BRAD PERRY Answers needed for citrus industry WHEN you speak to a citrus grower who has been in the industry for two decades and he tells you times are tough - you know times are certainly tough. The citrus industry is again struggling for profitable returns and it appears both navels and valencias are returning very little to the grower. While growers in the Riverland are very resilient, there comes a time when they reach a breaking point and they say enough is enough. I am seeing more citrus growers reach that point and they are bulldozing down trees. If it is not profitable then there is no point continuing. The Riverland orange is something very unique with great flavour both fresh and in juice form. Local growers know the value of citrus to the region and while some may be pulling out trees, they are replanting a different variety or diversifying to keep them going. What they really want to hear is some direction about the citrus industry going forward, so they can plan their future.

Berri’s division one tennis bid

THE RIVERLAND may see an influx of tourists to the region in the warmer months with the potential of another bumper yabby season as River Murray flows continue to rise. Local fishing guru John Cockshell said while a number of factors still have to fall into place, there is hope that yabbies will return in large numbers as the weather warms up. “It is going to depend on how long the water stays up for,� he said. “At the moment there is a few starting to move, not in big numbers, but you’ll pick up a few here and there if you want to put the time in. “Now that the warmer weather is coming, that’s when the yabbies will come out a bit more.� With River Murray flows hitting 45,000 megalitres per day into South Australia, Mr Cock-

shell said he expects to see numbers steadily rise. “There is every chance that the current flows are going to hold for a little while and if it can hang around for another month, we should be able to pick up a few more yabbies,� he said. Mr Cockshell said during the previous high river situation in the Riverland with yabbies in abundance, it drew tourists to the region. On the other hand, Mr Cockshell said now is an ideal time to fish with areas in Kingston, Moorook, Berri, Loxton and Renmark named as potential good spots. “Fishing is just starting to pick up again now with some big ones being caught around the place,� he said. “People think the fish aren’t on the go during winter but they are there all the time.�

Now that the warmer weather is coming, that’s when yabbies will come out a bit more.

Premier wants to send message to Canberra SOUTH Australian Premier Jay Weatherill is calling on people who care about the Murray to show their support by sending a message to Canberra that the river needs more water. With the Murray Darling Basin Plan expected to be tabled in Federal Parliament soon, Mr Weatherill is urging people to voice their opinions on the water situation. So far more than 13,000 people have joined the Fight for the Murray campaign, more than 7500 people have ‘liked’ the campaign on Facebook and nearly 500 Twitter followers have come onboard. However, Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone said spending $2 million on the Fight for the Murray campaign is a waste of taxpayers’ dollars. “The Premier came up to the Riverland and he has painted trucks, he is launching boats, he’s got billboards with save the river on them and yet, he is doing

nothing about saving the river,� Mr Whetstone said. “My concern is the Premier is preaching to the converted, he is using untested science with his numbers and the region is not about numbers, the region is about outcomes. “My concern is the electorate of Chaffey will feel the impact of the basin plan more than any other region in South Australia, so we need to be solution based to reduce any impact on the communities and the food producers for the benefit of a sustainable river and the environment.� Mr Whetstone said the premier and River Murray Minister Paul Caica should be camped outside Federal Water Minister Tony Burke’s office in Canberra, not appealing to the obvious political campaign. “I’m very concerned that if we go down the High Court Challenge, that will be another 20 years before we get an

outcome,� he said. “We could have two droughts in 20 years and still have no basin plan because we have got it in the High Court.� Using the people power from the campaign, Mr Weatherill said the state’s voice will be heard. “During recent visits along the length of the South Austra-

VISITORS embraced the sun during yesterday’s Riverland Field Days as about 7200 people came through the gates. With almost 400 exhibitors drawing them in, crowd figures were higher than the first day of the popular event last year. Riverland Field Days committee chairman Anthony Fulwood said the fine weather helped bring more people to the event. “It was a very good day,” he said. “We were very lucky that the weather held off and the rain stayed away. “I was just talking to a couple of exhibitors and they are very happy, they’ve had a good day and are looking forward to (today).”

With volunteers working for the past 12 months to organise the Riverland Field Days, Mr Fulwood said they were ecstatic to see the fruits of their labour. Highlights of the first day included the sound shattering firing of the military cannon and the family friendly atmosphere. “One of the things that stood out was the military cannon that went off, that was loud and made everybody jump a bit,” Mr Fulwood laughed. “The schools’ performances on the Rabobank stage have been really good and Marion Grasby’s cooking demonstrations have been extremely popular.”

Reassurances over staffing levels as director retires n end: Riverland Regional Health Services director Tom Neilson will retire in November.

RIVERLAND Regional Health Services director Tom Neilson has announced he will retire and step down from his position in November. Country Health SA adjunct Professor Belinda Moyes said the recruitment process to fill the director role will commence shortly. Ms Moyes thanked Mr Neilson for his efforts and wished him all the best for the future. “Tom has had a long and distinguished career within rural South Australia and has been a wonderful health leader in the Riverland,” she said. “He has been a steadfast and loyal employee of CHSA and I hope he enjoys a happy and healthy retirement.” Mr Neilson said he was leaving to enjoy new challenges and that working with CHSA will

remain as one of his life’s most positive experiences. Meanwhile, Mr Neilson has denied claims that there are unfilled vacancies for nursing positions and that staff at the Riverland Regional Hospital in Berri are being called on to work additional hours. “Staffing requirements at Berri Hospital are continuously monitored to ensure compliance with the relevant enterprise agreement,” he said. “Nursing and midwifery staff at Berri Hospital are not undertaking double shifts. “The hospital has a range of overtime minimisation strategies in place and any required overtime is monitored closely by hospital management. “During times of annual leave, hospital management ensures there is adequate staffing to meet enterprise agreement requirements and we have recently recruited to fill a number of ongoing vacancies.”

Very hot summer to heighten fire risk WITH predictions of the hottest summer in at least three years, Riverland residents are being urged to prepare and practice a bushfire action plan. The Weather Channel is forecasting an increase in bushfires, temperature and heatwaves across Australia during the severe weather season from October to April. “There is a heightened risk of bushfires this season for most of the country compared to the 2010/11 and 2011/12 seasons,” The Weather Channel chief meteorologist Dick Whitaker said. The unrelenting rain from two consecutive La Nina years has now cleared and in its place Australia’s warm and dry weather returns with the hotter outlook a result of the weak El Nino combined with abnormal Indian Ocean temperatures.

Senior citizens lose Loxton bus service LOXTON senior citizens are being isolated from the community and cannot afford to leave their homes after they were told they could no longer be picked up by a State Government bus service. The bus was believed to be picking up residents and dropping them off at selected locations for a minimal fee. However, it is understood a change in regulations means the citizens can no longer use the bus service. Loxton Waikerie Council Deputy Mayor Mark Ward raised the issue during a council meeting and met to discuss the issue with the Loxton Health Advisory Committee on Tuesday night. Mr Ward said he believes it is a community bus service funded by Country Health SA and may have been transporting senior citizens. He said the service is now only able to accommodate Country Health SA service clients only. “They were doing their little bits and pieces for the community by picking up people and bringing them to meetings and doctors’ appointments and for some unknown reason there has been a few of them that have been isolated or not able to use the bus service due to being outside of the criteria they have laid down,” Mr Ward said. “It all comes down to funding and some of them have been paying for the service but they’ve only been paying a minimal amount of money.” Mr Ward said he has been told of at least eight people who were using the service but have been told they no longer fit the criteria. “Unfortunately unless we have that sort of service for these people they are going to be isolated in their houses and they’ll either have to take a taxi, which they can’t really afford, or walk there and a lot of them can’t do that either,” he said.

ucation officer Ross Fairbank said local residents must be prepared in case of a bushfire. “The risks are we need to make sure that our blocks are cleared of any vegetation that could burn,” he said. “We need to make sure that when we are out on the river and we are out in the open, that we are aware of the risks when we are camping, that we know what those risks around us might be. “If you’ve got blocks, now is the time to be cleaning up these blocks because fire season is coming in November.” n hot: A map released by The Weather Channel showing the rising temperatures across Australia between October and April.

