GOLF CLUB SOLD THE Berri Resort Hotel has purchased the Renmark Golf and Country Club with plans to upgrade accommodation and add much needed improvements to the course. A decision was passed at a Renmark Golf Club general meeting on Tuesday. Renmark Golf Club president Peter Ruston said the sale means the end of an era after the commit-

REPORT BY

C CALLUM TTRIFONOFF tee made it clear to its members six months ago that it would be unable to continue operations in the current format.

“There was sadness because it was the end of us as a group of members owning or being the caretakers of the facility,” he said. “There really was no other option and the members all understood that when we laid out the financial position and we laid out the commitment the Berri Resort Hotel has made. “The good far outweighed any

potential negatives.” Berri Resort Hotel chairman Tim O’Brien said as part of the sale, the golf club will transfer its assets to the hotel and it will take over responsibility for the maintenance and operation of the golf course. Mr O’Brien said the hotel has formulated plans for “improvements to its existing facilities situated on the golf course”.

“Those improvements will include the upgrading of those accommodation rooms not yet upgraded, conversion of a range of existing motel rooms into apartment style accommodation (and) reconstruction of all greens, bunkers and tees together with associated irrigation works,” Mr O’Brien said.

Calls to embrace a VIC move Page 5

EDITORIAL BY

BRAD PERRY

More stop signs needed AFTER a horrific crash at an interseciton in Renmark last week, I fully support calls to review give way signage in the area. I too have seen drivers fail to give way at these types of intersections. It would be an inconvenience to replace some of the give way signs with stop signs but in the end it could save lives. Under law, drivers will be then forced to come to a full stop and look both ways before crossing the intersection. In my time in the Riverland it has become an all too often occurrence (once is more than enough) hearing about cars that have been hit after a driver failed to give way. The impact could be devastating not only for the drivers but for their families. I applaud the work currently being undertaken on intersections and areas along Renmark Avenue. This is a fantastic measure to help ensure that the roads we drive on are as safe as possible. But we must not forget about the intersections not on the main roads, where you cross numerous T-junctions. More stop signs there could save lives.

Grain monopoly still major issue By CALLUM TRIFONOFF THE Select Committee on the Grain Handling Industry visited the Riverland on Tuesday to gain an insight into local growers’ views on the current issues in the industry. Member for Chaffey and a member of the committee Tim Whetstone said despite only a small amount of growers attending the meeting in Loxton, a number of good quality submissions were received. “One of the issues that we’re dealing with now is the ongoing problems with, potentially, the monopoly within the industry with Viterra and now we’re looking at the GrainCorp taking over,” he said. “Will we see some more issues around the monopoly within the industry? “To Viterra’s credit, they have addressed primarily the

Author promotes new children’s book in the Riverland By CALLUM TRIFONOFF ACCOMPLISHED author Kristin Weidenbach received an overwhelming response from locals while promoting her new picture book Tom the Outback Mailman. Based on her 2003 biography of legendary Birdsville Track mail carrier Tom Kruse, Ms Weidenbach said the book, which received positive feedback while on show at the Berri Library & Information Centre and Barmera Public Library, is an example of adapting

adult books to picture books. “I went to the Barmera library and I spoke to the students from Barmera Primary school,” she said. “The kids have been great, that was the year sevens I spoke to (from Barmera Primary School), I talked to the year nines at Glossop High School, that was more about science. “I’ve got a PhD in neurology, I talked about an alternative career in science, going from being a scientist to science writer and now a

general author.” Ms Weidenbach also visited Renmark High School, speaking to year 11s. If there is one thing she loves about visiting regional areas while promoting her books, it is the grateful response she receives from locals. “People don’t have as much access to authors or people as they do in the city,” she said. “Every time I go to the country, people are very grateful that you make the effort just to drive a couple of hours just to come.”

“The hotel has applied for grant funding to assist with early completion of the works. “The timing of the program, other than this year’s work, will be dependant on that application.” Mr O’Brien said the hotel has appointed a head greenkeeper to work at the golf club. “Other works are planned to upgrade the surroundings of the accommodation premises so that the entire facility can be seen as a true resort complex,” he added. “It is proposed that nine holes are reconstructed commencing July, 2012, with the remaining nine holes to be reconstructed next year.”

and Regional Development Australia branches the chance to voice any concerns. “What we’re seeing is with bigger equipment on farms, bigger equipment on roads, trying to deal with economy scale and dealing with cost pressure with production, the councils are feeling the burden with the cost of maintaining roads,” he said. “Also, we’ve found there’s a lot of issues with roadside vegetation, trucks passing on some of these more narrow roads, taking one another’s mirrors out.” Alawoona grower Neville Smith said the committee’s dedication to take grower’s concerns is reassuring. However, Mr Smith said it was disconcerting to have such a lowly number in attendance on the night. “They had a meeting about a year ago and about 120 showed up,” he said.

Crash prompts calls to review intersections By BRAD PERRY A SERIOUS car accident at a Renmark intersection has resulted in calls to remove give way signs and replace them with stop signs on troublesome local roads. The driver, who wishes to remain anonymous, was hit after another driver allegedly failed to give way at the intersection of Tarcoola and Rialto Street. She said the problem must be addressed before another accident occurs. “They need to stop and look,” she said. “People go along those roads so fast that they just don’t look and just keep going. “I’ve heard of accidents that were just like mine that could have ended in death or much more serious injury. “I would be fine with stopping and looking both ways, that’s not going to take much time out of your day at all.” In 2009, Renmark Paringa

Council investigated the reduction of the speed limit on areas of Tarcoola Street from 80 kilometeres per hour to 60 kilometres per hour. However, Renmark Paringa Council Mayor Neil Martinson said it is up to drivers to follow the road rules and he added there are no plans in place to review give way signage. “As part of our ongoing issues, staff check intersection locations all the time for intrusion of tree branches and bushes,” he said. “At the end of the day we’ve got to remember that people need to follow the road rules and give way or stop when the signs are displayed.” The State Government said signage as it currently is on Renmark roads is appropriate. “The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) believes the current signage in the area is adequate,” a spokesperson said.

Tourism plan highlights signage shortage A PLAN outlining the future direction of tourism in the Renmark Paringa district until 2016 highlights a strong need for a signage audit to direct tourists to attractions. The Renmark Paringa Council’s Tourism Action Plan is out for public consultation, along with the Hudson Howells report on the feasibility of relocating the Renmark Paringa Visitor information Centre. A plan was developed following a workshop between elected members and key council staff to discuss the overall tourism strategy for the district. In the plan, council proposes to spend $20,000 on a signage

Forty-five country South Australia students, including a number of Riverlanders, have won scholarships to study health and medicine. The State Government and Country Health SA have awarded $433,500 in rural scholarships for students to progress in disciplines including nursing, allied health, and medicine. Florence Furechi, of Waikerie, was awarded a scholarship in Bachelor of Nursing, as was Loxton’s Melissa Serafin. Loxton’s Susan Hoffman received a scholarship in Masters Clinical Course Work.

This is a

Great Opportunity

Mayor Neil Martinson said the plan gives council further direction. “It just gives a Renmark Paringa focus of what we believe we will be spending money on in relation to tourism,” he said. “Signage has been improved from the Sturt Highway but there needs to be a little bit more done, a bit more tweaking, to make sure that we do get our tourists off the main road and coming into the centre of the town here.” Mr Martinson said a major upgrade to Renmark’s public toilets will also be a boost to facilities for tourists in the town.

Parent wants bullies punished A RIVERLAND parent wants harsher penalties for school bullies following a recent attack on her son. The parent, who does not wished to be named, said continued harassment from a group of children at school has impacted on her son’s childhood. “He’s getting to the point where he doesn’t want to go to school and this was a child that I never had any trouble getting out the door,� she said.

“At the moment he is the hardest to get motivated and do anything because of the constant bullying. “He thinks he’s not good enough in society to achieve what he wants to do and they call him a nerd because he’s got glasses.� While the parent has considered moving her teenage son to a different school, she said he believes running away from the problem is not the answer. “We did think about it (mov-

ing schools) but he’s determined he’s not running from a bully,� she said. School suspensions for bullies do not take into account the constant belittling, according to the parent. “He’s the sort of child that would normally be around you 24/7 but he now hides in his bedroom when he gets home from school,� she said. “It’s not good for a child’s self

esteem at all and I don’t think the bullying is addressed as seriously as it needs to be.� She urged parents to stand up and speak out to help stop bullying in local schools. “It’s standing up to what we think is right with our kids and a lot of parents are too scared to do it because they think the teachers know best,� the parent said. “Don’t be afraid to speak up.�

He’s getting to the point where he doesn’t want to go to school.

Cost efficiency work underway at Loxton Research Centre

THIS WEEK’S announcement that water prices will rise by nine per cent for the 2012-13 financial year is expected to have a far reaching impact on those families doing it tough in the Riverland. While the State Government is offering 600,000 residential customers a one off Water Security Rebate, Berri Barmera Care’s Pastor Tim Klein said rises in both water and electricity bills will hurt the region. “We are finding people that are living on a pretty tight line and the rise in the price of water and power are going to be factors that will push people over the edge,� he said. “We don’t always get the whole story from the people we care for but we do know that people who come to us looking for emergency relief are on a pretty tight line financially with very little give. “When they get an unexpectedly high bill...it puts them behind and it’s very hard to get out of that when the cost of utilities remains high.� State Water Minister Paul Caica said a significant investment has been made to ensure South Australia’s water security for at least the next four decades. “This level of security has come at a cost,� he said. Minister Caica said this year’s price rise is expected to the be the last significant increase. However, Mr Klein is not so sure this will be the case. “We can only hope that it is the last significant price rise, however, the sad reality is we privatised it, we’ve got a desalination plant with high ongoing costs,� he said. Mr Klein said he will be preparing for a rise in welfare demand with household costs continuing to rise. “The people in the towns who are on welfare income or low household income, they will be impacted by it and we anticipate seeing some greater demands on emergency relief,� he said.

