After missing out on first two rounds, local projects hope to have...

RDA FUND BOOST A NUMBER of Riverland and Mallee projects have proceeded to full application stage for rounds three and four of the Regional Development Australia Fund (RDAF). Riverland and Mallee councils are hopeful projects will be successful after no funding was awarded to the region in the first two rounds. Round three of the fund is worth $50 million and will provide grants of between $50,000

REPORT BY

BRAD PERRY and $500,000 for projects located in towns with a population of 30,000 or less. Round four will allocate $175 million through grants of between $500,000 and $15 million for priority regional

infrastructure projects. Renmark Paringa Council’s Renmark town centre revitalisation project, the Waikerie sports precinct stage two development, Swan Reach town hall redevelopment and the Pinnaroo wetlands walking trails and recreation open space are all projects that have progressed in round three. A Karoonda East Murray Council project, Mindarie Connect, has pushed to the next stage of the

round four fund. RDA Murraylands and Riverland chair Neil Martinson said there were some hard decisions and the projects that meet clearly identified regional priorities were selected. “We received a number of high quality project proposals and it was difficult to choose those that will proceed to the final stage of the application process,” Mr Martinson said.

“The projects chosen took into the account the priorities of our regional plan and other identified community priorities and address the needs of the region. “The projects are backed by a strong level of community support and are ready to proceed. “They will each have a positive long-term impact on our region and neighbouring regions.” ■ Continued Page 5

Scholarship boost SCHOLARSHIPS have been offered to 190 allied health professionalsm, including two Riverlanders, wanting to complete postgraduate study this year – more than double the number offered last year – in the latest round announced by Services for Australian Rural and Remote Allied Health (SARRAH). Offers were recently sent to qualified allied health professionals including eight paramedics, whose profession was added to the postgraduate scholarships program for the first time this year. Others include those working in physiotherapy, social work, dietetics and nutrition, pharmacy, sonography and speech therapy. Two graduates in the Riverland were offered the postgraduate study courses, one in Berri and one in Loxton. SARRAH CEO Rod Wellington said $3.6 million in Commonwealth funding was available for those taking up study places in 2013. The 190 scholarships offered this year compares with 85 offers

made last year. “These scholarships have been hugely popular with allied health professionals who not only benefit, but bring a higher standard of care to patients in rural and remote Australia,� Mr Wellington said. “These scholars are having a huge impact on rural patients in crucial areas of need such as aged health care, mental health, early intervention and Aboriginal health.� Loxton social worker Kylie Stephens recently finished a two year Graduate Diploma in Perinatal and Infant Medical Health as part of the scholarship program. She said the SARRAH scholarship was worth $15,000 and helped to pay for fees, books and twice yearly study blocks in Sydney. “Thousands apply for these scholarships every year and not many are granted so I was extremely fortunate to get one,� Mrs Stephens said. “The scholarships are only granted to those people living and working in rural areas.

■STUDY: Loxton social worker Kylie Stephens. “This has added to my current qualifications (Bachelor of Social Work) and has expanded my practice skills and knowledge on supporting infants right through from pregnancy to age five in my role at CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health) as an Early Intervention Clinical Therapist.�

Mrs Stephens said the scholarship enabled her to develop important skills. “The pregnancy and early infancy is a crucial period of time for the development of the infant and pathways are set up for future successes in all areas including physical, emotional and cognitive development,� she said. “The field of infant mental health focusses on the emotional, social and psychological needs of the infant and provides a knowledge base on how to best support the infant and his family, so that the infant will have the best chance possible to develop into a healthy child. “Healthy, well developed children are able to cope better with the rollercoasters we all experience in life such as school, friendships, grief and trauma, and future successes such as careers, and relationships etc. “When we are able to address mental health issues in infants they are less likely to develop into serious mental health conditions throughout the lifespan including depression and anxiety.�

Desexing and adoption to reduce cat euthanasia DUE to the high number of kittens that are presented to the clinic for euthanasia over the spring period, the Riverland Veterinary Hospital, in partnership with a dedicated nurse at the practice, are offering a Kitten Adoption Program. Kittens are desexed, vaccinated and microchipped prior to being adopted out to loving homes. This program has been really well received by the community, with a high number of kittens being adopted. EDITORIAL BY

BRAD PERRY THE ‘no wash’ zone debate is one which is going to be discussed for some time. While project coordinators have been quoted as saying they would like to have the 28 zones along the River Murray running by the end of the year, I

However, due to the large number of kittens presented to the clinic every year only a small number make it into the program justifying a need for the Riverland Veterinary Hospital to run a community cat desexing program. The Riverland Veterinary Hospital have recently identified an increase in the stray population of cats and its team of veterinary surgeons are looking to provide discounted desexing program to all cat owners to address the loss of cats

being euthanised. This desexing program will run from the Berri based clinic and also the Waikerie Veterinary Clinic. It does not require a vaccination history and is done at a discounted price because the clinic has also identified the local economic hardship the Riverland community are facing. The Riverland Veterinary Hospital strives for a high quality of care and your cat will receive proper treatment and care in accordance with

accredited veterinary procedures within this managed program. “It is important that cat owners understand and take complete responsibility for their cats re-producing,� a spokesperson said. “Desexing is such an important part of responsible pet ownership. “A cat can start to produce kittens from as young as six months of age and are capable of having three litters a year with an average of four kittens per litter. “It doesn’t take long

to get out of control.� The Riverland Veterinary Hospital will also be extending this program to the Pinnaroo and Lameroo areas over the coming months. Helping the community reduce its feral cat population in all surrounding areas is something the clinic feels strongly about. If you have any queries in regards to the community cat desexing program or the kitten adoption program, please give the clinic a call on 8582 1222.

Consultation needed on ‘no wash’ zones believe it is unlikely this will happen. The River Murray Eco Action Campaign aims to create zones where speed limits are potentially reduced to help stop riverbank erosion. From all accounts, the community wants public consultation on this matter, given the divided opinions being ex-

pressed by locals. I feel this project needs much patience.

Signing off AFTER more than four years and 216 editions, I am signing off as editor of the Riverland Weekly. Since being em-

ployed by the newspaper after completing university, there has been many highlights and challenges. From writing about the plight of farmers during the drought to profiling some inspirational characters, the Riverland has been an exceptional place to be an editor and a journalist.

I’d like to thank readers, the staff, those people I have worked with and those who have had faith in me and supported me over the years. Hopefully, I will see you all around the Riverland in my new role. Good luck to the Riverland Weekly’s new editor Bev Story.

News service axed By BEV STORY WIN Television axed its local news service in both the Riverland and South East on Monday – shocking viewers and staff alike with 10 editorial staff immediately losing their jobs. The local broadcasts stopped forthwith – staff told the move was because of the need to significantly cut costs. Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone said South Australia had become the most expensive state in which to do business and laid part of the blame at the door of the SA Labor Government. He called for WIN to reverse its decision – while Independent Senator Nick Xenophon said he hoped to see Federal legislation amended to include a quota of local content. Liberal Senator Anne Ruston, of Renmark, believes the ABC could fill the void and wants a Senate inquiry into the Australian Broadcasting Corporation to be broadened to examine the ABC’s obligations to provide local television news services in regional areas. State and Federal parliamentarians and candidates from across the political spectrum were quick to register their disappointment at WIN dropping its local news. Mr Whetstone said the impact of the cost of business was felt es-

A regional television service should include a local news bulletin Tim Whetstone.

