AN altercation between two women on Gawler's
main street yesterday has resulted in one of them
sustaining minor injuries.
The incident occurred at around 12.30pm at the
Calton Road/Murray Street intersection, with the in-
jured woman seeking private medical treatment as a

Gawler company not the 'wurst'
ONE Gawler smallgoods com-

In fact, Wintulichs Smallgoods
is going from strength to strength,
building a loyal following in South
Australia, as well as creating export
opportunities both interstate and
The company has secured a
contract to supply its 'Big Boy
Bier Stick' range in BWS outlets
throughout the country, including
Queensland, New South Wales,
Victoria, Western Australia and
Wintulichs national sales manag-
er Chris Matz said more than 600
BWS stores around Australia were
stocking the company's bier stick
range, which comes in smokey bar-
becue, hot chilli, garlic mettwurst
and chorizo flavours.
"It's our first genuine national
contract, so everyone is pretty hap-
py here," he said.
"With BWS it's one of those
things that if it's successful, it will
be around forever and a day."
Mr Matz said the contract would
open up more local jobs, giving the
company an opportunity to add to
its 26-strong workforce.
"With the big boy stick, on the
packing of the first initial order, we
had to bring in seven extra casuals,"
"Depending on our orders and
how they grow, we are bringing
more people in.
"We mainly bring casual workers
in, but once those orders grow, the
casuals can go up to full time."
Wintulichs is a proud Gawler
company which has been produc-
ing a range of award-winning small-
goods since 1909.
With a strong leaning towards
its historic German traditions, the
company has a range of over 40
products, including their famous
garlic mettwurst, pepperoni, kran-
sky, bier sticks, ham on the bone,
beef jerky, short-cut bacon and
"All the meat is 100 percent Aus-
tralian...we ferment it, smoke it and
then cook it," Mr Matz said.
As well as BWS stores,
Wintulichs also stocks products in
South Australian Woolworths and
"Our Coles business has tripled...
and our long-term business with
Woolworths has always been con-
sistent," Mr Matz said.
It seems the sky is the limit for the
company, which has set its sights on
exporting its products overseas.
"It's all about finding and sourc-
ing the right customer," Mr Matz
"The sort of business we are look-
ing for is someone who respects our

Anzac Day service to go ahead
It’s our ﬁrst
genuine national contract,
so everyone is pretty
happy here. With BWS it’s
one of those things that
if it’s successful, it will be
around forever and a day.
"I have been assured that
there will be a memorial service
(in Pioneer Park)," she said.
"To me, it's all about work-

said the mayor's statement was

Mayor Redman has called for
all parties in the war memorial
debate to 'cease fire' and refocus
their collective energies on this
year's dawn service.
"We must find ways to put
aside our differences regard-
ing the Gawler South memo-

our community can come to-
gether and work with the local
sub-branch RSL members, the
Australian Defence Force, our

branch of the National Trust
and state RSL, to provide advo-
cacy and support for a whole-
of-town commemoration of the
Gallipoli landing," she said.
"That's my priority, council's
priority and, indeed, it should
be all our shared priority, as it
is now only 14 weeks away un-

Mayor Redman said the is-
sue was now so divisive and all
consuming, that everyone was
losing sight of what this year's
were all about.
Gawler RSL vice-presi-
dent Paul Little last week said
most members were in favour
of proceeding with plans to
relocate the dawn service to the
RSL clubrooms, but a formal
decision would not be reached
until a members' meeting this
