‘Why I challenged’

Pain’s reasons for tilt at WRC mayor Wakefield Regional Council mayoral candidate, Richard Pain, claims residents are concerned with the direction council is heading. Mr Pain, who is currently overseas, provided a detailed emailed statement to the Plains Producer which outlined his reasons for challenging incumbent mayor, James Maitland. In his email, Mr Pain, shown addressing a council meeting in May, highlighted the Evans land-use debacle and the handling of Port Wakefield’s Community Wastewater Management Scheme (CWMS) as main concerns of residents. “Residents’ concerns relate to the debt council has, the cost to council in the Evans

LAUREN HERMON reports: matter and how council is handling the Port Wakefield CWMS,” he said. “We have heard a lot about the Evans case and the cost to council, but there has been no mention of the court case involving WRC and the Port Wakefield wreckers which was finalised earlier this year. “ Although not privy to the acutal cost to council, from informatıon I have, it may well be in excess of the Evans case.” Mr Pain, a Port Wakefield resident, has accused council of not being “transparent

and open” on several matters at past council meetings. “The residents also feel councıl is not listenıng to them or being open and transparent on a number of issues,” Mr Pain said. “It is my belief the residents/ratepayers are extremely important and the councillors and mayor are their voices in council and I understand their concerns.” n Continued Page 2

NEWS v District THAT’S DEMOCRACY SAYS MAITLAND:

IN BRIEF

‘Entire council area important’ WAKEFIELD Regional Counci’s current mayor, James Maitland, said Mr Pain had the “right to challenge” him for the position of mayor. “That’s democracy,” he said. Mr Maitland said issues in Port Wakefield needed to be considered in relation to the entire council area. He said all towns and their residents were important. “Council is responsible for the whole large area. It is not just about Port Wakefield or Balaklava or any other town. All need to be considered,” he said.

Mr Maitland, a Brinkworth farmer who was busy shearing yesterday, said Mr Pain’s “brief stint” as a councillor at Wakefield Plains Council in the early 90s was “irrelevant”. He hoped his own experience as mayor would help the district to continue to “move forward”. “I hope to continue (on as mayor) and I hope the ratepayers will see the importance in having previous experience in the role,” he said. “I have had 13 years in the role and I believe my leadership is beyond reproach,” he said.

“A mayor’s role is to run with the decisions of council. Remember, the mayor does not vote unless there is a deadlock.” Responding to Mr Pain’s reference to council’s debt, Mr Maitland said the debt to revenue ratio was “quite low” when compared to others. “But as I said – Mr Pain has the right to challenge me,” Mr Maitland said. “I’ve been challenged before. So be it.”

Lions auction coming up

James Maitland ... “that’s democracy.”

• From Page 1 Mr Pain accused council of “rushing” through recommendations that are “not balanced with full facts”. “I believe from my experıence and what I have seen through both attendıng council meetings and through correspondence with them that the executive staff often appear to be trying to rush through recommendations...and council, by passıng these without discussion, was takıng full responsibility for any future problems,” he said.

South Australians are reminded to turn their clocks forward by one hour this holiday longweekend, with daylight saving coming into effect from Sunday. ‘Summer time’ officially begins at 2am on Sunday, October 3. Daylight saving in South Australia is observed on an ongoing basis from the first Sunday in October each year to the first Sunday in April of the following year. Minister for Industrial Relations, Paul Holloway, said starting daylight saving in the first weekend of October each year had distinct advantages. “In most years, the daylight saving changeover will coincide with both the Labor Day long weekend and school holidays in South Australia.” Daylight saving will end on Sunday, April 3 next year at 3am SA summer time. Balaklava Lions club’s “monster auction” again will be held at Balaklava Showgrounds – on Sunday, October 10. Donated and commission items will be offered for sale. Commissioned lots under $10 will become a donation. Proceeds will be shared between local health charities.

After hearing of Central ward councillor, Avon Hudson’s retirement from WRC last week, Mr Pain said it was “disappointing” to see him stand down “after years of good service to council.” “It is important council has strong leadership after the next electıon as there is evidently going to be a number of new faces in council.” Mr Pain said he believed he could offer strong leadership, due to his past employment of 30 years in the police force. He said working under a solid structure

as well as beıng heavily involved wıth community issues ın Port Wakefield would help in providing strong leadership. Mr Pain is expected to return to Australia this Saturday. Last week, Mr Pain’s son, Darryl Pain, advanced uncontested to Western ward with fellow Port Wakefield resident John Kipling after the retirement of former councillors Scott Kelly and deputy mayor, Barry Nottle. • MORE reports on council elections will appear each week in the Plains Producer.

NEWS v District

Some councillors support Hudson Wakefield Regional Council members appear divided over retiring councillor Avon Hudson’s outspoken parting words, labelling some councillors as “lazy”. After announcing his retirement as Central Ward councillor in last week’s Plains Producer when nominations closed for council elections last Tuesday, Cr Hudson was known to have raised the ire of some elected members.

