under the pump Funding for icon in doubt?

By BRAD PERRY

REASSURANCES are being sought from the State Government that it will continue funding to guarantee the iconic Humphrey Pump operates as a major attraction in the Riverland. Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone is seeking clarification from SA Water about the funding situation following concerns raised by volunteers involved

with the Cobdogla Irrigation and Steam Museum. “I want the State Government to continue their support through SA Water in funding so that we continue to have the Humphrey Pump as a working display,” Mr Whetstone said. “The clouding issue at the mo-

ment is about public liability, so that is the burning issue.” The historic working display has been out of action since a gas leak was detected in the pump in May and an investigation was launched. An SA Water spokesperson said the company is currently reviewing sponsorship arrangements.

“SA Water have provided up to approximately $50,000 in funding per year (to the museum),” they said. “This funding covers the maintenance of buildings and facilities, upkeep of the grounds, operational costs and insurance. “Staff from SA Water recently

met with the Cobdogla Steam Friends Society and the National Trust of SA (Barmera branch) to discuss funding options. “SA Water understands the importance of the Cobdogla museum to the Riverland region and will continue to work closely with these groups and other potential partners.” n Continued Page 2

Mr Whetstone said the world’s only operating humphrey pump, which runs four times a year, is a major drawcard for the region. “It’s really an iconic landmark for the museum, for Cobdogla and also for the region because it is the centrepiece, it is the drawcard that people go to the museum to

see working,” he said. With the Cobdogla water tower demolished on Friday the steam museum will be able to resume normal opening hours. “They are delighted to have the tower removed and it will allow them now to get on with opening up the museum and putting their passion back on display,” Mr Whetstone said.

Two local silos to close VITERRA will close silos at Paringa and Waikerie for the coming season due to a smaller crop being predicted. Viterra country operations manager Andrew Hannon told ABC radio that the silos will only be shut for the coming harvest. “In consultation with silo committees across the state, we’ve decided to not open those smaller sites and focus on the major sites and the surrounding sites to those regions,” he said.

Country Health’s realignment THE Riverland will fall under a new region as part of Country Health SA’s introduction of a new operational organisational structure from December 1. Aimed at improving rural health services in South Australia, the Riverland will be part of the Riverland Mallee Coorong rural region from the start of next month. Country Health SA Chief Executive, Adjunct Professor Belinda Moyes said the contemporary structure would also make CHSA consistent with other states and better aligned with the Medicare Local regions. “The new structure will consist of five separate rural regions rather than the current 10 Clusters,” she said. “The introduction of the new structure follows significant consultation with stakeholders which has helped us to decide the right structure for Country Health SA. “Patients can be assured

it seems a little “backwards” that it has taken so long for us to get to this stage. The system does come at a cost and given the response by ratepayers about rising council rates, some residents will disagree with its introduction. For many residents, it will be a whole new way of looking at your rubbish as a number of

there will be no disruption to our services as we transition to the new structure, and they will continue to receive the same high-level of care from their local CHSA services.

The new structure will consist of five separate rural regions.

As part of the new area, the Riverland will have Wayne Champion as a regional director. “The structure will include improved reporting lines, with each region headed by a regional director, who will each be supported by one or two regional operational managers and corporate services managers, depending on their size,” Ms

people are likely to have never thought about recycling in so much depth. I personally see the move to kerbside recycling as a way of the future. I know from experience living in metropolitan areas that it significantly cuts down on waste going to landfill. And while the waste will

Moyes said. “The new structure will also help to better manage duplication of services across each rural region and address any potential gaps in service. “South Australia, like the rest of Australia, has an ageing population and CHSA provides 35 per cent of all aged care beds in the country SA. “To help manage this, we’re introducing an Aged Care Sub-Acute and Community Health Director to focus on residential Aged Care Services in SA. “This role will also manage the relationship between CHSA and the Medicare Locals to help us transition to new primary health care service delivery models.” Over the next few weeks staff will work through a transitionary process to implement the new structure while business continues as normal.

be trucked out of the region in the short term, it is encouraging to hear each of the councils admitting that a regional waste facility may be a better long term option. It has been a drawn out process to finally get the three bin system after years of discussions but in the long run I see it as a positive move for the region.

$10 million in announcements delayed to seek further detail

Riverland Futures Fund recipients still waiting AN announcement on the remaining recipients of the $20 million Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund has been delayed and will be announced before the end of the year as some projects through to the final stage require further detail. During question time in Parliament last week, Regional Development Minister Gail Gago revealed that agencies have had to request further information for some projects despite the already lengthy process. “There was a process of ex-

pressions of interest that went out and they were then shortlisted and those applicants were then advised,” Minister Gago said.

“For some of them, further details was needed, and some agencies have gone back and requested some of that information, so those matters are in the

If the funds were not fully expended then further rounds would be put out. “Those applicants who had suitable proposals were then invited to work up the details to their grant proposals and to submit them. “That is what is being gone through at the moment.

process of being finalised.” Minister Gago said if all the funds were fully spent, there would be no further calls for grant proposals. “If the funds were not fully expended after this pro-

cess, then further rounds would be put out publicly,” she said. “Sometimes a proposal might be put forward and it might be agreed to, and then for some reason the recipient is not able to proceed with their grant and they might withdraw from that, and those moneys then become available back to the grant.” With about $10 million remaining in the fund, Minister Gago said applications “are still being considered in terms of how the remaining funds will be allocated”.

Safety on the road ROAD safety and laws were the focus of a two day course hosted by the South Australian Police at a local school this week. Road Safety Educator Senior Constable First Class Ian Gregor held a course at St Joseph’s School Renmark, where children were taught to obey the road rules through riding their bikes. “We started off with road safety and road laws in the classroom environment, explaining the need for them, even though they are quite young, to understand what the road rules are,” he said. “The bike riding session is basically an introduction to road safety but it is not actually teaching them skills it is more teaching them how to follow instructions

and also how to observe what’s happening around them.” Constable Gregor said educating about road safety around schools is extremely important. “I’ve been doing this close on 20 years now because prior to doing this work I was on the road and had to go to several crashes and to me it’s something that’s really important,” he said. St Joseph’s School Renmark teacher Greg Reeks said the lessons may give the children confidence to safely ride to school. “We thought it would be a very important part of the children’s development to learn to ride properly on the roads and to ride safely and to encourage children to ride their bikes to school,” he said.

