Lake Bonney regulator to be removed By BRAD PERRY THE State Government is expected to announce the long awaited removal of Lake Bonney’s controversial temporary regulator by the end of this week. Berri Barmera Council Mayor Peter Hunt said the future of the regulator should be known this week after, earlier this month, council recom-

mended to State Water Minister Paul Caica the regulator must be removed immediately. Mr Hunt could not confirm when the announcement would be made, but the Riverland Weekly understands the removal is imminent. “It has been a long process,” he said. “I’m expecting an announcement to be made by the minister this

week. “It may be a decision he will make in Cabinet.” With members of the Barmera community group urging the removal of the temporary Napper’s Bridge structure at a public meeting and rally recently, it is expected Minister Caica will accept the recommendation from council and remove the regulator. ■ Continued Page 3

Locusts to hit parks and gardens By BRAD PERRY RIVERLAND towns and gardens will be invaded in coming weeks as adult locusts take flight. Biosecurity SA Incident Controller Michael McManus said aerial spraying continues in the Riverland and Mallee as farmers begin to harvest. The locusts are expected to look for greener pastures as the cereal crops are reaped, meaning vineyards and gardens are under threat. “You are more likely to start seeing adult locusts moving around throughout the region in the coming couple of weeks,” he said. “At this stage it (aerial spraying) will continue for at least another two weeks and it could be another week after that depending on the scale of hatchings. “We’ve sprayed over 125,000 hectares now and that’s been very effective

in controlling the locust populations. “It’s never going to be an eradication program. “It was a control program to reduce the locust numbers and reduce their ability to swarm.” Mr McManus said there are a percentage of adult locusts that have got through the system and avoided being killed off by chemicals. “There are reports of damage, I wouldn’t say there are many,” he said. “Generally those reports of damage have been around the edges of crops and on crops that still have the last bit of green on the tip of their stem. “Some locusts have been attacking that and knocking the heads off.” Farmers must double check withholding periods on chemicals used to spray locusts with the harvest under way, according to Mr McManus.

EDITORIAL BY

ROB McLEAN

Another challenge for Barmera IF, as predicted, the government announces the removal of the the Napper’s Bridge regulator at Lake Bonney this week, it will be a win for those who have fought a long battle against its presence. It will also provide a measure of goodwill towards a State Government which has been viewed highly suspiciously by many in the region. High river levels have resulted in the river meeting the trigger points at which the government had previously decreed the regulator can be removed. To have ignored those previous commitments to the Barmera community would have been an insult. However, the removal of the regulator does not mean the lake can be forgotten about. Despite differences in opinion on how the lake should be managed, the varying vocal parties must work together now to ensure the lake’s future good health and the revitalisation of the Barmera community. There lies another very important challenge for the relevant parties.

Chemical stocks lows as downy mildew threat grows By BRAD PERRY WITH rain forecast in the Riverland until at least Tuesday, the threat of downy mildew on vineyards has increased and put continued pressure on the current low stocks of chemical supplies to combat the disease. With some local chemical resellers running out of stock used to fight the infection in past weeks, Consolidated Co-operative Wineries viticulturist Andrew Weeks said this weekend poses a big challenge for grapegrowers. “Some of the suppliers have been trying to look after this region I think and they’ve stocked up at the start of the season and they’ve been able to call in supplies from other regions,� he said. “Because there seems to be movement of fungicides across the country, it’s (the supply of chemicals) really a situation that changes all the time. “From a grower’s perspective, if you’ve got any doubts you may need some more chemical and you’re able to get some, it’s probably better to get that sooner rather than later. “We can only hope we fair fairly well out of this weather and growers are well protected and there isn’t such a surge in demand because it is probable that chemicals will be hard to get. “There may be some diseases flare up and some growers may be trying to get hold of, in particular, metalaxyl based products, which are in short supply across the coun-

try at the moment.� While Mr Weeks described the downy mildew threat in the region as being at “a bit of a crossroads�, he urged growers to remain aware of the devastation the disease can cause. “It’s really variable across the region,� he said. “Some growers have got probably significant problems, others, at least at this stage, appear to have escaped relatively unscathed.� “By and large, growers who have dealt with that problem and have applied post infection fungacides and done well, appear to have arrested the infection at this stage, so it’s sort of in a holding pattern. “What’s going to determine the situation is this weather coming in the next few days.� Mr Weeks said late winegrape varieties which are still flowering are vulnerable to downy mildew. “It’s very difficult to protect and cover flower clusters and that can invade flowers and cause dying off of the flower cluster and then you end up with a bunch that doesn’t form properly or is completely wiped out,� he said. “What we are hoping is growers can control their infection and that they can ride it through.� Landmark Riverland branch manager Kieran Christian confirmed the company had sufficient stock of downy mildew chemicals prior to recent rainfall events but had sold out. However, the company now has more chemical stock in store to battle the disease.

High water levels and spirits for annual Mighty River Run By CALLUM TRIFONOFF THE Murray River has never had a higher water level for the Novita Mighty River Run to take place on. The river conditions only added to the enjoyment of the River Run, which was the brainwave of Channel Seven News presenter John Riddell and Mix 102.3’s Jason Carter and started in Loxton on Monday. The higher waters were noted by both Riddell and Carter, who believe it is fantastic for the region. “Well, this is our fourth (River Run) and I’ve got to say, the first thing we noticed was the high water and it’s great to see because the Riverland has been through a hell of a time with the drought,� Riddell said. “The water was always there, there was always going to be water between the locks, it was just a bit low down the stream. “For the last few years, there’s been virtually no flow (as well) and now it is running at three or four knots and it’s great to see.� Well known media performers, Riddell and Carter both said the run gets better and better

Services, which provides essential therapy, equipment and family support to over 1300 children. “We’ve made $100,000 for Novita and that’s the thrill when you meet the kids, you know that the money is going to help make their lives better,� he said. Carter added the region is being promoted

to listeners via his daily reports to his Adelaide radio program. The run attracted several other South Australian identities, including former Riverlander and four-time Port Adelaide Magarey Medallist Russell Ebert and long time Adelaide Oval curator Les Burdett.

Farmers optimistic as harvest rolls on

FARMERS across the Riverland and Mallee have been working overtime in the past week in a bid to get as much grain in storage before rains, which are expected to remain until at least Tuesday, arrived yesterday. Despite recent heavy rainfall, dryland farmers are predicting this year’s yields to at least double 2009’s, while some farmers have declared this season may be the best ever seen in the region. Most farmers have begun harvesting later than normal thanks to recent downpours but with bumper crops, all are staying optimistic. Waikerie farmer Alan Buckley said the crops are looking the best they have for many years. “In 2001 we thought we had pretty good crops and from what I’ve seen (this year), our oat and hay cut has been way better than 2001,” he said.

“It could be around three times last year’s production.” Mr Buckley said continued rains could put a dampener on the current harvest outlook and remains the main challenge for farmers in the region. “If we get anymore rain from here in, what started out as being a really fantastic opportunity after four droughts, may evaporate pretty quickly if we get sprouted grain,” he said. “The only preparation you can do is get as much harvested as you can (before the rain).” With family farms in Mantung and Naidia, Wunkar farmer Jeff Evans said he has reaped oats and barley but despite being delayed by the wet weather, is confident of an outstanding harvest. “It’s getting very close to, if not the best (ever harvest), I’d say,” he said. “Last year we got about

The 21 year old, pictured right, from Bristol (pictued right) is currently in the Riverland working on the harvest for Alawoona and Loxton growers John Gladigau and Robin Schaefer and is pleased to have seen less rain and more sun so far, although that may change for the next five days.

Katter acknowledges efficiency

By BRAD PERRY

ARMED with his trademark hat, Independent MP Bob Katter toured the Riverland and the Lower Lakes last week joining calls for the Murray Darling Basin Authority to take South Australia’s water efficient history into account in the proposed basin plan. On invitation from South Australian Independent Senator Nick Xenophon, Mr Katter met with local community and industry members and visited Cooltong irrigator Mick Punturiero’s property, leaving with a clear message. “There is no doubt that the argument, on the basis of farms I saw this morning, is a very powerful one,” he said. “You’ve already done your water saving and the other people haven’t done their water saving and that should be acknowledged in any form of buybacks or

whatever actions the government is going to take. “If the farmers were given support to do the sort of things that Mick Punturiero over here I saw has already done...then that in itself would put another million megalitres down the river. “Tensiometer in the ground, maximum use of moisture in the soil, scientific analysis of it all before it was undertaken, that’s as good as you get and 80 per cent of Australia would not be even close to where Mick is. “So those people deserve some sort of credit for what they’ve done and should get it.” The Murray Darling Basin plan was not the only issue on the minds of the two independents with Mr Xenephon continuing his push for the truth in country of origin labelling. “The time has come to properly label our foods’

country of origin because at the moment, made in Australia doesn’t mean that at all,” Mr Xenophon said. “You could have 90 per cent Brazilian concentrate but because the packaging and the cardboard is made here, then it qualifies as made in Australia under the stupid rules we have now and Bob is passionate about that. “If you pass off foreign foods as Aussie foods then Australian farmers lose their jobs and I think Bob Katter has seen the devastation of poor policies.” Mr Katter warned that Australia could turn into a huge importer of food if the current trend continues. “I did not agree with the report that came out two weeks ago saying we are a net importer of food now but we will be in five years time,” he said. “We will live in a country that will no longer feed itself,

that is a disgrace. “Nick and myself and the other cross benchers, as we refer to them now, will be looking at legislation and I think I can safely say we will look at a united front in the new year and it will be a very powerful united front.” Mr Katter and Mr Xeno-

phon also announced they will introduce legislation in February next year to deal with managed investment schemes. “If super rich people in Australia want to not pay tax then they can find some other way of doing it without destroying our livelihoods,” Mr Katter said.

