‘STOP IT’

Mayor warns against ‘disruptive’ behaviour

The conduct of some councillors and members of the public gallery at council meetings has been described as “disrespectful” and “disruptive” by Wakefield Regional Council mayor, James Maitland. The message comes after another fiery council meeting at Wakefield Regional Council (WRC) last Wednesday night, where members of the public and some councillors allegedly acted “inappropriately” . At one point during last week’s council meeting, the first meeting of the new council, Port Wakefield resident, Richard Pain, an unsuccessful mayoral candidate at the recent council election, stormed out after tempers flared in the chamber. Outbursts from the public gallery continued throughout the meeting, forcing Mayor Maitland to call order, threatening to require certain people to leave. “I hope it never has to come to that point; when we do need to get

people to actually leave,” mayor Maitland said this week. “Respect needs to be put back into the system. “This behaviour is distruptive to councillors and staff, and is unnecessary. “Other attendees in the public gallery with general interest in the meeting are also denied opportunity to listen without such disruption.” Members of the public are able to have their say during public question time at WRC. Not all councils have this session available to gallery members, and instead only provide the standard formal deputation method. WRC chief executive officer, Phil Barry, said a person in the gallery had since informed him they had struggled to effectively hear meeting deliberations due to outbursts and interruptions

from certain gallery members last Wednesday. Mr Barry said the legal framework for the conduct of councillors – and members in the public gallery – during a council or committee meeting was important. Regulation 29 of the Local Government Act “Procedure at Meeting Regulations” says: “A member of the public who is present at a meeting of a council or council committee must not behave in a disorderly manner or cause an interruption.” The maximum court penalty if a member of the public breaches this regulation is $500. Mayor Maitland said he would reinforce the consequences of unnecessary outbursts from both members of the gallery and councillors before the next council meeting, on December 15. • More news from the newlook council, Page 2.

Joe forces Mallala council rethink

In a major setback for development plans in Two Wells, a proposed shopping centre will be delayed after a motion by local councillor Joe Daniele was approved on Monday night by District Council of Mallala. The 6-5 vote means council must immediately stop negotiations with the government to purchase and then sell public land. Cr Anne Picard put forward another motion that no further action be taken on the develop-

But the result would be less than satisfying for many locals who have seen years of discussion on the proposed shopping centre. • Continued Page 25

Legal advice sparks fresh WRC dispute

Spicing up school with flavour of Indonesia Mallala Primary School’s Indonesian Market Day was a great success last Thursday. The school’s Indonesian teacher, Ann-Marie Ellis, said children took responsibility for deciding what the day would become. “They chose what was going to be at the markets and designed posters themselves,” she said. Parents were invited to join children as they spent their “rupees” at the market. Also featured were Indonesian kites, bracelets, fruit sampling, incense holders, and lots of delicious food. The day ended with an Indonesian “MasterChef” cook-off. Winner was year six student, Tahli Shaw, who blew the judges away with her fruit and chicken kebabs served on a bed of jasmine rice and peanut sauce.

WAKEFIELD Regional Council (WRC) claims legal advice received has cleared it of any wrongdoing after a motion was disputed by several community members. However, WRC was not out of hot water at last Wednesday’s meeting, with some councillors questioning why ratepayer-funded legal advice was sought in the first place. The motion, passed on July 28 regarding the controversial Port Wakefield Community Wastewater Management Scheme (CWMS), was immediately attacked by new councillor John Kipling in his first speech. “The motion was ‘Wallbridge and Gilbert (W&G) consult with every land owner accompanied with a licensed plumber to discuss practical connection points, as per the LGA guideline, and clarify any outstanding issues’,” Cr Kipling said. “I don’t believe this has ever been carried out and I’m wondering why, if the motion was passed, it wasn’t done.” Outgoing environmental services manager, Elca McCarthy, responded swiftly. “The legal opinion is ... the actions taken by council...in relation to the Port Wakefield CWMS are consistent in the spirit and intent of that resolution,” she said. This sparked an ongoing and at times heated discussion between Cr Kipling and Ms McCarthy, who continued to repeat the legal statement. “So you’re saying it (the motion) wasn’t carried out?” Cr Kipling said. “No, I’m saying it was carried out,” Ms McCarthy again stated. “The way we (WRC) dealt with it was within the intent of the motion, that’s what the legal opinion is.” Mr Kipling kept probing. “I’m just asking you, was there a licensed plumber, that went around with a (W&G) representative (to every land owner).” “No, that’s not what you asked,” Ms McCarthy responded. “You stated you believed it was not acted upon as per the intent of the resolution.” She then repeated the legal advice once more. Fellow new Western ward councillor Darryl Pain joined Cr Kipling’s line of questioning. “We’re saying, that was the motion, they bring a licensed plumber and con-

sult the landowner?” he asked. The question was lost amidst shouting from the small but vocal gallery. Once the room was called to order by mayor James Maitland, the question was forgotten and went unanswered. The legal advice issue was reintroduced by Cr Greg Stevens. “I just wonder why council needed to seek legal advice,” he posed. “Personally I don’t think it’s (the motion) been complied with.” WRC CEO, Phil Barry, defended the decision. “...Which is why legal advice can tell you it has been (complied with),” he said. “Certainly, if there are issues, we seek legal advice. “It was a hot issue that had been disputed. We received a letter from Mr Richard Pain last night that indicated a big issue over that, so we thought ‘let’s get legal advice’ to confirm, one way or the other, whether that resolution was adhered to or not.” Mr Barry continued: “What I suggest is; let the council members get the legal advice and then if you wish to raise it at the next council meeting, that’s the process to go through,” he said. “Once you’ve read that, and dispute that, then by all means, bring it up at the next meeting.” Cr Pain believed WRC staff should be referring to elected members to decide if passed motions have been upheld. “Does the office staff decide to seek legal advice on something that council members have voted on in a motion?” he asked. “Shouldn’t you (council staff) have come back and said ‘this is what we have done, do you believe as councillors that we have carried out your motion?” Mr Barry said once a motion was passed, the responsibility of carrying it out fell on council staff. “Implementing that resolution is an administration matter,” he said. “That’s why there is a dispute and that’s why it is appropriate (we sought legal advice). “It is not unusual legal advice was sought – to clarify one way or the other.”

NEWS v District

Setting it straight ELCA McCarthy, watched by CEO Phil Barry and mayor James Maitland (left) delivers her prepared report at last Wednesday’s council meeting. In the immediate foreground is Port Wakefield resident Richard Pain, who was addressing council. – PICTURE: Les Pearson.

