Generations of Farming
Dealing extensively with primary producers,
we've well and truly learnt that for many people
on the land, not only is the family farm a
livelihood, but it's also a way of life. For many
farmers, there's also a feeling of responsibility
for the land that has often been owned by the
family for generations.
Add to this the very large cost of younger
family members looking to purchase land to
start their own farming activities, and it quickly
becomes apparent that succession planning
for farming families necessarily involves careful
consideration of a number of important issues.
For example, here are just a few:
• Do mum and dad sell their farm or pass it on
to their children?
• How can the children afford to buy enough
land to be viable?
• How will mum and dad generate a retirement
• What about capital gains tax and stamp
Of course, at any given point there's also the
question of just how much is the farming property

Interesting Facts... 'The Wake'
In early Anglo Saxan culture, 'The Wake'
was held for three days BEFORE
the deceased person was buried.
Not having the medical knowledge we
have today, they wanted to make sure
the person did not 'Wake'.
Why... Most people drank from tankards
made of pewter... which leaked lead...
which caused coma.

RESIDENTS in the Evanston area will be
feeling switched on following an upgrade
to the suburb's electricity supply.
SA Power Networks has begun upgrading
existing power lines in Evanston Gardens,
Evanston Park and Evanston South to ensure
the reliability and security of the area's electric-
Works will include the installation of a new
underground 11,000kV power line and up-
grading the local overhead network.
The existing overhead network in Railway
Crescent, Angle Vale Road and Coventry Road
will be upgraded as part of the project, with
some poles being replaced.
One new pole will be positioned near the
corner of Clark and Coventry roads.
Underground cabling civil works and trench-
ing will be carried out to install conduits for
the undergrounding of power lines along Para,
Dawson and Dysart roads, under the Gawler
Bypass and in Greening Drive.
A new switching cubicle will be installed
near Trinity College, on Greening Drive, with
necessary power outages in the area to be kept
to a minimum.
SA Power Networks has been liaising with
Gawler Council and the proposed works have
been planned and designed to ensure the best
route for the cabling and to minimise effects
on residents and traffic flow.
Work has started this month on the Evan-
ston substation and further updates will be
provided as time lines are confirmed.

projects that address locations with the

Both the Stebonheath and Angle Vale
road intersections with Dalkeith Road were
also mentioned as needing attention.

NEW wire rope safety bar-
riers installed on the Main
North Road between Gawler
and Munno Para are expect-
ed to prevent seven serious
and fatal injury accidents in
the next decade.
The claim has been made by
Road Safety Minister and Mem-

was responding to claims that
the ropes are a safety threat to

Tiver roads, the barriers were
installed as a result of a 2012
study by the Department of

tween 2000 and 2012 there
were three fatal, six serious in-

Minister Piccolo said.
"They were mainly because
of run-off-road crashes within
the central median.

vent these types of crashes and,

"Given the crash history
along this section of Main
North Road, we expect that
they will prevent seven serious

minor casualty crashes in the

The safety barriers are de-
signed to deflect vehicles while
having low-maintenance costs.
