MASSIVE GROWTH IN HICKINBOTHAM ESTATE:

THINK SHE’S ALL CLASS?

Two Wells house plan revealed

We know Brianna is!

BALAKLAVA High School graduate, Brianna Wedding, was one of four students from South Australia to attend a forum at the Thinkers in Residence Wellbeing Before Learning conference in Adelaide. The forum was held on February 27 to introduce new Thinker in Residence, Professor Martin Seligman, who is a world-renowned psychologist. Brianna was handpicked by Department of Education CEO, Keith Bartley, to take part after meeting her on a visit to the school last year. She was selected because Mr Bartley indentified her as having strong leadership qualities. Brianna said she spoke about what inspired her throughout her studies, including her mantra, picked up from a basketball teammate; ‘my belief is stronger than your doubt’.

Bec O’Brien reports: District Council of Mallala endorsed a proposed housing development plan for north of the town at its February meeting, paving the way for community consultation on the plan to begin this month. Representatives from housing developer, Hickinbotham, presented the draft plan to council’s Strategic Infrastructure and Planning Committee early last month, who then recommended to council it endorse the Development Plan Amendment (DPA) at its full council meeting. DCM chief executive officer, Charles Mansueto, said the endorsement by council of the DPA meant the 2500-home development could now progress. n Continued Page 3

Missing submission delays rate decision

A MISSING written submission has held up the District Council of Mallala’s switch to the land use rating system, with Monday night’s special meeting called off and as a result, no decision reached on the matter. DCM Dublin ward councillor, Steve Jones, was handed a signed statement from ratepayer, Pat Thompson, claiming her submission was not included in the 25 compiled public submissions to be considered by councillors at the meeting. Mrs Thompson delivered two submissions to council on the issue, one from herself and one on behalf of her neighbour. Her neighbour’s submission was in the list of documents to be considered at the special meeting but Mrs Thompson’s was not. “I got up and said I was not happy to proceed as I was not confident in making a completely informed decision,” Cr Jones said. He said mayor, Marcus Strudwicke, suggested council was aware of Mrs Thompson’s point of view, through conversations with her. Cr Jones believed any orally conveyed concerns were not appropriate when • A road network to efficiently connect the existing dealing with such a sigtown centre with the future growth area nificant issue and anything •A green belt near Sharpe Road to provide proshort of a written submistection for adjacent rural activity sion should not be con•Provision for flood prevention infrastructure sidered.

This is what the proposed 2500-home development north of the Two Wells town centre could look like in the future. Developer Hickinbotham presented this plan to District Council of Mallala last month, and council endorsed it at its February 27 meeting. Key elements include: • A local village centre in the future growth area to complement the existing main street • Entry to the expansion off Port Wakefield Road

to provide easy access and assist to keep the integrity of the main street • A potential wastewater treatment site to the north west with provision to use recycled water to irrigate parks. • Walking and cycling trails, traditional neighbourhood parks, wetlands and play spaces • Larger country lifestyle living to the east • The potential for a K-12 school with playing fields

Plan follows community advice • From Page 1 “There’s quite a formal process involved,” Mr Mansueto said. “But this is one step closer. Things are starting to happen.” Hickinbotham’s managing director, Michael Hickinbotham, said the plan was based on information gathered from the community at ‘placemaking’ workshops held in the town, as well as site investigations. “The draft plan takes into account many of the ideas and suggestions presented throughout the community engagement sessions earlier this year to make this proposed development the best it can

come in and ask questions, is very important.” Mr Mansueto said council’s Strategic Infrastructure and Planning Committee would oversee all submissions on the DPA and then make recommendations back to council. Once the community consultation process had finished, he said, the plan would be presented to Minister for Planning, John Rau, for approval, hopefully by the end of August. “If we tick all the boxes they’re asking us to, it should go through,” he said. “We’re at that point where we’re going to see some progress.”

Bec O’Brien reports: be,” Mr Hickinbotham said. “It will be a very attractive place to live for people who want highquality and sustainable housing close to metropolitan Adelaide.” Mr Mansueto said council was planning to hold a community “drop in day”, possibly on a Sunday, where residents would be encouraged to come and view the plans, ask questions and give feedback and suggestions. “It will be an important part of the process,” he said. “That inclusion of people, where they can

This was incorrect. The nomination form reads Tavia Rankin – Lochiel Hotel in the busines category but the nomination was made by Tavia’s mother, Dawn Rankin. The Plains Producer apologises for the error.

by Thinker in Residence Martin Seligman was playing an important role in identifying ways educators could make meaningful changes for South Australian children. The Wellbeing Before Learning Conference, arranged as part of the Thinkers in Residence program, presented a valuable opportunity to bring four very impressive young people together to talk about the concept of positive psychology and its practical implications for working with young people. “These young people embody my personal belief many young people possess resilience, creativity and purpose in abundance,” Mr Bartley said. “It has been my experience when we give young people more control over their lives and an opportunity to share and develop their gifts, they will almost inevitably surprise and amaze us with what they can achieve.”

RON Langdon in earlier times playing association cricket and a more recent family portrait.

R

ON Landgon was born on March 1, 1931, the second child to Arthur and Ethel Langdon of Kadina and younger brother of Dawn. The Langdon family moved to Balaklava three years later to set up the shoe cobbler business in the shop, which is now the Balaklava Fresh Foods store. They lived opposite the kindergarten, before purchasing the house on the corner of Short Terrace and Virgo Street. Ron went to Balaklava Primary and High Schools before embarking on two years at Prince Alfred College, which Ronnie admitted was a great place to improve your football and cricket skills. After school, Ron worked in the family business. He returned from an interstate trip when Arthur’s health deteriorated and he took on the business, which he changed from mainly repairs to more selling shoes. Ron courted and married Norma Jean Dunstan in 1957. They had three beautiful children, Roger, Judith and Ian. They built their home at 20 Short Terrace and later purchased the shop next door to their existing business. On their honeymoon, driving through western Victoria, dad informed mum, due to the hot weather, they had to stop at each town to let the car cool down. Invariably they stopped near a pub, where it would be a beer for dad and a lemon lime and bitters for mum. He loved buying Norma quirky Christmas presents. One year, he bought 12 cans of different varieties of baked beans. Norma passed away in 2004. I do not think any of us kids realise how good he was at sport, natural talent combined with a passion for the game, any game. We think cricket was his great sporting love, opening the innings for Balaklava with either Bob Linke or Bob Martin. He also bowled left hand off spinners, which he described as

RON LANGDON MARCH 1, 1931 – FEBRUARY 29, 2012 AN edited version of the eulogy presented by son Ian Langdon at Balaklava Sports Club on Monday

‘Well played’ Ron – a great role model slow through the air and fast off the bat but he did manage to take plenty of wickets. Ron was made a life member of the cricket club in 1981. At football, dad was a leftfooter who played at half forward. He played in three A grade premierships and was made a life member and was named in the best team of the last 50 years in 2003. He could possibly have come close to winning a Mail Medal but did admit to giving the umpires plenty of advice on occasions. Ron later played golf and had a handicap in the single figures. He was also a skipper at bowls. He played sport for the fun of it. When you were out on the field you did everything you could to win the game but when it was over, you shook your opponent’s hand and had a cold beer with them. He was involved in all the clubs he played for, mowing the town oval and the golf club fairways for years. He was also captain of the golf club and bar manager of the golf and bowls club. Dad loved a bet and worked at the Balaklava races for 40 to 50 years. He enjoyed going to the trots with his mates and would find a

two-up game on the way home. Ron used to save his $1 coins, so while on his trips to Berri and Moonta, he could play the pokies. He loved sitting in his car during the winter months, reading the paper, where friends and neighbours would come and chat. When you asked him how he was, no matter how he was feeling, he was 110 per cent or sometimes, 200 per cent. Ron was not a handyman. Our range of tools at home consisted of a lawn mower that we could not start, a hammer, which was used to hit the lawn mower, and one screwdriver, which we could never find. He was not a religious person but would never have done the wrong thing or had a bad word to say about anyone. Ron was the sort of person who thought you just went and did what was needed, not have a committee meeting about it. He never wanted anyone to fuss over him and we reckon he chose February 29 (Leap Day) to leave us so it would be four years before we could make a fuss on the anniversary of his death. Dad, you lived your life your way. You were a great role model and loving father, father-in-law and Pa and will be forever in our hearts. Ronnie, well played.

