COUNCIL GETS TOUGH WITH PORT WAKEFIELD CONTRACTORS:
Please explain! Port Wakefield residents are a step closer to having their concerns addressed over the town’s community wastewater management scheme (CWMS). Wakefield Regional Council (WRC) voted engineering contractors of the project, Adelaide-based Wallbridge and Gilbert, be required to consult with every landowner, in company with a licensed plumber to discuss practical connection points and to clarify any outstanding issues. The decision came after Port Wakefield residents rallied together at yet another lively council meeting last Wednesday. One member of council’s Port Wakefield CWMS working party and local resident, Richard Pain, spoke on behalf of the town’s residents. The saga of the impractically-placed connection points and alleged lack of planning and consultation has been an ongoing issue surrounding the major multi-million dollar project. Wakefield Regional Council funded the project with assistance from the State government and the Local
Lauren Hermon reports: Government Association’s CWMS program. Diverse Civil and Commercial Projects was awarded the contract through an open tender process for constructing the system. Wallbridge and Gilbert’s senior civil engineer, Nathan Silby, was present at the meeting to face disgruntled residents. Mr Silby had some concerns about the availability of residents when the consultation with every landowner in town would take place by Wallbridge and Gilbert. “It might be difficult because not all landowners may be available when they are contacted,” Mr Silby said. But his comment was quickly discarded by Mr Pain who said a member of council’s Port Wakefield CWMS working party would attend on behalf of landowners who may be unavailable at the time. n Continued Page 7

n EVERYONE who was anyone was in Balaklava last weekend for the Eisteddfod! We had a green-skinned witch – and someone much nicer, a delightful Mary Poppins, also known as Leah Harford. Balaklava’s Aishlea Smith, seen here performing “No Good Deed” from the musical “Wicked” in the musical theatre section, had a big weekend– placing in various sections and was a finalist in the Adelaide Plains Male Voice Choir scholarship. Leah, 12, of Plympton Park, performed “Practically Perfect” from Mary Poppins, to win the junior section of musical theatre. Thousands flocked to Balaklava for the 14th Eisteddfod, but now the music has softened and performers from all
across the state have departed after the grand finale drew the successful event to a close last Sunday. Sixty-nine local individual performers – not to mention those in multiple bands and choirs – were all part of the massive weekend of musical talent. About 200 volunteers took part. Eisteddfod president, Bronny Cottle, thanked all. “It would never be possible without their help,” she said. Local businesses also took advantage of the mass crowds with business soaring over the weekend. Free Choice owners, Filip and Antonella Scaffidi, said the weekend was very busy but staff were well prepared. Wendy Schulz, from Wendy’s Cakes’n’Cafe, said “it was

Ralli Park gets $58,000 Ralli Park grandstand in Balaklava and other council projects will get funding – provided approval is granted – following Wakefield Regional Council’s (WRC) lodgement of projects in round three of the Federal government’s Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program (RLCIP). At last Wednesday’s council meeting, $58,000 was allocated for the Ralli Park area, comprising $53,000 towards ongoing identified repairs to the grandstand and $5000 for water conservation activities involving rainwater storage and use. Based on round two guidelines, round three offered council $106,000, which required application lodgement on or
before last Friday. According to WRC chief executive officer, Phil Barry, the recently expanded basketball/netball/ tennis shed (assisted by Round 1 funding) is known to need a rainwater tank as one possible project. Council will be seeking Ralli Park Authority and Balaklava Area Committee’s feedback before finalising the project work. Mr Barry said it would be good to begin the project but it would not be completed immediately. Other stages, such as re-roofing the century-old grandstand, are identified in council’s Mace engineering report under “medium” priority. The stage costing estimate is $78,000. With
the grant of $53,000, a shortfall of $25,000 remains. Mr Barry said planning would be required over the next 18 months for community support (in-kind assistance and community funds), and other grant opportunities identified. Other projects to benefit include $5000 to Blyth stormwater dam, with additional floating tyres required to minimise evaporation. There is a plan to repair the walking trail at Owen wetlands. Council will allocate $4000 from the RLCIP funding. Snowtown oval also requires further funding towards upgrading the town oval watering system. It has $4900 unspent under council’s Sport and Recreation Facilities Program for 2009/10.

Project costs are expected to be higher due to a treated wastewater reuse irrigation system and Department of Health requirements. It is expected a further allocation will be made from RLCIP funding. Brinkworth football club is expected to get $5000, Lochiel football club $5000 and Hamley Bridge $4000. Mr Barry said council was pleased with the grant cash. “RLCIP is a national grant program which council hopes to be a permanent annual funding opportunity for council community infrastructure,” Mr Barry said. Once approved and funding documentation is signed off, the project work must be completed by December 31 next year.
Federal grants announced
Volunteer community groups across the Wakefield electorate will benefit from grant funding under the Federal government’s Volunteer Grants initiative. Among the 46 recipients are: Balaklava RSL sub branch, $5000; Balaklava branch of SACWA, $1000; Two Wells Equestrian and Pony club, $2000; Two Wells craft shop, $1,177; Thompson Beach Progress Association, $3,800; Lions Club of Kapunda, $2,345;Jingles Community Shed and Garden, Riverton, $2,142; Riverton Manoora Parish, $2,440 Saddleworth and District Historical Society, $1,546; South SACWA, Auburn, $3,150; Kapunda cubs and scouts, $1,877; Probus Club of Kapunda, $2,740. The grant scheme has been created to help cover the costs of petrol and the purchase of equipment and to meet costs of training volunteers and completing background and police checks. In total, Wakefield will receive almost $150,000 in funding.

Syngas reports progress Syngas yesterday announced the completion of advances to its coal-to-liquid project, stating it was another positive step forward for the project. Based on the work now completed, daily production levels of about 14,6000 barrels of liquid fuel have been estimated for the Clinton Project. Gas clean up, gas synthesis and liquids upgrade were completed. Syngas managing director, Merrill Gray, said the completion of work was a positive outlook for the Clinton Project. “It’s deepened our understanding of the engineering side of things and to get a better level of what we are imposing,” Ms Gray said. Syngas’ latest engineering work was completed with technology partners in America, UOP and Rentech. Completion of this latest work, over three of the six key sections of the plant, has provided a solid basis for Syngas to progress with the project, the Syngas announcement said.