Regulator removal now?

■ EXPECTED: In the coming days, State Water Minister Paul Caica is expected to make a decision on the future of the regulator at Lake Bonney. ■ From Page 1 Mr Hunt said the time to remove the structure is now. “Water’s coming down, the Barmera community are 98 per cent (in favour) to have the regulator removed, it’s passed all the trigger points that was stipulated by the government and we just think now is the time to just open the regulator up and then we can still continue on with the long term management plan,” he said. The future of the Lake Bonney Management Committee will be determined at a council meeting next month. The Berri Barmera Council is also considering appointing a Barmera Town Beautification Committee at next month’s meeting and upgrades to the foreshore will be addressed under that group. “You look along the lakefront now, it’s looking good and we will continue to upgrade around the foreshore,” Mr Hunt said. Mr Hunt said previous designs such as the Lake Bonney Masterplan could be looked at by the committee. At Tuesday night’s council meeting, Rhonda Centofanti was appointed deputy mayor, while Mike Fuller and Michelle Campbell joined the Regional Waste Management Committee and the Audit Committee appointed independent chair John Camrie, Mr Fuller, Bruce Richardson and Trevor Chapple.

A double dose of Riverland Christmas festivities

By CALLUM TRIFONOFF

THE Riverland will see a double delight of Christmas celebrations this week, with the Waikerie Christmas Pageant and Loxton Lights Up taking place on the same weekend. Both will see a variety of entertainment, with the major drawcards making their first appearances at the respective shows.

I don’t know what he expected me to do but, he didn’t really want me to follow that path and so I said, “I think I’ll start at the shop” (we called H.S. Coombes premises ‘the shop’)... At that point in 1957 I started as the boy weighing potatoes and sugar and washing bottles for vinegar and all that sort of thing. Bronte Coombe

Clark’s council career honoured

By ROB McLEAN

ANYONE who has spent any time in Riverland local government circles over the past 30 years most likely would have dealt with George Clark. Mr Clark, until earlier this year, was a Loxton Waikerie councillor and during that time was respected for his considered approach to the many debates and issues that cropped up in what can sometimes be a heated forum. The Clark family is famous within the region for its business interests, which include supermarkets, property and horticulture production. Along with his own business involvement across the various towns in the Riverland, Mr Clark was also interested in the development of the region and was first elected to the Loxton Council in 1979. By 1997 the Loxton Council had merged with Waikerie Council, forming a broad local government area that at times seemed at odds with each other in a marriage of convenience. According to a former fellow councillor, Mr Clark’s broad interests, networks and regional view proved a good circuit breaker at times when debate occasionally became heated between elected members from either end of the stretched Loxton Waikerie Council area.

He was integral in ensuring the merger worked. Due to ill health, Mr Clark resigned from council earlier this year and a valedictory afternoon tea is to be held tomorrow to honour his community service. Former Loxton Waikerie Mayor Jan Cass worked closely with Mr Clark over many years

strong networking to occur. At times his business involvement saw his impartiality questioned. In late 2002, the Loxton Waikerie Council applied to deregulate shopping hours within the district. At the time it was an emotional issue, with the Loxton Chamber of Commerce, in

■ SERVICE: Long serving Loxton Waikerie Councillor George Clark will be honoured with a valedictory afternoon tea today.

While his business interests in the community were prominent, Mrs Cass said Mr Clark was careful not to infringe upon debate that may involve any of his interests. “He was always very careful to leave the chamber whenever we were making decisions about East Terrace and the business centre, even though he often didn’t need to,” she said. Current Loxton Waikerie chief executive officer Peter Ackland has worked closely with Mr Clark since he took over the role in 2004 and he described him as having statesmanlike qualities that were highly beneficial in times of heated debate. “In terms of his statesmanship and experience, he provided advice that was timely and he did not necessarily get caught up in the emotion of it all,” Mr Ackland said. Throughout his time in council, Mr Clark was passionate about occupational health and safety, while he was also heavily involved in council committees, including the Loxton Riverfront Development Committee. “It was at times like that that his business acumen came to the fore,” Mr Ackland said. Mr Clark’s valedictory afternoon tea will be held tomorrow (between 3 and 5pm) at the Loxton Waikerie Council Chambers in Loxton.

and described him as a strong contributor. “I always found George was a great sounding board,” Mrs Cass said. “He was a very sound thinker.” Where Mr Clark came to the fore was in negotiations with businesses the council courted, his strong relationships across various industries providing opportunity for

particular, vocal during the process. The debate and consultation process took some time to conclude and during the application process a complaint was laid against Mr Clark, alleging a conflict of interest, further delaying the passing of the bill. In April 2003, Mr Clark was cleared of any wrongdoing, paving the way for the changes to take place.

Southern Mallee seeks councillors By BRAD PERRY DESPITE South Australia’s local government elections being over, the Southern Mallee District Council has not fulfilled the statutory requirement to have nine elected members, requiring three more councillors to operate legally. Council chief executive officer Rod Ralph said it will seek nominations early in the new year and believes council will have no trouble filling the vacant positions. “Because we weren’t able to achieve that through the normal nomination process...we will be, from January, seeking further nominations to fill those vacancies,” he said. “It has been a struggle but we have had a fair bit of publicity and it is the case there has been a fair deal of interest shown by those who perhaps hadn’t previously thought about going onto council and are now putting their hand up and saying ‘when can we nominate?’ “I don’t believe we will have any difficulty

in filling those three vacancies this time around.” Those voted into a new term with the Southern Mallee District Council include Mayor Gordon Hancock, Jeffrey Nickolls, Allan Dunsford, Neville Pfeiffer, Robert Sexton and Brian Toogood. In other local government elections, Karoonda East Murray Council elected Kevin Burdett as mayor and councillors Colin Zadow, Yvonne Smith, Margaret Size, Caroline Phillips, Trevor Kerley and John Wooldridge. Meanwhile, the newly elected Mid Murray Council is made up of mayor Dave Burgess, and councillors Jeff Howie, Peter Milsom, Jeff Hall, Inez Bormann, Mardi Jennings, Randell Ward, Kerry Yeates, Peter Raison, Brian Taylor, Kevin Myers, David Peake and Ken Sayers. A mayor and eight councillors have been elected in the Berri Barmera and Renmark Paringa Councils, while 10 councillors and a mayor were elected at Loxton Waikerie Council.

AND ANOTHER THING...

Dean’s a contributor

By CALLUM TRIFONOFF

■ HELPING out in the community is part of what makes Dean Barnett tick and he was recently rewarded for this devotion by winning the Youth Award at the Advantage SA awards. An enthusiastic local, Dean is also vice chair of the Berri Barmera Youth and Council Unite Committee, a member of the Barmera Rotary Club and was on the committee for the Relay for Life. As well as that, he is an ambassador for White Ribbon Day, combining all that with his TAFE studies, for which he is pleased to say, he has handed in his last assignment. Dean said he was “ecstatic” when it was announced he had won the Youth Award at the 11th Annual 2010 Advantage SA Regional Awards at Renmark. “Oh, it was certainly nerve wracking as it was the last category to be read out,” he said.

“It was just surreal to win, I kept thinking to myself ‘is this real?’” Dean also spoke of his experience in being named Young Australian Citizen of the Year at the Australia Day Council Awards in Berri, on Australia Day. “It was amazing to get that,” he said. “It was less of a surprise because they gave you notice but to go up there and speak in front of 350 people was amazing, a bit scary too.” Barmera Rotary Club president Paul Ivanovic said Dean is an active part of the club, which is fantastic for someone of his age. “His awards show he’s involved with the community,” Mr Ivanovic said. “Rotary tends to be for middle aged and older people and to have someone like Dean in his twenties at our club helps us see things from younger people’s view.

A good night at Renmark school ■ RENMARK Primary School held its 2010 Let’s Celebrate Concert last week and it seems a good time was had by all. The night began with a dinner cooked and served by the school’s fundraising committee and was

followed by a concert which featured a variety of entertainment. Among the special performances were appearances by the school’s choir, jump rope team and Greek dance troupe. It sounds like a lot of fun!

