MELON FUNDING BOOST REPORT BY

BRAD PERRY A WAIKERIE fruit and vegetable company will proceed with a $1 million project to market an alternative range of seedless watermelons. It was announced yesterday that almost $500,000 of the $20 million Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund will contribute to local business Red Earth Farm’s bid to produce and

market a range of red armada watermelons. The Waikerie company, which has been operating for two years, will construct a 20 megalitre dam and water feed system to irrigate 80 hectares and produce around 5000 tonnes of seedless watermelons. A Red Earth Farms spokesman said the project will create new jobs in the region. “While we expect the project will create a number of additional new jobs, it will also generate development opportunities for our current staff,� the spokesman said. “Once the infrastructure is in place and

operational, we anticipate a 60 per cent increase in production through exports to national retail and wholesale fruit markets.� Regional Development Minister Gail Gago said the grant will make Red Earth Farms the only consistent supplier of seedless watermelons in South Australia. “The project will help diversify food production in the region and further showcase the Riverland as a national leader in innovative fresh produce,� Minsiter Gago said. “The grant money will help establish infrastructure and equipment to produce,

process, pack and market the seedless red armada watermelons.� The $1.07 million project is due for completion in August 2012. The announcement comes after Regional Development Australia Murraylands and Riverland chief executive officer Brenton Lewis told the Murray Darling Association Region 5 Committee on Monday that a number of promising applications to the Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund have been submitted recently.. ■ Continued Page 5

Tourism agenda HAVING just returned from a trip on the Great Ocean Road, I brought back many interesting tourism ideas. Seeing how tourism is approached in other regional communities interstate was a real eye opener. Many of the interstate towns have a strong focus on history and we do too, to a certain degree. Why not have a museum based on our sporting greats? Why not put a replica boat on Lake Bonney to signify the history of the Blue Bird run? What I learnt is that there is plenty of room for improvement when promoting our history to attract tourists.

Riverland winegrape demand set to grow in coming vintage as...

Wineries discuss long term contracts By BRAD PERRY TALK is rife that major Riverland wineries are being offered five year contracts as the region prepares itself for increased demand for winegrapes. Riverland Winegrape Growers’ Association chief executive Chris Byrne confirmed he too has heard rumours of long contract offers. He said there is already an evident increase in demand for local winegrapes ahead of this year’s vintage. “I don’t have anything in writing to say there are five year contracts on offer but there is definitely an increase in demand for winegrapes,� he said. “The increased demand would suggest that major buyers around the world are realising the product they need from the Riverland is no longer in oversupply.� Mr Byrne said growers and wineries should be wary about signing long term contracts. “You need to have flexibility in your contract so there is a benefit for both parties, otherwise the contract will never work,� he said.

“A long term contract that doesn’t have a reasonable provision for a fair price to be paid every year throughout that contract might look attractive on the face of it. “But if the contract doesn’t provide, for you as the grower, to make a reasonable income, then it’s not a sound contract by any means and it is one we would urge growers

something up around 400,000 (tonnes). “Because of the increased demand for our grapes, we hope to see an improvement in price.� With the winegrape industry also suffering from oversupply in previous years, Mr Byrne said around 20 per cent of Riverland growers have exited, creating the right balance.

We are now ready for...a very sustained period of reasonable prices. not to sign.� After a disease ridden season for many growers during the last vintage, Mr Byrne said the Riverland wine industry appears to embarking on a promising period. “Those who normally buy grapes in the region have been looking to secure supplies for the coming vintage in 2012, so that is very positive for us,� he said. “It looks as though, if we have reasonable growing conditions, we might increase our yield again this year from 382,000 tonnes to maybe

“We’ve removed almost 20 per cent of our total plantings in the past three years and that has certainly helped us to return to a more balanced position and again, the increased demand from all of the buyers in this region for this forthcoming vintage would suggest that we’ve got that balance about right,� he said. “If the major wineries are getting orders from their big customers, then that suggests that they are no longer able to buy cheap wine out of the bulk wine market.

“They have to, again, start buying grapes that will create a wine supply to their clients in the coming say 12 to 18 months and two year period.� Twelve months ago the situation for the local industry was looking bleak but the turn around has been extremely positive, according to Mr Byrne. “If we go back 12 months we were just coming into an extremely difficult period,� he said. “That caused growers to have to, as it were, spend a fair bit more money to grow their crop because they had to incur a lot more cost in terms of protecting the crops for harvest. “We had a moderate increase in price last year and a moderate increase in yield, so now that we’ve got this increase in demand coming through in the form of wineries requiring more supply for this year, it would suggest that we’ve gone through the hard yards of structural adjustment. “We are now ready for, what we hope is, a very sustained period of reasonable prices for the fruit that we grow in the Riverland.�

New River Doc’s CEO wants to raise profile By BRAD PERRY NEWLY appointed River Doc’s ED chief executive officer Eve Rogers believes the not-for-profit organisation must increase its profile in the community as many Riverlanders are unaware of the services it provides. Mrs Rogers, who took over from Lyn Gill last month, said many people are unaware of the services provided by the private organisation, such as an after hours GP clinic. River Doc’s ED, which operates from the emergency department at the Riverland Regional Hospital in Berri, has had a busy first year serving the people of the Riverland since its inception. “I don’t think it has that much of a profile in the community at the moment, so it

actually needs to be right out there so people know that it’s here,� Mrs Rogers said. “People know there is an emergency department because people presume that’s where they will go when they go in an ambulance but we do actually provide other services in regards to a GP clinic after hours.� Working in the medical profession is new to Mrs Rogers, who was previously employed at TAFE SA’s Berri campus. “I’m actually really enjoying the new challenge of being here,� she said. “Going into the future I am looking forward to developing this company and actually improving its profile within the community.� Spreading the word about what River Doc’s ED provides

is vital for the community, according to Mrs Rogers. “It is very important, not only for us in regards to maintaining the business but it’s also important to the community because it actually does provide an extra service that they don’t even know is here at the moment,� she said. “People do object to paying that gap fee but it is very important that they actually do that because we are not making any profit on it, it is actually just funding to keep that service going.� Once the upgrade of the Riverland Regional Hospital is complete, River Doc’s ED will be relocated into the new buildings, giving it the opportunity to expand its facilities and provide more ■ CHALLENGE: River Doc’s ED chief executive officer Eve Rogers is hoping to continue to promote the emergency beds and a larger organisation’s services in her new role. waiting room.

Transport services push By BRAD PERRY RIVERLAND councils and local government are putting increased pressure on the State Government to increase community transport services in the region. While it is understood State Government support for the proposed integration of the Riverland Community Passenger Network and the Murray Mallee Community Passenger Network Schemes is waning, those involved are still keen to push forward with plans to increase transport services in the region. By combining the two community services, it would allow the use of agency managed government vehicles to provide transport for the

disadvantaged. Murray and Mallee Local Government Association president Leon Stasinowsky said a lack of funding means the community transport service is unable to expand to meet demand. “As it is now, there is a transport system that goes sometime in the morning and then it is later in the afternoon when they come back,” he said. “We would like something that gives our residents, who haven’t got licences or are too old to drive or aren’t able, to at least be able to go to especially regional health and government offices at Berri. “If they can’t get to them it makes it pretty hard and they are

relying on other family members or people to take them.” Mr Stasinowsky said the current Riverland medical bus services are highly patronised and need to

out what the need is, where the transport is needed most, what towns need transport going from a to b to c and at what times.” While he understands funding

looked after here in the Riverland and the region as much as what the city people are.” Riverland Community Transport Committee member Mark Ward said building on and improving current transport options in the region is vital for the future. “If we want to make our region better and grow, then we’ve got to have transport,” he said. “I know (the State Government) answer will be they’ve got no money but at the end of the day, we’ve really got to start putting it to them and if you are going to cut back on all these facilities in our regional towns, then you have got to start looking at how we are going to access these facilities.”

