fitted bathroom makes an excellent concession to luxury comfort, with a water wall that runs onto the tilted pane of glass serving as your basin. Brilliant. Glass on the eastern edge

can be fully opened so you can have your shower with the birds. The terrific kitchen sits centrally, its glass rectangular box projecting into the scenery. This is a seriously handsome area but you won't find too many mod cons here; there's a cool benchtop, storage, a sink and room for a small fridge. There is no oven, so you would have to bring your own. We are camping, remember. The living room at the northern end is spectacularly anchored to the other boxes by long panes of glass. In here, there is an atmospheric old Kelly stove for warmth and the bush lies all around, courtesy of more sliding walls of glass. You can even decide which view you would like by moving the custom-made furniture. There is also a one-room ''shed'' on the 1.17-hectare property, providing more accommodation options. It's not surprising then to note that this place has apparently been voted by a prestigious magazine one of the 100 top houses in the world. Tentwise it would have to be No 1.

Comparison Interest Rate Table

FOUND your dream home but yet to sell your current one? Act fast to save money and avoid extra stress. The contract is signed, the champagne drunk, the ‘Sold’ sticker on the board. Now all you have to do is pay. For many buyers, this means selling their home and settling in time to finance their purchase - a stressful but common scenario. And it is one made even more fraught by today's struggling market in which properties are taking longer to sell. Many property pundits have suggested the market will continue to fall - meaning some home owners could do better financially to sell now and buy, say, in a year or two - but home owners who know how hard it is to find their dream home might prefer to sidestep the uncertainty of price rises and falls by buying before they sell but with as little time between the transactions as possible. Such a move requires clever planning and speedy work. And nerves of steel, according to psychologist Meredith Fuller. She says buying and selling houses are times of high emotion for most people but the uncertainty of selling their house and not knowing what they are going to could be emotionally testing for many people because “a home is very important to a lot of people; it is part of you”. “The worst thing is to sell first and not find something you love and have to settle for second best.” And she says holding your nerve is crucial if you begin to ‘catastrophise’. “It is so important to remind yourself there were excellent reasons why you bought before you sold.” It is a situation Laura and Daniel Barallon know well. The couple, both accountants, began house hunting before selling their Hawthorn East flat in Melbourne. “We did not like the idea of, if we sold and could not find something to buy, having to rent for a short period of time and then making a rushed decision because we were in limbo,” Mr Barallon says.

Basic Variable Annual % rate

While they looked, they decluttered their flat and contacted agent Frank Mlikota of Parkinson, with whom they had dealt previously. And they consulted their bank, calculating the lowest price they could accept. When they bought their Northcote house with a 90day settlement, a ‘mad rush’ had photos of their flat on the Domain website within a week. With numerous potential buyers, they relaxed - then their agent’s phone went quiet and, as auction day approached, the couple's nervousness increased. “Originally, we would have been over the moon with $550,000, then a flat upstairs went for $575,000 and we thought, we would be happy with that,” Ms Barallon says. “We never thought it would not sell - it was about price, how much bigger our mortgage would have to be. So when their flat sold for $598,000 - $48,000 above the reserve - the relief was enormous.” Despite their anxiety, they believe buying first was a practical option. “You have to have an understanding of the place you will be selling and what is happening in that area. Are places selling?,” Mr Barallon says. Agent Shayne Mooney of Nelson Alexander agrees checking the market is vital. “Be aware of the worth of your property and what similar properties are selling for in the market,” he says. “And get the house prepared; for example, painting, maintenance, brickwork repointed, carpet replaced.” Choose your agent in advance preferably a leader in the area with numerous branches, a large, competitive team and a buyer database. “Once your property hits the market, they can get in contact with people before it is advertised and alert them,” Mr Mooney says. “If you are ready for your property to be exposed to the market place, you can do that even before the ads go in the paper or on the internet. You may sell before you even have to commit to advertising or go

through the inconvenience of a marketing campaign.” That means having your paperwork - in particular your section 32 vendor statement ready as quickly as possible. Property lawyer Andrew Whitelaw says a section 32 remains valid for about three months. But a lawyer or conveyancing company must attach all necessary certificates. Companies that offer superquick section 32s sometimes do not do this, causing delays at sale. “It is often better to sell first but it really depends on your equity position,” Mr Whitelaw says. Describing high-interest bridging finance as “a potential world of pain”, Mr Whitelaw, of TressCox Lawyers, says substantial equity might make it possible to extend an existing mortgage to pay for the new home. Negotiating an extended settlement might be possible but the vendor does not have to agree. If the vendor doesn't, a defaulting buyer not only loses the deposit but is also liable for the difference between the purchase price and what the property is eventually sold for. “They have to show they made reasonable endeavours but the courts are reasonably lenient to the person who suffers the loss because they are the innocent party,” Mr Whitelaw says. The experts agree that speed and organisation are the keys to selling fast. Ben Allen, of Allen Moving and Storage, says sellers doing an urgent declutter and storing goods should work out in advance what items will go. “Make an inventory, then walk through and check what goes to storage,” he says. “Then get yellow dots and red dots and mark everything. “We get a lot of last-minute calls for declutter and a lot of people don't realise how much gear they have got until they start to move,” Mr Allen says. That sounds stressful but Ms Fuller says reminding yourself this is just for a short time and thinking positively about your house-sale prospects will help. Good luck.

