LOCAL CONNECTION â– POSITIVE: Future Premier Jay Weatherill speaking at a conference in Berri at the weekend.

SOUTH Australia’s premier-inwaiting Jay Weatherill has vowed not to forget the Riverland when he begins his term next month, with his promise strengthened after revealing he has a local connection. Mr Weatherill, who was in Berri for a country Labor conference on Saturday, told the Riverland Weekly his wife Melissa had grown up in Loxton. “One of the reasons why I


BRAD PERRY wanted to come up here is my wife grew up in the Riverland, in Loxton, so she just wanted to show our daughters the house where she grew up,� he said. While Mr Weatherill does not take over from Mike Rann as

premier of the state until October 20, when asked whether the Riverland would be forgotten, he was frank. “Absolutely not,� Mr Weatherill said. “I will certainly be here (in the Riverland).� The soon-to-be premier said he was unable to comment about the $20 million Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund and the region’s direction.

“I’m obviously not in the role yet so I haven’t been fully briefed on all of the issues facing the Riverland but I’ll be saying more about that when I’m in the role,� he said. One of the key points Mr Weatherill emphasised was that country people should be treated on an equal playing field to their city counterparts. ■Continued Page 3

Local MFS awards TWO Riverland Metropolitan Fire Service stations have received awards after completing annual MFS Regional Proficiency and Operational Assessments. Out of 16 regional stations assessed this year, Loxton MFS was awarded the Regional Operations Shield and Renmark MFS, the Regional Commanders Shield. MFS chief officer Grant Lupton said each firefighter should be proud of the standard of presentation of their stations and appliances. “The annual regional assessments are an opportunity for each regional station to showcase their



compliance with procedures, safety standards, uniforms, station presentation, appliance care, maintenance and practical fire fighting skills,” he said. The annual regional assessments are an opportunity for each regional station to showcase their compliance.

Mr Lupton congratulated each station for the level of excellence and commitment on display.

Riverland Field Days spring to life WITH so much hard work behind the scenes, the Riverland Field Days has finally come to life. Not only has the event brought a carnival type atmosphere to the region but the sun has also followed in its footsteps. Like in my younger days, when I used to attend the Royal Adelaide Show, there is a certain excitement attached to the Riverland Field Days. Yes, the event may be focused on horticulture and agriculture, and I am not a farmer or grower, but there is so much else to do. Last year I went and found myself at the end of the day eating strawberries and cream, attempting to hold a bottle of wine, while at the same time balancing a stick of mettwurst and wiping away the evidence of a sherbet icecream. I sound like a kid in a candy shop but the Field Days are not all about food. To justify filling my stomach with all sorts of deliciousness, I did do a lot of walking to every corner of the Field Days’ site. From boot shining to cooking demonstrations, to considerations of buying cars and furniture, it was certainly a long day. Every year I look back on my Field Days experience feeling pretty happy about what I have completed in a day. Not only is it the exhibits which make the event, meeting people and catching up with others you have not seen for a while, is also great. Let us hope when the Field Days finish and everyone packs up, this year again, it leaves its legacy on the locals. Oh, and it can leave the sun behind too!

A LOCAL environmental organisation has received substantial funding to operate an aquaponics unit at Moorook. Loxton to Bookpurnong Local Action Planning group, in conjunction with SA Murray Darling Basin NRM Board, has secured more than $150,000 of Federal Government Caring for Our Country (C4OC) funding to install the unit. Project Manager Craig Ferber said aquaponic production, which paired aquaculture and hydroponic systems, could give Riverland

landholders an alternative income option. “Sitting side by side, waste feeds from the aquaculture system into the hydroponics,” Mr Ferber said. “Using recycled water, there is very little water loss.” He said there has been significant interest in the project, with around 10 local landholders having completed initial training, funded by an earlier grant from C4OC. Landholders will be involved in training at the Moorook aquaponics site when it is completed in June 2013.

Mr Ferber said the system could help bring idle land back into production. “It’s a real shame to see so much land idle with such good infrastructure for the delivery of water running past the front gate,” he said. “It would be great to see the Riverland at the forefront of a new concept.”

RIVER Murray flows into the Riverland will continue to be unpredictable in the coming months with increased flows dependent on heavy rain, according to a key basin figure. South Australian Department for Water figures show river flows into the state dropped to 27,000 megalitres per day last week and will remain between that figure and 33,000 for the rest of this week. Previously anticipated flows of up to 50,000 megalitres per day in the latter half of September are not likely to be possible with water being directed into Lake Victoria. With unregulated flows into South Australia expected to continue into next month, Murray Darling Association general manager Ray Najar said catchments in the basin are wet and any rainfall will affect flows.

A VOCAL Riverland grower is hoping to attract new irrigation businesses and reinvigorate the industry through a proposal to rezone a specific area in the region for horticulture. Cooltong grower Jack Papageorgiou has already spoken to the three Riverland councils about plans to establish a report into the future of the region’s horticulture industry. He is hoping to gain community support, which will in turn, lead to an application to the $20 million Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund. “I asked the Riverland councils to take a leadership role where they engage the community, particularly our major industries, commodity groups, local government and irrigation trusts and put a proposal to the State Government to get some funds out of the futures fund to do a study for our horticulture future, so we as the Riverland, develop

We need to map out a new horticulture land development. “We also need to map out a new horticulture land development so we can attract new developers to establish in those areas.” Mr Papageorgiou said with around 200 Riverland growers accepting exit grants to leave the industry, the region must plan what it will do with current vacant land when it is again available for production. “We need to be organised and plan, so when those proper-

ties come on the market, we are going to attract private enterprise and new opportunity for investment,” he said. A study of specifically zoned horticultural land will be a positive step to attract irrigators from outside the area and also boost small business in the region, according to Mr Papageorgiou.

“In the vegetable industry, we should be able to attract for some relocation of Virginia and Adelaide Hills (irrigators) to the Riverland in the vegetable enterprise,” he said. “We might be able to also attract Queensland investors, who are heavilly involved in the vegetable industry. “If you are going to go to the market and attract those private enterprises, you’ve got to have a plan and a vision, so you can go

out there and attract those new enterprises but we are not doing that.” Mr Papageorgiou said his son Theo initially enquired about starting a vine pruning business in the Riverland at the age of 19 but was told to consider going into the mining industry instead. Today the 23-year-old owns his own vineyard and Mr Papageorgiou said the Riverland must encourage younger growers to enter the industry. “The study is about the future,” he said. “Trying to encourage our young people that there is a bright future for the Riverland. “We need young farmers to take over the family farms. “So let’s send them the right messages.” The Riverland will also need an ambassador to attract new business and Mr Papageorgiou said he may approach former Waikerie resident Mark Ricciuto to take on that role.

GRAIN giant Viterra has come under scrutiny for its lack of transparency and the company’s monopoly on the state’s agricultural industry as part of an interim report handed to Parliament yesterday. The report, which was created by the State Government’s Grain Handling Select Committee, documents the need for the industry to move forward and adjust to the harvest demands. “What we’ve found is the lack of transparency within an industry that has a huge monoply and that is referring to Viterra,” committee member Tim Whetstone said. “We don’t want to actually put the finger on Viterra but I think they’ve got a lot to answer for. “They are recognising the deficiencies and to their credit, they are making management decisions. “The real concern we have is for the lack of long term strategy for the industry, particularly with Viterra.” Mr Whetstone said Viterra is installing another weigh bridge in Loxton, as well as installing falling numbers machines. The report, which involves extensive consultation, research and input from farmers, also highlights the need for the industry to adjust to recent large grain demands. “With a large grain harvest, the bulk handlers had a huge task in front of them but...the big concerns

were the classification issues, the way the receivals were managed, that was of real concern,” Mr Whetstone said. “To a little lesser extent in this region, port access and transparency of stocks were a real concern to most marketers and the flow-on is to most of the farmers. “I see the storage facilities being adressed but those types of storages have been around for many years, as have the falling number machines, so I would like to see new techonology within classification. “What we’ve seen come away from the season is we need to have a much better classification structure and that’s something that we’ve

addressed at length. “The facilities to be able to handle the influx of large trucks, that’s been a real concern.” With large harvests and Riverland storages being put to the test, Mr Whetstone said the report highlights the need for the industry to be

prepared. “We are seeing large crops, we are seeing larger trucks delivering larger parcels of grain, that will be something that will need to be addressed,” he said. “It really is about the industry moving forward to tackle the increasing capacity for farmers to harvest quicker and for those storage facilties to be able to receive the grain quicker. “We have to have the information to access what facilities are taking what standard of grain so that when growers are delivering a standard of grain to Loxton, they need to know if the grain they are delivering will be accepted. “There is a working model... where there is on-farm classification facilities and I’d like to see South Australia being able to enjoy some of the progress within that sector of classification.” The positives and negatives from the coming harvest in four to six weeks will be used to strengthen the committee’s recommendations. “My real concern is the industry needs to be ready for a large crop,” Mr Whetstone said. “They need to be able to streamline receival and classification and they also need to be open and transparent with stock at hand and quality of stock. “We would like to assess the 2011/12 grain harvest so we can back our recommendations.”

Uproar over bus contracts By BRAD PERRY A RIVERLAND bus company will be forced to “look at efficiencies in other areas” following a long and drawn out process to secure State Government contracts. With a number of bus company contracts being tendered interstate, Renmark based Townsend Riverland Tours owner Tony Townsend said he considers the business lucky to receive a contract, albeit at a lesser financial benefit. “The contracts are not as financially rewarding as what I would have expected,” Mr Townsend said. “The margins are certainly much tighter now than what they have been. “We’ve now got to look at efficiencies in other areas to compensate the smaller margins.” The bus company, which runs buses in Renmark, Glossop and Loxton, will now need to find more work during school hours. “(We will need to be) providing buses to schools during school hours and things like that, which we currently do but we just need to do more of that,” Mr Townsend said.

