Lock it or lose it! POLICE warn OF complacency

Who’s this?

LOCK your house. Lock your cars. Lock everything that can be stolen. It is a simple message from police to country people, who continue to remain stubbornly complacent about home security. The reminder comes after five unlocked vehicles had items stolen from them in Balaklava last week. Thieves also stole a TV and other property from a house in Balaklava last Tuesday. They entered the house through an unlocked back door. Diesel was also reported stolen from an Owen property in recent weeks. Balaklava police brevet sergeant, Eddie Delena, said locals were far too trusting. “It’s just the general thinking that ‘it won’t happen to us’,” Sgt Delena said.

And what is she doing in Balaklava?

Town centre appeals to developer Bec O’Brien reports: Housing developer Hickinbotham has established a draft Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the District Council of Mallala in relation to the Two Wells Town Centre Development. DCM chief executive officer, Charles Mansueto, said representatives from Hickinbotham approached council confidentially earlier in the year to discuss being involved with the project. “Hickinbotham is interested in developing a small part of the town centre,” Mr Mansueto said. “Council had previously been briefed in confidence about their proposal, which has resulted in a draft MOU.” Mr Mansueto said the MOU outlined three key principles in relation to the town centre development. These are: 1– Any access to crown land is

Hickinbotham proposal for Two Wells main street by DCM 2 – Any development that occurs is in line with the main street guidelines 3 – The existing town centre remains as a focus of retail and community ser-

vices within the district. These principles, Mr Mansueto said, were aligned with what the council had received in community feedback about the project. “There’s a demand already from the existing community for additional services in the community,” he said. “The town project is not linked directly

(with the Hickinbotham development) but they are working in parallel.” Hickinbotham Group managing director, Michael Hickinbotham, said the company supported DCM’s plans for the revitalisation of the Two Wells main street and town centre, and was committed to working with council. “Council and the community have made it clear the main street is the ‘beating heart’ of Two Wells,” Mr Hickinbotham said. “We support the council and the community’s plans to retain and grow the main street and town centre as the primary place for retail, community services and facilities. “Hickinbotham’s proposed residential development, north of the existing town centre, will help grow the Two Wells’ community.

“We want the town’s main street to prosper and thrive. “The proposed residential development has been master-planned to integrate with the existing township, and a vibrant town centre is key to achieving this.” Mr Hickinbotham said the company welcomed the opportunity to work with council to identify how it could contribute to the main street project and the proposed MOU was a reflection of this commitment. “The proposed Memorandum of Understanding creates a framework to guide ongoing discussions between the council and Hickinbotham concerning any proposals Hickinbotham may contribute to council’s revitalisation of the town centre,” he said. The draft MOU was adopted at DCM’s full council meeting on Monday night and council will now continue discussions with Hickinbotham about their involvement in the project.

n ACTION GROUP CALLS for COMMUNITY support:

Marine park meeting for Port Wakefield A TOWN meeting has been scheduled next month in Port Wakefield to discuss the potential impacts of Marine Park 14 on the community. The decision to hold the meeting was made by the Marine Park 14 Action Group (MPAG) at the group’s inaugural meeting last week. MPAG chair and local professional fisherman, Bart Butson, said the group had a strong representation from most sections of Port Wakefield and nearby communities. “It is mostly comprised of concerned residents from the town, plus three commercial fishers and two recreational fishers,” Mr Butson said. Wakefield Waters developer, Tom Chapman, is also part of the group. Mr Butson said the group initially sought endorsement from the Port Wakefield Community Management Committee and ended up having two

of its members join the group. After an initial briefing to bring the group up to speed with what has transpired so far regarding the establishment of the sanctuary zones within Marine Park 14, the group resolved to hold the town meeting. “We agreed to have the town meeting in the near future, probably in August,” Mr Butson said. “It’s just to make sure we’ve got the community’s support and help it understand what the action group is trying to achieve. “We also talked about going to the council meeting (to be held tonight) to see the report regarding the marine parks and seek clarification as to where we go from here.” Glenda Pain was installed as MPAG secretary, while Colin Doherty and Tom Chapman are part of the group’s executive.

‘Lifeblood’ of the town could be extinguished RESIDENTIAL developer, Tom Chapman, (pictured) has joined the Marine Park 14 Action Group. Mr Chapman encouraged locals to attend the town meeting next month. “I think they need to get along to it because if they don’t, the lifeblood of Port Wakefield could be slowly extinguished,” he said. Mr Chapman, whose family is behind the Wakefield Waters development planned for Port Wakefield, said the impact of the marine park and its sanctuary zones treats the town differently to other nearby seaside towns. “I think the bigger issue we see is it’s not so much what we are proposing to do (with Wakefield Waters), but most would notice Ardrossan, which is a port, has a two nautical mile exclusion zone out of the park, so it appears to be excised,” Mr Chapman explained. “It’s my view the same thing should be done at Port Wakefield around the entrance to the port because the Port Wakefield channel has been, as far as I can tell, dredged at least five times over about 160 years and will need to be done in the future. “It is still declared a port and that whole area was declared a harbour and therefore, it should be kept open.

4 www.plainsproducer.com.au

“The only way you can do that is to maintain the dredging and to do that, it has to clearly be outside the park. “Otherwise, there will be no commercial fishing going on there, no recreational boating, the channel will just silt up, the sea grass will grow over the top and that will be the end of it. “Port Wakefield will disappear as a port and eventually, it will just be known as Wakefield.” Mr Chapman said he was aware the prospect of marine parks being established in the state’s waters had been on the cards for a while. “I guess like everyone in SA, I think there is a place for marine parks but not 46 per cent of the state’s coastline,” he said. “There’s no need for it because it is all controlled by the Fisheries department and various other acts of Parliament. “It’s just another layer of red tape, a grab for power. It’s totally unnecessary, and bureaucratic. “Furthermore, 28 per cent of this particular area hasn’t even been mapped, so how do they know what they’re trying to protect? This is done on the hop by people who really need to do a bit more work before they start saying what they’re trying to say at the moment.”

Fishing and sheds on agenda IT should be another busy night at Wakefield Regional Council’s monthly meeting tonight, with a number of issues to discuss in the recently reformatted agenda. • Of particular importance is the report by WRC chief executive officer, Cate Atkinson, relating to Marine Park 14, following on from last month’s deputation by Port Wakefield fisherman, Bart Butson. The extensively researched agenda report recommends council supports the principle of establishing marine parks but advocates a review of the overall size of sanctuary zones. Mrs Atkinson further recommends council delegate her to provide a submission to the

n Wakefield Regional Council Fisheries Council of SA regarding concerns surrounding the impact of the Draft Commercial Marine Scalefish Fishery Management Plan. Council will vote on those recommendations tonight. • Hamley Bridge Community Association (HBCA) is seeking a lease over the now disused former Hamley Bridge CFS shed. If the CFS has no further use for the facility and no other lessee is found, the building would be demolished. HBCA intends to use it as a community shed for various community groups and residents. Suggested uses include senior citizen meetings, youth group,

Police warning: Lock it or lose it • From Page 1 Petty crime does tend to come with urban sprawl and it is high time locals woke up to the risk of theft and breaks to their property. Sgt Delena said prevention was the simplest solution. “Country people have always had this blasé attitude towards locking things,” he said. “All of those crimes are very time-consuming for officers, which could have been avoided. “Plus, it would have also saved victims a lot of grief, hardship and the inconvenience of having their possessions stolen.” “Lock everything and if people see something suspicious, let local police know.” Regarding the items stolen from the Balaklava home, Sgt Delena said some of the property had been recovered and investigations were continuing. To report any suspicious activity in your town, call SA Police on 131 444.

men’s shed, arts and craft, book and gardening clubs and bingo. Recommendations from the report were supportive in principle, although community consultation and an amendment to the lease application will be needed. The Port Wakefield Signage Strategy is also to be amended, with changes to some sign designs. The sign at the northbound entry to the town is to be reduced in size following objections and subsequent discussions with affected shop operator (Plains Producer, July 4). Community consultation through the town’s newsletter is also planned before another report summarising the consultation is presented to council.

e have all either been on a road trip, know someone who has, or watched a movie about one. I’m sure you have watched movies like Thelma and Louise (named after me but unlike the movie, I did come back), Smokey and the Bandit, Mad Max, Easy Rider or Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Last week, I took four “Thelmas” (Jill Taylor, Nantawarra, Tania Matz, Rhynie, Joan Anderson, Balaklava and Di Day, Burra) on a road trip for a state-wide golf competition at Millicent. Other grades were held at Lake Albert, Nuriootpa and Port Broughton. I know, I know... many of you wouldn’t really care about that, but I’m going to tell you a few highlights of our trip, just because I can. Of course, what really happened at Millicent, stays at Millicent! We travelled down the coast road, with my towns-to-go-through list on the dashboard (so I wouldn’t get lost). We made a bee-line for the Salt Creek Roadhouse (which could be used as a backdrop for the TV show Swamp People), to eat the best, freshest Coorong mullet, for lunch. Delicious, and I highly recommend it if you’re ever down that way. Off we went, and after arriving at the golf course, plopped right in the middle of the Mount Burr forest, (we were happy the tiger snakes were hibernating), and having afternoon tea, we checked in at the motel. This was the start of confirming the world is getting smaller. We learnt the relieving manager used to be the publican at the Terminus Hotel, Balaklava, and is great friends with Balaklava local and former hotel cook, Kath Rundle. The next day, we discovered the child of a lady from Kooyonga was at boarding school with local farmer, Nick May. And Balaklava’s Ada and Keith Cottle’s daughter Karen McGregor, played on the last day. Another lady was a bridesmaid in Jill’s mother’s wedding. OMG. Former Salter Springs local, Virginia Lacey, daughter of Joyce and the late Des Ross, was also playing. It proves you can’t go anywhere without knowing someone, or someone who knows someone. The competition also involved a Country versus City competition.

