"BAN THE PRESS" QUESTION RAISED... The
Gawler Local Board of Health sat long into the night at
the last meetng, to discuss the queston of whether the
business of the Board meetngs should be suppressed.
The queston was raised when councillor D.A. Harrison
critcised a recent report in “The Bunyip” telling of
inspectons of a Murray street delicatessen.
Cr. Harrison said ‘The Bunyip’ in failing to name the
partcular oﬀender, had cast dispersions on all such
businesses in Murray Street.
Councillors were divided on whether such reports
should be published, or whether the press should be
allowed to atend board meetngs.
Cr. B.C. Eastck said the press had every right to be

THE GREAT NORTH ROAD NUISANCE... This
remarkably choice sample of governmental blundering
- one of the most stupid, if not unprincipled, acts of
repudiaton and short-sightedness that ever silly or
self-interested senators and an over-cunning cabinet
perpetrated - has at length reached its culminatng point
of damage to all kinds of interests - agricultural, pastoral,
and trading, and is felt by them to be no longer within
the limits of endurance, even by so patent a people as
the progeny of grumbling but long-suﬀering John Bull.

GAWLER'S generosity has already
surpassed last year's when it comes
to the Red Shield Appeal.
The Salvation Army's doorknock
weekend was held across the country
on the weekend of May 24 and 25, and
formed part of the broader Red Shield
Appeal running until the end of this
Early results show at least $16,000
has already been raised in the local area
from collections taken by volunteers
over the doorknock weekend.
The figure surpasses the $14,692
generated in Gawler over the length of
last year's entire appeal.
Gawler Salvation Army Corps of-
ficer Captain Darren Cox said he is
overwhelmed by Gawler's generosity
and the brilliant effort demonstrated
by collection volunteers.
"We are going to be between $16,000
and $17,000, which is an amazing re-
sponse in these difficult times," he
"People have really supported us, so
we are over the moon.
"...I just want to thank the whole
community of Gawler."
The Gawler Salvation Army also
raised $900 towards the appeal by
holding a movie night last month.
The doorknock weekend raised near-
ly $242,500 for The Salvation Army
across the state, with about $4.97 mil-
lion raised nationally.
SA has so far raised $500,000 to-
wards the appeal and is on its way to
reaching its $800,000 target.

Solar support helps local groups
TWO Gawler sporting
clubs have recently installed
new solar hot water sys-
tems through a program
funded by Gawler Council
and the Commonwealth
Willaston Football Club and
Gawler Bowling Club have
benefited from the Local Gov-
ernment Energy Efficient Pro-
gram, which provides $24 mil-
lion of grants to local councils
throughout Australia to install
energy-efficient hot water sys-
tems in council-owned build-
ings and community facilities.
The number of community
facilities in the Gawler area was
greater than the number of hot
water services council could
purchase with its grant alloca-
tion, so local organisations were
invited to respond to an expres-
sion of interest to ensure an eq-
uitable application process.
Based on the response from
local organisations, Gawler
Bowling Club and Willaston
Football Club demonstrated
the best efficiency gains and
were selected to upgrade their
current hot water systems.
Willaston Football Club
president Wayne Smith said his
club would benefit from its new
hot water system.
"We use a lot of hot water for
the players' showers," he said.
These new hot water services
improve our energy efficiency
by over 40 per cent.
"This will mean substantial
cost savings for our club."
Gawler Bowling Club presi-
dent Ian Goodrich said the club
was grateful for being chosen to
receive the grant.
"The cost savings from hav-
ing a more efficient hot water
system means that we can look
at doing some projects that we
couldn't afford to do in the
past," he said.
Council contributed over
$5000 towards the program,
along with a significant amount
of other support, including li-
aising with the clubs, writing
the grant application, procur-
ing the works and finalising the
Gawler Mayor Brian Sambell
said the council was setting an
example to other councils by
encouraging and supporting en-
ergy efficiency within the com-
"As a gesture of goodwill,
council offered this program to
local clubs and organisations in-
stead of installing new hot water
systems in council-used build-
ings," he said.
"This means that commu-
nity organisations would receive
financial benefits from more
energy-efficient hot water sys-