pecially hard in regional areas. “Labor makes it increasingly difficult for businesses in SA to be viable,” Mr Whetstone said. “It looks like WIN’s news service can be added to the casualty list.” He called the move a “slap in the face” for local viewers. “Regional areas have been supporting their local television services with loyal viewership and with advertising spending for decades,” Mr Whetstone said. “A regional television service should include a local news bulletin. He said there was “no justification for discriminating against regional areas like this”. The TV bulletin had already been centralized – produced and read out of the Channel Nine newsroom in Adelaide. Federal Independent Senator Nick Xenophon will move to amend the Broadcasting Services Act to include regional South Australia to force broadcasters to include a quota of local content. Senator Xenophon said such legislation was already in place federally – but only covered the eastern states. “Why are eastern states afforded protection under legislation, but not South Australia?” Senator Xenophon said. “It’s an anomaly that needs to be fixed.” Mr Whetstone lamented the loss of regional jobs and the “important training ground” it had provided for young journalists. South Australian Regional Development Minister Gail Gago agreed. “The jobs are often seen as important training opportunities for young journalists who become highly sought after in newsrooms in metropolitan cities,” Ms Gago said. “The news is disappointing for everyone who is impacted.” The Nationals Barker candidate James De Barro said community news - good or bad - needed to be conveyed in visual form as well as print and radio. He planned to talk with WIN TV about its decision and determine what options may lay ahead for local television news broadcasting in the region. Senator Ruston said given

viewers in the Riverland, Mallee and South-East had been told that WIN TV’s cutting of the local news was a commercial decision, she would address the issue through the Senate Environment and Communication Reference Committee, of which she is a member. The Committee is conducting an inquiry into the ABC’s commitment to reflecting and representing regional diversity. “If it is not commercially viable for the television licence holder in these areas to provide a local news service then the public broadcaster may have a role to play in filling the void,” Senator Euston said. “The question is whether or not the ABC has an obligation to provide local television news services in a regional area where commercial broadcasters do not provide them.” She said the inquiry was investigating the ABC’s commitment to reflecting and representing regional diversity in Australia, and the impact of increased centralisation of television production in Sydney and Melbourne on the ABC’s ability to meet this commitment. She has written to Committee chairman Senator Simon Birmingham to ask that the inquiry be broadened in light of the WIN decision. Senator Ruston said greater Federal Government costs on small businesses under the Federal Labor Government had affected WIN’s capacity to fund a news service in regional SA . “The Government has imposed greater costs and regulation on regional small businesses in Australia, which have been forced to cut their advertising spending and other costs as a result,” she said. “This has been reflected across all regional media – advertising revenues are down, local newspapers are getting thinner, and services like WIN’s news are being cut to compensate.” Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance secretary Angelique Ivanica said it was a sad day when regions were harshly affected. “We’re use to seeing a reduction in staff or some changes here or there or, in print for example a

■ NEW LIFE: Former Sunset Boulevard in Barmera has been sold and will open in about six months as The Lakes. By BEV STORY THE younger generation of the Stemberg family provided the impetus behind it buying the former Sunset Boulevard site at Bamera. However, The Lakes, the licensed venue to be established in the building, will be owned by the whole family. Melissa Sandford said working at Barmera Pitstop had convinced her of the need to have an outlet there for local produce and weekend dining and entertainment options. However, she stressed that The Lakes was six months away from opening and would not be a night club. “This building was sitting

here and so in the family talking about it we wanted to push what the Riverland has about it,” she said. “It is only going to get better.” She was keen to dispel negative images of the Riverland which permeated city media since severe water restrictions about six years ago – which led a lot of potential tourists to believe that the River Murray and Lake Bonnney were empty of almost so. Anje and Simon Stemberg have owned the Sun Bake business in Berri for the past 32 years, expanding to other Riverland towns over that time. Their daughters Melissa Sandford and Bianca MacGregor both helped out while they were

Police continue search in Berri in relation to drowning WATER Police returned to Berri on Monday conducting a search of the River Murray as part of ongoing investigations in to the drowning of a man on February 2. The body of the man, who was being questioned by police when he jumped into the river in an attempt to evade police, was found the following afternoon. Police attempted to get the man to return to the bank by calling out to him, then two officers jumped into the river in an attempt to rescue him when he appeared to be struggling. However, the man appeared disappeared from view and police and State Emergency Service volunteers scoured the river and banks for several hours without success that day and the next before finding his body. A Berri police spokesperson said yesterday that ;“Water Operations were back to continue their search in relation to the death in custody”. It is being treated as such because police questioned the man shortly before he died.

going to school before they started working there full time and studying business management. The sisters have both been involved with owning new bakeries before – however, this will be the first time that their husbands, Hayden Sandford and Jason MacGregor have been part of a new venture. Melissa said there was a lot of work to be done to create the atmosphere they wanted in The Lakes. She is enthusiastic about the new business and the opportunities it provides to further promote the Riverland and Barmera to tourists. Getting to know the people in the Bamera community and talking to the locals and tour-

ists convinced her that there was “so many people traveling through the town” who were looking for more dining options and greater opportunities to buy local products. “We are going to have a variety of small meals and some larger meals,” Melissa said. “I don’t want it to be a night club but on a Saturday afternoon or Sunday afternoon to be somewhere for people to come and listen to music. “Somewhere where they can come and enjoy themselves and have some entertainment. “It has got a beautiful view.” However, having stood empty for 12 years the site “needs a lot of work to get it how we want it, – it is going to be a big job”.

Local producers on display RIVERLAND wineries and food producers have been selected to showcase their products at the award winning Cellar Door Wine Festival in Adelaide this weekend. Australia’s biggest Cellar Door will be created when more than 150 South Australian wineries come together under one roof at the 2013 Cellar Door Wine Festival. In its third year, the 2013 festival has attracted 30 new wineries to the annual event, which will feature thousands of wines from 13 iconic South Australian regions. Local wineries 919 Wines, Banrock Station, Burk Salter, Illalangi, Mirabella Vineyards, Salena Estate and Spook Hill Wines and food producer Kolophon Capers will showcase the region at the event. ACC Chief Executive Alec Gilbert said the festival is

doors, so the festival provides a unique opportunity for visitors to meet these winemakers. “The festival differs from other wine events because it’s educational and gives people a greater understanding of the characteristics of each region and the varying winemaking styles of the local wineries.” The food businesses will be part of the new Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA) New Producers’ Area, which has been introduced for the first time at this year’s festival. “Up to 8,000 people are expected to attend this year’s festival, all of which will be lucky to have the chance to try and buy new and exciting local products,” Regional Development and Food Minister Gail Gago said.

Private water flows

Interest in reopening former Berri Direct building DELAYS in finalising details with some of the expected major tenants has seen plans stall for the reopening of the former Berri Direct building. The formerly owned National Foods outlet was sold by Berri Bamera Council last year. Berri businessman Peter Hoffmann is determined that the building will be there for the long haul when the site he bought four months ago in conjunction with two Adelaide investors opens for trade. “We had a couple of interested parties and are running with it,” Mr Hoffmann said. “We want to make sure that what we do is long term – not just a reshuffle of local business. “That is why nothing has happened quickly.” Mr Hoffmann said that most of the plans for the opening of the former Berri Direct building had been made and that on several occasions he had thought that everything would be ready to start within “another month” however, they are still dependent on others for that to happen.

Projects progress in RDA fund By BRAD PERRY FIFTY gigalitres of water will be pumped into a privately owned local wetland over the next five years as part of an environmental initiative. Managed by the Nature Foundation of South Australia, the project aims to pump Commonwealth environmental water into Clark’s Floodplain, near Lock 4. Conservation organisations, irrigators, landholders, community and private sector groups have worked together to implement the initiative. Nature Foundation SA is the first non-government organisation to receive Commonwealth environmental water to manage. Foundation president Bob

Lott said wetlands across the state have received water over the years but privately owned holdings have missed out. “At the height of the drought we found out that there were a lot of major watering sites to have environmental water placed on them but there was a whole raft of private wetlands that are very, very important ecology that weren’t going to have water made available because there just wasn’t any available,” Mr Lott said. “So we thought, ‘this is no good’ and we went out and started buying water ourselves and trying to water those private wetlands. “It’s grown from there. “We bought ourselves a small amount, 43 megalitres, and from there we’ve been able to get a lot

saw an opportunity to partner with Water for Nature, Nature Foundation SA,” he said. “Given that we are so well engaged with the community here at Bookpurnong and we’ve got such an immense back up from irrigators and from residents, we’ve used that as a platform going forward to engage with the Commonwealth. “Our view is if there is water coming out of the irrigators in the region then we would like to see that water come back to the region in environmental flows. “There are hundreds of thousand of trees down there and it is a one in 30 year opportunity for me as a landowner to partner with someone to help these trees go forward.”