Traffic changes start THIS was the scene in Balaklava earlier this week as work started on traffic realignment at the “McCracken Corner” intersection, where five roads meet. The Department of Transport, Energy and Infrastructure (DTEI) will create a more direct alignment between Gwy terrace and Whitwarta road and include concrete islands and some island treatment to determine traffic flow and direction.

With the help of the parents and community the school ended up with 11,341 points to spend on art supplies. Julia Agnew, with her great finance skills, managed to use all but two points. • In this photo supplied by Anne Green, Tiffany Landers (standing) and Ellie Goss show off the first delivery of art supplies. The remainder of supplies will be delivered in early March. The school appreciated the support of the local community in taking the time to drop off these dockets.

MALLALA

Fun for all A comedy night, featuring the Old Fella and former Balaklava local Anthony Lamond, was held on Saturday night at the football clubrooms. The event, organised by Trish Konzag, was part of the fundraising efforts of the two Relay for Life teams. The crowd of almost 200 enjoyed an hilarious night, and also vied for auction items, including a houseboat trip. • And the “town of love” has seen a couple of engagements and weddings

of Mallala locals lately. But it was after Daniel Griffiths’ wedding at Coffin Bay that the fun really started. Daniel’s brother Nathan is apparently terrified of sharks (aren’t we all?) For a present, poor Nathan was given a shark dive! How mean. So after the wedding, Nathan decided he would “just do it.” He checked his affairs were in order, got locked in the shark-proof cage and was then lowered into the ocean. Sharks (not resembling Jaws) just swam around and didn’t even try to eat the cage. Nathan is ready to tackle his next fear but we’re not saying what that is!

WE HEARD! Keyed UP – After a few Friday night ales, a local man went to open his car with the central locking button, but it wouldn’t open. In a mild state of frustration and panic, he phoned his wife who suggested ringing the RAA for assistance. His workmate, a real know-all (or No-el), had a brainwave. Instead of the button, why not try using the key? You know, the thing that turns on the ignition? Ding ding. The man in question threw his work gear in the car, or maybe some hay gear in, and went home red-faced. Maybe we are relying too much on technology!?

Sleep. The elusive ‘land of nod’. The theoretical ‘catching of Z’s’. It comes so easily to most, and yet it’s a bone of contention for some. Master Three has a paternal disposition to sleep. With his dummy and a bear to cuddle he’d waddle off to his bed for a good relaxing snooze. Imagine my fretful state when it was time to take the dummy away? I solidly believed this would upset the applecart and had made peace with him having it into his teens. However, I was pleasantly surprised when Daddy Cool suggested Master Three give it to the post man to send to new babies, and after only a small amount of conjecture it worked!

I think I adopted the love for Nanna Naps after the birth of Miss Five. In fact, for the few years following her birth I became a ‘shift sleeper.’ My sleep for a 24 hour period was an accruement of naps rather than the solid six hours I aim for these days. Parents of newborns will identify with this. I believed the 15 minutes of henpecking you catch yourself doing while feeding counted too, it made the tally larger and somehow made me feel better. Sleep was always a contentious issue for Miss Five as a baby. I refute the cause was wind or reflux. No. I’m sure it was a carnal instinct of Miss Five’s that sleep would be seen as a sign of weakness and should be fought at all cost. …and boy did she fight! Times have changed though. Now our two little blessings sleep in longer shifts I find I am a fussy sleeper. Conditions have to be perfect for me to get my snooze on. Even a mistakenly swapped pillow can disturb my entry into the dream state. For example, my pillow should never be confused with Daddy Cool’s because of pillow abuse. Yes. Pillow abusers abound us. You know, folding the pillow over? Making pillow halos by head butting the pillow into the headboard in the night? The quality of Daddy Cool’s pillow is compromised by his need to fashion himself a little feather down hat during his sleep. No way will that do for me. The right pillow is a little rectangle of delight, and what is the perfect complement to a nice pillow? Fluffy quilts and sheets that smell of the sun. Bliss.Ah..sleep. I think I feel a nap coming on!

REAL Estate agent Nigel Christie opened Snowtown bank for inspection last Saturday, attracting interest from near and far. Mr Christie, of Hale Real Estate, declared the open day would not become a farce by charging $5 entrance fee which was donated to prostate cancer research. If you could prove you had shopped locally in Snowtown, entry was free. “We had around 80 people at the open, made up of a mixture of Snowtown, Adelaide and nearby towns people,” Nigel said. “We raised $190 for prostate cancer –

which will be donated this week.” Mr Christie said four people were “very interested” in buying the bank. Others took the chance to have a look at the site for interest. “A lot of stickybeaks,” he said as he directed people into the building. Most headed directly to the bank and its vault, where two barrels used as props in the Snowtown movie remain. Other old electronic gear also had been left by the movie producers. The manager’s residence, though run down, was large with the potential to be used as a home or bed and breakfast

residence. Port Augusta resident Sam Fitzpatrick said she had a “morbid curiosity” in the bank, having read the book and watched the movie. Graham Mountfort, of Paralowie, drove up on the day as a “last minute” decision. West Lakes resident Emma Paterson, returning from Whyalla with her daughters, stopped because she regularly drives past the town. “I think the bank could become a money spinner for the town,” she said. “It could be used as a centre to promote the region.”

First aid in schools plan gets wide spread support

It may not be long before all local students can have the chance to undertake a senior first aid course as part of their school curriculum. Australian Red Cross has welcomed a call by Federal Minister for School Education, Early Childhood and Youth, Peter Garrett, to include first aid in the school curriculum, with schools being urged to sign their pupils up to training. While some local schools have already adopted first aid courses into health subjects, all schools appear eager for an opportunity like this. Riverton and District High School principal, Glenys Munro, believes it will make students more employable. “It’s a great idea, not only is it helpful in their future careers,

Sally Crowther reports:

but also within the community. “Students spend their time going to football and netball and also going to the pool, so it would be beneficial for them to have their first aid,” Glenys said. Riverton and District High School, currently has an Activate program, where students can sign up to complete their first aid and lifeguard training. “Students who have done these courses, help at the local pool, so it benefits the community too,” Glenys said. Balaklava High School, vice principal, Kathryn Taylor, was also impressed by the idea. “It’s a fantastic idea and it would be great to get students to understand the importance

of having these skills,” Kathryn said. Balaklava High School also has the option of senior first aid for students, which is imbedded in the health subject. “Even though we offer this to students through the choice subject of health, to have this imbedded in a normal curriculum would advantage more students,” she said. The national curriculum currently stipulates four key areas of education including English, maths, science and history. Recently there has been an increased focus on health and wellbeing studies but as there are no national standards, most schools do not educate students in first aid. However it is not only local schools who are passionate about

first aid, local volunteers also believe it is vital students learn these skills. Volunteer team leader of SA Ambulance in Balaklava, Ken Cunningham, also agrees it is important. “Every person should know first aid. They need to know what to do in a situation where a person collapses or similar,” Ken said. Balaklava Red Cross secretary, Shirley Welke, thinks it is a positive idea. “It would be a good idea and give the chance for kids to get involved in the local community by utilising these skills,” Shirley said.

