STAR OF THE NORTH

WHAT A CHAMPION!

PORT Wakefield lawn bowler, Willie McPharlin, was crowned champion of the state Champion of Champions Singles tournament, held on Sunday at Marion Bowling Club. The 25-year-old won his club’s singles championship earlier last season and went on to win the Association and Regional Singles Champion of Champions events, defeating Balaklava’s Peter Thompson on both occasions. “Peter told me to enter in the state event and I was a bit undecided at first but he ended up convincing me and even entered my name

in the competition for me,” McPharlin said. The state event was in knockout format, attracting star bowlers from across South Australia. McPharlin said it was an extremely high

standard, featuring state representative, Scott Tholburn, who was knocked out of the competition by Grange bowler, Cam Dickinson. “It was a great competition with a lot of champions from around the state there,” he said. McPharlin then defeated Dickinson, before accounting for Brighton’s Darren Seigects. The state win now means McPharlin will be travelling to Queanbeyan in the ACT to take on the nation’s best singles champions in late October. nCONTINUED PAGE 2

BALAKLAVA MEETING DECISION:

Libs name Wakefield candidate

RICKI’s canter against cancer

SANFL identity, Tom Zorich, will lead the Liberal Party’s challenge at the 2013 Federal Election, winning pre-selection to become its candidate for the seat of Wakefield. He was pre-selected at a meeting of local Liberal Party members held on Saturday at Balaklava, defeating well-known Two Wells local, Kaye Boon. The former Central District Football Club president had an extremely successful tenure with the club and plans on taking that drive to succeed into Federal politics. His campaign philosophy is simple. “Plan to win,” Mr Zorich said. Returning economic stability to the electorate is one of his primary goals and having done so with Centrals, he believed his experience in lifting the club to its current glory will help. n Continued Page 6 MAKING a “mile for mum” were Ricki the horse, with Gail MacLucas-Whyte and Sophie Hamdorf, about to send a ballon skywards.– PICTURES: Abbie Tiller.

NOTEWORTHY event for Balaklava Museum as Roy and Norma Schopp have fun with a 1917 glockenspiel, which was played by Albert Underwood and presented to the museum by Dale Underwood while John Miels tries a banjo, once strummed by Roy Wood, father of local farmer Cameron Wood.

Museum’s own ‘moment in time’ Sally Crowther reports:

In 1974 the historical society changed its name as it became a branch of the National Trust and in 1975 moves were made to acquire the former Rechabite Hall on May Terrace. The second milestone marks the 35th anniversary of the official opening of Centenary Hall as the National Trust’s Balaklava branch Museum which was held during the Balaklava centenary celebrations in 1977. Affiliation with National Trust ceased

in 2004, but Balaklava Museum has continued to grow with a constant inflow of historic items and a volunteer membership of nearly 50. To honour the early members whose untiring efforts established the solid base on which the museum operates today, they will be formally naming the Margaret Gleeson Historical Records Room and the Grace Anders Memorial Music Room. Margaret is the only living foundation member of the original Historical Society. Officially proceedings begin at 1.30pm and visitors will be asked for aLF0178 gold coin Hayfield Ad_90x80.pdf 1 6/06/11 5:58 LF0178 Hayfield Ad_90x80.pdf 1 6/06/11 Hayfield Ad_90x80.pdf 1 6/06/11 5:58 PM 5:58 PM donation, with afternoon teaLF0178 available.

SUCCESS FOR VIRGINIA GROWER:

National award to Michael VIRGINIA market gardener Michael Vorrasi, 28, has been named Australia’s “Young Grower of the Year.” Michael, who grows gourmet lettuce and Asian vegetables, beat 13 other finalists from across the country to win the category at the AUSVEG National Awards for Excellence at its national convention attended by 2000 growers in Tasmania last weekend. “I’m very proud to have won this award, not just for myself, but for everyone in our business,” Michael said. “I encourage all young growers to get involved in the industry. “To help drive its future direction, this

industry needs leaders – and particularly young leaders. Michael, who sells his produce through South Australia’s wholesale market, Adelaide Produce Market, said having a strong passion for fresh produce, focusing on customer needs and producing quality produce in an environmentally-sustainable way might have given him the edge. Adelaide Produce Market was a finalist for the “Innovative Marketing Award” for its recent campaign to encourage people to consume more fresh fruit and vegetables through the independent retail sector.

When Balaklava Museum presents its 2012 SA History Festival event at Centenary Hall Museum on Sunday May 27, it will observe two significant milestones in the local museum’s history. Under the theme, “We Won’t Forget Our Founders,” it will mark 40 years since the Balaklava and District Historical Society was formed in 1972, with the aim of preserving local history in its written and photographic form. The move to establish a local history group came at the suggestion of Margaret Gleeson, a local teacher and district councillor at the time.

Mallala Museum held its “Dressed to the Nines” exhibition and open days earlier this month as part of the South Australian History Festival. There was an opportunity to be photographed in fashions from a bygone era – and Mallala resident Effie Baker, a local “youngster” in her 90s set the trend for others to follow, even donning white gloves for the photo! Tiina Pentinkorpi, (below) of Redbanks, also looks sensational in sepia tones.

Minister gets our ‘wish list’ LOCAL Government Minister, Russell Wortley, attended the Central Local Government Region (CLGR) quarterly forum at Ardrossan last Friday, along with mayors and chief executive officers from 15 councils across the region. The meeting considered issues around regional development, water, transport and planning and discussed the progress of several

ongoing projects and topical issues to the area. These included the regional coastcare project and opportunities for future funding, the CLGR’s recent submission to the Special Local Roads funding program and progress by the Regional Waste Coordinator on issues such as E-waste and options for collaborative effort by councils.

AT the CLGR meeting were (from left) Geoff Sheridan (acting CEO, Wakefield RC), mayor Paul Thomas (Copper Coast), Peter Harder (CEO Copper Coast), Darryl Ottens (deputy mayor Wakefield RC), Russell Wortley (Minister for State/Local Government Relations), Nigel Hand (CEO Burunga West), Ray Agnew (mayor Yorke Peninsula), Andrew Cameron (CEO Yorke Peninsula,) Dean Dolling (mayor Burunga West).

The draft stormwater management agreement between the State and local government was also discussed. With Wakefield Regional Council looking to develop both an integrated water management plan and stormwater management plan, this issue was particularly pertinent. WRC acting chief executive officer, Geoff Sheridan, said for a council to be eligible to receive funding support implementing a stormwater management plan, the catchment area must be at least 40 hectares. “A lot of smaller councils have difficulty meeting the guidelines set by the Stormwater Management Authority,” Mr Sheridan said. “The CLGR is putting in a submission in relation to this.” The hope is some form of contingency for small councils is developed, given 40ha is quite a large catchment area and was unlikely to suit smaller towns outside of the major regional centres or metropolitan areas. Updates on windfarm development, emergency management, council shared services activities, flood damage remediation works and the rollout of the national broadband network were also discussed at the meeting.

