BONNEY BATTLE CONTINUES By BRAD PERRY

THE Lake Bonney Management Committee (LBMC), which was disbanded by the Berri Barmera Council late last year, is planning to go it alone and meet with State Government representatives next month to discuss the popular tourist icon’s long term future. LBMC chairman Joe Gropler said the group is no longer associated with council but does still exist. “We haven’t disbanded the committee,” he said. ■ Continued Page 3

Spotlight on a forgotten illness DEMENTIA is a forgotten illness, pun not entirely intended. It does not have the glossy promotion of breast cancer, or a prominent community pushing its barrow, such as AIDS (which are both, of course, entirely worthy recipients of popular support). Like the memories of its many sufferers, dementia slips through the support cracks and many who are suffering from the illness, along with their carers, family and friends, often feel alone. The Riverland Division of General Practice, next Monday, will launch a book, Moments, Marbles and Memories, which will put the spotlight on dementia. Having been involved in the book’s development, I can vouch for the amazing stories that are shared within. Personal and touching, the stories reveal the depths of despair, as well as the sometimes humourous moments experienced by those living with dementia. It can be a harrowing time when a loved one loses their ‘marbles’ and hopefully this new book will become a relevant resource for those dealing with dementia for the first time. This is one book that deserves to not be forgotten.

Pickers work for earthquake sufferers LOCAL pickers have shown their support for the victims of the Christchurch earthquake, donating the fruits of their labour to the cause. The fig picking fundraiser was organised by local grower Frank Heward and he said it was something he and his workmates were pleased to be involved with. “It was a just a suggestion made,” Mr Heward said. “We donated an hour of our time to do it, I think it was something that was pretty worthwhile.” The New Zealand disaster, which claimed the lives of

over 150 people, touched lives across the world and Mr Heward’s family nearly had a brush with tragedy, as well. “My sister’s daughter lives about one kilometre from the church that collapsed,” he said. Wanting to help, Mr Heward gathered 10 pickers and helped raise $250 for the earthquake relief program. “It was a nice gesture, I think,” Mr Heward said. “It was part of our ‘United Nations’ ■ HELPERS: (Back, from left) Gareath Andrews, Ros reach, we had a few Heward, Joan Finje, Anne Suridge, Lena Gilles, (front) backpackers help Nick Bali, Anne Grocke, Frank Heward, Joy Stoeckel and with picking the figs Mitsu Haza all picked figs to raise funds for the as well.” Christchurch earthquake.

The Berri Barmera Council will allow the Farmers’ Market to...

Relocate to the Berri riverfront THE Riverland Farmers’ Market has gained approval to use the Berri riverfront, in a move likely to upset regular stallholders. Berri Barmera Council approved Food Riverland a 12 month license for the riverfront site close to the visitor information centre, subject to a risk assessment process, at its monthly council meeting on Tuesday. However, the market move is expected to attract much criticism amongst stallholders, when they meet on Saturday. Weekly stallholder Phil Sims said he will oppose the move as he is happy with the market’s current location at the Berri Senior Citizens Club. “I personally would be against it and I would therefore not be a regular,” he said. “I don’t know of anyone who would want to move. “It’s (the riverfront) all very pretty for a lovely day when there is no wind, no rain and the temperature is about 25 degrees but beyond that, it’s ridiculous.”

REPORT BY

BRAD PERRY Another regular stallholder, Mario Centofanti, said he is concerned about shelter at the riverfront. “I’m really against it because we get rainy mornings,” he said. “My product, because it’s oils and soaps and all that, it’s one of those things you can’t get wet or too overheated. “Even if you’ve got your own marquee, it’s time consuming for me to get out there and put that up.” Mr Centofanti agreed that a riverfront market will receive more attention but believes the current facility suits many stallholders. “I prefer where the markets are at now,” he said. Food Riverland chairperson Jenny Semmler said council’s approval to use the riverfront will now be taken to the market com-

Photo: FILE mittee before a final decision is made. “We’re pleased with the decision but we’ve still got further work we have to do with our application,” she said. In council’s monthly meeting agenda, Mrs Semmler said the current market set-up separates stallholders, inside and out. “The format of the market prevents full integration of the inside

and outside stallholders, reducing the overall patron experience,” she wrote. “Additionally, there is little flexibility with market hours due to arrangements with (the Berri) Senior Citizens (Club). “Ideally, the new site would have a greatly reduced rent which will assist in the ongoing financial viability of the market. “At a recent meeting, the stall-

holders agreed to relocating to a new site outside and closer to the retail precinct.” Berri Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton said the market move has council’s full support. “It’s about the group saying this is the way we wish to go forward, so it’s worthy of the council’s support to help the markets survive and prosper,” he said.

Parliamentary debate casts doubts over Futures Fund By BRAD PERRY DOUBT has been cast over whether the State Government will honour a promise to transfer unallocated money from the $20 million Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund to the next financial year. During question time in the Upper House of Parliament on Tuesday, Shadow Attorney-General Stephen Wade quizzed Regional Development Minister Gail Gago as to whether Futures Funds will be available in coming years. “Considering that the program is $5 million of funding over four years and that her announcements last week represent less than $1 million in the first year, will the minister guarantee that any unspent moneys in one year will be rolled over to the following three years?” he asked.

Minister Gago replied, unable to guarantee the money would be rolled over to next year. “I am indeed ferociously committed — fiercely committed — to ensuring that all of those funds are spent on the purpose for which they were intended,” Minister Gago said. “If there are any outstanding funds at the end of this financial year, I will be arguing most strongly — ferociously, nonetheless — fiercely negotiating to ensure that any outstanding funds are carried over.” Minister Gago, who visited the region last week to announce the first successful applicants to access the fund, came under Opposition scrutiny for the State Government taking 13 months to deliver a financial payout. “As Minister for Regional Development, it was really only a matter of weeks in my

new role that I commenced making announcements, so no-one can accuse me of not being fast off the mark because, indeed, I was,” she said during Parliament. “We are making sure that the decisions that we make, in respect to the way we invest in the Riverland, are the best decisions possible and that we make decisions that

During Minister Gago’s two day visit to the region, she announced AgriExchange would receive $620,000 from the fund towards a $1.20 million project to improve facilities at Murtho, along with $20,000 towards an apricot breeding program. The AgriExchange announcement will reportedly see one million additional

cartons of citrus produced. In Parliament question time, Minister Gago also said Riverlanders were thankful for the drought measures put in place by the government.

I will be arguing most strongly... to ensure that any outstanding funds are carried over.

She reported comments from locals involved in suicide intervention during her visit. “I visited the Riverland just a couple of days ago and they are still grateful and acknowledging the support that the State Government

gave during that time (the drought),” she said. “It’s amazing that the honourable members here laugh and scoff, yet those people on the ground, the real people on the ground who lived and worked through a series of adverse events from drought to flood, clearly, as I said, raised with me their gratitude.” When asked about local irrigators still being on 67 per cent allocations, despite the first high river in over a decade, Minister Gago said this issue was not raised during her visit. “I cannot recall the irrigation entitlements being raised, to the best of my knowledge, with me,” Minister Gago said. “If it was raised, it was only raised in a very minor way in passing, which is quite amazing considering the length of time that I was there visiting.”

Recycling expedition A BUS trip has been organised to allow local opponents of the regional waste dump, to be based near Monash, to visit a similar facility. The Berri Barmera Council has organised the trip to the Mildura Recycling Facility for this Saturday. A Berri Barmera Council spokesperson said the tour will show opponents of the Riverland facility how a similar dump works. “The purpose of the tour is to view the Mildura facility so that concerned residents living within proximity of the proposed site of the Riverland facility (and others) have a better understanding of the proposed concept,� the spokesperson said.

DEMENTIA is an illness that strikes many and can become all consuming for the sufferer, as well as their family and friends, changing the lives of all involved. An incredibly personal look at the lives of Riverland residents dealing with dementia is set to break some of the myths about the illness, as well as provide a guiding light for people who may think they are alone in dealing with it. Moments, Marbles and Memories has been developed by the Riverland Division of General Practice to share the experiences of people suffering dementia, along with their family and friends. The book features stories compiled over the past year from Riverlanders and is a reflective look at the disease, the good and the bad, and will officially be launched on Monday night. Project co-ordinator Cale Edwards, of the RDGP, is excited about the book and its prospects to help people of all walks of life.