If we want to make our region better and grow, then we’ve got to have transport. be expanded to run extra services, more regularly. “We have met with the Riverland councils and we are looking at ways to try and ramp this up and get it back onto the government’s list,” he said. “We are certainly in need but what we are doing now is to find

School shocked Barmera Playspace’s million dollar worth over worm theft By BRAD PERRY

By CALLUM TRIFONOFF RAMCO Primary School staff and students have been left stunned and disappointed after the school’s worm farm was ransacked last week. Approximately $100 worth of worms were stolen from the school’s worm farm at around 5pm last Thursday. The farm has been a popular and long standing activity for students and principal Jason Sheehy said the theft is hard to comprehend. “The kids and staff have put a lot of time and energy into building up that worm farm in past years and to have someone come in and take something that doesn’t belong to them is a little bit disappointing,” Mr Sheehy said.

“I guess every school has the odd occasion of vandalism but we are really disappointed this has happened.” Mr Sheehy said whoever is responsible somehow gained access to the worm farm, located in one of the school’s classrooms. “Someone was seen coming out of the room the other day,” he said. “That alerted (us) that something was going on. “They found a key to access the room and took what they wanted.” The school has decided to relocate the worm farm to prevent possible vandalism. “We’ve moved the worm farm to a more secure location,” Mr Sheehy added.

BERRI Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton believes the Barmera Playspace is worth close to $1 million. At the Playspace’s official opening at Sedunary Park on Tuesday, Mr Beaton said the efforts of the community and stakeholders has cemented the playground’s reputation as a top quality tourist attraction. “One of the important things is, we got roughly around $500,000 worth of funding but because of the group’s efforts, we were able to do an extra 50 per cent (of work),” he said. “The value here is probably $800,000 to $900,000 worth of playground because of their efforts.” While the Playspace has been open to the public since April, Group member Sue Whitbourne said the official opening this week acknowledged the work invested into the project. “We’ve been really well supported from funding opportunities from both open space and local government, plus a range of community organisations,” she said. An entrance wall will be construced within the next six weeks to also further display the efforts and contributions of sponsors involved in creating the Playspace.

The extension of the Barmera project has not yet finished, with the group receiving a grant of $20,000 to add further elements for kids and people with disabilities, including a trike track and swings. Funding is also being sought for stage two of the project with ideas including a fitness area and a mini football/soccer oval amongst many others.

NEW $499 JS46 By BRAD PERRY AFTER an “exhaustive� inaugural meeting of the newly formed tourism board Destination Riverland, the region’s image will be given an overhaul. The board conducted a six-hour long meeting at the Berri Resort Hotel yesterday, where it was decided the “unique and diverse product� that is the Riverland needs a new marketing look. “We have made the decision to contact and work with a number of the natural partners that exist in the diversity of the Riverland and to focus on the promotion, marketing and publicity of the extraordinarily impressive range of events,� Destination Riverland chair Joan Hall told the Riverland Weekly. “We are also working, as a matter of some urgency, to establish an online presence under the banner of Destination Riverland, Tourism in

the Region. “Already we are finding that there is an enthusiasm for, perhaps, a different focus on the way we promote and market tourism in the Riverland region as a whole.� Local business owners and those people with a vested interest in tourism will be given the chance to provide ideas to the new board. “We are going to endeavour to work with ideas that are coming from the individuals involved with tourism from the commercial sector, industry groupings and the business sector, where they can assist and have their ideas looked at,� Ms Hall said. “I think it is fair to say that by the end of our meeting, while exhaustion was the order of the day, there is a genuine excitement and enthusiasm of the opportunities that are out there for us to grab with both hands.� Destination Riverland will use

the region’s unique qualities to refocus a marketing and publicity campaign involving online media and social networks. The board also received a briefing from the South Australian Tourism Commission’s regional marketing team on its plan to promote the Riverland and other South Australian regions. “The Riverland is unique and one of the keys to driving growth in the region’s tourism industry will be to extend and build upon this uniqueness,� Ms Hall said. “In the past week we’ve seen the success of examples of unique tourist offerings, such as the Rose Festival, the Wine and Food Festival and the ‘running of the sheep’ in Barmera. “These are the sort of events upon which we must build the Riverland’s tourism brand.�

Ward: Efficiencies must be recognised in basin plan By BRAD PERRY IF the Riverland’s historic irrigation efficiency is not recognised in the latest installment of the Murray Darling Basin Plan to be released next month, it is likely to go back to the drawing board, a basin group believes. Murray Darling Association region 5 president Mark Ward said the group has had continued to discussions with local irrigators and stakeholders and he hears the message loud and clear. “I think they’ve got to start to listen to us and I think Craig Knowles has shown that he is willing to listen and I am just hoping the people who are actually putting it all together are actually listening,� Mr Ward said. “I think they will be back here in six months doing it all again (if South Australia’s previously proposed basin plan irrigation allocation cuts do not change). “Because we have become so efficient in the past, we have a little less improvement that we can make into the future than other areas can.� With Murray Darling Basin Authority chairman Craig Knowles visiting the region recently, Mr Ward said he is hopeful the region will receive a fair deal in the proposed plan. “They (irrigation representatives) had a really good sit down and a talk with Craig Knowles and let him know exactly...what they feel is important and must go into that basin plan,� Mr Ward said. “There is a big bucket of money up there for infrastructure and that type of thing and if we can’t utilise that sort of money in South Australia we don’t mind them using it up stream, as long as we get the credit off of our allocation restriction.� Phasing in water savings across the basin over a longer period of time is a better option than immediate cuts, according to Mr Ward.

“I think it’s a much fairer situation if they have a timeframe from, say 2011 to 2019, and in that time acquire and build infrastruture and improve the efficiencies in that time to draw back that sort of water,� he said. “All of these sudden impact (irrigator allocation cuts) around the place are going to have a very heavy impact on our regions, local towns, local communities and we can’t afford to lose very much more of what we’ve got. “We’ve already lost a lot of good families and good people in our industries and we can’t afford, as communities, to lose any more.�

Environment group’s milestone By BRAD PERRY GLOSSOP volunteer Heather Shearer has spent two decades working with the environment, watching the Riverland's landscape change and grow. This month, the organisation in which Mrs Shearer is president, Friends of Riverland Parks, celebrates 20 years since it was formed. Mrs Shearer said working with the group began as a keen interest and has continued to progress with Friends of Riverland Parks undertaking revegetation projects, fox baiting, gazania control, maintaining and establishing walking trails

and biological surveys. She joined the group in 1991 after volunteers were being sought due to a lack of rangers. “The rangers saw a need for voluntary assistance,” she said. “There wasn't enough rangers, so they needed volunteers to help them with park maintenance and that sort of thing.” Most of the group's activities centre around Katarapko, Cooltong and Poogniook. There has been a number of projects Mrs Shearer has been proud to be involved in. “There were two projects we helped with, one was down at Loch Luna where

we planted saltbush down there and they are huge saltbushes,” she said. “The other (project) was we planted on a hillside... and we planted some pines and now we've got a whole hillside covered in pines. “Some of the revegetation projects have been absolutely fantastic.” The group currently has 35 members who will be celebrating its 20th birthday. Mrs Shearer saw the effects of the drought on local parks and wildlife. “The past few years of the drought, we didn't plant trees, not big plantations... because you just can't water them,” she said.