Did all mums have a nice Mother’s Day? I did, kick-starting the morning with a hot cup of real tea, brewed in our teapot, and a block of chocolate for brekky - shared, of course, with my five boys – that includes husband, Scott. Then we had a little campfire barbecue, and after months of waiting for the fire ban season to end - not that it’s rained yet, Toby finally got to use his camp-oven to cook some damper. This was then smothered wih jam and cream! All in all, a very relaxing day spent with my family. Isn’t motherhood a joy? But for most, especially first timers, it can be quite daunting. I can remember phoning the CAFHS hotline, often in the middle of the night, and usually more for reassurance than anything else. Now there’s another phone hotline available to mothers, that of the Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA), phone 1800 686 268. Last week, the ABA, formerly known as Nursing Mothers, celebrated “National Mothering WeekCelebrating Motherhood.” The ABA has been raising awareness of the importance of mothering through its celebrations since 1979. But even though there are plenty of babies and toddlers around SA, some ABA branches are closing down. Luckily the Balaklava branch is booming (must be something in the water) and organiser Narelle Michael is very happy about that. Narelle says “all mothers are very welcome to attend our get-togethers.” “We offer mums support, friendship and understanding, and it’s a great way to meet new people, share experiences and learn from each other,” she said. The group meets on the first Monday of each month at 10am at the Balaklava Uniting Church Hall. The group often has guest speakers, with Dietician Deb Butler speaking at the next gathering on June 4. If you’d like to know more about this group, please contact Narelle on 8863 3060.

• And where’s the rain? Some farmers have been madly sowing, blowing dust everywhere, especially on those horrid windy days we’ve had lately. Others are waiting patiently for rain. Maybe we could find 100 women who could do a rain dance in the nude, like they did in Nepal? Or not. Maybe we’ll leave that to the men of the district. Apparently Riverton’s Mick Connell, resident rain man Philip Shepherd of Balaklava, Mallala’s Ian Jenkin and Owen’s Andrew Parker are starters. Let me know of any others! Avon

The Christmas Festival, which runs from November 20 to December 8, has become so popular, especially with Adelaide groups, most days have already been booked. However the festival committee has advised Tuesdays are not as heavily booked and would encourage local groups to join with groups from other areas, and book a Tuesday. Bookings include a three-course lunch, tour of display, entertainment and afternoon tea. The Festival will only be open to the general public for one day, so keep an eye out for further details. For group bookings phone Jill on 88671 127. Dublin • Official opening of the Dublin History Group Research Centre is on Sunday from 1-4pm at the Institute. A monetary donation will include afternoon tea.

• The Senior Citizens group has been busy getting out and about. Next outing is the “Big Cuppa Lunch” at the Port Parham clubrooms on Tuesday, May 22. Bookings to Pat McCann. And don’t you just love bingo nicknames? Can you guess these numbers? Kellys’ eye, quack quack, big fat hen, clickety click and sunset strip. The next Bingo night is on June 7 at the Institute. Eyes down at 7.30pm sharp. Brinkworth

Get in the picture

• Brinkworth History Group would like to add to its already fantastic, but slightly out-dated, collection of farm and agricultural photos. The group has photos up to around 1990, but not many since. Check your albums or computers for more recent photos to add to the collection. • And seeing it’s Year of the Farmer, the group would also like to acknowledge the work of women on farms. So girls, you need to get on the other side of the camera and let the men start snapping. The Museum is open from 2-4pm on the first Sunday of the month. Tarlee • A horse event is on at the town oval this weekend. Maybe there’s a prospective Black Caviar there.

Budget health cuts worry Rural doctors The Rural Doctors Association of Australia (RDAA) is “very concerned” about additional cuts announced in last week’s Federal budget and is seeking urgent clarification. “The government has been trying to sell this budget as a big win for health, but we are worried about the devil in the detail on a number of fronts,” RDAA president, Dr Paul

Mara, said. “For starters, we are concerned at the government’s cuts to the GP immunisation incentive. “This flies in the face of the proven effectiveness of this incentive in encouraging the strong uptake of childhood immunisation in Australia, and can only lead to further imposts on general practice in providing this service. “And the government will

Tom Zorich named Wakefield candidate •From Page 1 “The club was in a diabolical position in 1999,” Mr Zorich recalled. “Myself and Les Stevens became involved in 2000 and the proof is in the pudding. Nine premierships, 13 grand final appearances and financial sustainability, we’ve been able to turn the club around in a massive way. “That’s what the challenge for all of us is – to make sure we get financial sustainability back into government.” Together with his family, Mr Zorich has operated Sportspower, JT Surf and other retail stores in Elizabeth, Gawler and Munno Para for more than 25 years and recently served as an elected member of the Gawler council. “I’m certainly going to have a close affinity with the local constituents, that’s the thrust of it all,” Mr Zorich said. “It’s early days but I’m passionate about ensuring the constituents of Wakefield are no worse off compared to anywhere else in Australia, so we’ve got to make sure that our local economy improves.” He said issues affecting the Wakefield residents are wide-ranging and widely variable, but looked forward to hearing those concerns during his pre-election campaign. “I would be certainly pursuing their interests in Canberra,” Mr Zorich said. Making the shift between local government and Federal elections is

no small step but it was one Mr Zorich was confident he could make. “Principally, I spoke to some people who I am very close to in the party and they gave me some good feedback and the confidence to move forward and be a nominee for the pre-selection,” he said. “It’s been a bit of a journey for me because I realised there was a real opportunity to make a change – and Wakefield needs to be won to help the Liberal party gain government nationally. “That’s really one of the many things I had in my mind. I can make a difference between winning and losing.” Incumbent Member for Wakefield, Nick Champion, through an open letter to the media, challenged Mr Zorich to declare whether he supported the Federal government’s plan to produce two new models at Holden Elizabeth, or supports opposition leader, Tony Abbott, and his plan to cut automotive co-investment. Mr Zorich explained he had not had any contact with Mr Champion and was yet to see the letter. “When I see the letter and its context, I will make a response,” he said. “But let me say this; my parents worked at Holden for more than 30 years, so I know it is a very important part of the local community.” The Federal election must be held by November 30 next year.

Snowtown charges ahead Another 90 turbines in windfarm expansion

TURBINES spin at the current Snowtown windfarm. To gain a perspective of the size of the turbines, a van (circled) can be seen at the base of the turbine in the foreground.

Taste of friendship

CLEAN energy production in the district will be boosted by a massive expansion of TrustPower’s existing 100-megawatt wind farm at Snowtown. The company announced it had concluded a number of conditional agreements that have significantly advanced its plans for the expansion. TrustPower has entered into a power sale and purchase agreement for the output of Snowtown II with Origin Energy, which already has a purchase agreement for 89 per cent of the Snowtown I facility. The Snowtown II wind farm, as the expansion will be known, will be located adjacent to the existing Snowtown I facility and includes 90 turbines with an installed capacity of 270MW. Wakefield Regional Council acting chief executive officer, Geoff Sheridan, said the announcement of the expansion was great news for the district. “The Snowtown community has been very supportive and approved of this in 2010,” he said. It also presented a great opportunity to add economic benefits to the region, a chance too good for a small council to deny without any great rhyme or reason.

