Les Pearson reports: for cash, the thieves pilfered through office drawers and filing cabinets. Shane Cunningham, manager of Cunningham’s Engineering, said it has been “a while” since the business was last burgled. “My main concern was for the computers – but they’re still here,” he said. “They also took the cash drawer out but we

don’t leave any cash here.” A second break at MAP Financial Strategies the same night is believed to be linked. Offenders used a crowbar to jemmy the door open, before stealing a laptop computer, petty cash and other miscellaneous items. It was the second time the business has been targeted in six months. • Continued Page 24

Farmers warned on new transport ruling

LOCAL farmers are being reminded of new legal measures they must take when transporting machinery on various roads around the district. State Member for Goyder, Steven Griffiths, (pictured) has been eagerly spreading the message regarding the transport of large agricultural machinery, especially with the seeding season cranking up. Since mid 2011, it has been a requirement that a copy of the Government Gazette Notice and/or relevant Codes of Practice are in the vehicle with the driver and able to produced, in hard copy or electronically via a smartphone, upon request by police. The respective forms are available online. Mr Griffiths was appalled when he heard many growers were unaware of the new requirements. “I have been contacted by many people regarding the rules and regulations when transporting agricultural machinery which is over-size, over mass or as a load as they had been issued with infringement notices involving significant penalties or had received warnings,” he said. “My concern was that with seeding just starting and a lot of machinery being moved around that if farmers did not have the right bit of paper with them they were going to receive large fines. “It’s just crazy, when clearly the need exists to ensure the agricultural industry was aware of what it had to do.”

Sally Crowther reports: For local Balaklava resident and asthma sufferer Luke Williams, a warning put out by National Asthma Council (NACA) has made him think twice about the usage of his asthma medication. With World Asthma Day held yesterday, NACA is calling for people with asthma to regularly use their preventer medication following revelations of an alarming overuse of reliever inhalers. According to NACA, many Australians with asthma are putting their lives at risk by failing to use their prescribed preventer medication and are relying on their asthma reliever puffers. Luke, 18, who has suffered from asthma as long as he can remember admits he isn’t as cautious as he could be when it comes to dealing with his asthma. • He is pictured with the preventer in the foreground and his puffer. “I used to take my preventer everyday, but now I just take my reliever when I need to, which

Warning on ‘puffer’ asthma medication probably isn’t the right thing to do,” Luke said. NACA Director, Dr Jonathan Burdon, warned people who used their reliever medication more than two to three days a week were at greatest risk of a lifethreatening severe asthma attack. “If you’re using a lot of reliever medication, your asthma is poorly controlled because ideally

you should be using your reliever medication very little, if at all, and using your preventer medication daily to ensure that you no longer suffer asthma symptoms,” Dr Burdon said. More than two million Australians have asthma – one of the world’s highest per capita rates. • Visit www.nationalasthma. org.au.

IT’S HISTORY MONTH

ELLE Missen is one of many locals who will be turning back time this month with a wide array of events planned to celebrate the South Australian History Festival, running right throughout May. Elle, of Mallala, is “dressed to the nines” to help promote Mallala Museum as it encourages locals to get frocked up for its event, Dressed to the Nines, to be held twice this month. It features a special exhibition of some rarely seen items from the museum’s collection, including clothing and accessories from different bygone eras. Visitors can get dressed up in period costumes and have their photo taken in front of the museum’s historical backdrop and props.

Elle’s ‘Dressed to the Nines’

The first Dressed to the Nines day will be this Sunday, followed by another next Wednesday, both from 11am to 4pm. Balaklava Museum, celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, is hosting an event to honour the group’s early pioneers on Sunday, May 27. Two of the museum’s founders will be honoured with the naming of the Grace Anders Memorial Music Room and the Margaret Glee-

son Records Room. At Dublin, the local history group is unveiling its new home and research centre in the town’s institute. The institute is now a history centre to house the Dublin History Group’s collection of historical records relating to the local area, including maps, photos, WWI veterans’ dossiers, WWII photos, memorabilia and much more. The official opening will be held on Sunday, May 20, from 1pm to 4pm, at the Dublin Institute. Avon Art and Craft Guild hosts A Moment of Time in Avon, South Australia on May 22 from 11am and 3pm. The event is an open day, featuring an exhibition of historical records and photographs from the rural town.

She had previously completed a teaching placement at the school, Leverenz was working at, Glossop High. It took the whole weekend of March 31 to April 1 to shoot the three and half minute clip. “Saturday was the longest day,” Kate said. “All the girls got there at noon and left at about 6.30pm.” Regardless of the long hours, she said it was an enjoyable weekend. “I loved being a part of it!” Kate beamed. “It was a lot of fun and a really great experience.” To watch the clip, simply visit www.youtube.com/watch? v=kYV5aRgPpEA

NEWS v District mallala:

Now the paperwork’s finished, the real job’s ahead of them!

Les Pearson reports:

ITH three years of plans and talking now down the drain, the idea of placing shower and toilet facilities at the free camping site around the Mallala oval is soon to become a reality. District Council of Mallala decided at its recent meeting to support a proposal from the local Lions club to build an ablution block for both campers and the wider public. The proposed location of the facility is the north eastern corner of the sporting grounds and is intended to provide toilet and shower facilities, supporting the use of the area as a short term camping area. A Lions club sub-committee was formed to handle the project, committee member Neil Slater part of that group since day one. “A number of blokes in the Lions are grey nomads, so they brought up the idea of getting the facilities there for people staying at the park,” Mr Slater said. While not flushed with cash, Mr Slater said the club has steadily put money aside for the project over the years, with the project set to cost about $80,000. “It is still a bit touch and go as far as finances are concerned but I think we’re past the stage where it was looking in doubt now,” he said. The club is looking at enlisting the help of local students involved in the Target Work program, a practical skills training initiative run through high schools during the construction phase. There were a handful of public submissions opposing the proposed facility but Mr Slater said the project had garnered its fair share of support from representatives of local businesses and the motorsport park. Mallala Football Club is also contributing funding to the toilet block, as it will be available to all spectators for use. Council had previously approved $10,000 from the now defunct Mallala Sports Complex Committee be allocated to this project. More details, including ongoing maintenance of the facility, will be confirmed at a meeting with council. In DCM’s Strategic Community and Governance Committee agenda from April 16, it states the Lions Club believed the building would become council property and the ongoing maintenance and cleaning would become the responsibility of council. If that does turn out to be the case, the estimated costs for maintaining a new

PICTURES: Lisa Redpath facility annually, based on the current toilet block with no shower facility was $4,724. That figure included a cleaning contract for three times a week ($3,324 annually), gutter cleaning ($500), emptying the septic ($500) and general maintenance ($400). “There would also be a requirement to factor in the Asset Management Plan for renewal and major maintenance,” the council report said. “Insurance of the facility would become Councils responsibility with an estimated yearly cost of no more than $250.” Mr Slater said the Lions were keen to help out where they could. “We’re committed to the project and we will keep working on it as an ongoing thing,” he said. He said to finally be close to the construction stage comes as a relief. “We originally thought three years ago that it was something quick as easy to do,” Mr Slater laughed. “It’s been a long, drawn-out process and we were looking at giving it away but we thought we would give it one more go.”

