Bin abuse leads to removal in national parks RUBBISH bins will be removed from national parks and reserves in the Riverland next month following continued dumping of household waste by residents. Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources Riverland district ranger Phil Strachan said there has been a rise in rubbish dumping at local reserves over the past 12 months. “With the current pressures on rubbish removal around the Riverland, we are finding 50 per cent of our rubbish put in our parks is household rubbish,” he said. “We are finding that our bins, most of them are about half a tonne

report by

BRAD PERRY capacity, are being filled up overnight. “It’s actually an offence under the national parks and wildlife act to leave rubbish in a park and on frequent occasions we actually go through rubbish left at parks and if we find details we expiate people for that. “Some of the stuff that gets dumped in our parks is quite weird, we’ve even had (vehicle) engines.” As of December 15, rubbish cages and bins will be removed from Riverland parks and reserves with users encouraged to be re-

sponsible for their own waste management. The bins will be removed from the Moorook Game Reserve, Murray River National Park and Danggali Conservation Park and Wilderness Protection Area. Currently the National Parks code guidelines state that users must take rubbish with them. Mr Strachan said the current dumping of household goods at reserves is not only unsightly but is also attracting native and feral wildlife. “It’s very difficult from an animal management perspective because animals do get in there and scatter it,” Mr Strachan said.

out of action World’s only running Humphrey Pump to be static display

THE State Government has withdrawn its support for the operation of the iconic Humphrey Pump based at the Cobdogla Irrigation and Steam Museum and it is now likely to become a static display. An SA Water spokesperson said SafeWork SA has completed an investigation into the pump following a gas leak earlier this year. “The investigation is now complete and SafeWork SA is satisfied with SA Water’s actions to date,”

they said. “After reviewing all options for the pump and with safety being the top priority, it has been decided to no longer run the pump. “The Humphrey Pump will remain the centrepiece of the museum as a static display. “An interactive display with video footage will continue to show the Humphrey Pump in operation. “There may be opportunities for a third party other than SA Water to

operate the pump in the future.” However, Cobdogla Steam Friends Society president Neil Gow said he was “surprised” to hear that SA Water has decided to stop the pump from operating. “We’re still investigating what actually caused the leak and we are still doing testing on the pump and it surprises me that they would say the investigation is complete,” he said. “The cause has not been fully established, it seems to me

that SA Water is wiping their hands and putting it in the too hard basket.” Mr Gow said having the Humphrey Pump as a static display would mean the museum loses it as a major drawcard, with the icon running four times annually. “The running of the Humphrey Pump is very important to the museum, it’s classed as the only working Humphrey Pump in the world,” he said. “If it is not a working pump, it

just becomes a static display, which might be interesting but it is certainly not what we would be aiming for. “We would be aiming to get the thing back in action.” Without conclusive proof that it is unsafe, Mr Gow said the Humphrey Pump should not be ruled out of action. “If they just say we can’t run it because of the Safework SA concerns, we will then look at other avenues and options,” he said.

Brad Perry WHILE driving down country roads, people will sometimes give you a wave. It is different to being in the city where a wave or a ‘hello’ from a stranger would seem wrong. In the country it just seems friendly. So is it still okay to

he’s in it and I can’t wait to read what he’s put in his second book.” The latest book is described as a “compilation of honest, thought provoking, raw life stories by veterans and their families who continue to suffer immeasurably and by those who have successfully met head on the many challenges associated with the long term consequences of trauma”. The stories in the book span two generations and three countries. “He’s interviewed 38 veterans, some male, some female, in Australia, New Zealand and America and delved into their history before they went to Vietnam, their Vietnam experience and postVietnam experience,” Mr

Richardson said. “Now with his second book he’s gone one step further and interviewed their spouses or wives and that’s put another aspect in the whole story.” Dr Edwards, who is also a Vietnam veteran, frequently visited the Riverland when he was chief executive officer of the Vietnam Veterans’ Counselling Service in Adelaide. “He used to come up and talk to the lads and help when they were having a few problems,” Mr Richardson said. “He was a regular visitor up here in the 1980s and we were involved in 1992 when he had his first book launched. “He’s keen to visit the schools and spread the word amongst the young kids as well.”

Is it polite to wave? give a passing stranger a wave in the Riverland? For example, driving on the road between Swan Reach and Loxton, often people raise their hand to give an acknowledgement. Yet, walking down the streets of Riverland towns, a courteous wave can get you strange looks. This is not always

the case but is it wrong to say ‘hello’ or wave to people as you pass by on a walk or in the car? Maybe for some people the acknowledgement to someone as you go past is something for the old fashioned. If you ask me, I think a polite wave or a ‘hello’ is just another little thing to add to why I enjoy living in the country.

“It is concerning because it is a big job for us, an expensive job, and the simple fact that some of the things that come into our bins like weeds and vegetation clippings dumped in our hard bins from people’s yards, increases the risk of bringing introduced species into the reserves. “We often have fox or bird problems around these bins as well because they get into them and scatter the stuff. “It’s a national park, it’s a pristine area, there shouldn’t be any rubbish in it at all.” Mr Strachan said the project to remove the bins has been a work in progress for the past 18 months with a management plan completed to assess the feasibility of removing the bins. “Most people think

that it’s completely unacceptable to leave rubbish around in parks anyway, so around the state it’s usually really well respected and understood by the community,” he said. “A national park is something you should take your rubbish out with you when you leave. “The bins will simply be removed and signs are already up informing people that rubbish bins are going to be removed and if necessary we’ll be pointing people in the direction of modern waste management facilities which kick in at the same time. “At the end of the day we’ve decided that the conservation value of our Riverland parks and the fact that these places are becoming very high visitor use areas, having any rubbish in that park conmprimises the integrity of that area.”

Man in critical condition following crash A MAN in his 30s is in a critical condition at the Royal Adelaide Hospital after an accident between his ute and a semi-trailer at Lowbank, Waikerie. After being trapped in his car, the man was airlifted to hospital late yesterday. Motorists on the Sturt Highway were held up for several hours and SA Country Fire Service, Ambulance and Police crews were all called to the scene just after 5.30pm. Due to the serious nature of the accident, the area of the Sturt Highway near Lowbank, Waikerie, was closed. MedSTAR emergency crews were also flown in.

Councils invite Governor to region GOVERNOR of South Australia Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce will visit the Riverland next week on the request of the three local councils. The Governor, who was last in the region in July this year, is expected to tour various areas of the region with the Loxton Waikerie, Berri Barmera and Renmark Paringa council representatives next on Tuesday. Berri Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton said

council plans to show the Governor the Riverland Regional Hospital upgrades, the Bonney Theatre, stormwater work and JMA Engineering. "The idea is he’s been invited up by us (three councils) just to have a look at what’s going on in the Riverland," Mr Beaton said. "I think it’s good to have the Governor in our area.� Mr Scarce said he is excited about the trip to the Riverland. “I am looking forward to catching

up with the mayors of the Riverland and being updated on community issues and regional development,� he said. “This is also a good opportunity to visit local businesses and community groups and to hear from them.�

Alternative drops claim gold THE Riverland's growing reputation as a top producer of alternative winegrape varieties has been given a boost following success at the weekend's Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show in Mildura. The launch of the Riverland Vine Improvement Committee's (RVIC) Cirami Estates label saw immediate success with the drop winning gold with its 2012 lagrein in the Italian Red Varietal category. Winning three gold with two in the montepulciano range, one silver and two bronze medals from the show, the not-forprofit organisation was ecstatic about the awards. "We just started off growing these new varities and decided to make a few wines to try and

promote them in the Riverland and to win these awards, people start to take notice," RVIC depot manager Mick Sewell said. Barmera based Bassham Wines also won gold with its 2012 lagrein and a trophy for best certified organic wine at the show. RVIC cellar hand Craig Gower said production of particular alternative varieties continues to increase. "We are only a small producer in regards to what we are doing with wine and this year we did about 22,000 tonnes and for me it’s exciting to work with alternative varities because I’ve only had other experience with the more run-of-the-mill varieties," he said. "It’s been exciting to work with a good winemaker (Alex

Mr Sharley said current visa arrangements work well for the region. “It provides the region with the labour resource and for backpackers to be able to qualify for a second year of a working visa, they have to have worked 88 days in a regional area,� he said. “The region gets a labour resource and that's very important with some of the crops, especially citrus in this region, and once they've completed their 88 days, they can apply for a second year and that is less stringent on how many days they have to work, so it means that some of the money they've earned, they can spend it.� Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone believes the increase in visa fees is unlikely to have an impact on the Riverland due to the unique lifestyle and working balance it offers. “I really think it is a positive for us as a region as they will target a little more stringently where

they are going to come,� he said. “To come to the Riverland is an ideal opportunity for hard work but also it is a fantastic experience with the river and what it has to offer. “I would like to think it would have a minimal impact on a region like ours because we offer a package to the backpacker workforce. “We offer them a good list of horticulture work but it's the package, we also offer them something more than the work and that is a world class experience.� There is a reliance on skilled international workers in the Riverland and Regional Development Australia Murraylands and Riverland chief executive officer Brenton Lewis hopes the changes to working holiday visas will have minimal impact on the region. “What has happened over time in the Riverland and Murraylands is there has been a steady influx of migrants and more than