Chowilla floodplain would benefit from big drink CHOWILLA Station owner James Robertson (pictured) believes the floodplain would benefit from a big drink from River Murray flows coming into South Australia. Currently flows are being restricted into the state so work will not stall again on the construction of the Chowilla environmental regulator. This week flows topped the 45,000 megalitre per day mark, almost seven times the average for this time of year. “I think we all realise how important getting the regulator built is but it is disappointing that we’re knocking back a natural flooding event in order to achieve it,”

Mr Robertson said. While Mr Robertson supports the concept of the regulator, he said the Murray Darling Basin Authority and state and federal governments need to take advantage of the high flows and release water from storages. Mr Robertston said the Chowilla Floodplain is in top condition coming into summer. “The floodplains looking fantastic but it would have been just marvellous to get an overbank flow,” he said. “It really would have kicked the floodplains into gear but having said that, it is looking the best it has looked for 15 or so years.”

Local wineries amongst winners at prestigious awards n From Page 1 “Even though we didn’t have a huge amount of gold, roughly 40 per cent of all entries got some form of medal which was quite good. “The 2011 reds showed that it was a difficult vintage but there is some great wines from

2012 and the whites from 2011 and 2012 were pretty good too. “The strongest classes were the fortified classes but that makes sense in a warm climate like ours.” Wines from over the border dominated most classes of judging with Best Wine in

Show going to the 2008 De Bortoli Wines Botrytis Semillon, the Most Successful Exhibitor went to Rutherglen based Pfeiffer Wines, Best Dry Red was won by De Bortoli 2010 Deen Durif and the Best White Wine went to Lindeman’s 2012 bin 95 Sauvignon Blanc. Of the locals to take out

major awards, Angoves Family Winemakers’ Rare Tawny won the Best Fortified Red category and Accolade Wines Rare Muscat was top of the Best Fortified White Wine class. About 130 people attended a gala dinner and public tasting at Ruston’s Roses in Renmark last night.

A LOCAL service has expressed concern over the arrests of six people in the Riverland for assaults on their partners on the weekend. Centacare Murraylands Domestic Violence Service has re-emphasised the point that no domestic violence should be tolerated in the community. In the six separate incidents over the weekend that led to arrests, a 28-year-old Berri man allegedly threatened to kill his ex-partner, a 42-year-old Renmark man was arrested after threatening, grabbing and then shaking his female partner and a Barmera man allegedly pushed his female partner against a wall. Currently the local domestic violence service is dealing with 127 people. “We are concerned by one assault and this weekend there have been several,” Centacare Murraylands Domestic Violence Service’s Ele Wilde said. “However it is not unusual for us to receive multiple referrals after a weekend.

“Domestic violence should not be tolerated in our community at all.” Ms Wilde said domestic violence is not a one off event. “It occurs regularly over a period of time and does not have to be physical assault,” she said. “Domestic violence takes many forms including financial, social, spiritual, unwanted communications and sexual abuse. “It is a community responsibility to care for our family, friends and neighbours.” The number of people who are ignoring domestic violence is also concerning, according to Ms Wilde. “If someone hears or witnesses domestic violence they should do all they can to stop it,” she said. “Not by trying to stop a physical assault but make a phone call, talk privately to the victim and say that the abusive behaviour is against the law and it hurts children too. “After all if an incident occurs in the street people become concerned and do what they can.

“So why is it different if the abuse is occurring between couples? “A phone call could save someone’s life and children should not bear the burden of violence/abuse at home.” Ms Wilde said many women in a violent or abusive relationship refuse help for fear of retribution. “It is a scary act to leave someone who has so much power but there is always someone who will help,” she said. “Laws affecting domestic violence changed recently and police have added options to use including immediate removal of perpetrators from a property and immediate Intervention Orders. “Police and community services in the Riverland are all working together in collaboration against domestic violence.” If women require help they can call the Domestic Violence Gateway (1800 800 098) or the National Sexual Assault, Domestic Family Violence Counselling Service (1800RESPECT) on 1800 737 732.

Oversupply hurts citrus growers RIVERLAND growers are removing acres of citrus trees with a continued oversupply of juice fruit and high exchange rates. Fruit is being left on trees because there is no market for it and growers and industry bodies are calling on Citrus Australia to hold an emergency meeting to discuss the direction of growing oranges in the region. Citrus Growers of South Australia chairman Mark Chown said he has personally seen fruit dumped in recent months. “The returns are disgustingly low, fruit quality and size is to be wanted but with the high exchange rate and higher crop loads than we can handle, things are more than ordinary,” he said. “I know of growers who have left quantities of navels on the trees and I’ve also seen a very large number of fruit dumped as the demand for juice has all but diminished. “Obviously juice factories are preferring to buy imports over local product again.” Mr Chown said the industry’s national body needs to find a solution to the problem. “It is just not sustainable and I think the industry needs to have a big think tank of where it is going with oranges in the next five to 10 years,” he said.

“Last year’s low returns were the lowest I can remember and this year’s are even less, so I can’t imagine people are going to continue growing non-profitable varieties. “By the time you do your picking, freight, handling and levies, there is little, or anything, left to grow the crop. “There is no assistance forth coming and markets overseas are certainly full of other country’s fruit.” Loxton North citrus grower Mark Pickering has been in the industry for two decades but he plans to remove a large portion of his orange trees and replant winegrapes. “Rumours are that some of the packing sheds have had up to $60 per tonne to freight it around the place and we’ve got nothing,” he said. “So far it has been a shocking season and still continuing on, even though it is good quality fruit. “We’ll probably switch off another third to a half of our citrus this year.” Mr Pickering, who is also a horticultural consultant, said he feels stuck and that there is nowhere to go. “I know that the last half of the season as far as juice goes, we’ve got nothing for it,” he said.

“It looks like the valencias are going to be as bad, if not worse than the navels.” There is 100 years of citrus growing in the Fulwood family but Waikerie’s Anthony Fulwood admits that this year’s citrus crops are providing very little in returns. “Anybody who is growing citrus would like to have a better option this year,” he said. “It doesn’t look good for future generations. “There is no silver bullet at present.” The industry is resilient, according to Member for Chaffey and citrus grower Tim Whetstone. “The industry is resilient but growers are hurting,” he said. “They are going through a really tough time at the moment but the development of good, strong key export markets, a strong domestic climate and the Australian dollar are key players in the viability of the citrus industry. “What we are seeing is a generational change at the moment.” Former Citrus Industry Development Board chief executive officer Andrew Green said there is concern from growers in the industry about funds for research and information.

