DISUNITY OVER PLAN? Murray Darling Basin Authority chair Craig Knowles believes South Australia’s biggest challenge is itself

AHEAD of tomorrow’s draft basin plan meeting in Renmark, Murray Darling Basin Authority chair Craig Knowles has revealed that he believes the biggest threat facing South Australia is itself. Mr Knowles said meetings in South Australia to date have shown that people want a plan so there is security. Encouraging everyone to attend tomorrow’s meeting, Mr

BRAD PERRY Knowles said South Australia and the Riverland’s biggest challenge, in regards to the basin plan, is its differing views. “I think in South Australia there has to be a bit of a consideration

as to whether or not we make a start on a more secure plan that provides that security that people tell me they want or whether communities want their Premier to go for broke, as he seems to be saying he wants a big number or else,” Mr Knowles said. “It’s a different view to what we’ve picked up in other parts of South Australia in our meetings where people are saying very clearly

to me, let’s just make a start here and let’s get something settled and let’s move on. “I think there is a difference in view and I think that will be the challenge for South Australia in the end.” In a letter to the Riverland Weekly, Premier Jay Weatherill said he is concerned the plan does not adequately recognise South Australia’s responsible use of the river, it will

not do enough to withstand future droughts and it will not protect iconic Ramsar listed sites. “We are working through a detailed analysis of the draft plan but it is clear the burden of returning the river to health must be borne by the upstream states,” he said.

Murray Zircon pushes forward with plans to build $3.5 million facility

EDITORIAL BY

TOMORROW is judgement day. Riverland producers, businesses and community members will converge on Renmark for the Murray Darling Basin Plan draft meeting. This may be the last chance for Riverlanders to stand up and have their say before the plan is set in concrete. Reflecting back over the past few years, there have been so many meetings. The last meeting to be held at the Renmark Greek Orthodox Hall regarding the basin plan created little interest. It was so quiet I think I heard a pin drop. Tomorrow’s meeting will be quite the opposite. The Murray Darling Basin Authority will not know what hit it. In today’s Riverland Weekly, I spoke to Authority chair Craig Knowles about the visit and he welcomed any kind of community engagement. In previous visits to the Riverland, Craig has listened to irrigators, the people of the land and crucial industry identities. It seems he has taken concerns on board. But when Craig arrives in Renmark tomorrow, I would like to see the expression on his face as he witnesses the displays of produce and the number of people in attendance. He will quickly get the impression that the Riverland wants answers very soon.

land but that we’d formulate a commercial lease on that plan so we still retain ownership,� he said. “It (the project) will certainly make Wanbi look a bit different.

By BRAD PERRY KAROONDA East Murray Council has backed plans for the establishment of a $3.5 million facility at Wanbi to accommodate Mindarie Mine workers. Mindarie Mine owners Murray Zircon has applied to lease the currently unused Wanbi Oval, which council owns. A change in land use is required before the agreement can go forward and has been out for public consultation, with feedback closing yesterday. Karoonda East Murray Council chief executive officer Peter Smithson said an 80 bed facility at Wanbi would help the town. “We’d previously resolved to let Murray Zircon use the

It will certainly make Wanbi look a bit different.

“We’re just making sure we go through the proper process with planning approval but it will certainly improve the site and they are also talking about sealing roads and making car park areas.�

Mr Smithson said council is “cautiously optimistic� that the Mindarie Mine will reopen and remain operational, providing much needed funds for Mallee towns. “As you can appreciate previously, when it was Australia Zircon there wasn’t a good history because it went into receivership, whereas Orient Zircon are a major shareholder and they are quite experienced with extracting zircon,� Mr Smithson said. “We’re hopeful this time it will get off the ground and keep going.� Murray Zircon has been working closely with the local community and will hold another meeting at the East Murray Community Centre on March 27.

Despite State Government predictions, water expert expects...

River bank breach A RIVERLAND water expert believes River Murray flows into the region will rise as high as 40,000 megalitres per day breaching river banks. Reports from the State Government suggest River Murray flows in South Australia will not exceed 30,000 megalitres per day. However, Flow on Business principal Tony Sharley said floodwater entering South Australia will see levels rise over river banks. “The next five to six weeks, we will see a significant increase in flows into South Australia,� he said.

■ Flow on Business principal Tony Sharley predicts high flows. “We are now also moving into a period where our water use is being reduced, our storages are all very full, so whilst some of these rains will be captured by some storages, there is a bit of airspace in them. “They will obviously top

up to 100 per cent but there is probably enough rain for this water to actually continue on down the system. “If you go 40,000 (megalitres per day) you are about to breach and that’s when water is just starting to spill out onto the floodplain.� Advice from the Department for Water released last Thursday, subject to weather conditions, suggests flows into South Australia are expected to increase to around 25,000 megalitres per day when maintenance works at the Chowilla coffer dam and Lock 4 are completed.

■ VOTED OUT: Member for Barker Patrick Secker will finish his term when the next Federal election is called. OUSTED Member for Barker Patrick Secker has vowed to continue to serve the people of the electorate until his term expires. Mr Secker was outvoted in Saturday’s pre-selection ballot held at Bordertown, gaining just 78 votes compared to Mount Gambier Lawyer Tony Pasin’s 164 votes, with another candidate Ben Treloar receiving 40 votes. The result means Mr Secker’s role in the Barker electorate, which he has held since 1998, will finish when the next Federal election is called. In a statement, Mr Secker said he “wholeheartedly accepts the decision taken by the members�. “(I) will continue to work in the best interests of the party to see a Tony Abbott elected government at the next election,� he said. “I congratulate Mr Pasin and he has my support. “Barker is a great electorate filled with many great people and it has truly been an honour to serve the people of Barker since 1998 and I will continue to serve the people of Barker right until my term expires. “Everything I have done in this job has been in the best interests of my electorate and the nation and believe that I have played my part to make my local area of Barker a better place.�

Story clarification In a story regarding the use of the former Fletchers Freighters site, it stated that the facility is owned by Hoffy’s Steel, when in fact it is owned by Peter Hoffmann and Tony Moro.

