Hello Readers,Yankalilla regional news September 2013
Another tight squeeze to get it all in this month. All we have left ourselves is this little corner of the page.
The main event for the month is the Wirrina Bluegrass Festival. Now in its second year, the annual festival should be well worth a look and a listen! See page 2 for details.
Coming up on 5th October is the 131st Annual Yankalilla Show. There will be all the usual entertainment and exhibitions but there is always something new as well. Get along and catch up with everyone you know as they will probably be doing the same thing. Even try the new Dunny Block! See pages 10 and 11 for more details.
The water debate may have come to an end, for the time being anyway. The aftermath you can find in the ‘letters’ section and the Council Loop section, in case you missed anything.
Until next issue...

Hello Readers,Yankalilla Regional News August 29013
We are right in the heart of winter, hence another winter shot for the cover. Thanks Gillian. Bad news for Lebanese cuisine lovers at Normanville, Family Ties takeaway are having a holiday for most of August while it is quiet. If you are quick you can get your fix before they go on 5th August. But right next door Min Palace is celebrating their Anniversary during August with some great meal deals. Both their adverts are on page 12.

The Yankalilla Show is looming on the horizon again and this year they have a brand new ‘Dunny’ block. This year the queues for relief should be a lot shorter! It has been years in the pipeline, but has finally been completed by Catalyst homes (advert on back cover) and everyone is welcome to it’s official first flush on Friday 9th August . See page 6 for details.

A hot topic at the moment is the proposed STEDS privatisation. See page 14 for letters on the subject. If you have any views on this subject and how is will affect the community then you need to speak up now or forever hold your tongues on the subject. We the community have been asked by Council for our say, so use this opportunity or potentially lose a community resource to privatisation. This could be an attempt to rein in years of financial mismanagement that we have inherited as suggested in various correspondence to the editor, due to space restrictions not all items have been published.

The very successful Bluegrass Festival will once again be all go at Wirrina, see page 3 for details.
Live music lovers can catch Sonic Bomb at the Yankalilla Hotel on Saturday 17th August and
we will see you there!