■ From Page 1 The closing dates for full applications is March 27 for round three and April 11 for round four and funded projects will be announced in June. Renmark Paringa Council chief executive officer Tony Siviour said he is hopeful of the town centre proposal progressing to the funding stage, aiming to leverage $400,000 for the project. “Obviously we’re not getting ahead of ourselves because there is still approximately 150 applications in the pot, so we’ll just take it as it comes from here and obviously getting as much support as we can which will hopefully make our application look a lot stronger,” he told the ABC. “We’d hope to think that someone in the Riverland or Murraylands gets something out of either RDAF round three or four given that no councils in the Murray Mallee have received anything in the first two rounds.”

of extra water from the Commonwealth environmental water holder and now the program is ‘how do we get enough finances to get that water out on these privately owned wetlands’.” Mr Lott said the Clark’s Floodplain project is “a great opportunity for these wonderful wetlands that are so important”. Steve Clark, who owns the floodplain where 50 gigalitres of water is being pumped, said the initiative involves the Bookpurnong Lock 4 Environmental Association and many other community groups. “I’m a member of the Bookpurnong Lock 4 Environmental Association and we’ve understood for many years that we’ve got some environmental impacts along the river and we

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Bad impression left on visitor to the region MY PARTNER and myself (from Adelaide) had a family function to attend on a Saturday night in Berri recently and therefore decided to make a weekend of it by staying the night at the local caravan park. We arrived at approximately 1pm and were looking forward to looking at some of the local shops/ boutiques/antique stores and having a bite to eat, preferably sampling some local produce and inject some money into the local community. Unfortunately when we arrived the only store we could find open was Woolworths and Cheap as Chips at the time so we spent the afternoon in our cabin. The saturday night was a nice function at the Berri Club where we had a pleasant meal and enjoyed the location. We decided to stop in at the Berri Hotel for a quick drink at the ‘nightclub’ on the way home but stopped short when we were told there was a $12 each cover charge. I wouldn’t even pay that amount for a club in Sydney, let alone Adelaide or Berri for that matter. We decided to retreat again back to our cabin with a full wallet and go to bed early. The next morning we checked out of the caravan park (which was great and the staff were very hospitable) and headed into Berri again hoping to have a nice cooked breakfast at the café on the foreshore or in the main street, this was approximately 10am. We could not find anywhere in Berri to eat at all. We started to head back to Adelaide hoping to stop near Barmera to find a café etc. and there, again, to no avail. It wasn’t until we reached Waikerie that we did find a takeaway store that had a breakfast meal on the menu. When ordering the eggs I was given the option of fried or fried, neither of which are to my preference but this was the only place we could find open. After we ordered, we waited 40 minutes for the sub standard meal to arrive, which we reluctantly ate. I love the natural beauty of the Riverland and whenever I can I do my best to holiday and spend time

and money in my own state to support these communities. I was extremely disappointed and embarrassed with my experience in the region which means I would be hard pressed recommending to anyone. I understand local regional communities need to balance their own time and resources with the local community, however the Riverland is a major tourism drawcard for our state and the impression I got was that it was closed for business. I do hope the opportunities for local business and tourism can increase over time so that the community can prosper and visitors can take away a truly unique holiday experience with them. Shane Kennedy, Adelaide.

Setting the record straight on fruit fly I WRITE in response to your article ‘Concerns over lack of fines at random roadblock’ (February 7, 2013). Had I been contacted to respond to the irresponsible claims made by the Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone I would have happily set the record straight. South Australia’s multi million dollar fruit growing regions are fruit fly free. We are the only state in Australia that can proudly make this claim. We have demonstrated our commitment to the community and industry by continuing to invest in the resources to keep fruit fly out of SA. Misleading statements in your article made by Mr Whetstone can create fear and concern in the community, in Mr Whetstone’s very own electorate and across South Australia’s $675 million fresh fruit and vegetable growing industry. This scaremongering has the potential to foster business uncertainty and inhibit investment and therefore industry growth in this important sector. Roadblocks form part of the State Government’s broader strategy to keep South Australia fruit fly free and protect our competitive edge as the nation’s leading producer of premium food and wine. Four fixed stations located in

Cibus

major strategic locations check people visiting or returning to SA while random roadblocks do the same – but have the capability to be set up anywhere, or any time around the state - and are put in place at peak times such as long weekends and holidays during the fruit fly season. Nearly 2000 vehicles were stopped over the Australia Day long weekend roadblock. Our officers take the opportunity when stopping people to raise public awareness and educate people about the risks associated with bringing fruit fly into the state. Unfortunately there were seven instances where our officers discovered a disregard of the law or repeat offenders. Those cases were assessed and expiations will be issued. Mr Whetstone fails to see that the number of potential expiations are low because the majority of people are doing the right thing and that the government’s educational program with the theme ‘Eat it, bin it or declare it’ is resonating with the South Australian public. We will continue with our public education programs as they are working well to keep fruit fly out of the state. South Australia has a strict policy of eradication that has been in place since 1947. Its objective is to keep our state fruit fly free and to protect industry and jobs. We have no intention of changing this policy as it is working well and plays a significant role in protecting the state’s enviable clean fruit bowl. Gail Gago, Minister for Agriculture, Food and Fisheries.

Playing petty politics IT IS very disappointing to see Minister Gago play petty politics with an issue as important to the Riverland as fruit fly. The fruit industries of this region rely on its fruit fly free status to access lucrative export markets which have been hard won over a long time. Riverland fruit producers are perfectly within their rights to question Labor’s commitment to the state’s fruit fly program when 231 out of 1384 vehicles – one in every six – inspected at the Blanchetown roadblock on the Australia

Day long weekend are caught bringing fruit into the region illegally and only seven of them are later issued with a fine. These damning figures are not an invention. They have been provided by the minister herself in Parliament and in this newspaper. It wasn’t all that long ago when Labor attempted to close the nightshift at the Yamba and Ceduna quarantine stations, reversing the decision only after months of relentless pressure from fruit industries and the State Opposition. Export markets were naturally very concerned by this move to reduce the fruit fly program, and they won’t be happy about this government letting more than 200 fruit fly offenders get off so easy. It is this kind of soft approach that creates the sort of uncertainty, fear and concern the minister apparently laments. Roadblocks intercept fruit that could potentially be infested and start a fruit fly outbreak. The officers staffing these roadblocks do an excellent job. However, they need to be given the power to fine offenders on the spot. The minister needs to get tougher with fruit fly. South Australia faces an increased risk of Queensland fruit fly outbreaks, a fact admitted by her own department, and must send a stronger message that bringing fruit into the Riverland represents an unacceptable risk to this community. Tim Whetstone, Member for Chaffey.

Over 55s return to work? PM Gillard has announced that her administration will introduce legislation to require employers to give part time work for those over 55, and those returning to the work force after finishing maternity leave, whether they are male or female, and also for some who are disabled. This is another impost on employers and it is being done in a cynical attempt to garner votes for the ALP at the 14/9 election. How many more announcements will we hear from the good Comrade in the months leading up to the fateful election? The way things are going it might

be better if Comrade Gillard would simply nationalise all industry and businesses, and run the whole show from Canberra. After all, it would be more honest than to take over control of every enterprise, bit by bit, through socialist legislation. Isn’t it grand to live in the Socialist Theocratic State? But would Comrade Tony be any better? Jay Nauss, Glen Aplin.

