n frustrated: Loveday 4x4 Adventure Park owner Tony Whateley is facing the prospect of being forced to pull down the Loveday Tavern and ultimately close the venue until he can find in excess of $500,000 to rebuild. Photo: brad perry

out of options THE Loveday 4x4 Adventure Park is facing a long closure period if it cannot gain exemption from State Government planning regulations which would basically see the park’s centrepiece, the Loveday Tavern, demolished and rebuilt. Under the state’s building code, the Tavern must be further structurally sound, require five disabled concreted carparks, an emergency fire exit and disabled

toilets to be installed. Loveday 4x4 Adventure Park owner Tony Whateley said the requirements mean the Loveday Tavern would have to be pulled down and rebuilt at a cost he cannot afford. “The Tavern is fine as an implement shed, fine as a workshop, structurally safe and structurally sound but as soon as it’s a public place, it’s not,” he said.

BRAD PERRY “We’ve asked what we need to do and all the work that has to be done to get it up to scratch means pulling it down and rebuilding it out of heavier materials. “What I am up against is a

building code that is designed for the Myer building, Royal Adelaide Hospital and all things like that and I fit into their category.” Following frustrating years as a vegetable farmer, Mr Whateley decided to turn his property into an area for four wheel drive events in 2006. Since then an estimated 50,000 people have attended a number of events at the park, attracting

visitors from across Australia and bringing in much needed funds for the region. If Mr Whateley is forced to demolish the iconic Tavern, he said it would be heartbreaking and would not only hurt the park’s supporters but also local businesses that benefit from events held there.

Let’s save adventure park THE Riverland must do everything in its power to ensure the Loveday 4x4 Adventure Park does not close. While State Government regulations are in place for a reason, the Loveday Tavern is a local icon that cannot be demolished. During my visit to the adventure park, owner Tony Whateley took me for a spin around his extensive acreage. The scenery is stunning. The areas are open for camping to the public and are kept in top condition by Tony. Not only is the park a haven for motoring enthusiasts and a tourist attraction, this area would surely be one of the Riverland’s most beautiful spots. For Tony to have to shut his property off from the public, there would be consequences for the Riverland. Currently many businesses benefit from an influx of tourists either attending events or camping at the site. The numbers and support for the park are impressive. We must all stand up and support Tony in his bid to keep the park open. Let’s not let this thriving adventure park slip away and leave us wondering what if?

Our top citizens By CALLUM TRIFONOFF LOCAL historian Heather Everingham has been rewarded for her community service being announced as the Renmark Paringa Council Citizen of the Year as part of the Australia Day Awards. For over 25 years, Mrs Everingham has contributed to her district with a large passion for local history. She also has given solid contributions to the Renmark Paringa Council’s educational, sporting, service and civic bodies. Mrs Everingham said the citizen of the year award is a big surprise. “When you get the award you think ‘why me?’” she laughed. “There’s lots of people out there doing lots of things to do with aged people and fundraising and I was a bit

n Heather Everingham has been named citizen of the year. surprised.” While passionate about looking back in time, Heather is also interested in the future of local tourism. “If we’re talking about developing tourism for the future then there’s a real niche to be explored in introducing people to their history, to their local history and in particular to the broader history of this area,”

she said. “For me, history is a real passion. “It’s something I find satisfying but I also get a tremendous feeling out of introducing people to their own family history.” Former local Rebecca Richards was named Renmark Paringa Council Young Citizen of the Year. The PS Industry Centenary birthday celebrations, held in April won Community Event of the Year. Meanwhile, the Loxton Waikerie Council announced retiring Loxton High School principal Kent Spangenberg as its Citizen of the Year last night. Youngster Ian Crambrook won Young Citizen of the Year, while the magnificent Loxton Christmas Lights Festival took out Event of the Year.

Balloon event proposal By BRAD PERRY THE future of the Riverland Balloon Fiesta will be discussed early next year with the Renmark Paringa Council to present a new proposal to the South Australian Balloon and Airship Club. Feedback from a survey of local accommodation businesses revealed hosting the balloon event on the October long weekend was not the ideal time. Renmark Paringa Council chief executive officer Tony Siviour said there are several options on the table in regards to the event and

he said until talks are held, the Riverland Balloon Fiesta future in the region is not set in stone. “We’re looking at a variety of different things, whether it might be biennial, whether it might be at a different time of the year and if it was biennial, whether it would be quite a bit larger, so we’re looking to expand the program,” he said. “Because the Balloon Fiesta is held on a long weekend, generally they (accommodation outlets) thought they would be booked up just through people coming up on a long weekend.

“So that was some feedback that we took on board and thought maybe we look to have it on a weekend that isn’t a long weekend and our accommodation isn’t fully booked.” As part of the proposal it is understood council looked at improving the event design, marketing and evaluation. “We need to weigh up when it is, what weekend it is and whether it is better off being biennial or annually,” Mr Siviour said. “Until we speak to them, we’ve got no commitment on what we are actually going to do.”

Protection needed as fruit fly season begins TO AVOID fruit fly being brought into the Riverland during the 2012 fruit fly season, South Australians are being encouraged to protect their backyard. Biosecurity SA’s manager of plant and food standards Geoff Raven said it was crucial the state’s half a billion dollar horticultural industry is protected from people inadvertently bringing fruit fly into South Australia. “It’s not just about maintaining our enviable fruit fly free status, it also means we can continue to enjoy having backyard fruit trees and vegetable gardens that we’re confident are fruit fly, maggot free,” Mr

Raven said. “People interstate don’t have that luxury, so we need to jealously guard that status.” Efforts to protect the state from fruit fly harm were boosted by the opening of a new quarantine station in Yamba recently. “While fruit fly is obviously a major focus at this time of the year, our surveillance officers continue to look for other biosecurity threats, ranging from flora and fauna being brought into SA, to hay and fodder, prohibited plants, right through to bees in hives which could threaten local apiary activities,” Mr Raven added.

