A DATE WITH IRAQ â– TRIAL: Gurra Downs date grower Dave Reilly welcomes overseas investment in the industry.

THE State Government is in talks with oil-rich Iraq about potentially investing “millions of dollars� into the Riverland date industry. The $20 million Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund may be used to help leverage investment in the region from the Middle East. Gurra Downs date grower Dave Reilly has welcomed interest from Iraq to possibly expand


BRAD PERRY the small Riverland date industry following a meeting this week between State Agriculture Minister Michael O’Brien and Iraqi ambassador Mouayed Saleh. “We’re definitely interested in listening,� Mr Reilly said.

“If there is an opportunity for investment into our industry, it would assist our program.� Currently the date farm has received funding from the Rural Industry Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC) to extend trial plantings for new varieties over a three year period. Mr Reilly said dates are suited to the Riverland climate and have the potential to grow in larger allotments and supply year-round

fruit overseas. State Agriculture Minister Michael O’Brien said Mr Reilly will be used as a “go to point� in further discussions about the possible investment. “I’d like discussions to start within the next couple of months if there is an opportunity,� Minister O’Brien said. ■Continued Page 3

Date investment welcomed THE NEWS of a potential investment in the Riverland date industry totalling millions of dollars is fantastic for the region. The Riverland name was raised during a conversation at lunch between State Agriculture Minister Michael O’Brien and Iraqi ambassador Mouayed Saleh. Gurra Downs date growers Dave and Anita Reilly became a topic of conversation because Minister O’Brien believed, “what Dave and Anita Reilly are doing with the date palms struck me as an obvious area Iraq would be interested in”. The Iraqi ambassador was straight away interested at the thought of dates, a staple food in his country. Not only is it a popular Middle Eastern food but there is huge potential in the Riverland for such an investment. Many local growers are reliant on citrus crops and with minimal prices this season, there is much reason to suggest growers would be interested in trying something different such as dates. One thing we must remember though is not to get our hopes up. At this stage, the interest appears to be nothing more than discussions over lunch. I wonder whether Minister O’Brien was eating sticky date pudding?

COUPLES who announce their engagement through the classified section of the Riverland Weekly will now receive a copy of the region’s latest wedding guide, Riverland Bride. The magazine was launched at the Riverland Bridal Expo on Sunday and is available by simply placing an engagement notice. Photography by Visage owner Tracey Powell said it is great to be able to provide newly engaged couples with the high quality publication. “Even in this day and age of social media, having an official annoucement in the newspaper is still a lovely way of sharing the exciting news,” she said.



Disability facility a welcome relief RENMARK is home to a new supported accommodation facility for people living with disabilities. Minister for Disability Jennifer Rankine was on hand at the weekend to officially open the house, which will provide accommodation for four people. The fit out of the home was funded by $30,000 from the Department for Families and Communities and $335,000 was allocated for Community Living and Support Service (CLASS) to provide ongoing care for the

residents. Minister Rankine said the home is a fantastic service for people with disabilities in the Riverland. “It is great to see regional communities coming together and working collaboratively to provide such a great support service for these people,” Ms Rankine said. “The four people who will live in this home are part of a much broader program to deliver care and support to even more people with a disability across our state.”

Citrus judge rewarded ONE of two to be recognised for lengthy contributions to the Royal Adelaide Show is Peter Gallasch of Loxton. After 20 years of judging citrus entries at the show, Peter received long service awards on August 19 at the showgrounds. Peter said he would like more growers to help out with the judging at the show. “Exhibitors are becoming more skilful in their presentation,” he said. “I think the competition is good for promoting better standards in the

industry.” Royal Agriculture and Horticulture Society president and Citrus Board member Richard Fewster praised Peter’s efforts. He said his efforts have reflected the many hundreds of volunteers who have helped make the Royal Adelaide Show the second largest of its kind in Australia. “The dedication and expertise of Peter has provided SA’s citrus growers with a platform to measure their skills and improve the quality of the product,” Mr Fewster said.

NO appointment necessary

Small school future By BRAD PERRY A SENIOR education official believes the parents of the students remaining at Lyrup Primary School must be asking themselves whether their child is getting the best education with less than a handful of students attending the school. During a visit to the region on Tuesday, newly appointed Department of Education head of schools Gary Costello said questions must continue to be asked as to whether the school needs to remain open. Under current State Government laws, the final decision for the future of the school remains with the establishment itself. “I would have to question the wisdom of having a school with four students in it because I think there are so many things that students benefit from by having a mix of genders and a wide range of other people that they mix with,” Mr

Costello said. “Government policy is the final decision rests with that community and I think the vital question to keep asking is, is a school with four students in it really going to offer the best education for my child? “I think that’s the question I hope that people are focusing on.”

of the state. “In the other school, they are starting to say ‘maybe it would be better for my children to have a wider range of curriculum, a wider range of people they interact with’ and so they are heading down a track of probably suggesting that they close and their children are looked after somewhere else.”

I would have to question the wisdom of having a school with four students. Mr Costello said other schools across the state with minimal students have been forced to consider closing. “Interestingly enough, there are other parts of the state who have more than that but still not large, eight to 10 students, and they are now starting to seriously question whether they would be better working with another school in another part

Discussions are also continuing into the amalgamation of Renmark Junior Primary and Renmark Primary, two schools Mr Costello visited during his time in the region. “Their community is still working through it and they haven’t made a final decision,” Mr Costello said. “There are not a lot of places left now where you have a junior

primary and a primary on the one site and there probably are significant benefits that could flow from it in terms of one less transition point for students. “In the end, they’ve got to make the decision they think is in the best interests of their students.” During Mr Costello’s two day visit he went to schools in Renmark, Glossop, Loxton and Waikerie. He said he was very impressed with the facilities and students, teachers and principals he met. “There are some outstanding public schools in the Riverland, the public education system (in the Riverland) is in very, very good hands and part of what my agenda is, is to try and get that improvement to continue so no parent ever has to worry about the quality of what’s available in public education or feel they’ve got to pay a lot of money to get their kids a good education.”

Iraq considers Riverland date investment ■ From Page 1 A significant investment in date crops in the Riverland could provide the support the region needs to move forward, according to Minister O’Brien. “It’s a very popular fruit through large areas of the world and we’ve got an ideal climate here in South Australia and we want to get a little bit of economic return on water,” Minister O’Brien said. “With Iraq’s expertise, partic-

ularly large scale plantation management, their knowledge of the Middle Eastern tastes and their knowledge of the market place, it could well be that we could set up quite a significant industry in the Riverland. “ It could ultimately constitute a very, very significant industry for the Riverland in sitting alongside citrus in terms of importance.” Minister O’Brien said the more alternative crops for the Riverland, the better. “The smart thing to do is to

spread your risk over as many crops as you can and this is a good way to spread that risk and it makes a lot of sense,” he said. “What we will do at a State Government level is we will continue to facilitate discussions and ultimately try to get some Iraqi investment.” Dates are a popular food in Iraq but the crop is seasonal, so investment in the Riverland would provide a strong market. Mr Reilly grows a well eaten Iraq date called barhi, which he

said suits the Riverland conditions perfectly, surviving through hot, cold and drought. “It happens to be that one of the two best varieties is this Iraqi variety, the barhi have been very robust and vigorous,” he said. Minister O’Brien said joint ventures with Iraq have potential. “It was a preliminary discussion but the ambassador was quite interested because it is a slightly different investment perspective,” he said.

■ HOPEFUL: Barmera United Soccer Club president Jim Wallace is hopeful the club can move to the former Riverland greyhound track. Photo: JANE WILSON

Barmera soccer on track to coming home By BRAD PERRY BARMERA United Soccer Club is deep in discussions with the Berri Barmera Council about using the recently defunct greyhound track as a home ground. After funding was cut to continue racing greyhounds at the Barmera track, the club has moved quickly to show interest in using the facility. Currently the club, which has a large number of teams and a growing player list,

uses Berri's grounds for home games and president Jim Wallace said the club needs its own facilities. “We are the biggest club in the Riverland and we are the only club that doesn't have a home ground,” he said. While work will need to be carried out on the greyhound facilities to bring them up to standard for the club, Mr Wallace said by usingthe former track, it will not become an “eyesore”.

“There is going to be a fair bit of work to be done to get pitches up to scratch and then we are going to take away the dog track and reseal it all (and) there will be extensions onto irrigation that's got to be done,” he said. “If we don't move in will just be left and after six months, it will be a total eyesore.” Mr Wallace said soccer was played on the middle of the greyhound track in the past and remaining irrigation infrastructure is a bonus. “All the sprinklers are still there, so we might just have to extend

them a bit further,” he said. If the club can find a home at the former greyhound track, Mr Wallace said the club will continue to grow. “II reckon reck you will see the

Talks between the Berri Barmera Council and the club appear to be moving forward with another meeting scheduled for September 13.