Describing the contract tender process as “like pulling teeth”, Mr Townsend said he is thankful to have obtained contracts. “We have been successful in retaining our contracts but it has been a long, drawn out process,” he said. “We’re in the process, pretty much at the moment, of putting new buses onto the Loxton services because they were the ones that came up (in the) first (round of tenders). “What’s affecting most operators in the the competitive nature of the tender process. “We may have been a little bit luckier because we may have been a bit further remote but the process has been like pulling teeth, it hasn’t been very inviting for bus operators. “Most of the operators that I have spoken to are extremely disappointed with the process. “We waited a long time for the contract process to come around and expected it to be better than what it has turned out.” With protest rallies by the South Australian bus and coach operators, against the regional tender contracts going interstate, taking place at Par-

liament House on Monday, Family First MLC Rob Brokenshire said cutting out local transport companies in favour of one large operator is not the correct option. “It’s local bus operators that have been providing those services to the district for some time, they are not getting renewed contractors,” Mr Brokenshire said. “It could have significant impacts on the region. “These bus proprietors who have been doing a good job with DECS’ (Department of Education and Children’s Services) contracts for years don’t make much money out of those contracts but it gives them the cash flow so that they can then provide transport services for all your football clubs, your netball clubs, your Probuses and so on. “Without that regular cashflow from DECS, that puts those businesses at jeopardy and therefore it will bring more social isolation to those sorts of regions and towns, who are already disadvantaged enough with transport services.” Mr Brokenshire said the smaller bus operators in the Riverland and Mallee must not be “cast adrift”. “At the moment, those bus com-

Education officials discuss strategic plan LOCAL teachers met with Department of Education and Children’s Services’ executives yesterday to discuss the new strategic plan for public education in South Australia. The visit was part of a statewide roadshow to speak to principals, preschool directors, teachers and support staff about the plan and the greater support it will provide to schools. Department chief executive Keith Bartley said it was a priority to give greater authority to schools and teachers who are the local leaders of education. “Local principals and school teachers will use the overarching principles in the strategic plan to develop their own detailed local strategies, that meet the needs of students in the Murray and Mallee region,” Mr Bartley said. According to Mr Bartley, the plan also includes a strong commitment to connecting with communities and involving parents in the education of their children.

RIVERLAND councils have written a combined letter to the State Government seeking a solution for growers left in the lurch after the recent announcement that there will be no more exit grant funding. Last month the Riverland Weekly revealed the Federal Government had fully allocated its funding quota for the excep-

Joyson Orchards has formally admitted to underpaying its employees a total of $195,187.56 during this period. Joyson Orchards has rectified the underpayments, including payment of $103,901.35 to the Collector of Public Monies to cover payments owed to former employees who can no longer be contacted.

In a letter to South Australian Agriculture Minister Michael O’Brien, the mayors of the three Riverland councils said Riverlanders applying for exit grant funding had not been notified the funding had been exhausted. “There are several families in the Riverland

region that had their preassessment claim for an Exceptional Circumstances exit grant approved only to be informed that the funds have already been fully committed,” they wrote. “Based on the information that their pre-assessment claim had been approved, many of these property owners have sold their property for significantly lower than market value on the understand-

Joyson Orchards and its directors express their sincere regret and apologise to all past and present employees for failing to comply with its lawful obligations. Joyson Orchards gives its commitment that this conduct will not occur again and that it will comply with all workplace relation laws, including the Fair Work Act 2009.

Spring weather draws Field Day crowds By ZOE WATSON The Riverland Field Days has been met by local farmers and growers with their spirits buoyed as they prepare to reap the rewards of the coming season. Warm weather and a healthy crowd attended the first day of the Riverland Field Days yesterday. Riverland Field Days Committee chair Anthony Fulwood said with a strong season last year and with the upcoming harvest looking promising, more interest has been shown in agricultural and horticultural exhibits. “They’re (producers) investigating their options and putting it in the back of their head, collecting the information and having it there for if they have a good season,” he said. “When things are looking good, they can say ‘I’ve got the money, I do need a tractor… these are the ones I looked at, this suits me best, I’ll buy it.”

Mr Fulwood said this year’s ‘Grain Lane’ concept, where dryland farming exhibitors are grouped along a dedicated area, has been successful. With exhibitor numbers up on the past few years, Mr Fulwood said he hoped the confidence shown by site holders is catching on. “There has been more interest for site holders this year, which is a positive,” he said. “If there is that sort of attitude out there with exhibitors, I’m sure growers and the general public have caught a little bit of that optimism as well.” Mr Fulwood said the Field Days are an opportunity for producers to investigate farming options for the future. “There is some big machinery here,” he said. “In this day and

age, because of the cost of equipment, local dealers don’t hold things like that in stock like they did many years ago.” The optimism shown at the Field Days even wore off on the children enjoying the Safari for Kids program. “It gives the kids an interest,” he said. Hoping for 16,000 people to come through the gates over the two days, Mr Fulwood said the Field Days remained an important local event. “For the region, it’s a big benefit,” he said. “If you look at the equipment, the businesses, everything that is brought into the region, it does wonders for the economy.”

the Field Days. Renmark Children's Centre director Gale Hansen is passionate about her involvement with the Safari. "It's a really fun, interactive thing to do at the Field Days," Mrs Hansen said. "The children just need to look for the giraffe heads at the 27 different sites and collect all sorts of goodies and treats. "It's a way of engaging the children by getting them to look at the different sites and ask questions. "They get to share the experience with their families." Mrs Hansen is thrilled by the response she has received from companies wanting to be part of the Safari.

"The sponsors actually seeked us this year to be part of the Safari because they think it is so worthwhile," she said. Some of the goodies to be collected on the Safari include a calculator, a drink bottle and a bag of sweet treats.

ALMOST $700,000 of the $20 million Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund will be accessed by two local businesses to assist with projects to upgrade their companies and create more local jobs. During a visit to the region last week, Regional Development Minister Gail Gago announced that Renmark based Plummers Nurseries and Loxton’s Biological Services will each receive $438,000 and $245,000 respectively. Minister Gago said the businesses played an important role in the region. “Both of these industries are really important to the horticulture industries here and supporting the developments of these industries helps not only grow jobs here but helps improve the self reliance and independence of these industries,” she said. The futures funding will enable Plummers Nurseries to complete a $1.1 million project, over three years, to upgrade equipment, structures and production and improve handling processes. Plummers Nurseries wholesale nursery manager John Plummer said the business has a staff of 48 people and he expects more jobs to be created through the project with eight workers employed for phase one. “This will increase in December when the building part of the phase starts,” he said. The Airport Road wholesale nursery has been operating since 1979 growing vegetables and seedlings for growers, retailers and the general public. “The first plan is to build a staff room and a storage shed and to purchase a machine to grow seedlings here in their first stage that we normally buy in from other areas (such as Victoria and Queensland),” Mr Plummer said. “It means that everything will now be done inhouse and we don’t have to rely on other people and transport companies to get the produce here. “We believe that we will have higher quality and more control over what we are doing.” Loxton business Biological Services was also successful in receiving futures funding to develop technologically advanced systems for

mass production, packaging, freighting and distribution of selected biocontrol agents. The local business has been producing biocontrol agents for the citrus industry since 1976 with a focus in recent years on horticulture and greenhouse industries. Biological Services director James Altmann said the project will involve upgrading existing infrastructure at the Loxton Research Centre, where the company is based. A new laboratory, installation of new packaging equipment and the development of a cool chain for packaging and distribution will be included in the $490,000 project to be completed by next year. Minister Gago said horticulture has been one of the main industries applications have come in from so far. “Any project that is consistent with the prospectus directions and the road maps are obviously going to be considered favourably,” she said. “It just so happens that the grants that have been applied for so far have been largely (based) around horticulture.”

No easy solution for leak situation By BRAD PERRY

Reserve ready to open By ZOE WATSON

■LEAK: The well used Loxton Sporting Club requires extensive repairs to fix leaks in the roof which are causing damage to infrastructure. Photo: FILE having leaks.� The Loxton Recreation Centre where several sports are played including netball and basketball, also needs major work. “We’re also looking at that because there are and there have been issues with leaking on the playing surfaces which has caused some real concern, so we are continuing to look at that,� Mrs Firstbrook said. “That’s a much bigger

proposition.� A proposed Loxton sporting precinct plan proposes to combine a number of the local facilities and Mrs Firstbrook said repairing infrastructure needs to be permanent not temporary. “It just makes good sense to look after the buildings that you’ve got, particularly if we are looking for potentially a co-ordinated use for the future,� she said.

WILABALANGALOO Reserve and Nature Trail will reopen this Saturday after a change in focus and the rejuvenation of the nature trail. Berri Barmera Council Mayor Peter Hunt and National Trust of South Australia president David Beaumont will officially open the revamped reserve. National Trust Natural Heritage manager Glenn Williams (pictured above) said although historic exhibits had been removed, the reserve has much

to offer. “Its endearing feature will be the nature trail and the area’s natural heritage‌the Mallee country, riverine country and the spectacular cliffs,â€? he said. A guided brochure will navigate patrons through the now self-sustainable trail and Mr Williams said the Trust had received a great community response to the opening. Wilabalangaloo closed over three years ago due to a decline in patronage and volunteer support but a grant allowed the National Trust to revamp the reserve’s infrastructure.

Servicing your car is a must REGULARLY servicing your car is important to help extend the life of your vehicle. To keep your car running smoothly, there are many factors to keep in mind: • Modern engine oil has detergent properties which are designed to keep internal moving parts clean by carrying contaminants from by-products of combustion and heat in suspension, in a similar way to dishwashing detergent. As oil is pumped around the engine, these contaminants are trapped in the filter. When the oil remains in the engine for too long, it starts to become saturated with contaminates, causing oil to thicken and clog the filter, and oil galleries to critical moving parts (similar to fatty foods blocking human body arteries), eventually causing engine failure. • Coolant, if left in the engine too long, breaks down, losing its protective properties and eventually becoming acidic, attacking the radiator, seals and hoses etc. • Brake fluid, by nature of its chemical constituency, absorbs and carries moisture from the atmosphere which in turn lowers its boiling point (brake fluid is exposed to very high temperatures, especially in heavy or emergency braking). When fluid boils, it turns from liquid

to vapour which is compressed, causing the brake pedal to go to the floor. Moisture in brake fluid also causes corrosion to brake cylinders and ABS (Anti-lock brake system) modulators in turn, creating costly repairs. • Brake pads can also wear out unnoticed, causing metal contact with brake drums and rotors, further adding to repair costs. • Tyres not being rotated regularly within regular servicing will wear prematurely.


