IT’S ALWAYS VALENTINE’S DAY FOR REX AND RAELENE

No local drug tests, but Senator calls for probe • From Page 1 “We’re not medical practitioners, we don’t conduct regular urine samples on players. “You just don’t know.” Mr Busch believed the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) had the power to randomly test any competitor in a sporting event suspected of taking PEDs. He said ASADA also tended to target and monitor gymnasiums where large amounts of the illegal substances tended to be trafficked. Clare-based Liberal Senator, Sean Edwards, has joined Senate committee looking into the matter, revealing he has

concerns for local community clubs as well. “Crime syndicates don’t care where they make their money,” Senator Edwards said. “When young people see and hear that their heroes from the AFL and other national codes are taking performance enhancing substances, they will often look to follow suit. “I want to make sure

this inquiry is not just about the elite players and clubs but I want community and rural teams covered as well.” Mr Busch said it would be intriguing to see how other local football leagues were impacted by competitors using PEDs. “It would be interesting to see if the SAAFL (amateur league) is more subject to it than we are,” he said.

“You wouldn’t think players would look at it in this league but you just don’t know. “Over the years, there’s a chance someone would have tried it.” The Australian Crime Commission’s (ACC) 12-month investigation into organised crime and drugs revealed the use of illicit drugs within some sporting codes is considered to be significantly higher than is recorded in official statistics. The ACC finding also claimed organised crime had been found to have a tangible and expanding footprint in this market, and their activity is being facilitated by some coaches and support staff of elite athletes. Senator Edwards encouraged anyone with any information to make a submission to the committee. For more details contact his office on 8205 1070 or 1300 738 260. As this edition went to press, the SANFL had not responded to our enquiries on anti-doping tests in country football leagues. • NOTE: Les Pearson plays football for Balaklava in the APFL.

n what has been described as a “win-win” for the environment, landowner productivity and wind farm developer TrustPower, about 102ha of degraded native grassland on the South Hummocks is benefiting from an innovative new management plan. Under the Native Vegetation Act 1991, TrustPower is required to provide an environmental benefit offset for the clearance of native vegetation associated with the construction of the second stage of its Snowtown wind farm.This is often achieved by paying money into a fund used by the Native Vegetation Council (NVC) for environmental remediation. Instead, an alternate approach has been agreed to.TrustPower, assisted by the Mid North Grasslands Working Group, has identified a suitable native grasslands offset area on a property north-east of the Kulpara township, owned by the Millard family. As a result, a Native Vegetation Management Plan has been negotiated with the NVC that establishes a rotational grazing program as a management tool together with weed management and feral animal control; establishes a number of “cells” or paddocks with watering facilities for stock; and includes annual surveys and reporting of improvements. Mid North Grasslands Working Group member Millie Nichols said: “I think it’s a really innovative solution. This will result in an important grassland area being sustainably managed for the long term.” Bruce Munday, chair of the Native Vegetation Assessment Panel, says there are benefits all round: “Using

NEWS v District

Griffiths holds ‘shadow’ portfolios MEMBER for Goyder, Steven Griffiths, remains on the Liberal party’s Shadow Cabinet, albeit in the ‘outer ministry’, after recentlyelected leader, Steven Marshall, announced a new line-up last Friday.

Les Pearson reports: “The structure Steven Marshall has put in place is very different,” Mr Griffiths explained. “It has a core group of eight (including Mr

Marshall), the four other shadows, of which I am one, who work with one of the group but we do not attend shadow cabinet meetings.” Mr Griffiths retained the Local Government and Regional Develop-

ment portfolios, in a sense, but also added some new areas, including Science and information Economy and Business Services and Consumers, to his list. “We have responsibility for portfolio areas,”

he said. “It means I keep Local Government and Regional Development, but expand in to Science and Information Economy and also the Business Services and Consumers, which is licensing issues such as alcohol, business registrations etc. “I am quite excited about taking these on as they are areas I have not worked in before and indeed are important to how the state runs. “I will have operational responsibility for the portfolios provided to me, while at the same time working closely with Martin Hamilton-Smith, so he knows what is hap-

pening in those areas and can represent the portfolios in Shadow Cabinet discussions.” The revised structure of the Shadow Cabinet is relatively fresh in state political circles and Mr Griffiths claimed to have embraced it. “Any change of leadership represents change of structure,” he said. “I respect Mr Marshall has drawn on his business experience and used a more corporate structure, and indeed this ‘inner and outer’ ministry structure is used federally, and has been for some time.” Having been previously scrapped as a Shadow

Steven Griffiths Minister in December 2011 before being reinstated in November last year, Mr Griffiths is aware how fragile holding these positions can be. “Personally, yes, I am pleased and relieved to still be a shadow minister,” he said. “I believe my work history in local government management and the many roles I have had with the Liberal party since being elected in 2006 shows I have the capacity to take on responsible roles.”

CARUMBA ADELAIDE PLAINS CUP SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 24

Roll up for barrels of fun

LOCAL beauties Kate Taylor (left) and Kate Langdon have decreed it’s again that time of year to get your gloves on and get rolling! The pair dressed in their race day finery to promote Balaklava Racing Club’s Adelaide Plains Cup on Sunday, February 24, featuring the iconic Coopers Brewery keg roll. The keg roll is a relay where teams of six roll an empty beer keg down the racetrack. Each team must have at least two females. It can be all women but it must contain at least two. “Women actually have an advantage as they’re generally a bit shorter,” said Balaklava Racing Club CEO, Doug Hall.

The keg roll always attracts a raft of competitors, vying for the great prizes up for grabs. “Coopers gives a tour of the brewery for the winning team and their partners and a few slabs of beer,” he said. While light-hearted, the competition heats up when the kegs start to roll, with some sporting clubs taking home the beer on several occasions. “Hummocks-Watchman Eagles footy club won it a few years in a row and the Terminus Hotel group also has about four in a row,” Doug said. Adelaide Plains Cup is a “belter” to kick off the local racing year. “It’s mainly local people, a lot more relaxed and

the weather is usually pretty warm,” Doug said. The club also has an outstanding membership offer running. “If anyone signs up now, they get membership for the rest of this racing year, which finishes on July 31, and the rest of next year, which includes the Balaklava Cup,” Doug said. For just $50, members get half price drinks in the members’ bar at all Balaklava meets, except the Balaklava Cup. Members get free entry on cup day, which is usually $25 a ticket. “You get half your membership back just from cup day entry,” Doug said.“It’s the best place to be on cup day. Cheapest and best seat in the house!”

