Feasibility report recommends that relocating Renmark Paringa’s VIC would be beneficial

CENTRE TO MOVE?

A FEASIBILITY report has recommended that the Renmark Paringa Visitor Information Centre be relocated to 18th Street in order to maximise tourism and financial benefits. Hudson Howells, which was engaged by the Renmark Paringa Council to complete a study into

the feasibility of relocating the visitor centre, states that savings of more than $225,000 over 10 years can be made if it relocates to the Community and Civic Centre. Despite the findings in the report, council will now hold a workshop with elected members and staff over the next month to look into a tourism strategy for the Ren-

mark Paringa area. “The idea is to work out a whole tourism strategy for the Renmark Paringa area and included in that will be the report,� Renmark Paringa Council Mayor Neil Martinson said. “From that they’ll then come up with a proposal that will go out to the community.� The report included extensive

Berri Barmera Council seeks approval to reduce existing four knot limit EDITORIAL BY

BRAD PERRY

A time of reflection I WAS one of many Riverlanders braving cold conditions on Anzac Day to commemorate the sacrifices of those who served Australia in armed conflicts. Each year veterans and community members gather at local sites to pay their respects and remember the sacrifices made. Like so many others, my family was directly affected by war. My Poppa was aboard the HMAS Perth during the Battle of Sunda Strait in World War II. Unknowingly the ship had sailed directly into a convoy of around 50 enemy warships and after engaging heavily in action for many hours severely outnumbered, the HMAS Perth ran out of ammo. The ship was torpedoed and sunk to the bottom of the ocean in Java. More than 350 of the personnel on board died. My Poppa survived and was taken Prisoner Of War in Changi. He spoke little about the war but the horrific experiences he shared with me are beyond words. Every Anzac Day I remember my Poppa and the sacrifices he made to help shape Australia to what it is today. We will remember them.

By BRAD PERRY THE Berri Barmera Council is seeking approval from the Department of Planning for changes to the speed limit on Lake Bonney. As part of the approval sought, council is aiming to relocate the eastern boundary of the four knot zone on Lake Bonney 200 metres to the west following concerns that the area does not strike a suitable balance for water users. A letter drop in regards to the speed limit change revealed that 95 out of the 137 responses were in favour of the change. Berri Barmera Councillor Mike Fuller said a reducing the speed limit at the eastern end of Lake Bonney would be “a win for the community”. “That’s the prime real estate on the lake area for people to park their boats and that’s been denied for many years and I could never understand why that was the case when there is still 73,000 square metres of water

that will be subject to a four knot zone,” Mr Fuller said. “By opening it up it’s going to make the lake a more vibrant and attractive area and hopefully help to improve the economy in Barmera. “It has been said that there is plenty of lake out there for them to use but water skiing is generally something that is undertaken by families and other social groups who don’t just sit in the boat all day, they need to sit somewhere in an area and they can relax and watch what’s going on in the water.” Lake Bonney Yacht Club sailing committee member Peter Dunk said there are a number of recreational users who currently do not obey the four knot speed limit. “There is a lot of people that are responsible but there is also a lot that don’t stick to the rules anyway,” he said. “If they manage it (the speed limit change) right it will be fine I think but they’ve got to be able to police and enforce it.”

What you said about the proposed changes: Comments in favour of the amendment: • Would be a benefit for boat users • Benefit skiers who already use the area • Should not encourage swimming around a boat ramp • The location is the most suitable for skiers on the lake • Most swimmers already do not use the area • Would be good for tourists and events • Reduce conflict between boat users/swimmers • More signage was needed to identify the area to assist. Comments against the amendment: • Council should reduce area only for special events • Water craft disregard speed limits anyway • Boats already have the use of the majority of the lake • Restrictions ensure safety of all water users • The existing zone should extend further along the lakefront.

Houseboats forced to install inadequate greywater systems

GREYWATER treatment systems being installed on houseboats across the region are not only costly but are also not up to the job, according to Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone. Houseboat operators are being forced to install inadequate systems under Environment Protection Authority (EPA) regulations and Mr Whetstone said costs are escalating at up to $20,000 per vessel. “They (EPA) are making them buy a system that is not up to the job and then the house-

boats almost have to develop these systems to make them work,” he said. “None of them (Riverland houseboat operators) are happy. “They are forking out huge amounts of money for a system that’s giving them grief on a continuous basis. “The houseboat operators are being used as a guinea pig to develop these systems and now we find the EPA are changing the rules.” Mr Whetstone said for commercial houseboat operators the

greywater treatment system regulations are a “nightmare on their business”. “The EPA must work with the manufacturers to ensure greywater treatment systems meet their requirements,” he said. “Manufacturers must also have the incentive to innovate and develop adequate treatment systems.” ■ UNFAIR: Houseboat owners are being forced to install expensive and unreliable greywater treatment systems.

“People that are going to benefit from should listen to what we are going to say to see what they can get out of it.” Mr Patty said the committee is aiming to raise around $750,000 before hoping to have a branch constructed in the region in 12 to 15 months. “That depends on the next stage of feasibility we do and how long it takes us to get the next pledges,” he said. “Also whether it is going to be in an existing or new building.” Opening the Bendigo Bank agency will be a measure of how much interest there is in the community, according to Mr Patty.

Problematic Barmera alcohol areas included in new proposal

Fishermen caught out

Dry zone to extend

PIRSA Fisheries and Aquaculture has warned recreational river fishers to ensure they are complying with fishing rules and regulations after more than 80 pieces of illegal fishing equipment was seized in recent weeks. Since the start of April, Fisheries Officers patrolling the River Murray between Katarapko Creek and Old Customs House have seized a range of illegal and unmarked nets and issued numerous warnings to fishers. PIRSA senior fisheries officer Dave Grant said targeted patrols in the area will be conducted. “It’s extremely disappointing to see this type of behaviour, particularly given the number of local fishers involved in these incidents,” Mr Grant said. “Ignorance is not an excuse and fishers need to research local fishing rules before heading out on the water – that includes understanding the type of gear and number of devices you are legally allowed to use. “We all have an important role to play in protecting the sustainability of fish stocks.”

By BRAD PERRY Barmera residents are calling for more signage and extra policing to enforce newly established dry areas on the Lake Bonney foreshore, Sedunary Park and the skate park. With the current dry areas in the Berri Barmera Council area set to expire on July 29, a report from Tony Lawson consulting recommends that the zone extends in specific areas of Barmera. Council will now apply to Consumer and Business Services incorporating Lake Bonney foreshore from the Yacht Club to Blue Bird Cafe, Sedunary Park and the skate park as dry areas from dusk to dawn daily. Barmera Hotel manager Brett Eckermann said appropriate enforcement is needed so tourists may not be impacted by the new dry area regulations. “If it serves its purpose that it’s intended for then its going to be a positive influence on the surrounds and for people using the facilities and the area,” he said. “That’s probably the intention of it to remove that regular problem behaviour to a different area where it’s not quite so visible and in the face of particularly,

visitors to the area. “Every now and then there is probably undesirable conduct witnessed and obviously it doesn’t portray the town in a good light.” Berri Barmera Councillor Mike Fuller, who addressed the consultation process, told the Riverland Weekly said more signage will be erected in the relevant dry zone areas. “We want to make sure that people are fully informed of this situation that it’s inappropriate in these areas to sit down and consume alcohol,” he said. “People can still enjoy the amenity of the area with the odd drink or two but there is prohibition after dark. “So those that tend to congregate and consume large quantities of alcohol will no longer be able to do so in the darkness when problems are likely to arise. “I would hope the policing in the initial stages would be a more community minded approach of warning and education as opposed to immediately going out and nailing people for breaching it.” In the consultant’s report, Berri Barmera Council youth development officer Michelle Harding said young people are not concerned by dry zones but

