THE EDITOR TO THE READER...The Bunyip for once
wishes to throw aside his mask, and to appear face to face
with his readers.
We litle thought that our ﬁrst issue, presentng as we
hoped some glimpses of sound sense, if hid beneath the
mask of folly, a good sprinkling of fun, and some few wity
local hits would have brought us under the terrible lash of
the law, or at least a threat of its administraton; but so it is.
A Dr. William Home Popham of Gawler, has, through his
solicitors, Messrs. Hardy & Cooper, ﬁrst sent us, (or rather
the publisher) a leter, threatening legal proceedings,
and followed this up by a writ, to which; Mr Barnet, the
publisher, has very properly put in an appearance.

The study, prepared by the Department of Environment
and Planning on behalf of the Urban Development co-
ordinatng commitee, says the latest forecasts indicate that
dwelling constructon in Gawler will increase progressively
over the forecast period from 204 in 1988/89 to over 350
"While the already evident success of the urban
consolidaton strategy will have the result of slowing the
take up of urban fringe land, it is clear that the planning for
growth beyond the turn of the century is required."

LABOR'S $10M ROAD PLEDGE...A Federal Labor
government would spend $10 million upgrading the
Tiver Road and Main North Road intersecton at Evanston
Gardens, should it be elected this weekend.
The mult-million dollar boost comes as part of Labor’s
announcement last weekend it would spend $288 million
over the next ﬁve years on six major roadwork projects
throughout South Australia.
Two of the projects concern the Sturt Highway, with Labor
promising to spend $146 million on the Sturt Highway
extension and $44 million over ﬁve years to upgrade the
GAWLER'S ELECTRIC LIGHT...The ordinary ratepayer,
does not know much about the workings of the Gawler
Electric Light scheme, but he should.
It is his own fault for not demanding that the Corporaton
should take him more into their conﬁdence.
Very litle has appeared in print concerning the scheme
for the reason that the Electric Light Commitee holds its
meetngs in commitee and the press is, of course, not

The 'Sitdown, Shutup and Watch
Film & New Media Festival' is the first

Festival committee member and
Evanston Gardens resident Ryan Tho-
mas was diagnosed with autism in 1993
and it was through film-making that he
found one of his biggest passions.
The 23-year-old completed a
number of workshops in film-making
in 2012 and he has since travelled to
regional areas to teach others with a
learning disability how to create films.
"My journey with the committee
commenced in January 2012 and I
started being a participant in commit-
tee meetings," Ryan said.
"Now I'm doing what I can and the
festival is getting really close, which is

Ryan helped create last year, a black
and white silent film called Zombie

land, Ireland, Israel, Germany, Canada
and Australia, so there's lots of diver-