Beware of broken heart

Tomorrow is Valentine’s day, the day of romance and love. Oh yesss! And it’s the day people spend millions on flowers, chocolates, romantic dinners and even engagement rings. However, consumers are warned not to fall head-over-heels for a scammer! In particular, people need to be alert to overseas romance scams and predators posing as genuine partners. According to theAustralian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), in 2011, lonely hearts were scammed out of $21 million. That is horrendous. People might be lonely, but I ask, are they really that gullible and desperate? If you wouldn’t hand over money to someone on the street who you didn’t know, think rationally and ask yourself “why am I sending money on-line to a complete stranger?” If people are going to get involved

with on-line dating or dating/introduction agencies, they are advised to get their agreements put in writing, and to be wary of additional costs and ongoing requests for money. Under Australian law, consumers can claim compensation if their introduction agency fails to meet a guarantee. If you are about to jump on the on-line dating band wagon, make sure you protect yourself and always

Louise Michael

consider the possibility the person contacting you might be a scammer. If you have, or suspect you have, been scammed, contact ACCC by calling 1300 795 995 or via “report a scam” webpage on SCAMwatch. But for those of us loved up already, I hope you are nice to each other on Valentine’s day, and more importantly, be nice to each other every day!

ANOTHER big budget film, which was meant to begin filming in the state last year, is at last nearing the production stage. An article from The Plains Producer on December 21, 2011, revealed Port Wakefield identity, the late Arthur “Possum” Kipling”, was likely to feature as a character in the movie, entitled “Dust and Glory”. Billed as an action romance adventure, the movie is a feature-length production based on a book of the same title, penned by late racing great, Evan Green, which tells the tale of the REDeX Round Australia Trials in the 1950s. The trials put everyday vehicles to the ultimate test, the boldest of drivers negotiating the country’s toughest terrain in a race around the nation. The race drew a huge throng of fans, hundreds of thousands lining the outback roads and capital city streets to greet the men many considered heroes of the era. Acclaimed screenwriter, Robert Lewis Galinsky, said the production team had reached an exciting stage following rescheduling issues. “Our scheduling is because director, Simon West, won’t finish his current picture until mid year,” he said. “We’re out to cast in a month and should start pre-production this winter and shoot October.” Dust and Glory also struck funding difficulties, similar to that which delayed the production stages of Wolf Creek 2. “We both had the same investor fall out, but we have also solved that problem,” Galinsky said. Rumours have surfaced regarding big-name stars targeted by West to join the cast. Gerard Butler, Liam Hemsworth, Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, Eric Bana, Rachael Taylor, Mel Gibson and Isla Fisher are all names to surface as possible stars but Galinski was giving nothing away. “No hints yet, but A-list,” he said.

Alan and Fay help out behind the scenes

INSIDE the old home. Local farmer Fay Angel helped set designers create the decor.

S the summer sun warps the dusty saltbush flats on the horizon, a lone figure, his skin covered in cuts and clothes torn and tattered, stumbles through the heat in desperate search of food, water and shelter. Suddenly, a house emerges from the haze ahead, and hopes of salvation flicker inside. This is the scene featured in a thriller being shot at a former station homestead, not far past the Copper Coast Highway turnoff, just north of Port Wakefield. The movie, Wolf Creek 2, is a sequel for the hugely successful horror flick, Wolf Creek (2005), in which stranded backpackers in remote Australia fall prey to a murderous bushman. The original Wolf Creek holds the record for the highest grossing R-rated Australian movie ever made. Producer, Steve Topic, said Wolf Creek 2 was shaping as a stunning sequel, utilising a boost in funding, giving director Greg McLean and his crew a whole raft of new options and directions to explore. “The villain, Mick Taylor, is the same but the movie is a bit more expansive on him,” Topic said. “It’s based on backpackers going missing, the same guy is hunting them but it’s more of a thriller this time. “It’s not as contained as the first, it’s a bit broader with some great chase scenes as well. “The budget is much bigger, I

can’t say exactly how much but the first was really small, it was basically a million dollar film. “Wolf Creek 2 is always going to be different because of that.” The sequel once again stars former Better Homes and Gardens host, John Jarratt, (Django Unchained, Wolf Creek, Australia) as the murderous Mick Taylor, while Packed to the Rafters heart throb, Ryan Corr, has a major role.

The Port Wakefield site is a ripper find for the film, according to Topic. He said producers utilised site locators to identify ideal scenes for shooting. “They know where the spots are, you tell them what you want, they’ll go off and find them and we dress it all up ourselves,” Topic said. The house has been magnificently revamped inside, portraying a uniquely decorated interior, featuring time-forgotten décor

often found within such homes. Old wedding photos, faded portraits of Jesus and a woodframed rear projection TV were just some of the many items creating a uniquely remote atmosphere. “You get a production designer and they know where to get all this stuff, if they don’t already have it,” Topic explained. “It gives it a really authentic look.”

The particular scene the house features in is rather prominent in the film. “We’re shooting a scene where basically we’ve got one of our main characters in the film, stranded in the outback, this is supposed to be in the middle of nowhere, I’m talking maybe 12 hours out of Perth,” Topic said. “He’s just kind of wandering across the outback, he stumbles across this farmhouse where this old couple is living and he gets to rest there the night, they feed

him and then some ‘interesting’ stuff happens.” On the back of Wolf Creek 2, the recent success of Snowtown (the movie) and the shooting of The Rover in the state’s north involving Hollywood superstar, Robert Pattinson, SA’s image as a film-friendly state should improve, according to Topic. Topic believed the accessibility to such arid locations within two hours’ drive of an international airport set the state up as one of the world’s potential prime shooting locations. “The way it helps is it puts South Australia on the map as a shooting location,” he said. “Then what you find is you attract more people to the local film industry here, so it’s easier for us to crew.” As a result, the South Australian Film Corporation garners more resources and the benefits flow on from there. Much of the previous shooting took place in Hawker and Leigh Creek, but Port Wakefield is a new shooting site for the Wolf Creek movies. Crews are into their fourth of seven weeks of shooting. There are between 50 and 60 people onsite at any given time, with Topic thrilled with progress to date. “The producers and director review everything we do at the end of the day in sessions we call ‘dailies’ and then we can see if what we’ve shot is good coverage, or if we need to go back and get some more footage,” he said. “This stuff we’ve shot in the outback settings is just stunning. It is looking incredible.”

Wolf Creek 2 director, Greg McLean, on location outside the old homestead north of Port Wakefield.

A HANDFUL of locals left their own mark in Wolf Creek 2, involved in various aspects of filming scenes shot at a homestead just north of Port Wakefield. Balaklava’s Alan Kirkland was shearing lambs near the Brooklyn Downs homestead in November last year, when he was approached by connections of the film to have a look at the house. Alan leases the land from landowner, Gino Berno. When the home got the tick of approval, Alan and his sister, Whitwarta farmer, Fay Angel, spent about three days cleaning it up in preparation for the film crews to arrive. “The former tenants, who rented it last, left a whole heap of stuff in there and it was full of rats,” Alan said. “It’s a beautiful old house, so it was sad to see it in the state it was in.” Fay took on a decorative role soon after, helping crews fit out the home with various fixtures and fittings, including antique furnishings with some hefty price tags. Her workman, Matt Oliver, also provided several wild pig skulls for one of the sets. “We ended up working with the director and the art department,” Fay said. “They were very open to suggestions as we had lived with a lot of that stuff around us.” She found the crew to be rather pleasant, despite the long, exhaustive hours they were working. “They’re under so much pressure but they all stayed lovely,” Fay said.“We all want to do it again, it was a great experience, we had a ball.” “It was a bit of an adventure for us. It was all new,” Alan added. Filming finished at the site last week, all props and filming equipment shifted out on Thursday. A horse, owned by Balaklava’s Shane and Mary Faehrmann, also featured in the movie. Despite being black, the horse was made darker with chalk for the film. Fay’s old work ute also appears. “We’ll be watching it when it comes out, looking for all of our stuff,” she laughed. “I don’t know the exact storyline but that will be our part of it.”