Jaguar club rolls into town

Riverland fruit fly warning BIOSECURITY SA is warning all South Australians to maintain their guard against fruit fly during the long weekend. People travelling to the Riverland over the long weekend are reminded not to bring fruit or fruiting vegetables into the Riverland Fruit Fly Exclusion Zone. Biosecurity SA food and plant standards manager Geoff Raven said hefty onthe-spot fines will apply for those breaking the rules. “People should also remember that besides the permanent quarantine inspection stations at Yamba, Ceduna, Oodla Wirra and Pinnaroo, Biosecurity SA also conducts mobile random roadblocks throughout the state from time to time,” he said.

RENMARK has been tagged as one of the most competitive areas for petrol in South Australia following two months of low prices. Questions have also been raised by the RAA in regards to petrol prices in other Riverland towns following Renmark’s competitive nature. RAA Senior Policy Analyst Christ West said Renmark was second for the cheapest average petrol in the South Australia this year, only behind Port Augusta. “I’d have to say prices in Renmark were extremely competitive for a long period,” Mr West said. “For almost a two month period it was well below the regional average, it was actually on par, if not better, than the city almost every day. “We saw that turn mid February when it returned to pricing levels, which we would have expected, from 138.6 (cents per litre) on February 15 and by February 19, you were seeing 149.9 for petrol.

■ FUEL: Average petrol prices in Renmark are amongst the state’s best this year but the RAA wants to know why other local towns have not followed suit. “When it moved to 149.9 it actually moved in line with a lot of the other centres and it has actually been declining ever since.” There are a number of factors causing such low prices in Renmark, according to Mr West. “I’d have to say that local competitive factors can come into play and just thinking of the main street down there, there are a couple of streets that will compete with each other quite aggres-

sively,” he said. “Obviously they were competing for customers because there isn’t any other reason to be offering extremely low fuel prices. “Transport costs are higher, for a tank delivering to Renmark compared to just around the corner in Adelaide, even factoring in that, it was fair to say it was close to a cost price level in both those two centres (Renmark and Port

Lock Chamber closed 10 - 12 weeks as from 30 January 2012 On behalf of the Murray Darling Basin Authority, SA Water is undertaking extensive essential maintenance on Lock 8 at Wangamma. The lock chamber will undergo a complete refurbishment which is vital to the longevity of the structure. During this period, vessels will be unable to navigate through Lock 8 for approximately 10 to 12 weeks from 30 January 2012.

Augusta) over a period of time.” Mr West said the lack of competition over petrol prices has been noted in other Riverland towns. “It provokes the question from a Riverland point of view, if you can have it in Renmark, why can’t you have it in Loxton or Berri or Barmera for that matter?” he said. “If Renmark motorists can enjoy that then why can’t other centres.” A rise in crude oil prices is expected to be passed on in part to Riverland motorists. “In terms of fuel price movements we have seen around about a nine to 10 cents rise in crude oil prices since the beginning of February,” Mr West said. “Our pump prices are dictated by the international price for petrol and that’s increased rather than the nine to 10 cents, that’s increased five to six cents. “We would only expect for that five to six cents to be passed through and for retailers to not pass on anymore than that because that is the legitimate cost increase.”

By BRAD PERRY RICHARD and Debbie Wardle were supposed to be relaxing on holiday, instead the pair are anxiously waiting to see the result of floodwaters at home in New South Wales. The Wagga Wagga residents, who this week were staying at the Berri Riverside Caravan Park, were waiting on a phone call to find out the situation, with flood levels above 10 metres and expected to peak. While the Wardle’s live on a hillside suburb called Ashmont, where their home is safe, they fear for Wagga Wagga, with the New South Wales

state already affected by floodwater. “My original plan was to come here, we’d been here once before and it’s a lovely place to come,” Mr Wardle said from Berri on Tuesday. “We might not even get home yet, we are just playing it by ear. “What they were worried about is the levee bank, it’s maximum is 11 metres. “If it goes up another 50 centimetres, it (floodwater) can inundate the town. “We’re worried about the community itself as well.” With thousands of

people evacuated from Wagga Wagga, Mr Wardle said he is prepared to help with the clean-up effort when he returns home. He was thankful of the efforts to maintain levee banks in the area. “After the 2010 flood, they found a weakness in the levee bank so they got in there and fixed it,” Mr Wardle said. “They found that big bull ants caused it, they dug in there and undermined the levee banks.”

“It could be anything from a shovel load up to a couple of tonnes. “The main thing is the juice spills onto the road and it gets quite slippery for motorists and pedes-

A road worker in the region, who did not wished to be named, said truck drivers need to be further educated on the potential hazards grape spills can cause for other motorists. “From day to day we might get one call out and then the next day we might get half a dozen, which is quite regular as the season goes on,” they said.

New RTA chair backs joint tourism strategy By BRAD PERRY

DESTINATION Riverland and the Riverland Tourism Association (RTA) will need to work together to ensure a bright future for the local industry both parties believe. The RTA went into caretaker mode in July last year but was resurrected during a meeting last month. Newly appointed RTA chairperson Peter Freeman said the association plans to meet with Destination Riverland to discuss both group’s positions. “Early on, Destination Riverland announced they weren’t very interested in having a membership base and we think it’s very important, the fact the RTA does have a membership base, that we can act as a way of passing on members’

suggestions and ideas,” he said. “We’re hoping to have a meeting with them as soon as possible so we can complement their activities.”

Tourism can play a big part in reviving the fortunes of the Riverland.

Mr Freeman said he is passionate about Riverland tourism being involved with a local houseboat business. “Tourism can play a big part in reviving the fortunes of the Riverland and I think the RTA has got such

an important history of 40 years and 160 odd members from the tourism industry all working together across the whole of the Riverland without any of the parochialism that has sometimes been a problem,” he said. “The funding from SA Tourism and councils has been withdrawn and given to Destination Riverland, so we’ll survive on our membership subscriptions.” Destination Riverland executive officer Tony Sharley said the two tourism groups can work together. “The RTA has obviously decided it wants to play a role in tourism, so from our point of view it is going to be pretty important to work out exactly what that role is so we are going to need to meet with the RTA,” Mr

Sharley said. “The last thing we want as a region is two competing brands for tourism. “We want to have one absolutely solid Riverland brand when it comes to tourism and it’s not like we are a region that is flush with money, so every cent has to be spent very wisely and therefore, we want to make sure we are not duplicating. “So the critical thing is identifying who is going to do what and that’s something we will try and facilitate over the next few weeks.” The RTA appointed Michael Schuetze as vicechairperson, Bob West as secretary, Paul Capper as treasurer and Ian Andrews, Gaynor Fitzgerald, Mario Centofanti and Erica Babbage as committee members during this month’s meeting.

