Good Mates – Rival Competitors

Year 12 Formal

Selected for State Athletics Team

he Mannum Community College Year 12 Formal was held on Friday the 18th of June. The venue was the Mannum Motel, which was really great as the Formal has not been held locally for such a long time. Some students arrived in limousines or other fancy vehicles. All students looked amazing as they entered the formal, with all the girls looking stunning with gorgeous dresses, hair and makeup. The boys also scrubbed up well with very smart suits, shoes and hair. The Motel provided excellent meals and service. We enjoyed the night by taking photos, chatting, dancing and even trying to waltz. The highlight of

the night was Mr Ward’s brave ‘Slice of Heaven’ dance he performed especially for us. There were several awards given to the year 12s, organised by Ms Penne Lewis-Brown.

Blake Tabe from Mannum Community College and Cameron Horstmann from Swan Reach Area School recently attended a day at Grange Primary School, meeting their team mates, team managers and coaches and trying on their uniforms. Before joining the State Athletics Team, Blake and Cameron competed against each other at the CMASSA sports day held at Swan Reach. At that event Cameron won the long jump and Blake won the discus throw. From these results they were selected to represent their schools at the Murraylands SAPSASA trials held at Unity College. Based on the results at that meeting they were chosen to represent the Murraylands zone at the SAPSASA Country

Our Students - Mannum’s Future Dear Editor, On Friday 18th June I went to view the Community College students “walk the red carpet” as a prelude to their School Formal. This was held at the Mannum Motel Barn where students and onlookers were then invited to partake of “nibbles” making everyone part of this special night. Students arrived in limousines or were chauffeured by parents, and the entrance to the barn was beautifully decorated for this occasion. I was so impressed by the beauty of the girls and their handsome escorts. Everyone had gone to so much trouble and it was with great pride that I watched as the young people of our town arrived. The dinner was then held in the Motel dining room and I hope all the students enjoyed their evening. The young people - the future of our town - were something of which to be very proud and I wish them every success as they complete their school lives at Mannum Community College. Carol Greening, O.A.M.

MMCSS Art Exhibition Dear Editor, We’re you in Mannum on the recent Queen’s Birthday long weekend? If you were strolling up Randell Street on Sunday the 13th, maybe you were one of many who took the opportunity to visit the inaugural MMCSS (Mid Murray Community Support Service) Art Class Exhibition. The patio area of 39 Randell Street was transformed for the day into an Art Gallery, displaying works from the MMCSS Art Class, including some winning entries from the recent Mannum Show. Mediums of oil, gouache, acrylic, watercolour and pastels were well represented, along with various techniques and styles. Displaying artists were on hand to talk viewers through their works. A relaxed and welcoming atmosphere greeted the visitors. A gold coin entry fee was well worth the chance to have a cuppa, cupcake and a warm place to sit and peruse over 40 pieces of talented artwork. All exhibitors were excited to have the opportunity toshowtheirworks, with the visitors taking their time to appreciate the display. All commented onthehigh standard, the creativity and inspirational quality of the exhibit. Many thanks go to EvelynMachin, the MMCSS Art Class teacher, a talented guiding light who has the

ability to bring out the best in her students, Brett Wallace, for making the framework for the display, and carrying out the ‘heavy work’, MMCSS Art Class member Lyn Bowmann, for organising and coordinating the event, to MMCSS for providing the opportunity for us to pursue our creativity, and supplying the venue. Last but not least, to all my fellow members of the Art Class, who are the most supportive and fun group of people I have had the pleasure of being a part of, a proud day for us all. Declared a huge success, there will definitely be more to come, so keep an eye out for the next MMCSS Art Class exhibition. An October long weekend exhibition is already in the planning stages. New members of the MMCSS Art Class are always welcome. If you are interested, please call the office on 8569 2129, or call in to 39 Randell St, Mannum and have a chat with one of the friendly staff. Classes are held every Monday 12:00pm to 3:00pm (except Public Holidays). Angie Roesler, Art Class member and MMCSS Clerical Assistant

From Mannum to Mandumb Dear Editor, Many years agobeforemovinginto the district I visited Mannum, and thought, “What a lovely town.” The cafes, the antique shops, the pub without pokies, the river and so on. Now living in the district I hear the town called, Man-Dumb, and it seems appropriate, for most of the character seems to have gone. Mannum is a unique town, there are only a few towns that run along the river rather than away from it, and the history re the Afghan traders, and the river boats, is awesome, but Mannum seems to be hell bent on becoming another disaster like Mount Barker or Gawler. For example, “Esmerelda”, another piece of history gone. Modern Mannum is a new shopping centre planned that looks like the hovels that now exist in certain suburbs, new council chambers, an ugly street clock, and suburbs that remind one of the song, “Little Boxes”. In Ireland, Scotland and Wales small villages like Mannum are huge tourist attractions because of their history. History attractspeople, look at Kapunda and Burra, or maybe the council should. It seems that the Mannum council have no idea at all

of how to promote and care for a town rich in history. The main street could be restored with verandahs, and a variety of shops that attract, e.g. antiques, books, cafes and so on. There is no excuse for the ignorance of this council, or maybe there is. Maybe they all need a historical awareness course, and also a course in being proud of governing Mannum and keeping the history of this river town, not bulldozing it. I’ve seen tourists in Europe pay to photograph stone walls! History attracts and while the council turns Mannum into their idea of a ‘modern’ (bland) tourist friendly place to visit, the tourists will go where history is alive and being preserved. The speed boats and jet ski tourists on the river do not open the town to the visitor looking for history and uniqueness. How can it with that screaming of those motors and the high volume music emanating from the speakers? Crass indeed! Councils come and go. One day Mannumwill get the councillorswho care, but by then how many historical places will be left? Do the councillors wish to be rememberedfor their construction or destruction? Catherine Johns

Premier’s Community Grant Dear Editor, The Hall is very grateful to the State Government for a Premier’s Community Initiatives Fund grant which has enabled us to purchase tools and materials for woodwork classes. The grant was applied for last year and after a long wait (always happens) several of our members had a wow of a time spending the money. The tools bought were from a comprehensive list put together by two volunteer handymen. The classes have started and the projects have begun rolling out. Wooden bird feeder - wooden ducks and galahs (what else would you expect in a wooden bird feeder!). So we say thanks again to the Premier for deciding we have a good project and for providing the funds. Terry Udy, Coordinator

of the Mannum Mag. Council has been active in issues of heritage conservation, more recently through the completion of a detailed Heritage Review for the entire Mid Murray Council region. This review now allows Council to move forward in terms of improved heritage conservationpolicies, thereby paving the way for the better protection of historic buildings. I can assure all of your readers Council does recognise the value of historic buildings and other heritage items within the Council area and as mentioned is moving towards providing increased protection via improved planning policy.

