speed limit change our poll reveals the local backlash

Les Pearson reports: AN overwhelming number of regional road users have declared their opposition to the State government reducing the speed limit from 110km/h to 100km/h on 45 rural roads within 100 kilometres of Adelaide. Road Safety Minister, Jennifer Rankine, announced the changes on Tuesday last week, claiming the changes are coming in to reduce the state’s road toll. But thousands of people – not all local resiudents – rejected the plan in a poll conducted on the Plains Producer Facebook

page from last Tuesday afternoon. More than 91 per cent of about 5700 voters opposed the change. Only 7.3 per cent agreed with the speed limit reduction,

while about 1.4 per cent were left undecided. The general public is not the only ones annoyed by the decision, with local councils also feeling slightly aggrieved many were not consulted on the changes. Liberal Member for Goyder, Steven Griffiths, contacted each of the five councils in his electorate in the wake of the State government announcement. n CONTINUED PAGE 7

A HUGE party will mark the opening of the Seabreeze Estate Development’s initial stages at Port Wakefield on Sunday, December 4. Graders last week built a temporary access road and car park on the future residential site, east of Port Wakefield near the golf course, in preparation for the event. Entertainment will include a live band, sausage sizzle, face painting and much more. Elders Playford special project manager, Colin Bellamy, said the event was about getting the community involved.

“It’s just a fun day for everybody,” Mr Bellamy said. “Because it is something like 90 kilometres from Adelaide, we want to make a big impact and do something different. “We’ll have the developers there, major sponsors, finance representatives, so any questions can be answered by the relevant people. “We also want to let the townsfolk what’s going to be happening. “It’s going to be a good day.” Mr Bellamy also said $150 from the sale of each block would be donated to the Little Heroes Foundation. n CONTINUED PAGE 4

NEWS v Mallala & District

The ‘science’ of education Science is all the rage at Mallala Primary School thanks to teacher, Prue Mossman, who has recently been nominated for a prestige 2012 BHP Billiton Science teacher Award. Prue, who has been teaching at Mallala for four years, was nominated for her ability and enthusiasm to teach science in a fun and dynamic way. While trained to teach reception through to year seven, Prue teaches science to mainly the year sixes and sevens but has recently started up a Science in Schools group for all who are interested in learning hands on. “We have someone come in every week to show the kids science which happens in everyday life, and you can tell they enjoy it by the look on their faces,” Prue said. With some students asking to take the procedure home to practise, the science group has proven to be very popular with the entire school. “For a small school of just 180 students and to have 54 signed up for the group is just fantastic,” Prue said. The BHP Billiton Science Teacher Awards allows only one teacher from each state and territory to be nominated by their local Science Teachers Association (STA), and Prue was chosen to represent South Australia. “I’m very excited, I’ve filled out all the forms and now just have to wait for a phone interview,” Prue said. Prue is judged on a range of criteria which are noted in her forms, and also discussed in the interview. These

include professional knowledge practices and attributes. If Prue is successful in the interview, she will then travel to Melbourne during the BHP Billiton Science Awards Camp in February next year. She will also participate in a program that includes presenting best practice ideas and attending a celebratory dinner with other finalist teachers. “It would be a great experience to talk to other teachers in different states to compare techniques,” Prue said. One teacher will then be selected to attend the International Science and Engineering Fair in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, in May next year. n Another local teacher who has been recognised for her efforts in teaching science to special needs students, is Lower Light resident and Salisbury High science teacher, Anita Trenwith, who has been awarded this year’s Eureka Science Award. The 36-year-old has been teaching science at Salisbury High since 1998 and is part of the school’s Special Education Unit. It is her work here that earned her the top prize in the 2011 Australian Museum Eureka Awards for Science or Maths teaching. A finalist last year, Anita was nominated this year by one of her school’s senior leaders, and has a real passion for the often misunderstood subject area. “I’ve always had a fascination for science,” she said. But I didn’t want to be stuck in a lab. “I’ve always had that desire to teach, so it was just logical to combine the two. “I like the fact you can work things out in science. n On World Teacher’s day, October 28, Peterborough High School music teacher, Jenni Lester, received an Early Career Teacher award from the Council of Education Association South Australia (CEASA). Jenni did her schooling in Balaklava and is the daughter of Chris and David Lester of Balaklava.

IN BRIEF

Balaklava Christmas fair

It’s starting to feel like Christmas, with the pageant in Adelaide last weekend, families putting up their trees – not to mention the town of Balaklava getting ready for the annual Christmas Fair this Saturday! Held at Balaklava town hall, the fair will run from 9am until 4pm, featuring more than 40 stalls. Organiser, Brenda Nankivell, said the day should be quite busy. “It’s a big day every year and we’re usually choc-a-block in the morning,” Brenda said. All your Christmas shopping can be done in one day, with stalls providing something for every interest including handcrafted items, plants and produce, jewellery, embroidery, scrap booking and even Harry Potter items. There’s a vintage card making demonstration and face painting for the kids. Entry is a gold coin donation.

Report into chicken meat THE Australian Chicken Meat Federation (ACMF) has published a new report providing a profile of the Australian Chicken Meat industry, fast growing in the Adelaide Plains region. The report is the first of its kind, assembling important industry data in one document. ACMF executive director, Dr Andreas Dubs, said the report provides an up-to-date description of the industry, predominantly formed in the early 1960s. The report estimates Australians spend $5.6 billion per annum on chicken meat.

NEWS v District THEY DID IT AGAIN, THIS TIME FOR SHARON AND MANY OTHER CANCER FIGHTERS:

Behold the ‘boldaholda’ bunch

Front: Sally Wilson, Dylan Wood, Amy Barr, Jacob Butterfield, Terissa Smart, Jack Smart-Angel, Tahne Beaumont, Hannah Hoepner, Vanessa Barry, and Rebecca Mahon. It was another successful weekend for Balaklava Relay For Life team, Ovasholdaboldaholdas, after raising $21,500 for the Cancer Council, doubling their target of $10,000. The relay took place last Saturday and Sunday at Clare community oval, which involved the team walking around the oval for 19 hours.

The team participated in the event in 2009, when they raised $18,500. This year, after losing their respected team captain, Sharon Hoepner, to cancer in July, the team decided to rise to the challenge once again. The group was supported by the local community, with people dropping by to walk a few laps for them, and even the Balaklava tennis team took the baton for a several laps. But the impressive fundraising total did not come without effort and the support of the community. Team member Abbie Tiller, named “Queen of the Relay” said she was “blown away by the generosity.” “Asking people to buy merchandise, chocolates, or raffle

tickets, or to donate cash or goods can be a hard task, but rarely did we hear the word ‘no’,” Abbie said. A candlelight ceremony was held on Saturday night, which showed just how hard the district has been hit, with an emotional power point presentation picturing both local cancer survivors and those who had lost their fight. “Cancer is a disease which has affected everyone is some way or another, and to some day find a cure would be a dream come true for most people,” Abbie said. Sharon Hoepner’s daughters, Hannah and Kimberley, officially opened the relay on the Saturday afternoon, with Sharon’s father, Merv Smitham, of Blyth, making a generous donation, helping the team over the $20,000 line.

NEWS v District

Police target trucks in ‘Wakefield intercept’ YORKE and Mid North police Highway Patrol Section staged “Operation Wakefield Intercept” on the Port Wakefield Highway, north of Port Wakefield, last Thursday. The operation aimed to “enhance road safety” for both heavy and light vehicles travelling north of Adelaide to locations across the state. This operation also utilised special powers relating to Drug Transit Routes. Highway patrols from both Yorke and Mid North and Barossa police service areas worked with SAPOL’s Heavy Vehicle Enforcement Section, members of Traffic Operations Drug & Alcohol Testing Section and Dog Operations, along with patrol officers from Port Wakefield and Port Pirie. Also present were Transport Safety Officers from the Department of Transport, Energy and Infrastructure. During a five-hour period, 118 heavy vehicles including three passenger buses and more than 120 light vehicles were stopped and screened for roadworthiness. From this, 190 drivers submitted to a roadside alcotest and 50 drivers to a drug test. No driver tested positive for alcohol. A number of drivers tested positive for prescribed drugs with one receiving a 24 hour direction not to drive after testing positive for methamphetamine. About 20 defect notices were issued with one heavy vehicle immediately grounded due to serious safety concerns. Police drug detection dogs detected a number of persons in possession of controlled substances. This resulted in eight cannabis expiation notices being issued. A further 28 expiation notices were issued to drivers for traffic infringements.

