State Government announces the amalgamation of Renmark primary schools

TWO BECOMES ONE

By BRAD PERRY

TWO Renmark schools will amalgamate from the beginning of next year following an announcement by the State Government yesterday. Renmark Primary School and Renmark Junior Primary

School will merge as one in a move which is being praised by education officials. Murray and Mallee assistant regional director Brian Featherston said the schools will share funding of $2.2 million towards the amalgamation.

He said the State Government decision provides certainty for the future of the two Renmark schools. “Looking at the forward planning, we could see that the numbers at the schools were on a bit of a downward trend, so bringing the

two together, we’ll have a school of about 320 and that’s a terrific size, very similar to Berri, a bit bigger than Waikerie and a bit bigger than Barmera,� Mr Featherston said. “That size allows you to create some flexibility with class sizes and groupings of kids.

Hospital’s breakthrough project

EDITORIAL BY

BRAD PERRY

Top end accommodation AS of May next year, the Paringa cliffs will be home to a brand new world of luxury. The Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund has aided Emaroo Cottages to construct a $1.4 million project featuring three villas or units. In today’s Riverland Weekly, readers are given an insight into what the accommodation might look like once it is finished with a range of artist’s impression pictures. There is no doubt the design has a modern look about it and some real appeal. It is the sort of accommodation that will attract people from overseas for a weekend stay. In fact, the villas may even attract a number of locals hoping to get away for a night and enjoy the luxury. Upon hearing of the project I began to think about the future of the Riverland as a luxury travel destination. We have numerous sites which have river views, it is peaceful and the Riverland is certainly the ideal place to sit back with a glass of wine and relax. I wonder whether we will see more investors building unique accommodation throughout the region. Like everyone else in the region, I cannot wait to see the final product.

Anne’s ticket to the senate RENMARK businesswoman Anne Ruston was preselected in the third position on the SA Liberal Party’s 2013 senate ticket on the weekend. The Ruston’s Roses operator is now a good chance to become a senator in what is predicted to be a win for rural communities like the Riverland. Reports indicate that an expected swing to the Coalition at the federal election will help her cause. Ms Ruston has often been in the political scene as a member for the Liberal Party for 25 years, where she also assisted in Tim Whetstone’s campaign for the seat of Chaffey in 2010. The decision to run for the senator position came out of frustration as a business owner. “Like just about every other business owner, I just got to the stage where there is just only so much more burden that this government can stick on business before they just aren’t going to be viable anymore and it’s the most frustrating situation,” she said. “We are all finding that we are

“I think it’s about time we started getting some people in Canberra who actually understand the consequences of these really bad decisions.” If successful in her venture, Ms Ruston said she will remain

Funding from the amalgamation will be used to create an administration office for parents, according to Mr Featherston. The Renmark education facilities were one of 24 co-located junior primary and primary schools to be funded into a single school, bringing them in line with the 339 reception to year seven schools across the state. Schools will also

receive a one-off $100,000 transition grant as part of the process. Mr Featherston said he was approached by the Renmark schools’ governing council in 2005 about the issue of amalgamation but the idea was not supported during a vote. “There may be people that think this is going to be a decision that may see the school lose some dollars but we’ve got to focus on what’s best for the kids and bringing these two

schools together, I believe, is the best thing for the kids,” he said. Education Minister Grace Portolesi said the government will work with each of the schools through the transition phase. “It is important to remember that schools will not be closing as a result of the amalgamation process, and that students will still be able to continue to attend the same site they always have under these new arrangements,” she said.

Minister Gago to attend Berri’s Foodbank opening FOODBANK SA will officially open its Berri branch next Thursday with Regional Development Minister Gail Gago to be present. The facility is fully stocked and has already begun working with existing welfare agencies in the region. Foodbank SA general manager Leigh Royans said opening the facility will be a reward for all the effort that has gone into its establishment. “It’s a wonderful moment for a solid two years of planning and fundraising to finally get to this point where we have the official launch,” he said. “Naturally there will be

The DVD will contain over 160 historic photographs and rare footage and snippets of interviews with past and long-time residents of Berri. “We appreciate all the memories that people have donated and without them we wouldn’t be able to produce the DVD,” Mr Ison said.

Award winning architect and Riverland business combine to create...

Luxury at its finest

■ SPECTACULAR: The interior and exterior designs of three luxury accommodation units to be constructed at Paringa by May next year.

By BRAD PERRY AN award winning luxury tourism provider has been granted almost $650,000 from the Riverland Sustainable Futures Funds to build three five star holiday units on the Paringa cliffs overlooking the River Murray. The project by Emaroo Cottages is expected to cost in the vicinity of $1.4 million and be completed by May next year. Architect Paul Pruszinksi, who designed the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Adelaide, has drawn up plans for the self contained accommodation units using a modern look previously unseen

in the region. Emaroo Cottages owner Rick Edmonds said the high quality accommodation known as the Natury Emaroo Cottages Project will provide a unique experience and fill a gap in the Riverland tourism market. “Each retreat will be different from the other but they’ll be private, each one will have their own swimming pools, spas, saunas and they are going to be done to a higher than a five star standard,” he said. “We believe the time is right now for the Riverland and we’ll be having river trips and other things once we get

people here. “We can really show them what we have to offer in the Riverland. “We believe it’s a great responsibility for us to build something that is going to help the Riverland into the future.” Mr Edmonds said the designs, which took 12 months to complete, are “unusual buildings” that will truly be an experience for those who stay in them. The business, which also has deluxe accommodation in Broken Hill, Mildura and Port Hughes, plans to create an experience that will have visitors

flocking back by offering the likes of masseurs, in-house chefs cooking with local produce and health professionals. “We are going to bring in a totally different clientele into the Riverland that hopefully will be at the high end of spending as well,” he said. Mr Edmonds and wife Cathy had planned to build the project regardless of the funding but the injection of money is helping the business construct the Paringa accommodation to “a lot higher standard”. At least three full time jobs will be created once the accommodation is complete.

A MURRAY Mallee man who allegedly murdered two men at Sandalwood, near Karoonda, on Monday has had his identity surpressed in court. The 43-year-old was arrested in Adelaide after making a triple-0 phone call to police to report a shooting at a Jim Jolly Road farmhouse. It was reported that the suspect told police he was acting in self defence when two southern suburbs men were shot and killed. In the Adelaide Magistrates Court on Tuesday, prosecutors said the suspect’s image and name will be surpressed so police efforts are not prejudiced.

Backpackers leave local accommodation due to lack of work

Delayed start impacts pickers REPORT BY R

C CALLUM TTRIFONOFF BACKPACKERS are considering departing local hostels and leaving the Riverland after being told empty promises that the citrus picking would begin earlier this season. Berri Backpackers manager Till Hoffmann said pickers were told an early start to the citrus season would take place but after five weeks and no action, he said visitors are contemplating departing. “We’ve been waiting for the season to start and nothing’s happening,” Mr Hoffmann said. “When we were told there would be an early start, we actually got people in.” Mr Hoffmann also said backpackers were being turned away due to high numbers for the navel orange season.

“The problem is many backpackers have been living in share houses for the past year,” he said. Renmark Paringa Backpackers also confirmed several international visitors have been forced to live in share houses. Unlike Berri, which has a maximum number of 80 residents allowed to stay at one time at the backpackers, Renmark only has only 28 rooms. Loxton’s Harvest Trail Lodge, however, has about 40 beds available for backpackers but owner Joseph Marki said more people are expected for the navel season. “It’s probably going to fill up around the end of May,” Mr Marki said. “It’s normally very busy for a couple of months but when the navel orange season finishes, it’ll slow down.” Mr Marki said the busiest time of the year for his outlet is the navel orange season.

When h we told there would be an early start, we actually got people in.

Mr Hoffmann said producers accessing The Riverland Complex will be able to benefit from using the Berri Direct kiosk off the Old Sturt Highway. “We’ve got people interested in doing stuff on site with fresh fruit in The Riverland Complex, so they’ll be able to store, package, do whatever, with their fruit on site and sell through the store as well,” he said.

who are doing some inundation mapping as well. “I would expect it is going to take the majority of the rest of the calendar year.” Mr Siviour defended council’s decision to appoint someone outside of the Riverland. “It was advertised locally so any locals had the opportunity to apply,” he said.

Reducing the bushfire risk

â–  BURN OFF: A firefighter at a Department of Environment and Natural Resources prescribed burn in the Mallee region last week. Photo: DENR

SUBJECT to suitable weather conditions, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) will aim to undertake eight prescribed burns in parks and reserves in the South Australian Murray-Darling Basin (SA MDB) region to treat approximately 2875 hectares during autumn to reduce fuel loads and help protect against the on-going risk of bushfire. The Autumn Prescribed Burn Program commenced this year with a successful burn at Karte and Peebinga conservation parks, located approximately 50 kilometres north of Pinnaroo, on April 19 to treat a total of four hectares. DENR regional fire management officer Brett Stephens said DENR will be focussing on burns in the Billiatt Wilderness Protection Area along the northern and eastern boundaries to prevent large scale bushfires, which can be devastating for vegetation and wildlife. “A number of ecological burns will also be conducted in the re-

gion to monitor the response of vegetation in areas where the vegetation is old and senescing due to no history of fire,� Mr Stephens said. “Small burns will be undertaken using different methods and will be monitored to determine vegetation response to fire in these areas. “The results of these ecological burn trials will provide important information that may be applied to larger landscape areas with similar vegetation to promote positive ecological responses.� Mr Stephens said the prescribed burn program is a key component of the State Government’s bushfire preparedness strategy and critical in South Australia ahead of typically hot and dry summers. “Reducing fuel loads through prescribed burning is crucial as it makes it easier to control a bushfire, helps to prevent a bushfire spreading to residential areas and ultimately saves lives and property,� he added.