Waiting on the future of Berri’s swimming pool A MAJOR upgrade of the Hayden Stoeckel Swimming Pool using thousands of dollars in borrowed funds will be required if the Berri Barmera Council is denied a $1.9 million application through the Regional Development Australia Fund. Currently council has made it through to the next stage with its funding application in its fourth attempt to gain funding from the Federal Government for the pool. However, Berri Barmera

Council chief executive officer David Beaton has revealed that if the funding application is unsuccessful, the pool will need to be upgraded via a loan. “The current facility has been there since 1961-62,” Mr Beaton said. “It has been there for a long time so hopefully we can get something that’s more modern and can keep us going for a similar sort of period. “If we can’t get the funding we are going to have to try and do

something to upgrade it anyway. “We would probably have to go for a major upgrade that might be 10 or 15 per cent of the cost of a new one. “We’d have to borrow some money and pay it back over an extended period to make sure it’s not too much of a burden on the locals.” If council is successful its funding bid to build a new Olympic size swimming pool, Mr Beaton said it would be located “somewhere near Glassey Park”.

The brand new pool would also incorporate many features set to attract big swimming events to the Riverland. “Basically it would be a solar heated outdoor swimming pool,” Mr Beaton said. “Part of our thing was to try and have electronic scoring which would be suitable for state championships and that sort of thing.” Council is expecting to hear back about the RDAF application within two months.

Riverland customers use local service expertise to buy cheap online imports

Reminder to spend dollar wisely By BRAD PERRY RIVERLANDERS are being reminded to resist buying cheap overseas products and spend their money in local shops to help communities throughout the region survive. A Renmark and Berri based sports retail business has seen an increase in people trying on goods instore and then buying those

products online. “We have had a couple of incidents where customers have come in and tried shoes on and quite openly said to our salespeople, ‘thanks for that I’m going to go buy them on the internet’,” director Todd Charlton said. “I think a lot of people out there do shop local and support local but it is probably something

we have picked up on in the past six months that there is people out there that are buying on the internet. “We pride ourselves on employing local people, we are a locally owned business and we hope to be here for years to come but if people don’t support us, the declining sales may effect what we can run in the store with

product ranges. “Sometimes I think people forget about some of the things local businesses do for the community in general, out of their own pockets.” The situation is similar for Berri clothing business owner Jenny Todd. She has dealt with customers in her store and on the phone who have every intention of buying online

TAKE A BREAK CARER RETREAT A family carer provides unpaid care and support for a parent, partner, child or friend, who has a disability, is frail aged, or who has a chronic physical illness. Caring can be demanding, so getting support and taking a break is vital to looking after your own health. Looking after your health and wellbeing enables you to care for your loved one and increases your enjoyment of life. A Retreat is the opportunity for you to take time out from the caring role. Carers SA River Murray and Mallee Carers offer a range of retreats for carers throughout the year. Retreats can vary in length from one night away up to 3 nights and four days away. Take some time to recharge & meet other carers who share similar experiences.

but use local expertise. “You are affected but to what degree you don’t know,” Mrs Todd said. “If people choose to shop on overseas websites rather than locally, they are going to lose all the support that local businesses give the community.” Renmark Paringa Traders Association chairperson and local business owner Dave Patty said he too has seen a rise in people using local expertise to then shop online. “There is a percentage more of it happening and I think people are armed with more information,” he said. “We’ve just got to be a bit smarter when it comes to selling the goods and try to find out more

information and offer them our services. “We can remind them that if they buy it elsewhere and it is faulty or something goes wrong, you haven’t got

Council to assess tourism strategy ■ From Page 1 However, the South Australian Tourism Commission considered that the proposed shift to 18th Street may limit the capacity to develop and attract new services and attractions associated with the VIC.

The report also suggests that the existing VIC could be beneficial for tourism and recreational activities, including a cafe or restaurant if it was no longer required. Mr Martinson said any decisions made on the future strategy of tourism in the district will be put to public consultation.

FROM July the Renmark Paringa Council will fund staff costs, program delivery and operational expenses for the running of the Chaffey Community Centre following a review. The future of the centre was uncertain after a key State Government program discontinued funding late last year. However, a report has suggested the centre becomes a volunteer hub and a place to support community projects and the disadvantaged, through council funds. Renmark Paringa Mayor Neil Martinson said the future of the centre has been guaranteed in the short term. “After 12 months it will look

after itself through the current manager that would be there and the directive of council as well,” he said. “I think it’s very important as it provides lots of services to people within our community that have special needs and other needs as well and I think it’s something that’s quite important.”

Renmark wharf sustains minor damage during houseboat accident A HOUSEBOAT accident over the Easter break has seen damage caused to the Renmark town wharf. Renmark Paringa Councillor Graeme Daniel said the houseboat had trouble reversing and hit the structure. Despite the accident not causing “a huge amount of damage”, Mr Daniel said the wharf is valuable to the Renmark riverfront. “These things do happen but it’s just a shame because the wharf

hasn’t long been finished,” he said. “There was a bit of damage to the front of the wharf. “The one concern to me is that the front of the wharf was put there to protect the bank against erosion and that might contribute to erosion if it’s not repaired.” Mr Daniel said council is aware of the accident and damage and said he is unsure if it has been repaired yet.

HEALTH IN FOCUS

Flu season arriving early? By BRAD PERRY RIVERLAND doctors are bracing for an early flu season as the cold weather begins to take its toll. Local residents are being encouraged to vaccinate for the flu season in a bid to prevent spreading the illness. Berri Medical Clinic’s Doctor John Dunn said the flu season normally hits later in winter. “I think if it’s going to get bad in Adelaide it is going to get bad here because there is so much travel between the areas,� he said. “People make all these predictions but I think the thing to do is just get covered (with a vaccination) and then wait and see.� In previous years doctors have been inundated with people complaining of having the flu but instead have a cold. “We get people with colds and that sort of thing all year round,�

Volunteers needed for community transport VOLUNTEER numbers for Berri Barmera Council’s community transport scheme have reached critical levels, with at least five drivers needed to continue the service. Berri Barmera Council community development officer Andrew Haigh said the heavily used service needs drivers urgently. “The nature of the volunteers is that they are older adults and they do like their caravan holidays and winter journeys away, so we’ve got quite a number away at the moment,� he said. “We don’t have enough to operate at that current level once everyone is away.� Mr Haigh said at least five volunteers, preferably six, are needed to keep the scheme going. “The community needs the support that our service can provide,� he said. “Our Adelaide service for medical appointments is consistently booked out and we send two drivers on that trip. “Our local transport, we’ve got three vehicles on the roads most days and they are flat out.�

Dr Dunn said. “If we are going to see the flu, it’s usually around here mid to late winter. “Expect to have a cold during the winter but if you really get the flu it is a step from an ordinary cold and that is the time to come along and see a doctor.� Staying away from work or school if you have the flu can help prevent the illness spreading, according to Dr Dunn. “You have good and bad years and some years are dreadful and there is a lot of work and school absence with a huge number of people getting the flu,� he said. “The thing with the flu is if you do work with a lot of other people and you do get it, you really need to stay away so you don’t get everyone else infected. “Flu vaccines work well and there has been an uptake in flu vaccination over the years and that’s got to be helping.�

RDGP: International doctors vital to region THE Riverland Division of General Practice (RDGP) believes removing a policy which sees overseas trained doctors working in regional areas as part of a 10 year moratorium would have a negative impact on the region. Earlier this month the Australian Medical Association (AMA) called for the policy to be scrapped stating it is unfair to make international graduates work in regional areas. AMA said working in rural areas should be made voluntary for international doctors as the environment is often too challenging and the proper support measures are not in place. However, speaking on behalf of RDGP, Doctor David Rosenthal said phasing out the 10 year ruling would impact the region. “If the program was stopped suddenly there would be many rural and remote communities with a shortage of gps,� he said. “Phasing out too soon poses a risk. “Without putting in place decent incentives and preparation for people to come into areas such as ours is not good policy.� The Riverland has a large contingency of international doctors and Dr Rosenthal said the area is thankful for the support given by overseas graduates.

