Land sale prompts councillor to push for budget switch

Port Wakefield Community Management Committee (CMC) will receive $15,000 from the proceeds of the sale of the former Port Wakefield works depot, recently sold by Wakefield Regional Council. The figure is in stark contrast from the $50,000 previously committed to the CMC in the 2010/2011 budget. Under a motion moved by Central Ward

Les Pearson reports: councillor, David Lamond, the rest of the proceeds from the land sale will be held over to help fund the future relocation of the Balaklava works depot – a ongoing issue because of its proximity to housing in Wattle Ridge estate. “(I also suggest) the $15,000 allocated to

the CMC be to put towards a major project, some form of project where they can see the actual money came from the sale of the depot,” Cr Lamond said. His reasoning for the drop in funding was if council was selling a depot, the majority of money raised should be reinvested in another depot. Cr Lamond also envisaged money from

the sale of the depots in Balaklava, Owen and Blyth would go towards the new depot in Balaklava. Western Ward councillor, Darryl Pain, was perplexed with the funding decrease. “I don’t see why there has been such a massive reduction in the allocation of funds to the Port Wakefield CMC,” he said. n CONTINUED PAGE 4

Charmaine nabs her (police) man Sally Crowther reports: This is not just your average love story of falling in love and getting engaged – that would be a cop out. For two recently engaged local police officers it wasn’t quite love at first sight. Hamley Bridge, Brevet Sergeant Eddie Dilena, 38, and Port Wakefield Brevet Sergeant Charmaine Barlow, 30, did not get off to the normal fairy-tale beginning. They first met in October 2009 at Balaklava police station. It was Charmaine’s first day in the region and the local police officers, including Eddie, came to introduce themselves. “There was no connection at first. I didn’t actually like him much when we first met,” Charmaine admitted. But their interest in each other grew when they were rostered to work together over the Christmas period. When asked what their first date involved Eddie

plucked up the courage, Charmaine was called out to a nearby crash. When she returned home, the proposal came. “He made me wait all day,” Charmaine said. When it comes to wedding planning, both Charmaine and Eddie said they are in no rush. While they both have

decided on a small wedding, they are yet to agree on where they will tie the knot. Charmaine claims she would like a beach wedding, whereas Eddie would prefer to wed in a rainforest. “I guess that’s something we will need to talk about!” Eddie said. While the wedding may

not be in the near distant future, they plan on leaving their workboots behind and heading to Europe for their honeymoon. And because they both hold the same rank, there’s sure to be no pre or postwedding spats! n Love is in the air! More engagements, Page 14.

Central ward councillors claim community interest is limited

TWO Central ward councillors are sceptical of Balaklava’s need for a skate park and in turn, council’s support of the project. Councillors Owen Chapman and David Lamond both suggested there is limited interest from the community for a skate park during open forum at last week’s meeting. Cr Chapman also believed the costing for the Snowtown skate park needs to be investigated. He said he saw what he believed to be a skate park at the Mallala Football Oval teeming

Cr Lamond supported Cr Chapman’s statement. “There doesn’t seem to be any enthusiasm out there in the community for it.”

NEW FORD FOCUS LX

At the previous council meeting on April 27, councillors discussed options on how to spend the proceeds from the sale of the former Port Wakefield works depot. Cr Darryl Pain suggested the money could be divided up between the Port Wakefield Community Management Committee and other community projects, including the Snowtown Skate Park and Ralli Park court resurfacing. He did not submit a motion at last week’s meeting to formalise the request.

Planning starts on works depot move

PRELIMINARY assessment has begun on the relocation of the Wakefield Regional Council (WRC) Balaklava works depot together with the consolidation of the transfer station and dog kennels, which are adjacent to Wattle Ridge Estate. The news comes after Central Ward councillor, Owen Chapman, quizzed infrastructure services manager, David Hassett, on the status of the relocation at last Wednesday’s council meeting. Mr Hassett said the proposed

site, within the light industrial zone on Gwy Terrace, still was subject to land rezoning approvals and the provision of supporting infrastructure. He said council had budgeted $20,000 on consultants assessing what will be required for the relocation, which is currently in its early stages with nothing set in concrete. Preliminary investigations have also occurred into the site’s possible contamination issues in the event the depots are excess to requirements and are to be sold to assist in

the funding of the proposed facility. “A lot of it is all dependent on land availability and the land hasn’t been developed yet,” Mr Hassett said. “There is no reality to say in two years time, we’ll go and buy the land, we just don’t know however the long term financial plan caters for this proposal.” The relocation is expected to cost about $600,000, funded from proceeds of the sale of the former Port Wakefield works depot and the current Balaklava, Owen and Blyth depots.

CEO recovers from surgery Wakefield Regional Council Chief Executive Officer, Phil Barry, is recovering in hospital after brain surgery performed on Monday. Mr Barry was admitted to Royal Adelaide Hospital last week after tests detected a tumor. Yesterday (Tuesday) his recovery from the operation was proceeding. Before the operation, Mr Barry told Plains Producer editor, Terry Williams, he had been “overwhelmed” by

the support and true country spirit of many people. “He wanted to thank them for their support to both himself and his family, wife Helen and daughter Vanessa,” Terry said. “In typical fashion, Phil was more concerned about his community. “He wanted to ensure everyone knew council was in good hands, with good, supportive staff able to step up. “It was an incredible attitude.

“This was on Sunday evening – only hours before his operation – yet here we were discussing council matters like the Hamley Bridge housing development and Wakefield Waters, both of which Phil strongly supports. “I hope people appreciate just how much this man cares about his community – and by that I mean all people in all towns.” Mr Barry said he was in good care. He praised the doctors at Wakefield

Plains Medical Clinic “for recognising something serious.” He asked people to respect the privacy of his family during his recovery. Corporate Services Manager, Steve Jonas, has been appointed acting CEO. It is not known at this stage when Mr Barry will resume duties. Mayor James Maitland said: “Everyone at council – and I am sure our residents – wishes Phil a speedy recovery.”

Marine park inquiry ‘crucial’ By schnitty queen, Louise Michael THE tasty schnitzels on the menu at Balaklava’s Royal hotel have earned a State-wide accolade. The popular dish for many hotel diners has been ranked as one of our best. State MP for the southern electorate of Mawson, Leon Bignell, is taking over as rural SA’s schnitzel tester. As part of his recent tours with the Parliamentary grain harvest inquiry and other community meetings in his role as a Parliamentary Secretary, Mr Bignell has tried out a schnitzel at every rural town in SA he has visited. So when passing through Balaklava on his way to a meeting, Mr Bignell just had to try a schnitzel at the Royal Hotel. But which one? Chicken, beef or porterhouse? The porterhouse schnitzel looked good, so Mr Bignell tried it, without any toppings, and he was very happy with that decision. “It’s the best schnitzel I’ve had in the past six months of travelling through country SA, with honourable mentions to Mallala and Naracoorte’, said Mr Bignell. So what’s the secret to cooking the BEST schnitzel? The Royal Hotel’s chef extraordinaire, Derek Friedrichs, revealed some – but not all – of his secrets to serving up that perfect schnitzel! Lightly fry in hot oil, then finish off in the oven. Is that it? No! Try some tasty crumbs such as sage and onion to tempt those taste buds. And have your meat an even thickness to allow for even cooking. There may be more, but Derek, wouldn’t let on, as a good chef would never reveal all of his ‘sauces’. Derek did say chicken schnitzels are the most popular, along with toppings such as good old parmigiana, various gravies, barbecue, and reef and beef. So to all of you budding chefs out there, next time you cook a schnitzel, have your oil hot, experiment with your crumbs, or create a tasty topping, to make your own perfect ‘schnitty’.

THE State government’s proposed marine park legislation continues to come under fire, with a parliamentary select committee inquiry into the issue set to be launched within two weeks. Family First MLC, Dennis Hood, moved the motion in the Legislative Council on May 18, claiming the government was out of touch with public concerns. “The inquiry will fully investigate the credibility of science used by the government to justify marine parks being rolled out over some 46 per cent of the state’s waters,” he said. “I am very happy the 240,000 people who fish at least once a year in South Australia will now finally have the opportunity to have their voices genuinely heard.” The inquiry motion received support from other independent members and Liberal MPs in the Upper House. Time is now of the essence. “We are now at a crucial juncture in the proposed marine park roll-out. Local Advisory Groups have now made their submissions, and the government now is in the process of preparing draft management plans, The government has also caved after ongoing demands by Liberal MP and Member for Goyder, Steven Griffiths, for an economic, social and environmental impact statement. Labor released a $200,000 tender to assess the economic, social and environmental impact of banning fishing in certain areas last month. The inquiry will also address: • Detrimental effects on recreational and commercial fishing; • Detrimental effects on seaside property values; • Complaints by community groups regarding the Government’s consultation process; • Interstate and international moves to limit extent of no-fishing zones; and • The cost of implementing and maintaining marine parks. The government recently held more marine park community information sessions over the weekend with another to be held on Sunday at Port Noarlunga. An information stand will be at the Adelaide Boat Show from June 23–26.

Wrangle over council cash •From Page 1 “In the 2010/2011 budget, council budgeted to receive $85,000 for the land and was still happy for $50,000 to go to the CMC. “Now, we’re looking at $124,000 and the amount is only $15,000.” Cr Pain said the community had the money earmarked for a number of community projects. “I just wonder how council goes when they do make these budgets and allocate money to community things, then they actually receive more money for something than they thought they would ... why they would want to withdraw that figure,” he said. “If council was going to allocate this money to community projects, I think they need to go through with that.”