Government’s green light for mining to begin By BRAD PERRY THE State Government has given Murray Zircon the green light to proceed with plans to begin operations at the Mindarie Mine. Key contractors will now be appointed at the site, which went into voluntary administration in 2009 under the care of Australian Zircon. Murray Zircon spokesperson Steve McEwen said progress is now on track for processing to begin as early as September. “What it means is we can now

proceed to appoint our key contractors being our mining contractor and our logistics contractor,� he said. “We’re pleased to say that our landowners involved are reasonably positive towards Murray Zircon and we think our community consulting efforts have also produced a fairly positive attitude in the broader community towards the commencement of mining up there.� Currently the mining company is seeking expressions of interest for those wishing to work at the site.

“We’ve certainly got an employ local philosophy, it obviously all depends on the skills sets that are available to us,� Mr McEwen said. “Public interest in employment opportunities (at the mine) is quite high.� Mr McEwen said a total of about 65 jobs will be created once mining begins at the site. As far as the accommodation camp proposed for Wanbi Oval, Mr McEwen said that may be a long term option. “The lead time for those sorts

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.

Sunlands water supply suffers deterioration THE Central Irrigation Trust will review the way it manages the pipeline system in the Sunlands district following signs of deterioration. On the request of a Sunlands grower, Central Irrigation Trust obtained professional analysis on an unfamiliar filtrate found in a grower’s on-farm filtration. CIT chief executive officer Gavin McMahon said around 20 people attended a meeting at the Waikerie Golf Club on Monday night to discuss the matter. In a letter to CIT customers, Mr McMahon said the detection of fibres in water supplies is not uncommon. “The ACF products used in the Sunlands delivery system are similar to some 90,000 kilometres of pipe used for water reticulation across Australia and comparable to material

previously used in house construction including roofing and day to day items that remain in use in the community,� the letter stated. Mr McMahon told the Riverland Weekly that any concerns were addressed at the meeting. “We’ve seen some deterioration on the pipelines down there and it’s had an effect on the quality of the water,� he said. “There’s nothing major that we’ve got there that isn’t in most water supply systems, it’s just that we wanted to talk to the customers there about it. “The people that turned up were happy that we came down and spoke to them and allayed many of the fears that we’ve discovered down there. “There are things that we are doing both with domestics and with ir-

rigators, so we are looking at the way we manage it...and going to produce fact sheets for irrigators down there.�

A life away from farming S

MEGA MAY

INCE he was 14 years old, all Gary Frahn wanted to do was become a farmer and follow in the footsteps of his ancestors. The sixth generation Paringa dryland farmer worked hard to establish himself on properties close to the Victorian border, Yamba and eventually Bugle Hut, where he lives today. However, when the height of the drought hit in 2002, it was the first time Gary wondered whether he could continue in the industry. “In 2002, I can remember being out on the border property and our yields, we were only basically getting our seed back,” he said. “We made a few mistakes with the way we prepared things that season and we experimented with different farming methods. “We may have got a little bit complacent after a run of good seasons. “We had a run in lean seasons after that where we were only just keeping our heads above water. “We were fortunate that the 2001 season helped us out in 2002 but the real impact didn't hit us until 2003 and 2004.” With the burden of debt in the following years placing financial pressure on every aspect of his life and especially on wife Yvette, in 2009 Gary decided to lease his farms and leave the industry. “Sometimes you really can't base it too much on emotions,” he said. “What's the point in holding onto something that's not working and in the bigger picture we could see, that the land wasn't suited to our style of farming anymore.” However, he was not leaving farming without a vision for the future. In the 1940s, Gary's dad Mervyn was using machinery on the family farm when he discovered the small shoot of a pine tree. It began a passion for revegetation which flowed onto Gary. “I remember driving back in 2002 and feeling a little bit depressed about the yields out there as I came up our driveway at Bugle Hut,” he said. “We'd just started revegtation on

REPORT BY

BRAD PERRY our property in 1988-89 and there's these Mallee trees and pine trees there just sticking their heads above the weeds and I can remember feeling quite proud that there is something really unique happening here on this property.” So when Gary and farming wife Yvette exited the farming industry in 2009, the pair decided to develop their property into a tourism attraction, complete with 14 kilometres of walking trails through their revegetated land. In fact, it was the lush greenery that kept the Frahn's from moving away from the region. “If we hadn't undertaken the revegetation program that we started back then, we would have never stayed here on this property, we would have probably exited it,” Gary said. The Frahn's property also borders on the Noora Basin and has three salt pans amongst 35,000 planted trees. The pair have also established a farm stay and are hopeful of adding another attraction to the local tourism industry. “We just want to share here what we have with other people, we en-

joy mingling and talking to people,” Gary said. “In some instances farmers tend to worry too much about farming being their life and what are they going to do? “You can either sit back and stick your head in the hole like an ostrich or take on life and go forward. “What normally happens is when a farmer gets to a point where they've decided to stop farming, they sell up and then they leave the district or move into town and you lose generations of input, whereas the revegatation kept us here at Bugle Hut,” Yvette added. Yvette, who was Gary's next door neighbour when the pair met, has also adapted to life off the farm, becoming engulfed in her exquisite art and using it as a tool to reach out to troubled youth. “For me it's a wellbeing thing, it's like teaching people to trust themselves, to believe in themselves and to grow as human beings, while I'm busy teaching them art,” she said. “It's a beautiful process.” In fact, Mrs Frahn has organised a Moonwalk and Movie Night on May 11 at the property. Instead of the Frahns sowing seeds this winter as generations of their families would have done, they will be out planting oil Mallee and s a n - dalwood trees with a smile on their faces.

“This is an opportunity for people to sell unwanted items or things they are not using anymore and turn it into income,” he said. “To also provide others in the community the opportunity to purchase goods that might be of value to them and they can use. “It’s a fun day, we’ve got a great auctioneer and it’s a day for the family.” Catering will be provided on the day, so make sure you mark your calendar and do not miss the Mega May Auction.


Thursday May 3, 2012 – Riverland Weekly • 7 ■ PLEASED: (Clockwise from left) Fiona Margrie, Dr John Penna, Dr Harpereet Singh, Eve Rogers, Bobbie McPherson, Sarah Voight and Chantelle Norman have played a part in the ground breaking rural project.

Hospital’s rural landmark project THE Riverland Regional Hospital’s Emergency Department, with the support of River Doc’s ED, has implemented a groundbreaking rural program to monitor the signs of deteriorating patients. Described as a benchmark project in rural medicine, it is likely the Berri based hospital will now be used as a showcase in other rural areas. As a result of the project’s success, selected Riverland Regional Hospital staff will attend the seventh annual International Conference on Rapid Response Systems and Medical Emergency Teams in Sydney on Monday. Riverland Regional Hospital theatre and emergency clinical services co-ordinator Fiona Margrie, who spearheaded the project, said picking up vital

signs in the “golden hour” is a crucial element. “We did a clinical practice improvement program and as part of that we had to pick a project and the project we chose to work on was how we managed deteriorating patients in the emergency department,” she said. “We went through and audited our current practices and how we are managing things and what we wanted to do from there. “In the metropolitan areas, you have intensive care and you have everything at your fingertips, which we clearly don’t have, so we adapted that concept to what we have here and the resources we have here and that’s what we’ve rolled out.” Recognition for the project

is a major boost for local rural medical practices, according to Mrs Margrie. “One of the key working areas is recognising and responding to deteriorating patients, so it basically means our project we’ve done in Berri is gold standard in the sense, that we are comparable on an international stage and we are good enough to do it,” she said. “In medical terms we talk about a golden hour, there is a lot of stuff we need to be able to achieve in the golden hour and we are now getting that happening here as opposed to waiting until patients get to Adelaide.” River Doc’s ED clinical director Dr John Penna said the project has raised the bar of emergency service in

the Riverland. “We’ve introduced to a rural hospital, concepts that were only previously put in place in metropolitan hospitals,” he said. “It means that rather than approaching things in a haphazard fashion, in which case it is possible things can get overlooked, we have now got systems in place based on what metropolitan hospitals have done. “We’ve now put those systems in place in a way that can be replicated in other small rural hospitals. “It is ensuring that things are not missed, patients don’t deteriorate without it being recognised and that there are well trained staff using well tested systems that will achieve the best results.”

Solution to improving your television reception ARE you in an area where your television reception drops out unexpectedly? If so, then Grant Jaeschke from Riverland Home Theatre can help. There is no Riverland destination too far for Grant to travel to look at your television set and run tests to see where the fault lies. With over six years of experience, Grant is also prepared to venture into the Mallee to help with reception enquiries. “It’s still fairly common and there’s generally no need to suffer with bad reception,� he said. “Even if you are in a black spot in the Riverland you can get reliable reception through a satellite dish.� Grant can also provide services such as mounting televisions on the wall. “It’s out of the way, out of reach of kids so it can’t topple onto them and where you can’t see any chords,� he said. Grant can also install any communications cabling for telephone outlets. “Not many people realise where to go to get that done in the Riverland, I can put in new telephone outlets,� he said.

THE Mallee community will raise money for one of its most celebrated chefs at today’s Pinnaroo Spudfest and tomorrow night’s Plates for Mates event. Chef Matt Golinski, who has attended the popular Mallee event on the past four occasions, tragically lost his wife and three daughters during a fire at his Sunshine Coast home last year. Not only did Mr Golinski host the Ready, Steady, Mash competitions during the Spudfest but along the way made a number of friends. Now the community is reaching out to help Mr Golinski as he continues to recover

from the event, where he also sustained third degree burns. Pinnaroo Spudfest Committee acting chairperson Ann Venning said the Mallee is a giving community and there is not a more worthwhile cause.

The Mallee is very good at helping people in need.

“The fact Matt comes to Pinnaroo every year to help us raise funds for the Mallee, we’ve decided to go ‘hey mat-

ey, we’re going to do one better, we are going to pay you back’,� she said. “The Mallee is very good at helping people in need and the fact that the Mallee is behind Matt all the way. “He’s made a hell of a lot of friends here, he’s a close friend of myself.� A range of well known chefs including Manu Fieldel and Peter Everett will host this year’s Ready, Steady Mash at the Pinnaroo Institute, in front of Channel 10 cameras. The Ready, Steady Mash will host three shows from 9.30am, 1pm and 6pm today. The sold out black tie dinner catering for 300 people will see people come from far and wide.