ORDS cannot describe the atrocities he has seen, the despair he felt and the anguish suffered from years of continued abuse his people were subject to at the hands of their fellow countrymen. Yet, there was not a wrinkle of worry on his face, his eyes; bright and full of life and his smile; wide and welcoming. Retired Ugandan Bishop, Nelson Onono-Onweng, had every right to lose faith in humanity following the brutal 2004 massacre at the hands of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). The LRA is a religious extremist group, which is known for the extreme atrocities they commit against civilians, including killings and mutilations. His village of Lukodi was one of thousands where locals were subject to indescribable torture and rampant murder. People fled to the nearest major city, Gulu, in search of protection. It was during this time of rebuilding, Bishop Onono risked his life to meet with the LRA leader, to talk peace with a man who had led the destruction and devastation of innocent civilians. After four years, the Lukodi community steadily began to filter back to their respective villages. Still today, the rebuilding work continues in an attempt to return to life as normal. Bishop Onono and his wife, Brenda, toured the region last week to visit Owen couple, David and Joy Woodroofe, who have been regular visitors to Lukodi. The African couple were dropping in on several Australians, who through the charity Bright Futures, have assisted with the rebuilding of their community since the LRA massacre. Mr Woodroofe said given the Lukodi community relies heavily on farming for food and income, a visit to Ian and Peter Freebairn’s farm was an eye-opening experience for Bishop Onono. “He thought it was such a thrill,” Mr Woodroofe said. Bishop Onono took particular interest in the grain storage systems, such as silos, with Lukodi locals struggling to keep track of how much of their produce they can sell and how much they need to keep for eating. He said the community had a similar

T NEWSfeature Les Pearson central storage system but following the massacre, people began to store food in their own homes to prevent theft. That system was long-forgotten as residents lived with caution in their minds and fear in their hearts. It has since led to people selling too much grain and leaving themselves little to eat. “I wish we maintained that system, it was a good thing,” Bishop Onono said. The storage issue is just one of a raft of hurdles the Bishop and his community face in rebuilding society. Sanitation and early childhood education is also a focus. “We could save so many children from zero to five years of age by improving sanitation,” Bishop Onono said. “A nursery school in the village would be a number one priority.” Education is starting to become a priority for the youth in the community, who are susceptible to losing interest early on in high school, while young people are also encouraged to learn a trade at vocational training centres. “If we can give them some practical skills, they can then become productive citizens,” Bishop Onono said. Having won multiple international peace awards, he has high hopes the worst is now behind the people of northern Uganda as they continue the rebuilding process. “People have suffered for 23 years, I don’t think they can or will accept war ever coming back here again,” Bishop Onono said. Bishop Onono also spoke at several churches in his visit, including a special presentation at Owen on Friday night. Even if religion is not your thing, he preaches a message worth listening to – a message of peace. It’s a mantra that has kept the 67-year-old looking younger, albeit with all the wisdom, that his age suggests.

Crop seminar’s timely advice

Grain growers will have the opportunity to hear the latest agronomy, crop trial management, and market information in preparation for the forthcoming growing season at a free seminar in Clare on Wednesday, March 14. The Hart Field-Site Group’s successful Getting The Crop In seminar is on again at The Valleys Lifestyle Centre, Clare, and thanks to sponsorship from Rabobank, farmers can attend the seminar free of charge, kicking off with a hearty breakfast at 8am. Keynote speaker for this year’s event is Wimmera farmer David Jochinke. Living at Murra Warra – meaning Place With No Water – 30 kilometres north of Horsham, Mr Jochinke has extensive experience in dryland farming on his 2000 hectare property. As immediate past Victorian Farmers Federation treasurer, a Nuffield Scholar and Australian Rural Leadership Foundation participant, he is also well placed to give an insight into his perspective of where Australia fits into global agriculture in the mid and long term. Canola is generating significant interest this season given its current gross margins, and Struanbased SARDI senior research officer Trent Potter will give an update on varieties and agronomy. He will speak about black leg disease in canola and the work being done to minimise the disease as well as potential new fungicides being released this year. • The seminar will be held next Wednesday, March 14, at The Valleys Lifestyle Centre, Clare, from 8am-–1pm.

NEWS v District

Rubbish ‘hit squad’ fights back Les Pearson reports: THE Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) has launched a new tactical team to combat continued illegal dumping in rural areas, a growing problem across the state, particularly along the coastline north of Adelaide. Areas such as Middle Beach and Parham are regularly exploited, with District Council of Mallala waging an expensive and constant battle against illegal dumpers. “The northern coastal strip continues to be a problem area for illegal dumping, as do many isolated country roads,” an EPA spokesperson said. “The incidence of illegal dumping is increasing across both metropolitan and country SA.” The Illegal Dumping Unit (IDU) was unveiled earlier this year. It is part of the EPA Investigations Unit and made up of a team leader, two investigators and three environment protection officers. There are also two dedicated waste levy audit officers. The IDU is primarily concerned with the illegal production, transport, stockpiling and disposal of commercial quantities of construction and demolition waste, hazardous wastes, including asbestos and dangerous chemicals, and industrial waste. The EPA said the dumping of these wastes illegally can cause environmental harm and presents a danger to the public. “While ‘car boot’ dumping remains the responsibility of local councils, the IDU will provide

Dumped rubbish at Parham.

THE EPA operates a pollution hotline. People are encouraged to report illegal dumping activity through this. “We are interested in suspicious vehicles, especially tippers that are seen in remote areas where dumping has occurred,” the spokesperson said.

“All complaints are protected and kept confidential.” The EPA also encourage people to use waste removal services to ask where the waste will be taken and how much of their cost is made up of dumping fees. “If a quote for work appears too cheap, there is a distinct possibility that the operator is not dumping the waste appropriately,” the spokesperson said. “Landholders are encouraged to keep gates locked, erect barriers to prevent vehicle access where possible. “Do not accept waste fill onto your property without checking where it has come from, ensuring all council and EPA approvals are gained where necessary.”

When dumping happens on private land the costs of clean up fall to the landowner if an offender cannot be found and costs recovered

assistance in the form of training, surveillance and the possibility of hot spot campaigns to councils,” the spokesperson said. The IDU is also clamping down on the sale of illegal fill, becoming increasingly common in the waste industry. “There have been many instances

where landholders have been convinced by illegal operators to accept ‘clean fill’,” the EPA spokesperson said. “The situation can very quickly get out of hand and the land holders find all manner of waste being dumped on their site. “The responsibility for the clean

EPA warning on suspected Balaklava contamination

THE Environmental Protection Authority has been notified of on-site soil and groundwater contamination on a property on Port Wakefield road, Balaklava. The property, at Lot 91, is a former Mobil fuel depot. “The contamination is a result of historic activities undertaken on the site and on-site investigations to date have identified impacts to soil and groundwater in the form of petroleum hydrocarbons and lead,” an EPA spokesperson said. “Environmental investigations are ongoing, with potential risks to on and offsite users to be assessed.” Bore water users in the area were encouraged to be vigilant. “The land surrounding the site is residential and whilst there are no known registered bores within 500 metres of the site, the EPA and SA Health further confirm previous advice that bore owners should not be using bore water unless it is regularly tested to ensure it is fit for purpose,” the spokesperson said. The information has been placed on the EPA Public Register and is also available on the EPA website via the EPA Public Register Index.

up of this waste, if found to be contrary to the Environment Protection Act, may fall to the landholder and these costs can be in the many thousands of dollars.” A recent incident landed a local with a hefty bill. “In one instance, a Middle Beach farmer paid about $60,000

to process and remove waste that had been accepted onto his land,” the spokesperson said. “He was also convicted in the Environment, Resources and Development Court for operating an illegal waste/recycling depot.” Practises like this continue to cost the industry’s fair players. “Illegal operators undermine legitimate operators by being able to undercut legitimate operators through avoided licence and waste levy fees,” the EPA spokesperson said. “Waste diverted to illegal dumps from legitimate operators costs the waste industry important business, undermining the industry’s investment in proper waste management. “Further to those costs, is the lost waste levy ($35 per tonne) and the lost amenity value of an area being used as an illegal dump. State agencies like National Parks and Forestry SA also have to clean up illegally dumped waste. “When dumping happens on private land the costs of clean up fall to the landowner if an offender cannot be found and costs recovered,” the spokesperson added. The EPA encouraged people to ask questions before accepting fill. “Visit the EPA website where the Waste to Fill Guideline is highlighted and obtain information such as the Waste Fill Criteria,” the spokesperson suggested. “There are also publications on our website for persons wanting to re-use waste. If in doubt contact the EPA and ask.” In some instances, development approval will be required from council before waste fill can be used.

