NEW POOL ON AGENDA Berri Barmera Council eyes $2m in federal assistance

By BRAD PERRY THE Berri Barmera Council is likely to seek more than $2 million in the second round of the Regional Development Australia Fund to upgrade Berri’s ageing swimming pool. After the Riverland missed out on any contribution to projects in the $1 billion first round, Berri Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton said the town needs help to upgrade the Hayden

Stoeckel Swimming Pool. “The pool is outdated,” he said. “It was built in the ‘60s, it’s got some problems and if we want a facility that can cater for the future and look after the swimming needs for people who want to do competitions and also for families, we need to have a better facility.” The Federal Government fund has been set up to support the infrastructure needs and economic growth of Australia’s regions and is designed to leverage investment for

long term benefits. The second round of the RDA program is valued at $150 million and applications open next month. With council’s current financial situation, Mr Beaton said matching large funding will be challenging. “There is a couple of major things that we think need to be done but we’ve got to put some funding in as well and we can’t afford to go too big or too strong if we can’t afford to put in our contribution with the Federal Govern-

ment,” Mr Beaton said. If council was successful in applying for funding to upgrade the Hayden Stoeckel Pool, Mr Beaton said the facility would potentially be relocated to, or near, Glassey Park. “We are trying to co-locate things together,” he said. “So we’d probably move the current swimming pool to somewhere that’s closer to some of these other facilities we’ve got like Glassey Park.”

The funding may also leverage an upgrade of Berri’s gymnasium. “We’re going to apply and try and get a new swimming pool facility and hopefully attached to that we want to try and have a gymnasium as well to look after the outdated facility that the youth club have got,” Mr Beaton said. It is understood the council will discuss the finer details of the proposed application before going ahead.

New venue for Loxton tree festival THE venue has changed for the Loxton Christmas Tree Festival. This year’s festival, from November 26 unil December 18, will now be the Loxton CWA Hall. The Christmas Craft Fair, held in conjunction, will be held in the RSL Club on Sunday, December 4 Organiser Jacque Westbrook says the change of venue is for 2011.

Bumper orange crop a marketing challenge CITRUS growers in the Riverland are being urged to work together to market a larger than expected valencia crop. According to the SA Citrus Industry Development Board CEO, Andrew Green, a crop of 60,000 tonnes of valencias is expected. “The valencia crop for this year is similar to the one in 2009-10 however fruit size, while highly variable, is slightly bigger than the historical average,” Mr Green said. “Better water availability will give growers the opportunity to improve fruit size for their markets, while the recent fall in the Australian dollar and the late navel season in the United States will help to improve export potential.” Mr Green said that while the valencia estimate had risen from 50,000 to 60,000 tonnes, the total navel crop estimate was left unchanged with winter navels at 60,000 tonnes and summer navels at 25,000 tonnes.

Raise your glass to the Riverland THE Riverland region’s energy, enthusiasm and positive attitude should be used as an inspiration to other country areas around the state. The wide range of major and clearly successful events locally of late, and coming up, demonstrate that the region has not let economic and water woes crush its spirit. It’s positive to note too that the majority of these events - the sheepdog trials, agricultural shows, rose festivals and wine and food weekend - are not directly dependent upon the river as such, although it certainly enhances them. This should be heartening for tourist operators, particularly amid predictions of substantial flow decreases in coming weeks. Metropolitan media has focused greatly on the ‘doom and gloom’ facing the region, with little positive result. In fact, as an outsider, I was pleasantly surprised to find vibrant business centres, extremely cheerful customer service staff and large crowds of visitors at local events. The region should do well to concentrate energy on trying to ensure the message of good, old country resilience and friendliness is highlighted to would-be visitors and investors too. The Riverland and Mallee is clearly a long way from being out of the woods economically, but there appears to be a genuine interest and willingness to look at making changes to some of the traditions of the regions. Looking at alternative crops and exploring mining options are among some of the economic changes gaining momentum and support. Tourism opportunities not directly connected to the River Murray are also being pursued. The Riverland region has so much to offer and the people of the region deserve to be congratulated on the spirit that has kept the area alive, vibrant and positive in the face of adversities that would surely crush some areas that lack a ‘can do’ and united attitude. *Carolyn Jeffrey was acting in the editor’s position this week.

Accommodation outlets under pressure as festival nears

Blooming great outlook for Rose Festival By BRAD PERRY RIVERLAND accommodation houses are feeling the squeeze with vacancies scarce in the lead up to what is being described as the biggest ever Renmark Rose Festival. The Renmark Rose Festival Committee was forced to purchase roses abroad for last year’s event due to very unseasonal weather and late blooms. However, Festival Committee vice chairperson Shann Hausler said this year was very differetnt with roses across the region out in full bloom for the official opening of the festival tomorrow. “Last year the roses were a bit late and we actually had to buy some from overseas but this

year, looking at all the buds and the great rains we’ve had and the really gentle weather, I think it will really be tremendous,” she said. “Last year was exceptional. “We’ve never done it before but the roses were so late, we just ran out of our own roses for the beautiful arrangements David Ruston does in the (Renmark) institute. “We won’t have to do it this year.” With advanced bookings for next year before the 2011 event begins, Mrs Hausler said the festival will bring in vital tourism dollars. “We’re booking ahead currently for 2012 buses,” she said. “There is so much in-

terest, which brings a lot of people to the Riverland to be able to optimise that tourism potential for everyone in the region. “We won’t quite have the international number but we’ve certainly got interstate interest, locals and people from Adelaide and the different rose clubs around Australia. “I think it’s (the tourism influx) because people are travelling in Australia and in their own regions rather than overseas and I think last year really put us on the map with all the international visitors.” While Renmark accommodation is expected to be almost fully booked, Mrs Hausler said the rest of the region will also benefit. “We started book-

ing accommodation last year at the last one and we knew in advance that there were already massive bookings,” she said. “Accommodation is really at a premium and it is wonderful because it spills over into the other towns. “It is not just Renmark, Renmark fills up very

‘Backlog’ hits Glassey Park By BRAD PERRY THE Glassey Park development is caught in a “back log” of applications for State Government planning approval but is pushing ahead regardless. Detailed drawings and costs for the Berri development are currently being investigated, with the Berri Barmera Council almost certain to receive the all clear from the government to proceed with plans. The council is seeking changes to the planning regulations on the Berri riverfront, so the current bowling club land can be developed. This would then allow for the bowling club to be moved

to Glassey Park. Berri Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton said the approval process had taken longer than expected. “All of these things seem to take longer than you think is reasonable but with State Government cutting back on staff and things like that, what you hope would be done quickly often becomes a lengthy process,” he said. “There is a new Minister for Planning, John Rau, and my understanding is he’s cleared a lot of the back log for development assessment plan amendments that need to go through and that ours is one of the ones that went to the department and the

minister to try and get through. “We’re happy with how the department is now responding and the actions of the minister in this area.” Mr Beaton said plans are pushing forward on the expectation that the council will receive the approval. “We’re moving ahead on the basis that it is all going to happen,” he said. “We don’t want to wait for an approval from the government and then start the process, so we’ve been doing the process for a while, we’ve worked out all the concepts for the buildings and now we need to get the detail and get all that costed out.”

quickly, so there is opportunity for other towns to get some of that tourism accommodation. “It is just shaping up to be the biggest and the best (Rose Week).” To download a complete program for the Renmark Rose Festival visit www.renmarkroses. com.

Lake Bonney speed review SPEED limits on the southern edge of Lake Bonney are to be reviewed. The Berri Barmera Council plans will seek feedback on reducing the size of th 4-knot speed zone. The slower speed limit was implemented for the safety of swimmers, but it’s not used frequently by swimmers and boating activities, are forced to operate under restrictions. A meeting involving the council, local boating representatives and the DTEI boating inspector, Andrew Lawson, has suggested the zone be cut by 200m at its eastern end to free up prime foreshore to be used by recreational boat users, windsurfers and kite surfers. The change will overcome problems wind and kite surfers have in complying with the speed limit, particularly when heading from the shore. The council plans to carry out public consultation before making a recommendation to the Minister, however, it has stipulated that this public consultation would not include a public meeting.