Concern over holiday visa fee rise THE Riverland's peak tourism body is concerned about an increase of the working holiday visa from $280 to $360 from January 1 but remains hopeful there will be little impact on the region. Destination Riverland chief executive Tony Sharley said the increase may mean international tourists choose to travel to regional areas that are closer. “The reason for backpackers coming to Australia in the first instance is because a visa is obviously reasonably priced,� he said. “I'm just surprised that we are putting at risk a market that are willing to not only come to Australia but spend dollars in Australia. “What we have to remember is we are competing with other countries to bring backpackers here to Australia, we want to provide as much incentive as we possibly can. “The issue for me is, does this make it more attractive to choose another country as your backpacking destination?�

10 per cent of our population, on ĂĽ broad population basis, that come from another country in recent times who are more than willing to take up the work that is on offer such as fruit picking, working in vineyards, working in processing and production,â€? he said. “Without those people coming into our region what we would see is a vacuum...of people being available, ready and willing and able to work at a time when they are required.â€? Mr Lewis said if less backpackers and skilled migrant workers come to the region, it may be hard to fill jobs. “We'd love to see those youth get attracted to some of these manufacturing, processing, agricultural, primary industry driven jobs but that's what we'd love to see but to get it to happen is not necessarily easy and there is a lot of money spent on training and retraining but we are not necessarily always getting the outcome,â€? he said.

Interest in Berri development SIGNIFICANT interest has already been shown from the Riverland and outside the area by developers potentially looking to take advantage of the soon to be available Berri riverfront land. With the bowling club relocating to Glassey Park, the Berri Barmera Council is opening up rare riverfront space for the possibility of two or three story buildings for retail outlets or residential living. Currently the parcel of land has been referred

to Renewal SA, as council looks to speed up the planning approval stages of the project. “It’s taken years, hopefully we are in the final straight,” Berri Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton said. “If we get the approvals from the government, we’ll act upon them within two months.” Mr Beaton said council has received interest about the riverfront land from developers both in the area and outside.

“It’s zoned tourism and residential, so both could be utilized in there,” he said. “Until we’ve actually got something finalised it is too far away to give people certainty. “People want certainty before they invest but I think that once we can supply that certainty it will be good.” Mr Beaton said the area may be used to combine both retail and residential, similar to Holdfast Shores, in Adelaide.

■ PLANS: An early design of what the new Glassey Park clubrooms could look like once the lawn bowls club is moved to the facility. The land currently used for the bowls club will be offered to potential developers as prime riverfront land.

clubs, in bands, at churches and funerals and fundraisers in the Riverland and beyond. “Since I was little I love singing so mum got me involved in the country music side of it, entering the talent contests,” Caroline said. “As you get older you have a bit more confidence. “Usually if you perform somewhere people will approach you and say ‘well done you did a great job’ and that is always a good feeling when people you don’t know go out of their way to let you know that they enjoyed it.”

More importantly, Caroline has vowed to support her daughters as they pursue their musical passions. “I’m giving them the opportunity to fulfil their dreams if they want to do it,” she said. “When they were five and six, when I was singing at Barmera for one of our showcases, I got them up to sing with me on stage and they loved it, they took to it like a duck to water. “I sang at Berri Merri Christmas and I then got them up to have a sing on each side. “Every opportunity that I can I get them up (on stage) with me.” Caroline was also previously invited to perform at Tamworth but was unable to do so due to a commitment to sing the national anthem at the Riverland Football League grand final in 2009. “I’m planning to go with the kids to Tamworth to play in January next year,” Caroline said. All three entered a music contest in Port Pirie recently with each receiving plenty of praise from judges. Talia received an encouragement award for song writing, Karrisa finished third in the gospel category and Caroline was third in the best female vocals, while Talia and Karrisa finished second in the duo category, competing against adults. The sisters said being able to perform with each other, as well as their mother, is inspirational. “It is very, very exciting because I get to sing with my family and everyone else gets to see how we sing,” Karrisa said. “Singing by myself I get more nervous but if you have family with you they kind of know the song, so if you forget the words they start singing with you,” Talia added.

New Riverland and Mallee Coorong director based in Berri brings...

Fresh health perspective THE Riverland’s new regional health director Wayne Champion believes the broadening of the role will not negatively impact local health services and will instead result in positive changes. Mr Champion, who begins next month after the retirement of Tom Neilson, will cover the Riverland and Mallee Coorong region in his new role based at the Riverland Regional Hospital in Berri. With Mr Champion comes vast experience in health and finance and a strong record of management, including managing the health system response to the devastating 2011 Christchurch earthquake. Beginning the new job on December 3, Mr Champion said he is looking forward to moving to the Riverland and working amongst the people. “In almost all health services what you’ve got is a whole lot of passionate people who want to make a difference and who want

to improve the health and well being of people in their population,� he said. “What I’m looking forward to is meeting the people, working with them and helping them achieve that objective.

The responsibilities are the same, there is a different geographic mix.

“There are challenges that are common across all of South Australia and there are challenges specific to the Riverland and I haven’t lived in the Riverland before so some of those challenges I won’t know until I get there and meet the peo-

ple and understand from people what their issues and concerns are.� Mr Champion admitted there will be a lot of traveling across the large Riverland and Mallee Coorong cluster in his new role and he said overall there will be many positives. “Hopefully it will mean better co-ordination of health services between the two areas but essentially as far as health services go, it should just mean business as usual with the health services continuing to be provided to local populations of each of the communities as done in the past,� he said. “You have to travel and meet people to understand individual community’s needs, to understand issues and concerns that are occurring in each of the hospitals and being able to respond to them. “The responsibilities are the same, there is a different geographic mix.�

There are some immediate health issues in the cluster area that Mr Champion will address. “Some of the challenges I’m aware of is the changing role of Berri Hospital, the redevelopment of Berri, the interaction between Berri and other hospitals in the region,� he said. “Also in terms of the new structure, how we work with other hospitals in the area such as Murray Bridge and Mannum and what opportunities there are to learn off things that they’ve done well and what opportunities there are for them to learn from things that have been done well in the hospitals in the Riverland.� Mr Champion said he will also have a second in-charge employee to assist him. “In some ways there is still the same level of leadership available, just a different structure in terms of a more co-ordinated approach,� he said.

Boats take to the water for River Run MORE than 100 participants on 30 boats will cruise through the Riverland next week as part of the 2012 Mighty River Run. The fundraising event in aid of children living with disability and other special needs begins at Blanchetown on Sunday, heading through Waikerie, Cobdogla, Kingston-onMurray, Loxton, Berri and Renmark before finishing at Chowilla Station next Friday. The flotilla is hoping to raise about $200,000 after successfully raising $158,000 for Novita Children’s Services from last year’s River Run. Novita fundraising manager Jason Clark said the community is encouraged to come and support the 30 boats and a crew of 140, the largest number of people ever taken on the River Run. “Very few of our crew members have done that part of the river and it’s a fabulous part of the Murray River,� he said. “What’s been pleasing is the number of ladies that are coming along this year which are up around the 34 ladies, which is a significant increase from past years. “Overall we are just looking forward to coming up into the Riverland and hope the Riverland community will stop and say hello to us as we go

However, the likes of Russell Ebert, Channel Seven reporter Mark Soderstrom and Sunday Mail journalist Ben Hook will be on board. “This year the River Run crews were asked to try and raise $200,000 which will go towards Novita’s hy-

Bonney Theatre’s final inspection as it comes closer to reopening THE Bonney Theatre in Barmera will have a final inspection tomorrow following major upgrades and if given the green light, is just weeks away from reopening. With carpets installed last week, Berri Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton said the final inspection will take place tomorrow. “Last time I had a look at the facility it looked really good,� he said. “They’ve done a really good job of the toilets, the fire safety upgrades, although you might not be able to see much for it, it’s all up-to-date and the inside has been painted.� The project, which totals more than

$500,000, began in April with an expected completion date of August but delays mean the project has continued on longer than anticipated. With the internal works completed, Mr Beaton said paving outside the area, as well as some minor works on the roof, can now go ahead. Mr Beaton said the completion of the upgrades to the theatre are set to benefit a number of local groups who use the facility. “It just means we keep using the facility now and into the future,� he said. “The fact that it has got mens toilets in it as well it will be better for the Riverland Musical Society events and things like that.�

Computer game laws passed

Search on to find beneficiaries of lost funds

The South Australian Parliament has passed laws to allow an R18+ classification of computer games. The laws are the result of 10 years of negotiations between the Commonwealth, States and Territories and follow a comprehensive consultation period. “The R18+ classification brings Australia into line with the classification systems in many overseas countries,” Attorney General John Rau said.

