SIXTY ONE per cent of Wakefield participants in the same-sex marriage postal plebiscite voted in favour of marriage
equality, almost mirroring the 61.6 per cent "yes" vote nationwide, The Bunyip reported in November. A private member's
bill, co-sponsored by both major parties, to legalise same-sex marriage, was introduced to parliament on the same day the
result was announced, November 15. It passed the Senate on November 29, 43 votes to 12, and was passed in the House of
Representatives on December 7, to come into effect on December 9. The first weddings under Australian law took place on
December 16, 2017.
Wake eld delivers 'yes' vote

Birthday in style
OVER 150 guests gathered to celebrate Bruce Eastick's 90th birthday,

Wall to come down
FOLLOWING negotiations with council, lasting several years, Immanuel
Lutheran School was finally given the green light to remove its crumbling,
heritage-listed wall along Lyndoch Road.
THE State Government announced it would spend $4 million installing traffic
lights at the notorious Tulloch Road/Main North Road intersection. Member
for Light Tony Piccolo congratulated the local community for mobilising to

Libs shift focus towards Gawler East link road extension...
your house YOUR HOME
LIBERAL candidate for Light
Karen McColl has launched a
petition, ahead of next year's
state election, to have the im-
pending Gawler East link road
(GELR) utilise Tiver Road,
instead of Potts Road, as its
southern entry point.
It comes as residents affected
by the GELR alignment argue the
community has been misled by
Gawler Council into believing the
road will depart Main North Road
from Tiver Road, rather than
Potts Road as currently planned.
Pages 2 and 3
IN early December, state political candidate and former federal senator Nick Xenophon challenged Member for Schubert
Stephan Knoll to a debate in his local electorate, through The Bunyip. The SA-Best party leader issued the challenge after
Mr Knoll used a speech in parliament to question his political motivations and his supposed inaction on his pet issue,
poker machines. Mr Knoll, later, accepted Mr Xenophon's challenge for a debate in his electorate of Schubert, which will
be held early this year and facilitated by The Bunyip.
Mr X calls for showdown
Lions, RSL join forces
SOUTH Gawler Football Club and the Gawler RSL Sub Branch merged together
in a historic decision. The two clubs, while keeping their constitutions and
identities, formed a joint community club consultative body.
SOUTH Gawler Cricket Club export Travis Head put another feather in his cap
after he was named as the captain of the Adelaide Strikers.
Kittle development reaches final hurdle
GAWLER Council adopted a Gawler Development Plan amendment to
rezone land in Kudla, from rural to commercial. The decision -- one of three
Development Plan Amendments finalised in December -- will allow Peter
Kittle Motor Company to establish a dealership and showroom there, with the
development touted to create as many as 100 jobs.
Vinh ends year on perfect note
TRINITY College year 12 student Vinh Nguyen achieved a perfect Australian
Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) score, as local students learned of their SACE
results in December. Vinh, who returned a 99.95 result, was one of five Trinity
students in recent years to attain the perfect score.

Crisis talks regarding the future of the $55 million Gawler East link road were held at Gawler Council
chambers last night. The meeting comes after Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Stephen Mullighan
went on the record this week stating council risks having its entire funding stripped if it cannot
decide on an alignment that meets budget constraints. Stories pages 4 and 5.

from Gawler Council.
