PROPOSED plans to transport radioactive waste through the Riverland have been labelled “illogical�, as the waste would pose a serious threat to one of Australia’s major food bowls. A Federal Government report revealed radioactive waste may be transported to the Northern Territory, via the Riverland, because regions in the Blue Mountains have


BRAD PERRY been declared nuclear-free zones. South Australian Murray Irrigators chairperson Caren Martin said despite the waste being classed as low-level, any leak or spill could

devastate the Riverland. “It is definitely a risk for food growers but a bigger risk for the whole of South Australia,� she said. “If there was a leak into the river, that would impact not only on river communities, that would impact on Adelaide as a whole. “If there is lots of it and it does find its way into the river and if it’s in liquid form, you could be evacuat-

Territory is before the Senate and is predicted to be passed this year. If the facility is approved, there is the possibility waste will be transported by trucks to the site along the Sturt Highway in the Riverland, in close proximity to river crossings at Paringa, Kingston-on-Murray and Blanchetown.

A LOCAL history officer believes there is demand in Berri to open its very own museum. With the town celebrating 100 years, Jacque Zagotsis said there is enough historic memorabilia collected by residents to open a museum. “We no longer have a museum in the Berri area with Wilabalangaloo closing,” she said. “People are asking are we going to have something and ideally, with the Berri local history collection here in the library it would be

wonderful to have a museum but at this stage we haven’t got the place to do that. “It would be beneficial in the future.” An example of the types of historic items that could potentially be held in a future museum will be on display at the Berri centenary exhibition beginning on Sunday. “At this stage the community has been really good coming on board and telling what items they’ve got to put on display,” Mrs Zagotsis said. ■ Back to Berri feature on pages 12 & 13.

THERE IS no doubt the Federal Government is aware of the potential consequences of a nuclear spill in the Riverland, so why even consider such a strong horticultural area as a radioactive waste transport route? The government is promising public consultation but why have public consultation when you already know the majority of the towns’ communities oppose the move? After several regions of the Blue Mountains in New South Wales have been declared nuclear free zones, it appears transporting waste through the Riverland, to the proposed new nuclear dump in the Northern Territory, was the next best option. As far as I understand, the transport route includes crossing the Paringa Bridge. And as much as the State Government can boast an outstanding safety record when it comes to nuclear waste transportation, it only takes one small thing to go wrong and we would have a huge problem on our hands. The River Murray is the Riverland’s life blood and contamination could cause a catastrophe of unknown proportions. Hopefully the Federal Government comes to its senses and the Riverland is given a reprieve on this nuclear transport route. If not, every time we see a truck carrying radioactive waste through the Riverland, I will close my eyes, cross my fingers and for the sake of the region’s future, hope it has a safe journey.

Alarming immunisation drop By BRAD PERRY THE amount of Riverland newborns being immunised has dropped alarmingly by more than 100 babies this year, leaving local doctors concerned about the spread of preventable disease. Riverland Divison of General Practice medical director Dr Grant Baker said immunisations help prevent diseases, which in a worst case scenario, can cause death to infants. “To me, there is a reasonable concern because it was only 12 to 18 months ago that we had that whooping cough...outbreak which caused a number of adults and some children to become really

unwell for many, many months,” he said. “It was only two years ago when a baby in Victoria died of whooping cough, a newborn, and in the last six months, there’s been a measles outbreak in Adelaide. “These entirely preventable infections are still in the community and I think it would be the worst thing possible to have someone suffer an illness which is preventable through immunisation.” In the past, doctor shortages have made it difficult for parents to book an appointment for their newborn’s immunisation but Dr Baker said there are currently

10 more general practioners in the region than this time last year. “We’ve probably now got more

These entirely preventable infections are still in the community.

GPs in the region than we’ve ever had,” he said. “So access to general practice

and immunisation shouldn’t be an issue. “We have more practice nurses undertaking immunisations, so I’m really not sure why (immunisation numbers have dropped).” Dr Baker said immunisations are due when a baby is two months old, while children can be immunised at six weeks old to be protected against disease a bit earlier. Diseases which newborns are susceptible to include diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, polio, hepatitis B, pneumococcal, haemophilus and rotavirus. Parents can become complacent when it comes to immunisation, according to Dr Baker.

■ SAD: The Wallace family (from left) James, Kyre, Tania, Jim and Riley are holding a fundraising event to help bring home their nephew Malcolm Campbell who tragically died in the Pike River Mine disaster. Photo: JANE WILSON

Time to bring nephew home By CALLUM TRIFONOFF FOR the Wallace family, the thought of their nephew Malcolm Campbell’s body being stuck in New Zealand’s notorious Pike River Mine is hard to bear. Last year, the Barmera residents were given the tragic news that Malcolm, who lived with the family for several months, had not survived a blast inside the mine. Almost a year since the disaster where rescuers were unable to retrieve the bodies of 28 miners, Jim Wallace believes it is time to bring Malcolm home. Mr Wallace is organising a Car & Bike Poker Run to raise

funds to help put Malcolm to rest. “The New Zealand government have indicated people can try and raise funds to get them out,” he said. “All the bodies are still in there. “We just want to be able to get my nephew home and give him a proper burial.” The event called Mal’s Ride will be held on January 7 and Mr Wallace is hoping locals will get behind the good cause. “We’ll have five venues that we’re stopping at and at every venue, you’ll be given a card,” Mr Wallace said. “Then after you’ve arrived at the final venue, it’ll be who’s

got the best poker hand will win the prizes.” Mr Wallace said as well as raising money for the recovery operation, he is also trying to increase awareness. “If you look at Australia, how many coal mines are in Australia, how many underground mines are in Australia?” he said. “Australia’s one of the big mining countries. “Maybe if New Zealand had the same facilities Australia has, we wouldn’t be in this predicament.” For more information about Mal’s Ride, contact Jim on 0417 886 994 or Tania on 8588 1114.




AFTER years of amalgamation talks, the Berri Barmera Council has made another step towards forming one regional council, passing a motion at Tuesday night’s meeting. The Berri Barmera Council has supported the amalgamation and will approach Renmark Paringa and Loxton Waikerie councils to gauge their thoughts on the matter. Berri Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton said if there was “political will”, one Riverland council could happen in the not so distant future. “We’re just looking to see if the other councils are interested because you can waste a lot of time and energy if they are not,” he said. “There’s some money that can be saved. “It would certainly be cheaper to run one council than three and there would be one voice for the region and that would give it a bit more strength. “Underlining it all is that it would be financially better off for the residents of the region.” Mr Beaton said the only way an amalgamation will take place is if both other councils agree. “They are allowed to respond whichever way they like, they can agree or disagree,” he said. “If other councils aren’t in favour of it, it’s not going to happen. “If it is not one of the things they want to do then let’s look at ways of resource sharing and shared services.”

“When there is a lack of disease in the community, it is very common for people to get complacent and the immunisation rates for these diseases drop, which is very worrying,” he said. Dr Baker said completing the childhood immunisation program will ensure all children in the Riverland are protected from preventable diseases. “If they have got any concerns about immunisation or the safety of immunisation, then they should discuss that with their doctor or speak to the practice nurse and get those concerns clarified and hopefully some of the myths dispelled,” he said.

PS Canally arrives at new home By ZOE WATSON THE PS Canally will arrive in its new home on Saturday and the Morgan community is looking forward to welcoming its newest tourist attraction. Morgan Community Development and Tourist Association media liaison Julie Dawson Daniels said it was a “dream” for Morgan to have its own boat. “Morgan really wanted something down here and she was kindly offered to the Morgan Museum who have taken her with open arms,” she said. “Morgan has never had a boat of its own, we’ve been on the lookout for one.” Ms Dawson Daniels said the paddle boat, once restored, will be great for Morgan tourism. “Morgan has a good tourism ethic... this is something else to come and see, something a bit different,” she said. The boat was originally refloated by the Riverboat Association in 1998, after sinking in 1957, before being donated to the Friends of the Canally in Euston, NSW. Arriving at Morgan Wharf at 11am, the vessel will be officially welcomed on behalf of the community, by Mid Murray Council Mayor Dave Burgess, with events to celebrate the arrival to follow.

Riverland nuclear route off limits ■ From Page 1 Berri Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton said he does understand why the nuclear waste needs to take a longer route. “If we’re a food bowl area, why would you do something that jeopardises it and if it’s supposed to be low risk with the waste not very toxic, then why don’t they take it to the Blue Mountains, why don’t they take it the most direct routes?” he said. “I just think it seems illogical that it should come this way because if there is nothing wrong with it, why would you come all this way out of your road, if its got low risk and low toxicity. “I don’t think residents would be happy knowing it was going through their area when it doesn’t need to.” Mr Beaton said crossing such Riverland areas as the Paringa Bridge with radioactive waste could also prove hazardous.