“We’ve had drought and we were optimistic when we started to get our water back but we’ve had two years when the exchange rate has been right up and we’ve had some marketing decisions in some of our export markets, which I believe, have really hurt the industry,” he said. “Growers are really concerned where they are going to get their information from, their market updates, their crop estimates and all the rest. “Without that information it is going to be really difficult to market produce in a sensible manner.” Citrus Australia chair Tania Chapman was unavailable for comment.

Tourism group’s website proposal THE Riverland Tourism Association will seek external funding for a project to create a regional website after it was unsuccessful in its application to the $20 million Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund. The group applied for $42,000 for Riverland Website Creation with online booking, links to members’ websites and booking systems, online/SMS notification of internet enquiries to tourism op-

erators and a continually updated events calendar. While the RTA’s submission to access the funding was denied, RTA chairman Peter Freeman said it will not stop the project from going forward. “We had a quote for doing all of the things that we wanted to do which was a very comprehensive website with sophisticated online booking and links to tourism opertators’ websites,” he said.

“We felt that there has been no website in the Riverland that has offered all of these features.” Mr Freeman said he believes the website is necessary for the region and further details on the project will be discussed at the group’s next meeting in October. “We are hoping to make a start on the website despite the fact that we’ve got no website and despite the fact we’ve got no external funding,” he said.

Convention appeals to Witnesses FOR a number of decades Loxton father and son Sam and Craig Crisp have been attending the annual threeday Jehovah’s Witness Convention in Adelaide. Along with about 120 Riverland and Mallee residents from Loxton, Renmark and Pinnaroo, the Crisp family will travel to the event beginning tomorrow to “keep us focused on what God’s going to do for the future”. “A lot of people feel that God is not so interested in what’s happening but we feel that he certainly is and through his Kingdom, which we pray for through the Lord’s Prayer, there will be a big change on the Earth itself,” Craig, an elder for the past 11 years, said. “In the past, we talk about the end of the world but when we talk about the end of the world, it’s not the end of the Earth but the end

of wicked people. “Obviously we can’t judge that as humans and if we believe in an all powerful God, he is the one that can judge. “We believe there is going to be a time when people are brought back from the dead to the Earth and the Earth will be a paradise, it won’t be like it is today with all the wars and conflicts that are going on.” The theme for this year’s convention is ‘Safeguard your Heart’ and the subjects spoken about will include ‘What is true love?’ and ‘The former things will not come up into the heart’, which is intended to explore the time ahead when people will no longer have the need to carry the legacy of a difficult past. Loxton Jehovah’s Witness Sam Crisp ended a football career in Naracoorte and became a Jehovah’s Witness in

his young adult years. “I loved the game and I loved the popularity to a point too but I could see that really meant nothing and once you are finished you are a nobody again and that’s the way life is,” Sam said. Sam said he became a Jehovah’s Witness for the future of his children. “I was always concerned for my children because even then the world had its bad points and I worried what the future would be for my kids,” Sam said. “When I was shown from the Bible itself what the future holds, that was a hope for me to be able to help them get a better life and a better life for everyone. “To see there is something better for everybody and to live in peace with no more war, no more sickness, no more death, that was what really appealed to me.”

Forget footy, donate blood FOOTBALL fans are being urged to give blood in the Riverland during the finals series in a bid to maintain blood stocks. The Australian Red Cross Blood Service is concerned that donor numbers might drop as fans are preoccupied with the football finals. The Blood service will visit Renmark, Loxton, Berri and Waikerie over the next week. Blood Service spokeswoman Emma Schreiber is reminding locals to book their appointment to donate in the Riverland during September and October. “With one in three of us needing blood in our lifetime it’s essential that people don’t forget about blood donation this footy finals series,” Ms Schreiber said. “The good news is, the community can donate near their home ground at Renmark, Loxton, Berri and Waikerie. “Donate leading up to and following the finals and you won’t miss a minute of the game.” Ms Schreiber said blood would help give other footy fans a chance to see their team succeed. “Thousands of Australians need blood every day and that need never stops,” she said. “They are cancer patients, unborn babies, road trauma and burns victims, people undergoing renal dialysis and people undergoing emergency surgery. “These patients are also footy fans just like you, so support both your team and your fellow Australians by making an appointment to give blood.” The Blood service is visiting the Renmark Greek Orthodox Community Hall on Monday (1 to 6pm) and Tuesday (12.30 to 8pm) and at the Loxton Community Recreation and Sporting Club on September 26 (12 to 6.15pm), September 27 (12.30 to 8pm) and September 28 (8am to 1pm). The service will also visit the Berri Senior Citizens Hall on October 2 (1.30 to 6.30pm), October 3 (10.30am to 6pm), October 4 (12.30 to 8pm), October 5 (8am to 1pm) and at the Waikerie Health Service on October 2 (12 to 6.30pm), October 3 (11am to 8pm) and October 4 (8.30am to 2pm).

New plan for kangaroo harvesting A NEW management plan governing the commercial harvest of kangaroos is available for public comment. Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources Kangaroo Ecologist Peter Stokes said the plan had been designed to replace the SA Kangaroo Conservation and Management Plan 2008-12,

which was due to expire at the end of the year. “Commercial harvest of kangaroos is permitted in South Australia under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1972,” Peter said. “The management plan regulates the harvest, covering issues such as quotas, licensing and where kangaroos can legally be taken.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Olympic support thanks MANY thanks to the Riverland public for your hero messages, cards, phone calls and small gifts during my Olympic journey. The support from the Riverland has been overwhelming. Thank you also to the Riverland Weekly and sponsors. Hayden Stoeckel, Berri Swimming Club member.

The price of life WITH regards to the articles in the Riverland Weekly on August 30 and the letter to the editor the previous week on the issue of the bins, may I add a few more pertinent points. According to my sources this is all the fault of the EPA coming into the Riverland and closing all of the landfill dumps, telling councils that they must recycle. Not one council had the intestinal fortitude to stand up and say no. That being the case, then councils do not represent the ratepayers’ interests as they should. If they did, they would have put this out for public debate, not kept it under wraps. Having had the opportunity to voice my concerns for myself and other low income earners struggling to cover ever increasing costs, I was met with blank stares when I asked ‘If I now have to pay again for three bins plus the collection, what am I paying rates for already?’ I don’t have a need for extra bins. As for carting waste out of the district, no-one wants to tell me where it is going. Several locations have been

muted, one as far as 200 kilometres away. If there is any substance to that, what kind of person thinks that is economical or environmentally sound? Just think of the pollution spewing out of trucks each day, the very thing the EPA is supposed to be preventing. Make no mistake folks, this has nothing to do, whatsoever, about the environment but everything to do with money. Leave it go and just like the STEDS scheme, the cost will blow out of all proportion and when you can’t pay you will lose everything. The same thing is happening in the land of the free, known as the good old United States of America. Everybody can see exactly what is happening here. We do all the work for the coucnils, sorting everything into the bins that we pay for and then we pay for it to be picked up and councils get all the ‘gravy’. T. Plumb, Berri.

Concern over dumped dog TO THE heartless scumbag who dumped the long haired tan terrier a few weeks ago, you will be happy to know it is dead. I tried so hard to rescue the little dog but it was so terrified of everything it bolted every time. My worst fear was it would get run over if I continued. The little dog was in poor shape, could have had a broken foot and was starving, eating a dead kangaroo on the side of the road. No animal has to be dumped or made to starve, there is help available.

