It was the Barossa which claimed a majority of the limelight at this year’s Qantas Australian Tourism Awards held on Friday night in Cairns. Two major operators secured the top awards in their categories, making them the only SA major winners. Seppeltsfield Vineyard Cottage celebrated its second consecutive national win for Australia’s best hosted accommodation. Jacob’s Creek Visitor Centre was awarded under best tourism wineries, distilleries and boutique breweries and the centre’s on-site restaurant Jacob’s Restaurant was awarded for best tourism restaurants and catering services. Proud to further mark the Barossa on the SA map are Jacob’s Creek Brand Sites manager Elaine Ratcliffe and Seppeltsfield Vineyard Cottage owner operator Sharyn Rogers.

Editorial I

t is time for someone to come out and say it - Australia is in the global financial crisis If it is not a major - it certainly is some sort of major financial struggle. Check your pockets and see if you agree. The politicians won’t say, and for some reason the mainstream media won’t say it, but Australians are really struggling financially. It is all well and good for staying positive

support for the South Australian Government. Report author Ms Christena Singh said business confidence in South Australia fell to the lowest level in the nation because of concerns about declining business and weak consumer spending. “There are now almost the same proportions of businesses in South Australia which are worried about their business prospects as there are businesses that are confident,” Ms Singh explained. Quite simply slower consumer spending is putting pressure on all businesses. But you can’t spend what you don’t have.

and the Herald is happy to push that line believing the glass is always half full. But let’s deal with the facts. How much disposable income do you have in your pocket? Do you still treat yourself or the kids to luxuries that you did two or three years ago? Times are tougher - that point can’t be argued. Pop into any business and see if their business is as buoyant as it was. To back our argument read the following. Business confidence has plummeted in South Australia during the quarter, according to the latest Sensis® Business Index, as has small and medium business

Mr Perry is keen for the company to be remembered for its positive contribution to the community. From its support of community and sporting clubs totalling hundreds of thousands of dollars over the 20 years, to the 35-plus apprentices it trained as its contribution to the local general economy. “It has been an extraordinary ride for myself through this time starting as a sole business to reaching the heights of winning national awards and employing 52 plus staff, only to ride the downturn since the global financial crisis to see the business close its doors today. “I will always have fond memories of what the business achieved and the wonderful friendships it formed along the way.”

the hold on the Barossa protection border is also hindering them. “The culture that we are used to, of having progress and go ahead, is certainly affecting businesses,” he said. “It’s a sting and has a frozen effect either directly or indirectly.” Mr Venning said he would be speaking directly with Planning minister John Rau to tell him to stop dithering over Barossa’s protection border. Meanwhile, Mr Perry expressed heartfelt thanks to his valuable and loyal customers. “I wish to sincerely thank you for your support over the many years,” he said. “Although every effort has been made to ensure minimal disruption to our clients I would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by the closing of the business. “Importantly, to all employees and especially to the large group with whom I have had the privilege of working for such a long time, I can only say we


A MAJOR Barossa provider of trade services has closed its doors. Perry Trade Services in Nuriootpa, which announced its decision yesterday, (Tuesday) is now under administration. The company, which ran for almost 20 years, employed 52 staff. Managing director Wayne Perry said the company had been working hard to restructure the business following the impact of the financial down turn. “Unfortunately due to the substantial resources required to restructure the business, we were beaten by time,” he said. The business is now on sale, in part or as a whole, through Macks Hall Clifton. News of the closure came as a shock to Member for Schubert Ivan Venning. Mr Venning said while the global financial crisis and down turn in the wine industry would play a big part in businesses like Perry’s closing, he believes

Mill fire Firefighters spent yesterday cleaning up after a blaze at Laucke Mill at Daveyston on Monday night.

The fire is believed to have started when grain on the conveyer crusher belt caught fire at about 6pm on Monday. A total of 50 firefighters from the MFS and CFS battled the blaze, bringing it under control by about

4am yesterday. Crews remained on the scene for most of the day, using thermal imaging to check for hot spots in the five-storey silo. Damage estimates were not available before the Herald’s deadline.

Culture connection A UNION of two cultures was celebrated with singing, dancing and authentic African food on Saturday evening in Eden Valley. It was the town’s Congregational Community Centre committee who extended an invitation to the Congolese people who now call Elizabeth their home. The committee also extended the invite to the wider Barossa community with about 300 people joining in on the unique occasion. Committee member John Herring, who described the mood of the evening as “electric”, said the town was still buzzing from the event on Sunday. He explained The Big Cat Walk fundraiser was organised for a couple of reasons. The town wanted to help raise money for the Salvation Army medical centre in Monrovia, Liberia and the committee were keen to welcome the Congolese people to their small country town. The event involved community groups providing visitors with a variety of African-made food including Mt Pleasant butchers supplying Africanmade sausages. Songs were presented by both Eden Valley singers, the African choir Pentecostal singers from Elizabeth East and Little Black Dress. A fashion parade of recycled clothing donated by the Tanunda’s Salvation Army shop provided extra colour for visitors. John said so far about $2500 was raised and will directly support their cause. He expressed thanks to all those involved including emcee Marina Teusner.

THE Gawler community will soon get to share ideas for the future of the town’s North and South Para rivers. Gawler Council will shortly hold a forum to give people who made submissions on the draft Gawler Urban Rivers Master Plan the chance to elaborate their ideas. Among the suggestions is the creation of a Town Centre Park, which would be made by redirecting the South Para River and joining Goose Island to Gawler.

While 10 formal submissions were made to council on the draft plan, those attending the forum will have the chance to put forward their comments and ideas for the future of the rivers. The Gawler Urban Rivers Project, which incorporates the master plan, aims to improve waterways in the town by protecting the rivers’ health, conserving biodiversity and providing an accessible parkland network.

Despite appealing to the state government for an opportunity to comment and review the amended documents prior to their release, council has not yet sighted them. Mayor Brian Hurn said council is disappointed with the state government’s approach.

Plans for the intersection’s proposed roundabout were endorsed by Gawler Council last Tuesday. It is expected a display of the plans will be available to the public by April to make it clear what changes are occurring. Service relocation

works at the site of the roundabout are scheduled for April and May, with initial construction set to follow soon after. Major work on the roundabout will begin in June or July and it is expected to be completed in December this year.