• Worn steering and suspension joints can be a safety issue. • Air and fuel filters eventually become blocked causing fuel economy and performance problems. Riverland Auto & 4WD is a one-stop service centre, covering all areas of vehicle maintenance. The business can replace tyres, carry out wheel alignments, do ultra-sonic cleaning and testing of injectors and even manufacture new air-conditioning hoses, all in one stop.


TWO of Loxton’s major sporting complexes require extensive repairs following significant ongoing damage from leaking roofs. While the ageing Loxton Recreation Centre requires major upgrades to its roof, the Loxton Sporting Complex now also requires thousands of dollars of repair work to fix leaks. Loxton Waikerie Council corporate and community services director Ruth Firstbrook will recommend a permanent repair costing almost $7000 at tomorrow night’s council meeting. “We’re looking at things that are well over 30 years old,� she said. “It is just wear and tear and things breaking down as they do. “It’s been an ongoing leak and we are recommending to resolve it rather than patch it.� It is understood damage has been caused to the wood and gyprock in the sporting complex roof, with paint also peeling back due to the dampness caused by the leak. “The club have been fantastic,� Mrs Firstbrook said. “They’ve been patching up and painting up and doing their best but I think it’s time to resolve it. “I don’t think we can continue

Dedicated volunteer celebrates half a century for Country Fire Service

Fighting fires all in a day’s work for Mike By CALLUM TRIFONOFF AFTER battling intense flames and acrid smoke for over 50 years, Mid-Murray CFS group officer Mike Arnold will be recognised for his dedicated service this Sunday. Many from the CFS with whom Mr Arnold was involved in the past half a century will get together to honour the loyal servant, at the Waikerie Club, with Adelaide Metropolitan Fire Service chief officer Grant Lupton among those who will attend. Mr Arnold is flattered to have a celebration in his honour. “It’ll be great to have the day, seeing people you haven’t seen for 30 or 40 years,” he said. “We’ve got about 150 coming.” Mr Arnold’s long association with the CFS began when it was recommended to him by a friend. “There was a chap who was a returned soldier and he convinced me that they needed some younger ones,” he said. “I’ve enjoyed getting younger ones involved and I’ve enjoyed being part of competitions to find the best CFS team in the state. “Unfortunately now, we’re the only state that doesn’t run

the hotel, we saved $8 million worth,” he said. Mr Arnold admitted after seeing the blaze, it has made him reconsider his future, deciding to retire from the CFS, effective as of

next year. “Another year will see me out, it’s about time I left it to the young ones,” he said. “You can see you’re getting older when you see a big fire like that.”

Seven year drag over? By ZOE WATSON AFTER seven frustrating years, the Riverland Motorsport Club is finally nearing the starting line on its recently named Riverland Motorplex, to be based at Barmera. The drag strip and driver education facility concept was first proposed in 2004 but only in recent months have government requirements been officially approved. Club president Denis Oates described the lengthy application process as a “battle with bureaucracy”. “We had a lot of stipulations we had to meet before we could get started and we’ve met those now,” he said. According to Mr Oates, the club’s next major hurdle will be sourcing funding for the project. “We’re in the process of getting the final working drawings, so we know exactly what the whole complex is going to cost, before we apply for funding,” he said. “We’re hoping to secure enough funding to complete the project in one hit.” With the vision close to becoming a reality, Mr Oates sees the facility as a drawcard for the Riverland. “We’ll bring people in from all over Australia with this,” he said. “People won’t realise the significance of this facility until it’s up and running and then they’ll be wondering why it didn’t happen years ago. “There’s been people over the years that have said that it’ll never happen because of the timeframe involved but we’re getting so close now.” Mr Oates said it had taken “a whole lot of determination” to get the project to its current stage. “We’ve stuck it out and we’ve got it,” he said. “It’ll be a relief when I see the grader go down the strip.”


Distinguished professor guest speaker at AGM THE Renmark to the Border Local Action Planning Association will host renowned speaker Professor Timothy Reeves at its annual general meeting next month. Having worked in agricultural research for four decades, Professor Reeves has substantial experience in the research, development and extension of sustainable agricultural production systems both in Australia and globally. Professor Reeves began his career at Rutherglen Research Institute where he was a pioneer of research in north eastern Victoria. His subsequent career has included senior positions in the Department of Agriculture, Victoria, Foundation Professor of Sustainable Agricultural Production, Adelaide University and director general of the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre, based in Mexico. Professor Reeves is the director of the Grains Research and Development Corporation and Future Farm Industries Cooperative Research Centre. The presentation will illustrate the major global changes impacting on current and future food production and the challenges these generate for farmers and the community. He will explore the opportunities that exist with an increased demand for food and the approaches necessary for local farmers to meet these challenges and seize opportunities. “New technologies, new systems, new marketing and new thinking is part of that,” Professor Reeves said. “I will comment on food waste. “I have just returned from work in Rome, with the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations and they are very interested in reducing

food waste.” Professor Reeves recently gave similar talks at Rutherglen, Swan Hill, Wycheproof, St.Arnaud and Melbourne and has been the keynote speaker at various grower meetings. According to Professor Reeves, his presentation will be of interest to both farmers and the local community. The Renmark to the Border LAP Association annual general meeting is on October 5 and is open to the public. The association encourages anyone interested, especially in local food production and its future, to attend. For more information, please contact Anna on 8586 6633.

This is a Berri Centenary Event

Sponsored by Berri Drycleaners

Celebrating a century of fashion F ASHIONS from the past 100 years will be on display at the Zonta Club of Riverland’s Berri on Parade next Friday. Featuring bridal gowns, debutante dresses, sporting and school uniforms, the parade will illustrate a century of Berri history through fashion. The parade, with its centenary twist, is being held as a fundraiser for the local Zonta branch, which is involved in international projects supporting the advancement of women’s status. Zonta club member and parade organiser Jenny Todd said the idea came about 18 months ago and the community has since contributed closets full of “weird and wonderful” items from across the decades to the cause. Mrs Todd hopes the community relishes the chance to reminisce. “Everyone has treasures in their cupboard and it’s exciting to see them brought to life by lovely young models,” she said. “There’s some interesting pieces...we have a bright yellow mini dress and 50’s dresses which are back in fashion now. “The bridal gowns are special and we have some beautiful evening gowns from the 40s, 50s and 60s, even a dress worn by a ‘Miss

Berri’ of the 70s.” Mrs Todd said some items have interesting stories accompanying them. “The pleasure people get from getting things out and going through them, that’s the beauty of it,” she said. “A lady brought in a wedding dress worn on October 6, 1951, in Berri, the same day my mother was married in Loxton, whose dress I then wore for my own wedding.” Part of the collection is a pant suit that Mrs Todd wore when she first took over Berri business Adrienne’s Frock Salon. “One of the parade’s young models wants it for her own wardrobe,” she said. “Don’t throw away today’s day they will be very special.” Club president and Centenary Committee chairperson Marg Colby said it was great to combine a Zonta fundraiser with a centenary event. Mrs Colby said celebrating Berri’s centenary is important, as it is a unique town. “It’s a town with a massive amount of community spirit,” she said. “In the early days, people volunteered their time to set up

hospitals, schools, councils. “Just about everything that happens in Berri happens as a result of community spirit. “We’re hoping for both young and old to come out and enjoy this centenary event.” Showing fashions from across generations will interest many people, according to Mrs Colby. “We think it will be a good night for families and for children to see these different outfits and see what people wore,” she said. “It’s really interesting to see how people dressed and how fashions have changed, or even how fashion designers have revisited ideas,” she said. Tickets to Berri on Parade, which include supper and a drink on arrival, are available from Adrienne’s Frock Salon, Berri, or by phoning 8582 1033.

The Melbourne Cup of the Mallee

Small town comes alive for races LOCALS will be racing to the Mallee for the Mindarie Halidon Cup which will be held this Sunday. Known as the ‘Melbourne Cup of the Mallee’, the event, held by the Mindarie Halidon Racing Club, is currently into its 91st year and is set to attract a large number of people again this year. With a crowd of 1300 in attendance last year, MindarieHalidon Cup Committee secretary Krystina Durdin is hoping for a similar figure this year. “We normally get over 1000 people attending,� Mrs Durdin said. “Most of the crowd is from the South East, Murray Bridge, Tailem Bend and the Riverland with a few coming from Adelaide.� “We’d like to target them and think if they came once, they’d come again and support something that’s been going for 90 plus years.� Mrs Durdin is hoping for good weather to attract a large crowd at this year’s cup. Bookmakers will be on hand to take bets and with a free jumping castle available for children 12 and under, there is something for everyone at the races.

“(People) like the picnic atmosphere,� Mrs Durdin said. “There’s 18 marquees ordered which is a really good sign because marquees normally have a fair amount of people (in them). “People can come along in a group and sit around and I think they just enjoy it, it’s a fair bit of fun.� A popular part of the races is the Mindarie Halidon Fashions of the Field, which offers popular fashions shown off by willing participants. “If you are the winner of the Halidon Fashions of the Field, you get a double pass to the Murray Bridge Gold Cart,� Mrs Durdin said. “You enter into the Fashions of the Field there and if you win that, you are put in as a finalist for Adelaide Cup day. “If you win that, you win a car.� The event is fully catered with both bar and canteen facilities and there is a strictly no byo alcohol rule. Mrs Durdin encouraged people to dress up for the the Cup and enjoy a day of racing. “It adds a bit more fun to it, with people walking around dressed up,� she said.

LOXTON resident Shane Semmler said the move to solar power in March last year was one of the best decisions he has made. Having assessed the benefits of solar for several years, Mr Semmler committed to the project and said he will never look back. “We’re doing our little bit for the environment,” he said. “We’d looked at it over the last few years. “We were looking for the right time to be able to do it and we assessed the benefits of solar.”

When Mr Semmler moved to the Riverland several years ago, his home was already running on solar hot water, making it easier for the full conversion to solar power. “(Solar hot water) has always been a benefit,” he said. Mr Semmler recommends solar power to Riverlanders and said the region is the perfect area to have a system installed. “We don’t notice any difference at all from what we had previously, it’s had no (bad) impact,” he said. “We (also) have heating for our swimming pool, we’re using as much as we can.”