Waikerie Hotel looks to make use of institute THE Waikerie Hotel will discuss with the Loxton Waikerie Council to use the Waikerie Institute for future functions and conferences as part of its rebuild. Following the September fire at the hotel, chairman Graeme Thompson raised the idea as part of concepts for the hotel rebuild. A report in the council agenda written by chief executive officer Peter Ackland for tomorrow’s meeting states the concept may include an upgrade of the institute, located across fro the hotel, to cater for the hotel’s needs. He said the concept is not a firm proposal. Mr Thompson will seek further discussion with council about the concept. Mr Ackland said there are obvious community issues associated with using the Institute, including the running of traditional events such as Santa’s Cave. brought to you by..

Interstate businesses enquire about local developments

Riverland interest could see investment boom

NO appointment necessary

REPORT BY

BRAD PERRY THE Riverland has experienced an increasing number of enquiries for commercial, tourism and domestic development opportunities in the past 12 months. The three major Riverland councils have revealed the extent of enquiry as the region bounces back from the drought and tough economic times. The Renmark Paringa Council has had enquiries from Melbourne, Mildura and the Northern Territory interested in commercial, community services and tourism development in recent months. The reasons for the interest includes supermarket, hardware, outdoor landscaping, restaurant, medical centre and holiday apartment opportunities. While Renmark Paringa Council Mayor Neil Martinson said many of the enquiries are nothing more than a phone call asking about available land and opportunities, there are signs of economic growth. Investors have also lapped up country living and residential land, with almost 250 allotments over seven subdivisions in Renmark. “That’s a good sign of growth and a good sign of economic investment in the area and confidence in the community as well,� Mr Martinson said.

■GROWTH: Renmark Paringa Council Mayor Neil Martinson at residential land in Renmark which is for sale. “As part of some of those general enquiries we have had are people making enquiries in relation to other possibilities of some other commercial properties within Renmark itself. “There is still quite a few empty shops within the CBD in Renmark however a lot of those shops have actually relocated to the plaza.� It has been a busy year for Berri Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton, who has met with a number of groups from the region and outside, looking to create new business in the area. There was a lot of enquiry into the former Fletcher’s Freighters building before it sold, according to Mr Beaton. “I think it (enquiry) shows the confidence in the region

and if it can also support the businesses that are already here and draw more people to them instead of people having to go to Adelaide or Mildura for their services, that’s good,� he said. “The way things have been with the global financial crisis you can have investors one day and gone the next. “I think it’s important for the council to keep pursuing people to come in and pursue the voids that we’ve got...and create some more employment opportunities in the region.� While Loxton Waikerie Council has been focusing on strengthening local businesses over the past 12 months, chief executive officer Peter Ackland said contact has been made from businesses about investing in the region.

“We’ve had a few contacts about people interested in commencing businesses and we followed through with those as much as we can,� he said. “The main one was a business that is prominent throughout the state. “Our main focus has been, in the past six months, to look at how we might support our existing businesses grow as they come out of the back of the drought. “The fact the economy is starting to look a little bit more positive in the region, yes, we would hope there would be people looking at us for investment but also particularly around how they might want to look at our region for retirement or pre-retirement opportunities.�

Basin Plan set to be hot topic during Opposition Leader’s visit STATE Opposition Leader Isobel Redmond will visit the region today to discuss water and health issues, with the Murray Darling Basin draft plan set to be a hot topic. Ms Redmond will attend a South Australian River Communities meeting in Barmera this morning and she will also meet with local health advisory councils, business leaders and a farming property during the visit. “With the draft Murray Darling Basin Plan out I wanted to get some feedback from whoever I can get feedback from about that up in the area,� Ms Redmond told the Riverland Weekly. Ms Redmond said she does not believe Premier Jay Weather-

ill will pursue a High Court challenge over the plan. “On day one Jay Weatherill came out and said nothing less than 4000 gigalitres and we are going to challenge in the High Court,� she said. “When we got to the last day of Parliament, we were asking about this and Jay seemed to be backing away from those things at a million miles an hour. “So I’m bringing up a copy of the Hansard of what he said because I don’t necessariliy think he’s still headed down that path at all.� SARC spokesperson Ben Haslett said Ms Redmond’s trip to the region will be an opportunity to highlight the key points from the

basin plan which could potentially effect the Riverland. “What we want to do is, as leader of the Opposition, ensure Isobel Redmond understands the key things in the plan as it stands that will affect our region and the state,� he said. “Make sure she understands that while we appreciate the need for a plan, we also think a plan needs to be equitable and at the moment we are still working on achieving equity for South Australia.� Mr Haslett said a big decision regarding the group’s direction will be made by SARC during today’s meeting.

sions on a trial only basis for the remainder of December and will be monitoring numbers to determine if the sessions will continue into the new year.” Mrs Yard said she would be devastated if the morning lap session was closed permanently and she urged swimmers to attend. “That's the one thing that kick starts my day,” she said. “If the session closed it would be a sad day.” Hayden Stoeckel Swimming Pool manager Wayne Mackellar said the original ruling to close the session was a business decision based on an assessment of numbers in the first five weeks of the season. “We assess the morning lap swimming, which is a voluntary program put on by the YMCA,” he said. “We were not receiving any kind of support, our maximum numbers were around two per

day, which is just an enormous expense for very little return. “It's always difficult to change things but again, at the end of the day, there is a business component too and when you are getting two swimmers that bring a total income of around seven dollars to the pool and you are paying $50 for that same period for staff, you can see the mathematics, it just doesn't add up.” Mr Mackellar said he would like to see a high number of swimmers attend the morning lap swimming sessions at Berri. “We are hoping to achieve the numbers between 10 and 20 and if we did that then it is certainly justified,” he said. “Part of the decision on actually reopening again...and giving it a further trial was based on the fact the weather has had an unusually chilly start and that may have kept people away.”

Bad reception for elderly A NUMBER of Riverlanders have been unable to pick up the new digital channels, which were made available last week. Elderly residents have especially been left unable to access the channels, with several requiring a high definition set top box or television. Local electronics business owner George Tastanellis said he has had been called to jobs where residents had

failed to upgrade equipment to receive the channels. “People that have had their standard definition boxes haven’t been able to get three of the new stations,” he said. “If they want to get all six they have to have a high definition television or a high definition set top box otherwise it’s not going to happen.” While the signal from the

newly constructed WIN TV tower has been good, according to Mr Tastanellis, many older residents are unable to cope with the technology. “Many older people have got an old analogue television and they’ve got a set top box and they are running around with two or three remote controls,” he said. “It is very hard for them. “Some people have also got the wrong antennas.”