By August of 2010 the latest full-length album Bush League Bard was released to more rave reviews. Underneath the Radar is a compilation of songs from his first five albums. The concert will also feature Liz Stringer who has been described as an old fashioned storyteller with a soulful voice. Liz comes from a musical family, which resulted in her keen ear for music, teaching herself the piano and guitar and developing an early song writing ability. After travelling for several years overseas she moved to Melbourne. In 2008 Liz embarked on her first national tour with great reviews after playing at venues in Victoria, New South Wales, Western


MUSICIAN Van Walker will visit Tanunda as part of his ‘Under the Radar’ tour during the first Candlelight Concert for 2012. He appears at the Barossa Regional Gallery on Saturday, February 5. Born and raised on the northwest coast of Tasmania, Van first heard the music of Bob Dylan around adolescence and began picking guitar and writing songs. Hundreds of songs later he moved to Melbourne to form the rock and roll outfit The Swedish Magazines. The first collection of his songs came out in 2008 entitled The Celestial Railroad and in 2009 three separate sessions were released, The Last Record Store, Greetings from Penguin Tasmania and Love Fate. Drawing on the grand storytelling tradition, Van created a sound both old

workshop, which spans 100 feet by 30 feet, is fitted out with all the tools, accessories and even an enclosed paint spraying room necessary for him complete his work. “I’m self taught and I make the entire vehicle - from wiring through to trimming,” he said. In order to get the vehicle Chris desired, he flew to Melbourne on Christmas Eve of 2001. He then travelled by taxi to the seller’s home and then spent about five hours looking over the disused vehicle. After deciding to take the vehicle, Chris then dusted himself off from a New Year’s party at his Roxby Downs home and with his mate travelled the 1400km to Melbourne. Together they loaded the vehicle and by midnight, January 3 were home. Chris said he prefers to strip a

vehicle to bare basics to better access how he can create the perfect hot rod. The ‘34 Coupe features specially designed wheels that are the result of Chris once again travelling, this time overseas in 2004, to work alongside a company which specifically designs parts for vehicles. The hot rod also features a Corvette LS1 300kw motor, a four-speed turbo, air conditioning, central locking, power windows, front seats sourced from a Hyundai Excel and a back seat from a Honda Prelude, which Chris said only need an inch cut either side to fit. The public has the opportunity to check out Chris’ master piece and a whole swag of hot rods that will line Murray Street, Tanunda on Saturday evening.

CHRIS Horewood knows how to build desirable cars. The Lyndoch man, who works in the Roxby Downs mines, has the skills and an amazing workshop to help him craft from a rusted shell a head-turning hot rod. Chris, the newest member of the Valley Hot Rodders Club, will feature in this weekend’s Cruise On with his rare twilight royal coloured ‘34 Ford Coupe. It took him eight years to complete. “My family call it the Violet Crumble because it’s purple on the outside and tan on the inside,” he said. Chris’ fascination of cars came about at a young age and since then he hasn’t stopped reading vehicle magazines, asking for advice and booking courses to learn all the tricks of the trade. His meticulously kept

THIS weekend marks the 20th anniversary of the Valley Hot Rodders Cruise On and everyone is invited. To commemorate the occasion the Valley Hot Rodders Club will appoint Mark and Trish Burton from Barossa Valley Hire as patrons of the Cruise On and a birthday cake will be cut. And the celebrations continue. On Saturday night from 5pm to 11pm the expectant crowd of about 4500 will be treated to the usual line up of about 500 hot rods from the Seppeltsfield arch to Theodore Street, along Murray Street in Tanunda. This year the committee has organised three bands with the Silverados and Saturday’s Army to play in front of Tanunda Hotel and Phoenix to perform in the rotunda. The Barossa Valley Rock ‘n’ Roll members will also been showing off their moves. New Cruise On t-shirts, which come in sizes kids’ six to XXXL and highlighting the 20th anniversary, will be for sale for $28 along with stubbie holders and key rings. The street will also be jam packed with food and refreshments for the family and a trophy presentation kicks off from about 8.30pm, with the hot rods to cruise the street from about 9.30pm. The weekend begins this Friday evening, January 20, with an invite-only style event, involving about 80 registered entries, held at the Tanunda Caravan Park. Also, as part of the anniversary past members have

Wednesday, January 18, 2012 - Page 20 - The Herald, Barossa Valley

been invited to mix with current members and enjoy the night’s social activities including a sausage sizzle, music by KG Big Band. To support the club’s members, other volunteers have been brought in so the club can unwind and party with the guests. According to Cruise On co-ordinator Trudy Vaughan, the night is a chance to welcome Mark and Trish Burton as patrons to the Cruise On. “They are fantastic sponsors who support us each year with what we need,” Trudy said. On Saturday, January 21, the public has a chance to preview the hot rods after members rise early to cook their guests breakfast before leaving together at about 10.30am for an observation cruise organised by Todd Giles. On Sunday the group will then take on a leisurely cruise of the Barossa and finish at Bethany Reserve where entrants will be treated to Rosie Roasts. A total of six trophies will be awarded this weekend and new this year is the ladies’ choice award. The public is welcome to also come view the vehicles. The organising committee stress entry to Saturday night’s Cruise On is for hot rods, meaning custom pre 1970 vehicles and American Classics pre 1970 only. There is strictly no restored cars or non-custom cars and vehicle entry is just $10. For more details head to the club’s newly created website

DOING WELL: The Hyundai Accent Elite is proving very popular.