“It tells the stories of people and how they cope living with dementia, or who have dementia,� Mrs Edwards said. “It has all of the ups and downs of life with someone with dementia, including the sad parts but there are also some happy stories that will make you laugh.�

It h has all the ups and downs of life with someone with dementia.

The book covers a broad range of community members; from the carers of dementia sufferers, to the experiences of ethnic and Aborigi-

nal people and the variety of ways in which differing cultures handle the life changing aspects of the illness. It highlights that dementia sufferers can remain in the family home or become residents of a nursing home, depending upon the level of care needed. Local children have also contributed to the book, providing artwork that colours the stories within. It is hoped Moments, Marbles and Memories will become a national resource for health workers, carers and family members working with dementia sufferers. “It also has information about resources and places you can contact for assistance with dementia and related issues,� Mrs Edwards said. During the launch, a play, Under Her Hat, based upon some of the stories in Moments, Marbles and Memories, written by well known playwright Isabelle Danforth-Smith, will also be performed. The launch will take place at the Riverland Division of General Practice training room, 3 Vaughan Court, Berri, from 7pm Monday night.

“What we’ve got to do is, we’ve got to regroup and refocus on what we can achieve for the lake. “There is no point in us just throwing our hands in the air because somebody has taken the regulator away.� The committee was on the cusp of implementing its $100,000 long term management plan for the lake before the Berri Barmera Council severed all ties with the group and the Napper’s Bridge regulator was removed. “We’ll meet with the Murray catchment board and see if we can ascertain whether they are interested in preservation of Lake Bonney on a long term basis,� Mr Gropler said. “We haven’t given up on Lake Bonney, we’ve always tried to do our best for Lake Bonney. “We still think that Lake Bonney needs our help.

“Sure, the regulator has gone but that was never going to be long term.� Mr Gropler said Lake Bonney will need to receive a State Government environmental water allocation, as it has in previous years, once the river levels drop. “Once the river goes back to pool level, the water will be held back in Lake Bonney and won’t be allowed out, which will mean salt will accumulate and the lake will deteriorate once again,� he said. “Nobody has fixed Lake Bonney. “It has got a reprieve but it’s still in serious trouble.� Berri Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton said no decision has been made with State Government groups as to how

the lake will be managed in the long term. “It’s been circumvented a bit with the high river and how much water is in the lake,� he said. “That’s alleviated a lot of the problems we’ve had.� Mr Beaton said the Lake Bonney Management Committee was disbanded by council. “Joe Gropler is not the chairman of the Lake Bonney Management Committee because the Lake Bonney Management Committee doesn’t exist anymore,� Mr Beaton said. “If it’s a group of ex members that are trying to do something, then that’s up to their relationship with the State Government.� When River Murray levels drop, Mr Beaton said Lake Bonney levels will follow. “It will be what it’s historically been,� he said. “It will fluctuate up and down as the river fluctuates up and down at pool level.�

Wine license secures future By BRAD PERRY THE Riverland Vine Improvement Committee has secured its immediate future after receiving a wine producer’s license. The not-for-profit organisation, which trials new winegrape varieties and rootstocks at its Monash site, will use funds from the sale of its wine for continued research. “The difficult time the whole industry has been going through has an immediate impact on things here,” Riverland Vine Improvement Committee manager David Nitschke said. “We were sort of questioning whether we could continue to do that sort of work while things are so tough out there in the industry,” “We’re spending, just in trials alone, over $15,000 a year and that does fluctuate

■ READY TO SELL: Riverland Vine Improvement Committee assistant winemaker Mick Sewell with the organisation’s wines, which will now be sold to fund its immediate future. Photo: JANE WILSON from season to season. “We make a few dollars from selling cuttings but not very much at all and those few dollars soon get chewed up into research or trial work.

“Now we are hopeful, over the next couple of seasons, we’ll be able to sell enough wine that we can get back some of those dollars we’ve spent doing the trial work to allow us to continue

to do it.” Mr Nitschke said the committee attempted to find sponsorships to fund trials but with the current economic climate, was unsuccessful. “We have asked sponsors and asked if people want to get involved in it and, obviously, at the moment people are hurting out there, there are other higher priorities and we understand that,” he said. “What we do sell of the wine goes back into our kitty, so to speak, which means the costs of the trial work we are doing is subsidised somewhat by the product we are selling off. “It either allows us to do more trials and more research in those areas, or it just is not such a burden on our pocket as far as doing that modelling goes.”

It took around six months for the committee to receive its wine producers license after Mr Nitschke said the group was spurred on by what would have been a bronze medal effort at the Mildura Alternative Wine Show late last year. The committee was unable to receive the award because it did not have a wine producer’s license. “That really did stimulate us,” Mr Nitschke said. “They are of good quality, the wines, even though they are small scale and different

varieties and we can get the full accolade for it next time around.” Mr Nitschke said more and more local growers are successfully trying new grape varieties. “We’ve been working with some of them for a few years now and that has led to a number of small plantings going on from an experimental size to what we call a small commercial lot,” he said. “There have been growers who are now supported by wineries for several of these new varieties.”

RIVERLAND irrigators feel more confident about the imminent Murray Darling Basin Plan following the visit from a key figure last week. With last year’s draft guide to the plan outlining South Australian irrigators would lose 35 per cent of their water entitlements, irrigators were given renewed hope with Murray Darling Basin Authority chairman Craig Knowles promising to take a region by region approach to the rejigged plan during his visit last Thursday. Renmark stonefruit grower Tim Grieger, who met with Mr Knowles, said the new approach towards the plan is refreshing.

“He made it quite clear that he was out to establish a good communication process with all the communities across the basin and to take on board the views and concerns of the communities and that’s a whole refreshing outlook,” he said. “It’s what we’ve been seeking all along, to have that rapport with the Authority. “We’ve been saying all along that, in regards to the regions across the basin, no one size fits all. “Each region has particular characteristics and he emphasised he would be looking at a region by region basis.” Mr Grieger said he welcomed a new approach towards the plan. “We can’t go backwards, we can

only go forwards and he said the work that has been done in regards to the guide so far will be put aside and he will have a whole fresh look with no preconceived idea of what the outcome might be,” Mr Grieger said. Basin Community Committee member Jeff Parish said while the visit was positive, the release of the basin plan’s draft will tell the true story. “He’s aware of the efficiency of the irrigators here and he’s taking all that into consideration as part of what he is looking at,” he said. “People were encouraged by what he said but I did hear growers saying ‘but the proof will be in the pudding when we see the draft plan come out’.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The saviour has cometh IN THE early years of our most recent drought, when Riverland families were watching their orchards die for lack of water, we watched as corporate companies ploughed the paddocks, installed massive irrigation systems and planted thousands of citrus trees, almond trees and vines. We watched those trees thrive and grow while we watched the bulldozers clear our dead trees. Then, one of those corporates told the established citrus growers that they did not need our small crops but that they would be so kind as to take them off our hands. So, a group of citrus growers some of whom had founded and built Australia’s best citrus brand, were left to find new markets for the fruit they grew. However, the drought continued. Many millions of South Australian dollars were transferred interstate for the purchase of water but still, the trees died. Soon, the family blockies (the

hearts and souls of the Riverland) could not grow enough citrus to keep many of the packing sheds economically viable. One by one, we saw them close. Our family blockies and processors are on the brink of extinction. Shame on all those who allowed this to happen to our state. Shame on those who turned our green, productive, profitable orchards into weed infested wastelands but hallelujah, the saviour has cometh. The Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund has given the all devouring corporate monster a big percentage of the fund’s dollars to upgrade their packing shed. No matter that it’s miles from the workforce, it is cheaper to bring in foreign seasonal workers anyhow. No matter that it is miles from the orchards of the remaining Riverland family blockies, the growers will pay the transport costs. It will be cheaper than transporting the fruit from Mildura. I love our Riverland like a tree thrives on sweet rain on its leaves

Have your say about the issues that affect you. and fresh water to its roots but oh, how I wish that I could move my block out of this state. There is absolutely not one drop of morals, ethics or commonsense between any of the bozos who run South Australia. Betty Lloyd, Lyrup.