CHANGES to the Barossa protection legislation have still not been brought into effect, a month after they were announced. Speaking in parliament last week, Planning Minister John Rau said the amended legislation is expected to be introduced “probably within a month”. Member for Schubert Ivan Venning has criticised the government for the delay, saying Barossa businesses are suffering at the hands of the laws meant to protect the region. Mr Rau announced in February the Barossa Protection Bill and associated development plan amendment (DPA), originally introduced in September last year, had been changed. When announcing the amendments, Mr Rau said they would address concerns over unintended restrictions on “clearly appropriate development”. The current DPA classifies virtually all development in the Barossa protection area as noncomplying. According to Barossa Council, this has added an extra six to eight weeks to the assessment process, causing people to defer shed applications, and in turn hurting local manufacturers. Member for Schubert Ivan Venning has hit out at the state government

THIS woman’s smiling eyes and zest for life instantly touches all those she meets. Yet it’s hard to believe Jennette Mickan’s earlier years were not picture-perfect. The Kapunda woman (right) is just one of millions of women who tomorrow (Thursday) will be highlighted as part of International Women’s Day - an annual event that shines a spotlight on women to inspire and celebrate their achievements - big or small. Having lived an unfortunate childhood, Jennette made a decision as a young person she was going to have a good life. “I used to look in the mirror and think why me and now I think why not me,” she said. While Jennette says she could have chosen to dwell on her upbringing, she always knew there was more to life then feeling sorry for herself. With this in mind Jennette set about ‘finding out’. After leaving school in the 1970s she entered the air force. Jennette explained, ironically 75 per cent of those who entered the air force at that time were like her, from broken homes. “The air force was a place where people were seeking families,” she said. During this time Jennette met her first husband, and she said she was blessed with her first child. “I remember thinking I can’t believe someone would want to have a child with me. “It also made me realise, how can anyone hurt a child and not love a child?” Jennette said her marriage ended on amicable terms, with both still standing by their original agreement that their children would not suffer. Having faith that there was more life to embrace, in 1988 Jennette moved to Kapunda and soon immersed herself in the rural town’s way of life. Ever since she has juggled a big family and a list long of community activities, which she’s quick to say, “I soooo love”. Jennette is known for her singing with the band Eden and solo performances, and as a school chaplain. She has been involved in the Kapunda Musical Society for the past 23 years as a performer and in 2011 became president and ran the first ever Young People’s Drama Workshop, which now boasts 30 students. Jennette, who is a lay pastor with the Uniting Church, will soon become a religious celebrant which means she can officiate religious ceremonies including marriages and baptisms. She said the most rewarding job is being a wife, mum and grandparent. “And I have always had a very close relationship with my Dad and his wife.” Each day Jennette also makes time to thank God for allowing her to find solace in her community, which she believes is like one big family.

Clearing roadblocks

Recognition for farmers

By ROBERT LAIDLAW In life there are many hurdles and obstacles, but with awareness they become easier to navigate. That is why the ‘Dyslexia Action Group - Barossa, Gawler and Surrounds’ was formed to facilitate. Dyslexia is a reading disability caused by an affected person’s struggles to process graphic symbols, although they possess normal intelligence, and in many cases have an accentuated creative mind. In October last year a public meeting was held in Gawler, where the local group was formed, and on March 19 another will be held, from 7pm (registration at 6.45pm) at Gawler Tafe, 43 High Street, Gawler. “Our initial meeting raised the profile of this common learning disorder,” group spokesperson Dr Sandra Marshall said. “The most obvious positive outcome saw Immanuel Lutheran Primary School become a pilot school as a ‘dyslexia friendly school.’ Principal Mrs Sue De Biasi and deputy principal Mr Julian Helbig have been amazing. “They have consulted with SPELD (Specific Learning Difficulties Association) and made whole school changes, provided staff with professional development, and purchased phonic readers.” The “one shoe fits all” approach does not work, as children have different ways to learn, and this has now been catered for. Immanuel Lutheran Primary School has become a happy experience for dyslexic children, as they are now better understood and hence no longer ‘left behind’. With strong leadership and commitment to children, there is no reason why any school cannot become “dyslexia friendly” in a very short time.

TWO local members of parliament have led the charge in acknowledging 2012 as Year of the Farmer. Both Member for Schubert Ivan Venning and Member for Light Tony Piccolo have taken the opportunity to acknowledge farmers while speaking in parliament. Mr Venning, who has a strong background on the land, moved for parliament to recognise Year of the Farmer and the contribution agriculture provides to Australia. “It is about time that farmers received the recognition they deserve, especially from their city and metropolitan counterparts,” Mr Venning said. “Many take for granted that fruit and vegetables, grain and meats, are readily available on our supermarket shelves, without giving a thought about where the produce originated. “I sincerely hope that, through this year, the focus generated by the Australian Year of the Farmer helps lift the profile of those in agriculture.” Member for Light Tony Piccolo said he would like to acknowledge the phenomenal value of the agriculture industry to Australia. “I would like to pay tribute to all those farmers in my electorate, those people particularly who have come from overseas and who have adapted and farmed in this area,” Mr Piccolo said. “Light has a number of farmers; not only farmers in terms of crops – such as wheat farmers – but also many horticulture and viticulture specialists throughout the electorate.”

HELPING: Members of the Dyslexia Action Group are from left, Ophie Renner, Viv Wright, Kylie Fotheringham, Dr Sandra Marshall, Colleen Stevens, and Janice James-Valentine. “Another major outcome from the initial the end of reception affected children meeting is that we are now able to have usually fallen way behind, and need communicate with the education support, both within the school and at ministers at both state and federal level, home by their parents/carers. as we have the numbers to back us,” Dr This change requires a systematic Marshall continued. approach that is consistent from school to “Aims of our group include to support school, and will require extra funding, schools in the community, (staff and increased access to tutors and speech parents), and help make them aware of therapists, and continuing professional the latest developments in dyslexia development of all teachers in learning through communication networks, disorders. arrange general meetings to share and Speakers at the public meeting will be discuss aspects of dyslexia, and to Angela Weeks (director of SPELD), Julie explore and lobby for financial support Aschberger (director special education for schools and parents. for the Education Department), Kathryn “The most important issue is to identify Bruggeman (director of regional these kids at a young age so as to provide education of Barossa) and the shadow support to both the child and their family education minister David Pisoni. - to prevent them from failing.” People can help by attending the There are some warning signs for meeting and registering their interest. dyslexia, even at kindergarten level, Teachers are welcome to join the dyslexia including delayed speech, family history action group.

Get creative with Zac AN IMPROVISED performance featuring jazz, dance and painting, will be produced by former Barossa boy Zac Tyler during the Adelaide Fringe Festival. The performance, Unspoken Language, comes without script and involves the audience who will have a direct hand in guiding the artists. Zac, who now lives in Melbourne, returns to SA after studying abroad at Lasalle College of Performing Arts in Singapore. He will be joined by Sam Zerna, who is also a former Barossa boy and who now lives in Melbourne. Sam’s jazz ensemble will set the soulful tone as three contemporary dancers and a local abstract artist Grace Best, create performance in the moment. “I’ve always found it interesting as to where visual artists get their inspiration from,” Zac said. “I was curious to see if inspiration could be controlled and then presented in front of an audience, so in a way capturing the creative process. “That’s where the concept for Unspoken Language came from. “It has been a challenge to find performers who are prepared to take the risk and leave their comfort zone, experiment and create something new each night. But I have certainly found them now. “Like the audience, I will be excited to see the end result,” Zac said. Staged in Australian’s oldest purpose-built theatre, the Queen’s

Theatre in Adelaide’s West End, Unspoken Language takes the audience behind the scenes of the creative mind, inviting them to not just watch but decide on the direction of the performance. “The Queen’s Theatre perfectly encapsulates the raw nature of the performance,” he said. “The theatre is such an interesting space on its own, and its authentic feel will certainly influence the artist’s performance and will add to the overall experience.” For these local artists, participating in the Fringe has had such a powerful influence on their careers. It is an opportunity to showcase their work to not only many friends and family but to the many international and domestic artists attending the festival. “The ideals of the Fringe resonate with me,” Zac said. “It is not about the financial gain, it’s about artistic integrity. “It is a safe environment for artists to perform because we expect Fringe audiences to be open minded and appreciate experimental work.” Following the performance, the audience will have the option to meet the performers and purchase the artwork in an auction. The performance will be held on March 15 to 17 at The Queen’s Theatre on the corner of Gilles Arcade and Playhouse Lane in Adelaide. It kicks off from 7.30pm. Tickets are $22 for adults, $17 for concession and $15 for general.