Elca delivers a parting shot at Port Wakefield’s protest group Port Wakefield’s Community Wastewater Management Scheme (CWMS) and the resignation of council’s environmental services manager were hot topics at last Wednesday’s council meeting. The shock resignation of Wakefield Regional Council’s environmental services manager, Elca McCarthy, was greeted with applause by the public gallery as chief executive officer, Phil Barry, made the announcement. News came after Ms McCarthy read a prepared statement in response to Port Wakefield resident, Richard Pain’s detailed questions in his latest letter to the mayor, received the night before. The statement contained detailed responses to Mr Pain’s questions, including “why all property owners were not consulted with and why a plumber did not inspect in company with engineers, Wallbridge and Gilbert”. Ms McCarthy

Lauren Hermon reports: stated at the meeting, “the letter, (which was sent out to all property owners) read, property owners had been invited to have a W&G representative, an independent plumber and council officer to discuss connection points. While they didn’t require an inspection, W&G and council officer did check through the town and determined that in some instances properties may be better serviced by an alternative connection point location.” “Be assured, Mr Pain, that council staff all work together in the interest of the ratepayers,” she said. Ms McCarthy said she was offended when Mr Pain stated herself and council’s environmental health officer, Lynda Painter, had “no authority to discuss connection points.” In her statement, Ms McCarthy

said, “we are qualified and act on behalf of council as the relevant authority, under the P&EH (waste control) regulations from plumbers for waste control systems including CWMS. Therefore we are more than qualified to deal with matters regarding septic tanks and CWMS.” While Ms McCarthy read her responses on paper, new Port Wakefield western ward councillors, Darryl Pain and John Kipling, were vocal in disputing comments made. When contacted by the Plains Producer last Friday, Ms McCarthy said she had her own reasons for resigning. “As far as issues being raised by certain residents,the Port Wakefield CWMS project has no impact on why I’m leaving - in fact the large project is one of those enjoyable challenges knowing the longterm benefit to the town.” Ms McCarthy admitted there had “possibly been a lack of consultation” with

property-owners. “But I’ve never denied this,” she said. “Unfortunately for council and ratepayers, the Port Wakefield project was taking me away from many community projects which are currently on the go.” Wishing council all the best, she said, “It’s a sustainable and fantastic council.” “There are terrific communities, such as Blyth, Brinkworth, Hamley Brdige, Owen and Snowtown that work really well with council to get results.” “Likewise in Port Wakefield, there is the football oval and golf course which are working with council to get irrigation going.” Completion of the town’s CWMS is expected by the end of the year, but Ms McCarthy won’t see the final result. Her resignation is effective next Friday. Ms McCarthy has been in local government for more than 22 years and nearly nine years with WRC.

Schools likely to merge in 2013

Balaklava high and primary schools will now be expected to merge in 2013. The two school governing councils were informed of the extended amalgamation which was originally scheduled for as early as mid next year. Balaklava High School governing council chairwoman, Louise Michael, said the extension, advised last week, has given both governing councils “breathing space” to keep up the campaign.

“We’re not happy we are being forced to amalgamate but we’re happy we don’t have to do it immediately,” Mrs Michael said. The school governing councils have been in ongoing discussions with the Department of Education and Children’s Services (DECS) and have made contact with relevant ministers to discuss the issue. In other developments, Balaklava High School principal, Mark Healy, has spoken to Education Minister, Jay Weatherill, who told

Mr Healy he would visit Balaklava. This was now likely to be next year. “Mr Weatherill has indicated he was concerned about the process and how it all unfolded,” Mr Healy said. “He was quite receptive. I am positive about the conversations I’ve had with Mr Weatherill. It’s a good start,” he said. Both governing councils approved a letter to be sent to relevant ministers at its meetings held last Wednesday night.

Mrs Michael said she had also contacted the 67 co-located schools forced to merge and share in just $27 million between them. If Balaklava schools’ earlier plans were successful, they expected to receive up to $20 million to merge the campuses. Mrs Michael said the councils were still working on a positive outcome to ensure “good, educational facilities for students”. “We’re hopeful of positive outcomes,” she said.

Carols will send harmonies throughout Mallala on Sunday, December 12 from 7pm at the oval. Co-ordinator, Judith Cawrse, said there was plenty to look forward to this year. “The Barossa band, Eden, with Jennette Mickan, have become an integral part of the evening and they return to pump out the Christmas tunes, both those lovely old carols as well as more contemporary numbers,” she said. Mallala’s legendary Cockies Choir, which is drawn from the Ag Bureau, will also be singing two songs. “They are a rare and dedicated bunch who even agreed to a practise or two after harvest started,” Judith said. This group only ever get together once or twice, often squeezing the last practise in an hour before they perform. Dawn Ross, who has been involved at Mallala Primary School over the last six months as Christian Pastoral Support Worker, will fill the ‘What Christmas means to Me’ spot. “Dawn has become quite a favourite to the local school kids and it is a chance for the rest of the community to meet her,” Judith said. Well known pair Anne Arbon and Helen Verner, who combine as Harmony, will also add their flavour to the night. Judith said the pair featured in the first carols in 2004 and were making a welcome return. The evening will finish up at about dusk with free homemade biscuits served at the footy canteen servery. The supper has become as memorable for some as the music and entertainment is for others. Gather some family and friends, take your chairs if you want or sit in the grandstand with a coffee mug and settle down for a great evening of local community entertainment. Unfavourable weather won’t deter this crowd, with the football clubrooms a back up venue. The evening is all free with the option of a gold coin donation. Pinery

Wakefield Plains CFS group officer, Chris Cowan, said both brigades had been responding well. The Balaklava station was demolished earlier this year but the service is still operational. “The appliances are within close proximity of the town and it might add a couple of minutes to the turn out time,” Mr Cowan said. He said it is business as usual for the Hamley Bridge brigade. “There is no difference to the call out procedures there was with other

Les Pearson reports: previous years - none whatsoever.” An article published by The Advertiser claiming local communities are at a higher busfire danger than usual was described as partially incorrect and ‘a bit of a beat up’. The article, headlined ‘Left out on their own’ (Page 3, Friday, November 26), claimed “rural communities would be at higher risk of bushfire danger because a dispute between the government and a contractor has stalled the building of new fire stations.” “I don’t totally agree with everything that was in there,” Mr Cowan said.

The article went on to state CFS stations in Balaklava and Hamley Bridge “were all demolished earlier this year”, which came as a surprise for Hamley Bridge brigade captain, Fred Holtmann. “In our case, that’s not correct,” Capt Holtmann said. He said the Cooper street station is still well and truly standing, with the brigade due to move into the recently demolished RSL hall in the town. “You couldn’t get a decent sized station on the current site we have,” Capt Holtmann said. He said the Balaklava brigade remained extremely efficient. “I know Balaklava don’t have a station but they’ve got alternative

places for their vehicles and everything else and there’s no problem,” he said. “We had a fire on Tuesday (near Pinery) and they were out there quicker than anybody else.” The building delays, caused by a financial dispute between contractor Unique Building and the South Australian Fire and Emergency Services Comission (SAFECOM), have frustrated the affected brigades. “We’re disappointed we haven’t got the new station up and running by now,” Mr Cowan said. “We were told it was going to be completed before the fire season, but it’s not the be all and end all. “It’s reason to be concerned but not scared.”