As soon as the council say ‘yes, we can go ahead’ we will be in there. club just go from strength to strength,” he said. “We'd be very hopeful of (starting there) next season and at the very least, we'd be having all our trainings and pre-games there. “As soon as the council say 'yes, we can go ahead', we will be in there.”

Berri Barmera Mayor Peter Hunt said there are some loose ends to tie up with the greyhound track closure before the soccer club can push forward with its ideas. “At the present time, we are having various meetings to determine what the

greyhounds can sell and the responsibility council has,” he said. “If all goes to plan, that would be an ideal situation for the soccer club to takeover. “If that does happen, we could probably see a lot of beautification around that area. “Parents (of junior soccer members) would like to get out there and do a lot of the work themselves.” Mr Hunt said council has not ruled out other sports such as baseball sharing the facilities. “We are certainly looking at it at the moment but no decisions have been made,” he said.

By BRAD PERRY THE final Advance Tourism report is expected to be released to Riverland councils next week, four months after its original deadline. One of the main points expected to be made in the final report is the need to bring an experienced person from interstate to help the local tourism industry push forward. Advance Tourism director Norm White said there are several points in his final report which can be implemented in the short term. “If it goes to the new board, my expectation is that a lot of the recommendations are very much designed to achieve, in the short term, a quick boost to cash flows,” he said. “In the long term to ensure that the industry never gets back into this crisis again there is a plan, which is built around bringing people into the region from outside of

South Australia. (They will have) knowledge to work with the industry, to put in place the campaigns and the initiatives that are designed to strengthen the capabilities of the tourism businesses as well as the destination marketing organisation.” Mr White said an ideal solution will be for an interstate “livewire leader” to be employed to help Riverland tourism in the future. Interim Riverland Tourism Board member and Renmark Paringa Council Mayor Neil Martinson said waiting for the final report before pushing ahead with future plans was not an option. Mr Martinson said the community has been proactive and has pushed forward with plans for the industry as it seeks to fill positions on a new board. “We’ve already been proactive and started making moves to try and sort out

tourism for the Riverland and depending on what’s in the actual report, I think we’ve already started on that way and we will continue on the way we have started ourselves,” Mr Martinson said. “(As) we don’t know what exactly is in the report, it is hard to say whether we will pick up on some of those things or not.” Mr Martinson said hiring the tourism consultant has made the Riverland community think about its future direction. “It has kick started tourism in the Riverland anyway,” he said. “So in a sense, you could say he has done his work by making us think about what we are going to do in relation to our branding and where Riverland tourism is going to go. “The industry needs to make sure they get (value) for their dollar and they need to drive it more than anybody.”

This is heaven for famous author By BRAD PERRY THE way the Riverland Punjabi community live their lives will be documented across more than 30 countries following a visit from a prestigious writer last week. Joginder Kundi, who has worked in many forms of media, published 35 books and currently writes regular columns for 34 newspapers across the world, visited the local Punjabi community to share some of his wisdom and observe the local way of life. After being invited to the region, Mr Kundi was honoured by the local Punjabi community for his literature achievements. Mr Kundi's story is a remarkable one, where he was stuck in a court job in India before reporting on corruption and eventually making a name for himself through several forms of literature. The visit to the Riverland will also be

documented in a book about his visit to Australia, according to Mr Kundi. “This is heaven,” he told the Riverland Weekly in Renmark. He said he is proud of the local people and how they conduct themselves. “They work hard and achieve a lot of things and I am proud of that,” Mr Kundi said. Local Sikh community member Harvinder Singh said it was an honour to have Mr Kundi in the Riverland. “Myself and the Punjabi community feel proud to have the privilege for him to come and visit us,” Mr Singh said. The exposure the region will receive is also a bonus of Mr Kundi's visit. “It gives the exposure of the Riverland community and how people live over here and what they do and to show we are proud of it,” Mr Singh said. “Some people have never heard about the Riverland.”

Loxton perfect location to host vanilla slice comp By BRAD PERRY

■ READY: Renmark Paringa Tourism Association chairman Allan Carthew is optimistic a busy period for tourism operators is on its way. Photo: JANE WILSON

Tourism operators brace for huge summer By BRAD PERRY RIVERLAND tourism operators are receiving large amounts of bookings and interest for the coming summer with some houseboat companies already fully booked for the warmer period. Tourism operators along the river are suggesting this summer could be one of the busiest in recent years. Above Renmark Houseboats owner Tom Freeman said houseboats

have been booked well in advance with the positive word about the summer period spreading outside the region. “It’s terrific there is water in the river now and the word will spread and hopefully there is some good times for the Riverland ahead,” he said. “The future optimism is good...but looking forward into summer, I think everyone is pretty excited about seeing all the boats move and lots of people around.

“It’s going to be a huge summer and a huge Easter.” For many local accommodation outlets, the winter period was boosted by pickers in the region and Mr Freeman said that was an added bonus. Renmark Paringa Tourism Association chairman Allan Carthew said he is optimistic a big summer is on the way. “I expect it to be quite good this summer,” he said. “There is a lot of talk

about water in the river. “The tourism operators rely on the summer time really to make ends meet. “I think for everybody’s sake, we hope there will be a really good number of people here at the end of the year around Christmas time.” Early predictions are that it is going to be a hot summer in the Riverland but Mr Carthew said we should still be prepared in case the river does rise again with rains interstate.

THE Riverland would be the perfect place to host the Great Australian Vanilla Slice Triumph, according to a former entrant and judge. With Ouyen to host its final vanilla slice meet tomorrow, Loxton baker Tim Vivian, who judged the competition for a decade, said there was the idea to bring the popular event to the region. “They’re thinking about taking it further into Victoria, it’s starting to get too far away to enter,” he said. “I wanted to keep it in the Mildura region or even bring it

across to Loxton. “I toyed with the idea but I don’t think a decision has been made and we’ll have to wait and see where they’re going to hold it.” Mr Vivian said the competition could bring a lot of benefits to Loxton and the region. “It’s good to be amongst fellow bakers who are producing a quality product,” he said. “I think competitions are really good for the baking industry because it keeps you on top of your game.” ■ Grab a vanilla slice in the Riverland’s very own Vanilla Slice Day tomorrow.

Illegal grain dump concern

I’ve no intentions of ever shifting. I’d like to stay in the town as long as possible.


■ TOWN MEMORIES: Barmera resident Max Scholz has lived in Barmera since 1962 and can remember the past fondly as the town celebrates its 90th birthday today. Photo: FILE

Barmera has 90 reasons to celebrate By CALLUM TRIFONOFF TODAY marks the 90th anniversary of the town of Barmera, which has a more fascinating history than some people would think. One man who has seen the town grow and change is Max Scholz. Mr Scholz has lived in Barmera since 1962, after having moved from Loveday, where he had lived since 1935. He remembers all of the old attractions in the town, some of which are now defunct. “The railway line has been taken away and there’s houses built there (now),” he said. “Out by the golf course, that was the old rubbish dump. “One of the sad points of the town is that the Barmera (Co-operative) packing sheds has closed.” Mr Scholz also remembers the main street, which was slightly different

compared to today. “The reason the main street was made so wide is because, right down the middle where the lawn is, that was a creek,” he said. “They wanted it overlooking the lake and so the horses and carts could go either side of the creek.” Mr Scholz has been a community minded person since he first set foot in the town, joining various community organisations. “I’ve been a member of the Rotary Club here in Barmera, I was responsible for the Neighbourhood Watch starting,” he said. “I’ve also been involved in the men’s Probus Club.” Barmera is the perfect town for Mr Scholz, who said he would never leave. “I’ve no intentions of ever shifting, I’d like to stay in the town for as long as possible,” he said.

THE illegal dumping of contaminated grain may become widespread unless more disposal options are made available. With mice and weather impacting the last harvest, there has been reports of increasing damaged grain filling landfills. However, with the Environment Protection Authority reviewing landfill regulations, there is concern landfills will no longer accept contaminated grain. In a report to the Murray Mallee Local Government Association, the Southern Mallee District Council said it has been told by Viterra to accept grain that is claimed to be contaminated into its waste management facility. “While the requests by Viterra are manageable to date, council believes the issue of contaminated grain has the potential to increase if the mouse plague returns and better than average har-

vest is managed via bunker systems next season,” the report said. “Some councils have policies which don’t allow commercial or industrial waste into their waste receival facilities. “If there is no agreed process, there is the risk of unregulated or unauthorised disposal of contaminated grain to unauthorised disposal sites if no formal receiving facility is available.” Murray Mallee Local Government Association president Leon Stasinowsky said the group is working with local councils to see how much contaminated grain farmers are accruing. “The point being is that when there has only been a small amount of wastage... dumps have taken that and it hasn’t been a problem,” Mr Stasinowsky said. “With the mouse problems and all the bunkers and stuff around, there could be quite a few semi-trailer loads of wasted (grain).