Shindig a top fundraiser ■ THE success of the recent Monash Shindig has been well documented and now the financials are in. And what a result! This year, the event raised $2796 which will be shared between the hall committee, St Oswald’s Church and the Monash CFS. Also on the night, the CFS managed to raised $1260 through drink sales. A fantastic all round effort and a big congratulations goes to the hall committee’s treasurer Ali Halupka and all of the other volunteers involved for making it happen.

Lions Xmas lunch ■ PREPARATIONS are now well under way for the Mid Murray Lions Annual Senior Citizens Christmas Lunch to be held on Sunday, December 5, at the Nildottie Hall. If you, or any of your elderly friends or acquaintances, would liker to participate,

please phone Tony (8570 1068), for Swan Reach/Nildottie, Geoff (8564 5031), for Cambrai, or Leigh (8564 5224), for Sedan, to reserve a place. The lunch is free and, thanks to a magnificent grant by Mid Murray Council, a free air conditioned coach from Mid Murray Tours will depart Cambrai Hall at 10am passing through Sedan and Swan Reach. In keeping with the spirit of Christmas cheer, there will be raffles and prizes, and the Old Time Dance Group and the G4 Youth Band will be performing.

Anzac honours ■ CONGRATULATIONS go to Loxton High School students Nick Falcinella and Edward James who have been selected to take part in next year’s SA schools visit to the Western Front for Anzac Day commemorations.

The students continue a strong tradition of LHS teenagers paying their respects to the Anzac tradition. They will visit the battlefields in Belgium and France, seeing firsthand where Australian servicemen and women fought.

Nominations extended ■ RENMARK Paringa Council has extended its Australia Day award nominations deadline until Monday. If you can think of someone who deserves to be nominated for any of the awards on offer, don’t hold back, nominate someone. The awards recognise individuals and organisations that have made a noteworthy contribution during the current year, or over a number of years. Contact the council for more information.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Transparency call

Waste of resources

ENVIRONMENTAL aims of the proposed MDBA Basin Plan, include ensuring bankfill/floodplain inundation and the ‘export’ of salt through the River Murray mouth. The latest, higher than normal river flow rates, have not achieved the river height levels, as compared to that which occurred prior to 1990. In SA, is this flood minimisation a ‘management’ measure, designed to minimise/prevent flooding to holiday shack areas, utilised perhaps by Adelaide based voters/’greenies’ from Morgan to the mouth? If the environmental aims include to ‘export’ salt, why then is the intercepted saline groundwater still being pumped out to disposal basins, such as Stockyard Plain, where the dumped salt is reinfiltrating into the underground aquifers? An MDBA Basin Plan may not achieve its desired stated objectives, with the various states ‘managing’/ implementing the plan. There must be complete transparency of the basin plan, including SA management/implementation. Previously, and now, there is still a lack of transparency, as regards SA water management.

I WOULD like to register my vote for the Burning Question (Riverland Weekly, November 18). Should defeated mayoral candidates be entitled to remain in the running for a councillor’s role? Yes. It is a waste of resources and expertise to see these people go even though they will probably remain very involved in the community.

Caica condemned FAILURE by city-centric governments to protect primary producers now has Australia unable to feed itself. Minister Burke recently dismissed the Riverland in a question time answer he gave as “having no manufacturers�. Previous governments’ policies ruined our industries, now the present government blames us. Murray Darling Basin Authority has ransomed irrigation farmers with the burden of water cuts; all that expensive consultation and four volumes to promote the easy solution? When the government ‘unbundled’ water licences i.e. separated water allocations from irrigation land, they said it was like money in the bank. They said we could take our water licence to the bank and borrow against it. Then they reduced our allocation under drought conditions to a ‘useable water’, (two per cent once) and we could ‘lease’ in ‘useable’ water from upstream irrigators to sustain our irrigation farming en-

Have your say about the issues that affect you. terprise, (expensive) that was added to our ‘useable water’ bank at the irrigation trust; then regular irrigation trusts’ water usage charges were applied. Later, carryover of unused ‘useable water’ from one water year to the next was introduced. Now state entitlement caps mean we risk losing water carryover next year.

That scheme would turn some of that water, through a hydro electric scheme, back over the mountains into the Murray Darling River system. But city-centric Water Minister Caica, has no constituents’ connection to irrigation farming and is quite disconnected to Riverlanders. Minister Caica stands condemned, along with all Australian parliamentarians that Australia’s food security is now at the mercy of foreigners.

It is a waste of resources and expertise to see these people go.

Jeanette Staehr, Barmera

Oversight AT THE meeting of the Southern Mallee District Council on November 17, a motion was passed to acknowledge Cr Corey Blacksell’s and Cr Anne Angel’s contributions to council and that all retiring councillors be presented with a certificate for their services to council, or words to that effect. Cr Blacksell has been a councillor for around two and a half years. During that time he has saved the council many hundred of thousand of dollars of debt because of his belief that council should have a balanced budget each year. He has brought many ideas to council during this time and new depth to the discussions of motions before council. At a presentation evening held

a short time ago, the two councillors who had held the position of mayor were each presented with a certificate from the council. At the evening, a few belated words were said about Cr Blacksell, with no certificate being presented to him. At the council meeting, the councillor who organised the evening said it was to acknowledge the two councillors’ mayoral terms. He gave no justifiable reason for making the decision to hold a presentation evening that excluded one retiring councillor. Most of the council members who were at the council meeting said they read the invitation and believed it was for all retiring members and conceded it was in poor taste that not all the retiring members had received a certificate from council. One councillor said Cr Blacksell had done more work than he had done in his 10 years on council. The motion has now been passed to ensure this situation does not arise again. It will be interesting to see the level of input to council from the councillor who organised the evening. I guess this type of behavior could be the reason there were no new people nominating to fill the three vacancies of this election.

What worked for us in drought years will work against us in flood years. So why aren’t they amending the 2007 Water Act? Why is there no compensation for the loss of allocation and for loss of carryover of water? Why aren’t upstream irrigation trusts and irrigators required to upgrade their delivery systems like the Riverland? Why are there no new dams proposed?

Environment & Heritage

MATTERS

Controlling locusts in our conservation parks LOCUSTS are a native species and are an important part of the food chain for other native wildlife. When they reach plague proportions, like they did earlier this year, they need to be controlled to ensure our agriculture and horticulture are protected. Biosecurity SA is undertaking this huge task and has been working closely with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) on areas which need to be protected from spraying. Our parks, native vegetation heritage agreements and environmentally sensitive sites are being carefully considered before spraying is undertaken. Waterways and wetlands need

Mallee’s top crops impress

■ INSPECTING: Gary Cockshell and Andrew Cass (above) inspect a top quality wheat crop during the Brown’s Well crop competition, while (inset) Loxton farmer Robin Schaefer is almost lost in a stunning sized crop.

MALLEE farmers showed off their stunning crops at the annual Brown’s Well Ag Bureau Crop Competition recently, with an almost record attendance on hand. The competition, which has been running for more than four decades, this year involved eight crops over a 180 kilometre radius which was judged by those present, including farmers, bankers, machinery dealers, grain marketers and resellers. Points were awarded based on the criteria of apparent yield, freedom from weeds and disease, agronomic achievement and workmanship. More than 60 people, one of the biggest ever crowds for the event, witnessed potentially outstanding estimated yields in what were described as bumper crops. Winners for the event were Jeff and Glen Hampel’s property for the estimated yield category, while Jeff also took out the best gross margin and Andrew Cass was judged the most efficient water user.

■ HAPPY: More than 60 people attended the crop competition in the Brown’s Well district recently (above and below), judging and enjoying the day.

Riverland gardeners to see sprinklers making a comeback next month By Trevor Sluggett, River Rain Irrigation, Renmark. RIVERLAND gardeners can again use sprinklers to keep their gardens alive from next Wednesday, December 1. For a few years sprinklers have not been an option for most gardeners due to domestic water restrictions. Good spring rains have greened up many previously dead gardens,

so the easing of water restrictions will allow many Riverland gardens to be kept green over summer.

Repair sprinkler systems ■ Riverlanders know better than most gardeners that river water is precious and shouldn’t be wasted. Gardeners will need to carry out repairs when turning on sprinkler sys-

tems that have not been used for a long time. Water will be wasted unless faulty sprinklers are repaired or replaced, piping leaks repaired, sprinkler arc or throw adjusted and sprinklers raised or shifted if squirting into shrubbery.

for lawns, however, drip systems are generally the best option for garden beds. Hence the conversion of gardens to drip irigation should continue, even with the relaxing of water restrictions.

Use drippers

Continue water saving measures

■ Pop up sprinkler systems are still a good option

■ Gardeners should continue to adopt water sav-

ing measures. High on the list of practical measures to save water is the use of a garden irrigation controller or tap timers to turn on irrigation only when required and only for the time required. Manual irrigation just does not work, as most people forget to turn on the water or turn it off, which means stressed plants and waste water.

Irrigation shops can help ■ Many irrigation shops across the Riverland are open on Saturday mornings, convenient for gardeners to work out what they need to get the garden irrigation system up to scratch for summer.