IBERAL voters – and others – have been craving to hear what their party’s candidate for Wakefield has to say following Prime Minister, Julia Gillard’s, announcement of the Federal Election date, September 14. Liberal candidate for Wakefield, Tom Zorich, has been busily travelling the district, promoting his candidacy from corner to corner of the 6407 square kilometre electorate. He outlined to reporter LES Pearson his thoughts on the coming election year and how well prepared he believed his team was to challenge Labor MP, Nick Champion’s reign in the seat of Wakefield.

PPOSITION leader, Tony Abbott, revealed the party’s direction, values and policy priorities of the next Coalition government through the document “Our Plan: Real Solutions for all Australians” on Australia Day. Mr Zorich said his campaign, was strongly based around Our Plan, and its relevance to local issues impacting on the families in Wakefield. “I think the plan is what we need to follow and I’m not going to think anything different to what the national campaign promotes, other than there will be local issues that will also be addressed during the campaign,” he said. “There are obviously the national issues, which are pretty much resonating back to the local community and then there are some local issues as well.” Given the election and campaign proper is still a way off, Mr Zorich opted not to reveal what those local issues will be. “I’m not going to release those local issues just yet,” he said. “We’ve still got a long way to go and I’m out there talking with people. “The general issue that families and businesses are telling me is the rising cost of living under this Gillard Labor government is what’s hurting them all.” While wary of releasing too much detail, Mr Zorich did reveal some indicators about what his local campaign issues will revolve around. “In a broad sense, the issues are the

EARLIER this year, Federal Member for Wakefield, Nick Champion, called on Mr Zorich and the Liberal Party to clarify its position on the Federal government’s coinvestment policy with the automotive industry. Mr Zorich said the Coalition was still seeking transparency from both the government and the industry on how that funding assistance would be utilised. “When you give someone some money, you want to know what they’re going to do with it. That’s what the Coalition was after,” he said. “The Coalition supports business but the Coalition does not support the Gillard government’s waste or their hurtful carbon tax. “That is what is hitting business hard.”

September 14

The election date THE unusual decision from Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, to announce the election date nine months in advance did not faze Mr Zorich. He felt it would have little bearing on his work in coming months. “I know when the AFL grand final is but it doesn’t help any club. You’ve still got to work really hard to get there,” he said. “It doesn’t matter whether you know when it is or not, it’s the work that has to be done to achieve the right result.”

Plains Producer, Wednesday February 13, 2013

That work has well and truly begun, Mr Zorich thankful for an early pre-selection, which he believed gave him a head start compared to other candidates. “Luckily enough, I was preselected last year, so a lot of work has been done already,” he said. “By being preselected early, it has given me the opportunity to work out how systems work within the political arena and put a lot of structures and planning in place. “What it also means is we have the opportunity to put our position forward to a lot of people.” That said, he is more than aware of the political storm that is brewing. “There’s still lots of work to do within the electorate, whether it’s doorknocking, street visits, shopping centre visits, those sorts of things,” Mr Zorich said. “It’s about setting up the positioning in a local sense over the next few months. “I believe we’re in a position to take on the election.”

Carbon Tax

Labor controversy DESPITE issues such as the Carbon Tax, the abandoned surplus Budget, and Kevin Rudd’s leadership challenge 12 months ago, Mr Zorich refused to concede the Labor Party had paved the way for an election victory. “Nothing’s easy,” he said. “I’ve been around a long time and I don’t think you can take life for granted. As soon as you take life for granted, it will come back and bite you.” Mr Zorich instead declared he was concentrating on his own actions. “We know the government is offering more taxes, record debt, more deficits and more instability but I’m focussed on what I can do – and that’s work hard for the people of Wakefield.”

Funding to help rivers Applications soon will open for the second round of the Federal government’s Biodiversity Fund and the first round of the Sustainable Environment stream of the Caring for our Country program. Both funding rounds will focus on projects across target areas that include urban waterways and coastal environments. Federal Member for Wakefield, Nick Champion, said this was an opportunity for the Wakefield River. “The Wakefield river is an important part of our community,” Nick Champion said. “But after years of treating our waterways as though they were a drain, we need to start prioritising them. “The government is focusing investment on target areas, including urban waterways. This is the opportunity our community needs to improve this local resource. “I will be speaking to community members to ensure we make the most of this opportunity.”

Time travel at caravan show The 2013 SA Caravan and Camping Show from next Wednesday, February 20-24, will provide a spectacular mixture of old and new in the State’s biggest showcase of products and services for the touring lifestyle. • YOU can enjoy the show through a limited supply of double passes available at the Plains Producer. Simply call in to our office, 9 Howe Street, Balaklava during business hours. More than 40,000 consumers are expected to attend the five-day event with around 250 exhibitors filling the five huge pavilions and outdoor display areas of the Adelaide Showground at Wayville. Presented by the Caravan and Camping

Industries Association of SA (CCIASA), the show will feature a vast diversity of models and accessories along with a dedicated pavilion promoting top self-drive holiday destinations in South Australia and beyond. The inaugural National Vintage and Classic Caravan Grand Parade will provide a fascinating dimension to this year’s show with around 50 restored models dating back to the middle of last century on display on Friday, February 22. The grand parade has been organised by the CCIASA in response to the amazing groundswell of interest in the restoration of old caravans, and particularly SA’s leading role in the pioneering days of the industry.

CCIASA chief executive officer, Stuart Livingstone, said: “It will bring together enthusiasts who have restored vintage (pre1970) and classic (1970 to 1980) caravans, many fitted out with furniture and utensils of the same era. “This parade of caravans from the early days of the industry will be the first of its type associated with a mainstream caravan and camping show in Australia, and it is sure to generate huge public interest.” In contrast, the 2013 SA Caravan and Camping Show will also feature latest model releases along with emerging design and construction methods and technologies to maximise comfort and energy efficiency.

Pictured (from left) are Fay Dunstan, Carol King from Mallala Community Arts presenting the cheque to Mallala Community Hospital CEO, Belinda Sharp, and site manager, Merrilyn Good.