“With all the rain and damaged stuff there, they think it is probably going to fill dumps up a lot quicker.” Where the damaged grain can be taken also depends on its contamination, according to Mr Stasinowsky. “That (badly contaminated grain) certainly is a problem and it would have to be taken somewhere and buried,” he said. “It is something we are going to have to work through and work through fairly quickly because those bunkers (where damaged grain is being stored) should be getting emptied out now for next harvest.” Mr Stasinowsky said he is unsure whether the proposed Riverland Regional Waste Management Facility at Monash will accept contaminated grain. The Southern Mallee Council believes an option is for Viterra to review its waste or contaminated grain disposal to enable better recycling of waste.

Sad end for croquet club By CALLUM TRIFONOFF WAIKERIE Croquet Club secretary Norma Modistach said the closure of the club is “like a death in the family”. For 83 years, the club has held croquet seasons but in recent years, has struggled for membership and player numbers. Mrs Modistach said croquet is a highly skilled game which needs younger players to be able to learn how to play. “The (Waikerie) High School children used to come over every year (to play), they quite enjoyed it,” she said. “We just played a single form of croquet but nobody ever took it up. “I think it is a shame that it’s closed but we just couldn’t attract players. “When we did, some of them were a little bit too old to learn.” Mrs Modistach said previous family fun days,

held to attract new players, did not make any difference. “We have tried and tried and tried,” she said. “It didn’t matter what you did, they just weren’t interested.” According to Mrs Modistach, it is highly unlikely that the closure of the club is only temporary. “If they (were to bring it back), they’d have to start from scratch again,” she said. “They’ve got rid of all the equipment, it’s unlikely.” Despite the sad closure, the club has many good memories. “We had a very good fellowship with the players, whoever came here,” Mrs

Modistach said. “We used to have a Miss Waikerie competition held at the club, as well and going away to the different tournaments, you met new people.” Mrs Modistach is confident the end of the Waikerie club will not spell the end for others around South Australia. “There was a club in Adelaide, they got down to three players and considered closing,” she said. “Then a daughter of one of the players got some friends and had an afternoon and night of play and I think the membership went from three to 27 in just a couple of weeks.”


How often should I service my car? IT can be confusing for some people as vehicle manufacturers’ recommended service schedules have changed quite a lot over the years, from every 1000 miles to 5000 kilometres and 10,000kms now to 15,000 kms plus intervals. This has been brought about because of advances in lubricant and filtration technology and precise combustion control through electronic fuel injection, reducing the amount of oil contamination etc. For example, you now can’t drive the car to the shopping centre and forget to push the choke in anymore. Manufacturers are also extending service intervals to make the vehicle more attractive to fleet companies that purchase a large percentage of new cars but sell them before the high cost of servicing and maintaining the vehicles is required. These extended intervals work under ideal conditions in a perfect world.

This is why it is important to carefully read the owner’s handbook as it will recommend more frequent, intermediate, safe guard services at 6 monthly or 7,500kms intervals, when driven under service conditions. Severe conditions are when cars are driven for short distances, have frequent stop/start trips, are only driven to church on Sundays, are used for towing or driven in dusty conditions etc. This is why most automotive workshops often mark a recommended intermediate service on the service reminder sticker on the top corner of your windscreen. Many cars also have some kind of service reminder system on the odometer to alert the driver of the main scheduled service. The main message is to be aware of these things and keep the car regularly serviced so it doesn’t fall into a state of costly repair.

Inspiring chefs to impress THE Riverland Field Days are fast approaching and this year the culinary talents of Riverland high school students will be on the menu. A competition between the high schools will see the students design a healthy menu which they will present at live cooking demonstrations over four time-slots at the Field Days. Hosting the cooking sessions will be Themis Chryssidis from Sprout, a new Adelaide based business that provides interactive cooking classes to help people learn about cooking with healthy foods.

The demonstrations are about education on healthy cooking, eating and lifestyle.

Both Themis and his business partner 2010 MasterChef runnerup Callum Hann have been in the Riverland this week to inspire students at all four high schools to get into the kitchen and make healthy food choices. Callum said Sprout’s cooking classes gave students the “heads up” from a nutritional point of view and suggested by cooking themselves, they were more likely to try new foods. “We are making a couple of well balanced meals to show students how easy it is,” Mr Hann said. “Fussy eaters are less likely to

try new foods but if they make it themselves, they are more likely to try it.” He said treats are acceptable in moderation. “When you make something yourself, you make better decisions about what ingredients to use. “Moderation is the key. “You can make better informed decisions about what you eat if you are better educated. Riverland Field Days secretary Tim Grieger is excited about the new direction being taken with the cooking demonstrations. “The demonstrations are about education on healthy cooking, eating and lifestyle,” Mr Grieger said. “It’s a fun and educational and by starting at school level, it gives the kids an important start to life. “But it’s relevant to the whole community not just the schools. “The awareness of healthy eating is something we can all pick up. “Healthy, balanced cooking is for everybody and it can be easy.” Apart from Sprout’s cooking demonstrations, new features to this year’s Riverland Field Days will be the Tech Hub with all things new in information technology and The Grain Line which will focus on exhibits for dryland farmers. With forecasters predicting bumper seasons for grape growers and dryland farmers alike, the Field Days, being held on September 14 and 15, should not be missed.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dream realised FOR MANY years the committee and myself, as president of the SA Drug Free Powerlifting Association Inc, have had a wish to host a national competition in South Australia and especially in the Riverland. This wish came to fruition on August 6 at the Renmark Club with great success, thanks to our generous sponsors. After refusal for government grants over four years, we all but gave up. Then our private sponsors came to our rescue. Powerlifting SA would like to thank all of our sponsors: Vitality Health Club, Riverland Houseboat Construction - Brian and Fran Marlor, Jonathan Ellis Podiatry, Accu Weigh, Pam Graham, Mullers Meat Store, Renmark Club, Renmark Hotel, Tri State Graphics, Premier Sports, Berri Crash Repairs and Riverland Radiators for their financial support and the Riverland press and media for their coverage

of the event. Our interstate guests were most impressed with the Riverland and the river itself. All those in attendance indicated they would love to come back at some stage in the future, which is what our area needs. We, the committee, still have a smile on our faces for a dream realised. Thank you everyone for your support. Don Juers, president, SA Drug Free Powerlifting Association

No consequence? MINISTER Albanese ridiculed them in Parliament dismissing them as a ‘convoy of no consequence’ and members of the government laughed. City-centric politicians, ignorant of where their food comes from, laughed at truck drivers and growers who were participating in the convoy to travel to Canberra to air their grievances.


Have your say about the issues that affect you.

Senator Brown smirked to the media. There’s a world food crisis and Australia’s food security is at risk due to government policies. Government’s actions are sending Australian growers and transport operators broke. Protesters travelled thousands of kilometres in big rigs and small, and some family cars and caravans, and along the route people gathered to wave and cheer them on. Minister Albanese dared to sneer at the ‘pensioners’ in the convoy; age pensioner grandparents are valued, unpaid workers in many farming families, legitimate protesters. Two hundred protesters were dismissed by the minister as of ‘no consequence’. Others calculated the cost and decided they could not afford to join the convoy. So the ‘convoy of no confidence’ protest wasn’t as big as it might have been but the crisis of confidence it expressed is evident in rural and regional communities where producers are battling

low returns, escalating government taxes and regional businesses are closing. The actions are appalling arrogance of a city-centric government that doesn’t understand about seasons. That does not understand a whole year’s work has been for nothing once the one and only seasonal sales opportunity for live cattle exports has passed and a whole year’s income lost. Self-employed people of modest means, whose livelihoods are at risk, travelled thousands of kilometres to Canberra to protest the carbon tax and a lost season of live exports and their government laughed at them. Jeanette Staehr, Barmera

WHEN I was young and very small, I saw my dad as ten foot tall. Hadn’t he been a soldier brave and fought the whole

wide world to save? If I had bad dreams in the night, he’d come right in and hold me tight and when I had splinters or hurt my knee, he’d fix things up and comfort me. When to my teens at length I grew, I was surprised how little dad knew. He didn’t understand at all, about life’s problems, large or small. He was such a muddler and always late, all of his opinions were out of date. On religion and politics arguments ranged and although I was righ,t he just wouldn’t change. Then later I married and grandchildren three, soon happily clustered around his knee and I smiled to myself as I heard him tell, the tales of old that I knew so well. I knew that his wisdom far surpassed, anything I had believed in the past. He was grey-haired by then and slowed from a fall but to me once again, Dad stood ten foot tall. Peg Mortimer, Berri


Very important prom tips for girls  Less is always more. n When in doubt, go for the simpler style choice. Whether it is your hair, jewelry, dress, make-up, or shoes, go simple. That way your overall look will be the focus of attention, not on a single item that overpowers your outfit. n Monochromatic color choices are the way to go. Choose dresses that are all one colour. If it does not look too busy, you will look your best.

n Hairstyles today are much more casual than before. The days of hairspray and loads of bobby pins are thankfully over. A loose coil of hair worn at the base of the head with small strands allowed to waft free is both flattering and practical for a country prom on a hot night. n Keep jewellery to a minimum. If you want to wear a single knockout piece of jewellery, earrings that dangle are the choice of most of the stars at the award shows currently.

n Black always looks great. It is chic and formal, no matter what the style choice. It is hard to go wrong in black. As always, Logies and Oscar nights are a fun way to watch and see what the latest trends are. Use the stars choices as suggestions, and then go out and try lots of dresses, hairstyles, and jewellery and choose what looks best on you. Sourced from

Prom is the word for Micaela ONE of the biggest occasions in the life of a student is prom night. The chance to get formally dressed up and gather with school-mates is a rare opportunity. For Glossop High School student Micaela Affleck, prom preparation is an exciting time. “I love it,” she said. “It’s a great way to get everyone together with friends.” Many of the girls have already started to book hair and make-up appointments. “I plan to book in early and maybe have my hair and makeup done a bit further apart,” Micaela said.