COST saving work has begun at the Loxton Research Centre as the State Government prepares for consolidation of PIRSA staff at the facility. In a statement to the Riverland Weekly, Primary Industries and Regions SA deputy chief executive Dr Don Plowman said there is noticeable works occurring at the centre. “A smaller project (at the centre) is the conversion of two small laboratories, which are no longer needed, into offices to allow for consolidation of the PIRSA staff at Loxton and to achieve cost efficiencies in the operations of the centre,� he said. Dr Plowman also said upgrades are taking place at the research centre by Biological Services. “The most significant (project) is the upgrading of greenhouse, growth rooms and potting shed complex by Biological Services,� he said. “These facilities were no longer required by PIRSA for its research

and development program. “This upgrade has been supported out of the Riverland Futures Fund and will provide Biological Services with an expanded capacity to produce its biological agents for control of pests and diseases. “We have a nationally important business providing horticulturists with the latest biological control technologies.� The proposal for a Riverland and Mallee Primary Producers’ Centre to be based at the Loxton Research Centre is currently being discussed, according to Dr Plowman. “Government has been working closely with industry in development of the Business Centre proposal,� he said. “Once the business plan is finalised and the level of industry support is clear, we can then consider options for accommodating this centre.�

THE Loveday Internment Camps will feature in a documentary to be created by award-winning film producer Daniel Tenni’s. Mr Tenni, who has won international awards for his successful 2011 short film Restare Uniti which was based around the Harvey Internment Camp in Western Australia, said he plans to use the documentary as a launching pad for a proposed feature film. Mr Tenni hopes the Loveday Internment Camps play an integral role in the film. “The film is a short story about one man’s experience of that time,� Mr Tenni said. “Between 1940 and 45, about 5000 Australians with Italian heritage were locked up, a lot of them were born here, they were Australian citizens and they were still taken away.

RTA chairman urges community to...

Consider change for VIC By BRAD PERRY RIVERLAND Tourism Association chairman Peter Freeman believes the local community must embrace change and seriously consider relocating the Renmark Paringa Visitor Information Centre (VIC). Currently Renmark Paringa Council is consulting the public on the move and Mr Freeman said it makes sense to utilise space in the council chambers. “It concerns me that a lot of people who are very vocal against moving the Visitor Information Centre are the same people who were bitterly opposed to the Renmark P a r i n g a Council selling the Renmark Caravan Park and look how wrong

they’ve been proven since,” he said. “I just think the Renmark Paringa Council shouldn’t make a decision before they’ve considered alternative possible uses of the visitor information centre. “I accept the fact that it’s in a beautiful position and volunteers love it there and tourists who are on bicycles or cars, not towing caravans, they think it’s in a wonderful position. “But people should take the long term view that if it moves to a prominent position on the Sturt Highway, it then services a wider variety of tourist.” Mr Freeman said it could be exciting to think the current visitor information centre on the Renmark Riverfront could become a tourism drawcard. “You start to think about all the possibilities it could be put to, it could be a five star restaurant, it could be a coffee shop come continental food place, you could have an area out there with outdoor tables,” he said. The PS Industry could re-

main where it is and used as an outdoor dining area when it is not steaming, according to Mr Freeman. “It’s got deck space, it wouldn’t be hard to put tables and chairs out there and make more use of the Industry on the days when it’s not steaming,” he said. “It’s just a unique, magnificent spot on the riverbank, what a shame not to make full use of it.” Long time Renmark tourism operator Fleur Carthew agreed that the council chambers is ready made for a ideally placed visitor information centre. “In Renmark we don’t have to build a new one, we’ve already got the space ready to be used in the council chambers,” she said. “We’ve looked at it from the people who work in the VICs and their opinion is important but I think we need to look at, is there a possibility that we would get more numbers if it was on the main highway and there is research that shows that’s where visitor information centres should be.”

Barge one step closer to becoming a museum PLANS to turn Renmark’s historic Argo Barge into a static museum are one step closer following the successful installation of a liner over the hull. A hard plastic skin was installed on the hull of the vessel about two months ago to stop water leaks and Argo Barge Committee chair Neil Martinson said the process has been successful to date. He said the committee will now move forward with plans to install a viewing platform and access for tourists to board the vessel. “The location will remain where it is behind the PS Industry and when we get organised to provide a viewing platform, we’ll have access to the Argo Barge through the rear of the tourist office,” he said. “People will have the opportunity to have a look at the

PS Industry and then go through and have a look at the barge as well. “We are just having a look at how that access will be provided and that will be getting into the next financial year.” Mr Martinson said historical information will also be stored on the barge. “The idea is we are getting close to a viewing platform within the Argo Barge and now that we’ve stopped water getting into it, the committee members are going to start putting some memorabilia within the Barge itself, which is weather proof,” he said. “That will be a static display where people can actually go onto the Barge, have a look on the viewing platform.” Funding for the viewing platform will come from a

current spot on the Renmark riverfront. “The VIC has still got to be resolved one way or the other but...consideration will have to be given to Argo Barge access, as well as the PS Industry,” he said.

Loxton Waikerie Council may investigate purchasing rail land THE LOXTON Waikerie Council is likely to investigate the possibility of purchasing the former Loxton rail land with the State Government refusing to donate it to the community. With plans to transform the land, known as Mill Corner, into a vibrant tourism stop, council is currently assessing market value of the property that is currently zoned for bulky goods. Council chief executive officer Peter Ackland and Mayor Leon Stasinowsky met with Infrastructure Minister Patrick Conlon earlier this month to discuss the possibility of the Loxton land being gifted to council. “The Minister understood the desire we were looking to use the land for but his position was that through the policies they have to follow, the land is to be sold and to be sold at whatever the market value is at the time,” Mr Ackland said. “Council has other projects its been talking to the community about

over a long period of time as well. “In the event that council’s required to pay some kind value of land, and that is the minister’s position, the council will need to see and look how it can raise those funds. “Whether that means we have to take some from existing budgeted items or proposed budgeted items in the new budget and what that does to those items, that’s obviously a decision council will have to make in the end.” If a private interest was to purchase the land, Mr Ackland said council will need to consider the likely cost to ensure stormwater runoff from adjoining roads does not flood the rail land. “We are also looking at what the cost of keeping the water off of the land would be,” he said. “If the land was purchased by a private land holder then we would have to keep the water off of that.”

Funding helps avocado business grow By CALLUM TRIFONOFF A LOCAL avocado packing plant expects its business to grow considerably after receiving a grant via the Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund. Ramco business CF Fechner & Co received $100,700 from the State Government to modernise and expand to meet a rise in domestic avocado competition. CF Fechner & Co director Colin Fechner said the funding will provide an injection of financial support towards extending the packing shed and help compete against tight market competition. “It’s going towards making the whole packing set up more efficient so I’m getting better quality fruit to the consumers,” Mr Fechner said. “If I hadn’t have got the funding, it would have taken two or three years to do what I

needed to do.” Mr Fechner expects to have the extensions to his packing shed completed within the next three months. Further staff will also be employed with three new casual workers in the first year and another two casuals by 2015. Mr Fechner is an active industry participant and has grown avocados since 1976, with the business currently packing avocados for 18 other Riverland growers, “We’ll be able to expand our shedding and loading areas, add a new cool room and extend the existing cool room to allow separation of fruit and improved quality control measures,” he said. “We aim to to increase interstate share by throughput of avocados from 95,000 trays in 2011-12 to 135,000 ■ GROW: Ramco avocado packing plant owner Colin Fechner has received $100,70 in Riverland Sustainable Futures Funding fo his business.

Clinical educators take training skills to the world By CALLUM TRIFONOFF TWO local clinical educators were given the opportunity to attend the seventh Annual International Conference on Rapid Response Systems and Medical Emergency Teams in Sydney recently. In front of about 500 delegates from around the world, Flinders University Riverland Clinical Simulation Centre representatives Leanne Rogers and Debbie Stone presented their poster ‘Rural Nurses Get Education on the Deteriorating Patient – STAT!’ “We were very well represented which means we are absolutely up-to-date with what is happening in emergency situations and being able to respond to the deteriorating patient,” Ms Rogers said. “Ground level nurses are saying that they are very scared when there are minimally staffed hospitals and they have minimal experience. “They’re very scared of not knowing what to do when back-up can be at least 10, 15 minutes away to get any further help. “By re-enacting emergency simulated scenarios, it gives them confidence.” Ms Rogers said the ideas discussed at the conference have been integrated into teaching at the Flinders University Riverland Clinical Simulation Centre at Renmark.

■ A large audience attended Loxton’s History Week event on Tuesday night. AROUND 180 people attended Loxton’s history sure ain’t boring event at the Loxton Bowling Club on Tuesday. Organisers were expecting no more than 100 people to attend the History Week event but were left overwhelmed at the response. Even convenor David Kimber said people really embraced the evening and the local history. “There were four good speakers, they kept it interesting,” Mr Kimber said. Robert Fielke, Tony Auld, Howard Hendrick and Denis Hann spoke for 20 minutes each about the history of Loxton in a range of topics. Mr Kimber said there are plans to hold another event similar to Tuesday’s presentation in the future. “Loxton is pretty unique,” he said. “I believe there’s such a sense of community and I think that’s the reason why so many people come together.”