More time to enter writing contest PRIMARY school students across the Mallee now have more time to enter the Mallee’s Hidden Treasures Enviro-Stories Competition. The competition, run by the Mallee Catchment Management Authority, encourages students to research, write and illustrate a 15-page story about the unique biodiversity and threatened species of the Mallee region. Students now have until November 11 to submit their entries. Three winning entries will be published and e-books and/or hard copies will be made available to students throughout the region. Already the authority has been impressed by the entries received, particularly the large parcel from the Tempy Primary School.

Value of rabbits, fish to be recognised By CALLUM TRIFONOFF THE importance of rabbits and fishing in the early days of the Riverland is to be recognised through a new historic project. A sub-committee has been formed under the Loxton Historical Village and has been charged with spreading the word on the value of rabbits and fishing. The committee hopes to set up an exhibit at the village within the next few years and is searching for more information on the subject. Chairman Dave Kimber said the committee is hoping for grants from the historical village to fund the exhibit. “Ultimately, it’s a three or four-year timescale but we hope to have sufficient artefacts and sufficient information,” Mr Kimber said. “Then (we’d like to) attract some grant money to set up a couple of modern, interactive type exhibits down at the village to complement what’s already down there.” Mr Kimber said rabbits and fishing were

extremely vital towards the lifestyle for settlers in the early days of the Riverland, something he feels the historical village should recognise. “When the historical village was set up, they tended to concentrate on the early pioneers’ equipment for farming,” he said. “Then they went on and looked at the 1948 irrigation settlers and I just thought there was a gap. “Two absolutely vital staples of trade and survival were rabbits and fishing in the early days. “Some people relied on rabbits entirely for living (and) I thought it was very important that that should be reflected in the village.” ■ GOOD, OLD DAYS: Loxton’s Charlie Harvey and Rabbits & Fishing sub-committee chairman Dave Kimber will be searching for information on the early importance of rabbits and fishing in the Riverland to set up an exhibit at the Loxton Historical Village.

Call for joint use ‘Riverland’ airport WHILE all towns currently have their own airports for small planes and gliders it is my understanding that to attract, for example, BHP to use this region as a FLFO (fly-in/fly-out) location their minimum requirement is the capability to land 50-seat planes in almost all conditions. This requires a runway landing capacity of 30,000 lbs/sq inch, northsouth and east-west runways 1500m long as well, of course, as the appropriate terminal facilities. Waikerie Airport for example I believe has the one east-west runway with an approx. 5,000 lb/sq inch capacity approx. 900m long. All among us who have done the research know that the cost for the required upgrade is out of the reach of a single council. With the dollars that we read about that are being made available for the growth of regional Australia, $20m for this region, so far from what has been advertised there has been none or minimal if any population growth achieved. This region as a whole needs population growth unconnected to agriculture to survive, retain and improve our current infrastructure, communities and way of life. I believe that at this time each community is fighting for its own survival.We need to fight as one for the survival of the whole region. The opportunity for the families of FIFO workers to live in our environment, with the infrastructure that this region as a whole has to offer, combined with the lack of crime and the community spirit that country living provides would be a massive attraction to families of all ages. One central major airport that

complies with the requirements of FIFO would greatly assist that growth without any reliance on current employment sources. Can/are all of the region’s councils prepared to put localised growth aside and combine their resources to support a push for a new, centrally located airport, `The Riverland Airport` to support/benefit the region as a whole? The articles in this week’s Rivernews reinforces that companies, workers and governments see this region as an area ideal for FIFO with a current enquiry into the challenges/ opportunities that they provide rural communities. Can/are our leaders combining their resources to submit a submission supporting this region as a whole? I hope so. Mark Tink, Waikerie

Pensioners defended I WOULD like to reply to a Mr Arnold Jago who has been writing to the local press lately about poker machines. I refer to his statement about pensioners who can lose $120 in an hour. According to Mr Jago, this is money needed for food, clothing and paying their bills that disappears. Mr Jago, I am an aged pensioner who enjoys a flutter on the pokies. I am one of a group of friends who go to lunch then play the pokies. We are all widows. We have never spent $120. We do not drink, smoke, nor go to expensive restaurants. My freezers are full, my bills are paid (on time) and my wardrobe is also full. I can vouch for the same for my friends. While we are playing pokies, we

meet and chat to other pensioners we know who are also playing. These ladies are all smartly dressed and none of them look like they need a good meal. We know there are problem gamblers who lose money in all sorts of ways, so don’t judge all pensioners. I worked for my money and do not appreciate anyone telling me what I can ad can’t do with it. Pensioners have reared their families and have only themselves to worry about and are entitled to spend their time doing whatever they enjoy. J Sonntag, Berri

Advice for the elderly I CAME to Adelaide from the UK in 1964 on the Oronsay, although then I was Mrs Domleo; until 1991. When I returned to the UK there was a fuss because elderly patients had been deliberately left without food and water by a sister. Forty-plus had died after a fortnight or so. Euthanasia is still illegal in UK! I also remember seeing an editorial in The Messenger in which it said seriously that anyone not obeying their GP about not smoking, dieting etc should be taken “bush” and “put down”. These days, being over 70 myself, but with a parent well, I feel uneasy about euthanasia. I was born after World War II and know the UK has had to tighten its laws to allow a donee or donees to be appointed only through the law courts. Best to check with the government about donees etc before you are senile and learn about the Public Trustee office. Julia Bachmann, Morgan

More action needed on mice By ZOE WATSON RIVERLAND and Mallee farmers have stepped up calls for better mouse baiting infrastructure in the region. With reports of significant damage already on the Eyre Peninsula, local farmers are concerned that no bait mixing stations have yet been established in this area. There’s an added worry that the increased mice numbers outside this region could result in a shortage of baits to combat a plague if it hits. Shadow Minister for Agriculture, Food and Fisheries Adrian Pederick said it was disappointing that the region did not have a station and doubted current bait stocks

were adequate. “I’ve certainly made the point in Parliament and to the Minister and his staff that we need a station servicing the Riverland and Mallee,� he said. “When it gets to crunch time, we always find that commercial quantities of bait aren’t available. “I would be surprised, if there was a resurgence of the mouse plague, that we would have enough bait on hand.� Controversy has surrounded the issue since a plague earlier in the season highlighted a lack of immediately available stock. “There’s no point trying to get bait organised two to four weeks after the event, once the mice have done their damage,� Mr

Pederick explained. Farmers have been left inconvenienced and out of pocket in the past with some grains having to be sent outside the region for mice treatment. “It’s caused a fair bit of work for people being prepared so that they can have access to cheaper bait than some of the commercial bait that’s been available. “Some of the commercial bait is three to four times what the cost of mixed bait can be so that is a huge cost to farmers. “Many farmers have had to put on multiple applications. This is costing farmers far too much. “I think it’s over $10 a hectare each application, so over time and over a lot of hectares it adds up.�

Bait mixing stations in other areas have also faced problems, some being closed for exceeding permitted tonnages of mixed bait. “The Australian Pesticide and Veterinary Management Authority has a very strict permit process with only a certain amount of tonnes to be mixed at each station,� Mr Pederick said. According to Mr Pederick, farmers should be able to mix bait on farm to ensure ample and economical supply, in the emergency of a plague. “Farmers all have to do chemical certification courses and have chemical accreditation to operate with chemicals on their property and farmers are well used to using F6 and F7 chemicals,� he said.

‘Lucky’ dog in need of home By CAROLYN JEFFREY BERRI couple Allirra Chaunut and Clifford Piper are no strangers to animal rescues, but their latest will leave them with some indelible memories - both good and bad. A casual drive to Renmark last month was cut short when the couple spotted a chocolatecoloured dog inadvertently “playing chicken� with the traffic on the Old Sturt Highway. “We saw the dog and stopped ... we just knew it was going to get hit,� Allirra explains. After watching the vehicles getting closer and closer, Clifford made a desperate lunge at the dog, only to see it panic and run straight into the path of a four wheel drive. “She was thrown about two metres in the air and did somersaults. “The yelp she made will haunt us for a long time,� a clearly emotional Allirra recounts. The couple was then shocked when the driver simply hopped out and checked his vehicle for damage, with his female passenger excusing the driver for not seeing the animal. There was no attempt to tend to the dog.