Lauren Hermon reports: Councillors remained tightlipped at last Wednesday’s council meeting, but when contacted last Thursday, some had more to say. Retiring Western ward councillor, Scott Kelly, said it was Mr Hudson’s “right of opinion”. “Mr Hudson can say what he

wants. I even agree with some of his comments,” Mr Kelly said. “But nevertheless, we’re still there to represent people and get things fixed. “At the end of the day, council makes decisions not the individual,” he said. Existing Northern ward councillor, Greg Stevens, who will again contest for a seat in November’s elections, said he had “no problem”

with how Cr Hudson “perceives things”. “It doesn’t upset me,” said Mr Stevens. Cr Stevens said he had “a lot of respect” for Mr Hudson, who was a key figure in bringing WRC into a nuclear free zone. WRC is now one of a few councils in South Australia to incorporate nuclear-free planning principles in its development plan. Mr Hudson retired at the No-

vember election after serving nearly 22 years on council. No women nominated for council, with Central ward councillor, Kelly Bickle and Western ward’s Jo Lilith, retiring. Residents now will be represented by an all-male council. All councils are now in caretaker mode and postal ballots will be issued in a staggered mail out from October 25. Voting closes on November 12.

Daryl’s shearing marathon

DARYL Andriske shearing at Maro Creek, near Snowtown.

With only two weeks left until his shearing marathon, Daryl Andriske has been getting in some last-minute training. The Blyth communityand Daryl are aiming to raise $10,000 for the Cancer Council SA in his 24 hour shear-a-thon on the weekend of October 9 and 10 at Blyth oval. But so far only half of their fundraising aim has been achieved and they are appealing to the wider public for support. Like many others, Daryl has been touched by the devastating disease, cancer. His mother Lesley died of breast cancer at age 58, and since then Daryl has had the desire to shear for 24 hours to help raise funds to make a difference. Now his desire has became a reality, after sharing his idea with friend Graeme Wandel, also from Blyth. Graeme’s wife Denby also recently battled breast cancer at age 50 and is now fortunately a breast cancer survivor. As other community members jumped on board, the project

Bronte Hewett reports: gained momentum and a committee was formed to organise ‘Shear for Life’ with the support of Cancer Council SA. Daryl said he was expecting the 24-hour shearing challenge to be a real test, but said he was prepared. “I’m prepared to hit a wall during the marathon. I’ll have inspirational notes up around me to spur me on,” Daryl said. He said everyone had been very supportive. “The support and publicity has been fantastic,” he said. “My wife Tracey has also been fantastic, with all the running around and behind the scenes stuff she does.” If you would like to support Daryl and his committee in this super human attempt, please consider donating some money towards the cause. Go to the SA Cancer Council website and follow the link to the

Shear for Life online fundraising page. As part of Daryl’s event, there will also be a fundraising walk taking place on the Sunday morning, starting at 8.30am. The aim is for everyone to join in and then be back at the oval to cheer Daryl on when he finishes. Entry fee is $5 per adult, $2 child, $12 per family (children 16 and under) and breakfast is available from 7.30am (breakfast available before or after the walk). Members of the Shear for Life Committee are Daryl Andriske, Graeme Wandel, Wayne Carling, Scott Edwards, Jeff Weckert, John Pese, Brett Schumacher, Nick Ashby, Gary Zweck, Janet Zweck and Tracey Andriske. The challenge begins at 10am on Saturday, October 9 and will end on Sunday, October 10 at 12pm, with everyone from around the district invited to come and show their support. Blyth Primary got behind the event by donating money raised through their uniform-free day last Friday, September 24.

Farmers use solar power to boost income A group of about 70 farmers visited various sites around Mallala to showcase innovative products and initiatives during the Mallala Agricultural Bureau’s annual bus trip last Friday. One of the farmers visited was Brett Davies, who recently installed four solar tracking systems on his farm, as a means of generating income from solar. The tracking units, provided by the company SunTrix, have about a 25 per cent return on investment and are a great way to supplement the farm’s regular income. The bus tour arrived at Brett’s farm near Mallala where Suntrix director, David Hille, described the units and answered many questions from the group. Mr Hille also explained the government solar rebates and feed-in tariffs. Mallala Ag Bureau member, Rich-

ard Konzag, said solar was a hot topic at the moment. “There was a lot of interest in the solar power from farmers,” Mr Konzag said. “They’re very keen to hear about it.” The annual Ag bureau tour was another success, with the bus overflowing. Other sites visited included Andy Barr’s trial site at Pinery. More information about Suntrix is available at www.suntrix.com.au/ suntrax. • Another field day will be held on the Redbanks property of Paul Blacket next Wednesday, October 6. The day will provide growers with advice on new and existing pulse varieties, as well as harvest and marketing advice. For details, contact Mick Lines at SARDI on 0419 030 332.

Voters in the coming council elections will be able to check what candidates have to say via an internet webpage. But it’s up to candidates to provide the information. In a South Australian council election first the Local Government Association, with assistance from the State government, has produced a candidates webpage where all 1274 candidates for the November elections will have promotional space. LGA CEO, Wendy Campana, said at the very minimum the website would feature a photograph and a short profile of each candidate as furnished to the Electoral Commission SA with nomination papers. Candidates will also have the opportunity to go on-line and add relevant election material to complement the mandatory information,” Ms Campana said. Candidates had until 5pm yesterday (Tuesday) to register their candidate statements on the website www. lgcandidates.sa.gov.au “After that time the LGA will check statement contents to ensure they comply with the legislation,” Ms Campana said. A list of all candidates is also available on the LGA website - www.lga.sa.gov.au/ goto/elections

Rural Doctors Wo r k f r o c e A g e n c y (RDWA) has started work on a project designed to get more Australian trained doctors into rural areas of South Australia. The Rural Pathways project was launched last Friday by Health Minister, John Hill, at the RDWA annual general meeting. The project has been commissioned by Country Health SA. “We have invited organisations who influence and manage key components of doctor education and training,” said RDWA CEO LynPoole. Ms Poole said the response from these organisations had been terrific. Once the project has determined a model that will suit South Australia it is expected a pilot program will be undertaken.