STATE and Federal Government rebates have made solar power more and more attractive to consumers. With the Riverland having more hours of sun than Adelaide and many other communities around South Australia, the Riverland is ideal for solar power. “(Solar power) has been around for a while in the Riverland,” G B Electrical & Security Services co-owner Ben Platten said. “(For a while, interest in solar) was a bit slower than it is now but it has been of interest for five or six years.” G B Electrical & Security Services has a solar power system installed on its roof and Mr Platten said it has helped cut the electricity bills. “We’ve only put a small system on but we’re looking at going a bit larger,” Mr Platten said. “I think the rising price of electricity would be the biggest factor and the state and federal rebates have made it a bit more attractive as well.

“The Federal Government offers three times the renewable energy certificates on the first one and a half kilowatts and that’s available until the end of June next year. “If you sign up before the end of September, there’s a feed-in tariff of 44 cents (from the State Government).”

With enough systems around now, most people know someone who’s got solar.

Mr Platten has many tips for Riverlanders who are considering installing solar power. “Ask lots of questions, don’t take people’s word for it straight off,” he said. “Get a few opinions, I’d look for at least two or three quotes, compare the quotes,

compare the products. “There are cheap systems out there but the components that are used in the cheap systems are normally where the price difference is.” There was a time when Riverlanders were hesitant at the prospect of having solar power installed in their home but that has changed, according to Mr Platten. “People were sceptical of how well it actually worked,” he said. “With enough systems around now, most people know someone who’s got solar and you can actually find out from them how well it works.” Mr Platten sees a big future in the Riverland for solar power, especially amongst local businesses. “We’ve installed for businesses, systems, just to offset their electricity,” he said. “Moving into the future, a lot more businesses are looking at it because the price of electricity has become a burden on their bills.”

Solar farm changes power perspective HAVING a solar farm for nearly three years changed the way Lyrup man Andrew Caire has looked at power forever. Since installing the farm in November, 2008, Mr Caire has been dedicated to solar power and looking after the environment. “(The solar panels) have changed the way I think about and manage power,” he said. “I’ve also become aware about how much sunlight we do get in the Riverland. “It’s just about sustainability and making sure we look after the planet.” Mr Caire said the feed-in tariff has been very beneficial and he likes to spread the word

about solar power. “One of the main benefits from installing the solar panels has been the feed-in tariff from the State Government,” Mr Caire said. “It’s also been a wonderful opportunity to spread the news of the benefits of solar to people.” He also had a handy tip for people starting out with solar power. “The main thing is to make sure you’re using a good quality panel and a good quality inverter,” he said. “That’s so you can have longevity with your panels. “Make sure you put on as many (panels) as you can to cover your entire usage.”

By ZOE WATSON ROYAL Adelaide showgoers have inundated the SA Citrus Board site, sampling fresh juice and getting a taste of Riverland citrus. SA Citrus Industry Development Board chairman and local grower Peter Walker said the show was an opportunity to demonstrate that Riverland citrus is the “best fruit in the world and only 200 kilometres away”. “We showcased South Australia, we promoted the Riverland, every product on our stand was Riverland fruit,” Mr Walker said. “We’re proud South Australians and proud Riverlanders. “We had growers at stands, people cutting up fruit, all new varieties and old varieties which enabled people to taste test tangelos, blood oranges,

Washington navels, pink grapefruit… virtually all the fruit that’s in season now.” Mr Walker said he became more enthused with each trip to the show. “You see people learning about the different varieties, getting to try them and really enjoying the experience,” he said. “We had a juicer there and sold fresh orange juice. “By the final Saturday, we had processed over eight tonnes of oranges, that’s a lot of oranges and a lot of juice.” Over 22,000 tangelos and oranges were provided as part of the Yellow Brick Road showbag which proved very popular. Waikerie prize-winner Anthony Fulwood said he’d only been entering his products for a few years but encourages other growers to get in-

Photo: CALLUM TRIFONOFF By ZOE WATSON MORE than 500 children from up to 11 schools in the district congregated at Barmera Primary School to educate each other about the environment as part of Australia Post’s Kids Teaching Kids Week. Kicking off the local event, Year 5/6 students performed a dance-drama based on the 1956 floods. Students from Barmera Primary and Glossop High schools, together with representatives from the Waikerie Primary Environmental Council and Riverland Youth Environmental Council then ran workshops for the students. Barmera Primary School teacher Glenys Matthews said this year’s event gave local students the opportunity to shine. “In the past we’ve had environmental organisations doing

things as well,” she said. “This year, it’s purely kids teaching kids.” Ms Matthews said it was important for the children to take ownership of the event. “The idea behind the program is they (the kids) come up with their own ideas of what to present, then they work on that, research it. “It’s really important to give them a chance to be responsible at working on something themselves and be independent.” According to Ms Matthews, the program was valuable in improving the students’ public speaking skills and their appreciation of the environment. The students were among 20,000 nationally to take part in Kids Teaching Kids, which was founded 12 years ago by environmental ambassador and former Young Australian of the Year Arron Wood.

ALMOST 100 people attended the annual Senior Citizens Zone Rally in Berri recently. The event was held in the town especially to coincide with Berri’s centenary celebrations and attracted seniors from towns including Bordertown, Pinnaroo, Lameroo, Morgan, Waikerie, Loxton, Berri and Renmark. Of the eight senior citizen clubs in attendance, a number of them peformed entertaining skits. Berri Senior Citizens Club president Brian Schultz said a lot of hard work went into organising the event. “It is just something different,” he said. “With some of them, it’s the only time they ever see one another.” ■ FUN: Waikerie’s Vern Trezise and Con Traeger perform a bowls skit during the seniors rally.

Preschool celebrates milestone THE Berri Community Preschool this week celebrates half a century of preparing children for life. Since 1961, the preschool has been a four-year-old’s launching pad into school and beyond and current director Allayne Frankel said it is a wonderful place for children and staff to be. “We prepare (the children) for not only school but for living in the community,� Mrs Frankel said. “We have so many wonderful resources to help children learn through play, develop social skills and extend themselves. “We have magnificent staff here. “Heather Baker has been here for over 15 years and worked here in the 1970s and Judy Ingerson, around 16 (years). “Julie Plush has returned for her second stint and Mandy Page is a welcome newcomer. “Popi Poulos, Jess Symens and Erica Kalman are also parttime staff here.� Mrs Frankel said the youngsters always look forward to attending the preschool. “They all particularly enjoy the social aspect,� she said. “For some, it is the first opportunity to develop friendships outside of the family.�

To celebrate 50 years of service, the preschool is holding a party for children and staff every day this week. “Next week, we’re (also) having two days where the grandparents are coming in,� Mrs Frankel said. Mrs Frankel believes the preschool is in a wonderful location in Berri. Having seen many children come through the preschool, Mrs Frankel tells each graduating child never to forget their early roots. “We tell them ‘don’t forget us, you’ll change and we may not know what you look like later but we probably won’t change, so don’t forget to say hello to us’,� she said. “A lot of families do and they’ll speak to us down the street.� Mrs Frankel said the Berri community has always supported the preschool at times of good and bad. “The local community raised a significant amount of money to get the preschool happening 50 plus years ago,� she said. “The late Mr Doug Rosenthal was the inaugural president and he donated a new Holden car to be used as a raffle prize for the fundraising. “His son Jim was also president when his children went here. “The Apex and Rotary Clubs were heavily involved in assisting with the building and development of the grounds.�

Former staff members remember good times

The children played and had time for life skills before they went off to school.

SINCE 1980, former Berri Community Preschool director Maurine Moss has been delighted at how the preschool has progressed over 50 years. Mrs Moss said the equipment used during her 16 years working at the preschool has advanced from what can be seen at the kindergarten today. “(It’s) just out of this world,” she said. “We just had make believe stuff, we had two trestles with a door in it, we didn’t have the money like today.

“We had an old combi van to play in, a couple of swings and a sand-pit. Mrs Moss said working with the children was always a pleasure. “It was just a delight,” she said. While only director for three years, Vicki Deakin looks back fondly on her time at the preschool. It is the preparation for life ahead which Mrs Deakin gains the most appreciation from. “The children played and had time for life skills before they went off to

school,” she said. “As far as kindergarten is concerned, it’s very much a community-based centre. “Back in our time, it was the first opportunity for children to come and be with other people, other than family members.” For Mrs Deakin, the changes made to the preschool over the years have been beneficial. “There’s always good with change,” she said. “I think technology has been fantastic to a certain extent.”

■ TEA PARTY: Preschoolers Nikki and Tara serve a gritty morning tea to (from left) past preschool director Vicki Deakin, current director Allayne Frankel and past director Maurine Moss.

■ HEALTHY: Even when she is having a party, Marley knows it is important to make healthy food choices.

Dedicated director FOR three decades Berri Community Preschool director Allayne Frankel has poured her heart into her role. Having taught at Berri Primary School previously, Mrs Frankel said she loves working at the preschool. “There’s lots of joys (about working here),” she said. “I love working in a team setting and the atmosphere. “I have really enjoyed teaching three generations of quite a few families.” Mrs Frankel said she enjoys seeing the preschoolers grow. “Four-year-old children are just tremendous, they’re so innocent and they have the capacity to learn so much,” she said. “It’s great to see them blossom.

“Four-year-olds are so vibrant and responsive.” Mrs Frankel can recall many of the preschoolers she has been associated with in the past. “I do my best to remember as many people as I can,” she laughed. “I remember faces better than names.” Since the introduction of the Universal Access Program last year, the children have an extra three hours per week at preschool. “The physical size of the place has grown as well, we were able to acquire the adjacent channel reserve which almost doubled the play area,” Mrs Frankel said. “We’re always looking to develop special areas in the preschool, especially in the outdoor learning area.”

Your Finance



Some super ways to review your insurance cover By AMP Financial Planner Veronica Rutherford* IT IS a timely opportunity to review your insurance cover when bringing your super together. Insurance can provide financial protection for you and your family, and insuring through super is simple, costeffective and convenient. Life insurance offers financial protection for your family and other dependants in the event of your death. It can cover expenses, such as home loan repayments, school fees, outstanding debts and other financial commitments. It can also provide your dependants with a lump sum payment. Typically, many employees have life insurance through an employer-sponsored super plan.

Some super plans also offer salary continuance, as well as total and permanent disablement insurance, making it a complete solution for your personal insurance needs. There are some great reasons why you should consider including your insurance within an employer sponsored super plan:

Competitive rates â– Choosing life insurance or salary continuance through an employer-sponsored super fund can be a great way to keep premiums competitively low.