Local Government Association supports councils over Murray Darling Basin plan By CALLUM TRIFONOFF LOCAL Government Association chief executive officer Wendy Campana visited the Riverland this week to discuss the objectives of the Murray Darling Basin Plan with the three local councils. In the lead up to tomorrow’s public meeting, Ms Campana met with mayors Peter Hunt (Berri Barmera), Leon Stasinowsky (Loxton Waikerie) and Neil Martinson (Renmark Paringa) on Monday. Ms Campana said while all three mayors were in support of the plan,

there were still issues that need to be addressed. One of the issues was the methodology of the plan, with work currently being done at the Goyder Institute, arranged by State Premier Jay Weatherill. “In terms of the current outcomes and objectives that are in the plan as we know it at the moment, they felt they were tracking in the right direction,” she said. “They’re saying ‘what do you do if people don’t follow the rules, what are the penalties? What are the issues?’ “2015 is the first review so

they’re saying ‘what happens if we adopt it tomorrow and something goes wrong tomorrow? How are we going to deal with it?’” Ms Campana said the plan needs to address the concerns of South Australia and many local councils are putting their thoughts in writing for submission to the Murray Darling Basin Authority. “From hearing the Riverland mayors and knowing what Alexandrina council is doing, what the Coorong council is doing, I think there’s going to be some really good local feedback that is going to be given,” she said.

We want you! By BRAD PERRY

■ YOU: SARC member Chris Bennett wants you at tomorrow’s basin plan meeting in Renmark.

THE Murray Darling Basin Authority has been told to expect more than 1000 people at tomorrow’s basin plan draft meeting in Renmark. South Australia River Communities member Chris Bennett said many businesses will close their doors and staff members will attend the meeting at the Renmark Greek Orthodox Hall. “I’m surprised at just how enthusiastic and quickly people have got on board with it,” he said. “There are numerous businesses now that have promised to come, in many cases bringing along their staff, a lot of them are either shutting down

completely for that period or leaving minimal staff on. “Lots and lots of businesses will be bringing along either produce or machines, so we’ve got everything from grape harvesters, a semi full of citrus, to cranes and bikes and boats. “I don’t think that sort of approach has been taken in any other town that has held the meetings.” Mr Bennett said more than 1000 people at the meeting will send a “very, very powerful message”. “This is about the community and it is about all the businesses who provide services to not just irrigators but the community who generally are going to be affected,” he said. “Originally they’d been

asked to set up for 500 people because of the size of the hall, then they were told 800 and the last I heard was that the MBDA are predicting 1000. “The numbers and the people there shows concern and it sends an extremely powerful message that we are not to be ignored, we do have some issues and we want to discuss these issues and we do want to resolve these issues so we’ve got a future as a community.” SARC is preparing the event for an overflow of people, setting up outdoor speakers and seating. Bus loads of people from Waikerie and Cadell will also attend the meeting. The meeting will take place from 1pm.

Whetstone calls for action MEMBER for Chaffey Tim Whetstone is calling on locals to attend the basin plan meeting in Renmark as the last public opportunity to address concerns. “It is about the region considering its future and I think tomorrow is an opportunity to attend the meeting and either ask questions or voice your concerns,” he said. “It’s about the critical mass of the Riverland and its community in its entirety to come along and have your say. “Potentially this is our last public effort to address the concerns that we have as a region to tackle the draft plan.” Mr Whetstone said he does not support Premier Jay Weatherill’s threat of a High Court Challenge. “The High Court Challenge is just more political spin,” Mr Whetstone said. “What we need to do address is where the efficiency gains can be made instead of concentrating on a number.”

Knowles: SA needs to move forward on plan “After we capped our take more than 40 years ago the upstream states increased their use by about 5000 billion litres a year. “We take just 7 per cent of the waters extracted from the basin, while they take 93 per cent.” In response, Mr Knowles said the answer is not taking water from interstate. “I pay tribute to Riverland farmers, they’ve invested heavily in the past in efficiencies and they’ve had a dividend as a consequence of that with the various support mechanisms that have had to do all that,” he said. “It’s made them more

resilient and I think we do seek to recognise that. “I think the challenge will be, in a South Australian context, whether, for example, the Premier prosecuting a bigger number, 4000 gigalitres I think he is after, compared to our numbers, the impact that might have on Riverland farmers should he be successful. “Simply saying for local digestion that we want more water but we don’t want to contribute to that effort and take it out of somebody else’s backyard, is what’s caused these problems in the past. “If anyone thinks a large volume of water is going to come out of the basin and people aren’t going to be asked to participate

genuinely and fairly up and down the basin, I think they are not being realistic.” Mr Knowles said he has worked closely with local irrigation identities Ben Haslett and Gavin McMahon. “While we don’t necessarily agree on everything, I think fundamentally there is an understanding in the South Australian community that there has to be a plan and there is a growing likelihood that a plan will be in place sometime this year when it finally gets into Parliament,” he said. “These meetings are very helpful to ensure we are getting it right because my job and the Authority’s job in a few short weeks is to bundle up

all the information and give it to the State, Territory and Commonwealth ministers and they then have to consider all of that.” When asked why the meeting is scheduled during the middle of the Riverland winegrape harvest, Mr Knowles said there was no other way around it. “I think people should turn up, I think people should let not so much me but their governments know what their views are,” he said. “I keep fronting up and I’m on the road constantly and we try to do the best we can. “But everywhere I go there is always something happening somewhere but I know people will turn up.”

