Editorial 07/08/17 – Highs and lows of island life this week
Two great highlights this week. The first was theopening of the SALA art exhibition at the National WineCentre in Adelaide, with 19 island artists and their works featured.
Titled Kangaroo Island Wetlands and Waterways, allthe works depict links to water.
The exhibition runs until August 25, so go in for alook when you’re over on the mainland.
The other very entertaining event was the launch ofKI Players ‘Fool’s Paradise’.
A highly amusing and intriguing plot, with action aplenty- and the good news is that there are performanceson Friday and Saturday night and the Sunday matineeacross this coming weekend.
And as an added draw-card, the young KI Players willpresent Super Hero Support Group too.
Don’t miss out and be the only one who hasn’t seenit!
Difficult times ahead for many of our island businessesaffected by the voluntary administration of BJJarrad – no doubt we’ll all know more after the creditors’meeting next Tuesday, but it would seem questions needto be answered at the highest level as to why a governmentcontract was awarded to a business with previousfinancial issues.
Island workers deserve better than to provide theirservices and then not get paid. Let’s hope the paymentoffer from the administrators goes at least some way towardsmeeting the deficit.
On a sad note, we have heard of the passing of well-knownand much-loved local Shirley Morrison.
The Islander and staff extend our sincere condolencesto her family and friends.