Hospital fundraiser FRANK Spano and Jam Train will headline a fundraiser for the Renmark Paringa District Hospital later this month. The event, known as Blast from the Past, will be held at the Renmark Hotel from 6.30pm on May 26. With 1970s band Frank Spano and Jam Train performing, proceeds from the event will go towards the foundation supporting the hospital complex. Health Advisory Committee chair Heather Burton encouraged as many

Locals live below the line for world poverty By CALLUM TRIFONOFF A GROUP of young locals have banded together in an effort to raise awareness for world poverty. The Live Below the Line Riverland SA team, consisting of captain Taranjeet Singh, Patrick Carson, Alysha Herrmann, Kait Kalisch, Harrjeet Arkan and Harpreet Singh, will live off just two dollars per day for five days next week to experience what it is like to live in difficult circumstances. With all proceeds going to The Oaktree Foundation, captain Taranjeet Singh said the campaign is a worthwhile cause. “Australia’s such a lucky

country, we’ve got a lot of the things that we take for granted,� she said. “Some people who live in poverty for example, they're struggling to get food and have all the essential needs that makes it possible for us to be happy and to live.� Ms Singh said the team is hoping to hold a fundraiser in the region at a later date to further spread the word about world poverty. In the past, Ms Singh has been part of The Oaktree Foundation’s Generate, a seven-month program which has young people working together.

10 • Riverland Weekly – Thursday May 3, 2012

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Un-Australian thieves RETURNED service personnel have an unspoken belief that all Australians are their mates. Indeed their service has contributed to the freedom and values that we all enjoy and aspire to and we owe them respect for their contribution to our nation’s values that are held in high regard worldwide. One tenet of the service spirit is the concept of ‘mateship’, so eloquently put by Henry Lawson and I quote: “We learnt the creed at Hungerford, We learnt the creed at Bourke, We learnt it in the good times, And we learnt it through hard work. We learnt it at the harbourside, And by the billabong, No matter what a mate can do, A mate can do no wrong.� Just as important is the tenet that “you do not steal from a mate� but it would appear that value is not held by some in our community. On two occasions in the last month, the Berri RSL subbranch Hall has been the target of those who would put their own greed above the community. They have gutted their ‘mates’, stealing from the very people who would support them in crisis. Not only the RSL but they have eroded the capabilities of the Berri Barmera Legacy Widows Club, the Vietnam Veterans Association and the Riverland Veteran’s Centre to assist the community by stealing and damaging property that contributes to the community assistance measures undertaken by these groups. These groups are all voluntary, there are no funds for paid staff and their capabilities have been eroded

by your greed. Enjoy the grog, spend the meagre cash, there’s not much left and I guess you will not spare a thought for the costs of your actions. To me you are as un-Australian as it gets. To the community, I would ask that you secure your property, be vigilant for illegal/suspicious activity and be prepared to alert the police immediately if you observe it. Community support for an effective police response is critical if you wish to remove this scourge from our midst. Chris Ware, Berri RSL Club president.

A closer look at the financial figures HAVING read Hudson Howell’s 12page report on the ‘feasibility of relocating the Renmark Paringa Visitor Information Centre’, I believe some of the aspects of the financial analysis seem to be oversimplified and ideally could have gone further in providing more than one scenario of estimated costings and savings to enable ratepayers to be more fully informed. First, estimated savings of $225,000 over 10 years are identified as an achievable outcome with once-only establishment costs of $59,690. However, is this figure complete given the reports ‘relocation opportunities’ which lists opportunities “to develop new tourism services including BBQ areas, children’s playground, art and craft display/ sales, toilets, parkland/wetlands etc.�? Whilst these additional possibilities to further develop the Eigh-

Have your say about the issues that affect you. teenth Street site would be in the future, the costs will be borne by the community and preferably need to be taken into consideration now. Secondly, it is unclear if the projected savings of $225,000 is inclusive of paid weekend staff or a continuation of volunteers. However, should the current volunteer component of the present information centre weekend rostering fall short, as alluded to in the report’s ‘key issues’ - or indeed collapse, this would require one, if not two (for possible security purposes) paid staff to cover weekend rosters. This arrangement would need to continue until sufficient trained volunteers are able to make up the shortfall. The report mentions that volunteers have estimated their information centre weekend contributions are up to 700 hours per annum at a value of $14,000 based on a wage of $20 per hour. Could it be that additional staffing costs would well exceed this estimate of $14,000 per annum? Hence, I believe is is pertinent to present an additional financial estimate which is inclusive of partial or full weekend salaried staff should this scenario eventuate now or in the longer term. Finally, the report estimates operating cost savings to be $25,800 on the existing riverfront precinct in relation to cleaning, electricity, phone, general maintenance and contractual services but the figures does not seem to include offsetting rental income from Premier Stateliner of approximately $7500 per annum, bringing actual savings back to $18,300. In conclusion, I would urge community members to download a copy of the report through Renmark Paringa Council’s website or seek one from the council offices.

In doing so, ratepayers will be more informed in weighing up the pros and cons of the long-term viability or otherwise of relocating the centre from the riverfront precinct to Eighteenth Street. Kathleen Hazelwood, Renmark.

Education on cats required CATS are all loveable creatures and deserve good homes. I believe it is important to spread awareness about this issue, particularly in rural areas, as homelessness among cats has reached horrific numbers (about half a million cats are homeless alone in South Australia). I believe this is mainly due to the bad habit of giving kittens away for free to anyone who wants them. Then the mostly far too young, unwormed and unsocialised kittens are used as toys for kids and kicked out of the house once the novelty wears off or once the cat comes home pregnant or sick and starts spraying, which inevitably happens if they don’t receive the necessary veterinarian services by the age of six months. Most importantly, of course, is their desexing. Secondly, they need vaccinations. Thirdly, if they are ever allowed to leave the house, they should be microchipped. Our local vet clinic does microchipping for a mere $30, so there really is no excuse. Just imagine if someone finds your cat on the streets and brings her to the council or a vet. If found sick or injured, the cat will be put down and you will never know.

If the cat is healthy, he will end up in the Moorook Animal Shelter and may spend the rest of his life in an overfilled cage. Sadly, when a cat runs away, many people will replace it with another cute, free, giveaway kitten, rather than even giving the shelters a call and rescuing their own family member first. What a shame. Therefore, I believe people should learn and read about cats before they even think of getting one and they should inform themselves about different cat breeds so they can choose the right cat that fits into their family and adds happiness for the next 15 years or so. Romana Vlcek, Berri.

SARC spending THE Loxton Waikerie Council has voted to provide the South Australian River Communities (SARC) with $3000 to assist with preparation of the SARC Murray Darling Basin (MDB) draft plan submission. SARC chairman Gavin McMahon is quoted as saying the group’s MDB submission has been prepared “at considerable cost and time commitment from our group members�. How much money, in total, has been donated/raised for the SARC submission and from whom? Reportedly, the amount may be in excess of $40,000? What amounts were spent on the various components of the SARC submission (such as the actual written submission, wages, travel, etc. and to whom?) Tom Loffler, Waikerie.

Navel season begins

Riverland’s high quality vintage ends three weeks early

RIVERLAND citrus growers are facing another challenging year as the navel orange season begins. Waikerie grower Anthony Fulwood said many growers are remaining positive and assessing each year as it comes. “The way the exchange rate is, we’re not going to become very rich again this year,� Mr Fulwood said. “Citrus will continue to be difficult until the exchange rate changes, that’s probably one of our biggest battles. “The crops are reasonably heavy.� The unpredictable weather and unkind exchange rates make for a long season, according to Mr Fulwood. “You don’t know what the weather’s going to be like all season,� he said. Like many other citrus growers in the region, Mr Fulwood has committed to a future in the industry. “Like most people, you put a lot of time and effort into growing a tree,� he said. “You can’t just put a tree in today and get a crop off it, I’m committed to it for the long term.�

‘Riverlution’ a great success AROUND 160 guests attended a vineyard dinner titled Riverlution at Loxton North last Friday. People from across Australia attended the event, which was organised by the Riverland Alternative Wine Group (RAWG). Amongst the guests was wine writer Max Allen, who will give the region some much welcomed publicity. RAWG chair Ashley Ratcliff said the event made a lasting impression on many of those in attendance. “We had 50 per cent of the people from outside the Riverland, from Melbourne, Coonawarra, Barossa and Adelaide,� he said. “Those people walked away thinking that the wines that come out of this area are a lot better than they probably anticipated.�

Shorter seasons? A

LOCAL winemaker believes this season’s short Riverland vintage may be the way of the future. Running from the end of January to early April, this year’s vintage was one of the shortest ever experienced in the region. Kingston Estate Wines managing director Bill Moularadellis said wineries and growers may have to prepare for shorter seasons in the future. “We didn’t really expect the vintage to be as short as it was,� he said. “This may be the new norm and we’re looking at ways to improve on it next year.� Crushing just under 90,000 tonnes at the winery, Mr Moularadellis said this year’s vintage was some of the best quality he has seen. “It really was one of the best vintages we’ve seen quality wise and we look forward to being able to get these wines into the marketplace because 2011 was much more difficult than we’ve experienced in many, many years,� he said. “It was rather rewarding to be able to bring the vintage in without having to deal with wet weather events. “The Riverland did par-

ticularly well compared to other regions and many other regions were down on forecasts, whereas the Riverland, we were at, or slightly above (average).� In his 47th year as a grower on his property at Barmera, Brian Caddy said this season was one of the better ones. “Generally speaking I think everyone was very happy,� he said. “Crops were slightly down on last year but we had a huge year last year. “The quality this year was very much superior.� Mr Caddy grows the alternative variety known as fiano and he said time will tell as to its success. “I’m confident it will be a good variety in the finish but it’s only young at the moment,� he said. “It’s just had its second pick and we got 12 tonne to the acre off of it.� Loxton North winegrape grower Brett Munchenberg said he also had a positive season.