Farmers warned of fines • From Page 1 Mr Griffiths also contacted the Minister for Transport, Patrick Conlon, seeking information as to how the requirements were communicated to agricultural machinery owners and operators. Police Minister, Jennifer Rankine, was sent a letter seeking information about recent expiation notices that have been issued regarding the transport of agricultural machinery. Mr Griffiths said it has been a rather frustrating matter. “Minister Rankine has replied back confirming that it is a matter for the Minister for Transport and I am still waiting for Conlon’s reply,” he said. “She has, however, agreed a Yorke Peninsula resident, who was issued with an expiation notice for $997, has instead received a caution and the fine removed.” Further to his efforts, Mr Griffiths contacted the South Australian Farmers Federation, receiving

a “good reply”, and also the Motor Traders Association. He was assured local police were aware of the situation. “Things will be OK if the police take the right attitude – and I am pleased I have had good responses from the local police senior officer, Martin Bazeley, at Kadina on this,” Mr Griffiths said. “It is paramount this information is available through as many avenues as possible, and receives publicity so the public can follow new implemented laws rather than being fined and becoming a revenue raising opportunity for the government. “It is disappointing to note this information has been poorly publicised, and many people are unaware of the requirements when transporting agricultural machinery on major or minor transport routes.” The Goyder electorate has few major roads. They include National Highway One, Copper

Coast Highway (Port Wakefield to Wallaroo via Kadina), Moonta to Paskeville Road and a small section of the Yorke Highway (Port Wakefield to Ardrossan). All other roads within the electorate are minor roads and have different guidelines to the above major roads. Machinery less than 3.7 metres wide does not require an escort vehicle on any road. For major roads machinery less than six metres in width require a pilot vehicle if a clear view front and rear of up 500 metres cannot be maintained at all times, while machinery greater than six metres in width must have front and rear escort vehicle at all times. On minor roads escort vehicles are required for machinery between 3.7 and 7.5 metres in width if a clear view front and rear of up to 500 metres cannot be maintained at all times. • More details can be found online.

WE HEARD! Name Rings a bell – Two local ladies were at a committee meeting recently and were discussing mobile phone numbers with other committee members. The pair were adding and exchanging numbers, which started to become a bit of a blur. Or maybe that was because of the wine? (this is a committee renowned for its meetings!) After a couple of rings, one lady realised it was her phone ringing. She answered it, and began chatting to the person on the other end. The two were so busy talking to the person who called – as they do very well – but were not really listening to who was on the other end. Why are we not surprised? Eventually they realised they were in fact talking to each other. And yes, they are both blonde and technologically challenged. But their Balaklava golf club 100 Club dinner was a super success last Saturday night. Well done to all on THAT social committee!

Puppy nutrition A Well-Balanced Diet is essential for your dog’s long-term health. To ensure he gets one, you need to be aware of the following… Six of the best: to help him lead an active, healthy life, your dog’s diet needs to have the right balance of the six major nutrient groups: proteins, fats and oils, minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates, water. Unless your dog is pregnant or nursing, there is no reason to upset this balance from the early days of adulthood until the end of the sixth year when your dog reaches ‘senior’ status. Ideally, dogs need a combination of meat, cereals and vegetables to get the nutritional balance right. A good-quality manufactured dog food will have been carefully formulated to provide the proper balance of all the nutrients a dog requires, as well as tasting good. Despite the temptation, adding human food and scraps to a nutritionally balanced food doesn’t do your dog any favours, and will often upset this fine nutritional balance.

Derily said a fridge was due to arrive tomorrow, with cold items such as milk and dairy goods, ice creams, orange juice and other drinks available soon after. Lollies and chips are available now.

how successful it will be,” she said. “I have done the best I can do with the short notice and I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Kylie and Rowan (Sheridan) for using my business in this town and for their cheerfulness in dealing with me.” The hotel will also stock several items also available in the post office but also more of the grocery items the Post Office will not be stocking. The range includes grocery goods, lollies, pies, milk, bread, ice creams, iced coffee, soft drinks, ice, cigarettes and the weekend papers. The bottle shop entrance on Railway terrace is the closest to the new area where the weekend papers and other items are now situated.

Informative day on Two Wells housing development ...

It’s the ‘next big thing’

Local resident Bronwyn Sharpe, took her granddaughters, Emma, 6, and Chloe, 8, along to view the proposed plans. The girls live near the proposed development and were interested to see if vegetation near their home would remain as part of the project.

LOCAL residents turned out to view the District Council of Mallala’s proposed Development Plan Amendment (DPA) for north of Two Wells at a public open day in the town on Sunday April 29. Held in conjunction with representatives from housing developer Hickinbotham and design firm, Design IQ, DCM chief executive officer, Charles Mansueto, said the day had been informative for all parties involved and for local residents. Council has been working on the DPA for many months, with between 2600 and 3400 homes proposed for land just north of Two Wells. Mr Mansueto said the aim of the session was to give residents a closer look at the plans as well as provide an opportunity to speak first hand with

Design IQ managing director, Michael Visintin, Hickinbotham’s Two Wells project manager, Ruth Vagnarelli, and Hickinbotham managing director, Michael Hickinbotham.

Bec O’Brien reports: the design team and the developers. “Generally the feedback yesterday was very supportive of the concept and the proposal,” he said. “One of the comments was that it was much

needed in the district.” As of this week, Mr Mansueto said no formal submissions had been received from members of the public, and once the consultation period closed on May 31, council would collate and analyse any submissions. “Anyone making a formal submission has the opportunity to be heard by council at a community meeting in June,” Mr Mansueto added. “But that meeting will only be held if there are people who have lodged submissions and have requested to be heard by council.” Hickinbotham managing director, Michael Hickinbotham enjoyed engaging with residents and said the open day was a great way for locals to see how their ideas had been incorporated into the development design. “This has been a great opportunity for members of the community to meet the design team and have any of their questions answered,” Mr Hickinbotham said. “This is part of the best practice community engagement process

(and) I’m very pleased to see the ideas and aspirations that were gleaned from the community place making sessions have been reflected in the design of the development. “I think there’s a very high level of ownership within the community because people feel their ideas have been listened to.” Malcolm Frost was one of about 20 residents who dropped in and said he hoped the development could move forward as it was important for the future of Two Wells. “I see a lot of benefits with this development for the township,” Malcolm said. “It’s a big thing for our township (and) it will strengthen, in all aspects, our town. “The efforts that have been put into the community consultation is just fantastic.” Community consultation on the DPA closes on Thursday May 31, with all submissions to be received by no later than 5pm. Visit the District Council of Mallala offices, at either Two Wells or Mallala, or www.mallalla.sa.gov.au for further information.

Budget a bitter pill for us HUGE budget cuts outlined by the State government have potential implications on country health services and its employees, according to Shadow Health Minister, Martin Hamilton-Smith. Mr Hamilton-Smith (pictured) said crisis measures across at least six budget lines were “clearly being put in place for damage control of health finances in the face of massive budget overruns, bungled projects and costly financial mismanagement”. Health Minister, John Hill, announced 53 full-time bureaucratic positions would be cut, at an average cost of $190,000 to save $10 million, although Treasury has outlined 351 full-time positions to be cut. “Minister Hill said just months ago they were all filling important roles, now they’re completely disposable,” Mr Hamilton-Smith said.