BERRI BARMERA LOCAL ACTION PLANNING Committee Update

From the Project . . . k s e D ’s r e g a n a M W

elcome to the last BBLAP feature for 2010 and isn’t it fantastic to finally see some flow in the River? We can now only keep our fingers crossed, with storage levels across the basin above average, that another good year of rainfall in 2011 will lead to some form of flooding event in spring next year. Although the flow is being mitigated somewhat to keep most of the water instream, all of our pool-level wetlands are now full or filling and there is water in some places which hasn’t been seen for 10 years. For those who haven’t been to Katarapko Creek lately, do yourself a favour and head out for a drive around the Park. With Kararapko Weir underwater and parts of The Splash in flood, it’s well worth the look. The draft guide to the Murray Darling Basin Plan has finally been released and is causing controversy across the basin. Time is running out to provide input into this stage of the consultation but there will be a new round of consultation on the final copy of the guide next year, before the process of consultation on the plan itself commences. The BBLAP Committee in conjunction with the Conservation Council of SA and the Murray Darling Basin Authority ran a small but successful workshop on the environmental aspects of the Plan last week. Speaking of controversy, the Lake Bonney regulator continues to cause more than a slight ripple around Barmera and beyond. The Berri Barmera Council has made a decision to request its immediate removal and hopefully a final decision from the Minister will be made shortly, so that the community can move forward one way or the other. By the time this goes to print, the carp cages should have been removed. We will have to wait to see whether the new Berri Barmera Council maintains the Lake Bonney Management Committee and if funding is provided to continue investigation into thebest long term ecological management of the lake. One negative we have recently received is that funding has not been continued for the Riverland community weed mapping and training project. Thank you to those of you that expressed an interest in this project, we will make a decision early next year to see what we will now do with the training packages that have been developed. In closing, I would like to wish you all a safe and happy upcoming festive season, and, if not before, see you all in 2011, when I will hopefully be able to announce a couple of new exciting projects.

Fish and frog surveys IN LATE October fish and frog surveys were While undertaking fish surveys using fyke undertaken at Spectacle Lakes and Loveday nets, several southern bell frogs, one short and several long necked turtles, an abunLagoons wetland complexes. dance of macroinvertebrates, shrimp and Frog species detected were: thousands of tadpoles were caught. • Eastern sign-bearing frog (crinia parainsignifera) • Southern bell frog (Litoria raniformis) Nationally vulnerable • Peron’s tree frog (Litoria peronii) • Eastern Banjo frog (Limnodynastes dumeriili ) • Spotted grass frog (Limnodynastes tasmaniensis) • Long-thumbed frog (Limnodynastes fletcheri)

■ SPECIES: A southern bell frog and (right) longnecked turtle caught during fish monitoring.

New website TODAY marks the official launch of the new Berri Barmera LAP website. We have spent the past few months preparing content and updating information, in order to make our new site as user-friendly as possible, whilst much easier to keep up to date than the old site. We still have a little way to go before it is all fully completed, so keep an eye on it over the next couple of months. We would also love to hear any feedback as to other features or information you would like to see incorporated. The website address has not changed, and can be found at (below).

Fish species caught were: Alien Species • Mosquitofish (Gambusia holbrooki) • Goldfish (Carassius auratus) • Carp (Cyprinus carpio)

Native Species • Carp gudgeons (Hypseleotris sp.) • Flat-headed gudgeon (Philypnodon grandiceps) • Silver perch (Bidyanus bidyanus) • Murray hardyhead (Craterocephalus fluviatillis) • Australian smelt (Retropinna semoni) • Bony bream (Nematalosa erebi)

Last Chance to get your hands dirty this year The last round of wetland monitoring for 2011 is happening over the next couple of weeks. • Overland Corner – Saturday, December 4, at 9:30am • Martin’s Bend – Sunday, December 5, at 9am •Spectacle Lakes – Sunday, December 12, at 9am

New committee members

‘Til Next Time…….

Paul Stribley

IF YOU would like to come and help us collect data relating to water quality, vegetation health and birds, and see wetlands which are full of water and life, please contact Paul or Sam at the office. We would love to see you out there. Wetland monitoring dates for 2011 will be published in our next feature in February and will also be available from the LAP Office.

FOLLOWING our Annual General Meeting on November 9, I am pleased to report we have two new committee members, Glenys Matthews and Brenton Menzel. Glenys is a teacher at Barmera Primary School, whilst Brenton works as a field officer with Think Water Riverland. The Executive Committee remains unchanged, with Jayme Peltz (chairper-

son), Barry Porter (deputy chair) and Lloyd Wright (treasurer). Other committee members are Bob Clark, Max Kubenk and Lisa Stribley. We would ideally like one or two more people to come on board, so if you have an interest in the environment and can attend one meeting every two months, please feel free to get in touch with me.

Revegetation THIS IS a quick reminder for people who may wish to undertake revegetation works on their properties next year to get in contact with us if you wish to be supplied with free plants and tree guards. We will hopefully have a good supply of tubestock ready for planting in autumn, so the sooner we know people’s requirements the better organised we can be to roll this project out. We are also still looking for volunteers who may wish to assist with propagation and looking after seedlings over the next few months. If you are able to assist, please give Sam a call at the office on 8582 2183.

Loveday basin update ■ FLOWING: Loveday Basin (inset) north and (main picture) south.

LOVEDAY Basin is currently in the process of being filled thanks to the current increase in flows in the river. The northern end of the basin is filling through the northern regulator, whilst the southern end is being filled predominantly from water flowing through from the Mussel Lagoon complex, with an additional trickle of

water flowing down Blackfellow’s Creek. It is the first time in over 10 years that Blackfellow’s Creek has flowed through to the basin, and this should help regenerate an area that not only has been stressed by the drought but was also heavily impacted by the bushfire that went through three

years ago. The Department for Water is still negotiating a long term solution for managing the odour at the northern end of the basin. In the meantime, enough water has been secured (in addition to the current flows) to ensure that there should be no odour impact this summer.

Berri Barmera LAP wetlands bus tour ON SUNDAY, October 10, the Berri Barmera LAP Committee held a successful tour of wetlands within their management area for interested community members. It was an early 8am start as participants piled into the bus, which was driven by the trusty BBLAP project manager Paul Stribley. The tours’ first destination was Martin’s Bend, where the group was shown and informed about the importance of installing water regulating structures to successfully manage wetlands. From there, the tour went on to visit the Katarapko/Eckert Creek anabranch system, which is the location of a demonstration reach for native fish, a project under the Native Fish Strategy of the Murray Darling-Basin Authority. Water levels were well up and flowing freely over the stone weir at Katarapko Creek. - for the first time in many years. This provided a wonderful location to relax and enjoy morning tea with coffee and cake, where the group was joined by Lisa Stribley from the Department for Water who gave an informed discussion on water allocation processes for both irrigators and environmental allocations. A visit to Mussel Lagoons was next, with key points of interest being the effects of fire damage and the subsequent regeneration of Eucalypts, the

growth and abundance of native aquatic vegetation, the stunning carpet of colour of flowering pig face, spotting different wetland bird species and the translocation to the area of an endangered snail Notopala hanleyi. The group then stopped at the Overland Corner Hotel where everyone enjoyed a tasty barbecue cooked lunch underneath the shady trees of the historic hotel’s garden. After a relaxing lunch, the tour proceeded on to visit the wetlands at OC where initiatives such as the River Red Gum Rescue Project were discussed together with weed management, environmental watering regimes and wetland monitoring. Finally the group visited Lake Bonney and viewed the regulator and carp cage at Napper’s Bridge. Paul Stribley gave an informative discussion on the history and management of Lake Bonney, the role of the regulator and how the carp cage works. Tour participants were fortunate in that all wetlands visited were inundated with water (a rare occurrence over the past 10 years), with the surrounding vegetation bursting with growth and colour. Participants commented on their enjoyment of seeing and learning about wetlands that they wouldn’t normally visit and found the day to be fun and informative.

LAST month I witnessed a spectacular natural phenomenon that only happens in arid areas once in a while. The desert was blooming in all its glory. I saw many different plants flowering which I hadn’t seen before. Our iconic state emblem that we all know but so few really see in vast panoramas was out in huge quantities. Captain Charles Sturt would have seen vast areas of ungrazed land covered in like flowers in his travels. If you haven’t worked it out by now, it was Sturt’s desert pea or Swainsona formosus that had me in raptures. Having stopped at a patch of six or so plants on a hillside and taken the obligatory photos along with the “oohs� and “ahhs�, we then kept seeing vast groups of plants, some covering hillsides, some in dense clusters amongst rocks and yet more stretching on to the horizon in all directions in between blue bush and cassias. I’m sure the Sturt pea is one of those plants we get so used to seeing images of both photos and abstract design that our perception of this plant becomes distorted and when seeing them in large numbers in their natural habitat, the experience almost becomes surreal. Mostly their habitat is open and harsh country, subject to frost, sand laden winds, extreme heat, frightening floods and very low average annual rainfall. The harsher and more isolated places in which they grow seems to make a stronger contrast with this seemingly delicate flower. Throw in grazing by rabbits,

BASIL goats, sheep and camels and it is quite surprising they survive at all. In fact, they more than survive, they thrive. On reflection, the Sturt pea doesn’t survive but seems to wait patiently while all the extreme events take place and just now and then when the rains are just at the right time, seed dormancy is broken and within weeks an often dull, gray green landscape is transformed to a heart stopping, breath taking vista worthy of travelling for days over rough terrain just to see. Right now is the time to rekindle those memories of being delighted by scenes in wild places and plant a Sturt pea plant and/or sow Sturt pea seed. All they need is reasonable drainage and a good amount of water to get them going. From seed, all that is required is to soak the seed in warm water for a while and sow direct. After all, if they can grow well in such harsh places, they will surely make a great plant for a Riverland and Mallee garden.