â–  DEEP IN THOUGHT: Kingston Estate Wines managing director Bill Moularadellis believes short vintages may be the way of the future.

Emu in demand THE popular rise in emu meat has created a demand which could see production for a local farmer double within four years. With the high request for emu meat, Moorook based emu farmer Wayne Piltz said he expects to slaughter more than 750 emus this year and over 1000 in 2013. Currently Mr Piltz said he is three months behind following a closure of an abattoir in Victoria, where he normally sends emus. “All the birds we are going to kill this year have virtually been pre-sold, which is a good thing,” he said. “Providing we get over the hiccups of slaughter problems and getting birds slaughtered, things will be very progressive for us.” Mr Piltz said consumers continue to warm to the flavour of emu meat, with a number of chefs using the unique product. “If things continue and we can get slaughter facilities set-up a lot closer locally, which we are hoping to do, I can envisage that we’ll double production within four years,” he said. “There’s certainly a growing demand for the meat and the oil products are going along extremely well.” Mr Piltz said last year there was a worldwide shortage of emu meat.

Fight against mosquito plague rewarded ■ AWARD: Riverland council environmental health officers (from left) Kate Knight, Rebecca Burton and Katina Nikas were rewarded for their efforts on a mosquito campaign. A CAMPAIGN aimed at battling the invasion of mosquitoes in the Riverland in 2010-11 has become an award winning showcase. The three Riverland councils’ environmental health officers Rebecca Burton (Berri Barmera Council), Kate Knight (Loxton Waikerie Council) and Katina Nikas (Renmark Paringa Council) were recipients of the Environmental Health Australia (SA) award for excellence in community focused environmental health practice at a cer-

emony in March. After a high number of reported arboviruses and one death from Murray Valley Encephalitis in the Riverland during the 2010-11 period, Mrs Nikas said councils started the awareness campaign, with an emphasis on health promotion. “That particular year was a hard year as far as controlling the mosquitoes,” she said “So we developed a television advert and it was great to get that recognition.”

Taking the worry out of your transport needs ■ EMUS: Moorook farmer Wayne Piltz is expecting production of emu meat to double over the next four years as demand continues to rise.

Group pushes ahead with grain facility A MALLEE farmers’ group has been forced to withdraw any financial support for the establishment of a $6 million storage and handling facility at Tailem Bend. Eastern Graingrowers Pty Ltd initially expressed interest in becoming a major stakeholder in the development of the facility but at a meeting in February, the group was unable to make a financial commitment.

The project is being spearheaded by Clandene Pty Ltd and the group is hopeful the 100,000 tonne grain receival facility will be ready for the 2012-13 growing season. Clandene Pty Ltd director and Lameroo farmer Kevin O’Driscoll said the Mallee growers group was unable to commit the substantial funds required to invest in the facility. “At the meeting,

farmers were pretty keen to have some alternative storage facilities but we were unable to generate enough financial input from farmers for them to take a financial interest in the development,” Mr O’Driscoll said. “At this stage Clandene is just going along with maybe one of the grain majors to develop the site. “From my perspective it was something that I half expected, that it was always

a big ask to raise somewhere up to $1.2 million. “They’ve expressed an interest in having a competitive site but were unable to find enough money, so we’ll go on and explore, over the ensuing period, other options.” Currently preparation is being done at the Tailem Bend site with about 20 semi-loads of rubbish carted away last week and surveying being completed.

Drought funding declared over AUSTRALIA is now officially drought free for the first time in over a decade as the final two Exceptional Circumstances declarations came to an end this week. While the drought is over, the Federal Government is providing a Transitional Farm Family Payment to help those in hardship. The funding will occur until June, 2014 and provide up to 12 months of income support for farm families, as well as individualised case management to help families in hardship and improve their long term security. Rural Financial Counselling

Service SA general manager Kay Matthias said many farmers will be assessing their future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are some farmers that will leave the industry now, there is no doubt about it, but for those that are still testing the waters and wondering whether there is a future for them, it (the transitional support) just gives them that little bit longer in terms of helping them put food on the table,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would be encouraging anybody that wants to apply for it to most certainly work with a rural financial counsellor to look at their long term future.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whilst you are continuing to provide Exceptional Circumstances, you could view that also as a band-aid approach and so I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time, because climate variability is a reality, that we do have to learn to do things differently and that means by better farming practices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are certainly seeing more people considering their future and talking quite seriously about getting out and you can see evidence of that in the Riverland wherever you go these days with vacant farms.â&#x20AC;? While the EC funding finished in the Riverland at the end of March, Ms Matthias said

at times it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;divisive in communitiesâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For those farmers that really were eligible for it and through no fault of their own, it certainly was of enormous assistance,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think farms will get bigger and I think they are going to have to get bigger to be able to compete in a global environment as we go forward.â&#x20AC;? At least 11 Rural Financial Counsellors will be in the Riverland next week to take part in training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usually we have it in Adelaide but we think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really good for them to go out to the regions,â&#x20AC;? Ms Matthias said.

â&#x2013;  END: Australia has now been declared drought free but some growers are still feeling the financial pressure.

Challenging times for potato industry THE potato industry is facing a challenging period as it deals with oversupply in a highly competitive market. Mallee based Parilla Premium Potatoes (PPP) has been forced to compete with overseas imports. Parilla Premium Potatoes project manager Ed Longstaffe said while growing conditions for the vegetable have been good, the burden of oversupply

is affecting the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bottom line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an oversupply in the market which is pretty depressing price-wise,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Mallee company also grows onions and carrots, as well as managing livestock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheep are still doing well, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got livestock to fall back on,â&#x20AC;? Mr Longstaffe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all doom and gloom.â&#x20AC;?

Ideal weather conditions have helped the company grow vegetables with top quality and size. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a good, mild normal summer without too much cold, too much hot or too much rain,â&#x20AC;? Mr Longstaffe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The carrots are a reasonably buoyant market.â&#x20AC;? â&#x2013;  SPUDS: The potato market is in oversupply in a competitive market.

Rural Financial Counsellors helping farmers plan for the future AS YOU are reviewing your past season and planning for your next year, it is an ideal time to speak with a Rural Financial Counsellor in your area. Although Exceptional Circumstances declarations for the River Murray Corridor and Murray Mallee have ended, we know that many are still in financial hardship following a number of drought affected years of reduced income with associated debt. Rural Financial Counselling Service SA (RFCSSA) is a free confidential and independent service working to support primary producers, fishermen and small rural businesses who are suffering financial hardship. Rural Financial Counsellors aim to help rural business owners take charge of their business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; rather than the business taking charge of them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and to seek opportunities about thriving into the future, rather than just surviving. A Rural Financial Counsellor can help you with: â&#x20AC;˘ Identifying your future business options â&#x20AC;˘ Profit and loss analysis and helping to determine what may be the best and worst performing aspects of a business, including scenario analysis â&#x20AC;˘ Identifying government assistance that may be available/suitable

â&#x20AC;˘ Preparing for bank reviews, i.e. cash flow budgets and statements of position â&#x20AC;˘ Options for reducing unmanageable debt â&#x20AC;˘ Negotiation with lenders â&#x20AC;˘ Organising repayment plans and creditors â&#x20AC;˘ Preparing for retirement or succession Using the five year business decision planning tool titled Plan to Profit, Rural Financial Counsellors can also help analyse the viability of your business. This tool provides excellent scenario analysis and identifies and explores options to improve profitability.

IN A bid to test new machinery and look at germination and seeding depths, the Agricultural Bureau of South Australia Lowbank and Districts branch will host a seeding project at the corner of Lowbank and Paschke roads in Holder Siding next Wednesday. Through the project, various farm machinery will be tested against one another to see which returns the best results. Agricultural Bureau of South Australia Lowbank and Districts branch project manager Warren May said the seeding project will be held over 60 hectares (1.8 kilometres). â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came up with an idea from our bureau executive to do something with all these new machines that are available and what different farmers have been buying around the area,â&#x20AC;? Mr May said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re conscious of soil

conservation, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve moved from traditional cultivation to minimum till, zero till with knife points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s various brands and models and sizes now that some of the guys in the bureau have got hold of so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just decided if we could get it all together in one paddock, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d run a trial to see how disc-seeders shape up in this country versus the knife point machines.â&#x20AC;? So far, nine machines have come on board and Mr May said the event could have benefits across the broadacre farming area in the Riverland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not just doing a 100 metre run, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing a paddock thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1.8 kilometres long and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to go over all soil types,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those attending will be able to view the machines work under the control of the ag bureau.â&#x20AC;?

Enquiries at an all time high for Riverland Field Days APPLICATIONS for sites are flooding in for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Riverland Field Days to be held in September. Riverland Field Days secretary Tim Grieger said last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event did not have a celebrity attraction as such, but the program will be different this year. He said a star attraction could also help boost stall holders at the Barmera based event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole focus of the Field Days is the promotion and marketing of businesses, goods and services for the region,â&#x20AC;? Mr Grieger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working on a program of activities now that will be there for the public to participate in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking to

Nitrogen Fixing Bacteria in agriculture â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Now a real option Nitrogen fixing bacteria explained NITROGEN fixing bacteria are single celled organisms that are essentially miniature urea factories, turning N2 gas from the atmosphere into plant available amines and ammonium via a specific and unique enzyme they possess called nitrogenase. Although there are many bacteria in the soil that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cycleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; nitrogen from organic material, it is only this small group of specialised nitrogen fixing bacteria that can â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fixâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; atmospheric nitrogen in the soil. Most growers are familiar with legume nitrogen fixing bacteria called Rhizobium and the colonies they form inside nodules, visible white lumps on the roots of legumes. It is well established that specifically selected, high performance strains of these symbiotic legume bacteria can fix between 50 to 200 units of nitrogen per season, depending on soil moisture. To do this job, these specific strains need to be inoculated into the legume seed to ensure their numbers are high enough to colonise each plant and to bring about a significant influence on the total nitrogen production.