Clifford then lay down on the road trying to comfort and protect the badly injured and distressed dog. “Then a complete stranger with a station wagon stopped and offered to take the dog and Clifford to the vets. We were so grateful.� The prognosis wasn’t good - a fractured pelvis, collapsed lung, internal bleeding and fractured teeth, along with several wounds on her legs so deep the bones and tendons were exposed.

“The yelp she made will haunt us for a long time.�

Lucky spent a week at the Berri Veterinary Hospital and Emergency Centre before being released into the temporary care of her rescuers. The veterinary assistance required would have amounted to over $1000, according to the practice manager, Steve Clewer. However, the centre has borne this cost, happy that the dog’s rescuers could provide a good environ-

ment for Lucky to convalesce after her surgery. Mr Clewer said this was often the difficulty when stray animals were injured: there’s nowhere safe where they can receive care while they recover. Although Lucky has clearly settled into the household of her rescuers (the cries of delight, the excited tail wagging and the tongue lashings are dead giveaways), she cannot stay. “We’re so grateful the vets saved her life, but we have a dog of our own and can’t keep her,� Allirra explains. Lucky is well on the way to recovery and, apart from the bald patches around her injuries, you could be forgiven for not believing the ordeal. There’s little in the way of ongoing medical care required, she just needs to steer clear of the harder foods due to her broken teeth. Lucky is clearly a very intelligent animal with plenty of energy. Already she is adapting to being house trained and is comfortable around children and other dogs. Vets put her age at about oneand-a-half. Allirra and Clifford say Lucky deserves a loving

“They’ve got their own grain there, they can get the material in, go through the appropriate training and mix it on as farm as needed.� Mr Pederick believed the matter should be dealt with now. “They (plagues) don’t happen all the time, but we can not be waiting for these things to happen,� he said. “Everyone needs to play an active role, whether it’s people setting up bait mixing stations, whether it’s the other commercial bait providers, but I think the APVMA have to be a lot more proactive. “(They need to) realise what’s going on out there and look at the reality of the situation and what can happen in a hurry if a mouse plague takes hold.�

Mrs Najar took out the Excellence in Staff Development Award announced at a ceremony held in Barcelona. She was thrilled not only for herself, but also Cindy’s Hair and Beauty in which she dedicates many hours to staff development. “As it’s a national award, this is beating all the prestigious salons like the top, top salons in Sydney and Melbourne,� she said. “It’s just a real honour, especially as we’re a country salon.� Mrs Najar said to be recognised for the hard work put into the training system she has set up at the salon makes the effort worthwhile. “I’ve got a really developed system. For my training system to be awarded above of all the prestigious salons is a huge, huge honour,� she said. “We put in a lot of time and effort so to be rewarded is great.�

Loveday Camp patron visits “Generally, I like to see the history of service in Australia,� he said. At the reception, Maj Gen Phillips presented the council with a handmade woodwork box carved by an Italian internee in the camp. “It was given to my father in 1942 and now I’m passing it on.� He may have only made rare trips to the Riverland in the past but Maj Gen Phillips will always hold the region in high regard. “It’s a very attractive region, it’s had terrible economic times (though),� he said. “It’s a credit to the Riverland that it is always presented so well, it’s unsung, it’s got so much to offer. “In eastern states, you don’t hear much about the tourist potential (in the Riverland).� Mr Phillips believes it is important for people to know about the significance of internment camps like Loveday.

By CALLUM TRIFONOFF LOVEDAY Internment Camp patron Major General Peter Phillips paid the Riverland a visit this week. The former national RSL president was the guest of honour at a reception in the Berri Barmera Council chambers on Monday night. Maj Gen Phillips, who lives in Canberra, made the trip to the Riverland on Sunday. Despite living interstate, Maj Gen Phillips has a close association with the Loveday Internment Camps. “My father, Captain Walter Ray Phillips, was a dental officer in the camps,� he said. “I’m delighted I had the chance to come back and visit ... I’ve visited before a couple of years ago.� Another reason for wanting to be the internment camp’s patron was his distinguished 40 years of military service.

A member of the National Service, Ray believes with retired veterans ageing, more people need to become involved with RSL clubs. “A lot of the old people are getting older, they’re in their 80s,� he said. “You’ve got to come in and keep it running.�

Thelma Bishop turns 103 By CALLUM TRIFONOFF IN HER 103 years, Thelma Bishop has seen many towns around SA but none better than those in the Riverland. Thelma turned 103 on Friday and looked back on her time in the Riverland, which she has lived in for the majority of her life. “I’ve always loved the towns of Loxton, Waikerie and Berri,� she said. “I moved to Berri in 1932-33 and most of my childhood was spent all around the place.� Having also lived in Freeling (her birthplace) and Taylorville, Thelma was one of 12 children but said she never got to live in the same house as all of them. “I was always on the move but when I did get to see them, I liked them, they were all nice kids,� she said.

As a child, Thelma would follow the same routine every morning of getting up at 6am (which she still does now) and doing jobs around the farm before getting ready for school. “When I was younger and living on a farm, I’d get up at six o’clock and milk the cows, feed the pigs, then get ready for school,� she said. “Then, we’d go to school across the river in a row boat. “When the (1956) flood happened, we couldn’t always get to school across the river.� Thelma left at 14, thus beginning her life on the move, starting with a job as a housemaid. She has also been employed as a daycare teacher and has been heavily involved with the Anglican Church. “(The Riverland is) a nice place, there’s always plenty to do,� she said. “It’s on its own as a region.�

WHEN asked why it is important to be involved in a Returned Services League sub-branch, Waikerie RSL president Ray Truscott simply says “to keep the tradition of the RSL going.� For the past four years, Ray has been the club’s main man, putting tireless hours into functions such as bingo and making sure everything runs smoothly. “I just like being involved,� he said. “It’s something to do, you’ve got to try and keep the RSLs going.�

One of the more popular functions at the club is the bingo which Ray organises. “We have the benefit (bingo) night, we have six or seven of those a year,� he said. “We have (normal) bingo here every Thursday night.� The club is home to an impressive library and museum with many wartime books and items on display. “Both are very impressive,� Ray said. The club plans to upgrade the museum in the near future.

Church of Christ marks centenary AS Berri celebrated its centenary, so too did the local Church of Christ mark 100 years since the first service was held. About 200 people took part in the centenary celebrations. Among the special guests were several past ministers and members including Joyce O’Mealley (nee Mules) and Ruth Mansell (nee Chapple) who were members from the 1920s. The centenary cake was cut by Mrs Val Keightley. Sadly, the congregation’s oldest member, Mrs Thelma Bishop, at 103, was not well enough to attend. The Church has come a long way from its humble beginnings in a tent near Martin’s Bend.. It became affiliated with the SA Churches of Christ in 1913 and received their first official minister, Pastor Roy Raymond, early in 1914. After occupying a property now owned by St Catherines, the Church moved to its current premises on the Sturt Highway in 2000.

■ FRIENDS FROM WAY BACK: The Hooper and Sluggett girls have been friends since their youth with the Berri Church of Christ. Pictured at the recent centenary were (left) the Hooper girls - Lyn Tunks and Daphne Daniel - and (above right) the Sluggett girls Rosalie Richards, Joy Checker and Val Wasley.

Record Murray flows predicted by year end By BRAD PERRY AS River Murray flows into South Australia reduce in the coming weeks, an environmentalist has not ruled the river rising to eclipse last year’s record levels. Flow on Business principal Tony Sharley said flows into the region are expected to reduce to as low as 10,000 megalitres per day before a rise in just over a month. “There has been some very good rains, especially through the highlands area, which generates most of our run-off,” he said. “There is a lot of water at the moment flowing into Hume and Dartmouth, so what that will do is send another pulse of water down the Murray that should get here in probably five to six weeks’ time. “It won’t be enormous but

... we’ll probably get an even higher peak because the storages are virtually full ...

we’ve just had a nice little pulse of 35,000 megalitres move through the region.” The river was at a similar level around the same time last year before heavy rains caused flooding in some areas. “The high river that we had last year was triggered by rains that occurred in October, November and December,” Mr Sharley said. “So in a sense we’re just

coming into that time of year again. “It is very possible because the system is so wet. “If the rains occur, similar to what it did last year, we’ll probably get an even higher peak because the storages are virtually full and the catchment area is very, very wet.” Mr Sharley believes flows will not be high enough, at this stage, for locks and weirs to be removed. “You’ll probably see more of a drop below the locks than you will see above the Locks,” he said. “Just based on the rainfall we’ve had to date, at the moment it is just going to push the river back up to probably just above 30,000 (megalitres per day).” Surges of reasonable sized

Ridley Lions boost RSB THE Royal Society for the Blind will receive $400 as a result of the Ridley Lions Club’s assistance with the annual collection at Cambrai, Sedan, Nildottie and Swan Reach. The club recently played host to Courtney Blacker and Bianca Gazzola who spoke about health matters. Bianca is Healthy Murraylands Project Co-ordinator for a program designed to tackle issues of overweight, obesity and chronic disease in relation to community lifestyles. Courtney is Council Manager of OPAL, a program designed to promote healthy exercise and diet among children of the Mid Murray Region.