Have your say about the issues that affect you. I made sure there was plenty of food and water put in a safe place so the dog would not wander looking for food. It had a few days of good food but was I informed the dog was dead somebody who had seen a car hit the dog, not even stopping to see if it was dead or alive. Thank you to the person who took the dog off the road, apparently it was killed instantly. If anybody has a dog and lives near a main road for goodness sake make sure you have proper fencing. I have heard of so many dogs being hit by cars and if you see a dog roaming, check your area to find the owners. Don’t pass the buck onto someone else, be responsible. Council was informed about the little dog and hoped a dog trap could be set up but it was too late. A very big thank you to my friend Cherise, you are always there to help me at anytime and you have a beautiful heart of gold. To the many people who left messages concerning the dog thank you. To the owner of the dog, “your day will come”.

hoped to do for a number of years but has been out of reach because of the cost. This is to completely renovate a bathroom at Hawdon House which is estimated to cost close to $30,000. We have also committed to have renovations made to the Hawdon House kitchen which will cost approximately $7000. It would not be possible without the generous support from our volunteers at the Opportunity Shop and the local community. We would appreciate any help of items for sale at our fete or your presence as a customer. We also invite any other interested stallholders who may wish to sell their own products on that day to phone our president Phyl Pfennig on 8588 2424 or our secretary Fay Partridge on 8582 1305. The cost to have a stall at the event will be $20.

Martina Roberts, Loxton.

I WOULD like to congratulate the Riverland Weekly over the last few weeks for promoting our area to encourage tourists to visit. This is something that our city counterparts are not doing, instead wherever they can putting us down. During the drought the city media painted stories that were far from the truth. The fruit sales like grapes and oranges were again false statements and then there was the Flood Watch, which saw people compare the River Murray with situations in Queensland.

Funds needed for Bonney Lodge upgrades THE Barmera Residential Care Auxiliary will be holding a fete on Sunday, October 14, in the grounds at Bonney Lodge between 9.30am and 3pm. The usual cake, plant, craft stalls will be available, as well as cooked sausages and hamburgers. Funds raised will help us finance a project which our auxiliary has

Joan Hoffmann, Barmera Residential Care Auxiliary.

Attracting tourists

The way these stories were portrayed, it did more harm than good. All we needed was the truth about our situation and not to stretch the truth to make a good story to sell their product. We, as Riverlanders, must put the true facts to the general public. We must sell our area as a good place to come and visit. This is what the Barmera National Trust is trying to promote by gathering local history of our district. We have so much history for the short period of occupation and development. Our irrigation system is the best in Australia for conserving water with drip irrigation and other techniques. Lake Bonney is a good, safe place for all water sports, so let’s not allow this Labor Government to ever close off our lake like they did several years ago. This sent many shockwaves through our area which was a complete waste of taxpayers’ money. People are now realising how good the lake is with more people coming to visit each year. Let’s continue to encourage them to come. The Barmera National Trust is also spending many hours collecting more information and artifacts for our Loveday Internment Camp dispaly at the Cobdogla Irrigation and Steam Museum. However, we cannot have an open day until the large concrete overhead tank is dismantled as it is a potential danger because of falling concrete. Max Scholz, Barmera.

Developers turn away as five year clause on exited properties causes challenges

Calls to lift moratorium C

ALLS to lift a five year moratorium on properties that became vacant under the Small Block Irrigators Exit Grant package have strengthened following enquiries from developers outside of the region. It is understood a number of developers have decided to enquire elsewhere after property they were interested in fell under the five year moratorium. The exit grants provided farmers up to $170,000 to leave the industry but under the agreement, the land could not be irrigated on for five years. Loxton’s Glen Arnold was one of hundreds of growers who decided to accept the grant and exit the winegrape industry. “It wasn’t all that emotional, it was fairly dispassionate because it was a business decision for us,� he said. “The main reason we took it up was because we were losing money and we were getting close to retirement age, so it was a good opportunity to bail out.� Mr Arnold said the decision at the time to offer the package helped people leave the industry with dignity. “Some people were desperate for something like that, where their debts were way high compared to their assets and banks were starting to foreclose on people,� he said. For most growers who took the exit package, there is still the attachment there with council rates to be paid, maintenance required and regular government documents that

He said at the time the exit grants were on offer, people accepted the five year clause. “It was a condition of the package and we accepted it,� he said. “However, if somebody is prepared to put their money into developing that property with new infrastructure again and new plantings and they are prepared to risk their capital to do it, why shouldn’t they.� Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone has called on Federal Water Minister Tony Burke to lift the five year moratorium and said he is looking for support from State Agriculture Minister Gail Gago and newly elected Senator Anne Ruston. “It is about potential buyers who want to buy property, it’s about people wanting to sell the property

Do you work with your family? Do you want your family and your business to have a great future? Then this workshop is for you! PASSING THE BATON WORKSHOP Research shows that 60% of family businesses intend to change ownership (or exit) in the next 5-7 years – yet only 18.4% have a transition plan in place! Are you among the 18.4% who have it all nailed down – or, like most families in business, are       answers every time you visit this issue? YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Families can be torn apart and businesses ruined through lack of communication and planning for retirement, illness or death – but it doesn’t need to be that way. Planning for the future can be a very positive experience, if it’s done properly. Join us for a friendly, interactive workshop providing insights to issues pertinent to each generation and break the process down into digestible sized pieces so that your family can learn how to work together to effect transition which is rewarding for all.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Family business owners, directors, leaders, Next Gen successors and others with a vested interest, professional advisers to families in business.

DMITRE recognises the importance of family businesses to the economy, culture and community in regional areas of South Australia.

that they have made the decision to exit from for one reason or the other and it is now giving the opportunity for another purchaser to help stimulate our economy,� he said. “It’s good arable land with infrastructure in place and we need to get it back into production, so we can stimulate the region’s economy and get back on to the job we do best, using best practice irrigation with an invigorated economy. “I get people come into my office all the time with concerns about this issue.� Mr Whetstone said the five year clause is holding back neighbours from purchasing vacant blocks and expanding. “Neighbours should be able to upgrade their farm size to help with the economies of scale and I don’t think the government should prevent a farmer from using the land with best efficiency irrigation practices in place,� he said. About 180 Central Irrigation Trust growers totalling up to 3000 hectares accepted the package and left the industry and vacant properties are scattered across the Riverland, unable to be irrigated. “Initially, in the short term, it

doesn’t have an impact because there is a thing called a termination fee, so as those people leave they have to terminate their delivery shares and that allows us some breathing space until we can either readjust our systems or see what comes in,� Central Irrigation Trust chief executive officer Gavin McMahon said. “If they stay out over the long run, that will have an impact on us. “As a district we want to be attracting investment back into those areas, it’s critical that developers get access to that because if they can’t do it here, then they will look somewhere else. “Through a number of channels, we’ve tried to see if that could be reviewed but we keep hitting brick walls with it all the way around.� Mr McMahon said there may also be confusion as to when the five year moratorium ends on properties. “It’s a confidential contract between the individual grower and the Commonwealth department, so we can’t find that information out, we’ve tried through a number of avenues to get that and we are unable to get that information,� he said.

erties) back in production that just creates the same problem as we had before.� However, with the option of purchasing temporary water, Family First MLC Robert Brokenshire said the vacant properties could be attractive to potential buyers. “Now there is a chance for people to buy temporary water, they could get back into, at least, annual crop production and stimulate the economy,� he said. As the Riverland continues to push for the five year moratorium to be lifted, in a statement to the Riverland Weekly, the State Government failed to say whether it is supportive of lifting the agreement. “I understand that this Federal Government scheme was designed to provide both a dignified pathway for non-viable irrigators to exit the industry and a mechanism for the Government to ‘buy back’ water allocations as part of the commitments to water reform,� State Agriculture Minister Gail Gago said. “This emergency package enabled some irrigators who were significantly adversely affected by the drought to live in the community with some level of dignity.

