down the project and later
vowing to electrify the line
from the city to Salisbury.
Mr Knoll criticised Mem-

being "strangely quiet on the
topic", describing the project
as "very dear" to the Schubert

"I gave (the ambulance officers)
my number, I said, 'call me up, to

Mr Doherty was also praised by
the woman's husband later that
day when he went to visit her at
the Gawler Hospital.
"Her husband came up to me

Mr Doherty said.

New name for elderly centre
GAWLER'S Elderly Centre
could be renamed after former
town mayor and South Aus-
tralian Liberal Party leader Dr
At its June meeting, the El-
derly Centre Advisory Commit-
tee recommended to council that
the centre, located on Fourteenth
Street, be renamed the 'Bruce Ea-
Dr Eastick is currently deputy
chair of the Elderly Centre Advi-
sory Committee but was not pres-
ent for the renaming discussions.
"Appreciative, but not expectant
of it," he said.
"I've been involved with (the
centre) in many ways over a long
period of time, but it came out of
the blue to me that that was the
intention of the people who had
been associated with the Elderly
Centre Advisory Committee."
The rename will need the ap-
proval of Gawler Council's elected
members to take effect.
At their last meeting, members
decided to defer the matter until

Dr Eastick joined Gawler Coun-

as mayor from 1968 to 1972.
From May 30, 1970, he was a
parliamentary member for over 23
years, acting as opposition leader
and speaker of the house, before
again serving as Gawler mayor for
seven years from 1993.
Dr Eastick has been heavily in-
volved at the Gawler Elderly Cen-
tre since it was established almost
40 years ago, namely through his
involvement with Gawler Care
