BENEFITS OF DECLARING A SANCTUARY ZONE AROUND PORT CLINTON TO PORT WAKEFIELD FAR OUTWEIGH THE DISADAVANTAGES

Sanctuaries will cause our fishers to lose ... hook, line and sinker! THE push to secure the long term future of recreational fishing at Port Wakefield by amending a large no-take zone at the top of Upper Gulf St Vincent has hit a bit of a snag. South Australian Recreational Fishers Advisory Council (SARFAC) has announced it supports the 62km² sanctuary zone at the top of the gulf (see separate story), which local recreational fishers believe will significantly inhibit fishing opportunities at Port Wakefield. Favourite fishing spots, such as Pelican Bay, Devil’s Elbow, The Pines and Port Arthur will be off

Report: Les Pearson Picture: Lisa Redpath limits if current draft sanctuary zones are applied. Local recreational fisherman, Jeff Sutton, was dissatisfied with SARFAC’s stance. “This is the peak body that rep-

resents us as recreational fishers and guess who the Minister is going to listen to?” he posed. “Given SARFAC is the peak body representing recreational fishermen, we’ve been sold down the river. “I feel disenfranchised.” n Continued Page 2

RECFISH SA, also known as South Australian Recreational Fishing Council or SARFAC, supports the marine park sanctuary zone from Port Clinton to Port Wakefield and all the marine area to the north of that line. RecFish SA, the peak body representing the interests of recreational fishers throughout the state, claimed it had carefully considered the scientific evidence, which supported establishing a sanctuary zone in the region and believed it was valid. RecFish SA chairman, Brenton Schahinger, pictured, said RecFish SA had been involved with the process to establish marine parks and dedicated sanctuary zones within the parks, for many years to help guide and influence sound decision making. “During that time, the overwhelming concern conveyed to us by recreational fishers has been related to the adverse impact marine parks – and in particular, sanctuary zones – will have on fishing access,” Mr Schahinger said. “Consequently, RecFish SA has been working tirelessly to minimise the impact sanctuary zones will have on recreational fishing. “However, RecFish SA does not have a policy of blanket opposition to sanctuary zones and believes they can have benefits for all community members, including fishers.” He said a sanctuary zone at the top of Gulf St Vincent was an example of where the benefits could be well established. “For recreational fishers, this is a crucial biodiversity unit,” Mr Schahinger explained. “Firstly, it is a rare inverse estuary, and importantly this unusual environment results in an extremely valuable

eco system, which is a major nursery area to a whole range of species important to recreational (and commercial) fishers such as garfish, King George whiting, yellow fin whiting, and prawns. “It is also a spawning area for garfish and snapper. Its extensive tidal channels are important habitats for fish, crustaceans and bird life. “The area is also of international importance for shorebirds and is home to 38 species of waterbirds – some threatened and 11 listed under international treaties.” Mr Schahinger said RecFish SA appreciated it was not always easy for some community members to accept the loss of access to something that had been taken for granted for more than 100 years. “If sound scientific evidence is presented, which supports the closure of any particular area then we do consider it on its merits, as we want to make sure our members can continue to enjoy fishing for generations to come,” he said. “That means the protection of breeding areas can be justified in some regions. “For this reason, RecFish SA accepts from a recreational fishing perspective, on balance, the benefits of declaring a sanctuary zone around Pt Clinton to Pt Wakefield far outweigh the disadvantages and strongly supports its implementation. “However, a case can be made for maintaining minimal shore access, particularly at locations like Port Arthur, which has been an iconic camping and crabbing spot for travellers for many years and would have virtually zero environmental impact.”

• From Page 1 The compromise from local fishers, as presented by the Marine Park 14 Action Group, almost halves the size of the zone in question. Mr Sutton believes the respective environmental concerns raised by SARFAC chairman, Brenton Schahinger, in his statement regarding Marine Park 14, are addressed in the MPAG’s alternative zone. “All those tidal areas and nursery areas for a range of species are included,” he said. “Every single one of them, there’s not another creek outside of that.” The alternative zone starts from above Pelican bay and finishes near Port Arthur, encompassing the five-mile area at the head of the gulf. Mr Sutton could not fathom why the zone included the western coastline at the top of the gulf. “I have no idea, other than it was easier to draw a line straight across,” he said. “The fly in the ointment is the Proof Range, because it should be declared a sanctuary zone too, that would give it another nine per cent coverage. “You can’t fish there anyway. No one goes in there.”

Mr Sutton felt the statement from SARFAC sent a clear message to local recreational fishers. “It does concern me, because they’re going to hold their ground,” he said. He was of the opinion the zones had been developed to target areas with the least resistance. “If you go down the coast from Clinton to Edithburgh, you won’t find any marine parks,” Mr Sutton said. “How come there isn’t a marine park out the front of Black Point? “Then there would be a scream.” SARFAC also indicated the movement against the sanctuary zone was led by the commercial fishing sector. Mr Sutton was happy to admit local professional fisherman, Bart Butson, has carried the flag for the local community but has support from recreational and commercial fishers alike. “It’s not just about the professionals but a community-wide thing,” he said. “If anyone should be held up on a pole and lauded, it’s Bart Butson. “This has cost him time, energy and financially. “If it wasn’t for him, we wouldn’t have a voice.” Mr Sutton will be speaking at Sunday’s town meeting from 2pm at Eagles Sports and Community Centre.

NEWS v District

Local projects win NRM grants THREE local projects were among 142 recipients of more than $2 million in Natural Resource Management Community Grants, announced this week. Stockport Agricultural Bureau received $30,000 for a clay trialling project in the district. Landholders in the Stockport area have had minimal practise and experience with ‘claying’ techniques. The project would improve their knowledge and skills through field workshops to assess sandy soils and available clay types for ‘claying’. It will also establish demonstration areas using appropriate ‘claying’ techniques and

encourage participants to trial areas on their own properties, and assess the demonstration and trial areas. The Upper Wakefield Catchment NRM Group was granted about $30,000 to restore watercourse at the upper Wakefield River and Eyre Creek. The two biodiversity improvement projects are planned by the Upper Wakefield Catchment Group to improve existing vegetation and biodiversity within the catchment of the Upper Wakefield River near Auburn. The first project proposes to clear weed tree species along one hectare of the Eyre Creek, while the second intends to manage weed

species and re-establish indigenous vegetation along two kilometres of the Wakefield River. Clare Riesling Trail Inc. picked up $9500 to also enhance biodiversity along the Riesling Trail. The aim is to map, enhance and promote areas of significant biodiversity along the trail. A detailed audit of significant plant communities and associated bird species will be carried out by specialists. A plan will then be developed to improve these areas by controlling weeds and planting native species. Interpretive signs and brochures will also be prepared. Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation, Paul Caica, said the grants were made to community groups across South

Australia for a wide range of NRM projects. “Looking at the projects we have funded this year makes me truly proud of South Australians and their dedication to our land and marine environment,” Mr Caica said. “It’s magnificent to see volunteer groups, Aboriginal communities, conservation associations, schools, local progress associations and primary producer groups all represented and working to understand or rehabilitate parts of their local environment. Applications were considered by a panel of community members and staff from the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources.