Basil is a member of the mint family and is very similar in appearance. The most popular kind of basil used in cooking is sweet basil but some of the other more widely-known types are clove basil, lemon basil, and cinnamon basil. With so many varieties, it can be difficult to choose. Here are just a few types, with a brief description, to help in your quest for the perfect basil for your savoury dish: • Sweet basil - the best known, it has a scent of clove when fresh. • Genovese basil - has a similar flavour as sweet basil and is almost as popular. • Napolitano basil is favoured by many for pizzas. • Lemon basil - also called "hoary basil", has a lemony smell, like the name implies, but has a sweet taste. • Thai basil - has a scent of licorice with a hint of mint. Purple stems and flowers add beauty and taste to many Thai dishes. • Cinnamon basil - also called Mexican spice basil, has the same compound found in cinnamon which gives it its strong fragrance. • Holy basil - is also known a s 'sacred basil' since it's used in worship in India. • Purple basil-rich and spicy, it has more of is an anise flavour than Genovese or sweet basil.

Fire Safety

DANGER

Prepare. Act. Survive.

Fire danger season W

ARNINGS from local experts have told us that this summer is set up for a potentially hazardous fire danger season. The exiting of fruit blocks and recent rains which have produced increased greenery has fire experts concerned about a heavy fuel load. As a result, it is imperative that local people adhere to the fire safety rules that apply in the Riverland and Murraylands regions. Fire danger season started on November 15 and will run through to April 15. If you wish to start a fire, or burn off during this period, you must contact your local council and gain a permit. The authorised officer is required to assess the permit

Fire Ban Districts in South Australia

application to ensure that: They are satisfied that the lighting and maintaining of the fire is, in all circumstances of the case, justified; and that adequate precautions will be taken to prevent the spread of fire. Once satisfied, the authorised officer will issue you a permit and inform you of a permit number and will subsequently send you a copy of the permit. The conditions that must be complied with are included in the permit. Fire restrictions also apply in most national and conservation parks across the state. Visit www.cfs.sa.gov.au to find out more information in regards to restrictions in parks.

Top 8 hints to save homes 1

UNDERSTAND the environment in which you live - is your house surrounded by, or near, bush, grass or coastal scrub? Do you travel through, or plan to holiday in, bushfireprone areas?

5

CREATE and maintain as much defendable space as possible around your home by managing vegetation, including grass and shrubs.

6

BE AWARE that should you plan to defend your home in accordance with Fire Danger Rating guidelines, you need to be physically capable and mentally prepared.

2

SIT DOWN with your family now and write a Bushfire Survival Plan - your life could depend on it. Download a copy of Your Guide To Preparing For And Surviving The Bushfire Season at www. cfs.sa.gov.au

7

TAKE THE TIME to put together your family's Bushfire Survival Kits, including a Relocation Kit and a Recovery Kit containing the things you'll need to survive in the first 24 to 48 hours after a bushfire. You'll find all the details and fact sheets on the CFS website.

8

LEARN as much as you can about bushfire warnings and safety, ask your local CFS about forthcoming community meetings or alternatively, visit www.cfs.sa.gov.au

3

MAKE sure you understand and are familiar with, the national Fire Danger Ratings and what those ratings mean for your family's Bushfire Survival Plan.

4

PRACTICE your Bushfire Survival Plan with your whole family, including your strategies for dealing with stock or large pets such as horses.

South Australia is divided into 15 fire ban districts. Each district has its own fire danger season dates, so it is important to be aware of which district you live, work or travel in. Your activities may span more than one Fire Ban District and you need to identify and record these districts, so that you can accurately monitor, Fire Danger Seasons, Fire Danger Ratings and Total Fire Bans.

Know your Fire Danger Season The Fire Danger Season (FDS) generally runs from November to April. During the season, restrictions are placed on lighting fires to reduce the chance of bushfires starting. You must apply for a permit to light fires outdoors at this time, unless it is of a type prescribed in the Fire and Emergency Services Act 2005 and Regulations.

SUMMER IS HERE! PREPARE YOUR POOL!

Pool and spa chemicals

HE Riverland has plenty to offer in the summer season and, of course, some of the best parts involve the magnificent Murray River. Why not go wakeboarding, fishing or houseboating down the river, or just soak up the sun by the riverbanks? Canoeing is also a good way to relax and even spot some of the Murray’s wildlife, while for people who want a bit more action, skiing is always a summer favourite. Also on offer, is the ever popular Lake Bonney, where you can go for a swim, a sail, or a nice, summer picnic.

FUN

The lake is becoming increasingly popular for jet skiing, windsurfing and its yacht club runs weekly races which are great to watch from the shore. The lake and its surrounding wetlands are filled with wildlife. A fun, all-year round family activity, but nevertheless, perfect for the summer holidays, is the Monash Adventure Park. With free barbecue access, shady trees and winding creek, you can spend all day having a go at the flying fox, climbing the leaning towers, or trying to work your way out of the maze. Grab a bargain at the

Barmera Main Street Markets on December 5, or at the Berri Farmers Market every Saturday. Food, clothes, jewellery, furniture, books and toys are available in Barmera, while the Farmers Market specialises in fresh and in-season produce. This holiday season, there will be plenty to do, to keep yourself, and the kids, entertained.

HERE are few better summer activities in the Riverland, than going fishing or yabbing in the Murray. If you are looking to hit the river for a quiet fishing day, bear in mind the restrictions that are imposed. Silver perch, catfish and Murray River crayfish are all protected species and must be thrown back after catching them. European carp, redfin and mosquito fish are not native to the Murray and it is an offence to return them to the river, or transport them away from the river alive, if caught. Size and bag limits apply for different species, so make sure you find out the right limits and all of the regulations before you fish by visiting www.southaustralia.com/ Riverland.

HERE is nothing quite like laying under the air conditioning vent and letting the gusts of cool air wash over you at the height of summer. However, keeping your air conditioning on full-time during the summer can be quite harmful for your hip pocket as well as the environment. To get the full effect of your air conditioning, as well as save some money, there are many ways to improve the efficiency of your cooling regime. The best way to keep your home cool is to keep the heat out. If you are lucky enough to have roller blinds, they should be kept down throughout the day. While if you have curtains, venetians or

any other sort of blind, you should keep them closed tight against the sun. It is a well established fact that windows reflect significant amounts of heat and we all know how big the windows are in modern homes. You can also shut off areas of the home which you are not using, stopping heat from flowing throughout the house. The advent of large, flat screen televisions has also seen an increase in heat generated inside of the house. Maybe consider turning off the television during the hottest part of the day, turning it on only when you are watching it. That is good for the environment and your brain!

Turn off lights throughout the house and try not to cook, use microwaves, wash and dry clothes or have showers in the hottest parts of the day, as these activities generate massive amounts of heat, sucking the cool air out of your home. Despite what you may think, keeping your home cool during summer is not always difficult, just using a little commonsense will get you through the toughest of Australian summers. If you have exhausted all of these options and you are still feeling warm, what better excuse is there than to just lie down on the couch, embrace the laziness that heat inspires and relax?

4 passionfruit, halved 2 cups lemonade Method Place pineapple and mango in a food processor or blender. Blend or process until smooth. Remove to a jug. Add passionfruit pulp and lemonade. Stir to combine.

coolair ■ STYLE: Keeping cool in summer can be quite a challenge.

■ BLINDS: Various types of blinds and awnings can be used to keep your house cool during summer.

Variation: For mixed-berry iceblocks, blend or process 500g hulled and chopped strawberries, 250g raspberries and the pulp of four passionfruit until smooth. Stir in lemonade. Follow steps two and three above.

