Adelaide | The State Government’s favoured position on South Australia’s time zone is to shift half an hour forward to align with Eastern Standard Time.
However, it says it still has some thorny details to sort out.
Those complications include potential affects on airlines due to Adelaide Airport’s curfew, and the impact on the far west coast community – which may even get its own “unofficial” local time zone.
The Government today released two reports from its community consultation on the future of South Australia’s time zone, with Premier Jay Weatherill saying the process had skewered some myths, while also raising new issues.
He said that after considering the reports the Government favoured a shift to EST, “however more work needed to b Full Story »
Adelaide | Food trucks would be effectively excluded from all city squares, bar one, under an Adelaide City Council proposal to be voted on tonight.
A council committee last week recommended that the 25-metre zone separating mobile food vendors from bricks-and-mortar food vendors be expanded to 50 metres.
InDaily understands this means all city squares, other than Victoria Square, would become virtual no-go zones for mobile food vendors.
Council regulations prohibit more than three mobile food vendors using Victoria Square at any time.
The majority of North Terrace, and long stretches of the most popular city streets now open to food trucks, would also be cleared of mobile vendors under the proposal, because of the proximity of “bricks and mortar” food businesses.

Committee for Adelaide board member Ian Smith yesterday outlined the case for the formation of the state of Central Australia.
Smith, also on the NT Government’s economic development panel and the partner at lobbying firm Bespoke Approach, said the arrangement could be a boon to SA’s sluggish economy and argued that the two regions were al Full Story »
PHILIP WHITE REVIEWS | Whitey gets trippy tasting the latest old-vine offerings from Langmeil.
It’s now four years since Richard and Shirley Lindner, and their sons Paul and James, took total ownership of the old Langmeil winery at Tanunda.
One of the many Barossa wineries that had fallen into disrepair by 1980, it was saved by cousins Karl and Richard Lindner and the Bitter family. While its ramble of old ironstone sheds looked certain to last another century or two, it was the vineyard that provided the greatest challenge: a few yellowing scraps of documentation indicate this was planted in 1843 … could they harness and retrain founder Christian Auricht’s old Shiraz block?
The vines were an unattended scramble, with canes spreading across multiple rows, the old trunks r Full Story »