“If it has to go over the Paringa Bridge for example, it’s not the widest bridge in the world,” he said. “You would think if it gets into the water supply it is not a good result for the Riverland, it is not a good result for any of the eco systems.”

I just think it seems illogical that it (nuclear waste) should come this way.

South Australia’s water supply would be put at risk if nuclear waste is transported through the Riverland, according to Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone. “The lame duck Premier Mike Rann was utterly against the establishment of a nucle-

Park handover concern By BRAD PERRY PLANS to hand over part of Berri’s Apex Park to the State Government to build a oral health care centre and extend hospital car parking will push forward despite concern from a community member. In a letter to the Berri Barmera Council, resident Michael Jennings wrote he would be “deeply disappointed” if the park was used for building purposes. The park is named after Mr Jennings’ father Colin’s long standing contribution to the community and he said there is not another park in Berri with similar facilities to offer locals and visitors. “To start with, it will only be a bit here and another bit there but like a cancer it will eventually take over the whole area,” he wrote. Berri Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton said they are only awaiting State Government approval to transfer the portion of land for the health

However, Mr Beaton said the history of Colin Jennings Apex Park was acknowledged and the remainder of the land will be returned to the community to be dedicated to recreational purposes. “It can have more of a medical use but still retain the large park in that area because it was a big park and we weren’t necessarily using the southern end of it any-

way because of the helicopter landing,” he said. “The remainder of the land will go back into community land, so we won’t leave the balance as operational land which allows you to do other things with it. “Concerns about having to do something else to it in the future should be allayed because we would have to go through the public consultation process again.”

■ SUPPORT: The Renmark and Districts Community Bank Steering Committee is currently in talks about where to establish a Bendigo Community Bank agency in the Riverland.

Bank committee hopes to establish agency by Christmas By BRAD PERRY THE Renmark and Districts Community Bank Steering Committee is hoping to establish a Bendigo Community Bank agency in the Riverland before Christmas. With around 120 pledges totalling $580,000, Steering Committee chair Dave Patty said discussions are currently being held with interested parties to etablish an angency in an existing business. “It’s been approved that we can do an agency here now, so we’re in the process of sorting that out,” he said. “There are meetings taking place regarding that, as to where that is going to happen and how that’s going to happen. “The agency can initially go into an existing business and it can be run through that but come the actual full branch, that will be in a stand alone building somewhere just for the Bendigo Community Bank.” The committee is targeting around $750,000 to help establish a full Bendigo Community Bank branch in the region. “I think it’s (the amount of pledges) fantastic but we’ve got 120 pledges so far and we’d like to get another 80 to get the final amount to make it a truly representative community sort of thing,” Mr Patty said. A branch could be operational in the Riverland next year if all goes to plan, according to Mr Patty. “We really need to try and push people who haven’t done anything so far that think it is a good idea,” he said. “There’s lots of people out there who think it’s a great idea but like anything in the Riverland, they sit on the fence a little bit and wait for somebody else to do it. “It is time now they acted and got on with it.”

Former packing shed sells It has been confirmed the premises of former Loxton packing company BP Fruits has been sold. While finer details on the sale are not expected for at least two weeks, the sale is being tagged as a positive for the region.

“As part of that, we use native, indigenous herbs in a lot of our dukkahs. “We use lemon myrtle, wattle seed, native thyme…it was a natural progression for people to be able to come in to the shop and smell the individual herbs.

“We thought it would add another element if people could actually see them growing.” Mrs Gorman believes the garden will be an attraction for tourists and locals. “I think it’ll be something that’ll interest people,” she said. “It’ll aesthetically improve not only our business but the entrance to the town. “It’ll be an open garden for people to come in to. “People can stop on their way through or locals can come out and have a look and increase their awareness of what they might even have in their own garden.” While Mrs Gorman hopes the garden will be finished by November, attendees at Illalangi’s Riverland Wine and Food Wine Down event, in October, will be able to envision the plan through groundwork and terracing that will already be finished.

Laura aims high

Karoonda East Murray celebrates 100 years



GLOSSOP High School teacher Laura Carrington will vie for a state honour as part of the South Australian Public Teaching Awards. Miss Carrington won the Murray and Malleeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Inspirational Early Career Teacher of the Year and will now compete against 10 other teachers for the state award.

THE population of the Karoonda East Murray district will swell this weekend with thousands of past residents, family and friends set to converge on the area to celebrate its 100th anniversary. Event organisers hope the weather will be kind for the weekend-long celebrations, which will include the opening of the new Railway Station Museum and Centenary Walk. Karoonda East Murray Centenary Committee chair Margaret Size said the weekend was an opportunity to celebrate â&#x20AC;&#x153;the fact weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve survivedâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the whole area, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really a good chance just to celebrate the fact that a hundred years ago, they started opening up, bores were sunk and the railway was laid,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Mallee is tough, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who we are and where we are. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hang in there through good times and bad.â&#x20AC;?

Mrs Size said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one way of people recognising people perhaps you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have and knowing who has come.â&#x20AC;? A Centenary Ball will be held Saturday night with organisers hoping people across all generations will attend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an old time ball, not a cabaret ball with tables, but sitting around the outside of the hall, as we used to do all those years ago,â&#x20AC;? Mrs Size said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been some old style dancing lessons held down here.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The younger generation has gotten into it.â&#x20AC;? A celebratory church service will be held at the original service site, under a tree, in Wynarka, on Sunday morning.

Charlie’s inventive flair By BRAD PERRY WITH a backdrop of lovingly arranged tools in his Loxton shed, Charlie Harvey’s creative ideas come to life. As the sun sets on a Riverland day, it is more than likely you will find Charlie in his shed, working furiously on his latest invention. The creative 86-year-old has been inventing for almost three decades, through the good times and the bad. “It’s surprising how often you think of something really silly, that no-one else is game enough to do and doing it works out all right,” he laughed. “Some of them I use, some of them I don’t, I just go ahead and make them up. “I always have been that way, where I like making up things.” Amongst a wall full of carefully organised, hanging tools, Charlie is in his element in his shed, which is the ideal inventor’s workshop. While the hands-on creator has won awards for his gadgets, the hobby has also kept Charlie’s mind healthy. “I’ve entered into a lot of gadget days, I’ve got a few prizes and all the rest of it,” he said. “It’s like everything else, sometimes I wonder why I made them (inventions) but you’ve got to keep yourself occupied.

“As far as I’m concerned, you have to have a hobby to keep your mind in place. “If you just sit down and do nothing, that’s the end of it but while you’re doing something, no matter how silly it is, you keep your mind and energy going.” Amongst the inventions Charlie holds dear are his miniature rotary hoe, gadgets to help cut grass and weeds and an invention for lifting iron droppers from the ground. During his life, Charlie has seen it all from floods to depressions but his love for the region has not wavered. “I’ve certainly been through the hard times,” he said. Charlie was born in Pyap before the 1956 flood saw him move to Lock Four for 26 years, before moving to Loxton where he has remained for the last quarter of a century. Even the Great Depression in the 1930s failed to deter a young Charlie from remaining positive. “Living on the riverbank all my life, (I’ve had) plenty of water, plenty of fish, plenty of ducks, plenty of rabbits but it’s a different story today though,” he said. As long as he remains fit and healthy, the much loved Loxton resident plans to continue creating his inventions, working with the elderly and keeping fit through lawn bowls three days a week.

By BRAD PERRY STATISTICALLY, men have a poor record when it comes to having regular health checks and I am no exception. With that in mind, I decided to test my health at the Riverland Field Days Pit Stop, comprised of eight health check points. I began with the alcohol check and not surprisingly, had no problems passing the first stop, falling within the zero to seven point range, giving me a green light. According to Federal Government advice, any amount of alcohol consumed can be unsafe and those choosing to drink must realise there will be some risk to their health and social well-being. Growing up with a parent who smoked shaped my results at the exhaust stop, designed to assess the impact of smoking on my health. Considering smoking related diseases kill thousands of Australians each year, the statistics are enough to deter me (and the graphic advertising campaigns).

After plenty of unhealthy eating in past months, I passed the nutrition and waist measurement check (almost falling into the yellow light category). Any healthy eating I have done is generally thanks to my partner for cooking me plenty of vegetables with dinner.

It was a real reminder to me that I need to lift my game.