Peter Pan rides in with cycle trail cash Balaklava Community Arts (BCA) has donated $3000 to the Shamus Liptrot Cycle Trail community fund. And Peter Pan (alias Brittny Heslop) came along to ensure Captain Hook did not make off with the cheque! BCA supports various groups with the takings from its popular theatrical shows, with the production of Peter Pan in June another real boost for the valued community project. Peter Pan’s producer/director, Kelly Bickle, presented the cheque to Balaklava Area

Committee treasurer, Fran Henderson, in a small ceremony at the trail last Friday. “We are so grateful for the donation,” said Fran. “It’s another show of support for the project which at present is relying on donations to make it happen.” “It’s also a great example of two local groups working together for their community, something council often advocates.” In May, a dinner and auction

tralian entrants competing against 500 of Australia’s elite trainees and apprentices aged 15 to 25 to fight for gold in 50 skill and trade categories, ranging from traditional trades of bricklaying and plumbing to other skill professions such as fashion and jewellery design. The National Competition entrants have already fought a hard battle, having beaten

the best talent in 29 Regional WorldSkills Competitions held across the country. Up for grabs is a coveted spot on the Australian WorldSkills Team, known as the Skillaroos, earning a chance to bring home a gold medal at the International WorldSkills Competition, to be held in Germany next year with competitors from 60 countries

Funding completes Gwy terrace bike trail WAKEFIELD Regional Council has been granted about $50,000 to complete the shared cycling and pedestrian footpath on Gwy terrace, between the Horizon Christian School crossing to Wallace street in Balaklava. The grant is part of about $1.4 million to be invested this financial year in cycling initiatives across South Australia through Black Spot Program and the State Bicycle Fund. “This amount, together with the council budgeted amount is to continue the footpath for bikes and pedestrians from the Horizon crossing to Wallace Street,” WRC infrastructure services manager, David Hassett said.

“This will complete the project.” Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, Patrick Conlon, said a variety of projects across metropolitan and regional South Australia would be funded in order to improve conditions for cyclists. “We want to encourage more people to take up cycling which provides not just health benefits but important social and environmental benefits as well,” he said. “By investing in these specific projects, which were selected through consultation with cycling groups, we will help make the roads safer for cyclists.”

organised by the late Shamus Liptrot’s friends, raised nearly $20,000 for the trail. Other donations have come via an anoymous donation of $13,300 and Balaklava High School Forum students ($500) with the overall total now standing at $36,800. In a show of support earlier this year, Wakefield Regional Council also pledged $5,000 from its annual Sport and Recreation budget. The Area Committee is supervising the trail’s first stage from the Balaklava Lions trail perimeter to the golf club, a distance of about 2.3km. It is intended to create a trail to Halbury to be funded by State and Federal grants, with public donations and assistance from Wakefield Regional Council. Work has slowed on completion of the first stage as wet weather meant council needed to concentrate on other projects. A formal committee still needs to be created to oversee further developments and sustainability of the trail. This will build on the existing interim working committee formed to organise the dinner. Interested people should contact Balaklava Area Committee chairman, Terry Williams, at work on 8862 1977. n WHO are the ‘castaways?” – See Page 5.

blyth, brinkworth More kids .. and wages are higher

Youthful Blyth spirit According to the 2011 Census, the Blyth population has risen 302 to 608, noting that while the 2011 Census included Hart and part of Brinkworth in the area, the 2006 Census did not. The median age in the town has decreased four years to 37 last year, and in 2011 it was also recorded that there were 165 families, an average of 2.1 children per family, an average of 2.7 people per household and an average of 2.5 vehicles per dwelling. There are more five to 14-year-old residents in the town than five years ago, rising two per cent to 17.4 per cent last year, and the 65

Sally Crowther continues our focus on the region and older age group dropping five per cent from 19 per cent in 2006. The number of Australianborn residents has risen two per cent to 88.5 per cent in 2011, also making up the population was one per cent Philippines, 0.5 per cent Ethiopia and 0.5 per cent Korea. It seems nothing has deterred people from religion, with the no religion category only increasing one per cent to 20.9 per cent last year and the Lutheran religion rising three per cent from 15 per

cent in 2006. Wages have increased more in Blyth than other towns, with the average weekly individual wage rising $157 to $534 in 2011, close to the national average of $577. There are less couples without kids than there were five years ago with the percentage of child-less couples dropping seven per cent to 41.8 per cent in 2011, while there is five per cent more single parents than 2006 when there was 9.3 per cent. The cost of weekly rent has risen $45 from $135 recorded in 2006, and the monthly mortgage repayment has increased by $304 to $1127 last year.

The idea of fully owning their house has appealed to more people in Blyth, with the percentage of people owning their house outright increasing three per cent

from 41.6 per cent, and the percentage of people renting rising nearly one percent to 14.8 per cent in 2011. While not recorded in 2006, in 2011, 30.8 per cent of Blyth

were in an educational institution, of these 38.7 per cent were in primary school, 28.5 per cent in secondary school and 11.3 per cent in a tertiary or educational institution.

BRINKWORTH

44.8 per cent in 2006. The percentage of Australian-born locals has risen 11 per cent to 87.2 per cent in 2011. Also making up the population last year were English 6.4 per cent and Welsh 2.1 per cent. Interest in religion has risen in Brinkworth over the past five years, with the Lutheran group rising one per cent to 16.3 per cent, and Catholic rising five per cent to 10 per cent last year. Wages have barely risen in the town, with the median individual wage rising only $18 to $345 last year and the weekly family income rising just $3 from $617 in 2006. With wages not increasing significantly over the past five years, it’s a good thing average rent and mortgage repayments have also stayed low, with the median weekly rent rising only $25 to $165 last year, and is $120 less than

the national average. Monthly mortgage repayments have risen $142 from $400 in 2006. The percentage of couples with kids has dropped five per cent to 41 per cent last year. But in a reflection of social change,the percentage of single parents jumped to 13 per cent from zero recorded in 2006. More people are paying off mortgages than five years ago with the percentage of people purchasing their home rising three per cent to 35.9 per cent last year, and the amount of people renting rising five per cent from 7.9 per cent in 2006. While not recorded in 2006, in 2011 23.8 per cent of Brinkworth were in an educational institution. Of these, 45.7 per cent were in primary school, 26.1 per cent in secondary school and 13 per cent in a tertiary or technical institution

Let’s see....Sean Connery, Harrison Ford, Matthew McConaughey, Christian Slater, Tom Hanks (because he’s been a castaway before), and of course, my husband Scott. Throw in Derily Snook, Tania Allen, Cherie Taylor, Carolyn Weir and Marie Heaslip just for fun! Of course, the crazy but experienced cast-away, Gilligan, could also join us. Balaklava Community Arts (BCA) has cast the characters for their performances of “Gilligan’s Island”, set to hit the stage from November 23. Here’s a sneak peek, starting with the males! Gangly Gilligan is Jonathon Jenkins, with Steve Renshaw, (who has access to plenty of hats with which to hit Gilligan) playing Skipper. Gib Palmer is the serious Professor, and Marty Brice will put the plum in his mouth as Thurston Howell III. Playing his wife, Lovey Howell, will be Anne Arbon, Kelly Bickle will be the slinky Ginger, and Kerryn Takacs will play cutesy Mary-Ann. There will be one matinee performance but all other shows will include a three-course meal, catered for by the Royal Hotel. There is strictly limited seating available for the dinner shows, with tickets $50 including a three-course dinner catered for by Royal Hotel Balaklava. BCA’s Kelly Bickle said “The

I know lots of people in Balaklava who have their papers delivered late Tuesday night.

How to spot feral felines It’s often hard to tell the difference between an owned or homeless cat - not all homeless cats are vicious or feral. Neither do they all live in packs or colonies. Homeless cats generally come from two different sources - feral cats born on the street who survive against the odds or domestic cats who are abandoned or lost.

As feral cats rarely allow human interaction any cat that responds to your call or approaches you direct is likely to be either owned or homeless. If it has a collar with an identification tag (phone number, address etc) or has an “M” tattooed just within its ear (indicating it holds a microchip) it is an owned, domestic cat.

The next, and final, Blue Light for the year will be held on October 26 and follow a Ghosts and Ghouls Halloween theme.

If you are going to get bogged, make sure you do it properly!

BALAKLAVA farmer Lyndon “Herc” Shepherd is all but retired – but there’s always time for some spraying – so out into the paddock he ventured. But not very far! As these pictures (provided by his daughter Hayley) show, Herc, right, needed plenty of assistance, via two tractors, to extract the big spray unit after it bogged in a crop at Avon. Yield might be down slightly in that paddock! Herc’s son Ben, left, reveals the depth of the problem. Any further into the ground and the Chinese would have been checking his boot size!