Waikerie Flower Show still seeks committee By CALLUM TRIFONOFF THE future of the long running Waikerie Flower Show is still not secure following a fold attendance at a public meeting in Waikerie on Monday. Just 11 people attended the community meeting to gauge how much interest there is in forming a new committee for the event. As a result another meeting has been scheduled for March 19 at the Waikerie council chambers. Former Waikerie Flower Show committee member Alison Smith said she hopes the next meeting will see more people express interest, especially the younger generation. “We just can’t do it with that (low) number of committee members,� she said. It is a race against time for the flower show to gain interested members as it is hoping to apply for a grant from the Loxton Waikerie Council. “That (the funding) will go towards hall hire and printing the programs,� Mrs Smith said. After storms damaged the Waikerie Institute roof, the event also needs a new venue to host displays. Mrs Smith is encouraging as many people as possible to attend the planned meeting on March 19. “It’s been going for 30 years and I think people really enjoy going to it,� she said. “There are some lovely gardens around and people love showing their flowers.�

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

THE Murray Darling Basin Authority will visit Renmark to discuss the draft Basin Plan on Friday. The State Government's initial concerns about the plan remain. We are concerned that the plan does not adequately recognise South Australia's responsible use of the river, will not do enough to ensure we can withstand future droughts and won't protect our iconic Ramsar listed sites. Since my visit to the Riverland last October, we have continued to talk with people in river communities to understand their concerns and to help develop a strong response. We are working through a detailed analysis of the draft plan but it is clear the burden of returning the river to health must be borne by the upstream states.

After we capped our take more than 40 years ago, the upstream states increased their use by about 5000 billion litres a year. We take just seven per cent of the waters extracted from the Basin, while they take 93 per cent. We also need to continue our strong tradition of sustainable food production. That is why the State Government has backed the $240 million Water Industry Alliance bid for infrastructure funding that was delivered to Canberra last week. These are the arguments we will continue to pursue. I encourage you to go to the meeting and help ensure South Australia’s voice is heard. Jay Weatherill, State Premier.

State unity vital THE Country Labor Executive supports Premier Jay Weatherill in his strong

call for unity from all South Australians in their response to the MurrayDarling Basin Authority draft report. At a public meeting in Berri just days after becoming Premier, Mr Weatherill stressed the importance of unity from all South Australian Murray water users in responding to recommendations in the report, which he said did not take into account the good record of South Australia over the past 40 years. Liberal member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone gave the Premier his full support at that meeting but has now reneged on that undertaking and is publicly criticising him for his stand. Just when we need a solid display of unity, Mr. Whetstone has bowed to pressure from his interstate colleagues who represent electorates in the Murray-Darling Basin. He has chosen to support those who have grossly over-allocated

water from the system, which has put the basin in a precarious position, rather than stand up for the lower section of the Murray which suffered environmental degredation during the prolonged drought. The Murray-Darling Basin needs urgent environmental help. It is in South Australia’s interest to stand united in responding to the draft report in a responsible way rather than attempting to score cheap political points as Mr Whetstone appears to be doing. Roly Telfer, S.A. Country Labor Executive member, Renmark.

Leave the ducks alone GREAT letters to the editor (Riverland Weekly, February 23) on the killing of ducks. It really amazes me how anybody gets plea-

sure from shooting wildlife and animals. Tourists, the elderly, carers and their clients, parents and their children or grandchildren love to feed the ducks or just relax watching them, in their peaceful environment. We live in a world of so much cruelty, violence, greed and money and at the end of the day, who suffers? Animals and wildlife. If you really enjoy shooting and killing go to war with your gun and one bullet. On a happy note, I would like to thank Lola from the Moorook Animal Shelter and her volunteers, Jos Kelly and her volunteers Susan, Anne, Kat and anybody else who takes the time and effort to rescue wildlife and animals. Just remember the devastating fires and floods that have claimed thousands of lives. Martina Roberts, Loxton.

Entertainment WHAT’S

ON

FEELING like somewhat of a Soundwave veteran, I entered the gates of Bonython Park in Adelaide on Saturday. There were thousands of people, including many Riverlanders, thinking along the same lines as me, rushing in at■ ROCK: Riverlander Tristan Kemp (far tempting not to miss one of the right) enjoyed the Soundwave Festival, while many scheduled bands playing up and coming UK band You Me at Six music from across a wide range proved popular with the crowds. of genres. As I entered I studied the timetable trying to figure out where the likes of early 1990s band Bush fits into the line-up headlined by System of a Down, Marilyn Manson, Limp Bizkit and Bad Religion. Sunshine bathed the park as I found myself under a tent watching Four Year Strong, a rocking American band. There was time to catch old school act Steel Panther, who

lived up to their reputation, entertaining the crowd with oneliners and unusual lyrics, all the while dressed in spandex. The revolving door that is punk rock band Unwritten Law saw Scott Russo, the last remaining original member, belt out some songs from earlier albums and even an impressive Grinspoon cover. A wheelchair bound fan crowd surfed to a huge applause from the audience before Christian band Relient K revealed Switchfoot had returned home for a familiy emergency. UK band You Me at Six played in front of a large crowd before I took comfort in an expensive but tasty fast food option, Chip on a Stick. As the day went on, rain left fans running for cover, while many braved the conditions to see their favourite bands. Punk veterans Bad Religion

Tom Burlinson’s swingin’ show By BRAD PERRY SCREEN and stage performer Tom Burlinson will be paying tribute to some of the music industry's all time greats when he brings his show to the Chaffey Theatre next Thursday. Best known for his lead role in the Man From Snowy River, Tom (pictured right) will bring his latest musical production, Now We're Swingin' to the Riverland. The avid Frank Sinatra fan told the Riverland Weekly that performing songs from many eras gone by is a privilege. “These are some wonderful songs made famous by some of the great singers of the style of the 20th century and have been revived much more recently especially by Michael Buble and Harry Connick Junior, so there is an appeal across the board for this kind of music,” he said. “If you are celebrating some of these men, there are

some songs you just can't leave out. “For instance if you are doing Nat King Cole, you've got to put his signature tune which is Unforgettable, Dean Martin, Everybody Loves Somebody is his best known song.” Tom grew up listening to the music of Frank Sinatra and along with classics by Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis Jr and Bobby Darin to name a few, he hopes to provide an unforgettable show. “I've loved his (Frank Sinatra) music all my life and there is something that I really enjoy about singing these songs,” he said. “I've created the show myself and I really enjoy sharing my enjoyment of the music with the audience and it's very gratifying and invariably the response is 'great show, great show'.” He is looking forward to interacting with the audience, which is often made up of many generations.