Does Mannum Have Problems of Concern to You? he Mannum Wellbeing Group wants to try to coordinate an effort to address some of the problems expressed in the pages of Mannum Mag. We ask you to cast your mind back to at least 3 items published in Mannum Mag this year. 1. February, Page 15 ‘Horror days living on River Lane’ 2. March, Page 2 ‘Does Mannum have a problem?’ 3. April, Page 2 ‘Editorial, Does Mannum have a problem?’ Let’s accept there will always be a problem or two in any community ranging from minor to serious, despite our best efforts to create the ideal. Let’s also accept that the Council members have done much to advance the wellbeing of our town and that the Police strive to do the same. However, we are well advised to address the problems of a disturbing nature that may still occur by bringing our concerns to the attention of those with power to act upon them.

Mannum Rowing Club Centenary his year the Rowing Club Celebrates its Centenary from 1910-2010 with a Centenary Dinner scheduled for Saturday 2nd October. The Club was formed in February 1910 as a result of a meeting held in the Pretoria Hotel. At the time the Mannum Athletics Club had been holding athletic meets on the Rec now know as Mary Ann Reserve. The Rec was a portion of land bought in trust for the towns people for public recreation, who in turn handed over responsibility to the District Council in 1940 after 42 years of service. The Rowing Club was granted permission to erect a boat shed which was officially opened on 29th of January 1911. Initially the shed was to be 45 x 25 ft at a cost of £100, but I think the size grew a little and the cost increased to 240 pounds 10 shillings and 5 pence. Although there has been 4 extensions, the original portion still stands as part of the existing club rooms. The shed itself was quite unique in having a wooden floor that became used as roller skating rink (run by a syndicate within the club that proved to be a substantial source of income) as well as a gymnasium. It was unfortunate that the 1917 Flood put an end to the Skating Rink with the wooden floor badly buckled. With the existinga athletic

T

club, it made sense to amalgamate and utilize the new facility. The Rowing Club formally became known as Mannum Rowing and Athletic Club. The first Regatta was held on Monday January 30th, 1911 with crews from the newly formed Murray Bridge Club in 1909 and Adelaide Clubs in attendance. With the Murray Bridge Regatta held on the Saturday 28th, the boats were then towed by paddle steamer, courtesy of Captain R M Randell, to Mannum for the Regatta on Monday. A tradition passed on through the years, is even today a feature. Competitors in a four oared crewed event race for the Arnold Cup, a prestigious cup that was donated by Johan Georg (George) Arnold. (J G Arnold) for that first Regatta which was won by an Adelaide Mercantile crew. Although not large in membership, the Club has been very successful in years past and present, winning numerous State Championships, Country Premierships and State crew Representation (including a Junior Girls crew) in sculling and crewed events at Australian Titles.

Celebrating “Christmas in June” e decided to be a bit different and have our Christmas in July, in June! We held the event on Friday 25th June, exactly 6 months from Christmas day, and invited other Red Hat chapters from Woodside, Elizabeth, Waikerie and Adelaide. We had 80 Red Hatters attend (and one pink hatter) and what a lovely day we had. Held at the Footy clubrooms, the Lions did a splendid job of preparing a two course Christmas lunch, with turkey and all the trimmings, and of course the delicious Lions Christmas Puddings with brandy custard. Thank you to all the Lions volunteers who worked so hard for us, we are very grateful for the wonderful lunch you provided for us. Lots of entertainment was planned for our visitors, and the highlight was the Murray Darlings Warblers, who performed a very funny version

W

of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”, and our very own “Red Hatters 12 Days of Christmas” (no partridge in a pear tree for us, our version features 8 blocks of chocolate, 6 shots of whisky, some lovely lingerie, and a couple of toy boys thrown in for good measure!) We had so much fun and frivolity, we came home with sore cheeks from laughing so much! The photos show the birthday girls celebrating their June birthdays (we swap our colours in our birthday month, wearing a purple hat and red clothes), and Lois and Sandie playing our official instrumen t , t h e “Kazoo”. As we had so much fun, we hope to make this an annual event and invite other South Australian chapters, so look out Mannum, we are likely to have even more Red Hatters visiting same time next year! Upcoming events for the Murray Darlings include a trip to the Willunga Almond Blossom Festival, a “decadent desserts” cooking experience in July, and a trip to Goolwa in August. Our membership continues to grow, and we especially welcome newcomers to Mannum - what a wonderful way to meet new people and have lots of fun in the process. Yours in red hat happiness, ...

What’s On n exciting first half of 2010 has kept us all busy at MMCSS. Most recently, MMCSS hosted an Art Exhibition showcasing many creative works in various mediums and styles from our resident Art Group. Well done a proud effort by all concerned. A successful event that deserves to be repeated, so I wasn’t surprised to hear that plans are underwayfor another exhibition during the October long weekend. Watch out for the details, and come along and see what our local amateur artists are creating. July will see th e commencement of the MMCSS regularly offered basic and intermediate computer courses. The computer courses are valuable if you haven’t yet plunged into the technologythat surrounds us, or if you just need a refresher. The presentation is relaxed and comfortably paced. In August, accredited St John Senior First Aid and CPR update courses have been scheduled, and have strict limits on number of participants, so get in early to avoid disappointment. Also in August and new this year, ‘Cooking with Angie’, Series 2 will begin. Series 2 follows on from the previous course, aimed to develop technique and skill, along with budget friendly and quick to prepare dishes to learn. Ideal for the participants in the previous course or for anyone wishing to expand on existing skills and knowledge. The ‘Men’s Breakfast’, has had a change of venue, the River Bar at the Mannum Community Club, access from River Lane. Over the past 12 or more months the MMCSS ‘Men’s Breakfast’ attendance has outgrown our tiny courtyard at 39 Randell Street. Along with a little more room to groove, the new venue offers a little more shelter from the elements. Please remember to book and I hope to see you there!

