Continuing maintenance program means we are all likely to pay more

AS the end of the financial year fast nears, Wakefield Regional Council faces a big Budget dilemma; raise rates or let local roads fall into a greater state of disrepair. Speaking after last week’s council meeting, WRC chief executive officer, Cate Atkinson, said council had discussed the issue at several informal sessions of late. “Council is on track to deliver its annual works program, so it is important the community understands that,” Mrs Atkinson said. “We have 2000 kilometres of road

Les Pearson reports: network we are seeking to maintain and improve, which takes a significant part of the Budget. “We also have strong demand for other council services as well.” A recent report on council’s road condition revealed additional resources would be needed to address an accelerated road maintenance program to improve the condition of the district’s roads if we are to meet community expectations. “Council received information

from an independent engineering consultant in relation to the quality of the district’s roads,” Mrs Atkinson explained. “We can we keep delivering the same level of service we have been but the roads will further deteriorate as a result.” The increase in rate revenue will

need to be considered ahead of setting WRC’s Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP). “There will be a report presented to council next month outlining the issues regarding the LTFP and any changes to the Budget will go to community consultation,” Mrs Atkinson said. A rate rise of up to 10 per cent has been mentioned from several sources but Mrs Atkinson could neither confirm nor deny how much rates are proposed to rise, nor if they will rise at all.

“There has been no decision yet in terms of council’s rating policy and we have been taking feedback from elected members in relation to that,” Mrs Atkinson said. “We have received feedback from elected members and some would like to see an increase in services levels relating to road maintenance, which would require more resources and need the support of council to go ahead. However, I’m not in the position to forecast a rate rise.” n MALLALA CHANGES – PAGE 8

Primo expansion important to area PRIMO Smallgoods is planning an expansion of its Port Wakefield abattoir in the near future. Wakefield Regional Council chief executive officer, Cate Atkinson, met with Primo’s plant manager, Mark Viney, last month, to discuss the future expansion plans. Mrs Atkinson said Primo is looking to redesign the abattoir facility. “The board has given the go-ahead to establish some different facilities there and we are awaiting a

development application,” she said. “When the development application is lodged, we will provide a briefing on that. “They’re not looking at increasing the number of slaughter for now, but establishing new facilities which would accommodate additional activity at the site. “It is an exciting project for the area and one that reiterates the important role this site plays in the national market.”

Anzac Day services around the district were well attended by community members, with larger than usual crowds reported in all towns last Thursday. Two Wells had its biggest crowd ever, with more than 500 people attending. Balaklava also had a good turn out, with about 300 people packing the Triangle and the RSL clubrooms afterwards for breakfast. More than 200 people were at the Arch of Remembrance at Port Wakefield oval, where the presence of Australian Army personnel significantly boosted the ANZAC day tribute through its catafalque party. Proof and Experimental Establishment officer com-

manding, major Michael Hartas, gave the dawn address, with RSL president Kieran Phelan conducting the service. The majority of the crowd stayed and enjoyed breakfast afterwards at the Eagles Sport and Community Centre. Tarlee has been without its war memorial since a vehicle crashed into it in July last year. However, a new foundation stone and granite pedestal, engraved with the names of the World War I service men was in place, in time for the 9.30am service. The soldier statue for the top will be replaced soon. An additional plaque of WWII service men and women, will also be added. More than

‘Resilient’ school team meets challenge as fire rebuild continues THE start of term two presented a whole set of new challenges for staff and students at Balaklava High School following the deliberately lit fire that destroyed two classrooms during the school holidays. It’s a situation school principal, Mark Healy, described as less than ideal but was heartened by the positive response from both teachers and students alike. “They have been terrific; flexible and resilient,” he said. While one of the rooms lost in the blaze was scheduled for demolition, the fire spread to the drama block and subsequently destroyed it, along with two connected classrooms. Mr Healy said it had forced some changes, with drama classes shifted to a space at the primary school in the interim, while several

Les Pearson reports:

teachers have had to relocate their office spaces. “We are in the process of reconfiguring a number of aspects,” he said. “We’ve been in discussions now to build a new drama space and a new spot for music studies. “I expect within a fortnight, all classes will be taught on the high school campus and no one will be going over to the primary school. “I must point out their (BPS) assistance has been greatly appreciated. “Hopefully a new building will be erected in place of the former drama space over the course of the year. “We have already been looking at design options and the speed the Department of Education and Children’s Services (DECS) has rallied behind us has been terrific too.

“Within the next few weeks, we will me making contact with an architect to design the new facility.” Mr Healy said the new building would be similar to the new science block at the school, with some modifications to accommodate the performing arts and music studies classes. Year 11 and 12 drama

students have been the most adversely affected by the school holiday fire, Mr Healy conscious to return them to a regular routine as soon as possible. “The people who do these sorts of things don’t appreciate the consequences and impact this has on a broad range of people at the school,” he said.

SAFF gone as new farm group begins SOUTH Australian farmers have a new, fresh representative body heading their interests after an historic vote on Monday. At a special meeting in Adelaide, members of the South Australian Farmers Federation (SAFF) voted to replace SAFF with Primary Producers SA (PPSA). PPSA will be the sector’s peak industry body and will see the coming together of six organisations representing the commodity sectors. The member organisations include Grain Producers SA, Pork SA, Horticultural Coalition of SA, South Australian Dairy Farmers Association, Livestock Producers SA and Wine Grape Council of SA. Each of these organisations will be represented on the PPSA council, which will

set policy for all issues that affect multiple commodity groups. These organisations will meanwhile have total autonomy on how they handle issues, which specifically affect their industry alone. Inaugural chair, Rob Kerin, said it was many years since all the state’s primary producers have spoken with one voice. “Over the last two decades, we have seen groups break away from SAFF and create industry specific organisations,” he said. “Unfortunately, there has been no forum to bring these together. Today heralds a new start and we should now see primary producers have one strong and united voice to both government and the community. “Primary production is our biggest contributor to the SA economy. That has been

taken for granted for far too long and PPSA must now work hard to ensure the sector receives the respect and attention it deserves.” Agriculture Minister, Gail Gago, said the change was a significant day for the State’s farmers. “Farmers have now voted for change. They have strongly supported a new body, Primary Producers SA, for today’s modern farming sector,” she said. “Primary Producers SA will, through its structure, provide a voice and representation for all primary producers. “This has been a long road for the South Australian Farmers Federation, and I congratulate all involved for developing a new structure, which has today been widely accepted as the way forward.”

So what’s the benefit of others knowing you’re on a calorie controlled diet? During my 10 weeks, I often slipped off the wagon. For instance, one weekend when we were heading for Yorke Peninsula on a day trip I timed it perfectly so the kids would be hungry when we drove through Port Wakefield. I sent my wife Merridy into Pop Kipling’s Bakery to buy the food, including my pie with sauce, and chocolate donut (with cream and jam). The friendly girl in the store said, “I hope this isn’t for your husband.” *Busted* Accountability is powerful force. Our group met one morning last week for a group walk. We also met with my sister Leah and her partner Mark who gave us a pep talk and brought some goodies from the Health Department. It’s amazing what is on offer when you ask. Penny from Happy Hearts also gave us some good advice on exercise and kept us on track. So Team Fab is ready to go. We’ve all weighed in, and set our goals, now the rubber hits the road.

Mill Court residents watch proceeding with croquet club legend, Nancy Williams.

Marine park group prepares submission THE Marine Park 14 Alliance Group (MPAG) still has much work to do ahead of the February 2014 state elections to secure the future of both commercial and recreational fishing in the Port Wakefield community. “There is definitely more in the pipeline,” MPAG chairman, Bart Butson said. “It’s not over until the next state election comes. “If the same government is still in power, then it is probably lost.” Mr Butson said the group was working on a combined submission to present to the Select Committee on Marine Parks in South Australia ahead of its closing date on May 10. The group had a brainstorming session last week to determine what the submission would include. “We were just trying to put our ideas together as a collective,” Mr Butson said. “The document is still being drafted at the moment.” The group has long opposed the size of some proposed sanctuary zones within Marine Park 14 at the top of Upper Gulf St Vincent.