HE summer swimming season had a slow start with some unseasonal spring weather but local pools are all now fully operational. Public swimming pools are found in most of the region’s major towns; Renmark, Berri, Loxton and Waikerie. Each pool has its own opening hours, which will vary from location to location. At Berri, if the predicted daily maximum temperature is under 25 degrees, the pool will be closed for the day. At Loxton, the tipping point is 24 degrees or lower. Renmark and Waikerie have their own rulings, which are available by contacting their managers. To find out operating hours, contact Loxton (8584 7603), Waikerie (8541 2708), Berri (8582 5174) or Renmark (8586 5086) pools. Throughout the summer, local pools will have various learn to swim

classes in operation. Vacswim is an ever popular program, operated by the South Australian Government, which is run at pools throughout the region. The program provides participants with opportunities to develop a range of skills and positive experiences in the areas of water safety, confidence and competence in the water, personal survival activities, emergency procedures and basic swimming stroke improvement. The program is conducted by qualified instructors in a controlled environment, located at school pools, public and private pools, beaches and lakes throughout South Australia. These skills can be of use in public pools, private pools and particularly in our mighty river. For further information on Vacswim, visit the organisation’s website at vacswimsa.com.au

KEEP COOL THIS SUMMER

FEEL GREAT

Fashion & Beauty Keep safe comfortable and cool this summer with a range of great products, making you feel good and look great. As we all know, summer is a time for swimming and you want to be as stylish and as

comfortable as possible when you are enjoying a cool dip in the river or a local pool. Hair and skin care is also vital, for your health and personal appearance, as the sun can be a cruel master when you worship at its altar. Sun block is very important whilst you are enjoying the

beautiful Riverland weather, while moisturisers and replenishing creams can be entirely beneficial following a lovely day out and about. The Riverland is a great place to be during the summer, so make sure you have all of the products to help take advantage of the sunny season.

OLDEN’S design talents will be showcased to the world next month when a showcar is unveiled at the Paris Motor Show. Chevrolet Europe has released the first images of the highly anticipated global model which was designed and built by Holden’s Port Melbourne design studio. The showcar with its sweeping coupe roofline and short overhangs is a precursor to a production model, also designed by Holden, that will be built in several countries, including Australia where it will start production in late 2011. Holden chief designer Richard Ferlazzo said the project had been a significant undertaking for the studio which had spent more than 12 months working with GM designers from around the world developing the hatch variant. “Our brief was to create an alternative body style to the traditional sedan that retained the same dynamic proportions that has made Cruze such a success around the world,” Mr Ferlazzo said. “We are very proud of the result which will be tailored further for the Australian market and given an appearance consistent with the rest of the Holden portfolio next year.” The Holden Design Studio is an important part of General Motors’ global design network, as one of only three facilities in the world with the capability to design and build prototype concept vehicles for exhibitions and international auto shows.

Fairlane right for cruising WHEN your dad’s a mechanic and you grow up around the cars he worked on, it’s understandable you may just develop an interest in them that goes further than a mode of transport to take you from A to B. That’s exactly what happened with Brendan Crocker, of Glossop. As a young boy he watched and learned from his father, often being allowed to help with some of the basic stuff, until in year 11 he did a few weeks’ work experience as a panel beater. This was enjoyable but he preferred the mechanical side and in 1988 began an apprenticeship with Rosenthal’s where he still works today. His first car was an XW Falcon sedan that received the usual big wheels and lowered and noisy exhaust but after a couple years that was moved on and was replaced by an XB Falcon sedan named ‘Pink Bits’ that had received a custom paint job by fellow enthusiast George Wronkowski. Apart from the paint, a set of wheels and being lowered, it was pretty much stock and saw service for a few years until it died. Brendan then decided it was time for a ‘Pink Bits 2’, so he found another XB Falcon sedan and set about

â–  SLICK: Brendan Crocker loves the classic shape of his 1968 ZA Fairlane and enjoys nothing more than to go cruising with his family. a ground up rebuild. The underside was cleaned, reconditioned and painted black, a Ford 302 ci V8 and C4 auto trans were reconditioned and fitted, the interior retrimmed in velour and the outside covered in custom pink paint with rainbow coloured graphics which was again sprayed by George. This was used on rare occasions over the next few years but family, work and houses took precedence, so it gathered more dust than kilometres.

Around 2006 Brendan found he had a little more spare time on his hands and began to contemplate a rebirth of ‘Pink Bits 2’ but he was also on the lookout for a mid 60s Ford as he was particularly keen on the shape and style of the Fairlanes around that era. One day while dreaming and looking at what was around on the internet (as you do), a 1968 ZA Fairlane from Melbourne jumped out and said “buy me�. Within weeks it was back in Glossop awaiting the

original with beige coloured vinyl seats and door trims, black moulded carpet and perforated cream hood lining. The steering wheel and dash are also completely original and Brendan has even had the original AM radio repaired, much to his kids dislike. What no CD player and modern music? The running gear is what Brendan has spent most of his time on and, once again, is all original but reconditioned.

finishing touches before its maiden drive. A very fastidious panel shop owner had undertaken the rebuild but unfortunately for him was not able to complete the project. All the suspension and underside had been stripped, reconditioned and painted black, while on top the panel work had been completed to perfection and covered in many coats of lime frost, an original Ford colour from that era. The interior has been completely restored to

The engine is a 289 ci V8 that’s been mildly modified and the trans is a C4 cruisomatic with a stage two shift kit. This drives through to the borg warner diff and the brakes are the standard disc drum combination, while a dual exhaust gets rid of those cruising gases and provides a nice crisp note. The suspension has been updated with a two inch lowered Pedders sports pack and all bushes have been replaced with nolathane. These old cars have lots of chrome and that influences the final look, so Brendan made sure it was up to scratch and to add that final bit of class, a set of 18� x 7� AWC billet wheels running 235/40 x 18 tyres are fitted all round. Brendan is more than happy with how the Fairlane now looks and drives and, in fact, it was awarded the “Top Contemporary� trophy at the recent Autoexpo in Renmark. “I really love the classic shape and the colour with the billet wheels looks just right,� he said. “It’s not about performance, it’s built for cruising and that’s what I enjoy doing with the family on the occasional nice day for driving. “It’s exactly the way I want it�.

Cars in the news

Cruising in Kenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MGB By BRAD PERRY CRUISING down the highway with the roof down on his 1965 blue MGB, Renmark man Ken Wilkinson is in his element. Describing the feeling of driving the vehicle as being â&#x20AC;&#x153;free as a birdâ&#x20AC;?, Ken is extremely proud of his classic car and rightly so. The MGB was originally purchased by his daughter while she was working in Canberra and after having several problems with the vehicle, Ken decided it was time she drove something a bit more reliable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We said donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy the thing itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Pommy car,â&#x20AC;? Ken laughed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was always having problems with it and something was always breaking on it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the end, I ended up buying her another car and I drove that to Canberra and I just tossed her the keys and said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve traded the MGBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in and then we drove it home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Would you believe we got halfway across the Hay Plains and blew a tyre, no spare and, of course, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just borrow someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spare because they are just on the single spine on the middle.â&#x20AC;? With the car appearing run down, Ken decided he would start from scratch and restore the classic vehicle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was in the shed here for a bit and we sort of looked at it and there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lot done on the paint and the seats were all

Fuel taxes to diminish FUEL taxes will become an increasingly unreliable source of revenue for governments as the supply of oil diminishes and cars become more fuel-efficient, a report warns, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. Transporting Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Future published yesterday by the Association of Consulting Engineers Australia, urges state and federal governments to raise revenue for transport infrastructure from new sources, including levies on employers and taxes on high-value land around transport hubs. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reliance on traditional fuel excise as the key revenue tool is internationally recognised as having limited longevity, with diminishing reserves and increased fuel efficiency curtailing revenues,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; the report said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;An infrastructure funding regime based on fuel taxes has no sustainable future.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

the restoration, Ken has finished and has already had the chance to show of his stunning set of wheels at his nieceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wedding in Adelaide last month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It all went absolutely smooth as a baby all the way to Adelaide and back,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the look of it and just the feeling of driving it with no

worn and I said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;if we are going to have it, we may as well do it upâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? he said. The whole body was sanded back and given a new coat of paint, work was done on the motor with new clutch kits installed and the leather seats were re-trimmed. Six years since he first started

top on.â&#x20AC;? So what will Ken do next with his head turner? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Realistically, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a fun machine for me,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a classic vehicle and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll join the local classic car club and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to do a Bay to Birdwood one year just to say weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done it.â&#x20AC;?

NEARLY nine out of 10 accidents involving cyclists and cars in Australia are the fault of the motorist, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. Research also recommended introducing road rules enforcing safe passing distances for cars. Drivers were at fault in 87 per cent of incidents with cyclists and most did not realise they had behaved in an unsafe manner, according to the Monash University Accident Research Centre and The Amy Gillett Foundation. The three-year study used helmet cameras to determine the main causes of incidents involving cyclists. It found almost 90 per cent of cyclists travelled in a legal way. Conversely, drivers changing lanes and turning left without indicating or looking were the cause of more than 70 per cent of the incidents.