SET for soup (from left) Julie Hayes, pastor Carel Haasbroek, Tania Sandery and Paul Flint. AS winter approaches, the soup season arrives and so does the soup and social afternoons at Balaklava Church of Christ centre. Former chef, Julie Hayes, assisted by Tania Sandery, started the soup kitchen last year as a way to bring people together. Balaklava Church of Christ Pastor, Carel Haasbroek, said the afternoons attracted a range of people last year. “There are a lot of people in the community who are single or lonely, as well as families who want to join and gather together,” he said. Julie started running the soup kitchen out of her own pocket but the church began to support it soon after. “She just wants to provide a service to the community, using our facilities,” Pastor Haasbroek explained. He said Julie was weighing up doing it again this year and recently decided to get the apron on again, after the success of last year. “It went really well,” Pastor Haasbroek said. “It was slow in

the beginning but it got going as it became known amongst the people in the community. “I think a lot of people perhaps thought this is the church’s way of getting people to the church, but that’s not really the idea. “Julie was really concerned about the community in Balaklava and for the people who are lonely. People started to join in and enjoy the company, and the soup. “We did discuss doing it in the Triangle this year but the practicality of it was just too hard, so maybe next year.” The soup kitchen is open Sundays from noon until about 6pm, starting from May 27 and running until August. “People enjoy themselves, they chat and just enjoy it,” Pastor Haasbroek said. “The soup is exceptional as well. “It’s an open invitation, anyone can come along and catch up over a cup of delicious soup.”

Les Pearson reports: “From council’s perspective, there’s only a few sites around South Australia suitable for wind farms and this is one of them,” Mr Sheridan said. “We’re not like other councils, as we don’t have the complaints of the noise.” He said locals had raised some issues regarding road quality in the area during the construction phase and council would have to address that. It was one small deterrent in an otherwise exciting development. “This development is being constructed at an enormous cost, so it’s a massive investment being built in the district and people will be staying locally and spending money in the area,” Mr Sheridan said. “In general terms, TrustPower is also a good corporate citizen.” The local wind farm workforce is expected to boom from nine to 50. Under the terms of a new 15 year agreement, Origin will be supplied with 100 per cent of the output and Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), with the agreement expected to take effect in 2014 following the wind farm’s construction and commissioning. A TrustPower spokesperson said the company was pleased to have the support of the local community for this expansion, which will further cement the positive relationships established with the Snowtown Lions Club and the establishment of the TrustPower Snowtown Lend a Hand Foundation four years ago. TrustPower chief executive, Vince Hawksworth, said the Australian government’s commitment to the 20 per cent by 2020 policy directly resulted in the building of Snowtown I, and now looks likely to make another sustainable leap forward with the building of Snowtown II. “We believe continued support of the Renewable Energy Target will result in further investment to achieve the policy objective,“ he said. “As part of our broader strategy, TrustPower is pursuing additional opportunities in Australia because of that. “ It is intended Snowtown Stage II will be split into two separately metered wind farms, 144MW, which will be owned by TrustPower and 126MW by a co-investor. TrustPower will be the operator for the total Snowtown wind farm site under a long term management services arrangement. The company is currently running a selection process to identify a co-investor and hopes to make an announcement within the next few months.

NEWS v District n NOT MUCH FOR FARMERS, BUT FAMILIES BENEFIT n

Budget ‘helps our cost of living’ LOCAL FOCUS

GENERAL

A

SURPLUS Federal Budget was announced last week, with some national funding programs to health and transport sectors extended but also several cuts announced across a number of areas, as expected. Federal Member for Wakefield, Nick Champion, was happy to announce the government’s “cost of living relief” payments as part of “benefits from the mining boom”. “The budget will spread the benefits of the mining boom to help everyday Australians with cost of living pressures” Mr Champion said. In Wakefield, about 13,250 will receive $410 for each child in primary school and $820 for each child in high school as part of the new Schoolkids Bonus. Family payments will increase by up to $600 for more than 17,000 local families from July next year, as extra support for families currently receiving Family Tax Benefit Part A payments. The Budget also allocated extra money to help pay the bills to 17,567 local young people, single parents and the unemployed currently receiving allowances. Singles will receive a $210 lump sum payment while couples will receive $350. Mr Champion added local business could benefit from new tax relief thanks to the government’s new Loss Carry-Back initiative. Businesses are currently able to carry forward their tax losses to offset future profits and reduce future tax liabilities. The new initiative will allow businesses to also ‘carry back’ their losses, to offset past profits and get a refund of tax previously paid on that profit. “We’re also returning the budget to surplus, on time, as promised,” Mr Champion said. “Returning to surplus gives the Reserve Bank maximum flexibility to cut interest rates further, just like they did last week.”

AGRICULTURE THERE was little room available for free spending in agriculture, a surprise to some, considering 2012 is Australian Year of the Farmer. South Australian Farmers Federation (SAFF) president, Peter White, was disappointed the Budget did not significantly recognise and contribute to the future growth and success of the agriculture sector. “We’ve long suspected agriculture just isn’t on the government’s agenda and this Budget confirms it,” Mr White said. He touched on a few positives arising from the Budget announcement. “I guess we need to be thankful that the diesel fuel rebate was not cut,” Mr White said. Increased funding for biosecurity and for continuing the Caring for our Country program were also announced. “There is no increase funding for research and development, very little funding for developing a new drought policy, and support for the Murray Darling Basin has been put on hold,” Mr White added. The government has committed to continue funding rural financial counselling and the Australian Centre for Plant Functional Genomics at the Waite Campus, despite rumours both would be cut.

HEALTH

AGED care was predominantly the big winner, with the announcement of $3.7 billion in aged care reform. The National Rural Health Alliance declared the Federal Budget promises good news on three fronts: dental care, aged care and disability services but called for follow-up action on promises. “For the news to be confirmed there will need to be ongoing government commitment, wide ranging consultation and the allocation of substantial extra resources as soon as fiscal conditions permit,” NRHA

executive director, George Gregory said. The Australian General Practice Network (AGPN) raised concerns after primary health care was overlooked and called for a ramp up of expenditure to support the recently established Medicare Locals. Rural Doctors Association of Australia (RDAA) also slammed the Budget, claiming the government has done little to address several issues, including the Australian Standard Geographical Classification – Remoteness Areas (ASGC-RA) system policy. The RDAA also wanted a reverse of the government’s decision to cut after-hours incentives from the Practice Incentives Program from July next year and demanded an amendment to the Districts of Workforce Shortage (DWS) regime so it better reflects the reality of doctor shortages in rural Australia.

TRANSPORT

A FUNDING package of $4.1 billion over the next four years was announced to assist local councils to maintain and upgrade local roads under an extension of the Roads to Recovery Program until 2019. It totals about $150m in local road funding to SA Councils from 2014 to 2019. With the program due to expire at the end of next financial year, the government has agreed to extend the program for a further five years, supplementing the support councils under the Financial Assistance Grants Scheme. Local Government Association of SA president, Kym McHugh, said such funding was vital to communities across the state. “$31 million a year for another five years into the future is fantastic news and councils will welcome it,” he said. The Budget also included a $4 million to extend the Seatbelts on Regional School Buses program for another four years and $4.7 million to eliminate another 23 dangerous black spots on the state’s roads.

JENNA shows her pharmacy awards.