With croquet pennants completed, Balaklava Croquet Club finally was able to entertain Mill Court residents recently following several attempts to settle on a date. When residents arrived on Friday, April 19, morning tea was served, then guests and staff were shown how the game of croquet is played, followed by a picnic lunch supplied by the guests. Mill Court folk were keen to take up the mallets and have a go. Maureen Hennessy, a new Mill Court resident and a very experienced croquet player, showed the

different way she used to stand to play a ball compared to the modern way. Many of the guests showcased their ability by negotiating the maze of hoops and a row of tins set up alongside the croquet court. The residents were so enthusiastic, they wanted to try the real thing on the court, ‘making hoops’ and ‘pegging out’. Much fun was had by all and the guests seemed to have more energy than the club members, who were ready for a rest after waving them goodbye.

Country people are (usually) known for their friendliness, especially when driving. Everyone waves to others when driving along, whether it be a full hand wave, or a lift of the index finger (not the bird) – either way, it’s almost expected. Even in the city, it’s nice to wave to thank someone for letting you in another lane etc. So it came as a bit of a shock to me last week when a supposed “local” didn’t wave. I was driving along our dirt road when a tractor towing harrows came towards me. I knew a gateway was coming up, so I slowed down and pulled in, stopping completely off the road, thus saving the tractor from slowing. As he came closer I waved, expecting a wave, of “hello and thanks,” but no, nothing. The driver didn’t even look – he just drove straight past me! Needless to say, I was “spewing” and had some unpleasant thoughts about him, albeit briefly. When I told my family the story that night, they worked out who it was, and said the workman wasn’t a local – he just worked for one! I hope he becomes a “local” soon and learns how to wave! • On the waving topic, you don’t seem to see too many along the Nine Mile nowadays. And a regular YP traveller informs me waveless people are in good supply around Yorke Peninsula. Their ignorance of country tradition is put down to the fact many

WITH ANZAC day events so prominent in this issue, I thought you would like to see more of Mallala airfield, from the same Mallala Museum collection as published on page 1 last issue. This picture and details, kindly supplied by museum stalwart Gwenda Griffiths, shows a graduation parade in 1942 from the RAAF No 6 S.F.T.S. (Service Flying Training School). The first pilot training course began at Mallala on September 22, 1941. Recruits also learnt bombing, gunnery, navigation, signals, low flying etc. Between 1941 and August 1945 a total of 2,257 young men trained to become pilots. of these are in fact “shackies” or tourists who don’t know any better. However, all is not lost. It seems once you get within cooee of Minlaton or beyond Vincent, the wavers thankfully appear far more often. Bottom Enders, as they are known, will almost fall out of the car window as they madly wave at you. That’s nice. Make sure you always wave to others.

Heard! n A local who is usually a bit of a “Rooster,” turned his talents to snake charming last weekend. Following his outstanding best-on-ground performance, our man camped in his car. When it was time to go home, he couldn’t find his keys. He searched everywhere and even thought the “snake” might have swallowed them. Reluctantly, he was forced to call his wife, who then made a 200km round trip to get a spare set to her husband. He drove off, with his faithful, and obviously very patient and understanding wife, following behind. After a few kilometres, she noticed something fall from the roof of his car – yes, the original car keys. Oops – hadn’t checked there. He was banished to the DB (dog box) that night!

NEWS v District ‘Project works’ by Wakefield Regional Council will be discontinued after Wakefield Regional Council voted to change its guidelines on this and other works policies at its recent meeting The decision, which will impact on farmers, created intense debate by councillors. LES PEARSON’S in-depth report reveals the reasoning behind the decision: FARMERS and rural property owners can no longer enlist the services of Wakefield Regional Council (WRC) for private works on their property, following changes to council’s project works policy. Western Ward councillor, Richard Pain, moved a motion at last week’s meeting to amend the policy, which would allow only landowners with rubble pits on their property to access private works, such as fence line grading and contour bank construction. Farmers were previously able to contract council to do such works, which were usually carried out while council’s machinery was in the area. Cr Pain’s amended policy removed this provision. “Private works for individual residents and businesses will not be undertaken,” he read as part of the proposed new policy. “Work including contour banking, fence line clearance and grading access roads can only be considered for rural property owners providing access to rubble pits sourced from that property at the time, and charged as per council’s register of fees and charges. “Such works will be subject to maintaining council’s annual works program, with the responsibility of council’s infrastructure services manager to be accountable to ensuring the proper operation of this policy.”

THE ISSUE & DEBATE

Central Ward councillor, David Lamond, was sceptical of the policy change. “So, to clarify this, the only farmers who are going to get any private work done will be those who have got rubble pits?” he asked. Fellow Central ward councillor, Owen Chapman, was another sceptic. “I think this policy is discriminatory in the fact that if you’ve got a rubble pit on your property, you can get private works done,” he said. “If you haven’t got a rubble pit, you can’t, so I would sooner see it one way or another, either we have private works or we don’t.” Western Ward councillor, Darryl Pain, said the new policy provided some form of incentive for farmers to allow council to access rubble from their land. “I can understand that it would be in goodwill that farmers or landowners who provide us with rubble get very little compensation in the long run for how much rubble they supply us and it would be courteous to maintain the fence lines and land around their quarry area,” Cr Pain said. “I do agree with Cr Chapman on one thing, either one of these policies will discriminate because even the original one was only for rural property owners, it didn’t include individual residents and businesses. “The second one I do support is the fact we don’t cater to individual residents and businesses but we do look after those land owners providing us with rubble pits.” Cr Lamond again expressed his issue with the new policy. “How many rubble pits involve a fence line?” he asked. “Most of the rubble pits I see are out in the middle of a paddock. “I agree with Cr Chapman, this is discriminating. “Anyone that lives between here, Hoyleton and up through the Kybunga area, there’s no rubble pits at all, so all those farmers are

discriminated against, you can not do any private works for them at all.” Cr Darryl Pain explained both policies were discriminatory in their own way. “Both of these discriminate, because one you’re saying only rural property owners can get private works, but individual residents and businesses can’t get private works. “They’re both discriminatory, so as Cr Chapman said, maybe we should get rid of project works completely. “I do understand the intention to look after people with rubble pits though.” Cr Richard Pain clarified the reasoning behind his amendment to the policy. “The reason why I included the provision for property owners with rubble pits, is farmers are quite entitled to say to us ‘you’re not coming on my farm’, and council has experienced this in the past,” he said. Mayor, James Maitland, responded: “I believe you are right but there is a process for us to come and take it anyway, although it is a very complex process, and we don’t want to do it.” Cr Richard Pain continued. “These farmers receive 50 cents per tonne for the removal of that rubble,” he said. “The vehicles are driven in and out of pad-

docks and we are required to restore these, and the rubble pit also. “The machinery is there, the opportunity, at a set fee, to perhaps reward the land owner for the removal of rubble from that property. “We are removing rubble, farmers get very little and could very easily turn around and say no.”

THE REASONS

Acting infrastructure services manager, Mick Rankine, said the idea to support landowners with rubble pit came from previous discussions. “It has always been an issue, getting rubble off properties, and secondly, we do park our equipment around on private land,” he said. “This position is probably a compromise for both of us. “It has been used as a sweetener for things like parking patrol graders on private land, in the past. “Our biggest issue, at the moment, is sourcing rubble. “There are three projects on our capital works program we are struggling to access rubble for, in the southern end of the district. “There is some rubble available down there, we just can’t get on the property.

“From my perspective, the amended policy has come from discussion with me. “While I understand the angst it will cause in the farming community, it is probably the most tenable position out of all the options.” Northern Ward councillor, Greg Stevens, put forward his stance. “My decision is I don’t agree on any private works, so I will choose the motion over anything else at this stage,” he said.