By PAUL BARRETT IF YOU are in any doubt as to the impact Korean cars are having on the Australian market, look no further than Hyundai. More than 87,000 units sold in 2011, market share of 8.6 per cent and fifth biggest seller overall. In the light car segment, Hyundai holds top spot with a combined market share of 17.9 percent (Getz, i20 and Accent models), and fourth in the small car segment (i30 and Elantra models). The new Accent is a perfect example of why Hyundai is doing so well. It slots neatly between the tiny i20 hatch and the larger Elantra and i30 models and takes on the Mazda2, Ford Fiesta and VW Polo. Customers will have a choice of three trim levels in either hatch or four-door sedan. As with all Hyundai models, the Accent has been developed with a particular buyer in mind. It isn’t aimed at the driver whose first concern is sports handling and performance. On the other hand, most buyers will be more than satisfied with the adequate (rather than outstanding) performance and handling that is well up to the task of day to day driving. The 91kW/156Nm 1.6-litre petrol engine delivers everything any reasonable driver could ask, with the added bonus of 6.0 l/100km fuel consumption (6.4 in the auto). The entry level Accent is called the

Active. At $16,990, it is keenly priced and well-equipped with six airbags, electronic stability control, seatbelt reminders for all five seats and fourspeaker audio system with auxiliary and USB inputs, Bluetooth audio streaming and phone connectivity. It rides on steel wheels with wheel covers. Next model up the scale is the Elite ($18,490) with 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights and additional chrome highlights. Inside, the Elite boasts gloss black highlights, premium steering wheel with ample controls, keyless entry, central console and a storage net in the rear. The sound system gains an extra couple of tweeters. Top of the range is the Accent Premium ($20,990) that adds a reversing camera and sensors, electro-chromatic rear vision mirror, push-button start (auto models), climate control and faux leather seats. The only option is metallic paint ($375). The four-speed auto adds $2000. No doubt Hyundai is disappointed that there is no diesel engine on offer but assured us that a 1.6-litre turbodiesel will arrive in the not-toodistant future. Also on the planning board is a more powerful gasoline direct injection engine. On the road, the Accent feels commendably taut and well puttogether, confirming Hyundai’s assurances that the suspension has been tuned in Australia for Australian conditions.

Bold Barina HOLDEN’S stylish Barina hatchback is making a bold statement about GM’s small car design philosophy. Why not look for yourself at Steinborner’s Holden four-day sale from Wednesday, January 18. All new 2011 cars and demos reduced with a five-year warranty and five-year roadside assist on all new vehicles during the sale. The Barina’s striking interior and exterior design was led by Holden’s Ondrej Koromhaz while on assignment at General Motors’ South Korea design centre and takes familiar design cues from its Barina Spark and Cruze siblings. Incorporating sporty, sophisticated styling features and clever interior storage ideas, the Barina hatchback’s design is intended to broaden its appeal to a wider range of customers who appreciate style, technology and quality. Holden designer Richard Ferlazzo said the new-generation Barina was a serious small car with a fun and energetic appearance that captures key design elements synonymous with the Holden brand. “Ondrej has done a fantastic job with Barina. It’s a global car but there’s something about Barina’s design that still says Holden,” Mr Ferlazzo said. “Barina is a fun, energetic and aspirational light car. It’s got great compact proportions, great stance and a stable, sporty look and that’s what gives Barina the edge. “Ondrej has imparted a lot of Holden DNA in the surface language and the way it sits on the road. “Barina projects a road presence way beyond its size and, even though it’s small, Barina really looks the part.”

Exterior design Inspired by a four-wheel motorcycle advance concept, Barina boasts a muscular appearance with a wide stance, sculpted body panels and dynamic proportions. Concealed rear door handles and aggressive, steeply raked feature lines give it a three-door, coupe-like profile while the rounded, exposed head and taillights with black bezels and chrome rings add a three-dimensional, sporty element. Barina’s proportions are key to its appearance of sportiness and stability. The wheels have been pushed out to all four corners, helping Barina look well planted on the road. Ten-spoke 15” alloy wheels and an integrated, body-coloured rear spoiler reinforces Barina’s sporty appearance. Interior design Barina’s compact dimensions conceal a spacious and edgy interior – one of the largest in its segment – complete with motorcycle-inspired instrument panel and multiple clever storage pockets. On the driver’s side, the detailed instrument cluster features a large, round analogue tachometer set within an asymmetrical LCD readout alongside an easy-to-read digital speedometer. Ice blue interior illumination and LED backlighting feature throughout, adding to the cabin’s upmarket feel. Thoughtful design solutions have been employed to maximise Barina’s generous cabin dimensions, helping it achieve high levels of driver and passenger comfort in the front and back seats. Have a look at a Barina, you’ll be impressed. See Jarrod, Daryl or Brett at Steinborner Barossa, 157 Murray Street, Nuriootpa - it’s well worth the trip.