Karla’s_Korner Tracey to contribute as disability advisor

Karla May is wife to local farmer, Simon and mum to Lucy aged 6 and Ben, 4. This week she tries renovating ... and just scrapes by!

Auburn resident Tracy Vandepeer has been appointed to the Minister’s Disability Advisory Council. Mrs Vandepeer has been appointed for a two year term on the council, which provides advice to the Minister for Disability on issues for people with disability in South Australia. Membership of the council consists of outstanding South Australians who all have personal experience of disability and includes the executive director – disability, ageing and carers of the Department of Community and Social Inclusion, as an ex officio member. Mrs Vandepeer said she had been pleased at the appointment and the opportunity it would give her to contribute to developing key issues focussing on equality and regional issues in the disability sector. She has had many years of experience as an advocate for the community in the field of disability support and looks forward to continuing

Renovating reality check

T

urn on your television in prime time and you’re going to be inundated with reality programs either about cooking, health or home renovation. The latter is a pet peeve of mine. We have an older house. A beautiful old home with years of history and love, which like many older things, is bearing signs of age. Recently we decided it was time to revamp Master Four’s room. You’ve heard the throw away lines. Just going to ‘give it a lick of paint’, might grab a few pieces of furniture to ‘spruce it up a bit’. Understatements, lies even! Those renovation shows make it look easy. Whole rooms stripped to bare plaster, repainted and refurbished in a day. Do their paintbrushes have a special auto-paint feature I’m not seeing? Have they trained the old plaster to fall off on command? It didn’t happen like that for us. Three weeks. We were THREE WEEKS just scraping our old calsomine paint off! And shopping for new furniture? You see these contestants run into large retailers at 4:30pm and return with enough to decorate for a magazine shoot. Are they gifted with a natural ability to gravitate toward coordinated furnishings and accessories? We tried to emulate one of the renovating program’s trips to a furniture store. We chose a large Swedish chain. We went there thinking it would be easy. Within budget. Quick. We were so wrong. What we had indeed entered was a maze, not unlike an adventure video game where we had to go on a magical quest acquiring items of usefulness in order to be relinquished back into the light of day. It was not a happy adventure. If it was a competition we would have turned no profit. Whilst Master Four’s room is now painted and decorated in quite a serviceable manner, it by no means qualifies us for any reality television program. We’ll leave that to the experts!

Old school goes to community group

CLARE and Gilbert Valleys Council will hand over ownership of the old Saddleworth School building to the town’s peak body. Saddleworth Peak Body, also known as the Saddleworth and District Community Association, will also incur the building’s maintenance costs with its ownership. CGVC chief executive officer, Roy Blight, said the building was low on council’s asset renewal roster and was gradually falling into disrepair. “Council no longer had a use for the building, and it was difficult for us to justify spending money to maintain it,” he said. The building is currently on council land next to their modern depot. CGVC is transferring the building to the Saddleworth District Community Association and the Saddleworth and District Historical Society at no consideration for the building, which involves sub-dividing the land. “The council will then not have respon-

sibility for the building, and the community group will have to take on ways to raise funds for its maintenance,” Mr Blight said. “Council had a discussion about the building and came to the conclusion that it needed a useful purpose. “The Saddleworth and District Historical Society has a big role in the community and they could use the building for their displays or other purposes. “We are keen to retain the building, this way we feel it is the best option to still serve a purpose in the community.” Saddleworth Peak Body chair, Adrian Nourse, said the group raised the issue with council before the community lost another historical building in the town, after the train station was demolished about 12 months ago. “We were acting before it got to the point where we would lose the building or it would be knocked down,” he said.

Mr Nourse said the group would need to develop a business plan for the building in the near future, which will be likely to happen at the group’s next meeting in August. “We’ll need to sit down and see what needs doing first,” he said. “We would like to get it to a point where it’s OK enough for people to walk around and have a look at it.” With many local and former residents sharing close ties with the building, Mr Nourse believed it was important to retain that community link. “We’re really going to try to keep it looking as much like a school as possible,” he said. “A lot of people went to school here and would hate to see it get knocked down.” “I think it’s a win/win for both us and council,” Mr Nourse said. “Hopefully the community will get behind us and back our idea.” Given its current state, a local builder will need to inspect the building to ascertain what needs fixing.

Over recent years, an alarming number of pets are literally being loved to death though inadequate nutrition and the over consumption of processed dog and cat foods. Dr Bruce Syme, a veterinary surgeon of 20 years and founder of Vet’s All Natural pet food, is on a mission to improve the health and lifespan of Australia’s dogs and cats. “International research and experience in my clinic has shown me that dogs and cats eating a fresh meat diet, naturally balanced with vegetable matter, like a dingo or cat would eat in the wild, increases the health and lifespan of dogs and cats - it just makes sense,” Dr Syme said. To achieve Dr Syme’s goal of improving the health and lifespan of dogs and cats, he has developed a new range of premium dog and cat meat rolls. The Vets All Natural by Dr Bruce Syme rolls are made from the correct balance of premium quality fresh meat, organs and vegetables.

Funding will help protect Wakefield river ONGOING management of the Wakefield River received a financial boost through the latest round of funding through the Federal government’s Caring for our Country program. Federal Member for Wakefield, Nick Champion, announced the Northern and Yorke Natural Resource Management Board (NYNRM) would receive $154,000 to protect riparian refugia in the Wakefield River catchment. NYNRM water officer, Jennifer Munro, explained ‘riparian refugia’refers to the natural landscape that stretches along a watercourse. “Basically, the project stems from the river management plan, which was developed in 2000 for the Wakefield River,” she said. The particular stretch of river in focus is about 25 kilometres long, stretching from Undalya to Rocks Reserve. Wakefield Regional Council also has a $33,000 NRM grant to utilise at the Rocks Reserve site. Ms Munro said the Caring for our Country

JENNIFER Munro at the Wakefield river. grant would be used to focus on on-ground measures to protect the biodiversity and conservation of the habitat. “These would centre around weed control, fencing for stock control and relocation of water points away from the creek,” she said.

Some native revegetation would also be involved. The Caring for our Country program provides funding to support communities, farmers and other land manages to do work to protect Australia’s natural environment. With about 25 landholders dotted along that stretch of the river, Ms Munro said part of her role was to assist property owners in carrying out those environmental measures mentioned. “I also provide some technical support and help them access the relevant information,” she said. Over the years, the local landowners have proven themselves to be fairly malleable when working to protect the river. “With a lot of the landholders along the river, their families have been there 100 to 150 years, which gives them an appreciation for the river and they realise they’re on a good quality section of it too,” Ms Munro said. Mr Champion said the funding would allow the Northern and Yorke Natural Resource Man-

agement Board to continue their good work. “I am pleased to welcome the increased support for the Northern and Yorke Natural Resource Management Board under the Caring for our Country program,” he said. “Local people have the local knowledge and practical solutions to help better conserve our natural environment and improve the ways we manage our farmlands in a sustainable way. “This project will benefit the Wakefield River and help us achieve a better protected and more resilient environment.” Under the Caring for our Country 2012-13 business plan, 66 new projects across the nation will be granted funding of $12.5 million to protect Australia’s natural environment and safeguard its iconic natural places and species. Mr Champion also announced Adelaide and Mt Lofty Natural Resources Management Board would also receive $120,659 to access the current impacts and threat abatement of marine debris within Gulf St Vincent.

THE highly acclaimed Balaklava Eisteddfod is on this weekend, with three days of music starting on Friday, with the finale concert wrapping things up on Sunday afternoon. Eisteddfod committee president, Bronny Cottle, revealed the Fishbowl Boys, Australian Barbershop Quartet Champions, will be guest artists at the finale concert. Two Wells primary and Eudunda Area school students will participate in the massed choir for the first time. “The Friday concert band section will be a huge highlight,” Bronny said.