MEMBER for Chaffey Tim Whetstone has been awarded a Parliamentary secretary role as part of the South Australian Liberal Party Cabinet reshuffle announced on Tuesday. Mr Whetstone was appointed to the Liberal Party Shadow Cabinet, taking on the Shadow Parliamentary Secretary portfolios of Water Security, the River Murray and Environment and Conservation. “I’m quite excited that being given this role will allow me to represent Chaffey in a bigger capacity,” Mr Whetstone told the Riverland Weekly. “The leadership team have seen my worth on representing the region through River Murray and en-

vironmental issues and that’s my strength that I bring to Parliament. “Rather than influence policies and decision making within the party, I’ll be there in a greater capacity to write policies and also have a bigger responsibility to reflect the region’s centrepiece and that is the river and the environment.” Part of the new role focuses on water reform in the Murray Darling Basin, which Mr Whetstone said is very important to the electorate of Chaffey. “The Liberal Party will pursue a fair and balanced Basin Plan that delivers a healthy river system and water security for food producers and river communities,” he said.

“We will also continue to hold the Weatherill Labor Government accountable for its inconsistencies, its diluted demands and political exploitation of water reform. “Conservation of our natural environment, and sustainable management of natural resources, is also a passion of mine and of critical importance to the future of South Australia. “Chaffey features a wealth of natural areas and environmental assets, including two RAMSAR-listed wetlands, and our community values them very highly.” Member for Stuart, which covers the Mid Murray area, Dan van Holst Pellekaan was promoted to mining, police and prisons portfolios.

High applications for Christmas appeal ORGANISERS of this year’s Riverland Christmas Appeal are predicting another busy festive period with applications for assistance already flowing in. Riverland Christmas Appeal co-ordinator Cheryle Taylor (pictured) said she expects the volunteers to pack a similar number to the 550 hampers given out last year. “With the amount of people coming in for applications, I’ve got a feeling

it could be the same, if not worse, than last year with the businesses up here that have been closing down,” she said. “We normally do get

a lot of support from the Riverland and there is quite a bit of support that comes from Adelaide and other places too.” Mrs Taylor said more donations are required to keep up with demand with Christmas just around the corner. She said offering hampers to those who need it is very rewarding. “The ones that are doing it tough, at least they are going to have something for

Christmas,” she said. “If it comes from us it is only a small thing but it is big in their eyes.” Meanwhile, the Ulysses Club Inc. Mallee Branch will host the annual Riverland Christmas Appeal Tucker and Toy Run on December 2. Donations for the Riverland Christmas Appeal can be made to various businesses across the region, see page 18 for more details.

Creative writers take on 50,000 word challenge to write a novel during November A GROUP of enthusiastic Riverland creative writers are participating in an ambitious challenge this month to write a 50,000 word novel. As part of an international initiative helping aspiring writers known as NaNoWriMo, members of the Riverland Creative Writing Group have decided to accept the challenge, which requires an average of more than 1500 words per day. The group, which reformed a few months ago, has embraced the idea with facilitator Alysha Herrmann describing the project as a fun challenge. “My background is as a playwright, I write plays and poems, the whole novel writing thing is a totally different style, so quite challenging for me,” she said. “What I’m doing is using it as an opportunity to

■ WRITERS: (From left) James O’Keefe, Alysha Herrmann and Karl Raams are all participating. do some groundwork for a play I’m actually working on, which is for children. “I think it’s like with anything you want to do, you have to make time and you have to be disciplined about it.” The writing group meets in Berri weekly and there is a number of participants taking part in the 50,000 word novel project.

One of those is Monash’s James O’Keefe, who has participated in the annual event a number of times in the past. However, Mr O’Keefe said juggling family and working life with trying to write a novel in a short space of time has been tough but he has aspirations to one day publish his own book.

“It’s expression of freedom and one day I want to get some stuff published, I’ve had one short story published before but I’d like to get a novel done,” he said. Fellow participant from Monash, Karl Raams, has always enjoyed writing but is using the project and group to pursue his passion for it. “I decided to get involved after I heard about it because I enjoyed writing at high school, I enjoy putting words together but I had just never found any time or motivation for doing it before,” he said. “I joined the group in hope to help motivate myself to keep doing it each week.” For more information about the Riverland Creative Writing Group, contact Alysha on 041 626 7391.

Prepare for next drought A LEADING rural counsellor believes “the next drought is just around the corner” and it may determine the future for a number of Riverland and Mallee farmers with mounting debt. Rural Business Support general manager Kay Matthias said the future of the family farm in the region will be determined in the coming years and if farmers do not adapt to current practices, then they may be forced out of the industry. “We see businesses continuing to recover from the drought, however, many of them had their levels of debt go so high that it’s going to take quite some years for them to recover,” she said. “We’ve seen a lot of

people exit the industry, particularly in this area, and I think the future of the family farm is at a very important point in its evolvement. “I think the small family farm has got to really rationalise, has really got to start to accept that they

made it quite clear there will be no drought relief as we’ve known it in the past, however, governments change and that may change but certainly the current government has said there will be no more drought relief,” she said. “That just reinforces

The government has made it quite clear there will be no drought relief. must have best practice management just to be able to survive and compete in a market driven world.” Ms Matthias said the outlook for farming is very positive but those in the industry must be weary that there will be no more drought assistance. “The government has

the need for farmers tto be really conscious of the need to be viable and to adopt good management practices, good technologies and all of those things that are out there. “They really have to be serious about farming in a difficult environment without government support.”

