Our secret is out!

Les Pearson reports:

SOME of the state’s best on-stage talent wowed audiences across three days of competitions and performances of the Balaklava Eisteddfod. Eisteddfod committee president, Bronny Cottle, said it was another great year for the annual event, garnering excellent support from spectators and competitors alike. Balaklava students to excel over the weekend included Contemporary Vocal Ensemble Champions, Vanessa Barry, Ciara Guy and Tayla Fabry. Aliza Hedaux was crowned Speech

and Drama Champion, while Marni Greenshields, Casey Lawrie and Lacee McPharlin were Vocal Duet and Trio Champions. About 2000 performers made their way to the stage throughout the event, over 388 separate performances, equivalent to 15 two-hour concerts.

Mrs Cottle paid tribute to all those who helped keep the show running. “I am in awe of the committee, which has worked tirelessly all year in preparation for this weekend,” she said. “They are remarkable in their skilled area and a delightful group of people to work with. “A huge thank you to all our convenors, who made the past three days run so smoothly. “To their teams of helpers, we thank you.”

NEWS v District n MARINE PARKS:

Council to seek more detail on fish zones WAKEFIELD Regional Council will decide on how it advocates the local community’s concerns surrounding the establishment of notake sanctuary zones within Marine Park 14, which would drastically affect both recreational and commercial fishing at Port Wakefield, next month. Council opted to defer any decision on its stance regarding the parks until it receives another report from chief executive officer, Cate Atkinson, following discussions with the recently formed Marine Park 14 Action Group (MPAG), which meets tonight (Wednesday). In general, councillors were supportive of the MPAG’s plight to alter the no-take zones but were hesitant to suggest council agrees ‘in principle’ to the establishment of marine parks, as written in the recommendation listed in the agenda. Western ward councillor, Darryl Pain, suggested council get some insight from the MPAG before going ahead with any contact with the State government regarding the marine parks. “Instead of putting this recommendation through and even writing to agree in principle and sending it to anyone, maybe we defer this until the CEO has time to attend a meeting with the Action Group,” Cr Pain said. “I think if we send anything to anyone suggesting we support and approve the establishment of the marine parks before we have a submission, we should at least first present the alternative size and location of zones everyone seems to be happy with.” Part of the report by Mrs Atkinson was a recommendation for council to write to the Fisheries Council of South Australia in response to the draft Commercial Marine Scalefish Fishery Management Plan. This was a separate issue to the debate about Marine Park no-take zones. “Council received a request from Fisheries Council for comment on the management plan, so I took the opportunity to identify it as part of this because I think it is another avenue to reinforce the desire the council has to retain a commercial and recreational fishing base in the area,” Mrs Atkinson said. The recommendations were amended, to state receives a further report following consultation with the MPAG prior to determining its response to the proposed Marine Park Sanctuary Zones. Council delegated Mrs Atkinson to prepare a submission to the Fisheries Council of South Australia, pending any announcement of the public consultation period regarding the marine parks from the State government. Both Mayor, James Maitland, and WRC corporate services manager, Steve Jonas, are believed to be attending tonight’s MPAG meeting.

Join us as we wish our Hoyleton Olympians David and Hayley Chapman a steady hand and straight shooting, as they ...

From a small country town to a media frenzy, Olympians David and Hayley Chapman are in London ready to compete and have so far been bombarded by media and the Olympic way of life. “BAM!” is the only way David’s wife and Hayley’s mum, Karen Chapman, can describe what the confrontation has been like for the father and daughter duo. “The media coverage has been overwhelming over the past month. “They have been approached by The Sunday Mail, Channels Seven Nine, Ten and Foxtel – it’s been full on” Karen said, who decided not to travel to London. While being interviewed by a number of media sources, Hayley and David were also seen in the audience of ‘Hamish and Andy’s Gap Year’, which was filmed in London and aired last Thursday. Their Hoyleton home was also visited by the crew from ‘Sunrise’ before David and Hayley’s departure, with their story broadcast on Channel Seven. Hayley is competing in the 25 metre pistol today from 9am, and David will be competing in the 25 metre pistol rapid fire tomorrow and Friday. “I haven’t been nervous yet, but with Hayley’s event coming up, that will change!” Karen said. David will return home the day after his event, while Hayley will stay on to watch various events, including the pentathlon on the last day, in which her friend Chloe Esposito is competing.

Portrayed as a father and daughter duo, they have been recognised by many people, including former Australian Cricketer, Steve Waugh. “We met Hayley in Melbourne after she completed a training camp, and bumped into Steve. He looked at David and Hayley and recognised them straight away,” she said. They also make history as the only father-daughter combination to compete in the same Olympic games for Australia. “They are a good team. David steadies Hayley and Hayley brings out the excitement in David,” Karen said. Settling in to the Athlete’s Village and Olympic life, Hayley has revealed to the 2012 London Olympic media, that she is loving her time there. “The people inside the village are amazing, all volunteers are fantastic and all athletes are there for the same reason and are all lovely,” Hayley said. While also enjoying the many choices on offer in the Athletes Village dining hall, Hayley is thrilled she can share the experience with her dad. “Dad and I have a fantastic relationship, and I just love seeing him at breakfast and walking around the village and being able to experience everything with him,” she said. We hope to see them both return home with a medal or two. Good luck David and Hayley!

NEWS v District

Port Wakefield signs delayed Port Wakefield’s sign saga continues, with Wakefield Regional Council set to go back to community consultation once more. The vehicle way-finding sign in front of Port Wakefield Bakery is almost certain to be amended. The bakery’s owners have previously raised grievances about the large sign, blocking the view in and out of their shop. Representing the bakery, Francis Wilson fronted public question time at the council meeting last week. “I would like to know why the sign was put up without consultation with us, we were never contacted at all,” she said. “Why was there no consideration given to the visual impact of it?” Mrs Wilson also claimed to have a petition signed by more than 100 residents calling for the sign’s removal. Western ward councillor, Richard Pain, felt the locals had spoken. “As a councillor, my responsibility is to represent the community and what they want,” he said. “The sign that was originally there would have been less intrusive and just as effective. The new sign is also a distraction to drivers. “At the moment, it’s a resting place for birds and when people sit at the shop, all they can look at is the back of a sign. All businesses were struggling at the moment and putting a barrier up like that didn’t help. “That shop is an icon, well-known throughout the state and the sign that was there was more than sufficient, Mr

Pain said. “I think that’s what we should be going back to.” There were calls for the whole process to go back to community consultation, with the town entry signs’ design also amended recently. WRC infrastructure services manager, David Hassett, explained the amended town entry signs were probably a preferred option, given photos previously featured in the original design were likely to date and wear. He said the new design was also similar to the town entry signs planned for Balaklava, providing some uniformity between the two towns. Southern ward councillor, Rodney Reid, believed the new town entry signs appeared to be well supported but council should have another look at how it approaches the vehicle wayfinding sign. “I don’t see any reason to hold up the other signs when consulting about the (vehicle way finding) signs,” he said. WRC chief executive officer, Cate Atkinson, suggested amending the recommendations in the agenda. The recommendations suggested council agree in principle to the town entrance sign design. Council would also conduct consultation regarding the both the amended town entrance sign and vehicle way finding sign with the affected building’s adjoining landowners, the Port Wakefield Community Management Committee and the community through local newsletters. Another report will be submitted to council after consultation.