Tough on drugs policy I AM writing in light of the recent report on drugs in sport scandal. I feel proud to be part of the Drug Free Powerlifting world family. As president of the SA Drug Free Powerlifting Assoc. Inc., I can say that our self funded drug testing charter requires 10 per cent of all lifters and officials to be tested in and out of the competition. This is a great cost to our amateur, non-profit association. Our drug tests are tested by the Australian Sports Drug Testing Laboratory, which is a federal government organisation. We are required by WADA and our world body to use this laboratory at a cost to us of $495 for testing the ‘A’ sample and if the ‘B’ sample is required, a further $1000 is asked for. Added to this cost is registered post ($15) and purchase of a test kit ($55), making a total per test Sample ‘A’ of $565. This money is a great impost on our association finances and is funded by fundraising and sponsorship, as no money is forthcoming from any government department for drug testing costs. Our strict drug testing policy, which is well in excess of any other powerlifting organisation and other sporting codes, carries a sanction of a life time ban for a positive test result. Perhaps the professional sports could look at a similar drug testing program and sanction of the life time ban as a way of cleaning up this blotch on sport in general. It works well for us. Don Juers, South Australian Drug Free Powerlifting Assoc Inc, president, Kingston-On-Murray.

The River Murray Eco Action Campaign, which is a joint initiative between the Boating Industry Association of South Australia and Keeping South Australia Beautiful with backing from the State Government, has proposed the zones which include sites at Renmark, Berri, Loxton and Waikerie.

South Eastern BushBids seeks to enhance regional biodiversity values through long-term conservation agreements with private landholders. Landholders within the South Eastern BushBids boundary, with areas of native vegetation on their property, are invited to apply for funding for vegetation management. Landholders will set their own price as part of a competitive tender for the conservation management services they are prepared to undertake. Successful tenders will be those that offer the best value for money and suitable biodiversity outcomes. The South Eastern BushBids is focussing in the area from Murray Bridge to the SA/Vic border, south to Naracoorte.

over proposed ‘no wash’ zones try and shove something down someone’s throat that they don’t agree to? “That’s what this is about, it’s about ‘let’s talk about it first’ and go through the process and if people don’t want zones there that’s how it will be. “There will be a process of people coming through the website or social media as well.” Currently there are three trial ‘no wash’ zones with signage erected in Blanchetown, Mannum and Murray Bridge. “We are trying to get some sort of feedback from the operators on how that is going,” Mr Olesinski said. South Australia’s peak boating industry organisation has reassured boating and skiing enthusiasts that there are no plans to legally enforce no wash zone restrictions at various sites along the River Murray. Boating Industry Association of SA (BIASA) general manager Glen Jones said recent mainstream and social media reports that water skiing and wakeboarding could be regulated at 28 sites were incorrect. Mr Jones said the program, which would eventually involve extensive community consultation, aimed to protect fragile areas where the riverbank was subject to environmental harm, including erosion. “The intention is to create public awareness among people who enjoy the river about threats to the natural environment from the wake of boats and to encourage them to act with care at a number of sensitive locations,” he said. “There is no intention at all to enforce or regulate ‘no wash’ zones.

■ SAFE: Industry groups have assured recreational river users that sports such as wakeboarding will not be banned from the ‘no wash’ zones.

“Rather, the focus is on education and motivation for all users to care for and share the river in a sensible and sustainable manner.” Mid Murray Council Mayor Dave Burgess said having trial ‘no wash’ zones is a great initiative. “My understanding is where there are reeds along the river, which are isolated areas generally, that’s the best place to have the wakeboats and in the shack areas where you have got people is where the wake is causing issues,” he said. “It’s a sensitive thing that needs to be thought through properly, it is good they are going to just trial those three zones to see the feedback. “We don’t want to spoil the fun people have on the river but how we manage the issue is the most important part.” Reducing the speed limit in the proposed zones also needs to be policed, according to Mr Burgess. “If you are going to implement something you need to police something or you need to find an area where all of that wash is going to have less impact,” he said. “I do believe something has to be done as when you can put a tonne of water in the back of the

boat and a couple of people sitting in the back of the boat while someone is doing wakeboarding, you are having an impact. “While I do like to see young people having fun on the river and enjoying the lifestyle, when something’s being eroded or destroyed, not cared for properly, we do need to have a management plan.” From a recreational point of view, Berri Water Ski Club committee member Damien Philp said “something needs to be done” when it comes to riverbank erosion. “The ski club in general would be supportive of it but we would have to work around it, obviously we wouldn’t want one (a no wash zone) near our ski site area,” he said. “As long as we still had room to waterski in, then we would be supportive of it.” However, Mr Philp said it is not only boat wash that causes erosion. “We recognise there is erosion problems along the river,” he said. “Ski boats in general do get blamed for a lot of it and they are a contributor to it for sure, but they are not the only issue, as when we have floods and high river flows, that does just as much damage.”

Restrictions in certain areas of the River Murray in the region will not have a negative impact on tourism, according to Destination Riverland executive officer Tony Sharley. “I appreciate that ‘no wash’ zones may well send the signal to some that we’ve got quite heavy handed restrictions in the region but in reality there are hundreds of kilometres of river in the Riverland,” he said. “There are 350 kilometres of river in the Riverland itself on which to waterski. “If there are some sensitive sites where speed is restricted, I don’t think that’s going to be a major issue. “Most sections of the river accommodate a lot of boats on them and there’s ample places for skiers to enjoy the river.” Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone said every side of the argument must be represented in the debate over ‘no wash’ zones. “I would like to see a public meeting on this,” he said. “It will impact on individuals but also the value of shacks, caravan parks and a number of stakeholders.” The Loxton Waikerie Council has invited Mr Olesinski to the district meet with representatives to discuss the ‘no wash’ zones. Loxton Waikerie Council mayor Leon Stasinowsky said more information is required. “What we are going to do is ask for more information…because we are not happy about these things being put into place without any consultation with council,” he said. “The first we knew about it was

when it was said in the press and we don’t know what grounds they’ve decided to do this. “Where they (proposed zones) are with Waikerie and also Loxton, that’s in our prime town areas and where are caravan parks and boat ramps are.” Mr Stasinowsky said the high rivers have been a major contributor to riverbank erosion. “A lot of it is done by high river wash which usually happens after any high river and wind causing it and also the boats still have to go somewhere because that’s where our boat ramps are,” he said. “It (the sites) will just kill our tourism because that’s what the river’s used for. “Apparently they’ve put in a trial site down at Blanchetown which none of us new anything about and what they should actually be doing is rehabilitating the banks and seeing how they go before they go any further with this.” Berri Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton said council is also looking for more information about the proposed zones. “We are trying also to get some more information on the zones, potentially where they might be and what effect that might have,” he said. “It depends where they are. “We certainly wouldn’t want ones out the front of the hotel and that sort of area because that’s where they run the speedboats in competition and that sort of thing. “We certainly don’t want something that might be detrimental to the river and to other users of the river.”