Apparently similar comments were also made at the stop by men before me. The mental health test was passed with flying colours but I did not have as much luck with my blood pressure. Almost falling into the red light is seen as a real concern, although some of that may have been due to extensive walking at the Field Days. I fell into a low risk category for prostate cancer and

the good news followed that I do not have diabetes. While I was assurred the tests were not necessarily clinical, the blood pressure results can be an indication of future problems and I was warned to keep a close check on the results. Feeling relatively happy with my Pit Stop performance, I finished on a sour note when I miserably failed the questionaire regarding the steps I take to prevent skin cancer. In fact, I am not alone, with Australia having one of the highest skin cancer incidence rates in the world, with Australians four times more likely to develop skin cancer than any other form of cancer. It was a real reminder to me that I need to lift my game when it comes to wearing a hat and sunscreen. In the end, I received a nice blue sticker confirming my overhaul was complete plus a heap of pamphlets and I went away thinking seriously about my health and the need to book in for regular check-ups.

Chefs in the making By BRAD PERRY THE Riverland Field Days Committee will consider hosting another cooking challenge for schools at the major regional event following the inaugural competition’s success this year. Last week Glossop High School students were presented with a certificate and prizes after edging out rival high schools to win the Field Days competition. Glossop High School student Amber Martin said the challenge opened her eyes to the possibilities of a career in the food industry. “I thought it was a great opportunity and something new for me to do,” she said. “I think it would be great if the Field Days continued with something like that because it would give other kids an opportunity to do the same thing as we did and they can find out about cooking.” The four winning students will now have the opportunity to work alongside TAFE commercial cookery students in a restaurant environment. “We will bring them into the kitchen and they will shadow Certificate III commercial cookery students and they will actually work in a kitchen, see how it all goes together, see how it happens,” TAFE SA Berri’s commercial cookery lecturer Alistair Ferguson said. “We encourage this because if there is some students here who are keen and passionate about food we want to encourage them. “If it means they can come along and join us and they already have that passion, they are usually better cooks. “I reckon it’s marvellous that the kids are encouraged

at this age.” Sprout’s Themis Chryssidis, who hosted the challenge with business partner Callum Hann, said the event was a fantastic initiative amongst school children. “I think they all found it really valuable, it was a really unique experience and it was a good promotion of cooking and health for a younger demographic,” he said. “I loved it (and) I would happily be a part of something like that in the future. “For me, it was great to see what great quality food they produced. “We underestimate what young children, right through to teenagers, can do in the kitchen.” The cooking challenge is likely to be held again at next year’s Field Days, according to committee chairman Anthony Fulwood. “I think the schools are keen to continue with it,” he said. “We’re happy to see it happen. “In our cooking area we can have more than just the challenge, we can have a celebrity chef as well.”

Memorable overseas tour EARLIER this month a group of 28 travellers from Renmark, Berri, Loxton, Barmera, Kingston-onMurray and Waikerie returned from a fabulous 28 day tour of beautiful Britain and Ireland. The tour, organised by Harvey World Travel Berri, was fully escorted by the local branch’s assistant manager, Debbie Tanner. The tour began when everyone was collected from their hometowns followed by dinner in the Barossa Valley, on the way to Adelaide and an overnight stay near the Adelaide Airport. Following a flight to London the next day, the group joined a Globus tour. There was some magnificent scenery as the tour took in many of the iconic sights in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Many of the memorable stops were off the beaten track to quaint little towns and pubs along the way. And, of course, the Edinburgh Tattoo, on its last night of the season, was a definite highlight. “Because we were in a group, I was also able to organise extras along the way for those who wanted them,” Miss Tanner said. “These included the lounges in Singapore Airport, tickets to see Billy Elliott in London and the London Eye tour. “Being from this region, I think everyone had similar interests and got along really well. “It very much felt like

“We were even dropped at our very own doorstep when we arrived home. “We had such a great time and the weather was superb.” The tour was the first of its kind departing from the region. “This was the first tour Harvey World Travel have organised that departed from the Riverland and as it was such a resounding success, we would like to do many more in the future,” Miss Tanner said. “If this kind of no stress, easy type of trip appeals to you, please fill in the coupon to the right and let us know the destinations that interest you.”

95th Pinnaroo Show from clothing to arts, crafts and nick nacks. The Bank SA marquee will be back this year, housing a range of smaller exhibitors with a huge spread of products and services on show. Kids will be occupied for hours as they follow the Mallee Brick Road, visiting various exhibitors around the show collecting giveaways and goodies along the way. An animal nursery with plenty of cute creatures will also be an attraction for the young ones, while all the thrill and your favourite rides will be back along the colourful sideshow alley. Following on from last year’s world first RM Williams boot muster, the show will host an Akubra hat muster, so bring your hats along to take part. For the good storytellers out there, the person with the best yarn about the ad-


ventures their Akubra has seen, fictitious or not, will snag a new Akubra, so get those tongues wagging. There’s even something for the family pet, with the organised chaos of Jack Russell racing, with a twist, which is sure to provide some laughs on the main oval. Radio personality Peter Goers will be officially opening the show at 1pm. He will be broadcasting “his show from our show” at 7pm so for all the local listeners, the main grandstand is the place to be. The fireworks extravaganza, kicking off with a bang at 8.30pm, will be a sky show of the highest quality and should not be missed.

Making his first appearance in Loxton, Jingo the Clown will be bringing the gags and giggles, performing on the main stage on both days. Georgette Berry, Ron and Julie Haynes (Froth and Bubble) and Leon and Julie Muskett (Side by Side) will also be crowd pleasers.

Gulliver guides the way

â&#x2013; DOG: Popular Gulliver the Giant Guide Dog will make an appearance at the Loxton Show during a visit to the Riverland this week. LOXTON show-goers will see something out of the ordinary this weekend as the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest model guide dog visits the show on Sunday. At 4.3 metres tall, Gulliver the Giant Guide Dog is touring the state to raise awareness of Guide Dogs South Australia and Northern Territoryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free services for people with a vision impairment or hearing loss. Guide Dog SA.NTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief executive officer Kate Thiele said having Gulliver in South Australia for the first time will be a fantastic way to engage the broader community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gulliver will be out and about providing information about the services that we offer and how we can help,â&#x20AC;? she said. With research showing that more than a third of people with eye disorders live in country areas, Guide Dogs SA.NT want to educate people on available services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vision and hearing loss is not restricted to the city, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vital that people know we travel to these areas where our free services are needed,â&#x20AC;? said Ms Thiele. Guide Dogs SA.NT encourage people to come and see Gulliver at the show before he continues on his South Australian travels.

The sparkle of premium diamonds has never been so alluring but while theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on every coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wishlist â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the price isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Engagement rings and wedding bands are more than jewellery, they are a symbol of matrimony, and realistically, a sizeable investment. When buying diamonds for your rings itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to know what you are getting. The price of your diamond will depend on the stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carat, colour, clarity and cut - the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Four Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Diamonds and precious stones are measured by their mass, not their size. One carat is equivalent to one fifth of a gram. One carat is divided into 100 points so 25 points is a quarter of a carat. Diamonds can cover the entire spectrum of colours from pink to blue or green but most are a barely noticeable yellow. The most valuable diamonds are colourless, which are very rare, followed closely by pink or blue stones. The clarity of a diamond is determined by the degree to which it is free from â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;inclusionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, traces of non-

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY WEDDINGS are on the increase. Think second-hand dresses, recycled paper invitations and food from local producers.

MODERN CHOICES, are being made by brides as they go for non-traditional dress choices, perhaps a short â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;little white dressâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; over a long gown, in beautiful hues instead of the usual white or ivory.

crystallised carbon that occur during the formation process. A diamondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value is determined by its ability to transmit light so the clearer the stone the better. Diamonds with the smallest amount of inclusions are the most rare and expensive. The cut of the diamond is considered the most important factor of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Four Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122; system in terms of the stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appearance and overall value, and the only part of a diamond influenced by man. The diamond cutterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expertise lies in being able to create a diamond that will reflect the most light and emit the biggest sparkle. But, perhaps the most important â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is confidence. Be confident in your style, your diamond, your price, because your ring is not simply a piece of jewellery, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forever. Sourced from â&#x2013; Wedding rings can be sourced in the Riverland from Kane Watts Jewellers, in Berri.

Berri looks back AS par part of Berri’s centenary celebrations, the town is holding a historic Back to Berri W Week commencing this Sunday. During the weeklong program, there will be se several events to celebrate the centenary including a dinner and exhibition. ■ CAPTION: Caption. Photo: JANE WILSON

■ OLD: The newly released edition of the Berri Centenary Community News.