A guide to the potential layout of the Two Wells town centre project has been endorsed by District Council of Mallala (DCM). Option four gained approval from six councillors at council’s meeting last Monday. The design features an open air market place, pedestrian/cycle path to connect the town, commercial outlets such as Target and Foodland, sufficient car parking, integrated bus interchange and a roundabout. The plan also includes community open space and designated areas for future development. This design “provides a consolidated urban form for the town centre, with better inter-connectivity from the historic wells to the main street and establishes a green belt area for community

Landscape Architect from JPE designs, David Gregory, said the project had been progressing well with the help of the public. “We have been working with the council, community and other key stakeholders to develop planning option four, following on from earlier consultation with the Two Wells community,” Mr Gregory said. Option four is a slight variation on option three, which was the preferred option during consultation. Minor modifications were made to car parking layout and the

Adjustments were also made to the size of the market plaza and to ensure buildings facing the main street were in line with the existing character of the town. Mr Gregory said designers were looking to advance to the next stage – development of the Design Guidelines and
Character Statements. DCM chief executive officer, Charles Mansueto, said the next step for council was to work with the State government to access Crown land to allow the town centre to be developed. “The process for this will include the development of a land access strategy by staff which is being proposed to be presented to council this month,” Mr Mansueto

said. He said it was difficult to determine when construction would begin until a clearer timeframe of access to Crown land was determined and how this land would be financed/acquired. “It is proposed to initially focus on the area from the Two Wells
Visitor Infomation Centre through to about adjacent to the post office and to the rear of these areas,” he said. Other areas will be developed as demand increases for additional services from residential growth. By council endorsing
the layout, work will begin on acquiring land, appropriate zoning/planning and a process to attract developers. Once access to Crown land has been resolved, a tender process to attract and identify developers for the facilities within the town centre will happen.

NEWS v Balaklava High
This learning is working for them Combining on the job training with school Balaklava High School is a step ahead of innovated learning, giving its students different avenues of education and training beyond the classroom. Vocational Education and Training (VET)
courses have proved effective in providing students with multiple ways of gaining skills for particular jobs should students want qualifications in a trade rather than an academic future after school. Luke Williams, shown welding, is learning engineering.
Lauren Hermon reports: Year 12 Balaklava High School students, Jack Jenner, Luke Williams and Samuel Tiller are just some students who have chosen VET as part of their SACE. Jack recently featured in SACE magazine, Achieve, which focused on his experience as a VET student and apprentice floor fitter at Balaklava Stitch Joint. Jack studies vocational studies A, vocational studies B and community studies and uses the TAFE hours to complete his SACE. “It’s been good to combine school with the apprenticeship. A lot of our work is in quite far out areas like Roxby Downs and Coober Pedy, so I’d do a few weeks at school and then a week away,” Jack said. Balaklava High School vocational education teacher, Sonia Pringle, said the school was proud to showcase a pathway for the students to learn and grow. “Our program is very
flexible and is designed to fit around students’ busy lives with work, apprenticeships, TAFE, further training and other commitments,” she said. “It is an excellent way for students to gain industry experience and get their SACE at the same time.” Along with the school’s VET program, the new trade training centre based on school grounds, offers students and adults a TAFE outlet. It is another proud venture of BHS. Student Luke Williams is undertaking a school-based apprenticeship in welding (engineering), and will also attend courses at the trade training centre when the centre is up and running. Other students are placed in a variety of industries. n To help students make decisions about which career pathwaythey want, a new booklet has been released by the Department of Further Education, Employment, Science and Technology. Career Choice can be downloaded from www. workinfoservice.sa.gov.

Trade training centre gears up Balaklava High School’s Trade Training Centre is slowly taking shape with about $200,000 worth of machinery which was expected to arrive from overseas sometime last week. Students and adults alike will soon be able to train in agriculture, engineering, building and construction, and automotive through the Lower North Centre of Trade Training, led by Balaklava High School and incorporating Riverton and District High School, Clare High and Burra Community School. Balaklava High School technology studies teacher, Wally Radowicz, said planning for the centre was still in the works, but was progressing well. According to Mr Radowicz, night classes have been discussed and funding is being looked at. The trade training will be interlinked with TAFE, offering participants up to certificate three in their chosen trade. Member for Wakefield, Nick Champion, said under the Trades Training Centre program, schools can choose to build their own trade training centre or to pool their resources with other local schools to create trades super centres.
“By the start of the 2011 school year, 68 centres will be operating with 230 projects approved covering 732 schools across Australia,” Mr Champion said. In a further initiative to boost opportunities for school students is the Federal government’s recent announcement of new work experience places for students participating in new National Trade Cadetships. The cadetship program, will help ensure students from years nine to 12 have the skills and experience to be job-ready and start a trade. Mr Champion said new work experience options could include spending up to two weeks with a local builder or carpenter, or a local engineering firm. The first group of students to benefit will be those who decide to do a National Trade Cadetship in 2012. Over two years, the Federal government has promised $3.1 million to establish the cadetships, to be delivered as part of the National Curriculum. “We need to invest now to ensure the next generation of young people in the north have the skills and training they need,” Mr Champion said.

NEWS v Port Wakefield
They say: ‘Take it away’ Residents call for action on highway eyesore A property on Highway One at Port Wakefield has been described as “dilapidated”, and was brought to council’s attention by disgusted locals and tourists requesting the site be cleaned up by its owner. A petition with 175 signatures requesting the clean up of the property, Lot 151 – formerly known as “Kev’s Takeaway” – was acknowledged by Wakefield Regional Council (WRC) at last week’s council meeting. Of the 175 signatures, 113 are Port Wakefield residents, 17 from surrounding districts, 39 from Adelaide and elsewhere and two from interstate, two without addresses and two anonymous. The petition is not the first plea from concerned locals requesting appropriate action be taken. Community members previously voiced their concern five years ago, resulting in a phone call to the owner from council in August 2005. Council voted a copy of the petition be given to the owner to “reaffirm” the importance of the issue. The petition was initiated by Port Wakefield resident, Maureen Underwood. Mrs Underwood was not present at last Wednesday’s council meeting due to family commitments interstate, but another concerned Port Wakefield resident spoke on her behalf. In Mrs Underwood’s prepared speech to council during public question time, council was asked if it was aware of the danger of the site. “Rubbish and what appears to be broken asbestos is lying around,” the statement read. “Pigeons and seagulls are nesting and creating a strong smell of bird droppings and posing a possible health hazard. “The overhead sign that had been flapping has had two sections

worth our time and commitment to make our town a better place.” A report to council by WRC environmental services manager, Elca McCarthy, stated “the area had been of concern with council for some time, and varying communications had been undertaken with the owner.” “The owner continues to respond he has future plans for the site and has undertaken some internal works, but disappointingly, he has not under-

Cr Kelly said the owner was “happy to work with council.” “The property owner has stated he will co-operate with council and