NEWS v District HAMLEY BRIDGE REPORT REVEALS:

Their town, the way they want it THE future landscape of Hamley Bridge now has some framework to work towards, with the final urban concept design document presented to the community. Adelaide University Master of Planning students developed the 150page report, entitled “The Hamley Bridge We All Want”. The aim of the project was to encourage students to challenge and finetune the urban design and planning theories introduced in the classroom by testing them in the field against the lived experience of a community of people who wanted a say in the future direction and shaping of their place. Following several meetings with the community, hundreds of community responses seemed to suggest four major themes, which were targeted in the report. The comprehensive document makes a series of recommendations over four different categories, including connections, growth, wellbeing and environment. Hamley Bridge Community Association chair, John Povey, said the community input into the report was exemplary. “The community response was excellent, that’s the most outstanding part about it,” he said. “We had between 40 and 50 people through the various meetings having their say and that’s something the community association probably couldn’t get going.” He believed having the university students put together a report carried some weight with locals, who were happy to have some input. Mr Povey was particularly impressed with the detail in the report, which outlined suggestions for improvements when the residential development

kicks in. “They planned for the future housing development as well, as the town could be a very different place in five years or so,” he said. “Unfortunately, some of the things recommended in the report aren’t going to happen but they’ve definitely thought outside the square with it.”

Hamley Bridge Community Association member, Mark Nappa (left) with the report in Hamley’s main street, with local resident and Southern Ward councillor, Barry Smith.

As you read it, your mind gets ticking and thinking of new ideas

Wakefield Regional Council Southern ward elected member, Barry Smith, said the community should focus on a few of the report’s recommendations which would be achievable in the short to mid-term future. “Once you get them going, those projects will keep people active,” he said. “The long term things come into play once more residential development happens.” One of those short term goals Cr Smith would like to see happen is a community website, which would promote various events and groups and keep residents up to date with what is going on locally. Overall, Cr Smith believed the most beneficial effect of the report was

its thought-provoking content. “As you read it your mind gets ticking and thinking of new ideas as well,” he said. Cr Smith felt the report also touched on the issues raised by residents who attended the various workshops and meetings in recent months. “It certainly takes into account everything that everyone has said,” he said. “Then they’ve brought out the cream and picked out the great ideas pretty well. “I would also like to thank council for getting involved with it.” The report can be viewed at the town library, medical centre and community association

executives also have a copy. Cr Smith said establishing a direction to take was now on the agenda. “The Hamley Bridge Community and Sports Centre has big plans to upgrade its facilities and infrastructure,” he said. “I thought this would be a good chance for (WRC CEO) Cate Atkinson to come and meet the people of Hamley Bridge to give some ideas and direction that we may wish to take.” The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, August 29 at 7pm. “This is a chance to show that you are eager and we are aiming as a community to improve the area in which we are all actively involved,” Cr Smith said.

bullet’ solution,” Dr Hambleton said. “A whole range of issues including on-call commitments, locum support, remuneration and professional and family support must be addressed. “The AMA has for some time identified medical workforce shortage as a major health issue, particularly in regional and rural Australia. “The (Federal) government had made additional investments to encourage more locally-trained doctors to work in these areas, but rural and regional communities are still overly reliant on international medical graduates (IMGs) to fill workforce gaps.” Dr Hambleton said the AMA had the plan to get locally trained doctors.

AMA ‘has the plan’ for rural doctors A RENEWED catalogue of incentives is needed to attract GPs to practice in rural areas, according to the Australian Medical Association (AMA). The call came following the release of a recent research project, Getting Doctors into the Bush: GPs Preferences for Rural Location, which investigated the types of incentives and compensation needed to entice GPs to rural locations. AMA president, Dr Steve Hambleton, said the research highlighted the need for a robust set of incentives – a comprehensive plan – to attract doctors and medical students to live and work in rural and regional Australia. “The research confirms what we all know, and that is that there is no ‘silver

Our towns show their best for judge Alex KESAB’s annual tour of towns as part of its judging for its “Sustainable Communities” program took place throughout the Mid North last week. Sustainable Commmunities is designed to celebrate the real, innovative and sustainable practices across the spectrum of social, economic and environmental actions throughout South Australian towns. Last year Balaklava won the title for top Mid North town and a Water Infrastructure commendation for the wetlands project proposed for Moody Estate. This project awaits further study as part of the town’s Integrated Water management Plan, due to be presented to Wakefield Regional Council by water infrastructure expert Chris Kaufmann this month. The plan makes recommendations regarding Balaklava’s storm water and drainage issues, flood mitigation, wetlands and more.

Alex said she was pleased to see the adavances made over the past year, from the new skate park which had not been started on her last visit, to the developing Shamus Liptrot Cycling Trail. Making an overall tour of the town, she also visited Moody Estate, inspecting the site for the proposed wetlands and Horizon Christian School, to view the magnificent new Horizon Centre. In Blyth, artistic new fencing panels at Padnaindi reserve was just one of the town attractions on a busy tour. Next stop, in Brinkworth, Alex toured with town community representatives Barbara

Port Wakefield Ambulance station on East Street, will host an open day on Sunday, August 26 from 10 am to 4 pm for residents to discover their local SA Ambulance Service (SAAS). Meet your volunteer ambulance officers and discover the great work they do, enjoy a delicious sausage sizzle, freshen up on your CPR skills, and look at historical first aid memorabilia, dating all the way back to 1946! Locals are also invited to take a tour of the station, and check out the inside of an ambulance vehicle. The SAAS Volunteer Recruitment Vehicle will also be there on the day. The open day will focus on health and wellbeing, and will give Port Wakefield residents access to information about SAAS, who their volunteer ambulance officers are, and how they can become involved in this vital part of the community. CPR and emergency aid sessions will be held for locals to practise their skills. Though an accreditation will not be gained from the sessions, the aim is to educate, and let people know they have the potential to save a life. Port Wakefield volunteers want locals to be prepared in an emergency and understand the best way to deal with someone who is injured or may need their help. “After six years volunteering, you get to know the community, but does the community know us? We’re inviting Port Wakefield residents to our station, to see what we’re all about,” said local volunteer, Bronwyn Olsen. “You never know when you might be a bystander at an emergency, whether it is a cardiac arrest or an accident. It is important to know what to do.” For information on how you can help your local community as an ambulance volunteer call 1800 655 306 or visit www. saambulance.com.au.

Heritage Highlights

Taking pride of place in the National Motor Museum at Birdwood SA, is the Shearer Steam Car. The restored vehicle was officially handed over to the “People of South Australia” in 1975 by Mr Peter Shearer, a grandson of its designer, Mr David Shearer of Mannum. Possibly the first car built in Australia to run under its own power, it was built at Mannum and was said to have been driven for the first time in 1897. There was little automotive knowledge available from other countries so, in designing and building this car, David Shearer was quite innovative and incorporated numerous features not previously seen. The newspaper story published for the hand-over of the car in 1975 included the following: Among the outstanding features…is the rack and pinion steering

(which was first operated by a tiller, then by a steering wheel), pivoted stub axles (as opposed to wagontype steering) and full differential action through a four star differential mounted on the off-side rear hub. All shackle pins were lubricated – an advanced feature of the time. ‘The Adelaide Observer’ of October 30, 1897, said “the engine is complete, and as soon as time permits the remainder will soon be an accomplished fact.” Legend has it that the car was running by Christmas 1897. The Shearer Steam Car was