Interest in the Field Days is very high, according to Mr Grieger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enquiries for the Field Days have been up on what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had in previous years so the interest is very strong,â&#x20AC;? Mr Grieger said.

N fixing bacteria use plant carbon as a high calorie energy source to fuel the biological reaction that converts N2 gas into plant available N compounds. Whether it be the soil dwelling species or the endophyte N fixing species, the plant is controlling the

On the Farmers embrace ideal conditions Riverland and Mallee

SUMMER rains have given farmers the ideal conditions to sow crops with plenty of moisture in the soil. In fact, Riverland farmers are seeing a turn around time of sowing to germination of just three days. Bull Burraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Andrew Biele said he has been sowing seed for the past two weeks with all of his canola and mustard already in the soil and germinating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole soil profile is now wet and we are sowing barley and within three days itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s germinating and doing well because the ground is so nice and warm,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the subsoil moisture that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got, everything will come up but we are going to need some rain in a month or twoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time and we will certainly need finishing rain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are hoping to get an early start to the season as far as harvest goes and hopefully weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have everything done by Christmas time.â&#x20AC;? While early forecasts predict farmers across the Riverland and Mallee are in for an above average season, Mr Biele said there are many challenges that lie ahead including weeds, rust, mice and rabbits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a good kill, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

still rabbits out there,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once the grasses start to grow and the grasses start to come up, there is going to be plenty of food around for them so their numbers could potentially build quite quickly.â&#x20AC;? Wunkar farmer Ian Cass said he is on the verge of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;optimum seeding timeâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a great rain in March but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really waiting for that half-inch rain now and then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be flat out into seeding,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a great chance of a good season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learnt over the years, you can be optimistic as you like but you can never be sure of a good season.â&#x20AC;? Mr Cass said he believes the biggest challenge is the price of grain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back to prices my father was getting in the 1970s when our cost of production was a fraction of what it is now,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x2013;  READY: Wunkar farmer Ian Cass assesses the soil on his farm ahead of the new season, which is expected to be well above an average year yields wise.

Horse owners beware of virus THE Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) is warning horse owners to take precautions against Hendra virus as the season for the infection approaches. AVA President Dr Barry Smyth said that with Hendra cases on the rise, particularly in the eastern states, anyone working with horses should take caution around any sick horse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our knowledge of how the Hendra virus is spread is still limited and it is difficult to predict what effect the recent wet weather will have,â&#x20AC;? Dr Smyth said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do know that the Hendra virus is present in all flying fox populations and that the virus can shed at particular times with the fluid secretion of the flying fox including from saliva and urine.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x2013;  THUMBS UP: The seven Australian Nuffield Scholars, including the Riverlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dave Reilly (far left), and one Canadian scholar, overlooking one of Mexicoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major water storage dams.

Around the world tour GURRA Downs date palm grower Dave Reilly is travelling the world to learn more about the fruit and its success among many overseas countries. After recently returning from the first stage of his Nuffield Scholar Tour, Mr Reilly will embark on a 10 week stint flying across the world to visit different areas renowned for growing dates. Mr Reilly was one of eight scholars to take part in the global focus tour travelling to the powerhouse agricultural production areas around the world. The trip began with a familiarisation tour around Canberra, where Mr Reilly had the opportunity to speak to Australian delegates for the free trade agreement. From there he visited New Zealand with a focus on dairy, agriculture and water management and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;big push to convert cropping land to dairyâ&#x20AC;?. A stop in the Netherlands enabled Mr Reilly to meet up with other 2012 Nuffield Scholars from across the world, including Loxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very own Robin Schaefer. Farm tours were conducted on arrival in the United Kingdom, while Mr Reilly discussed a farm bill and USA food stamp policies in Washington DC. There was plenty of cropping and grazing to see in Canada and he was in awe of the big horticulture developments, including almonds and tomatoes, in California. The final two stops of the Nuffield Scholars first stage tour took

in Mexico with livestock genetics and wheat breeding projects and then the vast variety of produce in Brazil. Overall, the first stage of the Nuffield Tour included 27 flights over 50 days. Mr Reilly said many techniques and ideas from the trip could potentially be implemented on his own date farm property. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was about trying to improve our own farming capabilities and to do that, this Nuffield Scholarship gave us the ability to travel and see some world renowned farmers and look at their farming models,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To improve our own system here, the Nuffield Scholarship gave us the opportunity to visit other farmers that are doing tremendous jobs and hopefully bring that back here and to integrate it with our own systems and share that further afield.â&#x20AC;? After a short stint home on his date property, Mr Reilly will head off for the personalised stage of the Nuffield Scholar Tour on May 18, which includes visits to well known date growing areas such as Mexico, USA, UK, Spain, Egypt, Kuwait, Oman and India to name a few. His wife Anita and son Jonte will join him for the first three weeks of the 10 week tour. One of the highlights for Mr Reilly will be a presentation he is making on behalf of the Australian date industry to the Californian Date Growers Association.

More growers turn to dried fruit DIVERSITY is what saves peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skin. Those are the words of Dried Tree Fruits Australia chairman Kris Werner. With the dried fruit season just completed, Mr Werner said the consistency of the fruit he produces could be the answer for struggling winegrape or citrus growers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stonefruit is consistent so you can pretty much rely on that as being a bit of a cash spinner even when the other (industries) are down,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As far as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m concerned itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just about the most stable industry thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out there.â&#x20AC;? Mr Werner, who has a stonefruit property in Waikerie, said the dried fruit season was very light on tonnage but he said the returns were solid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was probably the worst year weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had ever but that just reaffirms the fact that we had more growers out there,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything else is up and down but the apricots seem to hold their own.â&#x20AC;?

Apple growers face uphill battle LOWLY returns and a lack of demand for the fruit have contributed to a less than ideal apple season, according to the Apple & Pear Growers Association of South Australia (APGASA). Despite good quality and what has been estimated to be the biggest crop in recent years, Riverland apple growers have returned a less than average season. APGSA chief executive officer Greg Cramond said growers need to find markets for their fruit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big crop, probably the biggest crop weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had in five or six years and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of fruit that needs to be moved,â&#x20AC;? Mr Cramond said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a couple of â&#x2013;  BAD: Some apple growers are being forced to leave fruit on trees good years and all was going due to poor returns and demand. quite well but then towards

the end of last year, prices started to come down, demand started to wane and there was still a lot of carryover fruit from last season that was sitting around waiting for a home.â&#x20AC;? Mr Cramond said not even a mild summer with plenty of rain has helped the current situation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (the weather) certainly helped the quality and certainly helped the number of apples that are being harvested,â&#x20AC;?he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very little sunburnt fruit.â&#x20AC;? Mr Cramond said pear growers were also not returning high prices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a few pears coming out of the Riverland and the prices are barely break even,â&#x20AC;? he said.

No issues with coach as runner QUESTIONS were raised at a Riverland Football League meeting last week over the legality of Riverland Football League coaches acting as runners. At a meeting with umpires co-ordinator Father Steve Ardill, team representatives raised the issue but were told the situation is within the rules. Concerns were raised after Waikerie used a co-coach as a runner in its match against Loxton North in round one, not the first time clubs across the Riverland have used this tactic.

RFL chief executive officer Wendy Kruger said the Magpies were acting fully

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to the umpireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discretion but they can be told not to come back on.

within the rules. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The runners delivering messages was brought up but that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t targeting Waikerie, that was in general,â&#x20AC;?

Mrs Kruger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As long as the coach writes down his name on the team sheet that he was the runner, they can do it.â&#x20AC;? As runners are only allowed to deliver a coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s message and not direct play while on the field, Mrs Kruger said umpires will be keeping a close eye on runnersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; actions in future RFL games. Umpires have the right to send a runner from the field if found to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;coachingâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to the umpireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discretion but they can be told not to come back on,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It depends how bad it was.â&#x20AC;?

By CALLUM TRIFONOFF THIS weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Mud Dust & Music event at the Loveday 4x4 Adventure Park is expected to attract a large crowd. The two-day event at Loveday is always a popular choice and organiser Tony Whateley said a crowd of about 500 is expected, with plenty of tourists in attendance.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the people who are coming to this are diehards who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss an event,â&#x20AC;? Mr Whateley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good action racing.â&#x20AC;? Mr Whateley said the main highlights will include the DP chip jump for cash, a $500 reward, and the Toyota-sponsored carnage award. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guys who realise they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win (in a racing event) will go for the big

jump and if the jump doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go for the carnage award,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mr Whateley said he has big plans for the future of the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Next year, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably going to incorporate the ute muster, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a huge event,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mud Dust & Music will commence at 10am on both Saturday and Sunday.

Canberra man rides through the Riverland for poverty awareness THERE is no doubt Canberra man Matt Napier is feeling the affects of a 2500 kilometre bicycle ride but he is far from complaining. Undertaking a bike ride from Perth to Canberra in order to raise awareness for world poverty, Renmark was a pit stop last week as part of Mr Napierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mammoth 3809 kilometre journey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I chose the route from Perth to Canberra because if you line up all the kids under the age of five who die from starvation each year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough to do a human chain on the side of the road,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different way

Canberra on May 12. Mr Napier, along with wife Wendy, conducted a world poverty awareness program at Renmark Primary School on Friday and spoke with Riverlanders at the Renmark Plaza.

RIVERLAND INDEPENDENTS - ROUND FOUR THE OTHER GAMES

MATCH OF THE ROUND

East Murray v Paringa IT IS first versus third in what should be Paringa’s biggest test so far this season. East Murray has proven it has a team that can match it with the best sides in the competition. However, it remains to be seen as to whether the Tigers can match it with league leader Paringa. The Swans have played strong team football in three consecutive wins in 2012. Coming off the bye will give East Murray fresh legs but Paringa has both match fitness and player depth to counteract that.