Lyrup community gym set to open THERE’LL be no excuse for not exercising in Lyrup when the community gym opens its doors officially on Sunday, October 23. The project has seen a gymnasium set up in the Lyrup Institute Hall through a joint project of local sporting clubs, the Lyrup Progress Group, Lyrup Village Association, Renmark Paringa Council, the Riverland be active officer and the Waikerie Recreation Centre. The opening at 10am, realises almost 12 months’ of work by volunteers. Volunteers will run the gym which features equipment from the Waikerie Recreation Centre partly funded by a council grant. The council’s community services manager, Jannene Graham, says the gym is testimony to the great work of the volunteers who have transformed the hall from a cobweb covered building used a couple of times a year, into a facility that will become a meeting place for all ages as well as being a great boost to the health of the local people.

WORLD EGG DAY

■EGG-CELLENT STAFF: Glen View Poultry Farm’s team of workers (clockwise, from left) Steve Schloithe, Tristan Jackson, Nathan Baxter and Kaylene, Sharon, Darren, Gemma and Cody Letton.

â– OFF TO MARKET: Steve Schloithe loads boxes of egg cartons onto the truck in readiness for their journey to sales outlets.

■SORT ‘EM OUT: Tristan Jackson sorts the eggs in the farm’s packing shed.

Tomorrow’s an eggstra-ordinary day YOU’LL often find them at breakfast; delicious when served fried, boiled or scrambled. Tomorrow, people around the world will pay homage to the oval-shaped delight that is the egg. Since 1996, World Egg Day, celebrated on the second Friday of October, has brought people around the world together to share the benefits of eggs. One of those is Glen View Poultry Farm owner Darren Letton who will be celebrating in a unique way. Glen View has recently been branding its eggs with slogans suggested by local radio station listeners. This will continue tomorrow. “Every fourth Friday we have a ‘slogan day’ (on Magic FM) and I’ve

got a few from there,� Darren said. However, in the future, the days of slogans on the eggs may become obsolete, thanks to a State Government Proposal. “We’re with Egg Corp Assured at the moment which is a quality assurance system program,� he said. “However, Egg Corp Assured will become Egg Standards Australia. ‘There will be a different logo on cartons ... and my little logos on the eggs, eventually they’ll end up becoming a best-before date. “The State Government also wants to run a food safety audit system too. “It’s probably a bit overkill but what it does is addresses the people who are selling eggs on the side of the road.�

Glen View which currently employs six full-time and four casual workers, has always had a strong following in the Riverland and its market has even expanded interstate. “We have a small market with the local Woolworths,� Darren said. “We get good support from Fisher’s IGA in Mildura. “(Locally), mostly Big River stores and Renmark Foodland are my biggest customers. “Then you’ve got your catering outlets like the Berri Hotel, the Renmark Hotel. You’ve also got your bakeries and cafes.� One retail outlet with which Glen View has seen much success is the Riverland Farmers’ Market which, according to Darren, adds

the thrill of face-to-face selling to his business. Darren’s parents regularly man Glen View’s stall at the market. “It’s my Mum and Dad’s hobby,� he laughed. “I’ve been there for the past (few) weeks, it’s been good. “It gives me a connection with the customers, they know of me but they don’t always know me. “Selling the eggs to them faceto-face is really good.� The recent Relay for Life event saw Glen View contribute its eggs for Sunday’s breakfast. This continued a connection the business has with the community. “We also donate eggs for Australia Day breakfast and Easter breakfast,� Darren said. “(We cater for) sporting groups

and scouting groups ... and the Renmark Lions Club as well.� There are seemingly endless responsibilities for Darren at Glenview. “What happens is chickens are rotated every two months so when they reach 18 months of age we sell most of them off live,� he said. “We pre-order the chickens a year before so we know the rotation schedule. “It’s the same with feed, I’ve got to make sure I order the feed a month in advance, make sure the silos are full, I’ve got to know the protein levels for the wheat.� While Darren admits some of his jobs are strenuous he loves owning and working in the business. “It’s good working for yourself, it’s something you know,� he said.

RIVERLAND WINE AND FOOD R

ADVERTISING FEATURE

Weekend of delicious indulgence THE temptation and indulgence of the tastebuds will begin tonight as the region’s Riverland Wine and Food weekend kicks off. The festival is a showcase of the best Riverland wine and food, perfectly matching fresh local delights for the tastebuds, while participants take in the beautiful natural landscape. Tonight’s Nippy’s Chefs of the Murray has been a sell-out. Local apprentice chefs will work alongside acclaimed guest chef Ayhan Erkoc, of Celsius Bar and Grill to dish up delights at a formal dinner. The five-course menu, developed by the renowned chef and prepared from seasonal regional produce, remains a secret but is sure to impress. A number of superb local wines will be available to complement the food and round out a memorable dining experience. Tomorrow night will see wine enthusiasts testing and tasting new wine varieties as organic winery 919 Wines hosts a specially designed blending workshop. Saturday’s Berri Resort Hotel Main Event will be a beautiful afternoon spent on the riverfront. Two thousand people are expected to meet for the main event, that will showcase nine local wineries, locally sourced and prepared food and a bevy of boutique wine producers as part of this year’s new Riverland Alternative Wine Group tent. Event organiser Amy Martinson said the festival is unique for its natural setting. “(It’s) about trying to create an experience around wine and food and the natural landscape,” Ms Martinson said. “The biggest thing we have is our backdrop. “If the weather comes together with that natural landscape … it’s an absolutely beautiful day and setting that you couldn’t beat.” Known for her powerhouse vocals, Jayne-Anne Power will seduce crowds with her own brand of popinfused jazz. “We’re hoping she’ll set a real mood,” Amy said. Supporting act is Riverland’s own singer songwriter Kelly Menhennett who will be gracing crowds with her band and ‘gypsy-jazz’ tunes. “A lot of people have probably heard Kelly, because she is from here which is really exciting, but I don’t know that they’ve heard her with her band,” Amy said. “It’s (Saturday) a chance to go

out have a few casual wines and if all the elements come together, it’s just a beautiful day out.” Wine Down is the perfect way to spend Sunday afternoon and is a culmination of smaller, intimate events at local wineries and unique riverside venues. Banrock Station, Illalangi, 919 Wines and Wilkadene Station with their Woolshed micro-brewery will each host relaxed events with indulgent menus, premium wines, brews and music. Riverland Wine and Food, in its ninth year, is a holistic wine and food experience that is not to be missed.

■ FUN: It is not just adults who embrace the Riverland Wine and Food Festival with a solid turnout of children also attending and having a good time.

FOR those who are not wine lovers but are planning to attend the Riverland Wine and Food Festival, the Woolshed Brewery has the options for you. The Woolshed will be serving its famous Amazon Ale beer on Saturday and owner Sarah Dowdell said her team is hoping for a successful day. In its first year of business, the Woolshed was swift to get involved in the festival and Ms Dowdell believes it is fun day for everyone. “It’s great for everyone to get together and enjoy great food and wine and now beer as well which is exciting and huge for the event,” she said. “A lot of people don’t want to drink wine and now they’ve got the beer option.” On the Sunday at the Woolshed’s premises, the brewery is hosting a ‘wine-down’ function featuring acoustic music on the lawns. “We’re getting the Pego’s Pizza guys down here,” Ms Dowdell said. “We’re doing a $25 ticket and that gets you a pizza, a glass of beer and a glass of wine. The Woolshed is located in rustic old shearing shed that has been cleverly transformed into a microbrewery/function centre with decking that overlooks the river and sweeping lawns. Find The Woolshed on Wilkinson Road at Murtho via Renmark.