Riverland groups have unclaimed money DEFUNCT community, sporting and business groups and individuals across the Riverland have thousands of dollars of sitting in government accounts as part of $1.4 million of unclaimed funds in the South East area. The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) is attempting to reunite locals with their lost money considering there are 3302 individuals or businesses in the region with unclaimed funds. ASIC’s MoneySmart senior executive Robert Drake told the Riverland Weekly that there are several groups across the Riverland with unclaimed money. “We do everything we can to try and reunite people with their money,” he said. “We try and contact people

if we can but if people have moved house and they’ve got a common name then it’s hard to track people down. “We do a big promotional campaign every year to try and reunite people with their money but unfortunately there is slightly more coming in each year than we are able to give back to people.” Unclaimed money may occur if you have moved without leaving a forwarding address, haven’t made a transaction on your cheque or savings account for over seven years, stopped making payments on a life insurance policy, have noticed that regular dividend or interest cheques have stopped coming or were executor of a deceased estate. Mr Drake said a quick search

Additional water may come from producers

IT’S ALL HERE AT RENMARK PLAZA

FEDERAL legislation drafted to deliver up to 450 additional gigalitres of water to the Murray-Darling system may end up devastating South Australian river communities, according to Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for the River Murray Tim Whetstone. Mr Whetstone said a Senate inquiry has revealed the legislation had nothing

to prevent the entire 450 gigalitres being obtained through buybacks “There is nothing in the legislation that even prevents all of that water being obtained from South Australia’s irrigated food producers,” Mr Whetstone said. “Premier Weatherill has signed South Australia up to this legislation

sight unseen. “He was so desperate to be seen as a champion achieving a win for the river that he didn’t bother with the details. “The Premier didn’t even bother to attend the Senate inquiry into the very legislation he claimed was a win for South Australia. “The government was scheduled to ap-

pear but pulled out at the last minute. “The Liberals warned the devil would be in the detail, and that has proved to be the case. “He’s watered down his demands from 4000 GL to 3200 GL. “He’s secretly agreed to SA giving up more water under the original 2750 GL Basin Plan.”

A UNIQUE memorial will be unveiled on Sunday to celebrate the contribution of one of Loxton’s pioneering families. After researching her family history, Denise Van Oostveen stumbled upon Milich’s Landing in Loxton and decided to dig a little deeper. “I have been chasing my mum’s family history and I came to a stand still and said ‘let’s have a go at doing the Milich family’,” she said. “I didn’t know any Milich family over there, I knew of them but I hadn’t met any. “When I went over there last, Milich’s Landing was called Daisy Bates Reserve. “I went with my dad later on and it had changed back to Milchs landing.” The name change prompted

Mrs Van Oostveen into action. “I tried to hunt around to see who changed it and I thought it might have been a family member but to my surprise it was not a family member who instigated the change, it was a Loxton man,” she said. “There is nothing down there to explain why it was Milich’s Landing and I said ‘why don’t we put a monument up here and a plaque’.” Mrs Van Oostveen began to organise fundraising efforts to erect the monument earlier this year and has had outstanding support. “They all say we should have done it years ago,” she said. “I think it just took that one person to take that first step and everyone in the family has rallied around.

“All the funds we’ve raised have come from family and we are still hoping to raise a bit more because there is a lot of costs to host a reunion too. “We feel that if we’ve got the monument there that people can understand in future generations why the monument was put there and why it’s called Milich’s Landing.” The unveiling will coincide with a family reunion with people to travel from across the state for Sunday’s event. Registration is being held at Milich’s Landing in Pyap at 10am with the official unveiling ceremony to take place at 11am. For more information contact Lyn Schmaal on 8584 7719 (after hours) or Denise Van Oostveen on 8582 3609.

Lion Ted’s community spirit ■ PRIDE: Berri Lions Club member Ted Laffin with his Melvin Jones Fellowship.

Riverland

People

BERRI Lions Club life f member Ted Laffin has always given back to the communities he has lived in throughout his life. Serving across several branches for the past 37 years, Mr Laffin was recently rewarded the Melvin Jones Fellowship, the Lions Club’s highest international award. Born in Melbourne, Mr Laffin settled in South Australia in 1952 where he began his working career as an apprentice signwriter. After finishing the trade, Mr Laffin took the opportunity to join the police force and at a relatively young age, had first post at Mount Gambier. Following his marriage to Pat in 1959, Mr Laffin moved station’s to Radium Hill. His varying roles in the police force saw him cross to different stations several times in the following years from Laura, Port Pirie, Crystal Brook, Kadina and Coober Pedy as officer in charge, control sergeant and prosecutor. After extensive experience in the police force across the state, Mr Laffin moved to Berri where he fit into the role of divisional senior sergeant. Mr Laffin said he had a lot of pride and passion in his work for the local police. “I just enjoyed police work and administration,” he said. “My position was to keep all the manuals up to date, make amendments to them, issue major operations orders and to also put out, from time to time, what was called a specific policing objective. “Today’s criminal activity seems to be fairly heavy handed because when you read papers, no matter whether it is the state papers or the local paper, a lot of people are assaulting people more than what they used to.” Mr Laffin said one of the most eye opening experiences involved domestic violence in the 1980s before rules and regulations had changed to what

Wear it. Mount it. Love it. they currently are today. “When I was at Mount Gambier I was called to a domestic disturbance and when I got there the woman was holding a baby and she had a blood nose and her husband had had a few drinks,” he said. “We were sitting down talking and I said ‘what happened’ and she said ‘I was sitting here with the baby and he hit me in the nose’ and he said, ‘yeah, just like this and gave her another one in front of me’. “That was so I could arrest him. “If I wasn’t present then I couldn’t do anything about it, nowadays you can.” Very shortly after joining the workforce, Mr Laffin decided to become involved with Lions. He began as a charter member at Crystal Brook in 1975 and as he moved across various police stations, Mr Laffin continued his commitment to a number of Lions organisations. During his time involved with Lions in the Riverland, Mr Laffin said playing a part in the creation of a walk from the Berri Marina to Martin’s Bend, planting trees along the riverfront and the club raising $60,000 for an ultrasound machine donated to the Riverland Regional Hospital in Berri this year, have been highlights. In fact, using his sign writing qualifications, Mr Laffin said he pro-

duced the signs for the Alan Thurmer Walking Trail. Other highlights included annual events organised by the Berri Lions Club including the CARA camp, carers’ lunch and the pyjama drive. The former Lions Club president has also been involved in the community as a Berri councillor, was involved with a group to help the youth called Riv Skills and was chairman of the Riverland Tourism Association. While humbled to receive the fellowship, Mr Laffin said he has enjoyed his relationship with the group. “I’m well known for going to what is called a district cabinet meeting four times a year and I always get up and have a say and when they gave this to me, they said ‘we’ll let you have something to say’ and I said ‘well, words fail me’,” Mr Laffin laughed. “A lot of people think Lions is a fundraising organisation, we are not, what we are is a humanitarian organisation but we do raise funds to support those community services we provide. “You know that you are helping people and especially those who need assistance.” Cheryle Pedler, Willy Weidenhofer and Theresa Andrew also received awards at the District Governor Handover Dinner in the South East recently.

AND ANOTHER THING... NG...

Keeping a short and sharp eye on what’s K ha happening around the Riverland and Mallee

Judges impressed Residents encouraged to sing LOXTON based Hand Built Homes was acknowledged at the 2012 Housing Industry Association Housing Awards which were held at the Adelaide Convention Centre last month. The awards were announced before a crowd of around 1100 industry leaders from across South Australia. Hand Built submitted two projects into this year’s awards with the Parilla farmhouse project winning the best Custom Built Home $500,001 - $750,000 category. The judges said “this third generation family home set on a sheep sta-

tion, surpasses all modern conveniences synonymous with today’s expectations. “The builder was able to overcome the severe site difficulties and tyranny of distance in creating a substantial self sufficient family home.” Hand Built managing director Mark Hand said he is extremely proud of the win. “As you are all aware, a great deal of effort goes into delivering the final product and it is not only a tribute to the hands on personnel but a complete team effort by all of the hard working staff and contractors at Hand Built,” he said.