Sally Crowther continues our focus on the region

ith only two more people residing in Hamley Bridge in comparison to 2006 when a population of 631 was recorded, not much else has changed in Hamley Bridge according to the 2011 Census held in August last year. In 2011 it was recorded that 51.3 per cent of the population was male and 48.7 per cent female. The median age of 41 has also remained exactly the same over the past five years, with a small drop in the younger generation. The five to 14 age group has dropped three per cent to 12.8 per cent in 2011 and the 15 to 24 age group has also dropped one per cent from 39.8 per cent in 2006. The 55 to 64 age group has increased one per cent to 11.7 per cent, and the 65 and older group decreasing two per cent from 15.5 per cent recorded in 2006.

There are less Australian-born residents living in Hamley Bridge in comparison to five years ago, dropping three per cent to 79.3 per cent in 2011. Now there are more people from Google Earth England who have chosen Hamley Bridge as their home, with the number of English residents rising nearly two per cent to 9.5 per cent of the population in 2011. But while there are less Australian-born residents, the percentage of people who speak English at home has increased one per cent from 92.6 per cent in 2006.

ccording to data gained from the 2011 Census, there has been a significant influx of people in the Owen area. But sometimes figures can lie. An extra 407 people have been added to the town’s population, but Pinery, the neighbouring village across the Balaklava-Mallala road wasn’t included in the 2006 Census, as it was in 2011. Compared to five years ago, there are more young children residing in the town, with the zero to four-yearold category increasing four per cent to eight per cent in 2011. The five to 14 year old category has also risen by two per cent from 15 per cent in 2006. While the 25 to 55 year old category has increased four per cent to 37.5 per cent in 2011, the 65 and older category

Religion seems to be changing in the town, with seven per cent more people turning to the ‘no religion’ category from 27.4 per cent recorded in 2006. However while it appears the ‘no religion’ category has risen, so has the Anglican religion, increasing nearly three per cent to 17.8 per cent, and Lutheran increasing one per cent from 2.5 per cent in 2006. Residents are earning more than they were five years ago, with the average weekly income rising $64 to $413 in 2011, but is still $167 less than the national average of $577.

has dropped nearly nine per cent to 14.9 per cent recorded last year. There has been little change in Owen when it comes to religion, with the no religion category staying the same at 30.3 per cent and the Uniting 17.5 per cent. There are more Catholics apparently, rising nearly two per cent to 14.8 per cent in 2011, and more Anglicans, increasing four per cent to 12.3 per cent recorded last year. It appears having children is also an increasing fad in Owen, with an extra nine per cent of couples with children, in comparison to 2006 which was recorded at 31.8 per cent. The percentage of couples without children has also decreased nearly 10 per cent to 42.5 per cent last year. The median weekly rent has in-

The average weekly household wage has also risen $244 from $693 in 2006, while the average weekly household wage has decreased $46 to $854 in 2011. Fewer people own their house outright in comparison to five years ago, dropping four per cent to 22.7 per cent in 2011. With fewer people owning their house, more have turned to the option of renting, with an eight per cent increase to 24.8 per cent recorded as renting in 2011. However, while the average wage is going up, so is the cost of renting, with an extra $35 added to the 2006 weekly rent of $140, however is still lower than the national average of $285. While not recorded in 2006, in 2011, 27.6 per cent of the Hamley Bridge population attended educational institutions. Of these 28.4 per cent attended primary school 23.3 per cent attended secondary school and 14.8 per cent attended a tertiary or technical institution.

creased $147 to $466 in 2011, although it is still below the national average of $577. Renting seems to be a thing of the past in Owen, with an extra two per cent of people owning their house outright in comparison to 2006 at 36.8 per cent. There is an increase of residents who are paying off a mortgage rising nine per cent since 35.8 per cent in 2006. Although more people are turning to mortgages, it appears the cost of rent has also risen $25 to an average of $135 recorded in 2011. Although not recorded in 2006, in 2011, 29.8 per cent of people were attending an educational institution. Of these, 41.4 per cent were in primary school, 26.2 per cent were in secondary school and 5.8 per cent in a tertiary or technical institution.

VAL BAKER RETIRES FROM NURSING AFTER NEARLY 50 YEARS AND A ...

Lifetime of healing A

VON’S Val Baker will be swapping her stethoscope for a fishing rod in coming months. Val, a registered nurse (RN), finished up at the Balaklava Hospital last Friday, after 48 and a half years in the job. She began her four-year training program in 1964 at the Memorial Hospital, North Adelaide, in a group of six, which included close friend and fellow local, Mary Bubner. “As soon as I finished training in early 1968, I came back to Balaklava,” Val said. Originally from Owen, she married Avon farmer, Daryl Baker in 1968. Val had a hiatus from nursing while raising her family before returning to the profession soon after. The couple had three daughters, who all live in Adelaide. Sarah has a PHD in molecular biology, Emma is a chartered accountant and Ruth has a degree in social science and works in IT at Business SA. “We’re very proud of them because they’re great human beings who have something to offer society,” Val said. Despite being in the job for almost 50 years, she was baffled

Les Pearson reports: as to why she got into nursing to begin with. “I never wanted to do anything else,” Val said. “I don’t know why, but I always wanted to be a nurse. There are no other nurses in the family.” Of course, the profession has its incentives. “I like people, I like the caring aspect,” Val said. “I think if you can contribute to people’s wellbeing, it’s an extremely rewarding profession. You are deeply involved with people’s lives. “It’s great to see people get better and leave but it is also a privilege, when people lose their loved ones, to make that experience something good to reflect on in years to come.” It is a big year for the couple, Daryl also retiring from farming this year. Val felt it was suitable timing. “I’m way past 65, so really it was time,” she said. “I still loved going to work, I still loved my job and I think I was still able to do it, so I think it was probably a good time to leave.”

Val speaks highly of the staff she served with over the years. “At Balaklava, I was part of a highly skilled, professional team and I was really proud to serve in that wing,” she said. “You have to be a very good all-rounder to work in the country because you don’t know what’s going to come in the door. “It’s been an extremely rewarding experience. “I enjoyed being a nurse, I enjoyed being a part of people’s lives.” Throughout her time as an RN, she witnessed many changes in her profession, including new methods, equipment, medications, technology and the helipad facility. “When I trained at Memorial, when you had a heart attack, you lay flat on your back for a week, which probably killed more people than it saved,” Val reflected. “The way surgery was treated, people used to lie in bed a lot longer. Now you’re up and about and out, you almost expect drivethrough treatment.” There was always one constant though. “If you were an RN on duty, you were responsible for the day to day running of the wing, that didn’t change,” Val said. With plenty of spare time to

Val Baker believes the Balaklava’s excellent hospital and health services are not under threat of being cut – but warned against community complacency. Local concern about the hospital’s future was raised following the recent temporary closure of the Balaklava Hospital’s operating theatre. “I was very disappointed when I heard it was going to close because I worked in theatre, I was the scrub nurse for the doctors but I’m delighted that they’re going to reopen it,” Val said. “I don’t think we’re in any imminent danger of our hospital closing. “I think government policy over the last few years has been to try to centralise as many things as they can but I don’t see any risk at the moment. “I know (orthopaedic surgeon) Professor Jegan Krishnan thinks people should come from Adelaide to see what we’re doing right, not the other way around. “We’re lucky to have the surgeons coming that we do.” After working almost 50 years as an RN, a majority of those locally, Val said residents should recognise the great services available but keenly defend them at all costs. “The theatre being reinstated suggests our acute services are safe but as a community we need to be vigilant and fiercely protect the services we do have here.”

“Community must protect Balaklava hospital services”

share together, Val said both she and Daryl were in no hurry to fill their newly found freedom as yet. “I think we’ll just try to catch our breath for the moment,” she said. “We still have clearing sales to organise, so there’s still quite a bit of sorting out to do. “Daryl’s a keen fisherman, so hopefully we’ll do a bit of that and we have four grandchildren, so it

will be nice to be able to see a bit more of them.” Reminiscing on her career, Val had mixed feelings about leaving. “I will really miss it, you become close friends with the people you work with,” she said. “I am looking forward to retirement but in lots of ways, I was sad to leave. “It’s something I will always look back on with great fondness.”

Mallala CWMS planning starts M a l l a l a’ s p r o p o s e d Community Waste Management Scheme (CWMS) is gearing up, with residents invited to attend information sessions next month. District Council of Mallala chief executive officer, Charles Mansueto, said the scheme, which will see residents connect their in ground septic tanks to a community waste treatment plant, would affect about 300 homes. Mr Mansueto said the $3.8 million project was moving forward and council was currently going through its formal community consultation process. “People can come in (at the

information sessions) and ask questions about the scheme,” Mr Mansueto said. “We’ll have council staff on hand, as well as consultants who have been working on the CWMS, (and) we’ll be able to show them the plans and answer any questions they may have.” Mr Mansueto said engineers had already walked the district to work out where the best possible connection points were for each residence and the information sessions would be a chance for residents to get a clearer understanding of this. “They’ll at least have this op-

portunity to raise any issues with these connection points,” he said. “It’s a big project for us and for Mallala.” It is hoped the project will be completed by mid-2013, Mr Mansueto said. The first CWMS information session will be held at the Mallala Bowling Club on Wednesday August 15 from 9.30am to 11.30am. Later that same day another information session will be held at the Mallala Council Chambers from 5.30pm to 7.30pm. • Contact District Council of Mallala on 8527 0200 for more information.