The Animal Welfare League is overflowing with cats and kittens ready for adoption. The AWL’s Peter Sellen said kitten season had arrived in a big way at the Wingfield Shelter. “We are desperately trying to find families who will take some of our “adoption ready” cats and kittens to a new home,” Mr Sellen said. “There are currently almost 30 adult cats and more than 40 adorable kittens ready for a new life with a loving caring family.” Every cat ready for adoption is micro chipped, desexed, vaccinated and health checked. If you can give a cat a home, visit the AWL Shelter at 1-19 Cormack road Wingfield. “The AWL does not receive any Commonwealth or State government funding – but we constantly face greater demands for our services,” Mr Sellen said. “At any one time we can have more than 250 animals in our care and each year we care for 20,000 lost and abandoned animals.” The shelter is open seven days a week between 10 am and 3pm.

Take care with wet ears

The warm weather means many Australian pet owners are enjoying our cool waterways, often with their dogs in tow. VetShopAustralia’s head vet, Dr Mark Perissinotto warned pet owners should practice water safety etiquette; to ensure both pets and people can enjoy getting wet, safely. “When dogs get wet, moisture gets into their ear canal,” Dr Perisonotto said. Such conditions are ideal for fungi or bacteria to grow. “This can lead to a painful ear infection.” Pet owners can prevent ear infections from developing by ensuring their dog’s ears are dried thoroughly after being in the water.

report from Government Services issued recently said that in SA, 72.2 percent of males aged 35-44 were overweight or obese in 2011-12. The girls are doing better at 58.4 per cent. If you’re between 65 and 69 and male, the rate rises to 85.8 per cent. I don’t want to preach, as I’m one of the seven in 10 fatties in my age bracket. I am fully aware being overweight, or obese greatly increases my risk of sickness and disease, and avoiding this is now at the top of my wish list. Penny Mathew from Mallala has a business called Happy Hearts, which would be more aptly called Penny’s House of Pain. I joined her kick-boxing class on Monday night and my partner was Mallala farmer Scott Baker, aka Sly Stalone. Scott is about a foot shorter than me, and he kicked my butt (picture me as Apollo Creed). For an hour we shared turns at punching, running, pushups, kicking, sit ups etc. Penny is a great motivator and has donated her time to my cause. Why not join us or one of her other classes by giving Penny a call on 0407 818 782. What, other than fat, have you got to lose? I mentioned last week personal motivator, Mark Brownley, set me a three-day eating challenge following his diet. Here is the secret to his success. Breakfast: Three weetbix with two spoonfuls of Formé vanilla yoghurt, some apricot halves, and skim milk. “Snacking is vital,” explains Mark. “Mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks help quench the desire for a big lunch or dinner (along with drinking lots of water).

About 11,500 Scouts attended this year’s Jamboree, with the theme being “Dream it, Live it.” The jamboree is all about getting to know others and have fun. The children participated in different challenges and activities every day, including rock climbing, abseiling, mud fun, fossicking for gems, flying fox, orienteering, constructing a wheelbarrow and using remote control cars. They also visited Australia Zoo, Dickie Beach and Hervey Bay,

and were treated to nightly concerts, with performers including Reece Mastin, Timomatic, Jessica Mauboy and Justice Crew. “The highlight for us was the nightly concerts, seeing such big names like Timomatic and Jessica Mauboy perform,” said the Two Wells boys. “This was my second jamboree, but it was so much better than the last one, even though we had to get up at 5.30am every day,” said Tim. “It was pretty hot there, but it was awesome,” said Sarah. In 2016, it will be in Sydney, and then Adelaide in 2019.

I negotiated tuna or lean chicken. For dinner I had a choice of three meals. Night one, a protein shake, which makes an ideal fast meal. In a blender put one banana, half a cup of frozen blueberries or strawberries etc, 2tbs protein power, half a cup of milk and water, dollop of honey, and a few spoonfuls of formé yoghurt. Mark “guarantees” you won’t be hungry afterwards – I wasn���t.

Another option was Bill Granger’s chilli chicken with basil served with rice. It’s delish. Recipe: 6 garlic cloves,
2 large red chilli,
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt,

Plains Producer, Wednesday February 13, 2013

3 tablespoons of vegetable oil,
 600g skinless chicken breasts, sliced on the diagonal,
400g of either snake or green beans cut into 3cm lengths on the diagonal,
3 tablespoons of fish sauce,
2 tablespoons dark soy sauce,
1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar,
3 large chillis extra, cut lengthways with seeds removed, 30g (1 cup) Asian basil leaves, or regular basil,
steamed rice to serve. Third meal was bbq salmon and mint pea fetta salad. See our website for link to other recipes. •PS. The only thing you can drink for three days is water, or black tea. Enjoy. After three weeks my gut is 5.8kg smaller, now weighing 104.1kg. The weight loss has slowed, but still heading in the right direction.

and install simple fittings and other simple jobs. However, unless they are really skilled they contract the specialist trades of bricklaying, carpentry, electrics, plumbing and tiling. The following are some general tips that may help to make the process a little easier for you. Preparation Move out of home unless it is a very small job. The renovation will be dirty, dusty noisy. The power and water will go off and when it doesn’t you’ll have tradesmen scrutinising your breakfast and observing your bathroom habits. Keep neighbours on your side. This is an impossible task but do what you can by informing them of noise and inconvenience. To pacify them, consider giving them gifts at appropriate times (like earplugs, champagne and a night in a hotel.) If they get really stroppy, just tell them how your renovation will increase their property value. Research – troll the internet for advice and researching materials, appliances and fittings. Print out pictures of appliances so you can see how they look. Study home magazines and start a neat file of fittings, appliances and design examples that you like.

n WHEN renovating, give great consideration to the front exterior, which presents the first statement about you and your home.

HOME TIPS RENOVATION

Get the household together and discuss the building. Draw up a wish list in order of preference. Get advice. Ask architects or builders to look at your site and sketch to give you a ballpark estimate. Keep renovations in character Consider the architectural integrity of your building. If partially renovating, keep the style similar, or in character with the original house (including the carport and garage.) Don’t be excessively trendy or ambitious.

Fads fade, but a simple elegant style in neutral colours (and subtle patterns) is timeless. Don’t be too ambitious unless you are loaded. Use colour carefully and thoughtfully. Collect samples and play with combinations. Only use three colours in a room, two if the room is small. Light colours will not go out of fashion (or fancy) as fast as strong colours. If you want to use a strong colour, use it in small areas, as punctuation, so if necessary it can be easily changed. Period and older style homes are hard to cost control Best get a fixed price from a builder. Think how you can maximise space or the sense of space. No matter how much space you have, you are likely to want more. Prioritise your space requirements for each room. The less corners, lines and intersecting surfaces, the

greater the visual flow and the more pleasing and less expensive it will be. Try to keep as much of the floor visible by raising cupboards off it. Give great consideration to the front exterior. The exterior presents the first statement about you and your home. Put your money in the right places Put your money firstly where the water is (bathroom and kitchen renovations), then living and master bedroom. Higher ceilings will cost a little more. You will recoup that in resale value. Paint them the lightest colour possible so they look even higher. Consider the resale value of the property after building. Don’t over capitalise. Make sure the total value of your house plus new building is not greater than the value of the smartest house in the street. • SOURCE: www.homedesigndirectory.com.au/diy/ renovation-tips

You can do it! Repot that struggling plant

SUMMER IS THE TIME TO GATHER OUTDOORS. HERE’S HOW TO ...