Daphne soon 102 Mallala resident, Daphne Murdoch will celebrate her 102nd birthday on Thursday, May 17. Daphne, who was born in Port Pirie in 1910, grew up with a passion for music and studied music at the age of 15 as a concert pianist at Elders Conservatorium. Daphne first married in 1934 to Les Belcher, with whom she had two sons Richard and Peter Belcher. In 1952, Daphne remarried to Angus Murdoch and in 1967 they moved to Two Wells where Daphne was heavily involved in golf and bowls. Daphne went to live in Mallala Community Hospital on October 9, 2003. Daphne admits throughout her life she “has had a darn good time”. Daphne enjoys spending her time playing the piano and is often visited by her two sons, six grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

Libs claim cuts will impact on country services “Clearly there is more pain to come.” Treasury has also recommended capital works cuts on new health projects, including a major investment to upgrade Breast Screen SA’s digital mammography across both metropolitan and regional areas. Works to expand Lyell McEwin Hospital’s cancer treatment facilities and equipment is another item facing the axe. “These are the new projects Premier, Jay Weatherill, and Health Minister, John Hill, promised in the 2011 Budget, which Parliament has now been told are on the chopping

board to cover avoidable cost blowouts and financial mismanagement elsewhere in health,” Mr HamiltonSmith said. For country health employees, the flexitime arrangement is set to be cut for workers who earn more than $80,000 a year. “You don’t introduce a benefit for workers, only to take it away,” Mr Hamilton-Smith said. While against the flexitime cut, he was unable to commit to a reintroduction of the benefit, should it eventually be cut. “I’m not in the position to make promises to reverse every single cut made by the Labor government,” Mr Hamilton-Smith said. The health department has ap-

She celebrated her 100th Birthday, with her seven children and their partners, at which letters were read from the Queen and Governor-General, Quentin

Bryce, and many others.

plied further spending constraints. “Directives have also been issued to hospitals that only essential supplies should be purchased, that existing supplies should be exhausted and a review is to be undertaken of non-essential stock purchases and petty cash management,” Mr Hamilton-Smith said. He suggested Minister Hill should be held to account for the “mess that is the state’s health budget”, set to blow out to a $125 million deficit. “You can delegate the work but you can’t delegate responsibility. The minister must be held responsible,” Mr Hamilton-Smith said. Minister Hill has received directives to return the health budget

to surplus but with the new Royal Adelaide Hospital still on the cards, Mr Hamilton-Smith doubted it was possible. “He’s got no chance,” he said. A recent cut of funding to the Keith Hospital was just the tip of the iceberg for rural services getting the chop, according to Mr Hamilton-Smith. “Health Minister Hill is pulling money out of primary health care and the country to fund his Taj Mahal hospital in Adelaide and to pay for his $125 million budget blow out, all of his own making,” he said. “Country people are being asked to suffer to pay for his poor decisions and financial mismanagement. “It’s a bit of a worry.”

STUDENTS developing an urban concept design for Hamley Bridge will present their draft findings following three community consultation sessions held earlier this year at a community meeting in the town’s institute on Monday, May 14. The presentation will include proposals for the guiding principles and recommendations, which can lead towards the developing Hamley Bridge that the people want Wakefield Regional Council acting chief executive officer, Geoff Sheridan, will run through the project’s process at 7pm, and also introduce newly appointed CEO, Cate Atkinson, to the community. The students will then present and take questions until about 8.30pm. University of Adelaide Master of Planning course coordinators, Dr Susan Shannon (pictured) and Rick Atkinson, have conducted a community consultation in the town to ascertain what it is the community values about Hamley. The consultation also targeted what needed to be improved to make Hamley Bridge a stronger, more sustainable community. From the initial consultation on March 1, seven themes emerged, including community, environment, infrastructure, buildings and heritage, history, freshwater and rivers and transport. Students returned to Hamley Bridge on April 3, and, at a drop in community consultation, they talked to community members for four hours about those themes. “A large aerial photo of Hamley helped to pinpoint town assets and promote township conversations and a larger regional map helped to focus on the regional connections that were valuable to community members,” Dr Shannon said. Viterra, the company which owns

and manages the grain bulk handling assets in Makin Terrace and Light Street, had its assets manager, Tim Walsh, address the students last month. Development firm, Gemtree, had representative, Simon Cross, who is conducting feasibility studies into the township development, also held discussions with the students recently. “These valuable inputs helped students to understand aspects of Hamley Bridge’s future from key stakeholder perspectives,” Dr Shannon said. Local WRC southern ward councillor, Barry Smith, is in contact daily with Dr Shannon, discussing ongoing developments such as the recreation grounds upgrade, and the hospital’s development intentions. Dr Shannon said the upcoming presentation evening would put some suggestions to the community and allow the students to gauge their responses. “At the meeting, residents and community members will have plenty of opportunity to consider the students’ summary of the consultation process,” Dr Shannon said. “It will help determine if their interpretation of the community’s ideas and concerns is accurate and to respond to the students’ first draft of ideas and concepts for the future of Hamley Bridge. “Students have collated and carefully integrated all the feedback from the community consultation in April.” Dr Shannon and Mr Atkinson said it was never too late to get involved in the community consultation process and invited anyone interested to come to the meeting on Monday, May 14 at 7pm. Alternatively, people can contact Dr Shannon direct at the university on 8303 5490.

Blyth looks ‘new beaut’ A crowd of 100 plus gathered at Blyth’s Padnaindi Reserve on Anzac day to officially open the new shelter shed and panel fencing at Padnaindi Reserve. Ian Roberts, co-ordinator of the historical panel fencing surrounding the grass area – and Janet Zweck, coordinator of the “new beaut” shelter shed, spoke of the development of the projects and thanked the many community volunteers, businesses and tradesmen who supplied their services and equipment freely to the projects. Messages were received and read from those who funded the project, including the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal and Viterra Community Fund, together with Kylie Williams, chairperson of Blyth Development Board, congratulating Blyth Progress Association on their achievements. Wakefield Regional Council mayor, James Maitland, officially cut the ribbon amongst great applause. The framed photos of how the panel fencing was made created much interest and will provide a wealth of information to travellers calling in to view the panels and enjoy the shelter. With the day being slightly showery the shed was put to good use and the community wondered how we did without it for so many years. The shed was full of chatter and a sausage sizzle was enjoyed by all. The next question is: “What’s the next project?”

Enjoying the Padnaindi opening are Kath Cooper, Simone Bigg, Valerie Carling and Kylie Williams.