NEWS v Balaklava & District

Call to move dog pound, transfer station FRUSTRATED Wattle Ridge residents have signed a petition against the current location of Balaklava’s waste transfer station and dog pound facility, stating both cause “regular disruption to residents close by.” The petition and a letter outlining their annoyance was presented to council at last Wednesday’s council meeting. In a the letter to council, residents stated: “Residents are regularly subjected to constant barking and howling by dogs locked in the pound. “On occasions the noise has been

constant most of the day and night and has often reached the point where residents’ day to day lives are being severely impacted on.” The petition was signed by nine concerned residents. In the letter, the petitioners also described the rodent problem residents have been experiencing since moving into the estate as a “major issue”. “It seems the transfer depot is a major haven for rats and mice with those homes closest to the deport appearing to be worst affected,” the

letter read. Residents said they were eager to know council’s position on the issue. “We were informed when purchasing land at Wattle Ridge, the pound and transfer station would be moved when people starting moving in,” the letter stated. “It is now two years since the first resident moved in...we feel it is important council be aware of this issue as it is certainly detracting from the otherwise peaceful and enjoyable life that residents enjoy at Wattle Ridge.” WRC chief executive officer, Phil

Barry, said council indicated willingness to consider the developer’s enquiry to purchase the transfer station property. “But to do so needs an alternative site to relocate the transfer station and dog pound,” Mr Barry said. “Such alternative site needs to meet Environment Protection Authority (EPA) stringent planning and licensing conditions of a waste station “Hence the options in and around Balaklava are limited.” Mr Barry said an “ideal option”

was to have a new site accommodate a multi-purpose facility for improved community and operational efficiencies comprising a new works depot, dog pound and waste transfer station. Council has approved in its 2010/11 Budget of provision for a basic scoping study into the requirements of a new works depot (including a multi-purpose facility). “This will provide the new council with options and costings to consider the matter further,” Mr Barry said.

Fay and Geoff Rowland enjoying life at home in Balaklava.

Stepping out on the sunny side of the street They crossed paths while walking down the street in Murray Bridge. She was just 17 and he just 21. She remembered how his friends yelled out saying they had someone who wanted to meet her. But being the lady that she is, she recalled how she wasn’t going to make it that easy for him. “If you want to talk to me you come over here!” she yelled back. And those few steps he took towards her were steps he would remember 60 years later. Now Balaklava residents of 48 years, Fay, 80, and Geoff Rowland, 83, celebrated their diamond anniversary last Thursday. Describing themselves as “blessed”, both Fay and Geoff agree they’ve had their troubles over the years, but there

Lauren Hermon reports: have also been “so many good times”. In their early years of marriage, Fay and Geoff’s seven-year-old twin son, Greg, passed away from leukaemia. They say the troubled times is what brought them closer together. They have three other children, Roy, David (twin of Greg) and Kym. Fay, who grew up in Murray Bridge, and Geoff in Yankalilla, agree country life has treated them well. “I hate going to the city now,” Geoff says. “Balaklava has been good to us,” Fay adds. With wise words, Fay looks at Geoff as she describes what it takes to make a

marriage successful. “Work at it together.Don’t go to bed with a cross word,” she says. “We’ve had our ups and down. It hasn’t always been easy,” Geoff says. Like true soulmates, they finish each other’s sentences.... “It’s the attiude of the mind that gets you through,” Fay adds. So, what’s Geoff’s favourite trait about Fay? “She’s always on the go ever since I first met her.... she likes to live life,” he says. And what about Fay’s favourite quality about Geoff? “He’s always there,” she says. “And she likes telling me off!” Geoff jokingly adds. Quick to defend herself, Fay says, “Yes.....but you make it necessary!”

Property inspections to inspect connection points and other related issues with Port Wakefield’s community wastewater management scheme (CWMS) have been completed. Letters were posted to the town’s property owners last month which included inspection request forms stating inspections, if requested, were to start September 6 and end September 17. A report by WRC environmental services manager, Elca McCarthy, stated: “Of the 263 applicable properties, 135 forms were returned by the closing date of September 3. “Of these, 79 requests for inspection

were made. To date, of the 29 inspections completed on September 6 and September 7, two issues were identified for further reporting.” According to Ms McCarthy, the two issues had already been noted in a letter from project engineer’s, Wallbridge and Gilbert, dated July 2. According to the report, most inspections related to owners confirming inspection points, additional understanding of the scheme and general satisfaction. A detailed report on the overall inspection program will be provided to council at next month’s council meeting.

Police show interest

A man had an unexpected surprise at Balaklava Show over the weekend when he was handed back a generator he had owned which allegedly was stolen from Dry Creek two years ago. The man saw the generator being used to operate one of the Balaklava sideshow rides and contacted police. When confronted by police, the ride operator, who co-operated with police, said he had purchased the generator from a man in Wingfield at the start of the month. The man was ruled out as a suspect after providing tax invoices. The generator, worth about $10,000, was unique to the original owner as he had built the exhaust system himself. Police investigations on the matter are continuing.

Dogs are known as man’s best friend – however it can be a testing relationship at times when canine crimes such as chewed shoes, messy carpet or a yard full of holes are involved. Avoiding the pit falls of pets behaving badly can be significantly reduced by making wise choices about the canine company we keep, according to leading veterinarian Dr Mark Perissinotto. Here are the top 10 most intelligent dog breeds, as ranked by VetShopAustralia.com.au. 1 Border Collie: leader of the pack for supreme intelligence, drive and devotion.