Mannum Probus Club annum Combined Probus Club have been quite active with good attendance for bus trips and when we have guest speakers. We have also been attracting new members. At our June meeting, the guest speaker was Louise Herft from Aged Rights Advocacy Service. ARAS was established in 1990 with the purpose of

M

promoting and protecting the rights of older people in residential care. Loui s e divided her presentation into five main topics: Safeguard Your Finances, the Duties and Responsibilities of Your Enduring Power of Attorney, the Duties and Responsibilities of Your Enduring Guardian,

Appointing An Enduring Power of Attorney and Appointing An Enduring Guardian. These are topics that certainly cover matters we should all have in place as an elderly person while we are able to do so. After this great educational presentation Trevor Frahn, our President, presented Louise wi t h a certifi c a t e of appreciation which was gratefully accepted. At our next meeting on July 5th at 10:00am, downstairs in the Mannum Community Club, Dr Peter Joyner from the Mannum Medical Centre will be a guest speaker. Visitors are always welcome. Trevor Frahn

Mannum Red Cross he Mannum Red Cross Branch held their Annual General Meeting on June 8th with 10 members attending, and one apology.

The Badge Day collection raised $269. Arrangements were made for the next Card Luncheon, which will be held on July 22nd. Soup will be included in the menu. Rae Bottroff

he Murraylands Regional Tourist Association Inc invites all MannumCommunity and Businesses to come and join us in a celebration of the township of Mannum’s River History and Commemorative Launch on Sunday October 24th 2010. 10am-3pm. This event has been made possible thanks to the revive and thrive grant. The event will be based on a 1933 theme - the year when the Sojourner was first launched. Also, a “Back to Mannum” day was held in 1933 to improve community moral due to the Depression and flood. The whole of the Community is invited. At the Reserve we are hoping to involve all Mannum c ommuni t y c l u b s a nd a ssocia tions ( P r ogr e s s, Rowing, Lions, MCC, Leisure Centre, Museums and more). We will have family fun activities and games pertaining to the old days before

T

Nintendos and Wiis. There will be canoes and boats, a BBQ by Lions, and information tents for local clubs, museums and businesses to show what they do in the community. All local businesses are invited to join the celebration. We will be encouraging Randell Street and other Mannum businesses to shake off the cobwebs: create a window display, perhaps i l l us t r a t i ng wha t wa s happening in your shop in 1933. Guests to our town love the ambience and charm, we are all proudly a part of that feeling. There will be stalls and photographic displays and art of the 30s. (Flood, depression, pre war period.) We hope that the Beam engine will be firing down at the Mannum Dock Museum and encouraging locals to visit the PS Marion, the Dock

Museum, Old Days Old Ways and Mannum Gem and Mineral Gallery. Get your Mannum passport stamped and go into a draw for a great prize. The launch of the canoe trail and the new flier A Piano Tells A Story will take place during the day. Do you have any photographs of the 1933s? What were they wearing, driving, riding then? Do you have a program of the “Back to Mannum” celebration in 1933? Do you have any great ideas to make this day really special? Can you assist us before or on the Day? Does your club or group have a marquee for loan we are in need of one more for the day.

Out Of This World

Reunion and Tribute to Joan Kreiser

Astronomer’s Corner he globe on which we live has astronomical characteristics which are well understood and assist us to move around and explore our planet. Early sailors and travellers paid much attention to astronomy, carrying small pocket globes and compasses long before well marked out roads were set down. In those early years telescopes and maps were the branch of information most sought after by governments and private industry alike. Making good use of well known star locations has aided mariners and nautical expeditions throughout history, especially when very little was known about such destinations as remote as the South Pole. Much of our lives on planet earth is connected to and orientated around the axis of rotation, a line through the poles. Not often evident in sight and at times more of a “sense” which has changed minutely over the millennia. The equator, the two poles and a curved earth surface add an extra level of difficulty, as opposed to navigating on a plane or flat surface. The centre of the earth provides an anchor for the constant momentum of a spinning earth where level ground is always a sort after constant, even at sea. At a very basic level the accuracy of readings can only get better in amateur astronomy as we get better at the craft. Using a compass and accurately finding position on a spinning globe is not an easy task but one that is connected to star or sidereal time, and a constantly changing night sky as we travel around the sun. Amateur astronomy at any level is a process of finding the unknown and being able write down its position so as to locate the object at a later date. With the advent of GPS and smaller and smarter phones we have once again become switched on to the pocket and hand held instruments. Venus is in Leo, Mars is in Leo/Virgo. Jupiter is an evening object in Pisces. Saturn is in Virgo rising after midday.

T

t was a calm and crisp evening as students and past students, their families and friends gathered at the Woolshed Gallery in Mannum for a reunion and tribute to Joan Kreiser. Since settling in Mannum some 23 years ago, Joan has annually submitted her students for examination by both the Australian Music Examination Board, (under the auspices of Adelaide University) and Trinity College London, (affiliated with London and Durham Universities) for whom the students are examined by an International Examination Board which visits Australia annually. The subjects examined are speech, drama and communication studies. In all this time not one student failed. All students except three attained honours or credits in both London and Australian exams. Mannum students were the only students in South Australia to sit for both London

I

and Australian examinations. Ingrid Haythorpe, one of Joan’s earliest students, and now a lawyer in the Attorney General’s Department, hosted the evening and spoke of the influence of Joan’s teaching on all their lives. Verity May and Emma Mann also spoke paying tribute to Joan. During the evening Joan gave a moving presentation of works by John O’Brien and John Keats. This was followed by a buffet of gourmet finger food and fine wines prepared by parents and students. Later Joan thanked Marg Haythorpe, Graham Gaston, parents, and everyone for the evening and spoke of the honour and humility she felt for the overwhelming surprise at this event. She spoke of her pride for all her students and said she thought the young people of Mannum were ou t st a n d i n g i n th ei r achievements and a credit to their community. Valorie Bottroff

Mid Murray Council

Chippy Chatter he 10th of June saw CHIPS host it’s 32nd Friendship Lunch. Held at the Mannum Club, 108 attended and the meals served gained rave reviews from the guests attending. Well done Annie and her team! Unfortunately the Guest Speaker from Red Cross ‘Telecross’ service cancelled due to illness but thankfully, at the 11th hour, Bob Hunter graciously volunteered his time to entertain us all, and as always was well received and enjoyed. The quiz, although some felt was a little hard, proved to be a great topic of conversation. Once again the Friendship Lunch was demonstrated to be a great social outing for our many clients and volunteers.