New motion

Cr Chapman believed the opportunity of receiving private works would have little impact on landowners. “If someone is opposed to council coming onto their property and taking rubble, I don’t think the incentive of having some minor private works is going to alter that property owner’s mind,” he said. Southern Ward councillor, Rodney Reid, foreshadowed a new motion to remove all opportunity for private works. “So, under your motion, there will be no private works on any fence lines or contour banks for landowners,” Cr Lamond confirmed. Cr Reid explained his thoughts. “There will be no private works for individuals and businesses, and farmers come under the category of businesses,” he said. “I think it is not fair for the general public if we single out certain aspects within the community we are prepared to work with, and others we are not. “If a private business wants help setting up on a new site and came to council for help preparing that new site, the original policy would say no, they can’t do that. “But if a farmer came and asked for council to clear a fence line for a new fence, it would allow council to make that decision and I think that is quite discriminatory. “I understand the need and how some people think the convenience of a grader nearby is far more convenient than bringing in a private contractor, but if I want someone to come and check the termites in my house, I have to bring in a private contractor. “If I wanted to change my fence line, would council come and do it for me? Not likely. “So I don’t think there should be a discriminatory policy there and the concept of having no private works is the fairest solution at this point in time.” Mr Maitland asked Mr Rankine about the delaying impact private works have had on council’s annual works program. “From your discussion previously, because of private works regularly, council couldn’t complete all its own work, is that true?” he said. “There have been occasions towards the end of the year where some of this has impacted,” Mr Rankine replied. “It is a council resource issue. “The big projects are really intensive on resources and for or other works, if we have a couple of staff absences, all of a sudden we are in strife. “It can unfortunately sometimes take your eye off the ball. “The miniscule projects still have some impact, of a minor nature.” Cr Pain’s original motion was lost, while Cr Reid’s motion was carried 6-4, receiving support from Crs Reid, Stevens, Richard Pain, Darryl Pain, Darryl Ottens and Maurice Tiller. Crs Lamond, Chapman, Barry Smith and John Wood voted against.

‘Just asking’ .... Pain queries potential conflict of interest AN interesting question proved a quirky prelude to the discussion regarding changes to council’s project works policy at last week’s Wakefield Regional Council meeting (see separate story). Western Ward councillor, Richard Pain, raised a query regarding a potential conflict of interest ahead of the discussion and voting on the matter. “If I was a farmer, who had

6 www.plainsproducer.com.au

rubble pits on my property and had used council for private works in the past, because I would have a reasonable expectation of enjoying a benefit or suffering a detriment if this motion was decided in a particular manner, directly or indirectly, would it quite possibly be a conflict of interest?” he posed. “It’s not matter of saying yes or no, but just whether there is a pos-

sibility that there could be?” WRC chief executive officer, Cate Atkinson, said it was not up to council’s management, nor anyone else at the meeting, to point out potential conflicts of interest. “In relation to conflicts of interest, that is an individual person’s decision to determine that,” she said. “Where a matter is of general community interest, the advice

is that a councillor can debate a matter without declaring a conflict of interest. “Whether you have material on your property or not, it affects a broad cross-section of the community. “At the end of the day, it is an individual decision to determine whether you have a conflict of interest.” Cr Pain said he was merely asking the question.

“To me, it doesn’t seem to incorporate a lot of people in relation to this, only people that could potentially have rubble on their property,” he added. “If council has purchased rubble from them previously, there’s a possibility they could purchase it there later on, if they’ve done work there previously, they might do work there later on. “I’m just asking, that’s all.”

New deal on ‘to do’ list

WAKEFIELD Regional Council reset its stance regarding private works at Wednesday night’s meeting, outlining three separate new policies. The first, under private works, allows council to carry out works for the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI), government agencies and other private entities. The second, covering project works, determined council will no longer carry out works for individual residents or businesses, including farmers (see separate story on Page 6). The third policy related to community projects, which allows community groups to access private works through council, providing there is little effect on the ability of council to develop its work program. “The purpose of developing a separate policy in relation to community groups is to clarify that project works has a different ap-

proach to it,” WRC chief executive officer, Cate Atkinson said. “So, if you have a community group seeking to have work undertaken, and I think that group should be known to council as a community group, then we are able to undertake that work at the appropriate fee. “For instance, if the Lochiel Progress Association wanted to do some work, they would be able to seek to do that work under the community project work policy.”

Les Pearson reports: Southern Ward councillor, Barry Smith, queried application of the policy. “If the Hamley Bridge committee wanted some work done at the oval, which is an asset of the council, would they also have to find funding as well to pay council for that work?” he asked. “When community groups have leased property and are managing that property, I think that would constitute something they would need to contribute to,” Mrs Atkinson explained. Cr Smith posed: “I was just thinking the outside of most of the ovals in the district get graded when the grader is in the town, so would that be a charge?” Western Ward councillor, Darryl Pain, said there would be certain works that were separate to community projects.

HELP SAVE THE WAKEFIELD

NYNRM Lower North group member, Kerry Ward, reflects on a sample of river water from the Rocks. Northern and Yorke Natural Resource Management (NYNRM) is hoping plenty of community members will take part in its “Wakefield Biodoversity Day” on Friday, May 17. The day kicks off at 9.30am at the Rocks reserve, south east of Balaklava. The Wakefield River Project aims to protect and enhance biodiversity in the section of the river between Undalya and Rocks, targeting important riparian (ecology relating to river) habitat.

There have been various historical impacts on native vegetation over the years, such as droughts, floods, erosion, weeds, stock and cropping. NYNRM is aiming to restore the complex structure of native vegetation by revegetation of plants, including species of shrub, canopy and groundcover. As part of the day at the Rocks, a selection of experts will take people on “ a journey down the Wakefield river.” Not exactly the whole river in one

day – but you will hear, see and experience a wealth of information on the river and its biodivsersity. • One of the panel of experts discussing the river is NYNRM Lower North group member, Kerry Ward, pictured here taking a water sample from the Rocks pool. Kerry reveals some interesting facts on the river, below – and there’s more details on the biodiveristy day in the advertisment on this page.

“It’s maintaining the asset that’s there; it’s not building something different,” he said. “If they wanted to build a driveway at the football ground, then maybe that would be charged differently.” Southern Ward councillor, Rodney Reid, also clarified the intent of the community projects policy. “My understanding is it is not applying to things that aren’t already on the works program,” he said. “It could be projects, using Owen for example, we submitted an application to put in a walking trail, which we were prepared to fund, on council land. “We sought council help in doing that and if it meant we had to pay the council to make it happen as it was not something that was scheduled on the works program, that’s where something like this policy would allow it to happen.”

That ‘paperless’ proposal goes to: A LOOK of terror swept across the faces of some elected members at the Wakefield Regional Council meeting last week when the suggestion was made to investigate a “paperless system” to provide information to elected members. Southern Ward councillor, Barry Smith, was the proponent of the concept, which would involve replacing information usually mailed or presented to councillors on paper, with digital versions of the same documents. T h i s would mean using some form of laptop computer or tablet on a regular basis, a giant leap forward in technology for many of the more senior elected members. Some chuckled to themselves at the thought of coming to grips with such technological advances, which is fair enough. Cr Smith said a lot of other councils were moving in that

direction and wondered if it was worth taking a look at. Mayor, James Maitland, picked up on the chuckles and murmuring from a few elected members. “Maybe some people aren’t happy to go down that path,” he observed. WRC corporate services manager, Steve Jonas, said some councillors had experimented with a similar system using laptops a few years ago but found it did not work well. Mr Jonas said other councils have converted to using personal iPads for elected members and although some were sceptical, they have since embraced the change. WRC chief executive officer, Cate Atkinson, indicated she was happy to investigate the various options available and report back to council, although with limited time available, she did not put a time on when that would be.

Why we need to care for our river n The Wakefield River has a relatively small catchment covering 690 square kilometres. The highest elevation in the catchment is 600 metres above sea level. n There is one gauging station on the Wakefield just below Rhynie. This is a concrete V shaped structure. It measures flows, salinity, salt loads, rainfall and water temperature. Flows, salinity and rainfall are measured every hour and transmitted by telemetry back to Adelaide. They are available on the WATERCONNECT web site hourly. n On Tuesday, April 23, the gauging station was showing a flow of 2.9 Megalitres/day (ML/d). This would fill the Balaklava swimming pool 8 times in a day. The salinity was 4,200 parts per

KERRY WARD explains: million. (seawater is 36,000ppm; drinking water should be below 500ppm). n In the last 10 years half the annual flows have been below 1250 ML/ annum. The highest flow, 12,100 ML/a in this period was in 2010. n Highest salinity at the gauging station in that period was 9,600 ppm. n Estimated salt load that passed the gauging station in 2010 was 19,000 tonnes. An important function of a drainage system like the Wakefield is to remove salt from the landscape. Some of this salt is a result of historical land clearance and subsequent mobilisation. However annual rainfall also deposits 100 -200 kg per hectare every year.