Personally, the headline acts look really good and I’m sure the 20 or so supporting bands will be just as entertaining. The big get is obviously world-famous metal band, Metallica. The band is immortally famous for huge hits such as “Enter Sandman” and “Nothing Else Matters”, while it also won aPuzzle swag of difficulty Grammys, including 39 (Easy, rating 0.38) awards 4 2 9 for 8 “One” 1 3 5 and 6 7“Stone Cold 5 1 Crazy”. 6 4 7 2 9 3 8 7 Main 8 3 members, 6 5 9 2 Lars 4 1 Ulrich, Kirk 6 Hammett, 7 2 1 3 4James 8 5 Hetfield, 9 3 9names 5 2 synonymous 8 6 1 7 4 with are 8 rock 4 1 industry 7 9 5 6over 2 3at least the 1 5 decades 8 3 6 and 7 4 they’ll 9 2 draw three 9 3 4of 5fans 2 to 8 the 7 1 show. 6 plenty 2 Linkin 6 7 Park 9 4 is1 another 3 8 5 inter-

personal favourites, and maybe a little less ‘headline’ than the previous bands mentioned. Sum 41 hits the stage with a swag of big rock anthems, including “In Too Deep”, “Fat Lip” and “Still Waiting”. For songs a little less famous but equally as good, give “Pieces” and “Always” a listen. Stone Sour would ring familiar with fans out there, the band’s huge ballad, “Bother”, released in 2002, ended up on the Spiderman soundtrack. Lead vocalist, Corey Taylor, formerly of Slipknot fame, recorded the song by himself and became a worldwide hit. A band not appearing at Soundwave but will be at Big Day Out is The Killers. It has just released the first single off of its new album, “Battleborn”. The single “Runaways”, out now, is a great prelude to the release of the album, sure to be another quality record from a quality band.

While the next band I’m mentioning got its start from having a huge hit single on the Twilight soundtrack, I don’t hold that against them. Paramore and its song, Decode, of course shot to fame on the back of that song, “Decode”, which was a great track. The band followed it up with another cracking tune, “Misery Business” and then delivered the surprisingly soulful ballad “The Only Exception”. Then there’s one of my

After demonstrating to the farmers of his time that the horseless carriage was a possibility, David Shearer did not persist with his experiment and went back to making farm machinery. The Shearer lay neglected and dismantled at the David Shearer implement works in Mannum for many years until its resurrection began in the 1960s. Some 10 years later, it was finally placed in the National Motor Museum at Birdwood. It is now 115 years old.

While the residents of Mannum were quite used to seeing the Shearer Steam Car, special permission had to be granted by the Mayor before the Shearer car could be driven on the streets of Adelaide, and spectators could only marvel when they saw it in 1900. The horses were not used to this type of vehicle, and Mr Shearer reported, “Much profanity was directed at my head by the drivers of horse drawn vehicles.” The vehicle was driven from Mannum to Adelaide and back for exhibition and demonstration at the Chamber of Manufactures Exhibition in 1900, as well as being displayed

State Parliament comes to life WA S L E Y S P r i m a r y School upper primary class visited Parliament House recently to learn about the workings of parliament. The visit began with a lunch provided by local MP, the Member for Light, Tony Piccolo, in one of the meeting rooms. Tony spoke to students about his role and answered questions from children about the various rooms. Students were given a tour of the main building and viewed many of the portaits on display in the halls. They entered the Legislative Council where they were able to do a “mock debate” (playing the roles of members of the House of Assembly) which was a fantastic experience for all involved. Students took turns at portraying the various roles and enjoyed using props (gowns, wigs and mace). It was quite exciting for students to actually sit in the different seats in the chamber – especially the Speaker’s chair as they were told the Queen had also sat in it. They also debated the ‘No Homework Bill’ and ‘Schools Should Abolish the Use of Mobile Phones Bill’.

Comments from students included: Anabelle: “Parliament House was BIG! We had to go through security before we could go in.” Matthew: “When we did the debate everyone was really good. Earlier, students enjoyed the SA Police band’s ‘Cop This’ show at the Festival Theatre. The performance also included a presentation by Westport Primary School and SAPOL officers about proactive ways of dealing with bullying.

Clare and Gilbert Valleys Council mayor, Allan Aughey, wearing his “chain of office” officially welcomed the group to Riverton, where they sampled various facets of country life and learning.

Dynamic learning resonates with PRIDE BALAKLAVAHigh School (BHS) is a place to be proud of. Its community strives to excel and enjoys sharing its achievements. We promote PRIDE as an acronym for the school’s values and these resonate across the site. They are evident in the interactions and endeavours of its students, staff and parents. n Positive relationships are the key to a safe and happy learning environment, and these are developed on a daily basis through staff-student interactions, curriculum offerings and special programs. Flexible learning options such as cross-age and community activities engender a sense of togetherness and support, whilst the “Youth Opportunities” and “Rock and Water” programs build a strong sense of self-esteem and personal development. Relationships are built with feeder primary schools through a comprehensive transition

BALAKLAVA HIGH school program. Students are supported in this important transition period moving from primary school to high school, as this is the foundation for future success. A strong parent voice is highly valued at BHS, through its proactive and supportive Governing Council. Parents are encouraged to become involved in their child’s education in many ways so that it is a true partnership. n Respect is vital for trust in the diverse world we live in. Understanding and tolerance are hallmarks of community-minded citizens, and our annual Japanese exchange is just one example of promoting this idea. Mutual respect is fostered through positive relationships, leading to a safe and dynamic learning environment.

n Integrity is shown through honesty and reliability as education is truly a community responsibility, and this value is instilled in students through our high expectations of them. n Dedication to commitments made will lead to improvement and success. Students actively engage in various extra-curricular pursuits, from Pedal Prix to Chess, from Choir to Student Leadership, all in the knowledge that if they strive for excellence they can achieve. n Excellence is something BHS strives for, and regular acknowledgement of accomplishments is a key to continued success. We are proud of both our academic and vocational pathways programs, both of which have a proud tradition.

BHS is recognised as one of the state’s lead vocational training schools, and this has been enhanced by the recent acquisition of the Lower North Centre of Trade Training. Students can gain nationally-accredited certificates in Commercial Cookery, Retail, Agriculture and Engineering, standing them in good stead for a successful career. BHS is proud of its comprehensive curriculum, which enables students the opportunity to follow their passions and prepare for their future. A strong Literacy, Numeracy and ICT focus drives improvement in students’ confidence and abilities to access the curriculum and the world. Balaklava High School is perfectly placed to provide a quality education for country students … and of this we are extremely proud.

HORIZON’S LEADERS MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Horizon’s Student Leadership: Making a Difference Eleven of Horizon’s senior school Prefects have recently returned from a life changing leadership opportunity serving at the King Solomon Christian School International in Manilla. Supported by student leadership coordinator Maureen Yeoward and Principal Mike Clisby, the team travelled to the Philippines to contribute to the King Solomon mission work which helps the urban poor in Manilla. The Horizon students from years 10 to 12 helped with a range of activities including distributing rice and food parcels; running youth games, leading a church service, painting and maintenance of the King Solomon School, and painting homes in the Riverside Slum community. The Mission experience was impacting for Horizon students. Head Prefect, Tess Lawson (year 11) commented, “Our time in the Philippines was indescribable. I learnt so much about their joy and saw that God truly blesses those who trust in Him”. Cameron Mellier (year 12) has experience leading in Albania (2010) and in the Philippines. He found; “It was encouraging to work with other Christians in another country. We can take so much away from the experience seeing the way they get their joy not from material possessions but from having God in their life”. Hayley Julyan (year 12) who also served on the 2010 Mission to Albania, said; “Going on a mission trip to the Philippines was an amazing and valuable experience, allowing me to serve God through serving others and loving them as He does”. Head prefect Jordan Hamann (year 12) also enjoyed both mission trips and said; “The experience was awesome. It was a privilege to serve people while we served God in the Philippines”. The Horizon Prefects united to make the dreams of one King Solomon graduate, Shenna come true. Together the Prefects paid for Shenna’s first semester of University study. They have pledged to Shenna that they will continue to pay for her entire four year university course. Prefect Rebecca Goldney (year 10) said; “The people in the Philippines were so happy, you could see the amazing work that God is doing there”. At Horizon the Prefects lead in a range of ways including, fundraising for charities, holding bible studies, organising school assemblies, and assisting with school functions. The leadership program equips our students for a life of effective service within families, churches, work places and the community. Middle School Leaders The Middle School Leaders program is a new venture this year for students in years 7 to 9. Students will be assisting at school functions, leading and running Operation Christmas Child, helping with Bible studies and lunchtime sports. The focus of this group is on building leadership capacity through training and development, providing opportunities for students to use their leadership skills. Waverley Palmer (year 8) commented; “I love helping people. I am really looking forward to all the people I am going to be able to serve through being a Middle School Leader.” Horizon’s Year 6 Primary School Leaders Primary Leaders are encouraged to be good role models for others. They work with ‘buddy class’ students, run Friday Lunch Kid’s Club, lead at assemblies and run fundraisers to improve different aspects of the school Year 6 teacher Alyssa Xavier enjoys supporting this exciting leadership program. “Our Primary School Leaders are fantastic role models for the younger students.” Primary leader Nikita Viney commented; “As a leader I like helping the younger children as a class buddy, in Kid’s Club, and doing Primary assemblies”. Year 6 teacher Dan Johnson commented; “Primary Leadership provides a great opportunity for students to develop their leadership skills and show their love and care for others.”