Rate cuts boost buyer’s market By BRAD PERRY LOCAL real estate agents are expecting house sales to rise early in the new year on the back of two recent interest rate cuts. The drop in rates has been a welcome relief for local agents, with more interest now being shown from people moving to the region looking for a lifestyle change. LJ Hooker Berri Principal Iris Williams said if interest rates had risen the situation would be completely different. “We are steadily selling and we wouldn't have been if the interest rates had gone the other way,” she said. “The investor now is starting to come back into the market which is good to see. “Also, I believe with this recent interest rate (drop) and talk of more going to be reduced, the investor will definitely come back

into the market because we've got good investment and the return on the money they invest in the Riverland is quite substantial.” Mrs Williams said many outsiders are enquiring about properties in the region. “We are also selling to people who are coming back to the Riverland to live or people from the city who are coming up here because they want the lifestyle,” she said. “I expect in the new year to see a lot more movement than what there has been.” Ray White Renmark Principal Mark Cresp said the November and December interest rate cuts have helped bring buyer confidence back into the market. “The interest rate cuts will be a welcome relief and it will be a big step in getting buyer confidence

back into the market place and especially helpful to the new home buyer,” he said. “Housing affordability has always been the big issue and at the moment, across the board, prices are down and interest rates are down and I think it represents the best affordability we've seen in a long, long time. “I really think this could be the catalyst that we need to get things moving.” Marschall First National Real Estate's Jennifer Nitschke said the drop in interest rates has been great timing leading up to Christmas. “The enquiry and people wanting to have a look has definitely picked up and through that enquiry a lot more offers are being made,” she said. Lin Andrews Real Esate has also sold several local properties in recent months, a sign of an improving market.

High percentage of local students seek university degree By CALLUM TRIFONOFF WITH Riverland students set to receive year 12 results in the coming days, many have their eyes on studying at university. Three local schools have confirmed positive numbers of students aiming to study in the coming year. Glossop High School principal Bevin Brooks said a high number of year 12 students want to gain university degrees. “We'd be looking at about 45 students going to university,” he said. Mr Brooks said students have shown great commitment to pursue higher education. “It shows that they're getting a good grounding in the school and they're making wise decisions,” he said. “One is the notion that the higher the education, the better lifestyle you're likely to have. “The other one is the sense of tradition. “People feel that if you've got the ability, you should go for it.” Renmark High School principal Paul Wilton predicts around 35 year 12 students will enrol in uni-

■ HIGHER EDUCATION: Loxton High School principal Kent Spangenberg said more than half of the school’s year 12 students are hopeful of attending university next year. versity next year and said the diversity of courses is pleasing. “I know that we've got a large number of students who use their bonus points to get them into university,” Mr Wilton said. “I think singularly, teaching is the one most have got into. “Then you've got engineering and arts or science degrees. “It's very diverse.” Retiring Loxton High School principal Kent Spangenberg said the school's yearly average of students going to university was up to 60 per cent. He said the high num-

bers are a reflection on quality education offered in the Riverland. “Schools in the Riverland have a very clear pathway for students to be able to enter university,” he said. “Young people also look forward to urban living. “Many of our students use (university) to gain qualification in the profession.” Mr Spangenberg confirmed engineering and teaching were the most popular courses chosen by Loxton High students. “A number of our students choose to study law

as well,” he said. “Every year or so we get a student who's gained entry into medicine.” Meanwhile, Riverland apprenticeships and traineeships in 2011 are on par with last year, with around 430 locals undertaking the training option. Business SA chief executive officer Peter Vaughan said it is vital for business es to invest in training, development and other key initiatives. “We would always like to see more people undertaking traineeships and apprenticeships,” Mr Vaughan said. “People are our most important resource.” Mr Vaughan apprentice and trainee numbers need to continue to increase for the betterment of South Australia and the region. “South Australia's strength in a number of existing and emerging industries will see a growing demand for a skilled workforce,” he said. “There are many opportunities for skilled workers, and more mature age workers are undertaking apprenticeships to upskill and enter positions where their expertise is in demand.”

Popular park faces closure ■ From Page 1 “To start with if they turn around and say to me this has to come down, I will just shut the gate because I can’t do it,” he said. “I can’t afford to spend that sort of money. “If I do rebuild it to their specifications we lose our character, it’s gone, it’s just another city pub look.” Mr Whateley said he has looked into applying for the $20 million Riverland Susatainble Futures Fund. “I can’t get access to the Riverland Futures Fund, I tick every single box they need except I’m not in a council area, this is out of districts,” he said. Mr Whateley is also still trying to have the land rezoned, spending around $50,000 on plans, applications and consultants. “If I don’t get my development plan approved, they will say the property is rated for farming and that’s all you can do,” he said. As a last minute option, Mr Whateley said he will no

longer use the tavern for that purpose in a bid to keep the park open. “What we are looking at at the moment is turning this (the Tavern) into a workshop and building a four metre by four metre shed there with a bar across the front,” he said. “But you lose the stage, you lose so much and this is the centre piece of the race track.” The park’s supporters have expressed outrage at plans to rebuild the Tavern with hundreds venting their frustration on the attraction’s Facebook page. “Everyone is 100 per cent behind what I do,” Mr Whateley said. “They are all wanting to do working bees and things like that but how can you have a working bee to do what needs to be done? “It’s not about chipping out weeds and things like that it’s major construction. “Everyone loves it here, everyone comes here and it’s like a second home to them and you hear so many people and see the comments

on Facebook. “They don’t ever want to lose it and it’s recognised as one of the best places around.” If Mr Whateley is able to overcome the hurdles facing him and keep the park open, he is expecting to attract up to 70,000 people per year in around five years time. Not only is the adventure park a 4x4 playground but Mr Whateley offers camping on his 8000 acre property, which hugs the river. He said if the park was to close, camping access would also no longer be available.