Clean water precious I WAS reading the article entitled ‘Warren sports hit snag’ (Herald, February 22) and was relieved that using the Warren Reservoir to include swimmers and canoes had hit a snag, as clean water is precious, like liquid gold in Australia. Also, people have to drink that water to live, and the thought that canoes and swimmers could have been in the water prior to drinking it is very off putting to say the least. L J Emery Roseworthy Water safety I call on the State to more properly focus their regulation of personal water craft, commonly known as jet skis as well as other high speed power boats. I call for a total ban on alcohol consumption for all motor boat drivers, observers and skiers. I call for a ban on learner drivers using the most powerful vessels. And in addition to the restriction on jet skiers from certain areas, I call for swimmers and other water users to be restricted from access to some popular areas to be regularly or permanently set aside for jetskiing. There will be a knee jerk focus on jet skis due to the most recent fatality in NSW but this sort of accident where power vessels hit swimmers or drag their towed riders of inflatables into trees or other objects happen with regular monotony.

There is a consistent serious accident rate each year on the Murray and in the sea. The latest models of personal water craft each year become astonishingly and substantially more powerful. In South Australia, jet skis already have a registration fee much higher than comparable power boats on the basis their regulation requires greater effort and cost. Unfortunately the regulating authorities place their emphasis wrongly. Riders and drivers need to build skills before being given charge of the most powerful machines. There is a real justification for a total zero alcohol level at times when the riders and passengers wits need to be at their sharpest. But in addition more sensible regulation needs to be in place. There is a virtual total ban of jet ski operation in the surf zone of metropolitan beaches. Surely a flagged off zone could be set aside for jet ski use, with the zone being moved along the beach each day or week to ameliorate any annoyance. Perhaps a jetskier should be permitted to raise a flag on the beach, as a scuba diver does in open water, which requires for a limited period of time, an hour or two, other users to stay away. A knee jerk reaction that is simply more restrictive will not stop the law breakers. A well targeted but permissive regime needs to be in place. John Bolton Concordia

Online issue I have made my last purchase of goods online. Although I will continue to purchase services such as flights and hotels as I can see and print the details and confirmation of payment and have never had a problem when presenting the receipt or ticket. Goods are different. A computer battery that never worked. A pink ‘Hello Dolly’ backpack for a young girl that they took the money for, but only offered a black one, which I rejected. But they refused to refund my money (E-Bay effectively said “stiff cheese”). And the final straw, receiving nine packets of vitamins when I paid for 10. My complaint to the company elicited the following reply “...our records show that 10 items were sent out to in (sic) total. As a gesture of good will I will send you an additional mens (sic) Ultivite”. The insinuation is clear. I did not want what I paid for to be supplied as a “gesture of good will”, but as a right, so refused to take delivery and the post office sent it back. Never again.

good point to reflect on the reactions I have been hearing on the draft Basin Plan. The Authority has received numerous comments, suggestions and ideas from the range of public meetings, open house meetings, roundtable discussions and individual conversations that have been held with passionate and committed communities up and down the Basin. As a relatively new member of the Authority, I have been privileged to be a part of those conversations with the community. The breadth and depth of the knowledge and wisdom that exists in communities has been reconfirmed to me, and has been very useful and constructive to the Authority in the development of the Plan. It has also been a great opportunity for the Authority to provide greater detail on what is proposed in the draft Plan. Since it is a piece of draft legislation, we want to make sure that everyone understands it. Two significant issues we’ve heard from communities are about environmental water: how it will be recovered and how it will be used. How environmental water is recovered is critical to minimising social and economic impacts. It is for this reason that the Authority has been so vocal in supporting a bias towards water recovery through irrigation efficiency projects, over buying water entitlements. The Authority also sees opportunities for water savings through making changes to current river operation rules and investing in infrastructure to deliver water to the environment more efficiently. Changing river operations requires all communities and governments to work together – a big challenge when considering our past 100 years of history.

However, if these investments and changes are made, they will be reflected in the Basin Plan and could reduce the amount of water that needs to be recovered for the environment. While water recovery is important for managing social and economic impacts, how environmental water is used is critical to maximising environmental outcomes. For this reason, the Authority has developed an environmental watering plan to guide and prioritise water use. I know there have been criticisms of a perceived lack of detail in the environmental watering plan, but we need to remember that the Basin Plan is a legislative instrument. If we were to legislate how much water is to be delivered, and where and when, it would prevent a flexible and adaptive approach to environmental water use and would deny the opportunity for local input. Localism is something communities have asked for and it is the approach we have taken in the Basin Plan. What has been particularly pleasing to me is the recognition by all that something needs to be done. There might be differences on how we achieve our goals, but there is general recognition of the need for the Basin Plan. Certainly states and communities remain at the table. In the end, the Basin Plan will not be a decision for the Authority, but rather a decision for the Australian Parliament. So for anyone interested in the future of the Basin’s rivers and the communities that depend upon them, I encourage you to get involved and have your say.

IT’S just three sleeps until the Tanunda Show comes alive with all things Barossa. The Saturday event means plenty to see and do for young and old. This year the show committee welcomes the Road Show which highlights the Australian Year of the Farmer and also a special cooking contest for children with judging by 2011 MasterChef contestant and Barossa man John Hughes. The hall always seems to be the hub of the show as it’s full of homemade produce and handiwork and people keen to check out if they placed a prize or general onlookers. The show hall is closed for judging from 9am to about 11.30am. Remember to take a look behind the show hall as convenors have worked hard to highlight the animal sections of pigeons, poultry, sheep, children’s animals and more. The show couldn’t go without the usual rides and sideshow alley for children. Of course show snacks such as donuts, fairy floss, other show treats and refreshments will be on tap. Fritz Sandwich will perform a variety of tricks, there will be a story and craft at about 10.45am near the entertainment tent and James the Tartan Trickster will present a magic show. For the grown ups, take time to check out Magpie Café. Located in the football clubrooms is a place where you can sit back and relax with Barossa food and wine. All the produce is donated from local businesses and individuals with the menu including meats, smallgoods, cheese, bread, chutneys and mustards, picked vegetables and salad greens. The Magpie Café is kindly sponsored by Dandelion Vineyards. The show attractions of log chopping, horses in action, hand-milking and Kegel Bahn’s come-and-try lessons will be also on. Admission prices are adults $7, pensioners $5, children five to 16 years $2 and children under five are free. Gates open to the public from 8.30am. The show is sponsored by a variety of regional businesses and individuals and major sponsors are Rockford Winery.