Skate park grant rejected It was a major blow for Snowtown skate park committee members when they found they had been unsuccessful in the recent round of Sport and Recreation grants from the South Australian government. With 190 applicants, Bernie Keech, a member of the committee, was hopeful the $50,000 grant application would be successful. “It was very disappointing, but we will have to be patient and keep trying” Bernie said. It is expected the skate park will cost $120,000. So far the committee has raised $30,000 with Wakefield Regional Council expected to donate $30,000.

Crunch time for cucumber kids

Excited children from Two Wells Community Children’s Centre picked their first “homegrown” cucumber late last month, and relished cutting it up and of course eating it. The vegetable garden is a result of seedlings planted last year in raised garden beds, with funding from the Department of Education and Children’s Services’ Healthy Eating and Physical Activity program. The children are looking forward to picking and trying more fruit and vegetables from their garden in coming weeks. TASTE test by Sam Leak and Will Gow.

abnormal snow melt. In 1867, a one-in-90 year flood of the Murrumbidgee River severely affected Albury and Echuca. The first officially recorded River Murray flood was at Morgan in 1870 – it peaked at 11 metres, washing away homesteads at Craignook and Murbko. Other high river readings were in 1890, 1917, 1931 and 1952. The 1955 peak of 8.3m at Morgan pre-empted the 1956 flood when the level reached 12.3m, breached all levees and was the highest flood level recorded since white settlement. Some believe it was only the ‘locks’ that made it higher than the 1870 flood. The 1956 flood is considered to be the greatest natural catastrophe in South Australia’s history. Today much of the water flow is “controlled” by upstream usage, dams and locks.

was halted, pastoralists tried in vain to move their stock to distant regions offering better pastures, and camels took over much of the carrying work. Indeed, it was the camels that “saved” outback Australia. The River Murray is South Australia’s lifeline but, in its natural state, the Murray was quite different from the present day regulated river. During severe droughts it was sometimes reduced to a chain of waterholes which made the river too unreliable to enable intense settlement along its banks. I know of reports from the 191115 drought when the river was so severely affected near places like Swan Reach that it was possible to literally walk across the river. Then there are the floods – generally speaking, flooding in the Murray is caused by climatic events upstream from South Australia, eg.

Some of the longest drought periods recorded in South Australia were 1884-86, 1895-1898; 1901-03; 1911-1915; 1927-29; and 1943-46.

Heritage Highlights

Australia is a vast land with many and varied natural features – as Dorothea Mackellar put it, a land of sweeping plains, of ragged mountain ranges, of droughts and flooding rains. Droughts are generally long periods of abnormally dry weather. In South Australia prior to the 1860s, droughts were barely noticed because most settlers lived in areas of more reliable rainfall – it was really only the pastoralists who had ventured further afield who felt the effects of drought in the early days of settlement. The severe drought of 1864-65 led to the drawing of Goyder’s “line of rainfall”, a line that separated the agriculturally viable land from that fit for pasture only. While Goyder has long been proven right, many farmers of the day did not believe him, accusing him of favouring his pastoralist “friends” and not want-

NEWS v Hamley Bridge

Uni team helps Hamley plan

RESIDENTS are briefed on the Hamley Bridge concept by architect and university course director, Dr Susan Shannon. HAMLEY Bridge will be the subject of a major project for Adelaide University Master of Planning and Urban Design students, which will ultimately shape future development of the town. Wakefield Regional Council approached the university earlier this year to help formulate a township concept design. WRC acting chief executive officer, Geoff Sheridan, said given the proposed residential Development Plan Amendment that could provide for the development of up to 400 new houses earmarked for the town in coming years, a township concept design is a proactive and prudent step. He said the study will incorporate the social, community, economic and sustainability issues facing Hamley Bridge and will help guide developers and other government departments on several levels, including infrastructure demands, various utility requirements and transport logistics. The project will cost about $15,000. Mr Sheridan said if council were to employ a consultancy firm to do something similar, it would be looking at a figure of up to $50,000 and with limited funds available, utilising the university was a practical and feasible option. He said despite the project being a study

NEWTON Lines makes a point. project for students, the township concept design will be treated as a professionally produced plan, as they will be guided by some of the best town planners and urban designers South Australia has to offer. These include experienced architect and course director, Dr Susan Shannon, planner and urban designer, Rick Atkinson, and main street rejuvenation expert, Natalya Boujenko.

In his experience, Mr Sheridan said other councils utilised university students to do similar township concept design work with great results. “Light Regional Council did one with Kapunda a few years ago,” he said. “About 70 per cent of the plans provided by the students were adopted in various shapes and forms around the town.” The opportunity to get out of the lecture theatre and into the real world is also of benefit to students. “Its an extremely valuable exercise, proving practical experience,” Mr Sheridan said. During this time, students will be working and speaking with interested stakeholders, local residents and council. A briefing was held in Hamley Bridge on Thursday for residents to convey their thoughts and ideas to both Mrs Shannon and Mr Atkinson and help provide a direction for the project. Students will spend a day in the town on April 3, providing locals with another opportunity to meet and discuss their ideas about future development in the town. The date is to be confirmed in the near RETIRED farmer Gavin Cain gives town future. Mr Sheridan encouraged any inter- background. Hamley Bridge CMC chair, ested residents to attend. John Povey, front, listens.

Resident advice on future town issues

THE future of the Hamley Bridge township is in good hands according to Wakefield Regional Council Southern ward councillor, Barry Smith (pictured). About 15 residents attended Adelaide University’s first briefing for the Urban Design Study of the town held at the spots and recreation centre on Thursday. WRC has engaged the university and students studying a Master of Planning and Urban Design to develop a Hamley Bridge township concept design. Cr Smith said despite the late notice, the meeting drew a number of locals who raised a range of issues and ideas for the project. “It was great,” he said. “A lot of positive stuff came out of it.” The thoughts were collated and will be

presented at the next meeting. Cr Smith said the briefing was an excellent platform for residents to present their views on the future of Hamley Bridge. He said it was a perfect opportunity to listen to views from community members he seldom hears from

on such issues. “Just to get them out there was good but it was great to hear those thoughts,” Cr Smith said. “It allowed the lecturers to get a feel of what the town is all about.” Of those in attendance, he believed every-

one spoke at some stage during the meeting. “The two lecturers there were also excellent at getting people to open up,” Cr Smith said. In Cr Smith’s mind, it was important residents submitted opinions which were recorded. “It won’t happen overnight but if it is jotted down, it can happen down the track,” he said. With the town on the verge of a proposed 400-allotment development over the next 10 years, Gemtree Property managing director, Simon Cross, also attended the briefing. Cr Smith said Mr Cross was impressed by what was said at Thurday’s meeting. “He (Mr Cross) said it was fantastic and would come to the next one,” he said. Having been notified of the university’s intentions of holding the briefing on the Friday,

only six days before Thursday afternoon’s briefing, Cr Smith frantically spread the word to various community groups. The late notice was not ideal but he was thrilled with the cross-section of community groups who attended.Cr Smith said the township concept design also provides a clear direction for future town progression, providing a statement to various government departments of where Hamley Bridge is going. He said it could play an important role when looking to secure funding assistance. Overall, Cr Smith was extremely impressed with both the way the meeting was run and the response from the community and along with WRC acting chief executive officer, Geoff Sheridan, encouraged locals to attend the next session, to be held in early April.