Be safe, be Paris influences the risk of a road crash. “Improving the visibility of a cyclist is an effective strategy for reducing collisions, including daylight when the majority of cycling crashes have occurred. “Studies have shown that the time to react to a person wearing fluorescent safety clothing is about 40 per cent faster than reacting to a person in darker clothing. “With normal headlights, a driver identifies a person in dark clothing about 55 metres away, but this extends to about 250 metres away if the person is wearing reflective clothing. “The campaign has also been well researched among cyclists, highlighting visibility as a critical tactic for increasing their safety on the road. “Cyclists strongly endorsed Stuart O’Grady to champion the road safety message. Stuart is an accomplished professional cyclist and a proud South Australian,” Mr Ali said. Speaking at the launch, Stuart O’Grady, said that cyclists can increase their visibility through good lighting, fluorescent, reflective and generally light and bright clothing. “Being safe also means being smart. Cyclists should ride in a prominent position on the road and in a predictable manner,” Mr O’Grady said. “The MAC has designed a campaign that is unique in the way it delivers road safety education and aims to promote a safer mind-set among cyclists. “At the end of the day we don’t want anyone seriously hurt or killed on our

Santos Tour Down Under Race Director Mike Turtur praised the MAC’s new campaign ‘Be Safe, Be Seen’ and said it was a great initiative to highlight the importance of rider safety. “It’s fantastic to see so many people getting out on their bikes and being active, especially at this time of the year when the weather is so great in the lead up to the

SOUTH Australian superstar cyclist Stuart O’Grady has teamed-up with the Motor Accident Commission (MAC) to launch a cycling road safety campaign. The launch of the new public education campaign coincided with the MAC announcing its major partnership with the Santos Tour Down Under. The MAC Corporate Communications manager, Jehad Ali, said the popularity of riding is increasing significantly as people become more aware of the health, environmental and financial benefits cycling can provide. “Unfortunately cycling related incidents are an emerging road safety concern. From 2001 to 2010 road crash casualties fell by four per cent, whereas cyclist casualties increased by 47 per cent,” Mr Ali said. “The Santos Tour Down Under is the perfect place to promote a road safety message to cyclists. The message ‘Be Safe, Be Seen’ aims to remind cyclists of the importance of visibility when cycling. “Large blimps will take to the sky during the Santos Tour Down Under to encourage cyclists to participate in road safety education via Facebook. “Cyclists will also have the opportunity to win a VIP trip to the Tour de France. “Cyclists account for about four per cent of Compulsory Third Party (CTP) claims, costing the fund approximately $20 million per-year. “Being seen is a fundamental requirement for the safety of all road users.

Community News Lyndoch Historical Society

Barossa Solace

THE Lyndoch Historical Society held a wellattended annual general meeting at which Quentin Nuske retired from the position of president and Ivan Randall was elected in his place. Kim Michelmore filled the vice president’s position, and Anne Hausler was re-elected as secretary/treasurer. Those elected as committee members were Melinda Melbourne, Paul Hughes, Quentin Nuske, Margaret and Shane Sloan, Jack and June Filsell and Sibohn Merenda. Following the successful meeting, Anne Hausler gave an outline of life in Lyndoch a hundred years ago mentioning social gatherings, humorous events, the commencement of the institute building and the opening of the Gawler-Angaston rail line. This was followed by a power point presentation of the construction and opening of the railway line in 1911. The society has produced calendars for 2012 that feature photographs of the Lyndoch Institute and Post Office, both of which will be celebrating centenaries this year. It will also be the 175th anniversary of the naming of Lynedoch Vale by Colonel Light in December 1837 making it a special year for the town, the oldest in the Barossa. The first meeting for the society in 2012 will be held on February 5 at 2pm in the meeting room at the rear of the Lyndoch Library. The centenary of laying the institute foundation stone will be the topic.

President Barbara McRostie welcomed 31 Solace members, along with four friends from Elizabeth and Pastor Trevor Reu, who is a Support Person to the group, to the annual Christmas luncheon which was held at The Weintal, Tanunda. Pastor Reu preceded the absolutely wonderful meal with Table Grace. Music during the day, and also for the singing of carols, was supplied by the secretary Val Schultz who also presented two humorous readings. Merle Liebig was the winner of the door prize. During the afternoon, a very jolly Father Christmas paid a visit and gave gifts to everyone. Father and Mrs Christmas were given a gift in appreciation of the time spent with the group. Birthday wishes for December were given to Merle Liebig, Jean Diener, Connie Irrgang, Glenys Pitters and Carlene Schmaal. A Christmas raffle was held with winners being Eidith Sillett, Kay Goodman, Marion Davis and Kay Smith, (all from Elizabeth), Frieda Atze, Joyce Saegenschnitter, Barbara McRostie, Neville Schultz, Carlene Schmaal, Val Graetz, Merle Liebig, Pauline Henke, Henk van der Wijngaart and Marlene Davies.

Tanunda WAB Tanunda branch of Women in Agriculture and Business held their November meeting at Barossa Enterprises on Samuel Road, Nuriootpa. The place was chosen because they work with the disabled, as does the WAB project for the year, Bedford Industries. Members were most impressed by what is being done to help those who are handicapped in many ways. The workshop, community garden and vineyard are indeed a credit to them. Members of the branch again offered to supply the prize money for the rich fruit cake at Tanunda Show. A brief report of the WAB council meeting was given by Margaret Craigie.