Environmental focus NEW mining and environmental procedures for Penrice’s Angaston mine have been approved. The company has received state government approval for its Mine Operating Plan/Programs for Environmental Protection and Rehabilitation (MOP/PEPR) procedures for the next seven years. These procedures detail the mining practices the company will employ to achieve environmental outcomes from a best-practice perspective with specific reference to the surrounding area. Managing director and chief executive officer of Penrice, Guy Roberts, said the approvals were significant for the future of the company, the Angaston operations

and employment in the area. “Penrice is committed to minimising the environmental impact of its operations at Angaston and will continue to engage with the local community on all aspects of its operations,” he said. “The Angaston operation – with its limestone mine and a significant supplier of industrial minerals and civil products – is an integral part of Penrice’s future and continues to take increasing prominence with its supplies to a wide range of customers. “New business achieved in recent months includes the contract to supply civil products to the South Road Superway, a major road project currently under construction in Adelaide, South Australia.”

Road responsibilities faced A TOUGH lesson on the shocking realities of road trauma has left a lasting impression on Nuriootpa High School’s senior students. The students were recently involved in the RAA’s Street Smart initiative, which works to provide SA’s young people with the harsh realities of road safety and facts. The event has been organised in response to South Australia’s youth road toll. The students joined with about 4000 other students from schools across the state, with a unique opportunity to witness a fatal road crash simulation with emergency service personnel.

Street Smart provides valuable lessons for young people and potentially lifesaving messages. In addition to the crash simulation, students heard from V8 Supercar driver Shane Van Gisbergen, who talked about safe driving on the road, and former South Australian rally driver Ed Ordynski, who highlighted the importance of vehicle safety features, a 5-star ANCAP rating and good quality, well maintained tyres. Did you know? According to RAA, road crashes are the leading cause of death for people under the age of 25.

Each year about 8,700 drivers aged between 16 and 24 are involved in a crash. Often this is caused by avoidable behaviours like inattention, speeding and failing to give way. RAA added young lives, which are lost on our roads, leave a heartbreaking impact on family, and friends and their community.

Right out of the box IN ONE home at Earlwood in New South Wales, dynamic design is simplicity itself. There wouldn't be too many families with three children and an exuberant labrador who could live in a minimalist house complete with white walls and surfaces. However, Gayle and Darren Macbeth with Montana, 13, Callan, 10, and Darci, 8, do so with serenity in their new Earlwood house, built to replace a failing 1920s cottage. “A lot of people are scared of a minimalist environment and offer suggestions about what we could do with our bare walls,” Gayle says of their home. “But close friends walk in and comment, ‘Gosh, this is so you and Darren.’ It works for us and we live better without the chaos of clutter.” When they first approached architect Neil Mackenzie, the couple requested ‘a big white box’. “Neil used this as a starting point but modified our ideas so that the house would be sympathetic to its neighbours,” Darren says. Mackenzie adds that the resultant cubic design is simple yet dynamic. “With its abstract elements, the house sits comfortably - albeit slightly defiantly - in its suburban streetscape,” he says. The front elevation features fibrecement panels treated to a light, warm-grey Murobond cement paint. This contrasts with the dramatic, darker roof of charcoal-stained, lightweight plywood cladding. “The roof wraps down and brackets the living spaces, holding and cantilevering them above the cedarclad base,” the architect says. The different exterior surfaces are

temptingly tactile. Walking to the back of the house, Darren runs his hands over the plywood walls. “The feel is grainy and sand-like,” he says before moving to the building's southern side, where an expanse of grooved plywood wall is, unexpectedly, rough-sawn rather than smooth finished. Being close to its neighbours, the house has been designed to look inward in order to enclose its private spaces. With a sunken garage below, the open-plan kitchen and living-dining areas on the ground floor directly access a loggia, garden and pool through glass sliders. Up the blackbutt stairs - a favourite impromptu family gathering spot - a walkway on the first level opens to four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a breakaway kids' music/study area next to the landing. From the western end of the passage is a sight line right through to the window in Montana's front bedroom and out across district views. On the grey day Domain visited, the house was infused with light. A bank of highlight louvre windows - dubbed ‘the snorkel’ by the couple - faces north and funnels light down into the ground floor living spaces while also providing ventilation. This elevation also has slot and highlight windows to ensure privacy while maximising northern light. The south has few windows while the eastern street frontage features a composition of smaller aluminiumframed windows. “In the old house, we had to have lights on 24/7. Now we almost need sunnies on inside,” Gayle quipped.

Spend tonight with Aussie comedian Kevin Wilson DESCRIBED as one of the funniest singer/songwriters of Australia, tonight (Wednesday) Kevin Bloody Wilson performs in the Barossa. His Goin’ Bush tour, featuring special guest Australia’s own Jenny Talia makes camp at the Barossa Arts and Convention Centre with tickets still available. His songs are as unique as the man himself, with an insight and sing-along quality that appeals to all ages and races. They completely cross international boundaries and cultural backgrounds. You’re bound to recognise either yourself or someone you know in a Kevin Bloody Wilson song. His songs are not written with saccharin-sweetened ink and they sound as they are meant to sound. His humour is as hard and dry as his outback heritage. The Kevin Bloody Wilson story started in

his hometown of Kalgoorlie with Kev simply performing self-penned compositions for his mates and buddies in bar rooms, pool halls and pubs. In just a few short years, and largely by word of mouth, Kev now plays to sell-out concert venues worldwide. His bar stool philosophies, humour and values have translated instantly and readily from those early outback beginnings to the world’s most prestigious venues, including Las Vegas and the London Palladium, and have earned him hundreds and thousands of loyal fans. For ticket prices and further details, contact Barossa Arts and Convention Centre on 8561 4299.

Blast from the past The public is invited to be part of this unique show on Saturday, March 31. Bring along a picnic supper with tables reserved on request. Wines will be served by Whistler Wines, and coffee, tea and dessert by Ai Made It. Tickets are $30 available from the Barossa Music Centre, Tanunda, or phone Vicki on 0417 084 191.

Take a trip down memory lane FOR fans of Marilyn Monroe be sure to secure tickets to The ‘M’ Girl. The show will be held at the Barossa Arts and Convention Centre on Wednesday, March 14. It stars Dolly Lee, who uncannily portrays the role of Marilyn, with Kim Clark as Richard Meryman, the life journalist who was the last person to conduct an interview with Marilyn. Experience the journey of how ‘The M Girl’ became a star, exploring Marilyn’s frustrations of not being taken seriously as an actor and her determination to achieve perfection. Dolly wears authentic copies of Marilyn’s most famous gowns.

The show features archival footage and many of the songs that made Marilyn famous. Be prepared to be taken on a rollercoaster ride of emotions and memories as ‘Marilyn’ performs at 11am, with morning tea at 10.30am. The Barossa Arts and Convention Centre Matinee Program has been running for several years and has proven to be popular. Although a short series in 2012, the programing has been more selective. Dolly Lee presented ‘Dolly is Doris’ in 2011 and was very well received So, if you are looking for another great morning out then phone 8561 4299.

