With three new spokes in the back wheel of my
bike, and three or more ounces added to my
belly, I got my blood pumping as I pedalled along the
street to head North into Gawler along Adelaide
It was Sunday morning, the late winter sunshine
filled with early blossom and the sharp whip-crack-
snap of a swooping Magpie’s beak. I’d forgotten
about that as I turned to follow the race course into
the chill of a slight breeze. Up ahead, this side of the
Mill Bridge, I was met by the puffing and sweating
faces of people participating in a Gawler Fun Run,
their looks telling me they were totally absorbed in
their actions, the landing and touching off of their
running shoes keeping to the rhythm of their
swinging hands, arms bent at the elbows like
The river was full and provided a pleasant view as
I crossed over the bridge into Julian Terrace, where
the fresh faces of other runners and groups of
walkers neared then disappeared behind my left
shoulder as I pedalled towards the centre of town
and Church Hill.
Tomorrow I will say a few words for the family of a
man who had become a part of Gawler’s modern
social history. He had lived for 86 years, now that
time had ended. And I know the words I am to say
will soon vanish into the air. The days, weeks and
months will swiftly pass. And all those who will hear
those words and me who spoke them, will also
disappear from the town’s footpaths, shopping
complexes, cafes, restaurants and bars. I pedal into
Murray Street, glad of the moment I am living.
For me to be alive, active and with hope in your
heart is what it’s all about.
Under the verandah of the Prince Albert Hotel, an
hour from opening time, two young women
drinking from bottles of flavoured vodka.
I ride into the distance, narrowly missing an
opening car door.

OVER the last few months local GPs have seen
their fair share of swine flu (H1N1 influenza) with
some of them experiencing the H1N1 pandemic
flu first hand.
While the swine flu 2009 pandemic has been
mild in most cases it has been severe in some
people and has led to around 4500
hospitalisations, hundreds of intensive care unit
admissions and has been associated with 170
deaths (10 of them being children) in Australia
since May-September 2009.
The free H1N1 vaccination program which
commenced on Wednesday, September 30 focuses
on protecting those who are most at risk of
exposure to the swine flu virus, such as health
care workers, and those who are more vulnerable
to severe health complications from swine flu.
High risk people include: Pregnant women,
people with chronic health conditions such as
asthma, heart and lung disease, cancer, diabetes,
kidney disease, neurological disease and people
with suppressed immune systems, people with
moderate to severe obesity, health care workers,
indigenous people and parents and guardians of
infants under six-months-old.
Tracy Maynard, Immunisation Coordinator for
the Barossa General Practice Network, says those
individuals at high risk should contact their local
GP as soon as possible. At present, Panvax H1N1
vaccine is only available to children over 10 years-
of-age and adults.
“If you have had the swine flu (and not treated
with an antiviral medicine Tamiflu/Relenza) it is
likely you have immunity and do not need the
Panvax H1N1 vaccine,” Tracy said.
“But, you can only know for certain if you were
tested for it - that is, if you had a nose and throat
swab sent to the laboratory and the test was