PORT WAKEFIELD

AN 18-year-old Port Wakefield woman was reported by Snowtown Police for allowing her disqualified boyfriend to drive her car. The woman knew he was disqualified from driving and therefore committed offences herself by allowing him to drive. She will be summoned to court at a later date.

Benefits flow with clean energy plan Low and middle income households are now guaranteed to receive tax cuts or rises in their payments following the passage of the Federal government’s Clean Energy Future legislation by the Senate last week. From July 1, any taxpayer earning less than $18,200 will no longer have to pay tax. Labor MP for Wakefield, Nick Champion, said families, pensioners, self funded retirees and students from Elizabeth to the Mid North would benefit from the passage of the legislation. In Wakefield: •More than 17,300 families will receive household assistance through their Family assistance payments.

•More than 30,500 pensioners and more than 1,000 self-funded retirees will receive an extra $338 per year if they are single and up to $510 per year for couples combined. •More than 3,100 students will get up to $177 extra per year. The amount they get will depend on their rate and type of payment (e.g. Austudy, Abstudy, or Youth Allowance). The Clean Energy Future legislation passed by the Senate allegedly will cut 160 million tonnes of pollution from the atmosphere by 2020, enabling Australia to cut emissions by 5 per cent on 2000 levels. This is equivalent to taking 45 million cars off the road.

A DAMAGED grave at Balaklava cemetery.

Drivers blamed for grave damage VISITORS to the Balaklava cemetery are inadvertently damaging graves by driving over the edges of burials with their vehicles. Cook Memorials owner, David Cook, said a number of graves have been run over in recent months, resulting in chipping and cracking of the memorials. “What I suspect is happening, is people who perhaps can’t get out of their vehicle, are driving down the paths and running right over some of the graves, causing quite a bit of damage,” he said. “Sometimes they’re just not negotiating the corners properly. I can think of about four graves that have been damaged because of it.” A vehicle has already damaged a recently installed monument. Mr Cook said it was a distressing find for relatives. “If you had a family members buried there and people were driving their cars over (the grave), it doesn’t make for happy thoughts,” he said.

Not only are family members distressed but Mr Cook’s business is also feeling it, offering free repairs to the damaged memorials. He said there is a sign stipulating vehicles must not be driven past a certain point in the cemetery but it is either not being seen, or just ignored. Wakefield Regional Council infrastructure services manager, David Hassett, clarified the vehicular access policy of the Balaklava cemetery. “There are signs in place restricting vehicles. Most cemeteries have no vehicular access and the cars are to remain outside,” he said. “The only vehicles that should have access within the graves area are maintenance vehicles only. “This includes the contractors placing the memorials.” Mr Cook believed if more signs were erected in the cemetery, it could reduce the number of future instances where graves are damaged by unauthorised vehicles accessing the cemetery.

More digital TV channels RURAL television viewers experiencing bad digital television reception can expect a clearer picture in the new year. This includes viewers in the Clare region. Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy Minister, Stephen Conroy, said the government has pledged $34 million over four years to enable commercial television broadcasters to deliver all digital TV channels to their audiences via terrestrial broadcast in regional South Australia. “For decades, viewers in these smaller TV licence areas have put up with having only two commercial TV channels, often missing out on some of the country’s most popular programming,” he said.

“The funding was provided to assist regional commercial broadcasters to install 22 new transmitters throughout regional and remote licence areas, giving them the capacity to transmit all new digital TV channels. “The new transmitters will mean that by early 2012, South Australians will have access to the full suite of digital television services – many for the very first time. Eighteen new transmitters will be up and running in South Australia by the end of this year at existing sites, including Clare. Another four at Quorn, Burra, Lameroo and Tumby Bay are scheduled to be completed by the end of February 2012, well in advance of switchover in the second half of 2013.

Port Wakefield estate launch • From Page 1 “We hope everyone comes up and has a good time and hopefully the Little Heroes Foundation can make a quid out of it as well,” he said. Seabreeze Estate belongs to development company, Access Civil. The 34 allotments of stage one are now on sale, while part of the 36 allotments of stage two are also on the market. Four major builders will be building show homes in coming

months, while Mr Bellamy and fellow special project manager, Greg Johnson, will be working on-site a few days per week. Mr Bellamy said there was fairly solid interest from buyers. “We’ve got quite a few blocks under contract already, which is good,” he said. Locals in the town had also responded well as the development progressed. “There’s been a phenomenal response from people,” Mr Bellamy said. “It is hoped this will

help put Port Wakefield on the map a bit more.” The Seabreeze Estate will potentially be 300 blocks. “We might make the other stages a bit bigger, depending on how we go with these initial stages,” Mr Bellamy explained. Mr Bellamy said selling the first blocks had been a long time coming. “It’s probably three and a half years in the making,” he said. Wakefield Regional Council has approved the development’s

internal layout, block sizes and road layout, although Department of Transport and Energy and Infrastructure has raised traffic flow concerns. Regardless, Mr Bellamy is confident the development will go ahead. “We’ve been involved with this for ages and it has been frustrating but we’ve just had to keep moving on,” he said. “It’s going to happen and we’re pretty excited about this one.”

The oldest 1936er, Don Tiller, lit the candles, with the youngest ‘36er, Elaine Rosenzweig, cutting the cake honours. The group discovered two of their members had traced their ancestry back to the first settlers arriving in 1836 on the HMS Buffalo. A lot of reminiscing and talking went on, with verses also read out from, “It’s tough to be a senior”. Beryl Sandow expressed a vote of thanks to organisers Elaine Jericho and Joan Robinson for arranging a wonderful day.

Tony Piccolo at work in the Chairman’s seat in the House of Assembly with Clerk of the House of Assembly, Mr Malcolm Lehman (left) and Deputy Clerk, Mr Rick Crump.

Piccolo Deputy Speaker State Member of Parliament for Light, Tony Piccolo, was elected to the position of Deputy Speaker of the House of Assembly last week. The position was vacated by Chloe Fox, who was recently appointed to Cabinet as Minister for Transport Services. Mr Piccolo’s position of Parliamentary secretary to the Premier is now held by the Member for Taylor, Leesa Vlahos. Mr Piccolo was nominated to the position following his endorsement by the Labor Caucus and started his new duties within minutes of his

election by the House of Assembly. As Deputy Speaker and Chairman of Committees, Mr Piccolo fills in for the Speaker when she is not available and chairs the House of Assembly when it sits as a “committee of the whole” to consider Bills in detail. Mr Piccolo said his new role gave him greater responsibility with respect to the passage of Bills through Parliament. Mr Piccolo said he would continue with a number of projects he had started while Parliamentary secretary, keen to see them through to their conclusion.