RSL Bowls Club for its magnificent effort in organising the Flood Relief Bowls Event, to assist our club following the recent flooding. The cheque ($4050) was presented by Western Downs Regional Councillor Bill McCutcheon to men’s section president and board member John Gray, on Tuesday, March 15. In particular, I must thank Robert ‘Dixie’ and Sue Lee who have been great to deal with, and also Graham ‘Charlie’ Charlton for his time and ability to promote the event, and most importantly, the contribution from the Riverland Weekly and radio station 5RM. We still have cuttings from your paper, sent by Dixie, posted on our noticeboard at the club. Through your paper, we hope to thank all the clubs, businesses and individuals who supported the

event. With the information distributed at our club and the considerable reporting by our weekly paper The Chinchilla News, your community now has a very good relationship with our whole community. Our club, as with the town and district, is slowly getting back to normal and when we see what other disasters have occurred recently, we have not been too unlucky. However, when we consider the only other financial support we have received so far is from two Queensland clubs, with $1000 and $500, you can see why your club’s and district’s support has been simply outstanding.

Information evening Council considers selling property DID you know men in rural and regional Australia have a 21 per cent higher prostate cancer mortality rate than men in capital cities? A Prostate Cancer Information Evening will be held on Monday, March 28, from 7.30pm, at the Berri Resort Hotel. Key speaker will be urologist Dr James Aspinall. Information will be provided about testing, diagnosis treatment and post treatment in a relaxed, supportive environment. The evening is sponsored by the Berri Lions Club, supported by the Prostate Cancer

Foundation of Australia and PCFA Central Australian Chapter. One of the aims in holding this event is to encourage the formation of a local prostate cancer support group. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosis in Australia (excluding non melanoma skin cancer). This year alone, it is estimated almost 20,000 Australian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, with more than 3300 likely to lose their life to this disease.

At this month’s Loxton Waikerie Council meeting, new information came to light which suggests contact may be made with relatives of the owner of the property, after a decade long search. “We’ve had some information about other potential relatives of the property owner and information was provided to us and we will try and contact those people to see whether the rates can be settled,” Council

chief executive officer Peter Ackland said. “There’s been some directions to try and find the people that own the property or have some correspondence with them and it has taken a bit of time to try and ascertain where they are and to try and get in contact with them.” In June last year, council adopted the recommendation to make further attempts to contact the owner but had been unable to do so, despite investigations by Revenue SA, the Australian Electoral Commission, the Department for Crown Leases and Von Doussas Debt Collection and Reporting.

“The current outstanding amount is $4423.10, with an annual rate levy this year of $561.20, capital value of $89,000 and constitutes a land size of 896.8 hectares,” Mr Ackland wrote in this month’s council meeting agenda. “This represents a significant debt outstanding over a number of years without any attention or contact by the owner, despite the efforts of council to contact him/her.” It is understood sale of the property will be made as a last resort if council cannot make further contact with relatives of the property owner to recover debt on the property with unpaid rates.

sa@aicm.com.au By BRAD PERRY THE Karoonda East Murray Council has been forced to step up its road maintenance program after South Australia’s record harvest left a number of unsealed Mallee roads in disrepair. Karoonda East Murray Council mayor Kevin Burdett said the decision not to open Viterra silos in Galga and Copeville also impacted on heavy road traffic. “That put more pressure on this road running northwest of Karoonda, which is Karoonda to Copeville, Galga and also Karoonda to Bow Hill,” he said.

“As we’ve had a record harvest, as far as quantity, naturally, that’s going to impact on the road because of the amount of heavy trucks that are travelling over the unsealed roads.” Mr Burdett said council is currently spending hundreds of thousands of dollars sealing several roads in a bid to prevent further damage and hopes the situation will not worsen next harvest. “Every year we get deterioration of the roads due to the harvest traffic,” Mr Burdett said. “The trucks quite naturally, and not surprisingly, find the weak patches on the

road. “We cannot have all of the roads in perfect condition all of the time, that is just not going to happen. “We have a lot of roads which do require roadwork to bring them up to a standard, where they can handle more heavy traffic without falling to pieces but that’s a very long term program. “We’ve got some special local road funding and we are currently spending that on preparing for seal heading towards Perponda. “We are just hopeful of getting that continued in the next few years so that we can continue the seal all the way to Bow Hill.”

Seminar on corporate law changes IN OCTOBER 2011, substantial changes will occur in commercial laws which affect the way creditors can register security over their client’s and customers. The legal changes, which are part of a broader Commonwealth and State agenda to standardise commercial law across Australia, will impact businesses of all sizes. With the introduction of the Personal Properties Securities Act, a single 24/7 online register of all types of security interests will be created. Over 200 separate laws across Australia will be amended and 40 different security registers will be abolished as the Personal Property Security Register becomes the one-stop shop for the registration of any security interest over assets. Currently when a business grants or takes security, where that security is registered is dependent upon the nature of the asset being secured. All fixed and floating company charges, for example, are registered with the Australian Securities Investment Commission. Interests in motor vehicles are at REVS and Crop and Fruit Liens are on the appropriate register. All that will change with the new law. James Neate, partner of Adelaide law

firm Lynch Meyer who advises in this area, says that many businesses are unaware of these important changes. “Businesses of all kinds, big and small, will be affected by these legal changes,” he said. “Apart from finance arrangements with your own bank, any supplier of goods who sells a product on credit will be affected and may be worse off if they aren’t prepared.” Neate says that retention of title clauses, without PPS registration, will no longer be effective if a customer defaults and goes into any form of insolvency such as administration or liquidation. These important legal changes and how to prepare for them, are being discussed at a one day seminar at the Berri Resort Hotel this Friday. The seminar is presented by the Australian Institute of Credit Management, Australia’s leading not-for-profit trainer in the credit/finance sector. Apart from PPS, the seminar will give an overview of credit contracts, debt collection and the insolvency process. Any enquiries are directed to the AICM on 8365 9021 or the executive officer Kerry Hammill on 0422 544 600.

IN HIS second year of living in the Riverland, after migrating from Europe, Louis Nagy nearly returned home following a torrid 16 day heat wave in 1939 where temperatures almost hit 50 degrees. Living in Glossop on his father’s fruit block, Louis would end up staying in the region after the Second World War broke out and he has since grown to love the region fondly. Louis initially endured a tough existence after the war. “There was no sink in the house, no washing machine, no electric stove, no nothing,” he said. Louis, who became a Berri councillor following the war, witnessed the changes in technol-

ogy that impacted on the town when an electric generator was built to service the community. “It was much better for the fruit growers because in the 1930s, there was not much and some of them still carried the lamp,” he said. “The council didn’t have the money to give power to everyone. “When I came on council, we found out that things had to change and we were pretty tough. “We were one of the youngest councils in South Australia in Berri.” The council also had plans to build a new hospital, which Louis said cost 112,000 pounds, with 37 beds, which was eventually completed in 1960. “The people were young after the First World War and they

came with their wives and nobody was sick, they had one doctor here and that was all right,” he said. “It was on the agenda that we had to build a new hospital, it only took 12 months to complete. “The architect said the hospital needs 180,000 bricks and, of course, that was no problem. “There was 27 acres of bushland where the hospital is.” With an influx of migrants into the region in 1948, Louis said he

lobbied for roads to be named, so it was easier for the new residents to find their way around. “The council had to do something, only the main road was named, there was no names for other roads,” he said. Plans for a swimming pool in Berri were also drawn up during Louis’ time on council but he said people complained it would cost too much. Louis also remembers when the Riverland experienced its biggest ever flood in 1956. “One morning the next neighbour knocked on the door and he said ‘wake up, the water is coming in’,” Louis said. “I could see it right from here and I went out and it seemed to me we were in Port Adelaide because we were all flooded.”

Farm fair a fun day for families THE Karoonda Farm Fair returns for 2011 next Friday, chock full of entertainment for young and old. After the farming community received nearly 50 millimetres of rain recently, giving a positive start to the grain season, event manager Ray Bald said everyone is looking forward to the day. “Signs are looking very promising at the moment,” Mr Bald said. “We have two days of great entertainment, Friday will be a day for farmers to come and have a look, while Saturday will be the family day.”

