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
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. â€œThatâ€™s a good sign of growth and a good sign of economic investment in the area and confidence in the community as well,â€? Mr Martinson said.

â– GROWTH: Renmark Paringa Council Mayor Neil Martinson at residential land in Renmark which is for sale. â€œAs 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. â€œThere is still quite a few empty shops within the CBD in Renmark however a lot of those shops have actually relocated to the plaza.â€? 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 Fletcherâ€™s Freighters building before it sold, according to Mr Beaton. â€œI 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, thatâ€™s good,â€? he said. â€œThe way things have been with the global financial crisis you can have investors one day and gone the next. â€œI think itâ€™s important for the council to keep pursuing people to come in and pursue the voids that weâ€™ve got...and create some more employment opportunities in the region.â€? 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.
â€œWeâ€™ve had a few contacts about people interested in commencing businesses and we followed through with those as much as we can,â€? he said. â€œThe main one was a business that is prominent throughout the state. â€œOur 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. â€œThe 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.â€?

Basin Plan set to be hot topic during Opposition Leaderâ€™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. â€œWith 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,â€? 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. â€œOn day one Jay Weatherill came out and said nothing less than 4000 gigalitres and we are going to challenge in the High Court,â€? she said. â€œWhen 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. â€œSo Iâ€™m bringing up a copy of the Hansard of what he said because I donâ€™t necessariliy think heâ€™s still headed down that path at all.â€? SARC spokesperson Ben Haslett said Ms Redmondâ€™s trip to the region will be an opportunity to highlight the key points from the
basin plan which could potentially effect the Riverland. â€œWhat 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,â€? he said. â€œMake 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.â€? Mr Haslett said a big decision regarding the groupâ€™s direction will be made by SARC during todayâ€™s meeting. Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone said it is great to see

Waikerie businesses were effected by the recent storm and the local hotel fire and Riverland West Chamber of Commerce secretary John Sullivan said confidence is beginning to return. “I did hear someone say that trading has been a little bit better than it has been for a while,” he said. “We'd all be happy with a big influx of spenders.” Christmas sales help to keep businesses open and people employed, according to Berri District Business Association president Barry Phillips. “They (businesses) all seem to feel the remaining days leading up to Christmas will be a

The Loxton Chamber of Commerce has also reported positive early signs for Christmas sales.

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, Iâ€™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 â€œmay be able to helpâ€? 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 donâ€™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 Weeklyâ€™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 Santaâ€™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 â€“ balancing peopleâ€™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.
Send your letters to PO Box 1279, Berri, SA, 5343 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Information on the weed species mentioned can be found in factsheets on the Board website at www.samdbnrm.sa.gov.au
If you think that you have discovered a new weed infestation then please contact the SA MDB NRM Board at Murray Bridge on 8532 9100 or Mount Barker on 8391 7500.