SING Australia Riverland and Lameroo members are gearing up for two special community events to be held on Monday and Tuesday. Sing Australia is all about getting ordinary people back into singing, according to its national director Colin Slater who will be in Berri to run a special workshop on Monday at the Berri Public Library at 7pm. He will also run a workshop in the daycare room of the Lameroo District Hospital on Tuesday at 7.30pm. “Sing Australia is very

relaxed and non-threatening,” Mr Slater said. “Every voice is accepted, no matter what. “We urge people to give it a try. “They won’t regret it. “Our members have so much fun and are getting to know people from all around Australia.” The Sing Australia Riverland and Lameroo groups are keen to grow and especially welcome younger people. “There are no auditions, we just have fun,” Riverland Sing Australia leader Jacque Zagotsis said.

“Being a part of Sing Australia is very rewarding and opens up so many opportunities to those involved. “Don’t be afraid to come and find out if it suits you.” Sing Australia Lameroo leader Janet Flohr said “Colin will show you how easy it is to sing and how much fun is to be had if you want to give it a go with Sing Australia”. For more information about the Berri event, contact Jacque on 8583 5525 or for the Lameroo event, contact Janet on 8576 3074.

Camp at Blanchetown BIG4 for a good cause BIG4 Blanchetown Riverside Holiday Park is encouraging locals to enjoy a night under the stars tomorrow for a nominal $20 site fee to be donated by the park to the Blanchetown Health and Aged Care Centre. Camp and Care with BIG4 encourages people to try camping for the first time and to explore a holiday destination close to home, while helping a worthy cause. All proceeds from the park will go to Blanchetown Health and Aged Care Centre, which provides support services to aged members of the community and those affected by disability. Park owner Jodie Bitmead said the event is a great opportunity to grab the kids or a group of friends and experience the thrill of camping in the name of charity. “You can relax on the edge of the mighty Murray River while the kids enjoy a treasure hunt and sausage sizzle on the Saturday,” she said.

“All you need is $20, your camping gear and a sense of adventure – we provide the rest.” With 100 BIG4 Holiday Parks participating in Camp and Care this year, Rachel Pugh, general manager of marketing at BIG4 Holiday Parks said the ninth annual camping event will appeal to all holiday makers wanting to try something new and make a difference. “Last year’s event was a great success, raising much needed funds for causes all over the country,” she said. “We’re looking forward to working with the people of Australia to make a small difference once again. Many parks will be hosting additional activities over the weekend to celebrate the event such as pancake breakfasts, face painting and BBQs to name just a few, so check out the list of participating parks online at BIG4.com.au/comecamp and explore a new, or familiar, area for a good cause.

Moorook man calls for volunteers to process fruit crop to... POLICE NEWS Woman refuses to take test AFTER a 30-year-old Riverland woman was refused to take an alcotest in the early hours of yesterday morning, she was issued with an immediate loss of licence. She was stopped by police in Barmera where she allegedly refused to submit to the alcotest. The woman will appear in a court at a later date.

Cultivating cannabis arrest A 46-year-old man from Pinnaroo was reported on Tuesday for cultivating cannabis after police allegedly located seven small cannabis plants in his back yard. He will appear in a court at a later date.

Suspicious fire in Loxton LOCAL police are investigating a fire that appears to have been deliberately lit in the early hours of yesterday morning. At about 12.30am police were called to a house on Acacia Avenue, Loxton, where a fire had been lit at the front porch area of the house. Damage was caused to some walls, a door and the lawn area. No-one was injured as a result of the fire. Police are calling for any witnesses or any information about this fire to 131 444 or Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000 or online on www.sa.crimestoppers.com.au

Driving a stolen car A 39-year-old Paringa man was arrested on Monday for theft and traffic offences after police allegedly located him driving in Renmark in a van that was identified as being stolen from interstate. He will appear in a court at a later date.

Waikerie man’s trespass A 28-year-old man from Waikerie was arrested last Friday for serious criminal trespass and theft after he allegedly broke into a house at Barmera earlier this month and stole a laptop computer and camera. He was also charged with carrying an offensive weapon after items, including a tyre iron and a knuckle duster, were allegedly located during his arrest. He will appear in court at a later date.

Help those in need FOR Moorook man Lou Moss, raising money and volunteering in other parts of the world is an important part of his life. After purchasing his current property with a number of apricot trees in 2008, Mr Moss decided to donate money from his harvests to aid communities in places such as Tonga, Cambodia and Papua New Guinea. While last season’s crop was well down on previous years with only about $3000 raised, that did not deter Mr Moss from continuing his aid work, recently heading to Kudjip in the Papua New Guinea Highlands to donate the money to a hospital. “The rewarding thing is working together with other folk and seeing it all done and seeing the funds go to where we want them to go,” he said. “Now that I’ve been a few times it’s not so much of an eye opener because I know what to expect but it’s always good to be able to help and feel that you are being useful somewhere.” Since beginning his fundraising through the local church, Mr Moss has totaled more than $17,500 over three seasons with volunteers helping to pick and dry the apricots. Of those funds, about $8000 was given to the Mango Tree Rehabilitation Centre in Tonga, $7500 to Lutheran food aid programs in Cambodia and the latest money went to a hospital near Papua New Guinea. While Mr Moss hopes to continue the positive work in the coming season, due to young people moving out of the region, he is short on volunteers. Unfortunately, unless enough volunteers come forward, the fruit will remain on the trees. “I think we proved we can do it and get some worthwhile funding from it,” Mr Moss said. “If we can get some younger folks on board again they will see it is worthwhile in getting

involved,” he said. “There are no material rewards but it is about being part of achieving something somewhere in the world.” If you are interested in volunteering, contact Mr Moss on 8583 9117 in the evening.

Government doubles incentive to employers for tradespeople UP to 21,000 plumbers, electricians, carpenters and other construction tradespeople will be recruited under reforms that will ensure the Australian economy has the

skilled workers it needs. As part of a major overhaul of the apprenticeship system, the Gillard Government will offer greater incentives to critical areas of the

economy that are experiencing skills shortages, with an initial focus on the construction industry. The reforms will better target incentives to employ-

ers and put a greater emphasis on full-time jobs in skills that the economy urgently needs. Minister for Skills Senator Chris Evans said the Government will double the incentive paid to employers for an additional 21,000 plumbers, electricians, carpenters and other construction tradespeople. “This means thousands more young Australians will have the opportunity to learn a trade and access the high-paid, high-skilled jobs in our economy,” Senator Evans said. The Kickstart initiative will give small and medium employers, who employ an apprentice between December 2012 and February 2013, an additional $3350 payment in two instalments. The initiative will significantly boost the incentive payment to employers who take on new apprentices in trades experiencing a decline in start ups, with an initial focus on construction. “This increases the support to an apprentice in the traditional trade from $9500 to $12,850,” he said.

“The boost of traditional trades is also needed because conditions in the housing sector are set to improve into 2014 and 2015. “This will see the demand for construction skills grow again and it is important that we start training Australians in those skills now. “These reforms ensure we deliver the right skills, in the right areas, at the right time.” The reforms also provide greater incentives for employers to hire employees on a full time basis. The Government will further reform the system to: ■ Balance the incentives paid to part-time and casual trainees in non-shortage occupations as a proportion of the incentive paid for a fulltime trainee. ■ Maintain support for trainees doing diplomas in the skills needs areas of aged care, child care and nursing, while supporting other Diploma students through access to HECS style loans and the industrydriven National Workforce Development Fund.

■ Simplify and better target support for employers of adult apprentices (aged 25 years and over) by replacing weekly payments of $150 to employers in the first year of an adult apprenticeship and $100 in the second year with a one-off bonus payment of $4000. Where employees aged 25 years and over are paid under the National Minimum Wage, they will continue to receive $13,000 in additional direct support over two years. “By targeting our training investment to the areas where we know there will be strong demand for workers, we will ensure the demands of industry are met and that Australians are first in line for jobs, while also making sure these incentives are sustainable for the long term,” Senator Evans said. “These reforms will help address the growing demand for skills more efficiently and is the next step in the Government’s long-term skills reform agenda.”

The award, which recognises ‘a significant contribution to South Australia’s leading automotive industry association’ is the only award of its kind handed out in South Australia. “People don’t do things for the recognition but it is an absolute honour to be acknowledged by your peers in the industry,’ Mr Webber said. “I am really surprised and winning this award is quite unexpected.” Mr Webber wasn’t planning on attending the night as his son had been in hospital during the week. Mr Webber’s wife Rose, however, was notified of the award earlier and convinced her husband to attend on the night. Mr Webber has been involved in the MTA for over a decade, and has been the MTA Riverland zone chairman for 14 years. The Riverland MTA meet quarterly with local motor trade businesses, including crash repair businesses, new vehicle and motor cycle dealerships, mechanics and auto recyclers. The meetings are an opportunity for businesses to learn about new industry policies and raise any issues they may have with MTA staff. A number of MTA members also received 25 year membership awards on the night. The event, which was held at the National Wine Centre in Adelaide, was attended by key motor industry members including Clipsal 500 chief executive officer Mark Warren and commercial manager Nathan Cayzer.