The many fun activities and entertainment on offer will include a V8 Supercar simulator, motorbike extreme trials, live band Lee Brocky and the Outback Overdrive and a fashion parade. A stone to mark the 100th year of the Karoonda community will also be laid. The Farm Fair is a popular event, drawing crowds from the Mallee and further afield. “The location is not heavily populated, yet we can get numbers of 10,000 to 12,000 people coming,” Mr Bald said.

“There’s no reason to think we won’t get similar numbers this year.” Mr Bald said the event also attracts people from interstate. “We’ve had people come from Melbourne and New South Wales, farmers catching up with other farmers,” he said. “It’s a promotion of the region and an opportunity to see different trade exhibits that you wouldn’t normally.” The Karoonda Farm Fair will start on Friday, April 1, from 9am to late, and continue on Saturday, from 9am to 5pm.

Volunteer paramedics needed in Morgan UPPER Murray Mallee residents are being urged to give their time to become paramedics, with a shortage of volunteer numbers in the area. SA Ambulance regional team leader John Barrett said small towns such as Morgan need an urgent influx of volunteers before the busy Easter break. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Morgan is one we are really concentrating on,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small town but it gets a big population over Easter and we have trouble covering the rosters there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for people and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start training them straight

away.â&#x20AC;? Mr Barrett said having extra volunteers can be the difference between life and death in some situations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The volunteers are trained so well they can save peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Mallee towns of Pinnaroo, Karoonda and Lameroo also need ambulance volunteers. SA Ambulance is currently running a campaign called skills for life to recruit volunteers, offering skills that can save lives and last a lifetime. If you would like to volunteer, please call 1800 655 306.

FORMER Loxton man Paul Burgess received a national bravery award on Monday, following his involvement in a dramatic rescue from a fire in a Darwin shopping centre. Now living in the Top End, with his wife Chloe and young family, Mr Burgess was among a group of five, including fellow supermarket workmates, who were involved in the rescue. The drama started on February 3, last year, after a man, disgruntled by a workers compensation payout, loaded a shopping trolley with jerry cans and fuel and set

Mr Burgess, who was working next door to the office, and the other recipients of the group bravery citation, helped contain the fire and assisted victims find their way through smoke and debris.

We can all do something for the Earth T

HIS Saturday marks the fourth annual Earth Hour and Riverlanders are being urged to, like millions around the world, switch off lights and electrical household appliances to take part. Earth Hour originated in Sydney in 2007 and lights were switched off around the country at approximately 8pm. The following year, 31 cities around the world took part and many well-known landmarks across the country, such as Romeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Colosseum and San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Golden Gate Bridge switched off their lights. Christchurch saw a drop of 13 per cent in electricity demand, the highest percentage of the cities taking part. In 2009, many tv stations, including the National Geographic Channel and Cartoon

Network, suspended broadcasting for the hour, proving that Earth Hour was well and truly in full swing. Last year, 126 countries took part in Earth Hour, with the event reaching its goal of getting over one billion households participating. As every year, Earth Hour in 2011 will be organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and the charity is hoping that actions by households taking part in the event, will go beyond the hour.

Earth Hour facts â&#x2013; Among the 126 countries taking part, there were approximately 4000 cities. â&#x2013;  The concept started with WWF joining forces with the Sydney Morning Herald, in 2007.

â&#x2013; Many worldwide identities, such as singer Melanie Chisholm, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, basketballer Steve Nash, pop star Leona Lewis and rock band The Cranberries are all promoters of Earth Hour. â&#x2013;  The original figures of households taking part in Earth Hour in 2007 was approximately 1.2 million. This skyrocketed to over one billion last year. â&#x2013;  Vietnam saw its energy demand minimised to 500,000 kilowatts per hour during last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Earth Hour. â&#x2013;  Last year, more international landmarks such as Big Ben, the Empire State Building and the Parthenon also took part in Earth Hour. â&#x2013;  This year, the big switch off will be 8.30pm at each countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local time.

HE Loxton North Primary School Harvest Festival will be held on Friday, April 1, with all the excitement, tasty food and its Great Stomp on offer. Since 1989, the festival has been a crowd-drawing event. School staff member and parent Monica Gray said this year’s show promises to be another fun and action-packed event. “We’ve got lots on offer for everyone,” Mrs Gray said. “This year, it should be a really great event.” The main attraction for the festival is the Great Stomp, a grape crushing competition, which always brings a lively and fun atmosphere to the event. “There will be two different

events in the Stomp, the senior and junior,” Mrs Gray said. There will be plenty of fun for children as well, with the festival having a ‘Kids Alley’, plus rides, including a bouncy castle, the Apex fire truck, a giant slide and a merry-go-round. The festival will be hosted

Thomas has early running in yabby competition WITH the Riverlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Biggest Yabby Competition in full swing, Thomas Burton has taken home two weekly awards for the biggest entry. The Paringa teenager just managed to sneak into the adult category and has overcome older competition to snare the prize. He will now be eligible to win the overall prize when the competition concludes in June. His father Tim spoke to the Riverland Weekly and said Thomas was delighted to win the weekly prize. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was rapt to think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the running to win the overall prize,â&#x20AC;? Mr Burton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He plays footy as well, so heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happy to know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supporting the Ramco Football Club.â&#x20AC;? Mr Burton said the size of the yabbies remains a secret but added they were definitely not tiny creatures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I heard it takes 20 or so years (for yabbies) to get to that size,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were certainly monsters.â&#x20AC;? Mr Burton said the high water levels, which have prompted the Riverlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Biggest Yabby Competition, are like Christmas in the region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just great with what â&#x2013; BIG CATCH: Paringa teenager Thomas Burton is in the running to win the Riverlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Biggest Yabby Competition. you are able to catch.â&#x20AC;?

Women celebrate achievements AIMED at raising awareness around womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s issues, International Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day acknowledges the hard work and routine tasks that many women do without pay. The day puts women on the agenda of many organisations around the world and celebrates acts of courage and determination of individuals. For the past five years, the Riverland Zonta Club has hon-

oured women in the region during its celebrations. Aboriginal, migrant and volunteering women have been recognised for their efforts and last year, 100 years of Guiding was celebrated with local guide leaders. The Riverland Zonta Club recognised and said thank you to the many local women who contribute to the region and often do unacknowledged

work. This year, the celebration was in line with the Berri centenary and honoured the work of local Berri women. Five Berri women, Margaret Evans, Jenny Thiele, Audrey Todd, Josie Nelsson and Diane Walsh each recieved a community service award for their tireless hours of work that help make this region tick.

NIGEL FIDDLER

Local artists help scratch an itch HAVE you ever had an itch that you can’t scratch? In Riverland author Liz Frankel’s latest children’s book Hairy Nose. Itchy Butt that is the problem faced by the story’s main character, a southern hairy nosed wombat, after his scratching tree is chopped down. Apart from the book’s irresistible critters, it also has an important environmental message. The book is beautifully illustrated by renowned local artist Garry Duncan who has an amazing ability to capture the South Australian landscape and its creatures through his paintings. Both keen environmentalists, Liz and Garry are proud to be launching their book at Banrock Station tomorrow morning. Hairy nose. Itchy Butt will be available from all good book stores and can be ordered online at www.exislepublishing.com with part proceeds going to the Conservation Ark Wombat Progam.

Community members with ideas wanted THE Berri Barmera Council is urging any community members with ideas for projects or improvements in the area to contact council. With the budget process currently being drawn up, Berri Barmera Council chief executive David Beaton said funding for ideas is easier within budget setting time. “If there are things people would like to see council involved in or do, it’s the perfect time to be talking to their local councillors to lobby to try and get some of these done,” he said. “If people do it in this period, there is a good chance it will be considered.”