Barmera PS attends conference

■ TIME: Barmera Sheep Dog Trials organiser Bob Clark will be retiring from his role as organiser to concentrate on other elements of his life.

BARMERA Primary School has been chosen as one of 60 schools from around the counry to attend an internationally recognised environmental eductation event.

Photo: FILE

The three-day 2011 International Kids Teaching Kids River Conference, held in Adelaide from Friday will see Barmera Primary, amongst other schools, share its ideas on how to be ‘environmental

superheroes.’ Minister for Water Paul Caica will officially open the conference over 55,000 children will participate in teaching their peers through a variety of subjects.

Bob calls it a day By CALLUM TRIFONOFF THE man behind the popular local event the Barmera sheep Dog Trials is calling it a day after nearly three decades as organiser. Running the sheep dog trials has always been an interesting challenge for Bob Clark but he has decided this year's event would be his last. Not being the main organiser of the trials will enable Bob and wife Rosie to travel the country together and for Bob to focus on his career. The trials have been part of Bob's life since 1983 and he is proud to have started the annual event in Barmera. “(The sheep dog trials) had three years at Smithfield Plains High School and then eight years at Northfield High School and then the rest up here, which is about 19, with Glossop High School,”

People

he said. Every year since the Barmera trials began, Bob has involved Glossop High School agricultural students. “The interaction with the students has obviously been great fun,” he said. “Seeing what they get out of it, the building of their self-esteem and then attempting things they may not have thought of (has been great).” Bob has many stories to tell from his long association with the trials. “One day, some sheep got out and people tried to help (get them back) and

they ended up all the way in the (town),” he laughed. “They got in the backyard of someone's place. “Another time, a sheep got in the lake somehow. “Mostly after a while they turn around and come back but not this (sheep), he was about 200 metres out (in the water).” Bob said a former Northfield High School student is expected to run the trials next year but he maintains he will still be involved in some capacity. “(Paul Doherty) has had 18 or so year's experience (in sheep dog trials),” he said. “He said he'd take it up and he'd be capable of doing it if we can find him a job down here. “If Paul takes over, I'll still give him a hand.” Last weekend's sheep dog trials gained worldwide attention after sheep ran down Barmera’s main street.

OF THE competitors at this year’s Berri 90 Ski Race Classic, current Open Men’s World Champion water skier Chris Stout is one of the best. Stout, who claimed the open men’s title at the 17th World Waterski Racing Championships last month, is expected to draw a large crowd when he participates at next weekend’s ski classic. His victory at Moreton Bay last month was an impressive accomplishment having finished third at the World Championships in Belgium two years ago. The Sydney skier also took part in the Queensland Ski Racing Championships, winning the men’s open title in 2010 and stands unchallenged as the leading competitor in Australian water skiing. Stout also has national and New South Wales titles to his name and will have a strong chance at adding another victory to his honour list at the Berri 90 Ski Race Classic. Meanwhile, two-time world champion (1999 and 2001) Stephen Robertson will also compete alongside stout at the Berri event. He has tasted success at the World Waterski Racing Championships in Spain and

the United States of America and will be another of the major attractions at next week’s Berri 90 Ski Race Classic. The veteran skier will team up with current world champion and water skiing icon Chris Stout and his experience and smarts in the water could be the key to success at the event this year. A regular competitor at the world championships since the early 1990s, Robertson has also raced at the Mildura 100 and the Southern 80.

River alive for ski classic THE roaring sound of boat engines will fill Berri next weekend as the annual Berri 90 Ski Race Classic comes to life. This year’s two day event will include some of the world’s greatest water skiing champions amongst 30 classes and 150 entries at the Berri Water Ski Club at Martin Bend. The major attraction will be the appearance of current Open Men’s World Champion water skier Chris Stout and former global dominant Stephen Robertson. Berri Resort Hotel 90 Ski Race Classic co-ordinator Loretta Scott said attracting big names in the sport will help pull a large amount of spectators to the event. “They’re skiing together behind a boat that won the world title this year called Blazen,” Loretta said.

You’ll see people water skiing at 180 kilometres per hour.

“Then we’ve got other teams that competed, such as Hell Razor, who won the Berri 90 last year. “The sister boat to that is called Hell Bent.” Berri’s Chris and Damien Philp will be two of the local contingent to compete in the event against ski racers from across Australia including South Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. Saturday’s feature event is the Baldwin Racing Berri Mayhem, where all top-class competitors go head-to-head. “(They compete) in a pursuit format,” Loretta said. “They do one fast lap and that gives them their qualifying position for Sunday’s event.” This year’s ski classic will be Loretta’s first as co-ordinator, after nearly 20 years in ski racing administration roles. She is encouraging people to attend the event, which also ties in with Berri centenary celebrations. “I’d be encouraging people to come and have a look at the sport,” Loretta said. “It’s different, you’ll see people water skiing at 180 kilometres per hour, not something you see every day on the river.” The aim for the classic is to continue to grow and earn a reputation as a high class event statewide, according to Loretta. “We want it to grow and we want it to eventually rival the speedboat spectacular,” she said. Attendance for the Berri 90 Ski Race Classic on October 29 and 30 is free and the event is fully catered. The start and finish lines will be based at the Berri Water Ski Club, with all races starting at 10am on both days.

& Safety Tips to help reduce fire danger

T

HE CFS is urging Riverland and Mallee residents to act now to prepare for the bushfire danger period. Officially, the fire danger period begins in the Murraylands fire danger region (covering the Riverland and Mallee) on November 15 and runs until March 31, 2012. However, residents should not wait until next month to start thinking about minimising fire risks around their property. The CFS has adopted a simple motto to help reduce the damage - both human and property - from bushfires: Prepare, Act, Survive.

Preparation throughout the year is essential to ensuring you, your property and your family survive a bushfire. Even if you are not around, there is a greater chance your home will survive if you have undertaken good preparation.

Cut the risk in your backyard

Property owners are well advised to remove any flammable material within 20 metres of a house. However, if this is not possible there are other options to cut the fire risk. You do not have to remove trees to create and maintain a defendable area around your home, although clearly the less vegetation nearby, the lower the risk of sparks FIRE DANGER SEASON or flames reaching your The lighting of fires of any description within property. the Berri Barmera Council area will not be Any vegetation or litpermitted except those authorised through ter, particularly if it is dry, the Fire and Emergency Services Act, provides fuel for a fire. 2005 Division 8- Section 79, between Fire This is often what Danger Season. makes it difficult for fires Residents are therefore advised that all to be extinguished, parburning off for the clearance of their land ticularly if the leaf litter must be completed by the commencement of is deep. the fire danger season.