Relax, pull up a chair Cleaning and maintaining outdoor fabric, outdoor furniture cushions and umbrellas is not very labor intensive. You do not need to do it very often either, but a little TLC goes a long way. One thing you can do to keep all your outdoor cushions looking good for a long time, is to simply cover them when not in use. Put them away if you have heavy winters and won’t be using them for months on end. Outdoor Fabrics Outdoor fabrics are mostly weather and mildew resistant, but occasional washing will help keep them looking their best. Machine-wash outdoor fabrics using the gentle cycle. Add bleach for white items. Dry outdoors. For hammocks and chair covers, etc. stretch back over the frame to avoid shrinkage. Store fabric furniture indoors during winter. Acrylic Cushions Remove from frame before cleaning. Spot clean with mild soap and water using a sponge. Rinse with clean water. Drying completely before using or storing acrylic cushions helps to prevent mildew.

14 www.plainsproducer.com.au

Some types of cushions are mildewresistant, but should any mildew occur, clean with a solution of one cup bleach, two cups detergent and 4.5 litres (half a bucket) of water. Mix thoroughly and spray on the entire cushion. Let the mixture soak for 30 minutes. Scrub with a sponge or clean rag. Rinse with clean water and allow to dry completely. Never wrap cushions in plastic when getting ready to store them. Plastic does not allow the cushion to breathe and may cause mildew if there is any moisture. General cleaning and maintenance tips Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and try to keep the instructions where you can easily access them for reference. Most outdoor furniture can be cleaned with mild soap and water. An application of car wax can be used to protect frames. Wicker Furniture Most wicker furniture can be cleaned using a hose or pressure washer. Remove the cushions before you spray off dirt and spills. For very dirty wicker, use a sponge, mild soap and cold water

to wash. Let it dry completely before applying a paste wax to the frame to help keep it shiny and water-resistant. It is easier to care for weather resistant wicker, so look around before you buy. Store cushions indoors and use a cover for the frames when it is not being used. Wood Furniture Wood furniture usually requires exterior grade oil or varnish to protect it from the elements. Except for teak and cedar all other wood furniture should be stored indoors during winter. Resin or Plastic Furniture Plastic furniture is the easiest to maintain. Spray off dirt with clean water and allow to air dry. Scuff marks can be removed with a gentle abrasive. Remove mildew with a mixture of one cup bleach, two cups detergent and 4.5 litres of water (half a bucket) Aluminum, wrought Iron and Steel Furniture Metal furniture is easy to maintain, but care should be taken that it does not begin to rust. Clean with water and mild soap.

There’s no need to fear the mysterious underground world of roots that confronts you when the time comes to re-pot. That might be when a plant gets too big for its pot, it dries out too quickly or you’ve just bought a better pot. Re-potting in late winter will let the plant adjust before the growing season begins. Start by preparing your plant with a good drink at least an hour before the operation. Have ready a pot with drainage holes and enough fresh, premium potting mix which – unlike garden soil – will optimise nutrients, minimise soil-borne pests and disease, and balance moisture retention with good drainage. Specialised mixes are available for particular plants like citrus or for large and terracotta containers. When you’re ready, slip the plant out of its old pot without pulling on the stem or damaging the canopy. Scuff the outside of the root ball to encourage roots to grow outwards. Untangle any roots circling the outside of the ball. Avoid damage but cleanly cut any that won’t fit back into the pot.

Place the plant in the centre of its new pot. The top of the root ball should sit 2-3cm from the rim and where the stem won’t be buried. Fill under and around the root ball with the potting mix; gently pressing it in as you go to remove large air pockets but without compacting the mix or damaging roots.

Flood the top of the pot to near the rim without disturbing the soil. Let the water infiltrate, then repeat. Keep the plant wellwatered in the first week or two while it will have more difficulty drinking. If it’s intended for a sunny spot, let it recover in shade for that time. Treat roots right and they’ll reward you with a healthy plant. SOURCE: www.plantthis. com.au

To control scale, remove small infestations from the plants by squashing them or cut off the small branches and burn them Large infestations should be sprayed with applications of Malathion mixed with WHITE OIL until all the insect pests have been destroyed.

Along with whiteflies, aphids, mealybugs and scales are usually the most common sapsucking insects in gardens. Aphids attack just about every type of plant. They also come in many colours. All aphids feed by sucking on plant juices and they may transmit plant diseases at the same time. The leaf distortions so often seen with aphids are mostly caused by transmitted viruses. Aphids are most active in spring and autumn. Aphid infestations, which originate from nearby, can be prevented by removal of host weeds and neglected, stressed plants, and by keeping target plants well watered, fertilised and healthy. To rid plants of aphids, spray the plant with water and/ or make up a weak solution of wash-up liquid and water and spray the affected area. Or somehow find a bucket load of lady bugs, a natural predator of aphids.

THE ‘Barmy Army’ was out in force on the Hill Friday night, looking fantastic and taking the opportunity to relax and mingle with friends and family, while enjoying a fine evening of basketball. The real action though was happening on the courts. Let me just say, I was excited! Only three weeks to go before finals start. The senior men and women really stepped up this week. Gib Palmer, Adam Pratt, Jamie McArdle and Craig Price were some of the greats. Leigh Wright was feeling the “heat” while pulling out all stops with Eagle players blocking him. The Eagles only had four players to begin with. Derek Friedrichs looked to be in foul trouble in the last quarter. All I can say is it must have been a ripper of a game. Over in the Women’s Division, I noticed Storm won over Long Plains, another game that would have been great to watch. I was sure Longies would have grabbed the win here. The Aussie Hoops kids continue to get better and better and with over 65 players, I have no doubt that club talent scouts are out watching. I see Kirsty Williams nearly every week helping the Aussie Hoops, coaching and umpiring, and I believe she is coaching the Under 18 Adelaide Plains girls also. Some weeks she helps out with setup and packup as well! There are nine teams Under 12 Mixed competition – if you ask me, that’s too many teams in one division. It’s getting harder to pick good players, I’m not sure how the umpires are deciding best and fairests. Lorenzo De Roma top scored for the boys in the Under 12 Mixed, along with

ADELAIDE PLAINS BASKETBALL REPORT

By the Bench Warmer

Ethan Browlie and Zeke Scott. Chelsea King, Catelyn Harkness and Rhea Lawless for the girls in the Under 12 division. In the Under 14 Boys, Dawson Page scored 31 points, while William Dixon and Earl De Roma both scored 20 each for their team. Association Junior Championships are coming up – I look forward to seeing these players here. Tayla Williams, Rachel Dunstan, Kiesha Gregory, Kirrily White and Teisha Harkness did well in the Under 14 Girls. And I must say Happy 13th Birthday to Amy Langdon! There are some great players in this division, with Heaslip, Cullen, Scott, Smith and McPharlin all stepping up. Defence is an important part of the game, players in this position don’t always get mentioned, but are just as important. In the Under 16 Girls, Asheigh Williams, Kelsey Wedding, Blessing Nyoni, Aleisha Michael Brooke Wilson, Stacey Faehrmann, Jessica Heaslip and Natasha Greenshields all did well for their teams. The Titans had a win over the Redlegs in the Under 17 Boys but not by much. Bench Warmer’s Tip: Clubs need to make sure players’ uniforms are correct… or perhaps players need make sure their uniforms are correct! See you next week – don’t be late!

