Representatives from the South Australian Historical Trust were abuzz with excitement this morning when a group of local divers uncovered a waterlogged shipping crate just off the coast of Goat Island, near the town of Robe.

When brought ashore, the crate was revealed to contain a waterlogged but otherwise structurally intact, hand-carved replica of the Dragon Throne of the Chinese Emperors, which dates back to the Qing Dynasty.
"We believe that this item was part of a larger shipment carried by one of the first few Chinese merchant vessels that visited South Australia in the mid 1800s, but was dislodged from the vessel due to rough tides or a storm. While this item did not belong to the Chinese Imperial Family, the quality of the woodwork and level of care that was obviously put into its construction are proof enough that this item deserves to be carefully restored and put on display for connoisseurs of Chinese craftsmanship to enjoy."
The item is expected to be put on display at the Museum of South Australia in the coming months.

Doctor Matthew Jiao found dead in Hilton Hotel room (05/06/2018)
Hotel staff at the Hilton Hotel had a daunting experience this morning as a routine room clean turned into the room clean of nightmares. When the room attendant entered he was met with the horrific scene that he called a scene right out of a horror movie.
Preliminary investigation shows that Doctor Jiao was prepared for some sort of incident to happen as he had emptied his bank accounts, secured flights out of the country to Argentina and had already flown his family out late last week. Police also seized a semi auto assult rifle and 250 rounds for the weapon along with 2 side arms, both with suppressors. Forensic evidence suggests that both weapons were fired at the scene yet no fired bullets were found at the scene. SAPOL said earlier in a statement that Major crimes is putting together a Task Force to catch what they are calling The Surgeon Slasher.
Investigators: Faulty gas heaters to blame for InterContinental explosion (30/05/2018)
EVIDENCE retrieved from the scene of the blast has led investigators to determine that Saturday's disastrous explosion was caused by a gas leak from a faulty supply of propane-powered gas heaters that were not installed correctly nor up to current safety regulations.
Although the manufacturer has not yet been named, speculation is pointed towards the Chinese or Korean manufacturing industry. The reputation of the prestigious and world-renowned 'InterContinental' chain of 5-star hotels has so far been flawless, but there's no denying that this tragic incident will be a stain on their records for many decades to come.
A free counselling service for family members and loved ones of the deceased is being offered by the hotel chain with a memorial in the works for the near future.
An internet website has also been set up with a list of names and photographs of the deceased and is available at RememberingTheLost.info

IT was a scene out of an action movie. Officers in full body armor carrying assault weapons and riot shields, police dogs and even a tactical response vehicle were deployed late this afternoon in the otherwise uninteresting regional town of Whyalla. They quickly mobilized and converged on two different locations, performing breach and clear tactics and rushing in with guns drawn.
A brief firefight ensued as officers battled with several members of the Vanguards MC at what is now believed to have been their regional headquarters. Nine members were killed by police with five others taken into custody. A number of motorcycles, weapons and cash exceeding $25000 were seized from the scene. Police later seized a large cache of homemade weapons, improvised firebombs, 9.5kg of methamphetamines, twenty kilograms of marijuana and cash totalling half a million dollars from the other address – believed to be a backup safe house/stash location for the gang.
Rural police were seen celebrating and even cheering on the STAR officers as they returned with the captured members in custody. The captured gang members are facing steep punishments and almost certainly a lifetime in prison.
It’s believed that between three to five remaining members are still at large in the area, with the gang’s leader, known as ‘Hawk’ still evading police custody.
Detective Jack Mitchell of SAPOL’s Major Crimes Unit was on the scene to give us this exclusive report. “Yeah, we’re all just really happy that we’ve finally gotten these *bleep*ing bastards.

Locally made energy drink predicted to dominate in 2018 (08/01/2018)
Although targeted by thieves early last month, local South Australian microbrewery Blue Phoenix Pty Ltd has announced a bold new plan for 2018. Citing the popularity of their flagship energy drink Mint Eye, Blue Phoenix co-founder Krystian Młynarski announced this morning that their next target for distribution would be the pubs, clubs and cafes of Adelaide.
"We're extremely proud of the reception we've received from the student population, in that this drink is like none other they've had before. I've had people come up to me on the street and thank me for giving them the boost they needed to get through their exams. It's awesome stuff and I couldn't be any more glad that in this day and age, a true-blue South Aussie business like ours can stand up to those global companies and show them that customers are proud of their local businesses and are willing to support them. The next step is to reach out to other local businesses and also get them onboard and working with us. I can tell you that we've got plans to expand later this year and we hope to be able to give back to the community by employing as many South Aussies as we can. We're committed to that goal." Competitors are sceptical of the decision, with many believing that the fad of Mint Eye will die down as operating costs and expenses rise.
Mint Eye is expected to launch in limited quantities at local IGA supermarkets and independent retailers from the 22nd of this month.

Just days ahead of Saturday's remembrance service at Semaphore Beach, the unthinkable has happened. Three children from the well-known Elingston family have gone missing in what appears to be a copycat case of the Ashbury disappearances fifty years ago.

Witnesses have reported seeing a 'handsome well-dressed young-looking' man with the children. A search party was conducted on the scene but was unable to locate the suspect. Police have urged anyone with any possible information to come forward and help identify this man.

Ashbury disappearances: 50th anniversary nears (07/10/2017)
THE 21st of October has traditionally been a sombre day of remembrance for Charles and Emily Ashbury.
Fifty years ago, their four children disappeared without a trace from popular Semaphore Beach without a trace. The whereabouts of Martha (9), Graham (7), Kenneth (10) and Nancy (6) were never determined, nor were any remains ever discovered. Ahead of the 50th Anniversary, the South Australian Police are putting out the call for any new leads or potential witnesses to come forth.
Police Commissioner Lindsay Davidson had this to say on the matter: "It's just really tragic, you know. Fifty years have past and these poor parents still have no information about what happened to their children. No parent would ever want this. We're asking for anyone with any possible information to come forth and contact us."
Although Charles and Emily split in 1982, neither of them have given up the search for their children. "We just want some closure. We know our children aren't coming home. Please, if anyone has any information, please please come forth."

She lost 7 Kilos in less than 3 days, How she did it will shock you! (11/03/2017)
Eliza Smith single mother of 3 Lives in Prospect just north of the City, in early July last year she found herself with a very odd lump growing just next to her nipple. After some careful consideration and coaching from her friends, Eliza went to seek medical attention at the Women's and Children's Hospital.

Eliza had fallen to a Phantom Pregnancy so rare that even she didn't know it was happening. The Pocket was weighing her down at a whopping 7kg larger than her normal weight. It took the doctors less than 24 hours to drain the fluid and send her on her way.