Endangered species By BARRY PARK


THERE are some classic pieces of motoring machinery that are not long for this world. My favourite car was a Chrysler VC Valiant I bought for the princely sum of $1000 from the son of an auto electrician. Obviously the son and his old man were not on talking terms because I still had to occasionally crank the engine by shorting out the starter motor when I wanted to fire the longstroke slant six into life. That aside, there was a bit of that car I just adored - the foot-operated high-beam dip switch. Driving the sweeping, moon-dappled country roads at night introduced the driver's equivalent of a mad St Vitus dance as my left foot explored what was left of the somewhat rusted-out firewall, cloaked in its crudely cut carpet ripped out of someone's house, by the looks of it - for the dipper in the face of oncoming traffic. The modern-day car just can't replicate that satisfying ‘click-click’ of the foot-operated dip switch. Nowadays, it's a gentle flick of the indicator stalk that, while a lot more convenient, is a lot less satisfying.

But it's not just that dip switch. Many more once-common sights, forms and functions are slowly disappearing from the radar with the advent of the modern motor car. Here's our pick of them. Wind-up windows: In the old days, before the magic button, car windows used to go up and down via a handle you had to rotate. Spare tyres: Fuel economy hangs like the sword of Damocles over one of the few things the bean counters haven't got their hands on yet. Spare tyres add weight. Weight increases fuel use. Therefore, car makers reckon in the interests of saving a cupful of fuel between refills we should be happy with a can of goo and an air compressor. Car keys: The key ring for my much-loved VC Valiant consisted of one large key for the driver's door and ignition, another one for the boot, one for the fuel cap and yet another funny little one to pop out the stub of the radio antenna if it was fully retracted. Keys these days can alternatively flip, fold, unlock and allow cars to start wirelessly, or look like a work of art. Individual keys can even set up the driver's seat for different people, remembering the settings in their tiny electronic brains.

HOW DO I ENTER? For your chance to WIN a Tyre & Wheel Package Voucher worth $1000, thanks to Bridgestone Select Nuriootpa & the Herald, simply get your hands on an entry form & keep an eye out for the 12 scrambled words in our fortnightly Drive (Motoring Section) over the coming weeks.


Features that have already disappeared 1. Pop-up headlights: They were all the rage in the '80s but aerodynamics, complexity and aesthetics killed them off. 2. Antennas: The days of pop-up antennas are long gone, with shark fin or stubby whip antennas now the norm. They're increasingly being built into windows. 3. Cassette Decks: Usually you have to buy a fairly old secondhand car to get one. Or a new Lexus. 4. Shakers and air filters: Direct fuel injection has killed off the carburettor. It also killed off the visual dressing associated. 5. Chokes: The era of automatic chokes means there's no wrestling with cold idle speeds - or finding the engine racing at the traffic lights because you've forgotten to push the choke in. 6. Four-wheel steering: Once seen as a great way to improve handling and make parking easier but these days it's a victim of cost cutting and weight reduction. 7. Touch-up paint: Remember when you used to get the tiny tin of paint for any dings or scrapes? It's succumbed to the bean counters, who have discovered it didn't sell any more cars and cost a few bucks. 8. Bench seat: The demise of the bench seat has meant snuggling up to the driver has passed into motoring folklore. 9. Temperature gauge: Remember when there used to be a separate gauge for water and/or oil temperature? These days it's usually a warning light - blue for cold, red for hot. 10. Lap-only seatbelts: It's a sad reflection that local design rules still allow these but, thankfully, no major manufacturers uses them.


The first 3 scrambled words are: 1. OFRSEENIT 2. NURAZAT 3. EZOTPAN

Cool coupe meets smart hatch

Wheels & Tyres Great Value From $65 EXCITING: The new Hyundai Veloster and Veloster Plus. Third door Veloster combines the style of a coupe and the functionality of a hatchback, while also incorporating an additional kerb-side door. Hyundai’s fresh take implements a conventionally hinged rear (third) door on the kerb-side of the Veloster, providing safe and ready access to the surprisingly spacious rear seats. The kerb-side rear door handle is hidden to maintain an uncompromised visual flow. Interior The Veloster’s commanding exterior is echoed with a powerful and poised in-cabin environment.

Inside, the centre stack fascia and controls resemble a sport bike fuel tank with air vents inspired by motorcycle tailpipes and a floor console mirroring the seat of a bike. The interior is finished with modern metallic-look accents around the centre console, door handles, air vents and gear stick. The Supervision Instrument Cluster (Veloster plus models), featuring Hyundai’s signature blue back-lighting, provides greater clarity for the driver while a large centre display (blue/white dot matrix) provides a wide array of trip information for the driver.

HYUNDAI Motor Company Australia has launched the latest addition to the Hyundai range – the all-new Veloster, further demonstrating Hyundai’s philisophy of “New Thinking. New Possiblities.” The Veloster challenges conventional design theories, offering a unique forward-hinged third door for easy rear-seat access located on the passenger side of the car and a single door on the driver’s side. The Veloster echoes the company’s ‘fluidic design’ language and marries the style of a coupe with the functionality of a hatchback. Veloster offers an exciting alternative in the sports-car segment. Featuring the latest Hyundai advanced technologies, Veloster balances comfort, space safety and fuel efficiency with a focus on fun. Design concept The Veloster’s unique design takes inspiration from a highperformance sport bike. Distinctive black A-pillars give the glass a motorcycle helmet visor appearance, while at the front an aggressive interpretation of Hyundai’s signature hexagonal front grille and bonnet scoop detailing complete the look. In profile the Veloster features “fluidic sculpture” character lines, muscular wheel arches, body colour door handles and mirrors, and wraparound headlights and taillights. Veloster’s dynamic rear design has a distinctive glass hatch, dual centre chrome exhaust tips, and black lower fascia complementing the assertive front fascia.

Key features of the all-new Veloster range • All-new Gamma 1.6-litre four-cylinder gasoline direct injection (GDI) engine • All-new six-speed double-clutch transmission (DCT) developed by Hyundai • Fuel economy from 6.4l/100km (combined) and CO2 rating of 151 g/km* • Australian tuned suspension and steering • 5-star ANCAP safety rating • Six airbags across the range • Vehicle stability management (VSM) with electronic stability control (ESC) and traction control system (TCS) • Tyre pressure monitoring system • Daytime running lamps (DRL) • Automatic dusk sensing headlamps • Cruise control • ‘Dimension’ premium audio system featuring four speakers, two tweeters, centre speaker, sub-woofer, external amplifier and AUX/USB input • 7" LCD touch screen with DivX MP3 CD player and AM/FM radio tuner • Rear view camera (integrated into 7" LCD) • Rear park assist • Front and rear passenger side power windows • Push button start with proximity smart key (Veloster + models)

Community News Tabor Women’s Fellowship TABOR Women’s Fellowship held celebrations for their 75th anniversary at the Tabor church service on January 29, with Pastor David Gogoll as liturgist, Martin Beales as organist and former Pastor John Wilksch as guest preacher. Pastor Wilksch highlighted our human need to feel honoured and important but stressed that true status comes from our service to God through serving others. Tabor Women’s Fellowship has served the local and wider community for 75 years in various ways. Another former pastor Les Auricht spoke of the rich kaleidoscope of service by women through 75 years and encouraged the present women to ‘hang in there’ in service to God and others. A delicious community lunch was served in Tabor hall. The anniversary birthday cake was titled ‘To God Be The Glory’. Candles were lit by Lorraine Parish and fanned out by Irma Georg with the cake being cut by Melva Pursche. President Daph Schmidt presented Pastor Wilksch with a thank you basket. A booklet prepared by Jenny Schubert detailing the history of Tabor Women’s Fellowship 19372012 was available.