“The residents of Port Wakefield and tourists were concerned enough to sign (the) petition as to the state of the property, therefore I would like a firm answer so these people can be advised in our local newsletter what the outcome of this petition has been,” the letter read. “If not, anything we do is not
taken any steps to improve the outside of the premises,” the report stated. Ms McCarthy’s report stated she wrote to the property owner in April outlining council’s position. It read: “I am now concerned the state of the property has declined to a point where council may be forced to initiate legal proceedings against
community members’ requests and clean-up the property sometime this year,” councillor Kelly said. Councillors engaged in intense debate, suggesting tree planting, which was originally suggested by council, would not be enough to ‘save’ the property. Mrs Underwood’s prepared state-
ment also enhanced the fact “trees take years to grow and the condition of the building is the issue.” Central Ward councillor, Kelly Bickle, said “it’s a good thing for the owner to see just how many people are disgusted with the property.” The proposal for a fence to be raised was suggested by Southern Ward councillor, Rodney Reid, but was refuted by other councillors suggesting this would most likely not be practical nor solve the problem. The property owner in question did not comment before this article went to print. Mrs Underwood stated clearly in her letter to Mayor Maitland she did not want council to pursue legal action. “I would prefer not to have a reply concerning any thought of taking the owner of the property to court. This is not the purpose of the petition,” the letter read. WRC chief executive officer, Phil Barry, said council agreed with Mrs Underwood, and would continue to communicate and “reaffirm the importance of the issue” with the property owner.
Council details CWMS reports • From page one In several detailed reports from Wallbridge and Gilbert given to council, and made available to the public at last week’s meeting, several issues and concerns relating to the scheme were addressed. “Our records indicate 124 connections were moved after the initial pegging,” the letter to council from Wallbridge and Gilbert read. One of several letters from Wallbridge and Gilbert stated: • 44 connections were relocated at the request of property owner(s). • Nine related to the location of existing STEDS connections and matching into these existing connections
Plains Producer, Wednesday August 4, 2010
• Twenty-one related to easements either being created or being refused • Four related to allotment rating requirements of WRC • Thirty-three related to changes associated with the reduction in vaccum pit depths or changes in properties to be serviced and; • Thirteen related to construction issues such as stobie pole and existing services. “Under the contract, neither the designer nor the superintendent are obliged to discuss connection locations with an individual property owner,” the letter read. “However, given the number of changes and the impact on some property owners advice, consultation should probably have been undertaken.”
Another statement said: “Some connection points were pegged in one location and the installation of the connection was made in an alternate location,” one letter read. “The property owner therefore did not have the opportunity to raise concerns about the proposed connection location.” With rising anger and impatience mounting, the residents of Port Wakefield seem to have reached boiling point. “I feel council should have been more vigilant and observant during the construction of the CWMS,” Mr Pain said. “At the end of the day the responsibility falls back on council – it’s WRC’s project...even though Wallbridge
and Gilbert have not complied with the contract. “The evidence is in front of you,” Mr Pain told council. “Everything I look at, everything I touch – shows more evidence. “Please think of the residents. Do the job properly. Go back to the beginning and fix it.” WRC chief executive officer, Phil Barry, said consultation with landowners in the town needed to happen as soon as possible. “Wallbridge and Gilbert also has other projects throughout South Australia and even interstate, but they have a contractual obligation to WRC – and council will be demanding prompt service,” Mr Barry said. www.plainsproducer.com.au
News v District JAMES MAITLAND
Federal reminder WITH the Federal Election just weeks away, councils are anxious to talk to candidates. A recent meeting of the Wakefield Group of councils which I attended – made up of both country and metropolitan councils in this region – raised a number of issues which need discussion. No matter who wins the election, we need to ensure our local Federal representative is up to speed with the real needs of local, grass roots communities – and how they will support them into the future. Stimulus cash welcome The current Federal government’s stimulus funding to councils has been well managed in South Australia, with Wakefield Regional Council due to receive $106,000 from the most recent round of grants. At our most recent meeting last Wednesday, council decided to invest the cash into identified projects at Balaklava’s Ralli Park, and a range of water conservation projects including Blyth’s dam, Owen wetlands and Snowtown oval. The extra cash injection from the Federal government is most welcome, and reward for lobbying by local government nationally in recent years for much-needed infrastructure support – but all councils have once again had to hurriedly identify projects and have them costed to meet stringent guidelines and the July 30 deadline to gain Federal approval. I certainly do not want to appear ungrateful, but slightly more time to identify projects and prepare submissions might have allowed a greater spread of dollars across an increased variety of projects. ACCESS RAMPS ON THE WAY Council had wanted to use some of an earlier Federal funding allocation to create “pram ramps” in various town footpaths throughout the council area– obviously also to be used by the ever-increasing number of gopher riders – but we were told these did not fit the criteria for the stimulus funding. Not to be discouraged, council will plan to build the access ramps anyway! In our 20102011 budget it is proposed 10 ramps will be installed throughout the council area at a cost of $20,000. Priorities will be in public access areas where public access for prams, wheelchairs and gophers are more prevalent, such as town centres, schools, child care, hospitals and medical facilities. BECOME A COUNCILLOR Budding councillors will have the opportunity to be briefed by lawyers on changes to sections of the Local Government Act at a seminar later this month. It is important we all have a clear understanding of regulations and our responsibilities when making decisions. Another seminar to be held on August 14 aims to attract more women into local government – either as an elected member or as senior officers for councils. I encourage women from our council district to consider taking a role in local government – particularly with local government elections due in November this year. Nominations for elected members open Tuesday, September 7 and close at noon on Tuesday, September 21. Contact Wakefield Regional Council for nomination forms and more details.

Broadband for more towns
Some towns in the Adelaide Plains are set to join the digital revolution, with internet speeds up to 100 times faster than they are now. Towns in the Plains Producer readership area that will be hooked up to the fibre-optic network (12 megabits-a-second) are: Balaklava, Clare, Gawler, Auburn, Riverton, Saddleworth and Two Wells Mallala, Virginia, Blyth, Dublin, Hamley Bridge and Port Wakefield will go next generation wireless. The extra coverage came from a decision by the National
Broadband Network to roll out the fibre-optic network to 93 per cent of Australian premises rather than 90 per cent as originally promised. Towns with fewer than 1000 residents were said to be too small for expensive fibre rollout. But they will now be connected to the main trunk-fibre cables if they are located near larger population centres. Maps were released outlining the path for the new network to stretch across Australia under the National Broadband Network (NBN). According to Member for
Wakefield, Nick Champion, the maps show every house, school and business in Australia will have access to high speed broadband under the NBN. “It shows how communities will be served by next generation wireless and satellite technologies under the NBN,” Mr Champion said. High speed broadband will mean a song can be downloaded almost immediately and a two hour high definition movie can be downloaded in about five minutes. “Local families, businesses and schools will enjoy the
benefits of faster, modern technology – sharing the same advantages as the cities,” Mr Champion said. Mr Champion said the future of technology was looking bright. “It will make regional economies more competitive, ensure our students have the best quality education and put an end to download delays at home.” “Communities in this region have been crying out for better broadband after 12 years and 18 failed broadband plans from the former Coalition government,” Mr Champion said.