Mr Cowan said there were much bigger issues on his plate at the moment. “I’m more concerned about the lack of volunteers we’ve got,” he said. “It’s across the board at the CFS. We’re struggling for daytime crews. So if we can’t get a crew, we have to call brigades in from other areas, which delays things anyhow.” Mr Cowan said most of the brigades in the Wakefield Plains group trained at 7pm on Monday nights and anyone interested in getting involved was welcome to come along and join. “There are a lot of very healthy young persons in the town or the area, who perhaps, if they wanted to commit to something, would be very good firefighters,” he said.

Arson suspected in crop fire POLICE have labelled the cause of a fire at Grace Plains, just outside of Mallala, on Sunday afternoon as suspicious. The fire is alleged to have been started in dry grass on the side of Nairne road, before burning north through to Hallion road. Strong southerly winds quickly fanned the flames into adjacent crops. About 40 hectares of barley was destroyed, worth about $32,000. The CFS had 17 fire appliances attend and quickly brought the fire under control. The fire started on a property belonging to Rocky and Carol Hall and spread to a partly reapt paddock farmed by Andrew and Tania Pratt. Barossa Crime Scene personnel attended and examined the scene. Wakefield Plains CFS group officer, Chris Cowan, attended a meeting with other fire and police authorities at Gawler on Monday morning. He said nothing new surfaced from the meeting. The location of the ignition point is generally a great place to determine

FIRE units at the scene of the Grace Plains fire on Sunday. – PICTURE: Nicole Parker. the cause but in this case, the ignition point area has failed to yield. “The fire trucks drove over the point of ignition, so we couldn’t really find anything there,” Mr Cowan said. “The first priority is get the fire out, then find the cause. “If we can find the cause, that’s good, if we can’t, then so be it.” Mr Cowan said his

own investigations had been equally as inconclusive. “I had a bit more of a look at it (Monday) morning on my way down (to Gawler) and it’s just a lot of black ground,” he said. “There’s no powerlines in the vicinity or anything that we could pinpoint that could start it.” A positive point to

come out of the fire was the phenomenal help from locals, whose quick response played a major role in getting the blaze under control. Light deputy group officer, Tim Jenkin, said their contribution at any incident was extremely valuable. “In situations like this, all help is needed to get on top of any fire and with the growth

around this year, it had the potential to become catastrophic,” he said. “The quick arrival of private units that came in had a huge impact on the outcome and was very much appreciated. “These intances make us proud to be part of a community there for each other.” Another incident earlier in the day made it a busy weekend for local

brigades. The blaze, about three to four kilometres north west of Balaklava, burned about 17 hectares of barley farmed by the Taylor family. The fire ignited after the knifedrive on a harvester jammed, with heat from the friction sparking the fire. There was no damage to the machinery. Police urged all landowners and residents to be particularly vigilant

in relation to suspicious vehicles and persons during the fire danger season. • About one acre of grass was burnt last Saturday after a Two Wells man lit a fire during fire danger season. The camp fire at Two Wells, which got out of control, ignited dry grass around his home. He was issued with an infringement notice.

Research on Wakefield whale An autopsy has been carried out on the dead humpback whale floating in Gulf St Vincent, about 1km off Port Wakefield. Scientists from the South Australian Museum have been investigating the cause of death since the six metre whale was found by a local fisherman early last week. It was tied to a channel marker and then taken to Adelaide last Wednesday for an autopsy. David Stemmer from the museum said the carcass would be used in scientific research which may improve conservation efforts. “We take a whole range of measurements and will take a lot of samples, some for toxic contaminant analysis

like heavy metals, others for genetics and will examine it carefully from the inside, peeling back the blubber and seeing if it was hit by something,” he said. When contacted by the Plains Producer, Mr Stemmer revealed slight bruising on the carcass. “We didn’t find anything in the stomach. But the bruising suggests it may have been hit by something,” he said. The skeleton may be displayed as part of the museum’s collection. “The main purpose at the moment is to use the carcass for study,” Mr Stemmer said. • Autopsy results were expected today (Wednesday).

NEWS v District

Salvemini ruling AN Adelaide-based fishing company and the skipper of its vessel have been fined a total of $87,000 by the Industrial Court over the death of former Port Wakefield man, Jack Salvemini, more than five years ago. Jean Bryant Fisheries and freelance skipper, Arthur Markellos, had earlier been found guilty at trial for breaching sections of the Occupational Health and Safety Welfare Act 1986. Mr Salvemini suffered fatal injuries after being caught in fish net meshing as it was being wound onto an on-deck spool. Basic details about Mr Salvemini’s death, such as time of death and where the vessel was at the time of the accident, remain a mystery. “The family of Jack Salvemini need these questions answered but they’re not going to get them from the Industrial Courts,” Voice of Industrial Death spokesperson, Andrea Madeley said.

Three white doves were released by sole-surviving Rowe family member, Christopher, at the funeral of his parents and little sister who were murdered at their Kapunda home a few weeks ago. Mourners gathered at Kapunda Oval last Friday to pay tribute and say a final goodbye to Andrew, Rose and Chantelle who were brutally stabbed at their home. Many of Kapunda’s 3000 residents attended the service at the town’s oval. An 18-year-old Kapunda man was charged with three counts of murder and is being held in custody.

NEWS v Lochiel & Kybunga

First step back in time, then celebrate! Lochiel Hall will be receiving a mini revamp over the next four months in preparation for the hall’s centenary celebrations on March 27 and 28 next year. Lochiel resident John Nicholls is part of an unofficial planning committee for the event and said it would be a great chance for current and former residents to catch up on a more positive note. “It will give people a good excuse to catch up, rather than funerals being the main thing to bring people back here,” he said. The weekend is set to feature a dance and entertainment evening on the Saturday, while Sunday will be a lunch get together featuring more of the local history. A community lunch was also held in August this year to mark the centenary of the hall’s foundation stone being laid. A time capsule, found behind the hall’s foundation stone in July, was also opened. The small bottle was unearthed by Blyth builder Craig Lloyd in front of a small gathering. Lochiel Progress Association president Nick Ottens opened the capsule in front of about 100 people at the event. Inside was a newspaper, a few coins of mainly English currency, and a letter penned by JH Nicholls. The letter was only brief, mentioning names of trustees at the time. Not in the capsule itself, but still in the wall behind the foundation

WAKEFIELD REGIONAL COUNCIL

John seeks more council recognition Newly-elected Northern ward councillor John Wood, has big plans for the small towns in the district. A Kybunga resident, Councillor Wood said all too often “most of the emphasis is put on Balaklava” and the smaller towns in the Wakefield Regional Council area were neglected. Towns like Blyth, Brinkworth, Snowtown and Owen were towns which Cr Wood claimed needed attention. “I’d like to see smaller towns maintained,” he said. “I know it may be hard with so much emphasis on Balaklava.” He has been proactive in enhancing the historical background of Kybunga. “We’ve already erected about three plaques in town to show the history of the area,” he said. “We’re keen to put up more plaques in the near future.” • Cr Wood is pictured with a plaque, located near Kybunga’s Post Office, showing information about the town. The maintenance of road signs, roads and keeping rates as low as possible for landowners are high priorities on Cr Wood’s agenda. The former Eastern ward

and surrounds were welcome. “So far, we have received copies of photos, (some) information and a salt encrusted ram’s head, donated by the Uppill family, of which we are most grateful,” he said.