It is inevitable that some farmers will leave the industry in the near future, according to Ms Matthias. “There are great opportunities but we must be mindful that the next drought is just around the corner and that we are living in a climate variability world now where droughts will be the norm,” she said. “There will defiit nitely be some (farmers) go, there will be some that are just not viable enough or their debt level is too high for them to survive another drought without any support. “We’ve been case managing clients in the Riverland to face a world and farming without drought assistance.”

WITNESS THE IMPOSSIBLE

Single homeless site hard to police? THE Berri Barmera Council plans to meet with local ministers and key stakeholders despite doubts over plans to nominate a specific area for homeless people in the district. The old Rodeo Grounds near the Berri Bridge had previously been raised as a potential area for homeless people to use as a camping area but Berri Barmera

Council chief executive officer David Beaton said he is unsure whether the idea put forward will be feasible. “We’ve got Martin’s Bend as a designated camping area,” he said. “So to try and then make another area...it just creates another site that we have to look after and police.” Mr Beaton said council

plans to hold a meeting to discuss the concept. “Before you try and make any rules and regulations, you actually need to understand from the homeless and the people that serve them, what exactly is the use or abuse of an area and what sort of structure you can put in there to either have people there or move them on,” he said.

“It is just a matter of if we are going to have a designated area that we can look after and maintain it and make sure it is safe for people. “I’m not sure we necessarily want to create another area but there is people using it, so by the same token we just need to understand from the people that look after them, what’s going on.”

SOLAR NEWS Making Solar Paperwork Easy. Supply and ďŹ tment of a Solar Power system is quite involved from a paperwork perspective. Lodgement of Small Embedded Generator Approvals, STC (Rebate) Transfer forms and the like with relevant power authorities are just some of many approvals required to have your Solar Power System installed There is some real disparity between Solar Companies when it comes to paperwork and approvals processing. Some of the Solar Companies in the marketplace at present are focused on delivering cheap systems and sometimes leave the ETSA (now known as “SA Power Networksâ€?) meter ďŹ tment and Feed In Tariff Declaration up to the client to organise. When choosing a Solar Installation company, ask questions related to a “complete serviceâ€? offering. If your solar company offers a complete service, they will undertake the process to submit an SA Power Networks declarations and import-export meter supply and ďŹ tment approval The SA Power Networks website and associated documentation makes reference to both of these approvals being a “regulatory requirementâ€? in order to connect your Solar Power System to the Grid with full compliance.

BERRI Barmera Council is hoping to divert up to 60 per cent of what currently goes to landfill in the district with the new kerbside recycling system to begin in January. Green waste collected through the system is going to be used to rehabilitate the Monash landfill, according to chief executive officer David Beaton. “From January next year we’ll have the three bin system in town and two bin system for people outside of town,� he said. “That will give people a chance to get rid of their rubbish before our dump changes to a waste transfer station, so people will still be able to dump their waste but they won’t necessarily be able to do it exactly as it was done before. “We’re hopeful we’ll be able to lose between 50 to 60 per cent of what currently goes to landfill to go into the green waste and the recycling. “The green waste we are going to be able to use to rehabilitate the Monash landfill to help cap that and the recycling we take out will be able to be processed and reused.� Mr Beaton said council is offering a $20 concession to pensioners and self funded retirees as part of the bin roll out, which he believes is the only discount of its type in South Australia. “A lot of people have said they’ve recycled in other places that they have lived in and are looking forward to it coming to the Riverland,� he said. The construction of a regional waste facility is also an option to be discussed in the future, according to Mr Beaton. “That’s something the councils may have a look at in the future but all the councils are focused on making sure we implement the three bin system and get that right first before we try and do anything else.�

Setting the pace with bin trial THE Loxton Waikerie Council was the first in the Riverland to implement a kerbside recycling bin trial, a move which it believes will be of major benefit to the roll out of the system in January. Loxton Waikerie Council development and community services manager Stephen Bateman said the trial, which has run for over 12 months, has provided some interesting details. “We know the weights of the bins, we know on average it’s 8.23 kilograms in a residual waste bin, it’s about 12.7 kilos in the recycling bin and in the green waste it’s about 13 to 16 kilos a fortnight,� he said. “When you start taking the green waste and the recyclables together, we start putting that with the actual kilograms and you are putting up nearly 27 to 30 kilos that is being diverted from landfill. “It shows you the diversion rate we are looking at is obtainable and we can just about better it.� Mr Bateman said there has been “the odd one or two� residents telling council they object to the new three bin system when it rolls out next month. “Obviously you are going to have the odd one or two come in and say you shouldn’t do it but we find when we explain to them the reasons we are doing it, they start to understand,� he said. Loxton Waikerie Council may support a regional waste facility being constructed in the Riverland in the future, according to Mr Bateman. “We’ve got no option at the moment but to transport and dispose of all of our waste in Adelaide because there is no regional facility,� Mr Bateman said. “I think once the waste really starts to take hold, I think commonsense may prevail where people have really got to start looking at what is the cost of putting in a regional landfill and what is the benefits of that are going to be. “When they start putting that together they will then have a really good idea of the actual cost, not what we think it is going to be.�

â–  Renmark Paringa Council infrastructure services director Paul Day with one of the new bins for the district.