THE future of Lameroo’s two major service clubs is in serious jeopardy due to a lack of members. The Lameroo Rotary Club and Apex clubs have both seen a steady decline in member numbers to the extent where both are now facing uncertain futures. While rotary club president Doug Koch said the lack of numbers will not force the clubs to “fall over tomorrow”,

he said the shortage has made hosting events challenging. “We just don’t want to get to a stage where we have no members,” Mr Koch said. Mr Koch said volunteer numbers began to drop off a decade ago. “Our rotary club’s been going since the early 1970s and back then we had well over 30 members,” he said. “Then probably 10 years ago, we had around 20 members. “It slowly declined.”

Lameroo clubs’ member shortage By CALLUM TRIFONOFF

■ THREAT: The Tavern at Loveday 4x4 Adveture Park may have to be demolished and rebult due to State Government planning regulations and (inset) park owner Tony Whateley who is frustrated about the process.

Service clubs in Lameroo receive support from the community but residents appear unwilling to sign on, with the rotary club having just nine members. “We’re trying to make people realise that service clubs do a lot for the community,” Mr Koch said. “To make clubs function you’ve got to have a few more members.” The Lameroo Apex Club was unavailabe for comment.

Christmas decorations to stay By BRAD PERRY DESPITE the economic situation in the Riverland, local councils have again this year allocated thousands of dollars to decorate towns with Christmas decorations. As interstate councils refuse to put Christmas decorations in streets due to a lack of funds, Riverland councils have vowed to continue providing festive decorations regardless of the financial position. With the Berri Barmera Council attempting to rid of debt, chief executive officer

David Beaton said other options have been taken to ensure Christmas decorations remain on the streets of Berri and Barmera. “We've made some of them (decorations) in house this year as a way to make sure we can save a bit of money and they would be well built and we could use them again in the future,” he said. Mr Beaton said council would never refuse to put decorations up at Christmas. “I think when you get away from the traditional things and don't do them, you can be a bit too mean for

your own good,” he said. Renmark Paringa Council chief executive officer Tony Siviour said a similar amount of festive decorations are allocated to the town's streets each year. “I think it's still important we celebrate Christmas in our region, particularly during difficult times,” he said. “It's not a huge component of our operating budget and it's not for a large period of time.” Mr Siviour said council already implements the cost saving strategy of having

Christmas lights on timers. The installation of Christmas decorations in the main streets of Loxton and Waikerie is the first sign that the holiday period is close, according to Loxton Waikerie Council chief executive officer Peter Ackland. “Quite obviously it's a message that we are coming to the point of the year where generally people can take a few days off and reflect on what's happened in the past year and look forward to the new year,” he said. “It's all part of the atmosphere in the community.”

Local DJ to play with international stars By BRAD PERRY BARMERA DJ Andrew 'Sarez' Sarakinis knows an opportunity to play with international music sensation Calvin Harris does not come around often. While the talented DJ has performed with a number of big names over the years, Andrew is looking forward to playing alongside Calvin Harris in Adelaide early next month. “Just to meet him and to see him live on stage is great but to be actually on the bill to support him is just something extra special,” Andrew said. “It's not everyday you get to do warm up sets for a massive international superstar like Calvin Harris.” Andrew will also perform at his third Adelaide Summadayze on New Year’s Eve, an event he thoroughly enjoys. “Summadayze has only

been in Adelaide for three years and I've been lucky enough to be part of all three shows,” he said. “Just getting the booking was a big thing for me three years ago and even now it's still a big thing because only a handful of Adelaide DJs get selected to represent Adelaide at the big festival.” Despite playing in front of thousands of people at bigger shows, Andrew said he will continue to DJ in the

Riverland. “I wouldn't leave my shows in the Riverland,” he said. “That's where I started and the scene down here is really good and really big and I feel I can contribute a lot more in the years to come as well. “We've got a lot of young talented DJs coming up so it's just exciting stuff at the moment in the Riverland. “We'll be having some pretty big acts coming this way in the next year that I am working on.” Andrew said he is looking forward to a vibrant future in the music industry. “With my DJing career, I am just lucky enough, 15 years later, to still be getting booked for these big gigs,” he said. “Just to have a career that involves being around music and listening to music, being in the dance scene, is just something very special.”

RENOWNED Riverland business Almondco Group has come away with a major coup at the 49th Australian Exporter Awards last week. Almondco received the regional exporter award at a ceremony in Queensland and general manager Brenton Woolston (pictured) said the win is acknowledgement of the hard work put in by the company and a reward for its growers. Almondco achieved $38 million in export sales for the 2010 season.

“That represents about 50 per cent of our sales last year that were exported to over 35 different countries,” Mr Woolston said. Since the company started exporting in 1996, Almondco has escalated its export numbers and Mr Woolston said the Renmark business plans to continue its strong export record. “We've escalated our exports over the past three years in particular,” he said. “There's certainly potential for growth for business based on the amount of trees that are contracted to

Almondco for marketing, so our domestic market is also enjoying some good growth. “It's been a very difficult time particularly over the last two years with exchange rates but Australia produces more than it actually consumes so exporting has to happen.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Christmas hamper denied I WAS more than a little disappointed, in fact I was quite shocked, last week when I called the Chaffey Community Centre in Renmark to register for a Christmas hamper and was flatly refused help because it was no longer November. It was December 2 when I made the call and had called at different times during November only for the phone to ring out and there was no answering machine to take a message. Caring for three kids aged seven, five and three and for a partner who has long-term health problems, as well as suffering a family crisis, I’m sure most people can understand that registering for my Christmas hamper was not the only thing on my mind. After pleading with staff at the community centre and explaining that our family was experiencing a crisis (I even gave them the name of the government support group who could verify the situation), they still refused to help saying that the registrations were now closed and there was nothing they could do to help. I find this very worrying as now I have something else to deal with in how to give my kids, who have already missed out on so much this year, a Merry Christmas too. If a family is suffering a crisis, they should never be refused help or ignored, especially by the local community centre. The fact that I was flatly refused help and then given a contact number for a local church who “may be able to help� is just not acceptable. A crisis can happen at any time and I would have thought that those making donations to the Christmas Appeal would like to know that they are going to help families who are really in need this Christmas, not just those who made it into the computer system on time. When something such as this happens I like to remind myself that even though we don’t have many material possessions this Christmas, we have love and love is the only answer. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and happy New Year. Lisa, Renmark.