Have you seen Ajax and Stamp? An Adelaide psychic has suggested two small dogs, missing for the past 12 months, could be in the Two Wells area. Salisbury North resident, Sandra Field, has spent $6,000 and countless hours searching for her nine-yearold Jack Russell cross Tenterfield dogs, Ajax and Stamp, and has widened her search to include Two Wells after a posting by Semaphore-based psychic, clairvoyant and medium, Darrell Whitfield, on her Facebook page in early June. The white and tan, desexed and micro chipped males went missing from Sandra’s mothers’ home on July 19 last year and despite her continued efforts have not been seen since. Sandra believes her beloved “fur-babies” have been the victim of dog napping and says she has suffered enormous grief over their disappearance.

Kimberley’s show ambassador award

Former Whitwarta, now Ardrossan local, Kimberley Hoepner, was named runner-up in the Young Rural Ambassador Award, announced at a dinner in Adelaide on July 6. Kimberley, a member of Maitland Show Society, was one of eight young country entrants, aged between 16 to under 20, competing in the event. Kimberley volunteered to enter after learning the region had not had an entrant for some years. One of the event’s aims is to highlight the importance of youth in rural SA, and in particular the show movement. The eight finalists spent a day touring Adelaide and were then interviewed by five judges. They later attended a dinner and were interviewed again, this time in front of the guests. All entrants were judged over the course of the whole day, including their interaction with the other entrants. After dinner Kimberley was presented with her runner-up award, with Mundulla’s McKeely Maney the winner. Plains Producer, Wednesday July 25, 2012


NEWS v Mallala

Memory of war hero returns to Mallala

LIAM delivers the chair to Mallala Museum. It is now being recovered.

District Council of Mallala (DCM) is getting into the swing of things in time for the South Australian Living Artist Festival to be held from August 3 – 26. DCM is holding an Art Exhibition titled ‘Living Talent - Living Local’ with the official launch held next Wednesday August 1 at 2pm at Two Wells Public Library.

Oval projects taking shape

Art show to open The aim is to celebrate local artists by showcasing their work during the festival at various council buildings, including the Two Wells and Mallala Libraries, as well as the Mallala Council Office and the Two Wells Service Centre. Entry is free and there will be artwork for sale.

On September 11, 1916, Frank Cullen, a young man from Mallala, enlisted in the Australian army’s 27th Battalion to fight for King and Empire in The Great War. He went by the ship “Afric” to England and from there to serve in France and Belgium, where he was killed in action on Christmas Day, December 25, 1917, at the age of just 21 years. He is buried in the Prowes Point Military Cemetery, Belgium. A n o rg a n i s a t i o n named the Mallala Patriotic Girls Club presented his parents Mr and Mrs (Michael and Mary) Cullen with a “Morris” reclining chair with an inscribed silver plaque on it in remembrance of Frank’s life and service to his country. Before the end of the war Mr and Mrs Cullen and family had relocated to Balaklava, where Mr Cullen worked as a butcher. In late 2010, Mallala Museum committee received an email from a lady named Patricia,

The seats are now located along the perimeter fence in front of the clubrooms. Volunteers installed the seats recently, with the existing metal benches relocated to the far side of the oval.

Internet brings chair to museum living in Newcastle, NSW. She had viewed the recently compiled Mallala Museum Wiki site on the Internet – www.nowandthen.net. au – found the article about the Mallala war memorial and read the names of the 10 young men who were killed from the area during WWI, including Private Frank Cullen. In a remarkable coincidence, when Patricia had been living in Adelaide about 20 years earlier, she had browsed in a second hand store and purchased a chair. It was the particular chair still with the plaque on it in remembrance of Frank Cullen. Patricia moved to Newcastle to live and the chair went with her. Patricia said she was touched by the story and on discovering there was a museum at Mallala, she thought the chair should return to Mallala. Mallala Museum member Gwenda Griffiths, who had been liaising with Patricia,

PRIVATE Frank Cullen, who died in Belgium in 1917, aged 21. agreed – but that’s where the the story rested for two years. “However, one day in late June this year there was a telephone call from Patricia’s son, Liam,” Gwenda said. “He was on his way from Sydney to the Flinders Ranges via Broken Hill and had the chair in his vehicle to deliver to the Museum. “The committee was delighted and impressed the young man would come many kilometres out of his way to deliver the chair.” But that was not the end of the story. Patricia was disap-

pointed at some stage during its life the chair had been covered in an inappropriate modern material, so she sent a donation of $100 to the museum so the committee could arrange for the chair to be recovered, which is now occuring “Isn’t this a wonderful story to warm our hearts and renew our faith in the generosity of people,” Gwenda said. Mallala Museum’s Wiki site is proving to be a valuable tool where the public can access information on a variety of subjects and organisations relating to the district.

Beat the water price rise The water bill for the average South Australian residential property is expected to increase by about nine per cent from July 1 this year. Country residents will pay 3.8 per cent more for SA Water sewerage charges. Metropolitan customers face a 3.3 per cent hike. Figures released in May by the State government said the minimum quarterly sewerage charge would be $84 per quarter. NEW residentia lwater prices for the 2012-13 financial year are: • Quarterly supply charge of $73.25 (25 per cent increase on 2011-12); $2.42/kL for water use from 0-30kL per quarter (25 per cent increase on 2011-12) ; $3.45/ kL for water use from 30-130kL per quarter (25 per cent increase on 2011-12); $3.73/kL for water use greater than 130kL per quarter (25 per cent increase on 2011-12) The average metropolitan household uses about 190 kilolitres of water per year. Based on this and including a typical sewerage bill, householders would pay about $1245 per year in 2012-13 – an increase of about $107 per year when compared to 2011-12.

get a tank rebate In November 2007, the State Government launched the HOME Rebate scheme to encourage South Australian households to achieve greater water savings inside and outside the home. A number of rebates are no longer available. These include washing machines, showerheads, dual flush toilets, hot water re-circulators, pool covers, pool cover rollers, home water audits, plumbed-in rainwater tanks, the retrofit program and garden goods. You can still apply for up to $200 for a new stand alone rainwater tank with a capacity of 1000 litres or more which is not connected to household plumbing. 4 The tank must be purchased on or after March 11, 2010 (as evidenced on the receipt) 4 The receipt of purchase must be an original 4 The tank must have a minimum capacity of 1000 litres 4 Only one stand alone tank rebate is available per property 4 There is no requirement for the rainwater tank to be connected to household plumbing owner occupiers will increase from $125 to $155. • Maximum concessions for owner occupier will increase from $235 to $265. • Maximum sewerage concession will increase by $5 to $110. Water Minister, Paul Caica, said this year’s price rise was expected to be the last significant increase. A one-off Water Security Rebate will be introduced to help alleviate the cost of increased water prices – but this will not be paid until next year.

Premier, Jay Weatherill, said the rebate would go to more than 600,000 residential customers, meaning this year’s price increase for the average water and sewerage bill would be about nine per cent. Households using up to and including 120 kilolitres per year will receive a one-off rebate of $45 while those using more than 120 kilolitres, typically a larger family, will receive a $75 rebate. This rebate will be based on consumption billed for the 2012 calendar year and will be rebated to customers in early 2013.

Successful Two Wells market brings the town and district alive T Words and Pictures:

Bec O’Brien

Two Wells’ first Designs and Delights market last Saturday has been hailed a success, with more than 1000 people estimated to have browsed the many stalls throughout the day. Organiser, Nancy Stroop, of Lewiston, said she had spent countless hours putting the event together and was pleased to see so many people attend; saying the foot traffic from visiting football clubs Angle Vale and Smithfield was an unexpected bonus. “Everyone’s rapt, they couldn’t have been happier,” Nancy enthused. “It’s been absolutely fantastic, I’ve had such great feedback from stall holders and customers, and so many people want to come back. “And I think the locals were totally blown away with it because everybody had a smile on their face.” With a focus on new and handmade products, stalls included saddlery and horse wear, homemade cupcakes and sweets, scarves, wooden toys, nuts and chocolates, hair clips and crocheted hats, quilting, puzzles, soaps, scrapbooking, jewellery and more. Outside there were more stalls and also activities for the kids, with a jumping castle proving popular and the Balls on Water activity just challenging enough to be loads of fun. Nancy said she was thrilled with the vibe of the market, saying it was a great opportunity for people to catch-up, shop and browse quality products in

their own backyard. “People met new people and chatted with old friends,” she said. “And the locals were so happy because they’ve never had this sort of thing here before, lots of people were asking ‘when’s the next one?’. “It brings more people to town and to the area so that’s got to be good for the town.” Interest in the event had been high, Nancy said, with stall holders coming from as far as Morphett Vale, Reynella, Peterborough, Robertstown and Ardrossan, as well as local areas, including Gawler, Evanston, Two Wells and Angle Vale. Fifty per cent of each stallholder’s fee was donated to animal charity group, Friends of the Furry Ones, Nancy said, and many people donated canned and dry pet food to the shelter also. “I’m really passionate about their shelter because they do so much good work,” Nancy said. Terri Dohnt, of Lewiston, managed her stall Little Fashionista with sister, Elouise Dohnt, and said it was lovely to have such an event locally. “It’s been a great day and it’s nice to be doing a local market,” she said. “Meeting so many people from the community has been good too.” The next Designs and Delights market is set for Saturday September 15 at the Two Wells Community Centre.