May 10 deadline for Eisteddfod entries

n wards, councillors reduced:

Mallala council to change The number of councillors and wards will be reduced in the District Council of Mallala following a lengthy electoral review process which last month saw the council make an in-principle decision to continue with a ward structure for the district. As DCM entered the final stages of its elector representation review councillors were presented with two options at its April 22 meeting. The first option was to have no wards and nine councillors plus a mayor elected by the community; the alternative was three wards comprising three representatives for each ward and a mayor elected by the community. Each option would see the total number of councillors reduced from 11 to 10. Councillors were divided on what structure should be used to best represent the community, with the first option of having no wards being lost narrowly. Councillors Wasley, McColl, Jones and Strudwicke all voted in favour

Bec O’Brien reports: of abolishing the longheld ward system, with the general consensus being councillors were representing the whole council area not just pockets of it. Those councillors pushing for the continuation of wards included Cr Heley, Cr Summerton, Cr Daniele, Cr Keen and mayor Kennington. Councillors Anne Picard and Yvonne Howard did not attend the meeting. Councillors also voted for the names of Two Wells, Lewiston and Mallala/Dublin for the new three-ward option. DCM chief executive officer, Charles Mansueto, said following the most recent round of community consultation, eight written submissions were received with five supporting the no-ward option. A three-week community consultation period on the new proposal starts tomorrow (May 2) and will close on May 24, with councillors making a final decision at its June meeting.

The State government will review the Patient Assistance Transport Scheme (PATS), which offers financial assistance for people in regional areas who need to travel to access services. The decision followed the introduction of a motion before Parliament by the Independent Member for Frome, Geoff Brock. Health Minister, Jack Snelling, said Mr Brock had raised concerns he had with the scheme and the assistance it was offering for people living in regional areas of our state. “The scheme has not been reviewed for a number of years and I agree it is time to take a look at eligibility and benefits,” Mr Snelling said. “I think we need to have a look at how we can better allocate funds presently there to make sure those who are most disadvantaged are getting the money and assistance they need.” PATS currently supports people in regional areas by providing a transport subsidy when they need to travel in excess of 100km to access specialist services. “Last financial year close to 29,000 people accessed assistance through this program, and more 44,000 payments were made,” Mr Snelling said. “This is an important Geoff Brock service and I want to make sure we are delivering this support in the best way we can.” Mr Brock said the government’s decision to take decisive action and start a review was commendable. “What will be more commendable will be a determination which sets down refined eligibility criteria and fair reimbursement of costs associated with rural and remote South Australians who are required to travel to the metropolitan area to consult with a specialist,” Mr Brock said. “The scheme was updated to make the payment process more efficient, consistent, faster and fairer for all patients in late 2011. However, these changes did not go far enough. I welcome the decision to undertake a broader review.” Family First MLC, Robert Brokenshire, welcomed the review in a strongly-worded statement on Family First’s “years of campaigning to improve subsidy.” “For years it has been out of step with the true cost of travelling to Adelaide for health services,” Mr Brokenshire said. “The former Health Minister told me in writing the Labor government had increased the funding, but my Freedom of Information request revealed the contrary.” Mr Brokenshire said Family First would keep the government accountable to holding a full and effective review into PATS funding. “We won’t accept any spin or half-measures on PATS like we’ve been given in the past,” he said.

WHEN living in a shared household, the TV isn’t always something agreed upon. Sometimes, to save argument, I will cop it on the chin and watch whatever on-screen torture my lovely partner seems willing to sit through. One such show is The Voice, yet another reality singing competition, albeit a little more filtered than a lot of talent shows, as competitors can be unsigned musical acts. This lends itself to a better talent pool, although all the sobby back stories and cliché comments coming from contestants claiming they’re chasing their dreams grind my gears. Then there’s the multitude of cross-promotion that often pollutes a number of other shows on the Nine Network, predominantly A Current Affair. Sadly, I admit there are

times during The Voice that catch me off guard and I start enjoying it. Usually this is when Delta Goodrem is rejected as a contestant’s coach choice but now the audition phase is over, this can’t happen any more. However, twice last week during the battle rounds, I was roused by performances by competitors going head to head. The battle between Anna Weatherup and Celia Pavey, singing “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri, was one of those moments where you just have to put your pride aside and say “yep, that was pretty good”. Both girls stood there with their guitars and delivered a vocal performance worthy of any recording contract. There’s only one winner in these rounds and Celia went through but wow, it was tough to split the pair.

Harrison Craig and Tim Moxey then lifted the bar with their performance of Josh Groban’s “You Raise Me Up”. Moxey was great, don’t get me wrong, but the young fella with the two first names and a killer stutter belts out some huge notes. Seriously, Craig can’t deliver a basic sentence without lengthy pauses but when he sings, it just disappears. What’s with that? It was suggested in our loungeroom that he should sing every sentence he tries to speak. This would be fine when delivering good news but in some situations, it wouldn’t work. Like when ordering a pizza over the phone. Or breaking up with a partner. Or delivering a eulogy. The idea is fundamentally flawed from the start really.

the two companies amalgamated, Waite became chairman of directors of Elder Smith & Co. Ltd., a position he held for 34 years. He was also managing director of Beltana Pastoral Co. Ltd. and Mutooroo Pastoral Co. Ltd. In 1913, Peter Waite presented the Urrbrae Estate (134 acres) to the University of Adelaide. The Waite Institute was established on this site in 1924. Additional lands were also given to the South Australian government for the purpose of establishing Urrbrae Agricultural High School. Peter and Matilda Waite both died in 1922, leaving an incredible legacy to the people of SA, including the magnificent Urrbrae House which is now managed by the University.

The original Urrbrae House was built by Robert Macgeorge in the late 1840s but, during the late 1880s, most of it was demolished and rebuilt to become the magnificent Urrbrae House we know today. While Peter spent much time in the country, Matilda reared the growing family at Urrbrae, their education under the strict eye of a governess. Despite the affluence of life at Urrbrae (compared to station life at Paratoo), and the adjustments she made in line with her “husband’s burgeoning career and pride in his achievements,” it is said that Matilda herself did not change. She continued to live a simple life. In 1883 Peter Waite became chairman of Elder’s Wool & Produce Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Elder Smith & Company and, in 1888, when

station and gradually developed interests in other properties. He was one of the first to realise the value of fenced as against open runs, spending substantial amounts on fencing and provision of water for stock. In 1864, Peter Waite married his first cousin, Matilda Methuen, from Leith, Scotland, and they had eight children. For some years they lived at Paratoo until he purchased Urrbrae estate in 1875 under a private financial arrangement with Sir Thomas Elder.

Heritage Highlights

ost of us have heard of the Waite Research Institute, but what about the man behind the name? Peter Waite was born in Kirkaldy, Fife, Scotland, on May 9 1834, third son of James Waite, a farmer, who died when Peter was only five months old. When he left school, Peter was apprenticed to an ironmonger; then in 1859, at the age of 25, he followed his brothers to Australia. His brother, James, was a part owner of Pandappa station near Terowie, and it was here that Peter worked for several years, acquiring a thorough knowledge of the pastoral industry. Another brother, David, also worked in the near vicinity. In conjunction with Sir Thomas Elder, Peter Waite bought Paratoo

NEWS FEATURE v ANZAC DAY

ANZAC

Honouring a new era at Brinkworth Report & pictures: ANNE GREEN AS more than 140 people gathered at Brinkworth RSL in the predawn light, and awakening birds made their presence heard in the trees overhead, the sense of anticipation built, until the ANZAC day dawn service began at 6.30 am. Brinkworth, Koolunga & Yacka RSL Sub Branch president, Nick Hart, welcomed everyone and introduced pastor James Leach, who conducted the service, in the course of his address mentioning his family members who had served in the armed forces. Independent Member for Frome, Geoff Brock, was guest speaker, reminding listeners although we all had our own concerns and fears, we were indeed the luckiest country in the world and for that we should thank not councils or politicians but all who fought. “I am privileged to be here,” he said, “with all the young children and youth here today.” “I pay tribute to you and your RSL for reinvigorating this commemoration.”