Tanunda WAB The first meeting for 2012 of the Tanunda branch of Women in Agriculture and Business was held at the Tanunda Lutheran Home, in order to meet with the four associate members who reside there and would otherwise be unable to attend. All were welcomed and birthdays of two of the ladies, Mavis Schulz and Heather Pullen, were acknowledged. Correspondence at the meeting came from state president Jan Gregson and regional councillor Margaret Craigie, wishing all branch members a good year ahead. Suggestions were submitted re the future of the state conference, in view of the fact government funding has been curtailed. Thought for the day, given by Doreen Anderson, was, “If at the end of the day you feel dog tired, maybe it’s because you growled all day.” The poem “Tired”, read by Margaret Craigie, fitted in well with that quote. A nice afternoon tea was enjoyed by all present. There was much reminiscing about WAB, and everyone enjoyed seeing photos and hearing about Doreen Anderson’s trip to Bali to meet her new daughter-in-law. Next meeting will feature Japan, the WAB country of study.

Barossa Museum The Barossa Museum is thankful to have received through the History Trust a grant to fit safety film to the windows of the Museum in Tanunda. This film eliminates ultra violet light as well as strengthening the glass against vandalism. The Trust is sorry to see that the tenant of the shop in the Museum building; Marie Linke trading as Collective Barossa is about to leave the premises. Thus the shop is available for rent to a suitable tenant. The rental is low, however the tenant is required to act as caretaker for the museum and open it to the public. Members of the Trust recently assisted Kateryna Katzman of the University of Adelaide who is doing a Linguistic Research project into Barossa German. Her supervisors are Dr. Peter Mickan, Principal Supervisor and the program Manager of Postgraduate Studies, Discipline of Linguistics at the University of Adelaide, and Prof. Peter Mühlhäusler, Co-Supervisor, Discipline of Linguistics at the University of Adelaide. Dr. Peter Mickan spent some of his childhood in the Ebenezer area of the Barossa. Dr. Anitta Maksymowicz, curator of the Museum in Zielona Gora, Poland, (formerly Grünberg in Silesia) is visiting Australia in March- April. At her Museum she arranged an exhibition regarding the people who emigrated from her area in the 19th Century to Australia. As well she has published a booklet telling their story. While in Australia she will be a speaker at the Genealogy congress in Adelaide as well as speaking at several other meetings. One of these will be held at the Langmeil Centre, Tanunda on Wednesday April 18 at 7.30 p.m. Her topic will be 19th Century village life in her home region plus grapegrowing and winemaking in the Grünberg region. All are welcome to attend. While in the Barossa she will gather material for a new book she is writing about the lives of the emigrants from her area and their descendants in Australia.

FIRST starter Pharomac showed great heart to overcome difficulties and grab a photo-finish win in the Bridge Carpet Court Maiden (900m) at Murray Bridge on Sunday. Trained at Kildalton Park by Tony McEvoy and ridden by stable apprentice Jake Toeroek, Pharomac ($2.25 fav) scored by a short half head. Toeroek found himself running up behind the leaders on the colt with no clear run at the 200 metre mark but then was able to find a gap. As he drove the twoyear-old colt through, Pharomac appeared to baulk at the whip waved by the jockey on the inside runner before knuckling down to grab a narrow win. “I think he is a city class galloper and what he did today vindicated that opinion,” McEvoy said. “Early on, I think Jake got caught a bit by surprise and was left behind in the run down the hill giving away a bit of a start to the leaders.But Pharomac answered the hard riding in the straight.” The winner is by Dane Shadow and cost only $11,000 at a Gold Coast sale and is owned by Wayne Mitchell’s Pipeliner Bloodstock Syndicate.

HONOUR: Jake Jarvis named an All-Star.

By ROBERT LAIDLAW GAWLER Rangers Baseball Club’s under 14 team lost 7-12 against GGCD Dodgers in last Sunday’s knockout semi-final. After a slow start the Rangers trailed 0-4, but scored a run in the bottom of the third inning on Zac Allen’s double and two runs in the fourth Chris Mayfield’s single the highlight - to close within a single run. But the Dodgers scored eight runs over the next two frames to lead 12-5 going into the seventh and final inning. Jake Jarvis pitched well to strikeout two hitters to restrict the Dodgers to no runs and give Gawler one last chance to get back into the game. Ben Mayfield walked and scored on Jarvis’ hit, who came around on a wild pitch to reduce the margin to five runs, but that is where the charge was halted. Another Gawler junior has earned representative honours, with Jake Jarvis selected in the Little League North All-Stars. In Little League, Gawler Rangers remained top of the table after beating Woodville on forfeit, while Gawler’s Minors scored five last inning runs to snatch an exciting 15-14 victory over Port Adelaide. Gawler scored the maximum five runs in all three innings, Hunter Powell’s huge three-run home run in the first frame and Wyatt Ryan’s three hits the highlights. In Gawler Slow Pitch, SA Nomads and TGI Friday have qualified for the grand final, which will be played this Friday at 8pm, following the third-place game between White Pointers and Gawler Rangers at 7.15pm.

Under 14 GGCD Dodgers 0 1 3 0 4 4 0 - 12 Gawler Rangers 0 0 1 2 2 0 2 -7 Hits: Chris Mayfield 2, James Bergen 2, Geoffrey Barraclough 2, Zac Allen, Jake Jarvis, Ethan Ly.

FREELING’S Sarah Mitchell and her Big Bear Racing Team continue to impress. Sarah, South Australia’s only female competitor racing HQ Holdens, topped off a big year during 2011 by receiving the ‘Best Presented Car’ trophy recently at the Sporting Car Club. She had only just sat down with her trophy, when she was called back to the stage to also receive the ‘Best Presented Team’ trophy. The two trophies will sit alongside Sarah’s previous ‘encouragement’ trophies. Other achievements for Sarah during 2011 include a substantial fundraiser for Arthritis SA, representing the HQ racing register at the All Holden Day at Glenelg and her highly polished HQ

Holden race car being used to represent the motorsport category on Wikipedia. Sarah calls her 40-year-old car ‘Miss 202’ as homage to the six-cylinder red motor in her silver Kingswood. “We are regulated to use the standard three-speed gearbox and so I just love the growl of the exhaust when pushing hard through the corners” Sarah said. “It really does sound like a hungry bear.” Sarah and her awardwinning HQ Holden race car can be seen in action at Mallala throughout the year as well as competing at Collingrove Hillclimb. Fans can also follow Sarah on her facebook page ‘Big Bear Racing and Motorsports’ on the internet.