Permits for Burning Off Sulphur Boxes permits are required for the burning of sulphur boxes pursuant to the Fire and Emergency Services Act 2005. A site inspection must be carried out by the Fire Prevention Officer prior to permits being issued. Appointments can be made by contacting the Council Office. During the Fire Danger Season the Council may issue permits for burning. For further information, please contact Council’s Fire Prevention Officer on 8582 1922.

to your home, you should not overlook the fire risk they also pose in a bushfire. Check with your local supplier or the manufacturer to see if covering these units with flywire will impact on their performance.

ticularly the windows. Burning shrubs can crack windows and allow embers to enter. They can also easily ignite wooden strtuctures, outdoor furniture and pergolas. Any shrubs around your yard should have the tops pruned well away from the lower branches of trees. Take a look at the trees in your yard. Is the bark loose, coarse and flaky? If so, it can increase the chances of a fire climbing a tree, creating ember showers and making life difficult for ground level fire fighters. Any accumulated debris beneath trees and shrubs, such as old bark, dead twigs, leaves or needles, should be removed. Once you have checked out your vegetation, turn your attention to any sprinkler systems in your garden or irrigation in your paddocks. Could this be activated in the event of a fire?

Your home structure Reducing fire risk is not just about cutting down on hazardous items and debris around your home, it is worth looking at the infrastructure of your home for ways you can improve its fire safety. Gutters and downpipes: Prevent

the build-up of leaves with the installation of leaf guards. If you do not have leaf guards already installed, ensure your gutters are kept free from leaves on a regular basis. Underfloor spaces: If your home is elevated and the cavity beneath it exposed, it could allow an ember to fly in and start an awkward, sometimes unnoticed, spot fire beneath the building. Reduce this risk by covering the cavity with non-combustible sheeting or even metal flywire. Roof: Tile or iron rooves are best. If you have a roof made from shingles or other flammable material, consider replacement, particularly if you are in a high fire risk area. The eaves should also be boxed to prevent sparks entering the home. Vents and crevices: Vents and crevices around the home also provide the perfect entry points for embers, particularly in windy conditions. The solution is simple; cover all external vents with metal flywire (it will also help reduce insect and spider entry to your home). Check for any gaps, particularly if you have timber cladding, as they too can be an invitation for embers. Air conditioners: If you have an air conditioner installed in your window, or an evaporative unit external

Fences: Fences can act as a good barrier against some bushfires, provided they are made from noncombustible materials such as metal or brick. Doors and windows: Ideally your windows should be shielded with metal flywire screens or shutters. Weather stripping should be placed around the inside of both doors and windows to eliminate any gaps.

General housekeeping Housekeeping around the home is an important way to reduce the risk of property damage and human injury during a blaze. Not only should you clear leaf litter, branches and grass from around your home and in the gutters, but you should survey the area for man-made fuel sources too. Pay particular attention to verandahs that might be an accumulation point for recyclables like paper, boxes and crates. If your woodpile is located adjacent the house, move it well away. Any chemicals and fuel supplies should also be stored remote from the house. If you have gas supplied to your home, ensure the vent pipe for the LPG cylinders is facing away from the house. Any fine fuels around the cylinders that could be sparked by embers should be raked away and removed.

Weather warms up, so does bushfire risk T

HE introduction of a fire danger period from November 15 simply means there will be a range of enforceable restrictions put in place to help cut the risk of bushfires. As well as some standard restrictions requiring permits for some fire

risk activities, the CFS can also make the decision to introduce total fire bans if the risks are increased due to very hot or windy conditions. A Total Fire Ban may be declared for any one, or for all Fire Ban Districts, and will be released to the media on the evening prior to the Total Fire Ban day to coincide with nightly news broadcasts. The Riverland and Mallee is covered by the Murraylands Fire Ban District. With a few exceptions, no fires can be lit in the open on a Total Fire Ban day. From November 15 until March 31, 2012, all fires, other than those used for cooking and personal comfort, gas fired appliances for cooking purposes or electric welding equipment and gas fires used for other purposes require a permit to be issued.

Riverland

FIRE AND SAFETY

Anyone needing to light a fire during this period need to contact an authorised officer through their local council to make an application. You can apply personally, by mail, email, over the telephone or via radio. The authorised officer will only issue a permit if he, or she, is satisfied the lighting and maintaining of the fire is, in all circumstances of the case, justified and that adequate precautions will be taken to prevent the spread of fire. Conditions of the permit are included on the document provided by the authorised officer. People applying for a permit will need to notify all adjoining neighbours, an officer of the council, the person in charge or any nearby government reserves and the local CFS at least two hours before the fire is lit.

18 • Riverland Weekly – Thursday October 20, 2011

Locals receive state honours A NUMBER of local organisations and individuals have been acknowledged for their community efforts at last week’s Advantage SA Regional Awards. Amongst the winners were Monash resident Alysha Herrmann, who received an arts award, for her talents as an emerging theatre writer, performer and director. Since entering the world of performing arts as a participant in a project called Random Girls when she was 19, Alysha has embraced every opportunity that has been offered to her. Initially as a newcomer to the theatre industry, Alysha participated in everything she could and over the past three years has emerged as an artist in her own right. Alysha has shared her skills and experiences by supporting the work of the Riverland Youth Theatre as a tutor, artist, board member and volunteering her time to support the company in any way possible. The Barmera Playspace Group were honoured for outstanding contributions towards their project by winning a community group award, while Pike River Luxury Eco Villas received a sustainability award.

■ WINNERS: Barmera Playspace Group’s Sue Whitbourne, Benita Dillon and Dara Clayton were worthy winners of a community group award at Advantage SA’s Regional Awards last week.

â–  HONOUR: (Right) Monash theatre writer, performer and director Alysha Herrmann with her arts award, while (above) Murray Bridge Mayor Allan Arbon presents RDA Murraylands and Riverland CEO Brenton Lewis with a sustainability award on behalf of Pike River Luxury Eco Villas.

Wake-up call for people living without insurance A RECENT report into life insurance serves as a wake-up call to thousands of Australians adopting the ‘it will never happen to me’ approach. The Rice Warner Actuaries’ report UnderInsurance in Australia showed awareness and uptake of Income Protection and Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance is extremely low. The report found that only 22 per cent of Australians have adequate TPD insurance and 24 per cent have adequate Income Protection cover. It also seems life insurance is the best understood form of personal insurance with 83 per cent of eligible Australians having their average needs met, according to the report. While most Australians appreciate the benefits of car insurance or health insurance, when it comes to insurance that protects their

TPD cover Report by AMP Financial Planner

VERONICA RUTHERFORD personal wealth it is a different story. The old adage ‘ignorance is bliss’ certainly does not apply when things do not go to plan - there’s nothing blissful about financial stress during a personal crisis. Instead you should be planning for how you would cope financially if you became ill or injured. Here is the lowdown on four basic types of insurances that protect personal wealth:

Death cover

ALSO known as life insurance, death cover provides a lump sum payment to your beneficiary upon your death or to you if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness. Many people have this insurance within their superannuation with the common expectation of proBreast cancer impacts thousands of Australian women viding enough to and their families every year. pay out debts and meet other expenses It is the most commonly diagnosed cancer amongst such as childrens’ Australian women, with 1 in 9 being diagnosed by the education.

age of 85.* If this happened to you how would you and your family cope ďŹ nancially? Call Veronica today for a conďŹ dential discussion about the options available to protect you and your family.

THIS cover provides a lump sum payable when a person becomes totally and permanently disabled and, as a result, are unable to work in an occupation for which they are reasonably suited by education, training or experience. Insurers have differing definitions of what constitutes a total and permanent disability, so it is extremely important to read and understand the fine print of the contract before signing.

Income protection UNLIKE TPD which pays out a lump sum, income protection provides you with regular income when you are unable to do your job due to illness or an accident. It is designed to replace up to 75 per cent of your income after a specific waiting period and it will pay monthly for a specific period of time.