Eyeing off a good cause

Consultation for the arts COUNTRY Arts SA wants to know what you think about its programming. The peak arts body is holding statewide consultation to see how the public thinks the future of arts in regional SA should be developed. A forum will be held at the Chaffey Theatre’s Drama Studio from 4.30pm this Monday. For more information, contact 84 440 400 or email louise.davidson@countryarts. org.au

■ DONATIONS: SpecSavers employee Kathy Fisher, practice manager Lisa Nagel and Telesha Uren with glasses that will be donated to the Lion’s Club for the less fortunate. Photo: JANE WILSON

SPECSAVERS Berri is doing its bit for the visually impaired people around the state by donating glasses to the Lion’s Club for Easter. SpecSavers will accept any glasses and is hoping to see 300 pairs donated to the cause by the Easter holidays. Berri SpecSavers practice manager Lisa Nagel said it is a ‘no-brainer’ to be involved in the campaign. “Things like that we’re not using, so we might as well donate them,” Ms Nagel said. “We do a little bit with the Lions Club already and we’ve got 200 pairs to donate so far. “We’ll be taking in the lot, single vision, multifocal and bi-focal, for example.” Ms Nagel said SpecSavers are confident of hitting the 300 mark by Easter. “We’re just encouraging people to empty out their draws until Easter comes,” she said. “It will make a big difference for some people.”

Forward thinker Kerri’s big win

■ BONNEY: The high waters lapping the planks of the Lake Bonney jetty have certainly created a lot of attention and seen many people flocking to Barmera to take a look. Among those enjoying the view from the lake’s jetty in recent weeks have been Stefan and Tiana Symeonakis. Photo: JIM SYMEONAKIS

THIS month’s winner of the 5RM, Mission Australia Employee of the Month award is Kerri Traeger of DN’s Newsagency.

By CALLUM TRIFONOFF SINCE opening 10 years ago, Big River Auto Group has won many awards, most of which relate to outstanding customer service. On Saturday, the company held a roadshow to mark the end of the demo clearance month, inviting the public to come along and, according to dealer principal Sav Sarro, windowshop. “We were very pleased with the outcome of the day,” Mr Sarro said. “We had a steady stream of visitors who had the opportunity to come and see firsthand the operations of a leading car dealership. “The feedback was great and it showed a lot of people beforehand didn’t understand what’s behind the fence (of the dealership) and I think they really enjoyed their time.” Mr Sarro said he was happy to coincide the roadshow with the end of the demo clearance month. “Normally, we use this type of open day for new vehicle launches,” he said. “This year though, we felt we wanted to do something different and hence dubbed it a roadshow/open day. ■ Continued Page 27

â&#x2013; INTERESTED: Moorook residents Diana Van Meel and Maarten Smits enjoying the car event.

â&#x2013; SALES: Big River Nissan sales manager Shane Uren helped customers during the roadshow.

Toyota Australia thinks it might be onto a winner with the Prius C city car, revealed in concept form earlier this year ahead of its 2012 production debut, according to the Motor Report. Before it locks the car in for a local launch however, Toyota will show the Prius C (pictured) at Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Australian International Motor Show in July, to gauge the compact hybridâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appeal among Australian buyers. Toyota Australia senior executive director for sales and marketing David Buttner believes the urban appeal of the Prius C would go a long way towards beating down stigma and increasing the acceptance of hybrid cars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are bringing it (the Prius C concept) to the Australian motor show to test its appeal among buyers who we expect will come from a different group to those attracted to the current Prius,â&#x20AC;? Mr Buttner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are compact-car buyers, including young singles and couples, who want a mainstream city car that provides outstanding fuel economy while being fun to drive.â&#x20AC;? Like the nearly identical FT-CH concept before it, the Prius C is around 560 millimetres shorter than the regular Toyota Prius. It maintains nearly all of the larger Prius carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s width, however, with only 25mm cut from its sides.

â&#x2013; ON SHOW: A Toyota RAV4 on display during the Big River Auto Group roadshow.

â&#x2013; From Page 25 â&#x20AC;&#x153;If people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily in the market for a vehicle, then they would drive straight past our dealership. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Days like Saturday give people an opportunity to see what goes on, with no pressure to buy.â&#x20AC;? Crowd numbers at the roadshow were encouraging, according to Mr Sarro. Big River Nissan sales manager Shane Uren said there were no big expectations from the roadshow. However, it was a great chance to give the public a look at what was on offer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We marked the vehicles down, we wanted to highlight the value of some of our 2010 demonstrators,â&#x20AC;? Mr Uren said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it was an effective way to get us out there, we invested a bit of time into it beforehand.â&#x20AC;? Mr Uren said there was plenty of excitement from the locals at the roadshow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit more water in the river, there was plenty of enthusiasm from people,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mr Sarro said there have been many highlights since Big River Auto Group was founded a decade ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can name several,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a long history of being an award winning dealership and we have a string of awards that go back nearly nine years.â&#x20AC;? The company has won the South Australian and Northern Territory Toyota National Rural Dealership of the Year from 2002 to 2007 and 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great for us as a company, this is all a testament to our staff and their passion for absolute customer service,â&#x20AC;? Mr Sarro said. The 2010 awards will be held at the end of April and Mr Sarro said he is keeping his fingers crossed Big River Auto Group can win the top title for a ninth time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m quietly confident we can win but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see,â&#x20AC;? he said.

CHARLIE’S SPORTS GOSS WITH GRAHAM CHARLTON

T Riverland’s most authoritative sports commentator ... The

The day a local farmer bowled over the Poms ■ ON January 24 and 25 this year, it was the 60th anniversary of the time at Renmark when a 22 year old farmer from Caliph captured nine English wickets in an innings for a SA Country cricket team. I sat down last Friday for a long chat with that man, Lou Curtis, now 82 and living in Loxton, and found he recalled that record breaking occasion, as well as his remarkable cricket career and life on the land, as if it had happened yesterday. The Lou Curtis story would fill a book, so how does one even attempt to condense it to fit into a column like this? Following Lou’s historic 9/60 runs against Freddie Brown’s 195051 team, former Australian Test player and respected journalist Arthur Mailey wrote in a leading Queensland paper, the Courier Mail, “Curtis, I feel, has greater possibilities than England’s Brian Statham”. Now that was a big call, as Statham, then 20, made his Test debut against New Zealand two months later and went on to become one of his country’s best bowlers ever, playing in 70 tests for 252 wickets and capturing 2260 ■ BIG MOMENT: Caliph’s Lou Curtis (left) with former Test great Arthur Mailey after the local farmer had destroyed the English scalps in first class matches at an batting at Renmark.

es without playing district cricket, Lou tried to shrug off the leg problem, practiced with the group and played. Yet, he struggled with the ball, although his first three overs were maidens. He does recall frustrating the West Aussies when making 17 in a partnership of 49 in 34 minutes with SA fast bowler Geoff Noblett. That was Lou’s only state game but he was thrilled recently to have the chance to chat to a well known team-mate from the match, Neil Dansie, when he responded to an invitation to attend Adelaide Oval for a dinner that acknowledged 50 years of membership at SACA. Lou also played for SA Country against England in 1955. “They gave as a good hiding,” he said. “Someone in the press wrote that the country players got behind the ball better than some of our first class players. “That was not very wise when the England attack included Frank ‘Typhoon’ Tyson, Brian Statham, Alec Bedser and Trevor Bailey, one of their best line-ups ever.” Lou was also a very good footballer, playing all of his career at Wunkar, where he won three Mail Medals. He followed brother Bill to Prince Alfred College (1942-45) and excelled at both cricket and football and I noticed amongst the extensive family memorabilia, a team photo of a PAC under 14 football premiership team. As I left Lou on Friday, I asked him how he was enjoying his retirement in a unit in Loxton? There was a glint in his eye when he responded, “I would rather be home,” then followed up after a pause with “but I know that is not possible”. Although, it did explain again why Lou Curtis’ wonderful cricket career did not perhaps reach even greater heights.

■ COMPARISON: England bowler Brian Statham, with whom Lou Curtis was favourably compared.