Goal to divert 65 per cent of waste RESIDENTS in the Renmark Paringa Council area will be the first to receive their new waste bins throughout November. Council infrastructure services director Paul Day said sorting rubbish will limit the impact on the environment, save costs associated with landfill disposal and make a positive contribution to a sustainable future. “To make it easy for our residents, the bin lids will clearly state what can and cannot go into them,� Mr Day said. “We’re relying on our residents to sort their waste into the correct bins. “It only takes a small amount of contamination in a load of recyclables for it to be dumped into landfill, which is expensive and wasteful. “If we have any contamination of a recyclable bin, for example, that has to go to landfill, we lose all of those recyclables, it costs everyone more money and doesn’t improve the environment.� Mr Day said council is aiming to divert 65 per cent of its waste from being disposed to landfill with the introduction of the new waste collection bins. “Most councils when they first start it is probably around the 45 to 50 per cent but with really good education, we are hoping to push that up to at least 65 per cent out of the waste stream,� he said. “With the cost of taking solid waste to landfill now increasing every year, the more we can take out of the waste stream, the cheaper it is going to be eventually for everyone.� Mr Day said a regional landfill site will always be an option in the long term. “Council still believes there are cheaper and more efficient ways of getting rid of our waste and whether that possibly is a regional landfill again, I think we will definitely be looking at that into the future,� he said. “Particularly with the cost of the introduction of the carbon tax and the increase of fuel every year, I think we will be able to get the figures to show that going with a regional landfill or at least, individual landfills down the track, is possibly going to save everyone money.�

THE Riverland will welcome 30 cars from the glory days of Bathurst as part of the inaugural Aussie Muscle Car Run on Wednesday. Raising funds for the Leukaemia Foundation’s new $9.5 million regional patient village, the run will leave Adelaide on Monday and travel 2747 kilometres over seven days. Aussie Muscle Car Run chairman Kevin May said locals will be able to see the classic cars and meet drivers when they arrive in Renmark. Those involved in the run will also be able to test their driving skills in a closed road circuit on Paringa Road from 11.30am to 3.30pm, with locals encouraged to come along and watch. “We thought we’d come up to the Riverland because we’ve got interstate visitors and it’s a lovely sight up there,� Mr May told the Riverland Weekly. Mr May said there will be a variety of cars featuring in the run including American Muscle cars from 1965 to 1978 such as Camaros, Mustangs and Corvettes. “There will be some interesting cars, interesting characters and some history about the cars, where they came from and who owned them,� he said.

Children donate to fostercare

Local builders’ top awards

DURING the recent National Fostercare Week, children from the Riverland Central Christian Church, in Glossop, decided to help Riverland children in fostercare and their carers. The group of children decided to make up carepacks for kids in fostercare. They asked the rest of the church to help and were able to make up 20 packs filled with items like toys, photo frames, toiletries, socks and letters of encouragement from the church. On top of the generous packs, the Riverland Central Christian Church then added a $50 gift voucher to

Lucy Centofanti and Tenille Chartres, representing ac.care, received the care packs from the church on behalf of the foster children and carers. Riverland Central Christian Church pastor Joella Crossfield said providing aid to the less fortunate was a very rewarding experience. ”We just really wanted to show love to children, who for whatever reason, spend time in fostercare, and also to honour those wonderful people who become foster carers to love and care for these children,” she said.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Monash comes alive

Photo competition

WOW, what a fantastic night of laughs and talent at the Monash Shindig. Monash certainly has some big name artists, just to name a few Cher, Charlie Pride, Johnny Cash and story time with the Old Fella. Also the night was made up with excellent local talent. The event was action packed and the meal was delightful. Congratulations to all of you who made it a very worthwhile night of entertainment. Job well done.

THE Berri and Barmera Public Libraries, as part of the National Year of Reading, are holding a photographic competition throughout the month of November. The Read it! Snap it! Photographic Competition opened on November 1 and will close on Friday, November 30. To enter, entrants must take a photo of themselves or a friend reading a Berri or Barmera Library book and bring the printed photo in to the library with their entry form. Participants will need to visit either Berri or Barmera Library to collect an entry form. The competition is open to children and adults with the winning adult receiving a Kindle eBook Reader and the Children’s division prize winner to receive a Gear 2Go eBook reader. Entry is free but you must be a Berri or Barmera Library member (it’s free to join your local library!). Full details of the competition are available with entry forms from each library.

Janet Armstrong, Berri.

Who is left to pay off the burgeoning burden? IT’S a funny world! How will our Treasurer achieve his promised surplus after false promises and years of spending borrowed money with no accountability as to how we benefit? We let foreign countries and companies buy and control our strategic wealth creating assets then wonder why government tax revenue is down. Join the dots – profits now go off shore that were once reinvested here. Our tax laws favour foreign companies with 10 per cent withholding tax on profits. Who is left to pay off our burgeoning debt? Answer: Australian businesses who have taken the initiative to start and build businesses and not ask for handouts. In the meantime it is the foreign interests laughing all the way to our bank. Lynne Wilkinson, Ausbuy CEO.

Jacque Zagotsis, Public Services Library Technician.

Loveday camp history I HAVE been researching the history of the Loveday Internment camps and I found an information document written by Lt Col ET Dean. The document tells me that it is 70 years since Col Dean started talks with the Barmera Co-op Packing Union. He asked them whether they would be prepared to start taking fruit from the Loveday Internment Camp gardens to be processed into cans to be distributed to other army, navy and air bases throughout Australia. The Barmera Co-op rejected this offer.

Have your say about the issues that affect you. Col Dean then approached the Berri Co-op Packing Union (which later became the Berri Co-op) and this offer was received with open arms. The Co-op proessed the tomatoes for some time and then later the local packing sheds drew up a plan to join forces and start a new processing plant for tomatoes, citrus and stone fruits into the juice market. In that same year, tomatoes grown in the Loveday camp gardens were processed as juice and then distributed. Other things were also produced in cans that were surplus to the local camp’s needs. Carrots, beetroot and other vegetables were canned fresh, not juiced, ready to be eaten. At war’s end, the Co-ops had come to an agreement to form a new company which was named Berri Fruit Juices. So it was because of Col Dean that the now well known brand was started. Unfortunately this business has now been taken over by a multinational company. I feel that we must pay tribute to Col Dean, who had such a great foresight for our district all those years ago. Also we are thankful this history was documented in the 1940s, so it is preserved for future generations. We, at the Barmera National Trust, want to be able to put our history on show for all to see, so it is not hidden in someone’s back room or shed. Over the past 12 months we have received a large amount of photos and documents on the Loveday Internment Camp and it gives us the will to be able to carry on collecting and preserving our history for future generations. Max Scholz, Barmera.