Jenna’s formula for a top career THE sky is the limit for former Balaklava resident Jenna Koch, after graduating from university where she completed Honours in a Bachelor of Pharmacy and earned the highest GPA (Grade Point Average) in pharmacy for each year of her study. Jenna, 22, received the Pharmaceutical Gold Medal, which is awarded to the student who has the highest GPA and has completed the program in four years. She also received the University of South Australia Honours medal for the Division of Health Sciences for 2011, which was for the student who received the highest honours mark. “I still can’t believe I won. It has been a lot of hard work, but this really makes it worth it in the end,” Jenna said. Jenna is now completing a year internship at Royal Adelaide Hospital, before she will become a fully qualified pharmacist.

Sally Crowther reports: “This year I spend time rotating through working in the hospital dispensary, the production department and also clinical work,” she said. Jenna also works the occasional Saturday at Balaklava Chemplus. With her study days over, Jenna is unsure whether she will remain in the city or return to her roots in Balaklava. “I really love the country lifestyle, and the country sport, but I haven’t decided what I want to do next year,” she said. With the relief of university study behind her, Jenna is looking to travel next year before she gets into the industry she is so passionate about. “I have always wanted to work in the health care industry where I am able to help people,” Jenna said. “ Pharmacy is really challenging. You are always learning something new.”

n SAFF WANTS CODE OF PRACTICE UPDATED:

Farm machinery plea THE South Australian Farmers Federation (SAFF) is calling for an immediate revision of the code of practice for moving farm machinery on roads. SAFF president, Peter White said the revision was needed for all sizes of machinery. “And with newer, more advanced machinery there now is much more night work and the need for night travel,” Mr White said. “Also needed is a simple procedure manual setting out requirements when farmers need to move farm machinery on roads. “The State government continually talks about increasing production – and the State’s Strategic Plan has as one of its targets to treble the value of exports. “Restrictions need to be minimised for the State’s farmers to achieve increased production.” Liberal MP for Goyder, Steven Griffiths, raised this issue in the Plains Producer earlier this month. Mr Griffiths has contacted government Transport and Police Ministers about the problem.

SAFF called for a new code of practice that adopted a “common sense approach” which was not cost prohibiting and could be practically followed. “If farmers are not following the correct procedures this may void their public liability if there was an accident,” Mr White said. “While SAFF’s Transport Committee has been working with the Department of Planning, Transport on this issue, the process needs speeding up,” Peter said. SAFF member John Kennett, from near Kadina, has been lobbying extensively to highlight the immediate problem of being able to move an air-seeder on roads between his paddocks when it is “oversize” – greater than 7.5 metres in width and greater than 30 metres in length. Eventually he accessed a three month permit after filling out the appropriate forms and getting clearances from his local councils. The forms were Form A “Application for Vehicle Listing – Self Propelled Vehicle” and Form B “Application for a Per-

Plains Producer, Wednesday May 16, 2012

mit”, while the clearance from local councils was based on an assessment of the amount of roadside vegetation. In addition to these requirements to get a permit for this size, Mr Kennett also discovered the need for the escort vehicle to carry a copy of the “Escorting Guidelines for oversize and overmass vehicles and loads” but not the Gazette Notice.

HOW to move big machinery?

Councils brace for corruption ‘watchdog’ THE State Government will introduce legislation to create an Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC). ICAC would identify and investigate corruption in public administration, including councils, as well as working to prevent and minimise corruption or mal- administration. The legislation will give ICAC substantial powers to gather evidence and compel witnesses to answer questions. While the ICAC will be completely independent of government, the Bill includes several important measures to ensure accountability and transparency for such an important and highpowered investigative body. Wakefield Regional Council (WRC) acting chief executive officer, Geoff Sheridan, believed the new commission could act as a deterrent to issues like conflict of interest, a matter which was recently the subject of a report by State Ombudsman, Richard Bingham. “I think it would give councils more power to prevent these sorts of things from happening,” he said. The notion of an ICAC has been discussed at length around local government circles but Mr Sheridan said there were fears it could be used for the wrong reasons, such as frivolous corruption claims following minor disagreements. Local Government Association president, Kym McHugh, echoed these thoughts. “We sought from the government a structure to protect the presumption of innocence of people against unfair allegations,” he said. “We are reassured the ICAC Commissioner would have to

consider the effect on a person’s reputation and the capacity of a public statement to unfairly damage a person’s reputation. “We have to remember our council members are voluntary servants of their communities and their reputations and those who sit on Development Assessment Panels must be protected from unfounded allegations.” Mr McHugh said the introduction of a uniform code and an investigatory role for the Ombudsman, would also signify to council members that behavioural issues, while a far cry from issues to be dealt with by the ICAC, were disruptive and inappropriate. Local Government Minister, Russell Wortley, said the commission would help restore confidence to the public sector. “The ICAC is an important reform that will help to build greater trust in all tiers of government, trust that is integral to the community’s relationship with the public sector,” he said. “The legislation will impact on the Local Government Act, as it establishes new processes for investigating maladministration, misconduct and, in the worst case scenario, corruption. “I encourage all elected councillors and council staff to have a look at the governance discussion paper that was released in March.” He encouraged feedback for the new legislation. “We have extended the deadline for comments until the end of this month, so councils can share their views on the possible content of these codes,” Mr Wortley said. The ICAC legislation will be discussed at a forum on Thursday, June 7.

THE State government is looking to bury confusing and varying regulations at cemeteries, burial grounds and similar facilities, with new legislation to provide a single line of regulations across the state. Attorney-General, John Rau, released a draft Bill to provide a new level of consistency and clarity for laws governing burial and cremation in South Australia. The government wants public comment about the draft legislation, which could impact on local councils which manage cemeteries across the region. Wakefield Regional Council acting chief executive officer, Geoff Sheridan, said the issue was yet to be discussed by the Local Government Association. “I haven’t received any feedback from the LGA about it yet,” Mr Sheridan said. He said it was likely LGA would be involved in developing the legislation in the near future and from there, the impact on council’s operations, if any, would be clearer. Various cemeteries are spread throughout the Adelaide Plains and Wakefield regions. Many are small but continue to be used by families with a link to the area where the cemetery is located. One of the Bill’s key goals is to ensure people have a clearer understanding of their rights in relation to the interment of their loved one’s remains. Mr Rau said the draft legislation would require authorities to provide people with a plain English description of their inter-

ment rights, including the right to renewal. “Burial authorities will be able to issue interment rights for a specified period, or in perpetuity, although it will be up to each cemetery to decide whether they are able to offer a perpetual right,” Mr Rau said. “The Bill will also provide greater clarity about the renewal of interment rights. The legislation says an authority must renew interment rights for a period of five years or more if the holder of the right makes an application and pays the fee.” The Bill will also bring the law up to date with the latest practices in the disposal of human remains. The current legislation only contemplates burial or cremation, but there has been a recent trend towards environmentally friendly methods of disposal, such as ‘natural’ burial. In natural burial, the body is prepared for burial or interment without chemical preservatives and a shroud or biodegradable casket is used. At the moment, burials and cremations are governed by a variety of Acts and regulations. The new Bill will create a single Act to regulate the industry, including the management and establishment of cemeteries and crematoria, the closure and conversion of cemeteries, and the re-use of interment sites. “I encourage anyone with an interest to read the Bill and provide me with their comments,” Mr Rau said. The draft Bill can be viewed online at www. yoursay.sa.gov.au

Why buy a purebred? Responsible breeders can tell you that the purebred dog is far more predictable as to its temperament, behaviour, appearance, size and even colour than a crossbred dog. Purebred dogs are the result of many years of selective breeding. All breeds were developed for a specific purpose and documentation is available on their history and heritage. When you buy a purebred puppy you will know what to expect in the adult dog. Knowing the characteristics and attributes of a purebred dog enables you to narrow down the choices to those which best fit into your lifestyle. Responsible breeders have the experience to give puppies the care and nurturing they need at critical early stages – the puppy will be healthy and much less likely to develop into a difficult adult. Responsible breeders will provide background about the breed and discuss the characteristics of the adult dog. You should receive a documented history of the puppy and you will be able to see one or both parents or other family members. Breeders will give you guidance about proper care and feeding, health issues and training. They are there to help you as your puppy grows into adulthood.