Trauma insurance TRAUMA insurance provides a lump sum payment on diagnosis of certain medical conditions or events after a qualifying period. The types of medical conditions it covers differs from insurer to insurer but typically includes the ‘big four’ conditions of cancer,

Which one is right for me? IT CAN be confusing to work out which type of insurance is right for you. When considering which insurance is best, think realistically about what will happen to your family, lifestyle and assets if you lose the ability to earn money because of illness or injury. Begin by asking yourself some hard questions such as: â–  How long could I pay the bills and the mortgage if my income ceased? â–  Is there scope for family to help in the event that I could not work and what burden would that place on them? â–  What lifestyle changes could be made immediately and how long could I sustain them if I was faced with a personal crisis today?

heart attack, stroke, and coronary by-pass surgery. Depending on the comprehensive nature of the contract you elect, you could also be covered for other conditions such as head trauma, multiple sclerosis and paralysis. Some insurers will also provide ‘children’s cover within your policy (for an additional premium) which can help support you with the cost of caring for your child in the event they become seriously ill. Again, specifically what is covered will be described in the contract, so it pays to read this carefully before signing.

These are just a few of the questions to consider and they need to be answered realistically and honestly. Often these questions are best discussed with a financial planner who is trained to ensure all considerations are covered and to help put the resulting answers into perspective for you. Even though it can be quite confronting to talk about the worst things that can happen to you and your loved ones, planning for the worst can provide peace of mind and let you get on with enjoying the best that life has to offer. *Veronica Rutherford is an Authorised Representative of AMP Financial Planning Pty Ltd, ABN 89 051 208 327, AFS Licence No. 232706.

Mazda2’s convenient update Australia misses out on i10 HYUNDAI Motor Company Australia has confirmed that the i10 city car is not going to be sold in this country, with concerns about its ability to achieve a five-star ANCAP rating cited as the main hurdle, The Motor Report said. Speaking to TMR at

the recent i40 Tourer launch, HMCA's Product Planning Manager Andrew Tuitahi said the “i10 is not on the horizon for us.� Mr Tuitahi said the lack of a 5-Star Euro NCAP rating (and, thus, ditto for ANCAP) for the i10 made it a poor fit with the rest of Hyundai's

5-Star local line up. The diminutive hatchback scored just four stars under Euro NCAP testing. The popularity of the model in overseas markets also raises the prospect of supply constraints, further dampening the business case for an Australian-delivered i10.

2011 Australian International Motor Show. Designed and engineered in Germany for the European market, the i40 Tourer gives Hyundai a wagon com-

panion for the popular i45, pitching it against the wagon versions of the Mazda6 and Ford Mondeo. The i40 Tourer is available in Hyundai’s familiar trim levels.

P et s How to look after pet crabs Maintaining your crab DESPITE being regarded as a relatively low maintenance pet, hermit crabs do need a life like replica environment in order to survive. As they are generally found around the warm waters of the Northern Territory and Western Australia, they need strictly tropical conditions to live healthy and happily. If this is not provided to the creature, it is likely to only survive for a short period of time. Regular trips to the veterinarian

are also important for your pet’s health and well-being. Servicing all Riverland towns

Feeding your crab AS HERMIT crabs are scavengers, they enjoy eating raw vegetables and meat products daily. This will give them a balanced diet and will clean out remaining quantities of old food within their system. Hermit crabs enjoy drinking fresh water. When it comes to their food bowls, do not use metal dishes. It is suggested they can poison sensitive crabs, so it is recommended you use scallop shells as their bowl. A water bowl (different to a walk-through one) is best for the crabs to drink out of.

IF YOU are planning to own a hermit crab, you need to make sure they live in the right habitat. It is not hard, nor expensive, to set up a tank for the side-walking creature and the recommended house would be a glass rectangular fish tank. This is a popular choice as an average 90 centimetre tank can house up to 15 crabs. It is recommended you cover the bottom of the tank with five centimetres of sand while pieces of dry wood, ornaments or barnacles can be added for the crabs to climb. Make sure you place a lid over the tank to stop your pet climbing out. An ideal temperature in the tank is generally between 24 and 27 degrees celsius.

A water bowl should be made available for crabs to walk through as well.

Talent duo to play at Cobby By BRAD PERRY AWARD winning singers Luke Austen and Luke Dickens are taking their Cross the Country Tour to the Riverland tonight bringing a performance inspired by many genres. The talented duo will play at the Cobdogla Club tonight as part of their Australian wide tour, reaching regional areas to give back to their fans. Both Lukes have been worthy recipients of the Toyota Star Maker Award, while Mr Dickens this year took home Two Golden Guitars and Mr Dickens was also the runnerup in the 2008 season of Australian Idol behind Wes Carr. Mr Austen said the pair have already played to sold out shows and are hoping for a warm reception from the Riverland. “We’re really proud we can take the show to Cobby and we are really looking forward to it,� Mr Austen said. “People travel for hundreds of kilometres and hours and hours worth of driving to come and watch us play and we really wanted to repay that and have us do the hard yards and take our music to them.� The tour began earlier this

month in Tamworth, taking in shows throughout regional New South Wales, Western Australia, Brisbane and South Australia. Mr Austen said he is proud of the awards he has won during his career but insists he just loves playing and writing music. “For me it’s self expression,� he said. “Being creative through music is such a joyous thing because you get to share it with a lot of people. “If you love what you do then you never work a day in your life.� Those who attend tonight’s show can expect interaction during the pair’s performance. “For something that is very small, there is a whole lot of energy,� Mr Austen said. “We are not just crossing our styles of music, we are actually literally crossing the country.� The two Lukes are also raising money for charity organisations during their tour. The performance at the Cobdogla Club tonight begins at 8pm and is supported by local act Georgette & Caroline, with admission tickets available for $10.

Y with BRAD PERR

War on ratings has begun THE television stations will attempt to recover from a horror year by presenting waves of new summer shows. It is a ratings war and we are the civilians caught in the cross-fire. There will be programmes we grow to like but like always, there will be flops. Just a snippet of the new shows include ABC’s Who’s Been Sleeping In My House?, Seven’s World’s Strictest Parents UK, Nine of course has the cricket, Ten has madeover It’s A Knockout and SBS will introduce Bollywood Star. Channel Seven has dominated ratings so far this year but its ratings are expected to slow. Channel Nine has done well with Underbelly and Ten is still reeling from The Renovators’ poor viewer numbers. It could be a photo finish.

Movie of the week Burke & Hare â–  SINGERS: Luke Austen and Luke Dickens (above) will be performing in Cobdogla tonight as part of a country wider tour.

WITH a swathe of well known actors, this British comedy delivers something different. Many recent comedies have lacked depth but Burke & Hare will certainly get a laugh or two. The plot revolves around two 19th century grave robbers who stumble upon a business providing bodies to a medical school.

CD of the week

RIVERLAND WINE AND FOOD FESTIVAL

Just Jack - Overtones JUST Jack will not be everyone’s cup of tea but the underated hip-hop artist certainly has some catchy songs. With his accent on par with The Streets, Jack Allsopp does not deliver the usual hip-hop antics. Instead his lyrics are well spun and his beats involve a mixup of jazz and funk. A very catchy album destined to be a regular in your CD colllection.

■ FRIENDLY: Attending the Riverland Wine and Food Festival were Renmark’s Monique Mercieca and Barmera’s Samantha Ruediger.

â–  ENJOYMENT: Riverland Wine and Food Festival attendees were (clockwise from top, left) Warren Kluse, of Andrews farm, George Kluse, of Loveday, Anna Kregar, of Winkie, and June Kluse, also of Andrews farm.

