that goal successfully, with few regrets,''
Mr Thom said.

OF THE WEEK
PET The Bush re
It's a clear, darkening evening
From my house I can see part of the
Mount Lofty Ranges burning!
So from the people of my area
To the people in the hills
Please keep yourselves safe and free from harm
Until the bush re ames eventually calm
Rest assured we are praying and thinking of you
And please accept our best wishes too.
