ED­I­TOR’S LET­TER

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - UP FRONT -

Here at we love to tell the sto­ries of all kinds of South Aus­tralians, and this week we have a cou­ple of great ex­am­ples — peo­ple whose con­tri­bu­tion is cru­cial, but of­ten taken for granted.

First-up is young AFL um­pire Craig Fleer. With­out pas­sion­ate peo­ple like him, there’d be no game. Yet some­times all he gets in re­turn is mind­less abuse. It doesn’t bother Craig though, be­cause he loves his footy (and has a thick skin).

Then there’s Leith Jenk­ins, a Royal Show stal­wart about to re­tire after 56 years. The Show is one of the most popular events in the state. But it wouldn't hap­pen with­out the de­vo­tion of stal­warts like Leith.