special feature v Christmas Messages

Tarlee has learning covered The official opening of Tarlee Primary school’s covered outdoor learning area was held this Monday. The school gathered, with about 40 locals, to celebrate the area which helped create about 40 jobs during its construction. The structure was built as part of the Australian Government’s Building the Education Revolution. The school received $300,000 under the National School Pride program and Primary Schools for the 21st century element of the Building the Education Revolution. The Building the Education Revolution is a key element of the Federal government’s $42 billion Nation Building – Economic Stimulus Plan to support jobs, stimulate lo-

cal economies and invest in important infrastructure for the long term. Federal Member for Wakefield, Nick Champion, said the Building the Education Revolution was reaching an exciting phase. “It has been fantastic to see the principal, school staff, parents and tradespeople working together to deliver these important projects, Mr Champion said. “Now they are completed, teachers and students in our local schools will be teaching and learning in 21st century facilities they so richly deserve,” he said. Mr Champion was scheduled to open the addition to the school but was called to parliament at the last minute. Representative for Mr Champion, Matthew Werfel, was present on

Tarlee Primary School principal, Allison Tilley, said the outdoor learning

area, equipped with a basketball court, would encourage students to increase their exercise. Member for Frome, Geoff Brock, was also present. Guests enjoyed

a luncheon catered and prepared by students on the opening day. The school used the outdoor learning area for the first time last Friday for a school concert.

FORMER local couple Trevor Wright and Leanne Hill are the new owners of the Tarlee Motel. After four years, the pair were looking to move back to the town. Trevor said while they have family in Tarlee, their love of the town was also a big reason for coming back. As freehold owners of the Tarlee Hotel, Trevor and Leanne saw the motel as a good investment opportunity and have already begun work revamping the business. The Tarlee Hotel is operated by Helen Hatch. New queen size beds now feature in almost all rooms, while there are plans to reopen the motel’s restaurant. “We’re just looking at

Dogs NSW is calling for all pet owners to learn and understand first aid for all companion animals. When a loved pet is injured, one of the best ways to help is to stay calm. Talking to your dog in soft and reassuring tones is a fabulous way to turn a turbulent situation into a harmonious one. If a dog appears to be unconscious and is suffering cardiopulmonary arrest, rescue-breathing and chest compressions can be used to save its life. Fortunately, this is often not required in real life situations. Make certain that the dog is unconscious before attempting chest compressions. A dog that is merely sleeping would not appreciate unsolicited

Dogged first aid not second best assistance. Initially, talking to your pet and gently touching to arouse from sleep can minimise the chance of any injuries to the rescuer, should the dog regain consciousness and defend itself. Dogs NSW recommends that you only attempt doggy first aid on your own dog, and that children are not encouraged to participate. Dogs are a pack animal and can act unpredictably. Car accidents involving animals and pets can leave them in a situation where they are unable to help themselves. Territorial fights can result in cuts and abrasions, which cause pain and discomfort to your best

friend. Breaks and fractures are easily identified without anything more than the most basic of first aid knowledge. These can easily be treated with a splint and bandaging. Bleeding can be slowed by applying a pressure bandage, in much the same way as we would for a human injury. Doggy First Aid is not very difficult and can be very important for the comfort of our four-legged friends. If any animal is in discomfort or distress, Dogs NSW recom-

mends that you first call your veterinarian for advice. A trained expert in animals can assess the situation and let you know how to best proceed. But we don’t always have a veterinarian nearby and it is easy to reduce the pain and suffering with some of these simple steps. “We can look after our pets just as we look after our human loved ones. Remembering to stay calm and avoid being squeamish will make the difference between life and death,” suggests Dr Higgins. “And it feels great to be able to help someone you love.”

inch, and that selection can increase its range a twenty-fifth of an inch.” From the Weekly Times Farmers’ Handbook (c.1938): ‘WHEN BEES SWARM: One of the things the novice beekeeper wants to know is how to deal with bees when they swarm. If the swarm settles where it can be easily reached, hiving is not difficult. Place a clean box large enough to hold the swarm underneath it, and shake or brush the cluster of bees into the box. Have a cloth covering ready to place over the box. Let the bees remain in the box for three or four hours.

From The Central Advocate of September 25, 1903: “MEASURING BEES’ TONGUES: An instrument adapted for measuring the length of bees’ tongues does not strike the average individual as supplying any particular need. But then the average individual does not keep bees. As a matter of fact in the new apiculture the length of the insect’s tongue is regarded as of supreme importance. The longer the tongue, the greater is the bee’s honey getting capacity and a new apparatus, the glassometer, is designed to aid the apiarist who, by judicious se-

NEWS v District

The gift of caring The season of giving is upon us as the Target Uniting Care Christmas Appeal begins for another year. Uniting Care celebrates its 19th year of bringing Christmas cheer to local children and families who are less fortunate. Organiser, Brenda Cross, said the job was challenging but also very rewarding at the same time. “Each year the list of names increases, making our job more challenging than the last,” she said. Ms Cross said many families in the area last year were surprised and grateful to receive beautiful gifts. Balaklava Primary School Christian pastoral care worker, Kathy Ottens, pictured with some of the gifts, said the cause was very worthy. “Last year parents were so grateful to receive these gifts for their children and it was so wonderful for them to know someone actually cares about them and their children,” Kathy said. n If you would like to help out with the Christmas appeal by donating money this year, contact Brenda on 8823 2082.

Are you ready for digital TV?

Analog TV signals are being switched off around Australia, region by region, between 2010 and 2013. After this date, all areas of Australia will receive digital TV signals only. You can check to see if you’re ready for digital TV by answering the questions below.

Watching digital TV

For each analog TV you own, do you have a set top box OR digital TV recorder OR alternatively do you have a TV with a built-in digital tuner OR subscription television?

2

Recording digital TV

Do you have a digital TV recorder OR is your VCR OR DVD unit connected to a set top box?

3

Receiving digital TV – antennas, cabling and reception

Is your reception ok? If your current analog reception is good, in most cases your digital reception should be fine as well. However, if you do have concerns about your reception, you may wish to contact an Endorsed Antenna Installer to check your antenna and cabling to find out exactly what you’ll need.

Help is available

If you can’t answer ‘yes’ to all three questions, don’t worry. Approved Digital Advisors at participating stores can provide advice on digital TV and recording equipment and help you understand your options. Endorsed Antenna Installers can assist with cabling, antenna, satellite and reception issues. To find your nearest Approved Digital Advisor or Endorsed Antenna Installer – or if you have any other questions – visit our website or call our information line.