A letter from council chief executive officer, Phil Barry, dated September 2010 and provided by a resident to the Plains Producer– addressed to Jan Higgs, secretary of the Port Wakefield CMC at the time – states the community was in line to receive $50,000, with a proviso. The letter says: “As a financial guide, council’s budget for 2010/2011 has committed a minimum $50,000 to your committee but presuming any settlement proceeds will occur in the upcoming new term of council, then such an amount could be influenced by the new council negatively or positively,” Mr Barry wrote. Cr Pain said council should uphold its commitment to the CMC but also suggested the remaining money could be distributed to other

community projects in the district seeking funding. “I’m quite happy for the $50,000 to go to the CMC and the rest go into council for what ever they want to do,” he said. He then moved an amendment to Cr Lamond’s motion to give $50,000 to the CMC and have rest of the money go to council’s general revenue. Fellow Western Ward councillor, John Kipling, seconded the motion. Cr Kipling believed the Port Wakefield community deserved a bigger cut of the funding, given the land once belonged solely to the Port Wakefield council before the amalgamations. “Would I be right in assuming when the amalgamation took place many years ago, the council depot

land belonged to the Port Wakefield community?” he asked. “Basically, WRC inherited it through amalgamation. “So now, the council is now going to sell that and generously donate $15,000 to the Port Wakefield community after council received $140,000 for it? “That’s very good, isn’t it?” he added, with a strong sense of sarcasm. Southern Ward councillor, Rodney Reid, clarified the role of a budget in council operations. “It may have been budgeted for but a budget is a guide and something we aren’t ever held to,” he explained. “There are many things that may have changed since then.” Cr Lamond backed up Cr Reid’s thoughts.

“I’ve been here a fair while and sat through a fair few budgets and they are only a guide,” he said. He then pointed out Cr Pain also had an opportunity to submit his own motion on the issue. Cr Pain retorted: “I would like to commend Cr Lamond because I believe it was at December’s meeting he said to me, in his time on council of 18 years, he had never put a notice of motion in or a question on notice, so I would like to congratulate him on actually putting one in,” he said. After a small ruckus, Mayor James Maitland pulled the meeting into line and the motion was subsequently carried, while Cr Pain’s amendment was lost, only drawing support from himself and his Western Ward counterpart, Cr Kipling.

Concern over unusual stamp duty payment IN what is considered a strange twist, Wakefield Regional Council (WRC) is somehow facing stamp duty payment on the sale of its own land, on Catherine Street, Port Wakefield, sold back in December, 2007. Western Ward councillor, Darryl Pain, raised the issue at last Wednesday night’s council meeting. He said Revenue SA was seeking $14,690 stamp duty from liquidated firm Norich Development Pty Ltd. “If council sells a piece of land, do we pay the stamp duty on it?” he posed. In the absence of WRC chief executive officer, Phil Barry, who was ill, corporate services manager, Steve Jonas, confirmed at the time, council was requested to pay the stamp duty instead of the purchaser. “This is something I’ve never heard of,” Mr Jonas told the council meeting.

“We’re still arguing it and still investigating it.” Perplexed, Cr Pain asked if it was a common process. “It’s not normal, the same as when you sell a car, the purchaser would pay the stamp duty, so it is certainly an unusual occurrence,” Mr Jonas confirmed. When contacted by the Plains Producer this week, Mr Jonas clarified Revenue SA was using a section of an act to gain the stamp duty from either party involved in the sale of the land. He said Revenue SA was referring to section 4 (2) of the Stamp Duty Act. Mr Jonas said council would contest the legitimacy of such a process. “It could happen to anybody, whether they’re selling a house or whatever,” he said. “It really is quite unusual and we’re going to try to get to the bottom of it.”

Gary helps track house breakers A WAKEFIELD Regional Council officer unwittingly stumbled across a burglary occurring recently just outside Hamley Bridge. WRC general inspector, Gary Tezacker, was responding to a report of a lost dog seen about eight kilometres outside the town. He found the dog just outside Hamley Bridge and thought to drop in to a nearby home to see if the residents knew the dog’s owners. “I walked straight into a situation where the breakers were inside the house,” Mr Tezacker said.

Hamley Bridge police officer, Eddie Dilena, said Mr Tezacker followed the offenders to get the registration number of their vehicle. After following for a while, the offenders then tried to chase Mr Tezacker. He was able to get the vehicle’s registration number, which was later reported stolen to police. Officer Dilena said the offenders got away with bottles of alcohol and a few televisions. He added police were following up some leads on the suspects, who they believe are from the metropolitan area and not local residents.

Barbara Howell demonstrates the Singer treadle sewing machine

Stairway to success at Mallala museum It was all hands on deck last Thursday at Mallala museum as the long awaited new staircase was finally completed and the clean up began. The first floor had been inaccessible for many weeks and the dust had settled on everything. Many hands made light work and every item was dusted, wiped, polished, shined or vacuumed in readiness for a bus tour from Gawler the next day and also for the all important open day on Sunday. The open day was planned as part of history month’s “It’s About Time” activities taking place in many SA locations. The day showcased the collection and also demonstrated many items in action. Volunteers were able to show visitors such things as sheep shearing and treadle sewing machines. The organs were all put through their paces, with Jim East playing one. Three generations of one family entertained visitors on the 1865 piano, which had recently been tuned. Rosemary Jenkins played one organ, her daughter Allison Madigan also played, followed by Allison’s son, Curtis. Several screenings of old films and cartoons were held in the schoolroom which was transformed into a mini cinema for the day. District Council of Mallala mayor and museum chairman Marcus Strudwicke demonstrated the new camera which will be used to record museum activities and events as well as photograph the extensive document and photo collection. This will also be used by researchers and to update the Wiki website. It also provided the perfect opportunity to unveil the new staircase and visitors were able to go upstairs to the first floor gallery,where many newly donated items were put on display for the first time. The Museum is open every Sunday between 2pm and 4.30pm. Plains Producer, Wednesday June 1, 2011

Uniform idea

Quite often, I see in the many different schools’ newsletters, a note reminding parents and students about the wearing to school of the correct school uniform. There’s always someone who will rebel and push the system and wear something else – but why? Back in my (public) school days, last century, we didn’t have a primary school uniform, so every day I had to make sure my attire was not my ‘good go­ ing out’clothes, was suitable for lunchtime games like ‘Stuck in the mud’ or rolling in a tractor

tube, and was also practical for PE! When I got to highschool, the uniform was there and I was relieved And everyone wore it! We were dressed the same – no competition amongst the fashionistas, no unsafe outfits worn to make a statement and be noticed-just a practical uniform. And being in uniform makes it easy for other students and teaching staff to recognise who should be on school grounds or not, or who is wandering away on an excursion. So if your school has a uniform, for your own sake, please try to wear it! Owen This Friday is ‘Jump Rope for Heart’ day, and the Owen students are practising skipping skills for the big day!

NEWS v District

Melissa’s praise of ‘pioneers’ Could you be a pioneer? Former Avon teenager Melissa Cutting has been a participant in a “young pioneers” program which encourages training and development. Applications for The Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) Young Social Pioneers (YSP) program are now open, and FYA is calling on all young social change makers to apply to gain a place in the unique yearlong program. Melissa finishes in August and said it has had a big impact on her life and how she approaches projects. She encouraged anyone interested to apply. “It’s for people 18 to 30 who really want to make a difference in the community,” she said. “It’s a really great way to network, get ideas and even if you’ve been working on particular issues, the program still enables to continue doing that.” Now in its third year, and modelled on the International Youth Foundation’s global YouthActionNet initiative, the YSP program

invests in inspired young Australians to develop their leadership skills and support their vision for social change. The program brings together 14 young change makers every year, creating a dynamic community of like-minded individuals who develop their skills while learning from and inspiring each other. Throughout the program, the 2011 Young Social Pioneers will benefit from leadership skills development, professional mentoring, intensive group and individual training, and access to a global network of social innovators. A new group of aspiring young leaders, who are up to something great in their communities, will earn their place in this year’s program and join a group of 28 existing Pioneers dedicated to initiating urgent social change in areas such as cultural and sexual diversity, social inclusion, health, creative arts and international poverty. Melissa said the program left her with some amazing experiences.

“One of the most valuable things have been the people I’ve met from Australia and around the world. It’s been amazing.” One of those people was corporate psychologist and author Jeff Hanes, one of world’s most influential people who advises world leaders on community development. “To be able to spend time with him and talk with him about our work was just truly amazing,” Melissa said. Coming to the end of the program, Melissa believed she is more confident and has a stronger direction than when she first started. “I think it was reinforcing what I believe was important and shows me so many ways to achieve our goals, what ever we were trying to achieve, there was no stopping us,” she said. “There are people out there who will support you no matter what.” Anyone interested in applying can do so on the FYA website or facebook page. “I think its a great opportunity to get out there and bring some great skills back to rural South Australia,” Melissa said.

Former CEO faces charges FORMER Light Regional Council chief executive officer, Peter Beare, was put on trial in the District Court last week accused of using privileged information he gained while CEO of the council to secure land deals for financial gain between 2003 and 2007. Prosecutor, Amelia Cairney, said Beare knew about the development plans for Kapunda before the information was made available to the public. It is alleged Aqua Reef Pty Ltd, a company Beare has shares in and is also a director with, bought three sections of land at Kapunda he knew were about to be rezoned, increasing in value as a result. Beare was also accused of allegedly cheating Kapunda ratepayer, Judith Clothier, by deliberately withholding information and purchasing her property below market price. Ms Clothier attempted to sell her heritage-zoned land to council but was knocked back. Council commissioned another study with a view to re-zoning her land for residential use, which Beare was supposed to tell her about. Instead, he allegedly contacted her with an offer for a fast sale of the land for a price well below its market value. He pleaded not guilty to two counts of abuse of public office. The trial is continuing.