Photos: BRAD PERRY A RIVERLAND family is hoping to turn 25 acres of property between Berri and Loxton into a not-for-profit zoological wildlife park, not only attracting tourists but also uniting the community. For years Stephen Barton and his family have been adopting and caring for a range of animals, some which may not still be alive without his help. One of the many animals to call Destiny Farm Wildlife Park home is Bill, a 1500 kilogram Asian water buffalo. As Bill sits comfortably in his own little patch, Stephen explains that he rescued the big horned buffalo which was to be put down after the closure of a facility in Murray Bridge. “They were going to put him down because no-one would take him on,” Stephen said. “To put him down would be a waste. “He is just one of the most placid things out, he is just gorgeous.” Stephen hopes that one day with the help of the community, Bill the buffalo will be one of the main attractions at a zoological wildlife park. Currently as Destiny Farm Wildlife Park chief executive officer Stephen cares for a range of animals with various backgrounds including a number of species from Bredl’s Wildlife Park in Renmark, which

BRAD PERRY closed last year. Already there is an impressive collection of animals on his rescue farm including snakes, emus, deer, kangaroos, lizards, goannas, crocodiles and horses, to name a few. However, if plans proceed for the wildlife park, the Riverland will have its very own collection of unique animals. “Once we get our zoological licence we will attempt to get giraffes, lions and elephants and more interesting animals for different reasons,” Stephen said. Working with disadvantaged people will be one of the focuses of the wildlife park, according to Stephen. “The things that we can do for youth of all ages and all disabilities is beyond anybody’s expectations,” he said. “We are not out to make millions of dollars, we are out to get people and families back together where a father and son can nail a fence together or do something along those lines, where we are building a community. “It will be a sanctuary for families to get out and do, rather than sit at home.” Destiny Farm Wildlife Park

research and development officer Michelle Harding said there are a number of steps to be completed before the full dream is realised. “The next step is to get all of the official red tape done so we can actually redevelop what we already have and then grow,” she said. “If we want it to be sustainable it has to be accessible for community and there has to be incentive there, so it has to be about what community want to engage in. “I like to think of it as a way of connecting animals, humans and nature.” Michelle said the wildlife park will need help from local businesses from finance to law to business plan development to help get the proposed not-forprofit park up and running. “We are looking to fill the gaps in the skills we don’t have as well as creating that broader community connection and then we’ll actually look at what grants we can go for,” Michelle said. As part of the development, new enclosures will be built for animals. With a passion for working with youth, Michelle said she believes there is so much potential for the park to combine conservation with animal care and a focus on human development. “When Bredl’s shut down I was pretty devastated and

The importance of a Christian Pastoral Support Workers IN 2007, the Federal Government launched the National School Chaplaincy Programme in 2700 schools. In 2010, the programme doubled to 5400 schools and the 2012-14 budget provided funding for another 1000 schools. The NSCP guidelines state that “this voluntary program assisted schools and their communities to support the spiritual wellbeing of students”. “This may have included support and guidance about ethics, values, relationships, spirituality and religious issues, the provision of pastoral care and enhanced engagement with the broader community.” Our schooling profoundly influences all of us for life and God has divinely provided an opportunity for every church to be a part of his plan to touch every life in Australia with his love. Ninety seven per cent of Schools have elected to keep with the Christian chaplaincy program and not the new student welfare programme, which is from the same funding. Ninety eight per cent of principals say that chaplain-

cy is making a major contribution to school morale; it is proactive, unique, effective and important. If a secular government and 98 per cent of schools highly value the chaplaincy programme (despite recent media reports), then why isn’t the church, God’s people, excited about the opportunities he has given for us to change the spiritual, relational, moral and ethical health of this nation? It is simply that we have not heard and do not know what God is arranging for us to enter into. In South Australia a school chaplain is called a Christian Pastoral Support Worker (CPSW). These people, on a weekly basis, deal with behaviour management issues such as anger, bullying, harassment, peer relationships, loneliness, family relationships, self-esteem and purpose, grief and loss, community involvement, social inclusion, spirituality and ‘big picture’ issues of life, mental health, depression, alcohol and drug abuse, selfharm and suicide. They are people on the

front line of ministry and spiritual attack. They have more than a job; they have a God given calling and a national mandate to enhance the health of our children and youth. They face the same pressures and battles that ministers, pastors and missionaries face. But they face all this outside of the protective walls of the church. Do you know a CPSW? Have you heard their stories of seeing young people, families and schools being transformed by Christ’s love? Do you know a young person whose life has changed direction and now sees, believes and lives a life with hope and promise? On Saturday night we all have the opportunity to hear these testimonies and meet our Riverland CPSWs. Come and hear what God is doing in your community and how you can be a part of this miracle of love. Please see ‘Worship Night’ advertisement for more details.

Berri Lions Club pyjama drive ONCE again the Berri Lions Club is holding its annual Children’s Pyjama Drive. The club is collecting new pyjamas to give to needy children in the Riverland and keep them warm this winter. Last year 274 pairs were collected, so the aim is to reach 300 this year. Lions Club members will be in Pyjamas in the Riverland Plaza every Saturday and Thursday morning until June 2, where you can drop off your donations. Or you can drop your pyjama donations into Debbie at Harvey World Travel in the Plaza at any other time during

this period. For a bit more fun, think about having a pyjama party at home with your friends and get everyone to bring a pair of new children’s PJ’s which you can drop off to the Berri Lions team during May. The Salvos will work with other Riverland community groups to distribute the pyjamas in our region. ■ COLLECT: Debbie Tanner dressed in her pyjamas during last year’s Lions Club drive.

Health and wellbeing in Loxton LOCALS are encouraged to attend a health and wellbeing information evening at Loxton High School next month. Three Riverlanders, who have experienced breast cancer or worked in the mental health field, will be guest speakers at the information evening which is being run to raise the awareness of local health and wellbeing. Loxton High School governing council chairperson Jenni Trewren said anyone from the Riverland

is invited to attend. “Obviously mental health issues and breast cancer issues affect the whole community,” Mrs Trewren said. “It’s a good way to try and engage the parent community with the school and try and give them information that will be helpful with their children and issues that they might be facing with their families.” The health and wellbeing information evening will be held on June 6 from 7pm.

On Sunday, Riverland pet owners took part in a nationwide fundraiser titled The Million Paws Walk in Berri. With a turnout of 100 people and 80 dogs, the event raised approximately $1200 for the South Australian RSPCA. Co-ordinator of the local event Dr Jenni Trewren said the weather was fantastic on the day. “The fundraiser gives Riverland people the opportunity to get out and about with their pets,” she said.

Large attendance expected for Mammoth Monash Market A VARIETY of different stallholders and new entertainment will be the drawcard to one of the biggest ever Mammoth Monash Market events on Sunday. The market, which is Monash Primary School’s major fundraiser, is expected to have over 70 stalls this year. That figure is up on last year, according to Monash Primary School principal Brenton Chapman, who said the build up to

the marker is going well. “We get a lot of people from all over the place come, a lot of repeat bookings, people who come from different parts of the state every year,” Mr Chapman said. “There will be some new entertainment and the Riverland 4WD Club will be here setting up a display on the oval as well.” Mr Chapman expects a strong turnout and hopes for good weather, similar

to last year’s event. “Last year was sensational because of the weather, so a lot of it is dependant on the weather,” he said. Mr Chapman said the market means so much to the school and to the Monash community. “It’s a really good opportunity for the community to be involved in the school in a different way,” he said. “It brings everyone together.”

Time for some tough decisions for South Australia’s future THE State’s peak retail automotive body the Motor Trade Association has called on the State Government to undertake an urgent independent investigation into the number of public servants in SA as part of the 2012/13 State Budget. “It is becoming increasingly concerning to the MTA that the State Government does not appear to have a handle on one of its biggest expenditure’s and that is salaries,” MTA Chief Executive Officer John Chapman said. Mr Chapman said the Auditor-General should be immediately asked to investigate and report to Parliament on: ■ the number of public servants; ■ the rules surrounding public service salaries and benefits; ■ any breaches in the application of the rules; and ■ the costs and outcomes of past

programs to reduce public sector numbers. “The review should also include specifically the use of allowances to top up salaries, and an examination of trends in, and any breaches of rules about, use of contractors,” Mr Chapman said. Public sector numbers in 2002 were 66,933 and in the period to 2011 have blown out by 27 percent to 84,882, according to the MTA’s research. “Could anyone make the case that the public sector is delivering 27 percent more services today than it did in 2002?” he said. And this was over a period when the government announced several employee reduction programs and spent considerable sums on TVSPs to accompany those programs. “So as fast as they were mak-

ing public servants redundant they were hiring more,” Mr Chapman said. “Unless the public sector is subjected to a major review and reduction, South Australia will become more uncompetitive for business, and it is business which is the productive generator of wealth.” In a comprehensive pre-budget submission to the Treasurer, the MTA raises concerns about: ■ The move towards debt funding and the risk to the AAA credit rating; ■ The constant budget over expenditure for the past six years; ■ The need for ongoing wage restraint in the public sector; ■ The Government’s ability to meet its early stated savings targets of $1.5 billion; ■ South Australia being the highest taxing state in the nation;