Juniors reinforce basketball’s status in the region ■ SOME terrific contests in the major round of the junior basketball competition confirmed the healthy status of the sport in our region. A number of our players chosen continue to play for state teams and respect for our competitive representative teams wherever they compete reflects sound management at the top and the availability of some excellent volunteers to steer the youngsters down a basketball career path. Those that witnessed the un-

der 18 boys grand final that saw Barmera defeat Loxton, 33-27, are still talking about the excitement and quality of the clash. The 2010-11 most valuable player for the division, Barmera’s Mason Middleton, was probably the difference between the teams with a best on court performance. In the MVP award, he finished ahead of SA under 18 team member Loxton’s Tyson Hoffmann. Another close contest resulted in Renmark defeating Supercats by one point (27-26) in under 14

girls. Renmark’s Sophie Croft was adjudged best on court. In under 18 girls, Tianne Hoffmann (BOC) starred for Berri in its 32-16 win against Renmark, while in the under 16 age group, Barmera (Jessie Gregory), defeated Berri 49-28 in the girls and in the boys, Loxton (Adam Proud ) won a high scoring affair against Berri 54-42. Loxton (Sam May) also won under 14 boys 40-20 from Berri, while in under 12s Loxton (Portia Size) won the girls 32-16 over

Renmark and doubled up by also grabbing the boys (Declan Size) 4026 against Barmera. Other most valuable player awards for the season went to Kelly Nelson (Renmark) ahead of Ebony Hoffmann (Berri) and Tara Learhinan (Loxton) in under 18 girls, while Stephanie Sarro, from Berri, finished ahead of team-mate Indee Thiele in under 16 girls and in under 16 boys, Berri’s Kale Trussell won from Loxton pair Adam Proud and Tyler Lange. Marlee George (Supercats) won

under 14 girls with Renmark’s Ashlea James and Madison Pitman joint runners-up, and in the boys, Loxton’s Jesse Will took the honours from Sam May and Renmark’s Lachlan Lellmann. In the under 12s, Barmera’s Ashlee Wutke won the award from Renmark’s Della Haynes in the girls and Zane Leuth (Loxton) finished clear of Henry Baker (Barmera) in the boys. Overall, Loxton won four junior titles, with Barmera grabbing two and Berri and Renmark one each.


Champions keep playing until they get it right. ~ Billie Jean King

Mallee cricket finals heat up ■ RECENTLY I wrote that all interest in the last round of two day matches in the Pinnaroo and Border A grade cricket competition focused on the meeting of Pinnaroo, second, and Parrakie, third, as they played for the right to host the preliminary final between those two teams. Murrayville, despite having a bye, had already clinched top position. Pinnaroo and Border, of course, I believe sensibly, play a top three major round in their five team competition. Well, to suggest that the only interest in a round of cricket matches was to see which of two teams finished above the other was dangerous. You should never underestimate the surprises that sport can dish out. The season had not seen an outright win up until the last round but in those two matches both produced such results. In the end, the top three ended up Murrayville, Parrakie and Lameroo with Pinnaroo plunging to fourth. Parrakie defeated Pinnaroo outright with features of the match, a collapse by Pinnaroo from 3/106 to 138 all out and a swash buckling 125 not out by Murray Districts batsman Haydon Thorpe as Parrakie chased a target of 144 in its second innings for maximum points. At the same time, Lameroo defeated 2009-10 champions Parilla outright in a low scoring affair to grab a last gasp finals spot.

You should never underestimate the surprises that sport can dish out.

In last weekend’s preliminary final, Parrakie recovered from 7/117 to make 235, thanks to number eight Matthew Sherman, 45, and number nine Adam Berwick, 76 not out, and then dismissed Lameroo for 178. For Lameroo, Brenton Maynard and Mark Sumner both grabbed four wickets and Roger Pahl made 57, while the best bowler for Lameroo was veteran leg spinner Greg Stephenson, 4/23. Murrayville will now host Parrakie, who were looking at folding due to a lack of players at the start of the 2009-10 season, in the grand final this weekend. In the colts’ grand final, Lameroo 161 defeated Parilla 141, with highlights of the game, half centuries to Josh Barrett (Lameroo) and Ben Hannam (Parilla). Meanwhile, the association’s annual presentations were held on Monday night, with the cricketer of the year award again going to former SA and Victorian representative Drew Crane (Murrayville) on 30 votes from his team-mate Kevin Wyatt, 24, and Lameroo’s Roger Pahl, 21. This season, opposing captains allocated points 5,4,3,2,1 from all players involved in matches, instead of each individual team receiving 3,2,1, as in the past. The batting aggregate went to Pinnaroo’s Sunny Vogt, with 618 runs, and average to Murray Districts’ player Thorpe, 144.67 The bowling aggregate went to Pahl, 28 wickets, and average to Crane, seven. Crane also took home the allrounders’ award. Young Parrakie player Guy Hewett took out the fielding trophy and also cleaned up in the junior section, winning the batting (213 runs) and allrounders trophies. The junior bowling was won by Ben Hannam (15 wickets) and fielding by Lameroo’s Josh Barrett.

Moorook cheers John’s impressive bowls win ■ THE celebrations continue at the Moorook Bowling Club, as a member of its 2010-11 premiership team, Kingston-on-Murray’s John White, won the Riverland Champion of Champions singles title at Berri last Saturday. White, who defeated Mick Wachtel to take out his club’s championship, won through Saturday’s rounds against Tim Lehmann (Loxton RSL), Craig Treloar (Berri) and Mark Voigt (Monash) before defeating Barmera’s Phil Ashton in the final, 21-15. In his younger days, White played cricket and football and he is apparently really slick at snooker but, aged 33, he turned to bowls after suffering a serious back injury. Joining Underdale in 1984, he won both the club singles and pairs in his first full year of the sport and went on to reach the semifinals of the State Champion of Champions singles. In 1986 he joined Holdfast Bay, playing at division one red level (today’s premier league) and then transferred to Clarence Gardens before taking a break from the sport until he was invited to join Marion in 1990, where he again turned out in the division one red competition. He was a member of the inaugural state development squad. In 1996, he moved to the Riverland and apart from 1999, when he played a season with Barmera division one, he has always

been a member at Moorook. At Barmera, he was joined by his younger brother Michael, who won the club’s singles title that year, and has since gone on to play premier league with Somerton Park in Adelaide. Michael won that club’s singles championship in 2008/09 and 2009/10, defeating the number seven ranked male bowler in Australia, Scott Taylor, and has also taken out a SA triples title and finished runner-up in the champion of champions singles. I spoke to White on Sunday afternoon and he was really struggling with his health issues after his four game effort the previous day. He is now due to compete in the Zone Four Champion of Champions Singles at Kapunda on April 9 and 10 but is not certain that he will be able to appear. It all depends on how he is travelling body wise at the time but one thing is for certain ,on the strength of his performance last Saturday, he will keep the representatives from the other associations honest if he makes it out onto the greens. Meanwhile, the Riverland Champion of Champions Pairs, cut short by ill timed rain on Sunday, will be decided today at Renmark with Renmark’s Sean Leesue and Ray Andt meeting Barmera’s John Morena and Ian Wandell.

■ WINNER: Moorook bowler John White won the Riverland Champion of Champions singles title at Berri last weekend.

Murtho Road track producing fast bike times THE Riverland Cycling Club will host the 2011 Riverland/ Mildura-Coomealla Club Invitational Race at its Murtho Road track on Sunday, April 24. The event starts at the power substation, two kilometres out of Paringa, and involves an out and back ride (50 kilometres for seniors, 30 kilometres for juniors). With prize money of $400 up for grabs, some fast and furious racing is antici-

pated and the Murtho Road track is certainly producing fast times, if last Sunday’s handicap road race is any indication. Excellent handicapping resulted in riders converging into a large bunch towards the finish. In one of the quickest Murtho Road rides on record, Roy Stevens finished ahead of Lee Stevens, who produced fastest time, Chris Gartery and Steve Jaensch.

■ FAST: Riverland Cycling Club riders will be out in force for the invitational race on Murtho Road next month.

Lifting the bar with 16 new state records

■ MIGHTY LIFT: Barmera powerlifting champion Rose Gow was one of several locals to break state records at the Powerlifting SA Annual Memorial competition at Berri at the weeekend. A GOOD crowd watched 11 lifters set 16 new state records at the Powerlifting SA Annual David Graham/Dean Bennett Memorial Competition at the club’s Vitality Health Club, Berri, base on Saturday. That night, Pam Graham, the widow of David, presented the trophies at a presentation dinner at the Cobdogla Club, again attended by a large gathering. Three novice lifters, Chris

Powell (Adelaide), Francis Marlor (Loxton) and Andrew Norris (Berri) took part in their first competition. State records were set in the three lift section, by Barmera’s Rose Gow and Adelaide’s Sean Simpson and David and Clay Wescombe-Down, and in the bench press, by Gale Fiebig (Glossop), Malcolm Barber (Gumeracha), Sheryl Rapson (Winkie) and Don Juers (Kingston-on-Murray).