Australian doctors to accept jobs in rural areas such as the Riverland in the coming years. “I think the thoughts are shifting to not having as much emphasis on international medical graduates having to come to the country,� he said. “We all are hoping and expecting that over the next three to five years there will be more Australian trained doctors and medical students available for rural areas. “There has been a huge investment in rural medical training and rural medical student exposure to training in rural areas. “I think there will be more Australian students and junior doctors who are available to do that so the important thing is to now make sure those doctors are supported with appropriate training positions for rural practice.�

■DOCTOR: Waikerie based Ken Wanguhu is one of many international doctors working in the Riverland at the moment. “We’ve been very well served by international medical graduates who have come here and really taken the load off the doctors who were labouring away previously,� he said. “A number of them have done pretty well, attracted their own practice and their own patients

Funds from Morgan event to benefit riverfront project

Hunger for cooking

By BRAD PERRY

n project: Playground equipment was recently installed on the Morgan riverfront. By CALLUM TRIFONOFF MONEY raised from Sunday’s Day on the Farm at Cordola, Pelican Point, will go towards the Morgan Riverfront Precinct project. In just its fourth year, the event has continued to grow in popularity and Morgan Community Development and Tourism Association media liaison Julie Dawson Daniels said the event is beneficial for the Mid-Murray region. “The riverfront precinct is coming along slowly but surely,” Julie said. “We can see some improvements down there now which is fantastic because it’s a lovely bit of the world.” The Day on the Farm event will attract busloads of people from outer Riverland towns to Morgan for the day. Among the local produce on sale at the Day on the Farm will be sauces, relishes and jam, while beer and wine will also be available for the adults. Entertainment will be provided by The Rusty Boys and Freddie and the Beanz. Julie said the day out is a great social event. “The friendship’s fantastic because people come along and bring the houseboats down,” she said. “They meet up with people they may only see once or twice a year, it’s quite a big family event.” The Day on the Farm will run from 11am to 4pm this Sunday with tickets costing $30. Nibbles, a hot roast lunch and a complimentary glass of wine will be available for patrons.

A TAFE SA Berri cookery course for local Indigenous people has proved a major success with many of those involved demonstrating plenty of skill in the kitchen. The course, organised by both TAFE SA Berri and Regional Development Australia Murraylands and Riverland, provides a Certificate I in commercial cookery based around flexible learning. Dressed in full chef uniforms, 11 Indigenous locals have impressed with basic food handling techniques. TAFE SA Berri hospitality and cookery lecturer Gary Webb said “Australian bushtucker” ingredients were also included in the course. “There is some real skill in the class,” Mr Webb said.

“For me it’s about getting them confident within a food environment with the hope for further work.” Mr Webb said a number of the students will use the course credentials to begin catering businesses or continue on to complete Certificate II and III in cookery. He said the participants have learnt a lot about healthy cooking. “During the course we made a fresh tomato sauce and a pasta and we had one person go home and she cooked it for her kids,” Mr Webb said. “Thursday night for her was takeaway night and the kids all asked her if they could skip takeaway night and have that tomato pasta again.” Regional Development Aus-

tralia Murraylands and Riverland’s Julie Robertson and Eric Cook, of TAFE SA Berri’s Aboriginal Access Centre, were instrumental in helping get the course off the ground.

Shahn rubs shoulders with fashion’s elite By CALLUM TRIFONOFF SHE has been a regular at the event for the past six years but local hair and make-up artist Shahn Searle never gets tired of taking part in the L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival. Styling for model Megan Gale and for fashion designers Alex Perry and Dita Von Teese in March, Shahn described the opportunity to take part as an honour. “There’s a lot of people that try to get this type of work and to be able to return every year is a privilege for me,” she said. Shahn described Gale, Perry and Von Teese as friendly people who were extremely grateful for the work she provided.

“They love seeing their vision and their hair transformed onto the catwalk,” Shahn added. Shahn is also grateful for the support she received before and during the festival. “L’Oréal do a lot of mentoring so we’re always guided in how to create new looks and what to look for and how to put things together with the designer,” she said. As a hair and make-up artist in the Riverland, Shahn is able to demonstrate her skills locally. “It doesn’t matter what country you go to, Australian hairdressers are regarded extremely high, especially throughout Europe,” she said. “Our training here is tenfold on other countries.”

Happy travellers RIVERLANDERS are known for their friendly smiles, welcoming nature and sense of care towards bike riders on roads. At the Farmers’ Market in Berri last week my husband Alan spotted a cluster of bikes leaning against the market noticeboard and thought it would be a great photo opportunity. Soon after the owners of the bikes returned to claim their transport and I couldn’t resist asking if they were visitors to the area. It turned out they had been here on four previous occasions. The family said they were staying in a cabin at the local caravan park and that there was lots of things for the children to do such as the jumping castle, riverfront walks and riding

WELL here we go again. The start of a new week and the Coles Shell servo at Waikerie puts the price up again by one cent per litre to 153.9. So what, it is 159.9 in Adelaide. But wait, for the last two weeks or so we have been charged 152.9 cents per litre and in Adelaide the price is 142.9 or lower. I tried to ring the Coles petrol customer service number at 11am (they only work between 8am until 5pm) and I got no response. I can’t understand why the Big River Foodland and the Independent servo haven’t got together and come up with a petrol voucher giving a discount on petrol. To me it seems like this would be a winwin situation not only for the two companies but also for the community of Waikerie. This would a be a way of letting Coles know we will not be ripped off. Kevin Datson, Waikerie.

n crowd: Riverlanders turned out in droves to various dawn services on Anzac Day, including at Loxton. Photo: Brad perry

Region remembers By CALLUM TRIFONOFF ANZAC Day dawn services around the region yesterday were believed to be attended by almost record numbers with many braving the cold to pay their respects to the fallen soldiers of war. Around 800 people attended the dawn service at the Upper Garden of Memory and Barmera RSL Club's Geoffrey Neighbour said he was pleased to see so many faces. “The Anzac Spirit is going well,” he said. “After the service, a game of twoup was played as well.” Renmark's Anzac Day events kicked off with a dawn service fol-

lowed by a traditional parade from the Renmark Club to the Cross of Sacrifice. Renmark RSL Club president Roger Edmonds said around 300 people turned out for the day. “Being a lot of soldiers in the area, Anzac Day is taught in schools so there is good spirit shown by people of all ages,” Mr Edmonds said. “Anzac Day means a lot to the town and for me personally.” At dawn services in Loxton and Waikerie, those present commented it was the most people in attendance they had ever seen. Many young people went along to dawn services in the Mallee with