Smoother sailing on marine park plan THE State government announced an agreement has been reached with the conservation, recreational and commercial fishing sectors on the zoning approach for South Australia’s network of marine parks. This announcement was met with more criticism from the Liberal party, with Shadow Environment Minister, Steve Marshall, again raising the issue of the social and economic impacts on communities if the parks were implemented. “There is still no Regional Impact Statement and no information about compensation for the commercial fishing industry,” Mr Marshall said. “(We) believe the Labor government needs to consider the social and economic impact of these sanctuary zones on coastal communities before finalising the plans.” Last week, Premier Jay Weatherill, Environment Minister, Paul Caica, and Fisheries Minister, Gail Gago, released details of the agreement and plans for the next stage of public consultation to create the parks. Leaders from the conservation, recreational and commercial fishing sectors met Minister Caica and Minister Gago earlier this month and have agreed on priority areas for conservation after the State government announced in November it was postponing draft plans to allow further discussions with these groups. The government

claims under the proposal, which will undergo more detailed mapping and public consultation this year, recreational fishing will be largely unaffected in the state’s 19 Marine Parks. “Marine parks have the potential to be a great selling point for South Australia, but to be successful they must be embraced by the whole community,” Mr Weatherill said. “So it is great that the conservation, recreational and commercial fishing sectors have come together to help make them happen.” Mr Caica said the meeting of sector leaders used the work from earlier consultation to reach agreement on a zoning approach “Marine parks have always enjoyed widespread support in the community, but the location of the sanctuary zones has been a contentious issue,” Mr Caica said. “Regional communities provided their views on zoning through the Marine Park Local Advisory Groups and this information was used at this month’s meeting of sector leaders. “The result of the meeting was the identification of a series of priority areas for conservation.” The next step in the process will be the preparation of the draft management plan and impact statements, which will be released for public consultation as required under legislation soon.

The calendar…a part of everyday life Where would we be without a calendar to keep track of days, dates and all those meetings and appointments? The civil calendar universally used today is known as the Gregorian Calendar (named after Pope Gregory XIII, who signed a decree known as a ‘papal bull’ on February 24, 1582), but the calendar, in its earliest form, dates back thousands of years. The Egyptians lay claim to the earliest form of calendar, dating back to 4236BC, and legend says that Emperor Huangdi invented the Chinese calendar in 2637BC. The ancient Egyptian calendar had 365 days, but the early Chinese, Greek and Jewish calendars had 354 (with days added at intervals; e.g. the Chinese added days to keep the Chinese lunar calendar

mer season was April to October, and winter from October to April. We all know there are 12 months in a year, and in a leap year we get that extra day in February. I’m not going to even attempt to explain why the months don’t all have the same number of days. Most ‘special’ days, such as Christmas are observed each year on the same date (Christmas Day is always December 25), but Easter is different. The date of Easter is determined by the phases of the moon; Easter Sunday is observed on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the March equinox. The earliest it can be is about March 25 or 26, and the latest date is about April 24.

aligned with the seasons). Just to confuse everyone, the Greeks had two calendars – ‘festival’ and ‘political’ (or ‘conciliar’), not necessarily the same length of year for each! The Romans used two different year lengths – the older one had 304 days divided into 10 months, and the newer one had 365 days divided into 12 months. On January 1 45BC, Julius Caesar changed the Roman year to 365 days – this became known as the Julian calendar.

Pope Gregory amended the year to 365 days, 5 hours, 49 minutes, 12 seconds – he had determined the Julian calendar had overestimated our calendar year per year by 10 minutes and 48 seconds. By the mid-1700’s, most of the Catholic and Protestant countries had accepted the Gregorian calendar. Japan did not accept it until 1873, Russia in 1917 (and again in 1940), China in 1949, and the Eastern Orthodox Church accepted it in 1971. Then there were the Vikings – in medieval Scandinavia, their calendar was divided into two seasons, winter and summer. There were 12 lunar months in the Old Icelandic lunar calendar. The sum-

Balaklava Stitch Joint CROSSWORD

“Songs I Never Want to Hear” charts. I’m tiring of less-talented family members trying to cut the mustard on these reality shows. Jimmy Barnes’ daughter, Mahalia, was eliminated by close friend, Prinnie Stevens on Monday night, much to my relief. The problem with the knockout phase in this show, is lower lights like Adam Martin (on Keith Urban’s team), who performed equally as terribly as eliminated contestant, Abbie Cardwell, stay in the competition. All the while, superstars such as Mitchell Thompson (Team Seal) and the likeable yet geeky Adam Hoek (Team Delta), were eliminated despite excellent performances. I, like many television viewers out there, was tired of the reality show/competition programs but The Voice has got me. Whether it’s because of the

Good News Ken Packer

talented stars on the judging panel or the plethora of different singers unearthed during the audition phase, I’m not sure. Adelaide’s legally blind competitor, Rachael Leahcar made it through at the expense of Hoek but deservedly so. Leahcar’s voice is unique and wonderfully soulful, although how she will go selling her music is a hurdle yet to be reached. Team Seal also features the unique pipes of Karise Eden. I can appreciate what she’s been through and her voice definitely stands out but I found it about as pleasant as eating the skin off old custard. Tonight we should hear from former backup singer, Carmen Smith, who looks like her makeup was applied with a shotgun – but damn, the girl can sing. My tip for the winner of the competition: Ben Hazlewood. Tune in next time, ‘coz I’m Mr Brightside.

g 3 Pages SPECIAL FEATURE v ANZAC DAY

Lest we forget

Murray Jericho reads the Ode, while Ian Roberts listens.

n BLYTH Blyth ANZAC day service was held in drizzly showers but this did not deter the 100 strong crowd from attending the service to honour those who fought and made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Ian Roberts led the touching service and together with Ian Zweck read an insert from a story of troopers who survived and returned from World War 1. The story exposed to the gathering the feeling of 5000 rounds a minute being poured into them on the tiny battlefield the size of three tennis courts and the awful roaring sound they made. The feeling of one trooper as he rose from the trench passing his dead or dying colleagues and as he ran forward feeling a bullet go through his hat knocked him out, but rising again only to get hit a few more times with piercing bullets going through his body. Murray Jericho, who had served in National Service from 1951-53, read the Ode. After the obligatory community photo the crowd moved over to Padnaindi Reserve for morning tea.

NUMBERS are growing for this annual Blyth Anzac day photograph.

Touched by Anne’s story A large crowd attended a service at the Tarlee war memorial monument, on Anzac day. Conducted by the Riverton Sub Branch, the address was given by long-time Tarlee resident, Anne Gilfillan. Anne spoke of her life at Giles Corner when there was an active community which revolved around the Merrindie School, and the Giles Corner Methodist Church. Anne, who celebrated her 86th birthday on Anzac Day, this year recalled two of her uncles were killed in World War I and her brother-in law (to be), in World War. II. She said these young men rushed to enlist when they turned 18. Sadly, so many never returned from all wars recalled at the service. John Tayler read eye witness reports of a training Avro Anson plane on an exercise from Mallala which crashed near Tarlee on a stormy night in September, 1943. It was noted the pilot was aged 21, the navigator, 27, and the two trainee pilots, each aged 19. John recalled being woken by his parents to observe the fire of the crash from his bedroom window, in which all four perished. Before the service, Helen Hatch and Tony Wellington hosted breakfast in the Tarlee Hotel garden, and after the service many returned for scones and Anzac biscuits