Triangle carols

It’s that time of the year again! Preparation for carols in Balaklava’s Triangle is well underway and set for Saturday, December 12. There will be a picnic tea for people to enjoy from 6pm. Carols start at 8pm. The Triangle’s pine tree will be turned on this Sunday until after Christmas Day. It will be run by a timer from 8pm to 11pm each night, helping the town take on a festive spirit.

School bus action plan at Snowtown

WITH the impending cancellation of the Lochiel to Snowtown school bus route, area school principal, Cheryl Glenie, already is taking steps to secure travel arrangements to the school for affected students. Rather than dwell on what may be lost, Ms Glenie is on the front foot, launching a bid to secure a lease vehicle that could not only maintain the bus run for students from the Lochiel area but also act as a handy travel option for the school during school hours. “If it is at all possible to make this happen, I want to make it happen,” she said. “We have such a lovely school here with so much potential and I don’t want to lose any students (who are going) to the school.” Ms Glenie is yet to hear from the relevant authorities in Adelaide to confirm the route’s future one way or the other but her contingency plan will be one pushed at a joint governing council and bus route committee meeting this month. Ms Glenie claims the initiative is also better financially than losing the six students to another school. “Yes, it will cost money, but if we lost those students, we would lose even more money,” she said. The suggested vehicle would seat 12 students, which would accommodate most class sizes at the school, making it perfect for school excursions. “It is also the largest vehicle I could find where you don’t need a bus driver’s licence to drive it,” she said.

Mulch solves many garden problems

Sprinkle, sprinkle little stars

Mulching is very important. To mulch means to cover the surface of the soil or growing medium with a layer of material eg. straw, leaf litter or bark chips. Mulching is the solution to many of the problems that beset Australian gardeners, it makes gardening easier and, depending on the material used, it can also greatly enhance the visual appeal of a garden. In our frequently hot, dry, infertile soils, mulching is a great problem-solver. Mulching reduces evaporation. This means less watering is necessary. This saves time, money and is environmentally desirable. It is particularly valuable in areas where soil salinity is high. Mulching keeps soil temperatures cooler. An exception to this is the use of black plastic as a mulch, which is undesirable for a number of reasons and particularly because it increases soil temperatures to such high levels in summer that many roots are destroyed. It also can lead to oxygen depletion, inadequate watering and root damage. Layers of paper are often used under mulch as a weed suppressant but this may attract nematodes. Thick layers of paper can also be colonised by termites. Mulch should not be applied any thicker than 75mm. Fine mulch should be applied more thinly eg 40mm; coarser material can be applied more thickly. Mulch that is too thick causes deoxygenation and this can kill plants. Lawn clippings need to be thoroughly dried before using as a mulch, otherwise the material can form a waterproof crust. Mix them with leaf mould or compost them. • Source: www.global-garden.com.au

SPORT v Bowls

Wasleys hands Balaklava another loss After a gloomy start to the day, bowls proceeded at all venues last Saturday with many close results being produced in both Divisions. In Division One news, Wasleys inflicted Balaklava’s second loss in a row with a two-shot win despite having only one rink up.

By John Glistak, WMBA secretary Mallala also upset the more fancied Owen combination by a single shot. The final match saw Riverton comfortably defeat Port Wakefield with all rinks up. Hamley Bridge had the bye

for this weekend’s round. Riverton has extended its Division One lead to 19 points ahead of Balaklava with Hamley Bridge and Mallala both sitting a further four points behind. The feature match this weekend will see Balaklava host Hamley Bridge in what is a crucial match for both sides. Balaklava has a three win – three loss record, with one washed out round, so far this season compared to Hamley Bridge’s two win – one loss record and three washed out rounds. Hamley Bridge has won their last two matches while Balaklava has now lost two in a row. On recent form, Hamley Bridge will be favoured to inflict a further loss on Balaklava. The Owen – Port Wakefield clash carries with it much importance as both sides strive to stay in touch with the top four. n PETER Sullivan, Owen watches on as Allen Carslake, Port Wakefield gives his teammate a line.

Port Wakefield has won two of their three matches during November while Owen failed to win any of its matches. This form would suggest that Port Wakefield may load the advantage despite the match being played at Owen. Riverton hosts Wasleys in the final Division One match with the competition leaders favoured to extend their winning streak. Mallala has the bye for the round. Division One – November 27: Mallala 65(10) (I. Stuart 27, P. Furst 16, J. Evans 22) def. Owen 64(2) (B. Parker 23, G. Simpson 22, G. Harkness 19); Riverton 85(12) (B. Mullins 28, M. Griffiths 26, N. Rogers 31) def. Port Wakefield 48(0) (R. Murphy 12, M. Rankine 16, R. McQuire 16); Wasleys 63(8) (G. Rendell 23, D. McQuade 20, D. Olive 20) def. Balaklava 61(4) (T. Clifford 16, B. Taylor 22, D. Lamond 23). Division One standings: Riverton 67 (+122), Balaklava 48 (+62), Hamley Bridge 44 (+56), Mallala 44 (-25), Port Wakefield 39 (-19), Owen 26 (-75), Wasleys 18 (-121). Division One – December 4: Balaklava vs Hamley Bridge, Riverton vs Wasleys, Owen vs Port Wakefield, Mallala bye.

Close results were the order of the day in Division Two play last weekend. Mallala White secured a one shot victory over the more fancied Balaklava Red combination despite having only one rink up. Riverton Black also with only one rink up secured a much needed win over Hamley Red. Other narrow wins were recorded by Balaklava Blue and Mallala Black. In the top of the order clash, however, Balaklava White continued as the only remaining undefeated side following their comfortable win over fellow contenders Hamley White. Tarlee Red and Owen were also victors in the remaining matches of the round while Tarlee White

had the bye for the round. The standings in Division Two now see Balaklava White and Owen lead the competition with Hamley White and Balaklava Blue taking the next two positions. A logjam of sides follows with the next seven sides only separated by a spread of four points. Three of this weekend’s Division Two matches feature sides from within this group of sides with results likely to go anyway given the evenness of the competition. In other matches, Owen, Port Wakefield Blue, Balaklava White and Hamley White are likely to be too strong for their respective opponents. Balaklava Blue has the bye for the round. Division Two – November

SPORT v Basketball

St a r s i n t r a i n i n g Peter Todd from SA Country Basketball visited Balaklava on Friday, spending an hour with young basketballers, working on skill development. Peter is pictured (centre) with, back from left: Ethan Brownlie, Lexi Taylor, Lexie Tiller (front) Lachlan Michalanney, Jacob Battle, Jazmin Fitzgerald, Emily Gaze and Brielle White.

Suddenly umpires! Lachie legend lives. Those of you who, like Dribbler, don’t understand this, check out Tim Winton’s books at the library…unless you were at basketball Friday night! It was Dribbler who told me Lachie’s a legend. He was not the only one, but according to Dribbler and Ray Bennett he sure is one. On Friday night there were no referees for a number of the nine o’clock games. Lachlan Michael, bare foot but willing, took the whistle and single handedly made a game for two desperate teams, the Hawks and the Eagles. What a legend! There were more – Jarrad Dunstan, after umpiring his very first game and then playing, took up the whistle with mate and new-to-umpiring Chris Veitch to umpire another. His mother Michelle also missed an early night to help with another game. Another Michelle – Tiller – sacrificially again gave her best to umpire yet another game. Stephanie McArdle took the place of Kara Fiebig, if that is possible, just to make things work.