“Sometimes I get 'my mum loves you' and some times those mums were teenage girls when the Man from Snowy River was released, sometimes I get 'my nan loves you',” Tom laughed. Tom Burlinson will perform at the Chaffey Theatre in Renmark at 8pm next Thursday.

New Disease Alert – Myrtle Rust This fungal disease could have a major impact on native vegetation and cause serious damage to nursery and forestry industries. Plants from the Myrtaceae family are potentially susceptible to infection. It has been found on willow myrtle (Agonis sp.), turpentine (Syncarpia sp.) and bottlebrush (Callistemon sp.). The fungus causes spots on leaves and stems that develop into masses of orange powdery spores, resulting in dieback of new vegetation growth. It has been detected in NSW, Queensland and Victoria but not in SA. Please keep on the lookout and report anything that might be suspected myrtle rust to the Pest Plant Hotline on 1800 084 881.

Have you seen buffel grass!

Day of rock at Soundwave By BRAD PERRY

Natural Resources Matter

reminded everyone about their age during a top class set and Limp Bizkit played some of its biggest hits much to the delight of 30,000 people. With Marilyn Manson and Slipknot pulling large numbers to watch, I ended up wandering the huge area comprising of 11 stages and found myself drawn into a band titled Letlive. Not because of their music but because the lead singer had climbed the stage and was performing vocals whilst hanging from the top corner. As the set went on, he threw himself around the stage before finishing by trashing the drum kit. The Used put on an admirable performance and by the time Angels and Airwaves and System of a Down had finished, I was ready to call it a very long but entertaining day.

Pressurelands Fringe show in region By CALLUM TRIFONOFF AN ADELAIDE Fringe show will begin its three day tour of the Riverland and Mallee today. PressureLands, a 50-minute community arts performance project starring three local thespians, is aimed at talking to young people aged between 14 and 26 about what pressure means to them. The performance has developed into a successful Adelaide Fringe show. “It's about what sort of pressure young people are under, what expectations other people have of them and what they have of themselves,” organiser Alysha Herrmann said. “It's developed into a play where the three characters are in year 12 and we see what their experiences are and what they're going to do when they finish year 12.” PressureLands stars Riverland teenagers Brianna Obst, Milly Hoffmann and former local James Herrmann. PressureLands will begin its Riverland tour tonight at the Lameroo Memorial Hall, continuing tomorrow at the Waikerie High School (both from 7pm) and Saturday at the Renmark Institute (from 2pm and 7pm).

The SA MDB NRM Board wants your help in identifying buffel grass in the Riverland. If you suspect you have seen this weed an NRM officer will gladly help identify it and arrange immediate control of the infestation. This introduced perennial tussock grass is rapidly spreading through the South Australian arid regions through livestock transportation. A factsheet to assist identification of this plant is located on the SA MDB NRM Board website: www.samdbnrm.sa.gov.au

Garden escapes to look out for Another invasive grass weed to lookout for is fountain grass (Pennisetum setaceum) a densely tufted perennial growing to 900mm in height and the flowerhead is a long purplish feathery spike. It is often planted in gardens. SA MDB NRM Board is concerned about the spread of this plant along the Paringa Causeway and is undertaking mapping to determine the extent. Fountain grass is not a declared weed and the source of the infestation is likely to becoming from local garden plants. If you see this plant along roadsides and in areas of native vegetation then please report it to your local NRM officer.

Dingoes don’t bark Dingo numbers inside the Dog Fence have increased in recent years despite land managers efforts to control them. Dingos travel large distances and there is some chance of Dingoes appearing in southern areas. Signs to look for include strange dog tracks and scats, unusual sheep behaviour or multiple sheep carcases in a limited area. Effective Dingo control relies on landowners to be vigilant, taking appropriate control activities and contacting the appropriate authorities. The SA MDB NRM Board can assist with advice, baits, and loaned traps. Contact Peter Michelmore on 8391 7500.

HE Loveday 4x4 Adventure Park will host a Riverland first next weekend when a number of Guinness World Records are expected to be broken. Titled AusTruck Extreme World Records Weekend, the popular Loveday park is expecting the event to be one of its biggest to date with more than 5000 people to attend. Competitors will attempt to break 10 world records on Saturday, March 17, while the Extreme AusTruck 4x4 racing in three different classes will be held on Saturday morning and all day Sunday, with up to 40 of Australia’s top modified 4WDs competing. The AusTruck 4x4 racing is Australia’s newest 4WD event involving a series of timed races over obstacles and has drawn large crowds in shows at Melbourne and Brisbane. Loveday 4x4 Adventure Park owner Tony Whateley said the track is being remodelled to cater for the AusTruck event. He is excited about what the event can bring to the Riverland. “It looks like we’re going to have a good turnout of numbers,” Mr What-

eley said. “We’re getting heaps of interest from cities across Australia.” While attempting to break Guinness World Records is hard work, Mr Whateley is confident of beating a number of the records attempted. “Just about every world record here, we can do,” he said. “The only thing that will stop us is mechanical failure or if we get washed out in the rain.” Mr Whateley said motorsport fans will travel from across Australia to the region in a bid to take part in, or witness, the world record attempts. “Anyone who drives a truck wants to take a day off to come and watch it,” he said. Another major drawcard for the weekend will be a huge monster truck, which will have its first ever outing in Australia at the event. “On the monster truck side of it, it’s not often we get the opportunity to have monster truck rides, where kids can actually get in a monster truck and have a ride,” Mr Whateley said. The three racing events will con-

sist of bushmans, open and standard classes across a one kilometre stretch in a pursuit style race. Another event, titled Bill’s Mud Run, will be held on a 30-metre mud pit, with competitors being timed, with the aim to get through the course as fast as they can. Catering will also be available during the two days with steak sandwiches, roast packs, chips, pizzas, donuts and ice cream all being sold at food vans. “It’s a family orientated event and the catering side of it is reasonably priced,” Mr Whateley said. Entry price for a weekend pass is $50, while witnessing Saturday’s proceedings will cost $25 and for Sunday, entry is $15. “There’s onsite camping as well, so if you want to have a few drinks, don’t drive, camp,” Mr Whateley said. The World Records Weekend will kick off from 9am next Saturday, with the record attempts to take place from 2pm. The proceedings will continue into Sunday, commencing at 10am.