PATS reimbursement FOLLOWING the Riverland Weekly’s article (PATS Backflip Sees Loxton Retain Funds, December 1), I would like to clarify that Country Health SA (CHSA) has not changed our policy regarding the Patient Assistance Transport Scheme (PATS) reimbursement to residents in Loxton.

The increase in subsidy for Loxton residents was the result of an automatic update to the mapping data used by the online distance calculator, not public reaction. This update will continue to occur every six months and may result in an adjustment to subsidies as improvements to roads can reduce the drive time. CHSA has worked closely with the Loxton and Districts Health Advisory Council over the past six months and we were more than happy to assist with this important community information session. Nino DiSisto, Director of PATS, CHSA, attended the public meeting to ensure community members received accurate answers to their questions. A number of improvements have been made to PATS since July 2011 to make the process faster, fairer and more consistent for all patients across country South Australia. The comfort and safety of our patients is important to CHSA and we will continue to keep patients apprised of any changes made to PATS. Further information about PATS is available from www.sahealth. sa.gov.au and patients are encouraged to submit their individual questions so they can receive a personalised answer. Professor Belinda Moyes, Chief Executive Country Health SA.

Natural Resources Matter

Christmas lights response I AM writing in answer to (No Christmas Lights, December 8). The Loxton Christmas Lights Committee hand delivers letters to all homes in Santa’s Walk, Drabsch Street and Westbrook Avenue areas offering paintings to place in their garden. It is up to those people to light up the paintings and add lights. Paintings are also offered to any other home on the tourist bus route but they need to contact us to arrange for that to happen. We have 10 ladies who work on those paintings for six months of the year. Paintings are allocated to homes depending on what type of painting they would like. After allocating, paintings are loaded onto trailers one night and the next night delivered by 30 volunteers to homes in allocated areas. The Loxton Waikerie Council financially supports our committee so that we can provide new paintings each year and decorate our town. We have a major raffle as a fundraiser and donations are always welcome. To (name and address supplied), I commend you for your enthusiasm in wanting to be part of the Loxton Christmas Lights Festival and I would like to offer you Christmas lights for your garden which are surplus to my needs. We will have your home shining brightly.

Natural resources management is caring for our land, water, plants and animals – balancing people’s needs with those of nature. Its time to keep an eye out for some significant weed threats to our region.

The Hunt for Golden Dodder This serious parasitic weed is found predominantly along the River Murray corridor. It can be a major threat to lucerne and small seed crops. It is easily identified with thin bright yellow thread-like stems that scramble over its host plant in a tangled mass. Golden Dodder actively grows in the summer months. Funding is available to control this plant in priority areas and the NRM Board will control plants found on crown land.

New Aquatic Weed Alert A new weed to watch for is Elodea canadensis, also known as Canadian Pond Weed. This is a significant aquatic pest and recent flood events may have increased its distribution. The NRM Board is asking river users to keep a look out for this weed and report any infestations.

Creeping Khaki Weed on the March Another summer weed to be on the lookout for is Khaki Weed. This small creeping perennial ground cover plant produces a mass of small fluffy innocent looking flowers that develop into needle sharp spiny burrs. The burrs can injure and cause extreme discomfort in people, livestock and dogs, and can be a serious contaminant in wool, hay or other fodder. Burrs spread through stock movement and vehicle traffic. It has been found in isolated locations across the Mallee and Coorong area and most recently near Clayton. New small infestations will be treated by NRM Board staff to prevent spread.

African Rue, One Tough Weed African Rue is a small invasive perennial shrub that is extremely competitive. It looks like it would be good fodder, being lush and green, but is unpalatable to grazing stock. It will eventually displace desirable pasture species if left unchecked. Chemically control during the summer growth phase. It may need several follow up treatments. Its deep tap root and ability to cope with low unreliable rainfall makes it a difficult weed to control once established. There are nine known sites in the MDB NRM region; most are located in the Rangelands area. If the Board is notified of a possible new infestation then staff will inspect the site and provide assistance on the best control options.

AND ANOTHER THING...

Parents graduate FIVE young parents will become peer educators following their graduation from the Riverland headspace Talking Realities Program last Friday. The young women celebrated their achievements at the SALT Church, Waikerie, last week, after six months of training. The Talking Realities program is aimed at reducing the rate of unplanned teen pregnancy via peer education.

This year Riverland headspace has partnered with the Waikerie High School Independent Learning Centre, which provides flexible, supported learning options for young people trough the Innovative Community Action Network (ICAN). The young parents involved completed six units of Certificate Three in Community Services Work. Part of the program included delivering a detailed

banner presentation that allowed them to share the realities of choosing to become a parent at a young age with high school students. The latest group of graduates are aged 19 to 22 and are pregnant or parenting young children. They credit the training facilities (including an on site crèche) for the success of their training and have formed valuable friendships.

River Murray Advisory Committee tours Pike River THE River Murray Advisory Committee (RMAC) conducted their monthly meeting aboard a local tour boat last month. The Missy Tour Boat took the group through the Pike River to gain an understanding of the anabranch complex and associated floodplain. Proposed rehabilitation activities funded through the Riverine Recovery Project were viewed during the trip. RMAC Chairperson Ms Sheridan Alm said the Riverine Recovery Program works are critical for improving the ecology and management of wetlands on a local scale. In the case of the Pike River and Yatco Lagoon projects, which are very community driven, there will also be improved production efficiencies on farm in these regions. Activities planned for the Pike Floodplain include bridge upgrades and regulating structures to address some of the

During the trip, Commonwealth Environmental Water assistant secretary Dr Simon Banks informed the committee about the approach to the planning and use of Commonwealth environmental water for the protection and restoration of environmental assets in the basin, such as the Pike floodplain.

Carol nights LOXTON community and Barmera community carols will take place this Sunday. The Loxton candlelight carols will be held at the Rotunda in East Terrace beginning at 7.30pm. There will be local singers, choirs, the singing Christmas tree, guest singer Leah Knowling, local schools and a special song from Pastor Tim Klein. The Barmera event will be held in the Bonney Lodge grounds from 7pm, with proceeds going to the Riverland Christmas appeal.