Tanunda Hospital Tanunda Hospital Ladies Auxiliary members, together with several singers from St John’s Church Choir and Karen Dutschke playing the guitar, sang carols at the hospital on December 8 followed by a short meeting and supper. The Christmas baskets raffle raised $607 and David Pech and Margaret Matte were the winners. A sincere thank you to all who have supported the hospital through donations and fundraising events during the year. A number of aids and equipment have been purchased for the hospital including an emergency cart, Minuet Hi-Low bed and mattress and the latest purchase of a patient monitor with attachments costing $6000. The next meeting is on February 6.

She said the money that had been raised would go to support the residents of Abbeyfield to help with extra comforts for their enjoyment. Peter Hutchins supplied the excellent music for the dancers. The hall was decorated for the occasion by the committee, with Bud Abbott and Lou Costello on the bench under the tree. Numerous prizes were won during the evening and a sumptuous supper enjoyed. During the evening a presentation of a cheque was made to Lyn Venning, a staff member of Abbeyfield, by Rae Materne of the funds raised this year as well as a bouquet of flowers. Lyn suitably responded. Sincere thanks go to the business people of Williamstown who sponsor the dance. They are Lubch Wines, Domain Day, Tearo Wines, Williamstown Corner Bakery, Williamstown Hotel, Williamstown Post Office, The Old Bakehouse Tavern, Pure Serenity Hair Studio, Smith Brothers Transport and Potger and Richardson, the Gawler chemist which serves Williamstown. Thanks also to an energetic committee for all their help. The next dance is on Saturday, January 28.

Faith History awards Two committee members of the Friends of the Barossa Library Inc, Mrs Adelaide Abbott and Mr Kevin Platt, spent a full school day at Faith Lutheran School to select the winners of 2011’s Year 9 Local Area Study awards which have now been sponsored by the Friends for 19

years. “This is a challenging but most enjoyable task which never becomes easier,” said Mrs Abbott. “The standard of the work remains so high, that it is very difficult to award only a limited number of prizes.” Last year the History Department’s staff with co-ordinator Mrs Michelle Schwarz and teachers Mrs Barb Garwood, Mr Byron Burns and Mr Ev Leske, presented 12 models and nine essays as finalists out of the work done by the 136 Year 9 students. Mrs Abbott, Mr Platt and Mrs Schwarz commented on the wide variety of subjects chosen for the models and essays submitted. The seven awards presented on December 6 during the End of Year Service for the Year 8 to 10 students, went to Jonathan Markey for his essay “E H Coombe and the E H Coombe Monument” and Lachlan Goss for “Characters of the Barossa A Living History” who shared the first prize and Philip Grace, who received a second prize for his essay “Persecution of German Descendants Living in the Barossa”. In the models section the prizes went to Hudson Schilling for his carving of “Pastor August Ludwig Christian Kavel and His Memorial” (first), Harrison Schuster for a splendid model of a hay baler to illustrate his “History of Hay Production on the Schuster Family Farm” (second) and Fraser Goodwin who built to scale a “Model of Doddridge Blacksmith Shop” (third). An award for innovation went to Brittany Frost for her presentation of the “History of Appelts Soft Drinks”. To appreciate the students’ selection of subjects, it is interesting to see what else was submitted in the essay section: “The Schippan Murder and Houses” by Fiona Zimmermann, “Mt Mary - grandparents’ property” by Jacob Grieger, “The Herbig Family Tree” by Kate Branson, “Nain: a story of Faith, Hope and Division” by Sophie Eather, “Laucke Mills” by Olivia Obst, and “Faith Lutheran Secondary School” by April Zimmermann. The models generated an equally varied approach: Annie Koch learnt to do metal work and made leaves and a hook to demonstrate what used to be done at Doddridge Blacksmith shop, Dinah Swinkels made a model of the Gumeracha Post Office, Casy Ellendon built one of the Nuriootpa Railway Station, Jemma Geyer one of Chateau Yaldara, Deanna Keogh created a Yalumba Winery model entirely out of bottle tops, Alex Mattschoss a William Beavis Randell Kenton Park Homestead model, Meg Bealby a Wohlers’ History model featuring the original pottery shop in Tanunda and Charlotte Warne the Herbig Family Tree.


Western Australian orchids and wildflowers were shown in all their beauty to the Uniting Church Garden Club at Williamstown recently, by means of video by Mr Ian Kilpatrick, who with his wife, also brought a collection of plants from his own garden. They gathered these beautiful photos on various

trips to WA and found you need to leave the car to find them, as some are very tiny. The best place to find them is where the ground has been disturbed eg roadworks, new power lines etc, it seems good soil is not necessary. Without the aid of a camera (in some cases to enlarge) these delicate plants and orchids would be overlooked and their amazing shapes and colours lost. Birthday greetings were extended to Joyce Johncock, Margaret Ochse, Marjorie Green, Kit Wilson, Jean Randall and Tom Lilford. Flower prize winners were Betty, Kim and Kathy. The annual general meeting will be held on February 6, nomination forms available now, and we look forward to greeting new members in 2012.