Christian pastoral support worker, Kathy Ottens with year 7 student, Dylan Robertson
Support role in doubt as funding under threat:
Why we need Kathy She guides and supports your children when you send them to school every morning. And one of the reasons why they may return home happy and motivated is because of her amazing and dedicated work. Now Kathy Ottens’ role as Christian pastoral support worker at Balaklava Primary School remains undecided as funding for schools’ chaplaincy program ends next year – should the Labor government come into power at this month’s Federal Election. The National School Chaplaincy Association launched an email campaign calling on the public to lobby local Federal MPs to support chaplaincy. Former Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, was a known advocate for school chaplaincy However, curent Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, has made no formal announcement as to whether funding for the program will continue. Until the issue is resolved, Kathy marks her fourth year of being a Christian pastoral support worker at the primary school. Her work has come as a joyful and humble experience. “It is a joy for me to work at the school, to work with the children, their families
By Lauren Hermon and to be part of the team with the staff at Balaklava Primary School,” Kathy said. “My role is to look after the wellbeing of the school community,” she said. Kathy’s work has included preparing food parcels to needy families with the help of churches in Balaklava. Beading, cooking, attending school camps, making Mother’s Day cards and Easter baskets are just some of the other activities Kathy undertakes with children. What makes Kathy unique and helps her connect with children is she reaches them on a personal level. “During lunchtime and recess I spend time with the children sometimes playing football, king pin, skipping, playing ball with children,” she said. “More intensive time is spent with individual children according to their needs. “I tend to concentrate on grieving or upset children or those who just need a listening ear,” she said. Chairperson of Balaklava Chaplaincy Support Group, Margaret Manuel, said
Kathy was a “blessing” to have at the school. “I am continually amazed at the work Kathy does,” Mrs Manuel said. “Her recent review confirmed what we as a support group already knew – Kathy Ottens is a gem and a highly regarded member of the Balaklava Primary School community,” she said. Schools Ministry Group regional manager, Cathy Dight, said it was important to make the ongoing funding for school chaplaincy programs an election issue. “We need to gain commitment from both major parties to ongoing funding for this wonderful program,” Ms Dight said. “At this point, Labor has given no assurance about any further funding. The Liberal government has committed to support future funding to the same level of funding as last time, which would mean no new schools would be able to access the funding and there would be no extra provision of funds to increase existing services,” she said. To help you can write a letter directly to the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister, or your local Federal Member to urge them to ensure the program funding be extended beyond December 2011.

The Mayoral robe and its duties Balaklava Museum has recently accepted custody of the mayoral robe which was used by the District Council of Wakefield Plains (1984-1996). The dictionary defines ‘mayor’ as the “chief magistrate of a city or borough” or the “chief official, usually elected”. The civic office of Mayor (or Lord Mayor) is a very British thing and dates back some 800 years, although the title seems to be derived from the Latin ‘maior’ and the French ‘maire’, and the position of the Mayor as the ‘first citizen’ suggests links with the Anglo-Saxon “ealdoman’ (later Alderman) – “the local elders from amongst whom one would emerge as the greatest” (from a website quote). (Note: I am not, for one moment, suggesting that our Mayor
Heritage Highlights by Norma Schopp
would consider himself as “the greatest” – rather, I believe him to be a leader.) It would seem that the office of Mayor may only exist in England, Wales, Ireland and Australia. Traditionally, the Mayor had a direct link to the monarch through parliament, and only the Queen or her representative took precedence. “As part of his or her duties, the Mayor has to witness the sealing and sign all legal documents from the council.”
• Balaklava’s Jeanette Long, with a long list of various achievements behind her, was nominated for 1990’s Young Achiever Awards.
residents will recall the commotion when the purchase of a mayoral robe and chain was suggested, although I think it may have been just the cost of the chain that shocked us all. Anyway, the robe and chain duly arrived and were used on numerous occasions in the next 12 years. Was the insignia on our local mayoral chain ever used for sealing legal documents? I doubt it. Times have changed and, with a further amalgamation of council districts and a subsequent name change, the use of the mayoral robe and chain became redundant (the insignia/medallion on the chain now has the wrong council name on it). So, while the chain remains securely locked away, the robe is now proudly on display at Balaklava Museum.

The “trappings” of office included a mayoral robe (scarlet in colour, trimmed with ermine), worn with a white lace “jabot” (collar), and the mayoral chain which had a badge or medallion featuring the borough crest. Interestingly, the original badge would have actually been the borough’s official seal (used on official documents) and it was considered the safest place to house it was around the Mayor’s neck! Who was going to steal it from there? In our local areas, prior to council amalgamation in 1983, the elected council chairman would preside at meetings and official functions, with very little fanfare.

Pet owners should protect their dogs from the winter bite just as they do themselves. Dr Mark Perissinotto, chief vet at online pet supply retailer VetShopAustralia.com. au, said there was a misconception that dogs are protected from the cold by their furry coats. “Just because your dog has fur it does not mean he can withstand the cold. Many pets are just not suited to the cooler weather and like us, will be a lot more comfortable when protected from the elements. “Dogs can suffer hypothermia, respiratory and sinus problems and if they have arthritis, will feel the effects of their
Balaklava Stitch Joint CROSSWORD
Protect dogs from winter bite condition even more.” Dr Perissinotto said it was important that pets always had a warm place to sleep at night, particularly older dogs suffering arthritis. “If you can, give them a cushioned bed which is elevated off the ground,” Dr Perissinotto said. “A warm place to sleep away from any draughts is also essential, so if you have outdoor pets consider bringing them inside or into the garage or laundry during winter. “An extra blanket or even an old jumper in your pet’s bed or kennel will also make a big difference to their
health and comfort.” Dr Perissinotto said some breeds of dogs, including Chihuahuas, Miniature Pinschers, Whippets and Greyhounds, would benefit from protective clothing. “Pet jackets are often criticised for being a silly accessory but if you have a cat or dog that has very short hair, is small or quite old, then it will benefit from
the added warmth of a snug jacket – just ensure it doesn’t restrict their movement,” he said. “It’s also a good idea to maintain an exercise regime and if your dog spends a lot of time outdoors or is a working animal, increase its food intake. “Like ours, their bodies require more energy to function effectively when it’s cold.”

