The Riverland is under siege with fruit fly

More than 2.5 million sterile fruit flies have been released in the Riverland, as the region battles five outbreaks of Queensland fruit fly, which could cost local farmers and communities millions of dollars.

Speaking to the ABC, Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone has called on backyard fruit tree owners to strip their trees of fruit to do their part to help get the regionís 1.3 billion horticulture industry back to their fruit fly-free status.

"Over 33 tons of fruit have been collected, we would imagine that there would be significantly more fruit to be collected if people were to strip their trees."

He said the full economic impact of the outbreaks was yet to be seen but it cost growers more than $4 a case to treat their fruit.

"I am estimating it could be $20 million and be as much as $30 million coming out of the local economy.

On the 200th Anniversary of Greek Independence

I join with the more than 400,000 Australians of Greek heritage in commemorating the 200th anniversary of Greeceís victory against the Ottoman Empire, and its achievement of Independence. As the proud first generation son of a Greek migrant mother, this important milestone provides me a unique opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of Greek Australians to our great nation. The history of Greek migration to Australia  is closely tied to the War of Independence, with the first Greek settlers arriving in Australia not long after the beginning of the War in 1821.....