As a district we want to be attracting investment back into those areas. “In reality, nobody really knows when one is due back in, it really has got to be a discussion between the property owner and the purchaser.� CCW Co-operative chairman Jim Caddy said the exit grants helped the winegrape industry readjust to oversupply. “We keep talking about reducing irrigation and there won’t be as much water available,� he said. “If you put them (exited prop-

Key to a sustainable future for family businesses RESEARCH shows that 60 per cent of family businesses are expected to change ownership (or exit) in the next five to seven years – yet the 2009 Family Business Australia/ KPMG Survey found that only 18.4 per cent have a transition or succession plan in place. This obviously presents serious implications for the successful continuity of a large proportion of the Riverland’s family businesses and the economy as a whole, given that family businesses employ around 55 per cent of the private sector workforce.

Why the imbalance? The low percentage of families who have (or are even in the process of developing) a succession plan highlights what Family Business Australia (FBA) knows anecdotally to be the issue. “As one amorphous lump, succession planning seems such a huge task with so many emotional, technical and financial elements that families simply put it in the ‘too hard basket’,� Chairman of the South Australian Chapter of FBA Kent Aughey explained. “However, this is the road to disaster for both the family and the business and has potentially serious implications for the economy. “Families can be torn apart and businesses ruined through lack of communication and planning for retirement, illness or death but it doesn’t need to be that way. “Transition/succession planning

can be a very positive experience if it’s done properly.� There will be a unique opportunity to learn how the most successful family businesses ensure that they achieve a win-win outcome for their family and their business through the generations, with FBA bringing its Passing the Baton workshop to the Riverland region with support from The Department for Manufacturing Innovation, Trade, Resources and Energy (DMITRE). DMITRE recognises the importance of family businesses to the economy, culture and community in regional areas of South Australia and is supporting a series of regional workshops. This half-day workshop, which will be held at the Berri Resort Hotel on Wednesday, October 10 from 1pm to 4.30pm, is the first of two inter-connected workshops. The second workshop in April 2013 will build on the knowledge gained during this session. This workshop provides valuable insights that will raise awareness of the issues pertinent to each generation and break everything down into digestible pieces. John Angove of Angove Family Winemakers would like to see all Riverland family businesses take advantage of this unique opportunity. “The lifeblood of the Riverland is driven by family businesses, small medium and large, and the long term health of your business will ensure family prosperity,� he said.

“The opportunity to hear from Family Business Australia on the vital issue of the problems and opportunities of ‘passing the baton’ should not be missed. “If you think you have the issue resolved, or if you have not started to think about it, either way the session will get you thinking. Executive Officer of FBA SA Heather Dowling says the visionary entrepreneurial personality, formidable skill-set, creativity and flexibility that got incumbent family business owners to where they are today are also the key to inventing a creative exit plan that allows them to redirect their energies into other projects and passions while creating space for themselves, their family and the business to grow. “And the next generation’s energy, education and adaptability to modern practices and technology is essential to business renewal and growth,� she said. “‘Blue sky’ thinking and being proactive is the key to successful continuity.� This workshop will provide clear insight to each generation’s issues, which will help family members work together to effect a baton pass that’s rewarding for all. WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Family business owners, directors, leaders, Next Gen successors and others with a vested interest, including professional advisers to families in business.

$9000 raised for St Catherine’s

THIS month’s annual Petticoat Lane event raised $9000 for St Catherine’s aged care home in Berri. A cheque from the organising committee was handed over to St Catherine’s during a special

lunch recently. Petticoat Lane organiser Shirley Ingerson said the amount raised was higher than last year. “The community are just wonderful,” she said. “The Berri community

has always supported us terrifically.” The money raised will go towards the purchase of specialised wheelchairs, a quality care bed and the establishment of a retreat room.

to put out their own fires in witches hats under the supervision of the CFS. At 6.30pm the CFS will light a bonfire and at about 9pm, money raised from the event will be presented to Barmera CFS captain Mark Dowling.

MTA named trainer of the year IN THE same year which the MTA Group Training Scheme celebrates its 30th birthday, the organisation has also been announced as the winner of the in-business Small Training Provider of the Year in the 2012 South Australian Training Awards. Motor Trade Association Chief Executive Officer John Chapman said that the announcement was a very proud moment for the organisation. “All of our staff, apprentices and trainees should be proud of this achievement, as they have all contributed to making the organisation the success that has been recognised,” Mr Chapman said. “It is fitting that we have been recognised in the same year that we turn 30, as it highlights to the community the longevity of the training we provide and also the continual quality and relevance to the industry. “We have over 650 students currently completing training through our Training and Employment Centre at Royal Park and of the almost 2600 that have previously undertaken our training, around 65 per cent have been successful in gaining their qualifications. “This is significantly higher than the national average of around 48 per cent completion and something we continue to work on improving.” The MTA considers the uniqueness of its training delivery as a significant factor to

meet again at the Waikerie Club at 10am on Tuesday. Facilitator Nan Mackereth said the meeting was a huge success. “I was absolutely gobsmacked by the support,” she said. “I’m really confident it will go ahead.”

While the group is yet to decide on a location for a facility, it has already received donations of equipment. In a touching gesture, the McKinnon family donated a special wood lathe, while a welder and grinder were also donated.

The program has been very successful with around six apprentices gaining employment within the racing industry. “We have also recently completed a Monaro show

car which has been built from an empty shell by our apprentices and trainers,” Mr Chapmans said. “This project again offers our apprentices a unique opportunity to work on a high performance vehicle with specialised body work and paint work, something which they would not often get until well into their careers.” The MTA is also unique in that it a Registered Training Organisation, a Group Training Organisation and an Industry Association. “We are training and employing for the industry, but most importantly it is run by the industry,” Mr Chapman said. “This means that we are able to deliver the skills and training which industry requires and help meet the current and future demands of skilled automotive tradespeople.” The MTA is currently planning celebrations for its 30th birthday which will be held in November this year. “As part of our celebrations we want all current and previous apprentices and host employers to be involved,” Mr Chapman said.