Max’s badges a ‘grand’ effort

‘Managed growth’ key to Roseworthy’s planning A meeting between Light Regional Council (LRC) and landholders to discuss preliminary ideas for managed growth at Roseworthy proved an “excellent starting point,” according to LRC mayor, Robert Hornsey. The meeting, held on August 27, follows the signing of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between council, the University of Adelaide, Regional Land Pty Ltd, Hickinbotham Developments Pty Ltd and individual landowners. The MoU confirms the essential framework and accountability for planned, locally sustainable growth. “This meeting was a platform to start the ideas flowing for well-

managed growth for Roseworthy,” Mayor Hornsey said. “These concepts include the need for appropriate infrastructure, excellence in urban design, creating a sense of belonging and identity for people who will live in the community, efficient use of water, including stormwater and designing safe and walkable neighbourhoods. “We need to look at the best ways we can achieve all these fundamental elements to deliver a modern, self-sufficient community that will bring local jobs and local facilities. “All these things will make a great, self-sustaining community that people will want to be part of.”

Mayor Hornsey said council was looking forward to working with its community to achieve well-managed growth at Roseworthy. “We are at the very early stages and community collaboration and contribution will be key to shaping the vision for Roseworthy,” he said. “We look forward to fully engaging with our community in the near future.” Meeting attendees also included representatives from council, the Department of Local Government and Planning, Regional Development Australia – Barossa and the neighbouring councils of Gawler, Barossa and Mallala.

Vets warns of snakebite season You were with him to the “max” and now your support has paid off. Year three Balaklava Primary School student Max Heaslip, who was diagnosed with cancer last year, was presented with a cheque for just over $1,000 at BPS end-of-term assembly last Friday. The fund-raiser was organised to allow Max to buy a special toy to donate to the Brookman Ward at Adelaide Women’s and Children’s Hospital. Max badges, mirrors and earrings

– designed by BPS principal, Dale Gathercole’s daughter, Amy – sold fast for about two months. Donations from Balaklava and surrounding communities were also made. Pictured with Max is his mum, Tanya, who said she appreciated all of the support people have shown Max. So, with cheque in hand, there was just one thing Max wanted to ask his mum. “When can we going shopping?” he said with a big smile!

Snowtown accused ‘mentally unfit’ The man accused last year of a knife-wielding rampage in Snowtown was ruled mentally unfit to stand trial. The accused, Demal Behari, denied having any memory of ramming several people with his car and slashing an elderly woman’s throat last April. Two leading South Australian mental health experts told the Supreme Court last Thursday Behari was “unfit to plead”.

“He has been perplexed and unable to account why he is in trouble,” forensic psychologist, Dr Kenneth O’Brien said. “More recently, he has become aware he has an illness but has never been able to understand why he is being held.” Behari was charged with various counts of attempted murder and endangering life.

Veterinarians say they are expecting lots of snakebite cases in South Australia this summer due to an extremely wet spring. “We’re warning pet owners to be vigilant as the wet spring means a good breeding season for snakes with lots of food around,” says Dr Andrew Nathan, president of the South Australian Division of the Australian Veterinary Association. “Vets have already had lots of cases of snakebite throughout

South Australia in recent weeks due to snakes being flushed out by the torrential rain,” Dr Nathan said. “Dog owners should try to avoid snake prone areas, particularly if they are walking their dog off the leash at the end of the day. “It’s important for pet owners to be aware of the signs of snakebite as you may not actually see your dog being bitten. “Signs to watch out for include seizures, vomiting, bleeding

Holidays won’t stop young gardeners Students will have something productive to do these school holidays as they help to nurture and maintain a new ‘sensory’ garden at Balaklava Primary School. The garden will have a variety of plants and herbs that appeal to the senses such as; feel (texture), smell, visual and taste. Lettuce, jade and lavender will also be grown. Students from the Balaklava Primary School grounds committee will visit during holidays to water the plants. The project came about after Balaklava Primary School grounds committee met with parent Sandy Burden to dis-

cuss the idea of creating a ‘sensory’ garden. A survey was distributed to staff, students and the school’s governing council where two plans were put together aftering reviewing the survey results. Students were then given the opportunity to discuss which plan theypreferred. A bird box, wind chimes, and seating are just some of the features in the garden. The project is expected to be finished by the end of the school year.

NEWS v District LEARNING ON MENU FOR AVON FOODIES ADULT Learners’ Day was held at Avon recently. With Avon Hall decorated with bright coloured balloons and posters of Mr Veggie Man everywhere, it was a happy atmosphere for the day. Theme for the day was “healthy cooking”, supported by the local Community Foodies in conjunction with the Avon Art and Craft Guild. Health workers from Lower North Health Service, Adele and Carolyn, talked on nutrition and what to watch out for when reading food labels. Bringing fun to the day were Zina the Zucchini (Irene Sparks) and Carolyn the Carrot (Sue Mudge), who were kept busy handing out goodies from sponsors to fill guest’s sample bags. Guests came from across the lower north including Port Wakefield, Mallala and Clare. Demonstrations and tasting were part of the day and included as part of a healthy lunch. Dick May and Robert Bartholomaeus were presented with certificates in recognition of work framing the Avon Fighting Forces Comfort Fund banner which had been presented to the committee earlier in the year.