Find some faith, hope and charity Horizon Christian School senior drama students are set to put on a show tomnorrow with their production of The Old Faith, Hope and Charity in the Balaklava Town Hall. There will be a matinee performance at 12.30pm tomorrow, followed by an evening performance

at 7pm. The final performance will be held 7pm Friday. The two-act comedy tells the story of an old doctor, the heartbeat of a small country town, running his surgery known to everyone as the Old Faith, Hope and Charity. However, this quiet little

country practice is taken into a whirlwind of drama as the Harvest Festival is coming up and a new doctor comes to town. Kooky and quirky characters are met along the way as the story is told. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults, book at Horizon on 8862 2100.

Still no Wasleys ‘progress’ With the post office barely running and the general store closed, the town of Wasleys has lost its spark. Long term residents and volunteers, Tom and Glenys Laintoll, are fighting to keep Wasleys alive. Last month local state MP for Light, Tony Piccolo, held a meeting with residents to help kick start the community. Tom and Glenys Laintoll are determined to form a progress association, a committee which will include members of the community to help revive the town. “Our main objective is to stimulate young people to step up and take ownership of the town, not only for their own benefit, but for the benefit of the community.” “We need to bring small groups together and form a close-knit committee for the benefit of the town,” Tom said. Tom has also approached Light

Regional Council to organise a community meeting in the hope of a committee being formed, but so far nothing has occurred. Despite the large amount of effort going in to try to get people involved, Glenys is sad to admit not many people appear interested. “We haven’t had any interest shown from residents. We are trying out best to get it going, with promotional posters and flyers, but it hasn’t worked,” Glenys said. The post office has not yet started operating to its full extent. Mail can be posted and collected, but the ability to pay bills or even buy stamps is nonexistent. “The post office is simply a mail exchange, nothing more,” Tom said. Mr Piccolo said the most important issue was to keep the post office open. With expressions of interest closing last week, (Thursday May 26) to take over the licence, Mr

Piccolo said there had been plenty of interest. He was also keen to help Tom and Glenys get the committee thriving. “The plan is to work with the community council and government to get Wasleys back on track,” Mr Piccolo said. He has also been working on other ways to rejuvenate the town, including removing barriers to development. The possibility of a housing development has also arisen, with Mr Piccolo approaching land-owning residents. He believes a housing development to be a great way to bring more people into the town. “With more people, the town can survive and thrive,” Mr Piccolo said. At this stage Mr Piccolo along with the Laintolls continue to work towards the community meeting. Ratepayers and residents will be asked to form a committee.

Three country watercourses damaged by summer floods will be given the chance to flow better than ever. Northern and Yorke Natural Resources Management Board will exceed its original funding allocation to restore the Gilbert River at Riverton, Little Blackfella Creek north-east of Peterborough, and a historic stone culvert on the Rocky River north of Wirrabara. Clare and Gilbert Valleys Council has been given $71,000, Peterborough District Council $25,000 and Mount Remarkable District $4000. This makes a total of $20,000 more than the $80,000 NYNRM originally allocated after the December flash floods. NYNRM board presiding member, Caroline Schaefer, said regional councils faced multimillion dollar bills. “This funding will support their flood remediation efforts by targeting affected waterways,” Ms Schaefer said. Clare and Gilbert Valleys Council CEO, Roy Blight, welcomed the funding. “The Riverton, Tarlee, Rhynie and Stockport river system was severely impacted,” Mr Blight said. “This gives us the opportunity for a remedial and restoration program in Rhynie Creek at Riverton. “We intend to get going fairly quickly on removal of overgrown introduced vegetation.” As the main location, including the Duck Pond, is close to Riverton High School, the council hopes to involve students as well as the community.

NEWS FEATURE v District what do you know about the role of your local police officer?

true B L UE

Police officers work tirelessly in country areas, yet the community has very little understanding of their multifaceted role. Yes, there’s the ever present RBT’s and speeding tickets – but just what does a “country copper” do? Our local police are spread across five towns, Hamley Bridge, Balaklava, Port Wakefield, Brinkworth and Snowtown. A

big area with big responsibilities. So how do they cope? There’s no clear answer, yet they do. Plains Producer reporter Sally Crowther, who is married to Port Wakefield Senior Constable Scott Crowther, goes behind the scenes to help the local community understand just what the job of a country police officer entails.

They can be friend or foe – but the Force is with us day and night

S

O you think your local police officer is there to serve only the area they work within? Think again. In the realities of modern policing, this just doesn’t happen. It’s a fallacy. The typical day varies in length and work load, depending on the calls or tasks received. Experienced Hamley Bridge police officer, Brevet Sergeant Eddie Dilena, 38, says: “Gone are the days you are just a local police officer,” he said. Eddie has been a police officer for 17 years, serving areas including Murray Bridge, Maitland, metropolitan areas, and more recently based at Hamley Bridge for four and a half years. With his experience he knows country policing can be tough. Country police officers work and serve in the community in what is called ‘clusters’. The idea of working in a cluster is to cover all areas in a certain region. This means police officers cover not only their own town, but they may also be called out to another town, depending on whether that police officer is at another call out or on days off. An example may be when the Snowtown police are off duty, an officer from Port Wakefield may spend half their shift there to cover the town. This method also extends to a late night call-out. This provides the best service to the broader area, allocating resources to an area where it is most needed. Port Wakefield officer, Senior Constable Scott Crowther, 27, has worked as a police

officer for eight years. Working in the metropolitan areas, along with the South East, Scott has now been based in Port Wakefield for 12 months. He feels the community doesn’t seem to understand how they can’t always be in the town to which they are assigned. “On any given day you could be called out as far as Eudunda or Wallaroo to assist with a job,” he said. The metropolitan and country methods of policing are diverse in many ways, impacting on how a police officer may work differently from the city to the country.

You feel a sense of ownership towards keeping the town safe

Port Wakefield Brevet Sergeant, Charmaine Barlow, 30, previously worked in the metropolitan area for five years, moved to Balaklava for 12 months, and now is based at Port Wakefield. “Working in the country you become more self-reliant in comparison to working in the city,”she said. But it is hard to adjust to a country community in which they are expected to both work and live, making it difficult to lead a normal life. Eddie admits local police are judged at all times even when off duty, describing this as “living in a fish bowl”. It can be difficult when they are interacting with the community on a social level. “It’s hard to socialise like a normal person,

as you always seem to be looked at as the copper,” Eddie said. Charmaine admits you may never feel part of the community unless you have lived there a considerable amount of time. She has thrown herself into a variety of social sports to help. “It helps me feel normal and fit in the best I can,” she said. Police officers also deal with their unpredictable work days. Their day generally starts at 8.30am, or with the first phone call, often before this time. Police also have a number of tasks to undertake, including paperwork, court dates, trials, issuing of summons, warrant arrests, RBTs, station duties, random firearm audits and community engagements. Also, more particularly at Port Wakefield, there is a heavy focus on road safety and the ‘Fatal 5’, which include: speed, seat belts, drink-driving, in attention and vulnerable road users. However, the day does not finish when their shift ends. Late night call outs can be quite common, meaning little sleep before another day starts. The result is fatigue, which many officers based in country towns experience. Fatigue is managed by the members themselves and also by management – senior officers who must ensure the health and safety of their officers. While one police officer may have been out all night, another will cover his town while he gets some rest.

“I try to self manage the best I can,” Charmaine said. Eddie claims it is challenging working a full day serving the community then being on call, sometimes 24 hours a day “Sometimes you just can’t switch off,” he said. Tragedy is something any police officer cannot avoid, but for a local officer it is even more difficult. With a tight-knit community, having locals killed in unfortunate circumstances is devastating. Charmaine admits when she gets a call out to a nearby crash, she immediately hopes it is not a local. If it is, there is the aftermath to deal with as friends and family become involved. “After an event like this, it’s hard to go home at the end of the night and forget about the day, you can deal with it for months on end,” Eddie confesses. Being ‘on the job’ is not easy at times, but it can also have an affect on their partners and family. That’s when dealing with the phone ringing at all times of the night and offering a shoulder to lean on becomes vital. On working in a country town, Charmaine said,“You feel a sense of ownership towards keeping the town safe. It’s different to the city but I enjoy all the benefits it brings.” “Working in country areas you learn more skills and investigate a crime from start to finish, whereas in the city you could only complete part of it.”

‘Don’t raise the driving age to 18’ A recent proposal to lift the driving age to 18 has caused many young people, particularly those living in rural areas, to voice their concerns. Road Safety Minister, Tom Kenyon, recently floated a proposal to lift the driving age as part of a 10 year strategy to cut car accident casualty and death tolls by at least 30 per cent. It came after the government released a 36-page discussion paper, drafted by the Road Safety Advisory Council, which outlines plans to cut the road toll to under 80 by 2010. Year 10 students from Balaklava High School were concerned about the proposal and how it will affect them as country students. “I can see why they are thinking about lifting the driving age, due to young hoon drivers, but it isn’t fair for the young drivers who drive safely,” Amanda Charleson, 15, said.

Sally Crowther reports: Lifting the driving age would seemingly have more impact on country kids, opposed to those living in the city where there are more options of public transport. Hannah Hoepner, 15, lives on a farm, and admits the lack of public transport will cause problems. “If they are going to lift the driving age, they will need to consider more public transport in country areas,” Hannah said. The students were concerned this could make it harder to obtain a decent job. “It will affect me getting a job for sure. Without a licence it will be difficult to get a source of income,” Cody Robertson, 15, said. Another major issue raised by all four students was the issue of commuting to university in a couple of years. “I’ll be 17 when I leave school, so if the driving age is lifted, I won’t have my licence

KESAB recycling grants Local communities need to move fast to lodge applications to receive up to $10,000 funding to implement local beverage container recycling projects. KESAB has extended the closing date for applications to Monday, June 6, with successful applicants confirmed in July. The grants, funded by the Coca-Cola Foundation, are open to all communities across Australia and range from $3,000 to $10,000 for projects resulting in a measurable increase in beverage container recycling in local communities.