The Community Helpers Shop is as busy as ever with various goods donated by our generous community, thank you. The volunteers who donate their time to help out, certainly have their work cut out for them some days, a great effort from a great team, well done! Brett Wallace CHIPS Acting Coordinator

Hosted by the quilters of “Shared Stitches of Mannum”, this event is held in conjunction with Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea. Quilters came from Adelaide, Barossa Valley, Goolwa, Karoonda, Minlaton and Mannum. Then there were the helpers (our own members) - ironing, reverse stitching, working in the kitchen, selling raffle tickets etc. Many thanks to them. In excess of $1000.00 was raised on the day with the proceeds being donated to the Cancer Council. The “Shared Stitches of Mannum” group thank sincerely the

Mannum Motel for the use of their Barn for the day. A perfect venue for such a worthy cause. Also thank you to our own member Susan Murphy, who designed the pattern for our mystery quilt especially for this fund raiser.

Mental Musings Is the glass half empty or half full?

e all have different ways of viewing our world and to deal effectively and constructively with the things life throws at us, we need to build resilience, so says Allen Woodward of Lifeline Aust. What is resilience? It’s about our ability to cope when life gets tough and not succumb to problems like anxiety and depression.

W

Issue Number 48

But, some people are born naturally more resilient than others and some personality types are also more resilient than others. How do we build it up? It’s never too late (or early) to start! Firm foundations for resilience are a good diet, regular sleep, activity and relaxation as well as social support networ ks and

relationships with family and friends, on which we need to know how to draw. Practice focussing on the positive aspects of things happening in our lives and keeping a daily gratitude journal. These things all help build resilience. Challenge negative thoughts and see the glass as always half full.

Mannum Mag

Resilience also benefits us at other times in life says Stuar t Taylor of the Resilience Institute. It’s also one’s ability to thrive on challenges, as resilience is a place of health, happiness and high performance and about having a positive impact on others and reaching our full potential.

Mannum Bowling Club ou have possibly seen some strange activity at the Mannum Bowl i n g Club recently. As a result of sub standard work on the base of our back green at the time of installation, that green had not met Bowls Aust r a l i a r e q u i r em en t s. Therefore repair work had to be undertaken. That involved rolling the carpet and levelling the base, then re-laying the carpet. This work had to be done over a few days and, although we employed a specialist company to do the work of levelling the base, we

Y

needed many people to roll the carpet. This was too large an undertaking for our members to do, so we enlisted the help of community. Our sincere thanks go to:Lions Club of Mannum Football Club Members Bottom Pub Social Club Members Local Police Bowling Club Members Community Without your help this task would not have been achievable.

Louis Armstrong - A Tribute ecently trumpet virtuoso James Morrison together with vocalist Emma Pask and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra performed a tribute to jazz legend Louis Armstrong. Many know Louis for his all too familiar All Stars group and his film appearances, often in a demeaning form. His appearance with Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Grace Kelly in “High Society” was perhaps one of his best since it didn’t classify him as something less than human. There is some conjecture about how his name should be pronounced. Is it Looie or Luis? As an American friend of mine points out it is St Louis, not St Looie. (I know, Judy Garland sang St Looie, but that was an exception.) In Satchmo’s version of Hello Dolly he sings ‘Luis’. Why should Louis be given such reverence? He sounds like so many other traditional jazz players. No! Wrong! The others sound like Louis. He was there first. Louis gave to the music world the defining role of the lead instrument in improvisation. He took the soloist out of the collective band group and brought him or her front and

R

centre to the featured part which distinguished jazz for many because of the instant improvisation by the solo voice. As if that wasn’t enough Louis also defined scat singing. Scat singing is that peculiar style of singing where the voice sounds as any instrument and actually improvises on the music in the same way as would an instrument. Ella Fitzgerald is perhaps the finest exponent of scat singing although there are others worth hearing. Louis always claimed he was born on July the 4th, 1900. It wasn’t until after his death on the 6th of July, 1971 that his birth certificate was found by Dan Morgenstein, later director of Rutger Institute of Jazz Studies. The certificate showed Louis was born on the 4th of August, 1901. The boy with the big mouth and the loud sound grew into the outstanding musician after spending time with river boat jazz bands and street bands in New Orleans. His early musical hero was Jo ‘King’ Oliver, also a cornet player. Louis says he left New Orleans to join ‘King’ Oliver in Chicago on August 8th, 1922.

Later he began to lead bands of his own and record under his own name. When Louis died people came from all parts of the city of New Orleans to pay tribute to who many regarded as their best known native son. So well did the New Orleans Jazz Club do their job that the tribute program was too large to include all those who had come for the event. Newspapers of the day estimated the crowd at in excess of 10 000. Louis was actually buried in New York at the National Guard Armory in Manhattan. A private, ticket only service was held at The Corona Congregational Centre in Queens, New York. On television CBS paid tribute to Louis in special program of film clips with musical tributes from such as Dizzy Gillespie, Peggy Lee, Bobby Hackett, Tyree Glenn, Earl Hines and Buddy Rich. In part two of this article I will speak of some of the music of Louis and identify tracks and albums where this music can be found. Peter Weir

A Fable?