Game of the week Infamous 2 - PS3 MANY gamers were disappointed with the first version of this first person thriller due to technical flaws but the second version is a big improver. The storyline is extensive with up to 20 hours of gaming to keep you interested with worthy graphics. What makes Infamous 2 a worthy winner is the game allows you just to have fun, unlike many other shoot-em up titles.

28 • Riverland Weekly – Thursday October 20, 2011

SPORT

Plays and Misses with Graham Charlton and Brad Perry

This edition the Riverland Weekly launches a regular cricket column focusing on the local competitions and aiming to look at all the action on and off the field. Monash pulls the pin

Creating cricket pathways

■ IT was certainly sad to hear the Monash Cricket Club would not field a team in this year's A grade Riverland Turf Cricket Association. The competition is now reduced to four A grade teams and will not have a bye, adding extra workload for players. In 2009/10 Monash played in the A grade grand final but since then has lost significant player numbers with a low number attending training. Losing 30 players over three years will always hurt a club. Monash will attempt to rejoin A grade ranks but it will only be an uphill battle one thinks. With Monash pulling out of the A grade competition and with a healthy number of B grade teams, the fixture must be looked at. With just four teams, is there enough competition to keep players interested? Will the Riverland, Pinnaroo and Border, Renmark District and Mid Murray competitions merge into one? Only time will tell but one feels something has to be done.

■ A LOT has been said recently about the need to create better pathways through junior to senior levels in all of our local sports. Cricket is definitely no exception so that this Sunday’s registration session for both Milo (ages 4 to 8) and Primary Age (8 to12) programs from 9am at the Berri No 2 oval, is very important in the overall scheme of things. Organisers are stressing that the proposed new primary competition is not just for boys and girls from the Berri area but that children, either in teams or individually, from right across the Riverland are welcome to attend. “Youngsters in the older age group like to play games rather than be subjected to just coaching type activities” a spokesman said. “So we will have actual matches while at the same time sneaking in some advice on how to play cricket. “Importantly as well, we are looking at running the matches on Sunday mornings to avoid a clash on Saturdays with sports like tennis, baseball and basketball. “It will give juniors the opportunity to try cricket as well as those other sports.” Already there are indications that there is considerable interest regionally in this new competition. For further information contact Todd Charlton or Matthew Clifford on 85823899.

...but B grade team has a real chance for the flag ■ WHILE Monash will not field an A grade team this season, several of its talented experienced and junior players will play in the B grade. With the likes of Wayne and Nathan Scadden, Paul Eleftheriadis and Kade Boase all playing in the second division competition on the weekend, Monash’s fall from A grade ranks may yet have a silver lining.

Where did he go? ■ INTERESTING to note that Renmark fast bowler Luke Fitzsimmons, who was the hero of last year’s A grade final against Loxton, began the season in the B grade. One thinks he may be carrying an injury, taking 0/16 against Monash and producing 13 with the bat. Let’s hope we soon see Luke back to producing the pace he is well known for.

Loxton bloods new talent

■ LOXTON faltered early in its bid to win back-to-back A grade one day titles with a first up loss to Renmark at the weekend. It was very interesting to see a number of B graders from last season stepping up to the higher ranks. Tristan Graetz, Kieran Reynolds, Dale Ward (pictured) and Rory Hoile all played most of the season in the B grade in 2010/11. Spin stocks will certainly be light on with the loss of Sean Reilly and Ben Walter. However, word has it that Reilly, who is playing with Tea Tree Gully and Sam Hoffmann who has moved, may play enough games to qualify for the finals.

No duck season for Wunkar ■ WUNKAR began the season with its renowned hit or miss style and despite four ducks, smashed 180 and gained a first up win.

What lies ahead? ■ YOU may have heard this story before but in view of the player number problems currently being experienced at many levels of cricket in our region, it is worth repeating. Some 10 or 12 years ago, in my position as Murray Districts zone organiser, I was summoned to a SACA meeting at the Adelaide Oval with the agenda to include a discussion on a comprehensive survey that had been conducted by the association relating to cricket in regional areas. As far as Murray Districts was concerned, it was recommended, amongst other things, that for the future of the game we need to look at competitions being played on a zone basis rather than in separate associations (Riverland, Mid Murray, Renmark District and Pinnaroo and Border). I recall treating the suggestion with some disdain because of the distances people would have to travel in such a concept and I was pretty unpopular amongst the SACA officials that had been involved in the project who were obviously in possession of information like projections on present and future participation numbers etc. I also recall a critical reaction from an organiser from the West Coast, where to play sport it had historically been necessary to travel long distances. Could it be that our future may depend on us lifting our eyes and looking at the bigger picture? The re-introduction of something like the old Murray District Carnival type round robin competition in 2011-12 will give our officials a chance to chat about the future.

Country carnival enthusiasm ■ TALKING to new Murray Districts organiser Michael Gutsche on Sunday, his enthusiasm for the task was immediately obvious. Of course the challenge of breaking the zone’s long drought at the annual SACA Country Carnival became a topic and he remarked “our top 15 players across all of our associations are pretty good, so let’s hope we can get them all available for Adelaide”. The reduction of the carnival to only one week has increased the chance of that happening and in last year’s event Neil Weinert, in his last year as organiser, nearly got his team into the final.

Kruger back in black and yellow

“It was a slow start and a poor first game that cost them” said Gutsche. Michael and joint organiser Greg Graetz, are proposing to get this season’s squad together for a couple of practice sessions prior to the carnival.

Let’s Fix Cricket ■ WITH all the current activity and talk about how we can improve our cricket at all levels, junior to senior, I have been thinking of suggesting a slogan for such a campaign. Let’s Fix Cricket would have been perfect but I quickly realised that it may not really be appropriate.

If Lillee can’t get you... Cummins must

■ THE emergence of exciting teenage pace bowler Pat Cummins (pictured) on the Australian first class scene has taken me back to one of the memorable times in my favourite game. I was at Adelaide Oval for the sixth Ashes Test in 1970-71, when West Australian Dennis Lillee made his debut. Almost unknown, Lillee had been elevated up the fast bowling pecking order because of injury to a number of key quicks. Lillee, aged 20, had been to New Zealand in 1969-70 with an Australian second team at the end of his first season with WA and had captured 18 wickets at an average of 16. However, I am sure no Aussie fan was prepared for the immediate impact the firebrand would have against the traditional enemy. With a lot more hair than he has today, Lillee was all raw pace and unbridled aggression and with long locks flowing, he blew the English batting line-up away to the tune of 5 for 84 from 29 overs, all delivered in the customary Adelaide Test heat. I recall how us Aussie fans celebrated the annihilation after we had gone to the ground lamenting the absence of our regular pace men. Of course history tells us that Lillee’s almost reckless approach to launching his thunderbolts nearly resulted in his career ending as quickly as it started, when stress fractures in his back stopped him in his tracks and he was written off by many in 1972-73. But the doubters underestimated the man and after exhaustive rehabilitation and a remodelling of his action, he went on to play until the final Test against Pakistan in Sydney in 1983-84, taking a wicket with the last ball he bowled to give him 355 wickets at an average of 23.92 from 70 Test matches. His combination with wicketkeeper Rodney Marsh is legendary and the fact that Marsh finished with 355 dismissals as well is freakish. Now young Cummins, at only 18, has already found his way into the Australian Test squad and he has got there in double quick time with an approach to his trade that has a lot of similarities to the way the great DK started out. Let us hope that the newcomer`s young body stands up to the rigors of terrorising batsmen all around the world for a career as long as we were privileged to see from arguably the best fast bowler ever to play the game.