Pet Care

With Balaklava Veterinary Service. Ph 8862 2088

Dogs produce healthier children

Recent research has proven that a dog in the home results in healthier children – suffering fewer infections than children in a pet free home. The research was conducted in Finland by a university hospital. Respiratory diseases and other infections were tracked and recorded over a period of one year. Children with dogs had less respiratory problems and less infections. This latest research showed that dogs had to spend time outdoors to produce the best results. The theory is that dogs bring in germs from the outside world and this builds the immune system of children in the early stages of development. “Previous research shows that children need to be exposed to low levels of microbes from lots of different sources at an early age. This exposure builds resistance to infections and there is evidence to show a reduced number of allergy sufferers as well,” explains Dr Peter Higgins, veterinary adviser and spokesman for Dogs NSW. A baby’s immune system is developing and is not the same as an adult’s. The study concluded that fewer antibiotics were needed with those children that had dogs as pets.

The Blyth Tree planting group ready to move on to the next site. Enjoying the Blyth tree planting afternoon are Greg Goholke, Jeremy and Charlie Kells, Matthew and Catherine White, Peter Bennett, Tracey Andriske and Ken Bradford.

Getting ‘down and dirty’ for Blyth trees Blyth Progress Association held its 23rd community tree planting day last Sunday, with 25 people, including seven members of Clare Lions Club, enjoying a beautiful day in the sunshine and getting fresh dirt under their fingernails. One thousand seedlings were planted on the property of John Gibson and Lesley Randolph as well as the ex-railway corridor north of Blyth. The kids enjoyed collecting the

empty tubes as well as sliding down the muddy creek banks while the rest caught up on the local gossip and reminiscing of past tree planting days. One dog enjoyed rolling around in the cow dung and the owner wasn’t so keen on getting it into the car to go home! After a few hours of planting all enjoyed afternoon tea and drinks back at Padnaindi Reserve to talk about the afternoon’s activity. – JANET ZWECK

Balaklava rocks! • From Page 1 Mrs Cottle also expressed her appreciation to the local churches for the use of their venues, the caterers for the event, adjudicators and performers, and the teachers and parents who brought them to the Eisteddfod. In total, there were more than 100 volunteers who provided about 900 hours of volunteer time over four days. To capture the community support behind the Eisteddfod, vocal adjudicator, Cheryl Pickering, heaped praise on the event and the people behind it. “I have sensed a value so sound, so true, so caring, in this community, which is shining through and I have observed a commitment to high standards,” she said. Mrs Cottle revealed there were a handful of cancelled performances due to conflicting schedules but it effectively played into the hands of organisers. “For us, the event became far more manageable,” she said. “In the rock bands, we opened at

9am and anticipated that the last band would finish by 5.20pm and they did. “We’ve obviously got a good formula, which works, it’s proven now.” While performers were rewarded with the opportunity to get on stage, the Eisteddfod also proved fruitful to the local economy. “I’m sure door takings were way up this year,” Mrs Cottle said. Balaklava Freechoice reportedly cooked 42 boxes of chips at 15 kilograms per box, while both local hotels were inundated with diners. Balaklava Foodland had its lolly stocks stretched as well by the sweettoothed throngs. The work the volunteers put in certainly pays dividends in a number of ways and those travelling from outside the region are happy to get behind the event as a result. “We believe if the town is willing to do something to involve our children in things they love to do, then we should support it,” Mrs Cottle quoted from a family who travels here each year.

“Mr Napoleon Bird, 51, of Stockport, is a proud man today after establishing a record for the non-stop run on the piano, which is little likely to be challenged, and still less to be beaten.” (Got that right). “He continued to play, without intermission, for 48 hours, but not without physical discomfort as his muscles are not so limber as they used to be, but Mrs Bird sat by his side the whole time, and her presence revived him in moments when his task seemed monotonous.” “He was rescued from signs of excusable exhaustion and pardonable drowsiness by (wait for it), gentle showers of eau de cologne sprayed on him. A barber also shaved him to slow music”. Thanks, Jeff, for allowing us to have a read of this little treasure, and we wish you all the best on your move to sunny Queensland.

NEWS v District n ROSEWORTHY AND SNOWTOWN GET SEVEN DAY FORECASTS

Expanded weather watch helps farmers TWO local towns can now get location-specific seven-day forecasts from the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) following expansion to the service through a Federal government investment. Snowtown and Roseworthy were two of 31 towns across the state to be part of the expansion. Parliamentary Secretary for Sustainability and Urban Water, Senator Don Farrell, announced the additional sites last week at the University of Adelaide campus in Roseworthy. Senator Farrell said the extra forecasts meant there were now 59 communities in South Australia that could get a visual and written, seven day forecast from the Bureau of Meteorology’s website. “For the first time, people in these communities will have a location specific weather summary for the week ahead,” he said. “For each of the seven days, the

5

weather is described with a visual icon, a brief written summary and the forecast maximum and minimum temperatures.” Federal Member for Wakefield, Nick Champion, said the addition of these extra towns meant more people across the local area would have a concise weather forecast that was nearer to them. “This new level of forecasting is invaluable for the local area,” he said. “It’s great for tourists, great for locals in this growing region, and great for agriculture – including here at the University of Adelaide’s Roseworthy Campus.” Mr Champion believes the detailed forecasts will be of great interest to local primary producers. “Obviously, farmers have to make progressively bigger decisions in terms of seeding, chemicals and fertiliser and those decisions are often very big investments. Mr Champion said there was the

possibility Balaklava may be added to the expansion in the near future. “There may be some rationale or reason why they put it in particular places but I suspect they are trying to get a good spread,” he said. “They’re adding new towns as they go. This has been the second round, so it’s a work in progress. “I don’t know whether extra towns will be added but they are talking about a whole range of additional services, which will come out. “I’m not sure how they selected the towns but we will certainly try to get Balaklava put on the map. “I’ll write to them and do a bit of lobbying, see what I can do. “If you don’t ask, you don’t get.” All 59 town forecasts are now available from the BOM’s interactive forecast area map. Web visitors have only to click on the highlighted town to access the seven-day forecast. Senator Farrell said people look-

THE Plains Producer has a limited supply of FREE tickets to South Australia’s largest mid-year show of outdoor recreation and accommodation holiday products and services – the Caravan, Camping and Off-Road Sale. It’s on at Adelaide Showground, Wayville from tomorrow, Thursday August 2 to Sunday, August 5. Tickets will be offered on a first-come-first served basis from 9am today (Wednesday). Sorry, NO phone bookings unless you live OUTSIDE Balaklava. Hosted by the Caravan and Camping Industries Association of SA (CCIASA), the show features more than 100 exhibitors in the warmth of the Wayville pavilions. The Caravan, Camping and OffRoad Sale is an important component of the CCIASA’s trifecta of major public events that showcase the quality and diversity of latest caravan and camping models and accessories, technologies, professional services and advice. Presented between the main SA Caravan, Camping and Outdoor Adventure Show in February and the Leisurefest at West Beach in October, the mid year event particularly targets people considering entering the market for the first time and those making early plans for their summer holidays. It will include off-road elements catering for adventure enthusiasts as well as keen caravanners and campers who enjoy venturing off the bitumen. CCIASA President, Peter White, said while many retiree caravanners were chasing the sun in northern Australia at this time of the year, a significant number of experienced tourers also look to the midyear event as a timely chance to update their models or purchase new products. “The 2012 Caravan, Camping and Off-Road Sale offers outstanding value with exhibitors keenly pricing their products to encourage people into the touring lifestyle,” Mr White said.

