Quarry jobs saved
CEMENT manufacturer Adelaide
Brighton will buy Penrice Soda's
limestone quarry at Angaston, se-
curing the last remaining jobs of
the former soda ash supplier.
Forty employees work at the quarry,
which supplies raw material to Adelaide
Brighton's Angaston plant for lime and
off-white cement manufacture.
"The quarry represents a strong stra-
tegic fit for Adelaide Brighton by secur-
ing a high-quality marble deposit for
the supply of raw material," Adelaide
Brighton said in a statement.
Penrice Soda's chemical plant at Os-
borne is in liquidation after adminis-
trators McGrathNicol failed to lock in
a buyer for the combined operations
Most of the 95 employees at Osborne
lost their jobs as a result.
The sale, which is expected to con-
clude today, will see the quarry trans-

Local prepares for Variety Bash
GAWLER East man Larry Cavallaro will be
going that extra mile next month to raise
funds for sick children as part of the SA
Mr Cavallaro will cover 2901 kilometres with
his three team members when he sets off for
Sydney in his 23rd year of participating in the
The local man said he will be working
especially hard to raise money for the children's
charity Variety in honour of his old friend
and former SA Variety Bash chairman Doug
Lehmann, who died last month.
"Doug and I started bashing almost at the
same time," he said.
"We were long-time 'bashers' but Dougie and
I were friends before that because we worked
together in the wine industry way back in the
"The 80 per cent that are long-term bashers,
they'll all be pushing hard to raise as much
money as we can to make it a real winning
year in memory of Doug's contribution to the
Mr Cavallaro said his team was aiming to raise
$15,000 this year.
He, along with Hillbank man Peter Greig,
Evanston's Jim Buckoke and Brisbane's Anita
Jakins, will be outfitted in their traditional
Where's Wally gear for the event.
The team will also be bringing an additional
120-odd Wally shirts to convert bashers and
community members across Australia to the
"It's a lot of fun," Mr Cavallaro said.
"We usually have about 60 that we give out for
bashers and...then we've taken another 60 that
we give out, mostly to children, along the way.
Mr Cavallaro said the tradition was formed
more than a decade ago after his team got lost on
the way to the finish line.
"The officials welcomed us in when we finally
got to the finish line and they said 'here's car 500,
they're just a bunch of Wallies'," he recalled.
"Coming home from that, we thought we
could capitalise on that, so the following year we
went as Wallies."
The SA Variety Bashers, this year, will be
joining with other states to form the National
Bash, which runs every four years.
Mr Cavallaro said he was looking forward to
catching up with old friends.
"You meet up with people that you haven't
seen in four years and it's like you were talking to
them yesterday," he said.
Mr Cavallaro said, leading up to the event, he
has been working to get his 1964 International
dual cab ready to hit the road.
This year's bash will take off from the Victoria
Park Racecourse on August 9, travelling through
Bourke, Tamworth and the Hunter Valley
before finishing up in Sydney- where the bash
originated - on August 17.