Barossa and Light cricket


By MIKE TEAKLE SOUTH Gawler started their final match of the season posting an impressive 272 against top side Gawler Central. Nathan Bartsch (71), Shane O’Donoghue (49) and David Golder (43) provided the bulk of the runs in the middle order while Andrew Frackowski was the best of the bowlers, taking 4/24 from five overs. Nuriootpa bowlers Daniel Doecke (5/23) and Greg Henschke (4/23) tore through Gilbert Valley (105) and look set to propel the Tigers (2/38) to a win next week. Angaston knocked Tanunda over in quick fashion (102) before setting up a shot at outright points by hitting 2/60 by the end of play on day one. Kapunda recovered from 2/8 to reach 196 in their clash with Sandy Creek and the Cockatoos will need a miracle if they are to leapfrog Kapunda into fourth spot. In A1 Reserves, Light Pass (201) have put themselves in prime position to claim the minor premiership on the back of 72 by Sean Schrapel and 37 from Richard Mattner. Greenock (9/219 dec) piled on the runs against Eudunda Robertstown with Craig Dahlenberg (72) and Greg Loffler (36) getting the job done. Freeling (212) are in a strong position against Lyndoch after Rob Montgomery (56) and Adam Clay (74) put Lyndoch’s bowlers to the sword. In the A2s there were a few surprises as Angaston’s Craig Doecke, promoted from his usual 10 or 11 position in the batting order, opened the innings and blasted 86, reaching double figures for just the second time this season not due to a lack of batting ability, rather a lack of opportunity with Doecke recording seven ‘did not bats’ and three ‘not outs’. His younger brother Shane continued the trend by hitting 60 in the middle order to push the score to 222. At Stockwell, Gawler Central opener Peter Cameron hammered 94 in the clash with Light Pass. It was a run feast for Sandy Creek (6/327) at South Gawler with the top six all getting a start. Jamie Hartwell (72), Nathan Gum (59) and Simon Koch (53) were the leading performers with the Cockatoos all but certain of collecting a win next week.

Ladies:The ladies got rained out but some of the brave troopers managed to get in nione holes so the comp was reduced to a nine hole comp with the winner being Marion Bow with 15 points and earning her the title of mud lark. Thursday: Midweek player Dave Rogers triumphed with 40 pts on c/b from the luckless Ian George. Next in line was the in-form Terry Byrnes with 39.

Ball winners; R McNamara 37, S Francas 36. Birdie balls; W Chaplin, J Fowler. KAPUNDA After a good soaking during the week conditions were near perfect for last week’s Lower North Hire monthly medal stroke round. It was also the last of 12 opportunities to get a berth in the Paul McCarthy Gold Medal competition to be held in conjunction with April’s monthly medal. There were a few early starters and James Kerrigan made sure he put paid to anyone pinching his prize. When the pm players turned up and saw a nett 65 as the score to beat the pressure was off and it was a matter of going out and enjoying the day. Well done James and a thoroughly well deserved trophy. For the rest of the field it was a matter of do what you can to claim a grade prize or maybe a ball. New member Dave Carson had a very good 71 to claim the A grade just ahead of Sal Hambour and Mark Pettigrew. Michael Watson shot a 75/73 which made it difficult to justify his claim of being “just” a five or six handicapper. John Sheppard also finished with a nett 73. The B grade was won by another relatively new member and Damian Burgess also fired a nett 71 ahead of Mick Hennessey’s 73. The C grade was an interesting bunch with little “precious” Al Sherrah the main man with his nett 75 just the one in front of Jim Wilson. Of the few fillies who ventured out it was Tine Perry who led the way. The Perrys had a big day with Dave also winning one of the encouragement awards. I think Teo Symons may have to rethink his expectations after boasting to his playing partners on the first hole that he was in for an 80 off the stick that day. It would have been a huge pb and needless to say Teo struggled to a score that didn’t match it even in the nett category. Don’t despair Teo, I’m sure there will be some payback stories to tell involving your playing partners in the near future.

Captain Scottie and Chef of the day Boo Menzel had an “indifferent” day on the course playing in a skins side event that didn’t go entirely to plan. I think maybe Brian may have had his mind on the roast pork feast he was cooking for the hordes. Scottie had a few of his own golfing demons to contend with but I’m sure it will all sort itself out before next week’s round. Speaking of the roast, an appreciative crowd of about 50 enjoyed a magnificent feast of perfectly cooked pork. Two and three helpings were the order of the day. Another job well done by Boo and the ladies who provided the vegies to go with it. For those unfortunate souls who missed out, be sure to get your tickets early next time. During the night President Craig presented “honorary” membership to several members who have contributed something extra to the club in recent years. Tony Holding, James Kerrigan and Chris Pfitzner are certainly worthy recipients to have their fees paid for the next 12 months. To finish up the proceedings Ian “Poppa” Watson got everyone off their feet with a couple of little games and I must congratulate Keith Alexander, who had won an encouragement award earlier for his round of golf, for being such a good sport in the equestrian cross country event. Well done Keith. This week we are up for another stroke round for the Bronte Kassulke Airconditioning trophy. Results: nett - J Kerrigan 65, D Burgess, D Carson, M Orvad 71, M Pettigrew, G Hambour 72, M Watson, M Hennessy, J Shephard 73, Y Scheer, J Higgins 74, G Higgins, H Murray, W Strangward, A Sherrah 75, A Hayter, J Wilson, M McCarthy, I Watson, J Lindblad, M Fiddes 76.

FEVER is Adelaide’s newest party band and they will be at Globe Derby Park on Saturday, March 10. As part of the enjoyment of the Gawler Harness Racing Club’s Cup night, Fever will be keeping the crowd entertained between races. And the good news is that patrons can reach fever pitch for free with no admission fee for the meeting. The seven-piece outfit plays the best songs from the 70s, 80s, soul, and dance songs through to today’s hits. With most members having 20 years experience in the music scene, Fever was formed mid-2008 with artists from popular Adelaide bands and performers from the Night Train Theatre. Fever generates a fantastic sound and along with a professional stage

presence can get any crowd dancing. The band features Eddie, Renae and Christine on vocals who can wind up a crowd and their energetic performance is entertaining to watch as they work the dance floor and tear up the stage. The other members of the band consist of Mitch on drums, Dave on guitar, Phil on keyboards and Rob on bass. Together they produce a full live sound from screaming guitar to those classic 80s keyboard sounds. Gawler Cup patrons won’t have to wait to the ‘Midnight Hour’ to ‘Must Mustang Sally’ or ‘Shake your tail feather’ because it has been ‘Signed sealed delivered’ that Fever will ‘Treat her right’ with ‘Funky music’ in a ‘Time warp’ at the Gawler Cup night.

GAWLER Harness Racing Club president Peter Bain is hoping to grab one of the features events on the club’s Gold Cup night at Globe Derby Park on Saturday, March 10. Bain will be starting Hilltop Raider in the $10,000 Lyndoch Motors Gawler Derby (2230m) for three-year-olds. With a lifetime record of nine wins and five placings from 18 starts, Hilltop Raider has proved himself one of the state’s best of his age. Finishing no further back than fifth, the gelding finished unlucky second in the SA St Leger in early January, before not having a lot of luck when fifth in the SA Derby. He has been driven in the majority of his races by Bain’s son Aaron. “I believe if he had got out 10 metres earlier in the St Leger he could have won,” Aaron said.

“Dad has had the Gawler Derby as a goal for several months and we are very happy with his fitness. “I had hoped to race him on Monday but the races didn’t hold up so we gave him a solid trial on Sunday.” But the Lyndoch Motors Gawler Derby will be no soft snap as Hilltop Raider’s main rivals Fistfullofdollars and Artichoke are set to run.