Outlook: Isolated showers over the agricultural areas contracting to the southern agricultural area on Monday then to southern coasts Monday evening. Cool to mild grading to warm in the far north on Sunday with light to moderate southwest to northwesterly wind becoming northeast to northwest on Monday. Wind fresh at times in the west and south.

NEWS v District Les Pearson, who is never short of a word, proves just what a great reporter he is by getting an exclusive interview with that loveable bear, Humphrey B Bear, who NEVER talks. Humphrey visited Balaklava Primary School as part of his renaissance as a popular performer and children’s favourite. Les may have achieved a world first with this interview – and he did it without bribing Humphrey with honey!

HUMPHREY gestures as he “answers” a question from Les Pearson. He wanted more honey for the interview – but Les didn’t have any to give it to him. Humphrey’s friend Cate Dyer helps as an “interpreter.”

I

Humphrey tells all!

T was a return sweeter than honey for Humphrey B. Bear, when the famous children’s character dropped in to Balaklava on Monday. Balaklava Primary School and Community Children’s Centre students were thrilled to see the furry icon silently strut the stage during an Olympic-themed show. Such was the fanfare, kids surrounded his dressing room door to snare an autograph from the famous bear and there were children left crying, after missing out on a hug with Humphrey. These fears were allayed when he re-emerged to hug, cuddle and have photos taken with his loyal fans. It has been about three years since Humphrey B. Bear last toured. In his first newspaper interview since going into hibernation all that time ago, and probably his first print ever interview, being a mute bear, Humphrey revealed he was thrilled to be back on stage alongside co-host, performer Cate Dyer. Following is the exclusive interview, led by Les Pearson (LP), along with Humphrey (HBB) and Cate (CD).

Well, not really, but he’s out of hibernation and we found him hunting for honey in Balaklava LP: You’ve been off-stage for quite a few years now, it must be good to be back on the performing circuit again? HBB: (Nods head) LP: What have you been doing in your time off, it’s been a good three years or so? HBB: (Covers eyes) CD: He’s been sleeping, he loves sleeping actually. He’s been in the Magic Forest hibernating. It’s cold in the winter. LP: Three years is a long time to sleep. HBB: (Gestures eating) CD: And eating honey. That’s all he gets up for while hibernating, is to eat honey. It’s too cold to do anything else. LP: What did you miss most about performing?

HBB: (Points at children surrounding him) CD: He loves making the kids sing and dance, he loves making them happy. That’s his favourite thing. He loves songs and also tickling them. He loves to play tricks on the kiddies, and me sometimes. LP: What didn’t you miss about performing? HBB: (Pauses to think, shakes head and covers eyes) CD: He doesn’t get to sleep in anymore and he misses his honey, he can’t get to the honey pot easily while he’s performing. LP: You’ve been to Balaklava many years ago, you would have noticed a lot of changes in the town since then? HBB: (Nods head) LP: You’ve also been watching

the Olympics lately, you’re going to head over to London soon I imagine. HBB: (Nods head again) CD: He loves the Olympics, he’s been doing the Olympic torch run lately. LP: What’s your favourite sport? HBB: (Mimics freestyle swimming stroke, then twirls around) CD: Synchronised swimming. You should have seen his routine during the show, it was glorious. LP: You’re also fairly strong, it looks like you’ve been working out lately as well? HBB: (Nods head, flexes guns) CD: He’s incredibly strong, he can outlift most Olympic athletes but the only reason he isn’t on the team is they just doesn’t have enough honey up there. He likes to stay down here and visit the kids instead.

HUMPHREY and Cate Dyer with (from left) rear, Lachlan Franklin and Clare Mills and (front) Macey Tiller, Scarlett Smith, Ben May and Lucy Dixon, with her Humphrey bears. Humphrey recently signed on with entertainment company, Imagination, which is currently in discussion with Channel Nine to reignite his television career. There is talk the bear could feature in his own weekly show on Saturday mornings, while also wish kids goodnight every weekday. Other than that, charity work and school visits remain on his busy schedule, when not scanning the Magic Forest for honey. FOOTNOTE: In somewhat of a coincidence, Cate Dyer, who co-hosted during the Humphrey B. Bear show in Balaklava on Monday, used to regularly perform at the Balaklava Eisteddfod and is now a singing teacher. One of Cate’s pupils, Katelyn James, took out the musical theatre section at this year’s Balaklava Eisteddfod, held over the weekend.

Hamley shed is closer HAMLEY Bridge is not far from having its own community shed in the former CFS building, with community consultation and some lease details left to sort out. Hamley Bridge Community Association applied to Wakefield Regional Council to lease the disused building as a community shed. Council discussed the lease application at last week’s monthly meeting. The report in the agenda suggested if council deemed the community shed to be an appropriate use for the site, a standard community facilities lease for a term of 21 years would be prepared. Southern ward councillor, Rodney Reid, said the term of the lease should be reviewed before council approved it.

“The only concern I have with the report is I think, in this situation, a lease for 21 years is too long,” he said. “It concerns me we would be tying that building up and council would be tied up, for this length of time for something that hasn’t got off of the ground yet. “I would like to see the initial lease for a much shorter term because I think that’s a safer way for council to go.” Fellow Southern ward councillor, Barry Smith, agreed. “A lot of work still has to be done to get it up and running,” Cr Smith said. “I think they (the community association) would be happier too because 21 years is a long time. A lease of between five and seven years was suggested.

Plains Producer, Wednesday August 1, 2012

“The urban design work that has been done already could bring other things into consideration in seven years to what we’re seeing now and the priority of location might change,” Cr Reid said. “I wouldn’t want to hold the community by saying ‘well, this is what you were going to be doing for 21 years’, when they are heading into unchartered waters in some ways.” Council voted to support the principle of the establishment of the community shed and some public consultation will be happening in coming weeks. WRC chief executive officer, Cate Atkinson, said once the consultation is completed, another report would be submitted to council, with a lease to be approved.