Many South Australians might think this happens here anyway – but the grants can still be put to good use. The local “Adopt-ATown” committee was a recipient of $3,000 last year, used to help promote its project with printing of flyers and posters, purchasing and embroidering of caps for school students, advertising and the cost of mail drop in every town encouraging people to donate their money to Callignee. Adopt-A-Town founder, Owen’s Joy Woodroofe, said the recycling scheme raised around $3,500, with $3,000 going to the

by the time I go to uni,” Riley Lane, 14, said. The students said if they were living at home when they started their university course, it would be almost impossible to commute without a licence. All suggested the concept of a better and longer period of driver education was more appealing and beneficial than lifting the driving age. Young Affairs Council of South Australia executive director, Anne Bainbridge, was against the proposal for lifting the driving age. “Raising the legal age for driving would create significant barriers to employment, education, training and social activities, and it will particularly impact regional and rural communities,” Ms Bainbridge said. Ms Bainbridge said better training for learner drivers should be targeted to fix the problem. • To view the draft strategy got to www. dtei.sa.gov.au/roadsafety or by calling 1300 557 316.

Mental custody for Snowtown rampage THE man behind a violence-crazed rampage at Snowtown in April 2008 has been ordered to spend 21 years in mental health care. Demal Behari, 44, appeared in the Supreme court last week after he was previously found mentally unfit to stand trial on charges, including three counts of attempted murder. The attacks started on the road into the mid north town, when he used his 4WD to ram a car with two women inside. He then attacked both victims with a knife. Once in town, he drove into a truck driver and then another man. Finally, he also tried to drive his vehicle into two other men. Behari suffers from schizophrenia. Justice Chris Kourakis ruled the offender’s mental health was likely to remain adversely affected by his illness. “There is no real prospect of improvement in the level of your cognitive function,” Justice Kourakis said. All of Behari’s victims continue to suffer physical and psychological issues.

that left a broken line through which the ink was forced by a pressure roller onto plain white paper. This invention meant the making of copies of documents was much faster. Eventually moving to London, he established the Gestetner Cyclograph Company in 1881, producing stencils, styli, ink rollers etc., guarding his inventions through patents. In 1906 he opened the Gestetner works in Tottenham Hale, North London and, over the next 70 years, employed several thousand people. David Gestetner’s invention became an overnight international success, and he soon established a chain of branches worldwide. The invention of typewriters saw

Hungary in 1854. At a young age, he worked at the stock market in Vienna, and one of his tasks was to make copies of the stock market activity at the end of the day by copying the results over and over for each copy. He decided there had to be a better way, his experiments leading him to invent the first method of reproducing documents using a stencil. The stencil was a thin sheet of paper with a wax coating on which you could write with a special stylus (pen)

David Gestetner died in 1939, but the Gestetner name continued under the management of his son and grandsons, acquiring several other companies as the Gestetner empire grew, until it was taken over by the Japanese company Ricoh in 1996.

We all know what a photocopier is, many of us use or have used them for a variety of printing tasks. They’re a relatively new addition to the world of printing and we wonder what we’d do without them, but it’s not so long ago that they were unheard of. So, what did we use before photocopiers? Anyone who worked in an office would have been familiar with the duplicator, the machine that churned out copies as long as you kept turning the handle and, when things went wrong or the stencil slipped, left the operator with very black, inky fingers! There were several different makes but the best known brand of ink duplicator was the Gestetner. David Gestetner was born in

End of an era as navy retires HMAS Manoora From Glenys Quick, Manoora

A commemorative plaque was presented to the township of Manoora on ANZAC day by Commander Scott Houlihan of the RoyalAustralian Navy. It was a prelude to the decommissioning in Sydney last Friday, May 27, of “the Mighty Manoora” and the end of an era for the name TSMV/HMAS Manoora, after nearly 66 years. The Federal government announcement in February plans to decommission the navy’s amphibious transport ship HMAS Manoora LPA 52 from its fleet, a year a head of schedule. Currently on operational pause at the Navy’s Garden Island dock yards in Sydney, Manoora II stopped its service in September last year. It was considered uneconomical to repair the ship as it was already tagged to be decommissioned at the end of 2012. HMAS Manoora gave 17 years of distinguished service, included deployments to the Solomon Islands, East Timor, and the Middle East. The ship was home to more than 3500 crew members during her navy career With the eventual retirement of other RAN amphibious support ships (HMAS Kanimbla and HMAS Tobruk), the Navy will introduce the larger Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) Ships in 2014 -15. The tiny town of Manoora has long association with this unique ship and its crew members and this year’s ANZAC ceremony was particularly moving. The Manoora Institute Committee responded on behalf of residents and accepted the honour with great pride and gratitude. Over many years primary school students were invited to visit the ship

MANOORA’S John and Bev DeVries had the privilege of a guided tour of HMAS Manoora in Sydney. Manoora primary school students (rear) David Willmott and Karen Palmer, Jesse Nichols and Sam Nicholls with HMAS Manoora’s decommissioning plaque. The students would like to see an other vessel carry the town’s name in the future. when it was docked at Whyalla in 1969 and Port Adelaide in 2005. Contact has continued with both past and present crew members since the first reunion in 1991. Former sailors and their wives from the HMAS Manoora Association in Melbourne travelled from all over Australia to attend a dinner at Manoora Hall. A cairn and plaque was later installed in memory of crew members who gave their lives in the theatres of war in 1935-1945 Acomprehensive book, Manoora at Sea was com-

piled by local resident, the late Kay Prizibilla covering the ship’s deployments and activities from 1935 -1961 Graham Robinson from the HMAS Manoora Association and crew member from the original vessel said: “Time has made an awful hole in our numbers, we are now down to only 60 members, and we refuse to give in even though most of us are now close to 90 years of age.” The association has now decided to launch a website to help keep in

contact with their remaining members and families. The first Manoora came about when a proposal was made in 1933 from the director of the Adelaide Steamship Company, Sir Walter Duncan. At the time he was connected to the large Manoora sheep station, and named one of the company’s new ships after the town. Manoora is the second RAN ship to carry the name. The first was the former coastal passenger ship requisitioned during

World War II. Originally designed to be adaptable for combat, she served with distinction as an Armed Merchant Cruiser from 1939-42 and was Australia’s first Infantry Landing Ship (ALSL) from 1943-45 to join with the 7th Amphibious Force. With a highly trained crew, she received six battle honours for her wartime service, she was then returned to the Adelaide Steamship Company in 1947 and refitted to continue as a passenger liner The ship was eventually sold to the Indonesian government in 1961 and renamed Ambulombo and Affan Ocean in 1965. She sank while being transported to Taiwan in 1972 The USS Fairfax County was purchased and modified as a training and helicopter support ship from the United States navy. It was commissioned for service into the Royal Australian Navy on November 25, 1994 as HMAS Manoora II. Clare and Gilbert Valleys Council supports the HMAS Manoora Association to retain the Manoora name within the fleet.

Mallala sorts waste service DISTRICT Council of Mallala is looking to clear up any grey areas in its waste collection and recycling service by releasing its draft policy for public consultation. DCM chief executive officer, Charles Mansueto, said council needed to remind residents of its current services and associated costs. “For some time, the level of service has varied and therefore increases the complexity and cost of the outcome,” he said. “The draft policy is intended to reflect current practice but also identifying a fair and sustainable service level.” While a majority of the draft policy highlights council’s current practice, the main change will be a limit of one general waste bin provided per rateable property. “This occurs currently in the majority of cases but some exceptions exist,” Mr Mansueto said. “Any additional bins will be charged accordingly. This encourages people to reduce general waste and promotes recycling.” Those with a bonus bin have about a six-month grace period. Any additional bins currently collected will cease to be picked up from January 31, 2012, if the new policy is adopted,” Mr Mansueto said. “Recycling and green organics will continue but also be charged for any additional service beyond on bin per rateable property. “No other change is proposed to existing service delivery.”

Did the earth move? Army responds after ‘quake’ hits Balaklava

BALAKLAVA was occupied by the Australian Army on Thursday last week – but don’t panic, our soldiers were not responding to an “invasion.” The army’s presence was all in aid of a training exercise which centred on defence support to the civil community. Second in Command of the Nine Reserve Response Force, Captain Duncan Hains, said the formal training exercise was a new initiative by the Australian Defence Force. “We conduct these exercises because history shows in the wake of bad natural disasters in Australia, the military can play a key function and it’s a capability we need to train so we are in a position to support other civilian agencies as best as we can,” he said. “The Defence Force has always played a key role in aiding the civil community, as far back as Cyclone Tracy but it’s only really recently it’s been formalised into a capability we can call upon.” He said the 126 Defence Force personnel were simulating a response to a mock 7.1 magnitude earthquake 80 kilometres north of Clare. Clare received widespread destruction, while Balaklava had some damage but on a smaller scale. “We’ve come in to assist in Balaklava and we will be conducting damage assessments,” Capt Hains said. The unit set up its command post at Ralli Park with teams on the ground divided in to sub units assigned to control their specific areas. Sub units were then further divided up to conduct the damage assessments. “The damage assessment is a form or template created by the government of South Aus which allows us to go to individual properties and conduct damage assessments on them, so we can assist the civilian agencies in ascertaining how much damage is in a town,” Capt Hains said. “We attempt to get to every single property and do a damage assessment on it, then collate that information and pass it back to the SES.” The unit also conducted a search and recover exercise on foot at Rocks Reserve on Friday and in the Wakefield river area around Port Wakefield on Saturday.

been around for years. In simple terms the cement tile is made from a cement mould and then painted, a terra cotta roof is made from clay with the natural colours being evident In some cases terra cotta tiles are glazed much like a vase or garden pot. The technological improvements in manufacture have improved the performance in all types of tiles over the years, so when changing a tiled roof you can be comfortable in knowing it will probably not need to be done again. “In our experience we have found tiled roofs more than 70 years old need replacing,” says Roof Seal on its website. “Roofs younger than this may also need replacing depending on a variety of factors.