Kick start career with ‘real world’ training

ROSS NEYLON at work on a diesel motor. Ross says St Patrick’s uses machinery of industry standard, making it easy to transition from school to full-time employment.

RIVERTON AND DISTRICT High School RDHS is proud of its long history and excellent academic record. In recent years over 95% of students have graduated to employment or further study after completing their studies at RDHS. A large number of students have also been successful in gaining scholarships to support their further studies.

Twenty year old Ross Neylon never looked back after joining St Patrick’s Technical College at the end of year 10. Next month, Ross will become a fully qualified diesel mechanic and with his employer, Central Diesel, he has completed his apprenticeship while working on major oil and gas projects in South Australia and Queensland. He believes St Patrick’s Technical College set him on the path to success but is also grateful to the teacher who advised him to join St Patrick’s and recognised it would give him the best start to a trades’ based career. “St Patrick’s understands the needs of industry and aligns its curriculum and training to the real world,” said Ross. “Even for maths, English and science, the lessons are geared towards the world of work and use industry applications to teach core subjects, which makes learning fun and highly relevant.

RDHS offers many vocational pathways including: 3 Automotive 3 Building 3 Construction 3 Viticulture 3 Information Technology 3 Hospitality 3 Tourism 3 School Based New Apprenticeships

‘Pies keep Tigers at arm’s length MALLALA completed an expected 69-point victory over United at Mallala on Saturday. The Magpies didn’t have it all their own way initially, the Tigers attacking hard but unable to capitalise. Mallala, on the other hand, converted beautifully, kicking six goals from six shots, while United only managed one goal and five behinds. “In the first quarter they peppered the goals a bit but our forward efficiency was very good,” Magpies coach, Steve Lubcke said. “They probably should have had a few more goals than they did.” Lubcke’s team is fast regaining its throng of injured players, midfielder Dan Griffiths playing his first game in about a month after being sidelined with an ankle injury and James Wildbore (best for Mallala) was another welcome inclusion two weeks ago. The team did have a few outs, with tall timber, Jacob Walsh and Will Farrelly, pulling out. Luckily Daniel Chadwick was available to carry the ruck duties. The Magpies continued to keep the Tigers at an arm’s length throughout the day, their skill level a step above. Time and time again, they picked out key forwards Scott Hahn (seven goals) and Brian Montgomery (five goals), who kicked truly. “It’s the delivery in that gets you your goals, not necessarily the personnel you have down there and that’s something we’ve been working on all year,” Lubcke said. With numbers flowing back into the senior squad, things are looking

Final score mallala 18.9 (117) d united tigers 6.12 (48) Goals: Mallala - S.Hahn 7, B.Montgomery 5, D.Feeley 3, B.Moffatt 2, K.Barry 1 United - J.McArdle 2, J.Rundle 1, S.Schulz 1, H.Pym 1, A.Fleming 1  Best: Mallala - J.Wildbore, J.Montgomerie, J.Clements, B.Hardie, J.Earl United A.Mansfield, M.Brown, A.Fleming, B.Sobey

good for the lads in black and white. “It’s good heading into finals we’re getting our strength back,” Lubcke said. “We can’t get too carried away with the wins too much as they were against the bottom three teams but it’s good to get the confidence back to run and take the game on. “We were a little reactive as opposed to being proactive.” It was another frustrating day for United coach, Travis Opitz. “I can’t work out why but we can’t link up and string three or four possessions together in a row,” he said. “There’s always a break down two or three touches in. “The guys aren’t far off but we do need to bring in some good key forwards. “We’ve been losing contests we should have won. “We’re just lacking that polish. “I would say we mixed it with them on most occasions but we’re missing those three or four guys who can control the footy a bit more. “It seems most of the time we’re our own worst enemy.” Opitz praised his back line,

which included Adam Mansfield (best for United) but sent a message to his group that there needs to be a concentrated effort with only two matches remaining in their season. “We’ve got two games left, nothing to lose so it wouldn’t hurt coming out to training and finishing the year off well,” he said. The message Hamley Bridge will be out to win its second match in a row has also hit home. “We’re going to be up against it,” Opitz said. For Mallala, the news is only good, with a nicely timed bye arriving this weekend. Lubcke said the break involved a pool session last night before resuming training as normal tomorrow night. It’s an ideal time for a week off for the team’s gun midfielders, including Jason Earl, Brad Hardie and Joel Montgomerie. “Joel’s workload has been huge this year so we will be trying to look after the welfare of all the players as best as we can. “We’ve had a pretty hectic training schedule the last few months.”

Mallala’s skill, agility too much for the Tigers A grade

By Lindsay Nesbitt Mallala continued its return to form with a big 69-point win over the United Tigers. If the game wasn’t over by quarter time, it certainly was by half time, the Tigers showing some resistance in the third quarter, but little else. When Scott Hahn had a goal in the opening minute it was an ominous sign for United. The Tigers started to get enough of the ball but just couldn’t convert effort into scores. A couple of rushed behinds to the visitors but it was Mallala that were on song and on target. A goal to Ben Moffatt before the Scott Hahn and Brian Montgomery show got going. Hahn with three and Montgomery with two were just too good for the Tiger defence. Brian Montgomery was repeatedly able to run around a couple of Tiger defenders – such was his skill and the lack of opposition pressure. Scott Hahn with a ‘party trick’ goal, able to get boot to ball with the Burley in mid-air. A late major to Jamie McArdle made it six scoring shots apiece for the term, but the inaccurate Tigers were 25 points in arrears. Ruckman Daniel Chadwick was good early for Mallala. Alistair Fleming, Adam Mansfield, and Mikey Brown the best for United. The second term commenced the same as the first. This time it was a goal in the first minute to Brian Montgomery. The Tigers were nonplussed as Mallala added another five goals to one, going into half time with a 51-point lead. Mallala fans feared the worst when Jason Earl hobbled off the field, but fortunately it was only temporary. The Tigers were able to kick a goal late in the quarter but were being swamped. Joel Montgomerie was getting right on top.