Independent Football Clubs 2011 Season preview

Season preview PARINGA will be hoping to improve on last season’s fourth placed finish when the 2011 season kicks off. The 2009 premiers are determined more than ever to continue improving, especially with the competition growing stronger. Aarod Westley will again lead the team this season as playing/ coach. The Swans will have a strong foundation of youngsters moving into the senior squad with the likes of Tom Frahn, Tristan Jackson, Dylan Roesler and

Jim Hill all expected to have an impact. With a mix of youth and experience, Paringa has the ammo but will it be able to fire? “We’ve got a pretty young, fit side,” club president Nathan Schumann said. “We’re hoping to be around the mark. “We think we’ve got a pretty good squad and coach who can take us all the way.” With Paringa hosting the grand final, Schumann said the club would love to play in the last day in September.

Recent History Last season’s finish: Fourth 2010 Average Points for

121.14 2010 Average Points Against

However, Schumann is confident the team has many options to cover the competition’s leading goalkicker. “We’re going to be relying on Dean Hill (pictured) stepping up and having an impact,” he said. “We are hoping Steve Lehmann and Nate Rover will help out as well.” The inclusion of former Renmark player Sam Frahn and Lyrup’s Roy Grenfell will also help bolster the Swans’ premiership chances.

WITH Barmera-Monash resigning Wayne Priest, a hole was left in the forward line for the Lions and Lloyd was swift to pounce on Paringa’s Lippis, an ex-Lyrup sharp-shooter. The recruitment of one of Independent football’s renowned goalkickers will provide a mouth-watering forward line combo of Lippis and Wilmott for Lloyd. The club has talented youngsters in Matt Recchia and Tom Smith, who should

How far can Paringa go? THE fight for the top four in the Independent competition is going to go down to the wire this season and Paringa has the calibre of players to finish in the top half. In fact, a top two position is not out of the question but will

“The competition is very even this year and at this stage, we’re aiming to reach the final four,” he said. “Reaching the top two would also be a goal.” There is much class in the Lions’ team and a good mix of young blood, including the likes of reliable defender Brad Healy. The Lions did stutter towards the end of last season and Lloyd will not want that situation to occur again.

X-Factors

86.64

X-Factors ANDREW Lloyd again poses as a threat in the Riverland Independent competition this year. His ability to rove the ball has seen him up amongst the best in the competition in recent years. There are also the likes of Craig Baxter, Adam Forbes, Jono Wood, Nate Rover and Chris Gardner, to name a few. The big loss for the Swans is key forward Anthony Lippis, who has swapped clubs and will play for Lyrup this season.

TAKING a club from bottom to premiers in one season just once is a fairly good achievement but doing it twice is nothing less than freakish. That is exactly what Sam Lloyd did in 2004 and last year, guiding his team to the very top of Independent football. Back to back premierships is an ambition for the Lions but there will be several challenges along the way and Lloyd is not counting his chickens before they hatch.

both feature in Lloyd’s plans for 2011. Jason Marr, Adrian Abdulla and the returning James Abdulla, have, according to Lloyd, trained well in preseason and will play big parts in the Lions’ quest for backto-back flags. “The core group of players, about 14 or 15 of them, are still here,” Lloyd said. “We have a very experienced team.”

How far can Lyrup go?

depend on several factors, including the Swans’ ability to find goalkickers. Paringa will be reliant on its strong midfield and the team has enough players across the ground to beat or take it up to the best sides in the competition.

A MIX of experience, young talent and new prime recruits should give Lyrup a healthy chance of reaching the finals and failure to g get there will be very disappointing for the club. However, that seems unlikely

and it remains solid favourites for back-to-back flags. It will be interesting to see how the Lions go being tagged as one of the favourites and whether they will buckle under pressure or revel in it.

Season preview

Recent History

FOR Moorook-Kingston, the only way is up and new coach Nathan Klingberg is confident of seeing some improvement at the club in 2011. It has been a rough couple of seasons for the Warriors, finishing second bottom in 2010 and with a late coaching appointment, it seemed the new year was to bring no joy either. However, Klingberg believes some good recruiting, the development of some talented juniors and a general lift in enthusiasm will see the club

lift. “I will be happy if we make finals,” Klingberg said. “I think that’s a realistic goal.” The club is hopeful that its youngsters Alex Rapisarda and returning talent Matthew Raison will supplement the pace of Todd Griffen. While Nathan Lister, returning from an ankle injury, can provide a good forward target with that crucial commodity of pinpoint accuracy in front of the big sticks.

Last season’s finish: Eighth 2010 Average Points for

56.14 2010 Average Points Against

X-Factors THE big question for the Warriors is whether Klingberg can develop a competitive unit out of a side that struggled in every department in 2011. Barmera-Monash recruits John Pilla, Kenny Wright and former Warrior Ryan Pietrolaj are all skilful players who will add a lot of depth and flexibility. If the Warriors can build around that trio, see more matches out of gun midfielder/forward Travis Voigt and have ruckman David Hogg (pictured) firing on all cylinders,

they will be more competitive. Whether this is possible, or not, time will tell. Matt Cooper has been a breakout player in recent seasons, while Warriors legend Darran van der Woude will give everything to a club he loves with plenty of passion. The major factor in the Warriors’ rise, though, will be Klingberg’s development as a first year coach. If he gets the right support and the players show the commitment he wants, there will be significant improvement.

Odds Premiership: $15 Wooden spoon: $10

How far can Moorook-Kingston go? INDEPENDENT watchers will view with scepticism comments that Moorook can rise up the ladder with an untried coach and a squad that struggled to just the sole win last season. It would be a fair assumption to make but word is that

Klingberg’s enthusiasm has brought some new life to the club. Realistically though, the MKFC will need many stars to align if it is to play finals again. The players it has picked up will add some much needed

depth, with Pilla and Wright both potential Duthie Medal winners. But, with recruiting at Independent clubs still not finalised, the Warriors will need two or three more quality pickups to meet Klingberg’s lofty

ambitions. This year will see the club competitive again and set the path for success in future seasons and that will still be a very creditable result from the first year coach.

Barmera-Monash Football Club 2011

Recent History

Season preview IT HAS been more than two decades since Barmera-Monash has won a premiership. Last year’s grand final loss would have added to the pain but A grade coach Mark Wilden believes the issue is not something the club is talking about. Instead, the Roos are focused and having retained most of their squad from last season, will be more than determined to be title contenders. “We know what happened last year but we don’t speak about it too much,” Wilden said. “We just want to focus on this year.

Past 10 Positions

“The boys have been working really hard and are keen to do well.” There is plenty of depth right across the field for the Roos. “We think we’ve got a pretty reasonable side, we haven’t lost a great deal,” Wilden said. “The season aim is to be playing finals and finish in the top two. “Hopefully there are 21 guys I can rely on.” With the club’s under 18s premiers last season, expect to see a few young lads step up to A grade level.

X-Factors WHEN it comes to key players, BarmeraMonash boasts several. Topping the list is ball magnet Michael Smart, who again will have many 30 game possessions this season. Jake Smith only managed half a season due to injury and we expect him to have a big year. Simon Peucker has the potential to be a 100 goal full forward and is a vital member of the Roos’ team.

Odds Premiership: $5 Wooden spoon: $10

Ruckman Aaron Nettelbeck had an outstanding 2010 and he will work hard all over the ground. Barmera-Monash’s x-factor is its backline led by Dillon Millard and Simon Maddern. Darren Perry, Matt Leyson (pictured) and Tyson Swanbury all provide run through the middle. The Roos will also blood several youngsters with Mason Middleton, Tyson Lindsay, Tom Oates and Peter Riley all in contention.

Theme Song Red Hot Chilli Peppers Under the Bridge Can Barmera-Monash sweep its recent history under the bridge and finally end the premiership drought?