SO, what did you think of The Veronicas’ first and title single off of their new album, “Lolita”? It’s been five years since the Aussie duo of Jess and Lisa Origliasso topped the charts with their double-platinum album “Hook Me Up”. There is a lot to like about the song, the pensive, electro intro gives you some indication what’s to come. The Veronicas are star vocalists and both verses and chorus are catchy and outstandingly performed by the twins. The lyrics are sexy, almost raunchy to an extent, with good reason. “Lolita” is inspired by the controversial novel of the same name, which is about a young temptress seducing an older man. It’s the trashy trance/ techno thrashing you cop after the chorus that takes this song back a peg in my mind. It probably takes this tune out of “solid club beat” status to “catchy but equally trashy rave

music” unfortunately. The comparisons between “Lolita” and 90’s Eurodance are probably warranted, as you can hear a lot of Slinky Minx, Cascada, a hint of Aqua and touches of DJ Sammy’s cover of the Bryan Adams hit, “Heaven”. It is a far cry from the rocky sound the girls started with about a decade ago. That said, I’m all for artist evolution, ala Linkin Park’s recent work with hit single, “Burn It Down”. Artists often evolve to the ever-changing taste of the consumer, with some exceptions, such as Foo Fighters, who continually put out epic rock albums. The Veronicas could have easily recorded “Lolita” as a rock song, the vocals are epic and the rhythm is sound. As a whole, it’s a pretty good song. It’s just that electro pounding hitting you after the chorus that really hurts it in my

opinion. I guess we will see how the masses respond. It would be great to see another Aussie artist at the top of the ARIA charts. At the moment, Justice Crew (remember them?), is pushing for the number one spot with their single, “Boom Boom”. These lads were winners of Australia’s Got Talent a few years ago for their dancing, how they’ve turned that into recording success is baffling but credit to them all the same. X-Factor finalist, Johnny Ruffo, is also at the right end of the charts, his single, “On Top”, now on the way out of the top 50, sitting at 24. The biggest mover happens to be teen heartthrob, Justin Bieber, “As Long and You Love Me” rocketing up 26 spots from 34 to hit number eight in the charts. He makes me sick. With jealousy. Tune in next time, coz I’m Mr Brightside.

Rural road review may bring extra income Two Wells CFS fires up the barbie to ignite interest

Two Wells Country Fire Service has stepped up its campaign to recruit new members, with a successful community event held on Saturday July 28. Two Wells CFS brigade captain, Adam Harris, said the event had been well received by most members of the public and there was a possibility of four or five people interested in signing up. Over the last few months the brigade has been trying to drum up support from the community, with large banners put up around the town and advice from South Australian Fire and Emergency Services Commission’s (SAFECOM) Aaron Hughes, who has been working with the brigade to secure new members. “The reason we’re doing this is to boost the membership so that we can continue to provide a good service to the local community,” Adam said. “If we don’t get new members we’re just going to be relying on the current crews, who are getting worn out with the increased workload. “We’re hoping to gain about 10 new members from this latest drive.” At the event on Saturday members from the brigade cooked a free sausage sizzle, handed out fliers, balloons and information, and talked to people passing by. Another similar event is scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday August 2, followed by a “Come and Try” night on Monday August 6. “What we’re going to do on this night is a mock call out and show the new people what we’re all about,” Adam said. “We’ll go through the whole callout procedure, and we’ll show them around the station and the appliances.” Contact Two Wells CFS brigade captain, Adam Harris, on 0413 2370 36 if you are interested in attending, or drop into the station from 7.30pm next Monday, August 6.

COUNCIL-owned rented roads on rural property could come under the microscope in coming months Wakefield Regional Council agreed to sell a 2.5 kilometre stretch of road reserve to Andrew Duncan, owner of property, Hughes Park, for $7500. Council had previously voted to renegotiate the price of the road reserve after an initial offer of $5000 was made. At last Wednesday’s monthly council meeting Central ward councillor, Owen Chapman, was not overly satisfied with the sale, suggesting council could offer to sell the other road reserves currently rented to Hughes Park as some form of package deal, for a total of $10,000. WRC corporate services manager, Steve Jonas, said council did offer to sell the other road reserves on Hughes Park to Mr Duncan but they had little interest in them. The whole process has caught Cr Chapman’s interest. “I’m pleased Hughes Park has been re-negotiated, however I feel $7500 is a minimal price to pay,” Cr Chapman said. “I believe we need to negotiate with Hughes Park to sell them the road they wish to buy plus the roads they currently rent while we have some bargaining power. “I think it would be in the advantage of council if we could do it in the one sale. “I believe this is a glaring example of us just not getting the value we should from our roads.” Mr Jonas said the total area of the road reserve in question was about 6.8 hectares. Cr Chapman said the road reserves were often cropped and commercial leasing of the land would be worth $200 to $250 per hectare to council. “I think that’s worth following up because on a commercial rate, they could be paying $1200 per year. “There are issues there other than just selling this road as to where we go with other road rentals. “Is council charging the appropriate amount

Councillor Owen Chapman asks:

“Is council charging the appropriate amount for road rentals?” for road rentals?” Cr Chapman posed. “The current low rent they’re paying, they’re not interested in buying.” Both Northern ward councillors, Greg Stevens and John Wood, said they would need to declare an interest if discussions continued down that path, as they both rent road reserves from council. Mayor James Maitland said many councillors would be in a similar boat and refocussed discussion back onto the issue at hand. “This is purely and simply about this piece of road,” he said. Cr Chapman moved to amend the recommendation, believing council should offer all the road reserves on Hughes Park in a package deal, for $10,000. That amendment was lost. “Council has agreed to Hughes Park’s offer of $7500 as the purchase price for the part of Hughes Park Road,” Mr Jonas said. “We will now engage a surveyor to carry out a survey and prepare the necessary documentation, as required by the road closure process set out in the Roads (Opening and Closing) Act. “This process includes some further public consultation before a final decision on the road closure and transfer to Hughes Park can occur.” Estimated road closure costs of about $4000 would be offset by the sale income of $7500.

Keep only 7kg of ‘KG’ whiting NEW POSSESSION LIMITS TO APPLY:

RESTRICTIONS will be placed on the amount of King George whiting, pipis (cockles) and razorfish that recreational fishers can stock pile in a bid to protect species. Minister for Fisheries, Gail Gago, said regulations would be amended and come into effect later this year to put possession limits for these species in place. “Up until now there has been no limit on the number of fish recreational fishers can catch and keep in their possession,” Minister Gago said. “The move follows feedback from concerned fishers who took part in a consultation process last year that was aimed at protecting South Australia’s fish from exploitation, mainly from interstate fishers. “What we are trying to do is stop fishers, often in groups, visiting local South Australian fishing spots over fishing and stock piling these popular species and depleting stocks in some fishing locations. “Fisheries officers have seen this first hand and the message was clear from our consultation that local recreational fishers who were doing the right thing had concerns. “We have taken on board this feedback and developed a solution to address the main areas of concern. “The new possession limits will

be simple for the community and fishers visiting the State to understand and will ensure we protect our valuable fish resources for future generations “The penalty for breaching the regulation carries an on the spot fine of $315 and in certain circumstances can carry a fine of up to $20 000 if prosecuted before a court.” The initial recreational fisher possession limits will affect the following species:

•King George Whiting – Restricted to six times the bag limit or 7kg fillets (72 fish). •Pipi (Goolwa cockle) – Restricted to four times the recreational bag limit (400 for pipi located west of longitude 136°E, 1200 pipi in other areas). •Razorfish – Restricted to four times the bag limit (100 fish). Minister Gago said the introduction of possession limits would bring South Australia into line with other states where possession limits

already exist, providing a tailored solution meeting the specific needs of the State’s fisheries. Shadow Fisheries Minister, Adrian Pederick, agreed in principle with possession limits but believed they were too restrictive. “Without possession limits, South Australia’s prized fish stocks could be at risk, which will ultimately affect the commercial fishing, tourism and recreational fishing industries,” Mr Pederick said. “The seven kilogram possession limit for King George whiting is too restrictive and should be more in line with the Western Australian limit of 20kg. “This gives people who go on an annual fishing trip the opportunity to catch a reasonable amount of fish for their personal use throughout the year. “The 7kg limit will impact heavily on those who only have the opportunity to go on one fishing holiday a year, especially if they are fishing in some of our remote areas of the State or on Kangaroo Island. Further education and policing is also needed to prevent the occurrence of fishers breaching possession limits, rather than trying to catch offenders further down the track.” For more information visit www.pir.sa.gov.au/fisheries

The average weekly rent has increased only $23 to $144, and is $141 less than the national average rent of $285.

Fewer people, but younger With the population in Saddleworth declining, another noticeable change has been the amount of people now deciding to rent rather than mortgage or purchase their house. According to the 2011 Census, there are 34 less people in the town, dropping from 425 recording in the 2006 census. A big change in statistics has been revealed in the median age which has dropped 11 years to 37 last year. The younger age group of five to 14 has increased five per cent to 13.3 per cent last year and the 25 to 54 age group has decreased six per cent from 36.2 in 2006.

There are more divorced and separated people in the town than there were five years ago, rising four per cent to 17.7 per cent last year.

More couples are choosing to remain child-free, with the percentage of couples with kids dropping seven per cent to 23.1 per cent recorded in the 2011 census.

The average mortgage repayment has also increased $288 to $867 in 2011, but is still $933 less than the National average of $1,800. Despite the low mortgage repayments, it seems less people are choosing to mortgage their house, or own outright.

Choral Workshop What a great day we have had at the Choral Workshop in the Uniting Church. Our talented adjudicator Emma Horwood has given all the choirs an outstanding workshop experience. During the workshop with the choirs Emma got the audience participating and had the choirs improving. What fun was had by all with lots of (imaginary) Frisbees flying to the back of the church, her interaction with the choirs, especially the younger children is just brilliant. At one stage there was a delay, so Emma got up and had the audience singing in rounds. Despite it being cold, our audience numbers were great and lots of feedback from parents, public and students saying it was a wonderful day – Convenor Danielle Mudge Stage & Concert Bands What a magnificent day of concert and stage band music on Friday. Starting with the Junior Bands, who were quite accomplished but also had a sense of fun with teacher-student on stage interactions and gospel music. Trinity, led by well known ASO and Adelaide Carols by Candlelight conductor, Bruce Raymond, won the juniors with the combined Clare, Balaklava and Riverton Primary School band led by Ben Fuller second. The Open Bands followed and were sensational. We saw timpani, tuba, French horns and our first double bass in the Clare Jazz Band. Kadina also had a swing jazz style. Kapunda belted out with New York, New York and the Trinity which won the Open and also the Champion Band performed Liberty Bell. Maitland, as always, were big and had us marching along to the Marches of John Williams. The 10 Senior Bands included new entrants Ardrossan, Temple Christian College and Horizon Christian School. The Pink Panther, Peter Gunn, Pirates of the Caribbean and Cirque Du Soleil had the hall swinging. Temple had a harp and some extraordinary dynamics to make the performance surprising and delightful. Trinity won , Pedare came second and Ardrossan went home delighted to be third. Steve Eads was a high tech adjudicator with his laptop and printer in overdrive to provide detailed feedback to these remarkable musicians who would earn a gig at the Festival Theatre any day. – Convenor Bronny Cottle. Rock bands Wow, what a day for rock bands! Each year the competition gets bigger and bigger. For the Junior Rock Bands we had both Balaklava Primary School bands come first and second. In the Senior Rock Bands there was some strong competition, the winners being Broken Stars from Kadina who performed an original they had written together.The band has only been together for four months. Close second was Rostrevor, who are always a joy to watch. Third in the Senior section was Banksia Park International High School, who put in a lovely performance. Adjudicator Dale Taylor had his workcut out for him, with the per-

Our lovable and accomplished MC, Gary Wilson, introduced Wakefield Regional Council mayor and Eisteddfod patron, James Maitland, who opened the concert after a rousing rendition of Advance Australia Fair by the 90 children in the combined Mid North Festival of music Primary School Choirs from Balaklava, Clare, Riverton, Kapunda, Owen, Mallala and this year for the first time, Two Wells.

Heavy.” The concert featured many of the championship winners from Saturday and we saw some amazing performances on piano, vocal and contemporary vocal. Three of the four champions who performed on Sunday were local Balaklava students. They were Contemporary Vocal Ensemble Champions, Vanessa Barry, Ciara Guy and Tayla Fabry and Speech and Drama Champion Aliza Hedaux and Vocal Duet and Trio Champions Marni Greenshields, Casey Lawrie, and Lacee McPharlin. Katelyn James blew us away with a highly entertaining version of ‘Shy” – and shy she was not! Aliza Hedaux, who won the champion

speech and Drama trophy for her speech on ‘things I could change’ had the hall in silence as she bravely told of her struggles and triumphs. The Adelaide Plains Male Voice Choir vocal scholarship was adjudicated on the day with the three finalists selected form the vocal section on Saturday. Jasmine Garcia, Michaela Gillard and Sarah Thorpe sang their classical and musical theatre songs magnificently. Adjudicator Richard Trevascis, who knows Balaklava well, having directed Fiddler On The Roof here in the 80s, paid tribute to the local arts community for the work they do to provide opportunities and entertainment in Balaklava. He announced Sarah Thorpe as winner of the scholarship and commented on her appropriateness of costume and her stillness in performing to suit the songs. We were entertained in two segments by the

ever-popular award-winning accapella group ‘The Fish Bowls Boys’ witgh truly amazing vocals and just so entertaining. The children’s eyes were glued to the stage as they watched and listened. These boys have won national titles and toured the USA last year. Senator David Fawcett presented certificates to the schools. Once again, I would like to acknowledged the tremendous work of the Eisteddfod committee and the Balaklava community. On Friday and Saturday there were more 900 hours of volunteer work provided by our community. We thank you all so sincerely for making this event happen for the 16th year. I am reminded of what adjudicator Cheryl Pickering said: “I have sensed a value so sound, so true, so caring in this community which is shining through – and I have observed a commitment to high standards.”

Simon Feast flies for a Two Wells mark on Saturday, unfazed by Tigers James Rundle and Simon Schulz.