Waikerie apprentice’s overseas experience AMONGST 16 of Australia’s elite young apprentices and trainees that will embark on a two-week trip of a lifetime to the UK on June 16, to participate in a leadership and development program is Waikerie’s Stephen Beelitz. Stephen (pictured) has been chosen to participate in the 2013 BBM Skilled Futures Program following his impressive medal winning performance in the Fitting category at the 2012 WorldSkills Australia national competition held in Sydney. The program is recognised as a valuable and prestigious award for acknowledging and rewarding excellence in skills. WorldSkills Australia CEO Mark Callaghan believes that “the BBM Skilled Futures Program is a unique development opportunity for our young and highly skilled Australian men and women”. “It aims to test these selected individuals both physically and mentally, with the overall goal of enhancing their employability.” The program recipients are selected biennially and this year Stephen was fortunate enough to be offered this unique opportunity. The BBM Skilled Futures Program provides a rare opportunity for the future leaders of the Australian workforce to become more confident and effective team leaders, enhance their technical skills and develop and improve their communication skills, all whilst gain-

ing new cultural experiences. Stephen said he is looking forward to the overseas experience. “The most exciting part of the BBM scholarship is the opportunity to travel to the UK along with the prospect of meeting new people who are also striving for excellence in their chosen career,” he said. Over the course of the two weeks, Stephen will face a series of mentally and physically challenging team activities including a sinking ship simulator, mountain biking and trekking. The BBM recipients are also encouraged to undertake an international work placement in their respective industries. BBM Ltd has maintained a longstanding relationship with WorldSkills Australia (WSA) and is a prominent international pathway for WSA competitors, since first partnering in 2000.

Cruizin for a cure

BERRI couple Stephen and Joy Riley are fed up of seeing people they love suffer. A number of the pair’s family and friends have battled cancer and some have sadly lost the fight. As a result the pair have decided to organise the ‘Cruizin for a Cancer Cure’, with plans to ride their motorbike for more than 6000 kilometres and they hope to raise about $10,000. The Rileys plan to leave Berri on April 20 and head to Hervey Bay, Queensland, to be by Mr Riley’s mother

Myra’s side as she continues to battle health problems and then they will travel back to the Riverland in May. It was 20 years ago that Myra was diagnosed with breast cancer. Then last year, she was told by doctors that she had a mystery cancer and only had six to 12 months to live. Mr Riley said eight chemotherapy treatments were planned and his mother only had six before it appeared she had

beaten the cancer, only to have a heart attack and now require open heart surgery. “While my mother was going through chemo, we thought that we should raise some money to help find a cure for cancer,” Mr Riley said. “It’s devastating when family and friends have died from cancer and we wanted to help do something about it. “We are looking to raise $10,000 that can go into research.”

The pair decided to take the motorbike as it is a passion for them both. “We like riding and are part of the Christian Motorcycle Association,” Mr Riley said. Currently a number of local businesses are on board for the event but the Rileys still need further support for the Cancer Council ride. If you would like to donate to ‘Cruizin for a Cancer Cure’, contact Stephen on 0409 817 832 or Joy on 0407 036 074.

The unofficial engagement was late one night after a very enjoyable evening. Grant popped the question and I of course said yes. But it wasn’t romantic enough for him so quite some time after, with our first born son as his witness, Grant got on one knee and asked again, and of course I said yes‌.again! Challenges: We had our caterer cancel only a couple months before, with all local caterers already booked, so we had to quickly find someone suitable. Getting my very unique dress made proved to be a challenge in itself. Trying to work out catering requirements for such a large number of people being that it was held at a private property was also a challenge.

Saturday is the big day with shops opening from 9am and entertainment for the children beginning at 9.45am in the main street of Loxton. The local scouts will be offering a range of kids activities including pom pom creature making, egg and spoon races and quoits. At 10.45am, 2013 citizen of the year Dick Fogden will open the Loxton Mardi Gras parade with Steph Casha, Greg Cram, Pamela Perre and Bill Martin pro-

viding commentary. Then the parade, which is expected to feature up to 50 floats, begins under the theme ‘Let’s Recycle’ with prizes for most outstanding float, most humorous, best themed float and best ambassador float.

With the new recycling bins in town, we thought the recycling theme would be good. Following the parade there will be a performance by the Nuriootpa Town Band before lunch will be available at the rotunda. Then the winning ambassador will be crowned and float winners and the Mardi Gras show window display competition will be announced. Further into the afternoon, the scouts will again provide entertainment with plate smashing, a doughnut eating contest, relay races and sack races, while the Mildura Pipe Band provides some rousing tunes.

After the official parade on Saturday, the Mardi Gras Harvest Thanksgiving lunch is being held at the Loxton Lutheran School’s Life Centre on Sunday, while a combined church service will follow. Mr Magarey said the committee has worked hard to make the event successful for another year. “The program has expanded to include Friday and the

involvement of the scouts,” he said. “The committee has really worked together to think laterally and broadly and actively looking to see ways to make the Mardi Gras bigger and better for the community.” Mr Magarey said many of those organisations entering floats in this year’s parade are being creative with the theme. “With the new recycling bins in town, we thought the recycling theme would be a good thing to have environmentally,” he said. There is also discussion being had about changing the time of the Mardi Gras next year. “What we are seeing is a balance that has changed over time of a drift towards the Nippy’s Gift,” Mr Magarey said. “The committee is considering the possibility of moving the Mardi Gras to the Saturday evening to flow into the Nippy’s Gift and continue to make the weekend a tourism drawcard.”

■ FUNDRAISING: Loxton Mardi Gras ambassadors Sheree Cameron (left) and Lauren Benson with senior ambassador Les Voigt.

Ambassadors raising money for a good cause FOR the 56th time, Loxton Mardi Gras ambassadors have been busy hosting events to raise money for community projects. Most years the event raises about $20,000 for the community. This year there is one senior ambassador, two Mardi Gras ambassadors and four junior ambassadors. Remarkably, 91-year-old Les Voigt has put his hand up to fundraise in the senior category and by all reports has done a fantastic job

so far. “He seems pretty likely to win that competition being the only entrant but he has put in a lot of effort,” Loxton Mardi Gras chairman Peter Magarey said laughlingly. The two Mardi Gras ambassadors have been working overtime to raise funds after late entry into the event. Sheree Cameron and Lauren Benson are both competing for the title. Mr Magarey said there has 11.00am

been some outstanding fundraising efforts to date. “The Mardi Gras is a fundraising community effort and probably one of the biggest events of its kind held,” he said. Ambassadors for this year’s event are supported by local service clubs and community groups with Les Voigt deciding on the Loxton Uniting Church as his choice. “Les is no spring chicken but he’s been out there, working hard and raising funds,” Mr Magarey said. 1.30pm

ambassador co-ordinator Terri Weston said many events have been held to raise money including bingo, Devonshire tea parties and help from their local schools. “They’ve all put in a great effort so far considering there wasn’t a huge amount of time,” she said. “They’ve represented the community well with their fundraising efforts and interest in taking part in the Mardi Gras.”

WHAT has become a community tradition, the Loxton High School Continental will again be a family affair this year. In its 34th year, the Continental is being held at the high school oval on March 1 beginning at 5.30pm. Over the years the event has continued to grow and is now recognised as one of the biggest social outings in the town of Loxton. The annual major fundraiser hosted by the school community will include an extensive range of delicious foods and entertainment, as well as a silent auction and raffle. Students, teachers and parents will be involved in serving food, hosting entertainment and helping the night run smoothly. Loxton High School

fundraising committee member Justin Lane said for many local families, the Continental is a set fixture on the calendar. Mr Lane is again hopeful of another large crowd in attendance. “We hope to see more than 2000 people come in, get some food, be entertained and raise money for the sschool,” he said.

While there is an abundance of things for the children to do, the Loxton High School Continental also has plenty for the adults with the wine and cheese bar and silent auction, offering a number of top quality wines. Popular local artist Kylie Loxton, accompanied by Jason Geddie, will provide the main en-

You are not required to bring anything but yourself and some money to generously support the Loxton High School. The set up at the Loxton High School oval will see the entertainment area surrounded by stalls and rides, with the centrally placed tables and chairs in front of the entertainment stage. The event usually raises over $20,000 for the school and its many projects to continue to enhance the level of learning.

■ FUN: Children will enjoy the number of rides at the Continental, while (below) there is a wide range of food options.