Potato business grows

A WAIKERIE company is on track to becoming a key hub of the state’s multi-million potato industry after improving its breeding and growing facilities following a Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund grant. Solan recently completed a new nursery complex to help provide a secure source of high quality, disease free seed potatoes for South Australian growers. Solan director Ken Morley said the company celebrated the opening of the new nursery complex yesterday with a launch for customers and supporters. “As one of only seven ac-

credited seed potato (mini-tuber) producers in Australia, this expansion has given us greater opportunities to grow and promote our premium product not only in South Australia, but nationally and internationally,” Mr Morley said.

tion has increased by around 30 to 40 per cent this year.” Minister for Regional Development and Agriculture Gail Gago said the company received $106,500 from the $20 million Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund in May this year for the

The funding has enabled us to meet the increasing demand for our product. “The funding has enabled us to meet the increasing demand for our product and improve efficiency, plant health and quality and we estimate the produc-

expansion, which has seen production increase by more than 30 per cent. “The potato industry generates about $400 million in

revenue each year to the state’s economy and this funding has enabled Solan to upgrade its capabilities and increase efficiency to better support the industry. “The company has upgraded its tissue culture laboratory and constructed a purpose built nursery which has improved the supply of premium, disease free early generation plant material for the potato industry. “This project has already seen the employment of two additional staff members, with a new nursery worker and new specialist position in the tissue culture laboratory.

Local medical workforce takes a break THE Riverland’s medical workforce recently took a break from their hard work in general practice to engage in a weekend of learning and networking opportunities. RDGP’s Learning and Lifestyle Weekend was held in Loxton recently and included a range of sessions allowing local doctors, nurses and general practice staff to learn and mingle in a relaxed and family friendly environment. “Our medical workforce is so busy that they rarely get the chance to spend some time getting to know each other and their families, which is so important in a rural community like the Riverland,” Riverland Division of General Practice CEO Bron Marie said. “We live in a close knit community and therefore any opportunity to strengthen re-

lationships between members of our medical workforce is encouraged by RDGP.” Sessions offered at the event included customer service, business planning, body balance and photography, as well as outdoor sports, old style games and mosaic making for the children. Two accredited education sessions were also conducted, upskilling local GPs in the areas of cardiology and working with young people. RDGP Project Officer Yalonda Flack said the high calibre of guest speakers presenting during the event was of great benefit to both those who attended and the wider community. “To have professionals from all over the state presenting the latest developments as leaders in their field was fan-

tastic,” she Flack said. “Our medical workforce has definitely benefitted from access to these sessions and is now able to offer better care as a result.”

Lantern making artist to hold free workshops in Loxton prior to ever popular Light Up Day THIS Saturday and Sunday, residents are being offered a great way to get involved in this year’s magic at Loxton Light Up Day on November 24 by creating your own illuminated paper lantern. The lanterns will

be displayed at Light Up Day and then, as the sun sets it will light them all together to form a dazzling procession through the crowd to launch this year’s fireworks. The Loxton Chamber of Commerce, together

with Riverland Youth Theatre, were successful in receiving a grant from Country Arts SA to bring lantern making artist Paula Gallagher to the Riverland to conduct two days of workshops this weekend. Paula has been work-

ing in community art and cultural development for 20 years. She specialises in facilitating workshops with diverse communities to create lanterns, puppets, floats and costumes for large scale events and celebrations.

The workshops are free and will be held in the ‘Blue Shop’ next to IGA between 10am and 4pm on both days. To register yourself or your school, contact the Riverland Youth Theatre on 8586 3437 or email admin@ryt.org.au.

ROSEDALE Ownership of unusual pets on rise MEATS

HOW do you treat a sick lizard and what is the best way to prevent illness in pet rats? Unusual pet expert Doctor Brendan Carmel said with increasing urbanisation, ownership of lizards and snakes and other unusual pets is on the rise in Australia. “These types of pets are perfect for apartment living, in particular reptiles and rodents as they don’t take up much room and require little exercise,” he said. Dr Carmel also said common mouse and rat diseases include respiratory disease and mammary tumours. “It’s important for owners to know that these unusual pets need to be checked regularly by their local vet as they get sick like other pets,” he said. “Your vet will be happy to give you advice on preventative care which includes proper diet and housing.” According to the Australian Companion Animal Council (2006) every week approximately 200 reptiles, including turtles, lizards and snakes are sold throughout Australia.

Tips for lizard owners:

Lizard enclosure IT VITAL lizard owners provide a

comfortable and safe enclosure for their pet. The factors that you should keep in mind while choosing an enclosure for your lizard are security, heating, humidity, space and lighting Make sure that the lizard’s enclosure is ready before you bring it home. The size of the lizard’s home needs to be large enough so that it can spend the whole day there. The lizard enclosure you choose for your lizard should be escape proof and easy to clean and properly ventilated. Clean the enclosure for the lizard regularly in order to prevent your pet from getting ill.

requires is maintenance. Lizard owner should make sure that the lizard’s food bowl is never empty. You must serve fresh water twice a day to your pet lizard and clean its enclosure on a weekly basis. It is advisable no to hold your pet lizard by its tail. The lizard owner should also regularly take their pet to a veterinarian for regular checkups. Sourced: http://www.petcaregt.com/

IT IS important for a lizard owner to know the particular foods that your breed of lizard will eat. Some lizards are vegetarian while others are not. Most of the lizards like to eat insects like crickets and mealworms. If your lizard is vegetarian then you can serve it green leafy vegetables, snap peas, green beans and fruits like figs and peaches.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Does the council consider the future of the area or are they more concerned with their own gain?

On the road to recovery RECENTLY I had an unfortunate accident and sadly for me I came off second best. Having just spent three and a half weeks in hospital has made me realize what a caring community I live in. I have been completely blown away by the messages of support and encouragement, the flowers, the hospital visits, phone calls, cards etc. To my close family, thank you so much for your love and support. Many thanks also to the ambulance people and the doctors and staff of the Berri, Flinders Private and Renmark hospitals for your care. What a wonderful lot of people you are! I’ve got a fair way to go yet to get back on my feet but I am getting there slowly. The “old chook” will be back soon to see my friends at the Riverland Farmers’ Market. It really makes me proud to be a member of the Riverland community. Once again my heartfelt thanks. Kaylene Letton, Paringa.

Gordon Williams, Barmera.

Committed to reform

Interstate contractor? I HAVE read your article referring to the waste collection (Waste giant’s eigh year contract, November 1) and am very concerned over the handing of the contract to an

interstate contractor. Over $800,000 will leave our district and if you include other expenses that are bound to occur, the figure could well exceed $1 million. This is ratepayer money and should remain in our district.

IT WAS interesting to read Senate Nationals candidate James Stacey’s opinion on the Murray Darling Basin in the Riverland Weekly recently. The Gillard Government will not wait until the next drought to act. We are not prepared to stand idly by while the basin system enters the next drought already in a poor state of health. That is why the Government is committed to Murray Darling Basin reform which achieves three key outcomes; healthy rivers, strong communities and sustainable food production. The Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Water Minister Tony Burke recently announced that the Government will deliver an additional 450GL to achieve better environmental outcomes for the Basin, on top of the 2750GL of water per year

be returned as recommended by the Murray-Darling Basin Authority. The additional environmental water will benefit major wetlands across the Basin and the lower lakes in South Australia and help ensure the system never again goes into a period of drought lacking the resilience it needs to survive. Mr Stacey calls for all Federal South Australian politicians to get behind the MDBA Plan. I remind readers that every South Australian Labor MP has already committed to the plan – the question is whether all Liberal and National MPs will be supporting it too? Senator Anne McEwen, Senator for South Australia, Chief Government Whip in the Senate. NOTE: The above cartoon by George Aldridge was produced in 1992 when he was a cartoonist-in-residence with the Riverland Horticultural Council, assisted by the Australia Council, the Federal Governments’ Art Funding and Advisory body and the Regional Cultural Council of SA.

Tips to ensure you have a stress free Christmas By AMP Financial Planner Craig Rashleigh, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® professional IT’S beginning to look a lot like Christmas, but are you able to enjoy the festive season without blowing a hole in your budget? As it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of the season, we can sometimes go a little overboard with gifts for our family, friends and ourselves. While there’s nothing wrong

with spreading the Christmas cheer, it is wise to plan ahead so you don’t find yourself starting a new year with a major debt to pay off. The following tips could help you enjoy a happier Christmas and a debt-free New Year.

small gifts you want to buy for teachers, neighbours and party hosts. If the total is more than you can afford, review your limits. If you make this list and stick to it, you won’t end up with any nasty surprises later on.