Rooster charge Two Wells sinks United, now looking to Pecker clash • From back page Heath Pym, Nathan Starr and Brad Shimmin stood up in the one-sided contest, along with thinly framed rookie, Corey Lee-Chapman. “He was like a breath of fresh air when he came on,” Opitz said. “He was doing things I wanted to see from a number of other senior players. “It just came naturally to him. “Once he gets a bit more meat on his bones, he will be a very good player for us. “He was clean below his knees and great with his first gives.” Lee-Chapman’s game saw him named third in the best players for his club. “He deserved it, he was a shining light for us,” Opitz added. The only major concern from the Rooster camp was the knee injury to 17-year-old, Dylan Wise, from the senior colts match earlier in the day. Reports are he could miss between two to three weeks and it isn’t too serious. Wise has been a regular in the A grade this season. Jarred Allmond finished the game with a bag of eight goals, with three to half time from the midfield before shifting forward late. Thomson hinted Allmond has raised his hand to take on former fellow WoodvilleWest Torrens Eagle and current Balaklava forward, Glenn Dawson. “He said he wants to have a crack at him,” Thomson said. “We’ve got enough players up forward, with Lee Allmond, Ben Slattery, Eamon Fetherstonaugh, we can afford to put Jarred back there.” This week’s game against the Peckers already has plenty of atmosphere to it, the two clubs keener than ever to take each other on since their last encounter a few months ago. Balaklava leads the tally 2-0 so far this year, both come-from-behind wins after the Roosters had early leads.

n tiger Nathan Starr gets a kick away after avoiding a tackle by Rooster Sam Barker, during the A grade match. Thomson knows a four-quarter effort from his young charges is imperative. “Especially with our last game at Balaklava, we learned a lot from that,” he said. “We’ve got to keep the momentum going and do the same things we’ve been doing the last two or three weeks.” United host Hummocks-Watchman Ea-

gles in a battle to avoid the wooden spoon. “This is a mini final for us,” Opitz said. “I don’t want us to finish bottom of the ladder, so we’re treating this like a mini final.” He flagged changes to the senior squad. “I might bring a couple up this week,” he said. “Adam Pratt and a few others deserve a go, while others need to go down.”

n MAIN IMAGE: Bomber Connor Buckby takes a fall as he clashes with Ram Corey Stronarch in the senior colts match at Hamley Bridge on Saturday. n INSET: Josh Jones, Virginia avoids a tackle by Bomber Jeremy Paues.

Damaging Niklaus let off leash A LAST quarter barrage of goals helped boost Virginia’s percentage against Hamley Bridge on Saturday, the Rams running out with a 90-point win. The two sides were locked in a shoot-out early, trading goals. The Bombers were able to stack on six majors for the first term but Virginia were more lethal, putting nine on the board. Midfielder, Valor Thach was in everything early for Hamley Bridge, which led Rams coach, Greg Phillips, to shift consistent on-baller, Ben Russell to tag Thach in the second term. “He (Thach) kept them in the game until the last quarter,” Phillips said. The Bombers were 26 points down at the main break and that margin grew to 40 points at the final change. Then the floodgates opened. Virginia forward, Brendon Niklaus, again kicked a big bag, finishing with 10 goals. “He is good form up forward,” Phillips said. Overall, he was satisfied with the win but felt there was room for improvement from the Rams. “There were a few little things we weren’t doing,” Phillips said. “When the ball came in long, there was not enough assistance in the air until we started getting that second and third man to the contest. “We have to approach each opposition as if we’re playing a top side. “It’s all good to play offensively but defensively speaking, scoring was too easy for them at times.” Phillips also credited his opposition’s efforts. “They’ve got a few good players, they’re just undermanned, that’s all,” he added. Hamley Bridge coach, Ash Barnett, believed his team had its opportunities. “We were going ok and almost matching them until half time,” he said.

REPORT: Les Pearson “We were definitely still in the hunt.” Injuries through the game took their toll, ruckman, James Sullivan, defender Angus Lemmon and Ashley Hallett minding the pine for varying reasons, leaving the team with 18 fit players. Barnett said Niklaus proved a handful. “Niklaus got off the leash a bit,” he said. Time and time again, the Rams were able to hit up their big forward on the lead. The Bombers did try a few opponents on Niklaus, starting with Nathan Flynn and ending up going with Dale Norman. Despite the loss, Barnett felt Hamley Bridge controlled some areas on the ground, including the ruck, with Kirk Heberle (named best for the Bombers) and Sullivan working in tandem against Chris James.

n SCOREBOARD DUTY: Lachlan Rose takes a break from scoring the senior colts match between the Bombers and Virginia, at Hamley Bridge on Saturday.

“It was probably an area where we thought we could get on top a bit and it sort of kept us with them,” he said. Barnett said Thach was good again, Ash Natt played his best game for the season and Shane Hanson (five goals) had the chances to kick a big bag. “He left his kicking boots at home I think,” Barnett laughed.

“He had one of those days and he would be the first to admit it.” Hamley have another crack at Mallala this weekend. “I reckon we’re a real good chance,” Barnett said. “They’re not travelling all that well lately and we really pushed them last time. “Hopefully we can stretch them a

bit as we haven’t played them with all our big guys in yet. “We’ve just got to keep working at getting that last 30 minutes or so in our game.” Will Bubner, Luke Shanahan, Ashley Hallett were rewarded for training with selection in the A grade and could get another go against the Magpies. “A couple of them will get another run this week, for sure,” Barnett said. The Rams have the bye and a chance to recuperate after a good month or so, with plenty of running on the track. “It’s starting to pay dividends,” Phillips said. Virginia’s form has been telling. “It’s been really good but the next two games are a big test for us,” the coach added. “We’re fighting for that second spot, so we’ve still got to play good footy.” There was some more good news for Phillips, 56, his sixth grandchild arriving during the second quarter of the match on Saturday.

MALLALA kicked its recent run of losses with a heartening 91-point win over Hummocks-Watchman Eagles at Lochiel on Saturday. The Magpies led from go to woe, building their lead at every change while restricting the Eagles to just three goals. HWE had some inclusions from last week, with Tim Thiele, Blair Sanderson, Scott Forrest, Shaun Light, Dustin Guthberg and veteran, Joel Wilson, back in the team. The Magpies had their own key players back, with Jason Earl, Rob Montgomery and ruckman, Jacob Walsh, stepping into the starting 21. Walsh should be back for the remainder of the season, after having work commitments most of the year so far. The Eagles struggled to get score on the board but didn’t let Mallala have it all its own way. Experienced midfielder, Lee Belperio, was a prolific ballwinner, while Light won his share of the taps and Guthberg was also serviceable. Magpies coach, Steve Lubcke, said the win was a pleasant change on recent weeks. “We’ve got ourselves back on the winners’ list,” he said. “It’s a good feeling, that’s for sure.” Dangerous forward, Scott Hahn, was out with a soft tissue concern, Daniel Feeley (six goals), starting up forward. “We played him deeper this week, so his goals reflected that,” Lubcke said. The Magpies got through the match injury free, barring the shocking broken leg to Chris Hallion in the reserves, who has played some A

REPORT: Les Pearson grade football this year. Lubcke was concerned for Hallion. “Hopefully the recovery goes well for him,” he said. As for the game, Lubcke was impressed with his team’s performance. “It is tough when your confidence has been dented a bit,” he said. “There were certain passages there I was really pleased with, particularly when moving the ball from defence to attack.” Gun onballer, Joel Montgomerie, was again outstanding, while rookie defender, Jake Birchmore, impressed. “He played his best A grade game across half back,” Lubcke said. “It can take a while to get that consistency but he’s done really well this year.” Wingman, Brad Hardie, also played well. “He’s returning to some form too and starting to build again,” Lubcke said. Ben Martin, Troy Algar and Jordan Clements all were mentioned as key contributors in the win. A plucky Hamley Bridge challenge the Magpies this weekend. “They can be very dangerous opposition from what I’ve seen,” Lubcke said. “The Bombers certainly have the potential to cause a few upsets. “They’ve got some good players across their lines.” The coach’s message is clear. “We’ve got to continue the rebuild and keep the momentum going,” he said.