Inspired by her sister Carly’s prom dress, Micaela will soon search for her perfect gown. “I am going to look for a long one,” she said. “Maybe in pink or purple.” There are a number of other little things that girls do to prepare for prom including buying shoes to match the dress and a number of days before, applying a fake tan. Micaela said booking in early for prom preparation makes good sense. “I’d say as soon as you can,” she said. “It is never too early to book, even if it is at the beginning of the year.”

This Father’s Day, Renmark’s Max Burr will...

Father’s Day quotes “I am indebted to my father for living but to my teacher for living well.” - Alexander the Great

Off ccou O course ours ou rse we we aare ree worried but lot wo orrrrie rie i d bu b ut a lo ot of of tthe he he time wee ne never know time me w n vveer kn ver now w where going. wherre he wh he iiss go g in ng g..

“A new father quickly learns that his child invariably comes to the bathroom at precisely the times when he’s in there, as if he needed company. The only way for this father to be certain of bathroom privacy is to shave at the gas station.” - Bill Cosby “I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.” - Sigmund Freud

■ COMMITTED: Ex-Riverlander Major General Rick Burr, pictured in Afghanistan, where he has been fighting the war on terror. His father Max (picturd below), will be thinking of him this Father’s Day.

Spare a thought for our servicemen “Being a local boy, it’s something to look back on his achievements through school and the positions he’s been given in his military life,” Max said. “It makes one feel very proud, of course.” Major General Burr is a Riverland boy at heart and when he returns home to visit the family, Max said he likes to spend some time on the river. “He likes to catch up with some of his mates and do some of the things he used to do before he went away,” Max said. There is still a long way to go on the war on terror, according to Max. “I think the job is only half done,” he said. “I believe what they are doing over there is training the Afghanis up and apparently that’s going very well. “We can’t get out of there. “There is no point walking away yet.” So wherever you are celebrating Father’s Day on Sunday, spare a thought for Major General Burr and the other men and women fighting the war on terror.

By BRAD PERRY THIS Father’s Day Renmark’s Max Burr knows he will not see his son but he understands. There is every possibility Major General Rick Burr will be in the Middle East helping to fight the war on terrorism. It is a reality which Max and his family have learnt to deal with after Major General Burr’s decision to move from the Riverland and join the military some years ago. Currently Major General Burr is in charge of the First Division, based in Brisbane, and is on call to re-engage in the war on terror after returning from the Middle East last week. Max said the family is very proud of his achievements but at the same time there is always concern about his wellbeing, especially considering a rising number of Australians have been killed in action in recent months. “Of course we are worried but a lot of the time we never know where he is going until he has got back,” Max said. “There is always a concern, it’s

one of those things. “It is the life he has chosen and we know a fair bit of what he has been through as far as his training goes and they are always very careful and wary of what goes on.” Despite the danger, Max said he is very proud to have a son serving his country.


“Any man can be a father but it takes someone special to be a dad.” - Anne Geddes

“A truely rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty “ - Author unknown “When I was a kid, I said to my father one afternoon, ‘Daddy, will you take me to the zoo?’ He answered, ‘If the zoo wants you, let them come and get you.’” - Jerry Lewis “Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance.” - Ruth E Renkel “A father carries pictures where his money used to be. “ - Author unkown “It is much easier to become a father than to be one.” - Kent Nerburn

“By the time a man realises that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong.” - Charles Wadsworth “My father taught me to work; he did not teach me to love it.” - Abraham Lincoln

Proud father of tennis star By JANE WILSON MOST fathers are proud of their children but there are not too many Riverland dads that can lay claim to having an international tennis superstar for a son. Mick Saville is not a man of many words but there is no denying the pride he as for his son Luke, the reigning Junior Boys Wimbledon Champion. “The best Father’s Day present he could give me is to win this comp he’s in in Canada,” Mick said. “He’s primed to do it, he’s hitting a good ball. “The Canadian Junior Open is a big deal because just about every kid that competes in the US Open goes to this comp beforehand.” Mick said Luke is confident he can continue with his winning streak. “It’s a big ask to win six or seven games on the trot but he believes he can do it and it’ll be good for him to continue. Mick is in awe of the confidence Luke demonstrated in front of the media after winning Wimbledon. “I don’t know where he gets his confidence in front of the media from,” he said. “He can mix it up with the adults and do it with such ease, it all comes so natural to him. “But then he will spend time

with kids when he visits the Riverland and he is great with them too and they think a lot of him.” Mick said that Luke’s recent success was embarrassing in the initial moments. “I was embarrassed at first but then I thought, with all of the doom and gloom, it was great to have some good news.” After many years living separate lives, father and son still manage to maintain a strong bond. “He’s been away for 10 years now so I haven’t lived with him for a long time,” Mick said. “I speak to him every night to see how he’s going and what he’s been doing. “He’s only 17 and although he’s independent, I still like to keep in touch and let him know I’m here for him. “I think he knows that though because of all the money I send him,” Mick added with a laugh. When asked about Father’s Day, Mick said it was never anything they had made an effort to celebrate. “I’m pretty sure Luke won’t ring me for Father’s Day because we’ve never made a real big deal about it. “Although that’s not fair,” Mick added. “He probably will because his mother will tell him to.”

Kids’ view With Father’s Day coming up this Sunday, the Riverland Weekly asked kids at Barmera Primary School some questions about their dad. Max Jericho, 6. Q: Who is your dad’s favourite football team? A: The Crows. Jaymi Rogers, 6. Q: What is the one thing you love about your dad? A: My dad always plants seeds with me.

Ethan Sampson, 6. Q: What does your dad enjoy most? A: Flying toy planes and helicopters. Mercedes Knight, 6. Q: How would you describe your dad in one word? A: He’s funny.

First smiles for new dad By CALLUM TRIFONOFF CELEBRATING his first Father’s Day, Loxton’s Richard Coote is thrilled to have the opportunity to be called a dad. With wife Natalie giving birth to Sebastian eight weeks ago, Richard said the birth has given him a new lease on life and is looking forward to sharing his first Father’s Day on Sunday with his son. “As a first time dad, I’m probably a bit later than

normal, not in my mid 20s like some,� he laughed. “I think everything about being a father will be great. “Everything over the past 12 months has been amazing.� Having moved from Queensland last year, Richard and Natalie have been fortunate enough to both acquire jobs as teachers at local schools. Richard said when he comes home after a tough day with students at school, Sebastian brightens up his day.

“He’s just started smiling and when I walk through the door and see him smiling, it just feels great,� he said. Despite the duties of a parent being hard work, especially with newborns, Richard said it is more than worth it. “I just love everything about being a dad, it’s a brand new experience� he said. “I love helping out Natalie too with the feeding and changing of the nappies, it’s a real joy.�

Caitlin Drake, 6. Q: What does your dad do for a job? A: He does a cubby house sometimes. Brock Nolan 6. Q: What is the most fun you’ve had with your dad? A: When he builds something for me.

Riverland’s mental health boost THE State Government has announced Renmark’s Chaffey Community Centre will be the beneficiary of funding for Mental Health Week in October. With more than $20,000 on offer, the, funding was distributed amongst 18 regional organisations. The centre will receive $1400 to create a treasure hunt with puzzle pieces delivering the message of the importance of mental health. Meanwhile, the Shadow Minister for Ageing and Mental Health Senator Concetta FierravantiWells and Member for Baker Patrick Secker held a mental health forum in Loxton yesterday. The pair visited aged care facilities and held a forum as part of an aged care and mental health tour of Barker.

OLOR’s 75th birthday OUR Lady of the River Primary School students and staff celebrated the school’s 75th birthday in an unforgettable way on Friday - by turning back the clock. Each class wore different outfits to represent past eras. History teacher Jenny Segui

said the celebrations were fitting. “Everyone dressed up in their eras,” she said. “It was a good, old fashioned open day.” Mrs Segui said dressing up gave the students a sense of what it was like in some of the periods the school has gone through.