AST your eye over this well presented double brick home. This home features two good-sized bedrooms both with built-in robes, and a lounge with gas and combustion heating and evaporative airconditioning. Timber floors throughout most of the home are a great feature. A rear extension is ideal as an extra living area, playroom or office and the renovated kitchen, laundry and bathroom are sure to impress. The home is situated on a double allotment with the added bonus of rear lane access. The front and back yards are filled with native trees and shrubs which require very little maintenance or water and there are even two garden beds waiting to be filled

Degenhardt said he is already looking forward to next year. “It definitely feels good and it shows that the club has got confidence in me and I think by being re-appointed you can finish off the things you started in the previous 12 months,� he said. “It is something the club has been lacking, that they haven’t had anybody they can re-appoint and it does make me feel good to be able to go back and finish off the work I started this year.� With Franks signing on for another season, Degenhardt said he has brought a lot to the club. “I think that is one of the biggest coups of the year to have him appointed as coach of the colts,� Degenhardt said. “He is a star player and he is a player that is good with kids and we appointed him because we want him

East Murray holds meeting to discuss future THE East Murray Football Club is holding a meeting on Sunday to discuss its future in the Riverland Independent football competition. After struggling for help, both on and off the field in 2012, the club is hoping to gain enough support to keep it afloat. East Murray Football Club president David Andriske said the club is about 10 to 15 players short of comfortably fielding a senior team in 2013. With extra numbers available, Mr Andriske said part-time players and those people who had planned to retire from the sport do not have to play

every week. “The reason for calling the meeting is just like many other clubs, we are struggling for player numbers and volunteers behind the scenes as well and we just wanted to get the feel on what they think the future of the community club is,� he said. “We are not trying to hide the problem, we just want to bring it out into the open to our community and try and get a common direction. “Overall we are hoping to band the community together and all focus on moving forward in the one direction, as one group.�

Mr Andriske said if it does not receive any help or interest from new players, the club will seriously have to look at the club not fielding teams in 2013. “We don’t want to be in that situation if we don’t have to be,� he said. “Since raising attention on the issue we have had a lot of positive feedback and a lot of positive talk for next year but a lot of it is only talk at this stage.� The meeting will be held at the East Murray Football Club at 2pm on Sunday. For more information, please contact David Andriske on 0427 792 022.

Roos’ thrilling flag finish A

FTER 23 years without tasting premiership success, Barmera-Monash held off a fast finishing Waikerie to win the flag at Renmark Oval on Saturday in front of an estimated crowd of more than 3000 people. From the first centre clearance the Roos looked focused and intent on getting the job done and nearly had the perfect start after a rare deliberately rushed behind resulted in a free kick on goal to Robert Price. However, Price’s checkside was off the mark and Murray Middleton’s sensational tackle on Whillas Medalist Michael Bratton also resulted in a minus score, after he hit the post from a set shot. A sensational snap on the left by Lachie Middleton brought the crowd to its feet and when Michael Smart’s tackle on Tom Eldredge resulted in a free kick and goal, the Roos had the early break. While Waikerie went forward on a number of occasions, it was Dillon Millard who provided pace and rebound from defence. With Waikerie young gun Joseph Haines withdrawing before the start of the match with what looked to be a knee problem, the Magpies had trouble finding run. The lead extended to three goals when Marc Elliott snatched the ball off the back of a pack to run into an open goal square. Waikerie ruckman Craig Miller finally got his team on the board with a major following Ben Venning’s strong contested mark and bullet-like pass. Sam Elliott and Jack Selfe injected themselves into the game and the end result was a Marc Elliott goal after being front and centre at a contest. The margin was reduced just before the quarter time siren when Venning was the frist to recover from a marking contest to soccer through his first goal. he Magpies were slow to start in the second term and allowed Sam Elliott to kick a brilliant snap over his shoulder for a major and shortly after, his brother received a free kick for a push in the back and a 50 metre penalty resulted in another goal. Facing a 25 point deficit, Bratton continued to work hard with a great rundown tackle on Selfe but despite going forward sevearl times, the Magpies could not find the goals. At the other end, Sam Elliott’s precision pass found Lachie Middleton whose booming kick from 40 metres sailed through the middle. When Brett McPherson also goaled from long range, the margin was suddenly out to 37 points. Waikerie’s Ben Venning marked on the lead and his swinging kick snuck home for a major to reduce the margin to 27 and keep the Magpies in the match. Playmaker Marc Elliott’s handball to Ryan Burns resulted in another Roos’ goal as the minor premier took a 35 point lead into half time. Tim Bevan had plenty of the football to the major break and young Callan Buchecker provided spark across the forward line.

enning began the third quarter in the best possible way with a strong tackle on Danny Millard resulting in a goal but Marc Elliott replied just minutes later. After a miraculous bounce to the goal square, Elliott again took the most of his opportunities for a six pointer out of the air. Going into the match with injury concerns, Damian Stevens began to get his hands on the football and his shot was marked on the goal line by Venning, who reduced the margin back to 35 points. Craig Underwood provided his team with some run but the Magpies failed to penetrate the Barmera-Monash defence led by Matt Leyson and Danny Millard, especially with Venning being moved to half back to stop the flow of Roos goals. A costly mistake at a boundary throw-in, awarded Marc Elliott a free kick in the pocket and with little margin for error, he made no mistake. Inspired by Tim Bevan’s three bounces on the wing, Steven Braun, having been shifted forward, took one of the marks of the day and finished off his good work with a goal. acing a 36 point margin going into the final quarter, it seemed likely Waikerie would take the foot off the accelerator and the margin would blow out. Instead, Waikerie co-coaches Brenton Kay and Craig Griffiths swung the changes with Stevens going into the middle of the ground, Venning into the ruck and Jim Thomson up forward. After two behinds to the Roos, both teams traded goals with Bevan, then Baldock and Matt Underwood and Middleton kicking majors in a stalemate battle. However, it seemed a switch was flicked for Waikerie when Shane McKinnon’s free kick and goal reduced the score to 27 points. With Bevan, Bratton, Stevens and Jim Thomson in most of the play, two Clayton Lush goals reduced the margin to 15 points to give the Magpies a chance, deep into the final quarter. A great finish by Jim Thomson and another less than a minute later left the margin at just three points. With all the momentum, Waikerie’s Eldredge made a costly turnover on the wing with his kick across the ground missing its target and resulting in a turnover. As Baldock got stretchered off, the Roos peppered the goals, only to increase the margin by behinds. When the siren sounded, the Barmera-Monash crowd erupted before sprinting onto the field to embrace their team that had not won an A grade flag since 1989. With six goals, Marc Elliott was named best on ground, while Tim Bevan, playing in the midfield, tried hard for the losing team. Dillon Millard capped off a superb season with his trademark run from defence and through the middle, while Waikerie was unable to keep up with the speed of Jack Selfe and Ryan Burns played an important shutdown job on ball magnet Michael Bratton.

? Did you know..?

Barmera-Monash’s five consecutive premiership wins has only been bettered by Loxton in the early 1960s. During that era, ‘Buff’ Tyrrell filled a void up forward, booting 100 goals in a season on two occassions.

Three in a row IT was history in the making at Renmark Oval on Saturday when Waikerie won its third straight premiership with a 28-point victory over Berri in the Riverland Football League B grade grand final. After a 35-point half time lead and holding Berri goalless, Waikerie finished the job despite a fightback from the Demons in the final quarter. Clinton Williams was named best on ground, while Joel Fladrich, Steve Liebich and Cameron Wells were also good. For the Demons, Rory Correll, Tyson Schrapel and Dylan Quinn impressed in a losing effort.