Still room for you at Two Wells

Two Wells CFS members are still struggling to recruit new members but are forging ahead with plans for a membership drive to boost numbers in a bid to save services in the town. Brigade captain, Adam Harris, said dwindling numbers meant some services might be restricted and response times lengthened, if new blood wasn’t signed up soon. “We are frustrated at the moment,” he said. “If we can just get a few more members it will help out a lot.” At the end of March the group held an information session near the town oval, but Adam said it was disappointing not much interest was shown by residents. “It was disappointing that we didn’t have a bit more interest (but) people can expect us to be a bit more active in the next month or two as far as recruiting goes.” Earlier this month state CFS volunteer support officer, Aaron Hughes, met with Two Wells CFS training officer, Michael Howell, and Adam to plan a recruitment strategy. Adam said while Mr Hughes did not have any answers to the immediate problem and had praised the brigade on their efforts so far, he had vowed to put together a plan of attack for recruiting new people. In the meantime, Two Wells CFS members are considering door knocking homes in the area and putting together fliers and information packs to distribute around the district. “We’ll probably also have an open training session where people can come and have a bit of familiarisation with the brigade,” Adam said. “It would give interested people a chance to have a go before committing.” If you can help out Two Wells CFS in any way, or are interested in joining, contact brigade captain, Adam Harris, on 0413 237 036.

Building a Royal reputation AFTER years of continuous upgrades and investment, the Royal Hotel in Balaklava is steadily evolving into a fine establishment. The hotel has been owned and managed by the Friedrichs family, Peter, his wife Sue, and son, Derek, since taking over on November 19, 2007, having run the Milang hotel for about two years before. Peter said family members have their own responsibilities; his is predominately running the front bar. It has taken years to get the hotel to where it is today, with painting, renovations and regular improvements, including the building of the beer garden and outdoor dining areas, ongoing since taking over about four years ago. “It was a bit rundown and needed some work. This was the attraction to buy the hotel – and we could get it freehold, which was a real bonus,” Peter said. “We had a plan before we got here of what needed to be done.” Further improvements are still on the

Rams make Tigers pay • From back page The Rams’work rate also fell away. “We had at least 20 tackles in each quarter, except for the second, when we only had eight,” Phillip said. “Often, if you lose the tackle count, you lose the match, so I think it’s a good stat for the club to take.” The lead was three goals at the major break and United came out and kicked the first goal of the third quarter to get within 12 points. It was as close as the Tigers would get. “Simon Schulz came off with a badly sprained ankle and he had been doing a good job on Caleb Howell, but then Howell got off of the leash,” Opitz said. Howell slammed on three quick

REPORT: Les Pearson goals in succession to put the match beyond the Tigers’ reach. It was only a brief lapse in consistency from United but it was enough for the Rams to take an unassailable lead. “They made us pay in the space of 10 minutes,” Opitz said. A further six goal to two final term in favour of the Rams rounded out and emphatic victory with a big margin. Full forward, Brendon Niklaus, slammed on eight goals on the back of six from last week, while Troy Wilkey also backed up his form. “I thought Brendon looked strong up forward,” Phillips said.

n united coach, Travis Opitz fires up his side during the three quarter time break.

“He’s probably back to his best up there.” Salisbury North recruit, Michael Hay, played well at centre half forward in his first game for the club. Virginia were missing Marek Sajewicz and Ben Galic through injury, meaning the Rams had several players come up from the reserves, including Steve and Terry Lioulios and Con Mylonopoulos. “I thought the lads coming up from the reserves played really well,” Phillips said. Defender Emmanuel Tsimiklis bobbed up with two goals from the half back flank. He has not been training due to work commitments, Phillips confident he can add another level to his game once he can resume training. The coach has set his team the goal of winning the next two games to be at four wins and two losses. “At the end of the minor round, we could have three sides on two losses,” Phillips said. “Our goal was to finish top but we’re a bit behind the eightball a bit, chasing Balaklava.” It makes the coming weeks especially important if the Rams want to be within reach of a top two finish. Selecting fit players is one area

n virginia’s Emmanuel Tsimiklis holds onto the ball, however Tiger Ross Sharer secures the mark. he has focussed his attention, with a few ongoing niggles bothering a few in his squad. “If they don’t pass the fitness test or train fully on Thursday night, they rule themselves out,” Phillips said. “We’re trying to set a professional level and standard, and I think the players understand that.” Phillips also mentioned the club filling up for after match presentations following away games, unheard of when he first arrived at the club. A lot of youngsters are also amongst those getting around the club,

boosting junior numbers. For United, there is more work ahead for a team playing catch-up after a lean off-season. “It’s really apparent to me we’re seeing the effects of a non-committed preseason, so we’ve got to catch up and really work hard,” Opitz said. “We’re competitive in patches but we can’t maintain it, so we’re going to have to work hard to get results.” A two and half hour session last weekend, while having the bye, was part of that catch-up work. One big positive, literally, has been the form of ruckman Will Banton. Banton has been a bustling footballer for the Tigers over and extended stretch, leading the club’s big man department. “He’s been fantastic actually,” Opitz said. Continuous work at training has helped develop some midfield plays that have been working well on match day but the results at the end of the day haven’t been going the way of the Tigers. An opportunity to knock off the reigning premiers again presents. “Hopefully we can get 21 committed players this weekend and be competitive for the four quarters,” Opitz said.

Peckers rule roost Balaklava turns it around for a 12-point win A FIRST quarter blitz from Two Wells had the home crowd crowing against Balaklava on Saturday but it was the Peckers who ended up recording a hard-fought 12-point win in a see-sawing contest. The Roosters started with a bang, piling seven goals from 13 scoring shots in the first term, compared to Balaklava’s comparatively meagre one goal and one behind. Ruckman Simon Feast was the early catalyst, giving the Two Wells midfielders first possession and the forwards benefited from plenty of inside 50s, Andrew Hardiman booting three of his four goals in the first quarter. Things were noticeably flat in the Peckers camp at the first change. “At quarter time, things weren’t quite working as we thought they might have,” Balaklava coach Stuart Lamond said. “I was disappointed with our effort but credit to Two Wells, they played well, moved the footy well, their forwards were hard to match up on and their midfield was right on top.” Two Wells coach, Mark Thomson, was also impressed with the first term. “The first quarter was some of the best footy we’ve seen for quite some time,” he said. Amongst the carnage, Balaklava captain, Hayden Walker, was sent off by a field umpire lase in the quarter and when Simon Feast booted a great goal from tight in the pocket about 45 metres out, the Roosters were up and about. Lee and Jarred Allmond, Tallan Leighton, Dylan Wise, Ben Spiteri, Feast and Hardiman were all prolific early. Facing a 39-point deficit early on is any coach’s nightmare. “From my point of view, my first thought was to get our backline structure sorted out, as we didn’t quite get that right from the start of the game,” Lamond said. “The biggest thing for me is for us to be down by that margin at quarter time, none of us thought we were out of it. “We just had to chip away at it and that’s what we did really.” The Peckers pecked away at that margin in the second quarter, although it was at least half way through the term before they scored a goal after a string of behinds. The return of Walker in the second quarter was well-timed. “He was absolutely outstanding for us when he came back on,” Lamond said. “It seemed like a bit of a turning point for us.” Two Wells responded soon after through Hardiman but Balaklava added another four goals to peg the margin back to 10 points at the main break. “Balaklava got their match ups sorted out and slowed the game down well,” Thomson said. Glenn Dawson and Jonathon Brice began to find more of the footy in the Peckers’ forward line, while Max Doherty and Lachy