Wreaths laid by Geoff Brock (on behalf of the constituents of Frome), Mayor James Maitland (Wakefield Regional Council), Dianne Jones (for 6 RAR) and Murray Burnley (RSL), were added to one from SCOSA, delivered the previous day. Nick Hart presented framed certificates of appreciation to Pastor James and Brian Wundke (organist), as well as major helpers and sponsors of the day. ‘Stand fast, the Last Post, and a minute’s silence were observed before Nick Hart read The Ode. Revielle was played and the National

Anthem sung before Murray Burnley raised the Australian flag to conclude the formalities. Nick Hart then invited everyone to enjoy a coffee with milk or “brown milk” (of the alcoholic variety), to inspect the freshly decorated club rooms and the raffle prizes, displayed on a large table inside, then to enjoy breakfast across the road in the Memorial Hall. He added a game of two-up would be run if enough people were interested. n MORE REPORTS AND PICTURES, PAGES 12, 13, AND 15. CLOCKWISE from above, RSL president, Nick Hart, thanks Jaymi Milic.

‘Significant’ copper and gold discovery Some of the highest grade copper-gold drill results in the 150-year history of South Australia’s historic Moonta-Wallaroo mining region were announced yesterday by mining exploration company, Adelaide Resources Limited (ARL) Results are from ARL’s first drilling program on the wholly-owned Alford West prospect within the company’s Moonta copper-gold project. The project is located at the southern Plains Producer, Wednesday May 1, 2013

end of South Australia’s world-renowned Olympic Copper Gold Province which has already yielded major producing mines such as BHP Billiton’s Olympic Dam, OZ Minerals’ Prominent Hill and the famous MoontaWallaroo mines. Significant other deposits discovered in the area in recent years and currently in predevelopment stage, include Oz Minerals’ Carrapateena and Rex Minerals’ Hillside, the latter about 60km south of the ARL project.

“These are some of the most significant copper-gold assay results ever achieved from exploration on the state’s Yorke Peninsula and we believe they will be some of the best results any company, big or small, will achieve in Australia in 2013,” said Adelaide Resources’ managing director, Mr Chris Drown. “These initial copper and gold grades are comparable with the grades from early drilling at the likes of the now producing mines at Olympic Dam and Prominent Hill, and

exceed early exploration results from Rex’s Hillside project,” he said. “Significantly, our discovery is at much shallower depths than deposits like Olympic Dam or Prominent Hill, with some high grade intersections commencing within just 5 metres of the surface.” ARL currently has interests in 22 exploration licences, covering more than 7,800 sq km within South Australia, the Northern Territory and Queensland. www.plainsproducer.com.au

Huge Two Wells crowd ‘Fantastic to see so many people here’

... said Two Wells RSL president, Tony Flaherty

Bec O’Brien reports:

ABOVE: Two Wells Scout Group members lay rosemary in remembrance. Laying a wreath in honour of Private John Harris, the youngest Australia soldier killed in Gallipoli, were Phil Flaherty, Bernadette Ielasi and Rebecca Ielasi.

The biggest crowd ever seen at the Two Wells Anzac Day service saw more than 500 people honour thousands of fallen Australian soldiers and pay tribute to those currently serving. Cars lined the main street as far back as the cemetery, children were lifted onto shoulders to gain a good vantage point, and residents perched on the surrounding stone wall as Two Wells Returned Services League president, Tony Flaherty, led proceedings. Tony said it was humbling to see such a crowd, especially families and their children, attend the service, saying each year the memorial service had grown in numbers. “It was just fantastic to see so many people there,” he said. “It is an emotional time, they’re really just young men and women, it’s just a tragedy, but that’s why we honour them. “And to see so many children, it was inspiring, they are the future generations who will continue to remember and honour the fallen.” Jacqui Bennett, wife of serving airforce flight sergeant, Adrian, read out a list of Australian soldiers killed in Afghanistan, while former radio personality, Scott McBain read the well-known poem “The Unknown Soldier”, Two Wells local, Jenny Dowling led the Prayer of Remem-

brance, and Sue Wendland read Psalm 23: The Lord Is My Shepherd. Current serving soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan also attended the service, as did a number of interstate visitors from Sydney and Victoria. Representing the District Council of Mallala, councillors Mark Wasley and Karen McColl laid a wreath, as did WWII veteran and Two Wells resident, Bill Milton, with many residents also coming forward to pay their respects. Following the service more than 400 “gunfire” breakfast meals of bacon, eggs, toast and beans, plus hot tea and coffee, were served at the Two Wells RSL hall, with the large crowd getting through 27 dozen eggs and more than 25 kilograms of bacon!

NEWS FEATURE v ANZAC DAY

ANZAC

Balaklava’s best as 300 in tribute ABOUT 300 people attended Balaklava’s ANZAC day dawn service – one of the biggest crowds seen in recent years. People began arriving as early as 6am, waiting in respectful silence as organisers set up for the 6.30 start. As the moment neared and RSL member and Vietnam veteran Warren Durdin began proceedings, the crowd had grown into one of the biggest seen at the Triangle in living memory. They stretched across the width of the Triangle, some seated, but scores standing in muted groups. Many were young, from toddlers with mum and dad to six-year-olds with Nan and Pop. And there were teens and 20-somethings, rising through the years to octogenerians and above. And then, of course there were our local old Diggers, whose ranks slowly and sadly are diminishing. But they proudly took part in the service as ... “age shall not weary them, not the years condemn.” As the sounds of the Last Post, Reveille and the national anthem drifted into the morning sky, people moved towards breakfast in the small RSL rooms at the rear of the council chamber. There members and partners of Balaklava Lions Club, assisted by the CWA ladies, were busy preparing bacon, eggs and other tasty treats, juices and coffee ... until there was no more. Most who attended were fed, but even if they missed out, there were no complaints. It was not a day to complain. The Diggers never did. Those who didn’t return from Australia’s conflicts never would. This was a day for respectful remembrance. And this day the people of Balaklava and nearby areas did it very well indeed.

NEWS FEATURE v ANZAC DAY 100 gather at war memorial:

Blyth again shows respect n REPORT and PICTURES by Janet Zweck Blyth community gathers for its annual ANZAC day picture at the town war memorial.

Margaret and John Williams with the “Dead Man’s Penny”.

On a beautiful ANZAC day morning, more than 100 locals assembled at the Blyth war memorial for the ANZAC day service. Ian Roberts, OAM, conducted the service, and welcomed the gathering to honour the soldiers who fought, or are currently on duty, during war time. Janet Zweck read a small story of nurse, captain Vivian Bullwinkel, born at Kapunda. Vivian was shot while on duty in 1942, and returned home after surviving as a prisoner of war for three and a half years. Ian continued the story Tanya and Brett Bertelsmeier enjoy a story from Verna Wood at Blyth’s ANZAC day service.

Army presence at Port Wakefield n IN another very moving dawn ceremony at Port Wakefield, a big crowd gathered at the Arch of Remembrance at the town oval. The presence of military serving members from the nearby Proof Range makes this a particularly impressive ANZAC tribute. n RIGHT: Port Wakefield Proof and Experimental Establishment, officer commanding, Major Michael Hartas gives the formal address, with RSL president, Kieran Phelan shown at right.

reading, about the events at the Battle of Lone Pine in 1915. The service continued, with Don Zweck reading the Ode, and

concluded with Advance Australia Fair. An official photograph of the gathering was taken in front of the war memorial.

Local man, John Williams, gave the locals the opportunity to view a “Dead Man’s Penny” which was given to the family of his uncle, Joseph B Keen, of the 10th Battalion, who was killed in action at Pozieres. The history of the Dead Man’s Penny began in 1916, with the realisation by the British government, that some form of an official token of gratitude should be given to the fallen service men and women’s bereaved next of kin. The design of the 12

centimetre disk, cast in bronze gunmetal, incorporates an image of Britannia and a lion, two dolphins representing Britain’s sea power and the emblem of Imperial Germany’s eagle being torn to pieces by another lion. Britannia is holding an oak spray with leaves and acorns. Following the service, community members then retreated to Padnaindi Reserve and enjoyed a cuppa and morning tea provided by the Blyth Progress Association members and the community.

RIGHT: A grade captains, Craig Taylor (Hamley Bridge) and Tallan Leighton (Two Wells) watch as veteran John Flage tosses the coin.