AFTER one of the most tightest finishes to a minor round season, the top four in Division One lawn bowls was finally decided on the weekend. A brilliant Lyndoch swatted away Angaston’s challenge to secure fourth place. The Dockers’ 96-73 win was achieved in what in what basically was an early elimination final. Lyndoch loom as a threat to the other three finals’ teams Freeling, Nuriootpa and Tanunda. They had good wins over both Tanunda and Freeling in the second half of the season and are a real chance against Tanunda at Tanunda in the first semi-final. Freeling’s 118-67 win over Eudunda saw

them clinch the minor premiership. In Division Two, the only sure thing is that Nuri will have one team in the grand final by virtue of their teams finishing first and second. Angaston Blue and Tanunda White will clash in the knockout first semi. In Division Three, Nuriootpa Gold and Kapunda Red square off in the second semi while Kapunda Black and Tanunda contest the first semi. In the Ladies, Nuri, Kapunda, Eudunda and Angaston comprise the final four while in the mid-week competition everything hinges on this Thursday’s final round. Fifth-placed Freeling is still a chance to finish third if one, or both of the Nuri sides above them, falter. WH1797682

BEWARE the Nuriootpa Tigers in 2012. Nat Salter’s team has several big additions to counter the losses of Jarrad Tregenza and Tim Gogoll (Walkerville), Tom Hamilton (Eastern Park) and Craig Taylor (Hamley Bridge). The Tigers have recruited well, picking up Ryan and Jarrad Byrne (both tall key position players) along with centre half forward Sam Haniford from North Adelaide and Broadview. “This will easily be the tallest side I’ve ever played with,” Salter said. “I’m pretty happy with where we’re at.” “I’m sure a couple of the young guys can step up,” Tregenza said. “Tim and I have taken a few of them under our wings over the last few years.” Tregenza said his work and living situation was the reason behind the move.


“I live full time in Adelaide and this year I’ll be working away quite a bit (Olympic Dam) and Walkerville is just five minutes from where I live. “No-one would be happier than me if Nuri have a successful season. I’ll still try to get along to a few games.”

THE call was made on Friday afternoon as the winds looked pretty good in the morning. The response was dull to say the least, “Na mate I just really want to sleep in tomorrow”. There was a change of heart and we hit the road at 3.30am the next morning. There has been a window of opportunity with the shallow water snapper lately and that is the magic hour in between first light and sun rise. We stopped at Port Wakefield for a coffee and continued a little further down the coast road to our chosen boat ramp. As we exited the mangrove channel the water was a little choppy but looked good. It took a short run out to pick a spot to anchor. Sani had yet to catch the elusive big one as the fish always seem to find my line first. The look on his face said it all when 10 minutes after

we anchored up my rod solidly loaded up and started losing line. A solid snapper of 81cm was expertly netted by the usual net man (Sani). and I was off to a great start. Another good snapper nailed my bait a short while later and I was on again. Sani was not happy. The sun was rising in the east and the sea was almost like glass. I was a little worried as the window of opportunity was drawing to a close so a quick move was in order and we pulled the anchor. Never say never as a couple of minutes at the next location and Sani’s bait was slammed. After a long spirited fight a thumping great snapper could be seen coming up from the depths. It really is an awesome sight. As with tradition, he who laughs last, laughs the hardest, as I netted his 83cm fish. Not bad really for a first snapper. Tight lines until next week.


Step up to marathon THE SA Road Runners Club has decided to introduce a marathon to its popular event in May. The decision follows from the success of the Jacob’s Creek Barossa Half Marathon. SA Road Runners president, Terry Leach, said the club had been thinking about this for some time. “After last year, when we had nearly 1000 participants in the 5k, 10k and 21.1k events, we knew it was time to take the plunge,” Terry said. “There has been strong interest in the event, with enquiries being fielded from overseas and interstate even before entries have opened.” Everyone is invited to participate in the inaugural Jacob’s Creek Barossa Marathon on May 27. While only one per cent of people will ever run the full distance of 42.2km, the day will include 5km, 10km and half marathon events for runners and walkers. To assist Barossans to get ready for the event, the SA Road Runners Club will be providing a 10-week ‘start running’ program in association with The Rex which will prepare participants to participate in either the 5km or 10km events. The event is also a fund raiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association of South Australia, which provides services for people with neuromuscular disorders. For each $100 raised by participants, they receive an entry into the draw for a trip to New York to compete in the New York Marathon. Local Mandy Gerhardy won the prize last year and had the experience of a lifetime.

CHEERS: Stephen Cook, wine manager for Jacob’s Creek toasts sponsorship of the inaugural Barossa Marathon with Terry Leach, event organiser. The Jacob’s Creek Barossa Marathon will start at Faith Lutheran College, with the course running through Bethany and Tanunda, along the bike path to Nuriootpa, and up the rail trail towards Angaston, before returning to Faith. “The course is incredibly scenic with the vines in their autumn glory, showcasing the best of the Barossa, while still being a good course for running,” Terry said. “Putting together a good marathon course is a balancing act between traffic management and even grades while trying to include beautiful scenery. The Barossa is blessed to be able to combine these so well.” The 10-week ‘start running’ program will be held on Sunday mornings and starts on March 18, with instruction by a qualified personal trainer. More classes may be scheduled depending on demand.

For $55, Barossa residents will receive full country membership of the SA Road Runners which entitles them to discounted entry to all SA Road Runner events (including the Jacob’s Creek Barossa Marathon) plus enrolment in a generous membership benefits program. However, the program is free to The Rex members. The success of this event has been built on strong community support. “We have been fortunate to have strong support over the years from the Barossa Council, Little Athletics, Nuriootpa Scouts and of course Jacob’s Creek,” Terry said. “We look forward to building on these relationships over the coming years.” For more information visit or telephone the SA Road Runners Club on 8363 7377.

Cyclone ‘Guppa’ By GRAHAM FISCHER

DON’T mention the word ‘Guppa’ at the Tanunda Cricket Club this week. Certainly around the Magpies’ A2 side. On Saturday at Nuriootpa, Jamie ‘Guppa’ Schmidt virtually destroyed the Tanunda A2 cricket team with amazing bowling figures. Tanunda, batting first, were bowled out for 40 with Schmidt returning the figures of 10.1 overs, four maidens, six wickets for just 12 runs. Nuriootpa batted and hit up eight wickets for 79 runs, with Schmidt chiming in with a quickfire 12, before declaring and giving the Magpies another bat. At stumps, Tanunda was an incredible 6/29 - still 10 runs behind the Tiger’s total. Schmidt took all six wickets to fall for the figures of seven overs, one maiden, six wickets for 17 runs. His match tally for the day was 12 wickets for just 29 runs. No - Schmidt wasn’t bowling ‘hand grenades’. “The pitch did a bit but I’d like to think we just bowled in the right areas,” a modest Schmidt said. But six wickets in an innings isn’t the best return for fast medium bowler. “”I took 8/19 in an A grade game for Greenock about 10 years ago. “But a few of the boys were pointing out on Saturday night that with all six wickets to fall in the second innings there was still a chance of 10for,” Schmidt said. And the nickname? “I started my junior cricket at Greenock and when I was a teenager someone nicknamed me Guppa and it has stood ever since.” Nuriootpa and Tanunda will be in the A2 finals and the bad news is that depending on results, the two sides could clash again in the first finals’ round on Saturday week.