Ross Sharer and Heath Pym picked up possessions but had little support. United needed goals, and quickly. When James Rundle got the first in the third quarter the Tigers appeared to have lifted, but again it was inaccuracy that was to prove costly for the visitors. Scott Hahn booted a great goal under pressure. Mikey Brown left the field to get bandaged up. He came back on then when United got late goals from Alistair Fleming and Heath Pym, it was their most productive quarter of football. United was still a long way from making a real contest of this match. Scott Hahn added to his goal haul in the last term, ending the game with seven. Brian Montgomery with the last Mallala goal for a return of five. Kris Barry bagged one of the goals of the game. United were outplayed and outclassed, Tiger skill errors letting Mallala off the hook to an extent. The Tigers had just run out of puff. United had all single goal kickers. A highlight of the game was a run around the boundary line by David Cawrse. Was that one, two or three bounces? No pressure from the Tiger players. It looked like David had a real spring in his step. Could it be the impending nuptials? Both Tim and David Cawrse held a solid Mallala defence together. Throw in Robert Montgomery, James Wildbore (among others) and its little wonder United struggled to kick a competitive total. James Wildbore was best for Mallala. Joel Montgomerie was everywhere. Jordan Clements, Brad Hardie and Jason Earl were the pick of an impressive Mallala effort. United had Mikey Brown getting lots of the ball, also Adam Mansfield. Alistair Fleming, Ben Sobey in a return to A grade, and Heath Pym assisted well.

reserves

By Lindsay Nesbitt Mallala kept their finals hopes alive with a convincing 36 point win over United. The victory puts Mallala on equal premiership points with the Tigers in the battle for fourth spot. The first half was an interesting, close contest. Mallala started well but United were able to hit back with

Carter with his third. Mallala’s Derek Tiller also had three to half time. Tiger Matt Starr, and Ben Work in ruck for Mallala, were having an influence on the game. Mallala effectively won the game in the third quarter. The Tigers were held scoreless, Mallala adding three goals courtesy of Brett Tucker, Derek Tiller and Laurie Gosling. The

When United missed a couple of gettable goals early in the last quarter, the game looked as good as over, but nobody told United that. Tigers Michael Warnes and Dylan Carter booted two goals in two minutes, and the game had come back to life. The Tigers still needed three goals in less than 10 minutes, a task that proved beyond them. It was Mallala that got going again, kicking the last three goals of the game. Magpie Matt Saunders got his second and then it was a late double for Ben Edwards. Brodee Brown was best for United. Darren Carter was the pick of the Tiger forwards, with Ben Pym, Michael Warnes and John Crosbie all playing a solid four quarter game. Laurie Gosling was best for Mallala, closely followed by Jack Dixon, Kurt Smith, Ben Work and James Barr. Derek Tiller, with four goals, had a good game. United are still in the box seat to hold fourth place. Mallala must defeat Balaklava in the last round to have any chance of going further.

junior colts

n UNITED’S Ben Sobey darts around Mallala opponent Jake Birchmore in the A grade game, watched by Mallala’s, Jason Earl. two quick goals to Darren Carter. United had good starts from Jared East, Michael Warnes, and John Crosbie. Laurie Gosling, James Barr, and Daniel Jennings having good games for Mallala. Derek Tiller kicked two in a row for Mallala in the second term, but again United came back with goals to Mitchell McIntyre, and Darren

Derek Tiller goal was a beauty and a good run on the ball. The goal from Gosling was also impressive. Ben Goudie in defence for Mallala was instrumental in restricting the Tigers to no score, along with Daniel Jennings and Jack Dixon. United captain, Ben Pym and Brodee Brown were battling hard.

By Nicholas Mathew Skills were high in both Mallala and United players, in a good game of junior colts footy. Both sides put in a great effort, it was a pity the scoreboard didn’t truly indicate the hard work the United players put in. The first quarter started off with Mallala’s ruckman, Wayne Miller getting plenty of touches, and a goal against his name. Magpie Garth Plackett was leading by example with his hardness at the ball and voice, he also scored a major for the quarter. United co-captains, Riley Curnow and Daniel Coombe were playing well, along with Aaden Wilson. Mallala’s Andrew Smith’s attack on the ball was great, along with his vision and ability to use

the ball effectively. His teammates were always front and centre, providing themselves with plenty of opportunities by crumbing the contests well. Just on the siren, Liam Mathew typified Mallala’s strong opening quarter through his attack on the ball and busted open the pack. Mallala’s pressure and second efforts continued on in the second quarter, with Tim Forst and Dougie Mayne showing the way with their strong attacks on the ball. Dylan Howell played well in the forward line, scoring two goals for the quarter and entertaining the crowd with his ‘Usain Bolt’ celebrations. Austin Kearns also chipped in and kicked a major for the Magpies. For the Tigers Connor Lane, Nicholas McArdle, Riley Curnow and Harry Green were playing well. The Magpies were running hard. Carrying the ball and good foot skills continued on in the third quarter. United’s Ashton Snowden and Matthew Waddell continued their great play. For Mallala, the O’Leary boys were playing their typical hard-at-it running game. Dylan Howell kicked his third for the game and an after the siren a goal by Garth Plackett saw the Fair Play Rule activated. With the swapping of players in the last quarter, the game evened up. It was great to see the efforts being shown by players wearing opposition jumpers. United’s Brett Robinson kicked a major for Mallala, and the Magpie players in the Tigers guernseys hit the ball hard and tackled with purpose. It was good to see kids just wanting to play footy. Best players for Mallala were Garth Plackett, Ben O’Leary and Lachlan O’Leary. For United Matthew Waddell, Ashton Snowden and Riley Curnow were best.

Big win for Bombers THE Bombers leap-frogged off of the bottom of the ladder on Saturday, defeating Hummocks-Watchman Eagles by 41 points at Hamley Bridge on Saturday. Hamley are now a good chance to not finish bottom of the table for the first time in seven years. “The boys actually mentioned it amongst themselves, that we had been down the bottom the last couple of years,” Bombers coach, Ash Barnett said. “We started well, which was good and it branched into a consistent, four-quarter effort.” HWE were once again undermanned, ruckman, Shaun Price, and midfielder, Joel Wilson, both amongst the absentees. The Bombers stacked on the goals in a solid display, including seven majors to fullforward, Shane Hanson. “If he had kicked a little straighter he could have had double figures,” Barnett said. Hanson didn’t have it all his own way though, locked in a good battle with his opponent, most likely Sam Baker, Travis Sharpe or Simon Schutz, although Barnett couldn’t confirm who it was. The Eagles were wellserved by recruit, Tim Thiele, forward Shane McGuiness and ruckman, Shaun Light. Hamley’s Tyler Miller backed up his game from last week with another work-horse effort.

“He rucked all day and it was the same thing, he played with some good old-fashioned ticker again,” Barnett said. Ryan Appleton was back in for the Bombers, both he and Craig Taylor (four goals) finding plenty of the footy. “Craig’s still a bit sore and wasn’t 100 per cent but he was very good,” Barnett said. Of the youngsters in the team, Jayden Wedding showed signs of promise. “Jayden did a couple of good things and had about half of the game time, which was a good experience for him,” Barnett added. Surprisingly, widely touted debutant, Dylan Collings, was not selected in the team. “Dylan was a chance to play his first A grade game but didn’t train last week,” Barnett pointed out. He said Collings was a chance to be selected should he commit to the training track this week. It’s a big game for the club, with prospects of notching a second consecutive win against United. If the Bombers get up, it will be the first time they have been victorious two weeks running for at least six years. “We’re chasing two wins in a row, so it’s pretty simple, we’ve got to back it up,” Barnett said. “A lot of blokes can’t remember the last time we won two in a row, so it’s definitely a big thing.”

“I couldn’t question the boys’ efforts up until three quarter time though.” The emphasis now turns to this week, an important two points against Hummocks-Watchman Eagles on the line. “We’re now in the position where we need to win our next two games to stay in the top two and regain some momentum,” Lamond said. “We have to get better with our decision making and skills. “We’re going to put the best side out there that we can. “We’ve got to win with the top four as tight as it has been for a few years. “We’re not going to play injured blokes but we’re not going to rest players just because we’re playing the bottom team. “It will be treated the same as any other game.” The Rams look to a rip-snorting clash against their close rivals, the clucky Roosters. Phillips felt his charges were up to the challenge. “Our hard training is starting to pay off,” he said. “The camaraderie and the team spirit is on a high at the moment.” After coming close to flags in previous seasons, the coach is keen to convert that into premiership success. “We have to do something different to what we’ve done before,” Phillips said. “We can’t go in the same as we have the last few years.” The Rams have to beat Two Wells to feel they’re in with a real shot. “I think they have a good half-dozen or so match winners and we have about as many too,” Phillips said. “They smashed us in the hard ball gets last time we played and they were out of the blocks early, meaning we were playing catch-up footy all day. “We can not afford to give a team like that a two or three goal head start.”

