Today we are going to archive like it’s 1999 as this week’s West Coast Sentinel archive is heading back to May 13, 1999.

Included in this edition was the harrowing story of a near-fatal car crash which took place at Thevenard when two cars collided.

The week also saw Human Services Minister Dean Brown visit Streaky Bay, included a trip to the Streaky Bay Hospital, while Streaky Bay was also the scene for a major sporting event.

The Streaky Bay Whiting Bowls Carnival saw local bowlers mix it with players from other Eyre Peninsula towns and beyond for the ever-popular event.

The winter sporting seasons were also in full swing, with Far West netball and football taking place, including a match between Thevenard and Western United, won by the Penong side.