Nothing dampened their spirit n TWO WELLS

The grey clouds overhead and the intermittent light rain couldn’t dampen the sentimental feeling of the 500-plus crowd gathered at the Two Wells monument last week, as Anzac day was commemorated across the country. Even the auto-set sprinklers coming on during the service failed to lessen the stoic pause of heart and mind of those who had donned warm jackets to brave the weather to pay their respects and say thank you. Two Wells RSL president, Tony Flaherty, said the turnout for this year’s service was the best in recent years and signified the raise in profile of the men and women who have fought and are still fighting for the people of Australia and countries across the world. “Even in the rain, look at all the people we had here,” Tony said. “And especially all the kids who turned out, it was fantastic to see.” Former Two Wells resident and Australian Army soldier, Sgt Ryan Hummel, laid a wreath in memory of those who have fallen before him and in recognition of his comrades who are still fighting the fight. Ryan, who has served in East Timor and Afghanistan, said he joined the armed forces in 1995 and participating in the Two Wells Plains Producer, Wednesday May 2, 2012

Others to lay wreaths during the service included Member for Taylor, Leesa Vlahos, District Council of Mallala councilor, Mark Wasley, and members of the Two Wells Scout

ALAKLAVA commemorated Anzac Day in the Triangle last Wednesday when a large crowd braved wintry conditions as dawn broke. It was raining – as it was at many other town services – but as a resident remarked to one of the World War II RSL veterans in the pre-dawn gloom: “It rained on you during the war, didn’t it, Digger? Well, it can (expletive deleted) rain on us.” And so it did. But there were no complaints. People young and old – a great showing of the younger brigade – stoically formed their honour guard around the war memorial as MC and RSL member Warren Durdin related an original report by official World War I historian, Charles Bean, describing what made an Aussie DigMcCANN_SPE2024

It was cold and wet ... but not miserable

THEY

ger; how a nation was forged from the blood and mud of the Gallipoli trenches ... how the strongest bond in the Australian Imperial Force was that between a man and his mate. It stirred the emotions as we stood there in the drizzle, trying to imagine how those young bronzed Aussies waited on the fire-steps, knowing they were almost certainly about to advance to their death. Bean told how mateship became the Digger’s strongest bond; when in the final moments before the order was given to charge the Turks, an Aussie of the Third Battalion scampered along the top of the trench, rifle in hand, bayonet fixed. He was looking for his mate. Bean wrote: “Jim here, he asked?” A voice on the fire-step answered, “Right, Bill, here.” “Do you chaps mind shifting up a piece, said the man in the trench, “him and me are mates, an’we’re goin’ over together.” This was at Lone Pine, from August 6–10, 1915. There were more than 2,200 Australian casulaties, with 5,000–6,000 Turks killed or wounded. More Australians died at Lone Pine than those of us now living in Balaklava. Imagine that, a whole town gone.

But here in the Triangle were we – thanks, once again, to the efforts of Aussie soldiers from all conflicts. And thanks were given to them on this bleak morning in Balaklava. We placed wreaths of remembrance on the memorial. Lighthouse Christian Centre pastor, Rob Lawson, further described the horrors of war and feats of Australians at war. He recited the Lord’s Prayer and hymns were quietly sung, the crowd almost murmuring as if they were in the trenches themselves. As we “stood fast,” Peter Shaughnessy recited The Ode. Then, the revered silence. As if the last breath had been drawn by Jim or Bill. As if the guns had finally been hushed. Child’s eyes were wide. Adults, undoubtedly, moist. As it should be. Reveille was sounded, followed by the Benediction – and then the National Anthem echoed across the dampened town square before most trudged off to another Balaklava ANZAC tradition – the Lion-sized breakfast at the RSL. “Australians all, let us rejoice. For we are young and free.” Too right cobber. We’re mates. For we are young and free. Goodonya Diggers.

For Halbury truck driver Tony Ryan, last weekend was spent doing something out of the ordinary, when he participated in this years Historical Commercial Vehicle Rally.. Tony entered his 1979 Kenworth K124 truck into the Southern Yorke Peninsula Tour, alongside more than 60 other historical trucks from 1926-1981. “I’ve always thought about entering my truck into the rally, however it has mostly been held interstate, so when I heard it was local this year, I jumped at the chance,” Tony said. His truck, which he purchased from New South Wales in 1983, has since been used for work, carting grain and fertiliser over the past three decades. It’s travelled about 2.5 million kilometres! The tour was based at Edithburgh Caravan Park but also travelled through Yorketown, Warooka, Point Turton and Minlaton.

SPORT v Football

Pressure packed! Peckers claim hard-fought win over Magpies • From the back page. Balaklava added two goals through Ben Catford and Jonathon Brice. By the end of the third term, the lead was hovering at 22 points but the Peckers got the first few goals, sealing the result. Brothers, Justin and Lachy Michael, were brilliant at the stoppages, while Max Doherty was finding touches in space. Aaron Cocks’ last quarter was impressive too. Mallala wouldn’t go away though, the Magpies finding two goals of their own and never relented from their attack on the footy. “I was really pleased with the endeavour of the lads, they stuck at it and applied that pressure to cause the turnovers,” Lubcke said. “As all sides realise, you’ve got to have those pressure acts. “I think we hung in there and got a couple of goals to make it a fairly even quarter. “The players didn’t throw the towel in.” The Magpies’coach felt his team left themselves with too much to do after the first quarter. “Balaklava played the better footy but I felt we spent most of the day being fairly reactive,” Lubcke said. “We had our mini moments where we needed to put scoreboard pressure on. “We just weren’t able to execute when we had the initiative.” Lamond paid tribute to Mallala’s intensity around the contested ball. “Credit to Mallala, they didn’t let us play the free-flowing game we usually like to play,” he said. “They’re a pretty good side, as they’ve shown for the past four or five years.

fence was a positive aspect from the performance. “Our tackling and pressure on them through a majority of the game was excellent as well,” Lamond said. Mallala were without prime movers, Jason Earl (hamstring) and Brad Hardie (general soreness) but with the week off, they are a strong chance to come back into contention for this week against Hamley Bridge. “Every side has injuries, I don’t really waste too much time dwelling on it, to tell the truth,” Lubcke revealed. “If it was a final on Saturday, they probably would have played. “But, if someone is out, someone else is going to

THE Hamley Bridge Sporting Club and the wider community will unite in support of five-year-old Ryan Ellis, with a huge fundraising day on Saturday, May 12. Ryan, the son of Hamley Bridge footballer, Danny Ellis, was diagnosed with acute lymphatic leukaemia about a year ago, treatment starting almost immediately after diagnosis. Hamley Bridge Football Club junior colts coach, Lachlan Ireland, has helped organise the event to help raise funds for the Little Heroes Foundation in support of Ryan and the Ellis family’s plight. With the Bombers hosting HummocksWatchman Eagles that weekend, Lachlan said the whole day would feature various events and fundraisers, including a greatest shave and collection tins around the ground. While treatment continues, Ryan has taken on the role as Lachlan’s assistant coach, helping him lead the team on game day. “Ryan has always been a bubbly kid and loves his footy and the Port Adelaide Football Club,” Lachlan said. It has been a bit of a tough run lately for young Ryan, Lachlan hopeful the event can generate much needed support for the family. More details about the event will come as the day nears. Anyone wishing to help can donate to the Little Heroes Foundation.