Mallala council declares ‘nuclear free’ zone
Sarah tastes new career in business development She’s travelled the world, working as a wine-maker at nine vineyards across four different countries. Now 29-year-old Sarah Carracher said she had done her dash of travelling and had settled into her new role as business development officer for Regional Development Australia Yorke and Mid North (RDAYMN). She grew up in the south east at Penola in the heart of Coonawarra, which was recently devastated by a tornado which ripped through the town. Sarah has fond memories of herself and her four sisters living at a pub their parents owned. She has a Bachelor of Agricultural Science, majoring in Oenology and a Master of Business (Professional Accounting). Sarah has worked at vineyards in hometown of Coonawarra, the Barossa Valley, Hunter Valley, and has also ventured worldwide. She worked as a winemaker at a vineyard in Austria for four months in 2004 and for five months in France in 2005. Sarah admits her background has been a talking point, with most people often asking why she changed from wine-making to business. “I really enjoyed business studies,” Sarah said. “There are lots of opportunities in the field I am in now. I’m in a position to help people grow their businesses.” Now back in Clare as part of her role at Regional Development Australia, Sarah will offer a confidential and free business advisory service to both existing businesses as well as anyone wishing to start their own or expand their existing business located in the Mid North region. Being new to the job means Sarah is hoping to meet with and listen to business owners’ problems and issues, and what they want addressed. “I think the best way forward is definitely an integrated and cohesive approach trying to get communities and business groups working together with other groups such as councils, RDA, tourism committees and industry groups,” she said. “I want to make the best of any available resource. We have such an amazing lifestyle, I don’t want us to lose that.”
Herb talks postponed
Public consultation at Virginia for the proposed herb and spice levy will be suspended until after the federal election following an announcement from the Australian Herb and Spice Industry Association (AHSIA). This is because of the “caretaker” role now in operation for Federal government departments. The consultation in Virginia was supposed to take place on Monday, August 16.

driven the campaign, concerned the district might become a dumping ground for toxic waste. He is determined to prevent future consideration for nuclearrelated activities. All councillors voted in favour of the motion except for the mayor, Marcus Strudwicke, who supports the position but believed council had no power in the matter. “Council has no involvement in the control of nuclear waste and the nuclear industry,” he said. The management of radioactive waste in South Australia is
controlled under the provisions of the Radiation Protection and Control Act 1982 (the RPC Act) and its regulations. “I do support the intent, but from a process point of view, I don’t think council should be making decisions if they don’t have the power to do anything,” Mr Strudwicke said. Cnr Jones said it was important for the district to adopt this policy. “I believe to be nuclear free reflects how we value ourselves,” he said. “We need to set some parameters now because it’s easier to
keep something clean than have to clean it up after,” he said. Other councils in South Australia which are declared nuclear-free zones include Wakefield, Gawler, Elizabeth, Port Adelaide, Adelaide, Unley and Prospect. Declaration of nuclear free zone by any council and the erection of signs have limited legal significance, but are an important public statement of the view of council.

Residents can expect to live in a toxic-free environment following Mallala council’s decision to declare the district a ‘nuclear free zone’. This includes free from the existence of nuclear power stations, nuclear processing and enrichment plants, storage dump or any other facility using nuclear material, but excludes nuclear isotopes for medical treatment. This policy will be included in council’s development plan and is the same policy adopted by Wakefield Regional Council in 1997. Councillor Steve Jones has

Plan for Lions trail changes Balaklava’s popular Lions walking trail will be upgraded to become “gopher friendly.” Local gopher riders met with Balaklava and Districts Lions club president, Warren Durdin, to pinpoint problem areas and discuss options for a gopher diversion for the trail. It was resolved the trail would be extended and diverted around the Watchman road bridge, where gophers have trouble negotiating the steep incline. “It’s a problem spot – not only for gopher riders but also cyclists and walkers,” Warren said. “We plan to divert the trail around the bridge, to use part of the old bitumen road in front of
Balaklava Hospital, reconnecting with the trail across War Memorial Drive.” The walking trail around the bridge area would also be upgraded to improve safety, along with other areas which have been identified along its route. “We need to work with Wakefield Regional Council and Balaklava Area Committee to improve the trail,” Warren said. “We also plan some other improvements, like distance markers and fitness items — and recognition for past Lions members who worked hard on the trail.” Fencelines, safety barriers and signs will also considered.
Balaklava Area Committee will consider helping financially with some items when it holds its AGM tonight at the RSL hall in Balaklava from 7pm. The trail was developed in 1989. An extension to the west, following the disused railway line, also is being considered. The group will hold more meetings at a later date. Watch the Plains Producer for details.

Meeting to warn of asbestos
An asbestos awareness seminar has been organised in Balaklava through the Asbestos Victims Association (AVA) and Neighbourhood Shed group of Balaklava. The free seminar, aimed at increasing awareness about the dangers of asbestos and related illnesses, will be held at the Neighbourhood Shed house on Tuesday, August 17 at 1pm. Former Balaklava resident and
vice president of the AVA, Kat Burge, has been pushing for the seminar for several months, after raising concerns about asbestos in old Balaklava houses. She is appealing to Balaklava home-owners, especially those undergoing or planning to undergo renovations, to become informed about the deadly side effects. “Young people are buying old houses and because they have a
big mortgage they are doing a lot of renovations themselves,” Kat said. Kat’s desire to advocate asbestos and warn people of the extreme dangers of associated cancers has stemmed from the death of her father, Clive Wake who built many houses in Balaklava using asbestos. Everyone can attend. For more information, contact Kat on 08 8212 6008.