Berri’s state hopes dashed

By CALLUM TRIFONOFF

AFTER a quarter final win over Nairne at Murray Bridge on the weekend, Berri eventually succumbed to Meadows in the Country Twenty20 Champions Cup semi-final, ultimately missing out on playing in the final at Adelaide Oval next year. Despite a brave performance, Berri player Matthew Clifford said

the side had trouble adapting to the hard wicket pitch, as it usually plays on turf. “It wasn’t to our advantage unfortunately, and if (Meadows) had played on turf down here, they would’ve won within five minutes,” Clifford said. “It was trickier for us as, on hard wicket, it bounces differently to turf.” Clifford was proud of his team’s performances at the champi-

onships, despite the loss, which saw Berri hang on until the 18th over before Meadows eventually passed its runs tally. “Danyal Reynolds and ‘Humey‘ (Andrew Hume) batted brilliantly,” he said. “Chris Hughes, Adam Beauchamp and Todd van Dyk also played well. “The boys were a bit disappointed that we didn’t get through, and to play on Adelaide Oval would

have been amazing but we were just proud to be there really. “We can focus on club and twoday cricket now.” The Berri side won a lot of praise for its play and how it looked while playing. “We had a few comments on our coloured clothing,” Clifford said. “People said we looked pretty professional and it’s great to hear those kind of things.”

Clifford believes the experience of playing in a tournament like the Champions Cup, will benefit the side. “It was a great idea to play,” he said. “If you don’t play in carnivals, you don’t get to see what other sides are like, and if you play locally all the time, you don’t have the experience of playing in big competitions.”

Waikerie’s Brad off to Tigerland By CALLUM TRIFONOFF FOLLOWING in the footsteps of Sam Fisher, Byron Schammer and Rhys Stanley, Waikerie footballer Brad Helbig achieved his lifelong dream when he was drafted by the Richmond Tigers in the 2010 AFL Draft with pick number 47 late last week. Helbig, who played one SANFL league game with West Adelaide, and was part of its under 18 side that lost in this year’s grand final to Glenelg, now becomes another Riverlander to make it to the highest football league in the country, the AFL. He made the move from the Riverland to Adelaide in January 2009, to further his football and schooling, and attended Henley High School, a school renowned for producing AFL prospects and its footballing curriculum. With Richmond a team seemingly on the up side of a rebuild, Helbig may see an AFL debut in 2011. His mother, Theresa, said it was fantastic and a dream come true for Helbig to make it to the AFL. “He’s one of those boys who, if he wants to get something done, he’ll get it done, and to play AFL was some-

Photo: SUPPLIED ■ TIGER: Waikerie star Brad Helbig will join the Richmond Tigers in the AFL after being selected at pick number 47 in the National Draft. thing he always wanted to do” Theresa said. “He’s a hard-worker and always wants to achieve his goals.” Theresa said she was confident Helbig had a good chance of getting drafted by a club. “I thought he would, he’s done really well so far,” she said. “Deep down I felt he would, yes.” West Adelaide Riverland talent co-ordinator Allan Brand said Helbig is a versatile talent and a terrific athlete. “Since he’s moved to Adelaide, he caught the AFL

clubs’ eyes,” Brand said. “He can play anywhere; he’ll go down back, up forward and he’ll have a spell on the ball as well.” Brand believes Richmond will be a good home for Helbig as it is a young and developing squad. “They have such a fantastic young list and quite a few number one draft picks,” he said. “They’ll keep pushing the kids through and Brad will be in the mould there. “Damien Hardwick (the Richmond coach) knows how to work with kids so it’s all in front of Brad now and up to him.”

In the swim of things ■ From Page 52 “I think it’s good for all of them (the local swimmers) to aspire to achieve.” Trewren said this season’s program has changed slightly from previous years and is excited about the coming competition. “Everyone is feeling quite positive about it all,” she said. “It is the first time we have run the distance championships on a Friday night. “Normally they are run on a Sunday, so that will be

a challenge doing a distance event swim into the evening because the fact they are distance events tends to make them quite tiring.” Season highlights include the Waikerie Open on January 8, the country championships in Broken Hill from January 13 to 16, the state championships ,held in Adelaide, on January 20 to 24, the Loxton Open on February 5, the Loxton Open Water Swim on February 6, the Renmark Open on February 19 and 20, the Riverland Long Distance Championships on

Second cricket carnival really is serious business

■ MURRAY Districts Barrier organiser Neil Weinert will have his thinking cap on at this stage as he works on getting a squad together to represent the zone at the annual SA Cricket Association Country Carnival in Adelaide in early 2011. While he may not approach a similar task with quite the same urgency, Berri Cricket Club’s Matthew ‘Doc’ Clifford will also be working on finding a team for the ‘second carnival’ organised by the Country Carnival Cricket Association and also held in Adelaide following the SACA event. The second carnival is often given some uncomplimentary titles but after stumbling across some records of an event of over 80 years duration, these titles would have to be disrespectful to some excellent cricket and individual players from that competition. Sure the CCCA tournament has been through some lean times. It involved SA teams in a very competitive climate in 1949 but was down to only 10 in 1993 and 2002. Today though, the number is up around 20 and if you talk to players that have taken part recently, they will assure you the standard and competition is pretty serious. Weinert, of course, is limited to choosing players from within his zone.

Clifford is not restricted and can ‘recruit’ from outside the region. Personally, I can relate to that. Around the late 1950s, early 60s, I played in a few carnivals for North East Mallee. There were a lot of teams then too and the competition was serious stuff, although, I must admit our group played pretty well socially as we went. I have some wonderful memories, some vivid, some a bit hazy of those years and I recall we always seemed to perform better in the first week of the then fortnight long event. Fatigue? Then, when North East did not

enter a side I remember going along to watch a match on the opening day of the carnival and having my togs in the car, getting a game with a team of strangers – I think we went okay as we received an award. Pewter mugs? Statistics reveal a lot of really good players from within our region played for foreign territory over the years. The well known Curtis brothers from Caliph turned out for Kangaroo Island, Lou winning the carnival bowling average in 1957 and 1958. On the other hand, football great Ralph Sewer was enlisted by Waikerie and Districts in 1979 winning the batting average with 301 runs at 100 (his 201 not out a record). While my records may be incomplete The Advertiser Challenge Cup has not been won by teams from our area on many occasions. Loxton won in 1927 when it set a score in one match of 7 for 426 (a record only broken in 1995 by Kongorong’s 5/440) East Murray grabbed the title in 1947, Murray Towns had five wins in the late 1980s-early 1990s and Berri and Districts, under captain-organiser Tony Siviour, won in 2003. Individually it is a different matter.

Many outstanding cricketers from the Riverland and Mallee region appear as trophy winners. Pinnaroo and Border’s Lyall Dabinett won the batting aggregate in 1959, Roger Wutke (Waikerie) the aggregate and average in 1966, Brett Weinert (Berri) did likewise in 2000 and another Berri player Mark Weinert took out the aggregate in 2001.

The Advertiser Challenge Cup has not been won by teams from our area on many occasions.

Pinnaroo and Border’s Frank Bayley, who features amongst players who have played in 150 games or 20 carnivals, won the average in 1968. Outstanding Brown’s Well left armer Ralph Roberts took out the bowling aggregate and average in 1954 with 68 wickets at 5.10, while Murraylands’ Stan Huxtable won the aggregate in 1940 and 1957 and Berri’s Jayme Peltz in 2003. Jimmy Freak (Karoonda) won the average in 1967, Ivor Miegel

(Pinnaroo and Border) in 1971 and Navtez Narwal (Berri) in 1998, as well as the fielding award. Pinnaroo and Border’s Dave Kielow gloved the wicketkeeping trophy in 1990. Roberts’ 68 wickets is the fourth biggest haul on record behind Penola legend John Haddrick’s 91 in 1969. Talking of country cricket legends, surely the credibility of this competition cannot be doubted when such long termers as Ivan Bolt (Claypans), Geoff Blackett (Wynarka), Miegel and Brian Herrmann (Waikerie) are recognised. The Haddrick family was instrumental in putting Penola on top of the title winning list with 11, John L. Mosey and John R. Mosey ,of Mid North/Barossa fame made 17 and 14 teams of the year respectively and won 28 trophies between them. Teams have been entered at times by the Tiller and Rowntree families, two Karoonda bowlers Ackland and Guiney each took 10 wickets in an innings in the 1960s and Pinnaroo and Border’s 49 appearances over the years is the most by any team. The ‘second’ cricket carnival – a lot of fun but also a lot of good players playing a lot of good cricket over a lot of historic years.

SAPSASA success Less than 4 weeks to switch off – get ready now! With only four weeks until we switch to digital television, get ready with the answers to some of your most frequently asked questions. Let’s recap - what is digital free-to-air television? Digital signals are sent to and received by your television. Free-to-air TV in Australia is currently broadcast in both digital and analog. However, the analog signals will be phased out between 2010 and 2013 and Australian TV will become digital-only. Analog signals will be switched off around regional South Australia on 15 December 2010.

What do I need to do to get ready for the switchover? After the switchover, free-to-air television will only be available in digital so you’ll need to have a television that can receive digital TV signals. You can convert your existing analog TV by connecting a digital set top box or digital TV recorder, or upgrade to a digital television. You will need a high definition (HD) set top box or TV to receive all of the standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) digital TV channels.

How do I know if I’m already ‘digital ready?’