■ SIDEWAYS: Many daring stunts will be attempted at the Loveday based World Records Weekend.

Crowds expected to flock to motorsport weekend THE AusTruck Extreme World Records Weekend is set to enhance the reputation of the Riverland hosting large motorsport events with many spectators from around the country flocking to Loveday next weekend. Many tickets for the event

have already been sold with interest spread right across the country. “I’m confident we’re getting plenty of people from the city, from Adelaide and Melbourne,” Mr Whateley said. “The big winner is the

Riverland as a whole because everyone will know where Loveday is and then they’ll know where Barmera and the Riverland is.” Mr Whateley is hopeful the event will put the Riverland “on the map” in a motorsport sense.

There will also be media and coverage from across Australia at the event, further boosting the park’s profile. “I’d say well over 100 videos will go on YouTube from people with their phones and cameras,” Mr Whateley said.

UNDEFEATED Renmark North will take on Lyrup in this Saturday's Renmark District Cricket Association (RDCA) grand final at the Renmark Number Two Oval. In what should be a close fought replay of last year's tied final, North will be looking for the perfect end to the season, while Lyrup's roller coaster year would reach its peak with victory on

the weekend. RDCA Committee member Tim Jackson said while North will go in as favourites to win the premiership, he is not writing Lyrup off. “They're a bit of an unknown package the Lyrup boys,� Jackson said. “Lyrup have had huge troubles with their numbers but last week (in the preliminary) they had a full strength side and looked quite impressive.� Jackson said Lyrup's Simon Sumner, Gary

WAIKERIE-Ramco, Renmark and Berri will all be vying for a spot in the Riverland Turf Cricket Association A grade finals this weekend. Renmark, which is currently sitting in last position, will need to beat Loxton to have any chance of making the finals in what will be a shortened match due to rain last weekend. Waikerie-Ramco leads by nine runs with seven wickets in hand in its match

against Berri, needing to win on second innings for a finals place. Currently Berri sits in second place and is likely to create a finals berth but if it loses to Waikerie-Ramco and Renmark wins, can realistically still miss out on a spot. Meanwhile, the top six B grade finals positions are cemented with Loxton Black claiming the final position, two wins ahead of Wunkar. It is still up in the air

who will finish top with Barmera Hotel and Cobdogla to compete for the position this weekend. Meanwhile, Renmark won the under 16 premiership by one run after making 52 against WaikerieRamco on Saturday. In under 14s, Berri easily accounted for Loxton by nine wickets for the flag. Loxton could only manage 84, with Berri passing the total one wicket down.

Golf course survives heavy rain By CALLUM TRIFONOFF WITH heavy downpours last week, Berri Golf Club’s new drainage system helped keep the course from water build up. The 12th, 16th and 17th holes were affected by water for two days but Berri Golf Club captain Wayne Thiele said no damage was done. The water on the fairways left from last Wednesday's rain dried away without a problem, according to Mr Thiele. Work by the Berri Barmera Council recently to fix drainage issues on a number of holes has helped

■ BIG WET: The Berri Golf Club felt the effects of last week’s rains. the course cope with wet weather that would have previously made some holes unplayable. Mr Thiele said the club is now prepared for future rains similar to last week. “If we can have 80 millimetres of rain and the course

is still playable, that's very, very good for us,� he said. The rains have had a positive impact on the course greens as they are in pristine condition for the club's first ever nine-hole par three competition on Sunday.

CHARLIE’S SPORTS GOSS

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

WITH GRAHAM CHARLTON

Berri adds more silverware ■ UNLIKE the one sided result of the second semi-final in men’s division one bowls when Berri, on its home turf, destroyed Waikerie 12047, last Saturday’s rematch between the same two clubs produced a contest befitting the grand final. High standard, non compromising bowls. But in the end Berri, the defending champion and 2011-12 minor premier, was simply too good and boasted too much depth for Waikerie, who was playing in its first grand final since finals were introduced. Berri won 84-68 in a match in which a leading player from the host club Renmark said “Waikerie kept at it, nipping away at their heels but in the end the class of some of the Berri skippers and depth in their rinks proved too much for them�. “Berri are a very good unit�. In other divisions, Loxton RSL went some way to bury the greens gremlins from 2010-11 by winning a pennant double taking out division two and division three green in style, while Loxton grabbed division three gold. There is unofficial talk that Loxton RSL is interested in participating at top level, so we will watch activities pre 2012-13 off the greens with interest as I understand the association has it minuted that there will not be a bye in division one in the future. I must spend some time on that victory by Loxton in division three gold, 54-48 against Berri. The result must have been particularly satisfying for one of Loxton’s, and indeed the Riv-

erland’s, stalwarts in the sport Doug Vaughan. Doug was a skipper in the side that was made up of players from the club’s flexirink concept that he played a large part in instigating. Also, he would have been pleased to see his son John skipper a rink to a 12 shot victory that was crucial to the end result. This is the third pennant captured by the team since the flexirink format was introduced. I recall that the concept did have its critics in its initial stages but these seem to have been ironed out. A Loxton spokesman said

“the flexibility seems to suit modern times�. “The system has unearthed some potentially very good prospects and all we need to do now is to convince them to try out in a main stream side�. “The club is crying out for renewal and these newer bowlers are the future.� While talking Loxton, other news out of the club is that Peter Kimber has continued the fine season we covered a few weeks ago by winning his 10th club championship and by joining his wife Lynn to grab the mixed pairs title.

Peter defeated another Loxton stalwart Vic Pavia 25-8 in the singles final and in the pairs with Lynn, accounted for his brother David who was partnered by Loris Huxtable. Looking at women’s bowls, champion of champion events are in the air at this stage but last week’s weather and this long weekend’s Prestige Medley and shield competitions on Yorke Peninsula have interrupted the program to some extent. The only event that was finalised was the champion of champion triples at Loxton RSL on Friday with the title going to Loxton’s Lorraine Lee (skipper), Myrtle Size

and Lynn Kimber. Rain washed out Wednesday’s fours tournament and that will now be played on Wednesday April 4, the pairs were held yesterday and the singles, programmed for tomorrow, have a new date, Wednesday, March 14 because of some contestants being off to Yorke Peninsula this weekend. Officials have confirmed all off the club singles champions are available for that day. Twelve regions made up of six country and six metro, involving 250 bowlers and officials, will be on the Yorke Peninsula this weekend playing in the Prestige Medley mens and womens nine a side competitions in pairs, triples and fours formats over Saturday and Sunday and chasing $6000 in prize money. The men will be at Moonta Memorial Bowling Club and the women will be hosted jointly by Kadina and Wallaroo Mines clubs. Monday is ‘bragging rights day’ when the cream of the country bowlers clash with the best from the city in the annual Schroeter, Kennedy and Under 18 Shield challenges. The action will be at the impressive new Wallaroo Sports and Community Club.