■ LOCAL PERFORMER: Riverland singer songwriter Kelly Menhennett will be performing with her band on Saturday at the Berri Resort Hotel Main Event on the riverfront.

■ GREAT FOOD, GREAT LOCATION: As well as wine and other refreshments, the Riverland Wine & Food Weekend gives visitors the chance to indulge in great meals and tasty treats in an idyllic setting on the riverfront.

Cars in the news

Vintage & veteran vehicles a highlight of Loxton Show

Motor homes to converge on Lyrup Oval A CONVOY of motor homes will be in the region from October 28-30 when Riverland Motorhome Club members from around the state meet in Lyrup for their annual gathering. With over 20 motor homes confirmed for the visit, the AGM at the Lyrup Oval, is set to be enjoyable and relaxing. Club member Margaret Smith said the motor home enthusiasts love the Riverland atmosphere. “They really enjoy the Lyrup area, the river,� Mrs Smith said. “You just sit around, relax or go for a walk or play cards, it’s just a relaxing weekend.� Members hail from all over the state. “They come from not just the Riverland, some people are from Clare, Adelaide, Pinnaroo, they come from quite an area,� Mrs Smith said. “They make it a very long weekend.� Mrs Smith said the AGM benefits the region’s business’ foot traffic. “They go for walks and support the shops, it’s good to have that for the town,� she said. “The relaxation and friendship that we get (is also nice).�

Highlights of the day included an exhibition of the Honda Goldwing Bikes. However, locals and visitors gathered too to cheer on Wild Stylz hairdresser Tania Hartmann as she sacrificed her locks to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation. Donations can still be made at Wild Stylz in Barmera. The next Barmera Main Street Market will be held on Sunday, November 6 when the Riverland Orchid Society will be in the middle Gazebo with plant sales and potting demonstrations.

Plenty of laughs to fund Loxton Hospital update By CALLUM TRIFONOFF THEREâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;LL be plenty of laughs to be had in Loxton later this month when Rod â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Old Fellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Gregory will showcase the comedic skills that won him the heart of a nation. The Old Fella, who came to fame on TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Got Talent, will appear at the Loxton Hospital Complexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aged Care Facility on October 22 in an appearance described as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fantastic coupâ&#x20AC;? by presiding member of the Loxton and District Health Advisory Council Sally Goode. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty terrific that someone like him who has a high profile will be appearing,â&#x20AC;? Mrs Goode said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Got Talent but he got all the publicity he deserved.â&#x20AC;? Mrs Goode is confident The Old Fellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance will help raise the necessary funds to revitalise the hospital premises. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The aged care facility hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

been painted for a very long time,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Painting hospital premises isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very high on state health priorities as you can imagine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fundraising to be able to paint out the whole place and make it look nice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) for the comforts of our senior citizens and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at all sorts of things for them.â&#x20AC;? Mrs Goode said the opportunity to get The Old Fella to perform came about by â&#x20AC;&#x153;someone who knew someone elseâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Old Fella himself was only too willing to come,â&#x20AC;? she said. The Old Fella will be the only performer at the fundraiser with many locals on board to help with the night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite a lot of comedy as well as musical entertainment,â&#x20AC;? Mrs Goode said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Old Fellaâ&#x20AC;? Residential Aged Care Fundraiser commences at 7.30pm with tickets costing $50.

Are follow-up sporting games released too early? EVERY year since 1994, a FIFA soccer video game has been released but is releasing one every year (FIFA 11, FIFA 12 etc) the best idea? Now, I know no-one has forced me to buy the newly released FIFA 12 but it seems time flies so quickly between one game and another. Every year there is a new feature or features added to the game and every year there are improved graphics which, at the time, I think are the best and make me want to play it non-stop. This doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just go for FIFA either. Madden NFL (gridiron) and NHL (ice hockey) games are also in the same boat. Maybe releasing a follow-up biennially would be a good solution. The success of AFL Live, which didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a predecessor for four years, shows that an extra year improving the game could make it even better.

Movie of the week The Beach Boys: An American Family â&#x20AC;&#x153;AS a band, they rose to stardom. As a family, they fell from grace.â&#x20AC;? The tagline of this movie sums up the life and times of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Beach Boys. Detailing their early success with their surf songs and mid-1960s battle with drugs and alcohol, if you are a Beach Boys fan, you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to miss it. Available on Youtube.

â&#x2013; LOTS OF LAUGHS: Rod â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Old Fellaâ&#x20AC;? Gregory, pictured at right, will be showcasing his comedic skills straight from Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Got Talent at the Loxton Hospital Complexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aged Care Facility fundraiser on October 22.

CD of the week (Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Story) Morning Glory - Oasis

Event to welcome doctors THE Riverlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 13 new doctors will be formally welcomed at a community event at Barmera Playspace on Saturday, October 22. The event, from 2-4pm, will feature entertainment by local performers including Rosie Clark dancers, the Riverland Youth Theatre, Belly Dancers & Berri Gymnastics. Those turning up early will also get freebies of local produce and goodie bags. The CEO of the Riverland Division of General Practice, Bron Marie, is encouraging the community to go along and wel-

come not only the 13 new doctors, but also their families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a great opportunity to make their families feel welcome, which is essential if we hope to keep these GPs in the region,â&#x20AC;? Ms Marie said. The appointment of the large international contingent of medical graduates is expected to ease the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medical shortage. For more information about the event contact the Riverland Division of General Practice on 8582 3823.

THERE is no arguing this is one of the alltime great albums. I feel it is so good that every track on the CD (except the two weird â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Untitledâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; songs that run for just over 30 seconds) has a place on my iPod. With such classics as Wonderwall, Morning Glory and my favourite Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Look Back in Anger, it is not hard to see why this album shot straight to number one.

Book of the week Bread - Carla Lane

â&#x2013; STAGE STARS: Scarlett (Amber Secomb) and Zak Teflon (Jesse Richardson) take a break from the rehearsal schedule as main characters in â&#x20AC;&#x153;High School Spooficalâ&#x20AC;?.

School spoof takes to stage PREPARE for plenty of laughs and some great entertainment as the Lameroo Regional Community School lifts the curtain on its latest production. High School Spoof-ical parodies the Disney world of perfect teenagers where real world problems such as pimples and puberty are seemingly non-existent. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an American school full of every clique imaginable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; jocks, cheerleaders, eggheads, emos, homies and even redneck yokels â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the occasional adult themes and language. Over 70 students take to the stage in the largest cast for the Year 6-12 production. Performances will be held on Wednesday, October 19 at 7.30pm and on Thursday, October 20 at 11am and 7.30pm at the Lameroo Memorial Hall. Tickets are available from the school.

THIS book, which also had a TV series of the same name, portrays the Boswell family who live in Liverpool, England during hard-times in the 1980s. The family is strong, united and lives with their single mother (despite all being in their 20s and 30s). The book is a real look at times when living in Liverpool meant the only way to make a living was buying, selling and claiming money from Social Services.

Game of the week FIFA 12 - Xbox 360 FIFA 11 was one game I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to get last year but when FIFA 12 came around, I almost wanted to wait for a bit (probably because FIFA 11 was so good). However, I decided to make the purchase and since then, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been an almighty, yet enjoyable battle to start winning consistently. The defending is harder, as is the shooting but one thing I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complain about is the gameplay. Man, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing. The boys at FIFA just keep going one better.

HE Barmera Sheep Dog Trials are set to draw a crowd this weekend as the event celebrates its 30th consecutive year. Running over three days, the event is expected to attract spectators and competitions from throughout the state and even over the border, according to the organiser, Bob Clark. “Competitors are coming from all over the place,” Mr Clark said. “We’ve got some from NSW, Victoria and Western Australia.” The trials are renowned nationwide in working dog circles. “In the trialling fraternity, everyone knows Barmera,” Mr Clark explained. “Anyone who goes to a dog trial in Barmera, someone else will have been there or know about it. “Some people have said it’s the best in the country and others have said it’s right up there.” According to Mr Clark, it’s one of the best run sheep trials in Australia, due mostly to the involvement of Glossop High School students who run the scoreboard, manage the arena and yard the sheep. “The children do a great job. They do everything other than compete,” Mr Clark said. “They man their posts well, it runs smoothly. “A lot of trials they (competitors) go to, they have to help out with the jobs themselves. Here they can come and relax and everything runs smoothly.” The trials will see dogs try, in 15 minutes, to move three sheep through an obstacle. The aim is to lose as few points as possible. Points are deducted for the sheep failing to complete the obstacles or when they move off

Finalists will be paraded around the oval at lunchtime on Sunday and organisers are seeking the public’s help in providing some utes for the parade.