Why are we switching to digital TV? Digital TV offers improved picture and sound quality and greater program choice with access to new digital channels. The switch to digital-only television will also bring significant social and economic benefits, as it will free up scarce spectrum which can be used for a range of new communications services such as high speed wireless broadband. When can I switch to digital TV? Some digital TV services are already on the air so you can make the switch now. You need to be switched over by 15 December, so the sooner you get ready, the better. What happens if I don’t do anything? You won’t be able to watch free to air TV anymore. The analog TV signals are being switched off for good on 15 December.

If you can watch digital only channels such as ABC2, ABC3 or SBS TWO you’re already watching digital TV and you don’t need to do anything else. These digital TV channels will continue from 15 December. For more information on getting ready for digital TV, visit www.digitalready.gov.au, or call 1800 20 10 13. You can also find your nearest retail store Digital Advisor to help you with more information on switchover and digital TV equipment, or an endorsed antenna installer.

■ RIVERLAND tennis and cricket teams recently completed a very successful year for an efficient and professionally run SAPSASA movement in our region. The tennis team included Barmera Primary School’s Murray Burton, Josh Spillios and Dave Millington, Moorook’s Sharlyn Burdon and Samantha Pearn, Brandon Wundenberg (St Joseph’s, Barmera), Brodie Kollman (Loxton Lutheran), Sam Butterworth (Cobdogla) and Our Lady of the River, Berri’s Marnie Stewart, Alicia Shotton, Emily Taylor and Steve Burton finished their state carnival division three competition in Adelaide undefeated. The cricket team was also extremely competitive in its four games, even though they only won one of their outings in a tough program. Some outstanding individual efforts came from

Superdogs coaches ■ WITH their coach of the past three years, Darren Tieste, to return to a straight out playing capacity, the Riverland Superdogs Australian Masters Football Club, no doubt encouraged by the success of the Mick Malthouse-Nathan Buckley arrangement at AFL premiers Collingwood, have decided to go down a similar path. Sid Norton has been appointed senior coach for 2011 with the younger Shane Healy his deputy and in charge on training nights.

youngsters like Ben Pater, Adam Jackson, Jonty Inglis, Roley Boon, Mackenzie Bristow and Adam Hanlon.

Sunraysia defeated ■ I SPOKE to a jubilant local tennis stalwart, Mike Horsman early on Monday morning. “Our juniors beat Sunraysia yesterday,” he said. You can understand Mike’s excitement, as this is a major turnaround after we have suffered some huge defeats in recent clashes against our interstate rivals in this competition. Riverland plays Sunraysia only once a season now and the last win by our juniors was in 2008. The previous one was in 2006, while there have been six losses in between. This time, Mike admits that the opponents did not

turn up with their number one line-up, but counteracts this by explaining that not all of the leading players were available for the local team either. On Sunday, Riverland won the boys singles 11-4, doubles 6-3, girls singles 10-4, doubles 5-2 and mixed doubles 10-4, a comprehensive victory indeed. But there were some close matches involved. Berri’s Kierren King had a good win at top boys’ singles against highly rated Tyson McLean 6-3, 6-4. While Beau Brown defeated Jack Wilson 2-6, 6-1, 7-6 (10.4) against Jai Green. In girls’ singles, Ashleigh Smith won over Madeline Barker 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (10.2) and in doubles, Imogen Weigall and Juliett Mallinson accounted for Laicy Rogerson and Isobella Collett 4-6, 6-2, 7-6 (10.2). Well done to all involved.

Jacob’s a quiet achiever ■ EARLY in the history of this column, I issued an invitation to any quiet achievers out there to provide me with details of their performances. The source of the material will not be disclosed if there is a story in it. It is a pity so many outstanding efforts are not acknowledged. Like the information that came my way about an apparently modest young man from Loxton, Jacob Otto.

Jacob competes in triathlon in the 14-15 years age group and last season won his division at the Coomealla Triathlon Club. He is a member of the SA Institute of Sport triathlon squad and holds a Triathlon SA junior high performance scholarship and rides with the Riverland Cycling Club. Also, I understand another former Loxton junior, Alek Saunders is part of the SASI squad while attending university in Adelaide.

One horse race in bowls ■ IT SEEMS the local lawn bowls men’s top division is starting to look a bit like a one horse race. The Berri club last Saturday made very short work of the Renmark RSL team that, while trying to stay with the front runners, is again looking to fill the bottom place on the ladder. Andrew Hill and Dennis Treloar had little trouble leading their rinks to easy wins, while Craig Treloar had a real tussle on his hands getting on top of Malcolm Inglis’ four. The ever consistent John Van der Wyst led his rink to a good victory in the only real saving grace for the RSL side that is really struggling to come up with a combination that will trouble any of the other teams. Over at Renmark, the lion finally roared. Renmark, with so much talent in its top side, finally showed that it is going to be a threat later in the season. It chalked up its second win of the season against a Barmera team which

is the hot and cold team of the competition at the moment. At the Loxton home game, against a now full strength Waikerie, the sides could not be split. A draw. The second draw for the competition so far this year. It does seem that the Loxton side that has been such a power house in this competition for many years now, is struggling to get on top of the teams that it normally would have shown the door in years past. And now on top of all of the problems that the other teams have been experiencing with having to take on the Berri side, comes the news that Mark Kubank is making a welcome return to the game. Mark has had about a year and a half away from the game. The word is that it will not take him long to get up to speed. Good players in almost any sport usually make easy work of making a comeback. Welcome back, Mark.

Stokes’ hockey ride far from over

■ THINK John Ormsby Coach of the Year award winner Brett Stokes and you think hockey. Correct, of course, but if ‘Stokesy’ could sing, he could justifiably rejig the old classic I’ve Been Everywhere to go something like “I’ve played every sport”. After his family moved from Morphett Vale to Berri when he was in year three at school, he played some SAPSASA cricket, junior tennis, where he won a most singles wins trophy, and primary school soccer in his early years. Later he dabbled in badminton, where he was invited to a state under 18 trial, competed at state country championships twice whilst a member of the Berri Swimming Club, played touch football for the SA under 21s and competed in triathlons. The son of Ken, a well known Berri lawn bowler and former state baseball pitcher, Brett also played that sport with Winkie Warriors, Berri and Renmark (where he was a premiership player under Ken Prokopec) and represented Riverland teams twice. And while hockey has been his number one winter sport, there was some Australian football. He pulled on a Berri junior guernsey until he was about eight years old, but it was not until he was 21 that he, along with fellow hockey team-mates Brian Gates and Brendon Fewster, ‘defected’ to football for 1994 and 1995. All three represented the Demons at A grade level. Brett also had a stint in

Photo: BRAD PERRY 1999-2000 in the amateur league in Adelaide when he was setting out on his police career. At hockey, he started around nine years of age, played state SAPSASA in 1983, under 13s for SA the following year and later, under 16 schoolboys, before entering senior ranks prematurely around 1990.

He played State Country in 1991 and 1992 and since then his career has seen him play in Adelaide, including some Premier League time at Forrestville, for Berri, Riverland, SA Country in the Oceania Cup and Arafura Games competitions. Along the way he was a member of a Barossa premier-

ship team whilst stationed at Mount Barker briefly in his employment. Brett is still playing for his home club but as indicated by his recent John Ormsby award win, is now making a name for himself as a coach. Perhaps, surprisingly however, he has not coached at senior level for Berri, preferring not to do so whilst playing. He has been a good help help for some club junior teams, also for Riverland under 17 and 18 sides and taken charge of Riverland and zonal teams at state country championships, winning a couple of titles. After coaching SA Country at the national Championships in 2009, he was appointed assistant coach of the Australian under 21 team that played in the Oceania Pacific Cup in Fiji. Now he moves up a notch as he prepares to leave next week as head coach of the 2010 team, again bound for the games in that country where up to eight teams could compete. Brett will be assisted by Paul Blenkiron who captained the 2009 team in a ‘mentoring’ role and played for Berri last season. The Australian squad for Fiji contains 18 players, including five from SA, with all being under 21 this time as the senior ‘mentors’ positions are abandoned. Also in Fiji, in more of an observer’s role, will be Australian senior men’s coach Robert Laffin. Sport, and hockey in particular, has seen a lot of Brett Stokes but it seems certain the journey is far from complete.

In the swim of things By BRAD PERRY ENTHUSIATIC local swimmers will take part in the first event of the Riverland Swimming Association 2010/11 program at Loxton tomorrow night, in what is expected to be a busy season. Participant numbers in local swimming clubs are continuing to remain strong, especially following the recent success of home grown stars Hayden Stoeckel and Sophie Edington at the Commonwealth Games in India. RSA president Jenni

Trewren said having role models such as Stoeckel and Edington certainly raises the profile of the sport locally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They swam for Berri and Loxton, the same as what our kids at the moment have been given the opportunity to do. â&#x2013;  Continued Page 41 â&#x2013;  PREPARING: Renmarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Renee and Anabel van der Hoek watch Berriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sarah Trewren practising her starts, while (front) RSA president Jenni Trewren is excited about the coming season.