Breakthrough win Barossa and Light cricket By MIKE TEAKLE

By ROBERT LAIDLAW IN A season where Gawler Rangers may have underachieved, a slim possibility of making a finals charge was re-ignited by beating West Torrens 8-5 in Division Three baseball last Saturday. The Rangers have capitulated in so many games this season it has become almost habit forming. However on Saturday as Torrens made a late charge, the side showed plenty of character to secure the victory. After two scoreless innings, the Rangers scored four times in the third frame, thanks to three errors and Sam Murphy’s hit - making multiple errors in an inning has usually been Gawler’s undoing. James Parker singled, stole second base and came home on Ryan O’Handley’s hit in the fourth dig to make it 5-0, then a big two-run triple by Rick Leonard in the fifth inning fueled a three-run dig, for an 8-0 advantage. In four solid frames on the mound, Andre Benjamin had thrown shut-out ball, conceding just two hits while striking out six batters, but after loading the bases with none-out in the bottom of the fifth, was relieved of his duties, with Leonard

coming on to pitch. After a shaky start, which resulted in five runs crossing the plate, Leonard settled down to retire Torrens, then had three-up and three-down in the sixth and final inning to make sure of the win. Every player either scored a run or batted a run home in a complete team effort, while the enthusiasm from the side was the best it has been all season, which may just see an improbable run towards the finals. With six games remaining for the season, Gawler is two-and-a-half games behind fourth team Woodville, which it plays in the final minor round. The simple equation is the Rangers have to win two more games than Woodville and West Torrens leading into the final minor round game to have a chance to steal a coveted finals spot tough but not impossible. The Rangers B grade lost at the death knell to West Torrens, when the Eagles scored seven last inning runs to grab a 98 win. Gawler led 6-2 going into the final frame, and after conceding seven runs made a valiant effort to get back but fell short with only two runs. The C grade played well but lost 1-16 to Golden Grove Central Districts Dodgers.

Crows star in T20 Big Bash THE Vine-Inn Barossa T20 Big Bash keeps getting bigger with the release of the playing lists this week. The competition, which will take place this Sunday, January 22 at Nuriootpa Oval, will be headlined by Adelaide Crows star Bernie Vince who will be lining up with the Vine-Inn Roar. The JTJ Bombers have also recruited well, including quality grade cricketers Andrew Frick and Michael Cranmer. The Truro Ramblers are fielding a group of locals looking to upset some of the more fancied sides. Perhaps the prize for the best team name may go to the Angaston Strokers who already boasted a formidable batting line up before adding Sandy Creek pair Steve Hogan and Bill Fuller along with globetrotting batsman Greg Bain returning for the day. Another all-local unit is the Gilbert Valley Bulls but the quality of this side should put them in contention for the $1000 prize with the likes of Craig Mullins and James Vandeleur anchoring them. In great news for the Tanunda Magpies, the boys in black and white have managed to lure the best wicketkeeper/batsman in country SA Boh Wall. Back for what could be seen as a testimonial for the ‘old fella’ but the ‘Great Wall’ is a must have for the Pies to be competitive. The Freeling Waterfowls will field a veteran line up including Ian McMillan, Ben Parish and Ashley Read giving them enough firepower to do some damage if the opposition bowlers are off target. Program 9am: Oval 1, Skids Tyres Sloggers v Truro Ramblers; Oval 2, Tanunda Club House Magpies v Angaston Strokers. 11.30am: Oval 1, Vine Inn Roar v Freeling Waterfowls; Oval 2, JTJ Bombers v Gilbert Valley Bulls. 2pm: semi-finals Oval 1; winner game 1 oval 2 v winner game 2 oval 2; Oval 2, winner game 1 oval 1 v winner game 2 oval 1. 4.30pm: Grand final, oval1.

KAPUNDA, the quiet achievers of the season, had a convincing win over South Gawler which has them within sight of forcing their way into the top four. Good scores by the Lions’ Shaun Lay (55) and Riley Barker (99) on their way to 4/217 weren't enough to stop the Bombers 6/240 from overhauling them on the back of Craig Reimann's impressive 102 not out. He received good support from four teammates who got starts, Sam Ryan 20, Rob Johnson 30, Kieren Chappell 26 and Ben Johnson 24 not out. The Bombers’ finals’ hopes were aided by fourth-placed Nuri (194) failing to chase down Angaston's 9/236 despite the best efforts of James Lienert with the ballas he took 7/35 from his eight overs. Contributions from the Blues’ middle order Beau Byster 54, Ben Burgess 65 and Kym Vivian 34 proved too much for the Tigers. Gawler Central escaped the relegation zone and stormed back into the top three with a dominant win over a floundering Sandy Creek. The Tigers put on 6/255 thanks to Ben Tobitt 64, Jamie Mccafferty 45, Aaron King 56 not out and Andrew Frackowski 34. It was an impressive total that looked in danger as the Cockatoo openers set about their business with Steve Hogan (63) and Michael Burden (108) but sadly for the Cockys once those two departed the rest of the batting looked paper thin as only Matt Donohoe (25) registered double figures. Gilbert Valley easily accounted for a Tanunda side that posted just 80 runs with only Mark Hartigan (37) passing 15 runs and almost scoring half his side’s score which included 10 extras. The Bulls may have been lulled into a false sense of security by the small target as they finished all out for just 82 as George Claridge and Dylan Abinett each took three wickets for the Pies. In A1 reserves Brad Fairey (89) couldn't lead Truro 6/205 to a win over Light Pass 4/223 who were boosted by Richard Mattner's 97 and Sean Schrapel's 78 not out. Freeling, 3/224, comfortably dispatched Lyndoch thanks to a fine all-round performance from Ben Parish (72 runs and 2/19 from five overs) and 59 from Lachie Heinrich. In reply Lyndoch puton 7/190 with Adam Jeffrey hitting 46. Greenock, 4/199, smashed Eudunda Robertstown, 115, after Dave Murray (72), Gary Stevens (40), Greg Loffler (32) and Steve Fowler (28 not out) all chipped in to give the Schlungers a potent score.