By CALLUM TRIFONOFF ALL Australian country footballer Leigh Kruger is back at Tigerland and has all but guaranteed to pull Loxton from the bottom in 2012. The former captain and star midfielder will try everything he can to help the Tigers return to finals football. Kruger, who decided to return home to play football in Victor Harbor last season, will make the move back to the Riverland Football League and is keen to make an immediate impact. “I obviously really wanted to play back at my original club and play with my brother and a few mates,” he told the Riverland Weekly. “It was always going to be one year and I’m really looking forward to being able to come back and be with the Loxton Football Club again.” The Victor Harbor Kangaroos finished fifth in the Great Southern Football League this year and were knocked out of the finals series in the elimination final by Yankalilla. Kruger said it was disappointing to see Loxton claim the wooden spoon after several years of consistent finals football appearances. “(I’m excited to) get back and play finals footy at Loxton,” he said. One of the reasons for Kruger’s decision to return to Loxton was due to his young family. The transfer to Victor Harbor was worthwhile for Kruger as he experienced a completely different competition with several former Australian Football League and South Australian National Football League players. “The standard of footy’s obviously really high, really tough (in the Great Southern Football League),” he said. “Riverland footy is probably a bit more open, a bit younger.” However, Kruger took nothing away from the quality of Riverland football. “There’s good people in the Riverland and good people to play against as well,”he said.

Touch football embraces new format TOUCH football in the region has a new format with many invited to embrace the growing sport. The first of a series of lightning carnivals was held last night in Berri. Others will be held on November 9 and November 30. A tournament between Berri and Waikerie is proposed for December 14 to finish the season. Riverland be active field officer Adrian Pipe said the new format is being tried as there were insufficient registrations to run the traditional competition. Teams or individuals need only turn up on the night of the lightning carnivals and the draw for each evening will be determined by the number of registrations. Registrations must be completed between 5.45 and 6.15pm on the night to allow sufficient time for the draw. “Touch football is a great, fun, family activity with minimal contact, hence the name touch,” Adrian explained. “There’s only a few rules, so it’s easy to learn and a fantastic way to stay or get into shape.”

■ OVER: Waikerie coach Troy Lehmann will not lead the A grade next season.

Griffiths and Kay are both excited about the prospect of coaching together again after previous experiences in the past. Both admit the job is something they cannot do individually. “At this stage in our lives at the moment, it would be really difficult for us to do it in our own right,” Kay said. Griffiths, who retired from A grade football this season is looking forward to the challenge of coaching the talented Magpies. “I enjoy coaching, so that’s why I’m back into it,” he said. “We just reckon the club’s in good condition. “We’re proud and honoured to take over from Troy.” Despite a heavy workload, Lehmann said he will miss coaching the

Magpies, who nearly tasted premiership success at A grade level this season, but wants to spend more time with his family. “I’ll certainly miss it this year but I needed a break,” he said. “I’ve got three young kids and now I get to spend a bit of time with them. “I’ll still be involved.” Lehmann also ruled out the possibility of coaching elsewhere in the near future. In other RFL news, Mick Zerna has been announced to take over from Mark Wright as A grade coach of Loxton for the 2012 season. Premiership coach Craig Wooldridge will remain with Loxton North and Brett Backwell will again take the charge at Renmark. Berri is remaining tightlipped about its coaching prospects after Rod Hanking stepped down at the end of the 2011 season.

SAPA president Don Juers said the event will be the perfect end to a successful powerlifting year. “We got quite a few world records taken by the Riverland people,” Mr Juers said. “We had our national championships at the Renmark Club recently. “That was a great success.” Mr Juers said the talent in the competition field will make for an entertaining

spectacle. “From the Riverland, we’ve got Rose Gow, Fran Marlor, Sheryl Rapson and Andrew Norris competing,” he said. “We’ve also got six (competitors) from Adelaide.” Following strict powerlifting laws, Mr Juers said drug testing for competitiors will take place on the day. “We haven’t had anyone (caught with drugs before) but if we do have any, it’s an instant lifetime ban,” he said.

BARMERA-Monash legend and Riverland Football League stalwart Lyndon ’Snoopy’ Burns has signed with the Roos as A grade coach for 2012. Despite Mark Wilden leading his charges to two consecutive finals appearances, the club opted to seek a new coach with Burns its top priority. Burns will lead the A grade with current Barmera under 18 coach Shane Uren as his assistant. The 305-game veteran said he is delighted to be back coaching at the Lakeside after a stint with the RFL as a commission member. “It’s a fantastic club, I love the club, it’s good to be back,” he said. “I work away a lot and that’s sort of a barrier for me but opportunities have arose now. “(The club is) going in the right direction.” Meanwhile, well respected Waikerie A grade coach Troy Lehmann will also not be leading the Magpies next season, instead the A grade will be co-coached. Craig Griffiths and Brenton Kay will take the reins at the Magpies after Lehmann announced he will leave his post after a three-year stint.

Cricket border battle looms ■ RIVERLAND will play Pinnaroo and Border at Loxton on Sunday in the first of the round robin interassociation cricket matches being reintroduced across the Murray Districts Zone in 2011-12. The Mid Murray association will also participate. New Murray District organisers Loxton’s Michael Gutsche and Greg Graetz have announced a side that contains some experienced players including captain Josh Deren and Jake Albrecht, both recent Riverland Turf Cricket Association Cricketer of the Year award winners, who have joined Loxton this season. Who will forget the blazing century Deren produced to swing a titanic struggle between these two associations in the Riverland’s favour not so long ago? New Berri skipper Paul Burnett and his team-mate Chris Hughes, who made the 2010-11 SACA Team of the Country Carnival in Adelaide, and another Loxton regular last season Brad Walter,

are also onboard. Rhett Colls, who took out the RTCA wicketkeeping trophy last season will be behind the stumps and will keep for his young Loxton team-mates, pace bowling brothers Kale and Ryan Smith. Other youngsters in the lineup include promising Renmark batsman Morgan Smith, WaikerieRamco medium pacer Ben Schiller and a newcomer to Berri, Colby Harris who played for Tasmania’s Under 16 team as a pace bowler. Amongst players unavailable are 2010-11 RTCA Cricketer of the Year Andrew Hume and Danyal Reynolds (Berri), Tim Bevan (Waikerie-Ramco), Luke Fitzsimmons and Dale Lindner (Renmark). Pinnaroo and Border’s batting line-up will be particularly strong headed by Parrakie’s Haydon Thorpe, who has scored a century in each of the two representative games he has played for the association since arriving in the district. He also starred for Murray Districts at last season’s SACA

Country Carnival. Captain Sunyl Vogt (Pinnaroo) is also handy with the willow and will keep wicket, while others capable of big scores include Lameroo pair Craig Altus and youngster Martin Sumner and Parilla’s Nick Dabinett. In the all-rounder category is Kevin Wyatt (Murrayville) with his leg spin a danger, and Leith Dabinett (Parilla), while the bowling will be handled by quicks Dwayne Simon and his younger brother, left armer Jamie, (Parrakie), Andrew Bradley and young Brad Rosenzweig (Pinnaroo) and promising teenager Ben Hannam (Parilla). Drew Crane, the captain of Murray Districts in recent years and one of the fastest bowlers in country cricket, is a notable absentee as he has turned to tennis in 2011-12. Two other teenagers, Pinnaroo’s Tom Hawthorne and Lameroo’s Josh Barrett, who are both members of the State under 16 squad are also unavailable.