SPORT v Bowls NEIL Rogers, Riverton, bowls on Saturday. Neil is currently the leading skipper in Division One, with a total shot margin of +62.

Who is the leading skipper in Division One? Statistics have been compiled recording the progress of skippers over the first 17 rounds in Division One. The following list displays the leading Division One skippers who have played at least 10 Division One matches and have recorded a minimum of five wins, or its equivalent.

Owen takes match points • From back page The final match saw Owen gain valuable match points against Hamley Bridge following their seven shot victory with two rinks up. For Owen, Glen Bubner had a comfortable win over Cris Donohue (HB), 27-14, while Neil Harkness held onto a 2 shot win against John Bubner (HB), 23-21. Hamley Bridge’s rink points came with Paul Fritz’ defeat of Tim Harkness (O), 28-20. Wasleys had the bye for last weekend’s round. So, with four rounds left to play, the stage is set for a thrilling finish to the Division One minor round. While Hamley Bridge and Mallala both appear to be out of the running for a final four spot, there still remains a chance mathematically that one of them could still sneak in if the remaining results for the season go their way. If not, both sides can definitely influence the make-up of the final four with the odd win along the way over the coming weeks. So, what is in store in this weekend’s Division One matches? An exciting round awaits us as each clash carries with it significant implications for each of the competing sides. Meanwhile, Owen will be sitting on the sidelines taking note of all of the ensuing action. Wasleys, coming off its bye, will host Balaklava in the first of the matches for the round. In an interesting observation, the score between these two sides is 1-1 with each side winning 12-0 at the opposing side’s green. Also, the respective winning margin in both matches was coincidentally 32 shots. Will this trend continue here or can Wasleys reverse the trend and inflict another defeat upon Balaklava? Since the mid-season break, Balaklava’s form has been 3-2 compared to Wasleys’ 2-2, with a bye. A win for Balaklava will secure the double chance for the side while a win for Wasleys will bring it closer to Owen, now sitting third. Expect a tight encounter which is likely to go down to the wire. Second placed Port Wakefield travels to Riverton for another important match for both sides. Both sides have had a 3-1 record since the mid-season break with Riverton having won their last three matches. Port Wakefield has had the wood over Riverton so far this season winning previous clashes by 25 and 1 shots, respectively. A win for Port Wakefield will give the side some more breathing space in second spot while a win for Riverton will bring it nearer to the top four as well as close the gap between itself and second spot. Whichever side copes with the extra pressure that this match carries with it will eventually take the match points here.

The final match sees Mallala host Hamley Bridge with the knowledge that whichever side wins this match still has a slim chance of making the finals while for the loser their season will effectively be over. Their earlier results have been somewhat surprising in that each side has won once and, on each occasion, with only one rink up. Hamley Bridge won the first clash by 35 shots while Mallala won the second by 3 shots. Since that last clash, Hamley Bridge has had the slightly better form winning 2-4 (-30) as against Mallala’s 1-5 (-50). On that form,

Hamley Bridge should be favoured to win what could be a very interesting tussle. RESULTS: Owen 70 (10) (G. Bubner 27, T. Harkness 20, N. Harkness 23) def. Hamley Bridge 63 (2) (C. Donohue 14, P.

Large wins and a draw! SATURDAY’S Division Two round was significant with three large wins punctuated by a draw. The draw occurred between Hamley Red and Balaklava Blue with each side winning a rink and having the third rink tied. Les Stott (HR) and Lindsay Day (BB) finished tied 23 a-piece while Colin Phillips (HR) defeated Colin Milton (BB) 25-22 and Graham Olsen (BB) matched that result accounting for Bob Morris (HR) 23-20. Port Wakefield Blue accounted for third placed Mallala Black by a comfortable 25 shots with two rinks up. Michael Olsen (PWB) defeated Malcolm Dunstan (MB) 24-17 and Terry Cluse (PWB) had an easy 4214 win against Mick King (MB). For Mallala Black, Keith McDonald took the rink points against Steve Reimers (PWB) 29-20. Tarlee White lost their fourth position following their 31 shot all rinks loss to Mallala White. For Mallala White, their skippers – Geof Donlon, Terry Halford and John Curnow – had 30-17, 27-23 and 35-19 wins against their respective Tarlee White skippers – Des Meyers, Frank Gorey and John Perry. The final match featured the local derby clash between Balaklava White and Balaklava Red which saw Balaklava Red snap their four game losing streak with a comfortable 28 shot all rinks up win over their sister side. Chris Cowan (BR) defeated

Tony Jones (BW) 30-17; Peter McPharlin (BR) had a tight 23-21 win over Jim Bastian (BW) and Kim Ackland (BR) accounted for Colin Stewart (BW) 30-18. While Port Wakefield Blue and Balaklava Blue sit comfortably in the top two positions, the next four sides are only separated by a spread of 10 points ensuring that many close matches are still in store for this Division. This weekend’s matches may help clarify the battle for a top four position with each of the leading sides facing a lower ranked side. Perhaps, the feature match of the round will be the clash between second placed Balaklava Blue and fifth placed Mallala White. Their previous outing saw Balaklava White win by 25 shots with 2 rinks up. Form since that time is marginally in Balaklava Blue’s favour suggesting that the home side should record a win here. Port Wakefield Blue ventures to Tarlee White with the knowledge that a win for the competition leaders can severely dent Tarlee White’s aspirations of playing finals. Having suffered only one loss for the season, so far, it is hard to tip against Port Wakefield Blue in this match. Third placed Mallala Black hosts Balaklava White with both sides coming off a loss last weekend. These sides met in the opening round of the season with Mallala Black recording a 13 shot win and receiving 11 match points.

ALICK Barr, Balaklava, watches his bowl in Division Two. Season form since then favours Mallala Black recording their second win against the Balaklava White combination. The last match of the round sees fourth placed Balaklava Red hosting Hamley Red. Balaklava Red’s recent losing streak commenced with their 23 shot loss at the hands of Hamley Red when they last met in early January; this match coincidentally

was also Hamley Red’s last win. So which way will this match go? Can Balaklava Red build upon their win last weekend? Can Hamley Red go one step further after recording a draw last Saturday?