GOLF KAPUNDA It was a welcome return to fine weather for last weekend’s Tim Ellbourn Engineering par comp at Kapunda. A good field enjoyed the magnificently maintained course. I’ve said it many times before but I can’t heap enough praise on our ever growing army of volunteer mower operators who now have even the “rough” areas that well maintained that it is almost impossible to lose a ball within the boundaries of the course. Naturally, if you stray into the water hazards or the PB lake it is not our fault if your ball doesn’t float. Last Saturday I was fortunate enough to play with the eventual winner of the day who I must mention had a personal best round and broke 90 for the first time ever. I would also like to say that Bazz “Willow” Williams and myself sacrificed our own games to ensure we lifted our playing partner to this amazing result. Needless to say Tony Moritz’s plus 10 was that far ahead it was reminiscent of the Aussies against the Indians in the test. There were also a couple of holes where Tony had a shot up his sleeve. His only blemish for the day was the 15th where he duffed a drive into the trees from which he just failed to recover. As for the rest of the field, all grades were won with a score of +3. In the A grade Ian Clarke was just the one shot ahead of Jayden Higgins who is still playing great golf and John Sheppard. Sal Hambour was the best of the B grade also just the one shot ahead of President Craig. Andy Peters was the only other one in the black with +1. The Hill boys cleaned up in the C grade with Ron a couple shots ahead of Peter. There were a couple of

Div 1 Men: 3rd - Dillon Campbell, Brett Jenner, Edward Liebelt, Sam Powell, Dave Williams and Tim Grace. Div 2 Men: Runners up - Steven Draper, Zac Pretlove, Angas Magarey, Sam Powell and Dillon Campbell. Mixed: Winners - Julie Sumpton, Alan Carmody, Sharon Jenner, John Lane and Dave Williams. Div 2 Women: 4th - Holly Broadhead, Emily Koch and Carlene Fromm.

shockers in this grade as well with Tony “Geezer” Stevens on minus 8 and treasurer James K on minus 10. There was a bit of a countback for the encouragement award with Inge Smith suffering the effects of a big day/night on the Friday also finishing on minus 10. Of the fillies who competed Janet Morrison had it all her own way with a very good +1. As I mentioned earlier, it isn’t the club’s fault if a player’s ball finds the water and unfortunately Willow found out the hard way (twice) that the PB lake has no special density properties that will allow you to retrieve a wayward ball from the water. He did however find a spot where it is much easier to scale the fence. There were the usual flocks of galahs out enjoying the pickings of the lush kikuyu grass and it was good to see Greg “Bully” Higgins doing his best to imitate a scare gun when he cannoned his drive on the 11th straight into the rubbish bin in front of the tee block. I must say his playing partners were quick to deny any involvement of themselves in the almighty bang that rang across the course. The reputation of the Kapunda Golf Club friendliness and excellent course is obviously being well spread with several players from the northern suburbs signing up as members last week. Apparently they can play a bit and I will be interested in following their progress over the coming weeks. It was also fantastic to see Dick Nairn back at Kidman links for a hit as it isn’t every day you have a player on a “plus” handicap playing in the comp. I think Dick did have second thoughts on entering when he saw the +10 on the board as the score to beat. For those who enjoy a good news

Senior results Division One: Kapunda 9-9-85 def 7-781 Tanunda; Vine Vale 4-4-66 def by 1212-97 Nuriootpa; Lyndoch 8-8-82 def 8-880 Xavier Saints. In Division One the competition was tight with two close matches on Friday night. Kapunda maintained its winning ways with a close 9-7 win over Tanunda at Kapunda. Nuriootpa also maintained its claim for finals action with an easy 12 sets to four win over Vine Vale. In the final match at Lyndoch it was Lyndoch by two games in a tight tussle in a match played in good spirit. The match of the night was between Edward Liebelt and Damian McGee with Lyndoch’s Liebelt coming through in a tight 6-3 win. In the ladies Xavier’s Jayne Polito won her match against Emily Koch and Xavier’s Erin Roe was impressive coming from 5-1 down to win 7-5. Division Two: Tanunda White 6-6-76 def by 10-10-92 Willaston; South Gawler Blue 5-5-70 def by 11-11-88 Nuriootpa; Lyndoch 14-14-106 def 2-2-52 South Gawler White; Tanunda Black 7-777 def by 9-9-76 Tod Street. Division Three:Virginia White 3-3-63 def by 13-13-91 Willaston United. On the first Friday night match of the season Willaston United scored a convincing win over Virginia White. The match commenced with the straight doubles first which saw Willaston United jump top a handy lead winning all four matches. After the singles Willaston United had only lost two sets and had already secured the win. Willaston United then added another three sets to their total winning three out of the four mixed doubles. Match star for the week was Willaston United’s doubles combination of Matthew Lodge and Garry Townsend winning their straight double game 6-0 with valiant 7-5 wins to Nick Chenoweth, Kylee Carmody and Sean Ellery from Willaston United For all things tennis in Gawler go to