Dog and land use changes coming District Council of Mallala passed two local bylaws at its February 27 meeting. DCM chief executive officer, Charles Mansueto said council had been working on a local government land use bylaw as well as a dog bylaw, with council approving both last month. The new dog bylaw is set to restrict homes in the town to three dogs, up from previous recommendations of only two dogs, with homes in the Rural Living Zone also limited to three dogs. People living in the Animal Husbandry Zone are permitted to have up to nine dogs. Any property not in one of these zones, or in the town, may have up to five dogs. “This is trying to recognise some people have working dogs on a farm,” Mr Manseuto said.

n MALLALA COUNCIL The council’s new local government land use bylaw gives a clearer picture of what people can and can’t do on council land and if they need to apply for permission to do so. It also gives council more weight to enforce it. “This gives us the authority to manage the use of local government land,” Mr Mansueto said. Both bylaws will now go to community consultation, with any submissions to be considered by council in coming months.

Lewiston study

District Council of Mallala’s Lewiston Open Space Community Study will not officially begin until the new financial year,

Plains Producer, Wednesday March 7, 2012

as funding for the project still is being sought – but residents are encouraged to write in with any suggestions for the area. CEO Charles Mansueto said funding for the project was in the process of being finalised, with council set to include it in next financial year’s budget. “Council sees it as a priority for the upcoming budget,” he said. “People can still provide feedback about the study. It’s not going to be lost. “We can keep that feedback on file and include it in the study when it is going.” Mr Mansueto said he believed council would support the study, saying it was much needed. He hoped grants could be obtained to help fund it.

THE Old Fella looks relaxed as he tells a yarn.

Mallala’s Relay for Life Team raised about $17,000 simply by making people happy. The big cash fundraiser was organised by Mallala’s two teams of 25 women who will take part in the Gawler Relay for Life event at Princes Park on Saturday and Sunday, March 24-25. About 190 people attended a “comedy night” and auction at Mallala football clubrooms last Saturday night, where the “Old Fella” Rod Gregory had the crowd laughing, with help from fellow comedians, Balaklava’s Anthony Lamond and Steve Copley A houseboat holiday raised just over $3,000 at the auction. The relay teams will take part in a survivor and carer walk on the Saturday and there will be a candlelight ceremony at dusk to remember those who have lost their battle with cancer. Each of the teams will be walking as a relay, dressed as witches and carrying broomsticks, (the theme on Saturday night) until 9am on the Sunday morning. All proceeds from their fundraising goes the Cancer Council of SA.

Choir helps Lions Adelaide Plains Male Voice Choir presented a concert last Sunday at Saddleworth Hall in aid of Lions Club projects. Items were introduced by MC Malcolm Wilson, with Darrell Schutz as choirmaster. Newly appointed accompanist, Melanie Redden, (right) of Balaklava, accompanied the choir, proving a very competent replacement for Marjorie Lush, who had filled the role for 17 years. Chris Maloney, of Watervale, gave several of his popular elocutionary items, while Kim van Dokkum, (below) accompanied by his wife, Brenda, performed with his harmonicas. Proceeds from the concert will go to Lions Club Projects, which this year include outside blinds at the Gilbert Valley Senior Citizen Homes as well as regular Lions International projects. Thanks and presentations to the artists were made by Lion John Tayler on behalf of the club. Choirmaster Darrell Schutz invited any men to attend practices if they were interested in joining. He can be contacted on 8522 2634.

SPORT v Balaklava Triathlon

Survival of the fittest Inaugural Balaklava triathlon a success • From back page Most of the competitors were locals, although some entrants with local connections came from Adelaide and Murray Bridge. Without final figures to work with, Mr McBride believed the club would have raised $1200 from running the event, which included takings from its food and drink catering. With ideal weather and positive feedback from competitors, the club is keen to expand the fundraiser for 2013. “I would be 99 per cent sure we would be ramping it up and doing it again next year,” Mr McBride said. One suggestion to ponder was to introduce a longer course for the team event. “It’s something we can think about for the next one,” Mr McBride said.

SPORT v Bowls

Who will grab the double chance? • From back page These results lead to an interesting situation where, the double chance in Division One will be determined by which side – Port Wakefield or Hamley Bridge – wins their match on Saturday. In previous encounters, Port Wakefield won both matches by six and 21 shots, respectively. For Hamley Bridge to finish second, however, only a 10-2 victory, or better, over Port Wakefield will suffice. Balaklava Gold plays sister side Balaklava Green in a match that has no bearing on the final standings. Having won their two previous matches against Balaklava Green, Balaklava Gold is likely to chalk up another win here. Owen and Wasleys will both conclude their season this Saturday,

REPORT: John Glistak with both sides keen to finish with the upper hand as each side has had a victory against the other during the season. The last match of the round will see Mallala face Riverton. While Mallala cannot make the finals, Riverton is guaranteed fourth spot at least, perhaps third should they defeat Mallala, and Hamley Bridge lose their match. Another factor that may have an effect on bowls this weekend is the Prestige Medley. Some sides will have key players unavailable. Results – March 3: Riverton 87(10) (B Mullins 23, N Rogers 38, M Griffiths 26) def Owen 65(2) (T Harkness 26, N Harkness 21, B

Parker 18); Balaklava Gold 77(12) (T Clifford 21, P Thompson 22, B Taylor 34) def Mallala 57(0) (P Furst 16, K Roberts 21, B Smith 20); Port Wakefield 78(12) (G McPharlin 28, R Murphy 22, W McPharlin 28) def Balaklava Green 46(0) (C Cowan 8, D Lamond 18, M Olsen 20); Hamley Bridge 81(12) (B Smith 34, A O’Brien 24, P Rex 23) def Wasleys 42(0) (T Sparks 12, S Nicolai 17, D Olive 13). Standings: Balaklava Gold 161 (+220), Port Wakefield 147 (+147), Hamley Bridge 140 (+103), Riverton 137 (+174), Owen 95 (-63), Mallala 94 (-19), Wasleys 77 (-229), Balaklava Green 59 (-325). Fixtures, March 10: Owen vs Wasleys, Balaklava Green vs Balaklava Gold, Mallala vs Riverton, Hamley Bridge vs Port Wakefield.

n phil Kosonen, Wasleys sends one down.

