have a soft spot for the Riverland
Field Days, the region’s biggest
annual event... near Barmera,” she
“The whole Riverland looks
forward to it every year.”
Senator Ruston said the Field
Days have been important in driving
innovation in agriculture and
helping farmers adopt techniques
and technology to improve their

Distillery venue manager
Erica Babbage said staff came to
the decision to focus on making
the Sunday a “fantastic event”.
“It makes more sense to put
all our efforts and resources into
the one day and get everyone
here, have a great time and cer-
tainly have them up close and
personal with the artists,” she
“It’s really important that we
have a fantastic event and every-

A RENMARK woman feared for her family’s
lives last week when a man “on a rampage”
threatened to get a gun and shoot them.
Last Thursday, a 24-year-old Renmark man
was arrested after leading police on a danger-
ous chase through the township, before he was
caught in traffic at the Paringa Bridge.
The woman, who the Murray Pioneer decid-
ed not to name, was in her home at around 12
noon when she heard a commotion outside.
“At the end of our street there’s a dead-end
and a bike track. Kids come and do burnouts
there sometimes, but this time they kept going
and going and we could hear rocks flicking up
and hitting a car,” she said.
“It kept going for about 10 minutes and
we were absolutely stunned because he was
yelling out, ‘I’m going to f***ing kill you’ and
going absolutely mental.”