‘$200 million backlog’ on road spending THE impending speed limit reductions from 110 km/h to 100km/h on rural roads within 100 kilometres of Adelaide and on Yorke Peninsula is masking a $200 million backlog of South Australian road maintenance, according to Shadow Road Safety Minister, Mark Goldsworthy. The changes will affect 45 roads in rural South Australia. “While Labor has shuffled around the Road Safety portfolio from Minister to Minister five times in the last two and a half years, South Australia’s roads are deteriorating and our road maintenance backlog has reached $200 million,” Mr Goldsworthy said. “One of the best ways to improve road safety is to improve the roads. “There is little doubt that the

conditions on our local road system contribute to the number of deaths and injuries on our roads. “Regional South Australians should not be penalised by reduced speed limits because the Labor Government has neglected our road network.” Road Safety Minister, Jennifer Rankine, declared the State government had invested heavily in safety upgrades on country roads. “About $371 million has been spent on road maintenance in rural South Australia over the past five years using a combination of state and federal funding,” she said. “We’ve spent more than $17 million improving safety on these 45 sections of road over the same period. “More than $110 million has been invested into arterial roads

over the past five years through the Rural Road Safety Program, the Shoulder Sealing Program, the Responsive Road Safety Program and the State Black Spot Program.” Mr Goldsworthy also believed the reduced speed limits made way for further ‘revenue raising’. “Lowering speed limits and increasing speeding fines is just another attempt by this Labor Government to raise revenue,” he said. Ms Rankine dismissed the claim. “Personally, I’d be delighted if we didn’t earn one extra cent in revenue from these changes in speed limits,” she said. “All revenue from speeding fines goes into the Community Road Safety Fund. “This fund is used to improve road safety measures.”

Selected comments from our Facebook poll

WHAT YOU SAID:

‘Longer and more dangerous to overtake trucks’ Matthew Taylor: Does the SA government understand that it will take longer to overtake trucks, be more dangerous and eventually back more cars up behind trucks because people will be less willing to overtake? Paul Sharer: How does reducing the speed limit help? There will sadly always be accidents no matter what the speed is. Nicole Graham: If they spent money on keeping the roads usable and safe they wouldn’t have to reduce the speed limit. Jena Crosbie: What a load of crock. They might as well put all of us that are on our full licence back on to our P’s! We weren’t given the right to do 110km/h for there to be no roads with that speed limit for no reason! Daniel Lish: In a way, reducing the speed limit increases the amount of time it takes you to reach your destination by 10 per cent. Also, you increase the chance of fatigue becoming the fault of an accident. But in reality, if you where to travel constantly for an hour at 110km/h, you would in turn travel 110 kilometres. So compared to the 100km/h

proposed speed limit, in an hour you would have travelled 10 kilometres less. So your desired destination would take six minutes longer to get to, every hour. So, do the maths before you complain, honestly.

Bethany Gilbert: This is a stupid idea. The people that are reckless drivers who speed and cause crashes will not slow down just because the signs have been changed. The only people that are going to follow this decision are the responsible drivers who do not drive stupidly. Wendy Schulz: 100km, 200km, 500km, what’s the difference? We should all just drive safely wherever we are!! Wendy Finch: Just another opportunity for revenue raising and another example of the policy makers having little knowledge of the inhabitants who

dwell north of Gepps Cross! Alex Hill: It isn’t the speed that causes accidents it is the people driving the cars that cause accidents. If drivers operated their vehicle correctly, the accidents would decrease by half. Accidents can’t be stopped but we can all do our bit by just lifting your right foot just a little. Ta n ya M a nsf i e l d Jones: Depends on the road, some should have been 100km/h for years, but others are good enough to be driven on at 110km/h. Damian Lawrie: Make it harder to get a licence and only dedicated people will have one, those who are dedicated are usually sensible. I bet all the yes voters never have to travel out of the city and do the long hours anyway. Peter Coult: Revenue raising, definitely not road safety. Add five minutes to the trip from Adelaide, just five more minutes to fall asleep late at night. Making the roads safe costs money, reducing the speed limit makes money. Gotta pay those big pollie super accounts somehow. Just wait till they bring in the blanket 80 km/h on all gravel roads.

the Road Safety Advisory Council (RSAC), which conducted wide public consultation across the state through community forums,” she said. “The RSAC membership includes senior representatives from SA Police, the Motor Accident Commission, the Royal Automobile Association and the Centre for Automotive Safety Research. “One hundred and seventy responses were received following the release of the draft document in May this year with strong support for the Safe System approach behind the new strategy.” Ms Rankine suggested the change was the first step to saving lives on country roads. “Reducing average travel speed is the most effective way to reduce trauma and produce significant and immediate road safety benefits,” she said. “In the past five years, almost one fifth of all fatal and serious injury crashes in South Australia happened in the inner rural area within 100 kilometres of Adelaide. “By reducing the speed limit on these road sections, I’m told we could save 12 casualty crashes per year.” The changes will be in place before the busy Christmas holiday period.

•From page 1 Some roads on Yorke Peninsula also are subject to a speed limit change. Locally, Wakefield Regional Council CEO, Geoff Sheridan, found out on an online news source and Mallala council CEO, Charles Mansueto received a letter from the government advising of the change the day after the announcement. District Council of the Copper Coast chief executive officer, Peter Harder, received a call on the morning of the announcement. Yorke Peninsula council CEO, Andrew Cameron, also received a phone call on Tuesday morning, while District Council of Barunga West CEO, Nigel Hand, was informed by a ratepayer about the announcement. However, the government did forecast its proposed changes. The Plains Producer published a report on October 19. This also flagged a demonstration project of applying an 80km/h speed limit on unsealed roads. “The LGA was not consulted and is angry and is encouraging all councils to write to the (Road Safety) Minister,” Mr Griffiths said. Ms Rankine defended the State government’s consultation process. “The strategy was prepared by

ROAD Safety Minister, Jennifer Rankine, believes the speed limit reductions of 45 rural roads will result in less deaths on South Australian roads. Speed limits on selected roads within 100 kilometres of Adelaide and also on Yorke Peninsula will be reduced from 110km/h to 100km/h in coming weeks, as part of the State government’s Road Safety Strategy. “These changes are about saving the lives of South Australians,” Ms Rankine said. “(Some) 55 people have already been killed on our rural roads this year.” Ms Rankine agreed infrastructure investment was part of improving road safety. “Road safety infrastructure improvements are an integral part of our Road Safety Strategy, but

Bowls gets U.G.L.Y Port Wakefield Hotel is getting U.G.L.Y (Understanding, Generous, Likeable, You) this November as bartender Natasha Pope aims to raise $5000 in the Leukaemia Foundation’s U.G.L.Y. Bartender of the year. “Last year we had a target of $1000, but managed to raise $4000, so this year we decided to go better,” Natasha said. Along with meat raffles and a Billy G’s cookie fundraiser, Natasha has decided to once again hold an U.G.L.Y bowl’s day, which is a Port Wakefield favourite. “Last year it was just a really fun day and got the whole community together for a good cause,” she said. It’s at Port Wakefield Bowling Club at 9.30am for a 10am start, with full bar facilities, adult slushies, raffles and prizes. The cost is $80 for a team of four, which includes a charcoal BBQ and salad lunch. Teams can still register until Friday to Natasha on 8867 1016. A massive raffle is also on the go, with more than $1500 in prizes including an iPad 2, Xbox 360 and a digital camera, with tickets selling for only $10. On Sunday November 27, the hammer will be going down at the U.G.L.Y auction, held in the Port Wakefield Hotel beer garden, kicking off at noon.

CHAP too confusing MY mother is a reasonably new client with CHAP. She has her cleaning done once a fortnight, and agrees it is much easier to hand over the money and have the work done for her. Under the new system, every time you receive a monthly bill, you go and pay it at the post office, but if you don’t use CHAP’s services you have to ring Nuriootpa to let them know, or you will still get billed. I thought we were supposed to be saving money with CHAP? I worked with CHAP for 10 years, and now I am glad I no longer do. I’ve just finished paying mum’s bill, which was all too confusing.

Pet travel takes off

As the Christmas holidays begin to approach it’s time to plan the family getaway and it seems leaving Fido behind has become a thing of the past as a growing number of Australians pack their bags, load the car and take their pets along for the ride. Managing director at VetShopAustralia.com.au, Dr Mark Perissinotto, said that it was great to see pet owners including the family pet on holiday adventures but it was also very important to be well prepared to ensure pets remain safe and have as much fun as everyone else while on vacation. Here are VetShopAustralia.com.au’s top seven pet travel tips to help ensure a safe and no stress journey. 1. Establish good travel behaviour while your pet is young. 2. Ensure your pet is safely restrained in a dog harness or cat basket. 3. Stop for toilet and exercise breaks and keep your dog on a lead to prevent them running away and causing accidents. 4. Never leave your pet un-attended in a parked car as temperatures can reach lethal limits very quickly, even on overcast days. 5. Have your pet micro chipped and use a collar and nametag complete with contact phone number. 6.