O

nce upon a time, long long ago and far away there was a land where the people were genetically modified. Their scientists had discovered the gene for honesty was not switched on fully in most people, but by their new cutting edge technology it could be easily and safely activated. It would only take a mass inoculation program that could be rolledoutin weeks. The decision to proceed was made at cabinet level and put to the people who voted overwhelmingly to undergo the process immediately. The political advertisements that preceded the vote for the process went something like this. “Honesty isn’t virtue and it isn’t truth, so it won’t violate anyone’s religious opinions. It’s openness. It solves a lot ofproblemsbecauseitmakes it easier to define the problem and saves all that positive listening nonsense that takes so much time. We can get right down to the negotiations. It would save time and money not to have government departments dedicated to collecting information and spreading misinformation. We would need no Centrelink employees except for a few clerks to make out our cheques or bank deposits and a computer operator or two to make sure we’ve spelt our names right and added up properly. We would all be honestly filling in our tax returns and paying up on time and there would be no need for anyone to check on anyone else. No tax department except for the same Centrelink employees who could do overtime once a year at tax time. There would still be security officers to deal with those people who honestly felt they needed things they couldn’t pay for, for whatever reason. But the thieves would be easy to spot as they walked up and openly took the goods. There’d be very few lawyers because the crooks wouldn’t know how to lie which would make the judges jobs easy - so we’d need less of those as well. In fact, honesty would do away with most of the employees in law enforcement and government departments. And a few used car salesmen.” It was the best cost saving measure the government had come up with that anyone could remember. Their next budget was honestly expected to do away with the huge national debt and provide a very large surplus. However,noonehadanticipatedthegiantunemploymentproblemallthose government departments would generate when they were closed down. It

was honestly expected that new jobs would be created by freeing up all that money. Unfortunately most of the new jobs were in small industries that now had free time to put into production and product development. It was found that a great many of the former government employees were not suitable for productive work. They ended up being dependent on Centrelink, which meant that that work force had to be expanded, though not by too much. The payments were easily met by the unexpected flow of cash from former tax cheats and benefits were honestly configured to provide a realistic standard of living so the economy did not suffer. But the social upheaval was huge. Friendships were disrupted. “Do I look fat in this?” went out of the vocabulary. Husbandsand wives often spent weeks in shock and children were avoided everywhere as they told it as they saw it. Many did not want to be near relatives. In fact, many honestly admitted they never had. Shopping was a nightmare as closing down sales almost disappeared and ads reading, “exorbitantly overpriced” and “cheap and shoddy” were everywhere. Tradesmen had to make up entirely new invoices and “market forces” were replaced by “greed and avarice.” Used car salesmen became extinct. It was not a pleasant scene. The cabinet held an emergency meeting and decided that in the interest of social cohesion, people should be free to choose to have the procedure reversed. It was a lesson in community cooperation as almost the entire population lined up for the reversal. Of course, the cabinet had been exempted in the first place and so were able to save the day.

Solution: Sounds like you have been reading some Indian cookbooks, a good time of year to prepare dishes with a little (or a lot!) of heat. I digress, now to give you some info. Curry leaves come from the Curry Tree (Murraya koenigii), a sub tropical to tropical tree, native to India, grows to about 4-6m tall and if you are ever lucky enough to come across one or grow one yourself don’t

eat the seeds of the berries that form from the white flower, they are poisonous! The leaves a r e pi c ke d a nd us e d predominately in Indian and Sri Lankan Cuisine and have an aroma of citrus and spice, quite pungent. The leaves can be steeped in a curry, a ‘Fish Curry’ with Coconut Milk for example, lentil dishes and chutneys. They can be kept fresh chilled for up to 1 week, stored in the freezer for up to 3 months or dried and stored in a dry, dark place. The best flavour results are

derived from the fresh Curry Leaf, it loses some of its pungent integrity of flavour when stored/preserved. If replacing dried Curry Leaves for fresh in a recipe, double the quantity. It is a specialty ingredient that is not widely available, but I have bought it from the Asian Supermarket on Standen St Murray Bridge and also at the Central Market in Adelaide.

Some Food Dilemmas There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine are in pineapple. English muffins weren’t invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren’t sweet, are meat. If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?

The Big Australian akuma has sent for you, Sushil,” my friend called, as he hurried towards me in the gardens. I knew this meant our headman had chosen me. The big Australian would become my responsibility during his stay in our village. I was expected to welcome him into my hut, to shelter and to feed him, although I struggled to provide enough for my own. Earlier I had watched silently with others as an NGO vehicle arrived to disgorge the stranger. Brian Henry Parkes was a solid man of average height. “Call me BHP,” he announced, adding with a chuckle, “the big Australian from Wollongong.” We puzzled over this. He said it was a joke that other Australians better appreciated and enjoyed. The NGO official had arranged that BHP would visit our village for a month, to work alongside and to learn from us. “This man looks like he is a big eater, as well as a big Australian”, I thought. It is my dream to see Parsu, my son, ga i n enough knowledge through school to make a living from his mind, rather than from hard and poorly-paid physical work. For tha t rea son, a t every opportunity I put aside a little rice to sell. Sometimes I also find time to carve small wooden buffaloes for the tourists. The few coins that I receive are paying Parsu’s school fees. I keep a small cache of them in a box buried inside our hut. My wife has a necklace, entrusted to Devika on her mother’s death bed. It might sell for a dollar or two, which could also help with the school fees. But Devika will

K

not part with this heirloom of her mother and before that, her grandmother. Fearing that my coins might be found and stolen by the stranger, I dug them up late on his first night with us while all were apparently sleeping, and crept away into the forest. Beside a clearing, I created a new place to hide them temporarily. It was as well, I believed, that I had taken this precaution when only last week I noticed that the soil above the empty box in my hut had been disturbed. My dreams were troubled that night, for I had begun to trust and befriend our Australian visitor. BHP surprised all the villagers by his willing efforts of work in the gardens. He laughed along with us when his clumsiness was apparent, and he seemed determined to improve his skills. The village children flocked to him of an evening, when he lay with them on the ground, pointing to stars and explaining their individual places in our sky. He ate sparingly for such a well-built man. Finally the day came for us to farewell the big Australian. I had finished whittling a water buffalo to give him as a parting gift on behalf of the village. But only hours before his departure, my small daughter sneaked the new carving outside to play with and she had lost it in the dense forest surrounding our hut. I was still searching for the gift when Kakuma sent for me again. My hidden coins were close by. I quickly recovered them before answering the headman’s command, fearful that I might lose them also.