A slice of heaven T

O celebrate Ouyen’s final Great Australian Vanilla Slice Triumph tomorrow, the Riverland Weekly is holding its very own day to pay tribute to the popular sweet. Four participating bakeries, the Country Bakehouse in Loxton, Renmark Patisserie, Pieman’s Kitchen, Renmark, and the Paringa Bakery, will be offering vanilla slice deals too good to resist for tomorrow only. Country Bakehouse owner Tim Vivian was formerly involved with the vanilla slice competition across the border as a judge and entrant and he knows what it takes to produce a great vanilla slice. Mr Vivian said the quintessential pastry

should be enjoyed by all. “A good vanilla slice should have nice, crisp pastry, even though we’re accustomed to a more chewier pastry in South Australia,” he said. “It should have a vanilla creamy texture, with custard on the inside.” With Mr Vivian’s experience making and judging vanilla slices from across Australia, the Country Bakehouse is a must stop during the Riverland Weekly’s Vanilla Slice Day. Paringa Bakery is another outlet which has experimented with its entries into the Great Australian Vanilla Slice Triumph in previous years and is excited to be participating in the Riverland’s very own Vanilla Slice Day tomorrow. Last year the bakery

entered an unusual but absolutely tasty white wine vanilla slice and the latest version of the slice on the menu involves wattleseed. “It’s made from extracts of the wattleseed tree, it’s really bizarre,” Paringa Bakery owner Mel Finlayson said. “It’s sort of hard to describe, you have to try it. “It’s got a flavour of its own. “We use it in Anzac biscuits and it just gives that hint of flavour. “Most days, it outsells our traditional (vanilla slice).” Renmark Patisserie and Pieman’s Kitchen, Renmark, will have scrumptious vanilla slices available for a great deal during tomorrow’s Vanilla Slice Day.

Keeping a short and sharp eye on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening around the Riverland and Mallee

WAIKERIEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S Abby Cain was lucky enough to have her photograph taken outside the house renovated by The Block winners Polly and Waz. The 11 year old visited the auctioned house during a family holiday, one week prior to Channel Nineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s auction of the stunning homes. Abby also had the opportunity to look inside the house Josh and Jenna renovated and enjoyed seeing the room which was one of the weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winners.

AND ANOTHER THING... Mallee choirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical charms THERE was certainly a talented Mallee contingent participating in the Riverland Primary Schools Music Festival earlier this month. Several students from Lameroo Regional Community School Primary choir (pictured left) enjoyed a successful

Overseas experience for Holly RIVERLAND occupational therapist Holly Brown was one of seven South Australian university students to be awarded a scholarship for her efforts at the Endeavour Australia Cheun Kong Awards this month. The award enabled Holly to participate in an exchange program as part of her studies. Holly went to the Hong Kong Polytechnic University studying occupational therapy techniques and said her exchange was a rewarding experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was great to see the advanced level of care that they provide in Hong Kong and apply some of that thinking to my work here,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Over two days, teenagers aged between 14 and 18 will participate in activities and listen to a range of guest speakers including gold winning paralympian Katrina Webb and SA Police Special Task and Rescue member Derrick McManus.

Riverlanders celebrate World Youth Day in Madrid

â&#x2013; FUNDS: A StepUp team collecting money at a recent Adelaide Crows match.

A GROUP of Riverland pilgrims have been on a trip of a lifetime, which included celebrating World Youth Day in Madrid recently. Locals including Briony Fitzgerald and Mick Beech visited Jerusalem where they

performance at the Chaffey Theatre. Of the contributors, Kaitlin Beddome was fantastic as a choral compere, Sarah Willcox had a confident solo performance and Kurt Miegel did a great job on trombone as part of the band.

Market fun

â&#x2013; TALKING: Enjoying Arrosto Coffee at the Riverland Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market in Berri recently were (from left) Glenys Benda, Diana March, Geoff March, Zoe Sims, Shirley Sims, Oliver Sims, Lyn Harvey and Steve McWhinney. Photo: SUPPLIED

completed the biggest day of their pilgrimage walk. During the walk, the group visited the church which was built over the birthplace of the Virgin Mary. Nearby, they went to the Pool of Bethseda, where Jesus healed the Paralysed Man. They visited the streets of the old city of Jerusalem and finished at the holy Sepulchre, the site of Jesus on the

cross at Calvary. The group continued on to the Wailing Wall, where they touched the wall and said a prayer before moving on to the cenacle room of The Last Supper. Finally reaching Madrid, the Riverlanders got a glimpse of World Youth Day celebrations before heading off to a gathering of 3000 Australians and the opening mass.

Cars in the news

Full speed ahead for racing season By CALLUM TRIFONOFF

â&#x2013; VINTAGE: Wunkarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mel Schulz loves to show off his pride and joy, a 1929 green Chevrolet 6. Photo: CALLUM TRIFONOFF

Melâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s answer to the perfect car By CALLUM TRIFONOFF THE tone of Wunkar man Mel Schulzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice changes when he talks about his pride and joy, his green 1929 Chevrolet 6. The 82-year-old car has been a major project for Mel who has invested much of his time into the vintage vehicle in what he describes as his answer to the search for the perfect car. Having bought it off a friend in the 1970s, Mel has spent hours pulling the car

to pieces and rebuilding it to his satisfaction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started looking for the perfect car 10 years before I found the Chevrolet,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I asked my friend and we made the deal and then, I brought it home.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I rebuilt it but when I bought it, it was a wreck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The engine had a crack in the block.â&#x20AC;? Over the years Mel has been proud to show off his stunning vehicle in numerous exhibits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 1980, it got a

certificate of merit at the Loxton Show,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a big honour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also been at about six weddings and (the car) has appeared in a Chevrolet monthly magazine before too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve sent parts of it to Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and even Alice Springs.â&#x20AC;? Having been out of action for some time, Mel had his son rebuild the car and now has it running once again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It started like a goer,â&#x20AC;?

he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a lot of hard work, the car was a wreck, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see myself doing anything with it for a while but it was a success.â&#x20AC;? Despite not being a member of the Riverland Vintage & Classic Car Club, Mel has taken his vehicle on many of the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s runs. Mel has a passion for all cars and said something about four wheeled vehicles fascinates him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like all of them but especially the old ones,â&#x20AC;? he said.

ALMOST $20,000 in grants has helped the Riverland Speedway prepare for a bumper year. President Greg Haynes and the speedway committee are preparing for the start of the new season on December 3 and will be kicking it off in fine style with the sidecar grand slam. In preparation for the new year, Riverland Speedway has received $18,500 worth of grants. Mr Haynes has welcomed the grants which have been allocated to improve the speedway facilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Renmark Council will chip in $4000...thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go towards a new (110,000 litre) tank because the (current concrete storage) tank on the highway has just about fallen over, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaking,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also picked up $7000 from the Office for Recreation and Sport and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone towards a disabled toilet because we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have disabled facilities and we want to try and encourage some disabled people to come to the speedway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve picked up $8000 between the Office for Recreation and Sport and also Speedway Australia, who have funded the new lights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The lights are actually up

now and ready to go for the new season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully by the end of October, the tank will be ready and by October/November, the toilets will be ready.â&#x20AC;? Mr Haynes has also signed on as president of the speedway for the next two years and the committe has attracted a number of new faces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone from six members to about 14 or 15,â&#x20AC;? Mr Haynes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The actual (speedway) membership has doubled as well.â&#x20AC;? The 2011-12 season will see Riverland Speedway host a round of the first ever Super Sedan Country Series. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a bit of a drawcard,â&#x20AC;? Mr Haynes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have a Demolition Derby on June 7 as well as our normal demolition-type races with our caravan.â&#x20AC;? Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inventive boat race has been put aside for other ideas to attract visitors to the Renmark based motorsport facility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to drop the boat race this year because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting a little short of numbers,â&#x20AC;? Mr Haynes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone can expect something different, we like to change it around so people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get bored of the same old stuff.â&#x20AC;? or call 1800 186 306

Plans for VIC move

services offered 30%#)!,)3).'). bld 179804


By BRAD PERRY ALMOST two years after the Loxton Riverfront Masterplan was released, a feasibility study into the relocation of Loxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Visitor Information Centre will commence. The concept plans, produced in 2009, suggested the VIC be relocated from its current Bookpurnong Terrace location to the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s riverfront. Under the plans, the large centre would also incorporate a cafe or restaurant, toilets, kitchen facilities and a meeting room as part of an expected $2 million project. The Loxton Waikerie Council has allocated money in its current annual budget to conduct a feasibility study into the move, with several community members already voicing concern about access, carparking and signage if the

centre was to relocate. However, council chief executive officer Peter Ackland said if outcomes of the study are positive, expressions of interest to help construct the new facility would be sought. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the end, if the feasibility is positive, then the expression of interest to see whether people are willing to invest in a private partnership with council to construct that facility is what is being contemplated,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the feasibility is proved to be successful, then what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be looking for is to draw up detailed plans of what it would look like, how it would be constructed and those types of things. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking to do that with a private partnership. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So in the end, if an investor was to build that facility, obviously theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have some

input as to how it would be built and what it would look like.â&#x20AC;? Despite the current tough economic situation across Australia, Mr Ackland is still positive there is an investor out there willing to be involved with the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are other areas of the state that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t suffering to the degree this area is in terms of some of the economic issues,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whilst we could be looking for an internal regional investor, it may be that investment comes from outside the region, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not closing our minds to any of those possibilities.â&#x20AC;? Mr Ackland said the feasibility study is expected to be completed before the end of the year and if successful, expressions of interest would be sought in the following months.