BSR claims back-to-back cricket premiership titles

JHWLQIRU\RXUFXWRIWKHDFWLRQQRZ

■ FOR the second season in a row Blanchetown-Swan Reach has finished the Mid Murray cricket minor round in third position on the ladder and then gone on to win the premiership. In last Saturday’s grand final at Swan Reach BSR lost the toss and, perhaps surprisingly were invited to bat first, reaching 8 for 132 with 24 from Troy Cowland and 18 from both Nat Salter and Scott McKenzie. For their opponents Waikerie Gold, Jonno Walding, 2 for 25 and skipper Cameron Hawke, 2 for 21, were best with the ball. In reply, Gold could only manage 73 with Brad Gay contributing 25 and Hawke 14. Jason Rodda, 4 for 14,

Max Martinson, 3 for 4 and McKenzie 2 for 33, did the damage for BSR. BSR had served notice of being genuine chances of defending its title with an impressive win over Claypans in a semi-final but for Waikerie Gold its loss in the biggest game of the year was a sporting clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst nightmare. Up until Saturday they had been undefeated in 2011-12. However, the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solid season was reflected by the success of its players when individual awards were presented after Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game.

It was a terrible mistake and we knew it was wrong while we were doing it ~ Gregg Williams, NFL

The number of Riverland teams competing at this weekend’s state eightball championships.

SPORT

Lakers stake claim

■ HIT: Lyrup’s Sam Hill hits out in B grade action.

■ IF THE start of local baseball’s major round last Friday night is any indication of the battles for the premierships then some of the most fiercely contested matches on record are still to come. In the A grade, we have Barmera Lakers desperate to convert a minor premiership into the title, Berri Warriors equally determined to defend their 2010-11 champions’ status and at the same time to equal Renmark Angels’ record six titles in a row and Angels, of course, are just as determined to prevent them from doing so. Barmera took one step towards their goal with direct entry into the grand final coming from a victory over Berri on Friday night by one run but only after a titanic seesawing struggle. They say the game ‘had it all’ and that it was one of the best local contests in the sport in recent history.

Lakers led 2-0 early but Warriors inspired by Nick Kuhn and Phillip Goldspink clawed their way to a lead in the fourth. However errors would cost Berri dearly. The errors aided Barmera getting back to a 6-6 tie in the seventh, forcing the game into extra innings. Warriors tried everything, keeping star Lakers’ hitter Michael Wade quiet but Tony Probert and Jason MacGregor stepped up in his place. Heading into the 10th inning, Adelaide umpire Kym Smith was kept extremely busy as players tired and became frustrated but Kuhn’s solo home run gave his side the lead again. In the bottom of the 10th Berri fell into errors once more and the persistent Lakers took advantage to get home 9-8. Barmera can now sit back and watch Berri and Renmark slug it out

tomorrow night to decide the second grand final candidate. Warriors, without key batter Paul Reid and star pitcher Jed Miller, against Barmera still showed how serious they are about defending their title and equaling Renmark’s record. Angels have made no secret they value that record but to avoid sharing the honour they are going to have to be at their very best. To the B grade – call in the stewards. In the knockout first semi-final Loxton Wildcats defeated Berri 7-4 after they lost to the same opponent 1-17 only seven nights earlier. In the second semi-final, Barmera entered a second team into the grand final when they fought back from 0-3 down to win 4-3 against Lyrup Lions. The Wildcats and Lions meet for a grand final spot tomorrow night and the fur should really fly.

Riverlanders to compete at state women’s eightball championships in Renmark ■ THE 23rd annual South Australian Women’s Eightball Championships will be held over this long weekend in the Function/Galaxy Rooms of the Renmark Hotel. Preliminary matches in the 24 team tournament will be held on Saturday and Sunday with the finals in the Function Room on Monday. With one team withdraw-

ing from the event, Riverland, as host region, has taken up the option of increasing its teams in the competition from two to three. Other entries are coming from across the state’s country and metropolitan areas, as well as from Sunraysia, with some 150 players involved overall. The competition will commence in three sections of eight

teams playing in a round robin format on day one with the leading two teams from each section moving into Sunday when play will decide a top four for the finals on Monday. Play will run from 8am to 9pm on Saturday and from 9am on the last two days. This is a tough competition but in 2010 a Riverland team was the winner of this event and

they remain the only local team, male or female, to have ever won an SA title in the sport since the championships were introduced. This is a chance to see some of the leading players from women’s eightball in action and with the competition being played across some 12 tables, there will be good viewing areas available for spectators.

Double header speedway events to entertain ■ SPEEDWAY fans have a double header this weekend with the Riverland Club racing on Saturday night and Waikerie Sunline on Sunday. A highlight of the two meetings will be rounds two and three of the V8 Super Sedans Country Series being held with up to 14 cars nominated. Round two is at the Calperum Hill track and round three is at Sunline, with chat around both clubs that Steve Schwarz is a hot favourite in the events. However we are warned not to discount the likes of Steve Stewart or Kym Cottrell. Also at the Riverland meeting on Saturday some of the best drivers from SA and Victoria will go head to head in a major event, the SA State Modified Sedan Championship. Defending champion Victoria’s Jeremy McClure will be aiming to defend his title but local drivers Georgie Higgs, Marty Raams and his son Trevor will have other ideas. In Late Model class, Adelaide’s

■ FAST: There will be plenty of action at the Riverland and Sunline Speedway tracks this weekend, including the F500 championship racers (above). Matt Crimmins will be favoured amongst some more V8 thunder. There will also be those little winged speedsters in the club’s F500 championship. In power to weight ratio these cars are really quick. Junior sedans will be back, while the final event continues to be described as pure madness. The ever popular Caravan Demolition Derby will again have blokes like Wayne ‘Bluey’ Fennell, James Brennan and Greg