Burns to decide on coaching future BARMERA-MONASH premiership coach Lyndon ‘Snoopy’ Burns is unlikely to coach in 2013 as he contemplates a move to Adelaide. The 305-game veteran, who was a member of Barmera-Monash’s six premiership teams in the 1980s and captain during the 1987 flag, is weighing up his future with the opportunity to move to Adelaide to be closer to his children. “Both my boys are in town and my daughter is going to university and I’ve got an opportunity with work to transfer for 12 months to town and we are looking at that,� he said. “If that wasn’t the case, my hand would be up to do the job again.� Burns said winning the premiership on Saturday and breaking the premiership drought is something he will never forget. “The club needed it, the town needed it and the supporters needed it,� he said. “There was a huge crowd down at the footy club on Saturday night and the boys were treated like rock stars as they walked in.�

■WIN: Barmera-Monash captain Matt Leyson and coach Lyndon Burns hold the cup aloft. However, the grand final at Renmark did not go as smoothly as planned with Waikerie making a spirited fight back in the last 15 minutes. “It seemed like that last quarter went for an hour,� he said. “We kept our structure a little bit but they just smashed us in the midfield and we just stopped. “It was pretty intense that last 15 minutes of the game, so it was overwhelming when the siren went. “It was surreal, I couldn’t believe it, I didn’t even see Robert Price kick for goal be-

cause there was people jumping all over me.� With a number of friends watching from the sidelines, including premiership teammates, Burns began to feel the pressure in the final term. His ability to make changes was also hampered by injuries to ruckman Luke Chamberlain, Ryan Burns appearing to pull up sore and Brett McPherson receiving a yellow card. “Once they were getting the ball out of the middle, we swung Tyler Baldock loose in defence,� Burns said. “I was limited to what I could do.� Baldock was stretchered off late in the last quarter and it was left to the remaining fit players to dig deep. “I said to the boys before the game, it takes four quarters to win a premiership and we played three and a half and we got over the line, so I’m pretty happy with that,� he said. Former Waikerie footballer and Richmond player Brad Helbig was in attendance to watch the game, as was St Kilda’s Sam Fisher, supporting Barmera-Monash.

CHARLIE’S SPORTS GOSS

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

WITH GRAHAM CHARLTON

Loxton’s flag shoot-out ■ MINOR premier Waikerie reversed the result of the second semifinal to defeat defending champion Loxton 5-2 in the grand final of the Riverland men’s A grade hockey at Glassey Park on Saturday. Waikerie had last won the premiership in 2009. In Saturday’s match, the move of Lachy Seabrook to defence where he controlled the area and marshalled his support, the dominance of a midfield that included best on ground award winner Brenton Kroehn, Michael Camilleri and Jason Redemski and opportunistic skills of Rowan Hope were the ingredients of a clinical display that did not let Loxton into the contest. Under pressure from Waikerie’s fast attacking moves and precision passing, Loxton found itself 3-1 down at half time and despite the defensive efforts of Tim Cass and Jay Fforde and bursts from Tim Vivian and Zac Schubert, it never looked like seriously threatening to take control. In fact, Brett Stokes, who umpired in the game, said that Loxton looked flat and did not display the intensity of the earlier final between the two teams. “I could not help thinking that so many of their players having taken part in the under 18 final earlier had taken its toll on them,” he said. “But you can take nothing away from Waikerie. “They were terrific in the way they went about controlling the game on the way to winning the premiership. “Lachy Seabrook in defence and Brenton Kroehn set it all up.” As predicted, the women’s A grade final between Loxton and

Renmark went right down to the wire – to a golden goal finish. It was a stalemate, 0-0 at half time and still the same at the end of full time. Both teams had opportunities to score but generally it was a battle of the defences. Goalkeeper Tracey Townsend, Louise Smith and Pauline Hennig for Loxton and for Renmark Tegan Moldovan supported by Toni Casey, Sally Giles and Rebecca Keynes, repeatedly thwarted any scoring chances that came their way. That was despite the frantic efforts to breach the resistance by players like Billie-Jo Hammerstein, Steph Baird, Tara Allister and Eloise Hampel for Loxton and Juliet Mallinson, Danielle Weeks and Jamie Butters for Renmark. In the end it came down to that golden goal described by Stokes as “a cruel, sudden death end to such an even contest”. And it took a touch of brilliance after only two minutes of the extra 20 minutes available to give Loxton the title. “It was a fairly standard set play that did it,” Stokes said. “Eloise Hampel delivered a clever pass and Steph Baird threw herself at the ball to put it under the goalkeeper for the decider.” Hampel was named best on ground as Loxton won its fifth title in a row. In other competitions, the men’s B grade was won by Loxton with best on ground award winner Nathan Fielke leading his team to a 2-1 victory over Berri and in the women’s B grade grand final, Waikerie, with Sarah Schiller best on ground, defeated Berri 4-3 in another extra time decider.

Loxton, with best on ground Zac Schubert, won the under 18 men’s premiership 4-2 over Berri and Waikerie, with Ashleigh Baker scoring four goals and named best on ground, took out the under 16 women grand final 5-1 against Renmark. In the under 15 men’s title decider it was Waikerie again for the flag with a 5-2 win over Berri and in the under 12 mixed competition another golden goal was necessary to give Renmark the premiership 3-2 against Waikerie White. Lachie Harkness (Waikerie) was best on ground in under 15 men and Nathan Woodrew (Renmark) was judged best in the under 12 mixed.grand final. ■ STAR: Waikerie’s Lachlan Seabrook in action during the A grade men’s hockey grand final against Loxton.

Berri’s division one tennis bid

Karpany claims AFL Masters Dog Tag award

■ From Page 28

■ KEN Karpany polled 37 votes to take out the Dog Tag award as the best and fairest player for the Riverland Superdogs in the 2012 AFL Masters Football season. Joint runners-up were Peter Hoffmann and Sam Ingerson with 27 votes. Trophy winners were announced at the club’s annual presentation at the Lyrup Club on Friday night with the Most Consistent award going to Shaun Harris, Best First Year Player to Dave Setchell, Coach’s Trophy to Ingerson and Tough Nut award to Darren Tieste. The president’s awards went to Karpany, Chris Thompson and Lance Gum for playing in all 12 games during the season. A highlight of the evening was retiring president Lance Gum being made a life member of the Superdogs after 10 years at the helm. And Lance made sure he went out in real style being the man behind the presentation function being delivered in such spectacular fashion. As one seasoned football man said, “this was the best night of its type I have ever attended in this region with the way the Lyrup Club was decorated and the way visuals for match videos and photos were used”. “It was further confirmation of how the Superdogs really do take their club seriously while having a lot of fun along the way”. Perhaps that is why the Dogs will continue to ‘train’ every Wednesday night at Lyrup right up until their football trip in November. After that they will get ready for 2013 with fortnightly pre-season training runs.

“Not just from Berri but as president of the Riverland Lawn Tennis Association as well, I want to see each town have a division one side to have that competition.” Mr Pinnington said more players are still required before a decision is made by Berri on nominating a team to play in division one. “We are still in the formation stage to see whether it is possible,” he said. With a large number of junior teams and division two and three teams, Mr Pinnington is hopeful that there will be enough players for Berri to nominate at the top level. If you are interested in playing or looking for more information, contact Garry Pinnington on 0417 813 656.

More glory for Rangers

■ CELEBRATE: Berri River Rangers won the Top Four Cup Challenge in Mildura on the weekend.

■ BERRI River Rangers continue to sweep everything before them in the 2012 soccer season and last Sunday added a victory in the inaugural Top Four Challenge tournament played in Mildura to its league championship and Top Four Cup successes in the Riverland. The competition involved the two top teams from both the Riverland and Sunraysia associations and in the senior men’s division, Berri defeated Sunraysia runner-up Irymple 4-1 in a semi-final and then the premier Mildura City 4-1 in the final.