I remember standing before all my villagers, the precious coins burning in my clenched left hand, my head bowed, unable to look Kakuma, Devika or the big Australian directly in the eye, such was my shame. I can still hear myself stammering the excuse to my guest. “I deeply regret that we have nothing to give you to remember us by,” I said. BHP looked from Devika to me and smiled. “But each of you has something of value which you can give me,” he said. “It’s in your hand, Sushil. And,” he added with a grin and a twinkle in his eye, “it’s around your shoulders, Devika.” I trembled, thinking of those five coins that I needed for Pa rsu’s continuing education, sweating and hot, “hidden” I had thought, in the tight grip of my left hand. Devika glanced down in unconcealed dismay at the family necklace which she wore. Neither could refuse the big Australian. Our whole village would lose face. BHP stepped forward and grasped my right hand in his, shaking it firmly. Then he turned to Devika and threw his arms around her in a warm embrace. He tousled Parsu’s hair before swinging his rucksack onto his back and striding away to the waiting NGO vehicle with a cheery wave back over his shoulder. Afterwards I returned to my hut and gratefully re-buried my spared coins in their secret place. How astounded I was to discover another ten shiny siblings already nestled there in the box!

A little boy wanted $100 to buy a new bike. His mother told him to pray to God for it. He prayed and prayed for two weeks, but nothing turned up. Then he decided perhaps he should write God a letter requesting the $100.00. When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to God, they opened it up and decided to send it to the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister was so impressed, touched and amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a check for $5.00. He thought that this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy. The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 and sat down to write a thank-you letter to God, which read: Dear God, thank you very much for the money. I noticed that you had to send it through Canberra. As usual, they deducted $95.00 for themselves.

Mannum Golf Club une has been a busy month at the Mannum Golf Club. On Tuesday 1st June the Golf Club hosted a Police Charity golf day. The event was well supported with 83 players with most players visitors being from other clubs. The day was a resounding success with approx $1600.00 donated to Aminya Homes. The Aminya Homes CEO Lindsay Williams thanked all organizers and participants. He accepted the donation and suggested that it would help pay for the purchase of a new high dependency bed for the residents to use. The Golf Club would like to thank the Mannum Police and Mannum Hotel for their organization and sponsorship of this community event. Club Championships for the Men and Ladies have been

J

run and won this month. The Ladies Championship final was a 27 hole final held on Thursday 17th June on a cool and breezy day. The finalists this year were Leanne Quast and Hilary Miller. The match was closely contested throughout, with Hilary playing outstanding golf in her first finals appearance. The match was won on the 27th hole by Leanne and the final score was 2 up. The Men’s Championship finals were held on Sunday 20th June on a fine sunny winter’s day. The A grade finalists this year were Matthew Bormann and Shaun McGlashan. The final was played over 36 holes, with Matthew winning the match comfortably 9 and 8. The B grade final played

over 27 holes was between Jeff Applebee and Nick Kroehn. This match was closely contested and a winner was only decided on a sudden death 28th hole with Nick the eventual winner. The C grade final was also played over 27 holes between Neil Warhurst and Des Gaskell. This match was close the whole day and it was only on the 27th hole that Neil was able to win. The final score was 2 up. The Golf Club is also running a Quiz Night on Friday 20th August. Tables of 8 are required, so why not get some friends together for a fun night; the quiz starts at 8:00pm.

An Australian Adventure Vivian Garner (“Home” is anywhere you like to be.)

don’t think much about being a migrant any more. We retired in the Australian countryside an hour out of Adelaide. It is part of what was once a wheat farm and we own it with our son who uses it as a “week-ender.” He has four active youngsters so we decided to make the garage into a “grandparents retreat.” I was on its roof when I remembered the Werris Creek diary. I had just finished painting the gable and I was stuck. The ladder had been perfectly ordinary on the way up. I don’t know how it had gotten so much higher. Three tries had convinced me I could not get down without help. My husband was in the main house so help was at hand. The trouble was it had gone deaf. I yelled ’til the neighbour’s dogs half a kilometre away went into a frenzy. The back door stayed firmly closed. I banged on the iron roofing. It makes a

I

dreadful noise when you’re up close. The dogs set up another clamour. I leaned out to peer hopefully at that door. Nothing. I resigned myself to touching up the misses that were starting to show as the paint dried and asked myself what I had done to deserve this. The sun threatened to dip below the horizon at record speed but I was sure he’d remember me when mealtime rolled around. I settled down to enjoy the view - and wonder how I ended up here in the driest state on the driest continent after a perfectly ordinary childhood. It was during my musings that the diary came to mind. The valley was serene, peaceful, autumnal - a grape vine touched with red from last night’s frost, straw coloured fields and a huge stand of pepper trees hung with dull pink berries. White winged chuffs and a pair of green grass parrots frolicked between the power line and the pepper trees. From my perch the

road was invisible, only an occasional dust cloud following a farmers utility betraying its existence. It was originally called Friedenstahl - Valley of Peace and today it lived up to its name. Which was just as well or I never would have heard that door quietly close as my hearing challenged spouse stepped softly out of the house - probably not wanting to disturb me at my lofty work. After he got me down I went looking for the diary. I found it with our equator certificates and a notebook I had started on the Arcadia. Settling in a new country wasn’t easy, especially the first years in Tamworth. We’ve been back to visit Canada a few times in the last 35 years. You never forget home. But as my friend Elaine says, “Never mind, Viv. It’s home both sides of the ocean now.”

... and finally, some travel quotations “There are no foreign lands. It is the traveller only who is foreign.” – Robert Louis Stevenson “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

Mannum Youth Youth Advisory Committee Have a YAC’ with the Mid Murray Council he Mannum YAC met for the first time on the 7th of June. Topics raised included swimming facilities, low water levels, ‘Big Day Out’ type of events for youth in the community, the new shopping centre development, motor bike track, fast food outlets and how the YAC might operate. Wednesdays were thought to be the best day for meetings after school. The members identified food and drinks for meetings including packets of chips, lollies, chocolates, platters, barbeque, toffee apples, vanilla coke, chocolate milk, fruit, water, custard

and other munchies to sustain them for the meeting. The YAC will have a strong voice for youth needs in the community and will look to make positive changes in and around Mannum. Meetings will involve formal business and a fun component. If you want to make a difference in your community, learn new skills and have fun doing it then the YAC is for you! To join or for more information contact Council on 8569 0100 or email youth@mid-murray.sa.gov.au.