Bombers crush the Roosters • From back page The Bomber midfield of Valor (four goals) and Win Thach, Ryan Appleton and led by captain, Craig Taylor (three goals), proved the difference in the engine room, while Nathan Flynn was outstanding across half back, taking plenty of grabs in defence. Barnett said it was a complete team effort on the day, with the lead ballooning out to 49 points at the final change. “It has been a while we’ve been trying to do it,” he said. “They (Two Wells) were down in patches but our blokes worked really hard. “I don’t know about smashing them in the midfield but we definitely matched them. “I think as a coach, you’re always nervous a bit but with 12 to 14 minutes to go in the last and we were eight or nine goals up, it was going to take a big turn around for them to win.” Barnett again praised his defensive unit. “They’re starting to form a good

bond back there now,” he said. The pivotal ruck duel between Kirk Heberle and Simon Feast went to Heberle. As the win neared, a hearty home support base got behind the Bombers. “The crowd was good, although Two Wells always have a good following,” Barnett said. After star recruit, Mal Greenwood, ruled himself out before the match, youngster Tyler Darwin was again called on as a late replacement. “Full credit to him, he put his hand up before the game when he was right,” Barnett said. “Tyler came in, which was good as I always want to play at least one kid and some weeks that doesn’t

happen but I try to do it as often as possible.” While annoyed by the loss, Thomson found a few positives to take out of the match, including debutants, Brandon Daly and Nik Seccafien. “Their skills were better than a lot of senior players on Saturday,” Thomson said. The youngsters may have done enough to earn themselves another match this weekend. Roosters captain, Ned Seccafien (three goals), put in a standard gritty performance again, despite copping a heavy knock early and spending the night in hospital with delayed concussion. “He and Tim Hines were probably our only real contributors on the day,” Thomson surmised.

Rams shake Tigers Virginia too good for courageous United REPORT: Les Pearson VIRGINIA proved too strong for a plucky United in their contest at Virginia on Saturday, the Rams shaking off a valiant Tiger effort to win by 57 points. The Tigers kicked with a five-goal breeze and made use of it early, booting six goals but conceding two, to take a four-goal lead into the first break. United continued to defend well in the second term but late goals to Virginia helped the Rams kick to a nine-point buffer at half time. Tigers coach, David White, was reasonably content with his team’s early endeavour. “Our first and second quarters were quite good but we allowed them to get a few late in the half,” he said. “They just got a bit more of the footy through the middle of the ground. “Their ability to kick goals into the wind was the big difference at the end of the day.” Virginia outscored United in the third quarter, booting six pivotal goals into the breeze to the Tigers’ five. “There were a couple of instances in the third quarter where we went forward but didn’t take our opportunity and they went straight back down and kicked goals in a five or six minute patch, and that really hurt us,” White said. “We certainly can’t afford to do that, we need to make every post a winner. Virginia coach, Joss DenEngelse, was less than satisfied with his side’s start to the match and implored them for better efforts.

YOUNG Tiger, Nicholas McArdle, can’t quite grab hold of Virginia’s Luke Karutz in the junior colts game on Saturday.

Final score virginia 19.14 (128) d UNITED TIGERS 11.5 (71) Best: Virginia - B.Robertson, B.Niklaus, A.Mark, M.Young, B.Wanganeen, A.Johnston United Tigers - B.Shimmin, J.Chapman, K.Kirvan, M.Brown, M.Pym

“We got off to a slow start, which is now the third week in a row we’ve done that,” he said. The midfield battle was in the Tigers’favour early but the Rams’ onball brigade turned that around, led by Anzac Day medallist, Brad Robertson. “He had a quiet first quarter but picked up after that and probably had 30-35 touches in the end,” DenEngelse said. “We were looking for a response going into the breeze to work harder and the boys lifted their work rate.

“The midfield worked back a lot better, especially when we were kicking into the breeze.” The Rams were initially blazing with the wind in their backs but when instructed to spot up their targets, their game plan began to take shape once more. “You can get caught up in the breeze and start bombing long rather than trying to hit your targets,” DenEngelse said. Full forward, Brendon Niklaus, had two goals to half time, with defender, Jared East, battling well for United.

“East did an excellent job on him early in the piece before the floodgates opened towards the end of the match,” White said. Niklaus kicked seven goals in the second half, including several long bombs from outside 50. “He definitely has a licence to do that, especially with a five-goal breeze at his back,” DenEngelse said. “The first half was pretty ordinary but we lowered our eyes in the second half and spotted up Brendon 30 metres away, which worked a lot better.” Adrian Mark was again solid in defence for the Rams, while Matthew Young, Barry Wanganeen and Anthony Johnstone were other solid contributors on the day. White came away with the match reasonably content. “It wasn’t a bad effort but they just ran away with it in the end,” he said. With eight players missing from their line-up, the coach felt the team gave its all. “In hindsight, I guess having eight out would the only way you could be reasonably happy with a nine-goal loss,” White said. Ruckman, Will Banton, reinjured his calf early in the match and will miss a few weeks. Jack Chapman was again solid for the Tigers. “He’s played a bit of forward and a bit of back at the club in the past but he’s shown some good form back there in previous weeks and was pretty good again taking contested marks and used the ball well considering the conditions,” White said. Kirk Kirvan shone in a defensive forward role, while also rotating through the midfield. Brad Shimmin was named United’s best in a four-quarter effort.

Eagles upset Balaklava in brilliant performance REPORT: Les Pearson A 19-POINT margin does not really do justice for HummocksWatchman Eagles’ performance on Saturday, defeating rivals Balaklava in a huge boil-over at Ralli Park. The Peckers can thank Hamley Bridge for taking much of the attention off of the embarrassing loss, after the Bombers rolled the reigning premiers, Two Wells, in the other big upset of the round. The Eagles opened the better team, Justin Cicolella running around unchecked in the first quarter, slotting through two team-lifting goals to help the Eagles build a five-goal lead with the breeze in the first term. When it was Balaklava’s turn to reply, the Peckers barely raised a yelp, with inaccurate kicking costing them early. A frustrated Balaklava coach, Stuart Lamond, could only watch from the sidelines after re-aggravating his hamstring strain. “They used the wind to their advantage in the first quarter and played some pretty good footy,” he said. “They got a lead on the board and continued it on. “They beat us in a lot of areas on the day, most of the key areas. “Clearances, work rate, their skills and efficiency kicking for goal were a few to start with. “They used the ball a lot better and adjusted to the windy conditions better.” A stylish goal to rookie, Tyler Williams, highlighted a scrappy third term but the Eagles were looking like winners at the final change, the lead up over six goals as the wind began to die down. Todd McPharlin lifted in the last, kicking three fourth quarter goals and breathing life back into the Peckers’ chances before Todd Twelftree jagged a handy goal to snuff out any Balaklava revival. With ruckman, Shaun Light, returning to the team, Anzac Day medallist, Adam Turrell, was allowed to play in the midfield, while Cicolella was predominantly used across half back. “He (Light) really helped our structure,” HWE coach, David Cluse said. The Eagles’ performance was in stark contrast to the hiding they received at the hands of Mallala the week before. “We’ve been banging on about having a purpose in everything we do all preseason,” Cluse said. “Our intent and tackling pressure was good again as it has been in the

last few weeks. “It’s probably the third week in a row it has been better than it was from the week before.” Cluse likes his wingmen to hold their width on the field and both Jarred Manners and James Mader followed that instruction to a tee. “They really did well and didn’t get sucked into the ball,” Cluse said. “I thought in the last quarter we held onto the ball and chipped it around really well. “I think I have a better spread of the experienced players now, which also helps.” Jack Hatcher, named best for the Eagles, was in a midfield rotation with Todd Twelftree and Tyler Williams. The three were given the job of shutting down Todd McPharlin, and when McPharlin was out of the centre circle, that focus shifted to Lachy Michael. “It was hard to pick the best players but Jack got my nod as I always reward those who get the job done first,” Cuse said. HWE looked like they wanted the win more. “It seemed that was the case,” Lamond said. “Although, it’s not easy to say that, as we were 1-2 after losing two in a row. “So, we had everything to play for to get ourselves back on track with a win but just didn’t have the desire and the hunger for it. “I thought their structure was different to what we were used to, which was to be expected. “You can have all the structures in the world but if you don’t have the basics or the fundamentals in place, you’re not going to win many games of footy. “We’ve just got to continue to improve from here on in and we’ve got a lot of improving to do.” Mitch Daniel was named best player for Balaklava after his run-with role on Cicolella. “He had a busy first quarter for them but Mitch did well to shut him down,” Lamond said. “Derek Friedrichs did a good job on a dangerous forward and along with Mitch, they were probably our two shining lights on a pretty dim day for us.” With the bye this week, the Peckers have a few points to ponder. “We’ve got to get back to basics and find the desire to win again,” Lamond said. “It’s an important month of footy coming up, which will define our season.”