Letter to the Editor To keep up-to-date with technology

• It’s important that Australia keeps pace with worldwide changes in technology • Overseas programs are increasingly being produced in the digital format only • Australian TV shows need to be produced in the digital format to be easily exported overseas

To free up broadcast space

• In Australia, TV is currently broadcast in both digital and analog signals • This is costly and inefficient • Turning off the analog signals will free up space that could be used for other services for the community

To improve your viewing experience

• Picture and sound quality on digital TV is better • Pictures on digital TV can be seen in widescreen • You’ll still have the same free-to-air channels, plus some new ones, so you’ll have more choice

New home for Marie’s chairs A point of clarification in your article ‘ Marie says farewell to her Balaklava landscape’ (Plains Producer, September 1). Marie Jonnson- Harrison’s mosaic chairs were vandalised whilst in the May Terrace/ Short Terrace parklands. Since being restored, Balaklava Primary School has become their proud carers. They will be placed in the sensory garden our students are currently constructing (see report, Page 11) Balaklava Primary School has had a long association with the Harrison family. Kai and Hillivi were active members of our school community from reception to year seven, Bryan was a governing councillor who also designed our lovely gazebo and Marie involved our staff and students in a number of projects e.g. the mosaic animals and floor tiles on the Federation Wall, as well as teaching term time swimming for many years. We thank them for their positive input to our school and the Balaklava community, and wish them happiness in their ‘city’ life. Marcia Nowlan, reception teacher Balaklava Primary School

Optimism grows as farmers take Hart

ABOVE: Robin and Tim Cawrse, of Wasleys, take a closer look at some of the trials on show. INSET: David Cawrse, of Mallala, catches up with Donna Marks and Ryan Montgomerie, from the University of Adelaide Barley Improvement Program.

... with ‘five golden rules’ for the next generation Picture-perfect surroundings reflected an excellent start to the cropping season and a tinge of renewed optimism amongst grain growers at the 28th annual Hart Field Day last Tuesday. About 600 growers and industry researchers and representatives attended the event from as far away as Western Australia and Buckleboo on Eyre Peninsula. Hart Field-Site Group chairman, Matt Dare, said attendance was up by about 20 per cent on last year’s crowd and he was “absolutely stoked” with the success of the day. “The site looked magnificent, everyone was looking forward to a good finish and good crops and the quality of speakers and the trials made the day a success,” he said. “There’s more optimism around because we’re going into spring with a lot of moisture under the crops and prices are historically high.

Report and pictures, Gabrielle Hall “We’ve just got a few hurdles to get over, such as the uncertainty of locusts and the possibility of a wet harvest. Hopefully, prices stay up, so we’re not over the line just yet – but things are looking really good.” Former Mid North farmer, CBH Group chairman Neil Wandel, who now farms a 17,000 hectare farm at Esperance in Western Australia, was guest speaker and had some positive messages, particularly for young farmers. It was an entertaining insight into his personal experiences, with Mr Wandel also sharing his “five golden rules” for success on the farm, including– look after your wife/partner; look after your soil; don’t borrow money on any machinery unless it earns you money; be a leader but

don’t be a gambler; don’t waste a good year – put some money aside for a bad year. A special presentation was made to three former Hart Field-Site Group members – founding chairperson Kevin Jaeschke, Linden Price and Phil Harris –for their tireless efforts and personal backing for the future of the site. Two tonnes of seed were given away as a gate prize, with Shawn Rayson of Princess Royal Station, Burra, winning a tonne of certified Scout wheat seed and David Parker, of Long Plains, winning a tonne of PBA Gunyah field pea seed. Highlight of the day was the wideranging series of trials on show and industry speakers gave a first hand insight into the trials and answered questions from attendees. Among the trials and topics discussed were pulse and oilseed herbicide tolerance, an update on climate change, fenceline

weed control, soil acidity, canola varieties, revegetation and windbreaks, barley, oat, triticale, lentil, pulse and pasture varieties, plus a huge range of others. Static displays were on show, including a machinery display by the event’s principal sponsor, Rocky River Ag Services. Gold sponsors for the event included Viterra Ltd, Stock Journal, Landmark, Australian Grain Technologies, Megafert, CBH Grain, Rabobank and Grain Assist. Vital industry support was also provided by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), Caring For Our Country, Woolworths, Landcare Australia and the Northern & Yorke NNRM Board. • SEE how things are developing as harvest approaches, with the free Hart Spring Twilight Walk on Thursday, October 21, at 5pm.

lmost 2,500 people from all over the district attended another fun-filled Balaklava Show last weekend. With numbers up from last year, Balaklava Show secretary, Nollene Grigg, said the beautiful weather “topped it all off” for the town’s huge event held at Ralli Park. While crowds braved the cold windy weather at last year’s show, this time the sun came out to play on Saturday while kids and adults alike enjoyed their ice-creams and fast show rides. “We couldn’t have asked for a better day to have the show on,” Nollene said. The shrills and laughter of kids as they rode the popular show rides and indulged in their showbags brought smiles to faces. Nollene said there were many