Barmera United lost its semi final 1-0 in a keen contest against Mildura City. In another excellent performance, Renmark finished runner-up to Irymple in the women’s grade going down 3-2 after scores were locked 1-1 with about 10 minutes to play. In the women’s grade, Loxton and Renmark and in the under 16s Berri, all lost at the semi-final stage meaning thatin the end Sunraysia took out an overall trophy for the competition. Berri River Rangers still have a further challenge ahead of them

Goodes continues to impress ■ SIXTEEN-year-old Ryan Goodes (pictured) from the Riverland Boxing and Fitness Club in Loxton defeated another senior fighter when he won on points, 11-7, in an under 69 kilogram bout against Owen Hems at a tournament at the West Adelaide Football Club on the weekend. Goodes defeated Hems’ younger brother Peter in his previous fight and will now take on his most senior opponent, 30-year-old Roy Upton, who has won 23 career bouts, back at the West Adelaide Football Club this weekend. In recent months Goodes has now won three bouts on end in points decisions against opponents aged 23, 18 and 20 and has now been successful in 23 of his 43 fights so far. Against Owen Hems, Goodes experimented with new tactics including a switch to southpaw in the second round. “Yes, we tried some new moves,” Goodes’ father and coach Phillip said. “This is always risky but perhaps we have to take some risks to improve. “In this bout they ap-

peared to work well and the change to southpaw seemed to unsettle the opponent.” But changes in combination punching and other techniques are not the only alterations to Goodes’ training program. Track work at the local oval complements the time in the gym, while tapes of previous fights are being reviewed in the aim to improve. Phillip Goodes was also in the corner for boxers from an affiliate club at Roxby Downs when the coaches, former leading Riverland fighter Steven Rudd and another former local Craig Clark, were unable to make the tournament. “Stephen Finey boxed a top line opponent from

Victoria in Sayyid Qabeer Shah and only went down by one point 11-10,” Phillip said. “Finey is improving every time I see him and must be a chance for the elite middleweight title. “Mario Deionno also put in a very strong performance in only his third bout with the referee stopping the fight in the second round.” Also impressing Phillip was Cody McDonald from the Renmark Boxing Club who defeated Jayden Ballantyne in only his first bout. “He really did well and looks to have a future,” he said The Renmark club was, in fact, strongly represented at West Adelaide with a team of some five members competing. Phillip is still hoping to have promising trio Mathew Wilson and Mildura brothers Ashley and Liam Bobbin back in the ring in the near future. “They are real talents,” he said. “Mathew, in particular, is looking very impressive in training.”

Hockey clubs name best and fariest recipients

because this season the Riverland Association nominated its league champion to participate in the inaugural Association Challenge set up by the Football Federation of SA. This tournament will take the Rangers to Adelaide on September 29 and 30 and will also involve Masters, Collegiate, Western Border, Whyalla and Broken Hill teams. The prize to the winning side is substantial being an all expenses paid flight to Western Australia for a party of 18 to play in a South Australia versus Western Australia challenge.

Big crowd on hand for Mindarie-Halidon Cup ■ A RECORD crowd at the annual 2012 Mindarie-Halidon meeting on Sunday saw two horses with Riverland connections win events on the seven race program. ‘No Doubtfire’, raced by the Estate of George Clark at Loxton, won its second race in 18 starts when it took out race four over 1800 metres in impressive style. Trained at the Barry Dunn stables and ridden by Dom Tourneur, No Doubtfire’s previous win was at Penola in November last year but eye catching runs at Morphettville in recent months for a second and fourth placing served notice that another win was not far away. The Riverland’s second winner was ‘Break the Dry’ owned by a syndicate managed by Loxton’s Trevor Kernick and it also finished strongly to take out the final event over 1380 metres. The horse, trained by Dennis O’Leary and ridden by Jake Toeroek, has now also had two wins from 12 starts, with its first success at Gawler in 2011. The feature event on Sunday’s card was the $15,000 Mindarie Halidon Cup and while it only had six starters it was nevertheless a thrilling race with favourite ‘Drafted,’ trained by Mick Minervini and ridden by Shane

Waikerie riders love of horses pays off at competition level ■ WAIKERIE’S Kerry Micke took part in athletics, cross country events and swimming amongst all of the usual sporting activities in her high school years and since then has put her hand to hockey and lawn bowls. But from an early age it was riding horses at competitive level that was always going to be her favourite sport. “I have basically been riding horses from before I was born, with my mother, Lorraine, riding in the early days of her pregnancy,” Kerry explained. “After I arrived I was held on a pony as a baby then as a toddler on the lead before I started riding on my own at shows as a three-year-old. “From there I have progressed through junior competitions and pony club to senior events today. “My Mum has always been a great support as from her teenage years she has done very well in just about everything to do with horses.” Being involved in equestrian events means a lot of travelling and while most of the competitions Kerry attends are two to four hours away, including in the Adelaide Hills, she has also been as far away as Sydney, Lang Lang, Mildura

and Wentworth to compete. Now 28-years-old, Kerry has owned some seven horses during her career, although for various reasons, she has ridden many others one off or for short periods. Her current horse is Boongala Scarlett. Kerry has competed with considerable success over the years but in the past 12 months or so her career has really hit a high point with, on her own admission, a couple of unexpected surprises coming her way. A member of the Australian Stock Horse Society (ASH) from an early age, Kerry took up the option of also joining the Australian Stock Horse Ladies Association (ASHLA) from May last year. Being a member of both ASH and ASHLA and owning a registered stock horse makes members eligible for points in the National Points Score competition so when her ASHLA membership card arrived with appropriate entry forms, she completed and dispatched them. “I had forgotten about them so I was surprised to firstly receive an email saying that Boongala Scarlett and I had been successful in the Points Score,” she said.

“There were no other details but some time later a package arrived with a certificate and other prizes acknowledging that we had finished runners-up in the Show Jumping/Eventing Highpoint.” This was a great effort as Kerry had only joined ASHLA in May and points had begun being tallied in January, 2011. That was surprise number one but number two was still to come as advice, plus a trophy, was received from ASH/ South Australian Management Council that the Micke/Bongala Scarlett team had also finished runner-up for Hacking Highpoint for the year from July to June. “That was another big surprise as there are a lot of good horses involved,” Kerry said. Kerry and her mount have had good results at events like both the Superhorse Challenge and Horse Trials at Waikerie and the Wentworth Show this season but she has now set her sights high on the new Summer Royal Show in Adelaide early next year. “But it would also be great to go one better in those Highpoint awards,” she said. “And perhaps aim at a win as the ASHLA Highpoint Mare.”

Local tennis club plans to nominate division one team

BERRIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S RESURGENCE THE Berri View Lawn Tennis Club is likely to nominate a division one team for the coming season, despite withdrawing midway through the previous season. A number of keen juniors and experienced tennis players are likely to form a Berri division one team with the club stating if it nominates, the team will play a full season.

Berri View Lawn Tennis Club president Garry Pinnington said it is important to have a division one team so the juniors have something to aspire to. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are hopefully getting enough players around at the moment that we can actually put a team in, whether it is going to be competitive enough to take the

flag out, we are not worrying about that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we want to do at this stage is give our juniors and up and coming players a chance to have a crack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is really important that when you have got juniors coming through your club, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really got to have that goal to aspire

to the top level.â&#x20AC;? Mr Pinnington said having a division one team will also help to keep young players at the club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got top juniors and you really want them to aspire, that means theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to go to other clubs to fill that aspiration and you lose those players out of your club,â&#x20AC;? he said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;So it is really important that clubs do aspire to have a division one side otherwise you are not really trying to promote those juniors the way you should and also to strengthen the club.