Bombers-Tigers draw a thriller

SENIOR COLTS: Despite the efforts of Bombers Jordan Talbot and Jayden Wedding, Charlie McIntyre boots a goal for United.

the Final Siren with Les Pearson A GOAL after the siren snatched a draw from the jaws of defeat, or victory, depending on what team you were on, in the match between Hamley Bridge and United at Hamley Bridge on Saturday. United forward, Jamie McArdle, was on target when it counted, completing a remarkable comeback by the Tigers after being down by 43 points half way through the third quarter. The match started in brilliant fashion for the home team, as Hamley Bridge completely outplayed United, streaking to a 27-point lead at the first change. United stemmed the flow slightly in the second quarter, sticking with the Bombers on the scoreboard but still facing a five-goal deficit at the main break. Hamley Bridge kicked away in the third term and looked home and hosed. Whoever wrote the script for this contest had a wild imagination. “We began to open the game up and play it on our terms,” Opitz said. “We just started to use the ball better as we were burning it and coughing it up too much.” Tiger Josh Tynan was playing on the half-forward flank, matched up on one of Hamley’s stars, Craig Young.

Final score

Opitz ordered his team to use Tynan when they could to make Young more accountable, and he bobbed up with two important goals in the third term. Slowly but surely, United began to turn the tide, but were still 27 points in arrears with one quarter to play. Mark Pym’s influence across half-back began to show, while midfielder, Adrian Mills got better as the match went on. The Tigers hit the front in the last quarter and the match seesawed for a while before the Bombers wrested back the lead with only minutes to go. As the timers were preparing to ring the final siren, McArdle bobbed up in the pocket to add to the drama. He sent the kick on its way and the rest is history. It capped one of the greatest comebacks in the club’s history. “I’m happy with the result now, although I didn’t know how to feel at the time,” Opitz said. “Our first quarter was disgraceful but I was a little disappointed not to get a result.” He praised his team for sticking at the task at hand. “It could have blown out but credit to the guys, they plugged away and showed great character,” Opitz said. “A lot of people don’t rate us

because we haven’t got a big-name recruit but when we get it together, we’re a good team. “We’ve been working hard on the track and ran the game out brilliantly. “We had taken a step back with the start to the year we had but on the weekend, everyone could see the potential we have within the team.” Watching a lead slip away for the second week in a row was like a recurring nightmare for a disappointed Ash Barnett. “Unless you pull the boots on yourself, there’s not a lot you can do,” the Bombers’ coach said. “It’s hard to put your finger on it but United deserved to win in the end. “We were lucky to get the draw.” There were many questions to be asked in the wake of such a second half fadeout but the most predominant one is: what happened? “We just stopped, there is no other

way to describe it,” Barnett said. “You should never lose from there.” He made a point of emphasising his team had no excuses. “We’ve got to play four quarters each week,” he said. “It sounds so simple but there’s nothing else to say.” There were some positives to come from the game,Angus Martin stepping up from the reserves and playing good football, while Justin Brooks has also impressed the coach. Midfielder, Valor Thach, battled hard all day to win the medal for the most courageous player. As harsh as it sounds, Barnett will be ruthless with the selection axe this week in the pursuit of a consistent performance. “We’re going to make some changes as the efforts from some of the blokes weren’t up to it,” he said.

He put the acid on the club’s senior players to take that next step when called upon, and the soonest test will come against Mallala this weekend. Barnett was happy to back his team in but the players must want it bad enough if they are to get a win against the Magpies at the glorious Mallala oval. United will enjoy the weekend off, although the club will be holding a weekend training exercise to keep the momentum salvaged from Saturday’s game. The Tigers have also picked up strong-bodied 18-year-old, Robert McNamara-Jose, from Pinjarra in the Peel Football League, WA. Opitz said if both clubs can get some consistency on the field, it sets the year alight once more. “It’s good for competition to see we’re not too bad once we get going,” he said.

Best players: Two Wells - R.Coleman, N.Applebee, S.Barker, A.Cavallaro, T.Brown-Pichugin, S.Lange HW Eagles - C.Price, B.Manners, B.Sanderson, T.Thiele, Z.Zilm, D.Wright

FOR a relatively flightless bird, the Roosters are flying high at the moment, crowing loudly from top spot on the Adelaide Plains Football League ladder following a comprehensive 116-point belting of HummocksWatchman Eagles at Port Wakefield. Led by strongly-built forward, Andrew Hardiman (seven goals), Two Wells piled on early goals in a flurry of scoring shots during the first term. Despite having 12 pings at the sticks, the Roosters returned five goals, seven behinds, all seven of those behinds remarkably attributed to Lee Allmond. HWE were able to get a goal on the board amongst the chaos but following the first break, things went from bad to worse. Another five goals to one in favour of the Roosters put them more than nine goals up and they had all the momentum. The third quarter was a little more even before Two Wells finished with an authoritative nine-goal quarter to win in a canter. The only real concern for Roosters coach, Mark Thomson, was a hamstring injury scare to Lee Allmond, who went off the ground not long into the second term. However, it was later found Allmond was probably suffering from a severe cramp and was moving freely the following day. It capped off a great weekend for Thomson and his team, enjoying a spread of 11 goal kickers and an array of midfield rotations, which included Jared Allmond, who coasted through the centre and rested up forward, finishing with three goals. “We were able to get through a lot of rotations this week,” Thomson said. “Daniel Hines was also very good on a wing.”

ANZAC medallists for the HummocksWatchman v Two Wells matches, Simon Feast and Sarah Young. His team dominated the clearances as well in a scintillating performance. Ruckman, Simon Feast, collected the ANZAC day medal for the most courageous player. HWE coach, Nathan Young, was content to concede his team was well-beaten. “They’re a very good side, they run well and played well,” he said. “They played that way continuously for four quarters and it is a credit to them. “They should be up in the top two this

year, they’ve really improved I think.” Young was understandably disappointed with his side’s display. “We did give them the opportunity to play that well and they took it,” he said. Defender, David Oswald, and ruckman, Shaun Light, missed the match on Saturday, while Joel Wilson (hamstring) and Ryan Reid (hand) are under injury clouds. With the Eagles facing Balaklava this weekend, Young was keen to move his group on and focus on Saturday’s match. “We just have to go back to a few basics and try and regroup pretty quickly,” he said. “No one expects us to win after that result, so we’ve got nothing to lose. “We’ve just got to try and improve.” Two Wells were missing recruit, Rhys Oxenham and team leader, Tallan Leighton but Thomson expects both players to be up for selection this weekend against Virginia. “So we shouldn’t be too far off the mark,” he said. The match looms as a spiteful affair between rivals with something to prove. “We’re looking forward to it,” Thomson said.

up against the much bigger and more experienced Two Wells line-up. The match was a fairly one-sided affair, with Two Wells dominating all over the ground, except in the centre square with Jack Lu winning the centre bounces and feeding his

small onballers with the first use of the ball. The mercy rule was introduced at three quarter, with nine goals to one. In the final quarter, with the young Roosters giving the Eagles three of their players to even up play, the game improved.