Automatic acceptance â– Most employer sponsored super plans provide

employees with automatic acceptance of insurance cover up to certain amounts without the need to provide health evidence.

ally free of tax (particularly where paid to a spouse or a dependent child).

Managing cash flow

â– Many super plans offer life insurance and some offer death and total disablement insurance, as well as salary continuance so you can manage your insurance needs in one place.

■Insurance premiums are deducted automatically from your super balance, so you can protect yourself and your family’s future without affecting your take-home pay and everyday cash flow.

Tax-effective â– Contributions tax is not payable on the insurance premium portion of your super contributions. This means that, for employees, insurance premiums will generally be paid with pre-tax super contributions. Also, while life insurance premiums are generally not tax deductible for employees, the benefit payable upon death is gener-


Do you need to consolidate your insurance cover? It is estimated that many Australians have at least two super accounts. If you have more than one account, chances are you are paying multiple fees that could erode your retirement savings and you could be paying for insurance cover in each of these accounts. When consolidating super accounts, your financial planner can help you make sure you have the right type and right amount of insurance cover and can help de-

termine if you could potentially encounter any barriers to consolidating your insurance cover. For employees, there can be significant benefits to consolidating insurance cover in an employer sponsored plan:

Making claims easier â– Having insurance spread over more than one account increases the administrative effort for you or your loved ones if separate claims are required on your cover for each account.

Streamlined underwriting â– Some super plans offer automatic acceptance up to a certain amount of cover when personal super accounts are being consolidated. Before consolidating your insurance within exist-

ing super accounts, check the amount of cover you can get through a streamlined underwriting process. Speak to your planner about how you could make the most of your insurance when consolidating your super.

HY are houseboats always so popular? Because you can constantly change your holiday destination. When you get on board, you don’t necessarily have to stay there. Get on board with some food and drinks and take off for the next part of your holiday, or just bring some friends and have fun, it’s your choice. The first choice though is what sort of boat do you want? Well here is a good allrounder. A three cabin houseboat with evaporative aircon to keep comfortable and a 50 HP mariner outboard motor to keep you bowling along. Whether you want a cheap family getaway or a party boat, this boat is a great starter to get you on board and on the river.

Singing for Australia IN EARLY September, Cathy Miegel and Janet Flohr were sponsored to attend the Sydney 2011 Sing Australia Annual Gathering in Darling Harbour, Sydney. Cathy is the accompanist of the Lameroo Sing Australia Choir in Lameroo and Janet is the leader. Over the weekend, held at the Convention Centre, 1000 members of choirs from all over Australia joined to meet and sing. To hear so many voices join as one was an amazing experience and demonstrated the whole concept of Sing Australia. The song books used are the same for each choir which means when any members join together, they can immediately sing together, often including three part harmonies.

The concept was developed by national director of Sing Australia, Colin Slater, who spoke over the weekend about the health benefits of singing and how, as a society, many of us have lost our confidence to dare to sing in public. Sing Australia aims to change that by making their choirs all inclusive with no solo parts and accepting all people who want to have a go. Ita Buttrose and General Peter Cosgrove are patrons of the organisation and both addressed the gathering over the weekend. The Sing Australia group in Lameroo has about 15 regular singers, meeting every Wednesday at the Lameroo Day Centre at 7.30pm. Please phone Janet Flohr if you would like more information (8576 3074).

EVENING Star Quilters and Renmark's Ps & Qs are two groups of quilters putting on their bi-annual quilt show in the Renmark Paringa Council Centre, on Renmark Avenue, during Rose Week. They have a hundred plus quilts on display plus other textile related items to view, a trading table with lots of homemade items and raffle tickets to win a stunning quilt. They support many chari-

ties and community groups. The display will be at the Paringa Council Centre on October 22 and 23, from 9am to 4.30pm. n quilter: Judy Maier with her quilt design which will be on show at the Renmark Paringa Council Centre during Rose Week. Photo: supplied

Back to Berri celebrations AS PART of the Berri Centenary Celebrations there is the Back to Berri Dinner at the Berri Hotel, being held at the Berri Resort Hotel at 6.30pm on October 8. An exciting evening of music and history, with a

MTA appoints president

Holden’s fuel efficient options

THE Motor Trade Association of South Australia recently appointed a new president at its 85th annual general meeting. Neville Gibb was elected unopposed as the association’s new president. Working in the industry at his Jamestown family run Mitsubishi dealership since 1977, Neville has been a valuable contributor to the local retail motor trade industry having represented the Mid North zone for more than two decades. Mr Gibb has also been a member of the MTA’s board of management for the past 14 years and has also been vice president to Colin Clark for the past three years. Mr Gibb said he is excited about taking on the role. “Colin has done a great job in the last three years in building our capacity to deliver quality training through expanding our Group Training Scheme,� Mr Gibb said. “(He) has been integral in refocusing our national representation which has led to the creation of the Australian Motor Industry Federation in 2010. “We will continue to invest in training for the retail motor trades as we continue to remain an industry in skills shortage and need to ensure that there are enough quality apprentices coming through the system to meet the future demands of South Australia.� MTA executive director

■RELIABLE: Holden Commodore’s Omega sedan is a popular fuel efficient option. HOLDEN has made fuel-efficiency improvements across its popular V6-powered Commodore range with this year’s model on sale this month. Commodore Omega sedan, powered by the Australian-built 3.0 litre SIDI V6 engine, achieves new fuel economy of 8.9L/100 kilometres, down from 9.1L/100km on the previous model. Holden has delivered consistent efficiency gains for Commodore since the launch of the VE range in 2006. Fuel economy on the entry-level Omega sedan has improved 18 per cent over the life of the model with the addition of Spark Ignition Direct Injection (SIDI) technology, calibration improvements and other weight saving and aero enhancements. The continued focus on fuel

economy means Commodore is still the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the large car segment and is competitive against many popular mid-sized four-cylinder vehicles. With new models, all Commodore vehicles will become flex-fuel capable with 3.6L SIDI V6 engine, powering models like the popular SV6, now also able to run on bio-ethanol/E85; a blend of up to 85 per cent ethanol and 15 per cent petrol. Bio-ethanol is a cleaner burning fuel made in Australia from the waste by-product of wheat and sugar, sorghum and in the future, potentially household garbage. Holden chairman and managing director Mike Devereux said Holden had taken a leadership position in Australia, advocating for and stimulating demand for bio-ethanol.

“The entire Commodore range is now flex-fuel capable,� he said. “Caltex and other fuel retailers are making high ethanol-blend fuels available and we are working with our consortium partners to build Australia’s first second-generation ethanol plant to turn rubbish into fuel.� “Commodore drivers who run their car on bio-ethanol/E85 can reduce their well-to-wheel CO2 emissions by up to 40 per cent compared to petrol. “As well as adding flex-fuel capability, we aim to continuously improve Commodore with every model year. “Our engineers and designers are constantly striving to improve fuel efficiency and performance and to enhance the look and feel of the car for our customers.�

John Chapman said Mr Gibb will be a valuable contributor to the industry as president of the MTA. “There are some significant challenges for the motor trade industry in the short and medium terms and Neville has the right skills and passion to help the association navigate through them,� Mr Chapman said. “We are all excited about what the future holds and working together to continue to grow the $8 billion retail motor trade industry which is a critical industry for the South Australian economy.�

P et s Caring for your pet sheep ONE of the most important factors in keeping a sheep as a pet is shelter and protection from predators. To keep them safe, it is best to pen them at night. The pen should be large enough for your sheep to exercise and have an undercover area to provide shelter from the elements. The penâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fencing should be stock proof and high enough to ensure stray dogs cannot gain access to your pet. There are many materials that can be used for bedding for sheep, including straw, hay, sawdust and shredded paper. Straw is the traditional bedding material and is the cheaper option. Sawdust is not the ideal

bedding material for wooled sheep as it gets in their fleeces but it is fine for the haired pets. Shredded paper is more absorbent than straw and hay but is not as easy to handle. A container of fresh water should be available at all times because sheep need at least 4.5 litres of water per day.

Maintaining your sheep SHEEP will regularly need to have their hooves checked for diseases and they should be trimmed around every six months. When it comes to sheering sheep, this should be done at least once a year and they should also be crutched between shearings. Sheep are susceptible

to external and internal parasites. It is vital to keep up-todate with parasite prevention treatments. Lambs need to have their tails docked (cut off) within the first six weeks of their life.

Feeding your sheep SHEEP need the right nutrition and the most popular source of food is grass. However, clover, hay, lucerne and saltbush are other notable choices. Sheep with higher nutritional needs, such as lambs with expected rapid growth rates, can often be fed grain. There are also many benefits to bottle feeding lambs as they will not be afraid to go near humans as they grow up.

Chaffey Theatre plans second show due to sell-out

Getting bored of reality television?

Scooby-Doo show in popular demand By ZOE WATSON â&#x2013; POPULAR: Berri Primary School students and teachers get up close to Scooby-Doo during a recent visit to their school.

THE Riverland will be treated to a second Scooby-Doo Live! Musical Mysteries show after the initial performance sold out. After a sell-out season interstate, Scooby-Doo Live! Musical Mysteries will tour South Australia in the upcoming school holidays. Due to high demand, a second performance, to be held at 12.30pm on October 15, is now on sale. Chaffey manager Sharlene Martin said tickets were selling fast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rare that live childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s productions come out to regional areas so people are making the most of it,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excellent to see such high demand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more shows sell, the more presenters will bring.â&#x20AC;? In this brand new, live musical production, Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. gang have been called upon to help solve an epic mystery. The show features big musical numbers including theme song ScoobyDoo, Where Are You? and new songs Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Mystery Inc., Round Every Corner and A Musical Mystery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting as a parent that shows are coming out and kids donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be taken to Adelaide to be able to see them,â&#x20AC;? Ms Martin said.


Movie of the week Hall Pass THE plot sounds cliched but the idea of a hall pass no doubt appeals to a portion of the male population. In this comedy, Rick (Owen Wilson) and Fred (Jason Sudeikis) are best mates who become restless with single life and convince their wives to give them a week off from marriage. Some parts are funny but overall pretty corny.

CD of the week The Fall - Gorillaz THE latest Gorillaz album was released with little promotion, unlike Plastic Beach, which instantly became a fan favourite. This title lacks the star studded line-up of cameos usually seen on Gorillazâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; albums but is a fine effort considering it was almost entirely made on an Ipad. While this album has flashes of brilliance, to me, it just feels like something is lacking.