Harvest report tips ‘above average’ year South Australia is on track for a slightly above-average harvest of 7.63 million tonnes, expected to inject an estimated $1.6 billion into the state’s economy. This figure is higher than the 10-year average farm-gate value of $1.5 billion, according to Primary Industries and Regions SA’s latest Crop Report. Agriculture Minister, Gail Gago, said the report shows a crop area of 4.13 million hectares – the largest on record – on the back of the 2010-11 bumper harvest of 10.34 million tonnes. “An above-average crop is welcome news for our state and farmers,” Ms Gago said.

“The relatively good finish to the season is despite below-average rainfall across most parts of the state in September following a dry winter. “Much-needed rain throughout October was timely and crucial for grain growers, as growing season rainfall from April to October was well below average for most regions.” The 2011-12 crop is predicted to be the state’s fourth largest in recent times. South Australia’s second biggest harvest was 9.36 million tonnes in 2001-02, while the third largest was in 2009-10 at 7.83 million tonnes. Harvesting is under way across most parts

of the state,starting with very early sown barley crops near Port Germein at the end of September. Peas, barley and canola followed in other districts last month. There is a record area of canola sown this year as a result of high prices, with plantings up by 20 percent on the previous high in 1999. The area and production of wheat plantings is down on last year, however remains above average. The barley crop area is up this year and production is also above average, while lentils look promising. PIRSA’s latest Crop and Pasture Report is available online at www.pir.sa.gov.au/ grains/cpr

ON top of the announcement of another year of solid yields this harvest, bulk grain handler Cargill has joined the throng of spending on its GrainFlow receival sites. Cargill’s GrainFlow site at Mallala will be expanded by an additional 25 kilotons. The company announced it has committed more than $10 million to expand a number of its grain receival sites in

Australia to increase performance and capacity in time for this season’s harvest. “With the prospect of a good Australian crop this harvest we have made the commitment to expand a number of our receival sites and purchased new grain handling equipment in time for this year’s harvest,” Cargill managing director, Ralph Selwood, said.

“This is expected to increase capacity in the GrainFlow network from 3.12 million tonnes to 3.45 million tonnes.” GrainFlow has also committed to expand its fleet of mobile grain handling equipment to provide additional drop off points for farmers and improve turnaround times during what is expected to be a busy harvest.

Maggie earns Young Achiever nomination While our region is full of young achievers, one Blyth resident in particular has been nominated for a Channel Nine Young Achiever award. Maggie Hentschke, 28, has been nominated for the Rural Doctors Workforce Agency Rural Health award, which recognises her contributions to the health of rural South Australians. In January She was awarded Wakefield Regional Council’s Young Citizens of the Year. “It is an absolute privilege to be nominated. It isn’t necessary – but it is lovely to have the effort I put into my work and community recognised,” Maggie said. Having completed masters in bachelor of behavioural sci-

ence, Maggie currently works for the Mid North Division of Rural Medicine in a combined Clinical Psychology and role and travels to see clients each week in Balaklava, Port Broughton and Clare. “I’ve been able to focus on youth psychological intervention which I find incredibly rewarding. Tough at times, but definitely worth the effort,” she said. Maggie also extends her time to community programs such as managing the Suicide Prevention program and being an active member of local Mental Health groups. “I believe in becoming involved and supporting your community,” she said. Suicide claims more lives

each year than motor vehicle accidents and so it is incredibly important people know where to go for help as the consequences of such a terrible event is often devastating for families and communities,” Maggie said. Maggie also provides support to the community both clinically and in an educational role, holding special information sessions after a rural community tragedy. “I also want to support the connection between sport and mental health, as sport is a wonderful means of connecting with others, increasing fitness and belonging to the group,” Maggie said. The awards night will be held on Saturday March 17.

Farmers planning to sell their farm can potentially pay little or no tax on the sale. Other farmers who prefer to scale down their activities and sell a paddock or two to finance their retirement can also reduce their tax liability enormously.

There are several highly attractive capital gains tax concessions which farmers, primary producers and nearly every other business operator can utilise when selling their business or property from which they operate their business. Consider the following common example: Joe is a farmer who bought his farm many years ago (after the introduction of capital gains tax in September 1985) for $400,000 and now wants to sell his 1000 acres for $2 million. He will have a capital gain of $1.6 million on the sale. Understandably, he’s worried about the size of his tax bill! The most generous small business concession is the “15 year exemption”. There are conditions he needs to satisfy (for example, he will need to retire), but if he can, his $1.6m capital gain will be entirely tax free. However, even if he doesn’t qualify for the 15 year exemption, all is not lost! A typical strategy which can also reduce his capital gains tax bill to nil is the following: Joe’s $1.6m capital gain is reduced by 50% because he has owned the farm for more than 12 months. This discount applies to both business assets and non-business assets such as rental properties and shares. He now has a capital gain of $800,000 to deal with. With appropriate advance planning, he can make sure he will be able to apply some of the other small business concessions as follows: he can access the 50% “active asset reduction”, reducing his capital gain down to $400,000. To this $400,000, he can apply the “small business retirement exemption” and reduce his taxable capital gain right down to nil. He doesn’t even have to retire; he could continue farming on a reduced scale and still qualify for this concession. However, if he is under 55 years of age, he’ll have to contribute the $400,000 into his superannuation fund (or purchase other business assets) to avoid paying tax on this last $400,000. If he’s 55 or over, he can take his entire $2m proceeds and not pay any tax at all, without needing to contribute anything into his superannuation fund. There are numerous other strategies primary producers nearing retirement can use to legitimately minimise their tax and hence optimise their lifestyle choices. These include: • Reducing tax on clearing sales by making superannuation contributions • Planning for the tax effective withdrawal of Farm Management Deposits • Taking advantage of the extremely attractive tax rules applying to superannuation (for example, lump sums and pensions taken by people 60 or older are generally tax free).

Tarlee tennis court proposal

TARLEE Tennis Club is pondering a possible court relocation given the state of its current playing facilities. The club is facing the dilemma of either seeking external funding assistance to upgrade the current courts or subdividing and selling the existing site for residential use and

the response from Tarlee residents. “From a planning point of view, we would want to know this project would have broadlybased community support,” Mr Blight said. “We told the club ‘we are interested in seeing the proposals and their sustainability, because if we build it, we want to know they are able to maintain it into the future’. “They’re working through the proposal and researching their options and council is happy to support that conversation. “From council’s perspective, recreation and sport is an important issue in all of our commu-

nity and a viable sporting culture is imperative to community wellbeing.” The floods from 12 months ago are also considered to have had an impact on the deterioration of the courts. “There is some concern it contributed to the instability underneath,” Mr Blight said. He explained the sealed surface over the top could retain moisture in the sub-soil, attracting root intrusion and upsetting the court surface. Mr Blight said council would wait for further correspondence from the tennis club, the ball very much in the club’s court at the moment.

Other important issues for primary producers include asset protection and succession planning. There are laws which enable farms to be transferred within the family free of stamp duty, providing specific requirements are satisfied. Proper planning could save tens of thousands of dollars.

Our day to remember

ALWAYS READY TO HELP A DIGGER: THAT’S what mates are for – Balaklava RSL president Peter Shaughnessy places a wreath on the Balaklava war memorial, with a supportive hand from fellow RSL member, Warren Durdin. BELOW: Carrying on the tradition – youngsters Charlotte Davey and Harrison Lemon share a respectful moment of remembrance as they place rosemary on the memorial.