How far can Barmera-Monash go? A YEAR is a long time in football. Barmera-Monash started last season strong before falling away, only to recover and fall short of the premiership. However, this season is much different. While the player base is relatively unchanged and Wilden remains coach, the club has a renewed outlook. There is no doubt about it, the Roos want a premiership.

One thing Barmera-Monash will want to mend from last season is its inability to win the close games. The team lost important games to Berri and Waikerie by four points and lost momentum after each loss. The Roos are capable of matching it with the best in the Riverland Football League and given the club’s talent on the field again this season, it will be a major flag contender.

All or nothing in cricket final By CALLUM TRIFONOFF RENMARK will go into this weekend’s Riverland Turf Cricket Association grand final as slight underdog but is determined to match it with in-form Loxton. The two teams, who met in the one-day final, won by Loxton earlier in the year, will do battle for the ultimate prize in local cricket, with the home side searching for its first title in a decade. The Royals rejoined the competition this season from the Renmark District Cricket Association, having an immediate impact. Renmark opening bowler Dale Lindner believes his side can overcome the underdog tag to take the flag, especially with a pace attack featuring Luke Fitzsimmons, Daniel Minther and Ben Townsend. “We played them in the last round and they made 150, we fell just 10 runs short,” Lindner said. “I think it’ll be a challenge for us.” Runs have often been hard to come by for Renmark this season,

■ IN FORM: Loxton batsman Brad Walter will be a key player in the grand final. with Derek Stevens, Dylan Thompson and Townsend all needing to fire in the final. On paper, both teams appear evenly matched and without a rain interruption, the final could go down to the wire. “If we bowl and perform at our

best, we should be able to trouble them,” Lindner said. “They’ve got a very strong batting line-up, though, in Michael Gutsche, Brad Walter and Sam Hoffmann.” Loxton has been the big improvers this season and with recent form, will be the favourites this weekend. Walter will be looking to build on his three consecutive half centuries, while Gutsche is an experienced finals campaigner. “We’ve been happy with the build-up to the final so far,” Loxton co-coach and captain Steve Inglis said. “We’ve won our last couple of games and we’ve been improving. “From where we were at the start of the year, as a team, we’ve worked pretty well.” Inglis said there is plenty of talent in both camps to take home the premiership. “Obviously, we have to watch out for their bowlers,” he said. The Tigers also have a strong bowling attack, with brothers Ryan

■ SOLID: Renmark captain Derek Stevens will need to play well if his team is going to upset Loxton in the final.

and Kale Smith bowling superbly, Craig Fisher ever reliable and young spinners Shaun Reilly and Ben Walter producing wickets. Although, Loxton has been dealt a blow with bowler Josh Norman breaking his finger at training this week, seeing Brad Perry added to the squad. Following a season interrupted by rain delays, players from both sides will be hoping there is no repeat of bad weather in the final this weekend. When the rain came down on Sunday, minor premier Berri was

left stranded chasing Renmark’s total of 169 in the semi-final and the Royals progressed through to the grand final, having already won on first innings. Loxton, despite also winning via the wash-out, was in a dominant position in its semi-final against Waikerie-Ramco, reaching 3/160 after 22 overs, needing just 36 to catch the Warriors’ total. In the event of a wash-out on the weekend, Loxton will claim the premiership, having finished higher after the minor round competition.

Rain helps Berri advance to B grade cricket grand final

WEEKEND CRICKET ACTION

TOP two teams Berri and Wunkar will play off in the Riverland B grade cricket grand final this Saturday, after both advanced due to poor weather conditions. Berri compiled 8/145 in its semi-final against Loxton, struggling after the loss of openers Todd Charlton (29) and Matt Hughes (35).

Brian Campbell (44) steadied the innings, while Tristan Graetz picked up an impressive 3/24 with his medium pacers. Loxton was in trouble at 3/24 in tough conditions as rain halted the run-chase. In the other semi-final, Wunkar reached 7/168 with Andrew Searles (35),

Dean Wormald (30) and Jason Griffiths (33) all contributing with the bat. In reply, Barmera Hotel was recovering from a horrible start to reach 4/50 before rain stopped play. Meanwhile, Renmark North won the Renmark District cricket premiership after playing out a thrilling tie with Lyrup.

Berri claims baseball title By CALLUM TRIFONOFF A MATCH-WINNING performance from Nick Kuhn and Gary Branford saw Berri claim its fifth A grade baseball premiership in a row, defeating rivals Barmera 5-2 at Glassey Park on Friday. Winning coach Kuhn was named best on ground after some lightning quick pitching and two safe hits, while Branford set up two runs and helped himself to three safe hits. In a match which saw thrilling action and fiery tempers, Berri triumphed in the top of the seventh inning with Barmera needing three more runs to have any chance of taking it to an eighth. The best the Lakers could do was post two runs, having gone the previous six innings with no score. Warriors stalwart Steven Scott said it was massive honour to win

another premiership. “It’s brilliant for the club to get another (premiership),” Scott said. “We had the under 14s win the grand final as well and this tops off our week.” Other notable performers for Berri were Phil Goldspink (two hits) and Peter Moritz (one run). Barmera had solid performances from Matthew Golding (one safe hit) and Taylor Pay and Marcus Owen (both one run).

■ From Page 44 Venning said the side’s bad patch of form earlier in the year kicked the team back into life. “We were so used to winning games and when we started losing a bit, we thought ‘right, we’ve got to go the extra mile here’,” she said. Cobdogla captain Kelly Chamberlain said her side will take the flag if it can produce a repeat of its preliminary final form. “We started off the season a little bit slow but we came good during the year and got the numbers,” Chamberlain said. “When the split happened, we knew we could get to the grand final.” Cobdogla has the players to take the flag with Jo Gregory, Brodie Fridd, Jodie Sullivan and Brett Anderson all playing key roles in the Eagles’ run to the final. “The players we have to watch out for would definitely be Cara (Venning) and Haylee Symens,” Chamberlain said. “They’ve been great this year and will be hard to stop this week.” Meanwhile, in the B grade grand final, Gerard will play Lyrup. Gerard won through to the final after comfortably defeating Waikerie 10-0 in the second semi-final and will require strong performances from Tyson Lindsay and Cora Johnson to take out the flag. Lyrup’s Cheri Healy and Ashley Whellum played well in the preliminary final and will aim to stop the Gerard cause. In the C grade grand final, Berri’s young stars in Austin and Kenny Karpany will square off against Waikerie’s Bradley Howell and Lori Hocking in what should be an entertaining clash.

By BRAD PERRY BARMERA-Monash A grade coach Mark Wilden has quashed claims the club will struggle for seconds players this season. While the 2010 B grade runners-up have lost up to six players, including Kenny Wright, Ryan Pietrolaj and John Pilla to Moorook-Kingston, Wilden said a number of players from the under 18s premiership side will make the step to senior level and fill any losses. “You always get a few who will come in and out,” he said. “In the twos, we’ve still got our veterans for sure and we will have some kids there. “A lot of those juniors have played A grade footy.” Wilden said up to nine of last year’s under 18 premiership players will play senior football this season and he will be keeping an eye on how they perform in the B grade competition. “There are a few (young players) I am looking at,” Wilden said. The most notable loss from the club’s junior talent pool is Zac Bates (pictured above), who will test his talent in the SANFL this season.

Berri’s big baseball win

Loxton’s back to back hunt By CALLUM TRIFONOFF

CUP BATTLE

AFTER one of the closest Riverland Softball Association seasons in recent times, Loxton and Cobdogla will play off in this Friday night’s A grade grand final at Glassey Park. After a convincing win over Berri in the preliminary final, Cobdogla will be out to avenge its 11-0 loss to Loxton in the last match of the season. Since the A, B and C grades split towards the end of the year, Berri, Cobdogla and Loxton could not be separated in the minor rounds, all recording victories over each other, but it was the Strikers (Loxton) who progressed through to the grand final by virtue of having gained the minor premiership. Loxton pitcher Cara Venning, who recently won the association’s best and fairest award, said she has faith in her team-mates to deliver yet another premiership to the club. “(Association runner-up best and fairest) Haylee Symens would have to be our key player, she’s been a great catcher and a great all-round performer,” Venning said. “Jodi Hobbs has come back to form this year and Tyson Renshaw has adapted to the game and is enjoying it.” ■ Continued Page 36
