150 YEARS AGO
GAS COMPANY...In accordance with a resolu�on to which
we alluded some weeks ago, Mr Hanson (brother to the
Chief Jus�ce), who has long been engaged erec�ng and
superintending gas works both in England and America,
met a number of gentlemen to consider the desirability of
forming a gas company for supplying Gawler and Kapunda
The Mayor of Gawler (Mr James Mar�n) had forwarded
circulars to most of the leading inhabitants of the town, and
about a dozen gentlemen met Mr Hanson, at Mr Muller's
Commercial Hotel, on Friday evening, the 10th inst.
Mr Hanson submi�ed his plans and proposi�ons, but the
scheme of an amalgamated company, in which Gawler and
Kapunda should join, did not seem to ﬁnd favour in the eyes
of those present, most persons being of the opinion that a
separate company for each town would be preferable.
100 YEARS AGO
GAWLER BOY SCOUTS...Sun-tanned and �red, yet healthy
and happy, the Gawler Boy Scouts returned to their homes
on New Year’s Day a�er spending a week in camp in the
vicinity of Balhannah.
The lads had an ideal camping place where drooping
willows hung over many trickling streams traversing through
valleys and hills.
Everything went oﬀ smoothly, and scoutmasters and scouts
enjoyed the life equally.

FINAL SERVICE AFTER SIX
YEARS AT TOD STREET...The
Rev. W. J. Staﬀord ended his
six-year term as Superintendent
Minister of Gawler Methodist
Circuit on Sunday evening when
he conducted his ﬁnal service
at Tod Street Church.
For the occasion, the Willaston and Gawler West churches
were closed and the congrega�ons combined.
A�er the service a farewell social was held in the hall,
a�ended by many civic and church leaders of the district.
$250,000 MALLALA FLOOD AID...Mallala District
Council has received $250,000 ﬂood relief from the Local
Government Disaster Fund, less than half what it needs to
repair damage from last year’s ﬂoods.
The $250,000 grant, announced by Primary Industries
Minister Mr Terry Groom, became available on Monday and
is part of a $915,000 aid package to eight ﬂood-aﬀected
councils in SA.
Mallala council's share is less than half of the $584,000 it
applied for late last year to cover roads and river banks
damaged from ﬂooding between August and November.

GOVERNMENT REVEALS BIG PICTURE FOR URBAN
DEVELOPMENT...A mirror image of Mawson Lakes is the
State Government's vision for a local parcel of land recently
included in the Urban Growth Boundary.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with The Bunyip last
Friday, minister for planning and urban development Paul
Holloway said developments of this nature were capable of
solving many of Gawler's current infrastructure problems.
"I would like to see Gawler East become a development
like some of the other ﬂagship developments, like Mawson
Lakes,” Mr Holloway said.
Barbecuing is not for me
I AM never one to specify gender roles
in our house, but after scorching two of
my fingers while barbecuing this week,
it is fair to say I am handing back the
As mentioned previously, I am no Gor-
don Ramsey in the kitchen, but for the sake
of actually needing to eat to stay alive, I
have a go.
Last week I tried something a little dif-
ferent, cooking on the barbecue -- I mean,
how hard could it be?
Turning the knob and slapping some
patties on the plate seemed pretty straight-
I only warmed the flat hotplate, and left
the grill side off, being that it was only
Matt and I in the house.
I very cautiously left the food to cook,
while dashing inside to make a quick gar-
den salad to go alongside.
I came back shortly after, pretty pleased
with the way things were looking.
But, it wasn't long before I realised that
Matt's meat patties were not cooking as
quickly as my vegie ones, and that they
needed to be squashed down a little to
cook through the centre.
I had left the spatula resting on the grill
side, and it seemed only natural to pick it
up with my right hand and use my left-
hand to press down on the metal and flat-
ten the patties.
Only split seconds had passed by the
time I realised the metal was actually blis-
tering hot, and I'd flung the spatula across
the back verandah.
I sprinted inside crying out in pain and
raced to the bathroom sink.
Matt followed closely behind to see
what was going on, and why I had let out
such a shriek.
I let the water run over my hand for
more than half an hour and then drowned
it in a bucket of water for over an hour
Despite my best efforts they burned
throughout the night, until I found a 'com-
fortable' upright, seated position with my
hand raised well above my head.
The following morning I woke, after
minimal sleep, with two blistered fingers
that, finally, were not painful.
After the chaos from that night before, I
decided Matt can keep the tongs -- the bar-
becue has well and truly rejected me.
Until next week, keep your glasses full.

This show produces some of the best in
British comedy in the form of a panel

Fielding, alongside their teams of guest
panellists, answer a series of questions
related to music during themed rounds.
That's the serious side, and then there's
plenty of banter.