DULCIE Williams places a wreath on behalf of Balaklava CWA. Fallen soldiers were remembered and saluted last Friday as many gathered in services held across the region for Remembrance Day. In Balaklava locals met at the Triangle at 10.40am, with Balaklava Primary School students in attendance. After the prayer of remembrance, wreaths and gifts were then placed on the memorial by Balaklava Primary year two student Harrison Lemon

and year one student Charlotte Davey. World War two veteran, Don Beare, also addressed students. The Ode was read by Balaklava RSL sub branch president, Peter Shaughnessy before the last post was played and two minutes silence began at 11am. At 11am on November 11, 1918, the guns of World War I fell silent as hostilities ceased, ending four years of death and destruction.

n Tarlee residents were joined by students of Tarlee Primary School, at a ceremony to commemorate Remembrance Day. Local resident, John Tayler, gave a brief history of the reason for the day and read out the names of those who enlisted in both World Wars from Tarlee and were killed in action. The students and others then placed red poppies and wreaths on the memorial in memory of all who served in all theatres of wars.

WAR veteran Don Beare chats to students about the significance of Remembrance Day, as (RIGHT) serviceman Daniel Kenny also addresses the children, explaining the meaning of the rising sun hat badge.

Fun and adventure at Victor camp One of our school values is ‘Fun’, and there was no shortage of fun at the Years 5/6/7 camp! On Monday, November 7, students headed to the Adare Centre at Victor Harbor for a few days of fun and adventure. That afternoon was spent exploring the house and the nearby beach. After dinner we visited the Penguin Centre on Granite Island. On the walk across the causeway to get to the island, some students saw seals swimming nearby the bridge, which was exciting. Next day saw us all head for adventure at the Greenhills Adventure Park. It was a great day, but very tiring. This is what some of the students had to say about their experience at camp: “Great fun!” – Chloe, “Awesome!” – Brian, “Thrilling” – Riley, “The best!” – Robert, “Excellent!’ – Tiffani, “Wicked” – Kayla.

Balaklava Primary School has strong spirit of school pride. This has been further enhanced with students in years 6 and 7 participating in Student Committees. The committees are managed by the students with support from staff members. This year the five committees have focussed on the following activities: 1) Gardens: In consultation with the Governing Council and staff the students plan and develop the gardens around the school. So far this year students have planted a significant amount of plants which have the school looking beautiful. 2) Information Technology: Students are using their IT skills to produce a professional year 7 magazine. 3) Cross-age tutoring: Students work with students from younger classes on special school projects. This has included school murals, support from reading and PE activities. 4) Promotions: This group advertises school events to the community and helps to organise school events such as Socials and Swimming Carnival. 5) Choir: The choir is renowned within the district for their singing ability. The choir performs at community events, in Adelaide and around the district. The committees run on a Tuesday afternoon. Students report back to the principal via the Student Executive in conjunction with the school captains. Students thoroughly enjoy participating in these activities and look forward to Tuesday afternoons with enthusiasm.

Focus on quality and opportunity

RIVERTON AND DISTRICT HIGH SCHOOL

BALAKLAVA HIGH SCHOOL BalaklavaHigh School provides a safe, dynamic and challenging educational environment that equips students to meet challenges of the future. A comprehensive curriculum allows students the opportunity to experience success in many fields of endeavour Curriculum diversity is highly valued by students, parents and staff at Balaklava High School. In Years 11 and 12 students are equally divided in choosing between academic and vocational pathways and through the school’s commitment to providing learning programs that genuinely meet student needs, Balaklava High School has an outstanding student retention and success rate. Students choosing a university pathway do so in the knowledge that they can study the subjects they need to gain entry to their course of choice. Small classes, quality face-to-face teaching and a supportive environment give them every opportunity to succeed. A proud tradition of successful academic achievement is a hallmark of the school with many students each year gaining outstanding Year 12 results and securing places in universities and other tertiary institutions. The vocational pathways programs are an outstanding success story and are recognised as among the best in the state. This year Emily Sanders won the Adelaide Plains VET Student of the Year Award continuing a growing history of Balaklava High School success in the

competition, with our students taking out the top award seven out of the last eight years, with Rhianna Mallon the runnerup. Students involved in the vocational program regularly train in industry, and gain formal training in TAFE and other training providers outside the school. Employers are now confident of the skills, abilities and attitudes of our Vocational students and regularly target them directly for employment. Balaklava High School is clearly a place where students have the opportunity to excel and, as a result, gain entry into a very diverse range of career options. Learning opportunities will be further enhanced by: • Completion of the new $2 million Science complex; • Completion of $1.1 million facilities and equipment development for Technical Studies andAgriculture as part of the Commonwealth Government’s Trade Training Centre Initiative; • Completion, this year of the Commonwealth Government Digital Education Revolution, which will see a total of 286 new computers provided to the school; • Provision or 12 new electronic whiteboards and; • New wireless capacity of the school. These, together with the school’s ongoing focus on quality teaching and learning, will further ensure a modern, challenging, dynamic and ICT rich learning environment for all students.

RIVERTON AND DISTRICT High School RDHS is proud of its long history and excellent academic record. In recent years over 95% of students have graduated to employment or further study after completing their studies at RDHS. A large number of students have also been successful in gaining scholarships to support their further studies.

Concept to creation

The year 10s of Riverton and District High School have had the exciting opportunity of being a part of the Concept 2 Creation (C2C) program. The students have had a semester long journey of proposing, problem solving, producing and presenting a product, which will solve a particular problem. The results of the students’ hard work will be presented at the Riverton and District High School Showcase tomorrow in Riverton Community Gym. The students started off by brainstorming ideas with the assistance of engineers and CEOs from northern Adelaide industries. These ideas were written up, considered and voted upon to decide a final seven projects.

To be appointed to a project, students wrote applications based upon their current skills and suitability for the project. The final projects ended up being Mahali – developing a phone finding device, Extinguish Life – looking at new ways to employ emergency lights, Mototech – adding Bluetooth wireless systems to a bike helmet, Custom Markers – Remote Control line marker, Tied with a Ribbon – inventing new ice cream flavours, PYM – Remote Control lawn mower, and Sweet Dreams – music and night lights for babies. The other allied programs running at the school include the Unmanned Aviation Vehicle (UAV) challenge undertaken by the Stage 1 Physics Class and the Holden Cruze Challenge

undertaken by Mr Bastian’s Year 8 Maths Class. The UAV team competed in Queensland at the end of September and came fourth in Australia and locally came second last week at the RAAF Base Edinburgh. The team had to fly a remote controlled aeroplane and drop a load as close as they could get to a target. The Year 8 Team had to construct and race a scalectric car and they came third against year 9 and 10 teams last week at the C2C Expo in Adelaide. • The RDHS Showcase runs from 5.30pm to 8pm at the school. There will be the launch of the 2010 Riversleigh Shiraz wine, a cook-your-own barbecue with steak from our award winning led steer, and a range of student work on display.