• From back page With Niklaus spending some time on the bench, believed to be carrying a niggle, the spread of goal kickers also impressed. “We found other ways to goal, which was good,” Phillips said. One of those avenues was veteran, Steve Papanotis, who finished with four majors. “It was his game in about four weeks so it was good for him to come back and play well first up,” Phillips said. Chris James and Justin Walker has a ripping battle in the ruck, while Peckers captain, Hayden Walker, was cast in the role as rover. It was an unusual move but the nimble big man had plenty of clearances. “He probably gets a lot of clearances while in the ruck and I thought with the bigger bodies in Virginia’s midfield, it was a good opportunity to see how he goes in there,” Peckers coach, Stuart Lamond said. “I thought he was outstanding.” Lachy Michael was another to put his hand up, collecting plenty of quality touches around the ground, while Chad Ruiz probably had his best game for the year on a wing. It’s about there the positives ended for Balaklava, the coach ruing missed shots at goal. “Early on, we didn’t quite capitalise on our opportunities,” Lamond said. “Particularly against the top four teams, you’ve got to make the most of your opportunities, otherwise they’ll hurt you.” After last week’s disappointing performance against Two Wells, the loss added salt to the wound. “I don’t really like losing and felt as though at three quarter time, the game was in the balance and we should have won,” Lamond said. “We had opportunities to kick goals and didn’t, they had opportunities and did.

Golf balaklava

Last Saturday, 26 players took to the greensward for round two of the Club Championship Qualifying stoush, and to contest the Terminus Hotel Trophy. The other powerful attraction was the promise of learning just who would claim the esteemed Eddie Dennison Putting Trophy and that, this year, was Murray “Smudger” Smith, who smote just 54 putts over 36 holes. Emerging triumphant from the A Grade melee was president Bill Lokan ((83/71), who managed to keep both mighty Merv Hameister (82/72) and Peter “Plumb Bob” Thompson (81/73) at bay. Then came W Parkin (76/74), D Taylor (86/74), S Michael (90/77) and M Loy (89/79). David “Duck Dodgers” Rodgers (89/71) dudded the B Graders, in particular John Curnow (90/71) with the aid of Count Bach, leaving Bill Berry (89/72) to claim third. Then came W Nagle (91/77), M Smith (94/78), J Michael (98/80) and Patricia Anderson (101/85). Malcolm Lilptrop (98/69) led the C Grade field in, trouncing Dean Trickett (90/69) on a count back, such that Moya Hayes (101/74) came third and Martyn Bell (106/75) fourth. Left to consider that their set of clubs would perhaps be better put to use by someone into memento mori were A Henstridge (98/76), R Phillips (114/79), M Hahesy (107/80), D Goudie (103/81), Chris Hahesy (110/83), G Anderson (113/86) and T Gilmour (123/87). Birdies were achieved by Dean Trickett at the 8th, along with John Curnow, plus Bill Goudie at the 10th. Nearest The Pins were held by David Rodgers (3rd), John Curnow (8th), Merv Hameister (13th) and Martyn Bell (15th). Malcolm Liptrop won both the Terminus Hotel Trophy plus the full 6 points in our Golfer of the Winter competition, followed by Dean Trickett (5), Bill Lokan (4), David Rodgers (3), John Curnow (2) and the rest, one each. This Saturday we’ll stomp up for a Stableford stoush, played from the white tees, just to soften us up for the Club Championship final on Sunday, 27 holes off the tiger tees yet again. Importantly, our contenders have been allotted tee times, which we urge you to note and obey. From the No 1 tee we need to see, at 0845, Merv Hameister, Bill Lokan and Doug Taylor, to be followed there at 0853 by Bill Parkin, Mark Loy and Peter Thompson. Then at that same first tee block we expect, at 0900, John Michael, John Curnow and Scott Michael, followed at 0907 by Wayne Nagle, David Rodgers and Murray Smith. From the 10th tee block, at precisely 0845, we must observe Messrs. Greg Anderson and Trevor Gilmour prepared to face off, followed by Martyn Bell, Dennis Goudie and Malcolm Liptrop at exactly 0853. The top three players after 19 holes will play as a group over the final nine. All players should bring their own lunch, while for a measly 10 bucks per person, a sumptuous barbecue tea will be served.

Longest Drive: A; M Day, B; G Stone, C; F Gorey. Semi finals of Club Championships. A Grade: J Tucker def M Day 2 up, D Hannaford def M Norma 4/3.

TWO WELLS

Results from Saturday August 11, Stableford/ Hamley Challenge, sponsored by Caddie Shack, 43 players. Two Wells welcomed the boys from where the two rivers meet – in other words, the boys from Hamley Bridge – for the return leg of the Hamley Challenge. The best thing the Hamley boys did was win two of our meat trays. Two Wells gave them a towelling with a stableford average of 36 to Hamley’s 32 to win the day. John Ball stood head and shoulders above with a great 45 points, to win A Grade from Yogi’s 43 and Andrew Baker 40, as well as 39 points from Paul Shields and Russell Grigg. That fine old scotsman, Ian Smith, won B Grade with 43 from Hans Linford 41. C Grade was won by Jeff Spackman on 41 from Danny Smith 40. Hamley sadly missed the inspiration of Anton Noack, recovering from his hip operation. It was a great day, played in good spirits.

Early lead seals Hummocks win nated shooting for Long Plains, capably supported by GA Alicia Sharman who won best for her team. Mallala now has the bye, but focuses on Balaklava the following week, where both teams must win to secure fourth spot in the finals.

Courtside with Merridy Manuel The Hamley versus Hummocks match promised to be a taste of finals to come. However, Hummocks dominated from start to finish with the home side left wondering, 54 to 35. Hummocks took an early lead, ahead by seven at the first break. Hummocks started well in the second, but were matched by Hamley, both teams scoring 12 goals each. Some constructive talk at half time in the Hummocks camp saw them accelerate through the third term, their best for the game, scoring 17 to Hamley’s nine. The final quarter saw Hummocks pull ahead by a further four goals to win by 19. Amber Rogers, Hamley GS, who has excelled in past weeks, was shut down by the double teaming Hummocks defence, Rochelle Smith GD and Claire Schulz GK. They were supported by pressure out in front by Beth Reid C and Sarah Young WD. No changes were made for either team throughout the match. Alison Schahinger hurt her back at the last pass but has since recovered. Hummocks coach, Sam Nicholls commented, “The pleasing thing for me as a coach is that most of the girls are now really hitting their straps. “We have settled into our starting seven line up and our combinations are really starting to gel.” Ominous words for

It must have been spectacular play in the Hamley attacking end with both Rochelle Smith GD and her opponent, GA Chelsea Modra winning best for the match. Coach Sam Nicholls dominated the shooting for Hummocks. Hamley coach, Lee Barnett, felt old habits snuck back into their game on Saturday. “Our trainings are perfect, but we seem to forget what we practise on the weekend. “We are also a young team and although fit we need to be determined to win and want the ball.” Coach Barnett is all too aware that they will face

Mallala marches ahead

This game followed a similar pattern to the Hamley-Hummocks clash, with Mallala racing away to a nine goal lead in the first quarter, followed by an even second quarter. Mallala coach, Katie Kreig acknowledged Long Plains’ pressure which drew errors from her team. “Unfortunately, our own silly errors let us down but credit to the girls (Mallala) for hanging in there. “Tess Jarmyn was strong all game under pressure,” continued Katie. “Moving and shooting well, earning her a well deserved best player.” Mallala made changes at half time with Brooke Griffiths coming on at WA, Carla Jarmyn moving from WA to GD and Kerryn Obst going into GK. Long Plains only made changes at the last break with GS and GA swapping positions, Jane McBride and Alicia Sharman, and WA Tori Doherty swapping

with WD Shelley Tynan. Mallala pulled ahead by one more in the third, and five more in the last to win by 15, 57 to 42. But it was the first quarter that set them up for the win. Jane McBride domi-

Tegan Pollard’s efforts were acknowledged by the umpires as were Wendy Salter’s, Virginia GA. Balaklava coach, Tess Pollard was pleased with her girls overall. “The pressure they put on right down the court was good and the attack line up was fast moving and very direct,” explained Tess.