Peckers firmly at the top BALAKLAVAmoved three games clear at the top of the A grade ladder with a convincing 100-point win over Hamley Bridge at Ralli Park on Saturday. The Peckers opened with the first goal of the match before the Bombers hit back through Danny Ellis. Peckers forward, Glenn Dawson, was onsong early, with four first quarter goals, while Valor Thach got forward to add Hamley Bridge’s second. Balaklava built on the early five-goal lead, kicking a wasteful four goals and seven behinds, while keeping the Bombers scoreless for the quarter. Just before half time, Craig Taylor, who had

REPORT: Les Pearson been excellent to that point, left the ground for Hamley Bridge with a groin problem. He did not return for the rest of the game. With five goals at the halfway point, Dawson looked poised for another huge bag of goals. Bombers captain, Craig Young, went to Dawson and played pretty well, the forward managing two second-half goals for a tally of seven. One of those goals was a booming effort from 55 metres, which Young could do little about. Balaklava stacked

on eight goals in the third term, while Hamley Bridge managed three of its own. Thach got his second with a running effort from 45 metres, while Sam Collings and Shane Hanson also got on the scoreboard. Hanson added two more goals in the last quarter to finish with three goals but another six goals to Balaklava, including a few to playing coach, Stuart Lamond, and the sealer to defender and part-time forward, Derek Friedrichs, capped a good day for the Peckers. “In the end, the result probably came out as it should when the top team plays the bottom side,” Lamond said. Captain, Hayden Walker, was named best for Balaklava in a dominant performance in the ruck, while Justin Walker moved well in his second game back from injury. “I played him (Justin) across the half forward flank as with his height and strength, I thought we could expose them in a few areas,” Lamond said. Youngsters, Josh Butterfield and Michael Clifford, made their A grade debuts, while the Peckers also had Tate Michael and Riley McDonald in the team. “We went in with three under 18 players and one only just 18, which was pleasing in that regard,

Bailey, who plays football for the Under 12 Demons in Darwin, spent time with them at training sessions, too, kicking goals with the Power’s Danyle Pearce on Sunday July 22.

as we were able to give them some game time,” Lamond said. “It is part of the plan this year, to give those younger guys as much of a go as possible.” Butterfield and Clifford came into the selected line-up at the expense of late withdrawals, Chad Ruiz (WWT Eagles U18s) and Ben Catford (ankle). Form defender, Brenton Lamond, who was good again at half-back, was also off the ground towards the end of the game with a corked thigh. Bombers coach, Ash Barnett, said the game was always going to be tough to win. “We went in with a couple of injured blokes too and some of them lasted five minutes,” he said. He said the club tried to spread the load of injured senior players over the grades, after it played a few too many youngsters against Mallala earlier this year when faced with a similar situation. Barnett was pleased with the games of Lachy and Dale Norman, Thach and Craig Young. “The Norman boys are good examples of consistent players for us,” he said. “A few of our blokes need to take a leaf or two out of their book. “Thach did a few good things, he’s battled hard against it all year.” The experiment of Hanson in the ruck at the first bounce also didn’t work. “Shane Hanson is not a ruckman,” Barnett concluded. “We just put him in there to see how it would work. “I still believe he’s the best full-forward in the competition but he hasn’t had the chance to be settled in the one position this year.” The Bombers host Virginia this weekend, with the prospect of welcoming back ruckman, James Sullivan, and midfielders, Jason Brooks and Ryan Appleton.

“We’re a chance this week if we get a few back but in saying that, we do lose our prime mover (Taylor),” Barnett said. “With a bit of luck, we might be able to jag a couple towards the end of the year. “If we can choose from our full list, we might be able to shape the top four a bit. “That’s our main aim from now on in.” Hanson might also get the chance to prove his nous as a full forward. “I might just sit him up there for the last four games and if he gets cold, he gets cold,” Barnett said. Balaklava have the bye, the club opting for a lighter week, training in the gym at Gawler in its one main session this week. “It gives the guys a chance to freshen up more than anything,” Lamond said.

Roosters steal second spot n BRANDON Taylor, HW Eagles attempts to stop a Rooster mark to Brandon Daly during Saturday’s senior colts game.

IT was a different coach at the helm but the result was the same for Two Wells again on Saturday, obliterating an undermanned Hummocks-Watchman Eagles by 134 points at Lochiel Oval. Roosters coach, Mark Thomson, took a back seat for the match, while assistant, Andy Seccafien, took the reins for the day. “It was just for something different for the boys,” Thomson explained. “It was just a different voice to help keep them motivated.” He has used the theory before at BlythSnowtown, allowing Wayne Darling to do quarter time speeches and the like, but never to such a large extent. Going by the result, the experiment worked, the Roosters building their lead at every change after a an arm-wrestle to begin with. “It was slow going in the first quarter, it was a bit of a struggle,” Thomson said. An 11-goal final term completed the rout, the Eagles smashed by the emerging Roosters. Two Wells forward, Andrew Hardiman, started the season on fire but has had a lean patch in recent weeks. He returned to form in a big way, booting eight goals in a stellar performance, working hard up the ground from the half-forward flank. “I reckon he was pretty buggered at the end of the game,” Thomson said. The result was also a huge celebration point for Lee Allmond, who marked his

REPORT: Les Pearson 150th A grade match for the club. Brice Hart returned to the senior team this week after an extensive absence with a knee complaint, while defender, Brad Fitzgerald, was rested for the game. Thomson said the club has an internal clause whereby if a player has three games in a row starting on the bench, that player goes back to the reserves for a full game to regain any lost fitness. Midfielders, Khan Leighton, Ned Seccafien and Ben Spiteri, all played somewhere between two and a half to three quarters on Saturday through the team’s rotations. Thomson added the team has more rotations planned this week. The huge win also allowed Two Wells to take second spot from Mallala, now level on points but miles ahead on percentage. Still, the wins need to keep coming for the Roosters. “We’re only there by percentage so we still need to win our games to secure it,” Thomson reminded his team. “We’re only at the 1000-metre mark of the Melbourne Cup.” The blood-thirsty Roosters now turn their attention to United. There are no plans to take the foot off the accelerator. “That’s what we’ve got to keep doing, is keep winning games of footy,” Thomson said.

SPORT v Football

Bombers, Rams could put on a great duel

HWE v Mallala

MALLALA has dropped its past three games in a row, all against fellow top four teams. With confidence slightly dented, is there any chance Hummocks-Watchman Eagles can mount a challenge? There sure is but it will take a complete team effort. The Magpies have reasonable depth, with youngsters such as Troy Algar and Jake Birchmore playing their respective roles well in the team. Jordan Clements has also been a handy pick-up. Scott Hahn has been down on goals in recent weeks and he will be keen to kick another bag this weekend. He will probably attract the attention of Sam Baker, although Ryan Reid is equally as experienced and cunning as Hahn. Matt Bryant remains the Eagles’ main goal threat and with his clean hands and clinical finishing, tends to take his chances. Tim or David Cawrse would probably be the ideal match-up for him. Mallala’s midfield looks to be the main area it can really get on top of the Eagles although on paper, it appears to be a decent match-up.

Hamley Bridge v Virginia

THE Bombers are hopeful of some returning A graders to bolster the squad that struggled against Balaklava on the weekend. James Sullivan returning goes a long way to addressing the ruck shortage the Bombers had on the weekend and with Chris James carrying most of the ruck for the Rams, these two could have a great duel this weekend. More importantly though, is the whisper Justin Schahinger could be back for the Bombers on Saturday as well. If Ben Galic is not included in the Rams’ line-up, this could somewhat stretch Virginia for height. Kirk Heberle has been struggling through games with a calf problem but still proving handy. If Ash Barnett switches him forward, it would probably attract the Adrian Mark match up. This could put the Rams in a bit of a spot of bother, given Shane Hanson’s goal-kicking ability, combined with Nathan Flynn at centre half forward. Ryan Appleton and Jason Brooks also add some midfield depth for Hamley Bridge, something they will need against Virginia, which has a solid on-ball department. Something Barnett should note is the form of defender, Emmanuel Tsimiklis, who creates run and carry from defence and also gets forward for a goal or two. The likes of Rocky Perre can’t be left unattended on the wing, so accountability from a few Bombers will be pivotal if they are to have a chance. Brendon Niklaus’ form at the other end of the ground also requires some homework from the Bombers’ coaching staff.