“The environment, for one, has an influence on the longevity of the roof. In areas close to the sea, for example, there is evidence of perishing, from the under side of older terra cotta tiles. “In some cement tiles the tile may look fine from the outside, however the covered water course may have weathered away.” • Contact Roof Seal Rural Kapunda on 8566 2922 or 1300 36 70 70 for an on-site inspection to advise on what’s right for your roof and guttering.

Costs to rise on services regard to real estate sales evidence and activity as at January 1, 2011 and reflect the market conditions at that time,” Mr O’Loughlin said. “Value changes indicate the residential market experienced modest growth over the 12 months to January. The metropolitan median house prices increased by six percent from $385,000 to $408,000 in that same period. “While rural property values have generally remained steady or increased on the back of a good season, challenges remain in the viticultural industry and values in that sector have been adjusted accordingly.”

SOUTH Australians can expect to pay more for services after the State Valuation Office released its property revaluations for the 2011-12 financial year. South Australia’s Deputy ValuerGeneral, Steve O’Loughlin said more than 870,000 properties across the state had been revalued. New figures come into effect at midnight on June 30. The new values show SA’s total site value is now $205 billion, an increase of five percent from the previous financial year, while the State’s total capital value has risen by six percent to $350 billion. “Values have been determined with

Property owners will receive notification of their site or capital value on rating and taxing notices. “The impact of the new valuations on property charges will vary and depend on decisions made by rating authorities.” Mr O’Loughlin said. Property owners with concerns regarding their valuation can submit a formal written objection within 60 days of receipt of the first rate notice from each authority. For further information, contact the State Valuation Office general enquiry line on 1300 653 345 or visit www. landservices.sa.gov.au.

Restoration and maintenance on your roof can keep it looking great. Eventually, however, the roof will need replacing. Roof Seal offers a full range of roof replacement materials in iron, cement tile and terra cotta tiles. And when it’s complete, your home will be more valuable! Whenever a home is designed, the frame work is engineered to carry a certain load. It usually is not possible to replace an iron, corrugated roof with a tiled roof without major structural alterations. You can, however, replace a tiled roof with an iron roof if you wish – but always be aware of the load the structure is supporting and replace with a like or lighter material.

Don’t get too warm with blanket! With winter here, South Australia’s fire services are warning against using damaged or old electric blankets which could be a fire hazard. CFS and metropolitan fire services have already responded to house fires linked to electric blankets since colder weather began last month. Sadly, in one of the incidents, an elderly Adelaide woman died after a fire started in the vicinity of an electric blanket controller. MFS District Officer of Community Safety, Shaun Ruxton, said most electric blanket fires are caused by blankets that are worn, have not been checked regularly or have not been operated as specified by the manufacturer. Safety tips for electric blanket use:

• Always test your electric blankets at the start of winter when you take them out of storage

• To test the blanket, spread it flat, cover with an ordinary blanket and switch on high for 10 to 15 minutes. Run your hand over the blanket to check for hot spots which indicate that the elements may be damaged • If you find any signs of damage, discard the blanket • If an electric blanket is more than five years old, have it checked by the manufacturer • Always read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions • Always use an electric blanket as an under blanket only, to prevent creasing • Never use an electric blanket with a water bed

• Never tuck an electric blanket under the mattress, fold it over double, crease it or extend it under the pillows - this can cause overheating and scorching • Never leave clothes piled up on an electric blanket if it is switched on – this can cause overheating and scorching • Never leave an electric blanket running when you’re not home. Electric blankets have started fires when left unattended, or left on during the day • Turn your electric blanket off before getting into bed to ensure your safety. The fire services urge householders to combine the above safety tips with reliable, working smoke alarms that are less than 10 years old and a home fire escape plan.

Australians are the second highest waste producers in the world, second only to Americans. We throw away 3.3 million tonnes of food every year – up to a quarter of the country’s food supplies. The Centre for Organic & Resource Enterprises (CORE) says emissions from landfills are part of the Federal government’s carbon abatement initiative. If everyone composted, the total waste going to landfill could decrease by up

to one third and emissions and disposal costs would drop. By turning food scraps and organic garden waste into compost you can improve soil quality and garden vitality by releasing the rich nutrients in the compost into your soil; recycle valuable nutrients and reduce the use of artificial fertilisers and prevent greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the amount of organic waste going to landfill.

You will be paying more for water The average South Australian water bill will increase by about $3.64 per week from July 1 under new water prices announced by the State government. Power bills are also expected to increase from July after ETSA Utilities won an appeal to the Australian Competition Tribunal. This means the average residential power bill could face a 10 per cent jump as ETSA moves to recover costs of managing the electricity network over the next five years. Water prices will increase on average by 26.3 per cent which includes an increase to the fixed household quarterly supply charge of $23.05 per quarter. Concessions will also be increased with the Government providing $22 million over the next four years to concession holders to soften the impact of the new water prices. Minster for Water, Paul Caica, said the State government is investing heavily in projects to diversify the State’s water supply and the price rise will go towards paying for this critical water security plan. South Australian 2011-12 water prices will increase by 26.3 per cent (including inflation) on average starting on July 1. Sewerage charges will increase on average by 5.5 per cent for metropolitan customers and 6 per cent for country customers. The average metropolitan household used about 190 kilolitres(190,000 litres)of water in 2009-10. Based on this, householders would pay $164.68 per quarter in 2011-12 for water supply – an increase of about $47 per quarter compared with an increase of $21 in 2010-11.

By Lynne Pycroft EVEN with the addition of a couple of experienced veteran Eagles players, the match was always looking as a win for Virginia, as from the first bounce the Rams were running circles around the Eagles. Virginia had loose players in their key positions, and at times the Eagles weren’t even contesting for the ball. Some umpiring decisions had everyone bewildered. The Eagles weren’t going down without a fight, as Virginia’s Anthony Mason found out, being on the receiving end of a tackle from Eagle workhorse, Chris Braham. The Eagles struggled at times, but they did score a couple of goals through Brendan Wallis and Moo Smith. This seemed to fire them up, but Virginia answered back, the final

result being another loss for the Eagles. Chris Braham, Charles Mellier and Scott Allen all played well for the Eagles. Alex Leo and Justin Platt were the picks for the Rams.

junior colts

The game began with Brandon Taylor scoring a goal in the first minute, which set the scene for the first quarter – the young Eagles side out-scoring Virginia four goals to nothing. In the second term, the Eagles made a few changes. Virginia made the most of this and played a lot better football, unfortunately without any rewards, with the scores 6-1 to 0 at half time. The third quarter was much the same as the first, with Taylor dominating all over the ground, kicking three goals and enforcing the mercy rule by three quarter time. Scores were 10-4 to 1-1 at the break.

Donnybrook too good for Balaklava’s defence Under 17

Play started with both teams eager to gain control. Donnybrook scored first early in the game off a short corner. Balaklava then won a short corner but failed to convert. Another short corner for Donnybrook, but strong defence by Balaklava’s Jesse Shepherd, Ethan Gates and Joe Goldney prevented another goal. Balaklava then scored off Hedley Greenshields with good support from his team mates.

Some great passes through the centre by Jordan Hamann, Tamara Gates, Marni Greenshields, Georgina Watts and Hedley Greenshields, attempting to set up a shot at goal, but Donnybrook’s defence was just too good and they were unable to score. Balaklava goalie Brock Hamann prevented a goal being scored from a penalty flick that was awarded to Donnybrook. A great save! Donnybrook went on the attack and scored two consecutive goals after a lot of play through the

middle. Timothy Heslop, Riley Chapman and Micah Hamann were fantastic in defence, preventing a number of goals being scored. They only let two slip past! Final score Balaklava 1 – Donnybrook 3. Next week’s games are at Clare High School. It’s uncertain whether the under 14’s will play, as Burra have struggled to get a team each week.