Book of the week Sleeping Around - Brian Thacker

Local book award

â&#x2013; CHOICE: Riverland author Liz Frankel (left) and artist Garry Duncan with award presenter Nerrissa Galloway after their childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book award win. AWARD winning Riverland author Liz Frankel and artist Garry Duncan were rewarded for their collaborative work on a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book during a writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; event at McLaren Vale on the weekend. The pair won the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Award for best picture book at the South Australian Writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Festival on Saturday. The winning publication, titled Hairy Nose. Itchy Butt, received the award after around 1200 school children voted the book as their favourite from eight shortlisted titles for the award. Ms Frankel said receiving such an award is an honour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Garry and I are really excited to receive the award,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is such a thrill that the children who reviewed the books chose Hairy Nose. Itchy Butt as their favourite. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a real honour as we consider them our most important critics.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, the publication is being presented to 67 schools and libraries on behalf of the SA Murray Darling Basin NRM Board.

WHEN reality television shows first hit the screen, everyone was all for them. The genre was something new, modern and most of all, supposedly dealt with real life scenarios. We went through Big Brother, which had its moment of fame before phasing out quicker than hacky sack. Farmer Wants a Wife is still hanging in there and RBT will probably never run out of drink drivers to film. How long can a reality series continue for? The new series of X-Factor has just started and Junior MasterChef is on the way and forgive me for passing a giant yawn their way. Reality cooking has been done over and over and the whole talent show thing is dead in the water. We need a reality rethink.

TRAVEL books can be boring, mundane and predictable but Sleeping Around is anything but that. Brian Thacker takes you on his journey around the world, meeting people and sleeping on their couches. Brian meets a range of interesting characters, finding out what sort of people lend their couches to strangers.

Panthers’ premiership spoils IT WAS a moment the Loxton North players will relish forever. The final siren sounded across Panther Park on Saturday and as the Loxton North players celebrated, the contingent of the team’s fans scrambled onto the field to congratulate the premiers. Loxton North had just beaten Waikerie in the 2011 grand final and coach Craig Wooldridge said the feeling was almost surreal. “I think at about the 20 minute mark it was all sealed, we weren’t going to lose,” he said. “Most of us just hopped up out of the coaches’ box and just stood there and took it all in for five or six minutes. “When the siren went, it was just an amazing feeling that the game had finished and we’d won. “Just watching the boys’ faces just to see how happy they are was the real pleasing thing for me.” A wind pushed across the ground favouring Waikerie’s end and the Magpies took the advantage with early touches. Captain Ben Venning kicked the first major of the match following a strong tackle on Michael Scott. However, Loxton North took hold of the contest after young wingman Andrew Baker goaled from the boundary, swinging the football back from right to left with the breeze. After missing a shot from 30 metres out, directly in front, minutes before, Panther Jamie Ferguson goaled unchecked. Baker, who had a strong impact on the match early, received a handball in the middle of the ground from Ryan Proud and finished with two bounces and a bending right foot snap. Venning marked on the lead ahead of defender Anton Cook and goaled after previously


BRAD PERRY missing two shots. When Ryan Gray goaled after the siren from a holding free kick, the Panthers had a 10 point quarter time lead. It had been a close quarter with Andrew Bachmann busy despite his opponent Brad Mules getting plenty of the football, while Tim Arnold, Josh Nelson and Ryan Proud all had important possessions.

When the siren went, it was just an amazing feeling that the game had finished and we’d won.

A Justin Dellazoppa tackle against Josh Voigt saw Waikerie open the second quarter with a major but it would be lean pickings for the rest of the term. The match turned into an arm wrestle halfway through the second quarter before a turnover after a Dan Proud tackle ended with a typical Brad Williams long bomb and Nathan Brown roving goal. Michael Arnold began to stamp his mark on the match, giving the Magpie forwards nothing. A ferocious tackle on Joel Fladrich handed Baker his third goal and a telling play involving Gray off half back to Ryan Proud on the wing, followed by a Josh Nelson

kick and Rhett Davis mark on the goal line. Waikerie failed to handle the wind, with Michael Bratton brilliantly intercepting a pass only for Cameron Hawke to miss and Nathan Tape to do the same minutes later. With Cook’s fist proving too good for Venning, the forward was moved to defence. Hawke failed to make the distance from 40 metres out, while Bachmann and Craig Miller also could not capitalise on scoring attempts. The Panthers could have gone further ahead at halftime but a swirling Justin Proud shot hit the post, leaving Loxton North 17 points ahead. It was shutdown football in the third quarter with grey clouds creeping closer and the Magpies registering just one behind. Ryan Proud snapped a brilliant goal late in the term to extend the lead, while two Waikerie snaps did not register a score. Geordie Franks, who had been well held by Steven Braun, slotted his first goal to give the Panthers a 31 point lead going into the final term. The heavens opened up early in the final quarter and with the lights on, Dellazoppa attempted to lift the Magpies with a running goal from the pocket. Roberts quickly replied following a free kick and a 50 metre penalty gave defender Michael Arnold a rare major. Baker passed to Franks for his second and Williams emphatically raised his arms and was embraced by team-mates following a trademark goal from outside 50, for his second of the quarter. Venning would goal late after an arm chopping free kick but

the game was well sealed with Loxton North recording a 42 point win. Wooldridge said a great start was the key to the fantastic victory. “That was my message, if we were with them at a quarter time, there is not many teams that can keep up with us for the whole game,” he said. “To kick four goals to two in that first quarter when it counted, that obviously set the win up for us.” While Michael Arnold was named best-a-field, Wooldridge said there were a number of memorable performances on the day. “I think Ryan Proud was just awesome all day,” he said. “His first half was as good as I’ve seen him play and when I needed him to stand up, he stood up. “Young Bakes was just fantastic off a wing and obviously Pickles (Michael Arnold) getting best on ground is just a good reward for a bloke who has been around for a long time and put his heart and soul into the club.”

The future LOXTON North has already begun recruiting for next season after the club’s rise from last year’s fifth position finish to premiers this season. While Michael Arnold and Brad Williams will not play next season, Wooldridge said the key positions can be filled. “We’ve got Josh Voigt there that can play centre half back, so he’ll just have to step up next year and take that role,” he said. “As a third tall, young Mulesy (Brad Mules) is playing a lot bigger than he probably seems. “He can play as a third tall down back because I’m always keen for three talls down back because it

Brad Williams also announced his retirement from A grade football but Wooldridge is hoping to have him back next season. “I’m still hopeful he might play on next year because we really need his experience,” he said. “I’ll let him have a bit of time and see if we can’t talk him around.”

Extra-time delight for Magpies By CALLUM TRIFONOFF AFTER a thrilling draw, Waikerie went on to claim Riverland Football League B grade, back-to-back premierships in extra-time at the weekend. Renmark had been favourite to win the premiership having set the benchmark all season but the Magpies rallied to win 10.8 (68) to the Rovers’ 9.8 (62). Veteran ruckman Brooke Hoad and Casey Somerville were best for the winners, while Reece Glazbrook and Kane Aston were brave in defeat for the Rovers. Waikerie coach Rohan Andrew praised his team’s never-say-die attitude to come from behind to win. “It’s probably one of the best finals I’ve ever been involved with,” Andrew said. “(In extra-time), as a coach it’s out of your control. “You can’t do much other than hope the playing group will get you over the line.” Andrew said the result came down to his side’s previous finals’ experience. “We won last year and we had 12 guys (currently playing) who played in that game,” he said. “The likes of Steve Liebich, Brooke Hoad and Clinton Eustice all had that experience.” The grandfinal victory is the perfect swansong for Andrew who has decided not to continue with his coaching role next season. “I made a decision part way through the season,” he said. “I have no regrets. “I’ve won two premierships in the two years I have been the B grade coach.”

■ WIN: Border Downs Tintinara won back-to-back flags in the Mallee Football League at the weekend. By CALLUM TRIFONOFF BORDER Downs Tintinara has claimed backto-back premierships after a close 17-point win over Murrayville in the Mallee Football League. Despite only losing once in the past two seasons, BDT was pushed all the way by Murrayville and only led at three quarter time by five points. However, last-quarter heroics from half forward flanker Mark Vandeleur and ruckman Kevin Kock saw the Crows over the line 14.11 (95) to Murrayville’s 12.6 (78). BDT coach Todd Butler said whilst the side lost only once, the premiership win was much harder a second time around. “It’s pretty hard to (go back-to-back),” Butler said. “Murrayville was a pretty good side. “When (the boys) got over the line, they were pretty happy.” Vandeleur and Kock’s efforts were strong all day and were well supported by centreman Josh Keller and wingman Clint Richardson. The premiership win was a good turnaround for the Crows, who had an upset loss to Murrayville during the season. “All the games against them, except the first one where we won, had been close,” Butler said. “We knew they had a good side and they had some players we needed to look after and if we did that, we knew we’d be pretty right.”

The best in Riverland hockey By CALLUM TRIFONOFF THE Riverland Hockey Association's night of nights saw the most deserving players, in men and women's hockey come away with top honours. Renmark ace Danial Shawyer and Loxton playercoach B.J. Hammerstein won their respective A grade awards after stand-out seasons. It is Shawyer's first A grade best and fairest, something he has aspired to for 11 years. “I've only won a couple of junior ones; 17s and 18s,” he said. “To win this is great, it's a huge honour.” Shawyer has been surprised by the season, which has seen up and down results for his Renmark side. “It's been one of those years when it depends on the form of the team on the day,” he said. “You can't predict a result beforehand. “It's been a good year, our culture's changed as a club.

■ STARS: Loxton’s men’s B grade best and fairest winner Nathan Fielke and Berri’s women’s B grade winner Natalie Westley at the Riverland Hockey Association presentation recently. Photos: CALLUM TRIFONOFF

“It's just disappointing to end with a preliminary final loss to Waikerie.” For Hammerstein, who has won the award on numerous occasions, it has always been an honour to win as she considers it to be a team award. “It is a team award because I make sure the team gets put before me,” she said. Hammerstein admits, despite her side going into this week's grand final against

Renmark undefeated, it has been a tough season. “It's been consistent for us but it's been a lot harder as well,” she said. “It's a great competition we've got here and it's been a great year.” Meanwhile, Loxton’s Nathan Fielke took out the men’s B grade award, ahead of Berri’s Brendan Crocker. ■ ACE: Loxton veteran B.J.