Michael were winning the ball in close. Dawson’s third term was dynamic, taking some great grabs and kicking goals, helping the Peckers build a lead. “Glenn’s second and third quarters were outstanding with his second and third efforts and pressure acts to cause turnovers, he was excellent,” Lamond said. “There’s a confidence in our group, not just in him (Dawson) but in our whole forward line, that if we get enough ball in there, we can take the chances and make it hard for opposition defenders to match up on.” A crumbed goal to Wise helped keep Two Wells in touch but the Roosters had leaked 12 goals to two after the first quarter.

When Doherty sharked a Feast tap and kicked Balaklava’s first and only goal for the final term, the task was just too much for the Roosters, despite two late goals to Jarred Allmond, who was shifted forward. Recruited defenders, Sam O’Brien and Anthony Pontt, worked hard all day, as did Brad Fitzgerald deeper in defence. “We needed two quality defenders this year and both Sam and Anthony have stood up,” Thomson said. Feast was also stellar. “He’s got a lot of footy left in him at country level,” Thomson added. Despite giving up the early lead, the Roosters’ coach was content with his young side’s efforts. “No one has been able to get close to Balaklava this year, so from that perspective, I was happy with the end result,” he said. Plenty of goal kicking practise during the week also paid dividends, the Two Wells forwards on fire early. “I was happy with that on the weekend, although I would have liked more shots at goal,” Thomson added. There were some injury concerns for Two Wells, with Bryce Hart coming off with a knee injury in the second quarter, while Pontt sustained a broken arm early in the last quarter and will probably miss up to three weeks. The Roosters venture to Mallala coming off the bye this weekend, a win important to both clubs. “It would keep us in touch with the top two,” Thomson said. “Mallala are a quality side and they seem to be getting better and better every week.” Balaklava face United in a danger match for the Peckers, having been rolled by the Tigers in the corresponding fixture last year. “The competition is pretty tight, any team you come up against can give you a scare,” Lamond said. “I’ve got a lot of respect for United and when they get it right, they’re hard to match up on. “We just have to continue in the way we’re going and keep trying to improve each week.” Walker is to face the tribunal Wednesday night, facing a possible two-week suspension.

Schahinger rucks for Roosters • From back page “In the trial games he was a bit rusty but he’s gradually worked his way into the season and become an important part of the team,” Brooks said. After initially rotating off the bench, Schahinger now works in tandem with fellow reserves ruckman, Kyall Renshaw. “It would be unkind to say he is a back-up ruckman,” Brooks said. “They’ve been taking it in turns really.” His biggest step forward came towards the end of the trial games, when gifted the opportunity to lead the ruck. “It really got his confidence up and he revelled in the role,”

Brooks said. Schahinger’s statistics have been modest but at the same time, promising, averaging close to 10 disposals and three marks per game. His most important work is giving the Roosters’ onballers first use of the footy and with an average of about 16 hitouts per game so far, it would appear he is certainly doing his fair share. Brooks said the club was willing to support Schahinger throughout his ongoing development, with an aim to bring him up to league standard, as it does with every player on its senior list. “He’s just like a number of young lads we have at the club

Plains Producer, Wednesday May 16, 2012

we’re looking to develop and see how far they can go,” he said. “If Justin keeps persisting and continues to do the hard work, the opportunity might come up at the right time. “It’s just a case of Justin coping with the workload and so far, he’s done it all himself to be fair to him.” One major adjustment Schahinger has had to make is getting used to switching between rucking duties and resting in the forward pocket. Given his role at the Bombers was to ruck all day, it is an understandably unusual position he finds himself in. “It can be hard to adjust

coming from doing it all in a lower competition to putting in short stints at a higher intensity,” Brooks said. Schahinger will be working with coaches on his positioning in the forward line over coming weeks, although there is a small issue with his kicking technique to also address. “He has an unusual kicking style but he still seems to slot them through alright,” the coach laughed. Overall, Brooks was pleased with the ruckman’s efforts to date. “There’s still a bit of work to do but I’m very happy with him and the way he fits into the reserves side at the moment,” he said.

HAMLEY Bridge recorded its first win for the year against Hummocks Watchman Eagles at Hamley on Saturday, remarkably turning around a 27-point deficit at half time to record a 14-point win. It was in contrast to previous matches, where the Bombers have led against both Two Wells and United, only to be overrun in the second half. For Hamley Bridge coach, Ash Barnett, it didn’t matter how they won it. “We broke the drought, that’s the main thing,” he said. Nathan Young, who came out from surgery to repair a dislocated wrist during the week, coached the Eagles from the sidelines. They also welcomed Joel Wilson back into the team, as well as the experienced Ryan Reid. It was a fairly even opening stanza, with four goals apiece, before HWE put the afterburners on in the second term, kicking seven goals to three. Eagles full forward, Matthew Bryant, was particularly potent early, capitalising on his opportunities with accurate finishing. The clean skills and momentum from HWE was a throwback to a bygone era. It was a grim prospect for Barnett, looking for a lift from his charges at half time. On the back of recent form, he could have been forgiven if he wasn’t expecting much. “I just told them ‘I’ve got no tricks left in my bin, you’re going to have to do it yourselves’,” Barnett said, rather candidly. What the exact words were, only the players would know but whatever was said, worked. “We had a few blokes outside of our big name recruits really step up,” Barnett said. Tom Smith, defender, Gavin Branson, Lachy Norman andAngus Lemmon were all singled out by the coach for their efforts. “They must have thought it’s either do or die, and they just lifted,” Barnett said. Nathan Flynn’s prowess finally came to the fore, the big centre half forward stamping his authority on the match with a bag of six goals. “It was Flynn’s best game for us too,” Barnett added. “It just looked like his legs freed up a bit.” Some massive goals from outside the 50 metre arc probably gave most spectators at the ground an indication Flynn’s legs were freed up as well. Shane Hanson at full forward also