â–  PACE: Loxton opening bowler Ryan Smith will represent the Riverland in the Murray Districts Zone inter-association cricket carnival starting on Sunday.

Lake attracts sailing events Shooters on target at Loxton â–  A HEALTHY Lake Bonney continues to attract major events to Barmera. As previously reported, the Come and Try Triathlon and Murray Man weekend is set for November 19 and 20 but before that, on Saturday and Sunday November 5 and 6, the SA Mosquito Association will hold the first five

races of their state titles at the Lake Bonney Yacht Club. Local members will be hoping to put their knowledge of their home water to good use. LBYC opened the sailing season in windy conditions earlier this month but members experienced a good start to 2011-12.

Former club Commodore Graeme Kassebaum officially opened proceedings. Meanwhile, very windy conditions saw the cancellation of a handicap A race scheduled for last Saturday. A commencement date for the popular Saturday morning sailing sessions will be announced shortly.

He adds the championship to his win in the 54kg Schoolboysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; division in 2010. In this year`s tournament he had nominated for the 60kg Junior Open competition but in the absence of other entries was forced to elevate to the heavier division where he met Queenslandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Michael Black in the final.

Black is coached by South African born Phillip Holiday, who as IBF World Lightweight champion, defeated Jeff Fenech by a knockout in the second round of the fight that turned out to be the Australianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last before he retired. In the Golden Gloves final Ryan defeated the Queenslander 16-11 on points.

eating habits, training, preparation and just the general understanding of the sport and it is paying dividends,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Perhaps for the first time Ryan finished a fight as strongly as he started.â&#x20AC;? Phillip will now look for a further three bouts for his promising youngster before the end of the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That will give him a career total of 40 fights and that should put him in good stead for the national championships in Hobart in early February,â&#x20AC;? he added.

Weather cancels major off road racing event but Renmark driver Brad Gallard...

Trusts gut feeling ■ THE Goondiwindi Motor Association is at odds with the Off Road racing gods. The association’s media release last Saturday afternoon said it all. “It is with great regret and a heavy heart that we must advise, that despite the best efforts from all of our hard working volunteers, the off road racing gods have decreed that the 2011 Australian Championships ended at round four, the ARB Pines Enduro,” the release stated. Yet only two days earlier the association had said those same gods had been shining on the Goondiwindi 400, the final leg of the championships, with two large storm cells passing five kilometres north and south of the track producing torrential rain while only a welcome sprinkling, ‘a blessing’, had fallen on the race venue itself. But the rain came back. On Friday the association announced that after heavy falls, overnight contingency plans were in place. On Saturday morning organisers said they were working on a new format for the 60 or so leading off road racing teams that had headed for the Queensland border town for the classic event. Come midday however, further heavy rain and those heavy hearts signified the cancellation of the event with the SA Peter Kittle Motor Sport team, of David Fellows and Mark Bergamin

■ BIG RACE: Renmark off road competitor Brad Gallard decided not to attend a major event recently, due to predicted weather forecasts. His decision was justified when the event was cancelled.

Big wins early in baseball ■ IT DID not take long for Steve Dack to have an impact on local baseball upon his return to the Loxton team. The former state junior representative starred on the mound and produced four safe hits as Loxton defeated Renmark 10-4 in the opening round of the season at Renmark last Friday night. Others to play a big part in the Loxton victory included Josh Voigt and Roger Taylor, while that consistent pair David Grenfell and Stefan Best stood out for the Angels. Loxton’s season will be watched with interest as its newly introduced B Grade team also won 14-6 against Renmark, suggesting there is now some substantial depth in its camp. In the other A Grade clash, Berri and Barmera resumed their rivalry with a heated contest at Glassey Park. Berri’s key pitcher Nick Kuhn appeared to have left his arm at the recent SA Country Championships

with their Jimco, therefore defending their national title. This was shocking luck for the race organisers and the sport, as last year the event was also cancelled but much earlier because of the Queensland floods. On that occasion the racing teams had ample notice that the ‘Gundy’ was off but this year, of course vehicles from Queensland, NSW, Victoria, Northern Territory, Western Australia and South Australia had already arrived in the town and were ready to race.

I woke up with a gut feeling about the Goondiwindi weather and made the call.

Apart from the disappointment at the cancellation, the costs to the Goondiwindi Association and the racing teams would be considerable. One team that did save the expense of a disappointing trip however was our own Brad Gallard and Scott Modistach with their extreme 2WD class Geiser Bros Trophy Truck. Keeping an eye on the weather is part of Gallard’s regular job and he said “last Tuesday morning I woke up with a gut feeling

about the Goondiwindi weather and made the call that I would not go”. The trophy truck was prepared and sitting in the shed ready to roar but on Wednesday morning Gallard telephoned the race organisers to withdraw. “They were gutted and I understand I copped some flak over the decision as they were building a lot of the event around the truck’s appearance,” he said. “But as it turned out I made the right call. “I was the only one amongst 63 cars to pull out because of concerns over the weather.” Over the years Gallard has been not only an outstanding performer in the various motorsports he has undertaken but also a person that has gone out of his way to support and promote the sport itself. And you can be certain that will continue. But for now what will happen with the truck all spruced up ready to go? “We may head for the Show ‘n’ Shine at Berri,” Gallard said. “Other than that it will be the new season at Easter.” And by the way, Gallard agreed that a number of people would have lost money because of the Goondiwindi cancellation. “But the town itself would have done okay,” he said. “Imagine all of those people sitting around for a few days with nothing to do but wait.”

COVERED New towers now live at Alawoona, Yinkanie, Moorook, Cooltong and Glossop. ■ TALENT: Skilled sportsman Josh Voigt, who is also a drag racer and footballer, has made an impressive start in Riverland A grade baseball’s 2011/12 season, playing for Loxton. for a time but more than made up for it with the bat, getting three runners home with a huge hit over the left field fence at the bottom of the first. Barmera Lakers were reportedly under manned and under done for the opening of the season but their B Grade success,

a 16-3 demolition of Berri, contradicted that somewhat. The next round of matches are Lyrup against Berri at Renmark and Barmera versus Loxton at Glassey Park in B grade and in the A grade Renmark at home to Berri and Loxton against Barmera at the Park.

Riverland bowls teams nominate for national mixed tournament ■ A SEASON or so ago, ace Berri husband and wife bowling couple Kerry and Dennis Treloar made the Australian finals of a major event, the AER Mixed Pairs Challenge, held in Shepparton. Billed as one of the most popular events on the bowling calendar, the competition supports the work of the Alcohol Education Rehabilitation Foundation.

Clubs from all over Australia register for the competition and this year Berri is involved again as entries apparently pour in from far and wide. The Challenge starts at local club level, proceeds to state finals and then this season will return to Shepparton for the national finals. It was therefore a formidable effort when the Tre-

loars won their club event, defeated other country and metropolitan winners in Adelaide in the state finals and went off to the finals in Victoria. The event is now in its sixth year with SA teams finishing with two wins and two second places so far. Queensland has also chalked up two wins and ACT OPTA1363_A5 10/11 PTA1363_A5 10/11 one.

Date: Monday 24th October 2011 Time: From 6.00pm Venue: Berri Resort Hotel, Riverview Drive, Berri Catering: Light refreshments