sport v Basketball

Uniforms not so uniform Everyone wants to be different. However if everyone is different then they are the same. Some of the “uniforms” being worn seem to be like this. Players are meant to be uniform with different numbers to identify them not socks or length of shorts. Scorers have a hard enough job and having to cope with lots of differences, like they did in a couple of games, makes their job even harder. One player, Dribbler tells me, had hoop socks up to his knees. It was not surprising that some one threw the ball at his legs. Each week Dribbler’s team starts off with a mad rush. The first person to get the ball dribbles furiously down the court and then chucks the ball at the ring as soon as they get guarded. As I walked around the courts it seemed like every team had the same idea. Later on in the game the same players who threw wildly settled down and smoothly zipped around defences and layed up with ease. Chris Veitch, Jayden Wedding, Jesse Shephers and Zac Zilm are all players who showed this ability. I love watching a game when players pass the ball around to create a space or a moment. Alexandra Wilson had a few moments on Friday night. One of the three pointers she put up was from a couple of metres back from the line. Not a lot of passing went on and the shot was amazing. I guess that is why they have moved the three point line back. It makes it hard though for mere mortals like Dribbler and me. It also gave them the edge over the young and improving Redlegs. Shooting well is critical for youngsters. Karl Binker of Magic has obviously being practising, so too Striker’s Thomas Michael and Emma Lane. There are still many who either need to practise or stop throwing hope goals. Dribbler reckons there were a number of goals that were amazing. Ross Sharer of Long Plains A Men and Lachlan Michael of Peckers seem to do them each week. Someone from the Avon Bulls needs to step up this week if they are going to be a threat. How about Owen in the U17 boys? Talk about shooting well. A hundred

points exactly were scored in their game against the Bulldogs with Josh Harkness and Ryan Lloyd shooting fifty between them. In the other game Titans held the top team Bullets to a draw in another game. Zachary Scholz is “the man”. It will be interesting to see what they can do against Owen this week. Long Plains, in the Under 18 Boys, are at the bottom of the ladder. They lost again this week by another close margin. Just doing a few things differently could have had them on top of the ladder. Lets hope they have the character to turn things around as dribbler thinks they have the ability. This grade is a close competition and one where character and commitment will make a difference. Dribbler reckons the Women’s Division has been a closer competition than it looks and the next four rounds will have a number of teams change position on the table. However the top team, Opals, are showing they will be the team to beat. Dribbler reckons defence is the way to go. Shut out Stacey and Brianna and the game will be yours. I don’t believe it. They have a lot of top shooters and scoring goals is what it is about. Bulldogs are a team that can score and defend. Their game this week is the match of the night. They will need plenty of stamina and discipline. Jess Angel has been scoring well of late and has the ability to shut out Bri. However it will be Teagan’s elusiveness and team play that I think can make the difference. One thing for sure it is a game worth watching. Dribbler thinks supporters could actually make it the game of the season. I’ll be there that’s for sure.

Lower North bowlers lose shield Bowls Lower North

Southern President, Don Guerin accepts the Marshman Shield from Lower North President, Peter Buckley.

President Peter Buckley, Nuriootpa, welcomes newly inducted members Helen March, Mallala, and John De Vries, Saddleworth.

Forty members of the Lower North Branch of the Bowls Past Presidents Association travelled to Port Noarlunga to defend the trophies they won the previous season, against Southern Branch, at Two Wells. The Southern Branch picked a strong side to wrest back the Marshman Trophy, and the Bolton Bowl, donated by the late Max Marshman and Eric Bolton, who were stalwarts of the competition which is played annually. Lower North President, Peter Buckley hopes that a strong side will be available to challenge Northern Branch at Snowtown on Monday December 5, 2011.

Wasleys, Owen upsets What an interesting round of matches last weekend with a smattering of close results and upsets scattered across both Divisions. Division One Wasleys continued Hamley Bridge’s woes in Division One with an upset one shot win over last season’s premiers. Rex (HB) continued his winning way as skipper accounting for McQuade (W) by six shots while Olive (W) countered with a five shot win over Donohue (HB). The remaining rink – Grady (W) vs O’Brien (HB) – had yet to finish with the final end still to play. As Grady (W) stepped up to play the final bowl of the match, Hamley Bridge was holding shot; a two shot lead overall. Grady needed to alter the head sufficiently to give Wasleys either two shots for the draw or three shots for a Wasleys’ win. Fortunes favoured Grady as he gained the necessary three shots for Wasleys to record an upset win over Hamley Bridge. Owen has a history of having tough matches against Riverton and their match last weekend was no exception. McMillan (R) had a comfortable fifteen shot win over Harkness (O) while Rogers (R) finished five shots up against Simpson (O). However, this lead of twenty shots was not enough to cover Parker’s (O) twenty two shot win over Mullins (R). Owen finished the day with a two shot win over Riverton despite having only one rink up. As some of the Owen bowlers were heard to remark later, it was their first win they could recall over Riverton at Riverton for some time. Port Wakefield gained the points against an improving Balaklava Green combination with the odd end here and there eventually swaying the match in Port Wakefield’s direction. G. McPharlin (PW) had his first loss for the season losing to Olsen (BGr) by the solitary shot; W. McPharlin (PW) – Lamond (BGr) finished a draw; and Murphy (PW) had a nine shot win over Cowan (BGr). The final match of the round saw Balaklava Gold easily account for Mallala. Division 2 Owen retained top position in Division Two after recording their

Owen the only unbeaten team in Division Two sixth win in a row at Balaklava Red’s expense. Second placed Port Wakefield Blue had a close call against an improving Hamley Red combination securing a one shot win despite having only one rink up. Reimers’ (PWB) sixteen shot win over Morris (HR) was just sufficient to counter Tily’s (HR) and Schilling’s (HR) wins over Baum (PWB) and Fontaine (PWB), respectively. Among the other leading sides – Hamley White, Riverton Black, Mallala Black and Mallala White – all secured comfortable wins over their respective opponents. Balaklava Blue was the remaining winner from last weekend. Based on present standings, the feature match in this weekend’s Division Two will see Port Wakefield Blue pitted against Mallala Black. Despite having a close call last week, Port Wakefield Blue should account for a much improved Mallala Black combination with home green advantage proving to be the deciding factor. Elsewhere, wins should be recorded by Hamley White, Riverton Black, Hamley Red and Owen with the remaining matches – Mallala White vs Tarlee White and Tarlee Red vs Port Wakefield Gold – perhaps too close to call. Please note that as Tarlee’s green is temporarily unavailable, the Tarlee Red vs Port Wakefield Gold match for this weekend will be played at Riverton instead.

Dreams shot with bike malfunction WITH a flick of a switch, Windsor sidecar racer Adam Pascoe’s shot at the world title was stripped from his grasp. Having breezed through the heats, Pascoe and teammate, Simon Cohrs, were looking in top form and threatening to take the title. The pair were the top point scorers in qualifying and also set a new track record. “We just kept on winning,” Pascoe said. “We gave ourselves first pick of the gate in the semi final and everything.” It was in the semi final, sitting in second place, when disaster struck. “I was in second and I sort of collided with the bike in front of me,” Pascoe recalled. “When I did that, it turned my fuel pump off and another half lap later, I ran out of fuel and the bike stopped and everyone went past. “Obviously that was enough to bump the cover which goes over the

switch, and it turned it off. “By the time I realised what it was, I was already in last so I turned it back on and tried to catch up but I couldn’t quite get there.” A top two finish would have qualified the team for the final. They finished third. “A switch cost me the world title,” Pascoe said. “It was really disappointing, I was shattered. “I went home without the title. “I’ve never felt so low in my life.” Despite the disappointment, Pascoe collected his thoughts and has set his focus on future races. “That’s racing though, everyone has to go through it at some stage, so you just have to battle on,” he said. “It was all going to plan, even the other competitors said ‘bad luck boys, you were the quickest on the night’, but there’s nothing you can do about it. “There’s no point crying over spilt milk, what’s done is done.

“I’m disappointed, more than anyone can believe but you can’t do anything about it. “I just have to move on to the next meeting. The next meeting, another international event, is at Mildura tonight. Pascoe will be representing the Australian team against other racers from New Zealand, England and a local team of four from Victoria. There is talk of the next world championships to be held overseas in two years’ time. Pascoe’s sponsors have already declared their support to help him get over there and have another crack. “Lucky I’m young, I’ve got plenty of years to go, I can try and win it again,” he said. Make no mistake, he will be prepared to the finest little detail. “I’m getting rid of that fuel switch, don’t worry about that,” Pascoe laughed. “I’m moving it somewhere else.”