Food and entertainment for everyone ONE of the best parts about the Loxton High School Continental is the amazing range of delicious food options. Hot foods include stir fry, Chinese, roast, steak sandwiches, chicken burgers, kebabs, nachos, hot dogs, yiros and pizza. This year there is also the return of hot chips, which are always a popular choice. Vegetarian options are also on offer. Beverage choices are also just as inviting with milkshakes and soft drink for the kids and beer and wine from 6pm for the adults. That is not all, there are a number of desserts on offer including hot donuts and a wide selection of homemade cakes, biscuits, slices and pavlova. Entertainment is also another area of the Loxton High School Continental that has continued to be very popular. Year 11 and 12 students will host a fashion parade, which is often met with great applause by the audience. Of course, there is live music and Riverland artist Kylie Loxton, accompanied by Jason Geddie, will have the crowd on their feet from 8.30pm onwards. People will also want to get on board the silent auction, with plenty of great deals offered. There is also the raffle offering a number of great prizes donated by local businesses. Some of the favourite rides for children include the giant slide and bouncy castle, sideshow alley becomes even more spectacular with the accuracy throw, temporary tattoos, sing star, fairy world, treasure island and glow bands also available.

NIPPY’S LOXTON GIFT

■ FAST: Competitors hit the finish line hard during last year’s Nippy’s Loxton Gift final.

Top runners in Nippy’s Gift IN its 11th year, the Nippy’s Loxton Gift Carnival continues to attract some of the best runners across Australia, with 160 athletes to compete in this Saturday’s event at Loxton Oval. Of the big names to compete at the event is Flagstaff Hill’s Ben Crawford, who has been one of the form runners in the SA Athletics League this season. Crawford has already won eight sashes for events ranging from 550 to 3200 metres in the 2012-13 season. “He’s been everywhere,” Nippy’s

Gift organising committee chairman Brian Loxton said. “Hopefully he’s not going to be handicapped too much.” Amongst the competitors for the Gift will be Brad Letton, who has won the Loxton Gift twice, while 2012 winner Adelaide’s Corey Baker, 2011 winner Jarrad Dartnall and 2008 title holder Ben Koschade will also race. The Nippy’s Gift Association has also supported a group of athletes travelling from Victoria to compete in the event, which includes AFL boundary umpire

Adam Coote. The interstate runners have a full weekend of competition, heading from a meet in Melbourne to race at Loxton before travelling to Lithgow on Sunday for another running event. Organisers are excited about the prospect of former Bay Sheffield winner Jordan Caldow also taking part in the Riverland meet. Podiatrist Michael Nitschke, who began his athletics career in Loxton, is expected to also put in a solid performance with recent form after claiming vic-

tory in the 800 metre open at the Adelaide Bay Sheffield carnival last year. Glossop High School student Tyson Schrapel has nominated for the Nippy’s Gift and is hoping to be competitive against some of the state’s best short distance runners. Loxton High School student Hamish Perbedy has also nominated for the under 20 1000 metre event In the women’s main event, former winners Brigid Connolly, Lucy Buckley and Amy Robb are all fan-

cied as chances of taking out this year’s title. Regular race caller Terry McAuliffe is unable to attend the event this year but Tim Edwards will instead take the role and provide plenty of insightful comments. On the night, Riverland football and netball clubs, as well as schools, will have the opportunity to compete in relays to claim up to $2000 in prize money. The Riverland Little Athletics is also expected to show off their talents during the Nippy’s Loxton Gift Carnival.

Action packed day of athletics at Loxton Oval HUNDREDS of people are expected to flock through the gates of the 2013 Nippy’s Loxton Gift Carnival at Loxton Oval on Saturday, February 23. With a large number of runners in a vast field of races, spectators will be entertained by some of the big names in athletics in the state and beyond. Nippy’s Gift organising committee chairman Brian Loxton said the local support has made the event what it is today. “The Riverland supports this type of event better than any other because of the people that roll up to watch,” he said. “It’s a real pat on the back for the Riverland to be able to host this event every year, especially when several country town venues are no

longer available.” With Mount Gambier no longer holding a similar athletics meet, Mr Loxton said the local athletics competition still continues to be the premier regional event. “When the athletes race in Loxton, they get a full grandstand,” he said. Having hundreds of extra people in the region, whether they be spectators or athletes and their families, boosts the local economy. “There are 160 runners, so they’ve got to stay somewhere and Loxton is full and accommodation is spilling into the other towns,” Mr Loxton said. Entry into the Nippy’s Gift is free for spectators with racing kicking off from 5pm and finishing at around 10pm.

THE Renmark Horse and Pony Club has changed the name of its annual Dressage Showjumping Series to Tri Series but the concept of the event that has been so successful in the past remains the same. The first in the three round competition will be held at the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grounds on Sunday, March 10. The Tri Series consists of a program of dressage and showjumping events catering for various age groups and abilities where points are given to the placed competitors. Riders are able to compete in a maximum of three events of each discipline

After the final round on November 3, major prizes are awarded to the competitor with the highest overall points score and to both the leading junior and senior in both dressage and showjumping. Last year entrants came from throughout the Riverland, the Barossa and Victoria while there was strong support from sponsors and spectators. The club grounds are well grassed with ample parking available, there is a top class canteen and a safe and shaded area for spectators. A full commentary is provided throughout each day. This is indeed a progres-

I AM not going to sit in judgement on this except to say there will be vastly different opinions on the subject. Over the years there have been countless examples of the lengths people will go to make children a success in sport or perhaps more fairly to give them every opportunity to succeed to the highest level. Take tennis, for example, where in Europe and USA in

particular, many success stories have eventuated where children were seemingly offered a tennis racquet rather than a dummy. On the other hand, there have been some reports surface, and probably many more that did not, when the youngsters did not handle the pressure with sad consequences. Now from last weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Optus tournament in Renmark, it appears that one young lad is being ferried by his parents around the Aus-

tralian junior tennis circuit after pretty well opting out of normal schooling at the age of 11. Apparently he is being well catered for in home education at the same time by his mother who is reported to be a former a school teacher. About 140 players from around Australia, including some 10 from the Riverland, took part in the highly ranked Tennis Australia Opus Silver tournament at Renmark.

CHARLIEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S SPORTS GOSS WITH GRAHAM CHARLTON

Juniors on show before AFL game â&#x2013; AN under 14 game between North and South of the River will be played as a curtain raiser for the AFL NAB match between Port Power and Melbourne at the Renmark Oval on Sunday, March 3. Dale Lellmann will coach the North side and Steve Inglis the South team. The teams will comprise mostly juniors from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Riverland junior league under 13 talent squad so that there is an even representation from each club. Also, the AFL half time junior game during the Port versus Melbourne clash will feature players from the Renmark Auskick Centre. This North versus South concept is interesting when we recall the genuine â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;rivalryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that has surfaced for previous matches of the type, particularly in the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s centenary year. A number of people have suggested that these events could be tried in our football program on a more regular basis, particularly with interleague fixtures seemingly out of favour.

Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knock of 162 â&#x2013; A LONE hand from Waikerie-Ramcoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kym Taylor, with 162, has helped his team to a total of 250 against Berri during the weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Riverland A grade cricket. Tim Bevan (40) also provided support, while Gary Branford and Peter Safralidis each picked up three wickets. On what appears to be a batting wicket, Renmark was all out for 134 against Loxton with Ben Townsend top scoring on 53 and Adam Jackson contributing 40. Josh Norman picked up 5/30 from 19.1 overs, while spinner Michael Gutsche battled for 4/23 from 15 overs.

Hillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state victory â&#x2013; BERRI state squad member Andrew Hill won the SA country menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s singles title last Friday defeating Kadinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ken Willcox convincingly, 25-14, in the final. Hill adds this championship to those that he has won previously for the overall state singles and country fours. Also this latest win completed a successful week for Hill at the Country Carnival in Adelaide as he also skippered the leading rink overall in the annual round robin competition. With the other members of his four, Graeme King (Berri), Brian Burnett (Waikerie) and Chris Kearns (Freeling), Hill finished the seven game tournament undefeated. In the round robin competition, North Eastern went close to

defending its title from the previous year, even though it had nine changes to its team from 2012, finishing only half a game, or one point, behind Yorke Peninsula.

This latest win completed a successful week for Hill at the Country Carnival. Yorke Peninsula finished on 11 points with five wins, a loss and a draw, North Eastern on 10 points with five wins and two losses, Fleurieu on nine with 4-31 followed by Upper North, Eyre Peninsula, 8, South Eastern 6, Eastern 4, and Lower North 0. North Easternâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two defeats were both on day two to Yorke Peninsula 94-81 and to Fleurieu

final game 87-87. North Eastern also provided the top skipper and rink in the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s round robin as Kerry Treloar with Karen Swanson, Judy Argent (Barossa) and Jocie Cooper (Renmark) went through the tournament undefeated. That competition was also won by Yorke Peninsula where the community must be doing a

lot right, not only in bowls, but in cricket and other sports as well. North Eastern won three matches against Upper North, Fleurieu and Lower North and drew with South Eastern to finish third on the ladder with seven points behind Yorke, undefeated on 14, and Eastern on 10. At the conclusion of the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s round robin zone, chairman of selectors Mark Kubank released the team for the prestige medley to be held in Adelaide on March 9 and 10. Kearns will partner Hill in pairs, the triples are Ken Stokes (Berri), George Fergusson (Freeling) and Dennis Treloar (Berri) and fours are Gary Pursche (Waikerie), Anthony Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, Justin Morris (Freeling) and Kubank (Berri).

Riverland junior softball team claims win â&#x2013; THE Riverland under 17 boys team had its first win ever at the state junior softball championships last weekend, winning its second match of the competition 13-6 against Port Pirie. Earlier in the opening game it had started promisingly with a 6-6 draw against Hills. The under 17 girls team also got off to a positive start defeating Central Districts 12-8. From then on in a hectic program, both teams failed to gain another victory but remained competitive against some very strong metropolitan

clubs, many of which play in weekly competitions. In local softball Berri has finished minor premier in the A grade by 0.01 per cent from Loxton and the two teams meet this Saturday in the qualifying final. In B grade, Cobdogla plays Loxton in the qualifying final, while Waikerie will take on Lyrup in the elimination final. In the C grade, the qualifying final involves Berri and Renmark and the elimination final is Loxton Blue and Waikerie.

â&#x2013; WINNERS: The Riverland under 17 boys team that had its first ever win at the state junior softball championships on the weekend.

â&#x2013; TWO of Murray Districts Barrierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best performances in recent years at the annual SACA Country Cricket Carnival in Adelaide this month were book ended by two disappointing results that had it finishing in sixth place in the eight team competition. Many times over the last 20 years or so I recall day one of this tournament seeing Murray Districts, now Murray Districts Barrier, make a slow start and it is interesting that zone officials are already looking at measures to address that situation. Talking to the team manager of 16 years, Waikerieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jon Matthews, he said â&#x20AC;&#x153;we are considering perhaps a Riverland versus Broken Hill game, even held somewhere in between the two districts, prior to next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carnivalâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This would not only give selectorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; a last look at candidates for the team to go to Adelaide but would also be a chance for the captain and players to get together under match conditions before day one of the carnival.â&#x20AC;? Murray Districts Barrier lost badly on the opening day this year to Fleurieu Red with, surprisingly, some poor fielding a contributing factor. Scores were Fleurieu Red 6 for 196 to MDB 84. But over the next two days it all clicked into place and with some excellent batting and bowling and, in particular, some top class fielding that included some spectacular catching by players including Duane Simon and Jarrod Paull. Firstly MDB defeated the eventual winner of the title Yorke Peninsula in a good game of cricket, 6 for 170 chasing 169 and then on

day three dismissed Fleurieu Gold for 139 and passed the target easily at 2 for 141. Skipper Jake Albrecht captured 7 for 27 in that game. Playing Eyre Peninsula for fifth and sixth position on the last day, however, that improved form was nowhere to be found and Murray Districts Barrier could only manage 105 that Eyre comfortably ran down for the loss of only two wickets. Yorke Peninsulaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand final win over Fleurieu Red was a hat trick of titles for the zone in the last three years. Our zone was one of those that pushed for a reduction in the duration of the carnival from two to one week for some time and there is no doubt more of our better players are now making themselves available for the four day event. But of course, all zones would be affected in that way and in fact Matthews rated the standard of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competition as one of the highest for some years. It is also interesting to note that players who may now be attached to city clubs can turn out with country teams providing they qualify by playing at least one game in that zone. On the score of team members experienced at a higher level, Murray Districts Barrier was one of the zones low on the scale compared to some of the other teams. Looking at the batting performances from the four days, the award winner Scott Collinson from the much improved Upper North side, who scored 186 runs at an average of 46.5 is a SA Country Outbacksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; representative, while the runner-up Eyre Pen-

insulaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Andrew Frick, 178 at 59.33, has an attachment to Port Adelaide. In fact, the top ten in the batting statistics were either Outbacks or SACA District club players. Murray Districts Barrierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Haydon Thorpe with 105 runs at an average of 35 finished 14th overall. His only team mates to top 50 runs were Matthew Handberg, 87, Jarrod Paull and Codie Howard, 70, and Brad Walter, 50. In the bowling, at least seven of the top 10 were from Outbacks or district teams with Fleurieu Redâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rohan Reid the best with 11 wickets at 10.27 and Eyre Peninsulaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Luke Strudwick next with 10 at 13.5. Albrechtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven wicket haul against Fleurieu Gold put him fifth in line, while Brad Rosenzweig grabbed six wickets and 16-year-old Tom Hawthorne and Thorpe each took five scalps. Murray Districts Barrier did not gain a member in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Team Of The Carnival but a number of people were surprised the excellent wicket keeping of Codie Howard was not recognised. Talking to Jon Matthews, he agreed that not having players like 2013 Outbacks Shaun Reilly and Josh Deren available did not give Murray Districts Barrier the Outbacks/District â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;xâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; factor that other zones benefited from. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we cannot doubt the ladsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; commitment and we are already talking about next year,â&#x20AC;? Matthews said. In fact, a victory over a team that has won this red hot competition for the last three years in a row suggests there are a number of positive outcomes from the 2013 carnival.

are set to join in so that the rapid growth of the event can continue. “We have received nothing but good reports about our venues and the organisation of the carnival right down to Mick Trussell’s excellent job in arranging the umpires,” he said. The Riverland also played in the under 18 girls grand final but went down in a good contest to Great Southern 47-32. An impressive display by Renmark’s Caitlin Gardner saw

her named MVP in the game. Other local teams to finish runner-up in the tournament were the division one under 16 boys when they were defeated by Great Southern (Oscar Bloomfield, MVP), 44-30. The under 14 girls, with Loxton’s Ella Schultz named MVP, lost 30-28 in a close game against Murray Bridge, while the under 14 division one boys defeated Great Southern (Jake Smith, MVP) 54-21. The under 12 girls,

with Portia Size (Loxton) MVP, were defeated by Great Southern in another thriller 21-19. Murray Bridge (Kenisha Seidel), defeated Barossa Valley 38-34 in under 16 girls, Eastern Hills 2 (Keenan GeorgDent) won under 16 boys division two 2926 from Barossa Valley, Eastern Hills (Anderson Wood) took out under 14 boys division two 4034 from Great Southern and Centrals (Kalani Sapwell) grabbed under 12 boys with a 37-32 victory over Murray Bridge.