Loxton tipped to do the double in A grade hockey grand finals By CALLUM TRIFONOFF LOXTON could be set for double success in the Riverland Hockey Association's A grade grand finals, with the men's and women's sides strong favourites to take their respective flags. The men's side will play for redemption, after last year's 3-2 loss to Berri, taking on Waikerie, which it beat in a tight semi-final a fortnight ago. The women's side is in a strong position to win back-to-back titles when it heads into the grand final against Renmark as the undefeated minor premier. Men's coach Kelvin Burgemeister is going into the grand final confident of success but is wary of

several key Waikerie players. “Last time we played Waikerie, Waikerie pretty much threw everything at us but we pretty well held on,” Burgemeister said. “(They have) Michael Camilleri as well as Jason Redemski, then that forward power in Rowan Hope and Ryan Edwards. “If we pick up our defence, which will strangle their scoring, it'll be very hard for them.” Burgemeister is relying heavily on star playmaker Sean Burgess from midfield. “If he plays as good as he did (in the semi-final) and I think he'll play better, then they won't be able to touch him,” he said. “They'll have to do something with him and they tried that with a

Tennis club looks to future WITH the tennis season just around the corner, the Berri-View Lawn Tennis Club is hoping to boost junior numbers. The club will be holding an open day for juniors to come and try the sport later this month with Adelaide tennis icon AnneMarie Handke running a Hot Shots program at local schools. Berri-View Lawn Tennis Club secretary Lyn Pinnington is confident of attracting more people to play tennis. “We’re hoping it’ll be a good season (ahead) working with the schools,” Mrs Pinnington said. “(We’re) hoping new people will come out to

few scares, it’s been in front during the games (at times),” Mrs Weir said. “Loxton has tended to claw their way back and get the goals on the board...Loxton will be the favourite.” The biggest threat to Renmark's attempt at a flag, as has been the case before, is Loxton player-coach and the women's best and fairest player B.J. Hammerstein. “B.J.'s the one who sets it up...if someone's not having a good night, she can certainly turn it on,” Mrs Weir said. “She's got a lot of depth in her side. “Renmark's key players will be (Danielle) Weeks and Juliet Mallinson.”

few rough tactics (in the past) and it didn't work.” Waikerie coach Ryan Edwards knows Burgess is a threat but believes several of his players can match his ability. “Our captain Michael Camilleri, he's been huge for us,” Edwards said. “Rowan Hope is one (who will be a threat), he scored six goals in a grand final two years ago. “He's one who can explode and have a big impact.” Edwards believes the deciding factor will be his side's experience, compared to a relatively inexperienced Loxton side. “We've got a few guys who have played more years of A grade hockey so that'll be one thing,”

tennis. “Hopefully a lot of kids but also people who played in the past, we want them to come out.” Two young tennis players, Marcus Drogemuller and Kieren King, have recently been appointed junior coaching roles within the club. Mrs Pinnington hopes the young coaches will encourage junior players to continue playing on into senior ranks. “There’s always been a lot of juniors playing, we just want them to develop so they continue as seniors,” she said. “A lot of the kids drop out with either going to Adelaide for further education or working at an early age.”

DESPITE all six Riverland Football League clubs having teams in grand finals over the weekend, attendance numbers were down on last year. With 2600 people passing through the gates at Loxton North on Saturday, the figures were below previous years where crowds topped 3000. Riverland Football League executive officer Wendy Kruger said a healthy

crowd attended this year's grand final. “To me, both grand finals (RFL and Independents), just looking around, were both good (in attendance),” Mrs Kruger said. “I would've thought they'd be up from last year but they were still solid crowds.” Mrs Kruger said overall crowd numbers throughout the finals were strong. “I'm very pleased,” she said. “The finals went very

well all around. “It was a great way to finish such a great season.” Those in attendance at Loxton North were well behaved, according to Mrs Kruger. “There was just one incident at Loxton North but security jumped straight onto that,” she said. “I didn't here the umpires be abused, just the normal sledging which you expect but I thought it went very well.”

Bright season ahead for baseball By CALLUM TRIFONOFF DESPITE rumours of a merger, the Riverland Baseball League will have both an A and B grade competition for the upcoming season. The news is welcomed by the league which aims to have a team from each club in each grade this season. Meanwhile, a visit by the Port Adelaide District Baseball Club next Saturday should generate some new interest in the sport.

During its visit, the club will take a junior clinic and play a match against a selected Riverland side. The Riverland league is also hotly pursuing the Gawler Rangers to come and play on the same day. Riverland Baseball League president Phil Goldspink said it is likely the club will come. “At this point in time, Gawler Rangers and the Riverland will play while the coaching clinic is on, then Port

Adelaide Magpies will play us straight after,” Mr Goldspink said. The Riverland Baseball League is hoping the visit by the two SABL sides could inspire juniors to take up baseball, according to Mr Goldspink. “As you can imagine, kids down here don't get a big exposure to baseball because it's not a really big game is Australia,” he said. “Having Port Adelaide come up, the kids can look at Adelaide's best.”

Baseball legend returns â&#x2013; From Page 40 Luke is a member of a family that during their time in the Riverland warranted legendary status not only for their participation in sport but also for their contribution to sport and to the community generally. Parents Ken and Robin, children Emily, Melony, Luke, Lars, Alice and Ace were all involved, with the baseball and softball scenes benefiting in particular.

It was as â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of the best pitching prospects in the sportâ&#x20AC;? that he gained an invitation to try out for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Timeâ&#x20AC;? in America but speaking to respected Riverland authority on the game Kym Bament, who has been closely associated with the Prokopec family, he said â&#x20AC;&#x153;the scouts were also aware of Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential as a catcher and with the batâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His height was probably against him as a 5â&#x20AC;&#x2122;11â&#x20AC;? pitcher,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over there they like to have 6â&#x20AC;&#x2122;4â&#x20AC;? blokes dominating the batters.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x2013; PITCH: Former Riverlander and Major League baseballer Luke Prokopec pitching for Toronto during his career in the USA and (below) pitching for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Catching up with Luke himself, he explained that it was all about his â&#x20AC;&#x153;profilesâ&#x20AC;? that showed he was more suited to be a catcher than a pitcher. Luke moved to the USA as a 17 year old in 1995 to join the Los Angeles Dodgers, a club formed way back in

1883, and spent until 2000 in the minor competitions. He battled with severe home sickness and probably that contributed to him struggling to reach his best but with amazing support from his partner, Renmark girl Andrea Pendle, who eventually joined him over or call 1800 186 306

there in 1999, and his family back home, his grit and determination saw him finally break into the Majors - as a pitcher. From 2000, when he was mentioned amongst candidates for rookie of the year, to 2001, he enhanced his reputation on the mound with the Dodgers. Talking to Luke about those years in the minor competitions, he said â&#x20AC;&#x153;during that period, I was used as a catcher and in the outfield and being so young and small, it had probably been the best development time for me.â&#x20AC;? But in 2002 the ruthless world of professional sport saw him traded to a much younger club, Toronto Blue Jays, which had been formed in 1977. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately I had injury problems pretty much from day dot at Toronto,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was being expected to pitch at speeds up to 98mph but was carrying an injury and because it went undetected for so long, it effectively ended my career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I lost my control and coming up against sides like the Yankees or Red Sox every five days, that was tough.â&#x20AC;? Luke spoke of the training, the bus trips and the cauldron of the contest in front of huge crowds. As it turned out, he played his last Major League game in August 2002, although he had some five years in the scene overall, unfortunately much of it in rehabilitation. He did appear on the Dodgersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; books again in November 2002 and in the following month he was snapped up by an enthusiastic Cincinnati Reds at number one pick, in the hope he would resume playing at top level. However, only two weeks or so away from resuming, the shoulder went again. Finally, two operations with a shoulder full of pins, two full years of rehabilitation and the threat of

permanent problems with his arm, took their toll for the still young star and as his mother Robin puts it â&#x20AC;&#x153;he would not have wanted to try to continue if he could not pitch at full speedâ&#x20AC;?. He decided not to return to USA.

The scouts were also aware of Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential as a catcher and with the bat.

During his career in America he had made regular return visits home in the off-season and at one stage played for the SA Giants but when he retired from the overseas scene, that pretty much ended his serious playing days. However, the vast experience Luke had gained ensured he was quickly snapped up as a coach, moving to Brisbane. He spent some four years as head baseball coach at the Queensland Academy of Sport and has been involved with one of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most successful periods of all time with its under 18 teams as well as doing some work

with the Claxton Shield side. Since his retirement, Luke has been the Cincinnati Redsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; national scout in Australia and, in fact, from next Monday, he will be in Arizona working as a pitching instructor to the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 40 top prospects in an instructional league. This is at Cincinnatiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new $150m spring training complex. Still harbouring a desire to perhaps coach in the Major League at some stage in the future, Luke says it is also important that he maintains close contact with the Reds. He is being accompanied on the trip by his younger brother Ace who is pursuing a career in Major League as a physiotherapist. I asked Kym Bament how good Luke Prokopec, born in Blackwood February 23, 1978, was? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He could have pitched for Australia in the 2000 Olympics,â&#x20AC;? he replied. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was rumoured that the Yanks didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want him there however, and they gave him a choice of the Games or a Major League contract. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Considering his future and, of course, not knowing injury was around the corner, he chose the latter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that the various clubs were prepared to persevere with him for such a long period, despite his run with injury, shows just what they thought he was capable of,â&#x20AC;? he added. Now sitting in Queensland, still aged only 33, with his wife Andrea and three children Aiden, 8, who has apparently inherited his dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rocket arm and also shows AFL potential, Stephanie, 6, and Ryan, 2 and a half, Luke must surely occasionally pinch himself when he thinks of the journey he has been on since those junior days when he played baseball here in our midst. He is now employed as the fleet co-ordinator for a towing company, a position previously filled by his younger brother Lars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After five years of coaching and with the children getting older, it was appropriate that I look for a job with more regular hours so that I could have more family time,â&#x20AC;? he said. And talking of that journey, perhaps Luke will complete a round trip and will be back in our midst some time soon?