Murray Man success I would like to express my gratitude to the organisers of the Murray Man Triathlon being the Adelaide Triathlon Club and all of their volunteers. In trying hot and windy conditions, the Murray Man Triathlon Australian Age Group Long Course Championships was held at Barmera on Sunday. What an awesome venue and event. It had great spectator support which was appreciated. Lake Bonney is a fantastic swim course; clean and safe, as was the entire cycle and run course. Special thanks to Malcolm Otto, the race director - he’s here, he’s there, he’s everywhere - what a superb job. A big, big thank you to the Berri Barmera Council and the whole team for the entire weekend, their attention to detail was brilliant. Thanks to Pete Weston who volunteered his time on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The Thomas family; and the Lake Bonney Yacht Club, what a beautiful site for a triathlon.

To the Lions Club - can they work; and to all of the local Riverland volunteers, you are amazing, thank you. A highlight on the run were some of the Barmera residents standing out with their hoses showering the runners in the heat, it helped enormously. It was tough but a great experience. Thank you for making it happen. Ruth Strout, Barmera.

Riverland proud IT is fantastic to see the Riverland uniting for events like the Riverland Field Days, the Riverland Balloon Fiesta, the Riverland Wine and Food Festival and last weekend, the national Murray Man Triathlon. These events have benefits for multiple towns and showcase our district, encouraging return visitors. We have a fabulous area and should all be proud Riverlanders. Chris Thomas, Barmera.

GARDENING WITH Andrew Walladge: Back to basics

I

HAVE long advised customers to use drought tolerant, frost hardy and long living plants to form the framework of a garden. This is especially applicable to gardeners working with ‘blank canvases’ or even for older gardens having a major makeover. Part of a framework could include screens for privacy or hiding utility areas. Most men like an area somewhere to deposit treasures for later possible use. These usually look better not seen! Other parts of a framework would include shelter from our sometimes savage south west winds bringing a change in weather. Also shade is an important element of any

garden in the Riverland and Mallee. It is these parts of a garden that truly makes a garden a pleasant place to be. The following are some good basic tough plants that require virtually no maintenance while still providing a vital role in the garden. For screening plants, Acacia iteaphylla Flinders Range wattle is hard to beat. Growing to three to four metres it has grey green leaves and wattle yellow flowers during autumn and winter. Atriplex nummularia old man salt bush is another bulletproof plant at two to three metres and grows almost anywhere. Many of the Callistemon or bottlebrushes do

■ GREAT OPTION: The Eucalyptus Leucoxylon Megalocarpa is a top variety to provide shade and shelter. Photo: ADA WALLADGE very well at screening, provided they receive at least some watering. Grevillea olivacea olive leaved Grevillea grows to two to three metres and has red, orange and yellow flowering forms but does need reasonable drainage. Acacia salicina, Eucalyptus leucoxylon megalo-

carpa and Eucalyptus salubris are all great shade and shelter trees that grow to around 10 metres. There are of course plenty of others to choose from, but the message is simple; plant large trees and shrubs for the long term that won’t break your budget keeping them healthy.

CHARLIE’S SPORTS GOSS WITH GRAHAM CHARLTON

Local weightlifters dominate ■ THE Drug Free SA Powerlifting Association has closed its 2012 season with a competition at its Riverland headquarters at the Vitality Health Club in Berri. It plans to open its 2013 program in March next year with the annual BennettGraham Memorial Challenge to return at that venue. Seventeen state records were set at the recent competition, including four to Rose Gow and three to Andrew Norris, who were the two Riverland lifters in the event. Gow, with a body weight of 53.5 kilograms, lifted 72.5kg in the squat, 50kg in the bench press and 130kg in the deadlift in the M3 age group. For Norris with a body weight of 110.2 kilograms, it went 145kg in the squat, 155kg in the bench press and 205kg in the deadlift in Open class. Adelaide members Chris Powell (four records), Damien Powell (four), Sean Simpson and Dave Thomas (one) took part in the competition.

Pursch’s seven wicket haul ■ MORGAN and Perponda played out a thrilling contest last Saturday in Mid Murray cricket with Morgan setting a modest target of 99 and the competition’s newcomers failing to reach the total by just one run. Max Baddack topscored for Morgan with 27 with Jason Ashenden snared four wickets for Perponda which in its innings was best served by consistent Josh Rudiger with 47. For Morgan, however, the destroyer was Tony Pursch with 7 for 23. In the other game, Blanchtown Swan Reach forfeited to Waikerie Gold.

Walter’s classy century ■ A CENTURY from Loxton batsman Brad Walter propelled his team to a huge score of 9 declared for 293 against Waikerie-Ramco in Riverland A grade cricket on the weekend. Walter drove his way to 143 with help from Josh Deren, 34, and Michael Gutsche, 27. Meanwhile, Renmark is in the box seat against Berri after Brett Victor picked up five wickets to restrict the Demons to 126. Dan Reynolds hit 57 for Berri, while Dale Lindner remains unbeaten on 49 with the Royals at 3/114 in reply. In the B grade, a half century from Rory Hoile led Loxton to a win over Berri, 5/177 to 107. A century from Waikerie-Ramco’s Adam Borgas was not enough to get his team over the line against Loxton North, while Wunkar, 6/244, defeated Monash 182 and Cobdogla cruised to a nine wicket win over Barmera Hotel, 1/118 to 101.

Golf day Foodbank fundraiser ■ AN Ambrose Golf Day at the Barmera Club on Friday, November 16, is being held as a Foodbank fundraiser. The ‘Hit for Hunger’ event starts at 11.30am and is open to teams of four, with entry $30 per player. Fun prizes and a barbecue lunch are on the program with the day to conclude with presentations and a yabby race. Teams can be registered with Peter Smith on 0400 459 469 or Neville McPherson on 0408 883 345.