Skate Park lans to construct a Skate Park in Mannum are still on track with the facility likely to open in late December. Council approved the design at the June meeting and have l od g e d a d e vel op m e n t application in line with the grant funding process. The technical drawings and specifications are currently being worked on and will form a crucial part of the tender documents which will be released in early August. The tenders will then be assessed and Council will

It is anticipated that work would commence in October/November and Council hopes to hold an opening before Christmas, if all goes according to plan. Young people interested in being involved in planning an event to launch the skate park s h o u l d e m a i l youth@mid-murray.sa.gov.au and outline any ideas they might have and what they think they could contribute to a planning group.

n a first for South Australia the Murraylands are looking to establish a fun and funky Youth Bus which will act as a mobile youth centre to meet the needs of young people throughout our great region! Just imagine being part of this exciting project as a large former passenger bus rolls into a town near YOUth fitted out with internet connected computers, large screen video games, music pumping, disco lights flashing, ‘chill out spaces’, packed full of activities for young people and all supported by youth workers. People from numerous

I

organisations throughout the Murraylands, including a Mid Murray Council representative, are working hard to turn this dream into a reality for the youth of our region. The project team will shortly be seeking the support of the community including business, service clubs, youth groups and other community minded bodies to get behind the project and make it happen. To find out more, make comments, offer assistance or for a comprehensive briefing on the project please contact Shane Thompson after July 20 2010.

Angie’s Cooking Tips he cold weather has set in lately and that naturally makes us look for comforting and warming dishes to prepare. The recipe this week is a relatively cost effective meal to make (especially if you have a few staples in your cupboard). It can be easily served as a side dish or a main in its own right and won’t take long to get to the dinner table. It’s something I threw together for a meal in a hurry and turned out to be a keeper. Bump up the heat with chilli, if you dare, (I certainly do). Have some fun with it and put your own twist to it.

Mannum Rowing Club End of Year Summary s mentioned last month it was hoped those who went to Western Australia for the Australian Masters would return with a bag of Medals. What eventuated was better than expected, with all Mannum Rowers able to stand proudly on the Podium representing the Club and Town of Mannum. Such was the case, that different Interstate Clubs were asking where Mannum was and how big our Club was. Most were astounded when told we had a squad here of only 7 from a total of about 12 that compete seriously at regattas. The individual medal count was as follows: Dean Mobbs, 11 races entered. 4 Gold, 3 Silver, 1 Bronze. Brian Bormann, 6 races entered. 3 Gold, 2 Silver. John Banks, 6 races entered. 3 Gold, 1 Silver,1 Bronze. Claire Banks, 5 races entered. 3 Gold, 1 Bronze.

A

Graham Hunt, 5 races entered. 2 Bronze. Michael Wegener, 3 races entered. 1 Silver. Mark Johnson, 4 races entered. 1 Bronze. The third to last race of the regatta saw a Mannum/Pembroke composite crew of Michael Wegener, Mark Mussared, Peter Hodson and Dean Mobbs competing against Power Hou s e a n d Un i ve r s i t y of Queensland/Banks crews for a final in the Mens E four (55-59) age group. The University four are exmembers of the Australian Olympic 8. Although beaten into second by 17 seconds, which is a fairly large margin in rowing times, they can at least say they raced against an Olympic crew who over the past 14 to 18 years had lost none of their finesse. Some 650 competitors from all States and the ACT competed over

the 4 days, many of whom have been ex- World, National, State and as mentioned Olympic Oarsmen and Women, so it was great to come home with such results. Also we can confirm that the Club won the Mens Masters Premiership and the Mens Country Premiership. Dean Mobbs won the Individual Mens Masters Award for the most individual wins for the Season 2009-10. The Presentations were held at the Adelaide Rowing Club Rooms on the 25th June with a group of supporters attending. Don’t forget the Centenary Dinner 2 n d October. TICKETS ARE SELLING FAST.

The Grey Nomads - Part 1

I

t’s your turn to have them,” I told my sister Alice. “No, dear brother,” she said with a smirk on her face, “wrong, I had them last time. Besides that, since then we have built a pergola on the side of the house and there is nowhere for them to park that monstrosity of theirs.” “Are you sure?” I asked. “Yes, remember they wanted to take my kids sky diving. Said it would develop them. Then when Jeff and I refused, they wanted to take them to the nude beach to broaden their outlook.” I smiled as I remembered, then I frowned. “How did we get to raise such delinquent parents?” Alice just shook her head. And so it was that two weeks later my mother and father arrived in their huge Winnebago towing a small 4x4 behind and expecting to be able to park the whole box and dice in our driveway. They seemed a bit miffed when I told them they would have to park the 4x4 trailer in front of the campervan as the van would not fit under the carport roof and if it were left hitched to the van it would protrude across the footpath. “We don’t mind dear,” said my mother, outrageous blonde curls streaming in the blowing breeze. “But I do, the Council might throw a wobbly and fine me and I have to live here.” With ill grace they did as I asked. “Where can we park the 4x4?” father asked.

“In the street,” I told him. “And before you ask, no the neighbours can’t let you park in their place, they already have both our cars on their driveways.” Things didn’t get any better. The next thing was to connect the power.” “Use the outlet beside the fuse box,” I told Dad. He plugged in and turned on. “Something has happened to the computer game,” wailed daughter Sarah from the lounge room. “The washing machine stopped in mid cycle,” complained wife Shirley. “What happened to the TV?” son Tom asked, “just when it looked as though the Crows were going to win a game too.” “Have you got anything switched on in the van?” I asked. “Sure, everything. We never switchanythingoff. Just unplug when we leave and plug in again when we arrive. Is there something wrong with your wiring?” “There is nothing wrong with our wiring; it is just that we don’t own our own power station.” After I had turned off one of the TVs, two radios, a small deep freeze, a fan heater and an air conditioner the circuit breaker managed to hold. By now the children had come out to greet the grandparents. There were squeals of delight as they viewed the new computer game that they were given and then the various souvenirs brought from the far corners of the continent.