Last Saturday’s two person Ambrose event turned out to be a right royal occasion, thanks to its generous sponsor, the Royal Hotel. Thirty three hopefuls rolled up, paired off and pushed out into the wilderness. Upon their return, we learned the day had indeed belonged to Peter Thompson and Peter Freebairn, whose score of 73 made them Best Off The Stick, slightly better than the 73 of Bill Parkin and Doug Taylor on a count back. The Best Score was that of Peter Sellar, Martyn Bell and Graham Ackland, a miserly 64.3. A special NAGA award was given for the heroic efforts of Moya Hayes and Chris Hahesy who stormed home with 78.5. The Mens’ A Grade Longest Drive was smashed by mighty Merv Hameister, the B Grade by David Rodgers and the C Grade by Brett Freebairn, while Tanya Matz clubbed the Ladies’ longest drive. Nearest The Pins were held by Doug Taylor on the 3rd, Cherrie Taylor (8th), John Michael (10th) and Ian Michael on the 17th. The field consisted of I Michael/P Freidrichs (79/70.5), A Henstridge/M Hahesy (82/69.75), D Rodgers/F Scaffidi (78/66.75), W Berry/D Trickett (85/75.25), M Hameister/R Campbell (81/70.5), D Michael/J Michael (90/78), W Parkin/D Taylor (73/69.5), M Hayes/C Hahesy (92/78.5), M Smith/C Taylor (81/68.75), W Goudie/D Goudie (82/72.75), T Matz/J Matz (88/75.75), J Bastian/M Liptrop (87/72.25), P Thompson/P Freebairn (73/68), P Sellar/M Bell/G Ackland (75/64.3), J Taylor/B Michael (84/74) and B Freebairn/C Michael (76/67.75).

SPORT v Netball

Hamley just shy of a century Hamley wore out the goal ring on Saturday, only four goals off scoring 100. The scorers ran out of room on the scoresheet for Hamley’s GS Amber Rogers, who contributed 78 of the 96 goals. Hamley had a 17 goal lead by quarter time, and continued to extend this by about the same margin each following quarter. Virginia made changes each quarter, bringing on interchange, Jenna Lee to WD at the first break and shifting the mid court and GD later. Virginia’s coach Shelley Williemsen thought it best not to say anything this week. The struggling Virginia side are still to win a game this season. Hamley Bridge coach, Lee Barnett gave credit to Virginia’s defence, saying they never gave up. Jamie Healey won best for Virginia and Ella Mickan for Hamley. With a huge win over Virginia, the Hamley side might have hoped to topple Hummocks from their perch. But not so, Hummocks’ 44 goal win over Mallala ensured their safe keeping of pole position. Hummocks recover After losing to Two Wells last weekend, the Hummocks girls were out to prove themselves. And

Hummocks won every quarter convincingly, their best being the third, scoring 20 and keeping Mallala to just four. Bonnie Nicholls in GD won best on court for Hummocks, and C Tracy Kennett had a great game for Mallala.

Hummocks coach, Sam Nicholls was very pleased. She said the girls had made promises to each other about what they needed to do and they all kept them! “When everyone plays their position and doesn’t try to do too much, the teamwork is great,” said Sam. “The defensive pressure allowed the girls to get many tips and clean intercepts.” Mallala coach, Katie Kreig didn’t even look at the score board at the end of the game. “We approached the game with a real sense

of positivity and energy,” said Katie. “But unfortunately it didn’t translate onto the court.” Katie gave credit to Hummocks for taking full advantage of Mallala’s vulnerability. “I take responsibility for this loss,” continued Katie. “We will regroup, focus on the team strategies we’ve been working hard on all year and approach the coming weeks with a positive energy and frame of mind.” Two Wells wins after close start A warm day at Two Wells saw the home side put under great pressure in the first half. Two Wells scored the first five goals, but Long Plains found their feet and ended up winning the first quarter by one. Long Plains WD, Tori Doherty, had to retire due to illness and was replaced capably by Jess Schulz. Two Wells then snuck a few extra goals and were ahead by two at half time. Were the Two Wells girls complacent after their big win last weekend? Who knows. Whatever the case, the girls sorted themselves out in the second half, winning both quarters by six or more goals to win by 15 overall. Two Wells coach, Stacey Gameau thought the different starting lineup took her team a while to settle. The Two Wells defence swapped at half time, GD Mia Darling changing with GK Karen Penhall.

Two Wells grabs the win Two Wells v Long Plains

A2: Early turnovers by Two Wells defenders and accurate shooting from their goalies put them ahead by a few goals early in the first.

Accurate shooting by Longies GA Emma Laintoll assisted in Longies coming back, giving them a one goal lead at quarter time. TW 13 – LP 14. Long Plains came out strong scoring the first four goals. Turnovers at centre passes and accurate shooting helped them increase their lead. Emma Laintoll continued to shine with great movement and accurate shooting.

But Long Plains continued with a consistent quarter and increased their lead by another few goals. TW 24 – LP 29. Two Wells came back strong with a few turnovers by Rhiannon Wendland at GD and great shooting and rebounding by TW shooters to level scores five minutes into the quarter. Scores remained level for the remainder of the quarter. Two Wells took the lead in the last quarter to run out winners by three goals in a close match. Final scores: TW 53 – LP 50.

TW 13 – LP 1. Long Plains improved in the second quarter, especially with their shooting. Mikaela Broomhall played well for Longies. TW 28 – LP 9. Long Plains GA shot really well. New TW girl WA getting some good intercepts. Liana Juvan and Michelle Dimasi TW worked well in the ring. TW 41 – LP 21.

Emily Stringer WD Two Wells getting good intercepts resulting in goals. Good defence in the ring for Long Plains. Final scores: TW 54 – LP 27.

B Grade: A very slow start with only one goal being scored in the first five minutes. Rachael Forbes played well at GS for Two Wells. TW 6 – LP 4.

n sally Loughlin, Hamley Bridge GS.