The trials are about more than the dogs and the egos of the handlers. “We provide entertainment for the community as well.” For the kids there’ll be a petting zoo again which always proves popular.

Golf pro boosts Legacy day By CALLUM TRIFONOFF THE Renmark Legacy Club has secured the help of golf professional Jamie Clutterham for its annual major fundraiser, the Legacy Golf Day, to be held this Sunday. Secretary/treasurer David Turnbull said the club is lucky to have a professional golfer of Clutterham’s quality on board. “Like our recent badge day, the golf day is a very good day of raising money (for the club),” Mr Turnbull said. “It’s our major fundraiser for the year ... and having someone like Jamie Clutterham on board helping out is fantastic.” The four-player ambrose event has been running for around 40 years and has always been successful. Mr Turnbull is one of the club’s members who would love to see it keep growing. “We’re trying to develop it into a bigger event,” he said. “We’re getting teams from Adelaide this year and hopefully it’s going to increase as time goes on.” The Legacy Club looks after widows and families of ex-servicemen, which is all the more reason for Riverlanders

to attend the event, according to Mr Turnbull. “So Legacy can continue to assist the widows and families of our ex-diggers,” he said. “That’s really the main

reason to come along and support as well as having a heck of a good day.” The Legacy Golf Day is fully catered and will commence at 9am at a $20 entry fee.

Cricket merger mooted A THREE-WAY team merger has been mooted in a bid to bolster the waning A grade ranks of the Monash Cricket Club. Although the finer points are still being worked out in readiness for the 2011-12 Riverland Turf Cricket season, an alliance involving players from Monash and B grade players from Barmera Hotel and Cobdogla is being considered. Monash, having featured in the association’s A grade competition for more than 15 years, has been suffering severe player losses in the past four

REPORT BY R

C CALLUM TTRIFONOFF years. Monash also fields teams in the B-grade, under 16 and under 14 competitions. Monash president Peter Roberts said Barmera Hotel has already shown interest in the proposed merger while he admits the club is still working closely with Cobdogla. “We are hoping we will have a team, it’ll be a young one with

a couple of older players,” Mr Roberts said. “In the last four years, we’ve had probably 25 to 30 players that have left the club, so we’ve basically lost three cricket teams. “We’ve lost too many teams, if we lose anymore it’ll be devastating.” Despite Mr Roberts admitting a merger could happen, it does not necessarily spell the end for Barmera Hotel and Cobdogla as B grade. “We may even be looking at when Cobby and Barmera have the bye in the B grade, we might see if some of the young

guys want to play A grade for Monash just to get a taste,” he said. “The competition needs to get around it and make sure we continue in the A grade.”

‘...we’ve had probably 25-30 players that have left the club, so we’ve basically lost three cricket teams.”

Wet weather cancels bowls By CALLUM TRIFONOFF RECENT bowls games around the region have been cancelled due to weather, leaving the men’s competition with an abandoned round. With the Riverland Men’s Bowling Association only playing 18 rounds during a season, washed-out venues recently meant one less series of games would be played for the year. Association secretary Ian Kubank said grass and synthetic bowling greens around the Riverland had been in unplayable condition recently. “In the case of grass greens, they were too wet and therefore couldn’t be played on,” Mr Kubank said. “In the case of synthetics because of different areas and different rainfall, they formed pools of water on the green and it takes a fair time to drain away.” It is not the only weather problem the association is likely

Accolades flow for local football stars

to face this season, heat also plays a part too. “It’s either too hot in summertime,” Mr Kubank said. However, Mr Kubank maintained if the association was to face similar problems in the finals, it would work a way around it. “We’ve got a spare day at the end of the finals where there’s nothing played (the week after the grand final),” he said. “So if there were any cases where a semi-final was washed out, they would be transferred to the Sunday, the following day. “If they were washed out, they’d be transferred to the next week. “Now if that got washed out for any reason, then we’d probably have to look at playing during the week.” The Riverland Women’s Bowling Association has also dealt with similar problems in recent weeks. However, secretary Kath Mader said if any game was to

be postponed, a designated day in October would be used as a “catch-up day”. “We don’t like missing out on a game, the ladies simply want to play a game,” Mrs Mader said. “If we’ve played 15 (ends), that constitutes a game, even though it’s generally 20. “If a game has started and say they’ve only played five ends, they would have to be played within a fortnight.

THERE have been many Riverlanders who have achieved great things in big competitions this year but few have been as outstanding as two former footballers. For the second time in his eight-year Australian Football League career, ex-BarmeraMonash sensation Sam Fisher won his second Trevor Barker Award with St Kilda as the best Saints player of the year. F i s h e r starred in a St Kilda team that battled problems on and ■ BEST AND FAIREST: off the field but redeemed itself Barmera-Monash old boy to make the Sam Fisher capped off a top eight before stellar year with St Kilda bowing out to in the AFL by winning its Sydney in the best and fairest honour, the Trevor Barker Award. elimination finals. The defender gathered 486 possessions, took 153 marks and kicked two goals and four behinds and starred in the Saints’ round eight loss to Hawthorn (31 possessions). The 29-year-old polled 557 votes in the Trevor Barker Award to beat favourite Nick Dal Santo by three. In an amazing outcome, Fisher won the club’s top award, despite polling just one vote in the AFL’s best and fairest, the Brownlow Medal. It was also a season to remember for former Loxton North champion Scott Lewis who completed a perfect season in the South Australian National Football League by winning the premiership with Woodville-West Torrens. The victory means Lewis has now won SANFL premierships at under 17, under 19 (West Adelaide), reserves (Glenelg) and league level. The Eagles won in a three-point thriller against the champion team of the past 12 years Central District and Lewis contributed to the victory. The dreadlocked on-baller racked up 16 possessions and kicked one goal as his team won its first premiership since 2006 which, ironically was against the Bulldogs as well.

“If our games on Wednesday were not played, they would have to be played on our catch up which is Friday the 21st of this month.” Mrs Mader said while weather is generally not a major burden on the association, it can leave players frustrated. “There’s nothing worse than organising a game then deciding you can’t play because of the weather,” she said.

Crazy Heart in Adelaide Cup final Only SA greyhound to make event ■ CRAZY Heart, owned and trained by Bruce Lellmann at Renmark, is South Australia’s only runner in the 40th annual Adelaide Cup final at Greyhound Racing SA headquarters Angle Park tonight. As usual the attraction of the $107,500 prize money resulted in raiders from interstate dominating the seven 515 metre heats conducted a week ago at the venue. Two other SA dogs, trained at the Murray family kennels at Lewiston and Two Wells, Kalden Aurora and Kalden Komoto ran second and third in their heats to narrowly miss a start in tonight’s race. Others to qualify for the final were three greyhounds prepared by veteran leading Victorian trainer Graeme Bate, Radley Bale, Allen Hertz and Allen Harper, Clyde’s Angel (Kel Greenough), Weekend Rush (Justin Illman), Cape Hawke (Jamie Ennis), Mepunga Nicky (Jeff Britton) with reserves another Bate dog Allen Lawson and Cold Fusion (Neil Falls). Apart from NSW’s Cold Fusion all are from Victoria. Prior to the heats Radley Bale, Cape Hawke, Mepunga Nicky, Allen Harper and Allen Hertz were rated amongst the main chances to grab the significant prize money while Crazy Heart was amongst those ‘at