ALL THE SHOW RESULTS ARE ON PAGE 22 Lauren Hermon reports:

other highlights on the day which brought joy to show-goers, like Wobbles the Clown’s hilarious little skits and country rock tunes from Lee Brocky and Outback Overdrive. “Some people who were watching the band perform didn’t move throughout the day because they enjoyed the music so much,” Nollene said. Another popular face at the show was evening radio presenter for 891 ABC Adelaide Radio Station, Peter Goers, who opened the show. “I think a lot of people just came to see him,” Nollene said. About 750 showbags had sold out by midday with gate takings on the rise compared to last year. The Balaklava show person

competition attracted many young people wanting to represent their town’s show. Rural ambassador winner was Kevin Marriott and runner-up was Matthew Keating. Show prince winner went to Joshua Michael and runner-up to Dylan Williams. Holly Antic won show princess and Kayleigh Parker was runner-up. Sianna Bond won mini Balaklava Show person with Jack Heaslip runner-up. Sub-junior winner was Amy Langdon and runner-up was Jessica Heaslip. The junior winner was Caleb McPharlin and runner-up Sophie Parker. Aliza Hedaux won youth rural show person. Other big hits were the shearing competition, animal nursery, the camel and pony rides, and wood

chopping which drew big crowds. The horse competitions were a great success, with 950 horse entries compared to 803 entries last year. With hot foods, sweets like toffee apples, fairy floss and ice-creams going down a treat, food and drink intake was high according to Nollene. “Balaklava Primary School catered for the luncheon in the sports club, which was also very successful,” she said. The number of utes entering the ute competition was also increased, with 42 entries compared to 25 last year. The Balaklava Museum display attracted history buffs, where photographs of old motors and other historic memorabilia were on show. “Each event, ride and stall was a success in its own way,”Nollene said. “Everybody put in a great effort.

It really is team work that makes it such a great success.” And team work is still going strong despite the show over for another year. Nollene said the team was busy on Monday morning cleaning and clearing away stalls from the oval. In his final year as Balaklava Show president, Shayn Faehrmann, was also impressed with the success of the show. “It was well supported and the good weather made for another funfilled family day,” Mr Faehrmann said. Excited by the festivities the show brings each year, Nollene already is getting excited about next year’s show. Anyone who is interested in helping out next year should contact Nollene on 8862 1440 or 0437 037 412.

Enthusiasm high at Tarlee Following extensive recruiting, the small bowling club at Tarlee has entered another side in the Wooroora Bowling Association, division two, this season. Bowls SA coach, Kelli Wray, held a coaching session for new and old bowlers at Tarlee, encouraging them to be more confident in their approach to the game. Amongst the group were several junior bowlers who joined the Junior Development Squad, which is being formed in the area. Club president John Perry said the club is very enthusiastic

about the coming season, and that juniors in particular are showing great skill at the sport. The club is seeking additional players to enable the two sides to be filled consistently this season. – Tarlee secretary John Tayler PICTURED ABOVE: Bowls SA coach Kelli Wray demonstrates to Tarlee bowlers.

Aaron motor cross champ After competing across the state, Two Wells teenager Aaron Hart was recently named South Australian motor cross champion for his class. The 14-year-old placed first in the 2010 SA MX Championship Title in the 85cc/150cc Big Wheel Class on his motorbike. Aaron also finished in fifth place overall in the 250cc 4 stroke class and is currently representing South Australia at the Nationals in Lake Macquarie, NSW. He is competing in the 2010 Honda Australian Junior MX Championship from Sunday, September 26 to Friday, October 1. With hopes to one day turn motor cross riding from a hobby into a job, Aaron was first introduced to the sport when he was three. “Dad used to race, so he

got me into it,” Aaron said. His dad, Michael Hart, was also a successful rider at a state and national level. “I’d eventually like to ride in America and turn it into a job,” Aaron said, adding he enjoyed the thrill of the sport. “It’s fun, I like winning with the adrenalin and I meet lots of good friends,” Aaron said. But it also provides plenty of opportunity for the youngster to travel. Having competed in Queensland at the start of the year, he’s also been to nearly every corner of SouthAustralia. The first round of the state championships was held at Mount Gambier, the second at Wingfield, the third at Port Pirie, the fourth at Port Augusta and the final race was at Murray Bridge.

We’re good – very good in fact– but not so good as to wrest folks away from the combined clout of both the Balaklava Show and a certain grand final, so in low numbers yet high spirits, 13 players stumbled along for a Stableford round last Saturday. Faced with such a small field, we elected to just have an overall competition, which was won handsomely by Dean Trickett with 46 points, ahead of hard-hitting Andrew Bastian (38) and near-future A Grader Corey Temby (37). It remained for the following to gather with these greats and catch the final half of the footy, back at the 19th: D Addison (36), D Robinson (36), J Curnow (35), I Michael (34), A Henstridge (30), P Freebairn (29), M Hameister (29), D Taylor (28), G Toms (27) and M Bell (24). Big Dean Trickett also claimed the day’s sole Birdie at the eighth. This week we have the “Proof Range” shooting up a storm on Friday and you’re welcome to front for the fray - ring Sapper Nagle (8523 1589) if you’re keen - then on Saturday it’s a good ol’ blood’n’guts Stroke round (Starter Gerry Toms) before the big one, our Mens’ Open Day on the Sunday, when we’ll be in hands of our glorious Match Committee. A big field is expected and of course, you can make it even bigger by participating, so please rock up and if possible, bring a salad to contribute towards the major nosh-up afterwards.

Jake Bowden smashed his way to a B Grade win with 43 points from Gary Payne and Ian Smith. Malcolm Frost caressed his way around with 45 points to take C Grade from Steve Kelly and Bingo Barns.