Perhaps Balaklava might have hoped to win by more against the floundering Virginian side. The winning 19 goal margin is the same margin Hummocks won over Hamley. Balaklava shot the first few goals, but Virginia surged back to trail by two goals at the first break. Virginia WA Sarah Smith led the charge with GA Wendy Salter shooting 100 per cent. The second quarter saw the Balaklava girls settle with strong defensive work from GK Alexandra Wilson and direct leading down the court from C Tegan Pollard.

IT was ‘kids v parents’at the Balaklava netball courts on Saturday, as Balaklava C1 side took on their parents! The netball match was organised by Julie White, coach of Balaklava’s C1 team, in place of a Balaklava v Virginia C1 game (as Virginia doesn’t have a team in this grade.) A few of the kids thought the match was going to be a walk in the park…not realising how competitive all the parents are! In the end, C1s took the glory, the final score being C1 22 – Parents 21. All played well, with Marie Heaslip, Jillian Parker and Sandra Burman shooting some fantastic goals.

Roosters, Rams derby sure to be a thriller Virginia v Two Wells

THIS could well be the two grand finalists up against each other this weekend, given both teams’ form in the past month or so. The Roosters come fresh off of the break after having two tough weeks with injury. They would be hopeful of regaining ruckman, Simon Feast, and key forward, Lee Allmond, both with hamstring problems. Whether they are willing to risk them to get the two points will be of interest though, after the Rams accounted for the Peckers on Saturday. If Virginia wins, it goes straight past Two Wells on the table and with Mallala facing Balaklava in the last round, it could be a vital two points to have on the close rivals at Two Wells. There’s no room for losses in the top four now, each side capable of finishing in the valuable top two position. Michael Hay returned for the Rams on the weekend and his size, strength and versatility could prove handy. The aggressive utility has reportedly been keen to shadow Jarred Allmond this weekend, the classy foot skills of Allmond capable of setting up a win for the Roosters. Two Wells’ speed could be the determining factor, with Rams runners such as Joss Denengelse andAnthony Johnston both down on pace this year.

THE curtain falls on a tough season for the Eagles this weekend, with the bye coming the following week. The game at Lochiel does present an opportunity to salvage something but player availability will be keen. Joel Wilson, along with a number of key Eagles, has endured a tough year with injury. It appears unlikely HWE will regain too many to its line-up from recent weeks again but the Eagles love playing Lochiel and a game against rivals, Balaklava, presents as perfect motivation. Peckers coach, Stuart Lamond, already suggested the team won’t be resting players and will be out to win in what has suddenly become a vital two points for Balaklava to stay in the top two.

Plains Producer, Wednesday August 15, 2012

Two consecutive losses should sting the Peckers back into gear because if they drop this one, it would be the biggest form slump of season 2012. Glenn Dawson currently heads the goal kicking table and this week could present as an opportunity kick a big bag and put the award beyond doubt. That said, the game is bigger than the individual awards and a fit Glenn Dawson is paramount to Balaklava’s chances come finals time. It will be interesting to see how Balaklava also uses ruckman, Hayden Walker, after the big fella was roving contests last week and doing well to boot. The Peckers need to find their mojo, a solid win over HWE would be a good start. The Eagles won’t be keen to hand it to them on a silver platter though.

Hamley Bridge v United

THE Bombers got through last week’s big win relatively unscathed in a minor miracle for

the team. Nil injuries plus a series of returning players including Angus Martin, James Sullivan, Nathan Harvey and Lachy Norman puts Hamley in good stead when hosting the Tigers this weekend. Even bigger is the prospect of regaining Justin Schahinger from North Adelaide. A full senior squad to select from would be a sight for sore eyes at the Bombers and with the chance to get two wins in a row on the board, it comes at an ideal time. For United, the result of this game has some significance. Currently sitting in fifth position, the Tigers could slip to sixth if Hamley Bridge beat them. It’s been the same names for United doing most of the battling and the Bombers could target these players to make their job a lot easier. Heath Pym, Brad Shimmin and Mikey Brown are the predominant ball winners, whileAdam Mansfield, Mark Pym and Simon Schulz tend to hold up the back line. Up forward, James Rundle, Aaron Littlewood and Jamie McArdle offer United’s main route to goal. Hamley’s form on Saturday was ominous but losing matches it should win has been a common theme for the club this year. United have every opportunity to win this one but with a full squad to pick from, the Bombers might just have the edge on paper. www.plainsproducer.com.au

Name: PROUD parents Emily and Jason with baby daughter Alyssa and son, Jay.

Baby Alyssa couldn’t wait to join her mum and dad A BACK seat conception was regrettably common in the 60s but a front seat birth is virtually unheard of, whatever decade you were in. Balaklava couple, Emily Harris and Jason Roberts, broke that duck early Sunday morning, last week. Emily started getting contractions about 6.15am so the family, including two-year-old son, Jay, piled into the car and off they went to Wallaroo hospital, as most of her family live on Yorke Peninsula. She said contractions became more frequent, by the time they reached Paskeville. Things got real when her water broke about five kilometres from Kadina. “We pulled over and called an ambulance,” she said. Jason remained on the phone to the ambulance and reassured Emily throughout the ordeal. “He was so good but I could tell he was scared by the look in his eyes,” Emily laughed. Jason confirmed this observation. “I was very scared,” he said. “I was trying to stay calm and do what I could to help her. It was hectic, I can’t explain how it was.”

Les Pearson reports: It was only a matter of minutes before Alyssa Cathryn arrived, weighing 7lbs, 4oz. “The second the ambulance got there was the second she came out,” Emily said. Despite the terrifying situation, she was proud of Jason’s support. “He was so strong,” she said. “The ambulance personnel were also great and they were very excited because it was the first birth they had attended.” Calmly sitting the back seat, young Jay sat through it all and barely blinked an eye. “I don’t think he knew what was going on,” Emily said. “He just sat there talking away to everyone.” Emily was in labour with Jay for 20 hours, in stark contrast to the matter of minutes for Alyssa, but preferred to give birth in the hospital bed. “Oh God, it was way too scary,” she said. “I was lucky it all happened so fast.”

Ruffled feathers

Rams rattle Peckers’ confidence VIRGINIA again has emerged as a genuine contender to play in this year’s decider, defeating Balaklava by 20 points at Ralli Park on Saturday. It was the second win for the Rams over the Peckers this year and adds further doubts to Balaklava’s premiership defence. Virginia opened the free-flowing match with the first goal going to Brendon Niklaus with a handsome finish from 40 metres out on a 45 degree angle. It was Niklaus’ only goal for the game. Glenn Dawson stamped his mark on the game early with a raking goal from 55 metres out but he too, struggled to hit the scoreboard after that, also finishing with one solitary major. The teams traded goals throughout the game, despite periods where Balaklava looked set to break the game open. The Rams held a four-point lead

at the final change but they finished the better, the Peckers wasteful while Virginia made the most of its chances. With only a few minutes on the clock, youngster, Marco Lazenka, put the Rams at least three goals clear with a cool set shot from a tight angle and Troy Wilkey’s huge running bomb from 50 sealed the deal. Virginia coach, Greg Phillips, said it was a vital win. “I’ve always thought winning form is good form, especially coming in to finals,” he said. “I just thought we tried to play quick tempo footy.” n Continued page 20