REPORT: Les Pearson chipped in with four goals. Hanson has been used in various positions in recent weeks, including a stint at centre half back against Mallala last weekend. He clearly relished being back at the right end of the ground. “It showed if we get the ball in quick and often enough, we have the forwards to take those opportunities,” Barnett said of his two key goal kickers. Former local, Ryan Appleton, contributed a tough, gutsy game in the clinches as well. “He was a four-quarter contributor who battled hard and put his body on the line,” Barnett said. So, where have the Bombers been going wrong in the earlier rounds? Players getting to ‘know’one another understandably continues to be a factor but game style has been another issue. “Our skill level was much better, plus we rolled the dice and took some chances,” Barnett said. By throwing caution to the wind, the Bombers were able to take the game on and with the bye coming up, it gives the players plenty of time for that message to sink in and an extra week to enjoy the win. The fundraiser for Ryan Ellis, a youngster with Leukaemia, also turned out to be a great night, Barnett now sporting a cracking peroxide blonde hairdo and Ryan Appleton’s beard shaved off, all for the cause. The Bombers return from the bye to take on Balaklava and Virginia. “It’s a big challenge for us and win, lose or draw, we’re going to need to be competitive in those games,” Barnett said. As for HWE, the challenges keep getting bigger, hosting Virginia at Port Wakefield this weekend. With Rams forward Brendon Niklaus in form, it looms as a danger match for the Eagles. Eagles fans would take heart seeing Loxton North recruit, Tim Theile, getting in the club’s best players on Saturday. Shane McGuinness also provided a solid supporting role for Simon Price in the ruck, while former Eagles, David Barnes, has been stellar around the stoppages. Despite having barely so much as a training run behind him, Barnes has been a solid contributor for HWE in his two games so far. Todd Twelftree and Dylan Cicolella are also in excellent form, so all is not lost yet.

SPORT v District

Thriller between Roosters, Magpies Two Wells v Mallala

TRADITIONALLY, these two teams play out gripping contests, which go down to the wire. Just to illustrate, while Mallala has had most of the results go in its favour over the past two years, no game had a margin of more than about four goals. It seems no matter where they are on the ladder, both sides roll up to play and Saturday should be no different. The Roosters’ first quarter on Saturday was scintillating stuff and once they got a run on, it was harder to stop than a Bill Lawry blood nose. A forward line featuring Tallan Leighton, Lee Allmond, Dylan Wise, Andrew Hardiman and resting ruckman, Ben Slattery, functions beautifully. Hardiman actually leads the league in goal kicking, with 17 majors for the year so far. He works hard up the ground and is fierce around the contests, not shy of taking a contested grab as well. No doubt one of the Cawrse boys will get the job on him this weekend. Mallala arrive fresh and buoyant from the bye. Not to put the

mockers on him but we should see a return of Jason Earl to the midfield for this one. The midfield battle should be a cracker too, with Earl, Liam Whitwell and Joel Montgomerie for Mallala, all going head to head with Ned Seccafien, Ben Spiteri and the Hines boys for Two Wells. Expect another close one, although the Simon Feast factor in the ruck will be tough for Mallala to cover.

Sparked by the allure of a Goldney Welding Trophy, no less than 25 players stormed the greensward last Saturday, some also intent on getting round one of both the President’s and Captain’s Trophies played and won. In the A Grade, the indomitable Doug Taylor surged home, clutching a sodden Stableford score of 39 points and so streeting a field of comparatively decrepit, rumpled dotards. Of these creaking wrecks, Jimmie Breuer (38) limped into 2nd place and Bill Parkin (36) 3rd, leaving the following ruins to litter the landscape: M. Loy (34), W. Lokan (33), W. Nagle (33) and M. Hameister (28). The B Grade field was belted into submission by John Michael (40 points), who bludgeoned Bill Goudie (35) into 2nd place and grounded the aspirations of Graham “Emu” Ackland (33). Left to ponder their golfing futures with contristation were D. Rodgers (331), Barrie Michael (31), A. Henstridge (30), W. Berry (27), D. Trickett (27), A. Manuel (26), S. Jonas (25) and Joan Anderson (24). Rick Campbell creamed the C Grade with 39 points, subduing Greg Sonntag’s 38 and mincing Malcolm Liptrop’s valiant 37. Left to feign interest in reading their tattered copies of “The Nursing Mother” were S. Davey (35), P. Friedrichs (27), Jill Taylor (23) and Moya Hayes (22). Greg Sonntag claimed the day’s sole Birdie, along with a handy Nearest The Pin at the 3rd, while NTPs were also won by Mark Loy (2nd) and Scott Davey at both the 8th and 15th. Golfer of the Winter points went to Goldney Welding Trophy winner John Michael, who got 6, while Rick Campbell was handed 5, Doug Taylor 4, Jimmie Breuer 3, Greg Sonntag 2 and remaining gormless oiks, 1 each. This weekend we’ll amass for the Mark’s Meats Trophy, a Stroke round, to be started by Wayne “Wallaby Shanks” Nagle, with Dr. Mark ”Loin Chops” Loy serving as remedial apothecary at the 19th. We’ll also offer a Sunday comp. the following day.

Whether Hayden Walker is rubbed out by the tribunal tonight will also be important, as his opposing number, Will Banton, has been rucking beautifully for the Tigers.

THE smaller confines of Port Wakefield oval will tighten this contest right up, likely to play in favour of Virginia. The big bodies around the stoppages, such as Graham Rigney and Matthew Young, tend to be hard to shift off the ball, feeding runners like Troy Wilkey, Ben Russell and Rocky Perre. However, the Eagles had a great win over the Rams at Port Wakefield last year, Todd Twelftree and Lee Belperio both prominent.

they’re in with a show. Virginia has been slightly under-strength in recent weeks, with ongoing niggling injuries keeping a few players out of the team. Defenders, Devon Oliver and Nathan Warren, are also yet to play this season for the Rams. With a few players filling in those positions from the reserves perhaps leaves a few chinks in the Virginia armour but whether the Eagles can isolate that

advantage is a separate issue all together. The HWE lads have a fair share of injury concerns of their own, however, with the right mentality, planning and execution, anything’s possible. Matthew Bryant is in good form in front of the sticks, he faces one of the league’s best defenders in Virginia’s Adrian Mark on Saturday too. It should be a great mini-battle between those two.

Hamley girls

in top spot

Courtside with Merridy Manuel It was a good weekend to be playing at home, all three home sides taking the honours. The most exciting result was the clash between Hamley and Hummocks, the Bridge girls winning by three goals and securing top spot on the ladder. Longies had an easy win over Virginia, as did Two Wells over a struggling Balaklava side. Hummocks had Beth back at centre this week, but were forced to make changes during the game due to GS and coach Sam Nicholls, ‘tweaking’ her knee in the third quarter. Sam proudly said niece Ashleigh Williams proved herself, replacing Sam for the last quarter in which Hummocks outscored Hamley by five goals. Sam felt their attacking game was just a bit off all the way down the court, and they had to work extra hard to stop the supply to Hamley GS Amber Rogers. Hamley seem to have settled, making no changes to their line up since swapping Chelsea Modra to GA and Sarah Koch to WA a fortnight

ago. Stacey Hewitt had a run at WA in the second quarter when Sarah Koch hurt her ankle. Hamley coach Lee Barnett also commented on the impact Ashleigh made to the game. “We had to fight for the ball all game. We relaxed a little in the last quarter, and their young GS made an impact.” It seems a fight is on our hands between the teams, not only for top possie, but also in best player votes. Coach and GD Lee Barnett has now been best on court for every match. Close behind is Hummocks’ Sarah Young, who shone on the weekend, despite the trauma of husband Nathan’s dislocated wrist, on front page of last week’s Producer.