NOTHING gets the blood pumping for Windsor speed-demon, Chris Pascoe, like sidecar racing. However, the butterflies are sure to be fluttering inside as this weekend nears, when Pascoe, paired up with Mildura teammate, Simon Cohrs, will have a tilt at the world title in the 2011 FIM Track Racing Sidecar 1000cc World Championship Final at Murray Bridge on Saturday night. The rider list and starting draw, as declared by the International Motorcycling Federation, has Pascoe listed as one of seven Australian teams on the start line. Pascoe will be taking on reigning world champion, Mick Headland. The Australians will face strong competition from some of the best track sidecar riders and passengers from New Zealand and Great Britain. It is currently the off-season for the South Australian sidecar competitors, so to compensate, Pascoe and Cohrs have ventured up for three race meets in northern Queensland last month, as well as doing some practise locally. Murray Bridge has been a successful hunting ground for Pascoe in the past. “I normally seem to do alright there,” he said. With the world title within reach,

REPORT: By Les Pearson Pascoe is pushing for a top four finish this weekend. “It is probably harder to win the Australian title than the world title,” he said. “Australians tend to be the strongest in the world at sidecar racing, so there are about eight teams out of the 16 that have a really good chance of winning it.” The top eight point scorers from the five preliminary races will decide the two semi final fields, the top two from each semi final qualify for the final. A solid finish in the world championships would cap off a solid 12 months for Pascoe, who claimed fourth

place in the Australian championships earlier this year. Sidecar racing has been in his blood since birth, Pascoe’s father, Darren, introducing him to the sport. “I guess it was a natural progression,” Pascoe said. “Just the adrenaline rush, you don’t get a bigger buzz out of anything else I reckon.” It will be a bittersweet event for Pascoe, who usually races with his brother, Adam, as the passenger. A crash earlier in the year left Adam with some serious injuries, Cohrs taking over for the Australian titles. Pascoe said Adam would still be getting around the team this weekend. “He’ll be supporting us and wants us to win it, he’s still part of the team,” he said.

balaklava Pennants

A field of 25 locals and 15 pennants visitors graced the course on a perfect spring day, with the greens in schmick condition. The Balaklava pennant team of five played Round 1 last week against Mount Pleasant at their home ground and came second 4 to 1. This week Balaklava played host to Tanunda and had a much closer match, going down in a thriller 3 to 2. All of the players have a bye next week and our boys will then play Gawler 2 at Tanunda in the final round. Good luck lads. Back to the rounds at hand, and in A Grade, we saw an obscene score of 44 points to that rapscallion Rob Lawson, who blitzed the field and told fellow golfers he’d had ‘an average game’. We wish. Shunted into second place on 41 points (with 78 off the stick) was dastardly Doug Taylor. That’s the third week in a row Dougie has beaten his age! Not bad for an old fella! Deflated by the aforementioned scores, was our Captain oh captain Merv Hamstrung Hameister with 40 points. Other A Grade scores: Craig Noble and Tate Michael 37, Ian Michael & Jim Breuer 36, Wayne Nagle 31. Peter Thorne 25. The B Graders saw the undisputed devil of disguised demeanour, Digby Ad-

Neverthless it was enough to win B Grade, with Rob Veitch taking second on the dreaded “Count Bach” with 38 points, from John Michael, Bil Berry and Rob Roy all on 38. J Hoffmann was pipped with 37, Barrie Michael and Greg Sonntag 35, Les Masson 34, Dave “I won on the 18th with a 10 or 20 metre putt” Rodgers 33, Roger Hahn and Dean Trickett 32, Geoff Leo 31, Graham Ackland 30. C Grade saw the very excited and excitable Tania Matz romp home with 39 points and a great score of 94 off the stick. Pushed down the pecking order into second was Martyn Bell with 34 points, and in third was Mike Hahesy with 31points. The other unlucky bridesmaids were Chris Hahesy 29 and Greg Anderson 25. Men please note that you need to have played your first round of the Summer Cup by November 26 so get organised. It can be played on any day at any time. And subs are now due.

OTHE REPOR P21-2

On Saturday the guys who played in what was the last game for the year were presented with a surprise performance by Hans Linford. Yes that’s right folks Hans stepped onto the first tee to claim he would take both John Ball and I apart. Well what can one say with a solid performance of one under turning the 7th . The eighth provided a slight hiccup as did the 9th but 24 points was a grand lead for Hans as he paid tribute to the fine golf displayed by John and myself. Oh course we felt humbled in such fine form to which we both agree would spurn us on to a greater back nine. The scene set for either the greatest game of the year OR stumble depending on which player you looked followed. After four holes on the back nine Hans showed no sign of slowing down despite crashing on the 13th to which John and I both ripped it up him especially when he picked up before reaching our third shots on the scrap edge. We were neck and neck with 12 pts apiece whilst John quietly went about his game and stirred Hans on with my comments on his game in any attempt to “distract him” of course

all in fun. After 15 holes Hans was sitting on 38 pts. Hmm yes even with my 28 pts the task was hard enough to catch him. John was slightly back behind me with 21 Pts but plotting revenge. Hans to his credit despite a slight hiccup kept going and only scored two points on the next three holes. I managed 6 pts to finish with a solid 19 points on the back but a long way off the pace. Hans to his credit with a solid performance knew he was being chased and I think it played on his mind somewhat as he wiped both the 16th and 18th holes. Hans has copped a fair stir during the year and which is always all in fun so full credit to him for putting up with the fun. A good way to finish off the season perhaps a sign for the 2012 season so watch out all. In closing on behalf of the committee I would like to wish all the members and families of the TWGC a safe and happy Xmas and New Year and hope to see you all early in 2012 for both the working bees and the season.

A mixed bag for the teams this round, 1st day of two day games in the A1’s & A3’s, the 1’s posting a good score with the Captain getting some runs James Vandeleur making 83, the A3’s have some work in front of them to save the match getting rolled for a low score, but then getting the opposition out for not much more, the last time this happened they got an outright so lets hope they can do the same. A great bowling effort by Matt Kooyman in the A3’s taking 4/1 off 10 overs. The A5’s got a good score but lost with a couple of

It was a sad and sorry state of affairs for David Northcott’s Shreks as they tumbled to Mary Heslop’s Incredibles 6-34 to 0-15. Having said that, three sets were close and could’ve gone the other way, so it wasn’t as bad as David first thought! David met his match against the much younger Ben Mayne, and they had two close 5-3 sets. Shreks Megan Shepherd played the incredible Mary all night, and they too had close sets including a 5-3 and a tiebreaker. Megan and partner Sue Nicholson were unlucky to lose that tie to Mary and Tanya Heslop, with all players showing great concentration. The latest INcredible Wade HUdson showed he’s still got it and gave opponent Emmalee Lomman the run around. Emmalee chased the shots down but Wade kept plugging away and took the honours there. Bec Houston’s Nemos just scraped over the line to defeat Emily Taylor’s Grinches 4-32 to 2-18. Grinches Jarek Flight and Fran Henderson started well winning long 5-3 over Nemos Keanan Catford and Bridget Guthberg, with Jarek going on to have a very long tiebreaker win with fill-in Clare Howard over lovebirds Keanan and Kylie Scott. Nemons captain Bec kept the ball rolling with three good wins making her younger opponent Emily chase many tramline shots. The last set was yet another tie with Clare and Fran unlucky to come second to Kylie and Bridget. A good game to watch. The final Div 2 match was a thriller with Diane Gregor’s Simpsons scraping through to defeat Cherie Cleary’s Flintstones 3-29 to 3-20. We welcomed Lorraine Jenner to the Simpsons for her first hit for the season, and she got a hard welcome when she tripped over her own feet and crashed backwards onto the ground. Luckily Lorraine was OK and continued on like the trooper she is. Alexandra Wilson was also playing for the Simpsons as Carolyn Mutton has joined the old crocks brigade with a pulled calf muscle, and Danielle Murphy was out partying. Lorraine and Alexandra were unlucky to lose a tie to Cherie and Peter Rohrlach, but Diane and young gun Robert McNair had a good win over Alice Parsons and ever- improving Ash Flynn to even things up. Flintys secret weapon Alice Parsons redeemed herself after the first set and had a win with Peter, and then Cherie. That gave the Flintys three sets but the Simpsons came storming home to win the other two. A close affair but not