Coe finished the year with 323 runs at an average of 24.85, with a highest score of 89. His bowling was also impressive, collecting seven wickets at 14.14 a piece.

before the bounce Round 4 preview with Les Pearson Virginia v Two Wells

A WINLESS Virginia host noisy neighbour, Two Wells, this weekend, in what is painted as a wickedly exciting contest. Greg Phillips’Rams would like nothing more than to knock the Roosters off of their perch, especially after two tough losses to Mallala and Balaklava earlier this year. Fresh off of the bye, Virginia should be looking at a full squad to pick from and Caleb Howell’s early season niggles should have reduced considerably over the break. Howell has been relatively well-held in his first two games, the star midfielder still able to find his share of the footy and kick some goals. n caleb Howell, Virginia

If he gets off of the leash this weekend, he could be the answer the Rams need to ensure they get their first win on the board. There’s not a lot going wrong at Two Wells. Thompson has his team up and about, playing great running football. The inclusions of Simon Feast and Jared Allmond have been godsends for them, coupled with some talented youngsters coming through, such as the Wise and Hines boys, and they Roosters have some nice balance. Tallan Leighton is a shot to play his first game of the year, while Rhys Oxenham will also be up for selection. These two teams traditionally hate each other’s guts. This weekend should be no exception. Virginia have the big men to go with Two Wells but the Roosters’ confidence and momentum will be hard to counter. The Rams will need to make a statement early.

some magic at some stage. For the Eagles, doubt looms over Joel Wilson and Ryan Reid, the two players who led the revival against United two weeks earlier. Defender, David Oswald, is a shot to come back in and Shaun Light was away last week. HWE would love him back. The Eagles’ new lads have been impressive so far, Scott Tregenza and Daniel Hendry showing they are capable footballers. If Wilson and Reid do miss, it will be up to those new players, and lads on the second tier, to step up in their absence. You can never rule out HummocksWatchman Eagles at home, so the Peckers will need to be at their best if they are to get the two points.

Mallala v Hamley Bridge

TWO second half fadeouts haunt Hamley Bridge this year as the Bombers head up the road to Mallala this weekend. After showing so much promise early in both matches, the Hamley lads have fallen on their own swords. Whether it is a sign of a team that doesn’t know how to win, or low on confidence, is up to interpretation. Mallala has had its share of injury concerns to key players, Jason Earl and Brad Hardie both missing from last weekend’s loss against Balaklava. With the bye coming up after the clash against the Bombers, both coach, Steve Lubcke, and those players with injury clouds, would be weighing up whether an extended break could be of benefit. Lubcke knows those two players are invaluable to his team and are certainly in his best 21, their long-term durability will be on his mind at the selection table. Speaking of selection tables, Bombers coach, Ash Barnett, has signalled changes to his team after the weekend’s shocking lapse, the team giving up a 43-point lead in the third term to end up drawing with United. By all reports, there are some players in the reserves keen to step up and it’s that desire to win and hunger for the contest Barnett wants from his charges. In previous seasons, Hamley have usually given Mallala a reasonable run for their money without necessarily getting the chocolates. Expect an exciting first half at least but the real focus will be on how well the Bombers perform across all four quarters.

THE Hummocks-Watchman Eagles boys will be disappointed with their showing on the weekend. Widely tipped as a chance to challenge Two Wells, they barely raised a whimper on their home dunghill. This weekend’s clash with rivals, Balaklava, offers a chance of redemption. Both teams tend to go up a notch for these games and expect nothing less on Saturday at Port Wakefield. Balaklava has a well-balanced lineup with a solid forward line, back line and versatile midfield.

SPORT v Netball

Courageous trio awarded Courtside with Merridy Manuel Players had the extra incentive of ANZAC medals on Saturday, awarded to the most courageous player. Congratulations to Balaklava GA Talia Kruger, Hamley Bridge GA Sarah Koch and Hummocks WD/C Sarah Young. Score lines were closer this week, perhaps showing teams are settling into the netball groove. At a glance, Peckers won by 12, Hummocks by nine and Hamley by six. The Balaklava girls must have felt well rested after the bye and were blazing in the first quarter, leading by nine at the break. “A brilliant start…,” com-

mented Pecker’s coach Tess Pollard, “But the match was very tight from then on.” Mallala coach, Katie Kreig feels her team was behind the eight ball in the first quarter, and during the break asked them to apply more pressure and attack harder. The girls complied and equalled Balak’s score in the second term. The third saw the Peckers pull away by a couple more but Mallala pegged them back by two in the last. Mallala’s tough captain and centre player Tracey Kennett came to blows, injuring her back and both ankles in the second quarter. She was taken to hospital at the

n HAMLEY A1 coach, Lee Barnett puts the pressure on Alicia Sharman, Long Plains. end of the game for scans. Katie was full of compliments for her team. “I think the girls worked beautifully together and supported each other well in a tough and fast game, responding well to adversity

and doing everything asked of them. “We showed that we were more than capable of matching Balaklava on the court.” A magnificent tussle between Balak GA Tahlia

Kruger and Mallala GD Carla Jarmyn, both best players for their teams. Final score Balaklava 66 to Mallala 54. Meanwhile, over at Hamley, Hamley’s coach and GD, Lee Barnett felt the team spent too much time on the defence. “It felt like we were losing the whole game and the ball seemed to be down our defensive end all the time.” Long Plains coach, Josie McArdle commented it was an even contest, in particular between the talls – Hamley Bridge GS Amber Rogers and Long Plains GK Emma Laintoll. Hamley played with the bare seven players, with A2 player Tanya Rademacher filling in at WD. New to Long Plains, Tori Doherty impressed the officials at WA. Lee Barnett won best player for Hamley, her second for the season. Hamley’s defensive pressured seemed to af-

fect Long Plains’ accuracy. Longies turned the ball over several times for the game but failed to convert. “Just a couple of minor mistakes for each quarter was enough to give Hamley the advantage,” said coach Josie. Final score Hamley 55 to Long Plains 49. The Hummocks girls had a tight match with Two Wells. Hummocks coach, Sam Nicholls gave credit to the Two Wells girls for sticking to their game. An interrupted warm-up resulted in a slow start with the Hummocks girls, up by two at the first break. Hummocks excelled in the second quarter, their best for the match, stretching their lead by a further five goals. The game ebbed and flowed in the last half, with Hummocks just sneaking in an extra goal in each. The final score Hummocks 43 to Two Wells 34. Bonnie Nicholls was

back at GD for Hummocks. Beth Reid started at centre but illness forced her to retire in the third, replaced by WA Sarah Young. Sarah went on to win best player, her second for the season. Two Wells GD Mia Darling also won her second best on court for the season. Sam Nicholls commended GK Claire Schulz for her performance. “She has really stepped up in the first two games this year after coming up to A1 from A2 and is working hard to implement things from training.” So, the Peckers have hit the lead. Will it be held for longer than Mallala? Admittedly it is only week three, but those Balaklava girls are becoming a force to be reckoned with. Time will tell during the 3pm “showdown” this weekend against Hummocks at Port Wakefield – I can hardly wait!