Local derby promises plenty in bowls finals ■ IN LOCAL bowls, the minor round ended last Saturday with Berri and Renmark warming up in style for the finals in first division with resounding victories against Barmera and Renmark RSL but all interest was in the preview at Loxton of this Saturday’s elimination first semi final between Loxton and Loxton RSL. This was the third local derby between the two clubs this season and Loxton has won them all, 98-77, 84-82 in a thrilling finish, then on Saturday by eight shots, 74-66, with the four rinks shared. That suggests a cracking contest between finals hardened Loxton and the new team in the competition. The game will now be played at Renmark RSL rather than at

Berri as originally scheduled after an unbelievable finish to the second division minor round saw Berri grab top spot back from Renmark Gold and opt to play at home in the qualifying second semi final. Also at Berri in first division, the home side takes on 201213 slow starter but big finisher Renmark and on the strength of previous meetings so far this season, Berri victories, 83-69, 99-81 and 89-70 make it a solid favourite to progress straight to the premiership match. But of course the Renmark side has been strengthened and settled late season. For second division, you could not have scripted the finale better. Last week we said “looking at the final round of matches it

is obviously Loxton Black (fourth on 124 points) has the toughest day at the office and its visit to the top group may be short lived as it runs into new ladder leader Renmark Gold”. “On the other hand Monash (fifth on 122 points) plays Renmark Green (13th) and Loxton Green (sixth on 122 points) is up against Barmera (14th). “It seems to be down to rink results”. Well, it definitely was. Although Loxton Black did the unexpected and defeated Renmark Gold, two rinks to one, 62-59, it was undone by Monash winning three rinks to nil, 90-37, for the finalists to become Berri Red, that quickly recaptured the minor premiership, Renmark Gold, a very fortunate Moorook

when it managed a 55-55 draw with Waikerie but another shot dropped could have seen it plummet to fifth and Monash on shots up only from Loxton Black. Loxton Green could do no more but finished short. The third and fourth divisions also reached the finals stage amidst confusion. In divsion three, Loxton RSL defeated Renmark and tipped Loxton Yellow out of fourth position when the Loxton team went down to Monash, while in fourth division a one shot loss at the hands of Waikerie saw Loxton White hand over its fourth position to Barmera which received a forfeit from Loxton Orange. Both the semi and preliminary finals are being played this weekend in all grades.

Former United Football and Netball Clubs to reunite in March ■ A REUNION of the former United Football and Netball clubs is to be held on Sunday, March 10. The event will be fore runner to Mantung, amongst other towns in

the Mallee, celebrating the 100th anniversary of railway arriving in the district next year. For the reunion it is proposed for guests to gather in the morning before plaques are unveiled

and then lunch and refreshments are served in the recently renovated Mantung Hall. Plaques are also being considered for the two other towns involved in the United clubs, Maggea

and Mercunda as well as at Galga. Organisers are also gathering photos and other memorabilia for a display and would welcome any contributions while they are issuing an invi-

Crawford to go the distance ■ SO impressed was I with Flagstaff Hill athlete Ben Crawford already having won eight sashes for events from 550 to 3200 metres in the 2012-13 SA Athletics League season that on a couple of occasions last weekend I inadvertently had him starting in this Saturday night’s men’s Nippy’s Gift sprint race at the Loxton Oval. Mind you, as the form runner in the state at this stage he may have gone okay but we will never know as he will appear in longer events at the annual Loxton meeting. The Gift events will as usual boast strong fields. The only athlete to have won the men’s event on two occasions, Brad Letton, will be chasing a third win but will have to contend with other previous winners Ben Koschade (2008), Jarrad Dartnall (2011) and last year’s champion Adelaide teenager Corey Baker. Another interesting runner is Adelaide life saver Jordan Caldow, who was to be the back marker in the 2012 race but was a scratching. Caldow won back to back Bay Sheffields in 2010 and 2011 and is both the under 19

Brad B dL Letton will be chasing a third win.

World and Australian Open Beach Sprint Champion. In the women’s Gift, sisters Yasmin and Hayley Openshaw bring good form to the event to challenge runners like former race champions Amy Robb, Lucy Buckley and Brigid Connolly. Yet another indication of how athletes rate this meeting comes from the normal group that travel from Victoria each year. Headed by AFL boundary umpire Adam Coote, who dead heated for third in the 2012 men’s Gift final, the athletes are taking time out from Friday night and Sunday involvement in a meeting in

Melbourne to make a rushed visit to Loxton for the event. A real local flavour will be added to Saturday night’s progam, which follows the town’s annual Mardi Gras celebrations in East Terrace, with the display of Little Athletes and the appearance of Riverland football and netball clubs in relay events. Also former Loxton High School athlete Michael Nitschke will make another appearance from Adelaide while two promising high school athletes, Hamish Peberdy (Loxton) and Tyson Schrapel (Glossop) have nominated.

Loxton RSL bowlers in form ■ LOXTON RSL has left no doubt that its decision to nominate a team into first division men’s pennant bowls in 2012-13 was warranted and it is just not its fourth placed team that has made people sit up and take notice but its individual players as well. After last Sunday’s Region Four SA men’s triples knock outs at Berri, the club’s rink of Craig Inglis, Craig Kernich and Jade Wright (skipper) will represent the zone in the state finals in Adelaide on Sunday and Monday, March 3 and 4. Wright’s trio firstly scored an upset in defeating Berri’s trio of Graeme King, Graham Butt and skipper Andrew Hill in a tight tussle 22-20 and then cruised past T. Heinjus’ Freeling rink 21-14. Also on Sunday at Barmera, Riverland Champion of Champion Fours were decided in all four divisions. In first division, the winner was Waikerie via Richard Howell, John Segneri, Ken Dubrich and Andy Fulwood (skipper) with a victory against CraIg Treloar’s Berri team in the final. Second division also went to Waikerie (Stan Burnett, Neville Taylor, Brian Rogers ,Rom Barratt, skipper) with a win over Berri, third division to Loxton Yellow (Leon Bradtke, Lyn Murdoch, Tamzin Jenke and Mike Taylor, skipper) by defeating Renmark RSL and fourth to Loxton White (Brian Dalzell, Doug Vaughan, Dorothy Vaughan, Ross Coombs, skipper) with a victory over Waikerie.

Morgan forfeits cricket match ■ WITH Morgan forfeiting to Blanchetown Swan Reach there was only one game in Mid Murray Cricket last Saturday with minor premier Waikerie Gold comfortably defeating Perponda. This was the end of the minor round and in semi finals, Gold plays Morgan at Waikerie and Perponda is at home to BSR this Saturday. In Waikerie Gold defeating Perponda it set a target of 187 with Marcus McGrath scoring 84 and Ricky Carter 40 against some good bowling led by Zac Schubert with 3 for 34. In reply, Perponda made 105 with Jason Ashenden scoring 29 following his two wickets and the best of the Gold bowlers was Cameron Hawke with 3 for 19.

IT HAS not taken long for the Murray Man triathlon at Barmeraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lake Bonney to be ranked amongst the best events in Australia. On a website blog titled First off the bike, the Murray Man has been named in the top â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;five iconic Australian triathlons to de before you hang up your racing wheelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The article ranks a number of events including the Cannington Dirt And Dust at Julia Creek, Queensland, SunSmart Karri Valley at Pemberton, Western Australia, Coles Bay Half in Tasmania, Byron Bay and our very own Murray Man in Barmera. The article describes the Murray Man as â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of the most underrated and hardest races for triathletes to test themselves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heat and wind are the two biggest factors that make this race as hard as nails. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However the ride around Lake Bonney is stunning and through the town itself, a bit of fun.â&#x20AC;? The heat and wind assessment no doubt eventuates from the conditions that prevailed for the 2012 event, elevated to be the Australian Age Long Distance Championships. But of course, the weather that day was at the top end of the extremes in heat and wind for the area. Plans are already underway for next year.