Community members are now able to sit in on Wakefield Regional Council’s (WRC) informal discussion sessions. In light of concerns raised during public question time at a recent council meeting, council endorsed the recommendation to allow the public to attend future informal discussions at last Wednesday’s meeting. These discussions, made at the end of council meetings, were previously prohibited from the public arena, where “sensitive” matters are discussed but with no decisions allegedly made. In a letter addressed to WRC mayor, James Maitland, from Port Wakefield resident Richard Pain, Mr Pain stated the reasons why council should allow the public to attend council’s informal discussions. “It supports the WRC philosophy of being open and transparent and may cause less confusion/misunderstanding by the community as they will be aware of what is occurring in the WRC region,” the letter stated. “I understand some confidential matters will need to be discussed behind ‘closed doors’, but (I) would hope if councillors do decide to allow the public to be present during informal discussions that the confidentiality clause is not used in a manner to stop the public from attending these discussions.” The issue raised some debate in the chamber last week with some councillors
for and against the new arrangement. Western Ward councillor, Scott Kelly, said council’s informal discussions should not be open to the public. “No decisions are made. It’s more like briefing sessions,” councillor Kelly said. “If the public sits in on these discussions they may go back home thinking they know the outcome of a particular issue, when really it’s just informal discussions where councillors bounce ideas off each other.” Fellow Western Ward councillor and deputy mayor, Barry Nottle, agreed with councillor Kelly’s views. “Sensitive matters are discussed,” councillor Nottle said. “We’ll be restricted with what we are able to say, then we’ll have to resort to communicating via email and letters, and we won’t get the feedback we need,” he said. Southern Ward councillor, Rodney Reid, was in favour of the transparency of informal discussions. “If issues are discussed, what is the difference if certain issues are included in the agendas with no decision being made?” he asked council. Section 90 (8) of the Local Government Act 1999 states : “The duty to hold a meeting of a council or council committee at a place open to the public does not in itself make unlawful informal gatherings or discussions involving: members of a the council or council committee and staff.”
n AGRICULTURE MINISTER’S PLEA:
‘Coles must work with pork producers’ South Australia’s Agriculture and Food Minister, Michael O’Brien, has called on Coles to work with governments and the Australian pork industry to achieve an orderly phasing out of sow stalls. Mr O’Brien said he understood and supported animal welfare concerns regarding the confinement of pregnant sows. However, he said to ban pork from intensive domestic piggeries now, while still allowing imported pork from overseas producers using sow stalls, would be counter-productive to the South Australian economy and achieve little for global animal welfare. “The fact is all states and territories agreed on a model code of practice, which came into effect last year,” Mr O’Brien said. “The code includes a requirement that by 2017, a sow will not be housed in a stall for more than six weeks per pregnancy. The industry itself is currently consulting with members to consider further changes. “The Coles decision gives insufficient time for producers to change their management systems in a manner that retains production and profitability.” South Australia is the nation’s biggest pork-processing state. Mr O’Brien said he supported a new application by the Roseworthy-based Pork Co-operative Research Centre (CRC) to extend Commonwealth fund-
ing for a major study of confinement-free systems. “Early indications from the current Pork CRC research are that sow welfare and productivity can be simultaneously improved,” he said. Mr O’Brien said he was confident research could be fast -tracked to deliver cost-effective management models. “If we don’t have an orderly approach to this emotive issue there’s a real danger some pork producers will go out of business and fresh pork imports may find their way onto supermarket shelves,” he said. “I fully support consumers being given the choice to buy pork from a range of farming systems. “It’s like free-range eggs; shoppers should have the option to pay more if they want to or less if they don’t. “I urge Coles to work with governments, researchers and producers to make sure we don’t disadvantage the industry and the state’s economy while working towards a shared goal.” South Australian Farmers Federation pork committee chairman, Butch Moses, said the government could call on Coles to achieve an orderly phasing out of sow stalls, but it might have little effect. “The government could try to work with Coles,” Mr Moses said. “But being a privately-owned company, Coles would run its own agenda.”

Click go the hours, Daryl – tick, tock, tick Well-known local shearer Daryl Andriske, of Blyth, has made the ambitious decision to shear for 24 hours to raise money for the Cancer Council SA. Shear for Life will be held at Blyth Oval on Saturday, October 9, from 10am, when Daryl will start shearing, continuing through the day and night to conclude at 10am the following Sunday. Daryl has been a full time shearer since 1986 and has won many prizes at country shows, as well as a number of state shearing championships over the past 15 years.
Daryl has been in training for the last three months, attending the gym as well as following a diet to build up his stamina for such a marathon. He throughly researched what is needed for his body to complete the challenge of shearing for 24 hours. Daryl had been thinking about completing a 24 hour shearing marathon for a number of years as a way to raise money for cancer research, as Daryl’s mother lost her battle with cancer 17 years ago. Together with Daryl, his friends and sup-
porters from the community have formed a working party to organise and raise money during the 24 hours, including meals and refreshments and a great line up of entertainment with fun for all ages, and a blade shearing demonstration. Blyth’s community organisations will also be lending a hand to make the 24 hours a whole lot of fun. Towards the end of the 24 hours, on Sunday morning, all are invited to participate in a “Walk for Life” along Blyth’s picturesque “Lomandra Walking Trail” – followed by
a barbeque breakfast as Daryl shears his final hour. A full program of the 24 hours of activities is in its final planning stages but it does include entertainers Danny Hooper and Hindsight. Everyone is welcome to support and encourage Daryl during the 24 hours and to help raise money for the Cancer Council SA. Polo shirts have been printed (as pictured) and are available for $45.

Let the music play
Young and old unite to rock the 14th Balaklava Eisteddfod Report compiled by publicists Pam Uppill, Kathryn Mahony, Jenny Rowland and Kevyna Gardner
isteddfod is Welsh for “a sitting” and there can be few more pleasurable ways to do just this. As local sport made way last weekend the community united to put the town on the musical map. About 200 volunteers contributed to the success of the three days, with many putting in countless hours. On Friday Balaklava buzzed as students from 15 schools competed in four venues across town. The Uniting Church was a popular choice, packed all day with the Open and Junior choral workshops and Junior and Senior Vocal Ensembles, indicating the increasing interest in this section. Collie Smith, the adjudicator, commented on the high standard and noted that Aliza Webb from Horizon Christian School deserved a medal for conducting four choirs on the day, with her Junior Vocal Ensemble winning that section. Balaklava Primary got an Honorable mention here. Temple Christian College took out the Vocal Ensemble Champion and their teacher, Joy Hague, who also works at Clare High School, enthused that students gained a wonderful sense of accomplishment, pride and joy and such a “buzz from music.” Their win was greeted with wild applause for this wonderfully talented group of nine. Angus Bugeja, a BHS year 11 student, formed and accompanied the BHS Singers who practised at lunchtime and competed for the first time this year. One of the students had never sung in public before and the group was thrilled to get this experience. At this venue, Coralie Taylor, who has not missed an Eisteddfod, said, “It’s a real feast of music; they are young and so talented.” Afamily from Riverton reported that they had paid to stay here for the weekend for last seven years so they could participate and attend everything. At the Church of Christ where five secondary schools competed in 11 performances of Senior Instrumental Ensembles, local high school students Dylan Pfieffer and Caitlin Auerbach acted as front of house volunteers. Both expressed a love of helping and being part of the weekend. Other students set up for performers or worked backstage. We were treated to flute, brass, clarinet, guitar, string, saxophone and jazz ensembles with old favourite tunes such as, “Just a closer walk with Thee,” “Danny Boy,” and composers such as Gershwin, Brubeck, Herbie Hancock, Vivaldi and Rossini No wonder Julia Hoskin commented: “I love the variety of instruments.” Local lady Joy Lewis, at her first Eisteddfod, said, “I think it’s marvellous the way young people come together to produce such beautiful music. Those who don’t come are missing out.” Adjudicator Allan Giles, observed that in the 10 years since he first

