youths were charged before Mr. R. F. Newman, S.M., with
oﬀences involving shop breaking and larceny, receiving
stolen goods, illegal use of motor vehicles and carnal

of leniency on this occasion, severe penaltes would be
imposed if any of them appeared before him again.

TO OUR READERS...The present number of The Bunyip
is the last that will appear in its present form.
On the ﬁrst Saturday in January, The Bunyip will appear as
a broadsheet, double its present size, and will endeavour to
earn increased favour by increased utlity.
As a medium, for local news, The Bunyip hopes to be
largely patronised – Corporaton aﬀairs, District Council
meetngs of the neighbourhood, the proceedings of the
Local Court – will all occupy considerable space in our

LIFE'S NOW COOLER FOR BRAVE CALLAN...The hot
summer weather will no longer be a problem for 11-year-
old Callan Towers, thanks to the Lions Club of Gawler and
some other friends.
Just before the weather turned warmer the Lions Club
donated a new air-con-
ditoner so that Callan
could spend the summer
months in comfort.
Callan, of Richards
Avenue, Gawler West,
is one of about 300
people in the world who

BOOM TIME...A $20 billion boom of major projects is
predicted for South Australia, but locally a more residental-
based development boom has already begun.
In the last ﬁnancial year residental developments in the
Gawler Council region, followed closely by the Barossa
Council with a 42 per cent increase.
Light Council region experienced a drop in value, due to
high-value major developments in 2002-03.
THE WAR...The enemy is beaten.
The signal victories of Russia in the east, the success of
the Joﬀre atriton strategy in the west, and the facts that
Germany has all her forces in the ﬁeld and has failed in her
designs while the Allies have 5,000,000 troops in reserve
and training – with in additon almost illimitable resources
in men, material, and wealth are convincing proofs that, as
one German prisoner said, the Kaiser is ﬁghtng in despera-
ton on the oﬀ chance of a victory or some favorable hap-
pening to give him good terms of peace.

THE town of Tarlee came together
for a ceremony commemorating lo-
cal heroes on Remembrance Day
Vietnam veteran Colin Durdin gave
the address at the service and spoke of
his involvement in the war.
Tarlee has no recorded personnel
enlistments for the Vietnam War but
several soldiers who fought in the con-
flict, like Mr Durdin, have lived in
Tarlee for a time.
Mr Durdin voluntarily maintains the
Tarlee war memorial, where the service
Tarlee Primary School students
and teachers attended the service to
pay their respects and learn more of
the history of Tarlee's involvement
Meanwhile, Gawler's Immanuel
Lutheran School was also among
those to commemorate Remembrance
Day, participating in a service at
SANDY Creek Uniting
Church will hold a com-
memorative service this
Sunday to celebrate its 110th
The service will reflect upon
the history of the church and
up to 100 people are expected
The church has been well-
maintained over the years and,
although it is small, it has a
wealth of history.
Still nestled among the origi-
nal pine trees to this day, the
opening service was held on
November 23, 1904, after a
number of local men donated
three months of their time to
construct the building.
Church secretary Leslee Carle
has been involved with the con-
gregation since 1976 and said
Sunday's service would be much
larger than usual.
"We normally only have be-
tween 16 and 20 on a Sunday,"
Mrs Carle said.
"We've actually got quite a
few descendants of the people
that donated to the land attend-
ing and descendants of the per-
son whose home was used for
the services before the church
Prior to 1904, services were
held in the home of Maria An-
nie Moore, with about 60 peo-
ple attending each week.
Eventually, land for the
church was donated by James
Sims, who owned the nearby
The church has seen several
changes over the years, includ-
ing the remodelling of the
high pulpit worship area in the
1980s and a stained-glass win-
dow and bell installed from the
former Gawler Congregational
Another addition has been
the Bush Chapel, which
was completed in 2010 and
built on the old tennis court
Attendance numbers are also
among the changes.
"Numbers have decreased,
but they are slowly increasing,"
Mrs Carle said.
"We do a number of activities
every year and we have some-
thing every month to try and
include people from outside the