Riverton Black had the bye on the weekend. With a bye operating in this Division and with the top sides from last weekend suffering losses, Riverton Black is now sitting top courtesy of having played one match less. Owen moved into second place, Port Wakefield Gold slipped back to third and Riverton White rounds out the top four, again, due to having played one fewer match. With each week’s results, significant changes to the standings may occur as some of the Division Three sides still have their bye to come. Hamley Bridge is the only side that will not receive their bye by the end of the minor round. This week’s round features a set of intriguing matches.

Plains Producer, Wednesday February 13, 2013

Riverton Black hosts Owen, a side that it easily accounted for when the sides last met about a month ago. A much closer contest is expected here as both sides vie for the top position in this Division. Port Wakefield Gold, after coming off a heavy loss, faces a Riverton White side that has won its last three matches. While Port Wakefield Gold inflicted a heavy defeat upon Riverton White when the sides met earlier in the season, this match is likely to be a much closer affair with either side capable of taking the honours. Hamley White hosts Tarlee Red in the final match with both sides keen to win their 6th match for the season. While Hamley White took the honours in their earlier match, recent form suggests that Tarlee Red could prove too strong for their hosts. Wasleys has the bye. RESULTS: Riverton White 96 (12) (R.

Wayne is Blyth Men’s Champion

Blyth Bowling Club held its Men’s Championship Singles on Sunday February 10. Wayne Jericho was pitted against Paul Farley, winning 25 shots to 17. The match was of a high standard, with both bowlers playing long ends, mainly from tee to tee. Farley got away to a good start and was seveb to nil up before Jericho scored. However at 12 all, Jericho gradually crept away and eventually won the game 25 to 17.

Balaklava’s Summer Horse Show

Golf Balaklava

Over the last 20 or so years our golf course has become known simply as “Balak”, obviously because that was the name of a biblical Moabite king which means, roughly, “Destroyer”. This course has certainly destroyed many an ego and millions of expectations but then, following all the best of efforts, it has been as old Omar Khayyam nailed it in one of his stanzas: “The Moving Finger writes: and having writ - Moves on: nor all thy piety or Wit - Shall lure it back to cancel half a line - Nor all thy Tears wash out a word of it…”. Thus we find, recorded immutably in The Book, 32 tales of delight and utter despair from last Saturday’s Stableford round, played from the white tees. From these records we can now reveal that, in the A Grade, our president, Ian Michael, prevailed with 40 points, heedless of the high hopes of Doug Taylor (38) and Callum Michael (37). Thereafter it was a day to forget for M. Hameister (36), R. Hart (36), W. Nagle (35), D. Hannaford (32) and W. Lokan (28). The B Grade was belted into the next post-code by a dominant Dave Barnett (48), trying to keep clear of a fire-breathing John Michael (41) and having nothing to do with Ron Carney (39) who sank Murray “Smudger” Smith courtesy of the Count. After this the whole deal lurches into the bizarre, not a good look for The Book! Anyhoo, we can only dish out the following and hope for the best: R. Hahn (30-somethingtotally-indeciferable), Louise Michael (28), A. Leaver (20-squiggle), G. Leo (24) then both Ben and Scott Michael, nothing, nada, zilch. Over in the C Grade, Scott “Semtex” Davey (47) blew the field away, storming home clear of a determined Peter Friedrichs (42) and a dogged Dean Trickett (40). After them, in an orderly fashion, trailed M. Bell (39), Noah Barnett (33), M. Keast (30), Joan Anderson (28) and stone motherless last, A. Henstridge (27). The Summer Cup crawled ever-closer to its finals as Mike Hahesy defeated Mark Loy 2/1 and Rob Veitch accounted for Rob Lawson 1-up. While this was going on, who of you noticed that big Barrie Michael quietly played the back nine, eh? Playing from the white tees produced a plethora of remarkable shots and I’ll ignore all of those crossed out in The Book, so bear with me: Eagles: Wayne Nagle (seventh & 17th), Andrew Leaver (eighth), Callum Michael (ninth and 12th) and some Bodgie called “Bunji” (second): Birdies: Dave Barnett (second & 11th), Ron Casey (16th). NTPs: Doug Taylor (third), Andrew Leaver (eighth), Rob Lawson (10th), Ian Michael ( 15th & 16th), Wayne Nagle (17th), Callum Michael (ninth & 12) and Scott “no score” Michael (sixth). Golfer of the Summer points were pinned to the tailored lapels of Dave Barnett (6), Scott Davey (5), Peter Friedrichs (4), John Michael (3), Dean Trickett (2) and we, the vanquished, but one each. This Saturday, the Destroyer awaits our feeble attempts to shine in a Par competition from the tiger tees, with starter John Michael charged with calming nerves and Scott Michael to settle those his old man misses, at the 19th. Our annual Renmark Open weekend will, this year, take place on the courses of Waikerie, Berri and Loxton starting on Friday March 22. Excellent packages are available so if you’re interested in winning the coveted Green Jacket, please contact the sainted Rob Lawson on 8862 1358.

Hamley Bridge

Half century no worries for Anton!

In a Field of 27 competing in Thursday’s Stableford competition, Anton Noack had the round of golf that we all dream about, scoring an incredible 51 points in a game where he could do no wrong! Anton, who in the past has been noted for hitting long balls onto the wrong fairway, hit the ball long and straight all day and if he can maintain this form we will see his handicap plummett. Wally Jackson must have thought he was a contender for first spot on the podium with a credible 44, coming in second from Cliff Applebee 43 (third). Others to make the better half were Roger Hahn and Kieth Klusky 41, Barry Schwartz 39, George Dahlitz