FOLLO FOLLOWING a successful launch of the Berri C Community News earlier this year, anoth edition has been printed and is another availa available during Back to Berri Week. T The second edition of the Berri Cent Centenary Community News is a colla collation of printed newspaper articles and photographs sourced from the Ber Library and Information Centre. Berri With a focus on Monash, Winkie an Glossop, the current edition and ta takes readers back in time to fam mous events such as Berri’s Jubilee C Celebrations, Field Day, Aboriginal M Mission opening and the shifting of Berri’s Trading Post. Berri Centenary Committee chairperson Marg Colby said the Community News is a fantastic addition to the 100 year celebrations. “The idea of the centenary Community News was to highlight issues from the past that had been printed in newspapers,” she said. “We wanted to highlight

all these Back to Berri events, which we hadn’t done in the first one. “The reason for putting the second edition together was there was a lot of interest in the first edition. “People actually asked if we were going to do a second edition and we had the funding to do it from the Berri War Memorial Community Centre. “We had plenty of material which was a big help.” The extended focus on Berri’s surrounding districts, in the publication’s second edition, provides a historic insight for the reader. “We’ve got the history of the Lone Gum and the Monash settlements,” Mrs Colby said. “There is a tree out there that is rather special at Monash. “That’s how it got its name, Lone Gum. “They actually wanted to remove it in 1952. “It is still there because the public defended it.” There is also articles on Berri’s sig-

nificant milestones in the unique news publication. “There’s been big celebrations for every significant miletsone in Berri,” she said. “They had a big carnival in 1936 which is the 25th anniversary, so it coincided with the centenary and Berri was described as a pretty little river town.” “They had jubilee celebrations in 1960 and every community organisation was invited to do a floral carpet that must have looked absolutely magnificent. “The 50th celebrations were really quite huge and they also had a Back to Berri Week then and they had a Back to Berri Week in 1936 as well. “In 1986, when it was the 75th celebrations in Berri, they had another big event, it was all down on the riverfront.” The final edition of the Community News takes place around 60 years after the original Berri Community News was written. The special edition of the Berri Community News is available at selected outlets across the Riverland.

FORMER Berri residents will return early next month for the much anticipated Back to Berri Dinner. With more than 100 tickets already sold for the event to be held at the Berri Resort Hotel, organisers are hoping for a large attendance. “People are returning to their former home for the dinner,” Berri Centenary Committee chairperson Marg Colby said. “What we’d like to see is more locals here to welcome them back.” Mrs Colby said well known businessman Jim Rosenthal will be guest speaker on the night. “Jim Rosenthal, because he is from one of the oldest businesses in town and long standing families, his father (Doug) was acutally mayor of Berri for a significant amount of time, he is going to be a welcome speaker,” she said. The dinner will take place on October 8 at the Berri Resort Hotel, with tickets costing $50 available from the Berri Barmera Council. For more information, please phone 8582 1922.

Berri’s history on show AN historic weeklong exhibition will open this Sunday at the Berri Town Hall to help residents and visitors relive the town's past. With various community groups pledging pieces of memorabilia for the centenary exhibit, local history officer Jacque Zagotsis said many items rarely seen by the public will be on display. “We've had pledges of items from various community groups and individuals to add to the display to help

make it large and interesting for the community,” she said. “It's going to showcase Berri and the surround’s history for the last 100 years. “It is an opportunity for people to relive our history in our centenary year and also to bring their children to have a bit of a look at the way things were.” Mrs Zagotsis said the Back to Berri Dinner will also attract people to the exhibition.

“There is quite a lot of people coming to the area for the Back to Berri Dinner and that will be an opportunity for people from outside the area to have a look at our exhibition as well,” she said. Items on display include dolls' prams, children's toys, agricultural equipment, church history, digital displays, photographs and much more. For more information about the exhibition, contact Jacque or Berri Library manager Peter Ison on 8595 2666.

Share your stories BERRI community members, young and old, will be encouraged to share their stories at the Berri Centenary Exhibition in a multimedia experiment organisers hope will provide a snapshot of today’s community. The multimedia installation at the Town Hall exhibition, developed by a group of young locals, will include a video camera set up for people to film their stories, experiences and thoughts regarding Berri’s history and future. Berri Barmera Council youth development officer Michelle Baden said it was a chance for the community to record their own piece of history. “It’s about sharing people’s stories and experiences and celebrating the fact that we are 100 years and a lot of people have contributed to that,” she said. “It will provide a snapshot of what people think, today. “It’s not necessarily just for cultural, heritage people, it’s for everybody. “We really want to get a representation of different cultures that have

shaped the community.” Ms Baden said the recordings would become history in their own right. “It’s going to be put into the local history room in the Berri Information Centre, so it’ll be a part of gathering the next 100 years of information,” she said. “It’s important for people to recognise that now (today) is also very important. “It will be history in a hundred years, so it’s important to document it as well.” The multimedia installation project was initiated by the Berri Barmera Council as part of engaging young people in Berri’s centenary celebrations. It was developed through workshops for interested youth, run by local artists Alysha Herrmann and Nick Tubb. The Berri Centenary Exhibition will run from October 2 to 9 in the Berri Town Hall, from 10am to 5pm daily.

LOSSOP High School celebrates its 70th anniversary this year, with original students coming together for a reunion in late October to share stories of their early school days. Past students, part of the original 1941 intake, will meet for a school tour and celebratory dinner on October 20 to commemorate their time at the school. Principal Bevin Brooks said many interesting stories have surfaced through research into the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alan Delaine, one of our original students here in 1941, tells the story of an RAAF fighter plane dive bombing the school yard at that time,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr Delaine talks about the fact that the school had dug slip trenches all over the school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If there was an air raid, the kids were to jump into these trenches for safety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not too many Australian kids wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone through that sort of experience.â&#x20AC;? Mr Brooks said Bill Roberston, another original student, also has a unique story to tell and recently donated a brass ashtray to the school, an item which was on the HMAS Sydney

when it sunk in 1914. The man who captained â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was Admiral Glossop whom the town was named after. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was special for him to hand that (the ashtray) over to the school, â&#x20AC;&#x153; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It acknowledges the history and the link.â&#x20AC;? Over 70 years, the school has had a rich history and the early traditions continue today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Continental, our major fundraiser, has (gone from strength to strength) from the very early days,â&#x20AC;&#x153; Mr Brooks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That started in the first or second year of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existence.â&#x20AC;? He said the annual event is

a community icon and raises up to $50,000 each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is something that a lot of schools are quite jealous of and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tradition that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll keep going,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Mt Gambier and Glossop High Schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; exchange program is another long running tradition that began in 1941, during the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is officially the longest running school exchange in Australia,â&#x20AC;? Mr Brooks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are people in their 70s and 80s who still remember that experience very fondly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That tradition is unique to this school, as is the Continental.â&#x20AC;?

The October 20 reunion is a rare chance for students to reunite according to Mr Brooks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This gives us a chance to report the anecdotes of these studentsâ&#x20AC;Śget them to tell their stories, so these fascinating stories from the 1940s arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lost.â&#x20AC;?

Mallee childcare success A MALLEE student is among a group of year 12 students to be the first to gain qualifications in the childcare industry as a part of a new look South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE). Karoonda Area School student Davina Turner is one of the students who will count their Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications towards their SACE in year 12. Davina, 17, aims to complete her SACE at the end of the year, having completed a Certificate III in Children’s Services. The qualifications are in high demand and from 2014, every childcare worker will be required to have at least a Certificate III qualification. Davina said the certificate gives students more reason to remain in the education system. “To be able to study the Certificate III and have that count towards your SACE gives you more career options and good reasons to stay on at school,” Davina said. “It means you can work towards your career while at school because what you are learning is relevant, especially with the qualifications that childcare workers will need in the future. Anne Bremner, manager of Mallee Mobile Child Care Service, where Davina has been undertaking work placement, welcomed the increased flexibility in the new SACE. “There’s been a chronic shortage of children’s service workers for years and the national reform agenda in childcare means that staff will need qualifications in this area,” she said. “The opportunity to learn like this while still at school means more students will probably stay on and complete school, while also having the advantage of on-thejob training. “This provides them with a well rounded education that will put them on the top of employer’s job list.”

Ballet school’s big year

Children’s author visit ROSIE Clark School of Ballet and Tap has had a busy year performing its three annual dance performances recently. Hundreds of dancers (above)

dressed in colourful costumes put hours of hard work into their performances to produce a fantastic display for large audiences which attended the Riverland shows.