The upgrade and refurbishment of facilities at the Morgan Conservation Park

Environment & Heritage MATTERS

will breathe new life into the area for visitors and locals. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is undertaking the works as part of a two year redevelopment program which includes the installation of a self-registration bay, marking out the campground areas, reforming the main access roads and fencing off the park boundaries and areas within the park that are of important conservation significance to p protect species such as the lo locally threatened prickly b bottlebrush, callistemon b brachyandrus. To date, DENR has insstalled the self-registration b bay and car turn-off area at th the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entrance. The self-registration bay p provides an area where visittors can learn about the history of the park and the types of flora and fauna theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re likely to see.

Camping permits can also be collected and paid through the self-registration bay. Camping permits will be checked and collected by DENR ranger staff through regular patrols of the park. The recently established Friends of Murraylands West Group will also be working in partnership with DENR ranger staff on redevelopment projects within the park. When the upgrade work is completed, DENR ranger staff will run a significant compliance program aimed at reducing negative impacts on the park such as inappropriate activities including offroad vehicle use by 4WDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and motorbikes, camping in unauthorised areas and damage to park property. For further information about Morgan Conservation Park redevelopment, contact the Department of Environment and Natural Resources on 8595 2111.

Loxton Waikerie Council chief executive officer Peter Ackland said the issue has been raised in previous years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a reasonably regular occurrence, as every couple of years or so

â&#x20AC;&#x153;So the more parking spaces available close to our CBD and where our shops are, quite obviously thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to have an increased benefit for people to have access to our traders and our shops.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, council will also look at the viability of expanding or relocating its bus parking area, currently next to the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s library. Mr Ackland said buses currently are forced to exit by reversing into oncoming traffic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to look at access for the bus and implications of moving a big bus through our main street,â&#x20AC;? he said.

 Matthew Sullivan

Time to park elsewhere this issue seems to arrive,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talked to the chamber and the chamber is undertaking some discussion with its members to see whether there are ways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Perhaps their employees can park in some other parking areas that are provided but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take up parking facilities within East Terrace and out the front of other shops.â&#x20AC;? Mr Ackland said available short term parking for customers on the main street is important. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Particularly in regional areas, people tend to like to park very close to where they shop,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Having been out of theatre for six years, Leon said he has missed the challenge of being up on stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the last six years, I've done tv and film, which is a totally different technique,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you make a mistake (on a set), you can always go 'cut' but on stage, it's live, it's raw. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You make a mistake, you've got to fix it up within the moment, not making it noticeable.â&#x20AC;?

Trifâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trivia

â&#x20AC;&#x153;As for Luke...he's the non-indigenous actor, he plays everyone who was in Jimmy and Phil's lives, like coaches and friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The show is funny, it's sad, it deals with racism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The play is not only about football, it's about their lives, which are really interesting lives.â&#x20AC;? Growing up with a rugby league background, Leon had to learn the basics of AFL quickly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a challenge itself,â&#x20AC;? he laughed.

Tuesday 6th

THE dramatic story of two of the greatest players to take the Australian football stage will be revealed on September 15 when their story is told on a stage of a different sort at the Chaffey Theatre. As part of a state-wide tour, Krakouer! is set to thrill crowds, just as footballers Phil and Jim Krakouer, who the story is set around, did when they joined North Melbourne

in the 1980s. The unique performance will see three cast members, Leon Burchill, Sean Dow and Luke Hewitt take to the stage, with Hewitt performing as 30 different characters. Leon is new to the performance, which has toured around Australia since 2009, and said it has a little bit of everything. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I play three characters in the play, my main role is Jim Krakouer,â&#x20AC;? Leon said.

Paringa ready to claim the flag PARINGA may not have finished minor premier but has the form and the wood on Lyrup coming into the grand final. In what has almost been the perfect season, the Swans have made light work of most of the teams below them on the way to a shot at the premiership. With fresh legs, the Paringa camp is raring to go with the only dilemma facing it being selection with 28 names to choose from. “The six blokes that are going to miss out are good footballers,” Paringa coach Aarod Westley said. “They could go to any other club and get a game.” Paringa’s depth has been a crucial factor in the team’s season success to date and the Swans are a huge chance to claim their second title in three years. “You have to be confident,” Westley said. “Obviously we showed that we can beat them.” When the siren sounds to begin the grand final though, all history is pushed aside, according to Westley. “When that ball gets thrown up, she is going to be 50/50,” he said. “We put in a lot more effort training wise this year, so if we get up, the boys will finally see all that hard work we’ve done will pay off.” In the first semi-final, Paringa shook off a determined Lyrup to record a 25 point win and earn a week off but is that an advantage?

PARINGA Premierships: 1979, 1995, 1997, 2002, 2005, 2009. Past six finishes: 2005 - 1st 2006 - 2nd 2007 - 6th 2008 - 3rd 2009 - 1st 2010 - 4th ■ STRONG: Paringa captain Andrew Lloyd could be a potential match winner for the Swans, while (right) forward Dean HIll will be hoping to kick a bag of goals during the grand final. Photos: FILE “We had the last round bye and then won the second semi and then another bye, so this will only be two games in a month for us,” Westley said. “Having one week off would have been good but two, we will have to wait and see.” After losing Anthony Lippis to Lyrup, there was concern the Swans forward line would not be potent enough but strong marker Dean Hill has stepped up with 92 goals so far this season.

Wishing the Swans all the best for the Grand Final

He will be an important factor if Paringa is to win the flag. Captain and Duthie Medalist Andrew Lloyd and Chris Gardner are vital in the midfield and Jono Wood will also need to be on his game across the centre line. While Lyrup have a tall and well proven forward line, Westley said Duane Angel will keep Nathan Willmott quiet, while Tom Frahn and Jesse Watson will also need to be on top of their game for the Swans.

Minor round finish: Ranked second in attack (2175 points) and third in defence (1156). Leading goalkickers: Dean Hill 92, 5.41 avg Sam Frahn 29, 1.93 Jesse Watson 28, 2.15 Chris Gardner 23, 1.53

Past six finishes: 2005 - 3rd 2006 - 4th 2007 - 2nd 2008 - 3rd 2009 - 8th 2010 - 1st Minor round finish: Ranked number one in attack (2402 points for) and third in defence (1160 points against).

THEY may be based in a small town but the Lyrup Football Club certainly has the passion to win and grow. It is a credit to the club the Lions are playing in another grand final after several tough years at the bottom of the ladder. Like last year, the minor premiers had to win their way through the preliminary final to have another chance at a premiership. For the first time in the club’s history, the Lions are poised to claim back-to-back flags. “It’s never been done before, so I think it would be pretty good to happen,” Lyrup coach Sam Lloyd (pictured above) said. “After losing to them last time, the guys would hate to see that happen again and I think we’ll match up a bit better this time.” Experience is on Lyrup’s side with veterans Scott Watson, Ken Karpany and Nathan Willmott guiding the younger heads. Lloyd said the Lions have

certainly taken the harder path to the grand final but believes form is important. “Continuity is always good but then Paringa having the week off is handy for them as well as there is always sore spots and a few little injuries this time of the year,” he said.

After losing to them last time, the guys would hate to see that happen again.

Lyrup’s loss to Paringa in the semi-final will be in the back of the players’ minds and Lloyd said he believes the team can beat the Swans as they did in the teams’ first meeting this season. “The week before we had five

or six guys that didn’t perform up to standard but on the weekend, everyone did,” he said. “I think this team is stronger than last year’s but in saying that, I think the opposition is stronger than last year’s as well.” Across the ground Lyrup has a number of outstanding players including a strong midfield comprising of Lenny Campbell, Kenny Karpany, Jason Marr and Travis Wilson and Nathan Gregory in the ruck. Wilson was a late addition to the team this season but Lloyd said he has been a fantastic recruit. “It’s added a lot of explosive pace and some very good skills,” Lloyd said. “He is a quality player. “He could certainly be the gamebreaker.” There is a chance Lloyd may be tagged, while Brad Healy or Dave Grenfell may get the job on shutting down Paringa spearhead Dean Hill.