close enough for the Flintys. There were no calculators needed to determine Pauline Hill’s Top Guns had terminated Louise Michael’s Terminators 6-36 to 0-12. All we can say is that Louise and Cherie Cmrlec featured in two 5-3 sets each, one each with team mates Chris Curnow and Jarrad Thiele, and that was it. The only other interesting things were that Cherie and Louise, and opponent Joy Ryan were all wearing pink tops, and Pauline was feeling left out so had to reveal some other pink clothing. We also won’t mention Chris and Jarrad had to reveal some of their clothing after a dak dropper loss to camera shy Adam Pratt (yeah right) and young gun Jordan Taylor, who had plenty of serving practice and very, very long rallies in his first set of the night. He begged his opponents to stop making him have such long rallies. That’s all on that match. The calculators, or Marty, were needed to triple check the scoresheet as Paul McBride’s Fugutives pipped Andrew Lane’s Bad Boys by one measly game 3-25 to 3-24. Boo hiss. Andrew and fill-in Kathryn Taylor had a good 5-3 win over Paul and Tania Allen, but the sneaky Dustin Guthberg and Lisa Redpath won an all important tiebreaker over Wally Treverton and fill-in Peter Freebairn on debut after many years off. Andrew started his set with Peter thinking he’d have to carry his partner, when he suddenly realised Peter could actually play! Andrew grinned sheepishly after they cleaned up Paul and Lisa in fairly easy fashion. Andrew teamed up with Wally to win another close set 5-3, but Fugitives Lisa and Tania only just let Peter and Kathryn save their pride and daks. Oh, the despair when they added up the scores, with the Fugitives feigning concern and understanding. The final Div 1 match saw Scott “Beam me up Scotty” McDonald’s Die Hards defeat Di Taylor’s Lethal Weapons 5-34 to 1-15. Lethals oldies Colin Mutton and Julia Hoskin proved to be a handful for their younger opponents Scotty and Leonie McRostie, giving them a lesson winning 5-3, while Die Hards Gary Wilson and Dougy Howard made fairly short work of Jason McBride, filling in for Scholzy, and Di. Scott regrouped to win his next two sets letting Colin keep his daks up - just! Di and Julia were very unlucky to lose a tiebreaker to Leonie and Dougy, who had the bodyline net tactics going. A tip for the week - The young players need to realise they should hit the ball fairly close to the older net players’ racquets so we don’t have to move very far or fast. And a good height for us to smash a winner would be appreciated too thanks. LOL

Repetition, repetition, repetition! We all know a song played on each radio station, whether it’s SAFM, Triple M, SAFM, Mix102.3, and not to mention...SAFM, that is constantly being flogged. For example, most radio stations went through the ‘Adele’ stage, when we all found ourselves humming ‘Someone like you’, without even realising it. But, whether it makes sense to us listeners or not, that is all part of the radio stations’ plan to sell the song in a method called ‘rotation’. Having slight experience in the radio industry myself, I can say from experience when a station adds a new song from aPuzzle popular or well-known artist, 3 (Easy, difficulty rating 0.38) it9 is4placed rota7 5 2 in 8 the 1 3 heavy 6 3 2 category, 6 7 1 9 which 8 4 5 starts at tion 5 or 8 more 1 6 3 spins 4 2 a 9 week, 7 20 even 7 1 9 8 6 3 4 5 2 reaching 50 spins and beyond. 8 6 2 9 4 5 7 1 3 This results in several spins 4 5 3 1 7 2 6 8 9 each 1 9 day, 8 2 meaning 5 7 3 6 a4 high level of2 repetition who 3 5 4 8 6for 9 listeners 7 1 6

To confuse you even more, songs are also categorised in their pace and mood. For example you wouldn’t want two or three slow songs in a row, and the same goes for fast-paced rock songs. Another way radio stations can be enticed to play certain songs are through persistence of record labels. Record labels such as Sony and Universal, ring up the radio stations each month to discuss adding their clients’ new songs, as this equals more revenue for the record label. But if the record label supplies the stations with clients’ albums and concert tickets, this can of course persuade the stations to add their songs. So if you’re over hearing the same song again and again, stop showing interest in particular tracks, or do what I do and become best friends with your iPod Tune in next time, ‘coz I’m Mr Brightside.

tune in for more than just a short amount of time. If the song doesn’t appear to get a big response from the audience (by song requests, voting systems and downloads), they are dropped to a lower category. A song in a light rotation is typically aired five to 15 times per week, while a medium rotation song goes over the airwaves 10 to 20 times per week. Most new songs start in the heavy rotation category, but as the song gets older it eventually gets downgraded to medium, then to light and then once the song has been flogged enough it is placed in the library. Not only do they have categories for new songs, but also 80s, 90s 00s, and individual artists and bands which are all separated in the music log, so two of the same categories or artists are not played consecutively.

DEFENCE PROOF & EXPERIMENTAL ESTABLISHMENT PORT WAKEFIELD: LIVE FIRING RANGE WARNING NOTICE Test and evaluation activities involving static firings and/or firings of naval and artillery weapons are conducted at the Proof and Experimental Establishment Port Wakefield throughout the year. The Proof and Experimental Establishment Port Wakefield is a vital Defence test and evaluation capability that has supported Defence since 1929. These firings may require specific tidal or weather conditions, and are critical for the safety of current and new Defence capabilities. Members of the public may notice noise, vibration, flashes and/or smoke during the testing. There is no risk to the public outside of the gazetted Defence Practice Areas. For reasons of public safety, there is a permanent exclusion zone covering land, sea and air around the Port Wakefield Establishment. Specific details on the Port Wakefield Prohibited Area can be obtained from Commonwealth of Australia Gazette No GN 26, 4 July 1990, and is shown on the diagram below. Trespassing in this Area is strictly prohibited and very dangerous due to the presence of unexploded bombs. Any person found within the Prohibited Area or on Defence land will be subject to prosecution. Specific test and evaluation activities may also require restricting public access to the Port Wakefield Defence Practice Areas over specific periods with these areas articulated in the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette No. GN 40, 7 October 2007, and also identified on the diagram below. This may affect access to the Gulf of St Vincent at Port Wakefield and Port Parham. If any member of the public has inquiries in relation to these activities please contact Proof & Experimental Establishment Port Wakefield – Range Control, on (08) 8867 0270 between 8.00am and 4.30pm weekdays or the Proof & Experimental Establishment Port Wakefield – Security Office, on (08) 8867 0299 outside these hours.

Division 1 Bowls Preview

Showdown at the Port REPORT: By John Glistak, WMBA secretary

This weekend’s round completes the first cycle of matches in Division One and much interest will be shown in a number of matches. Firstly, Hamley Bridge plays host to top side Port Wakefield. Hamley Bridge’s performance over the past two weeks has raised eyebrows amongst the bowling community whereas Port Wakefield has had a consistent season recording only one loss so far. In past seasons, Hamley Bridge would be favoured to win this match but with several players returning to Port Wakefield this season to strengthen their side, this is no longer the situation. Based on performances to this stage of the season, the odds favour a Port Wakefield win. Owen vs Wasleys – what an interesting match-up! Each side has had three wins for the season with Wasleys the big improvers in Division One. Both sides are coming off upset wins last week and the momentum gained from their respective wins will ensure that this match will be a very close affair; perhaps too close to call. Pressure! It will be very evident as the two Balaklava sides meet for the first time this season. Balaklava Gold has had four wins for the season whereas Balaklava Green has yet to record their first win. However, Balaklava Green’s performances against leading sides over the past two weeks will ensure that Balaklava Gold cannot count this match as an easy win. As shown in earlier matches this season, the under-dog has pulled off several unexpected wins against more fancied opponents. This match is no exception with Balaklava Green having every chance of upsetting their more favoured sister side. The final match should see Riverton return to the winners’ circle with a win over Mallala. Division One – 12 November 2011: – Owen 67(8) (T. Harkness 17, B. Parker 31, G. Simpson 19) def.