Pinnaroo reporting around 120 people of all ages at the traditional event. “The theme for our show this year was 'they also serve' so we're recognising the women who served in the war as well,” Pinnaroo RSL Club's Cameron Gasmier said. “We had our breakfast up at the clubrooms after the service and to see so many young people there means young people show recognition of the day.” In the Mid-Murray, Swan Reach and Blanchetown had strong showings. “The rain started to fall as we set up but it cleared in time for the service which was pleasing,” Swan Reach RSL Club’s Bob Nelmes said.

at the top of their list FOR the Jarvis family in Berri, Mother’s Day is all about spending time as a family. On May 13, husband Peter and daughter Isabella will treat wife and mother Lisanne to a stress-free day as appreciation for the love and companionship she gives them. “It’s all about ‘what would you like to eat for the day? What would you like to watch on TV?’ without the ‘oh, do we have to?’” Lisanne laughed. “It’s a good chance to slow down a little bit, just to have a good excuse to say ‘it’s just about me today’.” Every year, as a Jarvis Mother’s Day tradition, Isabella gives her mother the gift of pyjamas. To the Jarvis family, showering Lisanne with gifts is not what Mother’s Day is about. “It’s not about gifts or bought cards, it’s just about homemade appreciation,” she said. If there is one thing Lisanne loves about being a mum, it is the life experiences she can pass down to her daughter. “I used to go horse riding, that’s a really good experience to have,” she said. “As kids we always used to go swimming in the river and the river’s not how it used to be and not as inviting for swimming but you think this is something that you’ve got to do with your children. “You love watching them

Kids make cards, create presents and buy their mum gifts for the big day. I think this a great chance to give your mum the attention and affection that she deserves. Every mother deserves a bit of recognition! Think about it kids, mothers do our washing, shopping, cooking and caring for us all at once.

On Mother’s Day for me personally, I buy my mum (pictured) some chocolate and I make her cups of tea. My sister makes her cards with ‘I love you mum’ written all over them. This is a day to truly make your mum see just how much you mean to her. Try and help out and don’t forget to remind your parents to give their mothers a little something to smile about.

The two-and-a-half-yearold twins were born premature, which can often cause health problems. Ebony and husband Phil are thankful to have two healthy boys. “We know we are very lucky to have them,� Ebony said. “The new words that they say, the new looks that they give and when they come up to you and give you a big hug, it makes it all worth it. ■BUSY: Berri’s Ebony Cresp with twin sons Will and Eli.

“Just being around them when they do different and special things.� The twin factor means Ebony often has her hands full. “There are no days off, not even on Mother’s Day being that they’re twins,� she laughed. “There’s just easier days, when dad’s around.� Mother’s Day has always been something special to Ebony who feels mums deserve a big pat on the back. “It was always a day for me to do something really special for my mum,� she said. “Mums do work hard and Mother’s Day is just a day to realise that. “I don’t think I realised what is involved in being a mum until I became one.�

About 19 per cent of mums named “having a special breakfast� an essential component to a great Mother’s Day, 44 per cent had to get their own breakfast last year. Twenty five per cent of mothers said that breakfast was their favourite time of day to relax and enjoy a cup of tea.

The best advice my mother ever gave me...with Berri’s Barry Phillips FONDLY I recall my mum always reminding me to pull up my school socks as I left for school (both primary and high school) with an almost as quick question of whether I had a hanky in my pocket. As simple as these two memories are, upon reflection I gather my

BY

BARRY PHILLIPS mum was always intent on me either looking neat and tidy or being prepared for the worst. Her advice worked well as I never leave without a

hanky in my pocket today. Overriding these two fondly recalled memories, my mother did, on many occasions as I grew up, and even to this day when the situation arises, reminds me that “if you don’t ask, you’ll never know�. Hence when I asked my

now wife Jill to marry me, my mum did remind me back then (1971), that if I hadn’t asked Jill, I would never know if she would marry me. We are nearly hitting 40 years of marriage and my mum is a year off 90. So all is good and the advice worked well.

It is all about love

Still having to do housework was listed as the most “disappointing” thing about Mother’s Day by 18 per cent of mums. Survey results suggest that while you are cleaning the house/doing the chores, make sure your mother is comfortable, relaxed and has reading material readily available.

LOXTON woman Lorraine Fielke is forever grateful to her mother for teaching her the lifeskills she has today. Growing up, Lorraine saw her mother Linda Thiele as a quiet house wife and mother of her three children, Lorraine, Erica and Irma. Linda taught Lorraine many skills both around home and about life in general. Of those skills which Lorraine still uses today are cooking, sewing, ironing and cleaning. “She never worked outside the home so she was always there,” Lorraine said. “We never had to worry about going home to a dark house.” Lorraine said the way people celebrate

Mother’s Day has changed since she was young. “Today kids are into sport, whereas in our day you went to church,” she said. “We always had a special Mother’s Day service at church and lunch with the mothers and once I was married, mum and dad would always come out to the farm.” Both Lorraine and 94-year-old Linda agree that mothers deserve special recognition, especially this Mother’s Day on May 13. “We do so much for love,” Lorraine said. “It is a volunteer decision but we love to do it, we love our kids and we do it willingly.”

Commanding respect on and off the field SHE commands respect both on the football field and at home and this Mother’s Day, Bernadette Hoffmann will be a busy woman. Commencing umpiring during the 2011 Riverland Football League season, Bernadette became the first woman to blow the whistle in a Riverland A grade game in the round one clash between East Murray and MoorookKingston. She said she was “overwhelmed” and “chuffed” to be given the task but said it can be difficult combining her umpiring commitments with being a mum of five children. While she does not get a break from everyday life on Mother’s Day, Berna-

dette said every year her family prepare breakfast especially for her. Being involved in the RFL gives Bernadette the chance to see her son Jasper grow and develop in the game of football. “I find that I’ve given all my time with my children to netball because I had four girls (Kiara, Tiane, Ebony-Rose and Tekira) and now I’ve got one son,” she said. “It’s a way that I can get out there and watch and learn the rules with him.” Bernadette enjoys being a role model to her children and offering advice when they need it. “They look up to you and 99 per cent of the time, the first word out of their mouths is always

SPOTLIGHT The solar specialists LIKE many great enterprises, Alternative Energy Engineering had humble beginnings. Starting in a backyard shed in Morgan over 25 years ago, Alternative Energy Engineering has grown into one of the major players in the solar power industry in Australia. In the early days, founder, and now director of engineering, John Vandeleur worked with solar panels, with a maximum power of 38 watts, inverters and other components which could only be classified as hobby equipment. Today, solar panels have up to 10 times the power of the early versions and inverters can be up to multi megawatt size, capable of supplying power to whole towns. Since those early days, Alternative Energy Engineering has expanded and moved to a very large premises at 55 Dunk Road, Cadell. John has been directly involved in early industry bodies, which eventually led to the formation of the Clean Energy Council. Today Alternative Energy Engineering has stayed ahead of the latest industry trends and now designs, manufactures, installs and commissions diesel, wind and solar hybrid systems, grid connected systems and remote area stand alone systems for: government, mining, telecommunications, commercial, rural and domestic applications. The advances in solar technology have made it a far more cost effective alternative.

As it turned out ‘Super Looper’, at around $6/1, was beaten by half a head in the opening event on the card, while two races later ‘Cool Techno’ at $10-50/1 was first to the judge by a length.