40 to 1 and over’. Cape Hawke (29.33 seconds) recorded the fastest heat time, followed by Allen Harper (29.47), Radley Bale (29.51), Mepunga Nicky (29.55) and Allen Hertz (29.56) while Crazy Heart, in winning its heat, ran the slowest time of 30.11 after starting at $12. Nevertheless experienced greyhound follower Waikerie’s Jim Bannister was impressed by the upset win by the Lellmann youngster. Crazy Heart is another Black Enforcer/Barcrusher product and actually won her first maiden race at Barmera. She was bred by local stalwart Don Gordon who had the Lellmann owned brood bitch Barcrusher on loan at the time. “It led early in its heat,” Bannister said, “but was then headed before digging deep to score a fighting win by three quarters of a length.” Crazy Heart has drawn box one in the final and talking to Bruce Lellmann he acknowledged that his small dog has the job in front of her but could not fault how tenacious and eager she was towards her racing. “She beat some pretty useful types in her heat in Kilty Lad ($1.80) and Yowyeh ($2.80),” he said. “I would have perhaps preferred an outside box for the final but if we

can get her to run straight you never know.” With this race one of the biggest on the SA Greyhound calendar and the Riverland having a starter I invited Jim Bannister to dig into his proven bag of ‘ratings’ tricks to give us a prediction. Firstly he had a message for Lellmann. “I’ll have everything crossed for you mate because it could represent a ten pin bowling alley on that first corner,” he said. Jim goes for lightly raced youngster Cape Hawke, with tons of early speed, to win the event out of the seven box with the most experienced runner Radley Bale (81 starts, 32 wins, stake money $375,900) the biggest threat out of a suitable box two and Allen Hertz (if it has luck from box five), and Mepunga Nicky from a handy box eight also amongst the main chances. Bruce obviously revelled in the atmosphere of the Adelaide Cup scene. “The excitement, the crowd, the noise,” he said. He has more of it tonight and one senses the veteran greyhound man still has the passion to go on to bigger things than even an Adelaide Cup.

Baseball’s first Where are they now? pitch of new Brooke Rischbieth aces season tomorrow ■ IT was a mixed bag for our local team at the SA Country Baseball championships at Glenelg North over the recent long weekend. In the end an undermanned Riverland side finished fourth overall, winning three of their matches against Gawler, Port Pirie and Whyalla by comfortable margins. However, they also suffered comprehensive defeats at the hands of Broken Hill, Sunraysia and Mount Gambier in the other three. The late withdrawal of players did not help the Riverland side’s cause as it reduced the squad for the event to just 12 when a number like 18 would have been preferable. As has been the case in a number of previous tournaments of this type, the Riverland contingent lacked depth on the mound with coach Nick Kuhn and Dave Grenfell the only regular pitchers in the group. Kuhn gave his all, however, and, along with Nick Carroll was chosen in the All Stars Team at the end of the tournament. Phil Goldspink was named the Riverland`s Most Valuable Player. Sunraysia, one of the zones coming out of a winter season, won the title for the fifth year in a row. Locally the 2011-12 season commences tomorrow night with Berri Warriors endeavouring to break into record breaking A grade premiership territory currently occupied by Renmark.

However a club spokesman believes that winning the title this season may be extremely tough with Barmera Lakers, Renmark Angels and Loxton Wildcats all likely to improve. “With some clubs struggling for numbers,” he said, “we have opened up the import rule so that instead of two only being allowed on the park at the one time that can now be four.” As a result of this change it seems that Barmera will increase the number of their imports from Mildura. Berri, meanwhile, will keep pretty much the same team including their Mildura players from last year while they will add Gary Brinkworth, an experienced player from Glenelg. Loxton has improved their player depth and in fact will have a B grade team in 201112 while they will be further strengthened by the return of one of their former juniors in Steve Dack. Dack played for junior SA teams and was also a pitcher for a premiership team in Mount Gambier last season. An experienced authority on the game who saw him in action at a recent practice said, “He is going to be difficult to hit.”. Renmark also welcomes an interesting newcomer in former Adelaide softballer James Bennett. The B grade composition involves the four A grade clubs plus Lyrup and is also expected to be keenly contested.

junior players in Mexico

■ FORMER Cobdogla junior tennis player Brooke Rischbieth, 16, lives with her supportive family in Adelaide. Soon after another young product of the same club, Luke Saville, won the 2011 Wimbledon junior boys` singles title, Brooke has just been part of a three-strong Australian team that took out the Junior Federation Cup in San Luis Portosi, Mexico. Her team mates were 2011 Wimbledon girls` singles champion Queensland`s Ashleigh Barty and Victoria`s Belinda Woolcock. The trio started their cup campaign in the qualifying tournament in India in late April and, seeded fourth, defeated the host nation, then Sri Lanka and Thailand in their pool, followed by Kasakhstan and Chinese Taipai in the quarter and semi finals. All without dropping a set. That had already qualified Australia for the 16-country major event in Mexico but they still powered on to win the Indian tournament by defeating Japan in a tough contest with Ashleigh and Belinda both winning their singles

in her one doubles outing with Belinda against Great Britain, won 6-3 6-2.

Riverland in Foundation Cup

■ MEXICAN WIN: Former Cobdogla tennis junior Brooke Rischbieth continues to make a name in the sport, being part of Australia’s succssful team that took out the Junior Federation Cup in Mexico. in three sets. For Brooke`s part, she played in all of the doubles matches that were contested and shared a perfect record to all but guarantee herself a trip to Mexico. She then spent about a week at home before jetting off to America with a small group for a hectic practice and playing tour before it was back to Australia for commitments in Queensland and then away again in Fiji. Finally however she rejoined her Federation Cup team mates and headed for an official training camp in Palm Springs,

California, at the world famous Mission Hills Tennis Centre en route to Mexico. There, seeded top, Australia won their three round robin games in Pool A against Argentina 3-0, Great Britain 3-0 and Mexico 2-1 before taking out the finals 2-1 against the Czech Republic and 2-0 over Canada.That led Ashleigh Barty to say “it is phenomenal and the Junior Fed Cup is back in the country it belongs”. Barty and Woolcock shared most of the action during the tournament but Brooke was praised for her back-up support and,

While on junior tennis, coach Mike Horsman and his Riverland side are back from playing in the week-long teams and individual events of the sixzone under 13 be active Foundation Cup competition in Port Lincoln. Mike is full of praise for the efforts of Alicia Shotton, Tianne Adamczyk, Jamie Jaensch and Shenae Rucioch who finished fourth in the girls` teams event and Steve Burton, Brodie Kollmann, Murray Burton and William Koskinas, third in boys, against some tough opposition over their fivegame round robins. In the individual events Alicia, Tianne, Brodie and William all reached their quarter finals. Word has it however that the youngsters were not all that strong in tackling the seafood extravaganza presented by the cup host city. However, the coach reportedly did not let the side down.

Hunchee Run final race of season for Riverland Dinghy Club

Bottleneck in race for dinghy honour ■ WHO will be crowned the Riverland Dinghy Club`s 2011 champion when the end of the Paul Hutchins Loan Centre series presentation dinner is held at the Renmark Club after the final race? This is a million dollar question. The 30hp Sports Class leader board is an absolute bottle neck. Jason Gordon still holds the lead, albeit by only one point, as he prepares his boat for the second running of the Hunchee Run on Saturday, October 29. This time trial event takes in about 70kms of the Renmark creek system and offers splendid opportunities

for spectators to view the action from either the Renmark Club riverfront or at Ral Ral or Hunchee creeks via Calperum Station. The last race held was, round four, the new YMF Enduro, saw Linton Price and Colin Gordon fight their way back into title contention after that costly spill earlier in the series. They won the event in a thrilling finish from Gordon and his stand in swinger Hayden Schepel by only 35 seconds. Schepel was a replacement for Gordon`s regular crew Ben Pobke who was out with injury.

Matt Thur and Reece Glazbrook were a couple of minutes further back in third position. As a result with only one round remaining, Jason Gordon leads the points table on 39, followed by Brent Martin and Aiden Kenyon 38, Price 37, Kyle Gregurke and Tom Azzapardi 29. Martin and Kenyon won the 30HP Sports Rookies section in the YMF Enduro. The battle for the championship is not only limited to the 30hp Sports boats. In 30hp Super Standards Shane Palat and Colby

Townsend won the Enduro by only 17 seconds from Ben Pearce and Ryleigh Pfitzner and Pearce now leads Palat narrowly, 33 to 30 on the points table. Tyson Roe and David Strongman are well clear in 30HP Standard class after a YMF victory while Steven Petschel/Sam Mellington lead in 300cc Modified, Matt Schwartzkopff`s boat in 25HP Standard and Aaron and Cameron Richards in 15HP Standard. Hunt yourself along to the Hunchee Run if it`s action you want as the bottle neck may be about to be uncorked.