Friday Night Lights Adelaide Plains Basketball Report By Three Points

Craig Stowers then, after a torrid single handed game, continued on with young Alexander Wilson to umpire another. What legends! But wait! There were more. Players often forget that without umpires there’s no game. Umpires try their best and as Lachie found out, it’s a lot harder than you realise. Players who just get on and play know this, and there were quite a few of them. They too can consider themselves legends. There were plenty of exciting games again this week. Dribbler tells me the B Men’s game between Long Plains and Magics was even when they went into the last quarter. He said he was amazed by the torrid turning under the basket by tall Bret Sharman, who put in some tough rebounds. But it was probably young Corey

Temby who lifted in this last part. Going with the flow, he put in some slick goals to seal the match for Magics. Peter McMillan and “Alby” Olsen were great support. That was Dribbler’s opinion. Long Plains and Bulldogs played games not to be missed. They had everything. In A Women Tegan Nottle was again slick and effective for the Doggies, but Dribbler reckons things would have been different if Longies were at full strength. Longies were too good though in theAMen, probably due to Jamie McArdle’s appearance, according to Dribbler. It was the ‘Ross Sharer show’ to me, as his basketball sense and skill gave Longies the edge. It was the third quarter that gave Young Guns their edge, outscoring Owen 12 to five. Owen nearly matched them in the last with Beau Traill trying everything. They needed a couple more three pointers. Seven were thrown in the game, five by Owen, giving Dribbler and I something to talk about. We had plenty to talk about, especially after

watching the two point game in Under 16 Boys between Bulldogs and Owen. We have some impressive talent in these younger grades. Josh Appleby opened the scoring for the Doggies and with Buzz Taylor, were the main scorers. Jayden Wedding opened the scoring for Owen, but eight of his team mates scored to give Owen the edge, Mitchell Woollatt dropping in the last two points. One thing Dribbler noticed, and he has an opinion on everything, was that winning teams in the women had fewer fouls while in the men, they had more. There were two other two point games, and these were in the Junior Boys and Senior Girls. The boys’ game looked liked the Bulls as for most of the game they were 10 or more up. They did win, but Samuel Carslake and Mitchell Lawrie gave it their best shot and nearly got there. The other between Celtics and Wildcats was more defensive and tighter, with the more all round team Celtics taking out the honours. The two ‘Cs’, Ciara and Carly, played well and according to Dribbler gave their team the edge. In Junior Girls down on court six, Dribbler watched the Suns go down with the sun in his eyes. He was told that the bench was on the eastern side to create more space and make things safer. It is a good idea, but not much fun for the watchers on the bench side. Dribbler thought he was seeing double until he realised 33 Aurora and 53 Sophia are sisters. The Suns tried hard, but the skill and maturity of the Bulldogs gave them a big win. Blessing Nyoni caught his eye, scoring strongly at the start of the game. Height was definitely in their favour and they seemed to enjoy playing together. We also enjoyed the night as it was the kind of weather we want. See you next week.

SPORT v District

Gold for Paul at Pan Pacific Masters Games VETERAN pilot Dene Newton with qualified instructor Colin Strauss.

Soar across the skies!

IT was gold on the Gold Coast for former Balaklava footballer Paul Nowlan, his team collecting the top prize at the Pan Pacific Masters Games earlier this month. His team finished with two wins and a draw from

its three games, with Nowlan picking up the MVP award for his performances throughout the tournament. Paul, now 46 and living in Buderim, on the Sunshine Coast, Paul is the sister of Balaklava teacher Marcia Nowlan and son

of Maureen Underwood, of Port Wakefield. He still turns out for his local over 40s team each week. • Paul is pictured with some of his team, from left: Paul Nowlan, Andrew Taylor, Chris Barrett, Grant Foot and Jamie Andriske.

AS the air heats up with summer rolling in, Balaklava Gliding Club is welcoming anyone interested in trying the sport to come along and give it a go. The warming weather gives them the chance to soar across the district at heights to 10,000 feet. Gauging by the large number of visitors to the club’s display at the recent Clare Show, there should be no shortage of student pilots this coming season. Visitors to the airfield are not only able to take an air experience flight with one of the club’s qualified instructors, but members are also keen to show prospective pilots around, introduce them to other members and explain how the club operates. Flights of 200 to 500km are common, with one member soaring over 1100km last year in one flight. Members

come from across Adelaide as well as the Mid and Lower North districts. The club airfield is at Whitwarta, 12km north of Balaklava and operates both Saturday and Sunday on any weekend. New members quickly discover new skills under the tuition of the club’s competent instructors and soon discover the passion that our pilots have for safe, fun and affordable flying. Gliders can legally be flown solo from age 15. Some members use their acquired flying skills as a steppingstone into the RAAF or commercial flying, while others enjoy the new dimension to their land locked life that they find in the sport. Visit the clubs website: www.bgc.asn. au for plenty of information on the club and contacts to learn more.

APPROVED PLAYER POINTS SYSTEM:

Clubs adopt new plan

• From back page One bylaw adopted by the APFL is the scaling of the total points rating for clubs depending on their win/loss ratio over the past three seasons. Premiers for 2010 Mallala will have a total points rating of seven, Hummocks-Watchman Eagles nine, Balaklava and United 10, Virginia and Two Wells 11, and Hamley Bridge 15. TheAPPS also states a junior player selected to play in a club’s senior team has a points value of minus one, encouraging clubs to nurture local talent. If circumstances suit, a struggling club can apply to the Community Football

Board for more than 15 points. Community Football has also set up an independent investigation committee if any points disputes arise, taking pressure off leagues where vested interests could affect outcomes. APFL president, Brad Busch, said most local clubs were in support of the system, although he admitted there will be those displeased with the decision. “You can’t please everyone all the time, so you’ve got to try and strike a happy medium,” he said. “If everyone (all leagues) gets on board across the state, I think it will work fairly well.”

United will feel the pinch ONE club most likely to feel the pinch under the new Approved Player Points System (APPS) is United. Club committee member James Rundle, said the club maintained a positive stance about the change. “It’s just a matter of looking after the juniors better than we and other clubs perhaps have in the past,” he said. While there will be some limitations for the Tigers in the near future, Mr Rundle said the club would eventually benefit from the system.

“It will in the long term, yes,” he said. “We’re all positive and once things iron out in the next year or two, it will be a good system to work with.” With 10 points to play with, Mr Rundle said the club had to make the best of the hand it had been dealt. “The formula is what a majority of clubs voted in favour of, so that’s what we’ll play with,” he said. “Obviously, more points would be better, but that’s not the formula we’re operating under.”

Approved Player Points System

Q If a player moves to an area specifically for work purposes, does he attract a points rating?