The Balaklava Shearing Shed Trophy drew 27 hairy, hard hitting hackers to the greensward last Saturday for a Stableford comp. played from the tiger tees. A powerful, potent, nay presidential performance by Bill Lokan (35 points) propelled him to the peak of the A Grade pile, plunging plumber Peter Thompson (33) down to 2nd. and nudging Wayne Nagle (31) to 3rd. That left Jim Breuer (28) and mighty Merv. Hameister (26) to wind up proceedings. From the huge dust cloud stirred up by the busy B Graders dashed a determined Dave Rodgers with 40 points, which bludgeoned Bill Berry (37) into 2nd. and larrup Geoff. Leo (36) to 3rd. As the dust settled slowly we saw certain ghostly shapes emerging: J. Curnow (35), M. Smith (34), A. Henstridge (33), Joan Anderson (31), J. Michael (31), D. Trickett (30), Patricia Anderson (29), S. Jonas (28), A. Manuel (24), R. Hahn (24), M. Jones (24) and D. Addison (22). The C Grade field was crushed by Greg Sonntag (35 points), who punished Peter Friedrichs’ 32 points and monstered Malcolm Liptrop’s 31. Left to deal with this aspirational incommodiousness were R. Campbell (30), G. Anderson (25) and R. Phillips (22). Malcolm Jones and Merv. Hameister both belted Birdies at the 3rd. while Dave Rodgers nailed one on the 15th. All Nearest The Pins were claimed, by Andrew Manuel at the 2nd., Malcolm Jones the 3rd., Merv. Hameister (8th), Jim Breuer (10th) and Dave Rodgers the 15th. This effort gained Dave Rodgers 6 Golfer of the Winter points, Bill Berry 5, Geoff Leo 4, Bill Lokan 3, Greg Sonntag 2 and the dregs, well they got one each. This Saturday we’ll contest the Balaklava Newsagency Trophy, a good old no-nonsense Stroke round to be galvanised by Geoff Leo, with gargle fluid to be dispensed by Graham ‘Emu’ Ackland at the 19th.

Saturday, April 28. Competition: Stroke Sponsor: Virginia Meat Store No of Players: 29 Conditions: Fine Congratulations to Adam and Kylie Bail on the birth of their daughter Abby on Friday 27th April. Nicely organised by Adam so he could still play golf. The first stroke round saw 7 players play under their par on a beautiful day for golf with a hint of some green stuff poking through here and there. The rest probably don’t want to see another stroke round soon. A Grade winner was Jake Bowden with a net 64, long drive, monthly medal, birdie ball and a meat tray. It was mentioned that he had a nice new ute to haul away all his booty. Runner up was Robert Hogg with 65 closely followed by Russell Grigg with 66 on a countback from Stuart Grigg. B Grade saw the return of Hans Linford with a net 65 and plenty of talk about current good form at recent masters events at Port Pirie from Andrew Baker continuing his excellent form with 67 and Ian Smith 68. John Boon would have been pretty happy with his 65 to take out C Grade from Bingo Barns 70 and Jim Weir 71. In the Ladies Elaine Grigg showed her liking for Two Wells after a summer at Highercombe with a very good 65 from Julie Holland 71. There have been plenty of positive comments about the condition of the scrapes and the consistency over all scrapes. Kudos to Bobby Hogg and his new piece

Balaklava will be hosting the first round of games with the Under 14s starting at 9.30am.

• From Page 1 Port Pirie CIB Detective Sergeant, Gavin Mildrum, said the suspects are between 150 to 160cm tall. (5ft 2in to 5ft 6in) He said there is a possibility the offenders could also be linked to other breaks in the Clare and Rhynie area in recent weeks. Balaklava and other Mid North towns suffered a spate of break-ins during September and October last year, when various businesses were raided. Police again warned business and home owners to ensure premises are locked and no cash or valuables left anywhere. Anyone with any information is encouraged to contact Bank SA Crime Stoppers on 1300 333 000 or the Port Pirie Police Station on 8638 4000.

In Memoriam

Ka r s t en - B r u c e . 1/05/2009. It as been 3 years since your death, yet it is still so fresh in my eyes your kids miss you everyday, but they speak of you daily, so you will always be remembered. We cherished 20 years of marriage, 4 beautiful children and we followed our dreams. It has been a challenge, we have had highs and lows during this journey of grief without you. We have become stronger and enjoy each day as we know too well how life can be taken away so quick. We miss you dearly and know you are around us to guide us through our next journey. You will always be a part of our lives. Love Anita, Hannah, Oliver, Tobias, Caleb xx

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 1992, 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.

A grade footballer, Lachlan Michael, was presented with the James P Woods Medal, while Talia Kruger received the Sister FR Casson Medal. Both are pictured receiving their medals from Balaklava RSL president, Peter Shaughnessy.

PRESSURE PACKED

Peckers claim hard-fought win WHAT was widely branded as match of the round between Balaklava and Mallala, actually turned out to be a scrappy affair in sun-bathed conditions on Saturday at Ralli Park, eventually won by Balaklava by 26 points. There is no doubt Steve Lubcke’s Magpies brought their high-pressure game with them, as did Balaklava, a soaring stoppage and tackle count pleasing only the midfield purists in the crowd. “It wasn’t an open, flowing game, that’s for sure,” Lubcke said. “Both sides were hard at it.” The first term was the main highlight for Peckers coach, Stuart Lamond. “I thought our first quarter was good with our pressure on the ball carrier and we started the game with

the Final Siren with Les Pearson

some intent,” he said. “It turned into a bit of a slog from there on in.” Balaklava got the scoreboard rolling with early goals before David Pontt hit back after earning a free kick about 40 metres out, finishing truly. Mallala had periods of great play in the second term, led by Christian Rimmer, picking up plenty of touches and a classy goal, while Joel Montgomerie was working hard too. n Continued page 16

SURROUNDED by black and red jumpers and a bellowing barrage of Bomber fans, United forward, Jamie McArdle, took a few deep breaths and lined up his shot at goal. With his team six points down, the final siren gone, McArdle’s set shot from about 30 metres out, tight in the pocket in front of a hill of Hamley Bridge fans going off their rockers, was their only shot at avoiding a loss for the Tigers. “Memories from the back yard as a child were flying through my mind,” McArdle recalled. “I couldn’t hear much, just a heap of noise.”

Kicking from a tight angle and with a slight breeze working across the face of goals, he approached the kick in deliberate fashion, striking a bending droppunt, which curved right through the centre of the big sticks for a goal. The ball’s arc was similar to McArdle’s inswing bowling during the summer, bringing the game to a dramatic draw, for the first time in his playing days. “It is definitely a highlight for the career so far,” he said. “It would have been nice if we were down that one point less.” McArdle, who finished with five goals, was an unlikely hero, after two leaner weeks playing in

a variety of positions. The nerve he showed was Tony Modra-esque, in honour of his childhood football hero. While Hamley Bridge coach, Ash Barnett, described the kick as a wobbling “Steven Kernahan punt”, he had no doubt it split the middle. United coach, Travis Opitz, praised the young player for his efforts after shifting him forward earlier in the match. “I put it on him, I told him ‘you’re a great player, you’ve got all the skills, you’ve just got to start proving yourself,” Opitz said. “What he did on the weekend, I was really proud of him.”