Last weekend’s Division Two results ensure the upcoming final round will be one of immense interest, as the prospects of a number of sides hinge on the results of certain matches. So, what happened last Saturday? Port Wakefield Blue easily accounted for second placed Hamley White to the tune of 48 shots, while third placed Owen defeated fourth placed Mallala White by 19 shots. Mallala White’s loss, coupled with Hamley Red’s 46 shot win over Tarlee White has seen Hamley Red replace Mallala White in the four. Hamley Red’s win also put to an end Riverton White’s finals aspirations, despite Riverton White’s

49 shot victory over sister side, Riverton Black. Going into the final round, therefore, both the double chance and fourth spot are still up for grabs. Hamley White and Owen remain in contention for the double chance, with Hamley White sitting only three points ahead of Owen. Riverton Black hosts Hamley White in one match, while Port Wakefield Blue hosts Owen in the other match that may affect which side gets the double chance. For Owen to finish second, it must defeat Port Wakefield Blue for the third time this season and hope that Riverton Black can upset Hamley White. However, Hamley White has won both of its previous matches against

Division three finalists set Mallala Black, Port Wakefield Gold and Tarlee Red are now confirmed Division Three finalists following last weekend’s results. Balaklava Blue is virtually assured of a final’s spot but should results go a certain way in the final round, its sister side Balaklava Red could finish fourth instead. Last weekend, leaders Mallala Black had a comfortable 25 shot victory over Balaklava Red, while Tarlee Red’s 15 shot win over Port Wakefield Gold has ensured the fight for the double chance is still not over. The final match saw Balaklava Blue gain a 15 shot win over Wasleys. After last Saturday’s results, Port Wakefield Gold, Tarlee Red and Balaklava Blue still remain in contention for second spot. The results of the Balaklava Red vs Tarlee Red and the Port Wakefield Gold vs Balaklava Blue matches will clarify the situation. Should Tarlee Red lose its

n Balaklava Blue’s Ken Harkness signals to his teammate in Division Two.

match, Port Wakefield Gold will finish second with any win while Balaklava Blue needs a 12-0 win. However, if Tarlee Red wins and Port Wakefield Gold loses, then Tarlee Red will finish second. If both Tarlee Red and Port Wakefield Gold win, then it may depend on the actual match scores in the respective matches to see which side gets the double chance. Mallala Black will finish its

minor round with a win against Wasleys. An interesting round of matches with much at stake for a number of sides in this Division. Results – March 3: Tarlee Red 75(10) (D Meyers 17, F Gorey 35, I Rohde 23) def Port Wakefield Gold 60(2) (K Anderson 23, A Brown 24, A Carslake 13); Mallala Black 92(10) (J Evans 25, K McDonald 48, M Secomb 18) def Balaklava Red 67(2) (T Jones 21, L Day 12, C Milton 34); Balaklava Blue 77(10) (P McPharlin 19, K Harkness 31, C Stewart 27) def Wasleys 62(2) (J Williamson 25, J McDonald 20, T Prior 17). Standings: Mallala Black 116 (+81), Port Wakefield Gold 100 (-28), Tarlee Red 98 (-103), Balaklava Blue 91 (-140), Balaklava Red 81 (-255), Wasleys 59 (-323.75). March 10 fixtures: Balaklava Red vs Tarlee Red, Port Wakefield Gold vs Balaklava Blue, Wasleys vs Mallala Black.

Riverton Black, suggesting the likelihood of an upset is somewhat remote. Only three points separate Hamley Red and Mallala White; which of these two sides will finally take fourth spot? Hamley Red plays Riverton White, with each side having recorded a win against the other side. Riverton White’s recent performances have been solid, suggesting the result of this match may be much closer than the last time they met. On the other hand, Mallala White hosts Tarlee White, a side that has proved to be a bogey side for them this season. Can Mallala White win on this occasion and snatch fourth spot away from Hamley Red? Results – March 3: Hamley Red 94(12) (G Schilling 34, B Morris 29, L Stott 31) def Tarlee White 48(0) (P Dunn 17. J Perry 19, D Lowry 12); Riverton White 94(10) (J Glistak 40, G Giles 22, R Hannaford 32) def Riverton Black 47(2) (P Kelly 11, R Schulz 24, P Koster 12); Owen 72(9) (P Sullivan 38, L Hean 16, R Uppill 18) def Mallala White 53(3) (J Curnow 14, M Dunstan 21, M King 18); Port Wakefield Blue 91(12) (S Reimers 28, T Cluse 33, P Baum 30) def Hamley White 43(0) (J Bell 15, A Fyfe 14, N Fyfe 14). Standings: Port Wakefield Blue 180 (+384), Hamley White 153 (+165), Owen 150 (+175), Hamley Red 132 (+107), Mallala White 129 (+5), Riverton White 118 (+124.75), Tarlee White 104 (-107), Riverton Black 89 (-86).

SPORT v Basketball

Big weekend of basketball! Good sports can often be hard to find. This is because people like Dribbler and myself often look only at the results. We see the players who score the points and the players who demonstrate high skill. What we often miss are the characteristics that make up the good sport. The commitment to the team, the attendance at practise, the encouragement and support of others and the important characteristic of showing respect to their coaches and the umpires. Dribbler tells me that after the game, two players went and shook hands with the umpires. I have seen this before. I have also seen players who stand under the basket withstanding uncalled fouls and pass off to others who then score. I have seen players guard hard and run to good position only to be ignored.

Friday Night Lights ADELAIDE PLAINS BASKETBALL REPORT By Three Points

These players are the good sports. They enjoy the game and make it happen for others. At the risk of leaving many out, Dribbler has named some from the senior competition. Dribbler has noticed in the women, Alison Schahinger, Jane Harding, Hannah Hoepner and Tess Lawson. In the men, Ryan McPharlin, James Rundle, Kieren Robinson and Gib Palmer. Look out for others – and tell them. Two players of great skill and ability who I think are also good sports would be Travis Olsen

n tenayah Renshaw, Celtics dribbles around Puma Amy Jordan in the Women’s Division B game, while Pauline Florence defends.

and Brianna Wedding. They were both awesome on Friday night and a pleasure to watch. I think they are great role models and hopefully, when they get the time, they can pass on some of their qualities to some of our youngsters. Dribbler reckons Michael Clifford is doing this already, who, having learned much in town, is back teaching others. Leigh Wright and Kerri Blackwell would be two others. Dribbler noticed that twins scored the same points in the Pumas game. We’ll leave you to find out who they were. One of them went the extra mile and helped out with umpiring after her game. One of things that excites Dribbler and Thomas Lane is not defence, but high scores. The Under 18 boys had some high scores and gave excitement to many. Zac Zilm managed at least one three pointer, while Jayden Wedding burnt a track down the court with his layups. Chris Veitch put in a couple of unbeleivable layups, making me think it must be easy. Ciara Guy was another to make it look easy and single handedly scored more than the opposition. Thomas Michael in the Under 12 scored exactly the same as their opponents. Dribbler reckons he must practise a lot as he seems to know just what to do to get a shot to drop. This Friday is the end of the minor round and for some, their last game for the season. I hear it will be a big weekend for others as they represent our association in Adelaide at the Country Championships. I can’t wait. See you there!

Eagerness to see the effects of nearly an inch of rainfall on the greensward drew no less than 33 dare-devils to the course last Saturday for a “Tiger Tees” Stroke competition, as well as the much anticipated grand finale of the Summer Cup. However, we must settle for a simple breviate, what with space and time at a premium and report that Gunner Wayne “The Farnarkler” Nagle, with figures of 81/69, rent the A Graders asunder. Wild Bill Goudie (89/74) invalidated Ian Michael’s best efforts (83/74) on a count back. Thereafter, consigned to the Club’s ossuary, were G. McKenzie (89/75), D. Hannaford (83/75), M. Hameister (85/76), W. Berry (94/78), T. Michael (88/78), R. Lawson (88/78), C. Michael (89/78), R. Hahn (93/78), D. Taylor (90/80), G. Spence (95/80), Ben Michael (97/82) and M. Smith (99/84). Jimmie Breuer recorded a backpain inspired DNF. Over in the B Grade ranks Greg Sonntag (100/77) gagged Dennis Goudie (100/77) on a count back, who in turn used the good Count to jostle John Michael (100/77) into third place while Barrie Michael (98/77) was just unlucky. Hiding in the shrubbery were R. Veitch (100/80), Bev. Hannaford (101/81), D. Rodgers (100/82), A. Leaver (102/84) and A. Henstridge (104/84). The promised new force to emerge from the C Grade came in the tall, laconic form of Peter Freidrichs (105/74), while the less tall Tanya Matz (100/75) claimed a very creditable 2nd. place and the mighty Martin Bell (111/78) cleaned up 3rd. This left us with M. Keast (114/87), G. Anderson (116/89) and M. Smith (122/90). The monthly Putting comp. was creamed by the phantom Farnarkler who needed just 22 of ‘em, while Birdies were achieved by Callum Michael at the third and Merv. Hameister at the 10th. Nearest The Pins were claimed by Callum Michael (3rd), Geoff Spence (8th), Doug Taylor (10th), Bill Goudie (13th) and Austin Henstridge at the 15th. So, Wayne Nagle got the full 6 ‘Golfer of the Summer’ points, Bill Goudie 5, Peter Freidrichs 4, Ian Michael