A Some leagues have made contingencies for such situations, but it is not published in the APPS document. “We left that out completely because it is an area that could be abused by some clubs,” Mr Rosser said. Q

A player, who is not a club junior but has played about, for example, four years of A grade, spends a season at another club. Does this player incur points if he returns?

22 www.plainsproducer.com.au

FAQ s

A No. If a player plays 25 senior

games or more at a club, he is zero points to that club for the rest of his career.

Q

If a junior player goes to Adelaide to play SANFL football at either senior or junior level, does he incur points when he returns to his home club?

A No. As long as it is his junior club of origin, he would attract no points. All players are zero points where they played their junior football. “We’re trying to protect the home club,” Mr Rosser said.

Each year Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in Australia and around the world, with the sole aim of raising vital funds and

awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and depression in men. Hundreds packed the hotel’s front bar to vote on the best ‘mo’ grown and donate to the cause. Winner of the best mo went to A grade cricket captain, Ryan Darling, while worst mo went to rookie entry Ryan McPharlin.

“Just to raise awareness on this issue is a great thing for the community and this club,” Darling said. “I’d also like to acknowledge the efforts of the young blokes like Maxy (Ryan McPharlin), you take inspiration from these types of efforts and to grow a moustache like this means so much to me.”

Ryan on top of his BMX game • From back page “I landed on the right side of my face in Spain and hurt one side of my head pretty bad.” “That kind of slowed me down and I couldn’t ride for the rest of the time.” A swollen face and bloodshot eye resulted from the fall, which was enough to keep him off his bike for exploring the French riding domain. Amazingly, for someone who spends a lot of time in the air, this was one of Ryan’s few major injuries. While he said it was a bit disappointing to get injured, the experience of riding abroad was still amazing. “It was really cool being in a different country and meeting so many people with the same interests,” he said. Now back in Blyth, Ryan returned

to work as a builder with his father until his next adventure takes him to another corner of the globe. “I’d like to keep travelling and try to get to America next,” he said. “Austin in Texas is meant to be pretty good for riding.” Through meeting other riders in Europe, Ryan said there were plenty of opportunities to travel. With Adelaide BMX shop Little Black Bike as his major sponsor, Ryan has been picked up by other sponsors United, Primary and Stowaway. He’s also featured on the front page of ‘Focal Point BMX’ magazine. But despite the places he has visited, he said the BMX track right in his back yard was still good fun. “I like the freedom to be creative and cruise around exploring new

places,” he said. “I think riding is something I’ll always do,” he said. “I’ve always done it for fun and probably always will.” He recalls the early memories of watching the older boys in Blyth when he started riding about 10 years ago. “I remember watching guys like Dan and Matt Richards and I used to follow what they did on the little BMX track in Blyth,” he said. “That’s pretty much how I got involved.” He’s now also involved in the local Youth Advisory Committee (YAC), helping to improve the Clare skatepark for other keen and future riders around the district. “It’s good to have a bit of input into the local riding scene,” he said.

SPORT v District

Get set for Ham ‘n Turkey Ambrose Golf Balaklava men

As the weather cleared last Saturday, so too did a few heads among the 26 who took to the greensward, in search of fame and glory, for a par competition. Heading the A graders up the red carpet was Merv Hameister in his plus fours plus a score of +4, beating the pants off Tate Michael (+4) courtesy of a count back and knocking the Tam o’ Shanter of Bill Parkin (square) into the shrubbery. All this high drama scotched the ambitions of R Butterworth (-1), I Michael (-3), M Loy (-3), D Taylor (-4), W Lokan (-4) and a rather wobbly W Nagle (-7). Our substantial B Grade field was humbled by a resurgent Bill Berry (+3), who rumbled John Michael (square) and tumbled Corey Temby (square) down to third. Those who stumbled were D Trickett (-1), C Michael (-1), G Sonntag (-3), I Gameau (-3), D Robinson (-3), D Addison (-4), B Michael (-5), R Hahn (-5), G Toms (-6) and very welcome new member Jake Bowden (-7). Things were quieter and more orderly in the distinguished C grade gathering, as laconic Lachlan Michael (+7) gently nudged Jordan Taylor (-3) into second and Austin Henstridge (-4), nervous as an near-edentate senior cit. about to tackle a ginger nut, to third. The elegant, nay gracious Chris Hahesy (-5) added the finishing touch and an extra dash of class to the proceedings, while hubby Mike slaved away down in the shed on our ailing equipment. Tate Michael achieved the day’s sole birdie at the eighth having secured Nearest The Pin to boot. Chris Hahesy’s NTP at the third survived the round unchallenged, while Bill Parkin coolly claimed his at the 17th. This Saturday we expect a strong showing for our highly-steamed Ham ‘N Turkey two-person Ambrose round, so get your partner organised, save up $20 each then slice and dice a sensational salad to enjoy with the meaty offerings we’ll be serving up after the stoush.