Best case scenario, based on this year’s squad, is Joel Wilson, Todd Twelftree and Lee Belperio, with Shaun Light in the ruck for HWE, taking on Jacob Walsh in ruck, Christian Rimmer, Joel Montgomerie and Jason Earl for Mallala. Earl is reportedly under another injury cloud, while Daniel Griffiths also didn’t play on Saturday. Both teams would be hopeful of regaining some of their respective better players this weekend. They’ll need them.

Two Wells v United

AN improving United will need its full squad at its most committed to challenge Two Wells this weekend.

before the bounce Round 15 APFL preview with Les Pearson

The Roosters have had a ruthless six weeks or so, smashing all opponents in their path, including big wins over Virginia and Mallala. The Tigers can expect them to come out with pace and plenty of aggression yet again in their pursuit to cement a top two finish. Looking at the line-up, it’s hard to pick a weakness in the Two Wells team, which is a great sign for them, a bad one if you’re any other club. Where United can strike first is when the scoreboard is 0-0. The Tigers need to come out with some combined intent to challenge the Roosters. With Peter Valle and Alistair Fleming likely inclusions after the bye for United, there is only

further improvement on the cards if the team approach this one with the right mentality. The Tigers have put a lot of work in off the field in recent months and must never forget the other clubs below them, hunting for a higher finish. For Two Wells, the return to form of Andrew Hardiman is a promising sign, while in the ruck, Simon Feast continues on as he has all year, giving his midfielders first use. Brad Fitzgerald is due to return as well, adding to the height stocks for the Roosters. At home, they’re hard to go past, and the Tigers will be hardpressed to stick with the form team of the competition.

Rams building momentum • From back page It is likely those names will remain behind centre in matches to come. “I’m definitely a big believer in having a settled defence,” Phillips said. Phillips sent consistent midfielder, Ben Russell, to tag the dangerous Joel Montgomerie and felt Russell didn’t let him down. “He did an extremely good job,” he said. Rocky Perre also stood out on the wing. “I reckon he’s really underrated,” Phillips said. “He gets a lot of the ball and his fair share of link-ups through the middle.” Peter Mylonopoulos also got a mention for his game. “He does some good work up around the ground and can also pinch-hit through the middle as well,” Phillips added. Brendon Niklaus (seven goals) stole the show though, proving the match-winner in the end. “His kicking was sensational and his overhead

marking was really good,” Phillips said. “He was really on fire, Brendon at his best.” The Rams were missing Stephen Papanotis again, while ruckman, Ben Galic, was given the week off to refresh himself and recapture his desire to play footy. Virginia venture to Hamley Bridge this weekend, looking to keep the ball rolling. “Number one is attitude,” Phillips said. “We’ve got to focus on getting a good start and continue doing the things we have to do.” Mallala has a big opportunity to get back on the winners’ list, taking on Hummocks-Watchman Eagles at Lochiel. Lubcke will resume his seat at the helm once more. “We’re really looking forward to the next few games,” he said. “Hopefully we can get some wins on the board and get a few more players back. “We just need to regroup a bit and keep building the momentum up again.”

Wells girls topple table toppers In the biggest upset so far this season, third ranked Two Wells defeated reigning premiers and top placed Hummocks on their home turf at Lochiel. The Two Wells team led from start to finish, beginning with a ripper first term, up by seven at quarter time. Hummocks kept the score even in the second, but fell away in the last two quarters, losing each by five goals. Final score: Two Wells 48 to Hummocks 31. Hummocks have dominated the top of the ladder so far this year. They have only lost once previously to Hamley, and these two sides have dominated the competition. However, Two Wells stamped their authority on Saturday, winning by 17 goals. It’s a great time to reach peak performance and coach Stacey Gameau was satisfied with the win. “We tried some new plays and combinations which seemed to work in our favour,” she said. “Our defenders set us up well getting lots of deflections, intercepts and rebounds.” Stacey won best player on Saturday, but

Courtside with Merridy Manuel said all her girls deserved a mention as they were impressive against the top team. Two Wells brought on fresh legs at half time and Hummocks coach and GS left the court part way through the third quarter due to illness. Two Wells has played Hummocks twice already this season and lost by nine and seven respectively. For the record, Two Wells has lost to Hamley twice also, once by eight and just a fortnight ago, lost by only one goal. Seems things are warming up between the top three sides! Hummocks coach, Sam Nicholls said the game was really disappointing. “We never seemed to be fired up. “We did have some opportunities but we let Two Wells dictate too much, it just wasn’t our day.” Sam went as far as to say it was probably the worst loss she has been involved with at the

club, (or was that the virus talking?). However, all the girls are determined to change the tide next week. Sarah Young returned from injury and won best player for Hummocks. Hamley cleans up at Balaklava The warm conditions and skilled Hamley side proved too hot for the Peckers on Saturday. The Hamley girls blitzed the first quarter and were ahead by 13 goals at the first break. The tide did not turn, although Balak only conceded one extra goal in the final quarter, but by then it was too late. Balaklava coach, Tess Pollard may have wished she was still away on holidays! Tess commented that Hamley’s height in both goal rings was a significant factor. “Excellent goal shooting from Hamley’s GS, Amber Rogers and great interceptions from GD Lee Barnett proved far too strong for the Balak side,” said Tess. The two centre players tussled it out and both caught the umpires’ eyes. Lauren Michael moved into centre position in the second half, which helped the Balak pace through the mid court. She was awarded best player for Balaklava and Ashleigh Hornsey,

in centre for Hamley, won best for her team. Mallala doubles the score Mallala headed to the indoor Virginia courts on Saturday and came away with a tidy 34 goal win, doubling Virginia’s score, 68-34. The Mallala girls were determined to put in a solid four quarter effort in preparation for the coming weeks. “We had specific things we wanted to work on and the girls followed through,” Mallala coach, Katie Kreig said. “We’ve been working hard on defensive pressure and this paid dividends yesterday.” Mallala made changes in the last quarter and dominated play. Mallala’s best player was again Diana Feeley, who was best last week. Virginia coach, Shelley Williemsen was again trying new players with one netballer playing after having had a baby only two weeks earlier! Selina Caruso has earned her spot at WD for Virginia, having come up from the A4 side. Virginia’s best player was Sarah Smith, who has been best player every week bar one! This Week This Saturday, games are at 12.30 and conditions could be wet. Hamley take on Virginia at home, Hummocks are at Lochiel again, playing against Mallala and Two Wells tackle Long Plains at Two Wells. Balaklava have the bye.

SPORT v Netball

Hamley girls run out comfortable winners Balaklava v Hamley BriDGE

A1: A well-oiled Hamley Bridge was far too strong for Balaklava, running out winners by 25 goals. Hamley fired out of the blocks with goalies Amber Rogers and Chelsea Modra working hard in the ring, scoring the first nine goals of the game. Balaklava struggled with Hamley’s fast moving game with many players making silly errors. HB 16 – Bva 3. Hamley continued to work hard in order to increase their demanding lead. Balaklava defenders Alexandra Wilson and Sophie Kupke fought hard to turn the ball over. Both teams threw away a lot of passes. WD Ella Mickan took a couple of big intercepts which lifted her team. HB 26 – Bva 8. Balaklava showed much more fighting spirit at the start of the third quarter. Shooters Nadene Wehr and Sally Arbon created a lot more space in their attacking end and received a couple of easy passes, resulting in some quick goals. An even score for the quarter was seen at the injury time-out. Lauren Michael brought some pace in centre and got her hands to a few crucial intercepts. Hamley stepped it up and the strength of Amber Rogers in the ring helped her team to win the quarter by six. HB 41 – Bva 17. Hamley’s defensive pressure was incredibly tight and their rebounding pushed their lead further. Balaklava just couldn’t match the accuracy of the Hamley goalies who rewarded the efforts of the rest of their team. Final scores: HB 54 – Bva 29. A2: In a fast and furious game, the goalies were the difference. Both teams had good passages of play, but Balaklava strength tipped the balance in their favour running out winners by 21 goals. Balaklava goalies had multiple shots at goal in the first quarter but wasted many opportunities. Carly Friedrichs back in her usual position at centre creating lots of drive. The Peckers certainly looked the goods. Cass Powell also played well at GA. Bal 16 – HB 9. Tight defence and a physical brand of netball by HB made it harder in the second and HB were able to peg back the lead. Jodie Grantham in centre for HB was tough and involved in several turnovers for her team. Again Balaklava’s accuracy in the goal circle lifted, capitalising on some strong defence by Tenayah Renshaw and Jane Harding. Bva 31 – HB 15. Some inaccurate shooting by HB goalies failed to make the most of some lovely turnovers down court. Brianna Wedding worked hard but was unable to finish off in the circle. Again, Balaklava’s Carly Friedrichs and WA Elyce Pollard brought the ball quickly down-court. Despite increasing pressure from the HB defenders, the Balaklava goalies were able to score freely with some lovely shooting from GS Kellie Michael. Bva 45 – HB 26. Some basic errors by Balaklava early in the last allowed Hamley a run of goals, bridging the gap. Balaklava settled and reverted back to their style of play enabling them to regain their confidence. Goalies for both teams were shooting with better accuracy, but it was Balaklava’s Kellie Michael GS with her speed in the circle that made the difference. Final scores Bva 59 – HB 38. A3: Balaklava started the game strongly with five quick goals before Hamley scored. They picked up the loose balls and were able to capitalise on it with help from Renee McPharlin, GS, and Tash Manno, GA.