The most comprehensive football previews in the Riverland and Mallee

RIVERLAND INDEPENDENTS - ROUND THREE MATCH OF THE ROUND

BSR v Ramco BOTH teams head into this encounter unbeaten in what is expected to be a fiercely competitive match. Blanchetown/Swan Reach is coming off a bye and will have fresh legs and home ground advantage in this clash. Jed Martinson began the season in the same fashion he finished last year and he will be a real handful for the Ramco defence. While Martinson is not overly tall, his athletic ability to jump makes him a tough match-up. Expect the likes of Brad Pittaway to get the job on him.

The midfield battle is also crucial with the Redbacks boasting Dale Payne and five goal round one recruit Troy Cowland, with Tom and Sam Sobey playing off the wings. For the Roosters, a rotating midfield includes Bryce Matthews, Max Baddack and Marcus McGrath. Daniel Donnelly also returns this week. A key in this blockbuster will be Redbacks defender Mark Coleman, with the big man’s experience proving pivotal. Former Waikerie tall timber Brad Gay booted five goals last round against Wunkar and is expected to back-up his early performance. While it is still very early in the season to be predicting finalists, it al-

ready feels like these two teams will be around the mark come September. Ramco will be looking for its star ruckman Jamie O’Callaghan to lead the team to victory but will be impacted by the loss of Cameron Hawke, who will miss at least 10 weeks with a dislocated elbow. The Redbacks have a structure that has not been seen in the Independent competition for some time. Even the best attacks seem unable to penetrate the BSR defence and end up getting burnt on the rebound. With the young guns providing plenty of run, BSR should get over the line in a tight contest by three goals.

THE OTHER GAMES

Moorook-Kingston v Brown’s Well FOOTBALL can be a very cruel game. Last round Moorook-Kingston reached a low point in its history after failing to register a goal against Paringa and losing leader Darran van der Woude to a season, possibly career, ending injury. Here is a chance for the Warriors to bounce back with Brown’s Well feeling the pressure to perform. The Bombers would be disap-

pointed with their efforts in the first two rounds and would be hoping to get a win on the board. Moorook-Kingston coach Cecil Rigney remains hopeful his team can record a win but admits there is plenty of work to be done. “Looking at the scores, Brown’s Well were beaten by East Murray by more than we were,” he said. “We’re quietly confident of a win.” Player numbers have been concerning at Moorook-Kingston, with the team playing without a bench last round.

Mark Upkett may be an inclusion, while Alex Rapisarda may be forced to play the key big man role. Matt Raison and Brett Smith will be needed in defence. Brown’s Well welcomes back Brad Perry and Brad Hoffmann and coach Lance Degenhardt wants his team to provide more run. “We need to take chances, take risks, have self-belief,” he said. Big man Brian Hampel is a key player and Pat Flavel was good last round. Brown’s Well should overcome a spirited Warrior outfit by five goals.

Wunkar v Cobdogla COBDOGLA performed one of the biggest turn arounds in Riverland Independent football when it defeated Lyrup last round. The rebuilding Eagles injected a number of young players into the team with great effect. While Wunkar’s effort against Ramco was valiant, having 21 scoring shots. Last season’s two bottom teams face off in what could be a vital match for each side. If the Eagles can manage a second consecutive win, they suddenly find themselves knocking on the door of the top teams. They have the firepower to score with veteran Darrell Tillbrook justifying his deci-

sion to come out of retirement by kicking goals and Josh Watkins providing spark. Graeme Dyer is likely to match-up with Wunkar forward in Lincoln Evans and Steven Crouch may line-up on Tillbrook. Daniel Evans will need to fire this round if the Bulldogs are going to have any chance. After transferring to Ramco during the off-season, Cobdogla defender Zac Walker returned to the Eagles and his inclusion will be a welcome boost. The Bulldogs will be hoping university student Ian Worsfold is available after a best-on-ground effort for his team against Ramco. Both teams have got some talented players but given Cobdogla’s tremendous win against last year premiers, we are backing the Eagles.

MALLEE FOOTBALL LEAGUE MATCH OF THE ROUND

Karoonda v Lameroo

o only

$37,990 $3 $37 $ 37

IT may take some weeks for Karoonda to get used to its new team with eight fresh players in the starting line-up last round. Karoonda’s strength relies in its defence with Jarred Graetz, Brodie Chinner and Eli Koch all standing strong. Playing coach Ben Quinn appears to not only be a great leader but also a handy ball winner. Corey Knight is expected to have another big season, while Luke Hocking’s seven goals last round proves he is dangerous

around goal. Lameroo managed a first up win against Murrayville with veterans Brad Zerk and Tom Bell leading the way. After beginning his career as a small forward, Josh Ridgway has developed nicely into a key midfielder, while Matt Ridgway is also reliable. We are tipping Shane Agelis to feature heavily on the scoreboard this season, along with Ricky Hunter. With both teams having many opportunists around goals, expect Karoonda to win in a close but high scoring contest.

BDT v Pinnaroo (Coonalpyn) REIGNING premiers Border Downs/Tintinara will be unsure what to expect this round from an improved Pinnaroo. The Crows defeated Peake last round but will be hoping to put in stronger performances as the season shapes up. Ruckman Ty McKenna returns this round, along with Josh Keller. With a functioning forward line including Kevin Kock (five goals) and Shane Binns (three goals), BDT has goalkicking talent. A solid midfield is composed of Clint and Lachlan Richardson, Chad Kennett, Jack Zacker, Jarred Brock and Jarred Sampson.

For Pinnaroo, a competitive effort in round one appears to be the beginning of an eventful season. Recruit Tyron Bennetts proved his worth early, while Anthony Lippis leads well. Injuries to veteran Sunyl Vogt and young gun Alex Keogh will hurt with both possibly missing a month of football. The big Nicholls boys continue to have an influence with Chad, Ryan and Wade providing height across the ground. From all accounts 14-year-old Rory O’Driscoll proved himself on the big stage in his A grade debut on the weekend. Last year BDT would have belted Pinnaroo but this is a different Suparoos team which will keep the scores close.

BOTH teams recorded first up losses last round and each needs a win to improve its start to the season. Murrayville lost to Lameroo last round but its recruits showed why it will be more than competitive this season. Nicholas Rees, Nicholas Noblett, Daniel Fry and Thomas Bailey all put in strong performances first up. Coach Michael Worsman will also have a big influence after missing most of 2011

with injury. It will be an interesting season for Peake, who matched it with BDT for most of the match last weekend. Scott Feltus appears to be a proven target up forward booting five goals. Patrick Casey and Chad Freaks will need to perform for Peake to be in this contest. Kieran Jaensch also injects speed into the Peake team. In what should be a close match, Murrayville’s home ground advantage is predicted to be the difference in the end.