KIDS really got into the donut eating contest! families of the Mallala Football Club colts and junior netballers got together at the clubrooms for a family games night on Saturday. Over 200 people gathered for a social night of fun and sport. The evening started with a free BBQ tea which provided parents with a welcomed cooking and dishes-free night. Meanwhile, the kids kicked the footy around on the oval but also had the chance to try out some old fashioned games such as egg and spoon races, sack races, totem tennis, three legged races and donut eating competitions. Inside there was pool, table ten-

Plains Producer, Wednesday June 1, 2011


SPORT v Football

A matter of honour APFL association team decided tonight THE Adelaide Plains Football League association squad trains tonight, from which, the team to represent the league will be picked. I love my rep footy and a win for the APFL to make it back to back Landmark Cups would be brilliant. The beauty of rep footy is the camaraderie you develop with other guns in the league the memories are priceless. Watching players like indigenous star Troy Wittwer and Corrie Eichner tearing up Crystal Brook oval in times gone by still tingles in the memory bank. Brings me back to the days of power forward Paul Kotsano and evergreen midfielder Neville Seccafien when the league was at its strongest. Every time you pull on that APFL guernsey, you are representing not just the league, but everyone else who has worn it before you. Rep footy is a privilege and only those who see it as an honour should be picked. Former Balaklava champ and coach Andy Michael is coaching the team. He would remember those

THE BANDWAGON With Rick Shaw

aforementioned blokes and how they went about it. Now it will be a case of picking a team he thinks will represent the league the way he and those before him did back in those glory days. I digress, back to 2011. On A Positive Note: I heard on the grapevine a number of Balaklava boys donned the black and gold in the senior colts a few weeks back. United lost by under 10 goals but it was apparently good to see a better game. Gone are the days it seems where “I’ve paid my son’s subs at Balaklava, I don’t want him wearing other club’s guernseys” was once a problem. It’s great to see the teams evened up properly and well done to the coaches. While the HummocksWatchman relics continue to crumble on the footy field, the Hummocks netty girls are

dominating on the court. At the present time, they’re looking pretty unstoppable, which makes you wonder whether it will be a repeat of the early 1990s, just before Sam Nicholls left us for the big smoke. Seriously, these girls have amazing cohesion and court speed. Beating them will be harder than trying to find an extra Eagles reserves footy player under 40. The weekend’s match against Virginia rounded out the four home games to be played on the five-cent piece that is Port Wakefield oval. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say it will be nice to get out to Lochiel and enjoy a

real country sporting venue. It’s great out there, hopping into a hotdog served up by the ‘mayor’ of Lochiel, John Nicholls. Mallala versus a rejuvenated United is without doubt the big question mark on whether the Tigers are the real deal this year. Have the Long Plains hierarchy axed their Darwin recruit? I wonder if he will be seeking severance pay. Sammy McArdle is also a big name missing from the Tiger line-up. I mentioned on my facebook page last week he will be out for a while, so if you want a weekly APFL tip, hit me up.

negating the resting rovers also got accolades from the coaching staff. One of the field leaders, Brad Shimmin won plenty of the football at stoppages, while wingmen Adam Mansfield and Ross Sharer, both DYLAN Gillies, United. had big influences. Mansfield was close to best on ground in the first half, while Sharer was prominent in the second half. Sharing the roving duties, Dylan Gillies

and Mikey Brown were highly productive. The goal kicking duties were shared around with veteran Peter Burgoyne and Chad Spurr both kicking three goals. A trio of Tigers, Jamie McArdle, James Rundle and Ben Sobey each chimed in with a pair. For the Roosters, who were never in this contest from quarter time, Ned Seccafien was easily their best. The player with the longest name in the competition, Eamon Fetherstonhaugh was manful all game, while young talent from Willaston, Tim Brown-Pichugin played his best game for the club. Developing teenage footballer who has played juniors at Woodville-West Torrens, Dylan Wise, showed some signs while Ben Slattery and “in and under” type Ben Spiteri were serviceable. Another clear difference is the Roosters didn’t have a target in attack, with no one kicking more than a single major.

Reigning premiers run away with win Highly inaccurate in the first half (kicking 1.8 in the first quarter and 3.6 in the second), the reigning premiers still were able to dispose of Hamley Bridge by 40 points in this away fixture for the Magpies. Incredibly, the Bombers were still in touch at three quarter time, as they had kicked 5.2 to this point, being four and a half goals down. “While in the end we had about 30 scoring shots to nine, we weren’t going well enough at three quarter time to think we were in control (of this game),” premiership coach Keith Earl said. “But in the last quarter we kicked straighter – we steadied and kicked 4.1 – with Nathan

Hornhardt slotting through a couple. “They maintained their tackling and pressure for a good portion of the contest.

BRAD Hardie, Mallala.

Plains Producer, Wednesday June 1, 2011

“We didn’t get any dominance from the restarts and their midfielders were good.” Still the usual suspects including Joel Montgomerie, 2009 Plains Producer medallist Liam Whitwell, diminutive wingman Brad Hardie, Josh Seal and Jason Earl were keys in the engine room and across the centre for Mallala. James Wildbore and Robert Montgomery, although the latter got reported, were solid across half back Strong build half forward, 19-year-old Brent Harris, was main target in attack with a four-goal bag. Brian Montgomery was a chief culprit with the lack of Magpies scoreboard pressure with 1.4

Leading Goal Kickers

ASSOCIATION coach, Andy Michael.

Tigers clawing up the ladder •From back page The Tigers have forced their way to third place on a tight premiership table, after an accomplished 58-point win over Two Wells last Saturday. After a tight opening term, four unanswered goals in the second pushed the momentum in United’s favour, before they sealed the contest at Two Wells Oval with five more goals in the third term. “Yes, we started to control the game in the second term,” a happy United coach Travis Opitz said. “We were about eight up at three quarter time, but were frustratingly inaccurate in the last term. “It was a good all round team effort, although we need to learn how to really kill sides off.” Out of the back pocket, Jack Chapman was outstanding, in a good defensive effort by the Tigers back six. Mark Pym and Ben Starr, in his role

APFL Premiership Table

Bombers big man Justin Schahinger continued his outstanding season, being the dominant big man in the competition. The other four top players in the best player list were the Bombers’ Port Adelaide Magpies connection, Dylan Lockwood, Aaron Christmann and Josh Moody around the ball and Adam Pepe as a key defender. Jed Eastwood was also serviceable on his wing, while veteran Brett Burgess kicked five of his team’s seven goals at full forward. In a team that has registered just one victory so far this winter, Burgess’s haul of 27 goals at an average of four and a half a game is excellent.

SPORT v Football

Blockbuster at Mallala Can Tigers close down Magpies’ creative play? match of the round this week is definitely the Tigers versus Magpies clash at Mallala Oval. Both have four wins and sit respectively third and fourth (separated only by percentage) at the moment, on a very tight premiership ladder. Last time these two sides met, the Tigers were yet to meet their full potential, and in a thriller went down to Keith Earl’s troops by the smallest of possible margins. The Magpies still have a large reliance on the potent midfield ground, but the key will be to stop supply to young big man Brent Harris and Brian Montgomery in attack. While the midfield brigade is a noted strength of the hosts in this game, United on-ballers, including recruits Dylan Gillies and former Magpie junior Mikey Brown add to the depth in this area for the Tigers. Another impressive aspect is the United team isn’t reliant on one or two targets in attack, while Peter Burgoyne leads the way with 19; the only other player in double figures on the goal kicking list is James Rundle with 10. The question is, can the tough and unyielding defensive pressure of the Tigers close down the Magpies’ creative style of play? Travis Opitz believes his team plays the Mallala Oval well, and

is up for the challenge. This contest should be a blockbuster. But when you’re in doubt, it’s prudent to back the home team.

PETER ARGENT’S APFL preview

Bombers could surprise struggling Eagles

In fifth and seventh place on the premiership table currently, both these combinations need a win this week. A powerhouse of Adelaide Plains football for many years, the Eagles are really struggling at the moment. Last time they played the Bombers they were lucky to get away with a win, as Hamley Bridge were the better side on the day. It looks like HummocksWatchman will also be without the services of Joel Wilson at Hamley this week, which is a telling blow. There is no doubting the talent at the Eagles. Matt Higgs is among the most accomplished players in the competition, and there is talent all over the field. David Oswald has been consistent in defence as has Samuel Baker in a central role in the backlines. Ricky Mackereth is also proving his quality as a footballer. But their opponent Hamley Bridge has displayed some real endeavour and promise on occa-

peter’s KIss of Death: Mallala by 7 Hamley by 17 Balaklava by 67 sions and for periods of matches over the last month. Justin Schahinger has been in superb form and this has been reflection in the amount of football the midfielders like Josh Moody, Aaron Christmann and Dylan Lockwood can win. The have a true target in attack in Brett Burgess, although a couple more avenues to goal would help their cause. You’d expect a spirited response from the Eagles, the Bombers could steal this game.

Peckers will test the Roosters’ depth

The Roosters’ centenary season aspirations took a real blow when Lee Allmond left the ground last week against United, with what looked to be an ACL injury,

before half time. Tallan Leighton’s body is struggling as well. This will put extra pressure on the senior players likes Brad Fitzgerald, Ned and Peter Seccafien, Ben Spiteri and Ben Slattery. There is no doubt this is a great test of depth for the Roosters. The young developing players in the “red and white” side with need to step up and show leadership at home this week. They will have to deal with a tall forward line against Balaklava as well. The Peckers have many options in attack, including former Power rookie listed athlete Glenn Dawson, Jono Brice and playing coach, Stuart Lamond. Both Hayden and Justin Walker, depending on who the coach wants to use in ruck, will give first use of the ball to the likes of Ben Catford, Sam Rowland and Aaron Cocks. Lamond wasn’t happy with the loss before the club’s bye, and will be looking for an aggressive response in this game. If they get on a run there could be collateral damage by 5pm at Two Wells Oval. All the key performance indicators suggest a comprehensive and percentage boosting win by the second placed Peckers in this game.

Cats remain undefeated

CAT Scott Atkinson kicked eight in Saturday’s clash with BBH.