BERRI Primary School received a visit from a well known children’s author recently. Janeen Brian, who published such titles as Silly Galah and Columbia Sneezes, spoke to students in the year

three to seven classes about writing, brainstorming ideas and how she became an author. She is pictured reading one of her books to the school’s year three and four class.

Village comes alive

■ STAR STRUCK: Loxton’s Brianka Harris, 10, travelled to Mildura recently to see Australia’s Got Talent winner Jack Vidgen perform.

THE Loxton Historical Village will come ‘alive’ this Saturday from 11am with many working exhibits on show for the whole family. Feel the heat from the anvil as the blacksmith shapes the iron, discover how rope is made, smell the ink from the printing press and enjoy the mouth-watering taste of freshly made bread and yeast goods straight from the village oven. There’s plenty to see and do for all ages including sheep shearing demonstrations, quad and carousel rides, craft stalls, the Lanz Bulldog tractor will be started and there will be a vintage vehicle parade.

Slice delight THE Riverland Weekly’s annual Vanilla Slice Day was an outstanding success recently with 360 servings of the delicious sweet sold at participating stores across Renmark and Loxton. Customers responded by turning out to selected bakeries in droves and enjoying the slice on offer. The themed day will be on again next year.

Riverland Hit â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Miss Rally

Waikerie rally a big hit By CALLUM TRIFONOFF WAIKERIE hosted the Riverland Hit 'n' Miss Rally on the weekend and with 3500 people going through the gates, the rally proved a certain hit and one that should not have been missed. Organiser Erica Lange said the event was popular amongst all ages with many people attending to see the wide range of machinery and vintage displays. Mrs Lange said the biennial event was a major success and a boost to the local economy. With a large crowd packing every corner of Benson Park, Mrs Lange could not have been


happier with the turnout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The crowd was magnificent, the weather was magnificent, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been very happy with it,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It's been very successful.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got fairly good coverage from all areas and we had quite a number of new people from interstate.â&#x20AC;? Mrs Lange said the event received a positive response from the public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had many comments on our setting, on how well it was run,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was all positive.â&#x20AC;?

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN ELECTORAL DISTRICTS BOUNDARIES COMMISSION Notice Issued Pursuant to section 85(1) of the Constitution Act 1934 Pursuant to section 82(1) of the Constitution Act 1934 (“the Constitution”) the South Australian Electoral Districts Boundaries Commission is about to commence proceedings for the purpose of an electoral redistribution of South Australia into House of Assembly (State) electoral districts. A redistribution of the Federal electoral boundaries is also taking place this year. The Federal redistribution is a separate exercise from the State redistribution, governed by different legislation and timeframes, and they are not related. What is the basis of the redistribution? Whenever an electoral redistribution is made, the number of electors in each electoral district must not vary from the electoral quota by more than 10 per cent. The electoral quota is obtained by dividing the total number of electors for the House of Assembly as at a specified date, being a date not earlier than six months before the date of the Commission’s order, by the number of electoral districts. What is the task of the Commission?

Nominations are open now – you can download a nomination form from our website

In making an electoral redistribution, the Commission is required to: • ensure, as far as practicable, that the electoral redistribution is fair to prospective candidates and groups of candidates so that, if candidates of a particular group attract more than 50 per cent of the popular vote (determined by aggregating votes cast throughout the State and allocating preferences to the necessary extent), they will be elected in sufficient numbers to enable a government to be formed; • have regard, as far as practicable, to: a) the desirability of making the electoral redistribution so as to reflect communities of interest of an economic, social, regional or other kind; b) the population of each proposed electoral district; c) the topography of areas within which new electoral boundaries will be drawn; d) the feasibility of communication between electors affected by the redistribution and their parliamentary representative in the House of Assembly; e) the nature of substantial demographic changes that the Commission considers likely to take place in proposed electoral districts between the conclusion of its present proceedings and the date of expiry of the present term of the House of Assembly. The Commission is also authorised to have regard to any other matter it thinks relevant. Can you make a submission?

If you have any questions or require assistance, please email or call Rose on 8569 0100.

The Commission invites representations from any person in relation to the proposed electoral redistribution.

This is your chance to recognise the most deserving members of our community. Your nomination could lead to someone special being recognised with an award at the Council’s Australia Day celebrations. Nominations close 18 November 2011 Please return the completed form to Mid Murray Council P O Box 28 Mannum SA 5238 or email

Any persons wanting to make representations to the Commission regarding the proposed electoral redistribution may do so in writing, either personally or by post, to the Secretary of the Commission, by 5.00pm on Tuesday 31 January 2012. When and where will the hearings take place? The Commission will conduct a preliminary hearing as to demographic data which will commence at 10.00am on Monday, 14 November 2011 in the Commonwealth Law Courts Building, 3 Angas Street, Adelaide.

Early intervention key to suicide prevention A SUICIDE workshop highlighting the importance of early intervention will be held in the Riverland today. LifeForce Project senior training coordinator Rodney Cole said looking for the early signals that someone could be contemplating taking their life is important. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Early intervention is about knowing someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing it tough, maybe a relationship breakup, maybe some financial stressâ&#x20AC;Śasking to see how theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know generally it is someone dealing with a loss, or a grief or a crisis situation that will often lead towards suicide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We spend a lot of time looking at the physical, behavioural, emotional responses to loss, grief and crisis.

Mr Cole said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It could be mums, dads, aunties, uncles, high school teachers, aged care providers, church people.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love some sporting coaches who particularly have some kind of guidance with young people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You do not need to be a health professional to attend this workshop.â&#x20AC;? The workshop will be held at the Berri Resort Hotel today from 8.45am.

Entertainment WHATâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S




Lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complicated By ZOE WATSON AFTER a sell-out season and five-star reviews, Riverland audiences will be spoilt when Amity Dry brings her Mother Wife & the Complicated Life musical to the Chaffey Theatre on October 9. Writer, lyricist, actress and producer, Amity promises laughter and tears as her show explores the comedies and tragedies of marriage and motherhood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all the same, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re young or old, rich or poor, living in the city or country - our experiences of motherhood and the feelings that we have are all the same,â&#x20AC;? she said. From the perspectives of four best friends, in different stages of their lives, the endearing musical illustrates the wins and woes of the modern woman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just tried to tell the real story of the modern woman and the modern mum, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trying to fit it all in, be everything to

â&#x2013; ACTING: Amity Dry has produced Mother Wife & the Complicated Life being performed at the Chaffey Theatre. everybody and usually ends up exhausted,â&#x20AC;? Amity said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an important

message that we get out to mums, motherhood is wonderful but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the version that we see on the Huggies ad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is hard work and there are moments when it does feel overwhelming and I really wanted to be able to talk about that in the show.â&#x20AC;? Amity said there are plenty of moments that audiences will treasure and relate to their own lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of moments where mums will say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I did the show in Adelaide, launching it in the Adelaide Fringe, I had women coming up to me afterwards saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;are you looking in my window, have you read my diary, this is exactly how I feel and these are the things I go throughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt fantastic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I started to write the show, I really wanted to write an honest account.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were moments when I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;this is very daunting, putting something so honest out thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To have it strike such a chord was fantastic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had so many amazing emails from people saying â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;thank you, you made me feel better about thingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;? Amity hopes Riverland audiences will embrace the musical with the same enthusiasm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to see lots of girls coming with their mother groups, with a big group of girlfriends or their mum and their sister,â&#x20AC;? she said. She promises, though, that any men that come along, to the October show will have plenty to laugh about as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If a man is dragged along, he will be safeâ&#x20AC;Śitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a man bashing show!â&#x20AC;? Tickets for Mother Wife & the Complicated Life are on sale at the Chaffey Theatre now.