3, Greg Sonntag 2 and all who ran the full journey, 1 each. Earlier, Rampaging Rob Lawson finished his Brown Windsor soup, dabbed his lips with a double dimisk dinner dimpkin, adjusted his vrai basque to an even more rakish angle and strolled to the first tee. This air of total confidence and fine breeding enabled Rob to thwart a very determined super Scouser, Bill Berry and so secure the Summer Cup Grand Final 3/2. This weekend yet another Stableford (played from the white markers I hear), under starter Scott “Skiffle Rules!” Michael while on a far more sober note, our glorious President Bill Lokan will ease your pains at the 19th.

Last Thursday’s stableford event attracted 26 players, with long time member Wim Van pelt winning the day with 39 points from Bob Charman 37, and Ed Manning taking third spot from Doug Cooper on a countback, both with 36 points. Other players to make the cut were Barry Schwartz and Stephanie Martin 35 Warren Isgar, Roen Cameron, Wim Van Pelt and John Riley 34, Ian Ferguson 33, Brian Cooper and Ian Rohde 32. Nearest to The Pins: Wim Van pelt 9th, Roger Hahn 12th, Wim Van Pelt 4th. There was only one Birdie for the day; Wim Van Pelt 4th. We dont know if it has happened before, but in a field of 20 players, a woman has won what was once known as the men’s competition! Helen Johnson – who was many times State Country Tennis Champion and decided to try her hand at golf a few years a ago – won Saturday’s Stableford event with 40 points. Helen, who is a member of the Two Wells and Hamley Bridge golf clubs, works hard at her game and is certainly reaping the benefits. Second spot on the podium was taken by veteran, Kieth Kluske from club champion, John Mitchell who just managed to pinch third spot from “serial tournement winner” George Dahlitz, Vince Zito and Doug Cooper on a count back with 38 points. Others to make the cut were Barry Scwhartz and Dennis Nation 36, Wally Jackson and Roland Pawlak 35, Rowan Cameron and Warren Isgar 34. NTP: Roland Pawlak 9th. Birdies: Warren Isgar 6th, Roland Pawlak 1.

Lower North in grand final

n thomas Tiller prepares to bowl for Mallala at junior cricket on Saturday.

LOWER North’s bowlers decimated the Clare Combined batting line-up in Saturday’s second semi final at Long Plains and booked a spot in the Stanley Cricket Association A grade grand final on March 17. Clare Combined opener, Ben Seymon, drove Matt Higgs’ first ball of the innings through the covers for two runs but that was as good as things got for Clare. Higgs had Seymon caught behind the next ball and fellow opener, Matt Vandeleur, was run out for a diamond duck the following delivery, having not faced a ball. The great start continued when Ryan Darling had Matt Stopp caught by Brad Jones at mid-off and when

Unlucky exit for Long Plains

Les Pearson previews Stanley Cricket Association semi finals Darling scattered Matt Bennie’s stumps, Clare were in deep trouble at 4 for 7. That became 5 for 7 when Higgs found the edge of Scott Stedall’s bat, caught by Darling at first slip and one run later, Greg Colbert was caught behind, again off Higgs, Clare Combined now 6 for 8. Rob Calaby was then deceived by Darling, offering a return catch for the bowler and Clare had crumbled to 7 for 10.

n charlie Baker bowls for the Mallala junior side at home on Saturday, watched by coach Jo Cufone.

Lower North were quick to chase the total down, openers Todd McPharlin and Jason Henderson scoring freely but with just six runs needed to win, Henderson was stumped by Stedall off the bowling of Forrest for a quick-fire 21. McPharlin and Darling scored the remaining runs with ease. Clare Combined now meet Watervale in this weekend’s preliminary final, to be held at Sevenhill. In the B grade, Lower North defeated Clare Blue by superior run rate when rain stopped play. In doing so, the Buffaloes also go through to the grand final, while Clare Blue will play Sevenhill in this weekend’s preliminary final.

Lower North vs Clare Blue

Les Pearson reports THE weather did Long Plains Cricket Club no favours in its Stanley Cricket Association first semi final against Watervale at Clare on Saturday afternoon, the Redbacks chasing down a reduced target of 101 following two rain delays. Batting first, Long Plains set a competitive total of 130 on an extremely slow Clare outfield. The match was evenly poised when a shower stopped play briefly in the tenth. Long Plains president, Todd Daniel, said play was resumed a little too quickly after the break, with the outfield still fairly damp. “It was too slippery, so we couldn’t bowl off our full runs,” he said. The second rain shower came and Watervale was set a reduced target but with plenty of wickets in hand and bowling and fielding conditions less than ideal, Long Plains faced an uphill battle. The Redbacks secured the preliminary final berth with two overs to spare. It was an unlucky and untimely exit for Long Plains after a solid first season in the Stanley competition. “I was pretty happy with the season but I would have liked to have won a final,” Daniel said. “It was something we used to pride ourselves in our old association.” Of the Long Plains batsmen, Heath Pym had a solid year, with 384 runs including three half-centuries. Dean West, after crossing from Dublin this season, maintained a solid average of more than 30 and posted about 300 runs for the year. Captain and veteran pace bowler, Michael Warnes, was his consistent best, snaring 20 wickets at an average of 9.5 a piece. “He still runs in pretty hard,” Daniel said. Warnes was backed up by Sam McArdle with 15 wickets, while Michael Trussell had season-best figures of 6/17 included in his total of 14 wickets for the year. It has been a big year at the club, with its new cricket nets nearly completed as well. They will be looking to go two steps better next season.

Andrew Vandeleur and Hayden Calaby set about forming a small partnership but it was all too brief, Ryan McPharlin coaxing a faint edge from Vandeleur, who was caught behind for Clare’s fifth duck of the innings. Tom Forrest joined Calaby and the two put together the team’s top partnership of 12 before a mix-up led to Forrest’s dismissal, run out by Darling for six. Spinner, Shaun Dykes, was introduced to the attack with immediate success, the third ball of his first over luring Calaby out of his crease, who was stumped for 10. Clare Combined bowled out for 36, Darling capturing 3 for 7, Higgs 3 for 9.

Jamie Windsor’s shooting star

n BIANCA Smith puts Jazzy through her paces.

REPORT: Les Pearson ASPOT in the national team is the target for Windsor shooting star, Jamie Gilbert, when he competes for the South Australian junior team at the National Trap Championships at Wagga Wagga later this month. Jamie qualified first in the state for his division at the recent state carnival. “We’re all very proud of him,” his mother, Tania Gilbert said. “I’m a very happy mum at the moment.” The talent flows in the family, Jamie’s father, Graeme, a former Australian champion in his own right. Mrs Gilbert said her son relishes taking every opportunity he can to go out and practice. It also gives him something to aim for, for want of a better term. “He’s got a pretty full on personality, so shooting is one way to help focus his mind on one thing,” Mrs Gilbert said. Jamie and his father travel around to various nearby clubs to shoot. The family also have a machine to launch the clay targets at their Windsor home. “Graeme has had to step back a bit now the kids have taken over,” Mrs Gilbert laughed. Jamie hopes to wear the green and gold one day. “My main goal, long term, is to representAustralia in either the Olympic or Commonwealth Games,” he said. Both Jamie and little brother Shaun recently received insulin pumps to help control their diabetes and Jamie believed it has been a great help to him in improving his shooting. “It’s been much easier to carry it around and shooting with it has been pretty good,” he said. His experience from last year will come in handy at the week-long event from March 24. “Last year, I shot alright but it was way different compared to shooting here,” Jamie said. “The intensity was up with more people around.” The game plan is rather simple. “I’ll try and shoot everything I can and go from there,” Jamie said.