22 www.plainsproducer.com.au

In control from the outset, Blyth-Snowtown produced a handsome 57-point victory over the second placed BBH Rams, in the round six topof-the-table encounter. The frugal defence only conceded a single goal in the first half, while from a half forward flank; Scott Atkinson kicked eight goals on his own in the victory. “A very good first quarter set us up,” Cats coach Brett Ireland said, “In a way it was a bit of a replay of the corresponding game last year. “There had been a lot of talk about the Rams new game plan and their intensity and pressure around the ball. “We were ready for that. “BBH had a real crack at us in the third quarter, kicking the first two goals of the term, but we finished

REPORT: By Peter Argent with the last four majors to virtually seal the contest.” Ryan Darling again led from the front, whilst being tagged by Stephen Mann, still won plenty of clearances in the middle in a 30 plus possession game. Along with Atkinson’s eight in a return to form, Jarrod Gillings also helped out with four goals. Wayne Slattery was the outstanding ruckman in the contest. The back six was simply impressive again – Kyle Griffin and Craig Robinson were valuable lieutenants to the form defender in NEFL football, Cats centre half back Gareth Ottens In his coach’s eyes, AJ Wood played his best game for the season, while Kiel Kennett and Adam Conradi rounded out a strong unit. Awkward but effective Nick McCormack won his usual amount of the ball, while Aaryn Lloyd and Simon McCormack were also effective as well. The story was as glowing for the Rams. Matt Jackman and Johnny Lynch were the best in the red, white and blue jumper, while Pete Mann and James Reilly were serviceable.

Saints crush Tigers

Dominant early and finishing the game strongly, EudundaRobertstown secured its first premiership points of the season, with the emphatic 94-point victory over the BSR Tigers.

Seven goals to two in the first term opened the flood gates, and the Saints drove home the victory with five goals each in the third and final quarters. After having to get through a fitness test, Rowan Prior was superb around the ball in the win, while Travis Friebel, Gabe Laucke in defence and small man Marek Sajewicz all had telling influences. Leigh Kimpton and playing coach Corey Ah Chee also were good in an even team effort. The trio of Sajewicz, Jarred Mosey and veteran Stephen Geister all kicked three goals for Eudunda-Robertstown, being among the Saints’ 11 separate goal kickers during the match. For the home team Simon Hayes, Adam Mackenzie and Lachie Bunfield were the best in a modest effort by the Tigers where they only had 13 scoring shots to 37. Also a district cricketer, Kyron Burgess kicked two goals for BSR.

Eagles thump Demons

The Demons endured a 136-point thumping by 2010 grand finalists Mintaro-Manoora at Clare Oval on Saturday. South were only competitive for one quarter, the second where they kicked two goals, with the Eagles could still manage three. Brad Charnstrom had an easy day in the coaches’ box, as he had winners all over the ground. Captain Mick Young gave the team drive in a “best on ground”

display, while Ryan McDermid and recruit from Nuriootpa Shawn Gibson were creative in the middle. Aaron Ackland dominated the big man department. Up forward goal kicking options were plentiful. Ben Kerslake, Nathan Scott and Jamie Milburn kicked five each, while Aaron Bevis chimed in with four. For a well beaten South Clare side Sam Heinrich, the athletic Michael Liebelt and Wayne Hutchinson competed manfully.

Hawks set up early win

Seven unanswered goals in the second term set up RSMU’s victory over North Clare on home soil last week. The remainder of the contest was pretty even, with the Hawks collecting the chocolates in the end by 40 points. Zack Hier’s outstanding season is continuing, producing yet another best on ground display, while the hard running Luke Percy gave his side speed through the middle. Clint Foster kicked six goals in a strong display, while Sam Noack, young talent Ben Moreton and Luke Sandland all performed well. Young Will Smith was the Roosters’ best, followed by man mountain Nick Prokopec, who kicked six of his team’s eight goals in a lone hand in attack. Thomas Blum, Brendan Pudney and Scott Baggs were serviceable for a North Clare team that doesn’t look like finals contenders.

Croquet Clare

Clare Croquet Club members are so committed to their sport that many members play all year round! Saturday Social play is held between the Summer and Winter competitions. The current Winter Competition commences this Saturday, June 4, with singles games (commencing at 1pm), and will continue for nine weeks. Teams for the first game are: Snowtown Blue v Clare Orange at Snowtown; Port Wakefield v Clare Black at Balaklava; Clare Black v Snowtown White at Clare. Rae Gierke, current club coach and member of the South Australian Development Squad, has been coaching people from throughout the Valleys regularly on Saturdays for the past few months. She has invited members of the University 3A, local golf players, local tennis players and the general public to her coaching sessions. These sessions are held on Saturdays from 2 – 3.30pm and are followed by a tea, coffee and biscuits. The first coaching session is free and following sessions are $5 to assist the club in maintenance of the courts. Rae’s time is generously given in an endeavour to encourage a wide range of people to experience this fascinating game. Anyone wishing to join coaching sessions are welcome. Rae has drawn up a games roster for Winter Pennants play, so that these coaching sessions can continue on one court while the other is used for Pennants Play.

Golf Balaklava men

Perfect conditions last Saturday drew 27 wannabees to the greensward, some hell-bent on taking out the Stableford round, others to also compete and so complete the annual President’s and Captain’s Trophies. A truncated, five-strong A grade group was led home by mighty Merv Hameister, with an insurmountable score of 42 points, leaving Wayne Nagle (38) to claim second place and Jimmie Breuer (37) third. P Thompson (36) and D Taylor (28) rounded out the business. By comparison, the B grade field was bursting, with no less than 12 flailing fiends fighting it out. Bill “B-Double” Berry buried a determined Dean Trickett, who in turn collared Callum Michael, all with 39 points, by way of a count-back. Free to roam unhindered to the warming fire at the 19th were D Rodgers (37), D Robinson (37), Ben Michael (33), Norma Taylor (33), L Masson (31), S “welcome back” Jonas (31), D “Stitches” Addison (26), Barry Michael (26) and the epitome of elegance, Patricia Anderson (25). The C grade mob, 10 strong, was dominated by Geoff Leo, who smote a cool 45, decimating the aspirations of Austin Henstridge (39) and monstering Moya Hayes’ 36 points. Dodging this mayhem were M Hahesy (35), D Michael (33), G Anderson (32), Joan Anderson (31), Louise Michael (31), R Campbell (30) and Chris Hahesy (28). In a flurry of feathers, no less than four Birdies were struck, by Wayne Nagle at the 15th, Merv Hameister (3rd), Bill Berry (8th) and Greg Anderson (8th). Nearest The Pins were pinned down by Jimmie Breuer at the 3rd, Greg Anderson (8th), Les Masson (10th), Peter Thompson (15th) and Merv. Hameister (17th). Bill Berry and Austin Henstridge battled almost hole-for-hole in the final of the President’s Trophy, won by the latter only with the last putt at the 18th, while ahead of them, Dean Trickett and Jimmie Breuer fought out the Captain’s Trophy final, claimed after the 16th 3/2 by Dean. The Producer’s ‘Player of the Year’ incentive saw Geoff Leo awarded 5 points, Merv Hameister 4, Bill Berry 3, Dean Trickett 2 and Callum Michael 1. This weekend we’ll meet up for an Aggregate four-ball Stableford competition, to be controlled by Doug Taylor and Brian Kemp. Dean Trickett’s down to do the ol’ chook wheel but we’ll probably put him on fire-place duties instead. Subs are now due, with messages in the mail to all and sundry. It is worth noting that those who are not ‘financial’ will be unable to win any prizes for their efforts, so please respond with all due alacrity.

Members were saddened by the passing of Life Member Brian Lines. Brian, who was affectionately known as “Salty”, was a great contributor to the club over many years as well as a tough competitor, and our sympathy is extended to Margaret and her family. A minute’s silence was held in his honour on Saturday night after the game. With conditions a little tougher after the rain, the average points tally was a lot lower than in the last few rounds. Club president Anton Noack toughed it out to win Thursday’s stableford competition with 41 pts, on a count back from Dennis Hawke 41 and Ian Ferguson 40.

Results from Saturday May 28’s Bob Oxlade Memorial Trophy, Stroke, Eclectic, Putting competition and Monthly Medal. Sponsor: Caddie Shack. Players: 41 men and one Lady. Night golf on Friday saw 30 players attend what resulted in a late night for some brave souls. I am sure that they not only enjoyed the golf and festivities after the game, but of course dragged themselves out of bed and fronted again to make up the 41 members playing for the Monthly Medal for the annual Bob Oxlade Memorial Trophy in the afternoon. Well done to all, a great effort. With the new changes on the course, some members are settling into a rhythm just in time for the championships. Last week our resident “Bishop” Scott Abbott carded a 71 off the stick to claim the first updated course record for the year. Saturday, Chris Girling shot a 72 off the stick, which appears to be a warning that it will be “game on” in the weeks to come. Well done lads, keep up the good golf. Saturday was really Yogi’s day. I mean really, he wins A grade with nett 60, takes out NTP’s on 2, 6, 11 and also birdies the second well done. Yogi was deadly on the PAR 3’s and his NTP on 6 must have made him swallow his heart, as it appeared to be inches from the hole – not to mention him nailing the birdie on the second with another fine tee shot. Chris Girling 62 took second place and I’m told he had a couple of horror holes in his 72, so the mind boggles really. Simon Grigg, another solid performer who is lurking in the shadows, finished third with 64. Gary Payne was solid with Nett 60 to be not only being good enough to win the Monthly Medal, but was successful winning both the Bob Oxlade Memorial Trophy and B grade on the day. Shorty Paul, who is easing back into the swing of things, finished with nett 64 to take second position in B grade, and Bob Hogg third with nett 66 to take out third place. Ian Telfer surprised a few with a fine win in C grade, with nett 66 and Leon Zbierski finishing with 68 to take out second place and John Harrison third with nett 73. With the championships starting on June 25, players will be sorting out those shots which give them grief each week in search of the grade championships. The Putting competition on the day was equally shared by both Simon Grigg and Les Grafton, both with 23 putts. I noticed Adam hitting off the old 8th tee – hmmm was it a tired shot? Or was he looking for his ball from the night golf? Hans was also seen playing from the old 14th tee, and after another fine driving display all day was asked how he was playing and replied, “Damn awful, thank you!” Results A grade: Y Frencken 60, C Girling 62, Si Grigg 64, St Grigg 68, L Grafton 69, SAbbott 71, J Ball 71, V Hatch 73, R Thompson 73 and M Davies 74.