LAMEROO CHRISTMAS PAGEANT

P et s

FEATURE

Caring for a pet duck DUCKS not only have a very friendly temperament but as a pet, can also be a great addition to a family environment. There are a number of duck breeds and it is vital you choose a duck to suit your backyard space. Remember, ducks are not only intelligent but they do require companionship and attention.

■ JOY: Children always enjoy the Lameroo Christmas Pageant.

Feeding ducks

Mallee Christmas ON the eve of Christmas, the Lameroo and surrounding Mallee communities will gather for the town's annual festive pageant. This year the Lameroo Christmas Pageant has changed dates and is now being held next Friday meaning the event will no longer clash with Pinnaroo's pageant. With a wide range of entertainment and activities on offer for the family, the Lameroo Christmas Pageant is set to attract a large crowd. Organiser Chris Mead said he hopes more than 200 children will visit Santa this year with the two Mallee pageants no longer held on clashing dates. “Hopefully we will get a bit more crossover of people,” he said. The parade, consisting of more than 12 floats, will commence down the main street of Lameroo at 6pm with Santa also making an appearance during the event before residing to Santa's Cave. A welcome addition for the this year's pageant is the best decorated bike competition which is expected to be embraced by those in attendance. The viewing of a movie for children at around 8.30pm, the jumping castle, remote control car circuit set-up, fairy floss and glow sticks will all be popular entertainment options for the youngsters. The not-to-be-missed fly-by from a local pilot has been one of the most talked about features of the pageant in previous years and the event will be part of the event again this year. “People were really impressed with that,” Mr Mead said.

Labelled as potentially one of the best pageants in the Mallee town to date, Mr Mead said the event offers a great night out. “It's the last working day of the year, people would have knocked off on Friday,” he said. “It will be nice for everyone to relax after a year's worth of work and enjoy the night.”

Ducks can be fed scraps and leftovers but will still need commercial duck food to ensure it gets the required nutrients. Fresh drinking water is essential and a small pond for the duck to swim in would make it feel more at home.

Environment If you cannot supply a pond, a large bowl will enable the duck to dunk its head to clean its eyes, beak and nostrils. Ensure there is still a dry area for the duck to dry its feet in order for it not to get an infection. Most duck breeds suit larger backyard and will look for snails and slugs in the garden. Ducks should also always have a shelter which cannot be accessed by predators and can keep ducks out of the weather overnight. A bed made of dry straw is also ideal and must be renewed every two days or so. Most ducks will also enjoy company, so you may have to consider adopting a pair of ducks.

■ QUACK: A number of duck breeds are great as pets.

Taking on the role of ‘superwoman’ By AMP Financial Planner Veronica Rutherford* WHETHER they work or stay at home to care for their children, most Mums would agree they often feel like they are taking on too many roles – a fact that has now been confirmed by a new report. According to the latest AMP NATSEM Income and Wealth Report: Race against time – How Australians spend their time, 40 per cent of Australian women revealed they often, or always, feel rushed or pressed for time. Now, more than ever, women are finding there isn’t enough time in the day because they are not only shouldering the bulk of the domestic duties but also working longer hours. The report shows average full-time hours for women have increased from 36.4 in 1985 to 38.6 hours in 2011, while part-time hours for women have also risen steadily over this period from 16.4 to 17.8 hours. In addition to that, the ‘nineto-five’ working week is no longer the status quo, with many women being forced to take on early starts, late finishes and weekend work. Australian women are also doing the lion’s share of the work around the home, spending an average of three hours each day on domestic duties compared to 2.5 hours for men. Women also spend 59 minutes a day caring for children, while men dedicate just 20 minutes to this. So it is clear many women are

taking on the role of ‘superwoman’ as they struggle to balance work, family and social life. However, few women ever stop to think just how much they do every day and whether their families would cope financially without them. This is especially the case if they couldn’t work or care for their kids due to injury, illness or death.

Now, more than ever, women are finding there isn’t enough time in y. the day. According to new research, 62 per cent of Australian mums do not have any life insurance.** Unfortunately it is often put in the too hard basket or perceived as too expensive. However these days insurance does not have to be a big drain on the budget. If cash flow is tight, an affordable way for women to get life insurance, total and permanent disability insurance (TPD) and income protection is through their superannuation, as the premiums come out of the super fund instead of their own pocket.

Income protection inside super has become more attractive in recent years, as more funds are offering a benefit payable to the age of 65. This means a person can receive 75 per cent of their salary up to the age of 65 in the event they can no longer work due to illness or an accident. Previously, it was perceived that only a two year benefit inside super was possible. Women who are not working or working part-time while raising a family can also obtain life and TPD insurance through super. Their partner can make contributions of up to $3000 per year to their superannuation and receive an 18 per cent tax offset. Also lower income earners can take advantage of the government’s super co-contribution scheme, which will match contributions up to $1000. If the finances allow, it’s also wise for women to consider trauma insurance. Trauma insurance is the only insurance which is generally not available inside super, which means the monthly premiums need to come out of a person’s own pocket. It typically covers a person for the “big four” conditions of cancer, heart attack, stroke and coronary by-pass surgery. These account for approximately 85 per cent of all trauma claims, however most policies cover in excess of 40 conditions. It was Dr Marius Barnard who first pioneered heart transplant

surgery with his brother in 1967, along the way identifying the need for an insurance that would pay out a lump sum in the event of organ failure or transplant. So while women go about performing superwoman feats every day as they juggle family, work and social commitments, it’s important to remember no-one is invincible. One day your insurance may turn out to be the best thing you’ve ever done to protect your family.

Charlieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream debut Crows to visit By BRAD PERRY WHEN Riverlander Charlie Holtham entered his first official wakeboarding competition on the weekend, he thought it was a perfect opportunity to test his skills against talented riders. On debut the 10-year-old produced several impressive tricks to claim first place in the rookie division at stop three of Wakeboard SAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season at Renmark. Ecstatic about his performance in his first competition, Charlie told the Riverland Weekly he learnt a lot from the experience and plans to continue to improve his wakeboarding skills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a bit nervous but it was quite fun,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good because I can meet new people and they can help teach me

new tricks.â&#x20AC;? Holtham, who has had a number of lessons from Renmark wakeboarder Ryleigh Pfitzner, will now turn his sights to Wakeboard SAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next official stop at Morgan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a fun sport,â&#x20AC;? Holtham said. Craig Holtham said he was proud to see his son excelling on the water, a place where he has also spent much time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just love being on the river,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get a real buzz out of kids learning new tricks.â&#x20AC;? Craig said there are many benefits to Renmark hosting the wakeboarding event, including the inspirational tricks Charlie was able to witness first hand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just making them excited and the next time they get in the water

RTCA unsure over future of Twenty20 cricket RIVERLAND Turf Cricket Association president Dan Shawyer believes interest in the shortest format of cricket has waned. With just six teams taking part in Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural invitational Twenty20 tournament, Shawyer said he was disappointed with the lack of interest in participating. While he admitted the programming was not ideal, Shawyer said he expected more teams in the Murray and Mallee competitions to show interest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really been that well received,â&#x20AC;? Shawyer said. The six teams who took part in the Twenty20 tournament appeared to enjoy the

day and Shawyer said with more teams involved, there is potential for the competition to be a regular fixture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The standard of cricket wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the best but it was a good day,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it (Twenty20) is right here, right now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to get the programming right and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done that yet.â&#x20AC;? While Berri and Loxton cruised to the final unbeaten, there were upsets from B grade team Cobdogla and Mid Murrayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cadell, while Monash and Renmark were competitive. The Twenty20 final will be held on January 20 under lights at Berri Oval.

they do those tricks,â&#x20AC;? Craig said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just good for the town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more money people drop off in our area, it goes around eventually.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x2013; BORN TO RIDE: Charlie Holtham finished first in his class at the Wakeboard SA event in Renmark on the weekend.

New RFL commissioners appointed â&#x2013; From Page 32 During the meeting, two new RFL commissioners were appointed with Lindon Burns and Terry Wheeldon stepping down. Waikerieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ian Sutton and Renmarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kym Collinson will replace the pair, while Trevor Scott is the new vice-chairman of the league. Other topics to be raised during the meeting included the continued lack of numbers for B grade teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All we can do is address that early in

the new year,â&#x20AC;? Mrs Kruger said. There were also several changes made to Independent Coltsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; laws with teams able to start a match with 14 players, with the option of using extra opposition footballers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take any players that are offered to you, you play with your 14 or whatever youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got and the other side can still fill a full contingent of 18 players,â&#x20AC;? Mrs Kruger added. The 2012 draw will not be set until February.

MORE than 400 Riverland children will be given the chance to meet the Adelaide Crows, with the club choosing to conduct its 2012 AFL community camp in the region. The Adelaide Football Club has planned a trip to the Riverland for February 16 and 17, seven years since it last held a community camp in the region. Crows general manager of football operations Phil Harper visited the Riverland on Monday, announcing the visit from RFL headquarters in Berri. Harper said there will be many fresh faces interacting with the local community during the camp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of change at our club this year,â&#x20AC;? Harper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new coach (Brenton Sanderson), a couple of other new coaches in Dean Bailey and Darren Milburn and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about 14 in the playing

Harper said the community camp is about giving back to regional supporters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The players and the club both enjoy it because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got about 18 per cent of our supporters from country regions and a large contingent from the Riverland who come and support us every week,â&#x20AC;? Harper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So for us to travel and come and see them, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great thing for us and a thank you to them.â&#x20AC;? There will be memorable moments from the two day trip, although they may not beat a showdown in the Riverland in 2004. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last time we were here we even played a game,â&#x20AC;? Harper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mark Ricciuto and Wayne Carey were playing and it was terrific.â&#x20AC;? During the camp players and coaching staff will conduct coaching clinics, school, hospital and aged care visits and hold a training session at Berri.

CHARLIE’S SPORTS GOSS WITH GRAHAM CHARLTON

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

Bowls squad selected ■ OUR Region Four bowls team had an excellent victory over Region Three (Upper North) at Jamestown on Sunday. The annual clash between the two zones serves as a trial game from which selectors choose the squad to play in the Country Round Robin in Adelaide each year. Obviously rejuvenated in 201112, Region Four won the contest 159 shots to 121 after winning three of the rinks and drawing another. Waikerie’s Gary Pursche led his team to a 34-14 victory over the home side’s rink, Andrew Hill (Berri) won 27-24 against Bray and Peter Gageler (Broken Hill) defeated Thompson 35-16, while Loxton’s Peter Kimber finished 24-24 against Brand. Both of the remaining match ups were keenly contested with Berri’s Mark Kubank going down to the Grimes team 21-24 and Freeling’s George Fergusson losing to Leue 18-19. Following the event selectors named the squad for the Adelaide tournament, considering that with the return of some leading players and the inclusion of people like Berri’s Graham King for the first time, the group was a lot more balanced than in recent years. The zone will commence its 2012 campaign at Grange on Tuesday, February 14, followed by Salisbury, West Lakes and Holdfast Bay over the next three days. Players are to arrive at the venues by 9am each day for a 9.30am start. Two matches of 21 ends will be played on the first three days and another on Friday morning. The Region Four squad comprises: Skippers Hill, Kubank, Kimber,

Berri survives hard fought win to top ladder ■ THE benefit of achieving winning rinks in our bowls competitions despite the overall result is really being illustrated in the division one men’s pennant competition. Loxton has two victories and a draw after nine rounds but only trail fourth placed Renmark, with four straight wins, by six points. Berri still leads the ladder on 113 points but for the second Saturday on end did not have it all its own way, scraping in against third ranked Renmark by only two shots, 74-72. And as we mentioned last week, how serious a challenger for the 2011/12 pennant is Waikerie, who destroyed Barmera 102-58 on Saturday after inflicting similar pain on Barmera 108-57 seven days earlier. In division two, the leader board has taken on a new appearance over the past fortnight with

previous leader Renmark dropping two on end, first to 11th placed Barmera and now to rival Loxton RSL. Moorook has now jumped to the head of the list with eight wins from nine outings for 83 points, followed by Loxton RSL 79, Renmark 72, Berri 70, Lyrup 66 and Monash 59. It is an interesting competition but so too is division three green with only 18 points between two Loxton RSL teams with green on top, 78 and blue in sixth spot on 60. The Loxton RSL situation is interesting with new synthetic greens, more teams and all performing strongly after many felt that unwelcome distractions probably took the team’s attention away from a big prize in 2010/11. Possibly a journey up through the grades is not off the club’s agenda further down the track.