■ The need for comprehensive tax reform including land and payroll tax relief; ■ The need to eliminate or modify vehicle stamp duty arrangements. “In South Australia, car buyers are often paying stamp duty on an imaginery cost,” Mr Chapman said. The South Australian Government bases stamp duty on the manufacturers recommended retail price (mrrp) not the actual contract price as occurs in other jurisdictions. “With many sales involving dealer and manufacturer discounts which reduce the contract price, car buyers are often paying hundreds of dollars stamp duty more than they should be. “It is a rip off to motorists and is nothing more than a thin air tax.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Aged at risk MY MOTHER is 96 and a resident in Bonney Lodge. She was once a cheerful, entertaining volunteer in her community. In 1987 she received an Australia Day Citizen of the Year Award for her community service in Barmera. She is also a Life Member of the Country Women’s Association. She has received excellent care in Bonney Lodge and has been quite comfortable there. I am alarmed at the news of the cuts in shifts of carers and nurses and deeply concerned for my mother’s wellbeing and that of the other residents. Nurses and carers, already under pressure, are also at risk. Their health and wellbeing, duty of care and job satisfaction are seriously compromised by the reduced care time for each resident. Good nurses and carers (who actually love working with older people) are precious people and residents’ families really appreciate the love and commitment residents

receive from the staff at the Barmera Residential Care facilities. But putting them under increased pressure at work is not conducive to their good mental health or physical wellbeing and will only be reflected in increased sick leave. What’s the practical effect of less time per resident? Well that means less showers per week, poorer skin care, and more skin and urinary tract infections; residents waiting longer for attention and being incontinent, or falling out of bed when they try to do things for themselves because the duty carer is attending to someone else. Shifting costs from carers’ wages to carers’ sick leave or more visits from already overworked doctors is false economising. There are so many people struggling financially. Pensioners and primary producers, transport operators and traders, now residential care workers will join the growing number of working poor. Parliamentarians, clearly not prepared to share the pain, have accepted a pay rise it would seem at

Have your say about the issues that affect you. the expense of carers of our vulnerable aged. What politician would like their parent to be so vulnerable? Jeanette Staehr, Barmera.

Still waiting on PATS refund I ASK State Health Minister John Hill what is an acceptable timeframe to expect a refund after a claim is lodged for the Patient Assistance Transport Scheme (PATS)? Mr Hill you make a lot of promises, such as health repayments. It appears to me your are all talk, no action. I am a pensioner and our pensions are getting less and less with what we have to pay out for medical treatment. On January 25 this year, I had two appointments at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. I went by private car because I had an appointment at 10am and the second at 2.15pm.

Our local health bus goes to Adelaide daily but because of the timing of my appointments, I could not use the facility because of the timing. Several days after that trip I filled out my PATS form which I had signed by my local doctor in Barmera, as well as my doctor in Adelaide. I think I have been very patient waiting this long for you to return my money that I spent to go to Adelaide for treatment. My application for the PATS scheme was at the Berri Hospital the following week of my trip to Adelaide. So from January 30, 2012, until today, a lack of a PATS refund in over four months is not good service. Mr Hill, if I had an account with one of your government departments and waited that long to make a payment, I would be charged interest on the amount owing. On another topic, why are our local hospitals continually being cut back in staffing? There seems to be no shortage of money to be spent on hospitals in Adelaide.

Do you want to close down all of country South Australia so we all move to Adelaide? Less car parking than before at the new Berri Hospital complex as well as less beds to the serve the whole Riverland and Mallee area? Why? Max Scholz, Barmera.

Rec centre consultation IT IS good to hear that there will be consultation with the users of the Barmera Recreation Centre and the community, regarding its future. I have been using the facility (gym) for 22 years and was shocked when the manager did tell me that the centre would be closing on June 30. I think there are a lot of issues that need to be worked out and the Berri Barmera Council would need to be very supportive of whom ever may take the Recreation Centre on. Bett Stawarz, Barmera.

Boost your retirement funds through salary sacrifice By AMP Financial Planner Danny Kearney AN EFFECTIVE ‘salary sacrifice’ strategy now could be the key to getting more from your super annuation in the future.

What is salary sacrifice? Salary – a fixed regular payment made by an employer to an employee. Sacrifice – an act of giving up something that one values for the sake of something that may be over greater importance. Putting together these two dictionary definitions may help clarify what ‘salary sacrifice’ is – giving up salary (something of value) for the sake of something important (in this case, super contributions and your future retirement income). What the dictionary doesn’t tell us is how this works in practice and why salary sacrificing to super may be beneficial depending on your personal circumstances. Most employees receive super guarantee contributions of at least nine per cent of their salary. Many also top-up their super using available money at the end of the financial year. A third option, which can be an easy, tax-effective way of topping up your super, is to salary sacrifice into super. This simply involves agreeing with your employer for some of your pre-tax salary to be paid directly into your super fund, before income tax is deducted. The sacrifice comes from not having that amount paid to you as in-your-pocket salary.

There are two very important reasons why salary sacrifice can be an effective way to save for retirement.

Tax Effective You don’t pay income tax on amounts you salary sacrifice to super. Instead your super contributions are usually taxed at 15 per cent, which can be much less than your marginal tax rate. In addition, if you are a higher income earner you may pay a lower rate of income tax if you salary sacrifice and your remaining salary may fall into a lower income tax bracket. Let’s say your earn $85,000 a year. Your marginal tax rate is 38.5 per cent and your total tax bill is $20,675. If you salary sacrifice $5000 into super, your salary is now $80,000, your income tax has reduced to $18,750 and your marginal tax rate if 31.5 per cent. The $5000 is contributed straight to your super fund, where it is taxed at just 15 per cent. So overall you’ve gone from paying $20,675 in tax to $19,500, a saving of $1,175.

Grow savings more quickly As well as helping your savings grow by having more to invest, salary sacrificing to super can mean higher investment returns, once you take tax into account. This is because the maximum tax on investment earnings from super is 15 per cent. The same investment earnings outside super are taxed at your mar-

ginal tax rate, up to 46.5 per cent (including Medicare Levy). On the assumptions stated below, after 20 years of salary sacrificing $5000 each year, beginning with nothing, your super could grow by almost $98,000. Taking your $5000 as salary sacrifice each year and then investing it outside super could result in accumulated savings of $53,000. This assumes: both investments earn a return of 7.7 per cent per annum after fees and before tax of 15 per cent results take into account the effects of inflation at three per cent per annum. Just remember that superannuation is a long-term investment. By salary sacrificing into super you will not be able to access it until you satisfy a condition of release such as reaching preservation age and declaring retirement. This example is for illustration purposes only and does not represent actual returns. A change to one of more of the variables and assumptions will produce different results. Your individual circumstances have not been taken into consideration.

We’ve seen how the end result of a tax-effective salary sacrifice strategy can mean more retirement savings. This strategy combined with the benefits of compounding your returns in superannuation can mean higher retirement savings, and more flexibility with your retirement plans, for example, an earlier retirement or a higher or longer-lasting retirement income. So, even a small salary sacrifice each year while you’re working can have a very important outcome when it comes time to retire.

We recommend you speak to your financial adviser to see if this strategy may suit you.

INTRODUCING THE RIVERLAND COMPLEX

The Riverland Complex - A unique piece of the region A FTER an extensive clean-up operation, The Riverland Complex, located off the Old Sturt Highway in Berri, is ready for business. Owners Peter Hoffmann, Tony Moro and Wayne Ormond are proud of the efforts of everyone involved in the process to open the facility to the public. “We have been given great support by the Berri Barmera Council, various members of Regional Development Australia and the Department of Primary Industries and Regions SA,� Mr Hoffmann said. “There is a long way to go to complete our vision and that is where the public is now needed to bring their ideas and plans to us to help create something special.� To date, Regional Transport Training Services, R.G.I. Security Services, a local fruit packer and even a local artist expanding her dream, have come on board to utilise the vast space at the complex. “These are the opportunities that we are interested in supporting,� Mr Hoffmann added. “Yes, we are looking for major tenants but with 45,000 square metres of undercover area and approximately five acres of hardstand, there is room for everyone. “With the support of Riverland Rentafence, it makes it easy to section smaller areas of yard space off if required by anyone looking for offsite storage, even setting up sectioned secured sites inside of the buildings if required.� The owners of The Riverland Complex have been asked many questions about the site’s set-up. Here are some of the questions that have been asked by the community, answered by Peter Hoffmann. Q: Can I store my caravan, boat, trailer or even a car at the complex? A: Yes, there is a choice of

Q: Am I able to park my truck, semi-trailer on the site?

A: Yes, there is a large area that was set up for truck parking by the previous owners. Q: What services are available? A: There is no shortage of services. The complex has three electrical substations, a 100 millimetre gas main, ample water and 150,000 litres of diesel storage onsite.

management plan in place which can be added to, if needed, for specific purposes.

It is hard to explain the options on offer with such a diverse site, so everyone is invited to bring their ideas to Peter Hoffmann (0428 865 641), Regional Development Australia’s Mark Bell (0439 825 400) or Lance Degenhardt (0409 922 011) to see if they can help your dream come true.

â–  OPEN FOR BUSINESS: The Riverland Complex is inviting interested businesses to operate from the site, while (below) there is ample space available for a number of services.

Q: There was a maintenance workshop on the site. What is happening with that? A: We are hoping that with the amount of interest coming from truck drivers and others wanting to leave their vehicles onsite that we may be able to attract a mechanic to the facility. Q: Is there cool room space available? A: Yes, we have some operational cool rooms onsite and one small freezer. We also have a large amount of what you would call temperature controlled rooms as they are made from concrete and would make for great wine storage or whatever needs to be kept at an even temperature without great fluctuations. Q: I only need a small office space, is this available? A: There are several office areas on the site which would be ideal for someone who no longer wants to work from home or to run a small business from, with larger conference rooms also onsite, which would be available if necessary. Q: What about pest control? A: The site already has a pest

■ WELCOME: One of the complex owners Peter Hoffmann demonstrates the large areas ready for businesses to utilise.