Sport v Netball

Tigers must lift United v Two Wells

THE Tigers can’t take a trick with injuries at the moment and Will Banton’s extended spell will again hurt their chances for this weekend’s game at Long Plains. While competitive so far this year, United hasn’t quite hit its straps to shape as a genuine top four contender. That’s not to say the Tigers can’t make the top four, but they will need some big performances in coming weeks to make that belief a reality. They encounter Two Wells at a pretty rough time, after the Roosters were crushed by Hamley Bridge in no uncertain manner. “I’m sure they’ll come out firing from the loss,” United coach, David White said. “Our focus is to put together as close to a four-quarter performance as possible and if we do, we can match it with them.” With the possibility of both forwards Lee Allmond and

Les Pearson previews round 5 APFL matches Andrew Hardiman returning to the Roosters’ line-up this weekend, Two Wells should expect a better showing. At least, that’s what coach, Mark Thomson, is looking for, following a pretty unimpressive loss to the Bombers, which ended a huge winning streak. “We’ll regroup, we’ve spoken about it after the game,” Thomson said. Thursday night’s selections will be interesting, given both Allmond and Hardiman’s return. “Two will have to go out but I’m not sure who they will be at this stage,” Thomson said. With pressure on spots, you can expect the Roosters to come out all guns blazing but if United can put a break on early, the Tigers are capable of winning for sure.

HW Eagles v Hamley Bridge

HE was playing it down this week but I’m sure Hamley Bridge coach, Ash Barnett, has had a huge smile on his face lately, after his team’s huge win over the reigning premiers on Saturday. This confidence will play a huge part in how the Bombers go against Hummocks-Watchman Eagles at Port Wakefield this weekend. “We’re off to Port Wakefield and we have to back it up now,” Barnett said. “Sure, it’s two wins in a row but if we don’t follow it up, all that good work goes out the window. “They’ve had a win, so they’ll come in with their tails up as well.” Dale Norman returns to the club from overseas, while

ruckman, James Sullivan, is also back in the playing frame. Both will need to make their way back into the Bomber line-up through the reserves. “It’s something we haven’t had the luxury of doing in the past couple of years,” Barnett said. Eagles coach, David Cluse, wants another focussed effort like what his team produced against the Peckers on the weekend. “We’ve got to concentrate on our goals and I think if we can meet our goals, we will go close to winning most games,” he said. They’ll undoubtedly take a stack of confidence from the win as well, although with Shaun Light returning to work, it will mean a change of structure from the one that delivered the upset over Balaklava. This is a danger match for the Eagles, with Hamley Bridge up and about now.

Mallala v Virginia

THE team that wins this

THE Tigers will feel the absence of ruckman, Will Banton – out with a calf injury – when they take on Two Wells this Saturday.

match goes straight to the top of the table and confirms its status as a premiership contender. Virginia’s form to date hasn’t been too bad, although the loss to Two Wells in round one was a costly one for the Rams. Virginia coach, Joss DenEngelse, was quick to set his sights on the Magpie’s gun-laden forward line. “With Mallala’s dangerous forwards, it shapes up for some defensive roles for a few players to stop them,” he said. The importance of this clash was not lost on the Rams’ mentor.

“It becomes a mini grand final for us with top spot up for grabs,” he said. “We will need to pressure their ball carriers and there will be a big focus on how we attack the footy.” Mallala has been irresistible after falling one point short of Balaklava in round one. The Magpies should welcome Jason Earl back after injuring himself in that match, while Brad Griffiths is also a strong chance to return to the fold. They’re two handy ins to a team making every post a winner at this stage of the season and they’ll be hard to stop on their home deck.

SPORT v Netball

Virginia holds on for one-goal victory Virginia snuck home by one goal against Long Plains on Saturday, 46 to 45. Hummocks continued their onslaught, beating Balaklava by 28 goals, 48 to 20, and Hamley Bridge dominated Two Wells, 43 to 30. Virginia defeats Long Plains Virginia held on to take a one goal lead despite a second half surge from Long Plains. Long Plains scored 29 goals to Virginia’s 17 in the second half, but it wasn’t enough. Virginia’s success was secured in the second quarter, shooting 18 goals compared to Longies’ eight. Twelve of these goals were shot by GA, Kristine Weetra. Virginia coach, Sherilee Matheson said it was a great contest of hard but fair netball. “The Plains are a quality side with great defence. “We’ve had two weeks of hard trainings and it showed in the first half.” “Long Plains came out strong after half time and we had a lapse in concentration.” Virginia’s best player was another Emma Flanagan who was filling in at C (there are two Emma Flanagans playing for Virginia!). The Anzac medal was presented to Virginia GK, Jamie-Lee Healey. Michelle Doherty, coach of Long Plains, said it was a case of so

goalies, the wind causing some attempts to miss completely and the third quarter saw only nine goals scored in total. Hamley coach, Lee Barnett attributed this to the defensive pressure from both teams.

TWO Wells goal keeper, Cheryl Herman, tries to intercept a pass to Hamley Bridge shooter, Tania Knott, in the A2 match on Saturday. Two Wells coach, Stacey Pym credited Hamley’s height in goals as an advantage. “Hamley capitalised on their opportunites with goaliesAmber Rogers and Sarah Koch and centrePaula White combining

well,” Stacey commented. “We had some great passages of play, but we made too many errors.” Two Wells were forced to try different combinations in the mid court due to the loss of Phoebe Schmidt last week.

“Trisha Beere, Cheryl Herman and Kerry Beagley all played well when they came on. “Sharnie Kent shot and rebounded well to earn best player.” Two Wells finished the game strongly, winning

the last quarter. Quarter scores (Hamley – Two Wells): First 12-6, second 29-17, third 35-20, final 43-30. Hummocks beats Balaklava Hummocks again led from start to finish and Balaklava coach, Carolyn Michael described them as being in a class of their own. “Full credit to Sam,” said Carolyn. “She has these girls playing really great netball. “Defensively they worked really hard and forced us to make way too many mistakes.” “We have lots of areas to improve.” Carolyn commented on Jane Harding’s strength at GD. Jane won best player for Balaklava. Lauren Michael was also noted for her drive and Sophie Kupke for reading the play at WD. Hummocks coach, Sam Nicholls was extremely pleased with her team’s defensive pressure. “Balak couldn’t penetrate the circle into their goalies which allowed us to get a lot of touches.” Indeed, Balaklava were kept to just 20 goals and only shot two in the third quarter. “Mel Moulds has been growing in confidence each week and I thought she was extremely strong with her rebounds yesterday,” commented Sam. Sam escaped the GS third for the first time in years and had a run at GA, picking up best player for her effort. Goal defender, Bonnie Nicholls won the Anzac award for the game. Quarter scores (Hummocks – Balaklava): first 8-4, second 19-13, third 34-15, final 48-20.

Golf Balaklava

After 24.0ml from Huey and blessed with a howling 40 knot nor’westerly, the greensward welcomed 22 sturdy souls for a Stroke stoush last Saturday, who sought fame and glory in the form of the Bakers’ Springs Wines Trophy. This was also the qualifying round for both the President’s and Captain’s Trophies. Suffice it to say that Wild Bill Lokan played out of his skin to scalp the A graders with his score of 80/71, which also won him the Bakers’ Springs goodies. Mighty Merv Hameister (86/73) hamstrung his way into second place, while young Willum Parkin sauntered into third with an effortless 81/78. Claiming that they had elected not to “podium” due to their steadfast embrace of existentialism were P. Thompson (90/82), D. Taylor (98/85) and a somewhat wayward M. Loy (100/89). The B grade was humbled by the superhuman efforts of Wayne “The Nurgler” Nagle (87/73) - that’s right housewives, “Wayne Nagle” lasts the whole day through, so buy “Wayne Nagle” today - available from all leading army surplus stores. John Curnow (92/74) ploughed his way into second place leaving the dreaded Ginja Ninja, Dave Rodgers (96/75), to claim third spot. Then came J. Michael (95/76), G. Sonntag (97/78), W. Berry (95/79), Patricia Anderson (96/80), G. Leo (DNF) and beating a hasty retreat back into his beloved C grade, A. Henstridge (102/82). Forming the pantheon of C grade aspirations was the triumphant triumvirate of Messrs. Ian (or “Jim”, if you meet him in the shearing shed) Bastion (100/73), Detective