Goalkicking machine Dean Hill could be a match breaker. Averaging eight goals per game after three rounds, Hill must be stopped and the Tigers are likely to look to star recruit Chris Rudiger for that job. Jason Berger has also been lively up forward for the TIgers, along with young Brok Schubert. Duane Angel or Mick Miller may be given the nod to cut down the space for East Murray’s active forwards. Nick Carr, Jono Wood and Nathan Schumann have found early season form for the Swans. With no Zac Kirk, the Tigers lack the midfield power to keep up with the likes of Andrew Lloyd and Chris

Gardner. East Murray will desperate to win with Cobdogla looking to snatch third place, however Paringa will be too good once again.

■ East Murray defender Ben Reichstein.

THE OTHER GAMES

Moorook-Kingston v Cobdogla WHAT a difference a week can make in football. After failing to kick a goal against Paringa, Moorook-Kingston regained some respect with a convincing win over Brown’s Well. Cobdogla was just as impressive with the young team continuing its winning form by belting lowly Wunkar. A 10 goal second quarter showed just how potent the Eagles’ forward line can be.

Darrell Tilbrook and Tyson Maynard will need close attention this round, with in-form Brett Smith and potentially Matt Cooper to play those defensive roles. However, Tilbrook may not play due to a sore hamstring. The Eagles will also be without Adam Barnett for up to six weeks, while Rohan Axon will miss this game. With the return of forward Joey Abdulla and inclusion of Ash Boatswain, the Warriors are at full strength. One has to admire Blair Dillon’s attack on the football and he could lead the way for a relatively inexperi-

enced Warrior outfit. Moorook-Kingston coach Cecil Rigney said the team is more settled and playing good football. “Our centres and onballers are starting to combine and win a lot of the ball,” he said. Yet, when the Eagles are running they are hard to catch. “With the side being not just competitive but dominating a couple of quarters, the boys are getting confident,” Cobdogla coach Brad Gillespie said. The Eagles are on a roll and should overcome the Warriors in a game decided by less than two goals.

LLyrup v Ramco

Wunkar v BSR

BOTH Lyrup and Ramco need a win to keep in touch with the top four but only one team can come out victorious in this match. The Roosters were made to look average after quarter time against BSR last round, while Lyrup went down to Paringa but have fresher legs coming into this contest. Ken Karpany is a very important inclusion into this weekend’s team after missing last round. Simon Sumner has been a great recruit for the Lions, while Troy Harrison and defender Dave Grenfell are key players. For Ramco, ruckman Jamie O’Callaghan has been outstanding, while Bryce Matthews and Max Baddack have been getting first hand on the football. Lyrup coach Shane Healy is hoping for a big win. “They’re coming off a 90 point loss so we have got a chance,” he said. There is no doubt that Ramco is vulnerable despite a long list of talent.However, the Roosters should claim a much needed win over Lyrup.

WHEN Blanchetown/Swan Reach was named as a geniuine premiership contender at the beginning of the season, many local football fans remained cautious. The Redbacks improved signficantly last season and many thought it was premature to make flag calls this year. However, after three rounds, BSR has been unstoppable. Boasting the best defence and leaking less than 12 goals in two matches, the Redbacks are a real chance for a finals spot. Again Dale Payne has the football on a string and Scott Young has been a real improver in the ruck. Matt Mattner may miss this round with a knee injury, while Kyle Coleman will also not play. Wunkar has had a less than ideal start to the season despite efforts from the usual suspects in Daniel Evans, Ian Worsfold and recruit Jordan Hentschke. BSR coach Peter Zadow is not getting too ahead of himself though. “On the board, it looks like we’re a bit better but I’m not going to say we’re going to win,” he said. We pick BSR by 100 plus points.

MALLEE FOOTBALL LEAGUE MATCH OF THE ROUND

Karoonda v Murrayville

o only

$37,990 $3 $37 $ 37

KAROONDA’S dominant midfield has been its strength so far this season, led by playing/coach Ben Quinn. The Magpies have made a good start to the year, well ahead of Murrayville, who is yet to register a win. Karoonda’s ruck stocks in Josh Rudiger and Lucas

Neumann are giving the likes of Corey Knight, Brodie Chinner, Shane Harte and Zakk Bullard first use of the football. Up forward the Magpies are also strong with the experienced Luke Hocking kicking goals. Youngsters Daniel Thiele and Nick Zander have also presented well. Does Murrayville have the calibre to stop Karoonda?

curate goalkicker Ricky Hunter, veteran Brad Zerk and brothers Matt and Josh Ridgway if it is to have any chance. While the Hawks are capable of kicking a big score, its defence will struggle to contain BDT. Crows big men Hayden Schilling and Chris Gregory have been crucial in the ruck and versatile around the ground. The quality midfield includes Josh Keller and Josh,

Clint and Lachlan Richardson. The return of Patrick Barrett adds another top class player into the mix. BDT also has an active forward line with Kevin Kock and Shane Binns leading the charge. Lee Slape leads a solid defence and he will be an important player this round. While Lameroo has shown many signs of improvement this season, the ever strong Crows will win this contest by 10 goals.

With a good recruiting drive pre-season, Pinnaroo would be disappointed with its start to the season. The loss of Sunyl Vogt and Alex Keogh through serious injury has further compounded problems. On the other hand, Peake is improving each match with Jason Dikkenberg leading the ruck well and Patrick Casey amongst the best midfielders in the competition.

Lachlan Wilson has proven he is one of the best young players around. The addition of Trent Wingard has also been welcomed. Pinnaroo has had some good contributors with Chad and Ryan Nickolls performing admirably. We are still waiting for the Supa Roos to put together a four quarter effort but Peake should still be too strong at home.

GAME THREE

Peake v Pinnaroo

LMVD46

Nick Noblett has become the pillar in defence and he is likely to get a key match-up, while Michael Worsman is also showing good signs. Recruits Chris Campbell, Nick Rees and Thomas Bailey have shown patches of skill for the Bulldogs. Karoonda is in good form and one feels Murrayville does not have the personnel to stop a Magpie victory at home.

WITH big forward Scott Feltus leading the way, Peake can put up its hand for a top four spot with a win over Pinnaroo. Feltus snared 11 goals last round and is an immediate danger for the Supa Roos. Defender Chris Hughes may get the job on him.

In 2000, a match between Renmark and BarmeraMonash was stopped for a head count by the umpires. It turned out the Rovers had 19 players on the field.

? Did you know..?

RIVERLAND FOOTBALL LEAGUE-ROUND MATCH OF THE ROUND

Barmera-Monash v Berri BARMERA-MONASH lived up to the hype surrounding the talented team in round one but faces a tough task against Berri. The Demons stunned Loxton in the second half thanks to a six goal return from West Adelaide player David Hankin. A number of players debuted for the Demons and they may take some time to settle into the team. On the other hand, the Roos have an impressive forward line incorporating Brody Jennings, Robert Price and Marc Elliott. Berriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defence has speed but lacks height compared to the Roosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; forward structure. Both teams will make some changes for this clash with Barmera-Monash sweating on the fitness of several players. Ryan Burns, Corey Hanna, Murray Middleton and Jack Selfe will all need to prove they are fit, which coach Lyndon Burns said is more than likely. Captain Matt Leyson played in the B grade last round and is likely to have another run in that grade as he attempts to gain match fitness. Tom Oates is expected to be avail-

able in this round. Burns said there is a lot of unknowns about the opposition this early in the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just go out with the same respect for our opponent,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like last week, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to have that aggression and put pressure on the ball carrier.â&#x20AC;? For Berri, Hankin will be replaced by Kirk Harwood and the team remains balanced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last week, we started slowly but finished the game well,â&#x20AC;? Berri coach Allan Brand said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we can play like that for four quarters, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be very confident.â&#x20AC;? Some of the interesting matchups to watch will be Sam Elliott and Adam Beauchamp, Murray Middleton on Michael Voigt and Ryan Langcake on Michael Smart. The first half should be even before the Roosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tall forward line takes advantage in a comfortable win.

RENMARK will be hoping to provide more scoreboard pressure in its clash with Waikerie. The Magpies faded late in their match against Loxton North, while Renmark were trounced by a running Barmera-Monash. Unfortunately Damian Stevens will be missing following a hamstring injury and Tom Eldridge hurt his knee. That could pave the way for under 18 players Matthew Underwood or Daniel Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They look to have a good list,â&#x20AC;? Waikerie co-coach Brenton Kay said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to shut their key forwards down.â&#x20AC;? Rover forwards Steven Pitt and Craig Seekamp will be looking to set the record straight after going goalless last round. Jaryd Rowe and Aaron Camplin return, while Sam Frahn and Kane Pedler are out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a bit of a shell shock, we have a couple of different things to try for this week,â&#x20AC;? Renmark coach Brett Blackwell said. Renmark will show improvement but Waikerie should win.

Loxton v Loxton North 

TWO young teams this weekend contest what has built up to be a remarkable rivalry over the years. Veterans from both teams always say that no matter where each team sits on the ladder, when Loxton and Loxton North play each other, anything could happen. While the Tigers were unimpressive after half time in the first round, Loxton North was equally as poor in the first half against Waikerie. Mark Thiele made a good start to the season in defence but will need more help to stop solid forward Geordie Franks. Loxton North has lost centre half back Josh Voigt to an ankle injury, leaving a big hole in defence. Forward Jamahl Liddle may take advantage of Voigtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss with a bag of goals. Under 18 Nathan Francis is likely to replace Voigt with a key role in the backline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a pretty young, inexperienced side so hopefully our experience will be the key,â&#x20AC;? Loxton North coach Craig Wooldridge said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played a side this

year, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know.â&#x20AC;? Wooldridge will be keeping a close eye on the experience of Raph Liddle, Leigh Kruger and Nick Uren and try to cut their influence on the match. The Tigers will more than likely be without Mitch Fazekas and Lachlan marr. Loxton coach Mick Zerna said Daniel, Justin and Ryan Proud and Jamie Ferguson will all need to have their space restricted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a really big match for us, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a young group,â&#x20AC;? Zerna said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Voigt is a big loss for them but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bring somebody else in.â&#x20AC;? Kruger is likely to line-up on Daniel Proud, while Kale Smith needs to provide rebound like he did last round. Loxton North will notch up a first win after an arm wrestle in the first half.