Go Radio set to take Soundwave by storm By BRAD PERRY ON the most recent Warped Tour in America, Florida band Go Radio guitarist Alex Reed found himself in one of the most bizzare circles of people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At one point I was standing with a group of people where there was Jeffery Star, Wee Man and Dustin Diamond, who played Screech from Saved By the Bell,â&#x20AC;? he laughed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(They) were all talking in the same circle I was standing in and I was just like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;what is going on, this is outrageousâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was almost like everyone was trying to compete with how much cooler they are than the other person, so I just sat back and watched the egos battle each other.â&#x20AC;? While it is common for rock stars to meet celebrities, Go Radio is still getting used to its growing fan base since forming in 2007. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When bands start, it takes a

â&#x2013; ROCKERS: American band Go Radio will be attending Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Soundwave Counter Revolution at Fowlers Live in Adelaide. little while to develop who you want to be in the long run and where you want to go and what you want to to say,â&#x20AC;? Alex told the Riverland Weekly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to believe in the music yourself before anybody is else is going to believe.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our fanbase is an unbelievably, rare fanbase.â&#x20AC;? The rock band will join 19 other bands to play at Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Soundwave Counter Revolution, at Fowlers Live, in Adelaide. The original Soundwave Revolution event was cancelled in

August after headlining bands were unable to attend. Alex said the band, which has former Mayday Paradeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jason Lancaster as vocalist, is looking forward to the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten a lot of response on the internet over the years from people over in New Zealand and Australia,â&#x20AC;? he said. Describing the band as â&#x20AC;&#x153;not another flash in the pan pop bandâ&#x20AC;?, Alex said a music career is a lot of hard work but is very rewarding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably one of the most satisfying experiences ever,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There might not be a lot of money at first and you might live very hard for a long time doing it but it is like a disease, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop doing it once you get a taste of it.â&#x20AC;? At least that was the case until Alex was forced to sign a manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bottom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was hairy and it was weird,â&#x20AC;? he laughed.

I found myself watching one of the do-ityourself programs recently and thinking that I could possibly create my own outdoor setting. The program said the process was easy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just follow the steps and before you know it, you will have brand new furniture,â&#x20AC;? it said. This got me thinking, does anybody actually attempt television DIY? Does anyone really want to create a bird aviary just because the television told you to? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get me wrong, DIY is a fantastic concept but what happened to basic, uncomplicated DIY? The male population needs to know how to fix the leaking pipe or clean out the gutters and maybe, just maybe then, they can make a DIY, six level bird sanctuary.

Movie of the week Sherlock Holmes A REMAKE of the famous Sherlock Holmes movie could have gone two ways; either a great triumph or miserable flop. Performances from Robert Downey Jnr, Jude Law and Rachel McAdams make the acting first rate. The plot revolves around detective Holmesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bid to save England from the threat of his arch nemesis. Shame on you if you have not seen this.

CD of the week Relapse - Eminem IT took Eminem five years to produce this 2009 album and one wonders why he even bothered. Most of his listeners are used to Eminemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blunt, straight to the point lyrics and catchy choruses. This album delivers very little in terms of memorable songs and manages to have a dig at a number of celebrities.

Book of the week The Vanished Man Jeffery Deaver

Famous comedianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Riverland show

AWARD-winning author Jeffery Deaver delivers an absolute masterpiece in this novel. Well known Deaver characters Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are up against a psychotic illusionist. A book you will not put down.

Appearing on Wednesday at the Chaffey Theatre, Arj Barker - Eleven will feature an hourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of new stand-up material which is set to keep the audience laughing. Arj will tackle 11 different topics, including 3D movies, death, prawns and Google Maps in a manner which people have grown to love. Arjâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance has been described by city media as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a joy to spend an hour in his worldâ&#x20AC;? and was recently given a five-star rating.

Game of the week Dead Rising 2 - PS3 & Xbox 360 THIS game is certainly not for the faint hearted or young teenagers. You play as Chuck, a man trying to get medication for his sick daughter Katey. The only problem is the medication is in a shopping mall and everyone has turned into zombies. You can work your way through zombies using just about anything as a weapon. This game is a heck of a lot of fun and at times, crazy.

32 • Riverland Weekly – Thursday September 29, 2011


Urgent call to keep tennis alive in Monash ONE of the Riverland’s oldest tennis clubs is in serious danger of entering into remission next month due to a shortage of players and committee members. Operating with a bare minimum for several years, the Monash Tennis Club’s hierarchy is prepared to put a stop to the struggle and will hold a second annual general meeting after its first was cancelled a fortnight ago after only two members were in attendance. Secretary Lawrie Guppy said the meeting will be the final call for anyone interested in keeping the club alive. “No one turned up for our AGM (recently), it was only the president (Ian Webber) and myself,” he said. “If locals want to see it continue, they better front up on the


C CALLUM TTRIFONOFF fourth of October.” “It’s got a long history and it’d be a shame to see it fold. “We’ve got four virtually new courts, all under lights.” Despite interest from new juniors, Mr Guppy said the club has faced a major battle in attracting enough players to fill a junior team and he admitted the club’s survival was a long shot. “I have heard from the (Monash) primary school there is a few kids interested in playing but you can’t run a club with just juniors,“ he said. “You need senior players as well.”

“(Last year, junior players’) mates played at Berri or Barmera and they wanted to play with them. “We didn’t have any others coming in from the lower ranks to fill their spot. “At this stage, I’m not really confident we can get the right numbers to continue.” Community members committed to the survival of the Monash Tennis Club are urged to attend the annual general meeting being held at the Monash Community Club on Tuesday, at 7.30pm. ■ FUTURE: Monash Tennis Club president Ian Webber ponders the future of his club.

Talented Marnie rewarded for sporting achievements THE Riverland has a fine reputation for producing quality young athletes and multi-talented, pint-sized Marnie Stewart is no exception. In only her third year of playing soccer, 14-year-old Marnie, who plays for Berri River Rangers, was the joint winner of the Riverland Soccer Association’s Open Women’s Best and Fairest trophy last Friday night. Riverland Soccer Association secretary Adrian Pipe said it was unusual for someone so young to win the prestigious award, however, Marnie was a very deserved winner of the trophy. “It is unusual for someone at her age and build to win the award,” Pipe said. “The girls are generally 16 to 17 but Marnie was definitely a standout player. “She has very good fitness and stamina and she reads the ball well. “Marnie has got the drive to do anything she wants to.”


JANE WILSON It is high praise indeed from Pipe but Marnie’s tennis coach Mike Horsman has even more admiration for his young protégé, who has been playing tennis since the age of five. “She is very determined and just doesn’t give up,” Horsman said. “She gives anything a go, trying anything new. “She’s a naturally talented athlete.” But it is not just Marnie’s physical ability that Horsman is proud of. “She is always available to help the younger kids,” Horsman said. Her eagerness to assist with the young players was no doubt part of the reason why Marnie was awarded the Darnley Taylor Junior Tennis Sports Person Award at the

conclusion of the last Riverland tennis season. Last season Marnie not only played at the number one position, in division one, for the Berriview Tennis Club’s juniors but would go on to play at number one or two, in division two, in the senior competition in the same day. She said during tennis season, Saturdays are a big day but she loves nothing more than to have a hit of tennis. “Out of soccer and tennis, I prefer tennis but soccer is close behind,” Marnie said. “I just love the game and how you get to meet new people. “I prefer singles to doubles because I don’t like to let people down.” Marnie hopes to one day move to Adelaide and pursue a career in editing magazines or become a pilot. With such a diverse career path in mind, it is little wonder she wants

to continue with two such different sports when she goes to Adelaide. Playing tennis at tournament level or perhaps playing soccer with Adelaide United’s women’s league are Marnie’s sporting goals. “I’ll definitely always play tennis and hopefully soon I can start to coach little kids,” she said. Although Marnie has been training for tennis during winter, she has one more soccer commitment before she starts her tennis season. This weekend she will be part of the state country under 14 girls’ soccer team competing against Adelaide metro teams, in Adelaide. Despite being a late inclusion in the squad, there is little doubt Marnie will be a valued member of the team and there will be no surprise if she makes state selection. There is not much of Marnie Stewart but this is not the last that we will hear of this little pocket rocket with a big heart and even bigger future.

WAIKERIE Football Club was one of the many football and rugby clubs around Australia recently taking part in the fight against breast cancer with the Footy’s Hidden Heroes program. The program saw participating clubs nominate female volunteers on the program’s official Facebook

site with the entry with the most nominations winning $25,000. Despite one of its entries holding the lead for sometime, Waikerie could not gather enough support and dropped to 17th place by the end of the competition. However, taking part in the program was a pleasure according to Waikerie Football Club president

Fast pace for karts By GRAHAM CHARLTON WITH 73 entries from this state amongst the 285 karts involved in the 2011 Australian Dirt Kart Titles titles in Busselton, WA, this weekend, the Nullabor Plain has seen a lot of South Aussies heading west over the last week or so. Fourteen different classes from rookies, seven years and over, to 200cc open class are being contested. Amongst drivers from this region who have made the long trip for the championships are Loxton’s Zachary Hammerstein, who

will compete in the junior heavy class, and Morgan pair Dylan Ellis in both J open and KT light and Barry Heinrich in KT twin and 200cc open. Other Morgan members who nominated for the event are Claire Bradley (125 light), Aaron Bradley (125 heavy) and Brook Alexander (125 heavy and outlaw). Joining them from the Blanchetown club are Gary Fisher in Statesman and 100cc open classes and Eric Austin in statesman. The Morgan club will host the SA championships in May next year.