There is a long way to go to complete our vision and that is where the public is now needed.

Transport training service utilises Riverland complex EXPERIENCED operators Regional Transport Training Services (RTTS) will call The Riverland Complex home. Formerly utilising the facility, RTTS will use the complex as a training hub and as an area to store its vehicles. Regional Transport Training Services’ Brian Barnett said the facility fits the business objectives well. “The training we will do over there is forklift training,” Brian said. “We do all the components, there’s room for us to do the practical side of it as well. “There is also an area where we can put our trucks.” Along with the ample space at the complex, Brian said RTTS is excited about the prospect of clients being provided with the opportunity to perform safe and secure training at the complex. “It’s fantastic because we’re able to utilise a facility that meets the standards of SafeWork SA’s point of view,” he added. Brian said the purchase of The Riverland Complex will be beneficial for the region. “There’s numerous other country areas that have done similar things and they’ve got similar things in place and it has turned out really well,” he said. “It’s great for businesses to do networking as well. “I’d encourage businesses to jump onboard and support it.”

RIVERLAND VETERINARY CLINIC

New state-of-the-art facilities for veterinary clinic T

HE RIVERLAND is home to one of South Australia’s most advanced veterinary practices offering state-ofthe-art services and 24 hour emergency care. A recently completed extension to Berri based Riverland Veterinary Clinic has advanced the facilities to some of the best in the state. Located on Kay Avenue, the veterinary clinic has been operating for over 30 years but major additions to the business in recent months now means it has embarked on a new era of pet care. Riverland Veterinary Clinic owner and veterinary surgeon Doctor John Hammond said growing demand for services at the Berri facility has been part of the reason behind its expansion. “We were just too small in our existing building and it was just too cramped and now it’s a very special hospital facility,” he said. “It’s a brilliant facility for the Riverland and it’s one of the best hospitals in the state.” The existing building will remain the “face of the business” with the reception area, retail sales and a majority of the consulting still conducted at the site. However, the brand new building connected to the existing site now offers a wide range of services to treat a large range of animals. With a number of brand new major surgery rooms, pathology, orthopedics and radiology facilities, the options of care provided for pets is above anything offered in the Riverland. Riverland Veterinary Clinic manager Steve Clewer describes the new rooms as “like a human hospital” with everything from being able to perform blood tests right through to full surgical services. The practice can treat just about any type

of animal as well, both large and small. “I’ve seen everything from a small native bat through to eagles and raptors and alpacas,” Mr Clewer said. “We do see quite a lot of wildlife in here, so now we’re better equipped to isolate those animals.” Animals can now easily be separated whilst in care at the Riverland Vertinary Clinic, according to Mr Clewer. “There’s a brand new isolation ward, so given that the region has serious issues with the parvovirus, the new hospital offers dedicated isolation for those animals,” he said. “I think it’s more pet friendly with the isolation as we have a dedicated cat ward, dedicated dog ward and it’s just better segregation for those animals.” A number of other services can now be provided thanks to the new facility. “Our clients can look forward to us getting back into those services like grooming and boarding,” Mr Clewer said. “There is a brand new nurses cleaning station. “We have the dog run facilities, so we do board some of our clients’ pets especially if they are having to go to hospital or they have to go away for whatever reason. “It’s more around pets that need medications or ongoing treatments, so they generally come to us because we provide all those services.” Dr Hammond and Mr Clewer said the six vets and 20 plus employees at the Berri clinic are enjoying working from one of the state’s best vet practice facilities. “When our clients are looking for best care, best medicine practices, we are no different to a standard hospital, so we have to meet hospital standards,” Mr Clewer said. “The team here are quite excited

Building on three decades of Riverland pet care

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a brilliant facility for the Riverland and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the best hospitals in the state.

THE Riverland Veterinary Clinic in Berri was established over three decades ago and has continued to build a reputation as the best in the business. For 28 years, Dr John Hammond has been the principal veterinarian for the business and he said the region has changed over the years. However, he said the service at the Riverland Veterainary Clinic has continued to remain strong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our general level of professionalism is very high,â&#x20AC;? Dr Hammond said. He said his staff are trained to specialise in several areas including cat medicine and bird life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If anybody brings in wildlife it gets looked after,â&#x20AC;? Dr Hammond said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s euthanasia but other times itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredible care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An echidna came in the other day and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know as much about echidnas so I rang Australia Zoo on the Gold Coast and spoke to them and got some good advice.â&#x20AC;? Practice manager Steve Clewer said one of the big issues in veterinary practice over the years has been price. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the core issues is, as much as we try and best manage our charges and fees, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at the mercy of our suppliers, wholesalers and manufacturers,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think people realise there is no subsidy for vet, so vet practices across the board tend to bear the brunt of all that and all we can do is just manage those costs back.â&#x20AC;? The Riverland Veterinary Practice also has branches in Loxton, Waikerie and Renmark, as well as Berri.

â&#x2013;  FACILITIES: Riverland Veterinary Clinicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dr John Hammond and head nurse Kim Bambrick examine an x-ray of a goanna, while (below) vet nurse Kalsey Fear provides top care for a dog in treatment.

Dr Hammond said. mal â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a desperate situation, like if an animal nd gets hit by a car at night, they can ring up and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extraordinary care. ecâ&#x20AC;&#x153;Our pain management of patients is second to none.â&#x20AC;?

RIVERLAND Veterinary Clinicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new facility in Berri has attracted vets from outside of the region to perform training at the site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve opened a new hospital, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also allowed other vets to come here and complete their registration or do some of their own training,â&#x20AC;? Mr Clewer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had another local vet here spending some

fear their beloved animal companion could potentially encounter a snake during the hot Riverland summers. While Dr Hammond hopes animals stay away from snakes, he said the hospital is equipped to handle any type of bite with around up to 100 cases of snake bites each year. In fact, he believes the Riverland Veteri-

time with us and students from the Roseworthy University Campus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fantastic facility and if it means some vet nurses or some vets can get some training along the way, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we aim for as well.â&#x20AC;?

Snake bite specialists MANY local pet owners

nary Clinic is one of the only hospitals (including human) in South Australia to stock the expensive black snake antivenom to treat king brown snake bites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Snake bite care is something we are especially good at,â&#x20AC;? Dr Hammond said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have respirators, so our specially trained staff can maintain breathing for paralysed animals.â&#x20AC;?

Difficult procedure successfully performed on Nibbles the goat FOR Nibbles the goat, a visit to the Riverland Veterinary Clinic on Tuesday was a life saver. The goat had problems with a horn and Dr Hammond said the procedure went very well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a nasty, painful procedure and Nibbles wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t completely anesthetized, he was deeply sedated and then had local anaesthetic, so the pain management was actually very good,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mr Clewer said treating Nibbles, which belongs to

a long standing client of the clinic, is an example of the work that takes place each day at the busy practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some time ago, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only about 18 months old but he had his horns removed,â&#x20AC;? Mr Clewer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of them started to regrow and curl round into the top of his skull, so that was a fairly serious procedure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Within half an hour of the procedure Nibbles was heading off home a lot better off.â&#x20AC;?

rage too, for any telltale signs. Antifreeze is attractive to pets because it tastes sweet but most brands are very poisonous and may be fatal. If your pet ingests even a small amount of antifreeze, contact your veterinarian immediately. Pet-safe antifreeze is now available, so consider buying it for your car in the future. Use caution when you start your car in the cold winter months. If animals are left outside, they may climb under the car hood for protection from the cold. Before you climb into your car, open the hood for a quick look around. If your dog stays outside in cold weather for more than potty breaks, he will need a warm, dry place away from the cold and wet. Provide him with a dog house raised up off the ground at least a few inches and equipped with a door flap to keep out drafts. Also, make sure the dog house always has dry bedding. Please remember, though, that dogs are social animals and you are their family â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they want to be with you, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave them out in the cold too long!

WHEN the season changes and the cold weather starts to kick in, pets will certainly feel the difference in temperature. For a start, think about the amount of exercise your pet gets in the winter months. If your pet is less active, he or she may need less food. But, if your dog plays out in the cold a lot, she may be burning more calories and may need more food to produce more body heat. The same is true if your cat spends a lot of time out in his cattery in the cold. So, watch your petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weight, and consult your veterinarian if you have questions. Check the condition of your petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coat. Mats sometimes appear in winter and interfere with the coatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to keep your pet warm. Make sure that water is available both indoors and outdoors. If you constantly experience freezing mornings, use plastic instead of metal bowls and buckets. Your petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tongue may stick to metal and he could injure himself trying to pull away if the temperature drops dramatically. Be on the lookout for antifreeze, which often leaks from cars into parking lots and puddles. Check the floor of your ga-

CARL and Tammy Haby made it back-to-back wins in the Richard Bennett Memorial Enduro at Parilla last weekend but not without dramas with their Pro Buggyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motor now requiring a rebuild before they tackle the Sea Lake Mallee Rally next month. Twenty eight cars made it to the starting line for the race and Haby was under pressure early as he struggled

to keep up with impressive Jack Rhodes and Craig Mattingly Jimco. However, gearbox troubles to the Rhodesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; vehicle saw it withdraw after four laps so that the damage could be corrected in time for the Finke Desert Race in June. Apart from the Rhodes, others to succumb to the challenging course included Wally Francombe , father and son James and Matt Copeland, Rob Cowie, and Luke and Vicki Erceg, who looked

assured of second place but ran out of petrol with 10 kilometres to go. In the end, Trevor Copeland and Annie Galliford shrugged off problems in the Prologue, that saw them start second row from the rear of the field in the main event, to storm home and grab second outright in their Jimco, Andrew and Shannon finished third in their Prolite and Ian Fish and Brenton Clarke fourth.

situations where that change has been made but it is being returned to 16 again.â&#x20AC;? Here in the Riverland, Richard said that he would like to see more clubs finding a way to compete at top level but generally as far as the future of the sport was concerned, he felt that some new approaches were required. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let me use Twenty20 cricket as an example,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course the old traditional game continues in the form of Test matches but this shorter version of the sport has been introduced and has attracted not only a new generation of players but a new group of followers as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bowls needs to look at similar innovations without upsetting the established competitions we have played over the years.â&#x20AC;?