Tennis lower north

The Lower Northern Tennis Association held it’s AGM last Tuesday night at Owen. Allan Baker of Nantawarra was elected president, Ben Pym of Long Plains was elected vice president, and Christine Scott (nee Lindner) will continue as secretary/treasurer. This season (2010/11) will start on Saturday October 16, with Owen/Grace Plains hosting Dalkey in a grand final re-match, and Long Plains hosting Nantawarra. There was also a change made to the Heat Rule – we will now be working on a Friday night forecast of 37 degrees or above for Elizabeth on the channel 7, 6pm news rather than 37 degrees or above for Adelaide on Saturday morning.

special 3 page feature v HAY SEASON

Exporters urge: ‘Cut high and early’

Hay season is fast approaching with an above average yield expected after the big rains. However the high yield will decrease quality of hay. Gilmac site manager, Mark Heaslip reminds farmers to cut high and cut early. “Quality will be slightly lower on the bottom due to higher yield, so cut higher to help improve feed test results,” Mr Heaslip said. While some areas have started mowing, the season is expected to begin around Balaklava in the next couple of weeks. But this will also depend on the weather. Mr Heaslip said there had been enough rain for the hay season and dry weather until the end of baling would be ideal. New rules and regulations for transporting hay are also something farmers need to keep in mind. “Make sure you’re

the recent plague and Mr Heaslip said heavy baiting would provide the best protection to ensure it didn’t happen again.

Carrying hay bales

Transporters carrying bales of hay that are at least 2.4m x 1.2m x 1.2m in dimension will need to follow a Code of Practice set by the State government. This code applies when a vehicle is carrying only large rectangular baled hay which exceeds the overall height and width dimension for the vehicle and its load is 4.3 metres high and/or 2.5 metres wide. This code does not apply to the transport of hay in containers or crates. Transporters can only operate under this code when carrying the prescribed size of baled hay if they are operating a vehicle combination that is an articulated vehicle (prime mover and semitrailer), where part of the semi-trailer has a deck height of one metre or less and the semi-trailer has a tri-axle group.

Not only is such an act in contravention of control-of-use legislation, it may result in the harvested product being unsaleable at significant cost to the landholder due to residue occurrences in excess of legal standards.

Crop watch is vital in battle against locusts Authorities are urging landholders to closely monitor their properties for locust activity. The abundance of vegetation throughout the southern agricultural zone could result in hatchings going unnoticed. Authorities across all states, with support from the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), are encouraging landholders to therefore closely check paddocks to ensure hatchings are promptly reported so control measures can be activated. The Australian Plague Locust Commission (APLC) says even though forecast peak hatchings may be some weeks away in many districts, hatchings will continue

to occur from now on. “Landholders need to monitor predicted hatching dates by constantly checking the APLC website at www.daff.gov.au/ animal-plant-health/ locusts/current and start checking for hatching several weeks before the forecast peak hatching date,” said Chris Adriaansen, director of the APLC. “All locust outbreaks, be they adult swarms or hatching nymphs, should be reported immediately to authorities.” The campaign to manage the predicted plague continues to intensify and chemicals and resources have been deployed in readiness.

Winner of the hay competition at Balaklava Show last Saturday was Grant McPharlin. Balco field team consultant and judge of the competition, Noel Bubner, looked for specific winning criteria. Hay without disease, brown leaf and hay with finer stems were just some of the criteria which made Grant’s hay top quality.

Warning on locust chemicals this year. Landholders must be vigilant in protecting all crops and pastures from spring locust hatchings by using targeted applications of registered or permitted insecticides.

Advice for hay, grain growers

C

utting crops for hay or windrowing them in preparation for harvest can minimise locust damage or eliminate the need for chemicalcontrol. Baling or silaging crops and pastures before locusts hatch is another management tool. But remember, insecticides must be approved for locust control by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA). All landholders also need to be aware of their responsibilities under State legislation. You must observewithholding periods

(WHPs) for grain, hay, pastures,meat, milk or any other production following the use of chemicals to control locusts. All producers need to be aware of Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) and must follow the label at all times. Every insecticide used in the fight against locusts has a harvest withholding period (WHP). Consult the specific label for the withholding period. For windrowedcrops, the windrow date is the same as the harvest date when considering chemical control options. The WHP must expire before crops are

Receival standards vary with crop type. Cereal crops: (wheat, durum wheat,barley, triticale and oats): the maximum allowed live or dead is three field insects per half litre of grain or seed. One locust counts as one field insect. Canola: the limit is 10 large field insects per half litre of grain or seed, including hoppers. For example, eight locusts and two smaller hoppers still reach the limit of 10 large field insects. This includes body parts. Pulses: acceptable standards allow a maximum of 30 dead or live field insects per 400 gram sample. If you are harvesting during an outbreak/infestation, start with the paddocks with the lowest population first or delay harvest. Locust-contaminated grain may have to be cleaned to meet harvest receival standards. Grain buyers may require declarations of pesticides used for locust control.

The usual problems surface every year. 1) Sanitation – off flavours from infection of wort. Cough medicine aromas. 2) Not rinsing or using the correct cleaning solutions. Minimize use of chlorine solutions, use sodium netabilsulphate. 3) Fermentation temperatures – too high gives vegemite-like aromas, too low gives estery/butterscotch. Overall very good.

CUT FLOWERS Aggregate Points in Orchids – J Hoskin, Aggregate Points in Cut Flowers – Lois Lewis, Champion Pansy – P Kozlowski, Champion One Spike Cymbidium Orchid – J Hoskin, Best Cut Flower – M Bishop. JUDGE’S COMMENTS- It was disappointing to see the number of exhibits below normal. However in most cases the quality was good. The lack of sunshine in the last 2 weeks resulted in flowers that had not reached their potential. The quality of Ranunculi’s was very good but I was disappointed with the pansies. Calendulas were very colourful and the size and quality was good. Exhibitors should set Iceland Poppies up higher on their stems this is how they grow. Unfortunately too many flowers were just placed in a bottle and not plugged. Exhibits staged this way are penalized because the flower is not presented as it should be. Congratulations to Exhibitors and thanks to stewards and helpers.