golf story, my old mate Shaun from the Gawler par three produced the ultimate golf shot at the eighth hole at Balaklava on Sunday when his eight iron took one bounce then rolled in for a hole in one. If you present this article this arvo at the par three at Willaston you might get lucky and get a beer (not necessarily a free one). This week players will need to organise a partner for a 4BBB comp for the Hambours Real Estate trophy and the same will apply the following week for a pairs ambrose comp. I believe Tony Moritz is taking the highest bidder and James Kerrigan is just hopeful that someone will pick him up in the hope he couldn’t play that badly again two weeks in a row. Good luck one and all and congrats again Shaun. Ellbourn Engineering Trophy par competition winner T Moritz +10.

LEIGH Waddington, 2012 Gawler Central senior coach, has been named as a ‘Thunderbabe’. The Thunderbabes are a group of eight girls who have been training with the Adelaide Thunderbirds since December. “It was a shock when Jane (coach Jane Woodlands-Thompson) rang me and invited me out to training,” Leigh said. “The group have done all the training so far with the Thunderbirds but will revert to our state league clubs around the start of the season. “We will still continue to play trial matches for the Thunderbirds during the year.” Leigh said there had been extra emphasis on the midcourt players

because of the injury to Australian and Thunderbird captain Natalie von Bertouch who plays centre. “Nat has had a foot injury and is making slow progress. “It will be touch and go whether she is right for the start of the season at the end of March,” Leigh said. “There is a pre-season competition in New Zealand earlier in the month and Jane intends taking at least one midcourt player but I am unavailable as it is my sister Jade’s wedding.” Even though she has strong commitments with the Thunderbabes and her state league club Cougars Leigh said she was looking forward to the season with Gawler Central. “We had our trials recently and have a squad of 19 doing preseason training.” 1782718

TANUNDA let slip a golden opportunity to extend their lead in Division One by losing 81-105 to Kapunda who are second to bottom. The loss sees the Magpies leading narrowly from both Nuriootpa and Freeling giving the competition a genuine three-way tussle for the double chance. Lyndoch’s hold on fourth spot looks in jeopardy after the Dockers’ 20-shot loss to Angaston at home. The Blues incredibly are sitting just four points adrift of fourth after a terrible start to the season. Division Two still has a logjam at the top with Angaston pulling off a four-shot win over Tanunda Black to retain second spot. A loss would have seen the Blues tumble out of the four.

MIXED fortunes for the Madgen family on the weekend. Firstly, Ben’s Sydney Kings lost to Townsville 118-114 despite the Williamstown guard knocking in a seasonhigh 24 points. However, sister Tess was instrumental in Bendigo’s 71-70 win in Canberra. Trailing by eight points with under two minutes remaining Tess kick started the Spirit’s revival with a steal and driving all the way for a layup (taking her tally to 14 points. With just seconds left and one point down, Tess received the ball on an inbound pass and moved into the key attracting all of the defensive attention before hitting Kristi Harrower with a perfect pass allowing the feisty guard to hit a game-winning shot.

IN LATE 2011 I was reelected to represent South Australia on the board of Fly Fish Australia, again taking up the position of media/communications director. Being on a board gives you a voice. In our organisation we provide an outlet for people to show off their fishing skills at a competition level and also go on to represent Australia at international fly fishing events. In mid February, 90 anglers will converge on Tasmania for the biggest Commonwealth championships ever held. Competing against countries like Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, Singapore, Kiribati, Isle of Man, Northern Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales is such a thrill and advances your fishing so much.

And none of this would’ve been possible without the board of Fly Fish Australia and its directors. Being an active part of an organisation is something our younger anglers need to consider. In the Barossa Valley it is unfortunate that we do not have an anglers club or any organisation to represent us. You know what they say about safety in numbers and I’m sure we would have more presence toward opening waters if we had the numbers here. Who would represent us if they wanted to stop all forms of recreational fishing tomorrow? Visit the website of and if you like what you see become a member. The opportunities it has given me and the skills I have gained you couldn’t put a price on, and I think we should all get on board. Tight lines until next week.

History in the making

won’t be beaten on Price & Service Gawler Park Homemaker Centre


HISTORY is in the making this weekend when Adelaide Bite host Brisbane Bandits at Norwood Oval in the final round of the Australian Baseball League. The Bite can finish anywhere from second to fifth after the round has been completed, such is the closeness of the competition, with just two games separating Sydney in second to Brisbane in sixth. After losing the series two games to three in Sydney against the Blue Sox, Adelaide is sitting equal third with Melbourne and Canberra, one game behind Sydney and one in front of Brisbane. With all teams playing five more games, there is a real scramble for the remaining three finals spots behind run-a-way leaders Perth, which hosts Sydney this week, while Canberra travel to Melbourne. Adelaide starts its series off against the Bandits with a 7pm game tomorrow (Thursday), another game on Friday (7pm), a double-header on Saturday (3pm and 7pm) and the finale on Sunday (1pm).