WHEN I spoke to Waikerieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Richard Law recently, I found that since he commenced in his position as a Community Development Officer with Bowls Australia in December last year, he has called on 94 of the 113 bowling clubs from Broken Hill to Ceduna in his allocated territory and had travelled over 24,000 kilometres in the process. Richard has found a good, positive response from those that he has visited but said â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lot are looking for help, they are after suggestions to improve their club and to increase the number of people playing the gameâ&#x20AC;?. He went on to say that at a Regional Conference of Development Officers in Tasmania, he ran into an ex-

ample of what could be done â&#x20AC;&#x153;if people were prepared to break the mouldâ&#x20AC;?. The situation surrounded a traditional womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s midweek competition, where for a number of reasons, including employment, a lot of ladies were unable to participate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Saturday pennant competition is now up and running in the area after a surprising number of ladies put their hands up to play at that time,â&#x20AC;? Richard said. With some discussion going on in the Riverland regarding the size of the teams for menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pennants, I asked Richard whether he had noticed any such trends in other parts of the state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of associations have reduced numbers from 16 to 12,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I have also found

RIVERLAND INDEPENDENTS - ROUND SIX THE OTHER GAMES

MATCH OF THE ROUND

Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Well v Cobdogla IT is time to look at Cobdogla as a serious finals contender. Before the 2012 season kicked off, many wrote off the Eagles as a top four team. With three wins on the board and sitting in fourth position after beating East Murray on the weekend, Cobdogla has the belief to play finals football this season. On the other side of the coin, Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Well has really struggled to play four quarters of football. However, in a major boost for the club and the Independent competition, the Bombers have secured the services of Loxton North premiership player Geordie Franks. Can the renowned goalkicker help kickstart the Bombersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; season? Franks is likely to run through the midfield, alongside Jock McNeil and Matthew Hampel. For Cobdogla, the aggression at

the football in the centre of the ground has been a huge positive with Tyson Maynard, Luke Patterson and Josh Wiseman in good form. The Bombers have failed to gain enough from their big men and despite knee complaints, Brian Hampel is due for a big game. Ash Smith has been lively up forward, while Bryce Victor and Andrew Schultz have been solid in defence. The Eagles backline has been more than impressive with Danny Kassulke, Graeme Dyer and Luke Wegener making up one of the most in-form defensive combinations in the competition. Darrell Tilbrook is very dangerous for the Eagles and Pat Flavel may get the role on him. Deane Mitchell will test his fitness before taking the field this week, while Rohan Axon is still on the sidelines and Dylan Clarke will also be tested. Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Well coach Lance Degenhardt said he needs more from his charges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re confident of a win every week but if we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t got the players

to cover all positions, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always going to struggle,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first quarter was excellent (against Paringa) but we lost track of the play after that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very pleased with the commitment of the players, especially the young players, they tackled hard and opened the game up.â&#x20AC;? Degenhardt said the inclusion of Franks is a bonus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge recruit, in my opinion, the best recruit the Independents has ever made,â&#x20AC;? he said. Cobdogla coach Brad Gillespie said a close eye will be kept on Franks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If he plays in the centre, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a couple of guys to run with him that are more his size,â&#x20AC;? he said. Gillespie said he continues to see improvement each week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve (the players) certainly surprised me a couple of times, with the things theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been able to do,â&#x20AC;? he said. Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Well has plenty of tall options and with the inclusion of Franks, will notch up its first win in a close contest at home.

THE OTHER GAMES

Lyrup v Wunkar LYRUP will be looking to break a four game losing streak against bottom placed Wunkar this round. The undermanned Bulldogs have been competitive so far but are

yet to register a win. Veteran Kenny Karpany has been a stand-out contributor this season, while Tom Smith has been in almost career best form, running through the midfield and defence. For Wunkar, Daniel Evans, Jordan Hentschke and Ian Worsfold have all tried hard.

Lyrup interim coach Sam Lloyd said it is not going to be an easy contest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It should be a pretty hard battle this week but we are definitely confident of getting a win back,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Lions deserve a victory and after a close first half, should break away for a five goal win.

MoorookR Kingston v BSR

East Murray v Ramco

IT appears to be very hard to score against Blanchetown/Swan Reach. The Redbacks boast the best defence in the competition and one feels Moorook-Kingston may find it hard to kick goals this round. The Warriors are likely to be without Todd Griffin and Brett Chandler, while Jarred Munn is under an injury cloud. Alex Rapisarda was a late withdrawal last round and may return this week. For BSR, Michael Zadow has injured his knee and Ryan Schiller and Matt Mattner are still on the sidelines. Both teams have got strong midfields with Kenny Wright and Russell Boatswain against Dale Payne and Troy Cowland. Warriors coach Cecil Rigney hopes to compete with BSR. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to really strengthen our backline,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have got run in our legs and are capable of being a nuisance.â&#x20AC;? BSR coach Peter Zadow said the team is quietly confident of a win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This week, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll keep our structure and play going that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got,â&#x20AC;? he said. BSR should record a fifth victory by more than 15 goals.

AFTER a shock loss to Cobdogla last round, East Murray will be looking to bounce back against Ramco. The Roosters, however, have got some winning momentum. Jamie Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Callaghan has given his midfield first use of the football. For East Murray, Chris Rudiger would be an early favourite for the Duthie Medal. The Tigers have major injury concerns with up to six players out including Rodney Tonkin and David Andriske and coach Darren Zadow said he is struggling to get 18 players on the field. Ramco coach Andrew Bevan said his team is starting to gel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played well on Saturday, I thought we played our best game for the season,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were a lot more confident in getting the ball.â&#x20AC;? With East Murrayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major injury concerns, Ramco should win easily.

With Hayden Schilling in the ruck, Ty McKenna has been able to push forward and add another target alongside Shane Binns. If Scott Feltus returns for Peake, Lee Slape is likely to match him up at full back. Not much gets past Chris Gregory at centre half back, so the Saints may struggle to

get it through him. Last round Peake was missing Pat Casey, Garth Bigg and Feltus and it will be hoping they return as soon as possible. Rick Berling, Sam Patterson, Chad Freak, Bennett Pickering and Gareth Diprose have all tried hard for the Saints. The unbeaten BDT is just too strong all over the ground and Peake will be chasing tails all day.

? Did you know..?

RIVERLAND FOOTBALL LEAGUE - ROUND FIVE

Barmera-Monash v Loxton North LOXTON North has the most to lose in this clash with Barmera-Monash. Last year’s premier has managed just one win so far this season and could drop to bottom of the ladder if Loxton records another upset win. The loss of leading goalkicker Geordie Franks has certainly left a hole in the Panther attack but defender Anton Cook was given an opportunity up forward last round and performed well. The Roos are just about unstoppable at the moment with Dillon Millard showing why he was the 2011 Whillas Medal winner. The return of a fit Matt Leyson to defence has also been another handy inclusion. Robert Price is a big blow for the Roos, out with a hamstring injury, while Brody Jennings may return. Loxton North is likely to field a relatively unchanged team which lost to Berri last round with Dan Proud and Scott Golding possible selections. Proud is still 50/50 at this stage. There will be some interesting match-ups with Sam Elliott and Josh Nelson likely to run with each other, while Ryan Proud and Jack Selfe are

both smart players. While Cook played up forward last round, it is likely he will man Tyler Baldock in the Roos’ forward line. Michael Smart has been in supreme form and Jamie Ferguson or Andrew Baker may get that match-up. Loxton North coach Craig Wooldridge said he expects the team to lift this round. “I think we can be competitive, we’ve got nothing to lose going in against the undefeated side,” he said. “It’s not so much the forwards we have to look out for, it’s the delivery into the forward line. The defenders can only defend for so long.” Barmera-Monash coach Lyndon Burns said last round’s win against Waikerie was a superb effort. “Last week was pretty tough, no one could get away from each other,” he said. “Loxton North are the reigning premiers, we’ll pay them a lot of respect. They’ve got handy midfield and running players.” The Panthers will be hungry for another win but the Roos are playing some of the best football seen in the competition for a long time. The Roos should win by six goals.

On THE mark

Berri v Renmark

MATCH OF THE ROUND

ALREADY bolstered by the return of lively forward David Hankin, word is Berri’s new recruit Aaron Gepp, from Hamilton in the Western Border League, will play this round. The ruckman will certainly have an impact and will add height to the team. Berri is flying at the moment with the likes of Daniel Wilson, Lachlan Jennings, Andrew Hume and Ryan Langcake featuring amongst the best players. Ryan Porter has been a great recruit and will receive plenty of attention from Renmark. The Rovers lost to bottom team Loxton last round with the usual suspects of Adam Bryant, Trevort Thorpe and Matt Camplin best. For Berri, Sam Hirschi remains on the sidelines along with Daniel Haines, while for Renmark Matt Martinson will miss this match with injury. Renmark coach Brett Blackwell said the team needs to adapt to Berri’s style of play. “We have to adjust to their oval and style of footy,” he said. Berri to win by 10 goals.