week (Jamie Healey) and by the last quarter we were playing great netball.” The Balaklava girls are in a bit of strife with an injured player, C Tegan Pollard, and GD Sophie van Kleef no longer playing. Sophie has earned her position in the team winning best player last week, but study commitments have forced her to drop netball. Soph replaced the legendary Michelle Williams – will we see a comeback? Balaklava was reshuffled, placing GA Talia Kruger into GD, who did well and achieved best player. Carly Friedrichs and Jane Harding capably filled in at WD. Coach Tess Pollard said of the game, “I felt our overall court play was okay, but the pressure put on our goalies by the Two Wells defences contributed to us

not being able to utilise the ball well.” Tess is hopeful, though, that her girls will lift and be back

playing confidently again. Two Wells coach, Stacey Gameau spoke proudly of her team’s win. “It was an impressive performance for our whole team. We stepped our game up a level this week and came away with a convincing win.” Only centre court changes were made in the second half for Two Wells, Nicole Hardy coming on a WD in the third quarter. Another great performance from GD Karen Penhall, best player two weeks in a row. This now places Two Wells, Mallala and Balaklava on equal points. The game to watch will be Two Wells against Mallala, 12.30pm this Saturday, at Two Wells.

Bomberettes steal win A1: A last quarter comeback from Hummocks wasn’t enough to beat the tall Hamley Bridge side, falling three goals short at Hamley Bridge on Saturday. Defensive pressure was strong from both teams from the first whistle with Hummocks’ consistency and precise movement of the ball by WA Sarah young and C Beth Reid allowing them to take an early lead. Strong rebounding by Alison Schahinger provided timely turnovers for Hamley Bridge, and with accurate shooting from Amber Rogers they were able to fight back to take a narrow lead at quarter time. HB 14 – Hum 12. With Hummocks circle defenders double-teaming the HB goal shooter, GA Chelsea Modra became more of a focus shooting seven goals for the quarter. Lisa Powell provided a number of turnovers at WD for Hummocks. Sam Nicholls showed great strength and dominated the goal circle for Hummocks shooting 11 goals in a tightly contested quarter. HB 27 – Hum 24. Sarah Koch returned to the court at the start of the third quarter after a foot injury and combined with sister Ashleigh to provide more consistent movement of the ball taking an early seven to three lead in the quarter. Sam Nicholls leaving the court with a knee injury appeared to further unsettle the Hummocks flow. Lee Barnett provided fantastic drive out of defence with HB extending their lead by a further five goals. HB 41 – Hum 33. Hummocks picked up their intensity in the final term with WA Sarah Young delivering the ball with pin point accuracy into her goalies.

Coca-Cola soft drink as a headache cure? History tells us that the popular soft drink ‘Coca-Cola’ began its existence “in a three-legged brass pot” in the backyard of an American, John S Pemberton, on May 8, 1886. Pemberton was a pharmacist and was apparently trying to create a new headache cure. He took the concoction to the nearby Jacob’s Pharmacy, where the syrup was mixed with cold tap water and sold to ailing customers for five cents a serve. A story is related that a customer came into the pharmacy in great pain and ordered the syrup. The ‘soda jerk’ is said to have accidentally mixed it with carbonated water instead of tap water – the customer loved the new drink, saying it was “delicious and refreshing.” The ‘Fathers of the Coca-Cola

By 1928 bottle sales had surpassed fountain sales. Candler sold the company to Ernest Woodruff and a group of investors for $25 million. Woodruff’s son, Robert, led the company to worldwide success for more than 60 years. “Coca-Cola’s” origins in Australia date back to 1904 as the tobacco company British Tobacco (Aust). Today it is bottled and distributed by Coca-Cola Amatil, the largest non-alcoholic beverage company in the Pacific Rim. The Coca-Cola Co. owns a minority interest in Coca-Cola Amatil.

Ross, “Spicks and Specks” by Status Quo, “Emotion” by Destiny’s Child, “Come On Over” by Olivia Newton-John, “Heartbreaker” by Dionne Warwick, “Islands in the Stream” by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton and “Grease” by Frankie Valli. There are more but just too many to list and I’m sure we all get the picture. The thing that stands out to me is their distinctive sound and wonderful music composition. We will never hear of another group as vocally unique as the Bee Gees for as long as we live. Especially Robin Gibb, whose solo vocal performances could never be matched. Songs such as “I Started a Joke”, “And The Sun Will Shine”, and “I Can’t See Nobody” will remain immortalised in music folklore, never to be touched by another vocalist of a similar ilk. I hope we still have many more years of the Bee Gees to come.

If you never went through difficulties, how would you know that God is a deliverer?

Pemberton sold only 25 gallons of syrup, for which he grossed $50 and spent $73.96 on advertising! Pemberton’s health began to fail and he sold off the company – Asa Candler became sole owner by 1891, paying a mere $2,300 (which included all rights, including his initial investment!). The first bottling of “CocaCola” was in 1894, by Joseph Biedenharn, owner of the Biedenharn Candy Co. of Vicksburg, Mississippi. Candler thought the bottling idea was crazy and that people would never go for it – how wrong could he be!

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.

Schahinger earns spot with North Adelaide Roosters REPORT: Les Pearson

n YOUNG Two Wells mods player, Ben McFarlane runs with the ball, with teammate Jacob Pellizarri there for back-up, while Pecker Jacob Battle gives chase.

AS the Hamley Bridge Football Club continues its efforts to rebuild this year, one of the club’s favourite sons, Justin Schahinger, has been looking to add another level to his game with the NorthAdelaide Football Club. The young ruckman has played eight games in the reserves for the Roosters after completing a gruelling preseason earlier in the year. Reserves coach, Craig Brooks, said he was not sure how Schahinger ended up at the club but remembers a gangly country lad with a somewhat ungainly kicking style keenly fronting up to training. Brooks said training three nights a week, plus weights sessions, pushed Justin to his limits but he pushed through it and has earned his regular spot in the team. n Continued page 19

n TIGER Dylan Carter, surrounded by Virginia players, looks up as a teammate tries to get a tackle on Ram Chris James, during Saturday’s A grade match at Long Plains.

Rams make Tigers pay IT is the return to form local footy fans were anticipating, Virginia putting together consecutive wins with a 77-point victory over United at Long Plains on Saturday. It was a reasonably competitive affair, with a prevailing breeze favouring the water tower end of the ground. Well, competitive until a burst of Virginia goals killed off any chance of a challenge from the Tigers in the second half. Virginia kicked with the

the Final Siren with Les Pearson wind in the first term and made good use of it, opening up a 26-point lead at the first change, keeping United goalless. United coach, Travis Opitz, rued some missed opportunities early in the match, with some shots at goal failing to

register on the scoreboard at all. “We could have just as easily had 2.2 on the board, but we’re a young side that didn’t take its opportunities,” he said. The Tigers came out with some bite in the second, booting three goals while restricting

the Rams to just one. “We had most of the play in the first 15 minutes of the second quarter but we weren’t using ball well enough and struggled with delivery into our forward line,” Opitz said. Virginia coach, Greg Phillips, agreed the Tigers responded well. “United, to their credit, played some good footy and were getting the ball out of the stoppages,” he said. n Continued page 18