Haynes destroying as much as they possibly can. Gates at Riverland Speedway open on Saturday at 5pm for racing from 6pm. At Waikerie, gates will open on Sunday at 4pm with racing to get underway at 6pm. Sunline’s second meeting for 2011-12 will also feature round five of the Lightning Sprints SA Challenge Series. With some eight cars nominated it will be tough to beat

super fast duo Kate Weis and Melissa Crouch, while local Jason Wilson is one to keep an eye on at his home track. A good field of Modified Sedans will feature the much anticipated debut of the new Trevor Raams Commodore but look out for Tony Schmidt as he tries to make it two victories from two at Sunline this season. Andy Maxwell, Callum Mackie and Jaiden Ruhs will again be competing amongst 20 junior cars, while a good showing of Street Stocks is again expected. Once again Sunline will also be showcasing some classic race cars from days gone by. This time it will be some Classic Formula 500s putting on a spirited demonstration as the drivers have shown that they are prepared to push their machines to the limit. A back-to-back double header this weekend is great news for speedway fans but it will be even better come Easter with a triple header.

Duffield takes on high profile assistant coaching role with cricket centre ■ From Page 28 He had been engaged for some coaching work at the Gillespie Centre during which East Torrens ‘ Paul Tregloan, who is involved in the management and running of the facility, asked him whether he would play one game for his club as they were short on players. Duffield did and obviously East Torrens officials liked what they saw and from then on the 42-year-old has been travelling to the city each weekend playing for the club’s C and D grade sides in a coaching/mentoring role. Plagued by troublesome knees in recent seasons locally, Duffield said “the involvement

over last winter and my coaching and playing this season has resulted in me losing some weight and being a bit fitter, so the knees are good”. So good in fact that he is leading the East Torrens’ D grade run scoring with a top score of 150 and has been one of the reasons the team, of mainly 18 to 23 year olds, has qualified for the finals. “But not good enough for me to return to the bowling crease,” he adds quickly. Duffield is impressed by the improvement in the standard of cricket in the lower SACA grades but can see a number of issues are ongoing at A and B grade levels. “One of the problems is

the experience of a number of the 30-year-olds is being lost when those players head off to turf cricket or to the country,” he said. On a second occasion, Duffield was also in the right spot, at the right time. “Our game had been washed out and I was back at the centre doing some coaching when unbeknown to me, Jason Gillespie had returned home from overseas and apparently took an interest in things that were going on,” Duffield explained. “As a result, I was invited to act as an assistant to Paul Tregloan who will be the coach for the Kuala Lumpur tour.” Duffield is watching with interest as the SACA works desper-

ately to improve the Australian cricket scene. “The Gillespie and Lehmann Academies have now been combined out at Thebarton, even though they remain separate in name,” Duffield said. “The new facilities are fantastic with six practice nets all 52 metres in length, so there is even room for complete bowlers’ run-ups.” Duffield is obviously enjoying his new challenges. “It would be great to see some of those experienced guys in Riverland cricket get out amongst some of the smaller clubs and perhaps help to improve the standard and get more teams into the A grade competition,” he said.

Cycling gains in popularity throughout Riverland and beyond ■ THERE is an obvious increase in the popularity of cycling as a competitive sport, a social or family activity, or simply as a way of getting fit. A Riverland Group ride on Sunday March 25 will cater for anyone interested in taking up the sport for any of those reasons. This will not be a race. It will be a chance for all Riverland riders to get together for a day, go for a ride and then sit around at Bella Lavender afterwards for coffee and cake and to talk about such things as insurance for themselves and their bike. The ride will leave the Winkie Primary School at 10am. There will be two groups, one for fast, the other for slow riders and they will cover varying distances. The ride finishes back at the school. Later on Sunday, April 29 there will be actual racing. The Riverland Cycling Club will present the 2012 Riverland/MilduraCoomealla Cycling Club Invitational race using the normal Murtho Road course, which is 50km out and back for seniors and 30km for juniors. The race starts at 10am and will be from the power substation on Murtho Road, two kilometers from Paringa. The nomination fee is $10 and with $400 prize money on offer, racing should be fast and furious. A free barbecue at Paringa Vineyards, 286 Murtho Road will follow. For further details on the Group Ride or the Invitational Race, telephone Riverland Cycling Club President Lee Rasheed on 0417 896 559.

Trio top shooters at Barmera ■ ROBERT Maywald, Frank Albanese and Trevor Shaddock all had a real day out at last Sunday’s shoot at the Barmera Gun Club. Frank and Trevor, with scores of 50/50, shared first place in the AA grade of the 50 Target Double Barrel event. The trio all shot 24/25 to lead the A grade in the 25 Target Continental and Albanese took out the A grade in the 25 Target Skeet with 25/25. In addition, Maywald won the A grade in the 50 Target Double Barrel with 48/50 and B grade in the 25 Target Skeet with his 23/25, ahead of Shaddock 17/25. Other winners included Robbie Robertson in the B grade with 47/50 and Roger Nutt, 42/50 in the C grade of the 50 Target Double Barrel Shoot. Harvey Nunn and Peter Brister with 20/25 won the B grade and Jim Vithoulkas with 15/25 won the C grade in the 25 Target Continental. Brister also took out the 25 Target Skeet C grade with 23/25.

OVERSEAS COACHING Page 25

Former Waikerie-Ramco cricket player in new role By GRAHAM CHARLTON AS FORMER Glenelg District Cricket captain and more recently, WaikerieRamco player and Riverland Cricketer of the Year Andrew Duffield modestly puts it, “it has just been a matter of being in the right spots at the right time”.

Duffield was referring to his recent appointment as assistant coach of an under 18 team from the Gillespie Cricket Academy in Adelaide that will travel to play against teams in Kuala Lumpur on a 10 day tour from April 12. Last winter, Duffield travelled to Adelaide to

carry out some coaching with individuals and with the academy at the centre before starting the 2011-12 season back with Waikerie-Ramco. However, in November last year he made his first appearance in the right place at the right time. ■ Continued Page 27