We all ate tea in front of TV, something we normally did not allow. “Oh, we always have our meals with the TV on,” said mother. It was no use arguing. After tea we had to watch videos of various places they had been and people they had met. The phone rang and it was my dear sister calling to find out how everything was, but really just wanting to gloat. “Don’t worry, your turn is coming,” I told her. She laughed merrily. “We have decided that no matter when they come we will go on a holiday to get out of that one.” “You wouldn’t.” “Oh, yes we would,” she chuckled as she hung up. Finally things settled for the night. At least I thought so. Then I heard the little 4x4 go out and shortly return. Then there was a tap on the front door. “Can we have a cup of milk for coffee?” father asked when I opened the door. Slowly and with infinite patience, counting by halves to ten, I walked to the kitchen, took from the fridge the near full two litre bottle and walked back to where my father stood at the doorway. “Here, keep it,” I said as I thrust it at him, firmly closing the door on him. Back to bed to sleep; perchance to dream. Fat chance! The Diarist

Got time on your hands? Want to put your skills to good use?

Young, old, in between - the Mannum Dock Museum & Visitor Information Centre needs you! Whether you’re a long term resident of Mannum or new to the area you are welcome to join us. Sparing as little as two days a month would make the difference to our busy centre. The Visitor Information Centre is open 7 days a week and there is currently a desperate need for volunteer staff during the winter season as many of our regular volunteers flock to the warmer climates. It’s a great opportunity to interact with people from all over the world and keep your finger on the pulse of what’s happening in and around Mannum. As well as customer service in the Visitor Information Centre, jobs to be done in and around the Museum include database entry to catalogue the collection, building and construction work of exhibitions and displays, general yard maintenance and so much more. Volunteering on PS Marion is a lot of fun. As well as crewing there are many non operational roles to be filled including Galley Hands, Waiting Staff, Cleaners and House Persons, Ticket Sales and General Maintenance. So whether you enjoy working alone quietly or dealing with the public, there is something for everyone. Drop in and speak to one of our Coordinators or telephone 8569 1303.

On My Bookshelf Quilters Quick Taste Tempters by “Shared Stitches of Mannum” Quilting Group 2006 his is a favourite recipe book of mine and there is a touching story behind it. The idea for the recipe book was Lois Quast’s and this is her story, as recorded in the book. “Hi there, In approximately the middle of last year when discussions were taking place about the exhibition, I offered to compile a recipe book. Whilst compiling this recipe book, in October, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Fortunately it was picked up by a mammogram. My quilting group were informed as soon as it was confirmed, as I thought they would find out anyway and it was better for me to be open about it. The support I received from my beloved quilting group was just overwhelming. I received many phone calls, prayers, cards, gifts, food, it was ongoing. In December, the group presented me with a beautiful quilt, each person having sewn a square. I will treasure it forever. At the moment I am doing fine. My operation and radiotherapy treatment went really well. I encourage all of you to have your regular mammograms. Breast cancer, if diagnosed early, is very treatable. The proceeds from the sale of this recipe book will be going to aid breast cancer research. Thank You, Lois”

Since then this pretty little pink recipe book has sold approximately 1000 copies. At $6 a copy it has raised approximately $6000 for cancer research. I think that is a remarkable result for such a small community. It is still available for sale at the Information Centre. Here are a few good recipes for these chilly winter days. Chicken and Corn Chowder (Submitted by Lois Quast) 6 chicken drumsticks, 2 large onions, chopped, 2 cans creamed corn (small), 2 cans corn kernels, 2 chicken stock cubes, 2 x 250g cream cheese, salt and pepper, parsley flakes. Boil chicken, onion and stock cubes for 1 hour. Add creamed corn and corn kernels, parsley, salt and pepper. Boil 30 minutes. Add cream cheese, stirring until mixed. Carmel’s Lentil Soup (My oldest friend’s recipe with a husband, 6 children and numerous grandchildren she likes filling and frugal meals.) 1 carrot, 1 onion, 1 stick celery, 15g butter, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 250g bacon bones (or 2 bacon cubes), 250g lentils, 400g tomatoes (mashed), 1 litre (4 cups) water, 2 beef stock cubes, pepper, 2 tablespoons chopped parsley. Peel and chop onion and carrot, chop celery. Heat butter and oil in pan, add onion, celery and carrot, cook, stirring now and then until onion is transparent. Add bacon bones or cubes (I sometimes use cut up bacon), lentils (I use mostly green lentils plus a few red

frothy, cool, then add 2 cups SR flour and 1 egg. Mixallingredientsthoroughly, then pour into buttered square tin, bake for 40 minutes or until done. And finally something really decadent. Marg’s Chocolate and Cheese Balls (Submitted by Marg Dowley) (Simple to make, great on cheese platters or as nibbles with coffee and simply disgustingly bad for you. The problem is, you can’t stop at just eating one, so make them smaller and then you can have more!) 1 tub Philly spreadable cream cheese, Brandy (removes the sickly sweetness), 1 pkt Nestles White Melts, 1 pkt Nestles Dark chocolate Barely melt (not cook) white melts till they are only just runny. If you overheat, it cooks the cream cheese (bitter experience showing up there!) Mix in the brandy and cream cheese. Leave in fridge to harden and become easier to work with. Roll into small balls. Melt dark chocolate and coat the balls. I use a skewer to dip - less messy! Place on greaseproof/gladwrap to set. Resist them if you can until your guests come. A final note - Lois is very well and keeps very busy. She is still quilting and does a lot of work making community quilts for those in need. Her and her husband Ray’s work in helping bushfire victims since the time of her illness has been an inspiration. Jo Kader

Other vegies can be added. I like to add a sliced sweet potato and a tablespoon of barley, which makes it very thick. We have it as a meal for two, and can even stretch it to 2 meals with the addition of a can of creamed corn or any sort of beans. Meat Balls (Submitted by Wilma Axon) 500g mince, a finely chopped onion, 1/3 cup rice, 1/3 cup breadcrumbs, 1 egg, salt and pepper. Mix all together, roll into balls, put into casserole dish.

Snowy River Casserole (Submitted by Susan Murphy) 1 kg casserole steak, 420g can tomato soup, 4 tbspn flour, 2 tbspn brown sugar, ¼ cup sultanas, 2 tbspn brown vinegar, 2 bay leaves, 2 onions, sliced.