Loxton v Waikerie 

BUOYED by an upset victory over Renmark last round, Loxton will be hoping to continue its improvement against Waikerie. The Magpies were gallant against BarmeraMonash, falling just short and handing second spot to Berri. Michael Kirk returned from injury last round and made an immediate impact for the Tigers. Raph Liddle has been prominent across the ground, as has Nick Uren. Waikerie has been best served by Steven Braun and young Joseph Haines. Braun and Uren are likely to run side-by-side, while the contest in the ruck between Aaron Nettelbeck and Craig Fisher will be fascinating. Nettelbeck can be a dangerous player across the ground. Young Kale Smith or Raph Liddle may be forced to match-up on Ben Venning, with the latter likely to have the upper hand in that contest. While injury has plagued the Magpies in recent weeks, the team’s mix of

youth, experience, talls and running players is ideal. Loxton coach Mick Zerna said he expects a competitive effort. “On Saturday, we showed a lot more improvement,” he said. “We kind of didn’t expect the win but each week, we’ve kept improving in different areas.” The Tigers showed last week that their defence, with the likes of Mark Thiele, Jesse Smith, Raph Liddle and Kirk, can match it with talls such as Renmark’s Steven Pitt and Craig Seekamp. “Our movement of the ball from the backline was very good,” Zerna said. “The back six were great against Renmark’s big guys.” Waikerie co-coach Brenton Kay said the team will not underestimate Loxton, especially after its first win. “We’re both young teams so it should be a good contest,” he said. Kay said more attacking options are needed. “We need to improve the forward line structure

WORD is that West Adelaide’s Chris Bonney will return to the Barmera-Monash line-up this round in what will be another challenge for Loxton North to overcome. THE Glossop Llamas Open boy’s football team made a great start to 2012 thumping Mannum by 166 points. Among the best were Knight, Woolston, Langcake, Buchecker and Stemberger. BERRI star Darren Marner has a few magic tricks up his sleeve, as seen on YouTube. Check this

out: http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=SP6BzZALnRQ PANTHER defender Anton Cook moved forward last week but it is understood that was only a one week arrangement, much to his disappointment we hear. THIS weekend BarmeraMonash and Loxton North will play for the inaugural Corey Siemers Medal. EAST Murray star Chris Rudiger was part of a Facebook prank last week, where it was stated that he had broken his leg.

CHARLIE’S SPORTS GOSS WITH GRAHAM CHARLTON

Powerlifting records tumble ■ SIX national and 24 state records were broken at last Saturday’s SA Drug Free Powerlifting championships held at the Vitality Health Club, Berri. Riverland lifters were amongst the record breakers with former Australian representative Rose Gow breaking one national and four state records, Sheryl Rapson with four national and four state, Fran Marlor with three and Andrew Norris four state records. Amongst the visiting competitors Chris and Damien Powell both set four new SA records and Dave Thomas set one national and one state. The next competition is the National Titles at Bendigo on Sunday July 15, with all four of the successful local lifters from last Saturday’s event aiming to compete on that occasion.

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

Renmark hosts state champs

THE Riverland Junior Motorcycle Club will host round two of the State Motocross Championship series this weekend at its complex at Calperum Hill, Renmark. Round one was held in Ceduna. Racing starts at 8.30am each day with junior events on Saturday and senior events on Sunday. Admission for spectators is five dollars with riders and anyone under 16 able to enter free of charge. Over 200 riders from across SA and Victoria will compete at the event, which will feature the appearance of American based Australian international ace Jake Moss. Several local riders amongst a contingent of around 40 are given a chance of podium finishes in the tough competition including Josh Spanos in Prolite and Open classes, Trent Shaw in Open, Tyler Lange and Daniel Henry in 250cc juniors, Jack Staunton in 65cc and Cody Rollbusch in 150cc juniors. In the seniors, Nick Gray, in the Over 35s and Steve Shaw, in the Over 45s, are expected to be prominent.

Superdogs lose again ■ THE second big defeat in the last two outings, this time against Portland at Lobethal last Sunday, has the Riverland AFL Superdogs Masters team expecting some back to the basics training at their Wednesday night sessions from 6.30pm at the Lyrup oval. Portland 13-8 (86) defeated Superdogs 3-3 (21). The first quarter was relatively even but thereafter the Riverland side struggled against the impressive flanks to corridor style of its opponent and if it had not been for the resolute defence of Peter Aston, magic of Ken Karpany, clean skills of Sam Ingerson and poise of Darren Tieste, the margin could have been much greater. Shaun Harris battled gamely in ruck, while Nick Kossatch’s performance was one of chocolates to boiled lollies as he perhaps agonised over how he was going to climb back onto the bandwagon of his beloved Port Power. The Superdogs will be keen to get back on the winning list at Lyrup against Pooraka, 1pm on Sunday, June 3.

Local athletes claim gold ■ OUR Lady Of The River’s David Amaechi brought home two gold medals from the SAPSASA State Athletics Championships held at Santos Stadium, Adelaide, recently. David won a 100 metre sprint event and then combined with Daniel Schmidt (Waikerie Lutheran), Isaac Woolston (Monash Primary) and Antonois Vrastaminos (OLOR) to take out a 10-year-old boys relay. Taneesha Venables of St Josephs Renmark, also won gold in the shot put. Riverland, represented by 60 athletes from 20

schools, finished fourth behind Lower South East, Barker and Gawler in the competition and in all won 11 individual and three relay medals. Silver went to Loxton Lutheran’s Alek Kudra in the 800 metres event, St Alberts Loxton’s Carlee Nitschke in shot put, Ramco’s Cooper Mackareth in high jump, Loxton’s Chloe Warrick in discus and Loxton North’s Courtney Tschirpig in high jump and Amy Stephens in 800 metres. A 10-year-old girls relay team involving Felicity Evans (Renmark),

Victoria Moularadellis (OLOR) and Lauren Reichelt and Portia Size (Loxton) also won silver. Bronze medals were won by the 12-year old boys relay team of Tyler Flood (Loxton), Austin Zangari (St Josephs, Renmark), Antonio Zahos (Monash) and Taso Bartolas (Berri) and Courtney Tschirpig for long jump, Kailon Voigt (Monash) for shot put and Lachlan Hunter (Berri) in the long jump. Berri Primary School’s Richard Coote coached the team with his assistants being Liz Pendle and Beth Hueppauff.

■ BATTLE: Barmera Gold’s Ian van der Biezen attacks the ball in B grade action against Renmark Olympic on the weekend. THERE were two terrific contests in the women’s division of Riverland Soccer at Barmera’s Bruce Oval on Sunday with Renmark and Loxton playing out a high scoring 4-4 draw and Berri just defeating Barmera 3-2. For Renmark, Elif Sen and Madi Strachan were in great form, while Loxton was well served by Libby Tuhoro, Haylee Symens and with three goals, Amanda Altschwager. In the other game, versatile youngster Marnie Stewart starred for Berri and Ellen Ryan-Cotton played well for Barmera. The senior men’s matches went as predicted to tearaway ladder leader Berri River Rangers (Tyson Schrapel, Chris

Miller, three goals) 5-2 against Barmera United (Luke Ireland, Kevin Barber) and Renmark Olympic (Matt Lewan, Yianni Sialis) 4-2 over Loxton United (Danny Fielke, Geordie Franks). The under 16 competition also produced an exciting contest when Barmera (Tom Brooke, James Wallace) defeated Berri (Blake Saunders, Paul Zahos) 5-4, while in under 14s Berri and Renmark drew 1-1 with the best players in the game including Connor Bakaj, Adam Drogemuller and Lucas Eleftheriadis. This weekend Berri River Rangers hosts Loxton United and Barmera Dev Estate plays Renmark Olympic.

■ TOMORROW night’s A grade hockey matches will be between Loxton and Renmark, with the women playing at 7pm and the men at 8.30pm. Surely two titanic tussles loom. In the opening round of matches, these traditional women’s rivals tied one all and until Loxton was forced to forfeit last weekend due to an unusual unavailability of players, both teams have gone on their winning way and, if anything, upped the ante. Renmark defeated Waikerie 5-2 last Friday night with evergreen Danielle Weeks scoring four goals and players like Juliett Mallinson, Sally Giles, Bec Shawyer, Lisa Pilgrim and Toni Casey displaying a depth in talent. But when you are talking of premiership winning talent, Loxton boasts BillieJo Hammerstein, Tracey Townsend, Eloise Hampel, Trish Gillard, Haylee Symens and, just returning after knee surgery, key performer Sara Jenzen. Reigning premier Loxton has started the men’s season like a rocket but as good as players like Karl Hennig, Tim Cass, Zac Bartsch, Ty Othams and company are, the team’s performance is always going to be subject to the availability from Adelaide commitments of Sean Burgess and Steven Trezise.

The pair starred with five goals each in Loxton’s 13-2 defeat of Berri last Saturday. Renmark, on the other hand, has come together quickly in season 2012 with new playing coach Brett Stokes taking on the role of general on the field and Callum Benda, Aden Shaw, Danial Shawyer, Jordan Caire and a number of promising juniors all making consistent contributions. Saturday’s matches are at Waikerie where the home side will take on Berri in the A grade women’s game at 2pm and in the men’s at 3.30pm. Despite both of its senior sides going down in the last round, Waikerie should reenter the winner’s circle in both of these games with form players like Kristen Pick, Zoe Liebich and Carlye Waye in the women’s grade and Rowan Hope, Mark and Brenton Kroehn, Shaun Pick and Jason Redemski in the men’s competition. Berri, however, is seeing some positive signs for the rebuilding club. In the men’s team, juniors including Bodie Bayliss, Dylan Couzner, Brady Martin and Nathan Bradford are settling in nicely alongside Jason Bowers, Tony Halupka, Heath Pillen and Ashley Roberts. The women are being well represented by the likes of Jen Kiel, Sarah Oldfield and Emma Goold.