Pursche, Gageler and King, Ken Stokes (Berri), Sean Leesue (Renmark), Terry Thurston (Loxton), Wayne Collins, Barry Harden (Waikerie), Phil Ashton (Barmera), Fergusson, Chris Kearns, Justin Morris (Freeling), Geoff Langley, Robert Grope (Nuriootpa), Brian Bowden (Angaston), Paul Uranjek (Lyndoch) and Mark Bloomfield (Broken Hill). Reserves are Roger Davies (Waikerie) and Barry Hooker (Broken Hill) and team managers Paul Griffiths and Kevin Gebhardt.

Looking back at...

Elite football visits ■ NO MATTER which AFL club you support, you would realise the widespread benefits to this region when we are fortunate enough to have one of them amongst us. The Adelaide Crows will be in the Riverland in February and immediately one’s memory goes back to the excitement the club created on its last visit here when the team played a NAB Challenge game against Hawthorn at Berri in 2009, in front of a crowd of more than 6000. But it was probably Port Power’s time in the Riverland for three days in February 2007 that was the most beneficial to thearea, arguably right from our grassroots football to our important tourism industry. The Power players were seen out and about enjoying our river and great facilities, even lawn bowling at Barmera and were loud in their praise for the area and promoted it as an ideal place to come and enjoy yourself. But Port’s AFL Community Camp was not all about just various varieties of play, although they did put on a mini trial in front of a large crowd at Berri and Barmera ovals after earlier training at the grounds. Importantly, though the

club crammed as much as possible into activities that were aimed at the community as a whole. They visited schools large and small, the aged, hospitals and attended a fundraising dinner at the Renmark Hotel, from which part of the proceeds went to an appeal that was benefiting victims of a severe storm in that area. Port players and staff also presented a forum function at the Berri Resort Hotel in coaching, training and administration and addressed our youth on adopting healthy lifestyles. And of course they coached our kids no matter whether they were wearing a Power guernsey or taking the opportunity to flaunt the colours of their fancied AFL team. Yes we should not underestimate the value of these trips into the country by our high profile sporting teams and it is a pity that their busy schedules do not allow them to come more often. But it is our turn come February. This time it is the Crows visiting, so no matter which beanie we are wearing let us do our best to make the club welcome.

The number of local volleyball teams that competed at the Schools Cup in Melbourne.

SPORT

Volleyballers shine against the odds ■ REPEATEDLY over the years when I have looked at the performances of Riverland teams at the annual Australian Volleyball Schools Cup in Melbourne, I have called on the old ‘David versus Goliath’ line. So I am repeating myself again as our local schools have excelled this year in what on paper always appears a mismatch of enormous proportions. Of all of the annual sporting events that effect our region, I believe that over the years this has been my favourite as it has been about much more than just results out on the volleyball courts. The event is huge and this year 465 teams took part coming from all over Australia, New Zealand and Japan. From our area 22 teams competed, not 21 as previously reported. There were twelve from Loxton and nine from Renmark High schools and in another remarkable chapter to an already remarkable story, one team from East Murray Area School. Of course Renmark High School pioneered the Schools Cup adventure in the memorable Stuart Scott era many years ago and in more recent times Loxton has joined the annual pilgrimage into Victoria. Both schools have defied the odds in that time to

win titles at the very highest honours level. I say defied the odds because in many cases it has been like the amateurs against the professionals, our schools with limited attention and local opportunity in the sport, against some fully fledged volleyball schools. Take this year for instance. To be eligible to enter the honours competitions, schools had to appear in the SA State Schools Cup. One of Loxton High’s dedicated teachers Rick Garrard probably explains it best. “It was a matter of our school having too many commitments overall and concentrating on a broader range of activities,” he said. “Not going to the state event meant that the open divisions were the highest competitions we could enter. “Like Renmark we are not just a volleyball school and we look at balance. “For example, here in Loxton we also have our athletics program and things like triathlon and the Pedal Prix.” The best result at this year’s event came from the Loxton open girls division one team that narrowly finished runner-up to Queensland’s Redlands. Loxton High also finished second to its grand final opponent in both the prelimi-

nary pool and top 12 competitions before defeating Santa Sabina in a semi-final. Members of the team were Maddie Moore (captain), Simone Schubert, Tara Learhinan, Chloe Searles, Taylor Haslam, Mary-Ellen Cass, Kathryn Lamattina and Ellie Garrard, with the coach Nadia Kruger and manager Andrew Searles. In the other divisions, Loxton High completed a consistent result overall with most teams finishing in the top 12, including the under 17 boys division one team which finished fifth, division two in sixth and the under 17 girls and under 16 girls division two teams finishing seventh. Renmark also had a number of teams finish in the top 12, including the open division two boys in sixth and the under 15 girls division two team finishing seventh. And now to the under 16 division two boys team from East Murray Area School that finished third in their pool. The team made it to the top 12 stage and then ended up 10th out of 22 teams. I am nominating this for any ‘sporting story of the year’ award. The school only has 26 secondary students but when Leah Uren moved from Loxton High School’s volleyball scene to teach in the Mallee, the Australian Schools Cup dream was born.

SECURITY MEASURES Regulations leave RFL out of pocket By BRAD PERRY THE Riverland Football League will again be forced to spend thousands of dollars on security during next year’s finals in what is being described as a “big concern” to profitability. Liquor licensing and crowd control regulations mean the RFL has no choice but to employ the same security measures as it did in this year’s final series.

This seaons’s security cost more than double what it did in 2010. The topic of security measures at local football was discussed at the Riverland Football League annual general meeting on Monday night. “Financially we made a few dollars (this season) but we did pay out a lot for security for the finals this year and that took a lot of our profit,” RFL chief executive Wendy Kruger said.

“We took a lot of rubbish about all the security that was there but that was a law that we had to follow. “We had to have at least two security guards on the gate as soon as it opened and then another four from about 12.30pm on (for each final). “That is a big concern but we can’t do anything about it.” ■ Continued Page 29