n michelle Veitch, Balaklava passes to teammate Sam Florence, as Hamley Bridge goal keeper, Belinda Prior looks to intercept, and Eleisa Hancock leads for Balaklava. The second quarter started more evenly with both teams applying lots of pressure the length of the court. Balaklava made the most of their turnovers and their lead increased. Tanya Rademacher was strong at GK for Hamley Bridge. Sharayah Hall at GD for Balaklava and Shannon Hunt at GK. Hamley picked up the momentum in the third quarter keeping the score even throughout most of it. Balaklava took a while to get into the third, but gradually

flowed smoothly. Bal 16 – HB 5. Hamley made some changes in the goal circle evening up the play. Balaklava’s defence all down the court equalled some turnovers. However, poor passing let them down. Emma Fry stood out for the quarter at GS. Bva 32 – HB 14. Fresh legs to Hamley with Amy McCabe left Hamley with lots of run. Hamley used their height in the ring taking lots of lobs and getting their rebounds. Pauline Florence was strong at WD for

Tina McIntosh, C, and Ciara Guy, GS, both stood out for the quarter. Ciara came into the fourth quarter very confident in her shooting. In the end, Balaklava easily won the game by a margin of 35. A4: Costly turnovers to Balaklava resulted in Hamley Bridge goals. Balaklava soon recovered the goals thanks to some very accurate shooting by Ellie Reusch. Balaklava game through centre court

Plains Producer, Wednesday July 25, 2012

Balaklava. Bva 47 – HB 23. Hamley swapped Mia Langtry out of goals to match the height of Balaklava GS Ellie Reush which resulted in some turnovers in rebounds. Hamley WD Toni Jolly had a great last quarter. Final scores: Bva 64 – HB 32. A5: Hamley Bridge got off to a flying start having shot four goals before Balaklava settled into the game. Bev Carson shot very well for Hamley. Emily Taylor, WA, helped Balaklava turn the game around by winning the

majority of centre passes. Bva 13 – HB 11. Balaklava found their rhythm out-scoring Hamley in the second quarter with some excellent defensive work from Shauni Tiller and Erin Tilley. Rachael Easten also defending well for Hamley. Bva 26 – HB 18 Sophie Parker and Emily Taylor combined well in the centre court for Balaklava providing solid forward movement to goalies Gabbi Smith and Shannon Hunt. Rebecca Fritz putting in some solid defence work for Hamley. Bva 37 – HB 24. Hamley were off to a good start in the last quarter scoring five goals without Balaklava scoring. Some good shooting by Bev Carson in GA. Strong work in WD from Ashley Fritz. Very strong defence by Shauni Tiller, Erin Tilley and Gabbi Smith getting her eye in helped ensure the Balaklava girls stayed in front to take the win. Final scores: Bva 41 – HB 32. C1: A strong second quarter by Hamley Bridge set up a close three goal victory in a tight game against Balaklava on Saturday. Good passing by Balaklava resulted in clean effective play in the first quarter. Both teams attacked loose balls. Great play by Hamley’s Amy McCabe and Kelsey Wedding kept them in the quarter. Hamley regained their desire in the second quarter lifting all over the court. Great shooting by their GS Nadia Lantree provided a ten goal turnaround. Bva 17 – HB 23. Balaklava made changes bringing Lexie Tiller out to GA providing strength into goal ring. Sarah Heaslip did well at GD with Zoe Bell at GK. Good defence by both teams. Balaklava brought the gap closer by two goals. Bva 24 – HB 28. Another tight quarter played with a finals-like atmosphere. Kirrily White came into goals combining well with Lacee McPharlin. Amy McCabe steadied the ship for Hamley and their goalies Kelsey and Tyler Powell made most of their opportunities. Final Scores: Bva 33 – HB 36. B GradeAway: Balaklava Away v Mallala. Balaklava showed their dominance over Mallala with a very convincing 38 goal win. Balaklava were very strong in defence all the way down the court. Scoring was very one sided in the first half. Balaklava’s GK Vicki Logan shut down the Mallala goal circle which only scored 6 goals for the half. A credit to the Mallala team who never gave up the fight. Balaklava’s Cheyenne Nesbit also applying intense defensive pressure. At half time Bva Away 27 – Mal 6 The third term saw better play from Mallala, scoring 8 goals for the quarter. Balaklava stepped up their attack with some accurate

shooting from Carly Williams, helping to extend their very healthy lead. Bva Away 40 – Mal 14 Not much changed in the last term, Mallala trying hard and Balaklava passing and playing well all over the court. Final Score Bva Away 55 – Mal 17 B Grade: An entertaining match between these teams saw Hamley Bridge come away with the win. Bva 14 – HB 38 Both teams began the game well with strong ball movement. Hamley Bridge eventually gained control and finished the quarter well. Bal 4 – HB12 Hamley Bridge dominated the second term, keeping Balaklava scoreless. To their credit Balaklava kept the defensive pressure on in a very one sided quarter. HB 25 – Bal 4 Desperation netball from Balaklava saw them outscore Hamley Bridge in the third term by two goals. Bal 10 – HB 29 Hamley Bridge regained control in the last term. Balaklava continued their form from the third term, but Hamley’s lead was just to big. Final Score Balaklava 14 – Hamley Bridge 38 C2: The game was played in good spirits with the score reflecting the competition ladder. Balaklava 36 – Hamley Bridge 2 Balaklava started off slow, with a tightly contested quarter it didn’t reflect in the score. Great defending by Bianca Smith and Sophie Wehr gave

Balaklava goalies more opportunities. Bal 8 – HB 1 Madison Bond continued to score freely for Balaklava, supported well by Teisha Harkness and the speed of Claudia Tiller. Debra Lambert and Shakira Fuller worked hard for Hamley Bridge but again Balaklava’s defence denied them results. Bal 15 – HB 1 Both teams made many positional changes. Teisha Harkness continued the supply to Balak’s goalies, they didn’t let her effort down. Amy Langdon intercepted well on the goal line. Again the score didn’t reflect the quality of the game. Some great passages of play by both teams. Bal 28 – HB 2 Mikaela Tiller stepped up in the last term with some great leads and play making, in combination with GS Bianca Smith. Final Score Balaklava 36 – Hamley Bridge 2. D1: Only one goal separated them at the final whistle, a very tightly contested game. Balaklava 9 – Hamley Bridge 8. Avery even start from both sides saw Hamley Bridge score the first goal. Shakira Fuller (HB) and Sianna Bond (Bal) were stand out players in the first term. Bva 1 – HB 2 Again it was Hamley Bridge scoring first with Kimberley Sellars (GA) playing well. Balaklava responded with Rhea Lawless (c) driving the ball into attack. Another very tight quarter. Bal 2 – HB 3 Both teams made changes with the third being another

even quarter. Jesika Coles (HB) and Lexi Taylor (Bal) playing well for their teams. Bva 5 – HB 5 The last term saw some great shooting under pressure. It was goal for goal with Balaklava finally coming out on top. Final Score Bva 9 – HB 8 D2: Very tight defence by both teams. Balaklava displayed outstanding defending and intercepting skills which helped them win the game. Bva 8 – HB 0 First goal by Balaklava GS Kaia Binka and great defending by HB GD Emily Heathfield. Great defence by Balaklava’s GD Brielle White and WD Tari Lane. Great pressure by both teams lead to only one goal being scored. Chloe Lamond played well at WA. Bva 3 – HB 0 Again first goal by Kara Binka with strong support from all team members. Hamley Bridge defence also very strong. Great defending and intercepting by Balaklava’s GD Olivie Loy. Very tight in defence in the goal ring for Balaklava with great play buy Balaklava’s WA Charlotte Davey and GK Tori Lane. Bva 5 – HB 0. Great passing by Kate Barnett HB and good defence by GD Libby Cleary. Balaklava still very strong with great play down the court. Brilliant effort by Jorjah Pike in the goal ring for Balaklava.