Two Wells struggled to settle making small errors. LP capitalised quickly making up the two goals. Long Plains’ centre, Georgia McArdle, read the ball well and took lots of intercepts having a good quarter. TW 10 – LP 13. Good defence by TW GD Tayla Oakley and GK Brooke McDonald at the start giving TW more opportunities. However, LP defence turned up the pressure making TW make bad passes and decisions giving LP a chance to extend their lead. Long Plains GD, Jess Daniel was the best for the quarter. TW 14 – LP 20. Long Plains came out firing in the last quarter, with their GS scoring first three goals. Full court pressure from the Longies girls allowed them to pick off passes, and their determination allowed them to take the ball into their ring, thus helping GS Tamika Lee Chapman to score goals easily. Final scores TW 18 – LP 34.

n hamley Bridge’s, Hannah Langtry reaches for an intercept, as Stacey Faehrmann, Balaklava looks set to receive the ball in B grade.

Plenty on the line for Peckers, Roosters Two Wells v Balaklava

LOCAL footy fans have been baying for this clash for the past three weeks at least. A win for Two Wells is imperative if it is to finish in the top two and secure the double chance. On the flip side, Balaklava has to ensure it stamps its authority on the competition with finals just around the corner, and a win this weekend will go a long way to doing that. There’s plenty on the line for both clubs. Roosters coach, Mark Thomson, has already suggested star recruit, Jarred Allmond, is keen to take on Peckers forward, Glenn Dawson, this weekend. This could be a bit of gamesmanship by Thomson,Allmond with plenty to offer around the midfield and attacking end of the ground for Two Wells. That said, it would be a ripping contest to see. Both players would have trained together at Woodville-West Torrens. Dawson’s recent form has been irresistible, booting 21 goals from his past two games. Tim Hines did the early job on him last time they played, before Brad Fitzgerald was shifted to defence. One thing’s for sure, Two Wells are not hard-pressed for options at either end of the field. It will be great to see Hayden Walker take Plains Producer, Wednesday August 1, 2012

before the bounce Round 16 APFL preview with Les Pearson

on Simon Feast in the ruck again, the two giants of the Adelaide Plains enjoying a healthy rivalry on field. Two Wells jumped Balaklava when the Peckers travelled down there earlier this season. They will need to be ready to go from the first contest.

Mallala v Hamley Bridge

THE last time these two teams met, Kirk Heberle went on to kick six goals in that famous match, which we will refer to as “Heberlegate” from now on. Yes, the Bombers were in trouble after that match but it was Mallala getting across the line by 29 points in a competitive affair. Can Hamley Bridge replicate that effort? Coach, Ash Barnett, feels the expanses of Mallala oval should suit the Bombers and with Ryan Appleton back in the midfield, their stocks rise ever so slightly. Craig Taylor is only a chance of returning from his groin injury, while James Sullivan

and Angus Lemmon are expected to play. The Magpies showed some authority on the weekend, dispensing of HummocksWatchman Eagles and breaking a three-game losing streak. This match presents as another opportunity for the Magpies to regroup and get another win on the board. If results go the right way, a win this weekend would allow them to reclaim second spot on the ladder. Shane Hanson looms as a danger up forward for Hamley, while Dan Feeley has returned to full-forward in the absence of Scott Hahn, although Hahn could return this week. Joel Montgomerie and Christian Rimmer are the keys though. They do most of the damage for Mallala, particularly against Hamley Bridge of late, and will both need close checking from opponents.

United v HWE

THE winner of this match should avoid the dreaded wooden spoon.

That should be motivation enough for both teams in what should be a pretty even contest. United don’t expect ruckman, Will Banton, to play this weekend, which puts a big hole in their chances. The Tigers generally rely on Banton for their centre clearances, where they can often be fairly competitive. Hummocks-Watchman Eagles have Shaun Price and Simon Schutz to take the taps, if Shaun Light is again out due to work. The Eagles welcomed back a few players to their senior squad on Saturday and if they go in as named from last week, they probably start favourites at Long Plains. The Tigers will need to regain Ali Fleming and Peter Valle to be a real shot at getting the points. Heath Pym, Mikey Brown, Mark Pym and Brad Shimmin tend to be the names presenting week in, week out. United need those second-tier players to come out with a similar attitude and at home, anything less than a win will be acceptable. Can the Eagles drum up a last-gasp win to save themselves from being bottom or will it be the Tigers roaring their way to a clear fifth spot? The experience of Lee Belperio and Ryan Reid around the ground will be pivotal to HWE and it’s that experience that should help them get over the line in a tight one. www.plainsproducer.com.au

DEFENCE PROOF & EXPERIMENTAL ESTABLISHMENT PORT WAKEFIELD: LIVE FIRING RANGE WARNING NOTICE Test and evaluation activities involving static firings and/or firings of naval and artillery weapons are conducted at the Proof and Experimental Establishment Port Wakefield throughout the year. The Proof and Experimental Establishment Port Wakefield is a vital Defence test and evaluation capability that has supported Defence since 1929. These firings may require specific tidal or weather conditions, and are critical for the safety of current and new Defence capabilities. Members of the public may notice noise, vibration, flashes and/or smoke during the testing. There is no risk to the public outside of the gazetted Defence Practice Areas. For reasons of public safety, there is a permanent exclusion zone covering land, sea and air around the Port Wakefield Establishment. Specific details on the Port Wakefield Prohibited Area can be obtained from Commonwealth of Australia Gazette No GN 26, 4 July 1990, and is shown on the diagram below. Trespassing in this Area is strictly prohibited and very dangerous due to the presence of unexploded bombs. Any person found within the Prohibited Area or on Defence land will be subject to prosecution.

WHAT has 38 legs and can win a football game by 130 points? Two Wells against United on Saturday. The Roosters only had 19 players in their team against the Tigers, with Andrew Hardiman and Ned Seccafien’s flight back from work duties in the state’s far west delayed. Coach, Mark Thomson, said the club expected the lads to rock up by the end of the first quarter but they never made it in time. With all due respect to both Hardiman and Seccafien, two of the Roosters’ best players, their absence had little bearing on the result. “It wasn’t much different from the last few weeks,” Thomson said. His team again controlled the game from start to finish, with plenty of skill and dash in their general play. Khan Leighton was again brilliant in a real break-out year for the midfielder, while young ruckman, Ben Slattery, competed well. United ruckman, Will Banton, strained his groin early in the

match, allowing Two Wells star big man, Simon Feast, to be nursed through the game up forward. Slattery picked up where Feast left off, taking on United’s Brett Sharman, who went into the ruck to cover for Banton. Tigers coach, Travis Opitz, said it didn’t matter Two Wells only started with 19 players. “We were down to 18 players by the second quarter anyway,” he said. Along with Banton, Simon Schulz went down with an ankle, while Josh Tynan went off with a bad cut to the head. Alistair Fleming and Peter Valle were also out of the team. Opitz said Two Wells had too much firepower to cover. “Tallan Leighton was great up forward and Feast was good too,” he said. “They just had so many options up forward.” Regardless, he was not at all satisfied with his team’s output. “I thought we might get beaten but I wanted to be more competitive than we were,” Opitz said. n Continued page 16