RIVERLAND FOOTBALL LEAGUE-ROUND MATCH OF THE ROUND

Barmera-Monash v Renmark THERE has been plenty of hype around Barmera-Monash in the lead up to the season as the club attempts to win its first A grade flag since 1989. The Roos take on a regenerated and unpredictable Renmark team. Recruit Tyler Baldock is expected to play a major role in the ruck against Nathan Farr, while the Roos midfield is as strong as any in the competition. New faces in the middle this season include Sam Elliott and Ryan Burns, while Michael Smart and Jack Selfe have the football brains to be big ball winners. There is no doubt Matt Camplin returns to the club a stronger player and he will have an immediate impact in the middle. As will Adam Bryant and Trevor Thorpe. The Roos will be at almost full strength with a decision on Matt Leyson’s return from a knee operation to be decided. Other than that, the Roos boast a backline with 2011 Whillas Medalist Dillon Millard, brother Danny, Justin Bonney and Aaron Manning. Up forward Murray Middleton,

Mark Elliottt and Robert Price have the talent to provide scoreboard pressure. For Renmark, its forward line with Steven Pitt and Craig Seekamp is an exciting prospect. Early word is that the Roos may sacrifice the ruck duties of Baldock to play him on goalkicking ace Pitt, who is expected to play deep in the forward line. Smart and Dillon Millard may need to shrug tags or tight opposiotion. Twenty-two-year-old Jaryd Rowe is vice-captain this season and may need to shut down the Roos’ key play makers. Barmera-Monash coach Lyndon Burns said he will take each game as it comes. “Until you play everyone, you don’t know what to expect. You have to respect the opposition,” he said. Renmark coach Brett Blackwell said the team is at full strength. “We have to be switched on. You can upset any team in this competition, especially at the start of the season,” he said. The stage is set for a huge opening game Lakeside and we predict Barmera-Monash will record a marginal win over a galant Renmark.

Waikerie wins tight encounter on Anzac Day WAIKERIE started the season with a hard fought five point win against Loxton North in the Anzac Day clash yesterday. The Magpies held off a fast finishing Panther team. Steven Braun was the dominant figure on the ground in the first half as the Magpies took a 26 point lead into the main break. Loxton North lacked forward options with Geordie Franks sneaking an opportunistic goal before half time. A five goal to four term in the third quarter saw North claw its way back. Jamie Ferguson was all over the ground, while Ben Miller was good in the ruck. The final quarter was a seesawing affair with the Magpies holding on for the win. Andrew Bachmann booted four goals and Joseph Haines and Ben Venning were superb. Panther defender Josh Voigt went down with an injury early in the match and was a big loss.

On THE mark All of the Riverland and Mallee football news, views and rumours RENMARK is “getting used to life without Benno”. Coach Brett Blackwell said he does not think Ryan Bennett will return this season Moorook-Kingston’s Darran van der Woude will consider retiring from football after requiring surgery on his leg. IN last week’s Armchair Experts we said the 2011 premier was Paringa in the Anzac Day match preview. This was not correct as Lyrup has won backto-back titles. On a positive note, the response we received about this error showed people are reading!

THE OTHER GAME

Berri v Loxton

84/.

HI

I



TALENT runs deep in both Berri and Loxton teams this season but this round one clash will come down to which team has the most chemistry. Both teams will almost field completely different teams to 2011. Wooden spooners Loxton remain a mystery. Leigh Kruger, Mitch Fazekas, Kale Smith and Josh Norman all come into a team which has lost experience. One feels goals may be hard to come by with a reliance on Jamahl Liddle. Proven ball winner Nick Uren (pictured), rebounder Ralph Liddle and quick footed Pat Portolesi make up a strong midfield. The Tigers’ weakness is a lack of height with Craig Fisher a key player in the ruck.

Berri has done lots of late season recruiting and has pulled together a team which is untested. The forward line plays small, which could be an advantage. Scott Murphy, Kirk Harwood, Jamie Milburn and Ryan Porter are all expected to feature near the goals. A strong midfield featuring Peter Safralidis and Adam Beauchamp is the engine room for Berri. Darren Marner, Porter, Mitch Blackie and Wilson will debut for the Demons. Loxton coach Mick Zerna is looking forward to Saturday. “It’ll be a totally different line-up this year,” he said. “We’re going to be a work in progress. “We want to be competitive every single game, win, lose or draw. You can upset anyone.” Zerna said the Tigers will

be keeping a close eye on Beauchamp, Harwood, Jamie Milburn and West Adelaide junior Lachlan Jennings Adam Proud, Jeremy Sumner and Jono Walding could debut for the Tigers. Berri coach Allan Brand said it may take some time for players to adapt to his coaching style. “Up until the end of the first round, you don’t know where you are opposed to other teams,” he said. “We’re confident with the playing group and I’d like to think we’ve got a good chance.” With home ground advantage Berri should overcome Loxton in a close game.

Riverland Netball Association season begins tomorrow as...

Renmark aims to defend title ■ THE 2012 Riverland netball season starts tomorrow night at the Loxton Stadium with the early 6.30pm game between Loxton and Berri to be followed by the official opening and the presentation of the Marg Lambert Anzac Medal from 7.45pm. Barmera will then meet Renmark at 8.30pm. With the withdrawal of Waikerie from the top grade, Loxton North has the first round bye. At Renmark, long serving Ann Noack is the only A1 coach from last season to remain in her position and she will immediately face calling on the club’s considerable player depth to cover the temporary loss of Denika Gartery and Sonja Modlinski, the more long term absence of players like Amy Martinson, Amy Leesue and champion defender Leanne Menz and the move of Lyn Sweeney to Loxton from last year’s premiership line-up. The return of Jesse-Lee Jones and promise of a host of players from the junior ranks will be crucial in the team rebuild. Sally Wright replaces Skye

George as coach at Loxton, the runner-up in 2011, and she will inherit the most settled squad in the five team competition. Sweeney’s transfer from Renmark and the emergence of a group of promising youngsters led by Sarah Benson will be a boost. Berri is another club that has lost a host of players from a young team that threatened the top teams last season. Tori Brown takes over as coach from Chris Eleftheriadis but faces covering the absence of players like the association’s 2011 best and fairest award winner Kimberley Wade, Michelle Wenman and Kelly Scholefield. There are reportedly some new recruits in the camp but the A1 line-up will rely heavily on established youngsters Taylee Howard and, when basketball commitments allow, Ellee Eleftheriadis. Promising Berri rookies in the season ahead include Rachel Shotton, Paige Lloyd, Stephanie Sarro and Tymeka Burns. With Vicki Mules standing down, new Loxton North mentor Kylie Wooldridge has declared that

■ TITLE DEFENCE: Renmark A1’s Sonja Modlinksi, coach Ann Noack and Denika Gartery ready for the RIverland netball season, which begins tomorrow night. Photo: CALLUM TRIFONOFF she will focus on promoting top A2 players and the club’s promising juniors to cover the almost complete loss of the 2011 A1 unit. Erika Sporn, Hana Learhinan, Marlee George and Mikayla Graetz are amongst juniors expected to make an impact at senior level. The word rebuild also applies at Barmera with Sue Millard taking the coaching reins from Traci-Lee Jones and immediately surrounding herself with qualified assistants, AFL style.

Talented players including Charlotte Richardson, Jesse-Lee Jones and star goal shooter Tess Dempsey have gone but there are huge wraps on Mackella Armfield, experienced Sue Whitbourne will be up and about after some maintenance work on a knee and juniors like Jules Morgan, Meg Gillespie and Katie Saville have already shown they have a role to play at top level. And there is talk of a new approach to fitness.

Meanwhile, the Waikerie club has opted to enter its top side at A2 level under coach Joanne Elsdon as it strives to rebuild. It will be interesting to see how long it is before they aim at the top grade again as it seems that for most clubs new look sides are going to be the order of the day and it would possibly be an ideal opportunity for a club to develop players and line-ups against opposition of a similar age and standard.