‘Lifes Kind of Magic’ for John

Golf Balaklava

With his authoritative command “OK cats - let’s creep!”, starter Peter Thompson, late of the 20th. century, sent we 20 scurrying out on to the greensward for the Balaklava Free Choice Trophy, a Stroke round and also for some, the finals of the Winter Shield. A resurgent Bill Parkin (74/72) called on the services of the dreaded Count Bach to head off his fellow A Grader Bill Lokan (84/72) and pop Peter Thompson (81/72) into 3rd place. Left to discuss the lead article in their latest subscription copies of “The Nursing Mother” were D Taylor (86/74), S Michael (93/80), M Hameister (91/81) and P Freebairn (93/82). Bill Berry (89/71) again bludgeoned the B Graders into submission, hoicking the Balaklava Free Choice Trophy into the bargain. Graham “Emu” Ackland (88/72) was good enough for 2nd, while Dave “Duck Dodgers” Rodgers (91/73) grabbed 3rd. Patricia Anderson (91/75) led the stragglers home, which comprised G Sonntag (103/83) and J Michael (105/87). Mike Hahesy (104/76) pushed Peter Friedrichs (100/76) into second place, who in turn turned the trick on Greg Anderson (103/76). Left to ponder their shoe laces were A Henstridge (100/79), D Trickett (104/83), J Bastian (114/85) and M Smith (121/91). John Michael smote the sole Birdie on the 3rd, while Nearest The Pins were held by Scott Michael (2nd), Doug Taylor (3rd), Peter Freebairn (8th), Greg Sonntag (10th) and Peter Thompson (15th). Bill Berry got the full tote 6 Golfer of the Winter points, followed by Graham Ackland 5, Bill Parkin 4, Bill Lokan 3, David Rodgers 2 and the huddled masses, one apiece. The Winter Shield Grand Final saw Bill Parkin defeat Bill Lokan 3/2 in the A Grade, David Rodgers grind down Greg Sonntag in the B Grade 5/4, then Dean Trickett get past Mike Hahesy 3/2 in the C Grade. This Saturday we’ll stage the Royal Hotel two-Person Ambrose spectacular, to be dispatched by Ian Michael, then patched up by Scott Michael as he persons the 19th.

bers when playing last week , July 15, to see the damage done to a fairway by someone in their vehicle, possibly on Saturday night. As a community we need to be observant and notify police if anything out of the ordinary is occurring, to prevent further incidents. Our course is maintained by members on a voluntary basis, who put many hours of hard work to keep it in a good condition. It will take years for the grasses to regrow and cover in the places that have been damaged.

On Saturday, 34 players or 17 pairs played for the Andrew Phillips memorial cup in a two-person Ambrose competition. The cup was won by Club Captain Leigh Durdin and his Father Neville Durdin with a nett 59, while another father and son combination, Barrie and Bradley Zerna came in second with a 60.25, and grabbing third spot on the podium were George Dahlitz and Colin Doudle 62, who just managed to stay in front of Bert Pearce and Ian Ferguson 62.25, Vince Zito and Steve Howe 62.5, John Mitchell and Noel Stringer 62.75. Nearest to The Pins: Barrie Zerna 9, Barry Schwartz 12. A two-person Ambrose competition will be held every year in honour of the Late Andrew Phillips, who spent countless hours working on the golf course, as well as being treasurer and a former Captain along with other duties too numerous to mention.

Saturday July 21, Stroke, sponsored by Bailey’s Steel Supplies. It was the final round of Club Champs and 26 contenders were sent out together to play this round. All grades ended up with the winner getting home by two strokes in some very tight golf, which did make for some large scores. Congratulations to Stuart Grigg for becoming Club Champ for 2012 as well as picking up the best A Grade net score and the putting trophy over the four rounds. B Grade saw Rick Wendland successful making up 10 strokes to defeat Ian Smith. C Grade winner was Stephen Kelly who had a tight tussle with Jeff Spackman before coming out 2 strokes in front. Veterans Trophy was won by Rick Wendland by 1 stroke from Les Grafton and Ian Smith. Indicative of the nature of the day and, perhaps, the difficulty of the course, only Rick Wendland with a net 64 and Jim Weir with a net 66 played to their handicap or better today. A net 67 is required to play to handicap. Next week sees a two-man ambrose on Saturday with the Two Wells Open on Sunday July 29. We are hoping for good numbers at an Open that is widely regarded as one of the best presented around the Mid North.

Local harness racing trainer, John Stewart, had double the reasons to smile this month, when his two pacers won races at Globe Derby Park on consecutive days. John’s horses, four-year gelding, Lifes Kind Of Magic, and four-year-old mare, SomethingaboutSu, raced at SouthAustralia’s premier harness racing venue on July 9 and 10, with each horse winning their respective race. John, who trains from his Korunye property, has been in the industry for almost 45 years, and says, even after all these years, winning a race is a special feeling. “Because you don’t have that many winners it’s almost like winning a grand final in a sense,” John said. “It was good to win one race but to win two in two days was something magic.” With his wife Joy, and son Mark; a well known wood merchant in the area, working alongside him, 70-year-old John says harness racing is a “hobby” he absolutely loves, and one that keeps life interesting. “I’m really only a hobby trainer and I’ve always worked

Veterans

Hamley Bridge clubhouse was “packed to the rafters” after 77 veteran golfers completed their Stableford round on Thursday, July 19. This record attendance was rewarded by a lunch of soup and hamburgers served by the Hamley Bridge members who also sponsored the major prizes and the Nearest to The Pin awards.

REPORT: Bec O’Brien as one,” he laughed. “Some older people take up bowls or fishing and it keeps them active. “This keeps me active, especially with the help of my family (and) it’s an interest in life.” Over the years the sport has taken John and his family all over the state and seen his horses race at country tracks including Pt Pirie, Strathalbyn, Kapunda and Victor Harbor. He has also travelled interstate, mainly to Mildura, to race, and currently enters his two horses in about one SA race a week. John trained his first winner, Juggler Vain, in 1977 and in the past had as many as six horses under his guidance. Junior driver, Michael Smith, of Penfield, drove both of John’s horses to first past the post this month. • John is pictured with Lifes Kind Of Magic, who won recently at Globe Derby Park.

Twin sisters, Jessica and Lisa Origliasso, are the band’s main members Earlier singles including “4ever”, “Everything I’m Not”, and “Leave Me Alone” from the album “The Secret Life Of…” (2005) were massive hits, while “Untouched” and “Take Me on the Floor” from the 2007 album “Hook Me Up” certified their star status. It’s been a long time coming but a third album, “Life on Mars”, is to be released later this year. On Friday, the first single from that album, “Lolita”, will his shelves. Given the previous success of the group, “Life on Mars” is sure to have an impact on the charts at some stage. Now, I would love to give fans a preview of what “Lolita” sounds like but there is literally nothing out there as yet.

Good News Ken Packer

Usually, a sneak peak or something like that is leaked before the song’s release but the girls have kept it tightly under wraps it seems. I guess we will all have to wait until Friday. I’m going to have a brief sook (drop-lip moment) about having to wait that long but I’m sure I’ll get past it. On a different note, I think it’s time radio stations acknowledged they are alienating listeners by continually playing Carly-Rae Jepsen’s single, “Call Me Maybe”, several times a day. I’m usually a peaceful critter but hearing that song for a third time during a standard work day just about caused a domestic later that night when looking for someone to vent my frustration on. The song has run it’s course, let’s never hear of it ever again. Tune in next time, ‘coz I’m Mr Brightside.

Rams claim major scalp

PECKER Glenn Dawson flies up the back of Bomber Brad Nicolai in Saturday’s A grade clash at Balaklava, while Pecker teammate Jonathon Brice is also in position, and Bomber Nathan Flynn swoops in ready to punch the ball away. Dawson bagged seven goals for his side in an easy win. PHOTO: LISA REDPATH

the Final Siren with Les Pearson VIRGINIA claimed a major scalp in its quest for the hotly contested second spot on the ladder, defeating Mallala by 14 points at Virginia on Saturday. The Rams got off to a flyer early, slamming on five goals to one in the first term. Mallala were playing catch-up all day and despite being full of running towards the latter half of the match, the Magpies were unable to claw back the early deficit. One big out for Mallala was their coach, Steve Lubcke, who was an assistant coach for the South Australian State Country Team. Assistants, Chuck Berry and Neil Burton, took over in his absence. Virginia coach, Greg Phillips, was impressed with the standard of footy. “Conditions were perfect and it was a pretty good game played in good

spirit,” he said. With the Rams’ sponsors watching from their marquee, the team delivered a polished performance. “It was a rewarding for all supporters of Virginia Football Club,” Phillips said. He was particularly impressed with the form of his back line, the likes of Adrian Mark at full back and Emmanuel Tsimiklis defending well. “Adrian Mark has been stepping up and Podge (Tsimiklis) is playing the best footy I’ve seen him play in the five years I’ve been here,” Phillips said. They were complemented by Daniel Kerr, Nathan Warren, and in a slight structural change, Graham Rigney. “He did play back pocket a few years ago and is very good at mastering and controlling things back there,” Phillips said. n Continued page 19