Shop at the sales

LOCALLY OWNED & OPERATED

Keep an eye out for items on your list that are on sale and check store catalogues for discounts and special offers. With many retailers still doing it tough, you might also be able to ask for a discount for cash.

Head online to shop

are other big expenses to prepare for in January and February. Expenses such as utility bills and back-to-school costs such as fees and uniforms need to be factored into your overall budget.

Organise a Secret Santa

Suggest this to your family so noPrepare a budget body feels under pressure to spend Make a list of everyone you up big. This works through each perwant to buy presents for and how son drawing one name out of a hat and buying that person a gift. You can much you want to spend. Don’t forget to include any set a price limit to make it easier for everyone. This system takes a lot of stress out of Christmas shopping because you only have to come up with one gift idea.

until Christmas. It’s a good way of spreading the cost of purchases over the next month or so. And for people with young children, this can also help ensure gifts are not kept in the house where curious little ones might find them.

You can often find what you’re looking for online at a lower price, especially with the strength of the Aussie dollar. Price comparison websites will even do some of the hard work for you. Some online stores also offer free delivery at certain times, so it pays to do your homework. A bit of online research could save you plenty.

Layby your purchases Many retailers offer this service, sometimes with no deposit, right up

Start planning now for next Christmas

Make your own gifts If you have a talent for craft or baking, you can put together inexpensive gifts such as homemade cakes, sweets and jams. If you can sew, knit or have some other skill, a personalised gift will be even more special.

Spread the cost By putting a few extra items in your trolley at the supermarket each week, you can stock up on many of the things you’ll need for Christmas lunch. You’ll also save money if you pick up items when they’re on special. For example, most retailers will have gift items such as boxed chocolates on sale at some point between now and Christmas.

You can set aside money each week to cover the cost of next Christmas. Many financial institutions offer special savings accounts for this purpose. Work out how much you think you’ll need and set the weekly total. You probably won’t notice such a small amount each week, but it will make a huge difference come December. We all look forward to Christmas and spending time with loved ones and if you do your financial homework now, you’ll be free to relax and enjoy the festive season without worrying about how you’re going to pay for it.

Watch your credit card Cards are convenient but it can be easy to get carried away in the lead-up to Christmas. Unless you have money set aside to pay off the bill, avoid using credit cards to buy Christmas gifts or you’ll be paying for Christmas well into the New Year.

Budget for postChristmas expenses Apart from the credit card, there

SA Water Berri Merri Christmas

Annual Christmas event in Berri set to entertain B

ERRI welcomes in the festive spirit with the SA Water Berri Merri Christmas kicking off the jolly season tomorrow night. Promising to be a night of entertainment for the whole family, the event begins at 6pm with a performance of Christmas carols from the Riverland Choral Group. Following the carols, children will be introduced to Kooka and Kiwi the clowns, as well as Princess Fairyfloss before talented locals Caroline Eichenberger and Georgette Berry entertain the crowd. After much anticipation, Santa is expected to arrive at 7pm with plans to head along the main streets, greeting children along the way. “He will be visiting any stores that are open in the Berri central business district, which is good,� Business Riverland president Barry Phillips said. Santa will then become involved in a Rose Clark Dance Studio performance before the evening finishes off with a spectacular fireworks display over the Berri bridge at about 9pm. Mr Phillips said there will be plenty of free entertainment on offer for the whole family at the SA Water Berri Merri Christmas. There will be face painting by Blossom the Fairy, a jumping castle, amusement rides and much more. This all forms an amusement centre, which organisers hope to build on for next year. “We are actually going to have them located down Wade Street,� Mr Phillips said. “The thinking was to try and make Wade Street an amusement alley but it won’t be totally filled up but that’s our plan further down the track to predominantly use Wade Street for any amusements.�

There will also be a number of general stalls of bric-a-brac, jewellery, art, craft, scrapbooking, clothing, hair products, cakes and much more, as well as a large number of food options including ice cream, donuts and a selection of hot foods. With up to 1400 people expected to attend the main event, Mr Phillips said he is hoping even more people turn out to see the stunning fireworks display. “It’s certainly the welcoming into the Christmas season and Berri historically has that honour of bringing together the community at Christmas time,� he said. “It is a family orientated event... and it’s about trying to bring together people in the community and have a nice time for the kids, particularly with Father Christmas here. “It is a just an opportunity to show that within the Riverland, the Christmas spirit is alive and well and it culminates with the fireworks.�

SA Water Berri Merri Christmas Berri traders to benefit from popular festive event

T

HE SA Water Berri Merri Christmas will be the first under the banner of Business Riverland. The local business group this year restructured from the previous name of the Berri District Business Association, which organises the festive event. Business Riverland president Barry Phillips said SA Water Berri Merri Christmas provides a boost for the local economy. “It is a feel good time of the year and certainly from our

business point of view, it is an opportunity for those businesses themselves,” he said. “Generally there is a good nucleus of local shops, particularly in that inner CBD area, that will be open. “Hopefully for our local traders it will be an opportunity to have people come through their door, it might simply be browsing but hopefully purchasing. “Our event is for the community, it’s for the children and importantly it’s for our local traders.

“It’s the first Christmas event for Business Riverland and certainly while it’s the same style of event, it is under a new organisation’s brand name.” Business Riverland has also worked closely with the Berri Barmera Council to make parking more accessible for tomorrow night’s event. “We’ve had a change in the road closures this year,” Mr Phillips said. “We are simply having Vaughan Terrace closed from the roundabout down, Wade Street will be closed and from

Vaughan Terrace back to William Street will be closed off. “Traditionally we’ve had Wilson and William Street closed off but they won’t be closed off this year so vehicles will be able to park closer and while there will be a slower speed restriction in that area, there will be the community event signs to lesson the interruption on parking.” n goodies: Santa will greet children as he moves around the streets of Berri.

WHETHER it is for larger properties or simply for the home garden, Waikerie Native Wholesale Nurseries can provide plants for you. Providing quality plants from as little as 85 cents, the business has a wide range of Australian dry-land species and will grow plants to order. Pricing is on a scaling format, so the more you buy the less it costs. Single tubes cost $3, while pots range from $6. Linda and Sarah Collins have been running the business for almost five years and their past experience working with the natural habitat of native animals has been valuable. “Part of our work with native animals was to understand the importance of planting species endemic to the area and what’s required in order for eco-systems to continue to support native animals,� Linda said. “The reason we started this nursery was because we felt there was a need in the Riverland for people to have access to high volume plants. “Drought had significantly impacted on the

livelihood of many farmers around Waikerie and we felt we could provide a cheap revegetation alternative to help with erosion when produce was removed.“ Linda said the business not only supplies plants for large scale plantings for property owners but also small residential projects and the home gardener who is keen to start an attractive garden with drought and frost tolerant species and only requires one or two plants. “The aim of the business is to produce quality plants from the nursery to the field,� she said. “The climate of the Riv-

FORMER Zimbabwe international batsman Murray Goodwin puts the longevity of his career down to his ability to be able to coach up and coming talent. At 39 years of age, Goodwin (pictured) has just signed a two year contract at Glamorgan after leaving English County Club Sussex. As Goodwin heads to Renmark as a member of the Australian Cricketers’ Association Masters team, he is most looking forward to being able to witness the local talent on display. “I’m actually a country guy, I live in Bunbury in Western Australia,� he said. “So knowing a bit of country cricket, I’m quite proud of being part of spreading the cricketing word to the country areas. “I’ve played a few (Masters) games and it’s great to catch up with old friends and opponents, as well as guys you didn’t know so well but have a lot in common being a cricketer. “We do have competitive games but the majority of the games we play are to try and improve or help youngsters.� Goodwin grew up in Zimbabwe before his family moved to Western Australia and despite many challenges

playing international cricket in another country, he enjoyed the experience. “I was very fortunate to be able to travel the world with some very good friends of mine and I just really enjoyed the challenge of competing against the best in the world,� he said. “The first class system was very minimal, we had four teams playing first class cricket and that was only strong when the whole squad was back and wasn’t away,� he said. “We were basically coming out of grade cricket and playing international cricket, it was enjoyable but the infrastructure now has improved a bit.� Appearing in 19 Tests and 71 One Day Internationals for his home country, Goodwin enjoyed facing some of the world’s best bowling attacks.