24 www.plainsproducer.com.au

Dean Trickett (98/75) and Digby “Plumb Bob” Addison (101/79). Left to stumble about in the rubble of pantheons past were M. Bell (112/82), Les Pearson (118/91), that blast from the past Bruce Fremantle (120/96) and the coolest dude of them all, G. Anderson (125/97). Birdies were achieved by Wayne “All Day” Nagle on both the 8th and 10th, Bill Lokan (10th) and Digby Addison (4th?). Nearest The Pins were held by John Curnow (3rd), Wayne “All Day” Nagle (8th), Wild Bill Lokan (10th and 15th) and young Willum Parkin for his second shot onto the 17th. Golfer of the Winter points therefore went to Bill Lokan (6), Merv Hameister (5), Wayne Nagle (4), Ian Bastian (3), John Curnow (2) and the rest of we muppets, one each. Those who passed muster for the President’s Trophy round were Bill Lokan, Merv Hameister, Wayne Nagle, Ian Bastian, John Curnow, David Rodgers, Dean Trickett and John Michael. To spar for the Captain’s Trophy will be Bill Parkin, Greg Sonntag, Bill Berry, Digby Addison, Peter Thompson, Austin Henstridge, Martyn Bell and Doug Taylor. Both these rounds must begin on Saturday May 11. This weekend we will use a Stableford stoush to determine just who will win the Goldney Welding Trophy, while also starting this year’s Split Sixes side-bar competition. Martyn Bell will apply lit matches to the toes of any slow starters, while Graham “Emu” Ackland will apply all manner of salves and unctions to those who manage to limp all the way back to the 19th.

players were confronted with a gusty, uncomfortable day for golf and the wind did not keep the flies away. Scores showed the average for the day was five strokes more than usual, as players struggled in the conditions. The top three players in the A Grade have been in contention week after week, and showed again why. Robert Hogg +1 won from Gary Payne, also +1, and Stuart Grigg square with the card. It was the same in B Grade with John Ball +2, the best score of the day winning from John Boon +1 (eat my dust Bowden boys) and Hans Linford –1. There were five ladies playing, which was excellent. The winner, with +1, was Kathy Stubing whose business, Adelaide Plains Recycling, also sponsored the day. Julie Holland and Elaine Grigg were the minor placegetters with –4. Kathy also donated three dozen golf balls to the club and gave out recycling bags as prizes for all winners, which was much appreciated. A highlight of the day was an eagle on the Par 5 13th hole by Yogi Frencken – he went home with a Two Wells glass as well as picking up a meat tray.

Rebecca Allchurch, RSMU, throws a strong pass while Grace Redden is watching in the A2 match against Blyth-Snowtown.

Blyth/Snowtown outrun RSMU

A1: Blyth/Snowtown were too good for RSMU in a physical tussle, taking the win 50-33. A fantastic first quarter where an easy ball was hard to come by. Both teams had come to play and defensive pressure was outstanding. B/S up were by three at quarter time. The second saw only 11 goals scored for the term, with turnovers aplenty and the defences having a field day. Great contests all over the court and B/S able to pull away by six. B/S were too strong in the third with fantastic shooting by Lauren and Maggie although Sarah and Ellen remained strong at the ball. B/S were too good in the last but RSMU refused to give up. Jess and Hayley battled until the final whistle. A strong physical game with great skills on display and the final score not reflecting the standard of play. B/S will definitely be the benchmark and we will need to lift to compete next round. Congratulations to Sarah Noack for winning the ANZAC medal for 2013. A2: RSMU just missed out on a win in a close battle, scoring 30 goals to Blyth/ Snowtown’s 35. Blyth Snowtown got off to a great start, jumping RSMU early and making the most of their attacking opportunities. RSMU responded with tight centre court pressure in the second quarter, but could only peg back one of the six goals they trailed by. Changes to both teams at the half time break saw a new shooting combination for the Cats that continued to score with great accuracy. Beth, Simone and Katrina all combined well to reward the hard work of their players winning the third quarter. RSMU made further changes at the last break and finished strongly to win the last. Blyth/Snowtown ran out winners by five goals in a tightly contested match. B1: RSMU couldn’t keep up with Blyth/ Snowtown, going down 35-49. The first half of the match was closely fought by both sides coming out even at half time. The B/S defence had a great third quarter controlling the RSMU goalies well. B/S held on in the fourth to come away with a win. B2: Blyth/Snowtown outran the RSMU girls, claiming the victory, 42-36. Both teams started scrappy in the windy conditions, with many turnovers. Great shooting by Chloe McEvoy. Blyth/Snowtown ran over the top in the last quarter, their goal shooting was too good. C1: In a tight tussle, Blyth/Snowtown held on for the win, 36-30. Both teams started out strongly. Blyth/ Snowtown’s Sarah Barr and Shanai Paytner worked well in defence, keeping goalies on their toes and giving opportunities to their

team down the court. RSMU worked very hard down the court with RSMU’s Maddie Dunn shooting well all day in GA. Despite the windy conditions, both teams did very well but Blyth/Snowtown was too good on the day. C2: Another close match, producing the same result as the C1 game! Blyth/Snowtown also took the win here, 36-30. A strong start by both sides. The midcourt played well together and the goalies took us into a nice lead at half time. RSMU were unlucky with injuries in the second half and B/S had caught up by three quarter time. Unfortunately RSMU were unable to hold their lead and lost to B/S by six goals. Great effort by all the girls considering the weather and injuries. 15&U: RSMU grabbed the win in a very close match, RSMU 32 - Blyth/Snowtown 29. A competitive game. RSMU had a strong lead until half time when Blyth Snowtown changed their team. It then became a close match with strong shooting by Clancy. RSMU goalies kept their lead through with a strong midcourt. Our defences got many great intercepts. J1: RSMU were strong out of the blocks, defeating Blyth/Snowtown 26-14. A great start by RSMU, they came out ready to play and were strong in the first quarter all over the court. B/S had a better second quarter, outscoring RSMU, but were still behind at half time. B/S found it hard gong in the third with RSMU increasing the lead with pressure all down the court. The final quarter was fairly even but RSMU already had a comfortable lead. Great games by goalies Hayley Busch (RSMU) and Neve Pratt(Cats). Abby Griffiths (RSMU) had a good game at WD with some good intercepts. A great effort by all girls in such windy conditions. J2: In a fast paced game, RSMU, finishing on 22 goals, were too good for Blyth/ Snowtown, who ended the game with 16. A closely contested fast flowing game with lots of intercepts. RSMU goalies, Abby Nourse and Jessica Sidwell combined well to convert and were strongly supported by centre court player, Ruth Wright. Blyth Snowtown GA, Chloe Nicholls was swift and a strong challenger throughout the game. Great team effort by RSMU. J4: RSMU tried hard against a tall Blyth/ Snowtown team, but couldn’t get ahead. RSMU 3 lost to Blyth Snowtown 9. Excellent shooting by B/S GA Kasey Bigg. The RSMU defence of Chloe Oakley, Rebecca Lockwood and Jess Heath tried hard all match, but B/S were too strong and tall all over the court. Savannah Kernich tried hard all match. Good effort girls.

Bombers conquer reigning premiers A SEVEN-year drought was broken in surprising style on Saturday, when Hamley Bridge handed reigning premiers, Two Wells, its first loss since June last year, ending a 12-match unbeaten run. It was the first time since 2005 the Bombers had beaten the Roosters and they did it with some authority, running out 49-point winners in gusty conditions at Hamley Bridge.

Lee Allmond again missed for the Roosters, while Andrew Hardiman’s knee problem also ruled him out,

Following an early training session on Anzac Day, Two Wells coach, Mark Thomson, said the change in routine brought about a strange mood amongst his players. “I think our attitude played its part but all credit to them, they played four quarters of footy,” Thomson said. “Our delivery into the forward line was not acceptable and we couldn’t link up with our handballs. “They ran the footy and used it cleaner, and also won the stoppages. “They were really good, they ran hard all day and their midfield beat ours.” n Continued page 17 PHOTO: LISA REDPATH