All of the Riverland and Mallee football news, views and rumours WEST ADELAIDEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S Lachy Jennings will play with Berri until he is required at league level. Berri Coach Allan Brand said the young talent is still on the minds of Bloodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; selectors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this stage, (Jennings) has been told heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be summoned next time thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an injury. So heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a kick with us until then,â&#x20AC;? Brand said. IT appears East Murray forward Ryan Smith will not don the boots for the club this season as originally planned. It is understood he may play

in Adelaide where he is living. BERRI captain Peter Safralidis notched up 100 games on the weekend. Well done Saf! PEAKE recruit Scott Feltus booted 11 goals on the weekend at the age of 41. Not a bad effort. IS it just us or are the Independent Colts getting smaller and smaller? I dare say their confidence may be taking a hit with thrashings of more than 250 points for some teams recently.

RFL B GRADE LED by veteran Grant Dahlitz, Loxton had a determined first up win against a Berri side boasting A grade talent. This week the Tigers face Loxton North, who, with the exception of Steve Inglis, put in an ordinary performance against Waikerie. Loxton should notch up

another win by four goals. In other matches, Renmark will want to put last roundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss behind it but may have its work cut out by Waikerie. Barmera-Monash is again strong this season with Dave Whitbourne providing spark. The Roos should beat Berri without trouble.

FIVE THINGS WE LEARNT THIS ROUND

2

Loxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s B grade has made major improvements after a horror season last year where there was a continued shortage of players.

3

Teams can lift for big matches, as Berri did for Peter Safralidisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 100th game against Loxton.

4

Cobdogla is playing well above expectation, showing that blooding juniors can have major benefit.

CHARLIE’S SPORTS GOSS WITH GRAHAM CHARLTON

Riverland hockey kicks off with closely tipped games

Steph’s double selection ■ RECENTLY we mentioned that two young Berri basketballers, Steph Sarro and Indee Thiele, were in a race against time to overcome injuries so that they could gain selection in the SA Under 16 Girls team to compete in the National Championships in Tamworth from July 1. Well it seems the pair have been able to do enough in the trials to convince selectors to name them in the final squad to make the trip. But as far as Steph is concerned ‘that’s not all’. Steph has also gained a place in the State Schoolgirls Netball team to compete in the National titles in Darwin from August 4. Congratulations to two dedicated and talented young ladies.

Local springs to victory ■ PERHAPS many years of watching greyhounds as the photographer at the Riverland Greyhound track introduced Barmera’s Bett Stawarz to speed of foot. Bett recently won a gold medal in a 100 metre sprint at the Port Pirie Masters Games. She had only been training for six weeks but had done the hard yards working six nights a week and was thrilled to break 18 seconds for the first time with a personal best of 17.31 seconds. Bett also won silver in the 400 metres and another gold in the long jump with a leap of 2.94 metres. “I could have done better in the long jump,” she said “But not wanting to foul, I took off too far back from the board.”

Content Stokes returns ■ THE assistant coach of the Australian senior country men’s hockey team, Brett Stokes, arrived home from a tour of Thailand and Malaysia on Monday morning. Last week we reported on the initial leg of the trip where I now find that before leaving Thailand, the Australian team played against a side selected by the country’s hockey president from players that had competed for countries like Thailand, Bangladesh, Chinese Taipei and Oman at the Asian championships held at the same time as the Australian visit. Australia won impressively against pretty tough opposition 11-2, only to be brought down to earth when they ran into the Malaysian under 21 national squad in a three test series. “These guys are ranked fourth for their age group in the world and were preparing for the Under 21 Asian Championships,” Stokes said. “The hectic schedule had left us with a few injuries but it was an eye opener for our boys about the standard that can be reached as we went down 7-1, 8-2 and 6-1 to a classy side. “Nevertheless, it was a great trip and can only help the players that were involved.”

Sticks out for round one ■ THE LOXTON Hockey Club, with a double A grade premiership behind it in 2011, will be immediately put to the test when it travels to Renmark in the opening round of matches on Saturday. There is a fair bit of ‘nudge, nudge, wink, wink’ going on about the Renmark prospects this year in both mens and womens grades with the appointment of the experienced Brett Stokes to the coaching staff and apparently a more enthusiastic approach to pre-season with big numbers out on the track. The 2012 season starts tomorrow night at Glassey Park with the Berri versus Waikerie A grade men at 7pm and women at 8.30pm. Then back at headquarters on Saturday, the day commences at 9am with under 12s, under 15s at 10am and a Hookin2Hockey session on turf from 11am. The program at Renmark on Saturday gets underway with under 18 men and under 16 women, Renmark and Loxton games at 11.25am, followed by B grade at 2pm and then A men at 5pm and A women at 6.30pm.

Again this season there will be a number of our talented juniors playing in Adelaide but when available, returning to play for their home club. Tara Allister and Sean Burgess from Loxton are two in this category. The Loxton women’s team will also be without Heidi Satchell with injury but there are reports that coach Billie Jo Hammerstein will have a couple of new recruits in her squad.

other recruits. And of course there is the Stokes’ factor and it will be interesting to see how promising youngsters like Aden Shaw and Jordan Caire develop under his influence. The Renmark women’s team that has been Loxton’s greatest threat in recent seasons has Danial Shawyer continuing as coach and while his squad continues to boast some of the competition’s leading players in veterans Dan-

News out of Renmark includes the addition of a goalkeeper with Premier League experience. One of the men’s young stars Aaron Evans is moving to Adelaide but still aims to qualify locally, so the experienced senior playing group that will share the coaching duties still have a lot to work with. News out of Renmark includes the addition of a goalkeeper to the men’s team with Premier League experience in Stephen Cresp and reports of some

ielle Weeks and Toni Casey, there are also a number of juniors emerging through the ranks. Berri’s president Gavin McMahon, who is also the coach with both the club’s men and women teams, is enthusiastic about rebuilding the club’s senior line-ups that not only has Stokes but also an injured Paul Santos missing from the men’s squad.

In the women’s competition for Berri the loss of several regulars including the move of state under 18 player Merinda McMahon to Adelaide. McMahon does welcome newcomers to his women’s squad in Sarah Oldfield and Jane Hustler, while youngsters expected to press for senior selection include Nathan Bradford, Bodie Bayliss and Brady Martin. Ryan Edwards continues as coach at Waikerie for the men’s squad with Shaun Pick will coach the women. Edwards will welcome back key midfielder Brenton Kroehn a few weeks into the season after he had 2011 off. It is also understood that Adelaide based Alex Fulwood and Matthew Morgan will return to play when they are available. He is also hoping state player Lachlan Seabrook will find some time in his busy Premier League season to play a few matches. The women’s team has lost a few leading juniors but has recruited strongly including having a few past players return to the ranks.

Grand finalists show early form in netball ■ THERE has been a lot of talk concerning the unusually high turnover of players in local A1 netball teams this season and a quick glance at the results from last Friday night’s opening round could havesuggested that the two winning teams, 2011 grand finalists Renmark and Loxton, had picked up two prized recruits. That was not the case. Hollie Bullock, who with Marg Lambert Anzac Day Medallist Alysha Proud, starred in Loxton’s hard fought victory against Berri 50-45 and Kerri Turk, who alongside defensive stalwart Jo Haynes was named best as Renmark defeated Barmera 49-36. In 2011, we became used to the pair starring as Hollie Buick and Kerri Griffiths. However, it turns out that the pair have both married in the off-season and their surnames have changed. In Berri’s first outing for the season, Renmark recruit Tegan Moldovan was quick to settle in and young Ellee Eleftheriadis was untroubled in again making the transition from basketball to ensure their side remained competitive despite the loss of many key players from last season’s line-up. Barmera also appeared poised

for an improved season and had two of the players mentioned pre season as potential stars, Jules Morgan and Mackella Armfield, immediately into stride. This Friday night, Loxton North will unveil its new look combination when it visits neighbor Loxton for its first hit out in 2012. In the other game, Barmera and Berri meet with both clubs keen for a confidence boosting victory with line-ups that have little resemblance to last season. In Independent netball last Saturday, last year’s A grade champion Blanchetown/Swan Reach went on its winning way with a 48-33 result against Ramco. Nicole Lindner and Rohie ■ ACTION: (Above) Griffiths stood out for BSR, while Cobdogla and Wunkar in Sharna Linke and Jacqui Wood Independent netball, while were best for Ramco.

■ THERE are reports that consideration is being given to a jackpotting of prize money across the popular Legacy Days at the Loxton and Berri Bowling clubs in 2013. Loxton leads off with its annual fundraiser each year with Berri following on Anzac Day. The 2012 Loxton event certainly slipped under the radar but I understand that it continued to be a huge success, while at Berri a full house saw some teams actually turned away. A record $1780 went to Legacy from the competition which was won by a team whose members were Night Owl bowlers only eighteen months ago and played mainly in third division pennants last season. Barb and Leon Knight and Yvonne and Barry Hollis won

the event with Greg Rieniets, Ken Breakwell, Lucky Seltitzas and Caren Lawrenson the runners-up. Meanwhile, there seems to have been some misunderstanding again over eligibility for the finals of SA Champion of Champions events in Adelaide in 2011-12. Remember in the previous season Moorook’s John White won the singles final of the Zone Four Championship only to discover that the win did not automatically get him into the finals in the city because it was the champions from individual clubs that were able to nominate for the event. During season 2011-12, the opinion that the regulations had been changed by Bowls SA, whereby it was the zone champi-

ons who would automatically be entered into the state finals, was pretty widely circulated. But that is not the case. Renmark RSL’s John Van der Wyst has recently won the zone Champion of Champion Singles Title at Morgan but has missed entry into the finals in Adelaide because it is still individual club champions that are invited to enter. Of course John, like John White before him, could have entered as his club’s champion but when he became aware of the situation the due date for nomination had lapsed. It is believed however that all clubs had been made aware of the regulations via a Bowls SA letter. To clarify the position, I telephoned Riverland Men’s

Bowling secretary Ian Kubank who advised that up until three years ago it had been the zone champions in both singles and pairs that went to Adelaide for the state finals but that had been changed to club level since then. The matter had been a subject of discussion on several occasions at RMBA meetings and Ian stressed that it will continue to be on the table with the aim of clarifying the situation for everybody once and for all at the next Annual General Meeting.

