The South Eastern Times : March 7th 2016
2 OPINION MUCH of the charm of Beachport is derived from an assortment of buildings which date back to its early days as a trading port in the 1870s. Among them are the original police station and cells, wool and grain store, Anglican Church, customs house, school, hotels, railway station, butcher shop, workers’ accommodation and private homes. There is also Lanky’s Well, which was dug for water for horses used by police and the recently upgraded 1970s era monument which commemorates the first loss of life on Australian soil due to enemy action OUR VIEW during World War II. Given this rich history, it may come as a surprise that Beachport only has three entries on the State Heritage List. They are the customs house, wool and grain store (now the National Trust Museum) and the jetty. Wattle Range Council is taking a fresh look at the heritage of Beachport with a local advisory committee and out of town experts providing advice. The high level of interest in Beachport’s heritage was shown last year when there were 13 nominations for the eight community positions on council’s advisory committee. Various forums will be held this weekend as part of the process of assessing Beachport’s heritage and the input of the community will be valued. It is important to state that something being “old” is not the only criteria. For example, the new Bonnies@ Beachport apartments could be TALKING TO THE TIMES What do you think of the placement of meat baits in National Parks to control foxes?

Elizabeth Groom Committee member of the Southend Progress Association Sports day prompts family fun and their strong family bonds are impressive. MOIRA NEAGLE Guest columnist I FIRST met Mary Hamilton when I was appointed principal of Kangaroo Inn Area School. Frank Boylan took it upon himself to take me on tour prior to the start of the school year, to visit some of the matriarchs of the Kangaroo Inn Area School community. One stop was at Mary Hamilton’s place. She no longer had children at the school but her family had been amply represented over the years in the school’s student population. On meeting Mary, I immediately warmed to her. She was welcoming and genuinely interested in me, as well as being a staunch supporter of the school. I have been a long admirer of the spirit and bon homme of the Hamilton family. There is a strong sense of fun amongst them, their curious preponderance for nicknames rather than actual names is comical Have your say. The South Eastern Times values your opinion. If you have a view or wish to comment on any community issue we would like to hear from you. This last aspect of the family is particularly played out in December of each year when they celebrate their mother’s birthday. An all of family and extended family event is planned. These tend to be rather complex in their organization and execution, and participation must be highly amusing. For a few years, car rallies were the go. Teams were formed, cryptic clues devised and competition ran high as cars roamed. I believe the format was changed last December and a sports day was organised instead. The discus was a hardened cow pat. There were trophies awarded, one for “the most improvement required”. Mary had a tough year health wise last year and I can imagine that she would have been in her element with all her family at the Hamiltons’ sports day with members taking the competition oh, so seriously and the convivial play producing much laughter on all fronts. May the merriment persist. Please write to: The Editor PO Box 22 Millicent SA 5280 Fax 8733 4341 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Preference will be given to letters less than 200 words.

FIONA HEIN Millicent There must be a better way of controlling foxes. NARELLE UNMEOPA Millicent I don’t like foxes and I don’t like poisons. People should keep their dogs away from National Parks. considered for inclusion due to such factors as its design by leading Adelaide architect Ian Hannaford and its status as Beachport’s first 4.5 star accommodation. On the other hand, some of the colonial era buildings don’t meet the criteria for the State Heritage List as they have been modified in a significant way. Perhaps some official recognition could be made for the foreshore house, which was the holiday home for Hollywood stars Bryan Brown and Rachel Ward during the filming of the Sweet Talker film almost 30 years ago.