ances. I am astounded by how good these rock bands are.” Student Brittany Koch confidently announced and Emily Foale- Jacka was an admirable stage manager. Part of a large, young audience, the enthusiastic local trio of Betty Michael, Joyce Fisher and Hazel Smith “head banged” along with the bands. Winners, “Natural Acquaintance” from Kapunda High School brought goosebumps to Dale and the group of two boys and two girls in their
last year of school were rapt to win as they had only formed two months ago and practised in their own time once a week. The win meant a lot to them as three wanted to have careers in music and this day gave them experience and confidence. At the stage and concert bands in the Town Hall St Francis Xavier Regional Catholic School won the Junior Band Section over Balaklava Primary School. They performed well with one of their band members having been playing her instrument for only 10 weeks. Senior Band Section was won by Temple Christian College Concert Band who performed a very tight and engaging repertoire and adjudi-
cator, Rosemary Nairn awarded the Band Champion Trophy to them. It was a big surprise to this band as it was their first time competing in the Eisteddfod. A highlight of this section was Salisbury East High School Year 10 Stage Band’s performance of AC/DC’s, “It’s a Long Way to the Top” complete with a bagpipe solo! Maitland Area School Concert Band, with 10 primary students in an Open section, won here with the audience roaring applause. Friday was the day for students and their comments reiterated the value of being able to compare standards, showcase their talents, gain experience and enjoy the day. • Continued Page 17 www.plainsproducer.com.au

Sounds like ... fun for all! • From Page 15 Despite the cold weather locals who attended all venues on Saturday enthused about the standard and talent on array. Competitors such as Natalie-Alana Diglio from Adelaide reported she enjoyed Balaklava Eisteddfod as it’s such a friendly, happy, relaxed and warm competition. This sentiment was echoed by accompanist Peter Johns who said “such an environment is very nurturing for young performers.” Peter, local girl Melanie Redden and Adelaide’s Malcom Day, together accompanied 90 performers. Peter Johns noticed over the last five years the talent was getting better and the organisation tighter. Malcom Day summed up by saying it was a happy celebration of music rather than being highly competitive. Peter Deane, Vocal Section adjudicator, commented on how well prepared and confident the performers were and acknowledged the contribution made by the accompanists. Angela Tripodi, winner of the popular Intermediate Vocal Solo and winner of the Intermediate Contemporary Vocal Solo came from Salisbury East and performed here for the first time. She loved the acoustics of the churches and described them as very comfortable places to perform in. Her version of “Dream the Impossible Dream” was described by adjudicator Tom Leech as absolutely fantastic and the best performance he had heard. He also said that the maturity of the 15-yearold was incredible. Tom Leech described Michelle Rautenbach who came third in the Senior Contemporary Vocal Solo as “a talent of the future”. Our Aishlea Smith scored three first prizes throughout the day. Both the Contemporary Vocal and Musical Theatre played to full houses. Vocal Solo Champion was Tabitha Schirripa whose performance, Peter Deane said, “blew me away.” She sang a heartfealt version of Delta Goodrem’s “Together We are One.” Lacee McPharlin won first for Sub-Junior Vocal Section. In the Junior Vocal Solo Section Braydon Foal-Jacka was again successful with third place and Ciara Guy received an Honourable Mention. In Classical Open Vocal Solo, Heather Crawford was awarded third place. Tahlia Ries, who entered as a non-competitive performer, gave another stunning performance. She received rapturous applause for her second

the wonderfully costumed winner, Leah Harford who, in performing “Practically Perfect” from Mary Poppins, “could fly to Melbourne and perform in this show now.” In the popular (“it has a bit of everything”) Musical Theatre Ensemble Section we had items from Shrek the musical, Aladdin, Cinderella, Wicked, Sound of Music, Seussical and Oliver. All were highly entertaining performances with the three “Princess Fionas” resplendent in green velvet gowns taking out the Musical Theatre
Ensemble Championship. Local successful performers were Lacee McPharlin, second in the Sub Junior, Braydon Foale-Jacka, an appealing “Lonely Goatherd” second in the Junior division, and duo Ciara Guy and Tennayah Rensha, who brought the house down with their spirited rendition of “It’s a Fine Life” from “Oliver!” They were second in the Open Musical Theatre Ensemble. Other local standouts were Amy Clisby and Casey Lawrie singing “Whole New World” from Aladdin, Vanessa Barry and Emily Taylor costuming up for the “Step Sisters’ Lament” from Cinderella ( for an Honourable Mention) and the adorable three Heaslip girls, Jessica, Kate and Sarah singing Akuna Matata from “The Lion King”. Dressed in red and white striped socks, blue skirts and red and white wigs were Lucia Catalano and Claire Morphett who tapped danced, complete with frying pans, to “Green Eggs and Ham.” Aishlea Smith looked suitably ghoulish as Elphaba from “Wicked” singing “No Good Deed Goes Unpunished” and won third prize. Also wonderful to see was the big audience for Speech and Drama. Kelly
Bickle’s Drama Club has boosted the numbers of entrants in this section. Formerly from Port Wakefield, Joseph Ingram travelled all the way from Tumby Bay to win the Recitation Section with “Split ‘Em”, the true story of a kelpie dog by Swampy Marsh. Joseph, who is 14, has competed in the last seven Eisteddfods and has won this section every year. The Eisteddfod is the highlight of Joseph’s year.Tess Lawson, Meghan Baker and Sophie Parker all won awards in this section. In the Open Piano Division, equal first was awarded to Kathryn Jannes and Alicia Callisto. John Gall from Adelaide aged 67, playing in his first Balaklava Eisteddfod, was awarded third prize. John was the oldest competitor in this section, with the youngest being 11. There was also a Brazilian exchange student too. John mentioned he had recently started playing the piano again after 35 years. Ciara Guy won second place in the Intermediate Piano Division and Lexie Tiller received an Honourable Mention in the Novice Piano Division. The adjudicator here Diana Harris OAM mentioned audiences could be puzzled by choice of winners as simple, short pieces could win over more dramatic, complex pieces if the former were played more accurately. The Instrumental Solo featured a wide variety of instruments from French horn to bassoon and harp (cost $38,000!). Composers included Bob Dylan, Guns and Roses and Eric Clapton. Local girl Imogen Coles received an Honourable Mention for her violin piece in Intermediate Instrumental Solo Division. Adjudicator Alison Rosser commented the Senior Instrumental produced a stunning range of pieces from the serious classical to the modern brass. The performances are of such a high standard and variety it is a pity even with careful planning it is impossible to experience first hand all the wonderful highlights on offer. If you couldn’t go this year don’t miss next year as there is entertainment for all ages and tastes. The Sunday concert was once again a splendid finale to a wonderful weekend. It was an afternoon of champions with the winners of most sections performing their award winning items. The afternoon was humorously and capably MC’d by the charming and handsome Gary Wilson and assisted by the
ever-elegant and beautiful Trish Langdon. Although the Piano Champion was unable to attend, invited performer from Lochiel, 14-year-old Ben Nicholls, the Senior Solo winner, delighted the crowd playing his own composition on the grand piano, “Prelude to a Silent Movie.” Nathan Ellul’s magnificent performance on the violin, “Cossack Dance” was rapturously received by the audience and three delightful “Princess Fionas” once again provided a wonderful Musical Theatre experience. The Senior Rock Band Champion “Natural Acquaintance” from Kapunda High School were introduced by Gary who had come prepared with his own pair of industrial ear muffs! However, their version of a Goo Goo Dolls number did not prove to be an ear splitting experience for older members of the audience. A wonderful contrast was Joseph Ingram’s drama presentation in laconic Australian style of the story of a kelpie sheepdog in “Split ‘Em.” Local girl Aishlea Smith was one of three finalists for the Adelaide Plains Male Voice Choir Vocal Scholarship of $500. The other finalists were Jessica Mills and Natalie-
Alana Diglio. Jessica won the scholarship with her exciting performance of “The Lark”, “My Joyful Ardour” and the “Life of the Party”. The Combined Mid North Primary Schools Festival of Music Choir opened and closed the concert finshing with a moving solo performance from a Kapunda Primary School boy, Rory Howe. Kate Langdon was a polished announcer and well supported by Sarah Heaslip. Vice president, Di Spence, made a special presentation to Deb Robertson for her huge contribution of producing the program for the last 10 years. From its origin as an A4 page it has grown to a complex work of 45 pages. Grandeur Press will now produce the program. President Bronny Cottle thanked about 200 people involved in the organisation of the weekend. There were 12 adjudicators who together completed over 40 hours of adjudication. Once again, the audience was treated to a concert of the highest calibre showcasing the extraordinary talent the Eisteddfod attracted over the weekend.