Plenty of competition in golf finals ■ RIVERLAND Men’s Pennant Golf finals will be held at Loxton on Sunday with Loxton to play Waikerie in division one, undefeated Berri up against Renmark in division two and Loxton meeting Berri in division three. In last weekend’s semi-finals, Waikerie led early against Berri in top division but had to withstand a fight back before winning a tight contest 3-2, Renmark defeated Waikerie in division two and Berri overcame Waikerie in division three. At club level over the past week, Malcolm Chid-

low on five up won a division one par competition on Saturday at Waikerie with division two going to Nathan Cronin at six up. Earlier on Wednesday, Wes Bald took out a stableford on 41 points from Geoff Bald, 40, and on Thursday a women’s stableford went to Sue Byrnes with 32 points. At Barmera, David Hastwell won a Saturday stableford with 38 points followed by Sacha Pietrolaj, 37, and John Kniter, 36. On Sunday a stableford went to Jim McKendrick, 40 points ahead of Mick Cenko, 37, and Steve Stavrou 35.

Centre court ■ THERE is a game to look f o r wa r d to in tomorrow night’s round of A1 netball, Berri versus Renmark. A lot has been made of these two sides having vastly different line-ups in 2012 to those of last season but that does not appear to have diminished the standing of the two clubs in this competition. Renmark, deservedly, is the measuring stick and last week brushed aside a challenge from Loxton comfortably, 55-36. The winning performance was even described by coach Ann Noack as “a surprise” in view of the number of players absent from the 2011 team for one reason or another. I do not know about that? When you have coached successfully at a number of levels for as long as Ann has, I reckon that your resume would mention experience in working for an advantage both on and off the court. Renmark’s ability to cope with a change of personnel may have more than a bit to do with the depth of talent the club has nurtured in recent years. In four matches through A1 to B2 grades on Saturday against Loxton, Renmark won them all and in total scored 228 goals to 115. Looking at Berri, its best last year was good enough to threaten the top sides and there would have been some

doom and gloom around when stars like Kimberley Wade, Michelle Wenman and Kelly Scholefield became unavailable this season. But then recruitment of Renmark’s Tegan Moldovan to captain the young team and the sound form of coach Tori Brown, Nicole Hall and exciting youngsters Ellee Eleftheriadis and Taylee Howard has resulted in Berri hanging out the ‘business as usual’ sign. Renmark had a host of stars in dealing with Loxton last weekend, seemingly without a passenger and with a number still trying to get on board, it will be the ideal barometer for Berri to see where it is at early in 2012. The two teams without a win so far this season, Barmera and Loxton North, meet in tomorrow night’s other game. Barmera’s new enthusiasm has also been well documented and with Mackella Armfield, Jules Morgan, Katie Saville and Meg Gillespie all in good form it should notch up its first victory. On the other hand, Loxton North has suffered some hefty defeats so far but it’s extremely young line-up is still finding some admirers for the way it is tackling this rebuilding phase. Marlee George, Erika Sporn, Tara Learhinan, Mikayla Graetz and Jordan Jachmann are amongst juniors really standing up at this level.

More than 200 cyclists set to take part in annual ride this weekend

Tour of the Riverland

■ THE annual Bob Francis Memorial Handicap race last Sunday was a good hit out for the local cyclists who will ride in Saturday’s 38th Tour Of The Riverland. The event will involve 81 kilometres starting at 1.30pm at the Berri Resort Hotel and finishing near Foodbank Berri after travelling via Loxton, Berri Estates Winery and Renmark. The Francis Memorial event was a hard fought race on the undulating Lindsay Point Road course but a legend of the Riverland Club, life member Gordon Lawton, proved age is no barrier by winning the event ahead of Colin Gordon, Ruth Strout and Angelo Ylia. The fastest time went to Chris Gartery.

■ WINNER: The fast paced finish to the Tour of the Riverland is exciting. The club welcomed the presence once again of Bob Francis’ widow Dulcie and their son Peter to send the cyclists off in the race and then present the trophies at the finish. Members of the Riverland Club who will start in

this year’s Tour of the Riverland are Colin Gordon, Nathan Gregurke, Glen O’Brien and Lee Rasheed, while a number of others will assist in the running of the event, including serving as marshalls. If rumours are correct, one such official will be posted at the roundabout near the Berri bridge and will engage her triple air horn to help to keep the riders’ minds on the job. Also acting as a Marshall will be Renmark’s Peter Burr who was the overall winner of the event in 1986. I rang Peter on Tuesday night and asked if he was the only local person ever to win the race and how this had not been more widely acknowledged.

He explained that even though he had been born in this area, he had actually been living in Adelaide in 1986 and had returned here to compete. Peter also thought that John Bodroghy, who was the overall race winner in 1987, had Riverland connections. Meanwhile in 2012, it appears there will be a large number of riders here for the event which is rated as the biggest and richest cycling weekend in the state. As of last Friday, entries were on target to reach around 200. After the senior tour gets underway on Saturday, a 36 kilometre junior handicap race will start from the Berri Resort Hotel at 2pm then on Sunday from the same point, both a junior

Heinrich speeds home to win feature event at Waikerie Sunline Speedway ■ RHYS Heinrich improved on two second placings in the heats to win the feature in last Saturday night’s Steve Butcher Memorial race for Street Stocks at Waikerie’s Sunline Speedway. The winners of the heats were Neville Nitschke, Barry Sullivan and Jason Gantz, who grabbed pole position, but in the end podium positions were filled by Heinrich, the hard charging Darren Brumfield and Gantz. In another memorial race, the Grant Seely for Formula 500s, Angelo Karousis and Scott Dungay, dominated the two heats. Karousis, from pole, looked to have the event in his keeping until, with four laps remaining, his engine let go and dropped oil on turns three and four.

After a clean-up of the track, Dungay led from the restart to win the race from Shaun Brown, Joe Mercorella and on debut Kim Strother. This meeting at Sunline was ranked one of the most exciting programs in the track’s history but unfortunately not all events were able to be finalised because of a long delay when there were concerns for Danielle Stuman’s welfare after she was involved in an accident during the feature race of the juniors. Wingless Sprints did find a winner with Andy Thomas finishing ahead of Lucy Evans, while Wayne Vickers took out Super Sedans from Mick Bagorski and Steve Letts. There were, however, hard

luck stories in both events. Mikayla Hein was forced to withdraw from the Wingless Sprints after a collision when she appeared to have the race in her keeping, while in Super Sedans, heat winner Shane Roffey went too hard at the start of the feature and crashed out at the first turn. The only other event completed was the last race, the Figure 8, 10 lap feature, which involved 20 cars and resulted in Jason Gantz completing a good meeting, with a win overall. In Lightning Sprints, Modifieds as well as Juniors, the feature was cancelled while the AMCA Spectacular has been rescheduled for the next meeting on the June long weekend. Heat winners in Lightning

Sprints had been Jason Wilson and Kate Weiss and in Modified Sedans, Terry Brown and Wade McCarthy (including an eight lap record) came out on top. In Juniors, Andy Maxwell and Harley Ray Moore both won two heats. That next meeting on Sunday June 10 will close the 2011/12 season and will also feature the Wally Francombe Memorial for Super Sedans, Modified Sedans, Formula 500s, Wingless Sprints, Street Stocks, Juniors and Classics.

Increased interest in Masters softball carnival ■ ENTRIES have increased for the 2012 Riverland Masters Softball carnival to be held at Berri’s Glassey Park on the June long weekend. The three day tournament from Saturday June 9 will have nine teams, defending champion Cobdogla plus visitors from Sunraysia, Yorke Peninsula, Adelaide Hills, Gawler, Port Pirie and three teams from Central Districts. There will be 36 matches played over the weekend, 16 on each of the first two days and four on Monday. The first games on Saturday and Sunday will be at 8am and the last match wil take place at 3.45pm. Monday’s times are 8.30am and 10.15am with presentations will follow. This event commenced in 1992 when six teams entered and was introduced so that the Riverland side could prepare for its first visit to the Alice Springs Masters Games. Those games are held every two years and it has been noticed that an increase in entries in the Riverland carnival occurs at those times as other teams obviously warm up for the trip north. In 2011, it was the first occasion that Cobdogla had won the title at the carnival and with a number of strong teams entered for this year’s event, officials are working towards building a squad capable of defending the crown. Subject to final availability, a squad, to be coached by Marianne Smith, is Julie Cook, Gloria Dyer, Sue Gapco, Mary Geddie, Yolande Gower, Jo Gregory, Monica Haaja, Wendy Leckie, Deb Lidgerwood, Kerry Miles, Colleen Smith, Vickie Taylor, Cara Venning and Lyn Wutke.

RENMARK will host the 2012/13 Australian Cricketers' Association Masters Tour in what is being described as a big boost for the local community. Boasting a selection of former international and state cricketers in the squad including Brad Hogg, Darren Lehmann and Greg Matthews, the tour is expected to be held between October and March. The Renmark Paringa Council was approached about hosting the event in April and during Tuesday night’s council meeting, it accepted the invitation and approved a $10,000 hosting fee.

services manager Adrian Pipe said there has been interest from local stakeholders about hosting the tour. "Initial discussions with several local businesses as potential partners and/or sponsors have been extremely positive," he wrote in the council agenda. "Overall it is felt that the Masters Tour provides a unique opportunity for our community and one that has proven to be very popular in other regions. The South Australian Cricket Association recommended Renmark as a highly suitable location to host the Masters Tour.