EAST Murray is outright favourites to win this year’s Riverland Independent under 17’s football flag. Facing the underdog in Lyrup, who finished fourth, the Tigers will be determined to get off to a good start. Nicholas Norman, (pictured above) who was awarded the competition’s best player on Monday night, will be unstoppable. Small forward Brok Schubert has been lively in attack with an impressive 84 goals for the season. Sam Durdin has had a consistent season and Kale Smith is a potential match winner for the minor premiers. For Lyrup, Gary Abdulla is an important player and Bradley Cook has appeared in his club’s best-a-field votes seven times. Captain Dylan Marr has been one of the highlights of the season, showing tremendous leadership, while Ken Karpany junior has been quick footed all season. Can the young Lyrup team match it with East Murray’s firepower up forward? Lachlan Hentschke and Max Baker have both booted almost 40 goals for the season and will take the Lions’ best defenders. Zakk Gallo will be the Tigers’ best avenue to goal.

Redway on his game DESCRIBING the performance of 13-year-old Matthew Redway at the Renmark-Berri Field and Game shoot last Sunday, club stalwart Paul Hansen said, “I was amongst a group of experienced shooters that watched with our mouths open, he was that good.” The Renmark junior shot 64/75 in a brilliant display for someone of his age and with his handicap taken into account, he actually took out the annual Wes Fenton Memorial Shield competition. The 75 target shoot, held in perfect conditions, attracted a pleasing number of new faces to the range, which compensated for a number of regular members who were in Mount Gambier for the eighth state qualification event. Those making the trip away included Tony Trevorrow, Rob Shawyer, Kailan Markham, Pros Vanderzalm and his daughter Brianna, who were all members of the SA team last year. This year’s state squad will be announced after the SA championships in Mount Gambier on September 24 and 25. Also, last Sunday Loxton’s Ray Pash won the A grade with 65/75 ahead of Mick Carter (Adelaide) 56/75, Colin Nunn (Glossop) took out the B grade narrowly from Peter Perry (Adelaide), 59/75 to 58/75, and Loxton pair Jeremy Pippos 52/75 and Anthony Trezise, 26/75 headed the C grade. This year’s national titles will be held in Tasmania in October.

Keller medal favourite THE Mallee Football League will hold its annual Mail Medal dinner at Peake on Sunday, with former Hawthorn and Adelaide AFL champion Darren Jarman as the special guest. Despite being one of the competition’s leading teams in recent seasons, Border Downs Tintinara have dominated best and fairest voting in those years, contradicting opinions that its many stars would rob each other of votes. Working on that theory then, 2010 medalist, former Sturt and Waikerie player and current BDT skipper Josh Keller, must be one of the main chances again, particularly as his team mate Josh Richardson, a triple winner of the medal, has missed a number of games through injury. Another popular tip for the award is Karoonda’s Corey Knight who has seldom been out of the Magpies’ best player rankings and would have taken the umpires’ eye with his work around the goals. Murrayville is another team

■ HOLDING ON: Murrayville is still in the hunt for a premiership but will have to overcome Karoonda this weekend. with multi chances including Kevin Wyatt, Trent Sporn and Rian Crane, while Lameroo’s Dan Wohling is a class act and often a stand out for the Hawks in 2011. Many are saying this could be the closest count for many years but we have heard that often before only to find the men that matter, the umpires,

LOXTON’S Steph Baird was a member of the state team that finished third and brought home gold medals from the Australian Schoolgirls Hockey Championships in Newcastle recently. Also in Newcastle for the schoolboys titles was Renmark’s Dalton Casey, with SA finishing seventh. Dalton is also in the state team for another national championship when the under 15 boys’ competition is held in Melbourne from October 1 to 8. At the same time, another promising Renmark junior Juliet Mallinson will represent the state under 13 girls’ team at their nationals in Alice Springs.

had a different view. Keller, Knight and Rian Crane appear to be the top three chances. Darren Hare, Zakk Bullard (Karoonda), Josh Ridgway (Lameroo), Caine Lynn and goal kicker Aaron Hand (Peake), Lachy Richardson (BDT), and Pinnaroo stand out Alex Keough will all interest

the each-way punter. Installed as favourite by many in last Saturday’s second semi final, Murrayville looked the goods for much of the journey against minor premiers BDT, leading by two goals at the first change and by one major at the long break in a pressure cooker contest. Scores were tied at the last change 7-8 apiece before the likes of Lee Slape, Chris Gregory and Lachy Richardson got the Crows home 10-12 (72) to 8-9 (57). Murrayville’s best were Mathew Standley, Allister Heintze and Rian Crane and the club will be looking at those fellows and more to back up urgently to put down the threat of a rested Karoonda so that they get another crack at BDT, at Murrayville, for the title. Knight, Hare, Justin Jackson and the Bullard brothers make Karoonda a formidable opponent at Coonalpyn in the preliminary final but perhaps Murrayville will win, just.

THE Riverland was strongly represented at the sixth Mildura Masters Games last week with Renmark lifeballer Trish McAuliffe describing the experience as “fantastic”. She said her 11 strong lifeball squad was “amazing”, and hinted that while the tournament was thoroughly enjoyable, it may not have been quite as competitive as they would have liked. Lifeball is particularly suited to older adults and is a fun team game. Competitive or not, everyone who played, including visitors from Kyneton,

Rutherglen, Albury and Port Pirie, received gold medals. Some 23 sports were included on the program and that did not include perhaps the most favoured event, the happy hour, which apparently grew remarkably in numbers from only four entrants on the first night. Lawn bowls and athletics also had Riverlanders involved and amongst the success stories were gold medals to David Leedle and Bill Cropper in the bowls at Merbein and a silver medal to 79-year-old Brian Ekins in indoor rowing.

The Riverland lifeball group now has 23 members. ‘The game you play for life’ is suitable for males and females of all ages but is ideal for seniors. It improves general health and wellbeing and incorporates walking, thinking, passing and throwing a ball. The local summer season will be played at 9am (8.30am for a warmup) on Friday mornings at the Renmark Tintra Tennis complex. For further information, telephone Trish McAuliffe on 0429 953 255.

Boats ready to go for Enduro ACTIVITY is back around the sheds and on the waterways after a quiet time over winter as boats are brought up to speed for the resumption of the Paul Hutchins Loan Centre Riverland Dinghy Championship. So far in the season, the Dash for Cash was cancelled because of the high river and rounds two and three, the Dinghy Derby and Circuit Races, have been completed. The leading group in the 30hp sports class has Jason Gordon/Ben Pobke on 21 points, Haydn Brown/ Darren Bright and Kyle Gregurke/ Tom Azzapardi 19, Scott Jenke/Simon Johnson 16, Brent Martin/Aiden Kenyon 14, multi-title winners Linton Price/Colin Gordon 13, Chris Lang/Kym Trout 12 and Matt Thur/ Reece Glazbrook 10. With double points on offer in round four, the race for the title is still wide open. The new YMF Enduro this Sunday has been introduced to replace the annual Lock to Lock race. The Enduro, will involve some long river sections and some favourite local creeks, although the course through those waterways will be in the opposite direction to the Dinghy Derby route. “That will open a new can of worms for the guys,” organiser Jason Gordon said. The race will take in two laps of a course covering 45 kilometres with the start, mid race and finish spots all in front of the Renmark Club. Round five, the finish of the season, will be the Hunchy Run on October 29.

■ NEW: The way the Riverland Turf Cricket Association is set up will be looked at at an AGM in the coming weeks.

Cricket formats under review THE annual general meeting of the Riverland Turf Cricket Association will be held at a venue to be finalised on September 14. Sub-committees have been extremely active over the off-season, including president Paul Stewart, Paul Miatke and Matthew Clifford, updating bylaws to more suitably accommodate today’s requirements. Paul and secretary Bruno Falcinella, at least, from the current executive will not be available for re-election for 2011-12, so replacement officers will be required. In the absence of nominations for the positions, the by-laws allow for a rotation system amongst clubs

to fill the roles. Talking to Paul, he did not anticipate major changes in the clubs that will be involved this season. However it will be recommended that the two day, one day and Twenty20 A grade competitions be run separately rather than all contributing to the overall premiership. There has also been a change in the Murray Districts SACA Zone Coordinator’s position with Berri`s Neil Weinert stepping down after some seven years in the role. Loxton pair Greg Graetz and Michael Gutsche have commenced attending Country Cricket Committee meetings in Adelaide as Neil’s replacements.

The number of goals scored by Renmark Olympic in one half of soccer at the weekend.


Loxton bows out AIDED by several high quality backpackers, including English visitor Jack Pitcher, Loxton made a brave attempt to gain a last minute entry into the soccer Top Four Cup competition. However after going down 6-3 to Berri River Rangers last Sunday, it remains in fifth place on goal difference. Down 5-0 at half-time, Loxton showed some real fight and determination to get back into the contest. Renmark Olympic, only 1-0 up against Barmera Gold at half time, really got moving to defeat the latter 7-0 but coach Nick Sotiroulis will be anxious to correct his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slow starts for the Top Four tournament. The Top Four open womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competition also received an injection of interest when Barmera scored an upset 1-0 victory over premiers Renmark. The Top Four Cup starts on September 11, with most senior players having a rest this weekend. Meanwhile, at Loxton this Sunday, the home team meets a composite Riverland over 35s team coached by Barmera Dev Estatesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; championship winning coach Kevin Barber. The over 35s will contain some present day Barmera and Berri veterans plus come â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;golden oldiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; including Paul Eleftheriadis, Nick Sotiroulis and Ian Van Der Biezen. Riverland soccer official Adrian Pipe said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the vibe amongst the old fellas has been really positive in the lead up to the game with their excitement perhaps to be matched by that of local chiropractors and physiotherapists on Mondayâ&#x20AC;?.