Henry Crawford. “We won a footy and a t-shirt signed by Shane Crawford so that was pretty good,” Mr Crawford said. “We couldn’t rally enough support in the end to get the 25 grand but it was still good.” Mr Crawford said taking part in the program was good promotion for the club. “There would have been

a fair bit of people logging on and seeing our footy club’s name,” he said. “It’s easy and it’s free so (we would) definitely (take part again). “It’s working to help breast cancer (in) Australia.” Through the awareness campaign, sponsor Nissan Australia presented the Breast Cancer Network Australia with a $100,000 cheque.

Captain consistent wins By CALLUM TRIFONOFF BERRI River Rangersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s captain Steve Atkinson won his fourth Riverland Soccer Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best and Fairest award and first Steve Poutakidis Medal on Friday night. Atkinson, who had previously won best and fairest awards in the association in 2003, 2005 and 2006, polled 23 votes, seven ahead of Renmarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kyle Collinson. After a stellar season where he scored 12 goals from the midfield and helped his team to a Top Four Cup semi-final berth, Atkinson was the runaway winner. Paying tribute to late RSA president Steve Poutakidis, Atkinson said it was a major honour to win the medal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a lot more sentimental value in it now with a name behind it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a massive honour and Steve had a massive involvement in Riverland soccer.â&#x20AC;? While ecstatic to claim the award, Atkinson said he would have loved to have added a premiership to his consistent season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you play soccer for, to win premierships and Top Four Cups,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With our culture at Berri, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a great committee, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a great club.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, in a surprising turn of events at Friday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Riverland Soccer Association presentations, two open womens players tied for the coveted best and fairest award. Berri River Rangersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; young

ace Marnie Stewart and Renmark Olympic star Angela Pavlomanolakos tied for first place in the count after equally brilliant seasons. Fourteen-year-old Stewart played a pivotal role in the Rangersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Top Four Cup win over Olympic recently and said she was thrilled to win at such a young age. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m shocked (to win),â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels really good though, I feel Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a good season this year.â&#x20AC;? Despite receiving the individual honour at such a young age, Stewart said her main aim this year was for Berri to claim the Top Four Cup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were expecting Renmark

(to win) because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had such a great season,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the girls have improved so much (and have come) really far.â&#x20AC;? Pavlomanolakos said she too was surprised to win the best and fairest award as the level of competition had improved greatly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big shock to me,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve improved a fair bit since the start of the year.â&#x20AC;? In Riverland junior soccer, Spiro Polymiadis (Loxton) won the under 16 best and fairest, Riley Wallace (Barmera) claimed the under 13 division one top honour and Tyson Kent (Berri) was the under 13 division two winner.

New era for local Twenty20 â&#x2013; From Page 36 With an entry fee of $100, cricket teams from the Riverland A and B grades, Mid Murray, Renmark District and Pinnaroo and Border competitions will be invited to participate in a bid to win a small monetary prize. Newly appointed RTCA president Dan Shawyer said the feeling across the local teams was the Twenty20 format should remain but needed reinvigorating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The feeling...was it was something you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to get rid of but they are not overly excited about,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With that being said, if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s invitational, you can choose to partcipate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good reactive solu-

that down to Twenty20.â&#x20AC;? The shorter competition will run over five Sundays and is expected to be based in the Riverland. This seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program is expected to see RTCA A grade teams play 45 over one dayers before Christmas and two day matches after the festive break. Shawyer, who will play for Renmark in the RTCA this season, said the change of schedule will be a welcome change for cricket players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a player, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better than having the T20s in the middle of the season,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a really good season for the evenness of the competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The coming season is going to be awesome.â&#x20AC;?

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

Minimal teams register for A grade softball

■ BATTER UP?: With only Loxton and Cobdogla registering A grade softball teams this season, the sport’s future remains uncertain.

Where to next? ONLY two teams, Loxton and Cobdogla, have nominated for the A grade section of Riverland softball for the coming season. Berri’s first team moves down to B grade where they will be joined by Lyrup, Cobdogla, Loxton, Waikerie and Gerard while C grade comprises Renmark, Waikerie, Berri, Loxton and Cobdogla. Possibilities for a primary competition include Berri, Loxton, Waikerie and

Renmark. The season will get under way on Saturday, October 29 with an umpires’ clinic to be held in Mildura on October 22 and 23. Changes to the committee see Alicia Grenfell take over from Marianne Smith as president, Cara Venning (secretary), Annette Lowe (treasurer), Jo Gregory (records officer), Marianne Smith (umpires coordinator) and Mary Geddie

(carnival coordinator). Vacancies still exist for a junior development officer and a grounds person. At the beginning of the senior competition in 2010-11, the A and B grade teams were combined for the first half of the season and then rearranged into grades according to results up until that stage. Officials are still to settle on the arrangement for 2011-12.

Riverlanders to master games I CAN imagine there will be a huge exodus of people from the Riverland as they head for Adelaide to be part of the 13th Australian Masters Games being held from October 7 to 16. After all, there is surely something for everyone with some 58 sports being played. Fourteen thousand participants and supporters are expected from all over the world for this major event with all parts of Australia to be represented. Santos Stadium, the Superdrome track and the new Marion swimming complex will be utilised, while a special City of Adelaide Games Village has been created. This will be the hub for the event where accredited Games participants can re-

treat for nightly entertainment and functions every day and night throughout the 10 day period. International singing star Leo Sayer will perform at the opening ceremony. Sports include Riverland favourites from baseball, cycling, darts, golf to bowls. I wonder also whether any of our talented veteran rowers, swimmers or tennis players will compete? Amongst locals who I have heard are registered for the Games are those ‘masters’ of Masters Games, softballers Denise Moldovan and Gloria Dyer (Central Districts over ■ GAMES: Loxton softballer Cara Venning will compete at this year’s Australian Masters Games.

45’s) and Cara Venning, Kylie Loxton, Wendy Leckie, Vicki Taylor and Jo Gregory (NSW Cheaters over 35’s), while former leading boxer Brett Eckermann will apparently return to the ring. Plus I imagine many, many more locals will be involved.

Telfer claims hockey honour IN HIS position as a director on the board of Hockey SA, Berri’s Brett Stokes attended the association’s annual awards function at the Hotel Grand Chancellor, in Adelaide last Wednesday night. Talking to him upon his return home, it was more than obvious that he was indeed one proud Riverlander. A number of former local players featured in the presentations including Will Telfer (Renmark) who jointly won the men’s Premier League best and fairest award with his North East teammate Ryan O’Shea. O’Shea started his career in the Barossa association. A SA Hot Shots squad member, Will was also named in the men’s Team of the Year along with Waikerie’s Lachlan Seabrook who led the voting early before injury problems interrupted his season. Three young women who have played for Berri, Karri McMahon, Georgie Parker and Brooklyn Buchecker were acknowledged for their performances for the SA Southern Suns in winning the Australian Women’s League title with Karri and Georgie also named in the Team of the Year. Karri finished in the top ten in the women’s best and fairest voting.

A number of former and current local players have also been involved in Premier League finals in recent weeks. In the men’s competition, Renmark linked trio Will Telfer, his brother Richard and 15 year old Dalton Casey were all members of the North East team that won the grand final against Port Adelaide, 3-2, last Saturday. Dalton scored one of the goals.

A number of former local players featured in the presentations.

On the way through the finals, North East had won the second semi, 3-2, against Seacliff with Will Telfer scoring a goal. Loxton’s Matt Baird and Waikerie’s Lachlan Seabrook turned out for Seacliff with Lachlan netting a goal. Port Adelaide then ended Seacliff’s season in the preliminary final. Saturday’s women’s grand final had Berri sisters Karri

and Merinda McMahon (1 goal) also celebrating a premiership with their Adelaide team-mates after a 2-1 victory over Port Adelaide. The score in the game was an exact copy of the second semi-final when Adelaide defeated Port Adelaide before Port bounced back to gain another crack at Adelaide with a 3-2 win over Burnside in the preliminary final. A feature of the finals in hockey, both in Adelaide and locally, has been the close results. Surely the exposure to that type of pressure can only be benefitting the youngsters involved.

■ STAR: Former Berri player Karri McMahon received praise at the recent hockey awards.