THREE Renmark youths are looking forward to the opportunity of playing against some big cricket names tomorrow night with one to benefit from a $1000 scholarship and mentoring from one of the players. Zakk Gallo, Adam Jackson and Morgan Smith will all line-up for the Riverland invitational team to play the Australian Cricketers’ Association Masters side in a Twenty20 tomorrow night at Renmark number one oval. After playing in the Riverland District Cricket Association, 15-year-old Jackson now plays for Tea Tree Gully under 16s as a top order batsman and has been selected in the South Australian under 15 squad.

He said winning the scholarship would help to cover travel and cricket expenses as he pursues the sport at the highest level. “I was pretty happy, I was just wondering how I got named and pretty nervous and excited to see how I’ll go,� he told the Riverland Weekly. “It (winning the scholarship) would help a lot in general in schooling and sport wise. “I’d like to be in a state squad in later years.� Fast bowler Gallo, also 15 years of age, hopes he can claim the wicket of an opener during the Twenty20 match, which may be a hard task considering he is likely to be bowling to Matthew Elliott or Murray Goodwin. “When I first heard about it (being selected) I was surprised and I was excited, it’s a pretty big opportunity to play for a scholarship and $1000,� he said. Current Renmark A grade wicketkeeper Smith will get a unique view of the match from behind the stumps. “This opportunity is good for me,� he said. “I get to see all the older players, all the good bowlers and batsman from the early 80s and 90s. “And I get to see it from the other end of the pitch.�

“Australia was the only team we weren’t successful against, in terms of beating in any format,� he said. “We managed to get a win on the odd occasion against the other teams, mainly in one day cricket but the odd Test match too. “Challenging yourself at the highest level is probably what I really enjoyed.� Since retiring from international cricket, Goodwin has played for Western Australia and has spent the winter months playing County cricket in England, amassing more than 22,000 first class runs overall in 296 matches with a highest score of 344 not out. “I went over there just to fill in for Michael Bevan, who was on the 2000/2001 Ashes tour, and then they actually kept me in the team because for one, I was successful but the team won the competition,� he said. “They paid Michael out and he had to find another county. “I was extremely surprised but obviously very proud. “It’s certainly keeping me active and I enjoy helping some of the youngsters and trying to set an example for them the way I go about my game.�

CHARLIE’S SPORTS GOSS WITH GRAHAM CHARLTON

Berri puts on batting clinic ■ A BATTING dominance by players like Andrew Law, Gary Brinkworth and Ashley Rogers and a solid pitching performance from Ken Karpany senior gave Berri Red a convincing 17-1 victory over Loxton in last Friday night’s baseball. The Berri team had six runs by the end of the second innings and then really opened the floodgates for a further 11 runs during the fourth and fifth innings. On the other hand, it took a Berri fielding error in the sixth to see Roger Taylor score Loxton’s only response. Friday night, in fact, produced three one sided results, as in the other matches Lyrup continued to show improvement with a 15-0 victory against the second Berri team, while the Renmark first team also accounted for its clubmates, 15-0.

Barmera’s spring classic golf event ■ WES Bald won a saturday stableford at Barmera with 40 points, ahead of Phil Selfe on 37, with the B grade won by Mohinder Ubhey with 41 points. On Sunday, the Barmera Golf Club held its Spring Classic event with Derek Howes winning the best net score on 67, Luke Hampshire was best off the stick with net 78, Ashley Kassulke won the A grade with 70 and Trevor Healy was runner-up with 73. In the b grade, Phil Selfe was victorious with 68 ahead of Eddie Van Hensbergen on 68 and Kevin Magain won in C grade with 69, in front of Shane Smith, also on 69. The skins play-off event was split four ways between Luke Hampshire, Phil Selfe, Trevor Little and Ian McHugh. Meanwhile, Graham Strauss started last week’s competitions at the Waikerie Golf Club with 45 points to win a Wednesday stableford from Derek Greenfield and Trevor Kranz, 38. The following day Lesley Gosse headed the scoring with 34 points. On Saturday it was Greenfield who was the winner with 40 points, ahead of James Thomas on 38. Others with 38 points included Katrina Webber, Reva Cullen and Craig Davis, while Jack Sullivan finished on 36.

■ CATCH!: Loxton A grade captain Rhett Colls takes a catch against WaikerieRamco.

Loxton cricketers on top ■ LOXTON remains on top of the Riverland Turf Cricket Association A grade ladder after a convincing victory over Waikerie-Ramco at home on Saturday. After declaring the previous weekend at 9/293, the Loxton attack, missing four front line bowlers, skittled Waikerie-Ramco for 100. The wickets were shared with the highlight being an in-swinging delivery from Kale Smith that removed Tim Bevan’s middle stump without a shot offered. Kym Taylor batted well on the way to 52. Asked to follow on, Waikerie-Ramco finished its second innings at 4/106. Meanwhile, wickets tumbled in the Berri and Renmark clash, with Berri unable to defend its total of 126. Dale Lindner scored 57 and Dan Shawyer supported with 31 to pass the total just three wickets down before a mini collapse of 7/20. Paul Burnett snared four wickets and Gary Branford picked up three for Berri. In Berri’s second innings, the Reds finished on 9/118 with Burnett making 39 and Lindner snaring 5/27. In B grade cricket, Kyle Gillespie’s unbeaten 48 helped his team overcome Wunkar, 9/151 to 134. In the other match, Monash scored an impressive 4/283 and bowled Brown’s Well out for 78. Berri and Loxton both forfeited matches against Waikerie-Ramco and Barmera Hotel.

Cricketers in town

■ A Sportsman’s Dinner at the Renmark Club tonight will start a hectic few days for a party of visiting Masters players from the Australian Cricketers’ Association. Tomorrow morning locals will get another opportunity to meet these past greats of the game at a ‘Breakfast with the Legends’ at the Renmark Hotel and then the highlight of the visit, a Twenty20 clash between the ACA Masters and a Riverland Invitational team, gets underway at Renmark oval at 5 30pm. Admission to the ground is $5 with children under 12 free. Then on Saturday at the Renmark RSL there will be a ‘Lawn Bowls Social Morning’ when there will be some bowlers with a bit more pace than usual on the turf greens in former Australian ‘King Of Swing’ Terry Alderman, Craig McDermott and Wayne Holdsworth. Organisers have certainly given the public numerous opportunities to mingle with the ACA party during their stay. The visitors will also be involved in the coaching of juniors and will visit the Renmark

While in Renmark the ACA Masters will continue in the fifth year of touring regional Australia to recognise exceptional talent in the 15 to 18 years age group by awarding a $1000 scholarship to

a talented young local player. The recipient will also have a unique opportunity of receiving mentoring from one of the visiting Masters team. The $1000 scholarship is designed to help meet coaching, travelling and other expenses for a young player with the talent and desire to play high level cricket.

Riverland basketballers playing in national cup ■ TRYOUTS for state teams to play in the annual Junior Australian Basketball Country Cup tournament in Albury from January 12 to 20 have been held in Adelaide over the past two weekends. The Riverland had Berri’s Steph Sarro, Barmera’s Kaiden Coats and Loxton trio Angus Size, Che Lange and Charlie Rogers selected in under 18 teams and then last weekend a number of other players were named in younger groups. At under 14 level Ella Schultz (Loxton) is in the girl’s team and Mitch Wellington (Barmera) and Zane Lueth (Loxton) in the boys team, while Levi Francis (Loxton) was selected in the under 15 boys. In addition, Ashlee Wutke (Barmera) and Tyler Wagner (Loxton) are reserves for the under 13 girls and under 16 boys teams respectively. “We continue to have had a pleasing number of our juniors selected in these teams but there could have been even more from

the Development Network Special Program (DNSP) that could have made the under 18s if they had been able to make the tryouts,” Riverland Basketball Association president Les Lange said. Basketball is indeed one of our sports that is showing what can be achieved if the right ingredients are available. To digress for a moment, we continue to sing the praises of sports peo people that have graduat-

sports we now see played. The health of many clubs and indeed individual sports is being governed by the number of volunteers available. And of course there is the dedication of the young athletes themselves with so many setting goals at an early age, perhaps inspired by the likes of Grant Schubert, Sophie Edington, Mark Ricciuto and Hayden Stoeckel that have shown them the way.