Murray Man triathlon in Barmera hailed a major success despite soaring temperatures

Hot under the collar ■ CONDITIONS for more than 360 entrants in last Sunday’s Murray Man triathlons at Lake Bonney were less than ideal but there has been glowing reports on the success of the event with Triathlon Australia officials full of praise for the organisation and the picturesque, safe course. Apparently nearly a tonne of ice was used to keep the athletes cool while the competitors also appreciated the action of those members of the community who turned their garden hoses on them as the passed by. As mentioned last week, Jacob Otto, Ruth Strout, Jackie Crofton, Corina Sims and Tim French were

amongst the Riverland entrants in either the full or half Murray Man events. I now also find that former Loxton hockey player and current physiotherapist for the South Australian Hotshots, Tim Bass, started in the long course in the 30 to 44 years male division and finished 22nd and 135th overall and was joined by former Berri footballer Brian Gates in the 35 to 39 years division, who finished 28th and 135th. Otto blitzed the field in the Half Murray Man to take out the 16 to 17 years division and win the male event overall. Stout finished third in her age

group and 154th overall, while Crofton also won her age group and was 76th overall. French finished eighth and 44th overall in the 25 to 29 years division. In an outstanding performance, Sims took out her age group and ended up 45th overall in the shorter event in her first attempt, a day after her daughter Megan finished first female and third overall in the ‘Come And Try’ triathlon. The outright winner of the male race in record time was Adelaide’s Matty White, who is a dual winner of the Adelaide Marathon and earlier this year won the Pro

Australian Duathlon title. Sunday’s events at Barmera incorporated the Australian Age Group Long Course Championships.

Former locals at Australian hockey champs ■ THE South Australian Southern Suns in the women’s competition and Hotshots in the men’s competition failed to reach the finals of their respective Australian Hockey League Championships in Perth last week. However, both continued to confirm that there has been considerable progress made by the state at this level in the past few years. The Southern Suns, with former Berri juniors Karri McMahon, Brooke Buchecker and Georgie Parker in the line-up, were the defending champions in Perth and without a costly 2-1 loss to lowly Northern Territory Pearls, would have likely reached the major round again. At the end of the seven game round robin, the Suns had 10 points, behind Queensland Scorchers, 18, Western Australia Diamonds, 16, Victoria Vipers and New South Wales Arrows, both with 11. SA’s victories were a 4-2 win in the opening game against Canberra Strikers, with two goals from Buchecker, against finalist New South Wales 1-0, Tasmanian Demons 3-0, while the Suns drew 1-1 with another top four team, Victoria. Each of its other losses were by a narrow margin, 2-1 against Western Australia and 1-0 against Queensland. In the end the Southern Suns finished sixth overall, winning

■ STAR: Riverland’s Karri McMahon has been playing for the Southern Suns. 7-1 against Tasmania and going down 2-1 to Canberra in the play-offs for final positions. Also the battle for the title contained some surprises. In the semi-finals, NSW defeated the top team Queensland 2-1 and Victoria eliminated second ranked WA 2-1. Then In the grand final, the Vics secured the championship with a 5-1 win over the Arrows. I spoke to Karri McMahon on Monday as she travelled home to Berri for a break. She agreed that the loss to NT had been costly. “I missed the second half of the game with concussion,” she said. “But generally we were pleased with our performance in the championships. “We had eight newcomers in the team this year but as a group remained very competitive.” McMahon was also full of praise for the efforts of her roommate Buchecker. Meanwhile, having just

■ BIG scores continued in round two of senior softball on Saturday with Cobdogla Blue taking no prisoners against club mates Gold 24-2, Loxton A beating Lyrup 12-0 and in a competitive clash Berri 23 defeating Loxton B, 10. Loxton A has been widely tipped as the 2012-13 premiership favourite but indications already are that spirited opposition will come from teams like Cobdogla Blue and Berri. Amongst players to stand out in Saturday’s matches were Tracy Chamberlain (Cobdogla Blue), Bridget Nolan (Cobdogla Gold), Tyler Flood (Loxton A), Ryan Thiele (Lyrup), Kris Taylor (Berri) and Jessica Voigt (Loxton B). There was a terrific contest in C grade with Loxton Green (Jackson Waechter) just edging out Loxton Blue 19-18, while in

played for the Hockeyroos for the first time, McMahon still sees her career on fast track. She has another full AIS Scholarship for the coming year and has been named in the senior Hockeyroos’ squad for 2013. Georgie Parker also remains in that group. McMahon will return to Perth on November 16 in time to play in the Super Series Hockey Nines that involves two Australian teams ,the Hockeyroos and Jillaroos, plus another from Malaysia. “As I am under 21, I will be in the Jillaroos team,” she said. “But with three Olympians as teammates we should be competitive.” Also on the agenda for McMahon is the possibility of a couple of test matches against Britain followed by the Australian Youth Olympics in Sydney in mid January. As far as the AHL men’s championships were concerned, two former Riverland players Tom Wickham and Tyson Schubert were in the Hotshots line-up. Schubert is the son of former Loxton Tigers’ ruckman Graham ‘Rusty’ Schubert. SA finished on nine points after the round robin preliminaries behind Queensland Blades 16, WA Thundersticks, NSW Waratahs 15, Victoria Vikings 13 and Tasmania Tigers 11.

The men’s team defeated Canberra Lakers 4-1, NT Stingers 3-0 and WA 3-0 but lost to NSW 5-1, Victoria 5-2, Tasmania 5-1 and Queensland 3-1. Grant Schubert, to be an inaugural inductee into the Riverland Legends of Sport, represented the WA Thundersticks in the tournament but did not play against the Hotshots. In the playoffs for final placings, SA lost to Canberra 3-2 and to Tasmania 4-1 but the finals went more according to form than those of the women’s section. In the semi-finals, Queensland defeated Victoria and WA 3-0 and NSW 3-1 before the Blades won the title after a closely fought clash with WA, 3-2. I also spoke to Grant Schubert in Perth earlier this week and found that a niggling calf problem after the first three matches of the AHL Championships eventually caused him to miss the final against Queensland. “It was not too bad but after trying it out in the semi-final I decided not to risk it further,” he said. Grant is still to decide whether he will be able to get to Berri for his induction as a Riverland Legend of Sport. A potential career in hockey broadcasting may see him involved with the Super Nines Series in Perth at that time.