Sticks out for hockey finals FINALS in local hockey get under way tomorrow night and if matches at the tail end of the minor round are any guide, the race for the A grade premierships in particular, appear wide open. Last weekend in the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competition, Waikerie defeated Renmark 6-4 to seal the minor premiership, while Loxton grabbed second position and the double chance by accounting for Berri. That relegated Renmark, on top a fortnight ago, to third, so they will meet Berri at 8.40pm tomorrow at Glassey Park in the must win first semi-final. Earlier at 7pm, Berri plays Waikerie in the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first semi-final. Then at the same venue on Saturday in second semifinals, Loxton meets Renmark in the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game at 6pm and at 8.30pm, it will be Waikerie versus Loxton in the

The annual MindarieHalidon race day is one not to be missed with its picnic atmosphere coupled with a top class racing program. There is something trackside for people of all ages and the catering is superb. Roads from a lot of places will again lead to this unique race day on Sunday, September 18.

WITH the annual â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Melbourne Cup of the Malleeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, the Mindarie-Halidon Cup, only a fortnight away, I thought it would be appropriate to glance back over a race that was first run in 1921 and still survives and at the same time, reflect on the passing of the Riverland Racing Club that gave us some much enjoyment in its prime at Berri.

Who’s worthy of the Whillas? By BRAD PERRY IN WHAT has been one of the most even Riverland Football League seasons in recent history, there are a number of potential winners for this year’s Whillas Medal. On form, there is a handful of names that could join the list of talented past medal winners. Minor premier Loxton North has several stand-out players and of those, Michael Arnold is one of the favourites. Traditionally, defenders do not attract too many votes with the last backman to win the award almost two decades ago. Arnold’s biggest threat will be one of his own team-mates, with Daniel Proud possibly attracting Panther votes. Barmera-Monash’s speedy defender/midfielder Dillon Millard is another popular choice to win the Whillas Medal after a strong season. Not only has he been consistent but the Roos have won enough games for him to attract plenty of votes. Also in the mix will be Loxton star Pete Smith and while the Tigers had a forgettable season, Smith really showed his worth. Of the other candidates for the medal, Waikerie’s Andrew Bachmann should poll quite well, although he

may not have received enough besta-fields to win. Berri captain Peter Safralidis, Barmera-Monash’s Mason Middleton and Renmark’s Brett Wakefield should all poll into the mid teens. The dark horses include Renmark tall Ryan Bennett and consistent Berri midfielder Adam Beauchamp.

■ WINNERS: Loxton A1 netballers are playing for a third straight flag. ■ From Page 36 Loxton will also need to get past Renmark’s seasoned defenders Jo Haynes and Leanne Menz. George said Loxton has the calibre to match it with Renmark. “I think it will be a good, tight game,” she said. “(My message will be) just to give it all they’ve got and if they’ve got possession then they’re responsible for it.” Shooter Holly Buick will play a major role if Loxton is to win, while Eve Will has been brilliant in wing defence and experienced Jackie Dahlitz has been another

Paringa captain leads from the front PARINGA ball magnet Andrew Lloyd was speechless when he was announced as this year’s winner of the Riverland Independent football association’s Howard Duthie Medal. The midfielder was surprised to receive the award with many of his team-mates also having strong seasons. After finishing runner-up in 2008 and 2009, Lloyd held off last year’s winner, fast finishing Dale Payne, of Blanchetown/Swan Reach, to win by two votes. Leading after 10 rounds, Lloyd continued to poll consistently finishing with 27 votes to claim the prestigious medal. Favourite Lyrup’s Jason Marr finished third on 20 votes and was awarded the competition’s most valuable player, while fellow team-mate Lenny Campbell was close behind on 19 votes. With the Swans heading to a grandfinal showdown with Lyrup on Saturday, Lloyd said being named the association’s best player had not yet sunk in. “I was obviously very surprised and honoured,” he said at Monday night’s count. “I thought I had a pretty reasonable season but in say-


ing that, so did the rest of the team, so I still thought it could have gone either way. “Winning the medal tonight probably won’t sink in until after next weekend and hopefully I can get another medal around my neck.” Winning a premiership is the ultimate goal, according to Lloyd. “It (winning a premiership) would be unreal not just for myself but for the rest of the team and the club,” he said. “We know it is going to be a hard game. “Obviously Lyrup finished on top and they didn’t finish on top for no reason.” With 84 goals, Paringa’s Dean Hill was the Independent’s leading goalkicker, Swan’s coach Aarod Westley was named coach of the year, East Murray’s Kale Smith was awarded best first year player, fellow Tiger Nicholas Norman won the Independent Colts‘ medal and Brok Schubert was the colts’ leading goalkicker.

consistent performer. George took on the Loxton A1 coaching role after injuring her knee and said win or lose tomorrow night, she has enjoyed the experience. “It has certainly been different,” she said. “It’s certainly had its challenges and decisions I’ve had to make but the team has been extremely supportive. “I am looking forward to playing again next year.” Meanwhile, Blanchetown/ Swan Reach will compete against East Murray in the Riverland Independent Netball Association grand final at the weekend in what is expected to be a close contest.

competition is expected to be very even. Riverland Eight-ball Association president Daryl Wutke said players will give the finals their all. “It’ll be close in all divisions,” he said. Paringa Hotel is tagged

as early favourites after finishing top during the regular season but there could be a few upsets, according to Wutke. “It’s been a steady season,” he said. “We had a young side come out from Lyrup and they’ve done re-

ally, really well this year. “It was pretty close in the first division up until the last game. “Any of the sides could have made it.” Having 10 teams this season has also helped boost the competition

and profile of the sport. “We just decided it’ll be simpler,” Wutke said. The preliminary final will be held next Wednesday at the Barmera Hotel, while the grand final will be played at the same venue within a fortnight.


By CALLUM TRIFONOFF BEING given the opportunity to play A grade netball at such a young age is a reason Berri’s Kimberley Wade has tasted such success. The 19-year-old was awarded the Riverland Netball Association’s highest individual honour when she received the A1 best and fairest award at the weekend. While being acknowledged for her talent on the court, Wade said she felt disappointed at the fact she will not have a chance at a premiership. “(It) would’ve been better to make the grand final,” Wade told the Riverland Weekly after accepting her award. “(It hurts) very much to be knocked out in the preliminary final. “I’m off to Adelaide, this is my last year. “That’s probably why losing in the preliminary hurt more.” Wade will study in Adelaide next year and pursue netball at a higher level but admits she will miss the Riverland competition. “I absolutely love the club, that’s half the reason their development program has been phenomenal,” she said. “To have people so young and playing A grade is great. “The association, again, they do so much in promoting their juniors as well. “It’s a great competition.” Renmark’s Denika Gartery was runner-up to Wade, while Kerryn van Dyk, from Renmark won the A2 best and fairest and Loxton North’s Sandra Merkx claimed A3 spoils.

Loxton’s triple threat By BRAD PERRY

JUST REWARDS ■ SWAMPED: After finishing runner-up several times in recent years, Paringa midfielder Andrew Lloyd (centre) finally won his first Howard Duthie Medal at the Riverland Independent football association’s best and fairest count on Monday night. Lloyd, who is pictured being congratulated by his team-mates, is hoping to do the double by winning a premiership against Lyrup on Saturday. Photo: BRAD PERRY

IT seems Loxton’s A1 netballers thrive on the underdog tag. After claiming last season’s premiership against the odds, Loxton will face off against the much fancied Renmark in tomorrow night’s Riverland Netball Association A1 grand final. Aiming for a third consecutive flag, Loxton coach Skye George said the team will give its all in last season’s grand final rematch. “I think we were written off at the start of the season,” George said. “Barmera and Berri (looked like they would) be in the finals and possibly the grand final and I think that made us more determined.” Loxton defeated Berri by 15 goals in last week’s preliminary final and George said momentum may be a crucial factor. “We know Renmark... will come out fired up

and knowing in their minds what did happen last year,” she said. “At the end of the day, we’ll just give it all we’ve got and it’s probably going to come down to the little one per centers.” For Loxton to win another premiership, the feeling would be overwhelming, according to George. “To win one grand final in your life is normally a pretty significant thing,” she said. “Some have won two in a row, so a third, it would just be hard to describe the feeling if it did happen.” Renmark will be looking to avenge last season’s grand final loss and has had a stellar season with several large wins. Denika Gartery has been strong across the court, while Sonja Modlinski will be a key player in attack for Renmark. ■ Continued Page 35