Thursday September 15, 2011 – Riverland Weekly • 39 No doubt money was a factor but I saw an opportunity to be part of a brand new football club ~ Tom Scully

BDT wins back-to-back flags THE summary of last Saturday’s Mallee football grand final by association president Leighton Huxtable was brief and to the point. “It really was a terrific game of football,” he said. Minor premiers Border Downs Tintinara did make it back-to-back flags but they did not have it all their way against worthy challengers Murrayville, the host club for the day. Murrayville led by nine points at the first break but thereafter it was BDT by 12 at halftime, only five at the turn for home and finally, 14-11 (95) to 12-6 (78) at the final siren. In earlier games, BDT kicked off a double for the day with a win in the junior colts, 9-4 (58) to 1-5 (11) over Peake. Best for BDT were Alex Stidiford, Mitchell Cocciolone (five goals) and Mitchell Cornish and for Peake, Bradley Kielow, Will Barrett and Max Gogel. Lameroo (Jayden Barrett, nine goals, Joshua Barrett and Danny Steer) had a big win against Peake (Daniel Perks, Nicholas Gregurke and Joel Loechel), 21-7 (143) to 2-6 (18), in senior colts. In the Reserves, Peake capped of a fine club performance overall in 2011 by winning 11-15 (81) to 7-4 (46) against BDT. Best for the Lions were Sam Patterson, Aaron Richards (four goals) and Shaun O’Brien and for BDT, Rick Candy, Chase Ferguson and Sam Webb.


The number of grades in the Riverland Softball Association during the 1984/85 season.

Golf participation on par THERE have been reports that, like many sports, golf is down on player numbers but looking at the sport locally, it seems we are starting to see the benefits of all of the junior programs and initiatives introduced throughout the association in the last couple of years. Last Friday a RGA junior team had their first victory ever in their annual match against Henley High School. The best result previously was a tie in 2007. The 2011 event was a thriller with year six student Jake Millar playing the golf of his life to clinch the win for Riverland 6-4 when he defeated Harry Hu on the 20th hole. The other RGA winners were Brayden Jenke, Ben Butson, John Fischer, Lewis Cregan, James Searles and other team members Keenan Wilksch, Jordan Wright, Kieran Reynolds and Jaden Walding. 2011 term four junior programs have been announced for both the Riverland and individual clubs. During October, Riverland

will have a free school holiday clinic from 8.30am to 10am, at Renmark, on Friday 7 followed by a match against Pinnaroo juniors starting at noon. Then on Sunday, October 23 at the Loxton Golf Club, 18 holes can be played from 11.30am and nine from 1.30pm. Some junior program contacts are Jamie Coombe (Renmark) 0412 185 827, Brian Finn (Barmera) 8588 2980, Wes Bald (Waikerie) 8541 9336, Mark Wilksch (Berri) 8582 3666 or ‘Bonnie’ Tyler (Loxton) 8584 6305. Meanwhile, having just completed their match against Henley High, our juniors turned their attention to their local 2011 27 hole championships held in conjunction with the senior matchplay titles at Berri over the weekend. Keenan Wilksch won the championship, the handicap event went to Ben Butson and under 15 title to James Searles. As far as the matchplay title is concerned, Renmark captain Corey Foreman capped off his season perfectly when he defeated previous winner Loxton’s Ramon

Looking back at...

Riverland softball’s evolution

■ FUTURE: Over recent years, the number of teams in the Riverland Softball Association has dwindled. Photo: FILE

WHIL WHILE ILE I was ha havingg an d d overdue reduction off the papers, books and records I have stockpiled over a lifetime of involvement in sport, I stumbled across some reasonably comprehensive records of the 1984/85 Riverland softball season. It is certainly worth a look back. Incredibly, there were five grades at that time, A, B, C, D and primary with 38 teams involved, Barmera, Berri, Loxton, Loxton North, Renmark and Winkie at top level, eight in B grade, six in C, eight in D and 10 in primary. Those crucial grassroots primary school teams are worth reflecting upon. Berri and Waikerie each had two sides. Barmera, Cobdogla, Loxton, Monash, Lyrup and Renmark were the others. All of the competitions were keenly contested


and at that time and m ssof ftb tbal al softball finitely l one off our was d defi major summer sports and was treated accordingly being strongly promoted right across our media outlets. In the A grade competition, Winkie with 26 points finished minor premiers, Loxton North second, 22, followed by Barmera, 18, and Loxton,15. But it was Loxton who came home with a wet sail, winning their way to the grand final and defeating Winkie comprehensively, 21-7, to grab the premiership. Mind you, they had just scraped home, 10-8, in the preliminary final against Loxton North. Some of softball’s best ever local players were surely involved in that period. Loxton’s premiership team boasted names like Ev Wishart, Cathy Hayes, Dianne Bartsch and Cally Walters while Winkie had

Pe egg ggyy Gile es, JJan nB Buc ucks kski k n, Peggy Giles, Buckskin, l d Sue Vall McCauley and Willmott. In B grade, Cobdogla, who had shared top sport with Winkie entering the finals, defeated Berri, third, 31-12 in the title decider. Gerard’s Outsiders, second, defeated Winkie, fourth, 34-21, after minor premiers Monash had been eliminated in C grade and in the D’s, the two top sides played off, Renmark defeating Loxton North, 17-15. I understand in talking to RSA president Marianne Smith recently that a shortage of teams looks like continuing to be a problem for 2011/12 but of course that situation seems to be the same in many of our summer sports. I know 1984/85 is a long time ago but can I point out again that in that year “softball had 10 primary school teams taking the field”.

■ GOLF CHAMPS: Participating in the recent Berri Golf Club championships were (from left) captain Stephen Wade, club champion Tim Branford and runner-up Paul Mudge. Photo: SUPPLIED Thorne 3/2 in the final. Apart from leading Renmark to a 2011 pennant win, Corey finished runner-up in both the Berri Open and Renmark Club championships so this first win in a major tournament is well deserved. Looking back over the way the event unfolded, Doug Johns (Waikerie) defeated Renmark’s Aaron Parkyn 4/3, Foreman finished 1 up against Brian Martin (Berri), Waikerie’s Wes

Bald defeated Renmark’s Greg Shields at the 19th and Thorne eliminated Craig Davis (Waikerie) 4/3 in the first round. Then in the semi-finals, Foreman won against Johns, 1 up, and Thorne did exactly the same against Bald. Foreman’s name now joins some of the great names of Riverland golf on a cup that was introduced for the Upper Murray championship way back in 1925.

Top Four Cup up for grabs THIS season’s Riverland Soccer League championship winner Barmera Dev Estate, in senior men, and Renmark, in open girls, both survived the semi-finals of the endof-season Top Four Cup at Renmark on Sunday. On the strength of the two men’s semi’s however, Dev Estate still has some work to do before it can celebrate any title double for the season. Although it defeated Barmera Gold 5-0, Dev Estate was nowhere near its top with its trademark precise ball movement and composure missing for much of the event. It did, however, improve in the second half to increase its 1-0 halftime advantage thanks to the efforts of Anthony Ielasi, Luke Ireland, Ergi Siy, Jim Fournaros and Josh Tsorotiotis. On the other hand, the winner of the other semifinal, Renmark Olympic, produced a stunning second half to defeat Berri River Rangers, 5-1, in a

quality contest. Rangers boasted some stars like Dave Gregoric and Steve Atkinson but the sheer

weight of performances from players like Tarquin Frahn, Daniel Clark, Peter Dietsch, Ibby Altundag, outstanding goal keeper Nick Rassias, Hari Sahota, Kyle Collinson and Yianni Sialis, tilted the scales in Olympic’s favour. Sunday’s finals are at Loxton and Renmark arguably go into its clash against Dev Estate, at 2.45pm, as favourite. In the open girls at 1.15pm, Renmark meets Berri. The semi-finals saw Renmark defeat Loxton, 4-0, with Juliet Mallinson (3 goals), Juliana Glykos and Angela Pavlomanolakos showing the way and Berri (Bridget Caddy, Renee Hronopoulos) account for Barmera 2-1. Sunday’s program starts with Barmera playing Berri in under 13, division one at 9am, followed by Berri against Barmera in division two at 10.15am and at 11.30am, Berri up against Renmark in under 16.

Who will be crowned Superdogs club champion? LOCAL masters Australian football team Riverland Superdogs will hold their annual Dog Tag presentation dinner at the Lyrup Community Club on Friday night, with a 6.30pm for a 7pm start. All past and present players, families, friends and supporters are welcome. And there were certainly a number of players used in 2011, a total of 67, in fact. Obviously no salary cap problems here? Of those veterans though, only some eight played eight or nine of the twelve matches for the season so the Dog Tag club champion award will obviously hail from a limited field. My spies tell me that

the winner should therefore come from ‘Haystack’, ‘Baker’ or ‘Rowdy’, that is Rick Frahn, Ken Karpany or Shane Healy. There will also be considerable interest in the trophy for the best first year player. After all, the winner could well have played 300 games before being eligible for the Masters competition. The Superdogs lost their final game for the season against Pooraka at Pooraka, last Sunday, by 14 points, despite a gutsy effort from a squad that was down on numbers. Always trying to find a better way of doing things, the preparation methods for the contest employed on the trip down will

nevertheless have to be reviewed. So will the methods used in a match losing third term when the ‘Dogs threw away an eight point lead at halftime by not even bothering the scorers. Inaccuracy in the second quarter proved to be costly in the end but on the day there were a number of great individual efforts, particularly from the three favourites for the Dog Tag honour as they looked for perhaps some crucial last gasp votes. Shane Hannagan (two goals), Peter Aston and Mark Newman also gave their all. Any enquiries about presentation night should go to club president Lance Gum on 0407 127 272.

Riverland hockey grand finals

Baseball star making home run to Riverland By GRAHAM CHARLTON OVER the years a number of Riverland people have gone far towards the pinnacle in their chosen sport. But you could argue that the biggest ever elevation towards the top belongs to a former Renmark junior baseballer who graduated to the Major League in the USA, surely one of the toughest professional competitions to enter in the world. Luke Prokopec, who these days lives in Brisbane with his young family, may indeed be back in the Riverland some time soon. “We have purchased a block in Renmark and plan to move back, although the time frame is unknown,” he said. “The Riverland is the ideal place for bringing up a family and I look forward to getting involved in the local and sporting communities again.”