The older they are, the better they are! Past premiership sides gather to reminisce at Mallala Mallala Football Club hosted a reunion for the 1970 and 1990 A grade premiership sides on Saturday, July 31. Organised by Craig Argent and Neil Tiller, the former players and officials enjoyed a three course meal prepared by Julie Griffiths and her band of assistants. They were entertained by a round-byround account of the two seasons, as told by Craig. Leon Broster gave a resume of the 1970 finals campaign, while Graham Schultz did the same for the 1990 side. A great day of reminiscing was had by all who were true to the old adage: “The older we are, the better we were!”
ABOVE: 1970 premiership side – Mallala defeated Hummocks.

It’s AFL draft camp for Josh •From Back Page This year he has played 12 under 18 SANFL matches at Oval Avenue, being in the best players on eight occasions, along with getting opportunities at reserves level in three fixtures. He won the Round 11 Macca’s Cup Most Valuable Player being brilliant in the Eagles’narrow loss to the top-of-theladder Port Adelaide Magpies. Judges said his composure under pressure was excellent and he continually repelled Port’s attacks. He finished the match with 39 possessions, six tackles, seven clearances, six inside 50s and six rebound 50s. “Josh is a mature young man, determined and self motivated,” Eagles talent manager, Shane Grimm said. “Saying that, he is still team orientated, and is a good contributor to team meetings.
“On the field he never seems to get caught, although he doesn’t look overly quick. “His ability to take a mark, when he looks to be out of the contest is pretty special and his work rate is also very good. “Josh has been our best clearance player as well.” The AFL announced last week it would increase the number of players it will scrutinise as part of the search for talent for this year’s 25th NAB AFL Draft, to be held on the Gold Coast on November 18. Growden will be among upwards of 100 players from all states and territories to receive an invitation to attend the 2010 NAB AFL Draft National Combine, formerly the draft camp, held from September 28 to October 1 at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra.

Roosters in the hunt after one point victory Two Wells finally got the Mallala monkey off their back with a nailbiting one point victory on Saturday. The win and subsequent results from other matches has put the Roosters back in the four, and in the hunt for the big prize. Goals were always at a premium in a game where the biggest lead was 14 points to Two Wells at half time, yet Mallala led by 10 points early in the last quarter. Two Wells came out showing
plenty of pace through the midfield, and when Alf Steed commenced a ball movement that ended with Chris Christofis, it gave Two Wells the first goal of the game. A free kick paid to advantage saw Matt Saunders open the scoring for Mallala, and Jason Earl followed up soon after. But the Rooster defence stood firm. A late goal under pressure by the dangerous Paul Christofis wrestled the lead back to Two Wells by a point at the first break. Two Wells had already signalled they were up to the chal-
The Adelaide Crows and New Holland Agriculture have joined forces with members of the grain growing community to create the Grow Crows project. With about 10,000 Crows members, or 22 per cent, based in regional SA, Grow Crows aims to further connect with their regional supporters as well as

There will also be a schools competition where regional schools can enter to win one of 25 Grow Crows

Ned Seccafien goaled for Two Wells and when Ben Spiteri added another, the Roosters were out to a 14 point lead. Lee Allmond hit top form, Ben Spiteri gave the Roosters plenty of spark around the packs and Bryce Hart put Mallala under the pump. Tim

Cawrse repeatedly won the ball at centre half back and kept Paul Christofis quiet. Robert Montgomery played a blinder in the last line of defence with solid support from David Cawrse and James Wildbore. Jason Earl came off this quarter taking no further part in the game. While this was a major blow to Mallala, of equal concern to the Roosters was the sight of key playmaker Alf Steed limping off. Mallala needed to regroup at the half time break because this was a Rooster outfit that had most of the answers. When Daniel Feeley kicked Mallalaâ€™s first goal after half time, it was exactly what the doctor had ordered. Brian Montgomery got his first goal and it was a two point ball game. Mallala did most of the attacking but was let down by some skill errors. Ryan Montgomerie was one defender to have a major influence on the match. Joel Montgomerie also picked up a heap of possessions but cracking the Rooster defence continued to be a big headache for Mallala. Both Khan and Tallan Leighton were in career-best form. Scott Humphrys was rock solid in the last line, the Roosters with plenty of influential contributors. None more so that LeeAllmond who continues to be the major midfield go-to player. It had been a tight wrestle to three quarter time, and there was no indication the last quarter was going to be any different. The Roosters had the aid of a fluctuating breeze but with only one point in it, that alone wasnâ€™t going to get them over the line. The game became interesting when Mallala opened the scoring with a goal to Brian Montgomery. Daniel Feeley followed with his second and Mallala had a 10 point lead. But Two Wells responded. Paul Christofis, able to find a bit of space, pulled one back for Two Wells. Then when Brad Fitzgerald kicked truly from centre half forward, it was the Roosters again by one point. The Fitzgerald goal was the last score of the game. There was a huge roar from the Two Wells supporters as the siren sounded for the narrowest of victories. Every game for Two Wells is virtually a final from now on as they try and consolidate on their win over the ladder leaders.