Tennis balaklava night

The nighters started the second half of their season last week with an assortment of scores, from a couple of tiebreakers to a couple of dakdroppers! Warren McRostie featured on the losing end of both droppers, against opponent Bec Houston, who slid down the Grubs pecking order to number three, and fill in Kym Woodroofe slotted in at top. Wade Hudson and Peter Rohrlach assisted the team as they made short work of the Worms. Possibly the oldest Worm, Carolyn Mutton, was a “glow worm” as she was the shining light for her team, winning three games in every set, which was a saving for Warren’s final set! Alice Parsons and fill-in Michelle Williams tried hard against the Grubs boys but were outgunned by sheer masculinity. Final score Grubs 6-38 to Worms 0-10. The other division two match was a bit closer, with Diane Gregor’s Gnats defeating Cherie Cleary’s Slugs 4-28 to 2-20. Four of six sets were 5-3s, ending two apiece, but the other two went to the Gnats to give them the win. Cherie featured in both of the Slugs’ winning sets, one each with David Northcott and the other with the flaming hot, Danielle Murphy. Viet Nguyen battled hard against the more experienced Diane, but he showed great improvement, attributed to his hair growing back! Diane’s Gnats’ team mates didn’t let her down, with Sam Vankleef, Sue Nicholson and Mary Heslop combining well as a team. Division one matches had almost identical scorelines, with Pauline Hill’s Newts defeating Tania Allen’s unlucky Gators, 4-25 to 2-23. Games were close, with three 5-3s played. Newts won the first two sets, and Wally Treverton’s new racquet was paying dividends as had a great time against opponent, Tania. Tania and Tanya Greenshields finally got Wally and Pauline in the last set. Newts Paul McBride and Gators fill-in Scott McDonald had great tussles all night with some great rallies. Gators’ Jarrad Thiele was up against Colin Mutton, who’s shoulder has recovered, at least for one week anyway! Chris Curnow’s Crocs had a win over Andrew Lane’s Beavers, 4-31 to 2-19, in what was probably the closest match of the night. Two tiebreakers were played, both favouring the Beavers, with Crocs new retiree, Marty Brice, and opponent Cherie Cmrlec, featuring in both. However, while good wins, they were the only two for the Beavers. They weren’t disgraced though, as two other sets were 5-3s and there was some good tennis played. Laney was up against the tricky leftie, Chris Curnow, while Darren “Spiderman” Scholz played the cunning Gary Gus Wilson, with Gus giving Dazza a bit of a towelling. Baby Croc, Kirsty Williams, had a slogfest against the consistent Joy Ryan, with a tie in the final set an appropriate way to finish off their close matches for the night. Joy is playing for the rest of the season for the injured Leonie, so please cross Joy’s name off your fill-in list. Hopefully there were not too many pulled muscles or prides dented after the first match back after quite some time off. Don’t forget the bingo night on February 16 at the Sports Club. Come along for a great family night. See you all next week. PREMIERSHIP TABLES DIVISION 1 – 1 Turtles, 2 Crocs, 3 Beavers, 4 Gators, 5 Newts. DIVISION 2 – 1 Worms, 2 Gnats, 3 Grubs, 4 Slugs.

It is well known that the Producer newspaper ceased production (1941-1946) during World War II, but it seems the local news was still recorded and printed – by the Oakey family who ran Hamley Bridge’s “Junction News.” Volume 1 No. 3, published on March 1, 1940, makes interesting reading, with numerous advertisements promoting the local businesses of the time. The following “standout” general advert appears on page 1:

I’M tiring of commercial radio stations flogging tunes to death. Some of you may believe I’m referring to the pop stations out there drumming Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars every 15 minutes, but I’m past that. The easy listening stations, Mix 102.3 and 104.7 MMM, appear to have the same licence with other, less popular songs. Every day, Mix would play Heart’s “All I Want To Do Is Make Love To You” at least twice. The song isn’t a bad rock ballad, arguably one of the better ones, but the real Puzzle 2 (Hard, difficulty rating 0.67) crime is Mix’s infatuation 7 4 6 3 9 8 1 5 2 with Train’s recent hit, “Hey 9 5 8 1 2 6 3 7 4 Soul Sister”. 1 3 2 4 5 7 9 6 8 8This 2 7song 5 3 has 1 6 well 4 9 and truly 3 passed 9 4 6 its 7 2use-by 8 1 date. 5 5It has 6 1 now 8 4 become 9 7 2 more 3 2 1 3 than 9 6 4a screaming 5 8 7 annoying 6 7on5 an 2 aeroplane. 8 3 4 9 1 baby 4 8 9 7 1 5 2 3 6 There are times I would Puzzle 5 (Medium, 0.51)minprefer themdifficulty playrating four 1 of 2 4a screaming 7 5 3 6 8 baby. 9 utes 3 7 8 9 6 4 2 5 1 Also, why does maligned 5 9 6 8 1 2 3 4 7 rock band, Nickleback, seem 6 3 9 5 2 7 8 1 4 to 8get1 a2 free ride on Mix? 3 4 9 7 6 5 7Several 4 5 6 songs, 8 1 9 2 which 3 4 8 not 3 1 remotely 7 6 5 9 close 2 were 6 7 4 hits, 9 5 1 feature 3 8 to 2 being 5 1 2 3 rotation 8 4 7 6 on on9 regular Mix.

songs are “unflogged” because they suck. For example, The Beatles were obviously outstanding. Their album, “Please Please Me”, features a swag of hits but to be a little different, Triple M would revert to playing other, less successful songs from that album, such as “A Taste of Honey” or “There’s a Place”. I love The Beatles as much as the next music fan, but those two songs were bodgy album fillers at best.

This property consists of a 3 bedroom stone cottage home with ample storage rooms and area at the rear of the home. The main portion of the home has ornate ceilings and timber floors and some have lino coverings. The home also has a semi tiled bathroom that does require some attention however the basics are there and it is useable until you are ready to renovate. The rear of the home has a stone wall feature and with some imagination it could be a very nice little area. This property is in the lower price bracket and it’s the bargain you have been waiting for.

Riverton wins thriller The odd upset, close results, and large winning margins were scattered across the Divisions in the 17th round of Wooroora bowls. Division One was particularly close with margins no greater than 7 shots across all matches. In one of the most enthralling matches for the season, Riverton upset competition leaders Balaklava at Balaklava last weekend’ gaining 11 match points along the way. The final margin, however, was only two shots! Mark Griffiths (R) finished one shot up over Peter Thompson (B) with the score 24-23; Joel Tucker (R) also won by one shot against Trevor Clifford (B), 25-24; while Neil Rogers (R) and Barry Taylor (B) were tied at 20 apiece. This result has significantly helped Riverton as it edges ever so closer to the top four. Second placed Port Wakefield gasped relief as it accounted for its nemesis Mallala for

John Glistak WMBA secretary

the first time this season. Only seven shots separated the two sides with Port Wakefield winning two of the three rinks on the day. Will McPharlin (PW) defeated Ian Stuart (M) 23-19 and Greg McPharlin (PW) accounted for Peter Furst (M) 25-22 while Mallala’s rink points came courtesy of Brian Smith’s one shot win over Ray Murphy (PW), 22-21. Port Wakefield’s win allows it to hold onto second place for the time being with the knowledge that several sides are hovering in the wings to displace them from their perch. n Continued page 20

Renee again representing her country

BALAKLAVA bowler, Renee McPharlin, has been selected to represent Australia in an Under 25 development squad against New Zealand. Test matches will be played in Auckland in late March, and Renee has been chosen to play second in the Triples and Fours. Renee bowled for Australia at the Under 18 level back in 2011, at Lockleys in Adelaide and Invercargill, New Zealand, in 2012. All up, Renee has represented Australia 12 times and currently remains undefeated. In January, she played for SouthAustralia in the senior State women’s side in a five test series against Victoria. Renee was selected to play third and was promoted to skipper in the east test – not a bad achievement for a student studying year 12! Congratulations to Renee for once again being selected to represent her country. Balaklava Bowling Club is extremely proud of Renee and wishes her all the best in the forth coming test series against New Zealand. The young bowler recently defeated Margaret Hillman to be crowned the ladies Club Champion, while Barry Olsen defeated Peter Thompson in the Men’s final. Peter and Barry Taylor reversed the 2011 Fours final with a very close fought victory against Steve Hawke and Trevor Clifford. – Peter Thomspon

JOEL Tucker, Riverton, congratulates a teammate on a great bowl.
