HALLOWEEN is just a week
away and Yorke Peninsula's
budding witches, vampires and
ghosts are gearing up for a
night of ghoulish fun.
More and more Australians
are choosing to celebrate
Halloween each year, and
Yorke Peninsula is no excep-
tion with costumes flying off
the shelves at local retailers.
However, while some people
are busy carving pumpkins and
planning festivities, others
believe Halloween is an
which has little relevance south
of the equator.
"Not remotely interested in
yet another American tradition
being transplanted here for no
good reason or result," Brett
Lawrie commented on the
YPCT's Facebook post.
"Very much against the idea
of sending kids to knock on
doors requiring a treat or a
(light-hearted) threat if some-
thing isn't given."
Other residents believe it is
an opportunity to have some
fun and Halloween shouldn't
be taken too seriously.
"We put decorations up each
year, make themed food and
try to make it a fun occasion for
the kids," Kadina mother
Melanie Aitchison said.
"The boys love getting
dressed up and going trick or
treating, just around the block.
"Most people are really good
about it and give them fruit or
lollies; it's all just a bit of fun."
Innes Trading Post and
Rhino's Tavern closed
THE iconic Innes Park
Trading Post and Rhino's
Tavern is closed, just as the
influx of summer visitors
to the area is looming.
A statement from the
Department of Environ-
ment, Water and Natural
Resources confirmed the
Trading Post and Rhino's
had ceased trading as the
lessees were no longer in a
position to operate the
"The department is
working with the lessees
towards a resolution, with
visitors to Innes National
Park able to purchase fuel
and other supplies from
retailers in Marion Bay
before they enter the park,"
a spokesperson said.
Lessees Sophie and
Russell Gray have operated
the businesses for the past
When contacted yester-
day (Monday) the Grays
said, while very disap-
pointed they have had to
cease trading, technically
the business has been sold.
Issues involving mainte-
nance on the building,
which is owned by the
department, need to be
addressed before the com-
mercial lease can be trans-
The couple has been
working with DEWNR to
resolve the deadlock.
TRICK OR TREAT... Kadina brothers Byron and George Aitchison
love getting into the spirit of Halloween and plan to go trick or
treating this year.

"I THEN plan to introduce a new
motion to further investigate the gov-
ernment's constantly-evolving policies
on marine parks and the potentially
devastating impact," Mr Hood said.
Last week, the Liberal Party
released its official policy on marine
parks should it be elected.
"Whilst the Liberal Party strongly
supports the creation of marine parks,
we do not agree with the areas pin-
pointed by the government as no-take
or sanctuary zones," Shadow
Environment Minister Steven
"We have been listening to the
recreational and commercial fishing
industry, regional communities and
marine experts who are overwhelm-
ingly saying marine parks are impor-
tant but these no-take zones are
incredibly damaging and not support-
ed by scientific evidence."
said the Liberals'
policy would follow a 'threats based
determination' of any protection
zones, while remaining committed to
protecting the marine environment
through the aquatic reserve provisions
of the Fisheries Management Act.
The Liberal Party has also called on
Mr Caica to wait for the report from
the select committee before making

Do you celebrate Halloween or take
your kids trick or treating?
"We decorated our house, carved pumpkins and got dressed up on Halloween
then gave treats to trick or treaters! The kids who came to our house last year
loved it and it was a lot of fun!" --- Jess Lehmann
"I personally would prefer not to celebrate it, as it is an American custom,
but when children ring the doorbell, I'm a softy! LOL." --- Sandi Taylour
"Nope, but my kids keep getting invited to Halloween parties. It's actually
an Irish tradition that they took to the USA." --- Trudes Berryman
"Why take your kids out only for them to be disappointed because no one has
lollies for them as hardly any one does trick or treating." --- Christopher Blott
"I think there should be friendly streets which are prepared with treats and
you know they are the streets to go to. Kids love it." --- Michelle Hank