Ski action set Top Royal showing for Alisha to return to our waterways ■ ACTION will return to the Berri Ski Club in the form of the 2011 ‘Berri 90’ on Saturday and Sunday, October 29 and 30. The high river levels and concerns surrounding the safety of boats and skiers has meant this enterprising club, established way back in January 1960, has been unusually quiet in recent times. But it will be far from quiet at this year’s SA Berri 90 Ski Race at Martin’s Bend. “We will have four world champions competing,” said Chris Philp. “We have registered something like 52 boats pulling 129 skiers,” he added. The ‘Berri 90’ is a listed Berri Centenary event and the town will be represented by a local team ‘Hit It’ who will compete in the 8 Litre Expert class. In 2010 at Berri the team, comprising drivers Chris and Damien Philp, observer Saxton Brown and with Echuca`s Cameron Foster skiing, finished third in 8 Litre and fourth in Unlimited Social class. Foster will be replaced this time by two interstate skiers who recently combined to finish second in Formula 2 in the Hawkesbury 120, Mason Vaughan and Mitchell Williams. Also returning this year will be regular WA visitors True Blue who were seen in Berri a few weeks ago working on the boat and equipment they store here permanently as a base for their regular appearances in big Eastern State events. Sydney`s Chris Stout, who recently took out the Super Class title at the 17th World Water Ski championships at Queensland`s Moreton Bay

will ski behind one of Noel Griffin`s boats Blazen (a World champion boat) as will former multi F2 World champion Steve Robertson. Griffin will bring a second boat Burnn. Another to bring two boats, Hell Bent and Hell Raiser, will be Dandenong`s Mark Cranny, who towed former world champion Peter Procter to second place behind Stout in Moreton Bay. Jason Walmsley will also appear as a former World champion. The Berri 90 course will pass in front of the town with Super class reaching speeds in excess of 200kph. Also on the agenda for this summer is the return to the Berri riverfront of the Berri Resort Hotel Speedboat Spectacular on January 28 and 29. Two full days of racing will culminate in the Australian Open Unlimited Championships for inboards and outboards. There will be 15 races on Saturday and 22 on Sunday involving locals, interstaters right down to junior classes. Program highlights will include the Tony Patty Memorial Race and the Les Schrapel Memorial introduced in honour of the respected Berri speedboat identity. Unique displays out on the water, entertainment for all ages, fabulous views of the complete course and full catering will make this a real family day. Tickets for adults, children, family will be available at the gates. And there’s more. Over 200 boats are expected to pull some of the world’s best skiers at the 2012 Australian Water Ski Championships at Barmera’s Lake Bonney.

■ A KEEN interest in horses had young Loxton High School student Alisha Rudiger constantly asking Vicki Oliver of the Riverland Riding Academy at Loxton whether she would be prepared to teach her to ride. Vicki`s response was that lessons could start when a suitable horse became available and some eighteen months ago all that fell into place; with outstanding results. In fact Alisha,15, has already progressed under her instructor and mentor, Vicki, so quickly that she won a prestigious award in August at the 2011 Royal Adelaide Show. Riding her own horse ‘Ballet’, purchased nine months ago, Alisha took out the Helen Junge Memorial Perpetual award. Young dressage riders 12-17 years age are eligible to enter this Novice test and many past winners of the coveted trophy, an inscribed riding whip provided by the Dressage Club of SA, have gone on to outstanding careers not only in dressage but in show horse or eventing as well. A rider can only win this award once.

The volume of events on the centre arena at Wayville Showgrounds during the actual show sees this Helen Junge and some other competitions held prior to the main program commencing but that does not detract from the dreams that are realised by just getting a chance to ride on the historic arena. But to also win a coveted trophy (introduced by Tom Roberts, an author of commonsense horse management books and a much decorated member of the Australian Armed Forces, in the late 1960s in memory of one of his young students who was tragically killed in a fall from a horse), is a feather in the cap of Alisha, her supportive family and Vicki Oliver. ‘Ballet’ is a Chalani Australian Stock Horse, a breed respected for their temperament and rideability so Alisha has made a sound choice. But her choice of the Riverland Riding Academy`s Vicki Oliver to guide her and to help launch her career is also very wise indeed. Alisha is coached twice per week but in addition trains regularly with ‘Ballet’ by herself.

Vicki has been teaching people to ride horses for some 30 years but only part time up until she went into business fulltime two years ago. Like in the case of her young pupil Alisha, her decision to do so has also created a wonderful success story. Vicki currently instructs up to 50 pupils from across country SA, Adelaide and from Victoria, amongst them a member of the Victorian Young Talent squad. She conducts residential schools with the size of her property and dwelling providing scope to accommodate visitors. It is indeed a fulltime job as Vicki, apart from giving the instruction and lessons at home at her academy, is also constantly travelling far and wide to accompany students on the horse competition circuit. One of those students, Alisha Rudiger, is obviously already reaping the rewards of putting her love of horses and determination to ride them successfully in the care of an instructor and mentor who shares those very same ideals.

It was first won in 1961 by cricket and golf champion Kevin Harrington and continued up to 1971 before going into recess until 1975-76. Outstanding among the winners is former Australian lawn bowler and recent Bowls SA Hall of Fame inductee Audrey Hefford who won the award on five occasions between 1970 and 1989-90. The Junior Sports Star award was introduced in 1976-77 and won by another cricketer-footballer Kevin Bennett. The 34 winners of this award form an amazing list and there would not be many regions in country Australia that could boast so many juniors who

Anne-Marie Knight (golf), Troy Lehmann , Mark Riccuito, (football), Luke Prokopec (baseball), Grant Schubert (hockey), Sophie Edington, Hayden Stoeckel (swimming) to name a few. The list of recipients also has another feature. In its early years Robert

Knight (1982-83), Bronwyn Ackland (1983-84), Natalie Gregoric (198485) and Kylie Good (1989-90, 199091) won it for athletics – the only juniors from the sport to do so. That is a perfect example of how one person with determination and passion towards a sport can inspire others to make it a success. I am referring to the late John Ormsby and it is fitting that the Coach of the Year award launched in 200304 and won by Beth Hueppauff carries his name. The Contribution to Sport category also goes back 32 presentations to 1979 when it was taken out by netball stalwart Margaret Lambert. So who will the winners of these awards be for 2010-11? The Sportsperson of the Year judges are in fact looking at a 15-month period so that the nominations are taken up to the end of a sporting season in future. The judging period 1st July 2010 to 30th September 2011 will become 1st October to 30th September in future years. The awards have recognised our best so it is important that we give our outstanding performers every chance by lodging nominations by the deadline – a week from tomorrow.

Goodes bound for London Games By CALLUM TRIFONOFF LOXTON boxing coach Phillip Goodes has won a berth at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. It’s not the first time Goodes has been a section manager for the Australian national boxing team. He held the same position at the 2008 summer Olympic Games in Beijing and the 2010 Commonwealth Games. “Just getting one Olympics is a pretty good feeling but to get a follow up is pretty outstanding,” he said. “Some of the best highlights of my career have been learning, and meeting people and just understanding how much work goes on behind the scenes in putting together such a big sporting event.” Goodes will also be involved

in the inaugural women’s boxing event which Australia is also set to take part in. “They’ve introduced three women’s weight categories,” he said. “It’s pretty dynamic and big for female boxing. “Of course, we still have to qualify our teams but we expect we will definitely qualify.” If there is one thing Goodes relishes from the thrill of being part of the Olympic side is the pressure of being a section manager. “A manager’s role is to support the team, keep them reassured and help them out wherever they go,” he said. “There’s a lot of pressure on your shoulders but it’s something that I thrive on. “It’s hard work, I think you live on three or four hours’ sleep

a day (but) I wouldn’t have done it again if I didn’t think it was worthwhile.” Goodes will start preparations for the Olympics in November. “I’m heading over in November for a test event just to have a look at the venues,” he said. “(I’ll be looking at) Olympic Village and seeing how it’s all progressing.” Prior to the Games, Goodes hopes to attend several management development workshops run by the Australian Olympic Committee in Sydney. ■ OLYMPIC BOUND: Loxton boxing coach is thrilled to be chosen to attend an Olympic Games event to support the Australian team as a section manager.