Dinghy championships well and truly on Riverland sporting calendar ■ THE annual Riverland Dinghy Championships have really established a prominence on the local sporting calendar. Matt Thur and Reece Glazbrook converted consistency and a professional approach into a first 30hp Super Sports Class title by 10 points over reigning champion Jason Gordon and that was not the only hotly contested division. In the 30hp Rookies, it also went right down to the wire. Matt Lang and Callum Benda grabbed the title by five points from Gary O’Ciepa and Corey Lambert with 57/52. It could have been different as the O’Ciepa boat, plagued by some bad luck during the previ-

ous rounds, finished second by less than a minute behind Michael Preen and Jason Brown in the final round, the Hunchee Run, with Lang and Benda not gaining many points from the race after experiencing fuel issues. That indeed was a photo finish as adding to the intrigue it was the first race that Preen and Brown had completed in the series. In the big field of the 30hp Super Standards, the champions were Shane Palat and Colby Townsend, Matt Schwartzkopff and Sam Kenyon in 30hp Standards, John Chigros and Jody Cole in 300cc Modifieds and Tyler and Robert Bleasby in 25hp Standards.

Depending on what happens with the AFL findings, we thought let’s go back in an open spectrum again through all of our state league scouts ~ Crows’ David Noble.

The number of state records broken by local lifter Rose Gow at an event recently.

Loxton on the improve

Record breaker

■ LOCAL team ‘Hit It’ involving driver Damien Philp, observer Chris Philp and skiers Saxton Brown and Lance Muus finished second in the Eight Litre Class in the

Kingston Estates Wines Berri 90 ski race held at Martin’s Bend on Sunday. The dominant boat over the two day event was Mark Cranny’s ‘Hell-

razor’ with Damien Matthews observing and dual world champion Peter Procter and Jason Walmsley on the skis. The Dandenong team took out the May-

■ THE introduction of new pitcher Brenton Harvey onto the mound by Loxton saw a lone effort the basis of an improved performance by his team in Friday night’s round of baseball. Harvey produced 12 strike outs to keep a tight rein on the Berri White batters, while on the other hand the Warriors’ Ash Rogers could not contain the hitting of the likes of Danny Fielke and Mark Neumann. After leading 8-0 at the bottom of the third innings, Loxton went on to win 10-1. In other matches, Renmark Blue defeated Lyrup 6-2 and Berri Blue was far too strong for an inexperienced Renmark 28-0.

hem Dash For Cash from Lock 4 to Lyrup on Saturday, then followed up by smashing the Berri 90 Ski Classic Super Class record by some two minutes on Sunday.

Greenfield victorious at Waikerie

Volunteers nominated for award ■ FIVE nominations have been received for the annual 5RM–Berri Juices Steve McFarlane Contribution to Sport award to be presented at the Riverland Sportsperson of the Year dinner at the Berri Resort Hotel on Friday, November 23. This award was introduced in 1979 with the first recipient being netball stalwart Marg Lambert and it is designed to acknowledge the work, sometimes behind the scenes, of volunteers involved in local sport. Those to be considered by judges this year are: Jason Redemski Although only 19 years old, Jason has already made an outstanding contribution to the Waikerie Hockey club and to the sport overall. He has coached at club

and zone level, umpired to senior and finals standard, served on committees and has volunteered for turf maintenance, working bees and social events. Tim Paine Tim takes time out from his business in Adelaide to spend up to four months of the year at a holiday shack in Morgan where he puts in an enormous amount of time with the local Dirt Kart club. He manages the busy canteen, was secretary in 2011-12 and is now the president for 2013 but he has also made huge financial contributions to the club by way of providing earth moving machinery, a multi-purpose building and canteen equipment. Jane Woolston Jane has provided a contribution to the Berri Football club during the past five

years over a much wider scope than you would normally associate with her position as club secretary. Apart from administrative issues, Jane coordinates club functions, organises catering, works in the kitchen and canteen, is team manager of the under 11 team, attends trainings and represents the Demons as the secretary of the Riverland Junior Football League. Rex Fielke Rex is well known for his work for football over many years, including radio, television and newspaper broadcasting or reporting on football. However, again over a long period he has also served as a committee member and official with the Loxton Football Club and in a similar capacity with the Loxton

Bowling Club, including as an event organiser. He has been a past patron and dedicated contributor to the Riverland Football League, of which he is a life member, including playing a major role in its Centenary arrangements. Jane McFarlane Jane was Initially with the Berri District Youth club from 1975 to 1985 as a committee member, nationally accredited coach and judge. Since rejoining in 2008 she has been the focal point for recruitment, coaching, sponsorship, media and grant applications. Jane coaches up to nine sessions per week, coordinates competitions and prepares gymnastic displays and was behind the incorporation of Kindergym into the club’s program this year.

Barmera shakes up bowls ladder with win over last season’s grand finalist Waikerie ■ NORMALLY when we have an upset in our sport I like to drag out the old line “call in the stewards�. But after Barmera defeated last season’s grand finalist Waikerie 72-65 at Waikerie in division one men’s pennant bowls on Saturday, seven days after it went down by 92 shots 137-45 to Berri, there would be no point in summoning any stewards even if they existed. Congratulations to Barmera on getting up off the mat so quickly after that belting. Recognising the threat, Waikerie threw everything at the visitors to hit the lead well into the contest but victories in three rinks, John Morena 22-20 over Wayne Collins, David Mills 19-12 from Roger Davies and Phil Ashton 17-15 against Brian Burnett, gave Barmera the unexpected win. And who said lightning cannot strike in the same place twice? At Renmark RSL the home side defeated one of the ladder leaders Loxton by one shot, 82-81, after a similar result, 81 to 80, when it hosted neighbour Renmark only a week earlier. The Renmark RSL side has certainly reacted since