Soccer season begins Obstacles no deterrent for cycling event ■ THE Riverland Soccer season kicks off on Sunday at the Steve Poutakidis Sports Grounds in Renmark with a full day from 8.30am taking in junior gradesto Under 16, B Grade, Open Girls and A Grade Men. In the A Grade, early indications are that there will be a new look about a number of the team line-ups. Kevin Barber remains as senior coach at defending champions Barmera United and with a number of his premiership players missing for a variety of reasons, he looks likely to present a senior opportunity to a number of promising juniors. Renmark Olympic started the season brightly under reappointed coach Nick Sotiroulis

in the Steve Poutakidis Cup and with a large squad creating a ‘pressure for places’ situation, they will attack the season proper with confidence. Steve Atkinson takes over as coach at Berri River Rangers and appears to have brought some new enthusiasm with him. He has induced a number of key players back to the club and promising youngster Josh Ekisa has transferred from Barmera. Loxton also has a new coach in Shane McPherson and boasting increased numbers, will be boosted by the signing of former Barmera star Geordie Franks and also by the return of several past players. This week Renmark plays Loxton and Barmera meets Berri.

Radio for the whole family

■ THE Norwood Cycling Club’s Event Coordinator for the annual Riverland Cycling Weekend Barry Skinner was in the area early this week working on arrangements for the 2012 event to be held on Saturday and Sunday, May 26 and 27. This will be the 38th year the city club has held the rich two days of racing in our area with a record amount approaching $40,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs in 2011. And of course, it is also Barry Skinner’s 38th occasion at organising the event, albeit interspersed by a number of retirements from the position that turned out to be thankfully only temporary as far as the weekend has been concerned. Talking to Barry on Monday, I quickly gathered his passion for the event and its feature race, the Tour of the Riverland, has not diminished in the least. His untiring commitment to organising the weekend has led to one of cycling’s most prestigious events being staged in the Riverland with some of the sport’s leading competitors being attracted here over the years.

■ CYCLING: The Riverland Cycling Weekend is deep into the planning stages. Understandably in arranging such a major event, Barry has encountered some obstacles from time to time but after the 2011 Tour of the Riverland and its support races being rated amongst the best ever, you cannot imagine any issues standing in the way of another successful weekend. Roadworks on Renmark Avenue and one of Barry’s local allies, former Riverland Cycling Club President Lee

Stevens having moved to Western Australia, were matters Barry dealt with on Monday. The Riverland Cycling Weekend and its tour race that travels some 80 kilometres across our region, is one of our biggest annual sporting events. Anyone interested in taking up some excellent sponsorship opportunities or assisting in any way at the event should phone Barry Skinner, 0412 344 381.

■ WUNKAR defeated Ramco by four goals 31-27 in a keen A grade clash in Independent netball last Saturday but a win to Ramco 40-26 in the B grade game meant honours were shared on the day. Best players in the A grade for Wunkar were Benita Paull and Kim Schulz and in the B grade Miriam Harris and Renay Hockey, while Ramco’s best were Jacqui Wood and Sharna Linke in the A’s and Kara Irving and Lisa Norman in the B’s.

For the second week in a row, East Murray won both grades with Saturday’s victories 38-20 in the A grade and 51-40 in the B’s against Browns Well. Bianca Schache and Amber Dorward starred for the East Murray A grade, while Hayley Reichstein and Stacey Brown were best for Brown’s Well. In the B grade the respective best players were Johanna Hall and Marissa Redden and Narella Borgmeyer and Chantelle Voigt.

■ AT LAST Wednesday’s Stableford at the Berri Golf Club Cynthia Wait, with 37 points, was the winner, one clear of Joe Hocevar, who despite a birdie at the sixteenth, finished runner-up for the second week in a row. Saturday’s Stableford went to Stephan Wade with 42 points with the runner-up on this occasion being the in-form Cynthia Wait, also with a birdie at the sixteenth, on a countback from Janine Adams, both on 41 points. Another Stableford on Sunday was taken out by Daniel Dawson on 34 points, three clear of Mark Wilksch. At Waikerie on Saturday, Derek Greenfield won a stroke event in Division One with a

score of 77/69 and in Division Two, Justin Neideck, 87/67, showed the way. Other leading scores belonged to Grant Carnell 84/70, Wayne Morris 83/70, Peter Richardson 93/71 and Darrell Waddell, who had won a Stableford on the previous Wednesday, scoring 84/71. Meanwhile, the minor round in Men’s Pennants concludes on Saturday with an exciting battle taking place for positions in the finals. While Loxton appears likely to end up on top in A grade, it is possible that all five teams could wind up on two wins and two losses with those to proceed to the finals to be decided on percentage.

The pair, through their association with the Outreach Program, will look at the possibility of establishing an orphanage in the North of India with a concentration on young females who it is understood do not seem to receive much support in the region. “We just want to see what the needs are and to establish an association with some reliable local people that we can work with at that end in establishing a facility over there,” Garry said. “We aim to break the street kids’ cycle. “I have discussed the situation with Steve Waugh who does similar work in the South of India.” Garry acknowledges that travelling to the particular region in India is not without its security issues but he said steps have been taken to make sure the trip, which ends on May 8, goes as smoothly as possible.

He played some cricket at Aldinga. At Kapunda he coached under 15 football and after arriving in the Riverland has, with his wife Lyn, filled numerous roles in different sports both in following the paths of their children Wayne and Melissa and beyond.

Garry has coached the Berri Football Club’s under 15s, the Berri Primary School soccer team, been involved with Riverland Junior Soccer teams, been a baseball scorer, vice president at the netball club in the time its courts were moved near the tennis complex and today remains as the club’s ‘stats man’. After being involved at junior level initially, he eventually became President at Berri-view Tennis Club, a position he has filled for 11 years, has been associated in International tournaments coming to the Riverland and for some eight years has been President of the RLTA. Garry is a life member at Berri-view but admits to taking a backseat to his wife Lyn, whose outstanding service has given her life membership both at the Berri tennis and netball clubs. With their daughter now living in Brisbane and son in Adelaide, Garry and Lyn could be forgiven for throttling back on their busy schedules but that is simply not their style. In fact Garry is currently off in India “to see what we can do as far as some disadvantaged youngsters are concerned”.

Riverland hockey stars impress at champs ■ FOUR Riverland players, Berri’s Merinda McMahon in the women’s team and Dalton Casey (Renmark) and Sean Burgess and Aaron Evans (Loxton) in the mens, have just represented South Australia at Australian Under 18 Hockey Championships. Merinda played all nine games as SA finished fourth at the women’s tournament at the Newcastle International Hockey Centre. After five rounds of the competition, despite a 6-1 loss to NSW, SA actually headed the table by two points from Queensland with victories over ACT, Tasmania, Northern Territory and Victoria. However, two further defeats to Western Australia 1-0 and Queensland 4-1 in the round robin competition saw SA slump to fourth with 12 points, behind Queensland 16, NSW 15 and Victoria 13 with WA just missing the

top four with 10 points. In the qualifying finals, Queensland again proved too strong for SA 4-0 and Victoria defeated NSW 4-2. On the final day, NSW was untroubled against SA winning 6-0, while in the grand final the strong Queensland side won 6-1 over Victoria with one of the stars of the event, Murphy Allendorf, scoring two goals for Queensland to take her to the top of the tournament tally with eight overall. Dalton, Sean and Aaron also played all nine games for the men’s team at Queensland’s State Hockey Centre but apart from a three all draw against Tasmania, SA went without a victory in the round robin stage. The final four was NSW 21 points, Victoria 18, Queensland 15 and WA 12 with SA sharing bottom position with Tasmania on one point. The two cellar dwellers did

Then on the last day, Tasmania continued to storm home defeating SA 6-3, thanks mainly to a five goal haul by Alex Eldridge that took his championship total to 10 goals. Eldridge’s total did not top