Tennis Balaklava night

Perfect conditions greeted the nighters as they started the countdown ‘til the Christmas break. The Division Two match between Lorraine Jenner’s Bananas and Fran Henderson’s Cherries was a thriller, with those bent yellow numbers scraping through by just a few games yet again, 3-27 to 3-24. The Bananas were once again assisted with the handy exDivision One player Courtney Barkla, who played a tiebreaker in every set against direct opponent Fran! Courtney eventually took the honours 2-1, but these girls had some great rallies. Top men Bananas’ David Northcott and opponent, sweetest Cherry Wally Treverton also had a great battle, playing two tiebreakers and a 5-3. Cherries’ Diane Gregor and opponent, Glenda Shepherd, also played two ties and a 5-3. Lorraine and opponent Cherie Cleary felt left out after only having two 5-3 scores and a bit of a woopsie 7-1 score! Overall, a great match. In the other Division Two match, Carly Gregor’s Oranges defeated the absent Kevyna Gardner’s Grapes 5-30 to 1-18. The top duo of Orange, Jarek Flight and opponent, Chris Brownlie, had 5-3s all the way through, as did newies Dee Bennett and Tanya Heslop. Sisters Carly and Sam Gregor also had 5-3s except for their set together, which they won comfortably. Opponents Sue Nicholson and Louise Read were seen ducking for cover as the Gregor girls showed their tennis prowess. Well done to Louise and Tanya who won the Grapes’ only set in another 5-3! Well done. The Division One match between Tania ‘I’m back’ Allen’s Pears and Pauline Hill’s Plums saw Plums winning 5-31 to 1-18. This score doesn’t indicate how close some of the sets were, with three 5-3s and a tiebreaker played, obviously all bar one going the Plums’ way. Well done to Tania and new nanna Helen Durdin on winning that set over Pauline Hill and Leonie Selleck. Pears’ Darren Scholz was outplayed by the cunning Ray Bennett. Scott McDonald, on a bye, filled in for Plum Don Veitch. Scott was pitted against Gary Wilson, these two having some excellent rallies, with every one of their sets being a 5-3 or 5-4. Scott and Pauline managed to win that tie over Gary and Helen in an excellent set. The remaning two matches saw thousands of fill-ins, with Andrew Lane’s Olives sporting only 50 per cent of the team! Tanya Greeny is still injured after falling off her mount, and Ben Roberts will make a welcome debut next week after being a tourist for the first part of the tennis season. Now that Ben is back, Andrew is unavailable this week, so they’ll meet for the last match before Christmas. Luke Williams and Melissa Moulds played for Tanya G and Ben R, and managed to get a three in their set together against Marie Heaslip and Darren Woodroofe, while Andrew and Julia had a good win against Chris Curnow and fill-in Riley McDonald. Limes’ Chris and Marie tried hard but lost a tiebreaker to Andrew and Melissa in a hard hitting set and Darren and Riley defeated Luke and the Julia. So it was down to the last two sets, which the Olives took in thrilling fashion, a 5-3 and a tiebreaker! Final score Olives 4-25 defeated Limes 2-25. The final Division One match saw Helen Barry’s Dates defeat the absent Louise Michael’s Figs 4-34 to 2-15. The Figs had Paul McBride and Joyful ‘I’m the new 40’ Ryan filling in. Together they got off to a rocky start, just managing to save their daks against hot Date Adam Pratt and the blonde Josie Thompson – who had told husband Paul to come home early from golf as she’d be waiting for him as she had a bye, but she was a week early! Dates’ Geoff Gardner had allowed a week to repair his sore heel so be could knock off Marty Brice, which he did in the first set. Marty regrouped and with partner Joy, gave Geoff and Josie a taste of their own medicine. In the only dak dropper of the night, Paul and Lisa had to reveal their bonds to Adam and Helen. Adam and Geoff were too strong for Paul and Marty who managed to save their jocks. Lisa and Joy pulled off an excellent tiebreaker win over Helen and Josie, to give the Figs their second set. Until next week when we see if…the jetlagged Ben R is on fire for his first match, Joyful has recovered from her birthday bash (happy birthday Joy!), matinee Marie is going to win her tiebreakers, and Josie turns up (bets are being taken)…

Balaklava reports The Balaklava senior side hosted Watervale with the weather fining up after a wet morning. The home side took all six mixed doubles with Shelley Lamond and Andrew Lane not dropping a game in their mixed. Tania Allen was welcomed back, and young Ben Michael, playing his second senior match, had to rally hard to win a close 6-4. The ladies singles saw Pauline Hill win 6-4 over stalwart Jenny Parish, while young Jane Harding met her match going down to Watervale’s Frankie Sandow. Shelley and Tania didn’t drop a game in their singles, both being quite ruthless. Helen Barry and Angela Battle had comfortable wins but not walkovers. The middle four men, Phil Barry, Scott McDonald, Vincent Taylor and Andrew didn’t drop a game, while top man Rick Lamond pulled out the top shots to defeat Spencer Budarick in a long 6-3, Ben defeating Jenny Faulkner 6-4. It was all over before the straight doubles, but some good tennis was still to be had, with the top two pairs of ladies having to work for their 6-3 wins, while Shelley and Tania won 6-1. The men had a clean sweep with Laney having mild palpitations as Ben double faulted. Luckily for Ben, he redeemed himself to win his final service game! Well done to the ruthless but highly skilled Andrew Lane who didn’t drop a game, and to Shelley who dropped only one! Final score Balaklava 23-140 defeated Watervale 1-39.

NEWS v District

Vote blocks Two Wells shop plan ‘Community not consulted enough,’ says Joe – but others claim the opposite • From Page 1 Two Wells businessman Tony Lange said this was a very disappointing decision. “We’ve gone one step forward and now five steps back,” he said. “This will probably set the whole development back another five years.” These decisions follow Cr Daniele’s survey of the town which found 388 people in favour of a shopping centre located 3km north of town. Several people have since asked to have their name removed from his list. At a public meeting in Two Wells last Wednesday, a majority of people spoke against Cr Daniele’s proposal. A separate petition was circulated in the past week, gaining 227 signatures for the development to occur in the town centre. Council’s decision is likely to delay any developments

at all, repeating DCM councillors’ tentative approach to development in the area, which was highlighted last year through the Middle Beach boat ramp proposal. Voting to delay developments were councillors Daniele, Anne Picard, Duncan Kennington, Tom Summerton and new councillors Jan Heley, of Two Wells ward and Karen McColl, of Lewiston ward. Councillors Yvonne Howard, Terry Keen, Marcus Strudwicke, Mark Wasley and Steve Jones voted against the motion. Cr Daniele said the community wasn’t consulted enough about the plans. But Cr Keen disagreed, saying this issue had received the most

New chief at GRDC John Harvey has been appointed managing director of the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC). In announcing the appointment, GRDC chairman, Keith Perrett, said Mr Harvey’s experience in agricultural science and strong leadership skills would further strengthen the GRDC’s push to drive innovation for a profitable and environmentally sustainable grains industry. Peter Reading will continue as GRDC managing director until Mr Harvey starts on March 1. GRDC is a statutory authority established to plan and invest in research and development for the Australian grains industry. “John’s selection was the result of an international recruitment process which attracted a strong field of candi-

community open space, councillors are worried about losing community land. Cr Picard supported the motion because she thought the right answers had not been reached. “I don’t think we should be selling off, or getting rid of in any way, reserved land,” she said. Cr Picard said towns in Britain had suffered because they lost their communal open land. “It wasn’t because of the big shops, it was because of the loss of community land.” She said the shops should be on the eastern side of the Two Wells area. “The western side should be used for recreational land or community facilities.” If council does not purchase this land, the State government maintains ownership. Cr Wasley said he would

We’ve had a lot of options put up and we chose what the best option was,” Cr Howard said. “All it is doing is delaying the process and that’s not going to help the businesses.” While the council-endorsed design plans show land is set aside for

WEATHER FORECAST

WARNINGS Information at www.bom.gov.au/weather or 1300 659 215 (Local call cost) STATE Weather conditions through to Thursday will be similar with a trough of low pressure and high surface moisture moving across the eastern border into South Australia. Isolated showers are forecast at times east of line Cummins to Marree increasing to scattered showers over eastern border districts due to higher surface moisture and a slightly more unstable atmosphere. Isolated thunderstorms are also expected to develop mostly on and east of the ranges, but may develop over eastern Eyre Peninsula and southern pastoral areas. Temperatures will be cool to mild in the south and warm in the north, becoming warm throughout by Thursday. Moderate to fresh

not support the motion “because the State government can’t always be trusted” to do the right thing when it comes to hanging on to land or selling land. “I would prefer the council had some sort of say in what happens to the land.” Cr Jones said it was time to move forward. “We need to move forward with this and take ownership of this decision,” he said. “It’s not helpful or constructive to go back on this decision. “I think it’s time we made a decision as a mature council and get on with it.” Design consultants JPE and Wax designs are scheduled to present new desired future character statements and design guidelines to council next Monday.