The Club Championships is an annual competition, open to members of the club. The club meets on the first Saturday of every month, however due to the Easter long weekend, April’s will be held on the last Saturday of school holidays (April 21). Balaklava Pony Club will be holding a rideathon in May to raise money to build a sand arena for jumping.

DIVISION THREE JUNIOR TENNIS n LAUREN Turner, Two Wells hits a forehand on the run during Saturday’s junior tennis match at Mallala. n LEFT: Lauren’s Mallala opponent, Kimberley Matters jumps to get this bouncy shot.

balaklava night

A nipply night saw some thrillers and some hidings in both divisions. Acting captain Tanya Heslop’s Incredibles scraped through to defeat new captain Carly Freidrichs’ Simpsons, 3-26 to 3-22 in an exciting division two match. Two 5-3s went the Simpsons’ way, but the other four sets were 6-2s. Simpsons’ Danielle Murphy and opponent Lorraine Jenner, who dusted the cobwebs off her racquet, had consistent 6-2s in every set. Incredy’s Wade Hudson and opponent Carly played some excellent rallies, as did young Ben Mayne and his even younger opponent Alexandra Wilson. Please note Carly and Alex are now playing permanently for the rest of the season. Tanya Heslop and opponent Luke Cropley featured in the two 5-3s, but Luke got sick of that score and won the last 6-2 with Danielle. Emily Taylor’s Grinches were seen jumping for joy after finally having a win, 3-27 to 3-21 over Cherie Cleary’s unlucky Flintstones. The oldest Grinch, Philip Shepherd was on a mission in his first set with Daniel Lu as they gave Flintys Alice Parsons and Ash Flynn the big heave-ho, but let them keep their dignity 7-1. Cherie and Warren McRostie, also a permanent recruit, had a good 5-3 win over Emily and Fran Henderson. Warren was happy with that and decided to have another 5-3 win with Alice. Daniel was on fire and gave Emily a pep talk and they got up to win their set together. With sets level and the Grinches up by six games, it was down to the last two. And wouldn’t you know it, they were both 6-2s. One each, so they basically cancelled each other out. A good match everyone! But the final division two match was a bit of a shocker. Bec Houston’s Nemos had a big win over David Northcott’s Shreks 6-40 to 0-8. I’m not sure if we’ve ever had 40 scored before! Having said that, David and Sue Nicholson were not disgraced as they came second in a long 5-3 to Bec and Holly Cowan, on debut. And David and Megan Shepherd also did well losing a 6-2 to Bec and Kylie Scott. There were three sets of 7-1, and fortunately for the Shreks, only one dak dropper, which was a great effort against the top team. Keanan Catford and Holly inflicted the dakdropper on Emma-Lee Lomman and Sue, which was an uncomfortable moment for them as the weather was a bit chilly! In division one, Scott McDonald’s Die Hards scraped through by a measly two games over Andrew Lane’s Bad Boys, 3-25 to 3-23. Andrew and Kerry Williams didn’t start well, with serves being broken everywhere and Laney being given a caution, coming second to Scott and Leonie McRostie, who has apparently been giving husband Warren some coaching - tennis coaching that is. Andrew did turn that loss around to win his next two against Scott, so he could gloat just slightly. BBs fill-in Pauline Hill and ‘Where’s Wally’ Treverton won a 5-3 over Geoff Gardner and Douglas Howard to even things up. The remaining four sets were

5-3s which didn’t help the BBs’ final score. We can say Pauline, Wally, Geoff and Leonie were consistent and evenly matched as they had 5-3s in every set. Stand in captain for the injured Marty Brice, Helen Barry helped her Ghostbusters team to victory over Darren Scholz’s Lethal Weapons 4-30 to 2-18. The first four sets were 5-3s so it was close up until then. But the average age of the Weapons was more than that of the Ghostbusters, and it showed as the Weapons ran out of puff. Ghostys Don Veitch and the everyready man Gary Wehr spoilt the show, winning 6-2 over Scholzy and Colin Mutton. But for a change, it was the girls who copped a shellacking, with Di Taylor and Julia Hoskin having to reveal the

over Dustin Guthberg and Tania Allen. It must be noted there was lots of framing going on, that is hitting of the ball with the racquet frame, especially by Jared and Chris, but eventually they got their eyes in. One minor round match to go and we wish all teams the best of luck. Remember everyone plays on the final night- an extra team for division one∑ will be made up.

n RACHEL Dunstan in action for Mallala’s division one side.

wrinkled bits to opponents Helen B and Kathryn Taylor, who showed no mercy in the deciding set. The final division one match was a turnaround win for Louise Michael’s Terminators after losing last week, as they defeated Paul ‘red knees’ McBride’s Fugitives 6-31 to 0-18. Ouch. But all was not lost for the Fugitives as four sets were 5-3s and one a tiebreaker, but they just couldn’t win one. Fill-in Fugitive Joy Ryan and opponent Cherie Cmrlec had consistent 5-3s in every set with some long rallies played. After losing the first two sets, Paul resorted to bodyline tactics, hitting Cherie in her thigh, making her look like Paul’s red knees, and she later rushed home for some treatment from Dave. Termy’s Chris Curnow and Jared Thiele, who was on fire at net, changed the score to a 6-2 in the mens, but it was the last set that nearly gave the Fugitives a win. Jared and Louise ended up making hard work of a tiebreaker but won it

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 1992, and also identified on the diagram below. This may affect access to the Gulf of St Vincent at Port Wakefield and Port Parham.

Survival of the fittest n jake Olsen has his eye in as he bowls for Balaklava Gold in the Division One match on Saturday.

First Balaklava triathlon a winner

Division One double chance

ORGANISERS of the first triathlon hosted by the Balaklava Swimming Club were thrilled with the event and are almost certain to hold another one next year. Swimming club treasurer, Paul McBride, said 46 competitors braved the three different length courses on Sunday, which included 38 individual and three team entries. “We were hoping for about 50 so we were very happy with the numbers for our first one,” he said. “It was almost exactly what we wanted as we didn’t want to be inundated with entries. “Everyone was also really happy with how it was set up. “We had marshals in the right place and enough signs up, so everything went really well.” n Continued page 16

REPORT: By John Glistak, WMBA secretary

n jarrad Olsen crosses the finish line after his run on Sunday. INSET: Bec Dixon, Nadene Wehr, Eliza Cottle, Claire Catford and Merridy Manuel show off their muscles.

After a week’s break, bowlers returned to the green with some interesting results being noted across the Divisions. The stage is now set for an intriguing final round where a number of sides hope to sow up their positions in readiness for the finals. In Division One, last weekend, Riverton emerged victors over Owen for the first time this season by 22 shots with two rinks up. Mullins (R) had a tight tussle with T. Harkness (O) being going down by three shots. In other rinks, Rogers (R) defeated N. Harkness (O) by 17 shots while Griffiths (R) had an eight shot win over Parker (O). In other matches, Balaklava Gold consolidated top spot with a 20 shot win over Mallala, Port Wakefield was too strong for Balaklava Green, and Hamley Bridge easily accounted for Wasleys. n Continued page 18