Biggest prize pool for one day at Loxton clay champs ■ ONE of Australia’s leading importers of clay target products and ammunition has injected generous sponsorship into local field and game clubs. The Bruce Burns GB–Corsivia 75 Target Sporting Clays championship held at the Loxton range last Sunday carried $1200 in prize money, the biggest pool ever presented for a one day event at the club. To follow, this weekend at the Renmark-Berri club will be the two day GB–Corsivia 150 Target Classic. The competition at Loxton was held in windy but sunny conditions and was the first State Team Qualifying Shoot for the year with points gained going towards selection for the SA squad to take part in the National Championships in Victoria in mid November. Forty three shooters participated in the event with entrants from as far away as Adelaide, Keith and Mount Gambier. Targets presented for the day were of a technical nature and some became challenging when influenced by the wind later in proceedings. However the conditions made little difference to Mount Gambier’s Jeremy Kent who had his casual style and

silky skills on display as he blitzed the competition and destroyed all but eight of the targets on the demanding course on the way to taking out an overall win and High Gun honours with a score of 67/75. Winners in the various classes were Kevin Nickolai (Loxton) 60/75 from Craig Ralston (Adelaide) 59/75 and Tony Trevorrow (Renmark-Berri) 54/75 in AA Grade. In A Grade, Adelaide visitors Allen Marden 60/75, Julian Torresan 60/75 and Greg Dawes 59/75 filled the placings. Greg Clark (Keith) 55/75, took out B Grade, Loxton’s Mike Woosnam 47/75 won C grade, Richard Dean (Adelaide) won Veterans with 58/75, Deanna Van Der Zalm (Renmark-Berri) 48/75 was the Ladies winner and Kailan Markham (Renmark-Berri) claimed Juniors with 54/75, ahead of his clubmate Mathew Redway 41/75. Other local shooters prominent in the results included Loxton’s Jeremy Pippos, Paul Pippos and Renmark-Berri’s Steve Markham, Warren Beer, Rob Shawyer, Jo Brown and Sheryl Beer. This weekend’s event at RenmarkBerri has 75 targets each day across a number of grades.

the goalscorers however as NSW’s Blake Govers scored an incredible 15 goals in nine games with his teammate Jack Elliott contributing nine, while South Australia’s Daniel Pena scored 10 of his team’s 17 tournament goals. Dalton Casey and Sean Burgess each scored twice. With NSW’s heavy artillery of goal scorers, it was not surprising that the major round played out with NSW defeating WA 5-2, Victoria defeating WA 7-3 and then in the grand final, NSW grabbing the title 5-3 against Victoria. Meanwhile in local hockey, Riverland and Barossa shared the spoils when the associations met in a Team of the Year Challenge at Glassey Park last weekend. Both matches were won decisively with the Riverland defeating the visitors 6-1 in the women’s game and Barossa winning the men’s match 6-2.

Superdogs win first two outings ■ AN 86 point win in a scrappy affair against Mid North, 1-12-15 (99) to 2-1 (13) at Spalding last Sunday, made it two wins from two games for the Riverland Superdogs in the 2012 AFL Masters competition. As the scores indicate, the visitors dominated the contest from one end of the ground to the other with the club’s most eligible bachelor Jason Trew even drilling two goals from the half back line and reformed character Brenton Fenwick, Peter Aston and Ron Foulds, also with a goal, all intercepting and rebounding strongly out of defence. Big men Sam Ingerson and Nick Kossatch did little wrong although Kossatch would not have helped his ‘Dog Tag’ award voting with his friendly fire attack on former coach Darren Tieste. Another downside to the

outing was George Clooney look alike Paul Arnold clashing with 2012 coach Shane Healy on being chastised over his failure to convert some gift wrapped chances up forward. Paul considers himself versatile so the coach obviously agreed and moved him into defence. Kenny Karpany was as usual mercurial and booted a long 60 metre goal, Mark Neumann was another excellent performer and Ben Meuret made the difficult centre half forward post look easy. The Superdogs play new team Adelaide University Greys at Lyrup Oval starting at 1pm on Sunday, May 6. New members for the over 35 years competition are always welcome with Superdogs training at Lyrup Oval at 6.30pm on Wednesdays.

Top start to hockey tour

BRETT Stokes, who is travelling overseas with the senior Australian Country team as assistant coach, telephoned me on Tuesday morning after the group had just completed the Thailand part of their tour and were on the way to Malaysia. Brett (pictured) explained that the team had received a bit of a shock when told after some 30 hours without sleep on the trip to Thailand, that they were to play against Chinese Taipei that night. Perhaps not surprisingly then the weary Aussies went down 2-0. However after some rest, the other results have gone Australia’s way, 4-1 over Singapore, which in the past has normally won such matches, 8-0 against the Thailand National team and 12-0 over Kazakhstan. Brett has been amazed by the different situations surrounding the teams playing in the tournament. “In one case we actually found a bus for one of the teams and provided them with water bottles and other requirements because they obviously lacked resources and needed help,” he said. “On the other hand, we shared a hotel with countries like Oman and there was gold everywhere on the group and an abundance of officials and equipment. “Attending President’s and Tournament dinners was also an eye opener. “At the President of Thailand Hockey’s three story mansion, there were unbelievable facilities and luxury everywhere and four Rolls Royces in the driveway.” Brett has been taken back by the popularity of the Australian team amongst the other countries. “They all seem to want to say hello and to get as much of Australia as they can,” he said.

Cricket association survives ■ A MEETING of the Mid Murray Cricket Association on Monday night voted unanimously to admit new club Perponda into the competition for 2012-13 season. Perponda had indicated an interest in joining the MMCA at a previous meeting with delegates taking the issue back to their clubs for discussion. With Cadell withdrawing from the association at the end of last season, other clubs still affiliated are Waikerie Gold, Blanchetown/Swan Reach, Morgan and Claypans, who were not represented on Monday night. It is understood Claypans is still considering options that best suit its junior and senior structure.

Hoffmann’s senior debut ■ RECENTLY this column dealt with the rapidly unfolding career of promising young Loxton basketballer Tyson Hoffmann who had been chosen in the Under 23 squad for the Eastern Mavericks Club in the Adelaide competition and also invited to train with the club’s senior ABA group. Well the situation seems to be only getting better for the teenager as he sets his sights on progressing as far as he can in the sport. Only a few weeks after my article, he was chosen in the ABA team that played against an undefeated North Adelaide at Mount Barker last Saturday night. Mavericks went down by 18 points but Tyson grabbed 15 minutes of court time and continued to impress the right people in an outstanding debut at that level.

Loxton’s new kit for round one REPORT BY

CALLUM TRIFONOFF LOXTON United will create Riverland Soccer Association history this Sunday by becoming the first club to have personalised shirts worn during games. The shirts, which will be worn from under six level to A grade, have generated excitement around the club. After struggling for player numbers in previous years, Loxton United will be given a boost by the introduction of personalised shirts. Loxton United president Mark Kershaw said the new additions will bring a sense of pride to the club.

The future of the Mid Murray Cricket Association has been decided

“They’re going to be recognised on the field,” he said. “Spectators or other players or referees will know who that person is, by the name not necessarily just the number. “Especially for the junior kids, the parents see it as a bit of a keepsake. “Once they’ve grown out of it, it’s something that they can maybe pass down to their kids many years down the track or hang it up on the wall.” The shirts are just one of the many signs that Loxton United is on the rise, compared to where it was three years ago when there was no A grade men’s team.