Hummocks girls unstoppable PETER ARGENT’S APNA review

MELISSA Wilson, Virginia watches eagerly as Hummocks keeper Nikki Beall tries to intercept a pass meant for Virginia’s Kelly Newman, during the A3 match at Port Wakefield on Saturday.

E: pla.wordsmith@bigpond.com M: 0411 178 444

Hummocks continued its unbeaten streak with a solid 16goal victory over the Ramettes in their round eight contest. Playing Virginia at the Pt Wakefield courts on Saturday, the Eagles went on to win 51-35, but were pretty unconvincing in claiming the premiership points. The ladder leaders pressed a four-goal quarter time advantage into a 12-goal half time lead. By three quarter time, the scoreboard read Hummocks 40 to Virginia 26. “The girls were pretty unhappy with their performance on Saturday, as they have such high expectations of themselves and each other, but credit must be given to Virginia,” playing coach Samantha Nicholls explained. “We were just pretty flat and no-one could quite put their finger on it. “Virginia produced a much better team performance, than when we played them last time. “The pleasing thing from my perspective is that we still won all quarters and really

knuckled down at critical times. “When Virginia got on a bit of a roll and scored few goals, and we still able to turn it (the momentum) around. “Each player had their own personal goals on Saturday and it’s safe to say that some of them weren’t achieved. “But on refection that just gives us something to work on at training this week.” The umpires vote for the Best player for the winners was goal keeper Mel Moulds. The Eagles coaching staff were happy with Jade Wilkins at wing attack in her debut A1 netball match. Hummocks is currently trying to find a replacement in this role for Sarah Young who is pregnant and Wilkins produced a solid performance. Virginia’s indigenous talent, defender Nicole Agius, received the umpires’ nod for the Ramettes. Virigina’s goal shooter, who was a junior at Gawler Central in the neighbouring BLG competition, Olivia Hoogenhout, was quite

accurate. Despite, what the Eagles coaching staff regard as a poor performance, they are still heavy favourites for the 2001 A1 title. Wells girls double Longies’ score At the Two Wells courts, the Roosters had a handsome win over Long Plains, doubling their score. The final result was the Roosters 62 to Long Plains 31. Up by four goals at quarter time, Two Wells side broke the game open in the middle two terms. “We had the game under control after quarter time,” Roosters spokesperson Tania Kemp said. “The girls had a

great second term scoring 17 to eight before an even more impressive in the third shooting 19 to five. “I made a few changes at the last break, but we still won the quarter 11-7.” Kemp was really pleased with the performance of her wing defence Nicole Hardy; the player she believed had the most telling influence on the contest, while Rebecca Pym was best player in the officials’ eyes. In the GS bib, Steph Walker was strong and consistent all game. Conversely, Long Plains coach Josie McArdle was frustrated. “Our start was ok, but our second and third

quarters were terrible,” McArdle mused. “Jess Daniel was our best player at goal keeper, while Leah Tynan competed strongly all game either at centre or wing attack. “Shae Walker did an admirable job nullifying her opponent at goal defence.” McArdle’s problems with depth in this side will be further exacerbated with the loss of star Jane McBride for the next couple of games. Mallala’s solid win over Bombers Mallala ensured a two game buffer in fourth place, with a solid 11-goal win over the Bombers In this away game for the Magpies, they won 47 to Hamley Bridge 36. More potent in the opening term, Mallala took a five goal lead into the first break. There was a steady

increase to nine goals at half time, before the advantage went to double figures at lemons. Mallala’s umpires’ award went to Jessica Bates, while Bombers goal attack Sarah Koch

led the way for the vanquished. Other noteworthy performers in this contest included Ashleigh Jarman, Keegan Henneker and Alison Schahinger.

This allowed Mallala a sniff, and their GA took advantage with some accurate shooting. Hamley held on however for a 24 to 21 goal win.

Mallala started the game strongly, holding Hamley Bridge scoreless in the first quarter The second quarter was evenly fought out but the Magpies again forged ahead in the penultimate quarter with their GD outstanding. It was Mallala who finished the stronger, running out winners by 18 goals to 6.

Nantawarra park gets NRM help The Nantawarra Conservation Park is to be fenced off from wandering stock to protect and help restore some of the area’s remaining remnant native vegetation. The $8300 fencing project is funded through Northern and Yorke Natural Resources Management Board’s (NYNRMB) Community Grants funding to South Hummocks Agricultural Bureau. Nantawarra is north east of Port Wakefield. Lynne Walden, DENR regional manager (NY region), said maintaining biodiversity was a key function of the state wide NRM’s environmental protection work.

Call 000 in emergency say ambo’s It’s not just about getting to hospital. It’s about getting fast, appropriate care. That’s the message from SA Ambulance Service, as the organisation reminds people to always call triple-zero (000) in an emergency. While some people think it’s faster and less expensive to drive themselves or a loved one to hospital, the ambulance service say it’s a risky move. “It’s not cheaper or quicker if they cause an accident on their way to hospital because they are not fully concentrating on the road,” said Neale Sutton, executive director of country patient services, from SA Ambulance Service. “You’re putting other community members at risk. “On the way to hospital, the patient’s condition could also deteriorate. This is why they need to be in the expert hands of our paramedics and ambulance officers.” Ambulance personnel often hear of people driving themselves or loved ones to hospital with serious medical conditions or injuries. In cases such as spinal injury, moving people without proper knowledge or equipment could even result in permanent disability. Driving yourself to hospital also delays treatment, said Mr Sutton. “Dialling 000 means immediate life-saving advice over the phone from highly trained SA Ambulance Service call-takers while the right kind of care is on its way. It might not even be an ambulance that is needed. It could be a MedSTAR retrieval team in a helicopter. The expert staff in our Emergency Operations Centre are able to make an assessment and determine what is required. “And in the mean time, SA Ambulance Service will be able to alert the receiving hospital to be ready for the patient. That saves time too. “Even in the country, the ambulance isn’t that far away, and life-saving advice is as close as a phone call. “The best thing is to stay home, call 000 and we’ll coordinate the response for you.”

Rams train on track Virginia rocks Eagles in one-sided affair Now in top spot with five victories, Virginia had an emphatic 75-point win over the HummocksWatchman Eagles at Port Wakefield Oval. This was a dramatic turn-around from the last time these teams faced off, when the Eagles won by 22 points at Virginia in round two. Strong out of the blocks, the Rams were on top from the outset. They kicked six goals to one in the opening stanza,

PETER ARGENT’S APFL review E: pla.wordsmith@bigpond.com M: 0411 178 444

then followed with five more in the second, while the Eagles were only able to slot through one in this quarter. The third quarter was a haphazard affair with only one goal being kicked

by the Eagles, before the Rams slammed through eight in the last quarter. “We have pretty well turned it right around since the last time we played them,” Rams coach and SANFL Hall of Famer Greg Phillips said. “The group had something to prove and they delivered. “Our start was important, as for the majority of last year we’d been playing a lot of catch up football.” Phillips was impressed with the high leaping Leif Burdon in ruck, this gives him the opportunity to play Ben Galic at centre. He was

impressive with nine tackles to add to his field play and ruck work. The Rams’ on-ball brigade of vice captain Anthony Johnston, first year player at the club Ben Russel, Troy Wilkey and the in-form Caleb Howell all had a decisive influence. Full back Emmanuel Tsimiklis led a strong and determined defence, with Devon Oliver and Nathan Warren giving drive of their respective half-back flanks. Usual full-back, left footer Adrian Mark was used productively off a wing in this game, while indigenous talent Graham Rigney was creative. On-ballers Johnston and Howell

both finished with four goals each, while key target up forward Brendon Niklaus slotted through three. Best for the once mighty Eagles was Dylan Cicolella, defender David Oswald and Sam Baker. Moonta recruit, the helmeted Ricky Mackereth, captain Matthew Higgs and Duntin Guthberg were the best of the rest for Hummocks-Watchman, while Tim Forrest was the only player to kick more than one major.

Sports star Leah makes women’s football team

RAMS ruckman Leif Burdon tussles with Eagle Simon Schutz at a centre bounce during Saturday’s A grade match at Port Wakefield.

Young achiever, Leah Tynan, 19, is thrilled to have been picked for the State Women’s football team. Leah joined many other hopefuls for trials in February to get a spot on the team. She found out she made the cut on May 9. “I was very happy when I found out, it’s an honour to be on the State team, not to mention a great opportunity,” Leah said. Leah is heavily involved in local sports and holds a great passion for it. She is kept busy on Saturdays, being a water runner for United A and B grade footy teams, playing netball for Long Plains and she also plays tennis and basketball in the summer. The team will play several games held on the June long weekend in Adelaide. The games will start on Tuesday, June 7 and continue through to Friday

June 10, with the grand final being held on Saturday, June 11. “I’m so excited to be part of the team, I won’t even care if I am benched the whole time!” Leah said. Leah said she was encouraged by her netball coach to try out for the team. “I got an application form to try out for the under 21 team, and the coach urged all the players to try out for state,” Leah said. When asked about the change from netball to football, Leah admits she has always held a passion for football. “At school, I always seem to have a football in my hand, I love it,” she said. United Football Club have generously donated $200 towards Leah’s fees.

LEAH Tynan, of Long Plains, always has a footy in her hand.