it became the first victims of the new club in first division, Loxton RSL, in the third round. In Saturday’s clash, rinks were shared but David Bollenhagen’s win over Peter Kimber 27-14 was crucial in the end result. In the round’s third game did we see a sleeping giant start to stir when Renmark 85, on the back of Chris Karantonis defeating Tim Lehmann 26-9, won against Loxton RSL, 58, on the RSL greens? In other men’s results from the weekend, Riverland retained the Carbis Shield in the first division bowlers’ annual clash with Sunraysia held at Loxton but lost the Walsh Shield against the same opponent at Irymple. Riverland won the Carbis clash 188 to128 shots with success in six of the eight rinks and Mark Kubank heading the top group for the day, while in the game at Irymple, Sunraysia won 207 to 186. Des Button’s team was the best of the Riverland’s four winning rinks. Meanwhile, after the South Australian RSL State team played against a Riverland side at Loxton RSL a fortnight ago going down by only two shots in a keen

contest, the visitors issued an invitation to any returned service or ex-service members from this region to join their organisation. The party of over 30 that came to Loxton was from the city, Murray Bridge and other country areas but organisers are keen to make their association bigger and better. This year’s program involves several events at clubs around Adelaide, trips to the South East, Eyre Peninsula and other country areas, and culminates in the annual National Championship Week to be held at the Waverley Club in Melbourne where all states vie for the title. Over the past three years the championships have been held in Tasmania, Western Australia and on the Gold Coast in Queensland. Most players take their wives or partners with them and the gist of the trip is all about getting together with other ex-service bowlers and having an enjoyable time. Keen to establish a Riverland base, the organisers are inviting anyone interested in joining to contact Dixie Lee on 0409 753 915, so that a mailing list for the association can be established locally.

SPORT

â–  NEARLY 40 players, including a number of visitors, took part in a stroke competition at the Waikerie Golf Club last Saturday with Derek Greenfield, after featuring in longest drive and nearest the pin calculations during his round, took out division one with a score of 78 (70) . Harry Moyle with 91 (67) won division two, while voucher winners were Craig Robinson 89 (68), Wes Bald, who had an eagle at the 18th, 74 (70), Kym Hudson 89 (71) and Trevor Kranz 95 (71). In Barmera golf, Gavan Kelly, 68, shot ahead of Jeff Halls, 69, at a Saturday stroke event, while Jordan Wright, 40 points, finished in front of Phil Selfe, 37, in a Sunday stableford.

Riverland cyclists take part in Amy’s Ride ■ “IT was a gruelling day in hot and windy conditions and I cannot remember seeing so many weary cyclists for a long time�. Those were the words of new Riverland Cycling champion Steve Jaensch after he rode in the Amy Gillett Foundation’s ‘Amy’s Ride’ involving some 3000 cyclists in Adelaide on Sunday. The fifth annual community ride was again designed to promote safety on the roads, particularly between cyclists and motorists, and was held at a route including the Southern Expressway and Willunga Hill and involving distances from 18 to 120 kilometres. Some took up to six hours to complete the 120 kilometre ride. Other Riverlanders to join Jaensch were Dennis Robinson,

Dean Frost and Paul Rudiger, who headed a group of his fellow Loxton cyclists who were distinctive in their ‘Loxton Large Cogs’ jerseys.

Young Smith shows allround cricket talents ■ THE team’s captain, opening bowler and opening batsman Ben Smith demonstrated his all-round talents at last week’s annual SAPSASA Cricket Carnival in Adelaide by being named the Riverland’s Player of the Carnival award. The Riverland boys had trouble adjusting to turf wickets, dropped a few crucial catches and ran into some of the leading juniors in the state early in their four game program but officials were pleased that they continued to really put in and showed considerable improvement as the week unfolded. Finally, a reward came on the final day with a good win over North East, 7 for 173 to 143. Ceejay Inglis scored 46 and was named the team’s Man of the Match, Josh Kleinig made 34 and in the bowling, Declan Sidhu captured 3 for 10 and Zac Wooldridge 2 for 22. Earlier Man of the Match winners were Zac Wooldridge, Josh Kleinig and Ben Smith.

Berri out of Twenty20 Cup in first round â–  IT was an early exit for Berri in the Country Living Homes Twenty20 Champions Cup at Barmera on Sunday. Berri batted first with Todd van Dyk steadying the middle order with 23 before Paul Burnett smashed an unbeaten 70 in a total of 5/156. Broken Hill chased the total three wickets down with an over to spare.

Renmark lead men’s division one basketball ■ RENMARK pulled off a closely fought victory in men’s division one basketball during the week. Mark Lycett was on fire with 24 points in the 53 to 50 win over Barmera. Adam Proud top scored with nine points in Loxton’s win over Berri, 36 to 29. In the women’s division one competition, an even team effort saw Renmark defeat Berri 31 to 27, while Alicia Curtis’ 12 points helped Waikerie beat Loxton, 33 to 26.

Umpire chief applies to continue role

l

Issue No. 254

AFTER being head of the Riverland Football League Umpires Association for the past seven seasons, Father Steve Ardill has applied for the top role once again despite 2012 being one of his most challenging seasons. Father Ardill said he will put his “hat in the ring again” to lead local umpires for an eighth consecutive season. “Two thousand and twelve has been a fairly challenging year, perhaps one of the most difficult of my seven years in the role but I think I’ve still got a passion for it and something to offer,” he said. “If the RFL executive, commission and the delegates would like me to continue I’d be really happy to do that.” With a number of senior umpires hanging up the boots, Father Ardill said a lot of youth has been injected into the panel. “It was particularly challenging in that we lost a number of senior umpires this year,” he said. “Just our experience at the top was different, so we actually had to transition some younger and developing umpires a little bit more quickly. “Just the week in, week out struggle of filling positions was challenging and as far as this year too, there were some issues around finals appointments. “It’s always pretty difficult to tell people they are not umpiring the final they might have been.” After issues with abuse in 2011, Father Ardill said a majority of players and supporters showed respect towards umpires in 2012. “I think that has been pretty good,” he said. “A credit to the RFL and Independent clubs, we haven’t had too many issues at all and those times we have had issues they have been fairly isolated.”