We continue to have had a pleasing number of our juniors selected. ed from our local scene to bigger and better things. Perhaps then it is time to glance back at the grassroots situations in the region that has been the basis from which many of those careers have grown. I know it is a soapbox of mine but much of the credit must go to our volunteers, sadly today reduced in numbers or at least spread too thinly across the many

Mallee’s association cricket win ■ PINNAROO and Border defeated Riverland by five wickets in an entertaining inter association cricket match at Lameroo on Sunday. With a number of key players unavailable and promising young Cobdogla opening bowler Kyle Gillespie a late withdrawal, Riverland went into the annual fixture with only 10 players but made a good start in its time at bat to reach 1 for 88 after 20 overs with Brad Walter (60) and Paul Burnett (59) batting well. However, wickets fell regularly from that point and it took contributions from Jake Albrecht (23) and Michael Gutsche (18 not out) to get the total to a competitive 206. For the home side, Dwayne Simon captured 3 for 43 and Leith Dabinett 4 for 32. In response Pinnaroo and Border got off to a blazing start with Heath Boseley (27) and David Philbey (38) having the score at 0 for 62 after only eight overs. Riverland stemmed the tide somewhat for a time but a solid 43 not out from Craig Altus and a quick fire unbeaten 76 from Dabinett, as he completed a match winning performance, carried the locals to victory. Albrecht was the best of the Riverland bowlers with 4 for 30.

In the case of basketball it is obviously well managed with officials, coaches and other volunteers in place to allow programs to be implemented in conjunction with Country Basketball SA. Also, I am amazed at the commitment of the sport’s young players. Over the winter months off season, five age groups, under

13 to under 18, were involved in the DNSP with some 100 juniors participating. This has involved one and a half hour training sessions on Monday nights, special coaching events and even during school holidays, a number of camps such as the high performance two dayers at Mount Gambier and Murray Bridge. The concentration for the older groups is to have them trying out for state squads, while the younger players have a stand-up start for selection in Riverland teams. This season over 50 teams are taking part in age divisions in the local junior competitions, so the future of the sport here appears to have a solid base. Nearly 30 teams also play at senior level while the Riverland association must pride itself that people like Nicole Seekamp ,who is now in the college scene in the USA and top scored in her first two games of the season and rising star Tyson Hoffmann, started it all here in the Riverland.

Lance’s inspiration now lost ■ THROUGHOUT my school and teenage years I was a prolific reader of books and magazines. Mind you, there was not a lot of time spent on such publications as Great Expectations, Under the Greenwood Tree, Tom Sawyer and Treasure Island but plenty on a variety of sports. I have not read a lot of novels and books in my adult years but during 2011 I was induced by a friend while I was holidaying in Cairns to read Lance Armstrong’s It’s not about the Bike – My Journey Back to Life. He had found the book inspiring and I must admit that I could not put it down either and finished it within a couple of days. Armstrong’s courageous cancer fight against the odds and his journey back to life, including some amazing fundraising to help fight the disease, is one thing but

I read so enthusiastically as a publication involving a world cycling classic is now likely to be found in the section for fiction rather than sport in our libraries. Though, Mrs George would be proud of me.

The number of runs scored by Berri Red against Loxton in Riverland baseball on the weekend.

Loxton boxer returns from overseas bouts full of confidence for state titles

Close battle for top spots in Riverland bowls ■ A FORTNIGHT ago we said that men’s first division bowls needed a close contest in Saturday’s top of the table Berri versus Loxton clash. Well it got it. Berri won two rinks, Loxton gained one with Mark Kubank and Vic Pavia square for Berri to take the honours 87-84. Mind you, a look at the table after six rounds with Berri undefeated and on 69 points followed by Loxton 4-2 on 63, Renmark, Barmera, 36, Renmark RSL, Loxton RSL, 31, and Waikerie 22, still suggests we have a hot favou-

On a Goode thing ■ LOXTON 16-year-old Ryan Goodes returned from a trip to England with a Queensland Boxing team last Friday and according to his father and trainer Phillip “has brought heaps of confidence back, is training superbly and is fully focused on this weekend’s state championships�. That is despite Ryan losing all of his three bouts in England. However, I have never heard either Ryan or Phillip go on about decisions in the past but on these occasions Ryan felt he had done enough to win the bouts, while Phillip, after watching DVD’s of the fights, tended to agree. Nevertheless, Phillip said “all in all, Ryan has gained so much experience and confidence from the trip and he received some amazing compliments from his three quality opponents and their coaches�. Ryan fought at 62.5 kilograms in his first bout against 66kg UK Junior champion Louis Claridge and then came up against United Kingdom 66kg junior bronze medallist Connor Gethin, where he lost on a count back after finishing 8-8. His third fight was against UK 63kg silver medallist Gunnis Chaima. All results were points decisions and the bouts gave Ryan ex-

perience in appearing in front of large crowds. This weekend’s state titles will be held at the Magic Millions Sales Auditorium at Morphettville, the venue for the Australian championships in February next year. Ryan will step up to the 60kg youth open division in preparation for February even though he is still currently a junior. Also he will be joined at the state titles by a new addition to the Riverland Boxing and Fitness Club. Shaun Schaaf, after 28 bouts in Whyalla, has relocated to the Riverland to further develop his boxing career. Already fit and strong, he is looking to Phillip for some fine tuning as he pursues huge goals towards the highest level in the sport. He is 20 years of age and will compete in the 64kg Elite Open division at the state titles, seeking not only his first title, but a place in the SA team. Shaun has previously competed in two Australian Championships. Also out of the Loxton Gym, Uschi and Mandy Artym have nominated to compete this weekend but they may not find opponents. Another promising young boxer, Mathew Wilson, may also appear.

rite for another title and the rest with a lot of work to do. But it is early days as Renmark continued its charge up the ladder on Saturday with a hard fought 84-79 win over Barmera. Loxton RSL, with Craig Inglis apparently on fire as he prepared to travel to Adelaide for the state open singles finals, upsetting last season’s grand finalist Waikerie 73-68. Surely that puts Waikerie on red alert now as it sits on the bottom of the table and in its next four games its opponents include Renmark, Loxton and Berri.

Falland’s Adelaide Speedway victory a best effort ■ LOXTON’S Keke Falland has described his win in round two of the Adelaide Speedway 360 Sprint Cars series as one of his best efforts. After a faulty shocker kept him to fourth place in the opening round, his car number 17 blitzed the field in front of a

huge crowd. The crowd had been boosted by a 410’s Masters event being on the program. After the appearance in Adelaide, Falland turned back time by taking out the 125 heavy class at the Loxton Kart Club’s Leith Bilney Memorial Cup meeting.

Four ďŹ nalists for junior sport category â–  JUDGES for the 2012 Beaurepaires Riverland Junior Sports Star of the Year award have announced four finalists with the winner to be named at The Riverland Sportsperson of the Year dinner at the Berri Resort Hotel on November 23. Nominations for the Award were:

SPORT

O t h e r awards to be presented on the night are the Riverland Sportsperson of the Year, Steve McFarlane Contribution to Sport and John Ormsby Coach of the Year, while the inaugural five inductions will be made into the new Riverland Legends of Sport category.

■ “HE HAS even bought a new bat, he is that keen�. Those were the words of long serving Waikerie Gold cricket manager and coach Jon Matthews in the Mid Murray competition after veteran all-rounder Andrew Bevan had scored 128 not out to rescue his team from 3 for 5 to 6 for 273 on Saturday. Bevan had been one of several players that had earlier opted not to play in 2012/13. In the Gold score on Saturday Clinton Williams also scored

68, while in reply the team’s new skipper Brad Gay, with 5 for 6, ensured Morgan was no threat. David Sutherland made 29 in Morgan’s total of 63. The other game was a much closer affair with a strong allround performance of 35 and 2 for 28 by Jason Ashenden a major contribution to Perponda, 8 for 140, defeating Blanchetown Swan Reach 124. Consistent Chris Rudiger also scored 35 for Perponda, while BSR’s Max Martinson made 39.

Renmark, Loxton continue solid basketball form ■ LOXTON will be looking to move into second position with a win over Barmera in tonight’s Riverland Basketball Association men’s A grade. After losing to ladder leaders Renmark by just four points last week, led by Adam Proud, Andrew Tullett and Brok Schubert, the Supercats will be looking to take it right up to an experienced Barmera. An 11-point win against Berri last round means Barmera is also in good form with the Millard brothers, Danny and Dillon, leading the point scoring. In the other match, it is top

versus bottom with undefeated Renmark taking on winless Berri. Scott Stanton, with 12 points, was solid for Berri last week but will need to be on the top of his game to match the likes of inform Matt Lycett and Josh Warnock. In women’s A grade basketball, Berri needs a win against Loxton to stay in touch. Youngster Jordan Jachmann is one to watch after six points for Loxton last week, while Ellee Eleftheriadis is always dangerous for Berri. Top of the table Renmark should make easy work of winless Barmera with Danika Gartery leading the way.

Improved Berri-View nearly pull off tennis upset â–  BERRI-View played exceptionally well in Riverland division one tennis, only narrowly losing to ladder leader Waikerie on the weekend. Marnie Stewart and Alicia

Shotton were superb in victories but the likes of Waikerie’s Steven Braun helped in his team’s win. In the other match, Troy Saville and Shannon Nettle led Cobdogla to a 8-4 win over Loxton.