FLORAL ART Best Exhibit in Class 79 –Joy Maxwell, Champion Bowl – S Welke, Aggregate Points in Open Floral Art – Lois Lewis, Champion Exhibit – J Maxwell, JUDGE’S COMMENTS – Open Section – Wonderful to see the ‘art’ of floral art still happening at the show. Congratulations to all competitors. Children’s Section - ‘Wicked’ - very creative.

CAGED BIRDS Best Budgie in the Show – Kevin Smith, Best Young Budgerigar – L & H Edwards, Exhibitor gaining Most Points – Kevin Smith, Best Unbroken Cap –, Best Opposite Sex –, Champion Large Parrot –, Champion Small Parrot – Barry Hayes, Champion Foreign Parrot –, Champion Cockatiel – Barry Hayes, Champion Love Bird – Barry Hayes, Champion Australian Finch – JP & M Harris, Champion Foreign Finch – Barry Hayes, Best Finch – JP & M Harris, Best Zebra Finch – JP & M Harris JUDGE’S Comments – Budgerigars – Another good show of Budgerigars. Feather Condition a problem with several of the birds. Best in show had a poor tail but so did many others. The best young bird came close to best in show but not the same length (smaller) as the best in show. Finches & Parrots – I was pleased to be asked to judge the finches and parrots, there was not a big number of birds, but the birds presented were up to standard. There was the odd one with

Champion Steer – Jed Wilson, Champion Heifer – CW & RG Parker, Aggregate Points in Commercial Cattle – Jed Wilson JUDGE’S COMMENTS – A good quality yarding of 22 cattle were shown to the judge. But only a small number of exhibitors.

CONTAINER PLANTS Champion Plant or Plants in Bloom – Julia Hoskin, Champion foliage Plant – Julia Hoskin, Champion Orchid – D Beare, Champion Fern - Lois Lewis, Highest Aggregate Points in Container Plants – Julia Hoskin. JUDGE’S COMMENTS – Orchids disappointing to be back bulbs not cleaned this is important. Pots how much is lost because of the condition of the pots, tip buy a can of WD40, it will clean pots up to a wonderful condition (plastic and earthenware). Display excellent, great group of Stewards to work with and Convenor is on the ball. Good range of exhibits especially window boxes, ferns down a bit this year. I think that there is good encouragement to exhibitors – keen exhibitors. There is always something to learn at this show. You should be proud and Peter Goers was thrilled.

Which is a shame. Some articles were finished off, but others needed a little more attention. The patch work quilts were of very good but I was disappointed that some of them were

the wrong size, please make sure that next year you measure your quilts before entering them. The hand embroidery was very good, very few items but they were of good quality. The smocking is an art and is very good.

SHEEP JUDGE’S COMMENT – A smaller yarding Sheep and Lambs were judged but the quality was very good due to the good season. The champion lamb was an excellent animal.

Soft feather bantams were of very good standard and hence the champion bird of the show a very well prepared and conditioned black pekin pullet. The quality of the white Wyandotte and pekin bantams was excellent and well presented. Waterfowl presented a challenge with some birds not presented well, but there were some outstanding birds particularly the natural mallards the drake taking out champion waterfowl. My thanks for the invitation to judge, my first time at Balaklava. I would like to thank the Balaklava Show Society for the invitation to judge at their show. OEG Bantams some very good females, modern games small numbers but a standout pile male reserve of the show. Heavy Breed fowls Rhode Island Reds good numbers not many other breeds, light breeds small numbers. Juniors some very good birds in this class. Overall a good showing of Poultry, well presented.

DEFENCE PROOF & EXPERIMENTAL ESTABLISHMENT PORT WAKEFIELD: LIVE FIRING RANGE WARNING NOTICE Test and evaluation activities involving static firings and/or firings of naval and artillery weapons are conducted at the Proof and Experimental Establishment Port Wakefield throughout the year. The Proof and Experimental Establishment Port Wakefield is a vital Defence test and evaluation capability that has supported Defence since 1929. These firings may require specific tidal or weather conditions, and are critical for the safety of current and new Defence capabilities. Members of the public may notice noise, vibration, flashes and/or smoke during the testing. There is no risk to the public outside of the gazetted Defence Practice Areas. For reasons of public safety, there is a permanent exclusion zone covering land, sea and air around the Port Wakefield Establishment. Specific details on the Port Wakefield Prohibited Area can be obtained from Commonwealth of Australia Gazette No GN 26, 4 July 1990, and is shown on the diagram below. Trespassing in this Area is strictly prohibited and very dangerous due to the presence of unexploded bombs. Any person found within the Prohibited Area or on Defence land will be subject to prosecution.

Specific details on the Port Wakefield Prohibited Area can be obtained from Commonwealth of Australia Gazette No GN 26, 4 July 1990, and is shown on the diagram below. Trespassing in this Area is strictly prohibited and very dangerous due to the presence of unexploded bombs. Any person found within the Prohibited Area or on Defence land will be subject to prosecution. Specific test and evaluation activities may also require restricting public access to the Port Wakefield Defence Practice Areas over specific periods with these areas articulated in the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette No. GN 40, 7 October 2007, and also identified on the diagram below. This may affect access to the Gulf of St Vincent at Port Wakefield and Port Parham. If any member of the public has inquiries in relation to these activities please contact Proof & Experimental Establishment Port Wakefield – Range Control, on (08) 8867 0270 between 8.00am and 4.30pm weekdays or the Proof & Experimental Establishment Port Wakefield – Security Office, on (08) 8867 0299 outside these hours.