Young Soccer talent looks to score goals on national stage YOUNG Renmark High School student Samed Altundag will be a member of the state under 14 team to compete in the 2011 FFA National Youth Soccer Championships in Coffs Harbour, NSW, next month. Samed has been assisted with his expenses for the trip by a donation of $250 from the Renmark Lions Club, generously offered in accordance with part of their charter ‘to assist the youth in their community’. The talented junior

had been playing with the Renmark Olympic Club after starting as a six year old until he joined the Adelaide Blue Eagles in the city in recent times. In yet another example of the sacrifices being made by Riverland families to give youngsters every opportunity to progress in their sport, his parents drive him to Adelaide each week to either train or play. Talking to Riverland Soccer Association official Adrian Pipe, he predicts a bright future for Samed. “His father Ali was a

quality player with silky skills,” he said. “While his older brother Ibby is also a very good player for Olympic seniors.” “Ali’s passion and commitment is shared by Samed. “He is quite a tall lad and looks like developing into a fine attacking player. “If he is not in Adelaide practicing, you will often see him being put through his paces locally by his dad,” he added. We will watch Samed’s progress with interest.

When your mate turns into someone who speeds, it’s up to you to tell them. Prevent Matemorphosis.

Bowls rolls on

■ BOWLING: With the warmer weather kicking in, many Riverland lawn bowls competitions have already begun.

OUR sport that never really stops, lawn bowls, is currently starting its various 2011-12 competitions. Women’s pennants got under way yesterday, midweek triples commence next Wednesday and men’s pennants on Saturday week. All of our clubs, from the small to the large, have held various events in the off-season, including their highly successful spring carnivals. Capacity fields have again been reported across the region and it has been pleasing to hear the usual large number of visitors have continued coming to the area, many for extended stays. As far as men’s pennants are concerned, there was some talk off-season of reducing division one sides to three rinks and adding to the number of teams at top level but the status quo remains. The composition of division one teams is interesting. I understand the reduction of teams to three rinks has been widely adopted in country competitions both in this state and across the border. As far as chances for the 201112 division one premiership are concerned, Berri again appears the standout. It seems they have kept their successful line-up intact and, have in fact, been strengthened by the addition of players from clubs like Lyrup and Monash, including the return of Louie Recchia, a proven campaigner. 2010-11 grand finalist and traditional Berri rival, Loxton, may

have some problems with key personnel like Malcolm Wachtel, Peter Kimber, David Kimber and Brian Bullock, apparently late starters for various reasons. On the positive side, Keith ‘Squizzy’ Taylor seems set to return. It will also be interesting to see whether any of the younger brigade at Loxton, who have entered the sport via the club’s Flexi Rink Program and have impressed, are prepared to move to higher ground. Waikerie, indeed, could be a major threat. Their best last season was not far away from the big guns and it now seems that the addition of several players, including Ned Harcombe, from Barmera, could add to a ‘pressure for places’ situation that can only contribute to improved team performance. Visitors to Waikerie have reported on an excellent ‘club spirit’ going into the new season. Renmark played well below their potential in 2010-11 and many people are still wondering why, as they really appeared to have the personnel to go all the way. The club has certainly spruced up their facilities off-season and perhaps the new environment will contribute to a new atmosphere. Reports are that talented John Thompson will return to first division. Renmark RSL expect to be much the same as they were last season, although there may be a few adjustments to duties within the rinks as

they try to elevate themselves from the borderline between the top and lower teams. Barmera, too, are crying out for new players to add depth and improve their results at the top level but indications are that they also will rely fairly much on last year’s personnel. Lawn Bowls? Our most successful teams have proven they are up there with the best but it is perhaps unfortunate that the same teams seem to have filled the top and bottom rankings in the showcase competition for so long. From a straight out sports follower’s point of view, may bowls 2011-12 be chock-full of upsets and surprises. And while talking of surprises, I am told that the 2011-12 program names Ian Kubank as secretary, after several months ago I wrote that Ian would be standing down and would be sadly missed at a time when there was a number of critical issues on the bowls’ table. Sorry, but believe me, I was not just ‘shooting from the hip’ in that announcement. Correspondence from the RBA after 2010-11 did advise all clubs of Ian’s retirement and ask them for their assistance in finding a replacement. Bowls seems fortunate to have some very persuasive people amongst its leaders as they work to keep their sport on track, as not so many years ago, I recall a similar decision by an RBA president of the time that solved a difficult vacant position problem.

Golf Week off agenda

Looking back at... Life as a young Norwood footballer RECALLING a premiership win by a Norwood under 19 football team in 1971 may seem out of place in a column like this but when one considers the amount of Riverland involvement in the one point win over Port Adelaide, I am more than comfortable that it belongs. In fact, it is also worth reflecting on the ground breaking approach Norwood took to dealing with the difficulties associated with encouraging young players to leave the country and adapt to life and football in the ‘big smoke’ at that time. Graeme Madden was one such youngster who moved from Loxton to join the Redlegs. After receiving letters inviting him to join most of the SANFL clubs, he was visited by Norwood football great Wally Miller. “I knew in a moment that here was a man who would look after me, a 17-year-old who was not at all keen to leave home,” Graeme explained. “So I decided to join Norwood at the end of 1969.” The club had introduced a unique approach to housing country recruits, prior to the introduction of zoning. Carmel Court at Kensington was managed by some unbelievable ladies, including, at that time, champion Phil Carman’s mother who

had been a major factor in enticing many young footballers from far and wide to the club. Apart from Madden, who was the captain of the 1971 team, other members of that side staying at Carmel Court, from Loxton, included Barry Pontt, Rex Jaeschke and Jeff Sullivan. Also there from the town but in other grades, were Tony Gill, Greg Thiele and Peter Senic, while Renmark’s Peter

There seems to be a genuine bond between all of the people that stayed together at Carmel Court in those years. In fact, those that were attached to that particular under 19 side were amongst the 40 or so that attended a 40 year reunion at the Robin Hood Hotel, in Adelaide, last Friday night. Wally Miller was there as guest speaker while another member of the team, Neil Craig, also made an appearance.

I knew in a moment that here was a man who would look after me. Goodale, Rodney and Daryl Seekamp also lived at the unique facility. Colin Baker, who in latter years was a teacher at East Murray, also stayed there amongst a bevy of players that went on to play at the top level, including Carman, ‘Gentleman’ John Wynne, Neil Button, Michael Taylor, Noel Pettingill, Mike Poulter, Greg Turbill and Glen Rosser. As Graeme Madden said, “Carmel Court proved to be a way for people to be taken out of the country and to go on to play top football”. That 1971 flag obviously remains special for those involved but it is even bigger than that.

Craig had won the under 17 Tomkins Medal that season but played in the under 19 grand final. “Many times during Neil’s coaching at the Crows, when I have seen him on TV, I have said to my wife Lorraine that I wish he would lighten up and be like he used to be with us,” Graeme said. “Well, he did on Friday night and he was brilliant.” Indeed the former Crows’ mentor, who arrived at Carmel Court as a 13-yearold and at one stage spent some time as a prac-teacher at Browns Well, must have considered the reunion special. When I rang Graeme at

8.30am last Saturday morning for a chat on Radio 5RM’s sports program, Craig had beaten me by 20 minutes ‘to thank him for organising the previous evening’. Craig’s brother Ian, who played in 1971 but was not a member of the grand final line-up, travelled from Queensland’s Gold Coast for the reunion. Looking back at that Norwood under 19 premiership also gave me the chance to catch up with not only Graeme Madden but with Barry Pontt. The pair are yet another two former Riverland sports people that enjoyed magnificent careers. As it turned out, particularly in cricket. Mind you, along with Rex Jaeschke, who moved to the USA and embarked on a successful career in computers, the pair also suffered major knee injuries not long after that 1971 triumph, that no doubt prevented them from reaching to even greater heights in their sport. Chatting to both Barry and Graeme about their time in both football and cricket, they really did enjoy superb careers on-field. However, I could not help but notice that some of their best memories are about the time they spent at Carmel Court.

■ SWING: Riverland Golf Week is unlikely to be held again, despite its successful record in previous years. TWELVE months or so ago there were reports that one of the most successful events ever staged here, Riverland Golf Week, was going to make a comeback. Indeed, a check of the local 2011 program had it included for May 11 to 17. In its heyday, year after year, the tournament had attracted huge numbers from all parts of Australia to our region, to enjoy our magnificent grass courses. People, including Loxton’s Alan Ling, apparently put an enormous amount of work into getting Riverland Golf Week up and running again. But without chasing up specific details, there apparently proved to be too many obstacles in re-establishing the golf classic. It is a great shame when this type of situation occurs, as our magnificent facilities and weather remain our biggest assets in attracting visitors to the region.