Late news ■ Persistence has paid off for John Van der Wyst as he has convinced Bowls SA to admit him into the Champion of Champions draw.

The number of goals scored by Loxton Unitedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Geordie Franks in local soccer on the weekend.

SPORT

Loxton the dark horse

â&#x2013;  ATTACK: Loxton United playing coach Shane McPherson heads the ball ahead of Renmark Olympic players.

â&#x2013;  ALL OF the pre-season publicity surrounding the 2012 soccer season focused on a three way battle between Barmera United, Renmark Olympic and Berri River Rangers in the A grade menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competition. The fourth team being Loxton United were acknowledged as having picked up some worthwhile recruits like Geordie Franks and Callum Trifonoff from Barmera and with increased player numbers and some emerging juniors, the team is likely to be more

competitive than in recent seasons. Well going on Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s results perhaps Loxton warrants being treated more seriously after obviously putting in a considerable effort both on and off the pitch to advance on the progress they had made in 2011. At the Steve Poutakidis Sports Grounds at Renmark in the weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening round of matches, home side Renmark Olympic had to dig deep to withstand a serious Loxton United challenge

to win 5-4. Franks with three goals was his usual inspiring self for his new club, while Trifonoff was the other scorer and young Spyro Polymiadis immediately looked at home at this level. A feature of the Olympic performance was the successful return of dynamo Lenny Gadaleta. In the other game, Rangers also lived up to its pre-season hype under new coach Steve Atkinson with a comprehensive 2-0 victory over 2010 and 2011

premier Barmera. The Berri side was well served by evergreen Dave Gregoric and Chris Miller, while Barmera, without a number of its stars from last season, had Andrew Sarakinis in outstanding form. Loxton, with Amanda Altschwager back and really firing and joining Sarah Tuhoro in finding the net on a couple of occasions, also made a strong start to the season in Open Girls with an upset 7-2 win over the dominant side from 2011, Olympic.

Riverland and Mallee footballers picked in state squads â&#x2013;  A NUMBER of former Riverland footballers have been selected in various state squads. Of those chosen, Jonathon Beech, who after being recruited from Barmera-Monash and recently notching up his 50th game with West Adelaide, has been named in a initial group of 30 players to prepare for a senior clash with Western Australia at Glenelgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gliderol Stadium on Saturday May 26. There are potentially 20 new state representatives in the squad. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jonoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Beech, 21, has throughout his career been considered a potential AFL Draft candidate and in fact, trained with Port Power in 2009 and 2010 and has been approached by a number of other clubs with North Melbourne in particular showing considerable interest. The SA squad is being led by Woodville West Torrens 2011 premiership coach Michael Godden and also includes 25-year-old former Mallee player Ben Grieger who played in the

Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; triumph last season. At state under 18 level another six West Adelaide players, including three from the Riverland, are in the squad to start training next Monday for the National Championships. Last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Loxton North premiership star Nathan Brown, Mason Middleton (Barmera-Monash) and Berriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kaiden Brand have caught the selectorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eye with a strong start to the 2012 season. Meanwhile, Brown and Middleton, along with Josh Schiller (Waikerie), Chris Bonney (Barmera Monash), Brad Kirk (Loxton) and Mallee pair Dustin Head and Dylan Ribbons, were amongst 11 West Adelaide juniors promoted to the Bloodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; senior team for a Foxtel Cup match against Claremont Tigers at Patterson Stadium in Western Australia last Saturday. West Adelaide senior coach Andy Collins was with the team as he takes steps to expose as many of his clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talented juniors as pos-

sible to senior competition. The Bloodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; camp has been boosted by the addition to their staff of AFL and SANFL experienced Mark Mickan, who started his career at Renmark. The Foxtel Cup is in its second year after being introduced in 2011 to support second tier competitions across Australia. The three top clubs from the SANFL were initially invited into the 16 team knock out competition but having premiership aspirations higher on their agenda declined so that West Adelaide, North Adelaide and South Adelaide grabbed the opportunity. Introducing youngsters to Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contest in WA was certainly a baptism of fire as Claremont is the reigning premier in the WAFL and was the runner-up to Williamstown in the inaugural Foxtel Cup grand final. West Adelaide did start strongly but could not convert from a lot of time in their forward line.

Family duoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s need for speed â&#x2013;  THE father and son combination of Linton and Cameron Price both added to the family trophy cabinet at the recent Adelaide Speedboat Spectacular at North Arm, Port Adelaide. Linton driving â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pure Octaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; took out the 550cc Super Sports class, while 11-year-old Cameron, aboard â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Little Octaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, a J1 class boat, won the Joint J1, J2 and J3 event. Linton is still undecided whether he will soon travel to Dargle, NSW, to defend his Australian 550cc title where he would be aiming at making it three championships in a row. Remember we reported earlier about him being disappointed that his class was separated from the official Australian Championship meeting held in Melton? Linton is also still considering his future in the sport and looking at possi-

â&#x2013;  Linton Price has claimed another speedboat win. bly stepping up to F1 Class where he says that â&#x20AC;&#x153;if you are good enough at that top end of the Tunnel Boat class, you get opportunities to mix it with the big boys, the Unlimiteds and Blown Alcohol boats with speeds probably up to 220 kilometres per hourâ&#x20AC;?. If Linton does eventually make the move, the rest of his family have apparently already expressed interest in moving up in class as well. Cameron reckons he will take over â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pure Octaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, while three year old Liam says he is ready for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Little

Octaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Dad and Mum, Nicole, have problems with that although they feel Cameron is ready for J2 Class. But dealing with young Liamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enthusiasm may be a different matter as regulations say he cannot enter a boat until he reaches nine years of age. Talking of Nicole, she also continues to strive for as much speed as possible as she trains her team of greyhounds with one of the latest additions to her kennels â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Super Looperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; already impressing good judges.

Golf finalists decided after tense finale in minor round â&#x2013;  From Page 36 Waikerie will now meet Berri with the winner to take on Loxton for the title. In division two, Berri ended up on top of the ladder on eight points from Waikerie, Renmark and Loxton on four and Barmera nil. In division three it went Loxton, Berri both six points, Waikerie, Renmark and Barmera, two points. Attention this weekend

transfers to Berri for the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Open. Meanwhile, at Waikerie Lesley Gosse continued the form that saw her take out the B grade womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title at the recent Renmark Open by achieving a hole-in-one at the ninth and winning a stableford competition at her home club last week with 33 points, three clear of Chris Fridd. On Saturday, Wayne

Morris won a division one stableford on 39 points, Alex Nicholson took out division two with 35, while other leading scores belonged to Paul Stringer 37, Derek Greenfield and Terry Harris 36 and Graham Strauss 35. On the previous Wednesday, Stringer won a similar event with 43 points ahead of Hans Vandermyde 40 and Steve Stavrou 39.

Once the Tigers released the pressure valve, the flood gates opened for the second half and the home side went on to a 20-10 (130) to 4-5 ( 29) victory. Chris Bonney and Josh Schiller on the wings were probably the best of the Riverland contingent, while Nathan Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pace was often under notice. On the downside, highly rated Dustin Head appeared to suffer a knee injury just when he is making his way back into the game after a knee reconstruction. Following their trip to WA, Brad Kirk and Josh Schiller returned home to find that together with their West Adelaide club mate in former Renmark junior Drew Gallard, they had been named in the state under 20 squad to be led by Bloodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Reserves coach Ben Watkins. The under 20s will play against the SA under 18s in a SANFL Youth Match as a curtain raiser to the senior interstate clash at Glenelg on May 26.

â&#x2013;  GOOD START: Loxton North premiership player Nathan Brown played for West Adelaide in the Foxtel Cup.

Competitors come from far and wide to take part in field and game event â&#x2013;  DESPITE a number of top shooters being in New Zealand for the Australian championships, competitors came from Broken Hill, Mildura, Adelaide and Melbourne for last weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two day 150 Target GB â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Corsivia Classic Shoot at the Renmarkâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Berri Field and Game Range. Perfect weather but challenging targets greeted competitors and at the end of two days of 75 targets, Rob Shawyer, on his home territory, took High Gun honours with a score of 126/150. AA grade went to Milduraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bill Chapman with 111/150 ahead of another

Renmark shooter Tony Trevorrow (102/150) and a closely contested A grade resulted in a finishing order of Angelo Falco (Adelaide) 109/150, Peter Perry (Adelaide) 105, Loxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ray Pash, 104, and Renmarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Colin Nunn, 101. Other grades were also keenly contested with Steve Markham (Renmark) taking out B grade with 107/150, followed by Ross Howes (Broken Hill) 97, Peter Hicks (Adelaide) 95 and Jason Hefford (Renmark) 94, and Colin Smith (Adelaide) 66/150 winning C grade from Renmarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chuck Hunt 62/150. Sheryl Beer won the la-

dies with 81/150, one shot ahead of fellow Renmark shooter Jo Brown, while two Adelaide visitors Dave Gagnon 98/150, and John Monaghan, 93, headed the Veterans scoring. In the juniors, it took Renmarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kailan Markham to produce his best effort over the last 25 targets to finish on 101/150 and shake off another Renmark entrant Mathew Redway 94, from Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Craig Jones 85, and Milduraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tim Chapman 83. Several local shooters will travel to Keith this weekend for a state team qualifying shoot.
